The Fallen Angels & Nephilim
Book of Enoch: Chapter 6-8
”And Semjaza, who was their leader,…”
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 tens.
”And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives,..”
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 Fallen angels that were cast out of heaven & the 200 Angels that descended upon Mount Hermon, turned their eyes on the daughters of man and fell into sin. They came in unto them and they bore children called the Nephilim.
(Giants/Seed of the Serpent)
The Fallen Angels mating with the daughters of men
The Fallen Angels mating with the daughters of men was controversial and eventually censored by the early church fathers of Christianity due to the impending celibacy of monks. However, it has survived through Jewish rabbincal traditions and is mentioned by historians and biblical writings in the Christian canon.
*The apocryphal texts are not to be taken as biblical canon. However understanding the history of ancient Jewish teaching helps us gain a broader picture of what may have happened. Some of the missing or grey information(stories) in the bible can be illuminated by some non canonized sources which are not exclusively ‘inspired texts’ but still hold some validity to them. *
*It is important to note that these teachings were widely spread, accepted by the early church fathers up until the 4th century. (due to celibacy of monks and angel worship) Also the Book of Enoch was not accepted into biblical canon partly because of its controversial teaching of angels. In the end whether you believe in it or discard it as a whole is irrelevant, what really matters is that you have the saving faith in Jesus Christ.*
Most of the Nephilim were cannibalistic, vicious and greatly feared for their size and strength. The Nephilim spread rapidly and both man and giant were full of corruption. The Nephilim were intended to wipe out the bloodline of God, and God saw no other way but to cleanse the earth of its evil. After the Great Global Flood, 200 angels descended upon Mount Hermon to teach man righteousness.
Instead they fell into sin with the daughters of man after taking on the form of flesh. They gave birth to the Seed of the Serpent again, teaching man all sorts of forbidden arts. They produced Giants that inhabited and roamed the earth, the Nephilim even occupied the Promised land. In the Old Testament, they were called Anakims, Raphaims, Zamzumims. Many ancient Jewish sources tell us about the fall of the Angels in heaven and the ones who fell coming upon the earth.
This was a prophecy of Gods bloodline triumphing over satans offspring. It firs signified David whom God chose to slay the remnants of the Nephilim in the natural(flesh) and it was Jesus who would later conquer the Spiritual Giants of sin(spiritual)on the hill of Golgatha. This is also where the Philistine Goliaths skull was believed to be buried hundreds of years before by David.(Golgatha means Hill of the Skull in Hebrew and is interpreted in 2 ways, hill where the skull of Goliath and possible Adam and or the shape of a skull on one side of the hill)
Josephus the famous Jewish Roman Historian talked about the remains of the Nephilim that were on public display in his time. He says that it was common understanding that Giants previously inhabited the world during his time. These Giants stood from 10 to sometimes 30 feet in height, some Nephilim had 6 fingers and 6 toes. Some Nephilim had 2 rows of teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. Famous excavations and discoveries of Giants have been found all over the world, most notably in Ireland, USA, Canada, Europe and all over the Middle East. Native Indian tribes wrote down the account of Red headed double rowed Nephilim that were wild and canabilistic. The tribe eventually stood up against them and set fire to a cave they inhabited, as a result they died, modern day authorities searched the cave finding accurate remains from the accounts of the native tribes. Many legends and myths that we have today are adoptions and variations of the original stories of the fallen angels on Mount Hermon. The Bible and another ancient Jewish sources reveal to us that after death the Nephilim become just spirits, possibly the demonic spirits that inhabit the spiritual realm of earth today.

Why Would Satan Do This?
King James Version (KJV)
6 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.
”…were of old, men of renown…”
Here’s one for your “Forbidden Archaeology” file.Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912. The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit College and it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture. But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone’s concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings.
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) The fact that they were giants, is also proof in and of itself that their parentage was superhuman. But these giants were evil. Having been born of corrupted, Satanic angels they dominated the Earth and filled it with violence. 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, 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.
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.
This pronouncement was historic. God proclaimed that the means by which Satan would ultimately punished and destroyed would be through the seed of the woman. (It must be remembered at this point that our enemy, Satan is a far older, and vastly more powerful and evil being, so this prophecy was a serious pronouncement). 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 Chris. Satan was put on notice. From then on he set out to corrupt or destroy an 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. They dominated the Earth with war, bloodshed and their pagan religion (which will be covered in Part 2 of this series).
The Nephilim giants spread violence and sin that: “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.” 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 God judged the Earth with the flood.
