IS THE EARTH SITTING ON A FOUNDATION?

SPELLING EDITED


IS THE EARTH SITTING ON A FOUNDATION?


The Bible has a lot to say about the foundation of the EARTH and the foundation of the WORLD. And to understand what these verses TRULY mean in the light of the WHOLE word of Almighty God then we need to understand that the WORLD is NOT the EARTH and the earth is NOT the world. The earth is the “planet” and the world is the government over the inhabitants who dwell on the earth. In other words, the world speaking of PEOPLE who dwell on the earth and the earth speaks of the planet itself. 

Now some verses interchange these words and thus we can miss the true meaning of those verses that have incorrectly been translated. And at other times the translator uses the English word earth when in truth, the CONTEXT is speaking about the LAND or a certain region of the earth. One such verse comes to my mind right now so I will use that verse to show you what I mean by the translators incorrectly using the wrong meaning of a Hebrew or Greek word that HIDES the true meaning of the verse of Scripture.

Please read Revelation 13:8.


“And ALL that dwell upon the EARTH shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”


If you read this verse as it is TRANSLATED then you must then conclude that every single person EXCEPT for the FAITHFUL Christians will take the MARK of the beast. And that would mean that NOT one single person will be saved DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus because all who take the mark of the beast will be cast into the lake of fire.


Please read Revelation 14:9-11.


“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand

10.  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 

11.  And the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever: (Meaning for an AGE or TO an age. Or BOTH for and age and TO an age as you will see in the next comment) and they have no rest day nor night, (meaning that those who will be SLAIN and thus will be judged UNWORTHY to receive eternal life AT the second coming of Jesus will have no rest or no hope in the grave during the DAY, speaking of the 1000 year LONG Day of the Millennial reign of Jesus. In other words, day and night DURING the 1000 year AGE the wicked dead have no rest knowing their fate of the lake of fire) who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name.”


So, clearly, the translators have made an error and they should have translated this Greek word as the LAND instead of as the earth. In other words,  this passage of Scripture should be understood that ALL those who dwell in the LAND where the antichrist will do miracles before THEM in THEIR LAND will receive the mark of the beast EXCEPT for the faithful Christians who will either be beheaded or made to FLEE from that LAND or region of the world in the Middle East. Obviously, people can and will be converted to Islam all over the earth in small numbers. But in the LAND in the Middle East that is CONTROLLED by Muslims, the people will have NO CHOICE in the matter. They will either have to convert to ISLAM, be killed, or FLEE from their LAND. And faithful Christians will NEVER convert to Islam and that is WHY Jesus warns Christians and the Jew to FLEE the LAND of Judea and the surrounding countries in the Middle East. People cannot flee the WHOLE earth.

Now, the reason that I am writing this study on the FOUNDATION of the EARTH in this series of studies to answer the question “IS THE EARTH FLAT?” is that the “flat earthers” argue that the SPHERICAL earth does NOT have any FOUNDATION. And, therefore, to THEM, this proves that the earth must be FLAT. In other words, in the eyes of the Christians who believe in the FLAT earth, they sincerely believe that ONLY the FLAT earth is able to have a FOUNDATION. They show in SOME of their drawings and models of their flat earth where the flat disc-shaped earth is sitting on a FOUNDATION. Sometimes their flat earth is sitting on PILLARS and I have already covered all those verses in part three called “WHAT ARE THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH?” So why bother to go deeper into God’s word on this subject of the earth sitting on a FOUNDATION?

You see, even though the Scriptures prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the earth is NOT flat and it does NOT sit on PILLARS, there are some “flat earthers” who will keep on clinging to their flat earth belief until they can see for themselves directly from the word of Almighty God that EVERY verse that they have interpreted to mean that the earth is flat does NOT mean what they have sincerely been taught to believe. In other words, they say will same something like, “Well, now that I can see that the flat earth does not sit on PILLARS I am still not convinced that the earth is a sphere. Just because the flat earth is NOT sitting of PILLARS that does NOT mean that the flat earth does NOT sit on some other kind of FOUNDATION.”

