Who, Me….???

So, once again I have really lapsed with writing on the ol’ blog, but today I hope to try and explain a bit about why that has been the case, and share a little about the curious position I am now finding myself in at the moment.

For several years I was plugging away here on my blog, rather content with my relatively small amount of readers/subscribers, and appreciating the cathartic nature of being able to post about whatever I happened to find intriguing in the moment, all under the screen of my little WordPress pseudonym…

I had gone back and forth for some time, considering the idea of taking a stab at making videos and putting them up on youtube, and aside from a few that I had done on topics like CERN and “Transformational Festivals”, I really didn’t get that involved with until I found myself diving down the “Flat Earth rabbit hole”, and then suddenly I found myself furiously making videos discussing various “Flat Earth proofs”, as well as looking into the Biblical case for a flat, enclosed Cosmology.

When that began, I could count on one hand the number of Youtube subscribers I had on my little channel. Like I said, I have been accustomed to obscurity, and that has really been my preferred vantage point! Yet, as the months have passed, and the “Flat Earth Movement” has continued to expand and get more and more attention, so have my little videos, to the point where now not only does my “exposure” via YT far surpass anything I had previously experienced through blogging, but now it has also reached the stage whereby I am currently sitting on around half a dozen invitations to be interviewed by other Youtube channels/shows, or participate in discussion panels to talk about Flat Earth, Biblical Cosmology, etc.

And frankly, I’m terrified. It’s as though I’m inadvertently pushing the ever-shrinking line between remaining “safe” in my anonymity, and finally stepping across that line, into a realm where suddenly the human being has to step out from behind the internet avatar…

I have prayed about it. Agonized over it. Gone back and forth, again and again, between one day feeling like “Okay, I’m willing…” to then the next day feeling more compelled to simply pull the plug on everything altogether, and just get on with “real life”. I’m not trying to be anything remotely resembling an online “figurehead”. I never was. There are few things I dislike more in this world than the phenomena we often refer to as the “cult of personality”.

But then again… I find myself unable to pull myself away from continuing to explore this topic of the “Biblical Flat Earth”, and all the countless ways that it seems to fit in with all the various topics of Bible Prophecy, End-time Deception, New World Order agendas, and so much more, which I’ve already been navigating my way through over the past six years or so now. It’s almost like everything I’ve been learning up to this point has laid the foundation for now considering them all in this incredible “unified context” of a Cosmological model which I now have to confess appears to have been staring at me from the pages of Scripture the whole time. I mean, seriously, SO many things which I’ve written about over the past few years, whether it be interdimensional portals, or the Book of Enoch, UFO Deception, Genesis 6, the Occult, the Creation vs. Evolution debate, transhumanism, the fake moon landings, ancient megalithic structures, the infamous “Illuminati”, the tower of Babel, CERN, and on and on, now suddenly all “gel” in a way which before I never would’ve imagined…

Anyhow, so, this is my conundrum at the present moment. This is my crossroads that seemingly I can’t find a way around…

Another Christian FE Youtube channel by the name of “Celebrate Truth” recently finished a documentary he’s been working on for some time, called “The Global Lie”, and I was very privileged to be able to contribute several segments of content to the production. I’d have to say that the finished product is really quite superb and I hope everyone reading this is able find the time to watch it, as it really focuses on the connections between the Copernican system/cosmology and the Theory of Evolution (among other things). Several other fantastic researchers such as Rob Skiba are featured in the film, and it was truly an honor to be able to take part in this project. Here’s the full documentary:

FLAT EARTH: “The Choice Awakens”…

(transcript of the video’s narration below, just in case it’s hard to hear some of the recording I guess…)

What do Star Wars, the recent attacks in Paris, and the Flat Earth, all have in common…?

Most people would probably think, not much, but I would actually like to suggest the idea that there is in fact a great deal of commonality amongst all three of these subjects, and I’m going to try and weave them all together by examining a theme which many us are probably already familiar with.

That theme, is the Hegelian Dialectic.

Now, for most people who would consider themselves a part of the “Truth Movement”, or participants in “conspiracy research”, and so on, this is something you are most likely already understand, at least on a certain level.

When looking at things like the New World Order agenda, and the laundry list of False Flag attacks that have increasingly occurred since 9/11, for a lot of people it’s fairly easy to comprehend how we can see this playing out again and again. Create the problem, which stimulates a reaction, then provide the solution. Thesis, antithesis, then synthesis. They instigate the crisis, and then promise to deliver everyone from said artificial crisis, using means and methods which previously there was no political will to support. In the “War on Terror”, we see how again and again the citizenry is manipulated into willingly giving up their personal freedoms in favor of an increasingly invasive surveillance society and militarized police state, because it promises to ensure safety in the face of the suddenly existent “terrorist threat”.

On September 10, 2001, there was absolutely no way the Bush administration could’ve cajoled the American public, and other countries around the world, into invading Afghanistan (and of course, Iraq a little later). By September 12 people were screaming for bombing raids and boots on the ground.
On November 12, 2015, France had little involvement in the hostilities in Syria. By the 14th, they were busily bombing “ISIS targets”…

Okay, so this is nothing new. But what about the Flat Earth? How does the Hegelian dialectic factor in there?

One of the amazing things about the “Flat Earth movement”, is that for so many individuals it is truly working to bring them to a place where they realize that they are NOT simply just a random accident of the Universe, an evolving blob of matter descended from countless others, which billions of years ago all just happened to spring to life from the primordial soup which had puddled together on a chunk of rock that was expelled from the Big Bang. And this is a fantastic, marvelous thing.

However, even when people get to that point of recognizing the lie of Evolution, and opening there hearts and minds to the idea of a “Creator”, the next big question of course has to do with just who/what that Creator actually is, and what do they want…
Was it “God”? Gods? Some advanced ancient alien race? Is the Cosmos itself sentient, i.e. pantheism? And so on.

One of the things which is so intriguing about the Flat Earth movement, and indeed the “Truth movement” in general really, is that there is actually a very strong tide of people coming to a place where they recognize that there just has to be something true in the belief in a spiritual reality. Lots of people who are seeing the evidence for the claims that the Earth has no discernable curvature, and that Heliocentricism is demonstrably false, are understably stopping and taking a second look at the Bible, even if often times they never considered themselves “religious”, because of all the things that it has to say pointing very much to an enclosed, finite cosmology.

But getting excited by the fact that the Bible describes a Flat Earth, and listening to what the Bible also has to say about things like the fallen nature of humanity, the Holiness of God, Christ’s atonement for sin on the cross, the existence of a literal devil, etc., are of course, two very different things…

So, just like with so many other “non-Flat-Earthers”, this “awakening to a greater spiritual reality” essentially leads one to a crossroads. What is the nature of this spiritual reality? What does it mean to “find God”? Or, are we all on our own journey of “finding our own God”? What about all these ancient, mystical traditions and shamanic practices, is there some value to be found in exploring those? And how does such esoteric knowledge which deals with issues like “magic” or “advanced entities” and dimensional transcendence and such relate to the sorts of things we can deduce about what the “NWO Elites” are themselves engaging in…?

