We are told by the Mormons that we know that God’s throne is in a ‘star cluster’ containing many large stars, something which would create massive gravity and slow it down perhaps to where a day could equal a thousand years! Abraham 3:2 reads: ‘And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God: and there were many great ones which were near unto it.’ The name of the one nearest to God’s throne is Kolob. Abraham tells us that Kolob ‘govern[s] all those [worlds] which belong to the same order as that upon which [Abraham] standest.’ Kolob could be at the center of our galaxy. The gravitational pull created by this cluster of huge stars (along with gravity from dark matter) holds our galaxy together and keeps the outer rims (where we are) from flying off into the intergalactic space.”
This Book of Abraham was canonized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1880.
(This excerpt is taken right from my latest book, “Not Without God: Hope In the Storm.”
For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies” (2 Cor. 5:1-3).
