The fallen angels are a group of angels that fell from grace when they decided to leave the heavenly habitation and tried to interrupt or destroy Gods plan for this earth age.
Some would have you believe that these "sons of God" in Genesis 6 were the sons of Seth. The Word does not support that view. We will study this topic and determine what Gods word says about it.
Turn to Matthew 24 where Christ speaks of Noahs flood.
38 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,
Do you know who they were marrying and giving in marriage to? It was the fallen angels or Nephilim. We will document that before were done.
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The flood of these end times are the flood of lies Satan will pour from his mouth when he appears as false messiah (Rev. 12:15). Many shall be deceived by him.
Now, lets cover the afore mentioned events back in Genesis 6. Here we will discover just exactly what occurred before the flood of Noah.
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.
These "sons of God" were not flesh men. These were angelic beings. The phrase "sons of God" in every occurrence in the Old Testament can only mean angels and should not be taken in any other sense.
This was an attempt by Satan to corrupt the lineage through which Christ would come.
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 word "giants" comes from the Hebrew prime "napha" which means to fall. Hence Nephilim, meaning "the fallen ones" or fallen angels.
These Nephilim cohabitated with the daughters of Adam.
Their offspring were gibbor and were known for their ungodliness. Among them was Goliath who David slew.
Lets go to Jude to learn a little more about these Nephilim.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Judes original intent was to simply speak about salvation, but was led more to speak of encouragement and defending the faith. Against whom he was speaking is in the next verse.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
It was these men crept in unawares Jude was speaking of. They deny Jesus Christ and did and do cause trouble.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
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.
Here is where the Nephilim are mentioned again. They did not want to do things Gods way. For their disobedience they are condemned and held in chains until they and Satan are kicked out of heaven to deceive the world (Rev. 12:7-9).
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.
They were an absolute evil group and introduced many of the perverted acts Paul mentions.
Peter also mentions them.
2 Pet 2:4
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;
Their sentence is already passed. There is no repentance for them they will be destroyed at Christs return.
Are you prepared to face these fallen angels? Dont be afraid of them, we have the victory over them in Jesus Name. In Revelation 9, they are instructed not to touch those with the seal of God in their foreheads. But they can deceive those who do not have the seal. Why? Because they dont have eyes to see. They are not prepared with Gods Word.
So, that is exactly what happened in the days of Noah and it will happen again. Be ready, absorb the knowledge God has left you in His Word. Be sealed with the truth. The flood of lies are coming. God will swallow them up if you are prepared with His truth.
I would like to touch on few more verses.
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.
The word "perfect" in verse 9 is the Hebrew word tamiym (taw-meem) and is a technical word for animal sacrifices. It means without blemish. Not in a moral sense but ancestral or pedigree sense of the word. Meaning Noah and his family did not mix with these Nehpilim. That is why Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
The flood came about to destroy the Nephilims offspring. They were an abomination and against Gods plan.
