COULD I KNOW GOD IN A VACUUM?

A spiritual vacuum? Yes, can I know God in a vacuum?

How can I know about God?
Where can I hear His name spoken or read His teachings?
In this modern world, they are many ways we can know God. We have the radio, TV, books, magazines, friends, church, parents, teachers’ internet, tracts and the Bible itself. What if we lived in a world (a vacuum) where none of these exists? Could we still know God? Ok, now close your eyes and mentally take all of that away.
Place yourself alone in an empty field, in a vacuum.
The only sound is the clear song of the birds.
The only sight is green prairie grass and a blue sky lace with fleecy clouds.
Could you know God if that were all you had?
If all we had were the forests and garden full of beautiful trees and flowers, all kinds of animals and beast, could we still know God?
Would He hold you responsible for not knowing Him?
I think, yes. We (you and I) could still know God, without the media or other helps. Even those who have never heard of God know about Him.
The Scripture in Romans 1:19-20 says “Since what may be known about God is plain to them (made manifest in them), because God has made it plain (shown it) to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities (attributes)- His eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
There it is, simple and straight. I could still have known about God, without the media books, pastors, and all of that. How? The Bible says, what may be known of God is made plain (simple, easily understood, manifest, evident) to us, because God showed it us—so that we might know Him.
God’s invisible qualities are laid before our eyes. We can see His eternal power and divine nature evident in the things around us—the things He made. We see Him in everything—from the song of the birds, to the grass, the blooming of the flowers, the clouds, the rain, the sun, the night and day, we see the wisdom He put in man, the intelligence and intellectual ability to innovate, we see Him in the way which nature lines up after each other.
God has made Himself evident and clearly seen in the things He made.
So what excuse would you have for not knowing God?
Ok, now let’s place ourselves back in our everyday environment, with all that’s in it– radio, TVs, magazines, Tracts, internet, billboards, Pastors, Teachers, Parents, Friends, Church, books, newspapers and the Bible. We have all this things almost everyday of our lives, some of which are constant.
What excuse would we have for not knowing God?
We hear the gospel preached almost everywhere—the media, Church, tracts etc, we have our parents to guide, pastors to teach and shepherd and even on the internet.
What reason could you give for not knowing and believing in God?
To us who know and believe in Him how does He expect us to act on that knowledge?
Keep it to ourselves and do nothing about it?
God expects us to use the things we know and have learned about Him to help others to know Him too.

Some people have written what they know about God in books, tracts, and on the internet for others to read; some share it on radio, TV, in Church, on the street and others while traveling.
What are you as a believer doing with your knowledge of God and those God-given experiences?
You who do not know God (i.e. really know Him, personally as your Lord, your savior, father and friend), what excuse will you give Him, for not knowing Him?
Remember: “… so that men are without excuse.”

    Hmm…… This is an interesting post my thinking is many cultures worship God’s creations instead of the true creator. How can they believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how can they hear unless someone proclaims him? And who will go to tell them unless he is sent? Romans 10:14 comes to mind for me on this post. Don’t people in other cultures who have never heard the gospel of Jesus still need him and need the word?

    • Thank you for sharing that beautiful Scripture. Yes that is the very point of this post.
      People who have never heard the message of salvation preached to them have nature, and other things around them to show them that there is a God in heaven.

      This people, no matter how they try to put it cannot deny the existence of God. The very fact that they chose to worship other creatures is a sign that they know about the existence of God but have not yet come to terms with Him.

      With all the media helps and other resources we have at our disposal, we who have come to know God can use this things to reach out to those unreached. However we chose to do it, the point is we do not have excuse not to share the Gospel of Christ. Even if we are unable to go personally to those nations of the world, technology and social media has offered us different ways we can reach out effectively.

      Thank You Ma for taking time to stop by.

    This is a very eloquent post. The beauty of Nature, the creativity of human imagination, and other realities definitely point to how God is very merciful. I like how your article also talks about our responsibility to send the message of spirituality and belief in God to the world. Certainly, we’re on this Earth for a short period of time. Therefore, we have to use our time wisely and recognize how when we help another person out of a sincere justification and when we help someone build in their faith, then it truly pleases God.

    • Very true brother. We have to make the most of the time we have been given in this life to draw others to the love of God.
      Thank you very much.
