  1. After the original creation of the heavens and the Earth and all things therein, the Kingdom of God was universal, and God was all-in-all without one creature lifting up a finger of rebellion against Him. Everyone was willingly subject to His sovereign will and was walking in perfect obedience to God and His moral law. Each ruler and each one of his subjects of every kingdom in the universe was faithful in his personal responsibility and consecrated to the highest good of being and of the universe. No free moral agent acted from his own will in selfishness or apart from the will of the creator, and everything was in harmony and perfection. How long this condition remained is not known, and all speculation is valueless. A rebellion was started by the angelic ruler of the Earth who conceived the idea and boldly attempted to carry out his plan to dethrone God and become the supreme ruler of the universe. From here on, the Bible reveals that the Earth was made perfect and inhabited two times; that there have been two universal rebellions on the Earth; and that the Earth had two sinful careers. It records two past curses on the Earth and reveals that the Earth will be made new one more time; that righteousness will dwell on Earth forever; and that God will become all-in-all again, as He was before rebellion was started by Lucifer and Adam (1 Cor. 15:24-28; Rev. 21-22; 2 Pet. 3:13; Isa. 65:17; 66:22-24). Earths First Sinful Career (Gen. 1:2; Isa. 14:1-14; Jer. 4:23-26; Ezek. 28:11-17; 2 Pet. 3:5-6) Moses' Teaching on the overthrow of the Pre-Adamite World In Gen. 1:1 we have the fact that the Earth was in existence before the spirit of God began to move (brood) upon the face of the waters which covered the Earth. The conjunction "and" is used to connect about 200 separate acts of God in Gen. 1 and 2. These acts are all equally independent and important. Verse 2 is as independent of verse 1 as are all other separate acts of God in these two chapters. In verse 1 we have the original creation of the heavens and the Earth, and in verse 2, we have the original perfect Earth made chaos and flooded with water which destroyed all life on the Earth. The word "was" in verse 2 is from the Hebrew hayah, which is a verb to become, not the verb to be. It is translated 67 times (Gen. 2:7; 19:26; 20:12; 24:67; Ex. 4:3-4; Num. 12:10; etc); becamest (1 Chron. 17:22; Ezek. 16:8); came and come to pass 505 times (Gen. 4:3; 6:1-, 4; 11:2, 5; etc.); come and come to pass 131 times (Gen. 4:14; 6:13; 18-20; 27:40; etc.); and many times be in the sense of become (Gen. 1:3, 6, 9, 14; 3:5; etc.). The phrase without form is from the Hebrew tohu, which means waste, desolation. or confusion. It is translated waste (Deut. 32:10); without form (Gen. 1:2; Jer. 4:23); vain (Isa. 45:18; 1 Sam. 12:21); confusion (Isa. 24:10; 34:11; 41:29); empty (Job. 26:7); vanity (Isa. 40:17, 23; 44:9; 59:4); nothing (Job. 6:18; Isa. 40:17); and wilderness (Job. 12:24; Ps. 107:40). It can be seen from these passages what the word really means and what the condition of the Earth was in Gen. 1:2. God did not originally create the Earth in such a waste and ruined state. It is definitely stated in Isa. 45:18 that God did not create the Earth tohu (vain or desolate), yet in Gen. 1:2 the Earth was tohu. If the Earth was not originally created desolate, then it must have bee created inhabited, and later became desolate. Even the English verb was proves that it had to become desolate before it could be desolate. The Hebrew word for void is bohu, which means empty, ruin or void. Its is translated void (Gen. 1;2; Jer. 4:23) and emptiness (Isa. 34:11). The Hebrew phrase tohu va bohu (waste and ruin, or desolate and empty) describes the chaotic condition since "the beginning" and before the six days of the reconstruction of Gen. 1:3-2:25. God did not create the Earth a ruin or a waste. It became so because of sin. We can read Gen. 1;1 literally thus: "In the beginning[by periods, ages] God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth became wast and ruin [desolate and empty]; and darkness was upon the face of the deep [the flood]. And the Spirit of God moved [brooded] upon the face of the waters." In these verses we have the whole span of the creative ages taking in all the original creation of the heavens and the Earth and all things therin to the six days of restoration