The Big Lie

My old girl, Tessy. True love!

My old girl, Tessy. True love!

I was in my apartment in a somewhat questionable part of town, when a man walked up to my living room window, pulled out a glass cutter and began to make a long incision. Angered but feeling somewhat threatened, I opened the front door and began talking to this man. I told him to please stop because that would be expensive to repair and I was out of work just then. Probably surprised by this unusual approached, he replaced the tool to his pocket and walked over to me. We began talking and before long he decided to enter my apartment, and we continued to talk. As the door remained open, some people walking by heard us talking and followed him in. Pretty soon the house was full of people, all talking and visiting with each other.
That’s when I became aware that this had been a dream, and in my half awake state, I found myself asking the question: Continue reading

Big Bang AND Creation

Theoretical cosmologists’ rendition of how things began. An interesting theory, but highly speculative, as is the time frame. Science tries to imply that conjecture is “proof” of the inaccuracy of biblical description of creation. With theoretical models such as these, we enter a quantum twilight zone where billions of years may be as accurate as days of creation.   Continue reading

“Thoughts and Visions” collage. The prophet’s bubble from a painting by Edoardo Rodriguez Caldazo.

Theoretical physicists and quantum physicists are some of the scientists who attempt to pull back the veil and peak into the unknowable. In the Old Testament, that was the role of prophets. What I’m calling the unknowable, could probably be better phrased. Unknowable is not a good word here. What might be a better way to say it is to say that these people, seated in our four-dimensional world, are attempting to peer into the fifth dimension and beyond using the limited tools we have at our disposal. It is clear to me that the creator, through the Holy Spirit, is constantly broadcasting truth, inspiration which some are able to capture with our imagination, mind, and spiritual gifting. Some are aware of this source outside of ourselves, while others believe they are themselves the source. And some even believe that they are making up thoughts through random or deterministic firings of the neurons in their brains. Continue reading

Milk is For Babies

Prefer milk?

Prefer milk?

For the last few weeks I’ve been studying the blood covenant and it’s meaning for us as we understand our relationship with God.  The more I study and ponder on this subject the more daunting it becomes to know where to start.  So today, I just thought I would keep it on the lighter side, and talk about a few things that have been floating on the margins and not finding their way into a blog.   To be perfectly honest, I’ve been missing the writing.  I should confess that I’m fairly addicted to the feeling I get when I start writing, and hit that groove where the Holy Spirit takes over.  Please don’t think me presumptuous if I say that the Holy Spirit helps me.  I think it’s safe to say that if the Holy Spirit does not help anyone writing about matters of God and His ways, you shouldn’t waste your time reading it.  That’s what God calls “Ghost written” material!  Except when He comes, He wraps His loving arms around you, and massages your brain with His electromagnetic fingers, and, well, you just want to write every day.  Continue reading

Choosing Life Or Death

On earth, light is probably the closest phenomenon that can express God.  He tells us so: “I am the light of the world.”  He is light.  He radiates light.  And being close to Him even Satan was a radiant being [Ezekiel 28:12-14]  Moses ascends the mountain to be in God’s presence, and when he returns his face is glowing.  In proximity to God he absorbed the radiance and became radiant himself.  He glowed.  Conversely, when both of these left God’s presence, they ceased to be radiant.

It follows that to become radiant like God, we must Continue reading

Light and Other New Parables

explosion of light

 

Light is the demarcation and the entry point from Newtonian or classical physics into relativistic Physics and into Quantum Physics. Light is also the Biblical entry point of the created universe. In the beginning there was chaos: “The earth was formless and void”. ”Then God said ‘Let there be light’”. The rest of creation followed. Jesus enters our world on earth, and announces, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

Jesus was a master of teaching with parables and metaphors. A parable is a similitude, a prolonged metaphor, a story or image that conveys or imparts meaning to another reality which is similar or congruent to it but in another realm. Seeds and soil, vines and branches, fruit, and much more take on spiritual, moral and eternal significance requiring some understanding of basic agriculture, and in the culture and history of the times of Christ, which were common knowledge at the time.

Our Creator God is intentional in His creation. When He designed man He conceived of a designer environment for us. Scientists who search for other worlds that could support human life, they list all the necessary factors. If you string these factors into a sort of equation, and assign probability – or rather improbability – to each factor, you are faced with just how nearly impossible it is to reproduce a habitable planet by random chance.  God’s intentionality and a designer creation is the only possible conclusion, intuitively, rationally, and even scientifically.

