FLAT EARTH THEORY
A renewed flat-Earth hoax on the Internet is a CIA psyop to see how gullible people are.
It is expanding into every crevice of society.
In 1981, the CIA director William Casey said in his first staff meeting,
“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
Many don’t believe he said it!
While all this is happening, the message of AliYahu is shaking everything.
Today we are witnessing the controversy between AliYahu (Elijah) and the prophets of Baal (LORD) as prophesied (Mal. 4:1-6).
The Name of Yahusha is being shouted from the rooftops, and the foundations of the reign of Babel are shaking.
Our enemy is pulling out all the stops (pipe organ lingo) to distract the message of the Truth, but Yahusha is getting ready to roar.
We must stay focused on what unites us and not on what divides us.
It's only a distraction, but these divisive quarrels over whether the Earth is flat or spherical are causing confusion.
Since the 90’s, people on the Internet are doubting the Earth is a sphere, or that it orbits the Sun. They claim the Moon landings were faked, as well as all the pictures of Earth taken from satellites.
They don’t believe eye-witness accounts because they have been told no one can leave the atmosphere due to radiation.
It’s true that the Earth seems flat from our perspective, so this makes people believe that all the photos of the planet from space are fakes. Even if we assume there is a conspiracy, there is nothing offered as a possible motive for making everyone believe the Earth is a sphere.
It’s an argument, and nothing more.
Relative to the Earth, we are less than the size of bacteria on a football field, so our local observation is no proof of any kind. People are reverting in their beliefs to Medieval times, and not trusting the photographic evidence. The Scripture at YashaYahu 40:22-23 refers to the roundness to the Earth by using the Hebrew word KUG:
“It is He Who sits above the circle of the arets, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the shamayim like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in, Who brings princes to naught, shall make the rulers of the arets as emptiness.” The word KUG can mean circle, ball, roundness, sphere, globe, arc, or curvature.
It’s a synonym for the word DUR. This is denied by those who insist there is a conspiracy to make us believe the Earth is a sphere. A synonym is a word that has the same or similar meaning to other words, such as happy, joyful, or elated. We should remain joyful.
Many thousands of satellites orbit our planet making communication with any remote location possible. They detect the speed we are moving in our car, and they are at an orbital distance and speed to maintain their position. They don’t fall because their orbit matches the rotation of the Earth.
Some don’t believe the Earth is rotating, and the movement of the stars around the north and south pole stars is due to the stars all moving around the Earth.
How they seem to rotate around a central point in ever-larger circles the further they are from the center is a mystery, until one realizes it’s not the stars, but the Earth that’s turning on its axis.
That would indicate the Earth is a globe, so it has to be denied by flat-Earthers.
The northern stars rotate in the opposite direction from the southern stars.
This too, is a mystery for flat-Earthers.
What is impossible to explain for a flat Earther is this:
What is impossible to explain for a flat Earther is this:
The stars seen in the southern hemisphere are not the same stars
seen in the northern hemisphere, and vise-versa.
The stars seen in the southern hemisphere are not the same stars seen in the northern hemisphere, and vise-versa.
The Earth's surface has been measured and its diameter and circumference is
so accurate it is known there is a slightly oblate shape at the equatorial
region. This is due to the centrifugal force being greatest at the outer most
distance from the axis of rotation. The Sun moves minimally relative to the
background stars over each 24-hour period, showing it is the Earth that is
rotating and not the Sun going around the Earth in that short time.

GALILEO & BELLARMINE
The Inquisition arrested Galileo for proving the Copernican Theory: that the Earth orbits the Sun. Today this idea is being questioned, as well as the idea of a spherical Earth.
Many are blaming NASA for a great conspiratorial agenda, but no one knows what there is to be gained by believing in a sphere, or a flat shape. The Inquisition put Galileo on trial in 1633 for the heretical idea of Heliocentricity.
Galileo was condemned and excommunicated, but his life was spared when he recanted under pain of death for his ideas. We should not condemn anyone for thinking the Earth is flat, round, cubical, or its relationship to the Sun and Moon.
People understand things in the best way they can.
ARCHIMEDES of SYRACUSE
A Greek inventor, mathematician, physicist, engineer, and astronomer, Archimedes of Syracuse, was born on the island of Sicily in 287 BCE. He designed compound pulleys to transfer great weights with ease, and screw pumps for irrigation. He used parabolic-shaped mirrors and the Sun to burn enemy ships coming to attack his city. He was the original
“Man With The Golden Gun.”
