The Nephilim After the Global Flood
The Flood Waters Subside
After the global flood, once of the canape surrounding the Earth had dropped (Genesis 7:11) and the waters had settled into the seas and rivers, extra-earthly beings (like the "seed planters" who planted the Nephilim before the flood) had their abilities to interact with humankind drastically reduced. This was done to protect the human race and to insure that our free will (and genome) would remain human.
Noah's Evil Son Kenan and the Nephilim Seed
Based on a well known Muslim tradition (doubtless carried over from the time when Hubal-Sin, god of the Kaaba, was directly worshiped by the Northern Arabs) Noah had a fourth son named Kenan. While this is not recorded in the Torah, it does answer several important questions and I personally accept it as factual.
Kenan was infected with the Seed of the Nephilim. Despite the appeals of Noach avinu (father Noah) Kenan refused to enter the ark. He fled into the mountains (presumably with a female) and this is how the blood of the Nephilim survived the global flood.
The name Kenan is the origin of the name Caanan and further explains why Adonai was so adamant that these people be utterly destroyed by the Israelite armies.
The "star seeds" already planted in the earthlings remains and passes through the infected lineages however non-human beings can no longer impregnate human females as happened in the Genesis account. Non-infected humans can become infected through sexual relations with the infected. Such intercourse often results in severe mutations and genetic disabilities in the children born from such unions.
The hybrid Nephilim lineages continue to exist and they rule today through the houses of the European Merovingian royals. These "elite" humans have maintained their bloodlines throughout the ages as is evident from the engraving on their coats of arms and in their traditions and legions. Their families include the most influential people on the planet and most rulers in the EU and the US.
Early on following the flood these hybrid people lived in Babylon, Chaldea and Sumer ("Land of the Lords of Brightness," i.e. the Illuminati or Illumined Ones). They thrived throughout the Land of Canaan but HaShem lead his people Israel to destroy as many of them as possible. Again, this is the real reason for the demands to utterly annihilate the various Pagan peoples of the Land (Eretz Israel) as recorded in the Tanakh. The Nephilim hybrids also settled in Egypt where they ruled as the Pharaohs.
Eventually the main lineages left Egypt and settled in the Bavarian European highlands where today they are partly known as the Merovingians as discussed above. The "purest" lineage or house of the Merovingian hybrid lineage is known as the San Grael or "Holy Blood" which supposedly flows through both Adon Y'shua (through Mary Madelene his alleged wife).
This royal blood line is protected by the Bavarian Illuminati. The Illumined Ones have worked ceaselessly for the past 2000 years manipulating and empowering this bloodline through the development and implementation of genetics for the purpose of producing the "perfect human." They have now succeeded in this goal and the Rex Mundi (Antichrist) will soon declare his authority and rule the Earth as the Merovingian king.
We will discuss Rex Mundi in some detail later. For now the point is to show that the Global Flood occurred to protect the human race from domination by the Nephilim.
The Rainbow Covenant
Having broken the hold of the Nephilim over the Earth with the flood, HaShem restored our (human) independence. He offered the Earth's indigenous (non-Nephilim) inhabitants a covenant. By observing the terms of this "Rainbow Covenant" the human race could move toward reestablishing harmony with the Echad Elohiym (the One True God) and thereby defeat the Elite and stand with HaShem. Of course free will always applies and humanity was/is also free to allow Lucifer and his Nephilim diabolos to rule the planet. This remains our choice today. This remains your choice.Joshua 24:15 And if it seems evil to you to serve Adonai, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods [elohiym] which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods [elohiym] of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve HaShem [i.e. the Echad Elohiym, the One True God]
After the global flood waters had receded from the Earth Noach avinu (father Noah) built an alter to the Echad Elohiym on behalf of himself and those with him. Adonai accepted his offering and then:CJB: Genesis 8:21 ADONAI smelled the sweet aroma, and ADONAI said in his heart, "I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, since the imaginings of a person's heart are evil from his youth; nor will I ever again destroy all living things, as I have done.