Now for ME, when I found out that preachers were using verses out of context to teach a church doctrine and the TRUE meaning of those verses were revealed to me, then a RED FLAG went up. And by the term red flag I mean I immediately saw that something was not quite right with the doctrine. So I began to closely examine ALL these verses that were being used to teach that doctrine. And more and more verses were clearly seen to be INCORRECTLY interpreted. But for some reason, there are some Christians who will cling to false doctrine all the way to the LAST verse of Scripture used to teach that false doctrine.

When I first started this study I will admit that I had my doubts that it was sound Biblical teaching. And when I opened my heart to not be biased I was taken back by a few verses and began to wonder if “flat earthers” are right. But when I took my eyes OFF the teachings of “flat earthers” and FOCUSED on the Scriptures then I quickly began to see error after error that “flat earthers” have made in their INTERPRETATION of the Scriptures. Now I have the SAME faith in the Bible that “flat earth Christians” have, meaning that I do not care HOW much evidence that the world brings against what the Bible teaches, I will NEVER choose what the world teaches OVER what I KNOW that the Bible teaches.

Now here is the thing. I was taught early on in my Christians faith that God created the earth around six thousand years ago. But then I began seeing all the EVIDENCE of the extremely OLD earth. So rather than ignoring all the evidence or trying to explain all the evidence away, I went to the Bible for myself to see if I was taught CORRECTLY about the EARTH being created 6000 years ago. And I found SOUND Biblical evidence for the much older earth. Now, I still believe that God created HUMANS around 6000 years ago but that does not mean that God created the EARTH 6000 years ago.

I said all of that to say that during that study in God’s word, I learned that the creation account in Genesis is NOT referring to the ORIGINAL creation of all things. But rather, the Genesis account is to RESTORATION of the earth that became empty and chaotic during the WAR between Lucifer and God. Now, I am not even going to try to explain this truth to you is this particular study because I already have several studies on this subject. One study to get you started is called “WHAT DOES THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD MEAN?” Once you understand that God is REPLACING Lucifer as the god of this world with his firstborn Son, Jesus as the God of the whole earth in the world to come then the whole Bible will open up to you.

So in this study, I want you to renew your mind to the word of Almighty God to understand that the FOUNDATION of the earth means that God DECREED what will happen BEFORE he even started to RESTORE the earth and created a new species of beings to dwell on the earth called the HUMANS. Understanding this truth will answer all the questions about the physical EVIDENCE on the earth that the world used to try and prove evolution. Yes, there were previous creations of “humanoids” that dwelt on the earth BEFORE the HUMAN race was created. But just because there are BONES of humanoids on the earth that does NOT mean that humans EVOLVED from those previous humanoids.

With that being said, let us dig into the Scriptures to show you that the FOUNDATION of the earth means that God SCRIBED the LAWS of how everything would work. The TRUE foundation of any house or any other building project is to first PLAN out what you are going to build. You can do it all in your mind or you can sit down and draw blueprints. But the FOUNDATION of every project is the PLANNING of what the project will be in the END. God calls the END from the BEGINNING.


Please read Isaiah 46:10.  


Declaring the END FROM the BEGINNING, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”


Now let us look at a passage of Scripture that “flat earthers” use to try and prove that the earth has a LITERAL STRUCTURAL FOUNDATION that the earth SETS upon and is fastened securely to that solid firm physical foundation.


Please read Job 38:3-7.


“Gird up now your loins like a man; for I will demand of you, and you will answer me. 

4.  Where were you when I laid the foundations (H3245) of the earth? Declare, if you have understanding. (The Hebrew word “yasad” that is translated as “foundation” means, to sit down together to consult and to settle. It means to APPOINT, to ORDAIN. to instruct, to found and foundation)

5.  Who has laid (H7760) the measures thereof, if you know? (The Hebrew word that is translated as “laid” also means to APPOINT, to CALL a name, and to ORDAIN. Keep in mind that everything God creates He CALLS and SPEAKS into existence) Or who has stretched the line upon it? (or who PROLONGED the  LEGHTH of the RULE upon it?)

