"And there shall be signs in the sun,
and in the moon, and in the stars;
and upon the earth distress of nations,
with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
and for looking after those things
which are coming on the earth: for
the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
There is much in the Bible concerning the "time of the end." Yes, it's talking about the end of the "world". Such a statement can scare a person half to death!
No more earth. A planet burned to a crisp. All living things now dead and gone. The silent darkness of space flows in to fill the void. GONE!
Well, you can get that scenario out of your mind right now. 'Cause that ain't happenin'. If what the Bible predicts is true, there will be some incredible events occur to planet earth in the not-so-distant future. No doubt, some witnesses may have a heart attack because of such things. Terrible things will happen. Thousands and thousands will die. But planet earth will remain. Civilization on it will remain, and flourish like never before.
Here is a key thing to remember: The world is not the planet. Earth is the planet. The "world" is the society mankind has built upon the planet.
Remember these things also:
1) The plan of God culminates in Him making His future home RIGHT HERE ..... on earth! It will become the absolute most enduring location in all of physical creation.
2) Remember also, that it is "the world" that the Son of God came to save. The problem is, the world does not know HOW to govern itself.
Have you ever had a "know it all" friend? Ever have something you feel is very important to tell them, but every time you try, they interrupt you to interject, "I know it"?
Here's the record:
1) God created mankind.
2) God began to instruct mankind.
3) Mankind interrupted, "Ok, we'll take it from here".
4) "Alright, go ahead ........ LEARN", was God's answer.
5) Here we are now in the world we built!
6) Millennia later God comes back into the picture: "See, I told you, but you wouldn't listen. Now, stand back and watch this. I'm going to fix this world the way I intended .... and this time you WILL listen!"
He has had to intervene several times in the past just to preserve the world so it would survive to the end of His plan. Like a blackboard in school with a mistake written on it, He has had to erase a great portion of the world before letting mankind continue on. One was the second flood. The one that occurred in the days of Noah.
The Sons of God had polluted the gene pool of mankind to the degree that there came a time when only Noah and his family remained pure in their genes, their heredity. The children that resulted from physically manifested Elohim (sons of God) and human women were called the Nephilim. The giants of ancient times. The population of these beings reached a crescendo during the days of Noah. However, they were prophesied to appear ON EARTH again.
"These are the generations of Noah:
Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations [genealogy]".
"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, "
This event is connected to the end times.
(Luke 17: 24-27:)
"For as the lightning, that lighteneth
out of the one part under heaven,
shineth unto the other part under heaven;
so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
and be rejected of this generation.
And as it was in the days of Noe,
so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
they were given in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the ark, and the flood
came, and destroyed them all."
The current world of man's rule over man is what is coming to an end. And, as that end nears, we will be living in a time that has a similarity to the days Noah lived in. It will be a time when the human blood line is being altered by certain sons of God resulting in the re-emergence of the Nephilim.
Concerning the time of the end, the prophet Daniel has this to say:
"And as the toes of the feet were
part of iron, and part of clay,
so the kingdom shall be partly strong,
and partly broken.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed
with miry clay, they shall
mingle themselves with the seed of men:
but they shall not cleave one to another,
even as iron is not mixed with clay.
(Daniel 2: 42-43)
The prophet Daniel was born about 620 B.C.; and yet God inspired him to record events that concerned the end times. The meaning of the things written in the Book of Daniel was to be kept from the understanding of man UNTIL the time of the end. At that time, during a hectic age, that understanding was to be opened for the first time, greatly increasing man's knowledge of things.
"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book, even to the time of the end:
many shall run to and fro, and
knowledge shall be increased."
(Daniel 12: 4)
They all stood before the king and said, "Tell us what it was that you had dreamed, and we will tell you what it means".
This really ticked him off. He replied to them, "The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill."
After saying there is not a man on earth that could tell him what he had dreamed, and then go on to tell him the meaning of it, they continued saying: "it is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is none other that can show it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon."
Since Daniel was considered one of the "wise" men of Babylon, he too was sought out for destruction. As the captain of the king's guard approached Daniel, Daniel asked him why Nebuchadnezzar had decreed such a thing.
When Daniel heard about the dream, he and his friends prayed about the situation so they too would not be destroyed with all the wise men of Babylon. That night, God revealed the dream and it's meaning to Daniel as he slept.
The next day, Daniel told Arioch, the captain of the kings guard, that he shouldn't slay all the wise men of Babylon until he (Daniel) had a chance to talk to the king since he now knew what the dream was as well as it's meaning.
