How Did God Reveal Himself to You?

When did you accept in your heart (and mind) that your idea of God exists?

When did you realise what his characteristics are, and how did you know?

I'm just curious.  Thanks for reading.

At the back of my mind i had always known that God Almighty exists. But i had a very personal encounter with him when i was in jss 3 class. It was beautiful, there was nothing i asked for that i did not get mysteriously. The highest one that happen was when i was in the university, i needed 10,000 naira for something real important by the next morning. i didn't have it, i had no one in mind who could have given me the cash at short notice so i simply asked God for if. First thing the next morning , i was called from home and told that my aunt from America had sent me 10,000naira. I didn't beg her for it and i never mentioned my problems to her. I have so many other Miracles that God has done in my Life since i encountered him.His marvelous.

@Exu:

The Bible is a compilation of truths from different authors. Style of writing and aim may differ. Reason why u can't pick words/quotes out of context just to suit Ur argument.

Have u not read books where u get something like...

Page 15 line 2:  .....He went into the room and met Adam dead.......

U get to another page

Page 19 line 6 ......the doctor found out he was just comatose. Adam didn't die afterall

Would i be right to just pick out "Adam dead" and "Adam didn't die" ?

The Bible is a book for heaven sake and not some keypoints or nuggets. You can't read out of context.

I apologise if I've put you in an akward position Seun...

As for you Miss Vexxy...how can you possibly say that either of those statements has been 'taken out of context' (isn't that what dishonest politicians say when they've been exposed?)...

There is a lot of ambiguity within the Bible, but those are two of the clearer verses...

Exu, read my post again, please. I did not make any claims about the bible except that it has some apparent contradictions, which is a fact known by every student of the bible. I was not trying to insult anyone's faith at all; I'm just trying to invite people to look at the issue from another angle, if they so desire.

What are the versus that come before and after those in which you quote?  In what context does it fit?  Who exactly was in this conversation under what pretense?  It's easy for one to take them out of context to fit the need of an argument.

Here's one of many (and I mean, many) contradictions in the Bible...

ISA 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

DEU 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

Like Seun said the Bible was written by people who were either powerful or looking to curry favour from those in power...There was very little, if any, difference between politics and religion in ancient civilizations: those in positions of authority claimed to receive their power directly from 'God' as opposed to the people...

The documented evidence of the bible dates back thousands of years, during which it may have been corrupted by scholars, religous leaders, etc. It is well established that ancient cultures in bible times often modified the truth to suit the desires or beliefs of the people in power. And I am sure you are aware of the contradictions in the bible.

So why can't we collect new documented evidence from contemporary life? Why does faith we have to rely on documents that may have been fabricated or adulterated over thousands of years? Why cant those things that supposedly happened thousands of years ago happen again so our scientists can record them and update science?

Please could you clarify this statement...

Are you saying that God is innate in us?

Or, are you saying the need to 'believe' is innate?

Thanks.

Why stop me for believin' the existence of GOD through the Bible (documented evidence).

Whichever way u see it. Man cannot not believe. Its innate in us. What u believe is a different topic.

U cannot proof an unseen reality. And truth is not all realities can be seen or understood. Man knows this. Its just the ego in us that makes us believe anything we can't subdue or understand is non existent.

I know there is a God deep within my spirit. And yes, man has a spirit that no scientific experiment can fathom.

Doctors work a lot with dead people and they have observed that they all have livers.  In addition, you can scan the body of a live human being using modern non-intrusive devices to establish the presence of liver in just about every human being.  They have also observed that those whose livers are removed or damaged due to accidents or infection will experience a lot of health problems and die within a short time.  So if exu is a healthy it is logical to conclude that he has a liver based on a mountain of consistent evidence.

On the other hand, how many documented reports of people who have been to heaven do we have?  Of those who claim to have had out-of-body or near-death experiences, or who claimed that they saw heaven, how come their tales are always inconsistent? 

And why did the Nigerian TV evangelists stop broadcasting their miracle programmes when NCC insisted that they most show evidence that these miracles are really happening?

Bad analogy? so u think? proof or no proof. have u ever seen your own liver. How r u sure u've got one? It seems u guyz based your arguments on the fact that u must see God to believe.

I ask again. have u ever seen ur liver? How r u sure you've got one?

I know I have a liver because it has been scientifically proven, several times...that was a bad analogy my friend.

However, the only thing we know regarding God is that his existence is a possibility...therefore all the claims made as to God's benevolent, omnipotent character are, at best, guess work...

Just because it's recorded in a book does not mean that it's true...

Jackie, are you suggesting that those who believe in God do not partake in the suffering in the world?

@exu

God came to us 2000 years ago and none of us were in exitence by then,  and he's still gonna come, so we believe and live by the book of life which is the Bible.

This is very true but again this is your choice,  God created the world, and he is very flexible  The Bible says i give you life and dead and it's totally your choice.  So for those who believe  in God, he sure does surronds them, but if you don't believe in God then u re doomed, they do all sorts of evil.

Some interesting answers: Knowledge of 'God' from the day you were born.

Without meaning to cause offence, if that were true, there would be no need for organized religion, people would know the truth.

As for 'God' being all around us, well that may or may not be true. But we all know that the world is not all good, and yet 'God' created everything, including those deemed responsible for the evil we see.

I see God all around me. His beautiful works speak a lot about Him. He hears my prayers. He gives me joy and peace beyond what the world can offer.

He reveals himself to me everyday through the bible, messages from annointed men and His still small voice during my quiet times. What more revelation do I need?
