They call it the Geometry of Chaos – FRACTALS: the never-ending repetition of a solitary geometric pattern. When it is repeated over and over again, in various scales, on various planes, it produces the illusion of infinite complexity. In reality, what seems to be random and irregular – chaotic even, is nothing more than the result of a singular blueprint compounded upon itself immeasurably.
“But God has chosen the simple (foolish) things of the world to confuse (confound) the wise (highly intelligent people); and God has chosen the weak (tiny/meaningless) things of the world to confuse (confound) the things which are mighty (complex/difficult to conquer).” I Corinthians 1:27
Jesus, a singular blueprint compounded upon itself immeasurably in various scales (as God, as man, as Holy Spirit), on various planes (in heaven and on earth). The term FRACTAL was derived from the Latin word ‘fractus’, meaning broken or fractured. When people, Christians and non-Christians, read the Bible they are often confused at the fragmented way the scriptures refer to God, to Jesus, and to the Holy Spirit.
Trinitarian based theologians argue that God is three persons in one but that each part of God, while equal, is not a singular identity. Oneness believers argue that God is Alpha and Omega; all-knowing, all-powerful, all-present (everywhere at the same time) and therefore, whether God chooses to be in the form of flesh (the man, Christ Jesus) or in the form of spirit (the Holy Ghost), He is still equally God in every scale, on every plane. As a result, the God that seems to be so random and irregular – a complete mystery even, is simply by name, JESUS; He is God compounded upon Himself from the beginning of time.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made…. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him…. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we saw him as the only begotten (son) of the Father).” I John 1:14
Mathematically speaking, based on this scripture:
If : A = B | Word = God
And : A = C | Word = Flesh
THEN : B = C | God = Flesh (seen by people as “the only begotten son” aka: Jesus)
It could be said that the first part of John chapter one is quite mathematical; as well, Jesus confirmed its formula in John 10:30 when he said: “I and my Father are one.” The infinite complexity of God, creatively speaking, can be compared to fractals; starting with JESUS at the foundation – He is the pattern.
That same Jesus, as He existed in the New Testament, ALREADY EXISTED (as a concept or rather a WORD, and the Holy Spirit or rather GOD) in the Old Testament. The illusion is that God is complex and yet the complexity of God has ALWAYS been found in JESUS: Jesus who is compounded upon Himself … in various scales…. on various planes… for all eternity. JESUS is the all-inclusive name of God.
A deeper understanding of the Old Testament Jehovah-God reveals that this same Lord God most assuredly visited our earthly plane from heaven on high. Jehovah-God came into this world as the Lord Jesus. God came to earth in the tiniest, measurable scale – a baby human. God, who was ALWAYS JESUS, lived as His creation lived. God, who was always Jesus, came here for a brief period in the timeline of eternity to experience humanity as we do. For the first time in human history, we came to know God’s true identity; we came to know His real name: Jesus Christ, which literally means “Anointed Savior”!
And what exactly was His goal in doing this? It was to gain more compassion for us, so that through His experience as Jesus Christ in “the flesh”, that He (God) might feel even more mercy for us and impart to us even more grace! And this is why the New Testament often refers to us finding our way to “God” THROUGH “Jesus”, which is to say, that we have found more grace and more mercy and a way to be saved (salvation) from the wrath of God THROUGH His (God’s) experience as a man (Christ Jesus)…. because THROUGH the “man” of God (aka: begotten son), God is ultimately and forever more, forgiving!
“For we have NOT an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15
