Discussion for Jude 1

  • A disciple
    I think I should correct something from my last post. In Genesis 4:25-26 was mentioned when "men began to call on the Name of the LORD;" or more accurately, "When men began to call themselves by the Name of the LORD." As the birth of Seth was pronounced by his parents as being to replace Abel whom Cain murdered; and so the new beginning of the sacred line of sons of God. Cain chose to be heathen.
  • A disciple
    Mr. Gibson (cont.); Looking at the places in Scripture where the term, "sons of God" is used: it is never used for the devil or any damned evil spirit; but for them to whom the Word of God has come! to MEN OF FAITH! In Job, it does not say that Satan was a son of God, but that he came in among them when THEY came to present themselves to the LORD. Gen. 4:25-26 was the beginning of the sons of God.
  • A disciple
    K Patrick Gibson; In Revelation it is described as the dragon dragging 1/3 of his angels with him, when he was cast out of heaven. Jesus said that He saw Satan like lightning fall from heaven. In Isaiah 14 we are shown what his perversion and sin was in lusting after God's throne and glory. Genesis 6 is NOT about demons but apostate men with whom the Spirit strove against their lusts of the flesh.

    Anyone...... Gen.6:1-4 and Jude:1-6.....can it be said that we are reffering to angels from Heaven coming down to earth ???????
