THE NEPHILIM: IS JUDE’S QUOTATION OF 1 ENOCH PIVOTAL TO THE CHRISTIAN VIEW OF GIANTS IN GENESIS 6:4?

Prophecy students have obviously gone bonkers over the giants of Genesis 6:4. So many books have been written on the subject. Some prophecy teachers focus on this topic, almost to the exclusive of other issues. But were these enigmatic figures really giants?  Or were they something else? Were they hybrids of angels and humans? Or should we understand them to be humans of “stature,” but not so much in height as in their elite status?

The third in a series of three articles on the symbols identifying Mystery Babylon from Revelation 17.


“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” (Revelation 13:1)

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.Read More

THE GREAT CITY BABYLON DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS

THE GREAT CITY BABYLON. WHY IS IT DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS?

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3)

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. (Revelation 16:19)

THE RAPTURE, REVIVING THE BLESSED HOPE, THE GREAT RAPTURE DEBATE

THE RAPTURE:  MY ONE-HOUR INTERVIEW OF DR. DOUG STAUFFER FOR PROPHECY IN THE NEWS

I’m pleased to share the two 28-minute Prophecy in the News programs I did with writer and theologian, Dr. Douglas Stauffer that I was privileged to host a few months ago.  There are many challenges in the days we face right now.  I thought it would be good to think again on the Blessed Hope of the Church and consider the scriptures where this vital doctrine is taught.  Dr. Stauffer and I would later participate in a seven hour debate (in which I served as moderatorRead More
