    Sons of God are men in Gods image .. Male and female He created us .. No angels were created to procreate and the book of Enoch is a lie .. It clearly claims that all, ''ALL'' fallen angel offspring ''nephillim'' were 300 cubits tall = 450' tall .. Ridiculous and stupid .. Angels first estate were to serve, worship God and be messengers .. Then you have ''kinds after their kinds'' to get around and convince that the lie there were angels capable of producing children mating with mankind .. Next you have to convince they could care for a family instead of killing them .. So stop it and quit making demons heroes, sickening to give demons that much credit .. Quit wasting valuable time on that nonsense and stick with truth and away from Jewish and other fables ..
  • Elijah for verse 4
    The Giants mentioned in the KJV are the Nephilium. Nehpilium's root word is nefilim.

    The Hebrew wordnefilimis sometimes directly translated as "giants" or taken to mean "the fallen ones" (from the Hebrewnaphal, "to fall").

    Goliath was a large man but not a descendant of the Nephilium. Other scriptures point out that rebellious humans or Angels have fallen from God's Grace. Even though there were giant humans throughout time, does not mean that they descendants from nephilium.

    Fallen Angels are considered to be giants in mankinds eyes as illistrated throughout the bible.

    The Israelites that reported back after spying upon the Palestinians saw large men not nephilium!

    The Nephilium must have been Demons that were present while the sons of God lusted the daughters of man. Perhaps, they had influenced the sons of God to lust the women and rebel against God in this manor. No where in scripture does it state that the Nephilium were they offspring of the sons of God and daughters of men. It only gives reference to them being present at that time and afterwards.
  • Elijah for verse 4
    Sons of God are mentioned in the bible many times. The Righteous Angels are referred to as Sons of God at the time of their creation. Job also describes them as sons of God. Christians are referred to as Sons of God.

    So, the title has to do with righteousness. Jesus was called "Son of Man" meaning human, and Called " son of God" meaning divine nature(without sin); God.

    Fallen Angels lost their title when they rebelled with Satan; their new father or leader.

    Demons can not be the Sons of God. The sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6:4 couldn't be holy Angels because their is no mention of Angels falling away after the initial falling away or rebellion. Therefore, they must be the humans who honor God in that time. Blessed are the righteous and peace makers, for they shall be called sons of God.
  • Elijah Zmuda for verse 4
    Demons cannot take on flesh -- there is nowhere in the Bible that says that they can. Of course we know that angels, both heavenly and fallen, can appear in human form, but they remain spirit beings only. God also said let every creature produce after it's own kind. This means that a human can not mate with a goat and have a pan as an offspring(Mythology). The same applies for Demons, they can not have offspring with humans. Besides, if God wanted more angels he would create them himself. Also, according to Jesus, Angels do not marry in heaven, that means they do not have offspring or engage in sexual relations to reproduce. If Angels dont marry while in heaven, how could they when kicked from heaven.

    Furthermore, Sons of God are referred to as humans over and over again throughout the bible. There is a scripture of sons of God referring to the holy Angels in Ezekiel. Of course, you all know that a holy angel will not disobey(sin) God.

    My previous interpretation of scriputre about Genesis 6:4 is still most logical and theological.
  • Elijah Zmuda for verse 4
    I believe that the Nephilium were fallen Angels. Angels are not given into marriage as scripture states. Therefore, they have no sex organs(male nor female) and can not have intercourse with any human, angel, or creature.

    I don't see in scripture where it states that the Nephilium were the children of the sons of God and daughters of man. It only mentions that they were present during the time that the sons of God married the daughters of man and afterwards.

    Men of reowned is another way of saying popular or famous. Of old must mean legendary. Adam, Abel, cain, seth, and Enoch were renounced men of old. Besides, a half demon and half man is not a man nor demon. Therefore this could not be in reference to the Nephilium.

    Sons of God is used to refer to a righteous lineage where Jesus Christ will come from. Noah was declared a righteous man. I would say that seth's blood line would be referred to as "sons of God". God sent and separated cain from the rest. I believe that God wanted to have a pure righteous bloodline from seth to Jesus Christ. Remember, God only upset at mankind for the interbreeding of Seth's clan and Cain's clan. He said nothing about the demons.

