Indian Prayer

Native American Indian Prayer

An Indian Prayer

by H. Kent Craig

My grandfather is the fire
My grandmother is the wind
The Earth is my mother
The Great Spirit is my father

The World stopped at my birth
and laid itself at my feet

And I shall swallow the Earth whole when I die
and the Earth and I will be one

Hail The Great Spirit, my father
without him no one could exist
because there would be no will to live

Hail The Earth, my mother
without which no food could be grown
and so cause the will to live to starve

Hail the wind, my grandmother
for she brings loving, lifegiving rain
nourishing us as she nourishes our crops

Hail the fire, my grandfather
for the light, the warmth, the comfort he brings
without which we be animals, not men

Hail my parent and grandparents
without which
not I
nor you
nor anyone else
could have existed

Life gives life
which gives unto itself
a promise of new life

Hail the Great Spirit, The Earth, the wind, the fire
praise my parents loudly
for they are your parents, too

Oh, Great Spirit, giver of my life
please accept this humble offering of prayer
this offering of praise
this honest reverence of my love for you.

Oh Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to the world,
Hear me!
I come to you as one of your many children.
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom.
May I walk in beauty.
Make my eyes behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things that you have made,
And my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may know the things
That you have taught your children–
The lessons that you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
Make me strong, not to be superior to my brothers, but to be
able to fight my greatest enemy: myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes, so that
When life fades as the faded sunset
My spirit will come to you without shame.

What Are Ghosts?

What are ghosts? My own personal point of view, ghosts are disembodied entities that manifest in the physical world both thru physical and inner senses like clairvoyance and other means of communications like dreams, and electronic voice phenomena (EVP).

It appears that ghosts and hauntings are of several types but some experts simplified their classifications. I myself listed my own version of Ghost Types from several sources and based on my experience and other people’s accounts

1. Dead People: These are the spirits of the dead people that for some reason, trapped between the physical plane and the spirit realm as a result of tragedy or trauma. They can both appear as transparent or solid form. According to many ghosts hunters and psychics, these ghosts don’t know they are dead. Ghost hunter veteran Hans Holzer says, “A ghost is a human being who has passed out of the physical body, usually in a traumatic state and is not aware usually of his true condition. We are all spirits encased in a physical body. At the time of passing, our spirit body continues into the next dimension. A ghost, on the other hand, due to trauma, is stuck in our physical world and needs to be released to go on.” These ghosts can interact with the living because they usually aware of the physical world that’s why they are unaware that they are already dead.

2. Hauntings or Recordings: Experts say that some ghosts appear to be mere recordings on the environment or just a memory of an energy in a place they once existed. This would explain about ghost cars and trains that can still be heard and sometimes seen, even though they are long gone. They dont interact with the living and their appearance and actions are always the same especially at the last time they existed. They can also be called as residual or replay ghosts.

3. Messengers: These are the most comm0n ghosts because they usually appear shortly after their deaths to people close to them. They are aware of their deaths and can interact with the living. They most often bring messages of comfort to their loved ones, to say that they are well and happy, and not to grieve for them. These ghosts appear briefly and usually only once. It is as if they intentionally return with their messages for the express purpose of helping the living cope with their loss.

4. Poltergeists: These hauntings are considered to be violent because it has the greatest ability to affect the physical world. It is the most feared ghost because it can create noisy sound such as wall-banging, rapping, footsteps and even music. They can turn on faucets, slam doors, turn lights on and off, and also flush toilets and the worst of all, they throw things across rooms regardless of weight. They can hurt people such as slap, scratch, or cause any injury and considered by some investigators to be demonic in nature. These “noisy ghosts” are both caused by dead people at certain living people under emotional and mental stress.

5. Orbs: These are the most photograped ghosts. They appear as transparent or translucentballs of light hovering above the ground or they have a lingering trail indicating they are travelling at a fairly fast rate of speed at the time of picture was taken. Most ghost experts say that 85% of photographed orbs are created inadvertently by circumstances and weather conditions, but others would conclude that these are spiritual manifestations such as dead people, nature spirits and extraterrestrials. Some theories claim that an orb is the basic form of all ghostly phenomena, from this state they change into ecto-mist and then apparitions and they also emit electromagnetic fields.

6. Projections: This type of ghost could be the astral body of a living person or a mental projection thru remote viewing. I sometimes heard a testimony in a mind control seminar that the remote viewer was actually seen as ghost or physical form in a target place by people present in the area. It proves that the human mind is very powerful that the persons’ self can be projected at will in a particular place.

7. Vortex, Funnel Ghosts: This type of ghost can be attributed to spirits of the dead person, that usually appeared as swirling funnel shape. They can also appear in pictures as being long and narrow and having a tread design within their make up and readily confused with a speeding orb when they slow down and take on this straight and narrow look. They are often felt as cold spot that would mean it is an enegy of a dead person.

8. Shadow, Dark Ghosts: Feared ghosts because of its dark appearance. They usually appear as black shadows. These ghosts are considered to be sneaky and evasive, when spotted its usually out of the corner of the eye or as they are darting through wall. They usually move fast by wall and appear instantly and they often spotted in mirrors. Another dark shadow ghost appeared with red eyes. Experts say this is another entity that some researchers say might be an elemental or extraterrestrial.

9. Double Ghost (Doppleganger): This type of ghost causes confusion among the witnesses. A ghost that usually looks, walks, talks and appears to a family member or a friend of the person it looks like. It is called in german term doppleganger,which means “double goer”. There are many instances that people have even claimed to have seen their own double, while others were informed that their doubles instantly appeared in their house. It usually dont interact with the living but reported as being solid or transparent.

10. Mist, Fog, Cloudy Ghost: This is another manifestation of a dead person’s soul. It usually appears several feet off the ground and linger or travel quickly at will. It’s usual colors vary from gray to white, but has also been seen and photographed in several other colors. This ghost manifestation appears in all locations but most generally spotted outdoors and most particularly at cemeteries, battlefields & historical sites. It has been speculated that the spirit from this appearance will transform into a full-bodied apparition.

How to Communicate With Ghosts

People who have encountered ghosts keep asking how could they communicate with these disincarnate beings. I always tell them that ghosts can be communicated thru dreams, or if they are psychically developed person, they can communicate with the dead telepathically – mind to soul communication.

Though there are sensitive people we call them channels or medium that can communicate with the dead in an altered state of consciousness — in trance.

Other people communicate with the dead people thru Ouiajia Board or in the Philippines “the spirit of the glass”, but i would not advice anybody to do it without proper training of dealing with the earthbound souls, because evil forces could manifest.

The best that i could advice people who wants to know if their relatives are ok on the “other side” is just wait for them to “contact you” either thru dreams or other means of communication in the physical reality.

The article titled Communicating with Ghosts of Tina Carlson posted at http://www.utahghost.org/ would explain the basic approach of dealing with ghosts around us.

Communicating with Ghosts by Tina Carlson – Tarianna@theshadowlands.net

“A question thats often asked is “How Do I Talk to Ghost? I want to contact them.” I usually advise waiting until a ghost contacts you. There are several ways that a ghost will do this.

Through our dreams being one of the most common. When we are asleep our mind is open to many things that we may not consider possible while awake. Ghost communication is one of these. Many times a spirit will use this avenue as it is less frightening to us also. So if you dream of a past loved one with a peculiar message, they might actually be visiting you in your dreams. We have also received stories of ghosts using others means to communicate beyond our dreams.

Phone calls are becoming more common from the afterlife, sometimes without us even knowing the loved one has passed yet. These phone calls are generally short and to the point giving information, love and hope in times when we need it most.

There are many other ways that a ghost tries to communicate with the living from a feeling of not being alone, to messages being written, or words being whispered in the night.
The thing to keep in mind however is to try to be patient and wait for the ghost to contact you, which they will if they have a message for you, or you are involved in the reason they are still here and haven’t moved on to the next realm of existence.

If you feel a loved one is trying to communicate you and find you cannot wait please do not try to take matters in your own hands. Find an experienced and highly recommended psychic or medium to help you make contact.

It is never a good idea to use devises or rituals that manipulate ghosts such as Ouija Boards, seances, or automatic writing, all these procedures can be dangerous in untrained hands and can attract the attention of someone or something other than the loved one you are trying to contact.

Psychics, and mediums know the proper and safest ways to use these tools and can help you make the contact with the proper ghost in the huge world of the afterlife. If you feel the ghost is not a loved one but you still wish to find out who it may be or why, then please do research into your home or area to find out what events may have transpired to lead to who and why a ghost is still here.

Many times just checking with your local library or newspaper will give enough information to help you determine who may be haunting a particular area.

Above all if you feel you are involved with the reason a ghost is still here or they wish you to help them, they will let you know in their own time. The hardest thing to do sometimes is be patient while you wait for them to reveal their reasons to you.

Extraterrestrials in the Bible

Author John W. Milor in his article titled Angels, the Sons of God, and Their Offspring, the Nephilim posted at www.aliensinthebible.com believed that the evidence of alien presence on Earth is in the Bible.

He mentioned about the books in the Bible with corresponding chapters and verses that would show that ETs are working with early humans in this planet. Below the article of Milor.

1. The astounding power of angels:
When people think of angels, they usually think of powerful beings that are capable of doing things that require a body transcendent of the physical realm. The angels recorded in scripture are powerful beings indeed. One angel, for instance, defended Israel against the Assyrian army, single handedly destroying 185,000 Assyrian soldiers:

2 Kings 19:35
“35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. (Ha – they woke up dead!) “

This incident occurred following a dispute between Hezekiah, King of Judah, and the King of Assyria. I enjoy reading it, because the captain of the guard for Assyria boasts that no gods from any other nations that Assyria fought against helped them to prevail. God’s response to this, found in King Hezekiah’s prayer for help, (2 Kings 19:17-19), can be paraphrased as: “.but the God of Israel, IS-REAL.” This becomes weightily evident when reflecting on the mass destruction of the Assyrian army.

Aside from the mass destruction of armies and cities (Sodom and Gomorrah), angels are also noted for their ability to fly (Matthew 28:2, Revelation 14:6), teleport (Acts 5:19-23), deliver messages in person (or angel, if you will) and psychically in dreams (Luke 1:13, Matthew 1:20, Genesis 31:11)1. They can also bless people with healing (John 5:2-6), curse people with blindness (Genesis 19:1-3), muteness (Luke 1:20), and make people feint (Matthew 28:2). All of these powers indicate entities of a supernatural, spiritual nature. Furthermore, Psalms 104:1-4 and Ephesians 6:12 indicate that angels are indeed spiritual beings.

Psalms 104:1-4
“1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; . 4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire.”

Ephesians 6:10-13
“12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

2. Confusion with classifying angels:
Do these reference apply to all angels? Here is where some confusion may arise due to the liberal use of the term angel. Psalms 104:1-4 wasn’t necessarily stating that angels are strictly spiritual beings. Also, not all angels are enveloped in flaming fire. The angels in Ezekiel 1:4-14, for instance, were angels surrounded by flames of fire, but don’t even come close to the human appearance of the angels that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, among others, which were usually mistaken for being male humans.

Ezekiel 1:4-14
“4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. 8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. 9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. 11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. 12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.”

As for the spiritual beings mentioned in Ephesians 6:10-13, these are spiritual beings that Christian’s wrestle against. This distinguishes them as either fallen angels, or demons – (terms which are unique from each other, and I will define further in this book). Paul mentions them specifically as not having flesh and blood. I think there could be three possible explanations for this passage of scripture.

I don’t think it would be unreasonable to rephrase Paul’s statement as “.flesh and blood as we know it.” – because if fallen angels or demons have flesh and blood, it’s probably different from ours.

Also, it may very well be that some powerful, evil beings may not have any physical form, nor are able to assume any physical form. I classify disincarnate fallen angels into this category, which I will simply call demons. I derive this classification from the assumption that A. Angels are physical beings, B. Angels that sin are cursed with death, and C. Once physically dead, their spirits continue to exist.

Demon is a broad term I use to describe both deceased fallen angels, (non-corporeal), and their deceased aberrant hybrid progeny, such as the Nephilim, (which again, I will discuss shortly). Demons are always distinguished in scripture as beings that seek embodiment, while angels don’t. This denotes them as beings without physical bodies. They likewise aren’t able to assume physical form by their power. They need hosts.

A final interpretation of Ephesians 6:10-13 is that Paul was emphasizing that we, as Christian’s, aren’t struggling just against our own flesh and blood, but against evil, spiritual beings. If this is what Paul meant, then he wasn’t directly stating that the spiritual beings Christian’s wrestle against aren’t composed of flesh and blood. Just because these beings are spiritual, doesn’t meant that they aren’t physical either, or that they don’t have the ability to become physical. Humans, for instance, are spiritual beings, as well as physical.

In any case, there are other scriptures that indicate that angels aren’t strictly spiritual beings. The bottom line of Ephesians 6:10-13 is to be on your guard as a Christian, because there are evil spiritual beings everywhere, and Christians are in warfare against them, whether they like it or not. Christians must prepare for battle!

3. Are angels physical beings?
“As for the issue of angels being physical beings, the fact of the matter is, some angels can assume a physical form as we might define physical. It may even be the natural state of some of them. In scripture, we find angels performing many tasks that require physical bodies. For an example, examine the angels that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:1-3 that I just previously mentioned.”

Genesis 19:1-3
“1And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.”

In order to talk with Lot like a normal person, eat food, and grab and pull Lot’s arm on two occasions, (later in the same chapter), they had to be physical entities.

