2nd Peter 3:5-7 "Knowing this first,that there shall come in the last days scoffers,walking after their own lusts. And saying.Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep/died all things continues as they were from the beginning of the creation. This is exactly what we hear today because of science and so we just blindly accept this,then try to make God's word fit into this line of thinking,which is wrong.
The truth is all things have not gone on continually as they were since the fathers died and from the beginning of the creation.
Peter tell us why all things have not gone on continually for billions of years or 6000 years from the beginning of the creation.
There is a gap that has been overlooked, Peter explains the gap that got overlooked when he stated.
For this they willingly are ignorant of,that by the word of God the heavens were of old,and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the WORLD that then WAS,being overflowed with water PERISHED. And since we know biblically that this world has never perished including Noah's flood,we all came from Adam and Eve,there had to have been a world that did perish that has been overlooked by the scoffers and this is why all things have not gone on continually since the beginning of the creation and explains why we think our fathers from the beginning died.
We are stuck in fulfilled bible prophecy for now.Because this is exactly what we are led to believe today in the last days and that is " since the fathers died all things continue as they were since the beginning of the creation. The good news is that we actually have evidence that a former world did indeed perish,just think of all of the fossils and don't think of them as our fathers because of evolution.
Well --we Do know that this world Did perish and it was through Noah's flood. But the Gap Theory -- was supposed to have happened between Genesis 1:1 and vs 2.
"We are stuck in fulfilled Bible prophesy for now." And, yes, the former world Did perish -- due to the flood. But I don't see how we are Stuck in Any Bible prophesy. We Are looking forward to the rapture taking place. And there Are various things that need to happen Before that takes place.
And, yes, we Have gotten away From God's Word. Higher education tends to laugh at it at least -- and at the Most -- tell us it didn't happen at All.
Yes the gap is between Genesis 1:1 and verse Genesis 1:2 because the earth is flooded in verse 2 and this is why all things have not gone on continually since the beginning of the creation like 2nd Peter 3:3-5 teaches us. If this world had perished in Noah's flood then how are we descendants of Adam and Eve? We live in the same world as Adam and Eve and this is why we need Jesus our Savior.How can certian bible scholars claim the time before Noah's flood was a different world than this world?Because that is what they are doing when they say it was Noah's flood.
Not trying to argue,but just trying to help you understand the gap theory,even if you reject it,it's still good to understand why we indeed believe there was a gap. This is not a salvation issue but a creation issue. If you would like to discuss the gap theory further,we can there is a lot of misunderstanding about it because of hear-say.It took me awhile to understand it because of all of the false things said about it by other Christians who don't know enough about it to refute it,yet think they have. It does not effect anybody as a Christian to understand there was a gap.
The reason why I say we are stuck in bible prophecy is because of the frustration of science teaching us that " since the fathers died,all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation and the influence it has had on us, so it is a fulfilled prophecy. We are scoffed at as ignorant,etc if we don't go along with this false teaching.Everybody who understands science has been influenced it.
Science goes all the way back to the singularity billions of years ago and everything has kept on going continually since our fathers died.Peter says nope! You're ignorant of the former world that perished in water in which that world perished. Everybody has heard about Noah's flood,so it cannot be Noah's flood,instead it is Lucifer's flood that they are ignorant about. Look at all of the debating about Noah's flood. Global? Localised flooding,etc but it is Lucifer's flood that people have overlooked.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.
