What is the multiverse? A multiverse idea existed in Marvel and DC comic-book storylines, starting in the 1960s. It is a theory that has been laundered through these mediums, becoming ingrained in the minds of their fanbase.
Today, the concept is more popularized across our media in movies, animations, documentaries, etc., simplifying its nature for an upcoming generation to grasp and understand quickly. But why is there such an urgent push for a multiverse narrative in our day and time?
Is the origin of a multiverse pagan, a scientific marvel, or something else entirely? And does it fit within a Biblical worldview? This article aims to answer those questions while unfixing your perspective.
The Basics: Defining the Multiverse
The universal definition of the word “multiverse” is as follows:
“A hypothetical group of multiple universes.”
Various authors build on top of this simplicity: “Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them.“
Historically, the word has been used outside of physics studies for different reasons dating back to 1895 by American philosopher and psychologist William James. However, various authors state that it was first used in fiction in its “physics context by Michael Moorcock in his 1963 SF Adventures novella The Sundered Worlds (part of his Eternal Champion series).”
— Side note: the Sega Genesis fighting game Eternal Champions shares the same name as Michael Moorcock’s series, where, surprisingly, introduced a group of deceased fighters who traveled between alternate realities and timelines, engaging in a violent bloodbath for the Eternal Champion title.
In an August 2011 article, “Does the Multiverse Really Exist,” George F. R. Ellis writes:
“The word “multiverse” has different meanings. Astronomers are able to see out to a distance of about 42 billion light-years, our cosmic visual horizon. We have no reason to suspect the universe stops there. Beyond it could be many — even infinitely many — domains much like the one we see. Each has a different initial distribution of matter, but the same laws of physics operate in all.”
It is interesting to mention that a brief of this article states that “The notion of parallel universes leapt out of the pages of fiction into scientific journals in the 1990s.” It’s a complimentary ode to “when life imitates art,” but more accurately, “when fiction heavily influences scientific researchers who, in turn, heavily influenced the fiction they inspired.”
Levels to this
Jstor Daily writer Jess Romeo refers to the work of Max Tegmark, who says the multiverse can be leveled into a hierarchical structure where each reality grows “progressively different.” Jess says, “Real-life multiverse theories include everything from branching timelines to exact copies of our world.”
Each level is described in the following fashion:
Level 1 — a foreseeable universe where parallel realities exist beyond it
Level 2 — a multiverse containing multiple level 1 multiverse
Level 3 — the multiverse surrounding you (timeline splits, etc.)
Level 4 — the multiverse outside of space and time; the very laws and principles that uphold the multiverse structure
Max Tegmark’s work provides an initial baseline for anyone wanting a common understanding of how the multiverse in conjunction with timelines works. Readers can view his writing to dive deeper into Max’s four levels of a parallel universe.
The Multiverse: an Ancient Idea?
An online article titled “The Multiverse Is an Ancient Idea” by Matthew Sedacca states the following:
“The earliest hints of the multiverse are found in two ancient Greek schools of thought, the Atomists and the Stoics. The Atomists, whose philosophy dates to the fifth century B.C., argued that the order and beauty of our world was the accidental product of atoms colliding in an infinite void. The atomic collisions also give rise to an endless number of other, parallel worlds less perfect than our own.”
Let’s discuss the “accidental product of atoms colliding in an infinite void.”
Genesis 1:2 says, “And 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” (KJV).
Self-proclaimed and academically trained scientists who have tried to explain the existence of our planet, sometimes unknowingly come in alignment with scripture. This article and scripture agree that “the earth was without form, and void.”
But as always, human science and the Bible digress regarding the how-I-got-here argument. According to the article, Atomists believe in the creation of things separate from a central divine being, such as Jesus Christ in the Bible. Atomists held that infinite worlds are created constantly through this “interval collision of atoms giving rise to an endless number of parallel worlds” less than their own in atomic structure.