<![if !vml]> <![endif]>
Many of Archimedes' insights waited for the Renaissance (beginning 14th century) to be realized.
People no longer recall how ships would appear on the horizon of the ocean as they approached land. From the shore, they would only see the tiny tops of the masts, and as the ship grew closer more of the ship came into view.
If the Earth were flat, the ship would appear to be a complete object, a small version of itself. This has been demonstrated for centuries as people would wait for ships to come in somewhat like we see people lean out to look for their bus to arrive. My goal here is not to ridicule others’ viewpoints, but to show mine knowing there are different ideas that seem just as valid to others.
We all have flaws, limitations, and misinterpretations.
We are not all on the same page, yet Yahusha loves us all in spite of ourselves. Everyone cannot be an Archimedes, Einstein, or work for NASA. Some people are gifted with spacial-relation abilities, some not.
Our standing before Yahusha is equal, and His love for each of us is undiminished by our inability to grasp how His creation operates.
His love overwhelms the trivial wisdom we may think we possess. He shares His thoughts with us in order for us to conquer with love, not knowledge.
We fail because we allow the enemy to divide us, not because we perceive something to be flat or spherical.
WE ARE NOT TO ARGUE OVER FOOLISH QUESTIONS
These two texts explain why:
2Timothy 2:23 & Titus 3:9-11
The time has arrived when specious irrelevancy is equated with vital truth.
The only conclusion that matters:
“Let us hear the conclusion of the entire matter: Fear Alahim and guard His commands, for this applies to all mankind. For Alahim shall bring every work into right-ruling, including all that is hidden, whether good or whether evil.” - Ecc 12:13-14
Should We Boast In What We Know, Or In Who We Know?
“Speak, ‘Thus declares Yahuah, ‘The corpses of men shall fall as dung on the face of the field, like cuttings after the reaper, with none to gather them.’ Thus said Yahuah, ‘Let not the wise boast in his
wisdom, let not the mighty boast in his might, nor let the rich boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am Yahuah, doing kindness, right-ruling, and righteousness in the Earth. For in these I delight,’ declares Yahuah.”

The reapers don’t care what we think about the Earth being flat, spherical, or cubical. They will be looking for the seal of Yahusha’s redemption; the indwelling of the Name of Yahuah.
People are about to be reaped by the seraphim, and yet many of us are wasting precious time arguing about being right about the microcosm or macrocosm, International Date Line, Moon phases, Heliocentricity, Blood Moons, the zodiac, and calendars.
"Lift up your eyes to the shamayim, and look on the arets beneath, for the shamayim shall vanish like smoke, and the arets wear out like a garment, and those who dwell in it die as gnats. But My deliverance is forever, and My uprightness is not broken. Listen to Me, you who know uprightness, a people in whose heart is My Turah: do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their revilings."
- YashaYahu 51:5-7
The New York Times published an article 2-12-1995 quoting Sheik Abdel-Aziz Ibn Baaz, the supreme religious authority of Saudi Arabia:
<![if !vml]> <![endif]>
“The Earth is flat. Whoever claims it is round is an atheist deserving of punishment.”
Catholics and Muslims have been known to be severe with people who don't believe things as they do. What people think should not be a reason for them to be punished or killed.
The reapers are not concerned about what anyone believes about gravity or how far away the Sun is.
If one believes the Earth is flat, or round, they can still behave in love toward others who understand slightly differently. We trust in our Creator, and His redemption. This is shared between us no matter what we think about gravity, physics, or a hollow Earth. We don’t trust in how well we understand the things He created.
There seems to be a predisposition for those who fall for new and unusual teachings to become fixated on them, to the point of being obsessed. Look at the Lunar Sabbath debate.
To fix on one subject and expend much time and effort to defend it –while Scripture spends little or no time on it - indicates something’s wrong. We need to accept others in spite of their obsessions, or their disinterest in our obsessions.
