The Majesty of God
Chapter Three – Expulsion
After Lucifer managed to garner one third of the angels to his cause, God called a halt to the campaign and Lucifer and his followers to account for their rebellion. They slandered and made accusations and proposed complex arguments in justification of their rebellion, attempting to confuse the auditors in the galleries of Heaven.
Then, before the wondering eyes of the Universe, the illusion of beauty these angels had cloaked themselves with was stripped away. The evil hidden in them became apparent in the ugliness it had manifested upon their forms. This was probably another thing about God that Lucifer thought was unfair; disloyalty to God diminished his beauty. He had to expend valuable energy to cast illusions, so that the creatures he was bent on deceiving would not see how hideously altered he had become. Holiness no longer beautified these angels.
Lucifer had spun his yarns and now those that had bought them stood arrayed against God, ready to do battle. It was a fierce battle. Not that it had to be. God could have knocked Lucifer and his entire army to the other side of the Universe with the slightest movement of one of His fingers. But He let the remaining angels who were loyal to Him have a go at the offenders, probably to teach them how to do warfare against evil, so that they would be ready to help mankind after He created them.
Stars collapsed as angels were booted out of their dominions, leaving black holes in space, dense spheres of darkness that absorbed all the matter in their vicinity. The Earth, of which Lucifer had been mentor and had led its inhabitants in the ways of God before he rebelled, was destroyed.
After God's angels herded Lucifer and his cronies together to oust them from their positions in Heaven, they chained them together and rolled them up like a ball of yarn (pun intended) with the prime instigator at the core, then booted them into Hell where they were received with astonishment by the drooping, disembodied, and disfigured spirits of the Earth's rebellious, former citizens. They are referred to in the Bible as "demons."
I believe that there is a difference between the fallen angels and demons. Fallen angels are of a higher order. It seems to me that demons are the spirits that lived on Earth before it was destroyed and then recreated in Adam's time. Kat Kerr asserts that the people who lived on Earth before Adam were angels who had flesh and that they looked after the dinosaurs that lived on this planet. She said the planet was encased in a bubble of water and that it had an atmosphere within the bubble that had a high density of water. She says that the dinosaurs needed this high humidity to live. She also says that this explains the carbon dating of rocks and fossils that register millions of years.
I have problems with that for many reasons. It is good to question people's visions and what they relate of their experiences. Kat said that she saw the creation of the Earth in a place in Heaven called the Creation Lab, but as long as someone is able to come back from Heaven, they are still subject to deception. Their brain can be manipulated with false memories.
One of the problems I have with Kat's assertions relates to carbon dating. Tests can show a telephone pole, that was hit by lightning and petrified just a few years ago, to be millions of years old. Obviously, something is wrong with the process of carbon dating. Further, it is based on assumptions and does not figure in cosmic catastrophes that can generate high readings of radiation.
Soft tissue has been found in dinosaur bones, which would not be possible, if they were millions of years old.
Woolly mammoths have been found frozen in the north, with undigested tropical and temperate plants in their stomachs. The meat has been fresh enough for Eskimos to cut off and feed to their sled dogs.
If dinosaurs could not survive in atmospheres without a high density of water, why are there still some supposedly extinct dinosaurs alive today in remote parts of the Earth? Also, alligators and crocodiles are "terrible lizards" and they have managed to survive long after many other types of dinosaurs have perished.
Pterodons lived at the same time as the dinosaurs, and North American natives have legends about them, having been seen by their ancestors. Also, pterodons have been sighted in modern times in Asia and Africa. Immigrants from these continents have wondered why western scientists say that they are extinct, when they have seen them in their native lands. Also, missionaries have seen them in Papua New Guinea and other places. Some people have sighted them even in Texas.
Fossils of insects have also been found in the same strata as dinosaurs. Could these insects survive only in an atmosphere that had a high density of water? Many of them are the same kinds of insects that are on the Earth today, only much larger, which is consistent with the same type of atmosphere that existed on Earth prior to the Flood.
In those times, also, the Earth was encased in a bubble, which kept the world's temperature at an even 76° during the day and 70° during the night, refreshed the electro-magnetic energy field, and shielded the Earth from harmful radiation from the sun and outer space, resulting in larger creatures, both human and animal, with much longer lifetimes. It was a very comfortable environment.
There are carvings of dinosaurs on various monuments around the world, and descriptions of them in ancient writings, particularly as they relate to them going after livestock. These stories are placed after the Flood. If dinosaurs needed a high humidity atmosphere that humans could not have breathed, then how is that they were contemporary with humans?
Kat said that the angels that had flesh were the ones who mated with women, after the Earth was restored in Adam's time. If that type of angel managed to survive Lucifer's deceptions and his ouster from Heaven, and see how much harm the fallen angels' rebellion had done to them, I find it too much of a stretch to believe that they would give up their eternal life in Heaven just to have sex with women. Besides that, would God have fashioned them to have penises? What would they need to have them for, if they had no females of their own race? Would God have made them with sperm, if they were not designed to procreate?
I don't think that it was necessary for the angels who mated with human females to have been created with flesh. It seems to me that various fallen angels gave up their powers and place in the spiritual realm, in order to enter the physical realm and become creatures of flesh that could procreate. They were undoubtedly promised great rewards for making that sacrifice.
