(Genesis 1:1)

To understand God's Word we must first understand why we are here on earth in the first place.

There are Three World Ages written of in our Father's Word.

We are now living in The Second World Age.


What is described in Revelation chapter 12, verses 1-4 

happened between the first and second verses of Genesis.

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun,

and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon,

having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered,

for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

(Revelation 12:1-4)

The dragon is Satan, and the stars of heaven are God’s children. When Satan said in his heart:

"I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; i will be like the most High."

(Isaiah 14:13,14)

Satan deceived a third of God’s children into following him.

(his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven)

Needless to say, God was not happy about this at all.

The Book of Jeremiah tells us how God reacted:

I beheld the earth, and lo, it was without form, and void;

and the heavens, and they had no light.

I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled,

and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo,

there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness,

and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the lord, 

and by his fierce anger.

for thus hath The LORD said,

The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end."

(Jeremiah 4:23-27)

For the earth was not created tohu (Isaiah 45:18), but became so, as stated in the Hebrew of Genesis 1:2

and confirmed by 2 Peter 3:6, where "the world that then was” (Genesis 1:1), perished,

and "the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word" were created (Genesis 2:4),

and are "kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment" (2 Peter 3:7)

which shall usher in the "new heavens and the new earth" of 2 Peter 3:13.

(From Appendix 146 of The Companion Bible By E.W. Bullinger)

God destroyed the world that then was because of Satan’s rebellion.

This is how Satan became the son of perdition.

You can read about how he received the death sentence in the 28th chapter of Ezekiel.

The only alternative God had aside from destroying The First World Age and creating this one

was killing a third of His children for worshiping Satan.

What would you do?

God included Himself when He said

“Let us make man in our image”

and was born of woman also as Christ Jesus.

God The Son died on the cross, paying the price for one and all times so that

whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

(John 3:16)

The word "everlasting" is "aionos" in the Greek, and means"perpetual (also used of past time,

or past and future as well):-eternal, for ever, everlasting, world(began).

(Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance)".

It means, if you believe in Jesus Christ,


 who never ceased existing from the day you were created in The First World Age,

will continue to exist throughout eternity, The Third World Age,

rather than being blotted out in The Lake of Fire, which is what it is to perish.

Whosoever believes in Christ will not be cast into the lake of fire at the end of The Millennium.

and the earth was without form, and void;

and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

(Genesis 1:2)

The word was here is a bad translation.

If you go back and check it out in the original Hebrew language,

you can see for yourself that it should read:

and the earth became without form, and void.

Whereby the world that then was,

being overflowed with water, perished.

(2 Peter 3:6)

Whenever you see the words before the foundation of the world in God’s Word,

it is always in reference to the world that then was. Same planet, different age.

The word foundation is translated from the Greek word katabole.

The Noun, katabole, occurs in Matt. 13:35; 25:34. Luke 11:50. John 17:24. Eph. 1:4. Heb. 4:3; 9:26; 11:11. 1Pet. 1:20. Rev. 13:8; 17:8; and the corresponding Verb (kataballo) occurs in 2Cor. 4:9. Heb. 6:1; and Rev. 12:10. A comparison of all these passages (especially 2Cor. 4:9, and Rev. 12:10) will show that kataballo and katabole are not the proper terms for founding and foundation, but the correct meaning is casting down, or overthrow.
