One way to describe the character of God is this:
God is omnipotent (all powerful), but also omniscient (knows all things) and omnipresent (is everywhere at all times). God operates out of twelve dimensions. We humans see only three dimensions. For example: take a match box and hold it between your thumb and forefinger. Without moving it, how may sides can you see, only three. This is what is referred to as three dimensional.
Now, taking the same matchbox, God sees six sides outside, not just three; but at the same time He sees from the inside out; another six sides. This is called twelve dimensional. In addition to this He is the very source of all beneficial things.
Because of His love and in His power, He created the earth and the universe. He populated the earth with fauna & flora and then created His masterpiece – Humanity. His sole reason for doing this was so He would be able to express his identity, replicate His creativity and have a relationship with His creation.
At this point we need to broaden our understanding a little by considering the actual construction of the earth. The earth, like the universe in which it is contained, is a living moving mass. Subject to time and seasons. Because of these conditions, the movements of the earth, the seasons and conditions of the atmosphere there are phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanoes, cyclones and hurricanes, just to name a few. These phenomena are often referred to as an “Act of God”.
Far from being a vindictive, capricious, manipulative act of a God, whom no one can understand, they are simply natural phenomena, all part of the living evolving of earth and its universe. Bear in mind that the Universe has, since its inception, been an evolving mass.
We must all understand and appreciate that the earth is on a course, manipulated and maneuvered by its construction and the universe of which it is part. All its inhabitants will experience the processes of the earth’s evolvement in their varying natures and intensities as long as it is occupied.
Humankind is different however. Humankind is governed, not by a process of evolution, but rather by the law of cause and effect. Humans DO NOT have the power to affect the environment in its long term destiny. But they do suffer the effects of their own doings toward one another and their environment.
Simply put, no one of us is ever in the wrong place at the wrong time. We are exactly where our thinking and subsequent action have brought us.
Can God change the course of events in this world? Yes He can, but He will never go against His own plan for humankind and the universe (this die is cast eternally). In short, He will not change the course of events in this world. He leaves that up to humanity to attempt to change, as they deem fit. (e.g. under ocean and underground nuclear tests; the atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki etc.).
Will the intelligence and reason He gave us allow us to understand EVERY decision and choice He has made, as part of His greater plan – No.
His original plan was initiated from a twelve dimensional mind.
As three-dimensional beings, how can we hope to understand twelve dimensional reasoning?
When we use modern technology, climb on an airplane or see other humans in a spacecraft, do we understand the intricate workings of all these things, even though we are intelligent and have the power to reason – No.
The very best any of us humans can hope for is that we would come to love God with all our hearts, minds and strength. This will reap us the reward of eternal life and give us a sure blueprint of how to live a happy and successful life on this earth.
