MYSTERIES OF THE LIFE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS!!!
Dear friends, As you read this presentation, you will get answers of many questions which you might have had in the mind for long time. (Psa 53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there were any that did understand, That did seek after God.
Act 17:26 From one person God made all nations who live on earth, and he decided when and where every nation would be. Act 17:27 God has done all this, so that we will look for him and reach out and find him. He isn't far from any of us,
Act 17:28 and he gives us the power to live, to move, and to be who we are. "We are his children," just as some of your poets have said. By the time you complete this, I hope you may reach a new level of thinking. I pray that God may heal your diseases, turn your sorrows into joy and remove all the burdens on you
and I wish you all the blessings in your life. We might have learnt many subjects in schools and colleges. But all these knowledge will never help us at the time of death or in our life after death. The information below will help you not only in this life but also in your life after death.
1.What is the proof that God created universe?
God has created the universe from out of nothing, because He is almighty God. Only God can create anything out of nothing. Look at the computer. If someone comes and tells you that the computer in front of you is automatically created, would you believe it? If you learn anatomy (subject deals with body structure) then you will see the greatness of God's creation that is you.
Anything which is invented by us is still incomparable to Gods creation. Look at your eyes. It is still million time better than any camera. Examine your brain, It is million time better than any computer. Look at your body. Blood vessels in the body of a 6 feet man if get straightened in one line, it can go around the earth 4 times.
We have Muscular, skeletal, nervous, respiratory, circulatory, digestive and excretory, reproductive, endocrine and immune systems. All the systems works in co-ordination with each other without even our knowledge. What control do we have on our heartbeat, digestion, blood circulation, hormones, growth, and immunity? The only things a man can control are about what to think, what to do, and what to eat.
A person cannot even know what is going on inside his body unless he/she has a problem. How perfectly and amazingly you are created. (Psa 139:13 You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother's womb. Psa 139:14 I praise you because you are to be feared;
all you do is strange and wonderful. I know it with all my heart. Psa 139:15 When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother's womb, when I was growing there in secret, you knew that I was there--- Psa 139:16 you saw me before I was born.
The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book, before any of them ever began. ) Look at the eco system of earth. We breathe oxygen and release Carbon dioxide, and this Carbon dioxide is used by plants to make food and they release Oxygen.
Think about climatic systems, seasons, movement of earth and other planets and stars. If you go deep in any subject, you will wonder about it. ( Psa 19:1 How clearly the sky reveals God's glory! How plainly it shows what he has done! )Couldnt you find a most intelligent and omnipotent creator behind it? We should call anyone God only if He has created the universe.
Because there are millions of spiritual beings exist in universe that has supernatural powers. They also do not have omnipotent power. They are also mere creation of God like us and we are in a better position than them. No spiritual beings includes angels of God are superior to a human being.
(Heb 1:14 What are the angels, then? They are spirits who serve God and are sent by him to help those who are to receive salvation. Revelation 22:9). You are the creation of an omnipotent God. The proof for Gods existence is your existence. You are not accidentally came into this world but Almighty God has created you for His special purpose.
2. Why did God created man?
Why do we want to have children even though it is true that the life will be miserable for the children on this planet and we will have tough time in looking after them? The reason is that we have an inner thirst to love our children and to be loved by them. You know our God is love. (1Jn 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. )
He also have the same passion to love His children. He does not need a partner to produce children. (Mat 3:9 I tell you that God can take these rocks and make descendants for Abraham!)That is the reason He created us on this earth. He is eagerly waiting for us to come back to Him to taste His love.
3.Where God dwells?
In Isaiah 66.1, The LORD said: Heaven is my throne; the earth is my footstool. What kind of house could you build for me? In what place will I rest? I have made everything; that's how it all came to be. But in the bible, it says that God does not stay in manmade temples. We are the temple of God.
(Act 7:48-50 "But the Most High God does not live in houses built by human hands; as the prophet says, 'Heaven is my throne, says the Lord, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house would you build for me? Where is the place for me to live in? Did not I myself make all these things?
Act 17:24 God, who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands. 1Co 6:19 Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God;
1Co 3:16 Surely you know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you! ) We build houses for our dwelling but God made us for him to dwell in us and He made the universe for us to stay. If we do not let God to stay in us, devil will force- fully occupy us. It will never remain vacant.
( Mat 12:43-45 "When an evil spirit goes out of a person, it travels over dry country looking for a place to rest. If it can't find one, it says to itself, 'I will go back to my house. (human body) So it goes back and finds the house empty, clean, and all fixed up. Then it goes out and brings along seven other spirits even worse than itself, and they come and live there. So when it is all over,
that person is in worse shape than at the beginning. This is what will happen to the evil people of this day." ) Now is the time for you to decide whether you want your heavenly Father to stay in you or the enemy of human race-the devil. God is only within somebody whose sins are washed away by the blood of Jesus.
