Remember the former things of old;
for I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me,
10declaring the end from the beginning
and from ancient times things not yet done,
saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
and I will accomplish all my purpose,[Isaiah 46;9-10]
In the Beginning … God.
Should we presume in the existence of God? Or can God be explained away?
The existence of God is both necessary and certain to make sense of the world around us, to define reality, to discover our true origin, to understand the purpose of our existence, to explain the immense and immeasurable wonder and glory of the universe, to pursue our eternal destiny knowing that we all must stand before the Most High God who made all things and knows all things and to whom we must one day give account.
Is there enough “evidence” to believe in the existence of God? Much less the God of the Bible?
More than you could ever know. God has revealed Himself in so many ways, not the least of which by coming in physical form as Immanuel — God with us. Yet God also reveals Himself through logic and conscience and history and archaeology and prophecy and morality and geology and astronomy and quantum mechanics and information science and genetics and the list goes on.
But logic, reason and science can only take us so far. At some point we must exercise faith in the Invisible God. After all, without faith it is impossible to please God. Not only has God provided endless evidence for His existence, but He has purposefully revealed Himself to mankind and personally invited us into a relationship through faith in the good news of God’s Son. Creation may be able to reveal to us that there is a “God.” Scripture, however, is necessary to know precisely who God is. And Yeshua — the Word made flesh — shows us what God is like in all of His grace and glory!
