3. The name of GOD YHVH Exodus 3:15 “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM”: and he said, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”
9 Now, therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.
10 Come now, therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?
12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.
13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Micah 5:2 states that Israel’s Messiah would come from Bethlehem, and He is described as He “whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” This states not only His preexistence but the fact that He has existed from eternity.
The term “from everlasting” is, according to A.R. Fausset, “the strongest assertion of infinite duration of which the Hebrew language is capable.”1 The term is also used in Psalm 90:2.
Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
In Isaiah 9:6, Israel’s Messiah is described as the “everlasting Father” or, as it is better rendered, “Father of eternity”. This also points to His existence from eternity past.
