Nehemiah 9:5 (NKJV) And the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said: “Stand up and bless the Lord your God Forever and ever! “Blessed be Your glorious name, Which is exalted above all blessing and praise!”

The Lord our God will be praised through all eternity. We will praise His glorious name. Only God Almighty, the Creator of all things can call Himself the “I AM.” For God is self-sufficient, He is self-existence, and He is immediate presence. Meaning, God’s existence is not dependent on anyone else or anything. God’s plans are not dependent upon any circumstances. God is eternally constant. He is unchangeable. God is “the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8 NKJV). And therefore, our Lord Jesus Christ rightly said “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58 NKJV). Clearly Jesus claimed to be God. He is the Jehovah, the I AM. For Jesus said “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30 NKJV). The Lord Jesus Christ is equal with the Father in every way, for He is God. And He will be with His people now and for all eternity. God will hear their cry and He will deliver them. They will receive justice and mercy. But the issue is twofold, we want to be our own “I am,” and this attitude influences our belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. We make our own plans and are determine to fulfill them no matter what. We depend on ourselves and refuse to kneel. We won’t give up control of our fate and soul. But God has put us on the spot. You must make a decision concerning Jesus. Either Jesus is the Truth or He is a liar. Either Jesus is God and Savior, or He is not. You must decide. And remember your decision does not change who Jesus is. He is the Great I AM, Jehovah, the eternal God. Your decision is to accept Jesus as Lord God and Savior or deny Him. My friend, our only hope for eternal life is to relinquish the claims of our own sovereignty and sufficiency, and cast ourselves upon the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ, Jehovah, I AM. Salvation is found only in Jesus, “for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NKJV). And those who are saved by His blood will praise His wonderful and powerful Name, singing “Now and forever, our God reigns. Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory. Yours is the Name, above all names,” the Great I AM.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