And this is where we segway into Star Wars, and the whole cinematic, mythological universe that Lucas and co. created…
Unless you’ve somehow managed to boycott the Star Wars franchise altogether, and avoid watching the original trilogy, you undoubtedly know the scene from The Empire Strikes Back where in the Degobah swamp Yoda explains to Luke what the Force is… (scene here)

Now, the thing is, that this whole explanation of the Force here, is really a nutshell version of the entire belief system which the Bible sometimes refers to as “Mystery Babylon”. This is the core of ALL “mystery traditions”, ancient occultism, shamanic practices, and the modern New Age movement. Biblical prophecy actually says that in the Last Days there would be a renewed surge of interest in this Luciferian philosophy, and we can absolutely see this very thing taking place within the FE movement, the broader “Truth movement”, and yes, even “mainstream society” as a whole. So in that sense, (and I realize this may ruffle some feathers to hear this) it almost doesn’t even matter if a person becomes “awakened” to the reality of the New World Order agenda, or even “enclosed world cosmology”, because in any case we are all still faced with the same over-arching choice between the believing in the spiritual narrative of the Bible (where God sets the boundaries and defines how Deliverance from the Fallen system will ultimately happen) and believing in the alternative, in it’s countless varieties and forms.

You see, throughout the Star Wars films, we are presented with the duality between the forces of tyrannical oppression, military aggression, and ruthless domination. This is all represented by the agenda of the “Empire”.

This is of course contrasted against the forces of the “Rebellion”, the collection of humans and alien races devoted to peace, harmony and galactic cooperation and so on.

Both sides have heroes and villains who have mastered the use of the “Force”, with the Sith Lords serving the evil forces of Empire, and the Jedi knights of course serving the cause of Truth, Justice and Peace.

But the “Force” itself is said to itself be rather unbiased. It can be used for ‘good’, or used for ‘evil’. And this is the trap, this is the spiritual lie. This is the same Hegelian dialectic being embedded into these most popular of films.

Because interestingly enough, Hegel didn’t actually invent the “Hegelian dialectic”. He merely recognized, categorized it, gave it a name. It was really Lucifer, the Fallen angel, who first developed and applied this method of deception, back in the Garden of Eden, in the account found in Genesis 3 where he tempted the first man and woman into eating the forbidden fruit. It was Satan who “created the first artificial problem”, by lying to them about the nature of God, and painting God Himself and the tyrannical, oppressive “Dark Lord”, who was holding Adam and Eve back from “having their eyes opened, so they could be like God…”

It was he who first suckered humanity into believing the lie, because he KNEW that it wouldn’t actually deliver that which he promised, but would instead bring death and seperation from God. It was indeed a “false flag argument”, whereby God was turned into the bad guy, while Lucifer portrayed himself as the “Savior”, who was trying to “free” humanity by showing them the path to enlightenment…

And absolutely, we can hear this very same argument being made to this very day.

Just recently I was listening to an interview with Jeran of “Jeranism”, where he was talking about the Bible as it relates to Flat Earth, (and I’m not picking on him or trying to attack him personally at all) but he was articulating this very same idea, wherein he believed the Bible has some “good stuff” in it, as it pertains to FE, and also certain generic concepts of “love your neighbor as yourself”, and so on, but adamently rejected the whole idea “idly sitting by and just waiting for Jesus to come back and save the world”, instead of getting up and trying to do something about all the problems in the world.

You hear this sort of thing all over the place, in the Truth movement, and again, in society as a whole. And so, while the concept of a “Creator” might be permitted, the question as to how we “approach all that is wrong with the world” is the one that is of the most ultimate significance, even more significance than the question as sweeping and massive as the size/shape of the world in which we live…

Because, really, how much sense does it make, if on the one hand we begin to see the scope of so many of the lies being perpretated upon the world, by this extremely nefarious group of “Elites”, only to turn around and eventually embrace the same ideology, and same spiritual practices, that they have…?

Why do you think that right in front of Rockefeller Center in NY, there is that famous statue of Prometheus, “The Light Bearer”…?

That is a representation of THEIR hope, THEIR “deliverence”. Prometheus is Lucifer! He is the one they believe “stole the fire from heaven”, and graciously shared it with humanity, so we can “save ourselves”… They too hate the idea of a Soveriegn, all-powerful God, who found mankind guilty of sin, and provided a way of Redemption through Jesus’ death on the cross. They too have instead turned to lying and suducing spirits, and their promises of “secret knowledge”, and benevolent gifts of “higher technologies” and the ability to transcend our current human limitations.
And so it is a complete false duality, to entertain this idea of trying to resist the forces of “Empire” by turning to the same spiritual sources and ideologies that they use.

You see, the God of the Bible does not offer us anything akin to the idea of the “Force”, whereby we can hope to master certain metaphysical secrets and become wizards, eventually elevating above the physical plane itself (as we see in Star Wars when “Jedi Masters” become ascended “light beings”…) His Way is completely upside-down from how we typically assume we can and should “fight the powers that be”. Jesus defeated Death, by submitting to it, as a sacrifice on our behalf. HE has the true power. His Holy Spirit is capable of workings and miracles which would shame anything Hollywood could dream up, BUT, it is not something that we can learn to wield like some mystical weapon, not something that “guides our actions, but also obeys our commands”. The Holy Spirit is a PERSON, whom we learn to Trust and submit to, and He leads us through this fallen, rebellious world…

I don’t know how much sense I’m really making here, I could honestly go on and on about this for hours probably, but for some time now, I have been feeling convicted to start speaking out on this issue more, especially as the longer I find myself navigating through this so-called “Flat Earth movement”, and seeing how many people are coming to a place where they are starting to seriously reconsider their opinions on things like astrology, and meditation, and hallucinogenic drugs like ayahuasca and DMT, and the role which various “spiritual entities” might actually be playing in the “Heavens” above our heads, and so on. Again, please know that I am not intending to attack or berate anyone for their current beliefs, but I do hope to do my part to ignite and sustain the conversation on this whole topic of the spiritual realm.

