Fallen Watchers part three, Sivan 24
WHAT'S IN A NAME
is a tell-tale "mark" if you will, that can be found in the
names for the angelic hierarchy. There is the peculiar "im"
at the end of most of the names of giant and angel alike. Keep in
mind, that the name for the "triune" God is "Elohim"
in the Hebrew. Not to confuse God with the Enemy, but this shows a
definite linguistic trademark. It is the stamp of "made in
heaven". If your still doubting the nature of the nephillim,
then you must look at the meaning of their names to get a better
picture of what they were. As shown earlier, the term "nephillim"
is a generic term
designating all the various "tribes".
There is a great deal to be learned from the etymology of the names
of these things. There were "tribes", and each tribe was
distinct. To show the "distinctive" differences between
each tribe, we must do a little digging:
-raphah; a giant, dead [Strong's ref. 7497, 7496]
- anaqiy; a desc. Of Anak, to choke, necklace [Strong's ref. 6062, '60,59]
- eymiym; terrors, fright, horror, fear [Strong's ref. 367, '8]
- zuziym; aboriginal tribe, a wild beast [Strong's ref. 2104, '23]
- zamzom; intriguing, native tribe,to plan, devise evil [Strong's ref. 2157,61]
- choriy; cave dweller, troglodyte [Strong's ref. 2752]
- tsophiym; watchers, to observe, to wait for [Strong's ref. 6839, '22]
- kaphtoriy; to encircle, origin of the philistines [Strong's ref. 3732, '31,30]
- gammad; a warrior, to grasp, [Strong's ref. 1575, '74]
- sayir;devil, satyr, he-goat, hairy [Strong's ref. 8163]
- shed; a devil, demon, insolence, waste [strong's ref. 7700, '36]
- nephiyl; a giant, feller, cast down, be judged,fugitive, thrown down, fallen, an abortion [Strong's ref. 5303, '07]
The most interesting of these is the translation for the word"Zophim", This word comes from the root from which we get the word "eyes" Which is what you see in the photographs - eyes watching from the sky. This name is also a title of one of the offices of the angelic host, the "watchers" (see Dan.4:17). Put in your head the adjective "observe" in description of the Zophim. Bury this correlation into your brain, because later on you will begin to SEE the light in some bible prophecy I will explain later.
Needless to say, all the meanings of these names give somewhat of a descriptive picture of what these things were and about. Ancient Hebrew tradition calls the Anakim (star wars used name of fallen angels in their movies.) the "long-necked ones" (compare with the description of what is known as a "reptilian"). The translation for the word "Caphtorim"shows that the Philistines roots are traced to the nephillim. Goliath was a Philistine, and he was also an Anakim.
You will find certain nephillim in scripture that have "six fingers and six toes". Another nephillim weapon and armor are recorded in the bible to have weighed between an estimated 300 to 400 pounds! Another giants "bed" is recorded in the bible as being 21 feet long by 13 feet wide (this is based on the measurement of a cubit, which can not be exactly determined today. I'm basing this measurement on the 27 inch cubit). Ancient Hebrew myths and legends record the nephillim as being 300 feet tall! Preflood nephilim were 6000 ells tall; their bodies, as proved on this site for many years, make mountain ranges to this very day, petrified. Behold.

Check it out for yourself. I mean, do these sound like "humans" to you? Lets face it, these THINGS were absolutely NOT HUMAN. We are not just talking about "demon possessed men" here, were talking about Horrific Men and Women, with a devouring lust for blood and living flesh to survive! God will sometimes relate these to the realm of "men" in scripture, as they were FLESH, but they were NOT human. If anything they were half-human at best, and definitely a MUTATION or HYBRID. That's what the scripture shows!. In essence, they were (are still?) a "doorway of the physical," from one state ( fallen angel), to another (demon). Nephillim are the least powerful of the hierarchy. They are "confined" to a "house of flesh", which limits their "supernatural" capabilities.
I'm telling you, they weren't teaching you everything in Sunday school. These beings are referred ever so subtly under the text. YHVH, our Adonai (in the "first person") makes this proclamation to affirm the "angelic genetics" of these creatures:
who in the heaven
unto YHVH? who among the
sons of the mighty
can be likened unto YHVH?"
The term "sons of the mighty" is parallel to the use of "sons of the gods". The word "mighty" here is translated [Strong's ref. 410 el, ale; mighty; espec. the Almighty (only used of deity):- God, might, power, strong]. God had only ONE LEGITIMATE SON, so it is NOT referring to THEM in this way. Gesenius translates this term as meaning "sons of the bnai elohim", which makes these "sons", NEPHILLIM!. Notice that YHVH makes this charge to THEM who are in "heaven". The word "heaven" is very intriguing here, it is "shachaq" in the Hebrew meaning "a small firmament"; by anal. as beaten small (by trituration or attrition). There is another word in the bible that is very closely related to the ones we are discussing.
This word is"teraphim", which means an "idol"or"statue"[Strong's ref. 8655 teraphiym]. The translation of the word and the scriptures it appears, seems to indicate that they were "statues" of ANGELS used for the purpose of "healing". It must be completely understood that the Hebrews practiced the "worship" of angels. Ancient writings indicate that through this practice, "physical interaction" could be obtained (and was). Never the less, scripture states assuredly that the "worshiping of an idol" is the direct "worship of a fallen angel", it might as well be the real thing (not a statue). The Israelites were consistently falling into idolatry, and the Lord constantly did JUDGE THEM for it. An "idol" acts as a "gateway", giving the demonic host the "gold card" to your soul! Ignorance is not an option here, there will be NO excuse come the day. Catholics and Protestants take note!