There are two extreme examples of angels performing activities that make it very difficult to refute their physical nature. The first example is when Jacob, patriarch of the Old Testament, even wrestled with an angel (Genesis 32:24-30, also referred to in Hosea 12:2-4).

Genesis 32:24-30
“24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. 25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. 29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. 30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”

Hosea 2:2-4
“2 The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him. 3 He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God: 4 Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed.
The other extreme example is found in Genesis chapter 6 and is also referred to in Jude 1:6, and 2 Peter 2:4. This second example will be the primary focus of this chapter.”

Genesis 6:1-13
“1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 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. 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. 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. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”

Jude 1:6
“6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

2 Peter 2:4-6
“4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
This example in Genesis 6 opens Pandora’s Box, and warrants an extended discussion. It refers to angels that sinned, inbreeding with humans! They not only had sex with human women, but bore offspring, which is an indication that they were physical by nature. It is possible that the Sons of God are angels that assumed physical form, and were able to mate – I won’t rule this out. I just think it’s more likely that they are physical by nature, and I will explain why before this
chapter is through.”

Here again, we see a distinction. The word angel denotes that there are different types of angels that could be spoken of. In this instance, it should be assumed that humans weren’t mating with 4 headed, 6 winged Seraphim angels, that are described by Ezekiel as having eyes everywhere, and are surrounded by balls of fire and bolts of lighting. (Any attempt would probably result in death!) The angels that sinned, mating with humans, were obviously humanoid, and genetically very closely related to earth humans, because they were capable of producing offspring with them.

Why would angels go through all the trouble to assume a temporary physical form capable of the vast complex ability of reproduction that could result in offspring? Assuming temporary physical forms that could perform rudimentary tasks is one thing; androids could do such. But reproduction is far more complex than eating, talking, and making physical contact with people. Reproduction is serious – biological physical contact!

3.1 The Sethite theory:
Many theologians of relatively recent times have had great difficulty in accepting the possibility that an angel can mate with a human being, and bear offspring. (Strange that the secular media would accept it, while theologians generally scoff at it. In movies such a Michael, and City of Angels – this phenomenon is portrayed, yet sadly it’s cast in a deceptive light. Both these moves glorify this satanic activity).

Following is an excerpt taken from my NIV Study Bible commentary notes concerning Genesis chapter 6:
“The “Sons of God” has been interpreted here (Genesis 6) to refer either to angels or to human beings. In such places as Job 1:6, 2:1, it refers to angels, and perhaps also in Psalms 29:1 (where it’s translated “mighty ones”). Some interpreters also appeal to Jude 1:6-7 (as well as to Jewish literature) in referring the phrase here to angels.

Others, however, maintain that intermarriage and cohabitation between angels and human beings, though commonly mentioned in ancient mythologies, are surely excluded by the very nature of the created order (Mark 12:25). Elsewhere, expressions equivalent to “Sons of God” often refer to human beings, though in contexts quite different from the present one (see Deuteronomy 14:1, 32:5; Psalms 73:15; Isaiah 43:6; Hosea 1:10, 11:1; Luke 3:38; 1 John 3:1-2, 10.) Sons of God, possibly refers to godly men, and “Daughters of men” to sinful women (significantly, they are not called “Daughters of God”, probably from the wicked line of Cain. If so, the context suggests that Genesis 6:1-2 describe the intermarriage of the Sethites (“Sons of God”) of Genesis chapter 5 with the Cainites (“Daughters of men”) of Genesis chapter 4, indicating a breakdown in the separation of the two groups.

Another plausible suggestion is that the “Sons of God” refers to royal figures (Kings were closely associated with gods in the ancient Near East) who proudly perpetuated and aggravated the corrupt life-style of Lamech son of Cain (virtually a royal figure) and established for themselves royal harems.”2

If the Sons of God in Genesis 6 are not angels, then it’s easier for most people to accept, but the argument in favor of the Sons of God being angels is more credible in my opinion. Most biblical evidence, I have discovered, points to the Sons of God in Genesis 6 being angels.

3.2 The Sons of God – angels:
Indeed, even though the context of the phrase Sons of God as mentioned in Genesis and Job indicates angels, many have considered this possibility far fetched, because it’s too weird of an interpretation. There are also some apparent conflicts. Can angels have sex?!? To say “No” seems to contradict Genesis 6. To say “Yes” seems to contradict Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-46 (Angels don’t marry, nor are given in marriage).

Does the Sethite theory resolve this contradiction? No, instead, it raises more problems than it attempts to resolve.

As previously mentioned, the Sethite theory suggests that descendents from the godly line of Seth, (third son of Adam), mated with descendents from the wicked line of Cain. Does this explain why their offspring were Nephilim (giants), genetic monstrosities of nature? No, it doesn’t. Now if one were to ardently hold to the Sethite theory, it could be expounded upon to suggest that the Nephilim (giants) were aberrations because they were the products of offspring between glorified humans of the line of Seth, and sinful, less-glorified humans of the line of Cain. So the origin of giants might be explained as an anomaly created by differences in glory, but now on to argument number two.

The Sons of God are sinning heavily in mating with the daughters of men, in so much that they were cast down and imprisoned in darkness and awaiting judgement. Scripture doesn’t state that they were committing adultery, or fornicating outside the confines of marriage. Why was it such a sin for descendents of the line of Seth to intermarry with descendents of the line of Cain? Nowhere in scripture is any such sanction imposed upon the line of Seth. God declared that Israelites shouldn’t intermarry with non-Israelites, and this was mentioned several places in scripture, because of its vast importance in Israel’s commitment to God. If this distinction was made for the Israelites, and was emphasized so many times in scripture, why would a similar sanction on the line of Seth be completely absent from scripture?

Going further, why would the children of such a godly line, the line of Seth, be inherently evil, as were these giants, the Nephilim? One would think that something better would come of the offspring of the glorified Sons of God, at least by random chance. After all, at least one parent was from a glorified line. Why were all their progeny evil?

Saving the best argument for last, I’ve discovered that it’s basically impossible for the Sethite theory to be true, because of a logical error. In the flood of Noah, according to the Sethite theory, all the Cainites were killed. This can be assumed for two reasons. First of all, God blessed Noah and his children in Genesis 9:1.

Genesis 9:1
“1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”

If Noah, Shem, Ham, or Japeth, had any wife descending from the line of Cain – holding to the Sethite theory – they would’ve been cursed by God, not blessed! (Note that the Sons of God that sinned were cast down into hell and awaiting judgement (Jude 1:1-6, 2 Peter 2:4-6)).
Secondly, from the direct descendents of Noah’s three sons, no Nephilim (giants) are ever mentioned in his lineage – until after many generations. God had no intention of continuing the existence of evil giants in the earth. He wanted the earth to begin with a blessing – refreshed, pure, and holy. Where were these giants coming from, if not from Noah’s family?

If God purified the earth, and all the descendents from the line of Cain were destroyed in the flood of Noah, then how did the Nephilim get back into the earth after the flood? For Genesis 6:4 clearly states that the Sons of God continued mating with the daughters of men, and bearing offspring that were giants, even after the flood. It should therefore become apparent that the Sethite theory is impossible, because Sethites couldn’t have been mating with Cainites, if there were no Cainites!

With all these strikes against the Sethite theory, I find the explanation of the Sons of God being angels to be much more plausible than their being glorified descendents from the line of Seth.
But if the Sons of God were angels, the question still remains: How could it be, that angels can have sex?!? I will answer this question, but before I do, I will first provide more evidence in support of the Sons of God being angels.

Evidence supporting that the angels that sinned were physical by nature – and were in fact angels – can be uncovered by analyzing their offspring, the “Nephilim”, also referred to as “Rapha”, or “Rephaim”, which were giants. References to these half-breeds are found in scripture wherever the word giant appears. (Nephilim: Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33; Rapha, also translated Rephaim: Deuteronomy 2:11, 2:20, 3:11, 3:13; Joshua 12:4, 13:12, 15:8, 17:15, 18:16; 2 Samuel 21:16, 21:18, 21:20, 21:22; and 1 Chronicles 20:4, 20:6, and 20:8).

Why weren’t these offspring normal humans? This can be attributed to two factors. First of all, their parents might be genetically different species of humanoids, i.e., like the slight difference between a horse and a donkey – which when mated together, produce the mutated sterile offspring of mules. Goliath, for instance, the well famed giant smote by King David, was not only a giant, but was also noted as having six fingers on both hands, and six toes on both feet (2 Samuel 21:20). Does this not sound like a genetic mutation anomaly?

Secondly, the level of glory of the angels that sinned sexually with humans was higher than humanities, which might be responsible for supernatural anomalies. Consider that scripture states there were legends concerning these entities. The offspring of the gods, (i.e., found in Greek mythos, and Indian (Vedas), Native American (Anazasi, Hopi, Navajo), and Chinese records) 3, were often reported to have supernatural powers, which is probably why they were legendary, and even worshiped in some cases.

Personally, I believe these genetic monstrosities were a combination of both genetic, and glorified differences between the angels that sinned, and the humans of earth. Concerning their power and dominance, I think they were genetically designed to conquer the world. The Sons of God may have genetically manipulated themselves in experiments to plan out their offspring to have the most dominant, powerful traits as possible. I will return to this theme after providing more background information.

Before I delve into Genesis 6 any further, I would like to point out the fact that I’ve crossed two definitional boundaries. The first boundary I crossed was with Jacob, and his wrestling match with an angel. Genesis calls this entity a “Man”, but Hosea refers to the entity that wrestled with Jacob as an angel. As for Jacob himself, he thought the Man was God. Exactly who was this mysterious figure? He may have been one of the race of humanoid angels I’ve been discussing – (Sons of God), but not a sinful one, obviously. He was the one that dubbed Jacob – Israel. In reality, nobody really knows who He was, and He didn’t want anyone to know either, because He refused to tell Jacob what His name was. With all this put before us, the liberal definition of angel is sufficient, because we know that this entity was not merely a man, judging from the supernatural power he exhibited, and that he had the authority to rename Jacob to Israel. I suspect he was the pre-incarnate Jesus, because it has always been his characteristic to rename His chosen, but that’s just my own opinion.

Also, the second definitional boundary I crossed was the Sons of God. As I have already argued, the Sons of God can be interpreted as angels in several passages of scripture. Again, these are angelic beings that are described, and sometimes even mistaken for being male humans.

3.3 The link between the flood, and Sodom and Gomorrah:
If the connection is made that the Sons of God that mated with humans were in fact angels, then it should be clear that both the references in Jude and Peter I previously alluded to were concerning these Sons of God that sinned.

When reading these two passages of scripture – Jude 1:6-7, and 2 Peter 2:4 – both references are linked with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Jude mentions that the Sodomites gave themselves over to strange flesh. This term, in Greek: “heteros”, {ajlloiovw}, is translated as “Other”.4 Is this not revealing? Going further into this event, let’s now look at why Sodom and Gomorrah are specifically linked to these angels that sinned, spoken of by Peter, and Jude. In Genesis, let me pull out two passages of scripture for analysis.

Genesis 18:20-22
“20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. 22 And the men (angels) turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
Genesis 19:4-9
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know (uh. my paraphrase – have sex with) them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.”

So what we find here is that Sodom and Gomorrah are so incredibly evil, God can’t stand it anymore. Is this really the case? God personally sends his two angels to destroy it. Why? When I look at the cities of today, like Los Angeles, and New York, I wonder why God hasn’t obliterated them yet. The cities of today are full of wretched evil. Exactly what were Sodom and Gomorrah doing that was any worse than what we have today?

Delving deeper, what did God mean when He said, “I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it.”? Dropping down to Genesis 19:4-9, we find just exactly what God was expecting. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah saw two angels enter the city, and were so enthralled with wanting to rape them, they didn’t even care about Lot’s virgin daughters he offered them in exchange! (It could be – conjecture here – just as found in Greek mythology, mating with these beings was possibly pleasurable beyond what we know sex to be.)
This sexual immorality is possibly what God was expecting – and this is why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Sodom and Gomorrah were a haven of sexual immorality, even that between fallen-angels and humans.

3.4 Why Noah?
The sexual immorality found in Sodom and Gomorrah is the same as that found in Genesis 6, and was probably what spawned the flood of Noah. When God destroyed the entire world in the flood of Noah, it was because of the angels that sinned. When the Sons of God started mating with the daughters of men at that time, afterwards the earth was filled with evil giants. These corrupt beings dominated the planet, and were the reason that God was sorry He ever made man.

But scripture states that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, and that Noah was just and walked with God, and was perfect in his generations. The grace that Noah found in the eyes of the Lord, I think, is speaking about Noah’s perception of the eyes of God. As for being just, and walking with God – well, Noah was a pretty great guy! But what does perfect in his generations refer to? The word “Perfect”, translates to “tamiym”{!ymiT;}}, which means “Without Blemish”. 5, 6 Noah, genetically speaking, was a pure-strain human, not some half-breed superhero giant.

Genesis 6:8-9
“8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”

What I think was really was going on in these days was Satan’s plan of attack to prevent the birth of the Messiah. Jesus couldn’t have been born from a corrupt line of fallen angels. Jesus had to be born the Son of Man, and the Only Begotten Son of God. So to prevent Satan from corrupting the entire human race, God completely annihilated the whole world, because at that time, most of the entire human genetic structure, with the exception of Noah’s family, was polluted. Then, after the flood of Noah, God promised He would never destroy the world again. Note: He never promised He wouldn’t destroy any cities. Genesis 6:4 mentions that the Sons of God mating with humans didn’t end after the flood. The brief mention of “.in those days; and also after that”, refers to the fact that the fallen angels, the Sons of God, continued to sin with the daughters of men, and with men in cases of homosexuality, as found in Sodom and Gomorrah, even after the flood.”

