No, it just says the nephelim were o Earth in those days. And we do not actually know who the sons of God and hte daughters of men were. One could
imagine any number of hings, ranging from something like a feudal house "The house of Gorman, etc etc", or perhaps men and women, being all children
of Adam and Eve, were not allowed to have sex, and the Nephelim were there, somehow enabling reproduction, or perhaps the sons of God were one lineage
of Adam at what with the Daughters of man, and their union fabricated some awesome union of culture and knowledge, and in turn, better people.
Point is we just don't know.
But we do know that Sex does not happen in Heaven. We also know that we won't have human parts on heaven. Because Heaven and Earth are two psychically
distinct entities. Our souls either sleep or go to heaven after death ( I know not either yet), and our bodies remain here on Earth. We know that both
of these "realms" are passing, to be destroyed and made renewed. We know that we will have new bodies, with our spirits, as the old flesh dies. We
know that these new humans, brother of the New Adam that is Christ, shall enjoy eternity with him. Because the ascended Christ clearly was a man, it's
safe to assume yes, we will have these human parts in this new life. But we have not gotten there yet. And there is no reason to suspect angels would
have human parts. All descriptions of angels give clues to the fact that they are not physical creatures, but something else. some parts say they are
LIKE, not ARE, the heads of a man, a lion, etc etc, other parts describe 6 winged creatures (personally I suspect Satan was one of these types of
angels, and his sin was before God, and that's why these angels cover their faces. Because they are in the thrown of God, and heaven is stained with
the sin of Satan, thus how can they be allowed to see it?
We also know Christ as "sin who knew no sin", which is important. If being a man means being sin, it makes even more sense humans and human parts are
not in heaven; that sex does not exist beyond the Earthly men and women who consummate their relationships.
Most importantly Christ never had Sex. Christ never took a wife. Christ never had children. These are things God says are good, yet Christ, he who
becomes man restored, never did them. If we are to be like Christ after we rise, it makes pretty clear sense that we will not be having sex, taking
spouses, and having children. For the old world and old heaven will ave passed, and the new world and new heaven would be here.
Looking at all this, it seems practically certain that sex is not in heaven. Sex on Earth is for married people in order to express the unity of their
flesh and spirit, and give birth to new humans (literally an allegory of the long gone unity of God to Man, and the creation of life in that unity)
There seems no reason to think that sex is in heaven, or even capable by angels, and in fact, evidence suggests that this is simply not possible.
Light from Light cannot have sex.
Now maybe this is a bit off topic and all, but I think it is important for establishing who this Magog fellow is, and the fact that he probably is not
some allegory for Russia.
