I have looked casually into what is the study of quantum mechanics or physics. From what I could find it is where scientist study beyond the atom. That is, we know the atom makes up all matter and then there is the matter of anti-matter, but what makes up the atom. If you remember from some of your high school science days, the atom contains three notable parts: the nucleus (the thing in the middle everything revolves around), the protons, and electrons. The protons and electrons revolve around the nucleus much like a planet revolves around the sun. However, what holds the electrons and protons in orbit like the planets around the sun? It’s not gravity. It is an invisible force that scientists have yet to identify. The study of that force is what quantum mechanics is about (in a simplified definition).
The God Particle
You may have heard the term “God particle” before. It would take way too long to explain this, but in a nutshell, it is what gives matter mass. It includes photons, protons, etc. and was given the name due to the long drawn out process to find out how atoms (unseen) make up matter (the seen). Way too short of a description as to what it is. Okay, you say, so what is the God particle? Believe it or not, there are sub-atomic particles. These are particles that exist before the atom; further down beyond the atom. The God particle is sub-atomic, smaller than the atom.
Quantum mechanics studies the sub-atomic. It asks questions like what holds the atoms together? What is beyond the atom? What are the forces at play at this level? Generally speaking, it is metaphysical or do I dare say supernatural. All on our side of the atom is physical things. For the most part, we can see it (even if with a microscope), touch it, taste it, smell it. Everything beyond the atom is not physical because atoms are what make up the physical. So it is non-physical or metaphysical. It is not what we would call part of the natural world, but supernatural.
Here is the God Principle
What holds all that we know together has been a conjecture of man for ages. As is so common, the answer is right where it has always been. The problem comes where many say the answer is unacceptable or too simplistic. The answer is in the Bible. Specifically:
“And He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17 NSV
Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 says that God/ Jesus created all things. He spoke them into existence. Before the atoms knew what to do and before the creation of even atoms, there was God who is supernatural or spirit. What is the force holding the sub-atomic particles and atomic particles in place? It is Jesus. “And in Him, all things hold together.” He is the force holding it all together. He is the force that holds the electrons and protons in orbit around the nucleus. He is the one who, at the speaking of His word can also let it all go.
Since God is the Creator and Sustainer through Jesus, then He is also the One who knows how it all works and is supposed to work. One day this world as we know it will end. That is when Jesus will set all things right. Peter says of that day “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.” 2 Peter 3:10. On that day all the elements will be rearranged and put back in the correct order. One translation of the Bible says there will be a “fervent heat.” Nuclear fusion. The Book of Revelation says there will be a new order, new heaven, and a new earth. The same Jesus who holds all the atoms and matter together, who can and will rearrange those atoms, is also the same Jesus who can hold your life together. Even when it seems it is all out of control and you don’t understand it, you can know that the Creator God of the Universe also can hold you and rearrange your life. But He will not force that upon you. You have to ask. He is more than willing to start today.
