Psalm 8:5-6 says that man rules over other planets, not angels.
Angels ruled them before man was created as did Lucifer.

What about Pre-Adamite Man?

Given that men of the Adamite World have dominion over the stars and such, isn't it reasonable to conclude that Pre-Adamite Men were also given similar dominion over the stars and such?

It is an awesome thought to think that man has dominion over the stars. I love the story of Joshua commanding the sun to stand still.

Hi Billy,


Had Adam not sinned there would have been no death and man would have eventually had to move out into the universe as the population outgrew earths capacity to sustain it. I believe this will be the case in the new heavens and the new earth.

If a person lived long enough to do this, and picked up one grain of sand on the east coast of America, then walked across America and dropped it on a beach on the west coast, and then walked back to the east coast, and picked up another grain and walked back west and dropped it on a beach, and continued until all the grains of sand on the east coast were on the west coast, then proceeded to do the same only from the west to the east, that probably would only represent a tiny split second of eternal time.

God has been around for eternity, He is a creator and has been creating for all eternity past. God the Father, the Word who became flesh both work and have been working throughout eternity, not sitting around on clouds playing Jews harps then one moment in time decide to do something; John 5:17, But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

God created the Heaven, first, for the angels, then the earth for man. How long the have been in existence before Lucifer and one third of God's innumerable angels rebelled is not mentioned in Scripture but we can assume it was a very, very, long time ago. Not only was the Earth destroyed, but also many localised stars and planets. Only have to look at the moon full of creators all over it.

Did you know?
That the Earth is more than 6,000 years old and that there were inhabitants on this Earth before Adam?

This is true. There have already been 6,172 years from Adam to 1948, as we shall see in our future lessons. Not only this, but the Bible teaches that there was a social system on the Earth that was destroyed by a great flood long before Adam. This flood is pictured in Gen. 1:2 as covering the Earth, before the six days in which Adam was created. It is also mentioned in Ps. 104:5-9. Peter speaks of it as “the world [Greek, kosmos, “social order”] that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens and the earth, which are now [since the six days of restoration], by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire” to be purified, resulting in “a new heavens and a new earth” (2 Pet. 3:4-13).

The cause of the first flood before Adam was the fall of Lucifer and the rebellion against God of one-third of His own angels, along with the people who lived on the Earth over whom Satan ruled. That Satan ruled the Earth and led an invasion into Heaven to cast God out, is clear from Isa. 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:11-17; Lk. 10:18; 1 Tim. 3:6. The devil was defeated and the Earth was then cursed and placed under water as in Gen. 1:2; Ps. 104:5-9; 2 Pet. 3:5-7. All life was totally destroyed, including birds, men, vegetation, and all cities were destroyed in which the pre–Adamites lived (Jer. 4:23-26). In the restoration of the Earth in six days, as in Gen. 1:3–2:25, God told Adam to “replenish” the Earth. Adam and Eve were the first inhabitants of this present creation.
