How Old is the Earth?

By Chette Nichols Jr

In order to get a true Idea of how old the Earth is we must compare spiritual things with spiritual. God’s word shows us a creation of the earth where the morning stars sang at it’s creation.

Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Now this would put the creation of Angelic beings like arch-angels, angles, cherubims, seraphim and cherubs before the earth’s creation. There are some who puts the creation of these during the six days work of God which is after the second beginning of Proverbs 8:23 during the time of Genesis 1:3-31.

Proverbs 8:22-24 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.  I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.  When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

I believe Proverbs 8:22 – 24 gives us the Chronology of the creation of the Earth, depths and Fountains of Water.  There is one creation and two beginnings, One that is the Beginning of God’s way and the other is the beginning of his creation process prior to Gen 1:2 & 3 which could have taken place far before the Gen 1:2 events because what ever it was it took place after the Fountains of Water were created and as these fountains contained the water prior to some Judgement event which I link to Lucifer, a cherub who was a morning star and a son of God who was created before the earth was. Because in Gen 1:2 we find the water not in fountains but covering the face of the deep.

  1. There is no real basis in scriptures for a Geocentric view. However, when one considers that was on the earth at the time of making it habitable for man in Genesis Chapter one. It is conceivable that from the earth, when he made the stars, he set them in the firmament. Doing such from the earth possibly he cast them forth from off the earth or just off the surface of it. This giving us the effect that the stars are moving away from the earth which is scientifically verifiable. Genesis 1:14-17 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: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 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. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Both models of Heliocentric and Geocentric views show the planets and stars circling in the same way. So from here it is hard to say which is the center.
