“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
1 John 3:15
The Bible even tells us…
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
What we tend to often forget is that everyone will have to give an account for every word they have spoken one day. (Matthew 12:36)
We ought to use our tongues wisely—especially when it concerns our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Love covers a multitude of sins. Gossip is the opposite; it’s a Satanic trait of the accuser of the brethren.
It reveals a hateful heart. It wants to belittle. Cut down. Destroy.
We are to be our brother’s keeper, not our brother’s killer—like Cain.
Gossip is way too common among believers, and it needs to STOP!
It destroys relationships.
It causes division and strife.
It quenches the Holy Spirit.
It gives the demonic realm legal access into people’s lives.
It breaks trust.
It creates bitterness and offense.
It deters and kills destinies.
It can ultimately cause the victim to forfeit their eternal salvation—
This is why God HATES it so much.
Proverbs 6:16-19 says this:
“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
Perhaps you too have been the victim of of a rumour. Let me tell you; I can attest to how very damaging it can be, and often times, the repercussions can last many years or can even be irreparable.
Maybe you’ve slandered someone, and haven’t even given it a second thought. It may have even felt really satisfying at the time, like a weight was lifted off your chest. But here’s the thing; you don’t have a clue what the implication of those words will have once they’ve left your lips. It’s as if you’ve released firey arrows, destroying everything in their path.
Imagine if we began to think of our words this way…
Words can be curses or blessings.
James 3:8-10 says:
“But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.”
Gossip has a “curse-boomerang-effect” that can cause a vicious cycle. Have you ever heard gossip about yourself and felt the urge to retaliate?
The problem with that is you’re now repaying evil with evil, and it only magnifies and perpetuates the problem. Vengeance belongs to God (Romans 12:19). Christ actually gives us the remedy to “curses” or gossip when they come our way:
“Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”
Let us renounce this abominable practice of gossip, and instead, embrace the way of Christ—which is to use our tongue as a BLESSING and NOT as a weapon.
The catalyst required is a heart of submission to Christ and a daily relationship with our Creator.
May the heart of David in Psalm 139:23-24 be our daily prayer:
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
The Western Church has been living in a bubble. The media, in particular, has shielded us from the bigger realities taking place all around the world. It has magnified a very myopic view of the times we are living in—biblically speaking.
Crisis is not a major trait of the consciousness of the West. As a whole, we’ve been distracted from the atrocities happening all around us in countries like in the Middle East, China, Nigeria and the list goes on. Specifically, when it comes to the hardships and persecution of the Saints.
Instead, we are inundated with a Hollywood utopian depiction of the world. We have the privilege of sitting in our comfy, air conditioned churches, dressed in our name brand “Sunday best”, on our padded, colour-coordinated pews, listening to our concert style worship sessions—complete with light show, hipster- country-chique backdrop, big screen with animated lyrics, hip 5 point sermons and well synchronized child and youth programs. We have no concept of the conditions under which many other less privileged people in surrounding countries worship.
One thing that’s greatly lacking in the midst of such a pristine and organized facade is true fervent agape love and relationship among the Saints.
That’s something that doesn’t come wrapped in a 45 minute Christianese package.
True AGAPE love is something that requires effort and sacrifice. It takes work. It must be pursued—it’s not just handed to you on an offering-plate-style-gold-rimmed platter.
It’s nitty and it’s gritty. We’ve been so conditioned by this artificial celebrity-style-pop- church culture that we’ve failed at real relationships. We’ve been so preoccupied with superficial appearances that we don’t even know how to build, let alone maintain relationships. We’ve become lukewarm.
I know this, because I’ve tried…
In my personal experience, many times over, when I (and my husband) would invest in building relationships with certain people and finally reach a point where we could feel free enough to be vulnerable, and get deep—that’s when the other person(s) would suddenly begin to “social distance” from my family. The love would grow cold. It would usually happen over something as simple as a difference in ideology—whether it was political, theological or otherwise—I’m talking about “non essentials” for salvation—not some grand philosophical reason of heretical proportions.
I’ve reflected on this great dilemma and it’s truly opened my eyes regarding Christianity as a whole.
Let’s be real here: social distancing has been a thing long before the pandemic.
You can have all the superficial elegance and beauty in the world. You can have your programs down to a T. Super cool relatable sermons. Worship music that brings you to tears. The perfect temperature. Even an automated tithing system. But without love—it’s all just noise.(1 Corinthians 13:1)
Sadly, you know what one of the great traits of the end times is according to the Word of God? You guessed it—a lack of LOVE. Not the Facebook or Instagram variety—the true deep, sacrificial, in-spite-of-their-quirks Christ type of love. (Matthew 24:12)
It sure doesn’t help when a lying politicized media megaphone preaches a “fear-thy-neighbour” sermon or propagates a false race-baiting narrative.
The fear based divisive agenda is taking hold of the church—as if we weren’t already in a pitiful state of affairs.
What am I getting at here?
For the first time in history, we are living in the midst of a world-crisis of biblical proportions—and the Church is ill prepared.
And I use that term generously.
Years of lip service have amounted to ankle deep relationships that have only bred limp, cold handshakes, fleeting smiles and disingenuous “God bless you’s”.
We often hear Christians, pray this way: “God, I ask for this coronavirus to lift.”
Translation: “God, take away our problems” …when in actuality, we ought to be asking for God to give us strength and agape passion to ENDURE through the storm.
