he only faked his death to get out of debt. There have been reports that he has been seen alive in the Caribbean and South America.
Elvis Presley, dubbed “The King” by his fans, died on August 16, 1977. Yet even today, people claim to have seen him alive in all sorts of places. Few take these stories seriously but they appeal to us because Elvis’ records meant something special to many people.
How could two people so full of life possibly be dead?
At this time of the year, millions are celebrating because a man who was dead has been seen alive – not by a handful of strangers, who saw someone somewhere who looked a bit like Him, but by His closest friends, His family, and His followers. 1 Corinthians 15:6 states, “…He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present…” This was not the delusion of wishful thinking. They had all seen Him and you could go and ask them!
I am talking about Jesus, whose following came from something much more important than music. He had promised to make men and women right with God, so that they could live lives to the full and have their sins forgiven. His followers, however, had watched in horror as He was executed in the most agonising way by crucifixion. They had seen His body sealed in the tomb. They were not expecting to see Him again.
Yet, three days later, he astonished everyone by appearing in Jerusalem, eating and drinking with His friends, teaching his disciples and touching lives once more. When He died, He was taking the punishment we deserved for all our sin and selfishness – for the wrong things we have said, thought and done. God showed that He accepted this wonderful sacrifice by bringing Him back from the dead.
There are things that you can’t forgive yourself for, but because Jesus died for you, God can. Trust today “that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” and you will be saved and, like millions of others, you can come to know the risen Lord Jesus Christ for yourself.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me the following simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith! God Bless You!
