The Nephilim: Satan’s Fallen Angels

nephilimThe Nephilim: Satan’s Fallen Angels[1]

After the Fall of Adam and Eve there was a population explosion on the earth. [2] The war by the Serpent’s “seed and her seed” (Gen. 3:15) was being fought via genetic manipulation of life on earth. They hoped to corrupt the image of God in man so the woman’s seed could not be born.[7]

Their DNA experiments corrupted the peaceful life forms God created, changing them into the violent monsters we see in the fossil record. The earth was ruined in God’s sight. To wipe out all Satan did required a global flood (Gen. 6:11-13; 7:21-23). This is why the corrupt versions of life, that perverted God’s kinds (Gen. 6:19-20), weren’t saved on the ark.

A third of heaven’s angels joined the Dragon’s rebellion convincing mankind to join the rebellion against God (Rev. 12:4). These “the Fallen Ones”[3] are called the “Nephilim” in Genesis 6:4.

(How were Satan’s angels cast out of heaven twice?)

God sent His angelic “sons of God” in response to Satan’s attack.[4] But man was angry God denied them immortality (Gen. 3:22-24) and they came up with a “work around” to gain immortality for their children.[5] They used their beautiful daughters seducing the “sons of God” to take as many wives from among them they chose, to bear immortal children. The supporting role the Nephilim played in seducing the “sons of God” is implied by naming them first in Genesis 6:4.[8] Its wording makes them contemporaries with the “sons of God” and fellow reprobates with them.

The many children born by these two groups of angels became known as “men of renown”. Some were giant in stature, some giant in intellect and abilities. They built the antediluvian megalithic structures found today such as Pumapunku, Gobekli Tepe etc.

By now you may have noticed I do not cite the Book of Enoch for any of these things. The book is not credible. See End Note[10]. Worse, it must have been an antichrist spirit speaking because it denies Jesus Christ came in the flesh (1 John 4:1-3) when it claims Enoch is exclusively “the Son of Man” with whom the righteous will dwell eternally (1Enoch 71:14, 16). Hence, its useless disinformation whose only purpose to to prevent readers learning the truth.

The Nephilim will return disguised as Extraterrestrials with Satan as their Dragon Commander (Rev. 12:7-9). The “ancient alien theory” is the satanically energized strong delusion (2Th. 2:11-12; Rev. 16:13-14) The “flying frog” demons out of their mouths “the BIG LIE” Satan and his angels are extraterrestrials. They will cause the Great Revolt (2Th. 2:3-4) against even the definition of God, opposing it while exalting the hybrid 666 Beast as above “the Elohim extraterrestrial gods” hoping to change times and law of civil society (2Th. 2:4. Dan. 7:8, 25; 8:10-11, 24; 11:36-39). The hybrid Satan-human is “Satan’s seed” (Gen. 3:15) “The Beast”(Rev. 16:13) “the Antichrist” (1Jn. 2:18; 22-23; 4:3. 2Jn. 1:7) whose human name will be “Adonikam” (Rev. 13:18; Ezr. 2:13). On this see: The 666 Riddle solved

Satan craftily spoke through a serpent corrupting Eve from the simplicity of God’s truth beguiling her to eat (2Cor. 11:3) from the tree of knowledge (Gen. 3:1-6). Satan is called a cedar tree (Ezek. 31:8-11), whom the fallen angels followed (Ezek. 31:6). Christ “the ruler of the nations” and His angels will cast them into “the pit” (Ezek. 31:11-14). In Ezekiel 31:3 this “cedar” is called Assyria, his “seed” then would be “the Assyrian” (Mic. 5:5-6; Isa. 14:25-27), the apostate Jewish Christian named Adonikam (King of the North) Satan’s seed (Gen. 3:15).

Bookmark this. When the Extraterrestrials arrive return and learn what happens next. Then it won’t seem like fiction.

The UFO cult called the Raëlians promised extraterrestrials would come, claiming to be the Designers our Creators. Jerusalem would become their base once a Third Temple was built according to their exact specifications, a welcome mat. Embassy for Intergalactic Relations, world leaders gathered there under the watchful eyes of the Elohim Creators.

The Raëlians were deceived. The Fallen Ones (Nephilim) are not Extraterrestrials. They are corrupters of the life God made on earth, and they have evil designs. They send out the “four demons” of the Apocalypse seeking to change times and law—create the crises that changes the paradigm so all follow Satan the Dragon and his “Seed”. The four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

When they arrive Christians will call them demon impostors, Satan’s Nephilim disguised as extraterrestrials. That will incite universal condemnation. In the throes of ecstasy, the New World Order Globalists will hate us: “Deniers!” they will cry, “you stand in the way of progress. Soon we ascend to be immortal, like gods! Yet you cling bitterly to superstition, insulting the Creators!”

