Part 1 – The Doorway of Proving what we hope for :The Faith of God!

Rom 10:17
True faith comes from God, therefore it is empowered by the Words of God as YOU speak them in confession before God. As we learned earlier the Evidence we see in creation about God is ONLY REVEALED through the Faith that God gives you at the New Birth, it contains within it the PROVING of the evidence you now do not see. 
Beneath the SEEN WORLD is an UNSEEN WORLD where the the physical realm’s evidences are proven by the spiritual realm to be real, all of science is the outward evidence of the spiritual truth that PROVES it true, no theory of Man that cannot be proven by its counterpart in God’s realm is true. FRAMED the worlds with spiritual substance from his mouth, so the universe is FIRST spiritual structure then physical manifestation. It is its spiritual structure that HOLDS it together, keeping it from flying apart!
Heb 11:1  
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:3  
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Heb 12:2“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Always remember that there are TWO kinds of faith, one faith is natural every day belief in what we do, sitting in a chair, walking down the street, natural faith is an assumption that what is will be, BUT God’s pure Faith goes one step further, his faith presents absolute proof OF WHAT HE ASKS YOU TO DO.
Real faith, present tense (Now) faith from God provides proof that the evidences we do see in the physical realm are real and will come forth as promised. God never says what his faith cannot produce therefore his promises in Christ are YES and Amen!
 Jas 2:26  
God’s faith just like natural faith REQUIRES an action to produce results, no matter how much faith we think we have, if we NEVER ACT UPON his instructions then no results will happen, like planting a garden, if you keep the seed in your pocket and never put it in the ground it cannot grow!
2Pe 1:5  
“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;..”
God requires us to know things, his faith in us is not a blind belief, mans religion is, but one of PURITY and KNOWLEDGE the proof manifest through our actions. We are a LIVING EPISTLE written in the heart, known and read by all men because we act like he acted while he was here, that’s what Christlike means. 
The Church has FAILED miserably before the world, we act like other men who copied other men instead of being HIS written word in our hearts, revealing the proof of God in the world!

1Jn 5:4“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. “

Rev 14:12  
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Gods Faith doesn’t work UNDER WAVERING, DOUBTFUL CONDITIONS, just think about this for a second, if you had kids that WAVERED and DOUBTED every thing you told them. Would your words mean anything to them? Would your presence matter to them? 
When you have confidence in someone’s word to you, you never doubt the outcome because you possess the proof internally, you trust emphatically that what they say is what will happen because you have experienced them personally. The longer you experience’s word and act upon it, the deeper the proof becomes, depth in God is revealed as your faith grows!

Psa 42:7  
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. “

Joh 1:1  
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:14“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
Because we are dealing with not just a part of God but with God himself being planted in our recreated Human spirit, Faith is more than a belief but the result of belief, the proof, the evidence of Hopes and dreams, the very thing that holds every ATOM in the universe together resides in your heart waiting for you to act upon what God says.
This does not seem to be dealing with Apologetic issues but I assure you that these teachings are the very foundation of every thing we believe. you do not understand what true faith is you cannot PROVE to yourself or anyone else that God is real if he’s not real to you first; that is just logical! The Atheist and the Agnostic are looking at a spiritual issue from the BACKWARD position, wanting proof that can ONLY come through personal experience, then turning around and refusing to act upon it to gain the proof. 
It is they who are trapped in a “God Box” never being able to leave the confusion of wanting proof of God and not able to act on it to get the proof they seek! It goes against everything in them to OBEY BEFORE RECEIVING THE PROOF but that is how God made FAITH to work, because in doing it that way it filters out the wavering and doubt our human condition is cursed with. SIMPLE OBEDIENCE to God, NOT A, NOT A MAN-MADE IDEA, BUT TO GOD ALONE releases the proof you seek, but you must first do the required action…..SALVATION!

The Bible: Circular Reasoning or Proof of God? problem with skeptics is NOT their natural skepticism which is good to have but the inconsistent and dishonest way in which they approach God and his word.

