Genesis Chapter 6
"The Generations of Noah"
Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's
In chapter three Satan attacked the woman, Eve, to destroy the future seed that would bruise His [Satan's] head. That seed is Jesus Christ, the "Tree of Life". He tried to destroy the womb of the woman by polluting the lineage, and now, as much as he could not accomplish that, he is going to send some of his fallen angels, as mentioned in Jude 6, to complete the task. A lot of people have difficulty with this, because they do not understand the supernatural.
God does things many times in a more natural way than we do, that even the creation of two separate body forms, such as the angelic and the human form have certain things in common. The Israelites ate the "manna" the angel food in the wilderness, and it sustained them for the forty year generation, as recorded in Exodus 16:14-24.
We will see in this chapter that the angels were so compatible with the human form, that they could eat of the food substance of man and survive, and even breed with the daughters of men. We know that God made man and angels alike, in His image, so understand that there is not that much difference in the physical body of man, and the angelic bodies of the angels, as far as food intake, and other matters, in this second earth age.
In Genesis 1:26 and 27 God tells us that man is made in the exact pattern, or image as He and the angels. It is because of this that Satan will make another attempt to destroy not only woman, but all the daughters of mankind.
Genesis 6:1 "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,"
Genesis 6:2 "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose."
The "sons of God" are angelic beings, or angels, and their offspring are called "the Nephilim". These angelic beings, or angels saw the daughters of men were beautiful. These are the fallen angels of Jude 6, who followed Satan in his fall in the "world that was", which is the first earth age. Jude 6 reads; "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."
We see that it is these fallen angels that are already reserved undo judgment, and continuing to follow Satan's, in their coming to earth, and intermixing or marring Adamic daughters. This may be strange to you, However, it is taught by Paul in the New Testament. Paul was warning Woman in I Corinthians 11:10; "For this cause ought the woman have power [a sign of authority] on her head, because of the angels."
The protection, or power of authority Paul warned against was from the angels. Though many translate this covering to be "hair", however, it should be veil. That veil is the "Holy Spirit". Because in the latter days it is going to be just as it was in the days of Noah, and friend we are in the latter days. If both Jesus and Paul warned the Christians to be alert of this fact, we had better be alert of it.
Genesis 6:3 "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."
Think on that phrase; "man is flesh". God has just shortened mans life span from the thousand years, to "an hundred and twenty years".
Genesis 6:4 "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."
The giants are the Nephilim, or those offspring of the marriage between the fallen angels, and the daughters of men. Who could that be, you may ask? The progeny of any sexual relationship is children, or descendants. These children, or offspring from the angelic relationships were misfits. They were deformed giants.
So here we have a problem, for these offspring were not born innocent of woman, but their true parentage , came directly from the heavens. They "left their habitation, as we saw in Jude six, and began to seduce the daughters of men. We are told that there were no women in the world that was, that first earth age, for all souls existed as "sons of God". They refused to come to earth as required in our Heavenly Father's plan, through the womb of woman, but rather came and took the women as their wives.
God plan required all souls to come to earth to be born of woman, and as an innocent soul; These angels defiled God and took these earthly women as play things. So these fallen angels [the sons of God] came and produced a mixture of earthly man, and angelic being which was a monstrosity, to walk the earth. Why again did this take place?
Because Satan tried to destroy the womb of woman, and the perfect, pure blood line of man, that the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ would be born through. That Christ child would provide salvation for all souls, that would believe upon Him.
Genesis 6:5 "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."
It was evil going on twenty four hours a day. Jesus referred to this time, when He was asked how it would be just prior to His return, in Matthew 24:37. It is going to be just like it was in Noah's time, when our Lord returns. Because Satan and his angels will be cast out of heaven, and walking the earth. If you are living in a fairy tale land, and thinking of angels as some ghostly figures, my friend you will be deceived, for both you and they are made in the same image.
Revelation 12:7; "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,"
This war will come to a conclusion very shortly, and for Michael and his forces are far superior than Satan's.
Revelation 12:8; "And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven."
