Part Ten: Modern Discoveries of Giants

The Bible clearly teaches that the union of demons and women produced a race of hybrids known as the Nephilim, who were on the earth before the flood and afterwards. All ancient Jewish and (ante-Nicene) Christian literature (that spoke of the days of Noah) unanimously agreed that demons mingled their seed with women and produced the hybrid race known as the Nephilim. We should expect to find, therefore, some archaeological evidence of the Nephilim.

In addition to the many written modern accounts of explorers and miners discovering men of extremely large proportions, there are also some archaeological findings. However, in our day seeing is not always believing because computer programs like Photoshop can make the unreal look very convincing. Unfortunately there are many photos floating around the internet that are hoaxes that look fairly authentic. Thus our challenge, short of going out and doing the dig ourselves, is to sort through what is legitimate evidence and what is not. In this chapter I have, with care, selected photos taken before the advent of the computer and news reports from actual newspapers – all of which come from sources which can be verified for the skeptical reader. While the thesis of this book does not stand or fall on such evidence, it is important to help us see that there were giants in those days and afterward, always keeping in mind that Jesus said that His coming would be like the days of Noah.

Irish Giant

One way to test the genuineness of pictorial evidence is to find such pictures that were taken before the invention of the computer and Photoshop. That is not to say that the object in the picture is necessarily real, but the photograph itself is not something that has been created (or altered) with the aid of a computer. One such example is brought to us by W. G. Wood-Martin, who in 1901 wrote of the Irish Pre-Christian Traditions in his book Traces of the Elder Faiths of Ireland: A Folklore Sketch (Volume 1). In his book he includes both textual and photographic evidence of giants. The text is intriguing and corroborates what we have been investigating on giants. Wood-Martin quotes Augusthie from his chapter on “The Lives and Sizes of the Antediluvians” (De Civitate Dei, xv. 9):

Concerning the magnitude of their bodies, the graves laid bare by age or the force of rivers and various accidents, especially convict the incredulous where they have come to light, or where the bones of the dead of incredible magnitude have fallen. I have seen, and not I alone, on the shore of Utica, so huge a molar tooth of a man, that were it cut up into small models of teeth like ours, it would seem enough to make a hundred of them. But this I should think had belonged to some giant, for beside that the bodies of all men were then much larger than ours, the giants again far exceeding the rest.” Kirby, in his Wonderful (and Eccentric Museum), published in 1820, devotes a chapter to a description of ” Gigantic Remains,” and states that ” all the public prints make mention of an extraordinary monument of gigantic Iniman stature, found by two labourers in Leixlip Churchyard, on the 10th July, 1812. It appeared to have belonged to a man of not less than ten feet in height, and is believed to be the same mentioned by Keating — Phelim O’Tool, buried in Leixlip Churchyard, near the Salmon Leap, one thousand two hundred and fifty years ago. In the place was found a large finger-ring of pure gold. There were no inscriptions or characters of any kind upon it. One of the teeth is said to have been as large as an ordinary forefinger, (emphasis mine).

Wood-Martin then includes a story and photograph taken from Strand Magazine December, 1895 edition and he says to “let the reader judge as to the genuineness of the fossilized Irish giant, which is thus described:”

Irish Giant

Irish Giant

Pre-eminent among the most extraordinary articles ever held by a railway company is the fossilized Irish giant, which is at this moment lying at the London and North-Western Railway Company’s Broad street goods depot, and a photograph of which is reproduced here… This monstrous figure is reputed to have been dug up by a Mr. Dyer whilst prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim.

The principal measurements are: entire length, 12 ft. 2 in.; girth of chest, 6 ft. 6 in.; and length of arms, 4 ft. 6 in. There are six toes on the right foot. The gross weight is 2 tons 15 cwt.; so that it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article of lost property in position for the Strand magazine artist. (Strand Magazine December 1895, C.F. Wood-Martin, 1901:58, emphasis mine)

Just how much is 2 tons 15 CWT? Due to the fact that this artifact was measured in England, we must use the Imperial (British) units of measurement. The British ton, known as a long ton is equal to 2240 pounds whereas the American ton is 2000 pounds. The centrum weight abbreviated CWT is equal to 112 pounds. Thus the total weight of two (long) tons is 4480 pounds and 15 CWT is 1680. The entire weight in pounds therefore is 6,160. Of course, the man in the coffin did not weigh that much when alive and the fossilization process added to the overall weight. Nevertheless, the Antrim Giant corroborates what King Og of Bashan must have been like. If we return to the original calculation, first made by Galileo, then measuring twice the height of today’s man (of six feet and optimal weight of 200 lbs.), the Antrim Giant ought to have had a net weight of 1600 lbs. Not only was this Irish Giant also two feet taller than Goliath, but he also had six toes on the right foot just like the Rephaim (which were counted among the Nephilim).

