JESUS REVEALS THE I AM OF GOD
Jesus Christ is the Golden Table, prepared by God the Father to provide life and daily sustenance for His people.
The golden table speaks of the very high value and importance of this ministry of feeding and sustaining His people. This is the Table of tables. There is no other table that can compare with this table. The Candle of the Lord, the Golden Lampstand, shines on this table. It doesn’t shine where the Word of God is not present.
We note that the Golden Lampstand with its seven candlesticks was positioned directly opposite the Golden Table of Shewbread. This golden ministry of feeding on the Word of God could not be seen or shown forth (shewbread) if the light did not shine on it to reveal it.
God does not want His people to sit in the dark at His golden table. Never. Ever. God desires His Word to be illuminated at all times.
If it were not for this golden table, we would not have specific understanding and revelation of God being the GREAT I AM in the person of His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
The following are some of the Scriptures that show forth Jesus, the Son of God, revealed as the I AM of God (the shewbread).
