Can a Geocentrist Use the Celestial Sphere as His Firmament? Nope!

Medieval Theologians attempted to synchronize the Greek Geocentric Two Sphere Model with Scripture, such as the model above presented by the Venerable Bede.

Is this an honest description of the firmament mentioned in Genesis 1? No way!

Gen. 1:7 states, “And Elohim made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.”

Here we have the firmament and the heavenly waters relating to a plane interface not a round or spherical interface. Notice the waters are not around the Earth and around the firmament. They are under and above the firmament. This denotes a flat plane interface. The word under here is the Hebrew tachath, Strongs H8430. The Lexicon states,

“The KJV translates Strongs H8478 in the following manner: instead, under,for, as, with, from, flat, in the same place.”

Interesting that this word is never translated as around but is actually translated flat on one occurrence! This is devastating because the waters under the firmament in verses 9-10 are said to be on the same level as the land! Yah just called the Seas flat!

Much the same can be derived from an examination of the Hebrew word translated above:

This is why we read in Gen. 1:2, 29 that the Earth has a face and the waters have a face. That is because they are a plane interface.

Thus we read in Gen. 1:14-15 that Yah also made the celestial bodies to give light upon the earth, also denoting a plane interface as we read in Ecclesiastes that we are UNDER the Sun. We are not rotating around the Sun according to the Bible. This again denotes a plane interface.
