ATTENTION Weary pastor, who lays awake feverishly praying, “Lord, please help my church members become enthusiastic disciples of Your Mission for this church.” If when preaching on Genesis 6 you zip past the Nephilim Definition on the way to talk about Noah, then a whole supernatural study is missed. It proves God later did NOT task Joshua to murder innocent children in the ban on the Giant clans. Unveiling the truth of God’s loving grace in such a fantastical part of Redemptive history will get their attention!
The mystery surrounding these mighty men of old that were men of renown made me think long and hard. Who were they?
Their ancestry seemed like it was stated in such a way as to point to the unusual nature of the relationship between strange parentage. I would think twice about “match making” my daughters of generalized daughters of men, and the term Sons of God, which applies only to direct creations of God alone.
It is understandable that most pastors gloss over this curious passage. As a pastor, you are busy!
I am grateful for the fact that you are pre-occupied with the work of the ministry. You are spinning in circles trying to meet the demands of a full congregation’s care needs. And, sadly are aggravated with members that seem to take without any thought to encourage you-And, lift a finger to ease the pressures you feel.
Statistics in the Ministry:
“More than 70% of pastors do not have a close friend with whom they can openly share their struggles. The dominant cause for pastors to leave the pastoral ministry is burnout. Number two is moral failure. These are alarming statistics. And there are many more.”

However, I have a seemingly unrelated question for you about a precious gift that God preserved over the millennia for you, a “Good Shepherd Pastor!” It has a lot to do with Bible Prophecy. But, if you abide with me for a short while with this warm letter of encouragement; I promise you unraveling the Nephilim Definition will be worth your time!
“Have you ever heard of HBO’s Game of Thrones?” I have heard a lot about it! Personally, I refuse to feed my soul such ‘Occulted/ Pagan garbage.” But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t studied the series as a concerned Christian. There is a reason why many Christians are tuning in and even paying HBO to watch the show.
I have read a lot about the intrigues of this medievalesque political drama. I see it as a mockery on the narrative sections of the Bible. It masterfully “spins a yarn.” It weaves Biblical undertones, and supernatural overtones in with its tales of conspiracy, underhanded machinations, and dirty tricks set in candle lit castles.
We both know that Satan can’t create anything of his own. Satan must counterfeit and make a mockery of the Bible in order to replace our hunger for the mystique of the stories that contain God’s plan of redemption, especially stories that reveal the truth of the Nephilim.
And, Satan uses the same names over again of those pagan gods that led Israel astray so often. Because of Satan and his minion’s arrogance to make a name for themselves you will see traces of the old paganism mixed with the new such as with one of the old kings named Baelor, http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Baelor_Targaryen.
The Old Testament tells us many times that the Israelites worshipped “Baal” and Ashura. Later, I will bring to light some of the dark satanic roots of this wildly popular fantasy series.
Well, my first topic for your attention is that John Piper just sounded off on “The Game of Thrones” series. What he avowed could be a game changer to revitalize your flock’s gusto for your sermons.
So, what does HBO’s Game of Thrones have that most churches lack? Don’t say nudity. Gratuitous nudity is the topic John Piper was addressing with astute biblical fervor; he says that Christians who watch the show are “re-crucifying Christ.”
The Controversy concerning the fact that many Christians watch the show says something about Christians that is important.
Largely, Christians really are passionate paying members that are “All in.”
Discover with Pastor Planet at Contend Faith ministries How to be the pastor that preaches in alignment with this element of fascination for the show that many Christians sadly are passionate about. Discover how to be the pastor with a ten minute longer sermon, because of gaining an enthusiastic, and engaged “Amen section.”
Every pastor desires to have an active “Amen section” that just won’t quit. Discern how with my book upcoming book: “3 Quality Church Father Strategies to Transform Your Church” that is due to be released in a matter of a few weeks so you too can captivate all of their fascination.
These Christians have an affinity to the human story of characters in an ancient setting, where the righteous struggle to live righteously, while the plea to God of the Psalmist rings in their hearts to see the evil rulers prosper in their intrigue, and immoral scheming. They can’t wait to see how the wicked will fall into their own trap amidst a fantastical setting.
It is human nature to need God to remind us of Psalm 37. Without the full gospel truth they do Fret because of evildoers; even thou they are not envious against the workers of iniquity.
One word describes this inner desire for justice: “Comeuppance.” For those hungry for this, we call it “just deserts.” Christians are willing to watch an abominable and pagan to the core television fantasy series in order to get their fill. Be assured, the Bible already has the best of those “Comeuppance” elements woven throughout the Bible, and it is a blessing instead of a curse that we are supposed to receive.
The Bible is replete with just as juicy Gothic detailed accounts that perfectly match Psalm 37:12-20 that put to shame the fictional fantasy of Game of Thrones. But first we will dig into the linguistic connection between the Nephilim and Satan’s long war against God in the seed war:
The Nephilim Definition includes the Bible Conspiracy connection with Psalm 83 and the Hebrew conspiracy word in the psalms. That word is “consulted.”
“All of the Biblical evidence for the “Nephilim definition” is found in this hermeneutic exegesis starting in this blog post.”
Check out part two of this series that will help you win back the enthusiasm your congregation has for intriguing, and mysterious drama found truthfully in the Bible’s redemptive history here