22 So long as the earth exists, sowing time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease."
The Holy Name
Note that at this point the Holy Name of the Echad Elohiym had not yet been revealed to humanity. The Echad Elohiym (which is a title not a name) is not a person as we conceive of people; the One God is utterly beyond all comprehension. As explained in part 2 of this study the En Soph manifests as the Echad Elohiym in duality as an Individual Being however and He has a proper Name as well as myriad titles like El-ohiym (God), El Gibbor (the Mighty God) and so on.
The Holy Name of the One is utterly Sacred and is never to be lightly employed in writing or in speech. To honor the sanctity of the Holy Name we typically say "Adonai" (the LORD) or "HaShem" (the NAME) rather than utter or write out the Name as I discuss Here.
The Holy Name of the One is (read from right to left) יהוה: transliterated as: Yod He Vav He. By the standard rules of pronunciation the Name is pronounced as YaHoVaH ("Yah Hoe-Vah"). There are many suggested ways to pronounce the Name but I believe this is the correct pronunciation based on standard Hebrew pronunciation.
Moshe avinu (Moses our father) wrote his Genesis account of Noach's experiences after the Holy Name had been revealed to him. He included the Name in his writings but understand that Noach was unaware of It while on earth (Exodus 6:3). I mention this in passing to remind you that Adonai reveals Himself gradually to His people as history unfolds.
When studying the Scriptures we need to remember that we today have fuller knowledge of many topics that those living in the past. At the same time, due to our weak faith and basic Secular Humanist paradigms our comprehension of what HaShem reveals is often less than theirs. We require humility to learn from the past as well as the intellect to "rightly divide the Word of Truth" (II Timothy 2:15). If our views are not harmonious with Torah we are incorrect.CJB: Exodus 6:2 God [elohiym] spoke to Moshe; he said to him, "I am ADONAI.
3 I appeared to Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya'akov as El Shaddai [God Almighty], although I did not make myself known to them by my name, Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh [Adonai; HaShem].
The B'nei Noach
Noach avinu was making sacrifice here (in Genesis 8) for his family and yet HaShem accepted that sacrifice for not only his family but for us as well!
Adonai looks at the heart of individuals and blesses us beyond our knowledge! Our limited understandings do not limit His Love for us, however our love for Him should motivate us to seek ever deeper and more accurate knowledge of the things of God. As Nazarenes this includes our desire to remove all Pagan influences from our understandings of Adonai and His Son Adon Y'shua. HaShem is patient with our ignorance but our love for Him who first loved us drives us to seek the most accurate understandings possible. This balance (between heart and legalism) was one of Adon Y'shua's most prominent teachings.
Moshe's Book of Genesis (B'resheet in Hebrew) records the three sons of Noach who survived the global deluge. No reference is made here to Kenan however the Canaanites who were so thoroughly infected by the Nephilim seed are specifically cursed as we will see below.
Following are the sons of our mutual father Noach and the roles they and their offspring are to play if they will be harmonious with the Will of HaShem, the Echad Elohiym:Shem: This oldest son of Noach avinu is granted the rights of the firstborn by Noach (and HaShem). He is the leader of the B'nei Noach (the children of Noach). The lineage of the descendants of Shem passed through Eber (origin of the name Hebrew: Eberites). From Eber came the Hebrew Avraham avinu and his physical descendants -- which include the Semitic Jews through Sarah and the Semitic Northern Arabs through Hagar and Ishmael. The Shemite line also includes the peoples who settled to the east of Babylon and the Persian Gulf, the Assyrians and the other Semites.
