The New Heaven and the New Earth
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.(Revelation 21:1-4) KJV
December 1st – God’s Rightful Place
We refer to the life after this one as “heaven” because we haven’t paid attention to what the Bible says. We’ll eventually live in a new Jerusalem at the the location presently occupied by our Earth.
December 2nd – I Make all Things New
Revelation 21 and 22 tell us about a type of Gold which is transparent like glass. We can use deductive reasoning to discern that it has a nuclei which consists of 10 ΩOxygen atoms.
December 3rd – Time no Longer
When the mystery of God is finished will time stop? Is eternity being bored out of our minds for ever and ever. Or is eternity where there’s no passage of time? We can solve this conundrum with physics.
The Broad Narrative
December 4th – No Night There
Life is temporary. What comes next? God’s given us a description of what comes next and the choice of whether or not to believe it. We acknowledge belief in God’s testimony by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior.
December 5th – A Space Between
The permanent physical separation of light from darkness, good from evil, starts by causing darkness to accumulate at the center of creation. It’s what we’re made of. Light is on the periphery.
Dwelling in the Light
December 6th – Dwelling in the Light
The reason for creation drives its purpose which, in turn, dictates its form and function. The logic of the broad narrative of scripture requires us to establish that God is light, light is in heaven, and heaven is above.
December 7th – God is Light
Christ became sin for us by sacrificially allowing protons to emit their light and become neutrons during nucleosynthesis. “The lamb slain from the foundation of the world,” isn’t poetic or symbolic, it’s physics.
December 8th – Light vs. Darkness; Good vs. Evil
Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross and the darkness immediately after it picture creation in the moments BEFORE God said “let light be,” BEFORE nucleosynthesis, the fabled “Big Bang.”
December 9th – Coming Down Out of Heaven
When the new Jerusalem comes down from God out of heaven, the Earth will be gone. What does the new Jerusalem come down to? What can we deduce about the new Earth of Revelation 21?
December 10th – Cast off the Works of Darkness
We’re children of light. We’ve been called to the light. A home has been prepared for us in the light. Let’s cast off the works of darkness and walk in the light.
December 11th – Perspective
Let’s take stock of our surroundings and gather our perspective. The word perspective doesn’t occur in the King James Bible. The idea, point of view, does. We refer to it as frame of reference.
December 12th – He Who Overcomes
Overcoming is when we allow the Word of God to change us and make us more like the Lord. It’s when we realize that there is no spoon.
December 13th – Clear as Crystal
Denying the truth about God so that we may live an immoral life with no guilt has a glitch: we all still have guilt.
December 14th – Foursquare 2.0
1+1 = 2 is math, but it is also logical. It’s an example of cause and effect.
December 15th – All Manner of Precious Stones
And the foundations of the wall of the city were layers of crystalline material arranged in order.
December 16th – No Need of Sun or Moon
God’s glory will be the light we live by, unimpeded, for the rest of forever.
December 17th – The Lamb’s Book of Life
The only way for your name to be written in the book of life is: you must believe in Jesus Christ.
December 18th – A Pure River of Water of Life
We live in a universe which is governed by physical laws. One of these is the first law of thermodynamics.
Christ is Coming
We’re supposed to be warning the people of our time of the imminent return of Jesus Christ. Are you, Christian, warning anyone about anything?
December 19th – The Signs of the Times
Jesus is coming soon. It’s Christmas and the celebration of Jesus coming as a baby, but we live in anticipation of His return as King. Many people believe that the Lord may return at anytime, but can he? What has to happen first?
December 20th – Keep the Sayings of This Book
Can you think of ways in which keeping sayings of the Bible has helped you this year?
December 21st – The Time is at Hand
The Time is at Hand. Are we ready?
December 22nd – Be Ready Always
Every Christian intellectual needs to understand the reasons why mainstream science (SciPop) doesn’t have hell at the center of the Earth or a great gulf of open space between the surface of hell and the lower mantle.
December 23rd – For What He has Done
Every one who interacts with the Bible with the intention of influencing what people think about it will be held accountable.
December 24th – Without are Dogs
Doggie heaven? Will there be any Canines in heaven?
December 25th – When They Saw the Star
Do you have a star or an angel on the top of your Christmas tree? Either one is appropriate. In keeping with the narrative of the story, it’s fitting to follow the star to the place where you give your gifts.
December 26th – The Bright and Morning Star
can phenomena, like the star of Bethlehem, be incorporated into Matty’s Paradigm?
December 27th – Take the Water of Life
Science people think that the Bible is anachronistic poetry and Bible people ignore science.
December 28th – If Anyone Adds to Them
Here’s a warning about tampering with the contents of the Bible.
December 29th – Even so, Come, Lord Jesus
If Jesus is coming quickly then what are we doing to get ready?
Anything referred to as a “scientific fact,” but which was designed expressly to support the narrative of one specific paradigm, is paradigm-dependent and therefore doesn’t fit the definition of “fact.”
RIP Popular Science (SciPop)
If you go to hell as a result of your use of SCIENCE in the manner in which it was intended, it is your problem and you have no legal recourse. SCIENCE is indemnified and is in no way responsible for your outcome.