Stoics merely parallel their Atomist opposites believing that the universe deteriorates and regenerates itself anew powered by an “eternal, indestructible soul.”
More than likely this “eternal soul” again is not the God of the Bible but an imagined higher power born from the deepest recesses of human thought. Essentially, the Stoics and Atomists are not so different despite their varying viewpoints.
The article closes the details of the early, modern multiverse with Mr. Sedacca referring to Gottfried Leibniz’s development of “possible worlds,” which will be covered more in-depth later:
“In his Discourse on Metaphysics, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz developed a notion of ‘possible worlds’ that arose from the question of what world God would choose to bring into existence. On his view, God was restricted to consider from a supply of worlds that were not contradictory, and whose laws of physics were consistent. Although these possible worlds exist in the mind of God, Leibniz held that God’s goodness required that he only bring into physical existence the ‘best of all possible worlds’ — our world.”
Matthew Sedacca states that the past thinkers may have flaws in their theories due to their “reliance on theology,” making their claims more “unscientific.” The further scientists try to distance their findings away from God, the closer they unintentionally seem to near Him, finding it difficult to separate discussions of the material world from the immaterial realm.
The Multiverse as Explained in Marvel and DC
Marvel’s iteration of a multiverse does not stray far from the information earlier expressed. However, it does involve its caveats. From the concept section in Marvel’s Multiverse Wikipedia, it describes it as the following:
“The Multiverse is the collection of alternate universes that share a universal hierarchy. A large variety of these universes were originated from another due to a major decision on the part of a character. Some can seem to be taking place in the past or future due to differences in how time passes in each universe. Often, new universes are born due to time traveling; another name for these new universes is an ‘alternate timeline’. Earth-616 is the established main universe where the majority of Marvel books take place.”
Marvel’s version of God, The-One-Above-All, is recognized as “the Creator of All Universes must be far more powerful than all of his creations combined,” as mentioned by Thor in Thor Annual #14.
The One-Above-All oversees all sources of creation as he is outside of time and space, yet not in the same way that Paul describes Yahweh of the Bible, stating God’s infinite nature as parallel to the time humans exist in: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8 KJV).
Different realities in Marvel comics are distinguished by identifying an Earth label and the number hyphenated after it (Ex. Earth-1983). The primary reality majority of the Marvel narratives operate Earth-616. The existence of a multiverse in Marvel is both overt and covert, offering opportunities for other stories to be told under the Marvel umbrella.
An example of this would be Marvel’s Ultimates, which exists in Earth-1610, where Iron Man’s backstory, for instance, of his chest injury is derived from birth rather than his main marvel counterpoint, who suffered an injured heart from broken shrapnel.
The multiverse in DC comics is a “cosmic construct” where the worlds share space and fate in common, as mentioned by Dan Wallace in 2008’s The DC Comics Encylopedia under the section of the alternate Earth.
In the DC universe, Perpetua, a member of a race of supercelestial beings known as “The Hand,” created the multiverse realm that holds all the Earths in existence within DC. Like Marvel, these different “Earths” are also identified with an Earth label accompanied by a hyphenated number (Ex. Earth-9). In DC, Earth-0 or Prime Earth is the primary setting for most DC narratives over the years.
Marvel and DC have consistently identified their multiverse as the existence of parallel realities (or numerous dimensions) to a home Earth where the primary story continuity manifests.
In the “Spider Wars” narrative arc of the 1994’s Spider-Man the Animated Series, the storyline concludes with a sadistic Peter Parker bonded with the Carnage symbiote, ready to eviscerate the entire multiverse with a “Time-Dilation Accelerator.”
Peter Parker from Marvel’s Earth-616 is the leader of a group of other web slingers from alternate realities to stop Spider-Carnage at any cost. It is essential to differentiate between “timelines” and “realities” because timelines indicate different points in the past, present, and future.
Alternate realities could be happening simultaneously at the exact moment, but just in other realms.
