First off, there is no flesh womb in heaven. Of course, no marriage or procreate.
Angels have some form of body, as the 2 angels that went into Lot.
The people of Sodom and Gom., Wanted to have sex with them.
The people of Moses ate manna, angels food.
Jesus ate with some of His disciples, after the resurrection.
The Holy Spirit impregnated Mary.
A whole lot of angels protected Elijah, which had to open his servant's spiritual eyes.

Second,
In Job 1:6, Job 2:1
Now there was a day when the SONS OF GOD came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Also, Job 38:7
Speaking of the foundations of the world,
When the morning stars sang together, and ALL THE SONS OF GOD shouted for joy...

Who do you think these are?

God created the angels, they are His..
All souls belong to God. Ezek.18:4

Third,
Look up Giant, in the Strong's, # 5303, Hebrew, naphal, from # 5307 , meaning to cast down, fall, lost, throw down...
comes from the word Nephilim, which is giants.

also, I don't think because one is ungodly and the other not, can produce giants.
It would be mutation of the genes.

In Jude 6
And the ANGELS which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation......
where do you think they went?

I have studied this, and have heard your explanation from others before, thus, has not given me any information that has changed my mind, thus far.

Ps,
Why would God make Israel destroy this line of race, thru war?
Women and children and everything....
Sons of God (small s) is used many times in scripture to refer to men (not angels) such as Genesis 5:1, 2 and Luke 3:38 calling Adam the son of God. Adam was the first son followed by Seth and then his son Enos and the family began to call on God, Genesis 4:26. These are the first sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6. Sons of God have always been followers, believers and worshippers of God. Man was created in the image of God in His likeness for the purpose of having dominion over the earth and to multiply the earth as male and female created he them, Genesis 1:26-28. Nowhere does it say that angels were involved with multiplying or having any dominion over the earth as Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25 makes it clear that angels do not marry nor are given in marriage so in fact they also can not procreate.

Sons of God (small s) in Job 1:6 and Job 2:1 can not be angels in these verses especially when Satan who is an angel just as the other fallen angels that were cast out of Gods heaven and are in everlasting chains (not literal chains) under darkness unto the judgment of the great day, Jude 1:6. But Satan has not yet been thrown out of heaven and does travel between earth and heaven accusing the brethren before the Lord. Under darkness means hid from the face of God as never able to approach Him as they were cast down to earth and have no more access to Gods heavenly realm. Read Hebrews 1:5-8; Psalms 104:4, God never called any of His angel’s sons. Jesus is Gods only begotten Son and the angels were ministering spirits. We who believe and are followers of God are brothers and sisters with Christ and sons and daughters of God. Satan believes in God, but is not a follower or worshipper of Him. The phrase sons of God is used four times in the OT and seven times in the New Testament. Every time sons of God is used it describes followers, believers and worshipers of God. (Genesis 6:2, 4; Job 1:6; Job 38:7; Hosea 1:10; John 1:12; Romans 8:14, 8:19 Gal 4:6; I John 3:12)

Those sons of God in Job 1:6; 2:1 that presented themselves before the Lord are followers of God just as Moses followed and worshipped God and was called of God to present himself before Him on mount Sinai, Exodus 34:2. Read Job 1:6 again. It says Satan came also among them when they went to present themselves before the Lord. This means Satan was there like he is with all of Gods children to try and buffet them. If you go back to vs. 5 you read that it was Job who sent his sons (sons of God) to go and be in the presence of the Lord that God would sanctify them. Satan, being a spirit that Job's sons could not see came among them as a buffer trying to interfere with God sanctifying them. When God asked Satan where he came from he said from going to and fro in the earth and from walking up and down in it.

Job 38:3-7
Gird up now thy loins like a man, for I will demand of thee, and answer thou Me.
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measurements thereof, if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the corner stone thereof,,,,,,
When the mornings stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for glory.

Any created being can be called "a son of God".
Jesus was the only son of God, per se, His offspring.
Jesus was God in the flesh.

Now back to Job 38:3-7
Who were they? We are talking about before and during the foundations of the earth.

Morning stars?
Jesus is referred to the morning star, in Rev.2:28, Rev.22:16

Lucifer was also referred to the son of the morning in Isa.14:12.KJV
Some versions of the Bible, omitted the word Lucifer.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!....

