Luke 17:26-27 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
NOTE: It is pretty obvious, when studying scripture concerning Satan, that he has a great influence in this world today. He not only has an influence; he is, in fact,
«THE GOD OF THIS WORLD!»
II Corinthians 4:3-4 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Luke 4:1-13 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
And the devil said unto him,
If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season. (see Matthew 4:1-11 — bottom of this page)
NOTE: This world and the worldly system belongs to Satan for that it was delivered unto him. It will not be under God’s rule until the Second Coming of Christ.
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to
of the power of the air,
the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
John 16:7-11 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
I Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour;
NOTE: The bible states that Satan is the god of this world, the prince of the power of the air and that he walks about as a roaring lion. So, he is in the air; (the spirit that now worketh) he is in this same earth where we are and he is here right now. He is here because he was cast out of the third heaven.
NOTE: We know that Satan is here on this earth and we also know that he has a following or «his own angels.» The devil and his angels were at one time intended to be in the third heaven with God. That was their first estate; that was their habitation. They sinned, and when they sinned, they were cast out of heaven. Some of them were evidently cast directly to hell; and yet, some of them were just cast out of heaven. That gave them free rein upon the earth and in the atmosphere around the earth. (Satan still has access to the third heaven and will be cast out permanently during the great tribulation)
Revelation 2:8-10 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Revelation 2:12-13 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for
THE DEVIL and HIS ANGELS.
NOTE: Lucifer is cast out of heaven and cast down. He evidently comes out of the third heaven where he was and comes down to this earth. When he left it appears that some of the angels came with him.
Jude 1:6-9 And the ANGELS WHICH KEPT NOT THEIR FIRST ESTATE, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in the like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
NOTE: These angels had an estate or habitation and left it. «Which kept not their first estate» — «Left their own habitation.» They left the place where they should have been and came to this earth. These fallen angels are connected with Lucifer and some were cast out and have been reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the Day of Judgment. They have been reserved unto the judgment, which is to come. A part of the angels that were cast out were cast into hell and are bound in chains.
These fallen angels are connected with Satan. They’re connected with Lucifer, the devil, and they’re called «his angels.» As the Lord has His angels, the devil has his. As the Lord has His spirits, the devil has his.
They were cast out of heaven because of sin. We know that the devil’s angels are not all in hell because the Bible says he is the prince of the power of the air.
NOTE: There were angels or «sons of god» present at the creation.
Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.
Job 2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.
NOTE: Notice that «the sons of God» came with Satan. Some of these angels most probably were followers of Satan.
Job 38:1-7 THEN the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man: for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When THE MORNING STARS sang together, and ALL THE SONS OF GOD shouted for joy?
Revelation 6:13 And THE STARS OF HEAVEN fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
NOTE: These «Sons of God» who are mentioned in Job were with God during the six day creation. They were created beings but were around before Adam and Eve. We have God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Satan and these Sons of God (angels) ALL present during the six day creation.
These «sons of God» or angels are all men.
II Peter 2:4-11 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; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eight person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked. (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
NOTE: These angels sinned and left their first principality or place of dwelling and came to this earth. Exactly why they were cast down or what their sin was isn’t known for certain. It could be that when O Lucifer was cast out the fallen angels were a group that had plotted with him and were cast out for the same pride or the same reasons that Satan was cast out.
God spared not the angels that sinned. It is implied here that the angels at one time did not sin. Other angels that are still with God evidently haven’t sinned. Notice that these «angels that sinned» are connected with the flood of Noah’s day. (Spared not the old world, but saved Noah.)
Genesis 6:1-3 AND it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them. That the SONS OF GOD
saw the daughters of men that they were fair,
and THEY took unto took THEM wives of all which THEY chose.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
NOTE: Verse 3, «He also is flesh;» meaning that man is also flesh; «IN ADDITION TO THE SONS OF GOD» being flesh; man is also flesh.
Genesis 6:4-13 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 bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repented me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. and Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for
THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH VIOLENCE
and, behold, I will destroy
with the earth.
NOTE: The «Sons of God» fell and when they fell they came to the earth as «FALLEN ANGELS.» They came with Lucifer to this earth. They came and they committed fornication with «the daughters of men» and their offsprings were giants, «men of renown.» They were destroyed with the earth; «I will destroy them with the earth.» Notice that the earth was filled with violence through THEM and the earth was destroyed because of THEM. The pronoun, «Them,» is probably making reference to the «Men of Renown.»
It is believed by some Bible scholars that either these «Sons of God» or their offspring the «Men of Renown» may have had sex with animals which could explain the origin of the «little green men» who are seen with the «UFO» sightings.
One thing we know for certain, whatever happened in the «Days of Noah» will be happening again:
Luke 17:26-27 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, THEY MARRIED WIVES, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Notice that they were marrying «wives,» not virgins.
QUESTION: There were «sons of God» (angels) here before the flood, which perished in the flood. There were «evil angels» after the flood and there were «giants» on the earth after the flood. Is it possible that these «sons of god» will come back once again to cohabit with the daughters of men?
Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
NOTE: What happened before will happen again, IT WILL BE — AS IT WAS in the days of Noah.
Daniel 2:40-43 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay,
THEY SHALL MINGLE THEMSELVES
WITH THE SEED OF MEN:
but THEY SHALL NOT CLEVE ONE TO ANOTHER,
even as iron is not mixed with clay.
NOTE: Daniel 2:43 «they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men» is an event which will take place in the future.
Daniel 11:36-39 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the GOD OF FORCES: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory:
and he shall cause
to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
I Corinthians 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
Exodus 15:11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Psalms 82:1-8 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. They know not, neither will they understand: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
NOTE: All the foundations of the earth are out of course; (this happens during the great tribulation). The children of the most High are called gods (sons of God). «I have said, ye are gods, and all of you are CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.» These sons (children) of God will die LIKE MEN, they are fallen angels. Arise, O God, judge the earth, (Second Coming) for thou shalt inherit all nations (Second Coming).
II Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
I Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
Revelation 12:7-8 And there was
war in heaven:
Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and
THE DRAGON FOUGHT and HIS ANGELS,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out
INTO THE EARTH, and HIS ANGELS
were cast out WITH HIM.
NOTE: This «war in heaven» is a future event. Notice that Satan and his angels will be CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH. There is another group of angels coming TO THIS VERY EARTH. It is quite possible that GIANTS could show up on this earth once again. This can’t be known for sure: but we do know that, «As it was in the DAYS OF NOAH, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man.» What better way for the Antichrist to push himself off as Christ than to come from outer space with a group of his supermen?
God will do as He has done in the past and will cast Satan and his angels out of heaven and into this earth.
Psalms 78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending EVIL ANGELS among them.
ANSWER: When Israel had a rebellious heart, God sent «evil angels» among them. He may very well send them to the world once again in the future. These Sons of God (Angels) of II Peter 2:4-11 & Jude 1:6-7 are 33-year-old males, without wings, and can cohabit with women, and reproduce. A new group of these Sons of God will come to this planet sometime in the not too distant future. They will come back to this earth in the «likeness of men» and «it will be as it was in the days of Noah.»
