WHAT DOES ISAIAH 40:22 TRULY MEAN?


SPELLING EDITED


WHAT DOES ISAIAH 40:22 TRULY MEAN?


What does the Bible ITSELF mean in Isaiah 40:22 when it says that God SITS UPON the CIRCLE of the earth? Let us read Isaiah 40:22 from the King James Version of the Bible.


Isaiah 40:22.


“It is HE (Speaking of Almighty God) that SITS UPON the CIRCLE of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:”


 And when I say the Bible ITSELF teaches us that this verse means, I mean the true correct SOUND Biblical interpretation of Isaiah 40:22 in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God that does NOT contradict any other verse of Scripture in the entire Bible when they are correctly interpreted as well.

So here are the options that I myself see that we have as possible interpretations of the phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth”.

#1. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the FLAT circular earth.

#2. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the circle of the ARCH of the dome over the flat earth. 

#3. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the circle of the ARCH of the firmament over the spherical earth.

#4. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean an imaginary circle above the flat earth up in the heaven of “outer space” where the constellation of the stars are and the throne of God is located.

#5. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean an imaginary circle above the spherical earth being traced by the north pole as the earth rotates upon its tilted axis which is called the PRECESSION of the earth up in the heaven where God’s throne and the constellations telling the story of our Messiah are located.

#6. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean that the earth is a SPHERE that is revolving on its tilted axis and the spherical earth is revolving around the sun. 

#7. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean a combination of three of these POSSIBLE meanings.


But whatever meaning or meanings we choose then that meaning or meanings MUST AGREE with the REST of God’s wor having NO CONTRADICTION with any other Scriptures that are correctly interpreted as well. So let us take them in the order I listed them and see if they agree with God’s word or if they contradict God’s word.


#1. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the FLAT circular earth.


Now, this PHRASE “the CIRCLE of the earth” by itself could mean the flat circular earth. BUT we can NOT simply ignore the rest of this verse and the phrase right before this phrase says the following.


Isaiah 40:22a.


“It is HE (Speaking of Almighty God) that SITS UPON the CIRCLE of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;...”


So does the Bible ITSELF teach us that God's throne sits ON the earth whether it is flat or spherical? NO! Absolutely not! Simply read the following verses that have no need to be interpreted. First of all, the Hebrew word translated as “UPON” in Isaiah 40:22 also means ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth.


Psa 115:16.  


“The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth has he given to the children of men.”


Please notice the phrase “The HEAVEN, even the HEAVENS is the LORD’S. The very first word heaven is singular and the next word heaven is plural which means that Yahweh’s throne where he SITS in the THIRD heaven ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth. So how do we know that this interpretation is the truth of the whole word of God? Is there any verse of Scripture that teaches us that there are THREE heavens? Paul teaches us that God caught him up to the THIRD heaven to give him revelations.


Please read 2 Corinthians 12:1-4. 


“It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 

2.  I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such a one caught up to the third heaven

3.  And I knew such a man, (whether in the body or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 

4.  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” 


So then, the FIRST heaven is that SKY that is LAYERED with many layers of the atmosphere. The higher you go up in the sky the THINNER the air becomes. And if you go too high you will need oxygen to breathe or you will die because the air is too thin to breathe. The first heaven is called the FIRMAMENT.

The SECOND heaven is what we call “outer space”. And the Bible ALSO calls the second heaven the FIRMAMENT, according to Genesis 1:6-8. In other words, BOTH the first heaven and the second heaven are called HEAVEN.


Genesis 1:6-8.


 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 

7.  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 

8.  And God called the FIRMAMENT HEAVEN. And the evening and the morning were the second day.” 


And the THIRD heaven is where God’s THRONE is located up ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth.

Therefore, interpretation #1, this phrase, “the CIRCLE of the earth”, might mean the FLAT circular earth CONTRADICTS other parts of God’s word because, obviously, God’s throne does NOT sit UPON the FLAT CIRCLE of the earth. Nor does God’s throne sit UPON the SPHERICAL earth. God's throne is ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth. Now let us see if interpretation #2 agrees with God’s word or if it contradicts God’s word.


