Did Satan produce half-mortal/half immortal offspring?
by Tina Leonard
2/08/2007 / Bible Studies
Now, this is where it starts getting more intriguing.
Genesis chapter 6 verses 1- 4 reads as follows.
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 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. 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."
Again you have to pay close attention to this because man and woman had already begun to multiply because Adam and Eve had already bore their children. However, we must pay close attention to this scripture because it says, "when men began to multiply" and daughters were born unto them and they found them to be "fair to look upon" that they chose them a wife. It says that "the sons of God" saw that the "daughters of men" were fair. Right after this it says that, "The spirit of God shall not always strive with man." Which was God's realization that all life has to come to an end eventually. The next verse states that there were giants in the earth in those days.
So, Satan and his fallen angels were ruling over a kingdom that had been created before Adam and Eve. After this had happened Satan knew that God was planning a redemptive people to be called and chosen to live for Himself through and by a choice given unto them by which tree they should eat of. Upon the creation of Adam and Eve, Satan attempted by using a spirit of jealousy upon Cain to wipe out the bloodline in which Christ would be created from. He succeeded again at tempting man by the use of a spirit. Upon doing so, he managed to use Cain to kill his own brother then pushing him out of the presence of God. But God was not finished yet. He then created Seth who the Bible says abided unto the Lord. However while Seth was being created, there were a people that were living in Nod under the authority of Satan and ruling of the fallen angels. However, what we must realize here is that all creation at that time had a choice. They could walk with God, or walk with Satan they had the same choice that we have today. So many of the women at that point from the "Pre-Adam" generation had chosen not to stay in the land of Nod, probably because Adam and Eve after their eyes were opened led many unto the truth. Which takes us back to
"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
So where did Adam and Eve go when God led them out of the Garden? Well, Genesis 3:24 says at the East of the Garden he placed a flaming sword to turn all away, to keep the way of the tree of life. So in other words, God placed guards around mysteries of Heaven, so that one could focus on the "tree of life" which to us is Christ. So, we see here that God wanted man only to come to know Him through the tree of life. But we also see that Satan wanted to be exalted above God. The only way he knew how to do this was to destroy the seed of Seth. The only way he would be able to accomplish this was to create a bloodline that would be defiled from that of which God had created in HIS own likeness.
This is where I shall go into the use of some of the book of Enoch, who was birthed from the creation of Seth. He was created between the birth of Seth and the birth of Noah. Which would have been in the time frame that Satan was trying to wipe out the pure bloodline. So on that note I would like for you to read II Peter 2: 4-22 and I am going to post it here, because it is of UTMOST importance to everything else that follows.
II Peter 2:4-15
"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; 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; 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; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed [his] righteous soul from day to day with [their] unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, [as] they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam [the son] of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
Now, I wanted you to read all of that because of several reasons. First and foremost because verse 4 says that angels sinned. The question here is if they were made as Heavenly beings how could they sin? Especially since the Bible speaks in many places as the "fallen angels" still being under the authority of God? This we see in several instances where God sends an "evil spirit" upon a select few. Or is it quite possible that God is giving the fallen angels a second chance at redemption upon the finality of His judgment? If you read here in II Peter it says they are in chains until judgment but when did he place them in hell? At what point in Biblical history did this happen? It also says here that he spared not the "old-world". Which is in reference to the "creation" before Adam and Eve, which specifically states was before the time of Noah. Now
II Peter 2:15 says
"Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam [the son] of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;"
Now when we look at this the name Balaam means "the ancient of the people or destruction of the people" and Bosor means, "burning or torch". So we see then that these "people" went astray by following their destruction into the fire by sin.
So if the angels sinned, by way of destruction of the people that would conclude that at least "some" of the fallen angels sinned by way of as II Peter states, "Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children."
With that being said I bring up the I book of Enoch which states in
"1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms 2 and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they 3 became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed 4 all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against 5 them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and 6 fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones."
