The Landing Page of Double Portion Inheritance Ministries

  Welcome to Double Portion Inheritance Ministries! 

*At the bottom of this page, you will see an index, where you can access all my blogs according to category and topic.

Maria Merola is the founder of “Double Portion Inheritance,” since August of 2007. This photo was taken in August of 2007, when I was 47 years old. This was the summer when YaHuWaH called me into full-time ministry, and he also gave me the name “Double Portion Inheritance.” 

What does the name of the ministry mean? Why is it called “Double Portion Inheritance?”  To learn more, see the blog entitled: What is The Double Portion Inheritance?

Who is Maria Merola? Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born on August 18, 1960 into an Italian, Roman Catholic family, as both parents were born in Naples Italy, but they both immigrated to American after World War II. My birth name is Maria Domenica Merola. My married name since 2014. is Maria Merola Wold. Pictured is me, at age 2 1/2 being held by my father, Dominic Merola, and my mother Anna Merola holding my baby brother, John in 1962.

The town where I was born, is New Castle, Pennsylvania, (about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania). New Castle was, (and still is) heavily populated with Italian immigrants, as well as Greeks, Polish, and African-Americans. Growing up in New Castle, was like growing up in a melting pot of various ethnic influences, with a whopping 30% of the population being Italians. 

Although I am 100% Italian (first-generation), I have had a great love for the nation of Yisra’el, and the Yahuwdiym (Jewish) people since being born-again between 1974-1981. In 1974, I encountered a friend in my childhood neighborhood who shared the true gospel of Messiah with me, as he explained the need for all people to become “born-again,” according to John 3:3 and 1st Peter 2:3.

This had been a foreign concept to me, because it was never taught to us in Catholic School by the nuns. We were erroneously taught that being sprinkled with water on the forehead (as an infant), insured our salvation. It was in 1974, when I first learned that all people are born into the world with a fallen nature, (which we have inherited from Adam). Scripture confirms this, as it is written, that by Adam, (the first man), sin entered into the world (Romans 5:12-14). 

And because we are born with this fallen nature (inherited from Adam), all people must be “born-again,” or we cannot enter the Kingdom of Elohiym. 

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 

Tehilliym (Psalm) 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Elohiym. 

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 

In the summer of 1974, (at the age of 14), this was the first time I had heard of the concept of being spiritually reborn (as taught by our Messiah in John 3:3-8). For the first time in my life, I realized that I needed a savior, and that’s when I first repeated a “sinners prayer,” with another teenage boy from my neighborhood named “Dominic.” Dominic had a special “glow” about him. 

He beamed with joy and excitement every day, as he walked through our neighborhood like a modern-day “John the Baptist,” I made a verbal acknowledgement that I was born a sinner by nature, and that I needed a savior. I knew that the one who could save me, (by giving me a new nature), was the Messiah I had read about in the Bible. Back then, I knew him as “Jesus Christ.” 

However, I would eventually learn his true name, Yahuwshuwa (Joshua in English). It would be six more years, before I completely surrendered my life to Yahuwshuwa, as my Messiah. On February 10th, 1981, I was called out of a life of sin, and that’s when I announced to my family, that I was leaving Roman Catholicism, much to their “shock and horror.” 

I transitioned from a life of living selfishly, into a surrendered life of faith in Yahuwshuwa. Within that first year, I spent every waking hour reading the Scriptures, (beginning with Genesis), and finishing with the Book of Revelation. It was during that first year, that I had an insatiable hunger to understand the ways of Elohiym our Creator.

That same year, I was immersed (baptized) in water, but also with the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) and fire. What came along with my being filled with the Spirit of Yah, was the evidence of speaking with “renewed tongues” (Isaiah 6:5-7; 28:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 2:2-17; 1st Corinthians 12:1-11 & 14:1-40). 

This gift has been promised to every Messiah-follower as a “sign” of his “Renewed” (New) Covenant (Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16). 

To learn more about this gift, see the following blogs:

When we are “Born-again of incorruptible seed” (1st Peter 2:3), we are given the same spiritual nature of our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa! It is only by the “The blood of the lamb,” that we are cleansed from the evil nature. a Yahuwshuwa himself told us that if we “Eat his flesh and drink his blood,” we have his life in us (John 6:54-56). 

Eating his flesh, and drinking his blood, is not meant to be literal, as Roman Catholicism teaches. Our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa was sharing with us a “metaphor” when he said the following words:

Yahuwchanon (John) 6:35....I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.

