Part 1. The Origin of Satan And His Angels. The Lord Jesus Christ, Plus ... Demons And The Giants Of The Old Testament And Their Origin... Who Were Their forefathers?

1. If the readers desire to have a part in the Lord's work as soul workers, and soul winners, it would be great for them to begin their own tract ministry by down loading our messages and send or give copies to others. What could be more important for you as an ambassador for Christ than to support the Body of Christ in this way? See { 2- Corinthians 5:18-20 }. The messages are already written, so why not pass them on to others? As to the writers belief and doctrine, we are strictly Biblical! We adhere to no denominational beliefs unless what they teach is taken from the true Word of God and taught in the correct context. We believe that we are to be busy proclaiming the truths for the present age of grace, in view of the soon coming of our Lord.

2. We believe in - [ 1 ]: The verbal inspiration of the Word of God { 2- Timothy 3:16 }.

No. 2: The Deity of Jesus Christ, and the Trinity of the Godhead { Titus 2:13; - & - 2 - Corinthians 13:14 }.

No. 3: The total depravity of man, and everlasting punishment of those who reject Christ { Romans Ch. 3; - John 3:36; - & - Revelation Ch. 20:15 }.

No. 4: Redemption by the blood of Christ, and salvation by grace, not of works { Titus 3:5; - & - Ephesians 2:8-9 }.

No. 5: Everlasting life and the security of the Christian { John 10:29 }.

No. 6: The personality and everlasting punishment of Satan { Job Ch. 1; - & - Revelation Ch. 20 }.

No. 7: The imminent Rapture [ Resurrection ] of the Body of Christ, followed by the great 7 year Tribulation Period and the literal Millennial Reign of Christ on this earth { 1- Thessalonians 4:16-18; - 1 - Corinthians 15:50-55; - & - Revelation Ch. 20:1-6 }.

3. The reader will notice also that we have put words in parenthesis in the various Bible verses, this is done to help the student have a better understanding of the old King James language which is often a little bewildering to some folks who are not use to that kind of speech. Therefore, please bear with us as we teach the message. A good idea would be to read your King James Bible along with each verse we have quoted. It is also very important for the student to look up all the added Bible texts that we have referred to in the Message. This will give the reader much added information! The reader will also notice that we have repeated several verses here and there in our message and of course we do this to bring out a better understanding of the message. Another thing we should mention is that when we copy a verse from the Bible we will change much of the spelling from the archaic King James language to the modern way of spelling. Such as . . .

4. "searcheth - to 'searches,' . . . thy - to 'your,' standeth - to 'stands,' . . . knoweth- to 'knows,' . . . maketh - to 'makes,' . . . nay -to 'no,' . . . bringeth - to 'bring or brings,' . . . hath - to 'has or have,' . . . saith - to 'says,' . . . unto - to- 'to,' . . . doeth - to 'does,' . . . wherefore - to 'therefore,' . . . thee - t o 'the,' . . . justifieth - to 'justify,' . . . helpeth - to 'help,' . . . liveth - to 'lives,' . . . ever - to 'always,' . . . hitherto - to 'even yet - or thus far,' . . . Behold - 'take notice,' . . . heart - to 'mind or intellect,' . . . whereunto - to 'the fact is or it was to this end that,' . . . elect - to 'chosen,' . . . quickens - t o 'make alive,' . . . Lo- to 'take notice,' . . . sorer- to 'surer,' . . . saving - to 'except,' . . . Woe - to 'grievous orr distress to you,' . . . and etc. None of this will take away from the true meaning of the original text."

6. Commentary . . . In the Scriptures, as well as in the writings of various authors, the Giants have been spoken of and their deeds have been described until many folks have ask the question "who were those Giants and where did they come from?" According to the Scriptures, Angels were created long before the Lord created the Heavens or the Earth. When the Lord Jehovah spoke to the Prophet Job He asked . . .

=========================

7. { V. 4 } Scripture: "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if you have understanding.

8. { V. 5 }: Who has laid the measures thereof, if you know? or who has stretched 'the [ measuring ] line' upon it?

9. { V. 6 }: Where upon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the cornerstone thereof;

10. { V. 7 }: When the morning stars [ Angels ] sang together, and all the sons of 'God [ Angels' ] shouted for joy? { Job 38:4-7 }." { See Job 1:6-7; - Genesis 6:2; - & - Jude 1:13 }."

=========================

11. Commentary . . . Always when Sons of God are spoken of in the Old Testament, they are referred to as angelic beings. The word "EL" is the singular form of God, but El-o-him, is the plural form of the triune Godhead, the "Three in One, Father, Son and Holy Spirit of God." And this is the meaning of what is spoken in { Genesis 1:1 }. We read that when the triune Godhead planned the creation of this earth and decided its measurements, that the Angels of God stood by shouting with joy. These Sons of God necessarily had to be Angels because up to this time there had been no man created, nor had the Lord even created the Earth!

12. The point must be emphasized, that when the Lord creates anything at all He creates it in a perfect manner for His own glory. After creating the first earth, God obviously expected His Angels who had rejoiced over His creation to have a great deal to do in helping the people He planned to create. We find that Lucifer, a high ruling Angelic Cherubim, had other ideas about what would follow the Lord's created subjects. But, we are taught from God's Word that Jehovah had other plans for mankind and also for Satan. Naturally Satan was overruled in his mind and actions by the Lord because of his Jealousy and Covetousness. We later find in the Scriptures hat Satan was a type of the future King of Tyrus and was spoken of as the following states . . .

=========================

13. { V. 11 } Scripture: "Moreover the Word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

14. { V. 12 }: Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the King of Tyrus [ Satan ], and say to him, thus says the Lord God; you [ past tense ] sealed up the sum [ i.e., you were the full measure and pattern of exactness . . . giving the finishing touch to all that constitutes completeness . . . ], full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

15. { V. 13 }: You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was in your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold, [ notice that ten things are mentioned here and ten is the Bible number for completion. The verse goes on to say ]: the workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.

16. { V. 14 }: You are the "anointed 'cherub [ Cherubim' ] that cover s [ with over-shadowing wings." H e was also to become Satan the resister ]; and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

========

17. Commentary . . . The Mountain of God, was like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stones upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai. { See Exodus 4:27; - & - 24:10}. Lucifer at that time was without sin and he was the Guardian protector over the seat of God's authority. 'Satan [ Lucifer' ], had occupied a special place of prominence in guarding the throne of God but pride was his downfall, thus he became Satan. The Bible student will remember that the Kings of the O.T. were always anointed before they became Kings over Israel. In Old Testament symbolism, the mountain of God refers to the seat of God's Government in the earth. { See Isaiah 2:1-4; -14:12-17; - & - Matthew 12:26 }. { Seee also Ezekiel 10:21 }. [ Cherubim's have 4 wings and 4 faces whereas Seraphim's have six wings. { See also Isaiah 6:2; - & - 14:12-23 }.

========

18. { V. 15 }: You was 'perfect [ and blameless' ] in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity [ sin ] was found in you.

19. { V. 16 }: By the multitude of 'your merchandise [ your great wealth through the abundance of your commerce' ] they have filled the midst of you 'with violence [ internal turmoil' ] and you have sinned: therefore I will [ future tense ] cast you as profane [ like any common lost sinner ] out of the mountain of God [ the place where God's throne is ]: and I will destroy you, O covering [ over shadowing ] "cherub, [ Cherubim" ] from the midst of the stones of fire.

20. { V. 17 }: Your 'heart [ mind' ] was [ proud and ] lifted up [ filled with pride and ] because of your beauty, you [ have ] corrupted your wisdom by reason 'of your brightness [ and for the sake of your splendor' ]: therefore, I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before Kings, that they may behold you { Ezekiel 28:11-17 }."

=========================

21. Commentary . . . Satan has not yet been cast down to the ground. His casting down to the earth will take place during the great Tribulation Period { See Revelation 12:9 }, He will be exposed at Christ's Second Coming as a helpless deceiving potentate before the curious gaze of Kings. These Scriptures give us the how and why as to the fall of Satan. He was moved with pride and jealously, he rebelled against God, seeking to be as mighty as his own Creator. According to the above verse in Revelation, Satan misled one third of the Angels that were created the same time he was. They became outcast from God and the whole host of these beings will be cast down to the earth after the Resurrection of the Body of Christ takes place. At the time the Lord spoke the above words, He knew all about Satan's future sins. There is no doubt, Satan has led all the inhabitants of the first earth into rebellion with him against the Lord. Then he lost the earth which became "without form and void," desolate and empty, ruined by the fierce anger of God, { see Genesis 1:1-2 }.

22. The prophet Jeremiah brings to our attention one of the greatest testimonies concerning the past age which we believe concerns the first earth and its destruction. We believe that this was the time in which that particular earth became without form and void. In { Jeremiah 4:1 }, we can see that when the nation Israel came into being many centuries after the great Flood, they chose to worship false idols which at that time Jehovah God calls and tells them to . . .

=========================

23. { V. 1 } Scripture: "If you will return, O Israel, says the Lord, return unto Me: and if you will put away your abominations [ false gods ] out of My sight, then 'shall you not remove [ stray or waver,' if you will do this, you shall not be removed from your land ].

24. { V. 2 }: And [ if ] you shall swear [ as ], The Lord lives, in truth, in judgment [ and justice ], and in righteousness [ uprightness in every area and relation ]; and [ then ] the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him shall they glory { Jeremiah 4:1-2}." =========================

25. Commentary . . . It is clear that this chapter concerns the future chastisement of Israel for her national sins. We find in many chapters of our Bible, parenthetical verses which relate to other subjects, the same as these four parenthetical verses inserted into this chapter. As the prophet testifies as to the nation being chastised in the future by God for idol worship, he suddenly gazes into the past and reminds the nation of another time when a world evidently gone mad had also, not only been chastised but had actually been covered with water because of their following gods other than God Jehovah. We notice that all four verses begin with "I beheld." Thus "I beheld," past tense. This is mentioned 4 times and any Bible Numerology student will quickly understand that the biblical number "4" stands for the creation of something, because it is the number for creation!

=========================

26. { V. 23 } Scripture: "I beheld [ in a vision of the past ] the earth, and, lo, it was without form and void [ laid waste ]; and the heavens, and they had no light.

27. { V. 24 }: I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

28. { V. 25 }: I beheld, and lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

29. { V. 26 }: I beheld, and, lo, the 'fruitful place [ land' ] was [ became ] a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down [ and laid waste ] at the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger [ past tense ], { Jeremiah 4:23-26 }."

=========================

30. Commentary . . . We believe that even an unlearned Bible student can very easily comprehend that these verses are associated with the destruction of the first earth by the Noaic Flood. There had been birds, men, and cities upon the earth of old before its destruction. One can find no better proof in God's Word, than the above Scriptures, that after many days of earth's desolation, God decided to recreate this ruined earth. At the beginning Jehovah had created the earth, animals and people In six 24 hour days, and then its destruction He re-established and reconditioned the formless earth of old and caused it to once again be repopulated.

31. God at first having handed over the reins of a perfect earth to a sinless man named Adam, and a woman called Eve that He had formed out of the dust of the earth, now laid out a different plan. But as to the first earth, we can but wonder and imagine what envy and also the discouragement that had been felt in the mind of Satan when he saw the new world and its earth turned over to a mere man of flesh and blood. Especially, was his jealousy aroused when he saw that Jehovah had created a beautiful wife from the rib of the man. A sinless wife that could bare children for the man in order to populate the earth with human beings. At least, it must have been in Satan's mind that mankind would be far inferior to the angelic host in which he was a part of.

32. There had never been any woman created for Angels, Angels were created in mass as grownup male species. There were no tinny cherubs that were to grow into adults, but were created as adults the same as were Adam and Eve. They were to be called "Sons of God," by creation. They were to be childless individuals and were to have no offspring either in Heaven or upon the earth! Lucifer, who had become Satan, the adversary of the man Adam and of Adam's posterity, therefore laid a plan of his own. A plan to destroy Adam's wife by getting her to disobey her Creator by deceiving her and getting her to eat the forbidden fruit of the tree of good and evil, thus, causing her to eventually die.

34. Satan lost in his strategy but he still had further plans. In later years, he laid out a different strategy. The devil's plan was to get many of the Angels who had followed him in his sinful life and rebellion against God to leave their present way of life and in turn take the daughters of earthly men as their wives. Thus far, we have found that the first earth, even though created perfect had been destroyed in a great deluge because of sin. This is the first mention of the Lord destroying something that He Himself had created in a perfect manner that was good, { Genesis 1:9-10 }. Therefore, now we find the world being taken over by deceitful Angels in order to deceive sinful men. The Lord knowing the future, had another plan in His mind. This plan was to be carried out by a man called Noah which would build an Ark whereas only Noah and his immediate family would exist after God would destroy the earth with water.

The Existence Of The Devil Has Been Denied Many Times . . .

