Fallen Angels Attempt to Stop The Messiah’s First Advent


Genesis 6: 1-8 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose. And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented Jehovah that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah (ASV 1901).

The apostle Paul who recognized that demonic warfare was taking place in the spirit world warned us that we were the objects of their wrath (Ephesians 6: 10-13). One of earliest (after Satan’s success in the Garden of Eden) attacks to prevent to coming of the Messiah was the series of events recorded here in Genesis chapter six. The Lord Jesus warned His disciples that similar events would transpire when He was about to make His second advent to the earth in time and space (Matthew 24: 37). He also told them/us not to be deceived (Matthew 24: 4).

There are those who believe that the passage in Genesis Six refers to an unholy union of those from the line of Cain and the holy line of Seth. Proper exegesis of the Hebrew text does not yield this understanding.