God feels the same way now about this sin, as He did back then. Incidents after the flood continued to crop up, because a few races of giants are spoken of in scripture as existing in the world after the flood. They certainly weren’t the dominant force in the world the way they used to be. I think the reason why is because God dealt with the Nephilim, and the fallen angels mating with humans that produced them – like a disease. When incidents increased in particular areas, such as Sodom and Gomorrah, God stepped in and immediately exterminated them. Sodom and Gomorrah probably weren’t the only places God dealt His wrath in this manner either, because Jude 1:7 mentions that there were other cities – “7Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner.”

3.5 Alien abductions in prophesy:
This information about the Sons of God is very important, prophetically speaking? Why? Because these things are still going on today! Both Matthew 24:37, and Luke 17:26-30 quote Jesus as stating that the end times will be a return to the days of Noah. What typified the days of Noah? Fallen angels inbreeding with humans. Luke 17:26-30 especially points to this conclusion, because again, not only the days of Noah are mentioned, but Sodom and Gomorrah are mentioned as well.

Matthew 24:37
“37 But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17:26-30
26 And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

To briefly recap: Satan’s initial plan of attack was to pollute the seed of humanity, and prevent the birth of Christ. While doing so, He had his minions genetically develop a means of producing a master race of warriors; chaotic, and utterly evil. These beings would be capable, by brute force, of taking any women they chose, (which scripture indicates that they took any they chose), and killing all who would defy them. This plan almost worked for Satan, but then God had to come and mess everything up for him. (Thank God!)

Quickly after the flood, Satan began his plan again, but it just wasn’t working as good as it did before. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, (and possibly other cities as well), then sent in Israel to destroy the rest of these giants, empowering his chosen humans, the Israelites, with His divine, supernatural power. Basically, these giants were wiped out.

Did Satan quit? Of course not! I think this is why most of the alien abductions going on these days deal with reproductive experiments. Anyone familiar with the field of genetics should be aware of the fact that a primary portion of this type of research involves many aspects of reproduction. Certainly, the gray bug-eyed creatures frequently reported to abduct people don’t want sperm and egg samples as desktop souvenirs. I likewise don’t imagine that the aliens that collect these samples are simply participating in some bizarre ritual relative to cow-tipping in Wisconsin. (Sounds like a Far-Side comic of a couple of aliens wearing T-shirts saying “Earth 2000, I was there”, and pictured underneath the words are a couple of terrified humans having their. uh, let’s not go there.)

Anyway, these alien beings are obviously working on something other than giants. I think – they are working on several things. First of all, they would like to produce a human of superior intellect, and possibly supernatural power. Secondly, I think they are experimenting with cybernetics, trying to integrate the human consciousness into computer chips. (Imagine how attracted humanity would be to such technology?) Successive chapters in this book will elaborate upon these theories, so don’t worry. I’m not just throwing out these ideas, and leaving them sit there without any follow up.

I don’t think these gray bug-eyed alien abductors we see shows on TV about are the Sons of God. I believe the Sons of God are humanoid. But the gray creatures may be particularly knowledgeable in the field of genetics, and that’s why they are assigned to the task of genetic experimentation. (They were probably the ones that developed the means to produce giants.) They are most likely helping the Sons of God, because one among the Sons of God is a great leader among many of them, and many other species throughout all existence. In fact, he is a leader of a whopping one third the Hosts of Heaven! Uh, oops, getting ahead of myself.

Sorry. Concerning aliens in prophesy, best selling author Hal Lindsey believes as I do, that they have ties with the demonic. While his interpretation of the UFO/alien phenomenon is that aliens are simply earth-bound demons posing as entities from other worlds, he does believe that the UFO/alien phenomenon will play a part in the end-times scenario. He mentions several key relevant passages of scripture indicating this.

I highly recommend his work, for anyone interested in prophesy. 7 Chapter 4 of his book Planet Earth – 2000 A.D., is especially relevant to this chapter, the only exception being that his definition of aliens is different than mine.

All of this information I’ve given on the Sons of God appears to fit with scripture so far, but there is one very big detail I have still yet to answer. Saying that the Sons of God are angels, and did mate with humans, poses some apparent contradictions, because of Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36.

Matthew 22:30
“30 For in the resurrection they (people) neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”

Mark 12:25
“25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”

Luke 20:34-36.
“34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.”

3.6 Marriage and sex among angels:
Now that all the evidence has been submitted supporting the theory that the Sons of God in Genesis 6 were angels, I will finally get to the question concerning angels and sex. How is this? Is there sex among angels? Please pardon me while I take this detour. I’m still answering the question that some angels might be physical by nature.

I find it necessary to take this detour though, because it’s necessary in order to span the full scope of defining the entities spoken of in the Bible. Jesus said that angels don’t marry, nor are they given in marriage (Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-46). If this is so, then how could the Sons of God, angels, be having sexual relations with the daughters of men?

It should be noted that while Jesus states in Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36, that we will be like the angels, which neither marry, nor are given in marriage, He doesn’t say that it’s impossible for angels to have sex. But to say that angels can have sex, and yet no marriage, means that sex would have to take place outside the confines of marriage. Again, we have another apparent contradiction. Sex outside the confines of marriage is defined as sinful in scripture in MANY places: (Acts 15:20, 15:29, 21:25; Romans 1:29; 1 Corinthians 6:13, 6:18; Galatians 5:18; and Ephesians 5:3, just to mention a few).

When referencing these scriptures, it’s important to realize that in none of them does it indicate that sexual relations outside the confines of marriage is acceptable by any means. Sex outside of marriage is a moral absolute, and isn’t okay if it’s safe (fallacy) and prevents the spread of disease, or even if the two people love each other, or to protect the institution of family for the children’s sake, etc. Disease, jealousy and emotional problems, and broken families are often the results of fornication, but are never indicated to be the reason God declares fornication sin. As for homosexuality, this is singled out as being an abomination (Romans 1:26-32; Leviticus 20:13), and fully despised of God.

So are we stuck? How can sex exist among angels, without the institution of marriage to confine it? Mormon theology sort of finds a way around Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36. Mormons interpret these scriptures to mean that all the marrying is done here on earth, but the marriage contract extends into heaven, because Matthew 16:19 states that “Whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.” Therefore, the act of getting married doesn’t occur in heaven, but the actual institution of marriage does. Mormons also use Ecclesiastes 3:14 to support the eternal nature of the marriage contract, which states that:

Ecclesiastes 3:14
“14 Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever.”

On the surface, this appears to be a sound argument to support the existence of the institution of marriage in heaven. When put to the test though, it doesn’t hold water. The Mormon interpretation of Matthew 22:30 violates one of the primary laws of hermeneutics (literary standard by which scripture should be interpreted), which states that scripture should be interpreted within its context. To get an accurate assessment of Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36, one needs to back up and read the passages that precede them. I’ll just take Matthew 22:23-29 for my example. This passage consists of the question that prompted Jesus’ answer – which is Matthew 22:30. (What good is an answer if one doesn’t know what the question is?) Jesus was presented with the example of a woman who had married seven brothers, each dying successively one after the other. When she reached heaven, who was she really married to? Jesus answered saying that we will be like the angels – not marrying, nor given in marriage. If the marriage contract were still valid, Jesus would’ve had to state which brother she would be married to, but He specifically didn’t!

If the Mormon view of marriage holds true, I would thus present the same question. Exactly who would such a woman be married to, as if Jesus’ answer wasn’t good enough?

Since Mormons believe in polygamy, (or do they still?), the Mormon answer might very well be “All!” Trying not to get off the subject too much, (though it appears I already have), but now we have a new question. Is polygamy acceptable to God, and if so, will it exist in heaven? Sure, why not? – NOT! The answer is “No” to both questions.

The question of whether or not polygamy is sinful is actually a little harder to answer than most people might think. I mean, sure, it’s easy for most people to say that it’s wrong – in American society, it’s considered wrong – by most anyway. The way things are going. But does that make polygamy a culturally relative sin? After all, some of the greatest patriarchs of the Old Testament were polygamists. Does this mean that polygamy is acceptable? Again, I must reiterate, absolutely not! But because of the integrity of the Old Testament patriarchs, I’m compelled to elaborate on exactly why polygamy is a sin. (As for culturally relative sin – God is ethnocentric by anthropological standards, so I really don’t have any qualms saying that there is no such thing as cultural relativism when dealing with moral absolutes.)

Let me begin with the sin of adultery. This is one of the Ten Commandments that everyone is familiar with – so we can all begin on the same sheet of music. What exactly is adultery? Answer: Adultery is when a married person has sex with someone other than his/her marriage partner, (with the exception of rape – where choice may not be an option on the victim’s behalf). If polygamy is not a sin, then one could justifiably marry anyone he/she desired to have sex with, thus escape the sin of adultery. Taking this a step further, one could expand polygamy to large groups of people, who after getting married to each other, could thus subject themselves to orgies. If polygamy isn’t a sin, then this wouldn’t be considered sinful.

Let’s just say that the entire United States of America institutes a polygamy campaign, marrying people numbering in the thousands, so that in a matter of a few years, all the people in the entire United States are married to each other. (Sounds like the goal of the 1960′s free-love movement). In order to identify someone you were married to, you would be issued a U.S. citizenship marriage campaign card.

In this scenario, you could have sex with anyone at any time, and it wouldn’t be committing fornication, or adultery, because whoever you were having sex with, (with the exception of homosexuality), would be your marriage partner. Technically, this wouldn’t be considered sin. All that would have to transpire is for each individual to flash their U.S. citizenship marriage campaign card, (among other things), then everything would be holy and sanctified under God.
Given this scenario, as absurd as it is, exactly what meaning does marriage have at this point? Absolutely none. Therefore, if polygamy is not considered a sin, then marriage and the sin of adultery mean nothing. Since God is the originator of marriage, then marriage certainly has meaning, and polygamy is obviously man’s way of trying to circumvent his sin through his own works. “I won’t commit adultery – I’ll just marry 1000 women” thought King Solomon. How absurd.

Now that you’ve tasted the logical argument against polygamy, let’s take a moment to look at the examples of polygamy we find in scripture. Whenever the intricate details of polygamous relationships were chronicled, there were always numerous problems. Abraham, Jacob, King David, and King Solomon all lived in polygamous relationships. All paid heavily for it. In Abraham and Jacob’s lives, there was always bitter resentment, partiality, extreme jealousy (go figure), grief and discontentment – everyone paid the price. With King David, his plan to put Uriah the Hittite on the front lines of battle to be killed, so he (David) could have Bathsheba as another wife, ended in a tragedy that resulted in the death of one of his children, and plagued him for the rest of his life. As for King Solomon, he suffered the worst fate of all; deception into idolatry because his wives deceived him away from the Lord.

Aside from the logical arguments disclosing polygamy as sin, and the living examples, the Lord commands the men of Israel not to undertake the practice of polygamy in Deuteronomy 17:17

Deuteronomy 17:17
“17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away.”

From all of the aforementioned, it should be clear that polygamy is sin. But for the sake of thoroughness, I don’t want to forget about the other passage of scripture I mentioned that Mormon’s use to support the so-called eternal nature of the marriage contract. Ecclesiastes 3:14 gives us the following:

Ecclesiastes 3:14
“14 Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever.”

This is one of those cryptic passages of scripture that makes me scratch my head. But after scratching my head for a moment, I recall Matthew 24:35.

Matthew 24:35
“35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”

Revelation 21:1 refers to the same event spoken of in Matthew 24:35, that heaven and earth will pass away, giving way to a new heaven, and a new earth.

Revelation 21:1
“1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

From what can be seen, it appears that Ecclesiastes 3:14 is contradicting Matthew 24:35, and Revelation 21:1, because Ecclesiastes 3:14 is stating that what God does lasts forever, while the other two scriptures state that the vast existence of heaven and earth will pass away. Since the Bible never contradicts itself, there must be an explanation other than contradiction.

I think this perceived contradiction can be eliminated by dissecting the term “forever”. What is forever, anyway? From scripture, it is given that God is an eternal being, without beginning, or end. Knowing this, it can be accurately assessed that God is outside the space-time domain altogether. From God’s perspective, all things that ever were, are, or ever will be, can be thought of as continuously present, for He is omniscient, and omnipresent. Therefore if “God doeth” something, from His perspective, it “.shall be done forever”, because for God, all things are forever present. So, getting back to the marriage contract, to us, our marriage contract may appear from the perspective of linear time to have a distinct beginning and end. To God though, the time frame in which that marriage contract existed will exist forever.

This is the best I can do concerning this passage of scripture, because I know the Bible doesn’t contradict itself. This interpretation of forever doesn’t apply to just anything. The eternal nature of God, Heaven, Hell, and spirits, for instance, literally exist for eternity – not just from God’s perspective, because there are mountains of scripture to support their eternal nature.

Ecclesiastes 3:14 is just one passage of scripture, and in order not to contradict other scripture, it needs a fitting interpretation that complements other scripture. The interpretation I have just given does just that. But aside from all this, it should be clear that when Mormons apply
Ecclesiastes 3:14 to the marriage contract, they are clearly taking it out of context.

Now that all of the above about marriage and sex among angels has been discussed, it should be evident that the angels in heaven don’t have sex, and aren’t married, nor will we people have sex or marry, once resurrected and translated into heaven. (Note: there is no sex bound with marriage in the highest heaven – but in the New Jerusalem, which is the 2nd heaven, there probably is, because Isaiah mentions that there will be children there). Have I gotten anywhere, or have I just wandered off the subject? Yes.

