God’s Invisibility A Big Factor – Pastor Chukwuemeka Charles Asiegbu

God’s Invisibility:

God's InvisibilityGod’s invisibility has been the point reiterated rhetorically and keenly by people who do not believe in God. So the question of God’s whereabouts is a thing that should be answered. God’s invisibility has induced statements like, “if there is God, where is He?” To them, inasmuch as God is not visible to unclad eyes, there is no point saying that He exists.

This factor of God’s invisibility has become a hard nut for many to crack. For this reason many who would have liked to believe in God decided to think otherwise. The attention has been placed on a kind of God that is visible, and can be located and reached to ask some questions. It is unbelievable that someone made this magnificent world and He’s nowhere to be found. At least He should appear once in a while so that people can count on Him.

However, to many of them if the factor of God’s invisibility can be resolved they will not go contrary to His will.  That is to say the physical presence of God will induce His fears in them. For this reason they want a God they will see physically and fright about because He is seen with unclad eyes.

There are yet many who have wanted a God that they can reach out to and demand His assistance in destroying their enemies with all alacrity. Therefore, if this kind of God that people have created according to their thoughts doesn’t exist, it means that there is no God. Many have argued that it is stupid to believe in somebody that you cannot see. Well, to them it is an awkward situation to be.

Man And God’s Invisibility:

God’s invisibility is so much a stroppy situation for man, who is always miserable and vulnerable to so many harsh and smothering conditions. And he needed a God that is always handy but couldn’t find Him. Probably they want to see Him so that they can question Him why He created them.  And put them in such a situation that is terrible and horrific. For this reason they are repelled when the name ‘God’ is mentioned.

This is because He cannot be exculpated from the situation they find themselves in this world. And on the contrary we see many who are working assiduously, campaigning and making it known to people that God exists. That God’s invisibility is not a factor to consider though they have not seen Him with their unclad eyes.

 Why Christianity is considered a weakling HERE

“Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 21:29 NKJV

The question is this, why would these people believe that there is God and He does exist without seeing Him? And again, if there is no inner conviction why would people take up the option of dying because of their belief in God? For these reasons, it is proper and important to verify their stance in this matter. To this category of people, the factor of God’s invisibility doesn’t matter. This is because to them it is an impious proof that God does not exist. The factor God’s invisibility cannot be the yardstick to ascertain the existence of God. This is based on the fact that there are lots of things that the unclad eyes cannot perceive. But their existence has been confirmed by their activities.

God’s Invisibility His Identity:

However, let’s get some facts straight. Evidence has shown that everything taking existence on this planet earth and even beyond has unique identity for which it is known. One of the ways to describe an object is by narrating the configuration and the characteristics of the object. The description given will help to identify the particular object. And if followed correctly one would arrive at the exact potion. This, however, shows that things will continue to be what they are because it is their identity.

This of course is irrespective of one’s acceptability, likability and agreement with them. Just because someone hates the shape of a snake would not make the snake to change its shape. And just because someone hates the way and manner the lion hunts for its prey will not make the lion to change its nature. Every creature gives birth to offspring that looks like them. This is because their gene and character is passed on to their offspring and that is the way it is.

Obviously, there are things we don’t have solution to. It is just the way it is so we learn to accept it or not, like it or not, agree with it or not. But whether ‘positive or negative’, the reality is that our position will not alter the fact about the identity or nature of that particular thing.

There Is Nothing Humans Can Do About It:

God is the Creator of all things. He made them and gave them definite identities that are unique. And that is the way they have to look. There is no way a lion for instance can turn itself to a cat, and a snake to worm. Therefore, a lion is a lion and a cat is a cat. In the same stem God has His own nature or identity as the case may be. His nature is invisible to our unclad eyes. And He cannot say because we are grumbling that He is invisible and so decides to be visible. However, if we like we can grumble from the surface of the earth to the very highest heavens; God’s invisibility will still remain a factor. This is because invisibility is His nature.

The fact to hold on here is that, our disagreement and agreement to the nature of God cannot affect His position as God. It is so because our position doesn’t matter at all. Therefore, does His invisibility disqualify His existence? Well, the answer is an emphatic No! This is because invisibility is His nature. It is His identity! Just consider this, bacteria are not visible to our unclad eyes but we cannot overlook their activities. We should do everything possible to avert their dangerous activities against our body and environment. It is only a fool that will say because he is not seeing bacteria with his naked eyes therefore, they don’t exist.

“Who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.”

1 Timothy 6:16 NKJV

Why Is God Invisible?

God's InvisibilitySo why is God invisible? Because God lives in a realm that is quite different from the realm in which we live. This suggests that the realm of God does exist and it is the realm He has chosen to dwell. As the Creator of the world God has the sovereign right to choose any part of the earth to dwell. And therefore, He has chosen a realm that is not visible to people’s unclad eyes.

No one lives in the things he has made, but the things he made run and operate by the demonstration of his wisdom. The man that produced the computer does not live inside the computer. But the reality is that his wisdom makes the computer looks superlative and humanized sometimes. The man who made the car does not live in the engine of the car, but he has sufficient information about the engine. And can always detect any fault in the engine by the mere sound of the engine. This is possible because he made the engine.
