We are so blessed by this post by Sister Connie Keyohara! God Bless you and yours Sister!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God. John 1:1&2
Does God exist? We’re told in Big John that “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Scripture tells us “You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you.” Jeremiah 29:13
The earth’s perfectly engineered distance from the sun, the unique chemical properties of water, DNA, and a child’s birth…these are things that point us directly to a Creator. If there’s a painting, there’s a painter. If there’s a building, there’s a builder. If there’s a creation, there’s a creator and if there is a miracle, there is a God!
Psalm 19:1 -The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Matthew, Mark, John and others, wrote that they saw the resurrection of Jesus Christ. You see if there’s five of us in a room and there’s an incident, and the police were to come to get our stories, they are going to get five different perspectives to said incident. Why? Because nobody is going to remember Word for Word or exactly what happened. People tend to remember things differently and some might call it a contradiction in stories, but actually it was written from very different perspectives. All true, but different versions.
Many people believe things they ought not to, but reject the notion of the resurrection. This should not be.
Acts 1:3 Says. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
This is why we accepted that there is such a thing as right and wrong. Good and evil. Light and darkness. God and the devil. Because you can’t have one without the other.
Then there’s AD and BC. Ad is an abbreviation of anno Domini Nostri Jesu Christi, Latin for “in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ”. The era we now call BC used to be known as “a.C.n.”, an abbreviation of “Ante Christum Natum”, which is Latin for “before the birth of Christ”. ???????? I googled this by the way.
Even time is measured by the birth of Christ.
There are lots of things that point to a creator. But you can’t take my word for it, you have to seek out scripture for yourself. There are Old Testament Prophecies that revealed what was to come.
For instance: Micah 5:2 – “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village in Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel will come from you, one whose origins are from the distant past.”
Isaiah 7:14 – “All right then, the Lord Himself will choose the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call Him Immanuel – ‘God is with us.”
And obviously, they were prophesying the birth of Christ.
There are many reasons that we should believe. I know for sure that there is a God, Beyond a shadow of a doubt.
And I know, because I just spoke to him this morning.
My prayer for you today is that you would see God’s glory and feel his presence.
