This is pamphlet 10008
Did it ever occur to you that you may be deceived?
Apart from God, you can not know when you are deceived!

Are the things you have been taught in your church
since you were a little child true?

"If you are deceived, would you know it?"
The answer is NO!

No one who is deceived knows or believes he is deceived,

Here is the definition of the word deceive;
"to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid".

Have you ever known anyone to say,
"Hi friend, Guess what? I'm deceived."

If they did you would ask,
"How do you know?"

And he would reply,
"Because what I believe to be true is actually false."

You would say,
"If you know it's false then you can't believe it is true, can you?
So you are not deceived."

What I'm trying to say is,
you cannot know that you are deceived.

Things you have been taught, or not taught at all, but think you know,
may indeed be false,
but you don't know they're false.

Depending on where or how you learned those things,
you don't want to think they could be false.

But, you can (and should) assume that you are or might be deceived.

Jesus Christ warned us when talking about the end times, 
the times we now live in:

Matthew 24:3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives,
the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be?
and what shall be the sign of thy coming,
and of the end of the world?

[4] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

[5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Do you believe Jesus Christ?
He said many shall come in "His name"!

His name is Jesus Christ and they come representing Him,
as His ministers, saying,
"Yep, Jesus is the Christ,
the Messiah",
and people then believe the rest of what they say as if their authority comes from God.

How bad are we deceived?
In Rev. 12:7-9 we are told right from the Word of God,
that when Satan shows up as the false messiah
the whole world will believe he is Jesus.

That means they must already be mentally and spiritually prepared to accept him. Yes, they are already deceived.

If you is still trying to figure out what the "Mark of the Beast" is,
you already have it and don't know it!

Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out,
that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him.

Note: The phrase "the whole world"
is a generalization and means "the majority of the whole",
which leaves room for some exception.
It is written that God's very elect,
a minority of people indeed,
will not be deceived even for a moment.

Based on these scriptures,
"What is the probability that you are deceived?"

I would say the chance that you are not deceived in this final generation is pretty slim.

 Will you stake your eternal salvation on what someone has told you?
Whether he be a Minister, a Deacon or a Sunday School Teacher.
No matter how well meaning they are and believe it themselves.

You think not!

Then "take heed" as Jesus warned!

Be careful, consider this,
many times, even when people are taught to understand what deception is,
they don't think it applies to them
and they still believe that what they believe is true,
without question!

For instance, people know they are going to die.
They intellectually know that is true,
but they don't think or sense that it applies to them,
at least not for today.

The same holds true when tomorrow becomes today!

Another thing to consider about deception is
that if a person has believed a falsehood for a long time, in many cases, most of their life,
when they hear something that contradicts that belief,
though it may be the "gospel truth",
they dismiss it as being odd or cultist or whacko,
even when the evidence showing it to be deception is unquestionable.

Of course there are many who will aid them in their rejection of truth as being controversial.
It takes a man or woman of courage to seek the truth and even greater courage to accept that truth,  especially if it is not the majority or even a popular view.

Who wants to be alone and take a stand
like Noah or Elijah or David or Daniel or Jesus Christ? 


Did it ever occur to you that you have been deceived
about which came first,
the earth or you?

If you have been taught,
as I was,
that in Gen. 1:1 God created the heaven
and the earth first and later,
on the sixth day,
He created us,
my Bible disagrees and we have been deceived.

Let's look at that time before the beginning, before Gen. 1:1,
when God brought into being all of His many children,
including you and me, who are "sons of God",
even as we are called in the Bible.

That's right, you were, and you are, a son of the living God,
and you and I are "older than the hills".

"I don't believe it", you say.

Stick around, I'll show it to you in His Word.

You can reject it if you choose,
because you never heard it before
and because it sounds strange to you.

All souls, God's children,
were brought into being,
and than our Father proceeded to build for us, His family,
the most beautiful Home in all of the Universe.
He called it Earth.

Then, when our Father had finished building, i.e. creating the earth,
We, His children were so thrilled and so excited that we shouted for joy!

Here's your documentation:

Job 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
[2] Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
God had just scolded Job's friend saying,
" My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends:
for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath."

