The Creation Gap Theory and Satan’s Ability to Create Life
Please read Prophecy Updates 148A through 148D
before reading this Update. The basic
hypothesis that I offered concerning the sin of Satan against God, which I
contend caused the earth to become “without form and void,” was presented in
Update 148D, and was as follows:
(1) That Lucifer’s original sin
was to attempt to create a living form of “bios” (physical life) by his own
(2) That most, if not all,
creatures possessing “bios” (physical life) in the time gap between Genesis
1:1, and the latter part of 1:2, were Satanic clones or counterfeits of the
life forms God placed on the earth in Genesis 1:1.
(3) That Satan’s basic purpose
in his numerous forms of cloning or counterfeiting “bios” (physical life) over
millions of years was to produce a form of “bios” into which he could transfer
his spirit, and sustain “zoe” in his cloned creature.
(4) That Satan was finally able
to clone an inferior non-homosapien form of “bios” without a living soul, but
could not generate “zoe” into it.
John, speaking of Christ, stated the character of
life that God was able to place in physical man through faith in his Son’s
ability to give it, and the Son himself professed his ability to give life
having that character. The word “zoe”
was used in both of the following scriptures each time the word “life” appears,
and each time it means eternal life.
John 1:4 – In him was life; and the life was the
light of men.
John 5:40 – And ye will not come to me, that ye
might have life.
I certainly do not mean to imply that Satan was
ever, or ever will be able, to become the original creator of anything except
sin. But I do mean to imply that Satan,
by misuse of his God-given intelligence, was able to clone, imitate,
counterfeit, or whatever you want to label it, and bring forth a form of life
we call “bios” from life that God created in Genesis 1:1. God alone is the creator of all things except
sin. I am simply saying that Satan
developed the capability to mutate, clone, counterfeit by his evil designs, and
that these productions were made from the “all things” creations of God in
Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth.
I do not mean he manipulated all of the “all
things,” but that he did mutate some of them, and of the some he did mutate, he
was never able to bring them under his complete control. I am also advancing the idea that God allowed
Satan to carry this out over an enormous time span in order to prove to all
creation God is the “most High” and, as such, the only one capable of
sustaining all life and the creation itself.
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!  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:  I will ascend above
the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
In order to add some inductive Biblical premises to
my argument that some life forms prior to Genesis 1:3 were of Satanic mutation
processes, I offer the account of the plagues, which were sent by God upon the
Egyptians and their many false gods. It
is noteworthy that the power of Satan to produce certain bios life forms
through the Egyptian magicians was
vividly portrayed. Satan was able to
produce bios blood and two different types of cold-blooded reptilian bios in
the form of serpents and frogs.
Exodus 7:10-12 – And Moses and Aaron went in unto
Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod
before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.  Then Pharaoh
also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they
also did in like manner with their enchantments.  For they cast down every
man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
The superiority of God’s created bios serpents is
shown by what they did to the cloned bios of Satan.
Exodus 7:20-22 – And Moses and Aaron did so, as the
Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the
river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the
waters that were in the river were turned to blood.  And the fish that was
in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of
the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's
heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the Lord had said.
Exodus 8:5-7 - And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say
unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the
rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.
 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs
came up, and covered the land of Egypt.  And the magicians did so with their
enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
But when it came time to clone or counterfeit a
warm-blooded bios, the magicians were unable to do it. I contend that, at this point in time, the
Devil had not been able to master the cloning of warm-blooded bios, but I
believed he would eventually learn how to counterfeit it, and that is why I
told the church I pastor 25 years ago that scientists would one day clone a
warm-blooded mammal. Notice the reaction
of the magicians when they were asked to produce a small warm-blooded sand
Exodus 8:16-18 – And the Lord said unto Moses, Say
unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may
become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.  And they did so; for Aaron
stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it
became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.  And the magicians did so with their
enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon
man, and upon beast.
Please notice what the Egyptian magicians said. They recognized this creation was by the
finger of God, which their god Satan was not able to duplicate.
Exodus 8:19 – Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh,
This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened
not unto them; as the Lord had said.
They knew they could go no farther, because their
god had not yet been able to master the cloning of warm-blooded creatures in
the time of Moses. And their folly was
manifested to Pharaoh and all of Egypt.
II Timothy 3:8,9 – Now as Jannes and Jambres
withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds,
reprobate concerning the faith.  But they shall proceed no further: for
their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
The magicians exclamation, “This is the finger of
God,” is a statement of their recognition of the power of the true God. They were not impressed that the “most High”
could produce bios blood or simple forms of bios life in cold-blooded
creatures, because their god could produce clones of counterfeit cold-blooded
bios. But when God produced a small complex
bios like a sand louse that their master could not yet clone, they quickly
acknowledged a higher “finger” of power than that of the god to whom they
belonged. Scientists cloned a frog long
before they ever cloned a large warm-blooded mammal like “Dolly.” Satan energized the reptile in the Garden of
Eden and the Egyptian magicians. He has
energized many forms of life in all ages, and will do so in the future. I believe he is now energizing some TV
evangelists who are willing to follow him today, as is indicated in II Timothy
II Timothy 3:6,7 – For of this sort are they which
creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with
divers lusts,  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the
I feel it quite within the realm of possibility that
the reptilian species of the many geological ages were Satan’s experimental
clones of the original bios God created in Genesis 1:1. It is also conceivable that as each new
species ran into a dead end by failing to progress into what Satan had in mind,
it was subsequently eliminated by some great catastrophe, cast out or discarded
to make room for another attempt to produce a species of bios that could rule
over the earth as Satan’s representative.
The earth’s crust bears testimony to many such catastrophic events
during its long history. It is not
unreasonable to assume Satan may have been able to ultimately produce a species
of bios such as the hominoid findings of the Leakey family in the Olduvai Gorge
of Tanzania, which roamed the earth millions of years ago. Satan may well have been able to produce a
hairy bios creature with enough intelligence to develop a lifestyle with a
strong self-preservation instinct. I do
not even rule out the possibility that such a hairy bios creature may have attained
sufficient intelligence to dig out shallow graves for its dead to eliminate the
stench associated with bios decay, and to draw characters on cave walls, but
these were not men created by God with souls – They were not zoe, they were
creatures of bios life but not of bios indwelt by zoe, the breath of God. They were not living souls.
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.
Hopefully, in Prophecy Update 148F, I will complete
this series on the Genesis creation, and finally get around to discussing what
I believed caused the dinosaurs, and the associated land life forms of their
distant age, to disappear so suddenly in geologic time.
