Nephilim Bloodlines

The Origin of the Nephilim

Gen 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.

Gen 6:5 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.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

The “sons of God” is the Biblical name for angels and these particular Angels refers to some of the ‘Fallen’ Angels who took human women as their wives. And their children, half-human, half-angelic hybrids, were the Nephilim giants. (Please note that the ‘Fallen Angels’ in this document do not refer to the 3rd of the Angels how were cast out with Satan)

And then we see the children of these sons of God and daughters of men were “mighty men” and of “renown” They were also “giants” Something in their genetics made them super-sized super-strength and super-intelligent hybrid people. And it was their angelic parent genes.

Again, we must keep searching the Word of God to make certain of meaning. The Bible is self-confirming and one passage of Scripture can always be confirmed by another. We see the term “sons of God” next used in the book of Job chapter 1 which reads:  “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, from going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” (Job 1:6-7)

The scene being described, where God is literally meeting with the ‘sons of God’, took place in Heaven. This is a Divine Council that God holds where He chooses to meet with both good and ‘evil’ angels to discuss affairs of the world (for more examples of these assemblies see 1 Kings 22 and Psalm 82).

So again from the clear reading of the text, the “sons of God” are not human men but are in fact Angels, who are meeting in Heaven with The Lord. The third reference to the sons of God in the Old Testament is again in Job, but this time in chapter 38. God who in this is posing questions to Job about the creation of the universe says:

“…Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;  When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” — Job 38:4-7

So the sons of God were with God and existed even before the Earth itself was created. Thus it can be concluded with certainty that the sons of God were angels.

Angels had sexual relations with Human women

Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.  In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:  It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying, Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?  Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his Angels he charged with folly: – Job 4:13-18.

The word “folly” in the Old Testament is used to describe sexual sin. Once again, we use Scripture to interpret Scripture. Here are several examples:

…And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob’s daughter: which thing ought not to be done. – Genesis 34:1-2, 7.

Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you. – Deuteronomy 22:21.

Come lie with me, my sister.  And she answered him, Nay, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly. – 2 Samuel 13:1-2. 11-12.

So here we see that certain untrustworthy angels were charged with the sin of “folly” for sinful sexual acts. In the Septuagint the verse from Job says: “he perceives perverseness in his angels” giving even more confirmation that there were sinful sexual acts committed by Angels.

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. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.  – Jude 1:6-8.

Here we see a reference to angels who left their “habitation” and are reserved in chains until Judgment Day. So which angels could these be? Clearly we should all agree that this is not a reference to Satan. Satan is not in hell. He is roaming the Earth seeking to destroy and deceive as many people as possible but fails hopelessly (see Job 2 again where the Devil says he was walking “to and fro” on the Earth). The Devil and the other fallen Angels who were not put in chains are on Earth doing spiritual work and also await their time of Judgment, but they have hope.

Nephilim Giant Offspring

By the measurements in Scripture, the original Nephilim offspring were quite larger than the average human.

The offspring from this illicit union between Angels and human women were giants who “became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” (Genesis 6) God has turned and is turning this from bad into good – which will become more evident. The fact that they were giants, is also proof in and of itself that their parentage was superhuman. But these giants were not of God. Having been born of corrupted Angels they dominated the Earth and together with our sinful human nature filled it with violence in those times. It is also interesting to note that the Bible calls them “men of renown.” The Hebrew word here, shem, refers to being famous and legendary. It is as if the Bible is indicating that when the reader hears of legends of “demigods”, titans or legendary heroes who were part god (Angel), that this is who those “myths” were referring to. These were ‘men’ of superhuman ability and strength. In addition to causing violence and sin in the world, the Nephilim were also corrupting the human bloodline.

Why would Satan instruct the some of the Fallen Angels to do this?

As it will be in the end times, much of the conflict centres around human DNA. After the sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden God pronounced a judgment on Satan:

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 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. – Genesis 3:14-15.

God proclaimed that the means by which Satan would ultimately be punished and destroyed would be through the seed of the woman. A human woman would give birth to a male child who would one day destroy the devil. This was the first prophecy of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. Satan was put on notice. From then on he set out to corrupt or destroy a God-fearing child as that could potentially be the prophesied Redeemer. To no surprise the first Godly child born, Abel, was killed by his wicked brother Cain. Cain was banished and Adam and Eve bore another son Seth. At his birth Eve declared: “For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.” – (Genesis 4:25).

As more God-fearing sons began to populate the Earth, Satan instituted his Nephilim plan into action. By corrupting the seed of the woman, Satan could prevent the birth of the Messiah, who of course, had to be human and not part fallen angel. Satan wants the Word of God to fail but he knew that in addition to the woman, God prophesied that Satan too would have a “seed” (v.15). Thus the Nephilim were an attempt to thwart God’s plan of salvation for humanity. At every step, the Nephilim giants, via their evil angelic parentage, sought to undermine or undo what God had set out for humanity to be reconciled to Him. In their dominance of the Earth, they reproduced so rapidly, God proclaimed that all flesh on the Earth had become corrupted except Noah and his wife.

Humanity was on the verge of being wiped out with no hope of being saved from sin if every person born became part fallen angel. Thus it pained God’s Heart as he had to judge the Earth with the flood. He knew before He created Earth it was going to happen yet it pained Him to do it.

