God proves that he is the everlasting LORD by his creation. All false gods are not the Lord God of the Bible because they are not the creators of the heavens and the earth.
"But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures." (Jeremiah 10:10-13)
The fact that Jesus Christ is the creator is part and parcel of the gospel. Jesus Christ created all things through his word. John 1:1-3, 14; Colossians 1:16. All the host of heaven were made by the breath of Jesus Christ’s mouth. Psalms 33:6. His creation of massive bodies of water covering a flat, immovable earth is inextricably linked with his blessing on those whom he has chosen for salvation. Psalms 33:6-12. Jesus Christ watches from heaven above the firmament over all the inhabitants of his flat earth and stationary earth. Psalm 33:13-14. Jesus Christ looks out over his created flat and stationary earth to shed his mercy on his elect. Psalms 33:18. The creator of heaven and the earth saves his elect who hope in his mercy. Psalms 33:22. The words of God in Psalm 33 (and indeed the very theme of the Bible) reveals that the nature of Jesus Christ’s creation is associated and identified with Jesus Christ’s salvation of his elect. Indeed, God, in his Bible, gives us an understanding of his salvation by explaining his creation of a flat and stationary earth. See Romans 1:18; Pslams 33:1-22; 136:1-26; Jeremiah 10:10-13.
"Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee." (Psalms 33:1-22)
If the devil can use the big-bang heliocentric model to convince men that God did NOT create a fixed and flat earth by speaking "and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast" as explained in Psalms 33:9. The devil can then can convince men that it is NOT true that God "[f]rom the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth," as explained in Psalms 33:14. Once the devil removes God from heaven above and the conscience of men below, it is inexorable that he will then remove men's’ need for salvation, since there are no rules from God that need to be obeyed. Once the devil removes the need for salvation, the devil can attack the Biblical doctrine that God has a "people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance," as described in Psalm 33:12. If there are NO special people elected by God for salvation, then it CANNOT be true that "the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy," as declared in Psalms 33:18. Thus, there is NO basis for anyone to "waiteth for the LORD" as described in Psalms 33:20 because God is NOT "our help and our shield," as described in Psalms 33:20. Once people are convinced by the devil that God is NOT our help and our shield, there is NO cause for our heart to rejoice in him, "because we have trusted in his holy name," as described in Psalms 33:21. In the end, there is NO reason to pray to God: "Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee," as depicted in Psalms 33:20-22. You see, an attack on God’s creation of a flat and stationary earth is an attack on the very existence of God and his merciful salvation. Heliocentrism is an attack on the gospel of Jesus Christ. Those who argue that the creation account in the Bible of a flat and stationary earth is not part of the gospel are, at the very least, unwittingly accomplices in the devil’s dark rebellion against God.
