Are Angels Sexless?

by Kate

The sin of the angels mating with human women & creating the nephilim was so bad that God bound them in chains in tartarus until the judgement. In light of that, other fallen angels would probably not have wanted the same fate, so I don't think they mated with women again after the flood.


Probably, one of Noah's son's wives had tainted genes since the earth was so corrupt that everyone else was destroyed. The sons wouldn't have had many women to choose from & that may be how giants continued after the flood. The genes that were passed on were watered down from the first generation nephilim (half human, half angel) to the rephaim, to the zamzummin, anakim, etc.

Maybe the names describe the amount of nephilim genes they may have had in them. The Bible does not say that angels are sexless & can't have sex. There are male & female angels according to Zechariah 5:9. Jesus says that we will neither give nor be given in marriage but will be like the angels in heaven.

Why would he say that if there were only men angels? Apparently they can't procreate little angels, but they can procreate with humans. We just won't be having sex there because it was apparently intended to be a mortal activity.

The giants came again after the flood NEW
by: Anonymous

The Bible clearly tells us there was 'another irruption' of the fallen angels in this verse--"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---" (meaning this also happened AGAIN AFTER THE FLOOD OF NOAH) (Genesis 6:4)

Angels do to have bodies!
by: SirRayIV

Angels have been the topic of many stories in the Bible where they did indeed have bodies. The Angels sent to escort Lot out of the city of Soddom before it was destroyed are a perfect example. How about the Angel that was wrestling Jacob all night?

Disembodied spirits that roam the earth are Demons. These are the evil spirits of the Nephilim. When they die, their spirits stay here on earth. These are the dead offspring of the fallen watchers and human women.

There are several different types of Angels listed in the Bible, and they all have bodies!

Luke 34:29
by: SirRayIV

Luke 24:39 Behold mine hands and my feet: for it is I myself: handle me, and see: for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Jesus was not describing or talking about an angel in this verse, he was talking about a spirit, which is what a dead person is when they die. A disembodied spirit does not have flesh or bones, Jesus was pointing out that he had a body, and was therefore not a demon or disembodied spirit.

Angels Have No Bodies
by: Anonymous

Luk 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

They have no bodies. They are spirits. Neither male nor female. And there was a type of unification. But it was not sexual. If your interested I have three pages on here titled Non-Enoch look at Genesis 6, Nephilim and son's of God.

Spirit beings can't have sex. They're like the air that you breathe. Like the wind. They're not physical. And the spirit within you and me is the same.

Are Angels Sexless?
by: Louis (London)

Hello Kate,

You have some reasonable points as concerns angels.



The Bible clearly states that the entire world was populated by Noah's three sons. Consequently, if one of them/all of them was "tainted as nephilim" then the whole world since then is in serious trouble.

Every person born, therefore, from that period until this day will be merely half human which means it would have rendered an irrelevance for the Messiah to have come.

Eight people entered the ark: Noah and his wife; his three sons and their three wives. If your theory is correct, it could as well mean that:

1. All the women were "tainted".

2. Two of the women were "tainted"

3. One woman was "tainted".

And most frighteningly: all the women were "tainted". This clearly is untrue as the scripture does not support it.

So, this is not so. The Most High gave strict instructions as to who entered the ark including animals. It may be conjectured that animals might also have been genetically altered. The strict instructions by the Most High would have thwarted this profanity.

It is written:

Peter 2:5 if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others.

Genesis 7:1 The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.

So, we see that God saved only Noah and his family but destroyed ONLY all the ungodly people. The most High was specifically clear by saying: “You and your family” and “because I have found you righteous in this generation”. The declaration was inclusive of all the persons entering the ark.

A more vivid parallel could be envisioned in the intercession of Abraham to the Most High in Lot’s behalf before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra – a kind of similitude:

Gen: 18: 32 - 33

32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

33 And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.


We can now see that the Most High may not destroy a place forever if there are 10 righteous people living there. As a result, it has to be inferred that all the eight people who entered the ark were direct descendants of Adam in this instance.

Else why destroy the world with the main objective of restarting and at the same time spoiling it again with Nephilims inside the ark? This defeats the entire purpose.

It should also be noted that the Nephilims had supernatural strengths and powers due specifically to their half-divine nature. How they may have survived the deluge, I do not know, another discourse altogether. All we know is that the scriptures say that they existed after.
