Gaints In The Bible
4 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, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Giants(Nephilim in the Hebrew), were not the same as mighty men of old renown. Why? because the bible takes care to separate the two.
Neither does it talk in the verse of 'wayward' daughters, nor of Cain. It simply says daughters of men.

It was not until these events had passed that Genesis talks about the corruptness of man.
Neither it seems were the giants the cause of God ending the world they were there before and after.

Where Did Giants Come From
I don't always agree with Leon, but if he wants to blog 2 times or 30, doesn't matter. Can always do another blog.

Don't agree with the giant thing Leon reference Cain. It is though a view point like many others.

Who Were The Sons Of God
The verse goes a step further than just showing a difference between Nephilim and men of old renown.
It says Giants were here before and after. So one would assume God knew about them.
The problem is the men of renown. In my opinion these brought God's wrath.
I believe what happened corrupted the DNA.

Who Were The Sons Of God
Genesis 6:4
4 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, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

It says the daughters of men.
Not Cain, Sodom, giants but men as a race. It does not imply any deformity in these men or their daughters.

they bare children, the same.(meaning the children) became mighty men of old renown.

In fact it goes at length to seperate the giants and mighty men. Showing them to be different.

God wanted to end the world over this.

Its mega.

The whole flesh of the world is corrupted. He is going to destroy every species.

I think for those chosen it will be a wonderful experience, more than you can ever imagine.
You see I believe the tree of Life is about spiritual growth.
Its not about physical food but spiritual.
Luke20 34/36 tells us 'we will be like the angels.'
Spiritual is not just about prayer and praising verbally.
Praising is about harmony as well, being in tune with everything God gave us.
The tree of knowledge is dis- harmony. Look at the world around you. That cannot go to the next world.
That is just what I believe.
God sends the Holy Spirit to light our tree of life if we only listen. Then we have to nurture it.

Elena blessings, I hope you are well.

Remission Of Sin
To be honest Mark my last blog goes for anyone who dies for their faith.
People even today are dying all the time because they are Christian. In places like Egypt, Syria, they all have Christian minorities. That suffer under all the chaos that is going on.
Those are the ones that have been put to test.
They need our prayers.

Authority Over God
Hmmm! Never met anyone who admitted to being above God.
Yet many of us including some in the pulpits. Who tell us 'this is how it is', rather than 'this is what I believe the bible tells us'.
Some even form judgement on others and pass it, we see it on here.
I have seen people being told they are 'Not Christian'
'heading for damnation' etc Something we are told not to do in the Sermon Of The Mount.
That is saying we put our authority over God.For it is not God's judgement that is being passed. It is what we have decided.

Where Did Giants Come From
17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven, and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
I think you can say God is upset. Everything is corrupted.
Look at the horrific things man has done since Noah and the Lord has not intervened, this was mega.
The thing is there are so many different views on where giants came from? Did angels fall? Who was and who wasn't corrupted. The arguments go in circles.
It is though a note, only Enoch and Noah walked in the path of God, according to Genesis.

Remission Of Sin
Are you talking Rapture or Tribulation?
If Tribulation they are those who are slaughtered for their faith. Their faith is by their death and thus their salvation.

Where Did Giants Come From
In first blogs I quoted the verse from KJV. The second time the Torah. They are the same other than the word Nephilim and giant. The only difference is giant is a species and Nephilim is a race of a species.

Luke 20
35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels, and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
a) Are angels then children of God?
b) Can angels take on human form,with all the vices that brings?
I will leave you all to argue that.

Proof Of Earth's Age
I have worked out the passing and rule of each leader from Adam to Noah going by the data Usher calculated. Which says Adam was born 4004.
Adam born 4004
passed 3074
Enoch 3017 Ascended NR
Seth 2962
Enos 2864
Cain 2769
Mahal 2714
Jared 2582
lamarch 2353 NR never ruled
Meth' 2348 Flood
Noah 1998
Enoch and Noah are the only ones mentioned as having walked with God. Which I see as following the way of God.
I calculated this from Genesis and I am sure someone will be quick to point out if I have made an error on my maths.
Its the date of death and the period inbetween is the rule.
hope it is of interest.

Where Did Giants Come From
You are saying I do not understand the verse?
When you have already mis-qouted. By saying daughters of Sodom. Where in Genesis 6.4. does it say that.

I believe the giants(Nephilim) were already here, if you read the verse correctly.
The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, (before and after) when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same (meaning the children) were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.
That is from the Torah.
In brackets is me.
The verse makes effort to seperate Giants (Nephilim).. from mighty men of old renown. Showing them as different.

Where Did Giants Come From
Maybe we should refer to the giants as Nephilem, then talk of what people think the men of old renown were.
All I am saying in my belief, the men of renown are not Nephilem, on the way the text is worded. Otherwise it would of said so surely.
Nephilem seems to be the original phrasing.For the 'giants' in Gen 6.4.
There were it is believed other giants at this time though.

Where Is Heaven Located
Well those horrible scientists are at it again. Physicists are now working on the theory of 11 dimensions and alternate worlds.
This week they took a small step forward, with subatomics using two atoms.
No this is not your U tube quaks but some of the top scientists across the world.
There is also the question of black holes like the one on the centre of the Milky way.
I have no idea where heaven might be, I just hope I am allowed in.

Proof Of Earth's Age
I believe in God, to me whether God created the world and rested in 7 days or 7 million years it was by God. If there is ever a big bang it was the work of God.
God is all encompassing.
Carbon dating is fairly accurate up to a certain point in time, a few thousand years, then its accuracy tends to be questioned.
Whether the creation is symbolic told in a way man of the time could understand or a long time event. It is still God.
Even if evolution were proved then it is still God because man was formed from the earth.
What we are told in Genesis is here,embrace it, enjoy it.

Can You Increase Your Faith
We lost our business, we lost our home,in fact we lost everything even our health. I was very ill for a while
and my wife got cancer.
I was sat one day and I realised that somewhere along the line I had forgotten God. I had been involved in all the material things of every day life.
I prayed and as I prayed all the sins of my life were shown me. Thoughts words and deeds.
Things you say that hurt, using people even if
not deliberately etc.
Was this me? I thought I was good. I felt anguish and sorrow.
I did not lose everything because of God. Yet by doing so God was able to come to me.
Faith is not only you,it is also the faith God has in you, if you listen.

Where Did Giants Come From
Chapter 6. 4 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, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

It does not say giants were born to the daughters of men in Genesis.
Many people make the assumption they are.
The one sure thing, God is not at all happy about it.
'daughters of men' says human race, rather than tribe. It also implies that these daughters were human,not part giant or anything else. Nor does it say they were corrupt. It is only after the mating Genesis talks of the corruption and wickedness of man.
check Genesis ch6 5. 6. 7.12

Where Did Giants Come From
Genesis 6.4
Tells us clearly there were giants before and after this time.
It makes a clear distinction between giants and mighty men of old, men of renown.
There is no confusion on this.

Can Only Clergy Minister
Do we not minister on here?
We come and put our belief. Often there are apposing views and doctrines.
So I would say 3.
The problem is the word 'Christian'
what is a Christian?
I have seen people on here decry another's faith, because their views do not match.
i have seen people pass judgement at the risk of being judged.
Even seen ego allowed to over take belief.
I have also seen very strong faith and some well reasoned discussion and compassion.
I see all here as trying to be good Christians.
