Greatest Day in History!World Celebrates 'Miracle' Discoveries
Cure for Every Disease Found!
No more Hunger and Starvation!How would the world respond to news like this? Should it even be considered since a day like this will never come? What if I told you this is "old news"? All of this happened 2000 years ago. Jesus did everyone of these things and more
Weather Control! No more storm deaths!
Proof of God Undeniable!
There is Life After Death!
! The world responded as we would expect...and as we might not have anticipated. There was great rejoicing and celebrations as He cured diseases, miraculously fed multitudes, calmed dangerous storms, and raised the dead. But...
The world killed Him. How could Someone like this, who only wanted to do good and reveal God, possibly be put to death?! This is a question that everyone needs to seriously consider.
Jesus was crucified, (apart from it being God's plan for him to die for our sins), because most people didn't love Him after they understood Him! Mankind was more than willing to sacrifice His benefits if it required following His teachings. They would rather try to solve their own problems and fail, than surrender control of their lives to the Lordship of Jesus.
Does that make sense to you? Me either? So why do we do it? The deceitfulness of sin. We are suckers for advertising. Satan has been peddling sin since he sold Eve a tree in the Garden of Eden. When we bite, it deceives us to everything God is, can do, and has said - things He has even warned us about. It's frightening when you consider that living in sin, not only blinds us to how far away from God we are, but also to the way back! And if we have a problem while in sin's darkness, which we inevitably will, we are blinded to the benefits of God. Without God's mercy shining light on us, we would never be able to get out.
If you are in sin now, come out before you lose everything. Consider this simple teaching as a light of God's mercy shining on you, showing you an escape.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(I John 1:7)
If you are not in sin and are thinking about taking a bite, simply reconsider the glorious benefits of knowing Jesus Christ, and ask yourself...
"Am I stupid?"
6 A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:
7 That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed
forevermore. (Psalm 92)