Unfortunately, many preachers today don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right, either!

It is good that we now have the written Word of God
and we are to determine what is truth through that Word.

If what man (your preacher) tells you is written therein,
then hold fast to that which is good.
If what man (your preacher) tells you,
contradicts what is written therein, then pitch it.

Make sure you do your homework before you accept or reject it.
Your own opinion doesn't count as far as God is concerned!

[3] Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
Your preacher won't be there when you answer this question.

What will you say when God asks why you haven't read and studied His Word?

[4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 
[5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?

[6] Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;

[7] When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Did you catch that?
ALL of the sons of God,
including you and me and Job, etc.,

shouted for joy when God created this beautiful earth.

He said so!
You just read it!
And we loved it,
else we wouldn't have shouted for joy!

Now, that means we came before the earth was created.
Yes, it means we have been deceived.

The earth as created in Gen. 1:1 must have been stunning,
for it was quite different back then,
before it was knocked off its axis.

Yes, we lived on earth with the dinosaurs and mammoths.


Did it ever occur to you that
you have been deceived
when taught that God first
created the earth
and then five days later, man?

There was previously another earth age
more beautiful than this one?


Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul.

Please note that this word translated became in the above verse
was correctly translated from the Hebrew word hayah in the original text.

Below is the defination of the word hayah
hayah, haw-yaw', Hebrew 1961; a primitive root [compare Hebrew 1933 (hava')]; to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary) :- beacon, altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, use.

Now, why did I bring this to your attention when this pamphlet is about an earlier earth age?



Read on!

Genesis 1:2 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.

Here in Gen. 1:2 it seems to say
that God created the heavens and the earth (vs. 1)
and it WAS without form, and void when He made it,
meaning it was a desolate wasteland without form.

But, wait a minute, in the original Hebrew text,
the word translated was in this verse is hayah which means became or come to pass.

This is EXACTLY the same word translated BECAME in Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

In the King James Bible this Hebrew word hayah
is translated became 67 times,
becamest, came, and came to pass 505 times,
and become 66 times; But for some reason here in Genesis 1:2 it is translated was!.

Now that we have this knowledge let's read the verse again.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was [became] 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.

It is truly amazing how just one word
either mistranslated or translated poorly
can have such a tremendous influence on the world of Christianity,
and right from the beginning,
the very second verse in the Bible.

We will not allow poor scholarship to obscure the truth of His Word.

So which is it?

Did God create the earth in a state of utter waste and desolation?

No, it BECAME that way!
(If you have an NIV Bible it will note the word "was" in Gen 1:2 as "or became".)
 

So the earth was very beautiful back then in Gen. 1:1,
when the Behemoth of Job 40:15, the dinosaur, roamed the earth.
There was a water canopy that enveloped the entire globe
which made it a virtual greenhouse with lush vegetation from the Arctic to the Antarctic.

That is why the Mastodons and Mammoths
that have been discovered in the tundra and in Northeast Siberia,
which were instantly frozen
when God changed the earth from beautiful and populated as described in Gen. 1:1
to without form and void as described in Gen. 1:2
had grass in their bellies and buttercups in their mouths.

You can read about them on the Discovery Channel's website.
Here is the link and an excerpt: http://www.discovery.com/exp/mammoth/discoveries.html

GREAT MAMMOTH DISCOVERIES

In Northeast Siberia, a villager showed a Cossack named Yaklovski a tusk he'd hacked from "one of those great hairy devils up on the under-cliff of the Beresovka River." The Cossack, in turn, told a local police official, who notified the Imperial Academy of Sciences. In September 1901, zoologist Otto F. Herz was sent to retrieve the mammoth carcass before it was devoured by wild animals. Herz and his crew spent nearly a month meticulously removing the giant's still largely intact body from the ice. Its stomach was found to contain more than 33 pounds of grass. The mammoth's remains were stuffed, with about one-third of the animal's body, including its tail, made up of its actual, preserved skin. The rest of the specimen in Leningrad's Zoological Museum is covered with restored skin.