The storm is prophetic. Anyone who doesn’t recognize that hasn’t read the book of Revelation. You cannot pray away prophecy.
I repeat, you cannot pray away prophecy.
We are in the beginning of birth pangs—any mother knows that birth pangs only get more intense and closer together until the baby is birthed. (Matthew 24)
We ought not to be praying amiss—we ought to pray for UNITY and STRENGTH through hardships during the difficult times ahead. We will need EACH OTHER when persecution hits—and believe me—it will come—it’s only a matter of time.
We need to get on our knees and repent, and ask God to put a deep burden on our hearts for one another. We need to reignite the flames of love and keep them lit. We need COURAGE to preach the gospel to a lost and dying world. This is NOT the time to “social distance”, it’s time to spiritually CONNECT and demonstrate the gospel with our LIVES.
We simply cannot share the gospel with the world if we’re not even living it with our brothers and sisters in the faith. It’s time to stop going through the motions, and get our hands dirty.
True love is characterized by PATIENCE, KINDNESS, A LACK OF ENVY AND PRIDE, HONOUR AND SELFLESSNESS, SLOWED ANGER, NO RECORD KEEPING, TRUTH, HOPE AND PERSEVERANCE! (1 Corinthians 13)
When we begin to put agape love into action, we begin to unlock supernatural gifts that lie within us. Our love becomes contagious. Our faith expands. Our joy overrides our fears and the surrounding chaos. More importantly—the demonstration of our love preaches a living gospel to those that are spiritually lost.
Real love is certainly not always easy or glamorous, but it’s the KEY to GETTING THROUGH the dark times that lie ahead.
It always amazes me how the media can create a narrative out of thin air and sell it to the public. Most people don’t even question it. They take it as gospel.
First off, let’s define media.
According to Wikipedia:
“Media are the communication outlets or tools used to store and deliver information or data. The term refers to components of the mass media communications industry, such as print media, publishing, the news media, photography, cinema, broadcasting (radio and television), and advertising.”
What most people don’t realize is that more than 90% of ALL media outlets are owned by a total of 5–yes—ONLY 5 corporations. This trend of media conglomeration has been steady. In 1983, 50 corporations controlled most of the American media, including magazines, books, music, news feeds, newspapers, movies, radio and television. By 1992 that number had dropped by half. By 2000, six corporations had ownership of most media, and today FIVE dominate the industry: Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany and Viacom.
This should alarm you.
When you go deeper, you realize these five corporations are all interconnected—they have similar goals and visions. You know what those goals and visions are?
To mentally manipulate the general public so they can dominate and enslave you.
Sound crazy? Yeah I know, I know…
Except it’s not THEORY. You can do your own research and find out for yourself.
What many people lose sight of is the fact that we are headed into a global agenda that has been in the making for THOUSANDS of years. The Bible tells us clearly.
Revelations 13 is clear about this. Below is verse 7 as one example of how this “Beast” system, or one world government, will have power over the entire world in the end times.
“Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation”
We are almost there folks.
Furthermore, when the disciples asked Jesus regarding the sign of His coming, this is how He responded:
“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Deception is the FIRST and most prominent mark of the end times.
Due to the acceleration in technology development over the past few decades, such as radio, television and internet, deception has been able to gain a strong foothold over the minds of the masses at an exponential rate.
We are being programmed and conditioned.
One big thing many people miss is that the media creates specific narratives to control our emotions in order to achieve a desired outcome. This concept is know as the Hegelian Dialectic.
Look around you. There is a polarization happening in the world at the moment.
Matthew 24:7 says:
“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.”
The word “nation” is translated from the Greek word “ethnos” which suggests this is not only referring to countries, but different ethnic groups.
Lo and behold—we are living in the midst of a race war. Blacks against whites.
Is it any wonder?
Aside from the race war, there is a polarization in politics—Left vs Right, religion—or lack thereof, and even ideologies regarding the current pandemic vs PLANdemic.
The media is Satan’s mind-control machine…
What’s sadder still is that people are driven by their emotions and the narrative that is speaking to their personal biases, regurgitated by media, Hollywood, history books and the like. What the enemy specializes in is deception. He will give you a big piece of the truth, but he will intentionally leave out and twist certain details just enough to stir up anger and resentment in the hearts of people, to turn us against each other.
Media is a POWERFUL tool, because it has the ability to manipulate information and control your mind by it. What you believe ultimately dictates your behaviour.
And that’s what Satan is banking on…
Did you know that MOST of what you’ve learned in school, history movies, and even what is available online is very misleading and deceptive?
This is very intentional.
The sad truth is that the history you are privy to has been whitewashed. And I’m not referring to the term used to demonize whites. I’m using it in a broader sense;
What I’ve learned over the course of the years I’ve spent in research, is never to allow my emotions and biases to guide my beliefs. Of course biases will always exist to a degree, because we have to take into consideration that each person sees the world through their own experiences; however, I have learned how toxic it is to be driven by biases.
Looking at the world through a neutral and objective lens is a true art. We ought to strive to do so. One way I strive to do this is by listening to other perspectives that are very different from my own and wage them against each other to see if they hold up. I try to put myself in the shoes of the other person. I do investigations from the OTHER contradictory perspective to see if maybe I’m missing something. I invest myself and my time—I don’t just do a quick Google search to “prove” the other side wrong so I can feel better about my own story. It’s amazing how much I’ve learned over the years by doing this. It takes humility and a whole lot of discernment.
It takes dying to self.
