Where did come come from? It’s a question probably every person has asked. Here’s the answer. In Exodus 6:3, God said to Moses, “I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name, LORD, (JEHOVAH) I did not make Myself known to them.” JEHOVAH means self-existent One or “the existing One.” As God explained to Moses, He is “I AM WHO I AM.” Bible scholar Charles Ryrie, explains, “It is a name of relationship between the true God and His people and when used, emphasizes God’s holiness, hatred of sin, and love of sinners.”* God didn’t “come from.” He IS. As amazing and hard to believe is that the self-existing LORD, who is holy and hates sin, loves us. We’ll understand more when we get to heaven. Until then, praise Him!
Lord God, JEHOVAH, we praise You and thank You that You love us and have provided salvation for us!
