Fallen Angels and Demons

Appendix 1: Fallen Angels and Demons 

Unclean and evil spirits, demons and fallen angels are in reality all the same kind of being. The term “fallen angel” does not exist in the Bible; it’s a term that we use to make a distinction between God’s holy and good angels and those rebellious angels that serve Satan.ccliv Angel just means “messenger”. The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament explains the meaning of “demon”: 

daímōn as a term for gods and divine powers. Various senses may be noted in this field: a. “god,” b. “lesser deity,” c. “unknown superhuman factor,” d. “what overtakes us,” e.g., death, or good or evil fortune, e. “protective deity.”cclv 

We have accounts of good angels, and we also see references to bad angels as evidenced in Revelation: “Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought” (Rev 12:7). We refer to Satan’s angels as fallen angels.  

Throughout the Bible and ancient literature, we see that fallen angels are demons who masqueraded as gods in order to communicate with and control humans. When Paul interacted with “certain Epicurean and Stoic philosophers … some said … ‘He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods [δαιμονιων daimonion],’ because he preached to them Jesus and the resurrection” (Acts 17:18). The philosophers thought Paul was speaking to them about other gods similar to Zeus or Apollo, yet the Greek word here for “gods” is daimonion—demons. 

Moses used very similar language in his farewell address:  

They sacrificed to demons, not to God, To gods they did not know (Deut 32:17). They served their idols, Which became a snare to them. They even sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons [lasheddim לַשֵּֽׁדִים – tois daimonios τοις δαιμονιοις] (Ps 106:36–37). 

BDAG explains how demon (δαιμον) “refers in general to powerful entities … After Homer’s time, the adjective, δαιμόνιος means anything ‘sent from heaven’ or ‘that which is divine’.”cclvi Based on the literature, demons could be good or bad. Philo in his writings On the Giants says: 

And when the angels of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful, they took unto themselves wives of all of them whom they chose. Those beings, whom other philosophers call demons, Moses usually calls angels (Emphasis mine).cclvii 

According to Philo, demons and angels are really one and the same. When we talk about angels, demons and the so-called gods, we are talking about the same kind of entities. The Bridgeway Dictionary confirms “rebellious, or fallen angels are variously known as demons, evil spirits, spiritual hosts of wickedness, principalities, powers, rulers, authorities, evil spiritual forces, cosmic powers of evil, and angels of the devil.”cclviii These are all part of the general class of messenger (angels) that God spoke into existence, according to Psalm 148:2, 5.  

The etymology of the word demon “likely stems from the root δαιω,’to divide (destinies)’. Thus, the word could designate one’s ‘fate’ or ‘destiny’, or the spirit controlling one’s fate.” cclix This completely concurs with Enlil who was said to be “the one that decides the fate,”cclx and was the holder of the Tablet of Destinies. In Psalm 95:5, the Septuagint interprets elilim (idols, and related to Enlil) as demons:  

The national deities of other peoples, said to be idols ‘elilim’ in Hebrew, become “demons” (“All the gods of the nations are demons”); in LXX Deut 32: 17, the foreign divinities whom Israel worshipped, properly described in the Hebrew text as šedim (tutelary spirit) are again called “demons” (”They sacrificed to demons and not to God”; cf. LXX Ps 105:37; Bar. 4:7).cclxi 

We recall that elilim is related to the Akkadian word, Illil, and Sumerian Enlil, Lord Wind. Thus, Scripture is telling us that idols are plural “Enlils”, and we know Enlil is Satan, who is a fallen angel. The Theological Workbook of the Old Testament explains that the “Hebrew shēd is to be connected with the Babylonian word shêdu, a demon either good or evil. In pagan religions the line between gods and demons is not a constant one.”cclxii This now explains why we see demons referred to in the New Testament as “unclean spirits” to distinguish between the angels who “kept their first estate” and those who rebelled.  

We see the use of sheddim as gods where God told Elijah to chastise the king of Samaria when he sought out the aid of “Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron” (2 Kgs 1:3) who, incidentally, was known as a Rephaim. “Baal Zebub … 2 Kgs 1 is the healing deity … “Prince, lord of the underworld” in Ugaritic texts (zbl b‘l arș) refers to Baal as a chthonic healer godcclxiii This same (false) god Beelzebub is specifically called “the ruler of the demons” (Matt 12:24). Jesus identifies him as none other than Satan (Matt 12:26).  

In LXX Isa 65: II daimon renders the Hebrew name of the pagan god of Fortune (- Gad), where the Israelites are said to have been “preparing a table for the demon”. This conception of table fellowship with pagan gods who are in reality demons carries over into the New Testament: Paul warns the Corinthian Church that they may not eat sacrificial meals in pagan temples, for “that which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons”, meaning, for Corinth, the Greek gods Asclepios, Sarapis, and especially Demeter. cclxiv 

There is, therefore, no distinction between fallen angels, demons and unclean spirits. They are simply different titles which describe the same general class of being. We of course acknowledge that there are subclasses of beings within this general category, such as cherubim.  

Furthermore, any supposed distinction between fallen angels and demons, such as the claim that they are the spirits of the deceased Nephilim, is not supported by the biblical, linguistic and ancient textual evidence. If an entire race of beings had been born utterly wicked, through no fault or choice of their own, then they would necessarily be consigned to eternal damnation simply for being born.cclxv However, God has created all of his sentient beings with free-will and self-determination (See Appendix 2 Angels Freewill).  

Why Did Fallen Angels Need a Nephilim Solution?

Chapter 6: Fallen Angels Crave a Habitat & Chapter 7: The Nephilim Solution from Corrupting the Image 2

Satan and the fallen losing their original glorious-fiery covering, may have driven their efforts to make Nephilim. We know that God covers Himself with light as with a garment (Ps 104:2). God took the fire out the midst (from inside) of his anointed cherub (who was fiery per Ezek 1:13). God brought fire out from the midst (from inside) of Satan, which means he lost his source of power and connection to God and the glory that covered him.

“You defiled your sanctuaries By the multitude of your iniquities, By the iniquity of your slandering; Therefore I brought fire from your midst, it devoured you [וָֽאוֹצִא־ אֵ֤שׁ מִתּֽוֹכְךָ֙ הִ֣יא אֲכָלַ֔תְךָ vaotzi esh mitochecha hi achalatcha] (Ezek 28:18).

Satan and the fallen angels have been left without their original covering, leaving them spiritually naked and with an incredible craving to be covered. The fallen ones’ condition is analogous to Adam and Eve being left naked and possibly experiencing hunger for the first time. (See Appendix 1 Demons).