Arioch took Daniel before the king. Here, in a nutshell, is what Daniel told him. And; it's of utmost importance to our understanding also.
The king had a dream about a giant statue that represented the six governmental phases life on earth would go through before the final seventh phase, when God the Father brings New Jerusalem here to set up his new headquarters. The sixth phase is the return of Christ to establish His millennial reign with resurrected saints in order to prepare the earth for just that event. But, the preceding five phases, prior to Christ's return, represent the experiments of mankind with self-rule.
As you look at the statue, it progresses through the ages from the head (the most distant in the past) to the feet (the end-time age).
This end-time, final government of man over man, will be a hybrid union. Like iron mixed with clay, it will be partly strong and partly weak. Mankind is represented as clay elsewhere in the bible. So if mankind is the clay, who are the strong ones? They would be the mighty ones, the strong and powerful ones, that is certain sons of God in a future rebellion to him. This union will once again produce Nephilim upon the earth. They will father a mixture of "iron" and "clay". They will be running the end-time government. They represent the ten toes of the statue as a final ten state coalition.
In the days of this last government Christ returns like a Rock hitting the statue on the feet and toes, causing the whole system of man to crash to the ground. Nebuchadnezzar's Bablyonian Empire was represented by the head of gold.
This is not to say that there will be some single, world witnessed, event where sons of God will arrive here from the heavens to begin mating with earth women. Oh no, it is more subtle than that. They have already been here. They have already "fathered" those who will rise to the prophesied political positions by the time of the end. THEY PROBABLY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO, OR WHAT, THEY ARE THEMSELVES!
They were on the scene thousands of years already. Even during the time of Christ.
John 8:38 -44
" I speak that which I have seen
with my Father: and ye do that which
ye have seen with your father.
Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were
Abraham's children, ye would
do the works of Abraham.
But now ye seek to kill me,
a man that hath told you the truth,
which I have heard of God:
this did not Abraham.
Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to him,
We be not born of fornication;
we have one Father, even God.
Jesus said unto them, If God
were your Father, ye would
love me: for I proceeded forth
and came from God; neither
came I of myself, but he sent me.
Why do ye not understand my speech?
even because ye cannot hear my word.
Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh
of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
The books of Daniel and Revelation go hand in hand. Signs and wonders?
Maybe we better look at some of the things we may have scoffed at in the past concerning "alien abductions".
The average, level-headed person thinks such reports comes only from nit wits. Goofy people who will believe anything.
Well ...... that's not really a balanced approach considering who is among UFO witnesses. And that would include: President Jimmy Carter, NASA astronauts, police officers, military pilots, and yes, more ordinary folk like hunters, hikers, campers and back yard barbequers.
But, maybe the genes have come down to us today naturally. Are Nephilim necessarily evil? The Bible calls them "men of renown". That is "men", not monsters, or boogy men as some books and videos would have it. What's wrong with being half God and half man? Remember, the reason they were destroyed in the past is the same reason mankind was destroyed in the past (and will be in the future), it was a matter of gross unrighteousness and rebellion to God .....a very human trait.
One of the genetic codes that may indicate the presence of Nephilim DNA could be the presence of six toes and/or six fingers. Look, my grandfather had six toes; and I'm the one writing this article about the Nephilim.
Disobedience is disobedience no matter if it is found among the Cherubim, Seraphim, mankind, Sons of God, Principlaities, Dominions, Powers or any other life form created by God.
The six toe characteristic is mentioned by the prophet Samuel. Maybe someone you know has six toes. Maybe you do. So what!
What we need to do, is not to measure others against some genetic yardstick, but to measure ourselves against the yardstick of the fruit we are producing. And that yardstick is written down in Galatians 5: 22-23.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."
II Samuel 2:19-20
"And there was again a battle in Gob with the
Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim,
a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite,
the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam.
And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a
man of great stature, that had on every hand
six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and
twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant."
I have written that some of the sons of God have been sentenced to live out a physical life, have died, and like the sons of Adam, are now in need of Christ's salvation through a resurrection. Understand, I was not referring to all the sons of God. Just those on earth that were judged before God, as seen in Psalm 82. There may have been some to whom that sentence did not pertain. It was just those in attendance.
And remember, they were not judged for selecting human women for wives at all. The ones who received the sentence received it for the way they governed mankind.
To make it as brief as I can, according to what I have learned over the years, God is going to intervene to save us from ourselves, and get on with His plan. Our mis-rule will threaten our very own extinction through global war. We will have proven, that given long enough, our way of life leads to the lack of compassion, increased selfishness, pride, envy, and finally DEATH for all.
