The Law of Entropy

Good Morning Everyone!

What a tremendous blessing it truly is to see all of you here today!

All praise and glory to God!
Amen?

AMEN!

"Whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it"
Acts 2:24 NKJV

"But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."
Acts 2:24 NIV

I don't know about you, but I love that language!

We tend to think of dying and coming back to life as being impossible. Peter says the exact opposite. It was impossible for death to keep its grip on The Way, The Truth, and The Life.

Let me give you a crash course in thermodynamics.

Thermodynamics is the study of energy in all of its different forms. The first and second laws of thermodynamics describe the way the process works. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy is conserved. In other words, energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be exchanged for a different kind of energy. For example, if you push a boulder off a cliff you convert gravitational energy into kinetic energy.

But there is another law at work and it’s the reason why ice cream melts on a summer day and coffee cools on a winter day. The second law of thermodynamics introduces something called entropy into the equation. It basically states that if left to its own devices, everything moves towards randomness and disorder. Cars rust. Toys break. And food rots. And for the readers who are parents, kid’s rooms get real messy real fast.

Am I right?

Entropy

Now let me give you one of my definitions of sin: sin is entropy. Sin is moving toward disorder. For what it’s worth, the word “holiness” means set apart sacred taken up with the opposite of that is untaken up with. It is becoming more and more fragmented. It is moving toward disorder. And the end result is a meaningless existence because there is no center of gravity.


"Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
 but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction."

Psalms 29:18

Now let me attempt to frame vision in terms of physics. There is a pretty cool concept that is the counterpart of entropy.
Anyone know what that is?
It’s called negentropy. 
Negentropy is the increase of information, a vision revelation, that results in the decrease of disorder. 

To make it a bit clearer, if sin is entropy then vision is negentropy!

The only way to prevent entropy is to introduce some outside energy source that counteracts it. A refrigerator for example. You plug it into an electrical outlet and it produces cold air that keeps food from spoiling and ice cream from melting. 

But if you disconnect that refrigerator from its energy source, entropy will take over again.
 

Church, that is exactly what happens to us spiritually when we are disconnected from God and His Word. 
Entropy takes over!
The only way to overcome entropy is to plug into God.
Reverse the Curse!
say that with me...

REVERSE THE CURSE! 

AMEN! AMEN!

Now allow me to preach for a minute..

Let's look at the Scripture through a wide-angled lens. If you go all the way back to the beginning you can see the introduction of entropy at a place called Eden. Genesis 2:16 says, “And God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will certainly die.”

This is the first time the word “die” appears in Scripture. It comes from the Hebrew word muwth which means “to die prematurely.”

Here’s the deal: God intended Adam and Eve to live forever, but sin introduced the process of decay also known as entropy. 

Let me be even a little more specific, if I may...

So sin introduced entropy—the process of decay and disorder and disharmony. Romans 8:21 says we are “in bondage to decay.” In other words, entropy is inescapable. But Jesus came to “set the captives free.” 


I believe redemption and sanctification and glorification are all about reversing the curse.
It’s about reversing the effects of spiritual and relational and emotional and intellectual and physical entropy.

Jesus described his mission this way in John 10:10: “The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy.” 
The thief is simply another name for the ancient serpent and he’s still doing today exactly what he was doing then: Introducing entropy into our lives!
But Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” That’s negentropy!

Now let me take you on a journey to the end of the book. 
God reverses the curse in Revelation 21....

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.’

It’s the end of spiritual entropy!

Let's all give a shout of praise and glory to Almighty God!

Thank You God!
Hallelujah! 

But let's not stop there!
Let's look at verse 4..
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Church, that's the end of relational entropy!
It’s the end of intellectual entropy!

"For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known."
1 Corinthians 13:12

Now let's take a look at Revelation 21:5
"Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

I don't know about you, but that surly sounds like the end of entropy to me!
God will release us from the second law of thermodynamics. 
He will bring order out of chaos, negentropy.
Just like He did in Genesis 1:2

In closing....

Our God, Our Creator, Our Father in heaven, is in the business of reversing the irreversible!

Church, that is what the empty tomb represents. 
But He doesn’t just want to reverse physical entropy when you die,
He wants to reverse the emotional and intellectual and relational and spiritual entropy in your life now!

Today, in this very moment...
He's reaching down His Mighty hand to YOU..

But it's up to you..
It's YOUR choice...
Will YOU to take His hand..
and begin a new life in Jesus Christ today?

And now may the the Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.


Now and forever, in Jesus' name
Amen

You Can't Quarantine The Word of God

" 35  Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there. 36  Simon and his companions went searching for Him. 37  They found Him and said, “Everyone’s looking for You!” 38  And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.” 39  So He went into all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. 40  Then a man with a serious skin disease came to Him and, on his knees, begged Him: “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41  Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him. “I am willing,” He told him. “Be made clean.” 42  Immediately the disease left him, and he was healed. 43  Then He sternly warned him and sent him away at once, 44  telling him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer what Moses prescribed for your cleansin