Yet again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, with twenty-four fingers and toes, six on each hand and six on each foot; and he also was born to the giant [Rephaim, LXX reads: giants, γιγαντες], (1 Chronicles 20:6).

The Fossilized Irish Giant is by no means the only evidence. There are many reports, written and archaeological that attest to the fact that giants were real. Like the evidence of the Irish Giant, I have sought out evidence that is not subject to Photoshop types of tricks.

Petrified Foot More Than Two Feet Long

Petrified Foot

Petrified Foot

A news report from the Chillicothe Weekly Constitution, 1917 also speaks of an enormous foot that was found in a coal mine in Iowa.

A petrified foot more than two feet long was found in a coal mine near Lehigh by miners at Fort Dodge Iowa. It is perfectly formed and weighs more than 30 pounds. The foot was dislodged by the miners at the 90 foot level of the mine.

The owner of the foot was probably about 13 feet tall (the formula is 6.6 inches in height for every inch of length of the foot).

New York Tribune: Prehistoric Giant

According to the New York Tribune, February 3, 1909 a 15 foot human skeleton tall was unearthed in Mexico. We recall that King Og of Bashan was that tall and he was reported to be of the Nephilim.

News was received here Monday from Mexico that at Ixtapalapa, a town 10 miles southeast of Mexico City there had been discovered what was believed to be the skeleton of a prehistoric giant of extraordinary size.

NY Tribune

NY Tribune

A peon while excavating for the foundation of a house on the estate of Augustin Juarez found the skeleton of a human being that is estimated to have been about 15 feet high, and who must have lived ages ago, judging from the ossified state of the bones.

Romulo Luna, judge of the District, has taken possession of the skeleton which is complete with the exception of the skull. Judge Luna says that as soon as the search for the skull is finished the skeleton will be forwarded to the national museum of Mexico, which has an almost priceless collection of Aztec antiquities. The National museum, it is said, has made arrangements to investigate this “find.”

NY Tribune Excerpt

Giant Found in Mexico

The discovery of the skeleton has revived the old Aztec legend that in a prehistoric age a race of giants lived [in the] valley of Anahuac, a name given by the aboriginal Mexicans to that part of the Mexican plateau nearly corresponding to the modern valley of Mexico City. These giants, known as Quinatzins, the story goes, were afterwards destroyed by the Ulmecas, also of great stature, who in turn, perished by earthquake, interpreted as an expression of the wrath of God, (emphasis mine).

Oelwein Register

Giants of Prehistoric France

The Oelwein Register on November 8, 1894 reported that scientists confirmed the find of a race of giants between 10 and 15 feet tall.

Figure 40  Oelwein Register on November 8, 1894

In a prehistoric cemetery recently uncovered at Montpellier, France, while workmen were excavating a waterworks reservoir, human skulls were found measuring 28, 31 and 32 inches in circumference. The bones that the workmen discovered were also of gigantic proportions. The discoveries were sent to the Paris Academy for study. One of the scientists engaged in examining the skeletons says that they belonged to a race of men who stood between 10 and 15 feet in height,” (Emphasis mine).

Strange Find by Miners of Apollo Mines

Charleroi Mail

Petrified Foot

Figure 51 Newspaper “Charleroi Mail”, July 1909

Appearing in the Newspaper “Charleroi Mail”, July 1909 edition, was a news report of a petrified giant whom the finders considered to be absolutely human. The problem is that according to evolution, no human should be found at such a depth as it would indicate the person to be millions of years old. According to the Bible, there were giants on the earth before the days of the flood and hence finding a giant so far below the ground only serves to confirm the veracity of the Bible and the flood. “75 Feet Below the Surface – Petrified Human Head and Shoulders Discovered – No Doubt About it Being Human Remains – Museums Making Inquiries Specimen is Very Hard.”


The evidence we have seen in this section confirms what the Bible has said. Given that there are so many fake pictures out on the internet, it seemed prudent to look for sources that predate things like Photoshop. Therefore we found sources that are copies of old newspapers including testimony and sometimes pictures of strange finds. All of the sources are given for the inquisitive reader to verify the details. Therefore the conclusion that we have arrived at is that there have been extraordinarily large men in the past. Some were found at a great depth under the earth which only serves to confirm that they were buried during a great cataclysm that came upon the earth – which obviously was the flood in the days of Noah.

Summary of Part Two: Satan’s Failed First Attempt

Let’s recap what we have seen concerning the days of Noah. First of all, we have seen that men began to multiply on the face of the earth and there were conceivably over ten billion people at the time! We investigated and without reservation concluded that the sons of God were fallen angels; they were the same fallen angels that Jude and Peter spoke about that are kept in chains of darkness reserved for judgment. They came to the daughters of Adam and from their union were born Nephilim, which consisted of human-demonic genetic material. The Nephilim (fallen ones) were known as gegenes (of the earth) in Greek. These were the famous men of the ancient world. The gegenes in the Greek traditions were hybrid creatures – half human and half god (demonic). We also saw that all of the ancient Jewish traditions believed the Nephilim to be hybrids – half human and half demonic.

