What is the Evidence for the Creator of the Universe?
in Religion

By RickeyDRickeyD 212 Pts edited November 26

Evidence for our Creator


Preface

The most frequent rebuttal received from Atheists seeking to justify the facade of Atheism is the demand for a Christian to "PROVE IT!" relevant to the reality and validity of the Creator of the Universe; unfortunately, the atheist is blinded by Satan (2 Corinthians 4:4) and unable to internalize the evidence relevant to our Creator that engulfs their senses every moment of every day; the reality of Atheistic spiritual dysfunction is evident in that the atheist is spiritually dead in their naturalism (1 Corinthians 2:14-15). In fact, the Holy Spirit has warned the atheist that if they die in their sin - in their atheism, they will be "without excuse" when they stand in the Judgment for adjudication prior to sentencing to death in Hell (attached MEME - Romans 1:18-32).


Introduction


“Christianity is the only coherent worldview with corresponding truth that defines origin-meaning-morality-destiny and directly answers with logical consistency, empirical adequacy, experiential relevance.” (Ravi Zacharias) There is ONE God and ONE Mediator for sin, Jesus Christ-Yeshua (1 Timothy 2:5).


“There are honest doubters and dishonest doubters. An honest doubter is willing to search out the truth and live by the results; a dishonest doubter doesn’t want to know the truth. He can’t find God for the same reason a thief can’t find a policeman.” Adrian Rogers


Why did God create the Heavens and the Earth? (A brief overview)


The Creator of our Universe is Spirit (John 4:24) and His abode is the Spiritual Realm (John 18:36). As a result of discord, rebellion, sin, having been introduced into the Kingdom of God before the creation of Time, our Creator set-forth a Plan (2 Timothy 1:9-10) to deal with this destructive turmoil/rebellion apart from the Kingdom (Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:11-17; Luke 10:18).


Our Creator’s Plan included the creation of a separate and unique Realm apart from the Spiritual Realm where the conflict in the Kingdom could be dealt with void further destruction to God’s Kingdom. The Holy Spirit has named and identified this separate Realm as “Time.” Our Creator took elements from the Spiritual World that are not visible to our senses constrained by Time and He formed those elements into matter which are the building blocks for everything that is visible and invisible to the human eye and everything that is interacted with via mankind’s five-senses (Hebrews 11:3; Colossians 1:15-17).


With rapidity, our Creator created the Heavens and the Earth and all that is in them in six, twenty-four-hour days (Genesis 1:1-31).


Three-forms of evidence validating our Creator, Jesus Christ-Yeshua…

1) Nature

2) The Incarnation of God in Time

3) The Written Covenant between God and Mankind


1) Empirical – Preliminary – Substantive – Observable Evidence = Nature


The Universe, encompassing the Sun-Moon-Stars-Earth, descending downward to the complex human genome (life), all provide empirical, preliminary, substantive, observable, evidence for design in Nature and therefore mandate a Designer (Isaiah 66:1; Acts 7:49).


The Holy Spirit has clearly articulated that anyone who denies these empirical, supernatural, inexplicable, forms of Nature as testimony relevant to our Creator’s validity will be “without excuse” when they stand in the Judgment before Jesus Christ-Yeshua in Eternity (Romans 1:18-32; Revelation 20:11-15). It is the preliminary evidence of Nature that confronts mankind daily/nightly and is so designed as to draw all men and women to seek knowledge of God and find life in His Name, Jesus Christ-Yeshua.


God has so uniquely created and ordained Nature as testimony and evidence relevant to Himself that He has nullified mankind’s ability to define origin of matter or understand the supernatural Universe He has placed before us (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Origin of matter will, until the end of Time, remain a mystery to mankind as man is cognitively constrained by Time and The Curse; all that is visible and invisible to the human eye in Nature was established, created, by elements from the invisible Spiritual World; therefore, the genesis of our Creation will forever remain an enigma, a mystery, to the mind of man. Anyone seeking Truth, void a personal bias against the validity of our Creator, can easily apprehend and discern the supernatural design of creation mandating a supernatural Creator.


“By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” Hebrews 11:3 (NASB)


“He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NASB)

2) The Incarnate, Living Word of God, Jesus Christ-Yeshua


There exists no greater or more popular historical figure than Jesus Christ-Yeshua. The Atheist who rejects the historicity of Jesus simply rejects the overwhelming evidence for His validity readily accessible-available in Biblical and extra-Biblical as well as non-Christian, archeological, sources.


