Einstein, String Theory, Quantum Physics and God

In the past 100 years because of questions asked and answered by physicists, the nature of reality has changed both in theory and in practice. The simple notions we have of life on earth do not work well in the outer reaches of space.

The universe is really quite small

It is almost impossible to think of this enormous universe as being confined in a small space, but it is. Where there is time there is also an end of time, hence an end of space as well. In fact, to God the entire universe may appear no larger than a steamer trunk.

The deceptive nature of space allows us to think we are isolated from God and He is disconnected or unconcerned.  And yet, He said to seven plus billion people on our planet, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” That is an intimate statement. If you throw in our guardian angels, we don’t have a minute alone on this planet.

Science needs to catch up to the Bible

In Brian Greene’s book, The Fabric of the Cosmos intended for non-scientific readers, his first chapter is a clear outline of the issues facing science today as the result of these investigations. (1) common reality and the new reality do not match. (2) string theory outlines a number, as many as 17 dimensions as yet unidentified. (3) space and time should be interchangeable but are not. (4) why does time always point forward, never backward, (5) why can’t we find a “unified theory” and (6) how can we explain all the different dimensions, referred to as string theory.

The Bible – imagine that – explains all of this. Virtually everything scientists have asked is answered by the Word of God. What scientists perceive but miss is the spiritual dimensions everywhere in space-time.

There are two types of time

There are two beginnings in time.  In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The beginning is the big bang and God predates that so God is the Big Banger. The cosmos because it has a beginning, middle and an end will eventually be done away with. That describes the temporal beginning of the created universe.

The 2nd description of a beginning

In John 1:1 John says, “Before the beginning began, the Word was.”  John is referring to eternity which is outside of time.  He begins his gospel with the time prior to Genesis 1:1. God was then in eternity as he also is now. God inhabits both time and eternity.  Time will eventually be done away with; eternity is just that. John 1;1 places Jesus originally in eternity to emphasize why he is God in the flesh, and not just a man born into time.

 Time and space will eventually end

God will, He said, roll earth up as a used garment and pitch it out.

Revelation 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Space and time are part of a unified whole BUT are also part of a “cosmic evolving.” They are relative to each other. The natural world works at one level and the cosmic at another. Scientists want to unify this but they can’t because they have not factored in eternity.

God is not “in” the universe

Scripture describes the unification in Colossians which says “God is all in all” and He is the “glue that holds the universe together.” This is not pantheism. God is no more in His creation than a woman is in a pie she bakes. He has contact with all parts of the universe because He chooses to do so.  Deism says God is not involved with his universe; poppycock!

God is in charge of more than we imagine

God has His hand in many things we ignore.  The weather for one. All the flap about Climate Change. God said the world would burn up, and he would do it.  Not man.  In the book of Amos He says he governs the weather, tornadoes, mildew, famine, hurricanes, floods, you name it.  All to prove a point.

As an example, think of the massive hurricane which wiped out most of New Orleans in 2005.  The hurricane was named Katrina which comes from a Greek word to”to cleanse.”  And New Orleans was a city of great pride in their moral depravity; Sodom and Gomorrah would be embarrassed to be so corrupt, and now it must start over.

He has a purpose for the universe. It is the training ground for human kind, their correction and eventual eternal life someplace else. The cosmos is not an end in itself; it is just a tool. The unification is the purpose for which the universe exists.

Colossians 1:16
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Many religions are cyclical

Animism, for example, and Buddhism and the many religions of India are based on the cycle of the seasons so their religions are time bound and include reincarnation which is cyclical in nature. That is to be expected from a cyclical religion.

Three religions are based on linear time – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  They are all goal oriented and monotheistic so they recognize an end to time. They also do not recognize the end to human personality, all believing that we all live forever in an eternal state for good or ill.

Cyclical religion has no such future, even though eternity is built into human nature. I found that Chinese people may accept atheism as a political issue but they all seemed to believe in a Chinese heaven. I asked a small child what was God’s name and she quickly said, Shang Di, which describes a Creator god.

People do not lose their innate sense of God simply because a politician says so.  This is one of the main reasons Falun Gong has become so proactive in China and so dangerous, because it added the spiritual dimension to a secular world.

