declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’(Isaiah 46:10) ESV
The Bible is consistent throughout because it combines spiritual concepts, like good and evil, with their physical expression in space and time as light and darkness. It describes their permanent physical separation.
The broad narrative of scripture is the conceptual backbone of the Bible. We’ve attempted to capture the essence of the broad narrative in the most simple form possible. This means stripping it down to the underlying physical causes and omitting the spiritual narrative which develops around the person of Jesus Christ.
The narrative requires both to make sense, as one is the reason for the other, but what we want to do here is show how some simple physics pervades the plan of redemption and is the reason for the form and function of the Earth, including the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.
This is just the physics part. Light and darkness, good and evil, are as fundamental as the elemental particles of which the universe is made, protons and neutrons. However, knowledge of protons and neutrons can’t save you, if you want to be saved you have to call upon the name of Jesus Christ.
A Brief Synopsis of the Broad Narrative of Scripture
|God is Light||1 John 1:5|
|Darkness is inherent to free will||John 1:5|
|Light and darkness must be physically separated||Genesis 1:6|
|God dwells in the light||Psalms 104:1-2|
|Light is above on the periphery||Daniel 12:3|
|Light, life and good are equivalent||John 3:19-21|
|Darkness, death and evil are equivalent||Job 30:26|
|Darkness is below at the center||Job 28:3|
|Once it has accumulated at the center, darkness will be cast into the furthest reaches of space||Matthew 8:12|
|Light comes down from above to the center, darkness will be gone||Revelation 21:2, 23|
God is separating light from darkness, good from evil. It’s a process. The reason for creation is to give us all a chance to experience life and make a choice between them.
