“THOU SHALT NOT MAKE THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE”—INCLUDING A GLOBULAR ONE | Reflections in Flat Earth from Prince Edward Island

“BUT….BUT….BUT…..HAVEN’T YOU SEEN PICTURES OF EARTH FROM SPACE?” So follows the typical and often immediate rebuttal from Christians when the pages of Holy Writ comes into the discussion, as if I need to be forcibly pried from the written words of the Holy Ghost in order to correct an academic illiteracy, and one certainty is made transparently clear—a graven image has been suspended so high on a pedestal as to re-imagine, chasten, and ultimately overthrow the Testimony of God. Here-in the doctrine of Flat Earth reveals yet another delusional offense against our Creator, and a damnable one for many souls. Satan has convinced the citizens of his kingdom that there is one permissible image, be it man-made, which God wishes us to uphold in our devotion to Him even as it conflicts and supersedes the Scripture in every place where the two of them meet.

This idol in question is called Blue Marble. And it’s the most reproduced image in the history of the world.

“Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:” Deuteronomy 5:8 (KJV)

What else is a graven or molten image but man’s attempt to construe and confine the power of God, specifically to limit or alter His power and reduce Him to a parcel package that we can control? Both result from greed and covetousness, and we must not overlook the rarely spoken but painfully obvious truth; there is a fear among the worshiper of idols that God does not have his best interests at heart. As with any kind of worship, the object of adoration inevitably controls us.

The Blue Marble—every Blue Marble in a series of several released by NASA over the last half-century are proven frauds. Specifically they are imaginative artistic renditions of “data.” We do not have one “actual photo” of this so-called planet they say we live on with a negative to show for it, and yet what does the church-going Christian do with this news?  When confronted with the truth of God’s revelation regarding His created order he immediately clings to the image of the Blue Marble and hugs it against his bosom, crying, “LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!” with two fingers firmly implanted in his ears so as not to give audience to any more of this superstitious nonsense. God must surely make an exception for them this one time. And besides, let’s be honest, the true goodness of God could not possibly compete with the nourishment which that person receives from the man-made image, specifically what that idol contains, or rather everything which is implied of his lifestyle within it.

Moses was not an author of frivolous or meaningless words when he wrote, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”

The New Testament is as much against idolatry as the Old. Our only permissible and proper act, where idolatry is concerned, is eating with the unbeliever during their various celebrations in hopes that we might direct the conversation towards the Lord. But there is a stark warning present at all times. Under no circumstances are we as Christians given license to join ritualistic religious devotions in which we honor and worship false heathen gods, which may be the prime reason for such celebrations. God is a jealous God—rooted in divine justice and love. He demands our full heart, not slices of it.

Anything that is desired or treasured more than God and what He reveals of Himself in revelations future, present, and past is an obvious idol. Concerning the subject at hand, Paul makes this clear. Where there is willful covetousness, the wrath of God cometh on that child of disobedience. If we find God to be so boring or so negligible that we must put other things in His place that really satisfy us more than He does, as this entire Copernican apostasy brings to light, then we not only offend the Master, but we ultimately destroy ourselves.

If the Blue Marble is standing in the way of accepting God’s Testimony concerning Himself in His Creation—we call this the doctrine of Flat Earth—then a graven image is presently being upheld.

And just look at the mess it got us in.

2023 Conference Announcement

IT’S happening. Zen Garcia was kind enough to ask me to speak at the upcoming 2023 Sacred Word Revealed conference in Atlanta, Georgia. May 26-28. And I’m going. Somewhere on that wall of fine presenters is my mug, but I’m not telling you which one. I like to play hard to get, and so, you will have to try your best and find me. My arrival is predicated upon me speaking exclusively on the Millennial Kingdom + Mud Flood subject, which has been plastered all over TUC over the last few years. I hope to see my readers there! Once Zen and company release the official schedule I plan on scheduling a TUC meetup. So stay tuned.

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
