Godsplan the second earth age or Flesh age.
OK; now that we can see that there was an earth age before this one, chronologically transpiring between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, let's examine why there had to be the second age. (Our present one, this flesh age). There is very little written of that first earth age, but we will examine a couple of places where it is spoken of. The key to understanding that there was an earth age before this one, is in understanding why God destroyed that first earth age and created this one. God does not do anything without a reason, and in understanding why He destroyed that first earth age we can know; with a surety, that it did in fact; once exist.
Genesis 1:1 - 1:5:
Gen 1:1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Hebrew has 'eth' before heaven and earth, emphasising each "the" article before both. This treatment makes a distinction between the state of the earth in Genesis 1:2. In other words, as we'll find out in the next verse, this creation of the heaven (heavens, plural in the Hebrew), and the earth, is the very first forming of the universe by God (Elohiym here in Hebrew).
When God accomplished this, no one truly knows how long ago, but scientists can document that this old earth is literally thousands and thousands of years old. There is no disagreement here with God's Word.1
Gen 1:2 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.
This word 'Spirit' is 'ruwach' in Hebrew, and it means 'wind, by resemblance breath' (Strong's no. 7307). This is when God's Spirit 'spoke', starting the cleansing of that state of 'ruin' and began this earth age (Flesh Age) we are now in. This act is also referred to in...
You'll also see this 'ruwach' translated as the 'four winds' in several places in the King James Version.
I call your attention to this phrase "the face of the waters". The word 'face' is simply the Hebrew word 'paniym' meaning 'in the presence of' (Strong's 6440). God's Spirit was before the presence of the waters. This is important, because you'll find there is no mention of God creating earth matter past Genesis 1:1. These "waters" were outstretched over the whole earth, covering all of it, and that's how God destroyed the earth that then was; that time of old; to end Satan's rebellion. Even at this verse, the earth is still under all those "waters".
Gen. 1:3 And God said, "Let there be light:" and there was light.
Gen. 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen. 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Many of you may not understand this, but, this 'light' and 'darkness' here, is not the dividing of a 24-hour period that we all know in this life. You'll notice that God didn't create the separation between earth 'day' and 'night' yet, that is to say, the star called our 'sun' and the planet that orbits the earth called the 'moon', until,
Gen.1: 14. And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years
We're still here in Gen.1:5 and on the first 'day' or God's period of time
2 Peter 3:8. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Notice that 'Day' and 'Night' are in capitals. Here in verse 5, 'Day' and 'Night' should be understood as separations between 'good' and 'evil'; i.e. Christ and Satan, for Christ is that Light, and Satan is that 'darkness'. Well how can this be, you may ask? Turn with me to Isaiah 60:19:
Isa 60:19. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
Isa 60:20. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
Hey, this hasn't happened yet friend! It's too bad that many refuse to believe that there will be no 'sun' or 'moon' in the LORD's eternity.
I guess God's Word is just too 'far out' for them. This is mentioned again in. The People on the New Earth (Introversion)
Rev.21 1, 2: Visions (heavens & earth etc) 3-8 Voices. 9-22, 5. Visions (the bride) Read All.
Rev.22 Pure water of life; i.e. living water; out of the throne of the great Priest- King of the thousand years now gives place to the glorious throne of God and the Lamb for God is now, “all-in-all”.
The eternity, or last earth age will be the 'putting back' of the original state, which God made His creation, therefore, in that first earth age, there was no 'sun' or 'moon', because God was that 'Light'. There was no 'darkness', literally!
Try to imagine dividing 'time' when you don't have a sun or moon, no sunlight, no moonlight, only 'Light'. You have to think with your spiritual mind to understand this.
You can go on a long philosophical trip to nowhere thinking about this with the 'flesh' mind. The flesh can't comprehend it. That's why our Father hid this message about the three earth ages from those who don't care to work in our Father's Word. Chances are, unless you dig for yourselves in The Word, checking me out, you won't get It either. Nor will you get it just by asking someone else.
I'm going to stop here for now. Here's an assignment if you’re interested: Read the
following sections and verses to understand more about this 'Light' talked about here in Genesis 1:3 through 1:5.
1 John 1:5: This then is the message we have now heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
Job 38: 19 - Light; 19-21 Darkness things pertaining to both the earth and the heavens.
