Comment by Wickus:
I am concerned that many well meaning Christians looking for signs for the return of Christ are being deceived . There are many strange teachings floating around and their roots are not in the Bible, but in mysticism. The Bible is not a mystical book and I don’t believe for one second God wants us to look for strange explanations to the straight forward Word given to us.
Lets look at the following Words from Jesus:
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
This verse has lead to many strange teachings like the Nephilim, supposedly giant offspring of demons mating with woman. I will talk about this a little later, but lets see what Jesus meant when with this statement.
Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
There He said it. He never said to find a mystical meaning about the days of Noah, sex with demons or giants wandering the earth. He said that people lived normal lives, although they have heard the warning of judgment and have seen Noah and his family building the ark. That is the message, straight from the Bible. Today there are many signs and warning that Jesus is coming, but people live like it will not happen. I think one day someone is going to come out with a teaching that claims modern technology and electricity is going to be destroyed by something as we are not yet living like in the days of Noah as Jesus predicted. There is nothing mystical about it.
Now some is going to say, but what about the sons of God that took the daughters of men as wives? That happened in Noah’s time, so it must be of relevance today to proof that the Nephilim will return. Let’s look at the Scriptures:
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 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.
Gen 6:4 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.
The question still remains, who are the sons of God? The popular teaching is that they were the fallen angels. Now I will say that it is ridicules to even consider that God will call Himself the Father of demons. That is pure blasphemy! This teaching is spread by people who claim to be teachers but does not know the Bible.
Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
Thank God for His word! The angels were never called sons of God. Jesus is the ONLY Son of God and because a born again Christian is hidden in Christ, we have the right to also be called sons of God.
Now the question is who are these sons of God mentioned in Genesis?
It is a very simple thing. There is really nothing arcane to it at all, as is the case of most imaginary problems, and much ado should never have been made about this. The answer is that men in the Bible are referred to often (not always, but very commonly) as the sons of God. This is evident in the genealogy of Jesus, in the gospel of Luke, where He is traced back to Adam: “. . . who was the son of God.” Man was made in the image of God. Paul said this in I Corinthians 11:7, and woman was made in the image of man. This passage is simply an example of men being referred to as the sons of God and women, because the woman came from the man, as the daughters of men.
There is no importance whatsoever—none of any kind—to be placed on the phraseology of this verse. Such misguided preoccupation would divert us from the point. The story here is about a situation where there were no laws, no enforcers of laws, and no moral rules. Men were living by their consciences. Every man did that which was right in his own eyes. As far as the Bible reveals, there had been only one commandment given in all the history of the human race and that was the commandment not to eat of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. In the first dispensation from Adam to Noah, God experimented with a situation (for man’s learning because God knew what the end of it was going to be, but He was teaching man something) where each man lived by his conscience. God sees the results of this and says: “My spirit will not always strive with men because they are but flesh.” The Septuagint says, “My spirit shall certainly not remain among these people.” The interlinear of the King James, the George Richter Berry edition, puts it more succinctly when it says, “My spirit shall not rule in man forever for he is ever erring.” What is God saying? He is saying simply that this process—this program of God trying to coerce man by ruling in the spirit and conscience of the mortal—was a failure because God was working with fallen beings. He was dealing with a man who was susceptible to the lie and who did not want to do the right thing anyway. What is described here is nothing more nor less than a situation of complete moral irresponsibility. Morally, people were behaving like animals. If a man saw a woman who appealed to him sexually, he just took her into his domicile and they began to cohabitate. Women responded to this in the same undisciplined way.
I urge you dear friends to stay away from strange sensational teachings and set yourself into the pure Word of God that is easy to understand. There is nothing mystical about His word. It was given to children and not to scribes.
God bless you.
