The Ultimate Reality

“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
Hebrews 11:3 (NIV)

A recent documentary shown on British television was called “What Is Reality?” The world’s leading scientists are on a mission to understand the nature of reality. They want to know what is reality? To help in their quest for reality, physicists are using two of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful machines called Particle Accelerators—the Tevatron Particle Accelerator at Fermilab, the high energy physics laboratory in Chicago, U.S.A., and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland.  Billions of dollars and euros have been invested in the search for reality. Thousands of scientists are involved.

A leading professor said that “mathematics is the only way to describe reality.” Some scientists believe that reality is beyond our universe, they ask the question “do we exist in an infinity of parallel worlds?” Another theory is the holographic principle, that the ultimate nature of reality might be holographic, that the world is a hologram!

Scientists are asking the wrong question! The question should not be “what is reality?” but “who is Reality?”

Jesus was sent as the perfect revelation of the Father. He came to reveal God, the only true Reality. He said “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). “For in him we live and move and have our being.” says Acts 17:28, and in Colossians 1:16-17 we read, “…all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

Jesus is the ultimate Reality. Apart from him, nothing can or will exist,and he sustains the universe by his powerful word, as it says in Hebrews 1:3.

Prayer
Dear Lord and Father of mankind, the knowledge of who you are is hidden from the wise and learned. We thank you that it is not hidden from those who have faith in you.
Amen