The Sumerians/Babylonians according to archeologists, founded Babylon in the late 3rd millennium B.C. Its original name was called "Babel", which meant "gateway of God". Biblical records, however, indicate an earlier date for the event connected with the building of the structure known as the "Tower of Babel". According to the biblical account, the "tower" was built during the reign of "King Nimrod", the first "King" of Babylon. Nimrod was also a descendant of Noah.
The bible is silent on the time-frame of the building of the "tower" of Babel, but conservative bible scholars have placed it between 3500 and 4000 B.C. It could have been much earlier than this, and than again, much later. But all we know, is that by the time of the building of the "tower", the Earth's population had been restored to a certain degree from the devastation of the "deluge". The reference to Nimrod and the beginning of Babylon in the bible, is "centered" around the building of the "tower". We will have to examine a verse very closely, to see what this "tower" was all about.

*Note:modern-day scholars have concluded that the word "shem" is borrowed from the Sumerians word "sham" (shu.MU). The proper pronunciation of "shem" is "shame" in English.
The miracles of Christ in the New Testament, are called "shems". They were marks of his divinity. The "signs" and "wonders" in Jer. 32:20, are also called "shems". But the original meaning of the word from its Sumerians origin is "MU"(sham) which means "fiery sky chamber"! (see the Babylonian Epic of Creation, the Enuma Elish). These were associated with what are known as "stelae" in the Babylonian texts. "Stelae" are the objects or memorials associated with the "mu". They are otherwise known as "stone pillars" or OBELISKS that we see throughout all cultures of antiquity in some form or another. As will be shown later, something else is referred to as being "pointed" (obelisk).
To Akkadians/Babylonians, and Assyrians, they were known as the "naru" (fiery stones that fly). In Hebrew, the word "ner" means "a pillar that emits light". It is from this word that we get the term "candle".
By the implication of the translation itself from the Hebrew, it shows that the "shem" that they made was a "miracle" by definition!. If that is not enough, than you must deal with the "identity" of the only named personage involved with this event, Nimrod. In verse 9 he is called a "mighty hunter" before God. The use of the word "mighty" here is very specific indeed. It is [Strong's ref. 1368 gibbhor;- giant], or other wards, nephillim!. The word for "hunter" is ambiguous. The textual intent seems to imply that Nimrod was in fact a nephillim, but does not say what "type" of hunter he was. Nimrod is related as being anything other than your average, everyday human!. Nimrod came from nephilim parentage, via Cush.
There is a verse of scripture and it is translated quite differently in your King James Bible. Actually, the rendition in the King James is absolute "butchery", half of the text is missing, and the translation is completely ludicrous. I remind you again, this translation is much closer to the original. Pick up a Greek Hebrew concordance and check it out. It is a passage of prophecy that I believe to be fulfilled during the Tribulation. Though it will be denied uni-laterally amongst scholars, this is what it really says:
vision which Esias son of Amos saw
against Babylon. Lift up a standard on the
mountain of the plain, exalt the voice to
them, beckon with the hand, open the gates,
ye ruler. I give command and I bring them:
N E P H I L L I M
are coming to fulfill
rejoicing at the same time and insulting.
(Septuagint LXX, Isaias 13:1-3)
This vision of Isaiah's is depicting the time of the end. It is referring to the time of "the day of YHVH". The day of YHVH happens during the Tribulation. This vision is against "Babylon". Babylon is a focus of end-time prophecy. The location of end-time Babylon is, contrary to where 99.9% of bible scholars place it, NOT in the Middle-east, but that's another dissertation. It needs to be noticed here, that it is the "YHVH" who brings them, to fulfill HIS wrath!. It must be remembered here, now, that this is as close to the "original" AS YOU CAN GET IT! Let's go on with this passage now.
voice of many nations on the mountains,
even like to that of
m a n y n a t i o n s;
a voice of kings and nations gathered together:
the Lord of hosts has given command to a
This verse can throw you off if your not paying attention. These are many nations "on the mountains" (high places). Notice that both "kings" and Nations" are represented and "gathered together" (Armageddon). The word "kings" here is "melek" in the Hebrew. Its root comes from "ma'lak" , which denotes that of "angels" of class/rank. As it is stated in verses 1-3, these "nephillim" are referred to as a "war-like nation" (one, singular). YHVH gives them "command", and he BRINGS THEM. Command of what? Command of "fulfilling his wrath"! (vs. 3). Where does he bring them from? Well? Don't think I'm getting a little "off the wall", but look at the next verse.
"To come from
A F A R O F F,
UTMOST FOUNDATION OF
YHVH and his warriors are coming to
destroy the world".
Very little of these five verses remains in your King James or any of the other versions. The "utmost foundation of heaven" does NOT sound like around here (earth). This place is a land "afar off". The use of the word "utmost" is antiquated to "distance" somewhere else on the Great Plane. The inference of the use here is as to the "ends of the universe" when read in its context. This is directly connotative with the "day of the YHVH" or what's referred to as Armageddon.
behold! the day of YHVH
is coming which
cannot be escaped,
a day of wrath and anger, to make the world desolate,
and to destroy sinners out of it."
These are very provocative verses of scripture. When exegeted and read in context, the impression left is that most of what's taking place is not of "human" doing. Besides, no humans live at the "utmost foundation of heaven" now do they?. As stated in verse 3, we are dealing with "nephillim" here, actually, by what the text says, NATIONS OF THEM!. Isaiah has a lot of strange things to reveal, and it would be extremely wise to take careful notice, as Isaiah had much to say about Babylon, and the last-days.
