The BIG BANG FACT

"His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters." - Revelation 1:14-15Big Bang, Revelation, Lord Jesus, Gethsemane, Philip, Godhead, Niagara Falls

 

As we look at these two verses, which is a partial Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ, think of it as a picture from the believer’s earthly point of view, but not from heaven’s point of view yet.  When we start to get the “big picture” at  the throne, God is revealed in Revelation Chapter 4, then the Lamb in Chapter 5 (who is the Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of the throne), who in turn is  revealed as God himself by the end of Chapter 5.  Maybe the apostles didn’t even get it right away when he informed them of this fact in the garden of Gethsemane – he was the Father. “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.   Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”

The concept of Jesus being the Son and the Father at the same time is not taught in many churches.  However, they do teach Jesus Christ is one of the three God’s of their trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.  As a matter of fact, of those three often used terms, only “God the Father” is in scripture!  Is it so hard to understand, when the one true God revealed himself to us, he did so as a humble servant, as a son, to show us the way, the truth, and the life in him?  Myself, I like to think of the Lord as the Almighty infinity rather than the tiny trinity.  And come to think about it, the word trinity is never used in scripture, but the word “Godhead” is with a capital G.  Godhead means God with emphasis on his divine nature.  For example, it is revealed in Hebrews, “For in him [Jesus Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”  Even the Lord stated about himself in John’s Gospel, “I and my Father are one.” This does not mean Jesus, a person, being in agreement with the other person, the Father, in actions and harmony; but it does mean Jesus and the Father are the one and the same person.  And please note, immediately after the Lord Jesus said “I and the Father are one,” the Jews took up stones to kill him, saying, “because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”  They knew exactly what he meant.  He was claiming to be God the Father; but it was not  a matter of a man making himself God, but of God making himself a man, Jesus Christ.

We’re not going to dwell on the similes in the scriptures here because you’ve probably heard it all before, except for “his voice as the sound of many waters.”  This statement ought to help out the scientists whose Big Bang Theory has been touted since the 1950’s.  Can you imagine in the beginning of time, when “the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters… And God said, Let there be light,” it was with a gigantic thunderous voice  a bazillion times louder than Niagara Falls, accompanied by a massive burst of the eternal Light of God.   Big Bang all right, but no theory – It’s the Big Bang Fact!

And so, until we meet again… Remember God loves you.  Read your Bible.
