The Ultimate Name of God: I AM

When Moses encountered God at the burning bush, he askedwhat His name was. God replied:

“I AM that I AM… You must say this to the Israelites, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” (Exodus 3:14)

God made it clear to Moses that He is eternally present. He has always been, He is now and He will always be. This name of Godalso speaks about His eternal presence with His people. He is present to help us, comfort us, guide us, and so much more… His presence never leaves you, and He will always be with you. That is the greatest comfort we can ever find, and we learn it from the very name of God: I AM.

When God revealed His name, He said: ‘I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU!’

Jesus claimed that He is the ‘I Am’, which is the very name of God!

When theJewish religious leadersheard Jesus say this,theytried to kill Him. By applying the very name of God onHimself, Jesus Christ declaredthat He is God. To the Jewsthis was the highest form of blasphemy.In the book of Revelation Jesus reveals Himself to the apostle John with a name that is very similar to ‘I AM”:

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:7-9).

Jesus Christ made it clear that He is the I AM, who appeared to Moses, He is the One who always existed and He is the one and true God who will always be.

NAMES OF GOD - Complete list from Hebrew and the Bible (7)

The following list with names of God are descriptions of who God is, what He does and what He means to us, His beloved children. These names apply to either God the Father, the Son or the Holy Spirit. Use these names of God to get a wonderful understanding of how incredibly beautifulGod is in so many different ways. He is almighty, holy, powerful and His appearance can be terrible and frightening, yet at the same time He is tender, compassionate, faithful, full of grace and mercy, our best friend. Only when we embrace the extremes of God, will we know Him as He truly is.

Jesus Christ is the roaring Lion of the tribe of Judah, who devours His enemies. And He is the Lamb of God who gave His life as a sacrifice for mankind.

A Lion and a Lamb are two extreme opposites yet Jesus Christ is both of them. Many christians only want to know Jesus as the Lamb, or the Good Shepherd. But He is also the fierce, roaring and consumingLion of the Tribe of Judah, the One Who roars from Zion, through the mouth of His prophets. Jesus Christ is both comforting and terrifying. He gives amazing grace andHe demands purity andholiness. He is our best friend and our exalted King.

Read through all the names of God and ask the Spirit of God to open the eyes of your heart, so that He can show you who He truly is, in all His majesty, love and wisdom.