In summation, some angels came to earth and had sex with humans and bore offspring, but they weren’t supposed to, and this was a sin for them to do. This is obvious, judging from the fact that they were chained in darkness in the depths of hell.

Angels aren’t supposed to have sex, but this doesn’t rule out the fact that they are capable of it. This is still a confusing concept, because to conclude that they are able to have sex and reproduce, but shouldn’t, doesn’t make sense! I have another theory. Wipe the sweat off your brow, and brace yourself!

3.7 Why can angels sexually reproduce, but shouldn’t? The Butterfly theory:
I mentioned earlier that I thought it would be unlikely that the Sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6 would be capable of having sex and baring offspring, if they weren’t explicitly designed to do so. I have a theory that may suggest a possible explanation to this. I call it my “Butterfly” theory. Humans were designed by God to be transformed, like a butterfly, into a new nature.
Remember when Adam and Eve were first created in the Garden of Eden? At this time in human history, earth was in heaven, and humans were in open contact with God, communicating directly face to face with Him. (I will elaborate on the different realms of heaven in chapter 9 of this book.)

Adam and Eve were glorified beings (not translated – there is a distinction), and they were married and had sex with each other. (At this time, there was sex in heaven – but Adam and Eve weren’t angels, and they were married, so it was holy and sanctioned by God.) The first appearances of the marriage contract are found in Genesis 2:21-25, and Genesis 3:16, and are expounded upon greatly in scripture in other books, from this point on.

Genesis 2:21-25
“21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

Genesis 3:16
“.and thy (Eve’s) desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

With this fresh in our minds, we should now recall that the institution of marriage will be done away with, and with it, sex, because of what is stated in Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36. From this, one could logically assume that the human race was initially designed to sexually reproduce within the confines of marriage, until reaching a certain point. Once this certain level of development is achieved, the human race will then be translated by God into a higher species, in which reproduction will no longer serve a function.

After translation, it may be probable that appendages testifying to humanities former nature might still exist. (We might still have our sexual organs when we’re translated). But these appendages – (not really appendages when speaking of the female gender), will only serve as reminders of our former nature. They may eventually disappear over time – or perhaps in future translations. One thing is for sure, they won’t be intended for use! Why? Because there is no marriage in heaven, and without marriage, there is no sexual union.

To be honest, this concerned me when I came to this conclusion, but I console myself with the nature of God. I’m hopeful that God will relieve us from the burning desires of our bodies of flesh. It would be tough to have to deal with the desire of wanting sex, but being denied that desire – for eternity! But the only reason we have a desire to copulate is to serve God’s first command to Adam and Eve as a couple, in Genesis 1:28, and that was “.to multiply and be fruitful.” Since sexual reproduction will no longer be a part of our nature, I’m certain God will also remove our sex drive, which He installed to bless, and help ensure His command in Genesis 1:28. As for why He won’t remove our sexual organs, perhaps He will leave them as conversation pieces? Ha! Actually, I don’t really have any explanation for the existence of these physical attributes that may exist for a period of time, but, in nature, there do appear to be similar examples of this somewhat strange phenomenon; i.e. useless physical body parts. I will elaborate more on these in the chapter on evolution.

So with all that I’ve stated, it should be apparent that humans were designed to develop and reproduce for a while, then God will translate them into a higher species. Humans began as beings lower than the angels, even when they were glorified – and hadn’t sinned yet, as verified in Hebrews 2:5-9, and Psalms 8:3

Hebrews 2:5-9
“5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”

Psalm 8:3
“4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:”

Currently, humans aren’t classified as angels. Humans are lower than the angels, and therefore can’t be considered to be angels. But once translated, humans will be equal with the angels. Not only that, humans will even be the judge over some angels.

Luke 20:34-35
“34 And Jesus answering said unto them, … The children of this world . which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead . 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels;”

1 Corinthians 6:3
“3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels?”

The original question is: Are angels strictly spiritual beings? Now, a definite “No” can be fully established, and additional information which helps provide an understanding as to why it is possible for some angels to have sex, but shouldn’t, is also fully disclosed. After the resurrection, humans will resemble the nature of the translated humans we see in Genesis 6, which are referred to as angels in Jude and 2 Peter. After we, (humans that survive the resurrection), are translated, it wouldn’t be incorrect to call us angels, because at this point, humans will be equal with the angels, and even judging some of them. We will be beings of translated flesh, and fully capable (key word – capable), of reproduction because that was once our function. Furthermore, we will be able to bare offspring – but this offspring would be an abomination, because they would have been born though sin, and utter rebellion against God, and against humanities new translated nature. So now, it should be clearly evident that the Sons of God were capable of having sex, and offspring, but it was something terribly wrong for them to do. They were angels, and turned against the direction that God had glorified them. They turned back to their former state, turning their backs on God. The term “Sons of God”, I believe is a term that can be applied to translated humans. It’s for this reason that it’s sometimes used for Christian humans – pointing to their future state of glory. It’s also used for angels – which may be glorified, translated humans from other worlds. Whether or not the future translated humans of earth, and those we’ve encountered from heavenly realms in our past, are exactly the same species remains unknown.

One factor that distinguishes the humans of earth from humans originating elsewhere is the fact that God decided to make the humans from earth – from earth’s soil, instead of through the same line as the humanoid angelic beings coming from elsewhere. This alone distinguishes earthling humans from others, whereas other species of humans coming from other worlds were probably created from the soil of their original habitations. In any case, if earthling humans aren’t exactly the same as humans from other worlds, they are probably very similar. I say this, because there are many descriptions in scripture where the terms men and angels, referring to the Sons of God, are used interchangeably. Furthermore, earth humans were actually able to interbreed with these other humans from elsewhere, with tangible, (yet diluted and cursed), results. It is for this reason that I classify the species of angel termed the Sons of God, humanoid.

4. What kind of angel is Satan?
Is this all I have to say about the Sons of God? Not quite. For the most part, if humanity encounters an alien species dwelling in the universe in open contact, (i.e., in public eye), and they are humans, this probably means bad news! Why?

First of all, true angels of God always give glory to God, and never desire to direct attention to themselves. God’s faithful angels have been discreet in their appearances throughout the dawn of mankind, appearing to only select individuals of God’s choosing, and only for very brief encounters. There are some exceptions to this general rule. God’s dealings with Egypt weren’t discrete, but were clearly demonstrations of God’s will and power. But it should be noted that grand displays such as those in ancient Egypt are highly uncommon, and aren’t God’s usual methods of using angels. In any case, angels establishing open contact with humanity before Christ sets up His kingdom on earth doesn’t sound like the will of God. People get to heaven through Jesus, not angels.

It’s obvious from Genesis 6 that the Sons of God deliberately turned against God, and even their own nature which God had made them to be, mating with humans and producing children that were giants. Even the terms used to describe their offspring, indicate the nature of the sin involved.

The term “Nephilim”, which means giants, is derived from the primitive root word “Naphal” {naw-fal’} {lp’n:} }}}}}}, which has such meanings as fall down, cast down, and fall away.8, 9 As for the other term referring to giants, “Rapha” {raw-faw’} { !yaip;r]}, or “Raphah” {raw-faw’} {!yaip;r]}, it is the exact same word used for ghosts of the dead, shades, and spirits. So even the meanings of the words used to describe their offspring indicates that they were descendents of fallen angels, and thus were satanic entities by nature.

Seeing that the Sons of God are humanoid angelic beings – and that they are fallen angels at that, (those in Genesis 6), should be reason enough not to trust them. But when I read in Job 1:6, and 2:1, that they’re hanging out with Satan when Satan was requesting permission from God to tear Job’s life apart, I get a very bad feeling in my stomach.

Job 1:6-11
“6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.”

Job 2:1
“1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 2 And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 3 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause. 4 And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. 5 But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.”

Perhaps I got this backwards. Instead of the Sons of God hanging out with Satan, don’t these passages of scripture indicate that Satan – is hanging out with them? These passages of scripture reveal that there is a regularly appointed audience between God and the Sons of God, and Satan is among the Sons of God. Now why might Satan be among them, these humanoid angelic beings, specifically? Why, why, why? Could it be that this is the type of angel Satan is?

Consider Isaiah 14:12-15 as an opener to this query. Doesn’t it appear that Lucifer is in essence, called a man?

Isaiah 14:12-15
“12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;”

Please understand that I’m only entertaining a possibility. I would like to emphatically remind all readers that it’s merely my opinion that there is, in fact, a race of humanoid angels that came about as humans will one day be. This is merely my own conclusion. Keeping this in mind, simply read along with my conjecture, if not for any other reason than the mere curiosity of wondering what I’m going to say next.

Why does Satan show such a despising interest in Job in the previously discussed passages? In fact, why did Satan come to earth in person to deceive Eve, instead of appointing one of his lesser, underling followers to do it? My answer to this question is simple. Because Satan is probably a human that was translated; an angelic member of the species termed “Sons of God”, and once was a ruler on a prior world – or many worlds. (See the last section of chapter 9 for more information on this).

When Adam and Eve were created, Satan was filled with jealous pride, hating God for creating new additions to the kind of angels termed “Sons of God”. Enraged, threatened, and jealous, he personally has set out on a mission to destroy humanity on earth in any way he can.

There seems to be evidence that Satan is intimately linked with earth, in particular. Why is this? Why was Satan allowed access into the Garden of Eden? Was he not fallen and cast out of heaven, yet at that time, earth was in heaven? Why is it that when God cast him out of heaven, He flung him down to earth, of all places? (When I read this, I used to think to myself – “Well gee! Couldn’t he be thrown out to the sun, or in a black hole or something? Why earth!”)

From Revelation 1:16-20, we see that some of God’s faithful angels are assigned positions of authority over churches, and in Daniel 10:12-14, we see that other angels, even those that have fallen and became evil, are still allowed to retain their authority in certain areas of the earth. (Daniel 10:12-14 refers to the Prince of Darkness ruling over Persia, which hindered the archangel Gabriel in his mission to deliver God’s message to Daniel.)

What about Satan? According to 2 Corinthians 4:4, Satan’s power over the earth is such that he is termed god of this world, (small “g”, thank you very much. He’s only called this to denote his power and influence). All three of the above references are indications that powerful entities both good and evil, retain positions of authority over the affairs of the humans of earth – for a limited time. Satan’s role with humanity appears to bear a unique relationship though, because he was specifically cast out of heaven and down to earth, where his judgement will be met through the battle of Armageddon, and ending with his last uprising after the millennial reign.
Further defining Satan’s link with humanity is the fact that his defeat was through God becoming human, and crushing him altogether.

Is any of this really that important? Would it really even matter if Satan was at one time a human, and was translated into an angelic being? I don’t particularly think so. Most people know what Satan’s all about, and knowing his evil nature, and looking to Christ for answers is the important thing. I simply think that if he were a humanoid of some type, a few things in scripture would make a little more sense to me, that’s all.

Read carefully the way in which God presents Job to Satan. The book of Job has indeed always cast a shadow over many, (myself included), who wondered to no end why God would even bother to speak to Satan about Job. Doesn’t it make sense now, God saying to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, . etc.”

One would think that Satan had at one time or another, given God every excuse in the book to justify his sins by finding fault with God. (I occasionally hear people accusing God of unjust evil. Don’t they know who they sound like?) In the book of Job, God appears to be using Job, a member of the same species, as an example to Satan that Satan’s prior arguments were nothing. Job was being put to a test that far exceeded any pain or hardship Satan may have been through, and used to justify his sin. Perhaps Satan told God, “You don’t know what it’s like to be human. You can always say that you know everything, because you’re God, and you supposedly do know everything. But you can’t truly say that – so that I will believe it, until you lay aside all of your power and glory, and make yourself lower than the angels, and walk in a man’s shoes!”
This very well could have been a real conversation that occurred between God and Satan long ago, at the conclusion of Job’s trials.

In any case, Satan was ultimately put to shame and defeated, considering what God did through His own Son, Jesus, the Christ. God the Father met the challenge Satan may have presented to Him, becoming human, walking in a man’s shoes – and doing it perfectly I might add. He, (Jesus), ended this challenge with the ultimate goal of finally ending humanities painful dilemma of sin once and for all by personally sacrificing Himself to atone for the sin of the world!

5. Satan’s tactics:
Throughout the dawn of time, Satan has been fighting against humanity, trying to justify his own sin by finding fault in the humans of earth. This is why he is known as the great accuser. When Satan became aware of God’s plan of salvation, he trembled in terror. He knew that if it were at all possible, he had to prevent the birth and mission of the messiah. His work toward this goal has been chronicled extensively in scripture. Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman, in their laborious biblical research, have extracted Satan’s tactics in his efforts.

They are as follows: 10 Old Testament
1.Corruption of Adam’s line – original sin. Angels inbreeding with humans: Genesis 6:4
2.Pollute Abraham’s seed – thus, the reason Abraham had to leave his homeland: Genesis 6:4,12
3.Famine – thus created the need for Jacob and his children to travel to Egypt: Genesis 50
4.Destruction of Hebrew male line in Egypt – which Moses escaped: Exodus 1
5.Pharoh’s pursuit and attempt to destroy Israel: Exodus 14
6.Canaan populated with Giants – corrupt offspring from the Sons of God. Continuation of the attempt to corrupt Abraham’s seed: Genesis 6:4
7.Giants filled the Land – presented opposition that feared Israel. Delayed God’s plan for 40 years: Numbers 13:27
8.Had to fight Giants – needed God’s help: Joshua, etc.
9.Attacks on King David’s line: 2 Samuel 7
10.Jehoram Kills his brothers: 2 Chronicles 21
11.Arabians slew all but Ahazaria. Athalia kills all, (but Joash): 2 Chronicles 22
12.King Hezekiah is assaulted, etc.: Isaiah 36, 38
13.Haman’s attempts: Esther 3
New Testament
1.Joseph’s fears – which could’ve resulted in Mary’s not fleeing to Egypt: Matthew 1
2.Herod’s attempts to kill the messiah: Matthew 2
3.Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness: Luke 4
4.Two storms on the sea: Mark 4, Luke 8
5.Jesus sweating blood before the crucifixion – satanic attack to prevent event: Luke 22:44
Many take Jesus’ famous quote, “.take this cup from me.” to be a plea from Jesus, hoping to not go to the cross. I think it could be something more. I think Jesus was under a brutal satanic attack, which was Satan’s last chance to prevent the crucifixion. Perhaps His prayer was for Satan to not be successful in this attempt.
All of these attempts of Satan to prevent Jesus from completing his mission are summed up in one passage of scripture, found in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 12:1-5
“1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.”

