All creationists, including myself,
believe and correctly so, that the earth is just over 6000 years old. The secular world
plus many in the church believe the earth is millions of years old. NO.
Every verse has another verse to explain or support
the verse in question. “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her
mate” (1saiah 34:16) Psalms 90:4 says, “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it
is past” This does not refer to the beginning days of creation in the first chapter of Genesis. If refers to 2 Peter
3:8 which says, “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” Both verses
explain that God is beyond time.
In the King James Bible, from creation to Christ, a chronology chart B.C. shows the date
a patriarch was born, the number of years he lived and the his age on becoming a father of the next patriarch; all added together,
plus the first week of creation, equals 4000 years to Christ. Going on to the present time makes a total of just over 6000
years. Millions of years cannot be attributed to the word “void” in Genesis 1:2 because verse 5 says, “the
evening and the morning were the first day.” A 24 hour day.
The genealogy in Luke 3:23-38 goes from Jesus to Adam, a period of 4000 years showing the total age
of the earth to be just over 6000 years. Young earth creationists believe this, but they will not believe the sun orbits the
earth daily, As 2 Samuel 23:4 says. “when the sun riseth” The earth is stationary in the center of the universe.
“The heaven for height and the earth for depth” (Proverbs 25:3). This verse alone tells us that the
earth is in the center of the universe. How do we know for sure? Psalms 71: 20 says, “from the depths of the earth.”
As the “depths” are in the center of the earth, so also is the earth in the center of the universe. The means
that the sun goes around the earth daily.
The teachings of the Scripture form a unit. An attack on one is an attack
on all. 1 Cor. 5:6 says, “…a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?” Once we have begun to deny one doctrine
we are tempted to deny the others. The
Bible is openly geocentric.
Before the 16th century everyone believed the world was geocentric. Then God’s
word was abandoned in favor of the false theory of heliocentrism. “For there must be also heresies among you”
(1 Cor. 11:19). Heresy means an opinion different from established belief.
Genesis through Deut. are the books of the law, but the first chapter of Genesis
is the law before sin entered the world. This is foundational truth.
Genesis 1:2 says, “…the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”
These waters were above the heavens “…ye
waters that be above the heavens.” (Psalms 148:4). The Lord is Spirit and he is also light, “God is light”
(John 1:5). God - “Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: (Ps 104:2). God light is moving on the first day
around the stationary earth. The Spirit of God, enclosed in light, was moving westward
over a stationary earth. Light started orbiting the earth and the sun continues moving daily.
74:16 “The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.” The sun takes the
place of the prepared light on the fourth day and continues going around the non-moving earth daily. The sun must move as
the prepared light moves.
The moving light on the first day and the moving sun on the fourth,
each produced the same 24 hour day and night period for the earth, which is stationary. To
say the sun doesn’t move and the earth is rotating daily is against 39 verses of scripture:
when the sun was going down” (Gen.15:12)
“toward the rising of the
sun” (Numbers 2:3)
“when the sun is down” (Deuteronomy 23:11)
“neither shall the sun go down upon it” (Deuteronomy 24:15)
“where the sun goeth down” (Deut. 11:30 and Deut. 24:13)
“about the going down of the sun” (1 Kings 22:36)
“The sun also riseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his
place where he arose” (Ecclesiates 1:5)
“the sun went down” (2 Samuel 2:24)
“of the morning when the sun riseth” (2 Samuel 23:4)
“about the going down of the sun” (1 Kings 22:36)
“from the rising of the sun” (Isaiah 41:25)
the rising of the sun” (Isaiah 45:6)
“his glory from the rising
of the sun” (Isaiah 59:19)
“Thy sun shall no more go down”
“her sun is going down while it was yet day”
“as soon as the sun was down” (Joshua 8:29)
“the time of the going down of the sun” (Joshua 10:27)
“toward the rising of the sun” (Joshua 12:1)
going down of the sun” (Joshua 1:4)
the sun went down” (Judges 19:14)
the sun when he goeth forth in his might” (Judges 5:31)
rising of the sun unto the going down of the same”
the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down.”
