Have you ever wondered why the nephilim were so big? The answer might seem obvious, but there could be more than meets the eye.
The topics of fallen angels and their nephilim offspring are strange ones indeed. Most researchers in this field know the basic story. Long ago, rebellious angels came down to Earth to procreate with human women. The result of this act was the creation of giant angel/human hybrids. We learn the details of this from Genesis 6:1-4, the book of Enoch, and various other ancient sources. However, one area that is often accepted yet not commonly explored is why the nephilim hybrids were so physically gigantic.
On the surface, the answer would seem obvious. They are part angel; of course they would be giants. But what is it exactly that leads us to this conclusion? If we are to assume the nephilim were giant in physical size because of their angelic progenitors, we would equally have to make the logical assumption that angels are giant in physical size as well. Consider these passages from the Bible concerning angels:
And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
Genesis 19:1, 5
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Genesis chapters 18 and 19 both tell us the angels appeared as men to those who witnessed them. There is found no description of gargantuan size. Hebrews 13:2 even tells us that angels physically appear so human, that some have entertained them without knowing they were angels. An interesting side-note to this, there is no distinction made between heavenly and fallen angels here; it only states “angels” in a general sense. It would seem both benevolent and malevolent angels appear human in appearance.
Biblically speaking, a larger physical size does not seem to be an attribute attributed to angels. Why, then, were the hybrid offspring of fallen angels physically gigantic? One answer that could be offered to this question would have something to do with Jude. In the book of Jude, we learn that the rebellious angels seemed to have lost something once they fell:
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.
An interpretation could be made that states the first estate or the habitation is referring to the angelic body. There is certainly good reason for this view, and in part I definitely agree with that assessment (for more information on this, refer to my blog post The Secrets of the Nephilim: Who Are They, What Are They Doing, and Why? as well as my bookDisclosure: Unveiling Our Role in the Secret War of the Ancients at MinistudyMinistry.com). However, this still brings up an important question. If the fallen angels truly traded in their extradimensional angelic body for a completely three-dimensionally physical one, would that not apply to genetics as well? In other words, if there was nothing angelic about the body anymore, why would that only stop at outward appearance? Would not the cellular makeup, genetics, and DNA be non-angelic as well?
I do not believe it would be accurate to say the angels who fell traded their angelic bodies for human bodies. I do believe the text states a type of downgrade occurred, especially when considering the meanings of the words used from the original language. However, I believe there was still one aspect of their angelic physiology they were able to retain: extradimensionality.
Super-physicality and Extra Dimensions
As I show in my books Quantum Creation and Cherubim Chariots, angels are true extradimensional beings. This applies to heavenly and fallen angels. Instead of thinking of angels as ethereal, wispy entities that are made from essentially nothing, as our culture dictates, it would be more accurate to think of angels as being super-physical. They possess more physicality than we do. The difference is they are able to exist in higher dimensions.
This does not mean angels can travel to higher, or extra, dimensions. It means they naturally take up space in those higher dimensions. Just as we do not exactly travel to the second dimension or the first because we are a part of those dimensions, angels are a part of higher spatial dimensions. This is obviously a very difficult thing to grasp, let alone envision. Thankfully, an author in the late 1800’s provided us with an excellent thought exercise to help us consider these ideas.
The book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by A. Abbott explores the idea of a fictional two-dimensional universe called Flatland. The inhabitants of Flatland are known as Flatlanders and are described as simple shapes, such as squares, circles, and triangles. The story explores the question of how a being of three spatial dimensions would describe himself to, or interact with, a Flatlander and be properly understood.
A Flatlander would have no concept of up or down. To a Flatlander, all that exists is forward, backward, left, and right. Because of this, height and depth are completely foreign concepts that Flatlanders would not be able to perceive or even envision in their minds. Even if a three-dimensional object were to breach their two-dimensional space, Flatlanders would only see it in their two-dimensional perspective. If I were to drop a ball through Flatland, the Flatlanders witnessing this event would not see the ball as we do. They would see a point in space appear in front of them just as the ball breaches their space. Next, as the ball passes through, Flatlanders would see a circle growing in size in front of them. The circle would reach its largest when the middle of the ball passes through. After that, as the ball is exiting, Flatlanders would see the circle shrink in size and eventually disappear completely. Technically, the Flatlanders did see the entire ball, only they saw it in numerous two-dimensional slices.
We can apply this to our three-dimensional experience as a thought exercise to help us imagine extra spatial dimensions (to be clear, we are only speaking of spatial dimensions here, not temporal; time as the fourth dimension is not a factor in this exercise). What if a ball consisting of four spatial dimensions rather than three, called a hypersphere, were to breach our three dimensions of space? For us, it would be the same thing, just with an added dimension. We would first see a point in space appear. As the hypersphere moves through our space, the point would become a ball and continue growing in size. Once the middle of the hypersphere is through our space, we would see the ball start to shrink in size until it disappears completely. As a quick side-note, isn’t it interesting that many reports of UFOs contain details such as these?
