Recently, Dr. John MacArthur was the guest on the Ben Shapiro show. Enjoy.
Who is Jesus?
There is a war going on in the world today.
Now I am not speaking about a physical war or a nation at war with another nation or people at war another group of people (all which may be true). (However, these types of wars are evidences of the big war I am referring to). The war I am talking about is a spiritual one. This war is not between flesh and blood. This war is for the hearts and minds of every single person on the planet and it’s ultimately against God. As Christians we must not let up in fighting the good fight of faith and sharing the truth of who Jesus truly is. If we don’t, millions of people will be going to hell forever. This is not God’s way. Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am?”
So today I ask the same question. Who do you say that Jesus is? Was He just a man or something more? Because if He was something more, shouldn’t we all find out what that is?
When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16:13-17
God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. 1 Timothy 3:16
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
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. John 1:1-5, 14
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
What Truly Matters
Billions of people are posting each day on the internet. Some things that are posted to their blogs matter more than other things but I urge you not to shrug this post off as just another blog post and/or religious person’s crazy post who doesn’t get many views. If you have questions about God, the Bible, heaven or hell, etc you need answers. And you need the right answers. If you are mad at God, Christians or both you need answers. If you are mad at anybody you need answers. For sure all of your questions may not have satisfactory answers right now but the ones God wants us to know right now do. We may not like the answers but God always will give the correct answers. You owe it to yourself to get answers to your questions but most importantly to find out for sure what happens after you die because you may not have tomorrow. Thank you for your time.

I believe Ted Cruz is the best choice for President in 2016. Not that I can vote for him in the party primary election because I can’t (I live in California) but maybe you can and if so, you should be voting for Mr. Cruz.
Mr. Cruz is man who operates in the fear of God and knows that without God giving him breath and life he can do nothing. We need men and women who fear and live in reverence of Almighty God and specially God of the Bible. When people don’t fear God (or pretend He doesn’t exist) they will do anything even if it is what God hates or calls evil.
Compassionate and Caring but Hates Evil
I do not know Mr. Cruz personally but as a fellow person who seeks to follow Jesus Christ, I know he is a man of integrity, honesty and one who seeks to stand up for the truly down-trodden, persecuted, and victimized. Mr. Cruz like the rest of us is not perfect or sinless because only Jesus was both, but like Jesus, I believe Mr. Cruz hates what is evil and will expose it as far as is humanly possible with God’s help.
More Reasons I Support Ted Cruz (and why you should too)
Of course, there are more reasons to support Ted Cruz for President but I only wanted to mention a few here. For example, besides his desire to fight for this country and protect it from bad guys, he truly cares and supports our veterans and those serving in the Armed Forces to protect our freedom. He’s pro-life, pro second Amendment, anti-establishment, a true conservative, pro Biblical marriage, knows who hates us and wants us destroyed, supports Israel, is not Obama, is not Hillary, is not Bernie, knows the difference between right and wrong according to God’s standard, will stand up for what is right according to God’s standard and not human standards, will fight against what is wrong according to God’s standard, believes and trusts in our Creator God, prays for guidance that comes from God, knows how and where life began, and did I mention he supports Israel despite growing world antisemitism from countries like Iran that state Israel should not exist. Let us pray and support Ted Cruz because we need true men and women of God who are able to expose what is evil and proclaim what is true.
