Watch “The Glory of the Crucified King by Dr. Maher Samuel” Easter

The Gospel Story In Arabic with subtitles – A truly inspired sermon.

Many people in the world struggle with the idea that God would become a man.

God loved his creation so much that He became one of us so he could save us from ourselves when we were separated from Him as a result of sin.

At Easter we celebrate God’s great love when He became a man, lived a perfect life, and became the perfect spotless Lamb of God who let himself be sacrificed to pay the price for our sin when He died on the cross.

When He rose again on the third day He demonstrated that He defeated death.

An almost equal amount of people in the world struggle with the idea that someone who is all-powerful could be treated so terribly and still be all-powerful.

We don’t recognize the ultimate power and majesty of Jesus Christ when it is manifested as humility and sacrifice.

God is perfect. To dwell with perfection we also must be perfect in our past, present, and future.

So only a perfect replacement for imperfect righteousness would work for us, and only God is perfect.

And God Came Down as the Man Jesus Christ to personally save us Himself.

He lived as one of us.

Dr. Samuel preaches in Arabic with English subtitles and brilliantly shows how God as Jesus was in control through the Betrayal and His trials and the crucifixion.

“No man takes my life but I lay it down freely” said Jesus (The Gospel of John 10:18)

Unlike anything found in human nature Jesus alone showed us ultimate strength present in ultimate humility for our salvation sake through the entire events of his trials suffering and death.

Perhaps strength through humility is not easy for us to recognize because it is so unfamiliar to humanity overall?

Pride, power, and forced compliance are more familiar to us.

But God through Jesus conquers hearts and minds by demonstrating supreme love for us.

Dr. Samuel also points out how Pontius Pilate and Pilot’s wife both testified that Jesus was a just man, thus fulfilling scripture of the Lamb of God without spot or blemish to take away the sin of the world.

Jesus Christ was even sovereign over death and rose from the grave on the third day.

He is the author of life and gives life to all who believe and place their hope and faith in Him for salvation from eternal judgement.

Do you believe that Jesus Christ did for you what you are incapable of doing for yourself?

The Gospel of John 1:

11He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
12But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
13who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 Dr.John Lennox – Sorry Shelden, The Big Bang Theory Supports God as Creator – on YouTube

Dr. John Lennox was a student at Oxford during the same time Steven Hawking was. Dr. Lennox went on to teach Pure Mathmatics at Oxford and Queens College. 

He points out the fallacy of Stephen Hawking’s same quote that because the law of gravity exists the universe will create something from nothing.

Dr. Lennox , who also has a doctorate in philosophy, points out that because Hawking saying something comes from nothing is total nonsense.

So much for the Big Bang Theory disproving God as Creator. Quite the opposite!

 Microwave Sciences discovering in 50s prove everything did come from a big bang but that all the conditions had to be perfect to such a degree that even Hawking implied it almost would have to be orchestrated by a supreme intelligence.

Watch “Famous Last Words of Jesus, Muhammad, and Nabeel Qureshi” on YouTube

Watch “Where does Morality Come from? – Nabeel Qureshi (1983-2017) & Ravi Zacharias Q&A” 

On September 16, 2017 Nabeel Qureshi passed from this life into the next. Nabeel fought long and hard with his stomach cancer. Now he has no more suffering, no more pain, only unimaginable joy in the presence of God.

  • In this particular video you will see Nabeel express his confidence in life after death because of Jesus Christ and the love and merciful grace of God.
  • We will miss you Nabeel.
  • Thank you for leaving us with three books and dozens of videos to help us find the Truth about God, Jesus, eternity, Christianity in contrast to what is taught in Islam.

“Because I live, you will live also.”

Jesus Christ in The Gospel of John 14:19

When Your Heart Says You are Depressed, Question it, and Remind it of All God Is and has Promised. Talk With Self

“The main problem in the whole matter of “spiritual depression” in a sense is this – we allow our “self” to talk to us instead of “talking to ourself.”  Most unhappiness in life is due to the fact that we “listen to ourselves” instead of “talking to ourselves.”  David, in effect, says, “Self, listen for a moment to what I have to say – why are you so cast down?”  The main art in the matter of spiritual living is to know how to handle yourself, question yourself, and preach to yourself – you must remind yourself who God is, and what God has done, and what God has promised to do”

From the Book “SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION”

by Martyn Lloyd-Jones- 
(1899 – 1981)

Depression is real. I would even say that at times feeling depressed is temporarily appropriate. Those times may even drag for a while. Days or even years. 

God is real too, and so are His promises. 

Even in death , believers in Christ as Lord, Savior, and God can claim victory. Its sure. 

13In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,

14whofn is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

Ephesians 1:13, 14 The Bible

Let Nabeel know on Facebook and Twitter that you love him and you are praying for him”Vlog 42 – Palliative Care” on YouTube

Watch “Vlog 37 – The Power of Prayer, a Reprieve from Pain” on YouTube

Dr. Nabeel Qureshi is fighting stage 4 stomach cancer.

This video is amazing. You can witness what God is taking one man through and you can see what God is doing in his life. We get a glimpse into what God is possibly working, the pressures that Nabeel is facing ,the potential character only God can bring and the changes only God can make in a person’s life.

I pray for Nabeel for God to totally heal him. Nabeel is unique person in many ways a soldier for Christ whose heart is dedicated to increasingly loving God with all that is in him even as his bodily strength is reduced by chemotherapy and is challenged by pain and suffering and weakness. Nabeel continues to declare his love for God and at times seems to do so to a higher degree even as he becomes weaker! Yet God is doing something amazing, and God is working in wonderful ways in this man’s suffering. Perhaps he will be completely healed of his cancer.

For those of us who watch Nabeel updates as he goes through the valley of the shadow of death fighting cancer we get glimpses and insights their unique and will be treasured forever.

Those of you who do not know Nabeel need to know that he was raised strict Muslim and in medical school converted to Christianity through his friend David Wood whose videos are also on YouTube.

What I have seen Nabeel going through seems very much like what Christ endured during his 40 days of fasting in the desert. As His extreme weakness and His Faith are being tempted, His great strength is being formed far beyond human capability, faith that is in God alone through Christ alone.

If you watch this video you will do yourself and your friends a great service. I challenge you to watch through the times of obvious weakness and you’ll be rewarded by great Faith. You will witness faith in God rise above great human suffering.

You will see a unique and unspeakable truth come through in this video. The Love that grows stronger and more evident when tested, a love that identifies with Christ who’s suffering makes knowing God possible for all that place their faith in Jesus and His cross, and His sacrifice to pay for our sin.