35. Commentary . . . There have been and still are people who claim that a sinful devil is only in the mind of various individuals. In other words, he doesn't even exist! They say that such a person is only a principle of evil. That this evil is only a thing in the imagination of certain people. Many claim that Satan's existence is determined by the opinions of some folks who only arrived at this understanding from some devious writings in some Bible that they themselves do not believe in. Naturally, Satan uses such doubters and false teachers to discredit God's Word.

=========================

36. Scripture: "Be sober, 'be vigilant [ and cautious, well- balanced . . . temperate, sober-minded at all times' ]; because your adversary [ and enemy ] the Devil [ roams around ], as a roaring lion [ in fierce hunger and ], walks about, seeking [ those ] whom he may devour { 1- Peter 5:8 }." { See Revelation 20:1-3 }.

=========================

37. Commentary . . . The above could not be speaking of that which concerns only a "principle of evil." As we read the various texts, we find that Satan is called by many different names. Serpent, Satan, Belial, Devil, Dragon, Beelzebub, Adversary, and by many other names we could mention. He is known as a great Deceiver, a Prince of the Powers of the air, the God of this world age, a celestial potentate { See 2- Corinthians 4:4 }. He was an exalted Angel who dwelt in the Heavenly garden of Almighty God because it is said of him, that he lived on the Holy Mount of God and this would not have been said of any earthly place of habitation. Much of this can be understood by studying { Ezekiel Ch. 28:11-19 }, where a foreview of the future Antichrist is made known to the prophet. By reading the text you will notice that Antichrist is called the "King of Tyrus," and is pictured as an incarnation of the Devil. Notice that a description is given which concerns Lucifer in his original glory from which he fell. Nowhere in history has any such King of Tyrus been known to exist. The glorious title of Lucifer and his fall from grace is spoken of in the O-T. Notice what the people are saying after the great Tribulation Period has ended and the reign of Christ has begun . . .

=========================

38. { V. 7 } Scripture: "The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing. [ Millennial peace ].

39. { V. 8 }: Yes, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is come up against us.

40. { V. 9 }: Hell [ in Sheol ] from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming It [ has ] stirred up the [ 'lost ] dead [ those souls in Hades' ] for you, even all the chief ones of the earth: it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

========

41. Commentary . . . This speaks not only of Satan but of all the wicked leaders whom have reigned on the earth in the past. The word "dead" here is "Rephaim" a Hebrew word for "Giant." This can also refer to wicked Angels and Demons. Concerning Satan himself. . . .

========

42. { V. 10 }: All they shall speak and say to you, are you also become weak as we? are you become like unto us?

43. { V. 11 }: Your pomp is brought down to 'the grave [ his home in Hell' ], and the noise of your viols: the 'worm [ memory' ] is spread under you, and 'the worms [ all your other memories' ] cover you.

44. { V. 12 }: "How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how are you cut down to the ground [ i.e., why was it that you were cast out of heaven to the earth ], which did weaken the nations!

========

45. Commentary . . . Lucifer in this instance means "the bright one," see Christ's similar description in { Luke 10:18; - 1- Timothy 3:6; - & - Revelation 20:3 }.

========

46. { V. 13 }: For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

47. { V. 14 }: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high { Isaiah 14:7-14 }."

=========================

48. Commentary . . . Five phrases beginning with "I will" describes Satan's sin. He wished to occupy Heaven, the abode of God Himself. To exalt his throne above the stars of God. Angels are spoken of as Stars { See Revelation 12:3-4 }. He wanted to rule over all the Angels. North, in heathen literature, indicated the abode of the gods; thus, Satan was ambitious to govern the universe as the 'council [ Congregation' ] of Babylonian gods supposedly did. He wanted the glory that belonged to God alone. Concerning "clouds," see { Isaiah 19:1; - & - Exodus 16:10 }. The Devil's entire goal was to be like the 'most High [ Hebrew . . . Elyon' ]. { See Genesis 14:18 }.

49. Another interpretation of these verses go like this . . . "The understanding of three words Satan uses seems to lend some light, the 'Mount' is the throne of God. The Congregation is Israel, and the side of the north may be a reference to the crucifixion which occurred on the north of Jerusalem and to the earthly authority over Israel which belongs to Christ as Redeemer and King. In such an interpretation it may be seen that there was a purpose in Lucifer to secure an earthly throne, that such a throne now exist is declared in { Revelation 2:13 } . . . note here the word 'seat' should be throne." The reader must be careful which interpretation he decides upon!

=========================

50. { V. 15 } Scripture: "Yet you shall be brought down to Hell, to the sides of the pit [ Sheol in Hades, into the region of the wicked dead ]. [ Read our message concerning "Sheol." ]

51. { V. 16 }: They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, is this the [ self made God ] man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake the kingdoms:

52. { V. 17 }: That made the world as a wilderness, and "destroyed the cities thereof " [ by causing war, pestilence, hunger and diseases ]; that opened not the house of 'his prisoners [ to let them return home' ]?

========

53. Commentary . . . These prisoners mentioned above could refer to those whom Satan held captive such as the Jews that have been tormented and held captive in foreign countries, but Christ will come to set them free. { See Luke 4:18 }.

========

54. { V. 18 }: All the Kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory [ such as a grand mausoleum ], every one in his own house [ sepulcher. ]

55. { V. 19 }: But you are cast out of your grave [ not that he had lain in a grave and was then cast out of it, but "cast out without a grave" ] like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

56. { V. 20 }: You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned, { Isaiah 14:15-20 }."

=========================

57. Commentary . . . We have a two fold meaning here, Satan and Sennacherib, a wicked King of Assyria who was a strong type of Satan, he also wanted to rule the world. Notice in { V. 12 } his name was called Lucifer which means "son of the morning." This was a most wonderful and glorious title for him when he was created. Thus, when this world was made "the morning stars" who were Angels also sang together and shouted with joy { See Job 38:7 }." It should be noted that in { Isaiah 14:4 } Satan is referred to as the "King of Babylon." The truth is, there never was such a King of Babylon in human flesh as the one who is described in this text. Therefore, this is, we believe, a future prediction of Satan when he will reign while the one world ruler, the future Antichrist is also reigning over the earth during the Tribulation Period.

58. The reader should read and study what our Bible has to say concerning Babylon and the Babylonian system. As we have taught before, Satan still has his abode in the first and second Heavens and has access to God. But, the time will come when he will be cast out of the Heavens down to the earth. Another reference in { V. 20 } above where it states that : "you shall not be joined with them in burial," can be applied to the Antichrist and his false prophet who will not be buried in a literal grave, but will be cast into the 'Lake of fire' while yet alive! This will take place at Messiah's Second Coming, see { Revelation 19:20 }.

=========================

59. { V. 7 } Scripture: "And there was war in Heaven: 'Michael [ the arch Angel' ] and his Angels fought against the dragon [ Satan ]; and the dragon fought and 'his angels [ fought against God's Angels' ],

========

60. Commentary . . . This will likely occur at the mid point of the Tribulation Period. Michael is the only Angel designated as an archangel in the Bible, { Jude V. 9 }.

========

61. { V. 8 }: And [ Satan and his Angels ] prevailed not; neither was there place [ for Satan and all his angels ] found any more in Heaven.

62. { V. 9 }: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceived the whole world: he was cast out 'into the earth [ future tense' ]; and his angels were cast out with him.

========

63. Commentary . . . Notice two of Satan's activities in these verses: to deceive the world and to accuse the brethren. The Christians defense against Satan is [ 1 ]: to bank on the merits of the death and Resurrection of Christ, [ 2 ]: to be active in witnessing, and [ 3 ]: to be willing to make any sacrifice, including death { V. 11 }. { See Revelation 13:14; - & - Ezekiel 28:17}.

========

64. { V. 10 }: And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come Salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom [ the dominion and reign ] of our God, and the power [ sovereignty and authority ] of His Christ [ the Messiah ]: for [ Satan ] the accuser of our brethren [ Satan is the one who keeps bringing before God the Father, charges against Children of God here on the earth and he ] is cast down, [ he was the one who accused Job and others in the past and ] which accused them before God day and night. { See Job 1: 9-11}. [ All Heaven rejoices, Satan's main ministry is to accuse the Child of God, he is a slanderer in Heaven ].

65. { V.11 } And they [ who were saved during the Tribulation Period ] overcame [ and conquered ] him [ Satan ] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

========

66. Commentary . . . Even though they were killed for their testimony and witnessing about the Lord Jesus, they still went on witnessing until they were killed. This is similar to what took place during the inquisition in the dark ages. It is still today taking place throughout this world, people are being slaughtered by murderers because they will NOT refuse to give their Christian testimony to others. They would rather die a martyrs death than deny their Lord Jesus Christ who paid the price for them with His blood.

========

67. { V. 12 }: Therefore rejoice, you Heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.

68. { V. 13 }: And when 'the dragon [ that old devil' ] saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman [ Israel ] who brought forth the man child [ The Lord Jesus Christ ], { Revelation 12:7-13 }." { See Isaiah 44:23; - & - 49:13 }.

=========================

69. Commentary . . . And there shall be great trouble upon the earth because of the devil's anger, and he will exercise his anger through the 'beast [ Antichrist' ]. { See Revelation 13:2-8 }. Satan, as we before stated, has had thousands of years to memorize the Bible. It should be realized that when the Angels were created, they were created in a perfect manner and obviously they were given photographic memories. He knows exactly what the Scripture says about himself. So, that time will come when he is cast to the earth, he will be well aware of the fact that he has just 3 - & -1/2 years to exist on the earth. At the close of the Tribulation Period, the Beast and the False prophet will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire, then, an Angel from Heaven will seize Satan and bind him with a great chain and cast him into a great bottomless pit, where he will remain for a thousand years, { Revelation 20:1-3 }. At the end of the thousand years he will be turned loose for a short time, and then with his angels he will be cast into the Lake of Fire which was prepared in the past, there they will remain forever { See Revelation 20:7-10; - & - Matthew 25:41 }.

End 0f Part 1 0f Giants. Continued 0n Part 2 0f This Subject.

=================================================================================================

Part 2. Before The Flood Of Noah . . .

1. Commentary . . . In the end of the Genesis Period some startling events occurred. The world had progressed from Adam's creation onward to the time just before the great Flood took place. Times became more godless and sinful until the entire civilization was contaminated with the disease of unbelief in God or anything that was honest and good.

=========================

2. { V. 1 } Scripture: "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

3. { V. 2 }: That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were 'fair [ pretty' ]; and they took them wives of all which they chose { Genesis 6:1-2 }."

=========================

4. Commentary . . . Ninety Nine percent of all Ministers, Theologians and other Bible scholars will tell you that the women these sons of God took as wives were all of the daughters of the carnal wicked Cain family of that day. But, there is a far deeper interpretation involved here and involves much more than is generally taught by the average Bible Teacher. The words "daughters of men" actually include the daughters who are descended both from Cain and from Adam's righteous son Seth. The words sons of God are not speaking of flesh and blood men that were descended from Adam as most teachers teach. These sons of God were not of the human race.

5. The title "Sons of God" doesn't have the same meaning in the O-T as it has in the New. In the New Testament the words apply to those who have become adopted Sons of God by the new birth { John 1:12; - Romans 8:14-16; - Galatians 4:6; - & - 1- John 3:1-2 }}. In the O.T. the words apply to Angels, and is mentioned five times, twice in { Genesis 6:2-4 }, and three times in { Job 1:6; - 2:1; - & - 38:7 }. A "Son of God" refers to a person who has been brought into existence by a creative act performed by God Himself. Scripture proves beyond all doubt that this is what happened when the whole host of Angels were created and of course, Adam was created in this same manner . . .

=========================

6. Scripture: "Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God { Luke 3:38 }." { See Ruth 4:18-22; - 1- Chronicles 1:1-4; - 24-28; - & - 2:1-15 }.

=========================

7. Commentary . . . On the other hand, Adam's natural descendants were not created in the same manner as Adam. Adam was created in the likeness of his Creator { Genesis 5:1 }, whereas, Adam's descendants were all born through cohabitation in the likeness of Adam. Therefore, all mankind born after Adam were born by natural generation and are the sons of men. It is only by being spiritually born again, which is termed as a new creation, that one may become a Son of God in the New Testament sense. { See John 3:3-7 }.

=========================

8. Scripture: "And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth { Genesis 5:3 }."

=========================

9. Commentary . . . From this it is clear that "sons of God" mentioned in { Genesis 6:2-4 } could not be the sons of either Cain or of Seth because they were only unregenerate men. While, the "Sons of God" were of a superior race, in other words, Angels. To this, however, objection is brought forth stating that Angels do not marry nor are they given in marriage { Luke 20:27-36 }. Therefore, they must be sexless and it would be impossible for them to cohabit with other Angels or with human beings. Naturally this writer does not agree with this kind of doctrine.

