The Earth before the Garden. I think to adequately discover all of the data concerning the topic there has to be an exhaustive session. There is not much in the Holy Scriptures about the origin of demons but much about their hierarchy and theyâ€™re menacing behavior. There is absolutely nothing in the New Testament about that, but we are told about their existence and observed through the narratives in the Gospel of Jesusâ€™s sovereign power over them. It is my opinion that the Marine Kingdom and its existence is exhibited in the Gospels narratives most popular of these narratives, the man or men called Legion of the Gaderenes and others.
Letâ€™s explore in great detail what we can gather on the topic. We must look at the first book of the bible and the very first chapter.
Genesis 1:2 KJV
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Anywhere that you see the word heaven in the Old Testament it is plural.
This scripture has been discussed concerning the possibility of something happening between Genesis 1;1 and verses 2. That is called the Gap Theory.
This article is about an interpretation of the biblical creation account. For the philosophical argument for God’s existence, see God of the gapsGap creationism (also known as ruin-restoration creationism, restoration creationism, or “the Gap Theory“) is a form of old Earth creationism that posits that the six-yom creation period, as described in the Book of Genesis, involved six literal 24-hour days (light being “day” and dark “night” as God specified), but that there was a gap of time between two distinct creations in the first and the second verses of Genesis, which the theory states explain many scientific observations, including the age of the Earth. It differs from day-age creationism, which posits that the ‘days’ of creation were much longer periods (of thousands or millions of years), and from young-Earth creationism, which although it agrees concerning the six literal 24-hour days of creation, does not posit any gap of time.
Genesis 1:2 describes another time a different account, a world that does not exhibit the perfection by which God does everything, but an earth that has been decimated by a cataclysmic event.
Deuteronomy 32:4 KJV
4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect:
Psalm 111:3 KJV
3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
Isaiah 45:18 KJV
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.
The above scripture indicates that God is a God of excellence and the description of Genesis 1:2 would be contrary to the nature and creative prowess of God. I believe the explanation of genesis 1:2 is a cataclysmic event. Let’s explore the terminology â€œform and void.â€
Formless And Void
Genesis 1:2 describes the earth at the time of the creation as being without form and void or desolate and uninhabitable (Hebrew tohu wa bohu). Are we to assume that a perfect God created the world in a chaotic condition? The phrase without form and void seems to require some type of judgment.
This cataclysmic event has been characterized by many as the fall of satan there are three instances in the bible that talks about this, two Old testament accounts and one New Testament.
Isaiah 14:12-14 KJV
12â€œHow you are fallen from heaven, O [a]Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! 13 For you have said in your heart:
â€˜I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on
the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.â€™
Ezekiel 28:14-18 KJV
14 â€œYou were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. 15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.16 â€œBy the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones. 17 â€œYour heart was [a]lifted up because of your beautyYou corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;I cast you to the ground I laid you before kings, That they might gaze at you.18 You defiled your sanctuaries By the multitude of your iniquities, By the iniquity of your trading; Therefore I brought fire from your midst; It devoured you And I turned you to ashes upon the earth In the sight of all who saw you.
Jeremiah 4:23 KJV
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.25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.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.27 For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
This is the Prophet Jeremiah watching the events that caused the earth to become (tohu wa bohu) God removed Himself as the light producing source and upon recreation he now created the celestial bodies, the Sun, Moon and stars. If the light that warms the earth is removed then there is a sudden ice age. All of the Pre-Adamic civilization and all of the animals died as the earth froze on the same day. The fierce anger of God against the epitome of evil and his rebellion he brought against God as described in Jeremiah 4:23-27 against the Anointed Cherub was displayed this way and all of his recruited acolytes. Remember these beings were not created in the image of God.. All of pre adamic civilization was destroyed.
â€œDinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago (at the end of the Cretaceous Period), after living on Earth for about 165 million years. If all of Earth time from the very beginning of the dinosaurs to today were compressed into 365 days (one calendar year), the dinosaurs appeared January 1 and became extinct the third week of September. (Using this same time scale, the Earth would have formed approximately 18.5 years earlier.) Using the same scale, people (Homo sapiens) have been on earth only since December 31 (New Year’s eve). The dinosaurs’ long period of dominance certainly makes them unqualified successes in the history of life on Earth.â€
Luke 10:18 NKJV
18 And He said to them, â€œI saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Many scholars believe this is the event as described by the prophets Ezekiel, Isaiah and Jesus himself that caused the state of the Earth as described in Genesis 1:2. I believe this is the event described by scientists as the events that destroyed the earth and caused a nuclear winter and all of its inhabitants including the Dinosaurs, dragons and serpents and all of those creatures that are spoken about in places like the book of Job were destroyed but their spirits live on..
All across civilization there have been discovered strange creatures, some with elongated skulls and what common man would consider deformities if compared to modern day humans and their ancestors.
These creatures recruited by satan along with the fallen angels is what makes up the hierarchy of evil according to paul in Ephesians 6:12 KJV
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
In Paul’s epistle to the church at Ephesus he writes.
Ephesians 2:21 NKJV
21 far above all principality[a] and [b]power and [c]might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to behead over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
I believe that there are two sources of the demons: the original pre-adamic spirits of those that were recruited by Satan to war against God and his Holy angel and the second source would b e the disembodied spirits of the Nephalim. In a deliverance session with a spirit that was held at oath against the great white throne admitted such facts that it or he was a disembodied spirit of the nephilim. The Nephalim are the giants that roamed the land and were the offspring of the union of Angels and human women producing a master race, men renowned with superhuman abilities and intellect.
Genesis 6:1-2 NKJV
1Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
Now when God recreated the Earth I don’t believe that these beings were present on the earth as they are today, I don’t have any evidence of what i’m about to say. But I believe upon Adamâ€™s and Eveâ€™s transgression, they Adam abdicated their God given dominion to Satan ushering in all of satan’s kingdoms, including the Marine Kingdom.
Genesis 1:26-28 KJV
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
In the Gospels, in the temptation of Christ Satanâ€™s diatribe with Jesus surely indicates Satanâ€™s Governance of such Kingdoms.
Luke 4:1-13 NKJV
4 Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit [a]into the wilderness, 2 being [b]tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry.3 And the devil said to Him, â€œIf You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.â€4 But Jesus answered him, saying, â€œIt is written, â€˜Man shall not live by bread alone, [c]but by every word of God.â€™ â€5 [d]Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, â€œAll this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. 7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.â€8 And Jesus answered and said to him, [e]â€œGet behind Me, Satan! [f]For it is written, â€˜You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.â€™ â€9 Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, â€œIf You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. 10 For it is written:â€˜He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you,â€™ 11 and, â€˜In their hands they shall bear you up,Lest you dash your foot against a stone.â€™ â€12 And Jesus answered and said to him, â€œIt has been said, â€˜You shall not [g]tempt the Lord your God.â€™ â€13 Now when the devil had ended every [h]temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.
I believe the three sources of demons are the pre-adamic beings, the Nephalim destroyed during the flood and Fallen Angels.
