“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…

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??

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.
