IS THE EARTH COVERED BY A DOME?


SPELLING EDITED

IS THE EARTH COVERED BY A DOME?


Here is a quote from a website that was sent to me by a dear brother in our Lord Jesus Christ that said he received permission from that website to use. That website teaches that the earth if FLAT and it is covered by a hard solid dome. The emphasis in this quote from a “flat earther” website is mine.


“...The Bible is, from Genesis to Revelation, a flat-earth book. ...While the Bible nowhere states categorically that the earth is flat, numerous Old Testament verses clearly show that the ancient Hebrews were flat-earthers. This comes through more clearly in modern translations such as the New English Bible, but it's clear enough in the King James Version. The Genesis creation story says the earth is covered by a vault (firmament) and that the celestial bodies move inside the vault. (See Genesis 1:6-8 and 1:17. Note that, even in KJV, while there are waters "above" the firmament, the celestial bodies are "in" it.) This makes no sense unless one assumes that the earth is essentially flat.”


Please notice that at least SOME “flat earther” Christians openly admit the NOWHERE in the Bible ITSELF does it point-blank categorically STATE as an undeniable FACT that the earth is flat. And that means that ALL the verses used by “flat earthers” to TRY and prove that the earth is flat MUST be INTERPRETED because NO verses in the entire Bible plainly STATE that the earth is flat.

Also, please notice the “flat earther” Christians say that the MODERN translations are better at showing more clearly that the earth is flat. So while they like the King James Version for other church doctrines they prefer the MODERN translations to teach their belief that the earth is flat.

Personally, it is of my own opinion that some of the modern translations have their own agendas. In other words, each modern translation has its OWN agenda. But all the agendas are the same, in that, each Bible translation seems to be BIASED toward some SPECIFIC teaching in order for each of those specific teachings to be seen more clearly from the way that THEY want you to interpret the Scriptures. And this flat earth teaching is no different. For you see, words have been changed in such a way that there is no other way to interpret at least ONE of those verses of Scriptures. BUT those changed words were based upon their own personal INTERPRETATION of the original Hebrew word and NOT on the TRUE meanings of those Hebrew words. You will see what I mean by this as you continue this study in God's word to see if the Bible ITSELF teaches that the earth has a dome covering it. Or if it is only certain modern translations pushing their own personal interpretation or more precisely their AGENDA on Christians. I say more precisely their AGENDA because I am seeing that it is the Illuminati that is behind the FLAT earth teaching. And here is just some evidence as to why I say this.

I want all my readers to CLOSELY consider the following questions? WHAT is the DECEPTION? Is the teaching that the earth is a GLOBE” the deception? OR is it the teaching that the earth is FLAT that is the deception” I want my readers to examine the FACTS real close so you can see which is the TRUE deception and WHO it is that to founded this deception that the earth is flat. Please closely consider what God led me to find while doing my OWN research on whether the earth is flat or whether the earth is a sphere. Here is a quote from another website called Art Sign Works Incorporated. I want you to read the quote first and then I want you to click on the LINK and go to that website and look at the LOGO emblem or SEAL of the UNITED NATIONS.

 

“On the right is shown a design for a carved wall plaque of the emblem/seal/crest for the United Nations (UN).”

 

Did you see that? It is the SAME picture of the FLAT earth that “flat earthers” use in their model of the flat earth. WHY would the UNITED NATIONS use this image of the FLAT earth as their SEAL, logo, and emblem? Now please read a quote from another website called Queens Museum and you will see WHY the United Nations uses the FLAT earth model as their SEAL. Again, please read the quote first and then click on the LINK and go to that website and view ANOTHER picture used by the UNITER NATIONS and you will see WHO is BEHIND the United Nations.

