Sons of God, Daughters of Men?
Genesis 6 verse 1, Now it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them, that the Sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And the Lord said, My Spirit should not strive with man forever for he is indeed flesh, yet his days shall be 120 years.
First, lets identify the Sons of God.
Now if we let the Bible interpret itself, you notice for one thing that when Luke does the chronology of Jesus in Luke chapter 3 (38) and he says, And Enos was the son of Seth, who was the son of Adam, who was the son of God. Adam is called the son of God. Then you go to 1 John chapter 3 verse 1 and it says, Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us that we should be called sons of God. All right so here its telling us two times the sons of God are people; but theyre committed people, people committed to the Lord.
After Cain killed Abel, Adam and Eve had another son named Seth. And Seth, it says, feared the Lord. Seth and his descendents were children of God. Cain was carnal Enos. That means he was a mortal man. He did not have everlasting life. As long as they remained separate, the truth of God was preserved; but when the sons of God began to marry the children of Seth began to intermarry with the daughters of Cain then that distinction, that holiness, it evaporated. Thats why the next verse says God said My Spirit will not always strive with man. Hes got 120 years before the flood. And so the sons of God were the descendents of Seth that were true to the Lord. They still offered sacrifice to God. The daughters of men were the daughters of Cains descendents who had not the knowledge of God preserved.
Matthew 22: 30For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
We are created in the image of God, Angels were not.
Job 1: 6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Satan came to represent planet earth because he assumed dominion once Adam and Eve sinned against God by following him.
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Where in the Bible did it say that the giants or mighty men, were not human men? Anak, Goliath were giant MEN!
Only God creates species of life, all evidences from the Bible and science prove that species do not cross breed to form a new species or creature. God is not a God of confusion, but of order, and He is the one who creates creatures and the different species of them to procreate after their own kind.
Genesis 1: 11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Sin has greatly deformed man, both in length of years and assumedly stature.
