We Say in the Beginning

Updated on February 10, 2019

In the beginning God created the world?

The Bible states that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and at the end it forecast the end of the world in a scary way, there are reasons to believe that both might not be correct.

Talking about beginnings and the Bible

Welcome to our article (78), we say in the beginning

May God help me say the right things in this article?

Dear readers, we are writing this article called, we say in the beginning, because we want to explain that when we talk about eternal things that there is no beginning, and there is no end, because they are eternal.

Now, we want to point out that eternal things never end, it is like our spiritual world that we are writing about is eternal, since it forms a life cycle, which can go on forever. This may sound like we are telling you a simple view or story, but we are serious.

You see, this article is being written to show that everything in the universe is linked together, above all those things that are eternal, like God and the spiritual universe, therefore, they have no beginning and there is no end for them.

You see, whenever we want to tell a story, we want to start telling you that story from the very beginning, since it makes the story sound real, even the most important religious book the Bible, starts with the phrase in the beginning; but that is a way to start telling people what happened next, because the reality is that there are things that have no beginning and there is no end. Like when we talk about God or time, because they are eternal, they don’t begin or end.

Dear readers, we are writing this article, to connect our religious articles that we have written so far; we need to explain that it is necessary to connect them, in such a way that they form a full circle and return from where they have started, and thus a cycle that never ends is formed; so, there is no beginning and there is no end, because we are talking about God and eternal things.

Now as you know, our religious articles talk about eternal things, since we are talking about God, so, they are eternal, and therefore there is no real beginning, and therefore there could not be an end either.

We have always used these phrases, when we begin a story; to prove my point I am going to quote from the Bible the very first phrase, (Quote from the Jerusalem Bible, Genesis 1, 1) “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” This is how the Bible starts explaining the beginning of life on the planet earth, at the same time there is no explanation of how God came into being, so, the beginning of God and time is left open to the interpretation of the readers, to think that God is immortal eternal and omnipotent.

Today these religious beliefs written in the Bible are under scrutiny, from the atheist, who believe that there is no God. But let us not jump to conclusions or change the subject. We believe that God exists, since God represents all existing life that we know of, and God is eternal and has no beginning and no end.

--------------------------------------------

God and time are eternal

We have reason to believe that God and time are eternal, because God and time need to be eternal for all those things that we know exist? We believe that there are at least three things that must be eternal: The universe is eternal, God is eternal, and time is eternal. Now these three eternal things, may have changed during a long period of time, but the fact remains that they are eternal, as they have been there and will be there forever.

Therefore, today if we start looking for the beginning of how God came into being, and the beginning of time, we must say that these two things are together, to form a logic explanation, because it is the only explanation possible and the universe is eternal.

This way of seeing God, the universe and time as eternal, may not please everybody, especially the religious people that believe everything that is written in the Bible, and what their religious leaders have told them.

But then, we should ask ourselves how else could it be? You see by logic reasoning everybody can accept, that everything was there in the beginning, and God was part of the entire universe. Then another explanation is that God is the universe and everything that exists in it; if we think that God is the entire universe, then God can create anything he wants by modifying what is in the universe. This way of seeing God as being everything, may eliminate the argument that we have today between creation and evolution, as both can be achieved from the living God of the universe, because God is everything and has been there all the time, so, there is no beginning for God, the universe and time.

---------------------------

Looking for the beginning of time?

We dream that one day we might be able to travel to the beginning of time to see how it all started. But the realty here is that perhaps time has never had a beginning at all, because it is eternal and therefore it has been there all the time?

In the beginning we say

As we have pointed out already, we say in the beginning when we want to tell a story, and even the Bible starts with the phrase in the beginning, which is one of the best ways to start telling the story like the Bible, but what about the end of this great sacred book, which is the most read religious book in the entire world. At the end of it, in revelations, sometimes called apocalypse, it forecasts the end of the world in such a dramatic way that it becomes scary, if we believe that these revelations are going to happen, the way it says in the Bible, then in this religious book, we have a beginning and an end.

Anyhow, we believe that what is written in the Bible is not going to happen, because it was written to scare people, to make them follow religious leaders of those times; those were very hard and scary times, and that is the reason why they have been written that way.

I hope we have proven our point of view, about the beginning of the Bible and the end of it; they are stories that they are telling us, so that we follow religions their ways, whether it is the Bible, the Koran or other religious books, it does not really matter. Anyhow, we want to make our point, that there are things that never begin and will never end, but most times we assume that everything has a beginning, and everything has an end.

Therefore, because we are talking about God, the universe, time and other eternal things; we know the universe is eternal, and whatever is in the universe is also eternal, since we believe that it has been there all the time. Therefore, there is no beginning and there will be no end about God, the universe and time.

When we observe closely, we must conclude that time has always been there, and this never ending time has been divided in smaller pieces, we have divided time in small pieces, because we can describe better what is happening at a certain time; we are saying this to explain that measuring time is a human invention, but time has no beginning, because time has always been there, and it moves forward in a never ending motion; most people believe that time moves in a straight line, but we must consider that time can also travel in a circle, orbit or spiral, but it never comes back to the same starting point, so, time is eternal like the universe is eternal. This includes all the things that can be seen and those things that cannot be seen in the universe.

