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

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).

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 Midst of Hell

The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.

If you’re skeptical that there’s really an underworld realm of the dead you should consider two things:

1. the deepest hole ever drilled is 12 km deep,
2. the Lehmann Discontinuity is approximately 220 km deep.

The Lower Parts of the Earth

(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

(Ephesians 4:9-10) KJV

The lower/nether parts of the earth is the lower mantle which we have identified as the foundations of the world/mountains/hills and the belly of hell. The pit is the molten core of the earth.

The Foundations of the World

Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

    • conception
      • before God said let there be light,
      • the act of conception which begat God the Son.
  2. the foundation(s) of the earth (Hebrew)
    • gravitational singularity
      • the creative act of the 2nd day,
      • the inception of the core accretion model.
  3. the foundations of the world (Hebrew, plural)

      • synonyms:
        1. bottoms of the mountains
        2. foundations of the hills
        3. foundations of the mountains

We illustrate a clear difference between the Hebrew erets (earth), and tebel (world). The foundations of the world (tebel) refers to the crust and mantle which was exposed as the ocean floor.

The Belly of Hell

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

(Jonah 2:1-2) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

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 gives us direct observation of the pillars of the earth. Direct observation is also known as empirical. The pillars of the earth aren’t allegorical, metaphorical or theoretical, they’re empirical.

Searched out Beneath

Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

(Jeremiah 31:37) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

The interior of the earth is not seen. The hope of our generation is that hell is a myth. That would mean that there’s no judgement for sin and we can live immoral lives without fearing any consequences.

Unfortunately the very same data that SciPop uses as evidence that there’s no hell may be used as evidence for hell. That’s how evidence works: it’s evidence of whatever you choose to believe about it. This is known as Matty’s Razor.

We all have exactly the same evidence.
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.

– Matty’s Razor

Jeremiah’s Logic

  • IF God will cast off the seed of Israel,
    1. If heaven above can be measured,
    2. the foundations of the earth can be searched out beneath,
  • BUT God doesn’t cast off the seed of Israel,
  • THEN:
    1. heaven above can’t be measured,
    2. the foundations of the earth can’t be searched out beneath,
