Amazed that Hitler understood evolution perfectly. His claim that Germans have been the leaders of Europe for 900 years is self evident Germans are superior. Behind every one of the highest human endeavors there was a German who brought it into the world or made something better that was originally created by a lesser race. Everything from classical composers, medicine, inventions, art, literature, physics, and chemestry, etc. He also says one does not need any further proof then the list of Nobel Peace prize winners under any field to find its an exhaustive list of Germans who dominate it. All the while Hitler speaks he cites Darwin’s theories, a submits hard evidence Germans have obviously evolved higher then the rest of Europe. How can anyone deny this is true when after 70 years of his death it’s still true, Germans are indeed and always been very good at just about everything – and they still dominate every field in Nobel Peace prize awards. How else could one measure the superior evolved race then simply looking at which race has the highest achievements?
Hitler hits the nail on the head for evolutionists, yet I’m certain they would deny it tooth and nail. A subtle reminder the only practical application for the theory of evolution is eugenics. Yet from time to time I’m asked to believe Hitler was a Christian?
I like Germans I think their great people and certainly leaders like Martin Luther are indispensable for the church. However I disagree with Hitler this is an example of Germans being higher “evolved”, rather they are blessed by God with ingenuity. For over 900 years before Hitler Germany has always upheld christ with great respect. Even against catholic influence. Could it be evidence God blesses a culture with ingenuity and creativity when they are a godly people? Behind so many german historic figures they all claim God as their inspiration- up until Germany embraced atheism around 1900-1947
I would point to the evidence it wasn’t until Germany turned their back on God and became atheist they lost both world wars. I would add the salt on the wound with evidence the great leader, and “saviour” of Germany, was reduced to a cowardly suicide.
My grandparents were both born in 1923, Grandma in Germany, Grandpa in America. Both of these countries suffered the 2 worst economic tumoils in history- Weimer Republic and the Great Depression (though I think Weimar was much worse then the depression). They always told me: “Trust the bank like you trust your sandwich with the dog”. When they died, we were amazed to find $800k cash in a box under the floor boards.
She only used the bank to cash checks, and only put enough money in the account for bills +$10 to keep the account open. She kept everyone of her bank statements since 1932, while living in Germany with her first bank account- in 70+ years she did this every month of her life. Not once did she ever take a loan or credit card, she often found it was unnecessary. She died in a cozy house, no debts and a reletively stress free life.
This generation of people knew a lot of secretes about banks. Grandma grew up during the Weimer republic period in Germany, and my Grandfather lived through the American depression. In both countries Bank runs, inflation, government hands in the bank, stock crashes, and so much more were common occurances. They knew all too well not trust the bank anymore then the government.
Work for commodity not money.
Growing up in the Weimer Republic grandma learned early what life is like when the value of the dollar is worthless. say you have $20 today you can buy a loaf of bread with it, but tomorrow that same loaf will be $500, the next day it’s $3. This kind of volitilitay is completely under exaggerated, however what happens is you never know how much that loaf of bread is when you go to the store. On top of this the store might not want to sell it if they think they can charge more tommorrow… better yet what if you don’t even have $20 to begin with. What do you do?
Work for things your company makes. Washing machines, clothes, bullets, chocolate whatever. Don’t take cash as payment take something you can trade. Grandma would work at the chocolate factory as a kid and trade chocolate for supper and things the family needed. She would only get money from collecting bills on the streets to burn it in the furnace. Yup the money was so worthless people just dumped it on the street.
Grandpa had a similar situation in America. Living in the hills of West Virginia during the depression and a dead father- his mom and siblings had to hunt for their food and pick wild mushrooms. They would skin the animal and trade the fur for other things they needed like Medicine or horse feed. They never had a cent and always had what they needed.
How can I not next go into food after the above? The bible tells us to flee into the hills during tribulation, I think grandpa is proof that’s good advice. West Virginia has plenty of hills, just take your pick there. What’s good about this advice is in the woods you should be able to get food in a variety of ways, and you should be able to take care of yourself without relying on society too much- if at all. There’s plenty of Prepper sites just look around and be creative. Due to the virtually limitless info I could give here I’m not going into it- I may as well just write a whole other blog on the topic of getting your own food.
