In the Beginning God Created the Heaven and the Earth (Genesis 1:1) KJV
Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound. The Bible begins with a clear, direct statement of where our universe came from: God. What the Bible doesn’t try to explain is where God Himself comes from. At the very start, scripture simply assumes His existence.
But read a few pages into the Bible, and you’ll find God’s explanation of His own being… kind of. Though it’s tough for the time-bound human mind to understand, God called Himself “I AM” in response to Moses’ question, “What is [Your] name?” (Exodus 3:13-14 KJV). Those two little words clearly imply existence, and, interestingly, always in the present tense. There was never a time that God wasn’t, and there will never be a time when He won’t be. God simply is.
Scientists and philosophers have debated the origins of the universe and everything in it – including people – for about as long as people have existed in the universe. But the Bible states clearly and simply that everything originated within God.
It takes faith to accept that. But it takes a lot more faith to disbelieve!