He likes to stay in the hearts of people with only their permission. Unless we invite, He never comes and stays in our heart. (Rev 3:20 Listen! I stand at the door and knock; if any hear my voice and open the door, I will come into their house and eat with them, and they will eat with me. )
4.Who is our true father?
We should know the fact that our parents didnt even know that we were already created in our mothers womb until they got laboratory test report. It means that they are not our creator. They are the means for us to come to this world. A human being is the combination of spirit, soul and body. (1Th 5:23 May the God who gives us peace make you holy in every
way and keep your whole being- spirit, soul, and body -free from every fault at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. When someone dies, everybody says that this is the body of particular person. But nobody thinks where the particular person has gone. He has already left the body and went to spiritual world.
It means that the body is not the person but it is just carrying the spirit of that man. Sometime we may look ugly or handicapped but you need not worry of it because they are just covers. We are the spirits who live inside a body. This spirit is created by God and He is the father of all spirits. (Heb further more we have had
fathers of our flesh which corrected and we gave reverence: Shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live. Mal 2:10 Don't we all have the same father? Didn't the same God create us all? So the conclusion is like this: - We are the spirits and are the creation of God, who is our father in Heaven and our body is the gift of parents
even without their knowledge. (Psa 22:9 You, LORD, brought me safely through birth, and you protected me when I was a baby at my mother's breast. ) That is why it is said that the children are the gift of God. (Psa 127:3 Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a real blessing. )
And you know what a gift is- something given free of cost. Parents have the responsibility to bring them up according to the will of their father in heaven as God has entrusted it with us.
5.Who is this God?
He is the only creator of the universe. We cannot see Him. (1Ti 6:16 He alone has endless life and lives in inaccessible light. No one has ever seen him, nor can anyone see him. ) We cannot even see air and electricity which are mere His creations. It is because human eyes can catch only the reflected sunrays from an object.
We cannot see any transparent item or tiny item. The God himself, angels, and demons are around us. But we cannot see them. Because a spiritual body does not reflect light. God himself has to open our spiritual eyes to see God. The first verse in the Bible is (Gen 1:1) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Nobody can normally believe this statement if we do not know the nature of God. How can we believe, the creation, great deluge, Red sea division, Division of Jordan river, food from heaven to millions of Israelites for forty years, Dead people coming to life resurrection of Jesus and many many things like that? Unless we
know our God our creator, we are going to have thousands of doubt. But the moment we know who is God and what is His nature, we have the answer for all these things. If someone should be acknowledged as God, he should have the following characteristics.
a. Omnipotent: He has indefinable strength to do whatever He wants. He can create and destroy this universe in a fraction of second. He is greater and mightier than universe. The whole universe is like a toy in the hands of God. (Jer 32:17 LORD God, you stretched out your mighty arm and made the sky and the earth. You can do anything.
Jer 32:27 Jeremiah, I am the LORD God. I rule the world, and I can do anything! Isa 40:12 Can anyone measure the ocean by handfuls or measure the sky with his hands? Can anyone hold the soil of the earth in a cup or weigh the mountains and hills on scales?
Isa 40:15 To the LORD the nations are nothing, no more than a drop of water; the distant islands are as light as dust. Isa 40:16 All the animals in the forests of Lebanon are not enough for a sacrifice to our God, and its trees are too few to kindle the fire. Isa 40:17 The nations are nothing at all to him.
Isa 40:18 To whom can God be compared? How can you describe what he is like? Isa 40:19 He is not like an idol that workers make, that metalworkers cover with gold and set in a base of silver.
Isa 40:20 Anyone who cannot afford silver or gold chooses wood that will not rot. He finds a skillful worker to make an image that won't fall down. Isa 40:21 Do you not know? Were you not told long ago? Have you not heard how the world began? Isa 40:22 It was made by the one who sits on his throne above the earth and beyond the sky;
the people below look as tiny as ants. He stretched out the sky like a curtain, like a tent in which to live. Isa 40:25 To whom can the holy God be compared? Is there anyone else like him? Isa 40:26 Look up at the sky! Who created the stars you see? The one who leads them out like an army,
he knows how many there are and calls each one by name! His power is so great--- not one of them is ever missing!) b. Omnipresent: He is present everywhere in the universe all the time. He can be in Heaven and earth, USA and India and listen to the prayers of everyone at the same time.
