Essential Theology Part 1: Parallel Dimensions?

 

"That which is has already been, and what is to be has already been; and God requires an account of what is past." Eccl 3:15

To infinity and beyond!

If you could pick one of the wildest topics in Science-Fiction it would surly be one of alternate dimensions and virtual worlds. With programs like Sliders and The Matrix the imagination is truly stimulated but hey, itís only fiction ...right?

What if I could show you that the Bible tells us and Jesus alluded to the very fact that this mortal life, our linear existence is actually an altered dimension separated from the eternal one and yet existing at the same time! Sounds too weird? Consider just what the scripture above is saying. Our past and our future have already been, and God requires an account of what is past! The implication is that to God everything is already past history and he requires an account for it all! It is not that God, sitting up in eternity has the plan all figured out and knows what he will do, itís already been done! You canít hedge around this one. Clearly by this statement alone; Heaven, Godís dwelling place of eternity is outside of time! The outcome of everything is already history from Godís perspective. That is why we have this supernatural book called the Bible, which actually holds the recorded history of mankind from beginning to end!

 

The Book: Only one story

The very name Bible simply means THE BOOK!

This Book is not just a collection of stories, poems and accounts of isolated incidents between God, Man and Satan, locked in some kind of struggle for freedom or victory. On the contrary, every book, story or poem in the Bible is interconnected to explain one story. This is the story of a creation altered and separated from Godís original intended condition by a rebel who tried to create for himself, his own universe. It is the complete story from start to finish of this distortion of time and space, resulting in the creation of a paradox universe. Godís creation then being "trapped" in an alternate existence, and in need of rescue. It is the account of an all loving God for his creation; who restored and repaired this alternate linear dimension by making the ultimate sacrifice - himself.

In the form of His only begotten Son, God became Man to restore first spiritually then physically all of creation and to put an end to the Rebel and his followers both angelic and human.

Eternal vs Linear; Our concept of "time" can be a problem.

It is hard for us to realize the concept of eternity being "trapped" in a linear existence. We only experience the present and remember the past and speculate the future. God who dwells outside of time sees and experiences it all at once.

Imagine standing on a street corner watching a parade go by. One by one you see the various floats and bands pass by until the end. Someone high above in a helicopter would be able to see the entire parade as one single event. At least in perception, the same can be said of Heaven and Earth; linear or eternal existence. Though God lives in the completed eternal state of everything accomplished according to his will, He has access to the linear state in parallel to his state at any time at any point! Heaven-Earth, Eternity- Linear are coexistent and yet very different. The Bible describes both further.

1. THE ETERNAL DIMENSION:

There are many scriptures about eternity. I will select only a few to give you an accurate overview of the concept of this realm.

A place of perfection:

Isaiah 57:15 "For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I will dwell in the high and holy place with him that is of a contrite and humble spirit..."

This scripture depicts some of the nature of God being in harmony with the abode of God, eternity. From the understanding of the Hebrew language we get a good description and a glimpse of what eternity is like. God is described as the high and lofty One. He is the actively raised One in all applications of the word raised, (as in higher level). He is also the nasa, or the one lifted up, (as in resurrected). His name is Holy or to be clean, by eminence, sacred, apart from imperfection or sin (missing the mark). He dwells in this high and holy place, an elevated place. A place of perfection without sin (meaning to miss the mark) a deviation of the intended objective!

Eternity is like a circle: "Outside of Time"             

This high and holy place is called eternity from the Hebrew root adah (aw-daw) to advance, pass on or continue. Strongís definition makes the point: a peremptory terminus, i.e. (By implication) duration, in the sense of advance perpetuity.

Now, I have to confess I had to look in my Websterís to understand what Strong was saying by putting it in simple English. To simplify, It is putting an end to or precluding a right of action, an absolute final goal or boundary. Either end of a transportation line or travel route. The final state is being perpetual, without end or beginning.

In a sense, what is being described, is taking a line from the beginning point and the ending and wrapping it together at the ends to form a circle. No beginning or ending but continuous. This act as stated in the above scriptural context is exclusively the right of God for the price he paid. The Bible actually describes this as Eternity and perhaps the actual means of accomplishing this eternal state.

