The study of the universe has always fascinated me. As a youth I studied the starry skies with a good quality telescope and was amazed at its vastness and beauty. A number of very late nights were spent outdoors so that timing allowed for the observation of a planet or some exciting event in the heavens. It seemed strange to me that all this was taking place in the sky and yet it passed quietly with so few people being aware of it. This lack of awareness was evident during one of the most dramatic astronomical moments I have experienced in my lifetime...
As an international harp instructor, and inventor with a patented new electric harp called the Harpella (see www.harptronics.com), my involvement with music, technology and ministry, has facilitated wonderful opportunities to travel around the globe. In the fall of 2015, I assembled a team of harpists from my previous Schools of the Prophetic Harp (see www.propheticharp.com) and set up a tour to play harp and undertake intercessory prayer in Jerusalem during the last of the four “Blood Moons”, the only one of four that was visible from Israel. This “Tetrad” of lunar eclipses holds particular prophetic significance in relation to Bible prophecy found in Joel 2, so we felt it was important to be in the Land at this auspicious moment in history. The night of the total eclipse our team was struck with awe and wonder as we watched the moon being swallowed up by the shadow of the earth. The thrill of the event was captured in a music video that was produced and can be viewed at the bottom of the website page www.propheticharp.com/bloodmoon Strangely, despite the fact that this event had caught world-wide attention, during our observation and prayer vigil at the Haas Promenade in the Talpiot neighborhood in Jerusalem, no one else was there! The fully eclipsed moon, with its ominous red coloring and foreboding prophetic significance, set early that morning while still occluded with hardly anyone taking notice.
So it is with the Spiritual Realm. Sadly, that which is ultimately real in the Kingdom of God, so few are able to take notice and benefit from understanding of the physics of heaven. The intention of the Quantum Faith Portal is to help you recapture the awe of God’s universe and point to the realities of how His Kingdom works, particularly as the lines of understanding of the physics of earth intersect with the Spiritual Laws of God. We will act as a kind of information filter which, as a believer, will help your sort through that which is relevant and factual versus that which is spurious and unsubstantiated.
In its simplest expression, the discussion in this Virtual Study Hall will help you to understand the nature of the universe that we live in and how this can make a dramatic impact in your life as you come to understand what I call “The Frequency of Faith”. This idea of all that is in the universe is defined by the resonance of frequencies that are a part of everything, is explicitly connected to Quantum Physics. It is amazing to consider how this rapidly expanding field of knowledge seemingly confirms many concepts that are presented in the Bible. What is exciting about Quantum Physics is that it ventures into the strange realms of both natural science and the supernatural. We will examine how the world around us is defined and is effected by both natural laws and spiritual principles as presented to us in both the New and Old Testaments. It is my hope that through an impartation of understanding of these laws that you will encounter God and be empowered to see your life and the life of others transformed.Through this understanding it is my hope that you will get a sense of your place in God's great universe and come to embrace your identity and destiny in relation to your Creator!
We invite you to take in this first session of Quantum Faith Portal in The KingsBridge Study Center, free of charge, but hope you will be inspired to join our membership (fees are $20 USD per month or $30 for all 3 areas of study) and continue on with our Virtual Study Hall.

Quantum Faith Portal - Session One: Creation the Fingerprints of God
In the Beginning
Genesis 1:1 -3 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
There is no better place to start our discussion than in the beginning. Unlike any other explanation given of creation in various cultures and religions, the Genesis account chronicles with amazing insight the timeline of a singularity that became our universe. When we speak of a singularity, this refers to a single point in the universe where all of matter originated from and emanated out from. This terminology also is used to define the instance of a black hole where a star has collapsed upon itself leaving a super-dense mass. However, the event of creation spectacularly goes beyond our scope of comprehension.
This massive mind-boggling release of energy and matter that made up the galaxies of the entirety of space would have warped the very fabric of time and space in such a manner that all estimates of how time functioned would be unknowable. In that highly charged environment, the use of the time frames given in the six days of creation lose their meaning when trying to define time as we comprehend it. Time, as we experience it, is very much different from the reality of its true nature which is affected by factors such as relative position of observation in reference to speed and the proximity to gravitational fields. This aspect of time differentiation was wonderfully portrayed in the recent Science Fiction movie Interstellar. The topic of the nature of time and space will be handled in a future session.
