Faith on Fridays—Faith and finale
Faith in Jesus makes up the Mechanics of Life.
“When he was five years old, His father gave him a magnetic pocket compass to play with while he was sick in bed. As an old man, he wrote of this compass with its needle always, mysteriously turning to the north, ‘I can still remember … that this experience made a deep and lasting impression on me. Something deeply hidden had to be behind things’” (Craig Stroupe). Albert Einstein was a man of small stature but of great intuition. He saw “something deeply hidden … behind things.” In 1905 he published what he saw: E=mc2. On paper he said the visible (Mass), is actually invisible (Energy). Furthermore, he promoted the idea that a little Mass is able to produce a lot of energy.
“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God; everything we now see was fashioned from that which is invisible” (Hebrews 11:3). The Manual says the visible and invisible are related. Einstein was the first human to correctly see this deeply hidden truth behind things! However, forty year later in Japan, this truth was verified before the whole world. Fifty-five pounds of uranium was converted to 15,000 tons of explosive force, annihilating Hiroshima by force and fire. Albert saw correctly!
But wait! There’s more—“It remains that the day of the Lord will come suddenly and unexpectedly …. In that day the heavens will disappear in a terrific blast, the very elements will disintegrate in heat and the earth and all that is in it will be burnt up to nothing.” How will it happen, exactly? When will it happen? Such questions are beyond my paygrade! However, no matter what my faith is hope-filled! “This day will mean that the heavens will disappear in fire and the elements will disintegrate, but our hopes are set not on these but on the new Heaven and the new Earth which Father has promised us.
So, when the curtain of history is called, will you see “something deeply hidden … behind things?”
