Sons of God. Who Are They?

0

When you hear the expression son of God, who or what does one almost always think of? Jesus [the]Christ. Yet, there is much more to this expression than meets the eye and more to it than the watered down “keep-you-in-the-dark” explanation given by the religious system called by man, Christianity.

The expression son of God simply means created by God; God Himself is the Father of or Creator of. 

These sons of God are not human and had no birth. They were created by God.

There are many sons of God mentioned in the book called The Bible. The man Adam is called a son of God at Luke 3:38:

The son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

I have come across many people who outright refuse to believe that angels are sons of God. Why is that? Because it has been inculcated in them that there is only one son of God and he is Jesus. Well, I have just produced Luke 3:38 that mentions Adam – who was created by God – was a son of God.

Yet, these very same persons fail to consider the question, “What form was the one who became known as Jesus in heaven BEFORE he was sent to the earth? He was not a man in heaven, so what was he? An angel. One of the many sons of God.

We are told at Col 1:15 and Rev 3:14 that this son of God was the first of all of God’s creations. That he was the first son of God, would make him the Chief or Eldest son of God. The expression Archangel (never Archangels) is used at 1 Thess 4:16 and Jude 9. Jude 9 gives this Archangel’s name as Michael. Revelation 12:7 mentions Michael and his angels going into battle against The Dragon and his angels. Thus, the first created angel who was sent out of heaven to the earth to become a man known as Jesus was Michael. 

The one who became Satan the Devil is a son of God. God created him a good angel, but he chose to become a bad or disobedient one. We even read at Job 1:6 how the sons of God were standing before God. Who are these sons of God? That they are standing before God shows that they are in heaven. Thus, these are angels. And, that Satan joined them in standing before God, shows that he too is an angel.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

These sons of God – angels – are described as an army or a vast multitude in heaven stationed around God. We read this at 1 Kings 22:19:

Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing around him on his right and on his left.

Many of these sons of God – angels – admired the beauty of the one who came from the man’s rib – the woman. These angels were actually able to marry (join) themselves to a woman. This marrying was not as we view marriage today between a man and a woman. No, this marriage was a woman and an angel. This was no physical joining together. This was not angels taking on the form of humans in order to have sexual relations with them. Obviously, these powerful sons of God had the ability to fertilize the female ovary to cause pregnancy in the same manner in which Mary conceived without human contact.

The women who became pregnant back then would not have known that it was an angelic intervention that caused their pregnancy.

That it was the sons of God who did the choosing (not the women choosing them), shows that the women were not aware of angelic intervention.

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.

That angels (sons of God) exist, is evidence of life outside of the planet earth. Most of us seem to think of life on other planets or in other galaxies. That very well may be as God has not revealed to anyone that he has or has not created other life forms elsewhere. And, that is a fact.

Yet, I believe that God and angels are invisible to us because they exist in – for lack of a better word – another dimension(s) invisible to us. And, that they are able to move in and out of them just as easy as a human crossing the street. These dimensions are their normal means of transport without the use of machines. 

Our puny and extremely limited intellect cannot comprehend it. Since most cannot, they dismiss it.

Yet, there exist life forms unseen to us and they are creations of God. They are called sons of God. Many of these sons of God have taken a stand against the one who created them. Their leader is called the Great Dragon, who is also a son of God.

In the distant future, these sons of God will do battle with the sons of God loyal to their Creator. (Rev 12:7-9)

They will defy their elder Brother – who has the birthright of a first born son (only begotten son) – over him being given a kingdom.

That angels can do battle, shows that they can destroy one another and be destroyed.

We know that this is true because, in the end, Satan and his angels will be destroyed. (Rev 20:10)

Romans 8:19 speaks of these sons of God again but in the context of the finishing of God’s creation. Recall that God rested in the seventh day. The seventh epoch or period of time in which we are living in now. Of this seventh unfinished day, God has not yet said as he as said of the first six creative time periods: 

And the evening and the morning were the first day.And the evening and the morning were the first day. And the evening and the morning were the second day. And the evening and the morning were the third day. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The Last Day – the seventh day – is unfinished because mankind has not been restored to his Creator. All of mankind is flawed, deficient, imperfect unholy, and unworthy to be in the presence of the one who is perfect and holy. All of mankind must be prepared – as a bride, a virgin – to be in God’s presence and enter into His kingdom when it comes down out of heaven and envelopes the earth. That preparation comes at the hand of the Christ. It will be by means of the resurrection from the dead of all of mankind born since Adam – to include Adam – into Christ’s future 1000 year kingdom (paradise) over the earth. That is the purpose of his 1000 year kingdom: To prepare and restore all of mankind to their Creator. The same relationship Adam had with God. Adam did not have a mediator, he communicated with his Creator directly without one. Mankind today requires a mediator – Christ – because none of us were as Adam was in the beginning when God created him: perfect, innocent like a child, and had no knowledge of sin. Adam had no knowledge of sin until he ate of the fruit Eve gave him.

The manifestation of the sons of God at Romans 8:19 is the finishing, perfecting, and restoring of mankind to God by Christ. He will finish God’s seventh day. That finishing of mankind will make us sons of God, just like Adam was.

We are told that God created man just a little lower than angels. (Hebrews 2:6-7)

If angels are sons of God, then that which was created just a little lower than angels will one day be sons of God.

Yet, ahead of us will be a new heavens and a new earth. (2 Peter 3:13) That is, a new base of rule over mankind which will come out of the heavens and a new mankind (earth), a new creation: sons of God. (Gal 6:15)

Don’t be afraid to think and reason outside of the confines set for you by religious organizations and religious systems.

Listen to the one The Most High God told us to listen to and no other. (Luke 9:35)

Something to think about people.
