So then one day, in the fullness of time, there came a Man, and this Man began to teach a new kind of life: life with God, life in God`s kingdom, life under God`s reign, in God`s presence, life with God`s favor and God`s power. And He taught that this life was now possible for human beings ordinary human beings men, women, slave, free, rich, poor, Jew, Gentile. His name was Jesus.

He said that He is the "Kingdom Bringer." All the hopes of the human race are wrapped up in Him. He is the climax of this whole redemptive history. In fact, one time He was teaching, and He said to the people,

  • Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day, because the Kingdom of God is here. Abraham saw it and was glad. ''John 8:56''

    The crowd is amazed and staggered by this statement, and they respond to Jesus,

  • You are not even fifty years old, yet you claim to have seen Abraham. ''John 8:57''

    Then comes one of the most dramatic statements in history:

  • I tell you the truth. Before Abraham was born I AM. ''John 8:58''

    This is like a slap on the face. He doesn`t say,
    Before Abraham was born I was,
    I already existed,
    I was around.

    He says, Before Abraham was born I AM. Why does He speak that phrase? Well everyone is real clear about what He is saying:

  • God has come down in me. God has come down. Get your hopes up.

    After this, we`re told in the text that the crowd picked up stones. They were ready to kill him and, because of this claim, eventually they did. But a group of people, a small group at first, was convinced that this man in His life and His teachings and then in His death on the Cross, in His Resurrection and the empty tomb this man was redefining what is now possible for human life. They believed that He really is the Kingdom-Bringer that He came to "bring up there down here" that Jesus is It. He`s It everything you`ve been hoping for. They wrote in their letters to one another and in their records of His life, which became the New Testament Scriptures, promises and descriptions of what life can look like for people who follow Jesus.

    Mark 2:10
    He had not only the ability to save sinners but also the authority to forgive their sins. In this incident, although He as God forgave people's sins, He asserted that He was the Son of Man. This indicates that He was the true God and a real man, possessing deity and humanity. In Him men could see both His divine attributes and His human virtues.

    what happens to all the people who were born before Jesus existed- do they all go to hell?Asking about John 14:6 and what of people who never had the opportunity due to communication, distance and culture and never heard of Jesus- are they also condemned to hell?

    John 10:30
    Jesus now plainly told them that He was one with the Father. This was no different from His earlier revelations to these men: "My Father is working right now, and so am I. His reply made the Jews more intent on killing him. Not only did he break the laws about the day of worship, but also he made himself equal to God when he said repeatedly that God was his Father" (John 5: 17-18). They had demanded that Jesus tell them plainly if He was the Christ. Now, Jesus had done exactly that. His words were more offensive than His works: "My Father has turned everything over to me. Only the Father knows the Son. And no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son is willing to reveal him" (Matthew 11:27).

    YES JESUS is the way the truth and the life and with out HIM we can not make it into the KINGDOM.  We have to believe that JESUS did DIE ON THE CROSS that GOD did send HIS only SON down here for us for our sins.  In order to see the FATHER we have to believe in the SON put our trust in HIM having faith the size of a mustard seed.

    I strongly beleive that he is one with the father.

    God said, let us create man in our own image. The bible says that we are sons of God and if sons, then heirs to the Kingdom. Being a son means you have the attributes of your father and so you can fully represent your father.

    Jesus has all the attributes of God. God, the Father also added extra powers to him like the power to sit on the throne and judge, the power that makes every knee to bow etc. These powers make him same as his father, God.

    yeah! here is my story

    yeah! here is my story

    Revelation 1: 19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

    one day,at 10AM 10.10,2008
    blue skies but the sun isn't coming out no
    today it's like i'm under a heavy cloud
    I came to the balcony,and look around.
    I saw the cloud looks like a Dragon,(in China,Dragon Means that the Creator as GOD,Unlike the one in the bible)
    at that time,first of all,I thought it was Only similarity,Just a moment,It began to move,yeah,I mean the Dragon began to move as I was watching Hollywood Pictures,I still do not believe my eyes.
    I thought it was my Illusion,so I use the phone's camera function to show it is not an illusion,I just do it.
    then the Dragon joked with me about that matter,when I was taking photos,the Dragon looks like dead and The color turns red(I never saw cloud's color is red befor),Then disappear,Just as I fired it.I was scared,I thought:"I killed him!!",Revelation1:18
    I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    John 5

    5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
    6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
    7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    But the photo are real just as what I saw.
    I still look around sky,catch the sight of longan that is so big,the eye is the sun,Revelation
    1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
    1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

    other is the cloud.he or the longan looked at me.I have the feeling he thought:"look at sb. with new eyes".
    as I was watching Hollywood Pictures on/in the sky,he show me a lot of pics(In the form of clouds),From what to what,Pyramid,Sphinx,Ancient soldiers or Athena or holy warriors or Bronze Saints(I'm not sure),


    Genghis Khan(The time the Bible was introduced into China),
    in our History,Think of themselves as son of Dragon or son of sky's nation who is Genghis Khan's near in blood or immediate family or Kin.and these nations time later than Genghis Khan's time

    I quote The historical evidence.means god know everything about us.

    a hand looks like Chinese Ancient Firearms(I have the pic,but no others,cuz I thought nobody will blieve,and if I show these pics to public I don't know what will happen),Just as I was fascinated by looking,Days opened(or cloud opened{i'm under a heavy cloud})
    I saw a big cross,then Jesus appears in front of cross
    (just as Brazilian statue,but no face,cuz the face is sky),I can see a lot of angle on his left one by one appears,i just wanna scream and lose control.

    Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
    Matthew 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

    Luke 21:
    26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
    27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
    Luke 21:27 New American Standard Bible (© 1995)
    "Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory

    in the end,I saw a Naked expectant mother,she was a girl at the first time,then became of expectant mother,very very Beautiful,hard to tell,indescribable.(I thought he want to tell me that he is Life,just as the bible)

    REV 22:17
    The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

    do u blieve my story? do you believe in everything the says???

    I dont know why god show himself as Dragon to me(I know no other god,no other idolatry,iconolatry),but show himself as Dragon to me,and show Jesus later.maybe for Different Culture or some reson,so I need to tell and Explained to other people what's Dragon means in china,

    I need to tell u some Knowledge about china,for us Dragon(means god for that time,now Dragon for us means Spirit or spiritual essence) is On behalf of the Emperor,our Emperor think they are son of god or sky{son of sky"tianzi"}(but same means)just as the Rome's Caesar who thought he is son of god,but not,at The World of Jesus or Jesus Time,that's means Jesus and god is the king.as he said he is the jewish king(and everyone's).

    I know u are a bit confusing my story about the Dragon part,I know in bible,Dragon is Beast and stand for Satan,but in bible the Dragon is 7 heads and 10 horns,for us our Dragon is symbol,not idol,we never Worship for our Dragon.maybe Dragon is Jehovah's Avatar as Jehovah show himself to Jews as Pillar of a cloud in Bible. dont make me wrong.hehe

    and what's the story means for others(from Different Culture or point of view).but I never heard any voice at that time,diferent with the bible case,Prophet Always heard GOD's voice.

    I am not very smart,what's the hint or Revelation? maybe tell me he(Jesus Christ) will return or Back?

    Our Father in heaven,
    Hallowed be your name.
    Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    As we forgive our debtors.
    And do not lead us into temptation,
    But deliver us from the evil one.
    For Yours is the kingdom and the power and
    the glory forever.