The statement “Christians can’t use circular reasoning by trying to prove the bible by quoting from the bible!”
This question which sounds reasonable to the masses who hate all things God, is lacking BOTH common sense and reasonableness  if you use proper logic! The Bible is a written record of what from the beginning until the future, it is God’s memory recorded in writing of the history of the earth. So to even think that its not O.K. to use it to prove the proposition that God exists is at best avoidance of PROOF.
It is like saying you cannot prove that the president lives in the White House by looking inside the White House to provide the necessary proof! you cannot fix your Car by looking at what’s wrong under the hood BY LOOKING AT THE BOOK of how to fix your car to find evidence of the problem!

Is it wrong to read the Origin of Species to gain insight into Darwin’s mind or is that also circular Reasoning? 
The fallacy of petitio principii, or “begging the question”, is committed “when a proposition which requires proof is assumed without proof.    More specifically, petitio principii refers to arguing for a conclusion that has already been assumed in the premise, in effect “begging” any listener to “question” the basis of the logic.
Using the Bible to prove it true is a totally different thing because the Bible contains all the evidence needed to prove the proposition true, all that is needed is the FAITH of God to activate the mind to reason it out of the Bible. on the other hand has many problems and issues that make this a problem, assumption is the Name of the Game with Evolution. Please IF you are a serious skeptic then please read the following Articles that PROVE evolution isn’t true!

Evolution is Missing a Mathematical Formula!

Darwinian Evolution is Missing a Way to Add Genes!
Helpless Babies Contradict ‘Survival of the Fittest’ fulfilled prophecies, the Amazing Consistency, and the many Scientific Statements of the Bible PROVE it to be the Word of God and thereby a book to gain witness of the facts about God and Creation.
 Evolution lives on NEW discoveries (Constantly moving the Ages of everything around like chess pieces on a chaotic board. Evolution has yet to deal with the Facts at hand which contradict it, while the Bible simply STATES the facts as is and science proves them true as they find out about them.

Scientific Facts in the Bible from the Evidence Bible Facts in the Bible: 100 Reasons to Believe the Bible is Supernatural in Origin (Hidden Wealth Series) Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of invisible atoms. Here, Scripture tells us that the “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
2. Medical science has only recently discovered that blood-clotting in a newborn reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. The Bible consistently says that a baby must be circumcised on the eighth day. 
3. At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space: “He…hangs the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7).
4. The prophet Isaiah also tells us that the earth is round: “It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22). This is not a reference to a flat disk, as some skeptics, but to a sphere. Secular man discovered this 2,400 years later. At a time when science and FALSE  believed that the earth was flat, is was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world (see Proverbs 3:6 footnote). 
5. God told Job in 1500 B.C.: “Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?” (Job 38:35). The Bible here is making what appears to be a scientifically ludicrous statement—that light can be sent, and then manifest itself in speech. But did you know that radio waves travel at the speed of light? 
This is why you can have instantaneous wireless communication with someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn’t discover this until 1864 when “British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing” (Modern Century Illustrated Encyclopedia).
6. Job 38:19 asks, “Where is the way where light dwells?” Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a “way,” traveling at 186,000 miles per second. Science has discovered that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: “When the morning stars sang together…”
8. “Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth” (Time, Dec. 1976). 
9. Solomon described a “cycle” of air currents two thousand years before scientists “discovered” them. “The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits” (Ecclesiastes 1:6). 
10. Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: “In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters.” The first thing God tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the universe. 
11. The great biological truth concerning the importance of blood in our body’s mechanism has fully comprehended only in recent years. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were “bled,” and many died because of the practice. If you lose your blood, you lose your life. Yet Leviticus 17:11, written 3,000 years ago, declared that blood is the source of life: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood.” 
12. All things were made by Him (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. Why then did the dinosaur disappear? The answer may be in Job 40:15–24. In this passage, God speaks about a great creature called “behemoth.” Some commentators think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig. Following are the characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its hips and a tail like a large tree.
It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but Scripture says, “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.” In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct. Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as 30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. 
This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before examinations, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. 
Look at the specific instructions God gave His people for when they encounter disease: “And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself even days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean” (Leviticus 15:13). 
Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash hands under “running water.” 
14. Luke 17:34–36 says the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will occur while some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night at the same time. “During the devastating Black Death of the fourteenth century, patients who were sick or dead were kept in the same rooms as the rest of the family. People often wondered why the disease was affecting so many people at one time. They attributed these epidemics to ‘bad air’ or ‘evil spirits.’ However, careful attention to the medical commands of God as revealed in Leviticus would have saved untold millions of lives. 
Arturo Castiglione wrote about the overwhelming importance of this biblical medical law: ‘The laws against leprosyin Leviticus 13 may be regarded as the first model of sanitary legislation’ (A History of Medicine).” 
Grant R. Jeffery, The Signature of God 

