GEOLOGY, DINOSAURS, CHAOS - WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO THE EARTH?

Huge fossilized bones, vast beds of extinct animal remains, reservoirs of fossilised fuel, massive coal deposits. Where did all these come from? What is the answer to the history of this planet? Does the Bible have anything to say on the matter? If not, then it is strange indeed that God would create a whole new creation over the remains of a previous creation and say nothing about it. Have the geologists, paleontologists and others provided ANY evidence to refute the existence of a Creator God? Or are they all deluded? The truth of the geological history of the world will shock you! The Bible reveals all!

By Neville V. Stevens

CHAPTER ONE

Lies, distortions and fabrications abound regarding the geological history of the earth. Because of outrageous claims on both sides of the debate, the real truth has become the first casualty. Arrogant men have inflated their egos with preposterous theories that cannot be substantiated in any way. And they have paid an enormous price! The true geological history of the earth paves the way for the discovery of untold mineral and energy wealth. This knowledge has been hidden from the understanding of humanity because of their own stupidity!

Across the landscape of the earth is a vast array of distinct lifeforms of intricate design and variety. There is seemingly no end to the complexity and variety of all these plants and animals. It's not difficult for a creationist to view this great wonder and believe in a Creator.

But those who dig into the rocks and sediments of the earth, are finding fossilized remains that don't seem to fit the structure of this present creation. More and more remains are being discovered that appear to threaten the history of the Bible. Since the Bible is claimed to be the divine word of God, it's a worrying time for those who cling to the idea of a divine creation; the weight of evidence seems to be against them.

Some devout creationists steadfastly hold to the Noahian flood to explain the distinct differences between the fossils being found today and the lifeforms that currently exist. They want to believe that these dinosaurs existed prior to the flood and became extinct as a result of it. To them it seems to be a logical explanation. Unfortunately, the over-simplification that this idea presents is very evident from the actual fossil beds themselves. Many of the dinosaur beds show evidence of heat distortion, and there is a distinct absence of human remains in the dinosaurian fossil beds; this clearly shows that dinosaurs and man did not contemporarily co-habit the earth!

Then we have the evidence of mountain-building processes. At some time in earth's history mountains have been formed. Mountain ranges around the world show evidence of lateral thrusting and over-thrusting. Some mountain alignments display the evidence of lateral tearing, where whole blocks have been over-thrust and vertically stacked. Some creationists try to explain this by saying that the mountains have always existed, and the Noahian flood merely deposited sediments - and fossils - between them, thereby presenting us with a viable fossil emplacement. Close scrutiny of this idea shows that it has no substance. It may sound plausible but the actual field evidence totally refutes it.

Then we have the evidence of continental movement. Even the complete novice can view the individual chunks of continental mass on a map and see that they all fit together. In support of this, it has now been found that certain geo-structural alignments on separated landmasses actually match each other. This type of evidence cannot be refuted. The evidence is so strong that theories had to be proposed to explain how and why the continental masses have moved. The established belief is uniformitarianism, which proposes that every action of the natural earth is a long and ever-changing process conditioned by the erosion of the elements; it was necessary to provide a mechanism that could be compatible with this widely accepted concept.

The first theory to arrive on the theorists drawing board was continental drift. The idea was to accept that continents were some kind of 'floating' entity that could 'drift' from one area of the globe to another. Many had proposed the idea of continental 'drift', even as early as the beginning of the 20th century. Generally, their ideas were rejected and they were ridiculed. It wasn't until the evidence of structural alignments of rock facies proved that the continents once fitted together that serious consideration was given once more to this idea. The sixties and seventies became the halcyon years for the theorists. Suddenly they were aware that global geology was vastly different from anything they had previously imagined. Everyone scrambled to find a mechanism that would effect movement of continental mass. Obviously, the tight, unyielding theory of uniformitarianism could not provide the answer, since this theory depended on the natural elements - wind, waves, etc. Equally though, this well-entrenched theory could not be ignored. It could still be supported with clever manipulation of the facts. In support of it, their 'stable' datum became gradual change over eons of time by a mechanism yet to be proposed.

This idea seemed reasonable to all concerned. The most important issue was to avoid the use of the word 'catastrophe'. The use of this word can turn normally sane theorists into foaming, raving madmen. It could be compared to a child tormenting the animals at the zoo. Instead of prodding them with a stick, only the word 'catastrophe' need be mentioned. Instant results! They are so sensitive to criticism of their own rationalism!

It's a shame their diminutive minds can become so inflamed by a word that typifies all that we can observe in our own solar system. The evidence of our sister planets is that they have suffered massive impacting from outer space. Our own moon is pock-marked over its entire surface with craters which have obviously resulted from missiles from space. Only a madman would suggest that the earth, which is a much larger target than our moon, has never suffered the same sort of impacting. Other planets examined by space probes have shown the same pock-marking. Also, we now have a recorded sequence recently captured by NASA, of the impacting of Jupiter by meteorites. To suggest that the earth has never suffered impact on the same scale of the moon and other planets is illusionary!

But, say these blind theorists, the earth has never suffered any form of catastrophe! So headstrong are they in their determination to prop up their own foolish theories that they have totally ignored the tremendous weight of evidence all around them. In addition to that, because catastrophism is so untenable to them, they have never examined the consequences of a major impact from space to gauge its effects on this earth.

The evidence of the fossil record shows that dinosaurs did exist in pre-Adamic times. This evidence exhibits a clear division of two separate creations. The reptilian world suddenly ceased to exist - was wiped out! What emerged after this event was a whole new range of species - the mammalian world. Most paleontologists concede this. They are unable to find any bridge from one to the other. They are entirely separate. It's generally conceded that a mass extinction occurred. Rather than admit that this extinction was sudden, they propose a 'rapid' extinction 'in geological terms' that they believe occurred over a period of ten million years. Hardly a rapid extinction!

Others, who take the more practical line of examining the fossil record logically, have concluded that something caused this extinction suddenly and violently. Some have even proposed meteorite impaction. These types of theories are not well-received by those who hold the line of uniformitarianism.

The one thing that all of these theorists must admit is that the world of the dinosaurs no longer exists. There was no transition - it was total and complete extinction. It is past and buried, and only the fossil record is still evident today.

So what did happen? For those who hold to the inspiration of the Bible as the Word of God, they could expect that God would not be silent on such events. There would surely be some mention of such awesome extinctions that wiped out whole species globally! It would be insensitive of God to allow the evidence of these things to remain, yet record nothing to explain it.

THE NOAHIAN FLOOD

Most biblical scholars have glossed over the contents of the Bible and narrowed their focus to one event - the Noahian flood. They use this flood to steadfastly maintain that it was the cause of all that we observe in the fossil record. How wrong they are! And because they are so steadfast in their assertions, they place themselves in a vulnerable position of being unable to explain so many obvious flaws in their beliefs.

The Noahian flood did occur, just as the Bible says. Furthermore, it did cause global extinction and the fossil record provides ample evidence of this! This is conceded by all but the most logically inept of the theorists. Compared to the previous extinction of the reptilian world however, the Noahian flood was a minor event. But the Noahian extinction demonstrates God's willingness to point the way to the previous and greater event of the reptilian extinction. It provides pointers and markers to the reasons why the first extinction occurred. Not only does the Bible record this event in graphic terms, it also provides us with details of a similar event that is yet to occur! Yes, there is yet to be another global extinction! And the Bible records this event in graphic detail!

Unless we understand what has happened to the earth we will never understand what the Bible is telling us. The Almighty God has made it possible to discover all these things if we seek our knowledge from the Bible and the principles that it contains. One of those eternal principles is 'seek and you will find.' The problem with humanity is they don't truly seek to understand! They develop certain fixations based on human reasoning, and these become their unassailable position. Even more baffling is the stance adopted by those who claim to believe the Bible. They make flowery declarations about what they think the Bible says, and this from a repertoire of a handful of verses. The rest of the Bible they ignore! It's to the 99% of the Bible that they ignore, that the 'seek and you will find' instruction is aimed.

The Bible details many things that have never been understood. In fact, the Bible reveals all that has happened to this earth, and what is more, it reveals what will happen in the future! Forget all your preconceived ideas and prepare yourselves for the shock of your lives! Nothing you have ever been taught, and nothing you have ever understood is true! The whole world is deceived on the issue of the earth's geological history, and because they have chosen to disregard the Great Creator the whole world is about to have their noses rubbed in it - not in words but actual events! After reading this article you will know what to expect! Those who choose to reject it will, nevertheless, find themselves in the middle of the greatest geological upheaval imaginable! And it will happen in your lifetime!

Let's now consider some of the known properties of this globular sphere we call earth.

THE PROPERTIES OF THE EARTH

Seismic detection units, located all around the earth, are used to monitor earthquakes and nuclear explosions continually. Using a system of triangulation from data collected from other sites they are able to pinpoint the location of such events. In other words the system works. When these events occur they are also able to measure the speed of the detectable P & S waves that pass through the earth. Seismic waves increase speed in dense rocks and decrease in speed in rocks of lesser density.

What these observations have shown is that the crustal rocks are of a lower density than the mantle rocks, and also that the mantle rocks increase in density with depth clear through to the innermost zone, commonly called the 'D' zone; a distance of some 2,000 miles from the surface. From this zone to the very center of the earth, the 'S' waves will not penetrate because of lack of density. These waves will only travel through substance - even water will transmit these waves as it does in offshore seismic exploration. But it is clear that no mass can be detected beyond this 2,000-mile limit.

At depths below the crust of the earth at the boundary of the mantle, temperatures are so high that the rocks would melt, but the earth's gravity, acting on the overlying rocks prevents it. If gravity were temporarily interrupted, these rocks would instantly boil, and become a great sea of magma. The continents suspended above it, in zero gravity conditions, would no longer be stable but would be influenced by any force acting upon them. A sudden change in polar alignment, for instance, would cause the inertia of the earth's rotation to apply lateral force and slide them on the slippery, molten mantle.

