He also points out that Yahweh did not create the earth as waste, empty or in a state of decay:
"For thus says Yahweh, who created the heavens, who is Elohim, who formed the earth and made it, who has established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited" (Isa.45:18, NKJV).
Yahweh is not the author of confusion - ever! (1 Cor.14:33) but the author of Law, Order and Peace. What can only be being described in Genesis is physical renewal:
"The creation Psalm 104 in verse 30 (NJB) states: "Send out your breath and life begins; you renew the face of the earth". A time sequence of human evolution is given in 2 Peter 2:4-6, first in time order, "...the angels that sinned..."; next in time, verse 5, "...the ancient time from Adam to Noah..."; after that in verse 6, "...the cities of Sodom and Gomorra.."" (Op.cit.,pp.xx1-xx11).
The Destroyed Cities of Old Earth
If we go to Jeremiah 4:23-26 we learn something quite amazing. Here the prophet is shown a vision of the earth before it was renewed, and not only do we discover - again - that it was tohu va-bohu - waste and empty - but that in its former condition it also had cities that had been laid waste just the cities of the people of Yahweh in Jeremiah's day would be laid waste because they had descended into evil ways:
"I beheld the earth (as it was before the 'creation'), and indeed it was tohu va-bohu; And the heavens, they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled, and all the hills moved back and forth. I beheld, and indeed there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled. I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at the presence of Yahweh, by His fierce anger" (Jer.4:23-26, NKJV).
In other words, just as Yahweh would destroys the cities of Judah for their rebellion against Him, so had he destroyed the angel cities of the old earth. Just as he would destroy all men off the face of the land, so He has destroyed all the rebel angels from the face of the earth. All the birds would flee just as they were destroyed from the old earth.
The Earth's Three Replenishings
Yahweh now renews the surface of the earth again - the old, destroyed angel world is being recreated. Not only that, but he is replenishing it with humans just as Noah did after the flood:
"And Elohim blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth" (Gen.9:1, KJV).
"And Elohim blessed them (Adam and Eve), and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it" (Gen.1:28, KJV).
Though most modern Bibles translate the Hebrew male' as 'fill' the RSTNE and HRV agree with the KJV rendering of 'replenish' or 're-fill', in other words, "to make full or complete again". Both Adam and Noah were given the same commandment - to reproduce and repopulate the earth. What was the population before Adam received His instruction? Celestial malakim or angels who were driven off the earth after it died and became formless and void. We suppose that at the end of the Millennium a fourth replenishing will take place one last time. Then all men, birds and life will once again be absent, as Jeremiah saw in the days before the renewing. Our earth has been used many times. And on the fourth and last occasion I believe we will share it with the faithful angels of Yahweh who kept their first estate. What a society that will be! Hallelu-Yah!
Science and Scripture Harmonise
This scenario makes the fossil record a lot simpler to interpret. Creationist scientists have searched in vain for human remains mixed together with dinosaurs just as evolutionists have searched in vain for 'missing links'. Moreover we search in vain for fossil graveyards of 'ancient' and 'modern' creatures (e.g. dinosaurs and mammals) which is what you would expect if they coexisted and were rapidly buried in (say) a flood. The prehistoric world we see in the fossil record is the remains of a fallen angel world, not this one, which is why the two orders - the created and re-created - are not found together. The angels, of course, didn't hang around, die and become fossilised like we have because they were immortal beings. Therefore the absence of human remains in the fossil record from this time period is consistent with the idea that man and dinosaurs never coexisted, at least not the monsters we know of.
Explaining the Dinosaurs
Other things add up too. This planet had once been Heylel's capital. This is where his throne was located. To destroy his pride, Yahweh not only allowed the earth to decay into icy darkness and lifelessness but the whole universe as well, and then He recreated it to make it inhabitable for man. Were the dinosaurs original creations by Yahweh? I don't think so. I believe that following the rebellion the fallen angels tampered with nature just as man is trying to do now. I believed they tampered with pre-existing species and, through genetic manipulation, created monsters after their own dark hearts. The reason there are no transitional evolutionary forms is because evolution never happened - what we see are the results of genetic tampering by intelligent beings. That the dark angels did such things we know from their interference later on the Second Earth at the time of the nefilim only this time they have been interfering with human biology.
The Stars: Are They Really There?
