This mystery of the giants and evil spirits was understood hundreds of years before the time of Christ but it was lost in the 4th century when a bishop of the Catholic Church changed the knowledge that had existed and been known for many centuries. That knowledge and teaching was that in ancient times, fallen angels took upon themselves the form of human flesh. These fallen angels went into the daughters of men and they produced a race of giants upon the earth. When those giants died, the spirits of those men, being a combination of the seed of man and the seed of fallen angels, being not fully man or fallen angel became the demons that we have to deal with today.
To those who have not heard it or may not believe it, this study from the early church fathers, scriptures and Hebrew word studies combined together produce the information contained herein.
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Before the creation of earth and man as we know it, some 6000 years ago, was what is called the ageless past or dateless past. In that time, God created the angels and they were present when God created the heavens and the earth according to Job 38:7. “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” Sons of God in the Hebrew is B”Nai Elohim and refers to the angels according to Biblical and Hebrew scholars. Angels were present when God created the heaven and the earth. Then somewhere between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 there was a great fall that took place. This is recorded in Revelation 12:1-4 where Satan drew one third of the ‘stars’ of heaven and caused them to be cast to the earth. Here the Hebrew word that is an idiom referring to heavenly hosts or the angels.
Genesis 2:1 “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” The Word for host in Hebrew means a mass of persons or army that is prepared. It means that God created a host of warring heavenly angels and not a bunch of heavenly stars. So in the beginning, in Genesis 1:1 everything is perfect. Then in Genesis 1:2 the earth is without form and void and darkness in on the face of the deep. “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” The Hebrew word for deep is ‘Tehome’ which is the underground abyss, chambers underneath the earth.
The Bible tells us there is a place we know in the center of the earth called hell. Matthew 25:41 tells us that it was prepared for the devil and his angels. “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” So, in the beginning of time, when God made the heavens and the earth, everything was perfect and hell was not yet prepared. Satan was Lucifer, the anointed cherub. Then Satan fell between Genesis 1:1 And 1:2 and the earth goes into total chaos and that is where God goes into the ‘Tehome’ or deep and forms the area known as the abyss for the devil and his angels. Jesus said Hell was not prepared for people, but for fallen angels and Satan. But because man sinned, God is forced to separate man from Himself and allow them to spend eternity with the Devil and his angels, whom they choose to serve and follow.
When Adam and Eve were placed in the garden, we know the fall of Satan had already taken place. When the serpent shows up in Genesis 3:1-6 the fall of Lucifer had already taken place and sin was already in the universe and the serpent was the creature Satan used to instigate the temptation upon Eve and also upon Adam.
When Satan comes into the garden and causes man to fall, man then becomes subject to sin, sickness and death. Those things came into being because of the fall of man.
There is a strange and unique verse in Genesis 3:15 after man has fallen into sin and God speaks to Satan. “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” This is a prophecy to Satan. If you look at this prophecy, it tells us that eventually the seed of the woman will defeat the seed of the serpent. There is a lot of strange and peculiar doctrine that has come into being over this statement. Some even believe that the snake somehow actually went in to Eve, had sexual relations and their physical union produced Cain, the ungodly seed. This is not Biblically or theologically sound teaching. That has no basis in the scripture or in the Hebrew words or their meanings.
Yet, Satan produced a seed on the earth. That seed is what caused the flood in Noah’s day, because of a great race of giants that covered the earth at that time, it caused the imaginations of man to be wicked continually, that seed is what kept the children of Israel out of the Promised Land and that seed of the Serpent was an ancient race of giants which were the offspring of the fallen angels that took on the form of men and went in to the daughters of man to produce a mixed race, half man and half fallen angel that were destroyed in Noah’s flood. For those who doubt this, let us ready it from the Bible.
Genesis 6: 1-4 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
This is not a theory, but is documented from Jewish sources, early church fathers, and non-Biblical sources that wrote of these things and there are many historical quotes telling of angels coming down to the earth and taking on the form of man and going into the daughters of man and producing this race of giants. This is nothing new but believed for centuries. It was believed in Jewish history and Church history until the 4th century when there were lots of monks in Monasteries who were unmarried. This early church fathers said if a angel could take upon himself human flesh and sin how can we teach these Monks the possibility of living a sinless life, of never being married and being tempted.
Also at that time in the 4th century there was a lot of angel worship. So, out of fear they changed the teaching and said that these sons of God that came into the daughters of men that produced these giants that we read about in Genesis chapter 6, was simply the sons of god were such that one group were the seed of Cain and another group the seed of Seth and so theologically they changed what was believed and taught. This is a part of the corruption of the Catholic Church that began in the 4th century.
The phrase “sons of god” is found in Genesis 6:2, 4 and Job 1:6, 38:7 is the word B’NAI ELOHIM. Scholars indicate; when you study the Word of God that this literally refers to angels or angels of God. When you do a word study, historically “sons of god” were angels.
