Many Christians have taken supernatural explanations out of the Bible. They claim to believe the supernatural realm exists but they deny it exists by teaching natural explanations for biblical accounts that do not say what some claim they teach. Two prime examples are the usual Sunday school explanation for when the Sons of God took daughters of men and produced offspring, and the watered down explanation for the nature of the Beast of Revelation.
The Bible clearly teaches that Elohim (angels) had unnatural offspring with women, (the Nephilim) even if many in our churches have an agenda to deny any supernatural explanation. If what is said in Genesis 6: 1-4 stood alone, the natural theory that the sons of Seth had offspring with the daughters of Cain might be considered, but this account does not stand alone.
There are other passages in the Bible that talk about giants on earth and there are other ancient writings that say that angels came down to earth and had offspring with women. They were the giants and the men of legends. Ancient Mesopotamian’s could not have made up stories to agree with a book that was not written yet. Ancient accounts of angel/human offspring predate Moses and Genesis.
What the angels did, brought about the corruption of genetics and that brought about the universal flood judgment. Those that do not understand this never give rational explanations for questions like why the worldwide flood happened, why there are demons on earth, why God told Israel to wipe out all living in Canaan, why judgment will come on earth again, and what is the nature of the Beast in Revelation?
Other than what I just said, I am not going to rehash what happened in Genesis. I already wrote about it here and here. Other reasonable accounts are available on the Internet by just typing in “Nephilim” in Google.
This article is really about the nature of the Beast of Revelation. I mention the Genesis account because it helps explain the fallen angel supernatural connection.
If you look at mystery religion today, you will find that there is nothing new under the sun. What pagans worshiped in ancient days is what pagans are worshiping today. They might put different names on their deities but they perform the same rituals and sacrifices to try to conjure up something supernatural.
Such mystery religion occultism is apparent in Catholicism, Mormonism, Masonry and witchcraft, but now it is becoming part of western culture through New Age paganism. Just look at the public luciferian ritual recently performed at sporting events, media ceremonies, and at CERN. The occult pagan rituals recently only practiced in secret societies and mystery religions are now going mainstream like they were back in the days of Babel.
There is a connection between luciferians, pedophilia and child sacrifice. There is more child sacrifice and rape of children than most anyone knows. Luciferians believe they receive supernatural powers from tormenting the souls of the innocent. Occult ritual by world leaders at the Bohemian Grove and elsewhere are done for a reason.
Satanic people are trying to open a door into the unseen realm. In God’s timing they will get what they want. The world is now being set up for the demonic invasion that comes out of the abyss. It is not going to be like most Christians think. The rise of the Beast will be a profound supernatural event. He will even have the supernatural power to kill God’s supernaturally protected witnesses (Rev 11:7).
When the Beast appears there will be a total paradigm shift in human thinking. The great deception that is coming will be nothing less than a revealing of beings coming out of another dimension (the abyss) that will claim to be the forefathers of humans. They will be convincing because these beings will appear as supernatural god/men to humans. That is why scripture says all of this world will be deceived.
The Beast will be a human/angelic hybrid. God calls him a Beast because he is no longer human. Those that desire to conform to his image by taking his mark cannot be saved because God created humans to be imagers of Himself. Imagers of Satan can have no place in God’s creation other than the Lake of Fire.
The supernatural Beast will probably identify as Nimrod, Apollo or Zeus. Some scholars that investigate ancient writings theorize that Nimrod was a Nephilim hybrid. All pagan worship started in the days of Nimrod. The names of the deities change to Zeus, Apollo, etc. but the nature of the beast remains the same. They are fallen angelic demigods. They possess supernatural powers and they rule over principalities (Eph 6:12).
Satan was acting out the god/man concept before the incarnation of Jesus. Satan knew that God had a plan to redeem the human race through a human Messiah. He just did not understand how it would be accomplished.
The flood set back Satan’s agenda to corrupt the genetics of the human race. The confusion of the languages at Babel also set a similar agenda back. The resurrection of Jesus and those born into the body of Christ halted Satan’s plan to set his own god/man on the throne. It cannot happen until he that hinders is removed.
Satan continually tries to carry out God’s plan through himself acting as God. That is why he offered Jesus the god/man position if Jesus would just worship him as God. Satan’s methods are not going to change. He will offer another the god/man position when he has the power to do that.
That is not the same as the God/man (Jesus). The god/man will be a convincing satanic counterfeit to all those that reject Jesus. Satan always counterfeits God. He thinks he is the most high God in God’s creation. The Devil knows the Creator who transcends His creation works through beings in His creation. He also knows the Creator is not going to destroy His own creation. Therefore, Satan supplants and counterfeits God in the Creator’s creation.
The being that we call Satan is the most powerful being in creation. If there were no God of creation, Satan would be the most high God. He is an angel of light. Luciferians believe this being is the most high God. They claim in their writings that the God of the Jews (JHWH) is a lessor created god.
Those that think the Beast empowered by Satan will be limited on earth by human actions are delusional. They deny the supernatural empowerment he will display. Humans will have no power over the Beast. Who can make war with the Beast (Rev 13:4)? The correct answer is no one. None on earth will be able to defeat the Beast. The return of the God/man is required to defeat Satan’s god/man.
The Son of Perdition will be a god/man incarnation just as Jesus is the God/man incarnation. I suspect the god/man will be accomplished much like what occurred in the days of Genesis. Angelic and human DNA will be combined to create a human appearing hybrid.
Scientists can create such a hybrid being today. The new CRISPR gene splicing technology makes it possible. Angelic DNA would of course be needed. The human genome is cut and then other DNA code is pasted in. RNA then transmits this gene information to other cells in the body. Shortly you get a whole new species. This is not hypothetical, scientists are creating human/animal hybrids today. About the only thing still preventing designer humans is ethics. With another decade of the further decline in ethics, and with further experimentation, super-humans and monstrosities become very likely.
I do not know if the Beast will become the Beast in this way. However, I do think that others will take on a genetic code when taking the mark or because of the mark. There is a reason why those taking the mark get a noisome and grievous sore (an unforeseen contraindication?). There also is a reason why nobody will be able to die during the five months of the flying stinging locusts. Not being able to die even if you want to is not natural (Rev 9:6). That probably means that something at least temporarily changed in the genetics of those taking the mark.
I have said before that I think the Antichrist will offer humans immortality in the flesh in his kingdom of god on earth (Babylon). He will not be able to deliver on that but the world will believe him.
When mankind takes on the nature of the Beast by taking his mark they can no longer be saved (Rev 14: 9-12). That tells me that they are no longer of the Adamic race and therefore cannot be saved by the God/man Kinsman Redeemer second Adam (Jesus).
So why do Christians need to know this? They really don’t. Some do insist that Christians will be on earth when the Beast is revealed so they say Christians need to know such things. I believe only those left on earth will need to know these things. In either case, it has nothing to do with salvation by grace or the Christian walk of faith. Maybe that is why there is not much explanation about these things in the Bible. Even so, I do not think Christians should have wooden heads either. Passages in the Bible are put there for a reason. Correct meanings that are not sealed can be known.
There is nothing new under the sun. What happened before will happen again. Jesus said that at the end of this age things on earth would be very much like they were in the days of Noah and Lot just before God’s judgment fell on the unrighteous unaware. You should see that the demonic pagan activities that happened in ancient times and that brought about God’s intervention are increasingly occurring again. As we see the big picture-taking shape, the nature of the Beast becomes known. Through the things that we do observe, we can know the time of fulfillment of those things written about grows ever shorter.
