Did you know that the greatest event in history has to do with you? Yes, and on top of that it’s your fault…

If you were surprised by the news that someone died because of you, and that someone died saying that you were to blame for their death, what would you do? You would try to find out who the person is and why he or she said that. You would be stunned, searching for an answer and wondering, “What did I do to make this person die?” We would not say: “is not my problem”.

Have the information that the Son of God died for you. God sent His Son to die for you on this Earth. And we are to blame for his death. The death of the Lord Jesus was not His fault or the Father. And I ask you: what have you done to at least know who the Son of God was and why He died?

In the Word of God it is written: “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (João 3:17-18) So, this does not mean that the whole world will be saved, what the Word says is that only those who believe will be saved. He gives opportunity to everyone, but not everyone believes in Him.

So you should, at the very least, try to understand what happened. The coming of the Lord Jesus to this world was real. He is truly risen. These are indisputable facts (biblical and extrabiblical). After the crucifixion, He appeared to over 500 people (1 Corinthians 15:6). They were witnesses who were so sure of what they saw that they were willing to die for what they saw.

Jesus existed. He walked this Earth, died on the cross, rose on the third day, left us His Word and His teachings and the opportunity for Salvation from our faults, mistakes and sins (which are already condemning us). Every error goes through a type of correction and the more serious the error, the greater the correction. And what will be the correction for us who spend our whole lives sinning? We will be judged by the Righteous Judge. To “believe in Him” is to do what He commands. Do you do what He says? It’s your choice.

You can join us on the Come & See Event on Good Friday on 7th of April.


Get ready for Holy Week

The Holy Week refers to the most important period in all of human history. And, between the 2nd and 9th of April, throughout Universal, we will experience this event.

What do you need to know:

The consequence of sin is a condemnation that will last for all eternity (Romans 6:23). Therefore, as humanity is flawed, the Lord Jesus had to take the blame in our place. So instead of us dying, He died (and through His sacrifice on the cross). This is what The Holy Week is about.

  • During Holy Week, Palm Sunday took place (in which the Lord Jesus made the “Triumphal Entry” into Jerusalem).
  • Afterwards, He went to the Temple and expelled the merchants from there, in the “Cleansing of the Temple”.
  • He also brought lessons of faith through an order given to a fig tree.
  • Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha, washed the feet of the Lord Jesus in preparation for the sacrifice to come.
  • On Thursday, the Holy Supper was held in the company of the disciples.
  • He also prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, was arrested and went through trials and torture until the cross, erected on Mount Calvary (or Golgotha). There, He took upon Himself the sins of mankind. And he shed His blood in sacrifice, because the Word of God explains that in the blood is life (Leviticus 17:11).
  • Finally, on Saturday, as victor, Christ took authority out of the hands of the devil (Colossians 2:15) and was resurrected on Sunday, appearing to some disciples.

    Do this: just as people, from time to time, look at the calendar to schedule a trip, vacation and get organized, mark this week to have a time with God. From the 2nd to the 9th of April, think about what you can move into your schedule so you don’t miss a day of Holy Week. Because it is a special moment for the person to strengthen the faith in every way”.
