I AM THAT I AM
EHYEH ASHER EHYEH

THE GOD OF TIME

By David Ben Yakov

One of the nicest things about serving the living GOD is that His ways are simplistic and following Him and loving Him is very easy. There are those throughout history who have strived to changed a relationship with Yahweh into complicated and sometimes impossible edicts that make Yahweh look like a cold and unapproachable God, but in reality, He's standing with arms continually open, ready for embrace.

We can see this simplicity in a scripture in Exodus. In this scripture, Moses is standing on Mount Sinai and he is having communion with Yahweh. The scripture says:

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?

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.

And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Exodus 3:13-15

A very simple phrase, "I AM," describes the Lord of The Universe. Some have gone to extensive lengths to complicate the character of Yahweh, but in the end Yahweh simply says, I AM. But is "I AM" overly simplified? Someone might think in their mind, "okay, so you are, big deal, we all are." But if you look at the structure of the words in the phrase, there is much more to "I AM," than meets the eye. The Name, spelled out in Hebrew, and read from right to left, is:

Transliterated out into the English language, it reads, "Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh" or {Eh-yah Ash-air Eh-yah}, meaning I AM That I AM. The word Ehyeh has some strange characteristics. It has an imperfective aspect, which is another way of saying that it could mean the same thing but in different aspects of that same thing. For instance, it could mean "I Was," "I Am Presently," or "I Will Be," all in the same instance. In this way, Yahweh is showing us that He has been and always will be the God over time and space. A quick check of the Internet showed that Jewish scholars come to the same conclusion about the meaning of the name, "I AM."

I am that I am
Hertz, J.H., ed. THE PENTATEUCH AND HAFTORAHS; p 215, ( Soncino ) 1956

I will be what I will be
Hertz, J.H., ed. THE PENTATEUCH AND HAFTORAHS; Rashi, p 215, ( Soncino ) 1956

I am who I am
Sarna, Nahum M., EXPLORING EXODUS: THE HERITAGE OF BIBLICAL ISRAEL; p 52, NY: Schocken Books, 1986.

I will be what I want to be
S.R. Hirsch from Plaut, p 405

I will be what tomorrow demands
Plaut, p 405

Such a thing isn't foreign to the English language. Just a minute of thinking brought me to the phrase, "I see." Now, if someone shows me something and it clicks in my thoughts and I voice the phrase "I see," I could mean several things, depending on the scenario of the story. If the story was past tense, by saying "I see" I would be telling the person that I see in my mind's eye what had happened. If I say the same phrase in a present tense I would be telling the person that I currently see what is happening. And finally, if they were presenting something to me in a future tense the phrase would mean that I can imagine the results of what they have mapped out. With one word I can say, I saw, I currently see or I foresee.

Melech David expressed this so well in Psalm 46. Note: The colors in the scripture below denote; Present, Future and Past:

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Psalm 46:1-11

Melech David shows us that Yahweh is ever present; past, present and future; whenever trouble arises, Yahweh will be there to protect and deliver us from harm. David reminds us of the works of Yahweh to encourage faith and he also tells us about the future, the New Jerusalem where Yahweh will still be our protection and strength. I Was, I AM and I Will Be.

We see the eternal and unchanging Yahweh in several instances in scripture:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7

And

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Isaiah 46:9-10

And

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15

And

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8

And

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8

And

Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: Revelation 1:11

And

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Revelation 21:6

And

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:13

Isaiah 9:6-7 is a wonderful scripture. There can be no doubt to those who take the Bible seriously that this paragraph of words declares Yeshua Ha Mashiach to be the Mighty God and in accord with The Everlasting Father. A word study shows the following:

(Strongs - Mighty) H01368    - gibbowr {ghib-bore'} or (shortened) gibbor {ghib-bore'} = strong or mighty

(Strongs - God)  H0410     - 'el {ale} = 1) god, god-like one, mighty one; a) mighty men, men of rank, mighty heroes; b) angels; c) god, false god (demons, imaginations); d) God, the one true God, Jehovah.

