THE LIES OF NASA AND SCIENTISTS! 


If you started reading this study in God’s word here in part five and you have not read the SOUND Biblical evidence from the Scriptures that teach us that the earth is a SPHERE then I implore you to read the first four parts of this series on “IS THE EARTH FLAT?”


Part 5 of the series Is the earth flat?

The LIES of NASA and SCIENTISTS!


On the 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, according to Job 26:7.


Job 26:7.


“He stretches out the NORTH over the empty place, and HANGS the earth upon NOTHING.”

 

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 if 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 in order to DECEIVE 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 eye 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 of the earth being 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. Again, the Bible itself does NOT prophesy of the ONE world government that will be controlled by the antichrist. Yes, in the world yet to come, Jesus will rule over ALL the kingdoms, PLURAL, as the King of kings but there are no prophecies of a ONE-world government that will come to power in this PRESENT world that will be ruled by the man of sin, the son of perdition that is also called the antichrist. But that subject is for another study that I have bits and pieces of scattered in some of my studies that I still need to put together in a SPECIFIC study on this subject in the near future. For now, please keep in mind the flat earth model being the EMBLEM of the UNITED NATIONS as you continue to learn the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Now that you have seen that the Illuminati is BEHIND the teaching of the FLAT earth let us continue to look at the ERRORS of interpretation made by the “flat earthers” to try and prove that the Bible teaches that the earth is flat.


Please read Revelation 1:17.


“Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” 


The argument made by “flat earthers” is HOW can EVERY EYE see Jesus coming in the clouds in the SKY when he comes on the SPHERICAL earth? They CLAIM that this is ONLY possible on the FLAT earth.

THINK for yourself dear children of God. Can you SEE the clouds in the sky over Jerusalem form every place on earth? Keep in mind that, according to you “flat earthers” it is ONLY possible for EVERY EYE to SEE Jesus in the air on the FLAT earth and thus you are LIVING right now on the FLAT earth. So can you see the CLOUDS in the SKY over Jerusalem from the United States of America? How about southern Africa? What about something closer like Turkey? Can you see the SUN at NIGHT? NO! Absolutely NOT! We can NOT see the sun at night on the other side of the world. My point is that the SIZE of the sun is much larger than the Son of man, Jesus coming in clouds of glory. And since we can not see the sun on the other side of the world then there must be another meaning to Revelation 1:7. The Greek word translated as SEE also carries the meaning of PERCEIVE and understand that what the world will be witnessing in the sky is the COMING of Jesus. And those that pierced him will RECOGNIZE that what is happening is the fulfillment of the Scriptures and come to understand or SEE that it is Jesus coming to deliver them.

The truth of the matter is that Jesus is coming as lightning SHINES from the east to the west. And the CHARIOTS of God are MANY. So the whole world will see Jesus coming is the clouds of glory before those chariots of God end up over the land of Israel to end the war being waged by radical Muslims to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth. To learn about the CHARIOTS of God, please read the study “WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT UFOS?” But for now, let us move on to the next verse because to ME, Revelation 1:7 does NOT prove that the earth is flat and thus the ONLY way for every eye to see Jesus at the same time. For you see, it does NOT say at the SAME time.

Their next argument is HOW can God's FEET rest on the footstool of the earth if so be that the earth is rotating and orbiting the sun? Here is the verse they use.


Please read Isaiah 66:1,  


“Thus says the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build unto me? And where is the place of my rest?” 


Now, the image of the flat earth model of “flat earthers” is God literally SITTING on top of a DOME that is covering their flat earth with God’s literal feet sticking through the literal dome covering the earth to REST his feet on the surface of the flat earth. But since God is invisible you can not see his literal feet resting on the earth. So what they ARGUE as their proof for the flat earth is HOW can God’s LITERAL feet rest on the SPHERICAL earth on its axis that is orbiting around the sun while the rest of God's body is sitting in his STATIONARY throne way up in heaven millions of miles away from the earth somewhere out in the center of the universe? The answer is simple. God is speaking in FIGURATIVE language.

