Why Did God Destroy the World? 4

The Work of the Fallen Angels and the Nephilim

When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” Genesis 6:1-7 (NIV)

The ancient book of The Watchers, written by Enoch, gives us great insight on what is taking place in Genesis 6.  Enoch tells us that an angel by the name Semjaza is identify as the leader of 200 fallen angels. Semjaza was very aware of the magnitude of the sin he was about to engage in; he stated, “I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deep, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.”[1] However, all of the angels decided to go forward with this great sin; their minds were made up. Enoch describes the horror of what mankind was going through during that time. 

And they became pregnant and they bare great giants…who consumed all the acquisition of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind…And they began to sin against birds, beast, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour oner another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawlessness ones.”[2]

This was a very sophisticated attack against humanity and God’s creation in general. We see men enslaved like never before in our history; we see men being literally eaten by these monsters and, we see our genetics and the genetic of the animals altered. They altered everything, including the plants. Enoch descriptions of these events are in line with God’s Word when it says, “… the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.” Genesis 6:11 (NIV). As we saw before, the word corrupt means alter, spoiled or ruined. The sophistication of these corruption is seen further in the fact that these fallen angels were teaching humans things that were never supposed to know.

  • Semjaza, the leader, taught men enchantments and root cutting: Enchantment and root cutting is all associated with diverse forms of witchcraft.
  • Armaros taught them the resolving of enchantments: (More witchcraft).
  • Baraqijal taught them astrology: This is the “claims to divine information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects.[3]” For example, the horoscope.
  • Kokabel taught them the constellation: This is “an area on the celestial sphere in which a group of visible stars forms a perceived outline or pattern, typically representing an animal, mythological person or creature, or an inanimate object.”[4]
  • Ezeqeel taught them knowledge of the clouds
  • Araqiel taught them the signs of the earth.
  • Shamsiel taught them the signs of the sun.
  • Sariel taught them the course of the moon.

There is a hidden mystery on these last four teachings by these fallen angels; however, have you ever wondered why it seems like every ancient civilization always end up worshipping the moon, the sky the sun, etc.?  Here we can see where those teachings come from. 

Beloved, never in the history of mankind have we seen the earth consumed with so much evil. But at the top of all this iniquity was an angel who was not mentioned as one of the chiefs fallen angels. He was not mentioned by name at all; but without a doubt, this fallen angel took a center place on the corruption of the human race. His name is Azazel. Enoch tells us that to Azazel “…ascribe all sin.”[5] We will talk about him in our next article.
