The Fate of the Nephilim
is the Counter to The Da Vinci Code Claim

When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:1-8  NIV

The popular book The Da Vinci Code is a novel that mixes hidden truths with fabricated ones. Despite the fact that it is a novel, it seems that some are taking it as history. Perhaps because it has elements of history, may make it difficult to not have it influence one’s view of history and what is true. When it comes to the Bible, this is especially true unless one knows the Bible well. If you find in your travels that the church has misrepresented some of what the Bible says, then where do you draw the line? Well, I believe truth comes out in many ways. Let’s consider one of the Code’s primary claims, namely that Jesus had a child. Despite that Isaiah prophesied the Messiah would not have children (Isaiah 53:8), let us consider a deeper motivation.

Given that Jesus is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, then Jesus had full knowledge and understanding of the decision to send the flood to destroy all humanity except Noah and his family. The decision was made due to the corruption of mankind. Part of the problem was the influence of the Nephilim, which means “fallen ones”. The Nephilim were hybrids, the result of the sons of God having children with the daughters of men (Gen 6:4). These children became giants and men of renown who were admired by humans but judged as sinners by God (see NIV footnote). If Jesus and God the Father considered it a mistake to allow the hybrids to expand on earth to the point of having to destroy them, then Jesus would certainly not be involved with allowing hybrids to be born into the earth again.

The book The Da Vinci Code makes the claim that Mary Magdalene was pregnant with Jesus’ child who became the beginning of a royal bloodline. Any child coming from this union would be a Nephilim, that is, the product of a son of God with a human woman. Since Jesus knew full well the impact and cost in lives of sending the flood to destroy, in part, the Nephilim, then it would seem that he would be highly motivated to not create the same mistake by leaving children. So I believe the occurrence of the biblical flood is testimony that the Messiah would not allow children to come from his time on earth as Jesus.

“So Dark The Con of Man”

Who’s conning whom?

If you want to know the real difference between

what the Bible says
what the church has taught

then study this web site and read your Bible.

Forget The Da Vinci Code’s attempt to undermine the credibility of Jesus the Christ.
Jesus’ true credibility is his passionate love for us despite how we treated him.
This truth was portrayed so clearly in Mel Gibson’s brilliant Passion of the Christ.

The true con of man is the pre-tribulation rapture.

Will the “sons of god” who created the Nephilim, the “fallen ones”, return? (Mt 24:37)
What form did they take and how did they appear to us?
Will they appear as gods to those who don’t know the difference?
Will they offer a ride and a way off the planet before the tribulation?
If so, it will not be to meet the Lord!
If you are expecting the wrong thing, will you know the difference?

The Bible teaches a post-tribulation rapture, which makes it a different ball game.
The quick verses are: Isaiah 26:20, Matthew 24, Rev 19:6-9; 22:16 and 2 Thess 2 which amplifies Daniel 12.
This topic is not a matter of verses. It depends on your theology and knowledge of the Bible.
You can't support a pre-trib view of 2 Thess 2 if you know Joel and the promise of the latter rain.

The time of tribulation is a period for refining and testing our character - a test setup by God:
Who will choose to follow God's way and God's law
even during the time of the Antichrist and his sanctioned lawlessness?
How will you handle your anger - does it control you? Can you love those you don't understand?
God is watching - everything is recorded and will be reviewed.
You have the power of free will. Choose wisely. The future of your soul depends on it.

To see and understand the post-trib view, study this web site starting with the feast days
and read your Bible!