“With all these truths revealed in Scripture, how could a thinking person deny that the Bible is supernatural in origin?”

There is no other book in any of the world’s religions (Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Koran, Book of Mormon, etc.) that contains scientific truth. In fact, they contain statements that are clearly unscientific. Hanegraaff said,

“Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence.” (Hebrews 11:1 )

The Bible is ANYTHING but circular reasoning, it is a witness to great things proven within its supernatural pages. 

The Bible: Proofs of its Supernatural Origin!

To deny this is to close one’s mind to facts that bother your theory of beginnings.

Part 2 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God! we learned previously, The Bible cannot be learned from, with “The Mind of the Flesh”mindset; meaning that the Natural Mind is blinded to anything spiritual…..period! The natural human mind cannot imagine the half of what God HAS DONE let alone what he will do BY FAITH!
The words of God are of spiritual nature so it is totally understandable and Logical that it must then be spiritually understood, opened within the spirit man to reveal its proof within you once you have obeyed God. 
This is what the Bible calls “The Renewing of the Mind” our thinking so that what God says makes perfect sense to our human mind, the problem is we have become religious rather than smart in our thinking!
 Romans 12
 1I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
The total transformation of the mind through the Word of God, and remember the Words of God are the containers of proof, of, of answers to our deepest questions. Once we renew our thinking and restructure our mind to think as God himself would think then the Will of God becomes second nature to us!
Man’s religion, his attempt to reach God aside from God’s provisions for Salvation and his CLEAR commands, are mind/flesh agreements that DISAGREE with God’s clear Commands. (Idol Worship is a clear case, praying to saints, confessing to men sin, ALL CLEAR DISOBEDIENCE TO SCRIPTURE
Religion is wearing a Fig Leaf to cover sin instead of allowing God to put the Blood of Christ there. People who are deceived by religion are as blinded by darkness as skeptics who don’t know the Lord at all and cannot see the truth before them, the only difference is that Religion has access to the truth in their laps or their coffee tables daily and Skeptics don’t. 

1. The mental act, condition, or habit of placing trust or confidence in another: My belief in you is as strong as ever.
2. Mental acceptance of and conviction in the truth, actuality, or validity of something: His explanation of what happened defies belief.
3. Something believed or accepted as true, especially a particular tenet or a body of tenets accepted by a group of persons.
This equally applies to science as it does religion, there’s no way around this. Scientists BELIEVE certain things based SOMETIMES on good scientific evidence and other times not so much, so for Atheist’s to say they are not a religion, a belief system is at best a denial of the obvious. 
I know they are not a religion LIKE a denomination but in basic terms ALL men worship something, god or God or Humanism or science as a concept to explain who we are, why are we here and where are we going? 
That is where the similarities end through, because without proof there is NO God, Atheists have no firm base on which to stand the ALL NATURAL explanation of origins (Evolution) is naked of proof, only circumstantial evidence!
As I have said TRUE BIBLICAL FAITH according to Hebrews 11:1 is the real base on which all Christian evidence rests BUT it must be understood FIRST of all that the requirement of God is to receive HIS FAITH FIRST then all the evidence’s PROOF’S are revealed to the Mind!   

