The Nephilim-Part Two

The traditional 'angel' interpretation of Genesis 6 was used to attack Christianity. When Augustine embraced the Sethite theory, it stuck and is still taught today. What is the Sethite theory?

In short, it's believers marrying unbelievers producing ungodly children. This interpretation can't be true. Why? Read on in Genesis: "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" (Genesis 6:4). What the?!? Believers marrying unbelievers may produce a mixed-up kid, but certainly not a giant!

Back in Noah's day, the human race was corrupted by fallen angels. They co-habitated with humans and created one heck of a gene-pool problem. This was such a monumental breach of God's order that it provoked a divine judgment. The entire world was destroyed with The Flood. Everyone, every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth was wiped out except Noah. Why? Because only Noah and his family were still fully human. All the others had tainted genes. They were corrupted, in other words. God had no choice but to start over using Noah and his family to repopulate the earth.

Unfortunately, though the Nephilim were destroyed in The Flood, their spirits remained. Mankind would now have to contend with something new: Demonic entities.

So why didn't God destroy their spirits, too, if they were such an affront? We don't know. Maybe the consequences of this particular sin meant having to contend with disembodied evil spirits until the final judgment.

We do know this: The human spirit is eternal. It cannot be destroyed and will spend eternity in either heaven or hell. Those who choose to repent of their sin and be redeemed by the death of Christ will spend eternity in heaven. But those who choose to ignore God's offer of salvation will spend eternity in hell.

The Nephilim were conceived in direct opposition to God and were neither human nor angel. They cannot be redeemed, in other words. When a Nephilim dies, its spirit cannot enter heaven, it is left 'homeless', looking for a place to enter in. It's demonic, and because it's disembodied, it tries to find a host body, hence the Biblical references to demonic possession (Luke 4:33, 11:19; Acts 16:16).

So what does all this have to do with UFOs?

We believe the world is being set up for the biggest deception ever perpetrated against mankind. Demonic entities, in the guise of extraterrestrials, have been engaged in a subterfuge that will effect the destiny of every man, woman, and child on the planet. These 'aliens' spout pantheistic philosophies and an Eastern-mystical worldview that perfectly mirrors a New Age mindset: God is everything and everything is god. There is no personal creator.

A theme of ecological disaster permeates their rhetoric and sets them up as our saviors. They claim we are destroying the earth and it is their job to stop us.

The question is: Are these 'aliens' from other planets or spiritual entities from another dimension?

A wise man once said: Only when studying God's truth can you discern what's right or wrong, true or false, profitable or foolish.

The Nephilim

So, exactly who is piloting these UFOs anyway? Are they really beings from outer space? Before we can answer that question, it is necessary to give a little background information first. Please bear with us a moment.

We believe there is a definite connection between angels, demons, and aliens.

Angels are creations of God and have real, physical bodies that look similar to our bodies. In fact, there are numerous times throughout the Bible where angels are mistaken for people. But they are able to manifest attributes that we don't have, such as changing their appearance and appearing and disappearing at will. There are two groups of angels: Holy angels and fallen angels.

Way back, long before God created mankind, there was a rebellion in heaven headed by the Archangel Lucifer. A third of the angels chose to follow him rather than God, so God booted them out of heaven. Often, the terms 'fallen angel' and 'demon' are used interchangeably, but that isn't correct. Demons are entirely different. They don't have physical bodies. They are disembodied spirits.

Okay, so did God create demons?

Not exactly. Demons are disembodied spirits of a deceased Nephilim.

What's a Nephilim?

The Nephilim are the offspring of fallen angels and the daughters of men mentioned in the very controversial Genesis 6 passage. "...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" (Genesis 6:1-2).

The word 'daughters' clearly means female children of human parents. The 'daughters of men' were simply women, in other words.

The 'sons of God' refer to an entirely different group from either the 'men' or the 'daughters of men'. The term occurs elsewhere in the Bible and clearly means 'angels' (see Job 1:6).

The term 'sons of God' in Hebrew is 'B'nai Ha Elohim--Sons of Elohim, a term consistently meaning 'angels' throughout the Old Testament. Ancient rabbinical texts and early New Testament translators agreed the term refers to angels. Up until the fifth century A.D., there was no question that the text meant: fallen angels procreating with human women.

Why the controversy? Apparently, it became politically incorrect.

Words to the Wise:

Make a conscious decision to choose God's Way. You can trust that He will stand by those who stand by Him. And remember: God created time so that everything wouldn't happen all at once.

Power, Signs and Lying Wonders

According to a recent Gallop Poll, 48% of Americans believe in UFOs. 15% believe they've seen one.

Has everybody gone crazy or is there a Biblical explanation? We believe there is.

The endtimes will be characterized by deception, remember? "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken." (Luke 21:25-26)

Imagine, if you will, open alien contact. And what if those 'aliens' claimed to be our creators? Would that shake your faith? Perhaps not, if your faith is well-grounded. But what about the millions unfamiliar with Biblical truth? For those who don't believe in the spiritual realm or who aren't schooled in the doctrines concerning angels, fallen angels and demons, an 'alien' visitation might look pretty convincing.

The Bible says, "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception." (2 Thessalonians 2: 9-10)

Although there are ancient myths and legends regarding strange visitors, the first wave of modern sightings began in 1947, just one year before Israel became a nation. Could there be a connection? Again...we believe there is.

Consider for a moment the fact that our adversary, the devil, knows Bible prophecy better than most scholars. Back in 1947 he (Satan) sees the world gearing up to give the Jews a homeland. He recognizes the profound prophetic implications, so what does he do? He sets into motion his endgame of spiritual deception.

We believe there is a hidden agenda behind the UFO phenomenon. Jesus warned us there will be great deception in the last days "and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs in the heavens." (Luke 21:11), M-m-m, could there be a connection?

To be continued...

Endtime Deception--Part 2

What do you get when you blend Christianity, pantheism, Eastern religion, mysticism with a dash of New Age philosophy? A recipe for disaster!

The Bible tells us that the endtimes will be characterized by false teaching and deception. Even what passes for the church will grow lukewarm and lethargic, (Revelation 3:16), with a watered-down, seeker-friendly version of the Gospel that has no place for Jesus.

We are no longer a predominantly Christian society. In fact, anti-Christian sentiment so permeates our public schools, one would think the mere mention of Christ (or God forbid!), the Ten Commandments, might actually corrupt young brains. The end result is a people ignorant of biblical truth and polluted by sin. The pursuit of a secular life without God leaves a spiritual vacuum that will, of necessity, be filled with deception. Take God out, and an empty, lost society will fill the void with something. Drugs, alcohol, materialism or some false religion are all popular options.

The Bible predicts that a time of spiritual apostasy will precede the end and pave the way for the arrival of the Antichrist. The word apostasy comes from the Greek word apostasia which means, literally, "to defect, or to forsake the faith."

Most evangelicals believe this apostasy is the product of a false Christianity--people who claim to be Christian, but who don't follow Christ. This false Church will have only the appearance of Godliness, but deny the power of God to save. They will be devoid of the Spirit and of truth. They will be counterfeits.

The false religion of the last days will be a combination of: corrupted Christianity, pantheism, Eastern religion, mysticism, and New Age blather all tossed together into one big fat grand DECEPTION.

Buyer beware.

Words to the wise:
Test everything against the truth of God's Word. The more familiar you are with the "real thing"--Scripture--the easier it becomes to spot a phony.