Lucifer, Strong's #1966, Hebrew, heylel, hay-lale, meaning,
Sense of brightness, the morning star, Lucifer.

When the morning stars sang together, hmmm.
This goes back before the foundations of this earth age.
Thus, the sons of God stated in Job 38:7, were angels.

But to each his own,
Good to hear from ya

Joshua 11: 21 And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.

According to the Tanakh the Anakim were described as a race of giants that descended from Anak who was the son of Arba. Arba was a man of large stature (giant) as all the Anakites were. They inhabited the land in Canaan and this is why God sent Joshua to destroy them so Israel could posses the land.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance - Hebrew #5303
nef-eel' (Nephilim) a fellar ie: a bully or tyrant - giant

Historical ethnology is separated into the sons of Noah being Semites (Seth), Hamites (Ham) and Japhetites (Japheth). It was through the descendants of Ham that man began to turn away from God starting with Cush's son Nimrod who was Ham's grandson.

Arba, the father of Anak posses the land in Canaan and more than likely a descendant of Ham's son Canaan through his son Heth (Hittites) whose god was the sun goddess, but also could have been from the line of Cush's son Nimrod who also worshipped the sun goddess.

The Nephilim, referred to as fallen one's, mighty men who were of old, men of renown, are the descendants of Anak and nothing more than being very tall men. According to some archeologists that found skeletal remains of Semite men, these men were only around five feet tall, give or take a few inches. It's like today as men are normally five foot to six feet tall. Anything over seven feet tall would be considered a giant in comparison.

It was men who began to multiply on earth, Godly and ungodly men (not angels) and daughters were born unto them. The sons of God, Godly line of Seth, took them wives of the daughters of the ungodly line of Cain and choose wives from them. These daughters were more likely ungodly women being from the line of Cain and not of Seth. This is why God said my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh.

...and then his son Enos and the family began to call on God, Genesis 4:26. These are the first sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6.
Please note that NOWHERE in the Old Testament are the saints called "sons of God". However angels -- direct creations of God -- are called sons of God in both Genesis and Job. The saints are either called "righteous" or "saints". An example is Noah, Daniel, and Job (in Ezekiel), called "righteous", while "the saints" mentioned several times in Daniel and other Scriptures.

However in Genesis 6, "sons of God" are contrasted with "daughters of men" which immediately presents two different "species". If "sons of God" in Gen 6 was a reference to the righteous or the saints, then it would be absurd to conclude that the union of the daughters of men with righteous men would result in extreme wickedness on earth leading to the Flood!

Those "sons of God" are called "the angels which kept not their first estate" or "the angels which sinned". Please note that in the relevant passages, they are connected with sexual sins:
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. 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. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. (Jude 1:6-8)
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell [Tartarus], 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;)... 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. (2 Pet 2:4-10)

Of course the book of Enoch has much to say about these evil angels who produced giants (Nephilim) and men of renown through their union with human women.

I love my Strong's exhaustive Concordance!
If you notice #5303, it also says it is from #5307.
Which is to fall, cast down, overthrow, perish, throw down.

I agree as in #5307 this is what happened when Joshua was sent out to slay all the Anakims, except the ones who fled into Gaza, Gath, and in Ashdod.

Of course the book of Enoch has much to say about these evil angels who produced giants (Nephilim) and men of renown through their union with human women.
We are children of God which makes us sons and daughters to God.
1 Chronicles 22:10; Jeremiah 31:20; ; Hosea 1:10; Matthew 5:9; Luke 6:35; Luke 20:34-36; John 1:12, 13; Romans 8:12-26

Genesis 6:1-6 was before the flood as men began to multiply on the face of the earth beginning with Seth and also with Cain, (Godly line - ungodly line). We know Adam and Eve had more sons and daughters, but scripture does not go into detail as naming them or how many more they had. It was through theses sons and daughters, including Seth (Godly line) and Cain (ungodly line) that the earth began to multiply.

These sons of Adam, other than Cain, were also sons (children) of God as it was by Seth and his son Enos that men called themselves by the name of the Lord, Genesis 4:25, 26. These men being sons (children) of God and all their brothers saw that the daughters of these men (brothers) that they were fair and married them. You have to remember that Cain would have also found a wife among these daughters as there were no other people, but they who were on the earth at that time.