    Because of all the unrighteousness God limited the age of all humans, even the men of renowned of old. The only ones that God said he would make a covenant with was Noah's family. Apparently, Noah's family was considered righteous and pure. So, The Nephilium were demons or fallen Angels, The sons of God were the lineage of seth, and the daughter of man were cain's descendants.
  • Hello. I believe the Nephillum were the children of angels (sons of men) and humans having sexual relations. Genesis 6:1-4.
  • UNITED STATES in PROPHESYMishael
    I've read in a book on Prophesies ( they're out there. Buy one)

    That America/United States is called in prophesy: Islands in the Sea. That's because the continents are surrounded by water. Also, Britain, Scotland, Australia and others.

    Here are the scriptures:

    Isaiah 11:11

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Isaiah 13:22

    And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

    Isaiah 41:1

    Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

    Isaiah 42:12

    Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

    Isaiah 42:15

    I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.

    Isaiah 59:18

    According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

    Jeremiah 50:39

    Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

    America is not without sin. Plenty of people describe it as the new whore of Babylon.

    Have we not seen people who murder, shoot up synagogues, set them on fire: rain hatred on them sunup to past midnight?

    How many churched people have come in here recently, saying, despite going to church regular, they barely know anything about scripture or prophesy? Quite a bit.
  • CHARLES JORDAN
    I see there is no mention of the NEPHILIM, as mentioned in other Bibles ( eg the Hebrew Bible )

    Normally in verse 4
  • Greg
    Charles Jordan,

    Concerning the word NEPHILIM

    The word "giants" (Genesis 6:4) is the English transliteration of the Hebrew word "nephiyl" (Strong's #5303) and means; a feller, a bully or tyrant- a giant.

    This word "nephiyl" is a derivative of the primitive root "naphal" (Strong's #5307) and means; to FALL (in a great variety of applications), and is used in Scripture for the following words:

    cast down- (fallen angels) look at the book of Jude

    cease

    die- (what Satan and the angels are guaranteed of)

    fall away

    fugitive- (Cain, product of Satan and Eve)

    (cause to) lie down- (Satan and Eve in the Garden)

    lying

    overthrow

    (make to) rot

    slay

    throw down:

    It is now PLAIN TO SEE that the progenitors of the giants were the angels.

    The Hebrew language is the language of God.

    Hebrew is the language God used to form heaven and earth and everything into existence.

    "and God SAID" (Genesis 1:3)

    Hebrew is the only language on the planet that is both phonetic and pictorial.

    The Hebrew number system is contained within it's 22 letter aleph-bet.

    Learning Biblical Hebrew = a deeper understanding of Scripture.
  • CHARLES JORDAN
    The reason why I mentioned it, is because of the book of 1 ENOCH.

    He was the 7th from Adam and was the go-between for the Watchers and God in heaven.

    Their children were the giants( Nephilim), as you mentioned.

    Their spirits became demons.... the powers of the Air, as mentioned in Ephesians 6 verse 12 and on.

    And THAT IS WHO WE ARE UP AGAINST.

    with Satan in charge of these powers.

    ... of course using the Synagogue of Satan ( or human dupes), as mentioned in Revelation 3.

    Now, ask yourself, how many Christians even know that.

    Anyway... cheers.

  • Mishael
    I think Isaiah may of seen or heard a computer. Read this:

    Isaiah 8:19

    And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits (demons), and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

    Technology is how the Antichrist will eventually hunt people down.

    Should we hoard some aluminum? Does that work? I don't know that either.

    Noah had a big job to do and it took around 110 years of his life building that boat. Using a modern "Royal Egyptian Cubit" of 20.6 inches, Noahs boat was 157 metres long. I think with Noah being an Adamite man of considerable stature, his cubit would have actually been bigger from elbow to finger tip and the ark much longer. The land bridges would have been in place back then and the continents all joined together before the great flood.

