Who 'created' God?

Letter to the Editor:
GOD'S MESSAGE, June 2008, p.4

 I'M A FRESHMAN in college taking up a bachelor's degree. During our breaks, my classmates and I often engage in trivial  as well us intellectual discussions. Some questions  at times  enter our minds to  which no one among us, not even our professors, could give satisfactory and conclusive answers. So I want to hear from your religion, who created God?  Is it possible for us to explain everything about God? And what proof does the Bible offer that there exists a God?

Editor's reply:

      Concerning God, our Creator, the Book of Job in the Bible rhetorically asks, thus:

     “Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven-what can you do? Deeper than Sheol-what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and broader than the sea.” (Job 11:7-9, New King James Version)

     Though many deep things about God cannot be completely understood and explained by our finite mind, there are things about Him that we can comprehend as they were revealed through the Holy Scriptures:

     “The secret things belong to the Lord of God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deut. 29:29, Ibid.)

     Hence, through the Bible, we learn for instance that God is omnipotent or Almighty (Gen. 35:11), omniscient or knows everything (I John 3:20), omnipresent or is everywhere (Eph. 4:6; Jer. 23:23-24), His ways are just (Ezek. 18:25), and nothing is impossible with Him (Luke 1:37, New International Version).

     However, as to who created God and where He came from, the answer is no one and nowhere, for God is not a created being but is the Creator of all things (Isa. 64:4, 8; 45:18). God has no beginning and no end; He is eternal or everlasting:

     “Before you created the hills or brought the world into being, you were eternally God, and will be God forever.” (Ps. 90:2, Today’s English Version)

     The eternal God, the Creator of all things, is the Father, as taught in the Old Testament (Mal. 2:10, NIV) and the New Testament (John 17:1, 3, NKJV).

     The one true God is spirit (John 4:24), that is, without flesh and bones (Luke 24:38-39) and thus, is invisible by nature (I Tim. 1:17). Yet, we know and believe that God exists, as Apostle Paul pointed out:

     “Ever since God created the world, his invisible qualities, both his eternal power and his divine nature, have been clearly seen; they are perceived in the things that God has made. So those people have no excuse at all!” (Rom. 1:20, TEV)

     In the things that God has made among others, the heavens and the skies and everything in them (Ps. 19:1-4, NIV), the beasts, birds, and the fish (Job 12:7-9), and “the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind” (Job 12:10)-God’s existence, eternal power, and nature are “clearly seen”.
