In this series we have observed God’s two creations, and how each fell. Today, we will explore further the 2 old creations. We will see how God handled the old creation of Satan and the fallen angels, and how God restored the new creation of mankind from the knowledge of sin and death. As we see the role of these 2 creations, I want you to ask yourself again. Are you walking in the new creation, or do you still walk in the nature of the old creation?

Every kind of precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald. Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold, prepared on the day of your creation. 14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for I had ordained you. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the fiery stones. 15 From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you. 16 By the vastness of your trade, you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mountain of God, and I banished you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. 17 Your heart grew proud of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor; so I cast you to the earth; I made you a spectacle before kings. 18 By the multitude of your iniquities and the dishonesty of your trading you have profaned your sanctuaries. So I made fire come from within you, and it consumed you. I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the eyes of all who saw you. 19 All the nations who know you are appalled over you. You have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’” Berean