Their “new Jerusalem” is “Sodom and Egypt” rebels like that great city Babylon”.

When the Dragon’s UFO fleet arrives Adonikam will embrace “scientific atheism.” The “Elohim” will prove they designed the monsters in the fossil record. Then, Evolutionists worldwide will embrace “intelligent design” they formerly ridiculed. God the stumbling block was removed.

All faith in God throughout the earth will be overthrown, the Great Rebellion against all called God or worshiped as such, then begins (2 Th. 2:3-4).

Moreover, every New Age and Pentecostal prophet (Mt. 7:22-23) whose tongue channels a strange spirit, the “other Jesus” (2Cor. 11:4. 1Tim. 4:1. 1Jn. 4:1. 1 Kings 22:22-23. Mt. 7:22-23), will prophesy praise for the “Creators” bringing in the New Age, the “Kingdom of God”. “Scientific Atheism” became the New Religion of the New World Order of the Beast.

The Powerful Delusion

It will be like the days of Noah. Spiritism unrestrained, those believing God few in number.

The update ends here. I will leave intact the original article as it contains some information not found above.

For those interested in learning what comes next, I tried to entertain putting this exegesis in a fictional format. But I don’t do fiction well, I’m not a writer. Ignore the fictional aspect and take from it what you will:

The Rise of the 666 Beast

 

******************* Old Article Follows *******************

Peter (2Pet. 2:4-5) and Jude (Jude 1:6-7) refer to angelic “sons of God” in Genesis 6:1. Among those who follow their lead, are two main views. Either the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4 are “giants” “men of renown” offspring of human-angel intercourse, or they are the “fallen ones” (Satan’s angels) competing with God’s angels for the hearts and minds of men. These eventually leave their “own habitation” (Gen. 6:2; Jude 1:6). [1]

But the debaters overlook the decisive testimony in Revelation 12:4. There it is said a third of heaven follows the Dragon who cast them down to the earth while he seeks to devour the seed of the woman (Gen. 3:15). Here the Dragon cast his angels down to the earth. This is different than in the End Time when Michael casts the Dragon and his angels out of heaven and they appear on earth (Dan. 12:7-12).

After God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:24) there was a population explosion, conservative estimates put the pre-Flood population in the billions[2].

Cast out of the Garden of Eden Satan’s war against the “woman’s seed” continued raging (Gen. 3:15). He cast his angels down to earth (Rev. 12:4), called the “fallen ones” (Nephilim) in Gen. 6:4. [3] to devour the promised Seed if He should appear. The unrestrained spiritism of the Nephilim was deceiving the entire earth. Against their evil influence God deployed the angelic “sons of God” (Gen. 6:1, 4; Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7) “to instruct the children of men” (Jub. 4:15). [4].

The Nephilim “fallen ones” were winning the battle for hearts and minds. Man was angry God denied them immortality (Gen. 3:22-23).

Denied immortality for themselves they proposed a “work around” God’s prohibition, their daughters would sire children to the “sons of elohim”[6] and these would be immortal. Moreover, they supposed God’s plan could be frustrated if the “woman’s seed” were polluted with the DNA of angels. In effect, defiling the image of God in man with a Frankenstein like “blended image of God and angels”.

5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent 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 He was grieved in His heart.
7 So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” (Gen. 6:5-7 NKJ)

The lineage of the coming Seed must be without angelic DNA blemish (08549 תָּמִים tamiym, Gen. 6:9). Only then Substitutionary Atonement[7] in truly human flesh possible (Jn. 1:14. Heb. 2:14; Rom. 1:3-5. Gal. 4:4. 1Jn. 4:2,3. 2Jn. 1:7). God blames man for the evil “plot” (04284 מַחֲשָׁבָה machashabah) (Gen. 6:5-7). Having dominion (Gen. 1:26, 28) they could have easily rejected Satan’s suggestions. That Satan suggested these plots against God’s Messiah is clear from Revelation 12:4-5 (2Cor. 11:3. 1Tim. 4:1).

The supporting role the Nephilim played in seducing the “sons of God” is implied by naming them first in Genesis 6:4. [8] These paraded their immoral unions before the eyes of the “sons of God” looking down from heaven (Gen. 6:2), the constant porn eventually seduced them to leave their “own habitation” (Jude 1:6) and take as many wives as their inflamed lust required.

They did not join Satan’s rebellion against God, they left their proper habitation lusting for strange flesh (Jude 1:6-7). That is deducible from their being separated upon physical death[9] cast into Tartarus (2Pt. 2:4), which is different than the abyss where “spirits of demons” go (Rev. 16:14. Lk. 8:31. Rev. 9:1-3).