So, taken in context, the text is saying that Yeshua is actually Yahweh. Scholars in some cults, like the Jehovah's Witness's have corrupted the meaning to be angel, thus they say that Yeshua is actually Michael the archangel. But we can plainly see that their translation is bad because Michael the archangel could never be the Everlasting Father. While we're on the subject of the Everlasting Father, let's look at the Hebrew translation of those two words:

(Strongs - Everlasting) H05703     -  `ad {ad} = 1) perpetuity, for ever, continuing future; a) ancient (of past time); b) for ever (of future time); 1) continuous existence; c) for ever (of God's existence)

(Strongs - Father) H01     -  'ab {awb} = 1) father of an individual 2) of God as father of his people 3) head or founder of a household, group, family, or clan 4) ancestor

The word "father" can have two different meanings, but they can be used of the same person. While no one truly understands the complexity of the triune nature of God, we have some evidence from Yeshua himself of His special relationship with the Father:

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. John 17:21

The Greek word for "one" is heis {hice}; and it doesn't mean one, as in "one in purpose," (although that is true too) but it literally means one, as in the number one. So, someone could take that information and also the information above and paraphrase it as:

"El Shaddai (God Almighty), the ever perpetual, past, present and future and continuous Father and head and founder of all who call on His name."

That is quite a title for Yeshua Ha Mashiach; but after being obedient to His Father, even to the cross, a very deserving title to say the least. And the really beautiful thing is that the plan of El Shaddai to send His Son to the cross was made even before time began:

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8

Other references about Yahweh's plans for mankind, even before mankind was created can be found in: Matthew 13:25, 25:34; Luke 11:50; John 17:24; Ephesians 1:4; Hebrews 4:3, 9:26; 1 Peter 1:20 and Revelation 17:18. All of the proceeding scriptures show that even before the fall of mankind and all of creation, Yahweh cared enough to provide the solution to a problem that didn't even exist yet.

 Getting back to the Isaiah 9 scripture, we have to look at two other words that show Yahweh to be God over time. The first is in the phrase, "there shall be no end," when talking about His government. The word for end is:

(Strongs - End)  H07093      qets {kates}  -  1) end  a) end, at the end of (of time) b) end (of space)

Hence, Yahweh is saying that his government will have no ending and there is no limit to the space that it will consume. Endless time to grow in endless volume.

The next word is the word that is used to describe the time frame of that government's judgment and justice; forever:

(Strongs - for Ever) H05769      `owlam {o-lawm'} or `olam {o-lawm'}  -  1) long duration, antiquity, futurity, for ever, ever, everlasting, evermore, perpetual, old, ancient, world a) ancient time, long time (of past) b) (of future) 1) for ever, always 2) continuous existence, perpetual 3) everlasting, indefinite or unending future, eternity.

Again we see an eternal theme to something that we in the temporal world see as starting at a certain time. To us, we think that the scripture suggests that all of this started after the crucifixion. But in all actuality, all of this started in eternity. "Olam" says that the process isn't just in antiquity, but it is perpetual and moves into the future; forever past and forever to be. But we must never forget that we are now walking through eternity, we just can't comprehend it in our finite state.

In the Isaiah 46:9-10 scripture (which we have looked at in-depth in other papers) we see Yahweh telling us that He has prepared history in advance. He shows us this by writing down history before it happens. This is called prophecy, and it's fulfillment in the physical realm is proof positive that Yahweh is the God of Time.

In the Isaiah 57:15 scripture, Yahweh describes Himself as the High and Lofty one who Inhabits Eternity. The word for "inhabits" means "his abode." The word eternity, interestingly enough, is the same word that is used in the Isaiah 9:6-7 to mean everlasting. See Strongs H05703 for the word, "'ad."

The Hebrews 13:8 scripture is self explanatory. I just means that Yeshua (Yahweh) is never changing and that He has remained the same for eternity.

The scriptures from Revelation all proclaim Yeshua to be the Alpha and Omega; and ; Hebrew equivalents are and transliterated Alef and Taw. Note that in the concordance I used the Greek letters for Alpha and Omega were in lower case. I don't know why it was done that way, but for study clarity, I will do so too. In his proclamation, Yeshua is saying that He is the first and the last, but when you get down to brass tacks, He is every letter between. He is from eternity past, He's eternity present, and He is eternity future. Another interesting side note to this was found in a lecture by Chuck Missler of Koinonia House at www.khouse.org which says:

The Jewish rabbis have a quaint way of expressing this very idea: they say that they will not understand the Scriptures until the Messiah comes. But when He comes, He will not only interpret each of the passages for us, He will interpret the very words; He will even interpret the very letters themselves; in fact, He will even interpret the spaces between the letters!

