Revelation and Relativity: Black Holes, Time Dilation, and the Throne of God

The 4.1-million solar mass black hole at the center of our galaxy, closely surrounded by thousands of typical (25 – 40 solar mass) black holes, is “the great one,” Kolob, with “many great ones near unto it.” Recent scientific studies indicate black holes likely involve higher-dimensional portals leading out of our universe and into an alternate reality. It is this sense in which Kolob is “nearest to the throne of God.” In addition, terms and phrases such as “one planet above another,” “set time,” and “the order of that upon which thou standest,” all become clear in terms of relativity.
