WHAT IS THE ‘FOURTH DIMENSION?’
The Bible speaks openly about an ‘invisible’ world. Believers know it as the spiritual world. Occultists call it ‘the fourth dimension,’ or the ‘fourth world.’ Metaphysic scientists, (concerned with the so-called ‘scientific’ study of the supernatural, of the nature of being and beings, existence, time and space, etc.,) and quantum physicists, (such as Einstein, who studied the smallest quantity of a physical property such as electromagnetic radiation,) also believe that besides all the micro marvels of our known world, there exists another invisible world — even layers of invisible worlds.
Scientists also describe this unknown world as the ‘fourth dimension.’ Sounds complicated, but isn’t really. All they are saying is that a 2-D (or two-dimensional) world would be like a child’s drawing on paper. Such a ‘flat’ drawing is without visual depth or ‘dimension’ and looks unrealistic. A ‘flat,’ two dimensional drawing, or ‘world’ is measured in length and width only; it has no depth. Our natural world is a 3-D (or three-dimensional) galaxy, which includes the sun, moon, stars, and even other unseen and unexplored galaxies. Our physical world occupies a literal 3-D space, which consists of length, width, and depth. Thus, a 3-D drawing or image (such as 3-D TV,) ‘pops out’ of he picture and looks quite realistic because it mimics our world. A 4-D world, in contrast, would consist of length, width, depth – and another type of dimension, completely foreign to our world.
To describe a fourth world, we could say that it exists ‘outside or beyond’ our physical space in some kind of unknown, or ‘outer space.’ However, the fourth dimension does not exist in physical outer space, (i.e. on or among the sun, moon, and other planets in our galaxy.) Neither does the 4th dimension exist in other, far-off galaxies, as UFO seekers allege. (UFO’s are Unidentified Flying Objects - supposedly ‘space crafts’ from far off galaxies, operated by ‘more advanced civilizations.’ Actually, the entire “aliens from other galaxies” is an unproven, anti-God, antichrist, anti-Scriptural, anti-creational hoax! Most people, who use their common sense, know these strange, flying objects, which originated in Nazi Germany and proliferated in America after World War 11, are secret military experiments from NASA, which sensation-seekers have conjured up as ‘visitors from outer space,’ or ‘more intelligent life forms from far off galaxies.’)
To the best of our knowledge, we can only say that the 4-D world remains unseen, unfelt, and largely undiscovered because it is situated somewhere ‘outside’ ‘above,’ or ‘beyond’ our natural 3-D world. Thus, the existence of a 4-D world seems ‘superior to,’ ‘unreal’ and ‘supernatural’ in terms of our physical world. Knowing virtually nothing about the forth dimension, it is safe to assume that the inhabitants of the 4-D world possess capabilities unfamiliar to the inhabitants of this 3-D world. [The Alien myth of visitors from outer space in UFO’s excluded.] Therefore, the 4th dimension is known as “the spirit-world.”
In 1 Cor. 15:39-40, Paul told us all about the different kinds of ‘bodies’ or inhabitants of both the 3rd and 4th dimensions. He wrote, “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. Then there are also celestial bodies, (or supernatural spirits…) but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial, (or physical,) is another.” Supernatural manifestations from the fourth dimension are such an ‘everyday’ part of life in our world that not even ‘level-headed’ scientists can reason them away. Believers of the Bible, pagan and occult religionists, and even metaphysic scientists all know that entities or spirits, who live in that supernatural dimension, can watch us from their 4-D world. They can also enter into our 3-D world with or without us being aware of them. When these beings choose to show themselves in our 3-D world, (as and how God exposes them or allows them to manifest,) it seems to us as if they appear from, and disappear into ‘nowhere.’ Such supernatural manifestations create the impression that this ‘other’ world also exists parallel to, yet beyond our physical 3-D world.
This is what happened after Jesus’ resurrection, “When Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst of His disciples, and said, ‘Peace to you!’ [Then He said to the unbelieving Thomas,] ‘Look at My hands and My feet, and put your hand into My side. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have… Have you any food here? So they gave Him a piece of the fish and some honeycomb, and He ate in their presence,” (Lu. 24:39.)
Spirits do not have flesh and bones; neither do they eat physical food. However, Jesus was not resurrected as a supernatural spirit only. Jesus was resurrected in a physical-immortal, glorified body, which can live in both the physical and spiritual dimensions, (1 Cor. 15:40; 42-57.)
