WHO AM I BIBLE STUDY
 

WHO AM I IS A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION. TO ANSWER THE WHO AM I QUESTION WE MUST FIRST FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OURSELVES.

FINDING YOURSELF

There comes a time in most of our lives when we feel the need to try and “find” ourselves. We ask ourselves that same ole question which has been handed down generation after generation. Who am I? What am I meant to be? What is my purpose in life?

For many, this search begins in the early adult years. Having already gone through infancy, childhood, teen trials and becoming an adult … You feel a need to explore your heart, identify what you like and don’t like, solidify your beliefs, and once you do, you imagine you’ll be able to get on with … life.

 During this process, it seems nobody understands this and during your search for who you are those around you may act as if you are going through some ridiculous unimportant phase. Friends and even family may ridicule you during this soul searching.

Sometimes this desire to search our souls doesn’t happen until well into adulthood, which people have dubbed as “going through a mid-life crisis” ... The results of this are usually devastating, causing things like infidelity, broken homes, career changes, relocation, the loss and/or respect of your loved ones, etc.

Finding yourself doesn’t have to be such a difficult time in your life. The TRUTH is that WHO you are has already been determined. This study can help you to find out who you are without a lot of psychological analyzing and be a positive experience at the same time.

THIS WHO AM I BIBLE STUDY ANSWERS THE QUESTION OF WHO AM I FROM THE BIBLE'S PERSPECTIVE. WE ALL ASK WHO AM I AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. WHO AM I MAY BE THE MOST HEARD WORDS IN THE ECHOES OF HISTORY AS THE SEARCH FOR THE ANSWER TO THE WHO AM I QUESTION, HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. THE WHO AM I BIBLE ANSWER TO WHO AM I BIBLE QUESTION WILL ENHANCE YOUR CHRISTIAN WALK.

 

CREATION CONFUSION

Before we start digging to find out WHO you are, we must find out where you came from. But first let’s look at where you did not come from. Mankind has come up with some outrageous ideas about our beginnings.

With this in mind, I'd like to quote to you, what our children are learning about how the universe began.  This excerpt is taken from A Child's First Library of Learning - Science Starter - by Time-Life Books.  Sound like a reliable resource?  Brace yourself.

How and When Did the Universe Start?

Most scientists believe that the universe began about 20 billion years ago.  At first it was very, very small, and it was made of completely different materials than it is today.  Soon after it began, it started to spread out very rapidly.  This growth is now called the Big Bang, because it was so fast it was like an explosion. Before the Big Bang, the universe was a much smaller ball.  Then it exploded, and there was an incredibly hot mass of light.  Scientists believe that it was billions and billions of degrees Fahrenheit.  There is nothing in the universe today that is nearly as hot as that. A million years after the Big Bang, the universe continued to spread out and to slowly cool.  At first the universe seemed like a hazy mass.  As time passed, parts of it became clearer. Several million years later the early universe had no clear shape or structure.  Scientists describe this as being in a state of chaos.  As the universe kept spreading out, a cloudlike mass of gasses became what is called a supergalactic group.  Although the universe was taking shape, it was a long way from being like anything we know. 20 billion years later the supergalactic group then began to break up.  It formed smaller groups called galaxies.  Today these hold the millions of stars that form our universe.

Here's the funny part:

It is not known how the ball of fire came into existence or why the Big Bang took place.  

“The Big Bang Theory” is the theory that once upon a time a "ball of fire" or something exploded, (AS if the "scientists" that support this THEORY were there to know this) creating all the planets and galaxies of the universe.

This Big Bang theory brings a curious question to mind:

WHO created the "fire ball" that exploded?

Now, we also have a theory called Evolution, which suggests that human beings who are capable of thought and emotions, evolved from what I believe in the most popular theory, they claim that a self reproducing organism in the ocean. Which then became a process of evolution which changed from a bug to a bunch of other things to a monkey to ... Humans.

