"He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him" (Proverbs 18:13).
"...Let God be true, but every man a liar..." (Romans 3:4).
"There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD" (Proverbs 21:30).
"Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, LET HIM BECOME A FOOL, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness" (1 Corinthians 3:18-19).
My Paradigm Shift Back to the Bible
Like most true born-again Christians (who honestly believe and know the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of the God of gods our Creator Yahweh), I never considered the possibility that I really didn't believe ALL of the Bible. Though I must add, it really wasn’t willful unbelief, I had just been blinded to parts of the Bible by bad preaching and years of public school brainwashing.
You see, I was truly born again in 1979 in a small Baptist church. After falling away from God and church during my teenage years, I repented and fully rededicated my life to the Lord Jesus Christ in the summer of 1987. Shortly thereafter, I had a powerful open vision of Jesus Christ standing at the right hand of the glory of the Father in heaven and the wings of the Holy Spirit hovering over Him. It was during that encounter with God that He called me to the ministry and later commissioned me to be a prophet. I became a diligent student of the Bible and history in 1987.
Since that time, I have served as a youth pastor, single’s pastor, evangelist, teacher, church planter, and senior pastor of several churches. I have preached the gospel of Jesus Christ in Israel, the Island of Mauritius, Nigeria, and all over the United States. I have authored several books and received an honorary PhD (though in 2002 and after teaching seminary students every morning for a month in Aba, Nigeria, my 15 years of very active and dedicated ministry including my book Grace Abuse as my “thesis” were the reasons the faculty and staff of Pilgrims University decided that I earned a PhD) in the Philosophy of International Evangelism and Missions. I have seen many saved, healed, baptized in the Holy Spirit, and delivered from demons in almost 30 years of ministry. In other words, I have believed and still believe the Bible to be the inspired words of Almighty God and I have endeavored to do what the Bible says over all these years. So, had anyone walked up to me and told me that I did believe everything written in the Bible, I would have vehemently denied that accusation.
However, on October 24, 2015, a Christian friend sent me a link to a video with this question, "And does firmament earth ring a bell?" I must admit that I didn't have any idea what he was talking about. But, over the last several years, the two of us have had some interesting discussions about Bible prophecy and end-time deception. Needless to say, I was very curious to find out what he was asking. So, I watched the video and I must admit that it didn't take long before I could sense the Holy Spirit moving upon me. As I watched the evidence presented and Scriptures that I had not studied out, I could not deny that I had allowed myself to be deceived by Satan’s most elaborate and well-planned deception. That day, my eyes were opened to some Biblical truths that had been common knowledge in the days of the Hebrew prophets.
Until that day in October 2015, it had not ever entered my mind that the accepted shape of the Earth as sphere and our modern understanding of the universe might be completely wrong. And even though I have never accepted the foolish scientific theories like evolution, panspermia, or alien progenitors, I didn't realize that I was trusting these same misguided scientists about the nature our cosmos. For some reason, I didn't question or consider that many of these scientists could be deceiving us or just deceived themselves about the true nature of our world. Obviously, the continual brainwashing from my childhood about the "Blue Marble" Earth flying around the Sun and the sun, moon, stars and "planets" are far away in outer space had worked. Those lies were so deeply rooted in my psyche that I could not see what the Bible was actually saying about the true shape of the Earth and the true nature of our "universe" even after three decades of serious Bible study.
Of course, just the mention of the term "Flat Earth" causes an immediate knee-jerk reaction in most people. I'm sure that some people incredulously think, "Flat Earth?!! Surely this idiot does not believe the Earth is flat in 2016?" However, that is exactly what I mean. My eyes were opened to two of the most important truths of mankind: 1) the Earth is not a sphere/ball as we have been told for the last 500 years and 2) the Bible does say the Earth is a FLAT circle with and outer edge or boundary and covered by a molten glass-like dome called the “Firmament.”
I know all this sounds crazy at first, but these truths are taught in the Bible and some simple experiments prove the Earth is FLAT. According to the Bible, the Earth was created by God as a flat cube in which He engraved a circle boundary at the ends of the Earth to hold the oceans. And this flat plane that we know as the “...habitable part of the Earth” (Proverbs 8:31) is covered by God’s solid firmament dome that has a massive amount of water above it. Also, you will see the results of a very simple experiment that proves this life-changing truth that the Earth is flat just like the Bible told us thousands of years ago, so before you dismiss me as crazy, stupid, or a false teacher, please look at what the Bible ACTUALLY says through proper Biblical hermeneutics and what our experiment across Mobile Bay PROVED!
On April 30, 2016, we used an Orion telescope, a Nikon 900 zoom camera, the Pythagorean theorem (math confirmed by an engineer from LSU) and found ZERO curvature of the Earth.

Revival & Restoration of Truth
Believe it or not, but an awakening to the Biblical truth of our Earth and the nature of the cosmos is happening across the world. People of all walks of life are finally seeing through the lies and fake pictures/videos of "space agencies." Many people are buying powerful zoom cameras, telescopes and even weather balloons equipped with cameras to test the alleged curvature of the Earth. And like our little church did, many people have proven by the math and clear zoomed pictures/videos that the Earth is FLAT. And upon seeing this undeniable evidence, many people are realizing that the Bible had it right all along and they are returning to faith in the great God of Creation and Savior Jesus Christ.
Here is a testimony from Wes in South Carolina that was posted in the comment section of my first Flat Earth video on YouTube that we uploaded in May 2016:
"Dean Odle, I would like to thank you for this video. I recently found the God almost two months ago. I used to believe in the ancient astronaut theory and that we were a small speck in a huge universe hurdling through space. I came across a flat earth video on YouTube and decided to check it out because I was curious what the fuss was about. Since that video I researched for weeks on end why Nasa would be lying to everyone. I finally saw God's fingerprint when I was 100% convinced the Earth was flat and that everything we know has been a lie and that God's word is more true than we know. I cried when I found God. Why? Well I finally had understanding, life made since now. I no longer question God's word and if we are alone in the universe. I'm thankful for you and this video and to help as many people as we can realize the truth of God's word. I have subscribed to your channel and would like to attend through YouTube since I'm in South Carolina. I know so many people who cannot see the truth or that think I'm crazy but I know now that God's word is true and I believe he used the flat earth theory to show me that he is real before the end of days. He works in mysterious ways. I was brought up in a family that had several different beliefs so I never knew God as good as I wanted to. Please help me get to know him better and I appreciate you and everything you're doing! God Bless you and thank you!!!"