Why would they not be able to figure out how to make a flesh body to inhabit? Scientists are clumsily experimenting with the same thing in our day and age, manipulating cells and DNA. Fallen angels are far more intelligent than humans and could produce bodies, not made out of nothing, such as God made the Earth and its creatures, but with components that were already existing.
I think that demons used to be flesh creatures who lived on Earth. Perhaps they were made from a substance other than clay. Because of their variety of shapes, I believe that they may have been various races, all beautiful before their rebellion. They may have been both male and female, with the ability to procreate. I believe that all the ones who rebelled were killed when the Earth was destroyed the first time, and that their disembodied spirits now seek human hosts through which to operate.
I can't imagine that any of those pre–Adamic people, who managed to stay faithful to God and were taken to Heaven, giving up their safety and purity and the indescribable beauties of Heaven to fall in with some scheme of satan's. They certainly would not be impressed with the beauty of human women, which cannot compare to any of the beauty of Heaven. Their intense gaze would be able to see every flaw produced by decay; they could probably see the microbes on those women's skin and parasites within their bodies. They could probably smell even the faintest odour of bacteria on the women's bodies.
The fallen angels were not attracted to the women's beauty; it was what they could do with their beauty that they were after. In their fallen state, every flaw would seem attractive to them because they love to destroy the perfection of God's creation, particularly that which is made in God's image. They wanted to harness the beauty of those women to make it into a snare to other humans.
Hell exists in another dimension, but shares a geographic centre with the Earth, as Earth's guardian angel was at the centre of the rebellion against God. In addition to being prophetic, Isaiah 14 is also historical, a wheel within a wheel. It describes the Earth's destruction prior to its restoration in the Adamic Age, as well as satan's arrival in Hell.¹
Many prophecies can be applied to both past and future, not just one time, and they can be fulfilled several times in several ways.
Some passages in the Bible seem to prophesy both an evil agenda, as well as a good one that brings things back into God's order. This is because satan engineers circumstances to try to make the Bible look like he wrote it himself by going along with it to a certain point, putting his wicked forces into array to simulate what the Bible is talking about, though God is really referring to something other than what satan makes it out to mean.
God turns the tables on him, though, and brings forth His good purposes out of the evil things that He permits satan to do. It all works towards getting satan to shoot himself in the head. There is nothing that he can do that won't end up hurting him because, when he chose to go against his Creator's design, he activated a mechanism of self–destruction that cannot be disarmed.
God has allowed prophecy to work two ways to sift human hearts, to give people the opportunity to take the Scriptures the right way, or to twist them and delude themselves in an attempt to justify their rebellion against Him.
For instance, in the New Testament, we read of where the Jews called down a curse on their children when they cried for Yeshua's crucifixion. Some justify their persecution of the Jews on the basis of that verse in Matthew 27:25, which indeed has been fulfilled by wicked people countless times, and some use that verse to justify their apathy towards the persecution of Jews.
As Bible teacher Roger Sapp, however, rightly points out, it was only some Jews who were hostile towards Jesus/Yeshua, whereas other Jews received Him as their Messiah at that time, and God is not unjust to condemn a whole nation because of the sins of a few, wicked individuals. One of the major reasons that the Pharisees hated Yeshua was because He was so popular with multitudes of Jews who regarded Him as a great prophet, even if they did not recognize that He was their long–awaited Messiah.
Righteous people also take into consideration how the apostle Paul said in the Scriptures that he was willing to waive his covenant rights as one who has received Yeshua as his Saviour, and go to Hell forever, if it would save the Jews. Paul took the opportunity to reach out to the Jews to show them kindness and lead them to Yeshua; he wasn't apathetic or grudging or hostile towards them as a people, though he decried their prideful delusions.
The apostle Peter said in 2 Peter 3:14 – 16 "Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." The Bible never condones selfish acts.
Hell is the environment that Self creates for its worshippers. It is full of confusion and discord, as everyone in it cares only for themselves, however much harm and discomfort this entails for others.
Those who assert that they do not want to go to Heaven, if their loved ones will not be there, will not find any comfort in sharing Hell with them. In Hell, souls will do anything to each other, regardless of close links in the past, on the flimsiest suggestion that tormenting another will alleviate their own suffering.
The ability for condemned souls to receive and give love is lost in that place, neither is it a place for intellectuals to engage in interesting philosophical discussions, as some have mockingly suggested. The days of gabbing with other rebels in taverns, salons, the porticos of temples, boardrooms, classrooms, and Internet chatrooms regarding ridiculous theories will be long gone. Nobody in Hell has any respect for others, or appreciation for anyone else's ideas, though they are compelled to simulate reverence for their tormentors.
Upon his undignified arrival there, Lucifer lost no time in reasserting his illusion of beauty and confidence before his astounded horde, after their initial glimpse of his tattered, shrieking outrage at being kicked out of his position in Heaven, and ending up in Hell in a gnarled, warty heap, his ungainly, bloated head wobbling under its weight.
At this point, God declared "Time–Out" to the rest of the physical universe, and caused it to retreat back into the spiritual realm to wait out the intermission. Earth was abandoned to lonely isolation, its waters frozen and inert in the absence of the sun's warmth.
Hell became a school for demons and fallen angels to try to surpass each other in evil, abusing each other as they vied for position among themselves, possibly with no inkling of God's further plans to display His glory, but hoping for opportunity to break out of the place where they were confined.
¹Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? [Isaiah 14:15]
