Replacing the Fallen Angels gives a deeper understanding of God's ultimate purpose for creation and man's role in God's ultimate purpose. The book explores God's purpose from a time prior to creation as He with subtlety reveals to Isaiah, Ezekiel and then John the Apostle in the book of Revelation the real heart of a dilemma that arose in Heaven before the creation of the world. God found himself needing to replace some rebellious angels and man would be his solution.
In order to select from His creation those who would qualify for His Heavenly Kingdom, God had to give man something that he did not give His created angels. He gave man the opportunity to make choices between right and wrong, good and evil. This book explores this divine purpose of God and the effects of man's use of the choices that are before him.
