Bible Study--Genesis 6
by Ella Rose Mast
Now, you are up to the time of Noah's day, and here in this chapter and history takes you back, and then forward and we read:
Vs: 1--And it came to pass, when men (Adamites) began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them.
Vs:2--Then the 'sons of God' saw the daughters of men (Adamites), and that they were --FAIR--, and they took wives of all which they chose.
Here these are not Adamites called 'sons of God'. In places they are called Angels, but remember --it is only by a Divine Specific Act that one can be called 'sons of God' such as what happened to the Adamic race.
Now; Angels are spirits and were created by God and there was some of those Angelic hosts who fell. Now;--"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved unto the judgment of the great day. " (Jude 6) Now; they left their own habitation, or kept not their first estate, and the time of their fall is given as in the days of Noah.
"Which sometimes were disobedient, when once the long suffering of God waited in the days of Noah while the Ark was being prepared."
These fallen Angels had taken bodies as did Lucifer and they were seizing the women in the high Tarim Basin and their offspring were giants. They were normal size as they took bodies but their genes were of their first habitation and their offspring were giants and they even became cannibals there in the High Tarum Basin. These were not 'sons of God'. They were Nephilim--or fallen Angels who kept not their first estate. This was again a tactic put forward by Lucifer to try to stop this kingdom of God in its beginning. (Ap:25 and 23)
A little later on you will see these Nephilim again, for there were others also in the world, besides these in the Tarim Basin, and they would try always to stop the growth of the Kingdom of YAHWEH. They are to be found among the Cainanites, the rephaim and the Hittites and so forth.
Vs: 3--And the Lord said--"My spirit shall not always strive with these men who are now flesh, but their days shall be 120 years."
See how YAHWEH EVEN GAVE THESE Nephelin the chance to change, before he destroyed them.
Vs: 4--There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that when the Nephilim fathered children, or as it is written--"Came in unto daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Now; history does tell us that at one time there were those giants in the earth, and archaeology also confirms this.
Vs: 5--And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was evil continually.
Vs: 6--And it repented the LORD that he made man in the earth, and it grieved him in his heart .
Well, remember that this version of scripture also saw the Jews working on translation. They had no capacity to understand the purpose and plan of YAHWEH. They only knew to try to change doctrines. YAHWEH did not repent--putting his Adamic race in earth to build his kingdom. But no doubt he grieved to see these rebellious Angels now in bodies of flesh, doing as they were in the High Tarim Basin and he decides to:--
Vs: 7--And the LORD said:--I will destroy --or wipe out.-- Who?--these whom I created --from the face of the earth, both man and beast and creeping thing, and fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Vs:8--But Noah found Grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Now;--according to the old books, Noah and his family lived down in Northern India in the great civilization the Aryans built as they first came out of the High Tarim Basin.
Vs: 9--These are the generations of Noah.
Noah was a just man, remember, and perfect in his generation because he walked with YAHWEH (God). He was perfect because he had kept his lineage pure. After all the instruction to the Adamic race was very specific. They were not to mix their seed with another race, and especially, were they warned about this race of Lucifer--Those knowing good and evil.
Vs: 10--and Noah begat three sons--Shem, Ham and Japheth.
The work earth then becomes that word--eret--meaning all that area of the Tarim Basin, was corrupt before God and the earth (in that area) was filled with violence.
Vs: 12--And YAHWEH looked upon the earth (there in the Tarim Basin) and behold it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth (in that area).
Vs: 13--Therefore YAHWEH said to Noah:--"There shall be an end of all flesh in that area, so I will destroy them from off the earth (in that area).
You now can see from this translation that people might get the idea that YAHWEH was going to destroy everyone on earth but Noah and his family. This is because they do not understand the history of this time, or this translation and who was causing the catastrophe or the words of old describing this event, here at the time of Noah. But Noah was given a job to do. YAHWEH sent Noah back to that area with his family to build an ARK of gopher wood, and put rooms in this ark and cover it with pitch so it would float and not leak, for there would be a great lot of water in this area when those 120 years were up.
Now;-- why destroy the animals there in that area also? You are told that everything had been corrupted in that area--the cup of iniquity was full. Therefore the time had come for judgement to be meted out. As we have said the offspring of these fallen angels being giants were eating everything in sight and people also. And remember YAHWEH could have just destroyed the whole thing, but he sent Noah and family back to build the Ark for a great purpose. To show again, not only the difference in these two kingdoms, but to show his deliverance of HIS KINGDOM PEOPLE, always, as well as HIS GRACE for he deals even with those who are evil with Grace.
Thus Noah and his family came to the Tarim Basin and they made the Ark--
Vs: 15--The length of the Ark shall be 300 Cubits, the breadth of it 50 Cubits.
Even the Ark was built in symbolism.
Vs: 16--A window was to be put in the ARK and the door was in the side, and this Ark was 3 stories high..---
Vs: 17--And now YAHWEH was to bring a flood upon this area and all would be destroyed by water..
Vs: 18--But with Thee (Noah) I will establish my covenant, and thou shall come into the Ark with thy sons and thy wife, and thy sons wives.
Vs: 19--And YAHWEH would then bring 2 of every sort into the ARK , of all living things in the area--thus he would not destroy all the animals and fowls and so forth of the creeping things.
Vs:20 --Fowls after kind, cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing ,every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive,
Vs:--21--And take thou unto thee of all the food that is eaten, and you shall gather , and it
shall be for food for you and those with you.
Verse: 22---Thus did Noah; according to all that God told him to do, so did he.
Thus Noah did all that God told him to do, and He and his family went back to the basin and built the Ark over those 120 years and he was a minister to the people as well, altho they did not pay any attention for after all they like Sodom and Gomorrah were ready for judgment.
And when he was ready then the Almighty would bring the animals to the Ark and would load them for Noah and his family.
