In my last article I mentioned a recent fascination I’ve developed with the idea of time travel as portrayed in various science fiction videos I’ve been watching. Since then, I just happened to listen to a Bible study conducted by Chuck Missler where he answered my science questions. He has been teaching the Bible for over 30 years and weaves science, archeology, geography, history, prophecy, and current events into every lesson.
I started my study with Revelation, moved to Genesis, jumped to Isaiah, and am currently in the middle of Daniel. I marvel at the fact that the Bible is composed of 66 books written by 40 different authors over a period of 2000 years. The first discovery I made as I studied is that all the books are an integrated message system and every detail is there by design. As Mr. Missler likes to say, “The New Testament is the Old Testament concealed and the Old Testament is the New Testament revealed.” The second discovery is that it writes history in advance, so the origin of that message had to have occurred outside the dimensionality of time. Well, that is supernatural, not science fiction.
It is amazing how much I’m learning about science from the first six verses of Genesis alone. The fact that time itself is a physical property, not uniform, and that it varies by mass, acceleration, and gravity gives me chills. Add to that the fact that scientists continue to prove that we live in multi-dimensional spacetime – currently it is four dimensions but it could be as high as ten – and my mind starts to acknowledge that the Rapture is reality. I take the Bible literally and agree with Mr. Missler that “God says what he means and means what he says.”
What God starts in Genesis, He ends in Revelation. Creation cost Him six days. Redemption cost God his beloved Son. That is how much God loves me and desires a relationship with me. The Creator in Genesis became a man and His appearance on earth is the central event of all His Story. Jesus died to purchase me and He is alive today, seated on a throne in the heavens at the right hand of God, interceding for me. What a blessing it is for me to discover my small part in making Him known in Papua New Guinea.
