Where did God come from? Who created Him? What’s His origin? Who is the master mind behind Him? It’s a question most people ask at one time or another. Here’s the answer. In Exodus 6:3, God said to Moses, “I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name, LORD, (JEHOVAH) I did not make Myself known to them.” JEHOVAH means self-existent One or “the existing One.” God explained to Moses that He is “I AM WHO I AM.” What does that mean? Scholar Charles Ryrie explains. “It is a name of the relationship between the true God and His people and when used, emphasizes God’s holiness, hatred of sin, and love of sinners.”* God didn’t “come from.” He IS. As amazing as it is, God is self-existing LORD who is holy, hates sin, and loves us. We can’t fully comprehend until we get to heaven. Until then, lift your hands and praise Him!
Lord God, JEHOVAH, we praise You and thank You that You love us and have provided salvation for us!
