The Aurora Australis Over Antarctica
For centuries, people have referred to our earth, the planet upon which we live, as "mother earth."
In nature, seeds germinate in fertile soil to become giant trees, crops of our fields, or the humble grass we walk on. We don't even think about the air we breath, but we couldn't live without it. The soil and waters of earth grow the food we eat. The gravity of earth holds our feet firmly on the ground. Without the gravity of our mother earth, we would float out into outer space and be lost. Our lives depend entirely upon the fortitude of our mother earth. From space, earth appears as a beautiful jewel shining in the light of the sun. Our lives depend so much on mother earth that most of the time we take her for granted, but some people even worship her.
It would seem that mother earth indeed is the source of all life upon it. Seeds germinate in its soil, fish lay their eggs in the sea and hatch to fill the oceans with life. Our very own bodies are made from mother earth -- made from the minerals taken up in the plants that we eat. And when we die, our bodies disintegrate into soil once more to provide the fertilizer for yet another life to begin its life's journey in the light of the sun. Yet science has utterly been unable to generate life from lifelessness. It seems to be an indisputable law of the universe that only life can beget life. Therefore, it is a logical assumption that our earth must be alive in order for it to beget life on and within it.
Indeed, God's revealed word to man indicates that our earth is alive. It appears that God would have us know that our earth upon which we live is actually a living being. This is not a new idea. The indigenous people of many lands believe to this day that the earth is alive. For example, the American Indian treat the earth with great respect because they believe it is alive.
Is there any scriptural or scientific evidence that would indicate that our earth is alive? Believe it or not, there is an abundance of this evidence. Not that the earth should be worshiped like many ancient peoples apparently did when they worshiped the earth, the sun, the moon and stars. But at least, this knowledge should generate within us a deep respect for the planet upon which we live which provides us our home in the vastness of space.
The scriptures do indicate that our "mother" earth is alive. In the scriptures, we find that the Earth has many characteristics of a living being. It has a mouth, a womb, a heart, a navel, with openings into it's interior, breathes, and can even "speak" as an intelligent being. Indeed, the scriptures when describing the earth, describe a hollow planet with polar openings and an interior sun with people living throughout its entirety -- on its outer surface, within it's shell, on it's inner surface and within the interior sun.
Earth's Premortal Existence
As all living beings, the earth was "born" spiritually first, and then came into existence physically second. It acknowledges the existence of its creator, God, and "obeys" God's celestial law. As a righteous living being, the Earth underwent a baptism of immersion in water at the time of Noah's flood. At the beginning of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ upon the Earth, it will undergo a baptism of fire, and at the end of it's temporal existence, the earth will "die" and be brought forth in it's resurrected form as a celestial kingdom to be inhabited in the eternities by those of its inhabitants worthy of a celestial glory.
All life had it's genesis with God. Jesus Christ is the creator of heaven and earth -- the Great "I Am," who revealed himself to Moses. And all living things were created first spiritually before they were created temporally upon the earth.
In Genesis 2:5, we learn that "every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew" were created first spiritually before they were created physically upon the earth.
This was clarified in Joseph Smith's re translation of the Book of Moses: "For I, the Lord God, created all things, of which I have spoken, spiritually, before they were naturally upon the face of the earth. For I, the Lord God, had not caused it to rain upon the face of the earth. And I, the Lord God, had created all the children of men; and not yet a man to till the ground; for in heaven created I them; and there was not yet flesh upon the earth, neither in the water, neither in the air;" (Pearl of Great Price, Moses 3:5)
All living beings, including the earth, have a spirit body, as well as a physical body. Jesus Christ revealed to the prophet Joseph Smith, "that which is spiritual being in the likeness of that which is temporal; and that which is temporal in the likeness of that which is spiritual; the spirit of man in the likeness of his person, as also the spirit of the beast, and every other creature which God has created." (Doctrine & Covenants 77:2) It is the spirit within each living being that gives it life. When that spirit leaves the physical body at death, then that body becomes life-less.
From this we learn that within our bodies, we have a spirit that looks like us, but is made of a "spiritual" substance. To the prophet Joseph Smith, it was revealed that, "There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but it is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes; We cannot see it; but when our bodies are purified we shall see that it is all matter." (D&C 131:7-8)
What's more, it is evident from the scriptures that the spirit of every living thing had parents in Heaven that gave it life. Concerning our heavenly parents, the scripture states, referring to Our Father in Heaven, "Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?" (Hebrews 12:9) And Christ told his disciples to pray to "Our Father which art in heaven..." in which Christ is telling us that we all have a father in heaven -- the father of our spirit bodies, and if we have a father, we also, of course, have a mother in heaven, -- for wherever was there a father without a mother?
Even so, if our earth is a living entity, it must also have a spirit that gives it life. Indeed, it is so, for the spirit world of this earth is where the spirits of all men go at death. The Mormon Apostle, Bruce R. McConkie, in his book, MORMON DOCTRINE wrote, "The spirit that enters the body at birth leaves it at death, and immediately finds itself in the spirit world. That world is upon this earth." (MORMON DOCTRINE, p. 68) Since the spirits of all living entities have the same shape and appearance as their physical bodies, so the earth's spirit world has the same shape and form as it's physical body -- and is what makes the earth alive.
Joseph Fielding Smith, the great nephew of Joseph Smith, stated that, "This earth is a living body." (DOCTRINES OF SALVATION, Vol. I p. 72) As a living body, the earth actually obeys God's commands. It is a mortal being and will die and be resurrected the same as all of us by the power of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith, "And again, verily, I say unto you, the earth abideth the law of a celestial kingdom, for it filleth the measure of its creation, and transgresseth not the law. Wherefore, it shall be sanctified; yea, notwithstanding it shall DIE, it shall be quickened again, and shall abide the power by which it is quickened, and the righteous shall inherit it." (D&C 88:25, 26).
