With God All Things Are Possible♥️

It’s true. In an eternal universe such as the one we’re in not only is anything possible, but if you wait long enough ‘it’s probable,’ said the world-renowned physicist and NY Times best-selling author, Brain Greene. You see not only can ANYTHING happen. If you wait long enough your dreams can come true (if they already haven’t). What this means is ALL those things you thought will never happen can come to fruition before your eyes👀. It’ll even leave you thinking, ‘How did this happen?’ Stay motivated. Work hard. Never give up. Anything (allowed within the Laws of Physics) can happen to you! You would be surprised by just how much God wants to happen in your life! He is ALL giving, ALL knowing, and loves each of us as if we’re the only ones!❤️

Some things you may want to know, Part 5!

In the next one hundred years things will change. Jobs of the future will change. Five hundred years from now there may even be time travel. Teleportation! We NOW can see actual thoughts as they are generated inside the living brain through an MRI, and it is a wonderful advancement.

We can even “upload” memories. Next, it will be in Alzheimer’s patients. There will be a brain “memory” chip. A patient will push the chip and remember their address, where they are, the names of relatives, etc. One day, we may even have something like “The Matrix.” Have you ever felt like life may be an illusion? I know I have. According to Michio Kaku, world famous physicist, this is perfectly normal.

The great physicists have questioned that life is an illusion before, or that time is an illusion for that matter. It is because there is no difference between past, present, and future in space time. The future has already happened. We just don’t know it. Why do you think there is a competition by the world’s richest billionaires to go to space? They dream and hope for us to even “colonize” there. Michio, again, says that idea is not far fetched. We will be long gone by the time it happens, though.

For example, weddings may even happen on the moon. Can you imagine? It is a three day trip. Elon Musk is now creating his own moon rockets through his billion dollar enterprise, SpaceX. Elon is one of the richest men in the world! If not THE richest. Jeff Bezos, through his Blue Origin company, just made a trip to space recently! He is the founder of Amazon and former CEO.

You may ask why? Why bother to leave the earth anyway? We are defenseless against meteor impacts. We are defenseless at times due to mother nature. Take a look at the recent hurricanes. Lives lost in New York, flooding, etc. You see, Michio says, the dinosaurs did not have a space program 65,000,000 plus years ago when they became extinct. That is why they are not here today. Lol

75,000 years ago there was a cataclysmic event called the ‘Toba volcano’ event that lasted ten long years! Humans almost became extinct. We’ve been around a long time. It’s why we’re developing outer space programs, again, says Michio.:-)

Apparently, there are three types of alien life that potentially exist (I believe they do); they are different types of “life” who occupy planets or get their energy from stars. I believe we are a ‘young planet,’ again, and physics has confirmed it. If we weren’t, we’d be a Type 1. We would modify the weather: hurricanes, and earthquakes. What’s happening now–the flooding wouldn’t be a problem.

While watching this special I am referring to with Michio Kaku, I also learned: Type 2 would be stellar or use/work around the power of the stars like in Star Trek. Type three would be Galactic. They would be a Star Wars type and travel from planet to planet. Again, I think they’re out there. As a matter of fact, I know they are because I’ve had a dream/vision. Well, I should call it a “visit.” I’ve had a visit. I won’t get into it too much, but I will write about it in a later post. I have already written on it a few times.

Many Christians believe we are living in the “end times.” In my opinion, they often misinterpret the Book of Revelations, especially with their whole “Rapture” idea. One person will be taken; one person will be left. It sounds bizarre in my opinion. I am a Christian, but I tend to be more progressive in my thinking. As one of my favorite authors/pastors put it: “We pray for heaven to come down on EARTH.” We won’t be taken up in the “sky.” It will happen here. That is why we have to take care of our planet and animal kingdom.

We are lacking in this area. I am going to attach the video of Greg Boyd, he’s a New York Times Best selling author, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoWHzuYF798

I hope you enjoy it! It explains why the Rapture is a bad idea and how to accurately interpret some of those confusing passage in scripture.

Lastly, I want to add that one of my favorite physicists, Briane Greene, says the world won’t end for a long time. There have always been hurricanes and wars. There have even been PANDEMICS; even though it’s been a while. But it doesn’t mean it is the end. Brian has said that the universe will probably be destroyed once entropy has it’s way. The universe may keep expanding and the expansion may be too much, or the sun may even swallow the earth up in five billion years or so.

Brian admits it can happen sooner. God can do anything. We don’t know when the world will end. We can just do our best to enjoy every day and take life as it comes. We can try to overcome pain and do our best to be happy!

Some things you may want to know, Part 4!

On average, EVERY single star🌟 has a planet🪐 going around it. One fifth of them have an “earth”🌍 sized planet going around it. How many galaxies✨ are there? There are about a hundred billion galaxies with a hundred billion STARS in EACH one! Do you really think we are alone? In this lifetime, we have already picked up signals.🛸

If there are alien life forms (I believe there are), there are three types. I will explain. But of course first we would want to decipher their language. So, a type one civilization is capable of harnessing planetary🪐 power. They would manage or modify the weather: earthquakes, hurricanes💨, etc. Type 2 would be stellar⭐️. They would play with stars and use the energy out put of a star like in Star Trek! Type three would be galactic: they would roam the galactic space lanes like in Star Wars!☄️

There are planets, stars, and galaxies (and we are made of the same elements that stars are🌠), and that’s it. Most of the universe is made up of dark energy. It’s the energy of ‘nothing.’ It’s a result of the “Big Bang” or Big event when God said, “Let there be light💫.” There was no “bang” because there were no air molecules; thus, there was no noise at that time. Quantum physicists don’t believe the “big event” happened only once. They believe in the multi-verse theory and that we are living in a cosmic bubble with multiple universes as a result of multiple “let there be lights💫.”

Our universe had a beginning, but there are other bubble universes out there that are expanding beyond our three dimensional comprehension. It is hyper space; it is eleven dimensional hyper space. String theorists tell us. The Big “event” is nothing but the collision of universes, according to Michio Kaku (famous world renowned physicist). String theory teaches that inside the “nucleus,” which we once thought was the tiniest particle, is a tiny heart string♥️. God created these tiny heart strings that vibrate and EVERYTHING is made up of this “heart” string. God created a symphony🎶!

