I cried, "Who art thou?"
He answered, "I AM, I AM".
His voice so strong and powerful;
I dropped to my knees in fear.
I cried, "Who art thou?"
He answered, "I am the Lord of Lords and King of Kings,
I am the Savior of the world".
I cried, "My God, who art thou?"
He answered me softly, "I am the Holy Lamb,
Fear not my child; I AM I AM".
Exodus 3:14, KJV '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.' This passage of scripture reveals several different aspects about God's character. William McDonald in his Believer's Bible Commentary states, "The name proclaims God as self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, and sovereign."
'I AM' signifies that God is not some fairy tale character, but He truly exists. He is not a 'has been' God; but He is a 'now' God. Jehovah is the fountain of life from which flows all blessings and favor: One who exists in the present, past and future. He is 'Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever". Hebrew 13:8, KJV
Furthermore, 'I AM' teaches us that God is omnipresent. He will always remain the 'I AM' for every creature; for God has dominion over all things. God will be all things to those who do His will, for I AM tell us that God's grace is sufficient for every need.
'I AM' seems like such a simple statement of who God is; yet, 'I AM' is complex because it portrays a magnitude of beautiful characteristics which our Heavenly Father possesses. 'Who is like unto the Lord, our God, who dwelleth on high?' Psalms 113:5, KJV
