Geocentricity

The following texts and sermons all deal with one subject matter: Geocentricity versus Heliocentricity.  Since the modern world has found fault with Geocentricity, we built a repository/an armory, here, in order to present it as a Biblical option to Heliocentricity. Almost all entries are copied materials—giving credit to the authors where it was possible.

Opening Thought by Jeffrey Mardis...

BOTH Geocentricity and Heliocentricity have validity. Heliocentricity places the Sun at the center of our universe, which obviously showcases it as type of the Son of God.  "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings."  (Malachi 4:2)  Geocentricity places the Earth at the center. The question then comes in, which of these concepts holds true when taken in regards to the actual construct of the universe?  I still cannot say with 100% accuracy, but I can say this:

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the LIGHT OF THE WORLD: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."  John 8:12 (also see John 9:5)

"That was the true Light, which LIGHTETH EVERY MAN that cometh into the world."  John 1:9

When speaking from a cosmological standpoint, there is only one "light" which "lighteth every man that cometh into the world", and that light IS "the light of the world,"  the Sun.  Biblically speaking, from MAN'S standpoint, it is the SON (Sun) which gives and sustains all life.  HE is the MOST IMPORTANT THING in the universe.  The construct of "Heliocentricity" could be a typology of this truth.

HOWEVER, from God's standpoint, the Scriptures clearly place the EARTH at the center of the universe.

1.) Earth is the first planet created by God. (Genesis 1:1)

2.) Earth is the ONLY planet named by God (Genesis 1:10)

3.) Earth is the only planet created to be inhabited. (Isaiah 45:18; Psalm 115:16)

4.) The sun, moon and stars were created to benefit the Earth ONLY. (Genesis 1:14-18)

5.) The Earth is destined to become the Headquarters of God's Eternal Kingdom. (Daniel 2:44; Revelation 21:2-3, et. al.)

When the Creator looks at the universe, WE (planet Earth) are its center.  God deals one-on-one with us, and us alone (Leviticus 20:26; Psalm 24:1).  The construct of "Geocentricity" could be a typology of this truth. But regardless, if Geocentricity is true from a literal structural standpoint, it is ALREADY true from an "importance" standpoint.
