The Genesis 5 Genealogy — Foretells Rebellion, Rescue & Wrath

Hebrew English
Adam Man
Seth Appointed
Enoch Mortal & Miserable
Kenan Sorrow
Mahalalel The Blessed God
Jared Shall Come Down
Enoch Teaching
Methuselah His Death Shall Bring
Lamech The Despairing
Noah Relief, Rest, Comfort

The process is 1) Man Rebels, 2) God prepares and announces His Wrath 3) God Rescues His people ; 4) God’s Wrath Falls

All This Means is:

Man’s sin appoints him to be mortal, miserable [and to live in] sorrow. The Blessed God shall come down teaching [God’s truth].His death shall bring the despairing rest and comfort!

God’s flood negates The Nephilim

The Flood Negates The Nephilim

The Nephilim Never Quite Go Away

God’s Response To Rebellion = Rescue & Wrath

The Ark Is An Allegory for The Way God Work in Our Lives

 God’s Flood Negates the Nephilim

The Flood negates the Nephilim, who are produced from the “serpent seed” of Gen 3:15 from the unholy commingling between the disobedient angels (demons) and human women.

Gen 6:11 Now the earth was corrupt (destroyed by destroyers, ravaged and going to ruin) in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence (malicious, violent wrong-doing).

Gen 6:12 And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted (been genealogically compromised) their way (and ruined their manner of existence) on the earth.

So the fact that The Flood destroys all flesh/people indicates which of the following:

  1. Satan’s deception and corruption has dire consequences for us
  2. We are responsible for allowing Satanic evil to infiltrate our lives
  3. We each have a duty to discern and resist what Satan is doing (Jas 4:7, Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
  4. It doesn’t matter because the Ark story is just a fable.

Sons of God + daughters of men = THE Godless, No-Good Nephilim

Gen 6: 1-2 & 4 – 1When man (common mortal men) began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters (maidens) were born to them, 2the sons of God (angelic beings directly created by God) saw that the daughters of men were attractive/beautiful. And they took (bought, captured, procured) as their wives (women for childbearing) any they chose.  4The Nephilimb (one who fells others, as a bully or merciless tyrant) were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them.  These were the mighty men (warriors of outstanding strength and abilities) who were of old (genetically forever or permanently transformed, and who could perpetuate their kind/breed), the men of renown (famous legends).

Nephilim are distinct from the descendants of cain & Seth

We know the Nephiim were not descendants of Cain who matted with Sethite women because …

  1. Both Cain’s and Seth’s lines end at the Flood, so they both must have been tainted. (Disembodied spirits need hosts, so The Flood drowned all tainted & potential current human hosts.)
  2. Saying the Nephilim were descendants of Cain’s line who only found Sethite daughters attractive says, Cain’s descendants’ daughters were ugly, which is refuted by Deut 21:11, which says to the Israelites, “if you notice among the [Canaanite] captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife. (This applies to people like Rehab from Jericho.)
  3. Angels is ággelos which designates a heavenly, celestial being; whereas Cain’s and Seth’s descendants obviously were human, sons of Adam, whereas Adam was a son (direct creation) of God – as are the angels.

Angels made mischief to Mate with Maidens of men

Jude 6 – and 2 Cor 5:2 use the term oikéktérion which designates an authorized habitation, “of the body as the dwelling-place of the spirit.”

2 Cor 5: 1-2 1Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is dismantled we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2For in this tent (tabernacle, fig’ = the human body) we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,

Jude 6: And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—

Stay within their own position of authority = that state in which one is begotten of God in the beginning. (So they left their creative purpose.)

left/abandoned their proper dwelling = found a way to leave behind, abandoned

Israel annihilated The Nephilim

Get 6:4 4The Nephilimb were on the earth in those days, and also afterward. – which may indicate that after The Flood other fallen angels engaged in this practice and are included in the punishment mentioned in Jude 6.

The Nephilim and their descendants were like the mythological demigods who were half-demonic and half-human hybrids – like Hercules.  Perhaps the mythology is based on Biblical reality.[bctt tweet=”God used Moses, Joshua and The Israelites to purge the Promised Land and the world of the Nephilim-giants. – Israel’s Judges dealt with them, up through Samuel’s time.  – David then was assigned the task of cleansing the land of the Satanic spawn, and David’s 30 or so, mighty men die a great job!” username=”LibertyCF3″]

Israel annihilated Nephilim Giants throughout the Canaanite Conquest

God arrested the apostate angels who fathered the no good Nephilim

God arrested the apostate angels who spawned the Nephilim, and He is holding them in protective custody!

2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell, delivering them in chains to be held in gloomy darkness until their judgmentt;

Jude 6: And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—

And God will arrest Satan too!

Rev 20: 1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key to the Abyss, holding in his hand a great chain.

Rev 20:2 He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

Does revelation record the RETURN OF THE Demons who birthed the Nephilim?

In Rev 9:1 God lets demons out of the abyss (ab’-us-sos).

Rev 9: 1- 11 1And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.a 2He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. 3Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. 6And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them. 7In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, 8their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth; 9they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. 10They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. 11They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.b

Noah’s gene pool was not polluted

Gen 6: 9 – 10 9These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless (without defect) in his generation (genealogical registration). Noah walked with God.

10And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth” – who apparently also had pure human genes, as did their wives with which to restart the human race.

