God, who created man in His own image (Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:7), always wanted to have a beautiful, close relationship with us. Because we never would have been able to be so perfect and immaculate to live in God’s perfect and holy presence, God sent Jesus. God is ready to put all our sins on Jesus. And everyone who believes this is perfectly holy, just and immaculate before God (Colossians 1:22).
‘Immanuel’ is a word from Hebrew. It means “God is with us”. Jesus was Immanuel.
How do I know? Well, God in his Word tells us, “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’).” (Matthew 1:23; NIV)
In Jesus, God became in the flesh to offer forgiveness and reconciliation to everyone who believes it.
What about you?
Do you completely reject God? Are you sure that your earthly death is truly the end of your existence? Socialist Hugo Chavez before his death said that he is a Christian and clings to Christ, the Savior, every day.
Did Apple founder Steve Jobs, who was a Buddhist, perhaps turn to Jesus in his dying moments? His last words were: “Oh Wow! Oh Wow! Oh Wow! “- does this sound like nothingness after earthly death?
Or do you think that you are getting into heaven through your own efforts? According to God and Jesus in the Bible, you will not be able to get into heaven just with your good deeds. It is only through and with Jesus. On Him, we cast all our punishment that we deserved, so that we may be free and clean like freshly fallen snow before God. How do you get saved, according to the Bible?