The word of Elohiym is our sustenance, and the only thing that can satisfy the human heart: 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of Elohiym. 

Luqas (Luke) 4:4 And Yahuwshuwa answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of Elohiym. 

In other words, when we “come to him,” we are eating his flesh (metaphorically), because our spiritual hunger shall be satisfied. When we “believe on him,” we shall never thirst, because our spiritual thirst shall be satisfied. 

Therefore, “eating his flesh” is a metaphor for reading his words, and allowing them to transform our lives. “Drinking his blood,” is a metaphor for allowing his words to make us clean (John 15:3; Joel 3:21), thereby changing our very DNA! 

Thus, being born-again of “incorruptible seed,” means that we have Messiah’s seed in us. Just like a plant is sown into the ground, it must first “die” (decompose), before it produces life, and springs forth into a green plant! Similarly, those of us that have our Messiah’s “seed” in us, shall one day be given immortal/incorruptible bodies, just like him! (See Ezekiel 37:1-14; Romans 8:23; 1st Corinthians 15:35-54). 

If you would like to experience this transformation, pray these words, and mean them from your heart: 

“Heavenly Father, I know that I was born a sinner by nature, and I must be reborn spiritually. I come to you now, asking you to forgive my sins. I repent of my sinful ways, and I ask you to cleanse me with the blood of Messiah, Yahuwshuwa. 

I turn away from all my sinful ways, and I choose to pursue a life of righteousness, by the power of your Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit). I now surrender my life completely to you, Yahuwshuwa, and I invite you to change me, and to transform me into a new creation, after your likeness. 

Let me become ‘born-again’ of your incorruptible seed, and fill me now with your Ruwach ha’Qodesh.” 

If you have recited this prayer, I urge you to continue to pursue a life pleasing to YaHuWaH, by studying the Scriptures, and asking the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) to teach you all things: 

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 2:27 But the anointing which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.

What our Messiah was telling us, is that the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit), has been given to us when we are “born-again” by the blood of Messiah, and his Spirit will teach us all things. 

It is important not to be turned aside to false teachers, who will lead you into a spiritual ditch. Stay in prayer, constantly, and study the word of Elohiym! Let the Ruwach/Spirit of Yah be your teacher, and if you listen to the teachings of others, weigh it up against Scripture. Now, the question often arises, “Maria, which Bible shall I use?” 

I strongly recommend the “Easy Read King James Bible,” which is the same thing as the 1611 King James Version, without the archaic language. Why do I recommend the King James Version? 

The main reason is because there is a copyright law in America, (and in other nations), requiring Bible Translators to make at least 30% changes to the text, before registering their “version,” as a new copyrightable work, worthy of earning profit. 

These “changes” are required for a new “Bible Version” to be copyrighted. For this reason, I have been using the King James Version since my conversion in 1981, but as I read it, I restore the sacred names of the Father and the Son. 

When I see the name “Jesus Christ,” I read it as “Yahuwshuwa Messiah,” or “Yahuwshua ha’Mashiyach.” 

When I see “God,” I read it as “Elohiym.” 

When I see “LORD” in all capital letters, I say “YaHuWaH,” which is the proper name of our Father. 

When I see “Lord” in lower and uppercase letters in the Tanakh or Old Testament, I read it as “Adonay.” 

In the “New Testament,” it’s a bit more complicated. There are three different definitions in the Greek Textus Receptus for “Lord.” Whenever it’s the word “Kurios,” the word should be the proper name of YaHuWaH. 

The other two definitions mean “master, or a ruler of a household.” I also recommend downloading the “Esword Program” free onto your desktop, and be sure to download KJV & KJV + which enables you to hover over the words, and look up the meaning of each word in the Hebrew Concordance (for the Tanakh/Old Testament) or Greek (for the Briyth Chadashah/New Testament). 

I also recommend the following Bibles: 

The ISR Scriptures Version from 2009.
The Aramaic English New Testament by Andrew Gabriel Roth. 
The HalleluYah Scriptures.

Is the Earth Fixed & Immovable?

By Maria Merola אריאל 
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, June 2002-2023 

Even though the entire counsel of scripture reveals that the earth is a spinning globe, the idea of a flat earth has made a come-back since 2015; and a large sector of society now believes that the earth is fixed and immovable. This idea is largely based on a misunderstanding of a few key verses in the Bible, and also because there has been a rising mistrust of people towards the United States government, since the events of 9/11/2001, (and rightfully so). 