If this scenario of two orders sounds fantastic - the original creation and a subsequent renewal - consider the night sky. The nearest star to us is Proxima Centauri which is about 4.3 light years away. What this means is that it is as far away as it takes light to travel in 4.3 years. Our own sun is 93 million miles away. One light year is 4.8 million million miles or 9.46 million million kilometres. Light travels at 186 miles per second or 300 kilometres per second. This means when you look at Proxima Centauri you're seeing it as it was a little over 4 years ago. This means that Proxima Centauri is a re-created or renewed star. Most stars are much, much further away than that and most of those our telescopes pick up probably don't exist anymore, having run down 6,000 or so years ago. If the original universe ran and died as a result of the angel rebellion then at some time in the future we will start seeing stars 'going out' in the night sky and then, new ones starting to appear again. It's certainly a thought. And it will beat any fireworks display hands down.
We also resolve, at one stroke, the problem of radioactive dating. A vast age for the cosmos no longer becomes a problem because what the Bible describes is a renewing of dead heavenly bodies, including the earth and sun. We can also accommodate the ice ages. Indeed, it is possible to look at the physical lenses with a totally new set of lenses without having to resort to the fairy tale of evolution. It now becomes possible to look at Creation Science in a wholly new way that dismisses the need for us to explain such 'problems' as the ancient phenomena in a supposedly young universe. We can, and should, treat both creation models with respect - young and old universe hypotheses - whilst maintaining our anti-evolutionary stance as unscientific.
What Must I Now Do?
What does this all mean for us in our daily lives in the here and now? To begin with, we have to understand that if we profess to be believers in the Most High Elohim and His Son Yah'shua, trusting in His infallible Word the Bible, we have responsibilities we cannot escape. We're angels or malakim which means we are agents of Yahweh in His employment. More than that, He owns us. To declare independence or to run away as Jonah did is then almost no different to what Heylel did in rebelling against Yahweh. There is a difference and its one of scale and power.
Because we're not supernatural like the celestial malakim none of us would be insane enough to believe the lie that we could topple Yahweh off His Throne. Even in our 'worst' moment, I doubt anyone here has ever seriously contemplated that. But - and it's a very big 'but' - when we seek to do the equivalent of what Satan and the demons did, we demonstrate that we are no different from them. And what is the equivalent? Well, if we can't topple Yahweh from His Throne, what can we do? Topple Him from the Throne of our own HEARTS! When we declare independence from Yahweh by either shelving or dismissing Him we are reproducing the original rebellion of Lucifer in OUR own domain on a smaller scale. And what is that domain? Our own SOULS.
Rebellion Leads to Spiritual Decay and Chaos
When Satan rebelled, all that was under his authority fell into decay. When husbands and fathers rebel, all that is under their authority - their wives and children - fall into decay too. Then, when that happens, quite naturally and understandably wives try to take up the sceptre of authority to maintain order and end up ruling in place of their husband, but in so doing they create even more trouble. I know, my family experienced that for two months when I 'took a vacation' from headship and ceased being Yahweh's agent or malak in my own sphere of responsibility. I ceased being an elohim, I ceased being a part of the Royal Priesthood. I became a child of the second resurrection and would have remained in spiritual prison for a thousand years awaiting the end of the Millennium if I had died then. Worse, at the end of the two month 'leave of absence', I was moving out of the sphere of the second resurrection too and into hell itself. Because of my positions of responsibility he did not allow me longer than 8 weeks - I had to make a radical choice or perish. The more responsibility you have, the less room for 'rebelling' you're given. Inevitably. Don't play with El Elyon! This is not a game!
The recovery has taken time. I have had to recover lost ground. I have had to be 'renewed' too, just as the ancient earth was. The blessing has been in that I have been able to see, and therefore deal with, hidden issues I could not see before. I have had to repent of things I have compromised on in order to make an artificial (and ultimately failed) 'peace' which was no peace. The only true peace comes from the whole truth. Now I am repairing all that and getting back firmly and squarely on the railway track of Torah so the locomotive of "all truth" (Jn.16:13), with all its passenger cars, can gain speed and attain the goal. But first you need to see the truth. And that's the ace card of the demonic - they know how to keep the truth hidden from view when we have once forsaken it.
The Demonic Candy of Lilith
The enemy knows that it's just a matter of time before it's exposed when it comes to the elect. We can only be deceived for so long (Mt.24:24). The enemy goal, then, is to delay repentance and do as much damage in the interim because it knows that recovery takes time. And time is very, very precious. And the more time it can get the elect to waste in protracted spiritual convalescences, the more undisturbed it will be left in building up and solidifying its Kingdom of Darkness for as long as it still holds sway.
Last night Yahweh revealed how one particular demon called Lilith does this. I have spoken of this demoness many times as she is one of the ruling dark powers and principalities of this final age. Like the spirits of Halloween, which recently passed by and were honoured by the pagans and false Christians round about us, she offers 'tricks and treats'. One way people avoid responsibility is by standing aloof and disconnecting their hearts.
