Jesus....the Real thing??

Either Jesus was who He said He was
or
He was just a madman.
Some say He was only a good man
or a prophet.
What do you think?
Consider the following.
He is the only man
in the history of time
to fulfill every single Messianic prophecy.
The mathematical probability of this is
astronomical.
The odds of Jesus
fulfilling just eight (of the hundreds)
of Messianic prophecies is…..1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.
And He fulfilled EVERY one.
Say again??
Yes, every single one.
This is equivalent to covering the entire state of Texas
with silver dollars two feet deep,
marking one of them,
mixing them all up and
having a blind-folded person select the marked one
at random the first time.
(as calculated by author and speaker Josh McDowell)

    Amazing! It makes you wonder how anyone could not believe, but then the devil is very cunning, his infernal arsenal of tools is very extensive, and there is no shortage of fools willing to serve him. However, they will find, as the Apostle Paul put it in Romans 6:23. that “…the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” There is no gift or reward greater than the gift of eternal life or living forever in the presence of God. The wicked will have everlasting life, but that is not the same thing at all!

  • Yes, there is so much in the Bible that is being proven archaeologically every day too. But it comes down to submission to a Higher Authority. Most that do not know Him, have made a choice not to open the Bible and see what it has to say or talk openly to God Himself. They wish to remain on their own throne…not have to answer to anyone. We must never stop praying for them because we will all spend an eternity….as you say….one place or another!

    I believe,…..and real or not,….He`s very much alive in my heart and soul,….
    The peace I have is special,……and no madman could give that to me,…..

  • Amazing isn’t it, that God gives each of us the freedom to choose Him or reject Him? I’ve often heard that some view Him as having been a prophet or just a good man. But I say, if a man made all the claims Jesus made and they turned out not to be true….why would one consider that a ‘good man’??? Thanks John. =)

    i was wondering how is that there was never a j letter in the ancient hebrew language just curious……..

  • I am not a language expert…;) ….but i know the original Hebrew word is Yeshua or YHWH. In early English, the letter J was pronounced as Y and so somewhere in the transliteration it was changed. But then as the English language shifted and we pronounced J as J, it was not changed back!! Also, the Greek comes in to play with the rest of the spelling but it is too much to discuss here. haha. Click here if you would like to read a more detailed description of the change! Thanks for commenting!! Great question! =)

    hey cool its nice to meet someone with the same type thinking as me i also believe in Yahuwah and YashaYAHUW, Yahushua, when i first hear it it was for me Yeshua then it moved to Yahushua and then YashaYahuw as i get to lookin into it i also found this website where they have started printing the original scriptures without all that nonsense you get with the bible some of its true but then i find myself looking through all the holes that it leaves you with , if you are curious it would be www.originalscriptures.com

  • Have you asked your Pastor what he thinks of the original scriptures page?? I’m not clear on what you mean by ‘all that nonsense’ in the Bible? Everything recorded in the Bible is true, has been recorded for a reason. Men, inspired by the Holy Spirit, recorded everything we read both in the Old and New Testament. Re: the Old Testament, there were laws that had to be followed, sacrifices had to be made, because the Savior had not come yet. Men made choices (multiple wives) that were not pleasing to God. Jesus addressed these things….and instructed us in how to live. Eg….one man for one woman. But covering all, is His forgiveness and grace and mercy. And that we are no longer under law. Luke 10:27, Jesus answers the lawyer’s question about inheriting eternal life; ‘So he answered and said, "’You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ We are blessed to be living in the present age, especially as women!! Jesus did more for women’s lib than anyone! As for His Name, I personally don’t get hung up on what it was exactly…He is looking at our hearts. That is one thing Jesus came to do, set us free from religious legalism. If you want to call Him Yashu or some such form, go right ahead! =) I am an American…English speaking and so i call Him Jesus. But i think He is just happy that I call Him at all. ;) ♥

    As for some of the info. in the original scriptures above, we must remember the things addressed were from the book of the Law, a time of God’s judgement but Christ is the New Testament and He fulfilled the law. God’s mercy has been established in place of the Law which brings condemnation and is a ministry that kills (2 Cor. 3:5-11). All the Law and the Prophets have been fulfilled in Christ Jesus. Christ was a foreshadow in the O.T. through everything and He did fulfill even the first 3 feasts of Israel and will also fulfill the last 4 right on time!!! One thing we can be sure of, is God’s word as none of it contradicts itself. Thanks for writing this but some people still won’t or never will believe.