I will say this much, because it’s not very well written about. Most poisonous berries and mushrooms are good to eat after they are cooked- particularly in colder climates like Europe and north America. This also applies to snakes and things, just an FYI
Of course you will get bored luckily grandpa and grandma had a remedy.
No TV no video games, no electric or money required!!
Grandpa would pass the time by fighting other boys, beating each other to a bloody pulp and laughing about it all day after. But if that’s not your style Grandma used to go to the opera house and watch plays. Did you know community theater has always been a cheap entertainment? $15 at the door or offer to help clean after the play was her usual Friday night out.
Then there’s things like fishing, catching lizards, sewing, reading the bible, throwing mud at boys, tie a rope on a tree to swing around, etc…
Believe it or not boredom is not a new invention, people have always been creative to pass the time- I’m sure you can come up with something too.
Never trust politics especially when you agree with them. They will generally always let you down. Who knew this? Grandma!!
Picture this 1929 Germany, everyone is broke, unemployment has reached 40%, communism is trying to take over the country, and everyone is talking about a strange man named Adolf Hitler. “Fix inflation” he says. “Get rid of communism” he shouts. “Destroy all forms of evil in Germany” he tells the crowds of thousands cheering.
Oh sure grandma was poor too and he had loads of good ideas, which is why everyone loved him… but at 8 years old grandma told her father “he only wants to get rid of the communist so he can take control of the banks”.
That’s about the sum of what happened with him.
During Hitlers time in Germany, grandma grew up into a young adult with all her friends. She did what every teenage girl does, dated boys, went to dances, dressed up, slumber parties, worried about grades in school… (at least as much as any teenage girl does). When the Russians invaded Germany and Hitler was done, everyone was in a panick while grandma was falling in love with grandpa. Truly it seemed to barely phase her that the whole continent was completely leveled by bombs.
When she came to the states she found presidents running for office wernt much different then Hitler vs the Communist- but she particularly liked Kennedy and Ragen.
Then of course there was the German environment of Jewish prejudice. Grandma worked for a Jewish owned chocolate factory as a little girl. As far as she was concerned the Jews were good people for helping her family when they needed it. Then theres concentration camps, she had no idea it was even going on. She thought Jews were going to Israel like anyone else at the time. Otherwise she didn’t think they were evil people or Hitler would go as far as slaughtering them. She like many Germans didn’t fully believe concentration camps even existed either- again she didn’t trust the Allied forces propaganda anymore then German propaganda. Well why should she, they were executing people needlessly and siding with Russia- only to go to war with Russia just 5 years after ww2. How does anyone know what to believe…. one verse out of the bible talks about this:
Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. – Psalm 146:3
Put your trust in God not a political candidate. The government isn’t there to fix your problems, you are there to fix your own problems.
The Devils Box
This comes more from my grandparents parents. When silent movies were just coming out in the 20s people thought it was satanic. When television came out people thought it was the mark of the beast!!
This sounds crazy now but let me tell you, they were on to something.
Here we have a box that preys on people with Illusions, photo editing, music, and distraction from reality. HELLO!! The entire bases of TV entertainment is to entertain people by manipulating their emotions- satanic indeed. Here is what the soviets were using for propaganda to brainwash people in russia. Here is were corporations pump advertisements into your brain. Here is the thing that makes people look like zombies in their seat while receiving ‘programing’.
Well TV has come a long way since 1920s, now we have it in our computers and pockets, we check up with our friends on it, we do our bank with it, we take photos with it, email, watch ‘reality tv’ with it, we write BLOGS with it!!
On average we stare at a screen almost all the time, TV is not just in our living room- it’s everywhere.
There are even people who can’t stand to look at the real world because their iPhone have better pixels and resolution then the real world.