6.  Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? (This literally reads whereupon are the SOCKETS fastened. Now to me, a man-made model of a GLOBE has its SOCKETS fastened to a bar at the north and south poles with the curved bar mounted to a base so that the globe can rotate without wobbling. And when we compare Scripture with Scripture where God HANGS the earth upon NOTHING then we can see that God is saying, “What STRENGTH or what force is HOLDING the earth on its course rotating around the sun? For you see, the core meaning of this Hebrew word means STRENGTH) Or who laid (Or who INSTRUCTED) the corner stone thereof; (Another hidden prophecy of Jesus being the cornerstone. It literally reads who DIRECTED the cornerstone. This agrees perfectly with Almighty God putting his words in the mouth of the Son of man, Jesus. God directed every move of Jesus. So WHEN did Almighty God FOUND the earth. The answer is in the next verse)

7.  WHEN the morning stars sang (Or TRIUMPHED) together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy (Or when whosoever of the sons of God DESTROYED. You see, the Hebrew words translation shouted for joy also means DESTROY. In other words, the good faithful angels triumphed over the fallen angels that set themselves to destroy, as in, to conquer God's throne)? 


The morning stars are the good angels who together TRIUMPHED over Lucifer when he rebelled against God. And the sons of God are the FALLEN angels that joined Lucifer in his rebellion to make war with God. And that is WHEN God ORDAINED the way that he desired to RESTORE the earth, DETHRONE Lucifer, and SET a NEW CORNERSTONE to REPLACE Lucifer as the ruler of the earth.

When Christians read the verses that speak of the FOUNDATION of the world, then they usually think of the English word “FOUNDATION” as meaning only two things. Some Christians assume it means a LITERAL structural foundation. And other Christians assume it means the VERY BEGINNING of the ORIGINAL creation of the world. In other words, Christians have interpreted Jesus being slain FROM the FOUNDATION of the world as meaning from the VERY beginning of the ORIGINAL creation of the world. And when you try to explain that the creation account in Genesis is God RESTORING the earth that BECAME void then some Christians turn a deaf ear to you. I pray that my readers trust what I teach enough to at least read the study WHAT DOES THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD MEAN?” But for now, just consider Job 38:7 which says WHEN the angels sang for joy as being WHEN the FOUNDATION of the earth was laid. And that would mean that God created the angels BEFORE the earth was ever created in the BEGINNING.

So then, for now, at least you can see that the meaning of the word foundation also has the meaning of TIME. This is not the only meaning of foundation. It does indeed mean a literal foundation that a building sits upon when men are doing the laying of the foundation. However, when God is going the laying of the foundation of the earth the meaning of the word is God ORDAINING the OUTCOME of the earth including the inhabitants of the earth. God is ESTABLISHING the earth declaring or prophesying the END from the BEGINNING, as in, the FOUNDING of the RESTORED earth. Go and REPLENISH the earth that BECAME empty of the inhabitants of the age before the human race was created.


Psalm 102:25,26.


“Of old have you laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. (ALL these words that I emphasized are translated from ONE Hebrew word. In other words, the translators ADDED words so this verse would read to their understanding. I am going to remove those added words and use just ONE of the meanings of that Hebrew word. I will also replace the word “work” and your “hands” with other meanings of those Hebrew words as well)

26.  They shall perish, but you shall endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shall you change them, and they shall be changed:” 


Psalm 102:25,26.


“Of old have you ORDAINED the earth: and the heavens are the ACTIONS of your POWER. (Or they are the ACTIONS of your ORDAINED DIRECTIONS God declares the END from the BEGINNING. God PROPHESIES everything into existence So the FOUNDATION of the earth by God means that God is the DESIGNER and thus the foundation is the BLUEPRINT in the mind of God that he PRORESIED out from his mouth)

26.  They shall perish, but you shall endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shall you change them, and they shall be changed:” 


Now let us read a verse that I already covered in part two IS THE EARTH A SPHERE CALLED THE GLOBE?” but I did not cover the Hebrew word translated as SET. I said that I would cover it later in part four and that later is right now. Let us read that verse again.


