The Sons of God Pt. 1: Who Are They?

Whenever giants or the Nephilim are mentioned, more times than not, the Sons of God are brought up in the same breath. This is all because of what some have named, The Genesis 6 Experiment. Genesis 6:1-4 explains that the Sons of God came down and reproduced with the daughters of man. Many believe that these Sons of God were angels, while others believe they were the righteous sons of Seth. But is it even possible for angels to have sex with women? Can angels even take human form? Aren’t angels terrifying beings? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to understand who the Sons of God were in Genesis 6 in her video, The Sons of God Pt. 1: Who Are They?

The Sons of God Pt. 1: Who Are They?

Who Are The Sons of God?

The Genesis 6 Experiment

1 When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

Genesis 6:1-4

In Genesis 6, the author doesn’t write that the Sons of God and the daughters of man had sex and conceived the Nephilim. It simply said that during the time the Sons of God were sleeping with the daughters of man, the Nephilim were on the earth as well. Oh, and also they were on the earth after that as well.

The New Testament Account

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into [Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if He did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes He condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if He rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.

2 Peter 2:4-10

Peter explains that there are angels who sinned and are now still in chains of gloomy darkness in Tartarus, until Judgment Day. These angels are the same beings as the Sons of God recorded in Genesis 6:1-4.