Think of how much brainwashing that actually entails. If only the soviets in communist russia thought of led and amold screens first… they would force feed it to people everywhere, and make it completely affordable, and probably start up a social network to monitor the way people talked to each other. They may even secretly collect data from a search engine to see what people are looking up and reading about. :cough cough:
If you think Satan wouldn’t take full fledged advantage of this you must also think he’s stupid.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
If we should learn anything through history we must ask the question: ‘How did Adolf Hitler deceive the whole nation of Germany?’ the reason this question is so important is because if we should enter the end times, you (and everyone else) will be very much deceived- in like manner to the Germans. You as a christian have been called to come out of this world not be apart of it, ask yourself- what does that mean? unfortunately, many of you havnt a clue of either these questions. You think you know, and to be fair you may have half of the answer- but sadly many don’t and so I felt compelled to spell it out. There is a brief background before getting to the point, I advise not to skip ahead.
Adolf Hitler did not have to try too hard.Germany was primed already for him.
Through out the 20’s, during the period known as Wiemar republic, Germany was broke- dirt broke. The masses crammed
down leftist Socialism as the solution- some turned even to communist ideas. For 11 years from 1919-1930 Germany’s situation would continuously go from bad to worse. Unemployment went to a staggering 40%, many suspected it was alot higher due to people giving up on filing unemployment. Inflation was rampant, a loaf of bread was 500,000+ marks (this being the days before debit cards) people had to replace wallets with briefcases to go shopping. Burning bills in the stove was cheaper then buying coal to heat the house. All the while the politicians shouted out “Progress” and “Change”- meanwhile those same politicians would knowingly create policies to destroy the country. The German patriots and nationalists often met together discussing what the socialist and communist politicians were doing. A young man, Adolf Hitler would often hear these men out. It was painfully obvious by 1926 the government wasn’t helping and the problem was liberalism. Adolf Hitler took it upon himself to restart the National Socialist Party from late 1800’s. The party was never ver popular before, he managed to get it back up with just 5 members. Hitler would then begin his political campaign.
What kinds of things did Adolf Hitler tell people so they would vote for him?
Hitler began public speaking in 1926-1927 with just 5 fellow community organizers. He held conferences at hotels, stood on his soap box in the streets, went to banquets and coffee shops. Where ever there was an ear Hitler made sure to do it on the cheap. He then decided to change tactics- part of the problem with public speaking is when you don’t tell people something they will later hear from someone else, nothing you say to them will stick. Adolf Hitler realized this and decided it was better to start using pamphlets- to reach the broadest audience possible. The more people who hear what he has to say, the more they will talk to each other about it. (He wrote a whole chapter on propaganda in ‘Mein Kampf’ detailing his tactics very extensively) He told people things like ‘The German people deserve better, a restoration of national pride’ and ‘My struggle to liberate the German people from the grips of communism needs your help’. From 1926 – 1930 (in just 4 years) Adolf Hitlers ideas of patriotism and far right ideas spread through the nation like crazy. He was an excellent speaker, and he also had a solid political plan.
What was Adolf Hitlers Political Plan?
What germans loved about Hitler most was he knew how to fix all the problems of the Wiemar republic. The solutions were so simple, but the first thing that had to be done was get rid of all the other political parties. Socialism and Communism was the reason Germany was in this mess- obviously since they were the only other political parties, getting rid of them just made sense right? Hitler made it clear this was essential, because any thing he tried to do would be blocked by socialist and communist votes in the German government. Oh but this comes with fixing Germany by creating a dictatorship- a tiny matter that did not phase the German public one bit. See the Germans were so desperate and poor, they were willing to elect anyone that sounded like they knew what they were talking about. Hitler was correct, Socialist and communist had to go, but does the means justify the outcome? Was there another way? 2 questions Hitler never asked the public, and when his plan took affect it was too late for the public to ask themselves.
So what does this have to do with end times?
