I’ve talked about Nikola Tesla. And his life story interests me for maybe a couple of reasons. One is the fact that he spent a couple of research years right here in Colorado Springs, my current home town. And the other is his focus on the unseen realm of our world. He was a brilliant man with somewhere around 111 patents to his name. And, by most accounts, he could have had many more if he’d been more willing to file them.
What Tesla discovered in the unseen realm is still used today.
You can thank him for the electricity coming out of those sockets in the walls of your house. Well, actually not the electricity…that comes from God. But the way it comes out of the sockets was thought out by Tesla. And he put a considerable focus on X-ray and mechanical vibrations.
Nikola endured a lot of misunderstanding because of his somewhat eccentric approach to research and invention. Apparently he was sort of like the Sheldon character on The Big Bang tv show. Of course, the big difference is Nikola’s brilliance was real…not scripted. And I admire his dedication to his scientific mission.
In fact, he was so dedicated to science he never married. (side note: I can’t imagine x-rays and alternating currents ever replacing the embrace of a loving wife…but maybe that’s just me)
But, I didn’t bring up Tesla, today, to just list his accomplishments. I’m not a historian. And I have another point to make. But it relates to the scale and volume of his abilities and accomplishments. They are still tiny fragments, when you compare them to God’s infinite brilliance.
You might say they’re almost cellular, in size, when compared to God’s “inventions.”
Well, you might not say that. But I would…will…am.
Because, have you ever seen what’s going on inside a single cell in your body? It’s a rhetorical question because I know you haven’t. Unless your eyes have special x-ray and electron microscopic powers.
There’s a cool web page where you can get a hint as to what’s going on in each of those trillions of cells in your body. Click or tap this link, and when you get there, hover over the areas of the picture you see.
It’s amazing to see the universe contained in a single cell.
Nikola Tesla used his brain for a variety of amazing discoveries and inventions. He even photographed Mark Twain with one of the first pictures that used phosphorescent light. But he couldn’t begin to imagine the complexity inside a single cell. Or maybe he could imagine, but he could never, in a trillion lifetimes, design it.
But God did. And He spoke it into existence. Each cell of each living creature came into existence simply because God spoke. And his final, and most amazing, creations were you and me. Let’s see Tesla, or any other scientist (or all the scientists in the world) do that.
And there’s another part of that creation no human will ever even be able to replicate. God’s design included…
No “artificial intelligence” will ever compare to the unseen realm of God’s creation and sacrificial love.
And I hope this helps someone alternate their “current” disbelief to belief. If you’re that someone, let me know. Because that would help light up my whole electromagnetic field forever.
I’d love to help you charge your batteries
And see the power inside every cell
That God put there with sacrificial love
To give you life and keep you out of hell.
