"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you" (Ex.3:14).

Who is this that speaks from the burning bush upon the mountain? It is the very same person that speaks through out the gospel writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. It certainly is no mistake that the Lord Jesus Christ told the Pharisees that, "before Abraham was I am"(John 8:56). Our blessed Saviour did not have His beginning at Bethlehem, He is the everlasting God. Yes, He was manifested in the flesh as a real man in time (1Tim.3:16). However, let us never forget that He at no time stopped being God (John 1:14). Someone has put it, "He remained what He was (Almighty God) and He became what He was not (flesh)." Especially through the gospel recorded in John, our Lord identifies Himself as the, "I AM." Here are several scriptures to think upon this week.
