The Rephaim

Who were the people that the Bible refers to as the Rephaim? Where did they live? Where did they come from? Where did they go? Most students of Bible prophecy are very aware of who the Nephilim were. In Genesis chapter 6, it tells us that fallen angels came down to earth and had children with the daughters of men that came to be known as the Nephilim. One of the key characteristics of these Nephilim were their giant size.

In Genesis 6:1-4, we read the following....

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.

One of the key phrases in the passage above is "and also after that".  Most serious students of Bible prophecy understand that there were giants on the earth before the flood, but many do not realize that the Scriptures also tell us that there were giants on the earth after the flood.

Satan and the fallen angels had tried to corrupt the DNA of mankind before the flood so that the Messiah could never appear.  That is why the flood had to come.  But apparently the fallen angels tried again after the flood. 

Satan filled "the promised land" up with these giants so that the people of Israel could not produce the Messiah there.  That is why these hybrid races had to be exterminated by the people of Israel when they conquered the land.

One of these races of giants was known as the Rephaim.
In Genesis 14:5 it tells us that the Rephaim were involved in wars in the promised land during the time of Abraham....

In the fourteenth year, Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him went out and defeated the Rephaites in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzites in Ham, the Emites in Shaveh Kiriathaim

Not only that, but in Genesis 15: 18-21, God told Abraham that the land of the Rephaim was part of the land that God was giving to him and his descendants....

In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

In fact, in the book of Joshua it tells us that Og the king of Bashan was one of the Rephaim.  For example, Joshua 12:4 tells us this....

And the territory of Og king of Bashan, one of the last of the Rephaites, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei.

Joshua 13:12 also tells us that Og was "one of the last" of the Rephaites....

that is, the whole kingdom of Og in Bashan, who had reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei and had survived as one of the last of the Rephaites. Moses had defeated them and taken over their land.

Not only was Og one of the last survivors of the Rephaim, but he was also an incredibly large man.  The Scriptures tell us that his bed was 9 cubits (approximately 13 feet) long. 

Now what kind of man would need a 13 foot long bed?

A giant - that is who would need such a long bed.  

In fact, in Deuteronomy 3:11-13 we find that the land of Bashan was known as the land of the giants....

For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.  And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.  And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

Well, these wicked giants were defeated when Joshua and the people of Israel conquered the promised land.  We find a reference to this in the book of Joshua in Joshua 17:15....

"If you are so numerous," Joshua answered, "and if the hill country of Ephraim is too small for you, go up into the forest and clear land for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaites."

But even after the Rephaim were wiped out, their legacy remained.  In fact a whole valley was named after them.  It turned out that the "Valley of Rephaim" witnessed quite a number of battles according to the Scriptures.  We see one example of this in 2 Samuel 5:22....

And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.

We see another example of this during King David's day in 1 Chronicles 11:15....

Now three of the thirty captains went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim.

There are also references to the Rephaim in ancient Ugaritic and Phoenician sources.  The truth is that giants once roamed this earth - before and after the flood.  These giants were not fully human.  There were the result of the mixture of human DNA with the DNA of fallen angels.  As inconceivable as that may seem to many, the reality is that not only did that happen in ancient times, but it is also starting to happen once again.

Are you ready for the return of the Nephilim?


  1. Hey, I've been watching Youtube videos of Chuck Missler, and I agree with your blog. Very, very interesting stuff!

    1. LISTEN EVERYONE! GET A NIV STUDY BIBLE. read it and its explanations. People s' opinions and secondary books trying explain and teach the word of God can be confusing and misleading even if they mean well. Meanings can be misconstrude and diluted. GO TO THE STRAIGHT TRUE ORIGINAL SOURCE. THE HOLY BIBLE!!! WHY DO PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK THEY KNOW A LITTLE BETTER. Are you a prophet of God? NO! Read the Bible. Don't take my word for it. Or any one else's . Take God's word for it!!! NIV STUDENT. OR STUDY BIBLES ONLY PEOPLE

    2. NIV only? Sorry, NIV does not have the corner on the market. It is the WORD, but the good ole KING JAMES VERSION will work just fine too. Just sayin'.
      God Bless

  2. OK, if the fallen angels did not ever get bodies, how could they mix seed with others and how did their DNA corrupt others'? This article makes it appear that God failed in his plan, which is blasphemous.

    1. Apparently they can manifest into the physical if briefly. Angels in general are multidimensional and the spirit realm is just a different dimension from the physical realm. They may hace built themselves artificial bodies which may be what these "aliens" and UFO's are about. So called extraterrestrials are cited as doing the same things today that angels in the bible could do like walk through walls, make people fall asleep, render someone helpless without even touching them.

