Direct Strong Message on the Genesis Gap Bible Doctrine

I have written a great deal in books and have added to my articles here on my website, regarding the subject of “The Genesis Gap” (belief that God destroyed a pre-Adamic creation on earth involving fallen angels). The people who disagree with this doctrine which has a great deal of scripture-backing, in some cases likely believe it is sensationalism – a teaching simply designed to impress or excite people toward a false doctrine. Others believe it is simply a “false doctrine”. My answer to these religious accusations (i.e. They’ll proclaim: “It’s not what my ancestors believed or what my pastor teaches!”), is to point out the fact that the teaching is rather one that Biblically fills-in information that some scholars and teachers have literally anguished over for 100s of years.

Due to the seeming inconsistencies within the scriptures, when there actually are none, some have even turned away from God’s Words, concluding they are allegorical or mythological! Here’s an example: 2 Peter 2:4 states that God “…cast angels that sinned, into hell”. However, other scriptures state that Satan “…walks about on the earth as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” (I Peter 5:8 and Ephesians 6 “…we wrestle not against flesh and blood…”). So, if there were angels cast into hell that Jesus stated specifically was “….prepared for the devil and his angels.” – (Matthew 25:41), then why is there a satanically-devised system of devils/demons/evil spirits that tempt, oppress and possess mankind, worldwide, every day that currently passes on earth!? Do the anti – Genesis Gap people (young earth creationists) believe there have already been two (2) falls of sinning angels?

Was not Satan a fallen angel in the Garden of Eden, speaking lies and blasphemies against God, to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:4-5)? NOTE: These were sins on Satan’s part, even if Adam and Eve had not fallen from grace their selves. The logical conclusion is that angels sinned at some point in the distant past because IT WAS NOT Satan’s tempting of Adam and Eve that caused his original fall. Both the 14th chapter of Isaiah and the 38th chapter of Ezekiel state emphatically that Satan (the words also being directed at men in these passages who were under Satan’s power) became a fallen angel due to pride and exaltation and not because he tempted Eve and Adam. This is also obvious by the fact that Satan and the one-third of formerly holy angels under his power of darkness (Revelation 12), are operating under their own gained kingdom on earth (gained by Adam’s disobedience – 2 Corinthians 4:4).

Yes, their eventual destination will be “The Lake of Fire” for eternity but this does not explain the former fall of angels spoken of in Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28, 2 Peter 2:4, Jude 1:6, etc… . Some evil angels remain in hell currently and will not be released until “The Great Tribulation” (Revelation 9:1-4 – The 7 year period of God’s wrath). So, I would conclude by asking young earth creationists this somewhat lengthy question; Where did all of these devils/demons come from when they were cast into hell at another time for reasons unrelated to Eve and Adam and with neither hell nor angels specifically being listed in the Genesis re-creation narrative, (following Genesis 1:2 when Adam’s/mankind’s domain was being made in 6 literal days – see Job 38:6-7 and Hebrews 2:6-7)?