This would, of course, require a suspension or at least a temporary interruption of gravity. Is this possible? Let's consider a few possibilities.

THE EVIDENCE OF THE ATOM

Many years ago, theorists were considering a means to split the atom. Their hope was that by peeling away the particles would lead to destabilization causing the atom to react with an enormous energy release. This sudden energy release would trigger a further reaction in adjacent atoms and so on leading to a chain reaction. They finally managed to do this and the first atomic bomb was detonated in the Alamogordo Desert in New Mexico. What they had done was to destabilize the nucleus of the atom forcing it to release its energy.

Today this process is quite common in linear accelerators. Through a huge circular tunnel, with a circumference of many miles, they accelerate particles to near light speed using a linear magnetic process. Once they have reached speed, particles are accelerated toward them from the opposite direction, colliding with great force. This process provides sufficient force to strip away sub-particles, destabilizing the individual atoms and forcing them to release all their energy, just like a mini-nuclear explosion. The collision causes a lot of noise and a tremendous amount of heat - out of all proportion to the size of the atoms. This process goes on every day in the U.S and Europe. Man's ingenuity when it comes to exploring true science is unlimited. These people are true scientists in that they are able to prove tangible results.

The same cannot be said for earth 'scientists', because nothing they ever propose can be proven. And because they choose to live in a world of ignorance, they rely on the gullibility of others to accept their pitiful theories.

Now there can be no doubt that many missiles from space have collided with all the planets and their satellites in the past. All of them observed to this date show these unmistakable signs.

The earth travels around the sun once every year at a speed of 111,000 kilometres per hour. Imagine hitting a stationary object at that speed. Or imagine an asteroid crossing our orbital path at the precise moment that the earth cannonballed its way around the sun. A sizable asteroid would cause horrific damage - even wipe out most of the lifeforms on earth. A real catastrophe! But now let's imagine that the asteroid enters our orbital path from the opposite direction and is travelling at the same speed as the earth - an impact speed of 222,000 kilometres per hour. Now we're really talking about energy release. Even a relatively small asteroid of 10 to 50 miles in diameter is going to do more than just erase life. That's 200 times the speed of sound.

An asteroid of this size and speed would release energies on impact that we could not begin to calculate. What would the effect be?

The impact alone of such an object impacting earth at that speed would, momentarily at least, slow the earth and cause everything on the impact side to tend to continue in a straight line. This would cause a reduction in the overlying pressure of the continental masses on its mantle bedding. This in turn would result in a meltdown. If the impact were to occur in the northern or southern hemispheres rather than at equatorial latitudes, there would be a shift in axis. The rotational speed of the earth at the equator is about 1,600 kilometres per hour. At the polar regions its virtually 0 kilometres per hour. A shift of the polar axis would transmit the higher equatorial speeds to the lower latitude speeds. The earth would go into a violent wobble. If the earth continued to turn right over, then inertial forces of changing ground surface speeds would hurl landmass in all directions.

This description is plausible and could happen. It makes a whole lot more sense than the prevailing theories do. But there is so much more to the complexity of the earth, and the above description is vastly oversimplified. Shortly, we will discover that the Bible says it DID happen!

In fact, THE EARTH IS DESIGNED AFTER THE MODEL OF THE ATOM. The same Creator designed both. The earth has a central core just like the nucleus of an atom. This is the gravity and heat generating mechanism that powers planet earth. This just happens to be the major sticking point of the theorists. They will not concede to a rotating central core. This would defeat all their crazy theories on how the earth was formed. You see they believe that the earth and all the other planets are the remnant leftovers of our sun. The theory is that when the sun condensed to form a ball of matter, some of the left-over material remained in orbit around it; this material, they tell us, managed to accrete to form globular balls of matter. In time they all became the familiar spherical shape, developed gravity, started rotating, and somehow, managed also to spin off enough material to create their individual lunar satellites. Because of this theory, which they hold so dear to their hearts, they cannot conceive of a planet having a spinning, energy-generating power plant at its center, EVEN THOUGH TRILLIONS UPON TRILLIONS OF ATOMS THAT EXIST IN THE UNIVERSE DO!!

If you can see the irony in this, the next level of proof of their stupidity is going to blow you away. This proof comes from the universe. It's called 1987a.

A PULSAR IS CREATED

It was first observed in 1987. This mysterious object appeared suddenly out of nowhere and was captured on film -- the first ever to be recorded while in progress. It was labeled supernova 1987a. The theorists claim that a supernova is a star in destruction. The observation of 1987a led to the development of a whole new theory. What they observed was a tiny ball of matter appearing suddenly and shining with great brilliance. This they said was the remnant of a star, which had collapsed onto itself, crushing individual atoms out of existence to form a proton/proton reaction. This tiny spinning orb, they claimed, was the remnant of all matter formerly contained in a star that had been crushed by the immense force of gravity (sic) of the star's nucleus. This tiny orb is supposed to be composed of pure protons which are the theoretical nucleus of an atom. Even knowing the incredible force needed to split the atom, they theorize that the strongest force known, the matrix of the atom, is split by the weakest force - gravity! The remnant of all these atoms - the nuclei, is then supposed to have accreted to form proton matter! Their stupidity defies the imagination!

As observations of Pulsar 1987a continued they noticed that this tiny orb was spinning many times per second and emitting a range of cosmic rays across the whole electro-magnetic spectrum of wave lengths, and at very high frequencies. These emissions were from a pole to pole slit in this spherical mass and the frequencies were modulated by the frequency of its rotations. This led to the unmistakable conclusion that this giant slit was the aperture through which these rays were emitted. The implications of this discovery were staggering to astrophysicists. To this very day, no-one has been able to offer any feasible explanation for what is, ostensibly, a power plant of some form, that has appeared inexplicably out of nowhere.

Shortly after the discovery of the incredible light-emitting aperture, and true to form, a paper was released by a learned professor who said the pole to pole slit in this pulsar was the result of an earthquake. His paper is truly indicative of the type of insanity that is so widespread among the theorists who are totally void of any understanding at all!

A cursory glance of the photos of this supernova will show increasing volumes of matter forming in the vicinity of the pulsar rather than collapsing onto it. Astronomers and Astrophysicists love to speak of great destruction occurring out there in space. Whole galaxies are exploding they say! Every supernova is the destruction of yet another star. They describe their observations in terms of doom and gloom, and ponder the fate of the universe. How deceived they are! On the authority of God, no star has exploded - no galaxy has been destroyed. All that we see in space is still forming! How can we know this for sure? God tells us:

Isa 40:26 'Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.'

That's very plain! The Great Creator says not one of them is missing! God's creation is not falling apart in the universe! God takes note of everything in the universe: Isa 45:12 "It is I who made the earth and created man upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshalled [arranged in order] their starry host."

THE PROTOTYPE

The pulsar is the central power plant of stars and was designed by God AND MODELED AFTER THE PROTOTYPE - THE ATOM! Scientists cannot admit to this because it would demand a Master Designer and Creator. Scientists like the idea of randomness. They would love to imagine that every atom is different - just like the snowflakes. That certain randomness resulted in their existence. They would like to believe this is true of stars also. They are horrified that subsequent observations of pulsars since the appearance of 1987a have revealed total lack of randomness. They are all the result of precise architecture and all have the same properties!

Why is there so much opposition to a revolving, central core in planet earth? They freely admit that Supernova 1987a is a gravity-generating powerhouse, only a few miles in diameter, which they claim is drawing all matter towards it. It's size in relation to the star that they believed was degraded to form it, is miniscule. They also have to admit that the star that they believed was sacrificed to its creation was previously non-existent! The supernova appeared in an empty void! But these people never let the facts stand in the way of a 'good' theory!

As for the earth's core, they are quite happy to concede a static core made of iron or nickel or even gold as one theorist proposed. But they won't hear of an active gravity-generating-revolving core. They have now observed such things in atoms and stars but they become foaming maniacs at any suggestion of a similar mechanism in the earth. They refuse to admit to any form of logical, intelligent design. And in this they are willingly ignorant! It's not that they can't see it -- they won't see it!!

Since the key to understanding the dynamics of planet earth involves an understanding of its gravity-generating mechanism, we need to understand what other discoveries have been made that might clarify certain aspects of this mysterious force.

In the early 1990's, seismic researchers discovered deeply engraved ridges and hollows at the 'D' zone, the lower level of the earth's mantle; some 2,000 miles below ground level. These were discovered using powerful computers to generate images from very sophisticated seismic data. What they showed were channels encircling this inner surface, and huge rafts of matter which resembled continents forming a type of mirror image of surface continents. These were distinct formations and had definite mass. Between this zone and the very center of the earth, no matter can be detected. Any matter at all that has density equal to water would be detected if it were there - but its not! Some theorists have claimed that there is matter there but it must be of a lower density than water and therefore undetectable. These latest seismic images show the distinct boundary of matter - and it terminates at the 'D' boundary. What's more, the outline of these huge chunks of matter (some of them the size of a small continent) shows definitively that some force has reacted with them to cause their distortion.

Naturally enough, theories abounded as to what they are and what they mean. One popular theory is that these are surface continents that have sunk through 2,000 miles of material twice as dense as crustal mass and settled at the 'D' zone. This theory was born in the hallways of the highest levels of this world's academia. Here's the quote from a science magazine carrying the article: 'Some researchers believe that the anti-continents are not only a parallel to the surface but might actually be made of the stuff from the surface - that is, sinking slabs of oceanic crust. ....some researchers take this as a sign that ancient pieces of oceanic crust may be falling to the core boundary and settling there, forming the anti-continents.' (Earth Magazine, Aug 1995, Article: Anti-Matters).

It's no wonder God calls them fools!

