Evangelism Part 16: God Exist

Evangelism Part 16: God’s exist in His perfect ways and He reward those who believe of His existence.

The word of God has been preached all over the world and there are no religious people that do not know that God is real. The Atheist  claim that they do not believe in God, but yet they have to use the name of God to push their beliefs. God, as we know manifested in different ways in all the nations of the world at different times and events. Different religions have different names, but it is the same God that does good things to His people, the source of love and creations.

God can make impossible things possible.  He can exist in many parts of the world at the same time. The three big religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism all believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Yahweh(YHWH), is the God of the Israelites and is also mentioned as the LORD. The Qur’an describes God as Allah, the creator of Adam; in Christianity God is called God, God Almighty, and God the Father or Father God and in Hinduism, God is  called their God Brahma and still other names go on and on. 

To answer the question “If all things have a creator, then who created God?” “Where is God before the creation of the heavens and the earth?” If these questions are improper to ask God where He was before all the creations, then we will never know who is God. The Bible commanded us to seek His face; “Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! —1 Chronicle 16:11,” and God Himself said this: “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.”—Proverbs 8:17 ESV, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”—Jeremiah 29:13 ESV.

When we ask God humbly and with respect, it is definitely what we want to do to have a personal relationship with Him so  we could  be as close as we can. There is no secret that God has revealed himself to us in the Bible as having always existed, and He even said that He will reward those who will acknowledge His existence-Hebrew 11:6. We can always come to God through the Holy Spirit and with a contrite heart, we can ask anything for the sake of godly and peaceful living.

As a reminder, we have to set our minds on things above, and not the things that are on earth. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…” Matthew 6:19-21

The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who lack knowledge and need understanding or are ignorant regarding His will and purpose, and their journey to find Him is still far from over. Seeking God will not come back void if we will continuously use His Word to find Him. David in the wilderness used these words, A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah he uttered these words: “O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”—Psalm 63:1. In this passage, the heart and soul of David are pure and gentle, sincere, and with respect, we must approach God this way.

Evangelism is an act of spreading the goodness of God, His love, and care for us His children. We should share God’s gift of salvation to those who are longing for it and also to those who do not know that it is available to everyone. Without God we are nothing and  those who said that there is no God, they are the ones that were called but never responded and whose names are  not written in the book of life. God will turn His face away from those who do evil.

“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.”— Jeremiah 29:12-14 ESV.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”—Numbers 6:24-27 NKJV

God is all in all.
