How Do You Know if God is Real?
There is no physical proof that God is real. Believing in God is solely based on faith. In most cases, a person believes in God because they had some type of a spiritual experience with a God that they felt touched their life in some way shape or form.
If you are a born-again Christian, you may have asked Jesus into your life and then felt him working in your heart. You may be prone to reading the Holy Bible daily in order to hear what God is saying to you. When he speaks to you, you hear him through circumstances that happen in your life and through prayer. You may pray and ask God to give you the job of your dreams. Perhaps you have never prayed to God about it and then suddenly, you get a phone call from an employer that can give you your dream job. This kind of answered prayer makes God real to you.
You may also believe that God is real because of prophecy. If you read in the Old and New Testament, you will see that a lot of what has been predicted by the prophets has already come to pass. The Old Testament predicted that the messiah would ride on a donkey and indeed, Jesus wrote on a donkey as he came into Jerusalem. Jesus also told Peter the apostle that he would deny him 3 times and he did. Jesus also said that Judas would betray him and indeed Judas did.
When God shows us his existence through the supernatural, we begin to believe that he is a real being. He is no longer someone out there in the universe. It now becomes personal to us.
Also, God is in nature itself. How can you explain the breath of life? Doctors cannot even give someone the breath of life. Even with all our technology and medical advancement and machinery, a doctor can’t make you live a lot of the time. As the saying goes, “When its your time to go, you just go.” It’s amazing how God can breathe life into a body. When it dies, its over. However, through a miracle, Jesus Christ was able to raise Lazarus from death. This proves that God has power over the breath of life.
Also, the universe is made with perfection. Scientists discover something new and perfect within the universe. One can only say that God exists by what we see in nature.
If you have ever seen someone addicted to drugs and alcohol, you may see their life in destruction. After giving themselves to God and reading the Holy Bible, they become changed. Their life begins to take a whole new meaning and they begin to act Christ like. This is a true miracle. They once were lost and now are found because of God’s intervention in their life. When we read the Holy Bible, it changes us.
Reading the Bible everyday tells you that there is a God and that God is love. It teaches us discipline. When a body of people do exactly what the Holy Bible says, there is peace and harmony. When a population of people go against what the Bible says, there is chaos.
Psalm 19:1, 3 tells us that we can see the hand of God at work as we investigate the universe. Look at the stars, planets and all that we see in nature. Someone had to make this. It just didn’t appear here. We know this to be God at work.
The apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 1:20 that when we look around and get a view into who God is by what he has made. We can see the love and care of God all around us.
If you have ever praised God with your hands raised in the air, you can see that God is giving you peace. You will feel the Holy Spirit coming upon you when you ask Jesus to touch your life. When you feel this peace, you know that it comes from God.
In the Old Testament, the book of Genesis tells us that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). If you like history books, this is one of the oldest books ever recorded in history that tells about how the earth created. This theory has been around a lot longer than the “big bang theory”. I would rather place my trust in my ancient ancestors that taught this concept for over 6,000 years than any other modern-day teaching that exists today.
Colossians 1:16, 17 tell us that God created the heavens and the earth. Even in the book of Job, we read in Job 11:7 that we cannot know all the deep secrets that only God could know? All you must do is start thinking about the universe and wonder how something was created. It will blow your mind as to what you can’t figure out and what we will never know. Some things are hidden from our eyes. The Holy Bible reveals to us who the person of God is and how he changes lives for the better.
The Holy Bible tells us in Isaiah 7:14 that the messiah would be born of a virgin. As we know, Mary the mother of Jesus was a virgin when she got pregnant with Jesus. In Micah 5:2 it tells us that Jesus would be born in a small town in Bethlehem. If we read Zechariah 11:12 in the Old Testament, it tells us that the betrayer of the messiah would receive 30 shekels of silver for his betrayal to Christ. These prophecies were predicted thousands of years before the birth of Jesus Christ.
As you can see, only God can reveal to us the mysteries of what will happen in the future. Without God, we would not see the future in anything that we are trying to see without divine intervention.
In John 1:1, 2; 10:30, the New Testament tells us that God came down from heaven in the form of Jesus Christ to show us who he really was. Jesus healed the sick, raised the dead and gave to the poor. This shows the true heart of God and his love for us.
Jesus himself even said in John 14:9, that if you have seen him, you have seen the father. This means that Jesus is and was God in the flesh.
