Question: There is so much interest and teaching now-days on the fallen angels mating with daughters of men. Does the bible really say that? I have tried to swallow it, as it would answer some other questions I have. But, something within me says no, not a truth! Angels are created spirits beings from God. How can a spirit have sexual organs, that only comes from being born in the flesh? If angels can have them, does God have them? I am not trying to be gross or morbid, but really,,, it all makes no sense. It is all kind of sick to me, and I think it is a false teaching from Satan himself to deceive men. If the fallen Angels can have sex, can Satan??? If God didn’t create them that way, then they would of had to create sex organs themselves after the fall! The devil cannot create, he only copies God by deception! If the word says: Mat 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. If it says this, then man teaches they married the daughters of men, isn’t that contrary to scripture??? Thanks, this have really been bothering me.

Answer: Suez, great question. The Bible does say there were fallen angels and they had sexual relations with the daughters of men, but specifically the daughters of Adam. The method of operation for Satan and his fallen angels was to pollute the blood line that Christ would come through.
Satan and all of the angels have spiritual bodies, that is correct. Spiritual bodies while they do not get sick or die like the flesh, they have a similar make-up to our bodies. If you will recall in Lots time the angels came to eat with him and his family (Genesis 19:1-4). The Israelites in the wilderness ate Manna which is angels food (Psalms 78:24-25). So both flesh and spiritual bodies can metabolize food, meaning their body structure including their organs are the same as ours. Most importantly, God created man in His image, so yes they have male parts.
The angels create nothing themselves you are correct, God is the creator, period. You are also correct, Satan is the great imitator and he will soon claim to be Christ.
Concerning the scripture you provided, the fallen angels did not marry in Heaven, but on the earth in the days of Noah. There is no contradiction. Here is an edited snippet from “As in the Days of Noah and the End Times Flood of Lies”.
1 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,”
The word “men” used in verse one and two has the “article” in the ancient Hebrew language meaning specifically “the man Adam,” (Appendix 14 I) not “mankind”. We are talking about Adam’s offspring multiplying on the face of the earth.
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.”
The “sons of God” are in fact the angels as Job 2:1 will document. Specifically, “the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation,” (Jude 1:6). These angels left Heaven and came to earth to intermix with the offspring of Adam, becoming “fallen angels”. The fallen angels did this in an attempt to destroy the blood line of Adam as this is the blood line that Christ would come through. This was the strategy of Satan since the Garden of Eden.
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.”
What days? The days of Noah. Why were there giants which is to say Nephilim in the earth? Because, instead of being born of woman the fallen angels left Heaven and came to earth to impregnate the women of Adam’s genealogy in an attempt to pollute the bloodline that Christ would come through which failed.”
Suez, I would highly recommend you read our study, “The Garden of Eden: The Origins of Satan’s Seed”. You mentioned you have heard a lot about fallen angel teaching. Make sure you can always document in the scriptures what you are told, that is extremely important.
Question: Could you help me to understand The Second Book Of Esdras in the Apocrypha 7th Chapter? Pastor Arnold and Pastor Dennis spoke of it but never taught anything on it.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Dorothy, thank you for the concern. 2 Esdras 7 covers several topics and opens describing Heaven and the path to it, explaining how narrow that path to Heaven really is. It also covers a few other topics including the end times. At 70 verses it is a bit long to cover completely in this format. If you have a specific question you are more than welcome to re-submit for our next edition. I highly recommend you read the chapter if you have not already and pray for wisdom and understanding from our Father before doing so. Thanks Dorothy.
Question: How and when do the two witness show up and what will they be doing when they get here? Where will they be? What will they be doing? Will they be helping us by their ministry? I know they will be here right before Satan. But not sure when exactly.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Melissa, thank you for the question. I do not believe the Bible says the Two Witnesses arrive before Satan. Let me explain. In Daniel 9:26-27 we are told the “prince of the covenant” confirms a covenant with many for one week. That prince is Satan who comes in peaceably as Daniel 11:21-23 documents. Further, Daniel just documented for us that Satan is here for the entire Tribulation. We know that final week is the Tribulation which was originally seven years, but was shortened down to five months by Christ (Matthew 24:22). So the entire Tribulation is now five months, the same one week (documentation on five months in additional reading below).
This covenant is essentially Satan stepping foot on earth to negotiate power from world leaders. To put on a great display of supernatural acts as Revelation 13:13-14 document. We are told in Revelation 13:5 Satan the Dragon is allowed to continue for 42 months which is equal to 3.5 years on the original Tribulation timeline. The keyword here is continue. Satan was on earth before the middle of the Tribulation or midst of the week if you prefer. At this point Satan will have absolute power and this is the moment he completely heals the deadly wound as Revelation 13:3-5 documents. Satan does not have absolute control of the world until the middle of the Tribulation. If we keep reading Revelation 13:6-7 we see he blasphemies God. Why? Because Satan is claiming to be God (absolute) and at this point Satan makes war with the Saints as they will appear to be the trouble makers for Satan’s Beast Government.
Now look at our time elements. We have two scriptures that document Satan is here for the entire Tribulation, originally seven years shortened to five months, Satan is here for all of it.
Revelation 11:3-13 documents what will happen during the time of the Two Witnesses. It also gives us their allotted time which is 1260 days (note: a solar month and a lunar month vary slightly). So the approximate time of the Two Witnesses is equal to 3.5 years (42 months) or 2.5 months on a shortened Tribulation timeline. That is only half of the original Tribulation time and only half of the time allotted for Satan who was given the entire Tribulation.
We also know the Two Witnesses die essentially at the very end of the Tribulation, documenting the Two Witnesses do not show up until the midst of the week, the middle of the Tribulation.
They will appear at the middle of the Tribulation (midst of the week), right when Satan takes control of the entire world when he heals the deadly wound. As Revelation 13:6-7 documented, this is when Satan makes war with the Saints. How fitting for the Two Witnesses to show up at this time as they also have supernatural abilities as Revelation 11:5-6 documents.
To answer your question where will they be? Revelation 11:3-13 documents the Two Witnesses will be in Jerusalem prophesying against Satan and his Beast Government and I would expect the Saints to be standing right with them.

Question: This prophecy Rev 22:19 is that for all the books or just the one particular book? For example, I like to call the Holy Bible the gospel is that wrong?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: James, great questions. Revelation 22:19 would definitely apply to the entire Bible. There are many examples of the scriptures being changed intentionally. We document this in our article, “Why We Use the KJV Bible”.
Anyone who modifies the Bible with the intent to deceive is going to pay a heavy price as documented in the scripture you provided.
I think it is outstanding that you care enough about our Father to ask if it is okay to call the Bible the Gospel. You are on the right track James. You can definitely call the Bible, the Gospel. The word “Gospel” (2098 in your Strong’s Concordance) means “a good message” and the Bible definitely is.
Turn your Bible to,
13 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”
That is your documentation. The Bible is the Word of God and our Salvation through Christ, it is the Word of Truth and in closing it is our Gospel Amour for these end times.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
