They look this way for a reason. The
reason is not human-friendly. You have been taught to resist anything
that suggests your world is not as it looks. A message however
continues to shout to you. He is not English. He is not American. The
news of the Eternal Word that became flesh, sent as the Saviour to
spill blood and descend to Hell only to quake forth in explosive
triumph in a rising from the dead as the forerunner for all human
beings forever, came out of Jerusalem to run through all the earth.
His work has nothing to do with religions of men set up in His name as
Hell-led campaigns to hide Him and the reason for His visits. He came
and delivered the promised solution. He came because of an unstoppable
love. The prophets of old called Him Emmanuel, Wonderful Counsellor,
Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace, Redeemer, Messiah. They
told of a first visit. They told of a second visit. His will for you
is life. Wake up. Or, at least check for yourself. For a start, at
least open the Acts of the Apostles. This should not be kept from you.
