As you can easily determine from the previous set of verses, we are repeatedly told about unclean spirits throughout the New Testament. Where did these beings come from, and why are they referred to as being unclean? In actuality, I already gave you the answer in some of the verses I shared with you in part one. But in case you missed it, let me remind you that in the Book of Jubilees we read that the Watchers -- or the Fallen Angels -- "made the beginning of uncleanness".

That startling statement was made by the Patriarch Noah as he admonished his grandchildren to remain true to the ways of the Lord. Noah pinned the blame for uncleanness entering the world directly on the rebellious Watchers, and he was absolutely right to do so. You may also recall that in the verses I shared with you from the Book of Enoch, in chapter ten, the Lord directs the Archangel Michael in the following manner:

"Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness."

Likewise, in chapter nine of the same Book, we are told that the Fallen Angels "have defiled themselves" by sleeping with human women. In other words, through the action of engaging in illicit sex with the women of Earth, the Fallen Angels became unclean. They defiled themselves. They were no longer pure in God's eyes. Through their sexual lust for the women of Earth, and engaging in sex, they lost their purity. Not only that, but that very same behavior which made the Fallen Angels defiled, also made their giant offspring unclean, and their spirits unclean as well. The uncleanness was passed on to them.

This reminds me of something that the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians chapter seven where he engages in a discussion regarding marriage relationships between Believers and nonbelievers. More specifically, Paul discusses how such relationships affect the spiritual status of their children. Consider the following two verses:

"And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.‭ For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.‭"
1 Corinthians 7:13-14, KJV

So just as a believing spouse sanctifies -- or makes holy -- the children that are born from that relationship, the exact opposite must hold true as well. Thus, because the Fallen Angels because defiled and unclean, their offspring -- that is, the Nephilim giants -- were likewise unclean as well. So that, in my opinion, is why God views the Nephilim giants as being both unclean and evil. If you still doubt that this is so, then consider what Enoch wrote in the fifteenth chapter of his Book, where he plainly tells us that the spirits of the Nephilim are evil spirits, and that "they shall be evil spirits on earth":

"And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling."
Book of Enoch 15:8-10

Can it be any clearer than that? The spirits of the ancient Nephilim giants are unclean, evil spirits which roamed the Earth millennia ago, which roamed the Earth during Jesus' day, and which apparently still roam the Earth today as well. Not only that, but they are very violent spirits which are capable of influencing people to do very unspeakable things. Furthermore, we are told that these evil spirits were NOT born in Heaven, and are NOT of Heaven. God did NOT create them. They were the by-product of Fallen Angel-human sexual relationships. They are unclean, wicked, violent spirits of the Earth which remain bound to the Earth.

Before moving on, allow me to stress an important point here. Some Christians -- and I may have done this myself in the past -- sometimes interchange the words "Fallen Angels" and "Demons". Let us be clear about this. They are not the same thing by any means, according to everything I've just shared with you. The Angels -- whether fallen or not -- were created by God in Heaven. They proceeded from God's own Spirit. Just because they have rebelled against the Lord does not turn them into demons. They are backslidden, rebellious Angels, and they are defiled and unclean. Demons, on the other hand, were never in Heaven, and they were not created by God. They are the result of corrupted human-Angelic DNA, and a merger of human flesh and Angelic spirit, so-to-speak.

To continue then, if my understanding of all of the previous verses is correct, is it possible that down through history, and maybe even in our current time, certain people who have committed unspeakable, gross acts of violence such as serial murders, cannibalism, cruel torture, etc., have also been possessed by these very same ancient spirits of the Nephilim? Taking this thought a step further, can we likewise attribute modern warfare and other acts of destruction to some people unknowingly giving their ear to, being oppressed by, or even possessed by these very same demonic forces of ages past? All of these heinous acts certainly seem to agree with what we understand about the extremely violent nature of the Nephilim giants. Allow me to share some additional quotes with you from the Book of Enoch which again seem to support this position:

"And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them. From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement -- thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgement in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated."
Book of Enoch 15:11-16:1

To reiterate this point, considering that the giant Nephilim were violent creatures, and masters of war, it makes perfect sense in my mind, that in our current time, as well as in times past, their spirits would continue to counsel men in the affairs of war, even if such men are not fully aware of it. Destroy, destroy destroy. That was the Nephilim's goal. If you ask me, that certainly explains the spiritual forces which are in control, and at work, in war rooms around the world. As we have already seen, these ancient spirits just thrived on bloodshed, violence and war. And if they're truly our modern demons as well, they must love watching nations and peoples destroying each other, just like millennia ago. The situation today is just like in the Book of Genesis before the Flood. Let me remind you of those verses again:

"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. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them . . . The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with VIOLENCE.‭ And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.‭ And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with VIOLENCE through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.‭"
Genesis 6:5-7, 11-13, KJV

Returning to the story regarding the man in the country of the Gadarenes who became possessed by the horde of demons known as Legion, allow me to share with you one additional interesting point. In the Gospel story, we are told that this demon-possessed man cut himself with stones. Some of you who are reading this article are probably familiar with the Old Testament story regarding how the Prophet Elijah challenged the four hundred and fifty false prophets of Baal. During the test, as a result of their false god Baal failing to perform as the false prophets had expected, we are told that they became so desperate, that just like the man in the country of the Gadarenes, they too began to cut themselves with knives and lancets, until their blood gushed forth, as we see by the following group of verses:

"And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded."
1 Kings 18:27-29, KJV

If we stop and think about it, this is the exact opposite of what Jesus did for us. In other words, as most Christians know, Jesus shed His Blood for the remission of our sins. But in this story, we are told that the false prophets of Baal in vain shed their blood for their phony god. Of course, it is common knowledge that blood sacrifices have been a part of human rituals for millennia. Even today, it is claimed by some people that both animal and human sacrifices continue to be performed by the practitioners of the dark arts. Of course, I don't know if this is really true or not. But the point remains that whether it is true or not, it is totally contrary to the plan which God devised for the Salvation of the human race. Jesus shed His blood for the remission of our sins. We do not have to shed our blood for Him; unless, of course, God calls us to be a martyr for the Cause of Christ.

But what I will say is the following, and it may trouble you as it troubles me, given the topics we have been discussing in this article. As I sit here typing up this new article, reflecting on the violent, bloody, evil deeds of the ancient Nephilim, I am rather unsettled as my mind ponders some of the things which have come to pass in more recent decades. For example, while people may no longer cut themselves with stones until the blood gushes out, it is disturbing to know that some people do something very similar: they cut their wrists -- such as in a suicide attempt -- or they repeatedly cut some other parts of their body with a razor, due to some anxiety or psychological problem in their lives. But is it possible that it is really the influence of an unclean, evil spirit which has gained control of their lives? Are they in fact oppressed or possessed by an ancient spirit of the Nephilim?

Directly related to this issue are the popular practices -- particularly amongst young people -- of cutting their flesh -- including their faces, breasts, tongues, noses, bellies, ears, etc. -- in order to insert pins, rings and chains; gouging out their ear lobes and stretching them in a very ungodly fashion; or slicing open their flesh in order to insert some object which will give them fake horns, bumps and such. You will find images of some of these strange practices in the "BBB Graphics Library". Now, I might accept one earring being artfully inserted into some fellow's ear -- although I do not wear any jewelry myself -- but some of these people go to the extreme with dozens of pins or rings inserted all over their faces and ears. They look absolutely hideous.

Add to the above all of their strange tattoos, the special contact lenses which give them the appearance of having demon's eyes, the dark goth clothing and the accompanying dark makeup which makes them look dead, plus their strange hairstyles, and I find it all very disturbing. Tragically, I have a few online friends who claim to be Christians, who dress in the very same fashion, and who find nothing wrong with it. I honestly do not understand them. We are supposed to reflect the Lord's light, and not the Devil's darkness. As I have mentioned before, the Apostle Paul admonishes us with the following wise counsel:

"Abstain from all appearance of evil."
1 Thessalonians 5:22, KJV

Now, on the surface, by themselves, some of these practices might seem kind of innocent. People might argue, "Oh, they are just having a little fun." Or "Don't worry. They're just going through a stage in their life right now." Or, "Relax. That's just their way of expressing their rebellion against society." Or, "It's okay. They are just purposely trying to shock people." However, when viewed collectively, all these things send a very negative, dark message, in my view. As responsible Christians, it is our duty to question who or what may really be behind all of these so-called "fads". Is it the demonic forces of the Nephilim? It is almost as if the wicked spirits of the ancient Nephilim are living vicariously through the people who do these weird things to themselves.

Another area of popular culture where we've clearly seen an invasion by the forces of darkness is in the entertainment industry. Whether we are talking about the movie industry, the television industry or the music industry, it is quite simply everywhere. Things which would have never ever been allowed on the airwaves, or in movie theaters when I was a young boy growing up, are now commonplace, and many people accept it, as if there is nothing wrong with it. I am not just talking about the blatant sexuality which is shoved into our faces -- both heterosexual and homosexual -- at every turn, ad nauseam. Song lyrics now use such vulgarity, and such a degree of explicitness when it comes to sexual acts, that I have to wonder how it evades the censors, and is even allowed on the airwaves. And then there is the disrespect for figures in authority. It is mind-boggling. Such people need to be reminded of this verse:

