Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
Welcome back! Here's a little recap of what we've discovered so far:
In Part I of this series, we were introduced to the scale of the universe, from the very large to the very small.
In Part II, we discovered what the limits are at the smallest scale of the universe, and essentially what makes up the stuff inside and all around us.
In Part III, we demonstrated how the world, everything inside of us and everything that surrounds us is made up of light (physical) and information (non-physical).
These days there is a lot of talk coming from highly respected scientists that they believe our world is a hologram, or computer simulation. Their reasons for believing this comes many scientific experiments that were performed, and the mathematical equations that were used to form their hypotheses. The most notable and credible sources we have to date come from;
- Sylvester James Gates jr. - Theoretical physicist (string theory)
- Elon Musk - Entrepreneur
- Nick Bostrom - Philosopher
- Ray Kurzweil - Inventor, Futurist
What these people, and many others like them have in common is that they understand there is more to our reality than meets the eye, albeit from a secular perspective. They understand that our physical nature is more than just flesh and bones, but is chiefly made of light, and can be altered genetically or by directly interfacing with machine technology. Within the next 20 or so years, a new breed of humans will walk the face of the earth!
Today we can see the early stages of this new humanity. Consider how times have changed since the turn of the 1900s. Since the time that Christ last walked the earth among us, humanity was generally "quiet" for about 2,000 years. Then at the turn of the 1900s our way of life drastically changed, as can be seen in the chart below.
But what does this all mean for you, the average person? Why should you care about what science has to say about what's out there and what will happen to humanity within the next 20 years? Why should you care about what the Bible says? Does it really make a difference in your life if any of this matters to you?
Well, let's take a look at how we live today compared to about 150 years ago, which serves as an appropriate example for the purpose of this article. On July 1st 1867, the country of Canada (my home and native land) was born!
This is relatively young, compared to countries of the "old world", which have been around for hundreds to thousands of years.
The way people "did things" hadn't really changed much from the time the first explorers came to the eastern shores of Canada in 1534, until its founding as a country in 1867.Canada in 1534

Prior to the turn of the 20th century, the rate of change of technology was very slow. Hundreds of years would pass before major advances were made and became commonplace amongst the population. When compared with how we live today, every 18 months we come up with a new breakthrough in some area of science or the other, and the pace is still accelerating!
Technology has improved, knowledge has increased BUT...how has any of this helped humanity to live peacefully with each other? Every day, we see stories in the news of growing wars and aggression against all classes of citizens on this planet!
Despite all the good that technology has brought us to improve the quality of our lives, moral values are in free fall. Despite the fact that there are enough material resources available for everyone on this planet to live comfortably with, we still struggle with poverty, excessive greed, incurable diseases, violent crimes, escalating global conflicts between nations, dysfunctional families, and many other societal ills that we once thought technology and the enlightened human spirit could cure and eliminate.
If technology can't save us, then who or what can?
Well, the Bible is very clear about the answer to this question. Problem is, the society we live in today rejects anything that has to do with being spiritually minded, or that a higher power is in charge of human affairs in this world.
You might be asking why is the Bible so special out of all the books that have ever existed? What does Judaism or Christianity have that's so special over Islam, Hinduism, Buddism, or any of the hundreds of "peaceful" religions or ways of life that people choose to live by?
One of the greatest scientific discoveries of our time was made by a mathematician named Ivan Panin.
In short, he discovered a hidden code written within the pages of the Bible that no person could have produced or duplicated on their own, or with the aid of a machine. No other piece of litereature ever written self-authenticates itself, including all works from religious texts world wide.
To make a long story short, the Bible is what it is, and what it says is the only truth there is that tells the story of where we came from, why we are here and what our destiny will be for all eternity..
This life is like a game, and the Bible explains how to play to win, and the consequences of when you play to lose. Some people don't like to play by the rules, but if we look at the structure of what makes everything in our universe, we clearly see that there is an order to how things work. Without this order, there would be chaos, and nothing would be able to exist as we know it!
Life is about balance. It is about learning to live in harmony with our environment. When we learn to be in harmony with ourselves, then everything else will fall into place! Therefore, it doesn't really make any difference if our world is a simulation or not! What matters are the choices that we make each day, and if they are in harmony with God's laws. People make it a point to pay their rent or their taxes on time. People also respect the law of the land and would think twice about lying to the police or a judge.
This means that no one has any excuse (once they reach the age of reason, which is about 12 years old in all cultures), to not know the difference between right and wrong. All people, all countries, everyone past, present and future is subject to God's laws, and they cannot be annulled or repealed! No exceptions!
The reason this is so important and vital to understand is that YOU ARE A CREATED BEING! You were not put here by accident, It does not matter what happened to you in the past, or where you happen to be in life today. Rich or poor, healthy or sick, young or old, famous or reclusive. Did you know that you are a god in training!! You were created for a purpose and there is a plan for your life here on this earth!
In Part V, which will be the last article of this series, we will tell you more about your life plan on this earth, and how to start living like the royalty that you are!
