Charles Capps-Concepts of Faith-157(HD)-The World That Was


(Music starts)
♪ The Word is working
mightily in me ♪ ANNOUNCER>>Welcome to the Concepts of Faith Broadcast. This program is dedicated to teaching you how to put the Word of God to work so that it will make a positive difference in the everyday circumstances of your life. (Music) CHARLES CAPPS>>Thank you so much for joining us for the Concepts of Faith Broadcast. My daughter Annette is with me again today and we’re going to be talking about something, I call this the eyebrow raising series. (laughs) We’re talking about the world that was on today’s broadcast. Now somebody might say, What in the world are you talking about, the world that was? Well let me read you a passage here, right quickly… it says in the third chapter of 2 Peter, it says this – Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. – Now there’s a lot, a lot of people say that Well the world is going on just like it was from the beginning of Creation. When you read Genesis 1 it says in the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth. It didn’t say when the beginning was; most people believe it was 6,000 years ago and this is where the rub comes in. Because you remember in Little Rock, Arkansas, in the 80’s, mid-80’s somewhere along there they had a, what they call the science creation trial. The people that didn’t believe in the Darwin Theory was trying to get them to teach the Creation in the schools. So they had a trial about it. And I listened to that and you listened to it too and you know I decided the Creationists were just about as wrong as the Darwin Theory, because they kept on saying, Well the Bible says it’s only 6,000 years old. But the Bible teaches different from that. It doesn’t tell you how old it is, it could be millions of years old, billions of years old. In the beginning, God created… it didn’t say when the beginning was. And then it says the Earth was void and without form. And that’s, that’s where we pick up on it today. I want to read Genesis chapter 1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. 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. – Now if you come down just a few verses here and it says – And God called the dry land Earth; – when He got rid of the water he called the dry land Earth. Now the very fact that it’s called Earth, it means that God created the heavens and the Earth as dry land. He created it that way. Where did this water come from? There was a flood before Noah’s flood that destroyed the world that then was, totally eliminated from the face of the Earth, that whole world system. It destroyed all the trees, destroyed all the fish, destroyed everything that had been created because Satan was in rule of that planet, he was the anointed cherub and he fell and became Satan. And then there was a destruction that happened to this Earth that literally turned inside out, and destroyed that whole thing. Now when it says the Earth was without form and void… when it says ‘was’ there, the word ‘was’ is almost always translated “became” void. It wasn’t created that way and the Scriptures tell us, Jeremiah tells me, it wasn’t created void. Then how did it become void? This, this is what they call I guess the Gap Theory, there was a gap between just In the beginning then here the, the Earth is flooded. Well, Earth means dry land. You can’t have dry land if it’s flooded. So then there was a catastrophic event that took place back when that world was destroyed. It’s called the world that was, Peter talks about that. But when you follow this in the Genesis Account, it says everything produced after its kind. And it’s important to know that what, what God has done here is He’s stopped this thing that Satan had going. See, that world was ruled by angels but this world is not ruled by angels. And when, when we see what Peter says about it, we go over here then here to 2 Peter chapter 3, and he says this – For this they’re willingly ignorant of, that the Word of God, that 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: But the heavens and the Earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. The world that then was couldn’t be the world that now is or they would have said it was the world that then was. The whole, whole system was destroyed. All the trees, all the fish, all the animals, but not in Noah’s flood. So, this, this brings up some interesting things. ANNETTE>>Well it really does because it becomes very apparent that the word there in the Hebrew when it says in the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth, well yes. He did. But that word there in the Hebrew, I’ve looked it up, it, it really does indicate “became.” And the Earth became without form and void. So it is very indicative of some cataclysmic, catastrophic thing that happened on this planet that rendered it totally uninhabitable. And I think that’s also very clear when you go to verse 28 of chapter 1 and when its talking about God created man… it says – And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and ‘RE’ plenish the Earth, – Now you can’t ‘RE’ plenish something unless it was first plenished and then it all disappeared. And so it indicates that there was something that just totally wiped everything off of the Earth to where it was, this planet was void. Now, what, like what you said that raises the eyebrows about this