Book of Giants

The Book of Giants enlarges on the mention in Genesis 6:4 of giants being “in the earth”.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And 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. 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”.  (Gen 6:1-4)

A few little-known texts about Enoch were discovered at Qumran. One of the most important of these is a fragment of The Book of Giants. According to The Book of Enoch, the mingling of fallen angels and humans created the Nephilim or Giant. The offspring of these unnatural unions were giants 350 eles high. In the Book of Enoch the fallen angels and the giants began to oppress the human population and to teach them to do evil. For this reason God brought about the flood, and imprisoned the fallen angels until the final judgment.

Book of Giants

Ogias the Giant, also known as The Book of Giants, is a Jewish book expanding a narrative in the Hebrew Bible. Its discovery at Qumran dates the text’s creation to before the 2nd century BC.  Book of Giants — Dead Sea Scrolls — 4Q203, 1Q23, 2Q26, 4Q530-532, 6Q8 – Compare Genesis 6:1-2, 4.

Reconstructed Text

(Gilgamesh speaks)“I am a giant, and by my mighty strength in my arm, I can vanquish anyone mortal. I have made war with them (mortals) in the past but I am not now able to stand against my opponents who reside in heaven, and dwell in holy places. And not only this, but they are in fact stronger than I am. The day of the ravening wild beasts has come and that of the wild man [as I am known]. Then Ohya said to him.” I have been forced to have a dream… The sleep of my eyes vanished so that I could see a vision. [Now I know that on the field of battle we cannot win.] Gilgamish- note!”(Ohya describes his vision. “I saw a tree uprooted except for three of its roots. While I was as it were watching, [some beings (good angels?)] moved all the roots into this garden [but not the three]. (The interpretation of this dream is similar to that of the earlier one.) “This dream vision concerns the death of our souls,” said Ohya, “and those of Gilgamesh and all his companions. However, Gilgamesh said to me that [all the forebodings] concerned [only the rulers of earth, the temporal, powerful ones, whom the leader of the good angels has cursed]. The giants were glad at his words. Then [Ohya] turned and left the assembly. (There are more dreams, the import of which is hostile to the giants. The dreamers report to the monsters and then to the giants.)

After this, two of them had visions; they were unable to sleep and they came to their comrades and told their “dreams”, to the assembly, their comrades. The monsters. They reported that in their dream they seemed to be observing a garden where “gardeners “(angels?) were watering two hundred trees and large shoots came out of their roots . [Suddenly the garden became ablaze] so that the garden was destroyed and all the water evaporated. Then they went to the giants to tell them of their dreams.(The suggestion was made to seek out the scribe and prophet Enoch to interpret the dreams.) Let us seek out Enoch, the noted scribe, and he will interpret for us the dream.. Thereupon Ohya declared to the giants “I too this night had another dream and behold the Ruler of Heaven came down to earth [and made an end of us]. Such is the ending of my dream”. Upon hearing this, all the monster and giants grew afraid and called Mahway, (the Titan) He came to meet the giants who pleaded with him and sent him to Enoch, the scribe. They (the giants) said to him “Go to Enoch so that he may speak to you and then return saying] you have heard his voice”. Ohya spoke to Mahway, and said to him, “He (Enoch) will listen and interpret the dreams and tell us how long we giants have to live and rule on earth. “(After a journey through the heavens Mahway sees Enoch and speaks to him of his request) Mahway mounted up in the air as if upon strong winds, using his hands like eagle`s wings. Heleft behind the inhabited world and passed over the great desert of Desolation., Enoch saw him and hailed him [Mahway told Enoch of his mission and said to him that he would speak with him.] Flying here and there Enoch came a second time to Mahway (after he, Enoch, had warned Mahway about flying too near the sun) Mahway spoke to Enoch and said that the giants and all the monsters of the earth await his words. [If the Fall of the wicked angels has been carried out (by divine Providence)] from their days of heavenly glory, can you at least assure us that the number of our days spent doing harm will be added to our lives. We wish to know the meaning of the two hundred trees that came down from heaven. (Enoch, having received Mahway`s request, tried to intercede with God but unavailingly. Accordingly, he presented Mahway with a tablet which was full of foreboding about the coming judgement, but which offered some hope for the future via repentance.)

