The Spiritual Microscope
Many people deny the existence of God and do not believe what they do not see. However, as you know, our sensory system is very incomplete. Do you know how many germs live on your hands? It’s said that there are about 10,000 to 1,000,000 bacteria on our hands. However, can you see them? Will you say that there are no germs on your hands because you cannot see them? We can see them through a microscope. Even though we cannot see them with our bare eyes, it’s true that there are lots of germs on our hands.
Let’s think about another example. Do you know how many galaxies there are in the universe? A 2013 study indicated that there are 225 billion galaxies in the observable universe. It’s also said that each galaxy contains around 200 billion stars. The universe is so vast that we cannot measure its size. But the number of the stars we can see is limited. Even though we cannot see them, so many galaxies and stars exist. We can see some of them through telescopes.
How about the spiritual world? Can we say that the spiritual world does not exist because we cannot see it? Just as we see the microworld with microscopes and the macroworld with telescopes, so we can understand the spiritual world through the Bible.
You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me (John 5:39)
The Bible testifies about the Savior and also the existence of the kingdom of heaven. If you study the prophecies of the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation, you will realize the Bible is true and you will be able to believe in the Savior whom the Bible testifies about. The Bible says we should seek the Spirit and the Bride in this age (Revelation 22:17.) How about studying the prophecies of the Bible to understand that the Bible contains the Words of God and to realize who the Spirit and the Bride are?
