---We know from Matthew that angels do not marry or are given to marriage
---

You forgot a few words..

For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God IN HEAVEN

All this verse proves is that angels that reside in heaven do not marry or are given in marriage.
---CraigA on 2/24/11




1) Why does an angel need "heavenly permission" to take *human* form when they can deceive just as well in the form of a serpent?

2) How would the sons of Seth and daughters of Cain produce a race of giants?

3) Notice how the books of the Bible that give details partaining to these events have been removed

4) The world is becoming more and more fascinated with ideas of old 'gods' and exterrestrial life.

Jesus even said at his return things would be as they were in the days of Noah. Those in the fourth kingdom will "mingle themselves with the seed of men" (Dan 2:43)
---CraigA on 2/24/11


And as far as GOOD angels only being the "sons of God", were they not all GOOD to begin with before their rebellion?

If it happened once, who is to say it hasnt happened again... and again... and again?

Not everyone believes the war in heaven is over (Rev 12). A war has many battles.
---CraigA on 2/24/11


Larry, The "sons of God" are exclusively angels (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7), saw and took wives of the human race. This produced an un-natural union which violated the God-ordained order of human marriage and procreation (Gen. 2:24) Some argue that the sons of God were sons of Seth, who cohabited with the daughters of Cain, but the passage puts strong emphasis on the angelic vs human contrast. The N.T. places the account in sequence with other Genesis events and identifies it as involving fallen angels who indwell men (2 Peter 2:4,5 Jude 6). Matthew 22:30 does not necessarily negate the possibility that angels are capable of procreation, but just that they do not marry. To procreate physically, they had to posses human, male bodies.
---Mark_V. on 2/24/11


We know from Matthew that angels do not marry or are given to marriage, though scripture also says evil angels abandoned their own nature and it is thought they could have taken on human form to procreate.
Against that view is scripture only referring to good angels as "sons of God" thus rendering the theory moot. Add the lack of human manifestations of angels without heavenly approval.

The theory of Seth's descendants comes from Genesis 5 where Seth's descendants are described as Godly.

Novie, I believe that you meant to post "sons of God", rather than "sons of gods".

Eloy, you have no clear evidence that these, "sons of God" were sons of Seth. Nor do you have any clear evidence that they were not angels. So really, you have no prove other then your own word. "sons of God" are also mentioned in Scripture to be the "angelic host" but no passage says, the sons of Seth.
And if you read Jude 6, those angels did not keep their proper domain before Sodom and Gomorrah, and are mentioned to be reserved in chains. Then who are this angels and why are they the only ones in chains?
---Mark_V. on 2/22/11


craig, Yes, it changes the whole point, for I have posted the truth from Genesis 6:4, namely, that there were zero angels yoking with women, but instead "the SONS of God had gone to the daughters of men and had born to them, the same were the mightiest of the world and MEN well-known." You see, whenever people receive unholy scriptures like the unholy septuagint and receive uninspired writings for the truth, they will become deluded and foolishly believe in lie.
---Eloy on 2/21/11


Does it change the point, Eloy?

It doesnt say either of the things you believe in scripture.

You think theres a big secret society of men that God isnt telling us about that were around before Adam? Men NOT created in Gods likeness?

Theres nothing in scripture saying so. If you have it, then please post it.
---CraigA on 2/20/11


Craig, did you not read the word "like" Cain in my reply? Or do you just fabricate what you think is written, instead of accepting what is actually written?

Something else to think about...

Why isnt satan bound in chains with the other angels mentioned in 2Peter and Jude?
---CraigA on 2/18/11


Eloy, nowhere in verse 1 does it say these daughters were from Cains line only. It says "men" which leads us to believe they were the daughters of all men.

The Hebrew word used in verse 1 was "adam".

The same word used in verse 7 when God said he would destroy "man". He didnt just destroy the line of Cain in the flood.
---CraigA on 2/18/11


"sons of God" were men from God, like Cain was. lit.Hb: "There were tyrants in the world in those days: for after that the sons of God had gone to the daughters of men and had born to them, the same were the mightiest of the world and men well-known. When Yhwh saw that the wickedness of man was increased upon the earth, and all the imagination and thoughts of his heart was only evil every day, Yhwh regretted that he had made man upon the earth, and sorrowed in his heart, and said, I will destroy mankind which I have made, from off the face of the earth: from man to beast, the crawl and fowl of the air, for I am regretting that I have made them." Gn.6:4-7.
---Eloy on 2/18/11


Legends, as I said before, I really like the way you look at Scripture, and you do have great questions. The problem with many is they look at Scripture from the eyes of man. And since he is sinful, he has many bias's like pride, and self, so he is always looking at God as to what is there for him. What can he get from God.
When a person looks at Scripture from God's perspective, it is all about God and what He demands of man. A study into the Sovereignty of God will help any student of the Word to look at Scripture from the eyes of God and not from man.
It has to be "God centered" not "man centered."