    2. Hello, angels are spiritual beings, they are not bound by the same laws of physics we are. It is perfectly plausable and provable through the bible that angels were able to take human form. When the angels come to Lot to warn him to leave Sodom and Gammorah, it says that many people in the city saw these men enter Lot's home and they found them to be exceedingly attractive and approached Lot and tried to get Lot to send them out so they could have sex with them. Lot knowing they were messengers from the Lord instead offered his own daughters to the mob. Just because we are bound by physical laws does not mean the Lord's host is, or fallen angels. The Bible tells us that Satan though he is fallen can give the appearance that he is an angel of light. Of course it is always just like simple minded human beings to try to rationalize anything they cannot understand, and if they cant rationalize it they generally discard the information as untrue no matter how much proof they are offered.

    3. These angels were angels of light and can take any form that they so choose

    4. Maybe you should stop preaching your own gospel and listen to what the word says and stop allowing Satan to use you as a tool of confusion...

  3. Dori/Dan...

    Check out the book of Jude. It describes in some detail how this transition took place. They were able, somehow, to become flesh. The question is; what kind of flesh. According to Jude, it was "different" flesh. Also, knowing God, we know that this is all part of His glorious plan. The fact that it seems outrageous to us does not mean that it is not His plan. I don't know much, but I know He is in total control. I hope this helps.

  4. but the bible also says that angels are neither male nor female in heaven and neither will be anyone be given to be married there....

    if Christ is from the beginning, then isn't it right if we call a people as sons of God????

    the word ' men ' in bible most of the times is in reference to the mere mortal nature of man and his sinfulness.....

    so isn't is correct if we say that the daughters of men were the people who were brought up without the fear of God.

    lets imagine a case were the ' sons of god ' or believers married the ' daughters of men ' or unbelievers just because they looked sexually attractive and were appealing........

    also the reason for the giants in those days can be credited for the climatic conditions which were present before the Noah's flood and which i believe is also the reason for such gigantic dinosaur fossils which have been found.....

    slowly ..... the giants vanished away from the face of the earth and also did the bible clearly says that Og the King of Bashan also was a rephaite ( )....
    this was the time when Israelis were freed from Egypt which then was a metropolitan.......

    we can also guess that the modern civilization already began that time.....but there were traces of the Rephaites still present that time.......

    there are still some giant living creatures present today right????

    what i want to say is that why do we have to unnecessarily believe that the giants were there because of some inter breeding of some lustful and fallen angels and some sexy ladies?????? dosen't this sounds like a fairy tale??

    may be the sons of God were simply believers and the daughters of men were unbelievers......
    and nothing to do with fallen angels at all....

    comments please............

  5. It all makes sense now doesn't it. Good stuff!

  6. 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,

    I do NOT believe that Giants were the result of angels DNA mixing with our DNA. It does'nt say that it says: There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that.

    I do however believe that The son's of God were angels and that they did TAKE the daughters of men as wives all that of which they chose! I also think that this was a violent act. In Gen. 32:23-29 Jacob wrestled a "man" but referenced it to an angel. So we know that there are two distinct meanings to man.

    God was angry that this had taken place so he flood the earth and wiped out mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Not the Giants! Because we know that the Giants were also after the flood: There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that. These men children of angels and man were mighty men! Men that were old and renown filled with Gods Knowledge

    Being a mother I also have to say I don't think it is possible to give birth to a giant. Og was said to be some 13 feet tall that would have ment he would had to have been at least 4 feet at birth. Our hips are'nt wide enough.

  7. Keith,
    To what you said about giving birth, that is not necessarily so.
    They could have been born the size of normal infants.
    Perhaps even slightly larger infants, maybe 12 pounds or so.
    But who is to say that they didn't begin growing into their giant form AFTER birth?
    Could it not be that their growth was what caused it?
    After all, this is the case in dwarfism.
    The baby could come looking perfectly fine, but as it grows, you know something

  8. when jesus comes back they the government is gonna try and make us believe that jesus is an alien... just wait ansd see...

    1. You hit the nail right on the head. Just substitute Yahoshuah for jesus. In all these movies and tv shows they prepare you to fight against what comes from the heavens. They are preparing you to fight against the heavenly host when they return to earth with my brother...

  9. VJ Esther 28 May 2012
    Lets not try to understand something that is beyond our understanding.God is who he is and do what he likes.What he does is of a spiritual nature and we try to look at it from a natural point of view. We should not scrath there where it does not itch.If God allowed there to be giants that time of David and Goliath he had his reasons.My spiritual wisdom say that because the people of that time>> the chosen people/the israelites<< did not totally trust in God, but on and off did stray and did sin by not living pleasing unto God,idolatry, worshipping the Golden Calf because they could not and simply would not wait for Moses to return from the mount with the Tablets. You see! the giants were there to afflic those who strayed from God´s works and ways.Yes the Philistines also afflicted the Israelites but our Brave and faithful Daniel did destroy/defeated the Philistine Goliath. So do not scrath where it does not itch...all God´s motives were and is of a spiritual nature and we should not look for natural answers. And as far as giving birth to giants...a giant gave birth to a giant and a giant was partner to another giant. In those times, all the cities were surrounded by walls>>fenched-in<< and the tribes lived amongst themselves. So! the giants lived amongst themselves. I hope this will be of help to you the viewer

