GETTING TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST 2

SEEING JESUS

Seeing Jesus is what Christianity is all about. In its purist form, it is nothing more than imitating Him whom we see.

KNOW JESUS CHRISTFaith is a gift of God. Faith is the supernatural activity of God whereby He opens blind eyes, unstops deaf ears until you say, “I see it now!” The other side of the coin is that man must freely accept this gift of God. 

Faith is not something that must be intellectually understood as much as something that has to be experienced and lived. The secret of faith is that we must cultivate a deep and warmly personal relationship with Jesus, so that everything one does becomes an act of love for and faithfulness for Jesus.

God’s favor is surrounding you like a shield. Every bad break, every disappointment, and every person who does you wrong is part of the plan to get you to where you are suppose to be.  God doesn’t just send the storms: He uses them to cleanse us.

 It may be very difficult for us who are unloving to know God who is love. But when God touches us we are transformed and the sign of this transformation is a new ability to love.

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”                                                                                             Matthew 11:27

GET TO KNOW JESUS

The answer to the many problems involved in the life of faith is always the same: GET TO KNOW JESUS. Continue reading GETTING TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST 2

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL 2

 WHERE WILL YOU READ ABOUT A VISION OF HEAVEN, HELL AND PURGATORY?

heaven

Here are three accounts of visions of heaven, hell and purgatory. Try to be open to these stories.  Try not to be so skeptical this time. It is very revealing and it will be to your benefit.

Heaven is for Real

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Heaven is for Real Souls in Purgatory

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us, and how Colton was able to pray for his father on earth .

THE RIGHT TO LIFE 2

 THE RIGHT OF EVERY LIFE

For man, the right to life is the fundamental right. The defense of a right to every life means the right to be born and then continue to live until one’s natural end: “As long as I live, I have the right to life.”

god proof

This applies to the lives of children yet unborn and thus incapable of defending themselves.

It’s called “partial birth abortion”. Unborn babies, usually over 20 weeks gestation, are pulled alive from the womb with forceps until only the head remains in the cervix. After puncturing the base of the skull, the brain is suctioned out, the skull collapses, and the dead child is delivered. The procedure is legal in Canada for two reasons: one is that there are no laws restricting abortion here, thus, a nine month pregnancy can be terminated, even up to the due date; the second is because Canada’s Criminal Code states that, until a baby is born, it is not recognized as a “human”.1 Thus, even if a baby is fully grown and the head remains in the birth canal, it is still not considered “human” until it is fully delivered.

THERE WILL BE A PRICE TO PAY.

The fact that politicians and doctors in our country pretend that a baby is not human until all the body is delivered is one of the most absurd modern tenets in existence. 

We are utter fools if we think we can shed innocent blood and not reap what we have sown, especially when we so willfully turn a blind eye to reality. We are deceived to believe that God’s hand of protection will remain over a country that systematically turns its back on the unborn, traditional marriage, and soon, the sick and elderly.

“The victor will inherit these gifts, and I shall be his God, and he will be My son. But as for cowards, the unfaithful, the depraved, murderers, the unchaste, sorcerers, idol-worshipers, and deceivers of every sort, their lot is in the burning pool of fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”                                                                                                                    Revelation 21:7-8

THE WOMAN PAYS THE HIGHEST PRICE

WHAT IS THE USE OF BELIEVING?

 THE USE OF BELIEVING

Does faith offer something more? Isn’t it possible to live an honest upright life without bothering to take the Gospel seriously? The Church, in fact, has never denied that even a nonbeliever could perform good and noble actions. So what is the use of believing?

god proof

By believing and entrusting ourselves, in fact, we respond to God’s word. Nevertheless, God absolutely does not want to force us to respond to His word. Man cannot be forced to accept the truth.

SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH

We are bound by both our nature and by moral duty to search for the truth, above all religious truth. And once they come to know it they are bound to adhere to it and to arrange their entire lives according to the demands of such truth.

What is not permissible is not trying to reach the truth. The man who does very little to search for truth and good, or when through the habit of sin conscience itself becomes almost blind.

Those who through no fault of their own are not aware of the Gospel of Christ and of the Church, but who nonetheless search sincerely for God, and with the help of grace attempt to carry out His will, known through the dictates of their conscience-they too can attain eternal salvation.

With God, man “creates” the world; with God, man “creates” his personal salvation.

 JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

TRUST ME

PLACE YOUR TRUST IN ME.

SEARCH OF LOST CHRISTIAN UNITY 2

LOST UNITY?

SEARCH OF LOST CHRISTIAN UNITY

People need to know which Churches is that of Christ, since He founded only one Church, the only one capable of speaking in His name. Why would the Holy Spirit have permitted so many different divisions and enmities among those who claim to be disciples of the same Gospel, disciples of the same Christ?  The search: is unity lost?

god proof

Could it not be that these divisions have also been a path continually leading the Church to discover the untold wealth contained in Christ’s Gospel and in the redemption accomplished by Christ? Perhaps all this wealth would not have come to light otherwise.

It is impossible to imagine that this Church, instituted by Christ on the foundation of the apostles and of Peter, should not be one. But we can also understand how over the centuries contact with different political and cultural climates could have led believers to interpret Christ’s message with varying emphases.

Nevertheless, these different approaches to understanding and living out one’s faith in Christ can, in certain cases, be complementary; they do not have to be mutually exclusive. What separates us as believers in Christ is much less than what unites us.

