The word "dinosaur" didn't exist until Sir Richard Owen coined it in 1841. "Dinosaur" comes from the Greek, and means "terrible or monstrous lizard." Before 1841, the word used was "dragon."
Archeological evidence shows us that dinosaurs and man were on the earth at the same time. When the findings in Glenrose, Texas hit the mainstream, showing the same age human footprints with dinosaur prints, Christians the world over were shaking their heads, and saying "duh." We already knew dinosaurs and humans existed at the same time, we read all about it in the Bible.
Dragons (which is a more accurate term than "dinosaurs") were created by God on the sixth day of creation. The word "dragon" is mentioned in the Bible 34 times. From these Scriptures, we learn that:
- Some dragons are poisonous, like some snakes are poisonous - "Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps." -Deuteronomy 32:33
- Some places or areas were named after dragons, such as the "dragon well." - "And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire." -Nehemiah 2:13
- Dragons were just another animal out there, just like lions and snakes are common animals. "Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet." -Psalm 91:13
- Behemoth is a dragon. "Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron." -Job 40:15-18
- Dragons were amongst other animals that often took over abandoned or desolated places. "And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls." -Isaiah 34:13
- Dragons shall honor the Lord. "The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen." -Isaiah 43:20
- "A great dragon," or "the dragon" is a form Satan can take, or is a symbol for him. "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels" -Revelation 12:7
Dragons are still here. There was no big meteor event. Baby dragons were brought into the ark with Noah, as well as all the other animals:
"And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female." -Genesis 6:19
Numerous animals, said to have been extinct, have been found to be still alive, and not to have "evolved" any further than their historical record. A famous example of this, is the Coelacanth.
Sightings of flying, water dwelling, and land dragons are reported all over the world. Different cultures come up with different names for them. Dragons are not extinct, they are just endangered, but are probably more plentiful in unsettled jungles and thick areas of the world.
Myths tend to erupt from ancients making up stories, to try to explain what they couldn't comprehend. Some myths, however, come from actual events, and these events have just become corrupted over the years of retellings, and finally re-writings. The famous mythical character, Hercules, is a good example. He was touted to be half god, and half man. There really were people walking the earth that were half god, and half man. Notice here that I said god - lower case 'g.' This is because these "gods" are not the one, true God, but are great deceivers, led by the Prince of the Power of the Air:
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" -Ephesians 2:2
There are ancient drawings of what look to us like modern UFOs. These objects come from the prince, and his minions. Just as we see God in a UFO - a chariot of fire, when Elijah was taken alive into heaven, the false gods also have transdimensional vehicles of light. Just as God is light, so can the devil and his minions appear as beings of light:
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." -2 Corinthians 11:14
These false gods were sometimes referred to as Watchers, as they were touted to watch over man, much like some picture how the mythical Olympian gods of Greece, would. These Watchers would make great, mighty appearances with their UFOs, along with displays of their other technologies, and the peoples of the world were astonished.
Today, we have more and more UFO sightings and abductions. Some of the witness testimonies are just LSD crazed hallucinogenic led farces, and some of the witnesses are just lying through their teeth. However, there are a number of witnesses who are credible. Their spouse would turn over, and notice them missing from the bed, and wouldn't find them again for several hours to several days. The person would arrive back, with scars, cuttings, and other visible marks of aparent surgery, and sometimes, what looked to be outright torture and abuse.
There is a book called "Unholy Communions: The Alien Abduction Phenomenon, Where it Originates - and How it Stops." I haven't read this book yet, but have read of it in another book, which said this book discusses people who were being repeatedly and regularly abducted, and were instructed to mention "Jesus" at their next abduction. When tried, the "aliens" would flee. Part of this book's description on Amazon.com says "Having documented more than 300 actual test cases, experiencers (as they are called in abduction communities) have witnessed their abuse permanently stopped due to this research. In essence, they have been cured of an unknown malady through what most in the public will find to be shocking, disturbing or a confirmation of faith the power of Jesus name."
Author William Schnoebelen gives a testimony in his book "Lucifer Dethroned," in which he tells about how he was able to cast out devils through the name of Jesus before he was saved. At that time, he was a practicing Wiccan, but was taken aback by the power in the mere mention of Jesus. He eventually got saved, and now runs a wonderful ministry that educates the public about the occult, and helps people get out of it.