This gives us a hint of the multidimensional aspect of the Bible, Yahweh's Word. Imagine if you would a page of the Bible. Now imagine it being in a setting outside of our present reality; okay, I mean in Heaven. It is possible that the text, instead of reading just from left to right, or as in the case of Hebrew, from right to left; might read down into the page to some unknown depth and above the page to an unknown height. It could be like some sort of gigantic multifaceted crossword puzzle. I say that because someone (I think it was Jim Wilhelmsen) who was pondering if perhaps the Bible is the "Lamb's Book of Life," and that the names of all of the redeemed are recorded in it. So I believe that the Rabbinical phrase above is probably more accurate than the Rabbi's ever even imagined.
 

TIME AND THE EFFECTS OF ENTROPY:

Like it or not, we all suffer from a law of physics called the Law of Entropy. In layman's terms, the law states that everything in the physical realm will decay unless acted upon by an outside force. We've all heard phrases like, "let time take it's toll," or "the ravages of time;" and we just let those phrases pass by us without realizing that it is entropy.

Anyone who is honest with themselves and their thought process can not deny that humanity has been taking a downward turn where morals and values are concerned. What was considered unspeakable fifty years ago is now common practice. I need not go into any elaboration because we all know of at least one instance where this is true, if not many more than one. But the decadence of human values is entropy in overdrive because mankind is receiving help in this degradation; that help being from the evil forces that are at war with mankind. By this I refer to the evil angelic and demonic forces. To further the degeneration, people in large have forsaken the only one who can stop and reverse entropy; Israel's Yahweh who is the Yahweh of all who call on His name.

You see, El Elyon never changes. His precepts and ways have always been the same and always will. His command has always been for His followers to:

For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. Leviticus 11:45

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:4

You see, all of those people that are running around shouting that the Bible, Christianity and Judaism are outdated and obsolete are really living a delusion. Since Yahweh is the God over Time he has to be never changing; always the same throughout eternity in not only His demeanor, but in his justice, laws, precepts and His love for mankind. Yahweh never changes, but people do. People change because of the effects of the sin nature that they themselves won't surrender to the Almighty.

A lot of people make "time" their god. This is no different than the person who worships an idol or someone who looks to the stars for answers. We've all done it and probably without even knowing that we have done it. When we're kids we put Yahweh on a shelf so that we can have the time to play with our friends. Then we kept Him on the shelf because we have homework and school. But children are with excuse until the age of accountability. In High School we put Yahweh on the shelf because we want to pursue our academics and we also want to satisfy our hormonal urges and our ever present libido. We don't take time for Yahweh when we leave primary school because we don't have that time. We have to start our working career or we have to study in college for a career. Then when college is finished the working career starts so Yahweh stays shelved. We don't have the time to take Him off of the shelf because of work, and we have started families which take up more time. When the kids are grown and out of the house we take the time to enjoy each other in relative peace, but soon the grandkids come on the scene and the social life continues with our friends. Then the age of retirement comes and we figure we can finally relax from our labors. We crave the free time and want to do all of those things that were not done because of our former busyness. By this time Yahweh has been on the shelf for so long that the dust He has collected makes him barely recognizable. In the thought process we reckon that we've made it this far without Yahweh, why should he be pulled off of the shelf. But finally, when our time comes to an end, Yahweh gets dusted off and perhaps if a person is honest with themselves, they'll admit that they need Yahweh in their final hours.

The preceding was the account of so many lives of people who have made "time their god." They've spent so much time trying to cram life into their short life span that they've neglected the true God; the one that brings quality to life as well as quantity. Yeshua has stood at many doors (people's hearts) and knocked on that door only to be ignored. "Go Away!, I don't have time for you," is what He has heard on countless occasions. But like a faithful friend, Yeshua keeps knocking on that door, hoping that perhaps that particular day the person will answer the door and invite Him in. He once said:

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

So what did Yeshua mean by that? He was saying that He has come to give each person, not more time, but to give us more quality in the short time that we have on this earth. He wants our lives to be so that when we finally get to a ripe old age, we can look at what our lives have been and we will see a cornucopia full of good fruit instead of the decaying putrid fruit that would have been there if we hadn't had Him in our lives. He wants to help us to use our TIME more wisely and more productively. The only way that we can do that is to live a relationship with El Shaddai through our Messiah Yeshua. In His most glorious fashion, Yahweh tells us:

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Titus 3:5

When we have a relationship with El Shaddai through Messiah Yeshua we are renewed every day. He protects us from the spiritual entropy that tries to run us down and ruin our lives. Each day this life tries to burn, cut, mutilate and destroy our souls and spirits, but Yahweh keeps up our maintenance, washing and waxing us daily to keep us shiny and clean.

