Genesis Chapter Six Verses 2-3

We already saw Satan entering the realm of animals and showing up indwelling a snake in the Garden. Now, Satan plans to move in to the bodies of males and then to marry beautiful women and to produce children. This would be a demon-dominated union, and a demon-dominated family.

Notice the word usage in Genesis 6:2. "he sons of God “saw” the daughters to be “attractive” (or good) and they “took.” Does that sound familiar? This parallels what happened in the Garden. In Genesis 3:5. Eve “saw that the fruit was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and she took and ate.

We can see that the demons and Satan are sticking to a playbook that has been proven to work. They simply run the same play from the fall! The lust this time is not fruit, but the bodies of beautiful women that the sons of God “saw” and took for themselves.

The picture is one of unmitigated lust. The word “took” does not suggest forced marriage or rape. This is a word that means a regular marriage union. One commentator observes that the “silence on the part of the ‘daughters’ may well reflected a willing complicity."

Notice that God’s response is toward man and not to the demons. God has a judgment for the demons, but man is accountable for allowing themselves to get this far. We will come back to the 120 years part here, but notice that God does not allow sin to go unchecked forever. 

But notice here that all of this happened as mankind slipped from seeking God and in the end, they end up seeking demons. Footholds of Satan can become strongholds. 

A foothold is simply giving Satan "space" to work in your life.

About the Podcast

My Bible Study
Verse by Verse Through The Bible
This has been a project I have been contemplating for a long time.

Join me in walking through the Bible on our personal Bible study - one verse at at time. There is no "preaching" here. Just simple scripture reading with brief explanations and examples of what the scripture mean.

I was inspired to do this project based upon the program "Through The Bible" with Dr. Jay Veron McGee (who is passed on to be with the Lord for several years now). When I first started to study the Bible, his radio program helped me immensely. It took Dr. McGee 5 years to do a complete Bible Study.

I do not know how long it will take us. But you can start listening at anytime. As I continue to add more episodes, you can join us at the most recent program or start at the beginning. Each episode is labeled as to the scriptures we are going to discuss.

I am so blessed you are here and I pray you will get a huge blessing as we join together in "MY BIBLE STUDY!"

You can also watch the corresponding YouTube videos that go with this Bible Study. I record them on FaceBook Live and load them to YouTube and the audio versions go here.
