Was there really a canopy surrounding this planet prior to the global flood?
Genesis 1:7 “So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above the expanse. And it was so.”
Water above the expanse is speaking of the sky as the expanse. The separation was the canopy of water that existed above the expanse.
The water under the expanse was that which came from springs that watered the earth in the form of a mist. The canopy acted as a barrier that held in the heat from the sun so that the earth was like a warm hot-house around the entire planet. It also kept out harmful radiation from the sun. As Father renovates this planet for future kingdom subjects to enjoy during the Millennium, you will come to understand why the polar ice is being melted. It is Father’s will to recreate what once existed. The earth will again become a floral paradise of beauty after the renovation is complete.
Genesis 1:8 “God called the expanse “sky.” Evening came, and then morning: the second day.”
Father’s breath formed the polar caps, and Her anger is melting them. But out of Her anger a renovated earth will be the outcome. Father is making all things new. Father is also enlightening each of your minds with new things.
Isaiah 48:6 “You have heard it. Observe it all. Will you not acknowledge it? From now on I will announce new things to you, hidden things that you have not known.”
Have each of you not already benefited from things that were once hidden within the Word. If so, thank Father in acknowledgment.
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.”
You are eye witnessing the new creation of the future home – the earth. As we speak, the old earth is slowly passing away by being altered to Father’s will once again.
Hebrews 9:11 [ New Covenant Ministry ] Now the Messiah has appeared, high priest of the good things that have come. In the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands” (that is, not of this creation)
Not speaking of heaven only. Who is not created? Your present vessel, and your mind serve as a living tabernacle to Father for your own future hope. Father is the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not created. She is the Creator of our existence. Her sanctuary exists within Her presence.
Since heaven was a creation, you can discern who the greater and more perfect tabernacle is. It is Father.
Hebrews 9:24 “For the Messiah did not enter a sanctuary made with hands (only a model of the true one) but into heaven itself, that He might now appear in the presence of God for us.”
Father’s presence is Her ability to personify Herself in a given area She chooses even though we all exist within Her.