To intervene, and stop such a hellish act, God will invade the Earth at the very last moment. It will be that close. No one will ever be able to say, "If He hadn't butted-in, we would have straightened things out in a few more weeks." Imagine that. God is an extraterrestrial, and He's going to invade earth!
In fact, many millions will witness the heavenly signs, and the coming of an uncountable number of what they perceive as ALIENS. But, in fact, it will be Christ and His armies from some other region of the Heavens.
We will be conquered. The government of God will be set up at this world's center .. Jerusalem. At Christ's return, certain people will be resurrected to help Him for the next thousand years. They are those ,who because of spiritually maturing in this life, will represent the First resurrection. This will include some from before and during Old Covenant times, New Covenant times, and the Mystery relationship.
After a physical resurrection, each will pass through a transformation process to have their physical bodies changed into Spirit bodies. Those of the Mystery relationship will ascend to God the Father and will assist with the affairs of God throughout the Heavens and Earth. All the others in the First resurrection will remain on earth. They will REPLACE the past rebellious Sons of God in their duties, while those past gods continue to sleep in their graves awaiting the second resurrection a thousand years later.
Revelation 20: 4-6 (with comments in italics)
and judgment was given unto them:
and I saw the souls of them that were
beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for
the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image,
neither had received his mark upon their
foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived
and reigned with Christ a thousand years. "
Those included here have a previous record of loyalty to Christ.
"But the rest of the dead lived not again
until the thousand years were finished."
(Notice, not everyone will be included in the First Resurrection at Christ's return).
"This is the first resurrection."
This statement is referring back to the things describe at first, above.
"Blessed and holy is he that hath part
in the first resurrection: on such the
second death hath no power,
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand years."
Under the direct supervision of Jesus Christ, they will spread the Kingdom of God around the planet until an unimaginable, veritable Paradise is established. In that world there will be real, genuine LOVE. Love that is not wishy-washy. But real out-going concern for everyone else. Never, never again will there be war. This will be a physical happening, overseen by Jesus Christ and Sons and Daughters of God (maybe you!) proven in their loyalty and love for others.
Revelation 5: 9-10
"And they sung a new song, saying,
Thou art worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof:
for thou wast slain, and hast
redeemed us to God by thy blood out
of every kindred, and tongue, and
people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God
kings and priests: and we
shall reign on the earth."
There will be joy, abundance, and purpose of life like never before. After a thousand year beautification process, another incredible event will occur: The Second Resurrection.
The second resurrection is the initiating event that begins another long period of time called the Great White Throne Judgment.
It will also be a resurrection back to a physical existence. It will include every last human being that was ever born. EVERYONE. These are the people that need to be taught BIG TIME! Included in this group will be those who have practiced Voo Doo, those who were atheists, those who died as children, and those who thought they were Christians. There will be Muslims, Jews, Hindu's ..... and on and on, even including the deceased previous sons of God. In short, it will include all the dead on earth that were not in the First Resurrection.
They will be allotted a lifetime (Great White Throne Judgment period) to live in the physical, before being transformed into a Spirit being. They will build houses, have cook outs, mow their grass, go fishing ....... everything a physical person can do now. And, their minds will be changed. God WILL lead them all to repentance! Just like He has everyone else who call themselves Christian.
I know there are some who don't like this. They don't want everyone else having a chance. Especially those they personally have conflict with, or those "they" have judged as being undeserving of salvation. These are usually the ones who think they are "doing" things that earn their relationship with God. I didn't say their salvation, I said their "special current relationship". Somehow they think they've decided on their own to come to God. WRONG!
"Therefore thou art inexcusable,
O man, whosoever thou art that judgest:
for wherein thou judgest another,
thou condemnest thyself; for thou that
judgest doest the same things.
But we are sure that the judgment of God
is according to truth against them
which commit such things.
And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest
them which do such things, and doest the same,
that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness
and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing
that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"
Man, as he currently is, is not capable of being the example of love. Contrast that with the fact that God IS love.
I John 4:8
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
Imagine the extreme contrasts: Hitler hugging Ann Frank. Robert E. Lee and General Sherman fishing together in North Carolina. Moshe Dayan and Saddam Hussein walking together in the Garden of Gethsemane.
IMPOSSIBLE! Some would say. Yes, left to our own devices ..... utterly impossible. It would never, never, never happen. But friend, it is not left to us. Yet, that is the very thing God's intervention intends to do. That's it's purpose.
Because there is a God, IT WILL HAPPEN. Not because of us, but to us, and in spite of us!