Editors Note:

The Bible tells us exactly what caused the extinction of dinosaurs and mammoths. It also tells us why, even though we were created prior to the creation of the earth and lived during that first earth age, with the dinosaurs, no human bones have ever been found along side the dinosaur bones.
The question is "How" and "When" and "Why" did the earth become such a desolation?  We will read the "specific" answers to all three later in our study.

Don't miss them,
because in the fascinating answers to these questions
lay the very foundation for understanding
why we are now in flesh bodies
that will someday perish!

Wouldn't you like to know?

You can!

You can (and should) assume that you have previously been mislead and are or might be deceived.

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name,saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Unfortunately, many preachers today don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right!


Did it ever occur to you that you were being deceived
when you were taught only the bad things about Satan?

Were you ever taught that Satan Was Once Our Chief Priest?

Were you ever taught that even though he is evil,
he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty?
and that if you don't know that, it will be easy for him to deceive you into worshiping him when he stands where he ought not, claiming that he is Christ, during the end time?



You are aware that God created all of His sons,
including you and me, even before the creation of the earth in Gen. 1:1?

One of those sons, was named Lucifer, which means "morning star",
a title of great honor.

We also read from Job 38:7 that at the creation of this beautiful earth,
the "morning stars" formed the chorus as they sang together
while all the rest of the sons of God cheered for great joy.

Lucifer was among those morning stars who sang. (Job 38:7
"When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?")

Let's read about this "morning star", Lucifer, in the Book of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel is referring to Lucifer as once being a very honorable and esteemed individual  by our Father and all of His children too!
[13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
This verse documents that we are not talking about the literal human king of Tyre. This is all about Satan.
This next part of the verse is very insightful if you have eyes to see and are familiar with God's Word.
[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
First we see that Satan was created just like everyone else.
But, we also see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him.
What in the world is that?

Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".

mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak);properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Lucifer was given a very important duty or position in the first earth age.
He was a priest!

No, you say, you never heard such a thing!

 Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him.
This means that Satan wore the "Breastplate of a Priest of God",
a very high position indeed!

Yes, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father.

You see, these stones listed in verse 13 are exactly the same as the stones that the Levitical priests wear in this earth age.



Here is a description of a priest's breastplate from Exodus 28, so we know for sure.
(You can compare stone for stone if you like.)
Exodus 28:17-21 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: 
the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.

[18] And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

[19] And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.

[20] And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
[21] And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.

So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer,
was a high priest of God even over the children of God.
Think about it!
Let's read more about him in Ezekiel 28.
Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth;
and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
God anointed Lucifer as a "protector of the mercy seat", which is where Christ sits (there are only two cherubs that cover the Ark of the Covenant),
and set him high upon the holy mountain, which is the seat of authority of the kingdom of God, i.e. he also had a very high governmental position.

 In the first earth age Lucifer walked up and down in the midst of God's Children, who are those "stones of fire" we just read of in the last verse.

You see, our Father is a consuming fire (spiritually).
That's why these stones are called stones of fire for they are His children.
Your documentation is found in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

So Satan really had it made at one time, didn't he?
He had it ALL, as we say.

Now read this next verse about him.

[15] Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Uh oh! Something has gone haywire!
God created this son, Lucifer, "perfect",
which if you take the time to look up this word in your Strong's Concordance
you will find it means "without blemish", "undefiled", i.e. He created him not only to be beautiful, but also morally upright, and so at one time he did have integrity.

However, God ALSO gave all of His children, you and me and Lucifer, FREE WILL,
so Lucifer, once a beautiful morning star, lost his brightness, his light,
and now became Satan, the dark one, the evil one.

Here are the Hebrew words for "perfect" and "iniquity", respectively.

tamiym, taw-meem', Hebrew 8549; from Hebrew 8552 (tamam); entire (literal, figurative or moral); also (as noun) integrity, truth :- without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole.

`evel, eh'-vel, Hebrew 5766; or avel, aw'-vel; and (feminine) avlah, av-law'; or owlah, o-law'; or olah, o-law'; from Hebrew 5765 (`aval); (moral) evil :- iniquity, perverseness, unjust (-ly), unrighteousness (-ly), wicked (-ness).

When he was created, Satan was tamiym but he became 'evel.
Here's what caused him to become that way:
Ezekiel 28:16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned:
The NIV reads: "Your great wealth filled you with internal turmoil and you sinned."

