Thank you BLL, and I defintely agree with you that fallen angels / demons are responsible for certain terminal illnesses that human kind suffer such as various forms forms of cancer and other diseases that man has yet to find a permanent cure to, and I believe that they torture people in other ways as well including certain forms of mental illness just for example, the bible itself bares these things out, and they also know those specifically who belong to Christ Jesus as the demon possessed man who told the false disciples 'Jesus i know, and Paul i know but who are you?' and the demon that was in that man the bible says jump on them and overpowered them and ran them out of that house hurt and naked, that would actually sound humorous if it wasn't so dangerous and creepy.<quoted text>Genesis 6:1-4
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Greetings, salutations, and shalowm, my Brother.
I've heard that interpretation before, that the "sons of God" were actually direct descendants of Adam, y, Enos, Cainan, etc., etc. But, of course, I question such assertions. And why?
Well, for starters, Jude 1:6 declares, "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. And secondly, 2Peter 2:4 declares, "For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment." Now, here's my issue.
It's hard to accept that the angels mentioned by Jude and Peter are merely those that rebelled with the devil, and that this is why they were cast down to hell and "reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day." I say this, because wicked spirit-beings have always been accredited for tormenting and injuring people, especially during the days our anointed Savior walked among us. Obviously, then, only a specific group of these wicked spirit-beings are mentioned by Jude and Peter. But, which? Note, too, that Peter seems to have wrote about these events in the order they occurred, beginning with these angels, then mentioning Noah, then Sodom and Gomorrha, and finally Lot.
As I believe, Jude and Peter were referring to the "sons of God" mentioned at Genesis 6. What also causes me to believe as I do is the fact that a distinction is made between "men" in verse 1 and these "sons of God" in verses 2 and 4.
What say you, my Brother?
Howevet I still don't believe that they have the ability to procreate with human women, at least not anymore, but I agree with the idea that those angels that left their habitation and are being reserved in chains of darkness are a different group aside from that 3rd of the heavenly host that rebelled along side satan.
