Angels Marry Women
This is a subject covered many times before, by me and others, with enough simple logic and scripture to combat the false notion that spirit angels married flesh and blood women and had half breed children that grew into giant monstrosities -- according to the fake book of Enoch these giant offspring grew to as tall as 240 feet. the Book of Enoch is a "fairy tale" -- this has all been covered, however, an article came out in a prominent Evangelical magazine that is fully entrenched in the Evangelical movement. They teach the doctrine of the Rapture doctrine (where the living are "caught up first" to meet the Christ) and the Imminent return (He can come at any moment) -- now, it seems, they also support the teaching that the “sons of god” in Genesis 6 really means, “angels of god”. This seems hard to believe or to understand how they can join in this idiotic teaching, especially when you see the truth they do present and the quality of their magazine. The Midnight Call has printed and article where they mention this business of "angels marrying flesh" that I will be taking issue with. I will be taking issue with their teaching about angels of God marrying flesh and blood women. half breed
After reading their published article I was inspired to write another article of my own on this same subject again. This time I thought I would like to take a different approach – I will not get into all of the in and outs of every view but instead refer you back to my two previous articles (Go To: Angels Marry Women? Part 1 / Angels Marry Women? Part 2) where you will find more detail in the debate exposing this false doctrine.
In this article I will rehash some things and attempt to make sense of the flawed thinking of others so well versed in the Scriptures themselves. In my previous articles on this subject I was a bit harsh, claiming the false doctrine is a doctrine of devils. I make no apology for this after all, what else could explain it? After all, I am using Scripture to make this judgment.
(1Ti 4:1) Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Fire Storm of Error
The four main verses in the center of this fire storm is found in Genesis 6:1-4. When you look at these few verses from Genesis they are clearly being twisted to say something they do not say. It is my hope and prayer you will come to see this as clearly as I do. Now, let's take a look at these verses and see what they are really saying and how they have to be twisted or added to in order to make a case for the false doctrine circulating throughout the Evangelical movement teaching that angels came to earth, without permission, of course, saw how beautiful women of the flesh were and decided to take some wives for themselves and in this corrupted union came giant babies that grew into giant known as the Nephilim. And, if you read the book of Enoch that has been circulating around, and that some use to prove this error you will read that these giants, these Nephilim, grew to over 40 feet tall (some say 200 feet) and began to eat everything in sight eventually turning on the little people and eating them. Be careful when you quote Enoch, someone might actually get a copy of this fictional book and read it. This, however, is the view of many in this twisted tale of angels marrying women and having giant children. From here, with this idiotic teaching in the background, let us proceed to the four verses in question and see if we can sort this out.
GENESIS 6:1-4 – What Does It Really Say?
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
My Comment: Let’s see, no mention of women? Men began to “multiply” and produced daughters. No mention of sons? Is that important? Not really as it is assumed an intelligent mind will understand you cannot have “daughters” without the fathers having a wife, or at least a girlfriend, so we know there must have been women giving birth to “daughters”. This is a prime example of simple logic where every little detail is not supplied to convey a message under the assumption the read possess some common sense – in this case -- men do no have babies without women and if men are multiplying then so too are women.
I don't think Evolutionist, even in all of their absurdities try to tell anyone that daughters appear without mothers, right? Or men appeared out of nothing -- or do they? Oh, yeah, some do, it seems, suggesting "spontaneous" appearances of species -- creation -- strike that last word, they would never use it, better stay with "spontaneous appearance" – no, really, that is a theory floating for some years now. The benefit to this new/old theory is it eliminates the need for the missing links. Anyway, back to the point -- "men" is likened to "mankind", human beings, including women, but it is of note that these men are not identified as anything special – men in general.
The point here, with this leading verse -- girls were coming forth from men of no particular quality and this by and through their women friends or wives. This is leading us to the next verse, which takes us to the point of the subject -- another type of man, or men called the "sons of God" began to focus on the daughters of these other men.
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
My Comment: These “sons of God”, apparently exercised some kind of dominion over the other men mentioned in verse one. We are not given details but it is mentioned they took these “daughters” of these other men and made them “wives”. This would indicate they did not take by force otherwise the concept of marriage would not have entered into the account. A King, for example, wants to take a wife from among the common subjects so a deal is struck, the father is paid a handsome sum, given a title, and some land, usually, and the King takes a wife. If the King, on the other hand, taken women by force they are not usually married, and that is not how you take a wife. In this verse a “lust” is demonstrated by a class of men known as the “sons of God”, more accurately, the “sons of gods”. This would indicate a group of men recognized by the “other men” as separate from them and there appears to be no objection from either side concerning these unions.