(Psa 139:6 I can't understand all of this! Such wonderful knowledge is far above me. Psa 139:7 Where could I go to escape from your Spirit or from your sight? Psa 139:8 If I were to climb up to the highest heavens, you would be there.
If I were to dig down to the world of the dead you would also be there. Psa 139:9 Suppose I had wings like the dawning day and flew across the ocean. Psa 139:10 Even then your powerful arm would guide and protect me. Psa 139:11 Or suppose I said, "I'll hide
in the dark until night comes to cover me over." Psa 139:12 But you see in the dark because daylight and dark are all the same to you. Act 17:27 God has done all this, so that we will look for him and reach out and find him. He isn't far from any of us,
This is not possible by any dead saint or even by devil himself. He has even counted our hairs and knows the hairs falling from the body of 6 billion (600crores) people. Mat 10:29 Aren't two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground. Mat 10:30 Even the hairs on your head are counted.
c. Omniscient: It means that He knows everything about the universe from eternity to eternity at the same time. Psa 139:1 You have looked deep into my heart, LORD, and you know all about me. Psa 139:2 You know when I am resting or when I am working, and from heaven you discover my thoughts.
Psa 139:3 You notice everything I do and everywhere I go. Psa 139:4 Before I even speak a word, you know what I will say, Psa 139:5 and with your powerful arm you protect me from every side. Psa 139:6 I can't understand all of this! Such wonderful knowledge is far above me.
When God gives special gift of this knowledge to people, we call them prophets. d. Eternal: He is never born nor he will die. He was always there. He was never non existent in the eternity. (1Ti 1:17 I pray that honor and glory will always be given to the only God, who lives forever and is the invisible and eternal King! Amen.
2Pe 3:8 Dear friends, don't forget that for the Lord one day is the same as a thousand years, and a thousand years is the same as one day.) e. He is Holy God. In Him there is no sin. Even though there is none in the universe to question Him, He will never do unrighteous thing. We are living decently because we are afraid of police, society and hell.
He does not need to be afraid of any one. Still He is holy God. f. He is righteous-He is supreme judge of universe who will reward or punish everyone born on earth at the end of the world without partiality. ( Psa 7:9 You know every heart and mind, and you always do right.
Rev 16:7 After this, I heard the altar shout, "Yes, Lord God All-Powerful, your judgments are honest and fair.) g. He is love- (1Jn 4:8 God is love, and anyone who doesn't love others has never known him. ) Even though He has all this infinite attributes and even we are so unworthy to stand in front of Him,
still He loves us, He listens to every prayers and He cares for us. (Psa 8:3 I often think of the heavens your hands have made, and of the moon and stars you put in place. Psa 8:4 Then I ask, "Why do you care about us humans? Why are you concerned for us weaklings? Psa 8:5 You made us a little lower
than you yourself, and you have crowned us with glory and honor. Psa 8:6 You let us rule everything your hands have made. And you put all of it under our power-- Psa 8:7 the sheep and the cattle, and every wild animal, Psa 8:8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and all ocean creatures.)
It is such a great joy to know that we have such a great loving father. Unless we put toffee in our mouth, we cannot know its taste. If we do not surrender ourselves to our father in heaven, we cannot know him. (Psa 34:8 Oh taste and see that Lord is good: Blessed is the man that taketh refuge in him. )
If we reject him, we will never taste him. What is your decision? h. He is the alone creator of universe. (Neh 9:6 And then the people of Israel prayed this prayer: "You, LORD, you alone are LORD; you made the heavens and the stars of the sky. You made land and sea and everything in them; you gave life to all.
The heavenly powers bow down and worship you.) You can see the unity of universe in their diversity which gives proof that not so many but only one God created this world. The whole earth is same everywhere. Man to man there is no difference except colour and shape. Surely all these attributes of God are beyond the imagination of human being.
It is like teaching trigonometry to any animal which is beyond its brain powers. These things cannot be clearly understood by a man unless it is revealed in our spirit by God. So either we refuse to believe His existence or limit Him to be within our imagination. Atheists are people who cannot grasp all these things.
6.Why do not I feel the presence of God?
We dont feel the presence of God because we are spiritually dead. God is Spirit and only spirit can touch a spirit. When God speaks, He speaks to our spirit instead of our mind. How can we feel His presence if our spirit is dead? You may ask why am I dead spiritually. Our body will die if we drink poison. In the same way, our spirit will die if we do sin.