The ancient Christians believed in like manner; the idea that the sons of God were the sons of Seth did not even come about until Augustine. We discovered that Augustine simply asserted that the sons of God were the sons of Seth but he in no way had any supporting evidence (or verses) to back up his claim. As such, he declared it to be true and since then Bible commentators have repeated his words without offering any more evidence than he did. We have shown that the sons of God were not the sons of Seth but were in fact fallen angels, and the daughters of Adam (men) were not the daughters of Cain, but were simply women or as the writer of Genesis already put, they were the descendants of Adam. Thus, the contrast is between direct creations of God, which the angels were (and the sons of Seth were not) and between female humans, which were procreations via Adam. With this backdrop do we read that God was grieved by the wickedness of man. Indeed, given that women were having offspring which were half demonic – how could God not be sorry that He had created man?

Without doubt we have seen that fallen angels mingled their seed (genetic information) with humans both before and after the days of Noah (more fallen angels did it again). It is this genetic mixing that makes God’s complete destruction of every man, woman and child in Noah’s day reasonable. Without question the Bible says that man’s thoughts were constantly wicked and the first four verses of Genesis 6 provide the answer to the question of how they became so wicked; the Nephilim, who had demonic fathers, were on the earth in those days!

It seems incredible, but considering that out of the billions of humans (see chapter five) on the earth only eight were saved out of it – a major reason for the flood seems to be that many of the human race had been tainted genetically. The Bible tells us that Noah was a just man (tsadik צַדִּ֛יק), perfect [tamim תָּמִ֥ים] in all his generations (Genesis 6:9), meaning that he was without genetic defect. Consider that of the eighty some times tamim is used in the Bible, it always refers to an animal without any physical blemish. Thus it would also explain why the Israelites were to destroy the people of the land, every man, woman and child – that is, they were all tainted because they were Nephilim . Whether or not all but Noah’s family were Nephilim is uncertain. However the strong implication is that many, perhaps a majority, were. When the Children of Israel saw the Nephilim they lost heart and did not trust that God could overcome the Nephilim.

Among the Nephilim that they had to fight was King Og of Bashan whom we have seen measured about 15 feet tall. He also weighed approximately 3100 lbs. and needed a minimum of about 22,000 calories just to get through each day. Judging from his stature, Canaan was indeed a land that devoured its inhabitants. Lastly, we looked for evidence of such enormous people and found that as recently as one to two hundred years ago, giant mummies, footprints and accounts all gave witness to the reality of such unnaturally enormous beings. With the thought in mind that the inhabitants of the land were Nephilim, we can understand why God commanded the Israelites to completely exterminate those seven nations. The genetic mingling of demonic and human could not be tolerated. It was not tolerated in the days of Noah and for that reason God commanded the extermination of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan. Everything was to reproduce according to its kind (Genesis 1:24) and the demons clearly broke this commandment. The book of Daniel prophesizes that the mingling of demons with humanity will happen once again and Jesus Himself stated that as the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man shall be (all hearing those words would have associated the destruction of the world with the Nephilim).

If the sons of God were mingling with the human race in Noah’s days then that means that the last days will be marked by a similar occurrence. God gave the human race 120 years until the flood He would bring to destroy the world. During that final time of 120 years until the flood the mingling continued (married and given in marriage) until the very last day when Noah entered the ark and God closed the door. If we are truly in the last days of time then we ought to see biblical proof that events similar to Noah’s will repeat. We ought to see the following:

  • Demons materializing physically in some manner
  • The taking of woman
  • Demonic-human hybrids

Do we see any of these things happening in our day? Predictably all of these are happening and these are what we will examine in the next section.

About Douglas


  1. Within the past year, I have seen and heard (and anyone can Google the following info) the ex-president Bill Clinton, speaking on a late night TV show, about “aliens” and how he is looking forward to meeting them. In about the same time frame, the Pope publicly stated that he is looking forward to “blessing” aliens when they arrive. And then Obama hired a Malaysian astrophysicist as second in command in UNOOSA, which is “the United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs”. You didn’t know that the UN had such an office ?? Hmmmmmmmmm. You can check it all out. IT’s true.
    But, when they speak of aliens, I do NOT believe that they are the “extraterrestial ” kind, but they are the “interdimentional” kind, or in other words, demons. And because these 3 highly placed individuals all make this mention in about the same 2-3 month time frame, I am expecting the earth will soon be witness to these evil beings very, very soon !!!!!
    The only hope for not being deceived by them (” that even the very elect might be deceived”) is a very, very close relationship with Jesus Christ. If you do not have that, ask Him for it NOW. “Ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you”…”ye have not because ye ask not” !!!!! They are coming, and so is He. You need to be ready prayed-up for both.
    Rev. Roy…..<

  2.  Doug from what I have read, I have a very similar understanding through scripture on the subject of Nephillim.

    Where I differ is my understanding of demons.  I see through scripture that demons seem to need habitation, a body/vessel.

