What did the Church Fathers say about the "giants" in Genesis?How does this possibly connect with the modern lie of aliens?Was genetic engineering referenced in Genesis, and will it return in the times of the anti-christ?
Hollywood, which is fully deep-state controlled, has been pumping alien propaganda for decades. The music industry (also luciferian) has also been alluding to the fact of demon-animal-human hybrids in many of their songs and music videos. I believe the 'aliens from another planet' story is completely false, but is being used to explain how and why demon-animal-human hybrids will once again appear on the earth.
I say "again appear" because the story of Noah, confirmed by the majority of the Church Fathers up until the time of St Augustine (so, from 70 AD -400s) believed and wrote that one of the reasons that God destroyed the earth by flood was due to demons who had children by women, and which children became the "giants" spoken of in Genesis and who also existed post-flood, the giant nations who the Isrealites had to conquer (i.e. David vs Goliath). It is argued that Satan knew that Christ would be born of the line of David, so he corrupted angels to leave heaven (which God obviously allowed) and to seduce and "marry" women on earth, in order to corrupt the genetic line of humanity and David's lineage, which would make the arrival of Christ impossible.Genesis 6, 1-4
6 And after that men began to be multiplied upon the earth, and daughters were born to them, The sons of God seeing the daughters of men, that they were fair, took to themselves wives of all which they chose. And God said: My spirit shall not remain in man for ever, because he is flesh, and his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.Flavius Joseph“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.”

It will for the present be enough, however, that some account is given of their work. Their great business is the ruin of mankind. So, from the very first, spiritual wickedness sought our destruction. They inflict, accordingly, upon our bodies diseases and other grievous calamities, while by violent assaults they hurry the soul into sudden and extraordinary excesses.”

.Lucius Lactantius “When, therefore, the number of men had begun to increase, God in His forethought, lest the devil, to whom from the beginning He had given power over the earth, should by his subtlety either corrupt or destroy men, as he had done at first, sent angels for the protection and improvement of the human race; and inasmuch as He had given these a free will, He enjoined them above all things not to defile themselves with contamination from the earth, and thus lose the dignity of their heavenly nature. He plainly prohibited them from doing that which He knew that they would do, that they might entertain no hope of pardon. Therefore, while they abode among men, that most deceitful ruler of the earth, by his very association, gradually enticed them to vices, and polluted them by intercourse with women.”
– Lactantius, Divine Institutes, Book II, Ch. XV.St Ambrose“The giants (Nephilim) were on the Earth in those days.” The author of the divine Scripture does not mean that those giants must be considered, according to the tradition of poets, as sons of the earth but asserts that those whom he defines with such a name because of the extraordinary size of their body were generated by angels and women.”

; 18."For unlawful unions occurred on earth, as angels united themselves with daughters of men, who bore them sons who, because of their exaggerated height, were called giants (cf. Gen 6.2-4). The angels then gave their wives, as gifts, wicked teachings, for they taught them the powers of roots and herbs, of dyeing and cosmetics, and the discovery of precious material, love-potions, hatreds, loves, infatuations, seductions, bonds of witchcraft, and all kinds of divination and idolatry hateful to God. When these entered the world, the things of wickedness overabounded, while those of righteousness decreased, until judgement came upon the world from God […]"