Physicists grapple with the invisible world

These goals God has for man also explain the ”arrow of time.” Greene wonders, if time and space go both ways, why you cannot unbreak eggs; once they are broken, no amount of action or prayer can turn them back to eggs inside shells. This truth about the universe flies in the face of the other physical evidence. But it makes sense according to the Bible. God has a plan and He put it into motion at the beginning.

Time only moves forward

We don’t turn back because there is no reason to do so. Moses was able to look at God’s back, not the front, because he (Moses) is supposed to be facing the future. If he looks at God’s front his view is of the past. This is the arrow of time. You will recall your personal dreams are of the present and future; dreams can explain the past but never change it. You and the cosmos are not going backward. “Back to the Future” is a movie drama, and nothing more.

If and when you get to heaven you will be able to see the past because everything in time is recorded. But returning to that point and changing it will be impossible.

Quantum physics does not recognize a spiritual dimension

The 3rd reason quantum physics is confused is because it puts the cart, the natural, before the horse, the spiritual. If you want to understand what is really happening look to the spiritual reality behind it. If you want to know why a dictator is killing his citizens, find out what wild mental problem he has, narcissism, ego mania, even insanity. Far too much time is spent looking at symptoms and causes are ignored. Quantum Physics wants to explain the reality before it explains the spiritual.

Time has value and is not static

The 4th problem is the flexible nature of time. Here is where the most casual of scientists can figure things out. Time appears to be uniform but it is not. Time not only goes only forward, it also has different values depending on the living.

When you are young time goes very slowly. What do all children say in the car. “Are we there yet?” every five miles. Children also have a misapprehension of space. Talk of the Gulf War frightened some children until their dad asked them to remember how long it took to drive to grandma’s house, only one day, and that this war was over 15 days car travel away. The children breathed a sigh of relief. They were learning relativity at an early age. In practice, learning the truth about Santa Claus teaches us relativity.

Then at old age days fly by. Where did time go? If this can happen in the life of every person, why can’t we apply this to the life of the universe? It started fast and is slowing down, but as it is slowly down it is also slowly down faster.

2nd Law of Thermodynamics – time is changing

In fact isn’t that the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics? That the world is slowing down and wearing out, just as we do. This law also states that there is no going backwards. God has made it clear that we are all goal oriented.

The Law of Entropy

But this leads to another question scientists need to re-examine – the law of entropy. Carbon dating standards appear set in some kind of inexplicable bronze. Current values are a product of Newtonian physics, not Einsteinium. But the world itself shows the effect of mistaken time.

Carbon dating ignores the effect of the invisible world on time. I hope before I die I see the entire science of carbon dating revised to show how time has altered events of the past.

Originally lifetimes were hundreds of years; Adam lived 900 years. lifetimes were drastically reduced after the flood and have increased especially in the past two centuries. Age 100 is not common now but the Bible predicts that will be the age of a child in the future.

A the world physically deteriorates, human beings are improving, living longer, working smarter and happier, except where politicians see to it that no one is happy. Man’s sweep of influence increases with his knowledge and power, but environmentally there is increasing decay.

The invisible world can be multi-dimensional

The final issue in modern physics is string-theory which they call dimensions. A dimension is where someone or something can exist, and into which we might want to travel. Any real dimension has, in fact, dimensions, i.e. length, breath, width.

People who have seen angels say they have gender, color, and bulk, hardly a string. But to the physicist, it may look like a string since they see the shadow, not the reality. All humans have personality which also is invisible. That too could be a string in which case there are seven billion strings on the planet today. My personality will live forever after I die so who is to say it is not a string, as yet an unidentified or unrecognized.

One dimension may be human personality

There is no reason to assume these dimensions are inanimate objects or places. They are more likely to be personalities, what the Bible calls souls, or psyche, meaning will, intellect and emotion.

The first being to show up in the cosmos was a personality – God. Other persons soon followed. Angels have personalities, which surely is one dimension; animals have Will, Intellect and Emotion too – they clearly are in another dimension. Other places where Will, Intellect and Emotion exist is in our dreams, our drug-induced visions, demonic spirits and demons, and possibly other beings identified as having personality. I think of the stars which sing.

Music as a dimension

You can say this is literary license, but the Bible says, “Thy word is truth.” So let us not be so cavalier in our interpretation. The stars sing. It does not say the star has a song; player pianos have songs. Singing is done by beings.

Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Isaiah said mountains sing. In fact we can count sound as a dimension too. “No sound is without signification” which means a door slam, a dog bark or a brisk breeze means something. It may not have eternal meaning or  value but it does mean something.