This was, however, an important discovery even though their conclusions about what they were observing were in error. These distinct ridge and channel structures show that the surface is not orderly but appears to have undergone some form of stressing. And so they did! The force that binds the atom is the strongest known, whereas the force of gravity is the weakest. The gravity-generating mechanism of the earth doesn't require the same degree of force to interrupt it. Unlike the atom which maintains its intra-matrix bonding integrity and resists deformation, the earth is not so stable - it wobbles a little, its poles shift periodically, and it shudders and shakes with periodic earthquake activity. Apart from that, it's relatively stable as long as no external force is applied. But since, like the atom, and like the pulsar, its controlling mechanism is at its center, any force applied by way of impact is likely to cause severe instability because its controlling mechanism is only a relatively weak force and there is no anchoring mechanism to stop it from rolling over. This should present no problem for anyone since the same effect would result whether there was a central controlling mechanism or not!

We have another planet in our solar system that has rolled over. Uranus rotates at an angle of 90 degrees from the perpendicular. All the others rotate vertically to the plane of their orbit. Logically, we would have to conclude that some force has acted upon it to turn it from the same axis as all the other planets.

When you stop to consider the irregular mass at the 'D' zone of the lower mantle, you have to wonder what could have caused the raised sections and the channels between them. Some of the gouged out sections appear to be several miles deep. It's not the sort of workmanship that one would expect of the Great Creator. What is does indicate though, is that the central core of the earth has cannonballed into it, ripping and gouging out huge chunks of matter with its high-speed spinning action. As a matter of interest, the pulsar spins up to 50 times a second. The earth's core would have a similar configuration. An object that size that spins that fast, whether a pulsar or the earth's core, must have enormous power. If the core came into contact with the 'D' zone, and the evidence of these strange forms suggests that it did, then almost anything could have resulted. Was this enough in itself to cause a major disruption to gravity. Or did the contact cause the spin of the earth's rotation to increase greatly causing enough centrifugal force to over-come gravity? The evidence is not yet complete enough to say how it happened, but we can prove that it did happen!!

The evidence is in the geological record of the earth. This evidence is so amazing THAT IT REVEALS HOW AND WHY ALL THE PETROLEUM, COAL AND DIAMOND DEPOSITS WERE LAID DOWN and where they can be discovered. Because 'science' has so foolishly ignored the evidence they cannot understand. Billions of dollars of shareholders funds are wasted on exploration for these resources based on foolish theories that cannot be proven.

Now you can know the truth!

THE MYSTERIOUS ATOM

Amazingly, the evidence of a central, gravity generating core is in all the matter of the universe! The atom is the perfect example. While the atom was once considered to be the smallest unit of mass, today it has proven to be a whole package of particles, all in rapid orbital motion around a nucleus, which has infinite energy reserves. If this tiny dynamo were to be disabled the mass of the whole atom would disappear from existence. This is because the mass of an atom is extremely rarified in relation to its volume. This nucleus holds it all together. If we were to magnify an atom to infinity and view it, we would see an amazing assortment of particles faithfully performing their orbital gyrations for ever without ever diminishing their energy reserves.

Scientists today ponder the notion of 'perpetual motion' and conclude that it's impossible; that without sufficient energy reserves it can't be done. Energy generation, as we know it, requires fuel of one type or another to burn - so they've concluded that perpetual motion is not possible. They long ago decided that the known laws of physics preclude any possibility of the infinite energy reserves needed to make perpetual motion a reality. It seems their laws of physics are incomplete, doesn't it? BECAUSE IF DOES EXIST! It's going on all the time - they simply lack the intelligence to see it. The tiny dynamo - the atom - continues to function for ever without any need for energy renewal! This is why God refers to them as fools - Rom 1:22. An observer stepping onto planet earth for the first time and observing their theories would probably call them mindless ratbags - but we need to be as generous as God and leave the tag as 'fools.'

LINEAR ACCELERATORS

Now we know that every atom in the universe is made up of a very great number of particles. Linear accelerators in the U.S. and Europe have already identified hundreds of different particles in each atom. They are constantly discovering new ones as they collide these atoms at high speed and strip away their component parts. This process generates enormous heat flashes as the energy is released; energy that is out of all proportion to the size of the colliding particles. They have demonstrated again and again the enormous complexity of the 'simple' atom. The atom will one day prove to be the most complex mechanism known.

An interesting book that details particle discovery through the use of particle accelerators is 'The God Particle' by author Leon Lederman. Lederman confesses that his work provides more surprises than it does answers. It gives a very good idea of the nature of quantum mechanics.

So what about the earth? Considering the research already done on earth and the findings indicated by seismic investigation, why would the earth differ from the model of the atom out of which it's built? The earth and everything on it is built out of atoms. God is showing us the secrets of His creation.

Before examining some of the astounding revelations of the Bible, let's consider some of the other properties of this planet.

EARTH'S TEMPERATURE

It is known that the temperature of the earth increases with depth. The increment is around 1 deg F for every 100 feet of depth. Some of the deepest mines in the World are in South Africa. Some of these are at depths of 7,000 feet or more - 1 vertical miles. So hot is the temperature in these mines that refrigeration is installed to cool them, to enable men to work in them.

The deeper you go in the earth, the hotter it gets. It would be logical to think that at depths of tens of thousands of feet the earth's sub-strata would be molten - a whole sea of lava boiling away like a cauldron. But it's not! This is where the proper application of the known laws of physics helps us to understand. While the temperatures are above the boiling point of the rocks, the overlying pressure of the rocks ensures they remain quiesant. This principle can be observed in a pressure cooker, where water is heated in a sealed container. As the heat expands the water, the pressure stops it from boiling. Because far greater temperatures are required to make it boil, the food cooks a lot quicker. The same principle can be observed in the cooling system of an automobile. Never lift the cap of the radiator while the engine is hot. Often the temperature is above boiling point, but because of the pressurized system it won't boil. If you were to suddenly lift the radiator cap the water would instantly boil.

So it is with the super-heated rocks at depth. Because of the overlying pressures, the rocks, even though at temperatures far beyond their normal boiling point, remain in a quiesant or solid state. Gravity is what stops the earth from melt-down just a few tens of miles beneath the surface. Any interruption of gravity or any destabilizing force acting upon the earth would have devastating effects!

CORE EFFECTS

The earth's core has many functions. It's gyroscopic action stabilizes the earth in much the same way as a spinning top is stabilized by it's inertial forces. As the inertial forces diminish with slowing speed, the top destabilizes and wobbles, and eventually comes to rest. A top would sit idle forever unless some force is applied to it. It has no inherent energy resources of its own. This is not so of the earth! The earth enjoys the perpetual motion of the same type as the atoms of which it's composed and modelled. Like the atom, the earth can be destabilized by an external force acting on it. The big difference is that they are magnitudes apart in proportional forces. The atom has the strongest force known, whereas, gravity has the weakest. Proportionately, the atom requires forces magnitudes greater than the earth to destabilize it. But, like the atom, the earth can be destabilized.

The similarities don't end there! To destabilize the atom, an external force is applied that impacts it at high speed, stripping away its component parts creating an imbalance. Certain of its particles function as stabilizers. It they are disturbed then the atom becomes unstable. Even in simple terms we can understand the truth of this. Atoms are constantly being bombarded from the sun. These cosmic rays strip away electrons and replace them with others. This is evident in a tinted window pane. When the sun's rays hit the window pane they dislodge electrons causing a minor chain reaction. One electron collides with another until they pass through the glass. What emerges from the other side are electrons stripped from the tinted glass, hence the different colour of the light. This process greatly reduces the speed of light, but on emerging from the glass, it resumes its normal speed of 186,000 miles [300,000 km] per second. This shows us that even photons of light have inherent properties that are unexplainable by our present known laws of physics.

THE DYNAMO OF THE SUN

It's should surprise no one that the earth also has amazing qualities that are observable and measurable. Throughout the universe there are many astral bodies that generate heat. Our own sun is an example. While no one to date has correctly identified the mechanism that generates this heat, it should have been obvious to all long ago, that the sun generates its heat and gravity from a central core. Technically speaking, even this is not truly correct, because the sun doesn't generate heat, per se, but radiation! This radiation excites the atoms and molecules that it strikes causing them to vibrate, just like a microwave oven; and it is this vibration that converts the radiation to heat. On earth, at equatorial latitudes, the sun is very hot. Yet there are places where you can walk a few miles and experience temperature changes from 40deg C to 0deg C. In equatorial Africa there are mountains that are covered with snow even in the height of summer.

The sun is hottest at sea level. The higher the altitude and the more rarified the air, the less heat that is generated, because there are less atoms per cubic centimeter to excite. The sun's rays pass through 93 million miles of barren space, through near vacuum conditions, yet when it hits our atmosphere we experience the heat that its rays generate. This is not unique to our sun alone! There are billions and trillions of other suns or stars that function in exactly the same manner, and which have exactly the same radiation-generating capabilities.

Since the heat we experience from the sun has its origins as radiation that is transmitted as photons of light, we need only block this passage of light to prevent the generation of heat. Ordinary insulation performs this function. The surface of the earth does also. Just below ground level, where radiation cannot penetrate, the earth is cool. Underground dwellings are renowned for their constant temperatures.

As we go deeper into the earth however, temperatures begin to soar. In fact, within ten kilometers of the surface, the heat is too great to sustain life. This ten kilometers is a thin veneer in comparison to the total diameter of the earth of around 12,000 kilometers.

According to the prevailing theories of the earth, it's claimed that the earth is still undergoing a cooling process from the heat of its 'birth.' Of course, these fruitloop theorists never explain the origins of this heat in the rarified regions of space that would be at absolute zero (minus 273deg) in the absence of a heat-generating source. They not only assume the existence of heat but they also assume the existence of gravity without any generating mechanism. This remnant heat from the earth's 'birth', as they claim, is undiminished even though their upper estimates of the earth's age is now 15 billion years (that's 15,000 million years).

AND NOW THE TRUTH!

All theorists agree that there is some type of core within the earth that generates gravity. They just can't agree on what it is or how it works. They know that an electro-magnetic field is generated around the earth and they loosely link this with gravity. But gravity itself, as any type of wave form, is undedectable. All efforts to detect some type of gravity wave form or frequency emission have failed! And yet, gravity is a reality and is easily demonstrated. We no longer have to observe apples falling from trees as Isaac Newton did, in order to determine it to be a true entity. In trying to quantify the concept of gravity, they have merely substituted a mysterious field for a mysterious force acting at a distance. AND NONE OF THEM KNOW WHAT THIS MYSTERIOUS FORCE IS!

