Proving that God exists is really a very easy task. All we must do is take evidence that already exists and is in plain view and understand that it is evidence.
The Universe Proves That God Exists
The atheist will tell you that the universe has a naturalistic explanation for its existence. It created itself, or a prior universe is responsible for our universe. Here’s the problem: These assertions cannot be proven scientifically.
Here is what science does prove: The universe exists because of intelligence, not happenstance. The events necessary for the universe to commence are not possible by any natural process. When we examine the events that took place in less than one zeptosecond of the universe we find that extreme control was exercised over the processes that took place.
What should have resulted from the universe, as it existed at the beginning, if we remove the extreme control that took place, is a universe of extreme chaos that would have collapsed back upon itself or no life would ever have existed anywhere. You will have to read the many other articles I have written on this subject in order to understand this reality.
Here we are living in the universe that God made—for the express purpose of showing us that He exists—and we deny that it proves anything. How quaint it is that what is so obvious, is not obvious to those who are not really looking.
The Bible Proves That God Exists
Let us imagine a Being who has no beginning. If we try to stretch our minds back manifold trillions of years to understand how long God has existed, we can never get there. He simply did not start. If we take our mind back an infinite duration and imagine what God must know, it is not hard to envision that He easily knows how to create a universe like ours.
We already realize that in our present universe that is 13.799 billion years old, there may be other advanced civilizations somewhere in the universe that are billions of years further along than humans. It is not hard to imagine that they already have interstellar travel, have cured all diseases, and likely can live forever. These civilizations may be very close to having the technology to create universes themselves.
Why then is it so hard—so terrible to imagine—that a Being who has lived forever, could make all that exits? Its much easier to imagine this Being exists than to accept all this happened by accident.
The difficulty with this idea is not that such a Being could exist, but that the being that most critics imagine, is a moral Being who demands moral perfection of humans, and well, this is just too far. Human beings like doing what they like to do and they do not want anyone telling them how to live. Isn’t this the very heart of rebellion, a rejection of any authority that stifles human will?
This Being I am describing has pierced our world and made communication with us. I will not bore you with the specifics in this short article but let me say that the structure of the Bible is widely understood by many as much more than it appears on the surface. Even the Hebrew language manifests characteristics that are other worldly and may be the language of eternity itself.
The 66 books of the Bible which make up the Hebrew and Greek scriptures have multiple levels of information and technology that are built into the text which are transcendent time, space, and matter. Most people who read the Bible only see the stories that they don’t understand and have no idea what they are actually seeing. I have devoted nearly 45 years to studying the text and I realize that I have only begun to understand what these 66 books really mean.
My point is that this Eternal Being with the power and knowledge to make our universe and all life, sent us a written communication that tells us everything that we need to know about Him. Very few take the time, and have the desire to really understand what is being communicated, so they disqualify the Bible as nothing more that Bronze Age myths.
This much I do know: the Bible proves the existence of the only True and Living God.
The Person Called Jesus, The Christ, Proves That God Exists
Within the text of these 66 books I have just described, starting with the first line of the first paragraph, of the first book of the Bible, Jesus is introduced to us as the Creator. Most people think that Jesus began in the New Testament, but this is not true. The first line of Genesis 1:1, introduces us to Jesus in the Old Testament. Virtually every page of the Old Testament was written for the purpose of preparing us for the arrival of Jesus in the New Testament.
Most of the world does not believe this, nor take the time to understand that this is true. Nevertheless, the Eternal Being of Jesus Christ came into the world as a human being, 2,000 year ago, with the intention of demonstrating that God exists.
In these three simple principles, God is easily proven, but impossibly believed. God intended that the world’s intellectuals would never find Him by their intellect. Read the first chapter of 1 Corinthians. “God has chosen the foolish things to confound the wise.”
You want to know whether God really exits? You will never know if you listen to the critics and scoffers of this world. You will have to do something that is extreme and rare for a human being; open your heart and mind and start wanting to know if God exists with every fiber of your being. If you do this, you will find Him.
I know this because I began this journey in 1975. I began without any knowledge, nor religious training. I just wanted to know the truth and I didn’t listen to anyone who said I couldn’t know if God exists. I always believed that if a universe like this exists then there had to be a Being of infinite intelligence behind it. Nothing else makes any sense. The universe is the most technologically advanced machine in existence. Technical and high functioning machines are not possible except by intelligence. It was intelligence that I found in the construction of the universe and this led me to the God of the Bible, and ultimately to Jesus as the Creator of all that exists.
I hope you make your own journey and not let anyone stop you from finding the truth. He is here and anyone can know Him, if they want to know Him with every fiber of their being. Anything less and you will not find the truth.