    I love the bible and I know that the kjv is very nice to read

    They follow man, not the bible. It is not scriptural. Follow no man! It is corruption. Clearly, they do not believe that Jesus is the son of God. Jesus and our heavenly father one. Jesus and the father are one. God is the spirit, Jesus is the flesh. One. Now, the churches are corrupt. The bible says " come out of her and be he separate. "Look at the corruption. Nothing but entertainment and vanity. Rare for them to speak about the end times. The signs are everywhere. Stay far away from 501c3 churches. In order for a tax break to be given to a church they must be politically correct and must refrain from talking about sin. Don't believe me? Look it up! Research everything!!!
  • Joseph Whittle for verse 3
    Why isn't this verse being associated with Israel's rebirth Mathew 24:34, along with Jesus' comment regarding "as in the days of Noah" in Mathew 24:37. Additionally, Daniel 12:4 says "knowledge will increase" and Daniel 12:10 says "the wise shall understand." Modern Biological, medical, and Nutritional experts say human body can live 120 years when taken care ofproperly.
  • Jacqueline walker for verse 8
    DON'T GET GOD AND Jesus TWISTED UP TOGETHER. GOD ruled this earth for years, and in some Bible the Bible start with the Almighty God. and his work is done then Lord God go to the garden. Those are two separate gods. Plus when Moses saw God - God had Moses put his hand in his shirt and when Moses pulled it out his hand was white. And God also repented to Moses for the doing of the people. And to get deeper- remember the king that went to the top of hill before that; another king ask that king who these people that look like dirt? And that king said while on top of the mountain as far as you see that's how far they go. So stop rewriting the Bible. And leaving such verses out. And stop erasing the color off the statues of Africa..

    I don't know what you are talking about. Jesus and the father are ONE! There are NOT two Gods. God in spirit, Jesus in flesh. When the fallen angels and human women , also fallen angels bare offspring with animals also, that is where the giants came from born of them. monsters ! Corrupt flesh. The reason Noah and family were saved is because they were perfect in their generation and their flesh was not corrupt with tainted blood of the fallen angels. Read it again. Somehow you have it twisted.
  • S
    Read John 1:1
  • Gordon campbell
    were there giants on earth before Adam and Eve?
  • S
    No.Adam and Eve were the first humans. Adam called Eve the mother of all living.
  • Bob Hilt
    This is a very interesting chapter of the bible concerning Adam and Eve being the only ones in the Garden.

    Ezekiel 31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.

    4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent out her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.

    5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.

    6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

    7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters.

    8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.

    9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him. (Family trees? Trees have emotions, like envy?)
  • S
    Thank you. I like that. I listened to Ezekiel this Sunday. I want listen to it again. Someone left a comment on Ezekiel in Genesis 1 that i also like.
  • Bob Hilt
    Gordon The bible does not indicate there were angels prior to Genesis 6. So my answer would be no.

    But there were giants after the flood think David and Goliath and the philistines.
  • S
    Wasn't the devil the one that used the serpent.

    Wasn't the devil an angel before he sinned?
  • Bob Hilt
    S yes Satan was an angel and then he sinned

    Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that OLD SERPENT old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • Mickey for verse 6
    Mickey on Isaiah 14:12-16

    One of satans other names is: DESTROYER. He is the ACCUSER of the brethren. He is a murderer, a liar. Revelation 12:10, Job chapter 1-2; Zechariah

    Actually in Isaiah chapter 14:12-16, satan says I WILL 5 times!

    One of satans other names is: DESTROYER.

    There is the Will Of God. God gave FREE WILL to Adam and Eve.

    But there is another will operating that is not a part of Gods purpose for earth or mankind. I think when satan was kicked out of Heaven, he retained his WILL.

    Don't blame God for the bad things that happen to you and others. We have Jesus now. I look at Job and he was a righteous man. Keep yourself & family soaked in prayer! Be alert
  • There is no discrepancy in God's Word. In regard to God's repenting because He created man in earth was not because of God sinning as man does. God cannot sin. Repentance is being sorrowful in your heart for human sin (disobeying God). God was sorrowful for His creation, not GOD sinning. Thank God, Jesus paid the price for OUR sin...He was without sin....God loved us (creation) enough to make way to be with Him through the Cross and Blood of His pure Son. Today repent for your sin, ask Jesus to save you, believe in your heart He died and rose again and confess Him as your Lord and Savior. Saved by grace..a gift from God...God with us..Thank You Lord Jesus!!!
  • Bob Hilt for verse 6
    RC that is the best explanation I have ever heard of repentance.
    well done. Mark 1:15 - .... Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,......And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
    Mark 6:12 - And they 12 apostles went out, and preached that men should repent.
    Jesus speaking in Luke 13:3 - I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