#2. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the circle of the ARCH of the dome over the flat earth.


There are many sound Biblical reasons of WHY, I myself, do not believe that the earth is flat. I do believe that God “encapsulated the entire SPHERICAL earth by the EXPANSE that we call Outerspace and the Bible calls the second heaven. Here is how E-Sward defines the Hebrew word translated as FIRMAMENT.


H7549

רָקִיעַ

râqı̂ya‛

raw-kee'-ah

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

Total KJV occurrences: 17


And here is the meaning of the root word from which the Hebrew word “ragiya” comes.


H7554

רָקַע

râqa‛

raw-kah'

A primitive root; to pound the earth (as a sign of passion); by analogy to expand (by hammering); by implication to OVERLAY (with thin sheets of metal): - beat, make broad, spread abroad (forth, over, out, into plates), stamp, stretch.

Total KJV occurrences: 11


And in Genesis 1:8 God called the firmament HEAVEN.


Genesis 1:8.


“And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”


And here is how E-Sword defines the Hebrew word translated a HEAVEN in Genesis 1:8 which is what God himself calls the FIRMAMENT.


H8064

שָׁמֶה    שָׁמַיִם

shâmayim    shâmeh

shaw-mah'-yim, shaw-meh'

The second form being dual of an unused singular; from an unused root meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible ARCH in which the clouds move, AS WELL AS to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve): - air, X astrologer, heaven (-s).

Total KJV occurrences: 421


So then, the visible ARCH of the SKY during the day is the ATMOSPHERE that has many THIN LAYERS. The ANALOGY is thin layers of METAL but the IMPLIED meaning is simply LAYERS. You have to read into the meaning and the context that the THIN LAYERS of atmosphere that OVERLAY the earth are just ONE hard solid impenetrable dome layer covering the FLAT earth. Why is it so hard for “flat earther” Christians to see that God has overlayed the SPHERICAL earth with thin layers of ATMOSPHERE and then God ordained BOUNDS, as in, COMMANDED that the FALLEN angels cannot go any higher than the atmosphere of the earth. That is why they are called the principalities and the powers of the AIR.

Also, the visible ARCH of the night SKY is called the SECOND heaven which is where the sun, moon, planets, and STARS are located. Please read the definition again and then read Genesis 1:14-19. The firmament is called HEAVEN which means the visible ARCH in which the clouds move, AS WELL AS to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve


Now read 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.”


So to ME, God set ALL the lights in the EXPANSE of the SECOND heaven we call Outerspace. And even IF God placed all the celestial bodies in the FIRST heaven that still does NOT prove the earth is FLAT. But we can be assured that God placed ALL the host of heaven, the sun, the moon, and all the STARS in the second heaven because the Bible ITSELF states as a FACT that God’s throne is in the HEIGHT of the STARS.


Please read Job 22:12-14.


Is not God IN the HEIGHT of heaven? and behold the HEIGHT of the STARS, how HIGH they are! (So clearly, neither God nor the STARS are in the FIRST heaven of the layered atmosphere of the earth. But rather, God is ABOVE the earth in the HEIGHT of Heaven among the STARS. And our SUN is a small STAR but because it is closer than any other star it is a GREATER light to the earth that all the other STARS located in the EXPANSE of the second heaven that is ALSO called the FIRMAMENT)

13.  And you say, How does God know? can he judge through the dark cloud? 

14.  Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walks IN the CIRCUIT OF heaven.” 


In other words, God has his OWN CIRCLE up in heaven among the HEIGHT of the STARS that are really HIGH or far away up in heaven. Please read the study “WHERE IS GOD’S THRONE LOCATED IN HEAVEN?” But for now, let us move on to option #3 of the six possible options that I myself see that we have as possible interpretations of the phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth”. For you see, to me, option #2 definitely CONTRADICTS many verses of Scripture in the Bible.


#3. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the circle of the ARCH of the firmament called HEAVEN in Genesis 1:8 that is visible over the SPHERICAL earth in both the daytime sky AND the nighttime sky. 


We already covered this but I believe it is worth repeating. And here is how E-Sword defines the Hebrew word translated a HEAVEN in Genesis 1:8 which is what God himself calls the FIRMAMENT.


