What does it mean to prove something? To demonstrate something’s existence by evidence of seeing or feeling it? We must have some ego to believe that all that is to exist is only what we can measure and perceive. There is no end to the universe, only an infinite expanse of mysteries and unexplored places. If you believe that there is no God, then you believe that everything you know about the universe is the limit of existence itself, but do you remember the first time you saw a strawberry? When you first set eyes on a strawberry as an infant, you saw something you had never seen before, and when you tasted it, a new flavor was added to your palette for the first time, and forevermore, you would call that flavor “strawberry”. Likewise, the kingdom of heaven is a place beyond our current realm of understanding, because we have never seen before the things therein. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” The best Stephen Hawking could say against this was that, “God probably does not exist”, founding his whole theory on doubt instead of understanding that life exceeds what is confined to our world. That’s like a Jamaican saying that polar bears probably do not exist based on observing only what he can see and measure within the confines of his own tropical surroundings. So how can we wrap our heads around something we would otherwise never believe in? Don’t forget that our external eyes are not the only ones we have. The third eye, or our “mind’s eye”, which is created through the regulations of the pineal gland located deep in the center of our brain, is what allows us to see beyond the physical universe. When you think about something, or when you’re having a dream, you can see imagery within your own mind. Haven’t you ever wondered how you are able to see images in your head? Through the movement of our heart and our mind in unison, with knowledge of the unseen, we form faith, the love and belief in something that lies farther than we can perceive. Hawking’s cosmological theory says that everything exists because it exists, but I say to you, don’t dismiss the greater question of it’s creator by saying that things simply are because they are and there’s nothing else to know, because there is much more to know, the universe itself is proof of this, we just haven’t seen it yet.
Today’s headlines are saying that Japanese scientists are now using wild monkeys to track radiation within a forest affected by the recent Fukushima nuclear crisis. Radiation’s an interesting thing, it can’t be seen by the human eye, felt by the human touch, smelt by the nasal senses, tasted by the tongue or heard by the ear. You would never know if you were sitting in a room full of it, yet we have faith that it exists, because when we send monkeys into an infected forest, that monkey will either walk away without a scratch or develop a radioactive decay of its cells and die. The collar it wears around it’s neck measures it’s exposure to ionizing radiation, so essentially, the scientists will know that radiation exists if the monkey’s cells are affected. In this same way, people who have never known or believed in God can see His truth and existence through the affects on those who do believe and love Him. It’s like watching the wind blow by observing how everything is moved by it. If you have trouble believing in something greater than yourself, then observe me, an equivalent to you who does believe in the creator of this world, for if I didn’t, why else would I take it upon myself to separate myself from the world and tell people? Certainly not for any glory of my own, as you should know how ridiculed Christians are these days, but I stand firm as a symbol of His glory. Hebrews 1:11 says, “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The only way we, God’s creations, can understand His greatness in a physical way is through all that He has created in the physical world, as it clarifies in Psalm 19:1-4 “The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays his handiwork. Day after day it speaks out; night after night it reveals his greatness. There is no actual speech or word, nor is its voice literally heard. Yet its voice echoes throughout the earth, its words carry to the distant horizon.” Putting your faith in all that man can do and in the things of this world is putting your eggs in a basket that will wither and decay over time, so put your faith in that which will not perish in time, but continue to live and grow forever.
There are many greater and unseen forces at work in this universe. It’s sad to see that, even when supernatural phenomena can be seen in the physical universe, people would rather take the scientific route and call it “extra-terrestrial” life from other planets, because then, there is no consequence to their evil and no accountability to their sin. Nobody wants to own up to their own shame. If there are aliens, then there is no God, and if there is no God, you can do whatever you like. But, don’t forget that famous Satanist Aleister Crowley advocated the same message, “Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Since this is the same message, that you are free to do as you wish, I do believe that this world will soon see these so called “aliens”, because these are not who they say they are, but rather the spirits of fallen angels who seek around every corner to deceive man with all the temptations of his own selfish desires. This is how he wins his souls. The book of Job tells us that Satan presents himself before the throne of God to accuse mankind for his own sins. So, in the end, the choice really is your own, but you have to question if you really think that the amazing truth about life and the universe is watching TV, partying and living however you want. It’s said that Satan’s greatest lie was convincing man that he didn’t exist. Like I say, if in your belief there is no God, then it doesn’t matter anyway, and you are free to do whatever you want until the day you die. But, if what I’m saying is true, you will not have a lifetime to think it over as your fathers did before you. The end is not near, it’s here, and God’s great signs are already pouring out over the world. This is not a time for blissful ignorance, this is a time for decision. Place your heart with this world and it will be swept away and destroyed like everything else in this world. But, place your heart with He who abides forever and you will taste the fruit of the tree of life.
