REFIRED

It is obvious that most or all commentators agree that the sons of God were fallen angels. There is not a single reference in Scripture that backs up the statement that the sons of God were fallen angels. The idea is merely a general consensus and conjecture.

Note, that Gen. 6:4 does say that they were "SONS of God".
However, in the book of Hebrews (1:5) it says: "For unto the angels said He (God) at any time, 'Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee? And again, I will be unto Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son?'"
The clear statement here is that God has never referred to any angel as a son in any sense.
Christ, the Son, is a part of the Godhead, but angels are not whether good or fallen.
Christ far surpasses all angels, in so much, that He is called both Son and God (Heb. 1:5,8). Angels have great dignity, but nowhere near the status of Christ who is exalted above all in being seated at the right hand of the Majesty on high. He is the Son, who has superiority over all angels (Heb. 1:5-14).
The sons of God of Gen. 6:4 were a distinct created order which remain unknown and a mystery to us today.
And, it appears to me, that the ones which are also referred to in Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7 were yet a different order of sons of God from the Gen. 6:4 lot (just as Adam was called the son of God (Luke 3:38), and as we, who are born again and washed in the Blood, are the sons of God (John 1:12). It says that that the sons of God, not fallen angels, nor the fallen sons of God of Gen. 6:4, came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan was among them (sounds familiar, doesn't it!).
One final point: that good and bad angels are spirits (Heb. 1:7), and cannot reproduce as human beings can. So these sons of God in Gen. 6:4 cannot possibly be fallen angels.

Sons of God
by: Robert Marshall

It is very difficult to explain Scripture to any one. No man can do it. It is the job of the Holy Spirit.

In Ephesians chapter four God gives us some information about those sons of God who lived in Noah's time. They were just as much a sinner as any one was. Everyone who is written in the Lamb's book of life will be raised to life at the last day.The Bible say's that the saved must hear the Word of God as a part of salvation.

Jesus descended into the lower depths of the earth and led captives into heaven. The bible say's absent from the body present with the lord.In Noah's day there were people who were saved and they were called the sons of God.

In 1st peter chapter 3 god gives us information about those captives. God's timetable is much different than ours. People died a thousand years ago, and their bodies have been in the ground all that time. God can save in many different ways, but we all die the same.

The wages of sin is death. Before we were saved didn't we lust after many things,including women. Didn't we have children out of wedlock. David did with Bathsheba.Even though the child died a week later we know the baby was saved, because David said He can't come to me, but someday i will go where he is. The sons of God in Noah's day were sinners just as we are today. In Psalms chapter 115 verse 18 says the dead go to a place of silence. If the saved are absent from the body and present with the Lord And in Noah's day to a place of silence.

Then Jesus went to that place of silence and preached the Word to the captives and led them out of captivity to heaven. And now those captives are absent from the body and present with the Lord.