WOW ... I'll be a monkey's uncle.

NO WAIT !!!

The monkey is supposedly our uncle.

So, I suppose this Evolution theory makes us ...

SEA MONKEYS

We build skyscrapers, split atoms and, well, people are capable of doing incredible things, not to mention the human being itself is an extremely complicated, miraculous thing.  And who does science give the credit to?

A ball of fire?

Doesn't it make you wonder how science can believe that a ball of fire can create the universe, but God can't? Science claims that this is true even without proof, and yet they criticize the FAITH of Christians for believing that God created the universe, and that we believe what was written in the Bible about the creation of the Heavens and the earth and mankind ...

Instead of believing their MONKEY BUSINESS.

WHO AM I BIBLE QUESTIONS AND WHO AM I BIBLE ANSWERS

Here’s a real curious question about this theory: Why are monkeys still here with us today?  It would make more scientific "sense" if they were all evolved by now. Were some of them immune to the process of evolution?

Doesn't it seem logical that the evolution would have been complete? After all, you don't see ape men walking around, but monkeys, who were supposedly a stage before that, are still hanging around (no pun intended).

Again ... Science will give credit to anything for the existence of things ... except God. The only One who is truly capable of creating all the miraculous things that they continually try and prove came from something else.

Science seems to seek answers to the unexplained as if they will then be the creator if they can give a reason that we will swallow. Science opposes Faith because it seeks for proof. Where proof of something exists, Faith is lacking and deemed unnecessary, as our whole existence as Christians is based on FAITH.

Science can try and explain away everything that surrounds us ... However, there are so many wonders that cannot be explained unless you have Faith in God. Mankind can imitate many things, they can even clone people and animals nowadays, but nobody can create a soul and a spirit, except God.

Look at what the Apostle Paul told Timothy about science:

1 Timothy 6:20-21
Remember what you’ve learned about faith, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science which are not truth: some who have proclaimed these, have made mistakes concerning the Faith.

Always keep this in mind:

1 Corinthians 3:18-20 
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh (captures) the wise in their own craftiness (Job 5:13). And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain (Psalms 94:11).

You can search through every book that was ever written, read every encyclopedia, learn every scientific theory that was ever imagined, and you won’t find a single one that can adequately explain your creation, your existence, your purpose, WHO YOU ARE … Better than the Bible. But without Faith in your Creator and all His works, the reason for your existence will always escape you and leave you searching for answers.

 

GLORY BE

WHO AM I BIBLE TRUTH WITH WHO AM I BIBLE BLESSING GIVING WHO AM I BIBLE HOPE

Mankind is always seeking for a better reason than GOD for their existence. But the TRUTH is that the reason you’re here, alive on this earth, is to glorify your Creator. You were created by God. You are the image of God.

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness ...

What's this OUR image and OUR likeness all about? Let's take a look at who God is and that way it will be easier to identify who you are …

Sounds kinda weird huh? Well let us not allow our limited understanding to cause doubt as to deny TRUTH.

1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE.

 This is called the HOLY TRINITY. He is one God, in three divine parts. When God said, Let us make man in OUR image, He was talking to Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

NOW ... LET'S LOOK INTO HOW WE ARE MADE IN GOD'S IMAGE. What does God mean? How are we made in His image? Let’s look at the rest of what was shared in 1 John …

1 John 5:7-8
For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost: and these THREE ARE ONE. And there are three that bear witness IN EARTH,
the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these THREE AGREE IN ONE.

Therefore we, as humans, are made of three parts or depths.
SPIRIT, WATER AND BLOOD … The
WATER represents the BODY
. The human body is made up of mostly water. The BLOOD represents the SOUL … DNA in blood is used to identify a specific person.

Leviticus 17:11
For the LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE BLOOD: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

BUT ... WHAT OF THE SPIRIT … In the book of Genesis, God says ... LET THERE BE ... AND THERE WAS. But if we look closer at the scripture itself we find an awesome TRUTH.