Einstein didn’t believe in a personal God; he believe in a God defined as a “God of Spinoza.” God as a singular self-subsistent substance, with both matter and thought being attributes of such. He believed that God was orderly and that God is organized and not random. On a single sheet of paper we can write all the known Laws of the universe. He believed God is beautiful. We can write down Einstein’s equation (one inch long) and string theory is a lot longer, but you can write it all on one piece of paper. The PURPOSE of science✳️ is to determine how the heavens go: the purpose of religion is to figure out how to go to heaven, says Michio!

By the way, I believe in a personal God. The one who parted the Red Sea. I believe in Jesus Christ. His son. I believe in the Holy Trinity. At the same time, I believe that God is orderly, organized, beautiful and amazing. In a way, I believe Holy Father is like a “God of Spinoza.” I also believe that God is all loving and that he loves unconditionally. I don’t focus on condemnation. I believe God is omnipresent (he can be everywhere all at once!).

I believe he is awesome! I believe that “mind can’t contain” as the bible says, “what the Lord has prepared.” I also believe that if there are aliens it doesn’t mean God loves us any less. My God is big enough to love me as if I’m the only one here! You know what I mean? God’s love is not limited by how massive his universe(s) are. We are intelligent beings. God created us. We are his children. We are made to rule over creatures of the land and sea. We are brought to consciousness and may feel like we have free will.

I believe we do to some degree. Some physicists would also argue that everything is in cosmic order and that “free will” is more of an illusion. I believe that God is the greatest Chess player. He knows every way that something can go. He has a plan for even when we fail. That is the way that the famous pastor, Greg Boyd, explained it.

Robots are getting smarter and smarter. They are about as smart as a cockroach. In the coming years, they may become as smart as a cat or a dog. If they ever become as smart as monkeys they may become dangerous. Aliens from out in space can be genetically and cybernetically advanced, according to Micho Kaku! And…the “chip,” folks…will be made for Alzheimer’s patients. It will NOT be made for us. I mean, it WON’T be in the Covid 19 vaccine! Lol🤣

To learn more about these topics, I recommend you watch this video. My notes are based off this podcast I watched with Lex Fridman and Michio Kaku (world renowned physicist, professor, and author!). Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5yc1LQrpQ

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!

Is there other ‘life’ out there? (Part 2)

You may recall this oblong rocklike object found flying in space by astronauts looking through NASA’s telescope. When people studied the trajectory of this object (it was not a comet or an asteroid!), it was the size of a football field and flew past the sun. Some astronauts believe it could’ve been sent to us from alien life, so we know they exist. It definitely came from another galaxy. When people studied it, they found that it was not a comet or an asteroid through evidence. This is not your “grandfather’s comet.” So scientists asked themselves, what if this object IS from another planet. They realized if you had a type of EXO planet, and if a piece of it got knocked off, it would appear like this rocklike object. It doesn’t seem to be some form of extraterrestrial life. I’ve had a vision before. I had a dream that two UFOs visited me, and they looked nothing like this. They were glowing, peaceful, and looked like spaceships. They did not look like a rocklike feature, but they looked very beautiful. I can’t quite explain them or find a photo that is fitting enough. But they came to visit me in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. I believe people were in there, or aliens, I should say. And when I ‘woke up,’ it did not feel like a dream at all. As a matter of fact, I remember feeling myself getting up out of bed to look out the window. In my opinion, if there is extraterrestrial life out there–and I believe there may be, especially due to this experience, I think they are more like us than we realize. I say that because all of the universe(s) follow the same laws of physics, so I imagine that the ‘beings’ on another (potential) planet where this life would be are more like us than we know. However, they would be way more advanced. Brian Greene, world famous author and physicist, has confirmed that if there is other life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead! We are a new planet. A new earth. Physics even tells us, in an eternal universe, anything can happen. This universe is eternal. And the more scientists learn that this universe could very well be infinite, almost with certainty, the greater the chances that we are not the only ones here. We are not the only ones in the universe(s), in my opinion. It’s the magic of math. The greater the universe expands (we know it is increasingly getting larger), the more galaxies there are (100-200 billion) that we have noted so far. The greater the chance there is “other life” out there. I believe my dream was more of a vision because I felt it was so real when I woke up. I think I was visited. They are out there. They are harmless. They know God as Holy Father, and even Jesus. They don’t necessarily follow our values or have our cultural taboos, but they are peaceful and kind.

Some things you may want to know, Part 3☀️🐰🌙🌌🌸🎂🌏

The sun☀️ is the brightest space🌌 object in the sky. Sometimes it’s so bright, you can see the sun and moon at the same time in the day.🌅 As the day progresses, the sun grows and gets higher in the sky.

The sun commands so much. Not only seasons, but how much daylight we get🌞 and to what hemisphere on earth we get it. The earth’s tilt has a big say, and really helps determine (in conjunction with the sun😎) whether it’s warm or cool.

Plants🍃 and animals🐰grow in the sunny seasons (spring and summer🌼). Some animals🐕 even hibernate and save food for the winter during summer months.

The sun is at the center of our solar system. Long gone are the days when people believed the earth is at the center🌍. We have known for several centuries that the sun is at the center.

At first, many did not want to believe it, but than it was accepted—thanks to Nicolaus Copernicus in the 1500s who made the discovery.

The earth🌏 rotates one time every 24 hours. We are spinning while rotating, although you can’t feel it. But it’s why it appears that the sun🌄 is moving.

But really, the sun cannot move, it is us, the earth, who are moving! It takes the earth 365 days to rotate once around the sun—a birthday!🎂🎈

The night sky is dark. There is no light from the sun; however, the moonlight🌖 is basically light from the sun that is reflecting upon the moon. What I mean is, we wouldn’t be able to see the moon if it weren’t for the sun☀️. At night🎆, you can see planets—objects that move around the sun.

Did you know the sun is a star🌟? It’s true. Actually, there is more stardust✨ in the universe than you realize. We, too, are made from stardust. Our bodies contain the same elements that stars⭐️ do. Everything came from the “Big Bang,” or “Big event🎇,” that happened 13.8 billion years ago.

And, no, there was no loud noise or “bang” as some may think there was. There were no air molecules at that time. God said, “Let there be light💫,” and there was light. That’s all.😃😍👏

Don’t wait until tomorrow, do it today!

