Pentecostal thoughts on the Nephilims

Pentecostal thoughts on the Nephilims
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Interested to hear what people’s thoughts are on the Nephilim in Gen. 6 and how it might relate to today? “As in the days of Noah”.

The Nephilim were the offspring of fallen angels and human women. Some believe they are returning somehow but I do not know if I buy into that for now at least.

discussed so many times in this group that it got old http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/?s=Nephilim

I didn’t know that it was talked about before. Is it no proper to talk about it again????? Is there any other subjects I shouldn’t bring up because they’ve been talked about before?

But it is old actually, dates back to Early biblical times.

I believe that it relates now because laboratories all over the world are creating human/chimeras. I believe that the nephilim topic is what jesus was eluding to in his famous in the days of noah quote. If you are familiar with tom horn or steve quayle….that is exactly what i believe.

Jonathan McCandless just keeping you informed of what’s already done here. Do tell us your opinion of interest in this topic!

Jonathan McCandless [01/12/2016 8:04 PM]
I tend to agree with Ricky. Very interesting topic! Transhumanism and what they are trying to do with the human DNA is frightful to say the least!

John Kissinger [01/12/2016 8:13 PM]

Jonathan McCandless [01/12/2016 8:57 PM]

    here is a great discussion on angelic failures Rico Hero Philip Williams in light of Gen 6 I dont see how Heiser can offer different interpretation

    I don’t think they were angels if we read the whole chapter talks about man not angels ! Angels can’t reproduce

      John Palacios of course. Why I went to the exegesis on Deu 32, etc. Did you read?

      Philip Williams I have and haven’t find the word angels in that chapter either … it’s all about man been rebellious

      same with the word giants in LXX Gen 6 – of course giant and the great/big/high ones are close in meaning

      John Palacios ok, but know that God is bigger than that.

      Troy Day I think the nephilim were actually big men (6 foot is giant for most of the history of mankind. Just what I observe among those who died in the Flood. Here I differ from Heiser.

      Varnel Watson

      obviously some lived after the flood too but giants refers to the seed of the nephilims and not the nephilims themselves

      Troy Day ??

    Biological fail if you think humans and angels can mate and breed

    Norm Geisler asked how I understood this. I see them as angelic spirits taking possession of men. Norm liked that.

      i.e. those human daughters were demonized?

    • Reply March 21, 2019

      Philip Williams

      Troy Day Or literally had demonized husbands.

    • Reply March 21, 2019

      Varnel Watson

      why husbands? it says daughters of mankind

    • Reply March 21, 2019

      Troy Day daughters of mankind had demonized husbands.

      Norm informed us in a group meeting, he has struggled and changed several times in his understanding of this passage.

      daughters of mankind took fallen angels and become demonized

    I always took it as the descendents of Seth intermarrying with descendents of Cain. Angels/demons and humans can’t intermarry.

      Ray E Horton yeah, the Augustinian view. What amount demonized men seeking to take whatever beautiful women they please. Kind of like Pharaoh possibly killing Abraham to take his beautiful wife Sarah.

      How do the principalities and powers rule this earth except through men?