Eventually the blessings bestowed upon this lineage were narrowed by Adonai to the descendants of Avraham and Sarah: the Israelites (i.e. the line of Ishmael and his mother Hagar was specifically excluded by God: Genesis 17:20,21). Later the Ten Israelite Tribes or Houses (known jointly as Ephraim) were "divorced" (Jeremiah 3:8) and temporarily severed from this lineage -- although Mashiach will restore them as he establishes the kingdom: Revelation 11:, Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 3:6-18; Hosea 1-3; Amos 9:8-10; Obadia 15-21; Micah 2:12-13; 5:3-15; Zechariah 8:13; 9 & 10; Ezekiel 34-37).
While Semites (Shemites) are a distinct racial group, the blessings of Shem flowed through Avraham avinu and the House of Judah (and Binyamin: Benjamin): the Jews. The blessing of Shem therefore extends to all those who are born or grafted (adopted) into the family of Avraham through Judah and Benjamin -- whether through Rabbinic, Karaite or Nazarene Judaism. This includes those who enter into the B'rit Hadashah (New Covenant) established by Cohen Gadol and coming Mashiach Y'shua (Romans 2:28). All converts to Judaism "become Jews" and are thus adopted into lineage of Shem. For clarity of terminology it can be said that the Gentile talmidim (students) of Y'shua are "Nazarene Jews" or "Messianic Jews."
Ham: Canaan (Ham's son) and his offspring are specifically cursed by Noah. This is because of the star seed infection passed on to them through their name bearer Kenan (Noach's rebellious son mentioned above). The connection between Ham and Kenan is not made clear in the text however the account of Ham's sexual abuse of his father (Genesis 9:20-23) gives room for certain speculations we need not go into here. It is declared that these people are to be servants to their brothers and should not be granted positions of authority (as currently held by Egypt's al Ikhwan: Muslim brotherhood). Ham's descendants are said to include Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans, Phoenicians, Hittites and others.
Japheth: His descendants will be "enlarged" and blessed as they "dwell in the tents of Shem." In other words, these people, if they are wise, will live by the blessings of Shem. Later on in Genesis this relationship becomes clearer. If the descendants of Japheth use their material blessings to bless and bolster the descendants of Shem (i.e. the Jews), they will be blessed by HaShem. Conversely if they 'leave the tents of Shem' and turn their backs on the Jews, refusing to support and bless the Shemites, then HaShem will curse Japheth's descendants (Genesis 12:1-3). This blessing/cursing applies to the descendants of Ham as well, however it is especially applicable for the descendants of Japheth who are specifically instructed by HaShem to live in "the tents of Shem."
The descendants of Japheth include the Cimmerians, Cimbri, Celts, Scythians, Russians, Greeks, Anglo-Saxons, Syrians, Thracians, Armenians, peoples of Asia Minor, Sicilians, Cypriots etc.
HaShem's Order for the World
The Jews (or Shemites) are ordained by HaShem in the Torah to be the priests of the earth.CJB: Exodus 19:5 Now if you will pay careful attention to what I say and keep my covenant, then you will be my own treasure from among all the peoples, for all the earth is mine;
6 and you will be a kingdom of cohanim [priests] for me, a nation set apart.'These are the words you are to speak to the people of Isra'el."
This is the eternal obligation of the Jewish people. To facilitate this they were given the 613 Mitzvot or Laws. Most of these Laws do not now nor have they ever been applicable to non-Jews. We Gentiles have never been "under the Law" in this context.
The descendants of Japheth are commanded to bless Am Israel (the Jewish people) and to assist them and learn from them. To facilitate this we were given the Seven Laws (see below).
The descendants of Ham are to serve both the Japhethites and the Shemites so that together the three families of the Earth can attain harmony with HaShem our Elohiym. These people are also required by Adonai to observe the Seven Laws.
Unfortunately these biblically mandated responsibilities have not been followed by any of the three principle people groups (Romans 11:32):
The Jews as a group have failed to maintain proper submission to HaShem. They (as a group) have disobeyed Moshe, allowed legalism to replace loving service and rejected those sent to them, including Adon Y'shua. They have in far too many instances set themselves apart from the world and failed to instruct humanity about our obligations under the Seven Laws.