The sun is the most beautiful commodity in the world, but we are told that 5 billion years from now, the sun may swallow up the earth. The sun may expand, and its heat may be more than we can take. Dinosaurs became extinct more than 65,000,000 years ago due to an asteroid, but asteroids may not be our problem. Entropy itself will win one day, and everything will come to an end. I mean, everything. I’m not telling you this to discourage you but to make you realize that life is finite. Nothing lasts forever. All buildings, structures, planets, black holes, and even protons will be destroyed. We are told by Brian Greene, best-selling author, professor, and physicist that this will happen at about ten to the sixty-eighth. Imagine that right now are at ten to the tenth, so it won’t be for a long time from now. But it actually can happen sooner, he says. We don’t know when. The universe is expanding, and one day that expansion may be too much. My point in telling you this is to remind you that we are here temporarily. What we do now makes a difference because if it’s not happening now, it may never happen. That’s why I want to encourage you to take that step, whatever it is, for the better to make that dream happen. Whether it’s starting a business or traveling. There is always something we aspire to do. Each of us have at least one thing we want to accomplish. Work on it now. And watch it come to fruition. All we have is today. Why wait until tomorrow?

Some things you may want to know, Part 2🪐

The most obvious thing about the world is if you drop something, it falls. That is the force of gravity in action. God doesn’t keep secrets. This Law of Gravity is what drove Isaac Newton to discover how the universe works. But the question is if you drop something, will it ALWAYS fall back down? Not necessarily. If the force is strong enough, the object could escape the earth’s gravity and go out into space. It’s called escape velocity. But let’s change our focus for a moment here. What is a black hole? It’s the opposite. A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. It’s a star that has exploded (a big one). However, black holes will one day dissipate. Along with everything else. Everything you see will be destroyed. Every structure. Every building. Every proton. Even us! This world will not last forever. However, there will be a rebirth–at that time–particles will form in the ‘void.’ And since all we are is “particles” according to physics, that means everything that you see now will be destroyed. Don’t fret too much about it though. Brian Greene, world-famous physicist and author of “Until the End of Time,” says it won’t happen until ten to the sixty-eighth. Now, it has been almost 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang, or “Big event,” that happened that began everything–but everything will disappear at ten to the sixty-eighth years. Imagine that right now; we are at ten to the tenth. There is a chance into this far future that the earth can be sucked into a black hole. Most things in the cosmos will get sucked into black holes. The earth may be swallowed up by the sun in about 5 billion years, though, even sooner than that. The sun will eat up Mercury and Venus and maybe the earth also, we don’t know.

Here is the video I watched that I based this post off of. This was a course that Brian Green taught for the same company I teach for:

Everything will be swallowed up!🎇🪐☀️

It has been said that the sun can ‘burn out’ or swallow up all the entire earth in about 5 billion years! That’s not that far away, considering dinosaurs became extinct due to an asteroid 65,000,000+ years ago. Either way, one day, entropy will have its way, and everything you see will die. Every building, every structure, everything in the universe(s), even black holes! We are a universe that is expanding! But one day, that expansion may be too much! When God said, ‘Let there be light,’ there was light. And there wasn’t a ‘bang’ as some of you may think there was because there was no noise at that time. There were no air molecules. But when God said, ‘let there be light,’ he created everything you see today, including you and me! We are stardust. We are made from the same elements stars are! My point in telling you this is not to discourage you but to advise you to live your life one day at a time. Enjoy all the days of your life while you’re here. Leave your mark in the world.✨🔆🌸💫🌇✳️☀️❇️

There are many worlds!🌌🪐🌠

You can understand Quantum Mechanics. Quantum Mechanics is necessary to understand why the sun shines, for example. Quantum mechanics is necessary to understand so much in the world! The most significant discovery of the twentieth century was that the electron is a wave.

By 1909, we discovered that the electron is again, a wave, it’s how you see light–through vibrating electrons. It is not a point particle in an orbit, it’s a wave. The electron can be a wave and a particle. It’s shape becomes spread out. It can look like a spherical wave; however, you never see the electron coming out in any area.

The electron goes back to looking like it’s a point again. But electrons can be different when you’re looking at them from when you’re not looking at them. Really, they are all spread out in wave functions when you’re not looking at them, but when you look at them they look like particles.

Is that your eyes playing tricks on you? Where does the electron go? Which one is reality? The wave function represents reality.

We are Quantum Systems ourselves. So it is not easy for a Quantum System to understand another Quantum System. We are ALL in the Quantum World. YOU obey the laws of Quantum Mechanics.

Plus, there is this thing called entanglement. Every particle (electron) has a duplicate. It may spin a different direction, but both particles behave the same way and even look the same. You see, even if they are spinning in opposite directions: they are the same. The reason the electron changes when you look at it is because you are a duplicate.

Even the famous Higgs Boson particle has a duplicate. You see, all particles are entangled. Everything is basically, entangled. YOU are entangled. Try to wrap your brain around that. This used to even spook Einstein out.

So, how are there duplicates of everything in the universe? Are there parallel universes? Now, physicists say there could be assimilation and even copies of yourself out there. How do you sleep at night and not wonder what the other ‘you’ is doing right now ?

What doesn’t happen in this universe, will happen in the other. I recommend you download the app, Universe splitter, it sends your message to a real lab in Geneva, Switzerland that emits a photon, and splits the universe to make a prediction for you.

You are in two different states of environment whether you feel it or not. Don’t try to wrap your head around this, that there are two of you, in different ‘worlds.’ It’s sometimes called the many worlds interpretation.

We don’t know how many worlds there are out there, we don’t even know if they are finite or infinite. We don’t know for sure that there are an infinite number of worlds. But even if they’re finite, its a really big number of worlds!

Instead of stressing over the fact that there are many worlds, know that once you learned that electrons could be in a super position, you learned that people could be in superpositions too.

So, the electron can go jumping into different parts of the ‘wave,’ and so can you! Well, I don’t lose sleep over that information. Instead, it fascinates me because I know that I am made in the image and likeness of Him; thus, I experience what ‘he’ experiences.

We feel the same things. We share. We are duplicates. We are entangled [with Christ]! The Bible says we are entangled whether or not we realize it.

God’s love is BIG enough to love only us!

The multi-verse theory is more than you can imagine. Picture a trillion trillion+ other universes. If there is a vast multiverse with all sorts of things going on, the likelihood of ‘other life’ out there becomes higher, says Sean Carroll, world-renowned physicist, and mathematician. I think they’re out there, and they know God. I mean God, the Holy Father, and Jesus.


Famous physicist Brian Greene says, “If there is alien life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead of us!” So, why would they care about little old us? Well, if other life does exist, it may be so far away and so much more advanced to even care about us or what we’re doing here.