The Heavens Declare the Glory of God
Astronomers and Astrophysicists observe that all matter in the cosmos is currently accelerating away from itself. If we reversed time and view the universe we would watch everything converge back to this single point in the universe. Scientists have called this the Big Bang, but in essence this is the Genesis account. When God said “Let there be light” from that moment on that burst of light, representing much more than energy being released in the visual spectrum, exploded in all directions giving us the physical universe as we observe to this day. Everything is expanding from one point, which argues strongly for a causality... God.
King David declares in Psalm 19:1-4
The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world.
We know that the vibration of God’s voice during creation was not a literal sound as defined by the audio spectrum that could be heard. In the beginning the void of nothing held no medium for sound to act as a pressure wave. Regardless, there was, of course, no human in existence to hear His voice. Interestingly, there were some sentient beings who observed this. In Job 38:4-7 we are told that when the foundations of the earth were laid the “morning stars sang together, and the Sons of God shouted for joy” referring to the angelic host. What amazing music that must have been to provide a soundtrack for God’s creative acts. To more accurately describe this act of creation through the voice of God, it was the unleashing of the resonance of God’s will being imposed on this new reality of this dimension. All matter was called into existence and set vibrating with the essence of the energy that God put into the universe by His “voice”. This is the very demonstration of omnipotence.
Hebrews 11:3 says “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God...”
So through the mechanism of creation we see demonstrated these “Fingerprints of God” that argue His existence. Just like an artist is able to express their thoughts and feelings, the awesomeness of God is revealed.
The Goldilocks Effect
From my youth and to this day I still am in awe of the fact that the cosmos clearly runs like clockwork within an astounding number of extremely tightly balanced tolerances. This phenomena is called the “Goldilocks Effect”. This is where if one factor or another were not within a certain narrow range (either too much or too little), it defines how the very existence of life and the universe itself could not exist as we know it without these factors being “just right”. And as science has advanced, this list of factors has continued to grow so much so that it would take more “Faith” to believe that there was not a Creator, than to allow for this list to convince you that there had to be a Divine Intelligence behind it all.
An example of this is the Cosmic Constant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmological_constant which addresses the delicate balance between the amount of matter and energy in the universe. Too much or too little would not allow for the cosmos and life itself, as we know it, to exist. In one case all that is in the universe would fall back on itself. In the other case, the there would not be enough to allow for stars and galaxies to form. In fact, this ratio is so narrow that one is forced to consider that there had to be an intelligence behind it all. This fact was brought home to me when I attended a Creation Science seminar and the findings of an atheist cosmologist were presented. In this study, the amount of Dark Matter was calculated and consequently a significant conclusion was made. In the summary of this cosmologist’s findings he stated that the measurement that was made were so precisely within an extremely narrow band of tolerance (i.e. not too much and not too little) that it indicated that there had to be a Divine Intelligence influencing this balance. Amazingly, as he could not bring himself to accept this possibility, he publicly stated that his empirical measurements must be wrong, since, as an atheist, he was convinced that such a God did not exist!
Paul the Apostle states in Romans 1:20a
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead...
In my youth, the stars and all of creation spoke to me and I was convinced that there was a Creator. I also deduced that if one could get to know such a God, that in His loving care, no matter where I was on the earth, He would watch over me and sustain me. And so I gave my heart to Him and have never since been disappointed throughout a lifetime experiencing the grand adventure of getting to know the King of the Universe.
Study Questions (useful in a group discussion of this material):
1. What is a “black hole” and how is it similar to the event of creation?
2. What was effected by the initial release of energy and matter and how could that have played a role in the counting of the 6 days of creation?
3. What aspect of creation argues strongly for a causality?
4. What declares the glory of God every night?
5. Was anyone around during creation to hear God’s voice, if so, who?
6. What is the “Goldilocks Effect”?
7. Why would the “Goldilocks Effect” be a proof of a Creator?
The answer to these questions are found in the text above, but will be posted specifically in the next session of Quantum Faith Portal, which will be available by enrolling and becoming a member of the KingsBridge Study Center.
