Question? In Jude 1:6 which estate did the angels DID NOT keep?
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
To answer the question, these Fallen Angels had at one time along with Lucifer (Satan)lived on the Original Earth that God had created PERFECT this was their FIRST ESTATE that they DID NOT keep and they left (GAVE UP) this PERFECT HABITATION in a attempt to take over God’s Kingdom in heaven and overtake God and his Throne.
In Genesis 1:1 we have the recorded account of the creation of the Original PERFECT Earth.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
In Genesis 1:2 we have the recorded account that the earth BECAME “Without Form and Void”.
Genesis 1:2 And 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.
NOTE: The word WAS (Heb. Hyah) SHOULD BE translated as BECAME or HAD BECOME, indicating that something CAUSED the earth to BECOME UNPERFECT, and that something was Satan’s (Lucifer) and the Angels that followed with him in rebellion against God BECAUSE of this DELIBERATE REBELLION God judged Satan and these Fallen Angels by causing this earth to BECOME UNINHABITABLE by causing the whole earth to become completely flooded and then frozen and this would also explain the recorded Ice Ages by scientist in which Woolly Mammoths have been discovered FROZEN and amazingly preserved.
Isaiah 14:12-14, Ezekiel 28:14,15, and Revelation 12:4,9 gives the recorded account.
Isaiah 14:12-14 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! (13) For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Ezekiel 28:14-15 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. (15) Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Revelation 12:4,9 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
(9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
NOTE: Take notice of the words “Face of the Deep” and “Face of the Waters”. When the Lord got ready to make the Earth Inhabitable for humankind the Holy Spirit (God) MOVED UPON the “Face of the Waters”.
The word MOVE is the Hebrew word RACHAPH and means to BROOD, in other words to INCUBATE or to WARM UP.
So God had to Warm Up the earth BY unfreezing it to prepare it to be INHABITED by mankind.
In light of the Scriptures, I am CONVIENCED THROUGHLY that this earth is VERY, VERY OLD.
I FIRMLY BELIEVE that to teach or believe other wise ts to DISREGARD or to be BLINDLY INGORANT of the clear teaching of God’s Word.
It is of MY OPINION that the Young Earth Creation Theory HAS DONE Great Harm and blinded the minds of MANY christians and has ROBBED THEM of the truth of the Bible.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