This demoness is known figuratively as the 'night owl' or 'screech owl' though Hebrew translators are divided on the issue (Is.34:14), the NKJV simply calling it the "night creature". Liyliyth literally means 'night spectre' and comes from the root layil meaning 'adversity', a name of Heylel (haSatan = 'the adversary'), itself deriving from a root, luwl meaning 'to fold back' or a 'spiral step'. She was, of course, present on the Old Earth where traditionally she was a consort of Heylel himself. Of course, 'she' is not literally female but just manifests in that gender, like Hecate and Jezebel. Arguably she is the created part of Satan and may just be one of his manifestations since her name means 'adversity' just as Satan's does. What is interesting, in the light of what we have been talking about angels, is that her name derives from a root meaning 'to fold back', because that is exactly what happened to the cosmos when Heylel and his hosts rebelled. The Cosmos started running down, as it is again, until it became totally confused and desolate. This effect on the physical world is paralleled by effects on the human soul of those who have acquired this demon through disobedience. A soul who acquires Lilith progressively 'folds up' in a backward spiral. What do I mean by that?
Demonic infestation almost never takes place in one go but by a series of small steps which can be repeated tens of thousands of times in a lifetime if proper repentance isn't forthcoming. Someone with this demonic problem slowly dies without knowing it, like the frog being slowly boiled alive. That is mostly how the demonic works and a most effective method it is too. I have known many servants of Yahweh turned into enemies of the Gospel by this progress of gradually 'folding back'.
Here's how the Lilith system works as seen in a dream yesterday. Picture in your mind's eye two very tall boxes, one on top of the other. At the top is the person who has Lilith who is fast asleep, aloof and cut-off from other people 'below'. At about the same level as the first box, and next to it, is a kennel with a guard dog in it chained to the kennel. The guard dog, which is a demon, is to prevent anyone from getting to the sleeping person to rescue her. And like most dogs, its bark is worse than its bite.
At the foot of the stack of boxes is a smaller box containing what looks like candy, and specifically jelly beans. These 'jelly beans' are not at all what they appear to be, though. They are actually volcanic rocks which in the centres glow with red-hot heat. When eaten the these 'rocks' do three things: First, as they are swallowed, they turn into pummy stone, into what they really are. Second, they talk to you and give you the impression that they are actually 'you' talking (they're actually demons). Thirdly, they send you to again by directing you to climb to the top of the two boxes again and lay down.
In the dream, someone came and removed the box of candy. This caused the sleeping woman to wake up in a fit of anger because her spiritual sleeping drug - the demonic which had cut off her heart and sent her to 'sleep' - was being removed. In this awake state she is her 'real' self, fully conscious. She, however, can only think of the demonic drug so she must go down to recover it. It's her false comfort. The guard dog is the second part of the demonic system whose function is to prevent the sleeper from waking up and going down or anyone else from going up. Anyway, she went down in search of a second person to attack about the first person who removed the candy. This is demonically-inspired from the candy 'inside' already. The danger to the demonic at this stage is that the sleeper is 'awake' but she is afraid because of the anger (also caused by the demonic) so in reaction to that she wants to dampen the anger again by going to sleep. This is obtained by getting sympathy from the demonic candy-drug. And indeed in the dream she ate the candy again, climbed to the top of the boxes, lay down and went to sleep again.
Unravelling the way Lilith works has been one of the greatest challenges in my ministry. Confusion is caused in the double-system that it is represented by the loud and nosy guard dog (a feature of Hecate) and the candy. There's a complex interplay here to keep the demonised person confused because the false comforting agent also confuses and sends to sleep. What results is a good cop-bad cop scenario which the dog and 'candy' apparently 'enemies' but actually working in tandem.
The anger is actually a good thing because you can work with someone who is awake which an angry person is, even if the rage is non-human in origin. It is much harder with a person who has been put to sleep spiritually. That is one reason why Yahweh sends 'jolts' into our lives to wake us up even if the backlash is less than pleasant. You'll remember that Jonah was called a "sleeper" (Jonah 1:6) when he went to hid in the hold of the ship bound for Tarshish. Running away from responsibility is a sure sign of Lilith activity.
Are You Demonic?
Under stand this and understand it well - underline this with a think marker - when we rebel against Yahweh of our own free will - when we make a choice and say "No" to Him, WE BECOME THE HUMAN EQUIVALENT OF WHAT? DEMONS! What's a demon? A rebel angel or malak. What are we if we claim to be believers? Malakim - Yahweh's commissioned messengers. Both the supernatural and the natural malakim are agents of Yahweh. We're not our own:
"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Ruach haQodesh who is in you, whom you have from Elohim, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify Elohim in your body and in your spirit, which are Elohim's" (1 Cor.6:19-20, NKJV).
