Who are the Biblical Angels? – A Critical Perspective, (#12)

Category: 

In paper #10 of this series, I demonstrated how the fallen angels of Gen. 6:1-4 had sexual relations with the daughters of Adam-man, producing giants [i.e., Nephilim, meaning “fallen ones”]. In 1936, there was a giant born to Edomite-jewish parents in Tel Aviv who later immigrated to New York, and the news of this was a sensation in the late 1930s and early 40s in the United States. At that time many believed gigantism was due to a thyroid malfunction. However, it is a genetic condition caused by hybridization. For this I will cite the 1980 Collier’s Encyclopedia, vol. 12, pp. 68-78 in part:

HEREDITY, the tendency, recognized by common observation, for offspring to resemble their parents. This phenomenon is obvious at the species level: roses always beget roses and horses always beget horses. Although slightly less obvious, the same is also true within a species: thus, tall parents tend to have tall children. However, there are many exceptions to the simple statement that ‘like begets like,’ and the rules of inheritance were long a puzzle. Over the past hundred years [from 1980], scientists have gradually unraveled many of the mysteries of inheritance, and the study of heredity, called genetics, is now a major branch of science.

Early Concepts:Until the end of the 19th century, both popular opinion and scientists recognized two general principles of heredity, both of which are now known to have been incorrect. The first ‘principle’ was that of blending inheritance: each parent was supposed to contribute a certain quantity of some hereditary characteristic, and the offspring was supposed to be some sort of average between the two. Thus, a blend of coffee and cream would have been used as an example to describe the inheritance of skin color in man.

“The second ‘principle’ was that the offspring inherited the actual characteristics, or traits, of their parents. This view also implied the doctrine of the inheritance of acquired characteristics. For example, if some organ, such as muscle, was well developed in the parent due to exercise or proper food, it was believed that this would produce stronger muscles in the offspring. The English naturalist Charles Darwin, in attempting to explain this ‘fact,’ proposed that tiny particles, called pangenes, were produced by each organ and converged into the eggs and sperm, forming there a sort of precursor of each organ that was then passed on to the offspring. From this hypothesis, it followed that amputation of a body part would remove the source of such pangenes and cause the reduction or absence of that part in the offspring. Obviously, however, amputations are not inherited, and to account for cases of this kind special explanations were invented. Other cases of seemingly irregular inheritance were explained by atavism, a mysterious tendency to revert to some more or less distant ancestor, even though this explanation contradicted the idea of the inheritance of acquired characteristics.

In paper #10 of this series, I demonstrated how the fallen angels of Gen. 6:4 had sexual relations with the daughters of Adam-man, producing giants [i.e.,Nephilim, meaning “fallen ones”]. My best evidence was from Gesenius’ Lexicon where it is stated, in part: “(a) ... ‘to enter unto a woman ... Gen. 6:4’...”, and with ב,to enter into (one’s body)”, plus “to have intercourse with anyone ....”, plus “...to put in, to insert ...”

Actually, the human body naturally produces opioids, taken up through opioid receptors in the brain, which induce the desire for sexual intercourse – the same for hunger and the fight-or-flight instinct. If not for these chemical inducements we would starve, fail to reproduce, and succumb to predation. For more on this, I will cite the following websites:

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/05/26/sugar-affects-leptin-signals.aspx

Why We Eat More than We Are Supposed To:

50,000 years or more, humans relied on the hormone leptin to send signals to the brain to regulate what we ate; leptin tells your brain when you’ve had enough to eat. [Who can prove “50,000 years”? C.A.E.]

It is very important that your brain is able to accurately ‘hear’ the messages leptin sends it, as otherwise your brain thinks you’re starving and will continue to feel hungry; in recent years, many people have become unable to ‘hear’ leptin’s message to stop eating because excess sugar calories are stored as leptin-releasing fat, and the resulting chronic elevation in leptin levels eventually lead to leptin-resistance.