10. Angels were all created subjects who were not subject to death as we humans are. Thus, there have never been any reason for them to marry and reproduce children in order to keep their line from extermination. There is nothing in the Scriptures that signify that Angels were created sexless and could never have the power of procreation. Our Bible proves that Angels can make themselves known by appearing in the form of men. They can partake of liquid to drink and can eat food just like we humans do { See Genesis 18:1-8 }. Let us not forget that these Angels in the form of men appeared to many women and took them as wives! To prove what we have brought out is true, we should turn to the Bible text for confirmation.

=========================

11. { V. 4 } Scripture: "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;

12. { V. 5 }: 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 { 2- Peter 2:4-5 }."

=========================

13. { V. 6 } Scripture: "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the [ Great White Throne ] judgment of the great day.

14. { V. 7 }: Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, 'and the [ three other ] cities' about them in like manner, giving themselves over to 'fornication [ and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversity' ], and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

15. { V. 8 }: Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh [ by corrupting their bodies, they ], despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

16. { V. 9 }: Yet Michael the archangel, when contending [ judicially argued ] with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, [ and ] dared not [ presume to ] bring against him a railing accusation [ of condemnation against Satan ], but [ simply ] said, The Lord rebuke you. { See Zechariah 3:2 }.

17. { V. 10 }: But these speak evil [ they revile, scoff and sneer ] of those things which they know not [ i.e., of anything they do not happen to be acquainted with and do not understand ]: but what they know naturally [ that which they know by mere instinct, like ], as brute [ irrational ] beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves [ and are destroyed ] { Jude Vs. 6-10 }."

=========================

18. Commentary . . . They were a special class of Angels who have been imprisoned for committing fornication, for going after strange flesh before the great Flood took place. This proves without a doubt that these Sons of God were Angels and since they committed fornication, this means that they had no marriage contract between themselves and the women they took as common law wives. This sin probably went on for several hundred years before the ark was built by Noah. God's Word confirms the fact also that the children of these Angels were a race of giants, mighty men of renown { Genesis 6:4 }. These Angels took on strange flesh, the flesh of these human women was much different than the substance the Angels were made of.

19. Down through the last two thousand years to this very time, both Christians and non Christians have married Christians and also lost unbelievers but never during that time have their children been such monstrosities as were the children of those wicked Angels. This is no doubt the reason all the giants are non-existent today. The union of Humans and Angels were ungodly and of an unnatural character as is proven by the above text. These people could not be permitted to exist on the earth, only sin and trouble could result from such an abnormal race. So the Lord put a stop to this by bringing on the great Flood so that this unclean sinful union and other such uncleanness would stop.

20. The Flood in many ways changed the shape of the earth, it changed the life span of human beings and did away with the Garden of Eden. The Ante-diluvian Earth no longer existed. We find very little proof of the existence of various nations being on the old earth. Therefore, there must have been just a huge conglomeration of individual families who lived in small cities and wherever else they chose to live? The antediluvians were evidently different in many ways from the majority of the nations that came into existence after the Flood took place. The Apostle Paul in { Acts 17:30 } calls those times "The times of ignorance," which we can see is contrasted with the present times. We are told in the same verse that at that time, "God winked at" and overlooked much of the things that took place. And as we are aware, a great change would have to take place later on! [ There were cities before the flood, { see Genesis 4:16-17 - & - Jeremiah 4:23-27 }.

The Fallen Ones, The Nephilim . . .

=========================

21. { V. 3 } Scripture: "And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with men, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

========

22. Commentary . . . The reference is to the Holy Spirit striving in the world and judging or executing judgment on mankind for sinfulness. After the Flood, the life span of man would be lowered to what it is today. [ We talk about this more explicitly in our message of "The Days Of Noah. ]

========

23. { V. 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 [ the daughters of men' ] bare children 'to them [ the wicked Angels' ], the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

24. { V. 5 }: And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his 'heart [ mind' ] was only evil continually, { Genesis 6:3-5 }."

=========================

25. Commentary . . . This can be said of many people today, their thoughts are continually evil. When we read of wicked Angels fathering Giant children "in those days; and also after that," the Hebrew word for these Angels is "Nephilim" and means "The fallen Ones." Naturally some of these Angels even fell further when they left their home in the Heavenlies to dwell on the earth that they might take wives of human beings. Since these women were very fair, meaning beautiful, this was of course one of the things that took the Angels eye and caused them to leave the glories of the Heavens. The Giant children that were born of this union were nothing like the size of humans but were huge people who many would call "monstrous hybrids" and these words fit them very well.

26. The word "Nephilim" is again used in { Numbers 13:33 } referring of course to those Giants which the 12 spies observed in the land of Canaan when the Israelites were preparing to enter that land. Notice in { V. 4 } above, the words "and also after that," which is speaking of the time after the Flood when other wicked Angels were doing the same thing as the first group of Angels did before the Flood. Thus, we again find more Giants [ Nephilim ] present on the earth. It seems that Satan was trying to show the Lord how useless it had been to destroy the first Giants previously. But, as you know, Jehovah God had His plans for the future and Satan could only guess at what would take place.

27. The spies had told the other Israelites that according to the Giants size, they themselves were as grass hoppers { Numbers 13:33 }. No doubt the wicked people of that day were being used by Satan as he uses people today. So he likely made the people believe that by continuing the practice of producing Giants, this would bring forth a far superior race of people than what God had brought into being through Adam and Eve. This larger race would be much stronger and far superior and would populate and overrun the whole world with Satan naturally being the ruler over all of them. At least, we can see that this was what Satan had in his mind to do.

28. But, these Giants being so enormous in height and weight and they were not even human by nature, in fact, even though they had Giant bodies, they were without a human soul and spirit { See Jude V. 19 }. God's Word makes clear that He only is the father of spirits and no doubt, without the spirit produced by God and placed in man by Him, man could not live! You can be very sure that the Lord did not form any human spirits into the bodies of these Giants! As we also know, Jesus does place a human spirit into each human baby that is born on this earth.

=========================

29. Scripture: "The burden [ or oracle, the thing lifted up ] of the Word of the Lord for Israel, says the Lord, which stretches forth the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth, and 'forms the spirit of man within him' { Zechariah 12:1 }."

=========================

30. Commentary . . . Naturally we today do not understand all these things, but the day is approaching when we will see the Lord face to face and then we can converse with Him. Any question we wish to approach Him with, He will give us a satisfying answer, how wonderful that day will be! All we can do at this time is . . . through much prayer and study, is to try to find the answers to our questions in the Lord's Word. We do realize that there are at this time, many questions that go unanswered.

31. Do you suppose that those Giants who are like animals went into perdition with no soul or spirit? We believe that animals do have 'some type of soul [ life that is a living substance' ] and also a spirit but what kind we do not know. But, we do know that the spirit of life has to dwell in animals as well as in men, the soul is the natural life in all creatures! It is likely that there were millions upon millions of Giants upon the earth in times past. Since these Giants were neither man or animal, could it be that the spirits they had neither went into Heaven or into Hell, but are actually the Demons that have been present on the earth for millennia? Some will say that there could not have been enough Giants on the Adamic earth to produce the amount of demons that are present on the earth today, but how many demons have man counted? Also . . . could the Giants that were present on the first earth and in David's day, that we talked about at the beginning of our message have contained enough lost spirits to produce the amount of demons we have pestering us in this present age? Questions, Questions . . .?????

32. On the first earth, many of our scientist believe that millions of years before Adam, and even before the different ice ages, that there were huge animals on the earth. At this very time there are many foots-prints of the Tyrannosaurus in the same rock strata with Brontosaurus foot-prints. Yet according to some of them, these two pre-historic animals lived 30 million years apart. We have read that no 'mammoth or saber tooth tiger' is in evidence after the flood. Therefore, Noah didn't bring any of that type of pre-historic animals into the Ark. It is thought that during the various ice ages long before Adam, many of these animals were killed by some climatic event and at that time became extinct, there is evidence of this found in the glaciers in Siberia. Naturally we do "NOT" accept what those scientist teach because God's Word makes clear that the world was created in six literal 24 hour days six thousand years ago, and the Lord's Word is what we must accept!

33. When the first earth became formless and void { Genesis 1:1; - & - Jeremiah 4:23-26 } no doubt all life on the planet was destroyed except for the eight souls that were in the great Ark that Noah had constructed. But, in several parts of the world, especially in Alaska and Siberia, there is evidence of vegetation that was in abundance before the ice age. At one time there had been a much warmer climate, and now there is a great amount of evidence that these extinct animals existed there and are still being found by men who are interested in this type of study. It has also been proven that the coral found in the Arctic Ocean was at one time warm and that the whole body of water had been teeming with various kinds of marine life.

34. All the vast amount of coal and oil found today gives much evidence of the huge forest and animals that existed down through the pre-historic age. Mankind today owes a tremendous amount of thanks to the Lord for bringing the Ancient world into existence even though it became so sinful that God decided to destroy it in the huge Flood. In the land of the ancients, there was no doubt many huge Dinosaurs present, and along with them were Giants in the form of men. If we could get a glimpse of that stupendous age, we would be undoubtedly mystified. Scientist in resent years have made cast of . . . and have taken pictures of huge tracks that were once made in the Paluxy River bed near Glenrose, Texas. These tracks are still preserved in solid rock as evidence for anyone to observe.

35. Tracks of Dinosaurs such as the "Brontosaurs and Tyrannosaurus" have been found to be right along the side of Giant foot prints of man which had obviously been made at the same time. All those tracks down through time, had been covered up with silt and had solidified. Finally washouts caused by various storms uncovered these prints and exposed them so that anybody could and still can observe them. Some of the Giant footprints were 25 inches long and overlapped some of the Dinosaur tracks which prove that they were present at the same time the Dinosaurs were living there. Those Giants must have been at least 12 feet tall. The evolutionists find it confusing to explain how a humanoid creature could have been in evidence at the same time Dinosaurs existed on the earth! It is even more difficult for them to explain how these foot prints of prehistoric Giants were adjacent and even overlapped the tracks of the Dinosaur and in the same strata of rock. This writer is not going to say that there were no Dinosaurs present on the earth during Noah's day. No doubt many of them still existed, but, many of them were obviously drowned in the great Flood. [ Read our much larger 8 part message concerning "The Days Of Noah." ]

What about After Noah's flood?. . .

36. Commentary . . . We find that after the Flood had ended, evil was still prevalent on the earth through the thoughts and actions of the population. The sin against Noah by a family member, the building of the Tower of Babel and a great deal of other evidence was proof of this. The Egyptians and their cruelty toward the Israelites caused the Hebrew people to migrate from Egypt to the land of Canaan and they were commanded to destroy every vestige of the Canaanites men, women and even all the Canaanite Children. Knowing the sinful condition of these heathenistic people, the Lord wanted them completely destroyed. Did the Israelites obey the Lord? absolutely not. Had the Hebrews destroyed all the Canaanites and the Philistines, and yes, all the rest of the heathen that was in the land, the Lord would have given them the power to perform this act and would have been completely behind them! Had this command been carried out, no Giants would have existed in the land. By the Word of God, we find that even during King David's time and probably even after that, there were many Giants present, when they ceased to exist Scripture does not say.

37. The Hebrew people, even to this present time, believed that all Giants at the time of their death went to Hades. The Giants were very 'tall [ Gesenius' ]; and the 'Rephaim [ Giants' ] being gigantic in size were also Giants in performing sinful acts. It is obvious that from the very first, they were doomed to spend eternal life in the 'Lake of fire.' Many of the Hebrews often referred to the Giants after they had disappeared from view as "Ghosts" and this became a general term for them. The reason for this was because the Giants were fathered by Angels whom were spirit beings themselves. When we look at this in this light, could it be possible that their spirits became the Demons of today? and if so then what we have taught in the past is likely also true. . . . That demons can appear as Ghosts and are one and the same thing in many cases! Don't you think it interesting that the Hindus had a belief that there were two races, one "Suras and the other Asuras?"

38. It is also stated that one of the Greek's legends is that the "demigods" before the Flood were sons of the great gods and that the titan Giants sprang from the union between many of those in Heaven and many of the people that dwelled on the earth. { Genesis 6:4 }, "And also after that," [ after Noah's flood ], Satan again was using his age old tactics of using fallen Angels to corrupt the earth. In the days of Abraham and Lot [ his nephew ], there were 4 Kings who ruled in the land of Canaan hundreds of years after the flood. These Kings fought with some of the tribes of the Giants, such as the: "Rephaim in Ashteroth- karnaum, the Zuzims in Ham, the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim and the Horites in Seer. " Read { Genesis 14:5-6 }.

=========================

39. Scripture: "And the coast of Og King of Ba'shan, which was of the remnant of the [ Rephaim ] giants, that dwelt at Ash'ta-roth and at Ed'rei { Joshua 12:4 }."

=========================

40. Scripture "All the Kingdom of Og in Ba'shan, which reigned in Ash'ta-roth and in Ed'rei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out, { Joshua 13:12 }."

