St. Luke 7:19-23 says and John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus saying, Art thou he that should come? Or look we for another? When the men were come unto him they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee saying art thou he that should come? Or look we for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
Then Jesus answering said unto them, go your way and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in me.
My subject is look no further, the Christ here. People are looking for God in all the wrong places. Individuals are searching for him in cults, fraternal organizations at universities and through spirituality new age movements but God is not there.
This world is a web of religious ideologies designed to keep you from the truth that is in Christ alone. God reveals himself in his Word, Jesus Christ and would love nothing more than that man would repent and come to Jesus. The Lord Jesus is the answer to all the issues of man since He created man. Jesus is not hard to find, for he will reveal himself to us personally if we really want him.
We must understand that according to Hebrews 11:6 which says but without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. So therefore we must believe that he is God and look no further.
I believe that deep down on the inside, man wants to be connected to something greater than himself. In addition to this, he knows that there is another life that awaits, a life that God has prepared for those who love his appearing. This is around the time that man begins looking for God even though the Lord has been here the whole time.
St John 10:23-25 says And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon `s porch then came the Jews round about him and said unto him, how long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father` s name, they bear witness of me. To this day, many of the Jews are still looking for the Christ but Jesus already came, is here and behold he is coming back again. Amen.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
