Nothing Should Exist

nothing should exist

Is There A Really Good Explanation
For The Existence Of Anything

The most basic understanding in the world should be that there is no reason for our existence. How, can we possibly exist? The explanations of science about our existence are unproven and cannot be proven. They represent the best that can be done on a subject that cannot be understood, but science is over zealous. The science I am referring to is really bad science, the willful prejudice of the elite University science, the atheist / at best agnostic driven scientists or those in science afraid of the repercussions of differing on certain “sacred” cows. Science wants to be heroic and in their pride they claim the answer. Their answer is ever-changing, but always points to a non-creator solution. It just happened over a very long period of time. If you could look at a rock made up of various minerals surrounded in an atmosphere of hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen and you could somehow watch that rock for 13 billion years what would happen? Would it create or evolve into anything or just sit there. “They” say it exploded, but why? How could the chaos of an explosion create such order? How could a big bang create the universe in its perfection, result in life, and in intelligent life? Even if something did happen, where did the minerals, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen come from? Clearly, there is something missing. Why does time exist, why are there living things much less intelligence. The scientific line of thinking is not scientific because it is just theory laced with what people want to believe. The unthinkable alternative is a Creator and the Creator is the God of the bible.
There is design everywhere, in everything. There is incredible complexity in the universe, in our planet, in living things and in intelligence. Science cannot explain God because humankind is a lower form in finite dimensions. As opposed to intelligence evolving, intelligence was there in the beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The existence of “something” did not just happen out of unintelligent matter (primordial soup)!! We are created beings and created for a purpose. People who miss out on heaven and suffer an awful fate will wonder why the obviousness of God and creation were missed. In some way they made poor choices, selfish choices, shortsighted choices favoring their present mortal life. Ultimately, these lost souls choose to believe in themselves or others and rejected God. God, the God of the bible makes it clear in scripture that He is God and Creator. Beginning in Genesis (In the Beginning God) and throughout scripture such as the verses below:

Psalm 19.1

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Romans 1.20

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse

It Is The Craziest Thing

The true, essential purpose in life is to figure out the meaning of life and how to succeed during the allowed time. That is, during your lifetime. Do you think something else is more important? God’s perfect test will sort good from evil by attitudes/actions. Do you care about truth or are you too busy getting all you can out of the present life? Good is doing God’s will, whereas evil is living in God-defined sin and never being forgiven. It is the craziest thing to deny the God of the bible as Creator. God offers a great eternity, but is frequently rejected because His laws are difficult. Indeed, the God of the bible asks a great deal and His will does not align with the selfish, proud attitude of the world. This is why few will find heaven. The scriptures are clear on this and indicates friendship with the world is enmity with God.

James 4.4

4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Jesus clarifies the world in relation to those who are in Christ in John 15.

John 15.18,19

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

Many people will not accept God’s ways because of the “here and now” sacrifice. Instead they try to “straddle the fence” living for God AND in the world, because they cannot give up the things of the world. God knows the heart and that people lay up treasure in accordance with their hearts either for earthly or heavenly wealth.

Matthew 6.19-21

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

So, as you look around, where are people laying up their treasures? God is very clear about those whose heart is in the things of this life and in the process reject God’s ways. There are numerous examples of those who fail in God’s eyes as they try to serve God and at the same time gain all they can in this life. In the parable of the seed we learn the seed represents the word of God and how people receive the word is compared to how seed grows in different soils. Of course, Jesus is describing how the word grows in different hearts. The seed that is among thorny ground grows up, but is strangled out by the thorns. That is hearts with good intentions begin to grow in the word, but are strangled out by the love of the world.
As you honestly look around the world, how many people live in the world, how many people live partially in the world and partially for God? God in Revelation 3.14 particularly dislikes those who “straddle the fence” referring to them as lukewarm. It is the “craziest thing” to fail to see God as the God of the bible. Just as crazy is seeing God as the God of the bible, but failing to do everything that God commands. You will either recognize the seriousness of God in relation to sin and obedience now or wish you did when it is everlastingly too late. If you are worried about the God of heaven being threatening to you, then read “Fear and Understand God” and realize God is threatening and those who succeed will fear God.

What Is Non-Existence

Just like it is difficult to imagine a world without time, so conceiving of non-existence is also complicated. Some, nonetheless expect to close their eyes the last time, breathe their last and then no longer exist. One might imagine this would be a good end compared eternal suffering for how they lived. Death arrives and your body is clearly gone, but so is your mind, your thinking. There is no longer any pain, any suffering, there is just nothing and really not even nothing. A cosmic accident (most believe) brought you into existence and now you have played your role and have exited existence. Non-existence is a very overwhelming thought that brings no peace, just wonderment. The popularity of non-existence is huge because the alternative found in scriptures is very fearful for those who do not live by God’s rules. Yet, God offers no pain, no suffering, no tears with an eternal EXISTENCE. The descriptions of heaven are beyond comprehension in terms of the wonder, truly it is the prize, the only prize that matters.