Conversation and dialogue is crucial. We cannot allow ourselves to choose a narrative that we are comfortable with and hold to it so religiously that we refuse to look at other perspectives.
This is how cults are born.
It’s the kind of close-mindedness that shuts out any other truth that may actually add critical pieces to a bigger puzzle. And sadly, I’ve seen this all too often.
I’ve heard it said that “what you’re presenting and what I’m presenting can’t both be true, so I’ll stick with what I know”.
I’ll admit, in some cases this is the case, but in more cases then not, we are all seeing different pierces of a much much larger story. The more we listen, converse and research together, the more we can add to that great tapestry of truth.
The Bible tells us in Daniel 12:4 that in the time of the end “… many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
So we have a dichotomy happening: mass truth and mass deception. It’s up to us as children of the light to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
But it’s no time to allow ourselves to become overwhelmed. The Word of God promises us in Matthew 7:7 to “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”
We must never stop seeking truth and renewing our minds by the Word of God (Romans 12:2) because it is the TRUTH that sets us free! (John 8:32)
If we get caught up in the narratives the media is propagating, we will fall prey to the divisive venomous schemes of the devil.
The more we listen to each other and dialogue, the more we realize we have more in common than we have differences as the human race—and specifically—the CHRISTIAN race. Because in Christ, we are part of a new citizenship that is not of this world. (John 17:16)
The video below entitled entitled “Dealing With Racism and Injustice in America” is an excellent example of an interview between Rob Skiba and Vall Owens, two very dedicated researchers, discussing the current racial tensions going on in America and the world and what part the media played in orchestrating it. They did an amazing job in sharing two different perspectives that add to the bigger picture, by agreeing to sit down and having a civilized discussion on this very hot and sensitive topic. It’s almost two hours long, but very well worth the watch:
Satan is our common enemy—NOT each other. When we recognize this, we become united and powerful as the Church.
Satan knows that unity is power in the Body of Christ, so he does everything in his power to dismember it.
What empowers us is our love for God and for each other!
Christ tells us in John 15:12-13
“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
The word for “love” here in Greek is “agape”; the highest form of sacrificial love, as Christ demonstrated for us in dying for us.
It’s not so much about being right as it is about being righteous.
In these overwhelmingly deceptive and ever-changing times, let’s strive for a greater purpose:
To unite our minds and spirits to first and foremost partner with God and the immutable truth of His Word in LOVE, and fulfil His purpose to shine the light of His gospel of HOPE in these times of uncertainty, confusion and darkness.
I DO NOT stand with the MOVEMENT called “Black Lives Matter”.
This does NOT, in any way, shape or form mean that I do not believe that black lives matter.
Black Lives Matter as a statement is 100% TRUTH! Black Lives Matter as a hashtag and a movement is a psyop that grossly misrepresents and contradicts the statement itself.
I will not appeal to the fact that I’m married to a black man, have black kids and family members to justify myself against being an “anti-black racist” even though I believe these facts alone should affirm my statement. Sadly, I shouldn’t have to further prove that I whole-heartedly believe my husband’s life matters, my children’s lives matter and the rest of my black family and friends’ lives matter. But this is the incredulous world we live in.
What I will appeal to is that I have researched and educated myself enough to understand that the Black Lives Matter slogan was hijacked by an organization that is run and funded by the same elites that fund ANTIFA—a communist, terrorist organization who’s agenda is to usher in the Satanic New World Order.
I also do not buy into the divisive media propaganda that further segregates people groups against one other. The Word of God tells us in Mark 3:25: “A house divided against itself cannot stand”.
Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy—his greatest tools are deception and division. I choose NOT to add fuel to the fire of his “divide and conquer” agenda. (John 10:10)
Let me also be very clear about another thing: this does NOT mean in any way shape or form that I do not believe racism exists. I DO NOT deny the atrocities that black people as a whole have had to endure during times of slavery. I do not minimize these experiences and the impact it has made over the generations. I also acknowledge and validate other people groups who have endured similar atrocities, such as the red Native American people or the white Irish Slaves, to name a couple. In fact, slavery is still very pervasive in countries such as India, Pakistan, China and Bangladesh among others. Perplexingly enough, I don’t see an outcry against those in the media or otherwise.
I highly recommend watching this video below that shares some more balanced insights on the history of slavery:
To be honest, I believe it isn’t so much a race issue as it is a class issue. Conquest and power has always been the greatest motive to subjugate populations for mass domination.
At the core, it’s a SIN problem, not a SKIN problem.
To make matters worse, we are living in the last days—the most evil of days— in which the Bible warns us that the hearts of man would wax cold because of the increase of iniquity! (2 Timothy 3:13)
Racism, along with all other forms of prejudice, has always existed. It’s not surprising it’s still alive and well today. The Bible tells us that “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom…” We are truly in the beginning of sorrows, as Matthew 24:7-13 speaks about.
Satan always takes the truth and twists it just enough to stir up strife. He especially gets a kick out of scraping and ripping open old wounds. He’s not satisfied until they are gaping open, bleeding and raw. He is an expert when it comes to playing on our emotions. He did it in the garden, and he’s doing it again now. His focus is NEVER on healing, unity and forgiveness—he is the “accuser if the brethren.” (Revelation 12:10)
I believe that when we buy into the over-dramatized narrative that is pushed by the Satanic Elite (that rule and control every facet of society—including the mainstream media), we are actually materializing it as a reality in our own lives. We are playing by their handbook.
