In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

(1 John 4:10) ESV

Propitiation is the price paid for our redemption. This was Jesus himself. He lived a sinless life and his sacrifice was sufficient to pay for the sins of the whole world.

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

(1 John 2:1-2) KJV

The lamb was slain at the foundation of the world to pay the price of our redemption. This is propitiation. However, you can’t redeem something if you already own it. The creation had to be lost before it could be found.

This connects us back to why was it dark in Genesis 1:2? When the Son was conceived as OH and became the watery matrix of the deep, OH + H+ = H2O, it was dark. This is the moment pictured by Christ calling out from the cross, why have you forsaken me? On the cross Jesus then gave up his spirit.

This darkness is what we have to be redeemed from. The phrase, necessary evil, becomes starkly poignant when we see that darkness and evil are necessary for our existence, even though our existence is the opportunity we’ve been given to choose between light or darkness, good or evil.

In the deep, the transformation of nucleosynthesis is about to begin. The deep is going to burst forth into light in order to create the world that we live in. The lamb was slain by the command let light be, and then he rose again.

Protons are light, neutrons are dark. This is why it is significant. In the beginning the deep was pure (void) it had to become impure in order to form the periodic table of elements of which the universe is made. This is where we make a significant departure from the prevailing narrative. The deep, God the Son, had to become corrupted in order to create the universe. This is where the rubber meets the road in grasping the meaning of the phrase he became sin for us.

  • IF Let light be, is the command that slayed the Lamb,
    • AND the creation of gravity is the key to his restoration,
  • IS gravity the propitiation that was paid for our redemption?

It’s an interesting question, but it can’t be the case. Jesus Christ himself is the propitiation. If gravity isn’t the propitiation, but is what Jesus Christ was sent to save us from, then gravity must be the law of sin and death.
