“Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” Jesus, Mark 3:35
(We, as Christians, have two choices:
1- We should believe in Jesus as the person he claimed to be.
2- We should accept that he was a lunatic liar.
The scriptures tell us that Jesus is not a liar. So, we believe in him as the person he claimed to be.)
You could not miss the above phrases if you spent some time with the Christians. The above philosophy is quite common in this fellowship.
However, this is not the question that Jesus was a liar or not. The question is to see if Jesus claimed to be what we, as Christians, believe he claimed. The question is if Jesus truly claimed to be God with the same power and knowledge? The question is if Jesus ever claimed faith alone could save you.
This considerably long biblical message is to help you find out the truth. The final truth will not take the love of Jesus away from us. Just on the contrary, it will give us the opportunity to love him more. For sure, if this happens, he will love us even more.
This biblical message includes the following parts:
- Is ‘just believe and you are saved’ true?
- Is Jesus the only way?
- Is Jesus God?
- Reminder and The Reminded Way in bible.
Most part of this message was written long ago. However, I have been waiting for a person during all this time. He is worthy of such a waiting.
I am still your student and will remain so for the rest of my life. I owe you a new life in love and my love for you will live eternally in me. You have given me a new life and I love it no matter how difficult it would be.
I am confident that you still love me even though I may have broken your heart. I am also confident that you believe that God has a purpose for each one of us; that is why we are here at this very moment. I know it is really hard for people, especially in your situation, to accept something new particularly when it is said by a young newcomer. However, I am happy that you have not completely abandoned me, which means a lot to me.
I understand and do respect your love although it is somehow being offered in silence. I thank God for letting me have the joy of knowing such a truth.
Let Jesus judge us on revealing his words to the world. I know you love him too much. I am not taking that love away from you. I am deepening that love by revealing the truth of his words. You would love him more when you know him more. There is no evil thought in me against Jesus. I am not destroying him. I am revealing him as he was and God knows that this would make him happy. Let us let the world know him truly so that they may live in peace. There is an ocean in his words. Those who reach the bed of this ocean will find the precious pearl and those who swim at the surface will have a lot of foam.
God knows that it was not easy for me to accept such a challenging duty. You know, better than any other person, that I have sacrificed my life for this mission. You told me once to trust in God and do His will and I have taken your advice. I have put my hope and trust in Him although I know that my close friends may disown me, which is painful. It was unbelievably hard for me to say no’ to such a person who could save my family. I hope you understand me.
This is in my dream that one day you and I will sit face to face again to talk about God’s words. How sweet that moment would be!
