God

Question: Does God exists? How do we know?

Does God exists?

We cannot see God, so how do we know He exists?

God is invisible, but He has given us ample evidence of His existence:

A. Creation

Today, many scientists are of the view that the universe materialized out of a primordial explosion of unimaginable energy—the so-called “Big Bang Theory”. Yet they fail to provide answers to important questions, such as the energy source and how the process started.

However, there is no such ambiguity in the Bible, for it clearly reveals that God is the Creator of the universe. Moreoever, the whole of creation testifies to His existence:

  • “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Rom 1:20).
  • “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein” (Ps 24:1).
  • “For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be the glory forever. Amen” (Rom 11:36).
  • “I am the Lord, who makes all things, who stretches out the heavens all alone, who spreads abroad the earth by Myself” (Isa 44:24).
  • “He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing” ( Job 26:7).
  • “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth” (Ps 33:6).
  • “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Heb 11:3).
  • “Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness” (Acts 14:17).
  • “He gives to all life, breath, and all things” (Acts 17:25).

B. Natural order within the universe

Everything around us has order: the movement of the stars and planets, the passing of day and night, the changing seasons and the cycle of life and death. From these things, we realize there must be a Master of the universe who has created order, and who sustains everything by His power (Neh 9:6; Heb 1:3; 2 Pet 3:7).

C. Goodness

The source of goodness is God, for Jesus says, “No one is good but One, that is, God” (Mt 19:17). Because His nature is intrinsically good, He has provided us with moral values to help us discern right from wrong (Rom 2:14–16). In addition, He has given us an innate desire to seek Him and worship Him. Hence, the Bible says, “Because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them” (Rom 1:19).

D. Miracles

The Bible reveals the power of God to perform miraculous deeds in the lives of His people. Today, He continues to perform miracles in the true church. They enable people to know that He is God (1 Kgs 18:38– 39) and prove that what is impossible with man is possible with Him (Mt 19:26).

E. God’s manifestation in the flesh

Two thousand years ago, God manifested in the flesh as Jesus Christ— truly, a miracle without precedent (1 Tim 3:16). The Bible states: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” ( Jn 1:1). Jesus came to the world to seek out and save those who were lost (Lk 19:10) and to bear witness to what He had received from God ( Jn 8:26). In doing so, Jesus revealed God who had never been seen by man ( Jn 1:18). Hence, He said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” ( Jn 14:9).

F. The Bible

The Bible is the inspiration of God: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim 3:16). It speaks of His work from the beginning of time, His relationship with man, His will and His truth. It contains many prophecies that continue to be fulfilled to this day. The whole book testifies to the power of God (Mk 12:24).

G. The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God ( Jn 4:24), who was poured out on believers for the first time on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1–4). Today, God bestows the Holy Spirit upon believers within the true church. The Bible calls it an experience we can see and hear (Acts 2:33). This is because, when this “power from on high” enters our hearts (Lk 24:49), it enables us to speak in spiritual tongues (Mk 16:17; Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6). In this way, the Holy Spirit testifies that God is real, and that He is the one who bestows this grace (Lk 24:49; Jn 15:26).

H. The church

The church is the body of Christ, “the fullness of Him who fills all in all” (Eph 1:23). It is through the church that God’s will, wisdom, power, glory, truth and blessings are revealed (Eph 1:19; 3:9–10). It comprises God’s chosen people who have been brought forth by the word of truth. For this reason, the Bible describes them as the firstfruits in His creation ( Jas 1:18).

I. Justice

God’s nature is just, and His justice governs our lives and fate. The Bible says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal 6:7). God’s justice is administered in this lifetime by the authorities He has ordained (Rom 13:1–2). Importantly, it will be administered a final time by Jesus at His second coming (Rev 20:11–15). The Lord says, “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work” (Rev 22:12).

J. The existence of the devil

The Bible reveals clearly the existence of the devil and the work of demons. Mark 5:1–20, for example, records the story of a demon- possessed man from Gadara who lived among the tombs. Upon seeing Jesus, he cried out, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me” (Mk 5:7). Jesus commanded the evil spirit to come out, and the man regained his peace.

Today, there are people who continue to suffer on account of evil spirits. Within the true church, ministers are able to cast them out in the name of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. From these experiences, we understand that demon-possession is real, and that it is a spiritual affliction that only God can resolve.
