of this amazing past history of Jesus is true, what does
it mean? What good is it to me today?
In the same text of the Bible where we read the story of
His life on Earth, we also find many specific, definite
claims that Jesus made regarding Himself.--Claims that
you can take at face value and put to the test right now.
Here are a few examples in Jesus' Own Words:
"I am the Light of the World. He that follows Me
shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of
life."--John 8:12. All of us have had the experience
of being caught in the dark before and wishing we had a
light so we could see, so we could make our way safely
past any dangers, avoid any falls etc. Well, spiritually
speaking, when we do not know God and are out of
fellowship with Him, we are in spiritual darkness.
Would you like to get rid of all the darkness in your
life? Just like turning a light on immediately chases all
of the darkness out of a blackened room, so Jesus will
chase all of the spiritual darkness, oppression, fear and
evil out of your life if you will just ask Him to come
into your heart! Once you have received the "Light
of the World"--Jesus--into your heart, all of the
powers of evil and the dark experiences of life will
never be able to quench it!
"All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in
The Devil and all of his evil spirits tremble at even the
name of Jesus! All you need to do is ask Jesus to come
into your heart, then you've got the greatest, most
powerful spiritual Force of all with you.--He is your
Friend, He loves you and wants to help you and fill your
soul with His Light!
"I am the Door, by Me, if any man enter in, he shall
be saved."--John 10:9.
He is not a closed or locked door that you must try to
force open or work hard to enter.--He's an open door! All
you have to do is walk through Him and thereby freely
enter God's Heavenly Kingdom of Love and Light! If you
come to Jesus, He will give you His free gift of Eternal
Life, and you will know that you belong to Him and are
going to Heaven! There are millions of people alive today
who can testify with certainty that this claim of His is
"I am the Bread of Life, He that comes to Me shall
never hunger, and he that believes on Me shall never
Deep in their hearts, most people know that something is
missing in their lives. Outwardly they may seem to have
everything--money, position, friends etc., all the things
that are supposed to make them happy--yet they still have
an emptiness, a hunger that nothing really satisfies.
Jesus said that He is the Bread of Life Who would
completely fulfil our heart's "hunger and
thirst." You can find out if this claim is true by
simply asking Him to come into your life. See how quickly
His Love can satisfy your hungry heart!--The loneliness,
emptiness and dissatisfaction you may have experienced
will be replaced with lasting happiness, peace and joy
such as you have never known before!
"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.--No man comes
unto the Father except by Me."--John 14:6.
This is an extraordinary claim, and is in fact the heart
and soul of the writings of the New Testament.--That
Jesus alone is the way to Eternal Life, Salvation and
union with God.
