A difficult question that people sometimes struggle with is this: What created God? If everything has a beginning or creator, then how did God come into existence? Who created Him? And if something (or someone) created God, what created it?
I think the most difficult part of this question is the fact that it is an illogical question. God created everything, and He is the only thing that was not created by something. Before the universe ever came to be, there was God. I love the part in Exodus where Moses asks God His name. God answers, my name is “I AM.” In other words, God is all that ever was. HE IS.
Since God simply “is,” asking what created God is like asking something like, “How much does the color blue weigh?” Or “What color is an inch?” Those questions make no sense to us because they are illogical. They are asking something that doesn’t make any sense. Blue is a color, while weight is a totally different characteristic of an object. And measurements don’t have colors. The same is true of asking what created God because God wasn’t created.
It all comes down to this simple fact: The universe as we know it didn’t always exist. God created the universe, and He created it using matter and energy. He created it within the context of time. So time, energy, matter, and everything else is a created thing. Every single atom, molecule, and particle was created by God, and not even a speck of dust in this universe moves without His permission.
Logic dictates that anything that had a beginning had a first cause, or creator. God is outside of time/matter/space/energy. He has always existed, therefore does not need to be created or have a first cause. He is not made of matter or space, etc. He is something completely different. But since the universe was created or had a definite beginning, it has to have a first cause.
We have a universe, and we know the universe had a point of creation. So we can logically ask, “What or who created the universe?” That is a valid question, because anything that has come into existence has a first cause, or creator.
So God was never created, and He is not bound by these constraints of time, matter, energy, or anything else. God simply “IS.” He always has been, and always will be. He wasn’t created, nor will He ever cease to exist. That is pretty powerful stuff, and mind boggling, isn’t it? But this also raises another interesting question: What’s God made of?
So What Substance is God Made Of?
Since all matter, time, and energy had a beginning, we can probably make the assumption that God is not made of Matter. He simply IS. The Bible describes God as a spirit.
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
Of course, God controls all matter, and He can take the form of matter (as He has done in the past in the incarnation of Jesus Christ), and manipulate it in any way He wants. However, God is not bound by matter, time, or space-like we humans and everything else in the universe is bound by God’s laws. The Bible also gives God characteristics, emotions, feelings, thoughts, and more.
