Acts 17:26-29.. 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
Paul states the truth of creation by God starting with Adam. From Adam came all humans living on the face of the earth. He also said God is sovereign over nations setting their boundaries and their time. I am reminded of the prophecy of Daniel of the great world kingdoms: Babylonian 605B.C.-539B.C.; Medo-Persia 539B.C.-331B.C.; Grecian 321B.C.-150B.C.; Roman 150B.C.-5th Century. A They rose and fell like clockwork. In the last century we saw the rise and fall of Hitler and Stalin.
We have witnessed the rise of the USA to be the world power and over the last 50 years the beginning of decline spiritually, morally and wallowing in total government debt and unfunded liabilities of +$150 trillion or $1 million per taxpayer. In v.27 Paul said these nations were given the opportunity to seek God. They could have sought Him because He is not far from each of us. The bible has many references to the universe demonstrating the existence of God and since Jesus we have the Word revealed in human form.