So, did Jesus have a knack for finding random examples in nature for teaching spiritual realities? Or is it possible that this amazing creator-designer God actually wove the same principles into seeds and soil as are at work in the truths they illustrate. Could there not be a multitude of undiscovered parables designed into creation that we are only now able to understand through science? I’m certain of it! And I think light has the greatest potential for the mining of contemporary parables.

The more I study science, the more I see semantic similarity¹ between natural phenomena and supernatural realities. Bearing in mind, all the while, that “natural” merely implies phenomena in the vibrational wavelength of time-space – the 4 dimensions – and super-natural meaning phenomena and realities of the 5th and higher dimensions.

Science unwittingly provides the insights, within the scope of its latest and greatest theories and experiments, for us to understand what similitude God has provided within time-space, which shed light on, illuminate, enlighten, elucidate, spiritual realities (funny, there doesn’t seem to be a synonym that doesn’t contain a word for light, whether from Latin or other language).

On the other hand, religion ignores science in about the same way we might ignore philately, the study of postage stamps, as irrelevant curiosity. At worse, religion rejects and opposes science, in an effort to flex political muscle and spiritual abuse. Of course the most amusing illustration is the Papal edict that the earth was flat, which was not only outside their area of expertise, but even contradicted Scripture: “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth”. (Isaiah 40:22)

Science, on the other hand, has taken a religious position of its own, equally narrow-minded and blind, which precludes the involvement of a creator/god in the workings of our universe. Ever since the flat earth debacle in the fifteen hundreds, science has taken a blind faith approach against anything of a supernatural nature.

Suffice it to say, that dogmatic approaches to science or religion are doomed to extinction. Sadly, very few scientists know the Bible to any great depth, and very few bible scholars know much if anything of science. Richard Feynman, a theoretical Physicist with the whit of Will Rogers, sums it all up saying, “The old problems, such as the relation of science and religion, are still with us, and I believe present as difficult dilemmas as ever, but they are not often publicly discussed because of the limitations of specialization.” Otherwise put, ignorance on both parts.

Science and religion behave like oil and vinegar: they refuse to get together. But add an egg yolk and they get together intimately and they emulsify and the result is that heavenly concoction known as mayonnaise. Perhaps in some small way I could be a human emulsifier. But as in the old joke about how many psychiatrists it takes to change a light bulb, it really has to want to change!

Hope you’re as eager to share upcoming insights about light, special relativity, holographic effects and the binary world we live in.

¹ Semantic similarity. I’m borrowing a technical term meaning: “semantic similarity or semantic relatedness is a metric defined over a set of documents or terms, where the idea of distance between them is based on the likeness of their meaning or semantic content as opposed to similarity which can be estimated regarding their syntactical representation (e.g. their string format). These are mathematical tools used to estimate the strength of the semantic relationship between units of language, concepts or instances, through a numerical description obtained according to the comparison of information supporting their meaning or describing their nature.” (Wikipedia)

Walking in the Spirit

 

"The Child Grew Strong in Spirit" by Ann Guerri "Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all" Luke 18:17

“The Child Grew Strong in Spirit” by Ann Guerri
“Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all” Luke 18:17

What is eternal life? It is existing in the dimensions of heaven, the realm of God, the Kingdom.  Jesus, was the walking, breathing Kingdom come to earth, the Kingdom in the flesh. He was both the DNA of man and the DNA of God, the Spirit. He re-wed us to the Father. A kind of reaffirmation of our original marriage to God whereby we were face to face with Him.

Before we chose the way of earth over the way of God, heaven, we had senses that could “see” into what we call the invisible world. That is “extra-sensory perception”. We were able to converse with God as easily as we can converse with each other. “Your new life is not like your old life. Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God’s living Word. Just think: a life conceived by God himself!”¹   When we believe Messiah and the Eternal who sent him, we receive the eternal God-seed, and our “extra” senses are restored. “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”²

Part of what was lost was the use of this apparatus (”extra” senses) that once was functional. The Word says that when we are born again of Spirit, we are able to hear His voice and operate in the gifts of the spirit. Why, then, do most Christians not function in the gifts of the Spirit? Quite simply, because we disbelieve. We disbelieve in those dimensions we can’t see or touch, the dimensions beyond time/space. In the Western world, this disbelief has been caused by the limited and narrow minded scientific mentality born of the so called Age of Enlightenment, and by the limited and false teaching of the church. Which is why Jesus said that to enter the Kingdom of God, we had to enter as children.³ This does not just refer to entering heaven, but to access the Kingdom which Jesus made accessible when He said,  “Change your life. God’s kingdom is here.” .⁴

