The earth is made of vapour and dust.
Q. How do you know the earth is made of vapour and dust?
Man was made from the earth.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed in his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7
Man is made of vapour and dust.
His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Psalm 146:4
But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume
into smoke shall they consume away. Psalm 37:20 Smoke is vapour..Acts 2:19
If man was made from the earth, and man is made of vapour and dust, then, the earth is made of vapour
The earth can become vapour.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with
a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein
shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy
conversation and godliness. 2 Peter 3:10,11
The earth can become liquid.
And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as
the waters that are poured down a steep place. Micah 1:4
The earth can become rock.
When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together? Job 38:28
Rock can be broken by force.
Is not my word like fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah
Heat causes rock to melt.
Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of stone. Job 28:2
When rock (liquid) is heated it boils and See Youngs, boiled..rathach..Job 41:31 (bubbles) about.
He looketh on the earth and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills and they smoke. Psalm 104:32
Smoke is vapour.
And I will show wonders in the heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour
of smoke. Acts 2:19
Smoke (vapour) comes from things that are boiling and bubbling about.
Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. Job 41:20
Inside of the earth is hot.
As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire. Job 28:5
Things that are burning (on fire) stop burning.
Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. Proverbs
If the inside of the earth is fiery, then, there was a time when the entire earth was on fire, and the fiery
earth started to cool down, and a crust formed on the surface of the earth, but the liquids inside of the
earth were still boiling and bubbling about, and heat, and pressure, from the boiling and bubbling liquids
that could no longer escape through the crust of the earth caused the surface of the earth to swell
(stretch), and the crust of the earth cracked, as was broken into, gigantic pieces of earth called plates.
Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh
all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; Isaiah 44:24
