 John Darby & Cyrus I. Scofield's "Habitable Earth/World" Doctrine

Habitable means "capable of being inhabited; that may be inhabited." In these latter days, who determines which parts of the earth are habitable? The United Nations Division for Sustainable Development--Agenda 21. They are working to bring what they have determined to be the habitable portions of the world under the control of a ruling elite. (And yes, the "Intelligence" that led John Darby in his bible translation and C. I. Scofield in his marginal-note alterations knew all about Sustainable Development...long before the general public knew of any such plans.)

John Nelson Darby changed bible doctrine by modifying the words, earth and world with the word, "habitable." (Cyrus Ingerson Scofield followed suit in his 1917 Scofield Reference Bible.) As you read the verses in the John Darby Version in which he inserted the word, "habitable," you will discover how this not only altered Bible doctrine--including Jesus Christ's command of where the gospel is to be preached--but this word also served to pave the way for the acceptance of the doctrine of Sustainable Development by those who otherwise would be most resistant to it:

                                   Bible-believing Christians

Darby Version: Matthew 24:14 And these glad tidings of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole habitable earth, for a witness to all the nations, and then shall come the end.  [KJV: In all the world] 

Scofield's Marginal note: Margin: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

The real Bible (KJV 1611) says the gospel shall be preached in all the world. John Darby chose to have his "bible" say "these glad tidings shall be preached in the whole habitable earth."

it is chilling to contemplate that the "Intelligence" that led John Darby to translate the Bible in this manner was well aware that one day the United Nations Division For Sustainable Development would impose upon the world's population their determination of which parts of the earth are habitable.

Darby Version: Luke 2:1 But it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census should be made of all the habitable world. [KJV: all the world] 

Scofield's Marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth.

Scofield's footnote comment on Luke 2:1:

Gr. "oikoumene"= "inhabited earth." This passage is noteworthy as defining the usual N.T. use of oikoumene as the sphere of Roman rule at its greatest extent, that is, of the great Gentile world-monarchies Da 2:7. That part of the earth is therefore peculiarly the sphere of prophecy.

John Darby's frequent use of the globalist buzz phrases, "habitable world" and "habitable earth" in his Bible translation and Scofield's use of "inhabited earth" in his footnotes imparts the message that God originated the doctrine of Sustainable Development! (Actullly, it was Satan, the god of the One World Church and One World Government who originated the habitable earth/world doctrine.)

Darby Version: Luke 4:5 And the devil, leading him up into a high mountain, shewed him all the kingdoms of the habitable world in a moment of time. [KJV: kingdoms of the world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

Darby Version: Luke 21:26 men ready to die through fear and expectation of what is coming on the habitable earth, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
[KJV: earth]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth.

John Darby and Cyrus Scofield limited the scope of the terrible things that would come upon the earth at the return of Jesus Christ by adding the word, "habitable" to earth. According to Darby's and Scofield's "habitable earth" rendering of these verses, only the areas (in which Agenda 21 has) designated as habitable will come under the judgment of God.

Darby Version: Acts 17:31 because he has set a day in which he is going to judge the habitable earth in righteousness by the man whom he has appointed, giving the proof of it to all in having raised him from among the dead. [KJV: the world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth.

According to the Darby Bible and Scofield's marginal notes, God will judge only the habitable earth in righteousness. Darby changed the Bible doctrine of God's judgment of the world to the NWO-correct judgment of habitable earth.


Darby Version: Romans 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yea, surely, Their voice has gone out into all the earth, and their words to the extremities of the habitable world. [KJV:  the world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

Darby Version: Hebrews 1:6 and again, when he brings in the firstborn into the habitable world, he says, And let all God's angels worship him.
[KJV: the world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

Darby Version: Hebrews 2:5 For he has not subjected to angels the habitable world which is to come, of which we speak;
[KJV: the world to come]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

Darby Version: Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, *I* also will keep thee out of the hour of trial, which is about to come upon the whole habitable world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. [KJV: all the world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

Darby Version: Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent, he who is called Devil and Satan, he who deceives the whole habitable world, he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. [KJV: the whole world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

According to John Darby's allegedly "very literal" bible translation and Scofield's marginal-note-altered KJV, the devil conforms to the "UN blueprint for global transformation." (1) Considering the fact that Satan is behind the heinous plan to force the world's population into restricted zones which can be most easily managed by Antichrist's regime, it is disconcerting that John Darby and Cyrus Scofield included this brazen marking in their foundational works—The John Darby Version and the 1909 and 1917 Scofield Reference Bible.


Darby Version: Revelation 16:14 for they are the spirits of demons, doing signs; which go out to the kings of the whole habitable world to gather them together to the war of that great day of God the Almighty. [KJV: the whole world]

Scofield's marginal note: oikoumene = inhabited earth. (Lk. 2:1)

John Darby's and Cyrus Scofield's insertion of the word, "habitable" into key Bible verses supports and legitimizes the United Nations' plan to designate certain portions of the earth as habitable (the areas in which they can most easily control the population) while the rest is uninhabitable. The habitable earth/world doctrine is only one of occult markings Darby and Scofield made to Holy Bible via direct text and marginal note alterations. (Another doozy is C.I. Scofield's use of the occult term at-one-ment in his Reference Bible.