1 Corinthians 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

David said he would prophesy, that is bring a message from God, on his harp (probably a guitar.) July 17, 2012, a guitarist on Kim Clement TV was “prophesying.” No interpretation was given and I did not get one, but the people there seemed to understand. Clearly this is a dimension we must not ignore.

Did God use music to create the universe

Some theologians believe that the language God used to create the universe was music. Spoken and written language is very limited but music, based on mathematics, has no limits.  So that theory makes sense. I have a book coming in 2020 which goes into more detail on this.

String theory says there is no empty space in space, -that something is there but what? The ancient Hebrews were not given to speculation but we modern Christians are. What if string theory is the mesh like reality of personalities in concert. Stay tuned. We have more research to do.

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

Why Pres. Trump is called “Cyrus”

A welk known Texas minister said last year, “What the public wants now is prophecy.” Well there is plenty of it.

The public wants prophecy

It started in the USA but the idea that God has appointed Donald Trump as a modern day political figure like Cyrus of the Old Testament was picked up also by Israel. Applauded by Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli leasers, they renamed a section in honor of President Trump even calling him a modern Cyrus. Trump is hailed as a prophet and blessing to the nation. https://www.theepochtimes.com/israel-unveils-new-settlement-named-trump-heights-on-golan_2965819.html

Trump as warrior for Israel

In the USA a book was published prior to the 2016 election predicting Donald Trump’s surprising win. https://www.amazon.com/Gods-Chaos-Candidate-American-Unraveling/dp/0998216402/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=god%27s+chaos+candidate&qid=1567425961&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Trump’s win had also been predicted by well known Christian evangelist/musician and South African prophet Kim Clement in 2007; Clement died 15 days after that election.

https://godinanutshell.com/2017/01/26/kim-clement-the-last-prophecy-of-kim-clement/

I supported Clement financially early in 2002 and remember hearing this prophecy in 2007. So, it is well documented. Most people can find it on line at the House of Destiny.com. The usual atheists don’t buy this but that is not new and should surprise no one.

What the Bible says about Trump/Cyrus?

Isaiah 45 Common English Bible (CEB)
Cyrus as God’s anointed
45 The Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus,
    whom I have grasped by the strong hand,
    to conquer nations before him,
    disarming kings,
    and opening doors before him,
    so no gates will be shut:
I myself will go before you,
    and I will level mountains.
I will shatter bronze doors;
    I will cut through iron
 bars.
I will give you hidden treasures of secret riches,
    so you will know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
For the sake of my servant Jacob and Israel my chosen,
    I called you by name.
I gave you an honored title,
    though you didn’t know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    besides me there is no God.
I strengthen you—
    though you don’t know me—
so all will know, from the rising of the sun to its setting,
    that there is nothing apart from me.
I am the Lord; there’s no other.
    I form light and create darkness,
    make prosperity and create doom;
    I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Pour down, you heavens above,
    and let the clouds flow with righteousness.
Let the earth open for salvation to bear fruit;
    let righteousness sprout as well.
    I, the Lord, have created these things.

Notice: The point of this passage is that God takes responsibility for putting Donald Trump (Cyrus) in office. Is this a reincarnation of the Biblical Cyrus? Absolutely not. The Bible says that these men come in the “spirit of” a forerunner, as it does of Elijah and John the Baptist.

http://Luke 1:17 He will go forth before the Lord, equipped with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will turn the hearts of fathers back to their children, and he will turn the disobedient to righteous patterns of thinking. He will make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Other writers have jumped on the topic as well.

Why does Trump appear invincible

All attempts to discredit and remove Trump from office have failed. But no matter, his foes continue without a let-up. And his foes have faced embarrassment and shame in many cases. https://wouldyouconsider.net/2019/07/01/what-energizes-the-media-hate-machine/

Don’t expect it to stop. There is a lot of profit in sex trafficking, higher taxes, and the abortion industry and the promotion of illegals’ entry into the USA which keeps many agencies and NGOs afloat financially.

God is protecting his appointee

One of the major blessings of being a Christian is knowing that when you are in the center of God’s will, his appointed or anointed one, no matter whether for a great task or a small, you have his complete attention and protection. The various cadre of atheists and self-appointed experts in things-political can’t picture this because God and His will aren’t involved in their own daily decision making.

