The fingerprint of God

Some theologians say that God only wrote something with His finger three times in all. Once, when He wrote the Commandments on stone, another time, on the wall of the palace of king Belshazzar, and the last time was when Jesus wrote in the sand.

In my opinion, I do not think that was very much; however, it is possible to see more of the traces which God left behind if you are really interested. There is one thing which we want to look at closely, that being, the fingerprint of God.

Everywhere where God has taken part in doing something, you can see the fingerprint of God - whether we look at the perfection of His creation, above in heaven or below on earth. He has left nothing to coincidence, it is all exactly the way He wants it to be. Jesus Christ is this Creator.

Col. 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: Why?
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

There are almost 6 billion people on this earth, and we know that the fingerprint of each one is different. Although none of us from the 6 billion are able to examine it for ourselves, we believe it because science tells us that is the way it is. Every individual can be identified as according to this fingerprint. Here is an example: Let’s say that you were in a small pizzeria, you put your bag down and drink out of your glass. You have left fingerprints on it, although they are not visible to the eye. You leave the glass there and go home. Meanwhile, a fight takes place in the pizzeria which you had just been at and no one comes out alive; however, the culprit manages to escape. The detectives look for traces and discover your fingerprints on your glass. Immediately they are examined, in order to see who they belong to.

If the fingerprints are recorded in a file, it is possible for the department for murder to immediately find out who you are, and in just a moment, they can find out your address and telephone number. The reason being that the fingerprint on the glass is evidence that this particular person was present. The creation is the glass, the fingerprint is the evidence that a creator was there. The Word of God confirms that the fingerprints of the creation belong to Jesus Christ. There are no other fingerprints to be found from another God. God is perfect. HE will never get smaller or bigger, weaker or stronger.

He is omniscient, omnipresent, unchangeable, and omnipotent. If He builds something, then it will remain there for as long as He wants it to. When He does something, who is able to correct Him? In all His works of creation, we see His fingerprint. When God gave Noah the measurements for the ark, it was constructed in such a way that it would fulfill its purpose. The flood and the storm came, and along with them death too; however, the boat survived, for the fingerprint of God was upon the boat. When God commanded Moses to build the tabernacle, and along with it the items of furniture too, God gave Moses precise instructions of how He wanted this holy place and its items to be. It was the most perfect building construction ever upon this earth, for the architect was God Himself. His people Israel could see the fingerprint of God upon it.

The Bible describes the Christian church of the first Century. God performed signs and wonders through those who believed. Whoever doubts should not expect a miracle to take place. When miracles take place you can see the fingerprint of God; however, this is not the case nowadays in most of the preaching which is going on!!! If a gospel is preached which keeps the people bound in darkness, then the fingerprint of a human being is visible and most definitely that also of the devil. God’s fingerprint in your life will give you peace, blessing and fellowship with Him; after all, this is the purpose for which He has made us, so that we can have a relationship with Him. Obey Acts 2:38! rw