Proverbs 8:27.


“When He (Almighty God the Father) PREPARED (Or when He APPOINTED) the heavens, I was there: (Or I was there in his PLANS to be his firstborn EXALTED Son to sit at his right hand on his throne) when He SET (Or when He DECREED) a COMPASS upon the face of the depth:” 


The Hebrew word translated as SET also means That Yahweh ENACTED the LAWS as laws are set in stone. To ME, this means that Almighty God SET in MOTION the FULFILLING of his DECREES that he SPOKE that cannot be CHANGED. In other words, what Yahweh PROPHESIED will, without fail, come to pass just as he DECREED, APOINTTED and ORDAINED. Here are some other meanings of this Hebrew word. 

The word “SET” means to hack, to engrave, to be a scribe. Please notice that I emphasized the meaning to be a SCRIBE. I believe that Proverbs 8:27 also has some HIDDEN meanings that AGREE with what I myself am seeing as the TRUE meaning of the earth being a sphere. We will cover these other more hidden meanings after taking a closer look at a more obvious meaning. Here is how E-Sword defines this Hebrew word translated as SET.

 

H2710

 

חָקַק

 

châqaq

 

khaw-kak'

 

A primitive root; properly to hack, that is, engrave (Jdg_5:14, to be a scribe simply); by implication to enact (laws being cut in stone or metal tablets in primitive times) or (generally) prescribe: - appoint, decree, governor, grave, lawgiver, note, pourtray, print, set.

 

All of these highlighted meanings of this Hebrew word AGREE with God creating the earth by SPEAKING it into existence. And when you understand that the Genesis account is the RESTORING of the earth that BECAME void for the very reason of JUDGING Lucifer and the fallen angels then you can see that Jesus is the FOUNDATION stone that will REPLACE Lucifer AT the second coming of Jesus when Lucifer or Satan will be DETHRONED as the god of this present world as the ruler of the DARKNESS and bound for 1000 years in the bottomless pit.

Let us go back and take a closers look at other Hebrew words in Proverbs 27: We just saw that the word “SET” also means ORDAIN which means to set in motion by God declaring the END or the OUTCOME of the earth and its inhabitants from the beginning. I already covered these other meanings in part two “IS THE EARTH A SPHERE CALLED THE GLOBE?”But it never hurts to hear the truth again.

The next word “COMPASS” means a CIRCLE, a circuit, and compassive. And the ROOT word means to DESCRIBE something AS being a CIRCLE. Also, this word means to GO AROUND. It is used to describe a pregnant woman COMPASSING a child on ALL sides, top, bottom and completely around the fetus in the WOMB of a woman. In other words, we know that the infant is completely surrounded by the womb of a pregnant woman. Also, the word CIRCUIT has then the meaning of MOVING on a PATH like electricity traveling in a CIRCUIT. The definition of an electrical circuit means that the electricity travels on a SET course all the way around in a complete CIRCLE. Also, please keep in mind that this is the SAME Hebrew word that is used in the second verse in Isaiah 40:22 which we will look at shortly. So the SAME meaning also applies to that verse as well. Here is how E-Sword defines this Hebrew word.

 

H2329

חוּג

chûg

khoog

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

Total KJV occurrences: 3

 

The word “UPON” has many meanings. It is a preposition. I will highlight the preposition TO which is the meaning that I myself feel is the best meaning for this particular verse of Scripture. Here is how E-Sword defines this Hebrew word.

 

H5921

עַל

‛al

al

Properly the same as H5920 used as a preposition (in the singular or plural, often with prefix, or as conjugation with a particle following); above, over, upon, or against (yet always in this last relation with a downward aspect) in a great variety of applications: - above, according to (-ly), after, (as) against, among, and, X as, at, because of, beside (the rest of), between, beyond the time, X both and, by (reason of), X had the charge of, concerning for, in (that), (forth, out) of, (from) (off), (up-) on, over, than, through (-out), to, touching, X with.

