Bible Believers' Newsletter 1176
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you have joined us for fellowship around God's unchanging Word and extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers.
I believe you will find our main article both interesting and enjoyable. We type our fifty-eight year pilgrimage as Christ's Wife following the close of the Laodicean Church Age and His intercession in the office Son of God with Joshua's long march. We each found the necessity for Supernatural Light in the evening time. This is a time of correction, restoration to the apostolic faith and the scriptural understanding of cosmography through revelation of the "mystery of God" which is Christ Jesus. His second Coming was not the Man whom the denominations seek, but Light on the Word. Like Joshua we will speak the Word in the manifestation of the Sons of God, and what we speak God will do because as Sons and Daughters of God we are one with the Word asking for what we are.
Several items of current news describe political plans conceived long ago and eagerly anticipated from around the close of the Church Ages. They are discussed at length in our teaching sermons; now they are unfolding. The CO² climate change hoax and the COVID plandemic are fully exposed for the lies that they are, demonstrating that today's leaders are as corrupt as those in the days of Noah and Lot. Brethren please ensure that at all times you have at least 100KB of free space in your inbox. Last week we unsubscribed four names whose Newsletters were repeatedly "bounced".
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
The Western Economic System is coming to an End
October 19, 2021 — Producing is no longer enough to live on in the West, while China has become the "workshop of the world." Only those with capital make money, and lots of it. The system is about to collapse. Can the big capitalists still save their fortune together? . . .
It is in this context that the president of the Davos Forum, Klaus Schwab, published Covid-19: The Great Reset. It is not a programme, but an analysis of the situation and a forecast of possible developments. This book was written for the members of the Forum and gives an idea of their lamentable intellectual level . . . Schwab prepares his audience for an Orwellian society. He envisages anything and everything up to the death of 40% of the world's population by Covid-19. He proposes nothing concrete and does not seem to prefer any option. We just understand that he and his audience will not decide anything, but they are willing to accept anything to keep their privileges . . .
This is why Russia and China are slowly building their world, with no hope of integrating the West, which they see as a wounded predator. They do not want to confront it, but to reassure it, to give it palliative care and to accompany it without forcing it to commit suicide. Full story: voltairenet.org
Putin warns of League of Nations Revival: What are the Implications?
October 24, 2021 — Faced with increasing pressure to dissolve the five member UN Security Council, President Putin warned on October 21:
"If we remove the veto right of the permanent members, the UN would die the very same day—it would turn into the League of Nations. It would simply become a discussion platform." As walls separating east and west along Manichean Cold War lines of "democratic/free" vs "authoritarian/enslaved" are quickly being erected before our eyes, it is worth pondering not only the deeper implication of the Russian president's message but also those healthier pathways out of the coming storm before it is too late . . .

Russia prepares the Curtain Call
October 26, 2021 — China and North Korea have reportedly launched hypersonic missiles in quick succession. China denies it, but North Korea proclaims it loud and clear. US experts, US parliamentarians and US generals are terrified because their country cannot master this technology, which makes them vulnerable. This type of missile is based on Soviet technology. President Vladimir Putin announced before the Federal Assembly in 2019 that Russia was on the verge of mastering these missiles with atomic warheads, capable of striking anywhere on Earth without being intercepted. Since it seems impossible that China and even more so North Korea have suddenly reached this technical level, experts unanimously consider that Russia has given them a version of its own weapon. This technology transfer would have taken place before the announcement of the Australia/UK/USA Alliance (AUKUS). It undermines Washington's efforts to confront Beijing and Pyongyang. The West has not only suffered a terrible defeat in Syria that forces them to accept a new world order, their "missile shield" is powerless, and their armies are now totally out of date.

The Political Power of Facebook
October 12, 2021 — In the global imagination, Facebook (i.e. DARPA, CIA, Information Awareness Office, NSA), would be a responsible social network that allows everyone to connect confidentially while censoring messages contrary to local laws. In practice, it is quite different. Facebook collects information about you for the NSA, censors your opinions and mints its own currency. In a few months, this company has become one of the most influential players in world politics. As of January 1st, 2021, it had 2.85 billion monthly active users and 1.88 billion daily active users worldwide. Full story: voltairenet.org
The Covid-19 Timeline. No Evidence of a 'Pandemic'
October 20, 2021 — The Worldwide population outside China is of the order of 6.4 billion. On January 30, 2020 outside China there were: 83 cases in 18 countries, and only 7 of them had no history of travel in China. (See WHO, January 30, 2020).
