In about 1980 I attended a creation meeting
in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 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 time means nothing to God.
In the King James Bible 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
equals 4000 years. Then add one week and you have the beginning of creation, just over 6000 years ago. 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.
This paper goes deeply into several verses of scripture that all Bible commentaries
and churches have went through too fast to get the full meaning. Deuteronomy 8:3 says, "man doth not live by bread only,
but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live." At the present time, in spite of all the
Bible commentaries and churches, we still do not have the full meaning and understand correctly 5 or 6 verses of scripture
in the King James Bible.
The teachings of the Scripture form a unit. An attack on one is an attack on all. Once we
have begun to deny one doctrine we are tempted to deny the others.
Genesis 1:1-3 took place in one second. There are
not millions of years or a gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:3. The word "void" (vs. 2) means that the earth was was
just matter, in elemental existence, it had no form. Verse 3 says, "And God said, Let there be light" The earth
now received its atomic structure, which gave it form.
Again, every verse has a mate. This is why the Bible appears
to say everything twice such as: "Bless the Lord" (Psalms 103:1) and "Bless the Lord" (Psalms 103:2).
The mate for Genesis 1:2 is: "I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and
they had no light." (Jeremiah 4:23) Sometimes the mate is close and sometimes the mate is in another book.

evening and the morning were the first day.” A 24 hour day. “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the
waters.” “Who coverest thyself with light” (Psalms 104:2) This says that light covering the Spirit was moving
westward over a stationary earth. Light started orbiting the earth this way and the sun continues moving in the same direction.
of the stars”
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. The firmament also oscillates up and down yearly causing summer and winter.
“From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same” (Psalms 113:3)
“The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth
from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof” (Ps. 50:1)
“And when the sun was going down” (Gen.15:12)
“where the sun goeth down” (Deut. 11:30 and Deut.24:13)
“and the sun went down” (Judges 19:14)
“the sun went down” (2 Samuel 2:24)
“of the morning, when the sun riseth” (2 Samuel
“about the going down of
the sun” (1 Kings 22:36)
sun also riseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.” (Ecclesiates 1:5)
“when the sun ariseth” (Nahum 3:17)
“from the rising of the sun” (Malachi 1:11)
“his glory from the rising of the sun” (Isaiah 59:19)
“and the sun shall go down” (Micah 3:6)
There is no other subject in the
entire Bible where there is this much information, that is not literally true. “Which things are an allegory;
for these are the two covenants” (Galatians 4:24) Allegory means figurative. The conflict between Abraham’s two
wives was a spiritual allegory, depicting the conflict between law and grace, but it is still real history. “the figures of the true” (Hebrews
9:24). Even if
these verses are labeled ‘figurative’
they are still true. 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 and never will be. It would be the opposite
of the truth. 1 Timothy 6:20 says, “oppositions of science falsely so called.”
DELIGHT - Psalms 119:
47 “delight myself in thy commandments.”
70 “but I delight in thy law.”
77 “for thy law is my delight.”
Romans 7:22 “For I delight in the law of God”
Psalms 119:143 “thy commandments are my delights”
Psalms 119:70 says, “…but I delight in thy law.” How
can we delight in: “From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same” (Psalms 113:3); when we accept
a false theory that the earth rotates on its axis daily? Instead, we cringe at the law. We have “no delight in it.”
(Jeremiah 6:10): a false law.
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. Scripture is openly geocentric.
2 Corinthians 4:2 says, “…nor handling the
word of God deceitfully”; to manipulate. Calling “when the sun ariseth” (Nahum 3:17), phenomenological,
is to manipulate. If the earth really was revolving daily, the Lord could easily have inspired the scriptures to say: ‘The
earth is turned daily’ or ‘the turning of the earth’.
early in the morning” (Proverbs 27:14) to “rising of the sun” (Malachi 1:11). There is movement in
Proverbs, but not in Malachi. No wonder the world ignores the church; same word, but different actions.
