There is a short video that you’ll see as you scroll down through this article. If you haven’t already read this part, you should read this part first, otherwise you will completely miss the point I’m trying to make.
In order to demonstrate that Jesus has infinite power, I have to begin with a brief science review. You probably studied the things I’m going to write about when you were in science classes in your high school years.
As you recall, all the elements in the universe are made up of sub-atomic particles such as protons, neutrons, and electrons. And you might also recall that protons have a positive charge.
Here’s where I’m going with this:
A few years ago, I bought a copy of a book written by a nuclear physicist named D. Lee Chesnut. The title of his book is, “The Atom Speaks”. He uses the oxygen atom as his example to demonstrate the power inside atoms. He explains that the nucleus of every oxygen atom has eight protons, and that all protons have a positive charge. Now, remember how, when you were a student in school, and your science teacher had magnets, and when when you tried to press two positively charged magnets together, they would repel each other. Positively charged particles repel each other. Thus we come to the reason for the part you just read.
Now, quoting his book:
Take one gram of protons – if you could – to the North Pole of the earth, and another gram to the South Pole. Separated by a distance of some 8,000 miles, those two grams of protons would still exert a repelling force on each other of some 58 tons!
There is enough energy packed into the atomic structure of all the atoms in 1 teaspoonful of water, to drive an ocean-going vessel from New York to Liverpool!
Here is why that happens. One of the four fundamental forces in the universe is called the strong nuclear force. That is the binding force keeps the protons in the nucleus of every atom in the universe from bursting apart in an unimaginable explosion.
Many scientists have devoted years of research, trying to discover the origin of the binding force. They still are unable to explain it. But the Bible can:
Here are the scriptures I want you to see.
From the Gospel of John:
1 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He existed in the beginning with God. 3 Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. (John 1:1~3)
From the book of Philippians:
20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
From the book of Colossians:
16 For by Him (Jesus) all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:16~17)
From the book of Hebrews:
3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of his power. (Hebrews 1:3a)
Also From the book of Hebrews:
3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (Hebrews 11: 3)
From the book of James:
18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. (James 1:18)
From the book of Jeremiah:
17 ‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you. (Jeremiah 32:17)
Now, as you watch this short video, try to imagine how many protons our Lord and Savior is holding together right now:
That video gave you a look at the Andromeda galaxy. Our planet is in one of the arms of a large spiral galaxy called the Milky Way. That’s just one galaxy. Now, according to NASA, this is how many galaxys there are in the observable universe. Now, quoting from the NASA report:
In 2012, Hubble’s extreme Deep Field image was released. Over the course of ten years, the telescope had snapped images of a tiny patch of sky for a total of 50 days. It revealed a slice of sky, about one thirty-two millionth of the sky, to be exact—scattered with twinkling galaxies of all shapes and sizes. Using this new image, astronomers estimated that there may be 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe.
That’s the observable universe. How many more galaxies are there that the NASA telescopes cannot see? Nobody knows. But what astonishes me is that He has chosen to invite every one of us to enjoy the unimaginable pleasures of heaven with Him.
I urge everyone to find some way of showing this video to everyone you know, including unbelievers. This is our opportunity to show everyone the infinite power that our Lord and Savior has!
