IN JOHN’S VISION of the New Jerusalem descending down from Heaven to Earth, he 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 we have a glaring problem. NASA tells us the Kármán line, which is the unofficial boundary marker of cosmic infinity, begins only 62 miles above our head, which places almost the entire city of Jerusalem in a non-gravitational vacuum of outer space.
Firstly, this isn’t simply a prophetic metaphor, because John makes it clear that these are man’s measurements. A globular belief raises further issues, like the amount of flat surface needed for a cube, let alone the assumption that the earth’s ground-level is actually spinning at a thousand miles per hour, with a further projection of 67,000 miles per hour as the sun hooks us in its gravitational pull. The upper portions of New Jerusalem would be spinning at several thousand miles per hour!
And I know what some of you are already thinking. Wait a second, Noel, there’s going to be new heavens and a new earth! Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. I’ll get to that in a second.
Simply stated, the New Jerusalem is going to be huge! Standing directly underneath the city’s outer wall, it will likely be impossible to see the very top floor. Even at 5,000 miles away, the city will appear 130 times larger than our current moon. To appear as the actual size of the moon, as we can see it now, someone 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. Basically, there will be nowhere on the Biblical Flat Earth where the New Jerusalem cannot be seen. That makes for easy directions, and impossible to get lost. Isn’t that exciting?
Revelation 21 (KJV)
The New Heaven and Earth
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.
The New Jerusalem
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.
THE NEW EARTH WILL BE A RESTORATION OF WHAT WAS AND CURRENTLY IS, NOT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CREATION
Scriptural data seems to support this idea. And here’s why.
In Koine Greek, there were two words that are translated as “new” in the English Bible; neos and kainos. One Greek resource states:
As distinct from néos, “new in time,” kainós means “new in nature” (with an implication of “better”). Both words suggest “unfamiliar,” “unexpected,” “wonderful,” and the distinction fades with time.
So, “kainos” should not be taken as something totally new. When I was “born again” as a child of God, I did not receive a new body, nor did Christ discard His old body when He was resurrected into his glorified body, as it would not have been a true resurrection had that been the case. This can be read in such passages as the following:
“If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Here the Apostle Paul uses kainos in the expression “new creation.” Paul did not intend to convey the idea that this is a completely different individual. There is continuity between the old person and the new person to such an extent that it remains the same person, but renovated. The person is the same, but the quality of that person has been transformed.
In the same way, the biblical concept of the New Earth is one of renovation and restoration. This conclusion is supported by Peter’s words in his public speech in the temple at Jerusalem.
“Repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that he may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of the restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. This earth, however, will be cleansed by fire for the purpose of restoration as expressed in the following passage: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and everything that is done on it will be disclosed. Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, what sort of persons ought you to be in leading lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire?” (2 Peter 3:10-12)
JESUS WILL BE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, AND IS BEST EXPLAINED ON A FLAT EARTH
As it was in the beginning, when God created the world without the sun, so shall it be in the end.
“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 Book of Revelation makes so much more sense to me when read as a Flat Earth textbook. Adhering to the geocentric Biblical Flat Earth model myself now, I can’t help but raise questions I had for decades felt too uncomfortable asking, like: If the sun is no more, as Revelation promises, then what will the earth spin around? Will it hurdle endlessly through an infinite vacuum or stop spinning altogether, and what of gravity? If the stars are truly gigantic balls of burning gas even larger than our own sun and quadrillion of miles away, how can they possibly fall to earth, as John’s revelation also promises?
Why does the church desperately and so endlessly cling to the adherence of a worldly reputation in hopes that the worlds godless patrons somehow fail to perceive us as CRAZY? That’s what the Flat Earth argument has exposed for me, our idolatrous and adulterous love affair with this Beast System. Yes, to Establishment science, Flat Earth is crazy. Yet are not the rapture of the church and the resurrection of the dead crazy in the eyes of the Scientific Establishment? Is not the new city of Jerusalem coming down out of heaven also an insult to their very intellect? Isn’t the entire Bible basically one big mush pot of crazy? Why must we bend over backwards for the approval of the University, run by the Masonic Elite? You say Jesus is the light of the world, literally?
Yes indeed. Just as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end.
When pressed to the Bible’s many promises that simply contradict Evolutions every claim, like the instantaneous creation of new heavens and a new earth, or a New Jerusalem literally and once-more instantaneously descending down from heaven, so many cornered Darwinian “Christians” confess that evolution will no longer be in effect when Revelation 20 rolls around. Basically, God decides to drop his preferred method of creation, as Establishment science demands. Mm-hmm, okay.
So why do Ball-believing Copernicans ironically do the very same thing?
And another thing, if Jesus is to be the light of the world, how will that even work if someone is on the opposite end of the globe? Will it always be night on continents where Jesus is not? Ah! It’s because no matter where we are on the flat stationary earth, unmovable on its foundations, as the Bible prescribes, we’ll be able to gaze at the New Jerusalem and see the glorious light of God!
In this way it will always be daylight, because there is no angle of curvature that will hide us from it. Indeed, everyone on Earth will be able to see the glorious illumination of the holy city, and the light of its ruling King.
If you adhere to the heliocentric model and yet hold to the Bible as your standard of belief, despite the fact that the Bible disagrees with you, surely you must concede that at some point in human history heliocentrism, like the delusional theory of evolution, will not be God’s diagnosed method of creation.
I guess this makes everyone a future geocentrist.
