Alright. So Richard is asking where did God come from? That is a great question, Richard. And that’s something I think everybody kind of asks at some point or another. If you know, when you contemplate who is God, where did he come from?

Speaker 1

Because, you know, when we look at each other, we look at human beings and we’ve had a beginning, we had a birth, we have parents, we were born, we had a beginning. But God isn’t like us in that way. And I’m going to go ahead and show you guys a few quick verses. It’s a pretty straightforward answer about God, but basically he does not have a beginning. So where did God come from?

Speaker 1

You would say he’s self existing and not created. He is the Creator, he is the source of creation, he’s a source of life.

Speaker 1

Is that biblical? You might say. Well, how do you know? Well, let’s look at the Bible. Let’s go to Psalms, chapter 41 and let’s see looking at verse 13.

Speaker 1

So just so you know, I’m not making this up, god actually tells us everything we need to know in his word. That are things we need to know. So when you look in the book of Psalms, chapter 41, verse 13, it says something interesting. It says, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel. So basically the true God from everlasting to everlasting.

Speaker 1

Amen and amen. And so God is from everlasting to everlasting. He has no beginning, he has no end. Jesus kind of reiterates this in the book of Revelation, chapter one, who he says, I am the Alpha and the manga, the beginning and the ending. So how can he be somebody who is the beginning and the ending?

Speaker 1

He has no beginning, he has no end. And you see that again even more clearly because there are some denominations out there that say, well, God had a mother or something along those lines and I have to disagree. There’s no mother to God. I’m sorry. God is self existing and not created

Speaker 1

And again, you see that talking about Jesus because Jesus is God. And that is very clear from the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament in Isaiah chapter nine, verse six, where it says, and unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, the Son of God and the government shall be upon his shoulders and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father. The Son is called the Father because they are one and the same. They’re both God.

Speaker 1

The Prince of Peace. And so here we see in Hebrews, though, chapter seven in the New Testament, speaking of Jesus, it compares Jesus to this high priest called Melchizedek. And he’s in the Old Testament, he’s basically who Abraham paid tithes to and his name Melchizedek, he was called the King of Salem, which means the King of peace. He’s basically a symbol of Jesus. And so in Hebrews chapter seven, it says something very interesting about his priesthood.

Speaker 1

And so if you look at Hebrews one through seven it talks about this I kind of summarized verse one about Melchizedek, this priest who was also the King of Salem, the King of peace, it says a priest of the most High God who Abraham met after this battle. In verse two it says to whom also Abraham gave a 10th part of all. So basically Abraham gave a tithe, basically being called the King of righteousness and also the King of sailing, meaning King of peace. So this King who’s Melchizedek, meaning king of righteousness and King of peace, again, definitely a symbol of Jesus. In verse three it says without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.

Speaker 1

So basically his priesthood had no beginning. It had no end, neither beginning of days nor end of life. But just like the Son of God, Jesus is this way. Jesus has no father and no mother. As far as a beginning, Jesus is God.

Speaker 1

And so when you think of Jesus, Jesus is Emmanuel God with us. Jesus is how we kind of understand who God is. And so that’s why it depicts Jesus in this way that yes, Jesus has a heavenly father, but not like a father, earthly father in that sort of sense, and not like a mother who birthed Him. Again. He is God.

Speaker 1

He is without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made again. That’s how the Son of God is.

Speaker 1

How he exists. He doesn’t have a beginning or an end. And so it’s kind of an interesting thought as far as who God is to think he is eternal. He has never had a beginning, he’ll never have an end. And so time with God is very different because our time is limited.

Speaker 1

But God’s time is unlimited, his resources are unlimited, his love is unlimited. Everything has no limits with God because he is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. He knows everything, he can do anything. He can be anywhere. God is amazing.

Speaker 1

And so he’s all in all. And so I guess that would be where God comes from. He doesn’t come from anything. He is the source of where everything else comes from because he is self existing. So I hope those verses help you out a little bit.

Speaker 1

And yeah, I just hope that you get to know the God of the Bible, who is eternal, who will never let you down because he’s always been, he always will be and he will never fail.
