Ancient Mysteries of the Bible Part IV
In this section of the discussion we will be talking about what the earth was like from the time of Adam up to the flood. This section of Genesis is very brief in its descriptions of this time in history. Thankfully the Dead Sea Scrolls and the discovery of the Books of Enoch have shed some bright light on these long secret histories. And in the fields of archeology and anthropology we have seen the proof of many of the long held "myths" of the Genesis days. We will ask several key questions about the giants of Genesis, the Cain lineage and what it may infer about humanity, the immaculate conception of Noah, was he a hybrid of angels and humans? There are many strange histories written about this time in history which were authored by the Sumerian culture. Histories rife with detailed accounts of the "alien" race known as Annunaki.
So what was the earth like in those days? Well, if you read the sixth chapter of Genesis, you will get a hint of some of the conditions in that period of time. Verses 6-8 of Genesis 6 basically say that "there were giants in the earth in those days", and these giants were called the Nephilim. It also states that fallen angels came to earth and had sex with human women. The giants were the offspring of this unholy union of the spiritual and mortal. These hybrids apparently were "men of renown", attributing a legendary status in the ancient days. Could this be the origin of such legends as Hercules or Achilles? Great heroes who were superior to mortal man because of a Divine element in their genetics. Most heroes of mythologies around the world speak of a mortal woman being impregnated by a "god" figure and producing a physically superior being.
Now lets really look at what we are reading here. The Holy Bible tells us that these "messengers" or "watchers" from "the heavens" came down from the heavens and had sexual intercourse with the human women on the planet. It also clearly states that the offspring of these couplings were "giants". Why is this not talked about more by theologians and scientists is the real mystery. I am in awe at this Biblical account of alien/human breeding.

In Genesis 6, vrs 5-6, it describes that the Lord saw that these unions infected the land with wickedness and evil. This is precisely the reason for the flood. As Genesis 6, vrs 11 states; "The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth." So these sexual unions and the giants bore from them seemed to usher in great evil and wickedness. God saw this and noted that the "flesh" had been corrupted, or the gene pool was corrupted, so he decided to destroy them all with a flood.

Now, the Bible kind of skips past some details about the "how" and "for how long" but it describes the world as a very corrupt, wicked place. The Book of Enoch, however, goes into great detail about this question. As the Book of Enoch describes it, the earth was in the process of being populated when an angel named Azazel saw the beautiful women of the human race. Azazel and 200 other angels made a pact to descend to the earth and mate with the human women. The pact bound them to be equally responsible for breaking Gods law. So they descended to earth and chose for themselves, wives and bore children to them. This is where the giants come from.
But what else the Book of Enoch tells us is even more detailed. The 200 angels who descended were split up into groups of 20 with a leader over them, so approximately 10 groups of 20, and 10 leaders all under the leadership of Azazel. These groups went in various directions and spread their seed quickly. As they did this, they began to teach mankind some forbidden knowledge that God did not intend us to have. It even gives the actual name of the angel, and what they taught mankind. The forbidden knowledge includes things like making weapons of war from metals, astronomy, jewelry, cosmetics, root-cutting, enchantments, etc.
There is a difference between the magicians spoken of in the Bible and the magicians and illusionists one sees today at parties and in stage show acts. The magicians in the Bible either gained their power from demonic forces, or else they were little more than charlatans who pretended to have great knowledge, to discover secrets, tell fortunes, and predict things to come.
The word "magic" is actually used six times in the Bible, three times in the Old Testament and three times in the New Testament. However, the word, "magician(s)" is used 15 times. We know that the Egyptians worshipped many gods and that magic played an important part in the rituals of their high priests. It was through the deception of magic that the Egyptians were made to believe their gods actually had power. Genesis speaks of magicians in Pharaoh's service. But it is interesting to note that they were powerless to interpret Pharaoh’s dream (Genesis 41:8), prompting Pharaoh to send for Joseph who interpreted it correctly because he spoke the words God gave him.
The Book of Exodus speaks of magicians practicing what is called "secret arts" (Exodus 8:7), as they brought up frogs and thereby replicating God's plague on the land of Egypt. Magic in this case was used in an attempt to mock God by mimicking the miracles God performed through Moses. Magic and sorcery played a major role in the pantheistic religion of Egypt. Its ancient documents record the activities of the magicians, one of the most prominent being the charming of serpents. These men were also self-styled “wise men” and “sorcerers,”— the learned men of the day and the religious as well. Two of these men, named Jannes and Jambres are mentioned in 2 Timothy 3:8. If not supernaturally inspired, they simply practiced their trade by optical illusion, sleight of hand, or the learned physical manipulation of things such as snakes. In either case, deceit was their aim, and they were sufficiently skillful to completely fool Pharaoh and his servants.
