Is There A Gap In Your Faith! 

Is There A Gap In Your Faith! 

CREATION!    Genesis 1:1-2,Romans 10:17,Isaiah 45:12

The Intricate & Unique Design of the Universe and Everything in it, Demands the fact of a Divine Designer. Cosmology and Anthropology are Mythology without proper Theology. 

1. Egyptian Cosmology - Eggs with wings  2. Babylonian Cosmology - Battle Keyamont Monster and Murduke  3. Evolutionists Religion Believes - BIG BANG! True science and the Bible will always agree. Let’s read something that was written thousands of years before modern Science knew the truth.  Isaiah 40:22, Job 26:7  At the same time, Job and also Moses  the scientists of that day believed differently: Egyptians - Believed Five Columns held up the earth  Hindu’s - Believed an Elephant on a turtle’s back which swam in a cosmic sea held the earth up. Greeks - Believed Atlas: A strong man held up the earth.

Look at the very First Verse in the Bible: Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  Trinity of Trinities in Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning” (TIME)  Past, Present, Future, “God” Father, Son, Holy Spirit,   “created the heaven” (SPACE) Length, Width, Height, “and the earth” (MATTER)  Solid, Liquid, Gas  The Creation of Time, Space, and Matter Happen  Simultaneously! 

Refuting The Gap Theory!  What is the TRUTH about the Gap Theory? Is there Millions or Billions of years between the verses Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2? 

Gap-pers Teach the earth is Ruined in Genesis 1:2  Gap-pers Teach that God starts Recreates the  earth in:      Genesis 1:3  Warning! If you want to be popular and well liked stay away from the truth as you possibly can get. 

I. Why Would Someone Want To Believe In The Gap Theory?

1. To Make Room For The Fall Of Satan.

2. To Make Room For Long Periods Of Time.

This subject is not trivial but foundational!   Psalm 11:3

II. What Does The Bible Say about the subject? Genesis 1:1-2

# 1. Exodus 31:17, Shows us that Genesis 1:1 is part of the First Creation.

# 2. Exodus 20:11, Shows us that everything  that was In the Heaven, Earth, and Sea is part of  the First Creation. 

# 3. Revelation 21:1-5,  Shows us that we are still living in the First Creation. 

III.  The # 1 Reason The Gap Theory Cannot Be True Is That: It Undermines The Gospel!  Why? Let’s start with the subject of Death!  Is Death Real?  Where does Death come from?  I Corinthians 15:21-22, Romans 5:12
Before Man (Adam) Sin there was not something called DEATH!  If you believe the Gap theory teaching you have to believe that Sin, Judgment, and Death Existed before the creation of man.   Read the Rest of the verses in Romans Chapter 5. Romans 5:12-21 Death did not exist until Adam sinned!
                   Notice The Judgment of Thorns and Thistles! Genesis 3:17-18  Fossils start to happen only when Death occurred.  All Death started with Adam.  Fossils are already a Dead giveaway , but the existence of thorns and thistles is twice as obvious when logic dictates. If sin and death existed before Adam than Adam is not the ONE who caused the fall. I Corinthians 15:21-22  Taking away the reality of the damage of the First Adam, takes away the need of redemption of the Last Adam.                                                                                                      

When God created Heaven, Earth and the sea was it Good? Genesis 1:4,10, 12, 18, 21,25,31, I Corinthians 15:26  


 Death is an ENEMY and an Intruder in God’s Creation. Therefore could not have existed in God’s Original, Good and Very Good Creation in six days.                               


Is Man separated from the creation of world?

Luke 11:50-51, Mark 10:6, Romans 1:20

Heaven and Earth Future  Revelation 21:1

Question: Has the First Heaven and Earth Passed away yet? Genesis 1:1 Scripture tells us of only 2 heavens and 2 earths. If you believe in the Gap Theory than you have to believe in 3 Earths and Heavens.

When Did Satan Fall?  The Gap Theory is built on people thinking about Satan, Primarily his fall. Isaiah 14:12-17,Ezekiel 28:13-19,Job 1:6-8, Job 2:1-3, Revelation 20:10  The Bible Is Historically true, Scientifically true, and Prophetically true and Factual in every way. The Bible is Beneficial for all people for all times!

FUN FACTS  The Word “Dinosaur” was invented in 1841!

Leviathan - Job 41:1,9,18-21, Behemoth - Job 40:15-19,  

Flying Reptiles - Isaiah 14:29, 30:6
