 I AM

“Unless you believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.” (John 8:24).

These precious words of our Lord Jesus are a fact, not a threat.

“I AM”.

Only the Lord Jesus IS.

All else ARE NOT.

Only the Lord Jesus IS life.

All else die.

Sin is turning away from the Lord Jesus, who alone IS, to all things that ARE NOT.

The sinner turns away from the Lord Jesus, who alone IS life, and dies.

“ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS,
AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS.
THE GRASS WITHERS,
AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.” (1 Peter 1:24-25, NASB)

Man’s sin breaks our Heavenly Father’s heart.

God is Love!

“I don't want you to die, says the Sovereign LORD” (Ezekiel 18:32, NLT)

“For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NLT)

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ says to everyone, “Come to Me that you may have life and have it in all its fullness.” (John 5:40, 10:10)

“For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the LORD for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” (Isaiah 55:12,13 NKJV)


(To be continued)

 If the Lord says... by tuc

Thank you, tuc. Agree!

The sum of God’s word is truth, is Christ. (Psalm 119:160; John 17:17, 14:6, 1:1).

We are born of the Word of God and to grow by the Word till Christ is formed in us. (1 Peter 1:23, 2:2; Gal. 4:19)

By the Spirit and the Word, I am, in Christ alone. (John 16:13-15).

I am a Christian, by the Spirit and the Word, yes, I am, in Christ alone.
I am made new, by the Spirit and the Word, yes, I am, in Christ alone.
I am a son, by the Spirit and the Word, yes, I am, in Christ alone.
…………
I am, yes, I am, by the Spirit and the Word, in Christ alone.

I am saying the same thing as you, just saying it a little differently.

 Re: If the Lord says... by tuc

If the Lord says, and we believe, that is enough for it is according to our faith that it is given to us. (Matt. 9:29)

The Spirit is in the Word (John 6:63) and works mightily behind the scenes.

 #2 “I AM”, Our Lord Jesus’ Great and Awesome Name

Then Moses said to God, "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you.' Now they may say to me, 'What is His name?' What shall I say to them?" God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'" (Exodus 3:13-14 NASB)

Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am." (John 8:58 NASB)

I AM

- the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty

- Life eternal

- Love that surpasses knowledge

- Peace which surpasses all comprehension

- Power

- Great in lovingkindness

- Wisdom and Righteousness

- Provision for all needs

- Healer

- Rest from all toil

- All comfort

- Fullness of joy and pleasures forever
.
.
.
.
.

The list is beyond enumeration.

The riches of Christ are unfathomable! (Eph. 3:8)

In Him all the fullness of God dwell. (Col. 1:19)


“Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised,
And His greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalms 145:3)

 #3 “Father, I desire them to be with Me where I AM.”

“… Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Heb. 12:2 NASB)

The Lord’s joy is that He may be in us.

He prayed to His Father as the time for His crucifixion approached:

“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:24-26 NASB)

And His joy is to be our joy.

"Abide in Me, and I in you…… that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” (John 15:4,11 NASB).

We are to have the exceedingly great joy of Christ in us and being filled with all the riches and glory of His Name. This is the Lord’s desire and this must be our desire too.

We are a house for His Name.
(2 Sam.7:12-13; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:22)

“O how marvellous! O how wonderful! Is my Savior’s love for me!”

 #4 “I AM in you” – Pressing on to Lay Hold

“Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.” (Phil.3:12 NASB)


What has Christ Jesus laid hold of me for?

To be a house for His Name!


What am I to lay hold of?

To be His house filled with all the riches of His Name!

 #5 “I AM in you” – Guaranteed by God’s Great Love

"For God so loved …… He gave His only begotten Son……” (John 3:16)

“…… because of His great love with which He loved us, …… He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” (Eph. 2:4-7)

“…… to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:19 NASB)


God’s love is like the physical heart which every moment, unceasingly, beats to pump out blood that carries nutrients to every cell in the body to keep them nourished, healthy and alive.

God’s great love works every moment, unceasingly, to give Christ to us by the Spirit, through our faith.

The physical heart eventually fails but God’s love is an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3). It is a great love that will never cease, never diminish, never grow weary, never die.

Our riches in Christ are certain. Guaranteed by God’s great love.

 Re: #5 “I AM in you” – Guaranteed by God’s Great Love _ 2

God’s Great Love is God’s Great Heart of which the physical heart is a small picture.

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” (Rom. 1:20)

God’s Great Love may fill us with immense joy and happiness.

But God’s Great Love is also a mighty working and living power.