THE MYSTERY OF THE SUN

The concept of a static core explains nothing! From a logical point of view, the only thing that makes sense is for the earth to have a generating power-plant like the sun. Now there is no one on earth that would claim that the sun doesn't generate energy - because the energy it generates is obvious! The sun is a massive and violent generating power-plant magnitudes greater than our earth's generating capabilities. Although no scientist on earth has tumbled to the generating mechanism of the sun, it should be patently obvious to any reasonable thinker, that the sun has a pulsar at its center that emits microwaves to excite the gaseous cloud which envelopes it. The pulsar generates gravity as well as radiation emissions; the gravity holds its gas cloud in place, and the radiation super-heats it, generating a boiling gaseous mantle. Almost the entire mass of the sun is in its tiny nucleus - just like the atom!

Of course, the diminutive mentality of the theorists, which is fueled by their determination to theorize a substitute for a Creator God, has led them to propose some of the most outrageous and senseless theories imaginable to explain the mechanism of the sun. The most prevalent theory is that the Sun is a giant ball of hydrogen which is on fire and burning away. THEY NEVER EXPLAIN HOW THIS GREAT BONFIRE CONTINUES IN THE ABSENCE OF OXYGEN! Another prominent theory is that the sun is a giant nuclear reactor. Considering that there are billions of stars like our sun in the universe, it would be fortuitous indeed if all of these developed as controlled nuclear reactors by chance! Nuclear physicists are aware of the need to set in place many fail-safe systems to control nuclear reactors. It's an exacting science to develop controlled nuclear power without causing an explosion or meltdown. The balance of heating and cooling is critical. But, say the theorists, the sun developed its nuclear power-generating ability - by sheer chance! What outrageous Neanderthals these people are!

We've already speculated on the effects of a high-speed projectile from space impacting the earth, and its effects. It could result in the earth being turned over from its vertical rotational aspect. The forces that would be applied as the equatorial speeds were transmitted to the slower polar regions would certainly cause catastrophic landslides. But this is only part of the story. Something destabilised the force of gravity. Since the earth, like the all the stars in the sky and all the atoms that make up matter, are controlled by a central nucleus, we could conclude, even in the total absence of any visual evidence, that the earth is no different. WHY WOULD IT BE ANY DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER SUBSTANCE IN THE UNIVERSE? And since quantum physics has demonstrated again and again that every atom is a purpose-built, self-contained machine of enormous energy forces, we can conclude that the earth has a similar architectural design. The chief difference between atomic forces and gravity is that the former is exponentially greater than the latter.

The evidence in the geological record is that there has been a subterranean melt-down at some time in the past that has hurled the continental mass in all directions across the mantle of the earth. The original landmass has broken up - ALL OBSERVERS CONCEDE THIS! The evidence shows that the original continent broke into thousands of chunks and many were hurled together in high-speed collision, and like a concertina, the leading edges of these blocks thrust up mountain chains around the world. Super-heated rocks liquified and gushed to the surface in the great chasms that opened up - much of which was thrust up into the mountain ranges.

While human knowledge is limited when it comes to understanding macro mechanics in relation to the planets, we do know that magnetic lines of force are generated from the earth's core. We also know that gravity is something of the order of an electro-magnetic force even though we have no means of detecting it as a force. We know it has an electrical component because it reacts with the solar winds which only effect the polar regions. These solar winds drive particles deep into space creating the Aurora Borealis and the Aurora Australis at the north and south poles respectively. The same effect is observed in the tail of a comet which always points away from the sun. The solar winds, which are really not winds at all, but a stream of charged particles, selectively bombards the polar regions, demonstrating some form of electrical interaction.

The evidence is clear that the forces that were interrupted which resulted in the subterranean meltdown emanated from the core of the earth. Contact of the outer core (or mantle mass) with the spinning core resulted in many different configurations of increasing and decreasing forces as the polar positions were driven to high speeds and equatorial regions were slowed as the earth reeled like a drunk. The vortex of force passed completely through the landmass hurling great sections apart and sliding them across the face of the earth. Great rafts of sediments cascaded over the landmasses bulldozing everything in their paths. Even though meltdown occurred in the mantle rocks, these, being of higher densities (SG=7.0+), the crustal rocks with an average density of 3.5, remained buoyant. Outpourings of mantle rocks rose to infill many of the great cracks that opened in the landmass blocks. Landsliding surface sediments also filled many of the great chasms. Virtually everything on the face of the earth was bulldozed into heaps and buried - animals, vegetation, and even the marine life in the oceans!

When the earth finally stabilized, all life had been erased, and great molten piles of rocks had been thrust up into mountain ranges that formed at the bow-wave of surging crustal sediments and overthrusting crustal blocks. Some of these great thrust zones stretch for thousands of miles. Often we find displaced blocks of mountain ranges that have been laterally thrust out of alignment with the rest of the thrust zone, clearly showing the lateral forces that they had undergone. Once the dynamics of what has occurred is understood, the geology of the earth can be read like a book. There is no great mystery. The evidence is very clear and observable throughout the earth.

COAL DEPOSITS

As the earth began to stabilize after the initial loss of gravity and the violent gyrations caused by contact with the spinning core, the leading edges of the moving continents ground to a halt, causing the rest to concertina huge sections into mountain ranges. Landslides continued to stack sediments miles high. Whole forests were buried and carbonized. All vegetation was either burnt up or buried. The landslides swept everything before them. The coal fields of the earth were laid down as trees and vegetation was carried along in great rolling landslides of superheated sediments. The vegetation was covered and carbonized, in the absence of oxygen and formed the coal fields in exactly the areas you would expect to find them.

The incredible part about this knowledge is, that once it is understood in what directions the forces were applied, and where the vortex of force passed over the original landmass, then the energy resources of the world can be clearly identified. The theorists claim that coal deposits were laid down in peat swamps. Their theory falls apart when they have to explain their equation for the carbonizing of cellulose in such an environment. The swamp theory also falls apart when they attempt to apply it to some of the coal fields around the world. These are rarely found in locations that would have support a swamp environment! Also, a fire in a dried out swamp would produce ash NOT coal!

The lense-shape of many coal deposits show that they have been crushed under enormous pressures; pressures magnitudes greater than in a swamp environment! The fact that the coal deposits of the world are generally found in concentrated areas shows there was no random development in swamp environments over millions of years, as the theorists suggest, but the result of a single event capable of massive burial in a super-heated environment.

PETROLEUM FORMED

The theory commonly believed today on how petroleum was formed is even more outrageous! In fact, it's pathetic! THIS IS WHAT THESE CRAZY THEORISTS BELIEVE: Petroleum was formed from the bodies of sea life that die and sink to the bottom of the ocean. Their bodies are covered with sediment and they begin to decay. In the decaying process tiny droplets of oil are released. These tiny droplets of oil eventually accumulate with other droplets to form a pool. Over millions of years this oil migrates to hundreds or even thousands of metres, and then becomes entrapped under a impervious caprock which prevents further migration. This, they say, is the mechanism for the creation of oil reservoirs which often contain billions of barrels of oil! And always a mysteriously-appearing caprock ensures the entombment in an unexplained, fortuitous way – this they would have you believe!

FACTS THAT THEY CONVENIENTLY IGNORE: Oil floats on water. Any oil generated from a decaying body has a tendency to migrate upwards not downwards. There is no possibility that any oil would migrate downwards in a water-saturated environment. None whatever! It wouldn't happen with one dead fish let alone the trillions upon trillions needed to create a single commercial reservoir of petroleum. The oceans of the world have an effective predation system that rapidly consumes anything that dies. Even bones and shells are quickly ground up to form sediments by the constantly moving tides. The theorists concede that a caprock is necessary to ensure that the 'accumulated' oil doesn't migrate away. They understand that the natural tendency of oil is to float away in a watery environment, but still insist that for millions of years while a pool of oil is being generated, it continues to migrate downwards until it becomes entrapped.

Oil in a marine animals body represents only a tiny percentage of its total mass. Even allowing for all of this oil to accummulate, the total volume of animal life needed to produce a single petroleum reservoir would be hundred or even thousands of times the volume of the reservoir. Logic alone suggests that these volumes would need to accummulate within days and be sealed into a reservoir within days of their concentration. And this is true of every petroleum reservoir on earth! Even the land-based petroleum!

HOW WAS PETROLEUM FORMED?

It's obvious that petroleum doesn't form from gradual processes. Petroleum was formed globally, and at the same time by catastrophic forces capable of bulldozing marine life into heaps and burying them in a heated environment! Gradual accummulation is impossible!

All the marine life was concentrated at the leading edges of crustal blocks together with the marine sediments. These were rolled along in jumbled heaps by moving crustal mass. Much of the water was boiled off, generating THE MASSIVE SALT DOMES so often ACCOMPANY PETROLEUM DEPOSITS. Some of the present continents broke into many pieces causing massive rifts. Many of these were filled with flowing marine sediments or landslide material. River beds generally, are former crustal fractures. Every petroleum reservoir on earth was generated from the bow-wave effect of moving crustal blocks. There is no petroleum deposit on earth that was not formed in this way! Once this principle is understood, the identification of potential oil fields becomes childishly simple.

What a great shame that geologists have blinded themselves to the truth. Instead they have believed their own pathetic theories of gradual accumulation that, from virtually any location on earth, can be seen to be false once the truth is known. With the vast reserves of, as yet, undiscovered petroleum reservoirs around the world, the nations could have enjoyed a more balanced prosperity. How many wars would have been avoided if every nation had their own mineral and energy reserves, and knew how to locate them?

