Biblical Proofs Of The Globe Earth
This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.
This page lists the common verses that flat-earthers cite to supposedly prove the flat earth, but which are taken out of context or take too literally.
Flat-earthers cite Isaiah 40:22 to say that the world circle (chuwg) points to a circular flat earth, not a ball.
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
Let’s back up to get the context of the verse. Elohim is declaring the glory of His creation.
And to whom would you liken Ěl? And what likeness would you compare to Him? The workman moulds a graven image, and the goldsmith overspreads it with gold, and the silversmith casts silver chains. Isaiah 40:18-19
He is declaring that the works of man are nothing as compared to His creativity and power. Then He points out His Mazzoroth, the twelve signs in the circle of the Mazzoroth, which have proclaimed His plan of redemption from the beginning.
Did you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? Isaiah 40:21
Do you bring out the constellations (Mazzoroth) in its season? Or do you lead the Bear with its sons. Job 38:32
The CIRCLE in Isaiah 40:22 is the Mazzoroth in the sky above, that has 12 constellations in a circle on the ecliptic, which declare the Gospel. It is like a curtain which covers the earth, and in which the stars dwell.
We see that Elohim tells them to look up to the circle of the stars of the Mazzoroth.
Lift up your eyes on high and see. Who has created these? He who is bringing out their host by number, He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power – not one is missing. Isaiah 40:26
“He appoints the number of the stars, He gives names to all of them.” Psalm 147:4
So one can clearly see that when Elohim referred to the circle of the Earth, He is referring to the circle of the Mazzoroth which acts as a constant witness to those on earth, about His great power, and about His redemption plan.
The same Hebrew word, chuwg, is used in Job 22:14 to describe the circuit of heaven. “Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit (chuwg) of heaven.”
Job 38:4 is talking about the creation of the earth, not the physical foundation.
“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”
The Hebrew word yacad is a primitive root; to set (literally or figuratively); intensively, to found; reflexively, to sit down together, i.e. settle, consult:—appoint, take counsel, establish, (lay the, lay for a) found(-ation), instruct, lay, ordain, set, X sure.
So the word foundation isn’t necessarily pointing to the physical property, but the time of creation.
Proverbs 3:19 reinforces the point:
“The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.”
Job 38:18 simply points to the width of the earth. The Hebrew word is rachab, which means: a width:—breadth, broad place. Both the flat earth and globe earth have a width.
Have you understood the breadth of the earth? Declare, if you know it all.
Job 26:10 is declaring that the land will hold the water back, not an ice wall.
I love the irony of this meme. They are declaring Job 26:10 to proclaim that the waters are compassed by the supposed ice ring that surrounds the flat earth, but the picture conveys the true intent of Scripture, that land would hold the waters back.
Revelation 20:9 is talking about mountain or plateau, not a flat earth.
“And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”
The Greek word for earth is ge, is not referring to the whole earth, but to the land of Jerusalem.
ge = which means: by extension a region, or the solid part or the whole of the terrene globe (including the occupants in each application):—country, earth(-ly), ground, land, world.
Just as the city of Jerusalem is set up on a hill, the New Jerusalem will also be set up high.
The armies of the enemies will go up to Jerusalem, to seek to attack it.
Flat earthers proclaim that Matthew 4:8 proves the flat earth.
Matthew 4:8 “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;”
Simple logic tells us that even on a flat earth, there is no mountain in the world from which you can view all the kingdoms of the world.
So it’s either figurative language; or Satan, the prince of the air, was able to somehow show the grand places of the earth.
The word ‘pillars‘ in 1 Samuel 2:8 is referring to leaders of the earth, not physical pillars that support the flat earth.
1 Samuel 2:8 “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.”
First, let’s apply logic. When constructing a large structure, a foundation is created and then the pillars are mounted on top of the foundation.
Does it make any sense to place pillars under the flat earth, since the pillars would not be mounted on top of a foundation, but rather would sit in open space?
The first part of 1 Samuel 2:8 tells you that the latter part is not talking about the creation/design of the earth.
Rather it is talking about the leaders of the earth, the pillars, who Elohim controls to uphold civil order in the world.
The previous verse is talking about raising people up in status, and bringing them down.
“The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.” 1 Samuel 2:7
The next few verses are talking about the saints being preserve from the wicked, and the adversaries of the lord being broken to pieces.
Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible
The princes or governors of the earth, which are called the corners, or corner-stones, of a land or people, Jg 20:2; 1Sa 14:38; Zep 3:6, and are fitly called pillars, because they uphold the world, and keep it from sinking into confusion. See Ps 74:2; Jer 1:18; Re 3:12. And these are here said to be the Lord’s, by creation and constitution, because he advanceth them to their state, and preserves them in it, Pr 8:15-16, and puts the world, or the kingdoms of the world, upon them, as burdens upon their shoulders: see Isa 9:6.
John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
Figuratively, the pillars of the earth may design the princes of the world, the supreme rulers of it, and civil magistrates, who are sometimes called cornerstones, and the shields of the earth, Zec 10:4, and so pillars, because they are the means of cementing, supporting, and protecting the people of the earth, and of preserving their peace and property. Likewise good men may be meant in a figurative sense, who, as they are the salt of the earth, are the pillars of it, for whose sake it was made, and is supported, and continued in being; the church is the pillar and ground of truth; and every good man is a pillar in the house of God, and especially ministers of the Gospel; see Re 3:12.
Revelation 3:12 is saying that the overcomers will be made leaders, pillars, in heaven.
“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”
So we can clearly see that 1 Samuel 2:8 is not talking about the physical design of the earth, but to the leaders of the earth, whom Elohim controls.
The word ‘firmament’ simply means ‘expanse’.
The Hebrew word for firmament is raqiya` from 7554; properly, an expanse, i.e. the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky:—firmament.
They point to the root word raqa, but it is simply describing something that is spread out, an expanse.
The Scriptures (ISR98) is a better translation than the King James, and it uses the word ‘expanse’ instead of ‘firmament’.
And Elohim said, “Let an expanse come to be in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And Elohim made the expanse, and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it came to be so. And Elohim called the expanse ‘heavens.’ And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the second day.
Once again the ISR98 renders the proper word, expanse, in Genesis 1:14-18.
Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and appointed times, and for days and years, and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth. And it came to be so. And Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, and the stars. And Elohim set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And Elohim saw that it was good.
Job 37:18 is simply declaring the glory of a clear sky, which allows you to see the many stars, which reflects the glory of Elohim’s creation.
Did you, with Him, spread out the clouds, strong as a hard mirror? ISR 98
Psalm 19:1-6 is talking about the 12 constellations of the Mazzaroth which encircle the earth on the ecliptic, and in which the Sun travels to tell the redemption story.
“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. His 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.“
Psalm 148:4 simply points to how the water cycle of the earth causes great stores of water to collect in the clouds, vapors, air, leading to rain, snow and hail.
Praise Him, heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens!
They say that there is a glass dome above the Earth
They base that on Job 37:18, Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
Logic would say that a glass dome would reflect the sunlight and cause glares all over the earth. It’s proclaiming that the sky is spread out and clear.
They didn’t have molten glass back then, so it is pointing to a mirror; which back then would have been made of polished brass.
The ISR98 Bible renders it, Did you, with Him, spread out the clouds, strong as a hard mirror?
They point to Daniel 4:10 to proclaim there is a center of their flat earth.
Daniel 4:10 “Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.”
This is just another example of them taking a verse completely out of context to try to prove their agenda. This passage is not talking about the design of the earth or the place that is the center.
The ‘tree in the midst of the earth‘ that Daniel was describing was king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, who reigned over the kingdoms of the earth.
He was humbled more than any man, and made to eat grass as the cattle of the field, which at the end of his punishment, caused him to praise his Creator.
How flat-earthers don’t bother to read the rest of the chapter, I cannot understand. Verses 20-22 tell you who the tree represents.
The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth; whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was food for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the birds of the heavens had their habitation: it is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong; for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.
Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible: A tree: those that write of the language of the East tell us that a tree denote some excellent man. Thus the prophet Ezekiel, Ezekiel 31 throughout, describes the king of Assyria, and Pharaoh king of Egypt, in their flourish, height, and great fall, comparing them to huge cedars.
And besides that, everyone on the flat earth can’t see the sun, which is supposedly 3,000 miles high, so how would they all see a giant tree?
Flat Earthers say that Scripture declares that the moon creates its own light.
“For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising, and the moon not send out its light.” ~ Isaiah 13:10
If taken literally, as if speaking about the heavens, then it clearly says that the stars won’t give off their light either. Stars do not provide their own light, but are luminaries which reflect the Sun’s light; so it does not prove that the moon provides it’s own light.
