“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” John 1:18
LIGHT FOR NOW: We serve a God who doesn’t have a beginning. He is the beginning Himself and the beginning began with Him.
In the course of this study, we had said that you cannot know God by theories and postulations. Nobody can find God out by science, by psychology, by philosophy. In fact, you can’t find God out by religion. Let me say this ahead of time; God is the one responsible for the revelation of Himself to man, not science or psychology or philosophy. In fact, in our previous studies, we saw the limitation of science and man to track God or find God out. This is because man in time, science in time (concurrent with space and matter) cannot track God who is outside of time, space and matter. So the question about “the origin of God or where God came from” seems to be a confused question. However, it can be answered and let’s answer it here having understood what we’ve learnt so far. To ask “God where did you come from” or to ask “of the origin of God” is to ask:
- God, who is your God?
- The Creator, who created you?
- God, when He started existing or when did He begin?
Don’t forget, you (man) were the created and God the creator who created man the created. So, the created (man) is asking His creator (God) who created His creator. Man in time is asking God who is out of time, what time did you begin. Now, if God (the creator) has a creator who created Him, then that creator who created God is God and God created by that creator ceases to be God. For God to be created or for Him to have an origin means He is subjected to time, and for him to be subjected to time means He is not God. But you and I know that no creator somewhere created God; He wasn’t created, He Himself is the creator. He doesn’t have an origin, He Himself is the origin. Are you looking for the origin of God? Your answer is God. The origin of God is God. He doesn’t have a beginning, He Himself is the beginning. He is not tracked by time, space and matter; He Himself created time, space and matter and so time, space and matter cannot track Him. He is the creator who is not created. He is the uncreated creator. He preceded the beginning and began the beginning when the beginning began. So, God doesn’t have a beginning or an origin, He Himself is the beginning and origin. That is why He is God. We serve a God who doesn’t have a beginning, He is the beginning and the beginning began with Him. He created time, space and matter, but He is outside of time, space and matter and regulates time, space and matter. How then do you think that science and man can factor God out?