Then on August 7, 2016, I did the sermon, "God's Flat Earth V" and as usual we broadcast it LIVE through Blog Talk Radio, Mixlr and Facebook. Later Sunday afternoon at lunch after I had shared the Scriptures that teach a flat Earth, exposed more of NASA's lies, and gave a clear gospel message of what it takes to be forgiven by Jesus Christ and ready to go to heaven, my wife received this text message from an old friend who lives in another state:
"I have a friend of mine over today. He asked if he could watch a movie while I was in the kitchen cooking brunch. That was at 11:48 (or 10:48 AM our time which was just moments before we started the FGC service). I felt an overwhelming desire to listen in this am. So, I told him he could watch the movie after we listen to my pastor’s sermon. Ken is his name. He's 35 and addicted to meth. He got up off the couch and came into the kitchen and sat by the phone to listen. He hung on every word. After the prayer at the end he handed me his meth sack and asked me to get rid of it, he's totally excited about researching the flat earth stuff. And kept thanking me for making him listen to that. So, tell Dean really great job as always listening to God."
Cate testified on my video Longing for Revival, "I was woken up to the truth about flat earth whilst searching for the truth of this world. It has completely changed me. I am now Born Again and am studying The Holy Bible and have bought the series on DVD to listen to the Word Of God in the car and at home whenever I can. I am drawing close to Jesus in these last days. Unfortunately ,my family also think I am crazy and my husband has told my brother he thinks i have some sort of deluded personality disorder. It has become so difficult , as we have 4 children together. I am praying to God for strength."
Robert Martin testified on my Longing for Revival video, "You have no idea what a blessing your videos and MP3s are. I was a Christian slowly sinking into entertainment as my god. Rock music, endless movies, TV shows, reading The Lord Of The Rings again (3rd time), etc. My soul (mind) and spirit were becoming more and more filled with the garbage of this world as ENTERTAINMENT. All the old tricks of enjoying movies and music was fading and leaving me empty. I kept praying for God to draw me closer, but I continued to binge watch shows and enjoy falling asleep listening to ZZ Top, RUSH, and Van Halen. When I discovered the Flat Earth, Jesus woke me up and answered the "draw me closer" prayer. It was over. God was not OUTSIDE the universe in some DISTANT spiritual palace, he was only a few miles away (100-4000 or so?). He was close, VERY close. He was watching me. He wanted me to have a relationship with him, NOT my electronic devices. I was busted, exposed for the entertainment and worldly junkie I had become. I stumbled onto your channel, Pastor Dean Odle. God gave me a new direction. I became filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus became real to me. I started reading my Bible again. I read the book of Enoch. I started praying. Your sermons and Alexander Scourby's King James Bible MP3s replaced my rock music on my phone. I "broke up" with the Devil and gave him all of his stuff back (destroyed/burned over $4000 worth of stuff). My wife, family, and some friends think I am nuts. Others have been awakened by me and are GRATEFUL for the Flat Earth Revelation. Keep doing what you are doing EXPOSING (not ENTERTAINING, as a former addict of that sort, I KNOW the difference) the evils of our world. If you have not done so already, I think looking at THE TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION You Tube channel will be of help to you (RESEARCH) in these last days. I want to make the trip from Myrtle Beach, SC to you church soon. May Christ Jesus richly bless you this day and every day till we see him split the firmament and call us to his side. Amen."
Thus, it is evident that this Biblical truth of the Flat Earth is an answer to some lost souls out there. It set Wes and Cate free from the lies of Satan and he found Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He also found a new and strong faith in the Word of God. It also touched Ken and motivated him to stop doing Meth and start seeking God. So, don't think for a minute that this Flat Earth truth is not important or a salvation issue. For some, this is the answer they have been looking for and they need to find churches and Christians who are not ashamed of what the Bible has to say about all of this. I can't tell you how many people have thanked me for being the first pastor in a church setting that they have heard boldly preach these Biblical truths. I have heard from a Scientist/CEO who graduated from Rutgers, PhD in Political Science, a Fuller Seminary PhD, lawyers, engineers, an Army Ranger, a commercial pilot and many others who have been blessed and encouraged by the Scriptural presentation of God's Flat Earth & the Firmament of His Power videos and they are Flat Earthers. Literally, I have received hundreds of comments, emails, and phone calls from the over 600,000 views and thousands of audio listens to these messages. And I would estimate that over 95% of the response has been positive. Plus, I have discovered where other YouTubers have cloned parts of our Flat Earth video and those videos have hundreds of thousands of views. Several of them have over 500,000 views each.
In every true revival, there has always been a restoration of some lost or ignored or misunderstood truth in the Bible. The Reformation under Martin Luther restored the truth of justification by faith without needing the trappings and rituals of the Roman Catholic Church. The Azusa Street Revival of 1906 restored the truth of the gifts of the Holy Spirit to the church. And in these last days, where science has become a religion that is trying to take the place of God and the Bible, there are some truths being restored to the church and the world. And these truths threaten the entire system Satan has built over the last few centuries.
Some of the truths being restored for this next move of God are these: 1) The Earth is not a sphere but rather it is flat (as the Bible has stated for thousands of years). 2) It is covered by molten glass-like dome called the firmament. 3) Above that firmament is not the vacuum of space or stars and planets, rather there is a massive ocean of blue water (that can be seen through the glass-like dome). 4) The sun, moon and stars are not far away in "outer space." They are inside the firmament dome and move in a circuit over us just like the Bible told us in Genesis 1 and Psalm 19. 5) The Earth is stationary. That means the Earth is not spinning, orbiting the sun, or flying through a vast universe at 600,000 mph. 6) When the Lord God of the Bible made the Earth, He engraved a circle (not a ball) on the Flat Earth and that act made a boundary all the way around the outer edge to hold the oceans. That outer edge is what we call Antarctica and it is the ice wall at the "…ends of the Earth." 7) The North Pole is the only magnetic center of the circle of Earth. 8) There is not a South Pole which is why compasses don't work the same in the "Southern Hemisphere." 9) The planets are not other terrestrial spheres in space, but they are just the "wandering stars" that do not follow the same course as the other stars. 10) The stars are not giant suns that are millions of light years away, but rather, they are much smaller and much closer to us (which is why they can and do fall to Earth sometimes). 11) NASA and other government leaders and agencies all over the world have conspired to hide certain truths of God (particularly about creation) in an Antichrist plot against the Lord Jehovah and His Messiah Jesus Christ. 12) When Jesus Christ returns to this Earth very soon, the firmament sky will be rolled back like a scroll and the stars will fall like figs shaken from a fig tree by a mighty wind, “…and the kings of the Earth and the great men, and the rich men and the chief captains, and the mighty men will say to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb (Jesus Christ).”
