It is my primary concern in this blog(book) to be understanding of the different views that the reader may have on historical science hypothesis/theory ie. origins, and especially on Bible interpretation (doctrine, history, and prophesy), while being true to what I believe based on what the Bible says when you read it, and where appropriate, read it literally. If you do not read the Bible literally, where appropriate, you are on a slippery slope of open interpretation; and, rightly divide it between the Kingdom and the church ie. rightly divide the Bible between Judaism(law) and Christianity(grace), you will have verses that conflict, and unfortunately you will have a conflicting false doctrine.

V. Disclaimer/Aknowledgement

Both the rightly dividing, and eschatological Bible knowledge necessary to obtain the interpretation truth herein, along with some other Bible doctrine, were obtained by questions from me, and answers from my mother. The chapter on regeneration was mostly due to questions from me and answers from Pastor Tom Couch of Grandville Bible Church. That’s not to say I haven’t added my own thoughts and ideas, in support of what was explained to me to further the reasoning for the doctrine herein. The science, and the chapters titled, “my Thought…” or “My Idea…,” and many other chapters are entirely my own thinking and reference.

VI. Acknowledgments

I would like to thank my former fellow swimmer, and friend Randy M., for first suggesting that I create a blog to keep people updated on my stroke recovery, unfortunately at that early time in my stroke, I was not recovered enough to do that. I am now recovered enough to do this, for which I thank the Lord, my family, my friends, my doctors, and my therapists; my brother Steve, for another suggestion to create a blog that became this; my mother, for mentoring me with her extensive Fellowship Bible Church, Grace Movement Berean Church, Calvary Church, and Grandville Bible Church based Bible knowledge, including her view on the sleep of death, and the inappropriateness of both communion and water baptism for us today, though to not be a stumbling block as Paul says, my mother takes communion anyway, when I was growing up, our family always stayed home from church once a month on communion Sunday; years ago, my uncle Gary Hazakamp, an ordained Reverend, trained at Moody Bible Institute, for his Biblical insights on the body and the spirit together making us a soul(being), the sleep of death, and for his understanding from the original Bible languages that hell, Sheol, Hades, death, and the grave are all synonymous, he spoke often about these subjects together in his messages during his Bible classes that my family and I attended on Sunday morning when I was growing up in my late teens, uncle Gary took over as pastor of the Fellowship Bible Church from Otitis Sellers; my former fellow swimmer and friend Chuck S., for getting me started on this whole subject after my stroke during his once a week, Tuesday visits at 5:30pm; my former fellow swimmer and friend Steve M., for suggesting that I include Bible verse references; my former work associate and friend Ben C., for his extensive mathematics knowledge; my former work associate and friend Kelly K., for his Bible knowledge and his advice; my cousin Don Fifolt, for his coment, that you could argue that evolution requires faith, just as creation does, if not more, and for his sharing with me his thoughts on he found in the Jack Van Impe book, Revelation Revealed, regarding Isaiah and Jeremiah referring to the USA. as having a significant role during the tribulation, and the future war and second seal; Grandville Bible Church Pastor Tom Couch, for his reassurance to me that the Lord is loving and that my having a stroke was not punishment for things I did before my stroke, and that I should not feel burdened and responsible that my sons do not seem to believe in Jesus, that I should cast this burden on the Lord, He can handle it, and the way he addressed his prayer to the Father in Jesus’ name; hopefully my oldest son Andrew, an English major, for proofreading and editing this. (I am trained in mathematics and computer science, but I do not consider myself an English writing expert), and; finally my youngest son Matthew, for naming the blog URL and getting me setup on WordPress.com, and hopefully doing cover artwork for an off-line actual book version of this.

I was remiss while my two sons were growing up to get them to a church of my background. They were both baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church, they both have either directly or indirectly told me they think Jesus is a myth, or if He existed that He is not God. I am trying my best to give them rationale for believing in Jesus, so they can have eternal life, because being baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church will not save them. They have to personally accept Jesus as their Savior, the Bible is very clear on this, see: John 3:16, Romans 10:9,10, Ephesians 2:8,9, Galatians 2:16, Isaiah 64:6.

Please note that the people I have acknowledged above have there own beliefs, thoughts, and ideas, and that they likely do not all agree with all that I have written, except for my mother. The thoughts and ideas written as verse commentaries and the scientific thoughts and ideas are my own, as is the interpretation of the Bible with Bible interpretation help from my mother, which all conforms to my family Bible study and searching the Scripture, upbringing.

