When I learned about Jesus from the Bible when I as young the truth of it all impressed me -as a whole story, as told in the 4 Gospels - amazing yes, but it made sense. Then there was the day I asked Jesus Christ into my heart and life and from that point God started proving his promises and inspired me in a powerful way with his Love and Glory, and similarly to those around me who had invited Jesus (the second person of the three-person Godhead) into their lives.
A real experience of God through Christ is a world-wide experience by all believers of all races and nationalities; we share the same Peace, Joy and Assurance and excitement, of God's saving and protecting Love.
Christians now are being massacred ALL THE TIME rather than deny the wonderful exhilarating eternal Truth of God's Fatherly Love, real through Jesus Christ..
I have had some serious trials in my life and made wrong decisions which have caused heart-ache, but my faith has been upheld by interventions by God in my life, and many others, including wonderful answered prayer.
God is actually felt and experienced by many mature Christians, sometimes by brand new Christians. Some have vivid dreams or visions which are more real than physical experiences. Some of us have known miracles - of healing, provision and protection. The spiritual Realm is eternal and unchanging, A Christian becomes part of that spiritual reality.
This earth as it is will change dramatically. Features of the earth are always on the change. God of spirit, never changes.
