By: Mark Tabata (Evangelist)
Several passages of Scripture bear witness to the existence of giants, and how many of these beings once enslaved mankind.
Genesis 6:1-4-1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Numbers 13:28-Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there.
Numbers 13:32-33-32 And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature.
33 There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
Deuteronomy 2:9-11- Then the LORD said to me, ‘Do not harass Moab, nor contend with them in battle, for I will not give you any of their land as a possession, because I have given Ar to the descendants of Lot as a possession.’ ”
10 (The Emim had dwelt there in times past, a people as great and numerous and tall as the Anakim.
11 They were also regarded as giants, like the Anakim, but the Moabites call them Emim.
Deuteronomy 2:20-23-20 (That was also regarded as a land of giants; giants formerly dwelt there. But the Ammonites call them Zamzummim,
21 a people as great and numerous and tall as the Anakim. But the LORD destroyed them before them, and they dispossessed them and dwelt in their place,
22 just as He had done for the descendants of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, when He destroyed the Horites from before them. They dispossessed them and dwelt in their place, even to this day.
23 And the Avim, who dwelt in villages as far as Gaza—the Caphtorim, who came from Caphtor, destroyed them and dwelt in their place.)
Deuteronomy 3:11-For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the giants. Indeed his bedstead was an iron bedstead. (Is it not in Rabbah of the people of Ammon?) Nine cubits is its length and four cubits its width, according to the standard cubit.
1 Chronicles 20:6-Yet again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, with twenty-four fingers and toes, six on each hand and six on each foot; and he also was born to the giant.
Nevertheless, many skeptics of the Bible attack His Word and attempt to destroy people’s faith in the one true God. They claim that there never were giants, and that this is an example of the ignorance and superstition of Bible writers.
What many are not aware of is the fact that other ancient historical references outside of the Bible document the existence of giants.
Existence Of Giants According To Ancient Historians
One of the most celebrated works to survive through the ages is known as the Works of Pliny the Elder.
A Roman scholar, Pliny was well known in the ancient world for his historical and scholarly works.
Regarding the existence of giants, he writes:
“A mountain of the island of Crete having been burst asunder by the action of an earthquake, a body was found there standing upright, forty-six cubits in height; by some persons it is supposed to have been that of Orion; while others again are of opinion that it was that of Otus. It is generally believed, from what is stated in ancient records, that the body of Orestes, which was disinterred by command of an oracle, was seven cubits in height. It is now nearly one thousand years ago, that that divine poet Homer was unceasingly complaining, that men were of less stature in his day than they had formerly been. Our Annals do not inform us what was the height of Nævius Pollio; but we learn from them that he nearly lost his life from the rush of the people to see him, and that he was looked upon as a prodigy. The tallest man that has been seen in our times, was one Gabbaras by name, who was brought from Arabia by the Emperor Claudius; his height was nine feet and as many inches. In the reign of Augustus, there were two persons, Posio and Secundilla by name, who were half a foot taller than him; their bodies have been preserved as objects of curiosity in the museum of the Sallustian family.” (Pliny The Wlder, Translated by John Bostock and Henry Thomas Riley, Complete Works of Pliny the Elder, 6064-6075 (Kindle Edition); Hastings, East Sussex; Delphi Classics)
Speaking of the historical reckoning and reliability of these statements, Cooper has pointed out some interesting facts:
“The body of Orestes which Pliny mentions, was measured at seven cubits, which equals some 12 feet in our terms; 6 whilst those of Pusio and Secundilla were some 10 feet 3 inches in height. It is a great pity that Pliny did not discuss them at greater length, though it is worth mentioning that the Romans were very exact in measuring things. If they tell us that Gabbara stood at 9 feet 9 inches, and Pusio and Secundilla at 10 feet 3, then we can rely on the exactness of those measurements. The Romans were not fools, and Pliny treasured his own reputation as a scholar too much to be caught out in a lie. After all, when he wrote his account, there were many hundreds in Rome still living who would have seen and spoken with these giants -and many rival scholars (Pollio and Livy among them) who would have delighted in exposing Pliny as a fraud or a fool had he got his facts wrong. The fact that that never happened should tell us something.”. (Bill Cooper, The Authenticity Of The Book Of Judges, 694-700 (Kindle Edition)).
The testimony of Pliny is one of the many evidences which confirm the existence and nature of giants.