The problem: Light travels at
186,000 miles per second. This speed times the number of seconds in a year is one light year. If the distance to the stars
is millions of light years, the earth must be millions of years old to allow time for light to reach the earth. Creationist
rectify the problem by saying that light traveled the distance from the stars to the earth millions of times faster than the
speed of light and then it slowed down to the present speed. Or perhaps, time ran extremely slow in outer space which would
allow time for light to travel from the stars to the earth at the present speed. Finally, they proposed that God created starlight
intransit between heaven and earth. However, this charges God with deception and that is not the character of God. Creationists
are not happy with any of these answers!
The answer: The universe is relatively small compared to conventional thinking.
This statement does not diminish in the least the power of God, but instead magnifies His Word. The stars are not millions
of light years in outer space. Bible scholars have inadvertently overlooked a few verses that tell us about the size of the
universe. This is easy to do considering that there are over 31,000 verses in the Bible.
“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.
Is it possible to know this distance to the stars? We
need to know the distance to the stars to fully, completely defend God’s word. Philippians 4:19 says, “my God
shall supply all your need” But scripture also says, “Thus saith the LORD; If heaven
above can be measured…I will also cast off all the seed of Israel
for all that they have done” (Jeremiah 31:37). God will never do this, so the heavens cannot be measured. But ‘can
be measured’, is an anomaly meaning an accurate measurement. Ezekiel 40:3 says, “…
with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed.” Distances can be measured either by “flax” or by
“a measuring reed.” Flax will stretch for an approximate measurement of long distances whereas the reed was stiff
for accurate measurement of short distances on the earth. This means the heavens can be measured aapproximately.
The actual distance is known only by the Lord.
All commentaries have skipped over: “His (the sun)
going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat
thereof.” (Psalms 19:6) The surface temperature of the sun is 5800 degrees. By the time the sun’s heat reaches
the earth, it is down to only 100 degrees. The sun is 93 million miles from the earth. Going on past the earth away from the
sun perhaps another 100,000 to 800,000 miles, the heat of the sun would be zero.
This means that the sun’s heat extending outward toward the end of
the universe would only reach about 94 million miles making a total of 187 million miles from
the earth. Job 38:24 says “By what way is the light parted”
(diffused). When light encounters “the stones of darkness (Job 28:3) it breaks up into different directions and ceases
to exist. The stones act as a boundary. Job 17:12 says, "the light is short
because of darkness." This limits the size of the universe. “He
setteth an end to
darkness” (Job 28:3). The end of darkness is at
the same place as the stones.
Bible commentaries have “…the Sun of righteousness arise” (Malachi 4:2). The physical sun is not righteous.
It is not morally good or bad. And the word “arise” is ignored! So what is this saying? “…one jot
or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:18) Every “jot” means
every single letter. All churches have failed to apply this verse to Malachi. They believe the letter “u” in Sun
really means the letter “o” for Son, referring to Jesus. However, it is written exactly the way the Lord wants
it written. God is pointing out to 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 and we are still in our sins and lost for eternity. This is extremely serious.
Science claims that the sun could not orbit the earth
daily because the earth has very little gravity compared to the huge amount of gravity that the sun has. Scientist are: “measuring
themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (2 Cor.10:12). Daniel 11:38 says,
“the God of forces” This force nullifies the force of gravity. “Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful
works…they are more than can be numbered” (Psalms 40:5). “Which doeth…marvelous things without number.”
This force has overcome the force of gravity. Habakkuk 3:4 says, “…and there was the hiding of his power.”
The only way we can know of this power is through scripture. Science cannot detect it with any instrument. 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).
“Trust ye not in lying words” (Jeremiah 7:4). God has taught
us the truth that the sun goes around a stationary earth. 2 Corinthians 1:9 says, “that we should not trust in ourselves,
but in God” You cannot trust yourself or the world. Psalms 146:3 says, “Put not your trust in princes” (people
that will not consider scripture). Psalms 62:9 says, “…men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance,
they are altogether lighter than vanity.” Scientist have spent too much time looking through a telescope and not enough
time looking at scriptures.
