ONLY TWO CHOICES:
JESUS: LUNATIC OR GOD
Yes, Jesus is and was the purest and noblest character known in history. Please don’t come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being only a great moral teacher. He did not leave any other option: either His claim to be God is true or false. If He was a liar or a lunatic then he was also a hypocrite because he told others to be honest, whatever the cost.
There are only two choices: you can erroneously shut Him up as a fool and a liar or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. The discrepancy between the depth and sanity of His moral teaching and these rampant megalomania claims (unless He is indeed God) has never been satisfactorily explained.
A simple record of three short years of His active life has done more to regenerate and soften mankind than all the philosophers and all the moralists.
He always returned the wisest answers to tempting questions and He deliberately predicted His death on the cross and His resurrection on the third day – even the destruction of Jerusalem (70 AD)
The Old Testament contains 108 distinct prophecies that foretell the coming of one called “Messiah”, the Anointed One, and provides details about how and when He would arrive—even His birth in Bethlehem. The odds of just eight of these prophecies being accidentally fulfilled would be phenomenal. The New Testament proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah.
Does anyone else appear in history like Jesus? Only Jesus fulfilled the characteristics of the Messiah as described in the Old Testament. If Jesus is not the Messiah then no one will ever be and the bible is wrong. Yet, the New Testament documents are historically correct: they were written too early for legend to have polluted the accounts.
This is probably the most amazing miracle of the entire Bible — the eternal Son of God, himself fully God, became fully man and in doing so joined himself to a human nature forever. Jesus, a man unlike anyone else the world will ever see again, by eternally bringing together both the infinite and the finite, changed the course of history forever.
Jesus is the only one who says, “I am God. I am holy. I am the only way to a truthful life.” No one, not Mohammad, not Buddha say this. Not anyone other than Jesus says that they faced the devil face to face and won.
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
God is writing your love story: let Him read it to you. Believe what God says about you: Beautiful, Loved, Redeemed, Forgiven, Righteous, Victorious and Purposed.
You may have a taste for sin, bur everyone does. Say: I know I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I will trust and follow you as my Lord and my Savior. Guide my life and help me to do Your will. In Your name, Amen
It’s biblical: we just need to consider Jesus as our Savior and devout our life to God and we are saved. It doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with everything the Church says or everything in the Bible. One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you instantly forever.
“Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13 God speaks with tenderness; Do not fear, for I am with you: not only within call, but present with you. Are you weak? I will strengthen you. Are you in want of friends? I will help you in the time of need.
God without man is still God, but man without God is nothing. God created you with a longing in your heart that only He can fill. “Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love” Psalm 90:14
God hears your tears, even if you have been hurt so bad that you have thought of ending your life; even if you fell like there’s nowhere else to turn; that nobody wants me anymore; that you say that you are worthless and pathetic. You may have even have moments of rage. You may experience depression and all you can think about is your own pain. You don’t have to worry about love. You are not always going to feel that Jesus loves you or that God is good, but you know He is by walking in faith. It’s the up and down of the journey.
Know that as long as God exists, you will be loved by Him; you are priceless to Him. God will not allow difficulty unless he has a divine purpose for it. You can’t be who God called you to be and still keep the same habits and maybe the same friends. He may be slowly straightening you out. In the end, God will bring you out better than you were before.
IS JESUS THE SON OF GOD?
Why isn’t Jesus simply considered a wise man like Socrates? Or a prophet like Muhammad? Or enlightened like Buddha?
Christ is not simply a wise man as was Socrates. He is true man. In Him the divine is not confused with the human. There remains something essentially divine. This is not found in any other religion, much less in any philosophy.
Paul is profoundly aware that Christ is absolutely original and absolutely unique. Unlike Muhammad, He does more than just promulgate principles of religious discipline to which all God’s worshipers must conform. He is the one mediator between God and humanity.
Of course, there are those who say “I believe in Jesus Christ”, but they don’t affect the way they live. The answer is not that we now have to add hard work to our faith; rather, we haven’t truly understood or believed in Jesus at all.
Some people say that Jesus is just a crutch. They obviously have never had an encounter with Jesus.
Today’s people who live through near death experiences are talking about the same thing Jesus was talking about two thousand years ago.
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU
You need My grace and my strength.
“Let us sit here for a heart to heart talk together. So many of My brothers and sisters are in ravines or in ditches stuck in the mud.
I want you all to rise and with my strength to climb up the mountain and be with Me. Pursue your high Christian vocation and rise as the beloved of the Father. You were not made to be slaves of worldly and fleeting pleasures but to be men and women of spiritual values.
I call you to be my friends and to grow in a loving relationship with Me. Do not be distracted by the whims of the moment but work for the things of the spirit that last. You have a destiny of very great value and do not forget it.
You cannot attain it on your own but only with My help. You are weak and on your own you cannot advance. You need My grace and my strength and I am waiting for you to turn to Me so I can give it to you.
I am your greatest friend; come and I shall show you the way. I love you.”

HOW REVOLUTIONARY WAS JESUS? 2
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
