When Did God Create the Angels?

When Did God Create the Angels?

My purpose for writing this is not to simply present another theory.  I will say this many times throughout this article; Satan’s purpose is to get us to doubt God’s Word (Genesis 3:1).  My purpose for writing this is to CHANGE YOUR MIND.  I don’t want you to doubt God’s Word.

For years I have made it a project of mine to study; creation, evolution, and dinosaurs.  The subject is fascinating and the subject of creation is the very foundations of our faith.  The enemy keeps pounding away at our foundation and we say, “It’s okay, he didn’t the church.”  Soon, the church starts to become wobbly…until it crashes.  I have read everything and watched everything I can get my hands on.  I have written articles and books on the subject.  I believe that Genesis 1 is literally true, as is the rest of the Bible, the King James Bible.

I believe that God created everything in six 24-literal days.  The King James Bible is VERY CLEAR on this.  There can absolutely be no mistake about this.  Whether you believe what it says is the only question.  Let me show you:

GENESIS CHAPTER ONE

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

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.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

In Genesis Chapter one we see the phrase, “And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” There can be no mistake.  “The evening and the morning”…this can be no other but a 24 hour day  Now, I understand the word day can mean different things.  For example:

“Back in my father’s day, he traveled during the day for a day.  There are three different uses of the same word, “day”, however, just as in the First Chapter of Genesis, we know the meaning by context.  What about the Hebrew?  Again, the Hebrew word for the word day is “yom”, can mean more than one thing.

It can refer to the 24-hour period of time that it takes for the earth to rotate on its axis (e.g., “there are 24 hours in a day”). It can refer to the period of daylight between dawn and dusk (e.g., “it gets pretty hot during the day but it cools down a bit at night”). And it can refer to an unspecified period of time (e.g., “back in my father’s day . . .”). It is used to refer to a 24-hour period in Genesis 7:11. It is used to refer to the period of daylight between dawn and dusk in Genesis 1:16. And it is used to refer to an unspecified period of time in Genesis 2:4.  So, what does yom mean in Genesis 1:5–2:2 when used in conjunction with ordinal numbers (i.e., the first day, the second day, the third day, the fourth day, the fifth day, the sixth day, and the seventh day)? Are these 24-hour periods or something else?  Could yom as it is used here mean an unspecified period of time?

Jesus and the apostles quoted from Genesis, arguably more than any other book of the Bible.  I believe that the evidence clearly shows that dinosaurs did not live millions of years ago, but they have lived on this earth for only about 6,000.  I believe that dinosaurs have always lived with man.  I believe that evolution is not even a theory, it is a fairytale. I believe that to deny the creation in Genesis 1 is to question the very credibility of Jesus and the Apostles.

Some will read this article and disagree with me on the time when God created the angels.  Of course, some of you may disagree with me on everything. J   You and I can disagree, as long as you and I agree with what God’s Word says.  I know many Christians that will simply hold that angels were created the first week or “early” first week”.  However, I believe that scripture can be more precise and show us an exact day during the creation week when God created the angels.  To be honest, as long as you are at least putting angels the first week and even after reading this article…and reading the Scriptures that I will share you still disagree…then I am ok.  And you should be too.  We have bigger fish to fry…souls that are lost…we do not need two mature Christians arguing about a day or two.

However, if you are from the camp that claims that God created angels before the first week, then we have a problem.  I dare say that if you are in this camp that you are stepping into heretical territory. Come back on this side of the line, the truth is over here.  In fact, since I am making bold statements, I will make one more.  If your position is that God made the angels before Genesis 1:1 then you sir/madam are in fact calling my God a liar!

If the hair just stood up on the back of your neck, GOOD, then I have your attention.  “I would never call God a liar!” you bark back at me.  Of course, you would not.  But I believe that inadvertently that is what some of you may be doing.  What I am about to teach you may contradict what you may have already learned and believed the truth to be.  A few assumptions if I may.  Both of us cannot be right.  One of us has to be wrong.  Both of us could be wrong.  So what do you do if what I am about to teach contradicts what you may have already learned?  First, keep in mind that this is not what I would refer to as a “Salvation Issue”.  The virgin birth, the resurrection, the deity of Christ and the creation account in Genesis all are examples of what I would call, “Salvation Issues”.

