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.

( Ezekiel 32:21 )

If you are skeptical that there really is an underworld realm of the dead you should consider two things:

  1. the deepest hole ever drilled is 12 km deep,
  2. the Lehman Discontinuity is at 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 )

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 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.
For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.
The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.
When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

( Jonah 2:1-7 )

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 )

  • IF God will cast off the seed of Israel if the foundations of the earth may be searched out,
  • AND we know that God does not cast off the seed of Israel,
  • THEN the foundations of the earth may not be searched out.

Happy Π Day!

Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

( 2 Chronicles 4:2 )

Evil people want you to believe that the Bible gets the value of Π wrong so that you will reject it and forfeit the gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. However the Bible gets the value of Π exactly right.

The Ground – הָ֣אֲדָמָ֔ה

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

( Genesis 3:23 )

The Hebrews had a well developed idea of life after death. For them physical death, the grave, was a portal into a complex underworld realm. The grave is merely 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 )

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

Two Trees

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

( Genesis 2:17 )

Evolution on the scale required in the popular science paradigm requires death. There was no death before sin, therefore the evolutionary basis of the Phylogenetic Tree of Life is impossible.

Ethiopia

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

( Matthew 13:7 )

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!