 

The People’s United Nations (pUN) is an event and exhibition by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes. The event takes place on November 23-24, 2013, and the exhibition runs from November 9, 2013-March 30, 2014. Pedro Reyes: The People’s United Nations (pUN) is a playful homage to the United Nations, inspired by the fact that the global body’s General Assembly met from 1946-1950 in the building that later became the Queens Museum...This experimental gathering will test Reyes’ hypothesis that, since diplomacy has not yet solved the world’s problems, conflict-resolution techniques proven in other fields should be tried instead...Welcome to the People’s United Nations (pUN), an exhibition and performance by Pedro Reyes!...pUN is made up of over 150 citizen-delegates from the 195 member and observer states of the (real) United Nations. They’re with us today to use popular theater and other techniques to grapple with real-world problems from a personal, playful perspective.”

 

Now click on the LINK and go to that website and view the PICTURE used by the UNITED NATIONS (pUN). Did you see the all-seeing EYE in the HAND that is behind the UNITED NATIONS? Most Christians know and understand that the image of the all-seeing eye is the logo and emblem of the Illuminati. So anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear can clearly see that it is the ILLUMINATI that is behind the DECEPTION of the FLAT earth and NOT some so-called deception of the earth being a SPHERE as the flat earthers CLAIM. Again, the Bible itself does NOT prophesy of the ONE world government that will be controlled by the antichrist.

If you are a conspiracy theorist then you most likely have learned from your research that the Illuminati hides the image of the all-seeing eye in the movies, videos, and books produced and published by them. In other words, you know and understand that the Illuminati deliberately leaks information to conspiracy theorists to tell their agenda because they have to do this. It is a part of their Luciferian belief system. And the all-seeing eye is their sign so to speak as being their evidence that they are sharing their agenda to the world. Here are some links to a few short videos showing how the Illuminati hides their symbol of the all-seeing eye right out in the open on movies poster and in the movies and television shows themselves. Each book, movie, video, and television show where you see the symbol of the all-seeing eye gives you a piece of the puzzle of the plan or agenda of the Illuminati. They WANT us to know but one their terms and timetable.

Movie posters with the all-seeing eye.

The whole truth by David Wilcox

ABOVE MAJESTIC


Now, I want you to notice the word VAULT. Do a word search in the King James Version with the words, VAULT, DOME, and ROOF or the earth. There are NOT any such verses in the King James Version that can even be responsibly interpreted as the earth having a solid hard VAULT of DOME covering it with the celestial bodies under it or INSIDE of it. They use Isaiah 40:22 that they interpret LITERALLY as God literally SITTING UPON the literal solid hard transparent VAULT of the earth.

Here is a link to the website called BibleStudyTools.com showing 35 different Bible translations and not ONE of them says VAULT, DOME, or ROOF of the earth In Isaiah 40:22. Most of the Bible translations say CIRCLE of the earth. The Message Bible says “God sits HIGH ABOVE the ROUND BALL of the earth.” The Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible says, “It is he who sits upon the GLOBE of the earth”. The Bible in Basic English says, “It is he who is seated OVER the ARCH of the earth.” And 25 out of these 35 translations say ABOVE, HIGH ABOVE, and that Gods sits on his throne HIGH ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth. And the translations that use the word ON and UPON always say on or upon the CIRCLE of the earth. Again, NO translation that I myself has found uses the word VAULT, DOME, or ROOF of the earth in Isaiah 40:22. So to me, that is MAN’S INTERPRETATION of the Hebrew word translated as CIRCLE in most translations but is also translated as a round ball, globe, and the arch of the earth.

Here is what E-Sword says this Hebrew word translated as CIRCLE in the King James Version says all the ways to its core root word from which it was derived. 