I believe it’s only going to press more and more to forefront as time goes on anyhow, and if you are someone who through looking into the Flat Earth has brought to taking a second look at the Bible, or the Book of Enoch, because of their FE implications, then I’m simply trying to encourage people to continue looking into what these writings have to say about the true nature of this “panorama of conspiracy” as a whole…

Pondering the Solar/Six Question…

Often times I’ve been getting questions/objections towards the Flat Earth idea which go something like this: “Well, until you have a perfect and complete model of the Earth, which can explain how all the sun, moon and stars really DO work, then you don’t have anything at all…”

I’m afraid I have to disagree with this, because to put it plainly, if we can first establish with quite simple and repeatable means that the thing which is under all of our feet doesn’t in fact ever demonstrate measurable curvature? Well, regardless of whatever else is going on above our heads, we ain’t standing on a big spinning ball.

But the point is taken, in that yes, I concede that I still have far more questions than answers, and I of course very much am driven by my own internal curiosity to have a “model of it all” that “works” within the framework of my own understanding. Is such a thing actually realistically achievable? Hard to say, especially when you start to allow for the possibility that much of what is going on with the “luminaries” might not actually be limited by the assumed bounds of scientific materialism and non-sentient mechanical matter. 😉

So here is one little thing that I will admit openly still puzzles and intrigues me.

ENOCH – CHAPTER LXXII.

1. The book of the courses of the luminaries of the heaven, the relations of each, according to their classes, their dominion and their seasons, according to their names and places of origin, and according to their months, which Uriel, the holy angel, who was with me, who is their guide, showed me; and he showed me all their laws exactly as they are, and how it is with regard to all the years of the world and unto eternity, till the new creation is accomplished which dureth till eternity. 2. And this is the first law of the luminaries: the luminary the Sun has its rising in the eastern portals of the heaven, and its setting in the western portals of the heaven. 3. And I saw six portals in which the sun rises, and six portals in which the sun sets and the moon rises and sets in these portals, and the leaders of the stars and those whom they lead: six in the east and six in the west, and all following each other in accurately corresponding order: also many windows to the right and left of these portals. 4. And first there goes forth the great luminary, named the Sun, and his circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and he is quite filled with illuminating and heating fire. 5. The chariot on which he ascends, the wind drives, and the sun goes down from the heaven and returns through the north in order to reach the east, and is so guided that he comes to the appropriate (lit. ‘that’) portal and shines in the face of the heaven. 6. In this way he rises in the first month in the great portal, which is the fourth those six portals in the cast. (the entirety of Enoch chapter 72 here)

Honestly, ever since coming back and looking at this concept in Enoch of the sun having “six portals”, it has really intrigued me, and confounded me. I just can’t for the life of me wrap my brain around what exactly this might actually look like, or how it actually might work. It’s one of those peculiar things, which even though on a certain level I can’t see the logic of it, it still, somehow, “feels” like there is some very fundamental truth to it all.

Is this perhaps due to the fact that our entire system of measuring time is built around multiples/divisions of the number six?

This is an interesting thing to consider, because (at least for me anyways) it really begs the question as to how anyone ever decided upon 60 seconds, 60 minutes, 12 hours + 12 hours, etc. I remember reading somewhere that supposedly the Sumerians had a number system based on sixes, instead of tens. (at least I think it was Sumeria, it was one of those ancient Mesopotamian cultures…) Maybe that’s where people would say it originated from. But even so, that would still beg a further question, namely, as to why they would choose sixes as the basis of all their counting and quantification.

It’s easy to grasp where anthropologists attribute the origins of the ten-based numerical system. Everybody’s got ten fingers and ten toes. Only makes sense to count in tens! So why sixes??

window-broadway

Not only is time divided into sixes, but the means by which we divide and measure sections of a circle is via multiples of six. 360 Degrees… I find that very interesting too, in the context of FE contemplation, obviously you start to see the parallels and inferences, between the sun circumnavigating over the flat circle of the Earth, and the hands of the clock going around the 12 hours, (which I know, is derived from ancient sundials…), and so on.

What’s more, is that I find it of even further interest, when pondering the esoteric and occult connections between Luciferian sun worship, and the number six. Everybody knows about the “number of the Beast” from Revelation, the infamous 666 (even if they know nothing about it’s true prophetic context). Far less people understand that the so-called “Star of David” is in fact an ancient Satanic symbol, the “Star of Remphan”. The six-pointed star has nothing to do with the Israelites faith in the one true God, but seems to trace instead back to Babylon, and possibly was introduced to Israel by Solomon and his downfall into witchcraft.

But then juxtapose all of that with the vast amount of Satanic “sun-gods” throughout history, be it Apollo, Rah, etc., and it starts to make sense that the constant use of the number six by the Fallen one might itself be an extension of his affinity for likening himself to the sun. It makes perfect sense, from Satan’s ever-blasphemous point of view.

So, that’s something that’s been buzzing through my mind as of late. Lots of questions, lots to ponder. As always, I’d be delighted to hear what anyone else might think about these things (or whatever else is on your mind!) Have a great day.

Funny How the Atheists Have No Problem Recognizing Biblical Support of a Flat Earth…

I keep bumping into examples like this recently, and it really does strike me as ironic, and a little funny, but a little embarrassing too. Some of the BEST compilations I have encountered of Bible verses describing a Flat Earth, have been put together not by Biblical scholars or theologians, but by Atheists! And the thing is, I very much now have to agree with them, in that, whatever what one might want to believe about the true nature of the Universe, it’s pretty inescapable to see what the Bible itself actually does say

In the end, it’s really an issue of neither side wanting to end up with egg on their face. One side inevitably will. Most people believe that it’s been soundly decided and proved. But has it really…? (After all, the same folks will tell you that Darwinian Evolution has been soundly decided, and proven as “unquestionable scientific fact”…) Either the Bible was wrong, and Christianity has simply been trying to sweep all these “scientifically ignorant” claims of the Bible under the rug for the last several hundred years, OR… The Bible is right, has always been right, and a good deal of what you’ve been told your whole life is simply a ridiculous lie…

Here is an article titled: Why Don’t Christians Who Take the Bible Literally Also Think the Earth Is Flat?

The creationist crowd is in a tithy lately. First there was “Cosmos” — on Fox, no less! —  giving short shrift to everything they hold dear. Then, adding insult to injury, for those paying close attention, long-awaited evidence of the Big Bang arrived.  It’s been a rough few weeks.

But really, if you’re a biblical literalist, it’s been a rough few centuries, or millennia, actually. You see, according to the Bible, the earth is both stationary and flat. Most pointedly, there are at least two passages in which a single point is visible to the whole world (Daniel 4:10-11 and Revelation 1:7), and one (Matthew 4:8) in which the whole world can be seen from a single point — an obvious impossibility unless the earth is flat.

Although the Catholic Church had forced Galileo to recant his work questioning the immobile earth in 1632 — and only pardoned him in 1992 — they did so in part because they were certain the earth was a globe: a globe around which the sun, moon and all other heavenly bodies revolved. Such was the Ptolemaic system, which had dominated Western views for more than a millennium. And yet, the Bible itself reflects a radically different view of the cosmos, one shared by the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians, in which the earth is both stationary and flat. And there is a wide range of scriptural passages to prove it.

