It was the purpose of Satan and his fallen angels to corrupt the human race and thereby do away with pure Adamite stock through whom the seed of the woman should come. This would avert their own doom and make it possible for Satan and his kingdom to keep control of the planet earth indefinitely. It was said to Adam and Eve that the seed of the woman should defeat Satan and restore man’s dominion.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The only way then for Satan to avoid this predicted defeat was to corrupt the pure Adamite line so that the coming of the seed of the woman into the world would be make impossible. This, he tried to accomplish by sending some of his fallen angels to marry the daughters of men as in,
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they choose.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
. . .and producing the giant nations through them.
There are two such eruptions of fallen angels taught in Gen. 6:4: There were giants in the earth in those days (before the flood); and also after that (after the flood), when the sons of God (fallen angels) came in unto the daughters of men (any daughters of men — Cain, Seth and others), and they bare children to them (to the angels).
Satan almost succeeded in his plan during the first eruption, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth; and of all the multitudes Noah and his sons were the only pure Adamites left to be preserved by the ark. (Click to Article)

Why is a Creation Conference Important? Why does it Matter?
The debate is ongoing: did the world evolve or was it created? If it was created, did it take billions of years or was it made by God in six 24-hour days? Was there a global flood? How does the newest scientific evidence match up with biblical accounts? Where does Darwin fit into the picture? Who is telling the truth? A “Science and the Bible” conference will address these questions and more. Regardless of your opinions on the subject, this conference should be interesting and challenging to your thinking.
We all look at the world through a pair of glasses (our personal preconceptions) which affect how we interpret the world around us and how we make decisions about what to believe, who to follow, where to put our faith, or how to develop our opinions in life. Our worldviews can be naturalistic, humanistic, biblical, or a combination. Our starting point can greatly influence our ongoing interpretations of evidence. Many Americans used to have as their foundation a biblical worldview, but that has changed to a more naturalistic or humanistic approach to life. Many now believe current and troubling social issues are symptoms of this foundational change. Recent observational science and discovery seems to support a creator and point us back to the authority of the Holy Bible. The Bible has had more impact around the world than any other book ever written. The Bible contains an ancient account of historical science.
Today through advances in technology, science, computers, microscopes, telescopes, geology, astronomy, medicine, and in general because of the overwhelming increase of available information and knowledge, biblical answers seem reasonable for many of the most common questions about our origins. Have these questions already been answered? Is the science of origins as taught in the schools factual? Has science disproven the Bible? A number of scientists are finding reasons to answer, “No.” New scientific evidence can shed light on the age of the earth and universe, creation, and dinosaurs. This new evidence does not have widespread coverage, so the purpose of this conference is to make it available for consideration. Some evidence seems to indicate a younger earth than has previously been taught, and it is very compelling. New evidence seems to support the creation week as written in Genesis 1 and Exodus 20:11.

GOD IS AT WORK ON YOUR BEHALF
by Gary Wilkerson
The city walls of Jerusalem were being rebuilt but Nehemiah saw sin, bondage
and discouragement beginning to captivate the hearts of the people.
“As soon as it began to grow dark . . . I commanded that the doors should be
shut and gave orders that they should not be opened until after the Sabbath”
(Nehemiah 13:19, ESV).
In this passage Nehemiah is a type of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of God is
saying, “I know your propensity, I know the pulls. I know the temptation will
be to take the Sabbath and make it unholy . . . and you will forget Me.” So
even before it was dark, Nehemiah closed the gates.
Your heavenly Father is on the move in your life to solve your problem even
before you know you have a problem. God is on the move on your behalf even
before the sin sets in, even before it takes hold. God is working! The old
Puritans called this a prevenient grace—grace at work before the temptation
comes. Even before Adam and Eve got out of the Garden, even before sin began to
take hold in the fruit, God said to the serpent, “The Son (He was talking of
His Son, Christ Jesus) will crush your head” (Genesis 3:15, paraphrase mine).
After deceiving Adam and Eve, before Satan slithered out and began to move
throughout the whole world to deceive the sons of Adam and Eve, God said, “I
have a plan in action.”
This is not God standing on the sidelines saying, “If you fall into that sin,
come to Me and repent and I will forgive you again.” Yes, He does that, but it
is so much more than that. God is working on your behalf even before that
temptation ever comes to you, building up a wall in your life. He is building
up grace and maturity in you, leading you through the spiritual process of your
growing to where you are strengthened—line upon line, precept upon precept.
God is already planning for your victory!