That Spider-Man story arc never specifies if these “Spider-Men” were recruited on separate timeline points. If people are not familiar with the older animated series, Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness further popularize the concept and execution of Marvel’s idea of a multiverse.
The movie focuses on shifting between different parallel dimensions without regard to traveling on time points in the same vein as Avengers: End Game.
The Difference between the Multiverse and Timelines
Jackie Jennings from SyFy Wire says, “a multiverse contains separate, distinct entities that may have their own timelines.” Traveling between realms is not time travel; traveling through time is not traversing multiple dimensions.
As the author, this is a challenge that I present when discussing these two subjects. In the following illustration, I offer an idea of how time travel operates versus what multi-reality traveling may appear.
In the first illustration, we constantly exist in a single reality in the present moment. But we are not experiencing a collision of different realities unseen to the naked eye. At least not at this moment.
In a multiverse model, each realm would possess its distinct timeline relative to the world in which its inhabitants exist. When we think of alternative timelines, it is possible to state that a character traversing one reality to the next is leaving their present realm and arriving in a new reality at a different time.
Movies have the power and authority to cement fictional ideals as fundamental truths without any challenge or pushback from their audience. The Back to the Future series successfully filtered the abstract of time travel through a concrete entertainment model easy for all Americans to accept.
In Back to the Future part 2, Doctor Emmett Brown explains to Marty McFly how time travel works in their universe:
Doc Brown: “Obviously, the time continuum has been disrupted creating this new temporal events sequence resulting in this alternate reality.
Marty: “English Doc.”
Doc Brown [draws on chalkboard]: “Imagine that this line represents time. Here’s the present: 1985. Here’s the future and the past. Prior to this point in time , somewhere in the past, the timeline skewed into this tangent creating an alternate 1985. Alternate to you, me, and Einstein [pet dog], but a reality for everyone else.”
In Avengers: End Game, the viewers are introduced to a new time travel gospel through Professor Hulk’s genius:
“Think about it: if you travel to the past, that past becomes your future. And your former present becomes the past which can’t now be changed by your new future.”
In this same clip, Paul Rudd’s character, Scott Lang, identifies Back to the Future as “a bunch of bulls***.” However, based on Emmett Brown’s fictional illustration, both concepts have striking similarities: traveling back in time is what creates an alternate reality in the first place.
In his book Higher Dimensions, Parallel Dimensions, and the Spirit Realm, Dan Duval elaborates further on science fiction developments with time travel:
“In certain types of science fiction stories, one will find an allusion to multiple timelines. In the world of make-believe, multiple timelines imply that multiple ‘copies’ or ‘versions’ of a person exist in alternate universes (parallel dimensions). However, in each universe, a slightly different sequence of events occurs. While a particular individual may get married in one universe, in another universe that marriage may never happen. In a third universe they may get married twice, and limiting potential universes to three, the person would get married three times in all. The question is, do parallel dimensions allow for fully independent chronologies?”
Here is a visual of how differentiating between realities with their timelines would look:
Hollywood has done an outstanding job of interpreting an academic abstract of time travel and externalizing it for digestible entertainment, but does it hold to the actual research in scientific academia?
In a scholarly article titled “The Case for Time Travel” by Phil Dowe he presents this challenge to popular media:
“What is time travel? Intuitively, the idea is simple enough to have dominated science fiction books, movies and TV throughout the twentieth century. But defining time travel is not so simple. According to Paul Davies time travel is travel to other times, just as we travel spatially to other places.”
Scott Aaronson, founding director of UT Austin’s Quantum Information Center, was interviewed in 2019 by The Ringer website. His view of time travel relative to quantum physics aligns with Phil Dowe’s point about the definition not being so simple:
“The accuracy bar for invocations of quantum mechanics in film is unbelievably low, even by the usual standards of science in film. In movies I’ve seen, ‘quantum’ (and ‘entanglement’ and so on) just function as voodoo-words for whatever the writers want to have happen.”