1 Peter 1.3-5

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 
5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Indeed, the inheritance is reserved in heaven for you. You see, WE DO EXIST and are living on the stage God designed – a perfect design. Of course, there is a perfect test to determine who is worthy. It is not a test like you or I would devise for ourselves or others, but is designed to fulfill God’s purpose. It is a test where you will either trust yourself and/or others OR you will trust God. The reason anything exists is because of God, not because of some unsubstantiated, un-provable theory of science. The ideas of humankind in relation to existence are so unrealistic and provide no answers and thus lead to the conclusion that nothing should exist. God, as creator answers all the objections by providing a reasonable answer. God’s answer is supernatural (“In the beginning God created”). The nature of the bible answer is logical since it would take something much beyond what humankind can conceive of to achieve the existence of the complex and wonderful world we live. Nonetheless, the world in its defiance selects to have the world created by non-intelligence. In the process of their guessing, the world never answers the question why does ANYTHING exist? Why does the smallest most insignificant particle of matter exist? Nothing should exist unless there is a designer, a creator – something intelligent much beyond the capability of humankind. God describes Himself in the creation process as speaking (or thinking) everything into existence. God expects a person to see Him in His creation as pointed out above in Psalm 19.1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” Again from above, Romans 1.20, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”
So God opens His revelation to humankind with, “In The Beginning God Created The Heavens And The Earth.”
Humankind explains their version of the beginning by indicating there was already something in existence, maybe some element or elemental particle. There are many variations, but they begin with something and frequently call it primordial (ancient, primitive, elemental) soup. It is something that exists and is non-intelligent and certainly undefined. In other words, humankind does not know, but nonetheless teach it to children and the populace accepts it.

The Answer Is Right in Front of You, but you must overcome

If you were to search the scriptures having a love of the truth, you would find God’s purpose and His plan. One might ask, does God require a love of the truth?

2 Thessalonians 2.10

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Jesus refers to Himself in terms of being the truth.

John 14.6

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Freedom comes from the truth.

John 8.32

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to guide the apostles into all truth after His death.

John 16.13

13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth …

Obedience to the truth is required.

1 Peter 1.22

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart

Truth is central to the success of every person and here is where the enabling, “wisdom of the wise” of “so-called” intellectuals misleads many. One common tool for misleading is well conceived rationalization developed to confuse, but also convince. Such things as:
> Everyone may not have access to the truth – implying unfairness in the bible way
> People see or interpret the bible differently – implying no one can get to the truth
> The God of the bible is too harsh – implying the God of the bible is cruel, thus not God
> Many have been indoctrinated and they are not at fault – implying some have been overcome, but not their fault
> Some people cannot comprehend the scriptures – implying the scriptures are too complicated to understand

In the pages of heaven coach and “What Is Life All About” all these objections and many more are answered. However, the only answer needed is, “Fear God and Keep His Commandments.” Why provide people excuses for rejecting God’s commands? Instead, recommend obedience to the creator and taking serious the words of the creator? When you understand God, you will understand that there is no excuse for rejecting God’s ways and in fact the many excuses of humankind expose those who love themselves or the wisdom of other people more than God. You need to reject the “wisdom of the wise” and know that they will all reap the fearful surprise of their continuing existence following their deaths.
As you understand more and more about God, you will see that God can handle your every concern with perfect fairness. We may not understand this because we assume unsolvable conflicts in love and justice, but with God this is not a problem. It is unwise to criticize God and even His ability, or His way of doing things since we are infinitely less than perfect, less than capable of creating all things by simply saying or thinking them. God is just as perfect in His judgments as He was in His creation of all things. All things are happening in accordance with HIS PURPOSE and that is frequently different than what humankind understands is the Divine purpose. This is easily remedied by having a love of the truth as opposed to a love of the world.

Yes, God wants people to succeed and you will need the truth to be successful in life. God will judge people successful, worthy of heaven in terms of their relationship with His Son. That relationship comes from finding, obeying and living the truth. We are not talking about a certain level of required intelligence because God has made the scriptures in relation to salvation quite simple. The wisdom of the wise in scripture has always been condemned because it is really “proud wisdom.” It is the wisdom found in many colleges and taught to young people throughout their education. It is common sense to see God in creation, it is the “wisdom of the wise” to outsmart themselves and find answers other than God.

Think and realize nothing should exist and yet it does. How can this be? Well, “In The Beginning God” and so in the very first verse from God’s word we have the answer. Nothing should exist and because it does, God also exists. The next step is that God is the God of the bible and He reveals WHY there is existence. As you study with the attitude of loving the truth you will come to know that YOU are God’s purpose for creation.
