    How did GOD became? He said, "I am the Alpha and Omega" but how?

    A question I have wanted to ask since forever yet hadn't been satisfied with the answer given. As an adult, I feel like I shouldn't need logic regarding my belief. Isn't faith believing without seeing? Yet, I know there is an answer, I just didn't know it.

    When something couldn't be explained like why the sun sets, the human mind created something to explain it.

    God did not, became, but he becomes.  He that approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him. (Hebrews 11:6)

    Christian worship pivots around eternity, for our God is himself eternal. God is King of eternity, incorruptible, invisible, the only God; he deserves honor and glory forever and ever. 1 Timothy 1:17 

    For humans, that may be hard to conceive—God never having a beginning.  On the other hand the entire universe whose age is estimated as 13 billion years old did have a beginning.  They called it a big bang, but I prefer to call it creation. God was already there in the beginning (when) God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

    God’s eternity also extends into the future.  God will never die; hence, that Jehovah will reign for all eternity to come the psalmist proclaimed:

          “Jehovah is King to time indefinite, even forever.” (Psalm 10:16)

    Now listen very carefully and the answer is in the Alpha and Omega. The beginning and ending also the first and the last. GOD have always existed and will always exist. GOD is invisible and visible at the same time which is manifested to you always and the principles of the visible which exist from the foundation of the invisible along with the invisible that science investigate to understand how everything works out in an orderly fashion whether that might be in chaos or orderly fashion that comes out of chaos in the universe with the unseen such as black holes and dark matter or the seen such as the sun, stars, moon, planets, comets, etc... Other than this and you will have to wait until you die and crossover to the other side of death for a more detail and understanding of: How did GOD became?

    The words alpha and omega are from the Greek language. They denote the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet (as in alpha+beta: the second letter of the Greek alphabet). The ancient Greeks also used them to describe the eternal omnipresence of their god Zeus.

    Believe me: there is nothing in the Bible that is original.

    Now mark me down for telling the TRUTH.

    "As man now is, God once was.  As God now is, man may become."  God is glorified and has worked out his salvation.  Through his triumph he partakes of eternal life and joy which is the perpetuation of the lives with eternal spirit posterity.  That spirit posterity (us) now matures in hopes that we may work out our salvation and share in everlasting joy as He does in raising up endless posterity.  This is the design of our being because it is His design.

    In the beginning, before even time began, there was only God and Nothing.

    For God to know God was not enough. God wanted to experience his supreme Godhead, infinite goodness and his supreme power..

    To experience the full extent of Goodness one must also experience evil. To experience hot you also need to experience cold otherwise hot is meaningless. In other words you must also experience both ends of the spectrum to have the full experience.

    However, the Almighty God ran into a problem. He had to un-god God to experience evil, weakness, sickness, misunderstanding, diseases and so on. Since God cannot un-god God. He came up with a brilliant plan.

    He created the spiritual and physical universe. He also created Man. He allowed evil to exists and made Man imperfect, so that Man and experience both good, evil, disease, weakness, jealousy, anger, and so forth.

    Now God feels everything including what Man feels. In this way, God can experience everything including his Supreme Goodness and Power through his creations which includes Man. So both God and Man is on a holy mission on God's great plan.

    Now no one needs nothing to make anything. You can only make something out of something else. So God created everything with himself. He became every atom, photon, energy, and every thing else. He is the Great Seen and Unseen. He is Everything there ever was, is, and will be forever and ever. There is nothing else. In a sense, he is even not what he is. Even evil cannot exist without God.  To the Greeks everything can be represented by the term "Alpha and Omega". Actually it should be the Alpha and Omega and all in between. This meaning was lost in translation. Therefore God is everything in other words the "Alpha and Omega".

    god became because some people wanted to be leaders and control the masses. they invented the concept of one god and used their education and ability to read and write as a tool to strengthen their ideas.

    I appreciate your question very much.
    Growing up I was full of faith and I had no clue why or how. Raised by a single mom who was happy to bring me to church, I think mostly to impress the neighbors, was far from driven to do so.
    I just loved the concept of an All Mighty who had all the answers, who I could hand off my troubles to and that I could lean on in the quiet musings of my mind ( kind of like the ideal parent ?).
    I believe faith is rooted in our instincts and that is what answers the "believing without seeing".   The COLLINS English dictionary has several definitions of instinct, I liked this one :     "inborn intuitive power".
    It seems to me it is more about feeling than knowing.
    Whatch'ya think of them apples ??  :0)

    God is the Alpha and Omega which means he is the beginning and the end.  There was nothing before him and there will be nothing after him because there is only eternity, which means there is no end.  No one on this entire earth could ever explain this to you except that you must have the faith to believe it.  God created the earth and everything that is in the earth.  There is no such thing as the "Big Bang Theory" as schools are trying to get our children to believe. God is in complete control over this earth.  Everything that happens on this earth is for a reason.

    Thank you, guys! Much appreciated.

    In the last 9 months, i have found the answer that i seek. I guess we all have a right to what we choose to believe in. Perhaps we do not have, to have all the answers, because it was written: Lean not onto your own understandings. For His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours..who are we to fathom the mind of God. Alas.. Too much theology than the faith that was asked of christians,no?
    But i do remember these.. In the beginning the Word; and the word was with God.

    PS: Jesus was the word that became flesh.
