Q: Genesis 1:2, was the
earth "created" void or did it "become" void ?
A key to understanding this
verse is the word "was
" and a Concordance. Gen
1:2 And the earth was
without form, and void; ...
- it's not that the earth "was"
created without form and void, nor was it created in vain but that it "became"
this way, a wasteland.
- To confirm
this we will use a Strong's Concordance for the word "was"
primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass
(always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): -
beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break,
cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last,
pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
- We find
a possible knugget of understanding in Isaiah 45:18
where God is telling us about earth's creation, how He did "not" create
it and the condition it was created.
- Isaiah 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. (KJV)
are some interesting facts don't you think, to some this is and will be "new"
revelation. Take note of Matthew
are many areas of Scripture that will make much more sense when having this knowledge
and understanding of these facts in your quiver.
little knuggets of knowledge
builds on understanding the workings of God.
Earth was created ready for populating
so then what actually did happened? (Gen 1:2)
became a wasteland, void of everything, in fact the very foundation of the word
was shaken by an event. This event is known
as the overthrow, the casting down of Satan.. Appendix 146 of the Companion
Bible is a good and edifying study of the overthrow.
The earth "became" void, so how did this happen and why ?
A key is a topical study on the "Katabole
foundation, to cast down, overthrow
- The katabole was the overthrow, the casting down of Satan -
of the Companion Bible for a lite study on this topic
to help you with understanding.
- The katabole could be identified as the event/results process
of Satan's fall - caused by pride and free will.
- Satan was once called the "The anointed
cherub that covereth" Ezekiel
- Isaiah 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!
- Lucifer or
what ever you want to call him, Satan was create the most perfect
of God' angels, being/entity.
Points for Ponderance
In the Garden, sometime after the katabole, what happened there ?
A key is knowing that there was no literal "fruit" or tree
- The "tree"
spoke of in the Garden, the tree of the knowledge of Good & Evil was NO
- Gen 2:17 But
of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in
the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
of the folks think Adam and Eve "sinned" in the Garden.
I do not believe so, at least not in the conventional sense
as we understand sin. This sin was different. I believe they "sinned"
because they did not yield the warning.
is sin? Sin is transgressing the "law"
was the "law" given? During the time of Moses, which came centuries
after the Garden.
was a sin prior to the "law" Romans
5:12 Notice how this sin involved all mankind.
not your standard sin now is it. A thought for your ponderance, if someone else
sins should you be held accountable for their sin, of
believe that God was giving Adam and Eve a warning. Satan
was attempting to contaminate the bloodline through which Christ would one day
come. Once again attempting to thwart God and His throne.
go back and pondering Gen 2:17 for a bit, using discernment,
apply reasoning and "common sense" and think, think with wisdom and
- The logic: how does a "tree" get knowledge? It doesn't,
it wasn't a tree, it was Satan
What was the actual reason for the flood of Noah's time ?
A key is understanding
the need to protect the bloodline
- To understand this we need to take a look at what was happening
during this time period. Let's start by taking a look at Genesis
"That the sons of God saw the
daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives
of all which they chose."
- AND the results of these unions is found in
6:4 Who were these giants? Geber, the offspring
of a union between Nephilim, fallen angels and human women.
- These are the fallen angels that left their place in heaven,
1:6 coming to earth and mixing with the
human females, their offspring were giants, the geber.
- Lets take a look at Deuteronomy
7:1 - 4 clik here then ponder, meditate on this and
pray God will give you understanding asto just what He is telling
us then review the content of the next bullet "The Logic"
- The logic: Reason these additional Scripture verses |
13:31 - 33 |
2:10 -11 &
Chronicles 20:4 -5 |
- The "fruit"
- Cain is NOT in Adam's genealogy, why? Because Adam is NOT his