The probability that the multiverse theory is true is based on data. If there are many different ‘regions of space,’ life can exist in these sub-places. What is the probability that this is true? It’s high. It’s based on math. Mathematical principles tend to drive physics.


String theory says that the Laws of Physics can be different from place to place. But we don’t know if that is true for sure. However, the multiverse is very sensible to consider. Because God exists, life exists. Without God, there would be no life on earth or potentially anywhere for that matter.


Atheists don’t see a God who can be a caring or loving being that has a place set up for us, the afterlife. Few scientists especially cannot accept this. I’ve heard that if there was a God, why would he hide himself? But God is not hiding. He is all around.


We can see him in nature. We can see him in each other. We can adhere to his voice. We can say our prayers. We can find his inspiration from reading the Bible. He talks to us through our intuition. If it is good, pure, right, and whole; it is from the Lord. When God is involved, there is no doubt or shadow of turning.


I’ve heard the argument that if there were a God, entropy still would be the same way it was (low) as in the ‘early universe.’ What people don’t understand, though, is that God is perfect. He doesn’t have to make sense.


I’ve watched a demonstration of a Hubble space telescope in Sean Carroll’s talk that discusses all the galaxies with each having a hundred billion stars, and he says that none of them are necessary for us to exist on earth. So, why are they there?

Sean tends to think that we can’t argue that God would put them there for us to exist. Because they can be there with or without us, that is true. We are very tiny compared to a vast universe, now we suspect, universes. So, why would God make us? He doesn’t need to make ALL that to make us.

Why wouldn’t God only make our home the Milky Way? God’s love for us in a multiverse with a trillion trillion-plus universes is BIG enough to love just ‘us.’

His love is BIG enough to choose us. It may be big enough to love ‘others,’ perhaps, out there. Regardless, God’s love is BIG enough to not only love just ‘us.’ It is big enough for God to love ONLY you, all by yourself!

All Things Are Possible

I just learned by listening to Sean Carroll that I am an eternalist. I am not a presentist. I don’t believe that we have only ‘now.’ An eternalist understands Einstein’s theory of relativity and that there is really no such thing as ‘now.’ Time is not ‘the same for all observers.’ I believe in that. It’s one of the reasons we have different ‘time zones.’ I experience it every day while working with people. It’s a fact. A lot of my clients are on Pacific time where it’s still sunny there while the sun is coming down here. An eternalist also believes that the universe is 4 dimensional and may be a hologram kind of imitating the movie, ‘Star Wars.’ If you’ve followed my science posts before, you may have read my articles on the holographic principle. The latest theory definitely proves that we feel as though we are on a 3 Dimensional surface, but it very well could be a 2 dimensional grid. What people don’t understand is that God is the greatest computer design we could ever have. Some people tend to think of God as the big man with the white beard whose very old and waiting to scold them! God is modern, though. God is scientific. He can do anything! Just take a look at galaxies, systems that stand alone made up of trillions of stars! And there are at least 100 billion of them that we’ve seen so far! God did that. He is more than you can fathom. Do I believe there is no such thing as now and that the past, present, and future are equally real in space-time as the theory of relativity suggests? You bet! Do I believe that the universe is eternal and 4 dimensional? Even though it feels like a three dimension? Sure, why not? Do I even believe that the entire universe (now believed to be maybe even made up of parallel universes), could be a hologram? Yes, because with God, ALL things are possible! And I mean ALL things!🌌☀️🎑🌈🌗🎇🌙✨💓🎈🌊🐈🕊⚛️

Quantum Physics🎆

Did you know that you are technically considered a “particle?” It’s true. ‘We are nothing more than a spec,’ says The Science Guy, Bill Nye. Quantum mechanics proves that it’s true. Quantum mechanics involves breaking ‘things’ down to their tiniest parts.

We are basically particles, as a matter of fact, we are waves, try to wrap your head around that for a moment. A particle is a wave. We learned that after the famous, ‘double slit experiment.’ There are many worlds.

I’ll tell you why. A particle is a wave, or an electron (you), and you can pop up into any part of a ‘wave.’ Back to what I’ve talked about before, there is more than one choice or route you can take and what doesn’t happen in one universe, can happen in another.

For example, in one universe, you may decide to become a nurse. In another universe, you may not. But you would never know because you cannot communicate with ‘that’ other universe.

It’s called entanglement. The two particles (electrons) can be on different ends of the earth. One can be in Los Angeles and one in New York. But they will imitate each other and even behave the same way.

Before you get spooked out by this idea that there could be another ‘you’ in another world, keep in mind, physicists tell us to live as though you are only living in this one!

Actually, in an infinite universe, such as the one we’re in, there can be copies of you out there being made right now. This supports the idea of string theory and that there may be multiple universes.

The Bible tells us we are made in his image and likeness and thus, entangled with Christ! There’s another version of you out there (in Jesus🙏).❤️⚛️

Don’t give up!

As I gaze upon this beautiful photo, I think of our eternal universe and all the possibilities there are in life. And I struggle. I’ll tell you why. The greatest physicists say that we are in an eternal universe and anything is possible. As a matter of fact, not only can anything happen—every rare thing will happen in this life. The Bible tells us in several places that with God, all things are possible. Not with man, but with God, ‘these things are possible.’ In a world devoid of hope at times. It’s hard to feel hope or that the ‘thing’ you’ve been waiting for can happen. However, in an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, it can! Here God and physics align! However, it has to be compatible with the Law of Physics. There is a cosmic order. God is still in control, and while he doesn’t allow everything—he will enable more than we realize. That thing you’ve been waiting for can happen. Don’t give up!

