Do You Want to Know God?

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” (Psalm 14:1a KJV).

Atheists claim there is no God because they cannot see Him (see today’s Scripture). We Christians admit that we have never seen God face-to-face and we have never heard God speak audibly to us, so how do we know God exists?

Consider this. We gather tangible data via five different “gates:” eyes, ears, a nose, taste buds, and appendages that perceive touch. However, the capacity of these “gates” is limited: data from a given source cannot be collected via all five “gates.” For example, you cannot smell this website; does it still exist? We are unable to taste voices or see air; do they exist? Our ears cannot hear gravity; yet it exists. We cannot touch the Milky Way Galaxy; yet it exists.

These five “gates” enable our bodies to interact with and perceive our natural environment, but what about invisible things? Values? Ideas? Feelings? These are spiritual, not physical, yet they exist, right?

In the same manner we do not perceive our ideas, values, and feelings through those five “gates,” neither do we use them to perceive God! God does exist because we see God through spiritual eyes, the eyes of faith.

Furthermore, we have an origin, so we know indirectly that God exists. Romans 1:20,21 says: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful.”

The Bible says that God is our Creator. If God does not exist, then neither do we! Regardless of whether or not we want to believe it, we all know that one Creator God made us. God is “not far from every one of us,” so we can know Him if we want to know Him (Acts 17:27). Do you want to know God?

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!

  1. Great post!! A good grace perspective/viewpoint to consider [2 Timothy 2:7]!

    ***************************
    1 Corinthians 2:9-14
    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

    For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

    Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

    But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
