It Takes More Faith Not to Believe
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
37 As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, 38 shouting:
“Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord;
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”
Rocks will testify that Christ is King? That’s a pretty audacious thing to say. And yet? Creation does reveal its secrets to us. Geology reveals what lived in the various ages, what space objects have hit the earth in the past, and the various climate changes which happened over a period of time. Biology reveals the intricate coding of DNA and how it passes on genetic instructions to all the various life forms which exist now and existed in the past. Astronomy and physics reveal how the universe works from the expanse of space to the realm of subatomic particles.
Some believe it all came about with a big bang and the universe is one big accident. Others believe that this earth was tinkered with by aliens from outer space. Then there are religions such as Christians, Jews, and Muslims who believe in creation.
The Bible will not prove God’s existence. The Bible is the Word of God and therefore it is self-evident that God exists. This is why God’s Word has no spiritual meaning for a non-believer. Unless you are born again, a person cannot truly believe God exists by simply reading the Bible. They will dismiss the Word of God as superstition. However, deep inside, everybody knows there is a Creator whether or not they believe the Bible is true.
Genesis 1:26-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. ”God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Men have a conscience. They instinctively know the laws of God. They know it’s wrong to steal, commit adultery, lie, and murder. The knowledge of God’s law is imbedded in their internal makeup. Oh they can dismiss this notion with anthropological and sociological theories, but even if you go into the deepest, darkest and most remote places on earth, this knowledge is present even at the clan and tribal level. People in their deepest being know there is a God. Religion comes from even the most basic of societies.
The difference between remote tribes and nations and the Jews is that God chose the Jews to be the keepers of His Word. This is how we know the right God we must worship.
Genesis 12:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Abram Journeys to Egypt 12 Now the Lord said to Abram,
“1 Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
2 And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
Glory to God, Lord THANK YOU for the Hebrews and we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. The existence of Israel today alone should absolutely prove there is a God, but let’s continue.
Atheism goes against the very core of human nature. No wonder many of them are angry. They can’t get the majority of this world to agree with them. UFO people have to ask themselves, “If Aliens exist, who created THEM?” This applies to both those who believe in trans-galactic beings or trans-dimensional beings. The majority of us believe in a Creator. They may not be sure who or what that Creator may be.
It all boils down to faith. You will read this from me time after time, “You cannot be a Christian without Christ”. This is something we should all keep in mind when we witness to nonbelievers. The seeds we sow will drop into fertile or unfertile soil. The fertile soil is faith. The unfertile soil is a carnal heart which even in a carnal state goes against a person’s very own nature.
Romans 1:17-22 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.” 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
Yes, you read it here. Nonbelief is foolishness. Worse, if a person doesn’t repent, God just may let them continue in their own foolishness. This is even more apparent in these last days:
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
You know what the kicker is for atheists? They will have to take the mark of the beast in order to survive in the one-world government system. That’s a religious decision.