Look at the last part of this verse. God says and where is the place of MY rest and NOT just the place of rest for ONLY his FEET. Revelation 21:1-3 teaches us that God HIMSELF will come down to dwell with the RIGHTEOUS of the earth on the NEW earth. The FEET of God which is figurative language speaking of Gos’ Son. Jesus will have already been resting on the earth for 1000 years before Yahweh HIMSELF comes down to his PLACE of REST at the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus. You can also read Zechariah chapter 14 and 1 Corinthians 15:20-28 on your own to see that the FEET of Yahweh is FIGURATIVELY speaking prophetically of his Son Jesus being His feet and NOT some LITERAL feet of Almighty God literally resting on the earth. So again, Isaiah 66:1 also FAILS to support the flat earth theory. Let us move on to another verse used to TRY and prove that the earth is flat.


Please read Matthew 4:8.


“Again, the devil takes him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed him ALL the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;” 


And the “flat earthers” argument is that ONLY on the FLAT earth is it possible to see ALL the kingdoms of the entire earth. You cannot see ALL the kingdoms of the world on a globe because the CURVATURE of the earth would block your view.

Again,  the TRUE meaning of this verse is simple. Either God intended ALL the kingdoms of the world to mean the KNOWN world at that time in the days of Jesus or God is using FIGURATION language. But even if Jesus was LITERAL transported by Satan to the top of Mount Everest Jesus could not see all the kingdoms of the known world during his days of flesh on the earth. So then, to ME, God is using FIGURATIVE language. And here is WHY I say this. The earth is HUGE and thus the mountain would have to be extremely high and the eyesight of Jesus extremely powerful to be able to see THOUSANDS of miles away. And IF such a mountain really LITERALLY existed in the days of Jesus then WHERE is it NOW? Logically, it would be in the CENTER of the flat earth model because only the center of the so-called literal dome would be high enough for such a mountain to fit under the dome of the earth. And IF such an extremely high mountain truly literally existed in the days of Jesus then we could see that mountain with a telescope. So take a telescope equipped with a camera and send me a picture of that mountain. Where I live I can not see ANY mountain on the earth even with a telescope and I only live 1000 miles away from the mountains. Mount Everest is much further away but I still cannot see the highest mountain on our real genuine earth. And IF God made the literal mountain sink below the ice-cap at the North Pole then surely it would be recorded in history.

The truth of the matter is that when we are tempted by the devil, Satan takes up places in our MINDS. So I myself, do not see Satan LITERALLY teleporting Jesus up on a LITERAL high mountain so he could see the whole earth. Rather, I see Satan showing Jesus a VISION in his mind which is HOW Satan tempts us. And the Bible says that Jesus was tempted in ALL point LIKE AS we are tempted.


Please read Hebrew 4:15.


“For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in ALL points tempted LIKE AS WE ARE (Tempted) as we are, yet without sin.”


Now, personally, I myself have never been LITERALLY taken or transported by Satan to another place to be tempted. So to me, I do not see that Matthew 4:8 proves that the earth is flat. Let us move on to the next verse used by “flat earthers” to try and prove that the earth is flat.


Please read Genesis 11:4.  


“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we are scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”

 

Now, the “flat earthers”  use another translation, other than the King James Version, when they quote this verse that says “with its tops IN the HEAVENS” where heaven is in the plural. It could be just a typo because TOPS is also plural in that “flat earther” video teaching. But the Bible itself speaks of just ONE Tower of Babble. Anyway, no matter which translation you use the main point I want to cover is that they emphasize the word IN heaven.

