G O D

Is He a Myth or a Reality?

   The heathen of every age, from the beginning of man to the present day, who knew not God, have felt that there was some supreme power controlling, and responsible for the forces about them that they could not understand, -- and so they made idols to represent the "unknown," and worshiped these idols.
   There seems to be an idea of God born in mankind. Ovid says:
   "There is a God within us, and intercourse with heaven."
   "If God did not exist it would be necessary to invent him." -- Voltaire.
   God is a reality, -- "The great first cause, least understood." -- Pope. "I am God, and there is none like me." -- Isa.46:9.  "The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork." -- Psalms 19:1.
 

Who Is God?  Did He Come by Chance?

The Old Testament Hebrew word, God, conveys as its primary meaning, power. We are under the necessity of believing in the real existence of an infinite, perfect Being, of a sufficient cause for the universe, an intelligent author of order, and the numerous contrivances observable in nature, a law-giver, and judge of human beings endowed with a sense of duty.
   Cruden, of Cruden's Concordance, -- says that "God is one of the names which we give to that eternal, infinite, and incomprehensible Being, the Creator of all things; who preserves and governs everything by his almighty power and wisdom, and who is the only object of our worship."
   The omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Being whom we call God, has existed from all eternity, is "without beginning of days or end of life," the great I Am, the same yesterday, today and forever, the "Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end."
   He is incomprehensible to poor finite man, but that is all the more a reason why he should be believed in. If we could understand him, then we would be his equals. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, und my thoughts than your thoughts." -- Isa.55:9.


God Incomprehensible

Because we cannot fully understand God is no reason that we should not believe in him. "The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children." -- Deut.29:29.
   A correct system of reasoning should establish God.
   "What can be more foolish than to think that this rare fabric of heaven and earth could come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster? To see rare effects, and no cause; a motion without a mover; a circle without a center; a time without an eternity; a second without a first; these are things so against philosophy and natural reason, that he must be a beast in understanding who can believe in them; and that which is made, is, while that which made it is not! This folly is infinite." -- Jeremy Taylor.


To The Unknown God

   Cicero, the Greek, said that there was something in the nature of things which the mind of man, which reason, which human power cannot effect, and certainly that which produces this must be better than man. What can this be but God?
   The Greeks had many gods which they worshiped, but their senses told them that there was a power greater than man, -- and so, along with their numerous other images, they erected one to the "Unknown God," and it was this that prompted the Apostle Paul, as he entered Athens, to remark: "For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, 'To the Unknown God.' Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you." -- Acts 17:23.


Many Things Prove the Existence of God

   The screen of nature is too thin to keep God from bursting through. It is impossible to govern the world without God. God is great and he will be sought; he is in science, in history, and in omniscience.
   There are times when men's thoughts turn to God, for the idea is born within; the infidel with his head pillowed upon his dying bed, weakens to listen to the comforting promises of the God of the Bible; all astronomers believe in God, as Galileo expressed it in studying the heavens, "O God, I think thy thoughts after Thee." Napoleon's mind turned to God while looking into the sky at night, when he exclaimed, "Who made all this?"  He knew that it did not come by chance.
   "The world that we inhabit must have had an origin; that origin must have consisted in a cause; that cause must have been intelligent; that intelligence must have been supreme; and that supreme, which always was and is supreme, we know by the name of God."
   He should be the object of all our desires, the end of all our actions, the principle of all our affections, and the governing power of our lives. Our accountability at the end of life's journey will be to him, whether we realize it or not, for we are not here by chance, nor without a purpose.
   Daniel Webster when asked what was the greatest thought that had ever entered his mind, said significantly, -- "My accountability to God."
   Astronomy proves God's existence; "The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork," also the fulfilled prophecies of the Scriptures prove that God lives and reigns in the affairs of men (prophetic fulfillment will be taken up in a later chapter).
   It might be important to know God and his requirements;  for, "He shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil." -- Eccl.12:14.

We don't know what is going on in this world because we have no clue as to who the Illuminati are and what they have in mind for you and me -  Lucifer Rising global power elite - You can't defeat the enemy if you don't know who it is. We simply cannot see the adversary because our senses have been blinded. In other words, most of us are programmed to pull the strings for those who enslave us. Solution - read if you have time, because at school they don't teach how to guard our freedom, neither do they teach who our enemy is. Read, read Lucifer Rising  by Philip Jones  you owe it  to your family and children. Stay close to God who made this nation great, not to the Angel of Light (Lucifer) who has lately gained the ascendancy, who claims to bring peace and love and all sorts of new technologies. The adherents of this movement believe that peace & love are constantly increasing but in reality we are getting deeper into wars and hatred every day. False hope abounds, it keeps us pacified, that's what the enemy wants. Rumors, lies and disinformation are being used to completely subdue us. We are being told that the cabal of tyrants presently dominating the world is losing on all fronts, and that soon they will be overcome and arrested, with the good guys (white dragon society, and other hidden, but powerful groups) taking over and making the world a better place. Not only that, but a perfect world is envisioned, where everybody has work to make a decent living, where everybody is happy. Again, these are lies and disinformation giving us false hope to keep us pacified and peaceful while the cabal of tyrants is busy putting on the finishing touches to make their oppressive one world government become reality, at which point most everybody will finally wake up, to realize that the dreaded New World Order has arrived.