    Cast out from the demoniac, they went into the pigs, etc.  My understanding of them is that they are the ghosts we see today.

    They need to inhabit someone or something, and walk the earth until they find a fit vessel.   My understanding is that they are

    the lost souls of the nephillim—there was no place for them to go
    after the flood etc, when the nephilim bodies died.  Jude tells us that

    the fallen angels who did this were cast into “everlastmg chains under 
    darkness until judgment”—but nothing is told of the offspring,

    who were innocent products of wicked unions albeit they had evil natures,and sinned in their lives with no provision for them. 

    I believe that  the mixing of DNA with human women is always by those
    who are part of the “principalities of the air, wickedness in the high
    places”–(fallen angels), rather than as you suggest , demons.   One
    thought I do have is that perhaps in these days–the cloning of people
    or messing with DNA (cows etc), and

    babies taken on UFOs—is making vessels for the spirits of deceased
    Nephilim (bodies for their spirits–ghosts) , as well as a futher

    mixing (sexually, or scientifically) with human women.     I also wonder
    about a gap of time after the church (Restrainer-HS) is taken

    up—-I wonder whether there will be a gap of years where wickedness
    builds up and oppression magnifies and the global caliphate is

    established—before the 7 years of tribulation leading to the Great
    tribulation when the AC launches fullon genecidal attack on the Jewish

    people culminating in the Coming of Christ who will sort it out and establish his 1000 yr physical earthly reign.

    So you have any comments about the subtle differences between our
    understanding of demons?  I am reading your book “Corrupting the

    Image” and am finding it a fascinating read.

    Wendy Jessen–Vancouver Island

    • Hi Wendy,

      I actually address this very issue in another post. I have reposted it here have included the link. Read it and let me know what you think.