If you are questioning if God created angels in the first place or if God created them sometime other than the creation week in Genesis 1, then we need to have a different discussion.  As far as this discussion is concerned, and this may be dangerous but I will assume that you will agree that angels were created and that they were created during the first week.  The only thing left to settle is on what day during the first week was the angels settled?   Let’s look at the creation account in Genesis 1 to see if we can find the answer?

Verses 1-5 — FIRST DAY

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2And 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. {this will become important later}

3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day”.

“In the beginning…”  We have what we call a definite article here.  Meaning there was a beginning.  This is important.  The other thing I want to point out is who did the creating.  Genesis 1 says, God.   Now, we know and understand from further study of Scripture that God is actually three persons in one: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  The Son submits to the Father and the Holy Spirit submits to the Son.  John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:16, etc. all proclaim Jesus Christ as the Creator, not the Father and not the Holy Spirit.  This is important…Jesus is not a created being…He is the Creator.

On day one of the creation Verses 1-5 we see the Creator, Jesus Christ, creating heaven (not heavens as incorrectly translated in some versions, see my article on the three heavens) and earth.  The heaven, in this case, refers to outer space, everything beyond earth.  It also says that the Spirit of God moved upon the waters.  Then the Creator created light and darkness.   We see no evidence of angels being created on day one as recorded in the first five verses alone.  But pay close attention…

Verses 6-8 — SECOND DAY

6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”

God creates the sky.  The sky forms a barrier between water upon the surface and the moisture in the air.  At this point, earth would have an atmosphere.  Some talk about a layer of ice or water called a canopy around the earth that shields the earth from UV light.  This canopy came down at the time of the flight.    Read carefully, were there angels created on the second day?

Verses 9-13 — THIRD DAY

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

13And the evening and the morning were the third day.

God creates dry land. Continents and islands are above the water. The large bodies of water are named “seas” and the ground is named “land.”  The Creator creates dry land, the seas, and vegetation. God declares that all this is good.  We do not see any direct clear evidence of the creation of angels on day three of the creation week…pay close careful attention,  I am about to trick…play VERY close attention.

Verses 14-19 — FOURTH DAY

“ 14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. “

On the fourth day, God made the sun, the moon, the stars and the planets.  Complete with an established orbit so as to mark the passage of time (months, seasons, and years).

Verses 20-23 — FIFTH DAY

20”And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day”.

On the fifth day, the Creator created the living creatures of the water and of the air (The birds and the fish).

Verses 24-31 — SIXTH DAY

24”And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day”.

On the sixth day of creation, land animals, dinosaurs and man were created. At this time there was no death on the Earth, and God proclaimed it was good.  Up to this point at least in the Genesis account, we do not see, angels being created.  If it were that simple there would be no need for me to write this document.  When we look at God’s Word as a whole it becomes very clear that angels were created on day two of the creation week.  It was not a complete waste of time spelling out Genesis chapter one…it helped us to sort out exactly what was created on each day.  This will be important later on in this article and many of you had no idea as to the order.  And just because the order can get lost in a bunch of words I am going to outline it for us here:

The First Day The heaven, the earth, light and darkness.
The Second Day The atmosphere, (a canopy of water or ice)
The Third Day The land and plants
The Fourth Day The sun, the moon and the planets
The Fifth Day The birds and the fish.
The Six Day The Land animals, dinosaurs and man,

Remember that the issue of this discussion is not if He created them but when He created the angels.  If Satan can get you to doubt what God says then he has you!  The truth is God created angels and the truth is He created them early first week or creation and the truth is He created them on the second day.

Alright, we need to jump over to second Peter chapter three.  It is important for us to understand that Satan has been twisting the Word of God since the Garden of Eden.  Genesis 3:1 Satan says to Eve, Yea hath God said.  Right off the bat, we see Satan twisting God’s Word.  He is a professional; he knows every trick because he has been at this game for the last 6,000 years.  And if Satan can get us to doubt God’s Word then his job is finished.  Some have asserted, and to be honest, I have heard this argument before, that 2 Peter 3 shows that we are standing on the second earth. Their theory claims that the Millennium is actually the third coming.  Say what?  We used to say in Junior High, “brotha please!”   Ok, before we get too far ahead of ourselves and all the bad 80’s terminology starts coming out… let’s open our Bibles to 2nd Peter chapter 3 and get into the meat of this thing.

