So, you cannot get away from the original language. Here are ALL the OT verses on this phrase: Sons of God (ben Elohim).
Genesis 6:2 (KJV) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Genesis 6:4 (KJV) 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.
Job 1:6 (KJV) Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Job 2:1 (KJV) Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.
Job 38:7 (KJV) When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Using scripture itself, you cannot translate it anyother way than that they are angels. Then when you get into the Hebrew the word for giants is “the fallen ones” nefelim. The more science comes into alignment with the Scriptures, we begin to understand more of the truth written in it.
If I said God would send a strong man from a country whose image is a lion and defend Jerusalem like the birds, what would you say? here’s the prophecy HE knew he fulfilled:
Isaiah 31:4-5 (KJV) For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, [he] will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve [it].
Who was this man? General Allenby in 1917. The Turks, having never seen a plane before, didn’t know what to think. When Gen. Allenby threw down a note demanding they surrender, all they read was “ALENBI” Son of the Prophet! And he took Jerusalem without a fight.
Christians need to study quantum physics so they can explain to the scientists the power of God and What (or better put Who) is holding the atom (and thereby the universe) together.
Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
As kings and priests we need to understand the scriptures and how they relate to the world and vice versa. It’s no wonder the world doesn’t listen to us, they cannot understand the Scriptures without the Holy Spirit and too many cannot understand them to explain the truth and possibilities of events from the Scriptures that explain mysteries found in the world. Christians reject dinosaurs because they don’t exist today, yet there’s tons of fossils. We see with our spiritual eyes and they see with their physical eyes. Both groups have shortcomings, but we as Christians have the Holy Spirit to teach us in all truth, but too many don’t even want to understand science because “it’s evil and rejects God” so learn it and show them!
I’ve never read it or heard any preacher say this, but I KNOW for a fact that there is a chemical process that occurs when two people marry. I have a “gift” of smell. I can smell things others can’t pick up for minutes after I’ve said something. My family calls me a human blood-hound. I say this because when I married my wife, MY chemistry, my smell changed and so did hers. I cannot tell her apart from me when clothing is put before me. Scientist, as far as I know, have not pick up on this, nor will they because the Scriptures say:
Genesis 2:24 (KJV) Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
So what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah was more than just homosexuality.
Jude 1:7 (KJV) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Some will say “it’s just the same sex” but it says different, other or strange in Greek.
Or they knew the two men were not human from experience, but that takes faith to believe such a thing. But then we have Gen 6:4 KJV as an explanation. I’m not expert, but it makes perfect sense to me because whereas God creates (bara) Satan can only imitate. What better way to imitate than Dolly the sheep! Mixing different flesh (you see it in all the movies today – Spiderman, Heroes, X-Men, Thor, even the Spielberg’s movie Taken, which fit perfectly into this scenario.) Anyhow, in the end, it is what it is, however one chooses to understand the information presented.
False logic: Bad boys of Cain mate with the good girls of Seth and produce giants! Hmmm… Human + Human = Giant? I think not. Well, the world has accepted them as aliens (Stargate, Ancient Aliens – History Channel) but we Christians demand that they’re only humans. Yet at the same time, logically, we throw out the door logic by believing in talking donkeys, bringing back people from the dead, men walking on water, teleportation (Philip), levitation (Enoch, Elijah and Jesus ascending), axe heads floating on water and wood sinking… Look at what they did the to the stenographer for the Congress the other day. After declaring that God will not be mocked three times they took her off to the hospital – not the police station! I mean it just goes on and on, yet when we bring in the deceiver and his activities, “OH NO! That’s not possible!”
In the original Hebrew there’s a very curious word, highlighted, in these verses:
Isaiah 26:14 (KJV) [They are] dead, they shall not live; [they are] deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
Isaiah 26:19 (KJV) Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
The word is Raphaim. Rapha means “to cure” or “to cause to heal” and the “im” is like the “s” in cars. So why is this plural word for cures translated as dead? This word is found only eight times in the Scriptures and here are the other six (the word is highlighted – the unhighlighted words for dead is mooth, meaning dead):
Job 26:5 (KJV) Dead [things] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
Psalms 88:10 (KJV) Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise [and] praise thee? Selah.