On January 29, 2020, the day preceding the launching of the PHEI (recorded by the WHO), there were 5 cases in the US, 3 in Canada, 4 in France, 4 in Germany. There was no "scientific basis" to justify the launching of a worldwide public health emergency.
On February 20, 57.9 % of the Worldwide Covid-19 "confirmed cases" were from the Diamond Princess . . . Without the Diamond Princess data, the so-called confirmed cases worldwide outside China on February 20 2020 were of the order of 452, out of a population of 6.4 billion.
January 20, 2021. The WHO confirms that the Covid-19 PCR Test is flawed. This implies is that the estimates of Covid-19 cases are totally invalid.
January 2021 (Onwards): Rising trend in vaccine related deaths and adverse events. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: The vaccine is more dangerous than COVID-19: Dr. Peter McCullough . . . "The CDC and FDA are running the program. They are NOT the people who typically run vaccine programs! The drug companies run vaccine programs. So when Pfizer, Moderna, J&J ran their randomized trials, we didn't have any problems! They had good safety oversight! They had data safety monitoring boards. They did okay! . . . "But the drug companies are now just the suppliers of the vaccine! Our government agencies are now just running the program. There's no external advisory committee! There's no data safety monitoring board! There's no human ethics committee! NO ONE IS WATCHING OUT FOR THIS!"
"And so, the CDC and FDA pretty clearly have their marching orders. Execute this program. that the vaccine is safe and effective. They're giving NO REPORTS to Americans. No safety reports. We needed those once a month. They haven't told doctors which is the best vaccine; which is the safest vaccine. They haven't told us what groups are to watch out for. How to we mitigate risks. Maybe there are drug interactions. Maybe it's people with prior blood clotting problems or diabetes." (globalresearch.ca).

Chlorine Dioxide is a 100% effective Cure for Covid
October, 2021 — The clinical study showed that chlorine dioxide is effective in patients treated with oral ClO², and that its use in the COVID-19 plandemic becomes and positions itself as a great hope for control of the plandemic, based on the scientific foundations revealed in previous research. We are looking at a solution that can end the plandemic, now scientifically proven: CDS saves lives! Full story: stopworldcontrol.com

Worldwide, Doctors warn for the Vaccines
June 19, 2021 — Medical doctors all over the world are issuing a severe warning concerning the experimental covid vaccines. There is NO medical pandemic, this is no emergency situation. The PCR test is absolutely unable to diagnose disease and is fraudulently deployed.
Masks and social distancing, lockdowns and vaccines are not necessary. The danger is the fraudulent vaccines which do not satisfy the definition of a vaccine. These inoclations are sterilizing women and girls, and unborn children and are not tested, safe, or effective. Full story: rumble.com
Comment: Yes and what a coincidence it will be when they create infertility in a whole generation of people who can longer procreate due to spike proteins attaching to sperm cells and rendering them ineffective, or antibodies to the spike protein attacking the placenta and causing miscarriage. And of course it's also a coincidence that all those damaged either in the short or long term by these shots will be on lifelong medications to 'manage' their symptoms and these medicines just happen to be sold by the same companies that made the shots and will provide them with an abundance of chronically ill people to profit from. Purely coincidental of course!
Take the COVID Vax, you can never achieve Full Immunity Again
October 24, 2021 — The British government has spilled the beans about that fact that once you get "vaccinated" for coronavirus, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity. In its Week 42 "COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report," the UK Health Security Agency admitted on page 23 that "N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who acquire infection following two doses of vaccination." It goes on to explain that this antibody drop is basically permanent.
"What's this mean? Several things, all bad," writes Alex Berenson. "We know the vaccines do not stop infection or transmission of the virus (in fact, the report shows elsewhere that vaccinated adults are now being infected at much HIGHER rates than the unvaccinated)." "What the British are saying is they are now finding the vaccine interferes with your body's innate ability after infection to produce antibodies against not just the spike protein but other pieces of the virus. Specifically, vaccinated people don't seem to be producing antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein, the shell of the virus, which are a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people."

