Flat Earth: “The Way Out”…

Escape…

It is one of the most powerful themes which resonates throughout the tapestry of human experience, it permeates the spectrum of recorded literature, religious attention, political ideology, spiritual reflection…

From ancient mythology and oral traditions, down to present-day pop culture, this broader motif comes back again, and again, and again…

There certainly seems to be something about the human condition which instinctively recognizes an underlying, incessant, pull…

To escape, to surpass, to emerge, to exit…

Not only in the context of individual people’s specific circumstances, whether embedded in real history, or just a work of fiction, but, in the broadest sense. Somehow, our individual experiences which innately reject confinement, resist restriction, abhor oppression, these seem to connect us all to the larger, human story. A larger quest. A deeper need.

And of course, the Flat Earth topic is fascinating in how it serves to bring particular facet of our human nature into such sharper focus.

Is at least part of the reason why so many people have such a violent and repulsive reaction to the idea of an enclosed world? Does it perhaps have to do with even more than just all the propaganda and programming, all the humanistic pride invested in our perceived scientific understanding, and actually connect to soomething on a more sub-conscious, even spiritual level..?

Is it possible that the fraudulent invention of a massive, virtually infinite, deep space cosmology, was ultimately easy enough to pass off, because deep-down, we hate the idea of there being walls of any kind? Hate even the suggestion of limitation?
And how does the recognition of the Earth and cosmos itself being a much more confined, finite thing, relate to all the other forms of restriction, oppression, and control being perpertrated upon humanity by this ever-encroaching system being built all around us…?

What do these “Elite”, really know..?

What are they hiding? What are they seeking to accomplish?
Is it more land? Far off somewhere across an icy, infintie plain?

Is it the Firmament? Do they hope to finally break through to waters above?

Do they intend to use secret technology to create some kind of inter-dimensional portal, effectively hopping the wall by defying the laws of time and space..?
What are they doing? What is going on? And what does it mean for us? Are we trapped? Is there some realistic dream of ascension? Can we too transcend whatever limits exist in the cosmos, and ourselves one day soar into the heavens, whatever that actually means…?

What IS on the other side…..???

These are of course the sorts of questions which are inevitably raised when one comes face to face with the prospect of an enclosed world cosmology. The Question of the Creator, the Builder, the Designer. The Question of what it’s all for, what we’re all “in here” to do…

Some people want to merely focus on the Flat Earth itself, as some kind of unifying principle, some kind of banner under which everyone should be content to find community and common ground, and while I very much appreciate these sentiments to a certain degree, ultimately I find myself reflecting upon the fact that way back in the earlier stages of history, when virtually ALL cultures and peoples believed in an enclosed world, this commonality did not by itself translate into the absence of all the same ills we tire of today. It did not mean the absence of tyranny, the absence of empire, the absence oppression, or war, or plunder. It did not prevent mankind from splitting into endless factions based on the struggle for power and resources. It did not bring peace…

And interestingly enough, in virtually all of these ancient cultures which shared the broader belief in an enclosed cosmology, there was one singular perspective which set itself out as distinct from the rest…

The majority of these ancient kingdoms and cultures held some form of the view that civilization itself was initiated and guided by an array of advanced beings who descended from the heavens above. The Annunaki, the “gods”, the Watchers, the serpent-kings… They were described by many names, but in every case they were revered as the ones who held the keys for mankind to learn the secrets necessary to perfect himself, and one day ascend back to where these magnificent creatures originated from…

But then in the midst of all these traditions, there was one which stood apart.
In the conviction of this small, isolated line of people, the only being worth trusting was the Creator Himself. The Eternal one. The God who made everything, even the host of angelic creatures, in both the heavens, and below.

And this God, this Creator who claimed to stand above all other figures of worship, had a most singularly unique appraisal of the condition of man…

Unlike the teachings of all the other so-called “gods”, this message did not claim that humans could one day climb the ladder of progress to the eventuality of a long-sought quantum leap in consciousness. There was no cyclical wheel of birth, death, and rebirth, no mountain of pious works to hope to accomplish, no secret rituals to learn and unlock the mysteries thereof..

You see, among all these centers of civilization and alleged progress, was a universal sense of longing, a striving, a recognition of the underlying need to break free. To escape… And these false, finite, fallen “gods” provided an endless array of ways by which men and woman sought to enlist the assistence of these beings, in the quest for enlightenment, for ascension.

