Biblical Land

Genesis1 - Genesis2 - Cain & Abel - Abrahams Silver - The Sabaths - Biblical Gold - Biblical Silver - Rock and Stone

Most biblical believers cling to the notion that YHVH is something other than everything and everywhere at the same time. This type of rationalization inadvertently places chains upon what The Creator is and is not, as well as what He can and cannot do, as though man knows the abilities YHVH possesses. Equally amazing is how many believers assume that YHVH made everything from something other than himself, which just does not compute within the cranium that holds my thought processes. I believe, at least till shown better or proven differently that YHVH not only made but is at the same time everything. If this thinking is in error then why would He say that he is the alpha and omega, as well as He creates all good and evil? Although man has pondered this matter for eons he has yet to find an acceptable answer, probably because the truth is not yet easily discernable. If this previous sentence has no validity then why didn’t the majority of religious and governmental authorities recognize Yeshua? Further verification would be that most people cannot recognize the truths contained within common rock. It seems man enjoys groping around in the shadowy idealisms where his ideas and interpretations pass as truth, so likely as not the anti-Christ will be accepted as the savior.


I’ve concentrated the few thousand biblical verses containing dirt, soil, dust, fields, valleys, hills, ground, property, earth and land into the few following pages, so that prospectors might approach the kingdom of metals from a different, but revealing perspective.


Genesis 1:9   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.


On the surface this verse indicates that water came first then land appeared. So, does this mean that land was beneath the water? If so, this would explain how massive limestone formations came into existence atop the varied types of rock formations. In addition, this verse helps explain why ore infiltrated currently visible bedded limestone.


It should be noted that there are challenges to the present geological theories regarding the origins of sedimentary deposits, such as limestone, which are claimed to have taken millions of years to accumulate. Some recent theorems suggest that only weeks were required to form such places as the Grand Canyon, which would of course add credence to the biblical account of Noah’s Flood. In addition there are other fascinating premises further disputing conventional wisdom regarding the geological processes of earth. So, although I do not know the truth as to what really happened I continue accepting literal accounts of biblical creation.


Genesis 1:10   And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.


Notice that earth is land and not water, whereas, today earth is taught to be both water and dry land.


The word “good” defines land, but what is land composed of if not the implied metals in the form of mineral matrixes? And, backtracking further where did the metals originate? Obviously, the answer is YHVH for He created and caused everything.


The question that ought to be at the forefront of any prospector’s consideration – is YHVH earth (land, dirt, rock & dust), and if not then why is this stuff good? On the other hand if YHVH is everywhere for there was nothing before YHVH then what portion of the earth is not YHVH? If there was nothing before YHVH then YHVH took from Himself to make that which was and is, which includes the metals that make-up the earth. Revelations 1:8   I am alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

If what I suggest is dead wrong then what’s your definition for omnipotent (Revelations 19:6) or Almighty?


Genesis 1:11   And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.


If a farmer wants an abundant crop his fields must be fertile, and in order for a land to be this way the necessary ingredients (metals, along with the components of weather) must be present. Similarly, the mineral prospector will wisely seek ore that originates in fertile metal ground.


Genesis 1:28   And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…

Does not subdue suggest harvesting (prospering), as well as being at the root of prospecting?


Genesis 1:29   And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.


Food is upon the earth’s face but not in, therefore, food which is the metals in an infinite variety of mineral compounds must be first extracted via the plants that send down roots to mine these metals before they can be beneficial to man’s digestive tract. Does this verse suggest that ionic/colloidal and/or atomic forms of the metals are essential for life?


Genesis 2:7   And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground,…   


Man is made OF dust, whereas plants and animals are made out of the ground suggesting a type of refining.


Genesis 8:3   And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.


Where did the water return to? Did this water go back to the rock and stone from which it may have originated?


Genesis 10:5   By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.


