THE FIRST COMPREHENSIVE BIBLICAL STUDY OF THE NEPHILIM
OFFICIAL BOOK TRAILER
“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.” – Genesis 6:4
6,000 years ago a war began. A war to rule Heaven and Earth that dates all the way back to the Garden of Eden. In the Garden, God told Satan that one day a woman would give birth to a male child – the Messiah, who would redeem humanity and destroy him. In order to prevent this child’s birth, Satan instigated a fallen angelic rebellion. A group of angels broke off their allegiance to the Lord and entered the earthly realm to corrupt the human gene pool and prevent the Savior’s birth. These fallen angels (“sons of God”) took human wives (“daughters of men”) and had children with them. Their offspring – hybrid half-human, half-angelic beings, were superhuman giants known as the Nephilim. With human DNA corrupted and humanity hanging in the balance, The Lord unleashed a punishment against the Nephilim so severe, only Noah and his family would survive.
This is the first comprehensive Biblical study of the Nephilim. Using only Scripture, we are given a complete picture of the war between two bloodlines – the lineage of the Messiah and the seed of Satan. Exploring passages rarely connected to the giants, some of the most challenging questions in the Bible regarding the Nephilim will be answered, including:
- Why did Pharaoh order all male children to be thrown in the river and Herod execute all male children in Bethlehem?
- What was the Biblical location where angels entered the human realm? (Hint: not Mt. Hermon)
- How were angels able to reproduce with human women?
- Who was the first human woman to marry the “sons of God”?
- Who was the fallen angel who fathered the Nephilim and ruled the preflood world?
- What was the specific timing of the punishment of the Sons of God and the Nephilim?
- How did the Nephilim return after the Flood and are there still Nephilim among us?
All these questions will be answered and many, many more. This is the story of God’s enduring love for all people and His promise to bring redemption through the blood of the Savior. This is the Judgment of the Nephilim.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Why did you write this book?
Although there have been a number of books written on the Genesis 6 account, none have done so from the perspective of a comprehensive Biblical examination. Judgment of the Nephilim uncovers startling revelations from Scripture regarding the Nephilim from passages rarely connected to the events of Genesis 6.
Q. Why does that matter?
In ancient Hebrew culture and first-century Christian thought, the Old Testament was the basis of religious belief. There are many exciting revelations and passages about the Nephilim that are rarely discussed or examined today. They are all fully explored in Judgment of the Nephilim.
Currently, there is a great deal of excitement around extra-Biblical or pseudopigraphical accounts of the giants. But what has been largely overlooked is the treasure trove of Christian and Hebraic writings on the Nephilim. Judgment of the Nephilim explores this rich history to uncover remarkable findings regarding the Sons of God, giants and the Days of Noah. This book references and cites dozens and dozens of writings on fallen angels, the Genesis 6 rebellion and the Nephilim – going back to the first-century Church Fathers and Jewish philosophers all the way through the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Q. Do you reference extra-Biblical texts like the Book of Enoch, Book of Jasher, etc. in this book?
Yes. They are referenced only for comparison sake. The conclusions regarding the Genesis 6 account, antediluvian and postdiluvian Nephilim are all based on Scriptural exegesis.
