I'm Going to Blow Your Mind - I Am a Proud Christian Flat Earther (I Kid You Not), Part 1
So I’ve been hotly researching the flat earth topic over the last few months and I know it has many people looking at me like I’m a complete nutcase. Well, I’m no stranger to being called a nutcase, so I figured why not just go full force into this. If this is truth, and I am convinced that it is, we all just need to get over our egos and get on board with this truth that we’ve been kept from for a very long time. If it’s not truth, I honestly pray nearly every night for the Lord to rebuke me and prevent me from spreading this any further. So far, He only seems to have shown me more and more, through His word, where the flat earth is true.
So I’m going to show you what I've found in God's word that supports the truth of the flat earth. If you don’t want your world to change, stop reading now. But if you are someone who stands for truth, no matter what, then I challenge you to keep reading.
First, I’ll tell you that, in spite of what I’ve been accused of, I have not come to this conclusion because of what some conspiracy theorist atheists have said. In fact, it was Christians who first brought this topic to my attention, it was Christians who brought it to my attention a second time a little later on, and it was a Christian who challenged me (I had to be challenged in order to look into it...whereas previously, I quickly ignored the topic) to look into it further and see what I come up with. I would never have looked so deeply into this, nor taken it seriously, if God’s word didn’t first prove to me that the revolving and spinning earth was something not found in scripture. Oh, people try to twist a few verses of scripture to make them say what they want them to say; but by and large, the entire expanse of scripture proves them to be either ignorant of the truth or flat out liars. I pray I am able to help you to see the truth of God’s creation through what I will show you below. I will add to this list of scriptural support as God continues to reveal more to me. If you are at all versed in this topic and you know of some scripture that I have failed to include here, please share them with me below.
I will NOT debate this with anyone. If you want to refute what you’ve read here, you're welcomed to do so, but do it in a spirit of truth and love or don’t do it at all. But I feel confident that once you’ve read through this exhaustive list, you will find the flat earth very difficult to refute from a scriptural point of view. Outside of scripture, no other “proof” holds up. God created the earth and if I can’t count on God to lay it out properly in His word, then I surely can’t rely on anything man can produce to do so.
So, with that, let’s get started:
The earth does not move
The most compelling and plainly worded scriptures relating to the flat earth are the ones that state that the earth is immovable. While this doesn’t speak to the shape of the earth specifically, it is a good starting point to help you understand that you’ve been lied to by modern science. Some of these verses, and if I’m not mistaken, there are numerous others, are as follows:
Psalms 93:1 - The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
Psalms 96:10 - Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
1 Chronicles 16:30 - Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved. (This verse does not just indicate the earth (the dry land) but the world, the inclusion of both the dry land and the seas.)
Psalms 104:5 - Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. (The earth does not move because God placed it on pillars.)
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.
Psalms 75:3 - The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
Someone said to me that the pillars spoken about in scripture are speaking about the axis of the earth. This is laughable and downright preposterous. The axis is a single object, but God never, ever says “pillar”, he always says “pillars”. How could one claim the pillars (plural) are the same as an axis (singular)? Even in the Samuel verse above the plural pronoun “them” is used to describe the pillars.
Here is the definition of a pillar from 1828 (I don’t trust modern definitions). It's a bit lengthy so I'll leave it for you to click on and read. And here is the definition of an axis from the same 1828 source.
An axis goes through something, things are placed upon pillars. God only indicates that the foundation, the pillars, will rise up one day, probably at the end. But not that they are going through the center of the earth right now. The earth is not placed upon an axis.
Isaiah 48:13 - Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together. (Foundations are laid at the bottom of something. It allows for things to be built upon it.)
The world is God’s footstool - footstools are flat
Isaiah 66:1 - Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
Acts 7:49 - Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
I’ve never seen a footstool that is in the shape of a sphere, nor would I want one like that. The footstool might very well have a circular shape, but it surely could not be a footstool if it were like a ball. The only way to get a ball shaped earth ideology out of the Bible is to imply that God is careless with His words. I would never be so bold as to proclaim such a thing.
The circle of the earth, not the ball of the earth
This is the one that has me the most perplexed. Even when I believed in a round earth, I always wondered why the word circle was used, because even I, in my indoctrinated state, knew that a circle was not a ball. People come up with all kinds of things to explain away this plain wording here. They add in meaning that is not even remotely implied in the verse. If God had meant that someone sits upon the appearance of the circle of the earth (because only when we are stretching our imaginations and removing the perspective of a sphere, can we say a sphere is a circle) He would have said that. But He didn’t. He simply said “he that sitteth on the circle of the earth.” (Isaiah 40:22)
I’m sorry, but the plain reading of scripture is simply that Isaiah 40:22 states the earth is a circle, not a ball. It is clear that Isaiah is definitely not talking about a spherical shaped object here because just a few chapters back, in Isaiah 22:18, he talks about a ball but the context is something other than the earth. (God will toss the wicked like a ball.) So if Isaiah wanted to convey that the earth is a ball-shaped sphere, no doubt he would have used the same word in Isaiah 40 that he used in Isaiah 22. Yet he didn't. The word used in Isaiah 40 is never translated in the Bible as a sphere, but always as a "circuit, circle, or compass". Neither of these things are spheres, but rather flat, circular disks.
What I find fishy is that concordances will say that the word in Isaiah 40 can be translated as "sphere", yet nowhere in the Bible is it translated as such, as we just discussed above. So, if it's never translated as sphere in the Bible, then why would a concordance make mention of the word sphere? I conclude that the concordance was written by someone who wanted to marry the Bible with "science" so that we could go on pretending the earth is shaped the way the scientists say that it is, rather than how God's Word says that it is.