H8064

שָׁמֶה    שָׁמַיִם

shâmayim    shâmeh

shaw-mah'-yim, shaw-meh'

The second form being dual of an unused singular; from an unused root meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible ARCH in which the clouds move, AS WELL AS to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve): - air, X astrologer, heaven (-s).

Total KJV occurrences: 421


So then, the visible ARCH of the SKY during the day is the ATMOSPHERE that has many THIN LAYERS. The ANALOGY is thin layers of METAL but the IMPLIED meaning is simple LAYERS. You have to read into the meaning and the context that the THIN layers that OVERLAY the earth is a hard solid impenetrable dome covering the FALT earth. Why is it so hard for “flat earther” Christians to see that God has overlayed the SPHERICAL earth with thin layers of ATMOSPHERE and then God ordained BOUNDS, as in, COMMANDED that the FALLEN angels cannot go any higher than the atmosphere of the earth.

Also, the visible ARCH of the night SKY is called the SECOND heaven which is where the sun, moon, planets, and STARS are located. Please read the definition again and then read Genesis 1:14-19.


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.”


So to ME, God set ALL the lights in the EXPANSE of the SECOND heaven we call Outerspace and option number THREE is definitely SOUND Biblical teaching. For a deeper study on the Hebrew word that is translated as “CIRCLE of the earth in Isaiah 40:22 please read the study “IS THE EARTH A SPHERE CALL THE GLOBE?” The root words of the Hebrew word translated as the CIRCLE of the earth convey the meaning of TURNING and REVOLVING. Let us move on to option number four.


#4. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean an imaginary circle above the FLAT earth up in the heaven of “outer space” where the constellation of the stars are and the throne of God is located.


Well, according to some “flat earthers” ALL the STARS are UNDER the hard solid impenetrable DOME over the FLAT earth. And therefore, “flat earthers” have no teaching of the PRECESSION of the earth. For you see, “flat earthers” interpret some of the verses that say the earth is immovable as meaning that the earth is STATIONARY. So an imaginary CIRCLE drawn up in heaven by a MOVING earth REVOLVING on is axis is impossible with a flat STATIONARY earth. Let us move on to option number five.


#5. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean an imaginary circle above the spherical earth being traced by the north pole as the earth rotates upon its tilted axis which is called the PRECESSION of the earth up in the heaven where God’s throne and the constellations telling the story of our Messiah are located.


Rather than me explaining what the precession of the earth means, I chose to use a short 6-minute video.


THE WOBBLING EARTH!


And at the end of this study, I will give a link to the BIBLICAL Hebrew meanings of the constellations. But for now, let us see what the Bible says about the WOBBLING earth.


Please read Isaiah 24:20.


The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, (Or the earth shall WOBBLE like a drunkard) and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.”


Also, read Isaiah 13:13.  


“Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall REMOVE OUT of her PLACE, (Or out of her SPOT)  in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.”


Job 9:6.  


“Which shakes the earth OUT OF her PLACE,  (Or out of her SPOT) and the pillars thereof tremble.”


Job 26:7.  


“He stretches out the north over the empty place, and HANGS (Or God SUSPENDS) the earth upon NOTHING.”


In other words, the earth is NOT SITTING on a LITERAL structural foundation or some LITERAL structural pillars like “flat earthers” claim. But rather God has SUSPENDED the earth upon NOTHING in the expanse of Outerspace. This ONE verse alone proves that the INTERPRETATION of the earth SITTING on a LITERAL structural foundation is in ERROR because God's word does NOT CONTRADICT itself Let us move on to possibility number six.


#6. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean that the earth is a SPHERE that is rotating on its axis and the spherical earth is revolving around the sun. 


Personally, I believe that the Bible ITSELF teaches us that the earth is a SPHERE. There are many extra-Biblical pieces of evidence that also SUPPORT the TRUTH of what the Bible itself teaches us about the earth being a GLOBE or SPHERICAL in shape. Now, many extra-Biblical pieces of evidence can be EXPLAINED away just like many verses of Scripture can be explained away or ignored. But if you are truly seeking the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God then you will see that I am NOT trying to twist any Scriptures to support my belief that the earth is a sphere. Rather, I am simply presenting to my readers, OTHER interpretations of the verses used by “flat earthers” to try and prove that the earth is flat. I also point out the ERRORS of the interpretation Scripture made by the “flat earthers” as well as the error of their model of the flat earth failing to meet the physical laws of our real genuine spherical earth that can be tested.

