God created the universe. He created a perfect place for prosperity and happiness with accountability.
God is time and freewill. When he created the universe, he shared himself (time and freewill) and he embedded randomness and life in his creation . Freewill and randomness made life more interesting and unpredictable.
When he shared his freewill, he simultaneously created souls-spirits (eternal) with freewill and other corporeal life forms with intrinsic freewill as well and he infused this new creation with the delicate ingredient of emotion. Freewill and emotion are two powerful forces in this universe which nourishes and destroys.
How God created the universe is the playground of theorists. What everybody seems to agree on is that there is Time, Randomness, Matter, Space, force, gravity and even dimensions. Then there are theories of the opposites and multiverse.
Most scientists seem to agree on the big bang theory and even in the recurring big bang theory. They theorize on the ever expanding and contracting universe and that the cycle of life and intelligence goes off and on.
The universe is an eternal creation of God. Not a multiverse or contracting or expanding universe. Just one infinitesimal universe. What has been observed by scientists as they see the expanding galaxies is simply the hour-glass effect. What scientist are observing is simply a minuscule portion of the universe that follows the effects of gravity.
All these clusters of galaxies as is currently being observed, is simply one "occurrence" which will finally succumb to gravity and will be sucked into this "black hole", the center of the hour-glass, and as gravity accelerates all these galaxies through this convergence, it then shoots out the opposite side with such force as to create a "big bang" effect.
There is no contraction and expansion of the universe (occurrence), gravity simply pulls all of its content (galaxies) and all it's forces on through to the other side. There is no end. It is simply a continuance in this one "occurrence".
Modern science call an occurrence the "universe". Our perception of the universe as we see it today, is but a single occurrence. Scientists have estimated this occurrence to be about 13.5 billion years old. How long before it goes on through to the other side? How many cycles has it been through already? There are countless "occurrences" all throughout the universe. These occurrences do not have a simultaneous behavior in their existence. One may be “emptying” while another may be “filling”. The "universe" that the scientists are talking and theorizing about is simply one of these countless occurrences within the infinitesimal UNIVERSE that God has created. The life of these occurrences continue to cycle over.
Each of these occurrences are separated by the vastness of space. This vast "emptiness" as science currently calls it, is not empty at all. This "emptiness" is what holds the universe together and it is entangled with the spirit domain where everything is connected and intertwined. The soul (conglomerate of thoughts) of the sentient being dwells in the spirit realm where it is not confined, restricted or limited by matter, space, gravity, or dimensions. Matter, Space, force, gravity and even dimensions are the perception of sentient beings in the corporeal world where energy is utilized to accomplish anything and everything. In the spirit world, none of these are essential. Will power and emotion are the two essential forces from God that allow the spirit world to be vibrant with life.
Within this universe God created a LIFE force, spiritual and corporeal and along with this came Free Will. Everything that God has created can be destroyed, only two things will remain unimpaired: Time and Freewill.
Time is the past and the future which hinges on the present. There are all kinds of theories out there about bending space and time but that's all they are, theories. Time is one with the universe. If you change the past in this room, you change the past in this area, this world, this solar system, this galaxy, this occurrence, and the universe. You can't change the past, but it can certainly be viewed with the power of the spirit world, everything is in the present. Neither can anyone visit the future. The future is simply variables of probabilities that hinge on randomness and free will within the present. The future out there in the galaxies where free will is not involved depends solely on randomness. The future is not "written in the stars". It is yet to come whether it depends on randomness or free will. A person can certainly predict the future for a specific personal act. Such as the act of swallowing water. Only one free will is involved here and that is his. As soon as more people are involved in a decision making, the future becomes vague. Now, when you combine this with randomness, it becomes almost an impossibility. However, with future quantum computations predicting the probabilities of occurrences, the future may be manageable but it can never be as dead set as the past. The Universe is perfect as God created it and the future certainly depends on randomness and the conglomeration of humanity's freedom of choice.
Free will is the gift from God. This is what helps make the unpredictability of the universe manageable. Freewill is what makes the universe fascinating
Randomness is inherent in the universe. Force and gravity partake in the randomness within the universe. Randomness is uncontrollable. Science will later make it manageable but never stoppable.
Religions write about prophecies (what is to come) or about the "End of times", "Armageddon", "Judgement day", "New beginning". Many believe them to be true. They believe in predestination, yet they also believe in "free will". Now this contradict each other. A prediction for one's action may come true unless deterred by randomness or the "freewill" of another. Since freewill is one of the 3 unchanging God-created factors in the universe, therefore there is no predestination. However, the enlightened (good or bad) spirit who can wield the energy of the corporeal and spirit world may reveal their intentions to sentient beings and make it so to be passed on down as "prophecy" or "revelation". Powerful they may be to cause their will to be materialized in the future, but it remains only as a possibility because the "free will" of another powerful spirit may interfere. Freewill and Randomness will forever be there to change things up.
Also there is no “OMNISCIENCE” (know everything including the future). God is attributed with absolute omniscience by all religions. God’s absolute power to do and create whatever he “wills” is confused with omniscience. There is no future to “see” but there is a future to be created. The will of God can plan (“predict”) that a galaxy will be created because he will make it so. The galaxy “was” not there in the future. It was not there to be seen. When God gave his sentient creation “Freewill”, he gave it without limitation. Freewill and randomness are the unknown factors. God can control and manage randomness but not the freewill of his creations. He can destroy “freewill” and take it all away from his creations, but God created perfection so he will not take “freewill” away. Without “freewill” there is no perfection.