=========================

41. { V. 30 } Scripture: "And their coast was from Mahana'im, all [ through ] Ba'shan all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Ja'ir, which are in Bashan, threescore [ 60 ] cities:

42. { V. 31 }: And half Gil'ead, and Ash'ta-roth, and Ed'rei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Ba'shan, were pertaining [ allotted ] unto the children of Ma'chir the son of Manas'seh, even to the one half of the children of Machir by their families.

43. { V. 32 }: These are the countries which Moses did distribute for inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side of Jordan, by Jericho, eastward { Joshua 13:30-32 }."

=========================

44. Commentary . . . As we can see, the Giant, who was the King of Og, ruled over a pretty large piece of real-estate! Many of these Giants were called gods, lets see what happens to them . . .

=========================

45. Scripture: "O Lord our God, "other lords" beside You have had dominion over us: but by You only will we make mention of Your name. They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have You visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish, { Isaiah 26:13-14 }."

=========================

46. Commentary . . . This refers to the fact that hardly any body, including Bible students, remember that Giants were on the earth. Most folks think that the stories of Giants are fictitious.

=========================

47. { V. 5 } Scripture: "And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlao'mer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Reph'aims in Ash'teroth Karna'im, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the E'mims in Sha'veh Kiriatha'im,

48. { V. 6 }: And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-par'an which is by the wilderness { Genesis 14:5-6 }."

=========================

49. Commentary . . . The Giants . . . Rephaims, lived on both sides of the Jordan river. The Zuzims lived south of the Rephaims and east of the Jordan. The Emims were Giants who lived in the land of Moab, which is today in the nation of Jordan. The Horites lived in Mount Seir, south of the Dead Sea, a land later inhabited by the Edomites. As to the Amalekites mentioned in { V. 7 }, the country of the Amalekites was between the 'Negeb [ the desert area of southern Judah' ] and the Sinai Peninsula.

50. The Amalekites did not exist in Abraham's time { See Genesis 36:12 }, but the territory is described this way in order to identify it clearly to the readers. As to the Amorites, they were scattered throughout Palestine. When Moses led the Israelites to the edge of their promised land of Canaan, he recited the conquest of these same Giant families by the Edomites, the Moabites, the Ammonites and the Caphtorims.

=========================

51. { V. 9 } Scripture: "And the Lord said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give you of their land for a possession; Because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession.

52. { V.10 }: The [ Giants named ] E'mims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the An'akims;

53. { V. 11 }: which also were 'accounted [ as Rephaim' ] giants, as the An'akims; but the Moabites call them E'mims.

54. { V. 12 } The 'Horims [ Horites' ] also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them [ from ] before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of His [ The Lord's ] possession, which the Lord gave unto them { Deuteronomy 2:9-12 }."

=========================

55. { V. 17-18 } Scripture: "That the Lord spoke to me [ Moses ], saying, You are to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:

56. { V. 19 }: And when you come near [ the territory ] over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them [ do not provoke or stir them up ]: for I will "NOT" give you of the land of the children of Ammon [ the Ammonites ] any possession; because I have given it to the Children of Lot for a possession, { Deuteronomy 2:17-19 }."

=========================

57. Commentary . . . The question is, who were the children of Lot the Lord was talking about in the above verse? The answer is, that Lot, while in a drunken condition, was hoodwinked into bringing two sons into this world by his own two virgin daughters. Listen to this and follow along with us as we try to explain: . . . After leaving Sodom, fearing the end of the lineage of their family, Lot's two virgin daughters shamelessly had committed incest with their father, using wine to make him insensible to their action. The two sons thus conceived by Lot's two daughters were named Moab, "meaning 'from the father' from whom the Moabites came, and Ben-ammi, meaning: "son of my people;" "i.e; the two sons fathered by Lot from his own two daughters were naturally of the same Hebrew blood."

58. Since Lot was a nephew of Abraham, this meant that this whole family were Hebrews." One of the sons became the father of the Ammonites territory, while the other son of Lot naturally became the father of the Moabite territory. The descendants of Moab called 'Moabites' lived east of the Dead Sea { see Numbers 21:13 }, while the descendants of Ben-ammi, called 'Ammonites' lived to the north east of it, { see Numbers 2:37 }. As we have pointed out, all of this land of both sons are presently in modern day Jordan. { See Genesis 19:30-38 }. Perhaps we should add something else here while we are on the subject . . . according to Scripture it seems that Lot's two Sodom-tainted virgin daughters must have had married sisters who perished in Sodom. Why do we think so? . . . Notice in { Genesis 19:14 } before Lot and his two daughters left Sodom Lot had - had a conversation with other family members, read on if you please . . .

=========================

59. Scripture: "And Lot went out and spoke to his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law."

========

60. The above verse paraphrased: "And Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, and said, get up, [ because this was obviously during the nighttime hours and they may have been in bed. Lot said: ] get out of this place meaning Sodom; for the Lord will spoil and destroy this city! But, he seemed to his sons-in-laws as if he were only joking." And then in { V. 8 } Lot told the sodomite men of Sodom . . .

========

61. Scripture: "Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you. . . ."

=========================

62. Commentary . . . Lot by offering his two virgin daughter is explained [ though not justified ] by the demands of hospitality, which at that time according to custom evidently obligated a host to protect his guests at all cost. The trouble is, there is some question whether there had been other daughters left in Sodom. Some ministers reject this writers understanding of this matter because of a marriage contract under the Hebrew order of marriage. To explain the custom . . . the Hebrew marriage took place under certain circumstances: when a lady was espoused in an engagement ceremony with a man, before they came together in a sexual union, there was a transitional period of waiting before the actual wedding took place and after that the marriage would be consummated. In the Hebrew Jewish society an espoused or engaged couple was actually considered married, the lady would ready herself for approximately a year after they became engaged, in what way we can only guess. Possibly she would prepare her hope chest and make other plans for the marriage. In the meantime the husband would prepare a suitable place to live, then after the time element was concluded the actual wedding would take place.

63. The fact is the marriage custom we have mentioned was obviously not a custom as yet in Abraham and Lot's time, but began later in Israel's future Dispensation. It must be remembered that Israel did not become a nation for several hundred years after Abraham and Lot came on the scene. Therefore, there would have been no such custom such as that in Sodom. After the Israelites left Egypt a few hundred years later, the Ammonites and the Moabites being descendants of other Hebrews answers the question why God in { V. 19 } above would not allow the Israelites to take over their land even though there were giants living in that land. This would not be allowed because even though Lot's family were Hebrews of a somewhat carnal nature, they were still Hebrews and subject to the same agreement God had made to Abraham. But, on the other hand there were still Giants living in the land of the Ammonites and Moabites.

=========================

64. { V. 20 } Scripture: "That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old times; and the Ammonites call them Zamzum'mims;

65. { V. 21 }: A people great, and many, and tall, as the An'akims; but the Lord destroyed them before them [ before the nation of Israel ]; and 'they [ the Israelis' ] succeeded [ dispossessed ] them and dwelt in their stead, { Deuteronomy 2:20-21 }."

=========================

66. Commentary . . . The Emims were called "Terrors," by the Moabites who succeeded them because they were huge and ferocious [ savage ], looking. They overcame these Giants in the region just east of the Jordan river { See Deuteronomy 2:10 }. This same tribe of Giants were called "Amu," [ i.e., "nomad Shemites" ] by the Egyptians. Many of them were conquered by Chedorlao'mer at Shaveh Kiriathaim { See Genesis 14:5 }. The Zuzim of Ham were a northern tribe of Rephaim [ Giants ] located between the Arnon and Jabbok, and were conquered by Chedorlao'mer. The Ammonites who supplanted them called them "Zamzum'mims."

67. The ruined cities of Bashan were formerly occupied by the Giant races and with the help of God's guidance and power, normal men were able to conquer them and dwell in their land. All this should have encouraged the Israelites to go ahead and overcome the Giants that were dwelling in the land that the Lord had chosen for them as a nation. They did conquer King Og of Bashan who was a Giant, and he and his host were the only Giants who remained in that particular part of the country.

=========================

68. Scripture: "For only Og king of Ba'shan remained of the remnant of Giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? Nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it after of a man { Deuteronomy 3:11 }."

=========================

69. Commentary . . . Some believe that Og's bedstead referred to his coffin or an iron-decorated couch that was placed in his tomb, or perhaps it only referred to the bed he slept on in his home. In any case, it was 13 & 1/2 by 6 feet indicating how huge Og was. Thus, this Giant King must have been at least 12 feet tall. Then the Hebrews under the command of Joshua, passed over the Jordan river and with the support of Almighty God, they conquered the land and destroyed the majority of those Giants of which the spies had observed in that place some 38 years before. But they did not destroy all of them. { See Genesis Ch. 14; - Deuteronomy Ch. 2; - & - Joshua Ch. 13 }.

70. As scripture states, after Saul become the first King of Israel, which was many years after the time of Joshua, the Philistines were at war with the Israelites. We find that the Giant "Goliath" was among the Philistines who came forth to confront Israel. Practically all human beings whether Christian or not have heard the story and perhaps saw the movie portraying David killing Goliath and delivering Israel from their enemies! { See 1- Samuel 17:4 }. During those days and even today, many of the Hebrews were not a tall people. Goliath was approximately 10 feet tall and as David was just a young boy, the Giant must have been almost twice as tall as David.

71. After David had been King of the Hebrew nation for several years, the Philistines returned with another Giant by the name of "Ishbibenob" who had in mind to kill David { See 2- Samuel 21:16-17 }. This Giant's sword weighed 300 shekels of brass or about 8 pounds; which was approximately half the weight of the sword David had taken from Goliath. { See 1- Samuel 17:7 }. One of David's men "Abishal" killed this Giant. Later on in another battle, one of the sons of a Giant by the name of "Saph," was also present and even later at "Gob," a son or possibly a brother of Goliath showed up. And, again there was a Giant who had six toes and six fingers who was killed. Concerning a Giant named Sip'pai . . . { See 1- Chronicles 20:4; - & - 2- Samuel 21:18- 22 }. We can see that there were still several Giants left in the land that joined Israel's enemies. Israel failed to obey the Lord and destroy all the enemies in the land as Jehovah had commanded them to do, but they had trouble as long as they lived in the land.

=========================

72. Scripture: "But if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which you let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and vex you in the land wherein you dwell { Numbers 33:55 }."

Part 3. What About The Children Of All The Wicked Angels?. . .

1. Commentary . . . It has been said . . . "Angels cannot change themselves into a human body to live as we humans do." It is true they cannot take on a human body, but the Bible points out that Angels appeared to Abraham as men and they ate with him! They were recognized as men at that time and also as men at the city of Sodom. You will notice here also that the reason they were called men was because they obviously had no wings, as do the cherubim and seraphim. This also proves that regular Angels have no wings! Had they had wings they would naturally have been recognized as being angels!

=========================

2. { V. 1 } Scripture: "And the Lord appeared unto him [ Abraham ] in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

3. { V. 2 }: And he [ Abraham ] lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood [ a little distance from ] by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground { Genesis 18:1-2 }."

=========================

4. Commentary . . . This was Jehovah God and two Angels who had obviously been created in the likeness of God with the form of men when they appeared to Abraham and Sarah. Likewise the wicked Angels were created in this same way in the form of men when they took earth women as wives. As we have already stated: many believe that the sons of Seth married the daughters of Cain. It is believed that had this happened it would have resulted in a godless race of people. On the other hand, there isn't any reason to accept that kind of doctrine. The truth is . . . both brothers' descendants naturally lived throughout the known world at that time and it certainly would have been natural for them to intermingle and marry each other.

=========================

5. Scripture . . . "And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon [ God by ] the name of the Lord { Genesis 4:26 }."

=========================

6. Commentary . . . Seth means "the appointed one," the substitute for his brother Abel who Cain had slain. When the verse states that "then men began to call upon the name of the Lord," there isn't any reason to think that "ONLY" Seth's descendants called on the name of the Lord. We believe that anyone who descended from Adam's family could became saved Believers. Certainly, the Lord did not limit anyone who might call on His name, nor does He do that today! We positively see no distinction between children then or today who have been born from parents that were Christians or unbelievers. There has always been human Children of God but this does not always mean their offspring are righteous!

7. It was only natural for Adam's children and grandchildren to intermarry. After all, who else were they to marry? There were no other people on the earth to pick a mate from! Of course, after 50 or so years, the earth had more people on it and then the inhabitants could start picking and choosing who they married. Today, people of different races often marry each other, and yes, many Christians have married those who were unbelievers. In fact my mother was a Christian and my father was unsaved when they were married, but my parent's eleven children were all of a normal size. Have you noticed that some children born of parents such as my parents were Giants? I haven't noticed any Giants born from such a union! When we go to the Scriptures we notice that female Giants are not mentioned, why not?

8. If Giant men were born to sons and daughters of those who were saved Believers and unbelievers, it would be natural for many of their children to be Giant women isn't that so? But, we find no Giant woman mentioned. If daughters of men are mentioned, it refers to the whole human race, otherwise they would not be of men! We are not saying that there were no Giant women in that day. Very few women are mentioned in the Bible, this does not mean that women were not important but evidently God did not see fit to mention many of them. It does not seem natural that Giant women would not exist, we believe that they did.

