The Letter I

Pam at Gray like Snuffie is hosting The ABC's of the WORD every Thursday and today's letter is I as in "I am late posting and I am just rolling out of bed at 6:45" and, "I am so sorry for my tardiness." So I thought for the Letter "I" would post some scriptures on the "I am' s of God."
One of my favorite ways to study scripture is through cross reference. So here we go.

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM," and He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, "I AM has sent me to you."

Isaiah 43: 10 & 11
"You are My witnesses," says the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. I, even I am the LORD, and besides Me there is no savior.

Isaiah 43: 13
"Indeed before the day was, I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?"

Isaiah 43: 15
I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King."

Isaiah 43:25
"I, even I am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I WILL NOT REMEMBER YOUR SINS."

Isaiah 44:6
"Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: "I am the First and the Last; Besides Me there is no God."

John 8:57 & 58
Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet 50 years old, and have You seen Abraham?" Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."

John 18: 5
"Whom are you seeking?" They answered Him, Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am He."

Revelation 1:8
" I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

If you would like to help us Stir up God's Word in our (your) hearts stop over at Pam's blog Gray Like Snuffie. And now I am (me) going to be late for work. I hope everyone has a day filled with heavenly blessings.

Sometimes I think I need to stop and really ponder the "I am's" of the Bible. The awe of knowing "I AM"---

Such a wonderful study of the great I Am! One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 43:25, Praise Him for blotting out my transgressions! He wants to do that for everyone, if they would only realize they are sinners in need of a Savior!

I'm running behind this week, and I just got my verse posted today. I hope you'll stop by and see me!
