For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
The Transformation of Jesus
The Transformation of Jesus in a person’s life leads to an act of changing and converting ones heart of sinfulness to a heart of redemption. Transformation instills a spirit of surrender of our will over to the will of God.
Although in the flesh we are still sinners, conversion brings us over from one belief system to another.
Our sinfulness is our transgression, an offense against God.
Through redemption we are redeemed and saved, set free from our captivity of sin.
By saving us He has rescued us and delivered us from sin for our salvation.
Through His forgiveness He relieves us and pardons us of our sins, and we now serve Him in a new relationship.
Through resurrection He raises us back to life after death, and liberates us to Him for eternal life.e.

Christianity is a Religion, based on a Jesus Relationship
Jesus the Jewish religious teacher whose life, death, and resurrection as reported by the Christians and Evangelists are the basis of the Christian message of salvation. Also known as Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, Messiah, The Truth, Way, and Light of the world. Jesus is part of the Holy Trinity and known to Christians as the Son of
God, the Savior who brings the free gift of salvation and the resurrection of life.
According to common interpretations of the four canonical gospels, Jesus was born between 8 BC and AD 6 and was baptised by John the Baptist at the start of his ministry, about 30 years later. His ministry lasted one year (Synoptic gospels) or three years (Book of John), and he was executed under Pontius Pilate between AD 26 and 37. He rose from the dead three days later, appeared to the disciples and others, and then ascended to heaven.
Jesus is an historical figure who lived 2000 years ago. What makes Jesus unique is;
He professed to be the Son of God, the Messiah. The Messiah is the promised one who conquers evil and delivers His people.
He came to save the lost, healed many, and raised people from the dead.
He was crucified by the Romans but then arose 3 days later and was seen alive by more than 500 witnesses to His resurrection.
We celebrate many religions on this earth, and yet out of all the other religions worshiped, Christianity is the only faith where one man died for all of mankind. He was beaten, whipped, spat on, and crucified on a cross for the salvation of the world. He is the only man whoever gave up his own life freely proclaiming to be the Son of God, with the good news for eternal salvation.
A Christian is a person who professes their belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. One who has faith and accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and believes He died as atonement for their sins, and was resurrected for their eternal lives. Christians are to be Christ- like, to be like fruit of the vine, and to go out and bear fruit, to be like lamps of light unto the world, and like the salt of the earth.
Christians believe that Jesus is the mediator of the New Covenant, the Son of God and the promised Messiah.
The first Christians were Jewish, known as the disciples of Jesus. The disciples were the inner circles of Christ’s followers who accepted him, and assisted in spreading the doctrines of Jesus. The first disciples are also known as the twelve apostles; Bartholomew, James Minor, Andrew, Peter also called Simon Peter, Judas Iscariot,
John, Thomas, James Major, Philip, Matthew, Thaddeus, and Simon the Canaanite.
Jesus tells us, "You must forgive others who have wronged you before you can be forgiven (by God) for your sins.
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my
brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?"
Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.
The Greek word for ‘forgive’ used in the New Testament normally means ‘to let go, to dispose of something’. This offers us insight for life. To not forgive another means to let what they have done affect who we are – this is a choice to our detriment, which not even God can change, nor can God relieve us of the consequences of our choice. And to not forgive leads us towards hatred and revenge which are discussed just before (Matt 5: 38-48; headlines 13 & 14)
By contrast, to ‘let go’ of the hurt others have caused us is to ‘let go’ of the grip they have gained, by their actions, over our mind and emotions. To ‘let it drop’ frees me to look at my own need for forgiveness, to be loved by God and to live freely with love for others, as God intended.
By practicing this act, which only takes a moment, I become a peace-maker, rather than a peace-breaker (Matt 5: 9
“How do I find this Jesus and the truth about him”?
“Pray, and in your Prayer, Simply Ask.
Jesus knows the heart of every man, by asking this question it seems as if you may be searching for truth, and He must be knocking at your door, you need to open the door to Him, and invite Him in that He might lead you out of the darkness, and Into the Light, the transformation created in you through His saving grace will create another Miracle for eternity”.