H2329

חוּג

chûg

khoog

From H2328; a circle: - circle, circuit, compassive

Total KJV occurrences: 3


This Hebrew word is only found in three verses. This verse here in Isaiah 40:22 translated as corcle. Then in Job 22:14, it is translated as CIRCUIT that God walks in up in Heaven. And in Proverbs, it is translated a COMPASS. Now, Jeremiah 31:22 uses the English word COMPASS that is translated from a different Hebrew word. But both Hebrew words mean COMPASS and one of the meanings of the word compass is to go around or to wrap around something. And Jeremiah 31:22 is a prophecy speaking of Jesus in the womb of a woman. It says that God will CREATE a NEW thing in the earth. And the angel Gabriel refers to Mary being pregnant with that Holy THING in her womb. So to me, Jeremiah is a PROPHECY describing a pregnant woman COMPASSING a man child in her womb which will become a warrior. And we all know that the womb of a woman goes ALL the way AROUND the fetus covering ALL sides of the baby both top and bottom, front, back and right and left sides. So to me, the CIRCLE of the earth is describing the earth as being a SPHERE with the expanse of the entire universe compassing around the entire earth like the WOMB of a woman compassing the child in her womb. And the third verses is speaking of the CIRCLE that God dwells upon calling it HIS circle. 

Now let us look at the Hebrew, Strong’s number From H2328 word FROM which this Hebrew H2329 word comes that we are searching for its TRUE meaning in Hebrew. Here is what E-Sword says.


H2328

חוּג

chûg

khoog

A primitive root (compare H2287); to describe a circle: - compassive

Total KJV occurrences: 1


Again, this Hebrew word H2328 that comes FROM the Hebrew word H2329 that is used in Isaiah 40:22 also means CIRCLE is found one time in the Bible in Job 26:10.


Let us read Job 26:10.

  

“He has COMPASSED the waters with bounds until the day and night come to an end.” 


I must do a study on Job 26:10 and add it to this series of studies. God has just shown me just some of the hidden prophecy in this passage of Scripture that only a paragraph or two would not give it justice. But for now, it appears that God inscribed a circle around the waters giving bounds. It does not say borders but rather it says bounds such as God commanding the seas to come so far on land and no further. I am seeing that this verse is speaking of the restoration of the earth after it became wasted by the war between God and Satan. But for now, we see that it is translated as COMPASS which we just saw in Jeremiah describes the womb of a woman COMPASSING a man child.

 Now let us look at the Hebrew word Strong’s number H2287 that the concordance says to COMPARE it to.


H2287

חָגַג

châgag

khaw-gag'

A primitive root (compare H2283, H2328); properly to MOVE in a circle, that is, (specifically) to march in a sacred procession, to observe a festival; by implication to be giddy: - celebrate, dance, (keep, hold) a (solemn) feast (holiday), reel to and fro.

Total KJV occurrences: 16


Now, “flat earthers” dogmatically demand that their flat earth does NOT MOVE let alone MOVE in a CIRCLE like the SPHERICAL earth. Let us compare with the Hebrew word, Strong’s number H2283.


H2283

חָגָא

châgâ'

khaw-gaw'

From an unused root meaning to REVOLVE (compare H2287); properly vertigo, that is, (figuratively) fear: - terror.

Total KJV occurrences: 1


So when we search out all the meanings of the Hebrew word translated as CIRCLE of the earth then we can clearly see that Isaiah 40:22 it is describing the SPHERICAL earth that turns or rotates in a circle as it REVOLVES in a CIRCLE or CIRCUIT around the sun.

But even despite all the SOUND Biblical evidence of the TRUE meaning of the Hebrew word “chug” and all its root words that prove the earth is a MOVING SPHERE ROTATING and REVOLVING around the sun, there will be a few flat earthers that will cling to their belief that the earth is flat. The will argues something like, “Well, what about Job 22:14 which says that God walks around ON the DOME of heaven?” 

And I say to that argument, “Not in the King James Bible!” I want to see what translation they are using that STATES that the earth has a DOME over it. So I went to BibleStudyTools.com  and I found that some of the MODERN translations do, indeed, use the English word DOME and vault. And of the 35 different Bible translations, 11 of those translations use the English word VAULT and 5 of those translations use the English word DOME. And the remaining 19 Bible translations agree with the King James Version to say God walks around in the CIRCUIT of heaven or on the CIRCLE of heaven.