Hey, he loved THINGS and MONEY!

The most important thing we must know about Satan
is that as Ezekiel tells us in Chapter 28 verse 12,
he was full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Even though he is evil, he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
It will be very easy for him to deceive Christians into believing he is Christ when he returns to earth in the end times at the sixth trump.

You can (and should) assume that you have
previously been mislead about Satan
and are or might be deceived.

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Unfortunately, many preachers today don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right!


This Hebrew word for "sinned" is "chata'"
and it is extremely important to understand its meaning,
for contained in this word is what Satan DID that was so EVIL.

Are you deceived about
what Satan's gross sin was
during the first earth age?

We read that when Satan (Lucifer) was created,
he was perfect but he became evil.
Here's what caused him to become evil:

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel is referring to Lucifer as once being a very honorable and esteemed individual by our Father and all of His children too!
[13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
This verse documents that we are not talking about the literal human king of Tyre.
This is all about Satan.
This next part of the verse is very insightful if you have eyes to see and are familiar with God's Word.
[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
First we see that Satan was created just like everyone else.
But, we also see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him.
What in the world is that?

Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".

mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak);properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Lucifer was given a very important duty or position in the first earth age.
He was a priest!

No, you say, you never heard such a thing!

 Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him.
This means that Satan wore the "Breastplate of a Priest of God",
a very high position indeed!

Yes, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father.

But then we find out that Satan has a problem.

Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise

they have filled the midst of thee with violence,
The NIV reads: "Your great wealth filled you with internal turmoil and you sinned."

I seems he loved THINGS and MONEY!
Isn't that a surprise?
Have you ever heard of a priest or a minister
or a government official who has been corrupted by money?
Now we know where their greed comes from!
Editors Note: We did not say all priests, all ministers, or all government officials.

and thou hast sinned:
This Hebrew word for "sinned" is "chata'"
and it is extremely important to understand its meaning,
for contained in this word is what Satan did that was so evil.
chat*a', khaw-taw', Hebrew 2398; a primitive root; properly to miss; hence (figurative and general) to sin; by inference to forfeit, lack, expiate, repent, (causative) lead astray, condemn :- bear the blame, cleanse, commit [sin], by fault, harm he hath done, loss, miss, (make) offend (-er), offer for sin, purge, purify (self), make reconciliation, (cause, make) sin (-ful, -ness), trespass.
The proper meaning here is (CAUSATIVE) LEAD ASTRAY.
"Causative" as defined by Webster is:
(1.) effective or operating as a cause or agent
(2.) expressing causation; specif.: being a linguistic form that indicates
that the subject causes an act to performed or a condition to come into being.

You see, Rev. 12:4 declares that Satan drew the third part of God's children away from God,
and caused them to fall to the earth,
which is a figure of speech meaning he caused them to "fall" from "tamiym", perfection,
from the good graces of our Father and from listening to and following Him!
Satan "sinned". He led a third of God's children astray!

Rev. 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:
That is what Satan did that God could not allow.
It was bad enough that he himself became corrupted,
but God could have just removed him from the earth
and life would have continued on as it was in the very beginning
when God created the heaven and earth.
Remember, in the beginning of the first earth age (Gen. 1:1).
All of us, His sons, were happy and delighted and joyful.

What was our loving Father to do?
A third of us followed Satan's evil lead, should he destroy a third of his children?

Let's read the rest of Ezekiel 28:16

Ezekiel 28:16 [..continued]  therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God:
and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Satan lost his position as Priest
and the "Breastplate of the 12 Stones"
 and his death sentence is about to be announced!
Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty,
thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
 Satan gets a great big lesson in humility,
though not for his sake,
but for the benefit of us, the other children,
to serve as an Example and a Reminder to us!

God has not carried out this sentence just yet.
It will be done during the Millennium,
at the end of this 2nd earth age,
when he is cast into the pit
and everyone who walks by will "look down" on him
and see him as the "scum" he really is.

Let's read about it in Isaiah
Isaiah 14:12-16 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Did you notice that???
There were nations back then in the first earth age,
and there are nations now in this earth age,
and there will be nations in the eternity (Rev. 21).