Just as the invisible world of microscopic creatures and atoms, the 4th dimension has been there all the time. It seems to function next to, above, under, and even in our physical world, but ordinarily, humans and animals are not aware of things that concern that unfamiliar place. As natural vegetation, animals, and humans cannot exist in that world in their present form, it seems, as a rule, animals and humans cannot see into the fourth dimension, but there are exceptions, as we will see. While humans are in their natural form, they can also definitely not enter physically into the supernatural world. Paul said, in order for physical flesh to enter into the spiritual world, a complete transformation of the physical body, similar to Jesus’ resurrected, glorified body, has to occur. He explained, “I tell you a mystery: [Sincere believers in Christ] shall not all sleep [in physical death,] but they shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, [which announces the return of Jesus,] the [deceased bodies of true believers] will be raised incorruptible. Then, [the physical bodies of the living believers in Christ] shall be changed [into glorified bodies, resembling the resurrected body of Jesus.] For flesh and blood, [or humanity in their present form] cannot inherit [or enter] the Kingdom of [Heaven]… This corruptible [flesh] must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption… then shall be brought to pass what is written, “[Physical] death is swallowed up in victory…” (1 Cor. 15:50-58.)
As physical beings do not and cannot live in the 4th dimension, physical death does not exist in the spiritual world. In order for sincere believers in Christ to ascend bodily from the grave into the spiritual realm of heaven, (as Jesus did,) their corruptible bodies will have to be transformed into tangible, yet incorruptible bodies. In the spirit world, life lasts forever. A spirit, a human spirit, and a glorified human body can never be destroyed. So, no one ever dies in the spiritual dimension, yet it is a real place. The Bible tells us that the throne of God is seated there, in the highest realm of the 4th dimension, in a place called “heaven.” Hell is also located in the spirit world, (according to the Bible, somewhere underneath the earth,) where no one ever dies, and no spirit body is ever consumed, while suffering for all eternity in a “lake of [unquenchable] fire,” (Rev. 20:15.) The holy angels of God move like winds and flames of fire through all the realms of the spirit and physical worlds, going wherever God commands them to go, (Heb. 1:7; 14.) According to Scripture, some evil spirits, (demons, or fallen angels) can and do move in and through ‘heavenly places’ – not God’s holy heaven, but through the different layers of earth’s atmosphere, (Eph. 6:12.)
The supernatural human spirits of the living can enter the spirit world
God created humanity as tri-part beings with human spirits, (which the Bible calls “the heart,”) souls, (minds or consciousness, which contains intellect, free will and emotions,) contained by physical bodies, (1 Ths. 5:23.) God is Spirit, and because man died spiritually at the fall, humanity must be spiritually born again through personal faith in, and acceptance of Jesus to “worship God, Who is Spirit, in spirit [with and in their human spirits,] and in truth,” (Jn. 4:21-24.)
Man without Jesus still possesses a human spirit, which is in ‘coma-death,’ but which can be empowered by Satan to enter the spirit world. It is well-known in the occult that the human spirits of the living can also temporarily enter into the spirit-world. Hence, Satanists and other pagan religionists also know the fourth dimension as the spirit world. Many Satanists can see into the spirit world, (although not into God’s holy, heavenly kingdom,) through the power of familiar or personal demons. These demons form a ‘bridge’ from their dilapidated human spirits, (and also from their corrupt human souls or minds,) into the spirit world.
Hallucinating drugs and alcoholism can have the same effect, acting as a ‘bridge’ to blow open the spirit world. Psychologists call such encounters “brain-induced, imaginary hallucinations,” as both scientists and addicts mostly deny the existence of God, angels and demons. To enter the spirit world through hallucinate drugs such as LSD is much less ‘controlled’ as the type of supernatural encounters, which occultists experience on a regular basis. It is no great feat for a witchdoctor, shaman, or medicine-man to ‘view remotely,’ etc., by entering the spirit world via their own human spirits. To get this type of demonic power is the very reason why occultists worship, and ritualistically attend to dark forces – which they hardly ever perceive as ‘dark,’ but nearly always describe as ‘light.’
Biblical encounters with angels and demons
Concerning the children of God and the spiritual gifts that He had entrusted to them; it is definitely not normal that believers should see into the spirit world continually, or that they either encounter demons, or remain in touch with holy angels constantly. Neither is it possible that Christians can control “their personal angels” in any way. Holy angels are subject to God Alone. Contrary to sensation-seeking occult magic, fortunetelling, and so forth, the Holy Spirit of God is not into showmanship to impress, amaze, and entertain. The Holy Spirit is God Himself and does not have to ‘prove’ anything. He “distributes” His supernatural gifts “as He wills,” and reveals His all-powerful gifts only when necessary; not on command or to entertain, but only for the “good and profit of all [sincere believers,]” (1 Cor. 12:11; 7.) Occasional or necessary encounters with holy angels and demons, on the other hand, either knowingly or unknowingly, is a normal part of born-again life in Christ, (Mt. 2:13; Acts 5:19-20; 12:7; 2 Cor. 12:7, etc.)
