What’s In a Name?
God is just an arbitrary word that describes a field of energy. It is a way for us to identify the Creator. It’s as arbitrary as our names, since our names cannot contain the essence of who we are.
Look at it like this:
Nowhere in the bible is God ever self-addressed as God. Instead, God’s self-identification is, “I Am…say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you.” (Exodus 3:14). Then there is, “Be still and know that I AM God.” (Psalm 46:10). This is where I AM, recognizes Itself as the Creator in a way that we can understand it.
This is important because when the name, God, is spoken, people believe they must tremble in fear. But in truth, fear is the last thing that should be felt, since fear does not emanate from love, and the great I AM, is only Love. A double-sided God cannot function, for God cannot be divided. Even so, for us, it is written, “A double-minded man IS unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8)
Fear, in reality, does not even exist. Fear is not a “thing” and has absolutely no power, except the power it is given by us. Fear is only a word which describes an emotion that occurs from the absence of understanding; as in, people will often fear what is unknown to them.
Or, as Franklin D. Roosevelt expressed in 1932 during his first Inaugural Address, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.”
So, a name is certainly not something to fear, is it? And there is nothing scary, or trembling about the great I AM.
I AM, is Light Energy that is Aware of Itself, and creates by thought alone, since thought, or Light, is all God is. As it is written, “All things when they are admitted, are made manifest by the light: for everything that is made manifest, is light. (Ephesians 5:13)
Did you catch that last part? Everything that is made manifest, IS Light. Were you not also made manifest? Do you not exist, as the heavens and earth exists? That means, that since I AM is Light, and produces Everything from Its Light; then you, too, are made of Light. You were admitted by the Light of God, and then made manifest into flesh. You came from the great I AM, and since I AM is Light, then you cannot be separated from the great I AM, because Light cannot separate from itself.
You and the Great I AM, are One – You always have been. There is no way around this fact.
