In this article, we are going to discuss evolution, nature, the universe, history and the Bibles proof of God’s existence.
We must always remember.
Each one of us are accountable for ourselves. Despite what a church or Pastor may teach, we all need to pickup the Bible and read it for ourselves. Only then can we verify if what we have been told is true and correct.
Some scientists would have us believe all of creation was one big accident. That people evolved from a single cell which progressed to an ape and eventually man. There are several issues with this theory.
Simply stated, something cannot come from nothing.
If we entertain the idea of evolution for a moment, then we must understand it would be a never-ending cycle. There would be all forms of life evolving at different rates across the globe.
There would be half man, half ape.
Obviously, we do not see that, instead, we see mankind that is composed of many races. Each race is unique from another, on the outside, yet on the inside, we are exactly the same.

If we consider nature for a moment, humans and animals breathe in oxygen, and exhale carbon dioxide.
While the plant world is exactly the opposite.
Further, the waste of humans and animals breaks down and fertilizes the plant world.
All while plants provide us with food to sustain ourselves which documents the creatures of the earth are in perfect harmony with one another.
This was not an accident, but by design.
Have you ever considered a morning sunrise or evening sunset?
The beautiful colors that dance across the sky, could they be an accident too?
Or the echo of a thunderstorm across a valley and the rain it brings which causes life to shoot from the ground.
How about the fragrance of a flower, or the sweet taste of a crisp apple?
An apple whose seed contains life to produce an entire tree full of apples, (Genesis 1:11-12).
How about the feeling of love, (Genesis 2:24)?
Love that bonds a husband, wife and their children together.
Can all of these things be some random accident?
If we look at our universe we marvel at the various types of stars, planets, comets and the sheer vastness of space itself. Our blue planet orbits the sun at just the right distance which provides the perfect amount of light necessary to support life on earth. At night we are not left in the dark, but rather enchanted by the light of the stars and moon which guide us down the path of the night, (Genesis 1:14-15).
Naturally, the setting of the sun tells our bodies it is time for them to rest, as some animals are coming out to enjoy the cool of the night. While our beautiful planet moves in a fashion which provides us with four seasons. Giving us the opportunity to enjoy the beauty and changes that nature has to offer.
Many in the scientific community are baffled by the solar system which has been in perfect harmony for an estimated four billion years, (see: How The Universe Works: Clockwork And Creation). They are confounded as the rest of the universe is surrounded by chaos and destruction, exploding stars and colliding planets.
While there are other scientists who explain that nature and all of creation is not some random accident, but the perfect and beautiful Works of our Father in Heaven, (see: God Of Wonders: Scientists Prove Almighty God’s Existence Through Science).
If we open the pages of history we find people like Publius Cornelius Tacitus who was a senator and historian of the Roman Empire. Tacitus mentions Jesus Christ in his writing “Annals” which includes the crucifixion of Christ.
Another person is Titus Flavius Josephus who was a Roman-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer. Josephus also mentions Jesus Christ in his writing “Antiquities of the Jews” in addition to referencing John the Baptist.
Continuing our quest in history, we find those who say they are Jews (Judah) also document the existence of Jesus Christ. We should remind ourselves it was they who had Christ crucified. They more than anyone would want to cover up His existence, yet Christ is still mentioned in their religious writing called the Talmud.
This proof though vulgar can be found in Sanhedrin 107B and Sanhedrin 43A of the Babylonian Talmud (The Babylonian Talmud, Volume 21, Tractate Sanhedrin, Part VII, translated into English by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, copyright 1999 by the Israel Institute for Talmudic Publications; published by Random House in New York).
In addition, the Muslims also wrote about Jesus Christ in their religious book the Qur’an where Christ is mentioned 93 times.
Our last glance at history takes us to a book titled “The Abrahamic Covenant” by Dr. E. Raymond Capt.
This is a historical and biblical work that documents the migration of the Tribes of Israel. The Bible states in 2 Kings 17:6, 18:11 the Tribes of Israel were carried away into captivity. God warned the Israelites, if they continued to fall away from His commandments, He would send them into captivity.
The Abrahamic Covenant documents the history of several civilizations who confirm the captivity of the Tribes of Israel, and the book even documents where the tribes ended up and are today.

Let us now turn our attention to the Bible itself, a book that contains the first recorded documentation concerning the shape of the earth in Isaiah 40:22.
“It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers…”
Christopher Columbus is widely thought to be the first one to discover the shape of the earth in 1492 A.D. While the book of Isaiah was written in 649 B.C. Isaiah knew the earth was round over two thousand years before Columbus.
How could he possibly have known without Divine instruction?
In the book of Exodus, the Israelites are finally released from their captivity in Egypt and they set out to find the Promised Land as God told Moses. The book of Exodus documents the places the Israelites traveled through.
Archaeologists have set out on expeditions to discover some of these locations.
“Mountain of Fire – The Search for the True Mount Sinai” is a documentary of one team’s findings. The team found intriguing evidence of the possible sites of:
In another documentary, archaeologist Ron Wyatt discovers the ancient remnants of the city destroyed by God, Sodom and Gomorrah.
How about prophecy?
The Bible contains many prophecies that were foretold hundreds of years before the event actually transpired. One such instance is found in the book of Psalms chapter 22. David is describing Jesus Christ, The Messiah on the Cross nearly one thousand years before the event actually transpired, this is Divine accuracy my friends.
David goes into detail describing in verse 14,
“All my bones are out of joint” and in verse 16, “they pierced my hands and my feet.” David continues in verse 18, “they part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture,” which the Roman soldiers did.
We can document this is what happened to Christ in Matthew 27 where Christ would cry out “Eloi, Eloi lama sabachthani”.
“My God, My God why hast Thou forsaken Me?”
We should note, Christ never called our Creator “God”, Christ always referred to God as “Father.”
You see, Christ was not pleading for His life here. He was pleading for yours, He was, in fact, teaching Psalms 22 which opens with, “My God, My God why hast Thou forsaken Me?”
Even during His final moments in the flesh, suffering in pain, He was still trying to teach those watching Him and ultimately you. Christ would draw in one final breathe in the flesh before perishing on the cross…
As we come to the conclusion of this article, I ask you to draw in one deep breath. Not because you can see it, but because you believe it is there.
