Aliens and Bigfoots
Yeah that’s where we are going in this post.
There is a scriptural explanation for both these phenomena.
Full disclosure, if the current me could time travel to visit the past me and explain how the bible speaks of aliens and sasquatches past me would have been very concerned about current me and how I’d gone crazy.
If you don’t believe these things I don’t blame you, but I have come to believe this through serious study and because scripturally certain verses in the bible that don’t make sense otherwise without this explanation.
First let’s look at an odd thing that Daniel said in one of the visions he was interpreting for Nebuchadnezzar. In Daniel 4: 13 it reads:
“I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and behold a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven.”
What the heck is a Watcher? The canonical version of the Bible doesn’t explain this any further. It’s as if Daniel expects us to know what a Watcher is. And if we studied some of the same records he did, I’m sure we’d understand what a Watcher is.
Let’s look at some odd verses in the book of Genesis that seem to suggest an odd unprecedented event that took place in our past that changed everything in that time.
Genesis 6:2 states the following:
“That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”
In the past when I read Genesis I thought this was an odd verse and couldn’t quite understand it. I figured it was speaking to general apostasy. How good people can sometimes marry people that are not of their faith and then their children don’t grow up with the same faith, values, and culture as their parents.
However, that train of thought seems odd because it says “Sons of God” and “Daughters of Men.” Is it saying a bunch of sinful worldly women were married by righteous men?
I mean that might be the case, as men we often prioritize certain physical features of a woman (boobies and butt) for a higher value than what they are worth. But, if you are a somewhat righteous man or have a decent functioning analytical mind, you’ll still consider the craziness factor of such a woman before you marry her.
If you didn’t, I mean how righteous were you? Could you really have the title “Son of God?”
And a bunch of unrighteous women but righteous men, seems like an odd statistical anomaly? I would think apostasy would consist of both sexes.
Let’s look at another odd verse Genesis 5:1
“This the book of the generations of Adam….”
What else could the book be about? Seems like a stupid statement. What other generations are there to consider? If Adam was the first created by God don’t all generations come from him?
Unless another bloodline somehow came into play; then this statement doesn’t makes sense.
Let’s go back to Genesis 6 but this time verse 4
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men where were of old, men of renown.”
When I first read I thought it was odd to just state something to the effect of “Oh, yeah and there were people, really big, giants… The End.” See there is much more to the story than that.
From verse 4 we know the offspring that resulted from the union of these two groups of people the “Sons of God” and “Daughters of Men” were giants.
But why tell us this? Why does it matter?
Let’s look at some other translations to see if we can get a better understanding.
The New American Bible reads a little differently instead of saying the “Sons of God” it says the “Sons of Heaven” ; a couple other translations use this term of Sons of Heaven instead of Sons of God.
You could easily imagine the easy slip in translation. We think of God as the ruler of heaven and could easily think son of god and son of heaven are synonymous but a “son of heaven” just means you originated from somewhere above the earth it doesn’t mean you’re of God or worthy to be called by his name.
Several other translations of the bible also add an extra line to the beginning of this verse that says:
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went into the daughters of humans, who bore children to them”
Nephilim is a word that is used in the bible only to describe the origin of these giants. The word is believed to come from the ancient hebrew root word of n-p-l “to fall.”
Could it be that these giants were the offspring that resulted from the union of women with extraterrestrial beings? Fallen beings.
I believe God is the master of the universe, But I’d be willing to bet there is a .0001% portion of his creations who still choose to live outside commandments, despite them knowing full well who the great Elohim is. God allows his creations freedom and there may every once in a while one or two that want to take on the big man. That believe there way is better.
We read about a war in heaven, how Satan tried to take the Lord’s glory from him. You think he was the first or the last?
In the apocrypha the book of Enoch and the book of Jubilees explains this story further.
Book of Enoch
The Book of Enoch chapter 7 first mentions the extraterrestrial beings called the “Watchers” it doesn’t explain why they were given the name watchers but we can make an educated guess from reading the content.
