The New Physics and the New Jerusalem

My experience over the past several years with both physicists and theologians who are concerned with fundamentals is that I detect a real sense of anxiety. Both “sides” strongly believe that we are in need of a major paradigm shift.

The issue is unity.

Contemporary physicists, unable to unify the two pillars of modern physics—relativity theory and quantum theory—feel that a more adequate reformulation of these concepts still needs to be achieved. The universe cannot be based on two theories that do not mesh.

Similarly, contemporary theologians are acknowledging that a fresh approach to the doctrine of Scripture is needed to make its interpretation more inclusive and perpetually relevant to all faith-seekers, in all periods of human history, including the future. Religion, which has roots in the Latin word for ligament (ligare), meaning to bind and bring together, has unfortunately had an opposite effect all throughout history.

These problems become unimaginably intensified for those pioneering and rare individuals who are seriously attempting to unify the truth claims of both science and religion. It is useless to unify inadequate theology with inadequate scientific theory.

Humans will not find solutions to these difficult problems by means of academia and scholarship. The final answers can only come from the Lord God. Thankfully, since God wishes to share deeper knowledge about the ultimate reality with the human race, a divine delivery system has been set up to accomplish that very thing.

It is called the Lord’s Second Coming. And it is taking place right now.

Don’t look for earthquakes and great battles to begin. Rather, the Second Coming will be a shaking of the very foundations of our world-views. And the great battle to take place will happen within our hearts and minds over whether we should defend our old thinking or embrace the Lord’s promise to make all things “anew.” So God is promising a shake-up and overhaul of all our scientific and theological thinking.

The first Advent of the Lord was physical. The second is psychical. First we see, next, we understand.

The Lord is now revealing potent new concepts to the world. God’s guidance is required because these new ideas exist on deeper levels of meaning that are contained within the narratives of the Holy Word. The New Jerusalem will be a new church formed of individuals who are able to accept and adopt these doctrinal revelations into their faith-system.

How does this help science? Will modern science also benefit from the Second Coming?


As these deeper levels of meaning in Scripture are revealed to us we will be able to gain an intelligible idea of how everything in the universe and its laws emerged from patterning principles hidden within the architecture of the Holy Word (John, 1:1-3).

I have had access to these new ideas (a new dispensation from the Lord) for almost 35 years. I can attest to the potency of these revelations because they have allowed me to write a book that will address such challenging issues as the nexus between the Infinite and the finite, resolve the problem of the Big Bang singularity, the emergence of spacetime and matter from nonphysical and pre-geometric (spiritual) principles, address top-down causality, offer a new theory of evolution, provide a comprehensive multi-level model of human cognitive function, explore the neural basis of religion, answer the mystery of the Neanderthals, explain the mechanism behind hypnotism, address quantum gravity, life after death, and the reality of the spiritual world.

All this will revolve around the totally unexpected idea that LOVE is ultimate formative substance and ultimate reality. In other words, a cosmological model, based on the dynamics of love, can provide us with an exact science (with real explanatory and predictive powers).

If taking the concept of love beyond its usual romantic connotation, and making it the fundamental stuff and law-giving agent of the universe, sends a shockwave through your brain, then congratulations. You have just experienced a small taste of what the “end of days” really address.

If you have been following my posts you will know how to gain access to the hottest news to come directly out of heaven.

I am sure you must have lots and lots of questions.

    Please don’t mind. This might interest you.

    The SecondComing of Jesus has already happened in the form of the PromisedMessiah 1835-1908 fullfilling the signs as prophesised by Jesus and Muhammad. In my opinion, the Christians, Muslims and Jews should accept him.

    Kindly visit my blog for interesting posts in this connection for your peaceful comments and or discussions on the pages/posts there. Differing opinions are also welcome.

    Dear paarsurrey,

    Does your discussion of the Second Coming provide insights as to how science and theology can be unified or just focus on theology? The purpose of my blog is to offer various ways of supporting the idea that “God and science are one.”

    Thanks for your visit.

    Thank you for your response.

    Kindly access my blog and read my page/write-up titled

    “There is no contradiction in Religion and Science” dated 2008/05/23. This might have a relevance with your post “God and science are one”

    In a way yes, my discussion of the Second Coming provides insights as to how science and theology can be unified . The Christians believe that Jesus would come again in this world. If taken literally that Jesus would come physically, it becomes mythical and against the Science or Scientific Method; and more so because it has never happened nor it is likely to happen.The Second Coming in the form of the PromisedMessiah 1835-1908 not only cofirms that the Religion is correct but it also alleviates the distance with the science.

    Hello paarsurrey,

    There is growing interest among scientists and theologians to have dialog. I am pleased that you can offer another approach to this important topic. However, according to Emanuel Swedenborg, Jesus was more than a prophet – Jesus is Jehovah.

    I have two other posts entitled “Jesus is Jehovah,” and “The Divine Rope-A-Dope,” which address this issue. Swedenborg (as well as Muslims), reject the idea of Christian Orthodoxy that God is three “Persons.”

    GOD IS ONE! (Also see my post “Three Gods or One God?”)

    Swedenborg approaches the idea of a Holy Trinity as “operations” or “functions” of the One God – such as Divine Love, Divine Wisdom, and Divine Activity. By describing the triune nature of God from “functions,” we now have a means of applying God’s character to the dynamics of the physical world – such as force, kinetic energy, and measurable result.

    Natural laws and forces are simply spiritual laws and forces put under the constraints of time and space. The laws of nature, when correctly understood, reveal God’s nature.

    The Second Coming involves God’s revealing Himself to humanity in newer and deeper ways. First we “see,” then we are to “understand.” Revelation could not consist of anything else and be sacred. The Second Coming is God making a dwelling place within our hearts and minds, and therefore not a physical event.