Jesus gives us some insights into the barren and restless feeling a demon experiences when cast out and how he desires to return to the body he possessed:

“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. “Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation” (Matt 12:43–45).

Apparently, there is great discomfort in being uncovered and not inhabiting a living being. Separated from an earthly body, the demon goes “through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.” Overcome with this gnawing distress, the demon decides it is better to go back to his “house” and possess it once more. We find the same root οἰκητήριον, meaning “habitation” used to speak of the angels that did not keep their “abode / habitation” in Jude 1:6. Paul gives us more insight on the idea of a spirit needing a habitation:

For we know that if our earthly house [οικια], this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation [οἰκητήριον] which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked (2 Cor 5:1–3).

Paul compares not having a body (just a soul) to being naked. This is interesting in light of the souls under the altar in Rev 6 of whom we are told, “A white robe was given to each of them” (Rev 6:11). Because they were comforted with a robe, we infer that they were “naked” before. They were in the presence of God, and yet being without a body was a lesser experience than having a body. Right now we occupy “tents”, but in the age to come we will have a new, heavenly habitation like the angels (Luke 20:36).

The Demoniac

Though Satan must still have some kind of body, it is not the habitation of glory and splendor that it once was. His body must have lost not only beauty, but also ability, which we infer from the fact that Satan is ironically looking to transfer his power, throne and great authority to a human. The one who wanted all to serve him must rely upon humans, whom he perceives to be lowly and inferior, to succeed. We also glean this from the encounter with the demoniac.

And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me.” For He said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” Then He asked him, “What is your name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” Also he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country. Now a large herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains. So all the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us to the swine, that we may enter them.” And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea (Mark 5:2–13).

There are several important aspects to consider:

  1. The man had super-human strength to even break chains due to the demons possessing him.
  2. He lived among the tombs and cried out.
  3. He cut himself with stones. Blood is generally released when we cut ourselves. The demons may have feasted on the letting of blood.
  4. When Jesus showed up, the demons recognized one stronger than themselves.
  5. The demons begged to not leave the country.
  6. They preferred to enter (same word as possess) pigs rather than leave the country.

Satan Entered Judas

Short of having an adequate body to inhabit, Satan has had to work through a willing agent. We see this clearly in the Gospels where Satan possessed Judas to carry out his machinations.

Then Satan entered Judas, surnamed Iscariot … (Luke 22:3). So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them (Luke 22:4).

Because only Satan entered, Judas was able to carry on conversations and behave in quite a normal manner, unlike the demoniac who was filled with a legion (4,000-6,000) of demons. Yet like the demoniac, Judas must have gained significantly more strength, a keener faculty of mind, and a sense of invincibility. Satan likely possessed Judas because the task before him: destroying the One prophesied to stomp on his head, which was both important and personal! That was probably Satan’s version of: “If you want a job done right, you do it yourself.” Satan possessed Judas a second time. “Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him (John 13:27). We know that Judas killed himself after betraying Jesus (Acts 1:18) in the valley of Hinnom. Incidentally, the final battle will take place in this vicinity.

It must have been a bother to Satan that just when he found a willing agent whom he could possess, the agent either got cold feet or died. Alexander the Great may also have been one of Satan’s chosen earthly representatives who also died prematurely. Robin Lane Fox, Traveling Heroes in the Epic Age of Homer, comments on Alexander as the son of Zeus (who was also Satan):

“‘Zeus’, Alexander was later thought to have said, ‘is the common father of men, but he makes the best peculiarly his own’; like many Roman emperors after him, Alexander was coming to believe that he was protected by a god as his own divine ‘companion’… as son of god, a belief which fitted convincingly with his own Homeric outlook, in whose favorite Iliad sons of Zeus still fought and died beneath their heavenly father’s eye”[1]

Though Alexander conquered the world and may indeed have had Satan (Zeus) as his divine companion, he still died at the young age of 33. If Satan had intended to use Alexander for establishing his empire, his plan was foiled by illness.

Hence, Satan was frequently in need of a new partner. These partners were unreliable, so Satan decided that it would be far better to have his own vessel in which he could incarnate and interact in this world. He would have complete, unbridled control.

Demons Hunger for Blood

In addition to being spiritually naked and craving a physical habitation, Satan and his fallen have a power problem; they were unplugged from the power source and have been running on “batteries” ever since. They need to devour something to “recharge their batteries”, but not physical things; thus, they were left with a sizeable problem: they had been stripped of their beauty and disconnected from the source of life, leaving them weak and hungry. Therefore, they have an insatiable craving to consume as stated by Peter: “The devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet 5:8).

Let us first consider how we recharge our human batteries. Adam and Eve lost their connection to God, the source of power, yet man can simply take of the produce of the adamáh: vegetables, fruit, grains, and even animals to recharge our “batteries” until, of course, physical death overtakes us.

But what can Satan and his angels consume to placate the ravenous void[2] inside them? They are not made of dirt; they are spirit beings. They therefore need to consume something of a spiritual nature—That something is what God said not to eat: blood.

”For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, ‘No one among you shall eat blood, nor shall any stranger who dwells among you eat blood’” (Lev 17:12).

The blood of a creature is more than merely hemoglobin; it has a spiritual capacity. The animal subject of a sacrifice (korban [קרבּן]) is the object which permits the worshipper to come near​ to God.

“‘When any one of you brings [brings near יַקְרִ֥יב] an offering [קָרְבָּ֖ן korban] to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of the livestock–of the herd and of the flock (Lev 1:2).

Atonement is a Covering or Batteries “R” Us

Satan has twisted the mechanism God established to temporarily connect with man; God wants to be with us, but with the state of our current bodies, his fiery presence does not allow us to be face to face. Therefore, the blood of the sacrifice is able to make atonement [כּפר kafar] (a covering) so the worshipper can come near God. Without a “covering”, we cannot approach God; the blood makes atonement. 

However, atonement is not a moral issue, since even the altar is something for which atonement was needed.

“And you shall offer a bull every day as a sin offering for atonement. You shall cleanse the altar when you make atonement (Kafar) “Seven days you shall make atonement (Kafar) for the altar and sanctify it (Exod 29:37).

The altar never did anything wrong. It was morally perfect and unblemished, yet it needed to be atoned for. This shows that “covering” is the true underlying meaning. Yet why would an altar need a covering? Simple, because it would come in contact with God Almighty, a consuming fire. We have seen that Mt. Sinai was on fire when God came down. Therefore, the altar would need a covering so it would not burn and be consumed.

