Brief History& a Safe Place
This study is going to shed some light on some Angels that oppose you. These are fallen Angels that are set to cause you to turn from God and stop you from enjoying all the benefits of being a child of God.
Gen.1: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
IN THE BEGINNING
When was it?
Religionists say it was 6000 years ago; it can be documented by history that the beginning was 6000 years ago. The Bible records Adam and Eve as the first people.
Scientist say the beginning was 15 billion years ago. Carbon dating and fossils can prove it.
The only Reliable source that we have is the Word of God.
God, who was before the beginning, inspired the Word of God and has plenty to say on that subject.
The Bible seems to support more like 15 billion years.
This study may blow your theology about the Beginning.
This has nothing to do with Salvation but it does have to do with the quality of life that you can enjoy here.
Gen.1: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
When we read “The heaven and The earth” it seems clear to me that if Earth is a planet then Heaven must also be a planet.
We know heaven is a real place where God’s throne is and is a place beyond compare in its beauty.
Earth is where the Image and likeness of God was created
These were the center of Gods focus but we also know other planets and solar systems were created at the same time.
When The Heaven and The Earth were created Angels were watching and rejoicing.
Job 38: 1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said
2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare if thou hast understanding.
5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest or who hath stretched the line upon it?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Job had been complaining about the way he had been treated. Then God asked Job where was he when the foundations of the Earth were laid and the Angels rejoiced.
The Angels were created before The Earth, and were set in ranks, and order to rule over the creation. One rank is Seraphim with 6 wings that worship around the throne.
One rank is cherubim that ruled over the Earth with 3 “Leading” Rulers or Archangels Michael =a warring Angel, Gabriel= messenger Angel and Lucifer= leader of worship and praise and only second to God.
They make appearances as young men without wings. See Gen. 18:2,16 and Heb.13: 2.
Gen. 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep., There is a time gap between Gen.1:1 and 2, how long we don’t know.
Does God create anything without form and void? The answer is, No.
It is fallacy to think that an all-powerful God would create something halfway or something in chaos and darkness.
Isa.45: 18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited I am the LORD; and there is none else.
God created the heavens and earth not in vain but he did form it to be inhabited.
The fact of an inhabited world before Gen.1:2 is proven in 2Pet.3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.. Verse 5 refers to the original creation in Gen.1:1 which was dry land. Verse 6 reveals that this world perished and verse 7 reveals the heavens and the earth, which are now.
God gave us more insight by allowing his prophet Jeremiah to see the chaotic state of Gen.1:2.
In Jer.4: 23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled and all the hills moved lightly
