CHAPTER 12--The Fallen Angels & The Giants
We have covered the fall of Satan, that “cherubim that covereth” when he tried to dethrone our Father in the first heaven/earth age. This spiritual entity, that God Himself, created in the full pattern of splendid beauty. This is the first recorded attempt by Satan to control Heaven and all of creation.
His punishment for this attempted coup d'etat will be a spiritual death shortly after the Great White Throne judgment when he, his angelic followers, and all of those souls that did not overcome him in THIS heaven/earth age, will walk into the Lake of Fire, as described in the 20th chapter of the Book of Revelation, and have their souls destroyed forever.
If this frightens you, it well should, because we're not playing church here, this is some very serious stuff that cannot be canceled out with a slap on the back of your hand. Can you see the big picture, that this life that you live is just a minute part of ALL that Father has done?
You existed eons ago, well before your soul was put in that earthly body you walk around in today, and it's soooo important that you inform yourself, at least basically and minimally, as to what His Plan is all about and it's NOT His plan for little 'ole you, but for His entire creation.
I just felt that that needed to be said. I hope that you grasp the enormity of how and what your actions, day to day, will affect your entry into the Eternity or, heaven forbid, that you walk into the Lake of Fire along with Satan.
Alright, enough said.
In the Book of Genesis, we found out that Satan successfully seduced Eve and she bore twin boys who would be named Cain and Abel. Abel would be of the progeny, the child, of Adam and Cain would be the progeny, the child, of Satan.
This becomes quite clear when you examine Adam’s genealogy in Genesis, chapter five, and Cain’s genealogy in Genesis, chapter four. Satan’s reason for doing this was to pollute the bloodline that was to come from Adam and Eve, through which the Savior would be born.
Abel would be murdered; Cain would move to the land of Nod and become the leader of the Kenites, and the unpolluted bloodline of Adam and Eve would go on through the birth of their son Seth.
But Satan isn’t through yet.
Remember back to that first heaven/earth age when truly one-third of all of God’s created souls and spirits fell in with Satan at the katabole’? And our Father’s Plan after that was to have each soul and spirit come into this heaven/earth age through the womb of a woman; to choose individually, whom they would follow; our Father or Satan.
Out of the one-third of all the angels that chose to follow Satan in that first heaven/earth age, there would be seven thousand who would disobey God and in the Book of Jude, verse 6, we have the beginning of the account of what happened.
Jude 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation,
They “left their own habitation” means that they left heaven and came down to this earth, not as human beings but as the angels that they were and their goal was to try to pollute the bloodline of Adam and Eve by seducing their daughters. These angels are called “sons of God” in Genesis:
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.
And the offspring, the progeny, the children of these marriages were called Nephilim, they were also called "giants" or "men of renown". The root word for Nephilim is “napha” and it means “to fall”. I want you to get this right real good: the children of the union between these angelic beings, angels, and the human women were called Nephilim.
If you will remember that I said, back in chapter 1, that the spiritual body and the flesh body were very similar; that the flesh body could eat angels’ food, manna; that you might be eating with an angel and not be aware of it.
These bodies are so similar that, in fact, a union between them will result in a superhuman, half spiritual, and half flesh body. I’m not trying to say that the progeny, the offspring, the children will be perfect because it wasn’t.
The genetics of it all produced six-fingered hands and six-toed feet, just to mention a few of the abnormalities. Think of Goliath when you think of these giants. It has been said that the bed that Goliath slept in was eighteen feet in length.
The word “Nephilim” is translated as “giants” and we have it in Genesis 6:4:
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.
They were superhuman in strength and knowledge. The knowledge that they retained was of everything that had happened in the first heaven/earth age. That veil that we have in our minds, that doesn’t permit us to remember our actions in the first heaven/earth age, is not in their minds.
There is no veil to obscure those memories. They had full knowledge. And they had to be destroyed. Their destruction was necessary for the human race to survive.
