It is written:
Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 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. 3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 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 6:1-4)
In this passage of Scripture, the Bible teaches us about the giants (nephilim) that were on the Earth. These beings were the offspring of the fallen angels (sons of God-cf. Job 1:6; 2:1-4; 38:4-7 to see that this particular phrase had reference to angelic beings in the time of Moses) and human beings. They brought such devastation upon the Earth that they were destroyed by God in the Flood.
However, this passage (and others) teaches that there were also giants in the world after the Flood.
How did these giants come back into the world?
There are three answers to this question.
First, it is likely that (through the use of sorcery and witchcraft) the ancient peoples were able to bring forth the needed changes within themselves and others to make them nephilim (i.e., giants).
For example, the Bible tells us about Nimrod:
Genesis 10:8-Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.
In Genesis, the phrase “mighty one” was synonymous with the nephilim.
“The story of Nimrod in the book of Genesis may illustrate how this could happen through genetic engineering or a retrovirus of demonic design that integrates with a host’s genome and rewrites the living specimen’s DNA, thus making it a “fit extension” or host for infection by the entity. Note what Genesis 10: 8 says about Nimrod: And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. Three sections in this unprecedented verse indicate something very peculiar happened to Nimrod. First, note where the text says, “he began to be.” In Hebrew, this is chalal, which means “to become profaned, defiled, polluted, or desecrated ritually, sexually or genetically.” Second, this verse tells us exactly what Nimrod began to be as he changed genetically—“ a mighty one” (gibbowr, gibborim), one of the offspring of Nephilim. As Annette Yoshiko Reed says in the Cambridge University book, Fallen Angels and the History of Judaism and Christianity, “The Nephilim of Genesis 6: 4 are always… grouped together with the gibborim as the progeny of the Watchers and human women.” And the third part of this text says the change to Nimrod started while he was on “earth.” Therefore, in modern language, this text could accurately be translated to say: “And Nimrod began to change genetically, becoming a gibborim, the offspring of watchers on earth.”[ 75] Bible commentator Adam Clarke seems to agree with Dr. Horn’s conclusions by quoting the Syraic Targum regarding Nimrod: “The Syriac calls him a warlike giant.”[ 76] Then Clarke continues to share about Nimrod and the building of the Tower of Babel and its connection to giants: On this point Bochart observes that these things are taken from the Chaldeans, who preserve many remains of ancient facts; and though they often add circumstances, yet they are, in general, in some sort dependent on the text. 1. They say Babel was built by the giants, because Nimrod, one of the builders, is called in the Hebrew text גבור gibbor, a mighty man; or, as the Septuagint, γιγας, a giant. 2. These giants, they say, sprang from the earth, because, in Genesis 10: 11, it is said, He went, מןהארץההוא min haarets hahiv, out of that earth; but this is rather spoken of Asshur, who was another of the Babel builders. 3. These giants are said to have waged war with the gods, because it is said of Nimrod, Genesis 10: 9, He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; or, as others have rendered it, a warrior and a rebel against the Lord. See Jarchi in loco. 4. These giants are said to have raised a tower up to heaven, as if they had intended to have ascended thither.[ 77] Nimrod achieved something that only the Watchers of old had accomplished, yet he took it to a whole new level. In fact, no one has been able to reproduce this highly revered occult achievement. This cutting-edge breakthrough of Nimrod has been the goal of all secret societies, alchemists, wizards, sorcerers, warlocks, and Illuminati elite throughout the millennia. You see, he was a fully grown man who was able to become a gibborim (another type of Nephilim)—he was not born that way. It would appear that Nimrod took the arcane knowledge of his family line and pushed it beyond what the Watchers themselves could do: He was able to alter his DNA and become a Nephilim. This transmogrification must have thrilled the kingdom of darkness. The fallen angels of Genesis 6 required the use of women in their genetic breeding program. Nimrod accomplished this alchemical feat without the use of a woman’s womb. This is important to note, because the Word of God in Daniel gives us a hint that the Antichrist will be able to reproduce the dark magic of Nimrod. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (Daniel 11: 37) Some have speculated that this refers to the Antichrist being a homosexual. Although it is true that most within the occult are bisexual (for use in ritual magic), I believe this is a prophetic clue linking the coming man of sin with Nimrod. This powerful working of dark magic and esoteric wisdom will be reproduced one more time in human history.” (Michael Lake & Thomas Horn, The Shinar Directive: Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition’s Return, 1446-1482 (Kindle Edition); Crane, MO; Defender)
It is possible that through witchcraft and dark sorcery, the nephilim were able to come back into the world after the Flood.
