Trust God

Life is not perfect; but God’s love is. It is made perfect in weakness; there is no fear in love. This is biblical. That is not to say life is perfect or that the world is perfect, though. ‘The universe doesn’t have to make sense to us’ is how one of my favorite physicists put it.

We are moving here through entropy, although we call it ‘time.’ Time is manmade, and we even have different time zones. That is because time is relative based on where you are positioned. “It is not the same for everyone” is how Einstein explained it.

Often we hear others say, “God’s timing is perfect.” What does that mean anyway? A million years to God is not the same as it would be for us. He is eternal. At the start of the universe (that some like to call, “The Big Bang”), I will call it the “Big event,” only because there was no bang. There were no air molecules at that time. God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light.

Let’s not complicate things. Everything you see today is made up of light. Even us. Did you know that the elements in our bodies are the same elements that are in stardust? It’s true. That’s not to say we don’t have organs or blood, but we are made of stardust. We are also made up of atoms. We are made of billions and billions of atoms that never die.

It’s a primary rule of physics. Scripture also tells us we are made in his likeness and image, and in the Bible there are several places where God is called light. He is the light of the world. He is light and in him there can be no darkness at all. God is light and he created it.

When we see something happening that doesn’t seem “God-like,” we must trust in God and carry our cross. Again, the world doesn’t have to cater to us. We have to conform and learn how to adapt. Now, that is NOT to say that we have to conform to the world. But we ARE living in the world, so we have to live amongst one another in acceptance and love.

We have to forgive, and that is hard to do at times. But as you know, these are some of the first commandments. Love your neighbor as yourself; forgive and let it go. Turn the “other cheek.” In a world divided like it never has been, this may seem hard.

But keep in mind that God is love. And that we must trust him no matter what. God has made his son heir of all things, through who he has also made the universe (Hebrews 1:2). God loves us indiscriminately, let’s at least do our very best!

Black holes and the slowing of time!

Ever wonder why time slows down near the edge of black hole? It’s because gravity doesn’t just pull down on matter and energy. It pulls down on time itself. Gravity is the warping of time. It’s why clocks will click off at different times according to where they are located. It’s why we have different time zones: EST vs. Pacific, for example. But as you get closer to the edge of a black hole, your clock gets slower and slower until it eventually stops! So, time stops because it is eternal (if you were caught near a black hole or even sucked inside!).


What is entanglement? Let’s take a look at this theory for a minute. It is when two widely separated particles act as if they are just next to one another. Separating them would make you think they are independent; however, they are not independent. There is communication. The particles behave the same way and even act the same. One particle could be in Los Angeles, and one could be in New York City. It doesn’t matter. They are influencing each other. They are entangled. There is something called ‘particle spin.’ Particles like to spin around.

But what is weird about entanglement is that you can have two particles (both spinning in opposite directions) and be widely separated. Still, when you measure each particle, they are spinning simultaneously! They are influencing one another. This phenomenon has left the world’s greatest physicists baffled for years. Einstein even called it ‘spooky action at a distance.’ They can even be on opposite sides of the universe or in the same room! One will spin up, and one will spin down at the same time!


Why is it relevant? Well, God says we are entangled with him in various places in the bible. When one died, ‘all died,’ for example. And the same with scripture that tells us, ‘we have been raised with Christ,’ before we were even alive. Also, we are made in his image and likeness. We are ‘duplicates.’ We are ‘paired’ whether or not we realize it. It happens everywhere. There is this entanglement all across the universe. Everything in the universe is duplicated.


However, let’s imagine that there is a chance the one can fall into a black hole. Ironically, if one of the entangled particles falls into the black hole, the other will not. So, why does only one of them fall into the hole? Why does the ‘thread’ snap? Because when one of them falls into the hole, time stops. Thus, there is no reason for a ‘duplicate’ any longer. The one in the black hole is eternal. You are no longer entangled. You are one with God! Some of these notes are based on Brian Greene’s ‘World Science Festival’s live lecture’ and Q and A online.

There is no time, there is entropy🌌

We feel like we’re moving through time, or flowing through it. However, time is not what we think it is. From a physics perspective, the idea that time passes or that we move through time–disappears. It’s no where to be found in the fundamental Laws of Physics, but it’s clearly in our every day lives.

So, what is going on? Is time an illusion? The passage of time notion disappears from a physicist point of view. There are Laws of Motion and Gravitation that help us predict the future, where there will be eclipses, for example. You can EVEN predict the past.

The Laws of Physics wil tell you what was going on in past history. It’s called Conservation of Information. All the information you need is in it. It can predict the future and past. This goes against the idea that time is flowing. There is nothing special about ‘now.’

The Laws of Physics describe EVERY moment of time being of an EQUAL importance. There is no distinction between past, present, and future in space-time, taught Einstein. We have records, memories, photographs, and artifacts.