Hebrews 10:34 (Amplified Bible)

For you did sympathize and suffer along with those who were imprisoned, and you bore cheerfully the plundering of your belongings and the confiscation of your property, in the knowledge and consciousness that you yourselves had a better and lasting possession.” produces true Knowledge by stirring our Consciousness with “doubtless” confidence in God’s ability to fulfill what he has said to us, that goes for evidence for whatever we are desiring to get from him!

True Biblical Faith is the heaven sent SUBSTANCE of what we desire, physically or Mentally need to know or have. Faith given by God CONTAINS within its seed every thing needed to BRING that desire into OUR REALITY.

Just as in Science, you MUST STOP doing everything that will taint your results, your heart must be like a “Clean Room” in a Lab, pure from any desire that is Hypocritical to what you want to happen. If you desire Healing it would be a conflict of Interest to keep claiming your sick. Don’t deny the truth, but rather reinforce your true desire with scriptural backing, thus creating the end result as God framed the worlds.

A scientist doesn’t REHEARSE a wrong idea when he knows it won’t get the result wanted, he changes what he’s doing to match the wanted results, in the same way we must change what doesn’t work (Our Confessions to others and ourselves) and start confessing what God says about us, that’s how FAITH serves God’s purposes in our life. we excel in our desires we are experiencing prosperity from God and that is HIS PERFECT WILL FOR US! 

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Bible)

“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Did you see that, “whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists“, that is clearly proof of what I’ve been saying about the proper way to get your proof. First him by Faith then the proof that he exists follows, its not a blind faith without proof.

“Without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him.” God loves a FAITH following believer, and will ALWAYS answer their prayers of heart felt desire. Faith gets God’s attention immediately and HIGHLIGHTS YOUR NEEDS AND DESIRES.

Psalm 35:27 (Amplified Bible)

“Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

Mark 11:23-24 (Amplified Bible)

“Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].

This is an exciting verse, or it should be for the skeptic, who is willing top follow the RULE laid down by God in his word, its a chance to PROVE once and for all if God is real or imaginary, but you must first follow what he’s told you to do. This isn’t hard, but the skeptical mind cannot be in obedience to what it rejects from the outset. your in revolt to God in ANY WAY, faith CANNOT WORK, if you are not in total obedience to his requirements YOU HAVE SPOILED THE EXPERIMENT and have no right to criticize God from a scientific standpoint. A scientific mindset would never do what MOST skeptics do normally, rebel against the results because you don’t want to believe the alternative idea.
A true Scientist goes into an investigation UNBIASED trying to find Evidence of ether side of the argument NOT going into it with doubts of one side and belief of the other side strong, HOW could any result but the one expected ever happen? If you are like that your not serious about the results and are the biblical definition of a HYPOCRITE!

Part 1 – The Doorway to Proof Opened – Your Move!

I have heard countless Atheist’s, Agnostic’s and Skeptic’s state that IF I could show them PROOF that God existed (Which is funny if you think about it, since FEW of them believe in an ABSOLUTE TRUTH in any way), ARE THEY HEDGING THEIR BET’S? 

They have valid issues they bring to the table BUT SO DO WE, so why is it that our issues with the “Natural” evolutionary model of all things are NEVER ANSWERED, but only double talked away as insignificant?

Well there is absolute proof of God available to them BUT they refuse to accept the WAY in which that Evidential Proof is received. That limits the reception of the proof because they have succeeded in muddying the water in regards to spiritual evidence. 
Sort of like if a scientist (And keep in mind I’m using a physical example to show a spiritual issue.) were to deny that a physical tree grows in the forest from a seed because he’s NEVER SEEN A SEED in nature, so it must not exist and by virtue the tree could not come from such a small seed. know this is a great stretch but the point is that there can be no agreement on ether side until science can see for itself the evidence, so the issue I bring into the debate here is valid to science. If the proof is hidden with the evidence presented and can be seen ONLY ONE WAY then it is the job of those who SAY they want the proof to get it the way its supposed to be viewed and stop all the slight of hand and dishonest intellectual word play to avoid doing what must be done to receive! 