Hebrews 6:17, 18 says, ”God…to shew…the
immutablilty (not subject to change) of his counsel…it was impossible for God to lie.” God cannot lie and neither
can His word, scripture, which He has inspired. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 says, “And for this
cause God shall send them strong delusion (from science)
that they should believe a lie:” Why would God want to cause people to believe a lie? It is because they refuse to believe
His word in scripture: “And when the sun was going down” (Gen.15:12); the sun is orbiting the earth daily. The
only thing left is the earth spinning on its axis daily.
Jeremiah 44:28 says, “shall know whose words will
stand, Mine or theirs” God or scientist! At the present time, science overrules the word of God.
Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where
the word of a king is, there is power” this refers to an
earthly king, King James of England. The King James Bible is connected with
It was translated under the auspices of an earthly king, which gives it more power than other versions. If the verse said
“the king” it would refer to Christ, but it doesn’t. Ecclesiastes12:10 says, “The preacher sought
to find out acceptable
words, and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.” The very words we read are absolutely
true. Written scripture overrides science.
“Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days;
and caused the dayspring to know his place. That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken
out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.” (Job 38:12-14). The “it” (vs.
13) refers to the dayspring or morning or the sun. “It” in vs. 14 might appear to refer to the earth. First we
need to see how the words ‘seal’ and ‘clay’ is used elsewhere. Esther 8:8 says, “Write ye also
for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring: for the writing which is
written in the king’s name, and sealed with the king’s ring, may no man reverse.” When you write your hand
and fingers move. The seal on the king’s ring on the king’s finger is moving. Every morning the seal makes
an impression on the stationary clay. How do we know the clay is stationary? 1 Kings 7:46 says, “In the plain of Jordan
did the king cast them, in the clay ground” The ground does not move and the clay is in the ground. 2 Chronicles
4:17 also says, “the clay ground” So, the earth does not turn. The sun revolves around the earth daily.
Psalms73:9 says, “They (the
wicked, vs.3) set their mouth against the heavens”
Secular scientist proclaim the heavens are not geocentric. God’s word knew in
advance that secular astronomers would
be against geocentricity. Galatians 1:8 says, “But though we, or an angle from heaven preach any other gospel unto you
than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
Genesis 1:7 says, “And God
made the firmament, and divided the waters under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament” Events
in scripture always occur twice such as: “For as Jonas was three days and three nights…so shall the Son of man
be three days and three nights.” (Matt 12:40). What occurs below the firmament also occurs above the firmament. The
event happens twice: Psalms 104:6,
9 says, “the
waters stood above the mountains…Thou hast set a bound” As the waters below the firmament on the earth
were bound, so also the waters above the firmament are also bound. How do we know? “He hath compassed the waters
with bounds, until day and night come to an end.” (Job 26:10). Day and night is caused by the movement of the
sun over the earth; so this verse refers to the waters above the
firmament being bound.
“Or who shut up the sea…and
set bars and doors” (Job 38:8, 10). Does the word ‘sea’ refer only to the ocean or sea? Genesis 1:10 says, “the waters called he (God) Seas” Isaiah 11:9 and Habakkuk
2:14 both say, “as the waters cover the sea” The Lord is telling
us that: ‘the waters cover the waters’ The waters above the firmament
firmament being bound. The supporting verse is: “Who hath ascended
up into heaven…who hath bound the waters in a garment?” (Proverbs 30:4). The waters above the firmament
universe has a boundary. The waters above the firmament are next to the darkness and these
waters are also
bound with bars and doors. “and
as for darkness, where is the place thereof. That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof” (Job 38:19, 20)
The waters above the firmament
are next to the darkness and these waters are also bound with bars and doors. “He hath compassed the waters with bounds,
until day and night come to an end.” (Job 26:10). Day and night is caused by the movement of the sun over the earth.
