Why did David play and sing praises to God on an instrument of ten strings [Psalm 33:2; 92:3; 144:9]? Why ten strings? Why not four, five, or six? Why did the Bible specifically say ten strings three times in the Psalms? The Spirit could have said, an instrument of strings, and no one would have been any less blessed - until now! Do you recall that I said particle physicists are interested in symmetries and resonances? Since strings vibrate, was David's harp resonating with God's bosom causing him to say things he understood not? Many of the Psalms are beautiful poetry expressing thoughts that resonate with the high and holy God. "LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me" [Psalms 131:1]. David never thought of himself as some great person, nor did he act that way. Yet, David sang profound utterances for which he could not have known the meanings, such as the many Messianic Psalms wherein he accurately foretold things about the Messiah's first advent to a fraction.

Since God is outside of time, how does one contact Him? Perhaps it is through the resonance of vibrating strings with which He created the universe. The book of Revelation tells us that the multitudes standing before the throne of God all have harps and sing praises to God on them [5:8; 14:2; 15:2]. Do you suppose they will be instruments with ten strings? I personally think so. Words are spiritual, and when they go forth, we are told the energies they emit through their electromagnetic sound waves are not retrievable and linger continually throughout the universe. If they are spiritual, they are eternal. That is why Jesus said "…that every idle (or useless) word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the judgment" [Matthew 12:36]. We know that words are spiritual because Jesus said, "…the words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life" [John 6:63]. We also know that God inhabits the praises of His people, therefore, our praises must resonate all the way into heaven and move God. Remember too that Jesus said, "I can of mine own self do nothing, as I hear I judge…" [John 5:30]. What we have said will reverberate at the judgment and be the basis of our condemnation or pardon.

God has informed us how to reach Him:

  Isaiah 57:15
  15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Humbleness and contriteness resonates with God. He revives or makes alive the dead spirits of people who come to Him in humility and contriteness. This is the way to get born again and connect to Jesus and heaven, for He hearkens to the cries of the meek and humble. Jesus said, "…learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart (humble) and you shall find rest for your souls" [Matthew 11:29]. Genuine humbleness purges pride.

Notice that the foregoing Scripture in Isaiah 57 tells us God's habitation is eternity, outside of time, and that he lives with people whose pride has been broken. To repeat, loftiness, haughtiness, and pride will never resonate with God. The word 'lofty' connotes a prideful attitude. God alone is the lofty One deserving of total respect, honor, and majestic praise. If we want in His presence, we will have to get on the same wave link with Him and agree with everything He says in Scripture, humble ourselves, and make Him truly Lord in our lives. This is the way we resonate and harmonize with a holy God. Disregarding any portion of the Word is unbelief and equals disobedience. Moreover, believing that the Bible is in error in places will not resonate with God. It puts the human soul in danger of not being able to hyperlink with its creator.

 

What Resonates With God?

Lest one think all of this is falderal or exaggeration, let me mention another wonderful and exciting coincidence relating to the string theory of the universe. Scientists say that superstrings can vibrate self-consistently only in 10 and 26 dimensions. Why these two numbers? I submit it is because they are beautiful numbers in Biblical mathematics. Mathematics, being a pure science, cannot be abused even by intellectual geniuses, not even satan. Geometries and mathematical systems can be devised, constructed, and varied, but 2 plus 2 will always be 4 in our universe because God programmed it that way.It might be called something else in a difference base, but the conceptual schema is invariant. String Theory-Different levels of magnification of matter, ending with the string level. Legend: 1.Matter 2.Molecular structure (atoms) 3.Atom (protons, neutrons, electrons) 4.Electron 5.Quarks 6.Strings
 

God used 10 as His perfect number to connote order. As a sampling, there are 10 commandments, 10 fingers and 10 toes, 10 plagues at the Exodus, 10 patriarchs before the flood, 10 virgins, 10 servants with 10 talents receiving 10 cities to rule over, and 10 is the basis of the decimal system. If the number 10 testifies to law and order, why not create and order the universe in ten dimensions? God did!

