Recently, I met a die-hard atheist, not in person but in a social networking site. We had a couple of argument but he is too close-minded. Even other people commenting on our posts can clearly see that my argument is strong. But I dropped the conversation because his attitude is not humility but of pride and vanity.
Truly, “the FOOL has said to his heart, “there is no God.”(Psalm 14:1)”.
Just like what C.S. Lewis once said that atheists strongly believe that there is no God and YET THEY ALWAYS ATTACK GOD. How Ironic! For this reason, I would Like to share with you seven PROOFS that GOD EXISTS.
1. Fulfilled Prophecies
There are many prophecies in the Holy Bible that were amazingly and accurately fulfilled right to the letter. God challenges His skeptics through Isaiah:
“For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from the ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, “My counsel shall stand.’” (Isaiah 46:9-10).
There are no other books in the history of man that contains future events being revealed and its record of being fulfilled. Even the Muslim Quran, claiming to be the very word of God does not contain the audacity to proclaim and fulfill prophecy.
If God indeed can predict the future even centuries before it come to pass, then we have an irrefutable and very strong evidence of God’s existence and our very salvation is at stake. The following are just some of the hundreds of prophecies found in the Bible fulfilled.
- 70 Weeks Prophecy – Daniel 9:25-27 predicted the precise year when Jesus will appear as the messiah. At exactly A.D. 27, Jesus Christ started his ministry. Daniel wrote this prophecy almost 600 years before Christ was born.
- Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream – found in Daniel 2, God revealed to Daniel the interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. The dream is about a great image that has a head of gold, chest and arms of silver, belly and thighs of bronze, legs of iron, and feet partly iron and clay. Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar that the head was his Babylonian Empire. The silver, bronze, and iron symbolize the three mighty empires that preceded Babylon. These empires are Medo-Persia, Greco-Macedonia, and the Roman Empire respectively.
- Alexander the Great, Rise to Power – one of the most astounding and most detailed prophecies in the Bible is Daniel 11 where God inspired Daniel to write about the rise and the fall of Alexander the Great. Daniel 11 was so accurate that skeptics do not question the narrative but they will just dismiss the whole account as written during the reign of the Romans. A sign of their desperation!
2. Mental and Intellectual Capacity
So what is it in man that cannot be found in animals?
It is God’s spirit dwelling in us. Animals do not possess this spirit. We are endowed by God with emotions that cannot be found in animals — animals that operate by their instinct.
The theory of evolution exponentially falls short in explaining how we end up having the superior mind that can create and produced astounding results.
3. No single error in the Bible
God’s inspired word of God is perfect and cannot be broken. It is revealed and inspired word of the ALL MIGHTY AND EVER OMNIPOTENT SUPREME GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. If the Bible contains even a single error, Christianity will collapse. Even skeptics who will claim there are errors in the Bible will have to face the fact that their claims will eventually pale down to mere heresies.
4. Archeological Supports the Veracity of the Bible
Of all ancient manuscripts, the Bible has the most archaeological findings that will prove the accuracy and authenticity of the Bible. You can go to the internet or read written publications that will show ancient artifacts. These artifacts make the Bible an IRREFUTABLE manuscript and that it is the very word of the LIVING GOD.
5. Institution of Marriage
Have you seen animals marrying by themselves? What a ridiculous question, right? Ever wondered how marriage came into being and it is practice by people in almost all tribes, tongues, race, and ethnicity? The Bible reveals that it is God who instituted marriage from the beginning. God designed marriage – I’m talking about man and wife – to be a source of blessing and enjoyment.
6. The Creation
From the simplest form of life to the most complex, we can see the fingerprint of a Master Designer. Many documentaries were already made to prove that life here on Earth is impossible if even a single law of nature is altered.
These laws are set in motion by God.
As we look at the cells that builds every single detail of our body, we find a world as complex as our galaxy.
Even the renowned atheist Anthony Flew admitted that there is a creator when he cannot comprehend the intricate and sophisticated properties of the DNA.
One world did not come into being by the Big Bang Theory or the Theory of Evolution. Both of these theories cannot satisfactorily explain the beginning of time. That is the main reason that it remained to be a mere theory or better yet, a hoax and fallacy made as an attempt to discredit God.
In fact, it takes more faith to believe in the theory of evolution than the existence of God.
7. God’s Way is the ONLY WAY that Works!
Every human being has experimented and gone on their way seeking the best road towards happiness. All of them failed and suffered loss and disappointments. Because following God’s manual for mankind is the only way that man can achieve utopia. It is sad that today God’s name has been misrepresented by those people who profess to be Christians. They are like blind men leading the blind and they will all fall down the DITCH.
If you blow away the dust on your Bible and sincerely and earnestly learn what it says, you will soon realize that most of mankind’s answers to life’s greatest questions can be found here.
Imagine if all people will just follow the TEN COMMANDMENTS; no more divorce, abortion, broken family, corruption, war, conflicts, and all the negative things here on Earth! What a remarkable world should it had been!
GOD DOES EXIST! He is the Living Almighty God. There is hope beyond this life. Theories such of that evolution demean life’s ultimate purpose of existence. There will be coming a time that every knee shall bend at the return of Jesus Christ and every tongue shall confess that He is our Ruler. May God hasten that coming!
