God Has No Beginning or Ending
Adventure 2: The Greatness of God
Did God ever have a beginning, or will He ever have an end?
No. God is eternal. He always has been alive and always will be alive. Revelation 1:8 – "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
This Truth Makes
If we believed that God had a beginning, then that would raise a new question: “Who or what caused God”? If there were something or someone before God, then that would mean there could be something or someone greater than God. But God says: “There is none like me” (Isaiah 46:9).
God created time. Before there was time, There was a time when time did not exist as we know it. (Wow! Think about that for awhile, and smoke might start coming out of your ears!)
God is above time, but He chooses to act within the limits of time.
The Bible teaches us that God is the great un-caused One. Nothing caused God to happen – but God has given us life!
Q. Does God have to depend on anything for His existence (life) or His happiness?
A. No. God is uncreated and self-existent. He has no beginning or end. He calls Himself “Jehovah.” “I AM.” Christ declares: “The Father hath life in Himself.”
Some people think that God needs them. They think that God needs them so that He can have worshippers to love Him and make Him happy. But just the opposite is true: We need God in order to be happy. (See Psalm 16:11).
