How did God come to be?

God has always existed. He is omnipresent, meaning he has no beginning or end. God is known as the Great I Am! That means always was, is now and always will be. Eternal. It is very difficult for us to comprehend because we live within “time” and are constrained by its limits. 

God existed before the creation of the universe, before earth came into being, before mankind was created, and even before the angels entered His realm. This is one of those mysteries where we come to trust God. 

In time, through experience, we can see how God has worked in the lives of men and women in the past and see how He is moving in the lives of millions today. For those that trust in Jesus as Savior, one day they will see God face-to-face and enjoy his presence forever on the new earth he has promised.

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.

Revelation 21:1

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.

Isaiah 65:17
