Flat Earthers Kan Ev Art And Nathan Roberts Discussion About The Sun Of Righteousness

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

In the Official Flat Earth & Globe Discussion facebook group, which Nathan Roberts is the admin; my name came up when someone posted my Biblical Proofs Of The Globe Earth study, to rebut Nathan.

Nathan proceeded to say that I am a shill, saying “He is nothing more than a user account who published a website that twists God’s Word in favor of man-made philosophies and delusions. Yeah…it’s (“David Nikao”) just a “user account”…no evidence of a real person behind it.”

The person asked, “Are you implying he’s a bot?”

Nathan replied with “I’m implying there’s no evidence otherwise. I wish he’d show his face. Right now he hides behind his user account and spews lies and deception!”

Then Kan Ev Art chimed to say “This David guy is actually a new Age gnostic fool – anyone who refers to Yashua/Jesus as the Sun is an Antichrist. The funniest thing was: “…not every line is straight.” Lol”

Nathan Roberts asked: “Kan Ev Do you have articles or screenshots of David’s statements that prove his gnostic beliefs? Please share with me.”

Kan Ev Art said: Nathan it’s in plain sight. Here are a few screen shots that prove he’s referring to Jesus as the Sun and portrays the Bible not as literal story but as the story of the stars. And we all know very well: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” 2 John 1:7 KJV

And Kan posted this images as proof of my supposed gnostic beliefs:

He obviously does not understand the context of the verse that he is citing. The sun in prophecy is pointing to the leader, as in the Roman Emperor.

Malachi 4:2 proclaims that ‘The Sun of Righteousness’ is Messiah.  There’s nothing gnostic about that statement.  Messiah is our righteous leader, He is our sun.

“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”

Here’s Bible commentaries from esteemed theologians who explain just that:

Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible on Malachi 4:2

You that fear my name – The persons mentioned in the sixteenth verse of the preceding chapter, ye that look for redemption through the Messiah.

The Sun of righteousness – The Lord Jesus, the promised Messiah; the Hope of Israel.

Geneva Bible Footnotes -Malachi 4:2

But unto you that fear my name shall the bSun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go cforth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

b. Meaning, Christ, who with his wings or beams of his grace would enlighten and comfort his Church; Eph 5:14. And he is called the “Sun of righteousness”, because in himself he has all perfection, and also the justice of the Father dwells in him: by which he regenerates us to righteousness, cleanses us from the filth of this world, and reforms us to the image of God.

Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible Malachi 4:2

You that fear my name; so are they described to us who were written in the book of remembrance, Malachi 3:16; who loved the law of their God, and kept it; who believed his promises, and rejoiced in expectation of the good promised; who believed his threats and trembled at them, that they might rest in the day of trouble, as Habakkuk 3:16; who walked humbly with their God.

The Sun; Christ, who is the day.spring from on high, Lu 1:78: or, as most elegantly described Isaiah 60:1-3, who is very fitly compared to the sun; Fountain of light and vital heat to his church, he enlightens and enlivens every one John 1:4,9.

The point is that just like the Sun of Righteousness is pointing to Messiah, who is righteous; the ‘sun’ of prophecy is pointing to a leader; so it is not pointing to the actual dimming of the sun, which Nathan Roberts implied in his supposed flat earth Bible verse list.

Case in point is the 4th Trumpet of Revelation, which happened after the decline of the Roman Empire due to the seal judgments; and the previous armies attacking the Roman Empire due to the previous three trumpet judgments.

4th Trumpet – The SunMoon and Stars symbolizes leadership structure. Here it represents God using Odoacer and the Heruli, a branch of the Goths, to cause the downfall of Roman leadership when Romulus Augustalus, the last Roman Emperor (the Sun) of the West was captured in 476 A.D. The hierarchy of Roman leaders (moon and stars) would have lost their power too.

Here’s a video that explains the sun of the 4th Trumpet:

So we can see that flat earther Kan Ev Art has no clue what he is talking about in regard to the Sun of Righteousness, and the prophecy usage of the word ‘sun’.

If you want to study prophecy fulfillment, this website, written by me, David Nikao, not a ‘bot’ as Nathan Roberts implies; here’s a link to my Revelation Timeline Decoded website.