      I have received a number of comments from readers pointing out to me that demons and fallen angels are not one and the same. I am open to the discussion but in general I feel that the supposed distinction that many are trying to make is not based on any careful exegesis of the Bible. Below is the series of conversations I had with a good brother on this topic. His comments are in blue.Doug, you are wrong concerning what Demons are –The Book of Enoch, The Book of Giants (both dead sea scrolls)and all the Early Church Fathers differentiated between Fallen Angels and Demons .The Greek word for Demon is dis-embodied Spirit. Fallen Angels can Shape Shift but your understanding is not accurate. The progeny of the Union between fallen angels and the daughters of men would produce a Hybrid entity and when the Giants died their Spirits became demons upon the Earth–The Word Nephilim is Different than Rephaim which translates the” dead” in the Old Testament. The Translations can read those who issued from the Nephilim versus those that are the children of the Nephilim– the “Rephaim” or Giants.Hmm – those are some good points. I am of course aware that that the church fathers thought of the demons as the spirits of the giants – it is possible. My only concern is that I don’t clearly see that in Scripture. What I like to do is to demonstrate how passages and words are used in Scripture were interpreted by the ancients. Here is the thing – Ps 106:36 speaks of the people sacrificing their children to demons which in Hebrew is sheddim – that translated into Greek is daimonion. Liddell and Scott Classical Greek define it as such:δαιμόνιον , τό , divine Power, Divinity, Hdt. 5.87 , E. Ba. 894 (lyr.), Isoc. 1.13 , Pl. R. 382e , etc.; τὸ δαιμόνιον ἄρ’ ἢ θεὸς ἢ θεοῦ ἔργον Arist. Rh. 1398a15 , cf. 1419a9 ; οἱ θεοὶ εἴσονται καὶ τὸ δ. D. 19.239 ; φοβεῖσθαι μή τι δ. πράγματ’ ἐλαύνῃ some fatality, Id. 9.54 ; τὰ τοῦ δ. the favours of forlune, Pl. Epin. 992d . II inferior divine being, μεταξὺ θεοῦ τε καὶ θνητοῦ Id. Smp. 202e ; καινὰ δ. εἰσφέρειν X. Mem. 1.1.2 , Pl. Ap. 24c , cf. Vett. Val. 67.5 , etc.; applied to the ‘genius’ of Socrates, X. Mem. 1.1.2 , Pl. Ap. 40a , Tht. 151a , Euthphr. 3b .2. evil spirit, δ. φαῦλα Chrysipp.Stoic. 2.338 , cf. LXX De. 32.17 , To. 3.8 , Ev.Matt. 7.22 , al., PMag.Lond. 1.46.120 (iv A. D.).The Hebrew word sheddim basically means: 1.  havoc, violence, destruction, devastation, ruina.  violence, havoc (as social sin)b.  devastation, ruinThis definition squares quite well with the meaning of Abaddon and Apollyon – destroyer.As for the relationship between the Nephilim and the Rephaim – I don’t think that you can make such a stark contrast between them – the data seem to suggest that they are different names for the same creatures. Here is a list I made up showing all of the biblical references to them – they look like the same creatures to me – Click here to see tableWould you agree that the Demons Jesus cast out desired to inhabit the Pigs –and that Jesus always spoke of Demons in his Teachings as seeking to re inhabit the House they left? Nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus speak about casting out Fallen Angels–Just as the Fathers of the Giants were a different order then the Giants having inserted themselves into the seed of woman so did a new and Bastardized entity come into being–Therefore the Giants would be denoted differently than their fathers–The Valley of the Rapha differentiates the placement of the specific tribes of Giants. Again, the word “Rephaim” are referred to as the dead –a term not used for Fallen Angels at all. Your point that the psalm 106:36 makes gives my argument more credibility–The Giants in their earthly form desired human flesh –as the statement in Numbers that the Land devours its inhabitants as in eats up–Therefore the appetite of dis-embodied spirits seek to satisfy their former incarnate lusts is noted by all reports worldwide of Giants being cannibals. Fallen Angels are the Principalities and Powers and spiritual wickedness in the Heavenly places until  the Fallen Angels become visible on the Earth due to being kicked out of the part of the heavens they now occupy along with their bound counterparts that are released from their imprisoned state as the Gates of Hell are opened.The First Six Days: Confronting the God-Plus-Evolution MythThanks for the response – I am open to the discussion, by the way…that demons are looking for a new home I agree. However, didn’t Satan himself possess Judas? The other thing to consider is that in Ezekiel 28 God said that He destroyed Satan and brought fire from within him.  I see a clue in that – namely that he lost something and I have to wonder if that something was his spiritual body in some sense. Thus it could be that the fallen angels have in some way lost their spiritual body that they were created with and now are “body-less” beings – just a thought.The word Rephaim actually means healers – though of course it is referring to the giants. These beings apparently are waiting for the coming of Satan in Isaiah 13.  I thought Tom Horn’s idea of the Nephilim as essentially being soul-less beings that were filled with other beings fascinating. Could it be that the production of the Nephilim created a body for the fallen angels to inhabit?As for the NT not speaking of fallen angels – that is a term that we have made up. The term doesn’t appear anywhere in Scripture. Thus, we are simply attempting to define what a demon is – they were not created as such but they began as angels (Rev 12) and then fell with Satan and became “fallen angels”.  We find the terms malakhim, watchers (Irin), benei Elohim, and sheddim used in the OT.  The first two seems to always point to “good” angels, the third to either good or bad and the fourth only to bad. Of course we find the term stars as well which is neutral. In the NT we don’t find “fallen angels” either. We find the terms angels (for good and bad), stars, and demons. The fathers of the giants were the sons of God who were angels, which were of course bad angels, hence fallen.I don’t consider the conversation over and I welcome all comments regarding the subject. However,  I would ask that people give solid biblical proof of their position.Blessingshttp://www.douglashamp.com/are-demons-the-same-as-fallen-angels/ 

  3. doesn’t  it say in mathew that angels do not reproduce?

  4. Demons are not biological entities; their nature is angelic. Therefore, the naive assumption that the demons deposited their “seed” into human females is completely without substance. Demons are, however, immensely powerful, and can manifest themselves in any material form they choose, including human. Therefore, the only possible explanantion is that, as humanity became more morally degenerate, their depraved sexual practices gave the fallen angels free access to the human seed which, given their expanded knowledge and abilities, they were able to manipulate to produce apparently “super-humans” What is absolutely central to any understanding of this subject is an understanding of “nature” as ordained by God. An angel is endowed by its creator with an angelic nature, and cannot. under any circumstances, function sexually as a human being.


    • Doug Riggs Pastor

      This line of rationalization of the clear exegesis of Gen. 6:1-4 w/ 2Pet. 2:4 w/ Jude 6-7 has been explicated by many since the work of G.H. Pember’s book “Earths Earliest Ages” was originallyreleased in 1876.

