God’s splendor is a tale that is told; his testament is written in the stars. Space itself speaks his story every day through the marvels of the heavens. His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky, showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship. Each day gushes out its message to the next, night with night whispering its knowledge to all. Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard, Yet all the world can see its story. Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know. Psalm 19:1-4 TPT
The Impossible God.
Science can’t prove Him. Science can’t disprove Him. Some say He’s an imaginary friend for those who are desperate and in need of something to hold on to in this dingy and dirty world, other’s say He is a myth, and still others say God is self. So, what do you say about God and His Son Jesus Christ?
Jesus asked His disciples this question, ... "Who do men say that I am?" - Mar 8:27 NKJV After a couple of replies from the disciples, He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ." - Mar 8:29 NKJV
Jesus is God, and God exists as the Sole Creator of the universe, and all that is within it, the stars, the moon and sun, the oceans and the mountains; our belief or unbelief in this does not make it less truth (Gen 1:1). God is God whether we believe it or not. Jesus came to reconcile the world to God, and regardless of what or who others thought He was He still was who He was. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. - 1Jo 5:7 KJV
The great I AM, supernatural, never changing, all-encompassing, all eternal God. There is none before Him nor will there be any after Him. Though humankind may create gods to their standards, it will not change the fact that He is and always will be GOD, Yĕhovah!
Science in a general sense is the comprehension or understanding of truth or facts by the mind as defined by Webster’s 1828 Dictionary. How does one describe God based on science when He is Spirit? God is pneuma, not matter. A spirit or the Spirit is devoid of grosser matter yet possessed of the power of knowing, desiring, deciding, and acting (Strong’s Concordance). God’s Holy Spirit is a vital part of how He does all that He does. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. - Gen 1:2 NKJV
Science cannot explain the spiritual things through its systematic knowledge of the physical or material world. Thus, the confusion behind the existence of God. Jesus said, "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” - John 6:44 NKJV This is a spiritual “drawing” and not one of the natural or material world. We can’t see the Spirit of God drawing us, but we are aware of Him doing so through our senses. This sensing can only happen when our spiritual ears and eyes are open to the spiritual things, that is why we pray for the eyes of our understanding to be opened (Eph 1:8).
God is full of grace and mercy and offers these attributes of His love new every day. Recently world-renowned physicist and atheist Stephen Hawking died at the age of 76. Every day he looked into the face of death since he was 21 years old. He suffered from an incurable neurodegenerative disease called ALS for more than five decades and was supposed to have died by the age of 25. The Guardian quotes Hawking to say “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers [our brains]; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” In his book, A Brief History of Time Hawking said that if physicists could find a “theory of everything” – that is, a cohesive explanation for how the universe works – they would glimpse “the mind of God.” However, he later clarified in The Grand Design, that he wasn’t referring to a creator in the traditional sense because “spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.” Hawking said, “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation.” He is also quoted to say, “What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.” El Mundo
Sadly, Stephen Hawking is dead now, ceasing to exist here on earth he gave up his opportunity to spend eternity with God. Though his body suffered many years, I believe it is entirely possible that God’s grace extended mercy over these many years so that he could have an opportunity to know God through Jesus Christ and live a full life in eternity. Sadly, he refused to take that opportunity as far as I’m aware. Now he knows with certainty the truth about heaven and hell; the truth about the Personal Creator and Lover of our souls…too late. His brilliant mind could have given God glory, as was planned and purposed to do, only sowed confusion and discord into a world that already believes in nothing and sees hopelessness as an eternity. God help all those whom this man led astray.
Men and women of science say that a man cannot live three days in the belly of a fish because science cannot prove it so some say it is a fairy tale. Science also says a person cannot be raised from the dead, a blind or deaf man cannot be healed, nor can a man be born of a virgin, murdered, buried and raised to life. The idea that science can't prove the supernatural work of God does not disprove it either. Although science cannot prove the existence of a supernatural God, nature and all creation point to it when eyes are opened.
“Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.” (Job 12:7-10)
All of creation sings praises to the LORD and of His greatness. Imagine a parade of stars, waters, mountains, and heavens singing to the glorious Creator! Let the earth join in with this parade of praise! You mighty creatures of the ocean’s depths, echo in exaltation! 8 Lightning, hail, snow, and clouds, and the stormy winds that fulfill his word. 9 Bring your melody, O mountains and hills; trees of the forest and field, harmonize your praise! Ps 148:8-9
God created all the universe to harmonize together, and He added humans. We were never created to live in chaos for out of the chaos He created beauty. The Creator, God and Father consider us to be a beautifully orchestrated sound and sweet-smelling aroma! He loved us so much, in spite of all our issues and shortcomings of glory, that He sent Jesus Christ to take up the death intended for us so that we might live and live abundantly.
The blood that is the life of humans and animals reflect the creative power of God while the heavens point to His glory. 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: - Rom 1:19-20 KJV
Heavenly Father, Creator of the Universe, thank You for revealing Your mysterious Person to me. I’m thankful to know You and be called a child of God. Today I pray for those who have not been enlightened to the mystery of the Cross of Jesus and as such are lost. May You open the eyes of their heart to know the truth of who You are and that Jesus Christ is the answer to all their circumstances. May the Scriptures open up to those who lack understanding of Your greatness and may all confusion of Your sovereignty be broken off the people of God. In Jesus name, Amen
