New arrivals. Add to Wishlist. Katherine was a biologist. She taught physical science, biology, and chemistry; she understood the way the world worked, including the intricate functions of the human body until she made the trek to Ethiopia. Her husband suggested the trip on a whim. Katherine agreed, but how could she have known that her moment of agreement would change her life forever?
Brother Benedict, a monk, led her over the mountains of Ethiopia.
He led her to the very highest cliffs, and that daythat momentmade her doubt every bit of science she had ever known. She found God on that mountain. She touched heaven, and when she touched heaven, she felt its power and promise. Her guide calmly told her, You have experienced the Lalibella Moment. Katherine discovered a hidden holy land.

Other nations claim they have gods because they have the statues. This is the battle of faith versus sight. In fact, what is visible is temporary, and what is invisible is eternal. Our God is invisible because He is Spirit and eternal. The so-called gods are not really gods. They are just statues made by human hands. They are made from gold and silver. They are human-made. How can they be gods and higher than human who make them?
In the past, people worshipped sun, moon, trees, lightning, sea, etc. They also worshipped statues and images. They did that because that was what they could see and touch. Being born in sin, they refused to give glory and worship the invisible Creator. With the advance of science, not many people worship sun, moon, or stars.
Few believe that statues can be of any help. But still, we are born in sins, and even with the progress of science, our heart is still the factory of idols. Today, we worship science, technology, and economy. We still cling to what is visible.
Theosophy : Man Visible and Invisible by C.W. Leadbeater
We worship science because it produces visible results in lab. We worship technology because we can grab them in our hands. We worship economy because we can read and count numbers in our bank account.

In response to the mocking question about our God, the answer is firm: Our God is in the heavens ; He does all that He pleases Ps. Our God, the only true God, transcends space and time. As sinful creatures, we refuse to believe in that kind of God. We choose to worship things that we can see within the dimension of space and time.
Yet, our God is in the heavens, says Psalm God is invisible because He is great and surpasses the limit of space and time. If He is visible, just like the statues of gods, then He is not really the almighty God. Although invisible, God does all that He pleases.
2. Jesus shows us God’s mercy
In fact, He does everything that we are seeing in the world. Since God is all-powerful and all-present, nothing happens without His permission. He is sovereign and in full control of His created world. Creation is bound by time and space, and therefore, it is not eternal. One day, the people whom you are seeing, will disappear from earth. The things that you are seeing and enjoying now, will be gone. Can you find a typewriter around you?
Can you find them in Walmart or Costco? God is invisible because He is God and eternal. He is the Ultimate Reality. Nothing is as real as God, and yet many people consider Him unreal.
As we see above, nothing lasts forever, and yet we consider them real. Deep down, there is a voice that warns us about the inevitable and invisible God who is more real than anything we consider real. In our sinful nature, we exchange the reality of the invisible God for the temporary and soon-to-disappear things. Yet, our sense of comfort and dependence should come from trusting in Him, and not in anything else. When we believe and acknowledge God as the true and eternal God, we can have true comfort and peace. This is where faith comes. Faith believes and sees what is unseen Heb.
Faith faces challenges daily. We are visual creatures, and we rely on our eyes for our survival. Many times we hear stories of people who become atheists simply because they give up the belief in the invisible God. Science makes things simpler and makes more sense.
