‘The sentence is by the decree of the watchers, the decision by the word of the holy ones, to the end that the living may know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom He will and sets over it the lowliest of men.’ (Daniel 4:17)
Note that no matter what even the ‘watchers’ decide for men, in the ‘end’ the Most High (God) has the final Word.
The verse “above” probably shows the “good watches” (still loyal to God) whilst the one below (still from the Bible) mentions probably the “bad watchers” (who went against God’s decrees):
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men which were of the age (Hebrew = ‘mê·‘ō·w·lām’; translated in error as ‘old’ here or ‘for ever’ say in 1 Chronicles 29:10 – note that it is exactly the ‘same’ Hebrew word ‘mê·‘ō·w·lām’ (transliterated) occurring in both 1 Chronicles 29:10 and Genesis 6:4), men of renown.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for I am sorry that I have made them.
(Genesis 6:1 – 7)
Who are the ‘watchers’? That’s a mysterious story…
The verse “above” probably shows the “bad watches” (in the Bible) whilst the one below (is not a verse – since it is from a ‘non-canonized’ ancient Book of Enoch – not included in the Bible!) mentions probably the “bad watchers” (who went against God’s decrees):
This is NOT doctrine… Here’s a “well-guessed speculation”:
Book of Enoch.
The dating of this section of 1 Enoch is around 2nd-1st Century BCE. This book is based on one interpretation of the sons of God passage in Genesis 6, according to which angels married with human females, giving rise to a race of hybrids known as the Nephilim. The term irin is primarily applied to disobedient Watchers who numbered a total of 200, and of whom their leaders are named, but equally Aramaic iri (“watcher” singular) is also applied to the obedient archangels who chain them, such as Raphael (1 Enoch 22:6).
In the Book of Enoch, the Watchers (Aramaic. עִירִין, iyrin), are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans. They soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, defect en masse to illicitly instruct humanity and procreate among them. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity. Samyaza and his associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery, and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once. Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. The Watchers are bound “in the valleys of the Earth” until Judgment Day. (Jude verse 6 says that these fallen angels are kept “in everlasting chains under darkness” until Judgement Day.)
1. These I believe were/are the ‘gods of this age’ who are/have deceived the whole world across the cultures… these are the “stories” of the “gods” (some may have been changed to make them look good when they are not) which is found in “religions” across the “cultures” of the “world”… I believe these stories are “not true” for the “fallen sons of God” must have “changed” these stories for them to look “good” when they are really “not” and have deceived men “greatly”… these were probably also the “demons” (spirits? etc) which “talked to me” for many months when I became “oppressed” by them (spiritual attack) after I fell into extreme sin of a “whore-monger” and heard “voices” (psychologists have erred greatly in diagnosing since they do not acknowledge the ‘spirit world existence’ hypothesis).
2. Only the ‘Son of God’ (singular – Lord Jesus Christ – God coming in that ‘divine’ likeness) having an absolute likeness as the ‘Son of Man’ too (coming in the likeness of man too) in order to ‘undo’ the evils done by ‘paying’ for the ‘sin of the whole world’ (all of it) on His Cross. Indeed, He saves ‘all’ life by destroying ‘evil’ willingly (by man repenting to Him) and by converting them through punishments (disobedient men together with the fallen sons of God – all of them). The choice of repentance (as far as I know) was NOT given to these ‘fallen ones’ but that they will be punished with fire since I believe that the foreknowledge of God knew that these won’t repent ‘willingly’… The spirit of lawlessness is already at work, luring and deceiving men into being bound by ‘chains of various lusts’… These ‘fallen ones’ bind men with the ‘chains of lust’ which binds them too… Only “He” can free us “all”… Mercy, O Lord, belongs to thee alone… As the prophet echoes, “O God, in Wrath, remember Mercy!”
