Dear God, thank you!❤️

Dear God, you have been there all my life. I understand you better now than I have before. You are awesome, indeed. Words can’t describe how amazing you are. No adjective is big enough. Your love endures the test of time because you are timeless. There is no man made clock for you. Thus, I am timeless too. So glad I get to spend eternity with you. Your love is enough even though I’ve complained a lot while on earth. Thank you for loving me, forgiving me, and always taking me back. Thank you for being my God.♥️💜💞

Religion and Science⚛️

Many religious people push back on science and physics ideas in fear of accepting something that may go against the Bible. Most Christians are afraid to admit the idea of a Big Bang, or they never even study it, for example. But due to microwave background radiation, we know it existed, among many other reasons.

Not all physicists are atheists or non-religious; as a matter of fact, many are open to the idea of there being a God or even Jesus. Many Christians are not open to all the theories of physics, though. We have to understand that religion isn’t supposed to give us all the information about the universe. It cannot replace scientific research.

The Big Bang theory says that 13.8 billion years ago, this tiny little microscopic point in space generated so much energy, and it went bang! God created light! Then, 13.8 billion years later, humans are created. We are the last thing made in the Book of Genesis also. The sun was formed about 9.2 billion years after the Big Bang!

If you divide 9.2 into 13.8, you have precisely 2/3. So the fraction is 2/3 from light, our sun was created (and as you know, 2/3 is equal to 4/6). So 2/3 and 4/6 are the same fractions. Moses wrote in the Book of Genesis and said, ‘Light was created the first day.’ He says the last thing created were human beings.

Of course, Moses uses the term ‘6 days,’ and the Big Bang uses billions of years. But both agree on the beginning and the end. Moses also says the sun was created on the 4th day of a six-day creation cycle. So there you have it, 4/6. Again, the sun was created and matches perfectly mathematically with the Big Bang Theory.

In many places in the Bible, we are told that God is light. ‘God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.’ Did you know that the speed of light moves at a rate so fast with such an enormous mass that everything around it starts to slow? Light is eternal. Not only did God create it, but he is light as well.

We are told that we are made in His likeness and image. The neat thing is, the Big Bang was not even the beginning. Space-time existed before the Big Bang ever happened is what the world’s greatest physicists tell us. Again, that’s because God is eternal. He has no beginning and end.

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.💕

Time and Light!✨💫☀️

Did you know that time slows down and becomes very pronounced when approached by the speed of light? The speed of light is faster than anything in the world. Light can circle the earth 7.5 times in one second. At a rate that moves so fast, with such an enormous mass, everything around it starts to slow.

The Bible tells us that God is light in several places. “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5). In another place in the Bible, Jesus says, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness but will have the Light of life.”

“The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end” (Isaiah 60:19-20).

“Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart,” is also written. Time slows down when the speed of light approaches it because God is light, and he created it. With God, there is no time. He is eternal.

Time is relative. It is not the same ‘for all observers,’ is how physicists put it. It’s why we have different time zones. What ‘time’ is it in your part of the world? Different intervals of time can be different depending upon where you are and how you’re moving.

A million years to God is nothing…

We occupy our space until our ‘time’ is finished. Twenty, thirty, or forty years can come and go in the blink of an eye. What do you want to accomplish here?

Live every day like it’s your last, and take advantage of the ‘time’ you have.
