Jesus Christ was the light that came to earth to brighten the lives of the people. He taught phenomenal and meaningful lessons that changed many hearts and caused people to accept Jesus as their Lord. Jesus Christ is the life of Christianity; the Word of God in flesh. His life, his ministry, and his crucifixion where prophesied long before he was born and Christians believe that they were all fulfilled. He had so much love for human kind that he came to earth to die for the sins of the people, so that their souls would be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bible testifies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who taught memorable life lessons and performed astonishing miracles during his ministry.
Isaiah 9:1-7 prophesies the coming of Jesus Christ and all his fulfillments. Isaiah, the author of this book, mentions how Jesus will be the light in the lives of the people who have been going through a hard time (New International Version, Isaiah 9.2). That is a very hopeful verse because the people of Israel encountered oppression and frauds daily. Therefore, the Messiah’s coming was desperately awaited. Isaiah preaches that the Messiah will “enlarge the nation” (New International Version, Isaiah 9.3), and Jesus definitely expanded the circle of Christians. So many people were astonished by Jesus’ teachings that they started following him blindly. Isaiah also prophesied that Jesus would be known as a “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace” (New International Version, Isaiah 9.6). Every Christian will testify that Jesus Christ lived up to his name. God says that Jesus is the chosen one who will create order in Israel without using violence like other rule...

... the townspeople found out about Jesus’ action, they forced him to leave the town and he left. However, the healed man told everyone about the miracle and everyone was amazed (New International Version, Mark.5.1-20). Jesus also raised a dead girl and healed a sick woman (New International Version, Mark.5.21-43). He performed all these miracles out of love and compassion and that displays that Jesus is a lovely person who does everything out of good intentions.
The Messiah came to the world and taught countless lessons to everyone who was willing to listen. He taught the people the importance of remembering the Lord and loving one another in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. His ministry emphasized his abundant love for the nations and it is his love, teaching, miracles, and fulfilled prophecies that caused millions of people to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord.

- The United Nations Agenda 2030 is emerging as the slam dunk, in yo face blueprint for global government. Noble and lofty goals provide much mind boggling substantiated dialogue. Attempting to rid the world of poverty, and other noble feats by redistributing the wealth of the developed nations and their wage earners - which in turn, turns out to be not so noble of a feat. The U.N. is attempting to create a world where human habitats are safe, resilient and sustainable, as well as making cities safe.... [tags: United Nations, United States, Jesus]

- 21- The pericope begins with making the reader aware that the ministry of Jesus has now shifted from Jewish territory, and guides its readers to begin to focus on a new Gentile territory of Tyre and Sidon, which is important to note, belonging to Gentile territory. The NIV translation uses the word “withdraws,” to describe the manner in which Jesus leaves Jewish country, to retreat to Tyre and Sidon. It is interesting that R.T. France notes that the word used in the instance means that Jesus was retreating to “get away from Jewish opposition and Jewish crowds.” In reading it through France’s lens, Jesus is retreating for a means of vacation away from all the hassle, opposition and frustrati...

The On Jesus Christ And What Has Been Accomplished Through The Sacrificial Act Of Giving Of His Life
- Doctrinal Constructs of Hope The constructs and the doctrinal thoughts of hope are completely centered on focusing on Jesus Christ and what has been accomplished through the sacrificial act of giving of His life as a ransom for individuals. Hope is realized and distributed through the promises of the Holy Scriptures. Research illustrates through a multitude of scholars, writers and plethora of varied resources that hope comes from Christ and is grace, in overcoming conflicts, trial and circumstance....

In his book, Moltmann, blends Judaism and Christianity together to form what is called messianic Jewish faith. Messianic Judaism is a religious movement that adds to Evangelical Christian theology with elements of Jewish terminology and ritual. He connects the Old Testament with the New Testament and believes there must be a connection between the messianic and the Christian perspective of Christology....

- Through my studies and research I have come to the following conclusion about the League of Nations: despite all of President Woodrow Wilson's efforts, the League was doomed to fail. I feel this was so for many reasons, some of which I hope to convey in the following report. From the day when Congress voted on the Fourteen Points, it was obvious that the League had a very slim chance of being passed in Congress, and without all of the World powers, the League had little chance of surviving....

- While both the Gospel of Matthew and John tell of the global reordering plan for the world, each does so in a unique way. The Gospel of Matthew is able to show the reordering of the world by focusing on the aspect of Jesus as a teacher and the results of this; while the Gospel of John shows the reordering occurring as God works through Jesus showing signs to the people of who he is, focusing on the belief this brings to people. “But all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God” (John 1:12)....

- Zechariah 7:9-10, “Execute true justice, show kindness and mercy to each other. And do not oppress the widow or orphan, the sojourner or poor. And do not plot evil against each other, says the Lord.” This is true justice. God calls us on this earth to love, care, show kindness and mercy to one another. As i saw on a picture with a little boy holding up a sign saying “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then the world will know peace.” It is impossible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people....

- As a Christian, one of the things we are called to do is to evangelize the lost. Our famous calling is found in Matthew 28: 18-20, where Christ tells his apostles to go and make disciples of all nations. This is a command, not a suggestion. Jesus tells us that it is our job to go out into the world and bring people to know Him. This is not something to take lightly. When we obey this command and we tell people about our faith and about who Jesus is and what He has done for us, then we will get the crucial question that we must be able to answer....

- Each and every believer has been called to spread the gospel. On the day we confessed our faith we were ushered into accountability for this very purpose. We received a commanded to make it one of our top five duties unto the Lord we serve. That responsibility was to share what was good and perfect in our lives. There are no options to not do the work, nor does the work require gifts which are not already present in the believer. Nevertheless, I believe that many shy away from the opportunity because they have been calibrated to believe that some obligations, especially this one, are only earmarked for the clergy....
