Evangelism Part 16: God Exists Series

Evangelism Part 16: God exists in His perfect ways and rewards those who believe in 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 atheists claim that they do not believe in God, yet they have to use the name of God to push their beliefs. God, as we know, manifested in different ways in all the world’s nations at different times and events. Different religions have different names, but the same God 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 prominent religions, 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; 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, 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 God is. 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 humbly and respectfully ask God, it is definitely what we want to do to have a personal relationship with Him so we can be as close as we can. There is no secret that God has revealed himself to us in the Bible as having always existed. He even said that He would 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 godly and peaceful living.

As a reminder, we have to set our minds on things above and not the things 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 continuously use His Word to find Him. David in the wilderness used these words, A Psalm of David, when was in the wilderness of Judah 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 spreads the goodness of God, His love, and care for us, His children. We should share God’s gift of salvation with those working for it and those who do not know it is available to everyone. Without God, we are nothing, and those who said there is no God are those who 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. You will find me 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 His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”—Numbers 6:24-27 NKJV.

God is all in all.
