God has spoken!
Have you ever heard something that you could not believe because you thought it was too good to be true? Would you be as hard to convince as these people who were gathered together to mourn the death of their great Friend, Jesus. They had heard from different people that Jesus was alive again, "but they did not believe them"!
Suddenly "Jesus Himself stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.' They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, ‘Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at My hands and My feet. It is I Myself! Touch Me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.'
"And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, He asked them, ‘Do you have anything here to eat?' They gave Him a piece of broiled fish, and He took it and ate it."
How was Jesus going to convince them He really was their Friend back from the dead?
He would get them to remember His words to them before all this happened, and also the prophecies of the Scriptures.
He said, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about Me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
Was Jesus not taking a very big risk by saying that "everything" written about Him in the Bible hundreds of years earlier would come true? If there was one mistake in what was written, or if Jesus missed out in fulfilling one detail of all that was said; then Jesus would be proved false!
But Jesus knew that "all Scripture is God-breathed". God has spoken the Bible message! It "never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit."
It is never a risk to put your trust in the Word of God - the Holy Bible!
But make sure that what you believe is in the Bible. For example, many believe that God will forgive everyone, and will turn no-one into Hell. But God has warned in His Word that manywill be turned into Hell!
Jesus reminded those unbelieving disciples about some of the things that had been written: "The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations ..."
Because Jesus died for us and rose again, just as the Bible had said, He alone is able to save you and bring you to God.
Only by "repentance" and faith
can you be saved from Hell.
Will YOU turn away from your sin and from all other hopes of forgiveness and, in faith, call on Jesus, to forgive and save you NOW. You will not have the peace He offers until you do!
Read in Luke chapter 24, verses 36-47about those disciples who were so hard to convince. Don't you hesitate to believe that Jesus died and rose again to be YOUR Saviour.