How to Recognise Who Rules in Your Heart
Now the mathematics here is very simple. Who or what dwells in our heart when we are in submission to Yahweh and keeping ourselves unspotted from the world? Yah'shua. He sits on the throne of our hearts. What is Yah'shua? He is the Angel of Yahweh's Presence - the Malak Yahweh who gave the Torah to Moses on Mt. Sinai. When we belong to Yahweh, Yahweh's Chief Messenger abides in our hearts as our Regent and Master. When He sits there we acquire His Nature, love His Torah and obey His commandments spontaneously and joyfully.
So what happens when you rebel against Yahweh? Another malak sits on your heart, another messenger, another angel, another ruler, a DEMON. A demon rules you and before you know it you are obeying the demon's rules and acquiring the demonic nature which causes you to hate Yahweh's Law or Torah and, finally, to hate Yahweh, even if you claim to be an atheist! And if you think about it, if there is no God, then hating Him is totally irrational. How can you hate what doesn't supposedly exist? Not that the demonic cares about that - whether you hate Elohim or believe that one of the demonic guises is Elohim makes little difference because either way you are a citizen - without rights - in the Kingdom of Darkness.
The soul in rebellion will, of course, stridently deny this. The demons, in any case, want to be remain invisible to you. Their game is hiding because they know, if you see them, you'll reject them ... if you can. Whatever lies you may come to believe, the fact that you have left Yahweh's sphere and entered the demonic, makes you what? Demonic. How could it be otherwise? Yahweh is the only true Elohim. Human rulers and judges in His theocratic Kingdom are called what? Yes, 'elohim'. What are malakim known as too? You've got it, 'elohim'. The word 'Elohim' means 'Mighty One(s)' or 'Ruler(s)'. Does scripture bear out that when we are under Yahweh we are also 'mighty ones' and 'rulers'? Absolutely. Every father and husband is a 'ruler' or 'mighty one' over his wife and children and as evidence of that Scriptures command wives to call their husbands 'master' or 'lord' (Gen.18:12; 1 Pet.3:6). Similarly, every mother is an 'elohim', 'mighty one' or 'ruler' over her children under her husband. Pastors are 'elohim', 'mighty ones' or 'rulers' over their congregations, and Pastresses are 'elohim', 'mighty ones' or 'rulers' in their own congregational spheres under the Pastor. Every member of the Melchizedek Order - male or female - who bears a priesthood office is an 'elohim', 'mighty one' or 'ruler'. I'll note cite scriptures here because you should know them all. This is Yahweh's Government system and there is no other.
Consequences of 'Independence'
It follows that if you declare independence from Yahweh that you become a pretended 'elohim', 'mighty one' or 'ruler' over yourself. At least that's what Satan wants you to believe. In truth, someone who rebels against Yahweh comes under the elohimship of Satan and his demons who give their subjects symbolic elohimship, which looks as though they are 'mighty ones' in self-control but which in truth makes us slaves to sin under the Lords of Sin.
Let's not kid ourselves. Each and every time we rebel against Yahweh or a single commandment we make ourselves into 'natural' demons and antichrists. And if we break one commandment and don't repent it is as though we have broken them all - and the whole of Torah:
"Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10, NKJV).
Brethren and sisters, Yahweh doesn't expect you to be perfect here and now but He expects you to aim for it. How do you do that? Quite simply, by keeping yourself unspotted from the world by abiding in Yahweh in His Torah in Yah'shua the Messiah. And it's not nearly as complex or hard as it looks. It's really just a matter of saying 'yes' to Torah and 'no' to the world and then living that way. So long as you're doing that and trusting in Yah'shua, no matter what your issues may currently be, you're living a repentant life, living in right relationship with Him and under grace. You're secure, however imperfect, because perfection or maturity doesn't happen in a day. Your responsibility is to stay unspotted like a child, pure in faith and love, by refusing to have anything to do with the world system. You must hate it as passionately as you love Yah'shua. The moment you start loving the world system you start loving the demonic and the fallen angel realm, and the moment you start partaking of it you become demonic. So make the right choices now. And may the Elohim of love and grace bless you and keep you and bring you all home to Him is my prayer in Yah'shua's Name, Amen.

Literally, "became a waste and a desolation" (Heb. tohu va-bohu) and not "was without form and void" (KJV) - cp. Jer.4:23 where Jeremiah is given a vision of the world before it was renewed. Tohu is also used in Is.34:11 where it is translated 'confusion' (KJV). In other words, the earth that Yahweh renewed was in a state of confusion.
