The Witch of Endor

Now Samuel had died, and all Israel had lamented for him and buried him in Ramah, in his own city. And Saul had put the mediums and the spiritists out of the land.

Then the woman said, “Whom shall I bring up for you?” And he said, “Bring up Samuel for me.”

And the king said to her, “Do not be afraid. What did you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I saw a spirit ascending out of the earth.”

And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?

(1 Samuel 28:3, 11, 13, 15) KJV

You may be skeptical of the idea that there’s an underworld realm of the dead deep in the interior of the Earth, or that the souls of the Old Testament saints had to wait there for the messiah. That’s understandable.

Loyal to the Word of God

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

(2 Timothy 2:15) KJV

Speaking of George Muller (1805-1898)

He intended no assault upon brethren who hold other views, when he thus plainly stated in his journal the honest and unavoidable convictions to which he came; but he was too loyal to both the word of God and to his own conscience to withhold his views when so carefully and prayerfully arrived at through the searching of the scriptures.

– Arthur T. Pierson, George Muller of Bristol

I may be guilty of assaulting brethren who hold other views, but I certainly understand what it means to be loyal to the word of God and to my conscience. Here’s a quote from the book I’m currently reading, one which I’ve read before but return to.

Inquired and Searched Diligently

Danby House

1 Peter # 2

Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

(1 Peter 1:10-12) KJV

3 Examples of Prophets inquiring and searching diligently.

  1. David and the Ark
  2. Josiah and Revival
  3. Daniel and the Return from Exile

How Should you Study Matty’s Paradigm?

The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.

(Proverbs 12:24) KJV

This is a big deal. It’s a game changer. It’s a means by which you can come to know God in a way that you probably didn’t think was possible. It’s going to take some work though.

This isn’t a pill you can swallow and wake up with the full knowledge of how the Bible is in perfect harmony with science.

Mainstream Science is False

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

(2 Timothy 2:15) KJV

Popular science (SciPop) is false, but there’s no alternative to it that accurately accounts for our observations of the universe and the testimony of Scripture. People have tried to do this, but they tried from within the SciPop paradigm, which is why they failed.

Matty’s Paradigm is New

Cutaway of planet Earth showing the relative depth of Noah's flood

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

(Ecclesiastes 1:9-10) KJV

You’ve probably heard that there’s no new thing under the sun, right? So how on Earth can Matty pop up and claim to have resolved the apparent differences between science and the Bible?

Milestones

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

(Matthew 17:19-21) KJV

Earth is a Sphere

It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;

(Isaiah 40:22) ESV

The Bible does NOT say that the Earth is flat. Not anywhere. The flat Earth insanity is what happens when you induce a rationalization of scripture to fit the premise of a flat Earth.
