If God is, he must needs have subsisted of all Eternity, without any beginning. For, who should have given him his being? He could not have created himself, nor be made out of nothing, without any cause, and no first, or Superior cause can challenge the Creation of him, for there is nothing before, or superior to God.

And if he hath existed from all Eternity, he is then infinite, in respect of his duration. And if he hath an infinite duration, his Power is also infinite; and if he is infinitely Powerful, this World, which (though very great) is notwithstanding finite, and is not so great, but that it can have been made, or created by him, or ruled and Governed by an infinite Power, such as his is.

For the reference, see Louis Cappel on God’s aseity and infinity.