Unfortunately, some Churches originating in the Reformation have a gap, which is considerably wider, since several fundamental elements established by Christ were not respected.

We can trust that “the One who began this good work in us will bring it to completion”                                                                     Philippines 1:6

WHY SO MANY RELIGIONS?

 TOO MANY RELIGIONS?

The Church is the Body of Christ: why has God allowed so many religions to exist?

god proof

We should be amazed at the number of common elements found within all these religions. There is a common fundamental element and the common root of these religions: the unity of humankind with regard to the eternal and ultimate destiny of man.

And they have one ultimate destiny, God, whose providence, goodness, and plan for salvation extend to all. . . . Men turn to various religions to solve mysteries of the human condition, which today, as in earlier times, burden people’s hearts: the nature of man; the meaning and purpose of life; good and evil; the origin and purpose of suffering; the way to true happiness; death; judgment and retribution after death; and finally, the ultimate ineffable mystery which is the origin and destiny of our existence.

Christianity rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. The Church believes and propounds, often reflect a ray of that truth which enlightens all men. The Church is guided by the faith that God the Creator wants to save all humankind in Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man.

WHY SO MUCH EVIL IN THE WORLD? 2

TOO MUCH EVIL IN THE WORLD?

So many incurably ill people in hospitals, so many handicapped children, so many human lives completely denied ordinary happiness on this earth.  There is  so much evil in the world. Why?

god proof

How to continue to trust in a God who is supposed to be a merciful Father, when suffering, injustice, sickness, and death seem to dominate the larger history of the world as well as our smaller daily lives?

God created man as rational and free, thereby placing Himself under man’s judgment. His wisdom and omnipotence are placed, by free choice, at the service of creation.

There is also the intervention of the evil spirit, who, with even greater shrewdness than man.

Why evil?

Evil exists because freedom exists. We are free to do what we want and some people choose to do evil for various reasons. It could all start with one person doing evil which affects other people and could lead to them also doing evil. If there is evil in the world then it is because of us humans.

A lot of simple things that God talked about like greed, jealousy, selfishness and whatever, could all lead to us doing evil deeds.

WHAT IS SALVATION?

ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

There is for the Christian a certain assuredness of salvation, which is the fruit of walking with Christ. Many Christians lack this assurance because they have not been fully converted to the Lord; they trust their insecure feelings rather than what God has said or because of deliberate sin and disobedience. The root cause for lack of assurance of salvation is lack of conversion. These people have never come to know and love the living God and have never made a commitment of their lives to Him. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”                                                                    Romans 10:9-10

WHAT IS SALVATION?

GOD SENT US A SAVIOR

If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent and educator, like Confucius. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent a scientist like Einstein. If our greatest need was money, God would have sent an economist like Keynes. But since our greatest need was forgiveness, God sent a savior, Jesus Christ. He became like us, so that we could become like Him. Continue reading WHAT IS SALVATION?

IS GOD HIDING? 2

 IS GOD HIDING?

Why doesn’t He give everyone more tangible and accessible proof of existence  of God? Why does His mysterious strategy seem to be that of playing hide-and-seek with His creatures? Why is God hiding?

god proof

Why isn’t there more concrete proof of God’s existence? Why does He seem to hide Himself, almost playing with His creation? Shouldn’t it all be much simpler? Shouldn’t His existence be obvious?

God’s self-revelation comes about in a special way by his “becoming man“: the revelation of the invisible God in the visible humanity of Christ.

Even the day before the Passion the apostles asked Christ: “Show us the Father” John 14:8. His response remains fundamental: “How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me?  — or else, believe because of the works themselves….The Father and I are oneJohn 14:9-11; 10:30.

PROOF OF HEAVEN 2

PROOF OF HEAVEN

PROOF OF HEAVEN
PROOF OF HEAVEN

The proof of heaven starts with thousands of people around the world who claim to have had near-death experiences (NDEs). Scientists believe that these experiences can be easily explained as mere fantasies triggered by an extremely stressed brain. That belief changed for Dr. Eban Alexander.

Dr. Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a comma because of a rare illness: a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. His brain, that relates to thought and motion, had completely shut down. His condition was so bad that doctors were ready to stop all treatment. But then he regained consciousness and opened his eyes—and was healed: it was a medical miracle! Dr. Scott Wade who attended to him at the hospital concluded that having a full recovery from this illness after being in a coma for nearly a week, is truly remarkable.

heaven

During this laps of time he learned that “the death of the body and the brain are not the end of consciousness and that human experience continues after the grave. More important, it continues under the gaze of a God, who loves and cares about each one of us and it is about… where all the beings are ultimately going.” He claimed that the this place was real. Real” in a way that makes the life we are living here and now completely dreamlike by comparison”.

He saw his experience as a duty or a calling to tell people what he saw beyond the body and beyond this earth. He wrote a best-selling book: The New York Times book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. No matter what your personal beliefs might be, these ideas will change your life. You are learning about a new world for you: a vast and incalculably positive journey.

You are learning that there is a God in heaven

He controls everything and has a plan for you. He will give you eternal life in heaven if you live a life of humility, piety, dignity and inner poverty. All you have to do is follow 10 Rules (Commandments). And you don’t have to change any dates of your religious holidays! Wouldn’t Thomas Edison be surprised; he once said the he had “never seen the slightest scientific proof of religious theories of heaven and hell.”

While his body lay in coma,  Dr. Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself. Dr. Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Today he believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.  Continue reading PROOF OF HEAVEN 2
