"I told you we have some Nephilim blood in us." My son Elijah told me last week, after listening to his grandmother's story. Well I have heard the same story before with my sister during our bonding time when we were just little kid. As I grew older, I categorized that story as purely for our entertainment or to make us stay still. Like ghost stories of manananggal, kapre, aswang, vampires, nuno-sa-punso, etc... so that adults can have control over little naughty children.
Now that I am older I have to confirm the story to my mother. Well, she wouldn't tell white lies anymore simply to entertain me now that I am older. But to my surprise she confirmed what she had said many years ago..."Of course it was all true...my father had super power and can carry a Cow in just one hand, climb a coconut tree, and let the animal fall to the ground to die...that was when he and my mother were arguing then. I saw it myself."
So I stop asking.
Returning to my son. You know how little boys and girls imagine things like our belief in fairy tales and legends or tales of incredible powers. This world would be boring if we suppress ways to escape from reality once in awhile.
I encourage my children to explore and imagine things but I always make sure that they can separate the mystic universe against the real material world. I like them to imagine like George Lucas or Steven Spielberg but also remind them dangerous lies and things like Santa Claus. I have killed Santa Claus on their memory since they begun to utter words.
I told them Nephilim are real. This is often considered a fantasy to the rest of the world but a truth recorded in the Bible (Genesis 6:1-4). Like me, they were often ignored by their peers but this same people would believe in ghost and vampire. Intrigue why it was when the Bible speaks of incredible things people will dismiss it easily as legend or folklore like Samson and the Gideon 300 when all this story is verified even by historian. Now, what really amuses me is they will believe lies like 3 Kings of Nativity and Evolution Theory.
1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3And 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.
4There 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.
You wouldn't want to be children of Nephilim, I told my son.
The Nephilim (plural) are the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" in Genesis 6:4, or giants who inhabit Canaan in Numbers 13:33. A similar word with different vowel-sounds is used in Ezekiel 32:27 to refer to dead Philistine warriors.
Probably rooted from Hebrew word npl which means "to fall"; "to cause to fall" and "to kill, to ruin"...A Nephilim is now generally known as offspring of "fallen angels" and sometimes translated in Bible passages simply as Giants.
Some believed that the Great Flood did not totally wiped out the Nephilim, as the report of Joshua's spies seeing the descendant of this giants.
32. And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size.33. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them." -- Numbers 13:32-33
Ezekiel 32:27 speaks of "the fallen mighty (gibborim nophlim, גִּבֹּורִים נֹפְלִים) of the uncircumcised, which are gone down (yardu, יָרְדֽוּ) to the grave with their weapons of war"; a change to the vowels would produce the reading gibborim nephilim.
Even if the term Nephilim was not used by some Ancient Biblical Authors, for unknown reasons we can still easily recognized that it is speaking of the same superhuman hybrid.
In Amos 2:9, Yahweh reminds the prophet that he "destroyed the Amorites before you, whose height was as the height of cedar trees"
The story about fallen angels, or Extra-terrestrial beings and Alien, to those that do not quantify the bible as source to this long standing fable (?) that cohabit with the human race and eventually have children...seems to be tied up with other ancient legends and mythologies too. The stronger that I believe there is factual reality behind the story. Now, what I need to do is separate the fact from fictions. There's the story of Apkallu, Anunnaki, Incas, or the Planet Nibiru, The Sumerian Sages, etc...Even the Australian aborigines believe they came from flying saucers.
A common denominator with these legends are that these Beings from Heavens are credited with giving mankind the moral code, the crafts, and the arts. (Again, when Elijah saw the word "arts" the more he strengthen his faith that he had Angelic gene inside him thru generations with me (the artist) and from the story of his grandmother about her father (supra man). I think he was just frustrated sometimes when he can't do what he want to do like draw a picture or the double back flip somersault that he been practicing lately. Sometimes, I would tell him joke, that was because he only have a small percentage of the Anakites blood and his sister Elyona Jean had more of the artistic superhuman blood) I also noted among ancient myth a common depiction of a flaming vehicle or chariots of fire. The same vehicle that took Elijah and Enoch to heaven without seeing death? Now, I personally believe these two prophet can describe to us the complete picture of alien if they were alive today.
Stories of Alien abductions came from different time, era, epoch, and cultural backgrounds...and what troubling me was the fact that we still can hear quite a good number of people in our generation testifying that they have been abducted by alien or have seen UFO. So what's really is up there, why NASA didn't return to the moon? How about the rovers in Mars, why the images aren't coming more often than before?
There are also the recent Ancient Astronaut Theorist who believe the sons of gods of Genesis were just extraterrestrial beings trying to manipulate earth and its beings. One day, they said, the league of universal justice or inter-galactic force (somewhat United Nations of the Universe) will have its judgment day on these Scalawag (troublemaker) Aliens who prey on lesser advance planetary civilizations, therefore they said, the Armaggedon of Heavenly Forces.
The "Anunnaki" are the major players in a paradigm making its way into popular folklore, via the work of the late Zecharia Sitchin, an economist by education and profession, and the author of several best-selling books, including Genesis Revisited, that explore ancient mythology and the mysterious megalithic ruins found around the globe. These various books also seek to demonstrate that there was in ancient times an extraterrestrial race that genetically manipulated mankind for various reasons. The Sitchin thesis ("Sitchinism"), now embraced by numerous other writers, who have incorporated it into what is apparently a new worldview, essentially asserts that these ancient Sumero-Babylonian gods, the Anunnaki, are aliens from the planet Nibiru (Sitchin's "12th Planet"), which passes by the earth every 3,500 years or so, at which time they planet-hop to the earth and create mischief.

Much have been told and re-told about these fallen angels (what I prefer as the Bible affirms) mingling, making trouble, indoctrinating, and eventually disrupting human existence...must be something to be investigated. The Book of Enoch speak so much about these angels and the judgment to come to them almost the same time with Human Judgment hour or tribulations.
There would be an increase of these fallen angels activities in the last days, as they know very well that they don't have much time left.
Speaking of The Book of Enoch, someone told me why the Book was not included in our Modern Bible because it speaks of the truth. Come to think of it; early Christians and even the Old testament people refer to this book. The more that I suspect how fallen angels actively works in our lives even today.
Evolutionist Missing Link?
These are the missing link the evolutionist are not telling us. When archaeologist dug up bones of dinosaurs they herald it on science journals but when they discover human giants they hide it. Why? It is unfair. Anyone who held information about the truth are liars. And liars go to where?
I am sure on Jesus Christ return He will re-write our history books and science journals. He will make the record straight once and for all.
Here's a question that we better spend some inner thinking "Where will you be when History repeats itself?"
Jesus said his return will be like the days of Noah. Men eating, drinking, partying, and lots of fallen angels and their children dwelling among us...
Don't you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life. - 1 Corinthians 6:3