(Eph 2:1 In the past you were spiritually dead because of your disobedience and sins. Eph 2:2 At that time you followed the world's evil way; you obeyed the ruler of the spiritual powers in space, the spirit who now controls the people who disobey God. )
As the fish is in the water, we were born in sin, lived in sin and did so many sins in our life (Psa 51:2 Wash away all my evil and make me clean from my sin! Psa 51:3 I recognize my faults; I am always conscious of my sins. Psa 51:4 I have sinned against you-- -only against you---
and done what you consider evil. So you are right in judging me; you are justified in condemning me. Psa 51:5 I have been evil from the day I was born; from the time I was conceived, I have been sinful. Rom 3:23 All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. ).
The world is engulfed with sin as the water is filled in ocean. So we cant feel the presence of God. When a person dies, his body return to soil through decomposing, but spirit cannot die in such a way as it is immortal. Death of the spirit means that it is cut off from relationship with the life giver (God).
But it doesnt mean that our spirits are annihilated. And the signs of spiritual death of a person are absence of heavenly joy and peace in ones life. Sin is spiritual leprosy. If someone has leprosy, he loses his touch sensitivity. That is what happened to human race.
God was there with them (Adam and Eve) and He is still with us too. But Adam and Eve could talk to God directly but we are not even able to know about Gods existence. It is a fact that nothing in the universe can exist without Him. (Act 17:28 For we live, move, and exist because of him, )
7.Am I a sinner?
Every person born on earth through parents is a sinner by birth and not only by deeds. The science says parents physical and behavioral qualities are transferred to a child through DNA. A monkey can produce only a monkey and a sinner can produce only a sinner. Watch a child. They fight for everything. They are very jealousy and selfish if somebody touch their parents.
They are very angry if you dont give what they want. God also does not count sins of a child as they are innocent. A cub of a cheetah is very nice when it is newly born, but when it matures, it shows its original nature. We are also same like them. But our sinful character is revealed in the future according to the situations.
In a strict atmosphere we may be good and the same person will be different in a lawless place. Many people remain gentle men because they fear bad name in society. There are good people compared to the antisocial elements, but yet they might be far away from God. We see few people, who never interrupt in others life neither for good nor bad.
The world will proclaim that he is a good person. But God does find him as a selfish man. We are created to love each other. If we do not achieve the standards what God has set, we are sinners. God has created every human in His own likeness and He expects His character to be reflected through our lives.
(Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness) Suppose my computer got damaged severely and I have decided to throw it in garbage box. Just imagine that it says to me like this,` I am doing no harm to you. Why you want to throw me? My answer will be `if you do not serve my purpose for which I purchased, you are a waste for me.
Even though we do not serve Gods purpose, He is not destroying us because of His great mercy. And if God destroy, there is question that how many will be alive on the face of earth. Even if we do not sin, by birth we are sinners. (Psa 51:5 I have been evil from the day I was born; from the time I was conceived, I have been sinful. )
We do not let any dirty animal to come inside our house. It is dirty by birth and it cannot help itself. Man who is born in sin and lives in sin cannot enter heaven. Sins are the fruit of our sinful nature in our body. A tiger kills other animals but it does not know that it is doing sin as it does not have a conscious.
But we do mistakes after many alerts from God through our conscious. Nobody can say that he didnt know when he did mistakes. God always speaks to people through their conscious. (Gen 6:3 And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever,)
When a person is about to commit mistake, he listens to the voice of his conscious, yet his evil mind listens only to devil. (Rom 2:14 For whenever gentiles, who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law.
Rom 2:15 They show that what the law requires is written in their hearts, a fact to which their own consciences testify, and their thoughts will either accuse or excuse them) So we are answerless and waiting to face trial from God. All our activities and thoughts are video recorded and kept in heaven for judgment.
(Rev 20:12 I saw the dead, both unimportant and important, standing in front of the throne, and books were open. Another book was opened-the Book of Life. The dead were judged according to their works, as recorded in the books. Rev 20:13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and all were judged according to their works.)
8. If God exists, why a wicked person does not suffer much on earth?
Kindly read what a man of God is thinking like all others. (Psa 10:1 Why are you far away, LORD? Why do you hide yourself when I am in trouble? Psa 10:2 Proud and brutal people hunt down the poor. But let them get caught by their own evil plans!
Psa 10:3 The wicked brag about their deepest desires. Those greedy people hate and curse you, LORD. Psa 10:4 The wicked are too proud to turn to you or even think about you. Psa 10:5 They are always successful, though they can't understand your teachings, and they keep sneering at their enemies.
Psa 10:6 In their hearts they say, "Nothing can hurt us! We'll always be happy and free from trouble." Psa 10:7 They curse and tell lies, and all they talk about is how to be cruel or how to do wrong. Psa 10:8 They hide outside villages, waiting to strike and murder some innocent victim.