Just before God was to reveal closing events to the Apostle John, Jesus reaffirmed this idea when he stated, "I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, which was, and which is yet to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:8

Jesus said to John that he was the "arche" and the "telos". The first estate, corner or beginning of time and the conclusion of (as in a levy paid) of a definite point or goal. He then concluded by stating he was the almighty, or in the Greek, Pantokrateo - one holding all authority over everything, including both dimensions.

Before the prophet Daniel revealed to Nebuchadnezzar his dream as God revealed to him, he made this inspired statement. "How great are his signs! And how mighty are his wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation." Daniel 4:3.

In Aramaic, Daniel describes the kingdom as everlasting or alam(a remote time future or past, indefinitely, forever). Alam corresponds with olam (being veiled from sight, concealed from the vanishing point) giving it this flavor to the word. From generation to generation is im dar; which is to say,(associated by huddling together, a revolution of time, an age, a dwelling.) It is from the root word duwr meaning (to gyrate, move in a circle, to remain to dwell.) Again from the etymology of these words we get the idea of the forming of a circle as a state of eternity.

In the New Testament, Jesus is described that, "...according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself." Philippians 3:21

This gathering to form a circle includes only what was intended to be created. Everything that was mixed up or incomplete will be made right according to his will and purpose. This next text of scripture includes this idea.

Understanding of the Eternal realm exclusive to God:

Ecclesiastes 3:11, "He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end."

In this text, "He hath made everything beautiful in his time," is describing a promise that everything in this linear temporal time will be made right in his time. The word used for time is eth from the Heb. root ad. This would indicate that the suitable time is apart from the linear realm and one of completion in Godís eternal realm. The next verses clarifies this idea describing mans position as being apart and incomprehensible (in mans own reasoning) from Godís eternal dimension. Vines notes on Strongís numbers puts it best:

"In Ecc 3:11 we read that God had bound man to time and given him the capacity to live "above time", (i.e. to remember yesterday, plan for tomorrow and consider abstract principles) yet he has not given him divine knowledge."

Divine knowledge of eternal things would only be imparted to fallen man as he needed it or as he is conformed into Godís likeness. It is not that God is afraid of man competing with him or enjoying some kind of role as "Master". It is for our own safety and care that he prevents us from knowledge that we would abuse and harm ourselves with. You would not give a child a loaded gun to play with even with proper instruction. He would only abuse or misuse it by the very nature that he is only a child lacking wisdom. The same immaturity exists with fallen man. We have a nature in this linear existence that would only abuse the knowledge and power of Heaven. We lack wisdom to understand the whole picture from Godís perspective, limited by our linear existence and the limitations natural to it. To usurp this is to become a rebel and a spoiled child demanding to play with a loaded gun. We thereby have been limited in our access and understanding of certain knowledge, only for our own protection. Our trust then is to not cross certain boundaries of "concealed knowledge" or what is today called occult knowledge, and rely upon sufficient grace through Godís revealed means. In doing this we are promised an abundant life, able to sustain us and keep us through for the short time we are here in this distortion of a dimension we call Mortal Life. Jo 10:10, Jude1:24,25, Ps 55:22, Php 4:19.

To try and grasp this understanding of eternity, we can see it as the linear time line of mankindís total history wrapped up from end to end, purged from anything not in God's intended creation and connected into a circle of his perfect will. No past no future, only now, with all things coexistent with each other and made perfect to his will. This of course has already been done in another parallel dimension- Heaven!

A glimpse of these points coming together?

Consider the condition we find the earth in described in Genesis 1."In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep."

The Hebrew words Tohuw and Bohuw are used here to describe the condition of the earth. It is more commonly accepted that the translation should be desolation and laid waste with death and despair upon the face of the deep or abyss. With this understanding it has always been suggested that the earth was left in this condition because of a prior rebellion of Satan and his angels. I would like to suggest that their was no prior "falling" of Satan. This condition is the end result of earth and the beginning coming together. This is the exact state described In Rev21:1 and 2Pe3:7,12. Satan as we will see in the Mystery of Iniquity chapter originally fell in the Garden but is falling and will continue to fall until tossed into the lake of fire because linear time is the fall, it is ongoing until the end of linear time!

