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.

Science is Faith

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

(Hebrews 11:1) ESV

When it’s impossible to measure absolute quantities, such as mass of the sun, then you use relative values: how much more massive is the sun than the Earth, for instance.

The Literature and Language of the Chaldeans

Then the king commanded Ashpenaz, his chief eunuch, to bring some of the people of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility, youths without blemish, of good appearance and skillful in all wisdom, endowed with knowledge, understanding learning, and competent to stand in the king’s palace, and to teach them the literature and language of the Chaldeans.

(Daniel 1:3-4) ESV

We’re going to use the phrase “the literature and language of the Chaldeans” as a euphemism for popular science (SciPop), a false narrative of godless existence.

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 Pit of Corruption

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back. For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

(Isaiah 38:17-18) KJV

The Bible has names for all of the physical features of the Earth which have to be part of a model of it’s internal structure. “The pit” and “the pit of corruption” are phrases the Bible uses to refer directly to the molten core of the Earth.

The Great Chasm

The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’

(Luke 16:22-26) ESV

The parable of the rich man and Lazarus is a description of the internal structure of the Earth that’s in conflict with current popular science theories (SciPop). We need to understand why.

Someone’s Own Interpretation

And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

(2 Peter 1:19-21) ESV

One of the things which allows Matty’s Paradigm to be consistent with the broad narrative of scripture is understanding that creation has a specific purpose. This purpose harmonizes physics with spirituality.
