Nephilim – Giants

This discussion is on the “Nephilim.” The Nephilim are mentioned in Genesis 6: 1-4  “When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with[a] humans forever, for they are mortal[b]; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” This helps bring the Flood. Most people were taught the Nephilim were the children of the righteous seed of Seth mentioned in Genesis 5. They were taught the “daughters of men” were the daughters of Cain. Calvin taught these doctrines, as do many denominations. Nephilim was translated “Giants” in the King James Bible. The “sons of God” were Seth’s seed mating with Cain’s daughters producing Giants of evil and iniquity. This became standard doctrine. The Seth theory simply does not make hermeneutic or exegetical sense; it does not tie in the “Giants” of Genesis 6:4 with the giants of Numbers 13:33 and else where in Scripture. I no longer believe this teaching and neither did the ancient Jews or the early church. The Book of Enoch and Jubilees deals with this subject.  These books were written well before the time of Christ. Enoch 1:9 was quoted in the canonized book of Jude. The great historian Josephus wrote the Nephilim were off springs of angels mating with daughters of men. Who were the “sons of God?” Were angels mating with women creating a genetically impure off spring? Who were  “the Giants?” Please read all of Deuteronomy 2 and Numbers 13. When the spies came back from the land they reported on seeing giants. The only other place Nephilim is ever used in Scripture besides Genesis 6:4 is Numbers 13:33 “We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” In the New Living Translation Bible King Og’s bed was over thirteen feet long – Deuteronomy 3: 11 “(King Og of Bashan was the last survivor of the giant Rephaites. His bed was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide.[b] It can still be seen in the Ammonite city of Rabbah.) This is no big basket player kind of man from a normal gene pool! How did these genetically deformed giants get there? This was over 800 years after the flood. Remember Goliath and his family having six toes on each foot and six fingers on each hand? Remember his stature? How did he get there? This discussion is on the giants.  Did some angels fall and mate with women creating a genetic disease? Did the flood wipe them out, yet these defective genes were still there when Israel came out of Egypt to take the Promised Land?  We see genetically modified produce now all the time known as GMO’s. We see the mixing of DNA from different species now all the time. Is this, “as it was in the days of Noah?” There are audio teachings on the site here on this subject.
