This will be easier to understand if you have first read the page on ANGELS. If you haven't, I suggest you click the ANGELS link in the column on the left side of this page. After reading it, you can return to this page by clicking the link "ABOUT SONS OF GOD".

The bible makes a clear distinction between the Sons of God and the other spirit beings often used as angels. Study the verses below slowly. There's much information in them. I will reproduce the scriptures in BOLD print; and comment on them in italicized print.

(Hebrews 1: 4-9)

" Being made so much better than 
the angels, as he hath by 
inheritance obtained a more 
excellent name than they."

Previous verses show that the above statement is referring to Jesus Christ, the most loyal, most righteous, most accomplished, and therefore the most powerful Son of God.

"For unto which of the angels said 
he at any time, Thou art my Son, 
this day have I begotten thee? 

And again, I will be to 
him a Father, and he shall 
be to me a Son?"

The answer to this question is NONE. God has never called any angel a SON. This statement makes a great distinction between the two. "Son", is the more excellent name referred to in the first verse cited above. It is the name the angels don't have.

"And again, when he bringeth in 
the first begotten into the world, 
he saith, And let all the angels 
of God worship him."

The worship of angels by mankind is strictly forbidden in the Bible. Yet, even the angels are told to worship a Son of God. The Sons of God and angels are separated by a distance more vast than that existing between mankind and angels. Sons of God are not angels.

"And of the angels he saith, 
Who maketh his angels spirits, 
and his ministers a flame of fire."

Yes, the angels are powerful. They are a higher form of life than mankind. They are spirit-beings.

"But unto the Son he saith, 
Thy throne, O God, is for 
ever and ever: a sceptre 
of righteousness is the 
sceptre of thy kingdom."

But the Son is called God. He has a throne which no angel ever has; and, the Son rules the Kingdom of God.

"Thou hast loved righteousness, 
and hated iniquity; therefore 
God, even thy God, hath anointed 
thee with the oil of gladness 
above thy fellows."

Notice these simple words: "Kingdom of God". Although they are not in the particular verses cited above, they are referred to here. And, that phrase is simply strewn throughout the Bible.

Does it refer to a kingdom of angels that God rules over? Does God preside over a heavenly post office, where he constantly gives directions to a host of spirit messengers?

Note that the overlying context of the above verses is continually making a reference to the position of the Son of God. 

A secondary point is made that angels are not ever considered to be on the same level of existence as a Son. With those things in mind, the last verse cited once again focuses on the Son (Jesus Christ) of God, and says God (the Father) has anointed him with the oil of gladness above all his "fellows." 

 That is, all his fellow God brethren. This is what Christ's throne currently rules over. This IS the Kingdom of God, of which other lesser spirit beings are merely messengers (angels). 

This is the Kingdom, in which, mankind will one day take part. It is not a Kingdom of angel beings, it is a Kingdom of God Beings.

One must admit that these verses clearly make a distinction between a SON of God and an ANGEL of God.

With that in mind, to whom do you think these verses are referring?

Genesis 6: 1-4

"And it came to pass, when 
men began to multiply on 
the face of the earth, and 
daughters were born unto them,

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

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.

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."

Within the realm of the Mighty Ones (Elohim), the Sons of God are far, far above any other life form made of spirit (energy). They have free moral agency. They have all the rights and privileges of God. 

However, they can be rebellious at times. They can do things that are not altogether right (unrighteousness).

Yet, it cannot be called sin, for a God-being cannot sin. This is because sin is defined by law, and God is lawgiver. Whatever they do cannot legally be called sin because of WHO they are. It's that simple.

A human being can do the same act as a Son of God, and not being God, to him it IS sin!

To kill is a sin for mankind. "Thou shalt not kill". - the sixth commandment: (Exodus 20:13)

The God being that became Jesus Christ thousands of years later, once spoke these words in Deuteronomy 32:39:

"See now that I, even I, am he, 
and there is no god with me: 
I kill, and I make alive; I wound, 
and I heal: neither is there any 
that can deliver out of my hand."

Kill? Would a God being do something that man is forbidden to do in the very ten commandments? Most of us need a paradigm shift in our thinking, and beliefs when it comes to the nature of God. Read this:

(Isaiah 45:7)

" I form the light, and create darkness:
I make peace, and create evil: 
I the LORD do all these things." 

