Looking for real hope in this dark, violent world? You have found it. Real Hope isn’t a thing, it’s a person – Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God. He is free from all sin. He came to earth for you, was beaten, tortured and died. Three days later He rose from the grave victorious over death, hell and the grave!
How does this help you? It doesn’t unless you do something about it. It’s so simple. Jesus loves you and wants to save you, to give you a real future and a hope that this world can never take away.
How can you obtain this free gift? The bible tells us how:
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Simply confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Son of God, believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Tell the Lord you are sorry for your sin, accept Jesus into your heart and the bible says you will be saved. You will have the assurance that when this life is over, you will spend eternity with God in heaven, far after all the sin and corruption of this world has long passed away.
Someone may say: ‘there are many religions – why cant we just choose any one of them?’
Because Jesus said:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the only way to God – there is no other. Jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophecies, foretold centuries before His birth. How could one man meet every one of these prophesied requirements foretold centuries beforehand unless He was who He said He was – God’s Son in the flesh.
Someone may say: ‘How can we trust the Bible. It is just another book’.
Because of NUMEROUS evidences that authenticate it. First, the scrolls that make up the Bible have been found in caves in numerous locations, and they match each other word for word. Second, the Bible has what are called Bible codes. This means that in the original language, if you count a set distance between letters, there are hidden words embedded inside of it, relating to current events today. How could someone know about the name of these events, much less insert them into an ancient book, unless they knew the future? Just as a comparison, other books such as the book of mormon, the koran, etc. do not have these codes but only yield gibberish. Someone may say, you can find any word in any book if you randomly select spacing between words. Yes, but we are not talking about one letter from one page compared with a letter on another page. The Bible codes we are referring to are in VERY close proximity to one another, like in the same sentence. If you restrict the search to these parameters, only the Bible yields not only words, but words that refer to events happening now.
Accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior is an act of faith that everyone must eventually decide. However, you can rest assured knowing that there are many concrete evidences that also show that He really is the way, the truth and the life!