I formerly thought that the astromologic(if that's a word) stars and even all the created things in the solar system were the "sons" mentioned in Job38:7.
Now I simply understand that particular reference as God telling Job to FOLLOW the GUIDANCE of God in praising not complaining. Sons of God were foreordained to praise from the creation's "foundation"(founding wisdom of God)
The idea of GUIDANCE AND FOLLOWING is confirmed a few verses later. Job38:32 "Can you GUIDE Arcturus with his SONS".
Arcturus is the constellation of the foraging bear and his cubs FOLLOWING.
God's Message: Sons, like bear cubs should follow the GUIDANCE of the One Who made them. SHUT UP YOUR MOANING and quit trying to Guide God.

Do we even know for sure that, in Job's references, they were even what we would consider living?

---Legends on 2/16/11


Legend, concerning Job 1:6, Job 2:1 the answer to that is, that they were also angelic beings. God was holding council with His heavenly court. Neither Job nor his friends ever knew about this. The angelic host are also mentioned in Pss. 29:1, 89:6,7, which speak of "sons of God" and in Dan. 3:25 where it is made clear in (v, 28) that the fourth person was an angel.
Concerning Gen. 6:1, the question still remains, many say they are the sons of Seth, but I believe myself they were also angelic host, which later are mentioned in Jude 6 and mentioned in 2 Peter 2:4. Here Peter begins with the angels already in chains awaiting judgment, and then goes to Noah then the flood then Sodom and Gomorrah in sequence.

Legends, what I loved about what you said is, you looked at Scripture from God's eyes. From His perspective, not from man's. It gives a clearer picture of Holy Scripture. Concerning Hebrew 1:5 no angel was given the name, "Begotten Son"? Only One Son is begotten of God. The thought is clearly that Christ is the Begotten of God in the sense that no other is. This is illustrated in the use of the same word in regard to Isaac (Heb. 11:17), who was not literally the only begotten of Abraham but was the only begotten of Abraham in the sense that he was the promised seed. "The only Begotten" is another title (monogenes) related to the son-ship of Christ as introduced in the Old T., and found five times in the New T.

Thanks again brother...
btw... still can't see angels being called sons "AT ANY TIME" period.
Would love your analysis of Hebrews Chapter1:5...

...in relation to Job38:7, Job1:6 and Job2:1.
Too much speculation over Genesis6:1(Giants or sons of Seth argument has given me a headache)
Love ya!
---Legends on 2/14/11


Legends, I really loved what you said about God and how you put things together. Since God is outside of time, He did make the plan. And the whole plan was before Him as present. All the events in life from beginning to end are all before Him. But to us they are just unfolding, from the beginning of Genesis to Revelation. He saw Christ crucified, and who and how many were saved. But I believe in the unfolding of His plan to us who are in time, in the sequence that He wrote Scripture, Craig is correct, those "the morning stars..sons of God" were angelic realm, God's ministering spirits. He says in v. 12 "Have you commanded the morning since your days begin" His speaking as if outside of our days or time.
---Mark_V. on 2/14/11


It also seems easy to understand that Jesus wasn't physically hanging on a cross at the foundation of the world but God "calls those things that BE NOT as though they were."
This is why Job should have been singing/shouting instead of moaning/groaning. God already had every issue solved that Job would ever encounter before he was created.
The LORD saw Jesus slain from the foundation just as He saw HUMAN sons singing and shouting from the foundation. That included Job. The answer to God's question, "Where were you?" should have been, "I WAS THERE IN YOUR PLAN" singing and shouting just like the Creators blue print demanded.
Craig, you were there too! PTL!

Seemed pretty easy to understand to me. There werent any "humans" around when God laid the foundation of the earth. These "sons" were singing and shouting for joy as God was making the earth.
---CraigA on 2/7/11


Craig,
Job38 still doesn't say anything about angels as being synonymous with the shouting sons or singing stars. That interpretation needs more evidence.
Nevertheless, your evidence about no humans created when foundations were laid brings a point needing explanation.
Craig, try this. God was speaking to Job in his very depressed state. There seemed to be no way out of Job's dilemna. As with Job, so it is today. PRAISE GOD for His FINISHED WORK. PRAISE was FOREORDAINED as the God-given way out of the adversity SONS encounter, instead of moaning about their current circumstances.
God was telling Job that before his problems happened, God saw HUMAN SONS singing and shouting for joy. Simularly, Jesus was slain from world's foundation.
---Legends on 2/7/11


---No scripture says angels nor any other created beings, other than humans are sons. You said it. The Bible NEVER says it.---Legends on 2/2/11

Wrong.

