JOY To The World -- the LORD (the Great I AM) Has Come!
GOD said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Say this to the people of Israel, 'I AM has sent you.'" (Exodus 3:14)
And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is CHRIST the LORD." (Luke 2:10-11)
The (Samaritan) woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called CHRIST). When He comes, He will tell us all things." JESUS said to her, I who speak to you AM He. (John 4:26)
I AM the Bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst. (John 6:35) I AM the living Bread that came down from Heaven (John 6:51)
I AM the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life. (John 8:12)
Truly, truly, I say to you, I AM the Door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I AM the Door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have Life and have it abundantly. (John 10:7-10)
I AM the good Shepherd. The good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. I know My own and My own knows me. (John 10:11, 14)
I AM the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die (John 11:25-26)
I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
I AM the true Vine, you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me, you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
JESUS proclaimed Himself to be equal and one with the Great I AM -- the I AM WHO I AM who spoke to Moses -- the I AM who is the True Living GOD -- YHWH.
Those who say CHRIST was merely a great and holy Teacher cannot mean what they say -- for a great and holy teacher cannot be a liar and still be called "great and holy." Those who say He was merely a Prophet from GOD cannot mean what they say -- for a prophet's words must be 100% accurate and the Word Himself is Truth . And those who deny CHRIST's deity deny His three years' worth of miracles which validated His claim of being one with the Father -- the Great I AM. Who but GOD Himself can perform all the miracles as written in the Holy Scriptures, as well as the numerous not recorded? Who but JESUS Himself fulfilled more than 365 Messianic prophecies from the Old Testament?
CHRIST JESUS declared Himself to be the Great I AM -- is He Liar, Lunatic...or LORD?
CHRISTmas is EVERY day. TOday, will you celebrate Messiah JESUS -- our Mighty GOD, Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father...our Prince of Peace -- by totally trusting in The TRUTH?
