There is a lot of conspiracy about whether God is still alive or even if He exists, I say nothing comes from nothing. Someone created all this in six days and rested on the seventh. 
     “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said let there be light: And there was light.”  
     “And God said, Let us make man is our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man is His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” Genesis 1: 1-3, Genesis 1: 26-27 
     Often times the counter argument is that Jesus is dead because the Bible says so, while I agree He did die, He didn’t stay dead. In the last few chapters of the Gospel books, Matthew-John, the Bible talks about the aftermath of Jesus’ crucifixion.  
     “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simpon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid Him. Peter therefore went forth and the other disciple and came to the sepulchre. So, they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went in not. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin that was about His head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture that He must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again unto their home.” John 20:1-10 
     The “disciple whom Jesus loved” is John, and Peter was the one with him. What basically happened is that Mary saw that the stone that sealed the mouth of Jesus’ tomb was rolled away. She assumed that someone had taken Him. When the other disciples went in the Bible mentions how the napkin that covered his eyes wasn’t with the cloth that covered His body. Instead it was in its own place folded, so the one wearing it had to have taken it off.  
     “But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, and seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. And when she had this said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto Him, Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and said unto Him, Rabboni; which is to say master.” John 20:11-16 
     “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.” John 20: 24-25 
     “And after eight days again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrus it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God.” John 20: 26-28 
     So not only does this one chapter in the Bible confirm that Jesus was resurrected but it also confirms that he is God.
