Why Does The Bible Begin With A Description of A Flat Earth?

Claudine asks, “Is the Earth flat, with a domed firmament, as told in the Bible in Genesis?

Oh my Holy Spirit! Claudine has written several times before, asking about her departed pet ferrets. She is always pleased with Your answers. Now, she asks about the opening chapters of the Christian Bible, which long predates the beginning of Christianity but which reveals the words of the Old Testament Prophets explaining the creation of Heaven and Earth by God. In Genesis, the Earth is described as a flat disc with a firmament or sky/Heaven above. Science was not considered in Biblical terms, so that explanation seems to conflict with the discoveries of Science, once we learned that Earth is a planet among others; a round ball, floating in that star-studded firmament.

I doubt that Claudine is a member of the Flat Earth Society, which did exist once upon a time. Would You care to answer her question about whether the Earth is flat, as the Bible states?

“Oh My God, Linda Layli! You wondered what I would say, didn’t you? Do you think that I was going to assure her that “If it is in the Bible, then it is guaranteed to be true!” Oh My God, No! That’s not always the case with any of these Revelations given to a collection of Holy Revelators throughout the ages. Science is a Great Revelation, itself, and usually is much more accurate than the Works and Impressions of Someone who is suffering from Jet Lag of sorts.”

A jet lag? What are You talking about?

One of Our big difficulties in explaining anything to any human being is that We don’t have any idea of where they are on the spectrum of knowledge and understanding of their own environment. Often, We don’t know exactly what their environment really consists of; because they are the ones who reach up and locate Our Mentalities, which are “somewhere in the Firmament above them.” We don’t have a clue about their environment until it becomes evident to Us when We can get Ourselves closer to them and see what We can learn. These are very different dimensions that we both operate from. Once contact is established, We find out as much as We can, but We never know what We have left out and how do We tell a small Being what their larger environment consists of? If We even know at that point? All-Knowingness is relative; or did you even know that?”

It sure makes sense to me.

“When you were reading the computer’s presentation of the Flat Earth references, there was an illustration that appeared to show the Land surrounded within a droplet of water. It showed a layer of water above the air, with windows provided to let the rain come through. The sea filled the bottom of the bubble and the land was depicted in between that and the sky. All of these descriptions could be probable, and your part of space might eventually prove to be encased within a bubble. Not very much is known about the space which surrounds and/or makes up your Universe. So, you don’t have the last word on the subject either. If I tried to tell you what I know, that would add to the confusion. I think I had better stop talking right now!”

TMI!I agree! This is one proof of the difference between the Material and the Spiritual Dimensions. Even when we use analogies to illustrate a point, like “Descended from Heaven to Earth!” we imply sameness, as if there is any dimensional connection. Upstairs/Downstairs…. implies being contained in the same house. Beginning and End. That’s also a product of physicality, which is handy for a physically-encapsulated brain; but possibly, not at all accurate. Our Holy Books come to us through dictated sound into those physical brains, don’t they?

“Y.E.S! That says it all! Let’s not worry about these locational questions and please don’t ask Me where the Garden of Eden was!”
