LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT JESUSby

(In this paper I give many citations. Many times I have paraphrased or interpreted the citation. Please read what the Bible says. If the Bible disagrees with what I have said, then believe the Bible.)
God Loves you.
God has a son. His Name is Jesus.
Jesus loves you.
Jesus came to Earth. He was born as a baby and lived 33 years as a man -- to save people in the world from the results of their sins. John 1:29, 36.
Jesus was a man but he committed no sin.
Sin is doing what God has commanded you not to do. God gave us ten commandments to follow: Exodus Chapter 20.
1. You shall not have any other gods before me.
2. You shall not have any graven image.
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain.
4. You shall remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
5. You shall honor your father and mother.
6. You shall not commit murder.
7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not lie.
9. You shall not steal.
10. You shall not covet.
Nobody was ever able to obey all ten of these commandments -- except Jesus.
Have you ever broken one of these commandments? Have you killed anyone? Have you ever stolen anything? Have yo ever told a lie? Have you ever committed adultery? The penalty for breaking just one of these commandments is Hell.
What is Hell? The Bible give these descriptions:
Hell fire. Matthew 18:8-9. Lake of fire. Revelation 19:20. Unquenchable fire. Matthew 3:12, Luke 3:17. Furnace of fire. Matthew 13:42, 50. Everlasting burning prepared for the devil and his angels. Matthew 25:4. No water to quench the flames. Luke 16:24.
Smoke. Revelation 1:9.
Torment with fire and brimstone (burning sulfur). Revelation 14:10. Torment day and night forever. Revelation 20:10. Weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 8:12, Matthew 13:42. The worm that eats you never dies. Isaiah 66:24, Mark 9:48. Bottomless pit. Revelation 9:1 Amplified. Outer darkness. Matthew 8:12. Everlasting chains of darkness for the angels that sinned. Jude 6,2 KJV. 2 Peter 2:4 KJV. Everlasting destruction from the presence of God. 2 Thessalonians 1:9.
That is Hell. You do not want to go there.
Jesus committed no sin Hebrews 4:15 but instead -- while we were yet sinners Romans 5:8 -- Jesus allowed himself to be taken to the cross and crucified in our place. In your place. In my place. All of our sins were placed on him 1 Peter 2:24 and with his blood he paid the price for our sins. All of them. For all time. Once and for all. Hebrews 10:12. Jesus endured the cross an more so that we can go to heaven.
Before he went to the cross he said: "God, if there is any other way, get me out of this." Matthew 26:38.
But there was no other way.
So for the joy set before him Hebrews 12:2: you and I get to go to heaven and be with Jesus. (To Jesus that is glorious. John 17:9-10). First they tied him to a post and whipped him Matthew 27:26 -- 39 lashes with a Roman 7 tailed whip -- with bits of iron tied to each lash. Each lash tore and gouged his flesh -- and with his stripes we were healed. 1 Peter 2:24. You were healed from every disease.
Is cancer a greater god than Jesus? NO!
Is heart disease a greater god than Jesus? NO!
Is Alzheimer's disease a greater god than Jesus? NO!
Is cystic fibrosis a greater god than Jesus? NO!
Is multiple sclerosis a greater god than Jesus? NO!
Jesus was nailed to a cross. John 19:18. He was raised up for all to see. He shed his blood: by the stripes of the whip Matthew 27:26, by the crown of thorns that was jammed onto his head Matthew 27:29, and by the wound in his side when they jabbed him with a spear. John 19:34. He was buried in a borrowed tomb. Matthew 27:60. IN THREE DAYS HE AROSE. Mark 16:6. After he was raised from the dead he was seen by 500 witnesses. 1 Corinthians 15:6. They wrote about it in the Bible. Many other historians say the same thing.
In those three days he went to hell. He defeated the devil in a fight. He took the keys to hell and death. Revelation 1:17-18. He preached the gospel to all those bound in hell and led them out of hell into heaven -- in an parade before all the assembly of heaven. Ephesians 4:5-9.
Because the blood o Jesus covered you sins and mine, his blood paid the price for our sins. We are forgiven. but we must accept it. We must accept the work that Jesus did.
To do that , say "Jesus save me." Romans 10:13.
There is more, say: "God, in the name of Jesus, forgive me for my sins." Acts 2:38.
One more, say: "Jesus, come into my life. Be Lord of my life. Romans 10:9. Lord means boss. Tell me what to do. Give me courage to do what you tell me. Lord, give me your Holy Spirit to guide and direct me." Acts 2:38.
"Thank you, Jesus."
You are now a Christian.
Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law. Galatians 3:13. The curse is outlined in the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy. It lists many diseases that we are redeemed from. Redeemed means bought back from. We are bought back with his blood. We are bought back from the diseases listed. Tumors are listed. Deuteronomy 28:27. We are redeemed from cancer. Every disease listed and every disease not listed we are redeemed from. Deuteronomy 28:59-61. That covers any disease you can name -- even the one the doctor says is yours.
Are you trying to tell me that the beating that Jesus took was not enough for you? It was enough for every one else. You are not that special. You got healed along with the rest of us. Yo are now a Christian. Accept it! Accept your healing. The word of God is truth. Believe it.
Deuteronomy 30:19 says: Life and death are before you. Therefore you choose. Choose life.
These are some of the things that Jesus did. John 21:25 and 20:30. Jesus did many other things. Read the Bible to get a full flavor of the things that he did.
God Bless You!
