14 - The Shape of the World


THE SHAPE OF THE WORLD



Before Theos created everything, he made a vast plan, very detailed considering every single thing, even the disobedience of the created angels and men. So, the first stage of this big plan was the obedience-disobedience stage, for that reason he putted the tree of death as a tool of testing:

And Theos made to spring up also out of the earth every tree beautiful to the eye and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of learning the knowledge of good and evil. And the Lord Theos gave a charge to Adam, saying, Of every tree which is in the garden thou mayest freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil—of it ye shall not eat, but in whatsoever day ye eat of it, ye shall surely die... And the Lord Theos said, It is not good that the man should be alone, let us make for him a help suitable to him. (Genesis 2:9-19, Lxx)

Before the world was created, the Son of Theos had lived also the stage of the obedience:

Thy throne, O Theos, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of righteousness. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity: THEREFORE Theos, thy Theos, has anointed thee with the oil of gladness beyond thy fellows. (Psalm 45:6-7, Lxx)

Showing that He loves righteousness as his father does, he loves as his father does, in short, he is the image and likeness of his Father

Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power... (Hebrews 1:3)

Theos gave the nations (the world) to his obedient and humble Son:

But I have been made king by him on Sion his holy mountain, declaring the ordinance of my Father: my Father said to me, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession. (Psalm 2:6-8)

This means that before the world was made, as soon as he was begottem, the Father promised him the gentiles and the earth. But before he came, he had to leave out his glory that he had with his Father:

And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (John 17:5)

Theos gave his son the responsability to create every single thing, in the order established by him:





When he prepared the heaven, I was present with him; and when he prepared his throne upon the winds: (Proverbs 8:27)

The first thing to be created was the place where the Son had to live, while lasted the 1,000 years of the stage of obedience-disobedience of man, for he to attend his creation. This holy place was a temporary place, below of the heaven of his Father, the holiest place. Below his holy place the other thrones had to be established, being man the Lord of the earth.

This was model shown to Mouses for building the tabernacle

And thou shalt make for me according to all things which I shew thee in the mountain; even the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its furniture: so shalt thou make it. (Exodo 25:9)

In several places is mentioned the most holiest place, the heaven of the Father:

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in the heavens, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as in heaven.(Matthew 6:9-10)

In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also. (John 14:2-3)

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) (Ephesians 4:10)

The holiest heaven is incorruptible:

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: (Matthew 6:19-20)

Below the holiest heaven was made the heaven of the Son.

The heaven of heavens belongs to the Lord: but he has given the earth to the sons of men. (Psalm 115:16)

The angel in Revelation says that it was the heaven instead of the heavens

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (Revelation 21:1, Isaias 65:17;66:22)

We also see that what the wicked scribes called Seas, the angel in Revelation called Sea: "and there was no more sea", due to these and others changes some passages are very obscure to understand.

The first heaven had to pass away since it has been corrupted by many wicked angels:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Theos, and the power of his Xristos: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our Theos day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, [ye] heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man [child]. (Revelation 12)

'neither was their place found any more in heaven' simple means that from the beginning they had a place in the heaven, and they fought to keep it. The evil scribes used a plural heavens -hashamayim- instead of the singular one that it is.

The Heaven of the Son is of a different nature than the heavens:

First day:

In the beginning Theos made the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

Second day:

And Theos said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be a division between water and water, and it was so. And Theos made the firmament, and Theos divided between the water which was under the firmament and the water which was above the firmament. And Theos called the firmament Heaven, and Theos saw that it was good, and there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

Nehemias and Solomon show the original order, which was hid by the evil scribes:

6 And Esdras said, Thou art the only true Lord; thou madest the heaven1, and the heaven2 of heavens3, and all their array, the earth, and all things that are in it, the seas, and all things in them; and thou quickenest all things, and the hosts of heaven worship thee. (Nehemias 9:6)

But will Theos indeed dwell with men upon the earth? if the heaven1 and heaven2 of heavens3 will not suffice thee, how much less even this house which I have built to thy name? (1 Kings 8:27)



The heaven (of heaven of the heavens) is the same third heaven mentioned by Paul:

I knew a man in Xristos above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: Theos knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: Theos knoweth;)

How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

For that reason when the devil and his angel are cast out of heaven (the lowest layer) the heavens rejoice as we read before in Revelation 12. We must remember that it took Theos 24 hours to make the complex circuit of heaven and heavens, not so the heaven of Gen 1:1. The heaven of the Son and the earth were made in the beginning of the same first day, since so is said:

In the beginning Theos made the heaven and the earth.

