THE TOWER WHICH NIMROD AND THE ARCHITECTS OF BABEL once wickedly endeavored to build, God has promised to accomplish, but this time on His own terms. And yet still to this day the “self-enlightened” humanist desires the complete overthrow of the LORD’s throne, either by soliciting access to heaven through his own fabricated merit or altogether imagining an eternal dwelling where God will not so much as lift a finger or sigh if it should bother his perversions. Quite contrarily, the good news of the Word is not our ascent to heaven. Rather, it is God’s descent to Earth, where the meek and the righteous humbly await Him. So shall it be according to John’s vision of the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21). The many rooms in our Fathers House, prepared by Yeshua HaMashiach Himself, are unmistakably observed descending down from Heaven to Earth. And so shall our free access to Him remain forevermore. Amen.
Accordingly, John describes the Holy City as one gigantic cube, measuring 1500 miles at its base, with an equal distance of 1500 miles to its ceiling, and right away the so-called Christian who cares only for what can be explained by his own humanist self-enlightenment and the institutes of academia—particularly as he fractures Scripture to keep with the apostasy of Copernicus and Kepler’s “New Astronomy” rather than relying wholly on the literal intent of Holy Writ—has a problem. He will be faced with a terrible dilemma while simply attempting to explain this away as a carefree “prophetic metaphor,” because John makes it absolutely clear that the rod is being stretched with the measurements of man.
NASA tells us the Kármán line, which is the unofficial boundary marker of “cosmic infinity,” begins only 62 miles above our head, some 90 kilometers, which places almost the entire city of New Jerusalem in a non-gravitational vacuum of outer space. It is here where the temperature abruptly increases, rising at stunning rates for another 62 miles, 124 miles in total height, whereby it begins to level off—speculatively; although other sources claim it continually rises. While temperatures may vary, the thermosphere can reach as high as 2500 degrees Celsius, or 4532 degrees Fahrenheit!
Let us compare. The oven in your kitchen may reach somewhere around 464°F. A ceramic laboratory oven for jewelers and dentists, which is intended for the melting of gold, can reach just over 2000°F. Temperatures in a blast furnace for melting iron can climb as high as 4000°F. And yet Apollo astronauts were able to slingshot themselves in a tin can around Earth’s gravitational pull and catapult through a radiation belt reaching 4532°F and land safely on the moon fifty years ago. NASA has openly admitted that they no longer have the technology to pass the radioactive Van Allen belt. And yet the International Space Station, we are expected to believe, along with a cosmic junkyard of satellites, makes its happy home in the thermosphere.
A globular belief raises further issues. For the Copernican, he must take into consideration the sun, whose employment is no longer required. He is furthermore obliged to acknowledge prophetically what is to come—that being a complete abandonment of Newton’s gravity. There are of course other complications, such as the amount of flat surface needed for a foundation of Biblical proportions. If, in his gluttonous embrace of cognitive dissonance—it is a working of his own design—the reality behind such an undertaking does not bend or break him, he shall need to explain how, when he assumes that Earth’s ground level is unmeasurably spinning at a thousand miles per hour, with a further revolution of 67,000 miles per hour around the sun as it hooks us into the snares of its gravitational pull, the penthouse inhabitants of New Jerusalem could withstand the thrill of being spun through the vacuum of the thermosphere at an additional several thousand miles per hour!
New Jerusalem is going to be a behemoth Metropolis. Standing directly underneath the city’s outer wall, it will likely be impossible to see the very top floor. Even viewing it from 5,000 miles away, the city will appear 130 times larger than our current moon. To appear as the actual size of the moon, this according to NASA’s estimates, a citizen of God’s coming kingdom would have to stand 160,427 miles away! Of course we simply know this to be impossible, since we currently live on a flat plane, and always will. Space does not exist. I hope the reader will understand, should he shed the skin of his Satanic indoctrination; there will be nowhere on Earth where the New Jerusalem cannot be seen. It is most probable that the city will reach such heights that it towers even above our glass ceiling—the firmament. Let the spiritual implications of this begin to sink in.
I shall no doubt need to find pause here. In my mind, I can already hear the angry rebuttals. The Copernican will obstinately stomp his feet, grind his teeth, and dutifully proclaim: “This will be a new Heaven and a new Earth! The rule of Newton and the Copernicans does not apply here as it always has before us and even now exists!”
With yet another delirious stomp of the foot and feverish sweat of the brow, the Darwinist also insists on barricades. If he were being honest, he would know the righteous will not senselessly wait around for billions of years while God evolves the new Heaven and Earth into being, for by the Spirits own Testimony concerning Himself, creation is instantaneous. The Word speaks, and it is so. And yet he will dutifully proclaim: “This will be a new Heaven and a new Earth! The rule of Darwin does not apply here as it always has before us and even now exists!”
They have neglected their studies. Mainly, that the new Earth will be a restoration of what was and currently is, not a completely different creation. The same rules still apply. In Koine Greek, two separate words are translated as new in our English Bible; neos and kainos. Neos implies “new in time,” whereas here, according to John’s vision, kainos directs our attention to an Earth which is “new in nature.”
The Apostle Paul, when employing kainos to describe a new creation, would have us believe, and rightly so—there is continuity between the old person and the new. We are not two separate individuals, nor are we the dreaded clones of godless Scientism. Rather, we are renovated. God is not fond of discarding that which He has made. He wishes nothing more than to save, not obliterate. This is most evident when Paul wrote:
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new [kainos] creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).”
Similarly, the Apostle Peter would have us believe, and rightly so—that the whole of the Bible, where the breadth of the created order is concerned, directs our faith and hope to one of renovation; same house foundation but new bathroom and kitchen. When speaking before the temple in Jerusalem, Peter advised:
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began (Acts 3:19-21).”
If I take any further pause, it will be as an end of this discussion. I wish to let the spiritual truths sink in. We will need no further use for the sun because Yeshua HaMashiach will be the light of this world, just as it was in the beginning—that being the first four days of creation (Genesis 1). John makes this fact abundantly clear when he writes:
“And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof (Revelation 21:23).”
The so-called Christian who wishes to remain a delusional Copernican during his eternal residency on the renovated Earth can only hope that he is not assigned property on the other side of his “globe,” which his costly education paid for and which will assuredly always remain in the dark—if his illusion is to remain functional. But I myself am not worried, particularly if my assignment sees me traveling to the furthest ends of the Earth. For the world, you see, is stationary, unmovable on its foundations, as the Bible rightly prescribes, and undeniably flat. Wherever my adventures guide me, even to the outer Antarctic rim of the Earth, I can never be lost. No curvature shall blind my path. The New Jerusalem will always be visible, just as the glorious light of our reigning King, who has relieved the sun of its duty, will forever illuminate the whole of Creation from it.

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
