Wicked Giants in the Earth

Exploring the Wickedness & Corruption of Humanity

Mankind had become so wicked and corrupt, the thoughts and imaginations of the human race were revealed by the Sacred Record as being a continuous evil. What this simply meant, is that the thoughts of humanity as a whole, were mainly focused on doing evil deeds, not just part of the time, but all.

Bible Study Article Covers :  Genesis 6:4-8

In the last article we began our journey by exploring the recorded accounts, when it came to The Sons of God and The Daughters of Men. And it was during this time, we'd discovered that The Sons of God were the direct descendants of Seth. Remember that Seth was the son that Adam and Eve had, after the horrible event that had taken place between Cain and Abel. However, when it came to The Daughters of Men we'd learned that they were the direct descendants of Cain. Remember that Cain was Seth's older brother, the one who was banned from the land of their parents, after he'd went into a jealous rage and killed his brother Abel.

However, it was at this time, the Sacred Record reveals that The Sons of God would eventually intermarry with The Daughters of Men.

And because of this unwise move, The Sons of God would eventually find themselves ensnared, by the wicked and corrupted ways, when it came to The Daughters of Men.

Also keep in mind that The Daughters of Men, were the daughters of some very powerful men, in which the Sacred Record identifies as Giants in the Earth:

"There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Then the Lord saw that  the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every  intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." - Genesis 6:4,5

Who Were These Giants?

Now keep in mind that we're still in the time period that was in between the banishment of Cain and the Great Flood of Judgment. However, I'd also stated earlier, it was during this time period The Sons of God had intermingled, while eventually marrying the Daughters of Men. And soon after, they commenced to raising families together. 

Now when it comes to the term "giant" know that the Sacred Record is basically using it in reference to the men, who had obtained a position of high stature. A Position that had brought along with it, great power and influence. Also know that these so-called giants, would end up using their positions of strength and influence, to oppress, and tyrannize all others from across the lands they'd ruled.

It was this type of sinful lifestyle, that had infected humanity with corrupted behavior, along with an immoral nature. So-much-so, the Lord had decided to punish humanity, by using the Great Flood of Judgment. Know that humanity had became so wicked and corrupt that their thoughts and imaginations, were revealed by the Sacred Record, as being a continuous evil.

What this simply meant, is that the thoughts of humanity as a whole, were mainly focused on doing evil deeds, all the time. Know that the sinful lifestyle that humanity was adopting, had become so extremely corrupt that their morals, had begun to decay in the worse kind of way, while their souls everyday, became tainted with a vile sense of wickedness.

Did God Regret Making Humanity?

And after God had seen what humanity was becoming, the Sacred Record reveals to us that the Lord had became grieved, for He'd regretted making the human race. Now personally, I find that statement to be very interesting. For you must remember, there had already been a lot of speculation on what God really meant at this time. When it came to regretting, making the human race.

Now I'm not going to get into all the different viewpoints, when it comes to what Bible scholars and teachers have to say about this particular passage. For I personally believe that it's not really necessary to go into. And the reason why I would make such a statement, deals with this part of the passage:

"And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at His heart." Now basically this deals with how a person would feel, when a person is watching a love-one go down a path that would eventually destroy them. And on top of that, to make matters worse that is found doing it willing.

Now if we were to take the bait by delving into these useless debates, when it comes to how God really felt at this time, we could run the chance of veering away from what the main point of the passage was  really meant to reveal. And the main point, I'm referring to, basically deals with humanity, all the time, being outright wicked and corrupted.

God's Announcement to the Human Race

But in spite of all of this, all was not lost for the human race. For we now find the Lord (whose love for mankind can't be measured) had decided not to give up on the human race, but instead He decided to do something about it:  "And the Lord said, 'I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth - men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air - for I am grieved that I have made them.'" -- Genesis 6:7

Notice that the Lord had announced to the human race, how He'll wipe away its filth, while in the process, undo all that humanity had already done from within the world. Also know that the animals would be punished as well, being that they too, were made for the pleasing and servicing of humanity. Nevertheless, now the stage is set for the Great Flood of Judgement to come in, and execute God's wrath against all of humanity.