Again, their argument is that the tower was so HIGH that it went through the clouds into heaven. And my argument is could not the same HIGH tower have been built on the SPHERICAL earth? I mean we have some pretty high skyscrapers in our day. And it is hard for me to imagine a tower made out of clay bricks being even as close to the height of one of the smallest skyscrapers that we have today. Read the verse again. There is NOTHING in the entire passage of Scripture in Genesis 11:4 that says or implies that this tower could be SEEN from all over the earth. Also, “flat earthers” argue that the SKY is BELOW the DOME and HEAVEN is ABOVE the dome. So that would mean that this tower made out of bricks would have punched through the dome in order to extend IN HEAVEN, according to the TRANSLATION they use translated as with it tops IN the HEAVENS.

For ME, I do not see how this verse proves that the earth is flat. But to show my readers the true meaning of this verse, I took a look at all the meanings of the words in this verse and I saw ANOTHER possible translation or meaning of this whole passage of Scripture. Without breaking this passage of Scripture down FOR you word by word, here is what I am seeing. The TOWER is actually a HIGH fortress with a city inside of it like a CASTLE fortress. The NAME that they wanted to make for themselves is that no one is going to be able to make war with them and conquer them because they will have the greatest fortress in the world. So God saw the IMAGINATION in their heart to make WAR and he destroyed their TOWER fortress and confused the language to become the many languages of the world we have today. Again, there is nothing in this passage of Scripture that says that this tower could be seen from the ENDS of the earth. So to me, this verse in Genesis 11:4 does NOT prove that the earth is flat.

Let us move on to the next ARGUMENT that they use to try and prove the earth is flat. And that argument uses several verses. They begin the argument with a statement saying that God set the sun IN the CLOUDS. And then they show some photographs which APPEAR to show that there are clouds in FRONT of the sun and ALSO BEHIND the sun at the SAME time. And they argue that the ONLY way for that to happen is if the sun is SMALLER and much CLOSER to the earth. They refuse to accept that they are seeing an OPTICAL ILLUSION because they SINCERELY believe that these following verses prove that God set the sun in the clouds and BETWEEN the CLOUDS. Let us read all the verses first using their emphasis on certain words and then we will take a closer look at each passage of Scripture one by one.


Please read Psalm 19:1-6.


“To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God, AND the firmament shows his handiwork. (Here they are arguing that the second heaven of Outerspace is SEPARATED from the firmament by a DOME because of the word AND. Does ONLY the sky show the handiworks of God?)

2. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. 

3.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (Here they argue that all anyone needs to do is to LOOK at the heavens above and the sky BELOW the heavens to know that they are separated by a DOME)

4.  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. IN THEM has he set a TABERNACLE for the sun(And to THEM, this means that God set the sun WITHIN or UNDER the DOME of the earth for the LITERAL sun to dwell in or tabernacle in.)

5.  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man to run a race. 

6.  His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” 


Now, this last verse 6, they INTERPRET as being the LITERAL SUN traveling in a CIRCUIT around the FLAT earth UNDER the dome because their understanding of this verse 6 is that the SUN is what is literally MOVING and NOT the earth that is moving. Let us read the next five passages of Scripture before I go deeper into the TRUE meaning of ALL SIX of these passages of Scripture.


2 Samuel 23:4.  


“And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun RISES, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.”


Job 36:32.  


“With CLOUDS he COVERS the light; and commands it not to shine by the cloud that comes BETWIXT.”



Job 37:21.  


And now men see not the bright light which is IN the clouds: but the wind passes, and cleanses them.”



Ecclesiastes 12:2.  


“While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the CLOUDS return after the rain:”


Genesis 1:14-19.  


“And God said, Let there be lights IN the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 

15.  And let them be for lights IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 

16.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 

17.  And God set them IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 

18.  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 

19.  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” 


Again, “flat earthers” use all SIX of these passages of Scripture to TRY and prove that God set the Sun and the moon IN the SKY where the CLOUDS are because the Bible uses terms like BETWIX,  IN the firmament, IN the CLOUDS that to THEM, describe a CLOSER sun and, therefore, a much smaller sun. They also interpret terms like RISES and SETS as the sun itself moving and NOT the earth orbiting the sun. And then to tie everything in a bow so to speak they use Psalm 19:1-6 as their nail in the coffin so to speak to destroy the SPHERICAL earth theory. Or so they think.

