IT COULD BE the most controversial passage in the Bible: The Nephilim [or giants] were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. (Gen 6:4, ESV)
Scholars and theologians have argued over that verse for thousands of years. While scholars have come to accept that the verse means what it says, Christian seminaries still teach pastors that the “sons of God” were the righteous male descendants of Seth, the son of Adam and Eve.
In 2019, I gave a presentation on this at the Look, He is Coming with the Clouds Prophecy Conference at Crosspointe Church in Sanger, California. The bottom line is this: The Nephilim were divine-human hybrids whose creation was universally accepted by the prophets, apostles, and early church. The spirits of the giants destroyed in the Flood of Noah are the demons that are with us today.
Most important, the Hebrew prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel foretold the ultimate destruction of the Nephilim.
