ALL(t) as ongoing creator

My top-ranked deity is ALL which I define as all/everything
or all as a unit or by saying "Is there anything outside ALL? No.".

Obviously if anyone is all powerful ALL is, though you
could argue that just as we do not have access to the
nuclear energy in our bodies ALL might not have access
to all the energy in its body. Also all powerful does
not necessarily mean infinitely powerful and I think
certainly does not mean infinite energy density.

Also I have argued that ALL is the creator by saying
that ALL(t) creates ALL(t+Delta t) where Delta t is
a small time increment; so there is ongoing creation.

But the problem with that is that I define the universe
as spacetime and its contents and say that the universe
is a subset of ALL. Thus time is a subset of ALL and
it doesn't make sense to say ALL(t).

Can any of you see a way for me to repose my creation argument?
