Pt. 5 – The Quantum Connection
There is a term in quantum physics called “superposition” and it describes a situation in which something is fully in two places at the same time. Jesus said about Himself, “No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven” (Jn. 3:13 NKJV). He was on earth and He was in heaven simultaneously.
We are also living on earth at the same time we are seated in the heavenlies (Eph. 2:4-6). We are spirits and we can move in the spirit realm easily by praying to God and connecting with Him. Concurrently, we are also in a physical, flesh-and-blood body, which makes it equally convenient for us to function in this tangible world.
Therefore, we are perfectly, uniquely, gloriously designed to be the bridge. We are the connectors and conduits that bridge the spiritual realm with the material realm and bring heaven to earth. It happens through us. We are walking embassies of heaven, bringing that kingdom with us wherever we go.
Indeed, that’s what Jesus did. I imagine when a sick person came to Him He explained, “Actually here? Around Me? This is the kingdom of heaven. And in heaven we don’t have sickness, so you are healed.”
Or a demonized person came up to Him and Jesus motions with His arms, “Well actually, this. This right here? This is heaven. And satan doesn’t have any authority in heaven, so you’re delivered.”
Or Jesus is walking along and all of a sudden comes upon a funeral procession. His response: “You know, right here, where I am… This is heaven. And in the kingdom of heaven there is no death. So dead guy, just come on back to life.”
And that’s what we get to do too. Jesus is still alive. He’s still doing things! We must simply look into the spirit and see what He’s doing and model it.
The Observer Effect
Yet one of the most intriguing concepts of this revelation is the “observer effect”. As demonstrated in the double-slit experiment, it is a key feature of quantum physics and is, in fact, universally understood to be the most mysterious yet foundational principle in the entire field of study. A simple definition of the observer effect is that by observing something, we affect and change it.
This is especially fascinating in light of all the Scriptures we read on the importance of looking and seeing. Fix our eyes on Jesus (Heb. 12:2). Look at things that are unseen (2 Cor. 4:18). Set our minds on the spirit (Rom. 8:4-7). Focus our intention on the things above (Col. 3:1-4). And most of all: Receive the anointing to be witnesses (Acts 1:8). Watchers. We have been baptized by His Spirit, who breaks open the supernatural realm for us, empowering us to be observers, lookers, and seers.
Jesus did only what He saw Father do in the spirit realm and spoke only what He heard from that realm. So we absolutely do the same. We look into the supernatural world and model what is going on there. We copy and imitate it, and that’s important.
According to quantum physics, however, much more is happening than we even realize. That is, before we actually imitate and model Jesus, before we even actively follow His lead, our very act of observation has already played a part in creating in our world what we see in His. We want to “change” what we are observing in the spirit so that it is not just a supernatural reality, but also something that is visible in the natural realm. We want to “affect” the truth of the spiritual world so that it is evidenced in the material world too.
Vision is a bridge that moves the kingdom of heaven from the spiritual side of the realm over to the tangible side. Our seeing it, our act of observation, effects an outcome the same way physicists have proven in their laboratories. We witness Jesus and His kingdom, and that very looking and listening changes our world by manifesting His reality on this side of the dimension.
Jesus is the Leader whose example we follow, and He observed (Jn. 5:19-20). He looked (Jn. 8:38). He listened to the spirit (Jn. 5:30). So we get to do these things whether we understand the full ramifications of our obedience or not. But by practicing the biblical art of meditation and looking at and listening to the spirit world, we are actually partnering with God as co-creators, manifesting His kingdom of heaven in our physical realm of earth.
“The heavens are the Lord’s, but the earth He has given to the sons of men” (Ps. 115:16). That’s us. This is our earth that we get to make look just like heaven. We’re the ambassadors and co-creators. We’re the observers and witnesses. God has given us a part to play. He does the work. He creates the miracles and brings heaven to earth, but He does it with us. In us. Through us.
Observation plays an essential role in bridging the kingdom. Once we learn to see what Jesus sees, we begin to heal the rift within the realm. We are infinitely more powerful than we have ever imagined. We are God’s image bearers in this world, and by observing His spiritual kingdom, we help cause it to be on the earth.
Bill Johnson teaches that whatever we are conscious of we manifest. We always release the reality of the world of which we are most aware. So when we are cognizant of the atmosphere of heaven, the peace of His presence, and Christ Himself, we can impart Him. We can radiate His life and release His power into our world.
Through our practiced observation we become portals of glory and see the answer materialize to Jesus’ prayer and to ours… “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
