Chapter 4: The Move that Almost Won the Game for the Fallen One! Genesis 6 and the Flood of Noah
(Genesis 6:4) There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Most High God came in to the daughters of men and they bore [children] to them. Those [were] the mighty men who [were] of old, men of renown.
A horrific event happened thousands of years ago that, if the written account is true and I believe it is, resulted in the devastation of the surface of the earth and wiped out most of the human race, except for eight people. I’m speaking about the event known as The Flood of Noah.
I have written five books that in some way are directly related to the Genesis 6 account, and while I refer to it here as the “move” that almost won the game for the Fallen One, as the chapter title above indicates, I won’t go into great detail because I have already explored this in my other books, Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, and my Nephilim Trilogy.
What we see from the text is that a group of fallen angels came down on the earth and had sex with the women resulting in a hybrid called the Nephilim. This passage has created a lot of controversy through the centuries, and I’m not going to belabor the point here, however, I believe that the events recorded almost allowed the Fallen One to declare, Checkmate!
The controversy over this passage and what I believe is a deliberate mistranslation of the passage, has obfuscated the real plan of the Fallen One and blinded the modern church to the perniciousness of that plan. In other words, if we adhere to what is called the Sethite interpretation, this passage would mean that the ungodly line of Cain (remember Cain murdered his brother Abel) married the godly line of Seth, and the offspring of this union were the giants (Nephilim). This position, in my opinion, deliberately dismisses the machinations of the Fallen One’s plan and causes confusion and doubt as to what his end game is and the grave repercussions this end game has regarding mankind.
Another point to consider is this: the rabbis don’t know or adhere to the Sethite view because this interpretation was made in the Fifth century and by Christians not Jews. Thus, the Orthodox rabbis have always interpreted the Genesis passage as the fallen angels of heaven having sex with the women of earth, and they are the people to whom these scriptures belong and from whom they originate!
I believe that the purpose of the incursion of the fallen angels, and what was behind their nefarious plan, was to contaminate the DNA of the human race and by doing so negate the prophecy of the seed of the woman, or the promise of the Messiah that was given shortly after the fall in the garden. (See Chapter 2.) The Fallen One sought to contaminate the bloodline and almost succeeded in doing so, which is why we read in Genesis an enigmatic scripture that singles out a specific aspect of Noah.
(Gen 6:9) This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with Most High God.
The word perfect is translated from the word tamiyn, which means complete, whole, entire, sound. In other words, Noah and the other seven people who were stowed away with all of the animals on the Ark were not contaminated with fallen angel DNA.
This is a macro move by the Fallen One and it almost succeeded. From what is written in the above passage, can we come to grips with the idea that the Fallen One will stop at nothing to accomplish his goal, which is to destroy mankind and eventually set himself up as a god to be worshipped in the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem?
The presence of the fallen angels on earth and the subsequent hybrid offspring, known as the Nephilim, almost wiped out the promise of the coming messiah. Had the plan been successful, the goal being the contamination of the human bloodline, there would have been no messiah possible, thus negating the prophecy, proving the Most High God a liar, and making the Fallen One the winner of the cosmic chess match. In short, the planet would have been his forever and mankind most likely would have ceased to exist.
There are other dynamics that I want to take the time to address in this move between the players. We know from the Biblical account and other texts that from the time the fallen angels descended until the flood occurred may have been more than four hundred years. What is unsettling, at least from a human standpoint, is that the Most High God doesn’t seem to be doing anything about this. From our perspective it would appear, as deists believe, that He is indifferent toward the state of the affairs of men. He is detached and aloof. However, I believe nothing could be further from the truth, but as scripture tells us, “His ways are not our ways.” At some point, perhaps when it looks the darkest, He intervenes. I don’t have an answer as to why He appears to let the full course of evil come to a head before He acts, but he allows it nonetheless. Then He steps in, and when He does everything changes.
I want to again stress the point here that the players are not equally matched. The Most High God created the Fallen One, so he is a created being and although scripture calls him an evil genius, he is no match for the Creator of the Universe!
From our perspective it seems almost cruel to allow the cosmic chess match to continue because, as we will explore later, millions have lost their lives while this match has been played out on earth through the centuries. Yet it will continue until the final moves that were written, a priori (beforehand), in the book of Revelation, come to their fulfillment.