Likewise the Noachide Nations have failed to fulfill our obligations to Adonai. Too often Gentiles turned against the Jews with fierce wrath and antisemitism. They have worshiped other gods and gone their own ways. The mainly Gentile Nicene Church has fundamentally altered the B'rit Hadashah (New Covenant) placed in their care by Cohen Gadol Y'shua.
The foundations of the earth are out of balance and will continue to be so until the manifestation of Adon Y'shua as Mashiach.
How to Reestablish Harmony
The Sheva Mitzvot B'nei Noach or Seven Noahide Laws of the Sons of Noach are incumbent upon us all, Jews and Gentiles alike:
"From One Blood"KJV: Acts 17:26 And [God] hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
Most modern translations and paraphrases have this verse as "from one man" or "from one person" rather than "from one blood" as the older versions (including the King James version, the Geneva Bible, the Bishops Bible, even the English Majority Text Version -- a much broader translation than the others, which come through the Textus Receptus only as described above). The Aramaic Peshita (compare the Lamsa translation) also reads: And he has made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth...
The Greek text has this as "of [or from: ek, ex] one aima [literally one blood]." The word aima ("hah'ee-mah") means blood: literally (of men or animals), figuratively (the juice of grapes), by implication bloodshed, also kindred: - blood."
Why do almost all of the modern Bible versions change this important verse? Don't get me started!... However... By changing this key word they remove a critical biblical truth. From one pure blood (i.e. Adam's) God created all humans to dwell on the Earth. The statement itself implies that there is also a contaminated lineage or "kindred" bloodline that exists: The Nephilim and their descendants: the Anakim, the Mer People and so on.
The human bloodline from Adam was largely restored by the global flood and the Israeli genocides of the Canaanites, the Anakim, the Rapha (the Philistines) etc. as recorded in the Tanakh however some escaped those campaigns. With the uncontaminated lineage of Noach HaShem established His Rainbow Covenant. All who enter into this covenant are "Noahides" or B'nei Noach.
While the term B'nei Noach simply means "sons/descendants of Noach" and hence refers to all natural earthly humans, the term is properly reserved for those who accept the Sheva Mitzvot B'nei Noach, i.e. the Seven Laws of the Children of Noach.
These seven laws are intended to empower all humanity to establish harmony with the One God and to avoid the machinations of the Luciferian diabolos.
The Luciferian challenge is that humans will determine that independence is preferable (more to our benefit) than establishing harmony with the true God and living according to His Torah.
Through the process of gilgul neshamot (the cyclical rolling of souls) the living entities seek meaning in isolation from the Source: the Echad Elohiym. We do this through human created gods, religions and philosophies, through wealth, through greed, through power, through sexuality, through material possessions... in innumerable ways. Mostly these attempts are purely human creations. The comedian Flip Wilson's comment "The Devil made me do this" demonstrates the absurdity of blaming others for our own short comings. Demons exist and they sometimes help us with our rebellious plans, but the buck stops with each of us as individuals and with humanity collectively.
Much to Lucifer's displeasure, in time most of us determine that harmony with God is preferable, that His Torah is our freedom. This is why so much effort is expended by the Elite seeking to discredit Jews and others who place their faith in God.
Once a soul determines to turn to the Echad Elohiym the Noahide Laws -- by whatever name -- provide direction. These Seven Laws form the basics of most historic legal systems. They give us a starting place from which to begin establishing our harmony with Adonai.
As a sign of this covenant Adonai created the rainbow effect (Genesis 9:12) to serve as a perpetual reminder of HaShem's love for His earthly creation and our responsibilities under the covenant.
The Rainbow Covenant fundamentally altered life on earth.
Meat Eating and Other ViolenceKJV: Genesis 9:1 God blessed Noach and his sons and said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth.
2 The fear and dread of you will be upon every wild animal, every bird in the air, every creature populating the ground, and all the fish in the sea; they have been handed over to you.
