While WLC continues to uphold the observance of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, which is at the heart of Yahuwah's moral law, the 10 Commandments, we no longer believe that the annual feast days are binding upon believers today. Still, though, we humbly encourage all to set time aside to commemorate the yearly feasts with solemnity and joy, and to learn from Yahuwah’s instructions concerning their observance under the Old Covenant. Doing so will surely be a blessing to you and your home, as you study the wonderful types and shadows that point to the exaltation of Messiah Yahushua as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of Yahuwah that takes away the sins of the world.

Biblical Evidence for the Flat Earth | Part 3

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

The Earth is flat:

In the book of Job, we find a most fascinating and insightful monologue.  In chapter 38, Yahuwah appears to Job and begins questioning Him.  One of the questions is especially pertinent to this study:

Hast thou perceived the breadth [H7338 - rachab] of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all. (Job 38:18, KJV)

The word, breadth, here is rachab (H7338), which means "breadth, broad or wide expanse."  (BDB Lexicon)  This seems like a perfectly legitimate question on a flat Earth.  It makes no sense at all, though, in the context of a spherical Earth.

In the Book of Daniel, the details of Nebuchadnezzar's prophetic dream indicate that the Earth is flat:

These were the visions of my head while on my bed: I was looking, and behold, A tree in the midst of the earth, And its height was great. The tree grew and became strong; Its height reached to the heavens, And it could be seen to the ends of all the earth. (Daniel 4:10-11, KJV)

Nebuchadnezzar said that he dreamed of a tree that grew so tall that it could "be seen to the ends of all the earth."  While this was just a dream, it is still indicative of a flat Earth, for only on a flat Earth would this be possible.  This concept would be an utter impossibility on a globe.


Flat Earth compared to Globe (Daniel 4 - Nebuchadnezzar's Dream)


Now, let us look to some of the glorious descriptions of the return of our loving Saviour:

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:12-17, KJV)

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. (Revelation 1:7, KJV)

According to the John the Revelator:

  1. The stars will fall to the Earth. (See Revelation 6:13.)  John, like the other prophets who expound on this topic, clearly did not believe that the stars were gigantic bodies (much larger than the earth) millions of miles away.  If this were the case, as modern astronomy purports, one star would be sufficient to annihilate the entire Earth upon impact.  Note also that John say the stars "fell" to the Earth; he does not say that the stars were hurtled towards the Earth.
  2. The heavens will then depart like a scroll. (See Revelation 6:14.)  This is consistent with Scripture's ubiquitous depiction of the heavens being stretched out like a curtain or tent.  This description would make no sense whatsoever if the Earth were a sphere.
  3. Everyone on Earth will then see Yahushua coming in glory. (See Revelation 1:7.)  This makes perfect sense on a flat Earth, but would be impossible if the Earth were a sphere.
  4. The wicked and unrepentant will seek to hide themselves from the "wrath of the Lamb" and "the face of him that sitteth on the throne." (See Revelation 6:15-16.)  When the heavens are rolled back "like a scroll," the wicked will behold the face of Him who sits upon the throne (above the vault of heaven, or "circle [H2329 - chûg] of the earth" Isa.40:33), and will seek to hide themselves.

Flat Earth Firmament - Rolled back like a scroll so that every eye will see Yahuwah on His throne

Scripture says that, at the Second Coming of Yahushua, the heavens will depart "as a scroll when it is rolled together," and that "every eye shall see Him." (See Revelation 1:7; 6:12-17.)  It would require a great deal of conjecture and manipulation to bring these passages into harmony with the globe model.  When the sky is rolled back, the wicked will behold Yahuwah upon His throne, and will seek to hide themselves from His awesome presence.

It is the heavenly bodies that move, not the Earth.

Then spake Joshua to Yahuwah in the day when Yahuwah 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.

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. (See Joshua 10:12-13.)

The text could not be any clearer: The "sun stood still in the midst of heaven."  Joshua commands the sun and moon to stand still in the heavens.  He does not command the Earth to stop spinning.  As honest Bible students, we must acknowledge the clarity of this passage.  Yahuwah forbid that we twist the Scriptures to agree with man's pseudo-scientific Copernicun (sun-centered) theory, which contradicts Scripture from the very outset of Genesis.  True science (testable and observable) vindicates the reality of the stationary Earth: Experiments, The Alleged Coriolis Effect

In the book of Isaiah, we have an inspired record of how Yahuwah caused the sun to regress in the sky, causing the shadow of the sundial to move backwards:

Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down. (Isaiah 38:8, KJV)

Isaiah tells us in plain language that "the sun returned ten degrees."  There is no question about it; Isaiah believed that it was the sun that moved, not the Earth.

Yahuwah forbid that we make the testimony of the prophets subservient to the theories of erring and deceitful men.

King David also believed that it was the sun that moved:

The heavens declare the glory of El; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 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, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 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. (See Psalm 19:1-6.)

Solomon, more than 25 times in the book of Ecclesiastes, uses the phrase "under the sun" when referring to Earthly activities.  Solomon clearly believed that the sun was moving above the Earth.

Yahuwah forbid that we make the testimony of the prophets subservient to the theories of erring and deceitful men.
