Who Are The Sons Of God?

Q. In one of your articles on the Nephilim you said, “The Hebrew phrase translated “sons of God” refers to beings who are direct creations of God.”  I believe you when you say this, I just do not understand your process to get there. I checked Strongs H1121, H1129 & H251 and I would not have came to your conclusion unless I heard it from you as I did.  I would like to study the Word of God as you do, with much prayer and reliance on the Holy Spirit of course.

A. You can’t come to the conclusion that the phrase “sons of God” in Genesis 6 refers to beings who are direct creations of God (angels) simply from analyzing the words.  You come to that conclusion by analyzing the 5 times the phrase appears in the Old Testament.  Three of those times ( Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7) obviously refer to the angelic host.  Since the very same Hebrew words are used in Genesis 6:2, 6:4 it makes sense to conclude that the same beings are being referenced. This is why in addition to reading the Bible literally, we have to consider the context in which each word or phrase appears.