Psa 10:9 They are hungry lions hiding in the bushes, hoping to catch some helpless passerby. They trap the poor in nets and drag them away. Psa 10:10 They crouch down and wait to grab a victim. Psa 10:11 They say, "God can't see! He's got on a blindfold." Psa 10:12 Do something, LORD God, and use your powerful arm to help those in need.
Psa 10:13 The wicked don't respect you. In their hearts they say, "God won't punish us!" Psa 10:14 But you see the trouble and the distress, and you will do something. The poor can count on you, and so can orphans. Psa 10:16 Our LORD, you will always
rule, but nations will vanish from the earth. Psa 10:17 You listen to the longings of those who suffer. You offer them hope, and you pay attention to their cries for help. Psa 10:18 You defend orphans and everyone else in need, so that no one on earth can terrify others again.
Psa 73:1 God is truly good to Israel, especially to everyone with a pure heart. Psa 73:2 But I almost stumbled and fell, Psa 73:3 because it made me jealous to see proud and evil people and to watch them prosper. Psa 73:4 They never have to suffer, they stay healthy,
Psa 73:5 and they don't have troubles like everyone else. Psa 73:6 Their pride is like a necklace, and they commit sin more often than they dress themselves. Psa 73:7 Their eyes poke out with fat, and their minds are flooded with foolish thoughts.
Psa 73:8 They sneer and say cruel things, and because of their pride, they make violent threats. Psa 73:9 They dare to speak against God and to order others around. Psa 73:10 God will bring his people back, and they will drink the water he so freely gives.
Psa 73:11 Only evil people would say, "God Most High cannot know everything!" Psa 73:12 Yet all goes well for them, and they live in peace. Psa 73:13 What good did it do me to keep my thoughts pure and refuse to do wrong?
Psa 73:14 I am sick all day, and I am punished each morning. Psa 73:15 If I had said evil things, I would not have been loyal to your people. Psa 73:16 It was hard for me to understand all this! Psa 73:17 Then I went to your temple, and there I understood what will happen to my enemies.
Psa 73:18 You will make them stumble, never to get up again. Psa 73:19 They will be terrified, suddenly swept away and no longer there. Psa 73:20 They will disappear, Lord, despised like a bad dream the morning after. Psa 73:21 Once I was bitter and brokenhearted.
Psa 73:22 I was stupid and ignorant, and I treated you as a wild animal would. Psa 73:23 But I never really left you, and you hold my right hand. Psa 73:24 Your advice has been my guide, and later you will welcome me in glory.
Psa 73:25 In heaven I have only you, and on this earth you are all I want. Psa 73:26 My body and mind may fail, but you are my strength and my choice forever. Psa 73:27 Powerful LORD God, all who stay far from you will be lost, and you will destroy those who are unfaithful.
Psa 73:28 It is good for me to be near you. I choose you as my protector, and I will tell about your wonderful deeds. ) It is because actual time kept for the judgment of sinners has not yet come. It starts after their death and final judgment will be done after the end of this world. They will have been burning in fire ceaselessly in the hell.
(Rev 20:13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and all were judged according to their works. Rev 20:14 Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. (This is the second death-the lake of fire.)
There is no such cruel punishment existing in this world. So God allow these people to continue their wickedness because He is going to judge them for a permanent and most cruel punishment. (Mal 4:1 The day of judgment is certain to come. And it will be like a red-hot furnace
with flames that burn up proud and sinful people, as though they were straw. Not a branch or a root will be left. I, the LORD All-Powerful, have spoken! ) He does not always judge the sinners upon this earth. (Mat 13:24 He presented another parable to them, saying,
"The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. Mat 13:25 While people were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Mat 13:26 When the crop came up and bore grain, the weeds appeared, too.
Mat 13:27 The owner's servants came and said to him, 'Master, you sowed good seed in your field, didn't you? Then where did these weeds come from?' Mat 13:28 He told them, 'An enemy did this!' The servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and pull them out?'
Mat 13:29 He said, 'No, for if you pull out the weeds, you might pull out the wheat with them. Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, "Gather the weeds first and tie them in bundles for burning, but bring the wheat into my barn."'" Mat 13:36 Then Jesus left the crowds and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said,
"Explain to us the parable about the weeds in the field." Mat 13:37 He answered, "The person who sowed good seed is the Son of Man(Jesus), Mat 13:38 while the field is the world. The good seed are those who belong to the kingdom, while the weeds are those who belong to the evil one.
Mat 13:39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Mat 13:40 Just as weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so it will be at end of the age. Mat 13:41 The Son of Man will send his
angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes others to sin and those who practice lawlessness Mat 13:42 and they will throw them into a blazing furnace. In that place there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father's kingdom. Let the person who has ears listen!" ) Many people follow sinners because they think God is blind or nonexistent and fall in the same trap. It is also a proof of Gods eternal love for man.
