Without God

Good day to each of you reading this column – I have taken a quick break from the Ten Commandments on the above subject.

Let’s begin with the following to start with a chuckle:

Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take the time to go to a restaurant 2 times week: a little candlelight dinner, soft music, and a slow walk home. She goes Tuesdays; I go Wednesdays.

On the first day of spring my true love gave to me: 5 packs of seeds, 4 sacks of fertilizer, 3 cans of weed killer, 2 bottles of insect spray, and a pruning knife for the pear tree.

Fred: How did you get your hand full of splinters?
Bill: I was out hunting and caught a timber wolf bare handed.

Ok, I do hope that brightens your day a bit—let’s turn to the subject at hand—without God—Ponder on those two words for a minute—What if there was no God? Where would you be without God? If no God, then no eternal life?

To the Christian who believes in God, there is no doubt whatsoever that God was, is, and always will be our eternal creator for he is the “I am”! But to those who don’t believe in God, are without God, believe in Gods, believe in Satan and demons, or have their form of God or Gods—they have just as much right to believe in their forms as we, the Christian do. Fellow Christian do you agree with that statement?

How do you defend the existence of God? Do you take God for granted and “use” him only when it serves you or you are in trouble? Do you have evidence in your life that you are with God and without God?

There are a couple of subjects at social gatherings that get people talking: politics and religion. If the subject of God arises, do you take a backseat and no comment, just say that I believe in God and leave it at that, tell that party that you are a Christian and that is what you believe or witness for God? Do you think that witnessing “turns people off” that you are discussing? Do people think of you as a “Jesus Freak”? Are you afraid of being labeled as a “counterfeit Christian” or one who talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk?

Lots of questions to answer, so let’s go back to the original question—what if there was no God, no Jesus? We, as Christians, take for granted that there truly is a God and that there was a Jesus. So we are at a social gathering and I were to ask you—How do you know there is a God and Jesus, what would you say?

Before you answer that—think about the following—Without God, there would be no creation—nothing would exist on this earth? No air, no food, no water—nothing. Without God, man would not have a soul, spirit or body. Without God, there would be no eternal life. Without God, man and woman would no exist. Without God, the star, planets, and all things that make up space would not be here. Without God, life as we know it, would be void of salvation, eternal life and a new Heaven and a new Earth.

I am sure you could add to the above column, but you get the idea of the meaning “Without God”. You see, their must be an originator for In the Beginning. I am not smart enough to put together all the intricacies of the human body let alone the animal kingdom or for that matter, any other kingdom.

If someone were to say to me, who is God or why do you believe in God, then I always utilize the word of God and I am humbled—Turn with me to Job 38—41:34 and read what Gods says to Job.

Please take the time to read these chapters slowly and see if you can answer—I think you will agree that human could answer these questions posed to Job.

As you read those three chapters in Job 38-41, ask yourself, where would you be without God? As you read each chapter, “Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!” Without God there would be no Bible, no solid foundation and no “I AM”.

As I conclude, let’s set the stage—God hath asked the question to Job above? God did not ask another person, he did not confer with anyone, but he confronted Job directly and in return, Job responds in Job 42:1-5 (NIV) Then Job replied to the Lord: I know that you can do all things, no plan of yours can be thwarted. You asked, “Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?” Surely, I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful to know. “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.

Are you or I any different than Job? Without God, our ears would have never heard, or eyes seen God. Without God, well, here are two verses that provide us with the solution of With God: For God so loved the world that He gave the only begotten Son, so that everyone believing in Him should not be lost but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son to the world that He might condemn the world; but that he might save the world through Him. John 3:16-17 (FF)

For me, God said it, I believe it and that settles it!

Fellow Christian, let us not think of without God but With God—All things are possible.

May God Bless you and May you Bless God for all that he provides.

Until next time

Jeff

About Us

Understanding

I think you will agree that if we were under God’s laws and not those of man that our world would be ideal. God has addressed every issue in his laws with a solution that makes sense and could and should be used by all. I have been studying numerous books on his laws with the KJV Bible being the center for knowledge and understanding for many years and wish to share my thoughts and welcome your thoughts…
