We live in a world where millions doubt the existence of YaHuWaH : a world of science and technology in which people only accept what they can prove: see, measure, weigh or touch. Understandably, abstract concepts are accepted with caution. The world is crawling with religious cranks, weirdos and crackpots all claiming to be spokesmen of the Almighty God. Belief in the existence of 'spirit beings' such as God are, therefore, treated with suspicion, disdain and often with amusement. Certainly the sophisticated western mind calls for more than nebulous unproved theories upon which to base faith. Nevertheless, were you to visit any country in the world, you would find that the majority of people believe that a supernatural Being (we'll call Him God) does exist. In other words, believers in a God of some sort outnumber unbelievers. Many people believe that there are thousands of gods, not just one: though they will readily agree that over and above the lesser gods is One Almighty God. In this article I will give you three reasons why I believe God exists. The Elohim of Israel is called YaHuWaH. That is His name. So, when I use the terms God, the Almighty, the Eternal, the Lord, the Most High, Jehovah etc, I mean YaHuWaH the Elohim of Israel.
My first reason for believing that YaHuWaH exists is the creation. Every week the manifold marvels of the natural world are seen on TV by millions of viewers. It would be difficult to find a person in the western world who does not secretly marvel at the wonders of nature. Films about plants, animals, insects, fish, birds, reptiles and other living organisms are legion. I spend hours watching them. Add to this endless array are other films about outer space and the wonders of the sprawling universe of which earth forms but a tiny part. Did the universe really begin with a big bang, as some claim, and then evolve over billions of years to its present complexity? Or was the universe created by Elohim? There is no way anyone can prove evolution or creation: both possibilities must be accepted by faith. We humans cannot hang around for billions of years to prove by experiment and observation the claims of evolution. Neither are we able to command YaHuWaH to prove His existence and power by doing a miracle before our eyes. YAHUSHUA the Messiah classified the 'demand for proof' as a sign of disbelief, as spiritual adultery! The Bible tells us many things about the wise and the foolish, the just and the unjust, the faithful and the adulterous. Consider these texts:
|Psalm 14:1||"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no Elohim."|
|Matthew 16:4||"A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas ..." (meaning his Resurrection)|
|Habakkuk 2:4 ...||"... the just shall life by faith."|
But even though we are unable to prove creation by commanding God to reveal Himself, we still have enough evidence in nature to satisfy the thinking mind. Literally scores of inexplicable, natural marvels confront us every day: from the tiniest garden herb and insect to the giant galaxies that populate space. All these wonders, the small and the large, could hardly have happened of their own accord - even given trillions of years.
Many scientists are abandoning the theory of evolution in favor of special creation. The marvels of nature, all thinking minds will one day admit, have been designed and brought into being by an infinitely brilliant and powerful Being - Almighty YaHuWaH ! There is only one logical explanation on hand for their existence: and that is special creation! The Bible supports this observation in the following verses:
|Isaiah 42:5||"Thus saith Elohim YaHuWaH, He that created the heavens, and stretched them out; He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:"
|Isaiah 45:8||"Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I YaHuWaH have created it"
|verse 12||"I have made the Earth, and created the human upon it: I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded ..."
|verse 18||"For thus saith YaHuWaH that created the heavens; Elohim himself that formed the Earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am YaHuWaH ; and there is none else."|
Yes, witnessing the wonders of the natural world is my first reason for believing that YaHuWaH exists: and that He is the Creator of the heavens, the earth, the sea and the fountains of water. Those who dismiss this inevitable conclusion are classified in scripture as fools!
|Psalm 14:1||"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no Elohim."|
My second reason for believing that YaHuWaH exists is Bible prophecy. A third of the Bible is prophecy: the recorded forecast of events due to take place on earth. Mankind is totally incapable of forecasting future events. Of the millions who do the lottery each week, not a single person is able to infallibly forecast the winning numbers. They may make an accurate guess once in a while; but guesswork is not knowing in advance. Guesswork is not prophecy. No one is able to predict the winning numbers week after week. Accurately forecasting the future of nations, towns and even individuals thousands of years before they appear on the stage of history is infinitely more difficult than forecasting lottery numbers. Yet YaHuWaH, the Almighty Elohim of Abraham, does just that with stunning regularity. The Bible contains many prophecies that are at this very moment coming true all over the world. Literally hundreds of Bible prophecies have already come true and others await fulfillment in the very near future. This is irrefutable evidence that YaHuWaH, who inspired the Bible, does exist and that He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets.
|Daniel 2:28||"...There is an Elohim in Heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days."
|Amos 3:7||"Surely Adonai YaHuWaH will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets."|
As Jesus said "... The scriptures must be fulfilled." (Mark 14:49)
My third reason for believing that YaHuWaH exists is personal experience. This reason is listed third in sequence, but it is by no means third in importance. It is every bit as important as the other two and, perhaps, even more so, because I have personally proved that YaHuWaH has lived up to every promise He ever made concerning those who put their faith in Him and His son. Since my salvation in 1978 when I was 32 years of age He has blessed me, my wife and my family beyond measure; far more than we have ever deserved. So I can personally say:
As the old chorus says: "You ask me how I know He lives: He lives within my heart!"
|Isaiah 42:8-9||"I am YaHuWaH : that is My Name: and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them."
|Daniel 2:47||"The king answered Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your Elohim is an Elohim of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets ..."|
|Matthew 11:||27: All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.
28: Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29: Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30: For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
