Evidence or Signs of God or Jesus From?

Updated on November 5, 2011

Proof of God?

Sightings of God and/or Jesus, depending on your beliefs, are appearing everywhere. However, when I see some of these "signs" from God, I have to question if this is truly what people are seeing or wanting to see?

Or better yet, is it a joke?

Miracles and Signs

The common definition of miracle is an event that is an exception to the laws of nature. In the Bible, however, what we call miracles are described as “signs and wonders” or acts of power that are attributed to God.

So, since when do "suggestions" become "signs" ?

I like to believe that if God has a message for us or wants to be seen, by all means he will be. But really folks, in a pancake or the backside of a dog? I would like to think that God has better respect for his creations than that.

Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know

Act 2:22

Signs are a representation of the power of God and his disciples themselves.

The creation of Adam and Eve, Noahs Ark,and the parting of the Red Sea. The birth, Death and Resurrection of Christ. These are signs. True displays. Miracles.

2 Corinthians 12:12

“Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.”

Are our lives so lost and empty of God and his teachings that we are looking for it in the strangest places?

Or are people fabricating the truth to make a dollar off his name?

People, the signs of God are within us! It is the feeling of full and completeness. God is the one pushing you in the right direction. He is what we call a conscience. I'm not a 'bible thumper' or a religious fanatic as some are referred as, but I do believe in a higher power. I just don't agree with the suggestion that God is showing himself through food or wood grain.

My daughter used to ask how she knew God was with her, I told her that when she gets that 'feeling' not to do something, deep within her stomach and heart, that is God. Follow where he is leading you.

I don't know if people are really thinking these are true signs or sightings of God, but I hope they find enough respect within themselves not to disgrace his name through foolishness.

      Ridiculous and tremendously sad that anyone would think that an image of Jesus on dog's backside is a portent from God. I am deeply grieved for those that would think that. I can find an image of anyone or anything in anything. It's like looking at the clouds. We might look up and see Bozo the clown and think its a sign you should become a clown.

      The fying pan Jesus was obviously designed as was the candy bar and the dog. Many years ago Jesus's image appeared on a wall in a small mexican village. People came from miles around to see and worship this miracle.

      On closer examination it was discovered the image was from a faded out poster of Willie Nelson. I myself believe in Jesus, I look for him in the hearts of others, and in the great majasty of the world, not in taco shells.

      Except for the jar label, I can clearly see jesuses profile in the dogs privates, JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT TO BELIEVE doesnt mean you are right. Make fun of G-Ds signs all you want but as the bible says "the unbelievers will mock" This is indeed a SIGN, may i ask more about these signs? DID YOU FIND THEM PERSONALLY? I would like to divine their meaning for us. Perhaps the items on which G-D has engraved his images refer to things. I would suggest the dogs privates is for people who deny G-D, clearly comparing atheists to dogs privates. And dogs are asociated with witches, and satanists, perhaps this is a message to all those of those "perswasions" that their days are numbered, numbered for ETERNITY is coming and they will be like the dogs behind, left behind, like the dogs behind.

      They must remember that the dogs tail does not wag the dog. And christians who are all UNITED in their Belief In G-D, the only true G-D. We are the dog, because a dog is loyal, and the unbelievers and the muslims are the dogs tail and behinds which will SOON BE SQUASHED. Yes Verily He Will Display His Power And We Will Be Delivered In

      striking photos collectioin. god to me is everywhere , in all the things and in all the times. we need nothing more to find in a particular design or sign or something like that. its a fallacy to limit the god into something.