We have different understandings because we are being refined. To fail to love is to miss the goal - utterly. Torah is our teaching authority, and if we strive against it and do not learn to love, then we love death. We don't need to be disciplined by man's teaching authorities, Yahuah can manage our needed discipline without any help from anyone else. “When there are many words, transgression is not absent, but he who restrains his lips is wise.” - Prov.10:19
“Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not be proud in mind, but go along with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.” — Romans 12:16
Between 1968 - 1972 I served in the US Air Force and saw technologies that would, even today, boggle the mind.
During those years the SR-71 Blackbird was a top-secret craft that operated both in the atmosphere as well as above it. The engines converted to rockets above the atmosphere. It could cruise at Mach 5 outside the atmosphere, and was piloted by astronauts. It was the fastest nuclear delivery system in place at the time.
The "S" in SR-71 stood for "strategic" indicating it was a delivery system for nukes. The "R" in SR-71 meant it was also a "reconnaissance" system, capable of photographing ultra-high resolution pictures of the Earth's surface.
I personally witnessed this plane and the things it could do. It was not built to create fake photographs of our planet, or trick people like me into believing the Earth is a sphere.
FLAT EARTH THEORY
The primitive understanding of the immovable Earth, or the later understanding of a non-centralized spherical Earth will play no part in one’s standing before Yahusha, since we have Romans 8:37-39 to rely on. There is nothing in all creation that can separate us from His love, even our ignorance. We pursue peace and love, and knowing Yahusha is the way we achieve these. In recent years, this flat Earth CIA psyop is worming through the Internet with the purpose of measuring how gullible the average person is.
KOSMOS EX NIHILO
Prior to my study of the Scripture of Truth, I studied the make-up and behavior of the universe above us. For 18 years I ravenously studied cosmology, pursuing the truth from all kinds of scientific disciplines. Finally, I exhausted these sources, having dug as deep as humanly possible. Having reached my wit’s end dodging the drivel and contradictory statements coming out of many widely-respected scientists, I turned to historical religious beliefs.
I studied every major faith on the planet from India’s Hinduism to Rome’s Mithraism. They all grew from the same source: Nimrod. The world has remained paralyzed by religious ignorance for thousands of years. Then I read the Scripture of Truth, and found everything I’d been searching for because I had searched for the Creator, and He revealed His Name to me.
The unraveling of the Greek and Catholic ideas about a flat Earth began as the quality of optical lenses advanced.
The ancient discoveries of Euclid of Alexandria (3rd century BCE), Archimedes of Syracuse (born 3rd century BCE, and Ptolemy (2nd century CE) were rediscovered at the same time men like Copernicus, Galileo, Cassini, Newton, Bacon, and others enabled our understanding of the heavens lifted the fog of Babel’s mythological Astrology.
The King James Version (1611) contains a great deal of the primitive interpretations of the Anglican Catholic translators who understood only the Astrology handed-down to them from the ignorant gentiles.
If a flat-Earther happens to have photos of the shape they believe we live on, it would help their cause, and validate the viewpoint most of the world believed in up until Galileo, who they almost condemned to death in 1633 for his discoveries. Most flat-Earthers claim they can't go high enough to take a proper photo of their imaginary pizza-shape surrounded by ice.
They say this is due to the radiation exposure, and they believe all the photographs taken by high altitude balloons, spacecraft, orbiting satellites, and lunar-based photography are fakes. The ISS is not real to them, and they think NASA has a scheme to deceive everyone, yet they don't yet know what purpose such a deception might have.
OBEYING HIM IS PROOF THAT WE KNOW HIM
By ignoring Torah, we choose death.
If we don’t obey His Commands, we don’t know Him.
“And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands. The one who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.
But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Alahim has been perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked.”
- 1Yn. 2:3-6
OBEDIENCE PERFECTS BELIEF, BUT MEN’S TEACHINGS ARE LEAVEN, CORRUPTING THE HEARTS (WINESKINS) OF THE DECEIVED.
Those who refuse to receive a love for the Truth are sent a
strong delusion (2Thess 2:1-12).
Hebrews 11 shows us it is impossible to please Yahuah
without amunah (faithfulness).
Our amunah is perfected by obedience. Hebrews 11 gives
many examples of how those having amunah acted on their
belief in Yahuah by obeying Him. Note Revelation 12.
The first-fruits are those who obey the Commandments, and hold to the testimony of Yahusha.
There are many false teachers and deceiving spirits in the world.
If you abide in His Word, you are truly His, and you will know the Truth, and be set free from men, and the reign of the beast. (BABEL)