As I teach this lesson which God himself instilled in me by Revelation, it is my prayer and hope through Faith that every skeptic can pull a personal revelation in the natural to finally do what must be done to witness what they seem to seek!

THE DOORWAY OF PROOF: Its as close as your Heart!

Hebrews 11:3

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

 So as you can see from this verse, the NATURAL WORLD was not made from the elements which we see, feel and smell around us but from a SUPERNATURAL source called FAITH, CONSISTING OF THE VERY WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE!

The key to studying scripture is NEVER to use it or look at from the MIND OF THE FLESH!
God never intended his word that was created from faith to be used from a fleshly standpoint ONLY from the recreated Human HEART (The Spirit of Man Born Again) to look from human emotion is surface knowledge and it extremely dangerous to your eternal destiny. 
The Word of God is a powder Keg of eternal explosives, once released it has the power to create world’s and renew lives BUT at the same time if MISUSED OR MISAPPLIED just like ‘sweating dynamite” it can do much damage to your life as well, Christian or Unsaved.
Original intent plays big in how the word of God reveals truth and if you “superimpose” your false intent or even denominational slant upon God’s, the danger is real for judgment because God will not stand for being misspoken of forever. This is what’s meant by “Laying up in store for Judgment to come.”

Let’s look at a passage of scripture from the Amplified Bible to see just how misunderstood it has been:

John 10:1-42 (Amplified Bible)

John 10

 1I ASSURE you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber.

What is this DOOR? The doorway into the sheepfold is Jesus in wider sense but the Word of God in the lesser sense because the Bible says Jesus is the Word of God in flesh. 
So we can clearly teach from this that ANYONE saved or unsaved that tries to enter into the knowledge of God or the power of God anyway but through The Word of God is a thief and a Robber. 
Because if you are to understand God it must be by HIS testimony of himself not our “superimposed idea” of him through false experiences and comparisons made by men! This how Israel fell flat on her face whenever she backslid from God’s picture of himself through his Laws and presence and looked instead at nations of the world’s picture through false gods. your internalized picture of God is based in any way on your experiences in the flesh, your perspective is through a dirty glass instead of in the perfect mirror of His word.

    2But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
  3The watchman opens the door for this man, and the sheep listen to his voice and heed it; and he calls his own sheep by name and brings (leads) them out.
Now let’s see how its supposed to work, THE WORD of God, Jesus; enters through the DOORWAY of FAITH and becomes our SHEPHERD (Jesus: The Word ) and the WATCHMEN This I believe is our spirit-man within being guided by the Holy Spirit to OPEN THE DOORWAY OF BELIEF bursting forth the PROOF of what’s just happened with our hearts.

As we learn to listen to the voice of his word and DO IT, then he begins to CALL OUT of us that internalized PROOF into the for them to see. We must first act upon what the word says THEN our belief becomes FACT BASED because its been grow from the seed it was encased in just as a natural Tree grows, for some its faster and for others it takes longer but rest assured it WILL GROW!
    4When he has brought his own sheep outside, he walks on before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.
    5They will never [on any account] follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not know the voice of strangers or recognize their call.
Once the revelation of pure truth begins to grow to maturity then Jesus draws us out-side of self and shows forth his glory to the Jesus himself WALKS through us, in us, leading before us into deeper and deeper depths of truth. This is as it should be but because of natural interference’s such as “The World, The Flesh and the Devil” the process is most often slower to take UNLESS WE RESIST STEADFASTLY IN THE FAITH!
    6Jesus used this parable (illustration) with them, but they did not understand what He was talking about.
Why didn’t they understand this seemingly simple parable? Because their hearts were not RENEWED, or RECONFIGURED by the New Birth to understand what was under the surface of his word, this is the same problem Religion faces, being man-made it misses the mark of God’s perfection.
    7So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door [a]for the sheep.    8All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not listen to and obey them.
  9I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.
All others who try to enter Salvation some other way than by Jesus are stealing from you the ONLY doorway into divine revelation of the real PROOF, the ultimate proof of the Living God which is HIS CHANGE OF YOU!

