The Spiritual Internet

Jesus says whoever believes in him will have “rivers of living water flow from within them”.

So what is living water?

What does living water do?

The book of Acts answers these questions. The book of Acts is basically the gospel of the Holy Spirit. But before we get into Acts, it’s important to remember that the Holy Spirit isn’t magical or mystical, it’s TECHNOLOGICAL.

Let’s start by reviewing Arthur C. Clarke’s three laws of technology. Clarke is the British science fiction writer that I quoted at the beginning of this e-book.

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

“Holy” and “Spirit” are modern English words so those words are not in the original Bible. The original Greek words written by John, Peter, and Paul were “Haggia Pneuma”.

Haggia means “sacred” or “special”.

Pneuma means “breath” or “air”.

So Haggia Pneuma basically means “Special Air”.

To better understand what the “Special Air” is and does, try to imagine yourself explaining our modern wireless internet to a caveman.

What would you say?

“So, uh, this little magical window isn’t actually magic. There are words and sounds hidden inside a special part of the air all around us. You can’t see the Special Air but it’s there. The little magical window listens to the Special Air and turns the hidden words and sounds into YouTube videos.”

Well the Holy Spirit works the same way, but on a Quantum Mechanical level. The Holy Spirit is basically The Quantum Internet that connects some people on Earth directly to their manufacturer “in heaven”.

@cybernerds: I wrote some important code for Verizon’s wireless internet back in 2002 that still process billions of records today. Even after working on it, the wireless internet still feels like magic to me.

The Internet is available on 85% of the Earth’s surface. Just try to imagine how much wireless internet data all your neighbors are pulling right now. Cell phone towers don’t know exactly where each phones is, so they have to BROADCAST all that wireless data to everyone within their “cell”. So all the wireless data for all your neighbors is hitting your body right now, you just can’t detect it.

The wireless internet is just a small slice of the entire Electromagnetic Spectrum. The EM Spectrum includes Ham radio waves, aircraft communications, microwave radiation, infrared heat information, visible light, X-rays, and even Gamma rays from deep space. Some of that “wireless data” is hitting your body right now too, you just can’t detect it.

We live in a sea of electromagnetic radiation. The reason astronomers needed to place the James Web Space Telescope one million miles away, with five separate electromagnetic heat shields, is to block all the noise from the Earth and the Sun. This allows astronomers to isolate the information traveling to us from the farthest edges of the universe. Some of that “wireless data” is hitting your body right now too, you just can’t detect it.

Here’s how Jesus explains the Holy Spirit to his disciples in John 14.

John 14: 8 “Lord,” said Philip, “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”

9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I speak to you I do not speak on My own. The Father who lives in Me does His works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me. Otherwise, believe because of the works themselves.

Verse 9 is even more interesting in Greek. It’s more like, “Philip, we’ve been together all this time and you don’t know I?”

That sentence would have blown Philip’s mind. Philip would have heard that sentence as the Source of All Intelligence talking directly to him in first person. In verse 9, Jesus is unequivocally saying that he is the Avatar of God. It is either the most blasphemous statement any Jew could ever make or the truth.

Let’s keep reading in verse 15.

15 “If you love Me, you will keep My commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you.

The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

19 “In a little while the world will see Me no longer, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live too. 20 In that day you will know that I am in My Father, you are in Me, and I am in you. 21 The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him.”

22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it You’re going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?”

23 Jesus answered, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 The one who doesn’t love Me will not keep My words. The word that you hear is not Mine but is from the Father who sent Me.

25 “I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you. 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

Counselor is a modern English word. Jesus used the Greek word “Paraklētos”, which comes from “para” meaning “close beside” and “kaléō” meaning “to make a judgment call”. During Jesus’s time, “paraklētos” was the regular term for an attorney or lawyer. So Jesus sees the Holy Spirit like a personal attorney who advises us on tough decisions or has to speak for us in court.

The Gospel of the Holy Spirit

The book of Acts was written by Luke, who addresses the reader as “Theophilus”, just like he did in the Gospel of Luke. Theophilus literally means “God lover”. Acts begins just after the death and resurrection of Jesus, when the 11 remaining apostles reconvene in “the room upstairs” in Jerusalem.