2 Peter 2:4 and Jude 1:6 tells us that there were angels who fell that kept not their first estate and are reserved in chains until the end time. But who are these fallen angels? There is a problem to some when you say that angels came to the earth and took on the form of men. Yet, consider Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Many have done so. Angels can take upon the form of flesh, as they did in Lot’s day when God sent to angels to Lot but the people of
Sodom thought they were men like themselves.
History and church history tells us that from Adam to Moses there was no scripture, so God sent angels to earth to try and teach men righteousness. When these angels took on themselves the form of flesh, they were enamored by them and went into them and produced an offspring of giants. The big argument is the Bible says that angels are sexless. No it doesn’t. It says that in heaven they are not married or given in marriage. Matthew 22:30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”
Jesus pre-existed with the Father. John 8:58 “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” Jesus who was in heaven in spirit took upon Himself a human body (Philippians 2:6-7) in the womb of Mary, so could He possibly be tempted to sin or to sin? Yes according to Hebrews 4:15 because he came as the second Adam. “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Did Adam sin? So if the Son of God who pre-existed in heaven in a spiritual body, spirit form could take upon himself flesh in the womb of a woman and become fully man, then He could be tempted as any other man. If He couldn’t be tempted, then He didn’t have to overcome where the first Adam failed and so He didn’t really do that which was required to redeem us. When Jesus came He came on the basis as the first Adam was created. He was the eternal Son of God where Adam was the created son of God.
Angels, when they took on the form of a man, could then be tempted as all other men. They functioned as any other fleshly man. This was the induction of the seed of the serpent upon the earth, this race of giants to corrupt the lineage of the Messiah and destroy the purpose and plan of God.
Deuteronomy 2:10-11 “The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.” There are a number of Hebrew words that refer to these giants. Deuteronomy 3:11-13 “For only Og king of
Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half” mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites. And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.
Joshua 12:4 “And the coast of Og king of
Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei…” Here is mention in Moses time of a race of giants. There are 5 words used in the English Bible for giants. (1) Anakims, (2) Emims, (3) Rephaim (4) Avims (5) Zamzummins. In all these words used in the Bible, they all are used in reference to giants. We see them appear in Genesis 14 where Abraham and the kings come into the area of Sodom and Gomorrah and fight a battle. A Hebrew word study reveals that these kings destroyed a race of giants. Then when you go back to the Torah in the time of Moses and you see these giants possess the territory all over the Promised Land
We know by studying historical records that (1) Fallen angels came to the earth before the flood of Noah and produced a large race of giants all over the earth. We also know from history and research that (2) after the flood of Noah 200 angels came down on top of Mt. Hermon to teach righteousness and fell into sin when they took upon themselves the form of flesh. Those angels that took upon themselves the form of flesh and fell into sin and produced giants , are the angels the Bible talks about that are now bound up in the abyss under the earth in the book of Jude and 2nd Peter that kept not their first estate. Jude 1:6 “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
This is taken from a website called “the holocaust of the giants, the great Smithsonian cover-up” (that’s the title) @ http://www.greatserpentmound.org/articles/giants. In the
we have what is called the serpent mounds. Serpent Mound is the largest "serpent effigy" known to man. It is a 1/4 mile long mound shaped like a snake and located in United States of America Years ago the Smithsonian Institute began excavating these mountains from about 1880 to about the turn of the century. This is some of the quotes. “at a dept of 14 feet (in Adams County, Ohio. Springhill, West Virginia) a rather large human skeleton was found which was in partially an upright position with it’s back against the upright clay. Nineteen feet from the top, the bottom of this debris was reached. Where in the remains of a bark coffin, a skeleton measuring 7 ½’, 19 inches across the shoulder was discovered.”
From the 12th annual report was given to the secretary of the Smithsonian in 1890 and 1891. They were digging in an Indian serpent mound in
West Virginia. “three feet above the skeleton of a large strongly built man, legs extended at full length, with the face up, but the head toward the east. The skull was obtained almost entire. Under it were 13 water worn quartz pebbles. The femur measured 18 ½ inches long.” It goes on talking about their digging in Pennsylvania.
If you take some of these serpent mounds in the
and the Smithsonian can’t dig there and excavate now, but in the early days the Smithsonian Institute dug these mounds out. Also people in the 1700’s and early 1800’s could come into the area and build roads and would dig these out found evidence of skeletons that were 7 ½ to 8 ½ feet long. These are much larger and taller than the average Indian years ago, a giant sized people. United States
A footprint discovered some time back in the area of Syria that was pictured in Biblical Archaeology Review of May-June 2000, Volume 23 #3 talked about a temple built in Northern Syria that was similar to the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, discovered in 1936. It contained stones carved with lions, cherubim and geometric designs. It had three chambers like the
Temple and a shrine like the holy of holies. What was strange is that there was a series of footprints found on the outside, carved onto the floor. “On the floor slabs of the portico are carved the giant prints three feet long. Two appear on the first slab, the left print appears on a second slab. It is as if some giant had paused on the entranceway before striding into the building. In ancient conception the temple was the abode of the god.” And this is why these imprints may have been there because it was a temple for the worship of some god or goddess.