It appears from the record that these extraterrestrial beings didn’t immediately marry women right away when they first arrived. In fact, we learn they were afraid to do so because they knew God would be angry with them, so what did they do?
They simply observed; they watched. Similar to the UFOs of today… just watching.
We read about this in chapter 7. The watchers had a leader named Samyaza. Samyaza tells his fellow brethren who are in total 200 that he wants to choose some of the women of earth to be his wives but he’s afraid of doing so because the crime is so severe.
His fellow watchers decide they will make an oath altogether that they will do the same as their leader desires and that they will all take wives of their choosing.
Enoch 7:7 “Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves by mutual execrations their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of mount Armon.
Somehow these extraterrestrial beings thought that if they were all guilty of the same crime that the punishment would be less severe than if only one of them were guilty.
The below verses explain what the initial offspring were like
Enoch 7:10 Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees.
7:11 And the women conceiving brought forth giants
7:12 Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all [which] the labor of men [produced]; until it became impossible to feed them;
7:13 When they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them;
7:14 And began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood.
7:15 Then the earth reproved the unrighteous
Even though these giants were much larger and stronger than their human counterparts they had difficulty surviving in large numbers because they would consume all of the nearby resources.
Another thing we learn about their offspring is that were not possessed of spirits sent from heaven but spirits already on this earth, in other words from demons.
Enoch 15:8 reads as follows:
“Now the giants, who have been born of spirit and of flesh, shall be called upon earth evil spirits, and on earth shall be their habitation Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation Evil spirits shall they be upon earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth.”
In other words the spirits that would inhabit the bodies created by the union of these women and the Watchers would be spirits from Satan’s realm, demons.
Remember in heaven a war was fought and Lucifer and his followers were cast down to earth.
When a woman is pregnant she creates a body for that child, but the spirit comes from heaven to inhabit that body. The watchers must have supposed it would work the same way for them but God did not allow it to work the same way for them.
The Watchers Teach Men
Another thing the watchers did was they brought with them all their superior intellect and understanding of the universe.
Chapter 8 of Enoch states they taught men how to make swords, shields, ornaments, paint, use of stones, dyes….etc….”So that the world became altered.”
In other words they taught so much technology to people that the world was not the same.
They also taught sorcerers, astronomy, physics, and dividers of roots… whatever that means.
But they also perverted religion. It says that impiety increased along with fornication, so did murder, and that the watchers transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
In addition Enoch 9:5 that they had “disclosed to the world all the secret things which are done in the heavens.”
So there was knowledge they disclosed to people that they lord didn’t want mankind to have at that time.
Verse 9 says “And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.”
How The Almighty Responds To The Watchers
If you haven’t read my post or watched my presentation about Zion then I encourage you to do so. It explains who Enoch was and why he is involved in this exchange between God and the Watchers.
See Enoch at this period in history is God’s high priest, holding all the rights and powers of the priesthood. He has communication with God and his power. He has established a nation/city called Zion.
The watchers and their giant offspring are no match for the strength of Zion.
In Enoch 12: 5-7 the lord talks with Enoch and gives a message for him to pass along to the watchers.
5 “Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station, who have been polluted with women.”
6 “And have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves wives, and who have been greatly corrupted on the earth;”
7 “That on the earth they shall never obtain peace and remission of sin. For they shall not rejoice in their offspring; they shall behold the slaughter of their beloved; shall lament for the destruction of their sons; and shall petition for ever; but shall not obtain mercy and peace.”
One of the things we learn from this verse is that the watchers had deserted whatever habitat in the universe that the lord had created for them. It appears they weren’t even supposed to be on earth in the first place.
Since there was no immediate reaction from the Lord due to this trespass we might suppose that this sin could be forgivable but their coming to earth and having intercourse with women wasn’t forgivable.
The canonical book of Jude1:6 also reaffirms this historic truth.
6 “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
When the watchers get this news from the great Elohim it is more than they can bear. They beseech Enoch to write for them a memorial of supplication that they might obtain forgiveness because at this time the watchers afraid to address the almighty themselves through prayer because of their great offense and accompanying fear and shame.
