And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
( Luke 16:23 )
The New Testament (Greek) references to hell and the interior of the earth are in harmony with the spherical hollow earth model (SHEM) which we have constructed from the Old Testament (Hebrew).
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
( Psalms 82:2-5 )
The scientific community wants you to believe that the earth orbits the sun and the sun is traveling through space. The Psalmist wants you to know that the people who want you to believe this are wicked oppressors.
For a fire is kindled in mine
anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth
with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
( Deuteronomy 32:22 )
The pit, the pit of corruption, and the lowest hell are the same thing: the molten core of the earth from which there is no return. The grave, on the other hand, in the mantle, you can be brought up from.
Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
( Isaiah 38:17-18 )
Our spherical hollow earth model (SHEM) is compatible with everything the Bible says pertaining to how its form fits its function. The function of the pit is to hold the souls of the lost until the final judgement.
In the six hundredth year of
Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the
same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the
windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty
days and forty nights.
( Genesis 7:11-12 )
Hell is the default outcome for all those who reject the freely available alternative – life in Jesus Christ – it is not an example of God being mean.
Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
( Deuteronomy 5:8 )
The deep, of Genesis 1:2 became the great deep, the deep and the depths of the created world. They are all translated from the same Hebrew word – tehom. The deep became creation. The word became flesh.
When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
( Proverbs 8:24 )
“When there were no depths,” refers to the time before the 3rd day of creation. On the 3rd day “the deep,” became “the great deep.” It is not saying that there was a time before creation when there was no water.
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.
( 1 Samuel 2:8 )
If there are remnants of the pillars of the earth today, then we have an important clue that allows us to calculate the original radius of the earth as it was on the 3rd day of creation: approximately 7,653 km
They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
( Job 17:16 )
The pillars of the earth are incorporated into a 3D model of a Biblical spherical earth in which they are part of earth’s internal structure. They do not require us to believe that the earth is flat.
Whose graves are set in the sides
of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them
slain, fallen by the sword, which caused terror in the land of the
( Ezekiel 32:23 )
If you are on a downward course and leave the lower mantle, once you enter the great gulf there is nothing to stop your fall into the core. This means that the pit refers to everything below the mantle.
