The Secular Record of History, Proves That Jesus Rose From The Dead

COPYRIGHT WARNING

If you are a Christian, you were born extremely rich. The day that you first trusted in Jesus as your Savior, you began a new life as the son or daughter of the Greatest King who has ever lived. Possessing great riches is not enough to live a truly satisfying and purposeful life. We must also gain knowledge and wisdom; to know how to live. In order to fully understand the riches that are ours, we must read the bankbook and discover what God has deposited into our account because of what Jesus has accomplished for us.[1]

Many years ago, one of the world’s richest men, discovered a list of priceless items that he wanted for his collection. He dispatched his trusted employee to travel the world until he found these items and bring them back to his home. After a long and exhausting search, the items were discovered—all in the same location. The employee returned to his boss and reported: “Everyone of these treasures that you were seeking, are already yours. They have been in your warehouse for quite some time.”

In Christ, everything that we are searching for in our life, is already ours…

One of the many treasures that we possess, is the certain knowledge of God’s power and ability to order and bless our lives. There is no greater place to learn about the Lord’s capacity to direct our lives, than seeing this capability demonstrated by the fulfillment of His prophetic word. Many people misunderstand the purpose of these prophecies of the Bible as an attempt to predict the future. This was not the intended purpose of God’s prophetic word. The Lord was desiring that every person might know Him and be able to trust in what He has promised us. How better to prove this ability than to speak about things that are yet to come; and fulfill His word, with extreme precision.

Why The Rapture Is Called: “No Man Knows The Day or the Hour”

COPYRIGHT WARNING

no man knows

Many people are not aware of the meaning behind the phrase that Jesus spoke, concerning the time of His return to earth, during the Rapture.

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. Matthew 24:36

Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. Matthew 25:13

We must remember that Jesus is a Jew, and when He spoke He was speaking to primarily Jews. When Jesus spoke, He communicated in Hebrew and expressed His thoughts in a way that would be understood by the Jews who listened to Him.

A Discussion With a Dear Jewish Friend, Regarding Messiah

COPYRIGHT WARNING

In the past week, I have had the great privilege of discussing the coming of Jesus as the Messiah, with many, many people. The advent of a fourth blood moon during the month of September, 2015, has opened up a wonderful world of exchange between those who do not believe and those who do.

One of the best questions that I received, was from a Jew who does not believe that Jesus is the Messiah. His difficulty is with the text of Jeremiah 23:5-6, where the Messiah is described as a “King, who prospered.” Since Jesus did not reign as a King, and He did not prosper (was crucified), in the mind of this person, Jesus could not be the Messiah.

The following is my discussion with “Israel.”

Irrefutable Evidence For The Existence Of God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Is there verifiable evidence for the existence of God? Yes. In fact, the evidence is so substantial, so empirical, so undeniable, we can know for certain that God does exist.

When we consider any event from history as a valid occurrence, we must examine the evidence that those who were present during that time, said or wrote, concerning these events. We know that Abraham Lincoln is a genuine person from history, by the 20,000 documents that exist which authenticate his existence.

We know that World Wars one and two took place, because history has recorded these events.

The existence of God has such a large body of empirical evidence that no reasonable person could deny His existence. Continue reading “Irrefutable Evidence For The Existence Of God”

Zechariah And Jesus Predict The Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

COPYRIGHT WARNING

One of the most stunning proofs for the Bible as the word of God, is its incredible ability to predict world events, hundreds of years before they took place. Critics of the Bible, as well as the atheist who claims that there is no proof for the existence of God, often repudiate Bible prophecy and claim that the Bible does not predict any future event.

When we examine the prophecy of Zechariah, written nearly 700 years before Jesus entered Jerusalem, we find that the siege of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., was predicted—not only by this Old Testament prophet, but also by Jesus when He declared to the nation that He was their promised Messiah.

What Did Jesus Do That He Deserved To Die?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Crucifixion is described as one of the most horrific ways to put a man to death. Reserved for only the worst of criminals, what had Jesus done that warranted such vicious treatment?

As we read the accounts of His life in the four gospels, we see a man who is full of love and compassion. Every sick person who came to Jesus—He healed. Every hurting man or woman, Jesus loved and encouraged. Every lost sinner who came to Him in sorrow for their sins, Jesus forgave and bestowed a new life.

Jesus stood against injustice, religious hypocrisy, and pretentiousness by those who claim to know God. When the woman at the well sought to turn the discussion to religion, Jesus turned her back to a relationship with God.

Everything that Jesus did, was good, righteous, and Holy.

The testimony of those who had been with Him every day of His three and one-half year ministry, described Him as perfect and without sin (Prophecy 21). None of the people from Nazareth came to Jerusalem when Jesus proclaimed Himself as the Messiah and opposed Him on grounds that He was a sinful man. Every person who listened to Jesus and watched the way that He treated people was struck by His grace.

This was no ordinary man, this was no sinner, this was not a man who deserved to die by crucifixion.

The First Prophecy of the Bible

COPYRIGHT WARNING

See all 365 Messianic Prophecies of the Bible

The Prophecies of the Messiah: Prophecy 1

Immediately after the fall of man, God promises a Savior—who will make the redemption of all people possible.

Old Testament Prediction:

Genesis 3:15a “And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

New Testament Fulfillment:

Luke 1:35 “And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.”

Matthew 1:18-20 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

1 John 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15. and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Application:

The creation of man is a great mystery. How we came to the earth and the reason for our existence, are two of the most extraordinary questions of mankind. Many scientists today will tell us that we are a cosmic accident. In the beginning there was nothing and then suddenly a tiny, densely compacted mass of energy exploded into a universe. Stars formed, Galaxies clustered, planets took shape and man evolved from a single cell—over billions of years. This all happened as a result of millions of fortuitous accidents.

The Bible is unique in that it offers mankind an intellectual answer that makes sense. In the beginning, an intelligent Being of unlimited power, created the heavens and the earth. Through infinite wisdom, God assembled all the necessary components of the universe, adjusted them to allow for life, and brought forth all living things upon the earth.