To achieve this description of time, we use our own point of view, from where we happen to be standing, at that point of time. Then, we can go backward and talk about the past, or we can go forward and talk about the future.

To do this, we have set in place many rules how to measure time, and we work from there. Here on earth the time has been divided in many ways, and the average person usually refer to time in seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years and several years together; but time has no beginning and there is no end, because time itself can never end, it is only our human description that makes time to begin and end, so, why we started measuring time we could ask.

The famous time keeper big ben

Famous time keeper Big Ben, today it seems to us a very old time keeper, but if we look and compare the eternal time, it is only a new devise that we human have invented to measure time as we understand it.

Why we started measuring time

We believe that in the beginning, once humanity reached a certain mental awareness, we started to think, and observed that there was night and days, and this was the first division of time, then there was the moon and the seasons, they needed to be explained and many other things, so, we slowly worked out how to measure time our own ways.

Dear readers, at this point of time, I suppose you are going to ask me next, where did I learn all this stuff that I am talking about? The answer to that, is that nobody has purposely thought me this stuff; I have learned some of it at school, but most of it I have learned by reading books and observing everything at the University of Life, which everybody goes without knowing it; but as you know some of us learn from life, because they want to learn from life, and some of us are so careless, you can try to tell them many time things what they ought to know; but they will not listen to you, even if what you are trying to tell them, one day may save their lives.

Anyhow, from life I have learned many things that I think are worth sharing, and sharing is one of the reasons, why I am writing these articles here. Whether the learned people of the world agree with me or not that is going to be a different story, we must wait and see if there is a reaction from them; but very likely they will ignore these articles that I am writing.

------------------------------------

Readers Please Note

This article is our religious article number 78, because this is how many religious articles, we have written in Hub Pages, but this is not its real number, because it can also be article number 1, since this article not only can be the end of our religious writing, but also the beginning of them, since everything is there forever and everything goes around in circles, as we are writing in our next article, everything is rolling over. You see, here we are trying to link all our religious articles, in a way that they form a recycling circle, where everything can be reused again, which is the way that makes everything last forever.

We may have to write a few more articles in this last part of our religious writings, but they will all try to link everything together, because that is what we haven’t been able to state clearly, in our previous parts, one of these articles is the following article, Everything is rolling over, there we are describing how everything is rolling over in the universe, therefore, also the spiritual life forces of the universe must be rolling over, or recycling in order to exist forever. We will write other articles to show a few more religious things, but most of our important religious writings have been written, even if they need to be edited, to make them easier for people to understand them, but now let us go back to talk about the never-ending time, to complete our statement.

When we talk about the never-ending time, it depends from where we happen to be at that time, and whether we are looking at the past or forward to the future. Here I need to say that now, I am looking at the future, and I see that we may well be at the beginning of a new Era. Again, here I need to say that this beginning of a new Era, it has been perceived from my own starting point of view, but there is no real beginning or end, of this new Era. So, let us talk about this beginning.

--------------------------------------

The beginning of a new Era

We come from the past, we are living at this present  time here and now; and we are waiting for the beginning of a new Era, that is according to our present view point where we are standing now, this new Era could be religious and otherwise.

This could well be how the future will be according to science fiction, they may indeed be right, because everything starts from an idea and then we humans make it happen, so we should aspect changes, also religious things will change,

The beginning of a new Era

How I see the beginning of a new Era, is this. When we look at the world today, we see that many things are changing, they are changing a lot faster than they used to change; out with the old and in with the new, seems to be the trend, so, we can say that the beginning of a new Era has begun, or from these changes a new world order can emerge, we hope that this new world order comes with something, that will make the religious terrorist people redundant, because they cannot use religions, to back up their horrible terrorist activities. We pray God that this new world order happens soon. For this reason, we want to plan what to do, when this new world order happens, because I feel that we don’t know yet what to do, but we are working on it.

Anyhow, when there are changes, we need to be ready to embrace them, otherwise we can be left behind, therefore, it is wiser to get started right away, and do what needs to be done. Many of us have our own role to play, so, every one of us will do what is our usual part and try to stay ahead of the others, if it is possible for us to achieve that.

In this case, because I have been writing lately about religious issues, I am going to continue to write about them, with this new view in mind. The rest of the community can write about whatever they want, they can plan the political and the humanitarian side of these changes and everything else, if they want.

So, now let me go back to my own religious articles and see what I need to do, to link them with what is happening around us today, but at the same time let me clarify this issue that is on my mind, since we are talking about a new world order and the beginning of a new Era; therefore, let us talk about the beginning of something new, how all this stands with my own theory of time and everything else. Because we say that, there is no beginning and no end of those eternal things, therefore, the beginning of a new Era is only part of the eternal time, as it is only a description of part of the eternal time, the way that we see these things.

I believe that I have been able to link a bit better our religious articles and I will continue to link them with our next article, everything is rolling over, see you soon.

May God bless us all?