It was revealed to me by the Spirit of Yah on 9/11/2001, that the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, as well as the Pentagon near Washington D.C. were planned by our own government. I never had a doubt about that, since the first day these events occurred. I am keenly aware that our United States government has lied to its citizens about many things.

However, just because it is possible that the United States may have faked the Apollo Moon Mission in 1966, (due to being in a Cold War with Russia), some people make a huge leap, and assume that NASA has lied to us about everything, including the shape of the earth. As a matter of fact, some even have peddled the false idea that the acronym NASA means “deception” in Hebrew, but that is utterly false. As you can see from the graphic below, the Hebrew word “nasa” means “to lift,” or to be “lifted up!” There is another Hebrew word “nasha” that does mean “deception,” but this word has nothing to do with the acronym NASA, which means National Aeronautics & Space Administration. 

The Ancient Hebrews did not believe in a flat earth, as many have falsely reported. It was actually the Ancient Sumerians who worshiped the god of the domed flat earth named Anu. Anu existed in Sumerian cosmogony as a dome that covered the flat earth.

Outside of this dome was the primordial body of water known as Tiamat (not to be confused with the subterranean Abzu). In Sumerian mythology, Anu, also called The high one,”  is a demonic god of the sky. He was known as the “The lord of the constellations, and king of gods who commanded all other gods, spirits, and demons.
See more at this link: 

The writers of the Hebrew Scriptures, such as Moses, Job, and the prophets knew that the earth was a spinning globe, simply from observation, and because they knew the Creator of heaven and earth.

Isaiah 24:1 describes the earth under judgement in these last days, and it says that the earth is being “TURNED UPSIDE DOWN!”

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 24:1 Behold, YHWH makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof

The Hebrew word for “EMPTY” (baqaq) in the above verse, literally means “TO DEPOPULATE!” Yisra’el,

Since the Covid-19 Vaccine was first administered in December of 2020, about 70% of the worlds population, has taken the poison into their bodies. Since that time, we have seen an unprecedented rise in mortality, even from those who are very young and healthy. There is a documentary that was published in 2022 entitled “Died Suddenly.” It is available on Netflix, Rumble & YouTube:

The main message of Isaiah 24, is that YaHuWaH is deliberately separating the wheat from the tares, in these last days (Matthew 13:25, 29 & 30). He is separating the sheep from the goats, as per Matthew 25:32-33).

In Ezekiel 9, YaHuWaH sends a messenger to slaughter everyone who does not “SIGH & CRY AT THE ABOMINATIONS” that are taking place in Jerusalem, but only those who have been “SEALED” ahead of time, by Yah, will be spared. 

Only those who are “MARKED” by YaHuWaH with the Hebrew Letter “Taw” (Tav), will survive what is getting ready to come upon the earth during the Great Tribulation. Those who are part of the corporate Two Witnesses, will not be harmed, until their ministry of 1,260 days is completed (Revelation 11:5).

The entire chapter of Isaiah 24, is describing what is taking place right now, with Earth’s, magnetic poles flipping, so that the magnetic North Pole is trading places with the magnetic South Pole.

Isaiah 24:1 describes the earth under judgement in these last days, and it says that the earth is being “TURNED UPSIDE DOWN!” 

Isaiah 24:1 is describing what is taking place right now, with the earth’s magnetic poles flipping, so that the magnetic North Pole is trading places with the magnetic South Pole. 



Flat Earthers use this one verse in 1st Chronicles 16:30 to try and prove that the earth is fixed and immovable: 

Fear before him, all the earth: THE WORLD [GLOBE, TEBEL] also shall be stable [FIXED, SECURE], THAT IT BE NOT MOVED.” 

The key to understanding the above verse, is to look up the Hebrew meaning for the word “MOVED,” which literally means: “TO BE TAKEN OFF COURSE, TO BE FALLEN IN DECAY, TO HAVE IT’S POLES BENT.” 

We cannot properly understand the meaning of 1st Chronicles 16:30 without first doing a study on how this word is used in other passages of scripture. 

Below are a couple of examples, where the word “MOVED,” is not being used in the literal sense of motion, but rather, it is used to describe an emotional or spiritual state of being anxious, or at peace in the midst of trouble: 

Psalm 10:6 He has said in his heart, I SHALL NOT BE MOVED: for I shall never be in adversity. 