Before Jesus went to the cross and resurrected, unexplainable occurrences (miracles) were happening by God’s direct intervention and intention. The parting of the Red Sea, the materialization of enough food to feed thousands are just two of many. But after the cross and resurrection, when death was conquered, our world entered into a whole new “reality”. This was the possibility of life in the same dimensional existence as that of spirit, as that of God Himself, and similar to the world of the quanta. Walking in the Spirit, as Paul puts it, man became capable of doing greater miracles than Jesus.⁵ Of course the key word is “capable”. Jesus was prophesying what God intends for us. We have to choose to walk in it now. Sadly, in most churches the supernatural has been relegated to the distant past of the apostles, and pushed off into the distant future era after the second coming of Messiah. Didn’t Jesus say, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.”⁶ Personally I have seen prophecy, healing, and miracles of provision flowing freely right here and now. The Kingdom is here at hand and operating in some churches. Why not in all? It only takes a decision to believe and “just do it!”⁷

                              “Speak to Him, thou, for He hears, and Spirit with Spirit can meet-
                               Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.”

Dimentions 3 – Kingdom

Jesus painted by Akiane Ktamarik

Painting of Jesus painted by Akiane Ktamarik; montage and photo of Montana sunset by author.

Most of us identify with three spatial dimensions and time. We’ve been brainwashed to believe that we have five senses that are limited to detecting those four dimensions. The geometry we studied in high school is limited to three dimensions, and doesn’t even cover curved surfaces (such as the geometry of geography). Although science is discovering a multi-dimensional reality that meshes with Biblical realities, this knowledge is so complex and requiring of mathematics, that only scientists comprehend it. Unfortunately, most of these will never know what the Bible says. On the other side of the equation, there are very few Bible scholars and clergy who know anything about science.

Physicist Richard Feynman, a source of some delightful quotes, says the following: “The old problems, such as the relation of science and religion, are still with us, and I believe present as difficult dilemmas as ever, but they are not often publicly discussed because of the limitations of specialization.”

What’s remarkable is that the Bible has never been contradicted by scientific discovery or archaeological or historical finding. The only contradictions arise from people’s interpretations of the Bible. A perfect example is the contradictory beliefs about the actual time passage occurring during the Genesis 6 days of creation. But I think that to believe that time as we know it today is what is meant here, is rather silly. I can easily imagine that quantum effects, relativistic time warp page and perhaps other as yet unknown factors could render the 6 days of creation to mean just about any amount of “time” to elapse without contradiction.

As I said, nothing has ever disqualified the veracity of the Bible.   Having said this, what has been disqualified is human desire to dominate, usurp power (spiritual and temporal), and just plain ignorance. So I want to be clear: I may at times be bashing what I consider narrow-minded or wrong thinking, but never Biblical truth. My only motivation is to make an attempt, however feeble and limited on my part, to move the people I love, and some I have never met, towards a little better knowledge of this cosmic and personal God.

When Jesus burst into our four-dimensional reality, his first words to the people around him were , “Change your whole way of being, for the kingdom of heaven has come near!” (my translation). The actual quote begins with a quote from the prophet Isaiah, shown in capitals:

Matt 4:16-17      16 “THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT,  AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH,  UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED.

17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

To repent means to change the way we look at things and therefore the way we live. These were also the identical last words of John the Baptist, the last Old Testament prophet sent to announce messiah. And since Biblical repetition always means wake up and pay attention, let’s ask ourselves what this might mean.

So,why did Matthew, the writer, juxtapose these two thoughts? The interpretation seems very clear. Jesus is light coming into the darkness. He is the expression in flesh of God, the radiant one, even radioactive one, he glows by the vibrations of multiple dimensions – heaven, which is the kingdom. Thus, the kingdom of heaven is now here and it’s light is irradiating us, thus changing us, with our cooperation, into seeing things differently, and transforming us — true repentance!

Paul says ” He [God]rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son”. What is the domain of darkness? It is the state of being we chose when we desired to experience sexual and sensual sensations, and other delights of the five senses and four dimensions at the time of the fall. What? Is that really your interpretation of the fall? Yes, pretty much. Before that, I think it’s clear that we existed in the state we were created in. We were face to face with God, conversing as with a loving papa, were we not? I think we were aware of and existing in a vibratory or dimensional state much superior to our current one. One which made possible tuning in His ultra-hyper-high frequencies on an everyday basis.

