Reason 25: Zechariah 12:9-10, First Coming and Second Coming 520 B.C.
The two portraits of the Messiah and God’s plan for the nations are clearly presented here in Zechariah 12. It’s important to note, that God is speaking “First Person” through Zechariah as the details of the “Last days” are revealed.
Jerusalem is the focus of the world, the nations are gathered together against the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel. The whole world is on edge as Jerusalem becomes the focus of the nations. These words are being fulfilled today.
Reason 21: The Shroud of Turin Physical Evidence of Jesus Resurrection
Is there any physical evidence Jesus even existed? Yes, beside the archeological evidence found in Jerusalem confirming the testimony of scripture. One of the most amazing and controversial pieces of evidence for Jesus of Nazareth is the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud of Turin is rectangular cloth measuring 4.4 × 1.1 m (14.3 × 3.7 ft), the cloth is woven in a 3 to 1 Herringbone twill. On this cloth is an image of man both the front and back, he appears to be been crucified, his arms and legs are pierced, along with his side. His front and back appear to be whipped, and his head appears to have the wounds from piercings of thorns.
The question asked by is this Jesus’ burial cloth or is it just an artist’s forgery? Critics argue that this was created in the middle ages and is just a forgery. They say carbon dating has proven it has been dated to the 12th century, therefore
Reason 18: Isaiah 53: Jesus Ministry described 700 years before His Birth
Why should anyone believe in Jesus? What proof do we have that he lived? This is a charge skeptics, atheists and secularists often make about Jesus. How would you respond? What proof do we have that Jesus lived? Of course one response is we have a non-Christian witness to the life of Jesus, both Roman and Jewish historians wrote about him. Most of all, we have those who walked and talked with Jesus, they affirmed he exist in the New Testament era.
There is another witness about Jesus, it’s the Old Testament, the Old Testament was written between 1450 to 425 B.C., yet it gives us detailed information that can only be fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ revealed in the New Testament. One of the most powerful examples for any Christian to be armed with is Chapter 53 of Isaiah.
Reason 8: The Historicity of the Old Testament (Tanakh)
The Bible both Old and New Testament were written over a period of time covering more than 1500-years. From 1450 B.C, to almost 100 AD, the words of the Bible were written within the context of the historical events of the day. If the Bible is to be considered accurate and true, the events recorded in the Bible should correspond with the recorded historical events outside of the Bible.
Reason 7: The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Silver Scrolls
In 1947, near the Dead Sea in an area known as Qumran ancient Hebrew manuscripts were discovered that had been hidden for thousands of years. Prior to the discovery of these manuscripts, the oldest existing complete copies of the Old Testament were only dated to 1008 A.D., causing many to question the reliability scripture. At the site of Qumran, the community known as the Essenes were actively involved in the copy and transmission of scripture, before their destruction by the Romans in the first and second century. The Essenes hid their treasured manuscripts in caves to prevent their destruction by the Romans. Hidden away they would be discovered two-thousand years later.
Reason 6: Protein Manufacture: Ribosomes Prove the Existence of God
How could we ever live without our laptops and cell phones which are really mini computers? It’s hard to believe but computers and cell phones are relatively new technology that did not exist 100-years ago. Its hard for us to realize the incredible foundation of discovery that is required for the computer to even exist, first we need the invention of electricity, then the design of microprocessors, software design, the design of plastic, glass and metal to house the equipment and the list goes on. Each of these revolutions in technology were used to develop the laptop and cell phone many of use for business, home and entertainment. We reap the benefits of years of research and development for the past thousand years of human existence.
Introduction to the End Times
What is the most powerful weapon on earth?
What is the most powerful weapon on earth? Weapons experts agree it’s the Tsar Hydrogen Bomb detonated on October 30th 1961. The bomb had a yield of 50 Megatons of TNT, it was the most powerful man-made explosion in history. The explosion was the equivalent of 1570x of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions, it was 10x all the conventional weapons used in WW II. Nikita Khrushchev, head of the Soviet Union, wanted to demonstrate his nation’s power to the world and in particular the United States.
Today most nuclear powers, use the same technology in their own missiles. Where does a Hydrogen bomb get its power? It uses the power present in the Uranium238 atoms and unleashes it the right time to deliver a devastating attack on its intended target. The power was always present in
Dr. Nabeel Qureshi Conversion from Islam to Christianity
Raised as a devout Muslim in the United States, Qureshi grew up studying Islamic apologetics with his family and engaging Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian at his university, the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam. Nabeel’s resulting journey was chronicled in his first book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. In addition to being a New York Times bestseller, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was awarded the Christian Book Award for the categories of both “Best New Author” and “Best Non-Fiction” of 2015. Christianity Today heralded Qureshi as one of “33 Under 33” in its cover story on emerging religion leaders in July 2014.
Revelation Chapter 21:Eternity: New Heavens, New Earth and New Jerusalem
Where will you be in one million years? Stupid question? To most living in the world there is no perception of what an eternal existence means. Jesus in the Book of Revelation takes us to the window of eternity and peels back the curtain to give us a view of what "Eternity" is going to be like. As a believer in Jesus Christ, you can look forward to an Eternal existence in the presence of God, you will live in God's house, with the "Saints" and angels. In Revelation Chapter 21, Jesus, through John, expands the details of this existence. Jesus wants us to envision our future home, He wants us to invite everybody we know, with the time we have.
