    @ZCONCEPT...our hyperactive friend was right there; there is the Nephilim that we all know but there is a Nelphium (or something of the sort) as well ... I made the same mistake this afternoon LOL!

    YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG !!
    I just did a major search here at AfterDawn.com
    for Nelphium and did not find one single post.
    If you want to prove otherwise, simply post a
    link to any thread started by a so-called Nelphium
    ( or LORD Nelphium for that matter ).
    Hope you can meet this challenge....GOOD LUCK !!

    @ZCONCEPT...As I mentioned, I simply said I saw a name that was similar to our Nephs (Nephilim) which momentarily caught me off guard ... what is it with this particular thread that makes such a simple statement an argumentative matter?

    If I see his name, I'll edit and post it but I'll be damned if I'll be challenged for such a simple observation. I think we all need to stop reading our friends posts ... we're beginning to act with the same paranoia!

    The meaning of life is: kill other things so you can survive long enough to reproduce.




    That's it. Everything else is just filling time...

    I knew there was no Nelphium ( or LORD Nelphium )

    Nice to see you tried to find a Nelphium. Most people
    don't even try to back up their claims.

    Thanks for saying I was correct ( much appreciated !! ).

    Is it possible to make bold print bolder. What is there about
    that's so difficult to understand?

    End of conversation: I'll not be engaged and baited in this manner. Save it for vgaddict8.

    The Fall of the Nephilim

    Set in the days when superhuman beings lived among men, and faith was assaulted by evil, Noah, having received a commission from the "Gardener" (Jesus), is building the ark. Lucifer targets Noah for destruction, knowing that if he stops Noah, he will have won his battle against the Creator.


    Sometimes I'm amazed at a writer's simple creativity, and by everyone else's lack thereof when it comes to Scripture and tradition. Case in point: for all our lives, we've seen pictures, from children's books on up, of Noah building the ark out in the middle of a big field, while people laughed at him. What most of us have probably never even thought of is this: Satan knew the prophecies. He heard them. He knew God was planning on destroying the world and preserving humanity through Noah. So did he just sit back and watch? Motivate people to just laugh? The Bible says the world was filled with violence. Did all that violence just happen to stay away from the area where the ark was being built?

    Douglas Hirt asked himself those very basic questions, along with many others, and came up with the absolutely fascinating triogy, the Cradleland Chronicles. This final book picks up the story where most of us think we're familiar with: the building of the ark.

    If you've read the first two books in this series, you know where Noah gains protection of sorts as he sets out to do the task God has assigned to him. (If you haven't read them, what are you waiting for?) Thus, there's somewhat of a sense of fatalism about this book. We all know who ends up on the ark, and therefore who doesn't, so it's simply a question of wondering when various characters we've come to know are going to die (or turn away). Still, in some cases, it's the stuff that myths are made of (seriously - Hirt has thrown in many hints at possible "sources" for various mythologies).

    Some of you visiting this site are no doubt wondering about the spaceship on the cover. Isn't this series set pre-Flood? Yes, it is. But think on it this way: if our scientists could have 800+ years of life to research and study, what wonders could they devise? Various extra-biblical sources have implied this, as well, and it's fascinating to contemplate. This entire series plays the "what if" card many, many times, and always in a way that's completely fascinating.

    There's also a few hints toward the end that the series is not over... and yet this is the final book of the series. What that means, I'm not sure. I'll be keeping an eye on the website, myself, and eagerly awaiting whatever comes next. Highly Recommended.

    I was in the seminary many years ago and we would have a good time with the biblical superhumans who were the product those cast out and their union with our mere mortal woman. There are many who think the Nephilim are still very much alive and well. Anne Rice wrote a novel "Taltos" which narrated the hidden life of a taltos or nephilim. I thought I'd add this to Irelands post ... our own Neph has quite a reputation to live up to!

    Genesis 6:4 states "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days --and also afterwards-- when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown." The Nephilim were a race of giants that were produced by the sexual union of the sons of God (presumably fallen angels) and the daughters of men. Translated from the Hebrew texts, "Nephilim" means "fallen ones." They were renowned for their strength, prowess, and a great capacity for sinfulness.

    The origination of the Nephilim begins with a story of the fallen angels. Shemhazai, an angel of high rank, led a sect of angels in a descent to earth to instruct humans in righteousness. The tutelage went on for a few centuries, but soon the angels pined for the human females. After lusting, the fallen angels instructed the women in magic and conjuring, mated with them, and produced hybrid offspring: the Nephilim.

    The Nephilim were gigantic in stature. Their strength was prodigious and their appetites immense. Upon devouring all of humankind's resources, they began to consume humans themselves. The Nephilim attacked and oppressed humans and were the cause of massive destruction on the earth.

    Two texts of central import to the story of the Nephilim, the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, mention several names for the Nephilim. The diverse kinds of these giants are cited in several passages. They are variously referred to as Emim, or "Terrors" (Gen. 14:5; Deut. 2:10), Rephaim, or "Weakeners" or "Dead Ones" (2 Sam. 23:13; 1 Chron. 11:15), Gibborim, or "Giant Heroes" (Job 16:4), Zamzummim, or "Achievers" (Deut. 2:10), Anakim, or "Long-necked" (Deut. 2:10; Josh. 11:22, 14:15), and Awwim or "Devastators" and "Serpents." Other giants are mentioned in these texts as well, such as Goliath (2 Sam. 21:19), a giant with twelve fingers and twelve toes who is mentioned as one of the Rephaim (2 Sam. 21:20), and a tall Egyptian (1 Chron. 11:23). The passage of Numbers 13:26-33 recounts the Nephilim of Canaan that Joshua and the other Hebrew spies saw. Furthermore, according to Judaic lore, a certain one of the Nephilim, Arba, built a city, Kiriath Arba, which was named for its builder and is now known as Hebron.

    The wickedness of the Nephilim carried with it a heavy toll. Genesis 6:5 alludes to the corruption that the Nephilim had caused amongst humans and themselves: "The Lord saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become..." Their evil rebellion had incurred both the wrath and grief of God. God instructed the angel Gabriel to ignite a civil war among the Nephilim. He also chose Enoch, a righteous man, to inform the fallen angels of the judgment pronounced on them and their children. God did not allow the fallen angels any peace, for they could not lift their eyes to heaven and were later to be chained. The end of the Nephilim came about in the war incited by Gabriel, in which the giants eventually annihilated each other.