LINEAR - MORTAL DIMENSION:

Linear was not Godís intention

The first fact that is very important to establish in your thinking is the fact that this whole dimension; the earth, the ski, heavens and all contained in this material universe is included as being outside of Godís intended and designed Kingdom. Let us consider what Jesus said to Pilate as he was brought before the Romans for trial. John 18:36, "...My Kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence". Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a King then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a King. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice."

Foolish miss-quotes of this scripture have tried to suggest that Christ was an extra-terrestrial. By going back to the original language this is not even remotely what is implied! Jesus said that his basileia (realm and rule) were not of this Kosmos, (orderly arrangement, adorning, The total sum of the material universe.) Clearly this spatial realm we call our universe, our linear existence, is not Godís order. It is separated and apart from Godís intended creation. Yet, at the same time, the Bible tells us that all things were created by God and that nothing was created without him.(1Col 1:16,17) By this there is the understanding of ruler-ship. God is in control of everything. Nothing is beyond his control. There is in this sense a creation by extension. God created Satan, who then fell and imitated creation by his deceiving Adam and Eve. This deception placed them in this distorted linear dimension and produced mortality with death waiting in the end. This distorted creation is an imitation by Satan and a parallel universe to the real thing. It is however, ultimately the creation by extension from God, who is still in control, as this is all part of his plan to mature a relationship with his creation. Our mortal linear existence is actually an alternate universe! This statement makes that fact quite clear. Jesus' follow up statement to Pilate states his intentions and purpose on earth in this linear dimension. He did not come to be a King and set up rule, but to make a way for his creation back to where they belong in eternity with him! This whole universe or dimension will come to an end. 1Jo2:17. It will not be redeemed or changed into a utopia with world peace for more than a "holding pattern" of a thousand years. Rev20:1 Then it will end with a "new heaven and earth." Rev21:1

Now that we understand that this whole physical realm or dimension we call reality or mortal life is outside of Godís intended creation we need to understand how we got here?

A Garden; Two Trees, and a Wrong Decision.

Our Original Intended Heritage:

Man was created with the intension of being an eternal being, to live and have fellowship with God. Godís desire was to share all that he was and had with his creation. While the specifics are not mentioned in Genesis, along with the rest of the well-known story, these facts are revealed as the promises of reconciliation by faith in Christís work on the cross. Why were we created? Some False Prophets today are claiming we were created to be a slave labor force to mine this planet. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 Rev 4:11 "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

From this stated claim, we being part of creation were created for Godís pleasure. Not that his pleasure was for us to be subordinate slaves. Jesus expounded on just what the Fathers pleasure was concerning us. "...for it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom." Luke 12:32

Give his Kingdom or Dimension to us?

Rom 8:17, "and if children, (of God) then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ:" Rev 5:13 and Matt28:18 says that Christ is given all power in heaven and earth. Both domains are in his ultimate control and we shall be joint heirs to the eternal one with him. The awesome reality is that we are to be as brothers to the very one whom redeemed us. This certainly does not sound like a God who is afraid of competition from his own creation as some recent claims state. There is a final offer to a portion of mankind who has accepted the only way of redemption, the only way back to the eternal dimension. It is this group of people, reconciled to God that may freely eat of the other tree, the tree of life. Rev 2:7, Rev 22:14.

I hope you can see from these few scriptures that the original creation and intension of God was to share all that He is , all that He has, with his creation to be an undeserving equal part in all of creation eternally. We were already made in His likeness, (Gen1:27) the promises were already ours to partake.
 

The real Garden of Eden:

Two naked people- a man and a woman, a tree, an apple and a snake. Really?

First let's look at the tree.

The Hebrew word for tree used in Gen 2:9 has an emphases on the product from it's origin to be utilized in the sense of making firm or fasten, to close or seal. In this sense the tree is more of a door or gateway. The word for tree also has much in common with the Hebrew word for generations. It is how and why we get the idea of a "family tree." With a trunk branches, leaves and fruit, this "tree" could symbolically be suggesting an opening to another dimension. With this in mind the two trees of Genesis, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life could represent pathways or dimensional portals whose entrance depends upon a decision of faith or disobedience in the form of self-reliance.

The fruit, which the Bible never said was an apple, is the catalyst that transforms man, time and space into a mortal, linear existence. This was never the intention of God but the result of a wrong decision by man.