Short answer, Everything. See the antichrist is coming on the platform of peace and safety, not death and destruction. Hitler is simply a perfect model of how these things go. Oh yes Hitler did a fine job fixing Germany’s problems, He forced private businesses to hire people- completely eliminating unemployment from 40%-0 in just 2 years. Hitler also eliminated crime in a short time- even the theives in the streets were happy to have a job. He brought inflation down and set up a “Inflation central Control Office” that regulated the price of every commodity so inflation would never happen again. Everyone Loved Hitler for many very good reasons. (It’s easy to read this and snub your nose at them, but consider these are real peoples lives- its too easy to be flip reading about them in a short blog). Assuming every human being wants more money, a decent job, and not alot of troubles- well this is the kinds of things a leader would have to do to make that happen. They called him the “Savior of Germany” simply because he truly did save Germany from utter ruin. Though Hitler went a lot further then this (A LOT further) he made it a point to not make people “Feel” like every thing the people watched on tv, read, worked with, went to school with, their doctor, and many others were not some form of agent or propaganda piece issued from him. He had an emphasis on keeping a “light touch”. I tell you right now to take notes, because this is how the Antichrist will come only on a larger/global scale.
What Do I want you to take from this?
The Germans were primed for nationalism before they fell into it- Socialism and communism was for them a means to an end. Once the whole country was swept by the tides of extreme liberalism, they found themselves loathing it so much they were easily swayed to the ideas of the far right. What I see today, virtually everywhere on facebook (primarily christians), is people doing this exact thing right here in America. On every election year you have a choice the left winged Democrat or the right winged Republican. (Picture the tides of the sea swaying back and forth) And almost every election year, people become so tired of the previous party so they go vote for the other.With this we see massive waves of propaganda coming to us from all directions. Like a flood wave crashing on the shore its “Pro Guns” “Green Energy” “Gay Marriage” etc… Some of these even go into deep conspiracies, many dont even have a bases in fact. Moreover, since most Americans started going online, this propaganda has become so aggressive. There is virtually no way to turn it off, we see it all the time. So much so, even the way people talk to each other is different (when they talk to each other). Ever notice in the 90’s people didnt talk as much about political issues as they do now? It’s nearly impossible anymore to have a casual conversation with someone with out them bringing up something Obama said.
What this tells me is, most Americans
- Put more hope, trust, and faith in politicians then God or even just themselves to fix their problems. (Statist Mentality)
- Beginning to not even know the difference between fact or fiction anymore- Convinced fiction is fact and vice verse’.
- Ideas sway to and fro believing only what the last youtube video they watched told them
This is such a dangerous way to think, combined with ignorance- many Americans are flinging around propaganda pieces like wild fire, not even knowing it. This is exactly How Hitler Rose to power, this is also how the communist orchestrated the Bolsheviks- it wasnt just the leaders it was primarily the people. Some of you asked why there is so much Hamas support in Europe and America- I tell you they didn’t get their ideas from nowhere, or on their own. Yet they dont care most of their ideas come from a handful of Muslim Brotherhood websites from Iraq, Egypt, Iran, and Syria during the recent Arab Spring. No one says anymore ‘I need to fact check our sources’- no one says “I’d like to look at the background of this guy”- this is called (by the communist party of USSR) “Social Conditioning”. My friends, many of you are already drowning in the tides of deception. Even as you oppose liberalism you are swept up.
What Can I do?
- Fact Check your information before accepting it as fact- do background checks on journalist etc. It’s the boring part of research but if youre just ‘learning for entertainment’ then youre not really learning- your most likely just getting your head filled with nonsense.
- Dont be so focused on what this or that politician is saying- take it down a few notches- control your enthusiasm
- Learn the difference between propaganda and facts. Usually if it’s made into a video, its propaganda (theres your first clue) I noticed lately if it sounds kinda like an Apple commercial its a good second clue. Third realize Documentaries are not real- at least lately. Documentaries made before 1990 tried to be as accurate as possible, do some digging they’re fairly easy to search by year.