The Sun Is a Star 😎🌠

The sun is amazing. It’s a star. All suns are stars and vice versa. As a matter of fact, our bodies are even made of the same elements that stardust is made of. What makes our solar system unique is we only have one sun in it, though. Most solar systems have two or more suns in them. Can you imagine if we had two suns? Our sun’s gravity pulls the earth closer to it, constantly. God is like gravity. He’s pulling us closer to the son and holding us together. “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:17). NIV.☀️😎🌞🌅🔆🌟✨💫

We are entangled💜

String theory tells us there can be multiple universes and that the Big Bang may have occurred many times. If an electron is present in Los Angeles, for example, it can also be present in New York. It will be an identical particle that will look and even behave in the same manner. The particles can be on opposite ends of the earth, but they will still act in the same way. Another name for this phenomenon is entanglement. Einstein used to call it ‘spooky action at a distance.’ This is why the latest physicists now believe there may be multiverses and even assimilation, ‘copies’ of ourselves. We know that the Bible tells us: ‘For Christ’s love compels us because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again (2 Cor. 5:14-15).’ We are ‘entangled’ with Christ. The Bible also says that in heaven, Christ “will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body” (Philippians 3:21). We are made in his image and likeness.⚛️🙏🎇✨☀️☦️💖🌙

Everything is in Cosmic Order 🎇✨⚛️

The universe is an interesting place. Everything is in cosmic order. That’s not to say we don’t have a ‘say’ or choices in what happens in our lives. But we do not control everything. Ultimately, God is in control. The more we learn to trust him, the better off we will be. Some imagine God to act as a significant obstacle stopping us from promotion at times. I hate when people say, ‘Why God, why?’ It is a pet peeve of mine. God is the opposite of what they think. He wants to see our dreams happen. We can be co-workers with God, but we have to do our part. We can’t be stagnant and expect him to do everything, nor can we blame him when things don’t go the way we would like. Part of being an adult is realizing that we can’t have everything we want in this life. We can work towards goals and try to accomplish them. But ultimately, God is the one in the driver’s seat. He wants what’s best for us and to see us happy.❤️

A new earth 🌍

Good morning, friends. One day everything will be swallowed up by entropy. Every building, every structure, everything you see (including us) will come to an end. There will be no such thing as thought itself. Thought itself will be swallowed up by life. This is predicted to happen far into the future, but anything can happen, so it could happen sooner. I don’t mean to sound so dim. Our mortality is real. Fortunately, in the Book of Revelation, John has a vision while on the island of Patmos, and we are told that he saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. He wrote that he saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully adorned for her husband. We are taught by physics that once there is nothing left other than some particles forming in the void, there can be a ‘reforming’ of particles. All we are is particles brought to consciousness, quarks, neutrinos, protons, etc. In an eternal universe, life repeats itself.☀️🖤⚛️🌅🏞🌠🦒

God Is Able!

We sometimes go through hardship; I’d like to offer you some advice if you areI can now work out for well over an hour at the gym, and I don’t even recall envisioning it. I mean, I never dreamt I would be able to run on an elliptical. I imagined I was walking on a walker at sixteen after my accident and suffering paralysis, but using an elliptical has been a huge success.

My point is, God will take you even further than what you’ve dreamt. He has the capability. It’s a far stretch from where I was while in the hospital! I imagined myself walking even when I couldn’t sit for more than a minute. And now, all these years later, running on an elliptical?

Having faith has so much to do with what we envision. We don’t always realize that; sometimes, we think that having faith comes only through what we hear or learn. But faith comes through what we envision; imagination is a powerful tool, and what we dream up can become manifest.

I’ve been able to accomplish this because I envisioned it as a teenager. I expected it. We can see God through our imagination. I’ve heard from a famous pastor that it’s the closest we will ever get to seeing him while we’re here. Seeing God can be real if we stop rejecting him.

We reject seeing him because society teaches us that if we use our imagination, we are silly. Culture teaches us that as humans we are limited. Sometimes images just come to me while I’m praying. I see specs of light often, even rays of light I have seen before. Objects sometimes shake or rattle. I always saw this as God’s way of telling me his angels are near. I have heard God’s voice from deep within instructing me and even tell me what to do in critical moments.

It’s why my faith has been bigger than my fear.

I have studied physics for a year and a half, 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 of atoms that can never die. All of this is true.

The Theory of entanglement holds true. 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,’ so there is the entanglement. Every human being has already ‘died’ because when One died, all died,’ the Bible tells 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. In space-time, there is no distinction.

Everyone should search and find. 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. The two particles can be on opposite sides of the universe, but they will behave the same way.’ It is entanglement.

I can also accept all of this because I know how amazing God is. It doesn’t challenge my faith, it makes it stronger!

God Is for Us!✨


It’s true. I’m sure if you think back or not even too far back. There were times where he’s the only one that’s been there for you. Friendships may fail. Loved ones will disappoint, but God will never leave you. That is not to say you get everything you want in life. Some people have this misconception about the Lord. They believe that a loving God would never allow any adversity or for them to have any hardship; what people fail to understand is that there is growth in the suffering. It usually lasts for a season, but it helps you develop. The universe doesn’t have to adhere to us. It was never meant to be that way from the beginning. There is a cosmic order, and while that doesn’t mean you don’t have a say in what happens in your life, you have to be patient. God is working for us whether we realize it or not. He knows what’s best. We have to trust. At the same time, we have to work together with him to make our dreams happen. Nothing worthwhile comes easy, and sometimes the road is curvy. But if you have faith, persist, and never give up, you will win. God knows the desires of your heart, and he wants you to have them. Paul’s words in his epistle to the Romans are among the most quoted in the Bible: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).💕

Bible Study (session #1)

Below are some of the scriptures we covered today about ‘the end of the world.’

Luke 21:11 ESV

“There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

Matthew 24:32-36 ESV

“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. ‘But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.’”

Matthew 24:42-44 ESV

“Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Revelation 21:1-27 ESV

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’ And he who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ Also he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’” …

What does science say: when entropy reaches a low enough state, everything will start to disintegrate: every building, every structure, even protons will be destroyed. But that won’t happen for a long time from now. It would be comparable to the floors of the Empire State Building. Let’s imagine it won’t happen until we get to the top! However, in an eternal universe such as the one we are in, anything can happen. The world can ‘end’ at any given time. Again, keep in mind we are in an eternal universe though. So even after the scientific or pre-scientific destruction, particles will begin to ‘reform’ through a physics theory known as the Boltzmann Brain. Basically, we are ‘particles’ caught up in human form. The Boltzmann brain will be a single brain that can appear in the ‘void complete with memories of a full human life in our universe, that arises due to extremely rare random fluctuations out of a state of thermodynamic equilibrium.’ I believe the Boltzmann Brain represents the return of Christ.

I have to point out the last Bible verse in Revelation that I copied it’s just beautiful. You see, when we say the ‘Lords prayer.’ We are praying for heaven to come down to earth whether we know it or not. When we say ‘as it is in heaven’ we are making this request. These verses in Revelations point right to that. “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,” and then there is a new dwelling place where we dwell with God.🙏

Chapter 10 from my book, “Not Without God: Hope In the Storm.”