whole thing, is that so-called Christians believe that if you’re going to believe the Bible you must believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old. And that’s just not so because there is obviously a gap. Now why don’t we have any information about what happened between verse 1 and verse 2. Well we do have, you’re giving some of the Scriptures about what happened. Lucifer ruled, God wiped it out, it was completely annihilated. But we don’t have the whole story. There’s probably books and books of information about what took place on this planet between verse 1 and 2. We just don’t have the complete picture, but we are given, like in Peter, information that tells us that the world that was perished. But this one, this system is a completely different one. CHARLES>>Yes. It’s very evident when you study the Scripture in Genesis, you find that God said let us make man in our image and our likeness. Let them have dominion; over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, the cattle over all the Earth. Psalm 8 says over all the work of His hands. So, God gave mankind dominion over this planet. The world that was, was ruled by angels, and, and I believe it’s in Hebrews, it says, the world to come is not in subjection to angels. This, this world is… angels don’t rule this world and the angels ruled that world. But when the, the anointed cherub fell, you have to realize that when you get into the third chapter here of Genesis That the… Adam when he was put in the garden, Adam and Eve, when they were created and put in the garden, Satan had already been cast out of heaven. and he showed up on the Earth. The Scripture says he already ruled over nations and we’ll get into that in a little bit when we read Isaiah… ANNETTE>>The question is, where did the nations come from that he ruled? CHARLES>>Where’s the nations? ANNETTE>>It wasn’t 6,000 years ago. CHARLES>>And he said I’ll exalt my throne above the stars of God, the clouds of heaven. Well, the clouds were there and the stars were there, ANNETTE>>That’s right CHARLES>>and … but he come down to the Earth, he’s cast out of heaven. Now you can read about it in, in the 12th chapter of Revelation and most people get confused because it, it… the 12th chapter of Revelation is the informational chapter. It’s not in sequence of the way things happened. And, and he said, he was cast down and it, it says that salvation, now is salvation come. Well, salvation came has already come, right? And, and people say that’s a future event that it is going to happen you know in the.. before the Tribulation is over, or something. No it’s already happened because salvation came. But when you study this, you find out that here’s Adam and Eve, they bowed their knee to Satan and listened to him and allowed him to influence them. And therefore, this is a re-creation or refurbishing of the Earth that, you know, once was inhabited but the total thing was destroyed. Now we had one of our magazines that we put out you know, Concepts of Faith, years ago and we had a picture of, of this world sitting in a chair and it had his legs crossed, a big old fat world you know… and it was a, a scientist with a microscope, I mean, not a microscope nut a big magnifying glass, looking at it, and, and, and interviewing it. And, and the world said, Well, actually I, I’m, I’m quite old but I had a facelift about 6,000 years ago. (Laughs) And that’s actually what happened. When you study the Bible that’s what it teaches. But now like I say, if you don’t study from that angle, you’ll never notice it. And, and when people say, Well you know, this creation… they kept saying the world is only 12,000 years old. Well they have rocks and things, ways they can measure it. Scientists are not that stupid. ANNETTE>>Hmm, hmm. CHARLES>>I mean, there is no real conflict between the Word of God and real science. ANNETTE>>Right. CHARLES>>Or the real Word of God and science, because it proves that Satan ruled over this planet, after he fell he ruled over it and he, he had it in such a mess that it was totally destroyed. And where did the dinosaurs come for… from? They terrorized the Earth and, and man-eating animals as big as a barn? ANNETTE>>Saber-toothed tiger… CHARLES>>It’s a perversion, of what Satan perverted of the things that God created. And, and it was totally all destroyed and you come up with this revelation here that It’s just hard for someone to get a hold of if they haven’t studied it. Let, let me show you a few of things right here in the notes. It says, Lucifer’s flood, the Earth was made waste. In Noah’s flood, the Earth was not made waste. The trees were still there, the fish were still there. ANNETTE>>That flood was survivable, it was survived by Noah and other animals. CHARLES>>That’s it. And, and in Lucifer’s flood the Earth was made empty and in Noah’s flood it was not made empty. It’s, it’s, it’s amazing when you… turn over to Jeremiah the, the 4th chapter in the 23 verse, where it talks about no light because in Lucifer’s flood, no light from Heaven … and in, in the Noah’s flood there was light from Heaven, Genesis 8:6-22. ANNETTE>>Well here in Jeremiah 4:23 it says – I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. – CHARLES>>Yeah. And then there’s another place, I think it’s in Jeremiah that says God did not create the Earth void. ANNETTE>>Hmm, hmm CHARLES>>He created it