As a living being, our earth has a spirit -- it is the spirit world where all men go at death. That spirit world had it's beginning in heaven as did the spirits of all men. The earth was created spiritually in heaven before being created physically here in our solar system. If the earth's spirit were created in the presence of God, most likely it was created in His world. God, our Heavenly Father's planet is a star in the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. The largest stars are located in the center of the galaxy and control all the other stars throughout the galaxy by reason of their great size, mass and central position.
This was revealed by God to Abraham, "And I Abraham, had the Urim and Thummim, which the Lord my God had given unto me, in Ur of the Chaldees; And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was NEAREST UNTO THE THRONE OF GOD; and there were many great ones which were near unto it; And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons in the revolutions thereof; that one revolution was a day unto the Lord, after his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time appointed unto that whereon thou standest. This is the reckoning of the Lord's time, according to the reckoning of Kolob." (ABRAHAM, The Pearl of Great Price, 3:1-3) Verse 9 clarifies that it is Kolob that governs our galaxy wherein our earth resides: "And thus there shall be the reckoning of the time of one planet above another, until thou come nigh unto Kolob, which Kolob is after the reckoning of the Lord’s time; which Kolob is set nigh unto the throne of God, to govern all those planets which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest."
In the explanation of Facsimile No. 2 in the book of Abraham, Figure 2 says, "Stands next to Kolob, called by the Egyptians, Oliblish, which is the next grand governing creation near to the celestial or the place where God resides...Fig 4...the time of Oliblish, which is equal with Kolob in its revolution and in its measuring of time."
Therefore, as revealed through Abraham, at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy which is "the same order (in the same galaxy) as that upon which thou standest," are two stars of gigantic size, in rotation about a common center of gravity -- a double star system with the rest of the galaxy rotating about them. Both Kolob and Oliblish are the same size and take 1,000 of our earth years to complete one rotation or day. Oliblish "...is the next grand governing creation near to the celestial or the place where God resides..." and Kolob is the "...nearest unto the throne of God." Therefore, I conclude that the throne of God is INSIDE Kolob and Kolob is HOLLOW as are all stars and planets. In fact, the stars ARE planets -- the planets of the Gods.
Since a hollow planet or star essentially consists of matter in orbit about its central sun, perhaps we could use Kepler's 3rd Law of Planetary Motion to calculate the size of Kolob. Using Kepler's 3rd Law of Planetary Motion, we can use the following formula to calculate orbital radii,
R = a planet's distance from the sun in astronomical units. One AU equals 93,000,000 miles, the average distance from the earth to the sun.
T = the time for a planet to orbit the sun in earth years
V = 1 divided by the square root of R.
Knowing this formula and the time it takes for one revolution of Kolob,
100 AU = 1/10 earth velocity X 1000 years
From this, we can deduce that the distance to Kolob's outer surface from God inner throne, "...the celestial or the place where God resides..." would be 100 astronomical units, or 9.3 billion miles. That is 2.5 times the distance from the sun to the planet Pluto. The diameter of Kolob and its companion double star then, would be about 18.6 billion miles -- plenty of space could be found within its hollow interior for the creation of planets.
Since spirit beings are the offspring of celestial parentage -- just as the human race has celestial parents of their spirits, it is logical to assume that the earth's spirit body would have celestial parentage also -- that being the planet of Our Heavenly Father and His Throne in Kolob at the center of our galaxy.
Earth's Physical Origin and Characteristics
Just as our physical bodies were created on this earth, the Earth's physical body probably also originated within our own solar system -- a best guess would be the planet Uranus.
One of the physical characteristics the scriptures give in describing our planet earth as a living entity, is that it has a "womb" within it, and that our earth is the "mother" of mankind and can actually utter words.
In the Book of Moses, Chapter 7, verse 48, we read, "And it came to pass that Enoch looked upon the earth; and HE HEARD A VOICE FROM THE BOWELS THEREOF, saying: Wo, wo is me, THE MOTHER OF MEN; I am pained, I am weary, because of the wickedness of my children. When shall I rest, and be cleansed from the filthiness which is GONE FORTH OUT OF ME? When will my Creator sanctify me, that I may rest, and righteousness for a season abide UPON MY FACE?" Thus Enoch testified that the earth is an intelligence living entity that he heard speak words.
In recent decades with the mapping of earth's sea floor, it appears that our "mother" earth is expanding, and even has stretch marks in many places on the ocean floor, and many continents appear that they could have at one time fit together as the scriptures indicate that in the beginning there was but one continent that came up out of the sea, and at the beginning of the millennium that the many continents shall be "returned to their own place" as they were before they were divided.
In Genesis, we read, "And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good." (Genesis 1:9-10)
Even the earth's oceans shall be driven back into the north countries of our hollow earth where they came from at the time of Noah's flood, and the many continents and islands will become one continent again in the time of the restitution of all things.
As the Apostle Peter wrote, "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that
your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from
the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was
preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of
restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his
holy prophets since the world began." (Acts 3:19-21)
There is a continual series of earthquakes along the mid-Atlantic ridge and around the Pacific "ring of fire" where molten lava emerges pushing the continents apart as the earth expands. Perhaps, when the earth "dies," after the short period of time after the millennium, the earth will break apart at the mid-Atlantic ridge, and then roll up like a scroll.
After His resurrection, Jesus came to ancient America and spoke of this to the Nephite Nation, "And he did expound all things, even from the beginning until the time that he should come in his glory—yea, even all things which should come upon the face of the earth, even until the elements should melt with fervent heat, and the earth should be wrapt together as a scroll, and the heavens and the earth should pass away;" (3 Nephi 26:3)
The ancient American prophet Mormon wrote, "Know ye not that ye are in the hands of God? Know ye not that he hath all power, and at his great command the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll?" (Mormon 5:23)
If the earth is hollow, then earth's shell could conceivably break apart down the seam of the mid-Atlantic ridge and then roll up like a scroll at the time the earth dies at the end of the earth's temporal existence.
