If you were to look at the genealogical line of Ham you will notice factions that occurred where Flesh had been corrupted and produced Nephilim again. The most obvious is Ham. Ham produced the Cushites, the Mizraim (Egyptians), Phut and Canaan.
First of all, You have Mizraim or Egypt. The rulers of the Egyptian people believed that they were descended of the gods. In today's society we laugh this off as just human superstition, yet as biblical Christians we believe God can manifest as a human child with no father, and angels can come down in the flesh in human form, and for the most part we take Genesis 6 as verbatim proof that angels had human-hybrid offspring called Nephilim. Is it such a stretch to believe that the original Egyptian ruling class post flood had Nephilim DNA?
That being said, let me show you the biblical evidence that the father of the Egyptian people produced Nephilim. Let me refer you first to Genesis 10. "Egypt was the father of
the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites, Pathrusites, Kasluhites (from whom the Philistines came) and Caphtorites." First, notice that Moses took special effort to point out that the descendants of the Philistines were of the line of Egypt. Through this subtle reference that Moses made we can deduce that the descendants of Egypt were Nephilim because of Goliath the Philistine.
"Now the Philistines gathered their forces for war and assembled at Sokoh in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Sokoh and Azekah. Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped in the Valley of Elah and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them.
A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span (9'9"). He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels; on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him. Goliath stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, “Why do you come out and line up for battle? Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul?" -1 Samuel 17:1-8
We also see in the bible that Ham's son Cush produced Nephilim as well. It specifically names Nimrod as a son of Cush that was a mighty man. That word used for mighty man is Gibbor, It is the same word used to describe the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4 when Moses says, " There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of 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."
Since we know that the Philistines had giants in their line and they are descendants of Egypt (Mizraim) then we can look at the Oldest mummies of the Egyptians and get a sense of what their earliest ancestors may have looked like. Firstly, the word Mizraim is plural. Mizra is the root word of the Hebraic word mazor, meaning to bind or bandages. I believe that this is a prophetic name for the nation because they 'bandaged' or bound their dead in linen wraps.
One thing that evidenced as a similar trait among the Egyptians is that many of their depictions of the gods and the pharaohs is that they have long heads or are wearing hats that make it look like their heads are elongated. The reason they did this was because it was representative or in homage to the original Progenitors of Egypt. If you were to google, 'Earliest Egyptian Mummies' and dig and look at the oldest mummies found you would see that they had two traits; Red Hair and elongated skulls. Some of these Egyptian Mummies are housed in the british Museum in England.
As far as elongated skulls go you can look at the hieroglyphs of the ancient egyptians and note Pharaoh Khufu's statues and burial mask (his mummy somehow disappeared...). He is noted as having an extremely elongated head.
The reason I have made mention of this is because of Ham's son Phut, whose descendants are not mentioned in the bible. I have speculated that Phut and Mizraim may have been twins because mizraim is plural in the Hebraic language. This indicates that there was more than one. None of the other Children were given Plural names. At the Very least they must have shared some common similarities.
The Egyptians refer to punthites in some of their ancient annuls and many believe that they lived in the area now known as Somalia. However, Josephus and Pliny the elder both place Phut as being in the land of Libya and west. Now we're about to get to a little crazy (as if this whole thing hasn't been crazy enough).
The Great Divide
Let's take a jump back to Genesis 10:25, "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan." The hebrew word divided is nipalag. This is a combination of two words, Ni and palag. Ni means simply, I, in Hebrew. Palag means to split, divide, or cleave. This word is unique in the fact that refers to something being torn down the middle. In Genesis 11:8 we see that God scattered the people abroad and confused their language.
It's commonly believed that at this time God just separated the people because he didn't want them all meeting together in one place. You see that the Canaanites, mainly nimrod and his cohort, were worried that the people would spread all across the land and be divided. I say Nimrod because the Tower of Babel was built in the plain of Shinar which was part of his kingdom.
In 1 Chronicles and Genesis 10 we see in the accounting of the bloodlines of Noah's sons, that the earth was divided or split apart. God was telling Moses that he divided, or cleaved the earth by splitting it. I believe that this split was God separating the nations. Moses specifically pointed out in Genesis 10:18 that three Tribes of canaanite descent were scattered all over the face of the earth (abroad).
