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

It says “CIRCLE OF THE EARTH” on the top of it, referring to Isaiah 40:22.

Flat-earthers and Heliocentrists proclaim that the “circle” is describing the globe earth, but that misses the mark. A circle is a curved line, which has no area – just as a straight line has no area.

The Strong’s Hebrew for the word “circle” is 2329 chuwg; which means a circle:—circle, circuit, compass. The Strong’s Hebrew word for “ball” is 1754, duwr; which means a circle, ball or pile:—ball, turn, round about.

The word ball is used in Isaiah 22:18, “He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.”

Isaiah knows the difference between a ball and a circle, so if Isaiah is describing the globe earth, then he would have used the word ball (Strong’s Hebrew 1754, duwr), not circle (Strong’s Hebrew 2329, chuwg).

But Isaiah didn’t use the word “ball” to describe a globe-shaped earth; as he’s not describing the earth itself.

Isaiah 40:22 doesn’t say “circular earth,” it says “the circle of the earth.” The circle is the focus, not the earth. Just like you would say “the rings of Saturn” to point to the rings, not the planet; Isaiah is pointing to the circle, not the earth. The context of the verse shows that he’s pointing to the ecliptic circle in the expanse of the heavens, which surrounds the globe earth.

Seeing this was an ‘aha!’ moment for me because it changes the whole debate about this verse; as it’s pointing to the constellations in the expanse of the heavens, which encircle the earth.

Isaiah 40:22 says, “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth.” The ‘he’ is our Heavenly Father, who is not sitting upon the earth; so right there, we can see that the circle is not describing the earth.

Isaiah 40:22 declares “and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers,” which reveals that our Heavenly Father’s viewpoint makes people look small, so we can see that He’s high above the earth; once again proving that He’s not sitting on the earth.

The same Hebrew word (chuwg) is used in Job 22:14 to describe the circuit of heaven, which also proves that our Heavenly Father walks on the circle of heaven, not on the earth. “Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.”

In the context of talking about the circle, Isaiah 40:22 describes the stars, not the earth; “that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.”

He’s saying that the circle is stretched out like a curtain, like a tent, which surrounds the globe earth. Above and below the twelve primary constellations on the ecliptic circle are thirty-six decan constellations, which form a spherical tabernacle of stars, in which our Heavenly Father dwells.

The word for “tent” is 168 ‘ohel; which means: a tent:—covering, (dwelling)(place), home, tabernacle.

Our Heavenly Father’s home is above the tabernacle of stars which surrounds the globe earth as a curtain. The forty-eight constellations of the mazzaroth which are based around the ecliptic circle, have proclaimed His plan of redemption from the beginning. They witness to us every night.

The context of Isaiah 40:22 is the circle of stars in heaven, not the earth. Our Heavenly Father is pointing to the Gospel in the Stars, which the enemy has perverted with explanations of pagan gods.

If you’re a flat earther, this book provides explanations of the Bible verses that are cited to justify the flat earth, to give the proper context.
