Genesis 19:1-16

Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot
was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he
arose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward
the ground... so they turned in to him and entered his house.
Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and
they ate...

(Then the men of the city) pressed hard against the man Lot
(who was holding the door of his house closed against them)
and came near to break down the door. But the men (angels)
reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with
them, and shut the door.

And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house
with blindness, both small and great, so that they became
weary trying to find the door...

(The next day, while Lot lingered) the men (angels) took
hold of his hand... and brought him out and set him outside
the city.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

There were several comments on angels; it is an intense topic!
For clarification, Jesus says in Matthew 22 that the "angels
in heaven" do not marry; this of course can not be disputed.
But these beings, called "sons of God" in Genesis 6 were not
in heaven, rather, they had been cast out and committed their
acts of sin on earth.

Some would say that the sons of God refers to the sons of
Seth, or that they were righteous men of God marrying women
who served other gods. This goes against the Word which says
that the "wickedness of man was great in the earth" (see
Genesis 6:5), so much so that God destroyed every living
thing except for those that were preserved on the ark.

These relationships were acts of rebellion and sin by both
parties; neither were righteous. Remember, God was very angry
with all of mankind except Noah and his family. Furthermore,
why would the union of these two peoples produce giants?

Some wrote to say that angels are spirits and can not have
physical relationships with humans; see the verses below that
show definite physical relationships described in the Bible.

As always, we all can pray that the Holy Spirit will lead us
into truth; if we seek, we will find! Amen!

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

After fishing for walleye all day and not getting so much as
a bite, the fisherman gave up. On the way home he stopped at
a fish market and asked the proprietor to throw him six of
the biggest fish he had.

"Throw them? Why?" asked the proprietor.

"Because I'm going to catch them. I may be a lousy fisherman,
but I'm not a liar."

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Who wrestled with Jacob while he was on his way to
meet Esau?

A. most people say, an angel


Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until
the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail
against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket
of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him.

And He said, "Let Me go, for the day breaks." But he said,
"I will not let you go unless you bless me!"

Genesis 32:24-26

This incident is clearly described as a physical interaction,
involving a physical injury and "holding on" to one another.
Jacob calls this being "a Man" and later says that he saw the
face of God. Since the Bible says that no man has seen God
and lived we know that he did not actually see the face of
God. Most scholars believe that Jacob wrestled with an angel.
Read the whole account in Genesis 32.