Revelation 12:9; And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
Did you catch that? Satan and his band of angelic beings are going to visit us on earth, and we are told in Revelation 9:1 that this will be at the sounding of the fifth trumpet. Friend, we are in the last generation, and the fifth trumpet is sounded before the seventh trumpet, which is the coming of our Lord. We will see Satan presenting himself as the Antichrist. the counterfeit of the true Christ, Jesus Christ. If you are expecting to fly out of here in a rapture, then you don't stand a prayer of a chance against the Antichrist's deceptions coming upon the earth.
In Matthew 24:38, 39 Jesus told us; "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Jesus is telling us, this isn't the Messiah that you will be worshipping. This is Satan and his bunch of misfits, and fallen angels that will deceived many, for all the people in the final generation will be deceived, except for God's elect.
We can also read of these misfits in the first four verses of Jude. They are the "men ho crept in unawares, ordained to condemnation, and denying our Lord Jesus Christ". It's amazing how the only book that offers any hope and salvation against the world wide destruction that will fall upon our generation, is treated worse then a dime store novel, and thrown on the shelves of Christian homes. You would probably read the novel before the Word of God.
This book given us by God, pinpoints exactly what we are to face, as this earth age comes to a close in our generation.
Paul's second warning came in II Corinthians 11:3-4, where Paul warns women that Satan and his false ministers will come and seduce you again, as the "serpent wholly seduced [beguiled] Eve". Paul is telling the ladies that they had better get their head's covered, with the vail of truth. We must understand that our generation is in the final days, and these things are going to be happening again and will catch the minds of most people asleep, and draw them into the Antichrist's deception.
The deception of a false joy will leave you totally defenseless, as a scorpion sting, and all except "God's elect", those sealed in their minds with the knowledge of God's Word, will be defenseless upon At Satan's arrival on earth. This is spelled out in Revelation 9:3-4. When these fallen angels are walking on the earth, it will be the events of Noah's time all over again.
Genesis 6:6 "And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart."
This was a hard thing for God to accept. His plan was so fouled up, that He gave up on all mankind except for Noah and his family, and two of every kind. These misfits of angelic beings, came to destroy all mankind; to reveal the hidden secrets of old, and block the plan of God.
Genesis 6:7 "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."
God will not totally destroy them, as He did in the first earth age, for through a covenant with Noah, two of all animals of every kind, will survive the flood.
Genesis 6:8 "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord."
There was one man that found grace [unmerited favor] in the eyes of God. What was the reason for that grace, for God doesn't play favorites amongst his children?
Genesis 6:9 "These are THE GENERATIONS OF NOAH; Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Hoah walked with God."
The term, "and perfect in his generations," is referring only to his ancestry. Does it mean there was no sin in them? No; for we know sin came into this world through his ancestors, because the Bible clearly tells us of the sins of Adam and eve in Genesis 3, and Enos in Generation 4:26. Both Noah, and his wife came from families which are recorded in the scriptures, as not mixing with the fallen angels. Neither of them had a drop of angels blood in their veins.
The word "generations" in the Hebrew text is # 8735 in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary, and comes from the Hebrew prime; "Toledoth", and means family tree, or history. When we take "family history called "perfect", in the Hebrew text it is called "tamin", that family is "without blemish as to breed, or pedigree".
This verse does not speak of Noah's moral perfection, but tells us that he and his family had preserved their pedigree, and kept it pure, inspire of the prevailing corruption brought about by the fallen angels, [their children were called "Nephilim"].
Genesis 6:10 "And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth."
Genesis 6:11 "The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence."
Genesis 6:12 "And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth."
Noah and his family are the only ones that did not mix, and take part in the evil and corruption brought about by these fallen angels. Remember what Jesus said in that this would happen again just prior to his return? He said it would be as in the days of Noah. The barriers are being torn down today as it seems our educators are more interested in the breeding patterns of our kids, then the three "R's". The racial barriers are gone, and the next step that this crazy world will come to, is when Michael and his angels cast Satan, and the fallen angels to earth, as recorded in Revelation 12:7-9.
If you do not know this, or have sealed it in their minds, you will not even expect, or put up a defense against them, as they leads you slowly past the point of no return, and destroy you and your family.
Genesis 6:13 "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."