9. "Bne-ha-Elohim . . . Sons of God," doesn't have the same meaning in the New Testament as it does in the Old Testament. In the O.T. . . . Sons of God refer to Angels who were created as such. Again we refer to {Job - 1:6; - 2:1; - & - 38:7 }. But, what about the New Testament? Only by the new birth into Jesus Christ's Body of Saints does one receive the new birth! Then we become Sons of God by adoption and by believing! {See 1- John 3:1-2; - Galatians 4:6; - Romans 8:14-16; - & - John 1:12 }. Satan in the above verses in Job is spoken of as a son of God.

10. Incidentally, the words "Bnoth-ha -Adam refers to Daughters of Men," "Hog-Gibborim, to Mighty Men," and "Hans-Nephilim to Giants." Up until the beginning of the Body of Christ, the ancient Hellenistic Hebrews always referred to the Sons of God as Angelic beings. The Body of Christ taught the same truth until sometime in the 4th century AD. After that, the false teaching of practically all bible teachers referred to them as the Sons of Seth. It was natural for Satan to lay on the 'hearts [ minds, intellect' ] of men this false doctrine, after all he never wanted the truth to be told. Satan put in the minds of Church leaders that Angelic beings should be worshipped . . . and that type of worship began in the 4th century and possibly even before that!

Ancient False Gods In History And How They Are Associated With Wicked Angels And Giants . . .

11. Commentary . . . Mankind in their sinful state was led to believe that Angels were gods and started worshipping them! There has been much occultism placed in the minds of men concerning Angels. Many of the occultists' heroes that have come into existence, are copies of Angels and the Giant children of old, such as "Thor, the ancient Scandinavian god of thunder. Hercules, a celebrated god like hero of great strength, and who was also known as "Alcides."

Who Were The Titans? . . .

12. Commentary . . . Titans: a family of primordial deities, the children 'of Uranus [ heaven' ] and 'Gaea [ Earth' ], conceived as lawless beings of gigantic size and enormous strength. According to the legend they overthrew Uranus, the ruler of the world, and raised Cronus, one of their number, to the throne, but were themselves overcome and cast into 'Tartarus [ the pit of Hell' ] by Zeus, the son of Cronus. Also there was a Sun god who was called "Helios" [ Sol ], son of the Titan Hyperion. [ Incidentally the word Titanic means Gigantic ]. It seems that 'Gaea the god of earth' is still being worshipped by countless people today who proclaim 'Mother Earth [ Gaea' ] as a deity, otherwise why would they call the earth 'Mother Earth?. There is a great deal spoken about mother earth today by those who seem to be earth worshippers!

13. The majority of Mythology began in Babylon and is called "the Babylonian mysteries." Many of the holidays that are looked upon today as being important actually are associated with false gods of ancient times, such as Christmas, Easter, the different days of the week and Valentines Day, etc. All this began with the "Man named Nimrod" who is believed to be the first ruler of Babylon. The none fiction story goes like this: "Noah had three sons, Shem . . . the father of the Oriental race, Ham, the father of the Dark race, and Ja'pheth, the father of the White race { See Genesis 6:10 }. Ham's descendants, went to Africa and later spread east and west along the Mediterranean coast of north Africa. One of the sons of Ham was named "Cush," and { Genesis 10:8 } states that Nim'rod, one of Cush's sons became "a mighty one in the earth."

14. How Nimrod got to Babylon which is called Iraq today, we do not know. Nimrod's activities centered first in Shinar [ Babylonia ] and included the building of the tower of Babel, described in { Genesis 11:1-9 }; then he went to Assyria { See Micah 5:6 }.

15. Nimrod's wife Se-mir-a-mis, an Assyrian Queen of surpassing greatness, wisdom, and beauty: become one of the founders of Babylon. According to history, Nimrod the actuarial fonder of Nineveh [ the ancient capital of Assyria in northern Iraq ], became the husband of Semiramis.

16. Concerning the Babylonians, they were descendants from Ham which means that they were of the dark races. This does not necessarily mean that they were all from the black race but they were dark in appearance, also the Egyptians were descendants of Ham and they still appear dark skinned as are the people of Iraq who are descendants of the Babylonians.

Christmas, Otherwise Known As "The Mass Of Christ." . . .

17. Commentary . . . It seems that Nimrod later died and as the myth goes, at the same time of his death, the dead stump of an evergreen tree started growing and grew into a beautiful evergreen tree which was to be actually worshipped in a false worship ceremony in later times { See Jeremiah 10:1-12 }.

18. Nimrod was looked on as being a god and evidently was worshipped as such. Semiramis gained a great deal of glory from her dead and deified husband; and in time both of them, under the names of Rhea and Nin, or "Goddess - Mother and Son," were worshipped with enthusiasm and that was incredible, and their images were set up everywhere and adored. It seems that no public idolatry was ventured upon till the reign of the grandson of Semiramis, Arioch or Arius. The Mother and Son story were unique. It goes like this . . . It is believed that Semiramis was involved in the pagan temple worship as one of the temple harlots. Thus, she became pregnant and gave birth to a son.

19. Concerning this Son Ninus, all that was needed was for Semiramis to teach that 'Ninus [ Tammuz' ] had reappeared by being born after the death of his father. She told the people that Nimrod had gone to glory, and this son Ninus had now been born by a supernatural birth, in other words, born by herself as her husband's widowed wife. { See Tammuz: Ezekiel l 8:14 }. { Tammus was a Babylon deity, husband and son of Ishtar otherwise known as Semiramis or venus, etc, degrading immorality was connected with his worship. ] The licentious and dissolute life of Semiramis gave her many children, for whom no natural father would honestly be named. By naming Ninus's birth as being supernatural, the people would now look upon the child as being born in a sinless birth.

20. From the light reflected on Babylon by Egypt, as well as from the form of the extent images of the Babylonian child in the arms of the goddess-mother, we have every reason to believe that a portion of this tale actually took place. In other words, Semiramis was really the wife of Nimrod and became a temple harlot after his death, but the story she told was pure fiction even though believed by her followers. What is taught here, is that the child is really the father Nimrod himself being reborn as the son 'Tammuz' who would inherit all of his father's glory, and would also be deified as a god the same as the father was. He thus, would come to be the favorite type of the future Madonna's divine son.

21. This son, therefore being worshipped in his mother's arms, was looked upon as being invested with all the attributes, and called by almost all the names of the promised Christ. As Christ was called Adonai, in the Hebrew which means "The Lord," so 'Tammuz [ Nimrod reborn from his wife Semiramis' ] was called Adon or Adonis. Under the name of Mithras, he was worshipped as the "Mediator." As Mediator and head of the covenant of grace, he was styled Baal-berith, Lord of the covenant { See Judges 8:33 }. In this character this false god is represented in Persian monuments as seated on the rainbow, the well-known symbol of the covenant. In India, we find this same personage under the name of Vishnu, the Preserver or Saviour of men, though a god, he was worshipped as the great "Victim-man," who before the worlds were, because there was nothing else to offer, offered himself as a sacrifice.

22. The Hindu sacred writings teach that this mysterious offering before creation is the foundation of all the sacrifices that have ever been offered since. Does anyone marvel at such a statement being found in the sacred books of a Pagan mythology? Why should they? Since sin entered the world there has only been one way for salvation, and that through the blood of the everlasting covenant of Almighty God. A way that all mankind once knew from the days of righteous Abel. When Able, "by faith," offered to the Lord a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain, it was his faith "in the blood of the Lamb slain," according to God's will "from the foundation of the world," that naturally pleased the Lord. And in due time this Saviour was to be actually offered up on Calvary, that would give all the "excellence" to His offering.

23. If Able knew about the blood of the Lamb of God, why shouldn't the Hindoo's know about it also? The shame is that the cults mentioned placed their trust in the false god of the Babylonians instead of in the Christ of our Bible. It should be pointed out that the Roman Catholics have inherited much of these beliefs from the Babylonians and thus, teach some of this false doctrine. Many countries knew of the blood sacrifice and most of them worshipped and are still worshipping the wrong god. Untold millions today are still bowing down to pray to a mother and son image that originated from the Babylonian mysteries of long ago and this false god and his false mother, a so called queen of Heaven has taken the place of the real Christ of the Bible! As to the blood of God, one little word shows that even in Greece the virtue of "the blood of God" had once been known, though that virtue, as exhibited in its poets, was utterly obscured and degraded. That word is "Ichor."

24. Every reader of the poetic writings of classic Greece knows that Ichor is the term peculiarly appropriated to the blood of a Divinity. Thus, Homer refers to it, he states . . . "From the clear vein the immortal Ichor flowed, such stream as issues from a wounded god, pure emanation, uncorrupted flood, unlike our gross, diseased terrestrial blood." Concerning the wicked Angels and their 'offspring [ the Giants' ], many ministers today dogmatically object to this writers teaching on this subject. The objection to the Angelic interpretation is based on what Christ taught concerning a marriage relationship of the redeemed in Heaven, when He said, "They neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the Angels of God in Heaven." { See Matthew 22:30; - Mark 12:25; - & - Luke 20:30-36 }.

25. What the Lord was saying was that Angels do not marry, but you notice that Christ does not state that Angels were created as sexless beings, it merrily states that they "do not marry in Heaven." Never does the Scripture state that Angels haven't the power of procreation. Naturally the Angels were not created to procreate or to have a sexual relationship of any kind with other Angels or with human beings! When humans have the power to sin by disobeying God, they while being in a lost condition naturally degrade themselves by following the dictates of their father the devil. With fallen angelic beings who have fallen from grace never again to return to the real God Jehovah, the natural thing for them to do is follow their father Satan in the same fashion as do lost humans! They exercise every imaginable sin that Satan leads them to perform but one fact remains they do not multiply by procreation themselves!

26. As far as we know, Angels were created "en'masse," and naturally they were created as immortal entities. In other words they can never die as humans do but will, as humans do, live forever either in Heaven or Hell which place depends as to whether they have followed the true God or Satan. In the form in which Angels were created and as they are spirit beings, they were not created to marry. The marriage relationship, as our Bible states, was for mankind to populate the earth with children so that the world would bring forth a huge multitude of humans that would follow the dictates of God. The human race was to never become extinct because of death or by any other way! Folks in the past have taught that everybody in Heaven would be in the male gender, that is positively not so! The clear inference of the Scriptures is that all male and female resurrected Saints will recognize one another in the Heavens just as they did on the earth. Every husband, wife, son, daughter etc . . . shall know each other as they did in the past.

27. All humans are immortal, a small percentage to spend eternity in Heaven, the largest part in Hell, but, all will live eternally! Naturally, in Hell as it is in Heaven, there certainly will not be any marriage relationship as is presently known, all such shall be discontinued. But, nothing in the Bible teaches that family members will not recognize each other as they did beforehand on the earth! All Angels [ Sons Of God ] were created In the masculine gender. The Body Of Christ is also In the masculine gender as is taught In the New Testament { Ephesians 2:15 }. The Bible calls Angels "Bne-ha-Elohim, sons of Elohim [ God ]," but never are the "Bnoth-ha-Elohim, daughters of Elohim [ God ]," mentioned. On the other hand, just because the Angels are spirit beings, this does not mean that they were not created without generative organs whereas they would not be able to have a sexual relationship with the "DAUGHTERS OF MEN"!

28. The above may be difficult for some to accept, yet according to { Genesis Ch. 6:1-4 }, they do have such power to do so should they follow the dictates of the devil. Naturally the bodies of humans and that of Angels are different in the respect that as we have before stated, Angels are spirit beings and can even fly through the air. Even though we are not usually recognized as such, we humans are also spirit beings! We are clothed in material bodies of flesh, and in the hereafter . . . since we are to live forever whether in Heaven or Hell, will have spiritual bodies that will exist throughout eternity . . . as will the Angels. Someone stated that "Man is now half-beast and half angel, but someday will be all angel." We wholeheartedly disagree with that statement, but we as Christians, have lived in the image of the earthly, and will certainly bear the image of the Heavenly.

=========================

29. Scripture: "Yes, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Ga'briel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation { Daniel 9:21 }."

=========================

30. Scripture: "And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the Heavenly { 1- Corinthians 15:49 }.

=========================

31. Commentary . . . Are men and Angels then so dissimilar that they under certain conditions could not have a union between themselves? [ Do Angels actually fly ]? { See Genesis 1:26-27 } . . .

=========================

32. { V. 6 } Scripture: "And I saw another Angel FLY in the midst of Heaven having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

========

33. Commentary . . . The "everlasting Gospel" to preach, was God's last call of grace to the world before the return of Christ the Messiah in judgment.

========

34. { V. 7 }: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made Heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters { Revelation 14:6-7 }."

=========================

35. Commentary . . . Notice the text states Gabriel is called a "man," and that he had a materialistic form that could be seen flying through the air. He could be seen as a man, could eat as a man, just as the Angels ate of Abraham's calf { Genesis 18:1- 8 }.

