Video Illustration: Got Jesus? From Video Impact
It¡¦s a video clip of a man standing on a bridge getting ready to bungee jump. He jumps off the bridge and the camera focuses on the bungee and it shows it is untied to the bridge. We then hear a thump and the questions come up ¡§Got Jesus?¡¨
The implication of the clip is, ¡§Are you ready?¡¨ if death came knocking at your door. Where would you go up or down? What is your eternal destiny?
ƒç John 1:4
ƒç ¡§In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.¡¨
ƒç John 3:15
ƒç ¡§¡KEveryone who believes in Him may have eternal life.¡¨
The time in which we live makes many people wonder if we are in the last days. Listen to this report from Last day Ministries. Read Report on the 6th Trumpet.
Even the media has been picking up on this idea of the last days. Even a teacher in a local school asked me what I thought about the world¡¦s timeframe. He wanted to know if I thought we were at the 6th trumpet blast spoken about in Revelation chapter 9. Others have asked me ¡§Are we very close to Jesus coming back?¡¨ ¡§Is this the horrific war spoken about in Revelation 9 were 1/3 of the world¡¦s population will be destroyed by fire, smoke and sulfur?¡¨
I do find it interesting that recently the Left Behind Series has sky rocketed in popularity and in essence is communicating the truth about the end times. Is it coincidence? Or is God preparing the world for its final days?
I have heard many preachers saying something is in the air. Many who are actually prophesying that the end will come within years and the Irag War is just the beginning of it all. So we come back to the question ¡§Got Jesus?¡¨ If the end were to happen tomorrow would you be ready?
That is the question of the moment,¡¨ If you were to die in an accident like the man in our video do you have Jesus to give you eternal life? If Jesus was to come back tomorrow would you go with Him? Or would you run away from Him? It¡¦s a matter of the heart ¡V Do you got Jesus? I mean really know Jesus? I mean have an intimate personal relationship with Him? I am not asking if you know about Him but do you know Him? I¡¦m not asking if you have religion but do you have Jesus?
The truth is if you Got Jesus then you have everything you need to make it in this life and in the next life. Let¡¦s see what we get when we Got Jesus:
