Gap Theory

Gap Theory belief example:

The OT and NT Scriptures state dogmatically that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator of the universe (John 1:3; Col. 1:16-17). He created the universe out of nothing. It was initially created exclusively for the angels. It underwent a catastrophic change as a result of Satan’s rebellion against God (Isa. 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:11-19). This rebellion and the resultant destruction of the earth and universe took place between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. Therefore, the earth had to be restored.

Genesis 1:2 states that earth was “formless” and “void” and there was no light in the universe. Angels need light to function but all light in the universe was turned off as part of God’s judgment of the angels (Psa. 148:3; 2 Cor. 11:14). Creation is different from Restoration. Creation is making something out of nothing. Restoration is fixing something up after it has been destroyed. God the Holy Spirit is responsible for the restoration of the earth and the universe from the chaos, which resulted from Satan’s rebellion (Gen. 1). Everyone in the Trinity was involved in the Restoration of the earth. God the Father planned the restoration. God the Holy Spirit actually restored or fixed the earth that had been preserved under the ice (Gen. 1:2b-20). God the Son created and sustained the new things that were going to be put on the earth such as mankind (Gen. 1:21, 27; Heb. 1:2).

The work of restoration and creation from the chaos took 6 days and was perfect (Gen. 1). 1st day: The Lord restored the day and the night (Gen. 1:3-5). 2nd day: He restored the sky and the air for living things to breathe (Gen. 1:6-8). 3rd day: He restored the waters gather so that dry land could appear and plants could grow (Gen. 1:9-11). 4th day: He restored the stellar universe (Gen. 1:14-19). 5th day: He created animal life on the earth (Gen. 1:20-21). 6th day:He created man (Gen. 1:26-28). The entire stellar universe was restored on the 4th day of creation and restoration of the earth and heavens. The creation and restoration of the universe was for a distinct purpose. According to Genesis 1:14-19, the “lights” in the stellar universe surrounding the earth were to serve a 5-fold purpose: (1) Separate the day from the night on the earth. (2) Signs (3) Seasons (4) Days (5) Years.
