Who are the sons of God in Genesis 6:1-2?
(See a complete study on the sons of God under Questions Answered)
(1) The sons of God are the men and women who are chosen by God to be his sons/daughters through God’s Effective Grace and evidenced by their Obedient Faith which is the active obedience to the Ten Commandments. Their inheritance is to be restored like their Father Adam, the son of YHWH.
They are the Chosen Ekklyssia, the true Israel and the adopted remnant. They will have the image and likeness of God restored in them..
Other liguistic possible or faulty meanings:
(1) Some people say that the sons of God are the hosts of heaven, the angels, or at least some of them.
(2) Some people say that all creatures, men, angels, animals, plants, rocks, stars, molecules and atoms, are the sons of God by virtue of having God as their Creator.
(3) The term Sons of God in Hebrew can mean also “rulers” and “princes” of the human kind, i.e. powerful men.
(4) In pagan cultures it could mean men who claim to be gods, such as Nimrod (Ninos) and Zoroaster which means they were rulers and declared themselves gods.
HOW DID THE FAULTY INTERPRETATION OF GENESIS 6:1,2 START?
(1) Some mystic Jews at the time of Ezra wrote the Book of Enoch and claimed that it was written by Enoch the son of Cain before Noah’s global flood. How did this book survive the global flood? I guess, your guess is mine.
The Book of Enoch says: “It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days and daughters were born to them attractive and beautiful and when the angels, the sons of heaven beheld them, they became enamored of them (fell in love) and they said to each other, come, let us select ourselves wives from the prodigy of men and let us beget children” (7:1).
(2) Kabbalism (Cabalism) promoted this teaching. Kabbalism is a mixture of Hebrew Scriptures teaching mixed with spiritism (demonic principles).
(3) Many Bible teachers say that the giants who were called “Annakim” or “ Nephilim” or “Amalakites” are not fully humans, but are the product of marriage with the fallen angels. This is the same mythological teaching of the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman gods. For example, Greek and Roman mythology teach that Zeus (Jupiter) had sexual intercourse with every woman he saw, whether human or a goddess. It says that one day Zeus took on Amphitryon physical form and had passionate sex with Alcmene his wife. Alcmene became pregnant with Heracles (Hercules) who was a mighty giant, half god and half man.
This is exactly the same false mythology taught in the Book of Enoch who was the son of the pagan Cain, although the writer might have been another mystic Jew at the time of Ezra.
(4) The Septuaginta LXX which is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures (around 200 B.C.) alluded that the Nephilim in Genesis 6 were the Giants, as if they were some supernatural product from the fallen angels and women. It appears that these rabbis who made the translation believed in the myth taught in the Book of Enoch which was circulating at the time.
(5) Most Jews and Christians do not read or study the Bible with full faith in its absolute authority. They rely on the teachings and interpretations of their rabbis, friends, pastors, bishops and teachers.
There are several mythological concepts that are taught and accepted by the common people who love God, because they are open to many teachings, especially from men and women who claim falsely that they are anointed by God or that they are servants of God, although they are simply APPOINTED employees as pastors or bishops.
(6) Such myth is taught in many Christian seminaries and Jewish Yeshiva. The pastors and the rabbis believe in such myth and propagate it with personal conviction.
(7) Some false teachers claim that the term Sons of God refers specifically to demons who are the fallen angels, (Job 1:6). They claim that since Satan came among the sons of God, then they cannot be angels because Satan was rejected from his habitation among the angels. This is nothing but a false interpolation.
✧ “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the Great Day” (Jude 6).
The Bible teaches that angels cannot engender children from sexual relationships with women.
 Angels are spirits, they are not of flesh and blood. "Who makes his angels spirits" (Psalm 104:4).
 Angels can appear as if they have flesh and can move objects. But, they are NOT incarnate, i.e., they do not have a real human flesh with human DNA (23 pairs of chromosomes).
 Angels are given the task to serve and minister the Chosen men and women the Ekklyssia which is the true Israel and the heirs of redemption (Hebrews 1:14).
 Angels have no DNA (23 pairs of chromosomes). From the old days, in pagan cultures, in Christian pagan cultures, and also Islamic cultures, there had been some folklore stories about sexual relationships with demons which are referred to as incubus and succubus. But such activities are demonic contacts, manifestations, worship, possession, trans, and rituals. There can be no children born of such demonic activities. Hollywood films about Satan having a baby after having sexual relationship with a woman are resounding echo of such demonic contacts with men or women. A good number of Hollywood very successful personality do worship Lucifer openly, not only as the Free Masons do, but with open witchcraft blood altar sacrifices.
The truth is: there can be no pregnancy since angels and demons who are evil angels do not have DNA.
 Angels are not born; they are created. Some false teachers interpret the term “I will put enmity between your seed and her seed” to mean that Satan will give birth to evil angels like him from the women of the earth, hence the Nephilim are the seed of Satan. This is false teaching because Yeshua Jesus stated that angels do not marry. Jesus was not talking about a marriage ceremony, but about having children as humans do in marriage.
