Confirmation That God Exists

“…that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

1 John 1:3


Ponder This

There was once a college professor who was an atheist and he loved to ridicule his students. One day, he asked his students, “Have any of you ever heard God?” Nobody answered. “Any of you ever seen God?” Nobody answered. “Have any of you ever touched God?” Nobody answered. He said, “So, there is no God.” And the class was silent until one student lifted his hand and said, “Professor, may I ask a question to the class?” He said, “All right.” He said, “Have any of you heard the professor’s brain?” Nobody answered. “Have any of you touched the professor’s brain?” Nobody answered. “Have any of you seen the professor’s brain?” Nobody answered. He said, “Then we can conclude the professor has no brain, according to his logic.”

John said, “that which we have seen and heard we declare to you,” and then the Bible says if we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater. (See 1 John 5:9.) We are not dependent upon convincing speech, illustration, or logic to believe in God. Thank God the Holy Spirit of God confirms in our hearts that what He’s saying is true. That is the witness of God. Jesus is an eternal fact, Jesus is a physical fact, Jesus is a spiritual fact, and the Holy Spirit of God testifies unto the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Have you seen and experienced the truth about God through His Holy Spirit?
  • Has God ever asked you to stand for Him when others made illogical arguments against Him?