Since paper #’s 3, 4 & 5 of this series, I have been working under the premise that:

... The only thing that I can imagine is, Yahweh must have given His male angels all of the abilities of His male creations, except the part of the body that produces natural opioids which stimulate the sex drive in humans. Without these, the male angels would have had no desire for sexual intercourse. Evidently, the third of the angels that rebelled against Yahweh and fell found aphrodisiac-stimuli in some type of vegetation to jump-start their sexual desires!”

Until someone reveals something more plausible, I will continue this same premise. The following is part of what I wrote in my essay The Battle For The Priesthood, which is important for the subject of the fallen angels fits somewhat here:

Inasmuch as we understand that Eve was the mother of both Cain and Abel, it is obvious that Cain was the firstborn of the serpent (i.e., Satan), and that Abel was the firstborn of Adam.

This will be the 9th paper in this series and we will dwell on the subject of the presence of Yahweh’s manifestations and attributes among His people, Israel. The greater part of churchianity are under the delusion that Almighty Yahweh is a “trinity” of three different “persons”. Rather, Yahweh is One Almighty in several manifestations! It is true that Yahweh includes Father, Son and Holy Spirit as three of His manifestations, but there are many more manifestations and attributes than just these three. Isaiah 7:14 & 9:6 state:

Therefore Yahweh himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel .... For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty ElH410, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Next, at Acts 7:30-33 we observe that Yahweh Almighty manifested Himself as “a flame of fire” thusly:

30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sinai an angel of Yahweh in a flame of fire in a bush. 31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of Yahweh came unto him, 32Saying, I am the Almighty of thy fathers, the Almighty of Abraham, and the Almighty of Isaac, and the Almighty of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. 33 Then said Yahweh to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.”

From the context of this passage the “angel of Yahweh” was either a mouthpiece for Yahweh, or Yahweh Himself. However, the “fire” was definitely one of the manifestations of Almighty Yahweh. As one can clearly see, we now have four manifestations of Yahweh; not just three! Take note of this, as there are many places in the KJV that translate this as “the angel of god” or “the angel of the Lord”. Therefore, the context of each passage using these phrases must be taken into consideration, whether it be an angel or Yahweh Himself. Hence, it is paramount that we make every effort to completely comprehend our subject thoroughly!

This will be the 8th paper in this series and we will take up the subject of an angel who intervened with Jacob, at Gen. 31:1-16, who reassured him against the attempts of Laban to cheat him of his well earned wages thusly:

1 And he heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our father’s; and of that which was our father’s hath he gotten all this glory. 2 And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as before. (i.e., as before: Heb. as yesterday and the day before)3 And Yahweh said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee. 4 And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his flock, 5 And said unto them, I see your father’s countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the Almighty of my father hath been with me. 6 And ye know that with all my power I have served your father. 7 And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but the almighty suffered him not to hurt me. 8 If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all the cattle bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be thy hire; then bare all the cattle ringstraked. 9 Thus the Almighty hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to me. 10 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled. (i.e., rams: or, he goats)11 And the angel of the Almighty spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I. 12 And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee. 13 I am the Almighty of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred. 14 And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father’s house? 15 Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath sold us, and hath quite devoured also our money. 16 For all the riches which the Almighty hath taken from our father, that is ours, and our children’s: now then, whatsoever the Almighty hath said unto thee, do ....”

This will be the 7th paper in this series and we will dwell on the subject of “Satan”, as the term is greatly misunderstood, many believing there is no such being known as “Satan”. To start this thesis, I will quote from an unlikely, but in this case, an unbiased source, the 1980 Collier’s Encyclopedia, vol. 8, p. 166, under the general title “Devil”:

... The origin of these demons is traced to the fall of the angelic watchers, the ‘sons of God,’ who corrupted themselves with the ‘daughters of men’ (1st Enoch chs. vi-x, referring to Gen. vi:1-6). The author of the Wisdom of Solomon is the first to identify Satan with the serpent in the third chapter of Genesis (Wisdom of Solomon ii:23-24). Asmodeus, the evil spirit in Tobit iii: 8, probably represents the Devil. His name is ‘Mastema’ in the pseudepigraphical Book of Jubilees, and ‘Sammael’ in III Baruch and the Ascension of Isaiah.

