If you are like most people you have many questions you would like to have answers for –
questions like "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" "What's going to happen in the future?"
"What's the meaning of life?"
There was a time when I had the same questions and would think: "There was an empty, dissatisfied feeling inside me. I knew my life wouldn't really begin until I found the truth. I tried most things this world had to offer to find satisfaction and almost destroyed myself in the process. I searched in religions, philosophies and just about everything under the sun but nothing helped. I was brought up in a Jewish family and although we had religion and tradition it didn't satisfy the cry of my heart for the truth.
One day as I was reading the Scriptures, all of a sudden the room I was in was filled with the presence of God and I received a revelation. I saw that my whole life I had been going away from God. I saw that every problem that exists in the world, from the smallest personal problem to the largest political crisis is because of the sin of humanity. Not only our sinful actions but our state of being separated from God. (Ecclesiastics 7:20; Isaiah 59:1,2) I thought if sin is separating me from God, how can my sin be removed? When I read the prophet Isaiah, I saw there was a solution. I understood who the prophet was talking about when He said:
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
... for He was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people ...
Then I read in verse 10:
He will see His offspring, He will
prolong His days,
This one of whom the prophet spoke not only became sin-bearer and thus suffered death, but also prolonged His days and saw His offspring; in other words, He rose again from the dead. I realized that there was only one person who could have fulfilled these words of Isaiah the prophet.
His name is Yeshua the Messiah. When I received Yeshua as my Lord and Savior a new life began for me. He washed away my sin and guilt. He gave me a deep inner peace with meaning and purpose in life. I know He will do the same for you.
Listen to what the prophet Jeremiah has to say:
The time is coming declares the Lord,
when I will make a new covenant
God has made a New Covenant. He does not want to punish us for our sins but wants to forgive us. God does not want religion -- an impersonal obedience to a set of rules. He wants a heart relationship with those whom He created -- a relationship of love
...I have loved you with everlasting love;
therefore I have drawn you with loving-kindness. Jeremiah 31:2
...For I know the thoughts that I have
for you, declares the Lord,
But now thus says the Lord your creator,
O Jacob, and He who has formed you,
Sin leads to spiritual death which is separation from God forever.
(Ezekiel 18:4; Daniel 12:2)
The alternative is to personally receive God's free gift, which is forgiveness for sin and everlasting life.
You can invite Yeshua the Messiah into your life right now by praying to God:
God, I know I'm a sinner and need forgiveness.
I ask you to forgive me for my sins.
Yeshua, I open the door of my life for you and receive you as my Lord and Savior.
Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be delivered. Joel 3:5
This is just the beginning of a new life for you. Find others who have also found new life in the Messiah with whom you can share your experiences and grow together in faith.
I have set my King upon Zion, my holy
hill, I will tell of the decree:
Thou art my son; this day I have begotten
(Yeshua = Salvation = Jesus)
