God’s existence, prior to His speaking creation into reality, doesn’t mean some form of physical time, space or matter existed along side Him. God created all time, space and matter simultaneously. If time, space and matter were present, by stating that time, space or matter had to exist prior to God speaking everything in to existenc, it as places God on some equal footing with elements of His creation.
God existed before anything; therefore, time, space and matter did not exist prior to God speaking them in to existence. Thus, God cannot be included in how man contemplates God’s creation. We should ask, “which came first, God or times, space and matter?”
