When the “sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6:1–4 came to Earth, were they disobedient from the start or were they lured into sin by Satan?
We engage in some speculation this week as we discuss the entity called Shemihazah by the Jews of Jesus’ day, the leader of the rebellious Watchers who sinned by commingling with human women (2 Pt. 2:4; Jude 6–7). We believe that entity has been known by many names throughout history, including Kronos by the Greeks and Saturn by the Romans.
But John foresaw a day when Saturn is released from the abyss, described in Revelation 9:1–11, because we think Saturn/Shemihazah is “the Destroyer,” Abaddon or Apollyon. The question is this: When Saturn is let out of the abyss, will he follow Satan in his war against God?