Our Creator did not leave His Human creation to wonder or ponder about the one-true-God and His Plan and purposes for Time and Eternity, but God left the Spiritual Realm some 2019-years ago, He divided history, and entered the Realm of Time in the flesh through a virgin birth that was essential to establish Him as Messiah who would selflessly give Himself to save mankind from death in sin and death in Hell (Philippians 2:5-11; Matthew 1:23).


During the 33.5-years of His Earthly sojourn, Jesus fulfilled over 300-Messianic prophecies as articulated in the Covenant of Law extending from the Genesis to The Book of Malachi. The statistical chances of


In the Gospel of John, Chapter 14 v. 6, Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”


Anyone contemplating the Deity of Jesus Christ in light of the previous Scripture (John 14:6) must come to ONE of only three-conclusions concerning Jesus Christ. Jesus is either a…

1. liar.

2. lunatic.

3. Lord


Every human being born subsequent to 33-AD and having attained an age of reason with sufficient cognitive acuity to discern the moral law as written upon our heart by our Creator (Romans 2:15) will have to choose between these three-options seeing that their eternal destiny will depend solely upon which option they choose.


3) The written word of God, the Holy Bible


God the Father has not only provided Nature/the Universe and the Son, Jesus Christ-Yeshua as testimony of His validity, power, dominion, but God has also provided a written “Covenant of Grace” (Matthew 26:28) to His human creation through the Holy Spirit. God the Holy Spirit meticulously, supernaturally, moved through the inner-man of 40-men of antiquity, holy men set-apart specifically for the purpose of penning on parchment the Plan and purposes of our Creator; a journey of 1400-to-1600-years, three-continents, three-languages, explaining in detail our origin, our purpose and meaning, God’s moral law and God’s Plan for the destiny of Time and Eternity.


For those who scoff at the integrity of God’s written word and thereby call the Holy Spirit a liar, understand that the very same Creator who initiated visible matter from the unseen Spiritual World and used same to create this vast supernatural Universe and gave you the breath of life, this very same Creator is abundantly capable and qualified to provide you and provide me with the EXACT words He desires we have so that we can know Him, His Plan and purposes for Time and our individual lives. Irrespective of councils of men and theologians, critics, scholars, all of the efforts of men concerning advocating for or disparaging the Holy Scriptures, know that the Bible remains the best-selling Book in History and that God’s word will NEVER fade away (Matthew 24:35).


Conclusion


Our Creator has provided Human KIND with three-undeniable-forms of evidence relevant to His validity, reality, power, dominion, Deity…

1) Nature.

2) Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Living Word of God.

3) A written covenant, the Holy Scriptures.


Anyone who desires to know God intimately, personally, will find Him and enter into a relationship with Him if they will seek Him with their whole heart…He will be found by them (Jeremiah 29:11-13). God will NOT entertain or commune with a heart that does not truly desire to know Him but He is faithful to make His abode with anyone willing to come to Him in faith and believe that He is true.


“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

Arguments

  • If you shut your eyes hard enough you can see everything clearly.
    RickeyD
    At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation, Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root and developed into the human race, who conquered fire, built societies and developed technology .
    All of that so we can argue about nothing.
  • @Happy_Killbot ; You will certainly shut your eyes one last time when you exhale your last in your body of death and you will certainly see everything with clarity as you transition into Eternity; unfortunately, if you die in your atheism, the Age of Grace will have passed for you and Judgment awaits before a second death in Hell for having rejected Jesus as Lord and Mediator for your sin. (Revelation 20:11-15).

    All of that so we can argue about nothing.
  • @Happy_Killbot ; This life is replete with discouragement but this life constrained by Time is nothing more than preparation for Eternity. You and I are in a form of spiritual boot-camp and "many" are going to graduate to dishonor and a "few" will graduate to honor and life with our Creator forever. In your atheism, you are existing in an inferior, subpar, life that will culminate in futility and wastefulness in destruction. The only Way to find life, meaning, substance, Truth, Eternity, is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

    All of that so we can argue about nothing.
  • @Happy_Killbot ; Atheism is a demonically-based religion though true Atheism does not exist in reality because every man and woman having attained an age of reason/accountability accompanied by at least a modicum of cognitive acuity intuitively knows our Creator exists via what He has made and placed before us in Nature, the Universe, extending downward to the complexity of the human genome...as the MEME attached to the OP states, the atheist is "without excuse."

    Atheism is nothing more than a ruse, a lie, a hoax, espoused by lost, dying, men and women who have surrendered their will to Satan as they have fallen into a form of addiction in sodomy, aberrant lust, naturalism via Darwinism, narcissism...men and women who are the "fools" of Time and Eternity.

