The biblical book of Genesis describes how God created all existence. When at God’s time He breathed life into matter and the results is the creation of man. We can assume that from this act by God that form and life are different, but life is dependent on matter in this world. Since God is a Spirit we know that God breathed His Spirit into the Design of man and man became a living being. All the forms of matter have always conditioned man and helped develop man’s mind as his brain storage increased in order for man to grow and survive his challenges.
God created the universe by the standard of His son, and the dynamics of the universe molds each person to be like His son. God’s works are to make people believe in whom He has sent. God is a spirit that created the material world. This is best expressED in the book of 1 JOHN 4:9; “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”
Humans endeavor to overcome shortcomings; firstly overcoming their material needs and afterward developing their intellect while spiritual needs arose. There is one characteristic of God that humans have always been exposed; God’s perfect righteousness from alpha to omega, the beginning and the end. In this sense, the end is with the Lord in heaven in the presence of God. This is the one unifying truth that holds for the material world of humans and the spiritual world of humans. Humans have always been exposed to God’s perfect righteousness giving the perfect order to all things as in the book of Isaiah 28:16. The modern laws of physics reflect this perfect ordering by God from the beginning of creation.
Isaiah 28:16; “Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion (In the essence of things) for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.”
The Apostle Paul, states later in the New Testament that we can see the nature of the spiritual world by the way that things are made in the material world.
Romans 1:20; ““For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
One can express the unity of the spirit and matter with a metaphysics equation, UspaceVspace=Q in which I label as the God Equation. The Uspace represents the perfect righteousness of God giving the perfect order to all things as verified by the laws of physics. The Vspace represents the nexus of all things; the dynamics of matter. All things are in constant flux; coming into being and going out of being (Greek philosopher Aristotle). The Q represents the laws or principles in the world leading into the spiritual laws. For God is perfect righteousness, and all that God does is perfect for all times. Therefore, Uspace times Vspace = Q is the identity of matter and spirit; the perfection of God in which humans has always been exposed.
Humans being exposed to God’s perfect righteousness and endeavoring to overcome shortcomings while remaining in a fallen state that is short of God’s perfect righteousness we continue to overcome things. Of course, we now have a Savior who is that perfect, righteous stone given by grace to redeem us to God. The Christ Mind existed at creation who is the Son of God. Jesus was born as the Son of Man in order to overcome the world for all of us and pay our sin debt for our redemption unto God.
Matter inherently contains the absolute laws of God; gravity displays absoluteness; it shall not be broken; jump off a bridge and it acts on anyone regardless of their statue in life. The nature of matter is always conditioning humans and supporting them at the same time. The spiritual laws of God are also absolute, but God has given us freewill and a grace period and doesn’t act on us immediately as does gravity. Although, the unifying metaphysical equation, Uspace time Vspace = Q holds true for matter and spirit in that the spiritual laws are also perfect. The human has learned from the material laws and has been rewarded by God. We have fallen short of obeying God’s spiritual laws and have need of Jesus, the Son of God, to be our perfection in the sight of God. Our God requires perfection for He is Perfect.
If all things were still then we would learn nothing. Since all things are changing we learn about God. The great Greek philosopher, Cicero, stated that all things are making a statement of a law, even a particle. He didn’t have the knowledge of modern physics as we do, but he probably didn’t know how right he was in a Christian sense. Cicero was supporting Christianity as reflected by my metaphysics God Equation of Uspace times Vspace = Q (a particle, all tangibles, spiritual laws). The Apostle Paul in the above scripture, Roman s 1:20, stated that from the way things are made (Q) we can observe the nature of God; as a result, humans have no excuse from learning of the Godhead.
This learning of God’s nature and His laws, physics and spiritual laws, has a problem. No human can obey all of the laws of God for God is perfect and demands perfection. Even if man looks at all of the mosaic pieces of the laws, man can not put them together into one whole perfect law (Q) as demanded by God. So, God sent a Savior; His one and only Son, Jesus Who is perfect in order to stand in the face of God with the Son’s perfection. The Son of God completes the God equation of Uspace times Vspace = Q; for Jesus is God’s perfect righteousness giving the perfect order to all things for this is reality. This began at Creation when matter and spirit was merged
The identity of spirit and matter is God’s perfect righteousness giving the perfect order to all things (Uspace). We observe Uspace times Vspace = Q, which represents the identity of spirit and matter. All things, spiritual (Q) and matter (Q), are showing us something about the one Truth of God. God created the universe in which His Son was and is the life of Uspace times Vspace = Q, a unity of spirit and matter. For the Son has overcome the world and in Him all shortcomings have been overcome with all things being made possible.
