And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.(Revelation 22:5) KJV
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.(Revelation 20:10) KJV
How could there be no night in the new Jerusalem for ever and ever but, at the same time, day and night in the lake of fire for ever and ever? Physics and our unified theory of everything resolve this perfectly.
Let’s look at some nuance. We just found a Biblical inconsistency which we haven’t noticed anyone else talking about, but which is resolved if the lake of fire is Venus and if the center of gravity for the observable universe is the gravitational singularity at the center of the Earth.
New Jerusalem is a city which is full of light. It’s made from elements and compounds which don’t impede light and it’s illuminated by the glory of God. It’s at the center of gravity where time doesn’t pass at all.
The lake of fire is Venus. It’s rotating. From the lake of fire it will be possible to see the distant and receding new Jerusalem as if it’s a star in the sky. For the souls there that’ll be as much day as they get. When Venus rotates them away from the direction of new Jerusalem they’ll experience the total darkness of night.
Venus will be drifting off into outer darkness and getting further away from the center of gravity. This means that time will pass at an ever increasing rate. As such, the souls in the lake of fire will experience eternity as a continual stretching of time which will go on forever, with a day and night marked by the passage of one bright star across the sky. Meanwhile, in the new Jerusalem, time has stopped for ever.
We now have 6 data points for gravitational time dilation.
Gravitational Time Dilation Data Points
|Distance from Source||Location||Time Dilation|
|1||0||Center of earth||0|
|2||4,100 km||Sheol||1 day|
|3||6,371 km||Surface of earth||1,000 yrs|
|4||26,541 km||GPS Satellites||+38,640 ns/day|
|5||54,600,000 km||Mars||+40 mins/day|
|6||Unknown distance||The Firmament||1,000,000 yrs|
There’s a Biblical theory of time. That makes God a Time Lord.– Navigate below
Is eternity being bored out of our minds for ever and ever. Or is eternity where there’s no passage of time?
