Adders, Asps, Dragons, Serpents and Vipers

May 9

Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

(Deuteronomy 32:33)KJV

There are many ways to study the Bible, there’s a time and a place for all of them. One of them is to study sentence structure.

Hell: αδη – Hadés

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

(Luke 16:23) KJV

We’ve made an extensive study of the ways in which the interior of the Earth is described in Old Testament Hebrew, but how is it described in New Testament Greek? The doctrine isn’t as well developed but it overlaps harmoniously.

Flat Earth isn’t Biblical

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

(Colossians 2:8) KJV

The Bible describes a spherical earth at the center of a spherical cosmos. The center of earth is hell. Hell is expanding, it’s the cause of global warming. Flat earth is a load of dingo’s kidneys.

The Sides of the Pit

Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword: 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 living.

(Ezekiel 32:22-23) KJV

If you’re on a downward course and leave the lower mantle, once you enter the great gulf, there’s nothing to stop your fall into the core. This means that the pit refers to everything below the mantle.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 28

  • IF the grave refers to the region of the earth’s mantle,
    • AND the pit refers to the molten core,
  • THEN you may be brought up from the grave, but not the pit.

The Ground: הָ֣אֲדָמָ֔ה – adamah

Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

– The levels of hell correspond to the four zones of the interior of the Earth.

The Hebrews had a well developed idea of life after death. For them death, the grave, was a portal into a complex underworld realm. The grave is just the beginning of what happens next.

The Ends of the Earth

God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

(Job 28:23-25) KJV

If you want to believe that earth is flat no one’s going to stop you. However nothing in the Bible, either in the meaning of words or in the context of passages, requires you to believe that earth is flat and has an edge.

Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

(Proverbs 17:24) KJV

The proverb above has a familiar ring to it. How about this for comparison?

All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was… what he was doing.

– Master Yoda

This isn’t talking about the edge of a flat earth, it’s talking about someone who lets his or her mind wander off into… the Star Trek universe of SciPop.

There Went up a Mist

And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

(Genesis 2:5-6) KJV

On the 3rd day there was no rain upon the earth and there was not a man to till the ground. On the 6th day there was a man in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it, logically there was also rain.

Formed: יֹצֵ֨ר – Yatsar

To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.

(Psalms 136:6) KJV

On the 3rd day the dry land was stretched out above the waters of the deep in a manner which may be visualized as a potter making a hollow vessel out of a solid lump of clay.

Highest Part: וְ֝רֹ֗אשׁ – Rosh

While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

(Proverbs 8:26) KJV

We have closed the loop on the idea that the topography of the dry land on the 3rd day was a mountain that filled the whole earth. The summit: Eden. We are also beginning to deduce earth’s original hydrological cycle.

The Whole Land

And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

(Genesis 2:10-14) KJV

The Logic of Eden

  • IF a river from Eden watered the whole surface of the earth,
    • AND water flows downhill,
  • THEN Eden was the highest point on the surface of the earth.