Genesis 1:1-3
"In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the SPIRIT OF GOD (Holy Spirit) moved upon the face of the waters. And God said,
Let there be light: and there was light.

We see that God made a command and HIS SPIRIT obeyed and caused the physical change surrounding Him. IN LIKE MANNER ... Our assigned SPIRIT obeys our SOUL. I bet your eyebrow is lifted right about now. I will give you an example ...

You are watching television, happy as a lark and THEN you see something that saddens ya. Your soul sees or hears the sad thing and tells your spirit that you are sad and your spirit reacts and the physical body changes. Physical tears fall from your eyes and out come the Kleenex. Your soul chose to believe or think something was sad and said "Let there be" sadness so your spirit obeyed and changed emotions and your body reacted to the spirit.

Your spirit is the part of you that listens and obeys the things that it accepts as what YOU tell it to feel. God said “Let there be …” and the Holy Spirit carried out the command. Your soul tells your spirit to act and react to things, and your spirit carries out the commands that your mind gives to it. Many people think that the spirit and the soul are the same thing, but the Bible is clear that they are TWO separate parts ... Your soul controls your spirit.

It is a process that occurs cuz of what God said ... We are made in THEIR image. OUR SPIRIT AND BODY ARE SUBJECT UNTO OUR SOULS. This is an important TRUTH to be aware of cuz it's happening with or without your being conscious of it.

WHAT OUR SOUL CHOOSES TO THINK AND/OR BELIEVE IS WHAT OUR SPIRIT WILL PERFORM AND THE BODY WILL FOLLOW.

It doesn't matter if it is good, bad, happy or sad. The SPIRIT only hears the words ... Let there be.

 Sooooooo, YOU are created in GOD’S image and there are three parts of you. When we die ... What happens to these three parts of us?
 

Our BODY returns to dust:

Genesis 3:19
for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Our SPIRIT returns to God:

Ecclesiastes 12:7
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the SPIRIT shall return unto God WHO GAVE IT.

When the righteous dies, their SOUL goes to ABRAHAM’S BOSOM:

Luke 16:22
And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the angels into Abraham's Bosom.

The body goes back to the dust and the spirit goes back to God who gave it to us. So it is obvious that it is the SOUL that is the part of you that is judged for your choice to believe in Jesus or not. Your soul is your being. It is your existence. It is what makes up your heart, your beliefs, your feelings, your convictions, your virtues. It is the entity within you that makes choices. When you think of who God is, you don’t think of Him in bodily form, you think of His love, His GRACE, His righteousness, His virtue, His strength. When you think of who you are, you’re all the things that make up your character ... Your qualities, disposition, moral fiber, personality, temperament, eccentricity, integrity … These things are WHO you are …   

The sun exploded and created this intricate miracle that is you??? I think NOT. Now that you know where you came from, it’s easier to find out what you’re meant to be. Why did God create you? The answer is TO GLORIFY HIM.

Isaiah 43:7
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

 

1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your BODY, and in your SPIRIT,  which are GOD'S.

Did ya notice that WE (our soul) is directed by God to GLORIFY God with our BODY and our SPIRIT which BELONG TO GOD? Cool huh? Let's return to the original question now that we have discovered WHAT we are ... WHO ARE WE?

The thing that makes us question who we’re meant to be, is that we don’t feel like we’ve accomplished what we’re meant to. We feel like we can improve what we are. The person we’re meant to be doesn’t change, it’s our satisfaction within of whether or not we’re achieving our destiny that changes. But many times, we take the wrong path, and we search for who we think we should be, instead of what God INTENDED us to be. What happens when you take a wrong path? You get lost.  

You may want to ask yourself, Will any changes that you make in your life change who you are? You can change your habits, you can change your feelings about certain things, you can change your appearance, you can change your career, you can change your whole lifestyle which may change what you appear to be on the SURFACE ... But you can’t change WHO you are meant to be.