What about the serpent?

"Now the serpent was much more subtle than any beast of the fields which the Lord God had made...And the Lord God said, " Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and dust  shall you eat all the days of your life." Genesis 3:1p,14

Are we to believe that the initiator was a snake or a temporarily demonized one? Again, by going back to the Hebrew word usage, quite a different picture and claim can be made. Nachash, the Hebrew word for serpent means snake from its hiss. Its root word means to enchant or to prognosticate. The emphasis is on the action of the snake as being like a snake not necessarily that it is a snake. Dr. Henery M. Morris states in his book, The Genesis Record, that some (scholars) maintain that Nachash originally meant upright shining creature. This would give a whole new perspective to the "serpent". He is said to be subtler that all the other creatures created by God. Subtle means intelligence applied in a crafty or manipulative manner. This certainly is not talking about the reptile we know as a snake. In Gen 3 we get the illustration that because the serpent deceived Adam and Eve he would be made to crawl on his belly and eat dust for the rest of his life. Again by going back to the original language and redefining these words in light of 21st century knowledge, the story takes another very realistic twist. The Hebrew, "al gachown yalak" for upon the belly and life can actually mean, "from above a reptile, (as superior) from the issue of the fetus as being outside the belly you will continue on in your material life. Only in modern times could this scripture be understood for what it might imply. A superior reptilian form that carries on life outside of normal reproduction can be by the means of cloning! A seraphim is an order of angelic being. In word etymology, seraph means reptile in Sanskrit. Even Doctors Young and Strongís in their Concordanceís of the Bible concur with these word definitions without drawing these rather strange conclusions! Dr. Spiros Zodhiates Th.D. comments in his Hebrew-Greek Study Bible about the word "cursed" in Gen3:

"This word has been interpreted as meaning to bind (with a spell) to hem in with obstacles, to render powerless, to resist. Thus the first curses in Gen3:14,17, "Thou art cursed above all cattle, and Cursed is the ground for thy sake" means, "You are banned from all the other animals" and Condemned be the soil [i.e., itís fertility to men is banned] on your account.

In light of this possible meaning to the scriptures just who or what is this Nachash?

The Nachash

Is this the image of the Biblical Nachash?

The evidence is uncanny! As a former member of M.U.F.O.N. (Mutual UFO Network a serious organization composed of professionals from the scientific community) and a U.F.O. researcher, the alleged information about these "Grayís" line right up with this possible understanding from the scriptures. It is said: with an agenda following, that these "Grayís are of superior intelligence having two brains. They do not possess sexual organs and have sensory organs that are somewhat atrophied. They say they continue on in life by transferring their conciseness to a cloned replica of themselves when damaged. They are reptilian in nature and have the ability to hypnotize or freeze their victims. They claim to have created mankind and are here to bring us up to the next level of our "evolution". They are seen in a bright sudden and startling appearance from the skies. Their bodies also appear to shine in the dark.

Redefining the trees and the serpent in this way gives us a much more realistic 21st century setting for what happened in the Garden of Eden.

Wrong choice made:

A wrong choice was made putting man in a lesser state, spiritually separated from God, physically in a lesser form and placed into an entire altered dimension. Regardless of weather you believe the tree, fruit and serpent are literal or alluding to something more elaborate, the fact remains that mankind made a wrong choice. The result was that man was sent out of the garden. The Garden suggests potentiality. If you have a garden, it is a place sectioned off with the anticipation of producing beauty or fruit. In our case it produced the necessity for man to leave. Imagine a circle, and within that circle, is the potential of the garden. With the wrong choice having been made by Adam and Eve, a line is projected out and away from the circle. In effect this is what happened as a result of the Eden experience. The biggest con job ever put upon anyone is here in the Garden of Eden.

