Genesis 6:2 (New King James Version)
2 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.
These men are called ‘sons of God’. These daughters are called ‘daughters of men’. For some reason I could not understand the difference between the two sets of men. One group of men are called ‘ sons’, while the other group are just called ‘men’. They both are men right? Yet as I say ‘sons’ of God, my mind can only relate to ONE SON… The Only Begotten Son; Jesus.
These sons are not capitalized; which makes me believe they were mere men. Although being mere men, they now have been given an honor by being called ‘the sons of God’. They who follow God are His children. I wonder if these men were set apart by God unto Himself. And if this be the case these men allowed themselves to be separated from God by going after strange fire… the daughters of men… daughters of men who were taught by their fathers; not taught of God. Even Adam was given a wife in marriage so this would say: God does approve of marriage; yet God chose Eve for Adam.
This particular group of men set their sights on ‘the daughters of men’ and found them to be ‘beautiful’. Quite a temptation!
… and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
“Whom they chose”… NOT whom God chose. Made me think to repent when I read this. Repent for being envious of they who go after Worldly women, who are ‘the daughters of men’, marry them, and begin to live out their dream… in a Worldly way. Women should be on guard too, if you are a professing child of God. It is a great temptation for your desire to lure you into settling for a worldly man, because you believe you may never get married once you pass your youth. The generations of men have produced both wicked daughters, and wicked sons, and upon this earth few are truly serving the Lord Jesus. Let us see the whole part of Genesis 6
The Wickedness and Judgment of Man
1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 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.
3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Noah Pleases God
9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
The Ark Prepared
13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing flood-waters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.”
22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
The Distinction between the two groups of men was ‘ sons of God’, and these men once separated UNTO God now were choosing for themselves what they wanted… ‘ daughters of men’; NOT women of God. This group had an offspring who were called ” Giants on the Earth”; ‘mighty men who were of old, men of renown’. Were these really Giants? They certainly got attention, and must have been Very Proud. I am not so certain these Giants were mighty with physical strength. Today we see mere men rise to power in Political Arenas. Also we see them greatly influencing others by becoming Athletes, or Celebrities, or even Great Religious Leaders. And the worst yet is to Combine the Whole Swoop; Politics, Athletes, Celebrities, and Great Religious Leaders under a term: “Sons of God”.
Sounds odd, and even though I haven’t watched the Film, when I hear the term ‘Giants’, I tend to think of Tall, Mighty, and Strong, yet for some reason those words did not come to mind tonight. The term “ELEVATED” came to mind. Elevated, lifted up, put into High Places, Greatly Esteemed, Noted for, and Worshiped. Very well packaged isn’t it? And to think the Whole Package is not only offered up every Sunday, the Influence is encouraged… by those who call themselves: ‘ the children of the King, the King’s little princess, daughters of the Prince, and of course the sons of God’. These men became accursed. Might make you think twice to call God your daddy.
Afterward I began to think about how much Christianity today is in direct contradiction/rebellion with God’s Word. On the one christian hand we can read the recorded statistics which tell us how many are coming to Christ daily. On the other christian hand we read where the field is ready for Harvest and billions will be lost if we professing christians do not act now. What’s the hype? Why do they both contradict? The Holy Ghost is not in the business of turning the followers of Jesus against one another. This means we are being lied to, and it is not the Holy Ghost.
“for the earth is filled with violence through them”… ” and behold I will destroy them with the earth”… “to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die.” God gave to every individual who has lived, and gives to those who will live the breath of life. Since this is true I do NOT understand why we desire for God to breathe on us. His breath is already in us. Yet it looks like tho we live we are dead. Adam being the first created had the breath of life put into him that he would live, yet was taken out of the garden so that he would not be given the opportunity to taste of the Tree of Life. Knowledge must have had a thought toward the Tree of Life.
There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
… in those days, and also afterward?
Bread of Life: Jesus
26Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
The Giants of this Age will in no manner be able to give you the Bread of Life, nor will they ever be able to tend to your thirsty souls; for their messages will be liken unto a diet of Excitotoxins, and although your senses may seem to enjoy the short lived taste, the damage will be made known by it’s eternal effect. The fruit of that which we see today, even inside the Structured Church, is because we as professing believers want to party like demons, while holding near to our heart a plastic Jesus.
