Q. A friend at work asked me who created God. In Genesis 1:1 it says, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.” I believe that with my whole mind, heart and soul, but it doesn’t answer the question of who created God, where did He come from, or how did He come into being?
A. In some religions, people believe their god was created. Others believe their god used to be human like we are and became a god. But no one created the one true God because He is the Creator of everything.
At the burning bush, Moses said, “If the Israelites ask me what your name is, what should I tell them?” God answered “Hayah, Hayah” or in English, “I AM That I AM. The Hebrew word “Hayah” is the verb “to be”. It means the Existing One. In other words, He always has existed and He always will exist. In Deut. 33:27 He’s called the Eternal God, and in Rev. 1:4 He’s the one who is, and who was, and who is to come. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Rev. 22:13).