9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect (08549 תָּמִים tamiym) in his generations (01755 דּוֹר dowr). Noah walked with God.
10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Gen. 6:9-10 NKJ)

“Without blemish (Ex. 12:5. Lev. 1:3, 10; 3:1, 6; etc.) in his lineage (Gen. 17:7, 9, 12)”.

The usual Genealogical list format (Gen. 5:1; 10:1; 11:10. Etc.) is not followed. Noah first contrasted to contemporaries, then sons are named (Genesis 6:10). “Generations” (‎בְּדֹֽרֹתָ֑יו ) plural, descended from those without blemish. His morality, a “just” “man who walks with God” (Gen. 6:10) is separately stated.

11 The earth also was corrupt (07843 שָׁחַת shachath) before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt (07843 שָׁחַת shachath); for all flesh had corrupted (07843 שָׁחַת shachath) their way on the earth.
13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy (07843 שָׁחַת shachath) them with the earth. (Gen. 6:11-13 NKJ)

“All flesh” meaning everything on land that breathes (Gen. 7:22-23). All “that moved on the earth…all living things which were on the face of the ground (Gen. 7:22-23). This is emphasized thrice, everything on dry land died.

11 The key term here is the verb šāḥaṯ, which appears first as a Niphal imperfect (“corrupted”—v. 11), then as a Niphal perfect (“it was corrupt”—v. 12), then as a Hiphil perfect (“had corrupted”—v. 12). We might note that v. 13b, read by all the modern versions as “behold, I will destroy them,” is another form of this verb (Hiphil participle with suffix).

To capture this consistency of word choice we may render the above as “gone to ruin was the earth … indeed, it had gone to ruin … all flesh had ruined its way.… I will ruin them.” The choice of the same word to describe both the earth’s condition and the intended action of God must be deliberate. God’s decision is to destroy what is virtually self-destroyed or self-destroying already. This verb is also used in Jer. 18:4 to describe the clay that was “spoiled” in the potter’s hands. The spoiled clay he reworks. The spoiled earth is destroyed.-Hamilton, V. P. (1990). The Book of Genesis, Chapters 1–17 (p. 278). Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.

“So God looked upon the earth…All flesh had corrupted their way on the earth”-Gen. 6:12

God saw everything He made and it was good (Gen. 1:31). Now He looked, and times and law are changed, even animals rage against one another. The Divine order has been overturned (Gen. 1:30), the earth filled with violence. All flesh even animals are ruined to God. Perhaps Nephilim and men drank the blood of their human victims, certainly of their animal prey (Gen. 9:3-6).

This is why the Flood was necessary, to completely destroy what had been destroyed by their own actions.

Those who follow the Septuagint and translate Nephilim as “Giants” speculate angelic DNA survived among the survivors Noah took with him, as giants persist after the flood. The generalization is flawed, Arba the father of Anak (Josh. 15:11) is said to be the greatest “man” (0120 אָדָם ‘adam) among the Anakim (Josh. 14:15) meaning Anak was not Nephilim. The Anakim were giants (Num. 13:33; Deut. 2:10, 20-21; 9:2, but only the exaggeration of cowards linking them to Nephilim supports they were giants also.[9]

The “days of Noah” characterized by unrestrained spiritism and DNA manipulation, will return in the end time:

26 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:
27 “They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. (Lk. 17:26-27 NKJ)

END NOTES:

[1]
The Fourth Lateran Council in 1215 declared the nature of angels “spiritual” and Protestants have defended that definition ever since.

The clear pronouncement of Holy Scripture that the angels are spirits (pneumata; Matt. 8:16; 12:45. Luke 7:21; 8:2; 11:26. Acts 19:12; 23:8. Eph. 6:12. Heb. 1:14), who do not marry (Matt. 22:30), are immortal (Luke 20:35–36) and invisible (Col. 1:16), may be “legion” in a restricted space (Luke 8:30), and like spirits, have no flesh and bones (Luke 24:39).-Bavinck, H., Bolt, J., & Vriend, J. (2004). Reformed Dogmatics: God and Creation (Vol. 2, p. 456). Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic.

However, that hypothesis is a hasty generalization fallacy that confuses “spirits” with “angels” as these are distinguished from each other (Ac. 23:8-9). The lying spirit who fools the prophets (1Kings 22:21-22) is nothing like the angels who ate and drank with Abraham (Gen. 18:1-8) or sat under a tree speaking to Gideon (Judges 6:11-12). Rather than conjure up physical forms to be seen, it appears they have cloaking technology (2Kings 6:17) and appear in our matrix without walking through doors or walls just as Jesus did in his physical resurrection body (John 20:19-20). Jesus eats a fish to contradict any suggestion He is a spirit (Luke 24:36-43).

