Circle or Ball Earth?
My Beloved Brother/Sister;
Remember, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
1. Flat or Ball Earth?
What is the Firmament?
6 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
***This may be challenging for some to accept, but God placed a (firmament- רָקִיעַ (raqia)- extended surface (solid), expanse,) in the (midst תָּוֶךְ (tāwekĕ)- middle, among(-st), with(-in), between) the (waters - מַיִם (maiim)- waters. Exodus 14:22 gives a good example of how the words (midst) and (water) are used: (“And the children of Israel went into the midst- תָּוֶךְ (tāwekĕ) of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters- מַיִם (maiim) were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.”). This (firmament) is what supports the (waters) above.
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.”
***God (made- עָשָׂה (`asah)- to do, fashion, accomplish, make) the (firmament- רָקִיעַ (raqia)- extended surface (solid), expanse), and (divided- בָּדַל (badal)- to divide, to separate) the waters. Here is an example of the Hebrew word בָּדַל (badal) in Exodus 26:33 (“And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide- בָּדַל (badal) unto you between the holy place and the most holy.”). God divided the (waters - מַיִם (maiim)- waters); which were under the firmament from the waters above the firmament. Here is an example of the Hebrew word (waters - מַיִם (maiim) in Genesis 8:7 (“And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters- מַיִם (maiim) were dried up from off the earth.”). The word (under) is the Hebrew word- תַּחַת (tachath)- under, beneath). The word (above) is the Hebrew word עַל (`al)- above, over). and it was so.
8 “And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”
***The word (Heaven) is the Hebrew word שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaven, heavens, sky, visible heavens); As far as the word of God tells, there are three heavens (see 2 Corinthians 12:2 (“I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago,... such an one caught up to the third heaven.”) Behold, the (firmament רָקִיעַ (raqia)- extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament) was made in the second day, before the sun, moon, and stars. Furthermore, the (firmament) is called (Heaven). Did you know that the Hebrew word שָׁמַיִם (shamayin) is also used for the word (air) 21 other times? consider the following verse: Genesis 1:28 (“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaven, heavens, sky, visible heavens), and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”).
14 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:
***The word (in) is monumental, because (in) is the opposite of out. The (lights- מָאוֹר (maor)- light giver, luminary) were placed inside the (firmament רָקִיעַ (raqia)- extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament) of (heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaven, heavens, sky, visible heavens); and not: on, over, out, or upon the (firmament). The (firmament) was made in the second day, see verse (8): (“And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”) Notice, these (lights) were placed (in) the (heaven) after the (firmament) was made. Again, this verse alone debunks NASA's theory that the earth was created after the the sun. ***Fact: The sun and the moon were first called; (lights). The word (sun) is the Hebrew word שֶׁמֶשׁ (shemesh)- ministrant, sun). Here is a verse that shows the correlation between (light) and (sun) in Jeremiah 31:35 (“Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun- שֶׁמֶשׁ (shemesh)- ministrant, sun) for a light- אוֹר (or)- light, lighting) by day, and the ordinances- חֻקָּה (chuqqah)- statute, ordinance, limit, enactment, something prescribed) of the moon- יָרֵחַ (yareach)- moon, wandering) and of the stars for a light- אוֹר (or)- light, lightning) by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:”).
15 “And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.”
***Take notice of these two key words (in) and (upon). As we already discussed, the word (in) implies inside. (them- the greater light and the lesser light) were to be (for) (lights- מָאוֹר (maor)- light giver, luminary) (in) the (firmament) of (heaven) to give (light- אוֹר (or)- light, lighting) (upon) the (earth- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth). Here is an example of the Hebrew word earth- אֶרֶץ (erets) in Genesis 1:10 (“And God called the dry land Earth- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth); and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.”)
The word (upon) means: up and on. Genesis 7:6 gives a clear example of the word (upon) (“And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.”). That means that these (lights) are up above us, and give (light) (upon) us. Did you notice the difference between the Hebrew words (lights- מָאוֹר (maor)- light giver, luminary) and (light- אוֹר (or)- light, lighting)?
(lights) is referring to the sun (greater light), moon (lesser light), and stars.
(light) is the what they give.
What are these lights?
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.”