Believers, who abide by the contextual truth of the Bible, know that the spirit world is as real as the physical world. For instance, the holy, supernatural angels of God are indescribably awesome creatures; so much higher on God’s creation-scale than humanity, yet they are God’s “ministering spirits, flames of fire, whom He [alone] sends forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation,” (Heb. 1:7; 14.) God’s mighty, mostly unseen, angelical armies are always near; always here, just as God had promised in His Word, (Ps. 91.) However, to me personally, (and I believe this is the norm for all God’s sincere believers,) the Holy Spirit revealed the mighty ministrations of His holy angels only a few times during my lifetime.
CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM
Why is Blood important in the Bible as well as in pagan religions?
In Eden, before humankind sold their perfect relationship with God and their state, or position of complete blessedness for a measly fruit, the shedding of blood was unthinkable. Humanity did not kill or eat meat, and animals did not prey on one another in the Garden in Eden, as both humans and animals were vegetarians before the fall, (Gen. 1:29-30.) Despite God’s allowance to eat meat after Noah left the ark, He strictly forbade humanity to murder other human beings, to eat human flesh, (cannibalism) and to vampirize, or drink any kind of blood, as “the life, [the mind, consciousness, or the ‘soul’] of all flesh is in its blood.” (Gen. 1:30; 4:10; 9:4-6; Lev. 17:11; Deut. 12:23.)
God decreed that only a ‘soul,’ or a life, can atone for a soul, or a life. That’s why, “without the spilling of blood, [the sacrifice of the soul, consciousness, or physical life,] which makes atonement for their souls, there can be no forgiveness for their sin,” (Lev. 17:11; Heb. 9:22; Eph. 1:7.) The Spirit Filled Bible explains, “In pagan worship, the drinking of blood is sometimes incorporated into ritual practice when the participant is believed to capture, [take in and or absorb] the life force [or the soul] of a creature or a human by eating or drinking the blood.” The pagan practice of sacrificing animals and humans to ‘appease’ the gods, to find favor with them, and to buy blessing and spiritual power from them, is therefore nearly as old as humankind is.
God commanded, the Serious Crime of Murder Warrants the Death Penalty
God views the crime of murder in such a serious light that He declared the death penalty for all murderers, even for a beast that kills a human, saying, “Surely for the lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man.” (Gen. 9:1-4.)
God Himself declared that if one takes the life, (the life force; soul, mind, or consciousness) of another human being, one must pay the highest price for this highest crime against another human being by giving one’s own life, (or soul) in return. Not to atone for the horrendous sin of murder, but as punishment for taking away the life of one of the “crowns of God’s creation!”
God is the Highest Judge, Who commanded that governments give murderers the death penalty, because He placed the life force of every living thing in its blood, and forbade man to take the soul (or life) of another man, (Rom. 13:3-6.) The death penalty is also protective - deterring violent crime such as rape, armed robbery, and physical murder; thus defending the lives of the helpless and the innocent. Regardless of the fact that governments now have annulled this extremely important, protective and defending commandment of God through their distorted humanist laws, God’s significant respect for human life and for His entire defenseless creation distinguishes, or sets apart the Loving Creator God of the Bible from all deities and things that are worshipped beside Him.
It is Witchcraft to bring any other Sacrifice than the Full Atonement of Jesus
New Testament-dispensation humanity may not slaughter either humans or animals, or spill any more blood in exchange for, or to add to God’s atonement or blessing. For the sake of humanity’s complete and final redemption, God did not require the blood, life force, or soul of an ordinary human being to atone for the lostness, bondage and cursedness of humanity, as that would have been incomplete, no matter how ‘righteous’ and ‘good’ that person might have seemed, (Rom. 3:9-26.) Old Testament animal sacrifices were merely the ‘shadows’ or symbols, which pointed forward in time to the final, most sinless and therefore acceptable sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, Who would take away the sin of the whole world. (But only those who choose Him as their personal Lord and Savior are forgiven, Jn. 1:12-13; 3:16.)
The invisible God Himself, in the visible Image of His only begotten Son, was born in physical human form to live and die in this physical world of brokenness and sin for the reason to ransom all of believing humanity through His own blood sacrifice. Note that the God of the Bible never once required another human sacrifice, except the laying down of His own life, either to atone for sin, or to buy favor, redemption, and blessing from Him, (Col. 1:15; 2 Cor. 4:4b.) God never intended that Abraham should really sacrifice Isaac; it was merely a test of his faith in God. God Himself poured out His own soul as a complete and final sacrifice in the place of all humanity. From that day forward, no other sacrifice could ever be acceptable to God.
“Jesus Christ is also Mediator of a Better [New Testament] Covenant, which was established on better promises… In that He says, “a New Covenant,” He has made the first [Old Testament Covenant or the ceremonial temple law] obsolete and growing old, [during Jesus’ earthly ministry, which was now] ready to vanish away, [when He became the Lamb of God at Calvary,]” (Rom. 8:19-25; Jn. 1:27; Heb. 8:6, 13.)
