Most Christians are familiar with the “I AM’s” of the Messiah. Let’s take a look at them quickly.
1. The Bread Of Life John 6:35
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
2. The Light Of The World John 8:12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
3. The Gate John 10:9
“I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.”
4. The Good Shepherd John 10:11
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
5. The Resurrection And The Life John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
6. The Way, The Truth, And The Life John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
7. The Vine John 15:5
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Did you know that there is an 8th “I am” statement attributed to the Messiah? It is found in Psalms 22:6 and it precedes the seven I am’s recorded in the Gospel of John. Could it be that this “I am” is foundational to all the others? The first question we need to ask is this. When does this WORM first show up in Scripture? What kind of WORM is it? Why is Yeshua Ha-Maschiac prophetically making reference to this WORM as He rehearses the events that were to take place on the Cross? What is the connection between all of these clues?
Let’s begin by identifying the WORM in view. It is not just any Worm, it is a MIRACLE WORM, the Tola Worm. The first mention of the TOLA WORM is not made in Psalms 22. The first mention is made in Exodus 16:20.
In the next article, we will investigate this first reference to the Tola Worm to see if we can discover anything prophetically significant.
