Word for the Week...JAN 16 ---22 / 2006

"Jesus said unto them, Verily verily I say unto you, before Abraham was, I Am."

There are many verses in The Bible that testify to the Pre-existence of Christ.This one is chosen because it points clearly to the fact that Christ Is/ Was/ and always Will Be/ An Essentail part of The Godhead. In other words, together with The Father and The Holy Spirit,  He Is God.                                                                                                                                                This Name 'I AM' is first mentioned in the book of Exodus,Chapter 3:14..."say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent you".You see, God Is Always in the eternal 'Now' , and that is why Jesus 'Was and Is and Is to Come'.(Rev.1:4). The Creator both Indwells and Exists outside of time, as we comprehend it. He is 'from everlasting to everlasting', Without beginning or end of days.  That is why we must worship Him...He is Immortal, and the Creator of all things.(John 1:1-3). No other person would dare to use this Title, equating himself with God Almighty.                     But Jesus used it freely...'I AM The Good Shepherd'...(John 10:11)...'I AM The Door of the sheep'...(John 10:7)..'.I AM The Bread of life' ...(John 6::35),etc.,etc.                                         Because He Is God, Christ Jesus could come into this world, Be Born without sin, and destroy the works of the enemy;satan.(1 John 3:8).Let us Praise Him afresh, being ever mindful of His Great Victory at Calvary, for us all.

May The Lord Bless you.
