I've read through your comments on this thread and here are some of my thoughts:
Jesus stepped down from supreme heavenly power, glory, and majesty to become a human baby, so that He could take the punishment I deserve for my sinful thoughts, words, and actions.
His plan was to die!
OK, let's have a look at how Jesus prepared for his death on the eve of his "alleged" crucifixion. Jesus takes his disciples to the upper room where they're having the last supper together. At the supper table, Jesus tells his disciples:
"When I sent you out on your mission of preaching and healing without purse, bags or sandals, did you lack anything? They replied and said: "Nothing" [Luke 22:35]
Then He (Jesus) said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
" [Luke 22:36]
They said, "Lord, look, here are two swords." And He said to them, "It is enough." [Luke 22:38]
What do the disciples now need a sword for when they didn't need it at any time before? To chop apples and bananas?? No, it's to chop off people's head, just as Jesus said in Luke 19:27:
"But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring them hither, and slay them before me.
" [Luke 19:27]
So now, Jesus tells his disciples to arm themselves and they do so. Then, he takes them to the garden of Gethsemane, in the middle of the night. What for? To pray? Couldn't he have prayed in that upper room? Couldn't he have gone to the temple of Jerusalem, a stone's throw from where he was?
No, there is a strategy involved here. Jesus was preparing for his own protection and here is how I prove it to you:
When he reaches the garden of Gethsemane, he puts 8 men at the gate and tells them to sit there while he takes Peter (The "Rock") and the two sons of Zebedee (the "Sons of Thunder") further into the garden and makes an inner line of defense and tells them "sit ye here and watch with me" [Matthew 26:38]. Watch what? Jesus meant "KEEP GUARD".
And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will." [Matthew 26:39], in other words he was telling God "Oh my Lord, I want you to save me but in the end, I put myself at your disposal".
Is that how you would prepare for a willing sacrifice? With 8 at the gate and 3 others keeping watch behind him...?
The Christians say there is a contract between the Father and the Son, that in the year 4000 after Adam, God Almighty will send His son into the world to die for the sins of mankind... yet, it seems like Jesus knew nothing about it seeing the way he was acting in the garden of Gethsemane.
Jesus is the only way to heaven. Trust in Him! Pick up your Bible today, right now, and learn more about Him while there is still time to repent.
Yes, let's learn more about Jesus in the Bible. Let's see what Jesus says in the Bible and see how many of his teachings you and the bulk of Christians follow:
"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees
, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." [Matthew 5:20]
In other words, there is no heaven for you Christians unless you are better than the Jews; and how do you expect to be better than the Jews but not keeping the laws and the commandments in a more strict manner than them?
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled
. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments
, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." [Matthew 5:17-19]
Once again, Jesus is telling you to keep the laws and the commandments. But why won't you? Oh right, because your sins are nailed to the cross! And who told you that? Jesus? No, PAUL told you that in his teachings. You are contradicting Jesus because he says:
"The disciple is not greater than the master..." [Matthew 10:24]. Who is your master? You say Jesus, but then how come you choose to follow Paul's teachings instead of Jesus'?! You should call yourselves Paulians, not Christians because Paul is the real founder of Christianity, not Jesus. If you follow Jesus and listen to him, you can't help being a muslim. You will be a muslim through and through. But you don't want to listen to Jesus because Paul offers you easy salvation.
And Jesus says "Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me." [Matthew 10:38]
So take up your cross and follow Jesus. That is your way to salvation.
