Where did God come from? (Part II)

God IS, WAS and WILL BE. Rather than being created, he is the CREATOR and the One who sustains everything that we see in this physical universe and that we do not see in the spiritual realm.

Jesus most certainly was God who gave up His divinity in order to come and be born a man, live, die and experience a resurrection from the dead. This is our Father's wisdom and his plan of salvation for man. It was Jesus who spoke things into existence and who dealt with the patriarchs from Adam through Isaac and then with children of Israel. It was He who wrote the Ten Commandments in stone with His own finger and who made the covenant at Mount Sinai with the children of Israel.

Among the more powerful statements made by Jesus declaring who he was and where he had come from came when he was speaking to some Jews who believed in him. He told them "before Abraham was born, I am!" (John 8:58). These Jews KNEW Jesus was claiming to be deity! 

The fact that they knew this was that, after Christ spoke these words, they immediately began to pick up stones to KILL HIM right then and there for the crime (in their minds) of blasphemy (see verse 59)! The law required a blasphemer to be stoned. They fully understood Christ was making the claim that He was the GOD who spoke to Moses through the miracle of the burning bush (Exodus 3:14).

By the use of the name "I AM," God is making the statement that He is ETERNAL. There never was a time when he did not exist and there never will be a time when He will not exist. In fact, TIME itself is a human concept and bears no relationship to his existence in the spirit realm.

The concept of an eternal Being is beyond normal human comprehension. The world's wisest man, Solomon, wrote that man cannot ultimately fathom all the things about God and what he has accomplished (Ecclesiastes 3:10 - 11).