Now, when we take a CLOSER look at Job 22:14 it says that the thick clouds are wrapped AROUND God and NOT wrapped around the earth. And then it goes on to say that God walks on the CIRCLE OF HEAVEN and NOT ON the circle of the EARTH. So that tells me that God lives on a DIFFERENT planet that is SURROUNDED by CLOUDS that is ABOVE the earth.


Here is what the Revised Standard Bible says in Job 22:14.


Thick clouds ENWRAP HIM so that he does not see, and he walks on the VAULT of HEAVEN.


Here is the NEW Revised Standard of Job 22:14.


“Thick clouds ENWRAP HIM so that he does not see, and he walks on the DOME of HEAVEN.”


Also, did you notice how the NEWER translation of the SAME Bible PROGRESSED from the English word VAULT which can be interpreted as an ARCH like a pole VAULTER jumping in an ARCH? And like the sun appears to be traveling in an ARCH over the earth to rise and set. So they CHANGED the word vault to the word DOME because that way there is really no other way to interpret Job 22:14 to THEM form THEIE newer translation. They did this because they want to influence you to believe what THEY believe. But yet, they have NO Scriptural authority to do that because NONE of the meanings of the Hebrew word mean a DOME.

Whosoever was behind this translation of the Bible wants Christians to believe that God WALKS ON the DOME over the earth. But this verse says the dome OF HEAVEN and NOT the dome of the earth. Now, the King James Version says that God walks in the CIRCUIT of HEAVEN. And the Hebrew word that is translated as “CIRCUIT” has no DIRECT meaning of a solid hard transparent literal VAULT covering the earth. So then, the English word “VAULT”  could easily be interpreted as the ARCH of the sky in the day and the ARCH of heaven at night. This Hebrew word means CIRCLE, CIRCUIT, and compassive, according to E-Sword. Since we just covered what E-Sword says this Hebrew word means here is what BlueLetterBible says.


  1. circle, circuit, compass

  2. (BDB) vault (of the heavens)


Here we do see the word VAULT but again it says the vault of the heavens which simply means the ARCH of the heavens that we see when we look up at the sky is both day and night. In other words, when we look up into heaven we do NOT see angles like the ceiling of a building. And neither do we see a FLAT two dimensional plain. But rather we see the appearance of a dome-like ARCH of the heavens which is three dimensional and has depth.

Now, “flat earthers” interpret Genesis 1: as God setting the sun and the moon UNDER or INSIDE a so-called hard solid transparent DOME coving the earth. But yet some “flat earthers” also argue that it is IMPOSSIBLE for man to go to the moon. Now to me. IS SO BE that God set the sun and the moon at the HEIGHT of the CLOUDS inside some hard solid dome cover the earth then all we need to do is to fly to the moon in an airplane. If we can land a plane on the short runway of an aircraft carrier then we should be able to land a plan on the moon. At the very least we should be able to see the moon up close in an airplane.

The word “FIRMAMENT” means heaven or the heavens which INCLUDE both the atmosphere AND the higher expanse we call space or Outerspace. The word simply means the ARCH of the SKY in both day and night. Here is what E-Sword has to say.


H7549

רָקִיעַ

râqı̂ya‛

raw-kee'-ah

From H7554; properly an expanse, that is, the firmament or (apparently) visible ARCH of the sky: - firmament.


I agree that one can INTERPRET the circle of the earth as a FLAT circle. But that INTERPRETATION that the earth is a flat circle MUST AGREE with the WHOLE word of Almighty God. But the “flat earthers” interpretation of the earth being the flat disc-shaped earth CONTRADICTS Deuteronomy 4:19 what God says that he DIVIDED the sun, moon, and STARS unto all nations under the WHOLE heaven. 


Deuteronomy 4:19.  


“And lest you lift up your eyes unto heaven, and when you see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even ALL the host of heaven, should be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD you God has DIVIDED unto ALL nations under the WHOLE heaven.” 