The ultimate goal is not only to subjugate the human race, but to eradicate Christ from society, to pave way for Anti-Christ.
All you have to do is scroll down your social media timelines or watch the news to verify the hate and division happening between different skin-toned people and between people of different ideological views on this issue. It’s the most polarizing thing I’ve ever witnessed.
Our identity as believers is in CHRIST, NOT in our skin colour.
NOT in our past.
NOT in our ancestors’ history.
NOT in the narrative of victimhood.
NOT in the narrative of guilt and shame.
Let me repeat: Black Lives Matter as a statement is 100% TRUTH! Black Lives Matter as a hashtag and a movement is a psyop that grossly misrepresents and contradicts the statement itself.
So if you don’t see me sharing BLM rhetoric all over social media, you’ll understand why.
Oh—and before you call me a “conspiracy theorist”, watch yourself— because if in fact you subscribe to the idea of systemic racism, it demonstrates your own belief in a world-wide conspiracy theory.
I guess that means I can’t be that crazy after all, right?
Don’t pick and choose the conspiracy “theory” that suits your fancy—see the BIGGER picture.
We, as the human race, have ALL been lied to, abused, manipulated, preconditioned, played and exploited at different times in history, for different reasons, as a means to an end.
Nobody is “special”; I assure you, Satan hates us all the same.
If Satan had a slogan, it would read “NO LIVES MATTER!”
He has conspired to deceive the whole world from the very beginning:
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
This is why I believe “All Lives Matter” is a more accurate statement—and don’t believe it’s a detractor from the value of black lives.
Because it doesn’t focus on systemically exalting one people group above others in order to stir up a race war—which was exactly what started black slavery in America in the first place.
“All Lives Matter” doesn’t focus on identity politics during an election year in order to exploit one group of people into giving up their votes. Is it a coincidence that in the last few decades, every four years before the presidential elections, there is a rehashing of race wars by the mainstream media?
“All Lives Matter” focuses on ALL lives—including:
•aborted babies’ lives,
•persecuted Middle Eastern Christians’ lives,
•enslaved African children’s lives,
•third world starving children’s lives
•and child sex trafficking victim’s lives for instance…
—and these don’t get any mainstream media coverage…
This. Should. Concern. All. Of. Us.
Our role as believers in Christ is to UNITE, be a LIGHT and stand against the evil plans of the enemy—not hop on his illusive race-baiting bandwagon.
If God had a slogan, it would read “ALL LIVES MATTER” and this is easily supported in John 3:16:
“For God so loved THE WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish but have eternal life”
The AGAPE love of Jesus is the ONLY solution and is SO needed at this time! Prayer is MUCH more effective than protests—any day of the week!
Furthermore, “…what fellowship can light have with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). The Church can’t do things the same way the world does!
Clearly, it’s NOT working.
Sadly, this topic of racism has torn the Church apart more than practically any other issue! And all it took was an incident that was disproportionally covered all over the media.
Life-long friendships are being severed…
Fellow church-mates are cutting ties and slandering one another…
Hatred, anger and bitterness is overtaking Christians!
This is expected from the world—not the Body of Christ!
Church—we don’t have time to fight each other. We need to discern and fight the REAL enemy, and that can only be done by uniting in spirit and bending our knees— ONLY to our Creator God—not to the agenda of the evil one. (Ephesians 6:10-18).
One thing is for sure, without Jesus, there will be NO PEACE and NO JUSTICE!
We ought to be different. Let’s allow Christ’s LOVE to shine in and through us so the world can KNOW PEACE AND KNOW JUSTICE!
The “solutions” of the world will only stir up further chaos and anarchy; in fact, they will ultimately lead to much GREATER injustice.
The solution is NOT found in…
•looting and rioting
•destroying private property and businesses
•burning down flags
•protesting with signs of long lists of demands, via shouting, cursing and violence
•defunding the police
•tearing down historical monuments
•rebranding Maple Syrup and other food items
•creating a new police-free “country” —such as “CHAZ” (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone)
•dismantling the nuclear family unit
Not only will these secular attempts at establishing social justice cause more chaos and division, they are a sure-fire way to usher in Martial Law and a Communist State—exactly according to the elites’ plan.
If we are truly going to see real change, it has to begin at the grass-roots level—in and through US! It looks like this: “love your neighbour as you love yourself” as Christ instructs us. (Mark 12:31) It’s not always easy, because we are also mandated to “…love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you…” (Luke 6:27-28)
I was really moved by this video I came across this past week entitled:
“How This Black Man Convinced 200 Racists To Leave The KKK“
I have no idea whether this man is a Christian or not, but I couldn’t help but think to myself, what if the Church began to take on the same attitude? And better yet, what if the mainstream media decided to share stories like this one all over?
Wow. What a different world it would be…
I truly hope I’ve articulated my thoughts in a way that is balanced, thought-provoking and fully respectful of all human lives, while being edifying to the Body of Christ. I pray that we as Christians can get to a place where healthy, mature discussions can happen without offence and divisions.
Jesus. Is. Coming. Soon.
We MUST be ready.
We MUST keep our lamps trimmed.
Otherwise, we’ll get so distracted and consumed that we will run the risk of actually fulfilling Satan’s agenda—and missing Christ’s appointed time.