So then, let us take a CLOSER look at the three main verses that “flat earthers” use to try and prove that the earth is a FLAT CIRCLE as opposed to the CIRCULAR SPHERICAL earth. We will read the three verses first and then look up the meanings of the words.


Proverbs 8:27.


“When He (Almighty God the Father) prepared the heavens, I was there: when He set a COMPASS upon the face of the depth:” 


Isaiah 40:22.  


“It is he that sits upon the CIRCLE of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in:” 


Job 22:14.  


“Thick clouds are a covering to Him, (Speaking of Almighty God) that He seeth not; and he walks in the CIRCUIT of heaven.” 


All three of these Hebrew words that are translated as COMPASS, as CIRCLE, and as CIRCUIT clearly speak of the earth as being ROUND in shape. Now, I realize that a circle can also be a FLAT circle. And thus, the earth is described simply as the circle of the earth does not PROVE beyond any shadow of a doubt that the earth is a SPHERE. But there is more Biblical evidence in these three verses that describe the earth as TURNING. And, according to “flat earthers”, the flat earth does NOT MOVE.

Let us read the first verse again and then we will dig into Proverbs 8:27 by looking up the meanings of the Hebrew words.

Proverbs 8:27.


“When He prepared the heavens, I was there: when He set a COMPASS upon the face of the depth:” 


Here is the same verse with the Strong’s numbers.


Proverbs 8:27. 


“When He (Almighty God the Father) prepared H3559 the heavens, H8064 I H589 was there: H8033 when He (Speaking of Almighty God) set H2710 a COMPASS H2329 upon H5921 the face H6440 of the depth: H8415


The words that we will be looking at more closely I have emphasized with different colors. 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. In other words, I will skip over the meaning of the Hebrew word as God being a SCRIBE and come back to it later on in part four of this study called “IS THE EARTH SITTING ON A FOUNDATION? where we will use the meaning of God being a SCRIBE and FOUNDER of the earth to show that the TRUE meaning of the verses that say the FOUNDATION of the earth simply means God founding the BLUEPRINT of what will take place on the earth. 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.


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 is called 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 SAME Hebrew word that is used in Isaiah 40:22 AND in Job 22:14 which we will look at shortly. So the SAME meaning also applies to ALL THREE verses 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 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 the vast expanse or depth of OUTER SPACE, the entire universe. The abyss is also used to refer to the vast depth 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.


Proverbs 8:27.


“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:” 


We already covered Isaiah 40:22 but in case you forgot let me refresh your memory. So does the Bible ITSELF teach us that God's throne sits ON the earth whether it is flat or spherical? NO! Absolutely not! Simply read the following verses that have no need to be interpreted. First of all, the Hebrew word translated as “UPON” in Isaiah 40:22 also means ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth.


Psalm 115:16.  


“The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth has he given to the children of men.”


Please notice the phrase “The HEAVEN, even the HEAVENS is the LORD’S. The first word heaven is singular and the second word heaven is plural which means that Yahweh’s throne where he SITS in the THIRD heaven ABOVE the CIRCLE of the earth in the HEIGHT of the STARS.


This brings us to the third verse which to me, describes God’s throne as being on God’s OWN CIRCLE up in heaven it the HEIGHT of the STARS. Let us go ahead as read this third verse in its context so you can see the true meaning of Job 22:14 easier.


Please read Job 22:12-14.


Is not God IN the HEIGHT of heaven? and behold the HEIGHT of the STARS, how HIGH they are! (So clearly, neither God nor the STARS are in the FIRST heaven of the layered atmosphere of the earth. But rather, God is ABOVE the earth in the HEIGHT of Heaven among the STARS. And our SUN is a small STAR but because it is closer than any other star it is a GREATER light to the earth that all the other STARS located in the EXPANSE of the second heaven that is ALSO called the FIRMAMENT)

13.  And you say, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud? 

14.  Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walks IN the CIRCUIT OF heaven.” 


