As long as we don't let our emotions and our zeal to protective what WE think is correct doctrine, get the better of us.
That's the thing that gets me. B.W. is so sure of his DNA manipulation doctrine, even though it's based on extra biblical arguments. Doctrine should be based on what's in scripture.
With me on this issue, I don't hold to any doctrine(Sethite, Rulers, etc.). I just think the text, taken in context leads to the conclusion that sons of God in Genesis 6, have to be humans.
I follow early church thought as well as ancient Hebrew thought on this subject and look for the signs that are before our eyes and simply ask hard questions and am not afraid to think outside the human pride box along with deep prayer.
Let's look at..
The human only tradition came much later and was based off of the Second book of Adam and Eve in order to to promote a works based salvation mystical approach to become sons of god. Justifies Necromancy, grave soaking, ancestral worship, and mysticism. It also was used remove supernatural aspect of the OT to fit a certain form of Sanhedrinism view on the OT and support mysticism.
When Jesus said in Luke 17:26 "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man..
Jesus said - And just as it happened in the days of Noah....
Gen 6:1-8, "Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.
3 Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."
4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them." 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD." NASB
For the Sethite view to be literally true, then where is Cain's line today? Does it exist, today, NOW?
Answer is NO.
Then, who are the human beings, or Leaders, that are going after whom to corrupt humanity - after all Jesus said in Luke 17:26; "And just as it happened
in the days of Noah..." NASB
Just as it happened means what it means. Period.
There is no linage to Cain's line anymore, is there?
The sons of God phrase does not denote human beings or leaders who corrupted themselves with modern day Cain's daughters by means sexual union to make Nephilim... in those days and afterwards...
After all, Gen 6:4 says this: "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them.
Hmmm bible indeed states clearly - Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward...Where in the bible does it says Cain's line survived the flood so that also afterwards happened?
These verses state whom these were afterward as well as their height - Num 13:33; Deut 2:20-21, Deut 3:11; 1Sa 17:4; 2Sa 21:15-22...
Did King David strike down a son of Cain? or a perfectly proportional giant being named Goliath?
Note this: Very tall human beings due to Genetic's have many health issues, tumors etc, and often body cannot support the structural weight properly. See Gigantism - Health Line
These are not Nephilim in any sense of the word. Which the pictograph letters of ancient Hebrewְ נִפיִלים means: the Seed, who bear the words, of new order, to shepherd forth, order of chaos...
This fits what Gen 6:5 states, "Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually....
So, what we see in Jesus's own words in Luke 17:26, "And just as it happened in the days of Noah
We will see the beginnings and plannings of a new type of improved human being being made, While this begins we will also see the wickedness of man becoming very great on the earth, and see a switch that justifies intent of the thoughts of the human heart heart becoming more twisted than ever. This fits all prophecy of the end times.
Are there plans to genetically modify human beings for the betterment of society as stated in medical journals? YES!
Are human beings mixing human DNA with Pig DNA in order to grow human organs in these pigs to harvest for organ transplants? YES!
Does mixing of entirely two different species DNA being developed? YES?
Are food beings GMO's? YES!
Are the advances in human robotics accelerated and these robots becoming more lifelike and able to think on their own?
Where and from whom did this technology come from?
What noble sounding reason are such things being justified to do? Ezekiel 28:16 says what?
For Jesus' words to be true in Luke 17:26: "And just as it happened in the days of Noah
..." there will be similar things going on midst a time when things appear normal... yet are not.
For Jesus' words to be absolutely true according to the Sethite or Human origin view, would mean that there must be a Cain's line still around, yet, all of Cain's seed died in the flood, and, next, we should have God fearing men running after Cain’s daughters for sex in order to bring about humanities corruption to usher in one the days Jesus mentions.
That can't be what Jesus' means by “And just as it happened in the days of Noah…” can it? Where it the scriptural proof for this? Where is Cain's line and daughters enticing modern Sethites of today? Really????
That reason alone discredits the Sethite Human origin view of who the sons of god are in Gen 6:1-4...
Other non-biblical writings from ancient writers known to have histories of history available in their time which we do not have today support that the sons of God were indeed fallen angels who sought to corrupt humanity to stop Gen 3:15 from happening.
How the fallen angels did so, is not clear but with Jesus own words - And just as it happened in the days of Noah - we can see genetic modifications are real and indeed happening as well as people getting worse and worse thinking they are improving humanity.
The signs are there and becoming plain sight: "so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man.."Luke 17:26 NASB
One of the days, plural days, meaning two appearing. One is when he appears in the rapture to be those on watch for him to be their ark and the other day - is mentioned in Rev 19:15,16.
All I can do is point out what is happening before our eyes that is happening on a worldwide scale as seen in the bible concerning the end times that fit no other time in human history... due to the Genesis 6:1-4 warning Jesus gave in Luke 17:26
i did not mention CERN nor the rise of the Occult in the world nor did I mention the actual push for global government...on the scale it is today...
Gen 6:11-13, "Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth...
All flesh includes all of Cain's line...and all that was corrupted...
For the human view of sons of God mentioned in Gen 6:1-13 to be true, then Cains' line survived so that Jesus words in Luke 17:26 to hold true. The bible does not support the human origin view at all.
The sons of God in Gen 6:1-13 refer to fallen angels... and Satan as the king over all the sons of pride.