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lamentations 3:23

Do you remember the wonderful hymn that was inspired by the scripture above?:

     Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
     There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
     Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
     As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

     Refrain:
     Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
     Morning by morning new mercies I see;
     All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
     Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.

     Summer and winter and spring-time and harvest,
     Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
     join with all nature in manifold witness
     To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

     Refrain

     Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
     Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
     Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
     Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
 

WE NEED TO WALK OUTSIDE OF TIME:

Well, you probably think that I've completely gone off my nut by titling this section the way that I have. Well, I've always been a little odd anyway, so why not push the envelope (smile). Now I'm not promoting or endorsing things like astral projection or OBE (out of body experiences) but only the things of Yahweh.

To put if frankly, those of us who have accepted Yeshua as our Passover Lamb; our sacrificed Lamb who took away our sins; we live in a different kingdom. We still live in our physical bodies on this wretched planet, but our spirits walk in the spiritual realm with Yeshua.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. John 18:36
*Note: He was speaking about some of the Jewish leaders, not all Jews!

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 15:19

And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth:  thy word is truth. John 17:13-17

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; John 17:20
*Note: The prayer is for all true believers throughout history.

From the evidence above, spoken by Yeshua Himself, we can see that as being true believers in Yeshua we are no longer citizens of this world. We might have to live in it, but we are no longer of it. We can be equated as being ambassadors to this world for the Kingdom of God. It's quite simple a thought; really it is. We can relate to this idea if we take a look at John Adams, the second President of The United States. John Adams was made the U.S. Ambassador to England in 1785. Since Mr. Adams had quite recently been a subject of England, having been born in the colonies prior to the Revolution, he was quite familiar with the ways of the English. He spoke the language fluently, knew most if not all of the customs and was well aware of protocol in English affairs.

The same can be said of every Born Again believer in Messiah Yeshua. We were naturally born here on earth. We were formally citizens of this world and know the ins and outs of earthly society. We live, work, sleep and have some measure of pleasure in this world, but our kingdom is not of this world; we represent the Kingdom of God. It is because of our ambassadorship that we are encouraged to walk in the Spirit:

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:25

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:4

Note that the scriptures above all capitalize the word "Spirit," which denotes that we have to walk in the Ruach Ha Kodesh. Our spirits must walk in accordance with the Ruach Ha Kodesh; and when that is done, we are walking outside of time. I mean, we all do anyway, but the Ruach Ha Kodesh helps us to realize and to identify with what true spiritual walking is. Really neat things happen in the lives of those who walk in the Ruach. Just read the Book of Acts and see the astounding things performed by the Ruach through the Apostles.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:

Well, I wouldn't be a very good writer and might not be too convincing; showing lack of experience, if I didn't share experiences that showed that I know what I am talking about. So I will now attempt to do so. For those of you who can identify with what I'm about to write, please excuse me because I don't mean to be redundant, but I have to voice this to the others.

Several years ago I had the opportunity to attend what was probably the best church I would ever attend. It was so good that it spoiled me and I have gone to other fellowships grading them on my past experiences at this one church. All others have been light years away from the Vineyard Christian Fellowship, which met in Placerville, California. I will explain.

I love worshipping Yahweh. I like a good message during a service, but worship is my main focal point. Why is this so, do you ask? Well, simply because:

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalm 22:3

It's wonderful to actually know that when we who believe in His Name praise that very Name, that Yahweh actually inhabits (lives) in those words that we sing or voice in adoration.

So many churches that I've visited in the past ten years or so like to practice "churchianity." Basically, this is a practice where a fellowship will get locked into either an old tradition or a new one that they just can't seem to break free from. Some churches have grown so large that they shorten their service times and try to cram two hours into a one hour service. The part that suffers the most is worship, and I've noted that it is the same in every church that I have visited in the past few years, an exception being Harvest Church in Washington, North Carolina; where there is wonderful worship.

