Jesus Reveals Christianity's "E=MC2"
The most famous mathematical equation in the world today is E=MC2.
Einstein figure that out. Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. This is the formula that transforms matter, like plutonium, or uranium, into energy.
It’s just a simple little equation, but it has profoundly changed all of our lives. It’s what we talk about – who has nuclear power and what will they with it? It’s what won WWII. For many people, this little equation is what brings electricity into their homes.
Today we’re going to see the E=MC2 of Christianity
The first part of Jesus’ response to the Jewish authorities anger had two bookends, Verses 19, 30 which describe a relationship between the Father and the Son that is so close that neither does anything without the other. Their wills are joined, their judgments are the same
So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise."
"I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me."[John 5:19,30]
This is of particular interest to you and me who have put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our relationship with Him is the same as His relationship with the Father.
In and of ourselves we have no power. I know that flies in the face of all those self help books that tell you to reach deep into yourself and find your power, realize your potential. It’s not there, not this kind of power.
Jesus is our model. As He was one with the Father’s will, He received
* God’s vision,
* God’s works,
* God’s power
to do everything that was given Him.
So you and I, the more we willingly melt our wills with the Lord’s, we too will receive His vision, all the things He has planned for us, and the power to do it all.
This is our spiritual E=MC2.
As God works in you, He also works through you as His witness to others.

As I was seeking a prophetic blessing from God over this book, He quickened to my heart the following sentence: "Albert Einstein was right when he said everything is relative." I couldn't think of a subject less related to the spiritual eye of the tiger than Albert Einstein (1879-1955), the greatest physicist of all time. His theory of relativity forever changed how scientists view the universe, but relativity as a spiritual concept sounded dangerous. "Relativity" at first seemed inappropriate when applied to an "absolute" God, but when I looked the term up in the dictionary I was shocked. Relativity means, "a thing having a relation to or a connection with or necessary dependence on another thing." My heart leapt at the three key terms: "relation to," "connection with" and "necessary dependence on." The Lord's word to me meant that Einstein's central law of the physical universe was also the central law of the spiritual universe. All creation is meant to flow in "relation to," "connection with" and "necessary dependence on" the spirit of the living God.
This wonderful "God-relativity" is the apple of every spiritual eye of the tiger. It is the crown of a victorious walk with God - - to relate, connect and necessarily depend on the Holy Spirit in all of life. The Apostle Paul said to obtain this crown of communion from God, we must run the race to win the prize, fight our flesh relentlessly and strive for "mastery" in all things. 1 Cor. 9:24-27. In other words, we must have the spiritual eye of the tiger. A. W. Tozer said it this way, "It may be." True eye-of-the-tiger faith is born in the hungry depths of gut-level, passionate "wanting" rather than the shallow, stagnant waters of mental "wishing."
The E=MC2 DietThe most famous equation in all of science is Albert Einstein's E=MC2. His theory of relativity is based on this formula, where E stands for "Energy," M for "Mass" and C for "the Speed of Light." The Lord recently revealed to me that spiritual relativity is also based on this formula, where E stands for "the Eye of the Tiger," M stands for "Messiah" and C2 stands for intensified "Craving." ("Messiah" is the Hebrew word for "Christ," or "anointed one."). Thus, the Eye of the Tiger = Messiah Craving2. Hunger for Jesus. Intense appetite for His anointing. Are you truly hungry to walk in closer intimacy with Him? Before you answer this question, I want to challenge you to do an earnest "gut check" on your heart hunger.
SACRAMENTS: IN GENERAL
God - A Community of Persons
In this course on the Sacraments we begin without arguing about whether or not there is, in fact, a God. Likewise, the existence of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is taken as a datum given to us by Jesus Christ. There is no point in arguing about those givens here. That discussion is in another area of theology, namely the nature and content of Revelation.
Sacramental theology raises to the level of apprehension (but not comprehension) the dynamic relationships between the Persons of the Blessed Trinity. They are distinct but not separate Persons. We can distinguish between them but we can never separate them.
Theological NoteWhenever God acts in and through a Sacrament, He acts triunely. He always acts as He is, namely the Three acting through and in One.
Theology appropriates certain activities to each of the Persons of God, but always holds that they act in their unity as the Trinity.
