"Thomas *said to Him, 'Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?'' Jesus *said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." (John 14:5-6)
There were many times that Jesus declared prophetic words over His children and the Kingdom of God. This powerful word was spoken by Jesus in the present tense: "I AM". When Jesus died on the cross, He spiritually, permanently and legally won the right to become present-tense. So right now, Jesus is the present-day, active truth, life and way in all things. This changes the context of every verse to an action verse! So as an example, in the context of this verse in Psalm 23, "I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever," becomes (by His proxy) [I AM] dwelling in the house of the Lord forever. The power of Jesus' New Covenant changed it all! When we read our Bible, we read it in context, knowing to look for the truth, the life and the way in the I AM. It will always be there and it will always be life-changing!
