Aliens, Nephilim, and Genesis 6

Updated: Jun 29, 2022

Aliens, Nephilim, UFOs, Greek Mythology, demi-gods, and Genesis 6

In recent days, we've been forced to grapple with a constant and rapidly changing relationship between the human race, and the "reality" in which we live. One piece of that ever shifting puzzle is the recent de-classification of a slew of documents and video footage confirming the existence— or at the very least the United States' government's belief in the existence— of unidentified aerial phenomena and extra-terrestrial entities.

Recently, I've been hearing these entities referenced in podcasts as "the old gods", which surprised me—but not in the way you might think. I wasn't surprised that those in the know were noticing the similarities between ancient gods and extra-terrestrials— quite the opposite in fact. I was shocked by their candor in openly recognizing and referring to these entities as what they really are: The old gods, indeed.

This is a topic I've been following for years, and my interest in the subject of U.F.O.s and U.A.P.s stemmed from what some might believe to be a rather unusual source given the subject— the Bible.

One of the most incredible parts about exploring the Bible on your own is the discovery that there is so very much in there that is so applicable to our lives that, for reasons beyond my comprehension, pastors refuse to discuss. One such discovery for me was the Genesis 6 account.

Go ahead and read through on your own time, but this is the account in which fallen angels "saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose (NIV, Gen. 6:2)" The first time I read this, my mind instantly made a connection to the other place I'd seen this before: Greek Mythology. I thought of Zeus visiting Denaë in prison, and conceiving the celebrated demi-god, Perseus. I'd always thought it so strange that ancient peoples had believed so fervently in stories so outlandish and fantastical. Now I found it incredible that the Bible was actually giving credence to these ancient mythologies. I'm not necessarily saying that these things happened, but it would seem that the Bible's position is that these sorts of events did actually happen in the times before the flood of Noah, and afterward as well.

As a result of such practices, there arose a new race of half-man, half-god beings known as the Nephilim, otherwise known as "the fallen ones". "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown (Gen. 6:4)"

In other words, the children of the fallen angels and human women were called Nephilim, and the author of Genesis informs us that these were the "heroes of old" and "men of renown," ancient heroes of great renown whose larger than life legends have been passed down through the generations. Who do you think of when you hear "heroes of old," and "men of renown"? I immediately thought of men like Thor, Hercules, Achilles, and Perseus; half-man, half-god, celebrated from ancient times even to this day.

Brief Intermission

Okay, so that was a lot of info, and there's still a whole lot more to this below, so I hope you won't mind if we take a very brief intermission. I hope you'll take a minute to watch this video that takes you behind-the-scenes of my novel The Withering before we continue with Genesis 6. If Christ-centered fiction in the vein of C. S. Lewis is your thing, then click here to preorder The Withering before you moving on to part 2 of our study!

Okay, then. Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Once you consider that fallen angels— or satan and his demons— are very real, and that they have interacted with humans in a variety of ways throughout history, you will find that you are no longer alarmed by the existence of extra-terrestrial entities. On the contrary, the revelation that the "old gods" do exist and have been in direct communication with our leaders in the halls of government is only further confirmation for the reliability of the Word of God.

Many have claimed for decades that the announcement of the existence of aliens would be a key factor in the events leading up to the end-times, and while it has been my stance to never hold too tightly to any one opinion regarding unfulfilled prophecy, I wouldn't doubt that "aliens" just might play a major role in the so-called "great deception" which was foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2:11.

It's easy to be swept away with fear, anxiety, or even excessive interest in these types of world-altering revelations, but I want to encourage everyone to stand firm in their faith, to dive deep into the Word of God, and hold on to the truth. Don't open yourself up to lies and deception by being ignorant of God's word, because despite what Fox Mulder might tell you, the truth is not out there... He's seated at the right hand of the Father.

I write stories that the world won't like,

to batter the darkness with everlasting light,

to encourage my readers to stand up and fight,

to equip my readers to guard their soul,

to hold fast to the good and the beautiful,

to set themselves apart from all that is profane,

to glorify my God, and of course to entertain.

Their world has reached its end... the fight for their future has only just begun. The moon will soon collide with the surface of Noloro, and three orphaned teens have nothing left in the world but each other. As the apocalypse threatens to end all life on their world, Rho is desperate to protect his little brother and secure a future for themselves, while Jeema falls captive to her dark past. A sardonic traveling magician offers them a way off their dying world, but at what cost? Their search for an escape will force them to face questions of flesh v. spirit, natural life v. eternal life, and physical death v. spiritual death. Family, faith, and courage are at the heart of this end-of-the-world adventure.

Faolan can't imagine his life without Lioslaith, but feeding and boarding a dragoness is expensive. Faolan needs to place third or better in the dragon races at this year's tournament, but Lioslaith is still recovering from an injured wing. He isn't willing to part from his dragoness without a fight, which means he must come up with a creative solution to a very difficult problem.