Ultimately God is simple, not complex. (cf. St. Thomas Aquinas). PARADOX: Complexity points to simplicity, to the balanced tension between the simplicity of unity and the complexity of interdependence. For an outstanding example, consider Einstein's famous equation E=mc2.
I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.
Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.
Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth. I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!
You may think I am being absurd but I’d like to illustrate how words can sometimes get in the way and that silence can have an important value. Consider some examples:
1. It is widely attested that Albert Einstein did not talk until he was three or four years of age
Thomas Sowell even wrote a book called The Einstein Syndrome: Bright Children Who Talk Late. Some biographers think it was just that he was shy and thoughtful, others wonder at a mild autism. But in the end, Einstein spent a longer period observing the "is-ness" of things before "reducing" them to words.
I have often wondered if this is how he was able to think past the usual categories and see the ultimate inter-relatedness of thingsWho would have thought that matter is really frozen energy and also be able to relate its quantity to the speed of light!? E=MC2 is a bolt out of the blue! The amount of energy in something is its mass, multiplied by the speed of light squared?!? Who would have thunk it? And yet, there it is. It is almost as though an angel must have whispered this great secret to Einstein. And yet again, how could he grasp that time and space were really a continuum? How could he abstract that, as we approach the speed of light, time would slow down? Where did he get this insight which is far from obvious or easily tested by experience?
My own theory is that Einstein, in addition to his intellectual gifts, had spent more time in silence than most of us. Words didn’t "get in the way" too soon for him and he thus spent more time in an enchanted world where things were all aspects of some "One great thing" that caused them all to be inter-related and, ultimately one. I am not saying it was necessarily a conscious awareness he had as an adult. Perhaps it was just that this intuition of the oneness of things had deeper roots in him because he did not "too early" sort things out and file them all away in separate boxes.
"E=MC2 and 'God Was in Christ Reconciling the World to Himself': An Unbridgeable Chasm?" in Gerard S. Sloyan, ed., Religions of the Book (Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 1996), 253-272.
A Relational Perspective On The Eucharistic Mystery Of Presence
Prof. Lakshman Madurasinghe, PhD...A third important discovery, expressed in Einstein’s theory of special relativity as the famous equation E=mc2, is that matter is not indestructible, but is rather a form of energy that may be transformed into other forms of energy or matter.
We can no longer think of an atom as a solid particle; it is mostly empty space. Matter has a dual aspect – particle and wave. Further, matter is no longer seen as something dead but as a condensation of vibrating energy. In reality, solid matter is only a condensation or a concentrated manifestation of an underlying un manifest field of energy and intelligence that permeates and upholds everything in creation.
Einstein's scientific considerations are basically a repetition of ancient esoteric and paradoxical descriptions of the universe. His work has legitimized, in the mathematical, scientific terms of the twentieth century, a certain level of higher consideration about material existence. We have, in both the popular and academic areas of our industrial societies, accepted the general and technical implications of this very sophisticated and elaborate understanding of the elemental world, but we have not realized what that understanding implies about the world and about Man altogether. We are still suffering the cultural limitations upon which our scientific civilization has always been based. Scientists continue merely to think and doubt and exploit the worldly powers of their own enterprise, and they have not yet supported the creation of a total human culture based on the implications of their own discoveries to date. "E=mc²" actually and exactly means the same thing to us today, to our nervous systems, to the individual body-mind or being, that "Christ is risen from the dead" meant 2,000 years ago. "E=mc²" is exactly what "Christ is risen from the dead" means. E=mc² is good news! It proclaims that matter is energy—that the body-mind of every human being can be Realized to be energy, or light.

Energy is a powerful image. It takes us down to the cellular level as energy becomes food sacrificed so that cells can divide, and therefore multiply, and life begins and ends and begins again. Energy as light and heat. Energy’s destructive power, like nuclear energy in Japan or wind and wave energy in a hurricane – the shadow side. Energy’s regenerative power – "Mortal, can these bones live?…and the bones came together, bone to its bone….and the breath came into them and they lived." Destruction, regeneration: Dancing Shiva and the ring of fire. The Eucharist – Sacramental Energy; "Deliver us, O Lord, from the presumption of coming to this table for solace only and not for strength; for pardon only, and not for renewal." E=mc2. Big Bang energy and the expanding universe: another way of imaging the now and the not yet. "In the beginning was the Energy and Energy was with God and the Energy was God." Science and Art, fraternal twins.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
