Question #2:
How Does God Make Himself Known?


“A lot of his communication is through yourself through inner thought. Its just one of those things you have to feel inside.”

“Like if I’m having problems I can always go and pray, he will answer my problems.”

“Of course prayer.”

“Through prayer.”

“I guess if he’s all-inclusive, every experience, every sensation or imput or whatever, you might see or touch or feel, it might just be one of your communications and your action would be your output.”

“Probably mostly through people.”

“Through nature.”

“You could maybe communicate with it, but since it really can’t talk back to you, its like more of a one-sided conversation really.”

“I don’t feel communicated with at all.”

Does knowing God depend on you having an experience?

Is it just based on you having some high, or some out of body encounter? Is it just your own personal preference? Or is knowing God some feeling that you have to have? God communicates himself to you through creation. God spoke and he created the entire world, and everything in it out of nothing. Genesis 1:1 says, in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And all of God’s creation was perfect and pleasing to him. All of God’s creation show-cases God. So whether you were to go to the rocky mountains, or you were to go to the ocean, or you were to look at the intricacies of the systems that are apart of the human body. All of this has God’s thumb print on it.

God gave us His bible

Though we see God in all of his creation, we get to know God in a more specific manner through his Bible. God gave us his bible so that he could show us who he is, so that we could know his purpose for us, and how we can know him in a personal manner. Everything we need to know about God can be found in the Bible. For all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and instruction in righteousness.

Since we have seen who God is and how he communicates himself to us, it brings us to question number three, why did God make us?