What about this:

"Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, 
and the people not be afraid? shall 
there be evil in a city, and the LORD 
hath not done it?" 
(Amos 3:6)

There exists nothing in the universe that is there apart from the will of God. All that is, is a result of the existence of the First Cause ... the Original Energy, Original Being, the Original Spirit, the Original Life. God.

Simply put, God is responsible for EVERYTHING!

Furthermore, He knows it. That is why God Himself in the person of Jesus Christ gave the ultimate sacrifice of his very own life to forgive the sins of a lesser being that was NOT God, so that that being could one day become God by being born into the very Family of God.

That's the purpose of this life. It's to make mistakes here. To learn here. To screw-up here, before we take on the very likeness of God as a God being within his family!

His current Sons and Daughters have caused enough trouble in the past. They have had to be punished in the past. They didn't have the advantage of going through "school" in the physical as we have (I think) ....but, maybe they did .... I don't really know. 

Some of them are now DEAD, and are also in need of a resurrection like mankind. Yes, a God being can die. Jesus did. That is how all of us got saved from death ourselves!

Chameleons have power over their color. Caterpillars have power to "morph" into a butterfly.

Elohim have the power to "morph" into the physical. And when they do, their total being is physical. They also have the power to "morph" back into the spiritual.

It's a process, a transition that we cannot yet understand. But, if they are killed before they begin that process, they have died in the physical. They are dead! And, in order to live again they need the assistance of another God being. They need to be resurrected to the physical, and then "changed" back.

Back to Genesis chapter 6:1-14

"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

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

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.

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."

The beings talked about here, that mated with human females, were just what the verses say they were; Sons of God.

They were not angels, they were the physically manifested Sons of God. Remember, the bible makes a clear distinction between the Sons of God, and angels. If it meant angels, that is what it would have recorded.

No, these were none other than the Sons of God.

This was not adultery, nor fornication. There doesn't seem to actually be much wrong with this act. These "daughters of mankind" were married to them. They are called their "wives" by these very scriptures.

These marriages produced remarkable offspring, "men of renown", the "mighty men of old", even "giants."

Half man - half God, these were the men of legends and myths spoken about in nearly all cultures from the Romans and Greeks to the Aztecs of South America.

Hercules, Thor, Goliath, Og and many others. Some were female: Athena, Cybele, Diana and Chicomecoatl.

So familiar were the people of the first century, with these REAL, ancient gods, that because of the power given to God's apostles, they mistook Barnabas and Paul for Jupiter and Mercury !

"And when the people saw what Paul 
had done, they lifted up their voices, 
saying in the speech of Lycaonia, 
The gods are come down to us 
in the likeness of men.

And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; 
and Paul, Mercurius, because he 
was the chief speaker."

(Acts 14: 11-12)

During a council meeting and trial at God's throne in heaven, these Sons of God were judged and sentenced for their wrong actions in ruling over the nations that had been assigned to them. They were not cited in any way for choosing human females as brides.

The problem was this: 

Instead of helping mankind, they were cited for making unjust judgments, having respect of persons (discriminating), failing to defend the poor and fatherless. At times when they should have intervened to save the poor and needy from the wicked, they did nothing. In short, they were cited for UNRIGHTEOUS RULING.

The sentence: They would eventually die in the physical. And, that is exactly what happened. They are still dead to this day.

Like Adam, they were sentenced to live out a physical life, die, and be in need of a Savior. They too needed to learn a lesson. Jesus' act of personal sacrifice not only saved every being in the universe who was found to be deserving of death, it also exalted Him above all in power and authority. All, that is, except for the One who resurrected Jesus Himself.....God the Father .....the Original Life-giver.

Let's step into that meeting and see what the Bible has recorded for us. It's found in Psalm 82:

"God standeth in the congregation of 
the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

How long will ye judge unjustly, and 
accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

Defend the poor and fatherless: do 
justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy: rid them 
out of the hand of the wicked.

They know not, neither will they 
understand; they walk on in darkness: 
all the foundations of the earth are 
out of course.

I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you 
are children of the most High.