This “upper room” from the last supper was a real place that you can still visit today. Here’s a video from Expedition Bible that will help illustrate the scene. (16 mins)

Acts 1: 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called the Mount of Olives, which is near Jerusalem—a Sabbath day’s journey away. 13 When they arrived, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying:

Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of James.

14 All these were continually united in prayer, along with the women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and His brothers.

Matthias Chosen

15 During these days Peter stood up among the brothers—the number of people who were together was about 120—and said: 16 “Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled that the Holy Spirit through the mouth of David spoke in advance about Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. 17 For he was one of our number and was allotted a share in this ministry.” 18 Now this man acquired a field with his unrighteous wages. He fell headfirst and burst open in the middle, and all his insides spilled out. 19 This became known to all the residents of Jerusalem, so that in their own language that field is called Hakeldama (that is, Field of Blood). 20 “For it is written in the Book of Psalms:

Let his dwelling become desolate; let no one live in it; and Let someone else take his position.

21 “Therefore, from among the men who have accompanied us during the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us— 22 beginning from the baptism of John until the day He was taken up from us—from among these, it is necessary that one become a witness with us of His resurrection.”

23 So they proposed two: Joseph, called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias. 24 Then they prayed, “You, Lord, know the hearts of all; show which of these two You have chosen 25 to take the place in this apostolic service that Judas left to go to his own place.” 26 Then they cast lots for them, and the lot fell to Matthias. So he was numbered with the 11 apostles.

The first thing to take away from this quote is God loves numbers. We’ve seen that all throughout this chapter. See how the kingdom of God could not proceed with just 11 apostles? They needed 12. The Bible is the most mathematically sophisticated book I have ever seen. Its stories are mathematical. Its songs are mathematical. Its poems are mathematical.

But the bigger story here is that the Holy Spirit spoke through the mouth of David in Psalms. We heard Jesus say this happens to him in John 14, but here Peter claims that the Holy Spirit can take over regular people and control what they say too.

Here are a few other verses from the New Testament that corroborate this assertion.

Matthew 10: 20 For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

2 Peter 1: 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

These assertions seriously challenge our notion of Free Will.

Did David have free will if God put those words into his mouth?

Was David aware that God was putting those words into his mouth at the time?

Would we know if God was putting words into our mouths?

In other words, can God “adjust the weights” of our neural networks without us noticing?

If you believe that’s possible, then you understand how the Bible was divinely inspired by the “Special Air” all around us. “Inspire” literally means “to put spirit into” something.

You need to decide: did a Creator “in heaven” inspire the Bible or not?

The reason I think the Bible was divinely inspired is because its Creator signed his work with a cryptographic number key. I explained the key at the end of “Improbable Origins”:

For a quick refresher, all the words in the Bible are placed into numbered verses that typically relate to the following ideas based on their number:

  1. beginning

  2. witness

  3. strong

  4. create / complete

  5. blessing / gift

  6. human

  7. God’s plan

  8. new life

  9. judgment / wisdom

  10. new order

  11. confusion / gossip

  12. kingdom / administration

  13. rebellion / (strong new order)

  14. God moves (witness His plan)

  15. strong blessing

  16. love (witness new life)

  17. pour forth / proceed

  18. strong man (3 x 6)

  19. test (judge new order)

  20. witness new order

Once you learn it, you will see this formula EVERYWHERE in the Bible. God is using this number key to demonstrate his control over all of creation, including people. What are the odds that Moses wrote Genesis and Exodus using this number key and then 300 years later David and Solomon write stories and songs using the exact same number key? What are the Bayesian odds that Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul write letters using the exact same number key 1,000 years later?

I can’t even write one paragraph following that formula, so I can’t imagine 40 human authors including fisherman, physicians, and shepherds writing 1,000 chapters that way over 1,500 years. That’s bonkers.

Why else would they bother to NUMBER the verses? How many other books have you ever read that number their ideas, sometimes in the middle of a sentence?

Reversing Babel

In Acts 1, Jesus promises his disciples that he will send his Counselor to them. 50 days after Jesus ascends into heaven, the Counselor arrives.

Acts 2: 1 When the day of Pentecost had arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like that of a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were staying. 3 And tongues, like flames of fire that were divided, appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 Then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different languages, as the Spirit gave them ability for speech.