of the Earth to a habitable state. The original creations include the sun, moon, and stars. In these verses alone we have the fact that in the dateless past God created the heavens, including the sun, moon and stars, and the Earth; that the heavens were created before the Spirit began to brood over the waters; and that these things were already in existence before the first of six the six days, proving that they were not created in any one of those days. How long the Earth was a waste and a ruin or desolate and empty since its original habitation is not known. How long it was in existence and inhabited before it became desolate and empty is not known, but why and when it was cursed and became desolate is known and clearly revealed in Scripture. In Scripture all cases of obscuring the sun and bringing consequent darkness, and all cases of floods are a result of judgment and never of an act of creation, unless it be Gen. 1:2; and we have no authority on which to believe that this is an exception. Why could not Gen. 1:2 be the result of a curse, as is clear of all other floods and darkness on the Earth as revealed in Gen. 6:8; Ex. 10:21-23; Isa. 5:30; 13:10; Jer. 4:23-26; Amos 5:18-20; Zeph. 1:15; Joel 2:30-3:16; Matt. 8:12; 9:2; 16:10). The fact that Moses by inspiration said that God told Adam to multiply and replenish the Earth proves that there was a social system on the Earth before Adam, for he could not replenish something that had not been plenished before. Some argue that the Hebrew word for replenish means fill and not refill, but this proves nothing. An examination of all places where the word replenish is used disproves this. Suppose we make the word replenish mean plenish in Gen. 9:1; Isa. 2:6; 23:2; Jer. 31:25; Ezek. 26:2; 27:25, and note the results. Where the Hebrew mala is translated fill, it does not mean that the thing referred to had ever been filled before. For example, when Joseph commanded his brethren to "fill their sacks," does this mean that those sacks had never been filled before? They had no doubt been filled many times. See Gen. 42:25; 44:1; 1 Kings 18:33; Hag. 2:7; etc. To say "Fill that glass with water," does not prove it had never been filled before, but to say "Refill that glass with water," proves that it had been filled before. When God said to Noah, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth" (Gen. 9:1), it is clear that the Earth had been plenished before, so why not believe that God meant the same thing when He said it to Adam? The same Hebrew statement is found in both passages (Gen. 1:28; 9:1), and it is translated exactly the same in English, so would it be wrong to believe that it means the same thing? If the Earth had been plenish before Adam, then it was overthrown by judgment before the six days, as shown in Gen. 1:2.
  2. Explain these Scriptural differences! There were two great floods on the Earth. The first where God destroyed His original creation because of Lucifers rebellion, and the second, Noah's flood because of mans rebellion. Lucifers flood, everything was destroyed, all life, no light, the earth made empty and void. Noah's flood, all life was not destroyed. Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives were left alive, plus all animals and the sun and moon was not prevented from giving light. Here are all the Scriptures proving this occurred, read them for yourself then believe them or not?? Noahs flood which I will post as . 'N.F.' Lucifers flood, L.F. L.F.

N.F. Results: no new creation made, for all men and animals were not destroyed (Gen. 6:18-8 : 22 ; 9:1-16). The original creations of God include the heavens and the Earth and all things therein as first brought into being. This period is summed up in Gen. 1:1. thus: "In the beginning God created the heaven [Hebrew, heavens] and the earth." This refers to the dateless past, and takes in only a part of the creative ages, that is, from the beginning of creation until the chaotic period of Gen. 1:2 when the Earth and its first inhabitants were destroyed by the first flood. Notice during Noahs flood not all inhabitants , vegetation, animals, day, night were destroyed. There are many other passages in Scripture that refer to that period (Job. 38; Ps. 8:3-8; 19:1-6; Prov. 8:22-31; John 1:3,10; Acts 17:24-26; Col. 1:15-18; Heb. 1:1-12; 11:3; Rev. 4:11). I'll post more tomorrow, I have to leave.