Are these isles the continents that form the present world? Or, were these isles of a different shape in the beginning? There are interesting ideas that a few Christian geologists present which deserve scrutiny.

Genesis 13:6   And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.


Does this verse indicate that land cannot support too many wants or possessions? Men’s desires require space, so it seems that this verse suggests being careful about how much one wants or claims ownership of, such as present day mining claims. (Genesis 36:7)  


Genesis 23:12   And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.

It appears that respect is appropriate for those who claim land.


Genesis 23:13   And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.

This is the 1st reference regarding exchanging money for land. This exchange is in silver, but where did Abram get silver? Apparently, exploration and mining was an established craft in order for silver to become an established medium of exchange. (Genesis 23:15, Genesis 34:10, Genesis 34:21)


Genesis 40:15   For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.


Prisons suggest Canaanite law/rules. Based upon my historical research societies create laws around the natural resources of the land. Therefore, the land’s resources dictate what is ultimately important.


Genesis 47:19   Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate. (Genesis 47:20, Genesis 47:23, Genesis 47:26, Genesis 49:15, Nehemiah 5:3 & Nehemiah 5:4)


A strong suggestion that selling one’s heritage results in debt, tribute and slavery.


Exodus 19:5   Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Despite what kings and govts declare – the land (earth) belongs only to YHVH. It’s a well known fact that govt’s enforce rules at the point of gun. But, what if people based their claim on lands for mineral extraction around biblical tenets? What could a govt whose laws are founded upon Christianity do except acknowledge such?


Leviticus 25:2   Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. (Leviticus 25:4, Leviticus 26:34, Leviticus 26:43, 2 Chronicles 36:21, Nehemiah 10:31   


Strangely, for generations miners who assert biblical beliefs seem to have forgotten about the Land Sabbath.


Leviticus 27:30   And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S: it is holy unto the LORD.

What % of extracted metals should become tithes to YHVH?


The words seed of the land has always been construed to refer to plant seed, but what if this seed is actually referring to the metals within minerals? If this is the case then the metals are holy unto YHVH.


Numbers 11:8   And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans…


There’s little difference between a mineral mortar and a mortar for making wheat flour. Furthermore, the word ground means to grind into smaller pieces, but also denotes from the ground, further indicating that the ground is finely divided rock (minerals), dirt, and dust.


 Deuteronomy 19:14   Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it. (Deuteronomy 27:17, Job 24:2 )


This verse could well apply to mining claim stone markers.


Deuteronomy 28:4   Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.


Fruit of thy ground can indicate harvesting plants, but could also indicate exploiting the minerals/metals. If the fruits of the ground are the metals then this verse declares honor and blessings upon them that practice this form of harvesting the land’s bounty.


Deuteronomy 28:12   The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

Why does this nation create debt (borrow) if it is a nation of biblical believer’s?


Joshua 7:21   When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. (Matthew 25:18, Matthew 25:25)

Hiding spoils (treasure) in the ground has been a time honored practice, which was likely learned from first seeking these same metallic riches, which were hidden in plain sight within the minerals of the ground.


2 Kings 2:15   And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.


Why do men bow towards the ground – is it because man instinctively knows that the ground is what he is and that the metals make up the ground? Yet, at same time man will also cast to the ground that which he does not like nor has use of. Could this last sentence be a form of ego rejecting what he is made of?


1 Kings 9:9   And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.

This verse states to take up with other gods that evil will arrive upon the land. I wonder what happens to the land (nation) that quits YHVH as the prime director?


1 Kings 10:23   So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. (2 Chronicles 9:22)


If King Solomon had so much wisdom then his search for and exploitation of gold and silver must have been of merit with YHVH.


1 Chronicles 16:31   Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.


Could this verse be saying that the earthly metals rejoice in YHVH?

2 Chronicles 7:14   If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,…


Seeking YHVH’s face is certainly a form of prospecting and I suspect that His face can be or is reflected within each and every metal and mineral, which makes up the entirety of creation. Therefore, from my limited perspective prospecting is a noble cause (calling).