Psalm 13:4 Lest my enemy says, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice WHEN I AM MOVED

The Hebrew word for “MOVED” is “MOWT,” and it means the following: “TO BE TAKEN OFF COURSE.” 

It also means “TO BE FALLEN IN DECAY.” 

It also means “A BENT POLE!” 

If the earth is being “TURNED UPSIDE DOWN,” this means that on a Flat Earth model, all the oceans will fill up the imaginary dome, and every person on the planet will drown!


Here is an example of how this word “MOWT” is used in another passage: 

Leviticus 25:35 And if your brother be waxen poor, and FALLEN IN DECAY [MOWT, MOVED] with you; then you shall relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with you. 

In this passage, the Hebrew word “MOWT” (MOVED) is describing a brother who has FALLEN IN DECAY FINANCIALLY! 

It’s NOT describing motion! 

It’s describing something that TAKES A TURN FOR THE WORSE!

It’s describing BEING MOVED emotionally or spiritually, or to be “TAKEN OFF COURSE!”

Here are a few other verses in scripture, telling us that the earth does move:

Psalm 99:1 YHWH reignsh; let the people tremble: he sits between the cherubims; LET THE EARTH BE MOVED.

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, THE EARTH IS MOVED EXCEEDINGLY. 

Jeremiah 49:21 THE EARTH IS MOVED at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea. 

Jeremiah 50:46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon THE EARTH IS MOVED, and the cry is heard among the nations.

Is the Earth a Literal Footstool?

By Maria Merola אריאל 
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, August 2002-2023 

When Scripture says “The earth is my footstool,” in Hebrew, it means “My possession.” 

The English word “footstool” is a Euphemism for a possession.

Isaiah 66:1 Thus says YHWH, The heaven is my throne, and THE EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL: where is the house that you build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? 

Here are a couple of other places where this same word #7272 (regel) is used:

Genesis 8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, [#H7272, regel] and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. 

Genesis 18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, [#H7272, regel] and rest yourselves under the tree:

What is a “pudenda?” 

Looking this word up in the dictionary, we find that it means the genitalia of a person, especially a woman! What this means, is that YaHuWaH views the earth as his bride, his wife! 

The same Hebrew word is used in Psalm 110:4, referring to Messiah's enemies. 

Psalm 110:1 YHWH said unto my Master, Sit you at my right hand, until I make your enemies your FOOTSTOOL. 

Are we to imagine that these enemies, (these people) are shaped like literal footstools? Of course, not! 

The Hebrew word for “footstool” implies conquering something, and making it your possession. 

Matthew 5:35 Nor by THE EARTH; FOR IT IS HIS FOOTSTOOL: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 

Acts 7:49 Heaven is my throne, and EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL: what house will you build me? says YHWH: or what is the place of my rest? 

The Greek word for “footstool” in the above passages is as follows:

#5286. hupopodion hoop-op-od'-ee-on neuter of a compound of 5259 and 4228; SOMETHING UNDER THE FEET, i.e. a foot-rest (figuratively):--footstool.

What is the meaning of “feet” any way?

The first mention of the “heel” being bruised or crushed, is found in Genesis 3:15, where a prophecy is given concerning our Messiah, and his followers. The prophecy is telling us that Eve's “seed,” (who is the future Messiah), would crush the head of the serpent (the devil), but the devil would also crush or bruise our Messiah's “heel,” meaning his bride, his inheritance. 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.  

In the story of the twins born to Rebekah & Isaac, (Jacob & Esau), we learn that Jacob was the twin who came out grabbing his brother Esau's heel:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 25:23 And YHWH said unto her, Two nations are in your womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from your bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. 

From the above passage, we learn that the “heel” is symbolic of the birthright, or the inheritance. When the boys grew up, Esau forfeited his birthright (inheritance) for a bowl of stew, while Jacob respected and valued the birthright. This is why he came out of the womb grabbing the “heel” of his older brother.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 25:26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Yaaqob (Jacob): and Yitzchaq (Isaac) was threescore years old when she bare them. 

After Yisrael was delivered out of Egyptian slavery, YaHuWaH told Joshua, and the Yisraelites that they would conquer and “POSESS” every place upon which the soles of their feet took them:

Yahuwshuwa (Joshua) 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Mosheh (Moses). 

