in response to reader comment: THE LAMB ISSUE

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Dec 2, 2009 at 13:24

If one were to understand the last sentence of your first paragraph, then we would have to think you have not fully read at least the Gospels, which are a compilation of firsthand accounts of the reality of Jesus Christ.

In Matthew and Luke, there are the accounts testified to by His birth mother. Then the apostles have given their testimonies. Then there is Caiaphas (whose tomb was recently rediscovered, but then that still requires belief), who was the leader of His accusers that sent Him to the cross (the place of which still exists to this day). John, who laid his head on Jesus Christ's chest in the Upper Room, wrote later explaining the relationship of Almighty God through Jesus Christ as the LAMB, in the Revelation. It does not get any more personal than that.

The exposition that all references to Jesus Christ were written in ignorance to the facts are in fact the same arguments that were initiated prior to the crucifixion, while Jesus Christ was still in involved in His mission to His people, and it was His own people that sought to marginalize His witness then, making it so much easier for unbelief today. They were the ones whose contrived stories were used to put Jesus Christ before the Roman Governor for his pronouncement of death. He complied, and that became part of history, which one might read of in the works of Josephus if the Holy Bible proves too difficult.

Only in unbelief is the allegation of absurd possible: but the irony of it all is this, that the Adversary knows he has little time to sway anybody from believing who Jesus Christ is, and when he is close to being finished with the unbelief and the delusions he has caused, the true reality will be made apparent and his efforts will be brought to nothing as Jesus Christ comes calling for those who believed.

So, yes, I intend to be numbered with the faithful, if for no other reason than Jesus Christ, the LAMB of Almighty God said it is so.