The earth also has polar orifices that lead into its interior.
A Baby Mammoth found frozen in Siberia in 1977
Norwegian fishermen claim to have also gone through this polar opening in the Arctic Ocean into the Hollow Earth where they saw great herds of woolly mammoths, and describe how in winter when the Arctic sun has dipped below the horizon, that within the earth sometimes baby mammoths wander out onto the frozen rivers that empty into the polar opening where they fall into crevasses in the ice and are instantly frozen. Later, when the summer sun shines through the polar orifice, the frozen rivers are thawed out and carry their frozen animals and dump them onto the northern shores of Siberia and Alaska. When these frozen mammoths are opened up, they find undigested green vegetation in their stomachs indicating they were frozen so fast the food was unable to be digested before they froze. The remains of other exotic animals have also been found entombed in arctic ice, such as the woolly rhino, steppe lions, giant deer, mammoth and foxes and a hardy breed of horse -- that originate from Inner Earth.
One of the things
that God describes in His scriptures that comes "out" of the earth's womb
through polar orifices is the fresh water icebergs found in Arctic and
Water vapors also come out of the earth's womb from the polar orifices.
Apparently, all planets have "wombs," which makes for the possibility that planets could be "born" from the
"wombs" of larger planets.
A perplexing discovery was made by Apollo astronauts when they brought moon rocks back to earth to be analyzed. Prior to the Apollo moon shots, scientists had assumed that the moon was made out of the same materials as the earth. Yet the rocks brought back from the moon were found to consist of materials very different from those found on earth, containing very dense rare earth materials. Testing also determined that the moon is much older than the earth.
A prominent LDS geologist, Eric N. Skousen, (son of the
late famous LDS author, Cleon Skousen) believes this indicates that the moon may
have been here first. According to his theory, the moon originally possessed
earth's orbit about the sun BEFORE the earth was placed here, and that the
earth was created somewhere else INSIDE another planet in an actual
planetary birth process. (See, pp. 92-96, EARTH, IN THE BEGINNING, by Dr.
Eric N. Skousen) Dr. Skousen, quotes one of the earlier LDS church leaders,
Heber C. Kimball, as asking, "Where did the earth come from?" To which he
answered his own question: "From its parent earths." (November 8, 1857,
Journal of Discourses, 6:36)
Man's Physical Origin Within Mother Earth
Our Earth is literally the "mother" of men.
The scriptures indicate where the original Garden of Eden is located -- within the earth's "womb."
Out of the Garden of Eden flow four rivers that divide
the earth into four parts which converge at the "four corners" of the earth
-- at Eden.
So if earth is the "mother of men" and has a "womb," then the logical place for the origin of man would be from the earth's interior. This would mean that the original Garden of Eden must be located, even today inside the earth.
When Enoch heard the earth speak, he heard it say that it was "the mother of men," and that the children of men came "forth out of me." (Moses 7:48)
From THE FORGOTTEN BOOKS OF EDEN we read of the manner in which Adam and Eve arrived on the surface of the planet from the Garden of Eden within. In the book of ADAM AND EVE, we find that when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden, the Lord commanded them to go into the Cave of Treasures where they wandered for a long time before emerging in their new home on the exterior of the planet. (Chapter III:17, XII)
The sun they saw when they came out of the cave was not the same that gave them light in the Garden of Eden. Chapter XVI says that when Adam came out of the cave, he was afraid of the sun and its extraordinary heat because, "Inasmuch as while he was in the garden and heard the voice of God and the sound He made in the garden, and feared Him, Adam never saw the brilliant light of the sun, neither did the flaming heat thereof touch his body."
By passing through the earth's cavern systems from the earth's "womb" inside to come to the surface, Adam and Eve were "born" into this world by "mother" earth. Their second home on the earth's surface was near the cavern that brought them here.
Brigham Young taught that, "Joseph, the prophet told me that the Garden of Eden was in Jackson County, Missouri. When Adam was driven out, he went to the place we now call Adam-ondi-Ahman, in Daviess County, Missouri." (WILFORD WOODRUFF, by Cowley, p. 431) Joseph Smith was right. The Garden of Eden IS in Jackson County, Missouri, but NOT on the surface. It is located 800 miles down -- on the inner surface of the earth on the highest mountain plateau of the Inner Continent.
The 16th century
Spanish scholar Bernardino de Sahagun recorded in his History of the
Things of New Spain that the original settlers of America, the ancestors
of the American Indians, came in boats from the East in search of the
terrestrial paradise. They settled in Central America near the highest
mountains they could find, because they had with them an account that the
earthly paradise is a very high mountain. (Ancient America and The Book of
Mormon, pp. 31, 156.)
mountain can be seen on Mercator's
map of the arctic which first appeared as a vignette in his 1569 world map. The
Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator's methods of
map-making were so accurate and reliable that they are still commonly used
today (for example, the Mercator projection) and have remained virtually
unchanged for nearly 450 years! His maps of Europe and the known world were
exceptionally accurate and were commonly used with a great degree of
reliability for navigation and commerce.
In 1827, William Morgan, whose wife later became one of Joseph Smith's plural wives, was taken on a mission to Inner Earth -- most likely through the same cavern system that Adam and Eve wandered through on their journey from the Garden of Eden within to their home without.
William Morgan had joined the Free Masonic movement with the intent on learning their secrets so he could subsequently publish their secret rites, which he did. As punishment for this, the Masons, had him thrown in jail for a debt, then stole him out of prison. They took him to a secluded shack out in the woods. They dug up a body that resembled him, and threw it into a river and published an account in the papers that it was William Morgan. There was a big uproar by the people that lived in the vicinity -- all neighbors of the prophet Joseph Smith -- with preachers and citizens rising up against the Masons for what they had done.