The Jewish historian, Josephus also records these interesting words about giants:
“For many angels of God accompanied with women, and begat sons that proved unjust, and despisers of all that was good, on account of the confidence they had in their own strength; for the tradition is, that these men did what resembled the acts of those whom the Grecians call giants. But Noah was very uneasy at what they did; and being displeased at their conduct, persuaded them to change their dispositions and their acts for the better: but seeing they did not yield to him, but were slaves to their wicked pleasures, he was afraid they would kill him, together with his wife and children, and those they had married; so he departed out of that land.” (The Complete Works Of Flavius Josephus, One of the best known translations of Josephus’s work, translated by William Whiston in 1737 Formatted by E.C. Marsh 2010, 1103-1108 (Kindle Edition); ecmarsh.com)
“For which reason they removed their camp to Hebron; and when they had taken it, they slew all the inhabitants. There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men.” (Flavius Josephus, The Complete Works Of Flavius Josephus, translated by William Whiston in 1737 Formatted by E.C. Marsh 2010, 4571 (Kindle Edition); ecmarsh.com)
The testimony of the ancient Egyptians is equally incredible.
In describing the warrior campaigns against the Canaanites, we read:
“23,5 ones to look. Their eyes are good, thy hand grows weak(?)”. 25: T\’ Q “^ /Q3 rn2«*’. Thou makest the name of every Maher, officers of the land of Egypt”. Thy name becomes like (that of) K-dr-d-y ^ the chief of *I-s-r ^* ^ when the hyena” found him in the balsam-tree’*. —The( r) narrow defile’* is infested (?) with Shosu concealed beneath the bushes; some of them are of four cubits or of five cubits, from head(??) to foot(?)'”, fierce of face, their heart is not mild, and they hearken not to coaxing. Thou art alone, there is no helper(?)” with thee, no army””. (Alan henderson Gardiner, Egyptian Hieratic Texts, 1068-1086 (Kindle Edition))
The Egyptians here record their battles against the Shosu, who were a race of giants that lived in the land of Canaan. The cubit mentioned here is an Egyptian royal cubit of 20.62 inches, which means that the Shosu were anywhere from 7-10 feet tall!
While skeptics of these records maintain that these accounts of giants are not trustworthy, it is fascinating to notice that there were other records kept of the Shosu.
The Egyptians kept drawings of these creatures, and the size difference between the Shosu and the Egyptians is indeed staggering.
It is also worth mentioning here that the Egyptians drew pictures of the Shosu, and other giant populations, walking alongside of and towering over giraffes and horses.
Along these lines, on the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser the III, the giants captured in battle are depicted as being much taller then the war horses of the Assyrian Empire.
The ancient historian, Herodotus, also describes the existence of giants in these words:
“For as there were at that time dealings under truce with the men of Tegea, he had come to a forge there and was looking at iron being wrought; and he was in wonder as he saw that which was being done. The smith therefore, perceiving that he marvelled at it, ceased from his work and said: “Surely, thou stranger of Lacedemon, if thou hadst seen that which I once saw, thou wouldst have marvelled much, since now it falls out that thou dost marvel so greatly at the working of this iron; for I, desiring in this enclosure to make a well, lighted in my digging upon a coffin of seven cubits in length; and not believing that ever there had been men larger than those of the present day, I opened it, and I saw that the dead body was equal in length to the coffin: then after I had measured it, I filled in the earth over it again.””. (Herodotus, The Histories, 527-537 (Kindle Edition); Start Publishing LLC)
Some of the most powerful evidence regarding the existence of giants comes from Native American tradition and legend.