    10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [b]overflows).
11I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His [own] life for the sheep.(A)
    12But the hired servant (he who merely serves for wages) who is neither the nor the owner of the sheep, when he sees the wolf coming, deserts the flock and runs away. And the wolf chases and snatches them and scatters [the flock].
     13Now the hireling flees because he merely serves for wages and is not himself concerned about the sheep [cares nothing for them].
    14I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me–
    15Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father–and I am giving My [very own] life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep.
    16And I have other sheep [beside these] that are not of this fold. I must bring and [c]impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be [they will become] one flock under one Shepherd.(B)
    17For this [reason] the Father loves Me, because I lay down My [own] life–to take it back again.
  18No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down [I put it from Myself.] I am authorized and have power to lay it down (to resign it) and I am authorized and have power to take it back again. These are the instructions (orders) which I have received [as My charge] from My Father.
 This is why there is ONLY one way into salvation, because NO ONE ELSE has the Authority of God but Jesus, NO MAN ON EARTH could or even would follow God’s instruction’s as Jesus has! ALL other religions carry no God given Authority to be shepherds of God’s flock, all doctrine MUST PASS the one doorway TEST in order to be labeled pure before God! 
This entire chapter teaches us that there is ONLY ONE WAY to get the evidence all over creation to be revealed as the PROOF it is! FAITH CONTAINS the proof of God, without faith you cannot please God NOR can you understand him…..PERIOD!   19Then a fresh division of opinion arose among the Jews because of His saying these things.
    20And many of them said, He has a demon and He is mad (insane–He raves, He rambles). Why do you listen to Him?

    21Others argued, These are not the thoughts and the language of one possessed. Can a demon-possessed person open blind eyes?
Do you see a pattern here concerning the debate about God and creation! 
What was the first thing the Jews did after Jesus CLEARLY EXPLAINED himself and his DOCTRINE to them? 
Did they accept him as he stated to do?
Did they get the point, the simple point?, they did what the world today does concerning God and creation, because they had another WAY to salvation (They thought!) and any new idea was foreign to them!
Instead of doing as instructed which would have been easier, they INSULTED HIM, and said his DOCTRINE was inspired from Devils. Sound Familiar? 
Whenever Atheist’s can’t answer the questions posed or the Ideas presented to them CLEARLY they simply resort to insults and demeaning the Bible, do you see the pattern? This will always happen when we try to raise our knowledge above God’s perfect knowledge.  
22After this the Feast of Dedication [of the reconsecration of the temple] was taking place at Jerusalem. It was winter,
    23And Jesus was walking in Solomon’s Porch in the temple area.
    24So the Jews surrounded Him and began asking Him, How long are You going to keep us in and suspense? If You are really the Christ (the Messiah), tell us so plainly and openly.
    25Jesus answered them, I have told you so, yet you do not believe Me [you do not trust Me and rely on Me]. The very works that I do by the power of My Father and in My Father’s name bear witness concerning Me [they are My credentials and evidence in support of Me].
    26But you do not believe and trust and rely on Me because you do not belong to My fold [you are no sheep of Mine].
    27The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
    28And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.
    29My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father’s hand.
    30I and the Father are One.
    31Again the Jews [d]brought up stones to stone Him.  32Jesus said to them, My Father has enabled Me to do many good deeds. [I have shown many acts of mercy in your presence.] For which of these do you mean to stone Me?
    33The Jews replied, We are not going to stone You for a good act, but for blasphemy, because You, a mere [e]Man, make Yourself [out to be] God.
    34Jesus answered, Is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods?(C)
    35So men are called gods [by the Law], men to whom God’s message came–and the Scripture cannot be set aside or cancelled or broken or annulled–
    36[If that is true] do you say of the One Whom the Father consecrated and dedicated and set apart for Himself and sent into the world, You are blaspheming, because I said, I am the Son of God?
    37If I am not doing the works [performing the deeds] of My Father, then do not believe Me [do not adhere to Me and trust Me and rely on Me].
    38But if I do them, even though you do not believe Me or have faith in Me, [at least] believe the works and have faith in what I, in order that you may know and understand [clearly] that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father [One with Him].
    39They sought again to arrest Him, but He escaped from their hands.
    40He went back again across the Jordan to the locality where John was when he first baptized, and there He remained.
    41And many came to Him, and they kept saying, John did not perform a [single] sign or miracle, but everything John said about this Man was true.
    42And many [people] there became believers in Him. [They adhered to and trusted in and relied on Him.]
These verses clearly tell us that unbelief in what God says produces an unreceptive heart, there is no way to know about the creator until the acceptance of his Word.
The Father God and his Son are BOTH one WORD given to us to himself to us, all the proof and the evidence are contained in the very same FAITH he gives to do the Job he requires. 
The Works that Jesus did contained all the evidence and proof the Jews needed to believe in their Messiah but they were unable to understand the very scriptures they worshiped because they were stuck on the surface level its statements. The Word of God is hidden on purpose from those who cannot understand the depth beneath it.
Simple, would you give dynamite to a 1 year old to play with or to a experienced bomb maker who knows what he has? 