But the bottom line here is that in the end they will all be spinning their wheels if they continue on this negative course. Christians prayed that someone would turn America around and it is happening.

The voters prove it.

Reincarnation – a Great Cartoon

Cartoonists often have subliminal messages that even they may not understand.

This cartoon makes an interesting statement. First notice that the new person that Steve Jobs becomes when he takes on a new body is a lowly Chinese coolie in an Apple factory. This emphasizes the fact that the dead have no control over the future -when they are dead. Steve’s opinion no matter how lofty in life means nothing hereafter.

Second, the Buddhists don’t like to be ordered around.

Third, saying you are a Buddhist and saying you are in heaven may not be true at all.

What kind of heaven is it if you don’t have something valuable. It looks like Steve Jobs is on his own in a foreign place. Hell would be a Chinese sweat shop.

The standard assumptions of reincarnation is that your future life will be better – but not here. The next assumption is that you have somehow magically avoided a judgment day – not so. To be a lowly coolie is judgment enough, but to date we have absolutely no proof that anyone ever returns from the grave as a new personality, or a new person.

By the way, we have many testimonials, see YouTube, from people who have been to both heaven and hell. Not all of them seem truthful, but if you watch 8-10 of each variety you’ll get a good handle on what the real places are like.

Reincarnation is a theory and a false comfort that merely postpones a judgment and little more. And by the way, who wants to come back as less than before? Wouldn’t you like a little progress? Wealth, status, opportunity, accolades were for Steve Jobs on this side of the grave. As a coolie- nothing. Not much to look forward to, eh?

God’s View of Time – Kairos and Chronos

<ga.js>Time and space as the same thing. And for your brief time on earth that is all you have – your allotted time and space.

Time and space define each other. There is an end to time and also an end to space. We don’t usually think of space ending but it does, or otherwise it can’t be space. Time defines it, and time will end. Time had a specified beginning which we refer to as The Big Bang, and due to the 2nd law of thermodynamics, it will also come to an end as the planets waste away.

God made space and therefore He also made time.

Isaiah 51:6 “Lift up your eyes to the sky,
Then look to the earth beneath;
For the sky will vanish like smoke,
And the earth will wear out like a garment
And its inhabitants will die [d]in like manner;
But My salvation will be forever,
And My righteousness will not wane.

The Lord throws in there a reminder that while even the earth will wimp away, all people will continue to live on.

Time is divided by hours, days, weeks, months, years and seasons. Of this list only man has control of days. Minutes are never mentioned. God determines the rest. Of both David and Job it is said they died “full of days.”

Job 42:17 And Job died, an old man and full of days.

A shortened life was not considered to be as honorable.

Weeks are given special status as festival times. God governs seasons; they will change whether you approve or whether it is convenient to you or not. Most people do not plan for the bad times; others delay, but times of inflation and recession and of prosperity are built into the system. See “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”

Many seasons are predefined. Most people, even if they have no Biblical information, have heard of this passage.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven—

2 A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
5 A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
9 What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? 10 I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.

11 He has made everything appropriate in its time.

Human Beings set unrealistic goals for themselves such as a life based on enjoying a euphoric status quo. And it never happens because this entire list is the inheritance of mankind.

I am also royally annoyed when one of the celebrity TV hosts says Starlet so-and-so mourns the tragic loss of her father. Tragic maybe if he was 50, but the old guy was 92. That is called a time to die. Tragic nothing. Learning to live with both loss and gain is part of our earthly assignment, and the rest of the list as well.

God knows everything about time, before, during and after. He is totally outside time and we are inside, for the time being.

But there are two types of time – kairos and chronos.

An MIT scientists explains the difference between chronos and kairos in this video. Diagram of How God Exists outside time (kairos) and the universe inside time (chronos)

This helps us to define omniscience, His knowing everything. Where people get off base is thinking God has His thumb on the scale. He doesn’t. You were born with a plan for your life; some people locate it, many do not. God is rooting for you and motivating you into that plan; but He never takes away your free will.

Back in the 1980’s there was a Broadway show “Fame” with a popular song “I’m gonna live forever,” as though this was special. Of course you will!

Everyone lives forever, it just depends on where one lives.

Everyone has eternal living, but not everyone has eternal life. You can live in an eternity of misery too. It’s called hell. And Your free will is what gets you to where you are going.