Countless generations in times past devoted themselves to the worship of these idols, in the hope of finding that elusive way out, through magical arts, through arduous pilgrimages, through the building of elaborate temples and monolithic structures, even through the sacrifice of their own children. Yet the longing endured, the key to this prison of humanity never being attained…

Mankind could never escape his own self, his own internal nature, and this is what sets the God of Abraham apart from all others. The God of the Bible, in contrast, tells us the unwelcome news that no matter what mystical secrets we might try to seek out, no matter what spiritual disciplines we might apply, no matter what towers we build, no matter what machines we might construct, there is simply, no way out.

No way out, on our own, because ultimately that which imprisons us is not the lack of some secret knowledge, or third-eye activation, or our “ego”, or even the physical universe itself, but rather, our own rebellious souls.

The reality of the sinful condition of man, as taught in the Bible, is unlike anything else, in any other philosophy, theology, or cosmology. It is the prison which we are by far most hesitant to acknowledge, and as such we prefer to instead pound against ever other type of wall imaginable, in our ceaseless quest to break free from the feeling of bondage. We continue turning to idols, appealing to dreams of progress, of eventually conquering the universe, whether in the context of materialistic space-travel, or transcending the physical altogether and achieving “pure consciousness”…

But Jesus…

Jesus, as the central figure of the Bible, (in both the Old and New Testament..) stands alone. As the pivotal piece of the Biblical message, which proclaims first a finite, fixed, enclosed, immovable Earth, and then us, fallen humanity, finite, enclosed, imprisoned in our sin, only Jesus provides a way of escape. A way out…
There is an irony in the comparison of both enclosed, Flat Earth cosmology, and Big-Bang Copernican cosmology, in the sense that in BOTH paradigms, one can set out to study and understand everything in the cosmos from the Earth, to the Sun, moon and stars, and yet, never take the time to intently study the reality of their own heart. Never stop and take stock of their own life, their own state, their own innermost being…

This is what I challenge EVERYONE to do, above all else. Before seeking to comprehend the amazing reality of the earth, or the heavens, to simply get honest with yourself. To ask yourself if perhaps indeed this prison of sin in your own life, as the Bible describes, might indeed be some of the most powerful evidence of all that what the Bible says is really true.

Because the most beautiful news in the entire World, is that Jesus broke down the prison door. He laid down His own life, in order to become the Door, the Gate, the Portal, to Everything that humanity has hungered to get back to since the Beginning… He is the only way out. The only bridge between Heaven and Earth, between death and life, the only opening the impervious Firmament seperating us from the Creator Himself, through which we can freely walk through and enter into the Kingdom of the Father.

Many people out there are under the impression that the Bible is simply another tool of control by the lying, murderous, “Elites”, but yet, if you dare to open up the Bible yourself, and read what it itself says, I am convinced that you will quickly begin to see how utterly false this claim really is. Those who seek to control humanity and break through the barriers apart from God, are only kidding themselves. In their futility they insist upon creating their own door, to eternity, to godhood. But you and I can make that same mistake.

I pray that there are at least a small few of you out there, who hear this, and recongize that there is something resoundingly true about what I am saying, and if so, that you would seek the One who holds the Key. That you would seek Jesus. Ask Him. Cry out to Him. He will hear you. He always does. He’s right there waiting.

“Like a Pavement of Sapphire Stone” (video)

Okay, so I already wrote about this back in December, but ever since then I was hoping to throw something on it into video form, and this week I finally got around to it.

So I read the excerpt from Exodus 24, where it says that Moses and the elders actually “saw God”, walking on top of what looked like a pavement made of sapphire, and then I get into talking about this verse in conjunction with all of the other “Firmament verses” in the Bible, and then spend a fair amount of time just talking about the topic of Biblical literalism as a whole.

“Like A Pavement Made of Sapphire”…

Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up, and they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear like the sky itself. (Exodus 24:9,10)

I had someone leave me a comment on YT yesterday, sharing this verse. Yet again, I find myself marveling at how these little “crumbs” are sprinkled all throughout the Bible, and yet we managed to somehow ignore them, or just shrug our shoulders and keep on reading…

I have to admit that I have probably allowed that thing to happen which I was afraid of, that is, let myself get slowly pulled away from writing as I’ve devoted more and more time to making videos and engaging with people over on that whole platform. I am sorry for that, but it’s just kind of been unavoidable I guess. I only have so much time I can devote to “non-nuclear-family stuff”, so somewhere, something has to suffer, now that I’ve launched into the video medium and it really takes SO much more time and energy to make even a simple video than it does to write a blog post.