But it really is pointing to the overthrow of the Babylonian kingdom. The ‘sun, moon and stars’ are symbolic of earthly dignitaries, great political authorities and great lights in the political or religious heavens.
We know this because in Genesis 37:8-10, Joseph had a dream, ..”And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me. So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” It was symbolic of the power structure.
Isaiah 13:10 is referring to the Babylonian leaders being removed from power by the Medo-Persians; not to the literal heavenly bodies.
“For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.“
Isaiah 13:17 confirms this with, “Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them,”
Isaiah 30:26 again is not referring to the literal heavenly bodies:
“And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that יהוה binds up the breach of His people, and heals the wound of His blows.”
By moon, sun, light, are to be understood the abundance of spiritual and temporal felicity with which Elohim should bless them in the days of the Messiah, which should be sevenfold, i.e. vastly exceed all that they had ever before possessed.
Messiah is the Sun, His followers are the Moon, who reflect His light.
And once again Matthew 24:29 is pointing to the political leadership of the Jews.
“And immediately after the distress of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.”
This is about the High Priest (sun) and the Sanhedrin (moon) and other priests (stars) being cast down from power by the Romans in 70 A.D. Read The Sun, Moon And Stars
Revelation 6:13-14 symbolizes the decline of the mighty Roman Empire, when there was great political upheaval. Read Revelation 6 – 6th Seal Earthquake
And the stars of the heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind. And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
They cite Revelation 1:7 to say that only on a flat earth could everyone see Messiah return.
See, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth shall mourn because of Him. Yes, Amĕn.
But that doesn’t prove the flat earth, because there is no place on the flat earth where Messiah could return, that every person in every country could see. Can you see the sky over Jerusalem from where you live? No!
They cite Revelation 9:1 to say that only a flat earth can have a bottomless pit.
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Revelation 9:1 is pointing to the rise of Islam from the bottomless pit of Satan’s deceptions, which has deceived many people. It’s not describing a real pit of the earth.
The earth is immovable, which may point to the geocentric position of the earth, but it does not prove that the earth is flat.
1 Chronicles 16:30 is simply saying that the kingdom of Elohim will never be moved.
Tremble before Him, all the earth. The world also is firmly established, immovable.
Psalm 93:1 is echoing the statement of 1 Chronicles 16:30. They simply are not passages that are talking about the design of the earth, but rather about the mighty power of Elohim.
יהוה shall reign, He shall put on excellency; יהוה shall put on strength; He shall gird Himself. Indeed, the world is established, immovable.
Psalm 93:2 says, Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting.
Flat earthers wrongly proclaim that Psalm 96:10 declares a fixed earth position.
Flat earthers post memes like this that say that the Bible proclaims a flat earth, but what they are doing is taking Scripture out of context to make it seem like it is proclaiming a flat earth.
Read Psalm 96. Does it have anything to do with the creation of the earth or the design of the earth? No!
It a Psalm of David, a prophecy of the coming of the Messiah, and of the calling of the Gentiles that believe in him:
This meme cites Psalm 96:10, but they either changed the words, or are using a modern bible version.
The King James read, “Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.“
The word for world is tebel = the earth (as moist and therefore inhabited); by extension, the globe; by implication, its inhabitants; specifically, a particular land, as Babylonia, Palestine:—habitable part, world.
What is the particular land of Scripture? Jerusalem, mount Zion.
The next verse talks about the earth, that it should be glad. Should we take that to mean the physical earth should be glad? No!
“Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.” Psalm 96:11
Psalm 96 is not declaring a fixed earth. It’s saying that the kingdom of Elohim, made up of those who have a covenant relationship with Him through the Son, will not be moved. And that they will rejoice at His righteous judgment.
Psalm 104:5 is talking about the design of Earth and the heavens, “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”
Isaiah 45:18: “…who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast…”
The King James does not include the word ‘fixed’, “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
The globe earth is fixed and immovable in relation to its orbit around the sun.
I’m open to the geocentric position of the globe Earth, but even if the heliocentric explanation is valid; nothing but Elohim can move the Earth from it’s circular path around the Sun.
Verses that indicate that the sun moves, which may point to the geocentric position of the earth, but it does not prove that the earth is flat.
Joshua 10:12-13, So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Yashar? Thus the sun stopped in the midst of the heavens, and did not hasten to go down for an entire day.
Isaiah 38:8, See, I am bringing the shadow on the sundial, which has gone down with the sun on the sundial of Aḥaz, ten degrees backward.” And the sun returned ten degrees on the dial by which it had gone down.
