Let’s review our study on Genesis 6:1-2

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

This is incorrect because  1.  Angels are spiritual beings and cannot have sex with human flesh.  2.  Angels and
Satan do not have the power of creation.  Only God does.  3.  Rebellious angels were not cast out of heaven until
just after Jesus birth.  They weren’t on earth during Genesis.  4.  No where in the Old Testament is demon pos-
session mentioned.

The sons of God are actually the descendants of Seth.  They called on the name of the Lord.  The daughters of
men are from the descendants of Cain.  They did not call on the name of the Lord.

The sons of God “believers” saw that the daughters of men “nonbelievers” were beautiful.  They married
and had sex with them.  They were unequally yoked.  The sons of God lost their faith.  Mans heart became evil.

This greatly disappointed God so he wiped mankind from the face of the earth.  Only Noah and his family found
favor with God.  Noah and his family survived the flood and began to repopulate the earth.

Next week, who are the Nephilim of Genesis 6:4.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