Instead, the House of Joseph (America and Britain predominantly) have foisted on the world their lunatic theories, which, in the case of petroleum, is supposed to be formed by microscopic droplets of oil from dead animals, that inexplicably sink to the ocean floor (even though oil has a lower density than water), is covered by sediments, and over millions of years, manages to work its way to a reservoir that conveniently has an imperious cap or seal to prevent seepage. What a fairy tale! What degenerate mind could possibly dream up such fantasy? Anyone with intellect above that of an ape should recognize the obvious flaws in such theories.

HOW DIAMONDS WERE FORMED

What about diamonds, how were they formed. Obviously, since diamonds are almost pure carbon, they must have had a carbon source. They also needed extreme pressures to crystallize.

Conventional 'wisdom' suggests that they were developed at depths of hundreds of miles in the earth where sufficient pressures and heat exist to form them. That seems a logical approach. The only problem is that they need to reach he surface if they are to be found - and many diamonds have been found. There is no known mechanism for them to migrate to the surface from these depths. Volcanoes that spew out molten lava from great depth, don't yield diamonds. And even if they did, the diamonds would graphitize with such temperatures during the long migration to the surface. Diamonds will turn to graphite at temperatures lower than magma.

The fact that so many diamonds have been found at different sites around the world makes it clear that they are the result of a definite mechanism, and one that was present with all the other necessary components and ingredients for the deposition of diamonds near the surface. A study of any diamond mine throughout the world will show that diamondiferous material extends just a few hundred metres below ground level. Beyond that the material is barren. Such evidence hardly suggests compatibility with prevailing theories.

The truth is that diamonds were formed just a few hundred metres from the surface in the jaws of colliding crustal blocks where volatile hydrocarbons floated and accummulated with other conglomerated sediments. The enormous pressures detonated the volatiles creating enormous heat. This heat and pressure remained until the pressure was released by the subsidence of the block facies. The built-up pressures were released firing them to the surface. Many diamond pipes have surface vents of molten rock, that looks as if it's been cut with an oxy-acetylene torch. The expanding gases rapidly cooled the deposit by carrying off the heat. Many diamonds do show partial graphitization though as a result of exposure to heat without pressure.

WHAT ABOUT GOLD?

It would seem reasonable to take the time to deal with some of the other minerals and precious metals. What about the noble metal - gold? Did God scatter this all over the world to make it hard to find? Was it always in minute quantities of a few grams per tonne?

The answer is no! In the original landmass, when the angels shouted for joy, God had created a beautiful world of intricate design. The pyramid shape of the earth was richly embellished. Minerals and precious metals formed a major part of the elaborate embossing of certain features. It was a work of art. No wonder the angels shouted for joy! The only indication of some of these features is the location of some of the major gold deposits. They were transported from their original location. With a little work, it would be quite feasible to find the original locations of all gold deposits. There is, however, no point in doing this. God is soon to restore it all anyway within the early part of the 21st century. In the interim period, gold will become so worthless it will be thrown into the streets (Lam 4:1).

THE NEXT GLOBAL CATASTROPHE

What the academic world has refused to believe DID happen, is going to happen AGAIN! Global upheavals will erase life from earth and only a few humans will be left. Most of those people alive today will see it in their own lifetimes! The same physical forces that destroyed the earth formerly, will again be enacted to restore the earth to its former glory. In the process, most animal life and vegetation will be destroyed. The cynics, who have refused to accept that catastrophic events have destroyed the earth in the past, will see with their own eyes the horror and devastation that now awaits them! The Almighty God is about to rub their noses in it! All their silly 'science' is going to be flung in their faces! Since they have chosen to ignore logical evidence, their demented minds will be confronted with awesome events that are beyond their comprehension!

The Bible speaks of these colossal events in very graphic terms. The problem is, most Bible students have been indoctrinated by sanctimonious claptrap and have ignored the many warnings in the Bible of coming events - and the magnitude of these events! Such people speak of 'much love' but totally refute the POWER of God. Now here the truth of the Bible!

THE BIBLE REVEALS ALL!

Most people have believed that the first 4 books of the New Testament are the gospel of Christ and the only part of the Bible relevant today. Many totally ignore the rest of the Bible. They have reduced the Gospel to a message about the person of Christ. Yet the prophets of old preached the Gospel, which means 'good news' about a coming Kingdom which would be established on earth by God in the latter days (Dan 2:44). Before Jesus' ministry began, and before any of the books of the New Testament were written, John the Baptist was preaching about the coming Kingdom of God (Matt 3:2). Jesus Christ came as the representative of God and of that coming Kingdom.

John the Baptist came in the Spirit of Elijah, and was the advance emissary of the coming ruler, Jesus Christ. John was merely a fore-type of another that will appear on the scene in the latter days. And this latter day Elijah will come in the Spirit and power of Elijah. For those who believe that this latter day Elijah has already come and gone - you are in for a rude awakening! Christ said of John the Baptist, that 'among those born of women, there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist.' In other words of all those who have ever lived, none excelled him in obedience, righteousness and sense of purpose. And his sense of responsibility never wavered till the day he died. John was no reed shaken in the wind, he was a resolute, determined man who spoke the truth without fear or favour. Herod, himself admired the man, even though some of the things that John said were offensive to him (Mark 6:20).

John the Baptist was separate from the organized religious groups prominent in Jerusalem at that time. In fact, he, like Christ, found fault with mainstream religion. John did, however, have an organized group of disciples, who assisted and believed as he did. Until the start of his ministry, he lived in the desert, far away from all mainstream Judaism.

The Bible records that John the Baptist preached this good news of the coming Kingdom of God from the Old Testament (Matt 3:1). Now notice the message of John the Baptist: Luke 3:3 "And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; as is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. EVERY VALLEY SHALL BE FILLED, and EVERY MOUNTAIN AND HILL SHALL BE BROUGHT LOW; and the CROOKED SHALL BE MADE STRAIGHT, and the ROUGH WAYS SHALL BE MADE SMOOTH; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.' "'

A quick reading of this verse seems innocuous enough. But read it again and notice that these words from Isa 40:3-5 are about baptism of repentance for the remission of sins'. Yet John the Baptist speaks about MOUNTAINS BEING LEVELLED and VALLEYS BEING FILLED, and the ROUGH WAYS BEING MADE SMOOTH. The next three chapters of Isaiah also continue the theme of these verses and refer to the resculpturing of the whole earth - OF THRESHING AND CRUSHING MOUNTAINS and REDUCING THE HILLS TO CHAFF (Isa 41:15) of RECLAIMING THE DESERTS, of CAUSING RIVERS TO FLOW ON BARREN HEIGHTS (V18), Chapters 40-42 of Isaiah speak of the coming Kingdom of God when the House of Israel will be a light to the Gentiles and the whole world (Isa 42:6-7).

This is the good news of the Kingdom of God that John the Baptist was delivering. This message in Isaiah culminates with the return of Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords: Isa 42:13- 'The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war, He shall cry, yes, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies. I have for a long time held my peace..... I will destroy and devour at once. I will MAKE WASTE MOUNTAINS AND HILLS, and DRY UP THE VEGETATION, and I will MAKE THE RIVERS ISLANDS, and I will DRY UP THE POOLS. And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; and I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, AND CROOKED THINGS STRAIGHT.'

What does it all mean? Are the mountains of the earth really going to be leveled and crushed? Is this really a part of the good news of the Kingdom of God? The Apostle Peter said that the works that are in the earth are TO BE BURNT UP (2Peter 3:10) and then went on to say that ALL THESE THINGS ARE TO BE DISSOLVED (V11) in the Day of the Lord (and the return of Christ - V10). In V11-12, he asked the question: "SEEING THAT ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE DISSOLVED, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting to the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT?"

Peter tells us that this is to occur in the Day of the Lord - at the time that Christ returns! Is everything on the earth going to be literally burnt up? Or is this 'spiritual' talk for false doctrines or something else equally obscure? Most people like to read right over these scriptures because they don't understand them. Was Peter telling us the truth in plain language? What other references can we go to, to check it out?

Turn to the book of Isa 42. In V14, God describes the return of the House of Israel from captivity: "For a long time I have kept silent. I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant. I WILL LAY WASTE THE MOUNTAINS AND HILLS, and DRY UP THEIR VEGETATION. I will TURN RIVERS INTO ISLANDS and dry up the pools. I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along familiar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them, and MAKE THE ROUGH PLACES SMOOTH. These are the things I will do, I will not forsake them." Continuing in Isa 43:2 "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

This return from captivity occurs during the Day of the LORD (IPet 3:10). Rivers will be turned into land, lakes (pools) will disappear. They will travel on smooth ground because God is going to waste the mountains and the hills. Everything will be dissolved, including all the cities, cars and industrial complexes. The memory of all the former things will pass away. The elements of the earth will melt with fervent heat - yet God says His people will walk through the fire (just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego), and they will not be burnt! This is what Peter meant when he said, "What manner of person should you be ..." Those who still cling to their rebellious ways will be turned back by the heat: Isa 42:17 "But those who trust in idols, who say to their images, 'You are our gods' WILL BE TURNED BACK IN UTTER SHAME."

God refers to the earth as His holy mountain in the book of Isaiah: Isa 11:9 "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD."

And in Daniel, the stone that destroys all the kingdoms of the world becomes a great mountain and fills the earth: Dan 2:35 'Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold [of the great image] broken to pieces together; and became like the chaff of the threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them; and the STONE that smote the image BECAME A GREAT MOUNTAIN, AND FILLED THE WHOLE EARTH.'

That perfect-sculptured stone [Christ] will fill the whole earth. What does this mean? Does it mean that the world will be like this STONE in appearance?

There are two very important considerations here:

Firstly, this STONE strikes the image on the feet and then all of the image, including the brass, silver and gold, was smashed to pieces together and AT THE SAME TIME. This is a clear indication of WHICH EMPIRES are to exist in the final subduction of the world by Jesus Christ -- who represents the 'STONE' that destroys them.

