Matthew 7:7 - "Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you"

Mark 11:22-25 ~ Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. For this reason I tell you: When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for. And when you stand and pray, forgive anything you may have against anyone, so that your Father in heaven will forgive the wrongs you have done.”

Must-see in 2017 - Tallest statues of Jesus Christ in the World


This is 2017s latest and most comprehensive list of Tallest Jesus statues dedicated around the world to our Saviour. How many did you think there were..10..15..20? We've got a whole 78 of them from the Largest Jesus statue to the one upto 5 m tall. A lot of online lists floating on the net bearing wrong information based on bias, lack of effort, miscalculation and unverified information from other sites. Well, we decided that christians need to know of the genuine efforts of several countries and organizations to keep the spirit and presence of Jesus Christ alive by putting huge monuments in their countries to remind people and themselves that nothing and no one is bigger than God, the Son & the Holy Spirit.

Unlike other lists we've ranked the Tallest Jesus Christ statues based solely on the height of the statues and not together with their pedestals, bases and mounds. After all, Jesus alone matters everywhere and besides we don't like cheats who put an antenna on top of their structures to claim records.

This list is also a tribute to the artists, technical specialists and workers who've designed and created these beautiful monuments, and blessed photographers who've captured their beauty and magnitude. Unlike some other websites, we think no statue of Jesus Christ is done in bad taste. Some countries like Mexico,Peru, Philippines,Argentina, Brazil and Colombia have established their intention to maintain their christian status and we salute their pride, conviction and strength to acknowledge Christ in such a monumental manner in front of the world.

Something we'd say is truly lacking in the European and Western world who are hardly there prominently anywhere in this list with an exception or two.It's very sad that red-tape and bias against recognizing a Saviour like Jesus Christ has even made a mighty christian country like Russia which was to build a 80 m tall Christ the Teacher statue looking for reasons with it's christian orthodoxy to save face due to it's inability to fulfill its much publicized promise.And then there's catholic Croatia failing in it's ability to build the prominent 39 m high Jesus statue. It's great to see Africa's embrace of Jesus Christ and their efforts to establish monuments in his honour with the scarce resources they have.

To the non-christians who wonder how Jesus could appear so different in each country, this list is symbolic of the universal appeal of Jesus as compared to anyone that has ever lived on this earth. Period.

Footprints in the Sand ~ One night I had a dream...I dreamt I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints.I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way; But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, There is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me.The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.