One author, in documenting the historical traditions of his people after. being commissioned to do so by his tribal elders, wrote the following:
“Rarely do we hear why the Creator destroyed the earth with water. I turned my attention back to PipeCarrier, whose war scarred face was showered with moonlight as it cascaded down his back as if tracing the length of his long black hair and asked him, “What do you know of the star people?” PipeCarrier focused his gaze beyond the moon into the deep evening sky full of shining stars. He pointed to The Warrior constellation’s belt and said. “They fell from the heavens in the ancient times. They took our women. They were not washte [good].” PipeCarrier confirmed what I have heard from many other tribal elders. My father told me that there was a great battle in the Sky World where good spirit and bad spirits were fighting one another. The bad spirits were thrown from the heavens down to the earth below where they made themselves out to be gods. These star people took our women by force and the resulting children became the race of giants that we read about in historical accounts from cultures around the world, including the Bible. Interestingly enough, the repeating similarity is these beings came from the sky, took the human women, and produced a race of giants….When I served in the U.S. Army, I met a traditional Navajo woman whose family was of the Bitter Water and Towering House Clans. We were on guard duty together one evening when we were deployed out in the desert, and we began talking about the star people. The most famous of the Southwestern star people is Kokopelli. This figure is well-known in pan-Indian Native American art and even common art that can be found in national retail stores although its origin is in Southwest United States. Kokopelli is one of the star people who fell from the heavens to the desert region of the Southwest, according to native tradition. He quickly made himself out to be a god of rain and fertility demanding worship and tribute of a young woman in exchange for bringing the rains to the fields or fertility to women by playing his flute. In the older renditions of him, he is often depicted with a hunched back, four protrusions sticking out of his back and two arms holding a flute which he would play to lure women to himself. Sometimes in more modern depictions, the four protrusions are what look like four crazy dreadlocks poking out from the top and back of his head. There are even many of the ancient drawings that depict him with an erect phallus, alluding to the sexual nature and focus of this false god. His portraits are not just found in the Southwest; there is even a petroglyph carving of Kokopelli on the island of Puerto Rico where he visited the Taino Native Americans. The stories of Kokopelli are vast across many Native cultures. It is strange to me that this seducing spirit could have grown in such popularity across the country. It is crucial that we know the origins of the things that we have or decide to pass along to another generation. For some time as a child, my wife lived on the Navajo reservation in Shonto, Arizona where an old song is occasionally sung: “Fathers, hide your daughters; Kokopelli is coming!” Kokopelli is just one of many “star people” that fell to the earth and made themselves out to be “gods.” There are numerous accounts of giant tribes that sprung forth as a direct result of these fallen ones mixing with the human women. The common thread in the many cross-cultural stories across the globe is that these beings taking human women and breeding a race of giants. It is found throughout the world; so many cultures have stories that have been passed down for thousands of generations centering on these giants. If you are a believer in the Bible, yet find yourself incredulous at the mention of this subject, ask yourself why? Either you do or do not believe the Bible when it says in Genesis 6:1-4…In Genesis 6, we clearly read that these races of giants covered the earth. It distinctly tells us that the fallen ones looked upon the women and wanted them so they took them, had relations with them, and from these unions the giants were born. Why is this subject not discussed in churches and Bible studies? Are we to be multiple choice believers, picking and choosing what we want to believe concerning the Word of God? Heaven forbid! For centuries the skeletal remains of these giants have been systematically unearthed. In America, we find countless newspaper articles and reports detailing skeletal remains of these giants ranging from seven to twelve feet tall, and in some rare instances even larger. For the scientific community at large to admit the existence of these skeletal remains means two things: First, that evolution, as it is currently presented, is wrong. And secondly, that the physical evidence gives credence to Scriptural accounts of giants since it validates what was written thousands of years ago by Moses, inspired by God. One semester, my Archaeology/Anthropology professor was doing a lecture on Native American “legends” and began talking about the Muscogee Creek Indian stories that centered around Este-Papv (Ishtee-Papa). The professor was telling us that the stories are talking about a mountain lion which is not what the stories are about. Este-Papv in the Muscogee language means “Man-Eater.” This “Man-Eater” lived in a cave and was a giant who frequently raided villages and would decapitate the warriors who tried to kill him. Then “Este-Papv” would suck the blood out of their lifeless bodies and then eat the remains. The more commonly used word in the Muscogee language for panther or lion is Katcv (Kat-chuh) according to what Micco Blue of the Holatte Grounds shared with me. The odds of so many cultures worldwide telling the same stories with the same details are beyond chance. In the Native American stories of these giants there are several recurring themes. These are a few of them: • Most of the giant tribes were red-haired. • The giants were sexually and ritually sadistic. • The giants were cannibalistic, frequently raiding nearby Native villages for meals and blood-drinking sacrifices. • They were seven feet and taller. • They had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. • Some stories tell of the giants having double rows of teeth. Whenever these skeletal remains were found, excavated, or accidentally unearthed they were often sent to the Smithsonian Institute, never to be seen again. Not only do these remains found throughout the country validate the Biblical record, it is also authenticates the oral