We know that anciently, all of these four kingdoms existed together. One by one they arose to achieve power consecutively. All of these kingdoms are to feature prominently in the endtime - our time! Be sure you understand this clearly. It is vital to the understanding of prophecy. In the past, these first three kingdoms were described as consecutive kingdoms in all the WCG literature with only the final part - the feet and ten toes, existing in our time. The other 3 kingdoms were considered to be past events that have nothing to do with our time.

The Bible is very clear that ALL WILL EXIST TOGETHER IN THE ENDTIME as separate kingdoms, and ALL WILL BE SMASHED TOGETHER BY CHRIST!

Jesus Christ is the chief CORNERSTONE, that is the UPPERMOST STONE ON A PYRAMIDAL SHAPE - the only shape that has a CHIEF CORNERSTONE. The Church of God have long known this fact and also that the New Jerusalem city, that will descend from heaven is pyramidal in shape.

The second point is, as Dan 2:35 tells us, this CORNERSTONE [STONE] will become a MOUNTAIN (Strong's Conc. from [6697] - implied meaning: sharp stone, compressed, with defined edges) and fill the whole earth.(Strong's Conc. [0772] taken from [0776], but meaning 'inferior')

Those who want to resist the truth of God can spiritualize this away by imagining that this refers to the spreading of God's word throughout the earth, yet the word used and translated 'MOUNTAIN' is from the root word, that emphasizes the meaning of 'COMPRESSED AND DEFINED EDGES.' God's word is surely not going to be 'compressed.' The Bible is referring to the PYRAMID-SHAPED LANDMASS or 'MOUNTAIN'.

What does this mean?

It means, quite simply, that Christ is to replace our present inferior earth or LANDMASS with a better one. What now exists will be compressed to form A SHARP-EDGED, WELL-DEFINED STRUCTURE. And that shape is to be the shape of God's universal symbol of power - THE PYRAMID. The very word 'PYRAMID' means 'FIRE IN THE MIDST OR MIDDLE.' Our God is a consuming fire! (Heb 12:29)

pyramid_earth.gif (15225 bytes)

This new shape certainly will have 'fire in the middle.' God the Father and Jesus Christ the Lamb will be right in the middle of this great mountain or pyramid, at Jerusalem, and their brightness will illuminate the whole world: Rev 21:23 "The City (New Jerusalem) does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of GOD gives it LIGHT, and the LAMB is its LAMP. The nations will walk by its light." If the continents were scattered all around the physical globe, those on the other side wouldn't get much illumination. But with Jerusalem once again at the centre of the compressed landmass - they most certainly will.

In days of old, it was said that all roads lead to Rome, but in the Millennium all roads will lead to Jerusalem from every part of the earth. The Bible tells us that Jerusalem is the center of the earth (Eze 5:5, 38:12. The New Bible Commentary Revised (p.669) renders Eze 5:5 as 'Jerusalem is the center of the world.') If you look at any map of the world today, this fact is not apparent.

No matter how you look at it, Jerusalem could not be construed to be the center of the world. But it once was! And this will become clear shortly!

So what is the Bible saying?

In the book of Job we learn that God laid the FOUNDATION of the earth (Strongs 0776 - means landmass). He marked off its dimensions, and stretched a measuring line on it - and He laid a cornerstone! Notice this scripture: Job 38:4 'Where were you (Job) when I laid the earth's FOUNDATIONS? Tell me, if you understand. WHO MARKED OFF ITS DIMENSIONS? Surely you know! Who STRETCHED A MEASURING LINE across it? ON WHAT WERE ITS FOOTING SET, or WHO LAID THE CORNERSTONE, while the morning stars sang together and ALL THE ANGELS SHOUTED FOR JOY?'

This is speaking of the start of the first creation - the world of the dinosaurs – when ALL THE ANGELS SHOUTED FOR JOY. This landmass had a CORNERSTONE - a chief CORNERSTONE that WAS LAID BY GOD HIMSELF. This original landmass also had ABSOLUTELY DEFINED AND STRAIGHT DIMENSIONS! A map of the earth today reveals nothing in the current, fragmented landmasses of the earth that could be measured with a straight measuring line. Obviously, the landmass today is not the same as it was when the angels shouted for joy.

But there is yet more in the Book of Job that poses an even greater mystery. God says that the earth takes the shape of clay imprinted under a seal: Job 38:14 'The earth takes SHAPE LIKE CLAY UNDER A SEAL; its FEATURES STAND OUT like those of a GARMENT.'

How remarkable this is! The original landmass had the distinctive features of a lump of clay imprinted under a seal - and as distinctive as those of a garment!. If you took a seal - such as the Great Seal of the United States of America - and pressed it onto a piece of clay you would see a definite imprint of great design. In the case of the Great Seal of the United States of America, it would leave a perfect imprint of a pyramid with the uppermost stone or chief cornerstone illuminated. Isn't it odd that this seal has an imprint of a pyramid on it's reverse side? And why is the uppermost stone illuminated? You could understand Egypt having the pyramid on their seal of office or on their currency, since the Great Pyramid of Cheops is in their country. But why the U.S?

Did God inspire this seal to be that of the greatest and most powerful nation in this endtime, and the greatest that has existed on the earth. Is it fortuitous that the United States of America just happens to be modern Ephraim, the ruler of the tribes of Israel? Is it also fortuitous that the Great Seal of the United States is the most well-known seal on earth.

Well the mystery becomes even more intriguing! Just what was the original shape of the landmass of the earth?

It was King David who preserved the key to this mystery. He also used the Great Seal of the house of Israel to ensure that this knowledge was preserved. Before examining David's legacy of the key of David, what evidence do we have that David knew what has happened to the original landmass of the earth? Here are some references:

Ps 18:15 'The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare.' What sort of event is this? What massive catastrophe could have exposed the deepest parts of the oceans? The very valleys of the oceans were exposed! It's difficult for the human mind to begin to comprehend such an event, but God says it happened! When the perfect vision of what exactly happened is clearly understood, you will realize the full extent of this great catastrophe that has occurred in the past!

In reading through Psalm chapter 18, you will notice that it seems to be speaking of King David. Most commentaries suggest that he is referring to his numerous battles with Saul and with the Philistines. If he were, then the description given here is an outrageous and presumptuous embellishment of his prowess as a military commander. God would never have allowed such exaggeration in His inspired Word; but neither would David, a man after God's own heart, countenance such outrageous misrepresentation of the facts. Although David's bravery and ability in battle was legendary, none of his battles even remotely paralleled the events described here. So what is the answer?

You will note that there are many quotations in the New Testament from the Book of Psalms. Most refer to Christ. But if you check back to the source of the quotation in the Book of Psalms, you will find that the description invariably refers to the writer, in most cases - David! To those who are unskilled in the knowledge of the Bible, this would appear to be misrepresentation. The Messiah Himself, quoted many of these seemingly 'out of context' verses. There are dozens of them in the N.T. Some examples are Ps 16:10, Ps 22:1, 18 (Jo 19:24), Ps 69:4 (Jo 15:25), Ps 69:9 (Jo 2:17), Ps 41:9 (Jo 13:18), Ps 35:19 (Jo 15:25), Ps 34:20 (Jo 19:36). Christ says they referred to Himself! And so they did! The Book of Psalms, as with most of the prophets, are written in parable form. And just so there is no confusion over this, God states it plainly: Ps 78:1 "O people, hear My TEACHING; listen to the words of My mouth. I will open My mouth in PARABLES, I will utter things HIDDEN from of OLD...." All these things were there all the time, and all have read them - but they never understood them, because they failed to realize that God was speaking in parables. In fact the whole of Psalm 18 is a parable - and it's about Christ! It speaks of a great battle that occurred on earth, which Christ fought.

Ps 18:3 "I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came before Him, into His ears. The EARTH TREMBLED AND QUAKED, and the FOUNDATIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS SHOOK; they trembled because He was angry. Smoke rose from His nostrils; consuming fire came from His mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under His feet. He mounted the Cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness His covering, His canopy around Him - the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of His presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded [amid hailstones and bolts of lightning (margin)]. He shot His arrows and scattered the enemies, great bolts of lightning and routed them. The VALLEYS OF THE SEA WERE EXPOSED and the FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH LAID BARE at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of the deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the DAY OF MY DISASTER, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me." Can we be sure that this is referring to Christ? Now notice the marker that God inserted for identification: V28 "You, O LORD, keep my LAMP burning; my God turns my darkness into LIGHT." And what verse does this point to? Here it is: Rev 21:23 "The [Holy] City does not need the sun or moon to shine on it for the glory of God gives it LIGHT, and the LAMB IS ITS LAMP." Obviously, David is not referring to the time when Christ was crucified, nor was he speaking of his own battles. God, at that time, did not appear with His armies, and nor did He expose the great chasms of the sea. This is speaking of a great rebellion before mankind was put on earth. At that time the earth became a chaotic mess. The state of the earth is described in Gen 1:1 when God set forth to re-create the earth. At that time it was 'tohu' and 'bohu', which in the original Hebrew describes a chaotic mess.

When Christ fought the spiritual battle to qualify for rulership of this planet and the rest of the universe, He had to die, because He had to pay the penalty for all sin throughout the entire realm that He would inherit. And just so that we know where the rebellion started, who was responsible, and what the circumstances were, God gave us a sign! When Christ was killed, a similar scenario described in Ps 18 is re-enacted: Matt 27:50 "And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He gave up His spirit. At that moment...THE EARTH SHOOK AND THE ROCKS SPLIT...saw THE EARTHQUAKE and all that had happened, they were terrified..." Luke 23:44 "It was about the sixth hour and DARKNESS CAME OVER THE WHOLE LAND until the ninth hour..."

There are many, many pointers and markers throughout these scriptures and the rest of the Psalms. But God's true servants are obliged to explain the meaning of the parables that Christ spoke while on earth, particularly where they relate to matters under discussion. Christ spoke a parable about a landowner that planted a vineyard: Matt 21:33-45 "Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a WALL around it, dug a WINEPRESS in it and built a WATCHTOWER. Then He rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit. The tenants seized his servants, they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way. Last of all, he sent his son to them. 'They will respect my son,' he said. But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance.' So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?"

