There is a false teaching going around about a former race of people who lived on the earth before Adam. This is a dangerous false doctrine straight from the devil himself. Another one of his lies to try and belittle the importance of Jesus Christ, and justify the lie of evolution, which teaches the earth is millions of years old, This false doctrine teaches that the world was wiped out by a flood called the flood of lucifer and that the entire human race was wiped out before Adam. They base their lie on a misrepresentation of (Genesis 1:28) which says; “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Actually the word replenish comes from the original Hebrew word “male, or mala”,which means to fill. This verse was originally written in Hebrew. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, which they started and we have been helping to fulfill that commandment ever since, for a little over 6000 years.( See: The Age of The Earth Chart) The Bible says “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth,” and it goes on to say he finished all of his creation in 6 days including Adam, and God rested on the seventh DAY! (Geneses Chapter 1). “And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul;” (I Corinthians 15:45a).In the book of (Luke Chapter 3) it gives an account of all Jesus relatives all the way back to Adam. Do you see how important it is to know the Word to fight the lies of the devil, and rightly divide the word of truth? (II Timothy 2:15). For a more in depth research into this subject look up “Replenish in Hebrew” on the internet. This lesson came about from a question from a new dear brother,and student to this web site, named Chris.