Let us start with Job 36:32 since it is the shortest verse.


Job 36:32.  


“With CLOUDS he COVERS the LIGHT, and commands it not to shine BY the CLOUDthat comes BETWIXT.” 


This does NOT prove the flat earth or the SPHERICAL earth. For you see, the sun does NOT shine through dark storm clouds that come BETWEEN the light of the sun and the LAND where the dark storm clouds are BLOCKING the sun. The same is true on the flat earth AND the SPHERICAL earth. This verse does NOT say that the SUN is in between the CLOUD. It says that they COULD come BETWEEN the land and the LIGHT of the sun. Also, the LIGHT would STILL be seen on the earth if so be that the sun is BETWEEN the cloud. I do not think they read this verse very well. Let us move on to verse number three of the six verses that is also a short verse.


Ecclesiastes 12:2.  


“While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the CLOUDS return after the rain:”


I am not sure HOW they even use this verse to try and prove the earth is flat or that the sun is even IN the CLOUDS. The Hebrew word translated as clouds also means DARKNESS. So to ME, this verse is simply saying while the rays of the light of the sun, moon, AND the stars be NOT darkened nor the DARKNESS return after the rain means the dark sky during a storm does NOT return or remain after the dark storm clouds pass and do not return. In other words, the CONTEXT speaks of evil in the land and just as the darkness of a storm passes and does not return AFTER the rain then so shall the EVIL in the earth pass away and be NO MORE. Ecclesiastes uses a LOT of figuration and poetic language. For me, I would not trust the book of Ecclesiastes to build a doctrine upon. Please read and consider Ecclesiastes 1:2 where Solomon the Preacher says that ALL is VANITY. Is believing in Jesus VANITY? So I myself, do not see Ecclesiastes as a poetic figurative language that should NOT be interpreted LITERALLY unless the CONTEXT clearly supports a literal interpretation. So, therefore, to me, Ecclesiastes 21:2 does NOT prove that the earth is flat. Let us move on to verse number five of the six verses which again is another short verse.


Job 37:21.  


And now men see not the bright light which is IN the clouds: but the wind passes, and cleanses them.”


First of all, the word IN does NOT prove that the sun is BETWEEN the clouds, AMONG the cloud, nor at the same HEIGHT as the clouds. On the SPHERICAL earth, we can look up through a HOLE IN the clouds and see the sun.

Secondly, the Hebrew word translated as CLOUDS also means HEAVEN, SKY, firmament, a THIN VAPOR, and powder. So the translators could have made an error in their translation. 

Thirdly, this verse says the BRIGHT LIGHT which is IN the CLOUDS and NOT the SUN that is IN the CLOUDS. And when the clouds are thin, then the BRIGHT LIGHT from the sun can still be seen IN the clouds. BUT the light of the sun is NOT so BRIGHT as it is when the sun shining WITHOUT the CLOUDS dimming down the BRIGHT LIGHT of the sun. In other words, when the LIGHT OF sun is IN the clouds we see NOT the BRIGHT BLINDING light of the sun. We can look up at the light in the CLOUDS FROM the sun and not have to turn away our eyes from looking because we are not looking DIRECTLY at the SUN ITSELF that is TOO BRIGHT to look at. Another meaning is that if the clouds are DARK storm clouds then we cannot see the LIGHT of the sun that is ABOVE the clouds. The preposition IN is NOT in the original Hebrew text, So again, this verse does NOT prove that the earth is flat. Nor does it prove that God set the sun and the moon IN the lower atmosphere of the earth at the HEIGHT of the CLOUDS. 