Total KJV occurrences: 5683

 

The word “FACE” also has several meanings but, according to E-Sword, they carry the meaning of TURNING. Here is what E-Sword says.

 

H6440

פָּנִים

pânı̂ym

paw-neem'

Plural (but always used as a singular) of an unused noun (פָּנֶה pâneh, paw-neh'; from 6437); the face (as the part that turns); used in a great variety of applications (literally and figuratively); also (with prepositional prefix) as a preposition (before, etc.): -    + accept, a (be-) fore (-time), against, anger, X as (long as), at, + battle, + because (of), + beseech, countenance, edge, + employ, endure, + enquire, face, favour, fear of, for, forefront (-part), form (-er time, -ward), from, front, heaviness, X him (-self), + honourable, + impudent, + in, it, look [-eth] (-s), X me, + meet, X more than, mouth, of, off, (of) old (time), X on, open, + out of, over against, the partial, person, + please, presence, prospect, was purposed, by reason, of, + regard, right forth, + serve, X shewbread, sight, state, straight, + street, X thee, X them (-selves), through (+ -out), till, time (-s) past, (un-) to (-ward), + upon, upside (+ down), with (-in, + stand), X ye, X you.

 

 

And the word “DEPTH” means the DEEP or the ABYSS which most Bible scholars agree is speaking of OUTER SPACE of the entire universe. The abyss is also used to refer to the deep of the oceans. Here is what E-Sword says.

 

H8415

תְּהֹם    תְּהוֹם

tehôm    tehôm

teh-home', teh-home'

(Usually feminine) from H1949; an abyss (as a surging mass of water), especially the deep (the main sea or the subterranean water supply): - deep (place), depth.

 

Now let us put these meanings that best fit the description of what most people believe about the earth orbiting the sun on a SET COURSE in outer space hanging upon NOTHING to see if these meanings of these Hebrew words AGREE with the Bible or if they CONTRADICT other parts of the Bible. To ME, even if the entire world believes in the FLAT earth and I myself understand the Bible to be teaching that the earth is a SPHERE then I would indeed teach what the Bible ITSELF teaches. So again, I am not trying to twist the Scriptures to fit what the “world” believes. Rather, I am showing you all the meanings of the Hebrew words that I feel the Holy Spirit revealed to me so YOU can decide for yourself. I am after the TRUTH and nothing else but the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. With that being said let us now read Proverbs 8:27 with the OTHER meanings of the Hebrew words. For you see, the translators have made a few errors from time to time in the translations of the Bible.

 

Proverbs 8:27.

 

“When He (Almighty God the Father) prepared the heavens, I was there: when He (Speaking of Almighty God set a CIRCLE TO TURN in the ABYSS:” 

 

And if we use the meaning BESIDE THE REST and also the meaning of BETWEEN, as in, between the other planets in our solar system let us see how this verse reads.

 

“When He (Almighty God the Father) prepared the heavens, I was there: when He (Speaking of Almighty God set (Or ORDAINED a CIRCLE BESIDE THE REST TURNING in the ABYSS:” 

 

Again, please understand that I did not CHANGE any of the meanings of the Hebrew words. I simply placed the OTHER definitions of each word that MATCHES what almost all people of the world understand concerning the UNIVERSE. And to ME, it makes no sense whatsoever to fight against science when the Bible ITSELF supports many things in science that have only been discovered by scientists in the past few hundred years.

Now some “flat earthers” may argue that I am changing God’s word but yet some “flat earthers” do the SAME thing. Here is just one example. I was watching a video teaching by a “flat earther” and he was so excited about his new revelation he found in the book of Revelation. He explained how SOMETIMES the translators have made ERRORS in their translations so we need to look up the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew words for ourselves. So that is what he did in Revelation 20:9 to try and support his predisposed belief that the earth is FLAT. Let us read this verse first and I will explain his ERROR of interpretation. 

 

Revelation 20:9.

