The Angelic Conflict. Part 13. The angelic attack to infiltrate the human race in Gen 6.
Friday, December 16, 2005
Point 4. Two Categories of Fallen Angels.
1. The non-operational angels.
a. The angels of Gen 6 who were involved in the angelic attack to infiltrate the human race, now incarcerated underneath the ground in Tartarus.
Paradise- For Old Testament believers only - empty since the resurrection of Christ.
“The Nephilim” - “Ha nephalim” = the fallen ones, half-human half-demon creatures.
GEN 6:1 Now it came about, when men [ha adam] began to multiply on the face of the land,
“Beni ha elohim” (vs. 2,4) = angels with bodies.
“Ha nephalim” = the progeny of the first two combined; half-human, half-angelic creatures.
Just like there will be a totally different civilization in the Millennium.
“Came in to” - kal future - “bo” = used for sexual relationships.
MAT 22:30 “In the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.”
1. Are you going to say all of Seth’s sons were godly and saved and going to heaven and all the daughters of men were not?
A little common sense tells us God does allow godly men to marry antagonistic women and vice-versa.
As the result of their sexual encounter, we have the “ha nephalim,” verse 4, who are the progeny of the first two combined - half-human, half-angelic creatures.
Why were they heroes if they were just members of the human race born from ungodly humans?
These half-human and half-demonic creatures had superb strength and super intellect.
Because of the influence of these creatures, the genetic destruction of true humanity was highly contagious and spreading out throughout the entire world.
HEB 2:14 Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil;
HEB 10:5 Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering Thou hast not desired, But a body Thou hast prepared for Me;”
