This is a question that is a part of the omnipotent paradox, which is a series of questions that misunderstand the meaning of God being all-powerful.
The skeptic that poses this question will say that if God can destroy Himself, then He isn’t all-powerful because He can be destroyed, but if God cannot destroy Himself, then his power is limited.
So what is the answer to this question? By definition, God cannot be created or destroyed. This is because God is not made of matter, like the rest of us are. So the idea of God being able to destroy Himself really is illogical.
God is immaterial, so there is no way for Him to destroy Himself, because that would be logically contradictory.
So does this make God not all-powerful? Sure, God can’t do the logically impossible, such as Him destroying Himself, but He still can do anything that is logically possible, and that makes Him all-powerful because He can do all possible things.