When your eyes are opened to these truths, the phrases in the Bible like "the four corners of the Earth..." or "...the ends of the Earth..." or "…the stars of heaven fell unto the Earth" or "the moon will not give HER LIGHT..." finally make sense. They have always been there, but most people have read them through the colored glasses of Copernican heliocentric theory and relegate them to the convenient file cabinet of metaphors. Some have tried to fit the Bible account of creation and the descriptors of the nature of our cosmos into the molds of modern scientific theories and "discoveries." The level of pathetic desperation to merge modern cosmology with Biblical cosmology is amazing. However, like the Israelites of old, modern Christianity has tried to mix the philosophies and beliefs of the heathen with revelation of God in the Scriptures and the two don't mix.
However, what has shocked me the most are the many Christians who are not even open to the possibility that world governments may have lied to us and even suppressed discoveries that prove the Biblical truth about nature of creation. Some even get haughty and hostile before they have even heard the what the Bible REALLY says about these things. And then when someone actually presents the unfiltered teaching of the Scriptures and the hard evidence, many simply refuse to look at it. It causes too much stress to their brainwashed mind. Nevertheless, a person’s cognitive dissonance does not change the fact that these lies and the claims of "false science" against the Bible accounts of creation and the nature of the cosmos has turned more people away from believing in the One True God and His manifestation in the flesh Jesus Christ than any other deception. And as the church of Jesus Christ on Earth, we are not supposed to look the other way or ignore the lies Satan has used and is presently using to deceive billions of people. We are called to stand against those lies and expose them with Biblical truth and the physical evidence that is all around us. We are not supposed to hide our light (truth) under a bushel.
Some Christians have accosted me with their opinions that this Flat Earth, Bible cosmology discussion is not a salvation issue or it is a distraction from more important things, but they could not be more wrong. First of all, Jesus taught in John 8, that if we would continue in His Word, we would know the truth and the truth would set us free. He also said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Mathew 4:4). So, every word and every truth in the Bible is important and needful for mankind.
The Bible Teaches a Flat Earth
“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore, many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few” (Acts 17:10-12).
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
I must admit that the Lord had my attention when I saw that first Flat Earth video back in October 2015, but it was towards the end of the video where he gave most of the Scripture references. I immediately pulled out my Bible and read those passages. I began looking up key words in the passages in Hebrew and Greek and that was the icing on the cake. I could not deny that the Bible teaches a flat, stationary, non-rotating, non-orbiting Earth that is covered by a molten glass dome called the firmament with water above that firmament dome.
Over the next several months, I continued to study my Bible and research these truths about creation. The more I studied the Bible and researched NASA’s many lies and fake pictures, I only became more convinced that the Earth is truly FLAT! The first verse that I saw illustrated the Earth as a flat disk was Job 38:14 (that I will expound on later in this teaching). Then, on July 2, 2016, while preparing to preach a message on the Marriage Supper and the Millennial Reign, the Lord Jesus opened my eyes to another confirming passage about the shape of the Earth. As I read Revelation 20:9 I noticed an odd word was used to describe the Earth. It was a word that I had never looked up in the Strong's Greek Dictionary until that day. John by the Holy Spirit wrote:
"And they went up on the BREADTH of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them." I thought, "Why didn't he just say 'they went up on the earth?"
That is when I looked up the word "breadth" in the Strong's Greek Dictionary. It is #4114 which is the Greek word platos (which I immediately recognized looked like our word plateau) and the Strong's defined it as "width or breadth." However, the Strong's Greek Dictionary says "platos" comes from the root word #4116 which is the Greek word "platys" (pronounced pla-toos) and defines it as "SPREAD OUT FLAT (plot) i.e. broad: ---wide." Then I looked up the etymology of the word plateau elevated tract of relatively LEVEL land," from French plateau "table-land," from Old French platel (12c.) "FLAT piece of metal, wood, etc.," diminutive of plat "FLAT SURFACE OR THING," noun use of adjective plat "FLAT STRETCHED OUT" (12c.), perhaps from Vulgar Latin *plattus, from Greek platys "flat, wide, broad." So the origin of plateau which means flat land is from the Greek platys used in Revelation 20:9 to describe the earth. So just like the "pale horse" of Revelation 6 should have been translated "green horse" due to the original Greek word "chloros" meaning green, Revelation 20:9 should read, "And they went up on the FLAT EARTH."
Of course, there are always detractors and attempts to debunk anything that contradicts the status quo. One person said that the use of the Greek “γ?” or “ge” for “Earth” could mean land and because of that, I was not being honest with the text. But according to the Greek lexicon based on Thayer's and Smith's Bible Dictionary plus others this word “ge” “γ?” pronounced “ghay” means “…1) arable land 2) the ground, the earth as a standing place 3) the main land as opposed to the sea or water 4) the earth as a whole 5) the earth as opposed to the heavens 6) the inhabited earth, the abode of men and animals 7) a country, land enclosed within fixed boundaries, a tract of land, territory, region. The word “ge” was used 252 times in the KJV New Testament and was translated “Earth” in the King James Version 188 times. It was translated “land” only 42 times. And this Greek word “γ?” or “ge” is the word the translators of the Septuagint used for the Hebrew word “erets” or “Earth” in Genesis 1 and elsewhere. And “erets” according to Brown-Driver-Briggs' definition means, “…the whole Earth as opposed to part” which would be how it was used in Gensis 1 at the creation of the entire Earth. Thus, it is safe to say that “FLAT EARTH” is a legitimate translation/definition of the phrase “…breadth of the Earth” in Revelation 20:9.
Furthermore, the Bible says, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established” (1 Corinthians 13:1) Most scholars believe Job was one of the first books of the Bible to be written. The Book of Job has a lot of information about the true nature creation, the attributes of God, and the angelic host. And it also confirms the shape of the Earth and how God formed it.
"Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, ‘Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding’" (Job 38:1-4).
Thus, the clear context of Job 38 is God speaking about when He created the Earth. And in God's questioning of Job, He gives some clues about the creation of the Earth. A couple of those descriptors are in verses 13 and 14:
"That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It (the earth) is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment" (Job 38:13-14).
The Complete Jewish Bible translates Job 38:14 this way:
"Then the earth is changed like clay under a seal, until its colors are fixed like those of a garment."
The Amplified Bible translates Job 38:14 this way: "The earth is changed like clay into which a seal is pressed; And the things [of the earth] stand out like a [multi-colored] garment."
Both translations are correct because the Hebrew for "turned" means "changed" like I turned or “changed” these potatoes into potato pancakes by mashing them down." And for the self-appointed theologians out there, I did a word study through multiple lexicons and how the word was used in other verses in the Bible. For instance, the Gesenius’s Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon says “haphak” or “turn” here means to convert or to change. It uses Leviticus 13:3 as an example of “haphak” meaning to change something as when “…the hair in the plague is TURNED (haphak) white.” So, the word “turned” or “haphak” means to change something when the rest of the verse denotes something changing forms or character.
