Who were the sons of God?

"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterwards –when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of great renown".
Throughout the centuries, there have been questions concerning certain accounts found in the Bible that have been the reason for diverse interpretations. There are many authors across history that have tried to give satisfactory explanations to questions such as – Who were the sons of God? mentioned in Genesis 6:2-4. Thanks to our investigations we have found the following information that will bring you light concerning a few details that are not very well clarified in the biblical text, specifically where this is found, but with a process of correlating the dates and pieces of information through various books of the Bible, one can arrive to an understanding of the details and prominent facts
"…The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose." Genesis 6:2.
Please, accompany me in the presentation of the facts that we have found. I would like to make you aware that all man can investigate in connection to the spiritual realm, specially if the fact at issue is not expressly detailed in the Bible, will always be prone to certain amount of speculation. Here we will strive to provide you with the most current and up to date archaeological findings, as well as innumerable historical traditions. In the end, the Bible is that which will serve us as the guideline or reference for inspecting the strength and fidelity of the historical data and non-biblical traditions.
Ceremonies of Ancient Civilizations.
Every ancient civilization has had something in common: Mythological gods and pagan ceremonies. For example, note that we find the following in every ancient civilization:
1. Sexual perversion. 2. Occult practices.
3. Demonic activities 4. Human sacrifices.
Our Bible is full of facts concerning the Chosen People of Israel so as to avoid getting wrapped up in this type of pagan practices. Zephaniah 1:4
"I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all who live in Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal, the names of the pagan and the idolatrous priests – those who bow down on the roofs to worship the starry host, those who vow down and sear by the lord and who swear by Molech…"
This type of practice was so common, that when Moses went to receive the Ten Commandments, by the time he had returned the Israelites had already built a pagan god.
These perversions opened the doors to satanic manifestations in the supernatural realm. Besides that, archeology demonstrates that these civilizations were "supposedly" controlled by beings that today we call "MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES". These creatures appear to be described as half animal, half human beings. Many of these creatures (demigods) were described as giants with supernatural abilities and powers that are specifically described as the result of the union of "the daughters of men" and these "gods".
By means of this information, we see ourselves compelled to formulate the following question:
Were these creatures simply mythological creations or were they really beings that existed?
Mythology: marvelous narration of beings of a divine or historical character.
We believe that it is pertinent to make this question because you should know that the accounts in connection with these "mythological" creatures are not an isolated fact, on the contrary, they follow a consistent model through every single the ancient human culture. We must make then a relation of the forms that these beings had in common in all the ancient societies:
1. SATYR – Man – Goat
2. ENATAUR – Man – Horse
3. MAN SNAKE
b) SYRIA – BABYLON
1. MAN – BIRD
3. ISHTAR – DRAGON
2. CEBEK – Man- Crocodile
3. SNAKE – WOMAN
5. ANUBIS – Man-Jackal
1. WINGED SERPENT
3) TWO-HEADED SERPENT
1) THE DRAGON
As you can see, it is obvious that common incidents must have happened to all these societies, which by the way are some of the most ancient known to modern man, so that all, even though being isolated from each other, as much because of geographical factors, as well as historical time periods, every single one, without exception, adored and worshiped these "mythological beings".
Have These Supernatural Beings Interfered Somehow in the Life of the Planet?
We believe that this is a exceedingly interesting and fascinating question. The facts that I will present will show you the guidelines.
In the precise instant in which man disobeyed God, man turned over his wishes and power over this world to Satan. Genesis 1:28
"God blessed them and said to them (Adan and Eve), "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air"
The world is given to man and later compare its contrast with Luke 4:5, "The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world."
Evidently, the Devil is now the one that possesses the dominion. The objective of Satan is to destroy and pervert the Eternal Plan of Salvation that God has for humanity.
The Bible clearly identifies Satan as the Dragon, and as the serpent. (See Genesis and Revelation). Satan is the old serpent and the dragon that caused Adam to sin in the Garden. Satan, who presented himself to Eve in the form of a serpent, tricked Adam. It is possible that Satan had possessed the body of the Serpent.
Luke 11:24. "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, I will return to the house I left."
Therefore, we can say that the principal objective of Satan is the "contamination of the life of man". (See Genesis 6:l, 4, 8).
Now the topic is becoming significantly more and more interesting! In Genesis 6 we find some startling declarations:
"When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose." Genesis 6:1
I have in my possession various other translations, which adopt this same translation "sons of God". Logically, if they were sons of God, they would have had to be created. Nevertheless, they were not men! Note that they chose between all the women, and they took some as wives. All the other references in the Old Testament to the "sons of God" were references to "ANGELIC BEINGS", including Satan himself, and referring to them as being created by god before Adam and Eve.
JOB 1:6 One day the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them.  The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it." Also see Daniel 3:25; and Job 38:7.
Now note something very interesting: each time there are references made to angelic being in the Bible the designation is given concerning the gender and the sex. They always mention them as angels – masculine – never feminine!
In the Bible there are 291 references to the apparition of angels. In all every single one of them, they were MASCULINE!
This easily explains why they themselves, by being MALES, found themselves attracted to the "daughters of the men". IMPOSSIBLE? I know that this may sound a little strange and even insolent to many people. Nevertheless, accompany me to Jude 1:6 and 7 to see what the Bible itself says: the Bible, which is my faithful fountain of strength:
"And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home – these He has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. In a sililar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire."
