The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are saved”. The stay in the wilderness, a place of resentment, loneliness, helplessness, brokenness, or more likely a place to probe the Lord in quietness for the confirmation of the truth shown to us on the mount, is actually an opportunity to experience the Holy One of Israel indwelling our being and the infinite universe.….
“What will I tell pharoah, the world temporal power, that who sent me?”, Moses asks our Father, the Holy One of Israel (Chukwu Okike Abiama).
Always, in our wilderness experience, where we are striving and learning how to live by Faith, the sole ingredient required to please our Most loving Father, there is always a pharoah to contend with, not with physical might but with spiritual strength, our total resolution that our Father is the only Power.
To be able to meet pharoah head on and overcome him/her/ or it, we must go to pharoah, the temporal powers of the world in the name of the Lord, I AM. Our most loving Father asks Moses (you and me that are still striving to live by faith) tell pharaoh that I AM THAT I AM sent me. I AM is my name forever.
Our Father is Spirit; therefore, His offspring are definitely spirit. The Father and His offspring must be one. The Son is forever the Father in expression. This is a universal and absolute Truth – the Truth that my Father and I are one. However, in our human nature this is not so because the many in Israel will not recognise Spiritual identity. The many in Israel pierce the appearance of Jesus Christ, the begotten son of God who is the reality of our being. The many in Israel prefer to drink from the cup of belshazzer, and not from the Cup of Christ Jesus. The many in Israel will not accept their identity as the branch of the one Tree of life, Christ Jesus.
Therefore, we are commanded in the scripture to go tell pharaoh (whatever temporal power that confronts you) not in physical strength, not in any other name but in the Name of the Lord; that I AM THAT I AM has sent us. Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit, says the Lord. Go tell pharaoh that I AM hath sent me. I AM THAT I AM is my name forever. I AM is spiritual identity realized. I AM is to pray in spirit and Truth. I AM is the name of our Father eternally. Therefore, when we live in I AM, in the realization that I and my Father are one; that all that my Father is I am; that I am spirit, then the name of the Lord becomes a strong tower where we run into and are saved from the onslaught of any temporal power in the world.
So, we want no concept of ourselves. We want the freedom of knowing that I am Spirit; nothing else than knowing that I Am. This is the truth about our oneness with our Most loving Father that sets us free – our Father IS, I Am. Perhaps you have voiced I Am very often, not perceiving its majesty, its might, its tremendous force, and power. When you realize that I Am is the name of God (Christ assures us, “Pray in my name”; that name is I); “ I AM is my name throughout all time. Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you ”. “I Am the life and the resurrection”. Can you make a concept of that? No! There can be no concept of that; the human mind cannot handle that, but our heart where Christ dwells can. There is only the knowledge that I Am, always have been, and always will be the seven Spirit of God indwelling man. That is the relationship we have with our Most Gracious Father. God IS and I AM. I alone live in man. I created man and I live in man. I Am the substance of man. I Am life. There is no concept, but a knowing consciousness.
The name of the Lord (I AM, spiritual identity realised) is eternally our Security, Shield, Safety, an Assurance.
And 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? 14 And 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.
