He was born 2,000 years ago in a small city called Bethlehem as a son of a carpenter. His birth was not noticed by many at that time, yet now we view all of history as divided into 2 major parts: BC – before, and AD – after his birth.
His supernatural birth was foretold by the prophet Isaiah 700 BC. It was accompanied with a mighty manifestation of angels. His death shook Jerusalem with a great earthquake splitting the rocks. The sun stopped shining. An awesome manifestation of God’s power raising people from the dead took place, and was witnessed by many.
He spoke about peace, love and forgiveness, yet people rejected him and crucified him on a cross. As he died on the cross he prayed for those who crucified him. Completely crushed with everything that took place, with tears, his executioners confessed him as the Son of God.
During 3 years of his ministry he healed thousands, fed multitudes, brought faith and hope to millions. Since then his life and teaching influenced billions of people throughout the history of the world. And his power continues to work now in the lives of those who have chosen to put their trust in him.
“How is this possible?” you can ask me. The answer is simple: “Jesus is alive. He is real. That is why it is possible.” His death on the cross was not the end. After 3 days he rose back to life and he is alive now.
His resurrection was witnessed by hundreds. It was accompanied with a great manifestation of God’s power and the appearance of angels. Even his enemies had to admit that he rose back to life.
The account of his life and teaching – The Holy Bible – is the most widely distributed book in the world. It has been translated more times and into more languages — more than 2,100 languages in all — than any other book. More than 5 billion copies of the Bible have been sold since 1815, making it the best-selling book of all-time.
His first 12 disciples multiplied through the centuries up to 2.5 billions now, comprising 30% of today’s world population.
Jesus is alive. He is real. That is what makes a difference. That is why your sins can be forgiven. Your guilt can be removed. Your tears can be wiped off. Your hopeless circumstances can be changed. Your sickness can be healed. Your broken relationships can be restored. Your life can be different.
Now while you are reading this, he is looking at you. He is not far away. In fact he is very near, right at the door of your heart. Just open your heart and let him in. Pray this simple prayer now. You can be completely sure that he is listening to you now, and he will answer this prayer because he is alive and real.
Jesus, you are the way, the truth and the life. I am coming to you now as I am. I believe that 2,000 years ago you died on the cross for me. I believe that you rose from the dead on the 3rd day. And I believe that you are alive and hear my prayer now.
Jesus, enter into my heart. Forgive my sins. Heal me. Change me. I need you. I want to follow you. I want to know the truth. I want to begin a new life with you.
Jesus, thank you so much for everything you have done for me. Amen.

With him all things are possible. Start a new life and live a different way. It’s time to be different – it’s time to be Jesus way.
