It is believed that Nephilim once roamed the Earth but they were destroyed. The depiction of their destruction is revealed in an ancient book.
One of the most important archaeological discoveries was made at the Qumran Caves over half a century ago. Among the artifacts discovered were thousands of antique scrolls that offered extremely important insight into our past.
But in addition to the numerous scrolls, archaeologists were surprised when they stumbled across one rare and unusual texts: an ancient scroll that describes the demise of the ancient Nephilim.
Called the Book of Giants, it speaks about the creatures that inhabited our planet in the distant past, and how they were destroyed.
But what are the Nephilim? According to mainstream historians, these beings are mythical creatures and didn’t actually exist on our planet. However, the truth behind the Nephilim might be more mysterious than any of us imagined.
Starting from the beginning, we must understand that even today in the 21st century, the word ‘Nephilim‘ ist fully understood.
The enigmatic Nephilim have long been considered the giant beings that inhabited our planet in the distant past.
There are several ancient texts that make reference to the Nephilim. One of those texts is the Book of Genesis, which undoubtedly describes the Nephilim. Most of the information gathered ed today come from the apocryphal Book of Enoch. This ancient work is historically attributed to Noah’s great-grandfather.
Curiously, during this time, our planet is said to have been inhabited by ‘Angels’ who interacted for yers with mortal people, eventually interbreeding with the “daughters of man” which lead to the creation of a race of beings describes as being unnatural strong, referred to as giant hybrids, the Nephilim.
But the stories about the Nephilim differ in the Book of Genesis and the ancient scrolls found in the Qumran Caves. The Book of Giants –which by the way is incomplete—offers a different perspective about the Nephilim. According to the ancient text, the Giants —The Nephilim—became aware that due to their violent ways, they face an imminent destruction. They asked Enoch to speak on their behalf to God.
The ancient texts detail how the Nephilim lived on Earth and created chaos and destruction. At one point in history, they began having prophetic dreams of Armageddon, as fear swept through their hearts. According to the texts, the first of the Nephilim to have such prophetic dreams was Mahway, the Titan son of the angel Barakel. According to his dream, a huge tablet was submerged under water, as the tablet surfaces only three names are left. This is believed to symbolize the Great Flood and eventual distribution of all but Noah’s sons.
Once the Giants became aware of the prophetic nature of their dreams they sought out help from Enoch.
However, Enoch wasn’t on Earth anymore, so the Nephilim sent out one of them on a cosmic journey. After the cosmic journey Mahway comes to Enoch and makes his request.
Notice the peculiar description:
[ . . . he mounted up in the air] 41ike strong winds, and flew with his hands like ea[gles . . . he left behind] 5the inhabited world and passed over Desolation, the great desert [ . . . ] 6and Enoch saw him and hailed him, and Mahway said to him [ . . . ] 7hither and thither a second time to Mahway [ . . . The Giants away 8your words, and all the monsters of the earth. If [ . . . ] has been carried [ . . . ] 9from the days of [ . . . ] their [ . . . ] and they will be added [ . . . ] 10[ . . . ] we would know from you their meaning [ . . . ] 11[ . . . two hundred tr]ees that from heaven [came down . . . ]
If we analyze the above text carefully, a peculiar interpretation can be derived from it: „…He mounted up in the air… with his hands like eagles… he left behind the inhabited world and passed over Desolation…“
Interestingly, many people would agree that described in this ancient text is a journey that leads towards space, leaving the planet behind… describing the rest of the planet as the traveler was leaving Earth’s atmosphere.
It can all be resumed to our personal interpretation, which eventually depends on of our beliefs.
Returning to the Book of Giants, we find that Enoch sends Mahway back to Earth, promising only that he shall speak to God on behalf of the Nephilim. However, the tablets Enoch Sent as a response did not bring good news for the Giants:
