The question is, when did Satan fall? It is interesting to me how I have never really given it much thought. I thought it happened before creation. I am fine with putting the fall of Satan between verses 1 and 2 of Genesis chapter 1. I believe the Bible speaks of creation in 6 literal days. I also believe in a young earth.
The Chronological Bible starts with John 1:1. Jesus. The Word. Before anything was created there was Jesus as the Word. This verse made me think of Psalms 119:89, "Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven."
Then Psalms 90:2, before everything that was created, He is God.
Genesis 1:1, creation of heaven and earth
Isaiah 14:12-18, the fall of Satan
Ezekiel 28:13-18 description of the creation and fall of Satan
Genesis 1:2; Jeremiah 4:23-26; Isaiah 45:18; Genesis 2:4, description of the earth
This seems like such a rocky start for the creation of the earth. Let's see what happens the first week!
