5  DEVIDE the enemy….There are so many religions today…….  Islam, Hindu, Judaism, Buddhist, Christian, Scientology, etc, etc  Figures might vary,… but this is a start: Which religion is the real truth ?

7  Let’s then focus on the biggest religion…Christianity  Christianity is all about Jesus Christ, God’s plan to send his Son to earth as a sacrifice for man/woman’s sins(wrongdoings). Man cannot save himself by his own works.  Christianity’s book is called the “Bible”. If we then need to know if Christianity is really the truth,… then … …. we HAVE to look into this BOOK for some TRUTH…  If the book shows divine proof (without any doubt..), then we can believe the religion as the TRUTH….So here we go !

8 The Bible is a collection of books (Biblos) revealing God's Salvation plan for man. These books unwrap the mystery of the crucifixion to reveal the power of the Lord's wounds, offered to God the Father, as the remedy for all evils, a power that bonds our hearts to His Heart. This religion is called grace ! Bible Facts: BC = Before Christ’s birth. AD = After Christ’s death  The Bible contains 66 books, divided among the Old and New Testaments.  The Old Testament autographs were written B.C.  The New Testament autographs were written between A.D.  What is the longest chapter in the Bible? Psalm 119  What is the shortest chapter in the Bible? Psalm 117  Which chapter is the middle of the Bible? Psalm 118 There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118 There are 594 chapters after Psalm 118 The entire New Testament was canonized (put together) before the year 375 A.D. and the Old Testament had previously been canonized long before the advent of Christ.

11  Predicting one specific historical event in the future is possible by guessing.  Predicting many specific historical events in the future is very unlikely by guesswork.  Predicting a series of specific historical events in the future and in a specific order, is even more unlikely by guesswork. It is impossible… Bible Facts – Prediction vs. Design:  If you play a single digit lottery, your chances of predicting it correct is 1 out of 10.  If you play a double digit lottery, your chances of predicting it correct is 1 out of 100  If you play a four digit lottery, your chances of predicting it correct is 1 out of  To predict another 4 digits correctly, your chances of predicting it correct is 1 out of (One Hundred Million)  To predict another 4 digits correctly, your chances of predicting it correct is 1 out of See where this is going ?

12  So… what is the chances of a series of predictions about Jesus Christ, actually becoming true?,  What is the chances of these predictions made by different people, thousands of years prior to his birth, …. actually becoming true?  Did someone design it ! Someone as divine called God Almighty ?  According to Christianity, these events of the future, was revealed by God to various people called prophets, who recorded their predictions in scriptures. These predictions (prophecies) are all compiled in a book called the Holy Bible. Bible Facts – Prediction vs. Design: In other words, it would be almost impossible for the predictions to happen merely by coincidence. According to Christianity, it is more likely to have occurred by design. Lets see then if it’s true?

38 John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!” John 14:8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” John 14:9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? John 14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. John 14:7 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.

44 Mat 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: Mat 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: Mat 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

45 Isa 2:19 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

46 1.God loves you John 3:16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. 2. Everyone has sins. Sins separate us from God… Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3. God hates sins, and He has to judge us. Psa 7:11 God is an honest judge. He is angry with the wicked every day. 4. Jesus died for our sins Isa 53:5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. Isa 53:6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all. 5. What should you do ? John 3:18 There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. John 3:18 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.

47 Are you saved yet ? Do you HONESTLY want to be saved? John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

48  Pray the following simple prayer to be saved…. Are you saved yet ? Do you HONESTLY want to be saved? Dear Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, and I need Your help I cannot save myself, and I need You to take away my sins Lord Jesus, I accept You as my personal Saviour Please come and change me through Your righteousness. Please come and stay in my heart Amen ! Now you can be 100% sure: Rev 3:20 Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Rev 3:21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.