Recently, my husband and I publicly “came out” about our Biblical geocentric world view on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/makeyourmarriagegreatagain3 on the WOKE & FEARLESS Live Series. As expected, our view was challenged by several different people. In one instance, we were presented with a video by Dr. Danny R. Faulkner; an Astronomer, Speaker, Author and Researcher for “Answers In Genesis” who blatantly refuted the flat earth cosmology. Although we had stated in our livestream episode that our intention was not to spark up debate, but rather to encourage people to do their own research, when we were presented with this video, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and watched it entirely. I disagree with every point Dr. Faulkner presented to refute flat earth cosmology and decided to respond.
Below, you will find 21 of my objections, refuting Dr. Faulkner’s faulty rebuttal against the Biblical flat earth cosmology:
1. Faulkner’s motive:
Faulkner’s premise for disproving flat earth is based on pride and defense of his self-interests; his credentials. He makes it clear in the video that he takes flat earth claims very personal and as a direct attack on what he teaches. It is clear right from the start that he isn’t driven by a genuine quest for truth, but rather a quest to defend his ego.
2. Faulkner’s claim that constellations don’t make sense on a flat earth:
Faulkner seems to lack major understanding of what the flat earth model looks like and how it functions. The reason you may not see all the different constellations from different locations on earth is due to the law of perspective. On a globe, in fact, you SHOULD NOT be able to see all the same constellations so consistently since the world is supposedly being thrust through space at insane speeds and spinning on its axis at 1000mph. Yet the same recurring constellations have been present and visible throughout all of history. He doesn’t explain how this works on a globe model, instead, he deflects his argument by looking for problems with the flat earth model.
3. Faulkner’s claim to know the earth’s measurements:
The Bible tells us the earth CANNOT be measured; yet he claims it can be and was measured in 200 BC by Erastothenes.
I stand with the Bible.
“Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.”
That’s pretty conclusive. I rest my case.
NASA claims to know the earth’s measurements quite accurately, and that it has a circumference of about 24 900 miles. Yet according to their own model, there should be a detectable curvature of 8inches per square mile. This NEVER happens.
4. Bedford experiment and ships reappearing phenomenon explained by the light refraction? Seeing buildings such as Chicago skyline from 60 miles away is explained by “a mirage”?:
Faulkner’s explaining away of Samuel Rowbothan’s Bedford experiment is based on the idea that light refracts downwards, which is cherry-picking the facts. What he disingenuously leaves out, is that light refracts UP and DOWN. Interestingly enough, he demonstrates in a picture in the video, how Chicago is about 2000 feet below the “curvature”, yet it is magically “refracted” into sight due to the right “atmospheric temperature”. Please see the experiment conducted in the video below, explaining how light refraction actually works, posted by 7th Day Truth Seeker on YouTube:
According to Rowbotham, the sinking ship effect is most likely to occur when the weather is not calm and the observations are conducted over hectic ocean environments. In more landlocked areas such as lakes, canals, and ocean inlets, and under calm conditions, the effect is less likely to occur. This inconsistent nature of the effect is contrary to the argument that the sinking effect must be the result of a spherical earth. Another point Faulkner desperately fails to address is the lack of curvature at the ends of the horizon. Buildings should appear to be tilting away from each other due to “curvature”—but they NEVER do, no matter how far across you look. This is because there is no curvature. See image below:
Furthermore, Faulkner also claimed that NO flat earthers have been honest enough to test out the “Bedford experiment” in cold temperatures, because apparently, the right atmospheric temperature required to see the “mirage phenomenon” only happens in the presence of heat, thus providing misleading evidence or an illusion for a flat earth cosmology. Well, he’s either lying or clearly he hasn’t searched very well. Check out the video below taken across a FROZEN LAKE in Manitoba, Canada, by Taboo Conspiracy ii on YouTube. Is this a mirage, according to Dr. Faulkner?
This ALONE is sufficient to prove the earth is flat…but I’ll continue.
5. Double standard ad hominem attack:
Faulkner mocking anyone for venturing out in research and posting informational YouTube videos is a typical ad hominem attack on people actually using their own critical thinking skills and questioning what they’ve been told to believe all their lives. The fact that he is one of those very people competing with flat earthers posting YouTube videos is quite the double-standard and condescending.
6. Flat earth was/is believed by different religious belief systems which supposedly proves it’s false:
The fact that people of different belief systems subscribe to a flat earth model doesn’t negate it being true: it’s a moot argument. On the contrary, it further supports the idea that people from different civilizations historically believed in a flat earth cosmology—and derived their astronomical calculations from, to the utmost accuracy. Take the sundial for instance, or even the ancient Egyptian Giza pyramids that date back to 2589 and 2504 BC, who’s coordinates align perfectly with the constellations.
Please read the article below posted in the Independent:
More importantly, most of those ancient civilizations at least believed in the divine; unlike the ideas of someone like Charles Darwin, for instance, who propagated an atheistic evolution theory, and who’s “scientific knowledge” the world’s mainstream educational foundation hangs on today. It’s also no surprise he was highly probably a Freemason himself since his grandfather Erasmus Darwin was a Freemason. He was known for conducting groundbreaking experiments with gases and air, and promoted education for women. He also put forward ideas that preceded the modern theory of evolution, a subject that was embraced by his grandson Charles. I should interject a very important piece of information here; Freemasonry is NOT a benevolent society: it seeks to dominate the world by mind manipulation to turn the masses against Almighty God because they serve Lucifer as their god. The information is available for anyone to find on this subject. Back to my point, I personally know MANY people who have come to faith in Christ because they came to the knowledge of the flat earth cosmology. It confirms the Bible is true, that are the center of His world, and that God intensely loves and interacts with mankind. Alternatively, we aren’t a product of random chance, bolstering through the a vast immeasurable space, filled with other possible life forms—which the Bible NEVER talks about.