But the Masons didn't kill William Morgan. They secretly took him to live as a prisoner to a cabin in the woods until he grew a long beard. They then added some chemicals to his skin and beard and hair on his head to turn it so he looked like a very old man. They then took him back to his wife, who claimed he wasn't her husband, that she had seen the dead body of her husband, and that she didn't now know him. Then the Masons took Morgan to Kentucky, near the Mammoth Cave where he was taken by an Inner Earth guide through the cavern systems to our hollow earth. Many years later, Morgan reappeared as a translated being and gave the account of his trip to inner earth. It was later published by John Uri Lloyd as Etidorpha. Bruce Walton, hollow earth researcher from Provo, Utah, discovered that William Morgan was the I-AM-THE-MAN in the book, ETIDORPHA.
The Lost Ten Tribes in Inner Earth
"I was then really
'the bosom friend and companion of the Prophet
Dr. Clay McConkie, with B.A. in history and a Ph.D. in
education, declared in his book,
The Ten Lost Tribes, A People of Destiny,
that after a thorough analysis of all scriptural references to the Ten Lost
Tribes of Israel that the scriptures indicate that the lost tribes ..."are
presently living in a locality not on the earth, but somewhere in the
earth... in ...an area capable of accommodating a relatively large
civilization of people and keeping them hidden from the world for more than
twenty-five centuries." He points out that scripture indicates that this
large area inside the earth must be where most of the water came from that
covered the earth's surface at the time of Noah's flood, and that the exit
point in the Arctic must also be the entrance to inner earth that the Lost
Tribes took when they disappeared into the north country 25 centuries ago
and from which they will someday soon reappear with great fanfare to help
spread the Kingdom of God throughout the earth in preparation for the Second
Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The earth's "womb" and "the outmost parts of Heaven" to where the Lord took the Lost Tribes in scripture is also called the "North Countries" because it can be accessed through the north polar orifice to the earth's interior. Jeremiah testified that, "In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together OUT OF THE LAND OF THE NORTH to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers." (Jeremiah 3:12-18)
Some of the house of Judah are also there, because the scriptures indicate that that is where the lost and legal inherited throne of David is located.
The Political Kingdom of God in Inner Earth
According to the Bible, the Kingdom of Israel in Palestine under King David and his son Solomon became divided at Solomon's death. The tribes of Judah and Benjamin resided in the south around Jerusalem, and the other Ten Tribes resided in the north of Palestine with their capital at Samaria. In 721 BC, Assyria conquered the northern Ten Tribes and took them into captivity.
A century later, in 687 BC, when Assyria encamped outside Jerusalem to take it captive also, the record of the Jews reported that a blast from space killed all 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. They were preparing to attack Jerusalem the next morning. It was not a flame, but a consuming blast: "Their souls were burnt, though their garments remained intact," the record stated. The phenomenon was accompanied by a terrific noise. It was probably an interplanetary lightning bolt from a passing planetary body such as a comet.
This event allowed the Ten Tribes to escape their Assyrian captors. Apparently, they were considering returning to their homeland in Palestine, but upon reaching the Euphrates River, they discovered that an earthquake that accompanied the blast from Heaven, had caved in the narrow canyon in the upper reaches of the river, and so the river ran dry at their crossing point. Their leaders were inspired to direct the Israelites to instead of cross the river, that they would instead travel up the dry river bed until they reached a natural caved-in dam caused by the earthquake where they climbed out. The next day, when the home-standing army of the Assyrians in pursuit reached the river, it was again flowing with the turbulent waters of the flood from the broken dam. They could see the tracks of the Israelites entering the river, but could not see where they had come out on the other side. Thus, the Lord assisted the Ten Tribes in their escape from Assyrian captivity.
The Ten Tribes then continued north over the Caucasus Mountains and encamped north of the Black Sea, where many stayed. But a sizeable group continued their trek north into Russia, Mongolia and Siberia, where some of their remains have been found to this day. But they didn't stay there either. Their trek took them even further north through the northern aperture of the earth led by a prophet of God where they live today in the "North Countries" of Our Hollow Earth.
The Apostle John, gave us an indication where the Lost Tribes of Israel went -- through the Earth's "mouth" into the bowels of the earth where the waters of Noah's flood had come from and subsided to. In Chapter 12 of Revelations, the "woman," which is the House of Israel, was persecuted by the "dragon" which is Satan and his followers. The House of Israel escaped into the "wilderness" of Russia, Mongolia and Siberia and passed through the earth's "mouth" into the interior of the earth 2,500 years ago where they reside to this today.
John recorded, "And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child (referring to Jesus Christ -- a descendant of Judah of the House of Israel). And to the woman (the House of Israel) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent (another reference to Satan. The Lost Tribes went to the Hollow Earth 2,500 years ago. One time = 1,000 earth years, being one day of the Lord). And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed (remnants of the House of Israel that stayed on the earth's surface), which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (Rev 12:13-17)
To the prophet Joseph Smith, the Lord Jesus Christ revealed that the Lost Tribes have prophets, and shall lead the Lost Tribes when they come out of the Land of the North to outer earth to receive their endowments in the House of the Lord by the hand of the children of Ephraim who are the Servants of the Lord, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- in the New Jerusalem, which Joseph Smith said they will help build.
"And they who are
in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their
prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they
shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence.
This scripture says the Lost Tribes have prophets of God and have the
gospel of Jesus Christ -- the Jehovah of the Old Testament. They were
visited by the Lord Jesus Christ after his visit to ancient America.
He told his disciples in Jerusalem, "And OTHER SHEEP I have, which are not
of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and
there shall be one fold, and one shepherd." (John 10:16)
After the Lord visited the Nephites in Ancient America, he visited the Lost Tribes of Israel in the North Countries of Inner Earth. And the record of that visit will be found in their holy scriptures when they return to outer earth to expand the Kingdom of God to all the world.