Giants are only men of great height meaning they tower over others. The average size of a Semite was just a little over five feet so anyone taller than six feet would seem like a giant. The Nephilim were very tall people being ungodly more than likely from the ungodlt lineage of Cain.

They were called giants in the sense that they were very tall men in stature such as Og in Joshua 12:4 Goliath was a Philistine of great stature (giant) being a descendant of the Anakim, 2 Samuel 21:15-22 Numbers 13:3-33 the spies were sent out and came back with a report which included them seeing the sons of Anak who were Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai which come from giants as the spies looked like grasshoppers compared to the size of these men. Anakim are a race of giants descended from Anak. They dwelt in the south of the land of Canaan, near Hebron, Josh. 15:13. According to Genesis 14:5-6 the Rephaims who were giants in whom Og, the King of Bashan, was one of the last survivors of the Rephaim inhabited the region afterwards known as Edom and Moab in the days of Abraham.

Angels are spirit, but can appear in human form being only an outward appearance as God sends them for His purpose among men. Since angels are spirits they are not physically equipped to consummate a marriage nor do they have sperm to produce children. When these men in Sodom wanted to have sex with them they did not know they were angels.

The phrase sons of God is used four times in the OT and seven times in the New Testament. Every time sons of God is used it describes followers, believers and worshipers of God. (Genesis 6:2, 4; Job 1:6; Job 38:7; Hosea 1:10; John 1:12; Romans 8:14, 8:19 Gal 4:6; I John 3:12)

If you break down Genesis 6:1-8 You can see that those sons of God were not angels as angels are spirit and can not procreate nor are given in marriage, Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25. 1Corinthians 15:39, 40 states that men are men, animals are animals, fish are fish and angels are angels. There is no scripture which would even remotely lead us to believe angels had sex with women or that Giants were born of them.

Sons of God (small s) is used many times in scripture to refer to men (not angels) such as Genesis 5:1, 2 and Luke 3:38 calling Adam the son of God. Adam was the first son followed by Seth and then his son Enos and the family began to call on God, Genesis 4:26. These are the first sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6. Sons of God have always been followers, believers and worshippers of God. Man was created in the image of God in His likeness for the purpose of having dominion over the earth and to multiply the earth as male and female created he them, Genesis 1:26-28. Nowhere does it say that angels were involved with multiplying or having any dominion over the earth as Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25 makes it clear that angels do not marry nor are given in marriage so in fact they also can not procreate.

Sons of God (small s) in Job 1:6 and Job 2:1 can not be angels in these verses especially when Satan who is an angel just as the other fallen angels that were cast out of Gods heaven and are in everlasting chains (not literal chains) under darkness unto the judgment of the great day, Jude 1:6. But Satan has not yet been thrown out of heaven and does travel between earth and heaven accusing the brethren before the Lord. Under darkness means hid from the face of God as never able to approach Him as they were cast down to earth and have no more access to Gods heavenly realm. Read Hebrews 1:5-8; Psalms 104:4, God never called any of His angel’s sons. Jesus is Gods only begotten Son and the angels were ministering spirits. We who believe and are followers of God are brothers and sisters with Christ and sons and daughters of God. Satan believes in God, but is not a follower or worshipper of Him. The phrase sons of God is used four times in the OT and seven times in the New Testament. Every time sons of God is used it describes followers, believers and worshipers of God. (Genesis 6:2, 4; Job 1:6; Job 38:7; Hosea 1:10; John 1:12; Romans 8:14, 8:19 Gal 4:6; I John 3:12)

Those sons of God in Job 1:6; 2:1 that presented themselves before the Lord are followers of God just as Moses followed and worshipped God and was called of God to present himself before Him on mount Sinai, Exodus 34:2. Read Job 1:6 again. It says Satan came also among them when they went to present themselves before the Lord. This means Satan was there like he is with all of Gods children to try and buffet them. If you go back to vs. 5 you read that it was Job who sent his sons (sons of God) to go and be in the presence of the Lord that God would sanctify them. Satan, being a spirit that Job's sons could not see came among them as a buffer trying to interfere with God sanctifying them. When God asked Satan where he came from he said from going to and fro in the earth and from walking up and down in it.