The reason I am saying that is this temple was located in
Syriain the Golan Heights or the Bashan area. This is where the Bible talks about this man named Og, the king of Bashan whose bed, if you take a cubit being 25 inches, his bed was 18 feel long and 4 feet wide. This is according to the notes in the Dakes Annotated Bible (Deuteronomy 3:11). “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.”
You think about a being, being that tall and it doesn’t take too long to figure out how big the feet are. No wonder when the children of
Israelcame into the Promised land were scared and said they looked like grasshoppers in comparison. He would have had a shoe come 25 inches long and yet the prints in Syriain the three feet in length. These men are in the Bible. Temple was
These fallen angels that took upon themselves the form of men and fell into sin existed and produced a race of giants that are the seed of the serpent.
Up until the fourth century, Jewish sources, Rabbinical sources, early church fathers all believed the same thing and when you do a word study you se it all come together. They all believed that a group of fallen angels who came down to the earth and took upon themselves the form of men, then went into women and produced a race of giants between 8 to 15 feet tall (Genesis 6:1-2).
This race of giants then corrupted mankind, they corrupted the thinking of mankind and caused men to be filled with wicked thinking. In reading Genesis 6:1-7 it alludes to the fact that possibly one of the reason that God sent the flood to destroy the world is because this race of giants were corrupting the entire world and corrupting the imaginations of men and women and also the fact that that mixed race was corrupting the pure race of man, the descendants of Adam, through which the Savior had to come. The Savior had to be of the seed of woman, but not from a mixed seed. Jesus came to redeem mankind, descended from Adam.
There is no place in the Bible that tells us where evil spirits come from. We see references to familiar spirits (Leviticus 19:31, 20:6, 20:27) written by Moses some 3500 years ago and in Judges 9:23 is the first reference to evil spirits. In Ephesians 6:12 we are told of principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in heavenly places, but that is a different group of spirits from what we are talking about in this study.
There appears to be strong evidence that when the giants that were the offspring of fallen angels died, a Hebrew word study indicates that the giants have no resurrection. In Isaiah 26:14 we see they shall not rise and that they are dead in a way that they will not live again and yet we have not come to the final judgment of the righteous and unrighteous, and the resurrection that is to life or damnation. “They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.” The Hebrew word there that they are deceased is the same Hebrew word used and translated as “giants” in numerous Old Testament passages. The spirit of these giants became the demons. This is a theory, but it is what was believed up until the fourth century by Jews and Christians alike.
Here are some of the verses that show these giants existed. Joshua 15:8, 12:4-5; Deuteronomy 3:13, 2:20-21; Numbers 13:33. We know these giants were something to be reckoned with.
From Josephus, Book V, Chapter II, Josephus wrote some 1900 years ago; “For which reason they removed their camp to
Hebron; and when they had taken it they slew all the inhabitants. There were till then left a race of giants, who had bodies so large and countenances so entirely different from men, that they were terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men.” So he says the bones of those giants were on display during his day. So since bones deteriorate, unless some are found in a dry cave or something, they won’t be seen again.
Here is a quote from early church fathers, from The Book of Jubilees from the middle of the
Second Temple period. Several fragments of this book were found at Qumran. “The angels are said to have descended to earth to instruct mankind how to order society, and when they arrived on earth they were seduced by the daughters of men. A hint of this latter idea is preserved in the additional chapter at the end of the book of Enoch (106) called the Fragment of the Book of Noah. Here the angels are feared for having taken to themselves the daughters of man.”
Here is an early church father, from The Words of Methodius (260 to 312), Volume 6, Page 368; “The devil is a spirit made by God, in the neighborhood of matter, as a course the rest of the angels are, and he was entrusted with the oversight of matter, and the forms of matter… but the devil was insolent, and having conceived envy of us, behaved wickedly in the charge committed to him; as also did those (Angels) who subsequently were enamored of fleshly charms, and had illicit intercourse with the daughters of men.”
Clement of Alexander and other early church father taught the same thing, that angels took on the form of flesh and lived as men and produced these giants.
