Can one prove God exists?

(Related key-words/phrases, topics:- "Does God exist?", "Is Jesus God?")

A zillion dollar question has always been “Can one prove or disprove the existence of God”?.

A related very important question is: “Is believing in God an act of blind faith?

Many scholars, actually claim that one can make a very strong case for GOD.
They often cite many “prophecies” which they claim to have been fulfilled over the course of human history to make a case for God. For instance, non-trivial prophesies about Jesus’s life made hundreds of years before Jesus came (Book of Isiah, Book of Daniel).

Following two passages from Scriptures are also used to defend why prophecies about future events can be used to make a strong case for the existence of God:-  

- Isaiah 44:7-9: “Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me,since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen.”
(That is, God of the Bible is suggesting a great way, via prophesies, to test if “God” is real).

- Isaiah 42:9 See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you."
(“God” is actually very much expected to prophesy about future events. So, if non-trivial prophecies attributed to “God” are turning out to be true during the course of human history, then one can make a strong case for “God”)

Jesus, also referred to the prophesies in the Old Testament, to justify that He was God (also by fulfilling the relevant ones through Himself) - John 5:30-47.

Finally, two great books to check out:-
- Case for Christ (Lee Strobel)
- More Than a Carpenter (Josh McDowell)
