CHAPTER 3 – With What and Where Did God Toil BEFORE Time, Creation, and History Began?

John 1:1-2 IN THE beginning [before all time] {in eternity} was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit}, and the Word {God the Son} was God Himself. [Isa 9:6.] 2 He was present originally with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit – the Trinity in eternity}. AMP

God lived BEFORE time, creation, and history began, what facilities did He have available to Him?:
His Book of Life which contained God the Father’s plans {concepts} for His ENTIRE creation but especially involving man written from BEFORE time began.
Psalms 139:16 {King David speaking to God} Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them. AMP
I MUST ask you to try to envision the magnitude and intricacy of His Book of Life in its completeness and fullness of detail for His total creation of the universe. The entire universe has different kinds of life scattered throughout – angels, human life, life/light/energy in the stars, black holes, space, etc. Because of the sheer size and contents of this Book, it is impossible to change anything! This is why God cannot change!
Malachi 3:6a For I am the Lord, I do not change;……AMP
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages). AMP

His Kingdom was originally contained in the third heaven:
2 Corinthians 12:2 {Paul speaking} I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago — whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows — was caught up to the third heaven. AMP
1 Kings 8:27 But will God indeed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, the heavens and heaven of heavens [in its most extended compass{/range}] cannot contain You; how much less this house that I have built? AMP

The Thrones for the Father and the Son are contained in the third heaven:
Psalms 110:1 THE LORD (God) says to my Lord (the Messiah), Sit at My right hand, until I make Your adversaries Your footstool. [Matt 26:64; Acts 2:34; 1 Cor 15:25; Col 3:1; Heb 12:2.] AMP

  1. Eternity –An unending era from BEFORE time began to beyond the end of time:
    Genesis 1:2-3 The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep {eternity}. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. AMP
    Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One — He Who inhabits eternity {Can God be contained by eternity? NO!!!}, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin]. [Matt 5:3.] AMP