Then he poured the blood at the base of the altar, thereby sanctifying it as a means to make atonement (Kafar) with it (Lev 8:15; See also Lev 16:18)​.

The priest would then take the blood of that animal and sprinkle it to cover the worshipers so they could safely be in proximity to God. It is important to note: “It is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins (Heb 10:4). However, the purpose was not to take away the people’s sins, but to provide a covering.

An illustration is found in the life of David Vetter, better known as the Boy in the Bubble, whose immune system was so weak he could not have physical contact with the outside world or even with his parents. As seen in Figure 20 (next page), his plastic bubble habitation provided a covering to protect him from the world. It did not take away his sickness, but it did allow him to be close to his parents. So too, the atonement by the blood of an animal provided a covering until a future date when we will get our new bodies which can once again endure God’s fiery presence.

David Vetter, The Boy in the Bubble.

Therefore, Satan’s food is the life force, the blood; in other words, he feeds on us. People that have gone deep into Satanism talk about the energy the demons receive from the blood of their victims. Thus, with every human sacrifice, every abortion, every war, and every murder, Satan and his kin are recharging their batteries. The more innocent the blood, the more energy is derived. We see the sacrifice of innocent children in Psalm 106 and Ezekiel 16 and many other passages:

They served their idols, Which became a snare to them.They even sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons,And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood(Ps 106:36–38).

… and with all your abominable idols, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them(Ezek 16:36).

This principle was brought out vividly in the 1999 dystopian movie, “The Matrix”, in which machines have enslaved mankind and are using the energy extracted from their bodies to power themselves. The people are the batteries that power the machines. In order to derive the most power from their human batteries, the machines had to create a deceptive Matrix, a virtual (computerized) dream world in which everyone believed they were living out real lives. In a similar fashion, Satan must deceive the entire world (Rev 12:9) and entice us to lust. He has offered us heaven on earth, like a carrot dangled in front of a donkey, as above so below, in order to recharge his batteries and maintain control of the world.

The Nephilim Solution

After the Fall, Satan and those who joined him lost their power and fiery covering and were trapped behind the veil, thereby limiting their influence in the realm of men. To combat this limitation, Satan enacted a plan: He would create human-angel hybrids which would provide them their very own biological suits for their embodiment and incarnation, to be the earthly habitations in which their spirits could dwell and rest without the need to share with fickle humans. It would be the best of both worlds—all the power, intelligence and immortality of angels with a biological “tent” for their spirits to inhabit, making them gods in the flesh. The bodies would be created as human-angel hybrids, but the bodies would be void of a spirit and could therefore be inhabited by a fallen angel.

Of course, part of Satan’s genius has been that he gets others to do his dirty work. He would seduce the sons of God to mate with women and when they got caught, they would take the hit. We know that God had entrusted the angels with earth-based jobs from our discussion of Satan being stationed in the Garden of Eden in chapter 4. There you recall that that he “defiled his sanctuaries” (Ezek 28:18) which means that he was not faithful with the sacred space God had placed in his hands. We catch a few glimpses of the assignment angels had from Deuteronomy and Daniel.

When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided up humankind, he set the boundaries of the peoples, according to the number of the heavenly assembly (Deut 32:8 NET).

There is a Qumran fragment of this text that reads: According to the “sons of God.” The Septuagint reads ἀγγέλων θεού (angelōn theou, “angels of God”), presupposing בְּנֵי אֵל (benei el) or בְּנֵי אֵלִים (benei elim).[3] The idea of angels being over nations is clearly established in Daniel 10.  We see an angel who was bringing Daniel a prophecy was opposed and delayed by the prince of the kingdom of Persia, and also that Daniel would have to go and do battle with the prince of Greece, both of whom were fallen angels over their territories. (See Appendix 1 Demons).

Not Yet Fallen

While we know ultimately from Revelation 12 that one-third of the angels followed Satan, we do not know how many followed him right out of the gate. What we do know is that the “sons of God” did something so evil in the days of Noah that God would eventually send a flood to erase it all. It is entirely possible that many of the angels who followed Satan chose that path in the time around and before the Flood.

Genesis 6 only tells us what they did, not whether they were bad before this action.

When men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (Gen 6:1–4).

Philo, an Alexandrian Jewish philosopher and contemporary of Jesus, unequivocally confirms the “giants were sprung from a combined procreation of two natures, namely, from angels and mortal women.”[4] There are clues that suggest these angels had not yet committed iniquity; hence they were not yet fallen.

Peter gives his interpretation of what happened in Genesis 6. He says, “The spirits in prison (1 Pet 3:19), who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah” (1 Pet 3:20). These spirits were disobedient in the days of Noah when they procreated with women, which landed them in prison. In Peter’s second epistle, he elaborates on the event:

“For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell [tartarosas] and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment, and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah … [and] turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, … and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment, especially those who indulge their fleshly desires and who despise authority” (2 Pet 2:4–10 NET).

Notice that he speaks of the angels who were disobedient and sinned in the days of Noah. From this, we infer that they had not sinned previously, meaning they were, up until that moment, on God’s team. Jude gives a similar interpretation; and based on the context, it sounds like the angels had not yet joined Satan’s team.

For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe (Jude 1:4–5) (Emphasis mine).

Jude’s point here is that certain men had the opportunity to come to God and to enjoy his goodness and blessings; but instead, they took advantage of his grace and mercy and turned to sexual deviancy. Jude then immediately turns to discuss the angels from Noah’s day because they did the same thing.

And the angels who did not keep their proper domain but left their own abode [οἰκητήριον], He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day, as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:6–7).

This shift strongly implies that these angels had not converted to Satan’s team beforehand. That is, these particular angels who mated with women were not previously in league with Satan; Mating with women was their inauguration into his kingdom. Referring to the angels who heeded the temptation, the book of Jude explains how they “did not keep within their proper domain [arkhen]” (Jude 1:5a). That means they did not remain in the spiritual realm where they were authorized to be, “but abandoned their own place of residence [oiketerion]” (Jude 1:5). We considered the word oiketerion in a previous chapter and saw it referred to a spiritual body. We believers desire to put off our “tent” (our earthly bodies) and be clothed with our “oiketerion” (our “spiritual” bodies) (2 Cor 5:2).

When the angels came down to take the women, they quite likely were still good angels. Yes, they had evil plans in their hearts—but at that moment, they had not actualized their scheme.

