Try God: What really happened between Genesis 1 and 2? (Part 3)


A few years ago a woman stood in front of me declaring she was a “self-made woman.” As she reveled in listing off her accomplishments to me it was evident she truly believed she had gotten where she was in life all on her own. No doubt she was high on the ladder of success.

As I listened intently to her ego boasting words, she realized I was quiet. When she finally shut up, I responded, “That must be nice. Knowing you made it all by yourself. I have no idea what that is like.”

Shocked by my words she added how few had helped her along the way, but that she had done the work. It was clear standing in her way of reaching the top was not something she was going to let anyone do.

This sense of “I did it my way” is a direct notion of self-reliance. People who don’t need people are self-serving but people who don’t need God are destined to crash.  A trick of the devil maybe?

Genesis 1: 1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

The earth was formless, empty and dark? In the beginning? God isn’t capable of darkness or creating void.

What if the earth had been around for a very long time before light was created?

Maybe God had given the earth to satan to rule before he so ignorantly fell from grace.

Imagine this: God throws Satan out of heaven for his evil pride to earth. While Satan is here he creates cities, darkness, emptiness, evil, and beasts, ugly creatures that roamed those cities, cavemen and dinosaurs? He was still empowered to create at that time, but everything he touched became evil. It was a darkened world condition and system.

Isaiah 45:18 says God did not create the world in vain. The Hebrew for “vain” means “worthless mess” or “worthless waste.” The blueprint God had in the beginning resulted in a chaotic, void demonic system.Noah

So…..what happens next? God is unhappy with this worthless government Satan built and decides to remove it. How?

The first flood. Theory here is there were 2 floods and Noah’s was the 2nd.

A government system is localized which would indicate part of the earth; not all of it.

How did Noah get all those animals; 2 of each in that Ark? The Ark landed after the flood on the top of Mt. Ararat. This mountain is not the highest on the face of the earth. If that is true which the Bible says it is, then there were other mountains higher that were not flooded or not touched by the flood. The dimensions of the Ark were simply not big enough to house 2 of every animal, plus food and necessities for the family if they had come from all areas of the earth.

2 Peter 3: 6 “Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.”

The first flood ended the part of the world Satan created; the 2nd was the flood of Noah and the Ark.  As God ended Satan’s chaos, with it he lost his power to create evil beings or entities.

Jeremiah 4:23-27 “I looked at the earth, and it was empty and had no shape.

I looked at the sky, and its light was gone. I looked at the mountains, and they were shaking.

All the hills were trembling. I looked, and there were no people. Every bird in the sky had flown away.

I looked, and the good, rich land had become a desert. All its towns had been destroyed by the Lord and his great anger. All the land will be ruined, but I will not completely destroy it.” (NCV)

So, in the beginning God created light and said it was good, was truly the beginning of God’s world here on earth. He had destroyed the prince of this world’s desolation. Satan still has the ability to do harm, attack Christians, make hurricanes, tornadoes, cause sickness and disease but he no longer has a throne or a kingdom on land.

This opinion makes sense out of the first few words in Genesis more than anything I have ever read. The background gives the importance of God’s awesome strength and power. We as Christians have the authority using God’s word to make the devil flee. That is the armor God has provided us.

When we decide we are “self-made,” self-sufficient or declare the world revolves around us we have taken on the personality of Lucifer himself.

And Lucifer couldn’t create light if he wanted to.155198_10151497954731718_222041034_n

  1. Cathy, I can tell that God speaks through you and your posts

    • Terry, God is amazing. He really wants to speak to each one of us. He longs for companionship and trust from his people. I try to hear from him before I write. Certainly I have missed it, but hopefully what I get wrong he will make right for those who read it. Honestly Terry, sometimes I will go back and read something I wrote and think ” that wasn’t me.” God does wonders through us as we allow him too. These latest posts have come from a book I have read as God guides me.

  2. I too have heard that God had to recreate the earth because of Satan. If you read Genesis 1: 1 it says — In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Then in the 2 verse it says — The earth was without form and void . . . which indicates that He had to recreate. Some say it’s because Lucifer was thrown from Heaven and it destroyed the earth. I haven’t heard it your way, but no doubt Satan destroyed the earth one way or another and God had to revamped it.
    Great post, Cathy!
    God Bless you!

    • Lady D: that is interesting. That could be true also. But the key point is God re-made it all. When he said “And let there be light” it ended satan’s rule on earth. Too bad it didn’t do him in! I really don’t like him at all! I am glad I finally read something that revealed to me what was here prior to Genesis 1: 1 because it is like it starts out from something. God knew what to do as always. I sure wish he would straighten a few people out down here now! LOL!

  3. Naphtali, I’ve not heard this story about Lucifer being put in charge of creation and a flood coming before Creation Week. Could you give me the Bible references where I can learn about this, please. 🙂

    • Dear Cheri, I am writing these blogs from a book by Mel Bond called “Understanding your Worst Enemy.” These are his thinking or theories, but they do make sense; I am not saying they are exact but worth praying about. I have always wondered why it sounded like in Genesis 1: 1 God speaks of the void, formless, dark. If God cannot create evil how did the earth get that way to begin with? Since satan fell from grace he would have created the evil. Read my post by John Paul Jackson he wrote the other day; it describes evil and that as Mel Bond also says satan changed himself. Hebrews 11:3 Total background is the 28th Chapter of Ezekiel. God describes to satan what he created him to be and how satan lusted after himself. So God threw him to earth; now Lady D just wrote a comment that she had heard when satan fell God threw him to earth and the earth immediately became an evil desolation, darkness, no life, and void and formless. That makes sense also. Isaiah 45: 18 speaks that God did not create the earth in vain. Genesis 1:28 he told Adam and Eve to go and replenish the earth; that would mean start it over as if to say “plenish” meaning it had already once been filled. In other words he rid the earth and told them to pro-create. 2 Peter 3 describes the first flood John 10:10, Proverbs 3:25 and Acts 10:38 speaks of satan’s destructiveness 2 Timothy 2:4 speaks of how God wants us all to come to the full knowledge of the truth Isaiah 24:1 and Isaiah 4 reveal the establishment of cities/government system satan had I just find this stuff so interesting. What do you think? It is just like God not to tell us everything! LOL!

  4. That’s really interesting about the role of Satan during this time. Thanks for a good read 🙂