✧ “ Do not therefore err, because you know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God? 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" (Mark 12:24-25 and see also Matthew 22:30).
✧ “ (Lucifer) The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on fhe day you were created (Ezekiel 28:13).
Angels are distinct from the sons of God according to Luke. Jesus said: "Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children (sons) of God" (Luke 20:36).
 There are other dimensions which God created. They are alluded to in the Scriptures by words such as: Third Heaven, Other Worlds, and Gates. Humans are limited to four dimensions: space and time. Angels are excluded from the first three space dimensions: x, y and z. Although, God may chain some angels in a spiritual space.
✧ “God has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds" (Hebrews 1:2).
✧ "For by Him (Messiah Christ Jesus) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth" (Colossians 1:16).
“And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth . . . I heard saying: 'Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and every"' (Revelation 5:13).
 It is possible that the Sons of God mentioned in Job 1 were the spirits of the believers which include Adam, Eve, Seth and the faithful people who called the name YHWH and died prior to the time of Job. Their spirits were alive and they appear before God awaiting the fulfillment of their redemption by the blood of Jesus on the cross. Satan’s presence there appears natural as Satan continues to claim them under his authority by virtue of their sin in Paradise. Satan believes that they, the sons of God spirits, are under his authority: "To whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness” (Romans 6:16).
But, God defended them and kept them awaiting their completed redemption by Christ on the cross.
✧ "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them" (Job 1:6).
 The Gospel of Luke mentions "the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God" (Luke 3:38).
Adam was the son of God by virtue of his faith in the Messiah, the Redeemer to come and Not because he was created by God.
God created every creature, but the sons of God are those who are called to the adoption as sons.
 The term sons of God can apply to the spirits of those who died: (A) Those who were awaiting their redemption by Christ on the cross, or (B) Those who were redeemed by Christ and then died. They are awaiting the Second Coming and their resurrection.
✧ “ The morning stars (angels) sang together, and all the sons of God (spirits of the redeemed by faith) shouted for joy”(Job 38:7).
 The Scriptures teach clearly that the sons of God are the believing people who are also called the Ekklyssia and the true Israel.
✧ “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God" (Matthew 5:9). Jesus is not referring to angels or aliens.
✧ “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12).
✧ “For as many as are led by the (Holy) Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14). This verse refers to people and not to demons or evil angels.
[12} God’s effectual calling leads the chosen few to become regenerated and believe in the person and works of the Messiah. Thus, they are called “sons of God.” Evil spirits who are the fallen angels cannot be regenerated, hence they are not called “sons of God.”
✧ “ For as many as are led by the Spirit ofGod, they are the sons ofGod" (Romans 8:14).
✧ “ For you are all the sons (children) of God by faith in Messiah JesusJ” (Galatians 3:26).
✧ “ Even to them (the chosen ekklyssia Qohelet) I will give, in My house and within My walls, a place and a name better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off" (Isaiah 56:5).
 The relationship of the redeemed is a real adoption by God as His own sons.
✧ “ To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Holy Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 4:5-7; Isaiah 56:5; Philippians 2:15).
 Today, nonbelievers could be called children of men and also children of the Devil (Satan), but not sons of God.
✧ “If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He sent me. Why do you not understand me? Even because you cannot hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do (John 8:42 44).
 Today, we are sons of God if we, not only accept the Messiah Jesus sacrificial death in our place, but also obey Him. We are the children of the one whom we obey. (Romans 6:16).
It is not just a matter of feeling, or confession, or assent of faith, but committed faith which is evidenced by total obedience.
✧ “ He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked" (I John 2:6).
To walk means to obey and follow all the Ten Commandments of Yeshua Jesus Christ.
Notice the reference: “to walk just as He walked.” Therefore, we need to reject all the teachings and the interpretations of the Church and follow all the Scripture as Jesus wrote it and obeyed it.
RECOUNTING THE HISTORICAL EVENTS
Since all the references refer to the redeemed people as the “sons of God,” therefore, when we apply this to Genesis 6, we have to use the same meaning.
Thus, the “sons of God” refers to the faithful believers of the children of Seth.
The term “the daughters of men” refers to the daughters of the non-redeemed or non-believing children of Cain who refused to call on the name YHWH the Lord.
Now Cain not only refused to offer a sacrifice of obedience to YHWH, but also he claimed superiority over his brother Abel. This arrogance justified in his own eyes the murder of his brother, Abel.
God gave Adam and Eve another son, Seth.
Seth married one of his sisters and had children of his own. Seth and his children believed in YHWH and in his grace. They offered the blood sacrifices on Yom Kippur and they "began to call on the name of YHWH.” (Genesis 4:25, 26).
After God banished Cain, he settled "in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch” (Genesis 4:16 18).
The believers, children of Seth lived in the country separated from the non-believers, children of Cain who lived in cities.