Angels are always represented as physical and the theory they have God like power to create living bodies contradicts the declaration God alone has that power (Dt. 32:39). Rather, scripture reveals there are portals that can connect earthly and heavenly realms. Jacob saw angels walking through a portal on a ladder through the “gate of heaven” (Gen. 28:12, 17). John went through a similar door to enter heaven (Rev. 4:1). So did the chariots of fire that took Elijah away, a swirling energy vortex (2 Kings 2:11). Christ and His heavenly army will enter our Matrix through an opening in the sky (Rev. 19:11) perhaps similar to when the clouds concealed His departure during his Ascension (Acts. 1:9).

When the “complete” (5046 τέλειος teleios) and “partial” (3313 μέρος meros) (1 Cor. 13:10) touched each other [“kingdom of God came in power (Mk. 9:1)] during the Transfiguration, Moses and Elijah step into our Matrix still physical as Peter confirms by wanting to build tents for them (Mk. 9:4-5). [Satan had tried to prevent the resurrection of Moses (Jude 1:9)]. It is a massive violation of Occam’s razor sola scripturists ignore these scriptures to perpetuate the error proposed by the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215.

“Spirits of demons” implies angelic bodies contain within them an immaterial spirit (Rev. 16:14). Spirits and angels are distinguished from each other (Ac. 23:8-9). The hapax legomen λειτουργικὰ πνεύματα “ministering spirits” in Hebrews 1:14 notwithstanding. This is not a reference to angelic nature, but to their function as minsters of the spirit. If these were immaterial spirits, then God wouldn’t have to make them spirits after creation (Ps. 104:4. Heb. 1:7).

Nothing about New Jerusalem coming down from heaven implies an “immaterial city”, it follows neither would their likely builders be immaterial (Rev. 21:10-27). If one cannot be physical in heaven, why didn’t Paul realize he wasn’t still in his own body while in third heaven? (1 Cor. 12:2, 4). The description of this matrix as a “partial” requires it is less substantial as “the complete”. The “teleios” contains dimensions of revelation of God we lack (1 Cor. 13:8-12). If anything is “immaterial”, it be us ghostly photons consisting in the Infinite Mind of God the Eternal Son held together by His thought (Col. 1:17. Ac. 17:28). As the “Word of God” Jesus makes concrete what Triune YHWH God conceives (2Cor. 4:6. Gen. 1:1).

Let’s not confuse the “spirits of demons” (Rev. 16:14) with angels still having “celestial bodies” (1Cor. 15:40).

Unclean spirits and demons wandering tombs etc. craving corporeality, are the spirits of Nephilim who did not corrupt the image of God in man, but weren’t permitted to reenter the dimension of heaven as the flood waters killed all alive on the earth. Included among these are the evil hybrid offspring of the angels (Gen. 6:4). Desperately craving corporeality, they pathetically roam the wastelands possessing anything they can, insects (2Kings 1:2), animals or men (Lk. 8:30-32).

The Nephilim that defiled the image of God had their spirits imprisoned in the Abyss (Lk. 8:31. Rev. 9:1-3). As for the apostate “sons of God” who took wives, these were segregated from Satan’s angels and imprisoned in Tartarus (2 Pt. 2:4; Jude 1:7). As for the hybrid human-angel spirits of the “men of renown” who couldn’t believe Noah’s preaching God would forgive their “Frankenstein nature”, these were a special case and therefore cast into special “prison” (5438 φυλακή phulake) and Christ made a special trip to preach the gospel to them. These, by their answer of a good conscience to God, became a like figure to the church which is also saved when it believes the Gospel).

The fallen angels who didn’t sin with humans, or get trapped on earth during the Flood, remained with Satan in heaven for Michael to cast out in the End Time (Rev. 12:7-10).

Creation to the flood was about 1656 years Timeline for the Flood-David Wright.

If the growth rate in the pre-Flood world was equal to the growth rate in 2000 (0.012), there could have been about 750 million people at the time of the Flood. However, given the extremely long lifespans prior to the Flood, the growth rate could have been much higher. Increasing the rate by just 0.001 would put the population at close to four billion at the Flood.-Answers In Genesis, What Was the Pre-Flood Population Like? January 6, 2016.

[3]

A literal translation of Nephilim is “fallen ones.” The full implication of the passive adjectival formation (q aṭīl) can best be brought out by something like “those who were made to fall, those who were cast down.”-Hamilton, V. P. (1990). The Book of Genesis, Chapters 1–17 (p. 270). Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.

Heavenly Lady Zion (Revelation 12:1-4. “Jerusalem…Mother of us all” Gal. 4:26) is pregnant with “her Seed” (Genesis 3:15), Satan cast (906 βάλλω ballo) his angels down to the earth trying to prevent the birth of Christ. This is not to be confused with the End Time war in heaven thousands of years later. Then its Michael and NOT Satan who casts them down (Rev. 12:7-9).

