What’s with the zeroes and ones? It is binary code. The paragraph translated means, “Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised” (Psalm 145:3).

That’s our God!

Everything that your computer does – the programs, the videos, the music, even Pastor Grant’s Interruption this morning – is binary code. Zeroes and ones.

Obviously, writing programs in “ones and zeroes” would take a lifetime, so there are programming languages like Java. They have the gift of prophecy and interpretation, writing millions of “zeros and ones” in seconds, so that when Captain Jean-Luc Picard says on Star Trek, “Make it so”…

I can now type on my computer.

Before you get lost, and admittedly I am already, consider that all computers are just electronic switches called transistors – off and on – with the zero being “off” and the one being “on,” sending electrical signals by the millions enabling your e-mails and texts.

A guy named Tegmark thought, and people still believe, that everything is mathematical. That mathematics exists not in theory but actual physical existence. We, humans, are the Java language of the universe being able to interpret math into things like sight and sound and, unfortunately, disco music.

I failed algebra in high school. I found that the “zeroes and ones” circuitry in my brain was better used in social situations. I have never been accomplished in math so why do I think about binary code today?

When I considered complex programs being nothing but simple “ones and zeros,” I then began thinking of an unlimited God not confined by binary code – a God who can write in triple-code or billion-code.

Wow!

Software engineers don’t progress beyond binary-code, but God does trillion-code before His first cup of coffee in the morning.

On earth we have binary-code and in heaven, we will see sights and hear sounds in quadrillion-code – colors that cannot be realized now and sounds that can’t be played on synthesizers. Sit down, Mozart, and be amazed.

After visiting the third heaven the Apostle Paul wrote:

Or in English: heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak” (2 Corinthians 12:4)

For those who know Jesus on earth, in heaven we will experience time travel, have warp-speed Tesla cars, and live with quintillion-dimensional reality. Our three-dimensional earthly existence is just a warm-up from a great God.

God has eternity to reveal all His sextillion-code “zeroes and ones,” and in billions of years, we will comprehend just a fraction of it all. Our God is unlimited. All of us will be tech wizards in heaven.

Which means, “I will finally get an A in Algebra!”
