HERE ARE JUST 12 POINTS THAT ARE EXTRA ORDINARY
Either what JESUS said was false, and you can dismiss the information, OR, if he was telling the truth, there IS a HEAVEN or Hell waiting for us. God LOVED US all so much, Jesus suffered the eternal fire for us...
1. The Bible is Divinely inspired. It touches on an astounding remarkable amount evidence of History ,Science, Mathematics AND Medicine in detail. It also has embedded Numeral Mathematics within the words, as well as THOUSANDS of Bible codes threaded within and throughout the BIBLE. (www.exodus2006.com) (The Bible Codes and Mathematics only work in the original word of the Bible, not the modern translations) How can you possibly write a book (of 40 authors) that reads on the surface fluently, and has THOUSANDS of Modern Bible Codes, AND on top of that have Multiple places of Mathematics present?
2. Jesus had to be born through a particular family line as it was prophesied in the Old Testament. Jesus would have NO CONTROL over that. They have calculated the odds of that actually happening - 10 To the 2nd Power (1 in 10,000) Jesus would be a Descendant of David
3.Prophecy tells US GOD Picked the City of Bethlehem for The Messiah to be Born in. Jesus would have No CONTROL over this. They calculated the odds of this - 10 to 5th Power (1 Chance in 100,000) Jesus would be born in Bethlehem
4.The Lord God is incredibly consistent. If you want to know if something is of God, look back into the Old testament, as he doesn't change. In fact, God provides evidence for himself that no one could possibly generate. For hundreds of years before Christ, God set up 5 exciting celebrations in Lev 23 and gave his believers specific details how about to keep them. Amazingly, in the details lied the prophecies or foreshadows of events that would occur in the future. The celebration Passover is the exact representation of Jesus dying on the cross in detail even to the exact time of the slaughtering of the lamb, and the blood on the doorposts. Feast of Tabernacles was the perfect picture of Jesus's birth detailing the location and time. Many speculate that Feast of Trumpets will be where Jesus returns on the Mount of Olives. We are also told that we will be keeping the festivals when Jesus returns (Exe 45, Zech 14). Also, the disciples kept Sabbath and the festivals in Acts 21&25 Matt 5,Rom 3. If you are a Christian, I urge you to throw aside pagan holidays, XMAS, Halloween, and walk the narrow road for Jesus. Keeping the Festivals/Sabbath and Jesus Testimony is where the blessings and protection come from.
5. An astonishing 668 prophecies have been fulfilled and none have ever been proven false . An honest study of biblical prophecy will compellingly show the divine authorship of the Bible. Jesus fulfilled over 300 messianic prophecies written in the Old Testament scriptures. Prophecies today are coming to pass around the world that have been written in the Old Testament 2500 years ago. Isn't that amazing?
6. There are 2,000 prophecies that discuss past events which have come to pass (proven correct), future prophecies and 300 prophecies (ALL proven correct and detailed) on the implications about the life, INCLUDING the death, and resurrection of Jesus. No other religion has specific, repeated, and unfailing fulfillment of predictions many years in advance of contingent events over which the predictor had no control.
Buddha didn't rise from the dead, nor did Confucius or Zoroaster. Muhammad or Maitreya didn't fulfill detailed prophecy. Alexander the Great, nor did Joseph Smith raise the dead or heal the sick. There is far less reliable information written about these "religious" leaders, yet they are followed by millions.
7. The Messiah would have had 456 identifying characteristics; Jesus had them all.
8.Professor Emeritus of Science at Westmont College, Peter Stoner, has calculated the probability of one man fulfilling the major prophecies made concerning the Messiah. Twelve different classes representing some 600-university students worked out the estimates. 1 in (10 to the 157POWER) that one man could fulfill even 48 (F O U R T Y - e i g h t ) of these Old Testament prophecies.
JUST REMEMBER THAT JESUS FULLFILLED OVER 300! Finally, he submitted his figures for review to a committee of the American Scientific Affiliation. Upon examination, they verified that his calculations were dependable and accurate in regard to the scientific material presented (Peter Stoner, Science Speaks, Chicago: Moody Press, 1969, 4).