[4]
Implied by the context. God’s Spirit strives (01777 דִּין diyn) against man’s inclination to do bad continually (Genesis 6:5. John 16:8). It follows God deployed His angels against Satan’s Nephilim (Dan. 10:13, 20-21; 12:1. Ps. 104:4. Jude 1:7. Rev. 12:7-9). The 135 BC writer of Jubilees deduced something similar regarding the angels:

“For in his days the angels of the Lord descended on the earth, those who are named the Watchers, that they should instruct the children of men, and that they should do judgment and uprightness on the earth.” (Jubilees. 4:15 OTP)

[5]
God blames man for the apostasy of the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:3, 5-7, but the immediate mention of the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4 implies they played a supporting role. Man was angry God denied them immortality (Gen. 3:22-23). They enthusiastically joined Satan’s rebellion, hoping to prevent the advent of the “woman’s Seed” by defiling the image of God in man.[7] They believed God could be defeated (Rev. 12:9; 13:14; 16:13-14; 20:8. 2Cor. 11:3. 1Tim. 4:1). God blames man because he has Dominion (Gen. 1:26, 28) and could have stopped it. Even to this day Satan can do nothing without human collaboration.

[6]
Our LORD did not say angels are sexless in Matthew 22:30, only that the “angels of God in heaven” don’t marry. That regenerated humanity will be like angels “in heaven” requires this is true of obedient angels and does not rule out disobedient angels can choose to be married. Moreover, it is often said angels are always represented as male as though that proves they are sexless. In fact, it proves otherwise, it means they are “male”. Moreover, in Zechariah 5:9 are two female angels:

“Pictured as propelled by the wind currents. As seen already in Ps. 18:11[10]//2 Sam. 22:11 and Ps. 104:3–4 and as reflected throughout the OT (Gen. 8:1; Exod. 15:10), the wind is identified as one of God’s servants. Here the women are propelled along by God’s agents to remove idolatrous wickedness.

Second, these wings not only were filled with wind but they were the wings of a stork. Stork wings are appropriate for the task of these women, since they would be able both to lift such a heavy load as well as to transport it the distance from Yehud to Babylon. The stork’s migratory habit (cf. Jer. 8:7) of moving from south to north in the spring, would match the journey to Babylon, the land of the north. But stork wings were also appropriate for this load called wickedness because the stork was designated an unclean bird in the Torah (Lev. 11:13–19; Deut. 14:18). This connection to uncleanness does not mean that these figures are not being used by Yahweh, since there is possibly a wordplay here between stork (ḥasîḏâ) and pious (ḥāsîḏ). In addition, pious (ḥāsîḏ) and wicked (rešaʿ) are an antonymic lexical pair elsewhere in the OT (1 Sam. 2:9; Ps. 37:28; 97:10), making these winged women figures appropriate candidates for eliminating the woman called wickedness.-Boda, M. J. (2016). The Book of Zechariah. (R. K. Harrison & R. L. Hubbard Jr., Eds.) (pp. 352–353). Grand Rapids, MI; Cambridge, U.K.: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.

Satan corrupted peaceful vegetarian life into the violent carnivores seen in the fossil record to facilitate the End Time “strong delusion” he and his fallen angels created man. That they are the “Elohim Designers” of life on this planet as Satan convinced Claude Vorilhon the founder of the UFO cult Raëlism.

Their documentation will be comprehensive, thoroughly convincing. The earth will respond by discarding everything called god in history as superstition (2 Thess. 2:3-4). The goal is to substitute the Times and Laws upon that are the foundation of law and and society with their new paradigm of the 666 Beast. Click here for more.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect (08549 תָּמִים tamiym) in his generations, and Noah walked with God. (Gen. 6:9 KJV)

Noah is more than a “just man”, he is “perfect 08549 תָּמִים tamiym) in his generations,” the image of God in him has not been blemished with the nonhuman DNA. The lineage of the Messiah the Woman’s Seed “Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (Jn. 1:29. 1Cor. 5:7. Col. 1:20) had to be without blemish (08549 תָּמִים tamiym) or it was unacceptable (Ex. 12:21-28).

[8]

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days (and also after this) when the sons of God were having sexual relations with the daughters of humankind, who gave birth to their children. They were the mighty heroes of old, the famous men. (Gen. 6:4 NET)

In a parenthetical phrase we are told that Nephilim were present during this scenario. But in what capacity? Are they simply contemporaries? Or are the Nephilim the result, the fruit, of the union between the sons of God and the daughters of men? Or are the Nephilim the sons of God and therefore the perpetrators of the crime? Had v. 4 preceded v. 3, the likelihood would have increased that we are to understand the Nephilim as the bastard offspring of this union. But the present order of the verses argues the contrary.-Hamilton, V. P. (1990). The Book of Genesis, Chapters 1–17 (p. 269). Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.