      “The Sons of God” in Genesis 6:2, 4
      (Appenix 23 of the Companion Bible)

      It is only by the Divine specific act of creation that any created being can be called “a son of God”. For that which is “born of flesh is flesh”. God is spirit, and that which is “born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6). Hence Adam is called a “son of God” in Luke 3:38. Those “in Christ” having “the new nature” which is by the direct creation of God (2 Cor. 5:17, Eph. 2:10) can be, and are called “sons of God” (John 1:13, Rom. 8:14-15, 1 John 3:1). (The word “offspring” in Acts 17:28 is quite different. It is g e n o ς (genos), which means merely kin or kind, our genus as being originated by God.)
      This is why angels are called “sons of God” in every other place where the expression is used in the Old Testament (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, Psa. 29:1, 89:6, Dan. 3:25 (no article)). We have no authority or right to take the expression in Gen. 6:2, 4 in any other sense. Moreover, in Gen. 6:2 the Septuagint renders it “angels”.
      Angels are called “spirits” (Psa. 104:4, Heb. 1:7, 14), for spirits are created by God.
      That there was a fall of the angels is certain from Jude 6.
      The nature of their fall is clearly stated in the same verse. They left their own o i k h t h r i o n (oiktērēion). This word occurs only in 2 Cor. 5:2 and Jude 6, where it is used of the spiritual (or resurrection) body.
      The nature if their sin is stated to be “in like manner” to that of the subsequent sins of Sodom and Gomorrha, Jude 7.
      The time of their fall is given as having taken place “in the days of Noah” (1 Pet. 3:20, 2 Pet. 2:4-5), though there may have been a prior fall which caused the end of “the world that then was” (Gen. 1:1, 2, 2 Pet. 3:6).
      For this sin they are “reserved unto judgement”, 2 Pet. 2:4, and are “in prison”, 1 Pet. 3:19.
      Their progeny, called nephilim (translated “giants”), were monsters of iniquity; and, being superhuman in size and character, had to be destroyed. This was the one and only object of the Flood.
      Only Noah and his family had preserved their pedigree pure from Adam (Gen. 6:9). All the rest had become “corrupt” (shāchath) destroyed [as Adamites]. The only remedy was to destroy it (de facto), as it had become destroyed (de jure). (It is the same word in v. 17 as in vv. 11, 12.) See further under Ap. 25 on the Nephīlīm.
      This irruption of fallen angels was Satan’s first attempt to prevent the coming of the Seed of the of the woman foretold in Gen. 3:15. If this could be accomplished, God’s Word would have failed, and his own doom would be averted.
      As soon as it was made known that the Seed of the woman was to come through Abraham, there must have been another irruption, as recorded in Gen. 6:4, “and also after that” (i.e. after the days of Noah, more than 500 years after the first irruption). The aim of the enemy was to occupy Canaan in advance of Abraham, and so to contest its occupation by his seed. For, when Abraham entered Canaan, we read (Gen. 12:6) “the Canaanite was then (i.e. already) in the land.”
      In the same chapter (Gen. 12:10-20) we see Satan’s next attempt to interfere with Abraham’s seed, and frustrate the purpose of God that it should be in “Isaac”. This attempt was repeated in 20:1-18.
      This great conflict may be seen throughout the Bible, and it forms a great and important subject of Biblical study. In each case the human instrument had his own personal interest to serve, while Satan had his own great object in view. Hence God had, in each case, to interfere and avert the evil and the danger, of which His servants and people were wholly ignorant. The following assaults of the great Enemy stand out prominently:-
      The destruction of the chosen family by famine, Gen. 50:20.
      The destruction of the male line in Israel, Ex. 1:10, 15, &c. Cp. Ex. 2:5, Heb. 11:23.
      After David’s line was singled out (2 Sam. 7), that was the next selected for assault. Satan’s first assault was in the union of Jehoram and Athaliah by Jehoshaphat, notwithstanding 2 Chron. 17:1. Jehoram killed off all his brothers (2 Chron. 21:4).
      The Arabians slew all his children, except Ahaziah (2 Chron. 21:17, 22:1).
      When Ahaziah died, Athalia killed “all the seed royal” (2 Chron. 22:10). The babe Joash alone was rescued; and, for six years, the faithfulness of Yahoveh’s word was at stake (2 Chron. 23:3).
      Hezekiah was childless, when a double assault was made by the King of Assyria and the King of Terrors (Isa. 36:1, 38:1). God’s faithfulness was appealed to and relied on (Psa. 136).
      In Captivity, Haman was used to attempt the destruction of the whole nation (Est. 3:6, 12, 13. Cp. 6:1).
      Joseph’s fear was worked on (Matt. 1:18-20). Notwithstanding the fact that he was “a just man”, and kept the Law, he did not wish to have Mary stoned to death (Deut. 24:1); hence Joseph determined to divorce her. But God intervened: “Fear not”.
      Herod sought the young Child’s life (Matt. 2).
      At the Temptation, “Cast Thyself down” was Satan’s temptation.
      At Nazareth, again (Luke 4), there was another attempt to cast Him down and destroy Him.
      The two storms on the Lake were other attempts.
      At length the cross was reached, and the sepulchre closed; the watch set; and the stone sealed. But “God raised Him from the dead.” And now, like another Joash, He is seated and expecting (Heb. 10:12, 13), hidden in the house of God on high; and the members of “the one body” are hidden there “in Him” (Col. 3:1-3), like another Jehoshaba; and going forth to witness of His coming, like another Jehoiada (2 Chron. 23:3).
      The irruption of “the fallen angels” (“sons of God”) was the first attempt; and was directed against the whole human race.
      When Abraham was called, then he and his seed were attacked.
      When David was enthroned, then the royal line was assailed.
      And when “the Seed of the woman” Himself came, then the storm burst upon Him.