When I speak around the country, I often illustrate how we in America expect our prayers to be answered. I liken it to a drive-through, fast food restaurant. We place our prayer request at window one and then drive to window two and expect our answer to appear in less than three minutes. We are conditioned to get what we want immediately! I’m as guilty as the rest of you and to illustrate this I want to take a moment from the heaviness of the subject and lighten it up a little with a true story.
I live in the Santa Monica Mountains about an hour from the Los Angeles International Airport. It’s a rural, bucolic setting that hasn’t changed in thousands of years. The rolling hills are covered with a unique plant life that is called chaparral. There is no public water here. If you want water you drill for it and put in a well. It is a costly and time-consuming project and there’s no guarantee that you’ll hit water when the drill rig shows up and bores into the earth! And this brings us to my story.
Our old well pretty much dried up and my mother-in-law was gracious enough to lend us the money to drill a new one. (We still haven’t paid her back all of it, much to my embarrassment.) The new well produced what we thought would be an adequate supply of water, until the worst drought in more than one hundred years hit California. At one point in August we trucked in a few thousand gallons to keep things green and growing. I went to the old well and prayed over it and asked the Lord to send an earthquake to create a fissure in the rocks to let the water in. Seriously, that was my prayer! I waited for about a minute and of course nothing happened. A year passed and we were still in drought conditions. One day I looked at the water level in my tank and saw to my dismay that the level was going down, meaning that there was a leak somewhere. I began frantically to check every pipe and connection on our property, but I couldn’t find where the leak was coming from. I then turned on the pump to the old well knowing that we needed to get every drop of water even if it was only a few gallons an hour. Finally, I found the leak. Someone had left the hose in the yard on! I was relieved that I had found the leak and turned it off.
The next morning I checked the level on the tank and found, to my surprise, that we had gotten more water than I had expected. I wondered what was going on. I checked back that evening and found that the wells had pumped almost a full tank! I realized that the old well must have somehow been producing the extra water. It was then that I remembered the prayer, but I still didn’t put the pieces together. A day or two later I remembered that there had been a 4.3 earthquake whose epicenter was six miles southwest of Westlake, a nearby town, which means that it was centered pretty much under my house.
I then remembered that months earlier, while sitting in my chair one evening, I heard an enormous boom that seemed to come from directly beneath me.
It was then that I realized that the earthquake had created a fissure in the rock and that water was now coming into the old well. Coincidence? I think not!
All that to say that our prayers are heard, even before we utter them, but His timing of when He answers, in most cases, is certainly not when we would like! We should realize that the Most High God is in control even when it appears to us that He is not.
We see from this story in Genesis that the stakes are high and that there seems to be a no-holds-barred contest in that anything goes, including wiping out most of the life on the planet. The Fallen One will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. He hates mankind and so if every last person died tomorrow he would rejoice, if it were possible for such a demented entity to rejoice in the first place.
As we will see in later chapters, the Fallen One uses every means at his disposal to accomplish his ends. The intermingling of the fallen angels and the women of earth was, of course, an event that was never supposed to happen. After the fall of man in the garden, the Fallen One continued to attack and attempt to destroy the purity of the human bloodline that we see in Genesis 6.
The Most High God counters this move, but this has dire consequences. Life in the antediluvian world comes to an abrupt end except for eight people. Could the stakes be any higher? I think not, and this is why it is important for us to realize what we, as human beings, are up against.
While I am using the title of The Cosmic Chess Match for this book, it really is a great, ongoing cosmic war that continues to rage in another dimension, but as we see from this chapter, it also spills over onto the earth.
With that in mind, we must realize that we need to put on the whole armor of the Most High God on a daily basis. For as the Guide Book to the Supernatural tells us:
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual [hosts] of wickedness in the heavenly [places].
Can the text be any clearer or more sobering in its message? This battle is real and it engages every one of us at some level regardless whether or not we are willing or unwilling participants.
All are called to “destroy the works of the devil” because we are at war, even if we are pawns by comparison to the principal players.
I believe that we are living in the most unique time in all of history and because of that we will see this war eventually manifest in this dimension. We would do well to heed what I believe may be the most sobering words in the Guidebook that refer to the time we are about to enter: the last days, the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the tribulation period. Jesus warns us that “unless those days were shortened no flesh would survive.” It doesn’t get more severe than that.