Paul says “all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible” ¹ So we can easily conclude that creation included matter that was of the four dimensions as well as matter that was of subtler dimension. Matter that requires more coordinates to describe it than most of us can fathom. I’m told that astrophysicists believe through experiments and calculations, that we can detect only 5% of the matter of the universe.

Let’s keep stretching. Our goal is to understand and embrace what Paul meant when he said to walk in the spirit. Visible and invisible. What if both are one and the same? What if the difference is caught up in the curlicues of never-never land: the quanta, mu masons, strong and weak forces, dark energy, quarks, and what have you. What if the difference between matter and spirit, visible and invisible, particles and waves were a conceptual problem of we “fallen” humans.

“Light and matter are both single entities, and the apparent  duality arises in the limitations of our language.”²             (Werner Heisenberg)

My translation of the above is that visible matter (particles) is a projection of something invisible. We call these two conventions particles and waves for want of better words to express ourselves, because our language is also a product of our fallen, four-dimensional reality. We use two words to express apparently contradictory phenomena, particles and waves, but neither really exists to the exclusion of the other.

Perhaps matter and waves are not altogether different than flesh and spirit, or at least they express parallel qualities. Perhaps the separation between flesh and spirit is an effect of the fall of man from one state to another, where spirit became almost alien and separate. But the very presence of the kingdom, as incarnated in Jesus (God and man in one body), irradiates us with another dimensions which in turn re-marries flesh and spirit.

Are we sufficiently stretched to be able to accept that the Biblical world view may be literally valid, just lacking in language to express another reality: the reality of heaven. Angels for instance, can be understood as beings of a vibrational nature more subtle, or dimensionally more complex, than ours, being able to move by mere intention through space and through matter, and to show themselves on earth in form we can perceive even with the senses. Witness the many apparition of angels such as the to Mary (the annunciation), the archangel Michael to Daniel, and many others. The Mount of Transfiguration, also a trans-dimensional manifestation by beings from other dimensions. Or perhaps more accurately, multi-dimensional beings able to choose to manifest also here in our lesser four dimensions.

But let’s call it a day for now.   If this is starting to make sense, you may be a trans-dimensional being as well.

Heavenly Sex

eyes for blog

What is sex like in heaven, I wondered with my wife this morning. For a moment I looked into her eyes and, slightly surprised, she looked into mine…

Someone in our Bethel, Redding home group had given us a CD of the pink-haired Kat Kerr speaking in some detail what she claims to have seen of heaven. Much of it seems plausible to me, and nothing screamed heresy. one of her ideas is that married people in heaven are not in the same exclusive relationship, but live next-door, all the while remembering past relationships, and enjoying them in some special way even in heaven.

So I was saying to my wife that I think exchanges in Heaven are not so constrained to our four dimensions. In the same way, I think that language is not transmitted by sound vibrations, but by much higher frequencies, perhaps more resembling the waves of energy that science is measuring as emanating from our brains, our thoughts.

The nature of exchanges, whether for communication or sexual intercourse, will likely be more subtle, fine, or delicate. In the same way as we can imagine living in a two-dimensional world and trying to understand a three-dimensional world, we can think of trying to communicate verbally underwater, and then in an air environment. If you’ve ever tried to communicate underwater, you know immediately how unclear words are, and how difficult to talk or hear it is. Moving from a liquid to a gas environment, we obviously gain clarity and ease, and eliminate noise, which is defined as anything that impedes communication. In a similar way, from earth to heaven, all things will surely be transformed into something sweeter, clearer, more intense, and more pure. Purity always reduces noxious byproducts.

Now try to imagine communicating in another medium yet. This time, we have more of a challenge, as we have to imagine communication in another dimension (See Dimensions 1 – Heavenly Coordinates). Mostly we’re aware of the four time-space dimensions we inhabit and are aware of. But scientists now believe there are as many as ten dimensions. More probably, there are many more than ten, who knows. In any case, communicating may give way to communing, or communion.

When Jesus had communion with the disciples, reclining around the Passover table, wasn’t He inviting us to a deeper communication? Thus, communion! Wasn’t He inviting us to partake of a moment where God Himself touched us in a very intimate way? Truly, Jesus brought together man and God in his own body. This is the meaning of incarnation. The Spirit of God impregnated the human Mary with a sperm from another dimension and Jesus was born. Now He impregnates us with His living word Continue reading

Dimensions 2 – Randomness and Ignorance

Something unknown to us is by definition random and unpredictable. Scientifically, whatever appears random and unpredictable is so because of our ignorance.

