Noah and the Nephilim
When thrown to the vicinity of the earth, most demons followed Satan, but a remnant took a different turn. A portion of the fallen angels was the catalyst for the flood.
However, this is the part I call “hidden” because most Christians are not aware of these fallen ones:
These are the demons who saw the daughters of the earth and found them beautiful and took them for themselves. Co-habitating and having children who were an abomination to God. They were a mixed breed of humans and demons.
“the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves from all whom they chose.” (Genesis 6:2, MKJV).
These were the evil angels since they did not maintain their original estate but abandoned their proper place.
This action went against God’s creation. The offspring of this corrupted union was known as the Giants of the earth (the Nephilim), they were also malicious and used their strength accordingly.
“And Jehovah repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was angry to His heart.” (Genesis 6:6, MKJV).
These giants were the offspring of the mating of the demons and daughters of men.
“And Jehovah 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 I repent that I have made them.” (Genesis 6:7, MKJV).
He seemed willing to destroy His creation that became polluted with the actions of these angels.
Hence, these angels, in defiance, ruptured the natural set of order in which God instituted. The punishment for that disobedience was imprisonment in the nether lands until Judgment Day.
Nevertheless, only Noah found favor with the Lord.
“But Noah found grace in the eyes of Jehovah. (Genesis 6:8, MKJV)
Surrounding Noah and his families were the evil and violent giants of the earth. Noah was a preacher of righteousness against this twisted generation of the defiance of God’s creation. He stood his ground and worshipped Jehovah.
Jehovah trusted Noah to build an enormous boat on dry land. This Ark that Noah built was to God’s specifications, and it took less than 75 years.
“And God made the expanse, and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.” (Genesis 1:7, MKJV).
Because of how the Lord created the earth, there was a great deal of moisture surrounding the earth’s atmosphere.
“And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear; and it was so.” (Genesis 1:9, MKJV).
Now the Nephilim and the rest of humankind laughed at Noah and his family as they built the ark on land. They had no idea the waters would be a deluge from the atmosphere.
Consequently, the rain filled the earth, and everything died except the sea creatures.
When it was over, a giant rainbow appeared, and Jehovah made a covenant with Noah.
“I set my rainbow in the cloud. And it shall be a token of a covenant between Me and the earth.” (Genesis 9:13, MKJV).
This was the new beginning.
