Daily Tidbits 3/11 – Physics

“The word ‘physics’ actually comes from the Greek physika, meaning nature, or more precisely, natural things.  As we use it, physics refers to that sublime branch of science dealing with nature at its most fundamental level.  Thus, the behavior of atoms, gravity,  electromagnetism all fall with the domain of physics.”  {Instant Physics pg VIII}

“Physics (Greek: physis – φύσις meaning “nature”) is a natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space-time, as well as all applicable concepts, such as energy  and force.  More broadly, it is the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the world and universe  behave.”  Wikipedia.org

In short, Physics has become the study of the invisible/spiritual realm.  The Spirit/breathe of His Creation.

Physics, simply defined, is the study of nature.  Nature points to Messiah.

Thayer Definition:
1) nature
1a) the nature of things, the force, laws, order of nature

The PIE (Proto Indo European) base of physics is ‘bheu’  ‘to be exist, grow.’  This corresponds to the Hebrew word היה ‘hayah.’

היה ‘hayah’ is the source of the English phrase ‘I AM’ applied to the LORD God.

Exo 3:14  And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and He said, You shall say this to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.
Exo 3:15  And God said to Moses again, You shall say this to the sons of Israel, Jehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial from generation to generation.

Christ makes it clear that He is the ‘I AM’ of Exodus 3

Joh 8:24  Therefore, I said to you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.

Joh 8:28  Then Jesus said to them, When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM; and from Myself I do nothing; but as My Father taught Me, these things I speak.

Joh 8:56  Your father Abraham leaped for joy that he should see My day, and he saw, and rejoiced.
Joh 8:57  Then the Jews said to Him, You do not yet have fifty years, and have You seen Abraham?
Joh 8:58  Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came to be, I AM!

Joh 13:18  I do not speak concerning all of you; I know whom I chose out; but that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “The one eating the bread with Me lifted up his heel against Me.” Psa. 41:9
Joh 13:19  From this time I tell you before it happens, that when it happens you may believe that I AM.

Joh 18:7  Then again He asked, Whom do you seek? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene.
Joh 18:8  Jesus answered, I told you that I AM; then if you seek Me, allow these to depart,
Joh 18:9  (that the Word might be fulfilled which He said, “Of those whom You gave to Me, I lost not one of them).”
Mar 14:61  But He was silent and answered nothing. Again the high priest questioned Him, and said to Him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
Mar 14:62  And Jesus said, I AM! And you will see the Son of Man sitting off the right hand of power, and coming with the clouds of the heaven.
Psa. 110:1; Dan. 7:13

The phrase ἐγώ εἰμι ‘ego eimi’ in Greek & אהיה אשׁר אהיה ‘ehyeh asher ehyeh’ in Hebrew = אנא אנא ‘ene na’ in Aramaic.

“אנא אנא (ene na) here stands by itself: Our Lord said that thow who do not believe ‘Ena Na’ shal die in their sins.  This is not a reference to faith in the existence of Jesus (‘I exist’), which the Pharisees were quite well aware of, but rather a reference to faith in the Deity of Jesus (‘I AM the Living God’)…Thirty two times it (Peshitta) refers to Yeshua Meshikha as Maryah (The Lord Jehovah) and 25 times as ‘Ena na’ (‘I AM the Living God’).”  {Aramaic English Interlinear New Testament – David Bauscher pg 255 commentary on John 8:24}

“It is the search for logos and kosmos that became the guiding doctrine of physics.”

λόγος ‘logos’ = דבר ‘davar’ (The Word = Messiah)

κόσμος ‘kosmos’ = Order (which traces back to דבר ‘davar’ (word) and אור ‘ohr’ (light) in Hebrew)

κόσμος ‘kosmos’ is used to translate a number of Hebrew words, one of which is תפראת ‘tipheret’ which can be translated into English as ‘Glory’.  Messiah is the Glory of the LORD.

Joh 12:41  Isaiah said these things when he saw His glory, and spoke about Him.

Albert Barnes commentary Joh 12:41 –
When he saw his glory – Isa_6:1-10. Isaiah saw the Lord (in Hebrew, יהוה  Yahweh) sitting on a throne and surrounded with the seraphim. This is perhaps the only instance in the Bible in which Yahweh is said to have been seen by man, and for this the Jews affirm that Isaiah was put to death. God had said Exo_33:20, “No man shall see me and live;” and as Isaiah affirmed that he had seen Yahweh, the Jews, for that and other reasons, put him to death by sawing him asunder. See Introduction to Isaiah, Section 2.
By his glory is meant the manifestation of him – the Shechinah, or visible cloud that was a representation of God, and that rested over the mercy-seat. This was regarded as equivalent to seeing God, and John here expressly applies this to the Lord Jesus Christ

John affirms that it was the glory of the Messiah that Isaiah saw, and yet Isaiah affirms that it was Yahweh; and from this the inference is irresistible that John regarded Jesus as the Yahweh whom Isaiah saw.

Rev 1:15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Eze 43:2  And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. And His voice was like the voice of many waters. And the earth shone from His glory.
Eze 43:3  And the appearance of the vision which I saw was as the appearance which I saw when I came to destroy the city, and as the appearance that I saw by the river Chebar. And I fell on my face.
Eze 43:4  And the glory of Jehovah came into the house, the way of the gate facing eastward.
Eze 43:5  And the Spirit took me up and brought me into the inner court. And, behold, the glory of Jehovah filled the house!
Eze 43:6  And I heard one speaking to me from the house. And standing beside me was a Man.
Eze 43:7  And He said to me, Son of man, the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, there where I will dwell among the sons of Israel forever, even the house of Israel shall not defile My holy name any more, they nor their kings, by their fornication, nor by the corpses of their kings in their high places.

The Holy Spirit made Luke associate the Glory of God with the Salvation of God.

Luk 3:3  And he came into the neighborhood of the Jordan proclaiming a baptism of repentance for remission of sins,
Luk 3:4  as it has been written in the scroll of the Words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.
Luk 3:5  Every valley shall be filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked places shall be made into straight, and the rough into smooth ways;”
Luk 3:6  “and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” Isaiah 40:3-5
Isa 40:5  And the glory of Jehovah shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of Jehovah has spoken.

The word for glory תפראת ‘tipheret’ comes from the root פר ‘par,’ which pictographically means the ‘open the head’.  The heads of grains were scattered on the threshing floor, a smooth, hard and level surface. An ox is lead around the floor crushing the heads, opening them to reveal the seed inside.  This has become the nature of physics, to find the hidden seed of the grain ..ie the unseen realm.

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the essence of things being hoped, the evidence of things not having been seen.
Heb 11:2  For by this the elders obtained witness.
Heb 11:3  By faith we understand the ages to have been framed by the Word of God, so that the things seen should not come into being out of things that appear.
