Per the Biblical story surrounding Moses, the proclamation “I AM THAT I AM”, has been said to be the name of God.
However, for centuries many still struggle to comprehend the true meaning behind this ‘profound’ statement.
There are many individuals with doctrines in Theology who have devoted their entire lives studying and interpreting certain powerful statements in the Bible, and even their interpretation usually creates more confusion.
I have come to realize that when you discover “Who YOU TRULY Are” ; you begin to understand the ‘true’ meaning behind statements such as “I AM THAT I AM!” In other words, the ‘truth’ begins to gradually reveal itself in everything.
What I find interesting is I am someone who has never read the Bible from beginning to end; but I seem to see clarity in scripture that most religious followers are blind to. Thus, there are people who have degrees in Theology and are ‘supposedly’ well versed in the Biblical doctrine and yet they still fail to provide a ‘rational’ theory in regards to profound Biblical verses.
Why is this?
Well, the question is simple; the Bible is NOT an ‘intellectual’ book, it is a book of ‘Enlightenment.’ Therefore, the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of a Theologian is useless; considering there is no ‘Academic’ degree that will ever trump the ‘Spiritual’ degree of ‘KNOWING!’.
So, with this being said, here is my ‘rational’ theory as it relates to the powerful statement of:
“I AM THAT I AM!”
First and foremost I have come to realize that there is something missing from this statement that actually reveals it’s sacred meaning. And although this something extra may appear to be small, it ‘unleashes’ the true power of this statement. And that little something extra is—a semicolon (;)
This powerful punctuation mark exposes the true meaning of: “I AM THAT; I AM!”
Here’s how it works:
‘THAT’ what you confess to be—YOU BECOME! Hence, “I AM ‘THAT’; I AM!”
Ok, here’s a clearer illustration for you:
While using the expression “I AM ‘THAT’; I AM”, I want you to replace the word ‘THAT’ with a ‘conditioned’ idea of who you ‘think’ you are.
For an example:
I AM ‘BLACK’; I AM
I AM ‘WHITE’; I AM
I AM A ‘SINNER’; I AM
I AM ‘WEAK’; I AM
I AM ‘INFERIOR’; I AM
I AM A ‘CHRISTIAN’; I AM
I AM AN ‘ATHEIST’; I AM
I AM A ‘REPUBLICAN’; I AM
I think you get the portrait….However, please know whether you verbalize it or ‘think’ it; the power of the “I AM” statement bears the same result.
See, whatever or whoever ‘YOU’ proclaim to be, your subconscious mind ensures that you honor this concept.
Meaning; you subconsciously or ‘automatically’ begin to oblige a man-made idea of who you ‘believe’ you are simply by uttering the two most powerful words ‘unknown’ to man—“I AM” and then B.A.M!!!! ‘B’elieve ‘A’nd ‘M’anifest YOUR REALITY!
Hence, whatever you say you are; then becomes your reality.
Beyond our darkest fears what we human beings have yet to experience is the following:
I AM ‘GOD’; I AM
Until we overcome and lay to rest this ‘childish’ notion of this Universe; which of course no human being can ever measure up to, then we will never be free.
Our freedom is contingent upon us ultimately realizing that the true identity of God or this Universe is simply LOVE! Therefore, proclaiming to be God should not be considered blasphemy; because in truth it’s our ‘natural’ birthright!
Jesus, who was one of the most enlightened human beings to ever exist, innately knew the true meaning of this powerful statement and never once did he proclaim to be this idolized ‘FEAR’ driven, omnipotent ‘male idea’of this Universe that we have all been ‘conditioned’ to worship and believe in.
Thus, when Jesus said; I AM ‘GOD’; I AM—He was simply saying: I AM ‘LOVE’; I AM!