Now that Jesus has been crucified, and rose from the dead, the main battle against Satan has been won. Satan is no longer able to argue with God, because he is ultimately silenced by the work of Christ. Right now, he is focusing his attention on individual believers, (Christians), all over the world, doing his best to prevent the spread of the Gospel. This began with the persecution of the early church, and has been continuing to this day. This persecution will continue to plague the humans of earth until Satan’s imprisonment after the battle of Armageddon, and ultimate destruction in the lake of fire following his attack on the New Jerusalem after the millennial reign.

Within his plan of deception is the alien phenomenon. I firmly believe that we are seeing pieces of his deceptive puzzle in the alien abduction phenomenon going on today. This is the prophetic word, spoken by Jesus, about the end times returning to the days of Noah. I believe I, (among a few others), have stumbled on to a large piece of his deceptive plan, and I’m hoping this work will get into many peoples’ hands.

Satan’s deceptive influence spans many worlds in the heavenly realms. He is using his minions, some of which are angels, some are beings like ourselves which are from other worlds, and some are powerful spiritual beings right here on earth. A great deal of them are us, deceived, spreading false beliefs, like that of evolution. All are working together, orchestrating his grand design of deception, which is very near, even at the door.

Extraterrestrials in the Bible

Author John W. Milor in his article titled Angels, the Sons of God, and Their Offspring, the Nephilim posted at www.aliensinthebible.com believed that the evidence of alien presence on Earth is in the Bible.

He mentioned about the books in the Bible with corresponding chapters and verses that would show that ETs are working with early humans in this planet. Below the article of Milor.

1. The astounding power of angels:
When people think of angels, they usually think of powerful beings that are capable of doing things that require a body transcendent of the physical realm. The angels recorded in scripture are powerful beings indeed. One angel, for instance, defended Israel against the Assyrian army, single handedly destroying 185,000 Assyrian soldiers:

2 Kings 19:35
“35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. (Ha – they woke up dead!) “

This incident occurred following a dispute between Hezekiah, King of Judah, and the King of Assyria. I enjoy reading it, because the captain of the guard for Assyria boasts that no gods from any other nations that Assyria fought against helped them to prevail. God’s response to this, found in King Hezekiah’s prayer for help, (2 Kings 19:17-19), can be paraphrased as: “.but the God of Israel, IS-REAL.” This becomes weightily evident when reflecting on the mass destruction of the Assyrian army.

Aside from the mass destruction of armies and cities (Sodom and Gomorrah), angels are also noted for their ability to fly (Matthew 28:2, Revelation 14:6), teleport (Acts 5:19-23), deliver messages in person (or angel, if you will) and psychically in dreams (Luke 1:13, Matthew 1:20, Genesis 31:11)1. They can also bless people with healing (John 5:2-6), curse people with blindness (Genesis 19:1-3), muteness (Luke 1:20), and make people feint (Matthew 28:2). All of these powers indicate entities of a supernatural, spiritual nature. Furthermore, Psalms 104:1-4 and Ephesians 6:12 indicate that angels are indeed spiritual beings.

Psalms 104:1-4
“1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; . 4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire.”

Ephesians 6:10-13
“12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

2. Confusion with classifying angels:
Do these reference apply to all angels? Here is where some confusion may arise due to the liberal use of the term angel. Psalms 104:1-4 wasn’t necessarily stating that angels are strictly spiritual beings. Also, not all angels are enveloped in flaming fire. The angels in Ezekiel 1:4-14, for instance, were angels surrounded by flames of fire, but don’t even come close to the human appearance of the angels that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, among others, which were usually mistaken for being male humans.

Ezekiel 1:4-14
“4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. 8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. 9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. 11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. 12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.”

As for the spiritual beings mentioned in Ephesians 6:10-13, these are spiritual beings that Christian’s wrestle against. This distinguishes them as either fallen angels, or demons – (terms which are unique from each other, and I will define further in this book). Paul mentions them specifically as not having flesh and blood. I think there could be three possible explanations for this passage of scripture.

I don’t think it would be unreasonable to rephrase Paul’s statement as “.flesh and blood as we know it.” – because if fallen angels or demons have flesh and blood, it’s probably different from ours.

Also, it may very well be that some powerful, evil beings may not have any physical form, nor are able to assume any physical form. I classify disincarnate fallen angels into this category, which I will simply call demons. I derive this classification from the assumption that A. Angels are physical beings, B. Angels that sin are cursed with death, and C. Once physically dead, their spirits continue to exist.

Demon is a broad term I use to describe both deceased fallen angels, (non-corporeal), and their deceased aberrant hybrid progeny, such as the Nephilim, (which again, I will discuss shortly). Demons are always distinguished in scripture as beings that seek embodiment, while angels don’t. This denotes them as beings without physical bodies. They likewise aren’t able to assume physical form by their power. They need hosts.

A final interpretation of Ephesians 6:10-13 is that Paul was emphasizing that we, as Christian’s, aren’t struggling just against our own flesh and blood, but against evil, spiritual beings. If this is what Paul meant, then he wasn’t directly stating that the spiritual beings Christian’s wrestle against aren’t composed of flesh and blood. Just because these beings are spiritual, doesn’t meant that they aren’t physical either, or that they don’t have the ability to become physical. Humans, for instance, are spiritual beings, as well as physical.

In any case, there are other scriptures that indicate that angels aren’t strictly spiritual beings. The bottom line of Ephesians 6:10-13 is to be on your guard as a Christian, because there are evil spiritual beings everywhere, and Christians are in warfare against them, whether they like it or not. Christians must prepare for battle!

3. Are angels physical beings?
“As for the issue of angels being physical beings, the fact of the matter is, some angels can assume a physical form as we might define physical. It may even be the natural state of some of them. In scripture, we find angels performing many tasks that require physical bodies. For an example, examine the angels that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:1-3 that I just previously mentioned.”

Genesis 19:1-3
“1And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.”

In order to talk with Lot like a normal person, eat food, and grab and pull Lot’s arm on two occasions, (later in the same chapter), they had to be physical entities.

There are two extreme examples of angels performing activities that make it very difficult to refute their physical nature. The first example is when Jacob, patriarch of the Old Testament, even wrestled with an angel (Genesis 32:24-30, also referred to in Hosea 12:2-4).

Genesis 32:24-30
“24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. 25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. 29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. 30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”

Hosea 2:2-4
“2 The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him. 3 He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God: 4 Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed.
The other extreme example is found in Genesis chapter 6 and is also referred to in Jude 1:6, and 2 Peter 2:4. This second example will be the primary focus of this chapter.”

Genesis 6:1-13
“1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 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. 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. 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. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”

Jude 1:6
“6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

2 Peter 2:4-6
“4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
This example in Genesis 6 opens Pandora’s Box, and warrants an extended discussion. It refers to angels that sinned, inbreeding with humans! They not only had sex with human women, but bore offspring, which is an indication that they were physical by nature. It is possible that the Sons of God are angels that assumed physical form, and were able to mate – I won’t rule this out. I just think it’s more likely that they are physical by nature, and I will explain why before this
chapter is through.”

Here again, we see a distinction. The word angel denotes that there are different types of angels that could be spoken of. In this instance, it should be assumed that humans weren’t mating with 4 headed, 6 winged Seraphim angels, that are described by Ezekiel as having eyes everywhere, and are surrounded by balls of fire and bolts of lighting. (Any attempt would probably result in death!) The angels that sinned, mating with humans, were obviously humanoid, and genetically very closely related to earth humans, because they were capable of producing offspring with them.

Why would angels go through all the trouble to assume a temporary physical form capable of the vast complex ability of reproduction that could result in offspring? Assuming temporary physical forms that could perform rudimentary tasks is one thing; androids could do such. But reproduction is far more complex than eating, talking, and making physical contact with people. Reproduction is serious – biological physical contact!

3.1 The Sethite theory:
Many theologians of relatively recent times have had great difficulty in accepting the possibility that an angel can mate with a human being, and bear offspring. (Strange that the secular media would accept it, while theologians generally scoff at it. In movies such a Michael, and City of Angels – this phenomenon is portrayed, yet sadly it’s cast in a deceptive light. Both these moves glorify this satanic activity).

Following is an excerpt taken from my NIV Study Bible commentary notes concerning Genesis chapter 6:
“The “Sons of God” has been interpreted here (Genesis 6) to refer either to angels or to human beings. In such places as Job 1:6, 2:1, it refers to angels, and perhaps also in Psalms 29:1 (where it’s translated “mighty ones”). Some interpreters also appeal to Jude 1:6-7 (as well as to Jewish literature) in referring the phrase here to angels.

Others, however, maintain that intermarriage and cohabitation between angels and human beings, though commonly mentioned in ancient mythologies, are surely excluded by the very nature of the created order (Mark 12:25). Elsewhere, expressions equivalent to “Sons of God” often refer to human beings, though in contexts quite different from the present one (see Deuteronomy 14:1, 32:5; Psalms 73:15; Isaiah 43:6; Hosea 1:10, 11:1; Luke 3:38; 1 John 3:1-2, 10.) Sons of God, possibly refers to godly men, and “Daughters of men” to sinful women (significantly, they are not called “Daughters of God”, probably from the wicked line of Cain. If so, the context suggests that Genesis 6:1-2 describe the intermarriage of the Sethites (“Sons of God”) of Genesis chapter 5 with the Cainites (“Daughters of men”) of Genesis chapter 4, indicating a breakdown in the separation of the two groups.

Another plausible suggestion is that the “Sons of God” refers to royal figures (Kings were closely associated with gods in the ancient Near East) who proudly perpetuated and aggravated the corrupt life-style of Lamech son of Cain (virtually a royal figure) and established for themselves royal harems.”2

If the Sons of God in Genesis 6 are not angels, then it’s easier for most people to accept, but the argument in favor of the Sons of God being angels is more credible in my opinion. Most biblical evidence, I have discovered, points to the Sons of God in Genesis 6 being angels.

3.2 The Sons of God – angels:
Indeed, even though the context of the phrase Sons of God as mentioned in Genesis and Job indicates angels, many have considered this possibility far fetched, because it’s too weird of an interpretation. There are also some apparent conflicts. Can angels have sex?!? To say “No” seems to contradict Genesis 6. To say “Yes” seems to contradict Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-46 (Angels don’t marry, nor are given in marriage).

Does the Sethite theory resolve this contradiction? No, instead, it raises more problems than it attempts to resolve.

As previously mentioned, the Sethite theory suggests that descendents from the godly line of Seth, (third son of Adam), mated with descendents from the wicked line of Cain. Does this explain why their offspring were Nephilim (giants), genetic monstrosities of nature? No, it doesn’t. Now if one were to ardently hold to the Sethite theory, it could be expounded upon to suggest that the Nephilim (giants) were aberrations because they were the products of offspring between glorified humans of the line of Seth, and sinful, less-glorified humans of the line of Cain. So the origin of giants might be explained as an anomaly created by differences in glory, but now on to argument number two.

The Sons of God are sinning heavily in mating with the daughters of men, in so much that they were cast down and imprisoned in darkness and awaiting judgement. Scripture doesn’t state that they were committing adultery, or fornicating outside the confines of marriage. Why was it such a sin for descendents of the line of Seth to intermarry with descendents of the line of Cain? Nowhere in scripture is any such sanction imposed upon the line of Seth. God declared that Israelites shouldn’t intermarry with non-Israelites, and this was mentioned several places in scripture, because of its vast importance in Israel’s commitment to God. If this distinction was made for the Israelites, and was emphasized so many times in scripture, why would a similar sanction on the line of Seth be completely absent from scripture?

Going further, why would the children of such a godly line, the line of Seth, be inherently evil, as were these giants, the Nephilim? One would think that something better would come of the offspring of the glorified Sons of God, at least by random chance. After all, at least one parent was from a glorified line. Why were all their progeny evil?

Saving the best argument for last, I’ve discovered that it’s basically impossible for the Sethite theory to be true, because of a logical error. In the flood of Noah, according to the Sethite theory, all the Cainites were killed. This can be assumed for two reasons. First of all, God blessed Noah and his children in Genesis 9:1.

Genesis 9:1
“1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”

If Noah, Shem, Ham, or Japeth, had any wife descending from the line of Cain – holding to the Sethite theory – they would’ve been cursed by God, not blessed! (Note that the Sons of God that sinned were cast down into hell and awaiting judgement (Jude 1:1-6, 2 Peter 2:4-6)).
Secondly, from the direct descendents of Noah’s three sons, no Nephilim (giants) are ever mentioned in his lineage – until after many generations. God had no intention of continuing the existence of evil giants in the earth. He wanted the earth to begin with a blessing – refreshed, pure, and holy. Where were these giants coming from, if not from Noah’s family?

