Some Information about the People called the Nephilim

 

 

First of all the New Testament was significantly influenced by the book of 1Enoch.  Many early Church fathers were inspired by 1Enoch.  Many copies of 1Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. 1Enoch was probably one of the most authoritative and popular scriptures of the Qumran Community.  After the fourth century A.D. 1Enoch was apparently suppressed as heretical by the Church due to its references to the physicality of the fallen angels who were said to have had sexual relations with the ‘daughters of men.’.  The entire Book of Enoch not discovered again until 1773. It was brought to Europe from Ethiopia. 

 

The book survived as a whole only in Ethiopia. Why? Was it destroyed by the church?  1Enoch is directly quoted in Jude and 2Peter of the New Testament in reference to danger of a perverted form of Christian belief which claimed that it was only necessary to have faith. The overriding concern of these two New Testament books is that the believer feels that he or she is otherwise above the biblical laws and commandments. This belief mainly took the form of sensual and sexual indulgence. Jude and 2Peter reject such licentiousness and state that the fate of such believers will be like the angels or "Sons of God" who sinned by descending from heaven and having intercourse with daughters of men. (See Genesis 6:1-4).  The story of these "fallen angels" is discussed in 1Enoch. The Nephilim of the Bible are the Nodites of the Urantia Book (UB 856) and are the descendants of the original disloyal ‘Dalamatia staff of one hundred’ (UB 758), and who became the ‘eighth race to appear on Urantia’ (UB 857).

 

Since many readers probably have not read 1Enoch, I would like to present at some length the parts that are revelant to our present discussion, along with some commentary as we proceed. The 1Enoch text quotes, unless otherwise indicated will be taken from The Book of Enoch, from the Ethiopic, literally translated by Richard Laurence, LL.D., Archbishop of Cashel, Late Professor of Hebrew in the University of Oxford, 1882. The biblical references in parentheses are part of the translation and are not my comments.  These references are Biblical verses that are felt to be related to 1Enoch by the Archbishop.

 

1Enoch 1:1 The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble; to the rejection of all the wicked and ungodly (Psalms 1). Enoch, a righteous man, was with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision which was in the heavens (Genesis 5:24). This the angel showed me.

 

1Enoch 1:2 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. (Daniel 12:4).  Parts of 1Enoch are written specifically for the sake of those who elect God’s will during the time of trouble, in the "distant" messianic period, now about to begin.

 

1Enoch 1:3 Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from this habitation, the Holy and Mighty One, the God of the world.

 

Enoch conversed with Melchizedek "on account of" the elect. The Mighty One, God of the World, is Melchizedek who goes forth from his heavenly "habitation" with strength and power, riding the white horse of Revelation to put an end to war, persecution, and terror. This God of the world:

 

1Enoch 1:4 ...will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested in the strength of his power from heaven.

 

1Enoch 1:5 All shall be afraid, and the Watchers be terrified.

 

1Enoch 1:6 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 judgment shall come upon all, even upon all the righteous (Revelation 20:11-15). 

 

Melchizedek will visibly "appear with his hosts." How so? The Watchers are probably the descendants of those who had been "cast out of heaven," (the Dalamatia 100) who are from the Nodite (Nephilim) racial line. Are these some of the "princes" of the world, the powerful and heartless that run our world system from behind the scenes. Many of these behind the scene leaders apparently come from "royal" lineages. They are terrified, as they should be, when Melchizedek comes. As many other times stated in scripture, the hills are made low during cataclysmic tectonic activity. Notice that all those in (but not above or on) the earth perish, i.e. those hiding in mountains and subterranean locations.  All people are then subject to individual judgment according to prophecy. Further information on those who elect God’s will follows next.

 

1Enoch 1:7 But to them shall he give peace: he shall preserve the elect, and towards them exercise clemency.

1Enoch 1:8 Then shall all belong to God; be happy and blessed; and the splendor of the Godhead shall illuminate them (Isaiah 40:5; 65:21-25).

 

The elect are physically "preserved" probably to help build a new world from the old.

 

1Enoch 2 Behold he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all of flesh for every thing which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him.  (Jude 14,15).

 

Are these "ten thousands of his saints" the "hosts" of 1Enoch 1:4?  The "wicked ones" behind the scene will be exposed and dealt with. Mankind will be rid of Caligastia (the devil) and like-minded men forever.

 

1Enoch 92:14 Sinners shall be delivered up into the hands of the righteous, who during its completion shall acquire habitations by their righteousness; and the house of the great King shall be established for praises for ever. After that, in the ninth week, shall the judgment of righteousness be revealed to the whole world. (House = Third Temple, great King = Melchizedek)

 

1Enoch 92:15 Every work of the ungodly shall disappear from the whole earth; the world shall be marked for destruction; and all men shall be on the lookout for the path of integrity.

 

1Enoch 92:16 And after this, on the seventh day of the tenth week, there shall be an everlasting judgment, which shall be executed upon the Watchers; and a spacious eternal heaven shall spring forth in the midst of the angels. (watchers, race of Nodites?)

 

(Revelations 21:1, 22:3-5). (Rebellion ended)

 

Here are some references about the devil and the rebellion.  UB 833 was difficult to combat since invisible.  UB 602 is the "devil"  UB 753 cannot coerce any normal human will  UB 610 still free (along with Daligastia) to prosecute his nefarious schemes.  (my parentheses)  UB 745 Caligastia "one hundred" lost immortality through rebellion.  UB 742 Daligastia and Caligastia are secondary Lanondek sons. Lucifer is a primary Lanondek son.

 

Caligastia and Daligastia are still here. What "schemes" are they involved in? Can we find and recognize their activities in the world today or are they so impotent that they do not even register on the scales of human activity? What difference does their presence make in the world around us? How would our planet, our nation, our lives be different without their presence? There are two mistakes that can be made with regard to evil. One is to be blind to it and therefore become powerless to effectively overcome it. The second mistake is to overly focus on and stress evil.

 

This blinds us to the good around us, robs us of our inner peace and creates undo fear and paranoia. Evil and sin exist, but they remain powerless relevant to the destiny of any soul. Rebellion against God, the very source of being and all reality, is tantamount to cosmic insanity. It is suicidal and bears its own seed of self-destruction. God allows it, because true freedom requires it and true freedom is necessary to any prospect of true love, and true love, the love a Father for His children is the foundation of the world.

 

Emily Dickinson says it the best, as usual, "Evil is the leisure of God’s Will" –it is the transient shadow cast by God’s ever-increasing light of life. Before leaving this topic let’s continue down the line of iniquitous ones and consider the Caligastia 100:

 

UB 747 Nod was the leader of the Caligastia’s staff of one hundred.

UB 758 Nodites were the descendants of disloyal Dalamatia staff of one hundred

UB 856 Nodite was both a racial and cultural term. They were the eighth Urantian race.

UB 857 The Sumerian descendants of the Nodites produced the inscribed clay tablets of ancient Sumer. (which are in our possession).

UB 856 Nodites are one half the ancestry of the secondary midwayers. (Adamites the other)

UB 856 legend had represented the Nodites as gods who came down and mated with daughters of men (referred to in Genesis and 1Enoch).

 

1Enoch speaks about a race of people who are descended from the offspring of "the sons of God who mated with the daughters of men." This race is referred to as the Nephilim, which corresponds to the Nodite race of the Urantia Book. This inter-racial union between Nodites and the daughters of man is blamed for the evil and sin that resulted in "the flood," by which God purified the earth. Enoch again identifies "an evil race" which is associated with the evil harvest of the messianic period. This raises the question of whether or not there are still present, relatively pure line descendants of this ancient Nodite race? Is this the race that has been associated with royalty throughout the centuries? If so, this would explain the royal links between the ruling class, the Power Elite, and the secret societies. Who are they, where are they, and what role, if any, will they play in the messianic period? Lets consider further the topic of evil, sin, and iniquity:

 

UB 2064 We are equipped to overcome evil with good, vanquish hate by love, to destroy fear with a courageous and living faith in truth.

 

UB 1984 In the half-civilized man there still lurks an evil brutality which seeks to vent itself upon those who are superior in wisdom and spiritual attainment.

UB 1982 (Regarding Jesus’ Crucifixion) God in heaven did not will it, neither did the archenemies of Jesus dictate it, though they did much to insure that unthinking and evil mortals would thus reject the bestowal Son.

 

UB 1940 Jesus looking them (apostles) over said, "I have told you how much I desired to have this supper with you, knowing how the evil forces of darkness have conspired to bring about the death of the Son of Man. 

 

With this statement, Jesus would be branded a religious fanatic and conspiracy theorist in today’s world.

 

UB 1766 I (Jesus) am meek and humble in the presence of my Father, but I am equally and relentlessly inexorable where there is deliberate evil-doing and sinful rebellion against the will of my Father who is in heaven.

 

Jesus did not turn his other cheek to rebellion, sin, or iniquity.

 

UB 1747 All the forces of evil and hosts of sin shall not prevail against this human fraternity of the divine spirit.

 

This fraternity is the rock on which the Kingdom of Heaven within is built.

 

UB 176 By nature, before the rebirth of the spirit, mortal man is subject to inherent evil tendencies, but such natural imperfections of behavior are neither sin nor iniquity.

 

UB 1660 Evil is inherent in the natural order of this world, but sin is an attitude of conscious rebellion which was brought to this world by those who fell from spiritual light into gross darkness.

 

Sin and iniquity don’t even exist on normal worlds, and yet we tolerate it as if it is part of the natural scenery.

 

In 1Enoch 105:13, "Those who were from heaven" probably refers to the Nephilim or Nodites.  Among these are the "sons of God who cavorted with the daughters of men" (Genesis: 6).

 

In 1Enoch 10:18, we are told that the offspring of these "watchers" who fell from heaven are destroyed in the "last days" judgment because they "have tyrannized over mankind." 1Enoch thus reveals to us the presence of an ancient and ongoing "evil race" (? Nodites) who have existed throughout the history of mankind. And so we can begin to understand the Psalm "Why do the heathen rage and the nations conspire against the Lord and his anointed" (Psalms 2). The concept of an evil, world order that attempts to impose itself over mankind should be studied in detail in our attempt to understand the forces that are shaping our world situation today. In order to be the bearers of truth, one must be able to bear ridicule, slander, and contempt. World government could be a wonderful development and a great benefit to mankind. However, ask yourself, if our developing world order is really so beneficial, why has it developed and flourished in secrecy, without public debate and knowledge.
