If you want Joy, Real Joy...ask JESUS
to come into your heart and find His
LOVE and PEACE!
Identity of Jesus
Jesus is declared in scripture (Word of God) to be the Great I AM......He answered the questioning pharisees (religious people of that day) “I AM”. He said to the Samaritan woman at the well who spoke of a Messiah (sent one) to come “I am He”. An ancient prophet spoke of this coming one as “The Prince of Peace, Mighty God and Wonderful Counselor”. No-one ever counseled like Jesus. We see that with the woman at the well and various people who came to Him.
After all, many of us go into this stage of life all the time. You might well call death the 'curtain' between Scene 1 and Scene 2. We're in Scene 1 now....we play the part. There's no doubt about that. The Coming of Christ might well be called the 'interval' between this establishment and the next – the commencement of entering into the new.
The Word of God clearly states that “whoever believes in Jesus will not perish – banish in a state of chaos – but have everlasting life – in His Presence, and abundance of riches in Glory”.

going to be content with the things

How Closely do you Know Him?
is about a person, it's always about a person – not a theory or a
technique. So build your confidence around the Person of God. Spend
time in His Presence. This is the way we come to know Him. Acquaint
yourself with Scriptures that speak of His Goodness, His Grace and
of us need a clear picture of Him – situations and circumstances
may have clouded our Image of Him. Even lots of sermons can do that.
Especially if they don't portray Him well.
