The Sons of God Pt. 2: The gods

In the book of Genesis, we have an account of mysterious beings referred to as the Sons of God (Elohim). These beings came down and slept with human women and, as a result, had supernatural children. In part one, we explained that these beings recorded in what some refer to as The Genesis 6 Experiment weren’t just the righteous sons of Seth, but they were actually celestial angels. So, if they were angels, why didn’t God just refer to them as angels? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture for the answer in her video, The Sons of God Pt. 2: The gods.

The Sons of God Pt. 2: The gods

First Appearance of the Sons of God (Elohim)

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

Genesis 6 took place, not because mankind’s DNA needed to be corrupted or even because of some experiment. It took place because of the lust of the celestial beings.

One of the First Things the Sons of God (Elohim) Did

Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:4-7

The Sons of God (Elohim) were from before the foundation of the earth was laid. That means they were created at the same time Heaven and its entirety was created. Therefore, they are celestial angels created in Heaven on the first day before the earth was even formed.

What Was the Purpose of the Sons of God?

What are the Sons of God?

1 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”

Psalms 82:1-7

The Sons of God, according to God Himself, aren’t just regular celestial angels, they are the gods. The gods of old. The gods that other nations worshipped and bowed down to. In Psalms 82, God Almighty refers to the Sons of Elohim as the Sons of the Most High. When did this take place?

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. The Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?”

Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for no reason? 10 Have you not put a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and touch all that he has, and he will curse you to your face.” 12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand.” So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.

Job 1:6-12