- Know what the bible says!! The biggest thing- Today we have so many people like End Times Enthusiasts, Joel Osteen, and TB Joshua who will tell you this and that- in truth they dont even know their bible as literally as they say- often they’re just interested in a thumbs up click and a donation. These will sway you into so much deception you wont even know what you’re reading when you read the bible (i’m pretty sure there’s a psychological term for this). Long story short, The better you know what the bible says on a variety of subjects, the better you are going to be at spotting a false teacher/prophet.
I might even recommend reading that chapter in Mein Kampf about propaganda- The reason being modern propagandist took notes from both Communists and Nazi’s. Hitler was very detailed, but brief, about how he and the communists used propaganda, I’ll be sure to insert a link below if your interested in learning from original sources. Also because so many end times enthusiasts prey on “The Mark of the Beast” and “The Antichrist” I will refer you to my article on the subject from the literal perspective. I like to just tell people “Dont listen to anything untill the third temple is announced to be built”, However thats not good enough for some so I’ll pick the whole thing apart in a link below. If you don’t click on anything AT LEAST checkout the film “The Art of Deception” below.
“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” (Psalm 146:3-5)

Adolf Hitler- “Mein Kampf” Chapter VI
As a foot Note I would Like to draw your attention to specific passage from “Mein Kampf” Chapter 6. What I’d like you to do as an Excersize is think about a recent ‘Social Documentary’ you may have watched either on TV, Youtube, or Netflix. Hydrofracking, or Zeitgiest for example- would any of that reminisce to this passage? :
“A similar situation prevails with what we today call propaganda.
The function of propaganda does not lie in the scientific training of the individual, but in calling the masses’ attention to certain facts, processes, necessities, etc., whose significance is thus for the first time placed within their field of vision.
The whole art consists in doing this so skillfully that everyone will be convinced that the fact is real, the process necessary, the necessity correct, etc. But since propaganda is not and cannot be the necessity in itself, since its function, like the poster, consists in attracting the attention of the crowd, and not in educating those who are already educated or who are striving after education and knowledge, its effect for the most part must be aimed at the emotions and only to a very limited degree at the so-called intellect.
All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. But if, as in propaganda for sticking out a war, the aim is to influence a whole people, we must avoid excessive intellectual demands on our public, and too much caution cannot be exerted in this direction.
The more modest its intellectual ballast, the more exclusively it takes into consideration the emotions of the masses, the more effective it will be. And this is the best proof of the soundness or unsoundness of a propaganda campaign, and not success in pleasing a few scholars or young aesthetes.
The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses. The fact that our bright boys do not understand this merely shows how mentally lazy and conceited they are.
Once we understand how necessary it is for propaganda to be adjusted to the broad mass, the following rule results:
It is a mistake to make propaganda many-sided, like scientific instruction, for instance.
The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out.”
It never fails to amaze me how often this question is raised by even Christians, yet many find themselves with a unsatisfactory answer. Why do we need to be saved by Jesus? Whats the point of this being the central thing for becoming Christian? How does submitting to Christ allow us to go to heaven? Why is Jesus called “The Lamb”, why did he have to die on the cross?
There’s many questions that surround this very topic. It all began 6 thousand years ago. As for the term itself “Covered by the blood of Jesus”- it is a poetic simplification of a complex issue.
It all began from Eve eating the fruit from the tree of Knowledge. Here we see the first sin. This was considered sin because Eve (and Adam) were given 1 rule, that was not to eat the fruit. By eating the fruit anyway, Eve knowingly disobeyed God- Thus bringing Sin into the world. The trouble I think many wrestle with this is- why would this be such a big deal it’s only a fruit- Why condemn the world to hell over that simple stupid thing? God gave us free will right from the start however he did not give us the knowledge of good AND evil. When Eve ate the fruit she choose to disobey God and go against Gods perfect creation and Gods will. conceivably, In doing so she learned she can do what she wants- even if God says ‘Dont do it’.