The late Robert Schadewald made this point conclusively in “The Flat-Earth Bible,” an article posted on the Web back in 1995.  Schadewald was a former board member and president of the National Center for Science Education, a leader in the fight against creationism and other forms of pseudo-science being pushed into schools. But he was as much an enthusiastic student of fringe or “alternative” science as a source of endless fascination as he was a critic of swallowing it whole.

“When I first became interested in the flat-earthers in the early 1970s, I was surprised to learn that flat-earthism in the English-speaking world is and always has been entirely based upon the Bible,” Schadewald begins his piece. Easily the most influential work is “Zetetic Astronomy, Earth Not a Globe,” by Samuel Birley Rowbotham. Its first, 16-page pamphlet edition, in 1849, predated Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species” by a decade.

“The Biblical cosmology is never explicitly stated, so it must be pieced together from scattered passages,” Schadewald explains. But he starts with the much more direct, explicit Bible statements about an immobile, geocentric earth. It’s a logical starting point, since he notes, “The flat-earth view is geocentricity with further restrictions.” There are hundreds of such passages, according to geocentrist James N. Hanson, who spoke to Schadewald at the 1984 National Bible-Science Conference in Cleveland, but these are “a few obvious texts” that Schadewald chose to cite:

1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”

Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm …”

Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable …”

Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”

Isaiah 45:18: “…who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast …”

It’s remarkable enough that most of today’s creationists, wedded to biblical literalism andinerrancy, rarely mention such passages, particularly given the history of Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo. But then there are these, as well:

Daniel 4:10-11: [Nebuchadnezzar] “saw a tree of great height at the centre of the earth … reaching with its top to the sky and visible to the earth’s farthest bounds.”

Matthew 4:8: “Once again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world [cosmos] in their glory.”

Revelation 1:7: “Behold, he is coming with the clouds! Every eye shall see him …”

A single point cannot see to or be seen from everywhere on a globe at once. For these words to be literally true, the earth must be flat, end of story.

These are only a few passages, of course. To really comprehend the Bible’s flat-earth cosmology, you have to know what you’re looking for — the other elements of the flat-earth world. That’s why Schadewald noted, “As neighbors, the ancient Hebrews had the Egyptians to the southwest and the Babylonians to the northeast. Both civilizations had flat-earth cosmologies. The Biblical cosmology closely parallels the Sumero-Babylonian cosmology, and it may also draw upon Egyptian cosmology.” He went on to document what he meant. In addition to the passages above, he cited passages concerning the nature of the heavens, the order of creation, and the diminutive nature of the sun, moon and stars. All are relevant to the claim of a flat earth, because all are parts of a coherent flat-earth worldview similar to that of Egypt and Babylon’s: The earth is flat; the heavens are a solid dome, fashioned of metal; the sun, moon and stars are relatively small object inside the dome of heaven.  As for the order of creation, Schadewald wrote:

The Genesis creation story provides the first key to the Hebrew cosmology. The orderof creation makes no sense from a conventional perspective but is perfectly logical from a flat-earth viewpoint. The earth was created on the first day, and it was “without form and void (Genesis 1:2).” On the second day, a vault the “firmament” of the King James version was created to divide the waters, some being above and some below the vault. Only on the fourth day were the sun, moon, and stars created, and they were placed “in” (not “above”) the vault.

Regarding the heavens, he noted that the word “firmament” is translated from the Hebrew word raqiya, meaning the “visible vault of the sky,” and coming from riqqua, “beaten out.” “A good craftsman could beat a lump of cast brass into a thin bowl,” Schadewald pointed out. “Thus, Elihu asks Job, ‘Can you beat out [raqa] the vault of the skies, as he does, hard as a mirror of cast metal (Job 37:18)?’” He went on to cite a number of passages supporting the view that the vault of heaven is “a solid, physical object” and thus “a tremendous feat of engineering,” as well as passages from Isaiah [40:22], Job [22:12, 14], and Ezekiel [1:22-26, 10:1], which “complete the picture of the sky as a lofty, physical dome,” not merely an illusion that looks like a dome.

Regarding celestial bodies, Schadewald first noted, “They had to be small to fit inside the vault of heaven,” but added, “Small size is also implied by Joshua 10:12, which says that the sun stood still ‘in Gibeon’ and the moon ‘in the Vale of Aijalon.’” He then cited a number of passages presenting celestial bodies as “exotic living beings,” somewhat similar to how various polytheist religions represent them. And, of course, stars can fall from the skies (Daniel 8:10, Matthew 24:29, Revelation 6:13-16).

While the Bible itself contains no explicit cosmological description, the Book of Enoch, a highly regarded source that influenced the Bible, does. Schadewald pointed out that Jude 14- 15 quotes 1 Enoch 1:9, attributes prophecy to Enoch, and thus “confers inspired status upon the book.”  He went on to say:

Unlike the canonical books of the Bible, which (in my view) were never meant to teach science, sections of 1 Enoch were intended to describe the natural world. The narrator sometimes sounds like a 2nd century B.C. Carl Sagan explaining the heavens and earth to the admiring masses. The Enochian cosmology is precisely the flat-earth cosmology previously derived from the canonical books.

This includes trips to the ends of the earth, a detailed description of solar and lunar motion, including six openings in heaven for them to emerge from when they rise and another six to pass into when they set, according to the season, and  more information about stars, including their punishment for transgressions.

Some might be inclined to think that Schadewald was overstating his case. That’s understandable. Skepticism is good. So they should consider what a true believer had to say. In “Earth Not a Globe,”  Rowbotham first presented a series of secular arguments on a wide range of specific issues, but in the end he resorted to wide-ranging, detailed arguments from scripture, in which moral, religious and physical arguments were all jumbled together with extensive quotations from the Bible.

At one point, for example, Rowbotham cited more than two dozen passages, such asPsalm 103, 11, “For as the Heaven is high above the Earth,” to argue that “If the Earth is a globe revolving at the rate above a thousand miles an hour all this language of scripture is necessarily fallacious.” “Up” and “down” are meaningless, he argued, if the place you point to as “up above” you is millions of miles away by the time you’re finished speaking. This may seem like a bizarre position, but it actually accurately reflects a consistent, literal-minded, stationary geocentric worldview — if not an exclusively flat-earth perspective. It simply shows how much scriptural evidence one can find, depending on the set of assumptions one begins with — which in turn shows just how difficult, if not impossible, it is to change the minds of true believers.