In papers #’s 3, 4 & 5 of this series, I have been working under the premise that:

... The only thing that I can imagine is, Yahweh must have given His male angels all of the abilities of His male creations, except the part of the body that produces natural opioids which stimulate the sex drive in humans. Without these, the male angels would have had no desire for sexual intercourse. Evidently, the third of the angels that rebelled against Yahweh and fell found aphrodisiac-stimuli in some type of vegetation to jump-start their sexual desires!”

A few years ago I had written an article entitled The problem With Genesis 4:1, which might fit in quite well with our present topic! In that exposé, I cited three sufficient sources to demonstrate that Gen. 4:1 had been corrupted somewhere along the line, as the context doesn’t harmonize with the rest of Scripture.

The KJV reads: “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.”

William Finck, researching the Hexapla found further evidence that Gen. 4:1 is ambiguous:

William is referring to my paper, The Problem With Genesis 4:1, and interprets this evidence thusly:

If one does not have papers #’s 1, 2, 3 & 4 of this series, it is paramount that these papers in this study be obtained and reviewed in order to comprehend where we are, at the present time!

As I was nearing the end paper #3, I was discussing the possibility of the fallen angels using aphrodisiac plant-based stimuli to jump-start their sexual desires, and I stated the following, (which I have upgraded):

... The only thing that I can imagine is, Yahweh must have given His male angels all of the abilities of His male creations, except the part of the body that produces natural opioids which stimulate the sex drive in humans. Without these, the male angels would have had no desire for sexual intercourse. Evidently, the third of the angels that rebelled against Yahweh and fell found aphrodisiac-stimuli in some type of vegetation to jump-start their sexual desires!”

I quotedThe 1st Book of Enoch 7:1-11, to support that possibility of using opioids, and v. 10 is particularly significance:“Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantation, and the dividing of roots and trees.”

While Martin Abegg Jr., Peter Flint & Eugene Ulrich didn’t include The 1st Book of Enoch in their Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, I do, though, have the Dead Sea Scroll fragment facsimiles in their original language, and on the opposite page a translation in a set of two volumes entitled The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition by Florentino García Martínez & Eibert J.C. Tigchelaar, vol. 1, pp. 399-409, (The 1st Book of Enoch).We are interested in Dead Sea Scroll #’s (4Q202II; 4Q204II) in part:

Page 403: “... Th[ey and th]eir [ch]iefs [all took for themselves] 14 women, from all they chose, and [they began to penetrate them, to be defiled by them] 15 and to teach them sorcery, [incantations and the cutting of roots and to explain herbs.] 16 They became pregnant by them and gave [birth to giants .... They began to sin and to ...] 20 against all the birds and [animal]s of [the] earth [and (against) the reptiles who move upon the earth and in the waters] 21 [and in] the sky/ and the fish of the sea ....” Although fragmented, this is substantial evidence that not only did the fallen angels corrupt their genetics by mixing with the daughters of Adam-man, but they also corrupted their genetics with animals, birds and reptiles! The Book of Jasher, 4:18, alludes to this stating in part: “... took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice ... took from the cattle of the earth, the beast of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other ....”

As I was nearing the end of paper #3, I was discussing the possibility of the fallen angels using synthetic opiates from some type of vegetation to jump-start their sexual desire, which I have updated thusly:

It may be conjecture on my part, but I can envision Yahweh creating all of His host of angels in the male gender, which is Biblical. Although, on the other hand, Yahweh didn’t create for these male angels a counterpart, or a female angel. As we have already observed, the angels could, and did have sexual intercourse with White Adamic women. The only thing that I can imagine is, Yahweh must have given His male angels all of the abilities of His male creations, except the part of the body that produces natural opioids which stimulate the sex drive in humans. And without these, the male angels would have no desire for sexual intercourse. Evidently, the third of the angels that rebelled against Yahweh and fell, found stimuli in some type of vegetation to jump-start their sexual desires!”

To understand opiates, we really need to key-in on the word “opioid” as found in the 1996 Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary, thusly:

o-pi-oid ..., n. Biochem Pharm. 1. any opiumlike substance. 2.any of a group of natural substances, as the endorphins produced by the body in increased amounts in response to stress and pain. 3. any of several synthetic compounds as methadone having effects similar to natural opium alkaloids and their derivatives –adj. 4. pertaining to such a substance. [1955-60; opi(um) + -oid] #2 includes eating and sexual intercourse, along with many other bodily functions!

