There is One Glory of the Sun

There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:41) ESV

We can take the experimental confirmation of Einstein’s prediction of gravitational lensing to deduce that the sun is a source of gravity.

Circles of Life

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

(Psalms 19:1-6) ESV

If the Earth is at the center of the universe, and the Sun orbits the Earth, then these bodies are the two foci of elliptical planetary orbits required by Kepler’s laws.

Riding upon Heaven

There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

(Deuteronomy 33:26) KJV

It may seem sacrilegious to suggest that God rides on a cosmic surfboard, but it’s a conclusion which has been deduced. God and his agents may physically visit the Earth by riding on a piece of heaven.

Brightness Before Him and Darkness Under His Feet

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

(Psalms 18:9-12) KJV

He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet. He rode upon a cherub, and flew; And He was seen upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness canopies around Him, Dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. From the brightness before Him Coals of fire were kindled.

(2 Samuel 22:10-13) NKJV

If heaven, the firmament, is a sphere of rigid crystal then we can resolve several passages of scripture which describe heaven, or pieces of heaven, as literally rigid crystalline structures.

The Foundations of the Heavens

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

(Revelation 21:19-20) KJV

Understanding how the heavens were constructed allows us to interpret scripture and account for empirical observations of the cosmos, including 85% of the mass of the universe that popular science (SciPop) can’t find.

Black Sky

Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

(Psalms 97:2) KJV

In order for God to proceed on the fourth day: creating the sun moon and stars; the sky had to be made black. However, the firmament couldn’t lose its brightness, that would defeat the purpose of it.

Flat Earth isn’t Biblical

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

(Colossians 2:8) KJV

Any Biblically accurate model of Earth must have a spherical Earth is at the center of a spherical cosmos, and the cosmos is enclosed within a rigid sphere of layered crystal called the firmament.

The Foundations of the Heavens?

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

(Revelation 21:19-20) KJV

We don’t hammer square pegs into round holes to get the pieces of Matty’s Paradigm to fall into place. It’s deduced, not induced. This is another nail to hammer into the lid on the coffin of Flat Earth.

Black Sky?

Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

(Psalms 97:2) KJV

God covered the proof of his presence as part of the plan of redemption. God gave us free will so that believing in Him is a choice. If proof of God was in plain sight there is no free will.
