God is the Great Lawgiver!

The existence of law demands a lawgiver and that lawgiver is God: "God alone, who made the law, can rightly judge among us. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to condemn your neighbor?" (James 4:12 NLT).

We see many laws in action every day, from the physical side of gravity, heat, light, energy, friction, physics, chemistry, etc., to the spiritual side of the ten commandments.

God is the Great Creator!

The existence of the creation demands a creator and that creator is God: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. {2} The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. {3} Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. {4} And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. {5} God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day" (Gen 1:1-5).

God is the Great Life Giver!

The existence of life demands a life giver and that life giver is God: "Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so. {25} And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. {26} Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." {27} So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Gen 1:24-27).

God is the Great Life Sustainer!

For life to continue and to be sustained requires a life sustainer and that life sustainer is God: "Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so" (Genesis 1:24). Letís continue in verse 28: "Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth"" (Genesis 1:28).

God says that the living creatures would bring forth "according to their kind." Cows produce cows and horses produce horses. To man, God says "be fruitful and multiply." Reproduction of life is a gift from God. God is the great life-sustainer

God is the Great Designer!

On the earth in which we live, we see the hand of a great architect and designer, and that designer is God. We see similarity and harmony in design from the atom to the universe. This universe did not just happen, it was designed and then created by God Almighty to show His power and glory: "The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork" (Psalms 19:1).

God Fulfills Prophecy!

Approximately one third of your Bible is prophecy and most of that prophecy is for the end time. The Prophet Isaiah says: "Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, {10} Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, 'My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,' {11} .... Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it" (Isaiah 46:9-11).

The Prophet Ezekiel delivered a prophecy against Tyre: ""Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and will cause many nations to come up against you, as the sea causes its waves to come up" (Ezekiel 26:3). The ancient city of Tyre was destroyed and this prophecy was fulfilled.

God Answers Prayer!

Real answered prayer is a divine intervention answered from Almighty God. We must have faith and our prayers must be fervent in order to have our prayers answered: "And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. {16} Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" (James 5:15-16).

We also need humility for answered prayer: ""If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14).

If you have had answered prayer you will know it.

In Conclusion: These seven irrefutable proofs prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Great Almighty God exists!
