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

Nathan Roberts posted this mocking meme about Isaiah 40:22 on his Flat Earth Doctrine Facebook page.

Flat earth verse Isaiah 40:22 circle

He mocks people who believe that the ‘circle’ in Isaiah 40:22 is pointing to a ball earth, but he fails to understand that the ‘circle’ is not describing the earth per se; it’s describing the ecliptic circle that surrounds the globe 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 a circular flat earth; so right there, we can see that the circle is not describing the earth.

Isaiah 40:22 says “and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers,” which reveals that Elohim’s viewpoint makes people look like grasshoppers, so we can see that He’s high above the earth; once again proving that He’s not sitting on a circle flat earth.

Isaiah 40:22 says, “that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.” The constellations on the ecliptic “circle” give the primary message of the redemption story.

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

Let’s back up in Isaiah 40 to get the context of the verse. Elohim is declaring the glory of His creation. “To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.” Isaiah 40:18-19

Elohim is pointing to the circle of stars, which have declared the Gospel message from creation. “Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?” Isaiah 40:21

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 behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:26

Flat-earthers fail to understand the context of Isaiah 40:22, which is pointing to the ecliptic circle of constellations, which proclaim the Gospel message every night. Instead of it being a flat-earth proof, it’s proof of a globe earth.

If Isaiah was talking about the earth in Isaiah 40:22, there’s another word that Isaiah could have used to describe a disc flat earth, but he did not use that word. I’ll cover that word in my upcoming book.
