Fall of the Nephilim
by Joel Fernandez
In the bible, the book of Genesis(6:1-4) speaks of beings referred to as the “nephilim”. They are described as the result of the union between the “sons of God” who chose to have children with the “daughters of men”. The book of Enoch goes into more detail, but we’ll get to that later. For now, all you need to know is that the nephilim were big part of the reason for the great flood that wiped out most of humanity during archaic times. Today’s conversation will be about the details that led to that particular divine judgment and the implications that entailed.
As the story goes, about 200 angels that were categorized as “watchers” decided that they wanted to take human women as wives and have children with them. The problem with that is that all angels are sterile by design unless they are granted a human body by the almighty. What’s more, it is forbidden for an angel to pass into the physical realm. They can do so at any time on pain of imprisonment and inevitable spiritual death. But it seems that their lust was strong enough to ignore the taboo and they proceeded to have sex with human women anyway. As if that wasn’t bad enough, they used their divine power to perform experiments that gave birth to the nephilim.
Furthermore, they taught mankind forbidden magic and how to wage war against each other in a way that disrupted what the God the father calls the “natural order of things”. Basically, they corrupted mankind in such a way that their transgressions were deemed unforgivable by the almighty. To that end, Azazel and the rest of the fallen angels were defeated in battle and subsequently imprisoned by the lord’s archangels and their corresponding angel subordinates.
Moreover, the watchers were designed with an exceptionally tough constitution that made them troublesome foes in battle. As such, God the father decided to imprison them in an inescapable hell that was separate from the rest of the demons. It wasn’t until recently that the Lord decided to send a team of archangels to execute the prisoners. As it turned out, Azazel proved particularly difficult to kill. Weapons and energy blasts were pretty much useless against him, so Metatron decided to rip his head off. After waving it around like a trophy for a bit, he was attacked by Azazel’s subordinates who presumably wanted to avenge their leader. At that point, Yahweh(God the father) ordered his sons to bring the battle to an end, and so they did.
At first glance, it might be easy to dismiss these stories as nothing more than religious superstition. But ancient cultures from all over the world speak of a great flood that wiped out most of humanity. Ironically, the fact that humanity was created in God’s image means that it is possible to choose to believe that mankind is the pinnacle of existence. And while everyone does have the right to choose their own world-view, it is important to acknowledge the possibility that the narrative that has been created by the collective political systems of the world are incomplete.
Take a moment to think about some of the ideas that are put forth by the “mainstream” media and educational systems from all over the world. On the one hand, we are seemingly encouraged to seek our own version of happiness insofar that it does not lead to unlawful behavior. That means discovering and cultivating ideas that lead to the “ideal state of mind”. But on the other hand, any thought processes or beliefs that include acknowledging the almighty creator somehow get sorted out of the academic category.
People would rather believe that a giant space explosion randomly created life in the universe, even though there has never been a documented case where an explosion created anything but noise and destruction. Whatever you choose to believe about existence and life itself is up to you. But perhaps we should all take a moment to re-evaluate what it means to choose wisely.
