Repentant Devils, and Bad Ones
There is more detail about the sin of the fallen angels in the Book of Enoch. According to it, they repented, but were not forgiven.
Genesis and Enoch both give this description:
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:4 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 bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.
The Book of Enoch gives more details:
The sin of corrupting mankind
10.4 And further the Lord said to Raphael: “Bind Azazel by his hands and his feet and throw him into the darkness. And split open the desert, which is in Dudael, and throw him there.
** HELL is in the earth, and its entrance is a pit in the desert
10.11 And the Lord said to Michael: “Go, inform Semyaza, and the others with him, who have associated with the women to corrupt themselves with them in all their uncleanness.
10.12 When all their sons kill each other, and when they see the destruction of their loved ones, bind them for seventy generations, under the hills of the earth, until the day of their judgment and of their consummation, until the judgment, which is for all eternity, is accomplished.
** notice they are bound under the hills of the earth
The binding of 70 generations
So, 70 generations from some time point will be the time of consummation.
I have calculated this different ways. It seems like the time is about up, depending on what one determines a generation is, and whether the final battle after the 1000 millennial reign of Christ is also counted.
But, in general, all along there has been some level of evil in the world. We have witnessed an increase of the occult in the past century. How this will all be accomplished should unfold as time passes.
The verdict from God
12.4 “Enoch, scribe of righteousness. Go and inform the Watchers of Heaven, who have left the High Heaven and the Holy Eternal Place, and have corrupted themselves with women, and have done as the sons of men do and have taken wives for themselves, and have become completely corrupt on the earth.
12.5 They will have on Earth, neither peace, nor forgiveness of sin, for they will not rejoice in their sons.
12.6 The slaughter of their beloved ones they will see; and over the destruction of their sons they will lament and petition forever. But they will have neither mercy nor peace.”
13.1 And Enoch went and said to Azazel: “You will not have peace. A severe sentence has come out against you that you should be bound.
13.2 And you will have neither rest nor mercy, nor the granting of any petitions, because of the wrong which you have taught, and because of all the works of blasphemy and wrong and sin which you have shown to the sons of men.”
The “remorse” and shame of the fallen angels- request for forgiveness
13.3 And then I went and spoke to them all together, and they were all afraid; fear and trembling seized them.
13.4 And they asked me to write out for them the record of a petition, so that they might receive forgiveness, and to take a record of their petition up to the Lord in Heaven.
13.5 For they were not able, from then on, to speak, and they did not raise their eyes to Heaven, out of shame for the sins, for which they had been condemned.
13.6 And then I wrote out the record of their petition, and their supplication in regard to their spirits, and the deeds of each one of them, and in regard to what they asked; that they should obtain absolution and forbearance.
13.8 And behold a dream came to me, and visions fell upon me, and I saw a vision of wrath; that I should speak to the sons of Heaven and reprove them.
13.9 And I woke up and went to them, and they were all sitting gathered together as they mourned, in Ubelseyael, which is between Lebanon and Senir, with their faces covered.
** Note that there is no forgiveness of sins without the blood. There was no atonement. There was no attempt to stop the behavior, or “right the wrong.”
They were ashamed and repentant because God was angry, and they were being punished, not because they saw it was wrong, and rejected the sin.
Request for forgiveness denied
14.4 And I wrote out your petition, but in my vision, thus it appeared, that your petition would not be granted to you, for all the days of eternity; and complete judgment has been decreed against you, and you will not have peace.
14.5 And from now on, you will not ascend into Heaven, for all eternity, and it has been decreed that you will be bound on Earth for all the days of eternity.
** Note that they are bound on earth, where humans live.
14.6 And before this, you will have seen the destruction of your beloved sons, and you will not be able to enjoy them, but they will fall before you by the sword.
Why forgiveness was denied
14.7 And your petition will not be granted in respect of them or in respect of yourselves. And while you weep and supplicate you do not speak a single word from the writings which I have written.
16.2 And now to the Watchers, who sent you to petition on their behalf, who were formerly in Heaven:
16.3 “You were in Heaven but its secrets had not yet been revealed to you; and a worthless mystery you knew. This you made known to women, in the hardness of your hearts. And through this mystery the women and the men cause evil to increase on the Earth.”
16.4 Say to them therefore: “You will not have peace.”
So, where is “hell?”
18.11 And I saw a deep chasm of the earth, with pillars of heavenly fire, and I saw among them fiery pillars of Heaven, which were falling, and as regards both height and depth, they were immeasurable.
18.12 And beyond this chasm, I saw a place, and it had neither the sky above it, nor the foundation of earth below it; there was no water on it, and no birds, but it was a desert place.
18.14 And like a spirit questioning me, the Angel said: “This is the place of the end of Heaven and Earth; this is the prison for the Stars of Heaven and the Host of Heaven.
19.1 And Uriel said to me: “The spirits of the Angels who were promiscuous with women will stand here; and they, assuming many forms, made men unclean and will lead men astray so that they sacrifice to demons as gods. And they will stand there until the great judgment day, on which they will be judged, so that an end will be made of them.
Any relation to the “aliens?”
This story, if legitimate, makes me wonder about the “classes” of alien beings we seem to have described today. While I am not an “alien expert,” I read that different alien types can oppose each other.
Satan and the serpentine class appear hateful and non-repentant. Then there is a group of “grays” who the governments befriend, to get alien technology.
I wonder if there are 2 types of fallen angels.
1. rejected and doomed, bad, but less harmful, “repentant,” fallen angels who are attempting to avoid, further, the wrath of God by “helping” mankind. Maybe they think they can avoid their final destruction through humanitarian gestures.
2. fallen angels, harmful, and committed to evil, unconcerned about the wrath of God on themselves and mankind. They work to destroy the world we know.
The idea of repentant devils is a little odd for me.
To collaborate with them is still not in God’s plan for believers, no matter what they have to offer.
They still have a fallen nature, and lead us quickly into the wrong path.
God has provided us with holy angels as guides.
He has also provided us with the Holy Spirit, who is there to comfort us, and give us the wisdom of the Word, which is the wisdom of God.
In the days ahead, I think we will see more of these supposed fallen, but “helpful” angels (aliens) intervening in world events. We will also see the really nasty ones show up as well.
We need to avoid both sets.
Salvation is through Jesus, not creatures from the underworld.