Furthermore, the word for "seal" in the original Hebrew is “chowtham” and means "a signature-ring, seal or signet." The Gesenius’s Lexicon defines it as a “…a seal, a seal-ring.” And these seal-rings were used to mash a piece of clay or wax FLAT with distinct features standing out to identify the sender. Thus, in Job 38:14, God gave the description to Job of how He formed/shaped the Earth during creation. God said the earth was changed as a lump of clay under a signet ring. That is a word picture that illustrates the earth being pressed down flat with the contours of the ring standing out (even the detail of an upturned edge as a border).
Circle Verses Ball & The Ends of the Earth
This is usually the place where Christians go, "No no no! Isaiah 40:22 talks about God sitting on the circle of the earth that means the earth is a sphere." However, a circle is not the same as a ball. In fact, God through the Prophet Isaiah gave us two passages that reveal there are two different Hebrew words for "circle" and "ball." And the Hebrew word for "ball" was never used in the Bible to describe the shape of the earth (see Isaiah 40:22 and 22:18).
The Hebrew word for "circle" is ???? chûwg, pronounced khoog; a circle: —circle, circuit, compass. The Hebrew word for "ball" in Isaiah 22:18 is ????? dûwr, pronounced dure; a circle, ball or pile: —ball, turn, round about." In Proverbs, the Lord revealed that He engraved a circle on the face of the deep when He was fashioning the earth. In the passage Wisdom is speaking and says:
"While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When He prepared the heavens, I was there: when He set a compass upon the face of the depth:" (Proverbs 8:26-27).
The Hebrew word for "set a compass" in this passage is châqaq, pronounced khaw-kak'; a primitive root; properly, to hack, i.e. ENGRAVE (Judges 5:14, to be a scribe simply); by implication, to enact (laws being CUT IN STONE or metal tablets).
The Amplified Bible translates Proverbs 8:27 this way:
“When He established the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; When He drew a circle upon the face of the deep."
The Complete Jewish Bible translates Proverbs 8:27 this way:
"When He established the heavens, I was there. When he drew the horizon’s circle on the deep."
According to the etymology of the word "horizon," it is much more than just the limits of our vision. Wikipedia defines the term horizon as follows: "The word horizon derives from the Greek "?ρ?ζων κ?κλος" horizon kyklos, "separating circle" from the verb ?ρ?ζω horizo, "to divide", "to separate" and that from "?ρος" (oros), "boundary, landmark." So, this verse shows that God drew/engraved the circle boundary of the Earth at creation. And that circle boundary of the Earth is the where the firmament dome comes down and meets the Earth just beyond the ice wall that we call Antarctica.
In the Flat Earth model, the North Pole is the only magnetic center of the circle (not for the reasons you have been taught) and Antarctica is the ice wall circle boundary that holds the oceans at the edge or ends of the earth. Many Bible passages confirm these truths as Word of God uses phrases like "…the ends of the earth" or the "…bounds (boundary limit) of their habitation" or as it is referred to in Proverbs 8, "...habitable part of His earth." All of which specifically indicate in the original Hebrew and Greek an edge, boundary, extremity of the earth. And these passages reveal that there is more land or earth beyond that boundary. From these Scriptures and other passages, I believe that God formed the earth originally as a square cube-like structure just like the description we have of New Jerusalem in Revelation. Then, God drew/engraved the circle boundary into the flat surface of that cube.
The Book of Job confirms this circle boundary:
"He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end" (Job 26:10).
The Gesenius’s Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon defines the word for “compassed” means “…to draw a circle with a compass.” That same lexicon also defines “bounds” in this verse “…as a defined limit.” Pslams 74:17 says, “Thou hast set all the borders of the Earth: thou hast made summer and winter.”The New Testament also mentions this circle boundary. In Acts 17:24-26, Paul wrote,
“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and HATH DETERMINED the times before appointed, and the BOUNDS of their habitation.”
The Greek word for “hath determined” is horion and is the root word for “horizon” which I showed earlier in this teaching means “…the separating circle boundary. The Strong’s Greek Dictionary defines “horion” as a “bound or limit; a boundary-line.” And the Greek word for “bounds” in this passage is horothesia which means “…a limit-placing, boundary-line. Thayer’s defines “bounds” as “…definite limit.” Of course, the habitation spoken of here is the habitation for all men which is the entire Earth, but there is a limit, a circle boundary line where men can go no further. It is called the ice wall of Antarctica that is the outside edge of the circle that God cut into the Earth It is also the place the solid firmament comes down and meets the Earth.
Enoch (whose book/prophecy is quoted in the Bible and found among the Dead Sea Scrolls) described that place after God showed it to him:
“I saw the treasuries of all the winds: I saw how He had furnished with them the whole creation and the firm foundations of the earth. And I saw the corner-stone of the earth: I saw the four winds which BEAR [the earth and] the FIRMAMENT of the heaven. 3. And I saw how the winds stretch out the vaults of heaven, and have their station between heaven and earth: these are the pillars of the heaven. I saw the winds of heaven which turn and bring the circumference of the sun and all the stars to their setting. I saw the winds on the earth carrying the clouds: I saw the paths of the angels. I SAW AT THE END OF THE EARTH THE FIRMAMENT OF HEAVEN ABOVE” (Enoch 18:1-5).
The Strong's Hebrew word for "…ends of the earth" in Deuteronomy 33:17 (which is also first use of the phrase in the Bible) is “ephec” means cessation, i.e. an end (especially of the Earth); often used adverb, NO FURTHER; also the ankle (in the dual), as being the EXTREMNITY of the leg or foot: —ankle.” This is also the Hebrew word "…for ends of the earth" in Psalms 72:8, “He shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from THE RIVER unto the ENDS of the Earth.” And this verse is definitely giving a specific place in the world as an end point of measurement. He didn’t just say, “…unto the ends of the Earth,” but specifically from THE RIVER to the extremity of the Earth where you can go no further. I won’t get into what river on Earth that verse is referring to, but it is a specific one that few know about.
Another Hebrew word used translated Qatseh an extremity: —× after, border, brim, brink, edge, end, (in-) finite, frontier, outmost coast, quarter, shore, (out-) side, × some, ut(-ter-) most (part). It is used in these verses and others:
"When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures" (Jeremiah 10:13).
"He causeth the vapours to ascend FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries" (Psalm 135:7).