to be inhabited, so how did it become void? It’s between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, where the Earth was covered with water because the very fact that He called it Earth, that means dry land, it wasn’t covered with water. But in verse 2 it was covered with water. And the Spirit of God brooded over it and then God said let there be light, so He called light out of darkness. There was no light from Heaven on the, on the, on that destroy… destroyed Earth, the world that was. No day nor night. And Lucifer’s flood was day and night. Vegetita… vegetation was not destroyed. See, when there is total darkness it destroys all vegetation. And no continued abating of waters in Lucifer’s flood, and continual abating of waters in the Earth… evaporation and so on. It took what was it, 155 days before the water abated from the Earth, or something like that? And, and it said it hasted away, in other words, it was rebuked by God in, in Lucifer’s flood and it went away. Water’s taken off the Earth in one day and then months of waters abating the Earth under Noah’s flood. So, so there’s just all kinds of things that show up in the Scriptures when you begin to study it. That’s people just… that’s the reason I call it the eyebrow-raising series. It’s important to study the Word of God and show yourself approved, a workman that needeth not be ashamed. ANNETTE>>Well it’s obvious that people think there was only one flood here on this planet. But it becomes very obvious from studying the Scripture that there was more than one flood. And what the archaeologists are discovering is they’re discovering all the history on this planet that took place between Genesis chapter 1 verse 1 and verse 2. They’re finding evidence, they’re finding the fossils, they’re finding, they’re able to carbon date the rocks and different things, find the different layers. So this, this planet has a very long history and more than likely there are things that we’ve not even dreamed of that this planet has gone through that we don’t have any record of. So the, the archaeologists, the scientists, they’re finding these things. But then those who look at the Bible and think there is one flood, one time the Earth was plenished, then they’re left saying “Well the scientists and the Bible do not agree.” CHARLES>>Yeah. ANNETTE>>But what they fail to recognize is that there is thousands, if not millions, of years of history between Genesis verse 1 and verse 2. CHARLES>>Yeah. And, and the people that, that don’t take the time to search these things out, they’re going to believe what they’ve been taught. I did. When I first heard about this in, in the Dakes’ Annotated Bible is, is where you can get all this information, but he’s done hundreds of thousands of hours of research, and when I heard about it, I thought, no I don’t much believe that. But when I went through referencing the Scriptures that he gives and the notes, I was fully persuaded. Because you can see it very clearly when you study all the Scriptures that… to it. Now in Jeremiah the 4th chapter, let me read it here, it says,verse 23- I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the, and the heavens, and they had no light. – No time upon this Earth when that happened. It was the world that was, there was no light. – I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. – There was never a time on this planet since Adam was put in place on it that there was not a man on this planet. ANNETTE>>Or birds. CHARLES>>This is referring to the world that was. – And beheld, 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. And, and thus, thus hath the LORD, the whole lands, thus saith the LORD… ah. FOR thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. – So there’s some things that happened to this planet, that you don’t just come across everyday. But if you really go to studying the Scriptures. Let me turn here to Isaiah… Isaiah had, had some things to say about the, the fall of, of Lucifer and, and talking about, talk to the Prince of Tyre and you think he’s talking to a man but some of the things he said can not be… wouldn’t fit a man at all. He is… the 14 chapter. ANNETTE>>Well if you recall when we were talking about Daniel and about the angel coming, he said he wrestled with the Prince of Persia and that Prince of Persia was not a man that he wrestled with. CHARLES>>That’s right. ANNETTE>>That was a spiritual being, so this would correlate with that. CHARLES>>Here it talks about, in the 14th chapter of, of Isaiah verse 12 said – 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! – Now when, when Satan showed up in the Garden of Eden, Eden he’d already ruled over nations. – and he said I’ll exalt my throne above the stars… well were go ahead and read it – For thou has said in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: ANNETTE>>So throne, so he… CHARLES>>The stars are already there, Heaven is there. ANNETTE>>And he has a throne! CHARLES>>He has a throne. ANNETTE>>So he’s reigning and he’s ruling. CHARLES>>He’s ruling. – And I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; – so the clouds are already there. – I will be like the Most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Now it seems as he is speaking this to a, to a man but it does not fit a man. It, it is the same as some other places, there’s laws of double references. And it