Dear Jered and Julie,
You may find it strange that I decided to send you a ‘Happy Birthday’ card rather than the traditional ‘Happy Anniversary’ card. But allow me to explain.
Three hundred, sixty five and one quarter days ago the two of you- Jered Murphy [JM] and Julie Anthony [JA] were joined together before God. Genesis 2:24 gives us reasoning:
“…and they shall become one flesh”.
Though I don’t quite understand the process, I must confess that it is a God idea and worth our contemplation.
But this would lead any good physics student to wonder if God follows the laws of conservation of energy and mass. Since we don’t know this vital information, from here on out we will be purely speculative. If we assume God follows the conservation of mass and energy then we are led to believe that He will take the individual spirits and bring them together to form something twice as large as original. This idea is illustrated by sewing two pieces of fabric together. They will either be twice as long or twice as thick. But we must consider the following equation:
1JM + 1JA = 2JMJA
Is the resultant 2JMJA volumetrically double the individual volumes of 1JM and 1JA? What significance does this volume have? Would the combination hinder the individual activity and is the combination as efficient as they would be if separate?
But the trouble with this equation is that it forms a resultant unity that changes the overall distribution of spiritual proportion before God.
Let us consider the following equation assuming God does not follow conservation laws:
1JM + 1JA = 1JMJA
We can clearly see that this equation does not follow the conservation of mass and energy laws. But what it does keep intact is the spiritual proportion before God of all His people. But if the two become one then we are led to think you become half of the resultant spirit. We would be wise to consider where the missing volume of spirit has gone but will not do so here. We may also wonder if the lost volume means a loss of any specific trait.
When you look at this latter equation you see that you could remain fully individual and yet fully comprised of the other as long as the volume occupied were the same. And of course we will ignore the Pauli Exclusion Principle from here on out. Then the entity and personality that exists is a homogenous fusion of Jered and Julie. Thusly we could consider them one before God neither defying mass and energy conservation nor volumetric differences. This would be similar to storing one box within another of same volume and mass.
Heretofore the creation before God is new. It is a spiritual creation that had not previously existed in the reality of God. It was a unity that was created one year ago. We now celebrate its first year of existence. Existence in the sense that it was planned by God but remained hidden from the eyes of men until it’s time had fully come.
And so, one year ago today a new creation was formed before God and men. A spiritual entity that God has bound together, blessed and nurtured. So for this reason I forsake saying a typical ‘Happy Anniversary’ and instead wish you a Happy Birthday!