 

“And they went up on the BREADTH of the EARTH, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

 

This “flat earther Christian” looked up the Greek word BREADTH so let us do that as well. Here is what E-Sword says.

 

G4114

πλάτος

platos

plat'-os

From G4116; width: - breadth.

 

Now instead of using the actual meanings of this Greek word he saw the Greek word “PLATOS” reminded him of our English word “PLATEAU”. And most people know that a plateau is FLAT. So he concluded that Revelation SHOULD have been translated as follows.

 

This is a “FLAT EARTHER” translation of Revelation 20:9.

 

“And they went up on the FLAT EARTH, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

 

Now let us examine the ERROR of this interpretation. First of all, the context says that they WENT UP ON the earth whether it was a WIDE part of the LAND or they WENT UP ON the WHOLE earth. No matter which interpretation, we can not ignore the other words in this verse. So then, what does the Greek word mean that is translated as they “WENT UP ON”? I mean all the inhabitants of the earth are ALREADY ON the earth. Now IF this verse said they went UPON the earth, then one could be justified to have his or her own opinion as to what meaning fits the best. But it does no say UPON but rather it says UP on the earth which means a place that is HIGHER such as a FLAT PLATEAU which does NOT prove that the WHOLE earth is FLAT. Here is what E-Sword says the Greek word means that in my opinion is CORRECTLY translated as they “WENT UP ON the BREADTH of the LAND” The saints during the Millennial reign of Jesus will be in the LAND of the beloved city of Jerusalem. The wasted ruins that will be destroyed during the FIRST war at the battle of Armageddon will be rebuilt. So the deceived of the nations will go up on the LAND in that part of the world where the beloved city of Jerusalem is located and NOT upon the WHOLE earth.

 

G305

ἀναβαίνω

anabainō

an-ab-ah'ee-no

From G303 and the base of G939; to go up (literally or figuratively): - arise, ascend (up), climb (go, grow, rise, spring) up, come (up).

 

This Greek word carries the meaning of CLIMBING UP on a FLAT part of the earth such as a PLATEAU. Can you not see that if you are going to say that our English word “plateau” came from the Greek word “PLATOS” then you cannot just use PART of the meaning of the word “plateau”? In other words, you must use the whole meaning of what a “plateau” actually IS which we know is a HIGH place on the land that is flat on TOP. The SIDES are not flat but rather the sides rise up. And therefore, you have to CLIMB UP to the top of the “PLATEAU” before you reach the land that is FLAT.

Now you can pick the meaning “COME” and ignore the word UP in parenthesizes to argue that they “CAME on the FLAT earth”. But does that INTERPRETATION agree with the CONTEXT of Revelation 20:9? For you see, any interpretation you conclude must agree with the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Let us read the context and find out the TRUE meaning of the BREADTH of the earth to see if the translators correctly translated this verse or if they made an error and it should read as flat earth.

 

Please read Revelation 20:7-10.

 

And WHEN the thousand years are EXPIRED, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, (This verse tells us WHEN they will COME on the “FLAT” earth, according to the flat earthers”. And, according to the spherical earth Christians, this is when they, the DECEIVED of the nations will rise up to make war with God’s people on the BREADTH, as in, the WIDE part of the LAND. Let us continue. Satan is let loose from the bottomless pit)

