And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;(Luke 16:22) KJV
Jonah drowned and died. According to his testimony his soul went to hell, his body was swallowed by a fish. In hell he cried out to the Lord and he was resurrected in the fish’s belly. Chapter 2 of Jonah includes a first-hand eyewitness account of the internal structure of the earth. It gives us the clues we need to assemble the pieces of our spherical hollow earth model (SHEM).
Jonah describes a place in the lower mantle, overlooking the molten core of the Earth and the pillars of the Earth, which we’re euphemistically calling Abraham’s Bosom. In Luke 16:19-31 Jesus gave us the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Lazarus is said to have been in Abraham’s bosom. That simply means that Abraham was giving Lazarus a hug.
Most theologians will tell you that Lazarus and Abraham are in heaven, the great gulf refers the impassable void between heaven and Earth, and hell is spiritual separation from God. Typical fluff. However, Lazarus and Abraham can’t be in heaven because this takes place before the crucifixion. The sacrifice hasn’t been made which pays the propitiation for our redemption – yet. Lazarus and Abraham are with the Old Testament saints in sheol, the belly of hell, waiting for the coming of the messiah.
Theologians have such a hard time with this passage that they’ve invented a place called Abraham’s Bosom or the Bosom of Abraham which is allegorical, the problem is that they don’t know what it’s an allegory for. It doesn’t matter, we’ve deduced the existence of a physical location in the lower mantle, and we can use it to refer to that.
Jesus went here after the crucifixion and preached to the spirits in prison. He gathered up the souls of the saints and took them to heaven.
There is precedent to use the phrase Abraham’s bosom to refer to a physical location. It’s part of the meaning of the word translated as bosom.
Bosom: κόλπον – kolpos
- the bosom
- sing. and plur: bosom;
- (sinus) the overhanging fold of the garment used as a pocket,
- properly, the upper part of the chest where a garment naturally folded to form a “pocket” – called the “bosom,”
- the position synonymous with intimacy (union),
- a bay, gulf
- a bay of the sea, gulf, creek.
- sing. and plur: bosom;
It can refer to a bay or gulf in a coastline, which is similar to the idea presented by a chamber in the lower mantle which overlooks the great gulf and hell below. The way that we deduce the location of a place which could be called Abraham’s Bosom is laid out in the post for March 16th.
