When the Sons of God Marry the Daughters of Men

In the book of Genesis there is a paragraph of mysterious Scripture.  I say mysterious, because, of the various interpretations that have been given of it.  My interpretation is not an uncommon one, but I do not believe it is the most popular among us.  I think you understand my interpretation by the following commentary on the verses.

“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.  And 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.   And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.  And 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.’  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”  Genesis 6:1-8 (KJV)

I will be looking at the “sons of God” as being the sons of Adam who were following the commands of the LORD as much as they were empowered to do so.  However they were enticed by the beauty, and affections of the “daughters of men” who were the daughters of the ungodly; possibly men who were engulfed by evil in so called magical arts, reading the stars, etc.  Christians of today; for the most part; know the commands given by Paul, and from the Old Testament; “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 6:14ff).

The lesson is also taught in the commandments dealing with farming.  See Deuteronomy 22:10; because the ox and the donkey have two completely different mindsets.  The same is true with a believer and an unbeliever.  There will be often excruciating pains and problems related to the differences.  Marriage is tough enough without entering into already fully divided.

There is warning given in the above printed verses that “My Spirit shall not always strive with man…”  Which seems; at least to me; to be saying their time is short.  That mankind of that day had only 120 years until judgment would come on them.  The wickedness had grown so monstrous that the holy and righteous One could not put up with it any longer; yet He gives them time to change their ways.

Some may ask, “What were the “Giants in the earth in those days…?”  They were possibly those wicked men who were known and popular for their demonism, witchcraft, spells, and other kinds of evil practices.  The imaginations of mankind had run wild.  Could we not say that also of the day in which we live?  I certainly think so.

More and more professing Christians see no wrong in participating the speech, behavior and acts of the world around them.  Christians are marrying the “daughters of men”, joining in the practices, and at the same time attempting  to worship the Creator.

When the sons of GOD marry the daughters of men evil increases.  Good is diminished.  The Word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ is neglected, rejected, and despised.

Christian we might be complaining of losing our rights as citizens of the United States of America; however, we need to be more concerned that we have lost our power with God.  We have lost that because we have joined ourselves with “the daughters of men”, the unrighteous and the unholy.

Thank GOD for His grace.  Just as Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD; so too do we all as we come to Him through His Son Jesus.  I leave this for you to muse on.  God loves you the way you are; however, He loves you too much to leave you the way you are.

  1. In continuation of the Mystery of the sons of God— If the OT is to the coming of Christ then the NT is to the manifestation of the sons of God(Rom 8;19) to the Israel of God(Gal 6:16) of the Covenant (Gal 3:16). The Elect of God sealed with His Name/ the first fruits of the lamb/the remnant seed of the Woman, the lamb itself the first arisen out of the Enmity put by God between the serpent & the Woman at Eden, & by their seeds(spiritual)for the Enmity concerns the salvation of man.They who are called as the Brethren of the Elohim(The Sons of God in heaven, for it was one of them (Archangel Michael)who wrestled with the Patriarch Jacob thus introducing the name Israel meaning Inheritance of God – The trainers. The whole essence being Spiritual, they follow the lamb wherever He goes, keeping the commandments of God & have the testimony of Jesus for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy. They who reign with Christ during the 1000 years called the Millennium & the fruit of their work is seen in revelations the uncountable nos. standing before the Throne of God covered in white garments. These are the 144000 not defiled by women(in contrast to the previous two that is the fall at the time of Noe & in the case of Israel after the flood) meaning averse to any form of sexual corruptions, the core of which is sodom.
    To a visitation by them, in the spirit is found the fullfillment of the words of Jesus ‘The many that I love, I rebuke & chastise”, “For my Yoke is easy & Burden light” come against Sin hence no appeasings unlike the appeasings & earpleasings of this world even by its prophets -They detect & Guide His sheep for unto St. Peter was said “Feed my Sheep” & given the key to the Kingdom & the authority to bind or loose on earth which likewise be done in heaven. They test the sheep in the Spirit by the two commandments of Christ for in these two lie the Law & Prophets,(so let none say Jesus came to take away the law & the prophets but to establish them in the spirit & truth of it, as intended by God in the first place- to the prophecy of the latter days when He will put his laws in to the minds & write it upon the hearts saying you will be my people & I will be your God)) for the Spirit does not lie, tested first by the second commandment & then by the First for it is written “If you do not love your brethren who can be seen how then can you Love God who you cannot see”
    They form an invinsible Army, rank & file, come in the latter rain called the post advent of Pentecost filled in the Holy Spirit led by the lamb, & since an army is to war is to the continuation & fulfillment of the war of King Josiah against Egypt today denoted by the various alters figured within freemasonic Israeli supreme court – The Strong delusion prophesied – the lie of the golden calf “-O Israel these are thy gods that brought thee out of Egypt” & against the lamb the beast gathers the nations to war -The Prophecy & Lo who can stand against the Lord of Hosts ?


      • Tim: In the above post I did refer to the sons of God in the OT to the line of Seth & the daughters of men to the line of Cain, & eventually to the Judgement.of the flood. Now post-flood, God made a Covenant with Abraham to form Israel, however Israel itself fell away & the chief reason was mixing with the heathen by their gods , their baggage & a typical case is the Jezebel & the first major act by Solomon himself, to the beginning of the division. However with the fall of Israel God did not Judge man ‘ cause of the Christ, the manifestation of the Covenant. So it can be said the sons of God fell twice, before & after the flood reflecting the fall at Eden . So now it should be understood that without the risen sons of God pertaining to earth there cannot come the salvation that is why St Paul says in (Rom. 8:19) “the Creature awaits in earnest expectation for the manifestation (revelation) of the Sons of God”, which directly relates to the Kingdom of God on earth. So my comment is to the coming of His Kingdom, for it first comes in the Spirit before it manifests in the Physical, ’cause the spirit is the basis of Life.
        Since it has not openly manifested in the Physical to the revelation , the Kingdom is not yet which is but to understand that the present Physical kingdoms are not of His, but to the prince of this world denoted by the alters figured within the FREEMASONIC Israeli supreme court, till the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. In short salvation comes about by three events 1) the coming of the forerunner John the baptist born in the spirit & power of Elijah who anointed the Messiah through water Baptism in the ways of men & then was baptized in the Holy Spirit in the way of heaven thus anointing the Christ as the Mediator as the Son of man/Son of God. 2) The coming of the Christ – the manifestation of the Covenant(already mentioned) 3) the manifestation of the sons of God this time not to the fall like the previous two – The revelation of the Kingdom of God on earth- salvation unto Man.


  2. Jesus the Son of God was born as man by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Woman according to the law. Like wise an angel to mix & even breed among men will have to be born unto the 2 criteria 1) Seeded by the power of the Holy Spirit 2) born of a woman. In OT to the words the sons of God “Saw & “Chose” does not have any reference to them being born as man which means that these were men & not angels , Thus it can refer only to the predominantly Godly Line of Seth & the predominantly ungodly line of Cain.
