(Gen 6:1-9) 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 [Heb: beautiful]; 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 [Heb: a bully, tyrants] [mutations, as a donkey crossed with a horse results in a mule] 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 [Heb: powerful] which were of old, men of renown. 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. And it repented [Heb: to be sorry] the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 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. But Noah [Heb: rest] found grace [Heb: kindness, favor] in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just [Heb: lawful, righteous] man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Commentary: The phrase "the sons of God" is found 5x (Gen 6:2,4; Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7) in the Old Testament always referring to angels. That same phrase is found 6x (John 1:12; Rom 8:14,19; Php 2:15; 1 John 3:1,2) in the New Testament referring to men. Interesting.

perfect = Heb: entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also integrity, truth: - without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright, whole.


(2 Cor 10:4,5) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal [Gk: fleshly], but mighty through God to the pulling down [Gk: demolition: (fig.) extinction] of strong holds [Gk: meaning to fortify, through the idea of holding safely); a castle (fig.) an argument]; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;




(Mat 13:24-30) Another parable put he forth unto them [the multitude including His disciples], saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man ["the Son of man" v37] which sowed good seed ["the children of the kingdom" v38] in his field ["The field is the world" v38]: But while men slept [were not "vigilant" 1 Pet 5:8], his enemy ["the devil" v39] came and sowed tares ["the children of the wicked one" v38] among the wheat [the good seed], and went his way. But when the blade [stem] was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants [the disciples] of the householder [Gk: the head of a family; master of the house] came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence [where] then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest ["the harvest is the end of the world (aion)" v39] I will say to the reapers ["the reapers are the angels" v39], Gather ye together [Gk: sullego; collect] first the tares, and bind them in bundles [of associations or groups of like-thinking individuals who actively disobey God, like abortionists, feminists, liars, adulterers, and homosexuals in preparation (in advance, i.e., now)] to burn them [the judgment]: but gather [Gk: sunago; assemble] the wheat into my barn [a wooden structure].

Nelsonís Illustrated Bible Dictionary: tares = A poisonous grass resembling wheat, but with smaller seeds. The tares were usually left in the fields until harvest time, and then separated from the wheat during winnowing. Jesus used tares growing with wheat as a parable to illustrate evil in the world.

Tares = Gk: darnel or false grain. [darnel fruit tends black; wheat fruit tends golden white]

(John 4:35) Say not ye [addressed to His disciples], There are yet four months, and then cometh the harvest [is this a quite interesting hidden prophecy of the end-time harvest]? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Commentary: = "his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat" = Tares deceptively appear to be "good for food" (e.g., "when the woman saw that the tree was good for food" Gen 3:6), but tares are in fact something evil and terribly destructive, they are "the children of the wicked one," fallen angels, that Satan, who is the father of lies (John 8:44), deceives us into taking into ourselves. Tares in this parable are something deadly poisonous that we unknowingly but willingly ingest. The intended spiritual meaning is that we are deceived into taking tares (lies) into our selves. Tares are evil thoughts (fallen angels) that, under subterfuge and deception, we willingly allow entrance into our souls through our eye gate and/or through our ear gate.

a. (Mark 4:18,19) And these [seeds] are they which are sown among thorns [fallen angels (demons), sharp, piercing, damaging pain]; such as hear the word [Gk: logos], And the cares [Gk: distractions] of this world, and the deceitfulness [Gk: delusion] of riches, and the lusts [Gk: longing (especially for what is forbidden)] of other things entering in [entering in to what?], choke [Gk: to strangle completely] the word [Gk: logos], and it becometh unfruitful [Gk: barren: without fruit]. [in direct disobedience to the very first command given man by God "Be fruitful, and multiply" Gen 1:28]


(Mat 13:36) Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, "Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field." (Mat 13:37) He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; (Mat 13:38) The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; (Mat 13:39) The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. (Mat 13:40) As therefore the tares are gathered [Gk: sullego; collected] and burned [Gk: consumed wholly] in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world [Gk: aion]. (Mat 13:41) The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather [Gk: sullego; collect] out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity [Gk: wickedness: unrighteousness]; (Mat 13:42) and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Mat 13:43) Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear [Gk: understand], let him hear [Gk: understand].