The Holy Spirit says that the earth was made within the water:

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Theos the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men (2 Peter 3:5-6)

That process was recorded in Genesis. The Lxx sages used the word Firmament instead of expansion, or vault

And Theos said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be a division between water and water, and it was so. And Theos made the firmament, and Theos divided between the water which was under the firmament and the water which was above the firmament. And Theos called the firmament Heaven, and Theos saw that it was good, and there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

It is precisely said "in the midst of" meaning half above and half below. And two portions of water are clearly mentioned:

the water above the firmament & and water under the firmament

Praise him, ye heaven of heavens, and the water that is above the heavens (Psalm 148:4)

without any doubt, the firmament is in the middle of those two great and equal masses of waters


In some places are mentioned some of the elements that make the structure of the firmament:

It is four sided:

Jeremias 49:36 (25:36) And I will bring upon Aelam the four winds from the four corners of heaven, and I will disperse them toward all these winds; and there shall be no nation to which they shall not come—even the outcasts of Aelam.

It has foundations:

Wilt thou establish with him foundations for the ancient heavens? they are strong as a molten mirror. (job 37:18)

to come from a land afar off, from the utmost foundation of heaven; the Lord and his warriors are coming to destroy all the world. (Isaias 13:15)

And the earth was troubled and quaked, and the foundations of heaven were confounded and torn asunder, because the Lord was wroth with them. (2 Samuel 22:8)

A cloud is his hiding-place, and he shall not be seen; and he passes through the circle of heaven. (Job 22:14)

It has columns:

The pillars of heaven are prostrate and astonished at his rebuke. (JOb 26:11)

It has walls:

And the barriers of heaven fear him, and by a command he has slain the apostate dragon (Job 26:13).

It has doors:

Yet he commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven (Psalm 78:23)

It has flood-gates:

In the six hundredth year of the life of Noe, in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on this day all the fountains of the abyss were broken up, and the flood-gates of heaven were opened. (Genesis 7:11)

It has windows:

And it shall come to pass, that he that flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the pit shall be caught by the snare: for windows have been opened in heaven, and the foundations of the earth shall be shaken, (Isaías 24:18)

It has snow and water

For as rain shall come down, or snow, from heaven, and shall not return until it have saturated the earth, and it bring forth, and bud, and give seed to the sower, and bread for food:(Isaias 55:10)

At his voice he makes a sound of water in the heaven, and brings up clouds from the extremity of the earth; he makes lightnings for rain, and brings light out of his treasures (Jeremias 51:16)

It has winds

He removed the south wind from heaven; and by his might he brought in the south-west wind. (Psalm 78:26)

And the angel that talked with me answered and said, These are the four winds of heaven, and they are going forth to stand before the Lord of all the earth. (Zacharias 6:5)

And the he-goat grew exceedingly great: and when he was strong, his great horn was broken; and four other horns rose up in its place toward the four winds of heaven.(Daniel 8:8)

It has clouds:

Iesous saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. (Matthew 26:64)

It has some changes:

And knowest thou the changes of heaven, or the events which take place together under heaven? (Job 38:33)

It was streched

Thus saith the Lord that redeems thee, and who formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that performs all things: I stretched out the heaven alone, and established the earth. (Isaias 44:24)

The Lord made the earth by his power, preparing the world by his wisdom, by his understanding he stretched out the heaven. (Jeremias 51:15)

It is he that comprehends the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants in it are as grasshoppers; he that set up the heaven as a chamber, and stretched it out as a tent to dwell in: (Isaias 40:22)

who dost robe thyself with light as with a garment; spreading out the heaven as a curtain. (Psalm 104:2)

Wilt thou establish with him foundations for the ancient heavens? they are strong as a molten mirror. (Job 37:18)

THE FIRMAMENT IS A CRYSTALLINE

Antiquities of the Jews


THE CONSTITUTION OF THE WORLD AND THE DISPOSITION OF THE ELEMENTS.