Avengers: End Game focuses on traveling to a previous reality and returning to the present to make things right. Back to the Future, on the other hand, assumes a future based on present-day actions. The Ringer article states Avengers: End Game’s “philosophy falls more along the lines of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.”
While this is a very simplistic approach to understanding time travel, it conflicts with the “no destinations” objection developed by William Grey. In Phil Dowe’s article, he pairs William Grey’s “no destinations” objection with the “Heraclitean” conception:
“On the Heraclitean view, there can be no time travel, Grey argues. Firstly, there can be no time travel to the future. If there is no determinate future, there simply is nowhere to go. Travel requires the existence of the destination. Secondly, there can be no time travel to the past, because the past is ‘fixed and determinate and not subject to change.’ Time travellers to the past could, contrary to the Heraclitean view, effect changes. It assumes the past is ‘causally accessible.’ “
Time is linear. Regardless of whatever theories and hypotheses we want to believe, humans are, for a fact, constricted to one timeline with a more significant entity that is outside of time. From a biblical worldview, how has God set up other realities naked to the physical eye, and how does the supernatural realm interact with the world we know today?
The Bible Multiverse — Parallel Dimensions, Possible Worlds, Our Reality, Alternate Realities, and the Supernatural Realm
The reality of a Biblical multiverse is not necessarily explained through traditional scientific means.
For example, in 2 Corinthians 12:1–4, Paul illustrates an account of a man caught up in “paradise,” which is beyond our natural land:
“It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”
King James Version
Many speculate that Paul is referring to himself but is speaking in the third person to avoid others exalting him for his experience. Many may see this as an “astral projection” experience from an occultic standpoint. But this occurrence is not unique to Paul’s vision.
There are other times where instances of teleportation or realm transference have happened. Genesis 5:24 states, “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” This is an Old Testament [past] event which is verified through New Testament [future] scripture in Hebrews 11:5, where Paul writes:
“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God“(KJV).
Strong’s Greek translation of the word “translated” is μετατίθημι metatíthēmi which means “to transfer, i.e. (literally) transport, carry over, change sides.” Enoch was moved over from his natural state to a celestial form that is acceptable and native to the dimension in which God resides. According to Hebrews 11:5, the only reason Enoch experienced this was because of his faith. Today, we all have that same opportunity to be “translated” by believing on Jesus Christ, our act of faith (Acts 16:31 KJV).
The belief aspect of salvation is crucial as it is an invitation for God’s will to manifest in our lives, experiencing His supernatural goodness. However, the funny thing is that a person’s belief will have no bearing on if the spiritual realm, Jesus Christ, God, angels, demons, etc., exists simply because one does not believe it. The lack of belief is merely a limitation for yourself.
The presence of multiple realities lies within the eyes of God, who sees the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day”(2 Peter 3:8 KJV). This scripture reflects God’s omniscience outside of time while His creations abide in and around the Earth, confined to a linear time and space.
In Daniel Duval’s book, Higher Dimensions, Parallel Dimensions, and the Spirit Realm, he speaks on the validity of choice in his chapter “Touching on Parallel Dimensions.” The author uses a simple example of how choosing to get out of bed to make a specific reality manifest can have either profound or mild effects:
“Every morning that I wake up and choose to be productive, the potential reality of staying in bed does not manifest. However, prior to my decision, it exist a possible future. Only once I make a decision does the possible future cease to be a possible future. Instead it gives way to manifested history.
However, I believe that somewhere in the spirit realm (in spaces parallel to our dimension), one can actually look at and see that possible future. Even once a decision has been made, I still believe that one can look at what could have happened. This would not exist as a fully independent timeline, but simply as a fragment realm displaying what may be or what could have been.”
Consistently, there exist potential realities surrounding us every waking minute that we either step into or not. From a biblical basis, there only exist two: positive (God’s) and negative (our own), as evident in Proverbs 14:12:
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
In the above diagram, the straight line labeled “God’s will/path for man” represents a person following God’s purpose in their life. Sinful choices cause us to travel a road unfortunately frequented.