      The NEPHILIM, or “Giants” of Genesis 6 &c.

      The progeny of the fallen angels with the daughters of Adam are called in Genesis 6, Nephilim, which means fallen ones (from naphal, to fall). What these beings were can be gathered only from Scripture. They were evidently great in size, as well as in wickedness. They were superhuman, abnormal beings; and their destruction was necessary for the preservation of the human race and for the faithfulness of Yahoveh’s Word (Gen 3:15).

      This is why the flood was brought “upon the world of the ungodly” (2 Pet 2:5) as prophesied by Enoch (Jude 14).

      But we read of the Nephilim again in Numbers 13:33: “there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, which come of the Nephilim”. How, it may be asked, could this be, if they were all destroyed in the flood? The answer is contained in Gen. 6:4, where we read: “There were Nephilim in the earth in the earth in those days (i.e. in the days of Noah); and also AFTER THAT, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of Adam, and they bare children unto them, the same became [the] mighty men (Heb. gibbor, the heroes) which were of old, men of renown” (lit. men of the name, i.e. who got a name and were renown for their ungodliness).

      So that “after that”, i.e. after the flood, there was a second irruption of these fallen angels, evidently smaller in number and more limited in area, for they were for the most part confined to Canaan, and were in fact known as “the nations of Canaan”. It was for the destruction of these, that the sword of Israel was necessary, as the flood had been before.

      As to the date of this second irruption, it was evidently soon after it became known that the seed was to come through Abraham; for when he came out from Haran (Gen. 12:60 and entered Canaan, the significant fact is stated: “The Cananite was then (i.e. already) in the land”. And in Gen. 14:5 they were already known as “Rephaim” and “Emim”, and had established themselves at Ashteroth Karnaim and Shaveh Kiriathaim.

      In ch. 15:18-24 they are enumerated and named among the Canaanite peoples; “Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, and the Amorites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites” (Gen. 15:19-21; cp. Ex. 3:8, 17; 23:23; Deut. 7; 20:17; Josh. 12:8).

      These were to be cut off, and driven out, and utterly destroyed (Deut. 20:17; Josh. 3:10). But Israel failed in this (Josh. 13:13; 15:63; 16:10; 17:18; Judg. 1:19-20, 28-36; 2:1-5; 3:1-7); and we know not how many got away to other countries to escape the general destruction. If this were recognized it would go far to solve many problems connected with Anthropology.

      As to their other names, they were called Anakim, from one Anak which came of the Nephilim (Num. 13:23), and Rephaim, from Rapha, another notable one among them.

      From Deut. 2:10, they were known by some as Emim, and Horim, and Zamzummim (v. 20-21) and Avim, &c.

      As Rephaim they were well known, and are often mentioned: but, unfortunately, instead of this, their proper name, being preserved, it is variously translated as “dead”, “deceased”, or “giants”. These Rephaim are to have no resurrection. This fact is stated in Isa. 26:14 (where the proper name is rendered “deceased”, and v. 19, where it is rendered “the dead”).
      It is rendered “deceased” in Isa. 26:14.

      It is retained as a proper name “Rephaim” ten times (two being in the margin). Gen. 14:5; 15:20; Josh. 12:15 (marg.). 2 Sam 5:18, 22; 23:13; 1 Chron. 11:15; 14:9; 20:4 (marg.). Isa. 17:5.

      In all other places it is rendered “giants”, Gen. 6:4, Num. 13:33;, where it is Nephilim; and Job 16:14, where it is gibbor.

      By reading all these passages the Bible student may know all that can be known about these beings.

      It is certain that the second irruption took place before Gen. 14, for there the Rephaim were mixed up with five nations or people, which included Sodom and Gomorrha, and were defeated by the four kings under Chedorlaomer. Their principal locality was evidently “Ashtaroth Karnaim”; while the Emim were in the plain of Kiriathaim (Gen. 14:5).

      Anak was a noted descendent of the Nephilim; and Rapha was another, giving their names respectively to different clans. Anak’s father was Arba, the original builder of Hebron (Gen. 35:27, Josh. 15:13; 21:11); and this Palestine branch of the Anakim was not called Arbahim after him, but Anakim after Anak. They were great, mighty, and tall (Deut 2:10-11, 21-23; 9:2), evidently inspiring the ten spies with great fear (Num. 13:33). Og king of Bashan is described in Deut. 3:11.

