When we think of God it is through the lens of what our parents taught us or what we learned about Him/Her through our many contacts with people in our culture or maybe from another culture. Our problem is, how can a person describe an entity we cannot see but we have been told exists? If you have been raised in a religious background, you have been told that God exists in your faith and that will have to do. However, the Bible shows us a side to God that goes far beyond our beliefs through faith. The writers of the Bible were trying to show us the true nature of God in the various anecdotes. They described God as all powerful. Often they tried to show God as acting like a man with massive power in His/Her arm or hand which brought about miraculous results.
Think of some of God’s power through ordinary humans like Moses who brought down upon Egypt ten plaques which devastated the country and its people. Think of God coming down in a cloud of fire and billowing smoke on the mountain when he met with the people of Israel in the desert. Think of the power of God in the miracles that He/She performed through people like Elijah and Elisha who brought children back from the dead. Think of the many powerful miracles Jesus performed displaying what a person could do if they became totally connected to the Spirit of God. We are always reminded that God will only connect His/Her Spirit with a person’s Soul/Spirit through invitation and intent. Otherwise He/She will not interfere in our lives because God honors our freedom to choose.
So, what is this Power of God that we speak about? Thanks to our scientists who are learning the composition of quantum energy, we are coming face to face with the Power of God. Let me explain. Quantum energy is composed of tiny, (invisible to the naked eye), particles of light and light waves. Just like electricity and radio waves that are also invisible, they fill all space around us and even fill us. We think we are alone in this world but we all have one thing in common. We are all filled with the same energy and we are far more alike than different. However, what makes quantum light different from any other energy is the power it contains. That power is the Power of God.
What do we mean by that? If we examine the attributes of quantum light we find it has the same abilities that describe the Power of God that you find in the Bible. First of all, we are told in the Bible that God can be with all of us at the same time and hears every prayer we utter. Quantum light has the ability to be in multiple places at the same time. We are told that God knows our every thought and hears every word we say. Quantum light is a message carrier that can instantly carry all messages around the world and across the universe. What we fail to do is realize that God is closer to us than our own breath. God is in us and we are in God and regretfully we don’t even realize it. God will either let us go our own way or, on our invitation, connect with us to be our road map through life.
Throughout the Bible we are told that God knows our every thought. That idea boggles the mind! How can the Creator of the Universe know what a lowly, insignificant person such as I am, is thinking. King David refers to this incredible ability of God when he tells his son, Solomon, “For the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and thought.” He also refers to God’s ability to intimately know him when he says in Psalm 139, “Search me, God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.” We have never figured out who God is and what His capabilities are until very recently. As long as God was somewhere out there or in heaven, we have felt immune to God’s presence or judgement. Really, the truth is we don’t want God or anybody else knowing what we are thinking.
Then along comes our new science, quantum mechanics. Most people are oblivious to what it really is. In my book, God is Alive and Well, I explore how God and we function in this new science. Quantum energy is just like electricity or radio waves. We know they exist. We just can’t see them. We know they exist by the results of what we see when we turn on a light switch or listen to music on a radio station or on your cell phone. Just because we can’t actually see the energies, we do believe they exist. The same is true for quantum energy that shows itself as light particles and light waves. Scientists have been studying this energy for one hundred years but unlike electricity and radio waves, we really haven’t harnessed quantum energy to find all its uses. This is changing rapidly in recent years and our minds will be blown by what we can do with it in the future, like quantum computing.
Where does God fit into this unseen world of quantum mechanics? As I have stated in my book, God is Alive and Well, the Lord created the entire universe, including our planet using the quantum light. Scientists have discovered that quantum light has some very remarkable properties. It travels faster than the speed of light. It carries messages. It is extremely powerful and it exists in all space. What we think of as empty space is totally filled with quantum light. It even fills every person’s body. After considering the properties of quantum light and that God is in every particle of that light, does it surprise you the Creator is with you and in you every moment of every day? We can have no secrets from God.
This brings us to the second part of our communications. It is one thing to think negative thoughts of others but God also knows our every word that we utter, even when no one is around to hear them. But God is! Proverbs says, “The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.” In today’s society words gush forth with little thought of who reads or hears them. We have entered a period of time where the world is connected by words and images but if we realize God is fully knowledgeable about every word you write, how honoring are you to Him who is pure Love. As well, if we realize that our words are sent out in the quantum light, are we contributing to the pollution of the earth? If we send a hateful message out, it can carry instantaneously around the world and throughout the universe. As Solomon says in Proverbs, “Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues. Maybe it’s time to stop and think before we send out that negative message.
A soul-touching and inspiring book, God Is Alive and Well presents a fresh and exciting view of God that will ultimately draw readers into a deeper understanding of—and relationship with—their creator.
