Jesus as Messiah Advertisement

January 07, 1986

Although I'm not a member of Jews for Jesus, I'm a born-again (Christian) Jew. Jesus was God incarnate, and that is the whole basis of true Christianity. There are more than 300 references to Jesus in the Old Testament, and in the Book of Daniel, the advent of Jesus' ministry is predicted to the day, more than 400 years before it began.

I was once very cynical about all religion. But when I sought God with all my heart, and finally said the prayer, "Jesus, I repent and give my life to you," a spiritual miracle happened to me as it has to millions of others.

The world at large will never understand this, but man is a fallen creature, and his pride keeps him from humbling himself and finding the truth. Our logic is so skewed by spiritual blindness that we can't see the truth--that Jesus was God become man to suffer for our iniquities.

I am praying for the writer of that letter (Jesus as Messiah) so that he will see the truth. There is an answer to life, and Y'SHUA is the answer.

May God bless all mankind this new year.