      Their strength is seen in “the giant cities of Bashan” today; and we know not how far they may have been utilized by Egypt in the construction of buildings, which is still an unsolved problem.

      Arba was rebuilt by the Khabiri or confederates seven years before Zoan was built by the Egyptian Pharaohs of the nineteenth dynasty. See note on Num. 13:22 (if you have a Companion Bible).

      If these Nephilim, and their branch of Rephaim, were associated with Egypt, we have an explanation of the problem which has for ages perplexed all engineers, as to how those huge stones and monuments were brought together. Why not in Egypt as well as in “the giant cities of Bashan” which exist, as such, to this day?

      Moreover, we have in these mighty men, the “men of renown”, the explanation of the origin of the Greek mythology. That mythology was no mere invention of the human brain, but it grew out of the traditions, and memories, and legends of the doings of that mighty race of beings; and was gradually evolved out of the “heroes’ of Gen. 6:4. The fact that they were supernatural in their origin formed an easy step to their being regarded as the demigods of the Greeks.

      Thus the Babylonian “Creation Tablets”, the Egyptian “Book of the dead”, the Greek mythology, and heathen Cosmogonies, which by some are set on an equality with Scripture, or by others adduced in support of it, are all the corruption and perversion of primitive truths, distorted in proportion as their origin was forgotten, and their memories faded away.

    Mr. hamp, you are spot on. this was an excellent presentation. I know that God has called a certain few to present the truth before the church. there is a deception that is going to take place very, very soon. my fear is that the church body is ignorant of these facts and soon will be faced by the physical manifestations of the fallen angels. Very few are prepared in Spiritual Warfare to stand in the gap and prevail. Oh my heart cries out to the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of His children to see what is coming upon the earth and prepare to speak against the lie, the great deception. the damnable proclamation these fallen ones will make to the world that they are the creators of our species and are here to save us and the earth from ourselves. keep pressing on and follow the gentle leading of Christs Spirit. peace to you my Brother.

    • Iam impressed by your thoughts and concern on this critical issue.
      Just like you I have been laboring for years now on the possibility that we could be having individuals walking on the face of the earth in the form of human beings-having been born of women-although they themselves know too well that they are half human and half demon.

      It is indeed very scaring.Now that this topic has come up in the open,let me share a certain experience I had the other day in the spirit world.
      In my many spiritual warfare encounters, recently I was referred to a certain man I know in the physical world and I was told clearly and consciously that he was fathered by a snake.
      Needless to say, this shocked me very much and I had to keep it to myself for some time.

      Well,the so called nephilim could already be here among us .It could be that satan had to make sure that they do not grow to giant size- this is to avoid our suspicion.
      May God help us.K.Kungu:lennykungu@yahoo.com

  6. I believe that the “Watchers” were the teachers of the ‘forbiden sciences.’ The ones that manipulated and tweaked DNA and that is how, in fact, the abominations known as Nephilim(the Giants) came into existence. They were the product of the false creator god,(Satan) and were created to corrupt and pollute the seedline of mankind. Satan knew from the prophesy spoken over him in (Gen.3:15) that Jesus was to be born to “crush his head,” so, he undertook a plan to have the Giants impregnate the women so there could be no pure blood and hence mankind would be unclean and no Savior could be born from an impure blood line.

    The Nephilim(Giants) taking the “daughters of men” and interbreeding with them resulted in the birth of the “Mighty Men of Renown” who were of the Nephilim line, but smaller. They were the half man/half animal creatures that is the basis for the Pantheon of Greek and Roman gods that were as evil as the Nephilim and continued carrying out Satan’s agenda of the destruction of mankind. Jesus aslways said He is the ‘Son of Man-Kind.’ These creations,both nephilim and the mighty men of renown were of a totally different ‘kind.’ Since the Giants(nephilim) had both plant and animal DNA, and since ground or plant life is often referred to as humus,they hence became known as ‘human-kind.’

    Bottom line is they were never sanctioned by the Most High Creator God and are, as the original Hebrew language explains, “abominations, abortions and of a mixed kind.” Nephilim was the actual beginning of trans-genetics and as Tom and Nita have shared with us, the Transhumanists are today’s version of Satan’s ‘Watchers.’

  7. Very good article. I also believe that the dinosaurs were the direct result of genetic tampering by the pre-flood/antediluvian corrupted human beings. In relation to the present day corruption maybe Tom Horn is very much on track about Post Modern man.

  8. Great article ! Could it also be possible that in the pre deluge age that humans too were much taller than today? It would make it a little easier to understand how the decended watchers were able to have sex with human women.

    • May it was not actual sex as we know it but akin to artificial insemination. Could be also that the watchers were same size as regular humans but the offspring had an activated gene that prompted the immense growth.