It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamored of them, saying to each other, Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children (1 Enoch 7:1-2)(Emphasis Mine).

Above in bold it reads, “angel, the sons of heaven,” but in an Aramaic text of 1 Enoch, the same passage reads: “Watchers,”[5] which is significant because the only place Watchers (עִירִין֙ irin) is used in Scripture is in Daniel 4:17, where Nebuchadnezzar has a dream and the Watchers (holy ones) tell him that he will be judged. The Watchers in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream are clearly on God’s team. They are called “holy ones” and they intend for him to know that the Most High, the God of Daniel, rules men. Thus, in Enoch, the simplest reading is that watchers / angels / sons of heaven were not yet on Satan’s team, but were in the process of changing sides.

Good Angels Can Manifest

By persuading angels who are still on God’s team to procreate, Satan solved a logistics problem. Fallen angels appear to be limited in their ability to freely enter this realm, whereas the good angels can come and go at will. (See Appendix 2 Angel Freewill).

For example, in Genesis 18, God and two angels showed up at Abraham’s door, hence they were definitely good angels. After a while, the angels “turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the LORD” (Gen 18:22). When they arrive in Sodom, the men of the city surrounded Lot’s house and demanded to have sexual relations with them! (Gen 19:5). Thus, the good angels were able to come into the physical domain; they had bodies and the potential on a physical level to defile themselves, (not that they were in any way tempted). We are even told to entertain strangers as we might be entertaining angels unwittingly (Heb 13:2), which implies the good angels can manifest physically, at will.

In Scripture, we never see fallen angels, on the other hand, materialize physically in our realm. Their lack of physical manifestation in this realm appears to be due to their power problem; they need blood to energize themselves. When they have enough blood offered, like with an occultic event or séance, they seem to be more easily able to manifest into this realm. Thus, uncorrupted angels seem to have no limitations in this regard, whereas fallen angels can only come in at great expense. (See Appendix 1 Demons.)

Through slander of God’s good name, Satan undoubtedly could have used his unparalleled wisdom to turn the angels from serving God and man, to serving themselves. He may have caused good angels to defect using the model of Absalom, King David’s son, who would sit in the city gate and tell the people of Israel how he would bring justice if he were the judge and so, he turned the hearts of the people against King David (See 2 Sam 15:2–6).

In a similar fashion, Satan may have seduced the angels with words like: “God is the only one worthy of your service and Adam is not. If serving God requires you to serve Adam, who is made of dirt, do you truly want to serve God?” Perhaps he showed them how he had successfully rebelled against God’s “biased” kingdom and then enticed them with promises of how they would no longer need to serve man; they could instead become the masters, and man would become their servants! They would be worshipped as gods if they would mate with women and would create a race in their own image. We know Satan was the one who inspired this dastardly action from a text that was found on Mt. Hermon which we will examine in the next chapter.

The Soul – Preexistent, Created or Transmitted?

We need to further explore the idea of the abode oiketerion (spiritual body) which the angels abandoned. Those “angels who did not keep their proper domain but left their own abode [οἰκητήριον],” are guilty of doing two things: not keeping their domain, their place of authority, and leaving (abandoning) their proper spiritual body. The text implies that by procreating with women they left their own spirit-based body. If they left their own bodies, then where did they go? The implication is they transferred their essence (DNA information code) into bodies of the Nephilim. To get our minds around this, we need to consider the various models of the origin of the soul. Where does the soul of a newborn baby come from? Is it preexisting in heaven? Does God create it at the moment of conception? Or is it transmitted from the parents? We will examine each model and consider this question.

The preexistence model of the soul from the Platonic school of thought, holds that the soul existed before conception and birth. For example, Origen “believed that souls fell in their pre-bodily state and were imprisoned into flesh as a punishment.”[6] The Mormons also tend to follow this view. A variation on this theme is that the souls are with God waiting for a body to inhabit. This model seems very unlikely for regular human birth. In regard to our question of what kind of soul inhabited the Nephilim, if the preexistence model were accurate, then God would have intentionally sent the angels into the Nephilim.

The preexistence model fails because we know that the sons of Levi paid tithes to Melchizedek because they had “come from the loins of Abraham; for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him” (Heb 7:5, 10). In plain English, Levi was genetically in the testes of his grandfather Abraham when the tithes were paid to Melchizedek. This proves that he was not a soul waiting for a body. He was a seed—information ready to be passed down. This concept is easier for us to grasp in the age of genetics and information science, both of which were unfathomable to the ancients.

The creationist model of the soul holds that God creates each soul at the moment of conception. The reason this model fails is that under this theory, Jesus would not be spiritually related to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and King David, if each soul were created individually. This would also be true of the preexistence model.

The creationist model also does not explain the origin of the souls inhabiting the Nephilim bodies. Would God create evil beings who were so terrible that He would then destroy them in the Flood?

The last model is the transmission model of the soul. It teaches that the soul of a newborn comes from the parents—it is the immaterial information that is passed in the genes from parents to child. Think of the soul like sourdough bread. A pinch off the starter plus more flour and water is enough to keep the sourdough going for centuries.[7] Even recently, a bit of 4,500-year-old Egyptian yeast was revived and baked into delicious bread. So too, the information passed through the parents, plus nutrients and oxygen, forms the baby with the soul in it. Considering this genetically, human egg and sperm cells have only twenty-three individual (haploid) chromosomes. They combine during fertilization and equal the forty-six individual (diploid) chromosomes, which is the point at which a new human soul is transmitted from the parents.

If it takes two humans to form a new soul in the child, then supernatural being + human being would not yield a human soul. The transmission of the soul from parents to child would be broken because one of the parents is not human. We know this because though Jesus was related genetically to humanity, He was preexistent; He did not begin to exist at the incarnation—He is eternal and has always existed. Yet, the incarnation was the point at which the Godhead mingled seed (DNA, i.e. information) with humanity. We also discovered in Corrupting the Image 1, that “a son will inherit an identical copy of his father’s Y chromosome, and this copy is also essentially identical to the Y chromosomes carried by all his paternal forefathers” (Emphasis mine),[8] meaning that all men throughout time have had a copy of Adam’s Y chromosome.