In these passages, the Holy Spirit revealed that He causes the “vapours” to ascend from a specific place on the Earth. It is also interesting to note that these two verses mentioning the “…ends of the Earth…” also refer to God bringing “…the wind out of His treasuries (or store houses). It just so happens that Antarctica is documented as being the windiest place on the Earth. And when you discover that there is the Antarctica Treaty that restricts the average person from doing their own private expedition deep into Antarctica, then you should wonder, “What are they hiding?” I believe that Admiral Byrd in Operation Highjump 1946-1947 (parts still classified) found the edge and where the firmament dome meets the Earth. In addition to that, I discovered in my research that the firmament dome was photographed by George Rayner on a previous expedition to Antarctica 1928-1930. When you compare the sky in Rayner’s photographs of Antarctica, it is clear a couple catch the sky with the appearance of a solid, crystalline wall with texture (which sounds very much like Ezekiel’s description of the firmament having the appearance of “terrible crystal” in Ezekiel 1:22 KJV).
Some may want to cry “conspiracy theory” when anyone mentions that the governments of the world might be hiding things from us, but the Bible warned about this conspiracy to suppress the truth about creation. This knowledge of the firmament has been suppressed to keep people from believing the Bible and turning to Jesus Christ for salvation and eternal life. The Holy Spirit of God through King David and the Apostle Paul specifically warned us in Psalm 2 and Romans 1 that there would be a massive conspiracy of world leaders against the God of the Bible and His Messiah Jesus Christ that would include suppressing or holding back the truth about creation:
"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure" (Psalm 2:1-5).
"The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold (SUPRESS in Greek) the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; FOR GOD HATH SHEWED IT UNTO THEM. For the invisible things of him from the CREATION of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are WITHOUT EXCUSE:" (Romans 1:18-20).
Testing the Alleged Curvature of the Earth
“Prove (test) all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
NASA and modern astronomers claim we are living on an oblate spheroid 25,000 statute miles in equatorial circumference with a curvature of 7.935 inches to the mile, varying inversely as the square of the distance, meaning in 3 miles there is a declination of nearly 6 feet, in 30 miles 600 feet, in 300 miles 60,000 feet and so on. Therefore, if we wish to prove or disprove the validity of their convexity (curvature) claim, it is a fairly simple, straight-forward matter of measurements and calculations.
For example, the distance across the Irish Sea from the Isle of Man’s Douglas Harbor to Great Orme's Head in North Wales is 60 miles. If the Earth was a globe then the surface of the water between them would form a 60-mile arc, the center towering 1944 feet higher than the coastlines at either end! It is well-known and easily verifiable, however, that on a clear day, from a modest altitude of 100 feet, the Great Ormenaj’s Head is visible from Douglas" (The Flat Earth Conspiracy by Eric Dubay).
It was an example of this method of testing the alleged curvature that I saw in the first Flat Earth video that I watched. The video featured a picture of the Chicago skyline taken by photographer Josh Nowicki from a sand dune on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. The distance was approximately 56 miles. Of course, at that distance the all the buildings of the city of Chicago should have been hidden behind 1,873 feet of earth curvature with the camera sitting 6 feet above water level. The tallest building in Chicago is the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and stands at 1,451 feet. So, even the Willis Tower should have been hidden by 422 feet of earth curvature that the equivalent of a 40-story building. However, in the picture and a time lapse video the buildings of the Chicago skyline are visible almost to the ground. Some have tried to claim that the picture is a superior mirage, but superior mirages are always inverted as they are reflections of a boat or land mass off the atmospheric conditions just above the object. This viewing of Chicago by Josh Nowicki is not inverted and you can even see lights on in different windows of the skyscrapers and different color lights on the buildings.
After seeing this evidence and many other videos of people testing the curvature of the Earth, we started planning our own test to confirm the curvature or flatness of the Earth. So, on April 30, 2016, after a short vacation in Pensacola, Florida, me, my wife Nancy and Faith met one of my church elders Kevin Wilkinson with his family and an engineer with a degree from LSU by the name of Paul Kelly at North Beach Park in Fairhope, Alabama. Our plan was to test the curvature of the Earth across Mobile Bay toward the Port of Mobile and downtown Mobile, Alabama. It was a 12.5 to 13-mile test across the bay. We used a Nikon 900 Zoom camera and an Orion Telescope. The camera was on a tripod at about 6 feet above sea level and the telescope was at about 3-4 feet above sea level. And per the math (confirmed by our engineer and the Earth Curvature Calculator), there should have been between 66-74 feet (between 7 and 8 stories) hidden behind the curve of the Earth. However, as we our pictures and videos confirm, we could see the hull of ships sitting in the water from 13 miles away. We could see the bottoms of ship loading cranes all the way to the ground. We could even see where the hull of the USS Alabama met the water from 13 miles and that should be impossible if the Earth is a sphere with a 25,000-mile circumference.
So, we have irrefutable, measurable, repeatable, mathematical, proof that the Earth is flat. That is true science. We don’t not have to speculate, theorize, or trust any government agency. And this visual, mathematical proof that the Earth is not a sphere means that every alleged picture or video from “space” of the Earth being a sphere has been fake. And then, when you begin to look at the so-called pictures from NASA and other space agencies with some scrutiny, you find that they have obvious signs of forgery.
However, the smoking gun for the moon landing hoax is a piece of Apollo 11 video footage inadvertently sent to film-maker Bart Sibrel by NASA that clearly shows crew of Apollo 11 staging a deceptive picture of Earth during the Apollo 11 mission. In the documentary, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, the astronauts claimed to be over halfway to the moon or “130,000 miles out” when they turned off all the lights inside the command module and used a circular window to fake a long distance shot of the earth when they were actually in “low Earth orbit.”
Then, when you look at the photos of the Apollo moon missions, there is no doubt that it was all a giant hoax. They didn't have a blast crater under the LM from the 10,000 lb thrust engine that helped land them on the moon. There was zero dust on the legs and feet of the lunar lander when the feet were made like bowls. There was obvious photographic manipulation seen by camera crosshairs built into the cameras were discover behind astronauts and things they had on the moon surface. And of course, shadows going in different directions revealing multiple light sources. Then, you discover that NASA admits that almost all their photographs of the Earth are composites. Even Hubble's so-called "pictures" are "artists’ renditions." Then, you catch the bad Photoshop jobs that NASA puts forth as actual pictures (which a friend of mine did for himself). It is amazing how obvious it all becomes when you break free from the years of brainwashing.
