1. Jesus Christ is the Messiah
Jesus Christ came to the earth to die for our sins on the cross so that we can get saved and inherit eternal life. If Jesus Christ did not die for our sins, we will be sentenced to hell after death. Jesus Christ’s death allows the relationship being human beings and God to be reconciled. In John 4:25, the woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
In Revelation 22:1-3, And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.Â In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.Â And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.
In John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
