Let’s sum up our study of Genesis 6:1-2 so far.

Genesis 6:1-2  When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born of them, the
sons of God, saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.

Many Christians believe that the sons of God were rebellious angels that married and had sex with human women.
As a result, their offspring were a giant human race called Nephilim.

This is incorrect for many reasons.

1)  Angels are spiritual beings and cannot have sex with human flesh.

2)  The rebellious angels could not take human form since the angels and Satan (also a spiritual angel) do
not have the power of creation.  They can’t create human flesh.

3)  God did not create the flesh for rebellious angels to possess.  This is evident in the very next verse.
Genesis 6:3  God expresses his displeasure with the actions of Genesis 6:2.  He did not cause it.

4)  The rebellious angels did not possess already living human beings.  Revelation 12 tells us that the
rebellious angels (demons) were not hurled to the earth until just after the birth of Jesus.

5)  No where in the Old Testament is demon possession mentioned.  The rebellious angels were not on the
earth during Genesis.

Next week, who really were the sons of God.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