Enoch takes the watchers request to the Lord and his response to the watchers is the same as before with a few additional insights into their relationship with the Lord.
Enoch 15:1 states ….“You ought to pray for men, and not men for you.”
In other words, beings of the heavens ought to serve those on the earth and not the other way around.
Verse 3; “You being spiritual, holy, and possessing a life which is eternal, have polluted yourselves with women; have begotten in carnal blood; have lusted in the blood of men; and have done as those who are flesh and blood do.”
Verse 4 “These however die and perish.”
Verse 5 “Therefore have I given to them wives, that they might cohabit with them; that sons might be born of them; and that this might be transacted upon earth.”
Verse 6 “But you from the beginning were made spiritual, possess a life which is eternal, and not subject to death for ever.”
Verse 7 “Therefore I made not wives for you, because being spiritual, your dwelling is in heaven.”
From these verses we learn the Watchers had bodies much different than us mortals upon the earth. Their bodies were eternal in nature, not subject to death. At least not in a normal way. Later, you’ll see the great Elohim is quite capable of destroying them or binding them.”
Because they had eternal bodies they were not given wives or offspring. It either wasn’t in the cards for them… because let’s face it they didn’t really turn out to be great parents, they basically wrecked the earth.
If they were to have offspring it would have been at some later point in the eternities.
In summary what happens to the Watchers is the Lord sends some archangels Michael to announce their punishment, Raphel who binds the watchers leader Samyaza to await judgement day, and Gabriel who excites the offspring of the watchers against each other until they start slaughtering each other.
The Lord is also going to flood the earth to destroy mankind who have gone wicked as well as the Watchers and their offspring.
The archangels were able to bind the Watchers on earth so they could not leave the earth.
The watchers are directly responsible for the flood.
Reading over this story I can’t help but get the feeling that the Watchers also wanted to worshipped as Gods.
For example: We know the Watchers were quite well aware of who Elohim was. It appears that he was their creator. But despite this they perverted religion. Chapter 19 verse 2 of Enoch says the following:
“And being numerous in appearance made men profane, and caused them to err; so that they sacrificed to devils as to gods. For in the great day there shall be a judgment, with which they shall be judged, until they are consumed; and their wives also shall be judged, who led astray the angels of heaven that they might salute them.”
Why is this Important ?
We’ll get to this point a little later. I want to keep this story going in chronological order, but later we are going to look at some verses that suggest in the latter days watchers may have a brief visit to the earth. In fact, some of the attributes of the antichrist make me suspicious that we’ll be a watcher. Why would new watchers have any motivation to return? I have no idea? But the Lord does to the point that some of his holy prophets have seemed to prophesy about it.
If you struggle to believe this story?
If you struggle to believe this story consider watching a series on the history channel called “Ancient Aliens,” I have only watched a handful of episodes of this series but many archaeologists seem to claim the evidence for aliens visiting humans in the past is there. Not right in your face there but subtly it shows up and certain facts, structures and things can only be explained this way.
Near where I live is a bigfoot museum. When I first went to this museum I thought it would be boring. I thought, yeah… It’s all bullcrap. However, it is a great museum because by the end you think “okay, maybe there is something to this?”
There are literally over a 1000+ foot molds that have been found in the earth of these giant men that were anywhere from 9 to 14 ft tall. There are even a few bones that have been found. Is this the evidence of the watcher offspring that used to exist?
Giants After The Flood
Where did we leave off? The watchers were bound by the archangels. The giants killed each other, the rest died in the flood, along with most of mankind that had become wicked.
1st Peter 3:20 states…
…”when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.”
Alright, so why in the heck when we start to read the canonical version of the bible do we start to read about Giants again in the days of Abraham, then we read about them again as Moses leads the children of Israel back to the promised land. Lastly, we read about Goliath of Gath who was somewhere about 8.5ft to 9ft tall (disputes result from variances in the measurement of a cubit between cultures), joined with the philistines this is the last giant we read about. Interestingly when compared with King Og whose iron bed was somewhere around 14.5ft in length, Goliath is smaller.