I will now quote The 1st Book of Enoch 7:1-11, to support that possibility of using synthetic opiates:

1 It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful (Gen. 6:1-2). 2 And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamored of them, saying to each other: Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children. 3 Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; 4 And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. 5 But they answered him and said: We all swear; 6 And bind ourselves by mutual execrations, that we will not change our intention, but execute our projected undertaking. 7 Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves by mutual execrations. Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of Mount Armon. 8 That mountain, therefore, they called Armon, because they had sworn upon it, and bound themselves by mutual execrations, 9 These are the names of their chiefs: Samyaza, who was their leader, Urakabarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Sarakuyal, Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anane, Zavebe, Samsaveel, Ertael, Turel, Yomyael, Arazyal. These were the prefects of the two hundred angels, and the remainder were all with them. 10 Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantation, and the dividing of roots and trees. 11 And they conceiving brought forth giants. (Gen. 6:4-6) ....”

As I was nearing the end of paper #2, I was discussing the visibility and the invisibility of angels, and of Yahshua Christ in His resurrected body – which is the kind of immortal body we will receive in our next life. Whether or not, in our new immortal bodies, we will be able to disappear and, then reappear at our own discretion in a different location is not fully clear. If such should be the case, our present mode of travel (i.e., automobiles, trains, airplanes, even horseback) would become obsolete! But for moving materials and merchandise, it would seem we might still need roads, bridges, railroad tracks, ships, airplanes, along with airports. But all of this is simply conjecture.

Imagine a woman being resurrected, who lived during the middle-ages in a dark, damp, cold hut of one or two rooms heated by a crude fireplace which served for cooking in a cast-metal pot over the fire, with no running water, but wooden buckets were used for bringing in water for drinking, cooking and washing dishes, suddenly finding herself in an evenly heated home with a kitchen with hot and cold running water, automatic dishwasher, refrigerator, electric or gas kitchen range with a thermostat controlled oven, and an electric powered food-mixer, and many other kitchen appliances.

Concerning this, I should cite 1 Corinthians 2:9:

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which the Almighty hath prepared for them that love him.”

We will begin this second part of our theme by citing the 1894 9th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, vol. 2, p. 25, under the title “Angel” [with some corrections in brackets] where it states in part:

ANGEL is a transcription of the Greek ang´-el-os, a messenger, but in signification corresponds to the special theological sense which the latter word assumed among the Hellenistic Jews [sic Judaeans] (and hence in the New Testament and in Christian writings), by being adopted as the translation of the Hebrew Mal’akh. Thus both name and notion of angel go back to the Old Testament.

The Old Testament belief in angels has two sides, being on the one hand, a particular development of the belief in special manifestations of God to man; and on the other hand, a belief in the existence of superhuman beings standing in a peculiar relation of nearness to God. These two sides of the doctrine are historically associated, and cooperate in the later developments of Biblical angelology, but are not in all parts of the Old Testament fused into perfect unity of thought.

There are an age-long kaleidoscope of concepts on this subject, some like the Sadducees, who reject the very existence of angels (Acts 23:8). This is a very extensive topic, and will require several papers to resolve all of the difficulties we are bound to encounter.

To start with, we will examine the Hebrew and Greek words for “angel/s” as used in the Scripture on this matter, for otherwise we may arrive at a mistaken conclusion. So please carefully note the following:

From Strong’s #“H4397 ... mal’ak,mal-awk´; from an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger, specifically of God, that is, an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher):– KJV renderings: ambassador, angel, king, messenger.”

Were Jeremiah & Zedekiah’s Daughters Cursed When Driven To Egypt?

Category: 

Here is a topic that hardly anyone cares to address for a lack of knowledge on the subject! To kickstart this topic, I will cite Jeremiah 43:4-7 thusly:

... 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of Yahweh, to dwell in the land of Judah. 5 But Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Judah, that were returned from all nations, whither they had been driven, to dwell in the land of Judah; 6Even men, and women, and children, and the king’s daughters, and every person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch the son of Neriah. 7 So they came into the land of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of Yahweh: thus came they even to Tahpanhes ...”

