WHY THE NEPHILIM DOCTRINE IS UNBIBLICAL
Thank you for listening to the Narrow Way Christian ministries online church service, today’s sermon is a part of the exposing Satan series, and I would like to start by reading a scripture from the book (Proverbs 14:15) The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
The title of this sermon is Why the Nephilim Doctrine is unbiblical, and the purpose of this sermon is to show you from the Bible, why the Nephilim doctrine is false, and not according to the word of God. I will briefly explain the Nephilim theory in simple terms, and then show you clear scripture that disprove this popular doctrine, I will also name the prominent false teachers who are promoting, and profiting from this false teaching. As Christians we are commanded to understand, and show ourselves approved before God, and we must know our Bibles well enough to be able to detect even the subtlest deception, which correctly describes the Nephilim doctrine.
THE NEPHILIM THEORY
To begin, I would like to briefly explain the Nephilim theory for anyone who is not familiar with this doctrine. The Nephilim theory teaches, that the Bible describes the devil, and other fallen angels, creating a hyrbrid race of giants, through relations with earth women, and that this is taught in Genesis 6. The theory states that the Nephilim were giants that possessed both human, and angel D.N.A material, and these Nephilim are the seed of Satan, or sons of the devil spoken of in scripture. This theory further entails that the great flood of Noah’s day was due to God’s desire to destroy the Nephilim, and stop the spreading of the seed of Satan through their corrupted genetic material. I would like to note that this is only a brief overview of the Nephilim doctrine, as I will now further detail the key points of this doctrine, and then show scripture that disproves it, and to shows it to be unbiblical.
THE SONS OF GOD
The foundational building block for those that teach the Nephilim theory, is that the sons of God in Genesis 6 and Job 1, were fallen angels. Proponents of this doctrine base their whole belief system, and in many cases, their interpretation of Bible prophecy on the false understanding that the Sons of God are in fact angels. However the Bible contradicts this interpretation in (Hebrews 1:5) For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?
So as you can see from this clear scripture, the Bible teaches that God never called any angel his son, in fact the Bible is very careful to explain exactly who the sons of God are in Genesis 6 and Job 1, one must only compare scripture with scripture to understand who the sons of God are.
The Bible says in (John 1:12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: And also says in (Romans 8:14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
So from these two scriptures you can see that the Bible defines the sons of God as believers and those who are led by the Holy Spirit. However the Bible furthers clarifies this definition in the book of (Philippians 2:15) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
So as you can see, the scripture declares boldly that God never called an angel His Son, and the sons of God are people with who share the spirit of God and the Faith of Abraham, and of Moses, and all the Prophets and fathers that spoke of His Glory and His coming.
But just in case it is not clear to you the Bible says in the book of (1 John 3:1-2) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
So, with so much clear scripture defining who the sons of God are, we must ask ourselves, how come so many people believe the Nephilim doctrine?
The answer to this question is simple. And It is because the Nephilim doctrine does not actually come from the Bible as so many believe, but rather it actually comes from a non- biblical text called the book of Enoch. The book of Enoch describes in great detail, a story of angels coming down from heaven, to marry and having physical relations with human women here on this earth. The book of Enoch describes the result of this union, as being the creation of a race of Giant hybrid beings, and the further corruption of Human D.N.A through the children of the fallen angels. The book of Enoch claims to reveal the origins of demons, and the true purpose of the great flood of Noah’s day, it also claims that through fallen angels, man received the knowledge of advanced technology and weaponry. And although this text may be it is entertaining to some, a true student of the Bible will see that it is not inspired scripture, nor in agreement with Bible doctrine.
