People in life are always questioning, “If there is a God, who/how/why was He created?” They’ll also say, “Prove to me how God came into existence.” I’ve never questioned from where God’s existence came from because in the Holy Bible, King James Version, and in the first Book of Genesis 1:1 it tells people, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,” and to me this meant God was existent in the universe before and He’ll continue forever.
In my opinion here’s a key, “God created the heaven and the earth;” therefore, He formed the earth because it was without form, and void; and He provided all the essential things that people would require to live upon the earth; and His promises begin to come to fruition in a great nation possessing a great land God had built; and therefore, God was already existent in the universe to be able to do this.
This in my opinion I’ll use this as an example, “God is like time no-one knows when time began or if time will ever end;” “God has “no” end and He has “no” beginning either. He is Infinite: endless, eternal – no end ever.”
In the Bible and in Psalm 90:2, it tells people, “Before the mountains were brought forth, or you had ever formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.”
People might then ask, “How could this be? Who saw Him? How does an invisible unseen entity exist to form a world?”
“Genesis is a Greek word which means “origin,” “source,” “generation,” or beginning;” and the original Hebrew title “Bereshith means “In the Beginning.”
In the Bible and in the Book of John 1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, it tells people, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.” Notice it tells us in the beginning “was the Word,” and, “the Word was with God,” and, “the Word was God.”
In the Bible and in the Book of John 4: 24 it tells people, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
In the Book of Genesis 1: 2 the Bible tells people, “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. In my opinion this is telling people that the “Spirit of God existed” before time as three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us that before creation, God felt complete joy and fulfillment as He perfectly beheld and communed with “Himself.” The Trinity existed in perfect harmony and flawlessness, having all they needed in one another.
In my opinion this allows people to realize that God was happy and rejoiced with His complete and perfect knowledge of Himself; and “before He created the universe” He desired a total satisfaction in Himself. It tells us in the Book of John 1: 10, 11, “He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. “He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.”
Here’s an import key also: “He was in the world; and He came unto His own.”
The Bible also tells people in Psalm 93: 2, “Your throne is established of old: you are from everlasting.”
And in the Bible and in Revelation 1: 8 it tells people, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
And in Revelation 22: 13 it tells people, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
Jesus and God is one in the same; and Jesus was sent by God in the flesh to dwell upon the earth and to die for people’s sins; therefore, Jesus existed before creation with God and He will continue to live after with God for all eternity. Jesus took part in the creation of the world because He was in God. God and Jesus are eternal and the Alpha and Omega is as a Christian symbol signifying the eternal nature of Jesus Christ and God.
