God Is: The existence of God and the universe

When Moses asked, “Who should I say sent me?” God replied with, what I think is one of, if not the most, profound explanations of who He is ever.

God said to Moses, “I AM who I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

God Is

To ask who created the Creator is indicative of a mind trapped within the intellectual and physical confines of a world where all things and all beings are created in some form or another.

God exists outside of those confines. He most literally IS. He is not created. He has no beginning and no end. God is infinite in a way that we can’t even begin to grasp. We have nothing to compare to the God who is, who exists, who always has existed, and always will exist.

Fond of the Insignificant

It’s in this deep reflection King David cries out in Psalm 8,

“What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”

How can this Being that is so infinitely magnificent, infinitely wonderful, infinitely existent care about human beings that are so utterly insignificant in comparison?

Creator Not Bound by Created

The idea that the universe can exist without a Creator is equivalent intellectually to the idea of a Creator existing without having been created Himself is wrong.

The universe must be created because the universe exists within the bounds of space and time, which are both also created. God exists outside of the natural, physical world. God is not bound by it nor subject to it.

God clearly expresses and explains His nature throughout Scripture as a being who is above and beyond nature. This is where the term “supernatural” comes in.

The universe is bound by God and the rules He establishes by His will. God is not bound by the universe.