                 [13] For thou hast said in thine 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:

He wanted to completely take over!
He wanted to be God!

It reminds me of today's politicians and the "New World Order"!

[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
[15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
[16] They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying,
Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
These next two verses contain Satan's final sentence of judgment
pronounced by our Father.
It is the only one of its kind to this point in all of eternity!
Only Satan has been judged and sentenced to date.
Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
He sentenced Satan to die, to PERISH.
That's right, He sentenced one of his own children,
who he at one time was very fond and proud of, to eternal DEATH.
And so the beautiful, once high ranking Lucifer,
now the lowly fallen Satan,
will henceforth be called the "son of Perdition",
the one son of God (so far) who definitely WILL PERISH in the lake of fire!
Perish, i.e. Gone forever to be no more!
 You just read it!
See verse 18 above (... therefore I  bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes...)
So much for eternal torment!
Like frying people in a burning hell for ever and ever.
See verse 19 below (... never shalt thou be any more.
Ezekiel 28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
God did not carry out Satan's death sentence yet.
We'll read about why, later.

You can (and should) assume that you have
previously been mislead about Satan
and are or might be deceived.

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Unfortunately, many preachers today, claiming to speak in Christ's name, don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right!


This Hebrew word for "sinned" is "chata'"
and it is extremely important to understand its meaning,
for contained in this word is what Satan DID that was so EVIL.
Read it again!
chat*a', khaw-taw', Hebrew 2398; a primitive root; properly to miss; hence (figurative and general) to sin; by inference to forfeit, lack, expiate, repent, (causative) lead astray, condemn :- bear the blame, cleanse, commit [sin], by fault, harm he hath done, loss, miss, (make) offend (-er), offer for sin, purge, purify (self), make reconciliation, (cause, make) sin (-ful, -ness), trespass.
Did it ever occur to you that you are being deceived
if you have never been taught
why God didn't destroy Satan way back
when He sentenced him to perish.

He is going to use Satan to teach us, His other children,
that the consequence of disobedience is eternal death.

But first he must allow us to experience death,
not eternal death,
but physical death (as in flesh and blood death)

You see, in our study to date we are still in the first earth age. We are not in bodies that will die. Up to this time only animals had flesh and blood bodies. God will now teach us to know and appreciate what death is like.

Yes, Satan will be a terror for a little while, even as God will use him in His Plan, and people will be astonished at him when he is allowed to show up as the false-christ in this final generation of this second earth age and assume his former lofty position
(for he will claim to be Jesus Christ).

But his sentence has already been passed and it is FINAL,
and there is no appeal to a higher authority,
for there is no higher authority than our Father.

What about all of the other children who Satan lead to sin?
We didn't read anything about them being judged!
Were any other sons judged back then?

Yes, actually there were some who were later judged
(though they were not fallen ones) and even justified.
We will read all about them soon enough!
You might even be one of them!

But the good news is that the next court date set for FINAL JUDGMENT
has been postponed until AFTER the Millennium,
because our Father has a Plan to save many of His children, even though they sinned

It is called the Plan of Salvation, and it is a Plan of Love for His children!


Are you deceived?
Didn't you know
That, God Completely Destroyed The First Earth Age.

Almost everybody acknowledges that there was a time long ago
when Dinosaurs roamed this earth.

Science calls that age of long ago "prehistoric times"
while the Bible calls that age "the world that then was" (2 Pet. 3:6).

Also, there is one other obvious fact that everyone agrees with,
and that is there are NO MORE dinosaurs!

They are ALL gone, extinct!

The demise of the dinosaurs was quick and sudden

Without the Word of God man will NEVER be able to determine "why" it happened.

The Word of God tells us "why" they perished.



Let's recap what we have learned so far, earlier in our deception study:

This is Before GEN. 1:1

1.) Wisdom was with God before He ever had sons

and before He ever created the heaven and earth. (Prov. 8:23-25)

2.) God created all souls, including you and me,

because His desire was to have sons, i.e. children. (Prov. 8:31)
His sons were NOT created in flesh bodies
but rather in what we will call angelic bodies,
just like His son Lucifer who he anointed to be one of the prestigious "morning stars",
which is what his name means.