=========================

36. { V. 1 } Scripture: "And there came two Angels to Sodom at evening; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

37. { V. 2 }: And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and you shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

38. { V. 3 }: And he 'pressed [ insisted' ] upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat, { Genesis 9:1-3 }."

=========================

39. Commentary . . . These two Angels appeared as men and were accepted as men. Had these Angels had wings they would not have been accepted as men because Lot would have recognized them as being Angels. Hollywood and many false teachers teach and draw pictures of Angels all having wings and that most of them are woman Angels. All Angels were created as men and nowhere do Scripture state that angels have wings except a special class of angelic beings called "Seraphim and Cherubim" that were created in the image of a type of animal, See { Ezekiel 10:14-22 }. As far as them flying through the air, this means that they can fly without wings! Perhaps a good illustration of this type of flying is similar to that which is portrayed in the Superman movies and comic books.

It Is Impossible For Humans To Ever Become Angelic Beings Either On Earth

Or In Heaven . . . Angels Will Be Lower Than Christians In Heaven! . . .

40. Commentary . . . Scripture states that humans were created in the "image of God" Not only spiritually, but in a sense physically. The Lord is Spirit, and it is not to be supposed that He hasn't any form, otherwise how could we as humans be created in the likeness of God and have the form we have in the likeness of man? The Lord has ears, eyes, and can speak as we humans do. There is no doubt that all humans and Angelic beings except the Cherubim's and Seraphim's were created in the Lord's image which is the image of our human bodies! We notice that throughout our Bible when the Lord appeared to a man it was always in the form of a Man. Incidentally, "Seraphim's" as mentioned in Isaiah is spoken of as heavenly Angels and in { Numbers 21:6 }, as of fiery serpents. Derived from a verb that means "to burn." As to the Seraphim [ the Hebrew form is plural ] were agents of cleansing; here they are Angelic agents. Compare them with the Cherubim's in { Genesis 3:22-24 } { See Psalm 8:1-9; - Ezekiel 10:21; - & - Isaiah 6:2 }.

=========================

41. { V. 5 } Scripture: "Let this mind [ the same attitude through prayer ] be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus [ let Him be your example in humility ]:

42. { V. 6 }: Who [ although being "One" with God and ] being in the form of God [ possessing the fullness of the attributes which is God, Christ ], thought it not robbery to be equal with God; [ Being in the form of God, means He was and is God ].

43. { V. 7 }: But 'made Himself of no reputation [ and stripped Himself of all privileges and rightful dignity' ] and took upon 'Him [ self' ] the form of a servant [ like a slave ], and 'was made [ that is, His human body was formed' ] in the likeness of [ ordinary ] man:

========

44. Commentary . . . Made of Himself of no reputation. Literally; He emptied Himself. The "kenosis [ emptying" ] of Christ during His incarnation does not mean that He surrendered any attributes of Deity, but that He took on the limitations of humanity. This involved a veiling of His preincarnate glory { See John 17:5 } and the voluntary waiving of some of His Divine prerogatives during the time He was on the earth. { See Matthew 24:36 }.

========

45. { V. 8 }: And being found in fashion as a man, He [ abased and ] humbled Himself [ still further ], and became obedient [ and carried His obedience to the extreme ] unto death, even the death of the cross.

46. { V. 9 }: Therefore [ because He stooped so low ] God [ the Father and God the Holy Spirit ] also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: { See Micah 5:2; - & - Isaiah 9:6-7 }. [ Through self- denial and obedience Christ won sovereignty over all peoples and things ].

47. { V. 10 }: That in [ at ] the name of 'Jesus [ which means Jehovah - & - Lord' ] every knee 'should [ MUST' ] bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

48. { V. 11 }: And that every tongue [ frankly, openly and "publicly" ] should confess [ reverently and wholeheartedly acknowledge ] that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father { Philippians 2:5-11 }."

=========================

49. Commentary . . . The above 7 Verses shows that the humanity of Christ is the high mark of the epistle. Unlike the informal, conversational style of the rest of the letter, these verses are highly polished. It is also noteworthy in that they convey in a few verses Paul's conception of the uniqueness of the person and work of Christ. Paul's point is that the disposition, and the temper, of every member of the Body of Christ should always be Christ like. Christ subjected Himself to servitude, because the form of a servant is the same as the form of a master even though the servant may have less knowledge than the master. Jesus descended down to earth as a man, and He is at the present time in Heaven as the Man Christ Jesus { See 1- Timothy 2:5 }, He said . . .

50. "He that has seen Me has seen the Father" { See John 14:8-11 }. Jesus { which means "Emman'uel" which also means "God is with us" { Matthew 1:21-23; - Isaiah 7:14 - & - 8:10 }. As we can see, Jesus while on the earth in a human body was a true revelation of God in person and His personal works was constant proof of His Deity. No one but God could perform such miracles as Jesus performed in the eyes of His People. Jesus in His humanity was the only way a human being could look upon God and see Him face to face. 'Otherwise [ if it was otherwise' ], folks who looked on God as a Spirit could not live!

=========================

51. { V. 5 } Scripture: "For there is [ only ] one [ Trinitarian ] God [ in three persons ], and one mediator between God [ the Father ] and men, the man Christ Jesus;

52. { V. 6 }: Who gave Himself a ransom for 'all [ people,' a fact that was ], to be testified in due time, { 1- Timothy 2:5-6 }." =========================

53. { V. 8 } Scripture: "Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father, [ that is, miraculously let us gaze upon Him ] 'and it sufficeth us . . . [ i.e., we will be satisfied' ].

54. { V. 9 }: Jesus [ answered and ] said to him, have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known Me, Philip? "He [ and this means anybody "] that has seen Me has seen the Father; and "how sayest you then [ that is, how can you possibly say" ], Show us the Father [ when I and My Father are the same God ]? { See John 1:1; - & - 10:30 }.

55. { V. 10 }: 'Believe you not [ i.e., don't you honestly believe' ] that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? "words that I speak to you I speak not of Myself [ or according to My own authority and of My own accord" ]: but the Father that dwells [ continually ] in Me, "He does the works [ with His "SUPERNATURAL" miracles, and His deeds of power" ].

56. { V. 11 }: Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father [ is ] in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake [ if you cannot trust Me, at least let these works that I do in My Father's name convince you, ] { John 14:8-11 }."

=========================

57. Commentary . . . { See Exodus 33:18-23 }, all the manifestations of God in Old Testament times were not the manifestations of God the Father, but of God the Son, nevertheless, the Father and the Holy Spirit were co-equal in what each of them accomplished. It was necessary that Jesus should veil His deity in Human flesh, but the veil of the flesh became transparent on the Mount of Transfiguration and three of His disciples beheld Christ's Heavenly body of a man, { See Matthew 17:1-2; - John 1:14; - 8:56-58; - Galatians 3:6,16; - & - 2- Peter 1:16-!8 }.

58. { Genesis 3:8 } tells us that God walked in the garden of Eden . . . and it is obvious that He walked at times with Adam. Naturally the devil also visited the garden at various times and this was the reason Eve trusted him by eating the forbidden fruit of the tree. Remember, it was the devil that appeared in the garden who deceived Eve. It is possible that Angels also visited Adam and his wife several times, after all, there was no reason for this not to happen. One can only imagine what kind of relationship would have taken place had Adam not partaken of the forbidden "tree of knowledge of good and evil."

59. Because of the sin Adam and Eve committed, their eyes were opened and their lives were changed drastically for the worse. Before the fall they didn't even know they were naked, but after sin had been added they knew that they should cover themselves with some kind of clothing { See Genesis 3:6-7 }. The first parents on the new recreated earth were told to be fruitful and replenish the earth { Genesis 1:28 } and covetousness and lustful living followed the offspring of the human race. If this is what took place, Satan used the same idea to put this type of living standards into the mind of several of the fallen Angels in his charge, which caused them also to lust after beautiful woman that lived in their midst. The writer is aware that the word "replenish" is not in the original Hebrew text as the King James version has it in the above verse.

60. On the other hand, after the Flood of Noah's day, Noah was told to replenish the earth with people in order to establish a larger populous. So naturally, Adam and Eve, we believe, were to do the same thing. Common sense alone tells us, that after reading the story of Noah in Genesis, that this first couple should begin to increase the population upon this new Earth! Long after the Flood, we find God's Angels visiting various prophets, and if they could visit godly men, why would it have been impossible for wicked Angels to do the same thing with female humans even though human women were inferior to the Angels? Where does God's Word state that intimate relationships could not transpire between Angels and humans? [ Here again we advise our readers to read our larger message concerning . . . "The Days Of Noah." ] We have pointed out in other messages how wicked Angels would be cast out of the Heavens to dwell on the earth for a short time, and this will take place in the middle of the Tribulation Period { See Revelation 12:7-12 }. After that there will be horrendous trouble on this earth!

=========================

61. { V. 26 } Scripture: "And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

62. { V. 27 }: They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

63. { V. 28}: Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

64. { V. 29 }: But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from Heaven, and destroyed them all.

65. { V. 30 }: Even thus shall it be in the day when the 'Son of man is revealed [ to those on the earth at His Second Coming' ] { Luke 17:26-30 }." { See Matthew 24:37-39; - & - Zechariah 14:4 }.

=========================

66. Commentary . . . In the days of Noah the activities mentioned in { V. 27 } above are not wrong; the people were unprepared for the judgment of the Flood because they did not heed God's warning through Noah. "Even thus shall it be," until the time of Christ's return, many folks will be prosperous, they will feel secure, but certainly will not be prepared for the Lord's return, the same as it was in the days of Noah and Lot.

=========================

67. { V. 15 } Scripture: "And I [ Jehovah-Jesus ] will put enmity between you [ Satan ] and the woman [ Israel ], and between your seed [ Antichrist ] and her seed [ The Christ Child ]; it [ Christ the Messiah ] shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.

68. { V. 16 } Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in sorrow you shall bring forth children; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you { Genesis 3:15-16}," [ Again we have a two fold meaning in these two verses ].

=========================

69. Commentary . . . [ 1 ]: the woman primarily refers to the nation Israel whose children will live in sorrow throughout their generations because of their constant persecution down through their natural history. And, Israel's desire shall be toward the future Messiah who will be the Bridegroom of the remnant of saved Israelis at Messiah's Second Coming, there is much proof of this in the Scriptures! [ 2 ]: The second reference refers to any flesh and blood woman who gives birth to children, she will suffer in child birth, and will suffer over her children as long as she lives. We believe that any mother can testify that this is true! What mother is there who does not worry over her children? As the New Testament teaches, the husband is to rule over the woman in things that are of great importance and the woman is to accept him as the head of the home.

70. This does not mean that she is not to disagree with him in certain matters, for he nor she cannot be right at all times! We have no text to prove this, but we believe that marriage is a 50 . . . 50 proposition and should be accepted as such! Sometimes it takes each married person a long time to find this out. According to { V. 15 } above, Satan has the power of procreation, and he will bring forth a son who will be the Antichrist during the Tribulation Period. You notice Antichrist is called the "Son of Perdition" in { 2- Thessalonians 2:3 }. It must be understood, that perdition is an exceptional place of persecution and suffering {See Revelation 17:8-11 }.

=================================================================================================

Part 4.

"But, they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition { 1- Timothy 6:9 }." . . .

=========================

1. { V. 38 } Scripture: "Now the just shall live 'by faith [ i.e., the Lord's righteous servant shall live by his convictions respecting man's relationship to God and to all Divine things. This includes holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it' ]: but if any man draw back [ and shrinks with fear ], My soul shall have no [ delight or ] pleasure in him.

2. { V. 39 }: But [ concerning our way,] we are not of them who draw back unto [ eternal misery and ] perdition [ and are utterly destroyed in Hell ]; but [ we are ] of them that believe [ who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah . . . and by faith ] to the saving of the soul, { Hebrews 10:38-39 }."

=========================

3. Commentary . . . Too many times, folks forget this { See Ephesians 2:8-9 }, this is the secret of the Christian life. Simply trust in Christ by faith every day of your life! The question from { Habakkuk 2:4 } should be used to teach that the person who has been made righteous by God [ "The Just" ] lives [ and survives the coming ordeal ] by faith. The Child of God is to trust his Heavenly Father in everything.

4. The same verse in Habakkuk is also quoted in { Romans 1:17; - & - Galatians 3:11}, where Paul uses it to teach that the one who is righteous by faith rather than by works shall live. Paul's emphasis concerns salvation by faith: this writer believes the same thing and we add also . . . "living by faith." { See Hebrews 11:1 }.