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 pastors, Bible scholars and Bible skeptics alike view the flood as God’s way of dealing with humanity after humanity just sinning too much. However, with all due respect, this is a very simplistic way of looking at the flood. After all, today’s society is just as corrupt and depraved, if not far worse than any era before (more people have been killed in war in the past century than in the prior 900 years). So why would such a global judgment only 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 3 chief purposes: 1) To destroy the Nephilim giants. 2) To punish the angels who committed the illicit relations with women and make an example of them so that no other angels would ever attempt this again and 3) to save humanity from certain destruction.
Much more than the “over-reaction by an angry God” as skeptics like to paint it, the flood was God’s way of preserving the human race and its bloodline, before it became completely corrupted by the Nephilim giants. This is an important point: many people today point to the flood as “proof” that God is cruel and angry with humanity all the time, and willing to just kill millions of people in genocide on a whim. However 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 for all people.
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, 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 hybridization that was plaguing humanity. The Hebrew word for “perfect” in that verse is tamiym, which means “complete, whole” with reference to health and physical condition. This is the same word used to describe the condition of animal sacrifices to the Lord:
And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. – Leviticus 22:21.
Thus Noah, his three sons and their wives were able to survive the flood and re-start humanity. But unfortunately, the Nephilim giants returned.
Nephilim Giants After The Flood
Noah and his family survived the flood. But the Nephilim gene came with them.
“ There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that…” — Genesis 6:4
The verse above makes it clear that Nephilim giants returned after the flood. Now nowhere in scripture is it again written that angels ever cohabited and/or 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 and his sons were 100% human, we are not told the same about the wives of his 3 sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth. What is clear is that one or more of these women were carrying the Nephilim gene. This is the source of the post-flood Nephilim. Nowhere in the Bible is it ever stated that angels once again cohabited with human women.
The first time Nephilim giants are mentioned by name after the flood is in Numbers 13 after the Exodus in which Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt to go to God’s designated Promised Land. Moses sent 12 spies to scout out the land in advance. 2 of the spies, Caleb and Joshua spoke of the land in glowing terms and urged the Israelites to enter and rightfully claim the land God had promised them. But the other 10 spies had a different opinion:
And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. 32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 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.
We will discuss this extremely important passage in much more detail below but a few things should be noted. First off the giants living there were descendants of specific person named Anak. This description, where a Nephilim is referred to as “[name] who was born of the giant..” shows that the Nephilim hybrids after the flood were the offspring of other giants and not angels (this will be explained in greater detail in Part 2). And in Numbers 13, the giants the spies saw were the sons of the Nephilim giant Anak.
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 how was it that they knew to be in the exact place that God was going to send His chosen people to, namely the land of Canaan? The answer starts with the lineage after the flood.
The Bloodlines of the Nephilim
The Bible provides a specific geneology 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 among Noah’s sons, Ham was by far the most wicked.
“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.
From the first time Ham is introduced, he is described as “the father of Canaan.” Notice none of his brothers get any similar distinction. Whenever special descriptions are included in a genealogy in Scripture it is the Bible’s way of saying something significant happened with this particular event. And the student of the Bible should search the Scriptures to find out what that event could be. In this case, it is clear that Canaan carried the Nephilim gene. This could only happen through his mother, Ham’s wife, having the Nephilim gene herself, since we know Noah in all his generations was 100% human. If Ham were wicked and not a follower of God, the odds of him taking a wife who was a part of the Nephilim hybrid pagan culture was much higher (B&E: also note that throughout Scripture, men who fell into sin often ended up marrying wives who worshiped false gods; for example, Solomon or King Ahab). And from what the Bible details, Ham was no follower of God. In fact, he was involved in an inappropriate incident with Noah that led to a curse:
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 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.
The details of this incident are somewhat vague but going by Scripture alone, it can be concluded that Ham, out of evil intent, looked at his father’s nakedness and then made it public. The Hebrew term for “without”, chwuts, means “outside, in the street.” But the evil of this sexually immoral act is again repeated by the Lord as a general principle for all to follow:
Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD’s right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory. –Habukkuk 2:15-16.
Shem and Japeth, righteous children of Noah, show a contrast as they seek to respect their father’s dignity by not looking upon, him and carefully covering him. Ham’s sin was so severe that it resulted in his youngest son Canaan becoming the second person in the Bible record to be cursed (the first being Cain, the wicked son of Adam and Eve).
