Jesus, and the Landing on the Moon

I believe in Jesus! Well, of course I do, who doesn't? That's a bit of an odd statement as He was a historical figure regardless of your belief system. Though I suppose if you don't think we landed on the moon, than you may think that Jesus didn't exist either!

However while we may differ on doctrine, as Christians it means (or should mean) that we believe in who He was and said to be; the son of the one true living God.

Yet at times I think it would be nice if Jesus decided to reveal Himself to me (and the world) visually in ways tangible to our simple human understanding. I think it would be great for Him to come down, teach a bit, prove His power, and then head back to the throne. I think that if He really wanted us all to put our trust in Him that He would come down here, walk with us a bit, and just ... well ... prove it! After all, He knows how we were created and knows how we learn and understand. Seeing is believing right? So why not just reveal Himself in a clear simple way!

I mean imagine if He came here (in human form of course), fulfilled some of those prophesies, taught us, and better yet performed some miracles right in front of our human eyes! If we saw that then there would be no doubt. In fact, we would probably joyfully find ourselves persecuted and even die for Him because He would be "that real" to us! Seriously ponder that; imagine if God revealed Himself to us like that.

Perhaps even give Him a name that would be forever remembered ... like ... Jesus.
If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” (John 10:37-38 ESV)
God most certainly understands our minds and the need for humanistic proof; and He gave us this proof. Just because it wasn't our generation that was around when He walked this earth in human form and performed all these miracles doesn't make it any less real. He knew what we needed to believe, and He gave it to us.

We are a future generation now:
Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29 ESV)
He knew what we needed, and He gave it to us. Got belief?

Proof? Proof!

His,
~Matt

Amen! I agree... I want a mental picture to see when I think of Him sometimes, but I have to remember that it is in the faith that I believe.
