Struggling with the concept of God
Faced with many difficult questions, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has over 30 years of experience to share with the world.
Ketonguno from India asks Pastor Chris:
“I have been hearing that God is real but I’m finding it very hard to believe. I just don’t know what to believe and how to believe. I have been reading the bible but I don’t understand what I’m reading. Also, I have been praying, but I don’t know to whom I am speaking. What do I do?”
The Man of God offers Ketonguno an answer which is researched and heart-felt from the incredible knowledge and wisdom of the Word.
He starts off with a brief history saying: “Almost 2000 years ago, a man named Jesus was born of a virgin and he declared that he was sent from God as God’s son. His birth was a miracle birth because he was born of a virgin and then he also told us, by several miraculous signs that he came from God, and he brought a message from God and the Bible tells us how he died for us as a sacrifice. He was buried.”
Pastor Chris continues with his explanation: “The third day God proved that he was truly from him by raising him from death. Jesus was raised from the dead as proof that he was from God. After his resurrection, he ascended in the presence of 120 people who saw him. The Bible tells us more than 500 people saw him after his resurrection.”
Continuing to answer Ketonguno, Pastor Chris says: “Now this Jesus ascended physically through the clouds to heaven- one more proof that he was the son of God- this Jesus being proved by God Almighty. When you say you don’t believe there is a God, you have to understand everything in nature could not have come accidentally there is too much order in nature to have come as an accident. It’s impossible! You’d have to deceive yourself.”
We all have the capacity to believe
Pastor Chris adds some more insight to the explanation he gives Ketonguno: “Another beautiful thing is that every human being has the capacity to believe in an unseen God; everyone! It is natural for human beings to believe with their hearts.”
“Believing is a choice and that’s why we talk about Jesus because he was more than a religious leader. God Almighty, whom he came to declare, testified of him through his birth, through his miraculous life, through his death (which he commanded). That’s another miracle- he gave up a ghost, he gave up his own spirit at his death, and then by his resurrection from the dead and finally by his ascension into heaven- he didn’t just vanish!”
Pastor Chris explains that Jesus ascended before the eyes of those who were watching him, and the biggest part of all of this is that God vested power into his name such that almost 2000 years after all of this happened his name still has power today.
The Man of God goes on to say that if you would believe in this Jesus of Nazareth, he would impart to you eternal life. You don’t have to see him, you can believe with your heart because his name still has power today.
The biggest lesson of all is one where Pastor Chris tells Ketonguno: “You can receive that into your heart and then all of your sins that you’ve committed would be purged out of your heart. The nature of sin would be gone because that’s the reason he came to die for us- to wash our sins away and settle that with God Almighty so we could have eternal life.”