history of Native American tribes. Unfortunately, the scientific community does not accept indigenous oral history as a valid source of information….One day I was in a bookstore when I felt the prompting to pick up a book on tattoo designs. I didn’t know why Creator would have me look through a tattoo book, but I picked it up and started flipping through it. The art was page after page of typical tattoo montages of skulls, snakes, hearts, and other designs until I came to a page depicting a Hindu god and goddess. I stood there as illumination at what I was seeing hit me in waves. One of the so-called gods had four arms and the other had six arms! I read the legends of these two demons and sure enough they both “fell from the heavens” and were worshipped as gods. This was a fallen cherub and a fallen seraph taking on the persona of a god/goddess in a country half a world away from here with the same story as what has been told amongst Native people of the Americas. I received more insight when I read the Book of Enoch. While it is not part of the canonized Bible, it is quoted in the New Testament just like the Book of Jasher. Most see them as history books that fill in some of the background details found in the Old Testament. If you feel led to read these books just keep in mind that they are not Scripture but they do offer us historical insights. I suggest, if you have an interest in these books, praying and asking the Lord whether or not you should read them. If you read them, I suggest approaching them as reading a history book written by an unverified source. They do not claim to be from the mouth of God, and it is important that we remember that. That being said, the Book of Enoch goes into detail about the fallen angels and the things they taught mankind, as well many other things that the church deemed heresy at the time such as the earth revolving around the sun. After being cleared by the Lord to read the Book of Enoch one day, I began. What I found shocked me. The name of one of the fallen angels, as transcribe by Enoch who was Noah’s great, great grandfather, is Kokabel. Is this striking resemblance to the name “Kokopelli” merely a coincidence? I don’t believe this is any accident of phonetics. Even more disturbing is the breakdown of this false god’s name. Koko in the native Zuni language means “Lord or God” and Pelli means “Flies.” We find this exact same definition written in Hebrew in the Bible.” (Chief Joseph RiverWind Assisted by Laralyn RiverWind, That’s What The Old Ones Say: Pre-Colonial Revelations Of God, 122-129 (Kindle Edition); Marble, NC; Word Branch Publishing)
The testimony of history is clear: the giants did indeed exist!
Yet I believe that we should also consider some of the evidences from our current day and age that demonstrate giants did indeed exist.
Bill Cooper provides some startling evidences regarding the unearthing of giant remains in modern times:
“But why should we be surprised at these things? Like dragons -like the Great Flood itself -giants are known to every culture under the sun. Virtually every nation on earth remembers a time when they were neighbours to, or lived amongst giant populations, and the Israelites were no exception. Giant peoples were known to them under various names: The Nephilim, the Rephaim, the Tzuzim, the Anakim, to name a few, all of whom were noted by the Israelites for their great stature; and even amongst later scholars and writers of the classical world we find mention of similar gigantic peoples. Homer, Lucretius, Virgil, Juvenal, Pliny, and even po-faced Augustine of Hippo all write of them. Whether they were writing truth or fable, however, may be judged by the mention of gigantic peoples which have appeared in more modern times, and which have been written about and lectured upon by ‘establishment’ anthropologists and archaeologists. Note the following report which appeared in The Princeton Union, on October 11th 1894: “In a prehistoric cemetery recently uncovered at Montpellier, France, while workmen were excavating a waterworks reservoir, human skulls were found measuring 28, 31 and 32 inches in circumference. The bones which were found with the skulls were also of gigantic proportions. These relics were sent to the Paris academy, and a learned ‘savant’ who lectured on the find says that they belonged to a race of men between ten and fifteen feet in height.” 10 The ‘learned savant’ of the article was Dr Georges Vacher de Lapouge (1854-1936), and his findings were corroborated in full by Dr Paul Valéry, a colleague of his at the University of Montpellier between 1886 -1891.11 Would these men -these revered figures of the establishment –have willingly thrown away their careers and reputations for a stupid hoax? It seems not, for six months later, this same report appeared again in another journal, there having been plenty of time for the facts to be checked. 12 And then, out of Castelnau in France appeared this report: “In the year 1890, some human bones of enormous size, double the ordinary in fact, were found in the tumulus of Castelnau (Herault) [France], and have since been carefully examined by Prof. Kiener, who, while admitting that the bones are those of a very tall race, nevertheless finds them abnormal in dimensions and apparently of morbid growth. They undoubtedly re-open the question of ‘giants’ of antiquity, but do not furnish sufficient evidence to decide it.” 13…The photo taken of the bones at the time of their discovery (see Fig. 19 above) shows clearly the immense difference in size between them and the ‘normal’ modern human femur placed between them. Kiener’s staid and learned paper on the remains may be read to this day, 14 and it is notable that neither in the case of the Montpellier remains, nor yet those of Castelnau, has any serious attempt been made by anthropologists or archaeologists to dispute the simple facts of the case. In other words, the facts are unarguable. These are indeed the bones of gigantic human beings who stood up to 15 feet in height. As for the most famous giant in all history -Goliath -what can we say of him other than this? -his name has been discovered inscribed on a potsherd in the ruins of his hometown of Gath (Tel es-Safi, Israel) dating to within 70 years of his slaying by David, i.e. to about 950 BC (see Fig. 20 below). 15 Interesting, isn’t it, when we consider what the critics have been saying all these years.”. (Bill Cooper, The Authenticity Of The Book Of Judges, 751-776 (Kindle Edition))
Amazingly, there is a great deal of evidence from right here in the United States that these giant populations existed!
