Question: Is there any hope for the offspring of the fallen angels (Genesis 6: 1-4)? Would the fact that these offspring had human mothers not give them the right to share in the redemption accomplished by our Lord and in the restitution processes of the Millennial Age?

Answer: Genesis 6: 1-4:

1: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them.”

2: “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

3: “And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”

4: “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, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

Approximately 1,000 years after Adam’s creation and 655 years preceding the flood some of the angels to whom was committed the supervision of mankind prior to the flood, probably at the instigation of Satan and in violation of the divine arrangement for them, materialized and married human wives. The children of this union produced a race of giants, the Nephilim. Though physically and mentally strong, they were morally perverted. Because they were born contrary to the divine will they had no right to existence.

The blessing upon Adam and his family will come through Jesus, as its Purchaser, who gave Himself instead of Adam and all of his unborn offspring, thus laying down a ransom, a corresponding price, for him and all who were in him at the time of his transgression and condemnation. This distinction shows that the offspring of the fallen angels were not of Adamic stock and are not covered by the ransom.
