Hebrews 11:3

 

"Through Faith We Perceive That The Worlds Were Framed By The Word Of God, So That The Things Which Are Seen Were Not Made Of Things Which Do Appear"---And Modern Physics Has Just Proven This!

 

Now, it says this, by faith, or "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." (verse 3)  [Wow!  Science, through Albert Einstein and the BIG BANG has just caught up with this Bible truth, through modern physics.  Read on if you don't believe me.]  Because we believe in that which is invisible, that which is not seen.  Every generation that's ever lived, by the way, since Adam and Eve, has lived and died, not receiving the fulfillment of the promises.  They've lived in faith.  Verse 39 tells us that, about those that lived in faith.  Not just faith in faith.  Faith again is only as solid as, its not an object, its faith in Jesus Christ [or that he w I'll do something, as with Abraham and Sarah having Isaac].  Hebrews chapter 1, verse 1 begins to tell us 'in many ways, and sundry times has God spoken through the prophets, but has now spoken in these last days in Son, through his Son, our faith is in h'm and what he said.  We believe in h'm.  Paul said 'I know in whom I have believed.  And it is by that faith, it says, 'We understand, we perceive that the worlds were made by the Word of God [i.e. Jesus Christ], that the things which are seen are not made of things which do appear.  Its kind of an interesting thing.  By faith we understand.  Now 'Its by faith we perceive. "To understand" that is a word, never in the New Testament anywhere is it translated in the sense of physical sight, "through faith we understand" we don't see that way.  Its 'by faith we perceive, we perceive something.  If you can get past the first two verses of the Bible, the rest of its a breeze, "In the beginning God created [Hebrew "bara": to create something out of nothing] the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."  'The things that are made are created from things which do not appear, which are not seen, the Bible tells us that.  And that's something we perceive, its something that we perceive, that the things that are made right now around us are made of things which do not appear.  [i.e. What made the swirling mass of plasma 11 to 13 trillion degrees hot with a frequency of 13 trillion cycles per second which was the size of a mustard seed, which was the initial phase of the BIG BANG?  Scientist don't know, it appears to have come out of nothing.  They can't go back beyond that initial appearance of this tiny spec of intensely hot and dense plasma they call the BIG BANG.]  Isn't that interesting?  that's why, when I think of resurrection again, the wonderful thing about resurrection, when I'm thinking about the resurrection, because my dads gone, I don't just believe in life after death, like oooh, some ethereal plane, I believe in resurrection.  I believe hes getting up again.  And I believe I want to put my arms around him, and I'm going to hug him again.  that's what I believe. Because, I was there the second he took his last breath, I saw the software leave the hardware.  The software, the program, is Immaterial, its mass-less, it doesn't weigh anything.  [Hes talking about the human spirit, the spirit-in-man that Paul talked about in 1st Corinthians 2:9-13.  For an explanation and good studies about  all this, the first resurrection to Immortality, and the 2nd resurrection for all the unsaved dead, see,  http://www.unityinchrist.com/corinthians/cor15-16.htm, and again, for what might happen at the 2nd resurrection for all the unsaved dead (including my dad, whom I love dearly) see http://www.unityinchrist.com/plaintruth/battle.htm.  The second link goes to articles that explain about this human software that gives us our human intellect, and awesome human reasoning power, far beyond that of animals.]  If you take all of your software and download it on a computer, you've got a new computer or something, it might be faster, you get an upgrade, you see that's whats going to happen when we get to resurrection, were going to get an upgrade [both in hardware and software], everything s going to work faster, but its going to be the same software that's in there [all our memories, all the character we developed under the influence of having Gods indwelling Holy Spirit coupled to our software, the human spirit in us, all of that w I'll be placed in this new upgraded hardware, our new resurrection bodies, whatever they'll be like.  We know this, because John tells us in 1st John 3:2, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:  but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."  How is Jesus now?  Later in Johns life, on the Isle of Patmos, John saw Jesus as he is now, described in Revelation 1:11-18.  John says in 1st John 3:2 that our new bodies w I'll be like what he saw in Revelation 1:11-18.  Look it up and read it.]  And its the software that makes the program, which is intangible.  Resurrection is no problem, he was cremated, some people go 'oh, he was created, whats going to happen in the resurrection, there is nothing left?  Well, after three years laying somewhere in a box theres nothing left either.  And lots of early Christians were burned at the stake or fed to lions, there wasn't much left of them either.  Lots of them have been buried at sea.  You know, the thing we've come to understand is that atoms are fungible, its the software that determines who I am, and God has a higher purpose for this space-suit that's wearing out right now.  But what w I'll make it what it is, is the program that he put in it, its the software, its the information.  I can be recreated from any atoms, anywhere, because its the atoms that form the molecules, and the molecules make the proteins and everything else, he can use any old atoms anywhere to reconstruct the same hardware.  It doesn't matter, atoms are interchangeable.  And were discovering more and more the structure of things and the importance of the software of all this, and the material universe is really made of things that are not seen [i.e. physicists are now always talking about "dark matter" and "dark energy."  And don't forget, God is, dwells, outside of Space & Time, the Space-Time Continuum.]  that's what it just said here.  God spoke, he raI'mo, not Logos, he spoke the worlds into existence.  That things were formed and made by things which are not seen.  The Programmer programmed, it was the software that determined how everything amassed and come together. 

