Cogitation XIV: God And Time
The Book of Revelation has to be the scariest literature ever produced. What with all those strange creatures that Marvel and Star Wars movies borrow from! Even the image of God in Revelation is scary. There’s so much energy coursing through him – enormous amounts of energy: “Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was standing in heaven with someone seated on it! And the one seated on it was like jasper and carnelian in appearance, a rainbow looking like it was made of emerald encircled the throne.” Revelation 4:2-3 NET. Those colours are energy spectra, God is not a stone. It’s why John says he’s LIKE jasper and carnelian. Carnelian is reddish brown. Jasper is brownish. Those colours are wavelengths of energy. There are flashes of lightning and thunder from that throne. That’s because there’s so much energy electricity is being generated. It’s why we can’t move near God physically. Too much radiation. Now we can understand why Jesus is the intermediary. He stepped down the power and energy the way you step down voltage: “The Son is the radiance and only expression of the glory of our awesome God, reflecting God’s Shekinah glory, the Light-being, the brilliant light of the divine, the exact representation and perfect imprint of His Father’s essence…” Hebrews 1:3 AMP.