This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created. And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died. Genesis 5:1-5



Actually Genesis 5 serves as context for Genesis 6, and proves that the sons of God in Genesis 6 were angels and not men.


No where in the Old Testament are men referred to as sons of God, especially in the genealogy in Genesis 5.


With the exception of Adam, because Adam was created by God, men were called sons of men, not sons of God.


Only do we find in the New Testament that men who are born again are called sons of God because we are born of God and are His offspring.


How can a man and a woman reproduce a son of God?


Therefore men were called sons of men in the Old Testament.

Given that no biblical expert accepts the book of enoch as anything but a late fake why are you wasting your time reading it?
It raises the question are you aware of the Spirits leading?

God is truth and has nothing to do with fakes like the book of enoch.

If you break down Genesis 6:1-8 You can see that those sons of God were not angels as angels are spirit and can not procreate nor are given in marriage, Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25. 1Corinthians 15:39, 40 states that men are men, animals are animals, fish are fish and angels are angels. There is no scripture which would even remotely lead us to believe angels had sex with women or that Giants were born of them.
In 1Sam.17:4
It states that Goliath was 6 Cubits and a span.
A cubit is still being disputed, ranging between 21 and 25 inches.
A span is half a cubit, or about 10 1/2 inches.
Thus,
This makes Goliath, about 14 feet tall.
I love ya, FHG, but by combining ungodly MEN to Godly MEN, does not make one 14 ft tall.
DNA has no spiritual reference.
Even today we have unbelievers and believers alike, that do not bear children that would be 14 ft tall.

I don't know how they did it, sex, artificial insemination , what ever,
They are way beyond our years..
What does one really know about the spiritually realm, another dimension?
I'm sure, we will get all our questions answered one day..

If you would notice in Gen.6:9
Noah was perfect in his generations.

Generation, Strong's # 8435 meaning descent, birth, history.
From #3205 meaning to beget, birth, declare pedigrees...

Noah was perfect in his pedigrees, he had not mixed with these sons of God, angels.

We are talking about pedigrees.
Nothing to do with the Godly and ungodly, even though he was a just man.

A cubit is the measuring from the tip of the middle finger to the elbow and a span is the measuring from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the little finger. Depending on the length of both this would make Goliath between eight or nine feet tall.

Goliath's mother was Orpah from Moab who was the daughter-in-law of Naomi and sister-in-law of Ruth. Orpah father was Eglon, king of Moab who oppressed Israel. His father was Chilion the son of Elimelech and Naomi who were Moabites.

What makes one a giant is a hereditary pituitary disorder that causes acromegaly or gigantism. The parents can be of average height just like that of dwarfism.

This website below explains the Nephilim that includes Goliath and Og.

You said:i guess we study and look into things differently, keep on doing you, as for me I like to know what the world is referencing off of.

I so agree with this as there are way to many traditional teachings that do not line up with scripture, but woven in to prove a theory.

We know by reading the first book of Enoch that he wrote about angels having sex with women that produced giants. Giants were in the land before the flood and after the flood and even today as one being rather tall in height averaging seven feet or taller. I believe he wrote of this from a traditional theory handed down to him.

On another note, it seems like Enoch wrote in parts and possibly someone else in other parts as it reads like two people wrote the book of Enoch.

Guess everyone has their own resources.
Mine came from a study Bible.
But, there has been some skeletons uncovered, that were 13 to 14 ft tall.

I will be recording a chapter on Enoch That wonderfully explains the book and the possibilities. I will play it on TDCradio.com in the near future. I have been busy learning new programs to run the station.

My only source is from the KJV and I have to stand by those scriptures I gave in post #21. I found that website yesterday when I was searching the length of a cubit and the length of a span and found it interesting.

I'm sure there are skeletons of that size, but yet the hereditary pituitary disorder that causes acromegaly or gigantism, there is also skeletal dysplasias that causes dwarfism.

This subject has been debated for probably centuries and one just has to draw their own conclusions.

I look forward to hearing it. When you get time read the book of Tobit as it's a great teaching. I'm going to read through Judith and then the Maccabees next.