8.  And (Satan) shall go out to deceive the nations which are IN the FOUR QUARTERS of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the NUMBER of whom is as the sand of the sea. (In other words, by the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus the REMNANT of the nations that were left alive in their mortal bodies will have grown to REPLENISH the earth population to NUMBER as the sand of the sea which means a LOT of people. Keep in mind that they will be IN the FOUR QUARTERS of the earth which “flat earthers” INTERPRET as being four LITERAL CORNERS of the earth. And if you look at their model of the flat earth the four corners of the earth extend OUTSIDE the so-called DOME of the earth. And that would mean, according to THEIR interpretation of the Scriptures, that ALL the people of the NATIONS would be OUTSIDE the DOME of the earth dwelling IN the FOUR CORNERS of the earth. And that would mean that they would have to somehow get back inside the dome of the earth then CLIMB UP OVER the massive ICE wall surrounding the flat earth. Then they will have to DESCEND back DOWN the so-called ice wall in order to “come on the FLAT earth” Sorry, but there would be NO atmosphere on the OUTSIDE of the dome IN the FOUR CORNERS of the flat earth model. The TRUE SOUND Biblical meaning of the FOUR CORNERS of the earth is that the four corner of the earth are the four cardinal directions of the real genuine spherical earth which are north, south, east, and west. I proved this by the Scriptures interpreting the Scriptures in part one of this study called “IS THE EARTH FLAT?” But for now, let us continue with this passage of Scripture to learn its TRUE meaning in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God)

9  And they (The DECEIVED of the NATIONS dwelling IN the FOUR CORNERS of the earth) went up on the breadth of the earth, (Let us ASSUME that the “flat earthers” interpretation is correct and they came on the FLAT earth) and COMPASSED (Or they SURROUNDED) the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: (Speaking of the city of JERUSALEM, which is a HIGHER elevation than the land surrounding Judea. The Bible says that those north of Jerusalem went UP TO the city of Jerusalem. Now, the direction of the south is DOWN from the north. So the Bible should say DOWN to Jerusalem if so be the earth is flat. For you see, on the flat earth model, Jerusalem would simply be SOUTH of the northern direction which is the CENTER of the flat earth model. But the King James translation says they went UP on the BREADTH of the earth to the belove city. And many other verses of Scriptures agree to say that people went UP to the city of Jerusalem. So to me, the city of Jerusalem, according to the Bible, is on a HIGHER elevation than the SURROUNDING LAND. And the land that is really CLOSE to the city of Jerusalem is definitely not FLAT land. BUT the Holy Temple Mount is indeed FLAT. Let us continue. The deceived ARMY of the nations surrounded the camp of the saints AND the beloved CITY to wipe the saints off the face of the earth) and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. (Or the second half of the WRATH of Almighty God came down out of heaven or the SKY and DEVOURED the deceived army that will be seeking to wide Israel off the face of the earth but God will NEVER allow that to happen)

10.  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.”

 

The last half of verse 10 should read “and shall be torment day and night for an age or a period of time”. Again, the Greek word translated as forever and ever also means TO AN AGE. And the next AGE will begin right after the DESTRUCTION of all the wicked in the LAKE of FIRE. So to ME, the lake of fire is the last half of God's WRATH that will MELT the earth with fervent heat to destroy all the WICKED who will be judge UNWORTHY to receive eternal life to live on the NEW earth that God will create after this present earth PASSES AWAY with a great noise and the ELEMENTS melt as 2 Peter 3:6-18 teaches us.

 

2 Peter 3:6-18.

 

“Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, PERISHED: (Meaning that all the wicked INHABITANTS perished)

7.  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men

8.  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. (In other words, do not be ignorant about the TWO judgments, one BEFORE the thousand-year reign of Jesus, and the second and final Day of Judgment AFTER the Millennial reign of Jesus has ENDED)

9.  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (And TURN from their wicked ways so that they can live for all eternity in peace with God) 

10.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements (Speaking of the rudiments, the FIRST PRINCIPALS, the FOUNDATION, the BEGINNINGS)  shall melt (Or shall be DISSOLVED, as in, shall be brought to and END so that there will be no more sea or no more WICKEDNESS in heaven and on the new earth. In other words, God with END all wickedness) WITH fervent heat, the earth ALSO and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (Now mere common sense teaches us that the earth will NOT pass away at the second coming of Jesus because Jesus and the saints will reign on or over the earth DURING the 1000 years of the Millennial reign of Jesus)

11.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, (Or ENDED by the FIRE of God’s WRATH to cease to exist) what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 

12.  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (Same meaning as above) 

