Published in January 2015, this kick-starts our consideration of science and scripture.:
Now and then upon hearing news of scientific discoveries and deeper understanding I’ve thought, “They’re catching up with scripture”. Hence my occasional posts and re-blogs on science (eg. yesterday’s Route to Reality). Jordan Gresczyk’s latest on As He Is…So Are We, therefore, sits well in my spirit as a prophetic word. He writes.:
‘I am not a Prophet and do not claim to operate or stand in that office but I do believe God speaks to His friends. So I feel prompted by the Lord to speak this Prophetic Word. I speak it in faith. Judge it according to the Spirit.
“God is going to open the eyes of the Physicists as He opened the eyes of the Magi. Both Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. Dimensions are being opened and Paradigm Shifts are coming. New wineskins. New unshrunk clothes. I see God wiping the chalkboard clean and giving new formulas and protocols. I see theories being molded by the Spirit into realities. I see these as Secrets being given to His friends in those fields. God is saying He will be known by His creation and He will be given honour and He will be worshiped.”
‘Again I am not a prophet and I do not claim to be. If this be from Him amen and if not, let it fall to the ground.’
Readers wanting more should visit Science and Belief, a blog by Dr Ruth Bancewicz on the positive interactions between science and faith. She is the author of God in the Lab: How Science Enhances Faith, which has received many favourable endorsements from her scientific colleagues.