You have freedom in the context of the season when you were born. I was born into a world at war. It was a season of war. I had no ability to extricate myself from that. It was being fought, bravely and finally, by others. I could be a flaming pacifist if I chose but it would not take away that war. God had a great purpose in World War 2; He got the Jews out of Europe and into the very homeland He had promised two thousand years before. The way He managed this is the stuff of miraculous history.

Against All Odds Video Series If you have a chance, see this series.

God warned the Jews they were be in bondage for 70 years because they had violated the law of the Shemetah. They did, and He did. To the very 70th year they stayed as slaves and then were released. But God was not a tyrant. He did not extend the punishment beyond the stated years. Let us say you were born in the middle of those slavery years; you’d be chafing against the bit, thinking God had it out for you, But no, your parents and their parents generations previously caused this breach in their happy life in their home country and consequently also in yours.

Knowing God helps us to adjust to the life we have. I was an abused child, isolated from other people for most of my childhood. I hardly knew who I was or anything about the world. I could not imagine this being from God but I later saw how this prepared me for the life I now lead. Yes it was a tough assignment but those days are behind me, and I am more than able to handle where I am now.

2 Corinthians 6 (NKJV) Marks of the Ministry
6 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 2 For He says:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Now, since all humans will live in eternity we need to define it.

There is nothing in the Bible to verify the annihilation of humans. This is a popular theory to rid believers of a sense of responsibility for their own future. But, God’s word doesn’t go away. Another theory is reincarnation which says we’ll be born at another point in time. This also permits believers to assume they can get away with anything on earth in this life and not pay the price. Again wrong. If Jesus died for your sins, He died for the sins of the present not of the past or the future. You can see more on this topic at http://wp.me/p1otAF-1a.

Chrono – Earth Time

Genesis 1:1 starts chronological time. It says, “In the beginning” meaning the temporal beginning. The Greeks called this time “chronos.” We get many English words from this word. At the same time the Greeks recognized that there was an eternity outside time and independent of it. So John begins his gospel with these words, “Before the beginning began” meaning that there was an eternity prior to creation. There is an eternity after creation ends, as we have noted. John uses this to describe where Jesus was at the time of the creation. Here is the whole passage.

John 1:1-30 The Voice (VOICE)This Gospel begins not with Jesus’ birth or John’s baptism but with a deliberate echo of the creation story in Genesis. It takes us back before time began to the moment when God interrupts the silence and speaks the cosmos into existence. Only John’s Gospel names Jesus as the Logos and declares that He existed long before time was measured. This Greek word carries a variety of meanings, all relating to the act of speaking. It could be translated “word,” a thought that comes to expression, message, declaration, reason, or the content of preaching; most are found in various translations. It is clear that John means that logos is declared to all creation

Kairos – Eternity, timelessness

The Greek word indicating timelessness or eternal time is Kairos. This separation of the two elements of time is seen in the Old Testament as well.

Ezekiel 10:9-13 And then I saw four wheels beside the cherubim, one beside each cherub. The wheels radiating were sparkling like diamonds in the sun. All four wheels looked alike, each like a wheel within a wheel. When they moved, they went in any of the four directions but in a perfectly straight line. Where the cherubim went, the wheels went straight ahead. The cherubim were full of eyes in their backs, hands, and wings. The wheels likewise were full of eyes. I heard the wheels called “wheels within wheels.”

Truly this confuses even the best of us. But the picture is of outside wheels moving seamlessly through space and the wheels inside moving very quickly. This is a picture of God’s time: Eternity (kairos) on the outside and chronos on the inside.” As eternity moves forward the time/space we live in is moving inside eternity. Most of the images on the internet were more confusing that the Bible!!! No wonder it’s been co-opted by New Age stuff. At the very least the images should be 3D. Seeing it without diamonds or mini-angels makes it easier to comprehend.

These 2 are a poor representation but a start.wheels2The Chronos wheel inside the Kairos wheel

At least this one is poised in space with God looking on.wheels3Outer wheel kairos; inner wheel chronos

Eventually chronos will go away and we all live somewhere in kairos.

What is the meaning of this lesson? Frankly, life is not to be wasted. There are consequences for frittering away your time, or that of others. There are consequences for failing to support The Lord and His word. God has made a way for all men; His eyes look to and fro across the earth to see who is looking for him.

2 Chronicles 16:8 The Message – God is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him.

You are not being ignored.