We need to understand spiritual things. Let us go back to the time of
. 1 Samuel 17:4-7 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.” Israel
Dakes Anotated Bible page 310 tells us that a cubit is 18-25 inches depending on whether it was Israeli or Egyptian, being the distance from the end of the tip of the middle finger to the elbow. A span is the distance from the end of your little finger to the end of your thumb with your hand outstretched. So Goliath was somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 feet tall, estimated by some from 11 to 13 feet. His armor on the front of his chest weighed 195 pounds. His spear head alone weighed 24 pounds. A spear is always taller than a man; it was like a weavers beam according to scripture. The average Jew at that time was about 5’ 10” tall. Goliath’s foot was about 3-4 times that of a normal man. Goliath had a shield that an armor bearer carried in front of him, but the shield didn’t help him and his coat of armor didn’t help him because David hit him in the one area that he was vulnerable, his forehead.
1 Samuel 17:40-41 “And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.”
Many say the Bible is full of allegory and how can we take this to be a real giant. If you don’t believe it then your Bible is of no value to you. There were giants on the earth. Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; (That is plain English) and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” Either you believe God’s Word is God’s Word or you don’t. If you don’t you cannot be either a believer or a Christian, but just heathen.
There is physical evidence of giants. The Biblical Archaeology Review, May/June 2000 Vol. 23, Number 3 showed a picture of a giant footprint that was in a temple excavated in Syria in the 1930’s and on the floor of the Temple was three feet long. Deuteronomy 3:11 “For only Og king of
Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.” Og, King of Bashan had a bed that was 18 feet long, depending on the size of the cubit, so the three feet would have been a correct footprint for such a man. Some would say, oh that sounds like Mythology. I believe that like many other things, mythology is a corruption of truth. The Greeks made up all those stories and mythology isn’t true, but Satan tries to corrupt all that is true. Even the early church fathers spoke of what the Greek writers wrote about and said to not believe them but what they were saying.
The Golan Heights is the area of
Bashan in the Bible. It is the area where camped out and sent the spies in to spy out the land. They didn’t believe they could do so because of he giants in the land. Numbers 21:33-34 “And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the king of Israel Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle at Edrei. And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.”
There are a lot of circle stone like Stonehenge, found in
England, Ireland, and South America, Mount Hermon is within sight of circle stones in the Golan Heights. According to some early church history, Mount Hermon is where the second group of fallen angels came down to teach men righteousness and were enamored by the daughters of men and sinned. Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
So, we see there were giants produced before the flood, but then also again after the flood by a second group of angels who took upon themselves the form of man. They weren’t fallen when they came to the earth, and they had come to teach men the Word of God because there was no word of God until Exodus chapters 19-34 when Moses was given the Torah upon mount Sinai. Angels were sent to teach men righteousness and then fell into sin. Genesis 6:2 “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” So again, there were produced another race of giants.
This fact is shown and proven by Jewish history, early church history, historical sources. Five different sources authenticate these facts of the giants being produces by angels who became men.
Then there is what is called the dolmens. They are a stone table and there are over 3000 of them in the Bashan area of the
Golan Heights and this is the place Bible said a giant named Og lived who bed was nine cubits long and four wide. Deuteronomy 3:11 “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.”
It is believed that the dolmens are evidence of a race of giants that existed about 4000 years ago and they are all over the Bahan and
Golan Heights area. They are found in Stonehenge in Irelandand South America and different parts of the world. History indicates that the earth in its early form that the earth had all the plates together and was not separated by water as today. Then in Genesis 10:25 we are told that the earth was divided. “And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.”
Many Christian scientists believe that is when the plates of the nations separated to as they are today.
Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” God is addressing Satan, the serpent. He said satan had a seed or whould have a seed. From that time, that promise of the Messiah, a redeemer to redeem mankind, satan put a plan into action to stop the Messiah and redemption by corrupting the seed of woman. The promise was not given to be the seed of man, but woman, one who would conceive and bear a child without a man. Luke 1:30-35
So Satan knew he had to corrupt the womb of the seed of woman. By using these fallen angels, he corrupted the sons of men. Four time in the Bible the term B’Nai Elohim, “Sons of God” is used. Genesis 6:2,4; Job 1:6, 21, 38:7; Daniel 3:25; Pslam 21:9 These sons of God are angels and most all commentaries agree with this. This is what was believed until the fourth century.
David began the destruction of the race of giants. They were destroyed in David’s time. There was Goliath (1 Samuel 17:4), Lami (1 Chronicles 20:5), Ishbibanob (2 Chronicles 21:16), Saph (2 Chronicles 21:18), and
Gath (1 Chronicles 20:6) David took out Goliath and his mighty men took out the rest. When David and his men took out the last of the giants on the earth, then Satan stood up to provoke David. 1 Chronicles 21:1 “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number .” Satan was so angry at David for destroying the seed of the serpent on the earth. Israel
There is evidence in writing and it was believed in the time of Christ that when the giants died that their spirits became the demon spirits. David killed the natural seed of Satan, the giants. Then Jesus came along and defeated the spiritual seed of Satan. Jesus, the seed of woman crushed the seed of the serpent. Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