 WHO AM I BIBLE WARNING OF WHO AM I BIBLE DANGERS AND WHO AM I BIBLE CONCERNS

FAME AND FORTUNE

 There are other things that try and influence people to try and change who they are or “find” a different self than the one they’ve been created to be. These worldly deceptions are called SELF and PRIDE. People long to be famous, to be recognized, to be noticed. We admire movie stars, singers, professional athletes, public officials … Anybody who has made a name for themselves.

Ask yourself though, as a Christian, How many famous people have chosen their profession to give glory to God through their work? I don’t mean how many give thanks to God every Sunday for their good fortune, I mean how many of those people have you ever looked at and said to yourself “Now, that’s a man of God,” or “That there, is a godly woman”? How many times have you thought, “Wow, I wish I could serve the Lord like that!” Are their accomplishments service to God? What are their fruits?

Do you hear them at the Academy Awards thank God for their achievements? No, most thank any and everybody BUT God for their part in films that contain taking the Lord’s name in vain, depicting violence, glorifying wealth, sex, and many other forms of evil. It would be insulting for anyone to thank God for achievements that are unGodly.

Do you hear many athletes in their post-game interviews thank God for their victory? Not too many. Most speak of SELF and then the next week we hear that they’ve been arrested for DWI, spousal abuse, murder, or fired for taking steroids, etc.

Do you hear most of the music stars praise the Lord at the end of their performance and give God the credit for their talent? No ... They take the bows for themselves. We read in Rolling Stone Magazine how they’re involved in child pornography, homosexuality, drug abuse, etc. Now I speak not of Christian Music as they serve the CAUSE and obviously do give praise to our Father.

Wanna hear TRUTH? The absolute worst thing about trying to be a famous worldly star is that it is short lived and soon they are forgotten as the new kid on the block arises or AGE creeps upon them and the career they selected has age limitations. They are deemed as has beens. They traded up their entire existence for a few years in the limelight. Seek not to be a worldly star but rather an eternal star and let your light shine for JESUS.

The stars that people glorify here on earth … those rock stars, star athletes, movie stars, etc. who do not glorify God are likened unto fallen stars. Their glory comes from man. It is temporal. It will end when their life on earth ends … or before. As a Christian, you are eternal. Unlike the temporal stars, you will trade your earthly body for a heavenly body and become an eternal star. But just like the fallen stars, if you seek for something better than glorifying God, you will fall. Wouldn’t you rather seek eternal glory with God?

Unfortunately, most people abuse their God given gifts, and the sad thing is that these people influence our world … our children. Do you want God to remember you for worldly fame or for the glory that you brought to Him through the gifts that He gave you? Do you want people to raise up their hands and clap for you or raise their hands up and praise your Father?

God does give gifts (1 Corinthians, Chapter 12). Special talents that are meant to glorify Him. We tend to make discovering our gifts a difficult search, but God wove them into WHO you are, your passions, your talents, the things you love to do. You can be skilled in something, but if you don’t enjoy doing it, chances are, it isn’t your calling, because your Father doesn’t want you to be unhappy serving Him. He knows that if you enjoy performing the talents that He gave you, you will glorify Him better.  

 Now many of you might be saying,  Yeah right, I follow good, but I am nothing and I have no talents to speak of. It is important for you to know that this makes you a prime candidate for God service. 

1 Corinthians 1:26-31
 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Why is it then, that so many people strive to be wise and mighty, when it’s just the opposite of that which God has chosen? Because the world has deceived mankind by making people believe that they should seek glory for themselves instead of seeking to glorify God.

