A Trillion? A Billion? 100 Million? How many years ago did God create the original heavens and the earth? Does it matter? The most important thing to know is that God was there. He has always been and always will be. One thing is for sure God is perfect. Anything He would create would also be perfect. Can you imagine the heavens and the earth in there original form? They must have been beautiful. Probably beyond your and my imaginations.
God also had created families of angels, rulers, and powers out there in the heavens. One of his special angels was named Lucifer. He was called son of the morning. He was beautiful. He walked in the garden of God. He was covered in precious stones like gold, diamonds, emeralds... He was extremely wise. He was on the Holy Mountain of God. He was perfect when he was created. Lucifer became prideful because of his beauty. He thought he was better than God and that he didn't need God.
Life without God is sin. Lucifers pride brought sin into existence and some of the angels followed him too.
Sin sent Gods perfect creation into chaos. And the earth became formless, empty, filled with darkness. But God's life giving spirit hovered over this wasted earth. And God decided to clean things up.
Job 38:4-7 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
II Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
