Is There A God?

Pastor J. R. Wilhite

Have you ever wondered about God?

Is there a God?

If there is, how can He let so many bad things happen?

Why does He not just show Himself?

If God did create all of this why does He not just fix what is broken?

You know those are some good questions, and I have a few more Like:

What does it take to be of God's kingdom?

What do I have to give up?

What do I gain?

Want some more good questions? Well, let's start with the old question of evolution vs creation.

Which sounds more off the wall? Evolution Vs Creation...

All existence was formed out of chaos, it was an accident. Out of this chaos came life in the form of small cells in the oceans and the cells grew and one day left the ocean. Then it raised up on two legs and began to form into apes, and as time went on apes became man.


Now, do you really believe all of the above? Sit back for a minute and review the theory of evolution. Because what is stated above is a short version of the theory of evolution. The long version sounds even more off the wall.


God created the heavens and the earth. And then He created all life on the earth.

Now, really isn't it easier to believe in a supreme being that created all that is, than to think it is one great accident?

Want proof of the Bible? Creation was supposed to take place in seven days, but we know based on what Peter said in:

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

So based on Peter's statement we learn time does not exist for God. What is time? It is a way to measure, to count down to the end of something, like our life. Since God and His kingdom don't age, or end, then they don't have time. Also this tells us it is in another dimension.

aybe this could explain UFO's. Every time the two dimensions are connected (like a door opening between the two) a flash of light could be produced, like that as described by some who have seen UFO's. It appeared as light and then streaked across the sky and then was gone. How about a dimensional door opening and closing?

If God is supreme, it would be nothing for Him to create all of this in seven days, seven minutes, or even seven seconds, but let's just say it took seven thousand years.

Now to get a handle of how easy it is for God to create this, think about an ant farm, or a fish aquarium, either can be very simple or very elaborate. However, neither one, no matter how elaborate we make them really takes that long, and once finished, and you look in, it is like another world. You can lose yourself watching your fish or ants. Now, I am not saying we are a bunch of ants for God to step on and crush. It is just a simple version to help us see the over all picture.

Now let's poke another hole in evolution. Evolution has depended on the idea that it took millions and billions of years for everything to have evolved. The number 1 way of dating is called carbon date testing, which by measuring the levels of carbon 12 in fossils would tell its age. The only problem is, that now science has proved there was a flood, and this flood (Noah's flood) did cover the whole earth some 4,500 years ago. Big deal, right, well, science has proven that before this flood the earth was surrounded by water. This water sack the earth was in, would not allow carbon 14 radiation to reach the earth. You see carbon 12 comes from the sun and that sack of water the earth was in, prevented any of the sun's radiation or carbon 14 to enter. So anything with carbon 14 had to be less than 4,500 years old.

Just think, the evolutionists say that dinosaur bones were found with carbon 14. So I guess that blows the theory of a meteor or comet coming to earth and causing the death of the dinosaurs, because by their own statements it would take many thousands of years for the earth to recover from such an event.

We have historical records that date back to within 1,500 years of the flood. That proves that there was life and it was mankind. So if the dinosaurs were destroyed by some impact on the earth of some meteor or comet, and then from that things calmed down and life started over and man came from the ashes, how could all of this taken place in such a short time period? It could not, and they will tell you themselves it would have taken millions of years. If carbon 14 could not penetrate the earth until after the flood and the flood happened 4,500 years ago, and dinosaur bones have been found with carbon 14, then how could this be? It could not... based on evolution.

Based on the Bible it could. The Bible tells us in Genesis chapters 6-8 about the flood known as Noah's flood. This was where man had been perverted and God was ready to give up on man. At least until He found Noah, and Noah was perfect in his generations. We also know that Noah took two of every living creature on the Mark with him. We also know that the size of the dinosaurs (with their relatively small lungs) would require a denser atmosphere and more pure oxygen. After the earth lost it's outer water shield, the atmosphere started expanding, causing it to be less concentrated and the oxygen less pure. Along with this, the vegetation would be less abundant. With it being harder to breathe and having less food the dinosaurs went the same way as so many extinct creatures.

Okay, why has God allowed all this to happen?

Well, first let us look at what God had planned. He created this earth for mankind. Then He created Adam and Eve, and He gave them a lease on the earth. It was theirs to do with as they pleased. God wanted mankind to have free will, not to be robots. He could make robots, but He wanted man to procreate, and fill the earth with free thinking, free willed beings that would be a part of His family. He wanted children.

Then Adam did the unthinkable, he gave his lease away to the only one that would dare mess things up. This one was one of God's highest Angels ever. His name was Lucifer and he was the only anointed arch angel ever.

Lucifer like so many of us allowed pride to over take and over power him. He got the idea that he could become God, and he caused division in heaven. So God did the only thing He could, he cast Lucifer out, Bbt in the process He created His biggest problem.

Why not just erase Lucifer and his followers? Good question. God could not go against His own words (law), and God had given a lease of the earth to man for a period of time. Since Adam had given it to Lucifer, God had to honor this, at least until the end of the lease.

Are you wondering what I mean by lease? Well, by the time we get through with this study, you will understand.

So now God has His creation leased to one who is not of Him anymore, one who is perverted. Knowing this, God knew full well that Satan (Lucifer) would pervert all that God had done and said. So God has to find those individuals here who will work with Him. Since God is honorable, the only way into this earth is through woman.