Which do we believe to be true of Noah? He was …

  1. a sinner
  2. was obedient in building the Ark
  3. had imputed righteousness (Gen 15:6, Abe believed and was accredited with righteousness)
  4. demonstrated faith in God


Gen 6:8 But Noah found favor (grace) in the eyes of the LORD.

This favor was prophesied (predestined) in Gen 5: 28-29. (Eph 1:5&11, Rom. 8:29, 1 Cor 2:7).

28When Lamech had lived 182 years, he fathered a son 29and called his name Noah, saying,Out of the ground that the LORD has cursed, this one shall bring us reliefd from our work and from the painful toil of our hands.”

Would we say this is a reference to salvation by grace, through faith in God? Which is characterized by …

  1. Man responding to the obey the promptings of God/Holy Spirit
  2. Alleviation of working to earn our salvation.
  3. Repenting and avoiding future sin, which like getting on the Ark keeps one separate from that for which the impending judgement will strike down others.


Under Favor and GRACE, like Noah we are EMPOWERED by God to fulfill tasks that seem humanly impossible.

Noah’s assignment was to build and ark which was Godly work that would bring salvation and a fresh start to humankind.

This work was to take place in a world that was characterized by how in Gen 6: 12 – we see…

So the community in which Noah built the Ark was…

  1. d) highly supportive of his efforts
  2. e) extremely skeptical and mocked his work
  3. f) repentant – as the Ark was a sign of impending judgement


Noah did obey, but …In Gen. 6: 3 when the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not abide ina man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years,” …   The 120 years indicates:

To Answer we must compare Gen 6:10 & Gen 11:10


Our mission is to be used of God to obey as Noah did, because obedience provides the visible – Ark-like-evidence – of our salvation and our awareness that judgement certainly is pending.

2 Pet 2: 5 says “if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, [who served as] a herald (proclaimer/ communicator) of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;


We must cooperate with God through obedience to realize our rescue. Faith w/o works is dead/useless Jas 2:20 &26) had Noah disobeyed, he’d be dead literally!

The Bible warns us that disobedience can result in irrecoverable loss.  Rom 11:22 Take notice, therefore, of the kindness and severity of God: severity to those who fell, but kindness to you, if you continue in His kindness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.

Gen 6:14 – 16 – The ark was made of gopher (cypress) wood.d  And was more like a floating chest with 3 floors and stalls on levels 1 & 2 for the animals, with living quarters on the top floor.  15This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits,e its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits. 16Make a rooff for the ark, and finish it to a cubit above, and set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks.

A cubit is estimated to be approximately 18 inches.  So 300 cubits = 450 feet – but scholars vary by 70-90 feet, with an average of 510 – 515.  For instance, Barnes reckons the cubit at 1.8 feet, and the length to be about 540, the breadth 90, and the height 54 feet.

So the Ark is about 1 1/2 football fields long, and about 25 feet wider than a football field.  It probably was the equivalent of a 3 1/2 to 4 story high building.

It is a huge, flat-bottomed 3-floor barge without sail or engine.


The Ark had the same storage capacity of about 522 railroad cars, which would hold about 122,250 sheep.  The average size animal is somewhere between the size of a sheep and a cat, depending upon whose information you rely upon.  A few animals are larger than a sheep, but most are smaller.

Experts estimate there are approximately 18,000 species of animals, if you pair them, the ark only would be occupied with 36,000 animals of its 122,250 capacity.

If God only brings juveniles that are not full grown, the ark only would even have more capacity for food and supplies to last a year especially as much of which would be stored on top of each animals cage.  Many experts believe God put the animals into hibernation, making caring for them even easier – as they eat less etc.…

A million insect species would require only 12 of the 340 trailers, maybe. This would leave room for five trains of 99 cars each for food, Noah’s family and ‘range’ for the animals. However, insects are not included in the meaning of behemah orremes in Genesis 6:19-20, so Noah probably would not have taken them on board as passengers anyway.


The Ark was covered in pitch, both inside and out which is a metaphor for being covered in atonement that works the Born Again experience.  The John 3:16 Born Again experience results from the inner working of Calvary’s blood covering the heart, mind and soul, which transforms our outer behavior.


There only was one Door on the Ark, which = one way of Salvation, John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Like Noah, we are atoned for, but must build and get into an ark and remain there for a very long time, 377 days and 376 dark nights in Noah’s case.

The ark is not human powered and thus is at the mercy of God in the midst of the storm

The rescue began before judgement fell – as the Genealogy of Genesis 5 reveals, as Enoch is raptured, and the series culminates with Methuselah whose death will signal judgement shall come, and God lengthens his days, patiently waiting for the world to repent – not being willing for any to perish.


Like Noah, we are atoned for, but we must obey and build and get into an ark and remain there for a very long time, 377 days and 376 dark nights in Noah’s case.

The ark was not human powered and thus is at the mercy of God in the midst of the storm.  Like Abraham, Noah did not know where he would end up.  He just trusted that in God’s hands, he will end up where God wants him.


Like Noah, whose mission was to labor on the earth, and persevere through the impending judgment of the Flood, we too are called as perhaps “Last Days Christians” to faithfully obey and be used of God.

Our obedience give us favor with God through whom He can communicate to Rebellious

By doing so, the souls God uses us to reach may be ours and our closet loved ones.