In another passage, Rowbotham argued about the nature of celestial bodies, further illustrating how his viewpoint produces a proliferation of scriptural support. First, he rejected the notion that the moon shines with reflected light, quoting Genesis 1, 16-17,“He made the Stars also; and God set them in the firmament to give light upon the earth,”and 10 other passages, before concluding, “Nothing is here said, nor is it said in any other part of Scripture, that the sun only is a great light, and that the moon only shines by reflection.” Then he argued that stars are not sunlike objects vast distances away, but rather are lights in the sky created to give light to the earth at night. These clearly mattered to him because of the entire worldview they are part of — precisely the point that Schadewald made.

Not incidentally, in making his point about the stars, Rowbotham misrepresented the scientific view by claiming, for example, “[T]he modern system of astronomy teaches that this earth cannot possibly receive light from the Stars, because of their supposed great distance from it.”  Here, and throughout his argument, he confuses the matter of starlightreaching the earth, so that we can see the stars, with the matter of starlight illuminatingthe earth, so that we can see other objects by the light of the stars. The two are entirely different matters, but Rowbotham, for all his careful attention to words when it suits him, never seems to notice. In the end, however, he makes a claim so wild, it seems to make everything else irrelevant. He says that travelers report that in many other parts of the world, starlight is “sufficiently intense to enable them to read and write.”  Yet, the confusion of terms in his argument is vital to setting the tone for this final, preposterous assertion — all of it, firmly rooted in scripture as he reads it.

Again, this may seem far removed from the idea of a flat earth. But for Rowbotham, our inability to see the connection is but further proof of how little we understand. And he had a point. The world as he envisions it is so radically different than our own that we find it difficult, if not impossible, to imagine what he takes for granted. But if the earth is flat, covered by a physical dome that contains the stars, then the descriptions he offers do make sense — and for Rowbotham, reading the Bible as he did, it’s impossible to separate one part of that cosmology from any of the others.

Rowbotham also made a further argument about the stars that goes to the subject of moral confusion and relativism — neatly anticipating the anti-Darwinians who would follow him. If, he argued, the stars are “not simply lights, as the scriptures affirm them to be, but magnificent worlds,” then there arise all sorts of theological conundrums — Are the worlds inhabited? If so, have the first parents be tempted? Have they fallen? Been redeemed? Does each world have a separate redeemer? Or is Christ the redeemer for every world? If so, was his suffering on earth sufficient for all the other worlds? And what of Adam’s fall?  Did it implicate the inhabitants of all other worlds? “The Christian philosopher must be confounded!” Rowbotham exclaimed. “If his religion be to him a living reality, he will turn with loathing or spurn with indignation and disgust, as he would a poisonous reptile, a system of astronomy which creates in his mind so much confusion and uncertainty!”  What a relief, then, to know that it’s all garbage, that earth is the only world ever created!  How strikingly similar, then, his rejection of secular astronomy was to the creationists’ rejection of secular biology.

This is but part of a larger family resemblance, as Schadewald explains in “The Evolution of Bible-Science,” a chapter he contributed to the 1984 volume, “Scientists Confront Creationism“ (adapted version here). In his introduction, Schadewald wrote:

“For two thousand years, various groups of dogmatists have tried to force the universe to fit their interpretation of Scripture. They have judged and rejected evidence and explanations according to the standard of their own religious beliefs. On scriptural grounds, some have rejected (and continue to reject) the sphericity of the earth, the Copernican system, and the evolution of life on earth. In the last two centuries, flat-earthers, geocentrists, and creationists have adopted a label for their dogmas: Bible-science.”

It’s obvious why creationists would not want to be associated with flat-earthers, but it’s not at all obvious why we should let them get away with it, given how similar their arguments, assumptions and purposes are.  In discussing the internal divisions of Bible science, Shadewald wrote:

“Though flat-earthism is as well-supported scripturally and scientifically as creationism, the creationists plainly do not want to be associated with flat-earthers….

“[Y]oung-earth creationism closely resembles the flat-earth movement. In fact, young-earth creationism, geocentrism, and flat-earthism are respectively the liberal, moderate, and conservative branches of the Bible-science tree. The intense hostility expressed by the scientific creationists toward the flat-earthers does not extend to modern geocentrists, who hover on the edge of respectability among creationists. Indeed, though the Bible is, from Genesis to Revelation, a flat-earth book, the geocentrists have combined forces with liberal creationists to cast the flat-earthers into outer darkness.”

And, indeed, the similarities are much more basic than the differences, as he quickly went on to note. In an earlier, 1981 article, he explained more fully:

“Despite their internecine warfare, Bible-Scientists are in broad agreement on a number of issues. They agree on the usefulness of the Bible as a scientific text, the weakness of mere theories, the duplicity of conventional scientists, and the impossibility of reconciling conventional science with the Bible. The creation and flat-earth movements have similar foundations and histories, and both have used similar strategies to propagate their beliefs. Indeed, both believe they are battling the same behind-the-scenes opponent.”

Today, more than 30 years after Shadewald wrote those words, belief in the “weakness of mere theories” and “the duplicity of conventional scientists” now extend well beyond Bible science, into the far reaches of the culture war as conservatives see it, including the field of global warming, where conservatives openly parade their contempt for scientific theories, and their suspicion (if not conviction) that scientists are involved in an elaborate deception (“climategate,” anyone?).  In this same article, Shadewald quoted Rowbotham:

“Let the practise of theorising be abandoned as one oppressive to the reasoning powers, fatal to the full development of truth, and, in every sense, inimical to the solid progress of sound philosophy.”

And he went on to say:

Charles K. Johnson, president of the Flat Earth Society, is absolutely vehement about scientific dishonesty. He regularly calls scientists “liars” and “demented dope fiends” and claims that the entire space program is a “carnie game.”

With these sorts of venomous sentiments now infusing not just Bible scientists, but the wider conservative audience for global warming denialism, birtherism, groundless claims of “death panels” and massive voter fraud, etc., it seems high time that progressives stop playing defense and start going on offense. Asking Christian conservatives to defend flat-earthism any time they open their mouths would be an excellent place to start. The Bible, after all, is far, far clearer in supporting a flat earth than it is in opposing abortion, much less birth control.

So, thank you, Atheists. Nice work! A fair enough challenge indeed. Unfortunately, science might not be coming down on the side we’ve all long assumed after all…

“Apollo’s Key”: Connecting CERN to the Flat Earth Puzzle and Biblical Prophesy…

This. Is. Epic. Possibly the best comprehensive documentary touching on all these issues I’ve seen thus far. The first two hours offer a very well edited and fairly exhaustive compilation of the all the typical questions involving “Flat Earth proofs”, the true Biblical support of this model, as well as the evidence for a vast Luciferian N.W.O. agenda manipulating NASA and so much more. This portion alone would stand tall as a very well made piece, weaving together TONS of information in a manner which flows very naturally and is quite easy to watch. They really put a lot of effort into making this into a solid presentation.

