Our present age is one of great uncertainty. There is a pervasive knowing among hundreds of millions of people on this planet that we are moving towards some great impending disaster or cataclysm. It is a collective knowing that is primal and ancient in its instincts, like the way animals behave before an earthquake. In addition, to those who are awake, there is the knowledge of the gathering forces of evil. Historically, this kind of sociological environment leads to a kind mass gambling mentality.
People begin to throw the dice with their lives, marriages, and morals. They do not know what tomorrow may bring, or even if there will be a tomorrow? This was the climate of the French Revolution, where a topless woman rode on horseback as a human symbol of the goddess of reason. French philosophers, like Rousseau, fueled the flames of a humanist revolution which rejected the notion of a God and His laws. Orgies were held in the sanctuaries of the churches, and a bloody and violent revolution occurred. Thousands were beheaded on the guillotines and the radical, Robespierre, began his, “Reign of Terror.” The French philosophers and revolutionaries overthrew the power of the church and replaced it with the power of man. The idea of an irrational universe with no Personal God, just random chance and luck, produces a fertile climate for totalitarianism.
America and the world are following in the footsteps of the French Revolution, where life has no meaning and we are here simply rolling the genetic dice. In a world that has become a gambler’s paradise, it is clear that an inner courage is being summoned and a call for a strength that is way beyond our current human capacity will be needed for what lies ahead.
In Francis Ford Coppola’s, “Apocalypse Now,” he depicted the chaos of that time and we see that chaos, emerging again in our contemporary films. What does the future hold and is it possible to predict outcomes? The problem is that when we have conducted such an analysis and stared into the chaos, it is possible to become overwhelmed by fear, as if one stared into the great abyss and the rise of an Orwellian super-state. The spiritual force of fear rips through our consciousness, like a paralyzing electrical current that immobilizes, for that is its intent. But, one does not have to surrender to the riptide of that fear. For there is a greater force than fear and that is the force of faith. True faith overcomes fear. True faith is not a mystical faith that offers the solace of a rabbit’s foot or feeling lucky with the Great Casino in the Sky. It is a scientific faith anchored in a specific event that occurred in real space-time-history. That event is the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead in front of numerous witnesses. That one single event changes all of human history both past, present, and future. It is like walking in from the dark desert of Darwinian evolutionary random chance into a great Las Vegas casino all lit up. Yet, when you walk into the room the odds instantly change. All of a sudden, you win at everything you play and the house can’t stop it! It is not a matter of luck, the odds have actually, mathematically changed.
As we look into the future and look at our lives, we must remember that an event occurred that changed our odds forever. For example, it is a scientific fact that every man or woman who is born dies. But, through faith, the odds have changed. You die, but then you resurrect from the dead, with a new body. That should not happen! It is against house rules. The casino owner is furious, because he bought your soul. But somebody more powerful bought you back, with one condition. The condition is you have to accept the fact that He bought you back. You have to believe it. The only way the odds change and the house rules are suspended is when you believe it.
That may sound simplistic and something out of a Fairy Tale. The beautiful princess kisses the frog and the frog is transformed into a handsome prince. The simplicity in dealing with cosmic odds bothers a lot of people, it actually offends them. But, you have to understand the mathematics of what happens when you roll the dice. You are dealing with mathematical law and physics. Like Albert Einstein’s E=mc2.
Whether or not neutrinos are faster than light, Einstein’s equation released the power of the nuclear bomb or nuclear power plant. Some believe that the energy released could produce a Star Trek-type, warp drive technology. The resurrection of Jesus Christ released infinite power into our seemingly finite universe. The same power that created the universe at the beginning of time is the same power that resurrected Christ from the dead. It is the same power that will create the future.

The reality is that the casino does not control the odds and their house rules will vaporize at the speed of light due to the energy released in the resurrection. Even the darkest projections concerning the human future cannot withstand the power of this released energy to resurrect people from the dead and create a new heaven and new earth. However, atomic energy was only released when Einstein’s mathematical formula was applied. In the same way the power of the resurrection can only be applied when it is received into the human heart through belief. Its complexity lies in its simplicity, the divine conundrum.
When the cosmic dice are thrown, the odds are now fixed in your favor. You resurrect from the dead and the future is changed. The pervasive darkness is dissipated by the dazzling light of a wondrous future, a thousand times brighter than the casino. A lot of people don’t know it yet, but the house rules were broken a long time ago. All great gamblers understand that beyond the roll of the dice, it’s about the math.
Do the math and believe.