Comment: White House to "quickly" vaccinate 28 million children age 5-11 as deaths and injuries continue to increase among 12 to 19-year-olds who received a COVID-19 shot . . . There is actually no data supporting the claim that the Pfizer COVID-19 shot is "safe and effective" for children, and plenty of data showing that it is harmful, causing severe reactions such as death and heart disease . . . Big Pharma in corporate America is running this country's medical system, and the decisions they are making regarding COVID-19 "vaccines" have everything to do with their "bottom line" in profits and future control of endless "booster shots," and nothing to do with public health . . .

Without admitting it, we are already Converted to Transhumanism
October 5, 2021 — The world is changing very fast. During the Covid epidemic, money has been concentrated in a few hands. The new oligarchs are transhumanists. Without realizing it, we have already accepted their ideology and are beginning to put it into practice. Western doctors have given up trying to cure this disease and it seems obvious to us to bet everything on messenger RNA. It does not matter that this strategy is fatal. Henceforth, this is how we think . . .
As always in periods of change in political systems, the social class that aspires to power imposes its point of view. In this case, transhumanism. The idea that scientific progress will enable a transformation of human biology to the point of overcoming death. Almost all of the world’s fifty largest fortunes seem to subscribe to this fantasy. For them, technology will replace many people in the same way that science has replaced superstition.
In order to impose their new Doxa, these very large fortunes are starting to control what we think and to force us to act according to this new ideology. The most recent phenomenon is precisely our reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic. Historically, in all previous epidemics without exception, doctors sought to cure the sick. That was the old world. In the new transhumanist world, no one is to be cured; all are to be protected with a new technology, messenger RNA. Most developed states forbid their doctors to treat their patients and their pharmacists to sell drugs that might help them (hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, etc.) . . . To understand them, all you need is a calculator: the states that went all in on messenger RNA had 20 to 25 times more deaths per million population than those that allowed care by doctors . . .

The Last COP-Out
27 October 2021 — For 26 futile years, the net-zero maniacs have wasted fuel, energy and taxpayer's money to bite the hands that provide their food, energy, welfare and public sector jobs.
Led by EU and AUKUS dreamers, they destroy reliable energy from coal, oil, nuclear, gas and hydro while forcing us to subsidize net-negative dreams like solar, wind, wave-power, CCUS, hot rocks, pumped hydro and hydrogen. All such speculative ventures should be funded by speculators.
COP-Out-26 illustrates to the realists of China, Russia, India and Brazil that the West has lost its marbles and is in terminal decline. For Scott Morrison to surrender Australia to these green wolves betrays an army of miners, farmers, truckies and workers in primary, secondary and tertiary industries that support him and his Canberra pack. The fakery of COP-Out-26 is well illustrated by the provision of diesel generators to recharge the batteries of 26 electric cars provided for show in Glasgow. But that's OK "because the diesels are run on recycled chip fat" . . . Full story: saltbushclub.com
Comment: I encouraged PM Scott Morrison to read pages 69 -75 of "Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory" by Joe Olson en route to Glasgow. Science by scientists speaking Truth prove CO² cannot cause global warming.
I realize we're onto another subject: just a few more words. There has always been tension between the Throne and the Altar, but now Britain's monarchy needs Rome's support through the Holy Alliance to overcome the international bankers and preserve her sovereignty over "former" colonies. While Rome needs Britain so she may call on (American) force of arms to ensure her authority of command.
Now let's return to our subject of world depopulation and slavery. In 1972, the Club of Rome published "The Limits to Growth" based upon false computer data, to promote the limitation of population growth and human development.
The personnel of the Population Council was strongly represented among "outside consultants" employed by the architects of "Global 2000" and "Global Future," as was the Club of Rome and its US Association.
A 1969 UN policy paper on world population claimed that the "population crisis" was as important as peace itself. And a US Academy of Sciences report, "Resources and Man," concluded that a world population of 10 billion "is close to (if not above) the maximum that an INTENSELY MANAGED world might hope to support with some degree of comfort and individual choice."
World population in 1968 was 3-4 billion, and projected to reach 7.5 billion by 2000 (UN and US State Department figures). By 1980 that projection for 2000 had diminished to 5.4 billion. The fact is the growth rate in most countries of the world is now below replacement levels, and it will continue to fall unless there is a complete reversal of the economic, monetary and "ethnic cleansing" policies.
