"I AM That I AM"

Updated: Apr 26, 2021

The very concept of God is a mind blower. He has always been with no beginning and no end – all knowing, all powerful and ever-present. There was no big bang moment when He just suddenly appeared. There was never a “start”. Even before He created the heavens and the earth, He was. As He said to Moses at the “burning bush” when Moses asked, “who shall I say sent me?” To which God said, “I Am that I Am”. He has no beginning and no end. He is that He is.

When I try to wrap my head around some of the great promises God has in store for us, I confess I have about as much success as an ant trying to comprehend “Quantum Physics”. So much of what God has prepared for us is just “pie in the sky” nonsense to the rational mind. Even my spiritual mind has trouble grasping it.

So many things that lay before us seem inconceivable to the natural mind like being changed in “the twinkling of an eye”, being caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, being transformed into a gloried body in the likeness of Christ, of Jesus returning with the angelic armies of heaven to judge world, a new heaven and a new earth and the concept of eternal life defies reason, logic and even common sense. It all seems so ridiculous, incomprehensible and beyond belief – even foolish and laughable like some supernatural fairy-tale on steroids.

I’m sure we have all have been challenged by some skeptic or “Doubting Thomas’s” who said, “Do you really believe all that stuff?” As Paul said, “But the natural man does not receive the things of God for they are foolishness to him.”

But even so, I have to be honest that there have been very candid moments when I have confessed to myself that it all seems beyond belief – And, yet I believe. This is the kind of belief that defies everything that reasons against it and that belief beyond belief is called “Faith”. Faith in His word is the bedrock of hope that I have banked my life upon for the last 52 years.
