If there is a God and He loves us like the Bible tells us, then why can’t we see, hear and touch him? Since we cannot see Him, does this mean that He wants to be distant or capricious, or wants to make things difficult for us? Of course, if we could see Him, then everyone would believe fully in God and probably be on their way to heaven. There would be no need whatsoever for faith, and probably no need for a Savior. Who would sin standing in the visible presence of God? Adam and Eve did choose to sin, but God was not visibly with them at the time, and they also had not yet realized the full consequences of sin.
In this book we will explore what God designed and intended for humankind, and what caused Him to become invisible, and why. My hope is that for many this will give a better understanding of God, His unfailing love for us, and why things are the way they are. I pray it also brings some comfort in life’s often difficult journey that requires such an exercise of faith. We will do this by looking at the words of God, himself.
In my life I have heard many teachings about the temptation and fall of man, and many times studied the scriptures concerning Eden. One day a few years ago God revealed to me something new and profound I had never noticed. There is no doubt the living Word and the Holy Spirit are famous for that, but this one blew me away. God will very soon reveal Himself to all whether we like it or not. Millions of Christians and Bible scholars worldwide agree that that all the necessary prophecies have been fulfilled and the signs of the return of Christ are undeniably upon us. But until the day Christ returns for His Church, let us see if God gave us any clues as to why we can’t see Him, and explore the origin and
necessity of faith.