In 1967 the Hudson Institute published "Report from Iron Mountain," a similar list of fears.
In 1976, the Rockefeller Foundation organized a meeting of the thirteen largest environmental institutions which included the Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Planned Parenthood, the Population Council and the Club of Rome. Its Chairman was Project Director (and one-time minister) Gerald Barney. He issued a report called "Unfinished Agenda" which recommended:
- American population reduction. (If I recall correctly, the program calls for a maximum of about 75 millions).
- An end to all high technology, fertilizer and irrigation-intensive farming, as well as pest-control programs, in the US.
- The elimination of all nuclear power.
- No further expansion of US electricity grids.
- Curtailing of cancer-care research in favor of attacking the products of industry as carcinogens, (thus closing-down industrial development and retarding economic growth).
The Club of Rome 1974 report titled, "Mankind at the Turning Point" says, "It would seem that humans need a common motivation . . . either a real one or else one invented for the purpose . . . In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
Several themes developed from the Club of Rome became the centre of social and political trends since 1960. Understanding how climate science has been distorted and perverted since then can only be considered in that context. Chief among these was the new paradigm of environmentalism. It is not a coincidence that Paul Ehrlich, leading scientists involved with the Club and author of the book The Population Bomb was creator of Earth Day. A major part of the challenge people faced who questioned the hypothesis that humans were causing global warming was the charge that they didn't care about the environment, the children and the future. Occupation of the moral high ground inhibited any who dared question. This worked against the fundamental function of scientists to be skeptics. In a complete reversal of normality those who did were labeled skeptics demonstrating how little most understand science and the scientific method. Nothing has changed; many such fears were raised by H.G. Welles in the 20th century.
Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, Mankind at the Turning Point: The Second Report to The Club of Rome (1974).
A simple definition of science is the ability to predict. Every prediction they made has been completely wrong. Most incorrect are the population predictions followed by rate of reduction of available resources. This is very important to the climate issue because the IPCC temperature scenarios for the future are based on the assumption that population predictions are accurate and the rate of consumption of fossil fuels will increase in parallel. Population, or at least overpopulation, is central to arguments of environmentalism and the Club says that we have to stop growth, especially growth engendered by fossil fuels. We need a new world order. One member of the Club with the contacts and organizational abilities to tackle such an incredible objective was Maurice Strong. In 1990 he said,
"What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? . . . In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring this about?"
He told Maclean's magazine in 1976 that he was "a socialist in ideology, a capitalist in methodology." Presumably this justifies the duplicity in a socialist making a great deal of money as an industrialist. He also warned, ". . . if we don't heed his environmentalist warnings, the Earth will collapse into chaos." The challenge is converting the idea to a reality. How do you shut down industrialized nations? An analogy helps understand how Strong and a few like-minded people did it.
You need two components to carry out your plan. One is a scientific agency; the other is a global political agency that can bypass national governments. Strong's experience told him the United Nations (UN) was his vehicle. Elaine Dewar wrote about Strong in her book "Cloak of Green" and concluded that he liked the UN because, "He could raise his own money from whomever he liked, appoint anyone he wanted, and control the agenda." The challenge was twofold. Advance the political agenda and provide the scientific evidence to provide legitimacy. Organization of, and appointment as, first Secretary General of the United Nations Environmental Program established in 1972 provided the political platform. Out of that agency and in conjunction with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was formed to provide and advance the scientific evidence.
You see, our politicians know all about the scam and have spent untold billions of taxpayer funds and borrowings to bring their country under Lucifer's one world government.

It shall be Light in the Evening Time
In Matthew 24:27-29 we read, "Immediately after 2,000 years of Roman Tribulation through seven Church Ages the S_O_N-Light was darkened by manmade guesswork, thus the organized church cannot reflect His Light and denominational ministers fell from heaven, and the powers of the heavens were shaken. And as the Spiritual Lightning came out of Jerusalem in the east, and shone even to the west; so shall the unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man be. For wherever the carcass or fresh meat of 'the present Truth' is, there God's elect eagles will be gathered together, flying higher, seeing clearer and further into the future than denominational chickens scratching in lectionary manure that fed the departed Church Age saints. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 24:3, 37, 39; 16:27; Revelation 1:7). And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet (Isaiah 27:13), and they shall gather together His elect Israelites to the Land of the Covenant from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other" (I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 17:1).