1. In the beginning Theos created the heaven and the earth. But when the earth did not come into sight, but was covered with thick darkness, and a wind moved upon its surface, Theos commanded that there should be light: and when that was made, he considered the whole mass, and separated the light and the darkness; and the name he gave to one was Night, and the other he called Day: and he named the beginning of light, and the time of rest, The Evening and The Morning, and this was indeed the first day. But Mouses said it was one day; the cause of which I am able to give even now; but because I have promised to give such reasons for all things in a treatise by itself, I shall put off its exposition till that time. After this, on the second day, he 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 it together in a manner agreeable to the earth, and fitted it for giving moisture and rain, and for affording the advantage of dews

So, the sun moves as a layer of crystalline, the moon moves in other layer, and the stars move in another layer of crystalline, in Revelation 6 is said that when the layer of crystalline if rolled together, all the stars can not stay floating freely and fall down to earth

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...

The sun and the moon don't fall because they are in others layers of crystalline, so simple.

THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH

So, it is clearly stated that the firmament has four side:

And I will bring upon Aelam the four winds from the four corners of heaven (Jeremias 49:36)

Therefore the face of the water above the firmament and the face of the water under the firmament exposed to the firmament also has four side:

And he shall lift up a standard for the nations, and he shall gather the lost ones of Israel, and he shall gather the dispersed of Juda from the four corners of the earth. (Isaias 11:12)

Thus saith the Lord; An end is come to the land of Israel, the end is come on the four corners of the land (Ezekiel 7:2)

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. (Revelation 7:1)

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. (Revelation 20:8)

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:31)

And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. (Mark 13:27)

He removed the south wind from heaven; and by his might he brought in the south-west wind. (Psalm 78:26)

And the angel that talked with me answered and said, These are the four winds of heaven, and they are going forth to stand before the Lord of all the earth. (Zacharias 6:5)

And the he-goat grew exceedingly great: and when he was strong, his great horn was broken; and four other horns rose up in its place toward the four winds of heaven.(Daniel 8:8)

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12)

Thou hast created the north and the west: Thabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name. (Psalm 89:12)

So shall they of the west fear the name of the Lord, and they that come from the rising of the sun his glorious name: for the wrath of the Lord shall come as a mighty river, it shall come with fury. (Isaias 59:19)

And thy seed shall be as the sand of the earth; and it shall spread abroad to the sea, and the south, and the north, and to the east; and in thee and in thy seed shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 28:14)

Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and will gather thee from the west. (Isaias 43:5)

And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 8:11)

Heaven is high; and what wilt thou do? and there are deeper things than those in hell; what dost thou know? Or longer than the measure of the earth, or the breadth of the sea. (Job 11:8-9)

UNDER THE FIRMAMENT

One never found that the earth is within the heaven, but under the heaven:

Who shakes the earth under heaven from its foundations, and its pillars totter. (Job 9:6)

The Lxx and Jeremias 8:8 testify that the evil scribes deleted or changed the words "the earth under the heaven" to give the idea of an earth within the heaven:

Nehemias 1:9 But if ye turn again to me, and keep my commandments, and do them; if ye should be scattered under the utmost bound of heaven , thence will I gather them, and I will bring them into the place which I have chosen to cause my name to dwell there.

Job 1:7 And the Lord said to the devil, Whence art thou come? And the devil answered the Lord, and said, I am come from compassing the earth, and walking up and down in {1} the world. {1) Gr. the earth under heaven}

Job 2:2 And the Lord, said to the devil, Whence comest thou? Then the devil said before the Lord, I am come from going through {1} the world, and walking about the whole earth. {1) Gr. the earth under heaven}

Job 9:6 Who shakes the earth under heaven from its foundations, and its pillars totter.

Job 18:4 Anger has possessed thee: for what if thou shouldest die; would the earth under heaven be desolate? or shall the mountains be overthrown from their foundations?

Job 28:24 For he surveys the whole earth under heaven, knowing the things in the earth:

Job 34:13 And who is he that made the whole world under heaven, and all things therein?

Job 37:3 His dominion is under the whole heaven, and his light is at the extremities of the earth.

Job 38:18 And hast thou been instructed in the breadth of the whole earth under heaven? tell me now, what is the extent of it?

Job 38:24 And whence proceeds the frost? or whence is the south wind dispersed over the whole world under heaven?

Job 38:33 And knowest thou the changes of heaven, or the events which take place together under heaven?

Job 41:11 (41:2) Or who will resist me, and abide, since the whole world under heaven is mine?

