WHERE GOD COMES FROM
When you open the Bible and read Genesis chapter 1 verse 1, you can read “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, ” but how had He come to be? Why cannot we see Him? What sort of body does He have?
If you really want to get answers for the above questions, read the following please, and think it over. This information may prove to be of vital importance for your future, whoever you are.
For centuries minds of humans all over the world have been pondering over the beginning of the universe. Since ancient times people have made various cosmologies about it. Some of them have been discussed by Dr Stephen W. Hawking, one of brightest minds of our times. In his book ”The Theory Of Everything,” he summarises some of the most vital that have been believed by people since humanity existence. Some of them presumed that “the universe started at a finite and not distant time in the past.” Other spread the viewpoint that the universe appeared within six twenty-four-hour days and were trying to prove, that it had stayed in agreement with biblical viewpoint. Contrary to those early believes, modern science assumes the universe is hundredths billions years old.
Who is right? Let us check proves in the Bible to find out who is closer to the truth.
If you open the Bible at the Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1, you can read: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Notice please, that it does not say how long in lasted. That verse only says that the heavens (invisible as well as visible universe) with the earth in it were first things created or made.
Our experience teaches us, that it is impossible to have something from nothing, so what did God create them from and where? Let us start from the back side.
In verse 2 of the same book and chapter we read: “Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters.”
If you look deep into the universe, you will clearly notice that all sources of visible light in the universe are surrounded by darkness. So darkness is predominant ‘material’ (if I may say so) in space. In that darkness which is endless, infinite (like ‘abyss’ – something which has no bottom, a bottomless pit) has always existed the Person (‘the Person’ as I assume He was the only one) who was self-sufficient or autonomous, which means He did not need anything or anybody to continue His existence or ‘living’. He had life within Himself. You can read about it in the book of Psalms, chapter 36, verse 9: “With you is the source of life;By your light we can see light.”
I let myself to say in parenthesis here, that described darkness may be called nothingness. By nothingness I understand space not filled with objects, which is situated beyond the universe. In it exists finite (having its own measurements) universe, that is surrounded by a sort of membrane (like balloon). The universe can spread infinitely spreading its size (like a balloon, that can be always inflated making its size constantly bigger).
That person (not ‘being’- as He is intelligent – while ‘beings’ do not have to be) decided to create many things. The very moment He started creating things He became the God. Why am I so sure? My assurance flows out of what is written in the book of Isaiah, chapter 43, verse 10, which reads: “‘You are my witnesses’ declares Jehovah, ‘Yes, my servant whom I have chosen,So that you may know and have faith in meand understand that I am the same One.Before me no God was formed,and after me there has been none’.” The word ‘formed’ indicates, that this existing person was ‘shaped’ God, but by whom? As He was the only Person, that means by Himself, when He decided to create things. So, what body does He have? Let us see other scriptures.
Isaiah, chapter 40 verse 23 reads: “Lift up your eyes to heaven and see.Who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number;He calls them all by name.Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power,Not one of them is missing.”
God has spiritual body, which means made of energy. As the material universe is made of energy and is filled energy (vast dynamic energy that flows out of Jehovah God [Jehovah – God’s personal name]), so it is not the type of energy known to us. It is the type energy about which existence we may know only by observation of terrestrial bodies, and by mathematical calculations which prove it. Existence of ‘black energy,’ which is the only repulsive force influencing all terrestrial bodies while they themselves are attracting each other, is proved that way. To conclude, science supports the Bible, even though it is not a science book.
We cannot see God as the spiritual body He possesses is a type of energy, which cannot be seen or measured by us and our technological equipment.
I would like to encourage every reader to turn to internet page http://www.jw.org/en to find out information why the Bible is scientifically correct as well as some more information about the origin of life.
Thank you for reading.