In the story of the Prodigal Son, when he returned home to his father, (and repented for squandering his inheritance), his father gifted him with “shoes on his feet,” which was symbolic of his inheritance or his birthright. Thus, he received a “double portion inheritance,” even though he was undeserving of it, and had wasted his first portion.

Luke 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet.

The “robe,” is akin to Joseph's coat of many colors, which was a symbol of Joseph's birthright. In the case of the Prodigal Son, because he humbled himself and repented, he was given a “white robe of righteousness,” (Isaiah 61:10), which is symbolic of the bride's white linen garments (Revelation 19:14-18).

On the night before our Messiah died, he washed the “feet” of his disciples (as a prophetic declaration), that he was cleansing his inheritance, his possession, his bride!

Yahuwchanon (John) 13:8 Keefa (Peter) said unto him, You shall never wash my feet. Yahuwshuwa answered him, If I wash you not, you have no part with me.

Thus, we can now understand, that when YaHuWaH declares that the earth is his “footstool,” he is not describing the shape of the earth! He is describing what the people of the earth mean to him!

Flat-earthers use this fictitious graphic to insinuate that the earth is resting on literal “pillars,” and thus, the pillars look like a literal footstool.

However, that is not what is being conveyed when YaHuWaH describes the earth as being his “footstool,” or that his earth rests on “pillars.” To learn about what the pillars of the earth are, please see my other blog: What Are the Pillars of the Earth?

What Are the Pillars of the Earth?

By Maria Merola אריאל 
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, August 2002-2023

The first thing that I want to make abundantly clear, concerning this phrase “pillars of the earth, (whenever it is used in scripture), it is most often used as a metaphor of our Creator’s “strength, and stability.Sometimes, the phrase is used to describe core principles or values of how something within creation functions. In other cases, we have heard an Idiomatic expression, where a well-respected person is person is a “A pillar in the communityor “A pillar of the church.

Pictured here is an illustration of the earth spinning on its axis. Earth’s rotational axis is tilted at about a 23.5 degree angle between an objects axis of rotation, and its orbital axis, perpendicular to the orbital plane. 

Although we cannot see the imaginary magnetic poles, we know they are there, keeping the earth stable, so that it will not be taken off it’s orbital course. This is what is meant in 1st Chronicles 16:30, where it says: “Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.” 

The key to understanding this verse, is to look up the Hebrew meaning for the word “moved, which literally means “To be taken off course, to have it’s poles bent. We cannot properly understand the meaning of 1st Chronicles 16:30 without first doing a study on how this word is used in other passages of Scripture. Below are a couple of examples, where the word “moved,is not being used in the literal sense of motion, but rather, it is used to describe an emotional or spiritual state of tranquility:

Psalm 10:6 He has said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 

Psalm 13:4 Lest my enemy says, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved

Below, is an illustration that is often used by those peddling the Flat Earth narrative. 

As you can, see, by this Flat Earth graphic, the earth is supposedly resting on foundations, which have pillars below Sheol. The only problem with this model, is that the earth hangs on nothing: 

Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangs the earth upon nothing. 

In Psalm 75:3 Asaph quotes Elohiym: “The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.” 

The context is Yah’s judgment of the wicked “inhabitants of the earth being dissolved.” At a time of his choosing, YaHuWaH will bring down the evildoers, and exalt the righteous. The shaking “pillars” of the earth in this Psalm seem to be a reference to unsteadiness and unrest in society, due to the onslaught of wicked men. 

Elohiym promises to intervene, and restore society to stability. Or it could be that the “pillars” in Psalm 75:3 are the righteous, whom YaHuWaH promises to keep from spiritually falling . 

In the following passage, the Assembly of Elohiym are being described as “pillars,” and “the ground of truth.”

1st Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of Elohiym, which is the Assembly of the living Elohiym, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Another place where people are likened unto “pillars,” is seen in Revelation 3:12.

Revelation 3:12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my Elohiym, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my Elohiym, and the name of the city of my Elohiym, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my Elohiym: and I will write upon him my new name.

Often, when scripture uses the phrase “the pillars of the earth,” it is not a scientific description of the shape of the earth. These phrases are not describing literal pillars on which the earth sits upon. In most cases, this phrase “the pillars of the earth” is a poetic way to denote foundations, strength, and stability.  

We have often heard people use an expression such as “The Police Chief in our town, has been a pillar in our community.”