This is GEN. 1:1

3.) God then created the heaven and the earth to be inhabited by His sons (Isa. 45:18,

Gen. 1:1) and they all shouted for joy when He finished it. (Job 38:7)
This is the "world that then was" which science calls the prehistoric age of long, long ago,
the age of the great dinosaurs.
His sons/we did begin inhabiting the earth,
which again is the reason our Father made it for us.
We will soon document from the Word that there were cities and birds, etc.,
but remember, the sons of God were not made out flesh and blood,
which is why human bones and remains are NOT found along with those of the dinosaurs.

Now you know why.

After GEN. 1:1 and Before GEN 1:2

4.) Everything was perfect and harmonious in those prehistoric times,

in that world that then was, until the very great and high-ranking Lucifer "sinned" greatly (Ezek. 28:16)
by drawing 1/3 of the sons of God away from Him (Rev. 12:4)
and caused them to be cast down, i.e. to fall away from their Father.

5.) God then judged Lucifer [Satan] for his evil deeds and sentenced him,

without appeal or provision for repentance, to die, to perish,
to be no more (Ezek. 28:18).
This will happen in the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10) at the end of the Millennium.

Are you deceived?
Didn't you know about
The second verse of the Bible

We Were There,
in the Prehistoric Earth Age of Genesis 1:1,
But Flesh Man Didn't Exist At The Time.

So you ask again, "where is flesh man when God destroyed the first earth age?"
The answer again is: "There is no flesh man yet.

We, God's children still have bodies which are not made out of flesh and blood".
But there is a big, big problem!
That problem is that fully 1/3 of God's family has fallen away and followed after Satan and his One World Order,
the structure of which you can read about in Rev. 12:3-4.
(The political and religious system Satan had back then is almost identical
to the New World Order found in Rev. 13:1
that he will have when he is soon cast out of heaven to this earth in Rev. 12:7-9.)

What should our Father do about those who followed Satan?
He is not too happy, to put it mildly.
Actually, we will read He is quite angry.

Well, He could bring everyone into accountability and judge them also,
but too many of His children would end up with the same death sentence as their leader Lucifer.
That is a very unpleasant thought for any loving parent to think about.
Fortunately, in His infinite wisdom which He possessed
from before the beginning of "the world that then was",
He had a loving and ingenious plan to "save" as many of His sons as possible
from the sentence of death already imposed on Satan.

So instead, God postponed everyone else's judgment, after He judged Satan,
and He COMPLETELY DESTROYED the "world that then was", the prehistoric age, and the earth became a complete and utterly dark and desolate wasteland, and the water canopy that surrounded the earth was brought down
and now covered the entire earth's surface.

We have now come to the second verse in the Bible.
The prehistoric age of Gen. 1:1 is over and the earth has now become a desolation.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was (became) 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.
So the entire earth became in the Hebrew tongue,
"tohu va bohu", translated "without form" [tohu] and "void" [bohu] in the King James Bible.
Here are their definitions from Strong's:
tohuw, to'-hoo, Hebrew 8414; from an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figurative a worthless thing; adverbial in vain :- confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.

bohuw, bo'-hoo, Hebrew 922; from an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin :- emptiness, void.

We are given the details of this destruction of the prehistoric age
in the Book of Jeremiah, chapter 4:
Jeremiah 4:19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart;
my heart maketh a noise in me;
I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard,
O my soul, the sound of the trump, the alarm of war.
"My bowels", if you care to look it up in Strong's,
is figurative for "my heart".

Our Father is very pained that He must do this to His children and His beautiful creation.

Dr. Moffat translates verse 19 like this... [19] "O my heart, my heart! it writhes!