5. As we have seen by the above verses, the "beast- Antichrist," is called the son of perdition because he is a son of Satan. Whether a natural son which was fathered by Satan which some ministers believe to be possible, or merely a carnal son who has followed Satan as lost souls do. As the Bible substantiates the fact that Angels can and has brought Giant children into this world, it seems to some scalars that the "Son of Perdition" the "Antichrist ," is to be the actual offspring of Satan through procreation. On the other hand, we must say that we disagree somewhat with this idea of the Antichrist being a son of Satan by procreation. The reason why is because Satan is a Cherubim therefore much different from other Angels. And, we cannot believe that a Cherubim would copulate with a flesh and blood human woman. Therefore it stands to reason that Antichrist will be merely a carnal son who has followed Satan as mentioned above. Who the mother of this son could be is of very little importance in this study! Antichrist is no doubt an imitation of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord had no human father, God the Holy Spirit placed Him into the womb of Mary, a virgin. But, the future will prove that the great potentate, the future world ruler will be born of a woman, likely of wicked character, with the devil as his father at least in type. Only God Himself knows the true answer to this Question!

6. And again we repeat the Biblical phrase "There were Giants [ Nephilim ] in the earth in those days [ before the Flood ], and also after that." After what? Naturally, after the great Flood. These Angels had left their first estate . . . which had been the Kingdom of God and had become followers of Satan. What did they do? they took on strange flesh! The Giants was the outcome of their carnal relationship with mankind. Not one of the sons of these Angels was a human being! They certainly were not men such as you and I, but were Giant monstrosities who were half Man and half Angel. They were very wicked people whose every thought was of wickedness and only evil came forth from their fellowship with others!

=========================

7. Scripture: "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his 'heart [ mind, intellect' ] was only evil continually { Genesis 6:5 }."

=========================

8. Commentary . . .These Giants were huge people, they were mighty men, men of great intelligence, which is not the same with large men of today. There are many men today who are pretty large as far as size goes, but we do not find them to be any more intelligent than other man of smaller stature. All nations have their own traditions, and several of these nations have records to prove that there certainly was a great flood. These nations, trace their origin back to that time and their writers of antiquity obtained their own conception of the so- called gods and demi-gods who is believed to have felt a great love for all mankind. This so-called love for the people led these false gods to partially populate the earth with people whom were half angelic and half human. All of this we believe only confirms the fact that the Genesis record of mighty men prove that they were more than human and that they were of heavenly origin. We mentioned earlier in our message that such false gods, monstrosities such as "Hercules," have been worshipped down through history as demigods and these were looked on as miraculous beings. Such actions of men were brought about because of the Giants of old and this idol worship was put into the minds of men by demonic forces.

9. Since the old sin nature was inherited from Adam, it has been passed down through time to every human being from the male gender. This is one of the main reasons the Lord wanted all Giants destroyed from the earth. Jehovah told the Israelis that the land of the Ammonites and Moabites wouldn't become Israel's land for various reasons, one of which was because the former had in the past fought and destroyed many of the Giants that were in their land { See Deuteronomy 2:8-12; - & - 2:17-21 }. It should be well understood that these Giants, the offspring of wicked Angels inherited their wicked fallen nature from their fallen angelic fathers. In no way did they inherit their carnal nature from their human mothers! It has also been taught that demon possessed men in Noah's time fathered all those Giants. There have been demon possessed men and woman ever since the Body of Christ first began, who have married Christians and even each other and this still happens today, but when have you ever seen them produce Giant children?

10. Could it be that the Abominable Snow-men of the Himalayas are Giants of modern time, but do you believe that nonsense? Or . . . is it nonsense??? We find that men and women are much taller now then they were a few decades ago, but isn't it possible that it is because folks are fed better today than in past times? My understanding is, that we are to be like Christ and the Angels when we receive our glorified bodies, does this mean that we are to be sexless? Was Christ sexless when He was taken up into glory? Scripture teaches that the blood of our Lord remained on the earth when He was Resurrected from this earth, but do you really believe that He wasn't all there otherwise? Did He leave various parts of Himself behind when He went up to Paradise? Should you and I teach that the Lord Jesus was a eunuch when He was translated from the earth? This writer certainly don't accept such nonsense and if you do I feel sorry for you, Jesus was and is "The God Man," and always will be! Many of your questions will have to wait until you get to Heaven to receive the right answers, but not this one!

Are Demons Present In This Present Age? . . .

11. Commentary . . . Spiritism has always been with us to some extent, but we find it growing in leaps and bounds today. In Salem, Massachusetts there are over 400 confessed witches and these witches are welcomed by the populous with open arms. We wonder what is wrong with the Christian Ministers in that city, are they asleep? What are they teaching? Or, maybe Satan is deluding the preachers in that City also just like he is deluding the rest of the people! Satan is really working today isn't he? The Scriptures have warned us of all these things,

=========================

13. { V. 1 } Scripture: "Now the [ Holy ] Spirit speaks [ distinctly and ] expressly [ and declares ], that in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed [ giving attention ] to [ deluding and ] seducing [ demonic ] spirits, and doctrines of devils [ demons who are continually obeying Satan ];

14. { V. 2 }: Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared [ polluted and cauterized ] with a hot iron;

15. { V. 3 }: Forbidding [ people ] to marry, and commanding [ them ] to abstain from meats, which God has created to be received with thanks- giving of them which believe [ and have an increasingly clear knowledge of what the Lord taught ] and know the truth.

16. { V. 4 }: For every [ thing the Lord has created and every ] creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused [ or discarded ], if it be received with thanksgiving:

17. { V. 5 }: For it is sanctified [ hallowed and consecrated ] by the word of God and prayer, { I- Timothy 4: 1-5 }."

=========================

18. Commentary . . . In the above verses, Paul returns to his attack on heresy. False teaching is inspired by demons and promulgated by men speaking lies in hypocrisy [ this speaking is masculine, which is primarily referring to men ]. The Christian should live affirmatively, neither renouncing the world for a life of self-denial nor plunging into indulgence. The phrase in { V. 3 } above "forbidding to marry" does not refer to celibacy, but to abolish the marriage relationship. In other words, to practice free love outside of marriage and continue in the practice of affinities, which Spiritism leads to. In { V. 3 } above, we notice that the words . . . "abstain from meats" is used. Many Bible students have made studies on the occult and have found that a strict vegetable diet makes one more susceptible to demonic invasion of their bodies, but a meat diet helps to counteract an invasion of demonic forces.

=========================

19. { V. 6 } Scripture: "If you put [ and lay all these instructions before ] the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shall be a good minister [ a worthy steward ] of Jesus Christ, [ always ] nourished up in the words [ concerning all the truths ] of faith and of [ the ] good [ Christian ] doctrine [ and instruction ], whereunto you have [ closely ] attained . . . [ followed ].

20. { V. 7 }: But refuse profane and old wives fables . . . [ irreverent legends . . . profane and impure godless fiction, mere grandmothers' tales and silly myths, and express your disapproval of them ], and exercise [ and train ] yourself rather unto godliness [ to piety, keeping yourself spiritually fit ].

21. { V. 8 }: For bodily exercise [ physical training is of some value but it ] profits little: but godliness [ spiritual training ] is [ useful and ] 'profitable [ in value' ] unto all things [ and in every way ], having promises of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

22. { V. 9 }: This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

23. { V. 10 }: For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach [ with a view to this we toil and strive, yes and suffer reproach ], because we [ have fixed our hope and ] trust in the living God, Who is the Saviour [ Preserver, Maintainer and Deliverer ] of all [ believing ] men, specially of those that believe [ trust in, rely on and adhere to Christ ].

24. { V. 11 }: These things [ continue to ] command and [ to ] teach [ them ], { 1- Timothy 4:6-11 }."

=========================

25. Commentary . . . Notice that { V. 7 } mentions "old wives' fables," this can refer to several things but especially to some of the false doctrines propagated by different women throughout the age. Such a woman was Mrs. Eddy who the Christian Science cult bases their false doctrine on. Several other false denominations received their followers from women who thought they could change the meaning of the true Word of God by using their own self-righteous interpretation of the Bible. The fact is, they did receive a huge following of deceived people.

26. [ Please read about the "Seven Day Adventist" and see where they got their beginning ]. Has the reader ever considered that the far majority of mediums and witches are women? Read about the "witch of Endor" in { 1- Samuel 28:7-9 }, also we find that 99 percent of the mediums and self proclaimed witches today are women. Thank God for Godly Christian women! The continued practice of witchcraft in this age, which is increasing in leaps and bounds, should warn us that we are rapidly approaching the end of this age of grace! We are right on the threshold of the Great Tribulation Period, which means that the Resurrection of the Body of Christ could take place at any minute from now on, are you ready?

The Great Power That Demons Have Over The Body Of Those They Possess . . .

27. Commentary . . . As Scripture explains . . . Satan and his demons are the powers of darkness. Demons are innumerable in number and it is always taught by the average minister that they are wicked Angels who became demons after they became followers of Satan. But, . . . the Bible never says that demons are angels, if it does, we have never found such a text in the Scriptures. Angels have bodies but demons, are spirit beings that have no bodies of their own, thus, they are always looking for a human body in which they can dwell. They are seducing spirits who wish to control human beings and they even enter into animals such as swine, this should prove that they do not have bodies of their own. { See Luke 8:26-33 }. As we have said before in this message . . . "that it has been supposed that all or at least most of these demons are disembodied spirits from giants who resided on the first earth before it was destroyed and even up to king David's time." Now their wish is to find a body of their own again, that they can use to satisfy their carnal desires. Naturally we do not actually know where demons originated, but Adam and his descendants who lived on the earth before the great Flood were flesh and blood people just as you and I.

28. In { Luke 8 }, Jesus conversed with the demons and they answered Him in an intelligent voice, this proves that they have a unique personality and are intelligent beings. When a demon controls the human body, he can inflict physical defects and deformities { Luke 13:11-17 }. He can cause blindness { Matthew 12:22 }. Dumbness { Matthew 9:32-33 }. Suicidal mania { Mark 9:22 }. Insanity { Luke 8:26-35 }. Personal injuries { Mark 9:18 }. He can cause one to have supernatural strength { Luke 8:29 }. They put thoughts in the human mind that concerns "the doctrine of demons" { 1- Timothy 4:1 }. Demons use humans as instruments of unrighteousness { Romans 6:13 }. They cause wicked men to teach "damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction { 2- Peter 2:1 }." A demon calls the body of the person he possesses his house and can leave that body at will and return at will until the person is freed from him if ever.

=========================

29. Scripture: " When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, I will return unto my house [ a human body ] whence I came out, { Luke 11:24 }." { Read verse 25 - & - 26 also }.

=========================

30. Commentary . . . The sin of sensuality is caused primarily by demonic invasion of the human body. Many such demon possessed folks are caused to be overly lustful and to desire to run around in a state of nudity. This likely is part of the trend that accounts for the immodesty of fashionable attire and the craze for sex, dancing and drugs. Demon possession very often alienates wives and husbands and causes separation and divorce, thus, breaking up homes and leaving children without a father or a mother. Demons are the driving force behind the free love propaganda that has caused so much trouble in this century. He has great power, and he is usually in control over the person he has possessed and causes the person to have a deranged mind and body. The demon ruins the person's health and if one does not turn to the Lord for deliverance, the person may have a premature death. The Lord alone has the power, and the Lord also at times gives men the ability to cast out demons from a possessed person, but naturally it's always God's power that forces the demon to leave the persons body, { See Matthew 10:1; - & - Acts 16:16-18 }.

31. It has been taught that the disease of epilepsy where a person will have a seizure is caused by demon possession, this may have been so in a few cases but very few. Having a disease of one type or another certainly does not mean one is possessed! The Bible definitely makes a distinction between natural sickness and demonism. There are cults today that teach their members that they are to sacrifice animals and at times even humans to some false god, this type of worship is definitely demonic and Christians should stay away from such people other than to witness to them.

=========================

32. { V. 20 } Scripture: "But I say, that the things which [ the pagans . . . ] the [ unsaved of every race ] Gentiles sacrifice they [ offer in effect ] sacrifice to devils [ demons . . . which are evil spiritual powers ], and not to God: and I would not that you should have fellowship [ or be partners ] with 'devils [ demons' ].

33. { V. 21 }: You cannot drink the cup of the Lord [ Communion Cup ], and the cup of devils [ that is, diabolical demonic entities ]: you cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils [ demons ], {1- Corinthians 10:20-21 }." { See Deuteronomy 32:17 }.

=========================

34. Commentary . . . What better proof do we have that occultic worship is performed by the spirit of demonism and that licentiousness with wild orgies are strictly brought about by demonic powers? The occult teaches that communication with people whom are deceased can help you after the death of a loved one. When we study the story concerning the rich man in Hell and Lazarus in Paradise, it is easily seen that communicating with the dead is very unnecessary and positively not permitted { See Luke 16:19-31 }. Had it been practical, the rich man or perhaps Lazarus would have been permitted to appear upon the outer part of the earth to witness to various individuals. Since this was not allowed, it only proves that Spiritism is a fraud and is used by the devil to confuse and lead astray many people who are not good Bible students! It is sad to say but, all those folks who become entrenched in witchcraft and astrology are putting their faith in false gods and will have their understanding darkened. They are placing themselves under the control of Satan, his wicked Angels and his demons!

