The I Am: Divine Nature 1

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 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. Exodus 3:13‭-‬14 KJV

Moses’s encounter leads to a great revelation of the divine nature of God. Moses was a very educated man. His philosophical mind demanded answers when God called him from the burning bush. No one saw what he witnessed. When he is telling the story, who does he say called him from a burning bush. That is life’s most crucial question. The reason there is a preponderance of worship places is because the attendees have never asked the lead: who sent you? When we know who sent you, we will know what message you carry. Some have been sent by the god of the stomach. So they use carnal things to judge their success. This is Moses’s thought:” If I’m carrying a message of deliverance, I need to know who sent me”. God was not afraid to tell him: I Am that I Am! That is God’s self given name. It means He is self sufficient and self sustaining. In that name lies an identity and a theology.Before this, Moses and others knew God by His title: El, or Elohim, or Elshadai, the Almighty God. Later in the New Testament (John 8:58 )Jesus told the Jews, before Abraham, I Am. They understood him. He is the one in control. That’s why they wanted to stone him. In your life assignment, who sent you?