  3. The leader of the Scottish Anglican church has said he was “deeply distressed” at the “widespread offence” caused by a reading from the Qur’an at a service to mark the feast of the Epiphany at St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow. David Chillingworth, bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane, and primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, said in a statement: “We also deeply regret the widespread abuse which has been received by the cathedral community.” He has launched a review of interfaith work. His comments followed a row over the inclusion in the service of passages from the Qur’an read in Arabic from the cathedral’s lectern by a local Muslim student. The cathedral said it was part of efforts to build relationships between Christians and Muslims in Glasgow. The student, Madinah Javed, 19, read from the book of Maryam, which tells the story of Jesus’s birth. It includes the Islamic teaching that Jesus was not the son of God. Muslims, however, revere Jesus as a prophet. The reading triggered a backlash. The former bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, said: “Christians should know what their fellow citizens believe and this can include reading the Qur’an for themselves, whether in the original or in translation. This is not, however, the same thing as having it read in church in the context of public worship. The authorities of the Scottish Episcopal Church should immediately repudiate this ill-advised invitation and exercise appropriate discipline for those involved.” The cathedral said it became the target of offensive messages on social media, which it reported to the police. Last week, a Police Scotland spokesman said: “We can confirm we are investigating reports of offensive comments made towards St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow and inquiries are ongoing. Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of hate and encourages all communities to work together to ensure no one feels threatened or marginalised.” The cathedral’s provost, Kelvin Holdsworth, defended the reading, saying similar events had “happened a number of times in the past in this and in other churches, and have led to deepening friendships locally, to greater awareness of the things we hold in common and to dialogue about the ways in which we differ”. The statement from the bishop said the Scottish Episcopal Church had a long commitment to interfaith work. “Over many years, we have sought to develop friendship, understanding and mutual respect between our Christian faith and the other great world religions,” he said Chillingworth added: “Those who seek to work in the area of interfaith relationships must weigh carefully whether the choices which they make are appropriate or otherwise. In today’s world, those judgments must give careful consideration to good relationships which have been carefully nurtured over many years in a local context. They must also weigh carefully the way in which national and international issues shape perceptions of what is appropriate or inappropriate. “The decisions which have led to the situation in St Mary’s Cathedral are a matter for the provost and the cathedral community but the Scottish Episcopal Church is deeply distressed at the widespread offence which has been caused. We also deeply regret the widespread abuse which has been received by the cathedral community.” Chillingworth said the church would bring together “all those who are involved in the development of interfaith relations ... to explore how, particularly in the area of worship, this work can be carried forward in ways which will command respect”. http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/bishop-distressed-by-row-following-quran-reading-at-cathedral/ar-AAlT7MY?li=AA5249&ocid=spartanntp
  4. In Your opinion only. ("poppycock?") I got what you call poppycock from God's Holy Word! If you think God's Word is poppycock, that's your problem. There were two great floods on the Earth. The first where God destroyed His original creation because of Lucifers rebellion, and the second, Noah's flood because of mans rebellion. Lucifers flood, everything was destroyed, all life, no light, the earth made empty and void. Noah's flood, all life was not destroyed.

N.F. Results: no new creation made, for all men and animals were not destroyed (Gen. 6:18-8 : 22 ; 9:1-16).
  5. God the Father was not made flesh, The Word, who was with God the Father became flesh. The Word was a member of the Godhead which consists of the Father, the Word, now Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. John 1:1-4, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2, The same was in the beginning with God. 3, All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4, In him was life; and the life was the light of men. The Word became flesh; John 1:14, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
  6. Sure, I'd be happy to oblige. The answer is to be found in the fact that this "laying of the foundations and the corner stone" in Job 38:4-6 is NOT the original Creation of this earth! It's the RE-CREATION of this earth AFTER the Flood! I agree, but Adam was not created before the pre-Adamite flood, he was created during the re-creation and restoration of the Earth for man in Gen. 1:27, on day 6.
  7. That's what I said. "Really? Ask the homeowners who have lost their homes in fires." Yes, "Really." Those beautiful homes burnt down in fires were changed from beautiful homes to a huge pile of ash! They never ceased to exist, they were not removed, they were changed from one substance to another. Home + fire = ash.
