Before The Flood
We were first introduced to the issue of Nephilim in Genesis 6 around 3550BC. These days were known as the days of Jared, and 200 fallen angels descended to the top of Mount Armon. Genesis 6’s account of them begins with fallen angels having sexual relations with human women. This goes against God’s will as he mentions next in the text, and he has reserved special judgement for these angels. The offspring of these fallen angels and human women are what the bible refers to as ‘giants,’ or in some translations, Nephilim.
The Book of Enoch, which is a non-biblically canon book, but written in the same chronological pattern and in the same time elaborates on the Giants lifestyles. Enoch 7:12 talks about how they took advantage of man’s hard work. They ate all the food that man worked hard to produce, until it was impossible for them to be sustained. It get’s darker, after this the giant’s begin killing reptiles, birds, rodents, and other animals and eating their flesh, and drinking their blood. Certain translations of this text describe the giant’s inventing cannibalism, and wiping out whole other groups of Nephilim this way.
Chapter 8 in the Book of Enoch is very important in locating the origin of many un-godly things here on Earth.
1Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.
2Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
3Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots:
4Armers taught the solution of sorcery;
5Barkayal taught the observers of the stars, (9)
(9) Observers of the stars. Astrologers (Charles, p. 67).
6Akibeel taught signs;
7Tamiel taught astronomy;
8And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon,
9And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.
So now we have an Earth full of sorcery, astrology, and complete corruption. The secrets of the Heavens were being revealed on the Earth, and all of creation was falling into deep, dark, sin. The same angels who were sent to Earth to watch over us, ended up corrupting all of humanity.
After these transgressions took place God was angry and frustrated with mankind, and decided to destroy the human race through the creation of a massive nation-wide flood. Back to the canon book of Genesis, Chapter 6:12 says that all life has corrupted its way on Earth. ALL LIFE, meaning that this includes the genealogy of Noah, who was the great-grandson of Enoch. From the text as we continue in Genesis, we are able to distinguish which of Noah’s offspring had Nephilim ties.
Before the flood, the book of Enoch describes the fate of both the fallen angels, and the Nephilim. In the 120 years leading up to the great flood, this is when a lot of unholy genetic modification took place. The genetic modification of a body was intended to destroy the temple of the Holy Spirit, and make it an empty host body where evil spirits could dwell, rather than the Holy spirit. This is where we get interpretations of early mythological creatures like Centaurus, fawns, etc… Much like the trans-humanist agenda we see today, this was happening thousands of years ago. Through these means, when the fallen angels’ spirits continued to dwell on Earth after their bodies perished, they would be able to inhabit these genetically modified bodies.
You know the bible story where God tells Noah to build the Ark. Noah, his wife, his sons, and his sons wives, along with various animals board the Ark to survive the massive flood God created. This flood was intended wipe out all of the life on Earth that God created that had fallen to corruption.
However, believing that this flood was only meant to wipe out sinful humans is a far too simplistic way of looking at it. The flood had a lot more significance than that. After all, today’s world is arguably far more corrupt and filled with evil than any time in the past. The flood was meant to wipe out the Nephilim on Earth, punish the fallen angels who had betrayed God, and make an example for all the other angels in Heaven should they ever decide to betray him, and to in fact SAVE HUMANITY from its destruction. People do not often look at wiping out all of humanity as a logical method of saving it, but then again those people are not aware of the angelic human crossbreed wreaking havoc on Earth.
After the rain, and the waters subsided, God initiated a second ‘creation story. There are a large number of similarities between the original creation in the bible, and Noah and his families second beginning. This is a great topic for another time, however one similarity to note is that in both of these creations, the final evaluation is that humanities heart is truly evil.
After The Flood
We know however that there were Nephilim after the flood. The Bible talks about how they were in the promise land before the Israelite’s occupied it. How did they return after the flood? Surely they couldn’t have survived God’s massive extermination. The answer to this is more scientific than spiritual. The Bible says that a man’s act of sin is passed down 4 generations. Noah had 3 sons, Shem, Ham, & Japeth. Keeping the preceding information in mind, we have to make the conclusion that if there are Nephilim here after the great flood, someone on the Ark had Nephilim DNA in them. The Bible says that Noah was chosen because he was perfect, and his bloodline was wholly human. So now we know that Noah, his wife, and his three sons were all 100% human. The text says that his three sons were also allowed to take their wives on board. One or more of those wives must have had Nephilim DNA within them.
Some theological theorists believe that there were multiple incursions of angels reproducing with humans. The Bible however does not support these theories, and neither do the Books of Enoch, Jubilees and Jasher. The flood was meant as a great example from God what would happen if angels once again betrayed him. This is why I believe this theory of the DNA surviving the flood through one of Noah’s sons wives to be the most realistic answer to the mystery.
Earlier I mentioned how sins are passed down four generations. I included this concept in the text here because I believe it brings up an important question, are there genetic implications of sins? While I cannot cite specific resources (mainly for lack of study) where sin is replicated on a DNA helix, I have heard that this is the case. If an act of adultery, addiction, crime, etc, is replicated in DNA, surely the Nephilim code would be too. It could not be an exclusively spiritual component. This is an area of study that I find to be particularly interesting and would be very beneficial to future Nephilim studying!
