Who were the Nephilim?

Who were the Nephilim?

These are only two passages in the bible that mention the Nephilim and one that mentions the Anakites who are descendants of the Nephilim.

"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." Genesis 6: 4 (NIV)

"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.” Numbers 13: 33 (NIV)

"The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: “Who can stand up against the Anakites?” Deuteronomy 9: 2 (NIV)

All over the world we find megalithic structures that defy explanation. Were they built by the Nephilim?

Cultures all around the world have stories of giant beings that lived on earth. Are they the Nephilim?

All around the world we have found remains of people with elongated skulls. Are they the Nephilim?

The Nephilim seem to be a bit of a mystery. Does anyone have any thoughts on them?

Question: "Who / what were the Nephilim?"

Answer: 
The Nephilim (“fallen ones, giants”) were the offspring of sexual relationships between the sons of God and daughters of men in Genesis 6:1–4. There is much debate as to the identity of the “sons of God.” It is our opinion that the “sons of God” were fallen angels (demons) who mated with human females or possessed human males who then mated with human females. These unions resulted in offspring, the Nephilim, who were “heroes of old, men of renown” (Genesis 6:4).
Why would the demons do such a thing? The Bible does not specifically give us the answer. Demons are evil, twisted beings—so nothing they do should surprise us. As to a distinct motivation, one speculation is that the demons were attempting to pollute the human bloodline in order to prevent the coming of the Messiah. God had promised that the Messiah would one day crush the head of the serpent, Satan (Genesis 3:15). The demons in Genesis 6 were possibly attempting to prevent the crushing of the serpent and make it impossible for a sinless “seed of the woman” to be born. Again, this is not a specifically biblical answer, but it is biblically plausible.

What were the Nephilim? According to Hebraic and other legends (the Book of Enoch and other non-biblical writings), they were a race of giants and super-heroes who did acts of great evil. Their great size and power likely came from the mixture of demonic “DNA” with human genetics. According to the movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe (reviewed by us here), the Nephilim were fallen angels encased in rock. All that the Bible directly says about them is that they were “heroes of old, men of renown” (Genesis 6:4). The Nephilim were not aliens, angels, “Watchers,” or rock monsters; they were literal, physical beings produced from the union of the sons of God and the daughters of men (Genesis 6:1–4).

What happened to the Nephilim? The Nephilim were one of the primary reasons for the great flood in Noah’s time. Immediately after the mention of Nephilim, God’s Word says, “The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the LORD said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them’” (Genesis 6:5–7). God proceeded to flood the entire earth, killing everyone and everything other than Noah, his family, and the animals on the ark. All else perished, including the Nephilim (Genesis 6:11–22).

Were there Nephilim after the flood? Genesis 6:4 tells us, “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward.” It seems that the demons repeated their sin sometime after the flood as well. However, it likely took place to a much lesser extent than it did prior to the flood. When the Israelites spied out the land of Canaan, they reported back to Moses: “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” (Numbers 13:33). This passage does not say the Nephilim were genuinely there, only that the spies thought they saw the Nephilim. It is more likely that the spies witnessed very large people in Canaan and in their fear believed them to be the Nephilim. Or it is possible that after the flood the demons again mated with human females, producing more Nephilim. It is even possible that some traits of the Nephilim were passed on through the heredity of one of Noah’s daughters-in-law. Whatever the case, these “giants” were destroyed by the Israelites during their invasion of Canaan (Joshua 11:21–22) and later in their history (Deuteronomy 3:11; 1 Samuel 17).

What prevents the demons from producing more Nephilim today? It seems that God put an end to demons mating with humans by placing all the demons who committed such an act in isolation. Jude verse 6 tells us, “The angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.” Obviously, not all demons are in “prison” today, so there must have been a group of demons who committed further grievous sin beyond the original fall. Presumably, the demons who mated with human females are the ones who are “bound with everlasting chains.” This would prevent any more demons from attempting such sin.

Demons are the disembodied spirits of dead Nephilim. At the trans-Jordan region there were many clans. It was the early Israelite's task to wipe them out.

Some demons are allowed to plague us and most are in Sheol or the underworld wherein haSatan now rules. "I saw him fall from heaven like a star" said Yeshua.

Seldom is the word 'demon' or dimona (diablos) mentioned in the Tanach. In the new testament, Yeshua's ministry began with the casting out of demons, healing the sick and raising the dead. His trip to Mt Hermon, the gate of hell region or Bashan, was His Transfiguration episode. Caesarea Philippi (an area of devil worship) at the foot of Mt Hermon where the Watchers made their unholy pact. Yeshua was standing there and said 'upon this rock will I build my church' and 'the gates of hell will not withstand it'. 

Yeshua was claiming this evil territory for Yahweh, and proclaiming that it 'was the end' for all principalities and powers. He really poked them HARD. He deliberately atagonized them and was preparing for His death. None of those powers had a clue what was happening, so they sought to destroy Him.

As the apostle said, 'had they but known they never would have killed the King of Glory'. God always outwitted the evil spirits and principalities (Archons) and shows that He is in complete control over them. Yeshua is now seated on High with the Father and ALL THINGS have been put under His feet. Everything in Gods Creation is now under the rule and command of Yeshua/Jesus.

This is a little misleading. Look at Psalm 82. The sons of God are elohim (spirit beings) that have charge over God's creation. Some disobeyed Him. Do not confuse 'fallen ones' with demons. Demons are the disembodied spirits of dead nephilim.