If God purified the earth, and all the descendents from the line of Cain were destroyed in the flood of Noah, then how did the Nephilim get back into the earth after the flood? For Genesis 6:4 clearly states that the Sons of God continued mating with the daughters of men, and bearing offspring that were giants, even after the flood. It should therefore become apparent that the Sethite theory is impossible, because Sethites couldn’t have been mating with Cainites, if there were no Cainites!

With all these strikes against the Sethite theory, I find the explanation of the Sons of God being angels to be much more plausible than their being glorified descendents from the line of Seth.
But if the Sons of God were angels, the question still remains: How could it be, that angels can have sex?!? I will answer this question, but before I do, I will first provide more evidence in support of the Sons of God being angels.

Evidence supporting that the angels that sinned were physical by nature – and were in fact angels – can be uncovered by analyzing their offspring, the “Nephilim”, also referred to as “Rapha”, or “Rephaim”, which were giants. References to these half-breeds are found in scripture wherever the word giant appears. (Nephilim: Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33; Rapha, also translated Rephaim: Deuteronomy 2:11, 2:20, 3:11, 3:13; Joshua 12:4, 13:12, 15:8, 17:15, 18:16; 2 Samuel 21:16, 21:18, 21:20, 21:22; and 1 Chronicles 20:4, 20:6, and 20:8).

Why weren’t these offspring normal humans? This can be attributed to two factors. First of all, their parents might be genetically different species of humanoids, i.e., like the slight difference between a horse and a donkey – which when mated together, produce the mutated sterile offspring of mules. Goliath, for instance, the well famed giant smote by King David, was not only a giant, but was also noted as having six fingers on both hands, and six toes on both feet (2 Samuel 21:20). Does this not sound like a genetic mutation anomaly?

Secondly, the level of glory of the angels that sinned sexually with humans was higher than humanities, which might be responsible for supernatural anomalies. Consider that scripture states there were legends concerning these entities. The offspring of the gods, (i.e., found in Greek mythos, and Indian (Vedas), Native American (Anazasi, Hopi, Navajo), and Chinese records) 3, were often reported to have supernatural powers, which is probably why they were legendary, and even worshiped in some cases.

Personally, I believe these genetic monstrosities were a combination of both genetic, and glorified differences between the angels that sinned, and the humans of earth. Concerning their power and dominance, I think they were genetically designed to conquer the world. The Sons of God may have genetically manipulated themselves in experiments to plan out their offspring to have the most dominant, powerful traits as possible. I will return to this theme after providing more background information.

Before I delve into Genesis 6 any further, I would like to point out the fact that I’ve crossed two definitional boundaries. The first boundary I crossed was with Jacob, and his wrestling match with an angel. Genesis calls this entity a “Man”, but Hosea refers to the entity that wrestled with Jacob as an angel. As for Jacob himself, he thought the Man was God. Exactly who was this mysterious figure? He may have been one of the race of humanoid angels I’ve been discussing – (Sons of God), but not a sinful one, obviously. He was the one that dubbed Jacob – Israel. In reality, nobody really knows who He was, and He didn’t want anyone to know either, because He refused to tell Jacob what His name was. With all this put before us, the liberal definition of angel is sufficient, because we know that this entity was not merely a man, judging from the supernatural power he exhibited, and that he had the authority to rename Jacob to Israel. I suspect he was the pre-incarnate Jesus, because it has always been his characteristic to rename His chosen, but that’s just my own opinion.

Also, the second definitional boundary I crossed was the Sons of God. As I have already argued, the Sons of God can be interpreted as angels in several passages of scripture. Again, these are angelic beings that are described, and sometimes even mistaken for being male humans.

3.3 The link between the flood, and Sodom and Gomorrah:
If the connection is made that the Sons of God that mated with humans were in fact angels, then it should be clear that both the references in Jude and Peter I previously alluded to were concerning these Sons of God that sinned.

When reading these two passages of scripture – Jude 1:6-7, and 2 Peter 2:4 – both references are linked with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Jude mentions that the Sodomites gave themselves over to strange flesh. This term, in Greek: “heteros”, {ajlloiovw}, is translated as “Other”.4 Is this not revealing? Going further into this event, let’s now look at why Sodom and Gomorrah are specifically linked to these angels that sinned, spoken of by Peter, and Jude. In Genesis, let me pull out two passages of scripture for analysis.

Genesis 18:20-22
“20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. 22 And the men (angels) turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
Genesis 19:4-9
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know (uh. my paraphrase – have sex with) them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.”

So what we find here is that Sodom and Gomorrah are so incredibly evil, God can’t stand it anymore. Is this really the case? God personally sends his two angels to destroy it. Why? When I look at the cities of today, like Los Angeles, and New York, I wonder why God hasn’t obliterated them yet. The cities of today are full of wretched evil. Exactly what were Sodom and Gomorrah doing that was any worse than what we have today?

Delving deeper, what did God mean when He said, “I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it.”? Dropping down to Genesis 19:4-9, we find just exactly what God was expecting. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah saw two angels enter the city, and were so enthralled with wanting to rape them, they didn’t even care about Lot’s virgin daughters he offered them in exchange! (It could be – conjecture here – just as found in Greek mythology, mating with these beings was possibly pleasurable beyond what we know sex to be.)
This sexual immorality is possibly what God was expecting – and this is why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Sodom and Gomorrah were a haven of sexual immorality, even that between fallen-angels and humans.

3.4 Why Noah?
The sexual immorality found in Sodom and Gomorrah is the same as that found in Genesis 6, and was probably what spawned the flood of Noah. When God destroyed the entire world in the flood of Noah, it was because of the angels that sinned. When the Sons of God started mating with the daughters of men at that time, afterwards the earth was filled with evil giants. These corrupt beings dominated the planet, and were the reason that God was sorry He ever made man.

But scripture states that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, and that Noah was just and walked with God, and was perfect in his generations. The grace that Noah found in the eyes of the Lord, I think, is speaking about Noah’s perception of the eyes of God. As for being just, and walking with God – well, Noah was a pretty great guy! But what does perfect in his generations refer to? The word “Perfect”, translates to “tamiym”{!ymiT;}}, which means “Without Blemish”. 5, 6 Noah, genetically speaking, was a pure-strain human, not some half-breed superhero giant.

Genesis 6:8-9
“8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”

What I think was really was going on in these days was Satan’s plan of attack to prevent the birth of the Messiah. Jesus couldn’t have been born from a corrupt line of fallen angels. Jesus had to be born the Son of Man, and the Only Begotten Son of God. So to prevent Satan from corrupting the entire human race, God completely annihilated the whole world, because at that time, most of the entire human genetic structure, with the exception of Noah’s family, was polluted. Then, after the flood of Noah, God promised He would never destroy the world again. Note: He never promised He wouldn’t destroy any cities. Genesis 6:4 mentions that the Sons of God mating with humans didn’t end after the flood. The brief mention of “.in those days; and also after that”, refers to the fact that the fallen angels, the Sons of God, continued to sin with the daughters of men, and with men in cases of homosexuality, as found in Sodom and Gomorrah, even after the flood.”

God feels the same way now about this sin, as He did back then. Incidents after the flood continued to crop up, because a few races of giants are spoken of in scripture as existing in the world after the flood. They certainly weren’t the dominant force in the world the way they used to be. I think the reason why is because God dealt with the Nephilim, and the fallen angels mating with humans that produced them – like a disease. When incidents increased in particular areas, such as Sodom and Gomorrah, God stepped in and immediately exterminated them. Sodom and Gomorrah probably weren’t the only places God dealt His wrath in this manner either, because Jude 1:7 mentions that there were other cities – “7Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner.”

3.5 Alien abductions in prophesy:
This information about the Sons of God is very important, prophetically speaking? Why? Because these things are still going on today! Both Matthew 24:37, and Luke 17:26-30 quote Jesus as stating that the end times will be a return to the days of Noah. What typified the days of Noah? Fallen angels inbreeding with humans. Luke 17:26-30 especially points to this conclusion, because again, not only the days of Noah are mentioned, but Sodom and Gomorrah are mentioned as well.

Matthew 24:37
“37 But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17:26-30
26 And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

To briefly recap: Satan’s initial plan of attack was to pollute the seed of humanity, and prevent the birth of Christ. While doing so, He had his minions genetically develop a means of producing a master race of warriors; chaotic, and utterly evil. These beings would be capable, by brute force, of taking any women they chose, (which scripture indicates that they took any they chose), and killing all who would defy them. This plan almost worked for Satan, but then God had to come and mess everything up for him. (Thank God!)

Quickly after the flood, Satan began his plan again, but it just wasn’t working as good as it did before. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, (and possibly other cities as well), then sent in Israel to destroy the rest of these giants, empowering his chosen humans, the Israelites, with His divine, supernatural power. Basically, these giants were wiped out.

Did Satan quit? Of course not! I think this is why most of the alien abductions going on these days deal with reproductive experiments. Anyone familiar with the field of genetics should be aware of the fact that a primary portion of this type of research involves many aspects of reproduction. Certainly, the gray bug-eyed creatures frequently reported to abduct people don’t want sperm and egg samples as desktop souvenirs. I likewise don’t imagine that the aliens that collect these samples are simply participating in some bizarre ritual relative to cow-tipping in Wisconsin. (Sounds like a Far-Side comic of a couple of aliens wearing T-shirts saying “Earth 2000, I was there”, and pictured underneath the words are a couple of terrified humans having their. uh, let’s not go there.)

Anyway, these alien beings are obviously working on something other than giants. I think – they are working on several things. First of all, they would like to produce a human of superior intellect, and possibly supernatural power. Secondly, I think they are experimenting with cybernetics, trying to integrate the human consciousness into computer chips. (Imagine how attracted humanity would be to such technology?) Successive chapters in this book will elaborate upon these theories, so don’t worry. I’m not just throwing out these ideas, and leaving them sit there without any follow up.

I don’t think these gray bug-eyed alien abductors we see shows on TV about are the Sons of God. I believe the Sons of God are humanoid. But the gray creatures may be particularly knowledgeable in the field of genetics, and that’s why they are assigned to the task of genetic experimentation. (They were probably the ones that developed the means to produce giants.) They are most likely helping the Sons of God, because one among the Sons of God is a great leader among many of them, and many other species throughout all existence. In fact, he is a leader of a whopping one third the Hosts of Heaven! Uh, oops, getting ahead of myself.

Sorry. Concerning aliens in prophesy, best selling author Hal Lindsey believes as I do, that they have ties with the demonic. While his interpretation of the UFO/alien phenomenon is that aliens are simply earth-bound demons posing as entities from other worlds, he does believe that the UFO/alien phenomenon will play a part in the end-times scenario. He mentions several key relevant passages of scripture indicating this.

I highly recommend his work, for anyone interested in prophesy. 7 Chapter 4 of his book Planet Earth – 2000 A.D., is especially relevant to this chapter, the only exception being that his definition of aliens is different than mine.

All of this information I’ve given on the Sons of God appears to fit with scripture so far, but there is one very big detail I have still yet to answer. Saying that the Sons of God are angels, and did mate with humans, poses some apparent contradictions, because of Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36.

Matthew 22:30
“30 For in the resurrection they (people) neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”

Mark 12:25
“25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”

Luke 20:34-36.
“34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.”

3.6 Marriage and sex among angels:
Now that all the evidence has been submitted supporting the theory that the Sons of God in Genesis 6 were angels, I will finally get to the question concerning angels and sex. How is this? Is there sex among angels? Please pardon me while I take this detour. I’m still answering the question that some angels might be physical by nature.

I find it necessary to take this detour though, because it’s necessary in order to span the full scope of defining the entities spoken of in the Bible. Jesus said that angels don’t marry, nor are they given in marriage (Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-46). If this is so, then how could the Sons of God, angels, be having sexual relations with the daughters of men?

It should be noted that while Jesus states in Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36, that we will be like the angels, which neither marry, nor are given in marriage, He doesn’t say that it’s impossible for angels to have sex. But to say that angels can have sex, and yet no marriage, means that sex would have to take place outside the confines of marriage. Again, we have another apparent contradiction. Sex outside the confines of marriage is defined as sinful in scripture in MANY places: (Acts 15:20, 15:29, 21:25; Romans 1:29; 1 Corinthians 6:13, 6:18; Galatians 5:18; and Ephesians 5:3, just to mention a few).

When referencing these scriptures, it’s important to realize that in none of them does it indicate that sexual relations outside the confines of marriage is acceptable by any means. Sex outside of marriage is a moral absolute, and isn’t okay if it’s safe (fallacy) and prevents the spread of disease, or even if the two people love each other, or to protect the institution of family for the children’s sake, etc. Disease, jealousy and emotional problems, and broken families are often the results of fornication, but are never indicated to be the reason God declares fornication sin. As for homosexuality, this is singled out as being an abomination (Romans 1:26-32; Leviticus 20:13), and fully despised of God.

So are we stuck? How can sex exist among angels, without the institution of marriage to confine it? Mormon theology sort of finds a way around Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36. Mormons interpret these scriptures to mean that all the marrying is done here on earth, but the marriage contract extends into heaven, because Matthew 16:19 states that “Whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.” Therefore, the act of getting married doesn’t occur in heaven, but the actual institution of marriage does. Mormons also use Ecclesiastes 3:14 to support the eternal nature of the marriage contract, which states that:

Ecclesiastes 3:14
“14 Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever.”