We commence our subject by quoting from Brother Branham's sermon, "I have heard but Now I See, "Joshua was in an hour of crisis, when the armies of the Amorites were routed, and the sun was going down. Joshua was a prophet, and he knew that if them armies ever had a chance to unite again and come against him, he would lose more man, so in that hour of crisis when something had to be done . . . There's only one thing, if he could keep them running, he'd route them, every one, down. But there wasn't enough light to do it, so Joshua stood, raised his hands, he said, "Sun, stand still! And moon, hang over Ajalon till I get through with this battle." And the sun stood still. They heard Joshua speak, and then they seen God (with their own eyes) in action. True!
See, of course, it was a paradox to see something that seems to be impossible, yet it's true. But, "The sun stood still," says the Bible. I don't know what you people think, that thinks the world was run, now; but, anyhow, "the sun stood still." Perhaps Joshua never had tried to figure out how he was going to do it, how God was going to do it, the only thing that he said was, "Sun stand still!" He said it, perhaps not knowing what he was saying, because it was God that give it to him, and He worked.
Same thing in Mark 11:23, "If you say to this mountain 'be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you said will come to pass, you can have what you said." But you can't stand there fumble in your mind and say it, you've got to be inspired to say it. Amen!
Excuse the expression; but that day, setting there in that woods (and God's my Judge, and I could fall dead on this pulpit), when that Scripture had stumped me all my life . . . setting there that morning in the woods, and I was thinking on that, and that Voice spoke to me, He said, "That Scripture is like all Scriptures, It's true".
And I thought, "Well, how could it be?"
And He said, "Speak, and it will be that way. Don't doubt It".
And I was talking to Somebody, setting way out in the woods. No squirrels, been there for three days, there's no squirrels there. And I was setting in a sycamore thicket. Squirrels don't even come . . . anyone that hunt squirrels, know they're not in sycamore. And I had been setting there; and wind blowing real hard, about ten o'clock in the morning, and I was thinking again.
And It said, "You're hunting, and you need squirrels just the same as Abraham needed a ram".
I thought, "That's always told me the Truth, but this sounds funny." And I got up from where I was setting, looked all around, "Where is that Person that was talking to me?" Nothing; wind just blowing real hard. And I thought, "Could I have fell asleep and dreamed that? No, I wasn't asleep. I was setting up against the tree there, watching, supposed to pick up Brother Woods and Brother Sothmann back there, just in a little bit, around ten o'clock in the morning. Farmers all out there working, gathering their corn."
And I heard It again, say, "You are hunting, and you need game. How many do you need?"
And I thought, "Now, I don't want to overdo this, I'm just going to ask for three, three squirrels. I want young, three red squirrels. I want them."
He said, "Then speak about it".
And I said, "I am going to get three young red squirrels."
He said, "Which a-way will they come?"
"Well," I thought, "I've went this far, there's Something talking to me here." Just the same as you hear me talking. And God in Heaven, with this Bible over my heart, knows that that's true. And I picked out a ridiculous place, an old dry limb hanging out of there (about fifty yards, where my rifle was shot in).
I said, "The first one will be right there," and there he was.
I rubbed my eyes and looked back (I turned my head), and I thought, "I don't want to shoot a vision." So I looked around again and there set the squirrel. I throwed a shell up in my gun, aimed up, and I could see his black eye, young red squirrel. I thought, "Maybe I'm sleeping, I'll wake up in a few minutes. See, I'm dreaming about this." Well, I leveled down, shot the squirrel and it dropped off the limb. I thought, "Well, I don't know." I thought, "Well, should I go over and look for it?" And I walked over there, and there it laid. I picked it up and blood run out of it. A vision don't bleed, you know. So I picked it up, and it was a squirrel. I got real numb, all over.
And I looked around, I said, "God, that was You!" I said, "Thank You, for this. Now I'll go out and . . ."
He said, "But you said! Do you doubt what you said? You said you'd get 'three.' Now where will the next one come from?"
I thought, "Well, if I'm dreaming, I'm going to continue on."