   Randomness = Ignorance = Unpredictability

The ways of God often appear strange, inexplicable, and sometimes downright cruel. And the less we know about Him, the more is He seemingly random, unpredictable, and inconsistent with anything that would make sense to a mere mortal. How often have you heard the question posed: “If God is good, why is there so much suffering in the world?” Who is more likely to pose this question, a Christian, or someone arguing with one? I’m proposing that it is scientifically sound to conclude that it is more likely to be spoken by a someone who has no understanding of who God is, or by a religious Christian who has learned man’s ideas about God.¹

According to the accepted definition of randomness and unpredictability, the more we know about a phenomenon or a person, the better we can predict what we might expect to occur. Bible study is the quickest way to learn about God since it is all about Him, and inspired by Him. So if you have questions about Him, you must study what He says about Himself over two thousand years, speaking through 40 authors writing 66 books with perfect consistency. Many skeptics have set out to read the Bible in order to disprove it, and in the process have fallen in love with God.

“If God is good, why is there so much suffering in the world?”

Surely, after some research in the books of the bible, you will see that God is crazy about free choice for His created ones. In fact, even angels who inhabit His multi-dimensional realm – heaven – are seen to be able to make bad choices and cause their own demise. So you will easily discover in the very first book, Genesis, how man chose to know evil, and the consequences of suffering and even death that followed. Without that piece of information, we would assume that death and suffering are all God’s doing, and that He is responsible for our actions and choices.

Referring to the simple formula quoted above, we see that the more we learn about someone or something, the more predictable they become. As our ignorance diminishes, the apparent randomness diminishes, and meaning emerges.

I believe this is a universal truth. In relationships, when we focus inward, on our own needs and desires, we are refusing to know the other. When we refuse to know the other, their actions appear random and therefore inexcusable and unforgivable, unpredictable, and just plain annoying. The minute we focus on the other, the attempt to know leads to forgiveness.

When Jesus was hanging on the cross, He could easily have been very annoyed with His persecutors. Instead, He knew and understood them, and asked the Father to forgive them because they didn’t know what they were doing.

Apparent randomness and unpredictability could be defined as the sum of our ignorance. Let me demonstrate this with the game of Blackjack. A book and movie came out a few years ago titled “Taking Down the House”. This was a true story about a group of MIT students who challenged the odds of the game by counting cards.

blackjack strategy chart m1

When the deck is newly shuffled, the chance of a card being a value of 10 is 4 in 13 – 10s and face cards all having a value of 10. As more cards are dealt, the probability of getting a 10-valued card changes. A sharp player can count 10-valued cards and using a simple formula determine how to modify the standard playing strategy (which is based on a random or freshly shuffled deck). Since the odds of winning are calculated on cards being dealt at random, knowing that the remaining deck is 10-rich or 10-poor and changing strategy accordingly gives a player a slight edge, turning the odds of winning over 50% of the time over to the player.

Without keeping track of the cards that have previously come out of the shoe (usually a stack of multiple decks that are shuffled periodically) or if the shoe has just been shuffled, one must consider the next card to be random, therefore having a 4 in 13 chance of being a value of ten. That is because we don’t know anything about the probability of the rank of the next card to be drawn. If we count the cards with a value of ten that are dealt, we progressively know more of the likelihood of 10s being dealt. The more cards are dealt without shuffling, the more we know about the odds of the next card being a value of 10, and we adjust our play accordingly.

Consider another example. We are watching a person standing in a store. We know he or she is considering stealing something. Without knowing anything about the person, all we know is that there are two possibilities: steal or not steal. If we knew some shoplifting statistics, such as the percentage of visitors in a mall who shoplift, we would only be able to apply that general statistic to the person we are observing. If we knew more about the person, such as age, sex, religious training, something about the parents and other sociological facts, we would be able to further improve our success at predicting the choice made.

In the “game” of life, as with Blackjack, we can just blunder along, knowing so little about its inner workings, so little about it’s designer, that the odds are always stacked against us. Or we can undertake this amazing journey of discovery, that will lead to a winning strategy. The Bible calls it being overcomers. The Bible is a guide book about the Great Designer, written by Himself for us to learn, implement and obtain ultimate victory:            I highly recommend it!

_________________________________________________________                 1. Pharisees in the New Testament are a perfect example of “believers” not knowing God. According to Jesus, they had made up their own religion, and the bible (Old Testament) had not done for them what it was intended to do: to take man into relationship with the living God.