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To all things there is a time, and a season for every matter under heaven.

Jeremias 10:11 Thus shall ye say to them, Let the theos which have not made heaven and earth perish from off the earth, and from under this sky.

Daniel 7:27 And the kingdom and the power and the greatness of the kings that are under the whole heaven were given to the saints of the Most High; and his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all powers shall serve and obey him.

Lamentations 3:66 Thou wilt persecute them in anger, and wilt consume them from under the heaven, O Lord.

In Proverb 8:27 a clear corruption is found:

When he prepared the heaven, I was present with him; and when he {1} prepared his throne upon the winds: {1) Or, marked out}

In Isaias 40:22 other corruption is found:

22 It is he that comprehends the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants in it are as grasshoppers; he that set up the heaven as a chamber, and stretched it out as a tent to dwell in:



23 he that appoints princes to rule as nothing, and has made the earth as nothing.

Circle some times mean circuit, extension:

Its going forth is from the extremity of heaven, and its circuit to the other end of heaven: and no one shall be hidden from its heat. (Psalm 19:6)

The Lxx testifies that Job 26:7 was affected:

Job 26:7 He stretches out the north wind upon nothing, and he upon nothing hangs the earth;

Proverbs 25:23 The north wind raises clouds; so an impudent face provokes the tongue.

Proverbs 27:16 The north wind is sharp, but it is called by name propitious.

Song of Solomon 4:16 Awake, O north wind; and come, O south; and blow through my garden, and let my spices flow out.

In the masoretic version 'the north wind' is changed to 'the north' to give the idea of the north of the earth floats in the emptyness, without any doubt the second part was also affected 'he upon nothing hangs the earth' since in several places is declared that the earth is whithin the water:

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Theos the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (2 Peter 3:5)

To him who established the earth on the waters; for his mercy endures for ever. (Psalm 136:6)

Peter says that Theos destroyed the earth in that time in water because is within the water

the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished

This is openly opposed to 'the earth hangs upon nothing', which portrays the hand of the pharisees (Jeremias 8:8; Ezekiel 8).

THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH

Where wast thou when I founded the earth? tell me now, if thou hast knowledge, who set the measures of it, if thou knowest? or who stretched a line upon it? On what are its rings fastened? and who is he that laid the corner-stone upon it? (Job 38:4)

and when he strengthened the foundations of the earth: (Proverbs 8:29)

In the beginning thou, O Lord, didst lay the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands (Psalm 102:5).

Who establishes the earth on her sure foundation: it shall not be moved for ever (Psalm 104:5).

For the heaven shall be enraged, and the earth shall be shaken from her foundation, because of the fierce anger of the Lord of hosts, in the day in which his wrath shall come on. (Isaias 13:13)

And the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his anger. (2 Samuel 22:16)

Who shakes the earth under heaven from its foundations, and its pillars totter. (Job 9:6)

They know not, nor understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be shaken. (Psalm 82:5)

But now thou shalt go down to hell, even to the foundations of the earth.(Isaias 14:15)

And it shall come to pass, that he that flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the pit shall be caught by the snare: for windows have been opened in heaven, and the foundations of the earth shall be shaken, (Isaias 24:18)

Will ye not know? will ye not hear? has it not been told you of old? Have ye not known the foundations of the earth? (Isaias 40:21)

Rejoice, ye heavens; for Theos has had mercy upon Israel: sound the trumpet, ye foundations of the earth: ye mountains, shout with joy, ye hills, and all the trees therein: for Theos has redeemed Jacob, and Israel shall be glorified. (Isaias 44:23)

Hear ye, O mountains, the controversy of the Lord, and ye valleys even the foundations of the earth: for the Lord has a controversy with his people, and will plead with Israel. (Micaias 6:2)

THE COLUMNS OF THE EARTH

Who shakes the earth under heaven from its foundations, and its pillars totter. (Job 9:6)

The earth is dissolved, and all that dwell in it: I have strengthened its pillars. Pause. (Psalm 75:3)

THE EARTH STANDING IN THE WATER

And the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his anger. (2 Samuel 22:16)

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Theos the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (2 Peter 3:5)

To him who established the earth on the waters; for his mercy endures for ever. (Psalm 136:6)

And Theos said, Let the water which is under the heaven be collected into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. And the water which was under the heaven was collected into its places, and the dry land appeared. And Theos called the dry land Earth, and the gatherings of the waters he called Seas, and Theos saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:9,10)

All of these are under the firmament, NEVER within it

ALL THE LIGHTERS OF THE FIRMAMENT

The masorete removed the first purpose of the lighters "to give light upon the earth":

Lxx:And Theos said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light UPON1 the earth, to divide between day and night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years. And let them be for light in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine UPON2 the earth, and it was so. And Theos made the two great lights, the greater light for regulating the day and the lesser light for regulating the night, the stars also. And Theos placed them in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon3 the earth, and to regulate day and night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. And Theos saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.



