There has been much controversy over the legitimacy of UFO appearances and what all of these sightings mean. While most Church leaders have
correctly pointed out the demonic aspects of the ‘alien’ phenomenon, the larger ramifications of this deception for the Church have been missed or
ignored. The Church should be asking “why now?” and “what does this stepped up ‘alien’ visitation mean for the Church?”
It should be noted that this deception is not new and ‘aliens’ have appeared in drawings from the ancient Sumerian culture to the present. Tales
of visitations from ‘heavenly’ beings abound in the legends of just about all cultures, as do tales of half-human mixed with ‘the gods’
hybrids with super human strength and abilities. Indeed, monolithic structures have been found around the world that man could not have made, even
with the technology available at present.
Of significance is the fact that the first modern documented UFO sighting was by Kenneth Arnold on June 24, 1947; slightly less then a year later
Israel became a nation once more and UFO sightings skyrocketed in number. For the first time numerous of these sighting left “trace evidence”, or
could be physically proven to have ‘mass’ from confirmed radar hits. Furthermore, these ‘aliens’ were becoming emboldened enough to attempt
terrestrial contact with humans for various reported reasons.
While politicians and theologians struggled with answering the genuinely frightened or concerned, and the fringe elements of the UFO conspiracy
theorist, many biblical scholars began to suspect a connection between UFO’s and obscure English scriptural references with underlying Hebraic
meanings that had been poorly translated in Genesis:
Gen 6:2 the sons of God (translated as ‘angel’ elsewhere) saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves from
all whom they chose. 3 And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, in his erring; he is flesh. Yet his days shall be a hundred and
twenty years. 4 There were giants (‘nephilim’ or literally the offspring of angels and humans, ‘that cause others to fall’) in the earth in
those days. And also after that, when the sons of God (translated as ‘angel’ elsewhere) came in to the daughters of men, and they bore to them,
they were mighty men (literally ‘powerful’, ‘giant warrior’, ‘tyrant’) who existed of old, men of renown (literally ‘a conspicuous
The Talmud mentions that the Nephilim, or Rephaim Anakim ("the long-necked dead ones) had no souls, and thus could not be resurrected. Some biblical
commentators reasoning that this could be the difference between ‘fallen angels’ and ‘demons’ that are disembodied spirits with none of the
physical powers ascribed to angels. The Talmud notes that Nephilim had supernatural strength and knowledge, but were largely killed off by the flood.
It also relates a tale of one of these ‘beings’ sneaking aboard Noah’s Ark, which could be the reason that some of the giants survived post
What is interesting to mention at this point is that the Smithsonian’s Institute has long been accused of hiding archeological evidence of
‘giants’, but that Institute had refused to either confirm or deny this, that is until the remains of several were documented in India, Sudan and
Sub-Saharan Africa. Then sketchy details were released to the Mormon Church under a Freedom of Information request. Once this happened the flood gates
opened, and any one who wishes to view documented evidence of giants can search ‘Nephilim’, ‘return of the Nephilim’, or ‘giants and
Nephilim’. Not only is there released photos taken by the museum in the late 1800’s, but many news reports and documentary videos. The evidence is
voluminous and overwhelming.
Then came the discovery of fragments of the Book of Enoch with the ensuing fight of the fragments validity by Church theologians who had struggled
against the more literal reading of Genesis 6. Once again that is until an almost extant copy of the Book of 1 Enoch was found among the Dead Sea
Scrolls. This of course gave an almost canon like validity to this book due to the fact that the Essene scribes would never have protected a book they
had considered less than canonical. Further strengthening this argument is that 1 Enoch is quoted in the Bible:
“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment
upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches
which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” (King James Version, Jude 1.14-15, quote from 1 Enoch 1:9).
So then, what does the book of Enoch say about the Nephilim? What will this mean for Christians and the Church? Interesting 1 Enoch quotes below give
pause to those who study prophecy:
1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto 2 them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels,
the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men 3 and
beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not 4 indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to
pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations 5 not
to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves 6 by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all
two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn 7 and bound
themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel,
Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, 8 Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaq1el, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of
1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile
themselves with them, and they taught them charms 2 and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they 3
became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed 4 all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no
longer sustain them, the giants turned against 5 them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and 6 fish,
and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.
1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of
working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all 2
colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their
ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the
constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon.
And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .
The above quotes answer the historical anomaly of the ancient Sumerian and Pre 1st Dynasty Egyptian cultures that appear from the archeological record
to have sprung from nothingness into greatly advanced cultures, seemingly overnight. They also hint of the origins of genetic manipulation, advanced
pharmacology, bestiality, advanced metallurgy and weapons production. Indeed, these fallen angels brought the ‘enlightenment of knowledge’ and
rebellion against God. The Nephilim (also called "the watchers" from where 'witch', or wife of watcher' came from) return…
Matthew 24:37 because just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be when the Son of Man comes.
