Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Scripture that talks about angels, giants, and women in the same verse certainly enters into dangerous territory in our day and age.

There clearly seems to be a relationship between these terms if you examine them in scripture (see trivia question below). After reading the verses in Genesis 6, one gets the clear impression that this activity between demons and women was terribly displeasing to God.

This idea is prevalent in our society.

God Bless You!

--DAILY BIBLE VERSE:

And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature.

There we saw giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."

Numbers 13:32-33

Moses sent spies to determine the Israelite's chances of victory in entering the Promised Land. The above verses are the report of the men who had gone with Caleb to spy out the land.

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Why did Paul say women should have a "symbol of authority" over their heads?

A. because of the angels


For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:10-11

This small phrase, "because of the angels," is easy to miss but certainly has serious significance. Paul must be referring to the verses in Genesis 6 where the sons of God saw the daughters of men and had giants by them.
