Yes he truly was.

Nobody but God's son could have done the things Jesus did,

unless he was truly God's son.

Read Q.8 and think about it.

This is the all time favourite that everybody wonders about. Some folk forget it and never have any direction in life at all. Others worry, but never find anything that satisfies the heart.

Because we are made in God's image, I believe that we belong to God. We are His children. A girl in one school put her hand up to answer that question: "So God could have a family." Simple but very true and I like it. I cannot believe we were born to be like any animal - maybe to be eaten? Never.

Ask that question of anybody and most will say: "I dunno." (I don't know.)

If you believe that you belong to God, then all through life you want to please Him. Remember He does know our thoughts and doing what God wants, pleases Him and so you find He is there to help and guide us. It can and does happen. I know many folk who have had help from God.

Here is a Bible quote from Paul to Christians in Ephesus. Paul never saw Jesus, but God chose to change him from a Christian-hater to a Christian evangelist. God met and changed him on the road to Damascus (see Acts 9:1-30). Paul had a brilliant mind and God used him to spread the 'Good news' all over Asia. He wrote: "Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be His own, through what Christ would do for us; He decided then to make us holy in His eyes without a single fault. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family by sending Jesus to die for us. And He did this because he wanted to." (Eph.1:4-6) Please note well; being a Christian in God's family can be a great life, with real fun and good friends.

Sad to say too many Christians seem to think a good time and fun cannot be had. Some say, "You have to be serious, life is hard." Rubbish!

I love a good clean joke and a laugh. See my Jokes page!

Or send me one you have heard?

No, but I like to go and see my friends and be among people who think and believe like me.

The church is not the building - OK. The church is the people who meet together there. Many churches do not have a building, some even meet under a tree. In some countries Christians have to be 'unseen' or they may be killed. And some churches only have one Bible among 50 members.

Say you lived at Ayres Rock. Bit silly to drive to Alice Springs, a round trip of 200km! But there are many Christian radio and TV programmes to help you learn and grow in knowledge. We all need to grow. Buy a Bible or search bible.org

God's age is not known. The Bible says: "From everlasting to everlasting you are God." And Peter wrote:  "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." (2 Peter 3: 8). In heaven time will be no more.

Moses and Elijah appeared in a special moment with Jesus. Peter, James and John were there. God spoke to them from the sky. Both Moses and Elijah had been dead for 1,000 years. Today they would be 3,000 years old.

Wow, that's a lot of birthdays!!! (See Matthew 17: 1-9)

Please note: The disciples knew who Moses and Elijah were. How, I know not but they looked pretty normal, so God's message was the major thought: "This is my Son whom I love; with Him I am well pleased. Listen to Him." It is a most interesting time (Jesus' face shone like the sun and the three disciples were terrified.) Coming down from that mountain Jesus said: "Don't tell anyone what you have seen until the Son of Man (Jesus) has been raised from the dead." That's a powerful statement! (Matthew 17:1-9)

Really it does not matter what he looks like. We may not be able to handle it. His purity, love and majesty may frighten us. His voice scared the daylights out of ?The children of Israel? and they begged Moses to let them get away. (Exodus 20:18-21)

To look at him is not permitted. God spoke to Moses face to face because God trusted Moses and at the time God thought it necessary for teaching Israel His laws.

The Disciples asked Jesus the same question as you did. Jesus said: ?If you have seen me you have seen the father.?

Nobody knows. Be assured it is written, Jesus said He would come back - so He will. What Jesus says you can trust? 

At that time everything will be changed. Wickedness will be shown up and punished, all evil will be judged, the earth will be 'cleansed'' (cleaned up) and judgement day will happen too.

There will be a "New heaven and earth" with Jesus reigning as King and God (Revelations 21:1). "I will make all things new."

I am looking forward to that. It may not happen in my lifetime, but it could, today. Evil seems to flourish, wars seem to happen all the time. Also water is short and how do 7 or 8 billion people on earth manage? I find it hard to imagine.

Make sure you are on Jesus team!

Finally, my opinion: "How long will God permit one billion people to be too well fed and fat while 25,000 children die every day from easily preventable sickness and one billion go to bed hungry?"

See Q6 too.