But ye shall die like men, and fall like 
one of the princes.

Arise, O God, judge the earth: for 
thou shalt inherit all nations."

Read the above verses slowly, see if you can tell what is going on.

A couple points: The word "Selah" simply means there is a pause at this point. Verse seven says "Ye shall die like men". The word translated as "men" here is Adam. It means to die just like Adam. They were sentenced just as Adam was ... "you shall surely die."

The whole Psalm is about removing authority from the many Sons of God, and giving it to the One Son of God. This One Son has to be Jesus Christ, because He now has all power and authority.

"And Jesus came and spake unto 
them, saying, All power is given 
unto me in heaven and in earth." 
(Matthew 28: 18)

" Arise, O God, judge the earth: 
for thou shalt inherit all nations." 
(Psalm 82:8)

This has been a small view into the reality of the Family of God. The very reason mankind exists is to be born into this Family of Elohim after a coming resurrection. This is your potential. 

There are a relatively small number who understand now, and are putting forth the effort to develop spiritually enough to be of assistance to God once he has given them the free gift of eternal life. 

Most of them will be resurrected physically to be clothed with immortality shortly afterwards by having their physical bodies changed to spirit bodies at Christ's return.  

I Thessalonians 4:16

"For the Lord himself shall descend 
from heaven with a shout, with the voice 
of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"

An even smaller number, who have matured spiritually even further in this life,  will be given a spirit body at physical death thereby  their consciousness will not be interrupted at all... never!

John 11:26

And whosoever liveth
 [possesses life as being born from above] 
and believeth in me 
shall never die. 

Believest thou this?

However, the vast majority of mankind is not responding to God at all in this life, and will have their opportunity in a great general resurrection called The Great White Throne Judgment a thousand years after Christ's return:

Revelation 20:5

"But the rest of the dead lived not 
again until the thousand years were finished. "

In short, of those  who respond now some will be born from above in a resurrection at Christ's return and others will be born from above at death in this life, when the Silver Cord is broken.

However, the majority of mankind has never understood these things. Many have never even heard of Jesus Christ. From those who practice Voo Doo to those who are atheists. 

Their training will come in a great general resurrection back to the physical a thousand years later, after Jesus Christ and those in the first resurrection have ruled this planet for a millennium. 

They will be given another lifetime to learn the way of life that brings stability, happiness, abundance and joy. They will learn the truth of God the Father's way of life for the first time. 

Ezekiel 37: 4-14

"The hand of the LORD was upon me, 
and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, 
and set me down in the midst of the 
valley which was full of bones,

And caused me to pass by them round 
about: and, behold, there were very many 
in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

And he said unto me, Son of man, can 
these bones live? And I answered, O 
Lord GOD, thou knowest.

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon
these bones, and say unto them, 
O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; 
Behold, I will cause breath to enter into 
you, and ye shall live:

And I will lay sinews upon you, and will 
bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, 
and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and 
ye shall know that I am the LORD.

So I prophesied as I was commanded: 
and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and 
behold a shaking, and the bones came together, 
bone to his bone.

And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the 
flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered 
them above: but there was no breath in them.

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind,
 prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, 

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, 
O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

So I prophesied as he commanded me, 
and the breath came into them, and they lived, 
and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Then he said unto me, Son of man, 
these bones are the whole house of Israel: 
behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and 
our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

Therefore prophesy and say unto them, 
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, 
I will open your graves, and cause you to come 
up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

And ye shall know that I am the LORD, 
when I have opened your graves, 
O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, 
and I shall place you in your own land: then shall 
ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, 
and performed it, saith the LORD."

This will include ALL of mankind that has ever lived and was not born from above at death,  or born from above in the resurrection at Christ's return.

Revelation 20: 11-13

"And I saw a great white throne, 
and him that sat on it, from whose 
face the earth and the heaven fled away; 
and there was found no place for them.

And I saw the dead, small and great, 
stand before God; and the books were opened: 
and another book was opened, which is 
the book of life: and the dead were judged 
out of those things which were written in 
the books, according to their works.

And the sea gave up the dead which 
were in it; and death and hell delivered 
up the dead which were in them: and they 
were judged every man according to their works."
