Q. The subject of the Nephilim is very interesting to say the least. I have a big hunch the Anti Christ will be a Nephilim. What do you think of this? I love your site! It is a big blessing to me. Keep up the great work you’re doing!!
A. In the King James Version, Daniel 2:43 reads, “And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.”
Miry clay apparently refers to pottery made of the recycled shards or broken pieces of different kinds of pottery ground into dust again and mixed with water to make a clay like substance. It was very brittle and easily broken apart. In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream it’s meant to symbolize the difficulty the end times Empire represented by the ten toes will have in staying together.
But then verse 43 says “they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men” Who is they? Is Daniel telling us that some non-human beings will attempt to join up with humans, or even mix themselves into the human gene pool? And if so, that they’ll have a hard time remaining united? We can’t tell, but some scholars say we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the return of the Nephilim is prophesied by this verse.
You can certainly see a fulfillment of this prophecy in the trouble the EU is having in maintaining itself as a cohesive body, but there may be more to it. The anti-Christ may at least control forces that are either alien or partly so, and some say he could be part alien himself. In considering this we have to remember that his number is the number of a man, so he has to at least be perceived as human. Something to think about.