But then, the final 45 minutes or so gets REALLY good, examining how the “Cosmic origins agenda” followed the “space race” agenda, and shows how the two fit together quite seemlessly, as seen now with CERN being the true “rebuilt tower of Babel”, the “Rainbow Bridge”, the “stargate”, etc., with which they intend to pierce the veil, punch through the Firmament, and invade the heavens… The UN logo, amazingly, not only depicts the flat earth map, (dividing the Earth into 33 regions), but ALSO has encoded within it a depiction of the 8-spoked “wheel of time”, just like the LHC, and the same elements can be found within the logo for “2015: The Year of Light” as well.

It shows how the UFO/alien Deception fits into the Globe/NASA deception, along with the Vatican, along with the LHC, all working together to bring about the very things which God revealed to the apostle John, almost two thousand years ago. If you are already in the place where your eyes are being opened to the Flat Earth issue, and don’t have time watch the entirety of this film, then I’d say it’s still well worth your time to watch that last 45 minutes. It even talks the New World Religion of “One-ness” which I’ve talked about in previous posts.

It’s all coming together, oh man… All these pieces we’ve been looking at individually for years now. To a degree that I honestly am not sure I ever fully expected to see it. This is it, the Great Deception, unfolding before our very eyes! This IS “Mystery Babylon”… And it’s only now being revealed to us, not by our own wisdom, but by the God of Heaven and Earth, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End…

This is just one of those crazy, Holy-Spirit-confirming kind of junctures for me, to be honest, because again and again I keep coming across other people who are seeing how all these pieces fit together too. This video puts it all together far better than my own feeble abilities of explanation could do. CERN is the “key”. Lucifer’s weapon is light…

My Video on the Flat Earth, the Book of Enoch, the Bible, Prophecy, etc…

So here is the video version of my previous post on The Book of Enoch, Truthers, and Questioning the Globe.

I think it came out okay for the most part, but I was admittedly having issues with the microphone for about the first third of the vid, so hopefully the crackles from that aren’t too distracting. It does get better as it goes along. Also, I apologize if the music is too distracting for some people as well. That tends to be the biggest complaint I’ve had about all my previous videos (“The move is too loud, I can’t hear the narration…”), so, yeah, if that’s the case, I would recommend listening with headphones instead of any laptop or phone speaker. I really do hate the sound of my own voice in the end, and I will be the first to declare that my narrating skills are pretty embarrassing, so, I guess having music in the background helps me feel less “naked” while doing, audio-wise. Anyhow, enjoy.

on The Book of Enoch, Truthers, and Daring to Question the Globe…

(the following is what I am hoping will serve as an adequate transcript for a I video I hope to complete and upload by sometime next week. Figured I’d go ahead and throw the textual content of it up here)

The Book of Enoch…

bookenochFor centuries it was all but forgotten, abandoned by the majority of both Catholic and Protestant scholars as a bizarre relic, of a more superstitious and mythological age.

In recent years however, there has been a resurgence in the interest with this ancient writing. Large portions of it were discovered amongst the collections of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the famous Caves at Qumran. Many people who believe that the eschatological prophecies of the Bible are increasingly beginning to be fulfilled in our time, have also concluded that there is a great deal of relevance to be found in the book of Enoch, towards the events we see unfolding. Indeed, the ancient mystery schools, which are the occultic heritage of the modern day Luciferian, New World Order agenda, could be said to trace their origins all the way back to the days before the Flood, when the 200 Watcher angels, prompted by Azazel, or Satan, abandoned their heavenly posts and came down to Earth, taking human women as their wives, who bore to them hybrid offspring, giants, called the Nephilim, who ravaged the Earth until almost all of Creation was corrupted.

nephilim2Students of prophecy today can look at these events in our distant past, and conclude that it might very well bode as a warning for what kinds of genetic abominations might be incorporated into the anti-christ’s One World Kingdom, which is right now being rapidly put into place. Many teachers such as Chuck Missler, Tom Horn, Doug Hamp and others, have helped reintroduce the book of Enoch, pointing out things such as the insufficiency and contradictory nature of the “Sethite theory”, (commonly used for generations to explain away the passages in Genesis 6 which speak about the Nephilim), and how books in the New Testament refer to it as well, the book of Jude quoting from Enoch directly, and calling it “prophecy”. Indeed, the topic of Enoch, the Nephilim and how the fallen Watchers taught mankind all sorts of wicked knowledge, such as sorcery and astrology and warfare and seduction, is a far more widely accepted idea than it was even just ten years ago. Secular tv shows such as “ancient aliens” have even helped bring awareness of the book’s existence to the mainstream…

Enter the Flat Earth…

As most of you know, in the past six months or so, the internet has seen an sudden and unexpected exponential rise in the discussion surrounding the question of the true nature of the Earth itself, as well our universe as a whole. Bolstered by years of questionable NASA footage, an increasing awareness of how much the government and it’s various agencies lie to the public about all manner of things, and the realization that there are people behind the scenes manipulating virtually every aspect of what we are told is reality, this really shouldn’t be all that surprising.

Just a few months ago, I would’ve scoffed at the idea of a Flat Earth just as heartily as anyone else. About a year prior to that, I would’ve still been rolling my eyes at the suggestion that the Apollo missions didn’t actually make it to the moon’s surface. Rewind five years before that, and I was still unable to conceive of the notion that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by elements within the American government itself.

In each case, my initial disbelief was confronted by some new piece of data which could not be made to conform to the official narrative. The intrusion of new data would refuse to go away, and agitate my thoughts like a burr under a saddle, prompting deeper investigation, until the questions grew into skepticism, and then skepticism grew towards finally having to question, and perhaps rethink, a framework of beliefs which I had held for a very, very long time.

So, this is what strikes me as particularly interesting, and rather odd actually, in terms of this current debate going on within the quote “Truth movement” around the flat Earth. Especially in terms of so many of my fellow Christians, who on the one hand have for YEARS been talking about the Book of Enoch, and Genesis 6 and the Nephilim and so on, but now when it comes to this Flat Earth issue, I find it ironic that so many of them appear all too ready to just write it off as a “distraction” or a “psy-op” or whatever else, and get in line with the scoffers before really doing much in-depth investigation on their own, (Rob Skiba excluded!)

ane-cosmography-simpleThe reason I find it so ironic, is that if you really take a look at all that the Book of Enoch talks about, you will quickly see that it speaks about far more than just the Watchers coming down and creating the Nephilim. The majority of the Book actually deals with how Enoch is basically taken and given a tour of the entire Cosmos by a heavenly angel, and it is quite hard to deny the degree to which his descriptions fall right in line with the basic ancient Hebrew model of the Flat Earth. Enoch describes the Earth having distinct edges, there are “portals” and “gates” at each of the four cardinal directions. There are “storehouses” for certain elements such as the winds, the lightning and thunder, and the frost. It speaks about the four corners, about the four pillars, and a great deal about the firmament as well, above which is the very throne room of God, just as the typical ancient cosmology reflects. There are literal, cave-like pits under the Earth, a literal Sheol, as well as another place, a dry, desert-like place of chaos, which has no water either above or below it. An “outer darkness”, where certain angels and spirits are held imprisoned until the Day of Judgement.zodpic