7. “Raqia” or “firmament” means “expanse?”:
Faulkner’s translation of the word “raqia” is clearly based on people’s opinions rather than what is clearly expressed in the Hebrew lexicon. According to his logic, we can do away with Strong’s Concordance and the Septuagint, because apparently those aren’t reliable sources. If we are going to believe the writers of the Bible were inspired by Holy Spirit, we can’t just cherry pick the parts we like and throw out those that don’t make sense to us, or we find inconvenient, like many great theologians have sadly done.
“In the mid 19th century, Sir Austen Henry Layard found, at a mound near Mosul, Iraq, that turned out to be the site of biblical Nineveh, a treasure trove of clay tablets with cuneiform inscriptions. Layard had stumbled onto the ruins of a royal library amassed by the ancient Assyrian king Ashurbanipal. On some of these tablets were found the Babylonian creation story know as the Enuma Elish, thought to have been originally written around 1,100 BC. Around 1890, German Assyriologist Peter Jensen translated the Babylonian word appearing on tablet IV, line 145, as Himmelswölbung (“heavenly vault”). At about this same time, a school of German critics of Scripture began promoting a theory known as “pan-Babylonianism,” which held that most of the Old Testament was written during the Babylonian captivity, and the Jewish writers of Scripture were heavily influenced by Babylonian cosmology. It is said that the idea that the Babylonians believed in a vault of heaven, combined with the idea that the Bible writers were influenced by Babylonian cosmology, led to the idea that raqia meant a solid vault.”
The idea that the Jewish writers of the Bible were “influenced by Babylonian cosmology” in order to redefine the word “raqia” to mean something else is a WEAK argument at best—especially if we are going to accept God’s Word as inspired by Holy Spirit and 100% authoritative. Talk about reading your own bias into the text! Why not just accept that the flat earth cosmology was how the world was understood from the beginning? The fact that the Babylonians as well as other ancient civilizations believed in a flat earth further gives credence to the idea.
The definition below is directly from Strong’s Concordance:
8. Earth created before sun does not contradict the globe earth model?:
Conveniently enough, Faulkner has no issues with the earth being created before the sun, yet he claims to believe in the globe theory. He seems to forget that globe theory REQUIRES that the sun come first—because it is the basis for how the cosmology came into formation, according to the “big bang” theory—upon which the globe theory is hinged. Funny how when facts don’t add up, Faulkner conveniently invokes the idea that “God can do anything!”. Well, that would equally include the possibility that God created a flat earth cosmology then, wouldn’t it?
Very disingenuous indeed.
9. Another double-standard; flat earthers read their biases into the Biblical text?:
Faulkner claims flat-earthers read their perspective into the text. Couldn’t I say the same about him? Had he not been indoctrinated into the globe earth view, I can guarantee you he wouldn’t find a SINGLE globe earth reference in scripture. He would, however, see a “firmament”, because it’s written right in plain sight in scripture—several times. (See point #7 above)
10. Literary devices used in Genesis explain an allegorical context?:
Faulkner says we shouldn’t take the Bible literally in all cases—and I agree; however, the creation story is CLEARLY written in a literal context. The Genesis story is NOT a metaphor, figure of speech, poem or simile. It’s a literal account of creation. You can’t get around this painfully obvious logic—unless you are willingly ignoring it.
11. Earth can be a circle or a sphere according to Isaiah 40:22?:
In this scripture, Faulkner admits that the earth is being referred to as a “circle” and claims it could be conceptualized as a circle or a sphere. Fair enough…maybe? However, he categorically avoids the rest of the scripture which depicts a PERFECT imagery of the flat earth model: “He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.”
Was this intentionally not addressed? Probably, since what’s described looks about IDENTICAL to what a flat earth model looks like—again—as depicted by different civilizations throughout history.
See images below:
Furthermore, Faulkner ignores the fact that Isaiah had the Hebrew vocabulary for the word “ball” or “sphere” (which some scholars argue didn’t exist) and used it EARLIER in the text in chapter 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.”
The word “ball” in Hebrew here is “kaddur”. Isaiah could have easily used that word in chapter 40:22 if he wanted to depict a sphere, but he did not. What Faulkner is doing by claiming Isaiah 40:22 can mean a circle or a is a perfect example of eisegesis, or reading his own preconceived biases into the text.
12. 4 corners of earth ignored by flat earthers:
You may be wondering, how do we square that circle?
Isaiah 11:12 clearly demonstrates what the flat earthers (most anyway) believe. The flat earth model has a circle INSCRIBED within a square, (like the image he shared in his video, and is viewed below) with a large dome overtop. Flat earth images don’t always capture the entire image; Biblical flat earthers believe the earth also has 4 pillars, also described in Psalm 47:9, for instance. (See images below for frame of reference) Also, the fact that these same phrases are repeated more than once ( Ezekiel 7:2; Revelations 7:1; Job 1:17; and Job 26:11; Job 9:6; Psalm 75:3 etc) is further witness to this truth according to 2 Corinthians 13:1.
