Q:

Where did God come from? Did God have a father and mother? My mommy said I ought to ask you, because you'd know the answer.


A:

Thank you for your question–and I hope you will always want to know more about God. God loves you and wants to help you and be your friend every day of your life.

God had no beginning (just as He will have no end); He has always existed, and He always will. (That’s why He had no father or mother.) I know that’s hard for us to understand, because everything we see around us had a beginning. Even the universe–the stars, the galaxies, even the atoms you can’t see that make up everything in the world–all had a beginning. But God had no beginning. The Bible says, “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:28).

And God also never changes or grows old. Have you ever noticed how everything around you changes? People and animals change and grow old; trees grow up and die; even rocks eventually weather and disintegrate. But God never changes; as the Bible says, “I the Lord do not change” (Malachi 3:6). This is one reason why you can depend on Him, because He’ll never change His mind or go back on His promises.

But the most important truth I can tell you about God is that He loves you, and He wants you to know Him and be His friend. How do I know this? I know it because God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to show us His love. And right now Jesus wants to come into your life and make you part of His family forever. Ask Him to come into your heart today–and He will.

    I enjoy your sermons on TBN. I am struggling with the spirit of fear. Please pray that I release this spirit from my life.

      Don’t be afraid my friend. You are loved.

    Oh how I adore God. The more I learn about Him, the more I love Him. So much is still such a beautiful mystery, and impossible for us to comprehend in our current state. However, we know enough to know that He is love. Creation was about love, and the cross of Calvary was about love. Love was His meaning, and love is the meaning of life. We’re here to love God and to love our neighbours as ourselves (in that order). Oh how grateful I am to our Lord and Saviour, and how I’m loving getting to know a little bit more about Him every day.

    If no one created God then there is such a thing as magic.

  7. Adrian says:

    I know GOD IS REAL, AND THAT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SINS. I KNOW THAT IT IS IN FACT, THAT IT IS MY JOB, MY GOAL TO ACCEPT CHRIST INTO MY LIFE AS MY LORD AND SAVIOR. THIS I HAVE, BUT THRU IT ALL, I NEED PRAYERS FOR A CLOSER WALK FOR MYSELF AND MY FAM, (CHILDREN AND HUSBAND). AMEN! IN JESUS NAME

  8. Adrian says:

    PRAY for me and my family.

    1. Katie says:

      I will Adrian. Is there anything specific you’d like me to pray? Or general prayer for God’s hand on your life, and protection and provision for your family? I’ll pray generally for now. Blessings to you.

    2. Jan funmaker says:

      I will pray for you to know God, Adrian. More and more.

    I had a child ask me this. My jaw dropped. I didn’t know how to answer.