To those that reject the Word of God given to prophets in Ancient America found today in the Book of Mormon, the Lord Jesus Christ saith,
"Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews? Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and IN THE EARTH BENEATH; and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth? Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another?...For behold, I shall speak unto the Jews and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the Nephites and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the other tribes of the house of Israel, which I HAVE LED AWAY, and they shall write it...And it shall come to pass, that the Jews shall have the words of the Nephites, and the Nephites shall have the words of the Jews; and the Nephites and the Jews shall have the words of the LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL; and the lost tribes of Israel shall have the words of the Nephites and the Jews." (2 NEPHI 29:6-14)
Many today reject the record of the Jews, which is the Holy Bible, as the word of God, saying that it is just myth and stories made up by the Hebrews. Many more today also reject the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ that testifies that He came to ancient America after his resurrection where he set up his church and taught his everlasting gospel. But when the Lost Tribes return and bring their scriptures, those that reject this third witness that Jesus Is the Christ, the Savior of the World -- will be burned at His Coming in Glory.
The law of God and His people Israel, is that in the mouth of two or
three witnesses shall all truth be established, and according to the Law
given to Moses on, Mt. Sinai, which was
Mt. Horeb in
the Land of Midian in Arabia, a man cannot be condemned to death by God's
law, except at the testimony of two or three witnesses. "...at the
mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter
be established." (Deut 19:15) During the Millennium, the wicked
will be ashes beneath the feet of those who have accepted God's word in
righteousness. "And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be
ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith
the Lord of hosts." (Malachi 4:1-3)
The Lost Tribes will bring forth the political Kingdom of God to our surface world.
To King David the Lord promised that he and his sons would rule over the house of Israel forever: "Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel said, 'Although my house be not so with God; YET HE HATH MADE WITH ME AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, ordered in all things, and sure...'" (2 Samuel 23:1,5)
This was the covenant that the Lord made
with David: "And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established forever
before thee; THY THRONE SHALL BE ESTABLISHED FOREVER. According to all these
words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan (the prophet) speak
And of David's son Solomon, the Lord said, "He shall build an house for my name, and I WILL ESTABLISH THE THRONE OF HIS KINGDOM FOREVER." (2 Samuel 7:13)
The Lord had explained to David, as he recorded in Psalms 89: Verse 3. "I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, 4. Thy SEED will I establish FOREVER, and build up THY THRONE TO ALL GENERATIONS. Selah. 28. My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 29. His SEED also will I make to ENDURE forever, and his THRONE AS THE DAYS OF HEAVEN. 30. If his children FORSAKE my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31. If they BREAK my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32. Then will I visit their transgression WITH THE ROD, and their iniquity with stripes. 33. Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I NOT UTTERLY TAKE from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 34. MY COVENANT WILL I NOT BREAK, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. 36. HIS SEED SHALL ENDURE FOREVER, AND HIS THRONE AS THE SUN BEFORE ME. 37. It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah." (PSALMS 89:3, 4, 28-37)
"For thus saith the Lord; there shall NOT BE CUT OFF from David A MAN to sit upon the throne of THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL." (Jeremiah 33:14-17) From this scripture we discover that there will never be a time that A MAN, a descendent of David, will not sit upon the throne of David. However, the scripture makes clear that the throne of David is now not over Judah but over THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL -- the ten tribe nation which went into the North Countries of Our Hollow Earth.
The throne of David today exists in the North Countries. It is the living, legal, righteous and acceptable throne of David. The government of the Lost Tribes is a Theocracy. It is the political Kingdom of God.
Olaf Jansen, the Norwegian fisherman, described his interview with the
King of Israel. After obtaining the North Countries in their fishing craft
through the North Polar Opening, he and his father were taken before the
Great High Priest, Ruler Over All the Land:
Joseph Smith spoke of this last of the Kings of Israel before Christ takes over the throne at the commencement of the Millennium, "Although David was king, he never did obtain the spirit and power of Elijah and the fullness of the priesthood; and the Priesthood that he received, and the throne and kingdom of David is to be taken from him and given to another by the NAME OF DAVID in the last days, RAISED UP OUT OF HIS LINEAGE." (TEACHINGS, p. 339)
This King David, a descendant of David lives today and is the King of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel in Our Hollow Earth. He is a prophet of God, necessarily under the direction of the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who today holds the keys given by Moses to Joseph Smith in the Kirtland Temple. At that time, Joseph Smith recorded that "...the heavens were again opened unto us; and Moses appeared before us, and committed unto us the keys of the gathering of Israel from the four parts of the earth, and the leading of the ten tribes from the land of the north." (D&C 110:11)
The prophet Jeremiah testified that a righteous branch of the House of
Israel were taken by God to Inner Earth, "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a
RIGHTEOUS BRANCH, and a KING SHALL REIGN and prosper, and shall execute
judgment and justice IN THE EARTH."
The scripture testifies of the earth, "And truth is established in her bowels;"
(D&C 84:101) It
explains that truth is established in the earth's bowels because people live
there who have the truth and live by it. During the Millennium there will be
three world capitals of the political Kingdom of God -- Jerusalem in Palestine, the New Jerusalem in Missouri,
and the City of Eden inside the "bowels" of the earth from whence the word
of the Lord will issue forth to all the world.
The Heart of the Earth
The "outmost parts of
Heaven" to where the Lost Tribes were taken, also gives us an indication of
where the Heaven of this earth is located within the "heart" of the earth.
Christ told the thief on the cross, "Today
shalt thou be with me in Paradise," (Luke 23:43)
The scriptures teach us that Mother Earth has a heart. It is the location of Paradise, or the Heaven of this earth, where Christ's spirit went while his body lay in the tomb. He told the Jews where he would be going. Christ told them, "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights IN THE HEART OF THE EARTH."