13.  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness

14.  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. (Now, the beast and the false prophet will be JUDGED UNWORTHY to receive eternal life so they will be RESERVED to the lake of fire or the destruction of ALL wicked at the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus. Now, to ME, the BEAST is the beast system of radical ISLAM and the false prophet is Muhammad as being the founder, SATAN as being behind the evil in the world, and the son of perdition of the antichrist that will UNITE the radical Muslims to make all-out war with Israel and the end of day in this PRESENT world)

15.  And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; 

16.  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction

17.  You, therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, (Speaking of anyone that goes against what Almighty God says in his WORD including the unlearned that TWIST the word of God. Remember the spies that brought back an EVIL report speaking AGAINST God’s word to go and possess the land. They were called evil because they did not believe God’s word) fall from your own steadfastness

18.  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” 

 

Before I end part four of this five-part series, I would like you to imagine a spherical dome with a ball suspended inside and a line is drawn around the spherical dome that represents the equator. Imagine all the stars on the outside of this spherical dome covering the earth. Imagine all the stars circling the spherical dome of the earth. Now, if so be the firmament of the earth is indeed SPHERICAL then you could see ALL the stars circling the earth. And on our real genuine spherical earth, we can indeed see all the visible stars in heaven. BUT we cannot see ALL the stars on the FLAT earth model. In THEORY, you can but in reality, you cannot. In other words, in theory, you could see the North Star from Australia on a flat earth. BUT in real life, you can NOT see the North Star from Australia.

Please watch these two very short two minute videos and notice that the stars rotate in the OPPOSITE direction in the southern hemiSPHERE than they do in the northern hemiSPHERE. This would be IMPOSSIBLE on the FLAT earth.

Here is a link to an 8 1/2-minute on YouTube showing the stars rotating from EACH of the two hemispheres of the earth. And as you can plainly see, there are DIFFERENT stars in each hemisphere. And the stars rotate in the OPPOSITE direction. And that would be IMPOSSIBLE if the earth was flat. Please take the time to prove to yourself that the earth is not flat.


“IS THE ABSOLUTE PROOF THE EARTH IS ROTATING?

 

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.

Also, please consider closely that on our REAL GENUINE SPHERICAL earth that the Bible ACTUALLY teaches us, the NORTH star can NOT be seen when you cross into the southern hemiSPHERE. Here is a quote from a website called EARTH SKY that you can check out for yourself. The emphasis is mine.

 

As you travel northward, Polaris climbs higher in the sky. If you go as far north as the North Pole, you’ll see Polaris directly overhead.

As you travel south, Polaris DROPS closer to the northern horizon.

If you get as far as the equator, Polaris SINKS to the horizon.

South of the equator, Polaris DROPS OUT of the SKY.

 

And if you do not trust the information then you can do your own research. If you know someone who lives in the southern hemisphere that you trust then you can send them the information on the website where I got this quote and ask them if they can see the BIG DIPPER and the NORTH STAR. Or you can do the experiment yourself if you TRULY desire to know the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God that teaches us that the earth is a SPHERE that HANGS upon NOTHING and fly to Australia and see if you can see the NORTH star. You should be able to if so be the earth is flat.

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 to DECEIVE and DIVIDE Christians? Please visit these two websites so you can see with your own eyes that the EMBLEM and SEAL of the United Nations are the same images 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 used 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 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 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 UNITED 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.

Please consider reading all the studies I have written on this subject on whether or not the BIBLE teaches us that the earth is FLAT or whether the earth is SPHERICAL in shape. Please click on the following link to find a list of links to all the studies showing the ERRORS of INTERPRETATION made by “flat earther” Christians to try and prove the earth is flat. >>>DOES THE BIBLE TEACH THE EARTH IS FLAT?<<<

And to continue with part 5 click on the study called “THE LIES OF NASA AND SCIENCE!” In part five, we will cover the rest of the miscellaneous verses used by “flat earthers” to TRY and prove that the earth is FLAT. I may have to add more studies later but these five studies should be enough for most Christians to see the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God that the earth is a SPHERE that most people call the GLOBE and the PLANET earth.

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.



Your Brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,


Brother Mark.
