How did God come into existence?

First you have to decide if God exists. By lack of proof this is faith then you have to decide if God created the Earth and the stars.
Lets say He did. So he can't be alive because life needs a place to grow.
Is He the universe ? that makes sense but we are created in his image.
So He is like us ? Maybe or we are like him.
A holographic universe would be the simple answer...
How do we test it ? We do not. We can only speculate and try not to ask questions where nobody can give an answer to.

He is God, He is eternal, and He has always been. Has it occurred to you that nothing ever occurred to God? The past, present, and the future are all one. That’s why God knows the future. He is eternal and exists outside of time. If you exist without matter, that means you are immaterial which means you can’t be touched, seen, smelled, or tasted...you are not made of matter. If you exist without space that means you are omnipresent…you are everywhere, not bound by spatial restriction.
So something and we know this is a fact, because we know matter, time, and space were created and the only thing that can create matter, time, and space is something that exists without matter, time, and space. If it existed with matter, time, and space than matter, time, and space wouldn’t be created.
So, therefore, to exist without matter, time, and space means you are eternal, omnipresent, and immaterial which are the very traits of God. So something that is eternal (always existed), omnipresent (invisible, untouchable), and immaterial (everywhere) created matter, time, and space….well, what does that sound like to you?
So, God is not created. In order for everything to have been created, you need something that always existed. God always existed and he always will exist.

In Him (God ???) was LIFE,
and The LIFE was the LIGHT of Men.
50. Jesus said,
“If they say to you, “Where did you come from?”
say to them,
“We came from The Light,
the place where The Light
came into being
on Its own accord
and established Itself
and became manifest
through their Image.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?”
say, “We are its children,
and we are the elect
of The Living Father.”
If they ask you, “What is the sign of your Father in you?”
say to them, “It is Movement and Repose.”
To add more salt to the wound, if God created something then God is not infinite. Creating something means the existence of void that is filled after the creation. And if there was a void, which God filled by creating this universe, then God was not infinite.