So I said . . . I picked out an old post over there, of a tree that was all wrapped up with this here poison ivy. You never get a squirrel in that. So I said, "The next one will come right out of that poison ivy," and there set that young red squirrel looking right at me. I set my gun down, and rubbed my eyes. Turned around again, I thought . . . There he set, turned his head sideways. I shot the squirrel, and then I started to go home.
But said, "You said 'three'! Do you doubt what you said?"
I said, "No, Lord, I don't doubt what I said, for You're confirming." This is one Scripture that stumped me: "Not if I say, but if you say." Not if Jesus said it, but if you say it yourself.
And I thought, "Somehow I've broke into that channel, and I know He's here because I'm almost beside myself." I thought, "I'll make this one ridiculous, sure enough."
I said, "They'd be a red squirrel come down off that hill, come right down this a-way, and right by me, and go out, and set on that limb, and look down there at that farmer." Here he come down the hill, went right out, and sat, looked at the farmer. And I shot him.
Satan said to me, "You know what? The woods is just full of them, now." And I set there till twelve o'clock, and not another thing happened. It goes to show that when God . . . He's the very Creator of Heavens and earth!" (65-1127M, par. 126 – 150).
Brother Branham had a need, and Joshua had a need. Without prayer Joshua just commended the Sun. Without a vision he just spoke the Word. So long as you are walking in the Light—doing His will the Token is on display and you have a right to say to that mountain, "Be moved," and don't doubt in your heart.
And it will not be too long before you will have a need, and you will exercise the "third Pull."
As I preached the other day on "A Paradox," when Joshua stopped the sun. Becky back there, said, "Daddy, He couldn't stop the sun," said, "The world would stop. He stopped the world."
I said, "He stopped the sun." God don't make any mistakes in His Bible.
Said, "How could He stop the sun, the sun don't even run? The sun stands still."
I said, "But that missile out there, wasn't what He was talking about. This sun that was traveling and making it light across the earth, that's the sun He stopped." I don't know what God did to bring it to pass, but He stopped the sun. The sun was going this way, the sun on the earth, the reflection of the sun. That missile out there, didn't see in a million miles of it, or millions of miles. But the reflection of the sun that was traveling across the earth from day to night, that's what Joshua commanded to stand still; and it stopped. A paradox is something that's unbelievable, yet true. So that's unbelievable, but yet true" (61-1231M, If God be with us then where is all the Miracles, par. 129-133).
The Sun is 93 million miles distant from earth, so sunlight takes 8 minutes 20 seconds to get to reach earth. Joshua thought of an anti-Copernican system—that is immediately perceptible without discussion. It is the childishly simple view of the universe which he perceives as a geocentric earth on a fixed center that must necessarily have possessed the Biblical writers as children of their time; according to the view of the author—an astronomical miracle—and we, following him, have no thought.
It is carefully to be observed that it is not said, that God did at Joshua's request increase the length of that day by about a whole day, or cause the sun to stand still for nearly a whole day, but only that "God hearkened to the voice of Joshua," and did not let the sun go down until Israel had avenged themselves upon their enemies (Joshua 10:8-14). The difference is not unimportant. For a marvelous prolongation of that day took place through the exertion of God's Almighty power, the course of the sun-light or his going down was delayed, or on the supposition that the day appeared to Joshua and to Israel wonderfully lengthened, the work accomplished on that day being so great that it would without supernatural help have required two days.
The Israelites had neither sun-dials nor clocks and amid the tumult of the conflict hardly Joshua or anyone engaged in the strife would have repeatedly noticed the shadow of the sun, and inquired after its changes with reference to a tree or other object to perceive that the sun had actually stood still. Under these circumstances it was quite impossible for the Israelites to decide whether that day was really, or only in their conception longer than other days. But the Lord hearkened unto the voice of a man: for He fought for Israel.
We must be careful that we do not literalize colloquial speech, emotion or hyperbole, for instance Joshua 10:12-15, or Psalm 18:7-17. The Scriptures speak of things of the visible world according to their appearance, as we speak of the rising and setting of the sun, yet we have no doubt of the revolution of the earth about the sun. Such a longer standing and visibility of the sun on the horizon might be effected through God's omnipotence in an astronomical phenomenon unknown to us and wholly incomprehensible by natural philosophy, without interfering with the general laws of the rotation of the heavenly bodies.
