In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth........?


This first scripture confuses me a bit. We are told that God lives in Heaven, and that he has always existed. No beginning, no end. So, where did he reside before he created the heavens?

    I do agree God does reside in us and everything that he has created we all possess "spark of the divine" which he instills in us from the moment we conceived in the womb. So therefore, we can look inside ourselves to find him.

    I think that saying "it is simply a matter of faith" is kind of bunk. I do not worry one spittle due to my faith, I am given what I can handle due to my faith. But I do not and will not stop thinking because of my faith, as Christ did not.

    then he did not live his story inside of him. And he cannot know us characters.

    An author -- as here in hub pages who does not live her writing is and advertising hack. I can smell it. Like with this comment. Not sincere. Words on paper but no more.

    Some of us claim to have seen or have intimate knowledge of that locale, which I am very fond of calling heaven. I have been in such states that the ballistics of a human body are irrelevant. xanzacow brings us head on with a definition. ?????

    I did not say that the Bible says that God lives in Heaven. I said this is what we are told. When someone dies they are said to be in Heaven with God. So this implies that He is in Heaven: that heaven is an actual place. I am not limiting God at all.
