Eternity’s Past – Part 2

ETERNITY’S PAST – PART 2, LUCIFER’S TIME & FLOOD

I posted "Eternity's Past - Part 1" which was details about BEFORE Adam & Eve. Details about the 6 days of creation and before those 6 days…  Eternity!

Now I want to post about 2 more things:

Lucifer’s time period & the flood of his time, not Noah’s flood.

This info is just as interesting – if not MORE interesting – than the 6 days of creation.

Let’s get started!

LUCIFER

In Ez. 28:11-17, it describes Lucifer before he ‘fell’. He was the anointed cherub or protector of the earth and was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty, blameless in all his ways. He ruled the garden of Eden (before Adam). He was created by God and perfect in all his ways up to the time of his fall. These verses give the reason for his ‘fall’ and the result of his fall.

Isa. 14:12-14 states that Lucifer invaded heaven from earth hoping to defeat God and take His kingdom. But Lucifer himself was defeated and his kingdom cursed. Before his defeat he had a throne and therefore a kingdom and subjects to rule over. His kingdom was under the clouds, under the stars, and under heaven – on earth. He weakened the nations over whom he ruled, and he wanted to be like God and take His place in heaven, Lucifer led the invasion of heaven. All of this was before Adam’s day.

We have to acknowledge that Satan’s fall was before Adam’s time because he was already a fallen creature when he came into Adam’s Eden (Gen. 3, 2Cor. 11:3)

Jesus taught the fall of Satan from heaven in Luke 10:18. When did he fall? Before Adam’s time, because he was already a fallen creature when he came into Adam’s Eden. Why did he fall? Because of his pride and wanting to exalt his earthly kingdom above God’s. What was the result of his fall? All of Satan’s earthly subjects as well as over one third of God’s own angels fell with him (Rev. 12:3, 7-12) <---- The dragon is Satan. Then all nations were totally destroyed, along with vegetation, fish, fowls, and animals (2Pet. 3:5-7).

Jer. 4:23-26:

23I beheld the earth, and indeed it was without form, and void;
      And the heavens, they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled,
      And all the hills moved back and forth.
25 I beheld, and indeed there was no man,
      And all the birds of the heavens had fled.
26 I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness,
      And all its cities were broken down
      At the presence of the LORD,
      By His fierce anger.

CONTRASTS BETWEEN LUCIFER’S FLOOD & NOAH’S FLOOD

Lucifer’s Flood Noah’s Flood
Earth made waste Not made waste
Earth made empty Not made empty
Earth made totally dark Not made totally dark
No light from heaven Light from heaven
No days Days
All vegetation destroyed Vegetation left, not destroyed
No continual abating of waters off earth Continual abating of waters off earth
Waters taken off in one day Waters taken off in months
Supernatural work of taking waters off Natural work of taking waters off the earth
God rebuked the waters No rebuke of waters
Waters hastened away Waters receded gradually
God set bounds for waters Bounds already set
All fish destroyed because of sun with-held from earth No fish destroyed, only land animals – sun not withheld
No fowls left Fowls saved
No animals left Animals saved
No  man left 4 men, 4 women saved
No social system left A social system left
No ark made to save life An ark made to save life
Cause: fall of Satan Cause: man’s wickedness and sin of fallen angels
Result: became necessary to make new fish, fowl, land animals, vegetation, and man Result: no new creations made for all things were saved

{Every single item in this list above has scripture to go along with it, but I didn’t feel like typing & linking it up. So if anyone wants any of those verses, let me know in the comment box below & I will add it}

The flood of Noah lasted over a year, and still vegetation was not destroyed. But in Lucifer’s flood the fruitful place became a wilderness Jer. 4:23-26. New vegetation had to be planted in the 6 days, for the earth was totally desolate (Gen. 1:11-12, 2:5, 8:17) This shows that Lucifer’s flood was on earth longer than Noah’s and, without a doubt, as judgment for a more serious rebellion – a complete rebellion of the “pre-Adamite” world.

{This has nothing to do with eternity’s past, but I’ll say it anyway…}

This is why the rainbow is so important! God put a rainbow in the sky as a promise to Noah to never destroy the earth again with water. The earth had already been destroyed TWICE by flooding! This rainbow was a promise made by God! How awesome is that?!?

  • Genesis 9:13
    I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
  • Genesis 9:14
    Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
  • Genesis 9:16
    Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

    Amazing!

    All of this is amazing! Eternity is amazing! God is amazing!

    So amazing we can’t even comprehend His power.

    All of this & the world doesn’t see it. They want to make up reasons on how the earth was created.

    This is all I have. It’s after midnight here. Maybe tomorrow I will do some editing or add some things. For now, I am beat!