When you’re sizing up your life, seeking what you’re meant to be, you may come to the conclusion that it’s time to be your own person because up until now, you’ve always been somebody else’s … something. You were somebody’s child, then somebody’s student, then somebody’s employee, then somebody’s spouse, then somebody’s parent … always serving somebody else. Now look at this from a different point of view. At the Last Supper, Jesus washed the feet of His Apostles and said:

John 13:12-15
Do you know what I’ve done to you? You call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

Serving God’s people is an honor … For you and to your Father, so if you change your outlook on things, being somebody else’s something is the whole idea because it brings glory to God.

But STILL, all of this doesn’t seem quite satisfying, does it? You still wonder … Is this as good as it gets? Certainly I was born for more than this! But after reading up to here, you may feel guilty for wanting more and hesitant to ask for it. Is it selfish to desire more success in your life? Maybe it’s not fame you’re looking for, but a little more money wouldn’t hurt. Just enough so you wouldn’t have to worry about putting food on the table, maybe a little college fund for the kids, perhaps a little nest egg … you know, in case Social Security ever goes broke … these kind of things.

It’s not wrong to pray for more success. In fact, if the result of your success glorifies God … by all means … ASK!!! Keep this in mind also; becoming what you’re meant to be doesn’t necessarily mean starting over. Remember, you can’t change who you’re meant to be, but you can take what you already are and make an impact for God. When you change your attitude about WHY you want certain things in your life and your desire to attain them is for God, not for yourself or the praise of others … my friend, things will start to get exciting! With this attitude, you move from living in your own will to living the will of God.

1 John 5:14-15
And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us: And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.

 Consider Solomon. After he became king of Israel, God appeared to Solomon in a dream and said, Ask what you want, and I shall give it to you. Now, Solomon could have asked for fame and fortune, which is what most people would ask for, but instead, Solomon said:

1 Kings 3:9
Give your servant an understanding heart to judge your people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

God was so pleased at Solomon’s unselfish request for something that would honor the Lord, that He not only made Solomon the wisest man to ever live, but gave him fame and fortune as well! When you begin to ask, instead of, Who am I, and, What am I meant to be … Who does God want me to be, and, What am I meant to do for His glory, that’s when you stir things up and you will discover the person that you’re seeking for, the person that God meant you to be.

 

I AM A CHILD OF GOD

Once you realize who you are, and what you’re meant to be, there will be times that you will FALL DOWN. That doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to hell. The trick is to repent, ask forgiveness and continue on in GOD’S GRACE. Most of the heroes of the Bible fell, but their legends live on and they are eternal stars.

I have never met you, and yet, if you’re a Christian, I can tell you who you are and what you’re meant to be. You are a child of God. You’re made in His image, so you’re meant to be a reflection of Him, and to glorify Him.

If you’re having trouble finding yourself, it may be that you’re not really looking for you, but somebody you’re not. God loves YOU … the child He created. Seek for God in you. He’s easy to find.  

Sometimes a song touches the heart deeper than mere words, so I’d like to share the words to a song with you performed by Casting Crowns ...

If you would like to hear the song and/or sing along with it, you can find the song on your:

 

WHO AM I?

Who am I that the Lord of all the earth would care to know my name … Would care to feel my hurt … Who am I that the bright and morning star would choose to light the way For my ever wandering heart … 

Not because of who I am, But because of what you’ve done. Not because of what I’ve done. But because of who you are. I am a flower quickly fading. Here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean. A vapor in the wind. Still you hear me when I’m calling. Lord you catch me when I’m falling. And you’ve told me who I am … I am yours, I am yours.

Who am I … That the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again. Who am I … That the voice that calmed the sea, would call out through the rain and calm a storm in me. Not because of who I am … But because of what you’ve done. Not because of what I’ve done. But because of who you are.

I am a flower quickly fading. Here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean. A vapor in the wind, Still you hear me when I’m calling. Lord you catch me when I’m falling. And you’ve told me who I am … I am yours, I am yours … Whom shall I fear?

 

My friends, I will tell you WHO you are.
You are the image of God and you should reflect HIM …
For His Glory.