During all my research and between sermons on the Biblical Flat Earth, one family in our church saw a TV commercial for Hennessey cognac. The commercial featured the Swiss/Belgium physicist, inventor, and explorer Dr. Auguste Piccard ascending high into the sky by balloon in an aluminum capsule that he designed. It shows Dr. Piccard viewing the Earth from that high altitude through a port hole in the capsule. The TV ad shows the capsule breaking through a barrier (the firmament) into water and then transitions to his grandson who explored the ocean depths.
That commercial caught the attention of their children (who saw it first) because they had heard my first message in November 2015 about God’s firmament and the waters above. And when I saw the video, I was amazed. The Illuminati in the media were once again tipping their hand as they do. Their message in imagery of the Hennessey commercial was clear, “We know the Earth is flat and covered by the firmament dome. And we know that there is water above the firmament and not the empty vacuum of space.” Of course in reality, Dr. Piccard and his assistant Paul Kipfer did not break through the firmament, but they were the first men to reach the stratosphere with a then record height of 51,775 feet or almost 10 miles above the Earth on May 27, 1931.
They showed me the video on a Sunday morning and that same evening I started researching Dr. Auguste Piccard. That is when I came across a short article in Popular Science Magazine from August 1931 about Piccard’s ascent to the stratosphere. It was entitled, Ten Miles High in an Airtight Balloon. As I read the article, I came to the most amazing part of the story,
“The story of their adventure surpasses fiction. During the ascent, the aluminum ball began to leak. They plugged it desperately with Vaseline and cotton waste, stopping the leak. In the first half hour, the balloon shot upward nine miles. Through portholes, the observers saw the earth through copper-colored, then bluish, haze. IT SEEMED A FLAT DISK WITH AN UPTURNED EDGE. At the ten-mile level the sky appeared a deep, dark blue. With observations complete, the observers tried to descend, but couldn't. While their oxygen tanks emptied, they floated aimlessly over Germany, Austria, and Italy. Cool evening air contracted the balloon's gas and brought them down on a glacier near Ober-Gurgl, Austria, with one hour's supply of oxygen to spare.”
I could hardly believe what I was reading. A famous scientist, inventor, explorer (who was the first man to go that high) described the shape of the Earth as “…a flat disk with an upturned edge.” That “upturned edge” part absolutely shows that Piccard did not see any curvature of the Earth toward the shape of a ball. I was so amazed by Dr. Piccard’s testimony of the shape of the Earth that I immediately did an internet search for a copy of the August 1931 edition of Popular Science Magazine and I found one for sale on eBay for $15.00 plus shipping. I bought it and within a week I had a copy of that magazine and the article about Piccard. I verified the article publicly. And after I shared this story and showed my copy of the magazine on my first Flat Earth YouTube video, the Piccard description of Earth has gone viral. Months after all this, I just saw another August 1931 edition of Popular Science Magazine for sale on eBay for a starting bid of $3,500.
Also, in my research, I came across a NASA document from 1988 that blew my mind. I verified this as well and downloaded it straight from nasa.gov. I took screen shots as well. You see, the truth always manages to creep out even from corrupt, lying government agencies like NASA. This 1988 NASA document is a reference manual on “The Derivation and Definition of a Linear Aircraft Model.” It states in the summary and the conclusion of all these mathematical equations:
"This report documents the derivation (mathematical origin) and definition of a linear aircraft model for a rigid aircraft of constant mass flying over a FLAT, NON-ROTATING EARTH."
In laymen’s terms, that means that aircraft are designed to fly over a FLAT, NON-ROTATING EARTH. So, if the Earth is a sphere/ball, why would any NASA engineer even bother or waste time writing a reference manual with pages and pages of mathematical equations on the derivation and definition of aircraft flying over a flat, non-rotating earth?
The Solid Firmament Dome & the Stationary Earth
“And God said, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.’ 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. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day” (Genesis 1:6-8).
“Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His power” (Psalm 150:1).
"Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is STRONG, and as (or like) a MOLTEN LOOKING GLASS?" (Job 37:18).
Genesis 1 clearly teaches the firmament was created to be strong enough to support a massive amount of water above it. Job 37:18 confirms this, "Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is STRONG, and as (or like) a MOLTEN LOOKING GLASS?" Ezekiel also described the firmament as having the "color" (which in Hebrew can be translated “outward appearance”) of "terrible crystal" stretched out like a tent over their heads (Ezekiel 1:22). The Hebrew word for "firmament" raqiya defined in multiple Hebrew lexicons as the “…extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament; expanse (base, support); firmament (of vault of heaven supporting waters above; considered by Hebrews as solid and supporting 'waters' above." This is also confirmed by Josephus when he wrote that God placed a "crystalline firmament" over the earth:
In Book I chapter I entitled “The Constitution of the World and the Disposition of the Elements” Josephus wrote:
“After this, on the second day, He (God) placed the heaven over the whole world, and separated it from the other parts; and He determined it should stand by itself. He also placed a crystalline [firmament] round it, and put together in a manner agreeable to the earth, and fitted it for giving moisture and rain, and for affording the advantage of dews…On the fourth day, He (God) adorned the heaven with the sun, the moon, and the other stars; and appointed them their courses, that the vicissitudes of the seasons might be clearly signified.”
Genesis 1:6-8 (BBE): “And God said, ‘Let there be a solid arch stretching over the waters, parting the waters from the waters.’ And God made the arch for a division between the waters which were under the arch and those which were over it: and it was so. And God gave the arch the name of Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.”
Genesis 1:6-8 (LEB): “And God said, ‘Let there be a vaulted dome in the midst of the waters, and let it cause a separation between the waters.’ So God made the vaulted dome, and he caused a separation between the waters which were under the vaulted dome and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome. And it was so. And God called the vaulted dome “heaven.” And there was evening, and there was morning, a second day.”
Genesis 1:6-8 (CJB): “Let there be a dome in the middle of the water; let it divide the water from the water.” God made the dome and divided the water under the dome from the water above the dome; that is how it was, and God called the dome Sky. So there was evening, and there was morning, a second day.”
Sadly, most people (and even most Christians) have chosen to believe known liars (governments) who want to control us and take our wealth by getting us to believe the lie that they are exploring something (outer space) that doesn’t exist. They have used the best propaganda tools and technology to turn us away from our Creator God and His Truth. And that’s why those of us who have seen behind the curtain, must expose this Wizard of Oz called science and his primary tool called NASA.
Concerning the waters above the firmament, I always heard it taught by creation scientists that those waters all came down during the flood of Noah. They taught that the firmament was some kind of water/vapor canopy and God condensed it and it fell to Earth, ceasing to exist. However, the Bible does not teach that. The Scriptures teach that the waters are still above the firmament. In Psalm 148:4-6, (1,500 years after the flood), the Holy Spirit said,
“Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, AND YE WATERS THAT BE ABOVE THE HEAVENS. Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass."
