The Sons of God

Find themselves falling in love with the Daughters of Men

Now these men that were causing moral corruption and wickedness in the world at this time, were the descendants that had came from the family lineage of Cain. Now keep in mind, that Cain was banished from the land of his parents, and from this point forward was found to be marked by God. Remember that this "mark" was placed on Cain's head by God - because he'd murdered his brother Abel

Bible Study Article Covers :  Genesis 6:1-3

In the last article we'd explored the recorded account that dealt with the prophet Enoch. I'd started exploring his record, by first making it clear that the prophet that was known as Enoch, wasn't the son that was born unto Cain. Remember that Cain son was recorded earlier from within the Sacred Record: "And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son – Enoch." -- Genesis 4:17-18

For I wanted to make clear, the prophet that was known as Enoch, was born from within Seth's family linage, instead of Cain's. I'd also pointed out that the prophet that was known as Enoch, wasn't the same as the person that was named Enosh. And although they both shared Seth's family linage, Enosh was born much earlier, than the prophet that was known as Enoch. 

Be that as it may, we also took a look at why Enoch might have named his son Methuselah... for the name signifies: when he is dead, it shall be sent.

Now I'd shared with you at the time, the viewpoint that dealt with God perhaps sharing with Enoch, how He was going to destroy the earth.

How God was going to do this, because of the severe wickedness that mankind had fallen into.

And this is where we now find ourselves, for we've now reached the point from within the Sacred Record that reveals how mankind might have gotten to a point of no return.

And how the "house of Seth" had been tempted by the world, allowing itself to be lured down the wrong path.

And needless to say, the longer mankind had stayed on their current path of wickedness, the further mankind had fallen away from the Lord.

Now the Sacred Record reveals that all of this began to happen, after the human race had experienced some type of great population explosion: "When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born unto them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them that they chose, then the Lord said, My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.'" -- Genesis 6:1-3

Broken Commandments

For the Sacred Record seems to indicate that humanity, had finally broken every command that the Lord had placed before them during this time. As they completely turned away from the ways of the Lord. Also keep in mind, that these commandments didn't have anything to do with the "Ten Commandments" or the "Mosaic Law" being that the Israelites hadn't went through the "Great Exodus" period yet.

So one could easily wonder, what commandments did they break, if the "Ten Commandments" weren't in play at this time? Understand that I personally believe that these commandments, dealt with some type of Magna Charta that was still being enforced, from the time that Adam and Eve had been banished from the Garden of Eden.

I'm making this claim, based off the fact, we could easily see that Cain and Abel were still following some type of commandments, or Magna Charta that had been laid out by the Lord, when it came to their fellow shipping and offerings. Know that it was these types of commandments that Cain had broken, and in turn, caused God to rebuke him for not being in obedience, when it came to what type of offering he should had offered.

The Daughters of Men


The Sons of God

Nevertheless, as we move forward, we start to see how the human race had started to cause moral corruption and wickedness from throughout the world. A part of the human race that were known to be the descendants that had came from the family lineage of Cain. Now keep in mind, Cain had been banished from the land of his parents, and it would be from that point forward, he would be found to be marked by the hand of God. Remember that this "mark" was placed on Cain's forehead by God. For the Lord put this mark on his forehead, after Cain had murdered his brother Abel.

And after this had happen, we find Cain settling in his new area. And it would be in this place he would start his own family. And it's believed, that eventually, this is where these corrupt and wicked men would eventually come from. Now the daughters of these men, are simply referred to in the Sacred Record as the daughters of men. Know that they were given a title of such, because it's likely that they were morally corrupt and wicked, just like their fathers were.

Nevertheless, when it comes to the sons of God, know that it's presumed that these men had came from the family lineage of Seth. Remember that Seth was the son that was born unto Adam and Eve, a few years after his brothers Cain and Abel. Remember that Abel had been killed by Cain. Be that as it may, the Sacred Record states that after Seth was born, he too, would eventually start his own family. And it would be during this time, he had a son named Enosh.

Now after this had happened, the Scriptures points out that men had begun to call on the name of the Lord. Also know that when it comes to the sons of God know that these men weren't morally corrupt or wicked, like Cain's descendants were, for they were in constant fellowship with the Lord, and they'd tried to do right. They really did try to do things in a way that would please the Almighty.

The Lust of the Flesh

Now it was these sons of God who had seen that the daughters of men were very fair and beautiful. And because of this, they decided to marry and have children with them. Needless to say, this would turn out to be a huge mistake that the sons of God would do. Know that it was wrong for them to marry and mix with people, who did not hold the same beliefs as they did, or to marry people, who had no fear of God. And by marrying these daughters of men, they allowed moral corruption and wickedness to enter into their homes and lives.

And because of this, eventually these sons of God would find themselves practicing, and adopting the same morally corrupt and wicked behaviors; the longer they'd stayed with their wives, the more they became just like them. Always remember, it's hard for people to recognize the traps and snares that Satan have set, and how those traps and snares could easily lead you into wickedness and corruption. Make no mistake, the longer you are exposed to wickedness, the more it will eventually influence you, while leading you away from the Lord.

Now Here Comes the Experts

However, I would like to take this time to point out, there are some Bible scholars and experts that believe that these sons of God were indeed fallen angels? They also believe that these fallen angels had taken and married these mortal women, who were known as the daughters of men and they took them as wives, and had children with them.

But keep in mind that this totally goes against, with what Jesus had said, when it came to angels: "At the resurrection, people will neither marry or be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven." -- Matthew 22:30

Also, this goes against with what God had did during the creation process. Understand that God had everything He created, to be able to reproduce after its own kind. It's really, simple commonsense, to know that humans and angels, are two very different kinds of creatures, being that an angel's makeup is celestial, and the makeup of humans, is more in line with the natural world. It would be impossible for the two species to be able to marry, let alone reproduce. It just doesn't make sense.

A Time-line For Judgment Is Set

"And the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." -- Genesis 6:3

Now it's at this moment that the Lord had announced that man is flesh (corrupt, sensual and carnal minded) and that His Spirit will not always strive with man, for his days will be 120 years. Now let's look at something else real quick. For if one were to take the time that this particular Scripture is pointing to, and was to place it, from the time that the flood actually happened, you will only count about 100 years.

But it's also believed, this Scripture was actually placed out of order, so that the genealogy of this Sacred Account, could be completed and kept in order. This is why, when you go to the eleventh verse in that same chapter, which would be about twenty years later from this Sacred Record, you'll find the same Sacred Account (presented with more detail on what God meant by man being flesh) being mentioned again from within its correct spot:

"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth." -- Genesis 6:11,12

Amazing what a little extra leg-work could do for your biblical studies.

In the next article, we'll move forward a bit more. Now, although from within this article, we'd mentioned the 120 year sentence that had been place against mankind, by the Almighty God. In the next article, we'll take a closer look at the "wicked men" that the Sacred Record described as being "wicked giants" from within the earth.

May God blessings be upon you, and thank you for your support