Here we see the “sons of God” taking a fancy toward the “daughters” of the other men. It does not appear the fathers of the girls object to this as not objection is recorded. Wouldn’t you think that if alien beings, angels or any other creature from outer space, invading earth and taking your daughters as wives there would be some kind of objection, some kind of struggle, some kind of outrage?
There is all sorts of things wrong with this view of “angels marrying” humans and most is covered in my first two articles, Angels Marrying Women. What we do see is two types of men – men and sons – this would indicate both are males capable of having children. Let us not forget, our Savior told us, in His own voice, that angels do not marry, not only that, He went on to say they do not give in marriage either.
(Mar 12:25) For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
(Gal 3:28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Granted, this last verse is not a specific declaration that there will be no males or females, but when you consider the purpose of being male and female in the procreation of species one could say this is no longer necessary, once we enter the spirit realm in our new spirit bodies. There is to be no racial nor sexual differences once we become like the Messiah. What the teachers of the “angels marrying human women” are suggesting is that angels, once having come to earth sprouted male genitals. Others, realizing the error in this, instead of adjusting to the truth, tell us these alien angels toke of “wives” by the act of possession. One group says the angels possessed the women while others say they possess the husbands and by proxy gave birth to alien beings that became the Nephilim.
If you continue down this false road and insist these angels came to earth, sprouted genitals and actually had physical sex with human women you would then have to assume they produce sperm and with all of this similarity to human men there must then be female angels too. Wait, no mention of female angels anywhere in the Scriptures, only on the minds of men. I think we should stand on what our Savior had to say about the angels, “…neither marry, nor are given in marriage…”
The concept that a term like “sons of God” is not applicable to humans, and applies only to angels, is ridiculous but this is what the false teaching is saying. This, however, is contradicted by the New Testament writings which abound with references to the “children of God” and if “children” then certainly “sons” and “daughters”, wouldn’t you think?
(John 11:51) And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that YaHshua should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. (Children of God, in reference to Israel)
(Rom 9:8) That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
(2Co 6:18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
(Hosea 1:10) Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
That last verse is from the Old testament, of course, and demonstrates the same principle. People, even the people of Israel were and have been and are going to be called “Sons of God”. This is not a title reserved for angels, in fact, this is not a title for angels at all.
Tell me you see it, please – what is it that’s makes a “child of God”? It would be the acceptance of the Gospel Message about YaHshua as Savior and the acceptance of YaHshua as your Savior. Children of the flesh are those of this world, doing their own thing, so to speak, some very religious, practicing and following the traditions of men, some actively pursuing the worship demons and, of course, those in denial of any god at all -- these are to be outside of those “…counted for the seed”. It is the children of the PROMISE that are COUNTED for the SEED. Can you see this? There is a difference between the two groups (of men) but all are of the same flesh and blood, at least for now.
So, continuing with this thought and taking it back to the world that was, before the Great Flood, can we now see the “sons of God” counted as the seed just as believers are today? There were some, like us today, that heard and believed the Gospel Message concerning our Lord as it was preached to them by Enoch. Believe it or not the world of then received and ultimately turned away from the plan of “salvation”. Reading Jude 14-16 we see Enoch, seventh from Adam, preaching of the coming of the Lord, the Gospel message. This is the same New Testament letter the false and deceived teachers use but fail to notice this part –
It would only be natural to assume, then, that believers of Enoch’s preaching would be “sons of god”, separating them from other men, just as it is today. Certainly there is the other view, that the “sons of God” were the sons of Adam marrying the sons of Cain, and a couple of other ideas which I have elaborated on in Part 1 and Part 2. Since the New Testament and the presentation of our Savior to the world the Mystery is revealed -- Christians of faith are the "sons and daughters of God". Again we see the Bible is of no private interpretation, interpreting itself.
We need to let the writings of from the Old and New Testament tell us what they mean as these are the words delivered to the Prophets and the Apostles as they were either shown or moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21).
