Why I believe GOD is real

GOD s real Why I believe GOD exists and is involved in our lives and in control of Nations, Governments and worldwide events.God and the nation of Israel: 

Today, the year 2008, and for some time now; one thing is present that beyond any reasonable doubt should prove that GOD is real. If you can’t bring yourself to admitting that GOD exists, for sure you will not be able to deny that what GOD has spoken shall come to be. The one thing above all other things that prove the existence of GOD is the nation of Israel. Israel celebrated their 60th anniversary this year. In 1948 Israel became a nation again after wandering without a homeland for approximately 1,960 years. Prior to these 1,960 years, for approximately 140 years they were captive in their home land and many of them carried away to the homeland of their captors under the Babylonian Empire and then roughly 200 years under the Persian Empire after Media and Persia conquered Babylon. During the wars between the Persian Empire and Greece Israel was under Greece control for 50 years after which time they were annexed to Egypt for approximately 120 years. After Egyptian rule they were under Syrian rule for about 30 years. All this activity takes place between 721 B.C. and 187 B.C. This captivity and wandering without a homeland or statehood is about 2,587 years and includes the years under Roman rule and afterwards until 1948. Now our Nation is just under 240 years old and yet it seems like we have been around forever, so 2,587 years is certainly a very long time. So, how long did Israel rule as a nation. From about one year after the Exodus out of Egypt until the captivity by Babylon  is 769 years. These years would include the 40 years wandering in the wilderness with Moses and the many years of warring with the various tribes and nations as they establish their kingdom.

All figures and times used are approximations and may not completely be in agreement with historical data or time frames used by others. But, then, this is not a history lesson based on precise research but rather my emphasis on the fact that what GOD has spoken shall come to pass, we will see as we continue where many events “came to be” hundreds of years after they were spoken of and sometimes thousands of years. None-the-less, my figures and times are fairly accurate and supported by biblical studies.

 Now; we know that present day Israel became a nation in 1948; but Israel of old, were they a nation for 769 years?  Or did their status as a nation start with Saul, David, or Solomon, or possibly after their initial battles for the land of Canaan? Consider this, our nation is 237 years old, but that age will date us back to 1776. Was America born with the Declaration of Independence in 1776 or did we become a nation in 1607 with the establishment of Jamestown. How about 1492 with Columbus? This is just one of many elements used by GOD throughout the ages to ensure that in the end: “No man knoweth the hour”. The ungodly also use those things established by GOD; to deceive, turn truth into lies and steer as many as will listen, in the wrong direction. Consider this; for a couple of hundred years Egypt and many others from various modern nations have been unable to establish the reality of evidence to the Exodus. In the last few years we have learned that they were looking for evidence of the Exodus in and bout 1270 B.C. I believe the Exodus took place about 1490 B.C. Later in this writing we will see that the 400 years in Egypt and the Exodus was spoken of by the Word of GOD close to 1,500 years prior.

Again, my emphasis throughout this writing is two-fold, 1st– what GOD has spoken will come to pass, consider it done; and 2nd– that GOD is involved in our daily lives and in control of nations, kings and world events.

The event in present age 1948 that gave the Jews a homeland and established a nation that today we know as Israel was a political event that involved various nations, the U.N. and was years in the making. Political event was probably not what the Jews had prayed for nor what they expected as spoken of by the Prophets. Certainly their modern day spiritual leaders who were well versed in the Law of Moses and the words of the Prophets had prayed for and looked to Heaven for their GOD to come down and destroy the enemy and give them the victory.
