Rebecca’s Well: ‘Jesus The Great I AM and the Great Amen’

Continued from last week

In last week’s article, Jesus described His Deity to the unbelieving Jews. “Before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58 KJV) “I am God Himself, Here and Now; I AM who I say I AM;” I Have Always Been, , And I will Always Be.” (Message Bible p. 1655) “I and the Father are One.” (John 10:30 KJV) “I AM Alpha and Omega,” and so forth.
This article continues an additional listing of “Jesus the Great I Am and the Great Amen” with an affirmative application for our lives.

Jesus takes His Divine Name “I AM” and attaches it to every basic need of mankind in ways that even a child can understand.
• I AM the Bread that satisfies hunger.
• I AM the Living Water that quenches thirst.
• I AM the Light that shines in darkness.
• I AM the Door of opportunities and all possibilities.
• I AM the Fruitful Vine that produces abundant living.
• I AM the Good Shepherd that cares for you.
• I AM the Way that leads home.

• I AM the Truth that stands forever.
• I AM the Resurrection and the Life.
• I AM the Beginning of the Creation of God.
• I AM the First and the Last, the Beginning and the Ending.
• I AM the Great Amen. I AM the Great Yes of God.
• I AM the Great Amen and the Great Yes to everything you need. (Phil 4:19)
• I AM the Great Amen and the Great Yes to all the Promises of God to You.

Note: Amen is Hebrew for Yes. When we say Amen at the end of a prayer in church or elsewhere, we are saying Yes (it is so) to what has been said. The Message Bible translates Amen as “Oh, Yes!” (p. 1958) So Jesus “The Great Amen” is also “The Great Yes” in us. The church knows the Father as One who says Yes to us by His promises through Jesus Christ. God’s yea and our Amen (yes) are together in Jesus. Consider the scripture: “For all the promises of God in Jesus are yea and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) All God’s promises get stamped with the yes of Jesus Christ in us. It’s “Christ in you the Hope of Glory.” (Colossians 1:27)

So God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting His yes within us. The Holy Ghost Himself is the Seal of the Promises of God to us.
When we believe God, the Holy Spirit Himself places His seal upon us, signifying a closed transaction.
So who is it that condemns us? It certainly is not God who gave His only son to redeem us, to save us from our sins and to be reconciled to Him. It certainly is not Jesus who loves us and laid down His life for us on the cruel cross of Calvary so we can get back home to Heaven where we came from.

“There is therefore now, no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)
You must know that “Jesus The Great I AM and The Great Amen” chose us in Himself before the foundation of the world that we should be Holy without blame before Him in love. According to the Father’s good pleasure we are adopted into the Family of God by the shed blood of Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of sins. To the praise of the glory of His grace, we are all accepted into the Beloved Family and Community of God. (Ephesians 1:4-7)

Can you affirm this statement for a more peaceful you? “I AM My Beloved’s and My Beloved is Mine …” (Song of Solomon 6:3) “I AM my Beloved’s, and His desire is toward me.” (Song 7:10)
The “Great I AM and The Great Amen” made me in His own image. He likes what He made. He loves me and I love Him. He loves and enjoys what He made. He saves me always and He never gives up on me as He works within me to restore my wholeness in Christ Jesus.
Therefore, I AM who I AM by the grace and mercy of God. I AM who Jesus says I AM. I can do whatever Jesus says I can do. ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ (Phil. 4:13). I AM me and I like what Jesus is doing in me. Furthermore, I like me.”
Amen (Oh, Yes!)