In the following passage, Hannah is bringing her petition to Elohiym, as she was barren, and wanted him to bless her with a son. This was her prayer:

1st Samuel 2:8 He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH are YaHuWaH’s, and he has set the WORLD [TEBEL, GLOBE] upon them. 

The Hebrew word for “pillar” in the above passage, is as follows in the Concordance:

#4690 matsuwqmawt-sook SOMETHING NARROW, i.e. A COLUMN, a hilltop, PILLAR, TO SITUATE. 

The root word is as follows: 

#6693 tsuwq tsook a primitive root; TO COMPRESS i.e. (figuratively) oppress, distress:--CONSTRAIN distress, lie sore, to STRAIGHTEN

The earth is slightly compressed at the Equator, which causes it to bulge, and thus makes the earth ever so slightly as an “Oblate Sphere.” The earth’s axis causes it’s position to be tilted, so that it is “constrained,” and therefore, it will “NOT MOVE OFF ITS ORBITAL COURSE!”

In this next passage of scripture, the word “pillar” is a different Hebrew word:

Psalm 75:3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the PILLARS of it. Selah.

The Hebrew word for “pillar” in the above passage, is as follows in the Concordance:


The word “pillars” in Psalm 75:3 could be speaking of righteous people (as I already described). However, it could also be describing what causes the earth to move and to spin. We get a clue from the following verse, as this is an end-time prophecy. It's meaning can only be understood, by reading it from the beginning in context.

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, THE EARTH IS MOVED EXCEEDINGLY. 

The word “MOVED” in the above passage is as follows: 

#4131 & #4132 MOWT- TO WAVER, BE OUT OF COURSE, A POLE (as shaking), hence, a yoke, a BENT POLE, A BAR, BE MOVED, STAFF.

The context of Isaiah 24 is speaking of the end-times, and the judgement that will come upon the earth, due to the increase of the wickedness of humanity.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, YHWH makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof

When looking at the Hebrew word for “empty” in the above verse, it is #1238, in the Concordance, “baqaq,” which means “TO DEPOPULATE!” 

We have been seeing this phenomenon with our very eyes, since the Plandemic of 2020, and the subsequent deaths occurring, due to the poisonous vaccines. 

Isaiah 24:1 is also describing a literal shift in the magnetic poles of the earth, which Scientists had been predicting for years, and is now underway. We are currently witnessing strange weather patterns around the world, as the magnetic North Pole, is shifting, and trading places with the magnetic South Pole. In other words, the earth's poles are literally being “turned upside down!”

If the earth is turned upside down on a flat earth, we have a serious problem. All the water from the oceans will fill up the dome, and everyone will drown. Additionally, the sun and the moon from inside the dome will also be covered in water. Please see my other blog entitled: Is the Earth Fixed & Immovable?

What are the Pillars of the Earth? 

Earth has two primary motions: REVOLUTION & ROTATION. 

The Earth is a “GIANT GYROSCOPE,” spinning on its axis. There are three places in Scripture, where the earth is described as having “pillars.” 

These “pillars,” are the Earth’s Axis or poles! 

As a matter of fact, the Hebrew word for “MOVED” (MOWT) literally means “A BENT POLE, TO BE TAKEN OFF COURSE.” 

Therefore, when Scripture says that “The earth shall not be moved,
(1st Chronicles 16:30), it is using this Hebrew word “mowt,” which means that the earth will not have its “POLES/PILLARS BENT, NEITHER WILL IT BE TAKEN OFF ITS ORBITAL COURSE!” 

In the Greek Septuagint, Isaiah 40:22 says that the earth is a “GYRO” (something that GYRATES/ROTATES). The earth’s annual orbit of the sun, takes a bit more than 365 days per year (hence, a leap year with 366 days every four years in order to “catch up”). 

The earth’s POLES SHIFTED after the flood in Noah’s day, causing the earth to take 5 days longer to make a full revolution around the sun. We know this, because in the days of Noah, the Ark rested upon the waters for 150 days (5 months of 30 days each). See Genesis 7:24 & 8:3. 

However, just before the ministry of the Two Witnesses begins, “The days shall be shortened,” because the earth’s poles will once again shift, so that it will only take 360 days for the earth to make a full revolution around the sun! See my other blog entitled “Except Those Days Should be Shortened”

In Revelation 11:4, the ministry of the Two Witnesses lasts for 1,260 days, which when divided by 3.5 years is exactly 30 days for each month. See my other blog to learn more about who the Two Witnesses are: Who Are the Two Witnesses?

