    Evil spirits do not have bodies of flesh , but the can possess people and animals ,

    The sons of God here in Genesis, are Gods people at that time , if you will notice be fore that time men began to call on the Lord , these are the sons of God ...
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 6
    correct. Sons of God are humans. I'm a son of God.
  • God made everythingLive for Him NOW - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Before they were cast out of heaven with Lucifer: Lucifer was an archangel. The 1/3 of the angels cast out with him had bodies.

    You explain to me how the (evil) angels procreated with Daughters of Adam and Eve and giants were born. How did Goliath get a giant body?

    I read Genesis and other books at a snails crawl, PLUS I read every reference to those scriptures. Write it down chronologically. Then I pray for the Holy Spirit to show me how it happened.

    It takes time! I love to study. I love to uncover mysteries. It's in my dna. When I was drafting (18 yrs), the boss would drop table-size drawings on my desk to redraw because the engineers had trouble making underground jobs work. I call it spaghetti drafting. Dump the whole bowl out, start at the beginning, draw it to scale to the end. I identify all the branches. I love details, but I love God greater than all that. I'm eternally grateful He pulled me out of the pit and set his love on me. Means more to me than my life. I died, but He resurrected me and He is my north arrow. I wish I could explain better.

    I let go of the world. I've been single 37 yrs. Studying Gods Word (Bible) for 36 years. Nothing else satisfies better than the things that God will reveal. I wait days to hear or see Him show me things. I go days without food. Daily life interrupts. One time the Holy Spirit sang: There's Room at the Cross For You. The pure sweetness brought tears of deep joy. Any thing I learn; I share it.

    Like now: you are going to LOVE heaven. He has spared no effort to make it leave you breathless at the Beauty, the detail of each creation. There will be food even tho we don't have to eat or drink. There will be music, dancing, wild abandon of pure joy. Nobody is jealous, petty, impatient, no disdain. It really is heaven.

    Live for Him now. Let the world go. Help others be ready to go with Jesus now. That's what He intercedes for: the Harvest.

    Bless you. Mishael.

    They are unable to mate , not possible , just another heresy going around
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Correct. Angels good and bad ones have no sex organs. They neither marry or are given in marriage.
  • Crucifying Our Fleshly Desires - in Reply on Genesis 6
    28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

    29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

    30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

    Comment: It is the believers that will be like the angels of God in heaven.

    That's a big deal to process. A lot of people in past days have been fixated on A False Doctrine being taught that Eve had sex with satan. See how easily false prophets put out false doctrines like a new brand of sneakers? Stay focused. The Bible warns us that this will be a huge problem in the final days: being led away; wandering off.

    Heaven is going to be fun. Stop thinking carnal. We're supposed to be crucifying our own flesh, daily.

    Better to marry than burn with lust.

    (Advice) marry a Christian.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Extreme fixation on angels and human sex organs could be cured by spending an hour praying in the Prayer Request Room. With people who have real problems and need someone who knows how to pray with a little mercy and grace.

    Jesus didn't think of it as a waste of time. He's at the right hand of God right now praying for all saints. (US)

    Have you read all of Mathew 26 ?

  • Jim on Genesis 6
    Genesis 6 clearly demonstrates that God has the mind of a toddler or small child, throwing a hissy fit over his creation and then getting angry and murdering them, before crying over having had a hissy fit and getting upset and saving noah. No adult doesn't just pull all the weeds because one is a dandelion and looks like a flower - no, an adult will pull all the weeds, i.e. not save noah because he appears as though he is not a weed, even though he was, being human.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Jim, it was troubling to read your understanding of Genesis chap 6 & particularly likening the Almighty God to a child throwing a 'hissy fit'. You demonstrate a very poor understanding of the Doctrine of God if all you can see in that passage is a simple-minded, irrational God.

    If God Who has the wisdom & power to create all things out of nothing, but as you state, shown Himself to be incapable of controlling His Anger & not displaying the required commonsense, then where does your determination leave you as a simple sinful created being speaking so highly & ignorantly against the Holy Living God?

    Could not your 'wisdom' in judging the Character of God as being flawed, leave you wallowing in your ignorance as one who is destitute of knowledge of Who God is & of His Plans for mankind, that you attempt to make judgement on? It seems that you would need to be at God's side, in full knowledge of His Plans & Purposes, seeing the rampant wickedness of mankind, noting the "preacher of righteousness" (Noah, 2 Peter 2:5) living amongst the wicked, & God's desire to give mankind another chance rather than wiping them all out forever, before even a reasonable judgement from you can be given.

    Rather, we should all plead ignorance on matters that are way beyond our knowledge & our limited narrow worldly perspectives & submit to the All-Wise God Whose Word that goes out accomplishes all that He pleases. By declaring what you have just said only serves to demonstrate that part of your thinking that is perverted & in darkness about the God before Whom you will one day have to stand.

