THE "I AM's" of CHAPTER SIX
Seventeen times in the first eight verses the Lord uses "I AM". When Moses asked the Lord who he should say sent him, the Lord said tell them I AM has sent me. EX .3:14.
The Lord said now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh. There have been many that have for a moment or so defied the Lord God of Israel but the final word is going to come from the Lord. Pharaoh thought too highly of himself and the power he thought he had was nothing when he met the Lord's power.
The Lord spoke to Moses and said I am the Lord, I appeared unto Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Here he spans the life times of three generations and now five hundred plus years later He is as powerful as ever. (He never changes.)
He tells us He has established His covenant, and friend when God makes a covenant with you, you can rest assured that He will keep it. The land of Israel (Canaan) was given to the Israelites and God is going to honor his agreement which he made with the forefathers of Israel.
I have heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. There are times we have asked, Lord how long are you going to let this go on? I for one see the condition of the world, I see the innocent suffer in wars. I see innocent people suffer from deadly disease due to no fault of their own and sometimes I ask, Lord how much longer are you going to put up with this? When God brings judgment upon a nation, He does all things well. No one can ever say I never knew or no one ever told me about the coming judgment. God in His way gives all men a chance to repent. The Scriptures tell us, God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9. But we are also warned in Luke 13:3-5 Unless you repent you shall all likewise perish.
Again He said I am the Lord and I will bring you out. You can go to bed tonight and rest assured that God will do as he has said. He will do it on his time table and not on ours. Has the Lord made you a promise? He will do as he said. In 1964 the Lord spoke to me and said I will deliver you from all evil and he said he would preserve my going out and my going in from this time forth and even for ever more. I have never had a doubt that this will not happen. ( I now have many years of his protection behind me as proof he does as he said.)
I will rid you out of their bondage. I have many times said a child of God should not be in bondage to any thing. Today the greatest need I see is for God's people to accept the deliverance that has already been provided for them. The door is open my friend but you must by faith walk through that door.
I will take you to me for a people and I will be to you a God and you shall know that I am the Lord your God. There is no other God in all the earth or in heaven. There is only the true and living God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has been making provisions for us through the ages and he will never let us down. I will bring you unto the land I swear to you.