FOURTHLY, the CONTEXT says fair weather is coming. Now, I do not know if you have heard this before but when we see cirrus clouds high in the sky then we can know that we will have fair weather for the next few days. Click on the link to see some images of CIRRUS CLOUDS

Once again, I have not found ANY verses of Scripture in ANY of this five-part series of studies that prove that the earth is flat. Let us move on to verse number four of the six verses that they use to try and prove that the earth does not move and that it is the sun that is moving. This is another short verse.


2 Samuel 23:4.  


“And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun RISES, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.”


Now, this verse is using FIRGURATIVE PROPHETIC language prophesying of the first and second coming of Jesus. So the word SUN is figurative language referring to Jesus RISING from the dead. Notice that it says HE shall be as the light. Jesus is also called the SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS in Malachi 4:1-3. But even if you doubt that this a prophetic figurative language, the so-called literal spotlight sun on your flat earth model does NOT LITERALLY rise and set either. It only APPEARS to rise in the east off the horizon and climb high in the sky at noonday and then SET below the horizon in the west to end the day. To me, God knew that the spherical earth orbiting around the sun would cause the sun to LOOK as IF it was rising and setting so God used FIRGURATIVE language. So again, this verse does NOT prove that the sun is MOVING over the flat earth that is NOT moving. Let us move on to passage of Scripture number five of the six verses used to try and prove that the earth is flat because the sun is supposedly MOVING in the sky at the height of the clouds, according to those who believe the earth is flat.


Genesis 1:14-19.  


“And God said, Let there be lights IN the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 

15.  And let them be for lights IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 

16.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 

17.  And God set them IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 

18.  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 

19.  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” 


Now I have already covered this passage of Scripture in-depth in part 1 of this series of studies called “IS THE EARTH FLAT?” So I am not going to cover it again verse by verse. But I will point out again the TRUE meaning of verse 16. Let us read verse 16 again with the emphasis on the STARS which “flat earthers” read right over.


Genesis 1:16


And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the STARS ALSO.”


So WHERE did God set the STARS? Did God set the stars UNDER the so-called DOME covering the earth? Or did God set the stars in the vast EXPANSE in HEAVEN?

Now let us read the very next verse and I will emphasize another word that the “flat earthers” either read right over or they know about it but they avoid telling YOU about it.


Genesis 1:17.


“And God set THEM IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,”


The THEM speaks of ALL three, the sun, the moon AND the STARS ALSO being set IN the FIRMAMENT. And personally, I am not buying any argument that all the stars that are WITHOUT NUMBER are UNDER the so-called hard solid DOME covering the flat earth. So you can NOT dogmatically DEMAND that the word FIRMAMENT can ONLY mean the SKY and can NEVER mean the expanse of HEAVEN above the sky. You can TRY and argue that maybe God placed ONLY the sun and the moon in the sky and he placed the STARS in heaven above the sky. But then that argument is just your OWN private interpretation because, in truth, the firmament is called HEAVEN, And we know that the Bible teaches us that there are three heavens. So to argue that only the sun and moon are in the SKY and only the stars are in heaven is like saying God is a lair and the sky is NOT called HEAVEN. That is called having your OWN personal OPINION or your own PRIVATE interpretation. And the Bible warns us about having our OWN PRIVATE interpretation.


Please read 2 Peter 1:20. 


“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”


Let us move on to the final passage of Scripture, passage number six that is used in conjunction with the previous five to try and prove that the sun and the moon are in the SKY and NOT IN heaven ABOVE the sky.


Please read Psalm 19:1-6.


“To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God, AND the firmament shows his handiwork. (Here they are arguing the second heaven which is OuterSpace is SEPARATED from the firmament by a solid hard DOME because of the word AND. Does not the second heaven SHOW the handiwork of God? Does ONLY the sky below the second heaven DECLARE the handiwork of God? The word and is just a way of saying the SAME thing trice but in different ways)

2. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. 