    14 What then shall we say?(AC) Is God unjust? Not at all!(AD) 15 For he says to Moses,

    "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,

    and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."[f](AE)

    16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God's mercy.(AF) 17 For Scripture says to Pharaoh: "I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."[g](AG) 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.(AH)
  • Ken Reeder on Genesis 6
    How long did it take to build the ark ?
  • EJL - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Hi Ken Reeder,

    Many believe that it took Noah about 100 years to build the ark, (with the help of his three sons).

    Noah was commissioned to build the ark by God at approximately the same time his three sons were born (not triplets), look at Genesis 5:32, 6:10-14.

    Noah was 600 years old when the ark was finished ( Genesis 7:6).

    Genesis is an amazing book, one of my personal favorites!

    Blessings
  • Linda on Genesis 6
    Why is there never any story told about the sons of God and the daughters of men in chapter 5 v 2 It seems to me that this should be expanded on determining Gods chosen people through Adam.
  • EJL - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Hi Linda,

    Gen 6:2, 4, Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, Psalms 29:1, 89:6, Dan 3:25) refer to the expression "sons of God." I believe that this is the Hebrew idiom referring to angels. It is a figure of speech.

    I believe that the sons of God left heaven, came down to earth ( Jude 1:6), and took to wife all of whom they chose from the daughters of Adam. The children of these marriages were the giants. The giants were there on earth before the flood, and "also after that" ( Genesis 6:4), meaning that they did indeed survive the flood, and the giants are mentioned throughout the Bible.

    Noah is the representative at this time period for the seed line that will bring forth the Messiah.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Sometimes we're given a little more information about those that lived between Adam & Noah, but not a lot which would require volumes more to include details of their lives, their marriages, exploits, religious observances or diversions, etc. The Bible does focus on the generations leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ so one can track His lineage all the way back to Adam: Luke 3:23-38.

    However, post Flood, God's chosen (Israel) came through the line of Shem, Noah's eldest son.
  • Hunter King on Genesis 6
    where in the bible does it say that being ay is a sin cuz i read it and it says it brings sin not that it is sin adn everyhting brigns sin
  • Steve B - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Hunter - do not read between the lines, or try and do the least for Christ's sake. Romans Chapter 1 is very clean what has happened in the the past and what is currently happening today around the world. Do not be fooled as God is not mocked.

    Romans Chapter 1 V 22-32

    22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But, if you are God's then you will take up your cross daily, and fight the good fight of righteousness. May God Bless your days - strengthening you.

  • Celine on Genesis 6:3
    Wondering how to reconcile the years of man: in Gen 6 it's 120yrs but in Psalm 90 it's 70 yrs. And although some say it was pre-flood and post flood--do you have any other thoughts why?

    Thanks.

    Regarding Celine's question on Genesis 6:3: The 120 years may be referring to the time from the moment the Lord spoke those words until the flood commenced.

Please review our 'Letter of Introduction' on the 'Introduction' page that highlights the history of our work.

    Please read 1 Cor. 2:14 and John 8:43-45. Both readings will explain why you have such a difficult time understanding our testimony, which is of God (Cor. 2:1).

    What ever happened to Cain? Did he die in the flood? I can't find where he died.
  • Brian D. - in Reply on Genesis 6
    Genesis Chapter 5 records the genealogy of Seth the son of Adam after Cain killed Able. Seth's line of descendants follow down to Noah and his three sons. Seth's line survived the flood but Cain's line did not.
  • Mishael to Adam on Genesis 6:4
    This is you Adam. It's what makes you breathe. 1 month ago Adam

    Thanks so much for responding! I'll continue praying for you.

    This may seem like a strange thing to ask, but can I challenge you to something? Can you help us pray and respond to others on Prayer Request page by writing a reply to others in this (by clicking the reply button underneath their comment)? There are many needs and people facing various challenges. Some of the challenges different people have different insight on as we each have different experience. Everyone has value and anyone who helps lift up others to encourage them is highly regarded and appreciated by the person. You're needed. They need you as much as you need others. If you help me with this I bet you will feel good doing it. You don't have to have all the answers by any means. Sometimes just someone listening and caring makes a world of difference to someone. I just ask you to try it. May God bless you!

    Scriptural Facts-Gen.6:4:

    1. Heavenly or Fallen Angels can not procreate according to biblical scripture. ( Matt. 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:34)

    2. The Nephilium were present before, at the time, and after the sons of God and daughters of man had ***. They can't be their offspring, because they would have to be born first.

    3. Sons of God could mean holy Angels or holy men according to scripture. ( Job 1:6; 2:1), ( Psalm 82:6, Hos. 1:10; John 10:34-38, Matt. 5:9; Luke 3:38; Rom. 8:14)

    * The sons of God are the renown men of old(from seth's lineage)and were tempted by the Nephilium (Fallen angels) to lust the daughters of men(from Cain's lineage).
