There have been many times I have heard people ask, “Where did GOD come from”. In most cases, it is someone who is anti GOD. Sometimes, it is just a finite human asking about something that her/his mind cannot comprehend; an eternally existent being.
Suppose you were to design a new super computer. In it, you put many new designs and many new programs. In it, people can see your work and it has your signature way of doing design. Some would be amazed at your work, others would criticize the design because it is not how they would have done it. Still others would copy your work, with their design changes, and claim it as their own. In all this, you would necessarily have to exist outside of the computer you are designing. Even though your fingerprints are all over it, you are outside of it. So it is with GOD.
In order for GOD to create time and space and matter, GOD would have to exist outside of time and space and matter. HE would have to have an existence that is foreign and completely different from that which HE created. Even though you would clearly see HIS fingerprints within the design, a consistency of style or a reflection of the extraordinary, you could never find GOD in the space or matter or the time HE created. Since the human mind is restricted by the creation of GOD, GOD could never be found by such a restricted being.
The GOD of creation, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and JESUS the CHRIST exists outside of time and space. HE is infinite in power, position, and presence. HE is in the beginning and the end at the same time. The Alpha and Omega, beginning and the end.
Man, in all his efforts, cannot find GOD within the realm of HIS creation. GOD cannot be found by using that which HE created. GOD must rather choose to reveal Himself to man. Because GOD is spirit, it is necessary that GOD establish within a man a living spirit that can know GOD, and be known of GOD. JESUS called this being “Born again”.
The carnal man, the man born of the flesh and within the confines of the creation of GOD, cannot in and of himself, know GOD. 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. It is, therefore, incumbent upon GOD to make Himself known to those whom HE chooses to make Himself known. As it is written, HE will have mercy on whom he will have mercy.
In order to know GOD, you must be born again. That which is flesh is born of the flesh. That which is spirit is born of the SPIRIT. The first birth is to be born into a physical and fallen world, in a fallen and lifeless spiritual state. The second birth is to be born of the Spirit into a state of salvation and renewal. To be born again is to be given a new, living spiritual existence that can know the GOD of creation who exists outside of our ability to perceive HIM in the physical world.
Yet, our scientists have proven time and again that only GOD can have created this universe. Every attempt to prove otherwise has failed and is followed by, “We just haven't found the proof yet”. A blind belief that the world and all that is in this creation could exist without a creator, makes them willing to believe it without proof, on the premise that the proof just isn't found yet. Yes, more and more discoveries are found every day. All of them adding more questions and giving no real answers, except to prove that the GOD of creation is real and you can see HIS fingerprints of all HE has made.