He always tries to save a man by extending his life that does not even deserve mercy. (2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slow about his promise,(the end of this age) as some people understand slowness, but is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to perish,(in hell) but wants everyone to come to repentance).
So existence of wicked is not the proof of Gods non existence but it is the proof of Gods undiminishing love for man until his last breath.
9.Are the people going to hell because they are not Christians?
Never. Nobody is going to hell because he is a non Christian. People are going to hell because they knowingly committed sins in their life that includes the so called Christians. If any one has never done any sin, he is qualified to go to heaven. But Bible says there is nobody born on earth who has never done sin. I am telling about saints like Abraham,
Noah, Isaiah, Job etc also. If God want to take even His saints, some one had to die as ransom for their sins. That is why Jesus came down to earth from heaven. Jesus never died for creating another religion but to save all the people from everywhere
Until somebody believes that Jesus died on behalf of him, no one can be saved from hell because nobody died for mankind.
10. Why do man suffers on earth? Is it God who is behind all tragedies?
Will you destroy your own house which you made for your dwelling? God created the world for man and man for God. It is destroyed by human beings and demonic powers together. We are giving authority to devil to destroy the world by doing sins. It is like you are allowing few antisocial elements to stay in your home. They will destroy your home. When someone kills another man,
how can others blame God for that? God foretold us that we should love each other, (Luk 6:27 But I say unto you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, ) but we have never listened. When the whole society does sin, then the sin becomes a burden on earth and it cause destruction.
(Isa 24:4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth 6away, the lofty people of the earth do languish. Isa 24:5 The earth also is polluted under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant.
Isa 24:6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are found guilty: ) Devil wants us to sin so that he gets authority over a person or society. Therefore please do not give chance to devil and blame God for all tragedies.
He sent His only one Son Jesus to save us, not to destroy us. (John 3:17) (Luk 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy mens lives, but to save them.) God loves you.
11. Who created devil?
Nobody created devil as devil. God created Lucifer (Son of light) an archangel to be with Him. He was full of glory and he became arrogant which made him son of darkness. (Ezekiel 28:11-19) He himself became devil from an angel by his own choice. There is no hand of God behind it. No child is born as murderer but often they become murderer by their own choice. But a Mother Theresa and Florence Nightingale become angels by their own choice. What is your choice?
12. Why God permits devil to mislead human beings? Suppose the devil would not have been there, is it correct to think that we would not have done sin?
When Lucifer did sin, 1. There was no sin in the whole universe, 2. There was no devil existed in the past to influence him. He become devil without any external influence. This chance of turning themselves against the order is because of the freedom offered by God unless we cannot enjoy the true life. Otherwise we would have been like a Computer, Sun and Earth.
(This only obeys their commanded order and has no freedom to do itself). But God wants children who loves Him in all circumstances and not the one like the computer or those who turn away in the course of time. It does not make any difference that whether devil exists or not because he has no authority on man until he obeys devil.
Suppose devil was not there in the universe, still there was a chance of someone turning against God as all have free will. So we can accuse neither devil nor God for that and we have to accept the fact that it is our own mistakes. Because of devil, there is a filtration is taking place between good and evil people.
In the near future, after the great war of nations against Israel, devil and his angels will be put in hell for 1000 years. During that time, there will be peace. After that, he will be left free for a short time. Here again this devil will make everybody the enemy of God and the nations will come against Jerusalem for war.
It means that these people who were good was not actually not good which was proved by only releasing devil. That is what is going on now. But the time is coming for creation of new earth and heaven. There will be nations and human race but there will be no devil. But the people who were good Christians here are going to be Kings on earth.
That is why they are tested here.Those who listen to devil become his children (1Jn 3:8 The person who practices sin belongs to the evil one, because the devil has been sinning since the beginning.) and those who listen to God become his children. We can see in the New Testament that Jesus was lead by the
Holy Spirit to wilderness to be tempted by devil.(Mat 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. )If Jesus has won him, we can also do that. So it is easy for God to choose His children. He chooses people who do not turn away from god in this world when they have lot of chances for doing sin.
You may know the truth that God also talks to you through your conscious. Whom do you listen? (Isa 30:21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, you will hear a voice saying, "This is the road! Now follow it.)
13. Why Christians preach Jesus Christ?
Many people think that Christians preach Christianity for multiplying their religion. But it is a false assumption. We preach gospel out of pure love even not considering the death threats as we believe that people cannot be saved from their sins without Jesus and they cannot enter heaven and surely they will fall into hell for eternal torment.