But… Back to this verse! Is that not fantastic!? Especially when you cross-reference it with what we find in Ezekiel 1:

And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the color of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings. And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. (verses 22-26)

And also in Ezekiel 10:

Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. (verse 1)

I mean, it’s really there you guys. It’s in the Scriptures… From Genesis on through to Revelation. The Firmament. The “dome”. The “glass ceiling”. Call it what you want.

It’s just kinda funny to me, because I keep getting in these discussions with certain people, who adamantly insist that the Bible absolutely does not describe an enclosed, flat world (as they cling to Isaiah 40:22 with all their might…), and it’s like they just want to be shown some singular “knock out proof text” to point them to an undeniable FE cosmology.

But… It’s just not that easy, unfortunately. Sorry guys. It’s actually more in line with the same way we understand what the Bible says about all kinds of topics, be it the age of the Earth, or the question of “Creationist Evolution”, or the nature of angelic beings, or the atonement of the Cross, or the Judgment on the Last Day, etc. In every case, to get the “fullest picture”, you have to take ALL the pertinent verses which speak towards it, and allow them to cohere together in the way that is most sensible.

And, well… At this point there is simply no WAY I can compile all these various segments which speak about the Firmament, the “sapphire pavement”, the “crystal sea”, etc., etc., and in good conscience cram that back into some kind of convoluted theological interpretation of the heliocentric model. And I really do feel that’s what is being done. There’s no other way to see it now. It’s really no different than when someone tries to make Genesis conform to what modern science claims about the “scientific facts” of Evolution, or how Noah’s Flood couldn’t have possibly covered the entire Earth, etc. To do that you have to mangle the verses so badly, ignore what it says so plainly. You have to be more committed to the “truth” being presented by the atheistic world, than to an honest reading of the text.

There are plenty of people out there willing to do this when it comes to regarding the Bible higher than the false claims of Evolution, but once again I ask (and I will continue to ask…), are you willing to do the same thing with OTHER claims being made by modern “science”?

Are you willing to at least question these things which the Fallen world holds to be oh so irrefutable?

Are you willing to risk looking foolish in the eyes of the World, in order to seek the ‘simple’ wisdom of God…?

Anyhow, I got so busy making and uploading videos recently I never got around to posting the latest ones here. So, here they are. Neither are specifically talking about the Firmament, but, it’s all still related I suppose, in terms of the broader category of FE Cosmology…

The “Barren Land”…

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places* seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’” Luke 11:24 (*sometimes translated “arid places“)

“…But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.” Psalm 68:6

“And in the columns of heaven I beheld fires, which descended without number, but neither on high, nor into the deep. Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it; nor anything on wing; but the spot was desolate.
And there I beheld seven stars, like great blazing mountains, and like spirits entreating me. Then the angel said, This place, until the consummation of heaven and earth, will be the prison of the stars, and the host of heaven. The stars which roll over fire are those which transgressed the commandment of God before their time arrived; for they came not in their proper season. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year.” 1 Enoch 18:13-16

(another version says ” And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no birds, but it was a waste and horrible place.”)

I have for a while now been a fan of Round Saturn’s Eye and his videos, (and continue to be, finding validity in both his personal testimony and confession of the Gospel), and there is one theme that pops up very frequently in his material, which just recently became a lot more clear to me.

He is constantly mentioning this idea/imagery of the “barren land“. He talks about it again and again and again and again, often times when breaking down the embedded symbolism in some commercial or movie or Olympic ceremony, or whatever, whenever some kind of desert-looking, salt-flats type of scenery is being shown. And it’s amazing how often this occurs, these shots of very Luciferian and nephilim related themes, constantly being filmed with a backdrop of this barren, desert landscape. And after a while, I was really starting to wonder, what is the deal with this “barren land” stuff, what is that supposed to symbolize?