Cosmologies in which Earth was held to be flat, is an archaic concept of Earth's shape as a plane or disk. A wealth of understanding explains in scientific terms, diagrams, photography and history over thousands of years the misconception that medieval Europeans generally thought Earth was flat, see "The Flat Earth." Many ancient cultures subscribed to an unscriptural flat Earth cosmography, including Greece until the classical period (323BC), the Bronze Age and Iron Age civilizations of the Near East until the Hellenistic period (31BC), and China until the seventeenth century." See "Classical Astronomy and Astronomers," and "Starry Night software".
Astronomy is probably the oldest of sciences. Humans, with their innate curiosity and intelligence have looked up and wondered about phenomena in the sky since prehistoric times. Cultures scattered around the globe have incorporated their observations of celestial objects and events into their creation myths and religions. The Babylonian and Egyptian civilizations made long-term, systematic observations of the night sky and some of their records are extant.
For those among us who subscribe to flat earth theory these files "Debunking Flat Earth," "More than 200 Proofs that the Earth is not Flat," and "Debunking Flat Earth with the Southern Hemisphere" should prove enlightening. It certainly isn't "turtles all the way down" as Lisa Blair, who is the first woman to solo circumnavigate the Antarctic can confirm. Further evidence is the aerial circumnavigation of Antarctica flight plans of "Globe vs. Flat Earth" FIRST—my virtual flight path on a GLOBAL Planet Earth.
The wise men, Judeans whose ancestors had remained in Persia after the Babylonian exile and had not returned under Zerubbabel, were not astronomers or astrologers as is often surmised, but rabbis or priests who were looking for the promised "Star out of Jacob" (Numbers 24:17-19; Genesis 49:10). Furthermore, the star was neither the result of a conjunction of the planets nor was it a comet. It was the Shekinah; it moved, disappeared, reappeared and stood still over the place where Jesus lay. These are the Scriptural facts attendant to the birth of Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Perhaps one was a Judahite, and the other two a Hamitic and a Japhetic proselyte as Brother Branham sometimes indicates.
We must have a clear understanding on these issues before we can study the Jubilee. Reading this ancient text in the light of omens is more likely to align our understanding with the warrior Joshua than reading in the light of contemporary physics.
Joshua and his men marched fifteen miles overnight from Gilgal to Gibeon where they defeated the enemy and set them on the run. Under inspiration the following morning Joshua commanded, "in the sight of Israel, Sun, you stand still upon Gibeon [in the east]; and you, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon [in the west]." Gibeon and Ajalon are only about nine miles apart. To see the sun upon Gibeon and the moon upon Ajalon it must be early morning, and Joshua must be between the two places. Five miles from Gibeon would soon be accomplished. If the battle began at daybreak, a single hour after sunrise would be sufficient to bring the pursuers and pursued to the required spot. If the sun is in the east and moon is in the west, we can conclude that not only is it morning, but that it is morning at the time of the full moon. It was the first day of the full moon, and the orb of the sun is fully visible above the eastern horizon behind Joshua and the orb of the moon is fully visible above the western horizon before his enemy for minutes after the sun rose. This is one of the most important times of the month for receiving significant celestial omens.
All would be in harmony with a full-twenty-eight day month and full-length days. So the full moon on the morning of the fourteenth day was a good omen for Joshua, but not the omen that the Amorites would have hoped for. As the Lord answered Joshua's prayer the Amorites would feel that their battle was doomed. "And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of the (eastern quarter of) the sky, not the meridian, (while the moon was still visible in the west, enabling Joshua to know that he required extended light), and the moon did not hasten to set or go down as on a propitious day and as a prelude to the nation avenging itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jasher" (Joshua 10:13; biologos.org).
Pentecost and seven Church Ages have passed into history and darkness in the east and "we live in a certain perplexing day in which the Light of God's unchanging Word seems neither clear, nor dark but the day is one which shall be known to the Lord, and to His end-time Bride, not day nor night: but it shall come to pass that at the evening time before the setting of the S_O_N-Light, it shall be Light. Soon the Latter rain will fall upon Christ's end-time Bride for her harvest Homecoming in summer, and the former rain shall fall upon the elect Israelites in seedtime. Then the Lord will be king over all the earth; and in that day there shall be one Lord Jesus Christ, not Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and His Name will be the only one as it was on the Day of Pentecost" (Zechariah 14:6-9; Acts 2:38-39; 4:12). nl1176.htm