Second, another possibility is that the nephilim were brought forth and recreated through scientific experimentations of the ancient world. This theory is strengthened when we realize that ancient texts outside of the Bible reference the descendants of Noah recreating experiments that the fallen angels (i.e., the Watchers) and their descendants (the Nephilim) were involved in before the Flood.
“For millennia, the ancient books have told the story of a Creator who made heaven and earth. He gave his creations free will, and many of them chose to rebel against Him: a third in heaven and two on earth. Then some time later when people had multiplied on the earth, some of those who rebelled came to earth and mated with human women, giving birth to giants. Those monsters were killed in the Flood of Noah; however, after the flood they reappeared. The Books of Enoch and Jubilees tell us that men bent on rebellion and power used the records written on stone left by the antediluvian world and quite possibly the genetic material of the rotting carcasses of the giants to make more monsters. They were the primal transhumanists.[ 4] And giants were reborn upon the earth. They were not as big as those before the flood; however, many still dwarfed humans. Soon, they created their own tribes and settlements, and began preying on everything around them in order to exterminate pure humans. So, the Creator had to call for their eradication because they corrupted everything they touched. These stories have never been redacted. Their tenets have never changed. If anything, they have been reinforced by the discoveries of the last century such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. This is the record left for us in the Bible and other ancient books such as the Books of Enoch, Jasher, Jubilees, and the works of Josephus. Many native peoples also have these stories in their folklore. The Bible continues to confirm itself.” (L.A. Marzulli, Daniel Wright, Rose Diepstra, On the Trail of the Nephilim, Volume 2: New Archaeological Research, 5-6 (Kindle Edition); Spiral Of Life Publishing)
Ken Johnson has elaborated on this in fascinating detail:
“Jubilees 10.1-12 informs us that after the flood evil spirits began afflicting many of Noah’s descendants. Noah prayed to God to bind all of the demons away from men. God bound nine-tenths of the demons, leaving only one-tenth to tempt and torment man. Revelation 9 tells that the other nine-tenths will be released during the Great Tribulation. If the angels are bound, and the Nephilim are disembodied spirits, where did the giants after the flood come from? A third rebellion? No. The story continues: Genesis tells us that after the flood Noah divided the planet among his three sons. Ham was given what we call Africa and Shem, the middle east. Canaan, Ham’s son, left his territory and ventured North along the Mediterranean Sea. Why did Canaan travel all the way up the cost to found Sidon, his first city, in an area he knew was not his territory, then quickly settle another city (Tyre)? The map at the right shows that those two locations are the closest he could get to mount an expedition to Mount Hermon. He wanted to find information about the pre-flood giants! And Canaan grew, and his father taught him writing, and he went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city. And he found a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers in accordance with which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs of heaven. And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it. Jubilees 8.1-5 After finding the writing containing the science of the Watchers, Canaan sought to create a race of warrior giants using the same type of genetic tampering which was done before the flood. This explains how the giants came to be, but with a few problems. Second Samuel 21: 20 describes giants with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. Moses led the children of Israel into battle with Og, the king of Bashan, who being a true giant, stood at least twelve feet tall (Deuteronomy 3: 11). Bashan was anciently called the Land of the Giants. Og actually reigned from Mt. Hermon (Joshua 12: 4-5), the place where the angels descended. Even up to King David’s time, Goliath remained (1 Samuel 17: 4). He was one-quarter giant and three-quarters Philistine and reached only nine feet, nine inches tall. Another race of giants were the Anakim (Numbers 13: 21-33). Some of the Amorites were as tall as a cedar tree (Amos 2: 9), probably referring to the sons of Anak. Other giant races found in the Old Testament included the Emim (Deuteronomy 2: 9-11), and the Zamzummim (Deuteronomy 2: 20-21). The Anakim, Emim, and the Zamzaummim were all equally tall. The valley of Hinnom was anciently called the Valley of Giants (Joshua 15: 8; 18: 16). Joshua destroyed all the Anakim except for a giant that escaped to Gaza (Joshua 11: 21-22), the later home of Goliath. David’s men killed Goliath’s brother and one other son of the giant (2 Samuel 21: 20-21). In four hundred years time the giant out bred, so that Goliath and his brothers were only nine feet tall instead of thirteen feet tall. The Genesis 6 word for giants (Nephilim) occurs in only one other place: Numbers 13: 33. These same post-flood giants who are called Nephilim in Numbers, are referred to as Rephaim in Deuteronomy 2: 11 and Genesis 14: 5. These passages show that the post-flood giants were a special kind of Nephilim called Raphaim. This means they were not the procreation of another angelic rebellion, but a genetic tampering by man in a similar fashion as the angels did in the pre-flood world.” (Ken Johnson, Ancient Book of Enoch, 182-184 (Kindle Edition)).
