03A HOW GOD MAKES HIMSELF KNOWN TO MAN
Through nature, God makes Himself known, for nature reveals much about God to us. The sun tells of His glory; the stars tell the number of His years; each flower bud unfolds a message of love from Him.
But what we can know of God through nature is incomplete, for nature's revelation of God is incomplete. We wonder, Has God ever spoken directly to men in human language? Has He ever answered the questions that baffle us? The answer is, Yes.
While we have been groping, searching for God, He has been reaching out to us. He has not left us in the dark. In every age He has chosen men to be His messengers. Through them He has told about Himself, how He made the world, how sin and suffering came to be, and what He is doing about it.
God's men gave His messages by voice and pen while they lived; and when they died, their writing lived after them. These writings have been gathered together in a book we call the Bible.
Is it not reasonable that God should speak to men? The living God who made us exists, and if He exists, He must certainly make Himself known to man.
In the Holy Bible God makes known Himself and His purposes for man, His concern about man, His plan to better man's lot in life. The Bible is a storybook answering life's great questions, telling of God's dealings with men. It reveals the laws of God that govern our lives, and shows the result of obedience or disobedience to those laws. It not only shows God's view of the past, but it also opens up the future, disclosing how enduring peace and prosperity will finally come to our world. The Bible is a book of history, of prophecy and promise, showing God's whole plan for the human race.
Although the Bible is a very old book, in it God speaks to modern man. It is a personal message direct from God to us. He is our Father. We are His children. The Bible is His letter of mercy and love to His sons and daughters. In it He tells us how to be happy, how to have health and true wealth.