We are going back to the days of Noah, when “The days were shorter!” This is taking place right now, as there are reports since CERN activated their particle collider on July 5th, 2022, that the earth's poles are shifting rapidly! 

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, THE EARTH IS MOVED EXCEEDINGLY

The Hebrew word for “MOVED” is “MOWT” which means “TO WAVER, TO BE OUT OF COURSE, A BENT POLE, A BAR, A STAFF.” 


However, the earth is currently undergoing a major POLE SHIFT, just as when a woman is about to give birth, the baby in the womb turns upside down, and prepares to come through the birth canal! 

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, YHWH makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and TURNS IT UPSIDE DOWN, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof. 

Additional Understanding of the Pillars of the Earth 

Stephen Pidgeon has a great article on his website explaining the four pillars of the earth, (which directly ties into Earth’s Axis or poles).
I will not share the entire article, but I will quote a few sections of his article. You will have to visit his website and watch the video, to learn more. The Pillars of the Earth by Stephen Pidgeon

Dr. Pidgeon begins by explaining the definition of a pillar: 

“A pillar is a stone cylinder supporting a portion of a building. An example can be seen in the US Capitol building. In a broader sense, the term pillar is used to describe anything that provides major structural support. So the part of a microscope that holds the lenses rigidly in place is called a pillar, even though it is not made of stone, and is not supporting any part of a building. The term is also used metaphorically to describe fundamental or core elements of a religion or philosophy, as, for example, in the “The Five Pillars of Islam,or the Thirteen Pillars of Judaism.” 

The Four Pillars of the Earth are seen in Genesis 1:14: And Elohiym said, Let there be lights in the expanse (raqiya, firmament) of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  

1.) Shanah (Year). 
2.) Mo’ediym (Seasons). 
3.) Chodesh (Monthly cycles). 
4.) Yomiym (Days). 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 40:22 It is he that sits (yashab, marries) upon the circle (chuwg, sphere) of the earth (erets, land), and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain (doq – crumbling powder), and spreads them out as a tent (ohel – tabernacle) to dwell in.

Marias insertion here:

The word interpreted as circle is the word chuwg (חוּג) (Strong’s #2329), which is interpreted as a circle, or a circuit, compass, or a sphere. The Hebrew word for establish (yashab) has wedding covenant language attached to it:

#H3427 yashab yaw-shab' a primitive root; properly, to sit down (specifically as judge. in ambush, in quiet); by implication, to dwell, to remain; causatively, to settle, to marry: abide, continue, (cause to, make to) endure, establish, habitation.

As you can see, YaHuWaH sees the earth as his bride, and those who are his in the earth, he will marry at his return. To learn how the rotation of the earth is directly tied to the seven annual feasts of YaHuWaH, and the future “Marriage Supper of the Lamb, see my other blog entitled: Why Does the Bride Circle Around Her Bridegroom Seven Times?

Dr. Pidgeons article continues here:

Now, let’s take a look at the word for curtain. In the Hebrew, the word in this passage is doq (דֹּק) (Strong’s #H1852), which is typically translated into the English as something crumbling, i.e. fine (as a thin cloth). In the last instance, it is also interpreted as a curtain. 

However, if we look at the root for doq, we find the word daqaq (דָּקַק) (Strong’s #H1854), which is dâqaq. We see that the word doq in the first instance means something crumbling, and we see now that its root daqaq means to crumble, to make dust, to make into powder. So, at this point, this passage could easily read as follows: 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 40:22 It is he that sits (marries) upon the orbit (sphere) of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as locusts; that stretches out the heavens as a crumbling powder, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in.

Finally, let’s review the last word for tent. 

In the Hebrew, the word is ohel (אֹהֶל) (Strong’s #H168), which is generally interpreted as a tent, but also means a covering, a dwelling place, a home, or even a tabernacle. Let’s use tabernacle instead of tent in this instance: 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 40:22 It is he that establishes the circuit (rotation) of the earth, and establishes the inhabitants thereof as locusts; that stretches out the heavens like a crumbling powder, and spreads them out as a tabernacle in which to dwell: 

1.) Pillar Number One: Years/Shanayim – established by the orbit of the earth. The year is achieved with the arrival of the earth at its starting point along its circuit. This moment is called the New Year (Rosh Ha’Shanah) and has been celebrated by every culture on earth since the beginning of recorded history (although the date of such completion varies from culture to culture). 

