So, evangelism continued for 120 years in the antediluvian civilization before the flood came and destroyed the earth after the last opportunity for the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, in common and efficacious grace, was extended. The grace policy of God never executes judgment on mankind until every grace opportunity has been given to believe. From the time of the angelic infiltration and the genetic attack on true humanity, to the flood, there were 120 years of gospel preaching. In 120 years, half-human, half-demonic people would corrupt the entire human race. By the grace of God, the true humanity of Christ would be born as a descendant of Shem, one of the eight survivors of the flood. Jesus Christ controls history and it was necessary to wipe out the evil, but first, evil had to have an opportunity to repent. The trouble with many Christians is that they do not know that the most powerful weapon, the most enduring weapon in human history is the Gospel. The power of God unto salvation is the Gospel, and not a pleasing personality, not a dog and pony show, not a church filled with gimmicks and games. ROM 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”1CO 1:18For the word [or the doctrine concerning] the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. We need to communicate the Gospel to evil people, they have a right to hear truth so that they can accept it or reject it. As 1PE 3:11 says, And let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. Our responsibility is to make the Gospel clear even to those influenced by evil. Our responsibility is to make the issue clear, and not to try and force people to make a decision for Christ.
GEN 6:3says, Then Jehovah [God the Father] said, “My Spirit [Holy Spirit] will not always plead the cause of God in man's soul forever, for in his going astray, he is flesh [mortal]. Therefore, his days will be one hundred and twenty years.” In verse 4, the antediluvian super-race is mentioned. GEN 6:4The Nephilim [the fallen ones or the fallen angels who followed Satan] were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of the gods [like Zeus, Neptune, Pluto] came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. The phrase The Nephilim is Ha nephalim referring to the fallen ones, the half-human half-demon creatures. Notice that there are three categories of creatures mentioned. Ha adam is true humanity, GEN 6:1Now it came about, when men [ha adam] began to multiply on the face of the land. Then, we have beni ha elohim (verses 2,4) who are angels with bodies. Then, the ha nephalim are mentioned, these are the progeny of the first two combined, i.e., half-human, half-angelic creatures. If you have a body and you are in a certain genus and you copulate with someone else who has a body, and one is male and one is female, there is every possibility that there will be a creature coming from the womb of the female. The trouble with most individuals is that they think of angels with a halo around their head, or as spirits without bodies. However, when you talk about spirits without bodies, you're talking about demons as they are now, after the flood. But, here we are talking about the antediluvian civilization before the flood and angelic creatures did have bodies, they were super creatures biologically. As we have noted, it was a totally different civilization than what we have today, just as there will be a totally different civilization in the Millennium. It is clearly delineated in the Bible, written by men who were inspired by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, that these angels had sex! We know from GEN 6:4 that, The Nephilim [fallen ones] were on the earth in those days [they had bodies and they actually operated on the earth]. And also afterward, when the sons of the gods [the fallen angels like Zeus and Apollos] came in to the daughters of men. The Bible states that, the sons of the gods came in to the daughters of men. The verb came in to is the kal future of bo which is used for sexual relationships; the word bo means to have sex.
