How was God created?

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

God is the beginning and the end.  Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the alphabet.  Jesus is saying here that he is the beginning and the end.  Who always IS, always WAS and always WILL BE.

The term “I AM” does not mean I WAS or I WILL BE or I CAME FROM or I WAS BORN IN, but it communicates a state of sameness and consistency. . .I HAVE ALWAYS BE. While that sounds like bad grammar, it means at any time in history, God was in the present tense.

When He addressed Moses, Moses wanted his credentials.

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 also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation. Exodus 3:14-15

Everything in our world must have a beginning. However, if God had a beginning, then we must answer the question who created God and who created the God that created God, etc. The question would have eternal answers.

God always existed. Naturally we want to know what He was doing before time began and the question causes our mind to fry. It’s too much to think about time before time in our time-obsessed world.
