Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I AM!” John 8:58
Jesus never had an identity crisis. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Note Jesus didn’t say, “I am one way to God.” He didn’t say, “I am a life.” Jesus said, “I am the way, I am the life.” AndGod says, “He is my dear Son.”
In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am.” Not “I was,” but “I am.” He is the great I AM. He never had a beginning. He has always existed. He didn’t have His beginning at Bethlehem.
“For by Him [Jesus] were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him; And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. Colossians 1:16-17
The One who created the universe not only has this whole world in His hands, but He has the past, the present, and the future in His hands.