"He will bring those wretches to a wretched end" they replied, "and will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time."

"Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: 'The STONE the BUILDERS REJECTED has become the capstone [CORNERSTONE], the Lord has done this, and IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES"? Therefore I tell you that the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. He WHO FALLS ON THIS STONE will be BROKEN TO PIECES, but he on WHOM IT FALLS will be CRUSHED." When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus' parables, they knew he was talking about them."

Did they really know that Christ was talking about them? And was Christ really talking about them? Christ said He spoke in parables so that they couldn't understand. Here, it seems, they did understand - or they thought they did! The truth is they didn't understand the true meaning of this parable! Christ said that He revealed things kept secret from the foundation of the world in the parables He spoke: Matt 13:35 "So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet [Ps 78:2]: 'I will open my mouth in PARABLES, I will utter things HIDDEN SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD. Then He left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to Him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field." He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the Kingdom. The weeds are the SONS of the Evil One, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are the angels. As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear."

You will notice that Christ said He spoke in PARABLES in which He uttered things HIDDEN SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD. In many of the parables, Christ is telling us what happened at the beginning of the creation of this world. It's vitally important that you understand all these things. You are to be caught up in the greatest global upheaval of all time. You will witness the destruction of all the cities on earth. When the great and final rebellion occurs, the earth will be brought to the brink of total destruction. The works of the devil will be erased from the earth, including all of his seed, and the earth will be restored to its original condition and shape. God will then re-create all the animal life: Ps 104:29 "When You hide your face, they are terrified; when You take away their breath, they die and return to dust. When You send Your Spirit, they are CREATED, and You RENEW THE FACE OF THE EARTH."

The Bible is a BOOK OF LAW. It is the LAW BOOK from which all will be judged. From cover to cover the Bible speaks of legal matters. With great frequency we see terms such as court, witnesses, judgment, justice, testimony, accused, and dozens of other such terms. CHRIST OBEYS THE LAW OF HIS FATHER, the devil does not! The whole purpose of our existence is to gather evidence against Satan the devil. Christ came to destroy the works of the devil (1Jo 3:8). Christ came to save this world, this earth, and to destroy all that the devil has done. Notice what He said in this regard: John 12:47 "As for the person who hears My words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world but to save it. There is a Judge for the one who rejects Me and does not accept My words, that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day." When the Father sits at the GREAT COURT (Dan 7:9-10) He will judge according to what Christ spoke, and condemnation will follow according to His words.

Fellow Christians, you are witnesses for the prosecution, and you are a part of the great evidence-gathering process. If need be, you are to be cannon-fodder in the final battle when Christ will return and physically save this world from total destruction. While you must now suffer many things, God will not forget you, and He will reward you for your faithful duty. We must keep our eyes focused on God. Notice what He says: Ps 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, THOUGH THE EARTH GIVE WAY and the MOUNTAINS FALL INTO THE HEART OF THE SEA, though its WATERS ROAR AND FOAM AND THE MOUNTAINS QUAKE WITH THEIR SURGING. There is a river [Eze 47:1, Rev 22:1] whose streams make glad the CITY OF GOD, the Holy Place where the MOST HIGH DWELLS. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at BREAK OF DAY [dawn]. NATIONS ARE IN UPROAR, KINGDOMS FALL; He lifts His voice, THE EARTH MELTS. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah. Come and see the works of the LORD, THE DESOLATIONS HE HAS BROUGHT ON THE EARTH. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, He burns the [chariots] with fire. "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted on earth." The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress."

Nothing will befall you that will not befall everyone else on earth. The great difference is that your future is secure in the Kingdom of God if you remain faithful to God. He will either resurrect you or bring you back from captivity and slavery. You must accept God's will and be willing to obey to the end. He will decide where you will go and what will happen to you (Rev 13:10). Be faithful! The greatest tragedy of all is that many will listen to the false prophets as they weave their spell of 'safety and deliverance' if you 'follow them.' If you follow them, you will die, but you will not be resurrected to life, but to death in the fiery furnace. You've listened to the mindless ratbags, now start listening to God! Believe the Bible!

It was to King David that God entrusted the greatest volume of information concerning the former things and the things that are to come. And it's through the seed of David and his family line, and the tribe of Levi, that this information is to be made known to the world (Zech 12:10-14). And specifically, to two men who are prophets; one from the tribe of Levi, and one from the tribe of Judah (See the article: The Two Endtime Prophets). He will not yield His glory to another (Isa 48:1, 11). Ps 78:66-72 "He beat back His enemies; He put them to lasting shame. Then He rejected the tents of Joseph, He did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; but He chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion, which He loved. He built a sanctuary like the high mountains, like the earth that He established forever. He chose David His servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep He brought him to be shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel His inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; and skilful hands he led them." The sanctuary that God built like the high mountains, will be established forever like the earth, but it is not yet on earth. When it is, David will be a shepherd over the flock (Eze 34:23). David had much to say about the state of the earth:

Ps 82:5 "They know not, neither do they understand; they walk on in darkness: ALL THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH (Strong's Conc. [0776] landmass, countries, ground, nations) ARE OUT OF COURSE!"(KJV) The words 'out of course' have special meaning. Strong's Concordance renders it from the Hebrew word 'mowt' [Strg: 4131]. This word means 'to totter, shake, slip, to be moved, to dislodge.' Yes, the continents of the earth have been moved and are out of course! They have been dislodged and have slipped across the broad surface of the earth. The Almighty God has confirmed this in writing!

Ps 96:10 'Say among the nations, The LORD REIGNS; the world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; He shall judge the peoples with equity.' Yes, God is going to stabilize the earth once more - when He reigns! He will restore it once more to its original shape and condition. Everything will be made new! Rev 21:5 "He who was seated on the throne said, "I AM MAKING EVERYTHING NEW!" Then He said, "WRITE THIS DOWN, FOR THESE WORDS ARE TRUSTWORTHY AND TRUE."

Ps 97:1, 5 'THE LORD REIGNS...THE MOUNTAINS MELT LIKE WAX before the LORD....' Here we have an exact time setting! The LORD reigns and the mountains melt like wax! Because the false prophets in the past have not understood Bible prophecy, they have endeavoured to substitute 'spiritual' meanings for words like 'mountains'. 'Mountains,' they implied, was spiritual talk for problems and worries. Presumably, the STONE that became a great MOUNTAIN [which is Christ] and filled the whole earth (Dan 2:44) represents 'problems and worries.' What disgusting blasphemers these people are! How right was Jude when he said, "Yet these men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand, and what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals - these are the very things that destroy them." (Jude 1:10).

Ps 136:1, 4-6 'Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good ....to Him who alone does great wonders ...to Him who by wisdom made the heavens ...to Him who LAID OUT THE EARTH (Strongs: 0776 landmass) ABOVE THE WATERS ...to Him who MADE THE GREAT LIGHTS ...the sun to rule by day ...the moon and the stars to rule by night..." (NKJV). Here is further clear evidence that the earth and its foundations refer to the part of the terrestrial globe that is above the oceans!

These verses describe some strange events. The depths [Heb: great ravines] of the oceans will be exposed, and the surface of the earth laid bare. We are also told that the foundations of the earth, or the landmass, are out of course and that God is going to establish the world so that it will not be moved (Strong's Conc: World [8398] means the land of the nations, the habitable parts. By extension it can mean the physical globe. That the world was a globe was not known to the earliest translators anyway). When Christ reigns the mountains will melt like wax. The reference to the world being established that it shall not be moved - gives us a clear indication that it has been moved in the past! Otherwise there would be no point in establishing it to prevent movement.

In the book of Acts, we are told that Christ is to restore all things when He returns: Acts 3:21 "He must remain in heaven UNTIL THE TIME COMES TO RESTORE EVERYTHING, as He promised long ago through His holy prophets." So Christ is to REMAIN in heaven 'UNTIL THE TIME COMES...' The time for WHAT? TO RESTORE EVERYTHING! If, as some false teachers believe, this refers to Bible knowledge, then no-one will understand the Bible until after Christ returns. Yet Christ says that all knowledge will be revealed: Luke 12:2 "There is NOTHING CONCEALED that will NOT BE DISCLOSED, or HIDDEN that will not BE MADE KNOWN." So it's not truth that Christ is to RESTORE AFTER HE COMES; this is to be done before He comes. CHRIST IS TO REPAIR OR RESTORE ALL THINGS. The overwhelming evidence of many scriptures throughout the Bible proves that God is to RESTORE THE ORIGINAL LANDMASS OF THE EARTH. The prophet David was God's instrument in recording many of these things. The Bible even speaks of a special 'key' of David. This key is the key to the door of prophecy, the open door to the understanding of all things: Rev 4:1 "After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, and I will show you WHAT MUST TAKE PLACE AFTER THIS." In Rev 3:7-8 this KEY OF DAVID, which Christ has, is linked to a door in heaven, from which all UNDERSTANDING OF PROPHECY must emanate! And this knowledge will only be given to those of the southern kingdom of Judah - NOT the northern kingdom of Ephraim and the 10 tribes! Only the tribe of Judah will be authorised to teach this knowledge, and more particularly, the clans of the House of DAVID AND the clans of the House of LEVI (Zech 12:10-14). Notice Rev 3:7-9 "To the Church in Philadelphia write: "These are the words of Him who is holy and true, who holds the KEY OF DAVID. What He opens, no-one can shut; and what He shuts no-one can open." This speaks of Christ, and only Christ can remove the seals of prophecy (Rev 5:3-5). Continuing: "I know that you have little strength, yet you have not denied My name (Christ's name). I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, WHO CLAIM THEY ARE JEWS THOUGH THEY ARE NOT, BUT ARE LIARS - I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you." Only TRUE Jews will be sought out to explain the truth of God when the coming 'hell on earth' arises! (Zech 8:23).

