The Second Heaven

(celestial realm, cosmos, observable universe or space)

The stars fought from the sky;
as they moved across the sky,
they fought against Sisera.

(Judges 5:20) Good News Translation

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.

The Last Trump is AFTER the First Six

The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

(Revelation 10:5-6) NKJV

There will be seven trumpets which initiate the plagues of the tribulation. Six of them will have sounded before the seventh and final trumpet sounds.

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.

Hypothesis 3

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

(Job 38:31-33) KJV

The image here was taken by Voyager 1 by aiming its cameras back towards the Earth and taking a series of pictures. It is called the Solar System Family Portrait. The sun is not large as seen from Voyager, only about one-fortieth of the diameter as seen from Earth.

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).

The Internal Structure of Earth and Size of the Cosmos is Unknowable

If one day the sky could be measured
and the foundations of the earth explored,
only then would he reject the people of Israel
because of all they have done.
The Lord has spoken.

(Jeremiah 31:37) Good News Translation

Axiom IV is “The Internal Structure of Earth and Size of the Cosmos is Unknowable.” We can deduce Principle I from the following physical evidence, empirical observations or established theories which are part of Axiom IV.

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.

The Space Narrative

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

The peer review driven popular science space narrative (SciPop) starts with the premise that the Bible is wrong and the Earth is billions of years old. It continues with the idea that stars are distant suns and galaxies.