(2Co 6:17-18) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
If we are “children of God” wouldn’t this mean I can call myself a “son of God”? We know our Savior came in the flesh and is called the Son of God, and we know YaHshua called Him Father and he, the Christ, instructed us to also call on the One he revealed as his Father, our Father. This is undeniable and as believers this is what we confess –
(Heb 2:10-12) For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth (make Holy) and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren (brothers), Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
Listen, the truth is the “sons of God” were in the world before were those that began to call on the Name of God. The people in Adam’s time heard the gospel Message, they knew the of the coming plan of salvation, but they began to break ranks and marry outside of their beliefs, outside of the truth delivered to them by Enoch (Jude 1:14).
My Comment: In the Earth before, that is, before the flood, the Creator’s Spirit was with men. In the Hebrew dictionary the Word “strive” has several meanings, rule, judge, minister, and plead – indicating a presence – this should be a concept the Christian, of all people, should understand. He withdrew His Spirit as it was a constant struggle leading to the ultimate rejection. Man lived longer than we do today because His Holy Spirit was present as a force for life, this, of course is my opinion but in this view we see the reason for the long ages and then the shortening of the age of men. We see a point in the first Earth history where YAHWEH withdraws his Spirit and then limits the years of man, recognizing man as only flesh. Apparently the long years made the people of then seem to think they were immortal. Even today men act and talk as if they are immortal, speaking of themselves in terms of immortality refusing to acknowledge there degenerate condition. It is like all of humanity being in denial. Just think how much stronger this delusion of immortality would be for those living to such extreme ages -- would not some begin to think they were as gods?
Gen 6:4 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.
My Comment: Here is the verse that gets so twisted you have to think it is on purpose, or, is influenced by doctrines of demons (1 Tim 4:1, look it up). “There were giants...” when? “ … In those days” and that is what it means, not that these giants were the product of the "sons of god" marrying daughters of men! It is a time set, a marking of when this began to happen, of when those called the “sons of God” began to marry outside of their faith or outside of their birthright as leaders with a religious responsibility. Once these devout men began to break ranks and marry women not of their belief it would only be a matter of time when these wives would bring their false gods to the table. Men, for the most part, want to please their women – men want a peaceful house and some women, from the beginning have taken advantage of this. We have a mighty example of this from the very beginning in Adam to King Solomon.
King Solomon, a very wise, and blessed man. If the King had one weakness it was women, women outside of his own race and faith -- he liked alien women, so we have a good example of a “son of God” (Israel is called the children of God, and the Kings were recognized the chosen of God. Other Kingdoms even called their Kings, sons of the gods). A King of Israel, looking on foreign women with a lustful eye and taking from them wives, as many as he chose. Does this sound familiar?
There were seven hundred royal bloods and three hundred concubine, a thousand wives – these were daughters of other men, from other nations (1 Kings 11:1-6. So, what happened to King Solomon, once a "son of God", King of Israel, ruler over the "children of God"? These wives of other men, from other nations, brought with them their false gods and hounding King Solomon for equal rights in worship turned all of Israel into a very religious nation.
We are told as Solomon aged these foreign women turned the mind of the King to other gods. That's right, these daughters of common men (non-Israelite introduced the "children of God" to a variety of deities, customs and traditions "Authorized by the King". They filled the Temple with pagan idols and decorated the forest and high places with phallic symbols of Bel/Baal and Asherah and Ishtar and many other gods. The people had become very religious as they prayed on every hilltop, sacrificed on every altar, went to church often as they honored every god, that is until King Josiah came along, many years after the death of Solomon.
(2Ki 23:4) And the king (Josiah) commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD (YHWH) all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
Eventually statues of wood and stone (idols) representing these false gods of all the “host of heaven” that had been set up in the Temple were removed by a new King, a young King. Under King Solomon’s rule Israel had become so religious they had nearly forgotten who YHWH was in favor of all the other gods, not only Baal, but of all the host – they were worshiping everything. The worship of the God of Israel became buried in the religious enthusiasm for other religions introduced by the “daughters of men”.
Read about the rediscovery of YHWH and how religious the people were for other false gods and how YHWH was rediscovered if for only a little while in 2 Kings 22-23, and you will see how thoroughly the people of God had lost the worship of YHWH even though the Temple was in their midst. They filled the Temple with pagan idols and the priest were in on it. Consider the Temple today and recognize the similarities.
