Chapter 3: The Biblical Proofs of the Deity of Jesus Christ - Sixth: The Gifts He Gives
SIXTH: THE GIFTS HE GIVES
Jesus Christ gives many blessings and gifts to those who believe in Him as the Son of God, Savior, Lord, and God’s Last Messenger.
He gives rest.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28 - NKJ).
Jesus Christ gives rest from the burden of sin, from the sense of guilt, from care.
There is no human being who could give rest to all who labor and are heavy laden. God only is the one who gives that kind of rest.
He gives satisfaction.
Nothing in the world can fully satisfy the heart of man. King Solomon tried to find happiness in material things, but at the end he said,
Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun...Therefore, I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit (Ecclesiastes 2:11,17).
But Jesus Christ can satisfy the human heart.
He said to the Samaritan woman:
Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life (John 4:14).
He gives assurance of salvation from the wrath of God and a promise of eternal life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life (John 5:24).
This is contrary to what the Quran says. The Quran assures every Muslim that he or she must enter hell.
These are the words of the Quran:
Man says: "What! When I am dead, shall I then be raised up alive?" But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing? So, by thy Lord, without doubt, We shall gather them together, and [also] Satans [with them]; then shall We bring them forth on their knees round about Hell; ... Not one of you but will pass over it (literally enter it); this is, with thy Lord, a Decree which must be accomplished (Surat Maryam 19:66-70 - King Fahd Holy Quran).