Does the Bible speak to a resonance in 26 dimensions? Using Biblical numerics, we find that 10 + 13 = 23 and 23 + 3 = 26. What are the meanings of these numbers in Scripture? We have already seen that ten represents law and order, but what does thirteen connote? Most people agree that it is a number of ill omen. Perhaps it stems from the misfortunes of the Egyptians during the Passover night preceding the historical exodus of the Jews. It had to be a gruesome thing to find no dwelling, be it man or animal, without at least one victim of death in it. The Jewish day begins at sundown making the Passover night of the 14th when the Passover meal was eaten coincide with the 13th of the Egyptian calendar, their days beginning at midnight. To ring true to Scripture, the plague had to have started in the first or second watch before midnight on the 13th of the Egyptian calendar because Jesus' crucifixion occurred in the afternoon of the 13th on the Jewish calendar, the Day of Preparation when the Passover lamb was killed exactly at three o'clock in time for its blood to be put upon the doors. God said in verse 13, "…when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you…" [Exodus 12:13]. Spilled blood typically connotes something evil.

The death angel was instructed to pass over any dwelling where he saw the blood on the upper door post and two side posts of the entrance [Exodus 12:7]. This is important. God does not look at anything but the blood - not a person's countenance, not his status in life, not his pocketbook, not his human abilities, not his character, nor his good works. All God wants to know is whether the blood has been applied to a person's dwelling. Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? If you have not entered into a blood covenant arrangement with Jesus, you are at risk of dying 'hooked up' to hell. To repeat, God said, "when I see the blood, I'll pass over you, and …not destroy you." Only the blood avails anything with God. As is always the case, salvation depends upon obedience, faith that God means what He says. As in the exodus, the same holds true today, salvation depends upon our obedient application of the blood of Jesus.

Is it a fluke that directions to avoid the plague are specified in verse 13? Even though the chapters and verses of the Bible are not inspired, I have found an inordinate amount of coincidences between their numbers and God's Biblical numerics. Although not inspired, I personally believe that God directed their divisions in the same way He directed the organization of the King James Bible.

It is generally accepted that the first occurrence of a word in Scripture usually establishes its primary significance in Bible doctrine. Both 'thirteen' and 'rebelled' occur for the first time in Scripture together in the same verse in Genesis 14:4: "…in the thirteenth year they rebelled." We can readily see that the number 13 stands for rebellion and sin. Indeed, Samson was the 13th judge and boy, was he rebellious! The account of his rebellion is written in the 13th chapter of the book of Judges! Abraham circumcised his son Ishmael at the age of 13 [Genesis 17:25], but Ishmael has never accepted God's choice of Isaac as the one through whom salvation would come. Further, all the names of satan are divisible by 13. We could go on and on but we won't.

Adding 13 to 10 we get 23. This number twenty-three is the number for death because trespassing the law (10) with rebellion (13) produces death (23). "For I was alive without the law (10) once: but when the commandment came, sin (13) revived, and I died (23)" [Romans 7:9]. "The sting of death (23) is sin and the strength of sin (13) is the law (10)" [I Corinthians 15:56]. 13

Foregoing a detailed explanation of the number three, which stands in Scripture for divine perfection, let me briefly note that it also stands for resurrection because the simple gospel of Christ has three parts - death, burial, and resurrection [I Corinthians 15:3,4]. Adding 23 (death) to 3 (resurrection) we have 26 - the gospel of Jesus Christ. God intends for His message of salvation to permeate His entire universe, thus even the subatomic particles of matter only resonate in 10 (perfect order) and 26 (gospel) dimensions to praise His holy name. God has encrypted His message of salvation everywhere. Do not the Scriptures say that even the stones could become children to praise Him [Matthew 3:9]?