Indeed, many newspapers throughout our country over the last several hundred years have reported the discovery of tombs of giants.
Consider some of the articles:
“On the upper terrace, within the corporate limits of Monongahela City, are situated the garden and greenhouse of Mr. I.S. Crall. Two ravines on the east and west sides open directly south into Pigeon Creek, and their erosion has lowered the ground until it is surrounded by higher land on every side except along the bluff next to the creek. …In excavating for foundation walls and other purposes, Mr. Crall has, at different times, unearthed skeletons of large size: the ground is strewn with mussel shells, flint chips etc. On the eastern side of this levee, near the break of the ravine, and close to a never-failing spring, stands the largest mound above the one at McKee’s rocks, measuring 9 feet in height and 60 feet in diameter… at the center a hole measuring 3 feet across the top and 2 feet into the original soil. In this were fragments of human bones too soft to be preserved. They indicated an adult of large size. The gray clay was unbroken over this hole. Directly over this, above the clay and resting upon it, were portions of another large skeleton, with which was found part of an unburned clay tube or pipe.” (The Wichita Daily Eagle – November 17, 1891)
“There has just been received at the Maryland Academy of Sciences, the skeleton of an Indian seven feet tall. It was discovered near Antietam. There are now skeletons of three powerful Indians at the Academy who at one time in their wildness roamed over the state of Maryland armed with such instruments as nature gave them or that their limited skill taught them to make. Two of these skeletons belonged to individuals evidently of gigantic size. The vertebrae and bones of the legs are nearly as thick as those of a horse and the length of the long bones exceptional. The skulls are of fine proportions, ample and with walls of moderate thickness and of great strength and stiffened beyond with a powerful occipital ridge. The curves of the forehead are moderate and not retreating, suggesting intelligence and connected with jaws of moderate development.”. (BALTIMORE AMERICAN, NOVEMBER 15, 1897)
“The skeleton of a giant Indian, maybe seven or more feet in height, who died and was buried about the time Christ was born, has been unearthed from prehistoric burial grounds along the Potomac River near Point of Rocks recently. Nicholas Yinger, who has been excavating at this and other sites of early Indian villages along the Potomac River in recent years, discovered the skeleton of the giant Indian, along with the other artifacts buried with the body, on Saturday, April 28, just a few weeks ago.” (MORNING HERALD, MAY 14, 1956)
“Along the Susquehanna River in Indiana County, Pennsylvania a major Indian burial site was uncovered. All together, forty-nine skeletons were exhumed, the tallest being eight feet tall. These skeletons were reportedly taken to the Harrisburg Museum for reassembly and then shipped to the Smithsonian for further study. However, the Smithsonian denies any knowledge of them. On the site of the William H. Rhea farm (circa 1871–1880) in Conemaugh Township just west of the mouth of Black Legs Creek, skeletons of men, probably Indians, were found. Noted local historian Clarence Stephenson says, “One of the skeletons is of a giant nearly eight feet tall. The giant’s skeleton measured 89 inches from the top of the skull to the phalanges of the feet. It was covered with small stones, lay on the back, and measured 26 inches across the chest.””. (CHARLEROI MAIL, MAY 7, 1953)
“On July 13, Professor Skinner of the American Indian Museum, excavating the mound at Tioga Point, near Sayre, Pennsylvania, uncovered the bones of 68 men, which he estimates had been buried at least seven or eight hundred years. The average height indicated by the skeletons was seven feet, but many were taller. Evidence of the gigantic size of these men was seen in huge axes found beside the bones.” (CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL, SEPTEMBER 20, 1916)
These articles (and many more) are referenced in Richard J. Dewhurst’s book, The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America: The Missing Skeletons And The Great Smithsonian Cover-Up (Rochester, Vermont; Toronto, Canada; Bear & Company).
Newspaper articles from reputable news agencies around our country, dating back hundreds of years, document the existence of these giants.