Furthermore, Neil Bradman and Mark Thomas, in their article, “Why Y? The Y Chromosome In The Study Of Human Evolution, Migration, And Prehistory”, suggested that the Y chromosome may in fact be “a record of an event”[9]in the life of the man who passed on the current Y chromosome. [10] From there we concluded that Jesus did not have Adam’s Y chromosome and hence did not carry the defects or degeneration (sin), inherent in the copies of Adam’s Y chromosomes in every subsequent male descendent. Therefore, though the human soul is always transmitted from the mother and father to the child, in Jesus’ case, his spirit / soul (essence) must have been placed there. It was not transmitted because He is eternal. His soul / spirit did not originate from Mary and the Holy Spirit; He existed beforehand.

The Holy Spirit fused “the Jesus” gamete (spermatocyte) with Mary’s gamete (oocyte) (recall that a gamete contains DNA, which is stored information, a non-material entity). The fusion of the two gametes is when the incarnation (becoming flesh cf. John 1:14) occurred. At that point, Jesus’ divine information / soul became part of his DNA.

Therefore, it follows that the union of an angel and a human would have genetically created a physical body, but not necessarily a soul / spirit. The body would be a blank, an empty shell which could be filled with a spirit-being in need of a body. Jude says the angels “left their own abode (spiritual bodies).” They left them for the hybridized bodies we call Nephilim.

There is no technical reason that angels could not pass on their seed. They had the ability, but they did not have permission.

“But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection”(Luke 20:35–36).

Resurrected people do not marry again because they do not die, because they are equal to the angels. We do not become angels, but our bodies will be similar, and we will be equal to the angels in their power and glory. The text says nothing about the angels’ ability to pass on seed.

What is inside of a seed? Information—a non-material entity. We understand non-material data because we send information in our emails, voicemails, etc.; there is no physical substance to that information. We can interact with it, but we cannot touch it. A seed contains all information needed to become a living thing. A pumpkin seed holds all of the information needed to create a pumpkin. Angels have information, just as we have information. Even God has information; “No one having been born again continues to sin, for the seed of God dwells in him” (1 John 3:9).

However, the obstacle is that angels were not authorized to pass on their seed. God allowed it, but He did not bless it. In fact, the fallen angels’ unrighteous action brought a curse of immense magnitude upon themselves and the world.

There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (Gen 6:4).

The book of Giants, a grouping of Aramaic fragments found with the Dead Sea Scrolls, corroborates Genesis 6 by noting the corruption the angels wrought upon the Earth. The fragments have missing gaps, but they have been interpreted as:

2 [ . . . ] they defiled [ . . . ] 2[ . . . they begot] giants and monsters [ . . . ] 3[ . . . ] they begot, and, behold, all [the earth was corrupted . . . ] 4[ . . . ] with its blood and by the hand of [ . . . ] 5[giant’s] which did not suffice for them and [ . . . ] 6[ . . . ] and they were seeking to devour many [ . . . ] 7[ . . . ] 8[ . . . ] the monsters attacked it, (4Q531)(Emphasis mine).

We cannot help but notice how the angel’s corruption also led to the creation of monsters which further corrupted the Earth.

2[ . . . ] flesh [ . . . ] 3al[l . . . ] monsters [ . . . ] will be [ . . . ] 4[ . . . ] they would arise [ . . . ] lacking in true knowledge [ . . . ] because [ . . . ] 5[ . . . ] the earth [grew corrupt . . . ] mighty [ . . . ] 6[ . . . ] they were considering [ . . . ] 7[ . . . ] from the angels upon [ . . . ] 8[ . . . ] in the end it will perish and die [ . . . ] 9[ . . . ] they caused great corruption in the [earth . . .] (4Q532 Col. 2, Frags. 1 – 6).

 The fallen angels would have earthly bodies that belonged to them, and that were not temporarily borrowed from humans, because the bodies would now carry angelic genetic information. Biologically, the bodies of the Nephilim would be human-angel hybrids, but the indwelling spirit would be one hundred percent angel-spirit. It is entirely plausible that they were called Nephilim, meaning fallen, because they were inhabited by fallen angels.

Satan and his demons would have biological suits to be the earthly avatars for their spirits to inhabit. They would not have to entice humans to invite them to possess their bodies. Yet, they would have fleshly bodies in which they had full control, and would seemingly be human gods.

The Oath

The angels realized that once they crossed the line, they could never return into God’s kingdom. Their taking “wives for themselves of all whom they chose” (Gen 6:2) would be the point of no return; there was no going back. Ever. The eternal nature of their decision may be why they took an oath as recorded on an inscription on Mt. Hermon, which we will examine in the next chapter, and in 1 Enoch:7–8:[11]

Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis,which is the top of mount Armon.8 That mountain therefore was called Armon, because they had sworn upon it, and bound themselves by mutual execrations. [12]

Hermon (Armon) comes from āram which means “a ban for utter destruction, the compulsory dedication of something which impedes or resists God’s work, which is considered to be accursed before God.”[13]

It is called “Hermon” because the angels committed to a curse upon themselves if they should not continue with their plan, which is another indication that when they came down upon Hermon, they still had a lot to lose. They were not doing a Hail Mary at the end of the game; everything was on the line for them. In fact, Samyaza is concerned that he will do the dirty deed and the others will chicken out, leaving him high and dry.

3Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; 4And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. 5But they answered him and said; We all swear; 6And bind ourselves by mutual execrations, that we will not change our intention, but execute our projected undertaking. 7Then they swore all together and all bound themselves by mutual execrations (1 Enoch 7:2–7)(Emphasis mine).

This ancient event has lived in the memory of mankind for millennia. It has been called Hermon (laid under a curse) since the earliest of times (See Deut 3:8; Josh 11:13). The area south, south-east of Mt. Hermon was known as Bashan, which means snake-dragon. The mountain and surrounding area were considered the abode of the gods, both heaven and hell simultaneously, and home of the Rephaim, King Og, and Enlil / Baal.

For the ‘Canaanites’ of Ugarit, the Bashan region, or a part of it, clearly represented ‘Hell’, the celestial and infernal abode of their deified dead kings, – Olympus and – Hades at the same time. It is possible that this localization of the Canaanite Hell is linked to the ancient tradition of the place as the ancestral home of their dynasty, the rpum. [14]

Satan quite likely gloated in his “perfect plan” coming together in the land of Bashan. After all, the seed of the Messiah would never be able to stomp on his head if the image-bearers of God were destroyed, and if they were recast in his image instead! Mankind would become the ultimate slave by yielding up their flesh for Satan’s team to perpetually inhabit. The fate of mankind would have been worse than The Matrix where, at least, man could live out a satisfying simulation in their minds. If Satan’s plan had not been interrupted, mankind would have become extinct and the image of God created in Adam would have been replaced with that of the fallen angels.