  • =) Thanks Viv! Your words are always full of wisdom and truth. amen.

    one more question i didnt mean to upset you i was told that the harlot mentioned in the bible sits on 7 hills which is exactly where the pope and the roman catholic church sits and that even though most believe the bible today and there are a majority of truths in it the church harlot and some otheres conveniently changed the bible several times over they admit to this
    in fact they arent the first to change things there is a biblical history account of changes made see here
    well the main thing is that i never understood the change from 7th day to 1st day s-day does not even tell you that in there anywhere cept that 6days shalt thou worship and the 7th day was his sabbath not the first day which the church keeps

  • you haven’t upset me….=), see i’m smiling. i ask if you’ve consulted your Pastor in this because I am not one! haha. But i hope you have one that you respect and trust as I do. my husband and i discussed this a bit and we believe that if the versions of the Bible that most Christians are familiar with are So wrong….that our Pastors would be the ones to know, better than we do! After all, they spend their lives in study of the scriptures and of the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic languages. I have every confidence in that what i read whether it be KJV, NJKV, NIV, NLT, etc. is the full Word of God. I don’t believe God wants this to be so complicated. I am aware of some false doctrines that are put forth by the Roman Catholic Church and that is simply because i know what my Bible says. Man still tries to make up rules that God never intended, like the Pharisees did. The best anyone can do to refute these false teachings, is to read their own Bible…something the Catholic church is not a huge advocate of…from what i understand.
    As for what day is the Sabbath…again these are legalistic issues. Jesus came to set us free from this. Jesus Himself, is in fact THE Sabbath. He said enter into MY rest. And Paul taught in Romans 14:5 “In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable”.
    I appreciate having the opportunity to touch on some of these issues, as i am sure there are many others with questions too!! Thanks. =)

    Great discussion on the Bible, Names, and where we are today, or at least 7 months ago, there is an awakening to what we have been taught all these years. We have taken what was given in faith, and played down the changes to make it no big deal. I do believe God the Father the creator of the universe sent his son Yahushua to bring us into fellowship with God the Father. Now the spin for thousands of years set up by first a fake Constantine ruler of Rome that knew if he said he was Christian he could become ruler of the world, so he became one to change the face of time and to begin a government run church. Think about it in a day and time why would government led church slide on taxes if it wasn’t part of the system. Then in the 1600s a masonic ruler King James tweaks the verses so that all could read and still government can control the masses through what they decide to give. So now we worship on a different day than what God set up as the day of rest/worship, we tend to hold more in the name Jesus than we do the Father, while Jesus himself said pray to the Father not me. If you want to say Jesus or Yahushua he is the door, once you are forgiven Yahushua is your brother, and God the Father is to be worshiped, There shall be no other Gods before me. The truth is still in writing and as times go bad the truth is all we have and can depend on. Today Neil Armstrong past away, the media called him a hero the truth is he was able to do Masonic rituals on the moon, never did he give the credit on the achievement to God the Father but to his god and the works of the world mankind. The news media and even the Bible printers are all influenced by the same group. You can say that I am crazy because I listen to a different voice, but all I can says is He that hath an Ear to Hear Hear what is said, or in the last days the very elect will be deceived. The days are upon us we have Evil and Evil running for office of US, anyone that says that they will vote for the lesser of two evils is not listening or has anything to do with the God I AM, he has called you to be a Holy Nation and if you vote or put your mark for either you are helping the Antichrist in the New World Order that has be cunningly crafted for these days to come to light, and going against the will of God the Father. I hesitate to write this but I’m usually asleep now but woke and found this, but my spirit is stirred and you seem open minded to read. Your photo work is fantastic which had drawn me here then saw this old thread and it seem to be a line of waking that hundreds are having at this time, God’s true word is written in the hearts of the believer or better knower, The crumbs King James left us can get us to God the Father, look at the world it is divided and in chaos, God is not the author of confusion He has a rock solid foundation to build on, I think the division in Church is 380 different variations someone is off course, but persecution is coming and the chaff will be separated from wheat, getting this step will help. I was not buying this truth at first either but found a deeper peace and able to see the lies the media is spinning along with what the government is lyng, thanks for the time, ponder it or toss it, its your choice. cg

  • I am happily pondering CG….pleased to know my photos drew you to this….one never knows.
    I am only one follower of Christ amidst millions so my thoughts are only my thoughts…just to keep our dialogue in perspective…;) I do not think you are crazy and I’m sure God smiles at your thoughts and at my reading them! haha. I confess I know very little about the Masonic thing….and don’t really want to know. I’m sure there is soooo much going on in this world…both physically and spiritually that would rock our souls and i’m not sure if that kind of rocking is good…at least not for my nerves. There is a lot I leave in His hands and trust Him with. I move where He leads me to and no further. I certainly worship God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit as I see them as One. I know the Bible teaches Jesus was God in the flesh and His death and resurrection rent the veil in two. Then His Holy Spirit was poured out and is available to those who cry out to His Name…to instruct us, teach us, guide us. lead us.
    What you say about the gov’t, church and taxes is intriguing….very much so. I discussed this with a number of people last night. Also, re: political power….i must confess, there are few in Washington i trust….and I see America, along with the rest of the world, going in a bad direction. But who can really stop it?? God is in ultimate control and His perfect will shall be done. I try to only concern myself with loving others as Christ loves me…believing the best, hoping the best yet with the wisdom from above. I say, try…as I fail more than i wish! I also like what you say on God’s Word being written in the hearts of a true believer…i agree. ♥ His heart is the only heart to have…the only way to understand, truly be able to love with all gentleness and mercy. It is a shame that there is so much division amongst believers, so many denominations….but that is the flesh…we are all so different and God made us this way.
    I appreciate your letter….please stay in touch.
