You Can KNOW There Is A God!

The Bible makes two claims concerning the existence of God...

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 3:16 NKJV)

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:21 NKJV)

If these two verses alone are true we should be able to find verifiable evidence of that inspiration. If we can find no evidence of that inspiration then the Bible is not true and there is no God.

The Bible itself says our faith, our belief, is based on evidence...

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV)

Let's look at the dictionary's definition of "evidence."

ev·i·dence –noun

  • 1. that which tends to prove or disprove something; ground for belief; proof.
  • 2. something that makes plain or clear; an indication or sign: His flushed look was visible evidence of his fever.
  • 3. Law. data presented to a court or jury in proof of the facts in issue and which may include the testimony of witnesses, records, documents, or objects.
  • The Bible is not a science manual, yet every scientific statement in it was written some 2,000 to 5,000 years BEFORE science accepted them as being true. No scientific statement in scripture has been proven to be untrue up to this point in time.

    Let us examine a few evidences of God’s inspiration found within His Word that prove He exists...

    Perhaps the most powerful evidence for the existence of God is found in Genesis 1:9...

    Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. (Genesis 1:9 NKJV)

    Some 5,000 years ago the author of Genesis said the earth was one land mass and the water was one mass. Any geography student today can prove that is not the case. When we look at pictures of Earth taken from space we can see there are seven major continents and seven major bodies of water. Have you heard the saying, "Sail the Seven Seas?"

    On face value we can see there is a major difference between what the Bible says and what we know to be absolutely true.

    There is a scientific theory scientists call "Plate Tectonics." Scientists consider anything they believe to true yet they cannot actually prove or see happening, a "theory." Scientists believe that at one time all land was one mass they refer to as Pangea.

    When you look at pictures from space you can see that if you had the power you could push North and South Africa right up against North and South America and they would fit barring some shore erosion. Australia would slide right up and fit and so on until you had one large land mass.

    How is it possible the author of Genesis, supposedly Moses, knew this some 5,000 years before science advanced the theory?

    Someone obviously told him and that Someone is who we call God...

    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 3:16 NKJV)

    And ranking right up there in power is Job 38:7...

    When the morning stars sang together,And all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:7 NKJV)

    I lived a good number of years in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan during a time when it had very little light pollution. On cloudless moonless nights the sky glowed with light from a cover of stars. They were simply spectacular.

    At no time, not even in the stillest of nights, did I ever hear any singing or any other sounds from the stars.

    Numerous astronomers and scientists have discovered that stars do indeed "sing." How did the author of Job, a book thought to be even older than Genesis, know that stars "sang" at least 5,000 years before scientists with all their highly advanced electronics discovered it?

    Someone obviously told him and that Someone is who we call God...

    Another amazing evidence is Job 38:16...

    “Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths? (Job 38:16 NKJV)

    Oceans contain springs. The ocean is very deep. Almost all the ocean floor is in total darkness and the pressure there is enormous. It would have been impossible for Job to have explored the “springs of the sea.” Until recently, it was thought that oceans were fed only by rivers and rain. Yet in the 1970s, with the help of deep diving research submarines that were constructed to withstand 6,000 pounds-per-square-inch pressure, oceanographers discovered springs on the ocean floors! This is now a proven fact because we have the ability to closely examine them.

    How did the author of Job know this long before science? He didn't go on vacation to the beach and rent diving gear to discover it on his own.

    The answer obviously is Someone told him and that Someone is who we call God...

    He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing. (2 Peter 1:21 NKJV)

    The earth free-floats in space, affected only by gravity. While other sources have declared the earth sat on the back of an elephant or turtle, or was held up by a mythological man known as Atlas, and often still do, the Bible alone states what we now know to be true – “He hangs the earth on nothing.”

    By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (2 Hebrews 11:3 NKJV)

    Everything is made up of invisible to the eye atoms. Science has found this to be true many years after the Bible stated it was true.

    How did the author of Hebrews know this?

    The only answer that answers the question is that someone told him. That Someone is who we call God.

    The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. (Psalm 8:8 NKJV)

    The existence of ocean currents. Three thousand years ago the Bible described the “paths of the seas.” In the 19th century Matthew Maury – the father of oceanography – after reading Psalm 8, researched and discovered ocean currents that follow specific paths through the seas! Utilizing Maury’s data, marine navigators have since reduced by many days the time required to traverse the seas.

    How did the Psalm author know of the paths in the seas some 3,000 years before it was discovered to be true? Again, someone told him and that Someone is who we call God.

    Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” (Genesis 15:5 NKJV)

    There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. (I Corinthians 15:41) NKJV)

    Not only are stars uncountable but no two are alike. Each planet in our solar system is unlike any of the others and astronomers and scientists have extensively studied space with all their highly advanced telescopes. So far, no two are alike.

    One cannot truly appreciate just how many stars there are in a cloudless, moonless night when viewed from an area where there is little light pollution from earth lighting until one sees it for their self. The sky seems to be literally filled with sparkling diamonds and those are just the ones visible to the naked eye. At first glance one would think there had to be common characteristic stars somewhere in all those.

    So far, no two have been found alike.

    Which is what the Inspirer of the Biblical writers, who we call God, claimed thousands of years ago and astronomers are just now beginning to fully understand.

    7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7) NKJV)

    In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:9) NKJV)

    The Bible says our bodies are made from the dust of the ground. Scientists have discovered that the human body is comprised of some 28 base and trace elements – all of which are found in the earth.

    While one could assume from watching a decomposing body that it turns to dust over time only science can show it actually becomes dust or earth. The Bible goes one step further and says it not only returns to the earth, it originally comes from the earth through Adam.

    There are many other scientific statements in the Bible that are scientifically accurate, or that have not been proven to be false, that were made many, many, many years before science discovered their validity.

    Not only do scientific statements show God's Inspiration in the Bible there is also the The Evidence Of God's Existence In Bible Numbers However a number is used in one book it has the same application in every one of the other 65 books.

    Colors, metals, trees, metaphors, animals and many other things all have consistent applications through all 66 books of the Bible.

    The Bible itself is Proof God Exists
