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).
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) KJV
The pre-tribulation rapture is pastoral fudge. Christians and the Church will be on the earth during six of the seven plagues that are part of the tribulation.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.(1 Corinthians 15:52) KJV
The Last Trump is After the First Six
…at the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:52). There will be seven trumpets. This means that the rapture will take place after six of the seven trumpets have sounded. Here’s a quick summary of what happens as the first six trumpets are sounded:
Tribulation 0.86 The First Six Trumpets
- The surface of the earth is devastated by burning hail,
- humans and livestock are affected by burning sores in the skin,
- the continents move together to form a contiguous landmass.
- The first of three extraterrestrial impacts pollutes the sea,
- everything in the oceans dies.
- A second extraterrestrial impact poisons all fresh water,
- the rivers, streams and lakes turn to blood.
- The sun emits solar flares and burns off most of its remaining fuel,
- it briefly flares 7 times brighter then weakens to a dim glow.
- A third extraterrestrial impact ruptures the crust and mantle all around the periphery of the super-continent which has formed,
- a swarm of horse-sized armor-plated locusts with scorpion tails come out of the depths of the earth,
- smoke bellows out from the crack in the earth and darkens the sky,
- the scorpions torment the people for 5 months.
- All the armies of the earth assemble for the battle of Armageddon.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:(Matthew 13:7) KJV
I went to BEZA International Church expecting a blessing. My ears tingled as I strained to hear every word: God was going to tell me what to do. This is what I heard: There is a book in you that only YOU can write!
- IF 1,000 years has passed for each day on earth since the 2nd day,
- AND the earth is about 6,000 years old.
- THEN a minimum of 2.19 billion years has passed at the radial distance of the firmament, the remote regions of the cosmos, in the same period of time.
It’s part of a theory of gravity which is at the heart of God’s plan of redemption. Here’s a brief summary of what we can do with it.
Matty’s Paradigm, Harmonization
- The broad narrative of scripture:
- separation of light from darkness,
- redemption, propitiation and salvation,
- fulfillment of prophecy.
- Empirical observation:
- earth is the center of the observable universe.
- earth is about 6,000 years old.
- a source of Hydrogen for nucleosynthesis,
- origin of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR),
- a mathematical solution for black holes and dark matter,
- the sun is less massive than the earth,
- the remote regions of the cosmos are at minimum 2.19 billion years old,
- the cosmos may be more than 13.8 billion years old,
- stars will fall to earth.
Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.(Psalms 42:7) KJV
Why were there no Cherubim or flaming swords necessary on the North, West and South of Eden? Eden was surrounded on three sides by unscalable cliffs over which four rivers flowed as waterfalls.
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.
Truth is Light, Darkness is Evil
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.( Genesis 1:2 ) KJV
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.( Matthew 27:45 ) KJV
Whether intentional or not, popular science (PopuSci) is an attempt to rationalize human existence without invoking a supernatural cause. This exposes a critical flaw: the universe has a supernatural cause.
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, ( Matthew 19:4 ) KJV
God always refers to himself as male, Alpha, the Father. Jesus Christ, the begotten, is the Son. Simple deduction gives the gender of the Holy Spirit, Omega, to be female although this is not expressly stated in scripture.