 

Some History Of Quantum Physics And Relativity

 

Again, understanding a little bit more in these last few centuries about these things, they say if you would take the nucleus of an atom and make it the size of a basketball, that the closest electron would be in Los Angelos (and hes in Philadelphia), it would be 3,000 miles away, that everything is mostly space.  If you took all of the space out of the earth, 8,000 miles in diameter, if you took all of the space out of it, you could put the earth in a basket.  So everything here is mostly space.  Some of us more than others, but [laughter].  And everything that's made is really made of something that doesn't appear.  I had some fun today looking at some history of some quantum particle physics in this century, you know it was in 1904, 1906 when scientists started to look at subatomic structure [Einstein, Niels Borr].  You had molecules, and then you got down to atomic structure, with nucleuses, neutrons, protons and electrons, and electrons got the photons, and they started to find all of this stuff.  And they were staggered, Ludwig Boltzmann, a leading quantum physicist when the field was blossoming, committed suicide, because he couldn't handle what he was discovering.  Because what he said was that material (physical matter) is really made of non-material [shimmering balls of pure energy as some would later say, which is the way the matter started out in the BIG BANG, and then it cooled and expanded to what we have now, and that knowledge is now all contained in provable modern physics.  Poor Boltzmann, he couldn't handle all that].  And if what he was discovering is true, he said "There has to be a Designer," and he couldn't handle it.  In 1906 J.J. Thompson received the Nobel Prize for proving that electrons are particles.  In 1937 his son was awarded the Nobel Prize for proving that electrons are waves [they're both, just like photons which make up light].  The father got the Nobel Prize for proving that electrons were particles, the son gets the Nobel Prize for proving electrons are waves, now they discover both father and son are correct.  And what makes it even more astonishing is that there is compelling evidence that the only time Quanta ever manifest as particles is when someones looking at them.  [Order the book Schrödingers Kittens if you want your mind to be blown.]  This is for your information.  Niels Borr pointed out that if sub-atomic particles only come into existence in the presence of an observer, then it is meaningless to speak of a particles properties and characteristics as existing before they're observed [no wonder poor Boltzmann committed suicide].  Follow me here [I can't stop laughing].  But if the act of observation actually helped create the properties, what did that imply about future science?  And he said, "Anyone who isn't shocked by quantum physics hasn't understood it."  One physicist who was deeply troubled [only one?] by Borrs assertions was Albert Einstein [my hero of all physicists].  Despite the role that Einstein played in the founding of quantum theory, he was not pleased with the course of the fledgling science [naturally, because quantum physics does not mesh mathematically with the science of Relativity, which Albert Einstein was the major discoverer of.  Before Einstein died, his goal was to integrate quantum physics with Relativity, which scientists continue to try to do, and this is to try to produce what they term as The Unified Field Theory.  Get and read Greene's The Elegant Universe].  The problem according to Einsteins Special Theory of Relativity is that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.  Einstein and his colleagues were convinced that no reasonable definition of reality would permit a faster thing than light.  And to see what they discovered in quantum physics is if they took an electron or a photon, and they split it off, and it shot off in one direction, that something just like it shot in the other direction.  If they deflected it off of a plate, where it deflected, the thing that went in the other direction deflected in the same place even though there wasn't a plate [is your mind blown yet?].  So they discovered that theres some communication between them that they don't understand.  And if one of them is traveling at the speed of light in this direction, the other one is traveling the speed of light in that direction, somethings happening at twice the speed of light [Warp 2 in Star Trek terms, for all you Trekkers like me].  And Einstein didn't want to face that, he couldn't hack it [eventually he did], because he knew it pointed to a Creator, and he didn't want to deal with it.  [Einstein came to accept that God really existed, though he never darkened the door of a church or synagogue, as I believe he despised organized religion, and rightly so.  When my dad was at Williams College he said if you were a math student, you could call up Professor Einstein on the phone at Princeton University, and get help solving math problems.  He was a very humble man.]  It says, though, Borr remained unperturbed by Einsteins argument [they were both right].  One factor that contributed to Borrs following was that quantum physics had proved so secularly successful, they could do these things, they just couldn't explain them.  "In predicting phenomena few physicists were even w willing to consider the possibility that it might be faulty in some way.  The entire industry today of lasers, micro-electronics, computers have emerged on the reliability of the predictions of quantum physics.  The popular Cal Tech physicist Richard Frayman summed it all up by saying, "I think it is safe to say that no one understands quantum mechanics.  In fact, it is often stated, that of all the theories proposed in this century, the s silliest is quantum theory.  Some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it, in fact, is that it is unquestionably correct.  There seems to be evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it are only ghostly Images, projections from some level of reality beyond our own, that the real reality is literally beyond both Space and Time [that guy is knocking on Gods door, outside the Space-Time Continuum!]."  The main architect of this astonishing idea includes one of the worlds most eminent thinkers, the University of London physicist David Boam, as prestigious as Einstein and one of the worlds most respected quantum physicists.  Boams work in plasma physics in the 1950s is considered a landmark in science.  One of Boams most startling suggestions is that the tangible reality of our everyday lives is really a kind of Illusion, its like a holographic Image.  Underlying it is a deeper order of existence, a vast and more primary level of reality that gives birth to all the objects and appearances of our physical world, in much the same way that a piece of holographic film gives birth to a hologram.  [This concept was used in Star Trek, The Next Generation, with the Enterprises Holo-Deck. What modern quantum physics is saying is were all living on a huge holo-deck, outside of which, is a higher reality.  Remember those 'humans created on the holo-deck were powerless to leave the holo-deck and step out into the Enterprise proper, the higher reality?]  The holographic paradigm is a st I'll developing concept, and riddled with controversy. For decades science has chosen to ignore the evidences that do not fit the standard theories.  However the volume of evidence has now reached the point that denial is no longer an option."  "The Bible, of course," one scientist says, "is unique in that it always presented the universe in more than three dimensions, and revealed a Creator that is transcendent over his creation.  It is the only book that demonstrates these contemporary insights."  [he laughs]  "Paul Davies, a famous quantum physicist, is reported as summarizing this provocatively, he said, "It is as if the entire universe was nothing more than a thought in the mind of God."  "By faith we perceive that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."  (verse 2)  Whose crazy now, huh?  [laughter]  And you know, the truth is, look, this looks like a metal podium. The truth is, its all space, its an electric field, that's what quantum physicists can't stand.  This is not a solid microphone stand, its made of atomic structure, but all space, theres nothing there, and what they realize is, is that two realities can exist within the same space, and for one reality to exist, Someone had to design it, and put it in order.  And here we are, ahuh.  I'm glad we can take all this in by faith, and I don't have to do this with a paper or a pencil or a computer, I'll tell you that.  'By faith, we perceive these things, that the world we live in right now is an Illusion, its like a vapor, its passing away, that's what were told (cf. James 1:10-11), and that the reality behind these things is the Word of God (another name for Jesus Christ, cf. John 1:1-14).  Moses made the tabernacle in regards to the reality of what he'd seen in heaven, it was a copy, it was a reflection of what the greater reality was.  Man, created in Gods Image and likeness, what was it like when Adam, before the fall, walked with God?  It was in more than one dimension if he walked with God [not necessarily, God in the person of the pre-Incarnate Christ, could have and did step into mans dimension on earth, like Captain Piccard stepping into the holo-deck.  