Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:30-31.
"So that you may believe."
Hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
People today are so desperate for hope. So desperate to believe in something.
Also they are looking for something they cannot have. They look to extend their lives and be accepted just as they are. Flaws and all.
In Christ it's possible to come as you are.
But thank God He doesn't leave us in that condition. Sin is forgiven and lives are changed for the better. Those who die in Christ are immediately ushered into His presence.
Our world looks to be accepted as it is...whether or not that person calls it sin.
In the name of tolerance they 'preach' that YOU must accept THEM. But ironically they state that they will not accept YOUR beliefs.
Interestingly everyone who ever lived will indeed admit and confess that Jesus is Lord. Either willingly or unwillingly it is going to happen.
Four Gospel accounts to proclaim the good news. A world that even today is still being discovered. All point to our Creator. There are those who argue that there is no Creator, but they cannot prove it.
"That believing you may have life in His name."
I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. John 5:43
There indeed is a man coming that people will go after. They indeed will follow after him.
I firmly believe that AI (artificial intelligence) is what will be set up in the rebuilt Temple in the book of Revelation. People WILL be forced to believe or else they die.
It isn't so for those who hear the Spirit call to them today and receive the free gift of Salvation. Until Christ Jesus comes again, you have the choice to believe. It's not being forced upon you like other worldly religions. No one is going to kill you for not becoming a Christian. Jesus offers. It's a simple matter of you accepting.
The Gospel accounts are provable. You can also look at world history accounts and see that these events took place. The work of the Spirit of God is very evident throughout the last 2019 years. Much of the unexplainable is indeed explainable when it comes to spiritual matters when you view it from the Bible.
So that you may believe.
In a world that sees so much evil, murders, torture, horrific killings and death. It's looking for something to hope in.
My hope is in Jesus. He sought me a very long time ago. There was no coercion. Nobody pinned me up against a wall with a knife to my throat. The truth of Jesus was a shot to my heart. He saved me. I had but to ask. To believe in the hope He offered.
The same goes for you. The same hope is available and free. There's nobody with you right now forcing you to come to Christ. It's His offer. An offer.