  8. The present Heaven and Earth will not pass out of existence. This idea is the result of a superficial reading of 2 Pet. 3:10-13 and Rev. 20:11; 21:1. 2 Pet. 3:10-13 as it reads, does not convey the idea that the present Heaven and Earth will be annihilated. In fact fire does not cause anything to cease to exist. Fire can merely change something from one condition to another, or renovate and cleanse, as the case may be. Peter shows that there will be a renovation of the Earth by fire and that future renovation will not blot out the Earth any more than did the destruction of the world by water in the beginning. These facts alone prove that the atmospheric heavens and the Earth, "which are now," will never cease to exist, but will be merely renovated by fire and exist in a renewed state; wherein dwelleth righteousness. Rev. 21-22 proves that the New Earth will be after the Millennium . It was not until after the 1,000years reign of Christ and His saints, the last rebellion of Satan and man against God that the destruction of the rebels, and the last resurrection and final judgment that John said, "And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away . . . . and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
  9. I posted; Job 38: 4, Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast2 understanding. Job 38: 5, Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Job 38: 6, Whereupon are the foundations3 thereof fastened ? or who laid the corner stone thereof; .
  10. God is not the author of sin sickness disease or BO. Instead of blaming God for your trivial problems, first go and buy your self a good deodorant or an antiperspirant, and use it every time you take a bath or shower. Wash your body. If you find that you are a bit smelly, hop in the shower if you have the time. Body odor is created by bacteria that cause you to smell, so rinsing your body (and the part that smells worst in particular) can help to get rid of the smell quickly. However, it’s important to use soap or an antibacterial detergent when you wash yourself, rather than just rinsing with water. When you shower, focus on your underarms and your feet, as those are two of the biggest body odor areas. Apply an over-the-counter antiperspirant. Antiperspirants form a block using certain chemicals (like aluminum) against sweating and perspiration, which helps to eliminate body odor. Many of these antiperspirants last all day, but you may need to reapply, especially if you've been doing something like exercising. Unlike a deodorant, antiperspirants actually eliminate the perspiration, while deodorant simply masks the smell.
  11. .
  12. Gen. 8:22, While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
  13. "sons of God shouted for joy." These were angels (Job 38:7. Man was not yet created before God laid the cornerstone and the foundations of the Earth. Job 38: 4, Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast2 understanding. Job 38: 5, Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Job 38: 6, Whereupon are the foundations3 thereof fastened ? or who laid the corner stone thereof; Again, Man was not yet created before God laid the cornerstone and the foundations of the Earth. Job 1:6, Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among6 them. Job 2:1, Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. Men do not present themselves before the Lord Gen. 6:1-2, 1, And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. These sons of God were angels. Seth did not have a son until 235 years after creation, and his sons did not have a son until 325 years after creation (Gen. 5:3, 6:9). Where did these sons of God come from? They could not have been sons of Seth, for these marriages took place when men began to multiply - in the very beginning of the race before Seth had sons of marriageable age. The term "Sons of God proves they were a product of God, not Seth. They were the fallen angels of 1 Peter 3:19; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6-7. Jude 6, And the angels which kept not their first estate,10 but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Jude 7, Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange11 flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. "The morning stars." These are the infinite suns out in space which are suns to other planets like our sun is to our earth and its related planets. This passage proves that the whole of the heavens was created before the earth itself or these stars would not have been singing when God laid the foundations of the earth (V. 7). That the material creations do sing and speak their own languages is plainly stated in Ps.19 and many other scriptures. In fact, all creations have some means of communication with one another and with God and man. This will be more in evidence after the curse is removed from all creation (Rom. 8:21-24; Rev. 22:3). "sons of God shouted for joy." These were angels (Job 38:7 ; Job 1:6 ; Job 2:1)
  14. In the papers today! ‘The end of the world is nigh’ A 500-YEAR-OLD prophecy made by the “Italian Nostradamus” appears to be coming true. It doesn’t end very well. Doom and gloom, Satan at work again. The iconic picture of Virgin Mary shedding tears again, signs of the end of the world. Its a pity they don't read and believe the Bible. God says the world will never end. Apocalypse signs from ‘Italian Nostradamus’ reveal themselves 500 years later January 12, 201712:05pm.