***As we know, the word (lights) means: light giver, luminary. One is the (greater light)-the sun, and the (lesser light)-the moon. The words (light) as in; (greater light) and (lesser light) have the same Hebrew word מָאוֹר (maor)- light giver, luminary; it is same word that was used in Genesis 1:14 ("...Let there be lights- מָאוֹר (maor) in the firmament..."). Notice how these (lights) have intensity in their illumination (lighting), one is (greater- גָּדוֹל (gadol)- great, large (in magnitude and extent). Here is an example of the Hebrew word Numbers 14:12 (“I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater- גָּדוֹל (gadol) nation and mightier than they.” ) And the (lesser- קָטָן (qaton)- little, small). Here is an example of the Hebrew word קָטָן (qaton) in Ezekiel 43:14 (“And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser- קָטָן (qaton) settle even to the greater- גָּדוֹל (gadol) settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.”)
By now, you should be known that the (greater light) is the sun, and the (lesser light) is the moon. Unlike NASA, who lies to you, and tells you that the moon illuminates (gives light) by reason of the sun. As you can see, the (stars- כּוֹכָב (kokab)- star) were also made when the sun and moon and were made.
17 “And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,”
*** This false idea that the moon was apart of the earth many millions or billions of years ago is a blatant lie. As you can see, God (set- נָתַן (nathan)- to give, put, set) them (the sun, the moon , and the stars) in the (firmament- רָקִיעַ (raqia)- extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament) of (Heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaved up things, sky, visible heavens) (to give light- אוֹר (or)- to cause or give light, shine). As we can see, the (stars) are located (in) the (firmament) of (heaven); consider Genesis 15:5
(“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin), and tell the stars- כּוֹכָב (kokab), if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.”). In the new testament, the Greek word for (stars- plural) is ἄστρον (astron)- a constellation, star. Here is an example of the Greek word ἄστρον (astron) in Hebrews 11:12 (“Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars- ἀστήρ (astēr) of the sky- οὐρανός (ouranos)- Heaven) in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.”). Here is another example for the word (sky) in Matthew 16:2 (“He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky- οὐρανός (ouranos)- Heaven) is red.”). As you can see, the (stars) are not in "space", they are (in) the (firmament) of (heaven).
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.”
***These lights that God set in the firmament were to (rule- מָשַׁל (mashal)- to rule, have dominion, reign). This is why we are able to see the (light) of the sun over the day, and the (light) of the moon over the night.
As you can see, The word of God is not in harmony with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; who claims that the "solar system" is perfectly situated for life to thrive.
"Is there more proof in the scriptures that the firmament is a strong expanse?"
“Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?”
***The Hebrew word for (sky) is שַׁחַק (shachaq)- small dust, thin cloud. Here is an example of the word (sky) שַׁחַק (shachaq) in Deuteronomy 33:26 (“There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaven, heavens, sky, visible heavens) in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky- שַׁחַק (shachaq)- small dust, thin cloud.”) The word (heaven) in Deuteronomy 33:26 is the same word as in Genesis 1:8 (“And God called the firmament Heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayin)- heaven, heavens, sky, visible heavens..." ). What could possibly be (strong- חָזָק (chazaq)- strong, hard), and as a (molten יָצַק (yatsaq)- to cast, melt, pour, be firm) (looking glass רְאִי (rei)- looking glass, mirror)? the firmament (Heaven). Here is an example of the Hebrew word molten יָצַק (yatsaq)- to cast, melt, pour, be firm) in 1 Kings 7:23 “And he made a molten- יָצַק (yatsaq) sea- יָם (yam)- sea, lake, pool), ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.” Interestingly, the Hebrew word for (looking glass רְאִי (rei)- looking glass, mirror) is only found Job 37:18.
"We can now tie the knot, the firmament is an expanse that is strong as molten glass, firm, and it was made in the midst of the waters to separate the water above from the waters below. Furthermore, what proof is there that the sun is above the earth and not millions of miles away?"
12 “Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon, and thou Moon in the valley of Ajalon.”
