The earth is not a spinning ball but flat and the Bible proves that.
Truth is independent of opinion. By its very definition, Truth is intolerant of error, every aspect petitioning the conscience for acknowledgement. The individual however, holds the key to admission or rejection.—-Heavy on the Heart.
We are going to look at so many verses that will prove to you that the writers of the Bible were well informed about the structure of the world and were never confused for a second.
THE EARTH IS IMMOVABLE
1Ch 16:30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
Psa 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.
Psa 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.
Psa 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Psa 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
The Bible is very clear, The earth’s foundation laid by God cannot be moved forever. This is just the first point. The earth is not spinning around the sun, it is stationary…now look at the image below carefully as we get to the next point.
Gen 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Gen 1:7 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.
Gen 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
It cannot be more clear that there is water below and above with a Firmament separating the two.
Firmament is defined as vault of heaven supporting waters above.
Psa 148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens
Isa 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
The firmament is like a roof above the earth.
HEAVENLY BODIES WERE PLACED INSIDE THE FIRMAMENT
The sun is not a million years away but inside this firmament. Look at the image above again as we read these verses.
Gen 1:14 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:
Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Gen 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
Isa 11:12 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.
Rev 7:1 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.
Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Does those verses make any sense with a ball earth?
Ever seen how a buildings are done? With foundations and columns going deep into the ground? Well the earth has a foundation too!
1Sa 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.
Job 9:6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
Psa 75:3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
So far, what we have seen, the earth is immovable, with a firmament right above it that separates water from below and above. That the sun and moon are within this firmament and that the earth has a solid foundation laid of pillars by God. Clearly the image above is human imagination….let’s go further.
SUN MOVES AROUND THE EARTH
There are so many verses that discusses ‘motion’ of the sun but as we saw when we started, no verses speaks of the motion the earth. Why?
Think of a tent, the ground being the earth and the tent being the firmament. Now the sun is inside the tent (like a spot light on the ceiling) and rotates around a circuit to light up the earth. And Jesus says, in the new earth, the sun will be no more as His glory will light up the entire earth.
Gen_15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
Exo_22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbour’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
Lev_22:7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his food.
Jos_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.
Jos_10:13 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
Using the example of Joshua above, if the earth was spinning around the sun, would Joshua not have asked the Lord to stop the motion of the earth? Yet we see, the motion of the sun was stopped.
2Ki 20:9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
2Ki 20:10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.
2Ki 20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.
Psa_104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
Psa_113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name
is to be praised.
What does it mean the Shadow was brought backwards? It means the sun moved back in it’s circuit not the earth!
Rev_21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
There are more than 150 verses that speak of the motion of the sun in the Bible. NONE speaks of the motion of the earth.
