Genesis 6

War Against the Darkness 2: Angels, Giants and Conquest (Genesis 6:1-4)

War Against the Darkness 2: Angels, Giants and Conquest (Genesis 6:1-4)

In the second lesson in our series exploring spiritual warfare, we take a look at a passage which has been problematic or at least strange for biblical interpreters - the origin of some unusually large people called the Nephilim in Genesis 6. And they actually show up again in and around the land of Canaan when it’s time for the Conquest of the land. So where did these giant people come from? Why are they targeted in the Conquest of Canaan? And what does all this have to do with war in the heavenly realm?

  1. How do you explain Genesis 6:3 that says the lifetime of man will be 120 years when Noah lived to be 950 and even later Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and others all lived many years more than 120?  It seems that the 120 restriction wasn’t put into effect until the time of Moses.

  2. I believe in 1945 95% of the people believed and called on the name God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I believe in 2018 40% of the people believed and called on the name of God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. What changed? The Lord is the same today, tomorrow, and forever. What changed?

  3. Can you expound on our responsibility to orphans and widows as stated in James 1:27?