*** In the context of scripture, there is a battle going on between the Amorites and the Isrealites. At one point, the LORD intervenes by casting down great stones from heaven to favor the Isrealites in the battle, which is one of the miracles that happened that day . Joshua then commands the sun and the moon to stand still. Furthermore, Joshua spoke this in the sight of the Isrealites, therefore, there were witnesses to this event. Notice, the (sun- שֶׁמֶשׁ (shemesh)- ministrant, sun) was commanded to stand (still- דָּמָם (damam)- be still, wait) (upon Gibeon- גִּבְעוֹן (Gib`own)- hill city, height. This is impossible with the heliocentric mode. And likewise, the (moon- יָרֵחַ (yareach)- moon, wandering) was commanded to stand still in the (valley of Ajalon).
13 “And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down, about a whole day.”
***The (sun- שֶׁמֶשׁ (shemesh)-ministrant, the sun) and the (moon) stood (still- דָּמָם (damam)- be still, wait)) upon the (Earth- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth). This super natural event was worked by the LORD through Joshua. Notice, the sun stood still (in-inside) the (midst-middle, amongst, withing) of (heaven- שָׁמַיִם (shamayim)- heaven, visible heavens, sky. The (sun) (hasted- אוּץ (uts)- to press, be pressed, make haste, urge) not to (go down בּוֹא (bo)- to go in) about a (whole- תָּמִים (tamim)- perfect, whole, complete, plain) day. Furthermore, the book of Jasher also bears testimony of this event. Did you notice the following key words: (stood, still, hasted, go)? this can only be said of something that moves.
14 “And there was no day like that, before it, or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.”
***This was a peculiar day.
"Now, is the sun above us or million of miles away from us?, did you know that the words "under the sun" appear 27 times in the Bible. Below are just a few examples.
“What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?”
***Sometimes a careful examination of the scripture will point out a great truth when sought carefully.
“I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.”
“All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.”
“And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven."
***As oppose to saying (under the sun), this verse amplifies it by saying: (under) the (whole) heaven. And as you can see, the context is about the (sun), (moon), and (stars). Reader, notice the word (all), this word is crucial to understand; the word (all) is confirming that (the sun, and the moon, and the stars) are (all the host- צָבָא (tsaba)- host) of (heaven). Here is an example of the Hebrew word host- צָבָא (tsaba) in Numbers 31:48 (“And the officers which were over thousands of the host- צָבָא (tsaba), the captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses:”). As you can see, the Hebrew word host- צָבָא (tsaba) means: many; this includes the (stars), the (moon), and the (sun). Have you ever noticed that the word of God never mentions the following: planets, wormholes, galaxies, black holes, comets, asteroids, aliens or any other nonsense; how can there be such things, when water is above the firmament. Lies of the devil, he distorts the truth, he inverts what is of God.
Now, someone might say that the word "planets" can be found in 2 Kings 23:5 (“And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.”). The Hebrew word for (planets) is מַזָּלוֹת (mazzalah)- constellations); the (stars) make up the constellations in the (heaven). Look at the 1611, there is a double dash (//) before (//Planets,..."). Now look at the side margin, it reads: // Or, twelve signes or constellations. Also, below is an exert of the Hebrew text for 2 Kings 23:5.
"is the Earth a ball, a circle, or round?"
“He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.”
***This is the only verse in the entire Bible that has the word (ball- דּוּר (dur)- anything round). Notice the word (like); it is a word used to compare the likeness/ similarities /resemblance /characteristics of one thing with another. The comparison here is that of a tumbleweed that travels across the barren and plain land. In this verse, Isaiah is telling a man what the LORD is going to do with him; he is going to (turn- צָנַף (tsanaph)- roll up, wind up) and (toss- צְנֵפָה (tsenephah)- winding, thing wrapped, ball) like a (ball) into a large country. Without getting into the back story of this verse, the main focus here is the use of the words: (turn),(toss) and (ball); as you can see, the definition of a (ball) is that of something that (turns) and (tosses). The "alleged" heliocentric model states that the Earth is a sphere/ globe/ oblate, etc. or, in other words, it is an object that can (turn) and (toss) in space like a (ball). For now, it is only relevant to keep in remembrance this information.
"Now, what is a circle according to the scriptures?"
“It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:”
***Isaiah 40:22 is the only verse in the entire bible where the word (circle) can be found. And furthermore, both, the words: (ball) and (circle) were written by the same author (Isaiah). As we can see from the context of this verse, the LORD sits (upon), that is, up (above) and on (over) the (circle- חוּג (chug)- arch/compass/circuit/vault) of the Earth. Genesis 7:6 gives a clear definition of the word (upon): (“And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.”). Furthermore, (the inhabitants) are described (as grasshoppers), meaning, he looks down upon us. Psalms 14:2 is a good cross reference: (“The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.”) As we can conclude, the word (circle) is not the same word as (ball).
