If God ceased to exist now (hypothetically speaking), the whole existence of heavens and earth (entire universe) would disappear right now (John 1:3). God exists from everlasting to everlasting (John 8:58; the eternal past to the eternal future). We exist because God exists (John 15:5-8). We work because God works (Genesis 2:15). When He created both the invisible and the visible (Colossians 1:16), there was the moment of a timeline which had started (Genesis 1:1). There was no “silent” moment for the eternal past (John 1:1, no definite article in Hebrew, “In [the] beginning”). It’s hard for us with a finite mind or as a finite being to understand it. The creation is the beginning of time in the eternal window of the existence of God (Genesis 1-2:2; God worked for six days to complete His creation and He rested one particular day to set aside from His work).
Obviously, we do not own anything nor created anything. We simply exist because God created and is sustaining all existence in heaven and on earth (Matthew 6:26). He maintains all elements necessary to exist at the utmost conditions (Romans 1:20). When those elements are taken away, the evildoers become furious and curse God the Creator (Revelation 16).
The following is a part of the Apostle Paul’s sermon on the Mars Hill:
“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things” Acts 17:24-25 NASB.
Hypothetically, if we were able to put a price tag on the planet sun, how much it could be? Let’s say, one quadrillion dollars per second as the sun flashes (a nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium). How much is the whole universe? It would be an astronomical number of price although nobody knows. God gives us everything free, doesn’t He? How about the price our Christ the Savior paid? It would be an infinite number (“google,” an unfathomable number) of the price. That price He paid for those who believe in Him through His death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins from the eternal separation from God. – T
