Who is God?

Updated: May 25, 2023

There are so many things I could start typing out for this question as its such a wide topic but the answer is quite simple.........God is a spiritual being, where space, time and matter does not exist as we know it.

We tend to put God in a box, we think he is very much like us and in some ways he must be for we were created in Gods image (Genesis 1:27). However, we forget that God created us in his spiritual image not an earthly image.

See God made all creation, Adam and Eve and the world we know today but it wasn't supposed to be this way. Genesis tells us how God did this but we must look at the words carefully and study the text in more depth.

Genesis 1:1-5

"1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day."

Now when we look at verse 2 the earth is unformed and void. When we look up the meanings of those 2 words we find that the earth is empty and has no shape, the spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the water, so there was water but no shape. Which indicates there must have been something there before in order for it to be this way. God then spoke "Let there be light" and there was light, God spoke and the actions of his words were alive and the light appeared, it was not created.

Genesis 1:26-28

"26 Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, in the likeness of ourselves; and let them rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the animals, and over all the earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the earth. 27 So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them: God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air and every living creature that crawls on the earth."

If God was not 3 in 1 why would the text say let us make humankind? Who else would God be talking to? So in essence if God was hovering over the surface, Holy Spirit and Jesus must have been with him. God says to make humankind in their image, their likeness and they will rule over the earth. God created male and female in his own image and when they were formed he blessed them to be fruitful.
