Welcome to my website and blog! I’m a person who believes in the supernatural. I put trust in the paranormal events recorded in the Bible, for instance the six-day creation. On the other hand, since God is eternal, it’s not appropriate to think He was inactive until He formed our Earth and made Adam. The Scriptures explain that heavenly beings watched God create the foundations of our world (Job 38:4,7). This is Biblical insight that some of God’s heavenly creation existed before the six-day creation of Earth and humankind. Therefore, even though we are not totally aware of it, history goes back to an ancient time before Adam’s creation in the Garden of Eden.
Conversely, I don’t assume the world is billions of years old just because it’s popular to do so. I realize many people think the creation event described in Scripture defies scientific explanation. But the theory of uniformity that upholds evolution seems to demand relentless blind faith. Granted, the six-day creation was a supernatural event that some find difficult to believe. However, I suggest it’s worth considering because creation makes more sense with the intelligent design that can readily be seen in our world. If in doubt, I respectfully encourage a closer look at the creation theory.
The truth of the Bible has been tested and proven for centuries. When people truly put the Bible to the test and judge its authoritativeness and accuracy impartially, they often end up affirming that it is genuine. The resurrection of Christ and other miracles described in Scripture are often denied by science. However, I believe those events to be true as well, because God can perform acts unable to be explained by science.
On the other hand, I don’t discredit science to discover and confirm the natural world. I often lift up the importance of true scientific discovery. Before occult, mystical, or even contemporary popular or social events can be proven as valid, various means of proof must be researched. I don’t have a predisposition for or against phenomena of the unseen realm, nor do I belittle the popular views, or news. But alleged political or social events must be cross-examined with an inclination toward the truth and its discovery.
Without knowledge of the spiritual world and faith in truthful supernatural events, humans have insufficient explanations about this world’s matrix.
With confidence that the Bible describes many supernatural events, I believe the following:
- The Old and New Testament portions of the Bible are the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are foundational in practicing a life of faith in God. (II Tim. 3:15-17)
- Yahweh is the name of the Lord of All, the one eternal God of creation in three distinct Persons we call the Trinity. He has revealed Himself to be the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 1:1-3 15:26; 17:11, 21; II Cor. 13:14)
- Jesus is the Creator; He is the Son of God and became a man, the Christ. We worship Him as God, and yet we acknowledge that He became fully human. (John 1:1-3, 14-18; Heb. 1:2)
- Jesus of Nazareth was born of the virgin Mary. He is the Son of God and lived a perfect life but voluntarily suffered death by crucifixion to atone for our sins. (Luke 1:26-35, Matt. 27:26, 35, 44; 1 Pet. 2:22; Heb. 4:15,)
- The sacrificial suffering of Jesus and the blood He shed for humankind atones for our sins by impacting souls toward penitence, forgiveness, and reconciliation between God and individuals who repent. (Luke 24:47, Eph. 2:13, Heb. 9:14, Rom. 2:4, 1 John 2:2, 2 Corinthians 7:10)
- Jesus proclaimed the gospel of God – forgiveness for repentance of sins. The Lord upheld Jesus’ ministry by raising Him from the dead. He sits at the right hand of God and has all authority in heaven and earth. (Mark 1:14-15; Luke 24:47; Mark 16:6; Heb. 1:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Pet. 1:3-5)
- Resurrection from the dead to eternal life is possible for each person. Eternal life is a gift from God, not earned by works of the Law. The blood Jesus shed can encourage the gift of forgiveness which reconciles us to God. (NASB Rom. 3:24-25, 28, 4:5; 11:6; Gal. 2:16; Eph. 2:8)
- The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the Trinity and possesses all the divine attributes of the Father and Son. When believers enter into Christ’s body, the church, the Holy Spirit enters them. He is a Helper to the believer, providing various gifts to equip the saints to serve one another. (John 14:26; Luke 12:12; Acts 2:38-39; 1 Cor. 12:4-31; Eph. 2:19-22; Gal. 5:16-25)
