Some people believe they have come from somewhere else. They certainly show a number of differences, or slight abnormalities, compared with the “average” human being. But that could of course be accounted for by the laws of chance. As human beings we do display a very wide range of differences, not only in skin colour, but also in stature, physiognomy and so on. However, leaving aside any physical characteristics, these people also find strange non-physical differences from the normal. They tend to have psychic qualities, the ability to see auras, things that most of us are quite unaware of, and sensitivities to electrical phenomena, visions of other beings, other places, and a sense that they have come from some other planet, or system. And these qualities come, not as a result of watching too much television, or ET films, or the like, but from early childhood, before they have had a chance to absorb any knowledge of the prevailing cultures of this world.
What are we to say to this? Shall we just reject it all as absurd? Shall we try desperately to find some natural explanation for it, so that we don’t have to cope with things that give us goose bumps? In investigating this subject, I feel utterly unqualified to make any definite comment. I stuck my neck out in regard to UFOs and Crop Circles, because I felt that I had something important to offer. But when it comes to this subject, I feel far less able to make a comment. However, I’ll start by looking at a few important Scriptures, and then at a few contributions from others, who have had more opportunity than me to make some useful comments. Please don’t reject this out of hand before considering the whole article. As believers, we are bound to confront things that are of this nature, in case there is anything that leads us into a deeper understanding of spiritual dynamics,and which helps us to see what is going on in the invisible world, the world of Angels, and Demons, and the possibility that God requires us to be on guard, and to know how to confront subtle attacks of the enemy, or perhaps to discern more clearly the signs of the times, and the nearness of the Lord’s return.
First of all, let’s go back to the scene before the Flood of Noah’s day. In Genesis 6 we are told about Sons of God cohabiting with earth-women, to produce a race of giants. Now I know that some expositors try their best to make this into an ordinary human situation, saying that the “sons of God are men from the godly line of Seth, and the women are from the ungodly line of Cain. Their offspring are giants of wickedness, and not of stature.” This is an interesting comment if for no other reason than it seems as though we have the evidence of those who cannot contemplate any interplay between higher dimensional beings and those of earth. For some reason they are scared.
But the Bible is its own interpreter in this respect, because Genesis 6 tells us that this event occurred, not only before the Flood, but again afterwards, and the subsequent histories of the Children of Israel have many references to literal giants, far more than just Goliath of David’s day. Isaiah tells us that these hybrid offspring have no place in the realm of resurrection. Here are the references.
Gen.6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants [Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Isaiah 26:14 They are Rephaim, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
Verse 19. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the Rephaim. (The A.V. uses the word “dead” for Rephaim, causing confusion.)
The Rephaim were giants, and sons of the giants, the sons of Rapha. They are hybrid, and not true Adamic stock. Only natural human beings, descended from Adam, can take part in resurrection. This is a fact that few seem to have realised. Perhaps because the A.V. text doesn’t give a true translation of the Hebrew, using the word “dead” instead of Rephaim. We must now turn to the N.T. and see some amplification of this reference to fallen angels.
2 Peter 2:4 For God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to Tartaros, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly.
Jude 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
The angels who sinned, we are told, “kept not their first estate.” The Greek original is interesting here. It is “having deserted their own OIKETERION.” Now according to the Lexicon, this word only occurs elsewhere in 2 Cor. 5:2, where we read, “For in this [body] we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our HOUSE from heaven.” The word house is OIKETERION. Hence, if our new resurrection bodies are described using that word, then the reverse must have taken place with the angels who fell. They must have “put off” their “house in heaven”, and taken on human form. But having done so, they apparently retained much of their “higher” knowledge and power, with which they corrupted the earth.
From our present point of view it has been most informative to learn that angels are capable of stripping off their higher dimension, and descending to the earth (descending dimensionally, not literally) and walking and interacting amongst human beings. It happened before the Flood, and the record tells us that it also happened again afterwards, giving rise to the “mighty men of old, men of renown.” One wonders just how much of ancient Greek and Roman mythology was based upon the remembrance of such beings, who in their writings became “gods.”
We now have to ask ourselves whether such irruptions from the higher world are again taking place. We are reminded yet again that our Lord spoke of the days of Noah being similar to the days just before His return. He only mentioned a few parallels connected with a lack of watchfulness, which was His focus at that time. But suppose there were other parallels? Could it be that we are now witnessing a world where there is a mixture of humans and hybrids? Does the Bible give us any warranty for promoting such thought? I think it does. See this passage in Revelation 12.
Rev.12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth.
Who are these stars? Angels are often spoken of as Stars. These stars are not “fallen” angels, but some of those who were attacked by the Devil (the Dragon) and “cast to the earth.” They didn’t rebel. They were the casualties of higher dimensional warfare. But now we must read on.
Rev.12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Here is the turning point in the heavenly warfare. Michael and his angels cast out Satan and his angels to the earth. So we seem to have this scenario – first of all “one third” of the Lord’s angels are lost to heaven, and have had to live on earth, presumably as ordinary human beings (but perhaps with a difference?). Then sometime later, the counter-offensive removes the whole of Satan’s company to earth. They will also appear as human beings. A new type of warfare ensues, and who knows whether the dire circumstances now prevailing in this world may not be as a result of this large number of beings with us and amongst us? As it was in Noah’s day, when the “earth was full of violence”, so also now we are certainly finding that to be so.
Rev.12:12 Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.