It takes a lot to be worthy of knowing him doesn’t it? Well……not really, it only takes simple obedience to the instructions given. It takes changing our perspective just a little and allowing God the of our doubt, doing the simple act of receiving his FAITH and the rest will take care of itself!

As this lesson continues you will be amazed as to just how simple the problem of proof of God and creation is, BUT I hold no illusions about winning any argument with the Skeptics here, this simply my response to their QUESTION of “If there is a God, PROVE it to me!” If they STILL do not wish to see it, then so be it, I’ve done my part to admonish and to warn!


Part 4 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

Yes, of course they do…..It’s just that they don’t call it “faith” they can’t bring themselves to admit that they have the same natural faith as religiousness does. 
It’s called something else, like “testing” or “probability” or “reliability” all word games and slight of hand, yet it is the exact same thing as false Religious faith. Until God’s Kind of Faith reaches down and touches our natural human propensity for belief, NOTHING CAN CHANGE!

Yet faith underlies all phenomenon that can be measured by a scientific instrument, otherwise how do you explain the “trust, allegiance to duty,  firm belief in something, complete trust something that is believed especially with strong conviction” in science that scientist’s show. 
THIS IS A NATURAL FAITH IN SCIENCE! is or was a mind WE CALL GOD that believed in everything a scientist can measure. But their faith will not allow them PAST A CERTAIN POINT of belief, that’s why a Scientist who is a true Christian can go farther and connect with God’s Faith. The scientist must be part of that belief structure or he will not be able to experience what the bible reveals.
“The statement ‘there is no God’ is quite different from the claim that there can’t be a god. The latter makes a claim regarding possibility; the former is an actuality or existential claim. 
I doubt that there are many theologians or Christian apologists who would claim that all their faith amounts to is a belief in the possibility of this or that. One can believe there is no God because there can’t be a god, but one might also disbelieve in God while admitting the possibility of the Judeo-Christian or any other god.
Disbelief in God is analogous to disbelief in Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny., those who believe in Bigfoot and Nessie, for example, aren’t known for claiming they believe out of faith. To say you have faith in Bigfoot or faith in Nessie sounds ludicrous. 
Believers in Bigfoot think there is good evidence for their belief. Disbelievers argue that the evidence is not strong at all and does not deserve assent to the proposition that Bigfoot exists. Disbelievers in Bigfoot do not disbelieve as an act of faith; they disbelieve because the evidence is not persuasive. 
Belief in God, on the other hand, could be either an act of faith or a belief based on conclusions from evidence and argument. If the theistic belief is an act of faith then the one holding the belief either thinks the evidence against belief outweighs or equals the evidence for belief, or the belief is held without regard for evidence at all. Otherwise, the belief is not an act of faith but of belief that the evidence is stronger for belief than against.
 The above argument is interesting but unrelated at the same time simply because he assumes to much and thus over-inflates his point! Believer’s in anything have NATURAL FAITH, its the simple bottom-line he misses in his extended boring explanations. The evidence spoken of here is circumstantial at best but that doesn’t prove they don’t hold faith in that little evidence.
 A whole lot of double talk later his point is lost in a mess of words like “Faith, Belief, Evidence” my point is clear here, Natural Faith is Natural Faith whether or not a big-footer or a Scientist holds it, its a simple matter of what your Faith is in not how you Redefine what human faith is!
…science has its own faith-based belief system. All science proceeds on the assumption that nature is ordered in a rational and intelligible way. You couldn’t be a scientist if you thought the universe was a meaningless jumble of odds and ends haphazardly juxtaposed. When physicists probe to a deeper level of subatomic structure, or astronomers extend the reach of their instruments, they expect to encounter additional elegant mathematical order. And so far this faith has been justified. (“Taking Science on Faith,” New York Times, Nov. 24, 2007)