What happened? Were these giants just really tall people? Were they the same offspring of the watchers? Was there another migration of watchers to the earth? What the heck happened?
The bible and even apocryphal writings to my understanding are silent on this answer. However, with some additional scriptures and pondering over the substances of certain verses I have come to make an educated guess as to what took place.
Abraham is Confederate with the Giants
In Genesis 14 we read about a big war that takes place with a league of nations. Several nations drawing upon their alliances. Here is a breakdown of who vs. who.
|League of Nations 1Kings of Shinar, Ellasar, Elam, and Tidal king of nations|
|League of Nations 2Kings of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, Bela|
The explanation of why this war happened is very brief. Apparently, some or all of the people on the League of Nations 2 (Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, Bela) were serving the king of Elam for 12 years. After 12 years they had enough and rebelled, this caused a war.
League of Nations 1 starts fighting and beating League of Nations 2. Verse 5 reads that they “Smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
6 “And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-paran, which is by the wilderness.”
The verses continue to state they beat down other inhabitants aligned with League of Nations 2 but you need to realize that Rephaims, Zuzims, Emims, and Horites are all giant people.
This war continues with League of Nations 1 beating the crap out of League of Nations 2. Many of the kings and nobles of Sodom and Gomorrah are killed in the Vale of Siddim and the remaining fled.
After Sodom and Gomorrah are beaten back League of Nations 1 makes there way over towards Lot’s estate and they capture Lot. Someone from lot’s estate escapes to inform Abraham that Lot has been captured.
From these we learn that Abraham is actually confederate with the giants. Perhaps not directly, but definitely at least indirectly because Abraham is in alliance with Mamre the Amorite, and thus they are aligned with league 2.
Abraham being an awesome uncle arms all his servants a small little force of 318 people and they go forth and this small little force beats the piss out of at least part of league of nations 1 because he rescues Lot and those of his estate and restores them.
We don’t know how much damage Abraham’s force did but it was substantial enough to make the opposing army retreat and changed the course of the war because later the king of Elam, Chedorlaomer is killed. In fact, you hear of Melchizedek who was a high priest of God and king of Salem who came to bless Abraham after hearing of Abraham’s great valor and bravery.
Children of Israel and The Giants
The next time we read about Giants in the canonical bible is in Numbers 13. In this story Moses has sent 12 people to go and spy out the land. 10 of the people that return come back and give an evil report telling the camp of Israel not to go into the land, that they cannot possess it.
Joshua and Caleb are the only two that have faith to go in and inhabit the land the Lord has commanded them to go and possess.
The other 10 men spoke against Caleb and Joshua and said the following in verses 31-33
31 …. “We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
What happens next is the 10 men persuade the camp of Israel to return to Egypt and seek pharaoh’s grace.
Think about that for a second. These israelites were ready to return to slavery despite all the miracles the Lord had preformed for them through Moses. These people must have been massive to make you second guess yourself and wonder if the Lord is still on your side.
The Lord has to speak from the tabernacle rebuking Israel to keep them from returning to Egypt. Because of this faithless act the Lord swore they would wander in the desert for 40 years. The Lord couldn’t work with this faithless generation. He had to wait until he could work with the next generation.
Interestingly, seeing miracles doesn’t necessarily build faith because the next generation had more faith and only some of them would have witnessed God’s miracles, at a young age.
Near the tail end of the 40 years of wandering in the Desert the first group of giants from King Og come out to fight Israel as they are getting ready to enter the promised land and the Israelites slaughter all of them.
We also read in Deuteronomy 2:19-22 prior to the Israelites arrival that the Lord destroyed some of the giants from before the descendents of Lot and Esau so Esau’s and Lot’s descendents could go and inhabit that particular part of the land.
Another thing this story helps bring some understanding is I could never understand why some parts in the old testament the Israelites were commanded to go and kill all the men, women, and children.
What did these people do that was so horrible that the Lord would command them to even kill the women and children? No answer is given to that question.
