Neph* Similarities and Meanings
Do the words giant and giants in the Holy Bible mean nephelim or nephilim?
Were the giants in the Holy Bible evil superhuman half demons, or other than human, or alien?
Did demons have sex with human females and then breed half human/half demon children?
Are angels or demons or aliens the sons of God?
It is my understanding and belief that the sons of God are NOT angels or demons or aliens.
It is my understanding and belief that the sons of God are simply the human children of mankind who walk after God and who obey God as the children of God would and should do.
I do NOT believe those who walk in God’s light are superhuman, but because they trust and believe in God it is God who is super and it is God by His Own power who makes humans seem superhuman.
It is satan who wants the world to believe the lie that evil spiritual beings could have sex with humans in order to make evil super human beings.
Satan wants to take away that which is God’s and make it appear to be evil or alien or satan’s.
The truth is that Godly men, who are the sons of God, began to look upon the beauty of evil women who were born and raised by evil parents and these evil women taught their children to be evil too.
These Godly men, these sons of God, did NOT seek God for the Godly women God wanted them to marry and with whom God wanted them to bear children.
Instead, Godly men looked upon the beauty of evil women and made the choice to NOT come to God asking God if they should bear children by these evil and beautiful women.
What happened when those evil women brought forth children by those Godly sons of God?
Those evil women taught their children evil ways, so many of the sons of God’s children became evil after being brought up evil by their evil mothers.
This grew worse and worse until the children of the sons of God became more and more evil, and such evil children began to outnumber the sons of God.
By the time Noah was born most of the children being born were increasingly more and more evil until there was continually only evil in their hearts and minds.
This is why God hated that He had created man upon the earth, because His sons of God chose their own way, and the recourse of choosing their own way was that their children chose the ways of their evil mothers and walked after their father’s selfish desires instead of choosing God’s way.
One fact that we must understand is if the sons of God were aliens, then they could have easily taken their children up off the earth in their spaceships safe from God’s flood during Noah’s time.
Also, if the sons of God were somehow evil spiritual beings then their children could have easily survived the flood.
The entire concept that the sons of God are somehow spiritually evil superhuman beings is exactly what satan wants people to believe today.
This entire concept was derived from the evil Arabic people who believe the nephelim or nephilim are genies or other spiritually super beings able to give ones wishes or desires, or super evil spiritual tricksters who could fool people instead of answering and giving their wishes and desires such as fairies, pixies, elves, warlocks, witches, and many other evil ideas dreamed up by satan and taught to many many different societies and cultures.
Many of these false beings are even given the status of gods or Gods by many ungodly cultures.
It is NOT God’s desire that Godly sons of God should choose their own way, but instead that Godly men choose to live the way God desires them to live so that their children might better also choose God’s way and live by God’s desires for them.
This way a Godly man child will grow up and desire to marry a Godly woman, and so a Godly woman child grows up wanting to marry a Godly man.
This way the children will have a better chance to decide to become Godly as well as their parents.
There is of course no way to predict if a child will choose to become Godly or not, even if both parents are Godly, but if both parents are Godly it is more hopeful that the child will choose God.
All humans are given free will by God, and it is ultimately up to the children to choose God’s ways over the ways of satan, or the ways of other evil people, or even their own selfish ways.
This is what Jesus meant when He said the last days will be as in Noah’s day, because in the last days more and more children and parents will not choose God’s ways as was the case in Noah’s day.
There are not nephelim or nephilim in the world today, and there were never any nephelim or nephilim on the earth in the days of Noah, or at any other time for that matter.
The only time the word nephelim or nephilim is used in the Holy Bible is in reference to a place called nephelim or nephilim by the Palestinians, but the Palestinians are well known for making up false beings, but not once was any being called nephelim or nephilim in the Holy Bible.
The Palestinians invented the idea of beings called nephelim or nephilim in their own stories and folklore, but the truth is the Bible only refers to a Palestinian place called nephelim or nephilim.
The word the Holy Bible uses to explain giants in the original language is nephiyl or nephil, not nephilim or nephelim as many false teachers are teaching today.
Nephil are NOT the inhabitants of nephilim, as some of you may be thinking.
The Holy Bible never calls the inhabitants of the city of nephilim the nephil.
The nephil, or giants, are found to be in several different Palestinian cities throughout the Bible.
David and his armies killed several of these nephil human beings.
So, what kind of giants are these nephil?
Are they dinosaurs as well as human beings?
The Holy Bible tells us that these nephil are tall, and strong, and large in stature, and not at all like the super tall humans today who are weak and die early deaths.
How do I know this?
Because God recorded through David that these nephil giants were tall, and could carry very big and heavy weapons, and wore huge pieces of armor, and one even wore a huge and heavy golden crown.
Scripture only tells us those facts, and there are no such human beings living today.
Some Christian scientists have concluded that most of the nephil giant “dinosaurs” of Noah’s time before the flood were either hunted to extinction before the world wide flood, or were drowned in the flood, because many of the dinosaurs were much too big to fit on Noah’s ark.
There is no proof that dinosaurs were not on Noah’s ark, but there is evidence of humans eating dinosaurs, or at least cooking them in a campfire.
Even though there is evidence of humans hunting species to extinction, and there may very well have been dinosaurs in Noah’s time, I believe the Holy Bible is only talking about human nephil giants.
There’s not one scripture that tells us the nephil in Noah’s time were large lizards, or aliens, or evil demon humans, but we are told several times that these nephil were simply tall, strong humans.