With that being said, I venture into the time of the flood. All that Enoch stated in this chapter lines up with what we have covered so far and so does the last line, which states that the Earth laid accusation against the lawless ones. Because as we see in Genesis 6 5-7 that God saw the wickedness of man and repented that He ever made them. But that Noah found grace with him. So then he spoke to Noah to create an ark, and henceforth as we know it God brought a great flood upon the earth, so as we see in the book of Enoch, that the earth, through the rain that God sent laid accusation against the lawless ones.
Those that were born of the seed of Satan birthed through the fallen angels sinning by taking it upon themselves to mate with the women, producing the giants.
Genesis 6 12-13 reads,
"And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 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."
Now, upon this verse we must realize that it appears that all men created had fallen prey to the influence and trickery of Satan except for Noah. Henceforth Gods judgment came upon them for choosing by their own means to eat of the tree of death.
Now in book I of Enoch in Chapter 10 he states,
"And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the 8 Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. And the whole earth has been corrupted 9 through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin.' And to Gabriel said the Lord: 'Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy (the children of fornication and) the children of the Watchers from amongst men (and cause them to go forth): send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in 10 battle: for length of days shall they not have. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and 11 that each one of them will live five hundred years.' And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves 12 with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is 13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and 14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever."
Now many people who have thought of this concept didn't study it because the generations of giants still existed after the flood, which is where I am going to go now. We see that the book of Enoch states above that the fallen angels would be bound in the valleys of the earth till the day of their judgement. So was it possible that they started to create again after the flood?
We see in Deuteronomy that the Lord instructs Moses to tell the people to overtake the land of the Canaanites and unto the great river of Euphrates (Deut.1:7). So who were the Canaanites? And what was significant about the river of Euphrates?
We see in Deuteronomy 1:4 it says,
"After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei"
Now who were these people? If you use their names to decipher the meaning of this, this verse is basically saying.
"After he had slain the "rooting out (Sihon)" the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in "industry (Heshbon) and the "Giant (Og)" the king of "light soil (Bashan)", which dwelt at the "Grand Duke of Hell (Astaroth) in a "great mass or cloud (Edrei)".
We see throughout the Bible that evil spirits are upon the face of the earth right? So, if that is the case then those angels who had fallen before would then therefore find different means to try to invade mankind right? So since during this next generation man found "great stature" to be importance as we see with the selection of Saul as king over the people instead of God as their ruler. Is it possible that they could have created another generation of giants through possession of a corrupt heart in a man who was turned to evil to create another generation of evil seed? If so who was it that they chose? Well, we see in Deuteronomy that God wanted the Canaanites destroyed. So where did the Canaanites come from?
We see in Genesis 1:22 that Ham, the father of Canaan saw the nakedness of his father Noah and told his brethren. Again, pay attention to the fault that was pointed out. It is the same fault that was revealed unto Adam and Eve when they sinned in the garden. It was out of this generation that the Chaldeans were created. We see that Anak was the son of the founder of the city of Hebron, which we see in Numbers 13:33 is the city in which the Nephilim live according to the spies. Anaks' fathers' name was Arba from the word Kiriath-Arba who was a Canaanite. It was Noah's grandson Canaan who started this generation following after the "Sun-God". (Remember that).
Now we read in Joshua 12:4
"And the coast of Og king of Bashan, [which was] of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,"
They were destroyed. Now, the Bible says that Og was the last remaining known of the giants and in Deuteronomy 3:11 states that his grave measured 9 cubits by 4 cubits which is 14X6 feet. In the late 1950's in the Euphrates valley south east of Turkey tombs containing giants remains were found with leg bones measuring 47.24 inches which would make them 14-16 feet tall.
I Chronicles 11:22-23 speaks of the Behaiah slaying two "lion-like" men and an Egyptian man of "great stature" measuring five cubits high which would have been about 7 and feet tall.
So as we see throughout the ages, Satan tried to stop the seed of Seth, the seed of righteousness from being born. When he saw that he could not do this through the birthing of an illegitimate bloodline he tried different tactics, which I will get into a little later. But I wanted to point out in Deuteronomy 1:28 which would have taken place after the flood the Bible says that those who were instructed by Moses to destroy the land that they said, "Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people [is] greater and taller than we; the cities [are] great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there." Which is what leads me to believe that they were also the ones that tried to build the city walls of Babylon.