If we want to keep the Old Testament Law, or even certain parts of the law such as tithing, whether to atone for sin or to ‘earn,’ “add to,” or attain His blessing, we are committing unbiblical legalism and witchcraft, which offends God greatly. Jesus also paid in full for the cursed state of lost humanity by “becoming a curse” in our place, so that sincere believers could “inherit” the full, blessed state or position of Old Testament Abraham through faith in Him, (Gal. 3:10-14.) “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse, for it is written, Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them. [If you want to keep one law, you must keep all the other laws as well, which still places you under the full curse of the Old Testament law without Christ, (Deut. 28; Gal. 2:21.)]
Satan and his followers always disregard God’s universal laws and specific Biblical commandments; His creation, precious creatures, and humans in particular. Hence, it is easy to understand why Satan continually demands blood sacrifice in exchange for demonic power, (‘kundalini’ or serpent power.) As the evil one is completely powerless against the omnipotence of God and the full atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ, he focuses his destructive witchcraft on gullible humanity and the rest of God’s innocent creation, (Gen. 3:15a; Jn. 10:10.)
SIN AGAINST NATURE IS WITCHCRAFT AGAINST IT’S CREATOR
God created His entire creation ‘very good’ because God loves His creation, takes particular notice of, and cares for every one of His creatures. Not even a “single sparrow is forgotten before God, or falls to the ground apart from our Father’s will,” (Mt. 10:29; Lu. 12:6.) At Jesus’ return on the clouds, God will redeem His entire creation from humanity’s oppression, cruel abuse, and remorseless destruction, (Rom. 8:21; 1 Ths. 4:16.) Until that day, humanity has the huge responsibility of taking care of everything God had entrusted to us, Humanity may never abuse God’s creation. God commanded us all to “tend and keep” His creation, which is Godly, answerable management of creation. To abuse animals (and the rest of God’s creation such as vegetation and other natural resources,) also constitutes complete disobedience to God’s creation principles and moral commandments.
Sin against Animals can invoke God’s Punishment on Innocent Animals as well
Satan, the hateful author of all types of witchcraft against God and His creation, uses humans to abuse animals and the rest of God’s creation most horrendously, knowing that God does not prescribe punishment for these sinful humans only, but under certain conditions, for those poor, victimized animals well. For instance, God commanded that even if a beast takes the life of a human, the beast must pay with its own life – and what does a beast know about murder, theft, hatred, and other types of sin?
It doesn’t seem fair to include innocent animals in God’s punishment when animals are abused. However, knowing God as the all-just, all-knowing Creator, we can view this seemingly incomprehensible conduct of God as loving prevention and protection of everyone involved, not the harsh punishment of the innocent. Even during the Old Testament dispensation, which was governed by the unbending Law, God revealed Himself as the caring Father, Who prescribed strict measures to prevent sin, protecting humanity at large and believers in particular from the dreadful consequences of disobeying His holy statutes. For example, God commanded Old Israel in Deut. 7:1-11, “not to make covenants and marriages” with the Gentile nations, but to “destroy their altars, break down their sacred pillars, cut down their wooden images, and burn their carved images with fire.” This only relates to New Testament believers in a spiritual and emotional way sense. Yet, even under the Old Testament Dispensation, God was not acting bias or unfair. He explained further on in this passage, “[Because] they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods… and you are a holy people to the Lord your God…”
God also warns in 1 Cor. 15:33, “Evil company corrupt good morals,” because humans learn good as well as bad behavior from one another - and so do animals. Thus, God prescribed strict actions to curb the threat, which maltreated, molested, abused, and tortured animals might pose to humans and other animals. For instance, once a lion has killed a human being for food, it is likely that it will teach other lions to do the same.
Additionally, God addressed bestiality in Lev. 20:15 and commanded, “If a man mates with an animal, he shall surely be put to death – and you shall kill the animal…” Bestiality poses a most heart-rending scenario, which depicts humanity’s incredibly sinful abuse of animals and God’s preventative protection for both man and beast.
The Innocent Animal is Never at Fault
It is interesting to note that wild animals do not naturally prey on humans. Similarly, wild animals that were never subject to sexual abuse, will never try to mate with humans, because God commanded both humans and animals to reproduce according to their own kind. I believe God placed that ‘knowing law’ into the minds of animals - not to view humans as prey or procreation. Every single time an animal, known or unknown way! Each time a beast retaliates, it happens through human encroachment on their shrinking habitat, human interference with the order of the natural world, and the misunderstanding, maltreatment, incarceration, cruel and satanic abuse, and the molestation of God’s innocent creation.