However, if they were giants possessed with evil spirits that were not supposed to possess bodies in the first place then that makes sense why the Lord would command such a thing.
Earliest Record of Giants Appearing After the Flood
Our earliest record of giants appearing after the flood is found in the book of Jubilees. I’m not sure why the book of Jubilees was considered non-canonical. I suspect it is because they don’t know the original author, and because it mentions watchers. Both those two things were certain to give a non-canonical status.
But it is considered canon among ethiopian orthodox church and among ethiopian jews, and is quoted several times by early christians.
Now in this setting the flood has been over for several generations, and Noah’s sons have started multiplying in the land to the point where they have started to divide up the land for inheritances.
However, as Noah’s posterity start to spread throughout the land they come in contact with giants (watcher offspring). Around the land of Canaan. Same place they were before the flood.
These giants start to kill some of Noah’s descendents. Read the verses below.
Jubilees 10: 1-6
- And in the third week of this jubilee the unclean demons began to lead astray the children of the sons of Noah, and to make to err and destroy them.
- And the sons of Noah came to Noah their father, and they told him concerning the demons which were leading astray and blinding and slaying his sons’ sons.
- And he prayed before the Lord his God, and said:
‘God of the spirits of all flesh, who hast shown mercy unto me
And hast saved me and my sons from the waters of the flood,
And hast not caused me to perish as Thou didst the sons of perdition;
For Thy grace has been great towards me,
And great has been Thy mercy to my soul;
Let Thy grace be lift up upon my sons,
And let not wicked spirits rule over them
Lest they should destroy them from the earth.
- But do Thou bless me and my sons, that we may increase and Multiply and replenish the earth.
- And Thou knowest how Thy Watchers, the fathers of these spirits, acted in my day: and as for these spirits which are living, imprison them and hold them fast in the place of condemnation, and let them not bring destruction on the sons of thy servant, my God; for these are malignant, and created in order to destroy.
- And let them not rule over the spirits of the living; for Thou alone canst exercise dominion over them. And let them not have power over the sons of the righteous from henceforth and for evermore.’
Now I have bolded a few things to draw your attention. At first it mentions demons, leading astraying, then destroying and slaying the sons of Noah. How can demons slay? They can’t, at least not directly unless they have a body which they did in the case of the giants.
Remember how the bodies of the direct offspring of the watchers were possessed with demon spirits instead of spirits from heaven. Noah says the father’s of these spirits were the watchers, and that these spirits are living.
He is obviously speaking about the giants. He says these are malignant and only created in order to destroy. He asked that these evil demon spirits in the bodies of giants rule not over the living spirits, his posterity.
Sidenote: If you’re interested I understand the phrase the sons of perdition to mean the watchers. My definitive understanding of a son of perdition is someone who has a pure knowledge of God (most of us don’t have that and live by faith) but then transgresses against him by slaying the innocent. Cain was a son of perdition, Judas who betrayed Christ. The watchers slayed the children of men and had a full knowledge of God’s existence.
Jubilees 10: 8-9
8: And the chief of the spirits, Mastêmâ, came and said: ‘Lord, Creator, let some of them remain before me, and let them harken to my voice, and do all that I shall say unto them; for if some of them are not left to me, I shall not be able to execute the power of my will on the sons of men; for these are for corruption and leading astray before my judgment, for great is the wickedness of the sons of men.’
9: And He said: Let the tenth part of them remain before him, and let nine parts descend into the place of condemnation.’
From these verses we gather from Noah’s prayer the Lord may end up wiping out all of these watcher offspring, but before this happens a chief of the spirits comes to beg God to keep some of them.
The Lord decides he is going to wipe out 90% of them but leave 10%. Who is this spirit that spoke with God? Verse 11 reveals that
11: “And we did according to all His words: all the malignant evil ones we bound in the place of condemnation and a tenth part of them we left that they might be subject before Satan on the earth.”
Thus we see it was Satan that spoke with God that shouldn’t be hard for Christians to believe. In the canonical bible we read about Satan meeting with the Lord to discuss Job’s life. I believe the reason for such communications is that even though Satan is completely opposed to the Lord and wishes to destroy him, the Lord keeps Satan around because he does serve the lord’s purpose in some way.
