Moses, God & "I AM"              Back to Spiritual Writings

Then Moses said to God, "Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to
them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they say to me, 'What is His
name?' what shall I say to them?"

And God said to Moses, "I AM who I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the
children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

Moreover God said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: 'The Lord
God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
has sent me to you.  This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all
generations.'"    -Exodus 3:15

Recently, I was listening to a nationally-syndicated, am radio, talk-show host express
his opinion regarding the above scripture.  I must say that I was astonished at his
interpretation.  Let me try and paraphrase his thoughts:

God's name is "I AM, " and that name means power!  Many today take God's name
in vain by using "curse" (cursing yourself) words such as, "I AM worthless; I AM
hopeless; I AM powerless."  You create what you believe and speak, so why not
create great things.  Speak, "I AM worthy; I AM holy; I AM blessed!"

As I was thinking about the radio host's words, I could not help but think about Moses
hearing God.  Religion always paints the picture of God being an old man with a
beard on a throne speaking down to a shuddering Moses.  But, where did God
speak this message to Moses?  Was God visible before him?  No, Moses heard
God from within himself.  So, when God said, "Tell them I AM sent you," He meant
Moses was operating from the power within himself by knowing and being one with
God.  Moses just simply had to hear it and be it.  You might say that Moses sent his
own self in authority by following this truth within his heart.

It is interesting how Jesus spoke in the very same manner.  He said in John's gospel,
"I AM the bread of life.  I AM the gate.  I AM the good shepherd.  I AM the way.  I AM
the light.  I AM the true vine."  The "I AM" Jesus spoke of is the same "I AM" that sent
Moses in power to Egypt.  It is the "I AM who I AM," or I AM what I BELIEVE AND
You have been given the power to create.  Socrates is quoted as saying, "Know
thyself."  That is a very deep truth.  Are you using the power within you to create a
world of suffering, lack and loss, or are you using the same power within to create
blessings, joy and peace.  Examine your heart and voice.  What are you speaking
daily? What you are speaking is creating the world around you...the seen & the
