The Angelic Conflict 2012 - Part 9
1JO 1:9 If we acknowledge our sins, He is faithful and righteous, with the result that He forgives us our sins and purifies us from all unrighteousness.
Point 3. The Angelic Conflict began before the creation of the human race.
The revelation concerning the Angelic Conflict begins with the dateless period between the creation of the heavens and the earth in their perfect form.
They first appeared in GEN 1:1 and then went on for an unknown period of time until there were some devastating judgments which ended that period, when earth became waste and empty, GEN 1:2.
JOB 38:4‑5, "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, Who set its measurements, since you know? Or who stretched the line on it?"
JOB 38:6‑7, "On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, When the morning stars [angels] sang together, And all the sons of God [the angels] shouted for joy?"
In GEN 1:1 the universe, the heavens and the earth, were originally created as the domain of the angels.
REV 12:4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars [angles] of heaven,
formless and void which is tohuw waabohuw because it's coming up in another passage that's important to our subject.
Isaiah tells us about a time like this in ISA 24:1 Behold, the Lord lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface, and scatters its inhabitants.