On the surface, this appears to be a sound argument to support the existence of the institution of marriage in heaven. When put to the test though, it doesn’t hold water. The Mormon interpretation of Matthew 22:30 violates one of the primary laws of hermeneutics (literary standard by which scripture should be interpreted), which states that scripture should be interpreted within its context. To get an accurate assessment of Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36, one needs to back up and read the passages that precede them. I’ll just take Matthew 22:23-29 for my example. This passage consists of the question that prompted Jesus’ answer – which is Matthew 22:30. (What good is an answer if one doesn’t know what the question is?) Jesus was presented with the example of a woman who had married seven brothers, each dying successively one after the other. When she reached heaven, who was she really married to? Jesus answered saying that we will be like the angels – not marrying, nor given in marriage. If the marriage contract were still valid, Jesus would’ve had to state which brother she would be married to, but He specifically didn’t!

If the Mormon view of marriage holds true, I would thus present the same question. Exactly who would such a woman be married to, as if Jesus’ answer wasn’t good enough?

Since Mormons believe in polygamy, (or do they still?), the Mormon answer might very well be “All!” Trying not to get off the subject too much, (though it appears I already have), but now we have a new question. Is polygamy acceptable to God, and if so, will it exist in heaven? Sure, why not? – NOT! The answer is “No” to both questions.

The question of whether or not polygamy is sinful is actually a little harder to answer than most people might think. I mean, sure, it’s easy for most people to say that it’s wrong – in American society, it’s considered wrong – by most anyway. The way things are going. But does that make polygamy a culturally relative sin? After all, some of the greatest patriarchs of the Old Testament were polygamists. Does this mean that polygamy is acceptable? Again, I must reiterate, absolutely not! But because of the integrity of the Old Testament patriarchs, I’m compelled to elaborate on exactly why polygamy is a sin. (As for culturally relative sin – God is ethnocentric by anthropological standards, so I really don’t have any qualms saying that there is no such thing as cultural relativism when dealing with moral absolutes.)

Let me begin with the sin of adultery. This is one of the Ten Commandments that everyone is familiar with – so we can all begin on the same sheet of music. What exactly is adultery? Answer: Adultery is when a married person has sex with someone other than his/her marriage partner, (with the exception of rape – where choice may not be an option on the victim’s behalf). If polygamy is not a sin, then one could justifiably marry anyone he/she desired to have sex with, thus escape the sin of adultery. Taking this a step further, one could expand polygamy to large groups of people, who after getting married to each other, could thus subject themselves to orgies. If polygamy isn’t a sin, then this wouldn’t be considered sinful.

Let’s just say that the entire United States of America institutes a polygamy campaign, marrying people numbering in the thousands, so that in a matter of a few years, all the people in the entire United States are married to each other. (Sounds like the goal of the 1960′s free-love movement). In order to identify someone you were married to, you would be issued a U.S. citizenship marriage campaign card.

In this scenario, you could have sex with anyone at any time, and it wouldn’t be committing fornication, or adultery, because whoever you were having sex with, (with the exception of homosexuality), would be your marriage partner. Technically, this wouldn’t be considered sin. All that would have to transpire is for each individual to flash their U.S. citizenship marriage campaign card, (among other things), then everything would be holy and sanctified under God.
Given this scenario, as absurd as it is, exactly what meaning does marriage have at this point? Absolutely none. Therefore, if polygamy is not considered a sin, then marriage and the sin of adultery mean nothing. Since God is the originator of marriage, then marriage certainly has meaning, and polygamy is obviously man’s way of trying to circumvent his sin through his own works. “I won’t commit adultery – I’ll just marry 1000 women” thought King Solomon. How absurd.

Now that you’ve tasted the logical argument against polygamy, let’s take a moment to look at the examples of polygamy we find in scripture. Whenever the intricate details of polygamous relationships were chronicled, there were always numerous problems. Abraham, Jacob, King David, and King Solomon all lived in polygamous relationships. All paid heavily for it. In Abraham and Jacob’s lives, there was always bitter resentment, partiality, extreme jealousy (go figure), grief and discontentment – everyone paid the price. With King David, his plan to put Uriah the Hittite on the front lines of battle to be killed, so he (David) could have Bathsheba as another wife, ended in a tragedy that resulted in the death of one of his children, and plagued him for the rest of his life. As for King Solomon, he suffered the worst fate of all; deception into idolatry because his wives deceived him away from the Lord.

Aside from the logical arguments disclosing polygamy as sin, and the living examples, the Lord commands the men of Israel not to undertake the practice of polygamy in Deuteronomy 17:17

Deuteronomy 17:17
“17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away.”

From all of the aforementioned, it should be clear that polygamy is sin. But for the sake of thoroughness, I don’t want to forget about the other passage of scripture I mentioned that Mormon’s use to support the so-called eternal nature of the marriage contract. Ecclesiastes 3:14 gives us the following:

Ecclesiastes 3:14
“14 Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever.”

This is one of those cryptic passages of scripture that makes me scratch my head. But after scratching my head for a moment, I recall Matthew 24:35.

Matthew 24:35
“35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”

Revelation 21:1 refers to the same event spoken of in Matthew 24:35, that heaven and earth will pass away, giving way to a new heaven, and a new earth.

Revelation 21:1
“1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

From what can be seen, it appears that Ecclesiastes 3:14 is contradicting Matthew 24:35, and Revelation 21:1, because Ecclesiastes 3:14 is stating that what God does lasts forever, while the other two scriptures state that the vast existence of heaven and earth will pass away. Since the Bible never contradicts itself, there must be an explanation other than contradiction.

I think this perceived contradiction can be eliminated by dissecting the term “forever”. What is forever, anyway? From scripture, it is given that God is an eternal being, without beginning, or end. Knowing this, it can be accurately assessed that God is outside the space-time domain altogether. From God’s perspective, all things that ever were, are, or ever will be, can be thought of as continuously present, for He is omniscient, and omnipresent. Therefore if “God doeth” something, from His perspective, it “.shall be done forever”, because for God, all things are forever present. So, getting back to the marriage contract, to us, our marriage contract may appear from the perspective of linear time to have a distinct beginning and end. To God though, the time frame in which that marriage contract existed will exist forever.

This is the best I can do concerning this passage of scripture, because I know the Bible doesn’t contradict itself. This interpretation of forever doesn’t apply to just anything. The eternal nature of God, Heaven, Hell, and spirits, for instance, literally exist for eternity – not just from God’s perspective, because there are mountains of scripture to support their eternal nature.

Ecclesiastes 3:14 is just one passage of scripture, and in order not to contradict other scripture, it needs a fitting interpretation that complements other scripture. The interpretation I have just given does just that. But aside from all this, it should be clear that when Mormons apply
Ecclesiastes 3:14 to the marriage contract, they are clearly taking it out of context.

Now that all of the above about marriage and sex among angels has been discussed, it should be evident that the angels in heaven don’t have sex, and aren’t married, nor will we people have sex or marry, once resurrected and translated into heaven. (Note: there is no sex bound with marriage in the highest heaven – but in the New Jerusalem, which is the 2nd heaven, there probably is, because Isaiah mentions that there will be children there). Have I gotten anywhere, or have I just wandered off the subject? Yes.

In summation, some angels came to earth and had sex with humans and bore offspring, but they weren’t supposed to, and this was a sin for them to do. This is obvious, judging from the fact that they were chained in darkness in the depths of hell.

Angels aren’t supposed to have sex, but this doesn’t rule out the fact that they are capable of it. This is still a confusing concept, because to conclude that they are able to have sex and reproduce, but shouldn’t, doesn’t make sense! I have another theory. Wipe the sweat off your brow, and brace yourself!

3.7 Why can angels sexually reproduce, but shouldn’t? The Butterfly theory:
I mentioned earlier that I thought it would be unlikely that the Sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6 would be capable of having sex and baring offspring, if they weren’t explicitly designed to do so. I have a theory that may suggest a possible explanation to this. I call it my “Butterfly” theory. Humans were designed by God to be transformed, like a butterfly, into a new nature.
Remember when Adam and Eve were first created in the Garden of Eden? At this time in human history, earth was in heaven, and humans were in open contact with God, communicating directly face to face with Him. (I will elaborate on the different realms of heaven in chapter 9 of this book.)

Adam and Eve were glorified beings (not translated – there is a distinction), and they were married and had sex with each other. (At this time, there was sex in heaven – but Adam and Eve weren’t angels, and they were married, so it was holy and sanctioned by God.) The first appearances of the marriage contract are found in Genesis 2:21-25, and Genesis 3:16, and are expounded upon greatly in scripture in other books, from this point on.

Genesis 2:21-25
“21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

Genesis 3:16
“.and thy (Eve’s) desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

With this fresh in our minds, we should now recall that the institution of marriage will be done away with, and with it, sex, because of what is stated in Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:34-36. From this, one could logically assume that the human race was initially designed to sexually reproduce within the confines of marriage, until reaching a certain point. Once this certain level of development is achieved, the human race will then be translated by God into a higher species, in which reproduction will no longer serve a function.

After translation, it may be probable that appendages testifying to humanities former nature might still exist. (We might still have our sexual organs when we’re translated). But these appendages – (not really appendages when speaking of the female gender), will only serve as reminders of our former nature. They may eventually disappear over time – or perhaps in future translations. One thing is for sure, they won’t be intended for use! Why? Because there is no marriage in heaven, and without marriage, there is no sexual union.

To be honest, this concerned me when I came to this conclusion, but I console myself with the nature of God. I’m hopeful that God will relieve us from the burning desires of our bodies of flesh. It would be tough to have to deal with the desire of wanting sex, but being denied that desire – for eternity! But the only reason we have a desire to copulate is to serve God’s first command to Adam and Eve as a couple, in Genesis 1:28, and that was “.to multiply and be fruitful.” Since sexual reproduction will no longer be a part of our nature, I’m certain God will also remove our sex drive, which He installed to bless, and help ensure His command in Genesis 1:28. As for why He won’t remove our sexual organs, perhaps He will leave them as conversation pieces? Ha! Actually, I don’t really have any explanation for the existence of these physical attributes that may exist for a period of time, but, in nature, there do appear to be similar examples of this somewhat strange phenomenon; i.e. useless physical body parts. I will elaborate more on these in the chapter on evolution.

So with all that I’ve stated, it should be apparent that humans were designed to develop and reproduce for a while, then God will translate them into a higher species. Humans began as beings lower than the angels, even when they were glorified – and hadn’t sinned yet, as verified in Hebrews 2:5-9, and Psalms 8:3

Hebrews 2:5-9
“5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”

Psalm 8:3
“4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:”

Currently, humans aren’t classified as angels. Humans are lower than the angels, and therefore can’t be considered to be angels. But once translated, humans will be equal with the angels. Not only that, humans will even be the judge over some angels.

Luke 20:34-35
“34 And Jesus answering said unto them, … The children of this world . which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead . 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels;”

1 Corinthians 6:3
“3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels?”

The original question is: Are angels strictly spiritual beings? Now, a definite “No” can be fully established, and additional information which helps provide an understanding as to why it is possible for some angels to have sex, but shouldn’t, is also fully disclosed. After the resurrection, humans will resemble the nature of the translated humans we see in Genesis 6, which are referred to as angels in Jude and 2 Peter. After we, (humans that survive the resurrection), are translated, it wouldn’t be incorrect to call us angels, because at this point, humans will be equal with the angels, and even judging some of them. We will be beings of translated flesh, and fully capable (key word – capable), of reproduction because that was once our function. Furthermore, we will be able to bare offspring – but this offspring would be an abomination, because they would have been born though sin, and utter rebellion against God, and against humanities new translated nature. So now, it should be clearly evident that the Sons of God were capable of having sex, and offspring, but it was something terribly wrong for them to do. They were angels, and turned against the direction that God had glorified them. They turned back to their former state, turning their backs on God. The term “Sons of God”, I believe is a term that can be applied to translated humans. It’s for this reason that it’s sometimes used for Christian humans – pointing to their future state of glory. It’s also used for angels – which may be glorified, translated humans from other worlds. Whether or not the future translated humans of earth, and those we’ve encountered from heavenly realms in our past, are exactly the same species remains unknown.

One factor that distinguishes the humans of earth from humans originating elsewhere is the fact that God decided to make the humans from earth – from earth’s soil, instead of through the same line as the humanoid angelic beings coming from elsewhere. This alone distinguishes earthling humans from others, whereas other species of humans coming from other worlds were probably created from the soil of their original habitations. In any case, if earthling humans aren’t exactly the same as humans from other worlds, they are probably very similar. I say this, because there are many descriptions in scripture where the terms men and angels, referring to the Sons of God, are used interchangeably. Furthermore, earth humans were actually able to interbreed with these other humans from elsewhere, with tangible, (yet diluted and cursed), results. It is for this reason that I classify the species of angel termed the Sons of God, humanoid.

4. What kind of angel is Satan?
Is this all I have to say about the Sons of God? Not quite. For the most part, if humanity encounters an alien species dwelling in the universe in open contact, (i.e., in public eye), and they are humans, this probably means bad news! Why?

First of all, true angels of God always give glory to God, and never desire to direct attention to themselves. God’s faithful angels have been discreet in their appearances throughout the dawn of mankind, appearing to only select individuals of God’s choosing, and only for very brief encounters. There are some exceptions to this general rule. God’s dealings with Egypt weren’t discrete, but were clearly demonstrations of God’s will and power. But it should be noted that grand displays such as those in ancient Egypt are highly uncommon, and aren’t God’s usual methods of using angels. In any case, angels establishing open contact with humanity before Christ sets up His kingdom on earth doesn’t sound like the will of God. People get to heaven through Jesus, not angels.

It’s obvious from Genesis 6 that the Sons of God deliberately turned against God, and even their own nature which God had made them to be, mating with humans and producing children that were giants. Even the terms used to describe their offspring, indicate the nature of the sin involved.

