Yes i agree with you and i commented after reading it. However one thing to not is Job 38:4-7 donot make the Gap theory flawed on the contrary it reinforces Gap theory as the only correct explanation of Biblical Creation.This is because in Genesis 1.1 God creates Heavens first and then only earth.Since Job 38:4-7 says,Angels were already created when God laid the foundation of earth we can conclude that God created Angels either before ,after or along with his creation of heavens. Most probably it could be before the creation of Heavens that Angels were created because otherwise God would have mentioned in the creation order of Genesis 1.1,also because Angels are spirit beings like ourselves and live/die forever-Revelation 20:10. God bless you.

Existense of heavens and the way they were created are also fundemental to Gap Creationism/Theory.So let us examine it. Scriptures speak about 3 heavens-1-Earths Atmosphere-Sky. 2-Outer Space-Angelic/Satanic realm. 3-The real Heaven-Dwelling place of God. Genesis 1:7 says-"And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so." Here the Bible is saying that God established a three-heaven structure between the Earth and the heavenly abode of the Ancient of Days. The firmament is the abode of the sun, moon and stars, and the galaxies. In other words, it is speaking of the entire physical universe. And the Bible says that God placed waters above that firmament. In doing so He placed a "Sea" between the footstool of His heavenly throne and the less than pure physical universe down below. Also make note that in Genesis 1:8 the Lord God says nothing about this being good. Although God says, "it was good" concerning days 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 He does not say that about the work of the second day. Ever wondered about that? The reason is very simple. Although this division was not good, it was necessary to protect the creation from the flaming glory of God's Holiness. Nothing impure can stand in His presence, and even the presence of a regenerated heavens and earth was not completely pure before God (see Job 25:5). Also read 2 Peter 3:5-7-"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." Notice that in the passage that the earth is said to be "standing out" of the water and "in" the water(2 Peter 3:5). In our English language, these descriptive terms suggest that these particular waters were not confined to the surface of the planet; they overflowed the entire planetary system. The Bible says that part of the planet was "standing out" from these waters. That is to say, the sphere of the planet was partially "overflowed" and the location of the bulk of the waters was external to the Earth itself. The Bible says the planet was "in the water" of this particular flood (think of a round fishing floater bobbing in a lake). In other words, part of the Earth is protruding from the waters and not simply just covered by waters on the surface. The literal English wording of this passage does not describe a flood event confined to the Earth's surface. This passage describes a deluge that raged across the solar system, and beyond. Our solar system and outer space are the Second Heaven of the Bible's three heavens. Try to draw this mental picture: Think of a dark and ruined solar system with water strewn throughout it like one big messy galactic spill. That is what Genesis 1:2 is speaking about. And imagine the planet Earth drifting awash in this roaring and rolling, formless mess and orbiting around a dead star. Where would such waters have come from? Well, it is an established scientific observation that aging stars create and give off lots of water. Certainly there must have been lots and lots of stars in the heavens that were "of old" and, if something had caused the entire cosmos to have gone dark and all the stars died, then there would be excessive water everywhere throughout space. If that was indeed the case, then all those extinguished stars would need to be reignited to be seen in our present heavens. Scientists find existense of a great amount of water on the edge of our universe-Black holes-www.wired.com/2011/07/black-hole-h... Modern science consider Black Holes as the borders of our physical Universe.We are seeing only 3 or 4 dimensions( "4" if Time is included as a dimension).But Science today has discovered up to 8 more dimensions in compressed form-F theory/Father theory making a total of 12 dimensions. Scientists consider black holes as the edge/border of our physical universe into something outside were all dimensions exist.What is important is that scientists have found out existense of water in these borders of our universe known as black holes,not some water but trillions of trillion times water than that of all the earths oceans and water systems combined as this link will show you-www.wired.com/2011/07/black-hole-hol... So let it be ,as in Psalm 148:2-5- 2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! 3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! 4 Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens! 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created. Only those who are holy can see God.We are made holy not by our merit ,but by the sinless blood of Lord Jesus Christ shed on the cross for our sins.Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of all mankind shedding his sinless blood to wash away the sins of all those who will trust in him.And all those who trust in Lord Jesus Christ can have eternal life. Scriptures speak of our eternal residence not on this heaven or earth now ,but in New Jerusalem,New Heaven and New Earth. Revelation 21:1,2- 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

It's clear that you jumped into false conclusion,Angels were indeed created in Genesis 1:1-Look at the order it was heavens and then only earth.God should have created angels along with heavens or before or after that,but before the creation of earth in Genesis 1:1. Angels were created in Genesis 1:1 according to Job 38:4-7 --The Lord asks Job; "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone- while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” See here God has started the creation of earth only,heavens and angels have already been created.Read again Genesis 1:1-In the begining God created Heavens and the Earth.Only after God created Heavens and Angels he laid the foundation for Earth.That is what Job38:4-7 says. So it's clear that God created Heaven,Angels and Earth in that order in Genesis 1:1 and that Gap Creationism/Gap Theory is the only correct explanation for origin of universe-Heavens and Earth. It is clear, then, that the angels were created in the beginning” at Genesis 1.1, and that from Genesis 1.3 onwards re-creation and restoration works of God starts which shall only be completed by Revelation 22:21-That is the time of eternity of New Heavens,New Earth and New Jerusalem.
