The Bible is full of records that prove that Jesus is the son of God. I am happy that Jesus proves Himself even today that He surely is the son of God but I want to go back to what happened in His last moments in this world which proved that Jesus was the son of God. People that lived at that time witnessed His powers and divine support from God. It appears as if throughout history people have a tendency to deny Jesus and His works yet today there are genuine miracles that are purely through Jesus’ works. It is not surprising that even today people still deny Jesus.
I would also like to highlight today’s visions and dreams that people experience and realize beyond doubt that Jesus is the son of God. Not all of us will have a chance to be taken on a vision yet if you want Jesus to reveal Himself to you in that way, you can pray to Him to do that for you and I believe He will. If you go online and search for ‘Bill Wiese 23 minutes in hell’, ‘Victoria Nehale Time is fast running out’, ‘Ian McCormack box jellyfish’ and ‘Angelica Zamboro’ you will learn about their experiences that prove that Jesus is the son of God. You can also search for visions from Jesus Christ to Muslims and you will be surprise to learn the extent to which Jesus goes to prove to people that He is the son of God.
The earth reacting to Jesus’ death
In the book of Matthew 27:45 – 54, we learn about the death of Jesus Christ. People interpreted His utterances for a call to Elijah yet He was talking to God. In verse 54, the earth responded by shaking and this verse gives us an idea that a lot more happened other than just the earthquake which led to people declaring, ‘Surely he was the Son of God!’.
Jesus the prophet
I John 2:18 – 22, Jesus prophesied about His resurrection. He said, ‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’ Then the Jews said, ‘It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?’ But he was speaking of the temple of his body. When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had spoken..’. Therefore, people of the time wanted to see this happening just to satisfy their doubts about Jesus being a liar or not, which would prove that He was or wasn’t the son of God. This would prove that Jesus was who He claimed to be.
Just to make the point straight, Jesus did not anticipate that He will die and rise again in the third day but He knew it without a doubt. This was such an important sign such that Pilate was convinced by Chief Priests and Pharisees to put a guard just to make sure that the resurrection was not made up but a reality. This is recorded Matthew 27:62 – 66.
Jesus prophesied about His death and resurrection, which was not going to be a good experience for Him but He wanted the world to know beforehand what would happen to Him. This and many other truths that are evident in our time give me confidence in Christianity.