3.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (Here they argue that all anyone needs to do is to LOOK at the heavens above and the sky BELOW the heavens to know that they are separated by a DOME)

4.  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. IN THEM has he set a TABERNACLE for the sun

5.  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man to run a race. 

6.  His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” 


Now, again, this last verse 6 they INTERPRET as being the SUN traveling in a CIRCUIT over the FLAT earth because their understanding of this verse 6 is that the SUN is what is literally MOVING and NOT the earth that is moving.

To ME, the TRUE meaning of this passage of Scripture is that it is FIGURATIVE PROPHETIC language. And HIS going forth is referring to the SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS that we read in Malichi 4:2 which we know to be Jesus. And HIS CIRCUIT is from the END of heaven, speaking of God’s throne, unto the ENDS of the WORLD to gather the saints and then execute the fiery wrath of God. And nothing will be HID from the HEAT of Jesus coming in FLAMES of FIRE to execute JUDGMENT from one end of the world to the other end of the world. There will be no hiding place for the wicked in the WRATH of Almighty God that Jesus will execute. The TABERNACLE of the SUN is figurative language that speaks of the DWELLING place of Jesus, the SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Jesus is the BRIDEGROOM and the SUN in verse 4 is referring to the SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS as we see in Malachi 4:2. Let us go ahead and read that verse in its context so you can see that it is saying the SAME thing as Psalm 19:1-6. Let us COMPARE Scripture with Scripture to learn the TRUE meaning of the SUN in Psalm 19:4.


Malachi 4:1-3.


“For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 

2.  But unto you, that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings, and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 

3.  And you shall tread down the wicked; (Or you righteous saints in Jesus will be given the HONOR to execute the wrath alongside the SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS upon the wicked) for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the LORD of hosts.” 


So again, to me, NONE of these passages of Scriptures prove that the earth is flat. But the ERRORS of interpretation made by “flat earther Christians” is IRON-CLAD proof to me that the flat earth theory is FALSE teaching.

I saved their BEST Scripture for last. Let us read what they claim is THEIR iron-clad proof that the earth is flat.


Please read Job 38:14.


“It is turned as clay to the seal, and they stand as a garment.”


Now here is their argument that they give AS you are watching a WORD PICTURE of a signet ring being PRESSED DOWN into a ball of hot wax to make a SEAL that seals a letter. They INTERPRET this verse as follows using that WORD PICTURE you just saw of the hot BALL of wax bubbling up around all sides and it is FLATTENED DOWN. Then they show you their model of the flat earth comparing the flat earth to the flatten ball of wax and exclaim, you see, God is giving us the PERFECT description of the FLAT earth. You have the ice wall all around the circumference of the flat earth just like the CLAY SEAL is TURNED up on the edge all the way around the FLAT center made by the SIGNET ring.

But here is the thing. WHEN was the EARTH created? Was mankind created BEFORE the earth was created? NO! Of course not. The earth was created first and then God created man to dwell upon the earth. And then man FELL into sin. Is that not the ORDER of the way things happened? Now read the CONTEXT of Job 38:14 to learn the TRUE meaning of WHEN God WILL indeed, in the FUTURE, FLATTEN the LAND and NOT the whole earth. If you read the whole chapter of Job 38 you will see that Almighty God himself is speaking to Job who is a FIGURE of Jesus, the bright and morning star or the DAWNING star, the DAYSPRING star. Also, you will see many hidden PROPHECIES referring to the second coming of Jesus to execute the WRATH of God. Let us read a couple of verses so you can see that God is speaking of yet FUTURE events surrounding the WRATH of God in the CONTEXT of Job 38:14.


Please read Job 38:22,23.


“Have you entered into the treasures of the snow? Or have you seen the treasures of the hail, (Speaking of the great hailstones in Revelation 11:19 which is the 7th trumpet or LAST trumpet that is the WRATH of God. And also in Revelation 16:21)

23.  Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?