In the Hebrew text it reads, "I will destroy them from the earth." The earth shall remain, but the people will be changed to another form. When this happens again in the end times, we will be in the Millennium. I Corinthians 15:50-52 tells us that all flesh will be changed into their spiritual bodies.
Genesis 6:14 "Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch."
The word "Pitch" is "Kaphar" in the Hebrew, which means "coat it". It is a covering, and it is the only word used for "atonement", in the Old Testament. God told Noah, this ark will be your salvation.
Genesis 6:15 "And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits."
A "cubit" is approximately 22 to 25 inches, but this is a profane cubit. The sacred cubit is about 25 inches.
Genesis 6:16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it."
We see here three stories, which represents the three world ages, "as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end," said our Lord in Matthew 24.
Genesis 6:17 "And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die."
The exception, however, are those whom God will save that are in the ark.
Genesis 6:18 "But with thee will I establish My covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee."
When God made a covenant with Noah, this is the first time that the Bible states where God made a covenant. That covenant is the salvation or covering extended to Noah and to all of Noah's family, because of their perfect pedigree, for not allowing the the angel beings to marry and enter their family.
Genesis 6:19 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female."
Take note of the fact that each race of the sixth day creation are also flesh, and "after their kind", extends to them also. The black, the yellow race, and the Kenite were all flesh, "and after their kind.", and of every living thing of all flesh". God stipulates "one male and one female". This is so each race can start over, and each of these persons aboard the ark then was covered under the covenant that God made with Noah.
This is one of the ways the races could have survived the flood. However, the other idea is that the flood destroyed only that which God had intended to flood. The area of flooding existed only in the area that the hybrids of the fallen angels had settled in. That area that the Adamic race had intermixed with the Nethilims.
These Nethilims had to be destroyed, with a clean start for the blood line that already existed, to survive. Why do we state this? Because God's plan required it to assure the proper birth for the coming Messiah. The other thing that we must not overlook, is the fact that God writes in His plan, and that plan is His Word, the Bible, every thing that He intends to do. When you discard the Old Testament, you are turning your back on the warnings that God is giving us in advance of the great deception that will be coming upon us.
I have heard pastors personally tell their congregations that Revelation is not to be read, and certain parts of the Old Testaments do not apply any more. Their ignorance of God's Word, and this plan will allow that flock to march joyfully into the Antichrist camp, and think all the time they are praising God.
Genesis 6:20 "Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."
Genesis 6:21 "And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them."
Genesis 6:22 "Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he."
Noah was obedient to God's commands, and because of this God chose Noah and his family for extending life on this planet. They did as God instructed in the things of everyday living. They did not follow these Nephilim, and intermix with those strange creatures. Do you think Jesus lied in Matthew 24:37-39, when He said that it will be just like that again in this final generation. That time will be when Michael cast Satan and his angels to the earth.
Today we see men, calling themselves teachers, when they have no idea of God's plan, nor what happened in the garden of Eden, to the time of the flood. These men are telling you what to expect in this final generation, yet many don't even believe Jesus was any more than a man, and the story of the fallen angels are just a fairy tale to them.
Our Kenite loaded governmental agencies have for years made jokes of that they can not either see or touch, and in these last days Christians are simply not aware of what is going around them, and how it relates to exactly what is stated in the Bible. Most Christians today have ignored Jesus Christ's warning, as well as that of the Prophets and Apostles pertaining to the Antichrist, his army of fallen angels, and the Kenites, the children of Satan through Cain.
We are to study all of the Word of God, and fix it in our minds. The time is short, and the battle in these days will be a spiritual battle in very high places. That battle with Satan, the Antichrist will be in the battleground of our minds, and fought with words, ideas, concepts, and false doctrine. It will all be presented in a manner that you simply cannot refuse, unless you have your spiritual armor on.
Ephesians 6:10-20 is a start to prepare you for the "flood" that will cover the earth totally, however, that flood will be of lies, deceptions, and lying wonders that would even fool the elect, if they had not been prepared for it.
Genesis 6 is a prelude to what we will see shortly, very shortly, and that flood will claim your very soul. It is time to consider what you are being taught, and just how your teacher is handling and interpreting the Bible for you. We each stand before the Almighty Father and are accountable for our own actions.
