Revelation Goes Back to Genesis - How Evil Started

W h a t is B e t w e e n t h e L i n e s

Who, Why, Where, When and How Evil Started
G e n e s i s 1:1-2

Creationism is the religious belief that the universe, the worlds, cosmos, Earth, all vegetation, all animals and mankind, were created by a supernatural being, The God of The Holy Bible.

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Elohim took nothing and made everything by His Bara power, including Heaven and its hosts. Lucifer, one of God’s creations, was assigned to lead in worship of God. Lucifer’s position went to his head. Lucifer was puffed up in pride over his God-given knowledge and aesthetics:

Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness.

Isaiah 14:13-15 records Lucifer’s decision to exalt himself above God’s will:
1. I will ascend into Heaven – Self-will
2. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God – Self-exaltation
3. I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, in the north–Self-enthronement
4. I will ascent above the heights of the clouds – Self- ascension
5. I will be like the Most High – Self-edification

Lucifer rebelled in Heaven, perpetrating war with God, eons before man was created. Revelation 12:4a And his tail drew the third part of the stars of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth.

The Dragon was cast to Earth, drawing 1/3 of Heavens angels. The dragon is a symbolic name given to represent the devil. Satan is also decried as “that old serpent.” He ruled over the fallen angels. The planet became Satan’s established kingdom of darkness. Hebrews records prehistoric history. An astronomical amount of time elapsed between-the-lines of verses 1 and 2 of Genesis.

Sometime following Lucifer’s expulsion from heaven to earth, prehistoric ages witnessed Pangaea; a single giant landmass, Stone Age Beings and The Ice Age. This geological period was over thirteen billion years ago, when dinosaurs, mammoths and pterodactyls roamed this world. We have evidence by the split and drifting of continents, carved out cannons, massive mountains and numerous fossil and bone findings in museums around the world.

After that, Genesis 1:2 the earth was without form, and void, darkness was upon the face of the deep”. The darkness was the evil presence of Lucifer’s rebellious nature. That was the first destruction of the Earth by God. The second time God destroyed the Earth was when the Flood covered the earth n the days of Noah, sparing only eight righteous persons (Genesis 6:8). The third and final fourth are yet to come.

The third destruction will come by fire, after which He will restore all things (Isaiah 65:17-20), and the judgment of fire reserved for the day of Day of Judgment (II Peter 3:4-14). The fourth destruction is described in Revelation 21:1, when creates a new Heaven and new Earth. These prophecies will be described in our study of Revelation chapters 20 -21.

God restored His living creations upon the Earth as described in Genesis chapters one and two. Eden is where man first encountered his arch deceiver, already in the Garden. That evil one’s deception has been so successful that many people scoff at the idea that a devil even exists. The Holy Scriptures reveal him as the unseen driving influence behind wrongdoing and suffering.
