As a supplement to The Basics and The Kingdom of God, this booklet details the Scriptures which led us to believe Genesis 1:2 records the result of judgment upon Satan and his rebellious angels when God cast them to the earth. We do not espouse the Gap Theory, but restoring the context of judgment in Genesis 1:2 restores the continuity of God’s mission from Genesis to Revelation.