If you look at maps of what the primal continent, Pangea, as we know it today, looks like, you will notice that South America and North America are west of Europe and Africa. I believe that these canaanite tribes were dispersed among North America and South America. Here's why I say that.
Just a few paragraph's before I mentioned that the descendants of Put were noted as being west of Egypt and I proposed that they were most likely twin brothers? The Egyptians had several red-haired mummies and several mummies that has elongated skulls. Recently, several skulls of mummies with elongated skulls, six fingers and toes, Gigantic stature, and red hair were found in Peru. In several parts of North America including New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, California, Arkansas and other states, skeletons averaging around 9-14 feet or taller inside of colossal burial mounds. Some of these skeleton's legs alone were 5' tall by themselves.
The Egyptian Mummies had red hair, blonde hair, and some had black hair. What is interesting is that the mummies found in Peru had red hair as well. According to modern theory of evolution that shouldn't exist because the Europeans didn't come to the Americas until the 1400's (that can be proven anyway). I believe that the canaanites tribes that were spread abroad were the progenitors of these south American and North American giants.
You may be thinking, 'Well that's crazy! All three of those tribes were siblings. That means they would have been inbreeding all across the land.' That's correct. The scientific evidence and theory of the extinction of these giant races in the Americas is that they inbred themselves so much that they died off. Incest is a trait that is not uncommon to the canaanite people.
In Egypt it was very common for Direct family members such as Brother and sister or mother and son to marry. The Egyptians believed that this preserved the blood of the 'gods' that was in their lineage. This is why you see examples of rulers like king tut who had several genetic deformities that resulted from direct incestual childbearing.
Several Native American and South American tribes such as the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Pauti, Manta, and Natchez indians tell of a race of white giants that cannibalized them, were 10' tall or more, built strongholds and giant cities, and had superior mining skills inhabited the land when they migrated west and the Natives fought and killed them at every chance they could. The Pueblo's have cave paintings and traditions of their people coexisting with them that had six fingers and toes.
Now that we have established that the Nephilim covered the entire world, let's talk about why they would be considered demons? Let's establish one major thing on which I will base the premise of this next statement; my hypothesis if you will. All demons are the disembodied spirits of the ancestors of the giants; Nephilim, Reaphim, or any other name describing these hybrid humans.
The word Repahim (repaim) derives from the root word rapha. We commonly know this word to mean heal and it is commonly associated with God's title, Jehovah Rapha. However, when used to described a race of Nephilim it means a giant. If you do a word study on the word rapha you will also find that this word is used throughout the old testament to mean shades or spirits.
Again you see the same word used to describe the inhabitants in the land of the dead in proverbs 2:18, "for her house sinks down to death and her ways to the land of the departed spirits." The word used for departed spirits is, you guessed it, Rephaim (repaim).
Let's take a look at several verses from Isaiah 14, “Sheol from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead (repaim) for you, all the chief ones of the earth; It has raised up from their throne all the kings of the nations saying, “You too have become weak, as we are; you have become like us!” ." If you were to read this verse in Hebrew it would say, 'Sheol below quivers for you. They come against you at your arrival. It stirs up all the Rephaim; all the chiefs stand up from their thrones on the earth, all the kings of the nations and they all testify to you saying, "You have become weak just like we are!"
There's something that you may want to consider for a moment. The spirits of the Rephaim, what we call demons today, are completely aware that they are weak. Colossians 2:15 tells us that Jesus completely defeated those very rulers, the deceased spirits of the Rephaim, that in Isaiah 14 admitted that they were weak. Philippians 4:13 says, " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." The enemy is weak, stripped of their power, disarmed, and completely defeated whereas we, disciples of Christ, are strong, equipped, empowered and completely victorious in Christ Jesus!
I believe that's a sufficient amount of scripture to show that the rephaim are the spirits of the dead. Now I will show you some extra scripture to drive the point home that these spirits are the demons and not fallen angels.
