Prayer

 

This web site is devoted to the glorification of God through the words of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that you will be blessed and inspired as you read Jesus' words about life issues such as marriage, divorce, love, children, healing, wealth, faith, violence, war and much more. Additionally, we will look at Jesus' Life and His Ministry.  The words of Jesus  are of utmost significance to us because He is one with God; Jesus said in - John 10:30I and the Father are one”. Therefore, His words take preeminence above the sayings of priests, pastors, prophets, bishops, apostles and disciples. It is Jesus only who absolutely knows God and what His message is for Mankind. Furthermore, His words endure forever- He says Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Mark 13:31

Who is Jesus Christ?

People are often sincere when they say “I believe in God” or “I know there is a God”. Yet at the same time when asked about Jesus Christ, many either deny or subtly ignore the question. But, the bible as well as historical records clearly document the existence of Jesus Christ living on earth . Indisputable evidence of His life is chronicled in scriptural prophecies, testimonies of religious men, and biographical accounts of those who followed Him.  In a notable scriptural record found in Matthew 3:17, we have absolute validation that Jesus is the Son of God.  The author recounts that after Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, the voice of God authenticated Jesus' identity to the world. The verse reads  - "And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Peter too, a chosen apostle of Jesus Christ, under divine inspiration, one day declared …You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" - Matthew 16:16. Similarly, John, another disciple referred to Jesus as "The Word"  and proclaimed that Jesus was with God when the world was created. -"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning" John 1:1-2.  But John, further amplified his testimony when he described Jesus as God, who came to earth in the flesh - "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.  

Of course, even to believers, Jesus' incarnate nature  remains one of the divine mysteries. Still, regardless of the highly credible witnesses to Jesus' life on earth, it is Jesus' recorded words about Himself that provide utmost verification. As we read throughout the gospels, in sermons, parables and miracles Jesus repeatedly preached and demonstrated that He is indeed the Son of God. Matthew 11:27 summarizes it all  - "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

On earth, Jesus lived as a man, yet He maintained His divinity and did not sin. His life provides us with the blueprint for loving God, serving Him, and loving each other. It is Jesus only who can guarantee our path to God. No religion, creed, doctrine, priest, prophet or apostle can grant anyone access to God.  Jesus’ coming in the flesh created the eternal link for Mankind to be reconciled to God. He said - "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.- John 14:6. Through Jesus Christ, God's gift of salvation is offered to every human being. There is no special provision for any religion, race, or social status.  Neither does God exclude anyone. The only requirement for acceptance is to first believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and then make Him Lord of our lives. This is the reason that Jesus died for the sin of all Mankind; past, present and future. He affirmed this truth when He said " For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that who ever believes on Him will not perish but have everlasting life - John 3:16.  We certainly have the freedom of choice to accept or reject God's plan of redemption. But the consequence of not accepting Jesus as Savior is more than just a religious option, it is a decision to spend eternity without God, when this life is over.  

 Jesus did not come to bring us religion; He came to give us a relationship with God. Untold millions of us have experienced the spiritually transforming power of salvation since Jesus came to earth over 2000 years ago. By faith, our lives bear witness that He is the Son of God and savior of the world. We know too from Jesus words that He is the total embodiment of God's message to Mankind. He confirms this by saying -"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works."  John 14:10. Thus, Jesus' words not only validate His existence, they also guarantee every promise, command and law of God.  

A Prayer to Accept Jesus as Savior

Heavenly Father, I come to you in repentance for my sins. Please forgive me. I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son and He  died for my sins. I now receive Him as my Lord and  Savior. By faith I accept your forgiveness and your love for me. I receive your peace into my spirit and I am now a child of God. In Jesus name: Amen
