For those who have watched the Genesis Prophecy, the following table gives a summary of the first page from the Book of Genesis: the blueprint for mankind’s determined history.
Yes, the seven days of Creation is an allegory of God’s great plan.

This particular interpretation (which I call Interpretation One) was once esteemed as the most popular viewpoint, having reference to Antiochus IV Epiphanes who ruled during the middle stages of the Seleucid Empire for a period of time in the second century BC (circa 175 BC to 164 BC). Does it solve the famous Daniel 9 prophecy? Well, I think you’ll know what I’ll have to say on the matter…
Over the years, it seems that people tend to mix up all the labels to do with “Satan”, the “Devil” and “demons”… thinking that each ‘entity’ is synonymous with each other. This is again a half-truth. Just as we have God the Father is “spirit” (John 4:24), we also have Jesus who has a “body” and has the “spirit” of the Father (e.g. John 17). In other words, the Father has ‘no form’ as He is only spirit (John 4:24) contrasted to Jesus who has ‘form’ (i.e. Jesus has a body and has breath). Two separate ‘God-entities’ but united in common purpose. With this in mind, how do we come to grips with understanding Satan and the Devil?