    I am afraid you forgot to talk about the evidence in your post. Your argument proves as much that God created the Universe, as it proves that I created the Universe, or that you created the Universe, or that a bigfoot named Jimmy the Broken Bone created the Universe.

    "Look, this Universe is so complex! It could not have occurred naturally!" - is not a logical, but an emotional argument.

  • @MayCaesar ; You are created and will answer to your Creator, Jesus Christ, for the life lived in Time. I have told you that without Jesus Christ as Lord, you will live and die in futility. As I said, in your atheism, you are blind, deaf, lost, spiritually dead and headed to death in sin and a second death in Hell. I am here to inform you of this truism but I am not here to beg you or chase your foolishness. I have provided you with the evidence concerning our Creator. You will receive it or reject it...that is your "choice" via free will given you by our Lord.

  • Happy_Killbot, is your evidence that god is not real, on memes? The dead sea scrolls, which contain most of the bible, date from 408 B.C to 300 A.D. That proves that the bible is old, and the people who wrote this had seen all the events during the reign of the Romans, and even before the reign of the Romans. 
  • Happy_Killbot, do you even have proof that the bible is not real?

  • Happy_Killbot, Scientists are saying that there was a big bang, and they say that all of its energy got jammed into one space. How did that happen? It would require someone or something to do that, right? There is a purpose to everything made here. Houses, they keep you in a shelter. If houses were not needed, then they would be useless. There has to be a creator, or else we would be useless.

  • Atheism was founded in the 16th century, not when the world started. Happy_Killbot, we have a choice, to follow god, or satan. 1 john 5:18 "We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." John 8:47 "He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God."

    How did this happen? The only truthful answer is "we (you & I and the rest of us) don't know"... And that's ok, and that should be the end of it...

    @Happy_Killbot ; Only Satan, his minions, the Beast, the False Prophet suffer eternally in Hell. If you die in your atheism, you will be relegated to the region of Hades-Sheol/Torments in your disembodied spirit and there, fully conscious-cognitively acute, you will await the Judgment of the Condemned. You, mankind, who has rejected Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of sin will not suffer in Hell eternally but for a period of time commensurate with the deeds done in the body in Time, then you will die a second death, a death of finality and cease to exist forever (Revelation 20:11-15).

    I love and trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord, NOT because I fear Him or fear the repercussions of rebellion but because He is worthy, He is God, He is Creator, He died for me and I owe Him everything.

  • @Happy_Killbot ; Cancer is not God's will but man's choice. Our Creator, in The Beginning, established a Covenant of Sustenance-Provision with our first father, Adam. Adam opted to compromise with evil and rejected God's edict and therefore sin entered into the World as did death via a corrupted genome.

    "For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own turn: Christ the firstfruits; then at His coming, those who belong to Him.…" 1 Corinthians 15:21-23 (NASB)

    Cancer is a resultant of mutational genomic malformations that God did not desire but are the resultant of the Curse that man brought upon Himself. God does not desire evil but in order for good to exist, evil must be a default choice. In order for love and relationship to exist in authenticity, one must possess the free will to choose hate and rejection of love. We will all die in this body of sin (Romans 6:23), the question is, the most relevant discussion is, where will our spirit find itself within an atomic second of our last exhalation? (2 Corinthians 5:8)

    Also, that child that is suffering from cancer, should she succumb to its torment, unless she has attained an age of reason/accountability, that child is forever secure in our Lord and will spend Eternity with our God in peace, healing, no tears, no suffering...simply joy, peace, assurance, contentment.

    But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."  Matthew 19:14 (NASB)

    1) Trust and obey Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of your sin and find life in God's Kingdom subsequent to death of our body (John 3:3).

    2) Reject Jesus Christ as Lord and serve Satan by default and die in your sin and die in Hell in futility (John 8:24; John 8:44).

    Your pawn-ship is your "choice." Choose wisely.

  • @Happy_Killbot Christian faith is the substance that garners God the Father's attention. Christian faith is based on evidence, logic, reason.

    Christian faith is that substance that moves mankind from a wandering in hopelessness to an acute desire for knowledge. It is faith that permits man to observe the supernatural Universe around him and it is faith that inspires an inquisitiveness to know how this design manifest and who that designer could possibly be?


    It is the man or woman who steps-out in faith and pursues our Designer with their whole heart that ultimately find that Designer and they are subsequently introduced to the secrets of the Kingdom of God through the Holy Spirit.


    Though faith has been defined as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1) – I prefer simply to refer to faith as “trust-belief” motivating action that concludes in verification for the one possessing a heart willing to internalize Truth.
