A View of Our Solar System

A View of our Solar System

From pg. 42 in 12 Hours in Heaven
The Lord showed him how the seasons were made. The plane of the orbits of the planets in our solar system is at an angle of about a 45° degree angle to the perpendicular line pointing to the North Star. The North pole of the sun and the North pole of the Earth always point to the North star. [Fig. 2 & 4] 
This is how our seasons are made possible.  It shows what makes the days & nights longer & shorter for any given latitude on the Earth.  For instance, the Sun crosses at a lower horizonal arc across the sky in Winter than it does in Summer if you are in the southern part of the United States.  In the Summer the Sun is almost straight up above (zenith) at noon.

This is not drawn to scale.  The size of the Sun compared to Earth would present a problem getting it all on the page.  But the bulge of the Sun at it's equator is in closer proximity to our Earth's total circuit around the Sun.  

The solar system is at about a 45° angle around the Sun, i.e. the Earth orbits the Sun at about a 45° angle around the Sun. If you could see our Solar System with the planets all lined up around it from a distance of light years away presuming the Sun would still be seen as an orb and not a pinpoint of light, then you would see the relative sizes of all of them, all lined up like Fig. 2 above.

The wrong idea is being presented here (courtesy of weather.gov).  

In reality the polar axis is always straight up and down, perpendicular to the equator of the Sun and earth, but parallel to the Sun's polar axis.  Both of which point to the North Star.  The reason they arrive erroneously at 23.5 degrees is because the correct figure would be close to 45 degrees, twice the 23.5, due to the combined yearly total effect on the (straight up) earth's 45 degree angle (diagonal) procession around the Sun.  It actually moves higher and lower on the diagonal plane as it travels around the Sun, while it spins sitting straight up and down.  However, there is NO "TILT" WHATSOEVER as depicted by weather.gov.

The key is understanding that the two are both always spinning on a straight axis which points to the North Star.  The Biblical basis for this is found in 3 places.  Isa. 45:18, Jer. 51:15 and 1 Sam. 2:8. The word kun in Isa. 45:18 and Jer. 51:15 allows the meaning to be erect (i.e. stand perpendicular) where KJ "he hath established it".