13. Day and night don’t make sense on a flat earth model?:
How it works is quite simple, the sun and moon rotate around the earth, and when the sun is “setting” it is simply moving away from your field of perspective, which is what causes it to appear to be night. This also perfectly explains why in countries like Svalbard, Norway, the northernmost inhabited region of Europe, there is no sunset from approximately April 19th to August 23rd. The extreme sites are the poles, where the sun can be continuously visible for half the year. The North Pole has midnight sun for 6 months from late March to late September. This happens because the sun (which is actually quite small) rotates around from the tropic of cancer, (innermost ring, surrounding the North Pole, in the center of the flat earth) to the equator (second outer ring) and to the outermost ring, the Tropic of Capricorn and changes direction rotating backwards. It’s difficult to demonstrate in writing—please see the images and YouTube video below by Russian Vids:
14. Sunset contradicts the law of perspective according to the flat earth model?:
According to Faulkner’s experiments and calculations, the sun always appears to be the same size, at high noon and sunset. It’s interesting that many other people have done the same experiment Dr. Faulkner has conducted and yielded different results. The sun indeed appears smaller at sunset and larger at mid-day when it’s directly above us. There is plenty of evidence for that—you can do that experiment yourself.
Please see images below:
15. Polaris cannot be seen from the southern skies (hemisphere), therefore the earth must be a globe, by default?:
The law of perspective explains this phenomenon. Polaris is far out of the field of vision from the Southern Hemisphere, just as the sun leaves our field of vision when it “sets”.
16. Flat earthers should see an elliptical shape formed by the movement of the constellations based on perspective?:
Again, Faulkner is misunderstanding how the flat earth model works: the constellations are divided by the Northern skies (hemisphere) and southern skies (hemisphere). They both rotate in perfect circular motions, from east to west. He claims that the Northern hemisphere rotates counterclockwise and the Southern Hemisphere rotates clockwise; however, the “Southern Hemisphere” only APPEARS to rotate in the opposite direction—this is due to perspective. Due to the difficulty in explaining this verbally, see the image below. I’ve also attached a video by Flat Earth South Africa on YouTube that presents a very plausible explanation to this phenomenon, and why you would not see an elliptical “star trail” on a flat earth model:
17. Lunar and solar eclipses can’t be explained in a flat earth model?:
Faulkner’s assumptions about flat earth model are “flat-out” wrong (pun intended). The earth is motionless and the sun and moon are always rotating from east to west, at differing speeds from each other. It’s equally important to understand that the sun and moon are approximately the same size. Interestingly enough, both lunar and solar cycles are predicted by Saros Cycles, derived from the ancient Babylonians, thousands of years ago—and based on a flat earth cosmological understanding. In fact, NASA derives their solar and lunar eclipse predictions from the Saros Cycles—NOT their globe model calculations. Since visuals always work best, see the image below for reference. I’ve also provided a very detailed documentary (taken from the FE 101 Channel on YouTube) that explains it much better than I ever could. It’s a compilation of collaborative research, including the conclusions derived by Dr. Soelistiono, majoring in Computational Physics and Medical Dr. Zhara, both flat earthers. It’s a long video (almost an hour) but worth your time.
18. Flat earthers deny the existence of Satellites?:
Correct! They’ve never been observed by anyone; however, it is plausible to conceive that communication and information can be transported via power lines and cables.
19. Faulkner’s testimonies from “Christian astroNOTS” proves the earth is a globe?:
Dr. Faulkner references two “Christian Astronauts” who supposedly walked on the moon, who personally shared information about their “space” experiences with him. Interestingly enough, with very little research, you can easily verify that the individuals he named were either high ranking Freemasons and/or part of associated fraternal orders; James Irwin, Charlie Duke and Jeffrey Williams. As Christians, we know that these occult organizations are strictly forbidden for believers, because they ultimately worship Lucifer. They are a SECRET SOCIETY, for a reason…This is no secret. This also supports flat earthers’ view about why Freemasons, who actually control governments and every facet of society, can manipulate us into believing lies. They worship Lucifer and follow his nefarious agenda: to deceive the whole world, just as the Bible tells us:
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”
For those who don’t have a foundational understanding about Freemasonry, brace yourself, because that’s a whole other rabbit hole—and leads to many many others—but that’s beyond the scope of this article. However, a good place to start is looking into Albert Mackey’s work, that contains very in depth research on Freemasonry and its origins. I’ve managed to find a free resource of his writings, and linked ibelow:
I also recommend reading Alice Bailey’s book “Externalizations of the Hierarchy” . She was a notorious theosophist and Freemason who claimed to have “channelled” through automatic writing, her “Master” Lucifer’s plans for the world.
Below are some links that demonstrate that the “Christian astroNOTS” Faulkner is so well acquainted with, are indeed, Freemasons. The first source is from Freemasonry.com, the second from the Waco Tribune-Herald and the third from astronautix.com This should raise some eyebrows:
It you still think Eagle Scouts are a benevolent and philanthropic organization, you may want to read the pledge required to reach this rank, below, and assess whether it is compatible with being a follower of Christ.