Now, let us read another prophecy of Jesus and the second coming to execute the WRATH of God. Notice that some of the same figurative prophetic words of speech are being used. Notice that God will SHAKE the earth which we all know will happen at the BATTLE and war of Armageddon that can clearly be seen in Job 38:22,23 when Jesus executes the WRATH of God.

But the main thing that I want you to see is that Almighty God WILL, in the FUTURE at the second coming of Jesus, make Jesus a SIGNET. I agree that the Hebrew word is incorrectly translated as a SEAL in Job 38:14 and should have been translated as SIGNET. Even “flat earthers”, say that the word SEAL should have been translated as SIGNET. And that is WHEN God will use Jesus as his SIGNET to FLATTEN the earth or more precisely God will flatten the LAND at the BATTLE of Armageddon. So you can see that Job 38:14 has NOTHING whatsoever with the original CREATION of some FLAT earth or the RESTORING of the earth in Genesis chapter 1 to press down the SPHERICAL earth to make it flat. Think this through for your self dear children of God. The ANALOGY used by the “flat earthers” is a signet RING pressing down a BALL of hot wax to make it FLAT. That would mean that God FIRST created the earth SPHERICAL in shape and THEN perhaps changed his mind and PRESSED DOWN the earth to make the SPHERICAL earth flat. It makes no sense, to me, why God would TURN or CHANGE the SPHERICAL earth to the flat earth by pressing it down flat like a signet ring presses down a ball of clay to make it flat. I mean did God make a mistake and then CHANGED the SPHERICAL earth to make it flat? Let us COMPARE Scripture with Scripture to learn the TRUE meaning of Job 38:14 in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


Please read Haggai 2:21-23.


“Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, (Again, like Job, Zerubbabel is a FIGURE of Jesus. So God is speaking to Jesus through the prophecies in the Scriptures here and in Job) saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth

22  And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen, and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 

23.  In that day, (Speaking of the day of God’s WRATH to shake the heavens and the earth) says the LORD of hosts, will I take YOU, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, (The name Shealtiel comes from two words and one of those words means the STRENGTH of the Almighty God. And together they mean I ask strength FROM the Almighty God. So again, this is a hidden prophecy of Jesus where Almighty God is speaking to Jesus in the Scriptures, saying, I will take YOU, Jesus my servant) says the LORD, and will make YOU as a SIGNET: for I have chosen YOU, says the LORD of hosts.”


The Hebrew word translated as SIGNET here in Haggai 2:23 is the SAME Hebrew word translated as a SEAL in Job 38:14. Now let us look at the meanings of some other words in Job 38:14 to learn its TRUE meaning in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

The word “TURN” has several meanings. I think that OVERTURN and OVERTHROW are the best meanings to use because they AGREE perfectly with Haggai 2:21-23 which teach of the second coming of Jesus to OVERTHROW the KINGDOM of the world.  Remember that the verse before in Job 38:13 speaks of the WICKED being SHAKEN OUT of the IT. And that speaks of the kingdoms of the wicked being OVERTURNED and given to Jesus and the righteous saints in the world to come. Here is what E-Sword says.


H2015

הָפַךְ

hâphak

haw-vak'

A primitive root; to turn about or over; by implication to change, overturn, return, pervert: -  X become, change, come, be converted, give, make [a bed], overthrow (-turn), perverse, retire, tumble, turn (again, aside, back, to the contrary, every way).


The word “CLAY” in Job 38:13 also means as a HEAP. And when you do your own research to see how it is used in other verses of Scripture in the Bible you can see that Jesus, as God's SIGNET, will TURN the WICKED to a HEAP of DRY AHES and DUST. Here is what E-Sword says.


H2563

חֹמֶר

chômer

kho'-mer

From H2560; properly a bubbling up, that is, of water, a wave; of earth, mire or clay (cement); also a heap; hence a chomer or dry measure: - clay, heap, homer, mire, motion, mortar.