Witness the gospel of salvation written in the names of the 10 antediluvian patriarchs. Man (Adam) is appointed (Seth) to mortal (Enosh) sorrow (Kenan); the blessed God (Mahalalel) comes down (Jared) teaching (Enoch) his death shall bring (Methuselah) the despairing (Lamech) rest (Noah). Not only is the gospel embedded on every page of His written Word, in every bolt and nail with which the tabernacle was made, but He also wrote it in the stars - the Zodiacal signs of heaven called the Mazzaroth [Job 38:32]. The heavenly hosts have been misused and abused by occultists and prostitute religions, so God has had to abandon use of this method of preaching the gospel. It is unfortunate that the idolatrous Babylonian system perverted the heavenly signs by worshipping them instead of their creator. So we see that from the microcosm of 10 and 26 dimensional self-consistent resonating strings to the macrocosm of the Mazzaroth, 14 everything is designed to praise the name of the Lord who created them.

 
We have noted that there appears to be three subsets of three dimensions within our ten dimensional world, time being transcendent to them all. Now let's consider the mathematical discovery within the superstring equation that the physical knowable set of three spacial dimensions shares a dimension with each of the two unknowable subsets. This is fascinating! The possibility of two worlds sharing one common dimension means that they share the same space since they are attached, but neither can know about the existence of the other.

Connecting dimensions at right angles is how one moves into another hyperspace or world with more dimensions than ours. If our space did not have height, it would be a plane of two dimensions. If a plane did not have width, it would be a line of one dimension. If a line did not have length, it would be a point. Connecting dimensions at right angles is how one moves into hyperspaces of added dimensions. Anyone existing in a lesser dimensional world cannot know about the existence of a world having a greater number of dimensions. Connecting another line at a right angle to a three-dimensional hyperspace creates a hyperspace of four or more dimensions and is outside of our human ability to experience or know about. Yet, a person in a higher dimensional world knows everything about the lower dimensional worlds. Can you see that this is how Jesus can actually indwell and be intimate with millions at the same time? He is not bounded as we are to one location at a time. He can freely move from His spacetime world into ours at any point and knows about all other points simultaneously because He sees our entire spacetime frame at once. Because He exists in eternity, He is outside of time and sees the beginning from the end exactly like a person in a helicopter can see the start and finish of a parade at once.

  Isaiah 46:9-10
  9 …I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Heaven could exist in any number of dimensions so we will have to wait and see exactly how many there are.

 

Worlds Apart

Think about this. There is a real possibility that heaven and hell are actually connected to the physical world via the two subsets deduced from particle physics, all three worlds occupying the same space at once but unknown to each other. This is not a pipe dream. It is a provocative conjecture based upon factual evidence derived from scientific experimentation. It can be inferred that our physical world is connected to the heavenly spiritual world, known as the third heaven in Scripture according to Apostle Paul [2 Corinthians 12:2], by sharing a dimension with one unknowable subset and is connected to hell sharing a dimension with the other unknowable subset. Our universe, then, would be intermediate between the two other places.

Worlds Apart
 

Because the two unknowable subsets curl in opposite directions, they are not connected to each other. Our physical universe stands between them. Being disconnected, it is not possible to move between heaven and hell because there is no connection. When speaking to His disciples, Jesus inferred a disconnect when telling the story of Lazarus and the rich man. Jesus was warning people not to let riches hinder their connection to heaven. He never said the rich man was evil, only that he fared sumptuously every day. The central part of the parable was not about riches per se, but to forewarn people that once a person crosses over to the other side, it is not possible to traverse from heaven to hell nor from hell to heaven.

  Luke 16:26
  26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence (heaven) to you cannot; neither can they pass to us (from hell), that would come from thence.