It’ll Be More Blessed to Be “Left Behind”!

Category: 

Many are disillusioned today, believing that it would be a tragedy if one were to be “left behind” at the Second Advent of Yahweh Christ. Actually, just the opposite is true, as he who is “left behind” will be preserved. We will start this discussion by citing Matt. 24:36-42 thusly:

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of Adam be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Master doth come.”

We will start this essay by quoting Brenton’s Septuagint at Song of Solomon 5:9-12:

9 What is thy kinsman more than another kinsman, O thou beautiful among women? what is thy kinsman more than another kinsman, that thou hast so charged us? 10 My kinsman is white and ruddy, chosen out from myriads. 11 His head is as very fine gold, his locks are flowing, black as a raven. 12 His eyes are as doves, by the pools of [blue] waters, washed with [white] milk, sitting by the pools.” [brackets mine]

The KJV renders this same passage thusly:

9 What is thy beloved [kinsman] more than another beloved [kinsman], O thou fairest3303 among women? what is thy beloved [kinsman] more than another beloved [kinsman], that thou dost so charge us? 10 My beloved [kinsman] is white and ruddy122, the chiefest among ten thousand. 11 His head is as the most fine [white] gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. 12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the [blue] rivers of waters, washed with [white] milk, and fitly set.” [brackets mine]

The Problem with Isaiah 17:10

THE PROBLEM WITH ISAIAH 17:10  By: Clifton A. Emahiser

 In order to understand this verse of Scripture, it is necessary to understand that the Bible is written in a special secret code so that not all who read or hear it will understand. Yes, you are reading this right, it is not intended that all who read the Bible or hear it quoted should understand it! Yes, you probably have been taught that the Bible is directed and intended to all people, but this is not so! It was not intended for the blacks of Uganda, Nigeria or the Congo! It was not intended for the Mongolian slant eyed gooks of Asia. It was not intended for the Aborigine of Australia. It was not intended for the Eskimos or Indians. It was not intended for the serpent race of Jews. Although the Scriptures have been in their, the Jew’s, hands for thousands of years, they still do not understand them. The Holy Scriptures were only intended for the White Anglo-Saxon European Caucasian Race. Oh the futile useless efforts that have been wasted in trying to convert these ethnic profane heathen. The Bible is a mystery also to the unrepentant of the Whites as long as they insist on worshipping false gods. It is only when they finally recognize Yahweh as their Father that they will ever begin to understand the message of the Bible.

The Angels That Sinned "Chained in Darkness", Part 5

Category: 

With this 5th paper, we are going to continue this often neglected subject, which many twist and contort until no reasonable rationale can be made of it. With this edition, we shall resume with Clifton L. Fowler’s The Angels That Sinned, written in 1929, and reprinted by Dan Gayman of the Church of Israel in 1992. Again, as we will see, Fowler was amazingly way ahead of his time on this subject, although he did have blind spots in certain areas which I will address. He divided his 31 page booklet into seven subchapters thusly:

I. The Angels That Sinned Were At One Time Angels Of Righteousness And Glory.

II. The Angels That Sinned Were Disobedient In The Days Of Noah.

III. The Angels That Sinned Are The Same As The Sons Of God Of Genesis Six.

IV. The Angels That Sinned, Sinned In Like Manner To Sodom And Gomorrha.

V. The Angels That Sinned Became The Progenitors Of The Giants.

VI. The Angels That Sinned Particularly Aimed At The Pollution Of The Women Of The Race.

VII. The Angels That Sinned Are Now Imprisoned In Tartarus Awaiting Judgment.”

On pages 11-16, Fowler addressed a misconception of Scripture under the subtitle:

III. The Angels That Sinned Are The Same As The Sons Of God Of Genesis Six.

The passage in Genesis 6 has been for many a long day, a theological battleground. However, in the light of the self-interpreting feature of the Scriptures, it seems quite unnecessary that such multiplicity of these theological battles should ever have been waged. The passage follows:

“‘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 them wives of all which they chose. And Yahweh said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 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’, (Genesis 6:1-4).