The scribe, Enoch, gave Mahway a copy of another tablet (not the one doused in water) that bore his (Enoch`s) own handwriting. The writing on the tablet said: in the name of the great and holy God, this message is sent to, Shemihaza, and all his companions. Let it be known to you (the giants and monsters) that you will not escape judgement for all the things that you have done,and that your wives, their sons, and the wives of their sons [will not escape,] and that by your licentiousness on the earth, there has been visited upon you a heavenly judgement. The land is crying out and complaining about you and the deeds of your children and about the harm you have done to it. Until the heavenly angel Raphael, arrives, behold, destruction is coming by a great flood which will destroy all living things, whatever is in the deserts and the seas. The meaning of the [dreams/matter is by way of a judgement] for all your evil. But if you now loosen the bonds binding you to evil and pray (for forgiveness). (You may be saved). Raphael: an angel sent by God to fight against evil and especially Azazel (Enoch it appears also saw a vision at some point. He said the following); A great fear seized me and I fell on my face.  I heard his voice. (whose/ the angel`s?) (The text continues): He (Enoch) dwelt among human beings but he did not learn from or rely on them.It seems possible Enoch is talking about the occasion when an angel came down to earth to summon him to heaven.

Note:

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. They created human sacrifice. According to 1Enoch they drank blood and taught abortion.

The book of Enoch states,

And the fifth was named Kasdeja: this is he who showed the children of men all the wicked smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away, and the smitings of the soul the bites of the serpent…” (Enoch 69:12a)

They certainly tampered with both human and animal gene pools (Jasher) to try and hinder redemption through a human bloodline. They were the heroes of old, the mighty men of renown, talked about in mythology, and contributed to the reason God had to destroy the world and all its inhabitants in the Great Flood.

Watchers and Grigori

Watchers and Grigori are Fallen Angels

Watchers are first mentioned in Dan 4:13 where they are seen in a vision. Other mentions of “Watchers” are in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Pseudepigrapha. Watchers are also mentioned in the Book of Jubilees and in Slavonic Enoch (2 Enoch 18) where they are called the “Grigori” (egregoroi) and are among the 200 fallen angels who follow Samyaza their leader to fornicate with mankind.

Grigori & Watchers

While I was watching in my mind’s visions on my bed, a “holy sentinel” came down from heaven. (Net Bible Dan. 4:13) – I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a “watcher” and an holy one came down from heaven; (KJV)

Nebuchadnezzar means here to designate the character of the watcher, that he was holy, and that he was one of the class of “watchers” who were ranked as holy, as opposed to others  who were not holy. In Daniel, these are obedient angels, in the Book of Enoch they are referred to as fallen angels.

The name Watcher, or Grigori, means, “Those Who Watch”, ”Those Who Are Awake”, or “The Ones Who Never Sleep”. They are described as angels sent to earth in order to watch over and assist mankind during the inauguration of society. They were to monitor humanity, lending a helping hand, but not being intrusive into the course of humanity’s growth.

In Genesis the Sixth Chapter the Watchers are turned into fallen Angels because they take wives, mate with human women, and teach forbidden knowledge. I Enoch also echoes this same understanding.

Genesis says,

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. (Gen 6:4)

Jubilees (Jewish Historical Writing) says,

For it was on account of these three things [fornication, uncleanness, and injustice – see Jubilees 7:20] that the flood was on the earth, since (it was) due to fornication that the Watchers had illicit intercourse – apart from the mandate of their authority – with women. When they married of them whomever they chose they committed the first (acts) of uncleanness. They fathered (as their) sons the Nephilim. (Jubilees 5:6)

These “sons of God” are the Watchers or Grigori who are dispatched to Earth to watch over it. They soon begin to lust after the daughters of men, and at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, 200 defect en-mass to illicitly instruct and cohabite with humanity. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, giants who according to Enoch pillage the earth and devour humanity. Samyaza and his followers teach humanity arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, sorcery, and other things which were forbidden. God allows the Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim.

Jude says these Watchers are bound “in the deepest hell”.

These are the leaders of 200 angels in 1 Enoch which are turned into fallen Angels, because they took wives, mated with human women, and taught forbidden knowledge.

Araqiel (also Arakiel, Araqael, Araciel, Arqael, Sarquael, Arkiel, Arkas) taught humans the signs of the earth.

Armaros (also Amaros) taught men the resolving of enchantments.

Azazel taught men to make knives, swords, shields, and how to devise ornaments and cosmetics.

Gadriel taught the art of cosmetics.

Baraqel (Baraqiel) taught men astrology.

