Many people are seeking for eternal youth. They try various beauty products, fitness regimes, healthy eating plans and therapy but never quite reach their goal.
The promise of eternal youth is an illusion which creates a lot of business opportunities; makes a lot of people feel better about themselves but never quite delivers what it promises. It's what we all want but can't really have.
Please stop for a moment! I have good news for you. You cannot have eternal youth BUT YOU CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!
This is not a scam! It's true! There are no catches! It's the real deal! So listen carefully!
2016 years ago a series of amazing events took place! These events changed world history and are still revolutionising people's lives. I'm talking about the birth of Jesus Christ and 33 years later his death and subsequent resurrection. Nearly 4,000 years before his birth a prediction had been made (in the Bible, Genesis 3:15) that a man would born of a woman without a man being involved in the conception. Christians call this 'the virgin birth'; it might actually be more accurate to call it a 'virgin conception'.
Furthermore, the way that Jesus would died was was not unexpected and was predicted precisely. The mode of his death was not a normal form of capital punishment at the time the predictions were made. In Psalm 22:16, written 1,000 years before the time of Christ, it stated 'they pierced my hands and my feet'. This is an overt reference to death by crucifixion. You may argue that Psalm 22 was written after the event - try telling that to a Jewish Rabbi!
You may argue that people manipulated events to fulfil scripture. I think an honest look at the circumstances surrounding the death of Jesus clearly makes that suggestion improbable. But the story gets more intriguing - three days after his crucifixion it was reported that his tomb was empty and that he was seen alive. Finally it is reported that Jesus returned to heaven 40 days after his resurrection.
Books have been written by a variety of intelligent and legal minds checking out these claims. Here are some authors you might want to check out. Frank Morison, Lawyer, Journalist & Author (his real name was Albert Henry Ross but he wrote under a pseudonym), Professor Simon Greenleaf, American lawyer & Harvard Royal Professor of Law, Josh McDowell, Lawyer and Lee Strobel, Lawyer and Journalist to name a few.
The evidence that there is more to this than meets the eye goes on and on? Ignoring it won't change the truth but it will leave you exposed to the fact that God intervened in history, that he sent a message and you refused to listen.
I see a simple summary of the life of Christ in the words of scripture "the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world," 1 John 4:14.
