To be able to see a new view of reality

It is so sad to hear anyone say, “you cannot prove there is a God”. Even worse, is when clergy says it! Obviously, the focus then is all about having faith. Faith! Jesus told us in Holy Scripture that even those in the presence of a physical miracle will not believe. We also read about those in the physical presence of Jesus Christ, listening to Him speak and watching Him act; they walked away.

Through out history and today, people have and are walking away. What would make them “see” the LORD? I can introduce someone to Jesus, but I cannot “make” them believe; only the Holy Spirit can do that. So the question then becomes, how to introduce a person to see that there is indeed a God, the creator of all that is?

I contend that you can indeed prove there is a God; all you need are the eyes to see. This is why I wrote the book: I Am, the Great Creator God; it is a book that shows a person how to see, how to look at the created world differently and see the “Creator” in the creation. You must set aside your blocking agendas constructed from the day your were born, and allow a different perspective to be a possibility. It is like climbing a hill, reaching the top and seeing exposed in the distance, a glorious sight of a plain filled with wild flowers, a calm lake, and a beautiful rainbow! How magnificent…to be able to see a new view of reality you had not seen before! Yes, God is real and you too can see Him, just open your eyes to see beyond our present darkness and ask Jesus to enter your life.

Walking in the Footsteps

Posted in About the Book, How God Reveals Himself with tags , , , , on July 19, 2018 by Haven Mankin

I was surprised and moved to find out, through reading Jonathan Feldstein’s article this morning, that astronaut Neil Armstrong [first man to step on the moon] while visiting Israel in 1994, said to his archaeologist guide, standing on the old Temple steps, “So Jesus stepped right here?” The guide said these are original steps and Jesus often went to Temple, so yes, Jesus walked on those stones.

Quoting from Feldstein’s article [Jonathan Feldstein] “I have to tell you,” Armstrong said to the Israeli archaeologist, “I am more excited stepping on these stones than I was stepping on the moon.”

Think of that my friends! To be so moved by the reality of walking on the very stones that Jesus the Christ, the eternal Son of God, walked! Many still deny that Jesus Christ even existed, which I find extremely hard to go along with for many reasons, but also because we have first century Jewish and pagan historians writing about the real Jesus and His activities. The reality of Jesus many will accept; but the sticking point is…who Jesus is. Some will say He was just a good man. He was a teacher/Rabbi. He is God. He was a prophet.

Who do you think Jesus is? Your answer will impact your eternal destiny!

I know, beyond a shadow of doubt, who Jesus is; He is all those things previously mentioned, all in one LORD and Savior Christ. It is no surprise in our relativist world of self-indulgence and no absolute truths that church membership is forgetting who Jesus really is, for if we had the excitement of Neil Armstrong walking in the footsteps of Jesus, we would have full churches singing the roof off for the indescribable glory and reality of our risen Savior and LORD.
