  1. @1to3 Hi! Okay... Let's start where God tells the Israelites to completely destroy the Anakites (where the Nephilim lived). Well, the Israelites did not obey God; remember? Let's read in Deuteronomy: Deuteronomy 7:1-2 7 When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; 2 And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Deuteronomy 20:16-18 16 But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: 17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee: 18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God. I believe that Goliath was a descendant of the Nephilim, the offspring of the “sons of God” (fallen angels) and their human wives. The Israelites failed to wipe out the Anakites, “men of great stature” and “giants”(Numbers 13:32-33) in their conquest of the Promised Land, and so the Anakites survived in Gath and its surrounding cities, eventually becoming what we know as the Philistines. Goliath was a Philistine warrior from Gath. I believe that the Nephilim were destroyed in the Flood; however, the "sons of God," being angels, did not perish. -Selah
  2. I believe that the mating of the sons of god (the fallen angels) and the daughters of Adam (flesh/human) women produced the Nephilum. This was an abomination to God and it was God that caused the great flood (Noah’s flood). Selah …
  3. Hiya, Spock! Ah! …a mere 6 feet 9 inches? I think some sources say 9 feet, but, regardless, I reckon Goliath might’ve just been 100% human. …and David got him good! Selah
  4. 1 Samuel 17 17 Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim. 2 And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines. 3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them. 4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. 7 And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. 8 And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me. 9 If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us. 10 And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. 11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid. 12 Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehemjudah, whose name was Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man went among men for an old man in the days of Saul. 13 And the three eldest sons of Jesse went and followed Saul to the battle: and the names of his three sons that went to the battle were Eliab the firstborn, and next unto him Abinadab, and the third Shammah. 14 And David was the youngest: and the three eldest followed Saul. 15 But David went and returned from Saul to feed his father's sheep at Bethlehem. 16 And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days. 17 And Jesse said unto David his son, Take now for thy brethren an ephah of this parched corn, and these ten loaves, and run to the camp of thy brethren; 18 And carry these ten cheeses unto the captain of their thousand, and look how thy brethren fare, and take their pledge. 19 Now Saul, and they, and all the men of Israel, were in the valley of Elah, fighting with the Philistines. 20 And David rose up early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper, and took, and went, as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle. 21 For Israel and the Philistines had put the battle in array, army against army. 22 And David left his carriage in the hand of the keeper of the carriage, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren. 23 And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them. 24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid. 25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel. 26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? 27 And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him. 28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle. 29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause? 30 And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner. 31 And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him. 32 And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. 33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. 34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: 35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. 36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. 37 David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee. 38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. 39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him. 40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine. 41 And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him. 42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance. 43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. 45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. 46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands. 48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. 49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. 50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled. 52 And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaaraim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron. 53 And the children of Israel returned from chasing after the Philistines, and they spoiled their tents. 54 And David took the head of the Philistine, and brought it to Jerusalem; but he put his armour in his tent. 55 And when Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner, the captain of the host, Abner, whose son is this youth? And Abner said, As thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell. 56 And the king said, Enquire thou whose son the stripling is. 57 And as David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58 And Saul said to him, Whose son art thou, thou young man? And David answered, I am the son of thy servant Jesse the Bethlehemite. -Selah
  5. Greetings... If we confess that JESUS was crucified for us because we are sinners and need a Savior, and if we believe that JESUS was buried and rose again and sits at the right hand of the Father, we will have eternal life. … Selah
  6. Hi, Justme… Revelation 13:18 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Wisdom comes from knowledge, and all wisdom is from God; from wisdom comes understanding. We are told to "count the number of the beast". (666 = 6th seal, 6th vial, 6th trumpet) 1 Timothy 6:10 "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." Money in itself is not evil, but the love or desire for money is the root cause that brings all evil. It is man's desire and his coveting of money that brings evil on himself. Colossians 3:5 "Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:" "Mortify" means to "make dead" spiritually. Paul is telling us to close our minds to them and put them away from us. Selah
  7. Numbers 6:24-26 24 “The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” Selah

  9. John 16:7-11 King James Version (KJV) 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Jesus went away not for Himself, but for us! We are the sinners! Jesus had promised the disciples that when He ascended into heaven, He would send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, and He would fill those who believed on His name and repented of their sins. …and this happened on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit guides and instructs us in all things. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts a sinner of his sins and because of the Holy Spirit, we know right from wrong. Glory! Jesus had to go away to send the Comforter and to become our Advocate before the throne of the Father. Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father and He ever lives to make intercession for us! Hallelujah! Selah
  10. There are six FUNDAMENTAL doctrines which we must master and LEAVE....if we hope to be brought to a place of "perfection" (maturity) in Him. Those are as highlighted in different colors in the above passage. So, let me ask a question. In relation to "eternal judgement". I'm very curious to see what discussion this might prompt Greetings, Jos Are you awake again? I’m not clear on what you’re asking but I went ahead and gave what I believe Hebrews 6:1-3 is saying. Can you ask your question again, please? Hebrews 6:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV) (The Peril of Not Progressing) 6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3 And this [b]we will do if God permits. I believe that Paul is saying that we must leave the basic teachings (milk) and strive to bring ourselves to perfection in the sense of having mature discernment of the Word of God. Paul is saying that after learning the principles of repentance, faith, baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead and eternal judgement, it is not needful to teach these things over and over. To a Christian, these foundational truths should be known already and it is now time to move on to deeper subjects. -Selah

  14. I have no desire to understand other faiths. There is only ONE FAITH. AMEN! … Selah Ephesians 4:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in [a]you all.
  15. Shalom, Tzephanyahu. What an awesome study; thank you! Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. I believe that these bodies were the very souls of those that had passed on and were in heaven - - in Paradise. When Jesus was crucified, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom, meaning the way to Christ, and the Holy of Holies was open to all who chose to follow the One that paid the price for their sins. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the most momentous event that has ever been in history! I believe God allowed this appearance of the dead to show those who still did not believe, those who were spiritually dead, that Jesus was truly the Son of God!!! These souls went back to the people in Jerusalem and would be recognized by them! It would show everyone that He who was crucified was Jesus the Messiah, the Christ, the Savior of the world! I’m certain that at that moment, there were many that came alive spiritually as their eyes were opened. They saw the Christ on the cross, and they had the prophecy from the prophets of old. Today, we have God’s written Word! Hallelujah!! Selah
