Matthew 24:37-39 For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
These observations serve to drive home this closing thought: that Jesus Christ has guaranteed the victory of His Gospel despite the darkness and despite what men may say. Would it be that God would use us in these last days leading up to His Son's return to tell as many people as possible about how Jesus can deliver them from the darkness of this fallen world and their fallen human condition.
1. Many able commentators such as Merrill Unger, R.A Torrey and Charles Ryrie believe these beings to be angelic creatures. Other able scholars such as Keil, C.I Scofield and Scroggie view the "sons of God" to be Apostate Sethites. My own position is a combination of these two views, since I see the Biblical evidence leading slightly in both directions.
