Evidence That Demands a Verdict

You Be the Judge & the Jury

by Pastor John Hamel


“Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? He [Jesus] said unto him, Thou sayest it.” (Mark 15:2)


Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, the King of the Jews and the world’s Promised Messiah?  Did you ever stop to realize that your eternal Destiny hinges on what you believe about this man Jesus?  I would like to present you with some “evidence” to help you reach a verdict today. 


“EVIDENCE” defined means, “The available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.”  I would now like to enter my evidence as Exhibits.


Exhibit #1.  The Supernatural Prediction And Fulfillment Of Jesus’ Birth.  700 years before its occurrence, the Prophet Micah accurately predicted that God would be birthed as a human being.  He also predicted that God-in-the-flesh would become the Ruler of Israel.  Micah even pinpointed that this man-child would be born in Bethlehem Ephrata. 


There were two “Bethlehems” in Israel when Jesus was born, one in the North, one in the Southwest.  Micah hit the Southwest location right on the head. (Micah 5:2)  Isaiah the Prophet did something quite similar 100 years earlier. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6)


Exhibit #2.  Jesus’ Absolutely Sinless Life.  The Bible reveals that Jesus was tempted by sin in every way that we are, yet He never gave in to it.  Never. (Hebrews 4:15) 


Even at His trial, after being unjustly betrayed by His best friends, illegally arrested and falsely accused, He spoke not one word against His accusers!  He remained supernaturally calm and took the heat for us deliberately. (Mark 15:1-47; John 10:18)


Exhibit #3.  Jesus’ Supernatural Healing And Delivering Power.  No one in recorded history has possessed such power before or since.  Jesus healed everyone who came of literally any disease or demonic torment, unless they would not permit Him to do so. (Matthew 8:16,17; Mark 4:23,24; 6:1-6)  He still performs Miracle healing and deliverance today whenever people dare to believe. (Luke 1:37; Hebrews 13:8) 


Jesus gave my friend, Ronald Coyne of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a miracle that enabled him to see through an empty eye socket.  He demonstrated this miracle worldwide for 43 years!  He has appeared on Geraldo Rivera, Phil Donahue, Sally Jesse Raphael, Oprah Winfrey and other TV programs many, many times.  All of those tapings are available for purchase and viewing.  See for yourself.  You can also find “The Plastic Eye Miracle” on the Internet.


Exhibit #4.  Jesus’ Supernatural Resurrection From The Dead.  Jesus is the only Messiah declared to be the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead. (Romans 1:4)  Jesus appeared to well over 500 individuals after His resurrection. (1Corinthians 15:3-8) 


Many others have had visitations of Jesus since “Bible Days.”  See the book, “I Believe In Visions,” by Dr. Kenneth Hagin.  I myself have experienced visitations of Jesus.


Exhibit #5.  Supernaturally Changed Lives.  Jesus frequently encountered demon-possessed maniacs being driven to destroy themselves and He freed them. (Mark 5:1-20)  I myself was a drug addict.  When I sought Jesus’ delivering power, I fell unconscious for NEARLY THREE FULL DAYS.  When I regained consciousness, I was God’s “Freeman.” (1Corinthians 7:22)  I have surpassed three decades of freedom! (2Corinthians 5:17)


A “VERDICT” is a decision that must be made on a disputed issue.  It’s time for yours.  I’ve presented brief, yet indisputable evidence.  The responsibility for this evidence now rests in your lap.  You be the Judge.  You be the Jury. 


If your decision is AGAINST Christ, simply say so. 


If your decision is FOR Christ, say, “Jesus, You’re my choice.” (Romans 10:13)  Your name will be recorded in God’s Book of Life. (Daniel 12:1) 


You’ll be rewarded at the Resurrection of Life. (John 5:28,29)


Be Blessed … John and Barbara Hamel