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
Ephesians 4:29, KJV

To make matters worse, whether it is simply a gimmick to generate publicity, or controversy, or because they really mean it, a growing number of artists are publicly claiming their allegiance to Satan, and telling us that they sold their soul to the Devil in order to become rich and famous. We are all familiar with the two-finger, "horned" salute which is used by everyone from politicians to the kid on the street who has no idea what it means. I have been told by some of my online Christian friends that some of the popular artists who make these claims are not just joking around. They are dead serious about worshipping Satan. I honestly don't know what to think about it. But what I do know is this:

"Neither give place to the devil."
Ephesians 4:27, KJV

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
James 4:7, KJV

On the more serious side, there have also been reports of people drinking animal, or even human, blood, because they believe that they derive some benefit from doing it. This is directly tied to the modern fascination with vampirism. As many of you will already know, vampirism has been glorified as a "cool" thing in both novels and movies, and the goth look is a direct knock-off of that. Again, this is a wicked thing. You may recall that in the Book of Enoch we were also told that the Nephilim began to "devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood". As I explain in other articles, this is clearly prohibited throughout the pages of the Bible. For example, consider the following verses and be warned:

"But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man."
Genesis 9:4-5, KJV

"And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off."
Leviticus 17:10-14, KJV

"Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times."
Leviticus 19:26, KJV

"Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh."
Deuteronomy 12:23, KJV

"And the people flew upon the spoil, and took sheep, and oxen, and calves, and slew them on the ground: and the people did eat them with the blood. Then they told Saul, saying, Behold, the people sin against the LORD, in that they eat with the blood. And he said, Ye have transgressed: roll a great stone unto me this day."
1 Samuel 14:32-33, KJV

"Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood . . . For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well."
Acts 15:19-20, 28-29, KJV

"As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication."
Acts 21:25, KJV

Equally as bad, indeed if not worse, are the alarming stories which have come to light in recent decades regarding modern cannibals. As many of you will know, we are not just talking about some lost tribe in the Amazon or in Indonesia who have an appetite for their fellow human beings. It might interest you to know that as of this date, the Wikipedia website lists twenty-one notorious cannibals in the United States alone, such as the infamous Jeffrey Dahmer -- a.k.a. the "Milwaukee Monster" -- who raped, murdered, dismembered, cannibalized, and performed necrophilia on, seventeen men and boys from 1978 to 1991. Tragically, there have been other such sickos since him.

So putting together everything that I have shared with you in the previous paragraphs, as Christians who understand ancient Biblical history, how can we arrive at any other conclusion than the fact that some very dark, very ancient, very evil, powerful force is at work in our modern world? Whatever this force is, it is increasingly manifesting itself by way of the things which I have just described for you. Let me give you a quick recap of what they are:

• Unending wars, skirmishes and civil unrest.

• Decade after decade of violence and bloodshed of every kind.

• Sexual perversions of every kind which become more blatant with each passing year.

• Genetic modification of plants, animals and humans, such as GMOs, stem cell research, somatic cell nuclear transfer, gender reassignment surgery, etc.

• People cutting, mutilating and disfiguring their flesh.

• People glorifying Satan in their songs, talk, dress and general lifestyle.

• Total defiance against God's Laws.

• Serial murders.

• Human and animal sacrifices, including abortion by the millions every single year.

• Cannibalism.

• Drinking of blood.

In fact, if you go back and re-read the quotes that I shared with you from the Book of Enoch, you will see that I have not even included everything. In addition to the previous list of the sins of our modern society, Enoch also names the following:

• Astrology
• Charms and enchantments
• Creation of makeup
• Creation of jewelry
• Creation of weapons of war

So tell me; are you starting to get the picture yet? Stated plainly, every single thing that the Fallen Angels and the Nephilim were guilty of doing millennia ago, which resulted in God's Wrath being poured upon the Earth, we are now doing today as well. In fact, we are committing the same sins at an increasing rate. Now are you starting to see the connection with the distant past? Are all of the aforementioned things symptomatic of an invisible incursion by the wicked, violent spirits of the ancient Nephilim giants? Are they here amongst us, and we don't even realize it? Are they influencing our thoughts and actions? If the Nephilim were not spared from God's Wrath, how can we possibly expect anything different to eventually happen to us as well, unless we all repent, and do it quickly while there is still time?

In conclusion, it is my hope that as a God-fearing and Bible- believing Christian, the information I have shared with you in this article will motivate you to strive even harder to live a clean and holy life which is acceptable and pleasing to the Lord. For in so doing, your spiritual light will shine even brighter in this crooked and perverse world. Consider the following verses:

"That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;"
Philippians 2:15, KJV

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16, KJV

With these profound thoughts I will bring this article to a close. I trust that you have enjoyed it, learned something from it, and I pray that it has been a blessing in your life.