However, we don’t have photogrpahs or autographs that tell us about the future in the same way as we do our past. We feel as though the past is settled but as though the future is not, and that we can make choices. But we don’t believe we can make choices to change the past.

So why are they so different? It’s called entropy. Entropy is the disorderness of the system. We are taught that entropy increases over time. There is a directionality. The second law of thernodanamics says that entropy increases over time. The first law of thermodynamics is that energy is constant.

“But in terms of the second, over time entropy increases,” says Sean Carroll–a famous physicist. The second law does tell us entropy will be higher in the future but lower in the past. When you look at a cup of coffee, you don’t see the atoms in which it’s made. It gets more mixed together and harder to distinguish over time right after you mix it.

‘Think of the arrow of time this way, it is not built into the fundamental nature of reality. We live in the aftermath of the big bang,’ says Sean Carroll, a world renowned physicist. ‘It was very low entropy and orderly in the beginning.’

Since time is relative, and the past, present, and future are equally as real in space-time, I often wonder if I can still regard myself as the broken sixteen-year-old I once was and doing all of this from my hospital bed. Just a thought!🤔

God’s Throne Room✨⭐️🌟

Apparently, God’s throne room is a cluster of stars and even has a name. NASA has a picture of the cluster of stars that I’ve copied below here. This cluster holds our Milky Way Galaxy together and time slows down there. When you apply Einstein’s theory of relativity, a day in heaven is equivalent to a thousand years on earth. And that is how it is there, in heaven.

‘That’s because time varies based on velocity, energy, and mass (gravity). Let’s take mass (gravity). According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, as gravity increases, time slows down.’ Time moves more quickly for someone in a low gravity environment than it does for someone in a high gravity environment.

This may explain why time moves slower in God’s throne room, again. The Lord dwells where gravity is high relative to that on earth. We know that His throne is in a ‘star cluster’ containing many large stars, something which would create massive gravity and slow it down perhaps to where a day is ‘equivalent to a thousand years.’

Abraham 3:2 reads: “And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God: and there were many great ones which were near unto it.” The name of the one nearest to God’s throne is Kolob. Abraham tells us that Kolob “govern[s] all those [worlds] which belong to the same order as that upon which [Abraham] standest.”

Kolob could be at the center of our galaxy. The gravitational pull created by this cluster of huge stars (along with gravity from dark matter) holds our galaxy together and keeps the outer rims (where we are) from flying off into the intergalactic space.

The massive gravity in that cluster would slow down time, perhaps to the point where one day equaled a thousand years on earth. The Book of Abraham was canonized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1880.

God proves science!🌟🎆🌠

I have studied physics for a year and a half now, and all of the theories I’ve learned further prove God and his excellent existence! The fact is that the greatest physicists now say we are moving here through our imagination. We are made up of billions and billions of atoms that can never die.

The Theory of entanglement holds across the universe. These are Biblical principles taught to us through physics, but you would never know it without studying the universe. The Bible teaches us we are ‘entangled with Christ.’ Every human being has already ‘died’ because when One died, all died’ the Bible tells us.

‘That we no longer live for ourselves but live for the one who died and rose again for us.’ Modern physicists are now teaching that everything is happening at the same time. Actually, ‘time’ is the only thing stopping everything from happening all at once; however, the past, present, and future are equally real. In space time, there is no distincition.

Scientists are now suggesting that there may be multiverses because of the Theory of entanglement. ‘When one electron is in any given space, there is a complete duplicate that will even move and act the same way in a different place.’ The two particles can be on opposite sides of the universe, but they will behave the same way. It is entanglement.

Technically, we are ‘particles,’ so this means we also have ‘duplicates.’ Physicists are now talking about assimilation. Like, are there multiple universes where there are copies and copies of ourselves? Where else are we? We can be here and there. I believe we can occupy heaven and earth at the same time, in my opinion, so this Theory of entanglement makes total sense.

I can also accept all of it because I know how amazing God is. It doesn’t challenge my faith. It strengthens it! The Theory of relativity teaches us the importance of light. There is light in everything. God created it. The first thing he created was light. Light makes up the entire universe. Our bodies are composed of billions of atoms, again, that absorb and emit light.

According to Einstein’s Theory, light’s speed is the only thing in the universe that is constant. I listen to some great physicists such as Dr. Briane Greene, Leonard Susskind, and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. People who only listen to what their church teaches, who are afraid to ‘leave the pew,’ so to speak, and study science are missing out.

God has put all the puzzle pieces together for us. Because God is perfect, and so is his design. God cannot be anything but perfect, so all the answers have been revealed and science is discovering more. Physicists are just adding to what they already know, and with every mind-blowing discovery, God’s magnificence is revealed!

