In the discussion of God’s existence, the evidence that proves this certainty is resident within a variety of sources. This brief article notes a short list of the hundreds that are available in order to make the most logical and empirical conclusions in the smallest space possible. Let us begin with a logical examination of the facts: Continue reading “The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence”
The events that took place during the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are empirically validated by history. Today, any person can know for certain that the New Testament narrative regarding Jesus, is true, accurate, and honest. This book is a reasoned and intelligent examination of these events through the lens of history.
Many people are unaware that there are hundreds of non-biblical documents which describe Jesus of Nazareth as present in Jerusalem during the same period of history that the New Testament Gospels describe Him. These records from the Roman Senate, Jewish Talmud, and various other Greek sources, fully validate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in cooperation with the Gospel narratives.
Jesus claimed that all of the events that took place during His appearance on earth were predicted in the pages of the Old Testament. Beginning with Moses, through the Prophets, and the Psalms, incredible and impossible predictions were made concerning the Messiah.
When Jesus was resurrected on the third day, He stood in the midst of His disciples and they were deeply troubled. They found it impossible to believe that the man standing there before them was really the same Jesus that they had seen crucified. In response, Jesus said to them:
“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”
Then Jesus said to them:
“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me”
And then Jesus “opened their understanding so that they could comprehend the Scriptures.”
What were these ancient scriptures that Jesus recounted to the disciples that proved that He had fulfilled all 400 of the Messianic Prophecies and was therefore the true Messiah?
They are the very same prophecies that are contained within this book. From the beginning of the Bible, through every page that predicted and described the Messiah, “Honest Men” recounts all the events that concern the coming of Jesus into the world.
“This book will take you through every part of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, in context with all the Old Testament scriptures. By the time that you finish this book, your knowledge and understanding for who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished for you, will be immensely magnified.” -M.L. Lladas

The predictions that Jesus spoke, as recorded in the New Testament:
If any person speaks a word of prophecy in seeking to predict a future event and that event does not come to pass exactly as it was described, that person is a false prophet. The test of a true prophecy from the one true God is whether all the words come to pass precisely as they were predicted, with one-hundred percent accuracy. Even the smallest failure in any part of any prophetic utterance is an indication that the prophecy is false and that the person speaking the words is a false prophet. The people of God are to not listen to any such words or persons who make these predictions.
There are many of the prophecies of the Messiah which are so difficult and complex that it would be impossible for any one person to fulfill. How would a convicted and destitute criminal arrange to have a wealthy member of the Sanhedrin, give him his own costly tomb to be buried? Seven hundred years before Jesus was crucified and laid in the tomb, Isaiah the Prophet describes the Messiah as He is buried in the tomb of a rich man.
Isaiah 53:9a And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Matthew records Joseph of Arimathea as the rich man described by Isaiah and Nicodemus, also from the Sanhedrin, who came with 100 pounds of costly spices to anoint Jesus body.
Matthew 27:57-60 Now when evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him. When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed.
John 19:38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews’ Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby.
At first glance, many people would wonder why being buried in a rich man’s grave was important to the Messiah’s story. The fact that Jesus was so poor and without any assets of His own, being buried in the tomb of a rich man would be notable and cause for attention. This appears to be one of the reasons that the Lord chose this prophecy to be fulfilled by the Messiah. Continue reading “Impossible Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus”
Today, approximately 1 Billion people eagerly await the second arrival of Jesus Christ, in fulfillment of His promise to return to earth. Unknown to many people is the fact that the Bible reveals the precise day when Jesus would come to Jerusalem as the Messiah, the first time. The Book of Daniel, chapter 9, contains the most amazing and important prophecy of the entire Bible. In this single chapter, God reveals to us His entire prophetic plan for the last days of earth. He tells us the specific day when Jesus would come, and the precise details of His death for our sins.
When Jesus arrived and announced for the first time in His ministry that “His time had come,” there were very few who were lining the street leading into the city of Jerusalem. About 700 years before Jesus came to the city, Isaiah the prophet had predicted that when Messiah did arrive, there would be very few who would be waiting for Him.

The prophet Isaiah describes the coming Messiah as both a “Son,” and “the Everlasting Father.” How is this possible?
Isaiah 9:6g For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father…
The key to understanding these statements is found by examining the life of Jesus, as He reveals what Isaiah’s words really mean. It is interesting that by a single line of text from Isaiah 9:6, God speaks through this prophet and predicts 11 separate attributes of the Messiah–which must all be fulfilled by one person. If the Messiah will be able to demonstrate that He is the true Savior of the world: He must fulfill every part of Isaiah prophecy.
He will be a human being.
He will be a child.
He will be a Son.
He will be called Wonderful.
He will be called a Counselor.
He will be called Mighty God.
He will be called Everlasting Father.
He will be called Prince of Peace.
Of His kingdom there will be no end.
His kingdom will be established upon the throne of David.
His kingdom will be of righteous judgement and justice forever. Continue reading “How Can Jesus Be a Son and the Everlasting Father?”