But the angels transgressed this appointment. and were captivated by love of women.”
– Second Apology; Chapter V
The book of enoch (which is not canonical, but was almost considered as such) also talks about this genetic corruption and how the the flood killed the human-demon "children" of the bad angels. But the flood only killed the human form, the spirits lived on and this explains the folklore tales, strange events and weird happenings which occur in the woods and deep forests - because these evil spirits still live on earth, and they try to possess animals or humans so they can have a body again. They will roam the earth until the end of the world, when they will go to hell.
The bad angels who left heaven and started all this mess in Genesis have been chained in the bowels of the earth until the end of the world, when they will be sent to hell for eternity. Enoch describes that these bad angels, before the flood, made men to worship them because they were knowledgeable of all things on earth - they taught men how to make weapons from metal, how to polish and find precious stones for jewelry, how to talk to the dead and other forms of sorcery, how to use herbs and other plants for potions and healing, etc, etc.
St Jude mentions those angels who forsook their angelic abode and came to earth:6 And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day.7 As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the neighbouring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to fornication, and going after other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 1 6:7)
St Peter (Peter 2, 4:7) also refers to the angels who sinned:For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell, unto torments, to be reserved unto judgment: 5 And spared not the original world, but preserved Noe, the eighth person, the preacher of justice, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. 6 And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly. 7 And delivered just Lot, oppressed by the injustice and lewd conversation of the wicked.
The apocalypse makes mention of the "key to the bottomless pit" being opened the devils being let loose to roam the earth. I believe this will happen during the 3 days of darkness because other prophecies have mentioned the demons being let loose and inflicting God's justice on those men who worshipped satan. (Oh, the irony! Those that worshipped evil will be destroyed by the same evil. But I digress...) There's evidence that elite scientists at CERN have been tunneling towards the center of the earth in order to create an opening to hell and "another dimension". The town in France where CERN is partially situated is called “Saint-Genus-Poilly.” The name Pouilly comes from the Latin “Appolliacum” and it is believed that in Roman times a temple existed in honor of Apollo, and the people who lived there believed that it is a gateway to the underworld. It is interesting to note that CERN is built on the same spot.https://www.rt.com/op-ed/313922-cern-collider-hadron-higgs/9 And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: (Apocalypse 9, 1:3)And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them 11 A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans, (Apocalypse 9, 10:11)
There's also a lot of speculation that Antarctica is one place where the elites go to talk with these demons who are chained. Why else to people like Pope Francis, John Kerry, Obama, the head Patriarch of the Orthodox, etc go to Antarctica? (And they go secretly) What are they doing there? Enoch's description of the place on earth where he went to see the bottomless pit has many similarities with Antarctica.
So how is this all connected? Well, many believe that the times of Noah were filled with genetic mutations and manipulations because Lucifer wanted to destroy humanity and also because he wants to re-created demonic manifestations in humans. When Christ referred to the evil days of Noah, it is easy to think that He just meant the weight of sin at the time, but could he also refer to the genetic engineering that our technology has made possible? And if so, then would genetic mutations and the re-emergence of the "giants" not be a sign of the times of the anti-christ, since these things happened in the days of Noe, and therefore, would also happen before Christ comes again?37 And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(Matt 24, V37)***Disclaimer***
The phrase in Genesis says that the "sons of God" sinned with women. Many Church Fathers interpret the "sons of god" to mean angels, as the quotes above show (and there are more quotes). Yet, some other Fathers say that "sons of God" mean the "sons of shem", who was considered the most orthodox of Noe's sons, in contrast to the sons of Cain, who were pagans. It seems that this passage/interpretation has not been decided by the Church, so my thought process above could be wrong. Take it with a grain of salt.

It seems that many of the early Church Fathers considered the Book of Enoch to be part of Scripture, so they interpreted "sons of God" to mean angels as Enoch clearly describes. As we get to the 300s, more (but not all) Church Fathers were against the angel theory and interpreted it as meaning 'sons of shem'. It has been theorized that the Book of Enoch was trusted in the early days of the Church (as it was trusted by the jews for centuries) but came to be mistrusted due to many faulty translations that arose and this was the reason it was not included as part of Scripture. However, Jude does quote the book of Enoch in Scripture, so there is much evidence that, at some point, the book was considered to be inspired.14 Now of these Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying: Behold, the Lord cometh with thousands of his saints, 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to reprove all the ungodly for all the works of their ungodliness, whereby they have done ungodly, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against God.
(Jude 1, 14:15)Conclusion
It is inconclusive, based on scripture and the Church fathers, if "sons of men" means angels or just holy men who were corrupted by sin. What is conclusive is that the "giants" spoken of in Genesis, existed both before and after the flood. And in all cases, these giants were evil and fought those who were keeping the laws of God. It is also logical that these giants were genetic anomolies, since had their size been normal, there wouldn't be a need to mention them as special. Were these giants a genetic corruption, as in a PURPOSEFUL genetic corruption? Were these giants of demonic, astrological descent, having been conceived through demonic means?Genesis 6, 12:1312
And when God had seen that the earth was corrupted (for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth,) 13
He said to Noe: The end of all flesh is come before me, the earth is filled with iniquity through them, and I will destroy them with the earth.
Haydock Bible Commentary: "Its way", being abandoned to the most shameful and unnatural sins. (Liranus)
Genetic testing/genetic hybrids certainly fall under the category of shameful and unnatural sins. Angels bearing children by women also does.
My main question is to wonder if these giants, or human-demonic hybrids, will return during the period of the anti-christ (i.e. maybe in our present times)? Will lucifer's followers try to explain these hybrids as "aliens" from another planet, instead of the demons they are? If not, then why do the elites push the idea of aliens? Why do they push the idea of human hybrids in music (this is relatively new)? With the advent of genetic engineering (and who knows the heights which such technology has reached except the elites?), with the advent of cloning, with the advent of "artificial intelligence" (could A.I. just be a cover story for demons that run computer systems?), could the devil be preparing society for some sort of demonic manifestation on a large scale? Only God knows what He will allow, but there is much evidence to support the idea that satan WANTS to do much of the above.
Has anyone else looked into this topic?
