  1. daniel anderson says:

    He had me until his interpretations of the nephilim and original sin

  2. randall burmaster says:

    Job 1:6 now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.
    So that shows right there that humans could not be with Satan and present themselves before God. They have to be angelic beings.

  3. Deborah de Richter says:

    gen 3 verse 15..
    satan has offspring on earth..
    the seed of the viper..

  4. John A says:

    Very astute synopsis! Well done chap.

  5. Saved by grace says:

    The sons of GOD were not angels.
    Angels were spiritual beings.
    MARK 12:25,
    For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
    Seems obvious yes ?

  6. KeeperOfThe10 says:

    The whole point of Genesis 6 is completely missed because we focus on the myth of angels marrying humans. Study with the holy spirits guidance.

  7. Moto Pros says:

    It seems there are passages missing n that Gen-6 context. Almost like hiding something. Like the legends & myths allude to heros of their age. The Demi God's were Nephilim. Paul's warnings about genealogies was about Angeology?

  8. Crypt Network says:

    Double speak on the angels that Peter and Jude speak about are fallen angels from heaven. These do not have the ability to procreate just because they fell, they didn't magically become able to mate with women. In Jude verse 7, he speaks about Sodom and Gomorrah, which has nothing to do with angels mating with anyone, but the humans performing homosexual activities. Wait a minute, holy crap! Now. at 15:30 of the video he is saying that Satan is not the bad guy, but that the bible clearly states that it is man's sin that is to blame. Blasphemy!!!! Ephesians 6:10-13 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Unbelievable!!!

  9. Crypt Network says:

    Luke 3:38 states, "…Adam, the son of God." contrary to this Gentleman's statement that all 5 of the times the bible uses, "son of God" it is referring to angels. He must have missed that verse, but it speaks to the fact that it does not always refer to angels only. Also, Mark 12:25 speaking about rising from the dead, says, "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven." Jesus stating that angels can not procreate, nor will the risen from the dead anymore procreate. That settles it, the only option that is biblical is, the son's of God are those from the line of Seth. Praise God! Also, we should never settle for less than the truth just because it will hurt someone's feelings, Jesus is the Truth the Life and the Way, not the lie the death and everlasting destruction.

  10. Jeff Chapman says:

    Well the problem with it is is scholars and Bible teaches want to run from the fact that in all ancient civilizations. They haven't found one civilization that called on the name of the Lord like in Israel. The gentiles were all pagans, all of them. There were some gentiles found in the new testament at the times of Jesus and of the apostles that pre date the existence of Christianity who did believe in the Lord. The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. So the question is is salvation in the old testament? So would it really matter if the Nephilim are demonized or not? And at a biological level would they just be humans but their daddy's were angels that appeared as men and then copulated with their mamas? So biologically they probably weren't demons, they were men. But it served as a sign that these huge gigantic people had angelic daddy's. Because Jesus is able to save humanity and he was incarnate as human because of his mama. The seed of the father isn't necessary to be deemed human or not. If you're born into this world through the birth canal of your mama you're biologically human. But that's an interesting perspective you got there. It makes you rethink that part of the bible.

  11. Sammy Spaniel says:

    Romans 8:14? "“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

  12. 1980 Gamerz says:

    What Jesus was talking about that people chosen from this world to govern with him in heaven are the so called 144000 chosen to judge the world. Those are the ones that will not be able to marry. Think about this for a second of we can not be judged by angels in heaven. The correct way is to chose people that have lived thru many situations in this world and that have gone to all types of difficulty every death of some one close. And of course faithful to God rules and be chosen to govern with Jesus for 1000 years as described in revelations. Jesus it self came to earth for that same reason and to pay with his blood for our sins. So he is the king in Heaven for 1000 years with his 144000 chose to judge humanity earth.

  13. Night Fang says:

    So who are the nephilim?????

  14. Night Fang says:

    So god is a fucking alien?

  15. Edwin Griffin says:

    Angels took daughters of men to have offspring to try to gain the authority on earth God gave humans.

