Book Cover & Preview Text
When the Lord made man, He placed within him a hunger that drives him to search for a power much higher than himself, one that he may refer to as god. Man is smart enough to ask himself the questions, “Who am I? What am I? What am I doing here? And where do I go from here?” Man's life presents to him more questions than answers, questions like, "Why, for what reason, or to do what?" That drive is so great within man that he will pull a god out of his imagination, and worship him. There is a void within man that can only be filled with the one and only living and true God, YAHWEH, the Creator, and Supreme Ruler, of heaven and earth.
Man has always looked up to what has fed into his life, or that which has provided necessary things to him. That is why we sometimes find him worshiping the sun, the earth, the sea, the trees, animals, etc. Then man has a tendency to reverence things that he perceives to be mightier than he, and things that he believes can destroy him. So sometimes we find man worshiping the mountains, volcanoes, thunder and lightning, and again the sea, and the wind. Then man has always had a reverence for things that he does not know, things that are hidden from him.
When Paul went to Mars Hill, in Athens Greece, he found alters to every god known to them. He even found an alter that was dedicated to the unknown god. The god that they did not know was YAHWEH. This book is dedicated to helping all people, everywhere, to find YAHWEH, and to ending their search.
I believe in God; and I believe that if anyone had experienced the things that I have experienced with God, they would believe in Him too.
The things that we believe in are the things that we have some kind of association with. Our beliefs occupy space within our minds, and they send us on a search for those things that are compatible with those beliefs. We long for confirmation. There is a strong resistance to those things that tend to supplant our established beliefs. Therefore, we need to scrutinize those things in which we place our faith. We need to divide those things into different categories.
1. The things that we suppose
2. The things that we think
3. The things that people who we believe in believe
4. The things that we believe
5. The things that we are believing in, or on
6. The things that we know to be true
7. The things that are proven to be true, based upon things that we believe, but are not necessarily true. (Built on sinking sand)
We don’t see pain, but we have some kind of association with it; so we believe in them. We don’t see electrons, but we see what they do; so we believe in them. We can’t see magnetism or gravity, but we can see the effects of these on different objects, so we believe in them.
There are two things that are said over and over in the Bible: “Behold,” and “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” The things that we know and believe in, are the things that we have looked for, and have beheld; or the things that we have listened to, and have heard; things that we have come to understand. People’s faith is made up of the things that they are hoping, and evidence of things that they cannot see. It’s called a belief system. These are things that people depend on, and hope that they are right.
When a couple gets married, they are showing trust in their spouse, and hope that their marriage lasts. When there is a person whom you consider to be your friend, you have in some way, bound yourself to that person; and you are hoping that they will always prove to be a friend. There may come a time when you discover that that person, in whom you have placed your trust, is proven not to be your friend, but instead an enemy.
Sometimes we believe in things that are solid, steadfast, and unmovable; and then again we may believe in things that even from the very beginning, were not very trustworthy. If we had beheld, perhaps we would have seen it; and if we had listened and heard, we would have understood that this thing or person couldn’t be trusted.
The chair that looks weak, and that one that you have seen to let others down, and about which you have heard that it has failed to hold others up, is a chair that can’t be trusted.
When you believe, and really do believe, in things or people that are untrustworthy, those beliefs stand in the way of your progress, and your true destiny. Therefore, false beliefs are very detrimental to the well being of anyone who holds these false beliefs to be dear to their heart. In your heart is where it all happens. Everything that you see in this world came out of somebody’s heart.
If any god is to emerge as the one and only true God, he must meet these criteria:
1. He must be beyond our ability to understand:
2. He must be intelligent, beyond our wildest imaginations:
3. He must not have to give account to anyone:
4. He must transcend every law that there is:
5. He must not be limited by time and space:
6. He must have imagined everything that is:
7. He must have created everything that is:
8. He must know how everything that He created works:
9. He must be able to communicate with everything that He made:
10. He must not need help from anything that He has made:
YAHWEH is that God, and it is icing on the cake, for this God to tell us how and when he did all of these things, and to offer us proof of His existence, through fulfilled prophecy, and through miracles, signs, and wonders. And it is nothing short of mind blowing, for this great God to communicate with us, and to enter into agreements with us; thus binding, or obligating Himself, to perform the things that He had promised. This challenges us to prove Him. I believe in the Lord our God, and I believe in His Son Jesus.