Since the "heart of the earth" can be considered the "center" of the earth, Paradise must be located in the center of the earth, or as Paul expressed it, in "the lower parts of the earth." It is covered by a bright cloud and "shines." The Lord said to Job, "Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. Doest thou know when God disposed them, AND CAUSED THE LIGHT OF HIS CLOUD TO SHINE?" (Job 37:14.15) It is the location of God's throne in the Heaven of this Earth in the center of the earth's womb. "He holdeth back the FACE OF HIS THRONE, and spreadeth his CLOUD upon it." (Job 26:9)
Paradise, the Heaven of this earth in the "heart of the earth," is also where Jesus Christ reigns from his throne on this earth. He told the prophet Nephi, "...that I rule in the heavens above and IN THE EARTH BENEATH;" (2 Nephi 29:7) It is the place that Jesus hides himself. Joseph Smith prayed saying, "O, God, where art thou? And where is the pavilion that covereth thy HIDING PLACE?" (D&C 121:1) To which fact, the prophet Isaiah also testified, "Verily thou art a God that HIDEST thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour." (Isaiah 45:15)
The throne of our Savior in Paradise has a cloud that shines and covers it indicating that Paradise is a place of light. Indeed, the Prophet Joseph Smith stated that when the righteous die and go to Paradise (which is another word the Savior used for Heaven), they will be enveloped in "flames of fire." He stated, "The spirits of the just are exalted to a greater and more glorious work; hence they are blessed in their departure to the world of spirits. ENVELOPED IN FLAMING FIRE, THEY ARE NOT FAR FROM US, and know and understand our thoughts, feelings, and motions, and are often pained therewith." (TEACHINGS OF THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH, p. 326) In Nephi's vision of the Tree of Life, in which he saw Paradise, he testified that, "...the brightness thereof was like unto the brightness of a flaming fire"... (I Nephi 15:30)
The prophet Enoch testified of Paradise saying, "My spirit saw around the CIRCLE OF THIS FLAMING HABITATION, on one of its extremities, that there were rivers of living fire, which encompassed it." (Lost Books of the Bible, The Book of Enoch 70:8) He saw this fire coming from Paradise streaming towards the ends of the earth, "Where I beheld the operation of a GREAT FIRE BLAZING AND GLITTERING, in the midst of which there was a DIVISION. COLUMNS OF FIRE struggled together to the end of the ABYSS, and deep was their descent..." (The Book of Enoch 21:4-5, From Lost Books of the Bible) These are the source of auroras that emanate out from the earth's womb from Paradise within through the polar orifices which are literally the "ends of the earth" from whence the Lost Ten Tribes will come in the latter days. The Lord said through the prophet Isaiah, "I will say to the NORTH, GIVE UP; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the END OF THE EARTH;" (Isaiah 43:6)
The "ends of the earth" are the earth's polar openings that lead into the interior "womb" of "mother" earth. The earth's womb, in scripture, is also called the Abyss, or "Bottomless Pit," because it has neither a top nor a bottom consisting of the "empty places" spoken by the prophet Job -- which are the polar orifices, and is also referred to as the "Great Gulf." It is a great hollow within the earth's bowels. The prophet Abraham in Paradise was speaking to the rich man in hell and said, "And beside all this, between us and you there is a GREAT GULF FIXED: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence." (Luke 16:26)
The prophet Nephi also saw this great gulf in his vision of the Tree of Life. He testified that between Hell and Paradise was "an awful gulf which separated the wicked from the tree of life, and also from the saints of God." (2 Nephi 15:28)
Apostle Bruce R. McConkie wrote, "The Spirit World is divided into two parts: PARADISE which is the abode of the righteous, and HELL which is the abode of the wicked." (MORMON DOCTRINE, "Spirit World" p. 68) They are separated by the great gulf.
Thus, the scriptures describe a hollow spirit world, with Hell located down in the earth's shell, and Paradise in the center or "heart" of the earth in the "lower parts of the earth" separated by a "great gulf" of space. And since the spirit of all living beings have the same shape and form as their physical bodies, the physical world must also be hollow with a central sun.
"Spirit Prison" would be located on the surface of the planet where spirits that haven't been cast down to Hell are waiting to hear the gospel, which if they do, and repent and receive a proxy baptism in the Temples of God, they are then empowered to cross the great gulf into Paradise.
Hell, in scripture, is called "outer darkness" because it is dark underneath the surface as anyone who has been in a cavern knows, -- and because it is located "outer" or away from the center Paradise or Heaven of this earth. Many who have died and are medically resuscitated report that after leaving their bodies, they are taken through a dark tunnel through the earth's shell and then come out in brilliant light in Paradise in the center of the earth.
The Tree of Life originally was in the Garden of Eden, but when Adam and Eve were driven out, the Lord transplanted it to Paradise-Heaven, where he placed "Cherubims and a flaming sword which turned everyway to keep the way of the tree of life" so that Adam and Eve could no longer eat the fruit thereof and live forever in their sins. The only way the fruit could to be partaken of again by humans was on condition of repentance and purification of all sin. Then they could be caught up to Heaven to partake of the fruit of the Tree of Life. Christ said regarding the blessing of translation, "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." (John 11:26)
Many Saints have achieved unto this blessing of translation. The City of Enoch, the people who repented in the time of Noah's preaching that were caught up to heaven, King Melchizedek's City of Salem, Elijah, Moses, Alma the Younger, many Masters of the Far East, the Three Nephites, and the Apostle John, the Beloved of the Savior, all have partaken of this blessing wherein the righteous that are cleansed from all sin and wickedness may fore-go death and be caught up to Paradise to become translated beings by partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Life in a special gift from the Savior.