Satan and his comrades would have bodies to cover their nakedness and sooth their pain. The bodies of the Nephilim would derive their energy from the Earth. The demons would also obtain energy from the blood of the body itself, which we saw with the demoniac who was cutting himself, presumably to feast on his own blood. They would be able to live forever because if a Nephilim bodysuit died, the interloper would simply grow another, and then possess it anew. Thus, Satan would have overcome the limitations put on him by his Creator, making him the ultimate victor.

Satan’s Mysterious Identity as Enlil (chpt 1A of Corrupting the Image 2)

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. The great dragon … that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world (Rev 12:3, 9).

Criminals sometimes use disguises to give themselves a different look to conceal their identity. They might use a mask, costume, false passports, websites, buildings and so on to gain their victims’ trust and access their money or personal information. Our journey will reveal how Satan has used those same tools since the earliest of times to deceive the world to trust him and give him access to our riches, authority and even our lives. He has at the same time attempted to open the Gates of Hades and thus, unleash his forces upon the world.

Satan did not begin as a criminal mastermind. We do not believe in dualism that teaches there are two equal but opposite powers, i.e. God versus Satan, good versus evil; Satan is not the equal of YHWH. Scripture is clear: God created Satan and He created him good: “You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created” (Ezek 28:15). God did not create Satan with the intention of him being wicked and sinful. Instead, He made him good, along with the other angels, including Cherubim / Seraphim, whom He spoke into existence.

Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! …. For He commanded and they were created. He also established them forever and ever (Ps 148:2–6).

The picture we get is that God said, “Michael,” and “Gabriel,” and they immediately began to exist. God spoke Satan’s name and he began to exist. Unlike humans, the angels were created with great wisdom (Ezek 28:12–13), and while they would certainly learn history as it unfolded, they would not have needed to learn to speak, to reason and to comprehend abstract thinking. They had no childhood or age of innocence. Michael, Gabriel, Satan and all the angels must have perceived how God had shared his qualities of speech, art, music, passion and emotion, as well as his likeness with them (Dan 10:1–6; Rev 22:8). At the same time, they must have perceived they were in the presence of supreme greatness, of the exalted King to whom there would never be any equal (Rev 10:1, 22:8–9, Jude 1:9), the One who, upon uttering a simple command, had brought them into existence out of nothing. (See Appendix 2 Angel Freewill).

Enlil (Heilel), Not Lucifer

Unlike Michael (“who is like God”) and Gabriel (“God is my Hero”), we do not know Satan’s original name. Christians have long spoken of Satan, the devil and Lucifer, yet when we research these titles, we find nothing in the ancient world. In Isaiah 14, the prophet said: “How you are fallen from heaven, O Heilel [Hêlēl הֵילֵ֣ל], son of the morning!” (Isa 14:12). “Lucifer” is not Satan’s name; The underlying Hebrew in the word is Heilel ֵ[Hêlēl הֵילֵ֣ל].[i] Deciphering this word using the tools of the Ancient Near East is the key we need.

The ancient translators, not having all the texts we have today, came to this word “Heilel,” a hapax legomenon, (a word that appears once in Scripture), and had to make a guess; they translated it into Greek as eosphorus. We now can go back to early texts of Mesopotamia, written in the Sumerian and Akkadian languages, and do some comparative linguistics. Eos meaning “dawn” and phorus means “bearer.”Eosphorus, therefore, means dawn-bearer, (similarly to how Christo-pher means Christ-bearer). In Latin, Eos (light) became lux, and phorus became pheros, hence “Lucifer” which was a good attempt.  

My friend, Dr. Bill Gallagher, wrote a paper: On the Identity of Hêlēl Ben Sahar from Isaiah 14. He notes how the biblical Hebrew root HLL could be directly related to the ancient god Enlil: “One could reasonably expect hll to be the West Semitic form of Illil. As the Ebla tablets suggest, Illil came into West Semitic directly from Sumerian.”[ii] In other words, Heilel is equivalent phonetically to the Sumerian Enlil … and Akkadian Illil (or Ellil). Dr. Gallagher laid out the parallels between Heilel and Enlil, recreated on the next page:

Table 2 Enlil in Isaiah and Ancient Near Eastern literature

Isaiah’s Description
His name was Hêlēl (Isa 14:12).
He was the son of dawn (vs. 12).
He laid the nations low (vs. 12).
He aspired to set up his throne above the stars of El (vs. 13).
He aspired to sit in the mount of assembly and on Saphon (14:13).
He aspired to be like the Most High (14:14).
He fell down to earth into the midst of the pit (14:12, 15).
Enlil / Illil’s Description
hyll Hebrew equivalent of Illil
Causes the dawn
Illil was a devastator
Illil’s astral function was immense
Illil was among the most prominent members in it (in the divine assembly)
Illil was the highest in Mesopotamia until the end of the second millennium
Illil’s fall into the underworld is recorded in first millennium texts

Comparing Isaiah 14 with the descriptions in Mesopotamian texts, we find that there is a direct correlation. “The name Enlil can thus be rendered ‘Lord Wind”[iii] which is incredibly similar to how Paul refers to Satan as “Prince of the Power of the Air” (Eph 2:2). In Revelation 12:3, John saw a dragon with ten horns. Enlil was regularly represented wearing a crown or helmet with ten horns as depicted in Figure 4, (next page). Revelation has accurately pulled back the curtain on Satan’s secret identity: Satan = Enlil.

Figure 4 Cylinder Seal of Enlil. p. 19. John Gray. Near Eastern Mythology. London. Hamlyn House Ltd. 1969.

We find Satan’s various biblical epithets (his titles) are also matched in the ancient world. Satan boasted in Isaiah that he would “sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north” (Isa 14:13), which is the same description of God’s holy mountain: “Mount Zion [on] the sides of the north, The city of the great King” (Ps 48:2). Alfred Jeremias points out that Enlil was “assimilated to the North Pole of the Ecliptic.”[iv]

Moreover, Samuel Kramer states how the creator god: “An carried off heaven while Enlil carried off the earth and assumed most of An’s powers. “Satan, the ruler of this world” (John 12:31), is shown in the Bible to have temporary dominion over the Earth. Enlil is also glorified as ‘the father of the gods, the king of heaven and earth,’ ‘the king of all the lands.’”[v] We note the comparison with Satan’s boast: “I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; … I will be like the Most High” (Isa 14:13–14).