101. The Form and Shape of Our Universe?

If you could look back at our universe from the outside, what would it look like? This vantage point would be from the angelic second heaven where the angels dwell, or from the timeless eternal highest third heaven, where the eternal Creator/God dwells, and where Jesus is preparing a place for us/Christians to live with Him forever and ever eternally after this life. Here are some possible geometrical and topological type universe shapes that you might look back on and see, note: this would be the view of a new universe, after our universe is destroyed with fire. You might even see the destruction of our current universe and it’s replacement with this new universe, almost like a repeat of the original creation and the new creation in Genesis 1:1,2. This will happen after the resurrection/rapture, the following seven year great tribulation, and the subsequent thousand year millennium on earth, then the resurrection of all the unsaved nonbelievers, and the great white throne judgment:

(1) a finite closed boundless hypersphere spacetime ball;

(2) a finite closed boundless hyper-shape—-maybe a hyper-oblong-spheroid spacetime egg, or hyper-oblate-spheroid spacetime door knob-shape;

(3) a finite closed boundless, simply connected, spacetime hyper-torus spacetime doughnut ring-shape

(4) a finite closed boundless differentiable, multiply connected spacetime hyper-manifold pretzel-shape;

(5) an infinite open negatively curved, simply connected, non-manifold spacetime hyper-saddle-shape or flat spacetime hyperplane.

Though, due to black hole singularities, the form and shape of our spacetime universe may not be differentiable and simply connected, unless every black hole is part of an Einstein Rosen bridge(wormhole), then our spacetime universe would be gravitationally bumpy, but differentially smooth.

Note: none of these finite or infinite spacetime hyper-shapes demand that the universe exists within a higher dimensional ambient space universe. (That embedding space would be satisfied by an angelic second heaven heaven where the angels dwell. That existential theological Christian conclusion must be taken on faith and Bible study interpretation, where any possible sign of knowing about a second heaven may now be beyond the horizon of the accelerating expansion of our universe.

(See post(chapter), 100. The Three Heavens)

(For the dynamic/static state and fate of the universe see post chapter, 8. Possible Fates For the End of the Universe)

100. The Three Heavens—Where God Dwells

(1) The first heaven is the air around us, the blue sky and clouds above us (the atmosphere), and the vast black night sky celestial dome of outer space(spacetime), all created by the eternal uncreated Creator, God/Jesus. In the Bible see, Genesis 1:1,2. This is the space of the sun and moon, planets, stars, black holes, and galaxies. In the Bible, this all collectively is the firmament(the sky).

(2) the second heaven is beyond. It is not necessarily a timeless heaven. It is where the angels dwell, who have access to our universe(the first heaven) and the timeless higher(highest) third heaven; though, this intermediate second heaven is Bible interpretation. The higher(highest) third heaven is where God the Father is. It is the heaven revealed by God/Jesus only to Paul. It is the heaven of our heavenly hope, where Jesus is preparing a place for us, after this life; otherwise, you could split the first heaven into two heavens—-the atmosphere, and outer space, where our atmosphere would be the first heaven and outer space would be the second heaven. The Bible doesn’t specifically tell us; rather, it is Bible study interpretation—-“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” I Corinthians 13:12—regardless of how you define it, the first and second heavens are the realm run and rule of the angels—-maybe Lucifer/Satan(the Devil) the fallen highest angel, and his angels (the fallen angels that followed Lucifer when God cast him out of or denied him access to the third heaven, are what aliens are. That is just a passing speculation about aliens to consider, but for more on that see, post(chapter) 20. My Idea on Extra Terrestrial Life.

(3) the third heaven, which is something timeless beyond that, is the eternal heaven where God dwells. It also is where Jesus is preparing a place for Christians to live forever and ever with Him, eternally, higher than the angels, when He takes us there after having our raised/transformed new body, at the resurrection/rapture, if we believe in Him. There could possibly be some sign of a second heaven’s existence (but we will probably never be able to know about it in our world because the accelerated expansion of our universe has put it beyond our horizon to know about it today.—-“‘Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.’” John 14:1-4—“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.” Philippians 3:20-21—the third heaven is something beyond an angelic second heaven and beyond our first heaven universe of planets, stars, and galaxies, this is the third heaven reveled only to Paul by God/Jesus when the bright light shone down on Paul and he fell to the ground on the road to Damascus.—-“I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.” II Corinthians 12:2-4—The third heaven can scientifically be thought of as a somehow higher parallel universe; though, the third heaven is an eternal uncreated timeless highest heaven that always existed. It is where the uncreated God dwells eternally, and is where Jesus is now, seated at the right hand of the Father, and preparing a place for us(Christians) to live with Him eternally.

