Bible Truth & Prophecy | Genesis 6 - Who are the Sons of God
BTP Video Series1

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 beautiful; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3 And Yahweh 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.

4 There were Nephilim 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 of the age, men of renown.

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.

6 And it repented Yahweh that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

~Genesis 6:1-6


Who are the Sons of God?

We know they are NOT immortal angels because they were marrying. Jesus said that angels do NOT marry (Matthew 22:30)

Back in Genesis 4, we are told after Seth was born, that men began to Call upon The Name Yahweh.

Literally in the Hebrew: they “Called themselves by The Name Yahweh”.

These men knew and worshiped the True and Living God. We find throughout scripture, men such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and the prophets all “Called upon the Name Yahweh”.


The “Sons of God” is a Title given to those of the “seed of the woman” (Gen.3:15), that is, those who are following after Godly things of the Spirit.


How do we prove this?

Answer: With the bible


Here’s a few examples:

“That YOU may be blameless and harmless, the SONS OF GOD, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world..” (Philipians 2:15)

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the SONS OF GOD.” (Romans 8:14)


Behold, what manner of Love has the Father bestowed upon us, that WE should be called the SONS OF GOD: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.

Beloved, now are WE the SONS OF GOD, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he (Christ) shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is”. (1 John 3:1-2)

The Sons of God is just a Title, it can actually be MEN & WOMEN

Who are the Daughters of Men?

This also is a Title given to those of the line of Cain named in Gen.4, that went away from God.

These are the people, MEN & WOMEN, who follow after the mind of the flesh; the seed of the serpent.

In the book of Malachi, we are told that “Judah dealt treacherously” and they have “profaned the Holiness of Yahweh” by marrying “THE DAUGHTER of a strange god.” ~(Malachi 2:11)

This means in Malachi’s Day, long after the flood, Judah who were supposed to be Holy (“separate”) were MARRYING people of other religions.

This same thing was happening in Noah’s day. The Sons of God were falling away from the True and Living God to intermarrying with the daughters of men, and the whole earth became corrupt, because of this God brought the Great Flood. (Genesis 6:7)

We are told in scripture that the Eklessia (the church) is the bride of Christ. This principle is explained in Ephesians 5:23-32. The Eklessia is obviously not only women but men too, but this is it’s title.

In the same manner there is also a woman described in scripture, an anti-type of the eklessia, who went astray. She is a woman who sits on many waters and is called the “Mother of all Harlots” who is “drunk with the blood of the saints.” (Revelation 17:1-6)

This is not an actual woman but refers to a political/religious system composed of by people.


There are 2 classes of people in the world

The Seed of the Woman = those that follow God’s Ways of the Spirit (Sons of God)

The seed of the serpent = those who follow the ways of the Flesh (Daughters of men)

In Noah’s day these 2 classes of people were intermarrying and corrupting the whole earth, till the point where God destroyed everyone except eight people in the Ark.

Likewise, Paul warns us today:

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath Righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has Light with darkness?15 And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that Believeth with an unbeliever?16 And what agreement has the Temple of God with idols? for you are the Temple of the Living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate….

~2 Cor.6:14-17
