Why I Am who I Am

I AM WHO I AM

Is there anything else to prove who He is. Because He is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. He is the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last.

He is all Powerful, Mighty and Rules the Earth with Wisdom. He made the Heavens and the Earth and all that’s in it. All creations bow down at His feet. He is Worthy to be Praised. To Him be all the Honor, Power and Glory.

Each of these foreign gods had a particular name and was associated with a particular domain. Ra was the god of the sun, Baal was the god of war, and so on.

When Moses asked God for His name, the response was a surprising “I AM WHO I AM… This is my name forever”
