HOW OLD IS THE EARTH CONTINUED ~ PART 2
By Kathy M Storrie
Genesis 1:1 says “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”
God likes beginnings and endings since He is the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning of Genesis 1:1 appears to be a perfect, orderly cosmos as God creates the blue-green Earth surrounded by pinkish, oxygen-filled heaven and a protective firmament of water. With the addition of inhabitants, animals, birds, fish, insects, reptiles including vegan dinosaurs, land, greenery, flowers, mountains, waterways, this time period could have been thousands, millions, or even billions of years long depending on when Lucifer became jealous and wanted God’s throne but he got kicked out of third Heaven into second heaven.
This brand new Earth was created by the Trinity working together as One. God spoke the words of what He wanted and THE WORD (JESUS) made it. THE HOLY SPIRIT created an environment of perfect harmony on the blue planet as a trial-run planet of perfection put into action. God wanted His obedient Angels to see how good and how long things could and would last with all their love for Him and willingness to help mankind.
WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE EONS BEFORE GOD MADE HEAVEN & EARTH?
One explanation of what could have happened before Genesis 1:1 is that God created His 12 Orders of Angels to observe Him filling the solar systems with galaxies full of stars, milky ways, planets, moons, and nebulae to wow mankind with the power and wonder of God and help them navigate their travels on the Earth.
