GILGAL REPHAIM, CIRCLE OF OG KING OF BASHAN

GILGAL REPHAIM, CIRCLE OF OG KING OF BASHAN

 

Gilgal Refā’īm is an ancient megalith

Also, known as the Circle of the Refaim.

The Circle of the Refaim consists of five concentric stone rings whose diameter is 155 meters. The best preserved of the rings is the outermost, whose height reaches 2 meters. Some of the stones used to create the ring weigh twenty tons. The total weight of the stones in the Circle of the Refaim is 37,000 tons. In the middle of the rings is a CAIRN topped by a TUMULUS  measuring twenty meters across. A CAIRN is a heap of stones set up as a landmark, monument, or tombstone. The TUMULUS is  a domelike swelling or mound upon the top. The Circle of the Refaim has two large openings , like doorways, one facing northeast and the other facing southeast.

In the general region of the rings are hundreds of dolmens similar in appearance to those found in northern Britain and France. Some 8,500 dolmens of twenty separate styles have been indentified on the Golan Heights. Each tribe had its own dolmen style. The biggest dolmen stones weigh over 50 tons and are seven metres in height. Graves are found within some domens but not all. Their function could not have been purely burial.

There is strong evidence that the biblical giants or Refaim of the Bible were the architects the Circle of the Refaim.

In Genesis 14:5, “the Refaim inhabit the place called Ashtherot-Karnaim. Just ten miles from the rings is the site of an ancient Canaanite city called Ashtherot”.

In Joshua 12:4,  “King Og of Bashan, the last of the Refaim, who lived at Ashtarot… ruled a territory stretching From Mount Hermon in the north”.

In 1 Chronicles 6:71, we are told that the half-tribe of Manasseh later inhabited “Golan,” in Bashan. The most explicit description of the size of the people of Bashan is found in Deuteronomy 3. “King Og‘s iron bedstead is kept at Rabbah… and measures thirteen and a half feet long and six feet wide.” The Refaim “were a large and powerful tribe, as tall as the Anakim (giants).

In Chronicles 20, the last of the Anakim is killed.

And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant.

But when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David’s brother slew him. These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants”. (1Ch 20:6-8) Notice here also, that he was the son of a giant, an Elouid.

According to tradition, the Nephilim had enormous psychic abilities. They performed levitation, mind control, and remote viewing. They had the power of pronouncing and removing curses and diseases, and had ways of knowing and predicting the future. They were extremely intelligent. They knew all about science, architecture, and engineering. They combined these skills with their powers of intelligence to build the Pyramids and the other great monuments around the world.