In the same chapter of “Touching on Parallel Dimensions,” Daniel Duval writes about the operation of potential realities:
“I actually believe that there are different kinds of parallel dimensions. What I can say is that at least one type of parallel dimension seems to be clearly explained by the Bible. These are parallel dimensions that contain potential realities that simultaneously exist yet do not necessarily manifest. I am under the impression that potential (or possible) realities exit parallel to our timeline.
These potential realities are what occult prophets and seers like Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce looked at. Likewise, they are what Satan and his army of evil spirits look at. These are our parallel dimensions. If we were able to cross four-dimensional space, I believe we might encounter these potential realities and even have the ability to interact with them.”
“We could almost think about them like dream worlds. They may look and feel real, but unless they manifest into the base timeline, they would simply remain possible realities. This would make them pictures and illustrations of what could be or what may have been. They would be expression fo the results of choices either not taken or not yet taken.”
Mr. Duval’s insight on stepping into different realities is a critical notation on how “what if’s?” work. Unless we possess a time rewind ability, as seen in The Prince of Persia games, we cannot undo what we actualized.
Dan Duval closes this argument for a parallel dimension and reality of choice by identifying an idea of a copy version of us:
“If I were able to cross four dimensional space and find a copy of myself, that copy would be a picture or illustration of me in light of certain decisions made. It would not actually be me; it would not posses a spirit, and it would basically exist as a ‘movie’ or ‘recording’ of me under those specific circumstances.
In order to accept this concept it requires a couple of basic paradigms to be in operation. It requires us to believe that not only do people have the ability to exercise genuine choice, but that God has created provision for choices to be made (which would have to exist as potential realities). By proving that genuine choice has the ability to be made by humans, I believe that it validates the possibility for this perspective to be true.”
Daniel Duval’s explanation could align with a view created by David Kellog called “Modal Realism” and the term “possible worlds.”
As a follower of Jesus Christ, He gives our life direction, creating a reality not necessarily in our control. However, when we decide to take control, we ultimately step into a different reality. Our free will autonomy comes into the picture.
Some philosophers, such as David Lewis, believe that all possible worlds exist and are just as real as the world we live in. This is “Modal Realism,” meaning that the possible worlds are a way of explaining probability and hypothetical statements. David Lewis is the author of the 1986 book The Plurality of Worlds.
And God has provided a clear distinction between two realities we can step into, as evident in Deuteronomy 30:19:
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” (KJV)
While chapter 30 summarizes God’s divine stance on choice, chapter 28 outlines the consequences and rewards of selecting which life we should live.
As a reader, listener, or viewer, you may be telling yourself, “Well that was in the Old Testament. God was talking to Israel. That does not apply to us today.”
And you would be wrong. Though not as lengthy as Deuteronomy, Romans 6:23 perfectly captures the spirit of what its Old Testament counterpart expressed in a short line for our present, New Testament reality:
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord“(KJV).
Unlike the comics and science fiction, biblically understanding a multiverse comes back to two choices: life provided by Jesus Christ or guaranteed death through man’s provisions.
Biblically, same-sex intercourse has appropriate, spiritual consequences attached to it. We welcome chaos into our lives due to that sinful behavior. Yet, through human efforts, immoral behavior becomes more and more accessible and permissible in the minds of society.
The first chapter in Romans chronicles man’s decline resulting from consistent, unnatural actions:
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”
Romans 1:21–28 KJV
When I choose to eat something that is not conducive to the body, I begin to exist in a world against me full of disease, inflammation, and sickness. In contrast, the parallel would have been true had something healthier been selected.
You’ll live in a divine timeline whenever your choices are Spirit-led, which keeps you in the purposed realm Jesus Christ has defined.