The Boltzmann Brain🧠☀️🌌

If you’ve never heard of the Big Bang, it was the ‘rapid swelling of space and time’ that started our universe 13.8 billion years ago; however, today, I found out that physicists assume that ‘space and time’ have always been there! If that is true, when did space-time begin? It’s like asking, when did God begin? We know he’s always existed, but was there ever a ‘beginning?’ I don’t believe so because we know that God is eternal. He will always be there!

So, it’s not really about how the universe ‘began’ when studying the Big Bang; it’s about how the universe EVOLVED. Something was already there–space-time (God!). The universe was already in existence before the Big Bang occurred, which the world’s greatest physicists tell us. So, WHAT caused the ‘swelling’ or push outward? Gravity.

Newton taught us that gravity could only pull inward, which left us scratching our heads. When Einstein came along, he taught us that gravity doesn’t only pull inward. It also pushes outward! Gravity is everything! It’s called repulsive gravity that caused the universe to ‘swell’ and form. Gravity holds all things together and even forms stars!

How did we come about? How do particles like quarks, electrons, and neutrinos come together and produce consciousness? God. Why are we the only ones aware of our mortality? There are sea creatures and various animals that walk the earth. But they are not as knowledgeable as we are.

And what about entropy? When the universe reaches a low enough state of entropy, everything will start to fall apart! What happens after everything disintegrates? Every structure, human, building, and ALL OF MATTER will eventually die. EVERYTHING dies!

We are taught that once there is nothing left other than some particles forming in the void, there can be a ‘reforming’ of particles. Particles can start to come together again and form a brain in the void. It’s called the Boltzmann brain. As a matter of fact, it is more likely for a single brain to appear in the void than for a new Big Bang to occur.

The definition of a Boltzmann’s brain is a fully formed brain, complete with memories of fully human life in our universe, that arises due to extremely rare random fluctuations out of a state of thermodynamic equilibrium in our universe! You see, consciousness is just particles and forces, and that’s all you need for the ‘lights to turn on.’

I believe this event will represent the return of Christ. And then, somewhere down the line, I’m not sure how long after–heaven will come down to earth! There is a reason the Lord instructs us to pray this way: Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.💕

The End of ‘Time’🌌

We are the only ones in the universe. God didn’t make other life, as far as we know. I mean, there are creatures and sea life, etc. But there is no evidence for alien life, and the Bible makes no mention of it. We have searched and found nothing so far.

It doesn’t surprise me that we are the only ones here: God’s children. We are also the only ones brought to consciousness and aware of our own mortality. The greatest physicists have told us that we are here by chance. At the beginning of what we know as ‘time,’ or ‘the Big Bang’ 13. 8 billion years ago, everything was ordered and designed.

God doesn’t make mistakes, though. We are not here by ‘chance.’ We are here deliberately for a purpose, and each one of us is unique with our own gifts, talents, and even failures and shortcomings.

I don’t know if my mind could ever understand all of physics. I majored in English and minored in History and often wish I would’ve studied science more. It is one of my favorite subjects nowadays. Although I love to write, of course.

I have learned a lot about light, Einstein’s theory of relativity, how light is eternal (Godly). Not only did God create light, but the Bible tells us he is light in many places which I referenced in my previous post.

But back to time. When did it begin? Did it begin with the Big Bang? If God is eternal (which I believe he is), when was the beginning? How far back does he go?

I have understood that if we routinely traveled near the speed of light, we would understand that time slows because we would experience it, and we would understand that space becomes blended into time.

Einstein called it, space time. Everything is happening in ‘space time.’ We are told the past, present, and future are equally as real and almost have no distinction in space time.

Unfortunately, everything will die one day. All matter will disintegrate. Every structure, proton, everything you see (and experience) will one day be no more. I have been studying Brian Greene’s book, ‘Until the End of Time.’ He’s a world-famous physicist.

This is how he explains it: he compares the floors of the Empire State Building to time. Everything from the Big Bang until today takes us to about floor 10, but exponentially far into the future of the building, everything will disintegrate. But there are key things that happen along the way.

With the final floor, at the peak of the Empire State building–the universe is just left with a bath of particles floating through the darkness. All structure will disintegrate. Entropy will win. There will be nothing but particles in the void.

In my next post, I plan to write about the Boltzmann Brain, or the new form of a “Big Bang,” so to speak. So stay tuned for that. It’s never over because God is eternal.

As Brian Green explains it, ‘There will be pockets of order that can reform.’ If you’re interested, I have attached the video that will explain all this more! https://youtu.be/xwYvmlr_wBIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwYvmlr_wBI

String Theory Explains Everything!🎆🌎🪐

Did you know that scientists have come up with one unified theory to explain EVERYTHING? It’s called string theory, and it proves that everything in the universe is made up of tiny strings (EVERYTHING from the tiniest particle to the most distant star), and they replace the traditional sub-atomic particles like protons, neutrons, corks, and electrons. These strings are vibrating strands of energy! Just like a cello gives rise to musical notes, the vibrations in string theory make up all the constituents of nature.

