I remember reading what I thought then as a very odd verse of Scripture many years ago. It is in Ezekiel 23 and it is talking of two sisters who prostituted themselves. The two sisters are metaphors for Samaria and Jerusalem. As with many prophecies, these appear to have duel meanings and contain literal truths. Speaking of the promiscuity of one of the sisters it says:
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses” (Ezekiel 23:20).
I can remember reading this quite a few years ago, and of Enoch several years later, that passage came to mind again. Here Enoch describes a vision he has of the fallen angels descending to earth and having marital relations with human women. This passage contains metaphors where bulls and cows refer to men and women.
“And again I saw with mine eyes as I slept, and I saw the heaven above, and behold a star fell from heaven, and it arose and ate and pastured among those oxen.
And again I saw in the vision, and looked towards the heaven, and behold I saw many stars fall and cast themselves down from heaven to the first star, and they became bulls amongst those cattle and pastured with them.
And I looked at them and saw, and behold they all let out their privy members, like horses, and began to cover the cows of the oxen, and they all became pregnant and bare elephants, camels and asses.
And they began moreover to devour those oxen; and behold, all the children of the earth began to tremble and to quake before them and to flee from them.”
As with many places in Scripture, the angels are called “stars.” The stars fall from heaven and cast themselves down to earth. This proves once more that what we are dealing with are fallen angels who come from this other world called heaven. These are the fallen ones and when they cover the females, they bare what Enoch calls elephants, camels and asses. In other words, they bare monsters who bore little resemblance to the humans.
These are the giants of the Old Testament and of the many myths and legends which speak of giants from every corner of the world. Even in my own country of Ireland, giants are mentioned several times in historical records. Balor was the famous one eyed giant ( Cyclops?)who fought at the battle of Moytura. Close to my cottage on the side of a hill in the west of Ireland there is a mound made of stones which is referred to locally as “the grave of the giant.”
Sir William Wilde, the father of the playwright Oscar Wilde, wrote two books on the history of Ireland. In one he speaks of five brothers who were the high kings of Ireland in an era perhaps 1700BC. One of these kings was named Genan. Wilde describes the most ancient of writing ever found in Ireland which was on a stone plaque placed in a wall in the County of Mayo. He has a sketch of this with a footnote which stated:
“Here lies Genan, king of Ireland which was found in a tomb near the church of Breaffy, in the County of Mayo. And inside the tomb was a skeleton 12.5 feet in length.”
There are other mentions of giants in many localities all over the island of Ireland, the Giants Causeway in County Antrim being the most famous.
But I digress. The giants of the Old Testament were the offspring of the Nephilim or fallen angels of Genesis 6. These fallen angels are locked up in the bottomless pit since the days of the Flood of Noah. But there was a second irruption of fallen angels with women after the Flood and the giant offspring of these are recalled several times in scripture. For instance, when Moses sent in 12 spies to reconnoitre the Promised Land, they returned and explained how that the whole area was filled with giants. Compared to these giants, they said, the Israelites looked like grasshoppers.
When Enoch says that the angels had privy members were like those of horses, this ties in with the passage quoted from Ezekiel where the prophet describes the men of Egypt whose genitals were like donkeys and whose emissions were like horses. Surely both these prophets are speaking of the same men. Interestingly, there are many ancient friezes on the walls of various tombs and sarcophagi all over Egypt depicting men with privy members like those of horses.
I have some pictures of these in my book, The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse. One famous picture shows a smiling man who is adorned in the dress of the gods. He has indeed a protruding privy member that is similar to that of a horse. The caption tells us that this is the god Min. I was tempted to add that if this was Min, one might only wonder what his brother, Max, looked like!
Speaking of a righteous angel who came to capture the fallen stars, Enoch continues:
“And I saw one of those four (angels) who had come forth first, and he seized the first star that had fallen from the heavens, and bound it hand and foot and cast it into an abyss: now that abyss was narrow and deep, and horrible and dark.
And as I was beholding in the vision, lo, one of the four who had come forth stoned them from heaven, and gathered and took all the great stars whose privy members were like those of horses, and bound them all hand and foot and cast them in an abyss of the earth.”
Very little information is provided in Scripture pertaining to the Nephilim or fallen ones of Genesis 6 and after. In this regard, Enoch fills in many of the blanks and provides lots of pieces of the jig-saw puzzle. It is only because the book of Enoch is directly quoted from in Scripture that we relay it here. It proves much of what has been presented thus far and gives us the bigger picture as to the happenings of those bygone days of yore. Truly those were violent and evil times which spanned as much as a 1,000 years to the point that “every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Although the Bible is emphatic that the fallen angels of the pre-Flood era are incarcerated in the bottomless pit to be released in the time if the Apocalypse, we are not told that the Nephilim who fell AFTER the Flood are imprisoned. It is my guess that these are still at large. And there is ample evidence that these fallen angels inhabited many locations beginning in the Near East and then spread out to desolate and lonely areas in order to stay ahead of the onslaught of mankind.
For instance, again quoting from Sir William Wilde, in his book published in 1849, he talks of one of the first tribes to inhabit Ireland in ancient times called the Tuatha De Danaan. He says:
“These hostile invaders, who are stated to be skilled in magic, necromancy and the black arts, are supposed by some writers, even in the present day, not to be human beings at all, but fairies or sprites (spirits).”
These spirit men were probably the Druids of ancient Ireland who also practiced human blood sacrifices. No doubt these were also the builders of many of the ancient dolmens and tombs of Ireland such as the passage tomb of Newgrange. Two days ago was the 21 December otherwise known as the Winter Solstice. On just this one day of the year, the sun rises and its light enters the narrow passage and illuminates the inner sanctum of the large structure.
Experts tell us that the Mayan Calendar, supposed to be the most accurate ancient calendar ever made, terminates on the 21 December in 2012. There is obviously a connection between the builders of the tombs at Newgrange and the circular stone Mayan calendar. It is also obvious that these were constructed by persons of superior knowledge who were familiar with celestial events and not by a bunch of savages running through the forest half naked with bones in their noses. The same goes for many of the ancient monuments that populate the world , which, we are confidently told by engineers, we would be hard pressed to replicate today, despite all the technology and machinery we possess.
I was discussing the Tuatha De Danaan one day some years ago with a young Christian man from the North of Ireland. When I likened this race to the Nephilim or spirits of the Scriptures, the young man remarked, “That’s right Paddy. It wasn’t the snakes that Saint Patrick drove out of Ireland. It was the serpents.”