“The claim that the assumptions of science are of the same kind as the belief in the Trinity, the Virgin birth, or the existence of God is as wrong as Dr. Spencer’s belief that the claim that ‘everything evolved from natural processes’ is an act of faith.” 
I’m not sure why he cannot clearly see that what he is denying is really there but it must be a cloud of thick demonic blindness. He has worded himself into a corner so many times already I’m amazed he doesn’t have claustrophobia. All kidding aside, this is so silly an argument its painful to listen to if you have the least bit of knowledge about God and Faith. But that is the kind of dishonest coverage true Faith gets from dishonest science.

“Dr. Spencer’s belief that the claim that ‘everything evolved from natural processes'”

Everything evolving from the natural is a common belief in Science but it would take much more faith than any religion could muster, natural processes CANNOT be shown in the problem of D.N.A. 
How could the information in D.N.A. required for life, ever evolve over Millions of years if ALL the information is needed from the beginning in order for life to exist?
This is an impossible question to answer as science stands today, there’s nothing to explain this missing link in common sense among scientist’s except FAITH to believe the impossible without evidence to prove their position.
“If the only alternatives are that everything evolved from either supernatural or natural forces, and one is unconvinced by the arguments and evidence presented by those who believe in supernatural forces, then logically the only reasonable belief is that everything evolved from natural forces. Only if the evidence supporting a supernatural being were superior or equal to the evidence and arguments against such a belief, would belief that everything evolved from natural forces be a matter of faith.”
My answer to this is “It is superior and it is a matter of faith on both fronts except my Faith belongs to God”, the evidence is mounting daily against the natural beginning of anything, creation is shinning brightly with the real answer and science is taking notice slowly but surely! If you could pull apart the double helix, you would see the exposed ends of four different chemicals waving in the air. Those four chemicals, called bases carry the information used to make a body and to keep it running.

Scientists named each of the four bases with a letter, G, A, T or C. All of the letters in one cell make up the human genome, a complete set of instructions for making a person, but how could our D.N.A. evolve a little at a time? It had to be intact completely or human life could not exist, so how did D.N.A.’S information evolve from soup to ape to human?

“Thus, our disbelief in a supernatural creator is not an act of faith, and therefore, not non-rational as are those of theists and Christian apologists. However, if Christian apologists insist on claiming that science is faith-based or that their version of Christianity and the rejections of their views are equally acts of faith, I will insist that the apologists have a non-rational faith, while their opponents have a rational faith. Though I think it would be less dishonest and less misleading to admit that atheists and naturalists do not base their beliefs on faith in any sense close to that of religious faith.
Wow, this guy is a “double talk freak” first he isn’t then he is now he isn’t kind of guy, he said all that stuff just to say what they always say, “we don’t have faith you do” hogwash at its best!
