  • I AM THAT I AM: I AM

    SCRIPTURE: JOHN 15.1-8

    CONCEPT: JESUS DESCRIBES WHO THE FATHER IS

    INTRO: MOSES IS CALLED BY GOD AND TOLD THAT HIS NAME IS I

    AM THAT I AM

    I. JESUS TOLD THE DISCIPLES THAT IF YOU HAVE ME THEN YOU

    HAVE SEEN THE FATHER.

    JOHN 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my

    Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have

    seen him.

    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it

    sufficeth us.

  • 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with

    you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that

    hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou

    then, Show us the Father?

    II. HE TOLD US IN THE DECALOGUE THIS MORNING, THAT I AM

    THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO BROUGHT YOU OUT OF THE LAND

    OF EGYPT, OUT OF THE HOUSE OF BONDAGE... WE SHALL

    HAVE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.

    - IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,WE SEE THAT HE FIRST

    BLESSES US AND THEN TELLS US TO SHOW ME YOUR

    GRATITUDE AND THANKSGIVING BY BEARING FRUIT OF

    RIGHTEOUSNESS. I SHOW YOU GRACE AND THEN YOU SHOW

    ME YOUR LOVE. I SHOW YOU MY POWER AND THEN YOU SHOW

    ME YOUR OBEDIENCE. I WILL FREE YOU AND THEN YOU

    FOLLOW ME. ILL GO TO CALVARY FOR YOU AND THEN YOU

    FOLLOW ME WITH YOUR CROSS. IN OTHER WORDS, THE RED

  • SEA, CAME BEFORE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. FIRST GODS

    GRACE THEN OUR FAITHFULNESS. I AM...

    III. JESUS MAKES 7 I AM STATEMENTS IN THE BOOK OF JOHN.

    HE SAID, IF WE KNOW HIM THEN WE WILL KNOW THE

    FATHER. THAT IF WE HAVE SEEN HIM THEN WE HAVE SEEN

    THE FATHER.

    IV. JESUS TELLS US THAT HE IS THE, I AM...

    A. THE BREAD OF LIFE (JN 6.Then Jesus said unto them, Verily,

    verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from

    heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

    For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven,

    and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord,

    evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am

    the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and

    he that believeth on me shall never thirst. (John 6:32-35 KJV))

    -SUSTENANCE/SOURCE.

  • HE IS OUR SUSTAINER. HE'S WHAT WE NEED TO MAKE IT. HE

    IS THE GREAT I AM. BUT IS HE THE ONE THAT YOU LOOK FOR

    DAILY TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED. OR DO YOU SEEK OTHER

    ENTERTAINMENT'S OTHER SUSTENANCE TO GIVE YOU WHAT

    YOU NEED TO MAKE IT. HE IS THE GREAT I AM

    A. THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (JN 8.1Then spake Jesus again unto

    them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me

    shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (John

    8:12 KJV) - GUIDANCE LEADS US, GUIDES US, IN HIM WAS

    LIFE AND THE LIFE IS THE LIGHT. BUT DO YOU WALK IN HIS

    LIGHT. IS HE YOUR LAMP. DOES HE SHINE IN YOU. OR DO

    YOU SEEK GUIDANCE FROM THE HOROSCOPE, A SCRATCH OFF

    OR SOME LESSER LIGHT. HE IS THE GREAT I AM.

    A. THE GATE/DOOR (JN 10.) Then said Jesus unto them again,

    Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All

    that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the

    sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man

    enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find

  • pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and

    to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they

    might have it more abundantly. (John 10:7-10 KJV)- ACCESS

    TO SALVATION. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE

    US A GATE, A DOOR. DO YOU ENTER THROUGH THE DOOR OF

    CHRIST OR ARE YOU TRYING SOME OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED.

    HE IS THE GREAT I AM.

    A. THE GOOD SHEPHERD (10.11,1I am the good shepherd: the

    good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an

    hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not,

    seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and

    the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling

    fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

    I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known

    of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:

    and I lay down my life for the sheep. (John 10:11-15 KJV4) -

    LEADER/SUPPORTER HE IS THE ONE WHO WATCHES OVER US

  • AND KEEPS US TOGETHER. IS HE YOUR SHEPHERD, YOUR

    OVERSEER. OR ARE YOU BEING LED BY YOUR EMOTIONS OR

    OTHER PEOPLE'S OPINION. HE IS THE GREAT I AM.

    A. THE RESURRECTION & LIFE (JN 11.25Then said Martha unto

    Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God,

    God will give it thee. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall

    rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise

    again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her, I

    am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me,

    though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth

    and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? (John

    11:21-26 KJV) - POWER TO LIVE. HE IS THE POWER TO GET

    UP AND OVERCOME. THE POWER TO HAVE VICTORY, EVEN IN

    THE DARKEST MOST DISCOURAGING TIMES. HE IS THE

    LIFTER OF OUR HEAD. IS HE YOUR RESURRECTION AND LIFE

    OR DO YOU TRY TO HOLD YOURSELF UP. PICK YOURSELF UP.

  • A. THE WAY TRUTH AND LIFE (JN 14.6) - Let not your heart be

    troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's

    house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told

    you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a

    place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;

    that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye

    know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we

    know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no

    man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:1-6

    KJV)ONLY ACCESS TO GOD AND ETERNAL LIFE. YOU CAN'T

    GET TO GOD OR TO HEAVEN ANY OTHER WAY. IS JESUS

    YOUR WAY TO GOD. OR ARE YOU TRYING TO GET THERE BY

    YOUR OWN STRENGTH, WITH YOUR OWN WAY. HE IS THE

    GREAT I AM.

    A. THE VINE (JN 15.1.5) - I am the true vine, and my Father is

    the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he

    taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth

    it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through

  • the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in

    you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in

    the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the

    vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him,

    the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do

    nothing. (John 15:1-5 KJV)ONLY WAY TO HAVE A REAL

    RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