“The Nephilim were on the earth” linking this to events in Genesis 6:2. Their involvement is thus implied. They conspired with man to seduce the “sons of God” with the daughters of men. “And also afterward” when the “sons of God” had intercourse, it was successful. The hybrid human-angel offspring were “men of renown”. While its possible some of these were giants its also possible some were “giants in intellect, ability”. Perhaps the builders of sites such as Pumapunku in Bolivia, or Göbekli Tepe in Turkey etc. if these are antediluvian. The theory high tech extraterrestrials would build with stone, leaving no artifacts of their advanced technology behind, is not plausible.

[9]

And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man.
22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died.
23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. (Gen. 7:21-23 NKJ)

Everything taught today about the Nephilm is predicated upon the hasty generalization fallacy they are “giants” that was first proposed by the cowardly spies who opposed Caleb:

We even saw the Nephilim there– the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim! To ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and we must have seemed the same to them.” (Num. 13:33 CSB)

This is an exaggeration, the claim they were Nephilim arose only because they were losing the argument (Num. 13:31-33). Caleb proved these weren’t Nephilim when he defeated three of these sons of Anak (Josh. 15:14) so easily its receives only brief mention. Noteworthy, yes. Epic, evidently not.

Angels are corporeal (Gen. 18:2-8. Judges 6:11; Heb. 13:2), Revelation 16:14 “spirits of demons” confirms it. Hebrews 1:14 “makes his angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire” (Heb. 1:7) doesn’t contradict, its not speaking about the nature of angels, only their function in God’s economy. Figuratively speaking, they are “swift as the wind” and “able to consume like fire” the wicked. “Ministering spirits”( λειτουργικὰ πνεύματα) appears only once in scripture, a hapax legomen. Angels are God’s ministers to the body of Christ, ministering “spirit to spirit.” The apostles were ministers “of the Spirit” (2Cor. 3:6) serving in the “ministry of the Spirit” (2Cor. 3:8), yet not as ghosts. Neither are these angelic ministers “of the Spirit” ghosts.

The papal Council of the Lateran A.D. 1215 decreed angels are incorporeal, not scripture. Protestants faithfully advance Catholic dogma to this day, why is unknown.

Scripture never implies angels materialize functioning bodies to be seen in our realm (Gen. 18:8. Jdg. 6:11). On the contrary, they traverse the metaverse leaving their “Complete” (5046 τέλειος teleios) to appear in our “Partial” (3313 μέρος meros) (1Cor. 13:10) through portals (Gen. 28:12) without materialization at all. Evidently they are “cloaked with invisibility” until God opens eyes, not materialize bodies (2Kings 6:17).

The theory angels create and dissolve materialized bodies at will is a massive violation of Occam’s razor, the sort of eisegeses the Roman magisterium is famous for. The quaint medieval metaphysics are contradicted by Moses and Elijah who are so physical Peter wanted to build tents for them (Mark 9:1-2, 5) when the portal between realms was open. John went physically into heaven through a door (Rev. 4:1). Paul would have known he was “out of the body” if it were impossible to be physical in Third Heaven (2Cor. 12:2, 4). Jesus sits on the throne in His resurrected human body (Ac. 1:9; 2:33). When our LORD arrives with His Holy Myriads to descend upon the Beast at Armageddon, its through an opening between realms that will be as visible as flashing lightning, and in fact is the “sign of Christ’s coming” (Rev. 19:11-14; Mt. 24:3, 27, 30-31).

The divisions of angelic beings

The angelic “sons of God” who fell went to Tartarus upon physical death (Jude 1:6-7. 2Pet. 2:4). The hybrid children (“men of renown”) of both the Nephilim and “sons of God” became the “spirits in prison”. They disbelieved (544 ἀπειθέω apeitheo) Noah’s preaching God would forgive their “Frankenstein hybrid nature” if they repent. These died and became “spirits in prison”, segregated from human and angelic dead. That’s why Christ made a special trip to these in Hell, they were a special case. Those who answered with a good conscience before God to the preaching in like figure to the church, were rescued from prison and rose with Christ as He ascended (1Pt. 3:18-22; Eph. 4:9-10).

Those Nephilim caught on earth by the Flood waters, who did not defile the image of God in man with the image of angels, God gave special dispensation to wander hopelessly as incorporeal spirits. Desperately craving corporeality, they pathetically roam the wastelands possessing anything they can, insects (2Kings 1:2), animals or men (Lk. 8:30-32).

The fallen angels who didn’t sin with humans, or get trapped on earth during the Flood, remained with Satan in heaven for Michael to cast out in the End Time (Rev. 12:7-10).