In Psalm 14:1; 53:1, it tells us that whoever doesn’t believe in God, is a fool. If you are a fool right now, you can get to know God. The Holy Bible even tells you how to find God if you have never found him. Read Hebrews 11:6 in the New Testament. It tells us that we can find God if we search for him with all our heart. This means that in order to find God, you must search for him first. Searching acts. This means that you will have to pick up the Holy Bible yourself and read it. Read what it says about God and learn who God is as a person.
If you are wondering how many Gods there are, there is only one. Read Isaiah 46:9 in the Old Testament. It tells us that there is only one God. If you are wondering who made God, the answer is nobody. God has always been. Read 1 Timothy 1:17 in the Holy Bible New Testament. You will read that God has always been here.
Praying to the Son of God
As you can see, praying to the son of God will allow you to see that Jesus does answer prayer. When you are wanting to know God, you must pray daily and ask God to reveal certain mysteries to you. Ask him to reveal who he is as a person.
God’s grace comes upon us when we ask Jesus to be the Lord and savior of our lives. We begin to see that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that because of this, we receive salvation. Please read John 3:16 in the New Testament.
Some Attributes of God:
If you have trust in God, you will see him revealing himself to you. You will begin to see that God is with you.
What Does God Look Like?
Since the Holy Bible reveals to us that Jesus Christ is God, we can see that God is a man. Jesus was said to have long hair and wore a beard. He was thin. This was God in the flesh. As a spiritual being, God appeared to Moses in a burning bush and wrote the ten commandments with his hands.
The Old Testament tells us that Adam and Eve heard God walking in the Garden of Eden and hid themselves when they heard his footsteps because they were ashamed that they were naked.
As we can see, this person was Jesus Christ himself before coming to earth. The Holy Bible always refers to God as being a male figure. Jesus Christ also chose 12 apostles that were all men. We can see that God wants the head of the household to be a man.
When we pray to God, he answers us. Prayer is an important part of coming to know God.
If you don’t have faith to believer that there is a God, you need to first ask God to give you faith in him so that you can believe. You must walk step by step where you are at right now in your life. You will come to see Jesus Christ as being real to you.
How Old is God?
God has no age because he is infinite. He has always been and always will be according to the Holy Bible.
Praise God for all that he has done for us. He is worthy to be praised in song. Clap your hands a start thanking God for all that he has done for you.
Does God Exist?
As you can see, God does exist. However, you must seek him with all your heart in order to find him. This is something that you need to do right now. Put aside television, social media, the internet and begin focusing on the Holy Bible and learning. This will prove God’s existence to you. God answers prayer. Praise him!
God is faithful and will answer your prayers. He will always answer you when you pray. It may not happen in the time or way that you want, but God will answer you in his own way.
God the father and son are the same. Know that God loves you because He is love.
How to Pray to God?
Close your eyes and start speaking to God from your heart. When you do this, you begin speaking to God and he hears you. God hears all prayers and gives us what we need. He is love. You can also pray to God through a gift of tongues. Ask a Christian that already speaks in tongues to pray for you. Receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and savior. Ask Jesus to give you the gift of speaking in tongues.
Was Jesus Real?
Yes, Jesus was real. After Jesus resurrected from the dead, his apostles carried out the mission of preaching the gospel to all nations. For the first 300 years, Christianity was not allowed to be preached.
Christians often had to meet in underground caves and homes to worship him. Around the year 314 A.D., the Roman Emperor Constantine made Christianity an official religion that could be preached without facing persecution. Rome made it official and it’s because of the years and years of people believing and receiving healing from Jesus that his gospel never died.
Today, the gospel is still going strong 2,000 years later. Also, there are more than 2 billion Christians in the world today. What started out as a simple faith, turned into a worldwide religion.
Thousands of people died for Jesus and are called martyrs because they felt the real working power of Jesus. The first pope of the Christian church also suffered death by crucifixion because he knew Jesus and would not stop preaching about him. If Jesus were not real, Peter never would have died for his name. It is foretold that almost all the first apostles died by crucifixion for the name of Jesus.
Also, the prophecies of the Old Testament tell us that Jesus Christ would be born into a world by a virgin. This did happen and was told about in the New Testament.
In your prayer, say, God please help me. Let Jesus Christ know that you are seeking him out. God is going to help you in his time. Just keep on asking him for help.
Faith in God is stepping out in faith to begin with. You need to read the Holy Bible first in order to believe in him.
God and Jesus are the same person. There is father, son and holy ghost. They are three in one.
Ask God for what you want and wait for a response from him. He will respond to you in due timing. Ask him for something that you think is impossible and let him show you that nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God.