THE KEY OF DAVID

The Great Seal of the house of David was the star or seal of David. By the 3rd century AD Jewish artisans were still using the design but were calling it the 'Seal of Solomon' (See The Bible Almanac by Packer, Tenny, White - page 501). It was most common to find an imprint of the Seal of David on high grade Jewish pottery even more than a thousand years after David. It's the design of David's Seal that has been preserved for our time, and while it is called the Star of David, it is indeed the Great Seal of his Royal House of David. It's most unfortunate that it's called a star, because it's not a star at all! In reality it's two interwoven pyramids surrounded by a circle. One of the pyramids is upside down. This reflects the current condition of the earth, which is currently upside down.

What this seal is showing is that the earth as it was created when the angels shouted for joy was in the shape of a pyramid embossed on the face of the earth. The continents at that time were a single landmass. God has now revealed exactly what has happened to the earth - why it became chaotic and why all the foundations are out of course.

JERUSALEM - THE CENTER OF THE EARTH

Jerusalem is to be the centre of the earth once more. If you move all the scattered landmasses of the earth back towards Jerusalem, you will end up with an inverse pyramidal shape. Go ahead, trace out the major landmasses of the earth and make cutouts. Then move them all towards Jerusalem and see what general shape you get! Bear in mind that all the landmasses have suffered distortions, but you will see that the geometric shape that results, is unmistakably a triangle or pyramid shape.

As a matter of interest to all true Bible students, God has a signet ring on His finger - the signet is a pyramid! The pyramid shape is a symbol of God's power and authority, it is also a symbol of His Son - the chief CORNERSTONE. Even the New Jerusalem will be pyramidal in shape and the uppermost block or cornerstone will represent Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

God has blinded the wise of this world so that they could never figure out the mystery of planet earth's geological history. In their blindness and madness they have developed all sorts of theories to account for what they correctly recognize as continental displacement.

The latest theory is the 'tectonic plate' theory where they have assumed that convection currents of molten or plastic magma facilitate continental movement as an on-going process. While still active in 'scientific' circles, the greatest setback for the theory is that in 25 years of monitoring what they call active 'rifts' they have never succeeded in measuring any movement. The theory demands movement in the order of 3 to 5 centimetres per year to comply with their estimates of time and the distances that the continents have travelled.

Both the French and the U.S. have had satellites equipped with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) active in space for many, many years, that are capable of measuring as little as a centimetre of movement with great accuracy. They have never been able to detect any lateral movement! And they never will! At least, not until the Day of the LORD and the restoration of the earth!

On the authority of Almighty God, the writer issues a challenge to all earth scientists to provide evidence, that will stand up to scientific scrutiny, of their claimed 3-5 cm of continental movement per year. IF THEY CAN PROVIDE THE EVIDENCE, THEN THE WRITER WILL PROCLAIM IT IN A MAJOR NEWSPAPER ON EVERY CONTINENT ON EARTH, TOGETHER WITH A PERSONAL RETRACTION FOR EXPRESSING DOUBTS ABOUT THEIR INTEGRITY. Again, on the authority of Almighty God, they cannot, and will not, ever do it!!!

Most of these foolish people believe it's already been done. They speak about it as fact. They assume that the results of all the projects set up to measure earth's crustal movement, have been published. There have been a couple of phoney reports that purported to prove crustal movement, but these were discredited the moment they were published. One involved a GPS measurement across the entire width of the North American continent, but the 'sage' that wrote this paper forgot to allow for the satellite's orbit correction which is effected by sun flare activity, time of day, and a number of other factors. Astute astro-physicists nailed him the moment he released the paper! We heard nothing more from the fool that wrote the paper!

The cause of the continental displacement that is evident today happened millennia ago, before Adam and Eve were created. Yes, you did read that right! The word is 'millennia' or thousands of years, not millions of years! This same event that resulted in the destruction of the original landmass is what destroyed the world of the Dinosaurs. This was the world that Lucifer ruled over. It was the world that caused great rejoicing in heaven when the angels shouted for joy when it was created. (Job 38:7).

The Bible doesn't tell us much about this rebellion. However, it does say this:

Isa 14:12-14 'How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit upon the MOUNT of the congregation in THE SIDES OF THE NORTH: I will ascend above the HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS; I will be like the Most High.' (KJV).

This describes the fall of Lucifer who became the devil. He wanted to be equal with God and exalt himself above all the heavenly host. To do this he decided to sit upon the Holy Mountain (the mount of the congregation). This mountain extended above the clouds, so obviously it was on earth! The earth's landmass, at that time, was a pyramid shape. The reference to 'the sides of the north' refers to the two sides that formed the apex. As with all Bible references, we don't have to guess what it means, because the Bible always explains. Using references as pointers we turn to Ps 48:1-2 "Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain. Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion ON THE SIDES OF THE NORTH, the CITY OF THE GREAT KING." Here God clearly tells us that Mount Zion is the mountain in the sides of the north and that it is a city of the Great King! Notice also the words 'beautiful in elevation.'

Obviously the height or elevation of this Holy Mountain was a feature of its beauty. Isa 14 says it rose above the clouds! Also notice the words 'joy of the whole earth.' This scripture is referring to the Mount Zion in Jerusalem - on earth! This is the SACRED AND HOLY MOUNTAIN OF THE GREAT KING! Today that mountain has been all but destroyed. No longer does it extend above the clouds. Just the merest trace of its apex exists today as a remnant of its former glory. Christ mourned the loss of this glorious Mountain. It had very great significance to Him. It's on this former Mountain that Lucifer wanted to set his throne!

Today, Omar's mosque, or the Dome of the Rock as it's usually called, covers this Mountain remnant. This is all about to change! Very soon now, two prophets will appear in Jerusalem and will set about to build the Temple of God. God has given us an insight into the duties of these two men by using former servants as foretypes of them. One of these foretypes was Zerubbabel. It is his duty to bring forth the capstone [CORNERSTONE] - the very apex of Mount Zion! It is his job to prepare the foundation for the Temple, and he will complete this foundation! Zech 4:6-10 "So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel, 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty. "What are you, O MIGHTY MOUNTAIN? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the CAPSTONE to shouts of 'God bless it! God bless it!" Then the word of the LORD came to me: "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the FOUNDATION of this Temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you. Who despises the day of small things? Men will rejoice when they see the plumb-line in the hand of Zerubbabel." Other articles cover this prophecy in greater detail, but briefly it's about the clearing of the Holy Mountain in Jerusalem in preparation for the building of the third Temple. All the refuse must be removed, and particularly the building that stands over the CORNERSTONE of Mount Zion. How will this be done? God tells us 'Not by [human] might, nor by [human] power, but by My SPIRIT.' The Hebrew word used here for 'spirit' is not definitive; but in the context of what is said, would indicate that God will send a mighty spirit being to complete this task.

There will be some who won't rejoice when this happens. They will consider the small hill of rock that is exposed to be of no consequence. God prefaces this great event with 'Who despises the day of small things?' Others, who love God, will rejoice! That blessed capstone represents the Messiah, Jesus Christ! He represents the illuminated cornerstone, the uppermost stone of the pyramidal City of God. The capstone of Mount Zion, commonly called Mount Moriah, will be a constant reminder forever of the great rebellion that lead to the destruction of the earth. It will be afforded a place of honour forever in the Temple of Almighty God - finally! Before this happens another prophetic event occurs. The second beast of Rev 13 does exactly what Satan tried to do millennia before; he sits in the Holy place and claims to be God. This prophecy is extensively covered in other articles.

There are strong indications that God's heavenly throne today is not far away. What we see in the heavens, strictly speaking, is not truly representative of what exists there. When Christ returns, the heavens are to part like a curtain - just like the great veil of the tabernacle (Ps 18:9). There is already a new heavens designed and ready - its just that we cannot yet see it.

King David prophesied of the time when Christ returns and the heavens are parted. These verses are both history and prophecy: Ps 18:7 "The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because He was angry. Smoke rose from His nostrils; consuming fire came from His mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under His feet." V12 "Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot His arrows and scattered the enemies; great bolts of lightning and routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at Your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from Your nostrils."

This is a prophecy for the endtime, when Christ will give invincibility to David's descendants. Notice V50 "He gives the king great victories; He shows unfailing kindness to His anointed, to David and his descendants for ever." The king referred to here is the king who will sit on David's throne in Jerusalem as the caretaker king (Zech 6:11-15) and he will be a father to those in Jerusalem and Judah (Isa 22:21). Those of the clans of David who repent and turn to God will become an invincible force: Zech 12:2 "I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move her will injure themselves." V6 "On that day I will make the LEADERS of Judah like a fire-pot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume right and left all the surrounding peoples, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place."

David also foretold this: Ps 18:43 "You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations; people I did not know are subject to me; foreigners cringe before me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds." It will be the clans of David that will make up this mighty force (Zech 12:10-14). All of this occurs when God once again 'exposes the valleys of the seas and the foundations of the earth are laid bare' - Ps 18:15.

Most of those in the Churches of God have, in the past, recognized that certain major structural changes are to be made to the earth in the region of Jerusalem. In the book of Zechariah, we learn of some major site works that will occur at Christ's return. The Mount of Olives is to split in two with half of the mountain moving north and the other moving south. This will form a great plain or plateau over a wide area. The area of the temple mount, Mt Moriah, will then be lifted up, or elevated, to form a great plateau (Zech 14:4, 10.)

Following Lucifer's original rebellion, a mighty battle ensued. Christ testified to seeing Lucifer falling like lightning from heaven (Luke 10:18). What occurred after Satan's initial rebellion was a battle that the human mind could not begin to comprehend. What forces were unleashed? What awesome weaponry was used? Nothing in the annals of human experience could begin to understand it. AND IT'S SOON TO HAPPEN AGAIN! The world is soon to see the most awesome display of supernatural power that will literally leave people mindless with fear. There will be no natural explanation for it. Rev 12:7 "And there was WAR IN HEAVEN. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was HURLED DOWN - that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was HURLED TO EARTH, and his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the KINGDOM of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them day and night, has been hurled down. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death." This event occurs just a few years before the Great Tribulation, and most will see it in their own lifetime!