Additionally, Psalm 18:11 also confirms Psalm 148:4-6. Speaking of God's surroundings, "He (God) made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were DARK WATERS and thick clouds of the skies." So the Bible is clear about the waters above the firmament. And before anyone tries to jump on the word "were" in Psalm 18:11, we must remember that it is in italics in the KJV meaning it was not in the original Hebrew text but was added by the translators in an attempt to make it work in English. But this is a good example of why we must look at the original languages when studying the Bible and we must look at all the passages concerning a particular subject to “…rightly divide the word of truth.” The very Hebrew word used for heaven/sky is "shamayim." It contains the Hebrew word "mayim" which is the Hebrew word for "waters" and more specifically the dual or divided waters of Genesis 1 and the raqiya (solid firmament) is what divides them.
Concerning "outer space," God never mentions in the Scriptures that He made other terrestrial planets like earth. In fact, the Bible and the Book of Enoch calls the "planets" the wandering stars that did not keep their rightful place and course in the firmament. For that reason, God banished them to the dark waters. Ancient astronomers called the 7 visible planets the wandering stars as well. So what we call planets are just stars or lights we are seeing through the glass dome and a lot of water (which would affect so-called redshift and blueshift because light reacts much differently when shining through glass and water). For example, when light travels from air into water, it slows down, causing it to continue to travel at a different angle or direction. That slowdown of the light waves through the dark waters and the glass firmament would make people think that the light source being viewed is much farther away than it really is. Many people (including us) have tested this with the high zoom cameras pointed at Mars, Venus and stars. They are not what we have been told. They are all just lights in the sky and they are not millions of miles away from us. NASA's pictures are composites and "artist renditions" according to their own websites. And the ones they claim are real pictures are easily proven fakes under closer examination.
But let’s get back to the Bible about the glass dome firmament over our heads. As we saw in Genesis 1:6-8, God called the firmament HEAVEN. In Hebrew, Elohim called the raqiya shamayin. The Lord also said, “Heaven is my throne and Earth is foot stool.” Isaiah revealed that God “…sitteth upon the circle of the Earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers (as viewed from that top of the glass dome); that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out AS A TENT TO DWELL IN;” (Isaiah 40:22).
When Ezekiel saw the firmament that he called the “terrible crystal” stretched out over their heads, he went on to say, “And there was a voice from the firmament over their heads…and above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone…” and he saw the Lord and the glory of the Lord upon that throne (Ezekiel 1:22-28). Thus, God’s voice came from the firmament and Ezekiel saw His throne and the same glory and rainbow and fire that John saw in the book of Revelation. All of this reveals that God actually sits on this glass firmament and He views the Earth and its’ inhabitants from there. In other words, just above our heads, above the clouds and our sky (where the Freemason astronauts and scientists have told us is the empty vacuum of space) is the sea of glass called heaven and the very real throne of God Almighty the Lord Jesus Christ.
The book of Revelation confirms all of this about the glass before the throne of God:
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a SEA OF GLASS LIKE UNTO CRYSTAL: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind” (Revelation 4:1-6).
“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. And I saw as it were a SEA OF GLASS mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, STANDING ON THE SEA OF GLASS, having the harps of God” ( Revelation 15:1-2).
Furthermore, Genesis 1 declares the sun, moon and stars to be inside the firmament dome and water above that dome. He never mentions in the Scriptures that He made other terrestrial planets. In fact, the Bible and the Book of Enoch calls the "planets" the wandering stars (Jude). The sun is not 93 million miles away and the earth is not spinning or circling around the sun. In Psalm 19, the Holy Spirit revealed that the sun moves in a circuit like a man running a race. The Hebrew word "circuit" defined in the Strong's reads, "a revolution, that is, (of the sun) course, (of time) lapse: --circuit, come about." That clearly declares that the sun moves in a circular path over the earth. In addition, this truth about the sun, moon and stars moving in their courses was also confirmed by the book of Enoch (quoted in Jude and other parts of the Bible) and by Josephus. People across the world (including a photographer friend of Kevin who is not a flat earther) are taking videos and pictures clearing showing clouds behind the sun. Kevin and I also witnessed clouds behind the moon on the same night from different locations. This is also corroborated by Joshua commanding the sun and the moon to stand still in Joshua 10. The Bible does not say that Joshua commanded the earth to stop spinning.
In fact, the Bible says that the earth is "still and at rest" (Zechariah 1:11). And 1 Chronicles 16:30 declares, "Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be STABLE, that it be NOT MOVED." Psalm 93:1 says, "The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished (fixed), that it CANNOT BE MOVED."
And this truth of a stationary earth is continually confirmed by the fact that our view of the constellations has not changed in thousands of years even though modern scientists tell us that our solar system has been flying through the universe at tens of thousands mph for thousands of years. This truth about the sun, moon and stars moving in their courses was also confirmed by the book of Enoch (quoted in Jude and other parts of the Bible) and by Josephus. Jesus stated that the stars would fall to earth at His second coming. He didn't say "pieces of planets or asteroids" or any other thing concocted by man would fall to the earth...He said the "STARS" would fall to the earth. So, if stars are massive suns of fire much bigger than earth, then wouldn't take only one to fall and destroy the entire world? Thus, Biblical cosmology and modern Copernican cosmology are not the same and cannot be merged together or mutually true. Either the Bible has it wrong or modern scientists have it wrong when it comes to the shape of the earth, its movement, its position in the cosmos, and the nature of the sun, moon and stars. It cannot be both ways.
It is not possible to get perfect, circular, time-lapse star trails around Polaris if the Earth is spinning, orbiting the sun and flying through the universe for thousands of years in this spiral vortex as scientists claim.
The Foolishness of This World
“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world (KOSMOS), let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world (KOSMOS) is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain (1 Corinthians 3:18-20).
Nevertheless, the Christian who claims to believe the Bible but rejects the Bible passages that clearly teach a geocentric, flat earth with a solid, dome firmament, and an outer limit or edge, have a dilemma. Biblical cosmology and modern Copernican cosmology are not the same and cannot be merged together or be mutually true. And all the effort by Christians to reinterpret Scripture to fit modern scientific theories and false “discoveries” is foolishness and has not stopped the massive falling away from the faith due to modern scientific claims. Either the Bible has it wrong or modern scientists have it wrong when it comes to the shape of the earth, its movement, its position in the cosmos, and the nature of the sun, moon and stars. And once I saw the evidence of of NASA’s fake, Photoshopped pictures of earth and fake moon landings and the fact that NASA was started by Nazi scientists who were smuggled into America in Operation Paperclip, I realized (as I should have known before October 2015) that God's Word is true and anything that contradicts it is a lie.