These will return disguised as Extraterrestrials with Satan their “Dragon Commander”, claiming to be mankind’s “creators”. The “scientific atheism” they preach is the “strong delusion” the Pompous Antichrist hopes will change “times and law” (Dan. 7:20, 25; Rev. 13:5-8), denying the Godhood of both the Father and the Son (1Jn. 2:18, 22-23). Opposing the historic definition of God while exalting Himself above it (2Th. 2:3-4), claiming his hybrid nature greater than all called God before.

The Bible is never wrong, it says “every living thing” (ASV), thrice repeating for emphasis (Gen. 7:21, 22, 23) all living on the ground (as the Nephilim and “sons of God” were), was slain. The angels were denied re-entry into the dimension of heaven, leaving them to die on the earth as the flood waters rose. Like those spirits of demons trapped in swine, they were forced to descend to their appointed places (Lk. 8:30-33) once their physical habitation died.

Perhaps lacking electro-magnetically charged physical forms to keep them above ground, the soul or spirit is drawn down into the earth by gravity, God directing traffic to their appointed place.

Angels gather the righteous to their people lest they descend (Gen. 25:8; Lk. 16:22).

[10]

21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 Jn. 2:21-22 KJV)

13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. (Jn. 3:13-15 KJV)

14 Then an angel came to me and greeted me and said to me, “You, son of man, who art born in righteousness and upon whom righteousness has dwelt, the righteousness of the Antecedent of Time will not forsake you.”

16 Everyone that will come to exist and walk shall (follow) your path, since righteousness never forsakes you. Together with you shall be their dwelling places; and together with you shall be their portion. They shall not be separated from you forever and ever and ever.”-First Book of Enoch 71:14, 16 Charlesworth, J. H. (1983). The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (Vol. 1, p. 50). New York; London: Yale University Press.

Compare RH Charles’ 1913 mistranslation hiding the claim Enoch is the “Son of Man”:

And he (i.e. the angel) came to me and greeted me with His voice, and said unto me: ‘This is the Son of Man who is born unto righteousness, And righteousness abides over him, And the righteousness of the Head of Days forsakes him not.’ (1 En. 71:14 OTP)

Christians would not have found Enoch’s use of the title “Son of Man” so interesting had they knew he claimed to be the Son of Man only Christ can be.

And all shall walk in his ways since righteousness never forsaketh him: With him will be their dwelling-places, and with him their heritage, And they shall not be separated from him for ever and ever and ever. (1 En. 71:16 OTP)

To a Bible believer, the lies about the authorship and angel’s identity are proof “its not of the truth” (1 John 2:21). As the angel in effect denies Jesus is the Son of Man the Christ who descended “in the flesh” it is a spirit of antichrist. But until the 1980’s when Professor James H. Charlesworth corrected RH Charles’ miss-translation, most didn’t realize Enoch claimed the title for himself.

However, many Christians have not received the memo. This blog makes zero use of the Book of Enoch. My unction informs me the angel speaking to Enoch is Satan pretending to be a “good angel” (1 John 2:20; 4:1-3).

Non-Christians won’t be convinced by such arguments, “ancient alien theorists” believe Enoch was taken up by Extraterrestrials and shown the secrets of the universe. But if that were true, then Enoch woudn’t claim the earth is flat, that he saw the “ends of the earth” (1Enoch 18:6) or that a burning river is in the west where the sun sets (1Enoch 17:4-5). Nor would he report there are seven burning stars at the “end of heaven and earth” (1Enoch 18:13-14). So that must be in this universe.

It is likely the apostle John had the claims of the Book of Enoch in mind when he wrote John 3:13. It rules out Enoch ascended to heaven and descended to report what he saw. Only Jesus did that. We find a parallel polemic against the book of Enoch in the Talmud:

Such veneration of Enoch would have elicited polemics from other Jews. We find evidence of such polemics in Jewish texts. We have clear textual evidence that Enoch was a threat and there was a need to polemicize against his adoration. Such a denigration of Enoch is preserved in Genesis Rabba…

Probably against such Enoch traditions, the author of the 4G claimed that ‘no one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man’. The connection with Enoch in this gospel seems assured, since Enoch is hailed as the Son of Man in 1 En. 71 and Jesus announces he is ‘the Son of Man’ in Jn. 9:35–38. This scenario seems possible, perhaps probable, since 1 En. 37–71 is now judged to be Jewish and dated to the late first century BCE by most experts.-Charlesworth, J. H. (2004).

God the Holy Spirit dwelt in Daniel (Dan. 4:8. Cp. Lk. 1:15) granting him “knowledge, understanding, interpreting dreams, solving riddles, and explaining enigmas (Dan. 5:12 NKJ).