We wish that everyone should enter Heaven along with us. There is only one person in the world that died for the sins of the world and only He can save people. He is the only one qualified to save us from hell. (Act 4:12 There is no salvation by anyone else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved. )
And the Bible says it is the responsibility of those saved to save the same generation from hell. The good news is handed over to us. (Mat 28:19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
Mat 28:20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age. ) If I did not preach Good news and my neighbour went to hell, I will be responsible for his life in hell. After informing them the truth and they decide themselves to reject it, they will be solely responsible for that.
(Eze 3:17 "Mortal man," he said, "I am making you a lookout for the nation of Israel. You will pass on to them the warnings I give you. Eze 3:18 If I announce that someone evil is going to die but you do not warn him to change his ways so that he can save his life, he will die, still a sinner, but I will hold you responsible for his death.
Eze 3:19 If you do warn an evil man and he doesn't stop sinning, he will die, still a sinner, but your life will be spared. Eze 3:20 "If someone truly good starts doing evil and I put him in a dangerous situation, he will die if you do not warn him. He will die because of his sins---I will not remember the good he did---
and I will hold you responsible for his death. Eze 3:21 If you do warn a good man not to sin and he listens to you and doesn't sin, he will stay alive, and your life will also be spared.) So we risk our life for others and preach Jesus to save people from hell.
Many people become good evangelists because God showed them in a vision that millions of people falling into hellfire. So they dedicated their life to Gospel. For this purpose, hundreds of true Christians are being killed around the world without understanding their love for them.
14. What is death?
The physical death is a blessing to man who was born as a sinner. In the beginning, God created man to be immortal. The world was like heaven when it was created. But when they violated Gods command and did sin, they died spiritually. (Gen 2:17 except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad.
You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day. ). They fell short of Gods glory. (Rom 3:23 everyone has sinned and is far away from God's saving presence. ). They lost peace and happiness, and got filled with evil passions. Many times we even hated our own life.
The body which lost Gods glory started deteriorating as a result of sin. Just imagine, you are too weak to even walk, have no peace and you are under strong depression. You want to die and tried all means for committing suicide but you could not die. If this is the case of every man on earth,
what would have been the present condition of the world? It would have been a big hell. That is why God created death to save man from the results of sin. Sadhu Sunder Singh once told like this: - if you talk to a child in mothers womb, `Son, you are going to come out from stomach to a beautiful place in few days.
It will not believe you even if it can think. it will say, ` this is my world and I dont believe what I cannot see. But in the tenth month, it has to leave its old dark world and should come to a better, beautiful sunny world. It will see the world and tell that all what it heard was true. In the same way, we are in the body which is like a womb. Within 80 or 90 years,
one has to come out of body and go to another world. During this time God wants our inner man to grow up to the stature of Christ. (Eph 4:13 till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a full-grown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:).
That is how it is presently designed. Where he will go after death depends on how he lived here with God. Those who lived according to the lust of the body and against the conscious will go to the hell. Those who obeyed God and lived a good life will go to heaven. Every person has a wish to be in heaven and
all governments have tried hard to make heaven on earth but they cannot do it in this sinful world. God has created it free of cost for you which are available after your death. The greatest specialty of a true believer is that he has no fear of death as he knows where he is going after that. All his life was set to go there.
15. If I am born in Christian religion, Do I also need salvation?
Jesus did not come here to establish any religion, but to save everyman He created on the face of earth. People in Christian religion are also sinners in the same way like other non Christians. I am not talking about the people already given their heart to Jesus. Nicodemus was a teacher, a very good man of Israel.
But Jesus told him that `except a man born again, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.(John 3:3) Then every man born on earth should be born again to enter Kingdom of God. The future is going to be very hard for the people who knew Jesus and rebelled against him.
16. How the mankind is offered salvation?
There are some teachings which says that, even if we commit any mistakes; we will be delivered from the results of our sins by doing some rituals. I want to ask you a question. Imagine that you are a judge and your child has killed a man and if he has been brought in front of you with all evidence.
Can you let him go without punishment just because he is your son? You know that it is impossible. If it is impossible for a judge who himself is a sinner, just imagine how can a God who is supreme righteous judge of universe can leave us without punishment even though we are beloved to him.
In fact if God is going to judge, no man can escape as God knows even our thoughts and remember all our deeds.(Mat 12:36 I promise you that on the day of judgment, everyone will have to account for every careless word they have spoken. ) Every sin we committed is primarily against God and also against fellow beings.
