The Stars Fought from Heaven

They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.

(Judges 5:20) KJV

Consider this for instance. If this passage from Judges is to be believed, and why wouldn’t we believe it since it’s in the Bible, the stars fought against Sisera. The stars really can’t do that if they’re distant suns and galaxies.

Sun and Moon

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

(Isaiah 66:23) KJV

The Millennial Kingdom will have a sun and moon, although the sun will be a dim glimmer compared to what it is now. The majority of the light in the Millennial Kingdom will be the glory of the Lord who now inhabits Jerusalem. Here Isaiah is speaking about the Millennial Kingdom.

Astronomy

Timothy, keep safe what has been entrusted to your care. Avoid the profane talk and foolish arguments of what some people wrongly call “Knowledge.” For some have claimed to possess it, and as a result they have lost the way of faith.

God’s grace be with you all.

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) Good News Translation

We like wry humor here at Matty’s Paradigm. A double-dose of irony with a side of snark. Here’s the definition of what you call Astronomy after it’s been filtered through the lens of Biblical cosmology.

Biblical Cosmology

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) KJV

Based on our first Principle, God Can’t Lie and the Bible is True, it must be possible to use the Bible to deduce an accurate model of the cosmos. We’re not talking about the Star Trek universe of the popular science paradigm (SciPop).

Earth is the Center of the Observable Universe

The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear.

(Habakkuk 3:11) KJV

Axiom III is “Earth is the Center of the Observable Universe.” We can deduce Principle I from the following physical evidence, empirical observations or established theories which are part of Axiom III.

Helical Helios

Earth-sun radial distance vs. the Sun's orbital radius.

Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

(Hosea 6:3) NIV

The sun orbits the Earth in a helical spiral. The sun is called Helios in Greek. Either the sun is called Helios because it has a helical orbit, or helices are called helices because they mimic the motion of the sun – Helios.

Matty’s Parallax

Principia Mattymatica – Corolary VIII

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

(Exodus 20:4) KJV

When we change our assumption from Heliocentric to Geocentrospheric it has an effect on the distance to stellar objects. This is because of the way that stellar parallax works.
