Please earnestly watch the above video before reading this blog, as it is essential to theme of this post.

I got this video recently and I sent it around to some friends and it got a good reception. While the video can have a different effect on each one individually, allow me to share how it affected me personally. After watching the video, I sat back in awe of the greatness of our God. It emphasized the creativity, splendour and magnificence of the almighty God.

Seeing the diverse types of birds in all their shapes and sizes, with their rich and myriad of colours, and interacting with the various elements of life was just a blessing to look upon . At my first viewing, I watch the video 3 times and that shows how much it touched me.

Watching the video reminded me about what God told us in Romans regarding seeing Him.

Romans 1:20 (AMP) “For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense”.

God is saying in this passage that He is real, and all we have to do is just look and see in order to believe. He wants us to pause and behold the magnificence of the world around us. See the diversity and complexity, the various fruits, forestry, vegetation, animals, birds, fishes, reptiles, insects, humankind, the four seasons, the ocean and atmosphere. Just look up and behold the outer reaches of the universe, where planets rotate while still revolving around the sun without colliding.

Some would say that this mastery was created by a big bang theory. But how can that be, “How can chaos create complexity”? How can nothingness put together such completeness? How can emptiness form greatness? This can only be done by someone great and powerful. This can only be done by an entity such as a God! The one who lived before time (Genesis 1:5) and who will live after time (Revelation 10:6). It is He who created this galaxy and time period for us to dwell within.

Now, given that we believe in a God based on what we see in His creation, which God should we follow? Where should we look to find Him? This choice is essential, since many claim to know God, as can be seen by the many religions of this world. Therefore, let me share what the bible says about identifying a true God.

Isaiah 41:22-24 (NIV-WS) 22 “Tell us, you idols, what is going to happen. Tell us what the former things were, so that we may consider them and know their final outcome. Or declare to us the things to come, 23 tell us what the future holds, so we may know that you are gods. Do something, whether good or bad, so that we will be dismayed and filled with fear. 24 But you are less than nothing and your works are utterly worthless; whoever chooses you is detestable”

So God is saying that a true God knows the things which happened before time and what things are to come and how exactly they will play out. A God, a true God knows the future.

Now let’s hear more about this from the book of Isaiah in verse 46:5-10 (NIV):

“With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared? 6 Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it. 7 They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer; it cannot save them from their troubles. 8 “Remember this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. 10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”

A true God, the only God, tells us of what is to come, and it unfolds just as He stated it. There are many instances in the bible where prophecy came through. However, I would simply like to put forward a prophecy that can happen in our lifetime because of technological enhancements. I speak about being able to purchase with a mark on our person.

Revelation 13:16–17 – “16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Technology such as “Amazon Go” can make this happen right now.

Again, God can clearly be seen in this fulfilment of prophecy as we are well poised for it. How can since the ancient time of Christ, a prophecy of this nature can be made? This can only happen by someone who knows the future.

In these examples of nature and prophecy, God can be clearly seen, but for some reason we are not seeing. It seems that we are too blinded by sin, the cares of this world and the concrete jungle we call home. Too busy to take time and examine what is really happening, and ask ourselves some hard questions about life, our life. Stop taking it for granted that we can live without consequences and there is nothing beyond the grave! Stop living a faithless life!

Today I wanted to remind us that God is real, and we must stop our sinning.  We must live an upright life to please Him, so that we can be with Him in heaven after we die. Don’t just live for the here and now, but live for the thereafter also.; but the thereafter, starts with the here and now. The evidence is clear and overwhelming, “since Nature Testifies and Prophecy Notifies us of this fact“. Therefore, lets decide to commit to living for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ today, because tomorrow might not be promised to you.
