The Existence of God

Some Things to Consider: Consider the Heavens: The north is empty. Earth hangs on nothing (Job 26:7). The circle of the earth (Isaiah 40:22). All rain runs into rivers then into the sea only to return again as rain (Ecclesiastes 1:7). The four winds (Ezekiel 37:9). The four seasons (Ecclesiastes 3:1). There are paths in the seas – waves flow to the beach every 300 feet (Psalm 77:19). Air has weight (Job 28:25). The stars are fixed (Judges 5:20). Sand contains and bounds the oceans (Jeremiah 5:22). Consider these things! There must be a designer. Without God there would be no beginning or creation. “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17) By Him all things exist and consist!

Is There a God? – It is hard for man to believe in something that he cannot see, touch, smell or feel (1 Corinthians 2:14). Many may ask the questions, “Where is God?” “Why does God permit sickness or death?” Some just deny that there is a God and openly state, “There is no God.” The Bible is not written to prove the existence of God. The Bible just simply states the fact that God does exist. He is the one and only true God. Christians just believe the simple fact that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). A person who is blind may deny that there is a moon, but the moon just keeps on reflecting the sun’s light. If a person will just stop and think, he can see that even the heavens declare the glory of God and His handiwork (Psalm 19:1). The Bible plainly states that it is the fool who denies the existence of God. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1). Here is a book! Someone must have written it. There is a car! Someone had to build it. Someone had to create the trees, moon, sun and stars. There had to be a designer and maker!

Who is God? God is God! God is a supernatural being who is higher and more than man. God is the creator of all things. Man was made to worship God (John 4:24). What comes into your mind when you think of God? As you learn more about the attributes of God, you will freely worship and serve Him. If you will simply be conscious of God daily, you will daily follow Him. God created and He is the creator (Genesis 1:1; Romans 11:36; I Corinthians 6:20). God also has a personality of love, kindness, grace, knowledge, and feelings. All idols are void of personality that knows, feels or responds. There is only one God (Isaiah 45:6; I Timothy 2:5). God has revealed Himself to man from the Bible!

The ONLY place to learn about God is from the Bible (Deuteronomy 30:11-16; Joshua 1:8; II Timothy 2:15). God can also be seen in His nature and heavens. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalm 19:1).

Bible Fact: No Other Gods – Idols are disqualified as being the one god because they have been made by someone and thus have a beginning. “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else” (Isa. 45:5-6).

Bible Fact: God is the Lord God Jehovah. The name I AM WHO I AM” only belongs to the Lord Jehovah God. As you consider His greatness, you should fall down in fear and awe of this One who possesses all authority and greatness (Exodus 3:13-15). He is God. God was alone before the beginning. He was self-contained, self-sufficient, self-satisfied; in need of nothing. Angels and human beings were not necessary or essential to Him in any way. The creating of them when He did, added nothing to God essentially. God is self-sufficient; without the need of anyone or anything. He changes not (Malachi 3:6), therefore His essential glory can be neither manifested nor diminished. He is God.

Bible Fact: God Created All Life. “And God saw every thing that he had made… the heavens and the earth were finished…on the seventh day God ended his work and rested.” (Genesis 1:31- 2:1-2). God created all life. Without God there would be no life. God created you with an everlasting living soul (Genesis 2:7). God created Heaven and Hell (Genesis 1:1). God created a way for you to go to Heaven (John 14:6; John 3:16). You exist because of God. God was under no constraint, no obligation, no necessity to create. That He chose to do so was purely a sovereign act on His part, caused by nothing outside Himself, determined by nothing but His own mere good pleasure.

Bible Fact: Before the beginning, there was no heaven or earth. There were no angels to hymn His praises; no universe to be upheld by the word of His power. There was nothing, no one, but God; and that, not for a day, a year, or an age, but from everlasting past to everlasting future. He is God! It is impossible to bring the Almighty under obligations to the creature. Such an One as God is to be revered, worshiped, adored and obeyed. God does not need man, but man needs God. God is unsearchable! The more you study about God the more you realize that there is still much more you do not understand and you will never fully comprehend. He is God.

A World Without God – Humanism

Consider the lilies of the field (Matthew 6:28). Think about nature that God provides. He dresses and cares for the lilies God is faithful in providing your breath of air from plant life. Man cannot change the laws of God, but only can adapt to it. God makes everything consist and exist (Colossians 1:17).

Humanism is a philosophy dedicated to human interests without God. What is the first law of the Ten Commandments? (Exodus 20:3-5). Humanism challenges and denies the existence of God. The purpose of humanism is to create a world centered upon human interest without God. Humanism seeks to remove God from public schools, education, government and politics. Humanism seeks to weaken the Bible until all authority is diminished. The world demands positive proof before they will believe in God, but natural man cannot believe in something that he cannot see, touch or feel. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God…neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14). The Christian simply believes, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). The Bible is not a textbook that attempts to prove the existence of God — the Bible simply states the fact that God exists. The Bible is the only book to reveal God and His plan for mankind. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12). The general public may scoff and deny the existence of God, but this does not change the fact of His existence. Today’s philosophy is that there are many different religions with the same God. Christians are under a mandate to preach the Gospel to everyone including people of all religions (Mark 16:15).
