Definitive proof there is a God
The book of Ezekiel makes an amazing claim. It repeats 76 times that you will know that there is a God and specifically the God Ezekiel knows. Well, this is quite outstanding and THE book to read. Some say it is faith, but Ezekiel makes it quite clear that he knows God and you will know as well.
Ezekiel writes God will inflict punishment Himself on Jerusalem because they have worshipped idols. It will be so bad that it has never happened before and will never happen again. The disaster will be so bad fathers will eat their children and children will eat their fathers. He will scatter the Jews. A third of the people will die of a plague or perish by famine. A third will fall by sword. The other third will be scattered to the winds and followed by the sword. (ed note: We know that stuff like this has happened. World War II only should be enough evidence - Biblical prophecy fail again).
This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Disaster! An unheard-of disaster is coming. The end has come! The end has come! It has roused itself against you. It has come! Doom has come upon you—you who dwell in the land. The time has come, the day is near; there is panic, not joy, upon the mountains. I am about to pour out my wrath on you and spend my anger against you; I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will repay you in accordance with your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that it is I the LORD who strikes the blow.
To summarize all the things God will do so that you, dear reader, will KNOW THAT HE IS GOD are these things:
Why does he have to use a third hand medium to punish? Why not come down himself? Why does he use another nation to punish Israel? (Then later he punishes the other nation for thinking they were above Israel)
Doesn't that sh*t happen all the time anywat? I should write a Bible book and predict such things. Boy, this prophesizing is far easier than it looks.
Anyway, science has dismissed these. We know why disease happens, micro-organisms and can get a vaccine or anti-biotic to destroy them. So, is that nullifying God's intended punishment? We understand our earth is not entire stable and how the tectonic plates shifting causes earthquakes. We know the fault lines and generally where earthquakes are likely to happen. Does God move people to these areas when he gets ready to punish them? The lightning rod controls the bolts from destroying a building and channels the energy into the ground. Could God have foreseen that? He must have been quite frustrated when Ben Franklin and Václav Prokop Diviš discovered it. We know war happens because men are religious. We know famine occurs because of poor agriculture, disorganized governments, poverty and war. We know that winds are caused by the Sun heating the earth and the hot air rising from the land. A hailstone is a product of the updrafts and down drafts that develop inside the cumulonimbus clouds of a thunderstorm, where supercooled water droplets exist. Maybe the definite proof is the wild beast eating children. This truly is a God of Love.