It is where everything operates in the smallest of scales. God made the universe to be a symphony of vibrating strings.🎵🎶 Everything is in harmony! This theory suggests that there are multiple dimensions and parallel universes as well.🌗🪐 There could be other worlds right next door to us that are invisible.👀 What used to seem like science fiction is not so far-fetched anymore. It is all thanks to this new theory developed in the last twenty years. It’s an area of physics🌠 different from anything we’ve ever known!🌌

We are just one ‘slice’ in a loaf of bread 🍞 and there is no beginning and end. The Big Bang could’ve happened when two of these universes🌙🌚 collided. These tiny strands (strings)🎵🎶 are changing our ideas of everything we know about the universe, especially about the nature of space. And this theory is still in its infancy stages! Long before Einstein, physicists were on this quest for unification. They have resolved it!

Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light💡💫⚡️ (based on Einstein’s proven, theory of relativity). Einstein said that space is not static, it can warp and stretch and that there can even be wormholes (bridges or tunnels, cosmic shortcuts). But to create a wormhole, there has got to be a rip or hole in the fabric of space. Can the fabric of space really rip? According to string theory, it can!

Space can rip. If we could shrink down to a billionth of our normal size, we would enter the world of Quantum mechanics. Everything is chaotic there. Rips and tears in the universe are common. So one may ask, what would cause them from causing a cosmic catastrophe? Well, the strings calm the chaos. As they dance through space, they sweep out a tube, a protective shield with profound implications.

Strings make it possible for space to rip. Space is far more dynamic and changeable then even Einstein knew! One certain thing, string theory is already showing us the universe is a lot stranger than any of us ever imagined. We are surrounded by hidden dimensions. What we think of as our universe is just one small part of something bigger. There are entire worlds🎑 right next door to us!

This is how we know that ‘anything is possible.’ There is no need to be upset about any outcome. What doesn’t’ happen here, will happen in another universe. Everything is possible. This theory suggests that it is strings that we are made up of. Strings are versatile. They vibrate and dance in different patterns creating all of nature. Put them all together and we get a grand symphony called our ‘universe.’🎵🎶☁️ God is creating something beautiful!

Are you aware that you are made from stardust? It’s true.🌟✨💫

Science has been proving it for decades. We are made from the very same elements that stars⭐️ are, these elements are called, CHNOPS, or carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur. ‘Humans and their galaxy🌌, The Milky Way, have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms,’ according to Space.com. Both humans and stars are a byproduct of the Big Bang!💥

Did you also know that light⚡️ is everything? Take a look at Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, it teaches us that the speed of light is constant and nothing is faster! God is light, according to the Bible, and he created it! Light can travel around the earth🌏 7.5 times in one second! Space-time🪐 adjusts to light, and we are a part of it.

The closer you get to the speed of light, the more time slows. That is because God is Eternal!☄️ With him there is no time at all. God cannot change. He stays the same. Yesterday. Today. And Forever.

Scientists have even proven that there are multiverses🪐, meaning, the Big Bang💥 has happened more than once. These findings should not challenge your faith, they should strengthen it. We are the only evidence of life. There are at least a hundred billion galaxies🌌, with each galaxy containing at least a hundred billion stars🌟 in it! God is not limited, neither is his grace or vastness.

He created the heavens and earth💨, also. Some Christians like to argue how old the earth is. Based on fact, we know it is millions, actually billions of years old. The universe is 13.8 billion years old. Science and the Book of Genesis correlate.

To reject science is to reject God in a way because he created it! The sun ☀️ is 9.8 billion years old, and humans came last. We could be around a few hundred thousand years old (that is my guess).

God is timeless, it is proven through Einstein’s theory of relativity, again. His ‘clock’ is not like ours. The theory of relativity proves that the speed of light causes it to have such an enormous mass, that time slows until it stops. It is eternity! A million years to you is nothing for God.

There is also this theory of entanglement in Physics. Entanglement means two particles can be separated (and no matter where they are, they can be light⚡️years away), they still imitate one another. The two particles will resemble and even behave the same way. Technically, we are ‘particles,’ according to Physics.

You see, the two particles are entangled. And entanglement makes up so much of the universe🪐. It is all over it. This is why physicists believe we can be here and ‘there’ at the same time. They are not sure where ‘there’ is. But they believe we may have parallel universes🌌.

We are entangled with Christ and are living with him. “Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him (Romans 6:8-9).’

The Bible continues… ‘The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God’ (Romans 6:10). We are made in his image.🙏