There were actually two eruptions of these creatures as can be determined by reading, again, Genesis 6:4;
Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that,
For the words, “and also after that” indicate that the first influx had not been killed off entirely as the flood of Noah’s time had been intended to achieve. This is why I mentioned earlier in this book that I personally did not believe that the flood of Noah covered the entire earth because it was intended to kill off a certain species in a particular area and not the entire human race.
Let me add, however, that all peoples in this area, including the giants, were to be killed with the exception of Noah and his family. Dr. Bullinger believes that some of these giants escaped to other lands and thus the reason for the second influx. Dr. Bullinger’s views on this substantiate my thoughts that the flood was a regional or local event.
This influx of these abnormal, superhuman beings was not a world-wide event. It was particular to the Middle East region for obvious reasons.
These giants were in the land of Canaan, the Promised Land. They had multiplied and split off into different groups according to Genesis, chapter 15, verses 18 through 21:
Genesis 15:18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
Genesis 15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
Genesis 15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
Genesis 15:21And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
They were called Anakin in the Book of Numbers, chapter 13 and verse 23:
Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
(To give you a general time frame on these "giants", the angels left heaven, in Genesis chapter 6, around 2450bc, and we just read of them again in the Book of Numbers, the general time frame of 1450bc. A difference of about 1000 years.)
Don’t pass over that, they were so big that the Israelites felt as small as grasshoppers compared to them. In the Book of Numbers, chapter 13 we find the account of Moses and the Hebrew children and their dealings with our Father just before they were to be led into the Promised Land.
They were instructed by God to choose one leader from each of the twelve tribes and to send these twelve men into the land of Canaan to “spy it out” and see exactly what was there and if it was indeed a land of milk and honey.
They were gone for forty days and when they returned they spoke of the giants that were there and how huge and terrible looking they were. And the people became frightened and began to cry and wail.
And this really ticked our Father off for He had promised them that they would be successful in their attempts to take the land over and settle there, they would win the upcoming wars with these people and He would stand behind them if they only had enough faith.
They didn’t have enough faith.
In response, our Father told them that it would be another forty years before He would allow them into the Promised Land and that this present generation would die off before that happened. Thus we have the forth years of wandering in the desert.
And after this period of time, when they were allowed to enter the land, instead of killing and literally destroying the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Amorites and the rest of these abnormal beings, they made friends of them and signed contracts of agreement and began to trade with them.
So, what happened to the seven thousand angels who created this situation that nearly destroyed the human race? In the Book of Jude, verse 6 it states:
Jude 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.
They are held in chains, figuratively speaking of course, until Judgment Day. Where are they being held? The Book of 2nd Peter will tell us:
2nd Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
The word “hell” that is used in this verse is the Greek word Tartarus or tartaroo. This can be seen in Dr. Strong’s Concordance as:
✡ Hell_NT: 5020 tartaro/w tartaroo (tar-tar-o’-o); from Tartaros (the deepest abyss of Hades); to incarcerate in eternal torment.
In Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, it is called a subterranean region that is doleful and dark.
When Jesus was in the tomb for three days and three nights, He went to the “spirits in prison”, not to preach to them as some believe, but to proclaim to them His victory over death. They will walk into that Lake of Fire that is spoken of in the Book of Revelation, just as Satan will, but at this point in time they have not been judged or sentenced; they are simply being held awaiting judgment.
Nor are we through with them for they will be released, for a short time, along with the Antichrist, in the near future and I will explain that later on in this book. Dr. Bullinger, the translator of the Companion Bible, has made some observations concerning these Nephilim and they are:
● If the scientific community would recognize these Nephilim it would go a long way in solving problems associated with anthropology.
● These “men of renown” would give us the explanation for the existence of Greek Mythology; that this mythology was not just a mere creation of someone’s mind.
● It would explain how the huge stones were moved to build the Egyptian Pyramids which has perplexed engineers for many years.
Satan is extremely powerful. Sometimes his ways are very subtle and sometimes they can change the course of history. Make no mistake about it: he is not something that you need to be fooling around with.
The image that some people have of Satan is of him dressed in red long-handle underwear with a tail and a pitchfork in his hand is pure nonsense. Nothing could be further from the truth and it brings a smile to his face when he hears the biblically-illiterate refer to him in this manner.
