The mysterious origins of the Nephilim, often debated and seldom explored within the church, have become a subject of discussion in contemporary Christian circles. In a recent exploration of this intriguing topic, best-selling author, digital creator, pastor, and preacher Apostle Alexander Pagani engaged in a conversation shedding light on the Nephilim with Pastor Mike Signorelli.
Before delving into the discourse, it’s essential to establish that beliefs regarding the existence of a pre-Adamite race do not impact salvation. This conversation revolves around scriptural interpretations, providing an interesting dialogue rather than a doctrinal necessity.
The Origins of the Demonic Realm
Apostle Pagani introduces the discussion by connecting the Nephilim to Ephesians 6, where principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places are addressed. According to Pagani, understanding the Nephilim involves acknowledging the belief that the sons of God intermingled with human daughters, leading to a broader understanding of the demonic realm and multiple angelic rebellions.
Apostle Pagani introduces the concept of hybridization, drawing parallels with the Holy Spirit overshadowing Mary during the conception of Christ. He terms this phenomenon “Theo Anthropo,” emphasizing the dual nature of Jesus as both fully God and fully man. This, according to Pagani, aligns with the idea of angels mating with humans.
The biblical reference to the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4 is brought into focus, describing them as the offspring of the union between the sons of God and human daughters—heroes of old, men of renown.
The discussion then delves into angelic rebellions, starting with the morning stars rejoicing and the sons of God singing for joy at the time of creation. Pagani posits that this pre-fall state changed with the first angelic rebellion led by Lucifer, resulting in the creation of hell. The subsequent rebellion, as mentioned in Genesis 6, involves the sons of God, also referred to as watchers.
According to Pagani, these fallen sons of God shared forbidden knowledge and technology with humanity, creating a unique second rebellion. He suggests that these angels, originally created to help govern the earth, fell in love with the newly created female species, leading to a distinct rebellion.
The conversation explores the idea that angels possess free will and emotions, emphasizing that their ability to choose to serve is an expression of their love for God.
They then delve into the idea that, according to New Testament scriptures, believers can entertain angels unaware. This phrase, not disputed among theologians, suggests the possibility of engaging in full human dialogues with angels without recognizing their celestial nature.
Drawing parallels from biblical examples, such as Abraham’s interaction with the Lord and two angels in Genesis, the conversation emphasizes the tangible interactions between celestial beings and humans. Even unbelievers in Sodom engaged in dialogues with angels, highlighting the complex dynamics between different realms.
The discourse then navigates into the New Testament, where Paul speaks figuratively about women covering themselves not only as a display of submission but also “because of the angels.” This phrase raises questions about the ongoing free will of angels and the potential for rebellion, emphasizing that angels, including Michael and Gabriel, still retain the opportunity to rebel, although scripture suggests they never will.
The logical progression leads to the discussion of angels observing the newly created species—humans, particularly the female, referred to as the “Woo man.” The rarity of this creation increases its value in the eyes of the sons of God. This unique species, capable of procreation in the image and likeness of God, becomes a point of curiosity and, eventually, obsession for the watchers.
The sons of God, captivated by the concept of family and covenant, choose to leave their heavenly abode and descend to Earth. Here, we delve into the idea that marriage, often considered an earthly institution, originated on Earth and was later incorporated into heavenly concepts.
Addressing the Western evangelical view of angels as immaterial beings, the article emphasizes the tangible interaction between extraterrestrial entities and the physical domain. It challenges misconceptions about angels and promotes a Middle Eastern perspective when interpreting scripture.
As the discussion unfolds, Pastor Mike and Apostle Pagani explore parallels between the resurrected Jesus and the potential anatomy of angels, adding layers of complexity to the overall exploration. The descent of the sons of God to Earth becomes a pivotal point in understanding the genesis of the Nephilim and the intricate interplay between celestial beings and humanity.
