In Exodus 3:13, Moses ask God, what name should I tell the people of Israel when they ask “Who sent you to us.” God says to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.

H.E. Gowan, Studies in the Sacred Name;
“Perhaps the vast possibilities implied can be more fully grasp if we give the verb – as is now done by most scholars – a future since: I WILL BE THAT I WILL BE.

Herbert Lockyer, All the Messianic Prophecies (pg 40)
“In our pre-existent, pre-eminent Lord, we have the promise of strength, counsel, protection, provision, guidance, and thousand other possessions.”

God Declared I AM & Jesus Declared

John 7:29 – AMP I know Him Myself because I am from Him [I came from His very presence] and it was He [personally] who sent Me.”

John 16:28 NASB I came from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father.”

John 17:24 NASB Father, I desire those You have given Me to be with Me where I am. Then they will see My glory, which You have given Me because You loved Me before the world’s foundation.more

Drawing Near“In these last days [God] has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things” (Heb. 1:2).

Since Jesus is the Son of God, He is the heir of all that God possesses.

When Christ first came to earth He became poor for our sakes, that we, through His poverty, might be made rich (2 Cor. 8:9). He had nothing for Himself—He had “nowhere to lay His head” (Luke 9:58). Even His clothes were taken from Him when He died, and He was buried in a tomb that belonged to someone else.

It is beyond our understanding to imagine that the Galilean carpenter who was crucified like a common criminal, naked and bleeding on a cross outside the city of Jerusalem, is the King of kings and Lord of lords. But He is!

As the Son of God, Jesus is the heir of all that God possesses. The apostle Paul explains that all things not only were created by Christ but also for Him (Col. 1:16). Everything that exists will find its true meaning only when it comes under the final control of Christ.

The psalms predicted that Christ would one day be the heir to all that God possesses. The Father, speaking to the Son, says, “Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Thy possession'” (Ps. 2:8). God also declared, “I also shall make Him My first-born, the highest of the kings of the earth” (Ps. 89:27; cf. Col. 1:15). “First-born” refers to legal rights—especially those of inheritance and authority.

When Christ comes to earth again, He will completely and eternally inherit all things (Rev. 11:15). And because we have trusted in Him, we are to be “fellow heirs with Christ” (Rom. 8:16-17). When we enter into His eternal kingdom, we will jointly possess all that He possesses. We will not be joint Christs or joint Lords, but will be joint heirs. His marvelous inheritance will be ours as well.

Suggestions for Prayer

Thank God for making you a joint heir with Christ. Thank your Lord for allowing that to happen through His death on the cross.

For Further Study

Read Revelation 5:1-14 and 11:15-18, noting how the inhabitants of heaven respond to Christ.

Who Are We Throwing Away?


Where does your faith stand? Who is Jesus to you? Who’s truth are you listening to? Does it line up with scripture? The rapture (catching away) can occur anytime and nothing has to happen for this to occur. Are you ready if this happens? Are you ready to meet God or be left here? Is what you know the absolute Truth and have you asked for your heart to be examined? Do you examine your heart?

2 Corinthians 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Or do you yourselves not recognize that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless you fail the test.

Galatians 6:4 But each person should examine his own work, and then he will have a reason for boasting in himself alone, and not in respect to someone else.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 Instead, just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please men, but rather God, who examines our hearts.

Revelation 2:23 I will kill her children with the plague. Then all the churches will know that I am the One who examines minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your works.

Luke 2:10 NASB But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people:11 Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.

Truth About Jesus – The Great I AM Part 3


Exodus 3:13 ESV Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.'”

The Old Testament prophets, inspired by the Holy Spirit, told of a coming Messiah. Jesus the Messiah came and He described Himself in many ways including, I AM.

God called Moses to Egypt to set the Israelites free from being under the bondage of Pharaoh. Moses ask God, who do I tell the people sent me. God calls Himself, “I am who I am,…I AM has sent you.

God describes Himself, I AM That I AM…. read more

Last Days Warnings


By Hal Lindsey

As the world reels under the impact of the latest Middle East crisis, many are discovering that the events are fitting into a larger pattern of precisely predicted events.

The pattern is to be found woven through the Hebrew prophets from Moses to Jesus Christ and John the Apostle. The prophecies were made during a period of from 3500 to 1900 years ago.

Throughout these predictions, it’s clear that the events are to lead to a final seven-year period of world catastrophe. This period will climax with a global war of such magnitude that only the personal, visible return of Jesus Christ to this planet will prevent man from self-annihilation.

THINGS WE ARE SEEING
Listed below are 20 pieces of this pattern which are unmistakably coming together simultaneously for the first time in history…. read more

What Is Truth?


John 18:37 ESV 38 Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”

“Pontius Pilat was the Roman governor of Judea from A.D. 26-36, serving under Emperor Tiberius.” (gotquestions.org)

In the bible Pontius Pilat is the one who dealt with the religious leaders of the Jews concerning their insistence that Jesus be killed by crucifixion. He was involved in the trials, beatings, and finally giving way to the people by sending Jesus to His death.

That was thousands of years ago and yet the same question is ask today, what is truth?

The worldly and God define truth differently. The world defines truth as:

1. Something is true when it agrees with my or societies reality
2. Something is true if I think or feel it is true
3. Something is true when it can not be changed by my feelings or thoughts

The world which defines truth as relative, is only relative to each individual. In other words people define truth compared to their definition of lie, truth, and what they accept…. read more

Truth About Jesus – In The Beginning Part 2


Bible – Written word of God | Jesus – Living word of God

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

In The Beginning

It is not that God has a beginning or end but the world and mankind have a beginning and end. Does this include Christ Jesus?

John 1:1 ESV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

v1) In the beginning
Before time existed was the Word. The Word is Christ. The Word, Christ, was with God. The Word, Christ, is God

v2) In the beginning
Christ Jesus pre-existed. Christ, God, is self-existing.

Beginning-746-arxe- properly, from the beginning (temporal) sense), i.e. “the initial (starting) point”; (figuratively) what comes first and therefore is chief (foremost), i.e. has the priority because ahead of the rest (“preeminent”) (biblehub.org)…. read more