A third possibility to consider is that through the use of witchcraft and specific occult objects, people were able to allow the demonic spirits of the Nephilim to animate the bodies of the living (i.e., they willingly offered themselves up to possession).
Ezekiel 13:17-18-Likewise, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people, who prophesy out of their own heart; prophesy against them, 18 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Woe to the women who sew magic charms on their sleeves and make veils for the heads of people of every height to hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of My people, and keep yourselves alive?”
Delving into this text reveals some disturbing facts.
“The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel made an important statement about “magic bands” (kesatot), which were cryptically used to dispel (magically eject) the souls of men in order to replace those spirits with resurrected ones from the dead (as in the Rephaim or dead Nephilim). Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save [Hebrew, chayah, “restore to life”] the souls alive that come unto you… to slay the souls that should not die, and to save [restore to life] the souls alive that should not live…? Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your [Kesatot, “magic bands” used for binding and loosing souls], wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly [Parach, “to fly away,” or alternatively “to sprout up from out of the ground”] and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly (Ez[ ekiel] 13: 18b–20). (emphasis added) The kesatot was a magic arm band used in connection with a container called the kiste. Wherever the kiste is inscribed on sarcophagi, it is depicted as a sacred vessel (a spirit prison?) with a snake peering through an open lid. How the magic worked and in what way a spirit was ejected and replaced with a spirit from the dead is a mystery (unless, again, modern occultists have these demonic incantations in their possession today). Pan, the half-man/ half-goat god that guarded the entrance to the “gates of hell” at the base of Mount Hermon—beyond which the Rephaim (dead Nephilim) were imprisoned—is sometimes pictured kicking the lid open and letting the snake (spirit?) out. Such loose snakes were then depicted as being enslaved around the limbs and bound in the hair of the Bacchae women, the servants of the demonic god Dionysus. Whatever this imagery of Pan, the serpents, the imprisoned spirits, and the magic kesatot and kiste actually represented, a noteworthy verification of the magical properties represented by them is discussed in the scholarly book Scripture and Other Artifacts by Phillip King and Michael David: In the closing verses of Ezekiel 13 the prophet turns his attention to magic practices whose details remain obscure. Two key terms are kesatot and mispabot.… The kesatot are worn on the arms, while the mispabot are made “on the head of every height” (?), which has been understood to mean “on the heads of persons of every height” [including those of great height; giants, offspring of the Watchers].… In modern times archaeological discoveries and texts from Babylonia in particular have shed further light on what might be involved: G. A. Cooke cited Hellenistic figurines from Tell Sandahannah (Mareshah) in Palestine with wire twisted around their arms and ankles… and a magical text from Babylonia that speaks of white and black wool being bound to a person or to someone’s bed.… J. Herrmann [notes] that both words can be related to Akkadian verbs, kasu and sapabu, which mean respectively “to bind” and “to loose.” Herrmann also drew attention to texts in which these verbs were used in a specifically magical sense.… This indicates that, whatever the objects were, their function was to act as “binders” and “loosers” in a magical sense, in other words as means of attack and defense [of spirits] in sorcery.[ 48]”. (Thomas R. Horn & Josh Peck, Abaddon Ascending: The Ancient Conspiracy at the Center of CERN’S Most Secretive Mission, 118-120 (Kindle Edition))
Just as the Bible teaches that the nephilim were in the world before the First Judgement (i.e., the Flood), so the Bible teaches that the giants will return before the Second Coming.
Isaiah 13:3 (Brenton’s LXX)-I give command, and I bring them: giants are coming to fulfil my wrath, rejoicing at the same time and insulting.
Ezekiel 39:18-You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, Drink the blood of the princes of the earth, Of rams and lambs, Of goats and bulls, All of them fatlings of Bashan.
The spirits of the demons are in the world still, fighting against the church and enslaving mankind until the Return of Christ.
Are you prepared to fight-and to win-the Good Fight?
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Amen.