3 Every moving thing that lives will be food for you; just as I gave you green plants before, so now I give you everything -
4 only flesh with its life, which is its blood, you are not to eat.
Adonai begins explaining His covenant to Noah by altering human-animal relations. Noach avinu and his family had rescued the animals, had them living among them on the ark without any fear or danger, but now that would change.
This change is symbolic of the change between humans (those of the one blood of Adam) and the beasts (symbolic of the hybrid blood linage).
Adam was told that the animals would thereafter have a natural "fear" of humankind. Prior to this time Scripture teaches that no such fear existed between humans and animals. In the Garden of Eden we see examples of this peaceful coexistence as Adam and Eve went safely out for their walks. The animals felt no "dread" that their human caretakers might harm them but now, with the establishment of the Rainbow Covenant that peaceful state was altered.
It seems at first glance that this fear was a curse, however when one considers human free will and how Cain murdered his brother we can understand that this was actually a kindness to the animals, an instinctual warning for them to be wary of humans. Likewise it would serve as a symbolic reminder of the division between the humans and the Nephilim descendants. These hybrid people are not to be trusted.
Prior to this point there is no evidence in the Bible that humans had ever consumed the flesh of the animals and so there was no need for them to fear us. After the flood however Adonai specifically granted humans additional authority to begin eating the animals (under certain conditions described in kashrut or biblical dietary laws and later reformed by Y'shua and his talmidim).
Under the Seven Noahide Laws the restrictions on consuming animal flesh is less strict than under the Mosaic and rabbinic halacha. The rules are also less strict under the B'rit Hadashah (New Covenant).
According to the Hebrew prophets, once Mashiach (Adon Y'shua) takes up the mantle of his rule and ushers in the Messianic Age this fear will again be removed and humans will return to a peaceful, healthful vegetarian diet (Isaiah 11:1-10).
I discuss biblical vegetarianism in some detail elsewhere if you are interested so we will move on. For now, to avoid confusion, I simply note that humans are currently allowed by the Bible to eat the flesh of most other creatures (I Corinthians 8:8) however this does not mean it must or even should be done. A vegetarian diet is much healthier and better for all beings involved.
Among the instructions of Adonai revealed to Noach avinu none are more important than the Sheva Mitzvot.
The Sheva Mitzvot (Seven Laws)
As these laws are again being publicized by Chabad (due in large part to the Lubavitcher Rebbe of blessed memory) and the various Noahide and Nazarene movements there are some people claiming they are without historic precedent. This is incorrect. The Seven Laws are clearly defined in the Torah and there is ample evidence of their application among Gentiles well into the New Testament where the talmidim based their rules for new converts on them (Acts 15:).
There are also Antisemitic claims that the Seven Laws are being created by Jewish Elders (ZOG etc.) to control the Gentiles. Again, not so. These laws are ancient and even a cursory look at historic Jewish-Christian relations dispels such ridiculous notions. The Sheva Mitzvot are biblical and universally binding and applicable to all people for the benefit of all the earth.
The Laws also apply to Jews, however they exist for them with far more specificity in the 613 Mitzvot they are obligated to observe under the Mosaic Covenant.
All non-Jews who willingly embrace the Noahide Covenant as defined in the Written Torah are B'nei Noahides by definition. There is nothing to join, no vows to take other than agreement nor any dues to pay. One need not submit to the authority of the Sanhedrin's Noahide Counsel nor to any other group or person. This is our birthright as human beings.
Many modern Noahides believe they must place themselves under Rabbinic authority or some Orthodox authorized Noahide beit din. Its important to understand however that the Noahide covenant exists independent of the covenants of the Jews. Noahides can certainly learn a lot from the rabbis and aligning with such groups can be beneficial, but the Noahide Covenant is not dependent on Jewish approval, instruction nor acceptance. Its between individuals and Adonai.