The Purpose of the Flood in Noah’s Day

Rather than being an act of cruelty, the Flood was God’s way of saving the last of humanity from complete destruction. Many people view the flood as God’s way of dealing with humanity after humanity was just sinning too much. This is a very simplistic way of looking at the flood. After all, today’s society is just as corrupt and depraved. So why did such a global judgment happen in Noah’s day? The answer is that there were far more complex issues going on in the days of Noah then just humans sinning. The flood served 4 chief purposes:

1)    To save humanity from sin and help us not to all suffer eternal death: Gen 6:5  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.

2)    To destroy the Nephilim giants and other abominations created by the Fallen Angels. God allowed their gene to continue through Ham’s line due to Ham’s wickedness.
Gen 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.

3)     To punish the Fallen Angels who committed the illicit relations with mankind and make an example of them.

4)    And to cleanse the world of evil and pave the way for a clean bloodline for Jesus our Saviour to be born without any Fallen Angel blood/DNA in Him from Shem son of Noah’s line – He had to be a perfect sacrifice to GOD for our sin.

5)    To limit our lifespan down to only 120 years, thereby helping man to reduce the evil we individuals are capable of over long periods of time

Much more than the “over-reaction by an angry God”, the flood was God’s way of preserving the human race and its bloodline, before it became completely corrupted by the Nephilim giants. The Biblical Truth was that God sent the flood to preserve humanity and to make sure we could still receive the promised Redeemer who could save our souls. Without Jesus Christ, there is no hope. There is no future. There is no forgiveness. Meaning every person would spend eternity in hell. The flood was God’s way to keep that hope alive for all people.

Gen 6:9 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations (genes), and Noah walked with God.

Noah was chosen to carry on and re-start humanity after the flood because he was a believer in God. Additionally he was “perfect in his generations” which meant that his genetic bloodline and ancestry was 100% human. Noah had not been a part of the Nephilim. Noah, his three sons and their wives were able to survive the flood and re-start humanity. But the Nephilim giants returned.

Nephilim Giants after the flood

“ There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that…” (Genesis 6:4) This verse makes it clear that Nephilim giants returned after the flood. Now nowhere in scripture is it again written that angels ever had relations with human women after the flood. Genesis 6 was the only instance of this. So how did the Nephilim return? How could this have happened? The Bible holds the answer:

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.  And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. –Genesis 7:6-7.

While Noah, his wife and sons were 100% human, we are not told the same about his sons 3 wives. What is clear is that one Noah’s sons wives were carrying the Nephilim gene.

The first time Nephilim giants are mentioned by name after the flood is in Numbers 13 after Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt to go to God’s designated Promised Land Canaan. Spies were sent there and came back with this report: 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. – Numbers 13:31-33.

A few things should be noted. First off the giants living there were descendants of specific giant named Anak. This description “…who was born of the giant…” shows us that the Nephilim hybrids after the flood were the offspring of other giants and not Angels like before the flood. And they were so large that the Israelites spies were like insects to them. Additionally, these giants had special agricultural knowledge that they knew how to grow grapes so large that it took two Israelite men using poles to carry a cluster! So how did the giants return and end up in the promised land of Canaan? The answer is in the lineage after the flood.

The Bloodlines of the Nephilim

The Bible provides a specific genealogy and bloodline of the Nephilim giants after the flood that can be traced back to Noah’s own sons. What seems to be consistent with the presence of the Nephilim gene was an affinity for evil, due to their fallen angelic parentage.

“And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.” – Genesis 9:18.

It is clear that Canaan carried the Nephilim gene. This could only happen through his mother, Ham’s wife, having the Nephilim gene, since we know Noah was 100% human. Note that throughout Scripture, men who fell into sin often ended up marrying wives who worshiped false gods; for example, Solomon, Samson or King Ahab.

…And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. — Genesis 9:20-26.

By comparing Scripture with Scripture, the lineage of the post-flood giants can be traced specifically to three of Ham’s sons, Cush (Nimrod), Mizraim (Goliath) and Canaan giants.

If it were not already clear, the reason why God permitted the Nephilim gene to make it on to the ark is because:

1.)     Human sin in Ham who takes a wife of the Nephilim.

2.)     God was going to use this to show His Love for His people by defeating these ‘mighty’ giants and giving their land to His people. God deserves recognition for this act of Love, we should be encouraged in Faith.

3.)     Through the remaining Fallen Angel DNA in humans, God was going to show how His seed would continue growing and perhaps even give the Fallen Angels who are in chains until the Judgement the opportunity to repent.

Looking at 1 Peter 3:19 we see more confirmation: By which also He (Jesus) went and preached unto the spirits in prison (Fallen Angels); 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?

The Parable of the Weeds explained:
Mat 13:37-43 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man (Jesus or God); The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares/weeds are the children of the wicked one;  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the Angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his Angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 24:36 The Word says: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

The above definitely refers to the fact that people did not believe that the flood would happen, but it also could be refering to the world where there were giants walking around the Earth warring with nations, Angels openly being revealed and being worshiped as gods and all sorts of supernatural activity taking place. The Lord Himself was going to supernaturally intervene early on in the conflict to deliver the enemies of Israel so they could be defeated. God fought against and defeated the early post-flood Nephilim and His seed still does today in those of us that have it.
