There are lots of verses that indicated that Jesus is the One and the same God, and there are some too that indicated that He is the Son and not the Almighty One. This things are beyond our minds, but I prefer to believe that He is the only One. It make sense to me that the One who saved mankind is the same One who created us, because it will not make sense If the Almighty God we are talking about is not the one who sacrificed Himself for His creations. All His sacrifices will be futile.

What I believe Jesus was saying was, that yes Abraham was a great man but before he was aware of being Abraham. He was aware of Being - I AM. In other words I AM is pure unconditioned being. An individual expression of God and not separate in any way. Only in Spirit can one be individual and yet not separate. You I AM are aware of becoming conditioned as a physical form. Before you were aware of being who you are, you were aware of just -Being. I AM aware of being. Now when the I AM becomes defined in any way it is limited. So first you are I AM. Pure unconditioned being that is one with God- I AM that I AM. Notice here the name of God remains undefined or unlimited. There is no real definition here because to define the I AM is to limit it and God cannot be limited. The misunderstanding comes from the idea that Jesus was referring to himself personally. He was referring to the I AM or Christ within. The very essence of his being. This give us the power to proclaim the I AM for ourselves. This is not an ego thing. This is you identifying with the very essence of yourself to be whole and complete. The I AM can be seen as the Christ within. That is where we knock and it is opened.

Here, Jesus Christ clearly states His Divinity and Person.
That men may worship the Son as they worship the Father.
Oh I love Jesus because He first loved me!
