Real Power

Ephesians 1:18-23 KJVS

[18] The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, [19] And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, [20] Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, [21] Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: [22] And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, [23] Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. …

For years I have studies astronomical phenomenon, black holes, super nova, clusters and super clusters of stars and galaxies. One look at any aspect of these and you come away with multiple feelings of firstly, smallness in comparison the the vastness of the universe and secondly awe at the magnitude of The One Who by His sheer will created it all in what are billions of years on our timeline, but to Elohim are just micro-moments in eternal perspective. As a computer engineer I find myself often perplexed by minor system issues that are overwhelming, tasks that seemingly have no solutions, problems that loom large on the landscape of seemingly endless evolutions of newer, faster, superlative software and systems that grow increasingly complex and specialized. Yet, in comparison to the complexity of creation are insignificantly small. It is said that during some extremely crucial meetings that one of our great presidents and all the participants were deadlocked in discussions that were almost at an impasse, taking a breather with several staff members it is said that looking into the sky's on a clear summer night, that it was said how small and insignificant were the details of these meetings, later great breakthrough occurred, but only when recognition of how truly small were our struggles and issues in life.

Another thing that amazes and perplexes me, is how after looking at various aspects of the universe, how someone could say there is no God. Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. It take design to put in place order. Lets consider one small aspect, that of how intricately balanced universal order is.

Look at the following analogy: Imagine covering the entire North American continent in dimes and stacking them up until they reached the moon.

Now imagine stacking just as many dimes again on another billion continents the same size as North America. If you marked one of those dimes and hid it in the billions of piles you’ve assembled, the odds of a blindfolded friend picking out the correct dime is approximately 1 in 1037, which is the same level of precision required in the strong nuclear force and the expansion rate of the universe.

If the processes in the universe were so precisely designed as to create planets and stars, we’d have on one hand nothing but gas, where things expanded so fast that no accumulation would occur which is what created planets and stars, or things would have not expanded and what would exist in the universe would be black holes and neutron stars. The density of black holes and neutron stars if contained in an object only as big as a quarter would be 2 billion tons. Nothing can exist in that medium, not molecules, atoms, protons nor electrons, not even the smallest atomic particles, they would be crushed down so as the structures wouldn’t function as they do in what we know as the normal universe.

You would have to intricately tune it to 10 to the 97th time more precisely then the best examples of human engineering, creativity and design.

What this example of precision indicates is that The One Who has created space and time is at a minimum if the example of the universe is the highest order of His accomplishment that He is ten trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion times more intelligent than the sum of all human learning and accomplishments. That is.....10¹²⁰ Or ten to the one hundred twentieth power





Which is One Novemtringintillion

Can you even think of immensity on that level? And yet for GOD, this is trivial. Yes He has REAL POWER, and scripture tells us that IF the same POWER that raised Christ from the dead, dwell in you, then HE will quicken your mortal bodies. BOOM!!!!!