Some Tips on How I Overcome

We sometimes go through hardship; I’d like to offer you some advice in this chapter if you areI can now use an elliptical at the gym, and I don’t even recall envisioning this. I mean, I never dreamt I would be able to run on an elliptical. I imagined I was walking on a walker at sixteen after my accident and suffering paralysis, but using an elliptical and going three to four miles on it is a huge success.

My point is, God will take you even further than what you’ve dreamt. He has the capability. It’s is a far stretch from where I was while in the hospital! I imagined myself walking even when I couldn’t sit up for more than a minute. And now, all these years later, running on an elliptical? God has given me abundance. I would picture myself getting better. Although I am not functional with one cane, I still believe I can get there. With God, nothing is impossible.

Having faith has so much to do with what we envision. We don’t always realize that; sometimes, we think that having faith comes only through what we hear or learn. But faith comes through what we envision; imagination is a powerful tool, and what we dream becomes manifest.

But not listening to doctors and science is detrimental. You see, what you hear is essential. What you hear has a way of affecting you either negatively or positively. Faith does cometh by heareth. We must have faith in science; I’ve talked about science in this book.

I’ve been able to accomplish walking because I envisioned it twenty-five years ago (I had faith). I expected it. Our imagination is from God. I’ve heard from a famous pastor that imagining him is the closest we will ever get to seeing him while we’re here, and seeing God can be real if we stop rejecting our imagination.

We reject it every day because society teaches us that if we use it, we are silly. Sometimes images just come to me while praying. I see specs of light often, even rays of light I have seen many times. Things sometimes move on their own. I always saw this as God’s way of telling me his angels are near and protecting me. I have heard God’s voice from deep within instructing me and even scream and tell me what to do in life-saving moments.

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. All of this is true.

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,’ so there is this entanglement. 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 distinction.

Everyone should search and find. 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.

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!

I never stop giving thanks. When you have a grateful heart and thank God for everything, you receive blessings because a thankful heart will provide you with a graceful attitude. I know it can be challenging to feel that way all the time. But try to think of all that God has done for you! I’m sure you are unique, as we all are. By reflecting on the abundance, you will have a better disposition. Sometimes you look around and can’t see past all the blessings, which is a cheerful heart!

Never give up. You have to work at accomplishing goals continuously. If you give up, you will never know what could’ve been if you would’ve only kept ongoing. There will be people who tell you differently or that you cannot do something. If you believe them, you won’t! You have to work hard and realize that it can take years for your dreams to occur. You will never regret all the work you have put in.

I know I haven’t. It will be worth it! The worst that can happen, you can try but fail, and you will more than likely not fail. I have had to accept that I may never walk the way I did before the accident, meaning hands-free, but I have accepted it. It doesn’t mean I don’t strive to get better. I have learned NEVER to say NEVER.

Have you ever thought about being a writer, for example? Did you know that 80 percent of Americans believe they should write a book? Most of them will never do it. People get intimidated by the work. They don’t know how to find a publisher or even self-publish. They never try or give up. 

These days, writers can self-publish with tools online, and there are ways to get your book printed on-demand, or you can go the route of Indie publishing like I have.

I traveled a lot on business trips, I’ve been to New York twice, and even met celebrities like Ice-T, his wife, Coco, Martha Stewart, Jerry, from Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, and more!

But whether you publish independently, with a hybrid company, or with a traditional publisher–you are still responsible for marketing. Be aware. Authors are not only writers, but they are also marketers, “experts,” salespeople, speakers, and we wear many hats! 

I would not suggest for anyone to publish prematurely. Millions of people write books each year, but the majority of them are not any good. You don’t have to be born with the talent, but you do have to practice! 

You can’t just wave a magic wand and become an excellent writer. I have been working on my craft for years. Outstanding writers often ghostwrite. I hope to one day do that also. That is where you write books for others. Again, to do something like that, you have to be a fabulous writer. 

You can start by writing for fifteen minutes a day. You can then re-read what you wrote to reflect and recognize errors in your writing like punctuation, spelling, and grammar. You can add more or rewrite to help change any negative attitudes if you practice journaling. 

You can’t heal from what you don’t acknowledge, and writing can be therapeutic. I’ve practiced this technique since I was a teenager. Write somewhere where you can focus and edit. If you can’t find the time to write every day, write for a total of one to two hours per week if you can. 

Three hours or more of writing per week would be an ideal schedule, though, if you’d like to be a writer.

Find a Writer’s Community. What would you want to write? Who will be in your audience? Create a blog. You can start a free blog at WordPress.com. I use that platform. I recommend you search for video tutorials on how to use it, again, not something you will quickly pick up by ‘waving your magic wand.’ 

You can start a blog at WordPress.org, but you would have to purchase hosting. I’ve bought a domain at Godaddy.com (I am not an affiliate of any of these companies). But my domain is just at zinahermez.com and points to my blog (My blog acts as my complete website.). It is also listed under notwithoutgod.net

Connect with other writers: join a writers’ group, attend a writers’ conference (I have been to several out-of-state and had a great time!). Share your writing with your friends or family and ask for honest feedback, but ask them not to be too harsh. Compliments with constructive criticism are healthy. 

Find an accountability partner (That was a new piece of advice I heard at a conference!). I liked it—someone to keep you responsible. I don’t need that at this point. 

I have been writing for nearly ten years, actively meaning for the publishing world. I write for several hours per day. Reading others’ writing can help, and it is a great way to write better. The best writers are the best readers, and writing can help you be a better speaker–I have told many people. Read a lot of material, research, books, online magazines, and fact-checked and reliable resources! 

Relax, and enjoy it (if you have no interest in writing, disregard)! I’ve taken the fun out of writing by focusing on trying to make it “perfect.” Trying to type the right words word-for-word can be stressful. I used to do that a lot in the beginning. These high expectations can take the enjoyment out of it! Writing has to be fulfilling. 

I was listening to a live webinar in my Writers Guild (a membership group I used to be in), and I heard a man say he feels “parched” while he writes. He was asking our writing coach how to solve this problem. He shouldn’t feel parched; he should feel inspired. You cannot inspire someone else until you inspire yourself first. But this develops over time. 

Finding your “voice” can take a while, but writing can become easier and more comfortable once you find it. You won’t regret all the work you’ve put in!