Later on in the Bible Jesus talks a lot about things like “Weeds of The Field” and we also see references later in Genesis that Sin multiplies and spreads. So here is how Sin works according to the Bible. It began from Eve as a tiny act, a bit like a seed. Through out genesis we see sin as a weed grow into Cain killing his brother. In just a few generations we come to the days of Noah where the seed has grown into many weeds. It has spread itself and multiplied all over the face of the Earth. God finds himself in the position there is no hope for man, and its better to just make a clean slate and start over. Picture dandelions taking over a back yard. The grass is out numbered by dandelions and eventually disappears to just one lonely blade, this blade was Noah. So there you have it, the “Idea” of disobedience was a seed in Eves mind, It was watered, spread out, and took over the whole field like a weed. Now we we have things like nuclear war and terrorism. This is the nature of sin in humanity and throughout the bible we see subtle examples of god stepping in to curb sin (but thats too much for now).
So we skip ahead to Abraham a wee bit later. Abraham gets together with God and comes up with a way to atone for sins. Sacrificing a Lamb to God. God and Abraham make a deal spelling out how this should be done, the criteria involved, what steps to take, what Lamb to pick, etc… Think of this as Abraham’s contract with God in standard legal format. Man can be forgiven of sins. Then there was Moses who gives us the 10 Commandments, along with Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers. All of these amount to 613 mitzvot (Commandments/Laws). You can read a full list by clicking here. See at this point it isn’t enough to be able to atone for sins, God wants to make sure the moral path is spelled out. Essentially he gives us a guide of whats a sin and what is not a sin. Though God himself tells us no matter how hard we try, even if we succeeded in living a life according to these rules, we will still fall short because Sin is much apart of human nature. Thus we still need sacrificial lambs, but at least for now we have a clear definition of what is right and wrong from God himself.
Secularists in particular do not understand this concept as for them “Morality is Relative”. Indeed it is not relative – Hitler for example believed he was a good guy didn’t he- For us looking at him not so much. The devil himself believes he is a good guy. Look at yourself, you are a good person right? Everyone says they are a good person, because of this everyone is in the same boat with Hitler. By who’s standards are you a good person, your own or a perfect beings?
As the old testament continues we see prophetic “Glimpses” of a coming Messiah. It is particularly noticeable in the book of Isiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and sprinkled lightly in Daniel. 1st and 2nd Samuel and Kings also touch on it a bit, and there are a many others. (If I were to cite references here I would have to literally insert the whole of the Old Testament and so I want to keep this short). Suddenly, we come to the Books of Matthew, Luke, Mark and John. These are the 4 books in the Bible (each a different disciples version) that talk about Jesus’s life. Collectively, these 4 show Jesus was the son of God, that he lived a perfect life, and he fulfilled the many prophecies of the Messiah. To the Jews, they had a twisted view of the prophecies and the role of the messiah that they did not recognize him as a Messiah. The joke (if we can call it that) was on them, as they perfectly fulfilled the prophecies by killing Jesus for no reason. Indeed, Jesus did not break any law of God or of Israel, or even of Rome- He was executed as an innocent man. So this is what makes Jesus a Sacrificial Lamb and by the law of Moses the authority to Judge sin. This is where we can understand why we need Jesus to atone for our sins. God sent Jesus, his only son, down to be sacrificed as a Lamb to the whole world, instead of salvation for just the Jews. Thus, Creating a brand new contract agreement with man. When you bow your head and ask Jesus into your heart, you are signing a contract that roughly says:
I realize I am a sinner as described in Gods law, by default I am worthy of hell. Jesus, by fulfilling the laws of Moses and prophecy, Lived a perfect life and is the only one (recognized by the law of Moses) who can issue this user agreement. The undersigned recognizes Jesus by fulfilling the law is the only one to issue a new law, of which he says “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” John 13:34. God agrees to amend the law to conform to Jesus’s terms and conditions. Jesus agrees to remit payment on the undersigned debts of sins, and allows the undersigned into his fathers kingdom. After review of terms the undersigned agrees to these terms and conditions. This contract, is henceforth kept in heavens records, the undersigned has his name in Jesus’s book of Life. Aka. ‘The Lambs Book of Life”. X_______________________________________ (Insert Signature Here)
Why is this such a big deal? It is because a sinner is completely a good person in his own eyes, He can not simply bow his head and ask for salvation. Its too much for him, thats why so many Christians preach it down peoples throat. The more a sinner hears “Repent” the more they say to themselves “Im perfect the way I am” or “I’m going to heaven because I deserve it”, no you have to bow your head and come to Christ- if you cant even do that simple thing, why do you deserve to go to heaven? God made you and gave you life, and a planet where you can enjoy that life- he doesn’t owe you anything much less eternal life or heaven.
