Does God Exist?
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
If ever God were going to try to make a case for himself being real and existing, I’m guessing He would have started out His book that way. Even with that said though, no where in the Bible does God ever try to prove He exists. He proves who He is, his character and attributes. Jesus takes time to show people He is God, but not that God exists.
John 8:58-59 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I A
m.” So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
When Jesus said “I Am” what He said in fact is I Am God. The great I Am is the name that God gave Moses to tell the Israelites so that they would know who sent him.
Exodus 3:13-15 Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.
Psalm 19:1-6 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
See every man knows there is a God! We see His handy work in creation and the heavens declare the glory of God. Know one will show up to the great white throne judgement and say I never knew. Because they have witnessed Gods awesome power and authority and His great wisdom in creation.
We know that this is not it, we know there is life after this!
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
Don’t just think you can mock God or ridicule Him and get away with it. God will settle the score. Either making His Son pay for your sins or making you pay for them but someone will pay.
Galatians 6:7-10 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
John 12:37-43 Though he had done so many signs before them, they still did not believe in him, so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “Lord, who has believed what he heard from us, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe. For again Isaiah said, “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.” Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory and spoke of him. Nevertheless, many even of the authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God.
Isn’t that so much the truth that we care so little about what God thinks and put great value on what people think.
Psalm 14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.
So the best thing about this is, as we share our faith with people, remembering that everyone knows there is a God some are just in deep denial. Put a higher value on what God thinks and not much thought to what people think. Lets go and spread the good news God gave us to share to fulfill Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Remember YOU ARE LOVED!!!
