Do Angels Marry?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi L____,

Thank you for your question concerning angels marrying “the sons of men.” Of course there is nothing in scripture which states that spirit beings married physical women. Christ actually taught that angels “neither marry nor are given in marriage”.

Mat 22:29  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
Mat 22:30  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
Mar 12:25  For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angel s which are in heaven.

God has always had a chosen seed. We are informed of that in the judgment God placed on the serpent, on Adam and on Eve in the Garden of Eden. Being “the seed of the serpent” or the “seed of the woman” had nothing at all to do with physical descent. It had and it has everything to do with obeying God.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Christ made it very clear that the Devil’s seed is a matter of believing the Devil’s doctrine and doing the Devil’s work. It never has been a matter of the Devil or his angels having physical sex with physical women.

Joh 8:41  Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [ even] God.
Joh 8:42  Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
Joh 8:43  Why do ye not understand my speech? [ even] because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

That is not what “The Sons of God looked on the daughters of men” is all about. The “sons of God” were those God had chosen before the flood to be His physical nation on earth.

Hos 11:1  When Israel [ was] a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

They were not to mix with the heathen nations around them, just as Israel was told not to mix with the nations around them.

Ezr 9:12  Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave [ it] for an inheritance to your children for ever.
Num 25:1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
Num 25:2  And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
Num 25:3  And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

That is the sons of God going in unto the daughters of men. Israel is God’s firstborn son, and Seth’s children were God’s people before the flood.

Hos 11:1  When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

That is why we have just Seth and Cain’s genealogy. Cain’s lineage is in Gen 4 and Seth’s is in Gen 5. One is the seed of the serpent, and the other is the seed of the woman. Seth’s children had all intermarried with Cain’s daughters by Noah’s day. That is why we are told that “Noah was perfect in his generations” immediately after we are informed that the sons of God had gone in unto the children of men. Giantism comes from Adamic genetics. Angels do not have physical genetics. It was “after that” that the sons of God went in unto the children of men” not ‘before that’. Seth’s son’s, who were God’s sons, “took them wives of all which they chose” instead of being “perfect in their generations.”

Gen 6:1  And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2  That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3  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.
Gen 6:4  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.
Gen 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [ was] great in the earth, and [ that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [ was] only evil continually.
Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Gen 6:7  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Gen 6:8  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:9  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Noah’s family alone had not intermarried with the daughters of men, as Genesis five demonstrates. This whole story, of course, is but a physical shadow and type of how few are pure in their spiritual generations today. “The eighth man”, Noah, is a type of the “new man… the few chosen.”

2Pe 2:5  And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

I hope this is of some help to you. If God is working with your friend, then he will be edified by these scriptures on this subject, but if God is blinding your friend, then these verses will serve only to harden his heart. That is God’s call.

Isa 28:9  Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
Isa 66:2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
Eze 14:9  And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
Eze 14:10  And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;

Your brother in Christ,