50:1). “the sun
ariseth” (Psalms 104:22)
“till the going down
of the sun” (Daniel 6:14)
“when the sun did arise”
“when the sun ariseth” (Nahum 3:17)
“and the sun shall go down” (Micah 3:6)
the rising of the sun” (Malachi 1:11)
“and when the sun was up”
“when the sun did set” (Mark 1:32)
“when the sun was up” (Mark 4:6)
the rising of the sun” (Mark 16:2)
“when the sun was setting”
“let not the sun go down upon your wrath” (Ephesians 4:26)
“for the sun is no sooner risen” (James 1:11)
What God did must agree
with what he said he did. No verse says ‘the turning of the earth’. God cannot lie. “it was impossible of
God to lie.” (Hebrews 6:18) “let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4)
The fourth day of creation repudiates any
notion of heliocentricity. Since time had previously been determined by the movement of light around the earth, hermeneutics
demands that time still be determined by the movement of light, whatever its source, around the earth.
The secular world believes that the earth
spins on its axis daily. Instead, the firmament revolves around the earth daily. The sun, moon and stars are enclosed in the
firmament and they each have their own individual orbit inside the moving firmament. Jeremiah 33:25 “Thus saith the
LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;” “Knowest
thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” (Job 38:33). Ordinances
means how the
heavens or firmament works or how it operates.
Science claims that the sun could not orbit the earth daily because the gravity of
the sun is 1000 times greater than the earth’s gravity. “Then the LORD said unto me. The prophets prophesy lies
in my name…they prophesy unto you a false vision” (Jeremiah 14:14). Scientist overlooked scripture. Habakkuk
3:4 says “…and there was the hiding of his power”. The power is revealed only by reading scripture. It
cannot be measured or discovered by science in a laboratory. Power and force are identical. “God is a God of gods…and
a revealer of secrets” (Daniel 2:47). God has not only revealed this power, this force, but has told us what it does.
It nullifies the force of gravity, so the sun really does revolve around the earth daily. The
Bible is right after all.
Scripture trumps science. Many people still believe science instead of scripture on this particular subject. What
will be the final result of this belief? “They who observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy” (Jonah 2:8).
Scientist are: “measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
(2 Cor.10:12). “Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works…they are more than can be numbered”
There is no other subject in the entire Bible where there is this much information, that is
not literally true.
19:6 says, “he (God) set a tabernacle for the sun…His going forth is from the end of heaven, and his circuit
unto the ends of it.”
The sun orbits the earth daily. These geocentric
verses are real, literal, accurate history. If the earth were spinning on its axis daily; the Lord would have a verse
reading: ‘the turning of the earth’ However, there is no such scripture. It would be the opposite of the truth.
1 Timothy 6:20 says, “oppositions of science falsely so called. The Lord knew what science would be trying to promote.
“…the Sun of righteousness arise”
(Malachi 4:2). The physical sun is not morally good or bad. This verse is telling us that if the Sun doesn’t
really rise and revolve around the earth daily, then the Son (Jesus) hasn’t risen from the grave. Sun is not
misspelled with a ‘u’. It is spelled with a capital “S” referring to both Christ.and the sun.
4 …but the earth abideth for ever
5 The sun also ariseth and the sun goeth down and haseth to the place where he arose. 6 The
wind goeth toward the south and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth
again accordingly to his circuits 7 All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; unto the place
from whence the rivers come, thither they return again”
We know the wind
and rivers actually move. The sun is also physically moving and going around the stationary earth daily. Astronomers are wrong
when they claim that because the gravity of the sun is so much greater than the earth, that the sun cannot orbit the earth.
Gravity can be measured in a laboratory, but what God’s word says must also be considered. “Great
is our Lord, and of great power” (Psalms 147:5). This is true so why would Habakkuk 3:4 say, “the hiding of his
power” We know that this power exist only from scripture. This force nullifies the force of gravity; so the sun really
does orbit the earth daily. This power is hidden from science because they haven’t thought to look at scripture. The
result; the authority of scripture is restored.
