The Day Of Small Things

The verse that completely threw me earlier today was just the following:

Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth. (KJV)

Now, on the welcome page of this site I liken the Strong's entries for "Zerubbabel" (i.e. G2216 and H2216) to the verse Rev 22:16 which is as follows:

Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (KJV)

That stated, what is the link? (For there is one.) Now I hope that you will not take any offence at the comparison but there is a "thought experiment" in physics related to the concept of the "entropy" of a gas (the measure of disorder in the system) that employs an argument using one imagined "Maxwell's demon".

Maxwell's demon is an "agent" (a determinist) that stands between two compartments both filled with some gas. The demon organises the gas to a more ordered state by only permitting warm particles to pass through a small door under its control and the cold particles only the other way. (The hot particles move faster.)

In this manner the "entropy" of the system is measured by the amount of energy the "demon" expends whilst organising the particles in this curious manner, which appears to violate the second law of thermodynamics. The "effort" expended by the demon is always more than the order gained in the gas.

Now, these particles are indeed "very small things" and likewise, they are comparable to the work of the Holy Spirit which gathers together the hot to Christ's right and the cold to his left. The work of the angel, the "least in the kingdom" (arrayed as if those same seven spirits in circuit) is completed with the end of the circuit that he makes (a "pillar in the temple of God"), leading to the justification for the final judgment and the "manifestation of the Sons of God."

Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. (KJV)

In like manner, both the angel (least) and Spirit of God are "tidying up" whilst that angel and all others are himself (or themselves) the "small things" (agents) being those that gather or are organised (as right and left hands respectfully). Conversely, the Spirit of God can move all as if the seven Spirits of God were "small things running to and fro", in order to bring about the manifestation of His divine will.

So, a work thoroughly against the action of entropy is found the work of an incorruptible God (one who is able to preserve His word against the entropy and agency of corruptible man) with a purpose for His creation, to prepare it for the day of judgement, after the overcoming of His least.

2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (KJV)

As the end nears, God will become more and more active.

2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (KJV)

The end result is that God's Spirit as if "fire" becomes wholly deterministic with the arrival of His wrath, and against all physical laws the new name of God supersedes His old, and creation becomes made in the will of Omnipotent God, as justified by the least in the kingdom overcoming the world and the devil within it. The "Mystery of God" is then to be completed.

Not merely heaven, but the whole Earth will also come under the will of the Spirit of God, arriving on time at "Armageddon" for the judgement by Christ.