Though we do not know his original name, we do know that the biblical appellations for him as “Prince of the Power of the Air” and “Heilel” are precisely what Satan was called in the ancient world. The figure in Isaiah 14 was the same exact entity known as Enlil in Sumerian, and Illil in Akkadian. In fact, the epithet Enlil “Lord Wind” was so commonly used that it eventually became the very word for “idols” in scripture. God said to Israel: “Do not turn to the idols [הָ֣אֱלִילִ֔ים ha’elilim] … I am the LORD your God (Lev 19:4). A. T. Clay in 1907 pointed out “the origin of elilim [אלילים], the word translated “idols” in the Old Testament … is probably to be found in the … deity Ellil.”[vi]

Christopher B. Hays also suggests that “idols” may just be a form of Illil (Enlil) which could also mean “god of gods.”

His name was known far and wide throughout the ancient Near East, and in syllabic cuneiform, it was written as Illil (e. g. d.-li-lu); this is taken to be a contracted form based on a doubling of the word ilu, “god”, i. e. il-ilû, “god of gods”… In fact, it is now commonly argued that the Sumerian writing of his name, den.líl (“Lord Wind”) was derived from the Semitic name. [vii]

We have already unlocked a great deal! “Lucifer” is actually Heilel which was Enlil in the ancient world and was almost certainly the same word as “idols” in the Hebrew Bible. Obscuring his specific name has made it easier for Satan to hide his identity through the ages. Nevertheless, because we know that Heilel (Enlil) was syncretized (had fused his identity) with a multitude of gods, we can trace him. Hays notes:

Because lordship itself was Illil’s defining characteristic … Akkadian terms such as illilu, “god of the highest rank” and illilūtu, “divine supremacy” (literally “Enlil-ship”) … illilūtu was ascribed to various other deities over the centuries, including Šamaš, Marduk, Sîn and Nabû, each of whom was called illilu at various times. This background is significant to the biblical use of אליל , since it too arguably began with a specific reference to Illil, but was also applied to other divinities.[viii]

The implications are huge—“Enlil” or “Satan” was quite likely a general term for “idols” which God said not to worship in the Ten Commandments. Also, Satan was known by a host of other titles, though for simplicity, we will generally refer to him as Satan or Enlil throughout this book. Keep in mind that the names and titles, many which we find in the Bible with variant spellings, refer to Satan: Enlil (Isa 14:12), Ninurta (2 Kgs 19:37), Marduk / Merodach (Jer 50:2), Baal / Bel (Isa 46:1), Dumuzid / Tammuz (Ezek 8:14), and more. One of Satan’s disguises the Bible audaciously unmasks is that of Melqart, King of Tyre.

How Do Angels Reproduce?

A recent question from a visitor to the site:

1) If angels don’t need to reproduce and if they are only male angels, how did they reproduce with human females?nephilim_dvd

Does that mean that they have male reproductive organs, and if so, why? if they don’t need to reproduce in heaven.

It is true that we see only male angels ever mentioned in Scripture which leads us to conclude that there are no female counterparts. The answer to how they could have passed on their seed is found in several verses. First of all, we understand that they are able to alter their form, apparently at will. The popular term for that ability is shape-shifting.

And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. (2Cor 11:14 NKJV)

In 2 Corinthians 5:2 the word (oiketerion) is a word that is used for our future (celestial) bodies.

For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, (2Cor 5:2 NKJV)

The same word is used in conjunction with the angels that sinned by taking women in Genesis 6:Lastly we know from Jude 1:6 that there were some angels that “did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode [oiketerion], He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day.” (Jude 1:6 NKJV)

 

Therefore, we understand that it is possible for angels and fallen angels to transform themselves from their spirit bodies into some kind of terrestrial bodies.

The other issue, which I describe in great detail in my book, Corrupting the Image how “seed” is not defined by the “hardware” but by the “software” that is, the information contained in the seed. Because seed/DNA is a non-material entity, then there is no problem for something from the spiritual realm to take on form in the terrestrial realm.

 

Stan Deyo to Appear on According to the Scriptures Thursday May 2

Stan Deyo has held Above Top Secret Security Clearance and worked undercover for the FBI. He was part of an exclusive “black project”, headed by Dr. Edward Tellerspecializing in the development of “flying saucer technology”.

Stan’s diverse background encompasses:

  • computer programmer of mainframes in 7 languages, PC and Macintosh
  • senior systems analyst
  • research physicist (both formally and self-educated)
  • marine architect (self-educated)
  • advanced propulsion engineer for marine, air and spacecraft
  • author of three books and six scientific papers
  • partner in Deyo Enterprises LLC – our R&D, website hosting, book publishing and book distribution company for the last 35 years
  • amateur archeologist in the Middle East – explored real “Indy Jones” caves in the Qumran region of Israel
  • TV documentary television host for several shows on Tesla (Eye of the Storm)and a series of three highly-rated shows on Channel 9 in Perth: UFOs Are Here,UFOs Deyo and You and UFOs Are Back
  • university lecturer in 3D computer animation and graphic art
  • Biblical student
  • public lecturer on world events including:
  1. The coming global economic collapse
  2. Developing solar-related crises in the Earth’s climate
  3. The “UFO” deception and its real intent
  4. Suppression of badly needed technologies
  5. The coming destruction of America by civil war followed by foreign invasion
  6. High voltage physics of “cheaper” energy

Born in Clifton, Texas to a family of American Pioneers, Stan spent his first two years in nearby Valley Mills with his grandparents until his father returned from the Middle East – a US Army Air Force Base Commander in WW2. Valley Mills is just seven miles from Crawford, home to President Bush’s ranch.

Stan spent most of his youth in Dallas where (while at J. F. Kimball H.S.) he was a member of the National Honor Society, Captain of the rifle team, Lt. Colonel in the NDCC (ROTC), recipient of the Sons of the American Revolution Medal, and honored as one of the two most outstanding math students.

Graduating high school just three months after his 16th birthday, Stan was awarded a partial engineering scholarship to the University of Texas and also was given a full congressional appointment (scholarship) to the US Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs. He was the only 4th class cadet who received written permission from General Curtis E. LeMay (head of S.A.C. at the time) to drink coffee and sit at ease during meals – which was not the norm for 4th class cadets.

Upon returning to Dallas from USAFA, Stan trained in computer programming at IBM. Shortly thereafter, he formed his own “mission impossible” team solving extremely sensitive, difficult corporate computing problems.

Stan’s main love is still advanced propulsion and “free” energy research which took him to Australia in ’71 to work on these systems as part of a global project under the direction of such men as Dr. Edward Teller and Dr Andrei Sakharov.