That Ham was wicked (there is no record of him ever repenting for this sin) would make it more likely that he would marry a woman from a pagan family who would be carrying the Nephilim gene.
Nephilim DNA Through the Flood
(B&E: Special thanks to reader Rick for raising this question). If it were not already clear, the reason why God permitted the Nephilim gene to make it on to the ark is because of human sin. We can never forget the role we play in human affairs. If humans sin, they will be judged. If they do not follow God’s ways, they invite sin and its inevitable destructive force. Ham was not a follower of God and he was judged for his sinful rebellion via his wife. As will be seen in Part 2, the Nephilim nations after the flood are at various times used by God as judgment against the Israelites for their disobedience. We are all responsible before God.
Part 2 will also review Noah and the world he was living in. 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 pre-flood world was a very unique place. Noah’s family was well aware of this and that it’s root was satanic, hence Noah being a “preacher of righteousness.” Ham rejected God’s righteousness and God’s ways to forge his own. This was solely Ham’s fault. James chapter 1 outlines the process of sin in one’s heart:
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. – James 1:12-15.
Ham was drawn by his own lusts to the pagan, sinful world. He knew the right way to live because the Bible states that Noah was a “preacher of righteousness.” Noah and his family were completely aware of the Nephilim hybridization taking place and Noah clearly made efforts to live separate from this. Despite having the most Holy man on the planet (literally) as is his father, Ham had no faith in God. This always brings in sin to a person’s life. We can never forget that when looking at any Biblical account. God could have certainly killed Ham’s wife or told Ham “she’s corrupted” but it is this author’s thinking that Ham did not care about what God had to say because Ham was not a follower of God. Ham had a choice. And he chose to reject God.
There are many examples of this in scripture. Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and right up to the Promised Land but could not enter. Why not? Because of his sin. King David brought the ark to Jerusalem where it was supposed to be all along but could not build the temple for it. Why not? Sin. King Solomon had the most prosperous reign in all of Israel and yet led to the nation dividing and ultimately being conquered. Why? Sin. Sin provides the backdoor for Satan to enter and execute his next move in the chess match between he and God. Let this be a lesson to the reader: Satan is relentless in his quest to corrupt and destroy you. And if he cannot get to you, he will happily enter your life through a child or family member. Ephesians 4 states:
“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness…Neither give place to the devil.” – Ephesians 4:22-27.
We are renewed in the spirit when we have salvation in Jesus Christ. And we are not to leave any space in our lives for Satan to enter. Satan entered the space of the ark because Ham invited him.
The Curse of Canaan
What is interesting is that Cannan of Ham’s three sons, was the one cursed. Why? Why is Ham distinguished as “the father of Canaan”? Is it possible that Canaan was already showing the appearance of being part Nephilim? This is not stated in scripture, but we will see a similar distinction made for another infamous hybrid being below. What we can know with certainty that it is from the line of Ham that we find the resurgence of the Nephilim giants.
By comparing Scripture with Scripture, the lineage of the post-flood giants can be traced specifically to three of Ham’s sons, Cush, Mizraim and Canaan. The Bible is full of lineages and the Bible student should take note that they hold significance in bettering our understanding of Scripture. The first grandson of Ham who receives special designation in Genesis 10 is King Nimrod.
Nimrod led the tower of Babel rebellion.
And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan. And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city. – Genesis 10:6-12.
Was he a Nephilim giant?
Just as Canaan received a special distinction in his genealogy, Nimrod gets several extra verses! Clearly this is someone of special significance. Nimrod was the first murderer and conqueror in the post-flood world. He was the founder of the city of Babylon which became a center of pagan, satanic idolatry, much of it with various versions of Nimrod himself being worshiped as a god. His name, which means “to rebel” or “let us rebel” indicates his disposition. He was an enemy of God and at the time was Satan’s main servant on Earth. He is credited for leading the effort to build the tower of Babel, a religious temple used to access the angelic realm through pagan ritual. The Tower of Babel was also the first attempt at a global government, led by Nimrod and an attempt for man to reach the spiritual realm and “godhood” without The Lord (to which God swiftly responded by destroying the tower, confusing the languages of all the people of the world and scattering them all over the Earth). Was this grandson of Ham possibly a Nephilim?