  16. Samo Sakiss says:

    I think it's talking about the flood during the days of Noah, the Nephelims were there before and still after the flood,

  17. David Leone' says:

    This guy is a fake expert and theologian

  18. Satanic Boxer says:

    Might as well ask where Santa clause goes for a piddle when he’s caught short delivering all those presents to all those good little boys and girls.Hmmmmm(rubs chin thoughtfully)

  19. Micscience says:

    This is one of the problems I have with the Bible. If anyone is truly honest with themselves, believer or not, you have to admit there is a translation issue with the Bible. Unless maybe it's being decoded with math. These words face value seem to cause much conflict in the Bible. There is always translation issues. How can a truth seeking person look to the Bible for answers of something so edited? It just seems like men of the past writing words down but it doesn't come off divine to me.

  20. Mind Virus says:

    Satan is not my enemy. I dont blame satan for anything. Satan just uses the stupid and gullible bc Satan works for God.

  21. Mind Virus says:

    Sex was a very bad invention Too many damn weirdos and perverts that need to be put to death.

  22. Mind Virus says:

    Isnt YHWH really Satan?

  23. Mind Virus says:

    None of this makes any sense any more…

  24. Mind Virus says:

    Is Lucifer a good spirit?

  25. Laurel Ure Salyer says:

    This has been the most in depth analysis on the nephylim that I've ever heard. It is so clearly laid out that it actually makes sense!

  26. Ronnie LaMar says:

    Good job !

  27. Merlin says:

    No such thing. Twisted scripture is all this is. Men of renown are Kings and important people. Giants are also categorized as the same.

  28. ShadowMoses FpV says:

    My thing is ….why can't the Bible not agree with "mythology" ? ….what if it was all real ? What if the demigods were the nephilim ?

  29. Debbie Cooper says:

    They in the bible is always Esau and Ishmael

  30. Debbie Cooper says:

    Serpent Rider bottomless pit king hidden behind Noah's cloak Obama will fall . Along with Esau Great Britain and Ishmael Africa Africa Ishmael Ham Babylon Africa no mercy slave masters hands

  31. Rene Jerezano says:

    He lost me with the Nephilim being there already. The Nephilim are the offspring of that aberration sexual breeding. That is what Peter, Jude, and even Paul refer to and it is settled in the narrative of the flood. Also, missed the story from Numbers, where Moses sends a scouting group into the land, and they come back reporting that Nephilim were in the land, and that they were as grasshoppers in their sight, that the Nephilim were monsters who devoured the land, etc….Remember Goliath and his 4 brothers, all giants, even having 6 fingers and toes on each hand and foot? They were the Anakim, the sons of Anak. What about Og of Bashan.
    There were entire tribes of these abhorring hybrids: the Sansumin, etc….
    Why do you think God ordered every man, woman, and child to be exterminated?
    He just took the easiest path of resistance because of the controversy of this text.

    Satan was trying to corrupt the lineage of mankind through which Jesuschrist would be born.
    The only person whose generation was perfect and without blemish was Noah.
    Everything and everyone else were wiped out.

    The only spot where he gets me, that is hard to settle, is the men of renown verse….

  32. MA says:

    If they are angels where they fallen ones?

  33. Angelo Pineda says:

    Excellent video… on point.

  34. Eric Claeyborn says:

    Fallen human beings.

  35. Edens Water Is Life says:

    The sons of women belong to the natural. Proverbs 3:18 Grab hold of wisdom for she is the tree of life. He is to go from her to his wife. Revelations 22:17 The spirit and bride say come. Her spirit will decide if he is her husband because her spirit discerns him from man . The daughters of men tempt her sons away from the natural spirit, as he uses his forked tongues to cause woman to deny her spirit for the spirit of his god. When her and her husband receive the spirit of the father of men, they are no longer natural but unnatural to invite in a foreign spirit. I was a believer then became a seeker. I found truth within my own heart mind and soul. Removed and changed what needed to be absent from me. Their I found the spirit within who gave me life. Neither male nor female but living , giving life to male and female everywhere in nature for the purpose of creating life. The church changed to sex and birth. The Vatican Law of Caine is the sons leading the blind to his father. Seeing and hearing what you want is not a solution. One must face they reality if themselves first change seek and find. Truth is cutting but also freeing. The cut heals quickley.

    Bullcrap there NEEDS to be division from Christians against the hypocrites.
