The Stars Will Fall to Earth
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.(Genesis 1:16) KJV
It’s ironic that April 1st is April Fools’ Day and that today we’ll begin making the case that the cosmos is Geocentrospheric, but this isn’t a joke. We’re going use the Bible to understand empirical observations.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.(Genesis 1:1-2) ESV
Gravity was created on the second day. Matter space and time existed before gravity was created. This has profound significance for theoretical Physics but we’re going to ignore that for now.

(celestial realm, cosmos, observable universe or space)
The stars fought from the sky;(Judges 5:20) Good News Translation
as they moved across the sky,
they fought against Sisera.
Most of the space between the firmament and Earth is the cosmos or observable universe. There’s something very odd about the cosmos: there’s a disconnect between what we can see vs. what we believe about it.

When he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,(Proverbs 8:27) ESV
The third clue that helps us to deduce the creation of gravity comes from a verse in Proverbs 8. It’s part of a passage which runs from verse 22-31 and is a synopsis of the account of creation.

And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. (Genesis 1:6-8) ESV
The second clue to deducing the creation of gravity is from Genesis 1:6-8. Now for the first time creation has an orientation. This theme continues throughout scripture. Under and above are synonyms for up and down.

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.(2 Corinthians 12:2) NKJV
Given that the apostle Paul specifically refers to something called the third heaven it’s not a stretch to conclude that there must also be a first and a second heaven. We need to know what they are.

This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.(Titus 3:8-9) NKJV
There’s a lot of contention among Christians. We think that our take on a doctrine is right, and anyone who doesn’t agree is wrong. It spills out into social media and it makes us all look bad.

When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: (Proverbs 8:27) KJV
They key to understanding the creation of gravity as the creative act of the second day is the synchronicity between “stretching out the heavens” and establishing “the foundations of the Earth.” One command did both.

And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”(2 Samuel 12:22-23) NKJV
In his grief over the loss of his first child with Bathsheba David says, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” It’s taken to mean that David will one day go to heaven to be with the child, whereas the child, in heaven, can’t return to the Earth.

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
The eternal torment referred to by the Bible doesn’t take place in hell, which is temporarily in the center of the Earth, there’s another location: a lake of fire and brimstone in outer darkness.