So why didn’t Daniel understand his own End Time prophecy? Nothing in it was mysterious to him. The “holy” (06944 קֹדֶשׁ qodesh) “people” (05971 עַם `am), the “Daily” (08548 תָּמִיד tamiyd), the “abomination” (08251 שִׁקּוּץ shiqquwts) of “Desolation” (08074 שָׁמֵם shamem) are things he fully understood. Yet Daniel says: ” Although I heard, I did not understand” (Dan. 12:8):

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”
9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10 “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.
11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12 “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
13 “But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.” (Dan. 12:7-13 NKJ)

This is like a puzzle. We have pieces to fit together, then its picture is revealed.

When Daniel asks for explanation, he is told the words are sealed to the end time. There are two possibilities: 1. Either God will unseal the words in the end time supernaturally revealing hidden meaning to His prophets. 2. End time events “unseal” the words as new developments increase their application and meaning.

Number 2 is correct because it is written “many…will understand” (Dan. 12:10), the new understanding is not revealed by prophets.

Therefore, Bible Believers today are the wise who understand these sealed words. Unknown to Daniel, the apostles interpret OT Temple imagery in the New Covenant as applying to the Church, and its members are the priests sacrificing the daily, through their prayers and offerings and taking up the cross of Christ. “The wise shall understand” because Scripture makes even children among them “wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 2:15-17). Scripture interprets Scripture.

As Christ fulfilled the law the “continual” [08548 תָּמִיד tamiyd] sacrifice (ἡ θυσία δι παντoς, LXX) is now a function of Christ’s ministry. Confirming this, the apostles apply Old Testament Temple imagery to the Church, calling it “the Temple of God” (1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19; 2 Cor. 6:16; 2 Thess. 2:4; Eph. 2:21). Its members Temple priests (1 Pet. 2:5). We offer up “the Daily Sacrifice”::

you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Pet. 2:5) NKJ

As we take up Christ’s cross daily (Lk. 9:23) our sacrifice and service is continual:

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. (Heb. 13:15) NKJ

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. (Rom. 12:1) NKJ

Now that we have the “interpretive keys” to understand the prophecy, lets interpret it:

7… that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

It shall be 3.5 years (=1260 days; 42 months) to the time when the Beast King of the North is destroyed (Dan. 2:35, 44; 7:11, 22, 25-26; 8:24-25; 11:45) and Christ and His angels including Michael gather God’s elect from one part of heaven to another (Dan. 12:1. Mt. 24:30-31.) This is not the Rapture, it happens after Armageddon at the end of the seven-year end time “week of years” (Dan. 9:27).

God’s Holy People Lady Zion the Christian Church (Rev. 12:1) are like Wheat surrounded by the Weeds (Mt. 13:24-30), the True Believers surrounded by False (Rev. 11:1-2. 2 Th. 2:12-13). Because the Church is in the midst of spiritist Babylon the Harlot (Mt. 13:31-34. Rev. 18:2-4) she has political power within her. When the Harlot is destroyed, “the power of the holy people has been completely shattered.

8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”
9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Only after the New Covenant with its new Temple and Priesthood are established, will the new application of these words be understood.

10 “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

The Strong Delusion energized by spiritism induces a mass delusion. “Ancient alien theory” that “Elohim Designers” fashioned life on planet earth. Because the Nephilim documented their antediluvian corruption of life, they could point to the fossil record as “their work.” The “inworking satanic energy inducing this delusion” will only be overcome by love for God’s truth. God’s Word is Truth (John 17:17). One must believe God’s truth even when “experiences” contradict it. Be sanctified by the Holy Spirit, not energized by the mystery of lawlessness spirit (2 Th. 2:7-15).

The testing of their faith will be unprecedented, and this is how they shall be purified, made white and refined.

11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

The Great Falling Away begins the countdown. That is when the “daily” of nominal Christendom is “taken away by their own departure from the faith.” They embrace Adonikam the “man of lawlessness” false Christ (2 Th. 2:3) ending their continual service and prayer to God.

At 1260 days counting from the beginning of the end time “week of years”, when the Man of Sin discards all pretense of Christianity and embraces the abomination 666 angel-human seed of Satan identity, and Babylon the Great is destroyed by fire as her prostitutions are no longer required (Rev. 14:8; 17:15-18; 18:1-4)—there is an additional 30 days during which the image of the Beast, the abomination causing desolation is set up. All who accept his mark are eternally desolated (Rev. 14:9-11).

12 “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

There is an additional 45 days, 1260+30+45 = 1,335 days. This is the time of the Great Tribulation during which most of the Church is martyred for not accepting the Mark of the Beast. It begins when Babylon the Harlot is destroyed, but kicks into high gear when the AI Network in the Beast’s Image Mark is made operational. Blessed is he still faithful who comes to the 1, 335th day, for he shall be raptured (Rev. 14:8-16).

13 “But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.” (Dan. 12:7-13 NKJ)