New, corrupted Bible versions use the word "demon," however the more accurate term is "devil," so I will try to stick with that term in this article. The word "Demon" can disassociate them from the devil, which can cause confusion. The word devil(s) is in the Bible 106 times. Through a study of these creatures, we learn that devils used to be angels, and so did Satan/Lucifer. Like man, angels have free will, and Lucifer became prideful, and decided he wanted to be in charge. 1/3 of the angels sided with him. Satan become known as the devil, and his fallen angels became known as devils.
These devils are the false gods - the Watchers - the new age beings of Nibiru, the Greys, etc:
"They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not." -Deuteronomy 32:17
When Christians celebrate outright heathen holidays, such as Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Valentines day, they are sacrificing unto devils, not to God. See the "Holiday Truths" section in the left sidebar for plenteous inundations of Scriptural facts to back this up.
The devils/fallen angels bred with human women, and created half-breeds, known under the Hebrew word "Nephilim." In the English, they are often called "giants." The Nephilim were devil spawn - literally - they were half devil (not THE devil, but devils) and half human. The highly credible Jewish historian, Josephus, mentions some interesting facts about giants:
"For many angels of God accompanied with women, and begat sons that proved unjust, and despisers of all that was good, on account of the confidence they had in their own strength; for the tradition is, that these men did what resembled the acts of those whom the Grecians call giants."
"For which reason they removed their camp to Hebron; and when they had taken it, they slew all the inhabitants. There were till then left the
race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and
terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men. Now they
gave this city to the Levites as an extraordinary reward."
The above two quotes are from The Works of Flavius Josephus.
The below picture is "Mundus Subterraneus" - 1665:
Notice "Subterrraneus." There have been reports of races of giants found alive and well in communities underground. The Isralities didn't kill all of the Nephilim. Perhaps they went underground - literally. These underground giants are said to eat men.
The giants/Nephilim first seemed to infiltrate in the days before the flood:
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 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. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." -Genesis 6:1-5
Up until the teacher of many falsities - Augustine, the common teaching was that the sons of God in the Old Testament referred to angels. This is accurate. Never, does the Old Testament refer to just a human as a son of God. Humans aren't referred to as sons of God until the New Testament, and it says we are adopted sons of God, when we become born again. The above Scripture is referring to some of the fallen angels who created half breeds with earth women.
The fallen angels that committed that literal monstrosity are now in chains in darkness, imprisoned:
"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day." Jude 1:6
Some believe that the devils made another attempt at creating the half-breed giants once again, and that is why giants eventually appeared after the flood. If this were the case, then I don't know if the fallen angels guilty of the act this time were also put into prison yet, or not. I think that it's possible that the giants reappeared via a gene carried by Ham's wife, and the devils didn't need to start over.
Meanwhile, when the Israelites were to take the Promised Land, they were commanded to drive the inhabitants out of the land, and to kill the giants. The first wave of giants were killed via the global flood. The second wave were supposed to be killed via the Israelites following the Lord's instruction. Will there be a third wave?
Let us take a look at the first prophecy of Christ:
"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." -Genesis 3:15
The seed of the woman was fulfilled via the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. That was a literal fulfillment of "her seed." "Thy seed" above - is referring to the seed of Satan. Will antichrist be a genetic seed of Satan? It's possible he'll start off as a regular human, but will eventually receive a gift from Lucifer, of genetic data, which will transform his DNA into part Satan, and part man. If this occurs, then perhaps the mark of the beast isn't just a microchip or mark. Perhaps it's also a genetic deposit, and this could be why NO ONE who receives the mark or name of the beast can get saved. Nephilim can't get saved. They despise God, and tout Lucifer as their king.
"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." -Daniel 2:43
Is the above describing the reappearnce of Nephilim, or is the seed of Satan a spiritual seed, and not physical, like the below:
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." -John 8:44
We have spiritual seed of Satan all around us. In fact, there are more spiritual seed of the devil around us, than there is of God. Will the seed that mingles with the seed of men be physical, or spiritual, or both?
Were all Nephilim giants, or were some closer to normal height, but had other abilities? Are there Nephilim with us, today?