The Sheva Mitzvot are included within the Sinai or Mosaic covenant which is the birthright and obligation of the Jewish people. Since the Chosen People have a higher calling and destiny, they are commanded to maintain purer standards than Noahides. Jews are to observe the Seven Noahide Commandments as part of their 613 mitzvot (as enumerated by Maimonides). These 613 mitzvot (commandments) are not required of Noahides although many of them can be adopted by Noahides for added blessings. The main exceptions have to do with mitzvot at the Temple which at this point has yet to be rebuilt (may it be soon!).
Bear in mind that we are speaking of Noahides here, not Noahide Nazarenes. Our obligations as Nazarenes in this regard will be addressed later in this study. Nazarenes are also under the Sheva Mitzvot as are all who choose to seek harmony with Adonai.
These Seven Laws are sometimes subdivided into 66 sub-laws. Understanding these sub-laws can help one attain deeper understanding of the Seven Laws. Many Noahides place great emphasis on keeping these laws to the letter. Like many Jews, some Noahides believe that solely by observing these seven (or sixty-six) laws they will find favor with HaShem. Noahide Nazarenes on the other hand believe it is the consciousness behind the observance that Adonai rewards. As Adon Y'shua's brother James notes, without the works how will one demonstrate the consciousness of faith? Faith and works go together even though our salvation is by faith alone. This balance is often misunderstood as people tend to go to extremes on either side.
When Noahides formally convert to Judaism through a Jewish beit din they are responsible for the 613 mitzvot as any other Jew.
When anyone adopts the Nazarene Way they are under the rules of Torah as presented/reformed by Cohen Gadol Y'shua. Again, more on this later.
The Sheva Mitzvot B'nei Noach
- Avodah Zarah: Prohibition on idolatry.
This includes all forms of idolatry including placing anything before ones service and devotion to HaShem.
- Birchat HaShem: Commandment to bless the Name of HaShem.
Inherent in this is the prohibition against blasphemy, cursing and dishonoring the Name of God. For this reason, as discussed above, we typically say Adonai ("the LORD") or HaShem ("The Name") or Y'Ya rather than utter or write the Holy Name.
- Shefichat Damim: Prohibition on murder.
Murder refers to the unjustified taking of a human life (killing animals is not murder biblically speaking). It does not refer to doing so justly. There is righteous taking of life and unrighteous taking of life.
- Gezel: Prohibition on robbery and theft.
- Gilui Arayot: Prohibition on immorality and forbidden sexual relations.
These rules and mores are determined by consultation with the Bible and vary from one culture to another. What is acceptable in one setting may not be in another.
- Ever Min HaChay: Prohibition on removing and eating a limb from a live animal.
This is widely interpreted but essentially forbids all cruelty to animals.
- Dinim: Requirement to establish justice systems and courts of law to enforce the other 6 laws.
We humans have free will and our societies are not static. The Noahide Laws require and empower humanity to self-rule harmonious with divine revelations granted by Adonai.
For more information on the Sheva Mitzvot see my study: The Seven Laws
These covenant commandments of Adonai are for all the descendants of Noach Avinu.
Adonai is our Eternal Well-Wisher. He wants only the best for His creation and all of His Laws and Covenants have our best interests at heart (Deuteronomy 10:13). Our best is to be found in harmony with HaShem alone. This is the point of them all.
As time passes Adonai consistently leads those who choose Him. Without understanding the revealed Torah and HaShem's historic dealings with His people it is not possible to understand the ministry and reform teachings of Adon Y'shua. Y'shua's teachings do not replace the Torah! They show us how to rightly observe Torah and find harmony with the Echad Elohiym.
This study is focusing on the Noahide Nazarene Way. Understanding these teachings from the Tanakh are essential to Walking the Way of God taught by Y'shua. Therefore we will now consider a basic overview of the Abrahamic and Mosaic Covenants (as well as the deception of Islam) and how these apply to our service.
There's much more to come!
