QUESTION: How Old Is God?

How Old is God: Everlasting

One Question that many people are asking is “How Old is God?”

If you ask different people this question, you will probably get multiple different (and conflicting) answers — However we can find the answer to this question directly in the Bible.

(Psalms 93:2 KJV)  “Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.”

From this passage we can see that God has existed since “Everlasting” — meaning that he has always existed. There was never a time that he did not exist.

How Old is God: In the Beginning

(Genesis 1:1 KJV)  “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Here we can see that in the Beginning [of Everything], God created the Heavens (Universe) and the Earth. Therefore if God created all of these things in the beginning — there is no other logical explanation apart from the fact that he was already there to create everything.

In addition to this passage, we find:

(Revelation 21:6 KJV)  “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”

This passage clearly tells us not only that God has no “Beginning”, but it tells us that God himself is the Beginning.

The ‘Ancient’ of Days

Another interesting thing to note is that in the Book of Daniel, GOD is referred to by the Prophet as the Ancient of Days — signifying that although he doesn’t have a numerical age (unlike his creations), by every standard he is by far the oldest and most powerful being in the Universe, even older than TIME itself.

(Daniel 7:9 KJV)  “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.”

Now this is an extremely interesting and telling passage in that while the Prophet Daniel was having this vision — he described God has having clothes that were white as snow and hair like ‘Pure Wool’.

white-hairNow when you consider this in the natural, As people increase in age, their hair usually loses its pigment and turns ‘Silver’ or ‘White’.

However this is usually an extremely slow process that happens over the course of many years. In fact it may take 10 years just for 25% of a person’s hair to turn white.

Now compare this to Daniel’s description of God’s hair. Daniel calls it ‘Pure as Wool’

This could imply that every single strand of God’s hair is pure white.

However this does not mean that his hair is ‘Decaying’ as ours do, Instead it could just be a symbolic representation that God is indeed the ‘Ancient of Days’.

Age of God: How can God Not have a Beginning?

This is another question that I often get.

“If GOD created us, then who created God?”

I often prefer to answer this question with the following analogy:

Imagine that all of existence is encompassed by a giant BOOK.

  • Galaxies are nothing more that chapters.
  • Planets are nothing more than pages.
  • People are nothing more than words on the page.

If you flip to page 2,000 and ask yourself …
“What came before it?” — you will be taken to page 1,999.

If you continue this process you will continue going back until your reach the front cover of the book.

But operating under the premise that the book alone encompasses ALL OF LIFE and REALITY — What is the beginning of The Book Cover?

Answer: There is None.

Likewise, GOD is the “Book Cover” of all Life.

Yes, All things must have a beginning — EXCEPT “The beginning”.
Yes, All things must have an END — EXCEPT “The End”

(Revelation 21:6 KJV) “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”