 "Now the serpent was more subtle (crafty, intelligent) than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made... And the serpent said unto the woman, Yea shall surly not die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be open, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Genesis 3 :1,4,5

 

A Physical change results

In the Hebrew, Towb and ra are used for good and evil. Their roots mean to make good or to spoil. In this sense the words are depicting a quality or state of being as well as the knowing of the difference between the two. This is the where the smooth deception is deployed. Adam and Eve were already made in the image of God. (Gen 1:27). They had completeness both spiritually and physically. God walked with man, there was a complete spiritual harmony. There was also a complete physical harmony. I believe Man had full use and potential of his brainís capacity. His very biology was also in harmony with Godís intended desire. Had Adam and Eve turned down the temptation of the serpent, they would have been invited to eat from the tree of life. They were truly first class creations. They were just not aware of it or anything different from it. By partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they became aware of this difference only because they were now in a lesser state.

Their very biology had changed by making this wrong choice. They now became a second rate creation. There eyes did become open, and in this lesser state they became as "naked" before God, this change was obvious in their hindered state. With only one tenth of there brain capacity at hand and an addition of a blood system they were made fragile and mortal. This addition of a blood system is very important. It was this addition that projected this line of existence away from God, and eternity into the linear mortal dimension. There are scriptures to support this idea.

Blood in; Blood out:

It was blood that got us into a mortal existence and a different blood that once shed would bring us back to the previous existence.

1. Adamís statement in regards to the newly formed Eve, "And Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh." Gen2:23. I believe the absence of the mention of blood is very important. This was before the temptation and they had no blood as they were created like their Father. After the resurrection, Jesus describes himself as not a spirit but as a living being flesh and bone minus blood. He is in the eternal state without blood. (Luke 24:39)

2. "The life of the flesh is in the blood." Lev 17:11 Mortal life is in the blood. This mortal life was given only as a result of the wrong choice during the temptation. Blood is the only dietary law carried over into the New Testament, in the prohibition of eating it. Lev 17:10 and Acts 21:25.

3. "Flesh and Blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God." 1Co 15:50 In Godís eternal kingdom, only perfection according to his will, can exist with him, Flesh and Blood not included.

Two types of flesh:

I must include here the two types of "Flesh" as defined by the Bible, each belonging to a separate dimensional existence.

1Co 15:39-48, "All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differs from another star in glory. So is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening (life giving) spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, the second man is the Lord from Heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is heavenly, such as they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly."

Mortal life then, being produced by the addition of a blood system from a wrong choice is further defined from the above text. There is a glory of a terrestrial body. But, it was created in corruption, dishonor and weakness. That only produced death. Existing in this form we are "natural" and inclined to behave in the natural manner. It is not our fault as if we had any choice in the matter, all decedents afterward would simply behave and take on the nature that the linear environment dictated.

This was the whole point and mission of God becoming a man. The second Adam would undo what was done in the Garden in the same manner only with the elimination (or pouring out) of a blood foreign to the influence of this altered state.

Man exiled from eternity for his own protection:

4. Old Testament Law dictated that: "It is the blood that maketh atonement for the soul." Lev 17:11. This is further explained in the New Testament in Heb 9:22, "...without the shedding of blood is no remission." Jesus said in Matt 26:28, "...for this is my blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for remission of sins"

One wrong decision allowed Satan (the rebel usurper) to alter Godís creation into a lesser form. God had to put mankind into a linear existence as a "holding pattern" so he would not become eternally stuck in this lesser state. Genesis 3:22 "Behold the man has become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden."

This was the beginning of linear time, human history as we know it today. Man had to leave the eternal realm for his own protection. Separated from his intended home until a time when God would be able to restore all things. A common mistake is that if God is all powerful, why didnít he just change things then ? Why wait? God has an order, a physics on how things work and inter-relate. I do not believe he will break his own rules. He can but he doesnít.

2Peter 3:8,9, "But, beloved, be not ignorant of one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promises, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."

With this text in mind, imagine a pool of crystal clear water, perfectly calm, reflective of the ski and trees like a mirror. Suddenly, someone throws a rock into the middle of it. The reflection is gone and will not be experienced again until the last ripple has been carried out by the action of the rock. That is what linear time is; the resulting action at Eden which must be carried out to the finish. Every person that God had intended to create must experience his or her own "ripple" in linear time. He does not intend to lose anyone the Father has given him. John10:27,28 When the last of God's seed has been born and given a chance to accept Christ, God can then put an end to time and Satan. There is no battle being fought with an undetermined winner. God is merely putting up with Satan and his plans until his precious seed has come to fullness. Then he will harvest his wheat and gather the tares to be burned. Matt13:38,43. Tares are those that hear another voice and reject Christ. They are a different seed, the seed of the serpent. This is a sad reality and one I will address further, later.

