WHO WERE THE NEPHILIM (Part 2)

A further difficulty seems to be that the offspring were only men; no “women of renown” are mentioned. (Was there a chromosome deficiency among the Sethites? Were there only “Y” chromosomes available in this line?).

Consider carefully what this view proposes. It assumes that God placed a prohibition on intermarriage between the line of Seth and the line of Cain.

However, some of the men in the line of Seth fell in love with and married some women from the line of Cain (though nothing is said of the sons of Cain marrying the daughters of Seth). For some obscure reason, this upsets God so much that He destroys the inhabitants of the earth because of this intermarriage.

In recent times there has been some controversy surrounding the origin of what the Bible calls the Nephilim. The verse in question here is found in Genesis 6: 1-6.

  1. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
  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.
  3. 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.
  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. width=
  5. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
  6. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

There are three common views on the identity of the “sons of God” (“Bene Ha Elohim”) marrying the “daughters of men” in Genesis 6:1-4:

  1. Descendants of Seth married descendants of Cain.
  2. Nobles married commoners.
  3. Angels married human women.

The Nephilim Controversy

Very few people seem to realize that the Nephilim theory is a Neo-Gnostic, New Age teaching and an emphatic denial of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ’s incarnation.

Genesis 6:1-7

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.

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Please note that the words “men” and “man” appear no less than ten times in this passage. That alone indicates that we’re dealing with normal human beings and not fallen angels.

Nonetheless, some venture to call as witnesses Job 1 verse 6, 2 verse, 1, Jude 1 verse 6 and even Genesis 18 to prove that the sons of God were not human beings but fallen angels who entered into a marital relationship with the daughters of men and spawned children of flesh and blood (Nephilim; giants).

The Nephilim – The Truth about the Sons of God, the Daughters of Men

NephilimA while ago I posted an article on the Nephilim stating that I did not believe that the Nephilim were demonic offspring.  I then deleted the article because I became uncertain if I was indeed correct.  Since then I have been searching for the truth and I am happy to say I have found the TRUTH.  The reason I am so passionate about the answer to this question is because of the rise in interest in the supernatural, i.e, aliens, trans-humanism etc.  There are stories running abound that during the tribulation demons will be free to do as they please on earth, producing offspring like the Nephilim.  The bible is very clear that we are to not let our minds be captured by occult imagination because when human minds get hold of unbiblical ideas it runs free and causes all sorts of havoc.

Nephilim

By Pastor Anton Bosch – www.antonbosch.org

The Hebrew word Nephilim is translated “giants” in the Old Testament. It only appears twice in Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33.  A whole series of doctrines have been built around this word, in spite of the fact that the word only appears rarely. These doctrines on the Nephilim are based on Genesis 6:1-4.(It must be noted that most speculators lean very heavily on extra-biblical writings for most of their information.) The theories can basically be summed up as follows:
