God
Came
From
Nowhere!
 
 
"Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually" (Hebrews 7:3).
 
"See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever" (Deuteronomy 32:39-40).
 
"Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he" (Is. 41:4).
 
According to Webster's Dictionary, nowhere is defined as not in, or at any place.  A place to pinpoint where God came from does not exist because He is by definition Infinite Being, the beginning and the ending of all things, the first and the last of all things. 
 
Consequently, we cannot find a place where God came from because He is greater than place.  He is the Divine Originator of all that is, thus there is no specific place that could contain Him since He is omnipresent: everywhere there is, at the same time. 
 
We cannot go to a place where God is not already there.  Everything that exists, exists within Him who is infinite knowledge, understanding, wisdom and creativity.  This is why nothing is too hard for the Lord, He cannot be asked to do a thing, and His answer comes back to us as impossible because He is Lord of the impossible. 
 
What seems to be impossible within the framework of our limited human ability and understanding is only the beginning of God's wisdom.  If we collected all the wisdom and knowledge of all mankind, and poured it into a soda pop bottle it would amount to a raindrop in comparison to God's Infinitude.
Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God (Is. 44:6).
 
What is difficult for scientists and geniuses to comprehend is simple arithmetic to God; a one plus one equals two kind of scenario. 
 
Therefore we find ourselves living in a world that God created, which is suspended in the universe of His creation, a world that is revolving around a sun that is 332,000 times greater than the earth in which we live.
 
Now, having said all that, who is it that would dare to challenge His right to rule what He has created.  He calls himself Lord of lords and King of kings, so that at whatever mortal heights we find ourselves to be, He is above and over that demarcation.
 
And then we have death to contend with, if we find ourselves high in the instep.  A brief visit to the nearest graveyard will put things into their proper perspective. 
 
We cannot keep ourselves alive, whereas God lives forever.  We all die eventually; the last and lfinal transformation from finite existence to infinity.  So we are confronted with a dilemma.  A God who lives forever opposed to man whose life and breath is in God's hands.  We breathe by His will.  We wake up in the morning by His will. 
This God who dwells in Eternity, beholding the folly of man whom He created to bless Him through our praises, this same God came from nowhere.  This nowhere God imparted aspects of Himself within his sons and daughters making us uniquely His, giving us gifts and talents to use for His honor and glory.  This nowhere God hears our thoughts afar off before they reach our own minds.  This nowhere God unfolds His majesty before us with the sun rising in the morning sky.  This nowhere God awakens us with the breath of His life gently urging us forward into a new day to capture, if we are bold, blessing that He lays at our feet.  This nowhere God beckons to us with an inexplicable love, like soft raindrops falling down upon our heads, washing away everything contrary to His love.
 
The giver of exquisite gifts is the God of all creation.  How then shall we lift ourselves up from the lifeless dust without His breath in us, and defy this living magnificent God, who is so resplendently adorned in His power and majesty that we cannot behold Him, because we are so undone before Him.  His presence is so holy and pure contrasted with our unrefined, sinful natures, that we can only communicate to Him from afar.  If we get too close to him, His holiness would relegate our flesh and bones into nonexistence.
 
God came from the city of Nowhere, a place that cannot be determined or located in the infinite universe, a city with infinite boundaries, extending way beyond our comprehension, beyond our finite minds, which are invested with minute particles of God's infinite intelligence. 
 
So what does man do with his raindrop intelligence?  Why he builds Towers of Babel, again, to reach the heavens; interplanerium* traversing, trying to find new habitations to sustain the death of life; we live in a perpetual state of death, dying bit by bit everyday until we find ourselves confronted by God's judgment on the other side of death.  One would think that given the alternative of either eternal damnation or eternal bliss, that sincere prayer to the God who came from nowhere, would always be on the top of the list of things to do today.