***

You also cannot be weak. Keep your body moving! And get up and exercise so you can stay healthy. That is what I do daily. They say that for athletes, 10,000 steps per day is ideal. Since I am someone with a spinal cord injury, I know that is not required of me, so I try my best to fulfill a few thousand steps (or mile) per day.

There is a body and mind connection. You will ‘see’ the impossible happen while you’re exercising! Train your body. There are so many possibilities. But it is hard to see them when you’re sitting on the couch. Start now, lift weights, and start with bicep curls.

Don’t be stagnant.

My daily regimen consists of exercising and writing, for the most part. Writing can take some energy, too. As I mentioned before, I listen to the Bible through audio (I try to listen every night, but I tend to listen sporadically throughout the week or during different times of the day). I listen to the Psalms (usually the dramatized version through a Bible app).

My favorite Psalms now are 69, 71, 74, and 77. One of my favorite books is The Book of Acts. It’s powerful.

Below are some remedies for overcoming—the ones I mentioned at the beginning of this chapter. When I speak publicly, I often talk about these topics.

•Talk to God throughout the day. Make Him your closest friend. He is the most outstanding listener. He will never interrupt. I know I can always count on Him. He will never stop listening to you. God is omnipresent. He can be everywhere all at once. He will answer, but not necessarily on your timing, and things may not go your way–but he’ll answer you one way or the other. The answers often come to me immediately in my heart. 

But I have been practicing having a relationship with God for a long time, so our connection is substantial. Like I mentioned above, having a relationship with God is like exercising a muscle. The more you practice exercising it, the stronger it gets! If you are quiet, you will hear from him better.

The answers will come (typically through feelings in your heart or visions). You have to discern God’s voice, but it can be hard to hear his voice if you do not know him well and talk with him much at all, so start practicing. If you are having trouble understanding God and his ways, I recommend reading the Bible. Begin at the New Testament Gospels.

Try not to make hasty decisions. When the answer to your prayer comes from God–you will be sure of it. There will be no shadow of turning, as it says in the Bible. When something comes down from the Father of Lights, you will know it!

Please think about how you can implement some of the activities I mentioned. Can you go for a walk (before the kids wake up if you are a mother)? And can you share your thoughts with God (pray for yourself and others)? What would you ask him for? Can you be cordial with ‘everyone?’ Can you make time for extracurricular activities? What are your hobbies? Are you a member of any groups? 

Can you go to the gym before your eight-hour workday (if you have one)? How about setting up a regular weekly sports game like tennis or walking with friends to make exercise social (so long as your governor is allowing it)? How can you be creative? Reflect. Write your thoughts down. It will help you realize what you have been lacking and how you can make your life better! It will also help you to improve!

God, what are you doing?

Often we feel this way, like, “God, what are you doing?” I don’t understand,
we think. How can you let this happen? Or that happen? We talk to him as if the universe has to confirm to us. But part of adulthood is realizing that the universe never had to conform to us. Nor does the universe owe us any explanations. There are times when things go our way, and how wonderful it is when that happens! There are times it doesn’t. In those times, we have to grow and know there is a larger purpose we cannot see or understand. I mean, there is gain in loss. Loss humbles us and teaches us stuff. You can never lose without gaining something. It’s like the positivity of a proton that is driven by the negative charge. The positive charge on a proton is equal in magnitude to the negative charge on an electron. Sadly, we don’t always get what we want, and sometimes we suffer. But suffering is a part of life, and there is no way to avoid it. In these times, we must trust in the Lord, keeping in mind what he suffered for us and not letting go of the fact that he rose again. This rising demonstrates a rebirth of the most excellent kind and reminds us that the universe is eternal. Death has not won. Nor have our problems. They are only temporary.🙏☦️🌝🌌

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.

Free Will and Destiny🔮✨

Since we have free will, some may think they can choose their destiny. But I believe fate and free will have to work in harmony. Determinism is a theory that says God determines everything and it’s pre-written. According to physics, though, we are ‘particles’ with endless possibilities. Although the Laws of the Universe wholly govern us, in an eternal universe, anything is possible.

What’s meant to be is a part of our destiny. Some people don’t believe in fate because we have choices. Our choices can determine our future, but our choices do not always determine the result. Meaning we don’t always get what we choose. God is in control, ultimately. He wants to see our dreams happen.

But he is our designer and the maker of everything! Life is complicated. There are twists and turns, and the path is not straight. We can decide, but things may not go the way we had planned or our way.

My advice to my friends when caught in predicaments is to pray. Stay in Faith. When you pray through anything, you’ll have knowledge, wisdom, and strength. When I say pray, I don’t necessarily mean bringing your desperate pleas to the Lord. He already knows what’s in our hearts. The Holy Spirit searches our hearts and conveys our messages to God.

Prayer means spending time with him, conversing, meditating on his word, and sharing your thoughts. Of course, you can make requests. But trust in God. He will give you your answers. You don’t have to spend hours praying, either. Prayer can be straightforward and just sharing requests and thoughts.

God will help you through anything if you put him first. He has to be the one you go to, the one you depend upon most. Ask him to help you discern and lead you to the right decisions. 

The people in the Bible didn’t question whether or not they heard from the Lord. They knew when he was speaking. It wasn’t a question of whether or not they can hear from him. They followed his wise instruction. Sometimes angels even appeared and performed miracles, like when Paul, the Apostle, was freed from prison in the Book of Acts. It was an angel who appeared and opened the gates. 

Because Paul had great faith, without faith, that miracle could’ve never happened. He will lead you to the right people, situations, and assistance if you ask. God has told me to wait on change and that the hardship I’m enduring has not gone in vain. He will tell you what to do if you listen and be patient.

Talk with him. It is how you can best hear. I mean by sharing your thoughts. You don’t have to talk out loud. You can speak to him in your heart. Give him your concerns, ask questions, and don’t forget to thank him. He’s always there. Your questions will get answered. Sooner or later.

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.

The language of physics is math. If you want to learn more: please check out this video by John Pennington: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od9NZC1tJ3I

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.

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.🙏

God & Science!💥🪐✨

‘Anything that’s allowed by the Laws of Quantum Physics is represented in this menagerie of the universes.’ ~Brian Greene (World-renowned Physicist)

Did you know that Physics has proven it is possible for there to be a second coming of Christ? Today I would like to share a YouTube video by Brian Greene and Sam Harris. I’d imagine you haven’t seen it unless you are really interested in physics, like I am, or unless you are someone in the scientific field. In case you don’t know who Brian Greene is, he’s a physicist, string theorist, professor at Berkeley and a NY Times Best Selling author. Sam Harris is an author, philosopher, neuroscientist and famous podcast host!