Considering Prophecy In The Last Days . . .

35. Commentary . . . The end of the Body of Christ period is approaching very . . . very rapidly, this will end the present Dispensation of grace and began the horrible Tribulation Period. When Christ comes down in the atmosphere of this earth to catch away those of us who are members of Christ's Body of born again Believers, it will take place in a twinkling of an eye. When this takes place our Dispensation will end that very moment. { See 1- Thessalonians 4:16-18; - & - 1- Corinthians 15: 51-55 }. The Holy Spirit of God has been active with humanity throughout the last 2000 years which was to be the length of this grace period. { See Daniel 1:17- 20 }.

=========================

36. { V. 11 } Scripture: "Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from where it rises [ or how to get rid of it ]: and mischief [ disaster and evil ] shall fall upon you; you shall not be able to put it off [ even worshipping and sacrificing to all your so called gods can not atone for it ]: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know . . . [ how to avert it ] . . .

37. { V. 12 }: Stand now [ and persist ] with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your sorceress, wherein you have laboured from your youth [ and see ]; if so be you shall [ perhaps ] be able to profit, if so be you may prevail [ and strike terror ].

38. { V. 13 }: You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels [ and plans ]. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up [ and make known to you ], and save you from these things that shall come upon you.

39. { V. 14 }: Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn [ and consume ] them; they shall not [ and cannot ] deliver themselves [ or deliver anyone else ] from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

40. { V. 15 }: Thus shall they [ the astrologers and their kind ] be unto you with whom you have laboured [ and such is their fate who have done business with you ], even your merchants, from your youth: they shall wander everyone to his quarter [ and in his own direction, no one and I mean absolutely ]; none shall [ be able to ] save you { Isaiah 47:11-15 }."

=========================

41. Commentary . . . The Holy Spirit has been dwelling in the hearts of all Christians during this present age { See 1- John 4:15-16; - Ephesians 1:13-14; - 4:5-6; - 4:30; - 1- Corinthians 6:19-20; - 12:13; - & - John 3:5 }. We believe that Satan is fearful of rebelling in a greater way as long as the great Hinderer "The Holy Spirit" and the Body of Christ is still hindering { See 2- Thessalonians 2:7 }. When the Body of Christ is complete and caught up into Heaven, the Holy Spirit then, will not be near as active on the earth. And then, Satan will become very active and very bold in his rebellion and enmity towards the human race! Jesus warned the Hebrew nation in { Matthew Ch. 24 } of that which concerned the Tribulation Period at the end of the age. And made clear to them that He would return at the end of that 7 year period. Among the many troubles that are about to come to pass very shortly now, will be sinful atrocities such as those which came upon the earth, just before the Flood of Noah. It will be just like the days of Noah and the days of Lot.

42. The Apostle Peter and Jude had been followers of the Lord Jesus and had been sent by Christ, only to the lost sheep of the nation of Israel { See Matthew 10:5-7 }. After Jesus had been Resurrected to Heaven, these two Apostles still continued their ministry to the Hebrew people. { See Galatians 2:7-9 }. When they wrote their Epistles, they could see that the Israelites might proceed right on into the Tribulation blindly not remembering what the Lord had taught them while He was on the earth. It is likely that these two men had a feeling that their lives were drawing short and decided to warn their people about the trouble to come. We must realize that even in that age, folks were expecting the coming of the Lord to soon take place. { See 2- Peter 1:12-21}. We have spoken of this before but to enlarge on the subject, we repeat that the lessons in { 2- Peter } about the distant past are approximately the same as that which was spoken by Jude in his Epistle. Various critics have voiced their opinions and stated that these two Disciples had obviously copied from each other to teach the same thing.

43. Peter makes clear the Holy Spirit was using him to proclaim some of those things which transpired in the history of this world. One thing that we should recognize, is that these two writers wrote independently of each other and the Spirit of God put His Word into their minds of that which they should write! The Lord calls attention through Peter that in the past, Jehovah dealt in a judgmental manner with the wicked Angels and the carnal apostates who were disobedient and had defied Him. But, to the saved Believers who loved the Lord, Jehovah delivered them from the hands of the devil and placed them under His own protection. The words in the Epistle of Jude are very similar to that of Peter, but testimony and the purpose are somewhat different. As we have said . . . the Apostle Peter speaks concerning the wicked Angels who had sinned and because of their sins were cast down into Tartarus [ Hell ]. Tartarus is evidently the lowest pit in Hades. They will remain there in chains of darkness until they will be judged and condemned to the 'Lake of Fire.' We have already mentioned this, but to enlarge on it, read on . . .

44. Only a small host of the wicked Angels are chained in Hades, Satan and the largest part of his angelic followers are still loose. The devil who is the wicked prince of this world, uses his demons and Angels in a skillful pursuit of deviltry in order to gain many more lost souls into his web of deceit. The wicked "Sons of God" were used to corrupt as many humans as possible, this is the main reason the Lord brought the 'great deluge [ of the flood' ] upon this world. It is reasonable to assume that the Lord hasn't revealed all the reasons of the flood and of the destruction of the first earth, but He gives us as much information as He deems necessary for us to have.

45. During the days of King Saul, the Israelites began the departure from the Lord Jehovah and an evil trend of pagan worship began. Because of this trend, after many years, the Hebrews fell into the hands of the carnal Gentiles. Many years later they became captives of their enemies during the Babylonian takeover of their land by the king of Babylon. As Scripture states, after a period of time in Babylon, a remnant of the Israelites, with permission of the king of that land, were given permission to leave the country and return to Israel that they again may build and restore portions of the Hebrew nation. But we for lack of space will not discuss what the people rebuilt in their land. Several hundred years later as the New Testament states . . . God the Father sent His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus, down to the earth that He might deliver His chosen Hebrew people. He came to give His life for lost humanity and was lifted up from the dead to . . . and by the glory of the Father that He might return once again to reclaim what belongs to Him. His desire is . . . that all humanity will be saved for the glory of God.

46. At His first coming, Jesus desired to become the Chosen King of His people. And, as we know, the nation rejected Him and put Him to shame by their deceit in having Him condemned to the Cross. Their words were, "We will not have this man to rule over us." So, as is stated, Jesus at the present time, is setting at the right hand of the Father in Heaven awaiting the time when He will return to reign as the rightful King of this planet. He Himself said that He would not return until the Hebrews would pray and say "Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord."

47. The Apostle Paul turned away from the Hebrews for the last time in { Acts 28:28 }, which was in AD. 63. The Hebrews had finally rejected the Lord Jesus for the last time before they were cast out into the nations of the world as outcast. Rejecting Paul's ministry and the teaching about Christ being the Messiah of Israel and of His offer of salvation for the nation, was their final act of rebellion against the Lord. Thus, the Lord Himself turned away from the people and likewise rejected them to their own fate. As we have taught in other messages the Israelites will be reinstated as the chosen people of God in a final act of the Lord Jesus at His Second Coming. The Lord after His rejection, crucifixion and resurrection, has turned primarily to the Gentiles to take a host out from both the Gentiles and Hebrews into His Called out Body of Christians which He calls "The One New Man," [ The Body of Christ ], { see Ephesians 2:15 }.

48. This purpose Jesus "Kept as a secret" until He made it known to the Apostle Paul { See Ephesians Ch. 3 }. Paul naturally has explained all this in the Epistles he has written for our understanding. Since the Body of Christ Period first began, there has been little said about the Giants and is seldom alluded to even by well-known Theologians. Neither are folks taught about the wicked Angels producing Giant offspring. It seems that Ministers pass over these Scriptures as if they aren't there, ignoring them altogether. On the other hand, we are warned of such things in { 1- Corinthians Ch. 11 } where women are advised to wear a covering on their head when coming into the presence of God in prayer and prophesying. Paul simply acknowledges that women are not authorized to pray or to worship in any other way than what is stated in { V. 5 of Ch 11 }. Paul's reasons are based on theology { head-ship, V. 3 }, the order in creation { V. 7-9 }, and the presence of Angels in the Congregation { V. 10 }. None of these reasons was based on contemporary social custom.

49. There are still times when evil as well as good Angels may be standing before God and also before people anywhere on this earth, and yes even in your own presence. Woman when in worship, would be safer wearing 'the sign [ head covering' ], signifying that she had been created for man and not for Angels. This is no difference than a woman wearing her wedding ring when she travels among men other than her husband, signifying that she belongs to her husband only. The covering over her head acknowledges the fact to Angels that they must understand and realize that she is under the protection of God. The ring lets other men know that the woman is under the protection of her [ head ], husband, and under the protection of her greater Head, Christ Jesus. Concerning your own future . . .

50. Are you and your loved ones ready? God is ready. Christ has prepared a home for you in Heaven. He wants you there. I believe that you want to go there. The Word of the Lord states . . .

=========================

51. Scripture: "He, that [ who ] being often reproved [ and ] hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy, { Proverbs 29:1 }."

=========================

52. If you will not listen and believe before the Resurrection of the Body of Christ, look what the Lord says about you. . .

=========================

53. { V. 10 }: Scripture "And with all deceivableness of [ unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception to ] unrighteousness in them that perish [ and are going to perdition, perishing ]; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [ They refused to believe the truth of God's Word ].

54. { V. 11 }: And for this cause God will send them [ a working error of ] strong delusion [ a misleading influence, of some type ], that they should believe a lie.

55. { V. 12 }: That they all might [ be judged and ] be 'damned [ condemned' ] who believed not [ and refused to adhere to trust and rely on ] the truth, but [ instead ] had pleasure in unrighteousness { 2- Thessalonians 2:10-12 }."

=========================

56. Scripture, { V. 8 }: "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. . . { V. 9 }: Not of works, lest any man should boast, { Ephesians 2:8-9 }."

57. Scripture, { V. 9 }: "But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him, { V. 10 }: But God has revealed them to us by His [ Holy ] Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God, { 1- Corinthians 2:9-10 }."

58. Commentary . . . The signs indicating the seven years of tribulation has already become evident before the Tribulation on a smaller scale, while increasing in intensity as the tribulation approaches. The signs serve the purpose of a clarion call to the Body of Christ to prepare for the coming of Christ as the Head of the Body in the air, and also to the unrepentant world not to continue shunning the grace of God { Heb. 2:3 }. When the signs that indicated the Tribulation Period only begin to become evident, people were to ready themselves for the Rapture. Plus, the Israelis are to ready themselves for the Second Coming of their Bridegroom Messiah { Luke 21:28 }. Both classes of people, the Body of Christ first and later Israel and the nations are to lift up their heads because their redemption is drawing near. We have given a list of final signs that indicate the nearness of the Rapture first, and seven years later the Second Coming, at the end of the seven year-long tribulation. Are you waiting and watching for this time to culminate?

59. Today, do not postpone your decision for Jesus Christ. Remember, it may be indeed too late tomorrow. Make use of it today, because if you really want the harmony and peace of the Lord in your heart, then you must prepare now. There must be a change of authority in your mind and that change will determine eternity. To put it briefly, you either will spend eternity in everlasting, never-ending punishment or in never-ending eternal glory with your Lord.

60. Scripture { V. 16 }: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. { V. 17 }: For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved, { John 3:16-17 }."

61. Scripture: "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast { Ephesians 2:8-9 }."

63. Commentary . . . My dear sinner friend, will you wait too late? Will you continue to reject God's love and mercy? How much longer do you expect God to show mercy toward you. How good God has been to you to spare you as long as He has. Were it not for His mercy you would be screaming in Hell for just one drop of water to cool your scorched and burning tongue. Will you repent too late? God help you not to put off your salvation. Receive Jesus now by faith as your Lord and Saviour. In order to be positive of your own Salvation, we would ask you to "Please" read and pray the following prayer and if you really believe and accept in your heart [ mind ] what you have read and have spoken these words in this prayer with a contrite mind to God the Father, you will have become a Child of God! . . .

[ No. 227 ]: The Sinners Prayer For Salvation . . .

64. Heavenly Father, I know that I'm a lost sinner and that I cannot save myself by good works. I believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son Who came down from Heaven and took on a human body of flesh and was born of the Virgin Mary. I believe that Jesus shed His blood on the Cross of Calvary and died paying the price for my sins with His death so that I can receive salvation because and through His sacrifice. I believe that after Christ's sacrifice and death, He arose from the tomb after three literal days and nights. That Jesus ascended into the third Heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father. I believe that Jesus will return for all Saints who belong to the Body of Christ in the Resurrection [ Rapture, 'Rapere' ] according to His own promise! I know that I have been up to this time a lost sinner and deserved to go to hell. So I beseech you Heavenly Father, send your Holy Spirit at this very moment into my heart and save me for Jesus Christ sake as has been promised me by Your Holy Word. I am receiving Jesus Christ at this very moment as my personal Saviour, my Lord and as my only blessed hope for salvation. Thank You Lord for now I am saved by Your wonderful grace. Amen!