“(The honor guard, composed of Eagle Scouts will escort the Eagle candidate to the front of the room, near the American flag and leave him facing the audience.) Voice Of The Eagle (Reader): I am the eagle. Since the beginning of time, man has used my brothers and me as a symbol of royalty, power, victory, authority and valor. My strength and courage has inspired men through the ages. Ancient man looked upon me as an inveterate enemy of serpents. They saw the battle between the sun and clouds as between an eagle and a serpent. The ancient Assyrians associated me with Ashur, the great sun god. I was awed and worshiped for my majestic beauty. In the Assyrian myths, I was a symbol of storms and lightning and the god who carried souls to Hades. In India and Babylon I was the symbol of fire, of wind and storms, and the bringer of immortality. In the golden age of Greece, I was a symbol of victory and supreme spiritual energy. I was the sacred bird of Zeus, the ruler of all gods. The Greeks represented me with wings outstretched holding a serpent in my claws. Thus, I represented the triumph of good over evil. In Rome, I was the symbol of Jupiter, the supreme god. The Romans saw me as the symbol of victory. As the Roman legions conquered the world, they marched under the standard of the eagle, with outstretched wings. The silver eagle was the symbol of the republic and the Roman Empire used the golden eagle as its symbol. I became the personal emblem of the Caesars, representing supreme authority. In the Middle Ages, I became the symbol of Germany. And. as falconry flourished as a sport in Europe, only kings were allowed to hunt with an eagle.”
Furthermore, I would suggest investigating Operation Paperclip. According to Wikipedia:
“Operation Paperclip was a secret program of the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) largely carried out by special agents of Army CIC, in which more than 1,600 German scientists, engineers, and technicians, such as Wernher von Braun and his V-2 rocket team, were taken from Germany to the United States, for U.S. government employment, primarily between 1945 and 1959. Many were former members, and some were former leaders, of the Nazi Party.”
Below is an interesting article from Times Magazine, confirming the founder of NASA was a NAZI:
Another interesting piece of information to consider: The Hebrew meaning of the word “NASA”, is “to deceive” or “beguile”. As if that isn’t weird enough, when you pronounce the Word without punctuation, it means “to lift, to lift up” or “to be lifted up”. Funny isn’t it?
See images below:
You know what else is interesting? All the “great thinkers” of the past who propagated a globe earth model were Freemasons. Go ahead. Look it up.
Some more fun NASA facts:
Let’s put some pieces together.
The founder of NASA was a NAZI, all NASA “astroNOTS” were/are or are closely associated with occult/Luciferian Freemasonry, and the word NASA itself means “to deceive” and/or “to lift up” in Hebrew. CIA documents affirm a “flat earth” and “firmament”.
Coincidence? Conspiracy “theory?” I’ll let you be the judge.
20. Stars cannot be seen through the moon?:
Sure they can. Take a look at these images:
Lastly, but very importantly—the ONLY evidence you TRULY need to prove the earth is a globe is this:
1. Prove via an observable, repeatable and measurable experiment (the empirical/ scientific method) that water bends and sticks around a curve or ball.
2. Show evidence of the earth’s curvature—excluding NASA’s cgi images and skydiving shots using a fish eye lens.
To this day, NO globe earth theorist has been able to provide evidence for either of these. Until then, globe theory can only remain just that—a theory. And a pretty bad one at that—along with evolution and Big Bang theory—which most globe earth Christians claim to refute.
Oh but wait—-I can already see someone trying to interject with their “stream -of-water -bending -around- a -balloon- experiment” as depicted below:
Nice try. Clever, but no.
Is the stream of water sticking to the balloon indefinitely? No. In fact, it’s not even touching the balloon. Is the water sticking to a spinning ball moving at 1000 mph? No. The balloon is fixed in place. Of course water can “bend” TEMPORARILY when manipulated, but when it SETTLES, it will ALWAYS conform to whatever shape it’s resting in. Water bending around earth is different from water sticking TO the earth. Not to mention that it is MAGNETIC ELECTRICAL force or FREQUENCIES, NOT GRAVITY pulling the water towards the balloon. Water, when at REST is completely flat and level. Let’s be real here; if the earth were a giant magnet, our cell phones wouldn’t work, our belt clips would keep us stuck to the ground and everyone would be walking around wearing anti-gravity boots.
This “proof of curvature” is a false equivalency fallacy.
Moving forward, there HAVE been some very dedicated truth seekers who have gone the extra mile (pun intended) to settle the debate by performing observable, repeatable and measurable experiments. Again, using the real scientific method. I would strongly encourage all to watch these 7 experiments, posted by NJS Radio on YouTube, conducted by a group of scientists, with NOTHING to gain, and all to lose—especially their reputations—to find evidence (or lack there of) for a curvature.
In conclusion, please read the article below written by Nathan Roberts at Flatearthdoctrine.com, in response to Dr. Faulkner’s assessment of the Genesis account:
Of course, there’s also this footage by russian Vids on YouTube of 4 different commercial airline pilots admitting the earth is flat:
And for the icing on the proverbial cake, we have documented historical evidence by Professor August Piccard, a Swiss physicist, inventor and explorer, known for his record-breaking helium-filled balloon flights, with which he studied the Earth’s upper atmosphere. His findings are conveniently left out of our educational system. According to Piccard, he described the earth as a disk with upturned edges from 9.9 miles up.
Finally, the for the sprinkles on the cake; feel free to listen to the free audiobook written by William Carpenter, entitled: “100 Proofs That the Earth is Not a Globe” below:
I truly hope that I’ve provided enough information to at least cause you to ask more questions and do a little more personal investigation. Just remember, there are ALWAYS three sides to a story; mine, yours and God’s. Another piece of advice I would recommend, is how a good friend of mine puts it:
“Always be prepared to empty your cup to make room for new information”.
Peace be with you, as the Holy Spirit guides you on your quest for truth.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding”