The difference between God and Satan was and is, that God is a gentleman who always gives choices and never forces Himself on anyone. Satan always forces, and never gives choices.

So as time went by God would find a man here or there and even, occasionally, a woman that he could work through. Yes, God even appeared, in the form of a cloud by day and fire by night to he children of Israel, but they asked that He no longer would appear to them. Even while He did, they still sinned and sinned BIG time. So His presence did not prevent sin.

What is sin? Sin is a thing you do that leads to death. Yes, even something as minor as a lie is a sin, and it leads to death. The reason is, anything that is of God is life. Anything that is not of God is of Satan. Anything of Satan is death and destruction. God is not a man that He could lie. God is truth, so the lie is truth perverted. Haven't you noticed how lies hurt people?

Let's get back on track.

God sees that His being in the presence of man, visible to man, does not work. So He decides that the removal of His visible presence may help be better. How could that help? By causing man to seek God on a higher plane than this physical one. Too many seek God for the wrong reasons, and in doing so never find Him. He is often only sought out by man, when man is in trouble. Read the Old Testament and see how many times Israel ignored God until they needed Him. Notice how fast they sought Him out, but only when He was needed.

You say you have sought out God, and you found nothing. First, how long did you seek Him? Second, what did you do to seek Him? Did you, for a day or two (or less) moan and groan, expecting Him to show up and bail you out? It takes some a year, two or more, and others have taken as short as days to find God. But first you have to get through a lot of lies to get to the truth. When you get to the truth you will always find God. He is there trying to get to you, but He will not break His words (law).That would pervert the things He has set up. He will not be found in the lie.

What is the lie? That God will hear and answer you if you are good and moan loud enough. Moaning does not move God, faith does.

What is faith? Faith is having confidence in, trust in, and reliance on Christ for salvation.

Christ is a Greek word which means The Anointed One. Anointed means the Spirit of God, the Power and wisdom of God. So faith would be having confidence in, trust in and reliance on the power and wisdom of God to save you from whatever you need saving from. It is like being a child. Have you ever noticed how a child trusts, and has confidence in and reliance on his/her parents for everything? Well, faith that moves God is like that faith a children have in their parents. That is how you contact God.

But, we have been filled with the lie. The lie of church leaders, politicians, and even family members. For instance, how many of you bring up your children or were brought up believing in Santa Claus? We tell our children this lie and ask them to believe. Then, they get old enough to know better. How hard is it for them to believe in someone they can not see, when the one they could see (in a red suit) turned out to be a lie? How much does good old Santa seem like God? Songs, that say he knows when you are naughty or nice, or he's coming to town so don't cry or he will know.

It's not just Santa Claus. How about the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny? Harmless, NO, not when you are talking about a child during the time of his/her life when they are most impressionable. These are not the only lies. In the past, we have been led to believe in politicians, only to be lied to and then let down. The same goes for church leaders.

I do not believe in man, but in God only, because God can not let me down. Only man can let me down. God never set things up this way, man did.

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

Now we have all the tools that we need to find God and live the life we should. The tools are called, the Bible, faith, and prayer. Why does God not show Himself? He does, but we are to blind to see Him. We are blinded by the things around us, TV, movies, music, etc.

You know what is really funny, we are afraid to get to know God, but we allow ourselves to be programed by people we do not even know Him. As far as we know these people could be ax murders, child molesters, rapist. etc... Who am I talking about? The people who write and produce the TV shows and movies we watch, Or program the games our children play on X-BOX.

Why does God allow so many bad things happen? HE does not, WE do. We have an enemy and we ignore him and allow him to do these things. Oh yes, Satan is still here, and he really does not want you to realize he is still here, or even that he exists.

John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

God is love, but the only way He could help us was give us a way out. The way was through His Son. He does not condemn us if we do not choose Him. We condemn ourselves. If we choose God's way, we choose life. What do we give up? Death and destruction. People who drink, smoke or have sex with their spouse are not condemned. The smoker or drinker may shorten his/her life here, but they are not condemned. Yes, a lot of people quit smoking and drinking when they get to know God. Not because they have to, but because they want to, because they found more in life. They found something with which to replace the artificial, external, physical stimuli.

God made it very simple, believe in His Son. If you do sin, repent and God will forgive you. It can not be any simpler; it takes very little out of you.

If you want more out of life and you want to avoid those terrible things from happening to you and your family, you will have to read the manual. You will have to spend time with the One who wrote the manual. Then you will avoid most of those terrible and awful things you hear about. The manual is the Bible, and the One who wrote it is God. The terrible things, are any things you don't want in your life.

My best advice for you is read the book of John in the Bible. Read it over and over until you have a full understanding, and while you read, ask God through His Spirit to help enlighten you to understand what you are reading.

Talk to God, He is real. If you do it enough and give Him a chance to get a word in edgewise, you will hear Him. Do not set a time limit. Set yourself to do it until you know what the following verse means, because you have heard it;

Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

I have tried to answer some of the questions here that we had at the beginning, but due to the limitations of time and space, I was only able to skim over some and give you a very short version of others. If you research on your own what I have started here I think you will find that a lot of scientists are even finding God.

My prayer for you is that you find God and have a beautiful relationship with Him. (Amen)