Some 'fallen' are the Watchers that co-habited with human females. These are some of the fallen along with the Council Members that were sent packing and who will 'die like men'. (Psalm 82)

Deut 32 give us some more information about these being that failed to carry out the job of looking out for the nations scattered at Babel. The cause mankind to worship them and sacrifice to them. The are definitely fallen as well.

Poor teaching and a refusal to read many other Hebrew and inter-testament material has led to a disjointed view of all this. If you do not study hard your understanding will be soft. Few understand this and even fewer dare teach about it because it flies in the face of Augustinian doctrines.

To be very clear. 'Sons of God' are Yahweh's council member that rule with Him. They are not all disobedient. In the Divine Council, Yeshua now sits on the throne and is the Joint Leader or 'godhead' with the Father; 'He who sits on the Throne' and 'The Ancient of Days'.

Interesting is the fact that Yeshua said that we believers will replace the disobedient sons of God and will rule with Him in Heavenly Places. 'They will die like men', but in Christ, we shall live forever!

The Nephilim are no mystery at all, but most of us were taught falsehoods that make them seem mysterious. The Nephilim were hybrid creatures that were born to human women who had been impregnated by evil angels. Most of us are taught angels can't have sex and maybe in heaven they can't. But when they take human form apparently they can do what we can. God tried to kill all of them as well as any offspring they had, this is why He had Moses & Joshua totally destroy some cities but not others. I used to wonder why God had women, children, babies, even animals all killed. Evil angels also had sex with animals so a stray dog or a goat could contain the DNA of an evil angel, God wanted them wiped off the earth. When I was 18 I saw a movie called Rosemary's Baby which freaked me out. It's false, but it's about the false hope the devils have of starting their seed again. Actually it's too late for them bc that's why Jesus came here. By allowing Himself to be killed and then being resurrected He defeated all evil. But we have to accept Him and obey Him and when enough of us do this Jesus will return and the next phase of God's master plan will happen.

   Don't be confused by the Nephilim, they once existed but not anymore.

Justin,

thanks for the well composed explanation of the way you understand those passages.  I have thought along those lines for sometime, and have read some of the extra-biblical documents about it.  But you brought some more interesting points into focus that I had not considered before.

For those that avoid the extra-biblical documents, I encourage you to do some research to decide on your own what things to read.  Keep in mind that some of these documents are considered as mostly or partly inspired by the Council of Nicea, and previous and subsequent panels debating such issues.  Anyway, they have stood the test of time, which does not extablish them as perfectly true, but it does mean that they are more significant than all the modern books and articles you read (including my words here).

For the group that have accepted that the Nephilim are some form of Satan's force here on earth, consider this:

Place yourself into a world where such beings dominate society.  Greek Gods, Gilgamesh, etc.  Perhaps ancient history is more consistent than you have been taught by modern intellectuals.  If such things were going on around you, and yet your old grandfather Enoch insists there is a one God Most High somewhere, you might have a hard time believing in the God Most High, especially as he doesn't do much.  You see daily power events from the Nephilim.  Satan is delighted, his plan is working well, humans are repenting from God Most High in mass. 

But surprise, God Most High wipes the whole thing out with a flood (for those who know God as merciful, remember the back story is left to your faith).  Satan's strategy almost worked.

So he starts again, getting Nimrod, a mighty ensnarer BEFORE THE LORD, to lead the people into the similar trap - invading the heavens.  God Most High foils it this time by dividing the languages - the most amazing and brilliant counter-move in history.  As an aside, language is astonishing.  Consider the languages on Papua, look it up, over 850 distinct languages on one island.  Not dialects, distinct languages.  Some spoken by groups of only a few hundred.  Language evolved? Don't be a fool.

Satan's guys, Anakim perhaps, stay with some of the groups as they disperse.  They start over on their mission, to dethrone God Most High in the human race, in the region of Sodom.  God Most High once again intervenes with intensity.  I found this blog that details why this is the probable situation at Sodom and Gomorrah. https://soon.school.blog/2019/08/07/sodom-and-gomorrah/.

Satan is smart.  He sees that this technique will result in intervention from God Most High.  He switches tactics.  Instead of inducing people to revel in their knowledge of Good and Evil, he now creates numerous systems to destroy people through their knowledge of Good and Evil, separating them from God Most High.  Playing right into God's plan.

As Justin astutely observed, Jesus incites Satan's group to attack and incite the leaders and the crowd to cause his death for our sins.  Once again, God defeats Satan, this time with the unstoppable force of Mercy and Grace.

Satan is smart, he is waiting for the big event when the time is right.  In the western intellectual world his forces are under orders to primarily deceive.  In places that reject intellectualism, his power is displayed regularly.  But this is while he waits.

Think about the Nephilim.  Now think about the AntiChrist, the Beast, the Dragon of Revelation.  Think about the 2 witnesses.  Sounds more like the early bible stories, before Satan learned to avoid that approach.  Maybe in the end he will try it again? 

Just a hypothesis.  I will firm up my opinion after it is over.

You don’t mean Elohim... as the sons of God..the word you want has escaped me. Right?

He already has.  As someone who has survived SRA (satanic ritual abuse) and MK Ultra, I have seen the modern day nephilim at high level rituals.  They actually presided over some of the rituals where I was used on the altars (as a child).  Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah.... as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah... so shall it be... "  Well, we're there again....

I hope that Jesus, the King, has set you free from the effects of that.  I see that your name includes Joy, so I hope that his Joy has now replaced the destruction that Satan's group had planned for you. 

Where did these things occur?