Verse 2 — “That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior:”

Verse 3 — “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,”

Verse 4 — “And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? {Doubting God’s Word} for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation{there God goes ago again, claiming there was a beginning}.

Verse5 — “For this they willingly are ignorant {In the Greek this means dumb on purpose :)} of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:”

Verse 6 — “Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:” (ahhh, interesting!  Here we have a clue.  Write this down.)

Verse 7 — But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

Verse 10 — “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” {sound like the big bang?}

The BIG BANG is going to happen…it just has not happened yet. 

Verse 13 — “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

Why would God send His son to die for a world that has already been destroyed?  In other words, is it enough for Jesus to die for one world or does He need to die for multiple earths?  I am not asking you to make a stretch or leap of faith here.  However, I am asking you to THINK!  Put to work that 4-pound organ between your ears that God designed.  2 Peter 3 is clearly speaking about future events; events that can be lined up with the book of Revelation. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night”2 Peter 3:10.

Paul also makes mention of this in 1 Thessalonians 5:2, For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”  When is the day of the Lord?  When will He come as a thief in the night?   At the second coming…a future event that has been prophesied in the Old Testament and the New Testament.  The second coming of Christ is an event that we as Christians long for.  This event is referred to as the RAPTURE 2 Peter 3:9 —The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  If 2 Peter 3 was talking about the past, why would God be concerned that none would perish and that all would come to repentance?  2 Peter is referring to the future and is supported by Revelation 21:1, And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Unknowingly, some Christians that teach that there was an earth before this one are teaching part of the Gap Theory.  Now, when you mention that they say, “no way”…look at the Gap Theory and you will see.  Basically, the Gap Theory claims there are millions of years between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.

We are still standing on the first earth.  Revelation 21:1 says, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”  Is there still a sea?  Yes.  This is an event that is yet to happen.  John Hagee preaches a sermon that states the first earth was destroyed when Satan fell.  This is not scriptural.  It preaches real good and he has nice graphics and all, but he is dead wrong! John Hagee is a heretic.

So when did Satan fall?  The answer can be found in Ezekiel 28:12-15,

Verse 12Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. {Satan was smart and beautiful}

Verse 13 — Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

Verse 14 — “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.

Verse 15 — “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

We can learn a lot from this scripture:

  • Satan was in Eden
  • Satan was Created
  • He was perfect until sin was found in him
  • He was in Eden until he sinned

Genesis 1:31, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

After the sixth day God had a look around at everything He had created.  He said, “yep, everything is very good.”

Satan could not have fallen before the sixth day.  God would not have said everything was, “very good” if Satan was running around being a bad guy.  He was probably a nice guy in Eden for a long time.  Another argument, but from my studies, this was probably about 100 years.  Can you imagine God saying everything was very good and the lion ripping guts out of the zebra or Satan running around doing what he does today or any of the terrible things we see today?  I think not.

The scriptures tell us that angels were created.  Psalm 148:2-5, etc.  This would include Satan.  In order to understand when angels were created, it is important to understand why angels were created.  Now, I understand we read about angels worshipping and praising God, but was that why they were created? (Revelation 5:11-14) According to Scripture angels were NOT created to worship and praise God, I understand that is something angels do…but that is not why they were created.  Yes, I did repeat myself.  Not because I have a speech impediment, but because for some reason people will come back to this point over and over again.   We need to be clear, angels do things…they sing they fly, they are messengers, etc., but these are not WHY they were created.

Hebrews 1:14, “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”

Hebrews 1:14 clearly says that angels are ministering spirits created to minister to manGenesis 28:12, Psalm 104:4, Matthew 4:11, Mark 1:13, Hebrews 1:7 could all be used to show that angels were created to minister to man.  Question?  If God created angels to minister to man, and He did (see Scripture); why would He need to create them millions of years before man got here?  I asked this question to a Pastor who was speaking on the topic of creation.  Of course I was fascinated by every word he spoke.  I loved his animation and the detail of his presentation.  When I question him about his theory that angels were created before Genesis 1:1 using the fact that angels were created to minister to man he responded this way:

