People have in a way forgotten that Jesus did walk amongst us

This is the problem with most upon this planet at this time. It is not just limited to those that deny the existence of Jesus or God for that matter. It also includes those that call themselves “Christian.” They live their lives as if God and His Son are just a mythology that they choose to exemplify.
This is the furthest thing from the truth though.
An accounting by Senator Tactius who lived from 56 AD to sometime after 117 AD. In his account of the burning of Roman by Nero he states this:
“Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome…..”
Josephus born 37 AD and dies in 100 AD the Jewish historian allied himself with the Romans in approximately 70 AD when the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, made several statements that verify Jesus Christ’s existence. Said this is the least contested of his statements:
“And now Caesar, upon hearing the death of Festus, sent Albinus into Judea, as procurator. But the king deprived Joseph of the high priesthood, and bestowed the succession to that dignity on the son of Ananus, who was also himself called Ananus. Now the report goes that this eldest Ananus proved a most fortunate man; for he had five sons who had all performed the office of a high priest to God, and who had himself enjoyed that dignity a long time formerly, which had never happened to any other of our high priests. But this younger Ananus, who, as we have told you already, took the high priesthood, was a bold man in his temper, and very insolent; he was also of the sect of the Sadducees, who are very rigid in judging offenders, above all the rest of the Jews, as we have already observed; when, therefore, Ananus was of this disposition, he thought he had now a proper opportunity. Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned: but as for those who seemed the most equitable of the citizens, and such as were the most uneasy at the breach of the laws, they disliked what was done; they also sent to the king, desiring him to send to Ananus that he should act so no more, for that what he had already done was not to be justified; nay, some of them went also to meet Albinus, as he was upon his journey from Alexandria, and informed him that it was not lawful for Ananus to assemble a sanhedrin without his consent. Whereupon Albinus complied with what they said, and wrote in anger to Ananus, and threatened that he would bring him to punishment for what he had done; on which king Agrippa took the high priesthood from him, when he had ruled but three months, and made Jesus, the son of Damneus, high priest.”
In what is called the “testimony of Flavius Josephus,” which is doubted by those that wish to deny Jesus is real said this:
“About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who performed surprising deeds and was a teacher of such people as accept the truth gladly. He won over many Jews and many of the Greeks. He was the Christ. And when, upon the accusation of the principal men among us, Pilate had condemned him to a cross, those who had first come to love him did not cease. He appeared to them spending a third day restored to life, for the prophets of God had foretold these things and a thousand other marvels about him. And the tribe of the Christians, so called after him, has still to this day not disappeared.”
Josephus also said this about John the Baptist:
“Now some of the Jews thought that the destruction of Herod’s army came from God, and that very justly, as a punishment of what he did against John, that was called the Baptist: for Herod slew him, who was a good man… Herod, who feared lest the great influence John had over the people might put it into his power and inclination to raise a rebellion… Accordingly he was sent a prisoner, out of Herod’s suspicious temper, to Macherus, the castle I before mentioned, and was there put to death.”
All of this points to the reality of Jesus Christ. Yet many that call themselves “Christian” have no concept or even truly know the teaching within the Bible. Why is this? Because He is not seen in person, nor heard in person, so not truly real to them. This makes Him a myth. A fairytale and this is what many wish Jesus to be.
This is why you have false teachers making millions and teaching them to nothing but selfishness and greed. Causing millions to think only of themselves and their own wants and desires. This is totally opposite the teachings of the Bible.
Too many count on others to tell them what the Bible says for they are “too busy” to read the Bible themselves. How can people count on others for their own personal standing with the Creator of the universe is something that is still mindboggling to me.
Jesus walked upon this earth in human form. Why? To die for your sin and mine. Jesus rose from the dead three days later and was seen walking amongst humanity for forty days. He was seen by the surviving disciples. He was seen by over five hundred people and their families all at one time during this time before He ascended into heaven.
During this time Jesus said this unto to Thomas:
John 20:29 – Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
Soon Events will take place that will cause there to be those that will be less blessed than those that now live and belief. There will be those that will have to do more works due to His presences being reaffirmed with all creation. Their faith will be like that of Thomas. They will believe for they have seen Jesus or seen His actions upon this planet that being what is called the Rapture. As is reaffirmed in to letters to the churches in Revelation:
Revelation 3:10-11 – “Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.”
Deny He is real by placing yourself at the core of your life and you have allowed others to “seize your crown,” and you will not be spared from the “trial that is coming on the whole world.”