Chazaqiel (sometimes Ezeqeel) taught men the signs of the clouds.

Kokabiel (also Kakabel, Kochbiel, Kokbiel, Kabaiel, and Kochab), teaches men astrology.

Penemue taught mankind the secrets of wisdom.

Sariel (also Suriel) taught mankind about the courses of the moon.

Samyaza (also Shemyazaz, Shamazya, Semiaza, Shemhazi, Semyaza and Amezyarak) is the leader of those who fall from heaven by lusting after the daughters of men.

Did Fallen Angels Actually Cohabitat with Humans?

It has been the opinion of Rabbinical Scholars, and the translators of the Septuagint that this event actually occurred.

The early church agreed with this view. Justin Marty, Cyprian, Eusebius, and even Josephus a historical writer accepted this view. While we should not let tradition have the final say in doctrinal matters, we can learn from their statements why they considered Fallen Angels to have actually been cohabitating with human females. Justin Marty (the earliest of the church fathers) in his Second Apology wrote, “The Angels lusted after woman, and beget giants. These giants upon death became the demons.”

This cohabitation with human females resulted in an offspring called “Nephilim”. The King James Version says, “Giants”. Giants in the Hebrew text are described as those “who ruined the world” (by their violence, (Enoch vii. 3, 4). They comprise three classes: the original giants, who begot the Nephilim, to whom in turn, were born the Elouid. (Book of Enoch, vii. 2).

What about the origin of the word Nephilim, Nephilim cannot mean, “fallen ones” as some have speculated (the spelling would then be nephulim). Likewise, Nephilim does not mean “those who fall” or “those who fall away” as Zecharia Sitchin suggests (that would be nophelim). The only way in Hebrew to get nephilim from naphal by the rules of Hebrew morphology (word formation) would be to presume a noun spelled naphil and then pluralize it. This is what Zecharia Sitchin suggests. However, in Aramaic the noun naphil(a) does exist. When the ancient Greek version of the Hebrew Old Testament (the LXX or Septuagint) was written, the word “Nephilim” was translated gegenes, (giant) a word implying “Earth born.” This same terminology is used to describe the Greek gods. Greek and Roman mythology have legends of “gods” coming down and intermarrying with humans having hybrids, half-human and half-god or animal. Unger’s Bible dictionary says, “the Nephillim are considered by many as demigods, the unnatural offspring of the daughters of men mortal women in cohabitation with” the sons of god” (angels). This utterly unnatural union, violating God‘s created order of being, was such a shocking abnormality as to necessitate the worldwide judgment of the flood.” (pg. 788) These legends and folklore are distortions of the true account given in Genesis.

This mingling was disastrous for humanity. The mingling of angel and human is a fact reported somewhat as a matter of fact in Genesis. However, other texts explain this occurrence with a little more color. According to The Book of Enoch, the offspring of the fallen angels, the Nephilim began to oppress the earth, and to eat up the inhabitants thereof.

Angels can change into physical form even though by nature they are spirit beings. The Bible does not tell us how this happens, but it refers to angels “which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation” Jude 6-7. This verse is saying that the angels who kept not their “own habitation” had gone after “strange flesh”. These are the angels referred to in Genesis Chapter Six who took on human form “strange flesh” and went after “strange flesh”, that is the daughters of Adam. Jude gives us an understanding of fallen angels and their interaction with humanity and of those who resist such knowledge are called, “brute beasts”. Interesting….

Alien abduction by fallen angels

Abduction

What does it mean that they “kept not their first estate”? The word rendered “habitation” (oikētērion) occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. It means they kept not their spiritual bodies but took upon themselves flesh!

What purpose would there be for such an intermingling? They the Watchers (name given to these fallen angels) were captivated by the love of women. This said in Genesis, and the Book of Enoch, although it has been suggested that it was also an attempt to pollute the gene pool by introducing something foreign, and well it may be. This would have been disastrous since Christ would then not have been able to been born of humankind. You might notice that Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. We would now say “perfect in his gene pool”. This word “perfect” is the same Hebrew word used to denote the perfectness of a sacrificial lamb for slaughter. Noah was not affected by the defiled “gene pool” of humankind by the fallen angels.

When God floods the earth, what happens to these offending angels?