Past, Present, and Future Incursions — Familiar Invasions
An incursion is defined twofold as simply entering into a new territory or AGGRESSIVELY entering into new territory. When discussing multiverse traversal, it is more seen as leaving one reality with the sole intent to enter into another.
The idea of incursions has been more established in the Marvel Universe, most notably in the Illuminati storylines in the comics when Black Panther assembles the Illuminati again after seeing a red planet crash into Earth 616.
In the Marvel fandom, the first incursion occurred seven years after Earth 616’s Molecule Man exterminated the Molecule Man from another timeline. Readers can find more information on the Marvel fandom website.
Screenrant says that an incursion is defined in the MCU as an event where two universes crash into one another.
However, when discussing Biblical incursions, this will be defined as when man attempts to enter the supernatural realm (heaven, etc.) or when the spiritual realm enters the natural realm (our reality).
The Bible is abundant in incursion events that have happened, are happening, and are to come. These events range from God revealing himself as a flaming bush to Moses to the “locusts” released on the Earth in the Book of Revelation. With this definition, we can identify “incursion points” in the Bible that do not involve the collisions of universes but adopt their own identity.
Here is a list of more Biblical incursion points:
- That the sons of God (fallen angels) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. (Gen 6:2 Rebellious angels entering our realm to corrupt the creation of God)
- And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole Earth. (Gen 11:4 — Mankind entering the supernatural realm)
- Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. (Gen 11:7 — The spiritual realm entering the natural realm)
- Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5 For a man to see and enter the spiritual realm, kingdom of heaven, he must be spiritually transfigured through this process)
- And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. (2 Kings 6:17–18 The Lord entering the natural realm acting on behalf of Elisha)
- Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. (Heb 13:2 Angels entering our realm by hearkening unto the word of the Lord)
The first bullet point is the most popular in internet culture as this event gave birth to what is known as Nephilim giants, who have become relative to the discussion of hybrids, transhumanism, and what’s to exist on the Earth in the future.
There is one biblical event that parallels Marvel’s incursion definition that ALL humanity will experience dead or alive; and that is when heaven departs like a rolled scroll when the sixth seal, Terror, is opened:
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
Revelation 6:12–17 (KJV)
Our Multiverse Today is All About Choice
Understanding these things will help you as a believer (or even non-believer) grasp the objective reality of how the spiritual realm operates today.
A popular belief is that Lucifer is still wandering around to and fro in the Earth as he did in Job, when that is far from the case.
There are supernatural forces in existence usurping the will of men in search of greed, recognition, and anything carnal this Earth has to offer to set their affections on the things of Earth rather than the things of heaven.
In our fleshly birth, we originate in sin, as David lamented in the book of Psalms. To suggest Lucifer is still out here walking around to every individual would imply a level of omnipotence or that he has Flash-like Dragon Ball Z-esque speed able to de-materialize between physical entities.
Popular media would have one believe that when we experience an unfair death, our spirit will linger on the Earth, haunting different people until our cosmic justice and vengeance have been fulfilled for proper rest. But the Bible tells us otherwise.
Today, the Lord gives us scriptures that tell us the rewards and benefits of a life in Christ if we choose to acknowledge our free will and give that back to the Lord. Take heed to James 1:12:
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
Here are other scriptures to help you stay in alignment with the Lord’s will are as follows:
- The Lord orders the steps of a righteous man. (Psalm 37:23)
- For as many are led by the spirit of God, so shall be called the sons of God (Romans 8:14)
- On this day I give you blessings and curses, life and death, therefore choose life (Deuteronomy 11:26)
When penning this piece, I share the same sentiment in Dan Duval’s goal when talking about these things which to many may not know how or why this should be relevant to your life:
“My goal isn’t to give you steps to a new and better you. The goal is to awaken you to a new way of viewing and processing everything around you. I want you to begin to view your life, this world, and God–not with the paradigm you’ve had–but with one that is closer to tha twitch is held by your Creator.”
What reality will you choose for your life?
