Q. I have got to ask this question about angels mating with humans. The Bible says in heaven we are neither married or given in marriage. [Mark 12:25] There is neither male or female in heaven [Galatians 3:28]
That being known; Why would the angels have the ability to reproduce with anything, let alone humans? It seems contradictory, to have angels mating with anything let alone producing Nephilims to run about.
A. You’re correct about Mark 12:25, but in Galatians 3:28 Paul was not saying there is neither male nor female in Heaven. He was saying that once we are in Christ God no longer thinks of us as being Jewish or Gentile, slave or free, male or female, but as all being one in Christ. He wasn’t referring to our heavenly forms but to His perception of us on Earth.
Also, Jude 1:6 tells us the angels who sinned abandoned their origins. That means they no longer kept the form given to angels in Heaven and instead took on the form of humans on Earth. This is something angels have the ability to do, but only under God’s direction for the purpose of ministering to us (Hebrews 1:14). Having human form gave them the ability to mate with human women.
The Bible is very clear on this. Genesis 6:2 says, “The sons of God (angels) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.” Then Genesis 6:4 tells us, ” The Nephilim were on the Earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them.”