Satan tries and tempts people in the world. People who choose not to follow God’s adversary are vindicated to be worthy to receive the rewards God will place on them in this life and the afterlife. Satan’s ill will towards people actually helps people to develop their true eternal character, even a deep sense of love and respect for God. Newton’s 2nd law; equal and opposite reaction. The need for opposition.
The Lord later uses these giants to try the faith of Israel as they return with Moses into the promised land. It helped to show the true character of the Israelites. The first generation was faithless, the 2nd generation about 40 years later was not.
How did the Giants Survive the Flood?
Again the biblical record on this is silent, but from the book of Jubilees we can gather that it was some of the watcher offspring that survived. None of the watchers did.
I don’t believe that account disagrees with 1 Peter 3:20 since that states only 8 souls survived, because perhaps the giants aren’t considered souls, and perhaps these giants were not on the earth at the time the flood took place?
Remember the Lord’s archangels bound the watchers not their offspring. Well how would the giants temporarily leave the earth?
There is one other writing that might give us some insight into what happened. Philo of Alexandria of was Jewish Greek philosopher that lived during the time of Jesus. He wrote the following, in greek of course:
“And when the angels of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful, they took unto themselves wives of all of them who they chose. Those beings, souls hovering in the air. And let no one suppose that what is here stated is a fable, for it is necessarily true that the universe must be filled with living things in all its parts…. (On the Giants, verses 6&7).
Souls hovering in the air. Were the watchers able to levitate? Or did they arrive in a ship that was able to levitate? 200 of them showed up on earth.
Usually when we think of angels appearing on earth we don’t hear of any ship for transport. I don’t think they need one, but as we have established with Daniel’s vision a Watcher is not an angel. Angels seem to have a duty or connection to this earth. Watchers in general are not supposed to be here on earth.
Perhaps the watchers did come in a ship and that was able to hover in the Air? It would be poetic if their own abominable offspring is what destroyed the watchers. If that is true, this ship hasn’t been found.
I don’t think it matters too much how they survived; we just know from the record of Jubilees and the canonical old testament that some of these offspring did survive?
Are there Any Giants Alive Today?
I don’t know. Goliath who was with the philistines seems to be the last recorded. You can also now get the idea of where David found the faith to slay Goliath. His ancestors had done the same and he believed he could as well.
Today we do here of people who claim encounters with a sasquatch. Listening to some of these testimonials is interesting. Here people say words like “It looked just like a man, but bigger and with hair.”
I remember listening to another encounter a hunter claimed to have with a sasquatch that chased him. When he was asked why he didn’t shoot it he said “It looked too much like a person, I couldn’t.” Why? Well probably because he might think he’d be up for murder charges for killing an actual person.
I don’t know if these stories are false or true but I don’t think it would be completely crazy to think it’s possible that a small handful of these creatures might be hiding in the untouched frontiers of the world.
Did The Giants Breed with Other Humans?
We read that these giants were possessed with evil spirits, but did they reproduce with other humans and create other offspring that were not possessed with devils? The Bible and apocrypha records don’t seem to give any answer to this but here is an odd verse about Noah in Genesis of the Old Testement?
“These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”
What does it mean that Noah was perfect in his generations? I don’t think it means he was perfect. Only Christ is perfect, and to say he was perfect and a just man sounds odd to say, They don’t clarify one another but confuse, wait was he perfect or just man?
However, “perfect in his generations” I can only think means 1 or 2 things.
- It either means he was from a bloodline that never apostatized or drifted in their zeal towards God which is possible. Because Noah was nine generations from Adam and big names like Seth, Enoch, Methusaleh, and Lamech are in that bloodline.
- Or two it could mean that his bloodline was not corrupted by the breeding of watcher offspring with mankind and was therefore one of the reasons he’d be chosen to repopulate the earth after the flood.
Why Does This Story Matter?