Jesus Christ revealed to John that, "To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God." (REVELATION 2:7) Many who have died and were medically resuscitated report that after passing through a dark tunnel through the earth's shell, they arrive in Paradise in the heart of the earth and see a City of Light in the distance. That City of Light in Paradise is the City of Enoch that was physically taken to Heaven -- buildings and all -- many years before Noah's flood. It will return to the earth's surface at the beginning of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ when Heaven and Hell will change places.
The Celestial Destiny of Earth
In forming the earth,
physical matter was controlled and governed by spirit matter. Therefore, a
hollow spirit world with a central paradise-sun was organized from spirit
matter upon which the physical matter was superimposed. So explained the
guide to I-AM-THE-MAN in Lloyd's ETIDORPHA:
The Inner Earth guide further explained, "The earth forming principle consists of an invisible sphere of energy that, spinning through space, supports the space dust which collects on it, as dust on a bubble. By gradual accumulation of substance on that sphere a hollow ball has resulted, on the outer surface of which you have hither to dwelt. The crust of the earth is comparatively thin, not more than eight hundred miles in average thickness, and is held in position by the central sphere of energy (center of gravity, or central sphere of gravity) that now exists at a distance about seven hundred miles beneath the ocean level." (ETIDORPHA, p. 193)
When we look at the Earth, it may seem to be just one big lump of rock
covered with some dirt and water. But if we look at it from God's
perspective, he describes the earth as having two separate parts.
Notice that "heaven" and "earth" here are both singular. From this we learn that our Earth consists of TWO parts, a "Heaven," and an "Earth."
"And God said, Let there be light; and there was light."
Now, since God placed the Sun, Moon and Stars on the 4th Day of Creation, the question that must be asked is, "What lit up on the first day of creation?"
God goes on to describe this light that he lit up on the first day of creation.
"And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the FIRST DAY."
Here we learn another characteristic of this light, is that God divided it into a light side and dark side. How unusual. What light could have a dark side so that is causes Night? The phrase, "The evening and the morning were the First Day" indicates that this light rotates.
Then God, describes this light even more.
"And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the SECOND DAY."
Here we learn that this light is in the midst of the waters of the earth, and it actually divides the waters below it from the waters above it. How unusual! What kind of light could be suspended between two oceans of water?
Then God describes where this light is located. He says it is located in a "firmament."
The word "firmament," translated from the Greek means "expanse." The dictionary says firmament means, "sky, considered as an arch." A characteristic of an arch is that it is curved. Apparently, God is describing something that is curved, is in the sky, and it separates an ocean, or "waters" above it from an ocean, or "waters" beneath it, and is an "expanse." What is more, God gives this expanse a name. He calls it "Heaven." This part of the creation occurred on a separate day from the first day, so this firmament must have been an important part of the creation of the earth. Where could this expanse, firmament, or Heaven be located?
Nebula NGC 6369
If we would consider that our earth is built with a similar construction, with two separate parts, one inside the other, then we can begin to understand the Creation account in Genesis. The "light" that God lit up on the first day of creation is the core of the earth, or the "heart" of the earth. And it shines.
This is the discovery made by polar explorers. Through polar openings in the Arctic, at the "end of the earth" they have seen through an "empty place" in the earth's shell. And what do they see? An inner sun shining within the hollow of our earth!
This inner sun produces a solar wind that emanates out through the polar openings to light up the auroras at both poles. And our astronomers report that most of the planets in our solar system have been found to have auroras at their poles just like earth.
The Norwegian fisherman-explorer, Olaf Jansen, described this inner sun in his book, The Smoky God.
It was the first part of August 1829. They had been sailing in the Arctic about 15 days northeast of Franz Josef Land through leads in the ice when Olaf recorded:
"One day about this time, my father startled me by calling my attention to a
novel sight far in front of us, almost at the horizon. 'It is a mock sun,'
exclaimed my father. 'I have read of them; it is called a reflection or
mirage. It will soon pass away.'"
Fridtjof Nansen saw a mirage of this inner sun when he was caught in the ice on his ship, the Fram, in February 1894, at 80 degrees 1' N Latitude. He reported, "Monday, February 19th... Both today and yesterday we have seen the mirage of the Sun again; today it was high above the horizon, and almost seemed to assume a round, disk-like form." He remarked that it had a hazy, smoky-red color.
As the Norwegian fishermen explorers, Olaf and his father Jens Jansen passed through the North Polar Opening to Inner Earth, they met the Inner Earth inhabitants who were very friendly to them. They were very large in stature, very refined, highly educated and were in many respects as fair and similar in appearance to North Europeans. In fact, his father considered them his cousins. He told Olaf, his son, that their Norwegian legends told of a country in the far north that was a terrestrial paradise where the "Chosen People" lived. They were cousins, descendants of some of his ancestors, whom Norwegians worshiped, such as Odin, and Thor, whom now they considered to be Gods.
Similarly, members of the Church of Latter-day Saints consider some of their ancestors to be Gods also. Members are taught that they are "modern" Israel, many of which are actual descendants of the tribes of Israel, and if not, all who join the church are adopted into the House of Israel -- and if they live their lives righteously, taking upon themselves the sacred covenants with God of baptism, and covenants of His holy temple, they become worthy of all the inherited blessings God promised to their ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel by an angel of God.
To the prophet Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ revealed, "I am the Lord thy God,
and will give unto thee the law of my Holy Priesthood, as was ordained by me
and my Father before the world was.
However, unlike some of our ancestors that went astray in the worship of
their ancestors, our worship must be confined to the true and living God of
Heaven, even Jesus Christ, of whom the Apostle Peter testified when he
healed a man by God's holy priesthood power, "Be it known unto you all, and
to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man
stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought
of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given
among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:10-12)
He wrote, "In the meantime, we had lost sight of the sun's rays, but we
found a radiance 'within' emanating from the dull-red sun which had already
attracted our attention, now giving out a white light seemingly from a
cloudbank far away in front of us. It dispensed a greater light, I should
say, than two full moons on the clearest night."
