This flat earth deception post reviews a video from David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride, called Flat Earth: The Worlds Largest Conspiracy.
Video description: In Conspiracy Corner we take a hard look at popular conspiracy theories that will blow your mind and we will see how they line up with Biblical passages. In this second episode we will explore the ‘”flat earth” conspiracy. Join David Carrico and Jon Pounders as we uncover long hidden mysteries for this generation.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride say that the flat earth is one of the biggest deceptions.
I believe that the heliocentric universe model is the biggest deception, as it helps promote the Satanic evolution doctrine. But the flat earth model is another deception, which the enemy is using to hide the true design of the universe, which is the Tychonic geocentric model that show how the sun revolves around the earth and the planets revolve around the sun.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride point to the fakery of NASA and the lunar landing.
Indeed, NASA is a deceptive organization, founded by former Nazi scientists to promote the heliocentric universe lie. But that doesn’t prove that the earth is flat.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride point to a ‘flat earth’ aviation map.
The map that flat-earthers use actually represents the globe earth!
It’s a north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection, also called an azimuthal map projection. These maps can be centered from anywhere, but the north pole is the most common reference point.
You can make them on this Azimuthal Map Generator website, you just need to define the center point with longitude and latitude.
It is a projection of a globe earth onto a 2D map, that has straight meridian lines, with distances from the pole represented correctly. It’s what you would see from the top of the globe earth, with the bottom hemisphere expanded out into the outer circles.
It’s not a proportionally correct map, as it exaggerates the size of countries in the southern hemisphere, as you can see with Australia, which is huge. Australia is at the 45 degree south line, so on that map it’s twice the normal size.
If the bottom of the globe was water, then the edge of the map would have just been blue.
Since the continent of Antarctica is on the very bottom of the globe, the only way to represent it on a north-polar equidistant projection map is to spread it out around the outer circle, as all of the longitudinal (meridian) lines point down to it.
Here is one that is centered from the South Pole in Antarctica. You can see that the continents that are north of the equator are disproportionate. Note that Australia is correctly represented as it is close to Antarctica.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride cited verses that the earth does not move.
This is a great point, but it doesn’t prove that the earth is flat. In the geocentric model, the globe earth is immovable at the center of the universe.
Most astronomers before Copernicus believed in the geocentric universe. Copernicus put off publishing his work about the heliocentric design until just before he died, because he knew that his contemporaries would mock him for his explanation.
The Michelson-Morley Experiment confirmed that the Earth is motionless.
By all experimental indications, the Earth was found to be standing still in space, and modern science was confronted with its most astounding yet devastating evidence that had the potential to destroy its very foundation – the Copernican Principle.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride cited verses which say that the sun stood still and was moved back.
This is a great point, but it doesn’t prove that the earth is flat. In the geocentric model, the globe earth is at the center of the universe and the sun orbits around it.
Psalm 19 points to the sun running its course around a circuit, around the ecliptic, moving through the twelve major constellations every year.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride cite Isaiah 40:22, difference between a circle and a ball.
Isaiah 40:22 is a key verse that flat earthers cite to prove their view. “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 the earth; so right there we can see that the circle is not describing the earth. It reveals that his viewpoint makes people look like grasshoppers, so He is high above the earth; once again proving that He’s not sitting on the earth.
I believe that the “circle of the earth” is the ecliptic, which Elohim created when He stretched out the heavens as a curtain, and spread the stars out as a tabernacle for Him to dwell in. 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.
The twelve constellations in the circle of the mazzaroth on the ecliptic circle have proclaimed His plan of redemption, the Gospel, from the beginning.
Here’s what Elohim is pointing to, the Gospel in the Stars; which the enemy has perverted with explanations of pagan gods.
- Virgo represents the seed of the woman, Messiah the Incarnate Son.
- Libra represents the required price, Messiah the Redeemer.
- Scorpio represents the mortal conflict, Messiah the Sufferer.
- Sagittarius represents the final triumph, Messiah the Conqueror.
- Capricorn represents life out of death, Messiah the Sacrifice.
- Aquarius represents blessing out of victory, Messiah the Living Water.
- Pisces represents deliverance out of bondage, Messiah the Liberator.
- Aries represents glory out of humiliation, Messiah the Crowned Lamb.
- Taurus represents His glorious coming, Messiah the Judge.
- Gemini represents His rule on Earth, Messiah the King.
- Cancer represents His possessions held secure, Messiah the Protector.
- Leo represents His enemies destroyed, Messiah the Victor.
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
Elohim is pointing to the circle of stars, which have declared the Gospel message from creation; which are more glorious than any creation of man.
“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 (mazzaroth) in its season? Or do you lead the Bear with its sons.” Job 38:32
We see that Elohim tells Isaiah to look up to the circle of the stars (host) of the mazzaroth.
“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
Here are a few examples of the stars being named:
- Spica means the Branch.
- Arcturus means He comes.
- Pollux means who comes to suffer.
- Antares means the wounded.
- Sirius means the Prince.
- Elnath means slain.
- Procyon means the Redeemer.
- Vega means He shall be exalted.
- Regulus means regal, the King Star.
The same Hebrew word, chuwg, is used in Job 22:14 to describe the circuit of heaven, proclaiming that Elohim walks in the circle of heaven, not on the circle of a flat earth.
“Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit (chuwg) of heaven.”
This matches Isaiah 40:22, that Elohim sits and walks on the circuit (circle) of heaven. He is not sitting or walking on the circle flat earth, or a globe earth for that matter.
In Psalm 19:1-6, David described the sun travelling through the circuit (the line of the ecliptic), through the constellations of the mazzaroth, which are a tabernacle (tent); proclaiming the Gospel message.
“The heavens are proclaiming the esteem of Ěl; And the expanse is declaring the work of His hand. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, and there are no words, Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun, And it is like a bridegroom coming out of his room, It rejoices like a strong man to run the path. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end; And naught is hidden from its heat.”
So we can clearly see that Elohim is referring to the circle of the ecliptic, which acts as a constant witness to those on earth, about His great power, and about His redemption plan; and the circle of Isaiah 40:22 is not about the shape of the earth.
Here’s a summary meme, which gives a concise explanation of Isaiah 40:22, Psalm 19:1-6 and Job 22:14, pointing to the ecliptic circle:
This book goes through all 240 verses that flat earthers cite, to show you the proper context; because if you’re promoting this list, then you’re accountable for the explanations.
It gives a fresh perspective about the ‘firmament‘ of Genesis; the ‘circle‘ of Isaiah 40:22; the clay turned to the ‘seal‘ in Job 38:13-14; the ‘pillars‘ of 1 Samuel 2:8; the sun going forth in his ‘circuit‘ of Psalms 19:6; and much more.
If you know someone who believes that the Scriptures describes a domed, flat earth; it will help you understand their rationale in citing these verses.
If you’re a believer who’s researching the flat earth, this book is critical for you.
The enemy is hiding the geocentric globe earth universe with false narratives of the heliocentric universe and the flat earth model.