Proverbs 2:18 (KJV) For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto thedead.
Proverbs 9:18 (KJV) But he knoweth not that the dead [are] there; [and that] her guests [are] in the depths of hell.
Proverbs 21:16 (KJV) The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
Isaiah 14:9 (KJV) Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, [even] all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
Notice something about these… they are NOT going to see the resurrection. Yet Revelation says the dead will rise for judgment, why not these? What’s so unique about these dead that by their demise we have a “cure”!? Why is it God didn’t send a preacher to Sodom or Gomorrah? Why weren’t Noah’s brothers and sisters saved? Why was Noah “perfect” in his “generation”? (The word perfect is “complete perfection”, but he was a sinner like us… so what else can it mean? “Generation” is the same root word as “genetics”.) Why no mercy for those living in Canaan? Doesn’t seem like a loving God. Because of these unnatural beings! God said ALL FLESH was spoiled! Gen 6:12 KJV. The word for “violence” is also the word for “damaged”! Literally “all flesh is filled with damage”! What better way to attack the prophecy of Gen 3:15 KJV than to mess with the seed line of the Messiah! And notice the devil has a “seed”!
King Og was the last of the giants and he was 15 feet tall – a remnant of the Nephalim – “fallen ones”. If a bad person has a child with a good person, as many believe Gen 6:4 KJV refers to, there’d be giants all over the world today. But the tallest man ever recorded is 8 feet 3 inches. Hmmm… something’s not right then. Why is it so hard to believe the word of God? “But there’s no marriage in heaven Matthew 22:30 (KJV)” That’s right, but it doesn’t say they can’t do evil as the fallen angels have done. Marriage is a ceremony not just the act of mating. Why are these particular fallen angels in prison and not all?
Jude 1:6 (KJV) 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.
Are not all fallen angels (demons) who “kept not their first estate”? Why then do demons freely roam the earth today? They’re not in prison. So why then? What was so special about these fallen angels? In the absence of specific information, one must then conclude that they are those fallen angels (Nephalim – fallen ones) who mated, illegally, with humans to produce giants. It’s logical and makes perfect sense with the information we have from the Scriptures.
As I’ve shown in my previous list of verses, the “sons of God” are all angles. Man wasn’t present at the foundation of the earth so how can they sing for joy? I just don’t get how people cannot believe all of the Scriptures and yet hold onto other supernatural events. Of all the stories of evil in the OT, Jesus picked both Noah and Lot as a sign for the last days. While I believe it is indeed because they were evil, both also refer to “strange flesh” and “fallen ones”. These hybrids are a result of what we call today genetic manipulation. We are taking DNA from different species and quickly mixing all kinds of flesh to make unnatural creatures. Just look at the glowing pigs in Taiwan. So much of what we eat today is GMO (genetically modified foods) and they’re causing real issues like food allergies. The GMO wheat in China has created superbugs they are unable to kill. Today if you don’t want a girl, we can tweak the process… what green eyes in your children, no problem. Some day soon, someone will try to mix a spider and a human in an attempt to make a superhuman. Don’t think it’s possible? Read in the BBC about the spider-goat!
Does anyone today not believe that Hollywood is run by the devil? Look at the movies and songs he’s putting out. If you dare, read the lyrics of Katy Perry’s song E.T.Here’s the important part:
You’re so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?
Your touch magnetizing
Feels like I am floating
Leaves my body glowing
They say, be afraid
You’re not like the others
They don’t understand you
You’re from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I’m ready to go
Lead me into the light
Kiss me, kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison
Take me, take me
Wanna be your victim
Ready for abduction
Boy, you’re an alien
Your touch so foreign
You’re so supersonic
Wanna feel your powers
Stun me with your laser
Your kiss is cosmic
Every move is magic
You’re from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I’m ready to go
Lead me into the light
Hmmm… sounds like Gen 6:4 KJV to me… What more evidence do you need then from the actions of the devil?
Anyhow, as I said before, it is what it is.