It is interesting to try to imagine how timelessly wondrous the third heaven must be. It must be as wondrously far beyond the the first and second heavens, as outer space is beyond the atmosphere. T Rh he third heaven is not one of the Hugh Everett many-worlds universes in the multiverse, though the second heaven might be; rather, the third heaven is something timeless revealed by God/Jesus only to Paul, as Paul writes above, it is something he could not put into words. That is also what Paul means when he says, “not lawful,” the words would be too grandiose. It is where we/Christians will be with Jesus forever and ever eternally.

No one can prove the the second or third heavens exist, but no one can prove they don’t either. It’s taken on free will faith and Bible interpretation as to what are the first, second, and third heavens. There is nothing to lose by believing and everything to gain(no fear of death and the gift of eternal life in heaven), and everything to lose(resurrection judgement, and eternal death(know-nothing sleep) by not believing. It’s very simple. The big things are.

It is a great question often asked: where did our universe(the first heaven) come from? The true Biblical answer is: it was created by God, by way of the timeless uncreated third heaven. This would be where the, I AM, the Genesis Force came/comes from—the Fifth(First) Force, sprang and will return.

(See post(chapter), 40. I AM, the Genesis Force—the Fifth(First) Force).

99. Lucifer’s Rebellion—the New Creation

The Genesis 1:1,2 original creation, new creation gap interpretation(gap theory) of an indefinite amount of time, even billions of years, is a Bible study interpretation that can go a long way toward reconciling deep time secular science naturalism origins with literal Genesis Biblical history, as follows: part of the original creation may be what secular science naturalism hypothesizes as billions of years. This includes some earth science geology, some planetary science, some star and galaxy formation, and cosmology, but not earthly biology, meaning the naturalistic beginning of life and its macro evolution producing all the variety of life on earth, is all still a myth.

Between Genesis 1:1,2 is a good place to put the fall of Lucifer, and his being cast out of heaven(the third heaven) to earth because it would have had to be before the Garden of Eden, this then infers an original perfect creation at some indefinite earlier time (even billions of years, where Satan defiled this original perfect creation that was then destroyed by God who then made a new perfect creation. It can be thought that the dinosaurs existed in the original creation. Then, like lions in the subsequent perfect new creation, dinosaurs, like Tyrannosaurus Rex would need to have been herbivores, not carnivores. This all is an alternate deep time mixing in of the secular view; rather than having Noah’s flood destroy predator and prey dinosaurs?4,000 years ago, much later in history. These things are difficult to know for sure because they are history, not science. It has been a deep time vs. young time rollercoaster ride for me, but I have turned the corner to a young time view of it all; though, I’m not fond of thinking that baby dinosaurs were on Noah’s ark, but if they were, they could explain all the dragon slaying stories as not being fiction. The dragons would have been dinosaurs that survived the flood on the ark and grew up.

Ezekiel 28:13-16. In the Book of Ezekiel there is a description of someone called the king of Tyre; though, there was an actual historical person who was the king of Tyre, the description the Bible gives of this person seems to go far beyond this human leader; though, in context, Ezekiel was first speaking about the historical king of Tyre, he seemingly moved into the dateless past with a description of the original fall of Lucifer to become Satan.

Admittedly, this is a difficult passage to interpret. There are many who believe that this is a description of the account of the original fall of Lucifer to become Satan. Though some of the descriptions given may fit the historical king of Tyre, others certainly do not seem to. These include the expressions: “perfect in beauty,” “you were in Eden,” “you were on the holy mountain of God,” and “you were blameless.” These descriptions would not fit the actual king of Tyre. Therefore they are most likely to be understood as statements about the original fall of the angel who became the Devil.

According to conservative proponents of the gap theory, Genesis 1:1 describes the original creation of God—perfect in every way. Then, between verses 1 and 2, Satan rebelled in heaven and was cast out. Satan’s sin “ruined” the original creation; that is, his rebellion brought about its destruction and eventual death, and the earth was reduced to its “formless and empty” state, ready for the “re-construction.” The length of time involved is not specified but could have lasted billions of years, this would be the size of the “gap.”—-How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12—“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:” Isaiah 14:13

“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14:14

“Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isaiah 14:15

“ “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. A number of angels followed Satan, they are the demonic force
I personally believe Satan had a kingdom of angelic beings who dwelled on a perfect earth and had access to the heavens.” Revelation 12:9

98. Some Obvious Reasons why We Are Created, Not Evolved

The beauty and elegant complexity of DNA and the continuing mystery of its hidden higher workings that are continually being revealed by science, boggle the mind. It is obviously designed, not randomly evolved.

Same thing for the human eye and ear, in all their microscopic wonderful intricate elegant complexity. They could not have begun and partially existed to evolve into what they are. A partial evolved eye or ear is of no use, so why would a partially evolved complex organ like an eye or an ear even begin, let alone exist for millions of years partially evolved and of no use? Eyes and ears are obviously wonderfully and intentionally designed by God.