The question over which the severest disputation has occurred is – ‘Who are these ‘sons of God,’ who saw the ‘daughters of men,’ and proceeded to marry them?’ The answer which has become most familiar is that they are the ‘sons of Seth’ and that the ‘daughters of men’ are the ‘daughters of Cain.’

The Angels That Sinned "Chained in Darkness", Part 4

Category: 

With this 4th paper, we are going to continue this oft-neglected topic which many regard as being of little importance, and give it only a once-over surface reading. In this edition, we shall continue to scrutinize Clifton L. Fowler’s The Angels That Sinned, written in 1929 and reprinted by Dan Gayman of the Church of Israel in 1992. As we will see, Fowler was amazingly way ahead of his time on this subject, although he did fall short in certain areas which I will address. He divided his 31 page booklet into seven subchapters thusly:

I. The Angels That Sinned Were At One Time Angels Of Righteousness And Glory.

II. The Angels That Sinned Were Disobedient In The Days Of Noah.

III. The Angels That Sinned Are The Same As The Sons Of God Of Genesis Six.

IV. The Angels That Sinned, Sinned In Like Manner To Sodom And Gomorrha.

V. The Angels That Sinned Became The Progenitors Of The Giants.

VI. The Angels That Sinned Particularly Aimed At The Pollution Of The Women Of The Race.

VII. The Angels That Sinned Are Now Imprisoned In Tartarus Awaiting Judgment.”

On pages 19-23, Fowler writes of what he calls:

V. The Angels That Sinned Became The Progenitors Of The Giants thusly:

The giants of the days of old were not imaginary, they were awful realities. The corrupt, sinful, and voluptuous giants which move through the legendary pages of Babylonian, Greek, and Roman Mythology as heathen deities, have their origin and foundation in fact. The giants existed. Many of the heathen yarns about them are doubtless inventions, but back of the mass of myth, legend, and saga with which this subject is loaded, stands the testimony of both archaeology and Scripture that there once trod upon this old earth a race of beings of stupendous stature, who mysteriously appeared, flourished for a season, in spite of their great size, prodigious strength, and supernatural knowledge, proved, finally, to be sterile and hence incapable of reproduction. They were not overcome by their enemies, they simply died out. And when they were gone, the stories of their impure and mighty deeds, artfully expanded and embellished, became the basis for the heathen religions of all the nations of the ancient day. Heathen mythology is not one hundred percent myth. When traced back to its fountainhead we find a beginning of solid fact.

The Angels That Sinned "Chained in Darkness", Part 3

Category: 

With this 3rd paper, we are going to show that there is more to the story of “the angels that sinned” which are “chained in darkness” than meets the eye. The angels that sinned are presently among us on earth as walking, genetic, Biblical violations in shoeleather (today probably in football or basketball shoes).

With this issue, we will continue to scrutinize a 31 page booklet entitled The Angels That Sinned, written in 1929 by Clifton L. Fowler, and reprinted by Dan Gayman of the Church of Israel in 1992. While the author gets a lot of things right, he falls slightly short of understanding the sexual seduction of Eve in the garden of Eden which brought about “the seed of the serpent” at Gen. 3:15. He divided his booklet into seven subchapters thusly:

I. The Angels That Sinned Were At One Time Angels Of Righteousness And Glory.

II. The Angels That Sinned Were Disobedient In The Days Of Noah.

III. The Angels That Sinned Are The Same As The Sons Of God Of Genesis Six.

IV. The Angels That Sinned, Sinned In Like Manner To Sodom And Gomorrha.

V. The Angels That Sinned Became The Progenitors Of The Giants.

VI. The Angels That Sinned Particularly Aimed At The Pollution Of The Women Of The Race.

VII. The Angels That Sinned Are Now Imprisoned In Tartarus Awaiting Judgment.”

On pages 5-8, Fowler (although with a couple of errors which I will address), stated thusly:

I. The Angels That Sinned Were At One Time Angels Of Righteousness And Glory:
