There exists a supernatural realm beyond the realities of the physical and tangible world that we live in. This assertion stated above, is the major topical contention between atheists- who do not believe in the existence of God and the believers- who rely deeply on scriptures written by inspiration emanating from the “supernal realm”.
The obvious standpoints of both the atheists and believers cannot be overstated, as clearly, this article will not suffice should we consider the individual concepts each presents in a fair argument. Nevertheless, i tend towards the argument of the believers and tethered to the Faith presented by the scriptures, i reason along those lines; seeking the intricate passages of time and all existential measurements in Creation, of what what purpose these serve and how everything came to being.
Being a Geologist in my university days, i studied the formation of the earth and the various theories and postulations earth scientists,many of them great minds, put forward in an attempt to explain the formative processes of the earth. Many of these theories are rather bogus and lack a foundational basis of existence. The question: “How did it all come to being” Is crucial to understanding the deep mysteries of the creation of the world.
Deliberately circumventing these issues on theories and postulations of science as it attempts to explain creation; i will dwell on the beginning of all things, to whom we must attribute all credit for preciseness and the unique creation of the human being.
As we begin, we must recourse to ancient times, perhaps to a time even before the concept of time, when all was void and nothing existed; save for God- a self-existing Spirit-being without a beginning and no end. Eternal. It is written of him by His Spirit impartation:
“I was set up from everlasting from the beginning, or ever the earth was” (Proverbs 8:23, KJV)
Elsewhere in scripture, he is described as the giver of all good gifts to men in the physical realm and also a key aspect of his being is exposed as the author could describe:
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of Lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning”(James 1:17, KJV)
In these scriptures quoted above from the Bible, and there are many more, we see a self existing Spirit being described as the Father of Lights, not made but simply exists outside creation and outside the concept of time. It is this self existing being that made all things in absolute preciseness of purpose, such that his works are undeniable.
This eternal being, God, whose name is YHWH, simply translated as I AM – amplifying his self sufficiency, created the world and all that walks the earth. It is written:
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”( Genesis 1:1)
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven,and that are in earth, visible and invisible,whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities or powers: all things were created by him and for him.
“He is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17)
Quite a huge assertion these words are. If you are a keen observer of nature’s flora and fauna and you consider each characteristic potential, and that which makes them thrive, survive and compete within natures bio diversities, surely one would marvel at such preciseness of purpose in creation and poke holes in theories of evolutionary transcendence.
The God that i talk about exists though not seen, but nonetheless has made himself known. He resides in the Supernal realm where he sits on a throne in all glory overseeing the affairs of men. It is written:
“The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength,wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also established, that it cannot be moved. (Psalm 93:1)
The extraordinary creation of man, in God’s image, is even more source of Praise for God, the creator of the universe. Anatomically speaking, one with understanding will undeniably attest to the preciseness of the human body-Mind, spirit and soul. The intricate details that explain this preciseness in creation, as God allows, are acknowledged in lower inspiration, by science. But the word of God says:
God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.(Genesis 1:27)
Certainly you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing. You knew me thoroughly; 15 my bones were not hidden from you, when I was made in secret and sewed together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb. All the days ordained for me were recorded in your scroll before one of them came into existence.(Psalm 139:13-16)
Whether it be the supreme excellence in the design of the human brain, or our superior intelligence above all in the animal kingdom and all creation, or the argument of the non-existence of God, the mind has a void that only the Knowledge of God can fill. In the end Deep seeks Deep.
The inner recesses of man, the intangible labyrinth of knowledge and wisdom, is unfulfilled without the knowledge of God, ELOHIM the creator. This is undeniably true, whether you defiantly find solace in experiments or religion of false gods or fraternities of beliefs in opposition to the Knowledge of God, a void still remains.
All deep thoughts of how it all came to being, emanates from this void in the inner recesses of man, and thus as man seeks deep, he finds deep, because he has acknowledged ( faith) the existence of the I AM; just as it is written:
“Now without faith it is impossible to please him, for the one who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”( Hebrew 11:6)
On a last note as we wrap this discourse, the entire bible is an invitation to experience the Creator of the universe, by the way of Jesus-the image of the invisible God and the representation of his essence. God is invisible, concealed yet revealed in the Son(God) of whom it is written:
in these last days he has spoken to us in a son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he created the world. 3 The Son is the radiance of his glory… (Hebrew 1:2-3a.)
When deep seeks deep, it must be by the way of the Son, Jesus Christ through whom everything was created, and in whose image we grow fully mature in the Knowledge of God. Of this, no knowledge in the world compares, for the mysteries of the world is revealed in the image of the Invincible God, Jesus Christ, for He embodies the fullness of deity in bodily form.( Colossians 2:9)