Several possible theological positions are possible here, and we just do not know which is true].  It was the fall that bound us to our existence now.  And it says the creation is groaning and travailing, waiting to be released from the bondage that its in (cf. Romans 8:19-22).  What w I'll that be like?  What w I'll that be like?  I can't Imagine.  When you get to heaven [which according to all these physics lessons we've just had, when we are able to step outside of Space-Time and into Gods realm, which is the ultimate reality, like us being able to step off the holo-deck we all exist on, where the holographic Images we once were become a "solid" reality, stepping into Eternity], were all going to be 30-something, 29, whatever, wherever you were your best, I guess, I'll see my dad young, my grandpa young again.  I'm looking forward to seeing Jesus Christ, that w I'll be my joy of joys.  I'm looking forward to getting ahold of my dads ear again, same ear, upgraded, and rubbing it with my fingers, by faith, by faith.  Maybe you're here tonight and you don't believe, you think were insane, and you think everybody here is more insane because they listen to me, and you know I'm insane.  You know, were not giving out Cool-Aid at the doors or something.  Look, Paul puts it this way, 'What if what we believe is not real?  What if Christ isn't risen from the dead, what if there isn't another realm?  What if that's the reality, and we live our lives with hope, and joy, and were able to face death, and were able to face difficulty, because of faith, and we live our whole lives with hope and with joy, and if none of its real and we live that way, and we die, what have we lost?  But if its true, and you don't believe, what have you lost?  (this paraphrase possibly referring to 1st Corinthians 15:12-23)  If that tomb in Jerusalem is empty, if on the 3rd day he did rise from the dead, if in that new upgrade, same body, but upgraded, spirit driven [now Calvary Chapels believe this is Christs new body, and well have the same, "flesh and bone" theology.  Others believe spirit is more solid than matter (outside this realm of Space-Time, the holo-deck we live on), and our new bodies, like Christs w I'll be composed of pure spirit.  Again, two differing theological positions, one of which w I'll prove true, and well find out at the time of the 1st resurrection to Immortality], software driven instead of blood-driven, all his blood was drained out.  Stepping through walls, coming into the midst of the disciples, the new body, the new model, I can't wait.  Traveling at the speed of light?  No, Einstein only had half the speed, the quantum physicists have proved there are things going twice as fast.  I don't want to travel at the speed of light, I want to travel at the speed of thought, much faster than the speed of light [Pastor Joe's biggest pet peeve is getting stuck in traffic, or behind someone going barely under the speed-limit].  And Ive figured out that's why I'm frustrated in traffic now, because I was designed to travel [loud laughter] at the speed of thought.  You know, if I could have just studied at home tonight until 7:30 and thought myself over here, thought myself showered and dressed, just thought myself over here, there'd be no problem.  If I could just think myself healthy again, if I could just eat junk-food and think myself healthy, that's what I'm frustrated about.  Id like to do that.  If I could just think my house painted, if I could think the trash out [remember that old TV comedy Bewitched?]  If I could just think the furniture and the paint, everything perfect so my wifes completely happy.  But you see, when we get to heaven [into the Kingdom of God as well, which w I'll be on earth, but also into this realm outside of Space-Time, our present existence on this holo-deck] God w I'll have thought ahead of us.  And the thought of the place where were going to is thought out with an infinite mind (cf. Revelation 21:1-23, the New Jerusalem, that heavenly city Abraham was longing for, Hebrews 11:8-10, 13-16).  And what w I'll happen when we get there is then we w I'll be allowed to just let our minds go, and it w I'll never reach its end.  We w I'll step into a place where every color is beyond what we've ever imagined is perfect, and we w I'll run with it and never come to the end of it.  Every sense, every light, every smell, every sensation, beyond the speed of thought, the reality, 'faith, right now, is the foundation of the things that were hoping for, its the conviction of things we have not yet seen. [partial transcript of a connective expository sermon on Hebrews 11:1-4, covering Hebrews 11, verse 3, given by Pastor Joe Focht, Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia, 13500 Philmont Avenue, Philadelphia, PA  19116]
