I AM THAT I AM
Exodus 3 v 13 - 15
'And Moses said to Elohim, 'See, when I come to the children of Yisrael and say to them, 'The Elohim of your fathers have sent me to you,' and they say to me, 'What is His Name?' what shall I say to them?'
And Elohim said to Moses,'I AM WHICH I AM.' And He said, 'Thus you shall say to the children of Yisrael,'I AM has sent me to you.'
And Elohim said further to Moses,
'Thus you are to say to the children of Yisrael, YAHUWAH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Yitsaq (Isaac), the Elohim of Ya'acob (Jacob), has sent me to you. This is My Name FOREVER, and this is My remembrance to ALL generations.'
If we take a look at the Hebrew words for 'I AM THAT I AM' we see that they read:
Ahayah Asher Ahayah
I Am He who exists or I was, I AM, I will be
The verb Hayah means to exist. It is a declaration of divine control of all things. It is a picture of Elohim's presence and man's faithfulness or rebellion and Elohim's intent to accomplish His plan of redemption.
HaYAH - Was, to exist, to be, come to pass
HUW - he, which is, who, that
HaWAH - to be, to exist, come to pass
YAH- UW- WAH
In Hebrew pictograph we get an even clearer picture of the character and meaning of His Name.
ALEPH HEY YOD HEY
Ox / strong Behold / life Right Arm Behold /Life
ALEPH SHIN RESH
Ox / strong Press Man/ beginning
So we can see a picture of:
The strong All powerful One who brought life through the right hand (Yahushua) behold!
The strong All powerful One who pressed the soil to form man from the beginning.
The strong All powerful One who brings life through the right hand (Yahushua) behold!
and then if we add the picture of Yahuwah :
The Right Hand that brings life through the nail behold!
What an amazing picture! HalleluYAH !
