SONG BY AJM/HS

"WHO I AM"

LORD, I STOOD ON THE SHORES OF THE GREAT SEA
PHARAOHS HORSES WERE BREATHING DOWN ON ME
AND THE PEOPLE YOU SENT ME TO TO SET THEM FREE
WHERE ABOUT TO TURN AND RUN FROM ME

I CRIED UNTO THEE IN MY MISERY
AS I STARED THROUGH THE WATERS IN MY EYES
TO THE WATERS VAST BEFORE ME
AND FINALLY IT BEGAN TO BUILD UP INSIDE OF ME...

(CHORUS:)
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU HOLD MY LIIFFFEEE INSIDE YOUR HANDS,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR LOVE THAT EXPANDS
TO FILL UP WHO I AM!

LORD, I KNEW THAT I HAD MADE A BIG MISTAKE
WHEN THE ONE I LOVED TURNED ON ME AND CALLED IN OUR ENEMY
AND I WAS LED AWAY TO MOCKING CAPTIVITY
MY HAIR SHEARED OFF LIKE A LEPER MIGHT BE
MY STRENGTH NEVER AGAIN TO RETURN TO ME

I CRIED UNTO THEE IN MY HOUSE OF MY MISERY
AS I STARED IN MY MIND AT THE PILLARS 
THAT STOOD SO MIGHTILY AGAINST ME
AND THEN IT FINALLY BEGAN TO COME TO ME...

(CHORUS:)
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU HOLD MY LIIFFFEEE INSIDE YOUR HANDS,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR LOVE THAT EXPANDS
TO FILL UP WHO I AM!

LORD, I GAVE THEM MY ALL FOR ALL THOSE YEARS
YET IN THE END THE ONE THAT I LOVED SO DEEPLY
TURNED HIS HEAL UPON ME TO SELL ME TO THOSE AGAINST ME 
EVEN THOUGH YOU HAD SENT ME TO THEM ALL TO SET THEM FREE
THEY LED ME AWAY IN HATRED AND CRUELTY
TO A BEATING
TO A BRUISING
TO A BEARD PLUCKING
TO A MOCKING
TO A HANGING
IN THE MOST HUMILIATING WAY.

I CRIED UNTO THEE IN THE HOUR OF MY MISERY
FROM THAT CROSS WHERE THEY STARED AT ME
AND YOU SEEMED TO BE SO FAR AWAY FROM ME . . .
AND THEN IT FINALLY I FELT IT GROW INSIDE OF ME,
AS I SAID THOSE WORDS THAT DARK DAY...
"INTO THY HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT"!

(CHORUS:)
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU HOLD MY LIIFFFEEE INSIDE YOUR HANDS,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM
THANK YOU LORD 
FOR YOUR LOVE THAT EXPANDS
TO FILL UP WHO I AM!
TO FILL UP WHO ... I AM!

CAN YOU HEAR IT? 
CAN YOU HEAR IT?
IN THIS THE HOUR OF YOUR NEED?
IN THIS THE HOUR OF YOUR UNCERTAINTY?
CAN YOU HEAR THE SPIRIT CRYING FROM WITHIN YOU...

(CHORUS:)
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU HOLD MY LIIFFFEEE INSIDE YOUR HANDS,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR LOVE THAT EXPANDS
TO FILL UP WHO I AM!

(FADE...)

CAN YOU HEAR...
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM,
YOU ARE MYYYYY I AM.

KJV Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. Have you ever sat at a dinner table and spied the last piece of desert in the center of the table and wanted it; then just as you are about to move someone else at the table move so fast that the cake is gone before you could even get your hand out there?
Have you ever headed for an open parking place that you spotted after circling for the fifth time to find one only to have another smaller car dash into the slot just before you arrive?
Have you ever see the footage on a street magician pick pocket who is able to take the watches and wallets of unsuspecting participants as he merely shakes hands with the pats them on the back and turns to the audience to show the object that is now in his possession?
THIS is the imagery that Jesus was trying to get to when ye spoke the words in the verse above. HARPAZO is the root word used for TAKE IT BY FORCE. It is a fast snatching, a quick retrieval when the victim and the audience is not watching. It is the lightening speed at which a predator overtakes the prey; a monsoon comes into shore and assaults a house; a lightning bolt can strike from the sky.
While the religionists of the day weren’t looking, ZIP the average person ran into the Holy of Holies and SNATCHED the most prize possession that religion thought is was covering up and protecting; THEY STOLE THE KINGDOM OF GOD right out from underneath the noses of the establishment, the self-righteous, and the spiritually stupid.
In the time of Jesus the spiritual “K”-MART opened its kingdom-sized doors and the people which had been waiting for so long for the K(ingdom) busted through the doors to carry away the spiritual stores in the MART. They knew a good thing when they saw it!
FREE HEALINGS – no doctors.
FREE SALVATION – no more rituals and hard sayings.
FREE DELIVERANCE – no more wrestling with demons all alone.
FREE WATER – The Holy Spirit available to all who ask!
With those kinds of things now being INSTANTLY AVAILABLE, who would dare to NOT SNATCH IT OFF THE TABLE -- BEFORE THE OTHERS COULD EVEN THING TO GRAB FOR IT.

And to those who only got the crumbs off the table at that time, even they were blessed because at least they had the good sense to come to the TABLE OF THE LORD, while the rest of the ‘house’ was asleep! Warning! Don’t fall asleep in the time of GREAT BLESSING. Take it for yourself!