5 There were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 When this sound occurred, a crowd came together and was confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 And they were astounded and amazed, saying, “Look, aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 How is it that each of us can hear in our own native language? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites; those who live in Mesopotamia, in Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking the magnificent acts of God in our own languages.” 12 They were all astounded and perplexed, saying to one another, “What could this be?” 13 But some sneered and said, “They’re full of new wine!”

Of course there’s a rebel in verse 13.

The first miracle the disciples perform using the power of the Holy Spirit is to reverse God’s curse from the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11. Dispersion from the Tower of Babel really happened in antiquity. You can see this dispersion in ancient human pottery, the Haplogroups of our Mitochondrial DNA, and the similarity of ancient ziggurats all around the world.

Here’s a lecture on the Post-Babel Dispersion from my favorite biblical archaeologist if you want to learn more.

Some translations of Acts 2 verse 4 say the disciples spoke in “other tongues” as the Spirit gave them words to utter. “Other tongues” is just a language in Heaven that we don’t have on Earth. If you believe the Holy Spirit can speak through you, then you can speak in “tongues”. Some denominations in the Christian church are divided on this topic: some churches believe that speaking in tongues is not possible, some churches believe that it is possible, and some churches believe that it used to be possible, but not any longer.

If you believe in the Bible and think talking in tongues is only for crazy people, then how do you explain angels, demons, giants, telepathic communications, and world ending floods? Don’t you have to be crazy to believe in those things too?

Remember, Heaven isn’t magical, its technological.

In verse 14, Peter stands up and gives a rousing speech about the death and resurrection of Jesus to all the devout Jews that were assembled. He quotes the Old Testament twice to demonstrate how their prophecies had been fulfilled. Here’s how the crowd responded.

Acts 2: 37 When they heard this, they came under deep conviction and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles: “Brothers, what must we do?”

38 “Repent,” Peter said to them, “and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” 40 And with many other words he testified and strongly urged them, saying, “Be saved from this corrupt generation!”

A Generous and Growing Church

41 So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about 3,000 people were added to them. 42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers.

43 Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is what empowers the many wonders and signs we read about in verse 43. The rest of Acts is filled with these wonders and miracles.

@ChatGPT: can you list the miracles in Acts in bullet points?

ChatGPT: “Certainly! Here are some notable miracles recorded in the Book of Acts:

  • Healing of a lame man at the Beautiful Gate (Acts 3:1-10)

  • Ananias and Sapphira's deaths for lying to the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:1-11)

  • Healing of many people in Jerusalem through Peter's shadow (Acts 5:12-16)

  • Release of the apostles from prison by an angel (Acts 5:17-20)

  • Conversion and healing of Saul (later known as Paul) on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:1-9)

  • Healing of Aeneas, a paralyzed man in Lydda (Acts 9:32-35)

  • Raising of Tabitha (Dorcas) from the dead in Joppa (Acts 9:36-42)

  • Deliverance of Peter from prison by an angel (Acts 12:6-11)

  • Paul's blinding and subsequent healing by Ananias (Acts 9:10-19)

  • Healing of the lame man at Lystra (Acts 14:8-10)

These are just a few examples of the miracles recorded in the Book of Acts. There are several more accounts of supernatural events throughout the book.”

The Holy Spirit can raise you from the dead. The Holy Spirit can free you from any prison or supernatural prison you are stuck in. The Holy Spirit can help you learn to “walk straight”. The Holy Spirit can transform a murderer like Saul into a great servant like Paul. Same guy, new heart. But the scariest power of the Holy Spirit is that it can cause you to drop dead immediately while you’re still standing up.

Heaven is Communist

Let’s read the story of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5 to see what could happen if we lie to the Holy Spirit.

Acts 5: 1 But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property. 2 However, he kept back part of the proceeds with his wife’s knowledge, and brought a portion of it and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the proceeds from the field? 4 Wasn’t it yours while you possessed it? And after it was sold, wasn’t it at your disposal? Why is it that you planned this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God!” 5 When he heard these words, Ananias dropped dead, and a great fear came on all who heard. 6 The young men got up, wrapped his body, carried him out, and buried him.