Giants & Misconceptions
As we traverse through the biblical narrative, we address the misconception surrounding giants like Goliath. Dismissing the notion that these beings could be associated with conditions like gigantism or disability, we emphasize the supernatural characteristics of the Nephilim, distinct from any physical deformity.
The scriptural accounts point to the existence of giants in the post-flood era, referred to as “Rephaim” or “Zuzim.” These beings are considered derivatives of the Nephilim, maintaining a genetic connection but exhibiting variations in their hybrid nature.
The narrative weaves through the descendants of Cain and their increasing darkness, eventually leading to the rise of these post-flood giants. The term “Rephaim” signifies a copy of a copy, indicating a genetic lineage with a majority human composition yet retaining traces of the Nephilim’s divine ancestry.
Examining biblical figures like Ogg, we find the continuation of this genetic strain. Ogg, a giant king, adds another layer to the multifaceted tapestry of Nephilim descendants. His significant stature, combined with references in archeology, suggests a scale beyond the ordinary human dimensions.
God’s instructions to Abraham regarding the conquest of Canaan shed light on the specific targeting of the land inhabited by these giants. The land promised to Abraham was not merely a random geographical area but a strategic strip, a hotspot of Nephilim activity.
The concept of wiping out these beings, often criticized as genocide, is reinterpreted as a divine intervention to eliminate a genetic strain not of earthly origin. The focus shifts from conventional ethical debates to a recognition of the necessity to curtail the resurgence of these hybrid extraterrestrial entities.
The narrative confronts Western interpretations that tend to downplay the supernatural elements, asserting that the biblical accounts speak of an otherworldly species rather than human deformities. The giants, existing as a constant threat to the divine plan, necessitated extraordinary measures to ensure the preservation of humanity’s intended genetic purity.
As we unravel the layers of biblical history, it becomes evident that the giants were not confined to isolated incidents but persisted, requiring divine intervention to maintain the integrity of the human bloodline. The intricate interplay of genetics, divine purpose, and the ongoing battle against these Nephilim descendants forms a compelling narrative that challenges traditional perspectives and prompts a deeper exploration of biblical mysteries.
Going back to the aftermath of the flood, as God wipes out the Nephilim and genetically modified sentient beings, we see the emergence of unregistered spirits, decommissioned and left to wander the earth. These entities, once part of the unauthorized hybrid experiment, become what we now refer to as demons. Their existence is tied to the prince of the power of the air, operating under the rule of fallen angels and principalities.
The term “heroes of old,” used in the Bible, aligns with the Greek concept of demigods. These were beings with a mix of divine and earthly origins, echoing stories found in various mythologies. The Bible, in presenting these narratives, doesn’t dismiss them as fables but underscores a deeper truth behind the myths. It invites us to consider the possibility that similar beings existed, and their stories are reflections of historical events.
Myths Vs. Fables
This exploration challenges us to distinguish between myths (exaggerated truths) and fables (lies). The ancient cities and structures, discovered by modern archaeology, corroborate with indigenous accounts, acknowledging the presence of advanced civilizations predating known histories. The precision in construction and technological aspects suggests a level of knowledge that goes beyond conventional human capabilities.
In summary, the law of only mentions emphasizes the uniqueness of certain biblical narratives, such as Samson’s story, and prompts us to delve deeper into their underlying truths. The existence of demi-gods and advanced civilizations, while often dismissed as myth, aligns with biblical accounts and archaeological findings, urging us to reconsider our understanding of history and the supernatural.
Pastor Mike and Apostle Pagani discuss the supernatural occurrences in Mark chapter five. They delve into the concept that demons could be disembodied spirits of the Nephilim, drawing connections from biblical narratives. The discussion touches on fallen angels, possession, and the unique desires of demons and Nephilim.
As they navigate through the intricacies of the topic, they emphasize the importance of understanding spiritual authority and deliverance. The conversation also extends to the idea that Christians can house decommissioned spirits and the need to exercise authority through Christ. In light of this, we encourage readers to seek deliverance and spiritual freedom.
