I Am That I Am (The Sign)

My Memorial

Exodus 3:13-15

13And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?14And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.15And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.


Isaiah 48:11-12

11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.12Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.

Isaiah 48:21-22

21And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.22There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Isaiah 49:26

26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Isaiah 52:6

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

 

John 8:24

I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

 

John 8:28

Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

 

John 13:19

Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

 

John 9:9

Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

 

John 18:5

They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

 

John 18:6

As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

 

John 18:8

Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

 

The Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke do NOT include that Jesus says “I am he.”

Not once!

However, they do say ‘I am” but I believe that their account is false because their renditions of Jesus Christ makes no attempt to educate anyone in their gospels as to who He is and who He represents and what His name is!

Please read my post called Tell No Man.

These following three verses are the only time that the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke say anything remotely similar:

Matthew 26:32

But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

And this Jesus Christ is not telling the truth, because the real Jesus Christ met with Mary Magdalene the morning of the first day after He had risen and thenvisited the disciples behind closed doors that same day in the evening (when they received the Holy Spirit) and eight days later when Thomas was present with the disciples, and then He visited them at the sea of Galilee.

So this rendition of Jesus Christ was not privy to what really happened!

Mark 14:61-62

But he held his peace, and answered nothing.Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?62And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Same goes for this rendition of Jesus Christ!

Luke 22:70-71

Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.71And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

Very ambiguous and strange! Seems to me this rendition of Jesus Christ is side-stepping in his response and basically he says that he is not saying he is the Son of God but that the council is saying that he is the Son of God.

If you get my drift!

Yet

John 19:19-22

19And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.20This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.21Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.22Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

In the gospel of John

Jesus does say that I am King of the Jews!

John 19:33-37

33But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:34But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.35And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.36For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.37And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

I find it interesting that the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke do NOT include the side of Jesus being pierced and water coming out.

What this means to me is that the gospel of John is telling the truth about who Jesus really is and the other gospels are not.

I think that is what Jesus was telling us in his statements about his name in the gospel of John in the beginning of this post!

That is why the gospels do not agree with each other because some are false representations (images) of who he is, what he did, and why he came!

 

John 5:43-47

43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.46For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.47But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Isaiah 43:10-12

“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. I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “that I am God.”

John 19:19-22

19And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.20This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.21Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.22Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