Now, beyond all of this, Enoch speaks a great deal of not only the basic idea of the Earth being a plane, covered by the firmament, with water both above and below, etc., but also about how there are all these various orders of angelic beings, who have been assigned different jobs basically, in accordance with the different physical elements of the Earth, sky, heavens, and so on. In this “Enochian cosmology”, the Creation is not merely material and mechanical, but rather vastly multi-dimensional and involving the routine participation of immortal, sentient beings in the daily function of all that is going on around us. The sun and moon and stars are all shown to be intentioned by God to follow their assigned circuits, as the spirits assigned to these duties fulfill them. The “Luminaries” are said to even have dwellings or abodes within the heavens, as though they have actual doors in the firmament which lead to their own little angelic apartments! In the context of all of this, I find it most interesting then to consider the idea of the “Fallen Stars”, the fallen Watcher angels, juxtaposed against the idea of the “wandering stars”, those bodies today we call the planets, envisioning them to be other spherical planetoids, millions of miles away, orbiting the sun. But are we sure that’s really what they actually are? Do we even have a single photograph of a planet, which hasn’t actually been a “composite” or just an outright painting or CGI rendering…?

Anyhow, the fundamental question regarding all this extremely mythological stuff from the book of Enoch which speaks of luminaries and firmaments and such, is ultimately; “Is this ‘Enochian Cosmology’ really just a more detailed examination of what already can be found in the Biblical description?”

flatmapI find it to be quite parallel to the same sort of question that is so often asked when dealing with Enoch in the context of the Nephilim question. Does the Bible actually already teach this basic idea that “the Sons of God” had offspring with the “daughters of men”? Like I said, more and more people are beginning to agree that in fact it does, and amazingly, by doing so are then realizing that by letting this piece back into the Biblical puzzle, it actually helps to explain a LOT about other parts of the Bible which were previously rather confusing as well, such as the matter of why God commanded the Israelites to wipe out certain tribes entirely from Canaan, or why Paul makes that bizarre comment about women covering their heads “because of the angels”, or why demons freak out when Jesus threatens to cast them into the Abyss, and so on.

So, when we look seriously at that question, when we start to take a fresh look at the traditional canonical scriptures, suspending for a moment all of our modern assumptions about how it does actually describe a globe Earth, then what do we really start to find…?

I honestly can’t tell anyone what to think, because I do believe that this is one of those issues which really is first dependent on one’s own predetermined level of openness. It is really pointless to try and force someone to question something which they are internally quite unprepared to question. All I can really speak for is myself, and to the fact that when I actually began to start taking a new look at the Bible, to see if it really could be said to describe not just a globe but a vast, expansive, Copernican-esque universe, or, instead something which more closely resembles the “dome idea”, well, I was pretty amazed at what I very quickly began to see.

Right off the bat, you can start there in Genesis 1, where it says God hovered over the “waters”. What waters? Water, before an Earth? Weird… And then, right there, he separates the waters, and makes the “sky”. Right there, in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible, it’s talking about the firmament… The earth is created before even the sun, moon and stars. Light was created and separated from darkness, before God created any of the light sources. (again, weird…) And on it goes from there. You go through books like Psalms, or the prophets, and see it talking about the corners of the earth, the earth being fixed and unmovable, the sky being stretched out like a tent. You get to the book of Job, and the last few chapters are intensively descriptive of a dynamic, Enochian flat Earth model. It even mentions “Leviathan”, the massive sea creature, which lurks in the water depths surrounding the Earth’s foundations. In Job, God talks about it like a literal creature.

There is so much to reconsider from this alternate vantage point. The ascension of Jesus, as well as His triumphant return, where the Bible says everyone on the Earth will see Him in His glory… (kind of hard to imagine how that works on a ball Earth..) I think about the Tower of Babel, I re-evaluate things like “Jacob’s Ladder”. The “Star of Bethlehem”, suddenly seems to make a lot more sense within this Cosmology as well. Then you get to Revelation, and again, the direct connection between angels and stars is virtually undeniable. How do entire stars fall to Earth, if they are millions of miles away, comprised of massive nuclear explosions many times larger than Earth? How do such falling stars have names, and personification? How DOES the sky actually get “rolled up like a scroll”…? There are so many verses, so many descriptions, which start to take on new life, and make a lot more sense, when we allow ourselves to consider them through a paradigm that is yes, rejected and ridiculed by mainstream scientific institutions. (the same institutions, remember, which also scoff at anyone who doesn’t accept that we are all evolved hairless apes, and that everything in the Universe essentially created itself out of one single point of infinitely compressed matter, billions of years ago…)

1120HOLDING20BACK20THE20FOUR20WINDSSo… The question I would end with is for my fellow Christian brothers and sisters, my fellow students of Biblical prophecy, and particularly, my fellow adherents of the “Genesis 6 paradigm”, who are so fond of talking about Matthew 24 and how “as in the days of Noah, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be”, and pointing to the Book of Enoch as an authentic, “Biblically-endorsed” work that people should take seriously, because of all the End Times ramifications and implications involving things like transhumanism and alien deceptions and everything else, is this: HOW does one pick and choose which portions of I Enoch to take seriously? How can the Nephilim idea be emphasized so heavily and so routinely, even though that in itself is largely rejected and ridiculed, both by mainstream Christianity and the secular world, while the BULK of the content in that Book which would lend great weight to the argument for investigating much further the possibility that the Earth might INDEED be flat, and might very well have a dome-like firmament, and the sun, moon and start might be very, very close, is summarily rejected?

Just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. I don’t get how “Truthers”, whether Christian or non, for that matter, can make these kinds of statements about how the Flat Earth issue could “destroy the credibility of the Truth movement” and so on.. Am I confused, or isn’t the solitary objective of the “Truth Movement” supposed to be the unhindered, unapologetic quest to seek the TRUTH, no matter how laughable or counter-cultural or “conspiratorially wacky” it might seem to the mass majority?

Isn’t the idea supposed to be that there are no “stupid questions”, only stupid assumptions? And I find this PARTICULARLY weird when it comes to my fellow “Christian Truthers”! I mean, really!? You’re worried about appearing “credible”, or not looking like a crazy person, when you’re already talking about UFO’s being demonic and Nephilim hybrids and CERN being some kind of interdimensional portal that might open the Abyss in Revelation, and so on???? That ship of “perceived credibility” has sailed my friends. It was gone from the mainstream world when you started questioning things like the official narrative of 9/11, and it was even gone from the secular “Truthers” when you started talking about the Bible being true, and Jesus dying for our sins, and the Book of Revelation being something that is being fulfilled, right now, before our very eyes.

