Fairy Tale

  Do you believe in God, heaven, hell, angels, demons, eternal life, etc.?  Quite often, as I explain what the Bible has to say about the unseen, I am reminded that many perceive these things as nothing more than fairy tales.  The average man has a tendency to reject, out of hand, anything that cannot be experienced in real time with his five senses, or perhaps anything that he cannot masterfully manipulate.  But when that same man attempts to explore the infinitely small or infinitely large elements of our complex physical realm, it becomes apparent to him that even the wisest men among us are hopelessly narrow minded, and infinitesimally small.

  The eternal things are not fairy tales, nor are they myths.  This great design requires a Great Designer—obviously from that other realm.  The intricacies of life were understood before they were set in motion.  The laws of nature are anything but random—nothing just happened.  Millions or billions of years of blind, unrefined, unrestrained natural forces could not have affected change in the vast “nothing,” so as to produce a “something.” …and cosmic energy could not have produced life where there was none.

  So, if we are not able, in a lifetime, to wrap our minds around the stuff of this temporal world, why should we be so quick to deny even the existence of a spiritual realm, especially when we consider all of the undeniable evidence existing in the well ordered cosmos in which we reside (Romans 1:20)?  The Bible suggests, “…the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (2Corinthians 4:4)”

  For me, it’s a no brainer, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1–2)” “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (Colossians 1:16)”  If indeed there is another realm, perhaps you would do well to discover it now rather than later.
