Summary: The bible is the only book that tells us where we come from and where we're going. God loved us before we were born
Introduction: God is eternal and existed before He began the process of creation. Only God existed before verse one in your bibles. Imagine this, there was a time when God existed apart from the existence of all else. Note; the bible reads “in the beginning GOD.” Let’s observe the key points in Genesis Chapter 1.
• He that began the beginning must’ve existed before the beginning.
• It is improper to inquire concerning God’s age, He is ageless.
• God is the only ONE who could reveal what happened in creation.
• He that existed before the beginning must be eternal.
• The angels are older than men but not eternal in the sense that God is.
• Men and angels are eternal with a beginning but God is eternal without a beginning.
• God has verbal authority over all of creation.
• Physically man and the earth are the same age. (He was created from the earth)
• Physically man is older than woman.
• There was light before God spoke light into existence because He is the ultimate light.
Science is a result of Divine creation:
(Observe the 5 properties of science)

III. HE DECREED A REMEDY BEFORE THE FALL TO THE GLORY OF HIS NAME. (Prov. 16:33) (Eph. 1:4) (1 Pet. 1:18-20)
V. HE WAS INSCRIPTING THE LAMB BOOK OF LIFE WITH THE NAMES OF THE SAVED. (Rev. 17:8) (Rev. 21:27)
VI. HE WAS PREPARING TO REVEAL THE MESSIANIC COMMUNITY. (Eph. 3:9-11) (Eph. 2:10-27)

Conclusion: The thing that happened before creation will never happen after the beginning consummates because we will be there eternally with the LORD and His ANGELS! It will never again be God alone or God and the angelic host; it will always include the saved of the human race too! Hallelujah to His name!!
