Did you know that there was an Earth age before this one and that this Earth is really Millions+ of years old? Scientist's estimate this Earth to be somewhere around 4.6 Billion years old. Now of course, no one knows exactly how old this Earth is, except for GOD Himself, but we do know that it is at least millions+ of years old according to the fossils that have been found and documented by science. Some people may tell you that this Earth is only about 6,000 years old according to the Bible, but that is simply because they have never heard about the 1st Earth age before or do not understand what it is. After all, how can a CHRISTian truly understand our Father's Word if they do not understand the beginning and the foundation of this World? Let's begin in Proverbs 8, where it talks about how wisdom was with GOD from the beginning. It let's us know a little bit about the creation of this here Earth. Verse 22 and it reads 22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. This is talking about before the Lord even built the foundations of the Earth. All wisdom comes from GOD, that is how we can know that wisdom was with HIM in the beginning. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. And again, this is talking about before the Earth even existed (eons of time ago). 24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. This is talking about when there was no ocean. And again, GOD's wisdom is what brought these things to pass. 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: Before any of it. 26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. This is talking about every little spec of soil; every little particle of it and before it was created; every atom of soil. And just to show you that it is also written in the New Testament, you can see it here below in John 1. 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This occurred in the beginning or archē if you want to say in the Greek. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. The logos. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Amen. Darkness cannot hide light. Light is of GOD and darkness is of satan. Now let's start from the beginning in the book of Genesis. Genesis chapter 1. 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. The world that then was. 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. Pay close attention to this word "and" mentioned here in this second verse. You will see that it is mentioned in almost every verse, here on out, through the rest of this chapter. It's called to a scholar Polysyndeton, which is to say going back to the first every time you see the word. It says a lot more than just the word "and". So what does it say? It says And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Genesis 1. Starting from verse 1 and it reads: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. When did GOD create the Earth? In the beginning. So when was the beginning? Millions+ of years ago. How do we know that? Because science documents it as mentioned above and so does our heavenly Father's Word. Below you will see Proverbs 8. It talks about how wisdom sp
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.
Note that verse 2 should really say
The word beginning in the Hebrew means re'shiyth, pronounced ray-sheeth'; from the same as 7218 in the Strong's Exhaustive Concordnce; the first, in place, time, order or rank (specifically a firstfruit):-beginning, chief (-est), first (-fruits, part, time), principal thing. Then the word created in the Hebrew means bara', baw-raw'; a primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes): -choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat). So when was the beginning you might ask? GOD does not give us a specific date in which He created this Earth other than it was in the beginning but we do indeed know that it was Millions+ of years ago. This Earth is not about 6,000 some years old as some people may say but instead millions as we are going to see later on in this study because science documents this with dinosaur bones and fossils that have been found. That is because they lived in the 1st World age. We live in the 2nd World age. It is only this World age (the 2nd) that is about 6,000 some years old. Let's continue with verse 2 and it reads: 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.