It is interesting to note is that the verse 9 states that Nimrod “began to be a mighty one in the earth.” The term for “mighty one”, gibborim, is the same Hebrew phrase used to describe the Nephilim giants in Chapter 6 of Genesis who were “mighty men”. It is also the same term used to describe the giant Goliath in 1 Samuel 17:51. Was Nimrod a Nephilim? In mythology, Nimrod is known by many names, among them Gilgamesh and Osiris, who were worshiped as gods. In Sumerian texts he is described as “2/3 god, 1/3 man.” The Hebrew word for “began” in the verse is chalal, which means, “to profane, desecrate or pollute oneself, begin, ritually or sexually”.
Matthew Henry’s Bible commentary on this passage states:
That which is observable and improvable in these verses is the account here given of Nimrod, v. 8-10. He is here represented as a great man in his day: He began to be a mighty one in the earth, that is, whereas those that went before him were content to stand upon the same level with their neighbours, and though every man bore rule in his own house yet no man pretended any further, Nimrod’s aspiring mind could not rest here; he was resolved to tower above his neighbours, not only to be eminent among them, but to lord it over them. The same spirit that actuated the giants before the flood (who became mighty men, and men of renown, ch. 6:4), now revived in him, so soon was that tremendous judgment which the pride and tyranny of those mighty men brought upon the world forgotten. (source)
The final piece of evidence to consider is that in the Septuagint, the oldest version of the Old Testament, the same verse from Genesis reads:
And [Cush] begot [Nimrod]: he began to be a giant upon the earth. He was a giant hunter before the Lord God; therefore they say, As [Nimrod] the giant hunter before the Lord. – Genesis 10:8,9 (LXX)
So from just the text of scripture it appears that through some form of defilement and/or occult ritual, Nimrod. the grandson of Ham, was transformed into a giant. This would not be the only time a human king was transformed into a different creature. Please note that in Daniel 4, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, was literally transformed into a “beast” and lived as an animal for seven years. And this was at the pronouncement of “watchers” and “holy ones” (the same type of angels that are named as being involved in the Genesis 6 illicit relations in extra-biblical texts like the Book of Enoch). (B&E: There is much more to write on Nimrod and his role in Bible scripture that will be covered in a forthcoming article. In the meantime, we strongly encourage the reader to research and explore this figure).
Casluhim and Capthor
And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim. – Genesis 10:13-14.
Ham’s son Mizaraim also contributed to the Nephilim lineage. In verse 14 we have the first mention of the Phillistines (whose forefather was Phillistim), the nation of the giant Goliath. Calshuhim was the father of Phillistim and his family later resided in Capthor in the Promised Land. So we see the direct origins of the Philistines, one of the most heated enemies of the Israelites, who also carried the Nephilim gene.
In fact, as will be shown, the Philistine nation was the final “hideout” for the remnant of the Nephilim giants. And they can be traced back to Casluhim, the son of Mizraim and grandson of the evil Ham.
The name of Canaan should be the most familiar as it was the land that bore his name that was the Promised Land that The Lord reserved for the Israelites after they escaped out of Egypt thanks to God miracles and the leadership of Moses. The fact that they were in the Promised Land the Israelites were supposed to inhabit was no coincidence! The Philistines were worshipers of demons, fallen angels and Satan. And the Nephilim giants among them were working to attack God’s chosen people. Canaan’s line contains many of the enemies of God:
And Mizraim begat Ludim, And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth, And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, — Genesis 10:14-16.
The Jebusites, the Amorites and Gegusites, all cousins of Nimrod, are mentioned time and time again with reference to the Israelites capturing the Promised Land. These families were usurpers in the Promised Land and carried lots of the Nephilim gene. This is once again why God had to deal mercilessly with these nations. It cannot be stressed enough that the Nephilim threatened not only the existence of the human race itself but the ability of an all-human Messiah to eventually be born as well. Note God’s instructions to Moses on how to battle against these children of the cursed Canaan:
When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. — Deuteronomy 7:1-3.
Notice that God describes these nations as “greater and mightier than thou” to the Israelites. The physical and military advantage was clearly on the side of the enemies of God – the nations that were home to the Nephilim giants. But what gave the Israelites the ultimate edge was that The Lord Himself was going to supernaturally intervene early on in the conflict to deliver the enemies of Israel so they could be defeated. This point is not discussed enough: God fought against and defeated the early post-flood Nephilim. This shows the severity of the matter. The Lord was no longer allowing these superhuman, powerful hybrids to dominate humanity. Thus He not only says to wipe out these nations, but makes a specific point of prohibiting any marriage between them. God was bringing the spread of the Nephilim genes to an end.