Well recently when I was reading back through the chapters of 1 Enoch, (in the interest of seeing more of what it has to say regarding flat Earth ideas or “Enochian cosmology” etc.), I was reading that portion in the 18th chapter, where it is talking about when Enoch is being shown the place where the fallen Watchers are to be imprisoned until the Day of Judgement (“until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year…”)

Suddenly the light bulb clicked on. I immediately thought of that verse where Jesus casts the evil spirit out of the mute man, and then uses the parable of tying up a strong man in a house, to explain about how demons leave a person, and then “travel through arid places”, before coming back to the cleaned “house” (person), this time bringing along seven more spirits more evil than itself.

That verse has always been one of those ones that just made very little sense to me, where eventually you just shrug your shoulders and move on, figuring that well, Jesus obviously knows what he’s talking about, so, okay!

I had always been really confused by what “arid places” could mean, or why Jesus would say it like that, if he was describing sort of how a demon would just “fly around in the air” after being cast out. Were demons bound to dry air? Were they somehow pulled towards the desert? Hmmmm. Of course, that’s not what any of us who believe in the reality of demonic spirits would realistically think, because we logically we understand that these spirits are bound within a certain dimensional barrier somehow. They don’t literally fly through the physical air molecules like a mist, prowling for people to inhabit.

But here again, this “barren land” realization is part of a larger theme I’ve been exploring lately, involving this broader question of there being “places” in a dimensional sense.

Most of us who believe in some form of spirituality are probably already likely to believe in this already, on some conceptual level at least. I’d say that I more or less always did, but I suppose it is only now that I am beginning to stretch my imagination further, in pondering just how much this dimensional aspect may permeate our reality, our entire universe…

We tend to think of other “dimensions” as being a fairly ethereal thing. At least I’d say I did. But maybe now that I’ve been taking a much more serious look into things like the concept of the “firmament”, or the idea of the stars themselves being both a physical aspect of our Created world, and also, somehow, attached to luminous, angelic beings. The “multidimensional universe”… This concept has taken such a hold of me. My whole comprehension of the distinctions between what we call “physical”, and what we call “spirit”, seems so much more complex, and yet, so much simpler at the same time now.

In the Book of Enoch, he basically describes being taken up into the heavens, where he talks about walls being built of “crystal stones”, and “portals” (basically doorways) and rings and pillars of fire, etc. He sees mountains made of gems and fountains in the deep, etc., and He sees the very throne of God. The “desolate place” where the Watchers and spirits are imprisoned, is described as having no water in it, as well as no water OVER it either. I find that very interesting. It propels this notion that the firmament over our own place of existence does indeed have water OVER it. This actually makes a lot of sense, when we think about the Great Flood and other things, and I have also wondered if the “sea of glass” or “sea of crystal” described in Revelation and elsewhere, doesn’t in fact pertain to something going on at the top of firmament…(!?) It’s very weird, but also very thrilling too, to start thinking of all these possibilities in a more literal, yet “multi-dimensional” way.

I suppose the reason this would be of any real practical significance for us, at least while we’re still on this side of eternity, is when considered in the context of all that is progressing in the World right now, in terms of things like CERN, and the Luciferian agenda, etc. The Bible speaks of a time where the events are so incredible, amazing, and terrifying, that men essentially become paralyzed with fear.
I do believe that part of keeping our Faith in the times ahead, involves taking a deep look at the scriptures and at least being willing to keep an open mind towards a broader cosmology that might be a far cry from the traditional modernistic, dichotomous mentality that mainstream Evangelicalism has held, particularly in the last century or two. We need to be in such a place as to not be surprised or overwhelmed by whatever crazy or mind-blowing things may transpire in the coming times. We should be able to stand firm, and unmoved, even if we WERE to witness things as fantastic and frightening as the spiritual veil being torn, and entities from the dimensional realm of the “barren land” being unleashed upon our own plane of earthly existence for a short time.

I do believe this is what they have been conspiring FOR, all these millennia. It was the Bible prophecies will take place, when it speaks of Apollo, or Abaddon, coming up out the Abyss, out of the “pit”, with his hordes. It a very real place, this desolate land…

It’s gonna get weird, folks. But we should not be shocked or dismayed by any of it. The scriptures tell us who the victor is, who is the King over heaven and earth, death and hades, over every dimension, every creature, every spirit. We know Who will judge all, when the Books are opened, and the dead are raised, and we look forward to that Day…