Now, is the Earth round?
“But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:”
***Notice, the words (compassed- סָבַב (sabad)- to go round about, to march or walk around, go partly around, circle about) and (round- סָבַב (sabad)- to go round about, to march or walk around, go partly around, circle about), are synonymous; one strengthens the other. The back story of this verse is about Lot hosting two Angels, and the locals both (old and young) wanted to have their way with them, but Lot would not budge, so the locals (compassed) his house (round) about. Interestingly enough, we also get words like: around, surround and compass; which are also variations to the word (circle). In summary, neither the word (circle) nor the word (round) are synonymous to the word (ball). Lo, even the 1537 Matthew Bible agrees with 1 Samuel 2:8: "...for the pillers of the erth are the LORDES and hath sett the rounde worlde upon them..."
"Out of the three words examined: (ball), (circle), and (round), only two gave a supportive answer; the words (circle) and (round). These two words gave a straight and flat answer. Now, is the earth movable or stationary?"
“Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.”
***This whole verse is empathetic to the word (if), meaning, (if) "heaven above can be measured", and (if) "the foundations of the earth searched out beneath". In other words it is impossible for this to happen, because if it did happen, then the LORD would cast off all the seed of Israel, thus voiding other prophesies; which is not going to happen. The word (foundations) is the Hebrew מוֹסָדָה (mosadoth)- foundations, the act of laying a foundation) of the (earth אֶרֶץ- (erets)- earth, land ; notice, the word (foundations- is plural), that means there is more than one; the question is, what is the foundation? but before we answer this, we need to ask, where are these (foundations) located? they are located (beneath מַטָּה (mattah)- beneath, bow, downwards, below) the earth. Compare the next verse.
1 Samuel 2:8
“He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and he hath set the world upon them.”
***Now we have a bigger picture. The word (Pillars) is the Hebrew מָצוּק (matsuq)-any thing fixed, a fixture); Behold, this is the only verse in the entire bible that uses this unique Hebrew word to describe the (pillars) of the earth as fixed. The Hebrew word for (earth) is אֶרֶץ- (erets)- earth, land. Did you notice that the (pillars) are the (LORD'S- יְהֹוָה ("the existing One"). And the LORD has set the (world- תֵּבֵל (tebel)- habitable world) upon-(up) and (on) the (Pillars).
Next, do these (pillars) move/rotate/turn?
“Who laid the foundations of the earth: that it should not be removed for ever.”
***The Psalmist is praising the LORD for his wonderful providence. As we have learned in the previous verse, the (world) is set on (pillars). The Hebrew word for (foundations) is מָכוֹן (makon)- base, fixed or established place). These (foundations), cannot be (removed מוּר (mur)- to exchange, change, to totter, shake, slip). Here is an example of the Hebrew word מוּר (mur) in Psalms 46:2 (“Therefore will not we fear, though the earth- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth) be removed מוּר (mur)- to exchange, change, to totter, shake, slip), and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;”). Furthermore, the word (for ever) is the Hebrew word לְעוֹלָם וַעֵד (leolam va-ed)- to the age and onward). Here is an example of the Hebrew word לְעוֹלָם וַעֵד (leolam va-ed) in Psalms 10:16 (“The LORD is King for ever and ever- לְעוֹלָם וַעֵד (leolam va-ed)- to the age and onward): the heathen are perished out of his land.”)
As you can see, the (foundations of the earth) cannot be (removed) (forever). If you look at the kjv 1611, you will notice a symbol (+) before the words (Who laid the foundations..."); now look at the side margin and you will read the following: "Hebr. he hath founded the earth upon her bases" -this is a direct transliteration of the Hebrew text. Or, another way of reading Psalms 104:5 is:
“Who laid the bases of the earth..."
"Look, I shew you more"
4 “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”
***The LORD is speaking to Job.
5 “Who hath laid the measures-מֵמַד (memad)-measurement) thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line-קָו (qav)- rule, cord, line, measuring-line) upon it?”