One cannot go from one place to the other because there is no connection! The Bible says that heaven and earth will vanish away at the end of the Millennium at the time of the great white throne judgment, "…and there was found no place for them" [Revelation 20:11]. Peter elaborates on this event by saying the elements will melt with fervent heat and will be dissolved [2 Peter 3:10-14]. If hell is connected to the physical world as seems likely, it too will vanish. But, since God's abode is the third heaven, and since the great white throne judgment is before Him, the spiritual third heaven's hyperspace must still exist while hell and the physical universe with its two heavens disappear. This white throne judgment judges resurrected unsaved people. All the dead stood before the throne waiting to hear their sentence: "…whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" [Revelation 20:15]. Evidently, when the physical universe dissolves for the purpose of creating a new one [2 Peter 10:14], the two unknowable worlds will disconnect from our physical universe. The third heaven remains since it is the abode of God, but "…death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death" [Revelation 20:14]. The Bible teaches that the spiritual world of heaven is the reality upon which the shadowy world we live in is based. It is all that remains after the first creation is done away with. Reality manifests and shadows disappear. It is my opinion that the new heaven and earth will be created without any attachment to a wicked place.

Our spirits and souls are attached to a spiritual hyperspace, but since they are tied to our physical body, it cannot freely move into it. People on occasion talk about out of body experiences, which God has forbidden. However, if the body was disconnected, as at death, the soul could traverse into another hyperspace through a shared dimension. The mathematical equation of Swartz and Green indicates that the two unobservable subsets of the superstring theory share one dimension with the knowable physical spacetime universe. Listen to scientist Robert Faid as he describes it.

 
  "Two separate and distinct "worlds" can exist in the same space because their dimensions are at right angles to each other. But in geometric arrangement it is possible that these worlds could share one common dimension. The other world would be completely unseen and undetectable by the other, for the shared dimension would be a line, and we have just determined that a line which exists by itself is invisible and would not be detectable." [Italics his] 15

How provocative! One subset of three dimensions curls in one direction suggesting a right angle connection to one location, heaven, while the other subset of three dimensions curls in the other direction suggesting an opposite left angle connection to hell! If the string theory turns out to be true, then we are connected to eternity at every moment of time in one way or the other. We are not waiting to get connected, we are connected. It is uncanny the way modern science is proving the Bible as God's template for creation. But, why only ten dimensions? To quote Robert Faid again, "God did not need any more!"

 
Is the Lake of Fire a Black Hole?
 

B

After the great white throne judgment in which the lost are resurrected and condemned for rejecting God's free offer of salvation through His Son's substitutionary payment for their sins, there is a real possibility that Christ rejecters will be violently thrown into an actual black hole.

  Revelation 20:14-15
  14 And death and hell were cast (thrown violently) [Gr.-ballo = Strong: 906] into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast (thrown violently) into the lake of fire.

A black hole is surmised to be a collapsed dead star or galaxy and by extrapolation could be the final state of our universe when God creates a new one. Theoretical scientists construe that it consists of a soup of trapped physical matter burning in a literal lake of (black) fire. Could this be what is meant by the "lake of fire" in Revelation 20:15? Theory has it that nothing, not even light, can escape the gravitational hold of whatever falls into a black hole. 16 Considering this, could the resurrection of unsaved people mean they would end up in a mixture of trapped smoldering matter possessing immortal physical bodies that can feel the pain of burning? This is a sobering thought. Is this what is referred to in the Scriptures when it says that the "smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and forever" [Revelation 14:11]?

 

  Revelation 14:9-11
  9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be
tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
...smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever
 

Not having been born again means a person is not connected to the 'right' angle with the 'right' person. Although black holes have been conjured by theoretical physicists in order to resolve some of the puzzles of our universe, there is now actual observational data indicating that one has been spotted in the constellation Virgo. This pushes the envelope to greater precision in authenticating the Bible's account of hell. Jesus was not being glib when He warned that there would be some people who would be "…cast into outer darkness (where) there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" [Matthew 8:12; 22:13; 25:30]. This last phrase means to grate the teeth in pain.