Masorete:And Theos 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: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And Theos made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also. And Theos set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Theos saw that [it was] good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Despite the changes, It was never intended to light below the earth

THE SIZE OF THE SUN

Being the sun a lighter, as a bulb in somebody house, it size is very small with respect to the house (the earth) to light:

Heaven is high; and what wilt thou do? and there are deeper things than those in hell; what dost thou know? Or longer than the measure of the earth, or the breadth of the sea. (Job 11:8-9)

Its going forth is from the extremity of heaven, and its circuit to the other end of heaven: and no one shall be hidden from its heat. (Psalm 19:6)

And the sun arises, and the sun goes down and draws toward its place; arising there it proceeds southward, and goes round toward the north. The wind goes round and round, and the wind returns to its circuits. (Ecclesiastes 1:5-6)

Then Iesous spoke to the Lord, in the day in which the Lord delivered the Amorite into the power of Israel, when he destroyed them in Gabaon, and they were destroyed from before the children of Israel: and Iesous said, Let the sun stand over against Gabaon, and the moon over against the valley of Aelon. And the sun and the moon stood still, until Theos executed vengeance on their enemies; and the sun stood still in the midst of heaven; it did not proceed to set till the end of one day. And there was not such a day either before or after, so that Theos should hearken to a man, because the Lord fought on the side of Israel. (Iesous 10:12-14)

THE SIZES OF THE STARS

The sun and the moon are greater than the stars: "And Theos made the two great lights, the greater light for regulating the day and the lesser light for regulating the night" which was not described with respect to the sight of man, since he had to wait 2 days!, so the dimension given are from the point of view of the manufacturer: not star is equal to or greater than the sun:

[There is] one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for [one] star differeth from [another] star in glory. (1 Corint 15:41)

The sizes of the stars are mentioned in Revelation 6:12-17:

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...

The planets are demons, look at their names:

Jupiter, Saturn, Pluton, Neptune, Urane, Mar, Venus, Mercury

Which is clearly mentioned:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timot 4:1)

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. (2 Tessal 2:7)

THE DAY DOESN'T COME FROM THE SUN

It clearly stated that the sun was made in the fourth day. The sun is an object of the day, as the whale is an object of the sea. The sun moves within the ocean of light (the day) as the whale move within the sea!, it never moves in the darkness while the moon can moves within the darkness and within the light!

The sun is a kind of channel through which the light of the day goes on, since the sun regulates the day.

Time doesn't depend of light or darkness!

The watch was set in the holiest heaven, where things are incorruptible, for that reason Theos's year remains the same 360 days!. The year of Theos is not the year of the Jews!

The Jewish commander stopped the sun AND the moon but not the time!, since it is said "almost a whole day", meaning that it was measured with a kind of watch that doesn't depend on the sun!

THE HEAVEN IS ALWAYS ABOVE

But as the heaven is distant from the earth, so is my way distant from your ways, and your thoughts from my mind. (Isaias 55:9)

THE TELESCOPE WORKING OF ERROR

We are taught that with powerful telescopes we can watch what is going on in the universe, beyond the sun and the stars. However, objects closer to us as a plane 2.000 miles away flying in straight line can not be seen. Most of those things 'seen' at the very 'far universe' are just arranged systems of lies that come from human sources, but also Theos himself gives them what their wicked souls desired, since it is said so:

2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then will be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord will consume with breath of his mouth, and annul by the appearing of his coming;

9 whose is coming according to the working of Satan in every power and signs and wonders of falsehood,

10 and in every deceit of unrighteousness in them that perish, because they not received the love for to be saved them.

11 and on of this account Theos will send to them a working of error, for to believe them what is false,

12 that may be judged all who believed not the truth, but delighted in unrighteousness. (Textus Receptus)