It’s not just a cool story, to tell around the campfire while they’re passing around the ganja. No, there is actually a reason we need to know this strange part of our past.
I don’t know why this is but there are patterns from the past that seem to repeat themselves in the future. Just as the watchers had corrupted the world prior to flood they will again return and corrupt mankind prior to the earth being burned by fire.
Although, I don’t believe it will last for as long. God has promised in the latter-days he will hasten the time of his coming for his elect’s sake. In other words, events will be compressed, and things will happen very quickly. The world will seems so strange to us with all these unprecedented events happening so quickly.
So who prophesied about the watcher’s return? Well, Enoch did and the apostle Jude quoted him on it. Let’s look at the book of Jude.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not (canaanites and unfaithful israelites) .
What is Jude speaking about in these verses? He’s talking about men of the very distant past who brought a great condemnation upon them. He’s saying he will bring this to the remembrance of the saints because they once knew this but at this point it has faded into an old fable. Why, I don’t know perhaps wicked apostate priests had some desire to do away with the story.
Verse 6 let’s us know full well who Jude is referring to .
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Who were the angels or supernatural alien beings that left their first estate (the heavens)? The watchers.
In verses 7 & 8 Jude goes on comparing the watchers to other people such as Sodom & Gomorrha. Verse 8 the filthy dreamers may be the canaanites.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Later verses Jude refers to Cain and Baalam and others. Why? Because he is drawing on the similarities of their ideologies and practices to those of the watchers.
Then verse 13 he comes back to the watchers.
13…..wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Stars don’t really wander in the heavens. They are affixed (I mean yeah technically all celestial bodies in the are moving at a rapid pace but the laws of gravity keep them relatively in the same space to each other), and they don’t reserve themselves to darkness forever. A star physically can’t do that unless it implodes over millions of years to become a neutron star.
So how do stars wander? Perhaps if they are ships in the sky reflecting light like a star they wander? Watchers who’s condemnation put them darkness, cut off from the light of Christ for ever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
Jude is referencing Enoch. What did Enoch prophecy about? Well obviously it was the latter-days because he is talking about Christ coming with his 10 thousands of saints to execute judgement.
He will come to judge all those who are evil but also those whose “mouths speak great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage”
Do extraterrestrial beings have an advantage over us? If they can cross the universe to visit us, then yeah, I’d say they have a severe technological advantage over us.
In the old records the watchers seemed to want to be worshipped as gods. They taught mankind technology, perverted religion even though they were fully aware who Elohim was and his control over this planet and them.
As people today have moved Christ far from their hearts and thoughts, people will readily worship these beings if they haven’t set a determination in their heart as to who their god is.
Let’s look at what Enoch said. The following is a translation of Enoch 1:1-8: 2:1 taken from R.H. Charles 1917 translation of the Ethopian text, with clarifications extracted from the AF Greek translation.
The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly, Enoch, a righteous man, who was with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me. From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period, on account of the elect.
Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from his habitation, the Holy and Mighty One, the God of the world: Who will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested in the strength of his power from heaven.
All the Watchers will be terrified and those who are hiding in all the ends of the earth will sing. All the ends of the earth will be shaken, and trembling and great fear will seize the Watchers unto the ends of the earth. Great fear and trembling shall seize them, even to the ends of the earth.
The lofty mountains shall be troubled, and the exalted hills depressed, melting like a honeycomb in the flame. The earth shall be immerged, and all things which are in it perish; while judgement shall come upon all, even upon all the righteous: But to them shall he give peace: he shall preserve the elect, and towards them exercise clemency.
Then shall all belong to God; be happy and blessed; and the splendor of the Godhead shall illuminate them. Behold he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him.
Enoch spoke of our generation. The generation at the time of the 2nd coming. He said there would be Watchers during this time.
Is it so hard to believe? Do we not now have UFO sightings in the thousands? Are they not doing what they did before? Watching, observing, trying to figure out how they are going to run the place.
Jude also spoke about the watchers in the latter-days about the Watchers in the latter-days referencing Enoch’s prophecy. Jude also said
Is the Antichrist a Watcher?
