WHO IS GOD: WHERE WAS HE BEFORE HE CREATED THE EARTH?
Answer: These are good questions who is God and where was he before he created the earth. Jesus said in the book of John 4:24, “God is a spirit” This means that God is invisible being.
Where was he when he created the earth?
The Bible tells us that he was “In the beginning”
What is “In the Beginning”, the types of elements therein, how God came into the beginning; what is the name of the “In the Beginning”; with whom was he with when he created the earth and who is the “us” at creation are manifold questions we shall receive the answers and the understanding in this top question, 1:
Who is God and where was he before he created the earth?
BLESSINGS OF THIS:
The knowledge of these questions shall transform you. To know who is God is a welcome revelation. It will help you to know where to expect to meet God; by what means to see and hear him. And how you can relate with him.
It will give you the confidence that he is existing and of course a rewarder of those that diligently seek him.
The answer will settle many of the questions that have been instinctively disturbing your heart unanswered. But now made known to you by the revelation God has given to me in the knowledge of their mysteries.
Let us now go to the Holy Bible and what it has to say about “who is God”?
In John 4:24, God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.
There is no doubt that this calls for revelation, and salvation to your spirit man dead in sin to perceive God in worship; for God is a spirit.
Yes, he is a spirit personality; but where was he before he created the earth?
And the Bible said that he was “In the beginning”. In Genesis 1:1-2 “IN THE BEGINNING God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”.
“IN THE BEGINNING”
The question is, what is this “In the beginning”? This is the sphere of emptiness (void) divided into two regions namely a region of light upwards and a region of darkness downwards.
The Bible says that God dwells in the light region which no man can approach unto whom no man hath seen nor can see to whom be honour and power in everlasting. Amen (1 Tim 6:16).
And so, in the region of light are other elements such as eternal life; peace, righteousness; joy, love goodness, majesty honour etc. these make up the atmosphere of “In the Beginning”
This is where God lives and where he was before he created the earth. This is an eyewitness account of ‘wisdom’ who was with God in the beginning before he created the earth.
“The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his way before his works of old.
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was” Proverbs 8:22-23.
But the downwards region of darkness is such atmospheric elements of eternal death, unrighteousness, confusion, sadness, hatred, wickedness, shame, dishonoured etc.
HOW DID GOD COME INTO THIS SPHERE OF LIGHT CALLED IN THE BEGINNING?
Well, He just appeared from nowhere into the beginning like Melchisedec, the king of Salen (peace) who just appeared into the earth to meet Abraham; without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life,
But made like unto the son of God, abideth a priest continually. (Heb 7:1-3).
This ends your quest from where God comes and who he is. He is a spirit. We can only know him as much as he revealed himself to us through the pages of the Holy Bible. The Bible said in Romans 1:20 that God did not leave us without knowledge of his power and Godhead so that we shall not have any excuse. (Rom 1:20)
If the Bible could not tell us how Melchisedec came into this world; his father or mother or his relation; then we should be satisfied with the Bible type of God’s origin in Melchisedec. He just appeared. That makes him great, fearful, terrible and wonderful.
IN CASE YOU ARE TROUBLED ABOUT “IN THE BEGINNING”?
You don’t need to be troubled. In the beginning is just the same as the 3rd heaven (2 Cor 12:2), the same is also called Heaven of Heavens (Dent 10:14; 1 King 8:27; or paradise (2 Cor 12:4, Rev 2:7).
This region of light in the beginning also called 3rd heaven where God dwells and from where he created the earth is not created like the 1st heaven and 2nd heaven which shall be dissolved one day by the power of God (Rev 20:11; 2 Peter 3:10-13)
Then the new heaven and earth which is spiritual and undissolvable shall appear and remains forever so is the 3rd heaven in the beginning.
