Flat Earth is a Flat Lie
by
James Scott Trimm


There is a "flat earth" theory going around on the internet. The flat earth was actually a pagan belief. Some thought it was carried on the back of an animal such as an elephant or turtle, and most thought the earth to be flat. Yet the ancient Hebrews knew better. Our prophet Isaiah wrote:

“It is He that sits above the circle of the earth...”
(Is. 40:22a).

The Hebrew word for “circle” here is KHUG (Strong’s 2329) which refers to a “circle or sphere” and is also used to describe the arched dome-like shape of the sky (Prov. 8:27; Job. 22:14).

The ancient Hebrews were well aware of this spherical shape of the earth. Additionally the book of Job told them that the earth is not sitting on the back of some animal, but is suspended in the void of space by nothing:

“He stretches out the north over the empty space,
and hangs the earth over nothing.”
(Job 26:7)


When we compare Luke (17:34-36) with Matthew (24:40-41) we see that at the instant of the return of Messiah two will be lying in one bed (Luke 17:34-36) while two will be at work in one field and two will be grinding in the mill (Luke 17:34-36 and Matt. 24:40-41). In other words the ancient Hebrews were well aware that is night and day on different sides of the planet at the same instant!

Yeshua made the statement that certain Pharisees would “compass the sea and land in order to make one proselyte” (Mt. 23:15). The Hebrew word for “compass” in the Hebrew here is SABIBOT (Strong’s 5437) meaning to circle completely around. It is the same word used in the Hebrew of Joshua (Josh. 6:3, 13, 14) to describe the children of Israel circling Jericho seven times before the walls fell. The Aramaic of Matthew has K’RAK which has the same meaning and which is the same Aramaic word the Aramaic Peshitta text of Joshua uses in these verses. Yeshua was saying that Pharisaic “missionaries” were circling the globe seeking converts all over the world.

Do NOT send this ministry funds thru Facebook.  We recently heard from a supporter who had sent my wife funds for her birthday thru Facebook, hoping to bring her some cheer while in the hospital.  My wife never got notice of the funds and when she checked, there were no funds waiting for her in Facebook.  The supporter now believes that a thief ended up getting the money.  This was yet another attack from the Enemy!  That money was stolen at a time when we could certainly not afford to lose it

Again, do NOT use Facebook to send this ministry funds.  You can send us funds securely using Paypal.  We have used Paypal for many years without any problems.  And we are Paypal verified.

As you know this ministry has been under attack from the Oppressor. 

We just got home Monday after my wife was  fifteen days in the hospital

For those who do not know, my wife Inga ("Kitty") was rushed to the hospital (Harris HEB) in an ambulance two weeks ago.  She was in intense pain and after several days of running tests she had open abdominal surgery.  She has had several complications after surgery, including a blood clot.  During these fifteen days I stayed with her by her bedside.  

This is not a time that I need to be worried about ministry funds. 

This has created some additional expenses for us at a time when we can least afford it, were it not for support we received immediately before this attack, I do not know how we would have gotten by this last week.  But now funds are very low, and bills are coming due. 


Help us keep the vision alive!

Not from what I hear from a friend who is questioning based upon what Mr. Skiba said. He should be careful!

How about this fairly simple dilemma:

If we consider the accepted theory on why we have winter and summer time. According to our books the mean of the axial tilt of the earth is 23 degrees, and this is what causes the alternating winter and summer time from northern to southern hemispheres, and vise versa.

From how I have understood it this means that the axial tilt has to be static where it does not change direction during the time around the sun. Meaning when the northern hemisphere has mid-summer time the northern axis point is directed straight toward the sun with a 67 degrees angle up (90 - 23). Then when there is mid-winter time the angle of the northern axis point would be pointing straight away from the sun with a 113 degrees angle in an upward direction (90 + 23).

Using the information in previous paragraph we can take a piece of paper and draw a circle in the midle representing the sun. Then on the right side we draw the earth with an axis line through the circle with a 23 degrees tilt to the left from the top of the circle pointing towards the sun. This would be representing the northern hemisphere mid-summer time. Then on the left of the sun we draw a new earth with the axis pointing to the left just as with the right one. The northern axis point is now pointing away from the sun. This would be representing the northern hemisphere mid-winter time.

Then to the problem, or dilemma: If we for example use Alaska as a place of example and draw Alaska as a small dot just below the northern axis point on the exact same place on the left side of both "right" and "left" earth we see something interesting. As you can see, on the "right" earth Alaska, pointing towards the sun, has mid-day time when under the axis point during mid-summer time, but on "left" earth Alaska, pointing away from the sun, has midnight time when under the axis point during mid-winter time. This is a 12 hour shift from summer to winter. Meaning 12 o'clock mid-day at mid-summer time is 12 o'clock midnight at mid-winter time. We see that Alaska has to be on the "top-side" on "left" earth for the state to have mid-day time, but in relation to mid-day time at mid-summer with "right" earth this would only be a half rotation. In other words only a 12-hour difference. As we know, mid-day to mid-day are 24 hours. So what is going on here....? At least it seems like the theory presented of why we have winter and summer is crashing with our constant 24 hour day-night cycles :D