“Who hath ascended up into heaven…who hath bound the waters in a garment?” (Proverbs 30:4). Clearly,
the waters above the firmament are limited.The universe has a boundary. Job 38:11 says, “And said, Hitherto shalt thou
come, but no further: and here shall the proud waves be stayed.” Psalms 47:9 says, “shields of the earth
belong unto God” These shields exist above the earth and are located at the end of the universe. The mate verse is “the
borders of the earth” (Psalms 74:17). The shields and borders of the earth exist together at the end of the finite
Creationist claim that “the
rising of the sun” (Malachi 1:11) really means ‘the rotation of the earth.’ The Lord Jesus Christ always
took the scriptures literally and so should we. Literal means true to the fact. James 1:17 says, “…Father of
lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” Variable means: assume any one of a set of values.
“No variableness” means the opposite. We cannot tell the
Lord what he meant to say. We cannot
assume that verse 11 means, the turning of the earth. Scripture is correct; the sun rises over the earth daily. Daniel 10:21
says, “scripture of truth.” Whatever the King James Bible says is the actual truth. Titus 1:2 says, “which
God, that cannot lie.” Scripture is God in written form.
“let God be true, but every man a liar” (Rom
3:4). Let scripture be true, but every secular
29:29 says, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong
unto us…that we may do all the words of this law.” The Lord has revealed in scripture, absolutely all there is
in deep outer space.
7 Stars are there, but not galaxies. The Lord would have told us about galaxies,
if they existed. One person objected to this saying: the words: x-rays, telephones, cars and
computers are not in scripture, yet they exist. The truth
is: scripture does refer to them. x-rays – Job 37:18 says, “and as
a molten looking glass”
Cars - Nahum 2:3 says,
“chariots shall be with flaming torches”
Computers. “Blessed be the
Lord…which teacheth…my fingers to fight” (Psalms 144:1). Backing this up is Job 38:35: “Canst thou
send lightnings , that they may go,
and say unto thee, Here we are?” This means that the KJV is totally up to date.
“He revealeth the deep and
secret things” (Daniel 2: 22). If galaxies existed in deep outer space, the word would be revealed in scripture. Scripture
is very much up to date as to what exists and what does not exist. “I will utter things which have been kept secret
from the foundation of the world” (Matthew 13:35). Scientist are:
by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (2 Cor 10:12). Instead, we need to measure
the truth by what God’s word tells us. Ecclesiastes 7:24 says, “That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who
can find it out?” Scientist claim they know the distance to the
stars, but it is God’s word
in scripture that reveals the actual true distance. Hebrews 11:3 says, “Through faith we understand that the worlds
were framed by the word of God” Faith in redemption without faith in creation and geocentricity and a relatively
small universe is impossible in any meaningful sense.
FOUNDATION Job 38:4 says, “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?” The earth has foundations,
and the foundations are “fastened” (vs.6). The earth’s foundation is locked down tight. “Of old hast
thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands” (Psalms 102:25). The opposite is true
of the sun. It has no
foundation. It is moving. The
works of creation; “were finished from the foundation of the world” (Hebrews 4:3). The universe is not expanding.
The universe is finite, relatively small. Only the Lord is infinite. Zechariah 12:1 says, “…the Lord, which stretcheth
forth the heavens and layeth the foundation of the earth…” The earth has an immovable foundation.
the earth really immovable? Psalms 99:1 says, “…let the earth be moved” This takes place later at the judgment.
The mate verse says the same thing. “…the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved” Isaiah 24:19).
Isaiah 13:13 says, “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of
the Lord of hosts and in the day of his fierce anger.” This occurs in the future on judgment day. “Truth shall
spring out of the earth” (Psalms 85:11).
ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven…thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.” (Psalms 119:89,
90) It is stationary. “I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.” (vs.96)
God’s commands are perfect. We do not have to worry about changing “the sun riseth” (2 Samuel 23:4) to:
the turning of the earth.
