Sons of God - Daughters of man
(Taught at Community Bible Chapel by Andy Neckar)

Gen 6:1-4 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, Verse 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. Verse 3-And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Verse 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.

2 Pet 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.

Now- let’s take a close look at Gen 1 verse 4 again.

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.

“In those days”.  In the days of Genesis Chapter 6 and also “after” that. (after Gen 6)

Num 13:28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.

Num 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

Deut 9:2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!

Giants are spoken of three times in Numbers Chapter13, five times in Deuteronomy Chapters 2 & 3, in Joshua Chapters 12,13,15,17, and 18, in 2 Samuel 21 four times and in 1 Chronicles 20, three times.

I say that the giants were NOT the result of the "fallen angels" of God going unto the daughters of man.

These giants became mighty men of renown/reputation/distinction because of their size.  They had no special powers, they were just GIANTS/BIG

Job 1:6; 2:1; and 38:7 speak of angles as sons of God.  THIS is the ONLY place in the WHOLE BIBLE that speaks of sons of God as angles.

John 1:12; Romans 8:14; 8:98; Philippians 2:15; and 1 John 3:1-2 speak  of sons of God as saved believers.

Look here;
Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Sons of God here are “obedient” angles.  You see where Satan came ALSO among them.  He was “not included” in the statement, “sons of God

Is Satan is not included as a son of God then neither are his followers.  If his followers are not include in the statement “sons of God”, then the “sons of God” that came unto the daughters of men WERE NOT FALLEN ANGLES.

REMEMBER…Satan and his angles must have PERMISSION to tempt us and to do ANYTHING that they do.  They MUST obey the command of Jesus, the Word of God.

Fallen angels/devils/demons cannot take on the form of man.  They cannot take on the form of ANYTHING without permission from God.

Matt 8:31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us (give us liberty) to go away into the herd of swine.

Angels were created for HEAVEN and man was created for the EARTH.  Man was created to BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY . ANGLES WEREN’T .

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

Angles have no body and they cannot take on/become a physical body on earth, just as man cannot take on/become a spirit on earth.  Angles and men are limited to creation in knowledge and in power.

Men cannot become angles and angles cannot become men.  The BIBLE/GOD teaches this.

To have a “physical” body the angels would have to CREATE a body for themselves.  WHO is that that ALONE has the power to create?

Do you know where this subject matter comes from?
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.

THE BOOK OF ENOCH-- which contains an elaborated description of the disobedient angels as referred to in Genesis 6:1-4

Do you know where “this” comes from?
Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

  Jude is citing/quoting/referring to the apocryphal/fictional/dubious/doubtful story of Michael and the devil, taken from the “Assumption of Moses”.  Jude quoted both this book and the "Book of Enoch". We don’t know if he approved of these books as a part of “Canon Law” that is “Holy Scripture” or what.  We just don’t know.

  The “sons of God”, the line of Seth.
Gen 4:25-26 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: “then began men to call upon the name of the LORD”.

The “daughters of man” the line of Cain
I Jn 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

  Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Gen 5:1-3 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:

  Do you see that in the biography of Adam, neither Cain not Able are mentioned, ONLY SETH.

  Bur CAIN & ABLE were the FIRST BORN.

Gen 4:1-2 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

  Gen 4:1-2 Cain and Able are born. Gen 4:25-26 Seth is born.

  Luke gives an account of the lineage of Jesus Christ.

He Begins;
Luke 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,

  He Ends;
Luke 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was “the son of God”.

  The “sons of God” were Old Testament Believers.  AMEN.

  NOTE…When a Christian marries a non-Christian, things go haywire. There is no mention that ANY of the offspring of these unholy marriages, (giants) were ever saved.