Lord willing, at this point it is clear that giants did indeed exist in the Bible and in large number. Satan, who has constantly sought to stop God’s plans and destroy the souls of humanity, used a select group of angels to interbreed with human women and try to corrupt human DNA. By altering humanity from being no longer fully human, Satan could ensure that a pure human Messiah would never be born. To counter Satan’s offensive, God sent the global flood judgment to punish those angels who committed folly, destroy the Nephilim and save the existence of the human race. The flood ensured the Messianic bloodline was preserved so that we could have a chance to go to Heaven. It was as an act of love of mercy on God’s part to save a people that had rejected him to follow Satan’s minions and their God-given powers.
The bloodline of the Nephilim after the flood can be clearly traced to Ham, Noah’s evil son who brought a curse upon his own child, Canaan. But this is just the beginning. In Part 2, “Nephilim Giants – Enemies of God in the Bible” we will continue to examine the post-flood Nephilim lineage from the perspective of the righteous men of God who fought against them throughout the Old Testament in the continuing chess match between God and Satan and the Sons of God against the seed of the Serpent. The article will also look that as the number of Nephilim giants on the Earth decreased, they soon became smaller in size. And we will reveal a modern occult mystery so secret even Wikipedia states it do not have the answer for it! These and other revelations will be detailed, all of this from the pages of Holy Scripture…Visit beginningandend bible study
Races of the The Fallen Angels
God told the Israelites, that when you come into the land to destroy all these races of GIANT people.
They were seeds of entities other than humans entirely, and they would eventually wipe out all of the human race if they were not destroyed and drastic measures had to be taken.
These an entire races of giants/Aliens mentioned in the Bible.
• Were Rephaites (Gen 14:5-6) meaning they were giants descended from Rapha, a subgroup descended from the Nephilim
• Lived in the “hill country of Seir” (Gen 14:6; Deut 2:12) a region of Edom
• Were defeated in Abraham’s day by King Chedorlaomer (Gen 14:5-6)
• Were later destroyed by “the descendants of Esau,” the Edomites (Deut 2:12,22)
• Mentioned only once at the end of a list of Rephaites (Deut 2:23)
• Lived in the coast land of southern Canaan in villages near Gaza (Deut 2:23)
• Were destroyed and replaced by the Caphtorites (ancestors of the Philistines who arrived from the island of Cypress/Caphtor)
• Race of “renown heros” resulting from the sexual mixing of angels (sons of God) with human women (Gen 6:2)
• “Heros” in Gen 6:2 were not necessarily good people
• Nephilim were “heros” in the same sense that Goliath was called a “hero” of the Philistines (1 Sam 17:51)
• This resulted in offspring of exceptional size and strength (Num 13:33)
• This giant race aggravated the exceptional wickedness of men living before the flood and was a factor in God’s decision to “wipe mankind from the face of the earth” by a flood (Gen 6:5-7)
• Angels continued siring Nephilim with human women even after the flood (Gen 6:4) which explains why descendants of the Nephilim resided in Canaan
• According to Jude, Enoch son of Jared, before the flood, in the 7th generation following Adam, stood firm against an explosion of wickedness among men that led to angelic intervention (Jude 14-15)
• Since the sort of wickedness to which Jude refers required angelic intervention, it may well have concerned the Nephilim
REPHAITES or REPHAIM or DESCENDANTS OF RAPHA
• Initially referred to descendants of an individual giant named Rapha, and then became general term for several giant clans living in the region of Canaan
• Rephaites were Nephilim because the Anakites (a clan of Rephaites) are identified as Nephilim (Num 13:33)
• Rephaite clans included the Anakim, the Emim, the Zamzummim, the Horites, and the Avvites
• Were in the region of Canaan during Abraham’s day (Gen 15:20)
• Several Rephaite clans were defeated by King Chedorlaomer in Abraham’s day (Gen 14:5-6)
• Og, King of Bashan, is identified as the last individual “remnant of the Rephaites” (Deut 3:11). But since other giants after Og are also referred to as Rephaites, this reference most likely means that Og was the last
“There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
So, who were these GIANTS, these REPTILIANS descendants of Anak?
