Dear friend Masood

In saying that you want to have faith in Jesus Christ takes you away from being an atheist to being a seeker of truth in Jesus Christ. The verse you referred to comes from the Jewish ‘Old Testament', being the prophetic references to Jesus Christ in His first appearance to the Jewish people in Israel. The verses 1-12 are about Jesus as the sufferer and sacrifice for the sins of mankind, to be crucified to pay for those sins. These verses were fulfilled when Jesus Christ was brought before Pontius Pilate to be put to death at the request of the religious rulers of the time. They did so because they did not believe in Jesus Christ.

By faith, you can believe in Jesus Christ, that in the Gospel of John, 3:16, the reason Jesus Christ was crucified was because Almighty God love you and has a place for you in heaven for believing. Read further in Isaiah chapter 61 and see the resurrected Jesus in those words, now being in power to give assurance, a guarantee of eternal life for you. There is freedom from the guilt of sins that everyone one who believes in Jesus receives, because He paid for those sins on the cross. Read Roman 5:8.

Romans 10:9 , 10 tells how by faith in Jesus Christ we are able to confess Him to receive Him in our hearts, belief that comes from the Holy Spirit meeting you in prayer and making a new life for you.

The scriptures are indeed Jewish in their origin, both the old Testament and the new Testament, but they are for all who will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, for it is His promise to be faithful to those who will love Him and be obedient to Is WORD in faith. Pray to Jesus in His Name for the faith necessary to understand what the Holy Bible is telling –it already looks like He is calling for you to pray to Him. He WILL answer you if you truly seek Him.