said – They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, and did shake kingdoms; That made the world, made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and the remnant of that were slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, – Now he is talking to a man but he is giving information that could not fit a man. And, and, and of course he said here in the 12th verse he said – O, Lucifer, son of the morning! So we realize that there are double references and prophecies and things and this absolutely lays the groundwork for him ruling over the world that was when he showed up in the Garden of Eden. He’d, he’d been cast out of Heaven and had to borrow the body of a serpent to manifest himself. And… my it just… ANNETTE>>And dominion had already been given to Adam and Eve, to mankind, then to rule over the Earth and to replenish it, to have dominion over it, to guard and to keep it. So, and we obviously don’t have the information as to how many Earth years as you would call it, that Lucifer reigned over the nations. How many nations were there? We’re not given that information. It could have been any number of years, so between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 could be any number of years to be determined. (sound of papers rustled) CHARLES>>He speaks in Ezekiel 28th chapter, it says – The word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; thou art a man, and not God, thou set thy heart as the heart of God: – He goes on. Now he’s, he’s talking to a man, the Prince of Tyrus, but this will not fit the Prince of Tyrus. It’s a double reference. Verse 9 says – Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no god, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths… – and it go on, it goes on to say. Now come down to verse 13, well 12 – Son of man, take up the 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. Thou has been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, and 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 was created. – He was a created being. This couldn’t be a man, this is a created being. And he says he was in Eden, the Garden of God, not the Garden of Eden, Eden, the Garden of God. A different world, a different system altogether, he is ruling over nations. He had all these diamonds and beryl and he was… did, did Eve say to Satan when he showed up as a snake, “Oh, your diamonds are so beautiful today!” No, he’d been cast out of Heaven and lost his beauty and become what we call the devil, or Satan. ANNETTE>>And, he would like to be back here, wouldn’t he? Ruling and reigning. CHARLES>>Yes. ANNETTE>>And that’s why we have been given power over all the power of the enemy is because he would like to rule and reign and have this world again. CHARLES>>He goes on to say – 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. Thou was perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled thee with the midst of violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I cast thee profane out of the mount of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thy heart was lifted up because of thy beauty and thou has corrupted thy wisdom by reason of brightness: I’ve cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou has defiled thy sanctuaries of the multitude, multitude of the iniquities, by the iniquity of traffic – and so on. So here’s God pronouncing his doom. I mean, the devil gets onto you about, about your future or your past, remind him of HIS past. (Laughs) And while you’re at it, remind him of his future, it’s not too bright either! (Laughs) ANNETTE>>(laughs) That’s for sure. CHARLES>>Glory to God! Well we’re out of time… my, my, my… where does time go? We have a offer today that I believe will be a blessing to you. ANNETTE>>Yes, I would highly suggest this 2 CD or 2 Cassette series called, “The World That Was.” It’s Offer #2225, $12 + $4 postage & handling. Our toll free number is on the screen, 1-877-396-9400, or you can go to our website, www.charlescapps.com. This is one of the most interesting teachings that I’ve ever heard and I think it will shed a lot of light for lots of people. And also, if you’d like to have a DVD of this program, you can also request that. It’s Program #8158, they’ll give you the price when you call. So this has been a good series today. CHARLES>>A good series… and I’m, I’m telling you, you need to get a hold of this series because we cover a lot of things we haven’t covered here. And you know it never turns out the same anyway but when you realize that this Earth could be millions of years old, and you know scientists they, they, they’re not (laughs) as dumb as some folks think they are you know. But if you study the Bible, you’ll find out that the Earth is millions or billions of years old. There’s a lot of things that we have assumed you know, that it’s just 6,000 years old. But it had a facelift about 6,000 years and that’s, that’s why they came up with this – it’s the reforming of the Earth and the replenishing of the Earth. And I’ll tell you, this will cover a lot of things in the, the CD series that we haven’t had the time to cover here, so get that and it will be a blessing to you. (music starts) Now until next time this is Charles and Annette Capps reminding you that the enemy is defeated, God is exalted and Jesus is coming soon! Are you ready? Ready or not, He’s coming.
