It’s easier to convince one that God created the world including us humans and all other life, than to make Jesus known to one. I acknowledge that Jesus walked the face of Earth as a man, and most people see Him only as another man who is good and wise beyond His years. The fact that His life has been documented and scrutinized more than any other life that has ever existed in this world, people seem to ignore what makes Him uniquely our Savior. Jesus was born a virgin birth, worked many miracles such as raising the dead, and Himself was raised from the dead, and accented into the heavens after walking around for 42 days after His resurrection witnessing to many people.
I am going to regress to historical man who seeks what is the standard; who is our standard. A group of people by necessity seek a leader. This can be reduced to only two persons. If they are to live together, than one must be the head. Sharing decisions of course is much easier with two persons, but sharing is almost impossible for the masses. By necessity, there must be one leader.
Now lets leap into the problem of actually perceiving reality. Can anyone grasp reality? So far, most intellectuals agree that even if one experienced absolute reality they wouldn’t know it, and if they strongly sensed that they had experienced it, than proving it would be impossible.
Adam and Eve faced this when they ate from the tree of knowledge of what is right or wrong to become gods themselves. The only problem is that we depend on our Creator Who is the only absolute. This means that God is the only One Who determined what is right or wrong at each instant of our life in an absolute sense, and not in a relative sense as man must make his determinations. After Adam and Eve disobeyed God they were sent on a long journey that would never end because they would never be able to decide what is right or wrong absolutely in any instant nor in any eon of time because only God has the power to absolutely decide what is right or wrong. This is our first sign that man necessarily need a Savior from God; a Savior from God’s Kingdom Who is perfect.
Two imperfect persons can only compromise with the results being imperfect; a group can only negotiate a temporary, imperfect solution. Man can only thrive for perfection without an end. By the Grace of God, man is given enough rewards in life to survive and make a living by his thriving for perfection. Who is the Messiah who will bring perfection, and solve all of man’s problems?
One live by codes, social norms, and many precepts after precepts unto concepts which under scrutiny fall short and a need for other concepts are realized which in time become a precept of a higher concept. The culmination of all guides to one’s life remain fragmented and lack perfect continuity; lack perfection. Who is perfect? If we knew who is perfect than that One could be a substitute for each of our mind, and become each person’s guide into a perfect utopia.
Separation from God is death. There is a death sentence on all the world because it is temporary. All things die. All things end. Can man ever regain eternal life? Yes, because God sent His Son to give His life as a ransom to redeem us from the death sentence. Being in the presence of God there is no death.
High headed men say arrogantly why don’t Almighty God just give us eternal life since he is all-powerful and smart. It very simply; God don’t want robots as children; God want you to choose Him and love Him only above all the temptation in existence. This existence came when God gave a part of His Life to each human; the same life to each; but our brains and minds which interface us with creation are very different, and usually rebellious to God. Who can bring us peace between man and God?
Jesus said that “Heaven is at hand.” The inspired Word of God says the Son of God Who is God among us in the flesh, 100% man and 100% Divine, has brought the gift of eternal life. God is the only entity that can give eternal life.
There will always be strife between men, and between man and God unless a perfect life become a substitute for our imperfect interfacing with God and nature. Our minds are like mosaic window panes in which we look through a veil dimly and perceive distorted thoughts.
Science, technology, and all the conventions of men can not solve the heart problem of man which has self at the center, neither can man achieve perfection without God.
God has only one Son. Jesus is necessary to save and return us unto God’s Kingdom. God in the flesh shed His blood because He desires that we choose Him. Let the Lord have His way. If one’s old self die while receiving the Lord in its place a wonderful thing happen; the new self in Christ Jesus gains life 10 times more than what one had in the first place.
