The Sons of God and the Daughters of Men

*****Genesis 6:1-8

Genesis 6:1 1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3And 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.

4There 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] -- authority, famous --

5And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD..

THERE ARE FOLKS, WHO WOULD HAVE US TO BELIEVE THAT THESE “SONS OF God” were angels.

~But as we get into this study we’ll see that, [the sons of God] are the believing dissidence of the Godly line of Seth, and that the [daughters of man] are the dissidence of the ungodly line of Cain~

~Let me remind us 1st of all that when Satan caused Adam & Eve to sin, God made Satan the promise that one day the seed of the woman would crush his head,

{Gen. 3:15} and from that point on Satan has been stabbing at the promised Redeemer, in trying to corrupt the blood line of Gods people, trying to destroy all godliness from mankind, and keep the Savior from being born.

~One of Satan’s most successful devices is compromise, he wants to delude God’s people into abandoning their privileged position of separation from sin, and then he can corrupt them and cause them to be ineffective for the cause of Christ.

The prophets warned the Jewish people not to compromise with the idolatrous worship of the pagans around them, but their warnings weren’t heeded; and the nation experienced shameful defeat at the hands of their enemies.

What was Satan’s plan for defeating God’s people in Noah’s day? To entice the godly line of Seth ("the sons of God} to mix with the ungodly line of Cain ("the daughters

of men") and thus abandon their devotion to the Lord. It was the same temptation that Christians face today: be friendly with the world James 4:4), love the world (1 John 2:15-17). and conform to the world (Rom. 12:2), rather man be separated from the world

(2 Cor. 6:14-7:1).

Of course, this could lead to being "condemned with the world" (1 Cor. 11:32). Lot

is an example of this danger (Gen.19).

~Some interpreters view Gen.6:1-7 as an invasion of fallen angels who cohabited with women and produced a race of giants.

But the theory creates more problems than it solves, one of which is the union of sexless spirit beings with flesh and blood humans.