ANAKITES or ANAKIM or SONS OF ANAK
• Were Rephaites (Deut 2:11) meaning they were giants descended from Rapha, a subgroup descended from the Nephilim
• Were giants descended from the Nephlim (Num 13:33)
• Were “people of great size” (Num 13:32)
• Were “stronger and taller” than regular people (Deut 1:28; 9:2)
• Were all descendants of a giant named Arba (Josh 15:13; 21:11)
• Were descendants of a giant named Anak who lived in southern Canaan (Num 13:22,28)
How many GIANTS were there? THOUSANDS! Probably millions
12 individual named giants mentioned in the Bible
• Early ancestor of all the giant clans in what became the region of Palestine, which included the Anakites, Emites, and Horites (Deut 2:10-12; 2 Sam 21:16,18,20,22; 1 Chron 20:4,6,8)
• Father of a clan of giants living southern Cannaan (Num 13:28)
• Forefather of Anak and the Anakim (Josh 15:13; 21:11)
• Honored as “the greatest man among the Anakites” (Josh 14:15)
• The Anakite name for Hebron was Kiriath-Arba meaning “City of Arba” (Josh 15:13)
• Because Debir was an Anakite city like Hebron (Josh 11:21), and because the former Anakite name for Debir was Kiriath-Sepher meaning “City of Sepher,” it must be that Sepher was the name of another Anakite patriarch like Arba (Josh 15:15)
•The king of Bashan identified as the last of “the Rephaites” (Deut 3:11)• Since other giants after Og are also Rephaites, the reference most likely means
that Og was the last pure blooded (100%) giant sired by an angel mixing with a human woman (see explanation of the Nephilim)
• Bashan where Og ruled is in the region of Mount Hermon, and that according to the book of Enoch is where angels sired the Nephilim
• Og is the largest giant mentioned in the Bible—his bed was 13.5 feet long meaning Og was himself about 13 feet tall (Deut 3:11)
• Og with his army attacked the Israelites east of the Jordan in a battle at Edrei while they were still commanded by Moses (Deut 3:1-11)
• Og was defeated and killed and his territory was assigned to the half-tribe of Manasseh
• A descendant of Arba and Anak who lived in Kiriath-Arba (later named Hebron) when Israel invaded Canaan (Num 13:22)
• One of 3 giants driven out of Hebron by Caleb (Josh 15:14; Jdg 1:10,20)
• A descendant of Arba and Anak who lived in Kiriath-Arba (later named Hebron) when Israel invaded Canaan (Num 13:22)

• One of 3 giants driven out of Hebron by Caleb (Josh 15:14; Jdg 1:10,20)
• The “champion” of the Philistine army opposing the Israelites under Saul (1 Sam 17:4)
• Was 9 feet tall, wore armor weighing 125 pounds, and spearhead weighed 15 pounds (1 Sam 17:4-7)
• Was descended from the Anakim giants whom Joshua allowed to survive in Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod (Josh 11:22)
• One of the giants living in Gath
• The brother of Goliath
• Was killed by one of David’s men named Elhanan son of Jair
• Used a spear of similar size to one used by Goliath (1 Chron 20:5; 2 Sam 21:19)
• One of the giants living in Gath with the Philistines in southern Canaan
• Was killed by David’s nephew Abishai, son of David’s sister Zeruiah, who rescued David when this giant went after David during a battle between the Philistines and Israelites (2 Sam 21:15-17,22)
• Used a spearhead weighing 7.5 pounds (2 Sam 21:16) which was merely half the size of Goliath’s spearhead
SAPH also called SIPPAI

Regions where giants lived:
The “region of Argob” in Bashan ruled by Og the giant king (Deut 3:4)
Anakites were scattered throughout the “hill country of Judah and Israel” (Josh 11:21)
The main Anakite centers were the cities of Hebron (formerly Kiriath-Arba), Debir
(formerly Kiriath-Sepher), and Anab in the hill country of Judah (Josh 11:21)
Some Anakites also lived in the coastal plain region with the Philistines in the cities of
Gaza, Gath and Ashdod (Josh 11:22)
Emim lived east of the Jordan river in a region of Moab (Gen 14:5; Deut 2:11)
Zamzummim lived east of the Jordan river in the region of the Ammonites (Deut 2:20)
Horites lived below the Dead Sea in the “hill country of Seir” (Gen 14:6; Deut 2:12) a region of Edom
Avvites lived in the coast land of southern Canaan in villages near Gaza (Deut 2:23)
The place where a coalition of eastern kings led by Chedorloamer, king of Elam (in the
region of Persia) defeated the combined armies of several giant clans was named Shaveh-
Kiriathaim (Wasteland of Kiriathaim). This place is a valley located in the high plain
above the Arnon River east of the Dead Sea in the region of Moab (Gen 14:5)
* Emim (“the fearful ones”)
* Rephaim (“the dead ones”)
* Anakim (“the [long]-necked ones”)
