In 2013, Quantum Physicists supposedly proved that our reality is but a subset of the true reality. What does that mean? It means that our four dimensional reality is but a shadow of a higher dimension.
A great example is the two dimensional shadow, which is cast, by our three dimensional bodies, onto the ground, when standing in the light.
Now, let's look at the Scriptures and look at how they portray our existence.
"Those who dwell, in the shelter of the Most High, abides in the shadow of Shaddai, the Almighty."
"Man resembles a breath in his days, a shadow that passes away."
"Who serves as the example and shadow of heavenly things…"
Well, as always, science continues to prove the Bible correct.
Where are those, who ridicule Bible readers, that take the Bible literally, now?
In the past, we were ridiculed by non-literalist, atheist and nonbelievers alike. Even some literalists have to step back and re-examine the fact, that they haven't taken the scriptures, literally enough.
In order to anchor yourselves, to reality, God has set up his Word to be interpreted literally first and foremost, before going into the levels of metaphoric, symbolic and so on. God continues to prove his Word above and before all.
