This article deals with the search for explanations How and why ? for irrational events such as the earth its self ceasing to rotate. Bearing in mind that the Earths Orbit is always in decay and eventually time as we know it will be overturned. So what did happen?
“Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon. So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies. Is this not written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hastened to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded a voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel (Joshua 10:12-14).”
Yes YHWH hears his cry and answers him,in his Geocentric geosystem the sun stood still and did not move until the battle was won. I hold the earth in space lest it fall from the sky through lack of movement and was drawn magnetically into the sun. I hold onto my creation so tightly as I permit my Laws to be suspended, I heard his voice and allow this because I wanted Joshua to be truly recognized as leader.
63 And when they were smiting, the day was declining toward evening, and Joshua said in the sight of all the people, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon, and thou moon in the valley of Ajalon, until the nation shall have revenged itself upon its enemies.
64 And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Joshua, and the sun stood still in the midst of the heavens, and it stood still six and thirty moments, and the moon also stood still and hastened not to go down a whole day.
65 And there was no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened to the voice of a man, for the Lord fought for Israel.
YHWH every where at all times . I am sitting here watching the typos and imperfec spelling of this recorder as I am holding the World in the palms of my hands . The knock on effect hardly caused much remark around the globe since the gods were angry and the people were hunting around for virgins and beasts to sacrifice. Joshua had absolute trust in me, and never doubted his request would be honoured.
There are some Bible students who see this account as being a poetical description of the battle and not to be taken literally. Donald H. Madvig notes:
The final statement in this verse clearly favors the notion that the sun stood still or that it slowed down its course across the sky. In either event the problem for geophysics are so great that some other solution has been eagerly sought by scholars both liberal and conservative (Donald H. Madvig, “Joshua,” The Expositors Bible Commentary, Frank E. Gaebelein, General editor, Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1992, p. 303). Do read it is interesting if you like fairy tails and?…..
Did the Sun really stand still in Joshua’s time. They get all hot under their collars when they don’t want Me to be Me.
I Spoke the World, I hold it in being, nothing is impossible for me, there is nothing that happens without my Presence. .repeating myself. It is me! YHWH the Logos I speak and it is, yet humans are desperate to remove my Words since they cannot accept that the Sun and Moon stood still yet the world spins, for it must else-wise fall from my hands. I do not do that.
Part of the Song of Joshua
Jasher 89:8 The sun and moon stood still in heaven, and thou didst stand in thy wrath against our oppressors and didst command thy judgments over them.