5. Adam the very name means to be made red or ruddy (as flushed in the face). It also has a variation meaning "lesser man". In the Bible, names have an important meaning. In Adams case it is almost prophetic.

6. It was a chilling realization when I looked up the Hebrew name for blood. It is DAM, and it is in this sense that we all truly have been damned, or made to have blood, and destined to physical death.

 

THE UNIQUENESS OF CHRIST: A bridge between two dimensions.

Romans 5:19, "For as by one manís disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous."

One act brought about this lesser existence and one more act brought a way back. This is what the Gospel is all about! Gospel means Good News. There is uniqueness in the person of Christ. Only he as God, became a man, like us in every way except his blood unnatural to this dimension. This gave him the power to overcome this world system and altered universe. Representing his own dimension he lived out a life according to his own ways (The Law). By this he was not subject to the laws of this universe. Rom 6:23. We were already damned. (or blooded) Rom3:23. The fact is we didnít have to do anything. By being born into this dimension, it and everything in it is missing the mark, which is the definition for sin. Because of this we are naturally going to go the way of this universe. How fruitless it is to try and work or be good enough to go somewhere else. God says it is impossible for man. Only what one unique man did could change it. We canít earn it or work for it we just accept it as a free gift. He did it for us. It is so easy it is offensive to many. You canít do anything but accept it. This is why he dwells with the humble and contrite of spirit.(Isa57:15) That is what it takes on our part. Submission to the one who loved us so much, he had a plan of self sacrifice right from the beginning.

In this context you can understand all of Christianityís narrow focus upon only one way with one person. It is not intolerance, as many have accused Christianís of being. It is the realization that only one person accomplished the sacrifice to make a way out for all of us stuck in this fallen dimension. Jesus himself made this narrow statement, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." John 14:6 He made no doubt about his uniqueness. "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,..." "He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." John 10:9+p1.

The fact of only one way by one person has nothing to do with accumulating knowledge or levels or steps to anything. In light of understanding two dimensions and the fact that we are caught in the lesser one, powerless to deliver ourselves, it is the act of Love that has made a way out for us. No "ascended master," "Avatar" Prophet or "Christ conscienceless" sacrificed himself and rose from the dead to make a way of restoration. This was a free gift of grace, a sole act of God himself that accomplished this task. He made the way freely because he knew we were powerless to do anything ourselves. You cannot "learn" your way out of this dimension, You cannot "earn" your way out of it. You can only humbly submit to the free gift and offer to come back to the path away from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, to the path that leads to the tree of life.

Re-cycled Humanity is illogical to this model

Understanding the idea of grace an unwarranted favor, the uniqueness of one God who became man to restore everything, it makes no sense or logic to this model to believe in any concept of recycling through the idea of reincarnation. Reincarnation states that all the above scriptures about redemption are wrong that what Jesus did was not sufficient enough. It is a seduction and lie from the rebel! In this sense, we are no different than Adam and Eve. We have the same choice they had to make in our own life. Two trees, one choice. One tree or dimension leads to death one leads to life. It canít get any simpler than that.

WHY? (A bunch of rich kidís in heaven)

The most often asked question once I have convinced someone of the possibility of our mortal linear existence is in reality a parallel altered universe, is WHY? Why did a loving God allow such a horrible thing to happen.

Not to lower Godís concept of love to Manís carnal level but so that you can relate to His eternal supreme majesty and power; Imagine if you will, that you had all the power over minds and hearts to make everyone automatically love you. Total acceptance by everyone. In our baser desires and wants, you would have friendship, love and romance by anyone and everyone at your personal desire. A novel idea at first but in time this would begin to be empty in the sense of always knowing that it was your power over them that made everyone respond to you . How much deeper, how much richer would the relationships be if they choose you because they wanted to or that they even were aware of a choice?

In the same respect but of a much higher level than manís carnal idea of love, God, desired to bring this love relationship with his children further along. This higher level of love is not motivated in the sense that God is lacking anything. Rather it is his desire for a more richly, deeper, mature relationship with his creation. His children never knew anything but perfection. They never experienced or knew of anything less. Not being their fault, but they would be like a bunch of spoiled rich kids! This situation is not the result that they were doing anything wrong. They simply couldnít appreciate what they had as never knowing anything else!

