“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” (Luke 17:26)
We have looked at the origins of Satan’s religion through the first King / High Priest Nimrod, back in ancient Babylon. Now we will begin to examine something so much more sinister, systemic and potentially fatal to the human condition; – the concept that the human race has been systematically and covertly corrupted through infiltration. It’s all part of Satan’s plan to thwart God’s purposes.
PART III – INFILTRATION
“When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. …The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.” (Genesis 6:1-2, 4)
On the face of it this has to be the craziest looking verse in the Scriptures. If we want to find out what it means, were going to have to look deeply into its meaning. Let’s start with the phrase, “sons of God”. The Hebrew term is B’nai HaElohim, or the sons of Elohim, – used in the Old Testament to describe angels. Angels? Which angels? Well we get a clue from looking at Jude 1:6-7; “…the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode…as Sodom and Gomorrah…having given themselves over to sexual immorality and strange flesh”. So we’re talking about Fallen Angels here, Satan’s minions, those who followed him in rebellion; – and they partaking in what another translation describes as “fornication” with the daughters of men. These angels had left their “proper domain” or left “their first estate”.
In other words, – as is the ability of angels, – they took on some sort of physical form to copulate with human women to produce the “Nephilim” or “mighty men” of old.[i] Now another translation for Nephilim is “giants,” that’s how the King James Bible translates it. Now according to the Torah, ancient rabbinical sources and the early Church fathers, the Nephilim referred to the offspring, – products of this union between Fallen Angels and human women.[ii] What’s also interesting is that the notion that evil spirit beings procreated with humans creating “weird hybrid offspring” is found in the mythology of almost all ancient cultures; – from the Middle East to India, to the South Seas to America’s Indians.[iii] The mythology of the ancient Greeks, Middle Eastern, Nordic and other peoples are filled with stories of sexual unions between god/men and demigods. And if we are willing to look past our preconceptions, increasing evidence is being developed that these hybrid Nephilim were indeed giants. Across all the major cultures we see representations of these giants interacting.[i] Chuck Missler, Mischievous Angels or Sethites?, Personal Update News Journal, Koinia House, August 1997