  10. The nephilim became a human race and survive thru ham's wife, if you read the genesis chapter 10 the son's of ham all are tall like the ancient pharoas in egypt cannanites, amorites

  11. Who says that we are trying to understand something that is to difficult to understand.?? Really this was not difficult to understand at all, the fallen ones are what the Book of Enoch is all about. I CANNOT understand why there r people who are so very threatened or just very uncomfortable with this topic. There is a great deal of importance assigned to this very subject the end times. I think there are too many people who are in the dark about this and when they are experiencing really trying times in life don't have a clue as to why and way more people are affected by this content than what is understood or recognized. Ignorance about very powerful families and their bloodlines and how they are very connected to the fallen Angels. If you have no idea who your advesary is and what created all of it you can be really vulnerable and a huge target. These r crafty cunning deities and they wait for no one when it comes to their needs or being cut throat about keeping their blood lines pure and in order. They are normally residents of Middle Earth. And yes they are different being that they are inter dimensional. They are not your average life force obviously so people should be more aware and educated about this topic for their own understanding and ability to catch certain traits when meeting someone new making sure your not lining yourself up with other worldly beings or entities that are on a mission to find candidates for ritualistic sacrifices etc. Becuz whether we like it or not that sort of practices do exist today, not entirely how we may think but enough to steal a persons life force or essence. Yoh have to remember that most of these entities that come through in human form again and again need charge we experience normally from having a soul, so its not enough to just gain a body but they are hungry to feel and live as we do. Remember
    We just did some major shifting in our galaxy that places us in perfect alignment with the galactic center, this is the supposedly the dimensional arc point for middle earth in the heavens. Essentially we have merged with another dimension and I laugh when I think about how repeatedly in 2012 there were multiple postings on the internet about Mercury Retrograde being the one responsible for all the high energy, literals warp energy that we were going through. It was actually VERY strong for over a month two different times last year and it had such an ethereal feeling to it. My husband and I could not get over how strong those shifts were and how much of an effect it had on our moral atmosphere. The bible says in Revelation that Just as things were strange in the days of Noah, the same would apply in the last days.

  12. Although I am favorable of the idea of the Nephilim/Rephaim, I must disagree on the belief that the Nephilim will return. Firstly, the Bible tells us in 2 Peter that the Nephilim are bound in hell untill judgement, and that the angels that had sex with the humans are with them. And secondly, probably the best reason why the nephilim will not return, is that the reason they came was to corrupt the bloodline of Christ. Satan has no reason to recreate the nephilim because Jesus has already come and gone back to Heaven, to return in the last days. So, in short, there is no purpose for the nephilim to return, therefore they will not return.

  13. REPHAIM, REPHAEITES- NOT MENTIONED IN KJV of these verses. The other versions have been corrupted. The same publishing company that published NIV also published LaVey's Satanic Bible and Satanic Rituals. Look it up, it's public domain and common knowledge. KNOW THE TRUTH THAT SETS US FREE- Hide his word in your heart that you may not sin against HIM...
    The Rephaim are actually GOOD ANGELS, but the NEWER versions are slandering them. The KJV is becoming obsolete due to people's disgust for what is actually "PROPER" English. England didn't start badgering their own language until Americans and other "English speaking" countries protested. Furthermore Nephilim are the decendants of fallen angels/ demons and women on earth. The Nephilim aren't the fallen angels they are the offspring of demons and humans!

  14. I highly recommend the New Book by Steven Quayle called TRUE LEGENDS!! Mr Quayle is the foremost expert on the DOCUMENTED history of the Giants/Nephilim/Raphaim. His book is factual and contains over 10,000 References that you can refer to. The Fallen Angels corruption of the DNA of Mankind was his attempt to prevent the Lineage of Yahshua and why the flood was sent. Daniel warns of one last attempt in these last days:

    Daniel 2:43 " 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."

    Jesus speaking of Apollyon and his armies that surround Jerusalem said: "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh." LUKE 21:20

    This is the Apollyon is the Abomination that brings with him desolation. This will be a Supernatural Flying army. Those UFO's are not Aliens.

    Jeremiah also describes this:

    "Behold, he shall COME UP AS CLOUDS, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled." JEREMIAH 4:13

    "Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the Lord: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all (RAPHAIM/GIANTS - Strongs 1368) mighty men." JEREMIAH 5:15-16

    The ancient deity Baal was "Lord of War" and "Lord of the Sky". Many titles were given to Baal by adding endings to his name. Some examples found in scripture are Baalhazor "Lord of the Fortresses", Baalbamoth = Lord of the high places, Baalzebub = Lord of those who fly, or, flit. Zebub is a Hebrew verb which means to flit from place to place , having been popularly translated as "Lord of the Flies" it is more properly rendered "Lord of Those Things that Fly".

    Study the Word of God and let the Holy Spirit reveal the Truth to you thru His Word alone and NO mans interpretation.