(2Co 6:16) And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will live in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. NRKJV
The Books of Moses were lost and rediscovered and King Josiah (YosYaH), cut deep into his heart, set about ripping into the false religions and restoring the true worship honoring the only real God of Israel, YHWH. I see this as a parallel of the Christian Religion today. Christianity has been flooded with pagan practices and customs as to lose the site of YHWH and of the true Christ, YaHshua. The Christian Church has migrated to calling on a strange name a name that never existed until around 400 years ago. The Christians follow customs cut from the pagan world of the past and present. The modern Christians engage in Holiday traditions as opposed to the Holy Days and Sabbaths of the Holy Bible. In this we see, again, as in the days of Noah, men of God, children of God, sons of God, turning into something else, accepting the lie.
My comment: This verse, following on the heels of verses 1-4 should be the end of the discussion. "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man..." can it possibly be any plainer? Not the "...wickedness of the angels...", but “of man” -- man, men -- no mention of angels and not the slightest hint concerning "fallen angels". What is the context, then? "...and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." Man's thoughts, man's heart and no angels around or even acknowledged. It seems God can see the “wickedness of man” but the teachers of the false doctrine cannot.
The verses in Genesis 6 have nothing to do with "fallen angels" marrying and giving others in marriage. Instead of this we see and account that is all about men and what they were doing. The KJV has once again clouded the waters of biblical interpretation. The hearts (minds) of men is certainly evil and exhibits this historically and in minor ways as well.
You can pick up one Bible dictionary and will side with the fable of the pagans, "gods marrying human women” and yet another Bible dictionary will not. Perceived authorities can be quoted, some pro, some con, but as we move closer to the end it is surprising how this false teaching has grown among the Christian, especially the Evangelical Dispensationalist – those teaching the other false doctrine of the Rapture.
You can pick for yourself which theory appeals to you. For me and others we stick with the scriptures and what our Savior, YaHshua, had to say about angels. Believe YaHshua and you will see something is wrong with the Gen 6:1-4 and with a little research you will find the alternate translation of, "sons of the kings", this makes more sense as when you get literal with the KJV, "sons of god" the term for "god", in this case, is the Hebrew "elohim" meaning "gods", so the KJV should read, "sons of gods, many gods, and is not speaking of the Creator God, or the God YHWH (YaHweh) at all. Even the Jewish scholars that teach this false doctrine ignore this simple fact. Not all Jewish scholars, of course, support this false teaching that angels equals YHWH's sons taking flesh to wed and bed. It does appear, however, that the origin of this doctrine has Jewish sources outside of Scripture.
There you have it, again, with a few more observations. King Solomon is a prime example of what happened on the Earth before, with men of religious authority or ruler ship, the kings of the time, or even the ruling class of Adams children, being influenced and tempted by women outside of their own faith or class. Women have a very spiritual nature, more so than men, and for this reason they are prey to every kind of "spirit". Satan went after Eve for a reason. He had plenty of time to assault Adam but found it easier to get to Eve and through Eve to Adam.
We see another example in the story of Elijah. Everyone knows the story of Jezebel and how she sought to kill Elijah (Eli- Jah, means; My God is YaH). She was the alien Queen of Israel, not an Israelite but a Phoenician. She married the King of Israel, Ahab, and brought her false gods and customs, her primary god being Baal (Baal means; Lord, or Master). Apparently during this time there were many god under the banner of Baal, many Lord gods, with many different names.
It would seem the children of God, the Israelites, or, at least, the men of Israel have a weakness for foreign women. This is the very thing (the secret of Israel's weakness) the prophet Balaam gave to King of Moab, Balac, as a method of corrupting the children of Israel in an attempt to stop Israel from crossing the Jordan river threatening to over run the children of Moab -- see Numbers 25:1 and Numbers 31:18. Balaam refused to put a curse on the children of Israel but eventually revealed the weakness of the children and of the “Mighty Men” before the YHWH. Apparently Israelite women were plain (by Moabite standards), by comparison to the made up and haughty women of the sex temples of Moab.
The "Mighty men" of Israel saw the daughters of Moab as beautiful and took of them any they desired. To stop this insult Israel was struck and many of Israel's mighty men came to their end at the hands of their brothers and kin remaining true to YaHWeH. When this disaster came to an end the invasion finally commenced and the king of Moab, along with Balaam were killed.
Genesis tells us a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife (to please her), this is a natural instinct of men (Gen 2:24). Looking back at the account of Adam and Eve we see Eve introducing Adam to a false religion (so to speak), turning from the true words of their Creator by listening to another word, lying words, mixed with the words of YHWH, deceiving them into doubting what they were originally told.
