Do You Know Jesus?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
Do you know Jesus? You can!
Who was Jesus? He told us. His words are recorded in the four gospels.
JESUS IN HIS OWN WORDS
“… for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
“And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.”
“Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
“And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”
“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
–John 10:7, 9-10
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”
–John 10:11, 14
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.”
“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”
“Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.”
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.”
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.”
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
“I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.”
“Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.”
“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”
“Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”
Do you know Jesus?
You can! Right now!
You can put your trust for eternal salvation in Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God.
Hard times are coming. Times in which no amount of physical preparation will be able to save you. Do you know Jesus?
Every man, every woman will make a choice.
There are only two choices. There is no purgatory. That is not in the Bible.
Some have claimed that “A loving God would never send anyone to hell.” They are right: God does not send anyone to hell. People choose, of their own free will, where they will spend eternity.
Don’t delay. Make your calling and election sure: choose eternal life. Place your trust, not on man or man’s schemes of salvation, but on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords: Jesus Christ.
The gospel of Christ has the power to save you!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