In other words, God has his OWN CIRCLE up in heaven among the HEIGHT of the STARS that are really HIGH or far away up in heaven. Please read the study “WHERE IS GOD’S THRONE LOCATED IN HEAVEN?” But for now, let us continue will option number seven.


#7. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean a combination of more than just one of these POSSIBLE meanings.


And I myself have concluded that possibilities number 3,5, and 6 describe the earth as a SPHERE with God’s throne sitting ABOVE the earth AND the imaginary CIRCLE of the earth that is scribed in heaven in the HEIGHT of the stars which tell the story of our Messiah in the pictures of the CONSTELLATIONS. 


#3. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean the circle of the ARCH of the firmament over the spherical earth. 

Remember that God called the firmament HEAVEN and that means both the ATMOSPHERE of the earth itself AND the higher heaven of Outerspace where all the HOST of heaven are set. In other words, that is the ARCH in the sky during the day. And there is the HIGHER ARCH in the sky at night.


#5. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean an imaginary circle above the spherical earth being traced by the north pole as the earth rotates upon its tilted axis which is called the PRECESSION of the earth up in the heaven where God’s throne and the constellations telling the story of our Messiah are located.


Possibility number 4 does NOT work because according to ALL “flat earther” the flat earth is STATIONARY and it does NOT rotate on a tilted axis. BUT possibility #5 does work in our real genuine SPHERICAL earth that does indeed scribe and imaginary CIRCLE in the stars in the second heaven.


#6. This phrase “the CIRCLE of the earth” might mean that the earth is a SPHERE that is revolving on its axis and the spherical earth is revolving around the sun.


Now, the ONLY argument that “flat earthers” have against a CIRCLE being a SPHERE is Isaiah 22:18 which uses a Hebrew word translated as a BALL.


Isaiah 22:18.  


“He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a BALL into a large country: there shall you die, and there the chariots of your glory shall be the shame of your lord's house.” 


You see, “flat earthers” argue that since God INSPIRED Isaiah to use the Hebrew word for BALL here in Isaiah 22:18 which is a perfect description of the SPHERICAL earth then WHY did God NOT inspire Isaiah to use this same Hebrew word in Isaiah 40:22.

To ME, the answer is simple. For you see, a BALL would not FIT the description of the IMAGINARY CIRCLE inscribed in heaven by the PRECESSION of the earth. So God used another Hebrew word for CIRCLE, COMPASS, and CIRCUIT to describe the SPHERICAL earth, the IMAGINARY circle pointing to the COMPASSING of the CONSTELLATIONS in the STARS, and the CIRCUIT in heaven where God’s THRONE is located ABOVE both the sphere of the earth and the compass of the constellations around the spherical earth. For you see, God's THRONE is MOVABLE. God's throne can travel ANYWHERE in the entire universe. And the Hebrew word for BALL simply does not fit ALL the meanings that God desires to convey in ONE word.

Even if you are not a “flat earther” and you believe the earth is a sphere, I implore ALL my readers to watch the following video that explains the true SOUND Biblical meaning of the constellations as telling the story of the MESSIAH. This video is narrated by a Jewish Hebrew Christian who is trying to restore the TRUE Hebrew meanings of the constellations. He says that the pagans have perverted the pictures and the stories to fit their own pagan gods. Some of the pictures have been reversed to face the wrong way. And I believe that the constellation of Cepheus has been reversed as well because no man has seen the FACE of Yahweh. God covered the face of Moses so he could only see God’s BACK parts. And if the pictures of God sitting on his throne is reversed back to the original Hebrew picture then the other throne of Cappapeia would be at God’s RIGHT hand. And the Draco constellation of the dragon and serpent would be at God’s left side. Enjoy the video.


BIBLICAL ASTRONOMY


Before I end study 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 are links to two videos, very short vides on YouTube, just 2 minutes long showing 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.

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 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. And do not forget to watch the video with the Biblical Hebrew meanings and pictures of the constellations.
