“+Marion Cheek you need to do a study into the Hebrew meaning of that word “sons of God” as it does not mean men sorry to say, but angels.”
Thank you for your kind inquiry.
To answer your question about the “Hebrew meaning of ‘sons of God'”:
Results for Hebrew word “sons” Strong’s 1121 – “ben” – which gives us the definition of:
1. “son, grandson, child, member of a group
2. son, male child
The root definition is from H1129:
1. to build, rebuild, establish, cause to continue
2. to build, rebuild
to build a house (ie, establish a family)
These are the first & second definitions & should be considered as the primary definitions. Primary definitions MUST be considered as the definition, especially in the face of overwhelming collaborating evidence (as in this case)
Here is an excerpt from my blog (plus I added some):
Some have misused the words: “the SONS of GOD” in Genesis 6:2-4:
“There were giants ✔️in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the SONS of GOD [God’s people from Adam’s line] came in unto the [DNA corrupted] daughters of [wicked] men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men [‘giants’] which were of old, men of renown.”
Paraprased: “Giant”s were formed, when God’s people (His holy line of “sons) were attracted to the “fair” (sexually alluring – 6:2) hybrid “daughters” of wicked “men” who gained “knowledge…of evil” from the “serpent,” Lucifer (3:4-5) & allowed their womb & eggs to be the laboratory for human-animal hybrid experimentation. (Evidence of same are seen on Egypt’s murals)
A) It is stated in Luke 3:38, that “Adam… was the son of God” – yet Lucifer would like nothing better, than to call himself, “the son of God” – he is insanely jealous.
•The correct Bible interpretation means specific followers of “God” – “his sons” – Romans 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
B) Demons can not be called “sons of God” – & neither are unfallen angels!
•Adam was first to be called “the son of God” (Luke 3:38), because he was made in God’s Image (Gen.1:26) but followers of Christ can also claim that title – 1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.”
•Adam had a purity of spirit and created with “perfect” DNA. So all those who kept this pure line, (pure spirit & pure DNA before the Flood) God called His “sons.”
After the Flood, the requirement leaned more toward the pure spirit, because corrupt DNA had crept into some.
After the cross, the main requirement is spiritual purity, in that we have little control over our DNA & you can bet (that more than likely) all today have corrupted DNA
YET, God expects that we NOT “confuse” our species any further (if it can be helped), as some in science are doing today! — such as transhumanism. Don’t buy into the lie that humans can be artificially upgraded! For it says in Philippians 2:15 that “…ye may be blameless and harmless, the SONS of GOD, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”
•Each person obedient to God, could be called His “sons” – even the heads of sinless, unfallen beings from distant Planets are called “the sons of God” as described in Job 1:6-8. Satan tried to claim that right, but God said that Job is that “perfect” example, AS in verses 6-8 – “…a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” and has that right to be called “the son of God” as a representative of Earth (not Lucifer, who stole Earth from us & rebuked by God, for thinking he had that right to represent our Earth)
Unfallen beings/ “the sons of God” on other worlds in our universe, And unfallen angels/“morning stars,” were present when God created the “foundations” of the Earth – Both rejoiced in God’s final creation of Earth (&man) some 6,000 years ago (Job 38:6-7). NOTE: angels are called “morning stars”
NO WHERE does God call ANY angel, “Son“ – IN FACT,
a. The Father emphatically stated in Hebrews 1:5: “For unto which of the angels said He at any time, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten thee?”
b. Angels were created as a different type. They were not created to be “sons.” They were created to be “ministers” ONLY (Hebrews 1:5-7,14)
c. Angels are “spirits” made of “flaming fire” Ps.104:4 says, it is God “Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming FIRE”
When you search the entire Bible – Old & New Testament:
• “Son of God” comes up 47 times – only 1 time in O.T. & 46 times in N.T. & ALL refer to Jesus, except for Luke 3:38 referring to “Adam, son of God.”
• “Sons of God” comes up 11 times – 5 times in O.T. & 6 times in N.T. & NONE make any reference to angels. AND, the ones that do make any reference, are those that say humans can become “sons of God”: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the SONS of GOD” (Romans 8:14).
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12)
LUCIFER was rebuked by God for attempting to place himself into that position, when God stated that Job, in fact, was the only most righteous man living on Earth deserving of such a title, as “son of God” (Gen.1:6-8; 2:1-3) – that’s why Lucifer wanted to kill him – because God called Job, “son of God”!
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the SONS of GOD: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now are we the SONS of GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is” (I Jn 3:1-2)
It’s not like God to confuse the language of His Bible. When He states an emphatic truth in one part of the Bible, not once, but 6 X, as in the case of “the SONS of GOD” – and then makes CLEAR references to same in the Old Testament & of course biding by His owns rules as laid out in Isaiah 28:9-10 & l8:20
“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” — “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them”
✔️How did these hybrid human-animals become “Giants”? The growth gene is sometimes switched off, when mixing two animal species. Some call it “hybrid vigor” – others call “giantism.” See this video on the “liger” – a lion & tiger cross:
NOTE that “Son of God” is the Title given to those who were the first created being of their Planet & chosen to represent same in heaven-based meetings:
• such as was Adam, until he lost that position (Luke 3:38)
• & which includes beings created first on each inhabited Planet in the cosmos (Job 38:7;1:6-9;2:1-3; Hebrews 11:1-3;1:1-3)
However, Jesus is the uncreated “Son of God” over ALL the Planets in this universe – in that He is “KING OF KINGS” (Revelation)
Because of Earth as a place of special creation & then our re-creation into Jesus’ Image, He has conferred that title (“son of God”) upon each believing soul.
This then is the new order of business. There is only one Earth. Adam lost his position as “son of God” here on this Planet, but Jesus won it for Himself. Yet, Jesus’ will give all of those called “sons of God,” Planets over which they will be Heads & Representatives.