And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand.
And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he [Moses] put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow. And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.
And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole:and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived
So the Bible clearly states that magic is not only real, but it is something we learned from alien beings. The knowledge of this has obviously been lost through time but how incredible the world must have been with several races of beings, giants, aliens and humans existing together, using magic and making alchemical potions. Amazing.
The Book of Enoch goes on to say that these giants "consumed all the acquisitions of men" and eventually even "devoured mankind" as well as birds, beasts and reptiles in the area. The BOE describes this as "sin" against the inhabitants of the earth, both animal and mankind. It seems the appetite of the giants was so large that it upset the very ecosystem in the region. The narrative goes on to say that the giants even became cannibals. Eating each others flesh and drinking each others blood. At this point it says mankind begged God for help with prayers and cries "against the gates of heaven", or the boundaries of space.
The BOE chapter nine tells of the four arch-angels named Michael, Raphael, Ariel and Gabriel "looked down from heaven", or space, and saw that the earth was indeed corrupt. So then we are told how the four then went to God himself and had a meeting about what to do. God then decrees that he will destroy them all and start over with the only atomic bloodline that had not mingled with that of the aliens. The bloodline of Adam, through Seth and Enosh up through Enoch, Methuselah and Lamech, and then Noah. Apparently, nowhere in these generations did the genes of the "watchers" or their Nephilim offspring ever mingle with the pure Adamic line, or the Jewish line that goes through Adam, Moses, King David and ultimately Jesus.
Giants bore from alien/human breeding? A mass genocide committed by God because the gene pool was polluted? Are we reading this correctly, you may ask. The answer is yes, and archeology is proving it. Since the 1950's, many tombs of giants have been discovered. A femur bone, found in a tomb in the Turkish Euphrates valley, in one of the tombs was 47 inches long, which would mean that the giant stood around 14-16 feet tall. Several entire skeletons of "humans" who stood 12-16 feet tall have been unearthed in recent years in places in, or around the Tigris/Euphrates valley. Why do we not hear about it on the news? Why isn’t every church in the Christian Jewish community going crazy over this new evidence? Another thought numbing mystery. The discovery of these remnant species clearly proves Genesis 6 is not a mere tale. I consider the discovery of these skeletal remains to be one of the most significant discoveries in biblical archeology.
Incidentally, the original 200 angels were, in fact punished by God. Their leader, Azazel, was taken out to the desert and put into a bottomless pit located in a place called Dudael. Dudael has been determined to be somewhere between modern day Egypt and the Mt.Sinai region. Jewish midrash writings say Mt Hermon is the "gate" to the pit. Mount Hermon resides in modern day Syria, where they have discovered several giant skeletons. Yet another example of science corroborating the Bible.
It is clear that the pre-flood world of the Middle East were in dire conditions. But what of the rest of the planet. As stated before, there is a plethora of evidence that shows pre-adamic civilizations across the globe. What about the 50,000 year old gold mines, built using copper chisels, found in South Africa? What about the 17,000 year old ruins of Palenka in South America, where the stones weigh 30 tons and were chiseled to machine tool exactness? What about the 9,000 year old Puma Pumku site in South America, where these 50 ton stones were not only erected, but placed in a manner which aligned with various astronomical bodies? What about the Great Pyramid? The pyramid still has no qualitative date assigned to its construction, nor has any methodology been posited that merits credible acknowledgment. It is clear to me, and many, many others with greater education and experience, that there is a lost chapter in our vast history. There was an ancient, world-wide civilization that spanned all continental boundaries and shared cuniformic/hieroglyphic writing, polytheistic beliefs, ziggurat styled, and in many cases, paramedical styled architecture. They all have religious writings which describe beings from space, coming down to earth and teaching mankind great things, breeding with them, ruling them. They all speak of these beings as capable of flight. They all speak of the same themes, like creation, knowledge, sin, the flood....it is no coincidence.
So what was this pre-adamic civilization? That is a wonderful question which I could go on for hours about. Maybe in another book. We can, however, surmise that it was a very advanced and educated civilization which could somehow span the continents. They had knowledge in the pre-historic era that we have only begun to grasp. There WERE giants on the earth in those days, and they were there for approximately 1000 years. The genetic remnant did survive the flood according to the biblical record. The Old Testament books describe, over and over, the battles that the Israelites had with the giants. These battles spanned centuries and were fought to retake the Holy Land promised by God to the Jews.