THE DAYS OF NOAH
The next aspect of the Nephilim doctrine that I would like to explain, and then disprove using the Bible, is the teaching that the Bible says that it was the corruption of human D.N.A and advanced technology that caused God to destroy the earth, with the great flood of Noah’s day. Because remember as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
To start with, I would like to point out that it says in (Genesis 6:5-6) And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Now I would like to point out that the Bible says in (Genesis 6:5-6) that God saw the wickedness of man, that He had made and God saw that what He had created was evil, and it repented the LORD that he had created these men. I would like to note that this scripture makes no mention of hybrid beings or corrupted D.N.A but emphasizes the wickedness of man that God created. Continuing on, the Bible says in (Genesis 6:11) The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
This verse and those that follow, are often used to support the Nephilim theory, and the idea that the earth was corrupt before God because hybrid D.N.A. However the word of God defines the corruption as man’s violence and evil. In fact the violence of man being the cause of the great flood is once again reiterated in (Genesis 6:12-13) And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
I would like to again note that Genesis 6 explains clearly, that man which God created, was corrupted by their own hearts and because of violence, and this is what caused God to destroy the earth with the great flood. The Bible makes no mention of Hybrid beings, angelic D.N.A or advanced technology, as is taught by those who preach the Nephilim doctrine. With that noted I would like to say that there is so much false doctrine circulating in regards to the Nephilim theory, that it would take many long winded sermons to address them all, this sermon was produced only to address the foundational beliefs of the Nephilim doctrine, and show them to be unbiblical.
I BELIEVE IN GIANTS AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
I would also like to note, that there are certain elements of the Nephilim theory that I agree with, for example I believe in the reality of hybrid beings as depicted in certain mythology, although I don’t pretend to or claim understand their genesis. I also believe that certain pre-flood civilizations may have possessed advanced technology, however just because I believe such things it does not mean that the Bible teaches them. There is nothing wrong with having these theories or believing things that are unconventional, however there is something very wrong with perverting the word of God, and lying to people about what the Bible teaches in order to accommodate these theories, and to prophet from them.
The word of God is the truth, and all things that need to be known are contained within. I would also like to point out that certain information in regards to fallen angels, demons and other supernatural realities, are absent from the Bible for very good reason. Mainly because God does not want us to focus our attention on the works and power of the Devil, but rather He wants us to focus on the works and power of Jesus Christ, and glorify Him through the Gospel and our ministries.
The Bible says in (Colossians 2:18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.
FALSE WITNESSES AND DECEIVERS
I will now name three of the most prominent proponents of this doctrine, so you can be aware of them and their ministries. The first is a man named Steve Quayle who is a famous so called Christian radio personality, Quayle promotes many non-biblical texts such as the Book of Enoch, book of Giants and preaches them as inspired text. Steve Quayle sells all sorts of books and D.V.D’s that promote the Nephilim doctrine, the Bible says He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; Despite this fact Steven Quayle deals in large amounts of silver and gold, through his company renaissance precious metals. Quayle often appears on Sky Watch t.v which is run by the next false teacher that I would like to mention who’s name is Tom Horn.
Tom Horn is an evangelical Zionist that also promotes the Nephilim doctrine. Horn is famous for his book Pertus Romanus which rightly predicted the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013 he is also highly acclaimed for his book Exo-Vaticanus which exposed the Vatican’s connection to the mount Graham observatory, and the so called U.F.O. phenomenon. Many people including myself believe that Tom Horn is actually a Vatican insider and possibly a Jesuit, due to his access to inside information, and high ranking Catholic officials.
The final false teacher that I would like to name is a man named who calls himself L.A. Marzulli, Marzulli is a self-proclaimed Zionist, who has authored many books on U.F.Os and Alien disclosure. He travels around the world doing lectures and spreading false Bible doctrine. Mr Marzulli is obsessed with giants and proving the existence of paranormal phenomenon, but the Bible says in (Proverbs 10:13) In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
I would like to conclude by saying, that all of these men claim to be Christians and claim to glorify Christ through their work; However Jesus Christ cannot be glorified with false doctrine, or by intruding into things that they have not seen. These men and every one who is spreading the Nephilim doctrine, is perverting the word of God leading God’s people away from the Gospel unto themselves, and their own doctrine. I would like to conclude this sermon with one final scripture from the book of (Acts 20:29-30) for I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
