A few years ago a few of us got into a discussion at a board on the subject of the Nephilim, like one of those never-ending debates it went on for 12-13 pages if I recall. At the time I did a little research so ended up with a few articles written by a number of Bible teachers on the topic. At the end of this alert from Moriel I’ll include the links to a few of these for anyone interested.
Early in the morning as I drove home from work at 4am last week I turned on ‘Coast to Coast AM’ (truly a modern day Areopagus) as I usually do to see what topic they were discussing this morning. This time, as not that uncommon, the topic of Alien Abductions and the UFO phenomena and how through hypnosis, abductee mothers recount meeting their hybrid babies only to have them taken away never to see them again – was being discussed. Further speculation is given as to who, what, where, and why this other intelligence is creating this hybrid race and what are their future plans.
Anyone familiar with these sorts of stories will immediately recognize that that the many people who claim abduction by “aliens” all tend to report the same scenarios. I have stated in previous commentaries that it is this writer’s opinion as well as that of many credible conservative bible pastor/teachers and expositors that this phenomenon is demonic in nature and related to the last days warnings given by Jesus in the scriptures.
Jesus said in Luke,
“And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. “It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; – Luke 17:26-28
The literal interpretation of this for today is a world that is not just caught up in the things of the world, but a world as well as a church enamored and consumed by them. We do not just have weddings anymore, we have ‘extreme’ weddings and we watch and worship others as they marry.However, we must also consider the deeper meaning to these verses and that would be what took place with the Nephilim. The Nephilim are one of those names in the Bible that conjures up many different thoughts and feelings. This is mainly due to the fact that this is one of the most mysterious and difficult topics in all of scripture to understand, not to deny that there is also still some considerable debate in some circles as to it’s exact interpretation. My intention here in not to even enter into that conversation but rather to consider why every true believer in Christ should be so alarmed at what is transpiring.
“You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, or all the produce of the seed which you have sown and the increase of the vineyard will become defiled. “You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together. “You shall not wear a material mixed of wool and linen together. – Deuteronomy 22:9-11
The idea taught throughout scripture is that man is not to mix together two different kinds. The implication is that mixing kinds causes defilement and corruption.
God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. – Genesis 6:12
The most common definition of Nephilim that people immediately think of is the one used in the KJV, which is “giant”. However, two other definitions of Nephilim are a noun; a race or nation and a noun; to be an apostate or fallen. This is where the idea of the Nephilim being a race of fallen ones or those who ‘could not be saved’ comes from.The interpretation of Genesis 6:4 that the Nephilim are half human, half fallen angel makes this very simple to understand. God made a way for man to be saved from his sin through grace by faith in His Son but He did not make a way for the angels that rebelled to be saved. Therefore, a mixture of the two kinds would be a corruption and the result a “fallen race”. It is interesting that Genesis tells us that “all flesh” was corrupt in the days of Noah. What does that mean? We know that God destroyed all the animals as well as all people except those brought on the ark with Noah and his family. We can only speculate but the book of Enoch (which is not scripture but a book at least historically fit enough to be) quoted in the Epistle of Jude says this:
And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones. – Enoch 7:4-6
Again, we cannot hold this account as scripture but it does help to give us a little insight as to maybe why “all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth”. Now, what is man doing in creating these hybrids whether they are human/animal or plant/animal? Man is mixing kinds together and creating a corrupt and defiled race. It does not matter what the percentage of human verses cow DNA there is, do cows go to heaven? Frankly, man is messing with things he has no idea about – he is in effect trying to play “God”, which goes right back to the original sin in the garden. This is trying to trust in the things of this world when this world is fading away, every sign is blatantly obvious; He is here, right at the door. This in and of it self is should be enough to concern us, but then we have this evil deception taking place involving alien abductions that fits right into the whole picture.
As to what is actually taking place here we can only speculate but it is clearly not of God but demonic in origin and sounds like what took place during the days of Noah.
These are things that the Lord can put up with only so long as He will not sit by idle as the gene pool of man becomes corrupted beyond a certain point – the reason God had to intervene in Noah’s day. This will happen eventually because of the sinfulness of man. Along with this is the governments desire to track DNA along with everything else, and I think this has nothing to do with terrorism but is just the plain evil spiritual influences leading to the marl of the beast.
