"The Ordinances of Heaven"
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guideArcturus with his sons?
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
I’m sure that many of you are atheists but I’m also sure that many of you may still have some level of doubt. You may have had an unusual experience of some sort. Something that science simply could not explain. Perhaps, you’ve noticed too many coincidences, or an undeniable feeling that someone is guiding you. I firmly believe that the bible contains metaphors that can lead us to the correct theories in science. God’s word, String Theory, and Quantum Mechanism offer only pieces to the puzzle.
Jesus said, "The Pharisees and the scholars have taken the keys of knowledge and have hidden them. They have not entered nor have they allowed those who want to enter to do so.”
Scientists have now discovered that over a thousand years before Pythagoras was calculating the length of a hypotenuse, sophisticated scribes in Mesopotamia were working with the same theory to calculate the area of their farmland. These tablets bear evidence of practical as well as more advanced theoretical math and show just how sophisticated the ancient Babylonians were with numbers -- more than a millennium before Pythagoras and Euclid were doing the same in ancient Greece.
Scientific History tends not to record its failed attempts. It is written by the winners and the failures are soon forgotten. In my latest book you will discover how biblical clues can lead us to glimpses of the divine rules that govern the universe.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
I believe that science is close to discovering an answer to why we cannot see God or the kingdom of heaven.
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
Scientists have made many discoveries that are now matching biblical text. Hydrothermal vents weren’t discovered until the 1970s but mentioned in the Bible more than three thousand years ago.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Have you entered the springs of the sea?
Or have you walked in search of the depths?
The theory of relativity wasn’t even mentioned until 1632 by Galileo, and later by Einstein in 1905, thousands of years earlier, we see that it was mentioned by Job.
Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven?
My book will help you discover the SECRETS that have been kept hidden for thousands of years. It will remove all doubt and shine light into darkness. You will gain wisdom and understanding. You will learn the essence of our universe, the nature of God.
Any ideas and all comments are welcomed. I am looking forward to a long a fruitful discourse.