Some of the men, children of Seth (sons of God), were seduced by the attractive women of Cain (daughters of men). While they knew very well that there is no intermingling of light and darkness or fresh and salty waters.
These men, children of Seth, thought that marrying these beautiful women is a form of “evangelism,” just as almost all churches are doing today. There is very little difference between the world and the church lifestyle today.
It is possible that these pagan women thought sincerely that they will accept YHWH after their marriage. Today, many women show strong faith in Christ, until after they get married, then they confess that their faith and love to God and to their husbands is changed or waned off. They were highly motivated to get married. Once married, there is no more reason to remain faithful. Feminists encourage and reinforce this behavior by saying that a woman should NOT be faithful to anyone, except to herself and to her feelings.
It is possible also that the children of Seth thought that they were immune against spiritual pollution.
Instead of the sons of God influencing the daughters of men, the daughters of men influenced the sons of God. These beautiful women definitely polluted the pure faith of the children of Seth in theology and in practice.
The women of the world, daughters of Cain, can be more attractive physically, more seductive, more domineering, more witty and smarter than the faithful pure daughters of Seth. The competition was and remains unfair.
God reminds us to remain faithful and pure, even if we find ourselves alone, celibate and mocked by others.
✧ “ Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteous ness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people (which means sons of God). therefore 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 you shall be my sons and daughters, faith the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
“You shall neither make marriages with them; your daughter you shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter you shalt take unto your son. For they will turn away your son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of YHWH be kindled against you, and destroy you suddenly” (Deuteronomy 7:3, 4).
✧ The days of Noah were marked by “intermingling” in marriage, in theology, in worship, in tolerance, in acceptance of every sexual practice even unnatural.
✧ “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark (Matthew 24:37, 38). Jesus referred to marriages which recalls Genesis 6:1-2, i.e. tolerance of everyone and every practice.
✧ “They took them wives of all which they chose” (Genesis 6:2). This is also where polygamy began.
✧ “And Lamech (a son of Cain) took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah” (Genesis 4:19). Polygamy started then. Now, Christians and Jews practice polygamy in the form of a chain monogamous prostitution (boy-girl friendships one after another) along with casual sexual encounters (hookups, dating and make-out).
✧ The sanctity of marriage and natural sexual relationships in marriage were destroyed. Everyone did whatever they pleased and felt entitled to it, just as today, Christians and the world have equal rights to any form of sexuality and any type of relationship before and after marriage. These are the Days of Noah repeated and worsened.
EXAMPLES OF MIXED MARRIAGES WITH NON BELIEVERS
✧ Samson, chosen by God, was derailed by the Philistine women.
✧ "Then his father and mother said to him, 'ls there no woman among the daughters of your brethren, or among all my people, that you must go and get a wife from the uncircumcised Philistines?' And Samson said to his father, 'Get her for me, for she pleases me well'" (Judges 14:3).
✧ King Solomon believed that he could marry the daughters from pagan nations and, with his unsurpassed wisdom, convert them. However, those pagan daughters drew away Solomon's heart and caused his demise.
✧ Today, many faithful and committed men of God marry women who claim and act as true Christians, only to discover after the marriage that their wives are neither truly faithful to Christ, nor to them.
It is better to be alone and suffer being alone rather than be with a wrong attractive woman.
WHO ARE THE GIANTS
✧ The Giants were fully humans.
✧ It is a simple law of genetics called "genetic vitality."
✧ The Human Genome Project which was completed by scientists who were paid by the government for many years proved that humans have 3,600,000,000 nucleotide bases. This means that the human genome contains 1,200,000,000 genes. Our entire phenotype expression requires a maximum of 30,000 genes only. This means that the remaining one billion two-hundred million genes are “introns”, i.e., inactive or methylated or epigenes.
✧ Giants have a simple variant of one or more of these intron genes.
✧ The gene of the giant phenotype is recessive, hence, when a giant marries a normal height stature person, then all the offsprings will have normal stature. Also, when a normal stature person marries a midget, then all the offsprings will be midgets in stature.
✧ The genes which cause giant stature are normal within the human genome. They inhibit the Pineal Gland through feedback control which leads to the continued physical growth without calcification of cartilages.
✧ The Nephilim, the Annakim, and the Amalekites were giants and they intermarried within themselves. But, when they intermingled with other nations, the giant phenotype expression receded as it is recessive.
✧ The Greeks had a habit of calling any man who has exceptional physical stature or physical ability as a god. Such mentality is the same that interprets the Giants as gods or demiurges.
✧ When you examine the monumental buildings such as the Pyramids and the Stone Hinges and many others around the world, then it can be easily explained by the possibility that they were built by giants who lived in the land.
(As a caution: Christians who teach that God contributed half the chromosomes to an ovum from Mary and thus Yeshua Jesus was conceived are teaching a purely pagan doctrine. God did NOT contribute and Mary did NOT contribute, but rather God made the flesh body of Yeshua Jesus entirely. Mary was simply the most honored temple carrying God's incarnate body Jesus in her.)