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 1:14 And Elohiym said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens (raqiya, firmament) to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for appointed feasts, and for days, and years.

Marias insertion here:

In the above verse, we see four purposes (four foundational principles or pillars) that govern the way YaHuWaH orders time, using the lights in the heavens:

1.) The stars/constellations are for signs.
2.) The lunar cycles (moon) are for keeping the months, and the appointed feasts.
3.) The sun measures the 24-hour day, which is divided into two halves of 12 hours.
4.) The sun also measures the year, for when the earth makes a full revolution around the sun, it is called a “Tequwphah.” 

#8622 tquwphah tek-oo-faw' or tquphah {tek-oo-faw'}; from 5362; a revolution, i.e. (of the earth around the sun) course, (of time) lapse:--circuit, come about, end.

Dr. Pidgeons article continues here:

This begs the question, doesn’t it? What is a year? Answer: It is the annual renewed cycle of the orbit of the earth. In a geocentric model, (assuming a planet and a separate sun), the sun orbits the earth daily. 

Therefore, an annual cycle appears irrelevant, unless you are somehow marking the abnormalities found in the pathways of the sun. And for what purpose would such anomalies exist? 

#2.) Pillar Number Two: Seasons/Mo’ediym – established by the tilt of the earth. 

Shemoth (Exodus) 13:5-10 is where YaHuWaH commands his people to keep his seven annual feasts, beginning with Passover, in the first month of the year. Verse 10 says You shall therefore guard this ordinance in his appointed time from year to year. 

We not only find that years appear (which are irrelevant to an earth-orbiting sun), but also that seasons (mo’ediym) appear, and are calculated and called appointed times in scripture. 

Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes) 3:1-2 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.

Marias insertion here:

Once again, there are four purposes listed in the above passage, showing that there are four seasons in the life of people, plants and animals:

1.) A time to be born (birth).
2.) A time to die (death).
3.) A time to plant (sowing seed).
4.) A time to pluck up (harvest).

Dr. Pidgeons article continues here:

The seasons also do not appear in an earth-orbiting sun schedule, unless such a schedule suffers from anomalies and inordinances that have no rhyme or reason. 

Why should the days get longer and the nights shorter in the northern countries (again, northern is a term which cannot exist except on a spherical earth), and the days get shorter and the nights longer in the southern countries? 

Yet such a question is easily answered when we recognize the tilt of the earth, causes the north pole leaning toward the sun in the summer, and leaning away from the sun in the winter. 

The seasons have been regularly calculated since the construction of the pyramids (and possibly earlier), as they are indented in the middle and facing exactly due north (again, a concept that only exists on a spherical earth), which yields equidistant shadows on the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Again these only exist if there are seasons, which have no logical impetus in a geocentric model.

#3.) Pillar Number Three: Months/Chodesh – established by the renewed cycle of the moon in orbit around the earth. The cycles of the moon called chodesh in the Hebrew, (renewing cycle – the moon is called yire’ach) also evidences a spherical earth, an orbiting moon around the earth, and a heliocentric model demonstrating the shadow of the earth on the moon throughout its semi-regular cycle of orbit. 

It is the regular cycle which occurs every 28-30 days that gives us months (moon’ths). Why would such a cycle exist in a model which has the sun orbiting above the earth? It would be irrelevant. Day unto day; night unto night, months and years would factor as nothing. 

#4.) Pillar Number Four: Days/Yomiym – established by the daily rotation of the earth. 

Bere’shiyth 1:14 states that the stars, the sun and the moon are also given to us for days (yomiym). We see that in Bere’shiyth 1:5, that the evening and the morning were the first day. This calculation is made, based on the setting of the sun. 

Simply put, the sun goes down, when the day has ended. But because it is a renewing cycle, the day also begins when the day ends. This is best understood when looking at a circle (in two dimensions) or a sphere (in three dimensions). 

In a circle, the starting point is also the ending point. Some may say that the day should begin with sunrise, in which case the day would also end at sunrise. Yet Scripture gives us evening first (Genesis 1:5). Nowhere in Scripture can you find that the day should begin in the middle of the night. 

The Four Pillars of the Earth are principals upon which we locusts rely to live on this earth. How many can say I live without regard to years, seasons, months and days? 

Yet, these principals are set forth very early in Scripture – in the first chapter of Bere’shiyth (Beginnings).
