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?

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.
Eric I am puzzled by your reply, it seems suspect. The author knows his characters because He created them... When I perused Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis many moons ago I believe this is somewhat how he described God and it always made sense to me
Have you written a creative piece and been apart from the characters? Have you authored a writing and not been part of it? Could God have created mankind and not been part of him? Are you not the owner of what you create?
I agree with your last statement completely. I never said otherwise...
thank you, now I understand in what way it was meant. Being so cryptic is a little bit like saying "i'll just throw this out there without commitment". Good for you.
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.
You are right the presence in each of us has been called "spark of the divine". Your body was conceived in the womb, but God created you long before that. Your soul remembers everything, but you mind cannot remember your loving presence with God.
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.
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. ?????
Yes, very difficult indeed. Thank you for your answer.
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.
Sorry you didn't say who told us just that we are told
"We are told that God lives in Heaven"
Who do you say tells us that when we die we are in Heaven?
That is what I was taught in Sunday School, and a lot of people do say it. " He / She has gone to be with the Lord" and other such sayings....
