“God particle found – almost!”
I just could not resist the temptation to read exactly what it was that “they” had almost found.
The physicists at CERN on the French/Swiss border had been carrying out specific experiments in order to “find” the Higgs Boson, a sub-atomic particle that gave everything mass. During their latest bouts of colliding electrons tiny fluctuations had appeared on their readings, giving rise to the possibility that what they were looking for actually existed.
After carrying out millions of “just-below-the-speed-of-light” collisions they now had a precise area of energy to concentrate on. So, after years of searching through different levels of energy, after scanning this infinite sea of possibilities, they …
Wait a minute!
Run that by me again.
Did they say “sea of possibilities”?
Now where have I heard that before?
Well, I had certainly read something similar somewhere. So, I rummaged around the attic of my rather small mind and came upon this … sound familiar?
“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters” Genesis 1:2.
Now, I don’t know about you, but my imagination can very easily persuade me that I am reading about the same thing. In fact, I would go so far to say that the quantum mechanics have “borrowed” the Genesis passage for their own very questionable ends.
I do not have a problem with this. It spurs me on to think of our loving Father allowing the scientists to try and place “creation” squarely into the Standard Model of Physics.
They will fail. Anything that is deceptive will. Especially if they try and say “we thought of it first … see, there is no God … it’s all to do with sub-atomic particles and dark energy!”
But it does make you think.
No, I do not mean think about quantum physics … I mean think about the wonder of what our Father has actually been saying to us.
If disbelieving and ignorant scientific minds can find parallels in the Bible then I am sure that there are multiple levels of meaning in the written Word.
Take, for instance, the actual language that the Bible was originally written in.
You may answer “It’s Hebrew … so what?”
I would say that changes things quite a bit. In fact it reveals that the original Hebrew language has been written primarily for Hebrews. OK that might sound a bit obvious, but it means that in order for the reader to have an appropriate understanding of what is written they should read it from an Eastern mindset.
The Eastern mindset is based upon concrete functions, whereas a Western mindset is based upon abstract objects!
Don’t get me wrong – I am not saying that I can only be saved if I speak in Hebrew. But I AM saying that there is, what I believe, the possibility to acquire an additional supernatural understanding of what the Father has said if I prayerfully take time to consider some of the Hebrew phrases – from an Eastern mindset.
So, what is an Eastern mindset?
In some respects the ancient Hebrews were a simple people living in tents, tending sheep and goats, and farming the land. Their requirements were simple and basic. And their language was a simple written form and with a concrete functional meaning:
Take the word “av” which translates into English “father”.
Av is made up of two Hebrew pictographs aleph and beyt. That is A and V (when beyt is placed after a vowel it changes from the expected B to a V).
Aleph is more than just the letter A, it is a descriptive word meaning “bull” and beyt means “tent or house”.
But the Eastern mindset sees the function not object, ie what something does as opposed to what something is. So we are not talking about a beast or an abode, rather we are talking about what their function is … the bull is used for ploughing because it is strong, the tent is the intimate relationship that goes on within the tent – in other words it is the family interactions.
So av will be “the one who exerts strength and power – the leader within the household”. In the patriarchal Hebrew family that will be the father.
This is something that contains an amazing revelation for me, which is the original language was one that emphasised action. Just look at the ten commandments … ten incredible calls to action in a language that talks “function” not “object”. God wants us to do things … AND He shows us how!
I want to go into this in more detail … to find out just what the Hebrew written form was saying. And by doing so to become equipped with the appropriate supernatural weapons to withstand all that the deceiver sends to try to destroy.
So, in my next article I will share details of the ancient Hebrew “sacred signs” or “Otiot”. These were arguably the pictographs that the Father inscribed onto stone for Moses. Interestingly, writing had already been in existence for a few thousands years (maybe!), but the Father used “simple” pictographic style symbols that were meant to be easily understood. And yet one of the earliest “proto-Canaanite” writings to be found recently in Wadi el Hol have yet to be deciphered!
But, I’m with Daniel on this one … “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries” Daniel 2:27,28