Now, this verse of Scripture clearly teaches us that the FIRMAMENT covers the SPHERICAL earth because the CONSTELLATIONS in heaven are DIVIDED or SEPARATED between the nations in the northern hemiSPHERE and the nations in the southern hemiSPHERE. In other words, our real genuine SPHERICAL earth there are DIFFERENT constellations that are seen in the northern hemisphere that can NOT be seen from the southern hemisphere. But IF SO BE the earth was flat the constellations would NOT be DIVIDED between the nations in the northern hemisphere and the nations in the southern hemisphere. To say this another way ALL nations of the so-called FLAT earth could see ALL the stars in heaven each and every star that is VISIBLE to another nation on the earth.

BUT, according to “flat earthers”, the NORTH is in the CENTER of the flat disc-shaped earth. Now that means one of THREE possible things for the direction of the south on the FLAT earth model. Number one, either there is NO SOUTH which would then mean that there would be no direction of the south ON the earth. And that would contradict the Bible and the real genuine earth. Number two, the direction of the south is UNDER the flat earth which also would then mean that there would be no direction of the south ON the earth. And that would contradict the Bible and the real genuine earth. Or the direction of the south on the flat earth model is EVERY DIRECTION from the CENTER of the flat disc-shaped earth.  So then, according to the model of the flat earth, the NORTH star should NEVER DROP down toward the horizon. And the NORTH star would ALWAYS be able to be seen ANYWHERE on the FLAT earth no matter how far south you travel. 


But that is NOT what happens on the REAL GENUINE SPHERICAL earth.


Also, the stars in the Northern HemiSPHERE rotate around the NORTH star in the COUNTER-CLOCKWISE direction. Here is another quote from the same website EARTH SKY.

The Big Dipper, like a great big hour hand, goes full circle around Polaris in one day. More specifically, the Big Dipper circles Polaris in a counter-clockwise direction in 23 hours and 56 minutes. Although the Big Dipper travels around Polaris all night long, the Big Dipper pointer stars always point to Polaris on any day of the year, and at any time of the night. Polaris marks the center of Nature’s grandest celestial clock!

By the way, Polaris is famous for more reasons than one. It’s famous for hardly moving while the other stars wheel around it. And it’s famous for marking the end of the Little Dipper‘s handle. The Little Dipper is tougher to spot in the night sky than the Big Dipper. But if you use the Big Dipper’s pointer stars to locate Polaris, you’ll be one step closer to seeing the Little Dipper.


Here are links to two videos very short vides on YouTube just 2 minutes long showing of the stars rotating from different cardinal points on EACH of the hemispheres of the earth. And as you can plainly see, the DIFFERENT stars in each hemisphere rotate in the OPPOSITE direction. And that would be IMPOSSIBLE is the earth was flat. Please take less than five minutes to watch BOTH videos.


MOVING STARS OF THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE

MOVING STARS OF THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE


Now again, on the flat earth model, the stars would ALWAYS rotate in the SAME direction no matter WHERE you are on the earth. So the rotation of the STARS rotating in OPPOSITE directions from one hemisphere to the next hemisphere proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that the earth is a SPHERE just like the Bible ITSELF teaches us when you CORRECTLY interpret the Scriptures.

So then, is NASA and SCIENCE the ones that are lying and DECEIVING Christians? OR is it the Illuminati, the hand behind the UNITED NATIONS pushing for a ONE world government that is NOT prophesied in the Bible. In other words, is the Illuminati responsible for reviving the ancient teaching of the FLAT earth in order o DECEIVE and DIVIDE Christians? Please visit these two websites so you can see with your own eye that the EMBLEM and SEAL of the United Nations in the same image the “flat earthers” use. And after you have clicked on both links to see for yourself that the Illuminati is the hand behind the United Nations then we will continue covering the rest of the verses use to try and prove that the earth is flat.

I want all my readers to CLOSELY consider the following questions? WHAT is the DECEPTION? Is the teaching that the earth is SPHERE” the deceptions? OR is it the teaching that the earth is FLAT that is the deception” I want my readers to examine the FACTS real close so you can see which is the TRUE deception and WHO it is that to founded this deception. Please closely consider what God led me to find while doing my OWN research on whether the earth is flat or whether the earth is a sphere. Here is a quote from another website called Art Sign Works Incorporated. I want to read the quote first and then I want you to click on the LINK and go to that website and look at the LOGO emblem SEAL of the UNITED NATIONS.