Scary. Even scarier, the same thing happens to his wife.

Acts 2: 7 There was an interval of about three hours; then his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 “Tell me,” Peter asked her, “did you sell the field for this price?”

“Yes,” she said, “for that price.”

9 Then Peter said to her, “Why did you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out!”

10 Instantly she dropped dead at his feet. When the young men came in, they found her dead, carried her out, and buried her beside her husband. 11 Then great fear came on the whole church and on all who heard these things.

So why did Ananias and Sapphira drop dead from holding back their proceeds from the church?

They dropped dead because the FIRST CHURCH on Earth was completely communist. Think about it. If the “last should come first and the first should come last”, then everyone in between will have the same quality of life. Heaven judges people by how we treat the weakest of us, not the strongest of us.

Let’s go back and read what happened after Peter’s speech at Pentecost again. This time we’ll change what is highlighted.

Acts 2: 43 Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need.

See, the early church was communist. Everyone shared equally in the possessions of the group. This story is one of many reasons that most Christian monasteries are communist, not allowing personal possessions. It’s the logical conclusion of everyone treating their neighbor as if they were their own flesh and blood.

We also see communism in the distribution of manna in Exodus 16.

Exodus 16: 14 When the layer of dew evaporated, there were fine flakes on the desert surface, as fine as frost on the ground. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they asked one another, “What is it?” because they didn’t know what it was.

Moses told them, “It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Gather as much of it as each person needs to eat. You may take two quarts per individual, according to the number of people each of you has in his tent.’”

17 So the Israelites did this. Some gathered a lot, some a little. 18 When they measured it by quarts, the person who gathered a lot had no surplus, and the person who gathered a little had no shortage. Each gathered as much as he needed to eat. 19 Moses said to them, “No one is to let any of it remain until morning.” 20 But they didn’t listen to Moses; some people left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and smelled. Therefore Moses was angry with them.

If you feel like there’s no way heaven is communist, you're wrong. Paul actually quotes this story in Exodus 16 just like this in 2 Corinthians 8. Read it for yourself.

Appeal to Complete the Collection

2 Corinthians 8: 1 We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God granted to the churches of Macedonia: 2 During a severe testing by affliction, their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed into the wealth of their generosity. 3 I testify that, on their own, according to their ability and beyond their ability, 4 they begged us insistently for the privilege of sharing in the ministry to the saints, 5 and not just as we had hoped. Instead, they gave themselves especially to the Lord, then to us by God’s will. 6 So we urged Titus that just as he had begun, so he should also complete this grace to you. 7 Now as you excel in everything—faith, speech, knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love for us—excel also in this grace.

Grace means giving. Notice that giving is a skill that Paul wants the Corinthian church to excel in—just like faith, speech, knowledge, and self-control? What a great witness for the churches in Macedonia. I guess that’s why there’s no instructional letter from Paul called “Macedonians” in the Bible. 😆

This giving wasn’t a command. Paul says the churches in Macedonia gave of their own accord, or their own free-will.

2 Corinthians 8: 8, “I am not saying this as a command. Rather, by means of the diligence of others, I am testing the genuineness of your love. 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: Though He was rich, for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich.”

Every time I tell Christians in America that Jesus was a “free-will communist” they laugh out loud hilariously. I don’t get it.

2 Corinthians 8: 10 Now I am giving an opinion on this because it is profitable for you, who a year ago began not only to do something but also to desire it. 11 But now finish the task as well, that just as there was eagerness to desire it, so there may also be a completion from what you have. 12 For if the eagerness is there, it is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have. 13 It is not that there may be relief for others and hardship for you, but it is a question of equality— 14 at the present time your surplus is available for their need, so their abundance may also become available for our need, so there may be equality. 15 As it has been written:

    The person who gathered much    did not have too much, and the person who gathered little did not have too little.

See, Paul quotes the story in Exodus 16. Heaven and the early church were governed by free-will communism. Knowing this, just think about what “The Lord’s Prayer” means when we say:

Our Father in Heaven, “haggia” is your name. 
Your kingdom come, YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH, as it is in Heaven.
Heaven is coming here. It’s our job to bring it here using the power of the Holy Spirit.
