THE "I AM'S" OF JESUS CHRIST AND
THE WISDOM OF CHRIST
To the woman at the well Jesus saith unto her: "I that speak unto thee is the I AM!!! Jesus was the Messiah. His coming into the world was the fulfillment of the many prophecies related to Jesus Christ from the Old Testament!
There are over forty of these prophecies that relate to Christ. There are over 200 subjects concerning His work and special ministries before He came and was crucified.
JESUS THE SON OF GOD!!! YES!l! HE SAYS 1AM
I am the Son of God. John 10:36
I am the Resurrection. John 11:25
I am The Lord and Master. John 13:14
I am The Way, Truth & Life. John 14:6
I am The True Vine. John 15:1
I am The Messiah, the Christ. John 4:25,26
I am Alpha and Omega. Revelation 1:8
I am the first and the last. Revelation 1:17
He could have also said: I AM
THE WISDOM OF GOD!!! Job 28:28 "And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom;..." Other references, Job 32:7 "I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom". See Psalms 121:16; Proverbs 1:20, Proverbs 4:7 "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all they getting get understanding. See Proverbs 9:1. Hosea 14:9 "Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein." Notice the first question: Who is wise? The wise have wisdom!! Matthew 7:24 Jesus said "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock." To be wise is to have wisdom!!! See 1 Corinthians 2: 6,7, & 12:8.
The Bible is the source of wisdom. 2 Timothy 3:15 says "And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
It is very, very, foolish not to seek wisdom!!! The WORD OF GOD, THE BIBLE is the source of that wisdom. See James 3:17.
"The little boy had been to day care and it must have a Christian Day Care. He came home and said to his mother, is that book on the shelf up there God's Book? She said, "Yes, honey, that is God's". It had been on the shelf long enough to be very dusty. His mother said to her little boy, "Yes, honey, it is God's book." He, the boy said, "Well, I think we had better send it back to Him because we never read it."
I'm afraid that is the way with most Christian homes.
Outright sinners are not interested in Bible reading. SAD!!!