Job 38:4-7 (God speaking to Job)

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
?

No men were around when God laid the foundation of the earth. These "sons" were something other than men.
---CraigA on 2/2/11


JackB,
1Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who... HAS BEGOTTON US again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

1John 5:1
WHOEVER believes that Jesus is the Christ is BORN of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot(God) also loves "him who is BEGOTTEN of Him(Us that are BORN OF GOD).
God's Sowing and Reaping Law states: Sow a seed then reap a harvest.
God sowed(planted) the seed of His Only Begotton. The Seed germinated, sprung up as a harvest of begotton SONS. Humans not angels! It's not just Jesus anymore. That's why He came.
No scripture says angels nor any other created beings, other than humans are sons. You said it. The Bible NEVER says it.

Interesting question.....

No connection with the One Son of God (Jesus)

Is it possible that the term son in Hebrew is wider than the word in English, and can mean both son (English meaning) and also some form of 'creation' of God
---Peter on 2/1/11


Why would you say angels interesting. I believe they in fact were angels, fallen ones these same angels i believe taught mankind to worship false gods perhaps plocaiming themselves to be gods.The only other place this phrase Sons of God is mentioned when satan comes b4 the throne of God concerning Job. The sons of God come with him. Obviously man cannot accend to the throne so these must be the heavenly host that rebeled with lucifer.

The righteous were marrying the unrighteous.
Same as Solomon and all through Judges.
We, as Christians, are also not to do this.
Deut 7:1-4
Jos 23:11-13
Jud 3:5-6
Judges 17:6 In those days [there was] no king in Israel, [but] every man did [that which was] right in his own eyes.
Neh 13:23-27
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way, and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
It is my opinion that God was preserving the seed unto which Christ would be born.
---micha9344 on 9/1/10


There is another "begotten son" in Scripture and his name is Isaac. Hebrews 11:17-18, "By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only "begotten son" of whom it was said, in Isaac your seed shall be called"
As for Jesus Christ, the thought is clearly that Christ is the only begotten of God in the sense that no other is the Promise Seed of God. This is illustrated in the use of the same word in regard to Isaac, who was not literally the only begotten of Abraham but was the only begotten of Abraham in the sense that he was the promised seed.

"For to which of the angels did He(God) EVER say, "Thou art my son...?" (see Hebrews 1:5)

you forgot some...

"...this day I have begotten thee?"

None of the angels are begotten sons. Christ is the only begotten son.

Anyone in scripture created directly BY God and not thru one of his creations is a SON. The angels (including Lucifer) are sons, Adam is a son.

Matthew 22:30
For in the resurrection they (men) neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Men marry in THIS world. In the resurrection we will not. We will be like the angels of heaven. We will have no desire to do so.

Jude 1:6,7
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. (2 Peter 2:4 also)

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Its possible these "sons of God" who rebelled against the Lord took an interest in human women (something new). Maybe they were inticed by witnessing the pleasure men experience in sexual activity with women.

There are just too many things that could be explained throughout history by the union of fallen angels and humans.

The "Titans" of greek mythology were the union of the "gods" and human women. UFO and alien sightings, giants in the Bible, the building of the great pyramids in Egypt... How many wonders are there that simply have no explanation?

Im not saying it IS true, but its certainly a possibility. Go watch Chuck Misslers videos on the Nephalim and decide for yourself.
---JackB on 8/31/10


According to Jesus angels don't have partners (Mark 12:25). I don't think they think as humans (concerning the opposite sex)...

I think "sons of God" were people who followed God, just as the Bible uses the term later (Rom.8:15-17,Gal.4:6-7).

What happened before the flood, was probably what happened later (Num.25, Judges2): followers of God fell in love with nonbelievers, and lost faith. Even Solomo did" (1.Kings11:1-8)

God warned the Israelites against marrying pagans,not because He didn't love them,but because this could turn their hearts AWAY from Him/salvation (2Cor.6:14).

Thats probably why the preflood planet got so evil, and only EIGHT people entered the ark....