Consider also that researchers who have devoted their lives to studying these matters have found physical evidences of the Nephilim giants throughout the world.
Why The Cover-Up?
One thing continually comes to the surface in the investigations of these matters: there is an attempt by some in academia and scholarly circles to deliberately cover up th truth of these findings.
One researcher, after examining a lifetime of evidence about the existence of these Giants and the attempted cover-up of the truth, provided his opinion regarding these matters:
“In my opinion it becomes clear that those at the helm of the Smithsonian were engaged in the deliberate obfuscation of evidence that would offer another paradigm than the accepted Darwinian one that then and now permeate all of science and academia. The question is why would men of science deliberately engage in this? And, I believe I have an answer. If these skeletons exist, and by all of the overwhelming evidence both from the written record found in newspapers and accounts from scientists, as well as the oral traditions from Native Americans, they pose a direct threat to the pervading world view, Darwinism.”. (L.A. Marzulli, On The Trail Of The Nephilim-Volume One-Giant Skeletons & Ancient Megalithic Structures,1341-1350 (Kindle Edition); Spiral Of Life Publishing)
The desire of some to hold to the illusion of Darwinian evolution may be one reason for such an attempted coverup of the truth.
The Connection Between Nephilim And “Aliens”
I want to make one final note in this study of “Giants.”
There is a great deal of evidence that the physical appearance of the nephilim is strikingly similar to that of reported “aliens” in our world today.
Investigating the many ancient accounts of the “nephilim” found throughout the world, one author has written:
“Nephilim mirrored their fathers, fallen angels, for watchers possess the face of a viper 36 serpents identified as seraphim, 37 employed as liaisons between heaven and earth. 38 Satan took the form of a seraph when he deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden. 39 Serpent-like angels were recorded in the Gnostic gospel Origin of the World, possessing faces that were long and narrow, prominent cheekbones, elongated jawbones, thin lips, and slanted eyes (similar to aliens), while their offspring looked just like them. 40…Postdiluvian Nephilim are also captured in Canaanite art, which clearly portrays beings with long, serpentine necks, heads like cobras, small mouths and coffee bean eyes. 47 Rephaim, surprisingly enough, crop up often in Canaanite texts, where the appellation translates as “divine beings.”…Again, similar images of serpentine beings have been found in ancient monuments from both Egypt and Central America, which ostensibly date back to the antediluvian epoch. 49 These sculptures appear to be images of long-necked and sloped-headed Anakites….In short, the colossal Nephilim were a race of giants that were tall in stature and mighty in size, strength, and dexterity. They were voracious hunters with unending appetites. Their appearance was frightful to the eyes and their sounds harsh to the ears. Nephilim were beasts with long necks and faces like serpents, similar to aliens we now mythologize. They were indeed a mutation onto themselves, a distinct race that partnered with misguided humans to sponsor Snake Brotherhoods that eventually usurped all the governments of the antediluvian age.” (Gary Wayne, The Genesis 6 Conspiracy: How Secret Societies And The Descendants Of Giants Plan To Enslave Humankind, 925-930 (Kindle Edition); Trusted Books-An Imprint Of Deep River Books)
Considering the anti-Christian message being propagated by the “aliens” who masquerade as extra-terrestrials (which has been documented in prior articles), this similarity between them and the Nephilim is striking and worthy of reflection.
The findings of secular history confirm in stunning detail the accuracy of the Bible regarding giants.
These things also speaks to us regarding the subject of Divine judgment; for the first race of giants was wiped off the face of the Earth (along with the antediluvian race of man) because of rebellion against God (Genesis 6-9). This judgment of God upon the Earth by water foreshadowed how one Day the Lord would bring judgment on the world through fire.
2 Peter 3:5-7-5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,
6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment.
While all sinners are guilty before God (Romans 3:23), the Lord of glory has prepared a plan by which we may be saved. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Jesus Christ suffered and died for the sins of mankind on Calvary (Romans 5:8). He was buried, and the days later He arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
He has promised salvation to those believes who will repent of their sins, confess their faith in Him, and be baptized into Him for the remission of their sins and be faithful to Him to death (Acts 2:37-47; 8:35-38; 22:16; Revelation 2:10).
When we are baptized into Christ, we are born again (John 3:5; Romans 6:3-4) and are made members of God’s church or family (Acts 2:47; Colossians 1:13).
When we sin and fall short as Christians, He will forgive us when we repent and confess our sins to Him in prayer (Acts 8:22; 1 John 1:9).
Why not obey Him today?
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
