Everyone on earth no matter how righteous you may be has caused Jesus some pain. Our sins hurt Jesus more than we know.
When people mostly non-believers do bad things, they have no idea of the damage they caused. They did not know the bad things they did set off some laws that must be fulfilled, although they will not know or feel the full effect of it, because Jesus knows the human body cannot carry the burden.
I once was a non-believer and I did more of the bad things than anyone on this earth could do, but you must understand I had no idea of all the damage I was causing. There are some long-time believers who do not know how sinning is dealt with in a spiritual sense daily, they do know how unrepented sins are dealt with in the end time.
About 15 months ago fortunately or unfortunately I had the opportunity to be in spirit form, I mean a spirit without a body. I do not know if I was dead if a spirit can leave a body without the body dying, in that case, I was not dead. On the other hand, if a body has to be dead before the spirit can leave it, then I was dead, but I am alive now.
I was in this place with a lot of sinners, I knew all of the sins they did, and they knew all the sins I had done, the other sinners were all together but a long distance from me. I asked Jesus why they were not closer to the doors of hell like I was, and he answered my question with a question, so, I did not answer his question.
Then Jesus and I became one, I mean we shared the same heart, mind, feelings, emotions, etc… That is when I felt all of the pain and suffering, I caused because of my sins, and it was more than I could bear, I would have tumbled over from all of that weight.
When I realized all of the agony and suffering Jesus had to go through because of my sins, I was so overwhelmed, I told myself I could not do that to him again. It hurts me so bad today, I vowed I would not hurt him that way again. I pray he gives me the strength to never treat him that way again.
I know one of the believers’ responsibilities is to tell non-believers the good news about Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins, which is supposed to cause them to want to stop sinning. I believe it is effective in encouraging most non-believers to refrain from continuing to sin.
Jesus wanted non-believers to stop sinning when they heard the good news about him. But there are some people like me or maybe I am the only person on earth who would have never believed the message of good news about him.
I had heard the message about the good news of Jesus about a thousand times, but I never would have changed my sinning ways, just from hearing that message. I just could not believe in something I could not see or feel, I know that is sad, but that was just the way I was, I do not know how I got that way.
I am glad Jesus revealed himself to me and others like me if there are other people like me. Maybe he revealed himself to all believers, in the same manner, he revealed himself to me. I have not heard anyone say they became one with Jesus in spirit form. I know not everyone wants to reveal how they met Jesus as I do.
If all non-believers become spiritually one with Jesus, they would stop sinning almost overnight, that is one powerful tool to convert non-believers, whether they wanted to change or not, it sure worked on me. But not all non-believers need that, most can stop sinning from only hearing the word.