Currently Stan is:
a) working on a Tesla-based energy system similar to that of Dr T. Henry Moray
b) several,novel air and marine propulsion projects
c) giving many radio interviews
d) writing his second paper (in a series of three) on the inertial nature of gravity with many graphic illustrations which show the ‘layered shells’ nature of moons, planets, stars, galaxies and even galactic clusters… which addresses the ‘hollow Earth’ possibility and…
e) conducting a planet-wide test with many people who are taking measurements of changes in the Earth’s magnetic and gravitational fields using a technique Stan discovered.

In 1969, Stan experienced an NDE which only strengthened his Faith, though at the time, he was not a Believer. We met with Hopi elders of the Shungopavi Village in Arizona twice by invitation to discuss prophecy.

In 1996 we visited the restricted access FNMOC at the US Navy base in Monterey to share Stan’s method of earthquake prediction (based on sea surface temperature fluctuations – something Stan formulated from the Navy’s own data but they had not seen this use for it until he showed them.) For 10 years he made earthquake forecasts using their data with an accuracy of about 70% and a lead time of 1-7 days. Sadly, in 2006 the Naval data stream was classified; so Stan had to abandon this project. However, in 2012 he was able to develop another data source which enabled him to once again start providing daily earthquake forecasts. This time his accuracy ranges from 80% to 90%

At Air Force Space Command in Colorado Springs (now headquartered in Omaha), we met with Major Green, affectionately known as “Major Meteor” by his colleagues, to discuss the probability of meteors impacting Earth. Stan has packed more into 67years than most folks do in two lifetimes!

Stan’s scientific approach is backed by extensive research. He is not motivated to make a “quick buck”, nor is he trying to sell anything other than his books that are treasured by those who have them. He feels obliged to let the public know both what he sees from a scientific perspective as well as from Biblical research.

As strange as this might sound, on occasion, Stan has what he calls dream/visions. They do not happen often, maybe one every few years and initially, they only involved him or the immediate family. Now his dream/visions are becoming more frequent and involve other folks, other countries. My first “proof” of his abilities was his dream/vision where he “saw” me as his wife, his partner in life, and exactly where I lived several months before we’d even met!

We did, in fact, meet as a result of one of Stan’s early appearances on Art Bell’s radio program Coast To Coast AM. If you knew our details and the fact that we were living 12,000 miles apart, you’d appreciate the near-impossibility of this, but it DID come true. When Stan tells me he’s “had a dream”, I hold my breath, because his dream/visions have never NOT come.

God graced him with a phenomenal mind that he uses to help folks, not to make us wealthy. Maybe it sounds like I make him out to be bigger than life, but of how many people can you say, “it’s truly a gift knowing him…” He’s kind and gentle, an idealist with a terrific sense of fun.

In 2001, Stan and I, and our 4-leggeds Seismo and Taco, came back home to Pueblo County, Colorado near the Sangre de Cristos of the Rockies and the beautiful Beulah Valley – just 25 miles from our home. Sadly on the 11th of June in 2011 we lost Taco and then Seismo followed her this year on the 26th of July 2012. They both had long and adventure-filled lives with us: flying across the world, joining Stan in international radio shows on Coast to Coast AM, chasing jack rabbits, catching mice on the farm and tracking roos…. We miss them both.

As Seismo began to fade in 2011 we found two Australian Kelpie pups to keep him company. He was not pleased at first but as the pups grew he tolerated them. Now they are our support team and we love them both but are especially fond of Jayzbo Baggins Deyo who is more loving and responsible than his mate, Isabella Margarita Deyo – whose intelligence gets her into trouble a lot.

May God bless you all,

The Beast Befriends the Nephilim (Audio) Interview with Bill Salhus

Satan’s DNA may already be implanted in his seed the Antichrist. Some believe this coming charismatic world leader may be a human hybrid containing superhuman genetic codes. And, in a recent poll conducted by Dr. David Reagan of Lamb and Lion Ministries 91% of today’s top Bible Prophecy experts believe this beastly character could be alive today!i

In this edition of the Prophecy Update radio program Bill Salus sits down with author / researcher Doug Hamp, the author of the top – selling book called “Corrupting the Seed, Angels, Aliens, and the Antichrist Revealed”. Together they explore the potential deeper meaning of the “Days of Noah,” prophecy issued by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:37-38, and Luke 21:26-27.

Did Jesus superficially warn that the end times would be characterized by carefree living, or was the Messiah preparing the final generation for the return of the Nephilim of Noah’s time? Genesis 6:4 says, “There were GIANTS (Nephilim) on the earth in those days, (of Noah) and also afterward, when the sons of God (FALLEN ANGELS) came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

The ancient world was destroyed by a flood, was it because of carefree living or was it because Satan had corrupted the seed of the woman by instructing his fallen angelic cohorts to inseminate hybrid DNA code into the human race? Genesis 3:15 alerted Satan to the fact that the Messiah would come through the seed of the woman, and scholars like Doug Hamp believe that Satan promptly launched a devilish campaign of corrupting the seed of the woman to prevent the coming of Jesus Christ.

Are Satan and his bad bunch of angels up to their old antics? Are they implanting hybrid genetic code into humans under the disguise of alien abductions? Will the Antichrist be a counterfeit hypostatic union between a human and a Nephilim?

In the Days of Noah (Audio)

The Days of Noah People Being MeanWhen it comes to the flood, our children most often are presented with a story that is hard to believe. They are told that the world was a place where people were being mean to each other, people were stealing, and people with crafty eyes were looking for trouble. Because of this, God decided to destroy the entire planet. It is estimated that there were between six to seventeen billion people on the earth in those days and yet only eight people escaped with their lives. How can it be that a loving God would destroy so many people for merely “being mean to each other”? Even the reason for the flood is not explained and then the ark itself is portrayed as a cute little boat with giraffes sticking their heads out and the elephants hanging their trunks over the side. Is it possible that such a lopsided teaching produces children who grow up to be skeptics? Only when the first four verses of Genesis six are taught properly does the true picture come into view – a picture that explains why such a horrific event could happen on planet earth.

Corrupting the Image on Prophecy in the News with Gary Stearman (part 2)

Will the mark of the beast be an injection that promises to extend life but instead alters human DNA forever? Will our heavenly bodies be made of indestructible light? Will the rapture be explained away by our benevolent space brothers? Fallen angels and hybrids dominate Doug Hamp’s interview with Gary. Fascinating would be a grand understatement!
