In Him All Things Hold Together: The TELEIOS MEROS Multiverse

multiverse

The multiverse is a hypothetical group of multiple universes. Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The different universes within the multiverse are called “parallel universes,” “other universes,” “alternate universes,” or “many worlds.”-Wikipedia

The infinite mind of God generates two “alternate universes” and the inhabitants therein. The “complete” teleios is the “heavenly realm” of angels and spirits, the “partial” meros is the “earthly realm” of men:

but when the complete (5046 τέλειος teleios) comes, the partial (3313 μέρος meros) will come to an end. (1 Cor. 13:10 NRS)

All things in this multiverse “consist” or “hold together” by the “thought” of God’s Infinite Mind.

And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.-(Col. 1:17 NAS)

[God]… is not far from each one of us; “for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, `For we are also His offspring.’ (Acts 17:26-28 NKJ)

Unlike the science fiction movie “The Matrix”, the multiverse is a real as it can be. Everyone in it has free will. God permits they do what they will do, but He will judge all things. Therefore, unlike “the Matrix” where Neo could change the physical rules governing reality, we cannot. In Quantum physics “Schrodinger’s Cat” says the “observer” determines reality, but YHWH God is the Almighty Observer who has opened the box. If this were not so, why is the moon sun and stars not different for every observer.

As the multiverse exists in the infinite Mind of God like a thought, God can rethink that thought anytime He pleases. The very structure of our universe can be loosed, and everything remade in an instant:

Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved (3089 λύω luo), and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (2 Pet. 3:12 KJV)

3089 λύω luo
Meaning: … 3f) to loose what is compacted or built together, to break up, demolish, destroy 3g) to dissolve something coherent into parts, to destroy 3h) metaph., to overthrow, to do away with.-Strong’s

THEREFORE, when scripture says the sky above our heads will be rolled up like a scroll, its likely a literal statement:

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Rev. 6:14-17 KJV)

Travel from the TELEIOS to the MEROS is via a door or opening:

12 Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it…

17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”(Gen. 28:12, 17 NKJ)

11 Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. (2 Ki. 2:11 NKJ)

When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. (Matt. 3:16 NKJ)

And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.” (Jn. 1:51-2:1 NKJ)

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” (Rev. 4:1 NKJ)

11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. (Rev. 19:11 NKJ)

Although the angel of the LORD was cloaked with invisibility when He stepped into our realm to sit under a tree, nothing suggests a change in corporeality:

11 Now the Angel of the LORD came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites.
12 And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!” (Jdg. 6:11-12 NKJ)

Angels war among themselves (Jdg. 5:20; Dan. 10:13, 20; Rev. 12:7), use weapons to kill (2 Chron. 32:21), (Num. 22:23) and fly in ships (Ezek. 1:4) and travel in craft rolling on powered wheels (Ezek. 1:15-21). Spirits don’t do these things, physical beings do.

Our LORD sits in heaven in resurrected humanity (Heb. 8:1), how then can any Christian doubt one can be physical in heaven? Christ “stood in their midst” (John 20:19-20, 26-27) without passing through doors or walls like a spirit. To prove corporeality Christ commands they touch His body, declares He has flesh and bones and then even eats a fish (Luke 24:36-43). Can any Bible believer doubt its possible to be physical in heaven? No.

Nothing about New Jerusalem coming down from heaven suggests it is not an actual physical city. No doubt Angels built it (Rev. 21:10-27). If it were impossible Paul be in heaven physically, he would have known he was “out of his body” while in third heaven (1 Cor. 12:2, 4).

Jesus said angels in heaven don’t marry (Mat. 22:30), He did not say disobedient angels on earth can’t marry.

The hapax legomen λειτουργικὰ πνεύματα “ministering spirits” in Hebrews 1:14 does not contradict angels are physical. In context angelic nature is not being discussed, rather their subordination to the Son is the topic.

The figurative language employed to say angels are “fast as the wind, terrible as a consuming fire” against all who oppose God (Heb. 1:7) is being used in synecdoche, Hebrews 1:14 is referring the whole concept of them as “fast as the wind, terrible as a consuming fire” also when ministering to the heirs of salvation. It is elementary, if angels were immaterial spirits, then God would not need to “make them spirits” (Ps. 104:4. Heb. 1:7).

Paul referred to himself as a “Pharisee the son of a Pharisee” and declares he believes the same eschatology (Acts. 23:6-7). In that context a distinction is made between “a spirit or angel”, they are not the same thing.

6 But when Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, “Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee; concerning the hope and resurrection of the dead I am being judged!”
7 And when he had said this, a dissension arose between the Pharisees and the Sadducees; and the assembly was divided.
8 For Sadducees say that there is no resurrection– and no angel or spirit; but the Pharisees confess both.
9 Then there arose a loud outcry. And the scribes of the Pharisees’ party arose and protested, saying, “We find no evil in this man; but if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him, let us not fight against God.” (Acts 23:6-9 NKJ)