On how it throbs! My soul is moaning! I cannot hold my peace..."
He anguished at the very thought of having to do the following:
Jeremiah 4:20 Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled:
suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.
Ruin upon ruin, for the whole earth is ruined.
SUDDENLY are my dwelling places ruined,
and in an INSTANT all my shelters are torn down!
[21] How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?
He hated to do it!
[22] For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children,
and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil,
but to do good they have no knowledge.
The word "sottish" means "stupid".
Remember, this is our Father speaking!
This is what He has to say about His children.
Here is the N.A.S. version:
[22] For my people are foolish, they know Me not; they are stupid children,
and they have no understanding.
They are shrewd to do evil, but to do good they do not know.
Note: If you do have understanding then you will understand
that this verse is also descriptive of His children in this final generation
who have once again allowed Satan to establish his corrupt New World Order.

This next verse will document
that the destruction God is referring to here in Jeremiah
is the destruction of the entire earth,
reduced to the EXACT same condition of "tohu va bohu" and "darkness"
that we read of in Gen. 1:2, which we will parallel for emphasis.

Jeremiah 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void;
and the heavens, and they had no light.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, and void;

and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
We now continue to read the description of how the earth became "tohu va bohu".
Jeremiah 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
The great earthquake shook the mountains and the hills were moved with ease.
[25] I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
Everyone was GONE,
He took His sons away from their beautiful home,
and everything else was turned upside down and completely destroyed.

You can witness the remains of the prehistoric world,
the world that then was, in the layers of the earths crust.

Question? Have you ever read about or seen TV specials which speculate about a "Lost City of Atlantis"?
Well, if you believe God's Word, then speculation is over for you.
There WERE cities in the prehistoric age and the next verse documents it.

[26] 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.
Who destroyed the prehistoric age and the dinosaurs and the cities
and reduced the beautiful fruitful place to a wilderness?
The LORD GOD destroyed it!
Our Father wiped it all out and took it all away from us!
And He destroyed it because of His fierce anger.
He was very ANGRY with the evil caused by the Satan
and his rebellion and the fact that His children in their STUPIDITY
followed after that corrupt clown, Satan.

Look around you today and you will see exactly the same thing happening.
God's children are once again STUPIDLY following after EXACTLY the same "dung*
" (Ezek. 4:12) from EXACTLY the same "man",
Satan, the one who has been judged already to perish, i.e. the son of perdition.
And most of them are SO STUPID (as God calls them) that they don't even know it!
But THIS TIME they are going to LEARN so great a lesson
that hopefully it will save their soul at the time of their judgment
(and they will ALL be judged)
from the same sentencing decreed upon Satan,
which is to perish in the lake of fire and to be no more!

The fact is if you don't eventually come to "believe in"
(which means to do and follow) the Lord Jesus Christ,
and His ways (not this religious "dung*",
which fills up churchianity and breeds Biblically ignorant Christians
(which is what stupidity is) and allows liberalism to flourish
and bring about a New World Order) then you will perish as it is written in John 3:16.

So just how swift and sudden was the destruction of the prehistoric age,
the "world that then was"?
It is evident that God literally knocked this earth off of its axis
and out of its perfect orbit,
because He created it perfect and we know it was a lush green "fruitful place"
from the Arctic to the Antarctic (as evidenced by the mammoth discoveries we discussed),
but now it tilts and it wobbles as it spins which is why magnetic north
and true north do not perfectly align and we are left with a Magnetic Declination,
as anyone who knows how to use a compass will tell you.
Do a search on the internet on "magnetic declination".

MAGNETIC DECLINATION

The axis of the dipole is offset from the axis of the Earth's rotation by approximately 11 degrees.
This means that the north and south geographic poles
and the north and south magnetic poles are not located in the same place.

Declination is simply the difference in degrees from Magnetic north
and True relative north to your position.
True NORTH (north & south poles) are the axis of the earth.
The north and south poles are the starting and ending point of longitudinal lines that segment the earth.

Because of this declination we also have what is called the "jet stream"
which produces weather patterns and storms upon the earth
that were not present in the once peaceful "world that then was".

But our Father has also promised us that the earth will someday be restored
and there will be a new heaven and a new earth age not be compared to this present one, the second one.

You see, there are Three Earth Ages;
1.) the prehistoric age of the world that then was,
2.) the present one that we are in now, and
3.) the one to come following the Millennium.

The apostle Peter [2 Peter 3:6,7 & 13]
explains the three world ages to us
and how people are "willingly" ignorant (stupid) about how the "world that then was" perished.
