Summary: A SERMON PREACHED PROCLAIMING GOD'S POWER IN THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
I WAS THAT I AM, I AM THAT I AM, I WILL BE THAT I AM
AM- to be, to exist. One of the hardest things for me to comprehend is the
eternalness of God. He had no beginning and He will have no end. He just is.
In Verse 14 God says, "I AM THAT I AM" THE ONE AND ONLY GOD!!!
THAT'S WHO I AM
Folks today want to bring God down to their level. THAT ONLY HAPPENED ONCE
AND IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN. They use His name in vain. They crack jokes
about Him. They make Him out to be some old man upstairs with a long beard.
He is so much more than that and that's what I want to talk about this morning.
(I) I WAS THAT I AM (verse 6)
A. Moses, I was the God of your forefathers.
Amram, your father.
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
I’m sure he had heard the stories about the men of old. Adam, Noah, all the great
men of old. I WAS THEIR GOD!!!
THAT WAS ME, who destroyed the world with water, but saved Noah and his
THAT WAS ME, who called Abraham out of Ur of the Chaldees.
Moses, that was ME, I WAS THERE!!!!!!!!
B. People this morning, this same God we worship is the same God that our forefathers worshipped.
This is the same God that the pilgrims left the safety of England to worship.
This is the same God that George Washington bowed down to asking for strength
The same God that helped this fledgling country to defeat the most powerful
nation on earth.
The same God that brought us through WWI and WWII and Korea, Vietnam, the
Gulf War, the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
HE IS THE ONE WHO BROUGHT US THROUGH OUR HARD TIMES.
HE WAS THERE
C. Folks, this God we serve is the same one that WAS THERE in the darkest hour
of our own personal lives.
Sickness, disease, the loss of a loved one, financial ruin. Whatever the case was,
GOD WAS THERE He is the God of I WAS THAT I AM
(II) I AM THAT I AM (verse 7 and 14)
A. The now, the present, Moses, I see what the Children of Israel are going through.
I see the taskmasters whipping the people for not working hard enough.
I hear their cry.
I feel their pain and sorrow. I AM HERE RIGHT NOW.
B. The now, the present, God knows what is happening in your life.
You may think it's a secret and nobody knows. God does.
There may be times in your life when you feel all alone.
God is right there my friend.
There may be times when you're like Moses. "I can't do this Lord"
There may be times when you feel like you can't put another foot in front of the other.
God is right there my friend.
Psalms 63:8 "My soul followeth hard after thee, thy right hand upholdeth me"
I'm clinging to you Lord, because You hold me.
Sometimes the little boy in me
Wants to climb upon my Fathers knee
When the world outside gets too big for me
When the fear’s too much for me to hide
And my fondest dreams have almost died
He always understands me when I say
Now that I’m grown and old
That doesn’t mean that I’m brave and bold
But oh I want so much to serve You
So I’ll follow if You lead the way
If I know You’re not too far away
Just close enough to hear me when I say