Isaiah 22:18 - 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.
Isaiah 40:22 - 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:
Yes, the earth hangs upon nothing, but that’s because it sits upon pillars
Round-earthers claim that Job 26:7 proves we are moving through space. But this is adding in meaning that is not actually found in the scripture. Job 26:7 simply sates that the earth is hung on nothing. And this is true because it's placed, instead, on pillars. (Covered above.) This verse does not imply movement of any kind.
Job 26:7 - He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. (I wonder why God never seems to mention the south in scripture when talking about creation? On a flat earth model, the north is either directly up towards Heaven, or it’s the middle of the map directly below Polaris. The south pole, as we know it, does not exist.)
Both the sun and moon move
Psalms 104:19 - He appointed the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth his going down.
Ecclesiastes 1:5 - The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. (It rushes back to the place where it rose.)
Joshua 10:12 - 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. 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. (Joshua not only told the sun and moon to stand still, but also told them WHERE to stand still! This canNOT happen with a moving globe without throwing people violently across the countryside as the 1000mph rotation comes to a sudden stop. Has anyone ever wondered how this happened so seemingly easily in Biblical times and yet people were able to walk away from the incident? I know we’re supposed to have faith, but God wants it to be a reasoned faith with evidence. This episode, in a round-earth model, flies in the face of that.)
Habakkuk 3:11 - The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear. (How can something stand still that doesn’t move? How can God get something so wrong when He knows these things don’t really move (alleging the round-earthers are correct)?)
Psalms 19:4 - Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. (The sun, moon, and stars are placed inside the firmament, much closer to us than we know.)
Ecclesiastes 1:5 makes it clear the sun moves and this makes perfect sense when we think of Joshua making the sun stand still. In a heliocentric, round-earth theory this is a ridiculous thought. But in a geocentric, flat earth model, this happens very easily.
In a round earth, which way is up?
In Daniel 4, we see there is a tree that grows straight up to Heaven and the entire world can see it. In a round world, which way is up (Heaven in the Bible is always up) and how would the entire world see a tree growing up from one spot in the world? Likewise, how would the entire world see Christ coming again in a round world? Oh we say things like, our ways are not God's ways and He'll make a way...but He already has...He's created a flat earth so when He comes the entire world will see it. It's not a problem at all in a flat earth model. This also goes for the angels in Revelation who stand on the corners of the earth. (Yes, the earth is a circle, but somewhere, probably on the outside of the circle, are four corners and it is from here that the angels are seen in Revelation 7.)
Daniel 4:10-11 - Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great. 11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth.
The sun, moon, and stars are closeby, inside the firmament and their purpose is for light
The Bible also states that God placed the sun, moon, and stars inside the firmament (the dome/tent covering the earth). Now a dome or tent only covers something that is more or less flat. It cannot realistically cover something that is a sphere. The only way this would work is if the sphere were inside the tent or dome, but then it is not really being covered, but rather it is being encompassed.
The heavenly bodies are not out in outer space, far, far away; they are right above us, and beyond said dome/tent is Heaven where God resides. God is so much closer than we think and He makes that amazing discovery so clear in His word! If God wants to be close to us, which no Christian would ever deny, then why would he make us a teeny tiny little speck inside a vast expanse of near nothingness, far, far, far away from where He lives in Heaven? More on God’s Heaven later.
Genesis 1:15, 17 - And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
Satan wants you to believe in a globular earth
You see, Satan has fooled the masses into believing this round-earth model because it fits so well with the godless Big Bang/Evolution theory. Yes, the round-earth/flat-earth discussion was waged and “won” long before the Big Bang and evolution were ever proposed, but doesn’t that make perfect sense? Satan laid the foundation for the world to be able to accept these other theories by convincing the world that the earth is round. If the people of the world knew that the earth was flat and stationary, no one would ever consider believing in the Big Bang or Evolution. Those theories would quickly crumble and the only thing left for man to look to in order to find out who we are and what's going on with our earth is God's word (or other ancient beliefs which get some parts right, but only because they imitate God’s word). Satan has effectively deceived an entire world, including faithful Christians, to deny God's word on the matter of who we are, where we are, and what's going on around us. He's a clever and formidable foe. We can never underestimate him.
The lies we accept concerning science and tradition always seems to go back to sun-god worship
Consider the fact that Satan has fooled everyone into believing the sun is the center of our solar system and that everything revolves around it. That, alone, should be enough to get any intelligent Christian's red flags popping up! Basically the entire world is fooled into placing the sun (sun-god worship) in a central place in our plane of understanding, when God never did any such thing! God made us the center of everything (actually, He made Himself the center, with us right below Him, as scripture states! Psalms 8:4-5). I don't even think there is a universe, there is only the little dome or tent cover with a flat earth underneath it, set upon pillars, directly below Heaven and directly above Sheol. We are not one of many planets floating around the universe, we ARE the universe! Now doesn't this fit so much better with the nature of the God we know than some mindless idea that we are only one of many worlds floating around in many gazillion miles of nothingness, insignificant and inconsequential?
This is a good place to pause and let you digest what you've read so far. When you've taken the time to consider all of the above, please continue reading Part 2 which will be published in the next day or two.
Do you know, if you were to die today, whether or not you'll go to be with Christ after you die? Are you 100% and completely assured of your salvation? If not, please take the time to read this salvation message today. There is nothing more important than giving your life to Christ and securing your place in eternity. I pray the Holy Spirit leads you to a personal relationship with Christ today, and I pray that you follow with a willing heart wherever the Holy Spirit leads you.
