Is There God in Heaven?

Introduction

God himself has an answer to this question in scriptures. He seems not to take this notion kindly by the way he responds to those who query His existence. The following hub seeks to provide evidence to this effect.

The poem speaks of a mankind that dwells in magnificent splendor, and yet is ready to swear upon its existence about being a good accident. Man’s intelligence is hereby questioned by comparing its thought pattern against nature’s endowments that happen to be too good an accident to have happened. It is all in the light of God’s utterance that “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God” that man's folly is laid bare through physical evidence.


In the beginning was the word

The word was with God

And the word was God

A source well defined

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


In a world created of nil

Aware not of self

Neither conscious of existence

But a speck was I

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


Now come of age

Can I say there is no God

Off mum sprung I

My origin she knows not

Yet the fool in his heart says

Does God exist

He holds the earth in his hand

Humans, a beauty to behold

Intelligence abounds, no measure

My home, the orb resplendent

An accident I claim I was

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


My age a seven decade span

Its control beyond my reach

A splash in time bloated away

My memory ceases to exist

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


I know the end of my body

But my spirit and soul, nay

Speculation abounds at heart

My learned brain no better

Yet the fool in his heart says

God does not exist


Accidents resemble me not

I’m fearfully and wonderfully made

The creator knows my spirit

A candle lit on the inside

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


Men of valor, gone before me

Their acts, a shadow in the past

Like dog’s dung in a lonely field

How vain life can be

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


The sun, warmth bequeathed

The moon, a light in the dark

A balance of life for me

To comfort my stay a day

Yet the fool in his heart says

Is there a God


My home on orb I dwell

But fall off, never have I

Least of cares do I care

How this can be

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


I know not from whence I came

Nor do, where I goeth

My cares winds carry away

But I know the winds exist

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


Know I not whence oxygen comes

But easy breath I all day

Not a morsel did I give

This found I to be so

Yet the fool in his heart says

God are you there


With bread my tummy I fill

Down it flushes with water

Bread baked by mine hand

Water whose source I know not

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God


At night my heart pumps

My Days a heartbeat aplenty

Till death never to cease

This I found to be so

Yet the fool in his heart says

There is no God

Hi MarleneB,

It is indeed a pity to note the blindness that God describes in us before we get to know him. Curiosity made me find out what he really thinks of us, when we fail to notice his creativity. I pray that the curtain be lifted off so that light shines where darkness engulfs.

Thanks for the visit and compliment

We just have to look out our front door to know there is a God. I feel bad for the fool in your poem who is missing so much about life that many of us already know. Beautiful poem.

Hi WD Curry 111,

Thanks for your additive evidence on the mighty one. The most profound of all evidence is not even visible to our naked eye. It is often beyond our conceptualization. Electrons as you say are part of the evidence. It fits, in that he too is also invisible. Thanks for taking time to visit my turf. Please do come again.

There is less evidence of electrons. We only see where they left a trail on some film. Is it solid "proof" of what they are? Like your poem expresses, the evidence is everywhere, but he fool says in his heart . . .

Hi Deb Welch,

You are right. There is a God in heaven who created you and is constantly watching over you. We ought to give him praise. Thanks for your positive remarks.

Hi MargaritaEden,

Everything about the Ancient of Old is beautiful and true. Very well spoken in the light. He holds a deeper love for you.You are most welcome.

Hi Mhatter,

The knowledge in God is unfathomable to we mortals. We fall short of words to describe his existence. Most welcome. Please, do come again.

Hi Jewels,

Each man and woman knows there is a home to which we must go despite opposition from those who are drunk with the wine of this world. Too good to let go. You are welcome

There is a Father God. We had a DareDevil walk a tightrope across the roaring Niagara Falls, NY to Niagara Falls, Ont. Canada in the thick mist on a 2 inch thick cord - and made it safely. King of Tightrope Walking.

He did not falter - and praised Jesus and Father God all the 26 minutes it took to walk 4 football fields over the Mighty Niagara Falls.

Heaven is called the Fields of Peace or the World to Come in the Kabbalah and this came from Egyptian mythology. Other traditions do understand the concept of 'Heaven.' Their way to it just differs. It's not wrong, it's just different.

Hi Alancaster,

I'm glad to see you here. Too sad that we have to pass on to find the answer. I doubt whether a Buddhist, a Hindu or a follower of any other belief is capable of providing the answer. But there is an opportunity to try and see what they have to offer. It is interesting to read others' views. It was great to have you around. Take care

To find out for certain, you'd have to 'pass over' and ask some questions. Unlikely you'll get a straight answer, though, as you can't get one this side either. You might as well ask the same question of a Buddhist, a Hindu or a follower of any other belief. Christianity only came to Europe through the back door (Rome) as a minority cult, and pushed the others out by intimidation. Either you believe or you don't, but we've only recently earned the right to doubt.

Hi Beyondmax,

It is nice to see you here. The thought had to be printed in response to what is getting to be general concensus. Thanks for your compliments. Do come again

Hi mackyi,

Thanks for your positive remarks. Many people shun God to their detriment. He is a reality we ought to be conscious of on a daily basis. They will soon be crying "Oh my God" before long as you say. Thanks again for passing by.

I have come to realize that we do have a huge percentage of people globally who have been questioning the existence of God! No doubt,it's very difficult trying to convince these individuals that God do exist. In fact, it doesn't worth the time and effort! however, One thing I find amazing, is that whenever they are confronted by death, the first words that usually come of their mouth are "Please Help Me God". Amazing!

Great wisdom here in this hub. We see evidence of God all around us but yet we close our eyes in disbelief. Voted up!

Hi TToombs08,

Thanks for passing by and for the comment too. I agree with you. Sometimes though, we behave worse than teens despite our knowledge. Where do we expect our teens to lean? Thanks again for coming. Take care

I think we are a lot like teenagers, we have to experience things first hand and refuse to listen to older, wiser beings. :) Voted up and more.
