The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. (Emphasis mine, and throughout.)
We talked about the serpent seed in previous articles, here and learned, perhaps for the first time, what the sin in the Garden really was. That because Eve became pregnant with twins by both the serpent (Cain) and Adam (Abel), (Heteropaternal Superfecundation), the descendants of Cain had the serpent bloodline. This is the beginning of divergent bloodlines, where the human DNA is corrupted with serpent DNA. The goal, of course, being the destruction of man so Messiah cannot come.
Is this “other” DNA a possible reason why the daughters of men were open to the idea of procreating with the fallen angels? Perhaps. It is this coupling (human and angel) that produced the Nephilim, or giants – a distinctly new creation, not in concert with God’s order of each with its own kind, and forever divided human genetics from this corrupted, hybrid line.
(Og king of Bashan was the last of the Rephaites. His bed was decorated with iron and was more than nine cubits long and four cubits wide [14′ long by 6′ wide]. It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.)
This means Og was two to three times the height of the average man.
And Ishbi-Benob, one of the descendants of Rapha, whose bronze spearhead weighed three hundred shekels and who was armed with a new sword, said he would kill David.
In still another battle, which took place at Gath, there was a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot—twenty-four in all. He also was descended from Rapha.
We can trace the giants back to Canaan, a son of Ham, one of Noah’s sons.
Now the most famous story of a giant is that of David and Goliath, in 1 Samuel 17.
A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span [9′ 9″]. He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels ; His spear shaft was like a weaverʼs rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him.
David shouts at the giant taunting the Israelite army that he has defied the army of Almighty God, and that the Lord God will deliver Goliath into his hand, for the battle is the Lord’s.
Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherdʼs bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.
Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.
Goliath’s head is believed buried on Golgatha (David brought it to Jerusalem). Jesus was crucified on Golgatha, the place of the skull, between the two thieves. Jesus’ center position at the crucifixion is said to be the pineal position*. The pineal gland is deep in the brain, between the eyes (the two thieves). So 28 generations after David buried the head, Jesus dies in the pineal position at the place of the skull, with Goliath’s head buried at his feet. We know it is 28 generations because of the accounting in Matthew 1:17.
We go back to the Garden, as God assigns each one their punishment, He says the seed of the woman will crush the head of the serpent.
I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.
The phrase “seed of the woman’ is strange because only a man has seed. So this verse speaks of the woman’s descendants, and one in particular — Jesus. We have the juxtaposing of Jesus, the woman’s seed, and the seed of the serpent, the giants. Jesus’ sacrifice took place 28 generations after David. 28 days is the number of a woman’s cycle, then she gets her period – the sacrifice of that particular egg that was unfertilized. God overlayed significant spiritual events onto our human anatomy, so that we can know who He is, who His Son is, and that He has planned this from the beginning. (Enterthe5t4rz has amazing videos of the eye as the womb.)
Genesis 6:4 is the Bible’s response to other scripture, that Rob Skiba affectionately refers to as the synchronized, biblically-endorsed, extra-biblical texts, of Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees.
* Much of my research on the anatomical analogies with spiritual realities (i.e., the overlay of spiritual truth with the human body) has come from EntertheStars. His Youtube videos are interesting and thoroughly Christian.