They chose to go with words added to His word putting a subtle twist on the truth, “…you will not die.” In the true religion they originally did not question His word of truth, their faith rested in believing their Creator, YHWH, as small children believe their father but eventually they were choosing to listen to a lesser authority, Satan. Here, then, is another example of a “son of God”, Adam, falling under the influence of a woman. Make no mistake, Adam is guilty as sin -- he was standing right next to Eve, and while she took to the temptation, accepting the idea YHWH may have not told the truth, doubting Yahweh’s words, she turned to Adam, standing right next to her and gave him the fruit to eat also, and he did not refuse, he ate too. Imagine -- Adam is listening to the conversation Eve is having with the Representative of Satan and not saying a word, Eve says, "Here my husband, eat", and he does. Maybe it was more like this, "Here husband, worship this way", and he did. Later Adam blames YHWH for his trouble, he says it was the woman’s fault, you know, “That woman you gave me ...”, he says. He blames His Creator, YHWH. If only He, God, had not given him the woman – poor Adam, certainly the victim, poor Adam with a poor excuse. Adam let the woman wear the pants, he was the first hen–pecked husband. Make no mistake all of us men are as guilty as Adam -- and all women as guilty as Eve. They may have been the first but they demonstrated a weakness in their nature, a nature we all have in the flesh.
Understand Genesis 6 is to believe what our God, the God of Israel, and now our Savior is saying and has said to us. Believe Him, Believe His words, they are true, but for some reason (you be the judge), there are those teachers of renown teaching this false doctrine of “spirits” (1Tim 4:1) having sex with human wives, giving birth to giants – how absurd! Read your bible, see the truth, believe, and if you want to speculate don’t try to twist the Scriptures to fit your own fairy tale speculations. When someone gives you a verse that smashes your speculation (your mind idol?) accept it. Remember, it is not about winning or losing arguments, it is about having faith in the Word to deliver the answer and with the help of the Holy Spirit of our Heavenly Father and our Savior we will be shown the way and the truth.
(Rom 3:3-4) For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That you might be justified in your sayings, and might overcome when you are judged. NRKJV
Opinions and speculations can be fun, even lending to keeping interest up in the study of the Word, but we cannot forget, speculation is speculation and your opinion is your opinion but the Word of God is the deciding factor. You should be adjusting your opinions and your speculations to the Word, not the other way around, as we seem to see modern teachers doing today. They follow the methods of Satan, first they tell you some truths then get you to doubt what you think or have heard or read in the Word, then they give you an opinion that is more pleasing to you and your wants and desires and lusts, things to satisfy your flesh, and suddenly you are hooked into thinking "outside of the Book" -- this is Satan's method of self-improvement and there are many that go this way just like Adam and Eve.
Don’t be afraid to accept Scripture for what it says and don’t be quick to speculate. Remember, your opinion is your opinion and as with most opinions coming from biblically illiterate people concerning things they know nothing about they are not worth much -- wonder, think, even think out loud, but wait on the Word for the answer. Do not be quick to grab hold of an idea just because some one you think is more important than you says it must be so. This misdirection gets a lot of sincere people in trouble, they grab hold of something that tweaks their imagination and won’t let it go, even if Scripture says they are wrong, they join in with others in trying to use the Scriptures to prove their fancy idea.
False thinking is to assume everything is possible and by this ultimate answer the Word of the Living God is made unreliable -- because, among men, everything is not possible, only our Creator has that option. All things are only possible with our God. We are creatures of the flesh, creatures of limitations, bound to certain physical principles that restrain us in spite of what we may dream or wish for.
We are limited we are but dust and are perishing by the thousands every day. It is only by the option of our Creator that we are offered Life beyond the grave, beyond the return to dust. Flesh and blood cannot "inherit" the Kingdom in our present condition and this is our ultimate limitation -- death -- these bodies of flesh die.
