When I was a child, one day in Sunday school we had to recite the Apostle’s creed - which starts “I believe in God the father Almighty”, individually. When it got to my turn, I just could not remember the words. The other children had to prompt me every step of the way as to what came next.
I am sure those present will remember the incident, because for several weeks, I was reminded that I did not know the Apostle’s creed, which the congregation had to repeat in church every Sunday. The reason for mentioning this incident in this forum of “Who is God and where did He come from”, is , that people tend to get all philosophical when explaining the existence of God.
I have had several experiences with the supernatural throughout my life. There is a scripture in the bible which states –“ In my father’s house are many mansions’.
At a young age I relocated from Springfield in Clarendon Jamaica, to Race Course. At the time we moved we had a house in Race Course, rented to teachers. I remember the house had no indoor bathroom, but there were bathroom facilities not attached to the house. In order to build the new house, the old house was torn down.
I was taken back to this property by a “spirit”. The spirit told me that by keeping the old house, and building a new house on the property, we could have generated more income. The new house had a maid’s room attached to the back of the house. The spirit showed me how instead building a new house with a maid’s room, the new three-bedroom house could have easily been built as a four, five, or six bedroom house. He further stressed that instead of tearing the old house to build another house, how successive generations could keep adding to the present structure.
p.s.:(I also remember that there was a rule, that one could add to house in a particular direction). I cannot remember which one.
He showed me how the acre of land could have been divided into four sections, with each section bearing fruits in the different seasons. The spirit was talking about trees that could bear many fruits at one time. I remember we had drums to collect water that actually burst because they got too full of water. However, the spirit showed me how the water pressure in the house could have been increased by collecting the water in drums before going to the house, rather than connecting the water system directly to the community system.
We also had vegetables planted in elevated drums cut in half. The spirit showed me multiple drums where vegetables could be reaped and replanted as needed.
The question is "Who is God, and Where did He come from" - just asking. I believe that there are multiple gods.- choose which one you will worship.
