I know this question might sound stupid, but was He here before He made like the universe and earth? And if not, what was here? Or if he was, then what was here? Just an abyss? Like was everything just white? Or black? I’ve always wondered this. There had to be SOMETHING here before we were all created. Btw, I do believe in God, so I’m not questioning Him or his existence. Again, sorry if this question sounds dumb. :/
Not at dumb question at all. Everyone of us thinks of it. The Bible says, though, that God always was… The idea of creation is ours because we were created. We don’t understand forever in our minds. Our minds have been created. They are marvelous in helping us on this earth, but they don’t understand ":forever.":
The gospel of John would be a great book in the Bible to read about it. All of your questions are answered right in the first chapter. Jesus is the Word of God and John says that Jesus always was. God always was. God is the creator. Imagine what heaven must be like and all the beings that God has created and will create when you and I live with Him forever in heaven.
God has no time constraints. He exists outside of the line of time.
May God bless you always.
Not dumb at all. God is the Alpha and Omega as the scriptures lay it out. Yes God has always existed and always will exist. Even before He made the universe and earth.
The title вЂњthe Alpha and the OmegaвЂќ carries the same thought as вЂњthe first and the lastвЂќ and вЂњthe beginning and the endвЂќ when these terms are used with reference to Jehovah. Before him there was no Almighty God, and there will be none after him. He will bring to a successful conclusion the issue over Godship, forever vindicated as the one and only Almighty God.вЂ”Isa 44:6: ":вЂњThis is what Jehovah has said, the King of Israel and the Repurchaser of him, Jehovah of armies, вЂI am the first and I am the last, and besides me there is no God.": Did you know God’s name is Jehovah? It’s a name he gave himself. It’s originally in the scriptures over 7,000 times!

What Was Here Before Earth
Actually, there was absolutely NOTHING. It’s a hard concept to grasp. But other than God, there was nothing, as in nothing existed. Not even time itself. The universe and time were created together. Of course, God is not tied to time, so He can do that. Therefore, it’s technically wrong to even say that there was nothing BEFORE the universe, because there was no time, and you need time to say something happened before.
So the universe and time were created together, meaning that THAT is when it went from nothing to something. But God was there throughout all of it.
I hope that helped. I know it’s extremely confusing :/
Yes &: No…
Maybe &: Sometimes…
God is all things (even dirty socks) and God is the Alpha &: the Omega, The Nexus One of Awl There Is, and he was suspended yet not in a void without a time, in a time without a name, in a town without a sound…
…in a heavy downpour, ya’ know he cast his own shadow by the backstage door, and like a trip to the past, to that day in the rain, he saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day he bought a beat up six-string from a second-hand store, didn’t know how to play it, but he knew for sure that one guitar slung way down low was a one-way ticket, only one way to go, so God started rockin, and he’s never gonna stop, he’s gotta’ keep on rockin’, some day he’s gonna make it to the top, cuz God’s a Jukebox Hero, Amen.
God has no beginning and no end so yes He has always been here. God has a heaven. Genesis 1:1 declares that God made the universe and earth from nothing. That is why He is the Creator.
ALLAH Ш§Щ„Щ„Щ‡ or the GOD was the creature of everything so how he wasn’t there when the universe and earth HE made everything u could imagine things u never known about it He knows it ,I’m Muslim and there is a verse or prodigy ( part ) in the Quran means : say if there a sea for ALLAH words ,the sea ends but ALLAH words doesn’t end and make the seas maultiples …mean that ALLAH know everything we know and we don’t know ,BTW this is not a stupid Q
Its a very good question…and its something that is very hard to ‘ get our head around":
Yes! God has ALWAYS existed…
and the very first thing he created was Jesus…
(Proverbs 8:22-31) вЂњJehovah himself produced me as the beginning of his way, the earliest of his achievements of long ago. 23В From time indefinite I was installed, from the start, from times earlier than the earth. 24В When there were no watery deeps I was brought forth as with labor pains, when there were no springs heavily charged with water. 25В Before the mountains themselves had been settled down, ahead of the hills, I was brought forth as with labor pains, 26В when as yet he had not made the earth and the open spaces and the first part of the dust masses of the productive land. 27В When he prepared the heavens I was there: when he decreed a circle upon the face of the watery deep, 28В when he made firm the cloud masses above, when he caused the fountains of the watery deep to be strong, 29В when he set for the sea his decree that the waters themselves should not pass beyond his order, when he decreed the foundations of the earth, 30В then I came to be beside him as a master worker, and I came to be the one he was specially fond of day by day, I being glad before him all the time, 31В being glad at the productive land of his earth, and the things I was fond of were with the sons of men.
Jesus existed as a spiritual being BEFORE the universe, or even men,’
When men spread on the earth, they were dealt with by Jehovah God himself, not Jesus.
Jesus’ name in heaven was Michael
(Revelation 12:7-9) And war broke out in heaven: MiвЂІchaВ·el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8В but it did not prevail, neither was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9В So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth: he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.
(Revelation 12:12) On this account be glad, YOU heavens and YOU who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to YOU, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.вЂќ
Only Jesus/Michael , as the supreme angel, has the God given power to best Satan.
And ALL the demons, the angels who followed Satan, KNEW who Jesus was…
(Matthew 8:29) And, look! they screamed, saying: вЂњWhat have we to do with you, Son of God? Did you come here to torment us before the appointed time?вЂќ
They did NOT call Jesus, God or Almighty God….they called him…Son of God.
They had been in heaven and had SEEN AND KNOWN Jesus to be ALONGSIDE his Father Jehovah.
As far as I know, there isn’t anything to compare with what was around during a time where there was no time. From the Hebrew in the Old Testament, God existed in a time when there was no time, and created everything in time from outside of time, as I understand it.
Yes God was, is, and always has been there.
The Lord God says, ":I am the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of all things. I am the all-powerful One Who was and who is and who is to come.":
It may be hard to comprehend (it still is for me) but once we get to heaven we’ll understand a lot more.