I started to notice this trend back in the late 1980's in an Assembly of God church that I attended. Here is what happens. The worship leader starts worship and it is going really well. There are two songs that are sung and then either the worship leader or the pastor stops the flow to give announcements or to tell people that they're really not getting into the worship like they're supposed to. Well, if you didn't just pour water on the fire, maybe we would be getting into worship right now; is always my reply. Then, after the fire is quenched the worship starts up again but never regains the vigor it had at first. So, let me now equate what gets quenched by this practice.

The Vineyard Church was unique indeed. The services were usually an hour and a half long. Of that time, about fifteen minutes was preaching time and the other hour and fifteen minutes was nonstop worship. It was so great, singing to Yahweh in that manner. As is mentioned in the scripture above, Yahweh really does inhabit the praises of his people. I can't describe in human tongue the feelings that I would get when we worshipped in that church. It was as if the world was shut off for the worship time and we were in the presence of Yahweh Himself. All anxiety, fear or any other negative emotion that might have come with me to the service just melted away in a peace that is inexplicable. And guess what; time seemed to stop!  I feel that those of us in that service were actually transcending time and space and were worshipping before Yahweh in Heaven. There were times when I would get lightheaded and have to sit down and there were times when I actually felt like I was floating with my feet off of the ground. I never looked down to check it out because I was in such ecstasy that really didn't care if I was floating or not. And to top it all off, the church would act in conjunction with other Vineyard Churches and have what they called "Celebration" times. They would usually meet once a month and everyone would worship for two or three hours without stopping. Wow, how Yahweh has blessed me during my short life. At these times the following scripture really hit home:

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

I felt that peace once before I was a believer. My mother had taken me to a healing service at an Assembly of God church in Toms River, New Jersey one night in 1979. I had very bad eyes and I think my mother always felt guilty of that. I was not a believer and probably had a demon or two living inside of me because the urge to bolt from that place was supernaturally unusual. But the honor of my mother's wishes won out and I stayed. The healing part of the service was at the end (of course, right) so I had to sit there for over an hour waiting and keeping myself from running madly down the center aisle toward the back door. When the healing part of the service started I thought I'd be smart and sit at the inner side of the pew, figuring that I would get attention first and could get the heck out of there. Yahweh has a heck of a sense of humor because the minister started at the other end. Before he got to me, my heart was beating unusually fast; like a soldier's heart must beat in the heat of battle when he doesn't know if he's going to be alive a minute from that thought. Anyway, the pastor came to me and put his hands on my head and an incredible peace came over me. My heart went from tachycardia to a normal beat as the waves of love flowed through me. I left the church calmly and with a desire to want to know Yahweh better and perhaps personally. Later that year I would do just that.

The only other times that I can experience that feeling of complete peace is when I spend a long time in the Spirit while praying. It's a feeling and a situation that I crave and like a opiate, it makes me want more and more. I've actually had times in this sort of prayer situation where I told Yahweh that if He wanted to take me home right then I would absolutely love it. I love it when time stops and Yahweh reigns.

CONCLUSION:

Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh is indeed a great name for Yahweh. By His own proclamation He has proved Himself to be THE GOD OF TIME. He is I AM, I WAS and I WILL BE, which denotes His eternal supremacy over all that is, was and will be. No event, occurrence or happening, no matter how grand or trivial ever happened without His expressed knowledge. He has pre-written history before it happened as well as the future and He's done that to prove His exalted status over time and space. And by His being all knowing and all powerful He really didn't have to care. He could have let creation burn itself out or let it decay into oblivion, but He chose to care and to lead things to a future glorious ending.

The thing to consider, especially if you don't know Him, is what will you do with this information. You know the truth now and that brings about a responsibility to do something with the truth. Here's an analogy. You are in a burning building and now I have told you about your dilemma. You have a way out of that burning building and that is by having a personal relationship with Yahweh. He's your fire escape, your insurance company and your best friend. Sure, you could choose to stay in the burning building and you can die in the inferno, but that is without a doubt a very unwise thing to do. I urge you with the strongest possible terms that you choose life. Should you want life, click here to find out more. Be blessed in Yeshua Ha Mashiach.