“On the right is shown a design for a carved wall plaque of the emblem/seal/crest for the United Nations (UN).”


Did you see that? It is the SAME picture of the FLAT earth that “flat earthers” use in their model of the flat earth. WHY would the UNITED NATIONS use this image of the FLAT earth as their SEAL, logo, and emblem? Now please read a quote from another website called Queens Museum and you will see WHY the United Nations uses the FLAT earth model as their SEAL. Again, please read the quote first and then click on the LINK and go to that website and view ANOTHER picture used by the UNITER NATIONS and you will see WHO is BEHIND the United Nations.


The People’s United Nations (pUN) is an event and exhibition by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes. The event takes place on November 23-24, 2013, and the exhibition runs from November 9, 2013-March 30, 2014. Pedro Reyes: The People’s United Nations (pUN) is a playful homage to the United Nations, inspired by the fact that the global body’s General Assembly met from 1946-1950 in the building that later became the Queens Museum...This experimental gathering will test Reyes’ hypothesis that, since diplomacy has not yet solved the world’s problems, conflict-resolution techniques proven in other fields should be tried instead...Welcome to the People’s United Nations (pUN), an exhibition and performance by Pedro Reyes!...pUN is made up of over 150 citizen-delegates from the 195 member and observer states of the (real) United Nations. They’re with us today to use popular theater and other techniques to grapple with real-world problems from a personal, playful perspective.”


Now please click on the LINK and go to that website and view the PICTURE used by the UNITED NATIONS (pUN). Did you see the all-seeing EYE in the HAND that is behind the UNITED NATIONS? Most Christians know and understand that the image of the all-seeing eye is the logo and emblem of the Illuminati. So anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear can clearly see that it is the ILLUMINATI that is behind the DECEPTION of the FLAT earth and NOT some so-called deception of the earth being a SPHERE as the flat earthers CLAIM.

There is much more SOUND Biblical evidence that to me, absolutely proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that the earth is a SPHERE that ROTATES and MOVED in a course around the sun that God ORDAINED.

But yet the “flat earther” Christians argue that the earth does NOT MOVE and the whole universe revolves around the earth. In other words, Geocentric Christians and “flat earth” Christians sincerely believe that the earth is in the CENTER of the entire universe and not in some obscure insignificant corner of a vast universe LOST in space as some scientists claim. Please understand that not ALL geocentric Christians are flat earth believers. But all “flat earther” are indeed geocentric in their belief. They HAVE to be because they believe that the earth does NOT move and everything in heaven revolves around their FLAT earth. And here is a list of Scriptures that they quote out of their context. I will quote them the way that I copied them from a “flat earth” website and then I will explain the TRUE SOUND Biblical meaning in the study called “GEOCENTRISM VERSUS HELIOCENTRISM!” The prefix “geo” simply means the earth and centric means around the center. So geocentric means around the earth. And Heliocentric means around the sun. So does the sun move around the earth like “flat earthers” sincerely believe? Or does the earth rotate on its axis and revolve around the sun as heliocentrism teaches?

Here are the verses used by “flat earthers” to argue that the earth does NOT MOVE. And thus, to THEM. the sun must revolve around the earth. All geocentrism believers use these following verses as their proof that the earth is STATIONARY.


1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”

Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm ...”

Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable ...”

Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”

Isaiah 45:18: “...who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast...”


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you CONTINUE to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. To read the TRUE SOUND Biblical meanings of the above five verse being LEFT IN their CONTEXT please click on the study called “GEOCENTRISM VERSES HELIOCENTRISM!” And if you have not already done so please read the five-part series of studies called “IS THE EARTH FLAT?” And in you have read the five-part series I have added some more studies on this subject that you can find under the heading >>>DOES THE BIBLE TEACH THE EARTH IS FLAT?<<<


Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
