The Whole Earth

Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

(Daniel 2:35) ESV

When we consider the similarities between the third day and the Millennial Kingdom we should realize that, if flat Earth is Biblical, then maps of the supposed flat Earth should have Jerusalem at the center. They don’t.

One of the things which becomes apparent during the process of using systematic deduction to harmonize science with the Bible is that the creation has an absolute frame of reference. It turns out that the Earth is at the center of the observable universe and, as strange as this my sound to the modern ear, this is an empirical observation.

Daniel describes a vision of a mountain that fills the whole Earth, but what if it’s a vision of a real thing, not just a metaphor for something? Can we use this to understand the geography of both the original Earth and the Millennial Kingdom? Why wouldn’t we? It is, after all, the Word of God. The absolute frame of reference is even more specific than a spherical Earth being at the center of a spherical universe, Jerusalem is at the center of the habitable portion of the world.

  • IF water up-welled from the deep at Eden and watered the whole land,
    • AND during the millennial kingdom the land will be a mountain which fills the whole earth,
    • AND the temple in Jerusalem is the summit where water up-wells to feed a river which becomes too wide to swim across which heals the earth and the oceans,
  • THEN Jerusalem occupies the same physical location that Eden did.

Among other things this means that the the notion that the Bible describes a flat Earth is absurd.

The flat earth notion has a critical flaw: it’s not Biblical.

The idea of a mountain that fills the whole earth is part of the vision seen by Nebuchadnezzar and interpreted by Daniel and it pertains to the establishment of the Millennial Kingdom. Ezekiel gives us a description hydrological cycle which is remarkably similar to the one which was established on the third day.