Now let us read Job 38:13-15 together in their CONTEXT with these other meanings of “TURN”, “CLAY”, and “SEAL”.


Job 38:13,14.


“That it (Speaking of the DAYSPRING in verse 12 which is FIGURATIVE prophetic language speaking of the DAWN, the bright and morning star which we all know is speaking of Jesus as the DAYSPRING or the daystar rising in the SPRING to LEARN his PLACE of exaltation to power and authority to JUDGE the earth. Or that JESUS) might take hold of the ends of the earth, (Or the LAND, the WORLD, the countries, the wicked kingdoms of this present world) that the wicked might be shaken out of it

14.  It (The world and the WICKED) is OVERTHROWN as a HEAP of ASHES by or before the SIGNET; (Jesus) and they stand as a garment. (Now, I myself believe that this part I have highlighted in blue speaks of the RIGHTEOUS in Jesus Christ stand as the WIFE of Jesus. The Hebrew word translated as garment also means WIFE. And we are not appointed to the WRATH of God. The Hebrew word translated as they stand also means to PRESENT themselves as a GARMENT. And the SPOTTED GARMENT of the WICKED will NOT receive eternal life at the coming of Jesus)

15.  And FROM the WICKED their light is withheld, (Or DENIED) and the high arm (Or the PROUD that have exalted themselves OVER the meek and lowly to oppress them) SHALL BE broken.”


So even the BEST verse of the “flat earthers” does not prove that the earth is flat. But their ERRORS of INTERPRETATION to me are IRON CLAD PROOF that the earth is the SPHERE that we call a GLOBE. Can you not see then EVEN IF Job 38:14 is being made or forced to say that God FLATTEN the BALL shaped earth like a signet ring changes and flatten a ball of clay that the TIMING of this so-called flattening is at the second coming of Jesus. Job 38:14 did NOT take place at the CREATION of the earth in eternity past NOR at the RESTORATION of the earth in the Genesis account. Clearly, the CONTEXT of Job 38:14 speaks of the WRATH of God and NOT the creation of the earth. The FOUNDATION of the earth means God DECLARING the END from the beginning. Please read the studies called WHAT DOES FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD MEAN? and “IS THE EARTH SITTING ON A LITERAL FOUNDATION?

Keep in mind that the Illuminati is behind the United Nations and the United Nations has the SAME image of the FLAT EARTHERS as the Emblem and Seal of the United Nations. So WHO is deceiving who? And WHAT is the actual DECEPTION? It is the earth being a SPHERE? Or is the Illuminati trying to discredit the WITNESS of Christians by deceiving Christians that the earth of FLAT? It is the Illuminati that wants to rule and dominate the world under a ONE world government. The Bible itself does NOT prophesy a one-world government. Many verses have been incorrectly translated as the whole EARTH when they should have been correctly translated as the whole LAND/ Please read Revelation 11:15 and notice that KINGDOMS in PLURAL and NOT a ONE world kingdom.


Revelation 11:15.


And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The KINGDOMS of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.

Do your own research on the word KINGDOMS in the plural to see for yourself that not one verse prophesies of all the kingdoms of the world to become a ONE world kingdom. It is the Illuminati that has deceived some Bible prophecy teachers to preach a one-world government so the Christians would not speak out AGAINST a one-world government. Kind of like FREE advertisement for the Illuminati. I am convinced that the son of perdition will be given power by Satan over ONE-FOURTH of the earth that will be in the Middle East. So MOST of the GREAT tribulation will be CONCENTRATED in the WHOLE LAND of the Middle East. And that is exactly what is happen now.

Again, if you started reading this study in God’s word here in part five and you have not read the SOUND Biblical evidence from the Scriptures that teach us that the earth is a SPHERE then I implore you to read the first four parts of this series on “IS THE EARTH FLAT?”

Before I end this five-part series of studies in God's word, 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 is 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 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 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 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?<<< I have added several more studies since the first five-part series.

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.