I believe that the Sons of God were Angels as is mentioned in The Book of Job. The fallen ones came down to earth and in some way caused women to birth children who in turn were called Nephilim. Jesus says that Angels of God do not procreate but the fallen ones are not followers of God but of Satan our accuser, in accusing us his sin would be lessened. These Angels were not killed by the Flood and returned to Earth to start again. Satans seed would occupy the land of Caanan before Abrahams and strive with the seed of Adam or Seth if you will. Remember Goliath and Og, whose bed was 14Ft by 6FT, these were Giants not rulers. David killed a Giant not a ruler.

"Sons" is derived from hebrew word 'ben' which is Strongs # H1121. This word refers to several things including angels. In context, the fallen angels (sons) mated with females of the earth in direct opposition to YHUH will (matt 22:29-30)

---Meira on 2/12/09


The Sons of God are identified by some as the sons of Seth. Others, including early Jewish writers take them to mean angels. Also, sons of God could be a reference to Lamech, who were the leaders of the day and were very wicked and violent. Please note this scripture>>>"My Spirit shall not always strive with man" [Genesis 6:3]. [1] It is a reference to the Holy Spirit striving in the sense of judging or excuting judgment on mankind or [2] A reference to the fact that the human spirit that God placed in human beings would not always abide. That is mankind was doomed to death. Man was given 120 years after this warning before the judgment of the flood actually came. [may not had been angels]. Could be a demon possession interpretation.

When God commanded Adam and Eve to go out and multiply, I can only speculate that they did so without delay and in their righteous status bore the children of righteousness the bible calls the "Sons of God". After Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they still continue to bear children Cain, Abel and everyone thereafter the bible calls the "Sons and Daughters of Men". Since both races of men had the capacity to pro-create, subsequent intermarriages bore them "men of renown" honored by the rest of mankind as heroes, super-heroes and later on as gods, the birth of pagan religion worthy of the flood. Angels can not co-habit with human, they are sexless and do not have the capability to pro-create.
---Eleazar_H._Allen on 2/11/09


Steven Rem7000,

I have to agree with you on your interpretation. I should have never stated that they were descendents of Seth.
Like Seth, as oppossed to Cain, I believe they were righteous men, who drawn away from God by their pagan wives.

Thanks for the correction.

Lord bless you,

The sons of God refer to the fallen angels who mated with human females who in return had offspring called the nephilim.This is where Goliath and his brothers came from.You need to study about the 1/3rd of the heavenly beings who left with satan.Oh yea by the way they can take possession of humans and animals.

The sons of God were the descendents of Seth, not Cain. (Cain was of the wicked one 1 John 3:12) They were religious men. They took wives who were not Godly. Their wives led them off into error. Their children became wicked.

Note: We as Christians today are the sons of God - John 1:12, Phil 2:15, 1 John 3:1 & 2.

Hope that helps.

This was a popular mythological story about the race of giants who married with humans. It serves to anecdotally show the increased evilness of man which resulted in the flood. It has nothing to do with races.It much later became identified with Sons of man and the decendents of Seth and Cain. Yawhist strain.

The widest view is that they are the godly line of Seth, Other views are that they are "angels". The the daughters of Men could possibly refer to sinful women.

, the "nephilim" are just proud, boastful men of the time who did as they pleased, without caring about God. they may have seemed great to others, but they were just mere men.

why do we not ask ourselves why the Lord's preferred place of isolation was the mountains and the garden of gethsemane and why he used a wooden cross? see Deutronomy 12:1-3.liz8687

The sons of God are the decendants of Seth. The daughters of men are the decendants of Cain, which takes it all back to the Garden. The Bible is very much about lineage, who we came from and where we are going. Jesus said angels neither marry nor or given in marriage. Plus, for angels to take on human bodies would require "creation". God (the creator) ended all creation on the 6th day.

neither. 'sons of God' refers to men, not angels. Else it would read 'angels of God' rather then 'sons of God'. It means we were made by God, like as the 'Eden of God' or 'animals of God', etc. And 'of God' in the passage does not mean 'godly' sons, for it continues reading about their wickedness. The Septuagint is also in error for the mistranslating of 'Giants' as abnormally tall people or monsters, for in vs 4 it reads: "...the same were the mightiest of the world and men well-known."

In theology class the lecturer supported the theory of the lineage of Seth. But from a prophetic view of scripture it is not, and it explains why so many strange things happen to Godly people- it's the influence of what Paul calls the "powers in the air- spirtual wickedness in the high places." see deutronomy12:1-3 about the influence idol worship at the mountains, the hills and the trees.

I believe they refer to godly men marrying ungodly women, or heathens.

The rest of the Bible seems to call God's people sons of God so I have no problem with them being the Godly people.We are all sons of God through faith in Jesus.I don't know of any place were angels are referred to as sons of God.
