I AM that I AM part 3

“Thus you shall say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent me unto you.”  Exodus 3:14

All that I ever was and all that I ever will be I AM; no humble man would ever make such a statement. No man with any sense would want to stay as he is, not if he is honest about the things that need to change. All that I ever hope to be, by the grace of God, is sensible; to say, I AM what I will be is audacious, arrogant, proud, and just plane not true.

When God revealed Himself to Moses as the Great I AM He was revealing Himself to His people as one who could be trusted. When James, the Apostle and first pastor of the Jerusalem church, presented God to his hearers, he said, “Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:16-17

The fact that God does not change is the point of His name I AM, there is no need for Him to change because He is perfect and complete as He is. God is perfect in knowledge, power, presence, love, and holiness; He is self-sufficient. Men only think they are! The name I AM means that God does not change; therefore, God is outside of time because time is a measure of change. Every day everything changes whether we realize it or not, even our bodies continue to reproduce them selves a trillion times over at the atomic level, from moment to moment we are never the same. God is the same!

The Christian is one who realizes God can be trusted, because He will never change what He has promised!

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
