Message for January 14, 2024 from Pastor Shirley

FOR I AM GOD                                                                                      
For when used in a sentence is to talk about a purpose or a reason for something.  There is a reason and a purpose for God to be called I AM. And it is for our greatest benefit as believers to understand the meaning of “I Am God”!  We read Exodus 3 :14 where God states His own name for the first time: “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’  And He said, ‘Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I AM has sent me to you.  Verse 15 …..This is my name forever and this is my memorial to all generations.  Yes, Yes, Yes this is for us the believers in this time!  Notes in the Spirit Filled Life Bible:  God identifies Himself as I AM WHO I AM. Revealing His divine name declares his character and attributes, reinforcing that the issue is not who Moses is, but who is with him.  This name is related to the Hebrew verb meaning “to be,” and so implies the absolute existence of God.  The Hebrew here is also the source of the English, “Yahweh,” Jehovah, “or Lord. The “I AM is still the same I AM” today.  What he did for His people then He will do the same today.  Our God brought his people out of Egyptian bondage on the authority of his name “I AM.”                                                                                                        
Malachi 3:6 “I am the Lord, and I do not change.”  While everything around us is changing, there is the one thing we can depend on and that is God – the I AM will show up on our behalf.