Job 12:8   Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.


This is a classic example of communicating with YHVH and His creation. The question is -- what or who teaches? Do not the metals teach man instead of man teaching himself? Man learns from other’s work, but where does knowledge reside? Doesn’t this nebulous subject originate from YHVH and His work, which is none other than the metals?

There’s an old saying that if you want to find gold go where it has been found before. So, to locate truth it would seem wise to seek truth in the Bible as well as YHVH’s foundational metal kingdom.


Job 28:2   Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.

I would take this verse to suggest that the people of this time had a clear understanding that iron ore is not necessarily stone and is a major constituent of the earth/land, further indicating that different prospecting and mining methods were employed.


Job 38:4   Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

Although my biblical views are far out on the edge and likely not shared I think this verse suggests that prior to my existence I was in YHVH’s thoughts, because, if YHVH finished His creation at the conclusion of His 6th day then there is nothing new under the sun and it has all been done whether man realizes it or not. Consequently, if I am partially correct then what I am doing is learning to understand what was completed. However, if YHVH did not finish all His work (creation) then choices abound, but scripture does suggest such. Nevertheless, it is quite likely that few, if anyone completely understands this verse. Nevertheless, serious bible students continue prospecting the term understanding.


Psalms 44:25   For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.

Why would the soul bow down to dust, unless the dust is the metals, which when in combination with each other make-up all creation.


Psalms 66:4   All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

How can the earth worship the Creator if it is not alive? And, what is earth if not land and ultimately all the metals playing host for rock, dirt, and dust?


Psalms 85:11   Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.


Is physical truth the Metals and YHVH oversees all, because He is everything?


Psalms 89:11   The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.


What is the definition of “founded” other than the metals that YHVH created? Where does the word foundry originate if not the metals?


Psalms 104:35   Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. (Ecclesiastes 12:7)


Consumed out of earth hints that man is tried on the earth, as the metals are tried and when purified leaves earth for the heavens and not continue sleeping in the dust.

Isaiah 11:9   They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

Does not full of knowledge suggest the metals, which man constantly seeks, which provides the means of understanding?


Isaiah 37:16   O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.

This verse flat-out states there are other kingdoms. Plus, these other kingdoms are of the earth, not on the earth. So, maybe a kingdom of metals is not all that far-fetched an idea?


Isaiah 40:21   Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?


This verse screams – the metals and not man because man was by conventional wisdom not physically present at the foundation of the earth.


1 Timothy 3:15   But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Does a form of truth reside in the ground (metals)?


Jeremiah 23:24   Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.


For me this is further biblical truth that The Father is everything and everywhere and there is nothing that is not the Father so hiding is an impossibility


Daniel 2:39   And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.


Many have taken this verse to suggest kingdoms of men, especially Babylon and those that followed, such as the holy Roman empire. I can certainly see the reasoning for this conjecture, but if I first take biblical word to mean exactly what it says then I must acknowledge the existence of this 3rd kingdom of brass (copper and zinc or perhaps copper, arsenic, lead and tin). No doubt my line of reasoning will be too difficult to grasp because it goes against customary teachings of past sages.


What if the metals have kingdoms and alliances? What could this verse be uttering regarding biblical interpretations? Are not wars fought by man over natural resources (metals)? Man thinks he is the one who makes war, but, perhaps it is the metals that get man to make war. If so, what would the reasons be for the metals obtaining man’s attention? And, if we continue refusing to hear the subtle articulations of the metals what will the next serious conflict be like?

Matthew 28:18   And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.


Yeshua was given the power that is IN the earth. Could this be the metal kingdom?


Colossians 1:16   For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


Is this more tangible proof that the kingdom of metals are a reality?

Revelations 12:16   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.


If the earth is an infinite array of mineral combinations, then the metals helped this woman.