Beware, though, if you are sensitive about topics like religion and veganism, you may be slightly offended because they joke around at times! “There is some construal of Quantum Mechanics where Jesus is physically resurrected and it’s not incompatible with physics,” says Sam Harris, the philosopher and famous podcast host. “There is some Quantum ‘spookiness’ that allows for a physical resurrection,” he continues.

Brian Greene responds, “Yes, if we are just many universes out there, and if you wait long enough in a given universe, random particle motion in the universe will coalesce into any physically reliable structure.” It’s called the Boltzmann Brain argument, and it’s named after Ludwig Boltzmann. In this physics-thought-experiment, ‘a Boltzmann brain is a fully formed brain, complete with memories of a full human life in our universe that arise due to extremely rare random fluctuations.’

So you see, AYTHING is possible!!

‘Theoretically, over a period of time, on the order of hundreds of billions of years, by sheer chance atoms in a void could spontaneously come together in such a way as to assemble a functioning human brain.’ Thus, the brain of Jesus!

Ludwig also realized that the universe may have existed effectively for an eternity, and just one weird particle motion at the right moment happened to evolve into everything we know and see now (THE BIG BANG!). His argument was, ‘that if you have an eternity,’ anything can happen. You see, there is NO beginning and NO end. Jesus is eternal, and so are WE!

He will come back again, possibly, through the clouds like the Bible says. And, THE BIG BANG, happened when God said, “Let there be light,”  (see the Book of Genesis 1:3). Start watching this video at 1.36:10 when the student asks them the question about religion if you’d like to see only that part! The entire video is Amazing, though!!

Enjoy! 🌌🌏🪐💫

God–the Ultimate IT Guy!📱🎚🌌

“The universe is a physical system that contains and processes information in a systematic fashion and can do everything that a computer can do.”✨

Have you ever thought of the Universe as a Hologram? Your answer is probably, ‘no.’ But scientific findings through world-renowned physicists, like Leonard Susskind (look him up!), and Gerard ‘t Hooft (Nobel Prize winner) are now proving it is true! We are on a 2-Dimensional surface; this 3-Dimensional space seems to be nothing more than an illusion.

In case you don’t know what a Hologram is… It’s a 3-D surface formed by the interference of light beams from a laser or other coherent LIGHT source!

It’s called the Holographic Principle, and the principle teaches that ALL the things that fall into a black hole are somehow captured in a preserved image at the horizon itself. Physicists believe this activity happens not only in a black hole, but throughout the entire universe!

Black Hole!

A black hole is a region of space-time exhibiting gravitational acceleration so strong that not even light can escape from it! They are impossible for astronauts to observe.

Physicists think of the world as being driven by mathematical formulas. God made all of these equations to work.

Apparently, the universe sits on a 2D grid, where information about EVERYTHING is stored, information about you, me, everything on the planet, the stars, and other planets, (you get it!). Think of the virtual reality in the movie, “The Matrix,”🎬.

This theory was tested extensively. Imagine a tea pot or shoe fell down a black hole, the objects would not disappear. They would actually be fine when they reach the bottom, and their “information” would be stored on the surface. The number one rule of physics is that energy can never be destroyed or created, it can only be transformed! Another basic rule–information, megabytes, or ‘bits’ cannot be destroyed, either.

This is a breakthrough in science and a huge miracle! God–the ultimate Computer Designer is revealing to us every day just how A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. he is!

The physical universe exists ONLY because we perceive it. It is largely made up in our imagination as we move through time and space.

“Life is a dance between you and God; all else us an illusion, it’s a manifestation of his love.”

Some Things I Learned About the Universe

Thus says the LORD:
“Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
Where is the house that you will build Me?
And where is the place of My rest?”
~Isaiah 66:1

When was the beginning? Why is the universe so big? Can Christians believe in the Big Bang Theory? How old is the earth? Are we the only life that exists? These are some questions that were answered in a course I’ve almost completed called “Equip Your Mind” that is offered at a church in Michigan. It’s an Apologetics class that is taught as part of a six-week series, and it is very interesting. I’ve learned some new things; some things I already knew were reiterated. I’m enjoying it.

“Do you think that more Atheists or Christians support the Big Bang Theory?” was an opening question from our teacher. The class was divided–fifty percent raised their hands for Christians, and fifty percent raised their hands for atheists. In case you’re wondering, I raised my hand for the Christians category.

I visited this topic before when I showed a video called “Hunting the Edge of Space” by NOVA that has been aired on PBS to my students in the past. When on the chapter of a book that discussed space, I wanted a reliable video to supplement it. I thought this video was very neat and interesting. I’ve shown it more than once. If you’re interested in the cosmos, it is a must watch! Please let me know what you think…

A few things we’ve learned in our class:

• Legendary astronomer Edwin Hubble looked through his telescope in the late 1920’s and discovered that the universe appears to be expanding from a distant point in the single past. The universe is not expanding into empty space. Space itself is expanding between galaxies, and it’s getting bigger.

• If there was no beginning, the universe would have run out of energy already and no stars would be shining. Just like a vehicle, it cannot run endlessly unless you fill it with gas. A great miracle already occurred; the beginning. It’s proven by science. Science and religion are not opposite of one another; they work hand in hand.

• Why is the universe so big when we are the only life that exists? It had to be for us to be able to live on this planet. “All throughout the universe, discoveries indicate aspects of the universe have happened to be precisely as they need to be for our advanced life to exist, and if they varied just a bit, the universe would be without life. Amazing examples could be given on every size scale, from the entire universe, all the way down to the moon, all the way down to the subatomic forces and particles,” said the teacher of my class. God made it big for us!

This reminds me of how loved I am. If everything God created–space, time, and matter all work perfectly. Then how much must God love me? More than I can fathom. Can you fathom the size and scope of the universe? I’m sure you can’t. Now try to compare that to how much God loves YOU. It’s hard to comprehend.

Who am I to say my life is imperfect? I’ve struggled with self-acceptance since my accident as a teen, but if I am created in His “image” and “likeness” (Genesis 1:26). I am a child of God. He knows the desires and needs of my heart, so I ought to be still for a moment and feel that place of content. A place I need to visit more often. I am in the presence. When we know that, when we experience how much we are loved by the Lord, then nothing else makes a difference.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” ~Genesis 1:1-1:2
