05──THE UNIVERSE FROM THE BIBLE (Ends of the earth)
- Lights IN the Firmament
- The sun, moon, and stars are nothing but light, and they are not “luminous spheres”.
- Thus says the Lord, Who gives the sun for a light by day, The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night… (The Lord of hosts is His name)… (Jeremiah 31:35-NKJV)
- For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash with their light; The sun will be dark when it rises, And the moon will not shed its light.(Isaiah 13:10-AMP)
- …but as regards size they are both equal. (BOOK OF ENOCH 72:37)
- and his light is sevenfold brighter than that of the moon… (BOOK OF ENOCH 72:37)
- Of all the stars, the North Star appears to stand still
- He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing. (Job 26:7)
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. (Genesis 2:5-6)
- Before the deluge there was no rain
- the mists had taken care of that
- Rain was not part of the original system
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month, on that same day all the fountains of the great deep [subterranean waters] burst open, and the windows and floodgates of the heavens were opened. (Genesis 7:11-AMP)
- And the Lord opened seven flood-gates of heaven, And the mouths of the fountains of the great deep, seven mouths in number. (The Book of Jubilees 5:24)
- And again I raised mine eyes towards heaven and saw a lofty roof, with seven water torrents thereon, and those torrents flowed with much water into an enclosure. (Book of Enoch 89:2)
- Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens! (Psalm 148:4)
If there had already been refraction before on the earth, rainbow becomes meaningless. But after our world-wide flood, the rainbow appeared for the first time. God was starting over and He called it an “everlasting covenant” for a reason.
Ends of the earth
Who has ascended into heaven and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in His garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name?
Certainly you know! (Proverbs 30:4)
- “When He established the heavens, I was there, When He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep, When He made firm the skies above, When the springs of the deep became fixed, When He set for the sea its boundary So that the water would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth; (Proverbs 8:27-29-NASV)
- You set a boundary they cannot cross; they will never cover the earth again. (Psalm 104:9-HCSV)
- He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters, At the boundary of light and darkness.(JOB 26:10-NKJV)
The ancient Chinese belief that “the heaven is round and the earth square” – It is a manifestation of the Chinese yin and yang theory. It is also an ancient Chinese understanding of the universe-that is, “the sky is as round as a cover, and the earth is like a chess game”.
- After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. (Revelation 7:1)
- He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. (Isaiah 11:12)
Flat earth or Globe-shaped
“These were the visions of my head while on my bed:
I was looking, and behold,
A tree in the midst of the earth,
And its height was great.
The tree grew and became strong;
Its height reached to the heavens,
And it could be seen to the ends of all the earth. (Daniel 4:10-11)
And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”(Genesis 11:4)
Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. (Matthew 4:8)
Book of Enoch 18:1-5
1 And I saw the storehouses of all the winds, and I saw how with them He has adorned all creation, and I saw the foundations of the Earth.
2 And I saw the cornerstone of the Earth. And I saw the four winds which support the Earth and the sky.
3 And I saw how the winds stretch out the height of Heaven, and how they position themselves between Heaven and Earth; they are the Pillars of Heaven.
4 And I saw the winds which turn the sky and cause the disc of the Sun and all the stars to set.
5 And I saw the winds on the Earth which support the clouds and I saw the paths of the Angels. I saw at the end of the Earth; the firmament of Heaven above.
