Quantum physics expresses the inner workings of deep nature. If Scripture contained a quantum vocabulary, as I have maintained, it would describe the inner workings of God’s revealed wisdom. In physicist David Bohm’s interpretation of quantum physics, there is a deeper or implicate order in nature containing hidden variables. Scripture tells us that everything in the manifest universe emerged from God’s Word (John 1:1-3). This means that quantum physics is a real expression of the architecture inherent in Scripture.
However, to personally acquire a quantum vocabulary and gain access to the inner richness of the Lord’s Sacred Word requires some further mental rumination and digestion on our part.
Imagine if after eating a hamburger, it remained a hamburger in the stomach. Not only would your body not derive its proper nutriment, the hamburger would begin to spoil and have a toxic effect.
Same with Scripture, especially when after reading a biblical verse, it stays as it is in the mind. Atheists correctly observe the toxic effect that religion has on the human mind – as when people despise and fight each other over the different subjective interpretations of the Bible.
The Lord’s Holy Word was written specifically in a way that provides spiritual nutrition for our souls. That is, its real nutritive potency lies deeper within, and must be distilled from its literal sense. However, the results may be so unexpected for our habitual mind that inner indigestion can result.
Knowing this, and getting in the right frame of mind, we can begin to start dealing with some of the very strange ideas expressed in the Bible.
In Revelation 10:9, John asks an angel for a special book and the angel unexpectedly tells him to eat it. John is then informed that the book will first taste sweet in the mouth but become bitter in the belly. Translating this strange scenario into its equivalent quantum vocabulary, where the meanings of terrestrial words become more expanded, things can begin to make more logical sense. This story teaches us that the information in a book from God can first seem quite pleasant, but after it is further broken down into its constituents, we may learn more than we can handle at that particular moment. (After all, we are tapping into Infinite Wisdom.)
Let’s look at other “odd” biblical passages.
In Revelation 19:17, an angel calls upon the birds in heaven to gather for the “supper of God.” This glorious Divine feast will feature the flesh of kings, army commanders, and horsemeat. Or, is there a more elevated meaning to this?
At the Last Supper, the Lord similarly asks his disciples to eat of his body and drink of His blood. I would become an atheist in a nanosecond if an intimate relationship with God required ritual cannibalism. But even using bread and wine to represent Christ’s body and blood should be a clear signal that symbolism is being used. Bread and wine would have more relevance to our salvation if it signified the higher and non-material values of spiritual love and truth, which feeds and quenches the soul. Do we not hunger for greater meaning and thirst for truth in our innermost being?
In Isaiah 9:20 we read “they shall eat every one the flesh of his own arm.” This desire to eat “flesh” represents a human psychical appetite that desires only corporeal things rather than God things.
The Lord’s Second Coming, and descent of the Holy City, The New Jerusalem, involves an awakening of a higher cognitive function in the human race, which has atrophied over time. Revelation involves a further metabolizing of the literal words in Scripture.
Does this information cause you any mental indigestion?