When Jude spoke of the Watchers he compared their sinful deeds with other nations. He also told the church to remember the words of the apostles who had touched upon the same subject.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
However, I can’t think of any other apostle who spoke on this same subject. I’m certain we don’t have all their writings but there is a writing from Paul to church members in Thessaloniki about the antichrist that would come in the latter-days.
2nd Thessalonians 2:2-5 reads as follows:
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
In this letter Paul is reminding the saints in this area that 2nd coming of Christ will not happen until there is a falling away. This first happened when all the apostles died there was a lack of authoritative priesthood leadership, christianity split into different sects which went to war against each other.
It continues today as people as a whole become less and less interested in Christianity, and this general decline will continue until the antichrist will be revealed.
Let’s look at some of the traits of the prophesied antichrist that makes me think he will be a watcher.
- He will demand to be worshipped as a God and will desecrate God’s temple.
The watchers wanted to worshipped and cherished as gods. The antichrist will as well and as verse 4 above read he will desecrate God’s temple. As to whether this temple is the temple in Jerusalem that the Jewish people will rebuild at a later date or if it is some other temple is not clear, but we should recognize it when it happens.
Revelations 13:8 explains those who have not chosen Christ as their God will worship the antichrist.
- He will be able to work signs and lying wonders.
2nd Thess: 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
- He will speak blasphemies against the Most High.
Just like the Watchers of old who were well aware of Elohim their God and the God of the earth they were visiting they spoke blasphemies against him, corrupting the pure religion.
Rev 13: 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
- He will have power to overcome the saints. At least temporarily.
Both Daniel and John make it clear that this being will have power to overcome the saints. Not permanently of course because we do read about later being driven by the house of Israel, and later Christ destroys him at his coming.
However there will be a time where he will have power to oppress the saints. To what extent, how long I don’t know only the Lord does. I imagine the Lord allows this in order to test his saints. In the end those who vindicate themselves before the Lord will be privilege to dwell near to him in mount zion and receive all he has for his faithful children.
Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Daniel 8: 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
- He will be extremely powerful
The Lord’s plan for dealing with the Watchers
When the watchers show the righteous don’t need to fear, although they’ll have much reason to. The Lord has a plan for defeating these beings. Although they will be highly advanced when compared to us. They will be nothing compared to the Lord when he comes.
Prophecy seems to indicate a one two blow to the watchers. The 2nd hit will be when Christ appears at the second coming with his resurrected beings and destroys them.
The first blow will come from the lost ten tribes of Israel who return with power enough to drive back the antichrist. (If you haven’t watched my presentation on the lost ten tribes then you’ll be uhh.. Lost as I talk about this part).
Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and John littered the bible with many verses regarding the return of these people. John spoke about them raising and ensign, establishing a nation.
Isaiah spoke about them as well but in 13:5 he tells what the first do when they come back.
“They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.”
And in the book of Joel 2
1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
These Lost 10 tribes of the house of Israel that are lost to mankind but not to God will return in a huge army. They will drive back the antichrist and establish Zion where the Lord will gather in the righteous from among the wicked nations.
They work to establish a nation and the beginning of the kingdom of God. This is their mission.
These two kingdoms will co-exist for some years on the earth, like polar opposites, but they will not co-exist for too long.
I should probably add a note of caution. I have no idea if all the UFOs we see today are from Watchers. Perhaps the Lord does extend an invite to righteous extraterrestrials to visit us. I don’t know, just don’t attack the first UFO that shows up, okay.
You’ve learned about Aliens and Sasquatches. I grew up in the 90s. Back then I didn’t really believe these things and most people would have called you looney if you did. I think that is because it is easy to discredit things when we can’t make sense of them. Having the bible and other scripture help us to make sense of things, to know all truth, even the ancient truths that have become hidden and faded into fable.
Hope you enjoyed; leave a comment. Cray Cray times ahead so get yourself prepared. You may visit other posts I have written on emergency preparedness or get our handout that walks you through the A to Z on what to do.
Love ya, God Bless!