All living things have been found to have an electromagnetic field about them. It is sometimes called an "aura." So, the fact that the earth has an electromagnetic field could be an indication that it is alive. Similar to a dynamo, the earth produces an electromagnetic field because it has two parts, both with electrical charges, one rotating about the other. Olaf Jansen reported that the inner sun appeared to be stationary, however, it does rotate very slowly -- originally it was once every 1,000 earth years, but since creation, the earth's rotation has slown down, and has been pushed into an orbit further from the sun, so that the inner sun now rotates about once every 623 years.
Similar to a magnet, the magnetic flux emerges from within at the south magnetic pole, and enters again at the north magnetic pole, which means that within the earth, the directions of the compass are opposite ours on the surface. This is what Olaf Jansen discovered. Their compass continued to point north even after passing through the north polar opening into Inner Earth.
Some people have thought that Olaf's description of how the inner sun appears to come up in the morning in the east and go down in the west, was an indication of the falsity of his story. But they didn't think about this carefully enough. Since magnetic flux flows out of the earth at our south pole, and goes in the north pole, and continues towards the south pole within the earth, then our south pole is their north pole and our north pole is their south pole. Since the earth rotates from west to east on the outside of the earth causing the sun to appear to rise in the east in the morning. and the directions of the compass are opposite inside the earth, then the inner sun's bright "day side" cloud would appear in the east in the morning as seen from the inner surface of the hollow earth, and appear to go out on the west side in the evening so that the dark side of the inner sun then appears for night time.
God's Genesis account appears to now make sense. The light that lit up on the first day of creation was a different sun that our outer sun that was placed in the sky on the 4th day of creation. (Actually, the earth was probably just put in orbit about the sun so that the sun, moon and stars then appeared in the sky.) That "light" that lit up on the first day of creation has a day and night side, and rotates once for every day of the Lord, which God told Abraham was once every 1,000 earth years. That "light" that lit up on the first day of creation is an inner sun suspended within the "expanse," "womb," or hollow of the earth. It is the "heaven" or "heart" of this earth, and "paradise" of the spirit world of earth.
We, as inhabitants of earth, can be grateful to God, our creator, Jesus Christ, and His Father for such a nice place to live. And we can have great respect for our "mother" earth knowing that she is alive, and obeys God's will. In fact, God's prophets have taught that our earth after its resurrection, will be the celestial kingdom for those of us found worthy to live on and in it.
Jesus taught his disciples, that the "meek" will inherit the earth. "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." (Matt 5:5) John, the Beloved, saw the death of the earth and its resurrection in his Revelation.
"And I saw a great white throne and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them."
Notice the special mention of "the earth and THE heaven, " again "heaven" is
The celestial city, the New Jerusalem, that John the Beloved saw, is being build right now inside our outer sun by Jesus and his Saints and Prophets. Phoebe Marie Holmes in 1933, told in her book, My Visit To The Sun, of her visit to the Celestial City of God within the Sun.
She described how she was taken in the Spirit by angels to the heart of the Sun where the New Jerusalem is today being built. It will be brought to earth after the earth's resurrection when the earth becomes celestialized and becomes the abode of the righteous. Since it is so big, 1,500 miles long, wide and high, it will probably take the place of the earth's inner sun in the celestialized earth.
Christ, on his Sermon on the Mount said, "In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." A mansion is being built there right now for each of us, in the New Jerusalem, by our actions here on earth. Phoebe was taken by the angels of God to visit her unfinished mansion, where she found her husband, who had already passed on. She then was brought back to earth to finish her life's work.
Phoebe reported that the city in the Sun is a giant terraced mountain with a
square bottom -- having a pyramid shape. John, the Beloved, in Revelations
21 reported that the New Jerusalem is as long and wide as it is tall and
gave the measurements, which in our units of measure comes to 1,500 miles,
with a wall 1/2 mile thick. So perhaps the ancient Meso-Americans,
Chinese and Egyptians knew the New Jerusalem would have the shape of a
pyramid, and so built their temples with that shape.
Scientists, on the other hand, claim the Sun is entirely gaseous. But if it is hollow and has a shell thickness 10% of its planetary diameter, -- that would give the Sun's shell a density of 2.9 gm/cc, and so would have a solid surface! Glass has a density of 2.6 gm/cc.
The scientific work of Michael Mozina at his website at http://www.TheSurfaceOfTheSun.com, presents considerable evidence that the sun has a solid surface covered by some kind of liquid, perhaps silica. In recent satellite images of the sun in various wave lengths, surface features such as mountains and hills can be seen. He even shows a movie on his website taken by satellite of a "sun quake" on the surface of the sun, which sent out a tsunami from it's epicenter and you can see the waves passing over the mountains.
This evidence that the Sun has a solid surface indicates the Sun is a hollow globe -- since it does not have enough mass to be solid all the way through.
And it's not that hot inside the Sun as scientists claim either. Phoebe described a nice warmth is provided for the celestial city suspended within the Sun's hollow interior.
Joseph F. Smith, wrote in his book, DOCTRINES OF SALVATION, of the Celestial
Destiny of our earth:
are those living celestial laws--which includes baptism in the true church
of Jesus Christ and subsequent righteousness throughout this life. Faith in
the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism by an authorized servant of Jesus
Christ and reception of the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and continued living "by every
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matt 4:4) are the
requirements for entrance into the Celestial World.
Indeed, our LIVING earth is alive, and will continue to be our home forever -- if we are worthy of such a great an honor. After the resurrection, our Living Earth will become a Celestial World for its righteous inhabitants and will take it's place as a Star -- another of God's jewels shining in the vastness of space.
