IS JESUS CHRIST ALIVE AND ACTIVE TODAY, IN THE 21ST CENTURY?

 

We, human beings, citizens of this planet earth, live today in the 21st century, in the age of information and great knowledge and technology. If something unusual happened in one country or in one place the entire world immediately knows . News spreads in minutes and all know what has happened. Yes, it is true we know what had happened, but we do not know what will happen, it is also true. We all know and we all agree with this point, that tomorrow’s day is not revealed for us. We do not know what the future holds for each of us. We do not know what is around the corner waiting for us, our family and our loved ones. We do not know what may happen in five minutes from now in our lives. The most wise man on this earth cannot predict what tomorrow will bring to our planet; earthquake, tsunami, wild fire and so on. The most prominent politician cannot predict what will be in the political arena in the near future. The most prominent economist cannot foresee what will happen in the economical world tomorrow. In our private life we do not know what tomorrow holds for us and for our loved ones; joy, prosperity, bankruptcy, sickness or even death. The future is not revealed for people and it is fact, it is reality, it is true, nobody can contradict it, nobody can say otherwise.

Two thousand years ago Jesus Christ said: “ And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come”. Mat. 24:14.

Jesus Christ, Son of God, pronounced these words when the gospel was not even written yet. Today our eyes see, our own ears hear the fulfillment of His words and prophecy. Today the gospel is preached everywhere, all over the world, in the churches, on streets, on the radio, TV, Internet, Facebook, you tube and so forth. Today the Holy Bible is translated into almost every language that is spoken on planet earth. And Jesus’ words echo through high mountains and deep valley, large crowded cities and small quiet villages, vast wilderness and spacious coasts of the oceans. His word reaches west and east, north and south. His words echo throughout the whole universe for thousands of years and they will echo until He returns for His precious Bride-the Church. Nobody is able to stop His words. There is no power, no authority to silence His message, because it is written:

“ Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.” Mat. 24:35. It is fact, it is reality. Nobody can contradict it, nobody can say otherwise, because it is true.

Dear Atheist, how could an ordinary man (as you asserted with such a great power that Jesus was) know what will be today, after two thousand years?  How could ordinary man foresee that today millions of pastors, preachers, evangelists will be preaching the gospel all over this planet? How could an ordinary man know that millions of people will listen to His words, will become His followers, newborn Christians? Can you answer this question? Would you please think this over and over very deeply and find the correct answer. At first, please answer it to yourself and then to the entire word!

On the pages of the Holy Bible Jesus Christ was named the Word: “ He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God”. Rev. 19:13.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”. John 1:1-3+13-14.

So Jesus Christ was called The Word, The word of God. And today the Word of God has been preached and heard all over this planet earth. Today, in the 21st century The Word of God is alive and active. Since the Word of God is alive and active, Jesus Christ is alive and active also. The fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy, Jesus’ prediction, Jesus’ words are irrefutable proof of His existence. It is fact, it is reality, nobody can contradict it, nobody can say otherwise, because it is true.

Yes! Jesus Christ is alive and active today in the 21st century, and His invitation is in effect. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. Mat. 11:28.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me”. Rev. 3:20.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life”.  John 5:24.  Jesus Christ never forces anyone to follow Him, but His love and sacrifice attracts millions of people to be His followers.

Dear Atheist, what explanation do you have from your scientific point of view for this fact, for this reality? Can you answer this question how did Jesus Christ know the future?  But if you do not have any explanation for this truth, you cannot answer this simple question of life, you will kill and bury evolution by your own hands for ever and ever. There will be no evolution on this planet earth anymore. So, would you please try harder to defend your statement, otherwise you will be defeated completely.

Dear Reader, this is no coincident that you read this posting, Jesus’ love caused it, because you are precious in His eyes. May God richly bless you and use you for His glory.

 

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

P.S.

Yes, it is true that I talk to Jesus Christ every single day and several times a day and He talks to me, but not so often. It is fact, it is reality, it is true!  Jesus Christ is alive and active today in the 21st century!!!

    Dear Janina,

    Thank you for your kind letter and for taking the time to write. I have noted all your points, particularly the ones about “prediction” of future events. 

    Just, as you acknowledged, there were any number of claims for virgin births, resurrections, healings, etc., there were also any number of predictions made throughout history by any number of “prophets”; some were born out and some were not. Due to confirmation bias, selective memory, fortuitous events and some effective “marketing” Christianity is still around today.

    Please familiarize yourself with the science of probability and history. I also suggest the following websites for your education – http://secularethics.wordpress.com/2012/06/11/biblical-prophecy-and-occams-razor/ , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias#Biased_memory as well as this post in a Christian forum http://500questions.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/iou/.

    You are obviously a caring person. I hope whatever brand of Christianity you are part of is kind and does not seek to limit who you can be or what you can be due to your gender, race or any other personal characteristic.
