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 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. “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.
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
readily accept the fact that the earth is a sphere; God “sitteth upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40.22).
But they will not believe the sun orbits the earth daily: “when the sun riseth” (2 Samuel 23:4). “the earth
abideth forever.” (Eccl 1:4) The earth is stationary in the center of the universe. They believe one circle, but not
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. “Know
ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?” (1 Cor 5:6).
“the height of the stars”
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 verse is close and sometimes the mate is in another book.
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. 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.
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”
“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.” (Psalms 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 23:4)
“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)
“when the sun ariseth”
“from the rising of the sun” (Malachi
“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 sub orbits 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.”
16 “I will delight myself in
24 “Thy testimonies are also
are my delight”
47 “delight myself in thy commandments.”
70 “but I delight in thy law.”
Psalms 119:143 “thy commandments are my delights”
Psalms 119:70 says, “…but I delight in thy law.” How can we delight
in the law when we know it’s not true?
Romans 7:22 “For
I delight in the law of God”
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. Scripture is openly
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 looked
through a telescope, but not looked at scriptures.
The drawing below
condenses the size of the universe 23,250 times (93,000 X 2/8,000) from that which we hear about from the news media.
*See Image "Measurements" below*
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.
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 approximately. The actual distance
is known only by the Lord.
“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 universe or heaven is a circle and has two ends. How do we know? Job 38:12 “the
ends of the earth,” The earth is a circle and has two ends as well as heaven. (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, the end of heaven.
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.
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.
*See image "Fall" below*
The King James Bible came in 1611
and the secular world retaliated 2 years later with the false theory of heliocentrism.
Romans 16:25, 26 says, “…according to the revelation of the mystery which was
kept secret since the world began. But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment
of the everlasting God…” By digging very deep into obscure verses of scripture, the size of the universe is revealed. “God
is a God of gods…and a revealer of secrets” (Daniel 2:47).
The drawing below shows how “the mighty God” (Jeremiah
32:18) created the universe according to scripture, not science. “thy truth reacheth unto the clouds” (Psalms
*See image "Galaxies" below*
Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring
forth I tell you of them.” If galaxies existed, the Lord would have told us of them. Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring
the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall
stand…” Things, such as galaxies do not exist. “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 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. Stars are there, but not galaxies. A
galaxy is simply a group of very small stars. Galaxies are extremely small stars in groups. 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?”
The voyager rocket left the earth going 10,000 miles per hour. Then it encountered “thick
darkness” (Joel 2:2) and now may be only going 10 inches per day. How is this possible? “the house was filled
with a cloud… So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had
filled the house of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 5:13, 14). Continuing with 6:1, “… The Lord hath said that he would
dwell in the thick darkness.” The thick darkness in the cloud made movement impossible.
Duet 29:29 says, “The secret things
belong unto the Lord our God: but those which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world” (Matthew 13:35).
Scientist are: “…measuring themselves 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.
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? “Who hath ascended up into heaven…who hathbound the waters in a garment?” (Proverbs
30:4). This refers to heaven, not the earth. The supporting verse is: “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.
Jeremiah 10:13 and 51:16 both say, “a multitude of waters in the heavens.” Keep
this in mind as we look at: Job 38:8-10. “Or who shut up the sea with doors when it brake forth as if it
had issued out of the womb? When I made the clouds the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddingband for it. And brake
up for it my decreed place and set bars and doors” The land of all the continents confines and bars the oceans from
escaping. As there are waters on the earth, there are also waters in the universe above the firmament: “Praise him,
ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.” (Psalms 148:4) These waters above the firmament are
also bound with bars. In God’s word, events always occur twice just as scripture always says everything twice.
This means that the universe has a boundary. Nothing penetrates the bars. Sunlight is stopped completely. Verse 9 has the
word “swaddingband”! This band supports the bars in setting a permanent end to the universe. The waters above
the firmament are next to the darkness and these waters are also bound. “and as for darkness, where is the place thereof.
That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof” (Job 38:19, 20). 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 universe.
All 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.
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 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. The only thing left to believe
is that the earth is spinning on its axis daily.
says, “shall know whose words will stand, Mine or theirs” God or scientist! At the present time, science overrules
the word of God. 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 angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have
preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
“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...” (Job 38:12-14). Both the “it” (vs.13) and “it” (vs.14)
refers to the dayspring or morning or sun or heavens that are rotating around the earth which is stationary in the center
of the universe. The ‘it’ in verse 13 “…shaken out of it?” refers to the earth.
Supporting this is: Job
37:11, 12 says, “Also by watering He wearies the thick cloud: He scatters His bright cloud. And it is
turned round about by His counsels”: “it” is the cloud in the sky in heaven that is turning, not the earth.
Also, 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.
Dayspring refers to Christ in Luke 1:78 “Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby
the dayspring from on high hath visited us.” If the sun doesn’t really rise daily, then Christ hasn’t risen
from the grave. 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 scientist a liar.
“Job 38:4 says, “Where wast thou when I laid the foundation
of the earth?” The earth has a foundation, and the foundation is “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. Every verse, phrase, word and letter in
scripture is important.
Is 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). “I
have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.” (Psalms 119:96) 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.
Proverbs 21:30 says, “There is no wisdom, nor understanding
nor counsel against the Lord.” We should not tell the Lord what he meant to say. 2 Samuel 23:4 says, “of the morning
when the sun riseth”. It is written this way when the actual scientific truth is that the earth turns on its axis daily;
But it wouldn’t look good to read, “of the morning, when the earth turns daily”. So scholars rewrote the
verse. After all, the daily turning of the earth makes it appear like the sun is rising. No harm done! However, Romans 11:34
says, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counselor?” Being the Lord’s private
counselor will not be healthy on judgment day.
glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness…and, while ye look for light…he make it gross darkness.”
(Jeremiah 13:16) Why would God do this? He wants us to come to the truth in His light. The answer is that all churches refuse
to accept and skip over scriptures that are geocentric. It is because of this that they will have to take what is wrong. Ephesian
6:12-13 says, “For we wrestle…against…the rulers of the darkness of this world… Wherefore take
unto you the whole armour of God,” We need to understand every verse.
2 Corinthians 4:2 says, “…nor handling the word of God
deceitfully”. 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 turning of the earth’.
Compare: “He…rising early in the morning” (Proverbs 27:14) to “rising of
the sun” (Malachi 1:11). The man moved, but not the sun. No wonder the world ignores the church; same word, but different
actions. 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 an earthly king. 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
Nahum 2:4 says, “they shall
run like lightnings” In this verse, run means to move. However, in Psalms 19:4, 5 “Their line is gone out through
all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun. Which is as a bridegroom
coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” Now, run doesn’t mean
to move. This false interpretation of scripture has caused great confusion. No wonder church attendance has dropped to 10%.
Ephesians 3:3, 5 says, “…he (God) made known the mystery…as
it is now revealed…by the Spirit.” The relatively small size of the universe is given in God’s word when
we examine every word.
Commentaries on scripture are very
accurate. However, this paper goes deeply into several verses of scripture that they have skipped over. 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, we still do not understand correctly a few verses of scripture in the King James Bible.