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;” (2Pe 2:4)

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jud 1:6-7)

Both of these verses give account of the sin of the angels, which departed from their own nature to go after unnatural desires. Because of this, they are confined in chains in Tartarus. Tartarus is the deepest abyss of Hades, and is the same as the underworld, or abode of the dead. This incarceration in chains until judgment day gives us further insight into who these angels are. If the sin mentioned here was the original fall of the angels, then all the evil angels would be in chains, not just some. This would mean that all the angels would be bound, and would not be active today. Obviously, reading the Book of Revelation this is not correct so the only other explanation is a separate event which prompted God to lock them up.

According to Enoch, the two hundred fallen angels who had intermarried with the daughters of men in the days of Jarad were chained under hell in darkness. The desert which is in Dudael (Judean Desert) was opened, and the offenders were thrust down into Tartarus and covered with sharp stones and chains of darkness to await the Day of Judgment.

These fallen angels have ventured into our dimension several times. The first incursion began before the Great Flood when some two hundred fallen angels or Watchers followed Samyaza and elected him their leader. Under Samyaza they swore an oath to materialize into this realm and to perform the deed of cohabiting with the daughters of men. They forsook their own realm in direct opposition to the command of the Lord.

Samyaza said to them, “I fear that you may not fulfill this venture, and I alone shall suffer for so terrible a crime.” They answered and said to him, “We all pledge and bind ourselves by fears that we will not change our mind and hearts, but we will fulfill this venture.” The two hundred swore together, and all bound themselves by the fears. The whole number, with their leaders, descended upon Mount Hermon in the days of Jared. All of the Watchers who materialized into this realm took wives, cohabiting with them and teaching them all manner of wickedness, sorcery, and witchcraft.

Wickedness continued to increase, and fornication by the fallen angels rampaged throughout the Earth.

Then came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness. And they begat sons, the nephilim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew one man another “(Book of Jubilees).

The mating of the sons of God with humans did not end after the flood. The short statement “…in those days; and also after that”, refers to the fact that the fallen angels, the sons of God, continued to sin with the daughters of men. (Genesis 6:4)

When incidents amplified in places such as Sodom and Gomorrah, God would destroy the area. Sodom and Gomorrah were not the only cities God destroyed, because Jude 1:7 states that, there were other cities “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner”.

Abaddon – Apollyon- Fallen Angel- Samyaza

Who is Apollyon & Abaddon? Can we know?

Rev 9:3-11 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpionsof the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as

Fallen Angels

Fallen Angels

the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings [was] as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power [was] to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.


The symbolism of Revelation 9:11 leaves the exact identification of Abaddon open for interpretation. Matthew Henry (1708) believed Abaddon to be the antichrist, while Jamieson-Fausset-Brown  (1871) identified the angel as Satan. The term abaddon appears six times in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible; abaddon means destruction or “place of destruction,” or the realm of the dead, and is associated with Sheol. Abaddon is the angel of the abyss. The leader of the angels which were cast into Tartarus. Because of their sins (Genesis the Sixth Chapter) these angles, led by Samyaza were cast into Tartaros, after the Flood. It is likely, therefore that  Samyaza their leader is the Biblical Abaddon of Revelation.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose. And the LORD said: ‘My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.’ The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. (Gen 6:1-4 JPS)

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jud 1:6 )

These are the angels (Watchers) (Fallen Angels) that sinned during the days of Noah. They were locked in the “abyss”. I like the way the Message Bible says it, “And you know the story of the angels who didn’t stick to their post, abandoning it for other, darker missions. But they are now chained and jailed in a black hole until the great Judgment Day. ” (Jud 1:6 MSG)

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;(2Pe 2:4 )

“Hell” here is the Greek word, “tartaroō” meaning the the deepest abyss of Hades. In classic mythology Tartarus, or Tartaros was a deep, gloomy place, a pit, or an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering that resided beneath the underworld. It was the deepest hell which was used as a prison for the worst of villains and the titans. In Roman mythology, Tartarus is the place where enemies of the gods are sent. Virgil describes it in the Aeneid as a gigantic place, the deepest part of the underworld, surrounded by the flaming river Phlegethon and triple walls to prevent its tormented captives from escaping.

 

PRETENDING- FALLEN ANGELS


Did you know Gray Aliens (fallen angels and demonic beings) can look like frogs. Where can we find a reference to “end time” frogs?


Rev 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Frogs

“Gray Aliens” are said to have, large eyes, slit mouth, no nose, 3-4 long webbed fingers, no external genitalia, and no hair.
