God’s Proof that He Exists

Read 196.) Isaiah 45:14 thru 48:15. As we read in Isaiah, we note that 45:14 thru 17 is of the Millennium, as the words, ‘never,’ and ‘everlasting,’ are used. Verse 18 is a favorite among Creationists, because it speaks of earth’s purpose, as opposed to all other planets. Earth, alone, was created to be inhabited. The others were created and are devoid of life. All space discovery has supported this, despite every evolutionist’s belief to the contrary, that life will be found elsewhere in the universe. These people claim to have found other habitable planets, but even they are barren of life. The truth is, there are so many necessary variables to make a planet habitable, they actually have not found any that could support life. Chapter 45 ends on a Millennial note of great hope with verses 22 thru 25. But, see 45:23b, and relate it to Paul’s quote of it in Philippians 2:10. Again, another proof-text that Jesus is GOD!

Chapter 46 is against the next great empire that God will raise up. That is Babylon, which will overcome Assyria by 550 BC. God had spared Judah from Assyria, but will let Babylon take her. So, Isaiah is now given prophecy concerning future Babylon, which already exists, but is still small and weak. As with 45:21, and now again, here in 46:10 and 11; God proves Himself real by foretelling what will come, and then bringing it to pass by His own might. Then, with the closing 2 verses, He once again holds out Millennial hope of Israel’s deliverance. With chapter 47, the Lord inveighs against future Babylon still more. Then, in verse 9, He even tells us that Babylon will fall in one day, and it did! Daniel was there and recorded it in chapter 5 of his book, when Cyrus of the Medes took that city.

Closing with chapter 48:1 thru 15, Isaiah is back to his own people, the remnant in Judah. With verses 3 and 5, the Lord again states that He is God by means of foretelling future events. He says He spared Judah from Assyria for His own Name’s sake. He again says that He is the first and the last, just as Jesus did in Revelation chapters 1 and 22. You do realize there can be no two firsts and two lasts. They are One and the same! Jesus is God! As evidence of His existence, He again speaks of Cyrus, and of how he will be used of the Lord to destroy Babylon, which took place in 539 BC. He’s not specifically mentioned here by name, but has been 3 times already in chapters 44 and 45. God, alone, can foretell the future, and then bring it to pass, so as to prove Himself to man. The entire story of ancient Israel, within the scriptures, from Genesis 12:1 thru the 4 Gospels, was all prophesied in advance, by God. That story is of 7 points. The first 4 were given to Abraham, and the remaining 3 to Moses. God then moved to carry them all out, one at a time, each successively in their own order. It’s what the Book is all about!

One Response to God’s Proof that He Exists

  1. The teachings OF Jesus Himself are found here.

    The message of The 11 (“The narrow gate”)

    “The eleven disciples went to Galilee”
    “Where Jesus had told them to go”
    They heard His voice and obeyed His will
    Despite uncertainty down below

    Jesus spoke to them at length
    He wasn’t really a Tweeter
    Only 3 of them wrote Scripture
    Matthew John and Peter

    “Feed my sheep” said Jesus, for though
    “Heaven and earth will pass away”
    I have the words of eternal life and
    “My words will never pass away”

    “Enter through the narrow gate”
    The voice of Jesus through the eleven
    Believe in Jesus “through their message”
    And “eat from the tree of life” in heaven

    Jesus commissioned the eleven
    With “everything I have commanded you”
    “Teaching THEM to obey” Jesus
    And “THEM” means me and you !

    “The command given by our Lord and Savior”
    Is not a Pharisee speaking alone
    It came rather “through your apostles”
    Matthew Peter and John

    If a Pharisee boasts proudly
    Those men added nothing to my message
    He doesn’t speak for Jesus
    His words are nothing more than garbage

    Bibliography
    All “quotes” in “quotation marks” are from the writings of the Apostles Matthew John and Peter in the Bible, mostly the “Red Letter” words of Jesus. [Matthew, John, Revelation, 2 Peter – NIV]
