Summary: A look at PreAdam world and PreAdam Desctruction

C. According to Ezekiel 28: 3-6

1. Law of Double Reference -- 11-18 King of Tyre and Satan

Here (vs. 12-15), as in Isa 14:12 the language goes beyond the king of Tyre to Satan, inspirer and unseen ruler of all such pomp and pride as that of Tyre. Instances of thus indirectly addressing Satan are: Gen 3:14, 15; Mat 16:23 The unfallen state of Satan is here described; his fall in Isa 14:12-14 (See Note for Rev 20:10) But there is more. The vision is not of Satan in his own person, but of Satan fulfilling himself in and through an earthly king who arrogates to himself divine honours, so that the prince of Tyrus foreshadows the Beast. Dan 7:8; Rev 19:20 Scofield Notes

2. Facts of Lucifer already discussed

3. v. 13 Eden -- Not Adam's No throne, no cherub in Adam's Eden

The dwelling place of Lucifer was “Eden, the garden of God.” This was not a mere summer residence of some earthly king of Tyre, but the garden of God as referred to in other Old Testament passages. Another Time, Another Place, Another Man pg 42

The Eden described by Ezekiel, however, was not the garden in which God placed Adam, for in Adam’s Eden, “every precious stone” was not the covering of Satan, nor was he the perfect, sinless guardian cherub. Therefore, this must have been a pre-Adamite Eden, the garden that God made was the location of Lucifer’s earthly kingdom, long before Adam walked the Eden of his day. Another Time, Another Place, Another Man pg 42 - 43

4. Iniquity -- Rebellion -- Pride

5. Feud between God and a King (God and Satan)

D. According to Jeremiah 4:23-29

(v. 23) “I beheld the earth, and, lo, [it was] without form, and void; and the heavens, and they [had] no light.”

(v. 24) “I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.”

(v. 25) “I beheld, and, lo, [there was] no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”

(v. 26) “I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [was] a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] by his fierce anger.”

(v. 27) “For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.”

(v. 28) “For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken [it], I have purposed [it], and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.”

(v. 29) “The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city [shall be] forsaken, and not a man

dwell therein.”

1. (v. 23a) "without form and void" --“tohuw va bohuw” Same terminology as Gen 1:2

"The earth became wasted and desolate." -- Chuck Smith

Not just Israel but the earth.

2. (v. 23b) “the heavens, and they [had] no light.” -- not Noah’s flood -- no light

3. (v. 24) “the mountains, and, lo, they trembled” -- Noah’s flood?

4. (v. 25) “[there was] no man” -- not the flood -- Noah and family were present during flood

5. (v. 26) “the fruitful place [was] a wilderness”

Isa 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

Isa 14:17 “[That] made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; [that] opened not the house of his prisoners?”

6. cities broken -- desolate--fierce anger--II Sam. 22:8-15 "He was wroth" Ps.18:8-14

a. v. 10 bowed the heavens -- changed stars and space

b. v. 12 dark waters, and thick cloud

c. v. 15 scattered them

7. Jeremiah 4:29

a. horsemen and bowmen -- angels of God?

b. not a man left

The whole land of Palestine will become desolate, yet I will not make a full end as I did of the social system on earth before Adam's time (in the chaos of Gen. 1:2). The comparison here is that God would make the land of Judah desolate and empty as He had made the once-inhabitated original earth desolate and empty through the chaos of Gen. 1:2, but He would not make a full end of the land as in the curse of the pre-Adamite world. Dake’s Notes

E. According to Peter II Peter 3:3-7

(v. 3) “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,”

(v. 4) “And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”

(v. 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:”