The term “Nephilim”, which means giants, is derived from the primitive root word “Naphal” {naw-fal’} {lp’n:} }}}}}}, which has such meanings as fall down, cast down, and fall away.8, 9 As for the other term referring to giants, “Rapha” {raw-faw’} { !yaip;r]}, or “Raphah” {raw-faw’} {!yaip;r]}, it is the exact same word used for ghosts of the dead, shades, and spirits. So even the meanings of the words used to describe their offspring indicates that they were descendents of fallen angels, and thus were satanic entities by nature.

Seeing that the Sons of God are humanoid angelic beings – and that they are fallen angels at that, (those in Genesis 6), should be reason enough not to trust them. But when I read in Job 1:6, and 2:1, that they’re hanging out with Satan when Satan was requesting permission from God to tear Job’s life apart, I get a very bad feeling in my stomach.

Job 1:6-11
“6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.”

Job 2:1
“1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 2 And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 3 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause. 4 And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. 5 But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.”

Perhaps I got this backwards. Instead of the Sons of God hanging out with Satan, don’t these passages of scripture indicate that Satan – is hanging out with them? These passages of scripture reveal that there is a regularly appointed audience between God and the Sons of God, and Satan is among the Sons of God. Now why might Satan be among them, these humanoid angelic beings, specifically? Why, why, why? Could it be that this is the type of angel Satan is?

Consider Isaiah 14:12-15 as an opener to this query. Doesn’t it appear that Lucifer is in essence, called a man?

Isaiah 14:12-15
“12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;”

Please understand that I’m only entertaining a possibility. I would like to emphatically remind all readers that it’s merely my opinion that there is, in fact, a race of humanoid angels that came about as humans will one day be. This is merely my own conclusion. Keeping this in mind, simply read along with my conjecture, if not for any other reason than the mere curiosity of wondering what I’m going to say next.

Why does Satan show such a despising interest in Job in the previously discussed passages? In fact, why did Satan come to earth in person to deceive Eve, instead of appointing one of his lesser, underling followers to do it? My answer to this question is simple. Because Satan is probably a human that was translated; an angelic member of the species termed “Sons of God”, and once was a ruler on a prior world – or many worlds. (See the last section of chapter 9 for more information on this).

When Adam and Eve were created, Satan was filled with jealous pride, hating God for creating new additions to the kind of angels termed “Sons of God”. Enraged, threatened, and jealous, he personally has set out on a mission to destroy humanity on earth in any way he can.

There seems to be evidence that Satan is intimately linked with earth, in particular. Why is this? Why was Satan allowed access into the Garden of Eden? Was he not fallen and cast out of heaven, yet at that time, earth was in heaven? Why is it that when God cast him out of heaven, He flung him down to earth, of all places? (When I read this, I used to think to myself – “Well gee! Couldn’t he be thrown out to the sun, or in a black hole or something? Why earth!”)

From Revelation 1:16-20, we see that some of God’s faithful angels are assigned positions of authority over churches, and in Daniel 10:12-14, we see that other angels, even those that have fallen and became evil, are still allowed to retain their authority in certain areas of the earth. (Daniel 10:12-14 refers to the Prince of Darkness ruling over Persia, which hindered the archangel Gabriel in his mission to deliver God’s message to Daniel.)

What about Satan? According to 2 Corinthians 4:4, Satan’s power over the earth is such that he is termed god of this world, (small “g”, thank you very much. He’s only called this to denote his power and influence). All three of the above references are indications that powerful entities both good and evil, retain positions of authority over the affairs of the humans of earth – for a limited time. Satan’s role with humanity appears to bear a unique relationship though, because he was specifically cast out of heaven and down to earth, where his judgement will be met through the battle of Armageddon, and ending with his last uprising after the millennial reign.
Further defining Satan’s link with humanity is the fact that his defeat was through God becoming human, and crushing him altogether.

Is any of this really that important? Would it really even matter if Satan was at one time a human, and was translated into an angelic being? I don’t particularly think so. Most people know what Satan’s all about, and knowing his evil nature, and looking to Christ for answers is the important thing. I simply think that if he were a humanoid of some type, a few things in scripture would make a little more sense to me, that’s all.

Read carefully the way in which God presents Job to Satan. The book of Job has indeed always cast a shadow over many, (myself included), who wondered to no end why God would even bother to speak to Satan about Job. Doesn’t it make sense now, God saying to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, . etc.”

One would think that Satan had at one time or another, given God every excuse in the book to justify his sins by finding fault with God. (I occasionally hear people accusing God of unjust evil. Don’t they know who they sound like?) In the book of Job, God appears to be using Job, a member of the same species, as an example to Satan that Satan’s prior arguments were nothing. Job was being put to a test that far exceeded any pain or hardship Satan may have been through, and used to justify his sin. Perhaps Satan told God, “You don’t know what it’s like to be human. You can always say that you know everything, because you’re God, and you supposedly do know everything. But you can’t truly say that – so that I will believe it, until you lay aside all of your power and glory, and make yourself lower than the angels, and walk in a man’s shoes!”
This very well could have been a real conversation that occurred between God and Satan long ago, at the conclusion of Job’s trials.

In any case, Satan was ultimately put to shame and defeated, considering what God did through His own Son, Jesus, the Christ. God the Father met the challenge Satan may have presented to Him, becoming human, walking in a man’s shoes – and doing it perfectly I might add. He, (Jesus), ended this challenge with the ultimate goal of finally ending humanities painful dilemma of sin once and for all by personally sacrificing Himself to atone for the sin of the world!

5. Satan’s tactics:
Throughout the dawn of time, Satan has been fighting against humanity, trying to justify his own sin by finding fault in the humans of earth. This is why he is known as the great accuser. When Satan became aware of God’s plan of salvation, he trembled in terror. He knew that if it were at all possible, he had to prevent the birth and mission of the messiah. His work toward this goal has been chronicled extensively in scripture. Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman, in their laborious biblical research, have extracted Satan’s tactics in his efforts.

They are as follows: 10 Old Testament
1.Corruption of Adam’s line – original sin. Angels inbreeding with humans: Genesis 6:4
2.Pollute Abraham’s seed – thus, the reason Abraham had to leave his homeland: Genesis 6:4,12
3.Famine – thus created the need for Jacob and his children to travel to Egypt: Genesis 50
4.Destruction of Hebrew male line in Egypt – which Moses escaped: Exodus 1
5.Pharoh’s pursuit and attempt to destroy Israel: Exodus 14
6.Canaan populated with Giants – corrupt offspring from the Sons of God. Continuation of the attempt to corrupt Abraham’s seed: Genesis 6:4
7.Giants filled the Land – presented opposition that feared Israel. Delayed God’s plan for 40 years: Numbers 13:27
8.Had to fight Giants – needed God’s help: Joshua, etc.
9.Attacks on King David’s line: 2 Samuel 7
10.Jehoram Kills his brothers: 2 Chronicles 21
11.Arabians slew all but Ahazaria. Athalia kills all, (but Joash): 2 Chronicles 22
12.King Hezekiah is assaulted, etc.: Isaiah 36, 38
13.Haman’s attempts: Esther 3
New Testament
1.Joseph’s fears – which could’ve resulted in Mary’s not fleeing to Egypt: Matthew 1
2.Herod’s attempts to kill the messiah: Matthew 2
3.Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness: Luke 4
4.Two storms on the sea: Mark 4, Luke 8
5.Jesus sweating blood before the crucifixion – satanic attack to prevent event: Luke 22:44
Many take Jesus’ famous quote, “.take this cup from me.” to be a plea from Jesus, hoping to not go to the cross. I think it could be something more. I think Jesus was under a brutal satanic attack, which was Satan’s last chance to prevent the crucifixion. Perhaps His prayer was for Satan to not be successful in this attempt.
All of these attempts of Satan to prevent Jesus from completing his mission are summed up in one passage of scripture, found in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 12:1-5
“1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.”

Now that Jesus has been crucified, and rose from the dead, the main battle against Satan has been won. Satan is no longer able to argue with God, because he is ultimately silenced by the work of Christ. Right now, he is focusing his attention on individual believers, (Christians), all over the world, doing his best to prevent the spread of the Gospel. This began with the persecution of the early church, and has been continuing to this day. This persecution will continue to plague the humans of earth until Satan’s imprisonment after the battle of Armageddon, and ultimate destruction in the lake of fire following his attack on the New Jerusalem after the millennial reign.

Within his plan of deception is the alien phenomenon. I firmly believe that we are seeing pieces of his deceptive puzzle in the alien abduction phenomenon going on today. This is the prophetic word, spoken by Jesus, about the end times returning to the days of Noah. I believe I, (among a few others), have stumbled on to a large piece of his deceptive plan, and I’m hoping this work will get into many peoples’ hands.

Satan’s deceptive influence spans many worlds in the heavenly realms. He is using his minions, some of which are angels, some are beings like ourselves which are from other worlds, and some are powerful spiritual beings right here on earth. A great deal of them are us, deceived, spreading false beliefs, like that of evolution. All are working together, orchestrating his grand design of deception, which is very near, even at the door.

Extraterrestrial History On Planet Earth

Most major religions and ancient cultures text, talk of extraterrestrials coming to earth, interbreeding with humans, and taking some humans to their homes by the stars!

310,000,000 b.c. The first evidence of man was in “ethiopia, africa” and “tansania”. Could one of these be the garden of eden?

18,000 b.c. The native “american indian” civilization begins.

13,300 b.c. The great pyramid of egypt! New evidence is suggesting that the pyramids were built at this time!

13,600 b.c. The great flood!

8,000 b.c. “aborigine” means “from the beginning”. They believed in “dawn beings” from the stars. Australian aborigine cave drawings found depicting celestial beings, with “antenna” and x-ray style drawings. They were very advanced in “aerodynamics”. The boomarang is identical to a modern day aircraft wing.

8000 b.c. Man first appeared in peru!

4500 b.c. Monuments like “stonehenge” start appearing in todays “england”. Stonehenge is an astronomical computer!

4000 b.c. The “sumerians”from todays “iraq”, had contact with extraterrestrial civilizations according to their text. The extraterrestrails also interbreed with humans and traveled with them to the stars. According to sumerian text, each sumerian king lived an average of 4560 years! This can be explained by einsteins theory of relativity. The kings were taken to the stars by the extraterrestrials at the speed of light. At this speed time slows down. Because of this, the sumerian civilization could be as old as 40,000 bc! Sumerian text coincides with “the book of genesis”. Their astronomy was incredibly highly developed. They had numbers with 15 digits! The sumerians say extraterrestrials are from mars, star system “pleides”, and the star “sirius”. Sumerian text shows drawings of solar system. Alignment of planets happened during this milllenium. Next planet alignment will happen on may 5, 2000.

3800 b.c. The “assyrians” were from todays “nothern iraq” “assyrian”crystal magnifying glass found. Requires high mathematics!

3500 b.c. The “egyptian” civilization begins. Egyptians believed gods were real beings from the stars. Text reveals gods would return to earth and revive the “mummys”

3300 b.c. The “greek civilization” begins. They believed in celestial beings.

2500 b.c. Hindu religion begins in india. In delhi, india a 4000 year old pillar made of iron has been found that will not rust! Evidence of higher technology. The “chaldeans” from todays “persian gulf”, introduce “astrology”

2000 b.c. Peru’s inca civilization. Pre-inca said the gods were from the star system “pleides” just as the sumerians did. Inca ruins have been found at 13,000 feet, with one stone weighing
20,000 tons! An impossible feat for humans! Legend tells of spaceships that came from the stars. Inca ornaments of “platnium” were found. Text reveals the inca’s knew the earth was round.

1900 b.c. Judaism is begun. “genesis” is probably derived from alike sumerian text 1700 years earlier. There is strong evidence that the bible’s ancient cities of “sodom and gomorrah” next to the dead sea, were destroyed by a nuclear explosion. Sand vitrications found in iraq next to the dead sea resemble those produced by an atomic bomb. Notice its called the dead sea! High salt content.

800 b.c. Scandinavia’s so called myth’s told of “beings” called “elves”

753 b.c. Start of the roman empire!

551 b.c. Confucianism begins. The prophet confucius is born. An “aluminum” belt was found in “china”.

560 b.c. Prophet buddha was born creating buddhism.

221 b.c. “great wall of china” built.

B.c. Jesus christ is born creating christianity. Jesus could have been half human and half extraterrestrial because of the “immaculate conception”. Genesis 6:4 referrs to gods interbreeding with humans! Genesis 6:4 says “the nephilim (those who come from the sky or giants) were on earth in those days, when the sons of god went to the daughters of men and had children with them. “giants” are referred to in almost all ancient text. This date is in the research books?

30 a.d. Jesus is crucified. Four days later jesus rises from the dead and “ascends into heaven” jesus performed 36 “miracles”

570 a.d. Islam religion is begun. Mohammed is the prophet born. The “koran” is the divine book.
1000 a.d. The mayans call extraterrestrials, “the masters of the stars”

1600 a.d. “istanbul maps” clearly show antartica underneath the ice, which can only be detected by satellite or sonar. Evidence of extraterrestrials.

1908 a.d. Unexplained nuclear explosion in sibera, russia. This happened before the atom bomb was developed!

1947 a.d. With the extraterrestrial crash in roswell, new mexico, ufology is born. Strong evidence of extraterrestrial life begins.

1969 a.d. Humans become “extraterrestrials”by traveling to the moon! Science fiction becomes reality!

May 5, 2000 the planets of the solar system line up in a row!
