no son!” are the
Hebrew words you will read – over the doors of a Muslim Temple. I did know that
these people do not believe in my Jesus, and not sure why knowledge of these
words brought instant tears.
I want to take out a
billboard that says: JESUS IS GOD! – AND HE LOVES YOU! - I
suspect that this would make no difference to the lives of those who have been
raised with such fear and deception. And really, Jesus doesn’t need anyone to
defend Him: He is God’s Son, His only begotten Son; He knows it, Jehovah-God
knows it, believers know it, and nothing anyone says or does can ever change
Christianity is a unique religion
I am not a Bible
Scholar, not a historian, not even a student of religions. I am a student of
the Bible, and know just enough about other religions – to know that
Christianity is a religion in it’s own league.
1. Christianity is for ALL people:
discriminate against Nations, tongues, nationalities, color, sex, age or
culture. Jesus died for “mankind”. Christianity is for ALL… for
“Whosoever” would choose to follow Jesus.
2. Christianity costs you nothing – it’s free:
require x-amount of your time; some require x-amount of your money; some even
require your life. Christianity comes marked “PAID”! Jesus paid the
price, when He was crucified on the Cross-for mankind. Salvation, and eternal
life with God our Creator, comes from Jesus, as a free gift – to all who will
3. Christianity can be proved through history:
from the mind of man have no validity. Christianity, the death and resurrection
of Jesus Christ – is a life-changing historical event.
JESUS IS GOD:
The foundation of
Christianity is “Jesus: God in the flesh.” Jesus said: “If you see me,
You’ve seen The Father.” John 14:9
Only one other time,
in my sheltered little life, have I personally heard someone denounce God, or
His Son Jesus Christ. One intelligent, gonna-straighten-her-out college student decided to educate this poor
stupid, brained-washed gal, with statements like: “There is no God!”
“Jesus was only another man!” “You believe that, only because you were raised
by people who believe that, who were raised by people who believed that.” “Get
your head out of the sand… there is no God!” He really dialed the wrong
number that day! hehehe! I met this young man on a train many
years ago, don’t even remember his name. I am confident that somewhere in his
life he has come to a place where he needed Jesus to be part of his life. I
know that he has, or will hear the Gospel of good news and have opportunity to
meet Jesus personally. I also know that
he will one day stand before his maker, and be faced with heaven and hell… if
he believes it, and if he doesn’t! I pray for him when the Holy Spirit
brings him to mind, I hope to meet him in heaven one day.
With this kind of
thing going on around me, Galatians 6:7-8 takes on a new meaning.
third-world-Countries who have never seen a television, a car or a computer,
could easily say: “there is no such thing! That’s from someone’s crazy
imagination!” On this premise I
understand how people who have never
experienced the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, could say that He
is only an “imagined crutch for the weak” – or that He is the “longest-lived
lie of our existence”, etc. But they’ve come WAAAAAAY to late to
tell this girl! I’ve known Jesus
personally since I was a child. I talk with Him every day, and He talks to me;
He directs my life, He protects and provides for me; He is my very best, and
constant friend. He is the peace-of-mind
that mankind searches for; He is the calm in the middle of a storm; Jesus is
the One who will never leave, never fail, and never quit loving me; He is the
Son of God, He is ALIVE today, and HE IS coming back for those who are watching
It is sad that so
many sincere, dedicated people do not know Jesus, and are not given opportunity
to make the choice to know Him. How sad that some have dedicated their life to
an evil kill-and-die kind of “religion” – that knows no love or
compassion. What a blessed people, those who believe are – to know the love of
Jesus Christ, the daily peace-of-mind, and the confidence that we have eternal
life with Him.
I recently heard
Pastor Nasir Siddiki on Benny Hinn’s program. Once a Muslim, with an incurable
disease, he prayed from his hospital bed: Jesus if you’re real, and if you
will heal me – I’ll serve You the rest of my life. Jesus healed him, and later healed his young wife who was
bedridden with MS. PTL!! This couple now pastor a large church, and
see thousands of Muslims come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ each
year. PRAISE GOD! – His mercy
Jesus LOVES the
Muslim people, the agnostics, the atheist and every person ever born. His love
is unconditional, and unending. He still loves the people who do not believe in
Him, even those who crucified Him. He will do everything He can do to get His
truth to mankind, and to rescue them from death and hell. The Bible says that
everyone on the planet WILL HEAR, and that “ANYONE” -“EVERYONE” -
“WHOSOEVER” will, may come to know Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior.
Ultimately it comes down to an individual choice.
I wonder… what harm
would there be in a simple prayer, like: “Jehovah God, if You are real, and
Jesus is Your Son… please reveal Yourself to me.” If there is no God, and Jesus is dead – what
harm could such a prayer bring?

When you know Jesus
like I know Him, you can’t help but want everyone to know Him too. Without
Jesus there is no hope. Without Jesus there is no peace. All good things are
from the Father, and are found inside of knowing Jesus, His Son. What an empty, useless life it would be
God bless you, with
a fresh revelation of Who He is, and of His love for mankind.