We should not be in fear of those that can destroy the flesh, as that is going to happen anyway, with or without the aide of other men, but we should fear the one that has the power to destroy both, the flesh as well as the spirit. Our only hope of achieving the impossible is by and through YaHshua, through whom we will receive new Spirit bodies fit for the Kingdom to come. (1 Jn 3:2, Php 3:21, 1 Cor 15:42-44)
The actual verse in context -- (Gen 6:4) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. KJV
Compare the two examples, the first as the magazine printed it and the actual verse as your Bible has it. See what they did? By interjecting “Nephilim” they are planting the idea these “mighty men”, or "Giants" (Nephilim) are the product of the angel/human union. They drop the very beginning of this verse to make it fit their idea, or what they imagine or want this verse to say. This is a flagrant exhibition of twisting and using Scripture improperly to teach a lie. How else can it be said? Is the author of this article in MidNight Call magazine a sincere believer that has merely made a simple mistake? How is that possible when the handling and the adding to the Scripture is so open and deliberate. An honest mistake is when you misinterpret a saying or verse, but to add to it, to make it say something it does not, to handle the Scripture in such a way as to support your one fantasy is a deliberate raping of the Word. It is one thing to make a suggestion, or to present a speculation but to then say these speculations are true and fact is deliberate and those doing this, even though they have tons of truth are of the one YaHshua said called the father of liars. I am not making this judgment, and even is if I am, it is by His Words as the measuring stick, so it is not I that judge but it is our Savior, for He Himself said angels do not marry. These false teachers, drunk on their own words, then say that when YaHshua said this he was talking about angels in Heaven, not on earth. When I heard this excuse my head was spinning -- they refuse to hear what our Savior says, and then proceed to put words in our Savior's mouth. How incredible is this, deny YaHshua's own words to support a fantasy floating around in the minds of those silly people easily influenced by the great deceiver -- but these are supposed to be smart Christian teachers, incredible. Deceived, themselves, and deceiving, mixing truth with lies which is a tactic the Devil has used from the beginning.
I have receive emails damning me for calling out people admired by the Evangelical Christians -- how dare I call men recognized as genius liars and deceivers. The word is the judge, not me, I did not add to the word, they did, I did not call YaHshua a lair or mistaken is what He was telling us, they did -- those genius of Christian teachings. He will judge them as He will judge me and I have not fear as I stand on His side not theirs.
I will not quote the whole article, but it is clear from the article this is what they teach. Look close at the verse, look at what it really says and is saying -- In the original it does not say the “mighty men” were the “Nephilim” but it does say when the Nephilim were on the earth, in those days, these “mighty men” were stepping out of bounds. Look again, these were “mighty men of old, men of renown”, not Nephilim, but men that lived a long time, sons of Adam and Eve (of old) living long lives, famous men (men of renown), not angels, not half breeds of angel/man, but MEN -- and when was all this happening? When there were "Nephilim" (giants) on the earth. No where does it ever say these Nephilim (giants) were their children, no where!
Also, with the original writing, it does not say the Nephilim are men. There were giants in those days? Giant what? Dinosaurs? In the Book of Numbers, as mentioned before, this term, Nephilim, is used referring to a family of 'giants' or human Nephilim and from this you could say it is possible the Nephilim of Genesis 6, is also referring to men, but still, it could be making reference to giant animals as well. One thing is sure, the Nephilim in both accounts never suggests these are half breed humans and angels. In the Book of Numbers they are consistently called “men”.
Are you the product of an angel? Are you the child of an Angel? No, you are not, you are a product of your parents in the flesh, but there is something that explains it all, that explains what happened or was happening in the days of Noah. Humans began to call on the Name of YaHWeH, and to be called the "sons of God" but something happened, these "sons" began to mix with heathens and pagan elements brought to them by their marriages to women from those outside of the truth faith, outside of those worshiping the true God and they lost their place as "sons" of YaH - YaHWeH, even though their became the heroes of old, they were heroes or mighty only among men. We see this same thing happening and recorded in the New Covenant, a restarting, if you will, of events similar to those of the pre-flood world, but let's the Word of God Speak ---
This is my third try at explaining this business about spirit beings, we call angels, marrying human women, having sex with them and producing giant offspring called the Nephilim, while ignoring the plain words and especially the words of our Savior. I am running out of arguments and encouragements for you to receive and study the truth concerning this matter. If you can think of something to add to this understanding please write and let me know. Reread the verse I just quoted closely and ask yourself -- Who has the power? He gave this power to become sons of God to whom? Certainly not to angels marrying humans? What seems to be one of the requirements to becoming a son or daughter of God? Is it making sense now? Do angels have the ability to procreate? The answers seem obvious don't they, when you stay within the realms of the written words, His words to us, right?
If you are still stuck go back to Genesis 6:5 and see the context of the verses leading up to why YHWH destroyed man by a great flood. Then try to find where it says the world of then was destroyed because of the angels, you will not. The subject and the total context is about men and what they were doing. It is all about mankind and their wickedness, not the angels. My understanding is the rebellious angels that followed Satan had revolted before the creation of men.