“Did God create plants on the 3rd day and plants were for man to eat and God created plants before man needed them?”  God created everything before man I said.  And we are talking 3 days not millions of years.  If that is what he believes he is welcome to, but I believe the scriptures show otherwise.  I then went into my explanation of why angels were created on day two, what you are reading here.  His senior Pastor was standing within earshot of our conversation.  He walked over and said, “I have to go with Airrington on this.”  It’s not hard when you are right.  Hold on, I am not being arrogant…I have been wrong plenty of times.  Let’s continue…before I get myself into trouble…

Looking now back to Genesis 1:1 and then we will wrap this up with the final blow to the theory that angels were created before Genesis 1:1.  “Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heaven {no s, another argument for another day} and the earth.”  I would like to point out your Honor that God through Moses said that there was a beginning.  It is true that according to Psalm 90:4, the same man that wrote Genesis 1:1, said that God was outside of time and then Peter quoted Moses in 2 Peter 3:8.  So, once upon a time, there was no time.  I would also like to point out your Honor that the Bible was written for man’s benefit not for God’s benefit.  If God said there was a BEGINNING and Moses believed Him and wrote it down…then I believe Him too.  Why would God tell us that there was a beginning if this was really not the beginning?  Remember Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  Satan has been trying to confuse us and make us doubt God’s Word for the last 6,000 years.  If God says, “In the beginning…” we have no reason to doubt God except Satan trying and make us doubt what God said.  You know there is another name for this theory it is called the pre-adamite period.  Look that one up.

Job 38:4&7 tells us that the angels including Satan shouted for joy when God laid the foundations of the earth.  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.”  In Genesis 1:2 The earth was empty and nothing was here.  The earth was a ball of water.  The foundations were laid on the second day.  Genesis 1:3, “And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.”  On the third day, the foundations of the earth were formed.   Kevin, how can you be sure of this?

Psalm 104:1-5, “Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”

There are three significant things that I would like to point out from Psalm 104:1-5 (in the first two verses the psalmist is praising God):

  1. God creates the waters
  2. God makes the angels
  3. God laid the foundations of the earth

Notice the order of things in Psalm 104Job 38 says that the angels (including Satan) witnessed the laying of the foundations of the earth.  Genesis, Job, Psalm all point to angels being made prior to the laying of the foundations of the earth.  Psalm gives us the order of events and amplifies Genesis, the first 3 days of creation and again it says that angels were created as ministers.

Summary – Statements of Fact

  • God’s Spirit moves across the face of the water(Genesis 1:2)
    • “Who Layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters” (Psalm 104:3)
    • Angels were Created (Hebrews 1:14, Psalm 104:4)
    • Angels were Created to minister to man  (Hebrews 1:14, Psalm 104:4)
    • Angels witnessed the laying of the foundation of the earth(Job 38:7, Angels shouted for joy when the foundations of the earth were laid)
      • “Who laid the foundations of the earth…?” (Psalm 104:5)
      • Genesis, Job & Psalm all point to Angels being made prior to the laying of the foundations of the earth.
      • Exodus 20:11 God tells us that He created EVERYTHING in six days.

If this is not enough, I wonder what God Himself said?  For that, I will take you to the 20th chapter of Exodus where the 10 commandments are recorded.  Exodus 20:1, “And God spake all these words, saying,” Okay boys and girls…what you are about to hear next GOD SAID!  That’s right!  All 1189 chapters of the King James Bible were inspired only this one chapter was actually written by the finger of God (Exodus 20).  Exodus 20:11, “For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.”  God said that He created the heaven, the earth and the sea and ALL THAT IN THEM IS…in six days.  Including…angels.  The question you should not be asking is, “Did He say it?”  The question is do you believe He said it? By my count, God asked Job 84 rhetorical questions.  One of those questions can be found in Job 38:4:

“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?”

None of us were there when God laid the foundations of the earth.  Moses was not there when God laid the foundations of the earth (Day 3), but Moses believed God.  All we have is God’s Word and if we cannot take God’s Word when angels were created then we can’t take His Word when it comes to anything else.

At this point there should be little doubt in your mind that God created angels early in the week; probably the second day according to Job 38 and Psalm 104.  If we begin to doubt what God said, this is exactly what Satan wants us to do (Genesis 3:1).  If we doubt God’s Word on something as simple as when the angels were created…then what else will we doubt?
