Now more than ever, with the rapture approaching, Christians must reach out to relatives, friends, neighbors, and our community at large with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have left in our nonchalant wake and compliance with the world a confused and lost generation of atheists and nones (a group of people who have no religious affiliation.) In reconciling the unsaved with the church, we will have to spoon-feed most of these lost folks with the word of God.
Some may even need convincing of God’s existence by juggling their thought processes and imaginations – rational thought is diminishing rapidly in our present world. We may even need to go back to the very basics – like God is….
In trying to describe the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I had to decide which superlative fit Him best. Words like Majestic, Powerful, Mighty, Profound, Awesome, Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient just didn’t cut it, so I chose the one word that best describes Him to me – although we could come up with hundreds of other words such as gracious, kind, caring and Just.
Aside from all the above mentioned, He is also Father (not Mother), a Jealous God; God is also said to be a flaming fire in the Bible. The description I like best is that God is Love, and although our Divine Creator is tolerant and slow to anger, he isn’t to be trivialized nor challenged.
Consider this; before creating the earth and its inhabitants, God had already created various “Heavens” with angelic inhabitants. The God of heaven and earth is not constrained by time since he always was and always will be. This is something that is hard for us earthbound inhabitants to understand since we are constrained by time. But when we consider that He threw (or did He speak) the Sun and planets out into space and name them, we can begin to see His enormity. He created trillions of stars and many galaxies and continues to do so in the ever-expanding universe. You can see the awesome images called “Hand of God” through the Hubble telescope on the internet.
For those who insist that God doesn’t exist, here are some interesting proofs that He does indeed exist. God has left clues of His existence everywhere.
He created the Sun to light the day and the reflection of the moon to light the night; the tiniest microbe that can only be seen through a microscope; water, dry land, trees, and vegetation; all animals and birds as well as mankind – while most scientists can barely make an omelet. Can you say awesome or magnificent or something of the like?
Our ingenious Creator created various species of fruits and veggies and everything else made available on this planet. Could you or anyone else have done better? Trees for oxygen, vegetation to cleanse the planet of dangerous gases that in turn also give us oxygen, and His genius goes on and on.
Is it any wonder the Bible says, “The fool hath said in his heart – there is no God.”
Yet, our illegitimate president has even forgotten that such a God exists. In a recent speech, Joe Biden hesitated in the middle of his speech to articulate this supposed belief of such a one and flubbed the known entity’s positional name (God) that had been wiped from his ever-darkening and corrupt mind. How can God acknowledge a man who is thankful for nothing and has even forgotten that His Creator exists? Tragically, like a third of the angels of heaven, Joe has lost his way.
It’s not like God didn’t give us a multitude of clues. Some that I like best are “the hand of God” image taken by the Hubble telescope, and the hummingbird tree whose blossoms look like hummingbirds hanging all over the tree (I have one among the orchard of exotic tropical fruit trees.)
Then there is a book I read, “The Gold of Exodus,” a few years ago that told the fantastic story of a man having found the trail of the Jews who left Egypt under Moses command — burned altars, blackened mountaintop and all. Speaking of burning: at the place where the Hebrews gathered to cross the Red Sea, a huge area of molten sand has been found on the beach where the pillar of fire stood while leading the way to the crossing. Chariot wheels have been discovered in the same area encrusted with crustations! As if that weren’t enough, Satellite images show where the earth was trampled by over a million people during that period of time on the route of the exodus. You can check these things out on the internet for yourself.
Another footprint of God mentioned in the Bible can be found along the shore of the Dead Sea where Sodom and Gomorrah once stood. Although there is nothing there today but mounds of salt. There are pockets of brimstone (sulfur) along the shore where these ancient cities once existed; one can go there today and dig out balls of sulfur embedded in the remains of those wicked cities that were destroyed by God. The Bible tells us that God destroyed these twin cities as an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter (2 Peter 2:6).
Our Creator also has a keen sense of creative ingenuity considering the anomaly of the Duckbill Platypus and the Snowy Owl, or the mysterious Machu Pichu, the love between a man and a woman, and the list goes on and on – endlessly.
I’m sure there are many more such examples of the reality of God. The Bible says, “You will find God if you search for Him with your whole heart.”
The one attribute of God that really stands out is His love for mankind. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
