The Apocalypse Revealed 6
God allowed the Fall to happen. He did not intervene. He was “resting” for a “day”. During this time Satan and the wicked angels were active on earth (Genesis 3:1, 6:1-4; Revelation 12:1). The period of “rest” ended with the death of Adam after 1000 years. God then brought about the destruction of the Flood, which removed from the earth the evil which had been brought about by the wicked angels – without destroying the Gnostic remnant of Noah and his family (Revelation 12:15-16), or the hybrid progeny of the wicked angels and humankind, indestructible spirit in nature but bound to the earth. (These are the demons found in the Gospels; see the Book of Enoch.) Unfortunately, the Gnosis cannot be inherited by the flesh; Gnostics remain the true seed among the tares of humanity. The eventual millennial rule of Christ may be seen as another period of “rest” during which the wicked angels will not this time be allowed to take control of the earth: Satan will be bound during the restorative reign of the second Adam.
