Who is the Father? Bookmark

WHO IS FATHER? 

In Exodus 3:13, Moses is inquiring of God as to 

how to answer the people of Israel about who sent Him to them, and what is His name.

Exodus 3-14-15--"God said to Moses, I AM who I AM.  And He said, say this to the people of Israel:  I AM has sent me to you.  God also said to Moses, Say this to the people of Israel: The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Issac, and the God of Jacob has sent me to you."

How often do we as believers in Jesus Christ refer to the Father God as "I AM?"  Jesus referred to Himself as the "I AM" as he was dialoging with the Jews in John Eight:

John 8:58--"Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."

There are many names for God used by Christians.  Daniel referred to God as the "Ancient of Days" in his vision in Daniel 7:9.

Jesus would refer to His Heavenly Father as Abba Father, a Hebrew name.   There are other Hebrew names used for God today:  Elohim, El-Shaddai, Yahweh, Jehovah and Adonai.

As you read through the book of Psalms you will identify many verses on God's protecting care of us:  

Psalm 18:1,2-- "I love you Lord, my Strength.  The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer, my God, my Rock in whom I take Refuge, my Shield, and the Horn of my salvation, my Stronghold."

Psalm 118:14-- "The Lord is my Strength and my Song; He has become my Salvation."

How comforting it is to think about God as our Father!  I was blessed to have a loving earthly father, while many of you may not have had the privilege of having such a father.   I hope you will begin to embrace the thought of God as your heavenly Father!   

THOUGHT TO PONDER:

I pray that you will embrace God as your heavenly Father.

EXTRA: The Name of Jesus is So Sweet I love the name of him whose heart knows all my griefs and bears a part.  Who bids all anxious fears depart.  I love the name of Jesus.  That name I fondly love to hear, It never fails my heart to cheer.  Its music dries the falling tear.  Exalt the name of Jesus.