I honestly don’t care anymore about being viewed as “crazy” by other people. I am not afraid to ask questions that most people would find insufferable, or to entertain notions of conspiracies and cover-ups that most people would reject outright, simply because they cannot allow themselves to imagine that so many millions of people could all be fooled in such a way. But I know we’ve all been fooled, in all kinds of ways, and I myself have been no exception. I’ve had to cross that bridge of paradigm-reconstruction many times now, and I actually find it much less painful of a process nowadays than I used to.

I find it quite amazing, really, that so many people who are seriously questioning the globe model, and researching the possibility of the Earth being a plane, doing experiments with curvature and re-examining all the things we have been taught as unquestionable fact since we started kindergarten, so many of these folks, are not Christians, but atheists, agnostics, or people with all kinds of different “spiritualistic” beliefs. You’ve got people believing that our world is just one “puddle”, and that it sits on an infinite plane, a sheet of ice, riddled with an infinite number of other “puddle systems”, or other people who basically look at the Earth and the sky and the heavenly bodies as a huge collection of holograms and mechanistic fakery, the “Dark City” concept, and all sorts of other interesting theories about what the World is truly like.

So it’s quite odd to me, that for people who claim to believe in the Bible and take it as literal Truth, that we would find such questioning to be at all threatening, when we ALREADY believe in the realm of the Supernatural, in the existence of an Eternity beyond our temporal existence, in angels and demons and spiritual warfare between the two… Does the shape of the Earth threaten to change any of that? Has anyone started out questioning the globe, and by doing so eventually found themselves rejecting the Gospel, or abandoning the cross, because they couldn’t find proof that the Earth is really curved…?

Grey_Alien4I haven’t heard a single testimony of that kind as of yet, but I sure have encountered a lot of people who have wound up rejecting the Bible, and the Creator, in favor of the established “scientific fact” of an infinite, evolving Universe…. I know many people today, who bristle at the idea of an all-powerful God, with His oppressive morality, and instead prefer the prospect of there being “millions of other worlds out there”, potentially filled with an endless array of other intelligent species and “fellow travelers in the Evolutionary journey”. The “Star Trek Gospel” is a very real thing in our time, and more and more people are gravitating towards putting their hope in the possibility of having our “big brothers from Space” come along, and give us a little Evolutionary boost in our advancement towards godhood.

So that’s my rant. You can decide for yourself, if the “crazy” idea of a geocentric, angelically administrated Cosmos, where humanity is truly the focal point of Creation, and deemed worthy of being redeemed by Christ’s sacrifice, is something that fits within the description of Enoch, and most importantly the rest of the Bible. But to be able to make that decision, you have to be courageous enough to actually look. You have to be brave enough to ask those crazy questions for yourself…

The Four-Cornered Earth…?

“And He will lift up a standard for the nations And assemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.” Isaiah 11:12

One of the most interesting aspects of considering the staggering possibility of the Earth truly being a flat plane, is the notion that is that the “ends of the Earth” is no longer simply just some kind of figurative expression, but could in fact could be a simple literal truth. Along with this idea comes the proposition of the “four cardinal points” being four literal, equidistant terminal locations, as well as these four corners/points being connected to the four winds, and four angels.

“Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, “Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.’” – Ezekiel 37:9

“And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”- Matthew 24:31

Revelation 7:1
After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.

Revelation 20:8
and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

Marble_Mosaic_Wind_Rose_with_cardinal_points.jpg_220x220The verse from Revelation 7 I find particularly interesting, because of the fact that it describes the four angels in conjunction with the four corners, holding back the four winds, which is a rather bizarre thing indeed to try and imagine just what that means, or how that would really look/work, if the Earth was a globe. If the four corners are simply metaphorical (since a ball has no literal corners) then are the angels simply metaphorical too…? Bit of a slippery slope there, if you ask me. Biblical scholars go to extreme lengths in order to explain how the four corners is not literal, and just means the “extreme ends of the Earth”. But if you think about it, on a Globe Earth, you don’t even have “extreme ends”. You have nothing from which to objectively call anything an “extremity”, aside from cultural notions of one’s particular region being towards the “center” (i.e. the Roman Empire, the Middle East, whatever…)

Now… Much like the very interesting parallels between the thematic content of Jude and Peter in relation to the book of Enoch, there are some incredibly noteworthy connections to be found between Revelation and Enoch as well, when it comes to the idea of corners, angels, and winds…

“I then surveyed the receptacles of all the winds, perceiving that they contributed to adorn the whole creation, and to preserve the foundation of the earth. I surveyed the stone which supports the corners of the earth. I also beheld the four winds, which bear up the earth, and the firmament of heaven. And I beheld the winds occupying the exalted sky. Arising in the midst of heaven and of earth, and constituting the pillars of heaven. I saw the inds which turn the sky, which cause the orb of the sun and of all the stars to set; and over the earth I saw the winds which support the clouds. I saw the path of the angels.” Enoch 18:1-7

“And at the extremities of the earth I beheld twelve gates open for all the winds, from which they proceed and blow over the earth. Three of them are open in the front of heaven, three in the west, three on the right side of heaven, and three on the left. The first three are those which are towards the east, three are towards the north, three behind those which are upon the left, towards the south, and three on the west. From four of them proceed winds of blessing, and of health; and from eight proceed winds of punishment; when they are sent to destroy the earth, and the heaven above it, all its inhabitants, and all which are in the waters, or on dry land.” Book of Enoch, chapter 75:1-3

“The first wind is called the eastern, because it is the first. The second is called the south, because the Most High there descends, and frequently there descends he who is blessed for ever. The western wind has the name of diminution, because there all the luminaries of heaven are diminished, and descend. The fourth wind, which is named the north, is divided into three parts; one of which is for the habitation of man; another for seas of water, with valleys, woods, rivers, shady places, and snow; and the third part contains paradise.” Enoch, chapter 76:1-4

The more I look into this topic of “Enochian cosmology”, the more pressed I feel towards the ultimate question of “Is Enochian cosmology really just Biblical cosmology, which has not been hammered into conforming to an assortment of materialistic, heliocentric concepts which have bombarded Biblical scholars for centuries, all of which culminates in the post-modern, completely allegorized form of Biblical interpretation that is so prevalent today?” I think more and more I am becoming convinced that the answer is a simple yes.

Pencil drawing I made of a slightly abstracted depiction of the flat earth, within the Firmament, surrounded by “the waters” above and below, and pondering the existence of corners, portals, winds, cardinal points existing somehow, in a quite literal sense…
