Nathan Roberts Flat Earth Where are the 4 corners of the earth on the Gleason map? video

This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.

Nathan Roberts posted this video called ‘Where are the 4 corners of the earth on the Gleason map? – Flat Earth’.

Nathan says that in some translations, the “circle” in Isaiah 40:22 is replaced with the word “disc,” but he didn’t tell us which translations.

Here’s the King James version:

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:” 

When I searched Bible Hub, I only found one Bible version, the International Standard Version, which uses the word disc; and it’s not a good word-for-word translation.

Nathan Roberts cited Isaiah 11:12 as an example of a verse that points to four corners, and he said that “when looking at this word “corners” you can come up with the word “quarter.”

“And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”

Hebrew word 3671 kanaph; an edge or extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed-clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, (of a building) a pinnacle:—+ bird, border, corner, end, feather(-ed), X flying, + (one an-)other, overspreading, X quarters, skirt, X sort, uttermost part, wing).

The problem is that the only Bible version that uses the word “quarters” is the NIV, and it’s not a good word-for-word translation.

When you look at Nathan’s explanation of the four quarters, you see that the four corners meet at the North Pole.  Are we to believe that the remnant are gathered from the area of the North Pole? No!

Isaiah 11:11 tells you where the remnant of Elohim’s people had been scattered, and they were not from areas that were near the North Pole.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”

So even though his explanation creates four corners on the flat earth map, it’s an invalid explanation.

The obvious explanation is that the remnant of Elohim were dispersed throughout the region; so they were east, west, north and south; the four directions.

The bigger problem with Nathan Roberts’ explanation is that the circle of Isaiah 40:22 is not pointing to the earth.  Indeed Isaiah does know the difference between circle and sphere and globe.  He used the word circle to point to the ecliptic circle on which the sun appears in the 12 constellations, to tell the Gospel narrative.

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:” 

The ‘he’ is our Creator, who is not sitting upon a circular flat earth.  He is sitting in the heavens, where the circle of the ecliptic displays the narrative of redemption through the constellations.

The word for ‘tent‘ can be rendered as ‘tabernacle‘; so it’s saying that our Creator is sitting in the tabernacle of the stars which He created.

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 mazzaroth, the twelve signs in the circle of the mazzaroth, which have proclaimed His plan of redemption from the beginning.

The CIRCLE in Isaiah 40:22 is the mazzaroth 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.  It’s a tabernacle (tent) in which the Father dwells.
