God's invisible qualities

Updated on August 9, 2009

No Excuse

Romans 1:20-21

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

I have been asked alot since my salvation birthday what if someone out there has never heard the name Jesus, and what He did to save us from death and hell?

For awhile I searched and read and prayed alot on the subject.

The time will come when nobody in the world will be without excuse.

We can see the passage above that creation and God's invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen..Open your eyes and look, get to a quiet place and let God search your heart and create in you a clean heart. All who are out there who have not excepted God and his  eternal power and divine nature are without excuse, it's all in His word.

Right now I'm reading a book about the persecuted in differant countries, and in one chapter a man went up to a woman on the street in Russia and asked her about Jesus, she said you know Jesus and all she could do is hug the man and said she knows His name, but she knows nothing else..His name, His name is powerful, she was excited, but she wanted to know more, she only new His name, because see God places things in our path to know Him or to know of Him, we are without excuse. Looking at a sunset, a baby or a flower we can see the almighty God in them all.

To know God and to really know God, is a relationship with God. We can be in a far off land and not even heard of the name God, and still God himself has placed a very real presense in our hearts, if we don't take Him for His word our hearts may be darkened because He gives us fare warning, we are without excuse. God doesn't go into deep deep details, its easy to know Him, its wonderful to know Him. Not to glorify Him or to give thanks to Him will be on our shoulders because He says He is the creator of the world and everything in it. It's hard to grasp specially as a unbeliever, but as He says we are without excuse, and inside our hearts is a yearning for something more, something with everlasting effects.

I like this part of the scripture, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Being understood from what has been made means to me that if we read about the creation in Genesis and ponder on God's wisdom and beauty we can see that all creation has so perfectly placed where God wanted it to  be, those who don't believe but believe the world just appeared or just happened are missing out on the wonderful qualities of our Lord, how He paints the sky, how he fills the oceans, how he forms a baby in the womb..Their missing out on something so wonderful. To stand in awe of creation is a benefit of its own, it keeps us Praising God, and one day all who did not know Him but new of Him and didn't even search for Him are missing out on so much.

I wouldn't have faith on something that just happened, or just appeared. God is the true creator, and man will be without excuse when they stand in front of GOD one day and say Lord Lord..Oh how we can just stand in awe of our Lord and what He did for us.

Isaiah 40:28

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

      Mark 5 years ago

      I have heard and believed with my whole heart that

      God is the one true God and I've been so blessed to know it. To those who have not accepted him, please read his love letter to you and then make a decision. To those of you who are young, please give him a chance.

      Psalms 19:1-3 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."

      Great Hub. No human will be without excuse. Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that HE is LORD. He is worthy of it. Praise God for His grace to let us see Him in creation because many don't.
