What Einstein discovered is that time is "relative". Have we heard this before?
2 Peter 3:8 (ESV) "But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."God does not reinforce science, Einstein reinforced God! That's significant. It puts the power on the Creator, not on the creation.
When reading the above verse, this does not mean one day equals one-thousand years. It's an example presented for understanding that time is indeed relative.
Scientists have measured the movement of cosmic bodies. Space debris (mass) is sucked into black holes. Those unseen massive bodies in space are so dense that light cannot escape because of the gravitational forces (another aspect of Relativity). The mass in space, if caught in the periphery of the black hole, are slung out into space faster than the speed of light. The movement of the mass from point A to point B, since the motion is faster than light, confounds time. Rather than billions of years to get from point A to Point B, it's instantaneous. The path traveled is called a "worm hole". The compression of time confirms "a thousand years is as one day"! the statement made in the Second Epistle of Peter and attributed to God.
We know that Jesus "just appeared" in different places in scripture. The most astounding is this magnificent entry:
John 20:19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”Jesus defied empirical laws! He moved through mass as if it wasn't there and he didn't walk through the door. He appeared from nowhere and stood among the eleven! As he defied physical laws (Newton's First Law) he also defied time, traveling from Point A to Point B, instantaneously and apparently invisibly! Jesus (God Incarnate) turned minutes into instants of time. Peter said that God's time was not finite and Jesus proved it by his entry!
Scientists speak of billions of years for random chance to evolve into higher-level existence. My contention, based on God being infinite, is that it didn't take God billions of years to create, but with relativity, it took six days to create what seems like billions of years! Note that I said "seems". Billions of years of "work" were done in six days of God's time. It was still six days as measured by us, not billions of years, but God's work was super-efficient, defying time! As the mass example moves through the wormhole billions of miles in an instant , the universe moved through that same billions of years in an instant (six days to be precise!)
God made mature things. In our time frame, since time was compressed, it appeared to the"observer" that all things were created mature. For instance, Adam was not created an embryo and grew. He was created a mature man:
Genesis 2:7 "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed."As Adam was created dust came from the ground and took form. All the processes of formation were done in an instant so slight that time was insignificant. As God made man a mature being, he also made a mature world and a mature cosmos. It was if it all happened in an instant (six) days, and it did! It didn't take billions of years to create, but a billion years of creative work was done in six days. Please don't confuse this with evolution which proposes that from nothing to now took billions of years and "growth" toward maturity.
God may have initiated his six day creation with a "Big Bang", but the gestation period of his creation was six days, not billions of years! In fact the vast explosion of something from nothing, called "The God Particle" actually supports God! What we know exists now supports God. There are two areas of disagreement with science: 1) God compressed time and 2) He created mature attributes. Never has there ever been found a "missing link" because God created all as is! God never had the need to create a primate then turn him into man. An omnipotent God just created man and he even had a model!
Genesis 2:27a "So God created man in his own image..."Do we look like God? Yes we do! We were created with a spirit which filled the soul "man became a living soul:" (Genesis 20:19). However, a soul is only part of the image of man. We have a mind and a body as well. Who did God pattern those after? Himself! He created "man in his own image"! What aspect of God has physical attributes? Our bodies and it's processor. It was Emmanuel (God With Us). God knew what Jesus would be and made Adam in the image of Jesus! That's the only way it could be.
My proposition is that science supports God's account of the creation, but scientists have misunderstood the findings because they fail to understand God! While they profess General Relativity and it's implication for time compression, they fail to see that God's creation was compressed in time. Mankind in 1964 discovered what God knew in the beginning. That's six-thousand years of ignorance which, if scientists had believed God's word, would have discovered long ago.
This lagging of science to scripture is not the first time! Columbus in 1492 A.D. discovered the Americas because he was convinced the earth is round in spite of all the scientists of his time. What did Columbus discover before he discovered America?
Isaiah 40:22a "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth..."What is the earth? It is a solid projection of a fan of circles. Whichever way one goes the travel is a circle. God told Isaiah that around 740 B.C. Subtract that ((1402 (-)-740)) and we get 2142. Isaiah was told by God 2142 years before Columbus knew, that the earth is a sphere! There's quite a lag in time between truth and finding it! In scientists' time-frames they are trillions of years lagging (LOL)!
Remember three things: 1) God is all knowing, 2) God is all powerful and 3) science must take a backseat to God, not the other way around.
Isaiah 66:1a "Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool..."Isaiah also knew the power of God. Scientists have yet to figure that one out. Maybe "The God Particle" will be one small step for mankind!
