Learn What This Means: Giants and Angels

For if God did not spare sinning angels, but thrust them down into Tartarus, and delivered them into chains of darkness, being reserved to judgment.

Second Peter 2:4

Who are these sinning angels that Peter is talking about? Tartarus sounds like something from Greek mythology. It is actually the abyss where the Titans are chained in Greek mythology. Peter is telling us that there were angels that sinned and are chained in Tartarus as well. The Modern King James Version uses the Greek word “Tartarus” in their translation instead of translating it to “hell” as is done in other versions. The answer is found in Genesis chapter six.

Gen 6:1 And it happened that, when humankind began to multiply on the face of the ground, daughters were born to them.
Gen 6:2 Then the sons of God saw the daughters of humankind, that they were beautiful. And they took for themselves wives from all that they chose.
Gen 6:3 And Yahweh said, “My Spirit shall not abide with humankind forever in that he is also flesh. And his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were upon the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God went into the daughters of humankind, and they bore children to them.
Gen 6:5 And Yahweh saw that the evil of humankind was great upon the earth, and every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was always only evil.

Jude alludes to these sinning angels.

Jud 1:6 And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—

This is the source of evil spirits and demons that torment mankind today. They cause men to worship trees, animals and the heavenly bodies, plus afflict their bodies and minds. They are the spirits from the unions of humans and angels. Their flesh was destroyed in Noah’s flood and they don’t want to stay naked.

Luk 8:26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee.
Luk 8:27 When Jesus had stepped out on land, there met him a man from the city who had demons. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he had not lived in a house but among the tombs.
Luk 8:28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him and said with a loud voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me.”
Luk 8:29 For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many a time it had seized him. He was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon into the desert.)
Luk 8:30 Jesus then asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion,” for many demons had entered him.
Luk 8:31
👉And they begged him not to command them to depart into the abyss.👈
Luk 8:32 Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and they begged him to let them enter these. So he gave them permission.
Luk 8:33 Then the demons came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and drowned.

Augustine was the first to change the narrative of angels mating with humans in the fifth century. He claimed Genesis six was about the children of Seth marrying the children of Cain. Mainline denominations have distanced themselves from these truths, and the bones of the giants have been removed from the historical record. Tertullian tells us these bones were around in the fourth century. Ante Nicane Fathers volume III.

“There are the carcases of the giants of old time; it will be obvious enough that they are not absolutely decayed, for their bony frames are still extant. We have already spoken of this elsewhere. (De Anim. c. li.)”