The only way a mature relationship could be accomplished would be to give creation a choice. This choice would obviously mean the creation of something with the potential of being the opposite and in contrast of himself. Satan was created as Godís right hand man. Man then, stood in the middle, the outcome was already know and the plan made ready. Man would choose the wrong tree or path and it would then only be fair that God himself would have to correct the error.

In doing this, when all is come to completion, man and all of creation sees by experience what anything less than Godís perfection would be like. They would also appreciate much deeper the relationship they have with their creator. Because Godís love for his creation is so great he insures that none of his creation will be "lost" in the whole process. This is why everyone in his or her own personal way (who was in the original plan, or the "Book of Life") will respond to his love in their time of mortal life. All they would have to do is exercise their own free will to overcome the artificial realities of this mortal life and respond to Godís prompting and Love. And they will! It is Godís guarantee of faithfulness and love for his creation.(Jo10:28,29)

What is gained by all of this? Man receives a deeper appreciation of the person of God. He receives a forever awe of the willing price God himself was willing to make to have this deeper relationship. He enters into a maturity knowing and experiencing something opposite of Godís perfection. Nothing is taken for granted and everything is appreciated with a depth that could not be realized in any other way. This new and deeper relationship with God is so Heaven and Earth shaking that it is necessary that a "new heaven and a new earth are created to contain it!

Rev 21:1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;..."

In the Old Heaven, all of Godís creations were like children who though they were rich and well provided for they never could appreciate it as they had never known anything else. In the new Heaven, they are over comers. They have known the difference by experience and by faith accepted the way of redemption Now they experience their relationship as mature children. They know their inheritance as co-rulers joint heirs with Jesus!

Rev 21:7 "He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."

Rom 8:16-17 " The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; ..."

God as creator and ruler of all slides over to the side of this throne and offers each one of us to come and sit next to him and help rule! This is not the scene the Scientists Priests convey to the unbelieving world of today. This is not the action of a threatened God trying to maintain power and rule over his creation. This is the act of a God that loves his creation so much he desired to pay the entire price to achieve a higher and deeper relationship with each one!

What about our memory of those who we knew and loved who were of the anomalous seed (covered in two seeds)...the ones who reject Jesus and the only way out of this dimension? God says he will personally wipe away every tear. Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

...Behold, I make all things new...He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

How does this happen? Our understanding of all things will be complete, even as we are complete.

1 Cor 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

This was the plan all along! This is the answer to WHY?! This can be your strength for the times to come! The greatest message from space is still and always has been and always will be John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but has everlasting life."

So What about ET?

In light of understanding that we are in an altered parallel universe. One that was created solely by a wrong choice by man, this fallen universe is a product centered on the human race. In that respect we are the center of attention, in this fallen dimension. That would mean any other entity in this fallen universe would either be part of the Rebel Alliance or part of the Kingdom of God sent here to protect and to serve mankind. Yes we are that important. Understanding this then, this fallen dimension would not and did not make provisions for others in a neutral state. It is black and white. You are on one side or the other, nothing in between. Now in Godís perfect willed dimension? Wow! That is another situation altogether. Shortly after I invited Christ into my life one of the first things the Lord impressed on me was, Jim you always dreamed of going into space, what awaits you in heaven is that and much more! Forever to be a joint heir and director of Angelic affairs tells me we are doing a whole lot more than sitting on a cloud strumming on a harp! Perhaps there are other universes? No one knows for sure, but what does wait for us will be Beyond Science Fiction and my wildest dreams!

A Parallel Dimension is a reality!

One of the most bazaar ideas to be presented to mankind, the Science - Fiction thought of Parallel Dimensions is a Biblical reality! Time is part of the physical barrier that separates these two from each other. Sin, as missing the mark is why there is a separation. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, who completed the same but opposite of the wrong decision in Eden is the only way back. To circumvent this with man made technology is to try to be like God. One of two promises the Nachash gave Adam and Eve. The other being you shall not die. Cloning and the ability to "ascend into heaven" or travel time may be the false promises given to 21st century man.
