Can I pray for you?

It's good to hear from you. The last time I heard from you, you were talking about evidence of my gods, well, I do have evidence, but I have only one God, His name is Jesus. I have alot of proof and my cousins proof is below. I don't have much time right now, but if you're interested I can give you the proof that I have.

I have found that Jesus can be found using the scientic method.

Here's my findings: I was looking for "proof" of God's existence 3 1/2 years ago. When I opened the Bible, I knew I could not believe a word that was written, so I challenged the scriptures that I could prove. Acts 4:12 says, "Neither is there salvation in any other for there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved."

I went to the library and checked history and cult books. It was true! In all the years of history there has never been another name whereby you must be saved.

Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for." I had to admit that this verse was true. I was hoping that I could believe in a God who loves me. As I read the scripture, my faith began to grow (Romans 10:17), and one night I confessed all my sins to God (1 John 1:9)...I was awakened out of a deep sleep about 2 a.m. with intense chest pain.

Being a nurse, I immediately suspected that I was having a heart attack, but when I opened my eyes, I say two "human" faces standing over me with intensely evil expressions. The whole room seemed to be filled with evil. I was so astonished I did not know what to say. Then these words came out of my mouth, "Quick Jesus, fill me with your Holy Spirit because 'greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).'"

As soon as those words came out of my mouth the pressure lifted, those horrible faces were gone and Jesus filled me with the most wonderful, loving peace that I cannot describe (Matthew 12:28).

So now, I personally have proof that Jesus is real and that He is who He says He is. I have experienced Him for myself, and I have told many others about what I've seen and experienced, and they have experienced Jesus for themselves, thus proving that this was not a "one time" phenomenon.

Fredric, God loves you and all of mankind. He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete. He offers you not only an abundant life here and now, but a life which is eterna. - His very own life. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 The saying,"Well, we are just human-nobody is perfect," is biblically sound. When we acknowledge this truth, we can see our seperation from God, for He is holy.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 To continue in sin will result in spiritual death, which is separation from God forever. The alternative is to personally receive God's free gift, which is pardon for sin and provision of life everlasting.

"But God commendeith His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8 You may think you must lead a "good" life and do charitable acts before God will love you. This is not so. God loves you even in your sin. He sent Jesus Christ to kie in your place and to pay the penalty for your sin so that you can be reconciled to Him. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9

Grace means undeserved favor. God graciously offers to you what you could never do for yourself. God's gift to you is free. you do not, and cannot, work for a gift. All you need to do is receive it. Believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ died for you to provide deliverance from your sins and to give you eternal life. "But as many as received Him (Christ), to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." John 1:12 When you receive Christ-when you accept what He has done for you-you become a child of God.

Picture, if you will, Jesus Christ standing at the door of your life. Invite Him in. He is waiting to be received into your life. You can invite Jesus Christ into your life right now by praying to God something like this...Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and that I need your forgiveness. I believe that Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that He rose from the dead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my life as my Savior. Thank you for making me your child.

Help me learn to please you in every part of my life. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13

Can I pray for you? There will be proof there that you can experience for yourself.