The definition of “Grace”- as the bible explains to us is: people are so full of sin god can barely stand the sight of us sometimes, however he is willing to give us the opportunity to join him for eternity anyway. All we have to do is accept his Son. He gave us this offer because he loves us, even though we don’t deserve it.
But then there is a tiny tiny problem a christian might see with this contract. We do not have to follow the laws of Moses as per our contract agreement with Christ. Indeed Jesus himself tells us:
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-19
Later on Jesus tells us there is only one commandment now, this whole thing is contradictory isn’t it. Especially when Jesus also telling us those following the law are under a curse, because they can not fulfill it anyway or atone for their own sins. If you have some time I refer you to the following 2 videos:
Now see – Christ Law in Action:
So I bring this down to the bottom line. “Covered by the blood of Jesus”- is a poetic simplification of all that I’ve said.
It is because we are all sinners we can not have our own salvation. God loves us so much he gave us an easy contract to sign with him so we may have eternal life and go to heaven. The laws of moses are a fixed reference point on how to love one another, though we are no longer subject to it. I hope I answered your question of why we need Jesus. Don’t be afraid to comment below with any questions you might have, I am all to happy to answer them. If you are not saved by Christ I hope this has come to you as a wake up call. Maybe you don’t know how, maybe you just cant find the right words, Again comment below I will be happy to help, though I’m sure any christian would be happy to help- simply ask any 2 billion +/- of us. God bless you beloved.
If you made it this far down, you may as well take the next step in reading ‘I’m saved, Now What?’

My English paper, I love it so much I thought Id want to keep it somewhere. we were supposed to write about a place, then make a poem out of what we wrote:
Hidden on the boarder of Switzerland and Germany, in France, is a region called Alsace. Many never heard of it, but it is like a fairy tale. Beautiful gardens and villages make up the region, but most of all wine. Small streets flow through every town, cobble stone with buildings as old as Europe- Canals and gondolas being the only public transportation. The people live simple day to day lives- most work at a winery. In the summer, the towns are littered with flowers everywhere. The region started with ancient Rome looking to expand their wine production- at the time most of Europe was just a wilderness. Many of the early settlers were Christians looking to escape early church persecution in Rome. Even today the demographics show 100% of the population is still christian, many even keep to the House Church tradition of the early church as written in the book of Acts of the Bible. In the past 2 thousand years, the rest of Europe would have many wars and towns burned or bombed and rebuilt- to be burned or bombed again. However, Alsace has never seen a bomb or riot even during WW2 when all of Europe would end up as rubble. Amazingly as it was directly in the path of Nazi Germany’s march to Paris, it was completely untouched by Hitlers wrath, for reasons he never specified- though the order was to burn all of France along the way. Possibly the most beautiful and undermined area in Europe to see is Alsace in France.
At last I found Alsace!
A hidden gem that is uncondemned,
Where tradition far pass the Nations, a time and place in isolation.
A place where beauty is mixed with dreams, Proof imagination can bend the seams.
The townsmen go to work, at the vineyard by the brook.
The flowers celebrate the good inside, the Roman tradition of love for wine.
My gondola float through a river of serenity, all the while I’m lost in the scenery.
For all my cares could drift astray, in this place so far away.
Let the Devil have the world but here he dare not go,
Heaven had confirmed, for truly this is Gods abode.
The Swiss may have their skis, Paris might have their cheese, Germans may do as they please –
but there is nowhere I’d rather be!