(Luk 15:18 I will go to my father and say to him, 'Father, I have sinned against God in heaven and against you. ). But He wanted to save us without diluting His quality as a righteous judge. The only way was there is to come down as a man and live an innocent life and die for the mankind as a ransom.
(Joh 10:11 I am the good shepherd, and the good shepherd gives up his life for his sheep. ) Most of the religions have animal sacrifice whose blood is shed because of the sins we commit. But here, God himself became a man to die for the people. What a great love!!
John 3:16-21 says "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned,
but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light
for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." He gave you salvation (in simple words-permission to stay with Him forever in Heaven) free of cost. You need not to do any work to get it and you cannot do also.
The reason the salvation is free of cost is because even if you give the whole world, you cannot purchase it. If someone is in 3 rd stage of cancer, can he purchase his own life with any amount of money? Then how can we purchase such a great salvation. Whoever understands that he is a sinner and needs forgiveness from God should believe that Jesus came
to the earth to die on behalf of him. We should believe that blood of Jesus washes us from all our sins (1Jn 1:7. And the blood of his Son Jesus washes all our sins away. ) and should take decision to live a holy life according to Gods will. Then Jesus will wash us with His blood and we are saints by grace now. If we remain in the same status and dies, we will go to heaven after death.
Life in this world is very very small compared to eternal life. It is like one dust particle in the whole universe. What you prefer? To live a sinful life and its joy which we dont know when will it end, and go to hell forever or suffer here as a good man with heavenly joy and peace in your heart and go to heaven for ever.
Leaving sinful life is difficult if we do not believe in eternal glory (Rom 8:18 I am sure that what we are suffering now cannot compare with the glory that will be shown to us. ). If you believe that you are a sinner and needs forgiveness from Jesus and inherit the kingdom of God, please repeat this prayer:-
My father in heaven, as I read this book, I came to know that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus came to this earth from heaven and died for my sins so that I can live a holy life here and come to heaven after my death. Wash my sins with the blood of Jesus. Give me power to live a holy life on this earth.
Help me to love you and other fellow beings. Thank you for forgiving my sins. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Save me from devil. I ask in precious name of Jesus. Amen.If you have prayed this prayer sincerely, you are not an enemy of God but a child of God. (1Jn 3:1 Think how much the Father loves us. He loves us so much
that he lets us be called his children, as we truly are. But since the people of this world did not know who Christ is, they don't know who we are.) Jesus will be your helper and He will heal your diseases. Please tell others about what happened to you. (Mar 8:38 Don't be ashamed of me and my message among these unfaithful and sinful people!
If you are, the Son of Man will be ashamed of you when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. ) We are responsible for the salvation of other people. Read Bible everyday and understand Gods will for you. Pray whenever you get time (Eph 6:18 Never stop praying, especially for others.
Always pray by the power of the Spirit. Stay alert and keep praying for God's people. Col 4:2 Never give up praying. And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful., 1Th 5:17 and never stop praying.). Be baptized by fully immersed in water.
(Mat 28:19 Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, ). Find a fellowship (Church) where Gods power and presence is revealed.( Act 2:47 And the Lord added to the church daily, such as should be saved.)
If you have cheated any one and kept their property with you, please give it back. (Luk 19:8 Later that day Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "I will give half of my property to the poor. And I will now pay back four times as much to everyone I have ever cheated."). If you have enemies please go and speak with them and make them friends.
Always rejoice as you are saved out of hell. When trouble comes, hold Jesus firmly. He will save you on time. Have a new blessed life.
My brief testimony
Even after born and brought up in a Christian family especially by a pious mother, I became an atheist for some time. In fact, I did not want to believe in a God who is not existing. If I believe in non existing God, I would be a great fool at the end. And all the sacrifices I did for Him will be in vain. So I decided not to believe in God. But there were certain incidents
which forced me to search the truth. As an atheist, I had so many doubts about nature and God. I asked God to clear all my doubts and He did that. I made sure that I am believing in true God. Since 1995, I can assure you that I never turned back nor I felt that I believed in false God. I have experienced that everything written in Bible is true. So now I dare to teach
what I believe from my heart. I am sure that you will also not be ashamed if you follow Jesus. Jesus has been my greatest comfort all these days. Whenever I fell down, He took me up and carried me. In trouble, He consoled me. In loneliness, He was my true friend. You will also say the same after few years if your heart is not corrupted.
Thank you very much for spending your precious time reading this presentation. If you think this is wrong, you can delete this presentation. And if you are thinking this is correct, and if you love Jesus, kindly forward this to your friends who does not know the truth because you are responsible for them. Also if you have any opinions/ suggestions/doubts/ criticism, kindly send it to me. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you!