9. Jesus DID NOT manipulate events to fulfill prophecy Such as The Place of the Messiah’s birth (Micah 5:2). , The Date of the Messiah’s birth (Daniel 9:25). Manner of birth of the Messiah (Isaiah 7:14), The Manner of death of the Messiah (Zechariah 12:10; Psalm 22:16 prophesied before the invention of crucifixion). , Piercing in side of that Messiah (Zechariah 12:10).The Details of the Burial of the Messiah(Isaiah 53:9).Executers dividing up Jesus’ clothes after he died on the cross
10. MILLIONS of Muslims are seeing dreams of JESUS and ARE Converting to Christianity in areas of world where it is a death sentence to convert to Christianity. YET, MILLIONS are having the same dream of who they identify as Jesus coming to them in their dream. Millions have converted even though, it could cost them their life.
11. AN EARTHQUAKE and an Eclipse Happened while Jesus was dying on the cross...
Sited by MANY NON Biblical Sources (13 in total) It did HAPPEN! The darkness was noted all around the world! It happened from 12 noon to 3 pm when Jesus died. THIS TELLS YOU, GOD the FATHER DID NOT WANT it to GO UNNOTICED! He is the Son of God, and can forgive your sins.
12. The Holy Temple Had A Curtain Separating the Holy Place where GOD dwelled. At the Very moment of Jesus's Death the Curtain was torn in half. The Remarkable thing, CHECK out the measurements of this Curtain- The curtain was 60 feet in height, 30 feet in width and 4 inches thick

Unlike any other Religion, Jesus Christ claimed to be God (John 10:30 ) “I and the Father are one.” Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. You will notice that None of them ever claimed to be equal to God, but Jesus did. In the name of Jesus you can have eternal life if you call on him. Jesus claimed he can forgive sin himself. Today ONLY in name of “JESUS” can people be freed of Demonic activity in persons. This is a huge piece of evidence for Christ, it takes but minutes for a person to be freed in Jesus name. The Name of “Jesus” binds up demons, and casts them out. In the Name of Jesus, thousands of people can testify to healing.
There is only one God (Exodus 20:3; Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8) Jesus is a part of a trinity. Just like the mathematical model of Liquid Water-Water vapor-Ice water, all revealed in different forms.
God revealed himself in Exodus (the old testament before Jesus was born) to Moses through a Burning bush Exodus 3:14 - "And God said to Moses, 'I AM WHO I AM'; and He said, Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’" THEN when Jesus walked the earth, he claimed to his disciples in John 8:58#- " 'Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM.'"
Jesus claimed to be there from the beginning of the creation of the universe John 1:1 - "In the beginning was the Word(Jesus) , and the Word(Jesus) was with God, and the Word(Jesus) was God." John 1:14 - "And the Word(Jesus) became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth."
The Disciples of Jesus were asking JESUS about what the Father was like, - Jesus in John 14: 6-7 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."
Jesus Christ says in Matthew 25:41, "Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels."
There are over 162 references in the New Testament, alone which warns of hell. And over 70 of these references were uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ! Understand This: - You choose hell when you reject Jesus Christ, when you refuse God's love gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ you choose an eternity without his presence. Everything that is good comes from God. Hell is a place without his presence, but a place where all things bad occur. Do a search of Psalms to learn what a loving Father our God is. Everything good is from him.
All other major world religions, like Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Catholics teach that we must perfect ourselves in order to be saved. All Other religions believe that if people live good lives, and if the good works they do outweigh the bad, then they will have earned their way to heaven. However, this approach has logical errors. For example, if we prepared an omelet with five good eggs and one rotten egg, we do not get an omelet with four good eggs, but get a rotten omelet. Just like this, we cannot mix good deeds and bad deeds, and hope that we will be good enough to enter into the heaven.
The Bible says that we are all sinners (Rom. 3:23, Romans 3:13). This means that WE HAVE all offended God. Because of this, we are separated from God (Isaiah 59:2), are dead in our sins (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:3), cannot please God (Rom. 3:10-11), and will suffer damnation (2 Thess. 1:9).
Therefore, God himself -Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and rose from the grave to save us (Isa. 53:6). Only the saving faith in Jesus Christ can be the basis for forgiveness of sin and life everlasting (Ac. 16:31) Here is the KEY, all you have to do is ask him into your life. God makes it very easy to choose him.
Salvation is found by trusting in what Jesus did on the cross (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Pet. 2:24, John 1:12, Acts 16:30,31,
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16)
Are you ready to gamble with the consequences of all the amazing evidence stacked up in Jesus’s favor? There is tons more amazing evidence that confirms that Christianity is the truth. No other religion has the evidence that Christianity does.
Here is your saving Prayer. Don’t put off eternity another day. Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask you into my life. I thank you for dying for me and saving me from Hell. I pray that you would open my eyes to see, and I pray you the Lord over my life. Please direct my paths. I receive you as my Savior. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
"Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth." Luke 15:10