6 “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;"
***Again, look closely at the word (Whereupon), it is composed of two words: (where (location) and (upon (over-on) are the (foundation(s)- אֶדֶן (eden)- base, pedestal, socket (strong, firm) (fastened- טָבַע (taba)- to be sunk, planted, pierce) to? As we can see, (fastened) means to secure.
Although we do not know the mystery of how the world is founded or secured, we can rest assure that it is held by strong (pillars) upon a (fastened) (foundation).
"Next question, is the earth a sphere or does it have corners?"
“And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
***The (earth- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth) has four (corners כָּנָף (kanaph)- wing, extremity, edge, winged, border, corner). Here another example of the word כָּנָף (kanaph) in Ezekiel 7:2 (“Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners- כָּנָף (kanaph)- wing, extremity, edge, winged, border, corner) of the land- אֶרֶץ (erets)- land, earth.”). Did you notice how both verses use the same Hebrew word for: (earth/land), and for (corners). With that been said, it is uncertain how, or what, or where are the extremities, edges, borders, or corners of the earth.
“Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line- קָו (qav)- line, rule, measuring-line) upon it?”
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.”
*** Now lets compare the Hebrew with the Greek for consistency. The Greek word for (corners) is γωνία (gōnia)- angle, corner). Here is an example of the Greek word γωνία (gōnia) in Matthew 6:5 (“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners- γωνία (gōnia)- angle, corner) of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”). As you can see in both verses, a (corner) is not symbolical, but rather, literal. If you look closely, there are (four): corners, angels, and winds.
“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
***In this verse, the Lord Jesus is telling his disciples that in the end time, his Angels will gather his (elect-ἐκλεκτός (eklektos)-picked out,chosen by God) from the four (winds- ἄνεμος (anemos)- wind, stream of air), from one (end) of (heaven- οὐρανός (ouranos)- heaven, sky, air) to the (other). The words (end) and (other) have the same Greek- ἄκρων (akrōn)- from point unto point. Here is an example of the Greek word ἄκρων (akrōn) in Luke 16:24 (“And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip- ἄκρων (akrōn)- point, tip) of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”). As you can see, the word (akrōn) means: "end, tip, point." Even the verse tells you that it is from (one) end to the (other); this means the ends are opposite to each other. Unlike the ball earth, which goes round and round; it has no (ends).
Here is one more reason why the globe earth is a false...
1 Thessalonians 4:16
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:”
***My Christian brother, Tell me, for whom is the Lord Jesus returning, if NASA colonizes the moon or "Mars"? are we suppose to believe that God is going to permit men to procreate in other "planets"? Does not Matthew 24:31 say that (“...he (Jesus) shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect-ἐκλεκτός (eklektos)-picked out, chosen by God) from the four winds, from one end- ἄκρων (akrōn)- from point unto point) of heaven to the other- ἄκρων (akrōn)-from point unto point.”)? Look, here is another verse; Revelation 1:7 (“Behold, he cometh 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.”) Furthermore, does not Genesis 1:27 say that we are created in the image of God? (“So God created man- אָדָם (adam)- man, human being in his own image- צֶלֶם (tselem)- image, likeness (of resemblance), in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”). Lo, Genesis 5:3 (“And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness- דְּמוּת (demuth)- resemblance, similitude) after his image- צֶלֶם (tselem)- image, likeness (of resemblance); and called his name Seth:”); Even our own children bare our (image) and (likeness).
Again, are we to believe that "aliens" exist out in some distant "galaxy"?
don't be deceived, satan is like a roaring lion, seeking to devour; he is a liar, and the father of lies. There is no such thing as
Humanity, will be present for the return of the
We conclude: the earth is a circle and not a ball, it is fixed, stable, and fastened. The earth is not tossing and turning. It is held by strong pillars, and not by the force of the sun. The sun, the moon, and the stars revolve/orbit above the World, and not vice versa.
this was just a portion of the whole truth, for much more can be said about the earth. I hope this has been a blessing to your soul."
I have taught you (Not I, but the knowledge of God) who gives understanding to the simple.
As we already know, God in the Beginning created the the Earth and the Heaven; this is the very first verse of the Bible. But there has been much debate as to what shape the Earth has. On the one hand, there is the belief that the sun and moon orbit the earth, and the earth is motionless and firm. On the other hand, there is the belief that the Earth is a sphere/planet and revolves around the sun alongside with other similar planets.
