Psalm 14

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

Will evildoers never learn-those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD?

There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous. You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad

The heart is the seat of emotion, where the head is the seat of intellect. The fool denies God in his heart because even a fool cannot deny God with his head. The evidence is too overwhelming. The only way mankind can be convinced of the absence of God is to be kept ignorant of this massive body of evidence. So ignorant that the thought either never occurs to him, or if it does it’s dismissed as an obsolete legend; a fairy tale as it were.

All through school I was taught one explanation for the origin of earth and mankind. Evolution. It was so pervasive and conclusive in our textbooks and our teachers’ discussions that it never occurred to me to seek another answer. It was presented as fact, and that’s all there was to it. Even in my church, a mainline protestant denomination, no presentation of God as our Creator was ever put forth to challenge the concept of evolution, and to this day I don’t know what my pastors believed on this subject.

But to anyone who takes the time to do even a little research, the existence of God quickly becomes so obvious that one wonders how it was ever missed. No cover-up of this proportion could ever have succeeded by accident; it’s the product of a massive conspiracy between educators and theologians engineered and managed by Satan himself.

In Romans 1 Paul claims that all anyone has to do to see evidence of a Creator is look at the creation. But in my opinion the quickest way to prove God’s existence is to begin studying Bible prophecy. Just take a handful of Old Testament prophecies concerning the first coming of Jesus (there are over 300 of them and all were a matter of public record at least 150 years before His birth), and apply any legitimate standard you want: forensic logic, statistical analysis, rules of evidence, you name it.

Even a person of modest intellect will quickly be persuaded. God exists, He is Who He says He is, and He has done all that He claims to have done. No blind faith is required, no rush of emotion, no hocus-pocus; just cold hard logic. In fact it takes a whole lot more blind faith and a stubborn willingness to believe in spite of the facts to accept evolution as your explanation for the beginning of life.

Prophecy is the way God validates His word. No other so-called holy writings offer this proof. Only He has consistently told His people what He was going to do and then did it to prove Himself to them.

Once you see that His track record for fulfilling prophecy is without error or blemish, you’ll know beyond all shadow of doubt that you can trust Him too. Trust Him to save you from the penalty due you for your sins; trust Him to return like He promised to take you to be with Him forever, and trust Him to guide you through the remainder of your uncertain and undefined life on earth in the meantime.

Prayer:  Lord, help me to see your word the way you see it, history written in advance.  Help me to understand it better and to believe in you more and more as I do.  Amen