In other words, a born again Christian can only come to one of two conclusions about the Bible's description of earth and the sun, moon, and stars: 1) either every word of Scripture was inspired by God and is the truth or 2) the writers of the Bible were not inspired by God, had limited knowledge of the creation, and wrote their primitive ideas about the earth and the sun, moon and stars (which is the unbelieving accusation of atheist scientists like Neil DeGrasse Tyson). I mean a Christian who believes that Joshua, Moses and David did not have correct revelation from God about His creation cannot say they believe in the Divine inspiration or inerrancy of Scripture. And claiming that certain Biblical descriptors like "the four corners of the earth" are just metaphors does not negate everything the Bible says about creation.
This is what Martin Luther had to say about it:
“There was mention of a certain new astrologer who wanted to prove that the earth moves and not the sky, the sun, and the moon. This would be as if somebody were riding on a cart or in a ship and imagined that he was standing still while the earth and the trees were moving. [Luther remarked] “So it goes now. Whoever wants to be clever must agree with nothing that others esteem. He must do something of his own. This is what that fellow does who wishes to turn the whole of astronomy upside down. Even in these things that are thrown into disorder I believe the Holy Scriptures, for Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth.”
“Indeed, it is more likely that the bodies of the stars, like that of the sun, are round, and that they are fastened to the firmament like globes of fire, to shed light at night, each according to its endowment and its creation…We Christians must be different from the philosophers [i.e. scientists] in the way we think about the causes of these things. And if some are beyond our comprehension (like those before us concerning the waters above the heavens), we must believe them and admit our lack of knowledge rather than either wickedly deny them or presumptuously interpret them in conformity with our understanding."
The sad truth is that most Christians dismiss these Scriptures and the truth of the Biblical flat, enclosed, stationary, geocentric cosmos because they fear what people will think of them. They don’t want to look foolish in the eyes of the world and other Christians. However, these Bible truths about creation can be easily proven by some telescopes, high zoom cameras, and math. Our church and many others have gone out and proven that there is zero curvature to the earth. Some have sent up high altitude weather balloons WITHOUT the Go-Pro type distorting/curve-producing fish-eye lenses and they have shown (like the late Auguste Piccard discovered in 1931) that the earth is not a sphere. And once you see that evidence for yourself, the reality of Satan’s big lie overwhelms you. You then realize that every alleged picture of earth, the moon landings, and multiple space agencies have lied to all of us just like God warned us they would in the Bible. And if churches and Christians everywhere would stop be ashamed of the Word of God and share the truth about God’s Flat Earth and the Firmament of His Power, there would be a mighty shaking of Satan’s kingdom across the world.
Sadly, Satan has achieved much of his plan to deceive the entire world. He has turned more people away from Jesus Christ and the Bible through the heliocentric lie. Then, Satan raised up NASA and other government agencies across the world to reinforce those lies and plant the seeds of a great end-time delusion. The last part of his plan is too orchestrate an alien disclosure and arrival of beings who will claim to be from another planet in outer space. The public has been set up for this deception for decades by scientists, movies, TV shows, and NASA Freemason astronauts. Of course, these “alien beings” will really be fallen angels and their offspring the Nephilim who will claim to be Extraterrestrials or ETs. And because most of the world has chosen to reject the truths and warnings of God in the Bible, they will believe these lies and follow Satan, the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and the coming UN world government.
The Bible revealed Satan's ENDGAME plan over 2000 years ago, in Daniel and Revelation. The plan has always been to create an antichrist world government and to end up with a cashless society where all buying and selling was controlled with something implanted in the hand or forehead (Rev. 13). And to get to that digital and cashless system, you would have to get rid of the US Dollar as the world reserve currency. The globalists traitors in the US government and powerful European families are in the final act in a long Illuminati plan to "kill the dollar" and collapse the economy so that Satan's world government (UN) and World Bank can take over and demand allegiance i.e. worship! And that will probably be expedited by causing a major war with Russia over Syria.
"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six" (Rev. 13:15-18).
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If ANY MAN worship the beast and his image, and RECEIVE HIS MARK in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with FIRE and BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up FOREVER and EVER: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus" (Rev. 14:9-12).
What Should You Do?
First, Christians need to accept the Bible truth about creation. And they need to realize that they are NOT going to be "raptured" out of here before the great tribulation or the mark of the beast. Revelation 20 is very clear that those who are killed for refusing to worship the beast or take his mark will be part of the first resurrection. And per Revelation 20 and what Jesus taught in John 5, there are only two resurrections: one to eternal life and the other to eternal damnation. The first resurrection or "the rapture" happens after the mark of the beast at the second coming of Jesus Christ just moments before the battle of Armageddon. The second resurrection will be a thousand years later and it will only contain the wicked dead and they will go from hell to the lake of fire. Also, just a simple reading of Matthew 24 shows that it is a chronological sequence of end-time events given by the Lord Jesus Christ and in it He plainly says that the rapture (the gathering together of His elect with the sound of a trumpet) will happen "...immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days." So, many Christians need to mentally and spiritually prepare to face what is coming with courage and a determination to witness for the Jesus Christ of the Bible through it all.
But, whatever you do please heed the warning of Revelation 13 & 14. No matter how bad things get in the days ahead, DO NOT take the "Mark of the Beast" in your hand or forehead, pledging allegiance to a world leader or world government. If you do, the Bible is clear that you will be eternally damned and suffer the torments of hell forever. We must be faithful to Jesus Christ all the way to end no matter what happens. He is our only hope and the ONLY TRUE SAVIOR! Don't be fooled by the false christs and “aliens” that are coming with their peace treaties and even amazing signs, wonders, and miracles. (See Matthew 24 & 2 Thess. 2).
Prayer for forgiveness and salvation only found in the Jesus Christ of the Bible:
“Lord Jesus I believe You are God Almighty the Creator Who came in the flesh. Jesus, You were born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, healed the sick and cast out demons, raised the dead, died on the cross bearing my sins, and rose from the dead three days later. To You Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I confess my sins and evil committed against You and others like (...be specific) even though I know that I don't deserve Your forgiveness. I choose to obey Your command to repent and change the way I live. I want to be a new person, washed in Your blood and born again by Your Holy Spirit. Please forgive me and make me new. Lord, from this point on I will become a disciple who learns, believes, and obeys Your Words in the Bible both Old and New Testaments. I give up my old life and habits and start a new one with You. Thank You for faith and the confirming witness of the Holy Spirit that I will receive. And Lord God give me strength to go through whatever trials, tests, suffering, rejection or persecution that I might face for boldly standing for the name of Jesus Christ and the Bible. Amen."
