All right, we are in the book of Numbers. And we’re going to finish up chapter 13. And, and then and then Lord willing start chapter 14. But we kind of passed over a portion in Numbers chapter 13 that I wanted to go back to and talk about a little bit. And there’s a very strange piece of scripture in here that goes back to another strange piece of scripture in Genesis and I just wanted to talk about it and go over it. If If anybody’s interested in in my notes, I have all my notes here. I can airdrop it to you or texted to you or email it to you, if you’re so if you’re so inclined to take them but if you turn with me in Numbers, chapter 13 verse 33, and remember, the 12 spies were sent out to spy out the land. And one of the things that we talked about was, that wasn’t God’s plan. That was the people’s plan. God said go in and inhabit the land, right? Go take the land. It was the people that said, Well, we should probably send some spies in there first to see what we’re dealing with. And that’s a bad idea. Because it’s like Peter, when he said to Jesus, when Jesus came walking out to the disciples on the water, and they’re in the boat, and Peter said, Lord, if it’s really you, then call me to come to you and to walk on the water. And Jesus said, Come on out. And Peter cut out sort of walking on the water to Jesus. But then he stopped to think about the fact that he was walking on water. And it’s impossible. And it says that he looked around and he saw the waves in the storm and the scene you started to see the circumstances and he started to realize to himself, this is impossible. This is an impossible ridiculous situation. I can’t be doing that. It’s like well dummy, you are doing That, because why? Because Jesus said, whatever Jesus says, I want you to do this, he then gives you the ability to do these things, right? That’s the whole purpose of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus said, you’ll be endowed with power from on high, the Greek word there is due to miss, which is where we get our word dynamite from what the word literally means the ability to do, the ability to do the ability to do what live this Christian life, that’s just as well beyond you as walking on water, right to walk in his steps to be like Jesus. And yet when God calls us to do something, we have but to will to obey. Pastor Chuck Smith preached an awesome message one of my all time favorites are Pastor Chuck, about when Jesus healed the man with the withered hand. And when Jesus spoke to the man and he said, I want you to stretch out your hand all of the power and all of the ability that was necessary for that man to reach out his hand was there to stretch out his hand was there the man simply had To will to obey, he had to will to obey the commandment of God. If God commands you, then he’s going to give the ability to you to do the thing that he’s commanded you to do. And so when God said, I want you to go in and inhabit the land, there wasn’t supposed to be any spies. Well, let’s go. Let’s see what we’re dealing with. So of course, they send in the 12 spies, and as you guys know, they come back and 10 of the spies bring a bad report, only Joshua and Caleb, bring a good report. And their entire good report, they don’t question and they don’t deny. And they don’t say that any of the parts of the bad reporter wrong or false or a lie. They don’t deny any of the difficulty. They don’t deny any of the seemingly impossible tasks that lay before the children of Israel to inhabit the land. They simply say, God has told us to go take it. It’s a good land. And as we’re going to get into in chapter 14, I love it. It’s one of my favorite verses. In the Bible, I got a lot of them, right. They are bred for us. They’re bred giants book bred for us, you know, you gotta love that kind of heart that kind of grit. But it was based on faith wasn’t based on their own ability. It wasn’t based on what great warriors they were. It was based on their own ability. But in verse 33, of numbers 13, we have this strange verse where the 10 spies bring the bad report says, There we saw the giants, the descendants of Anik came and it says in parentheses, the descendants of Anna came from the giants. And we were like grasshoppers in our own site. And so we were in their site. Now, you guys have we read and preach out of the New King James Version. If you have the NIV version, the newly inspired version, right? That was a Dagon and IV people. Were not King James people here. And one of the things I love is when Bible scholars get Get kind of stuff shoved in their face, you know? And people say, well, it has to be this way or it has to be that way. The Nivea version has the correct translation, and it doesn’t say giants. It says Nephilim It doesn’t say giants it says naphthalene. Now, turn with me if you will, in your Bibles to Genesis chapter six. Genesis chapter six and verse four.

Genesis chapter six and verse four. Now this is proceeding The, the flood, okay, where Noah has has is telling God is telling Noah to build this Ark, because he’s gonna he’s gonna send a flood upon the earth to destroy mankind, because the Bible specifically says that every intention of their heart was only evil all the time. Wow. I mean, I felt like that sometimes about myself. Right? Like almost every intention to my heart today is a fleeting evil all the time. But God actually says that every intention of their of their heart was only evil all the time. It had grown so wicked and so perverse that God sent judgment upon the planet. Now in Genesis chapter six, verse four, we have this strange verse that says, the Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans, and had children by them. And they were heroes. They were the heroes of old men of renowned. Now, do you know who wrote the book of Genesis? Anybody? Moses, Moses wrote the book of Genesis. So Moses was the one that writes these words, the correct translation of Numbers, chapter 13, verse 33, is this. There we saw the Nephilim. The descendants of attic came from the Nephilim and we were like grasshopper. Our own site and so we were in their site. And now Joshua and Caleb, no one else disputes that. When they bring this report, now they’re bringing this report to put fear into the heart of the people. And I want you to remember, well look at Numbers, chapter 14, verse one. Okay, the last verse we read is, Hey, guys, guess what the descendants of the Nephilim are there? 14 one. So all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night. And as you know, we’re going to get into what they were afraid. And they said, We can’t take this land, we’re going to be destroyed, we’re going to be killed. Well, my opinion is, is that one of the main things that they were so afraid of, was the existence in the land of these things of these creatures of these people, whatever you want to call them, these descendants of the Nephilim we’re going to get into on the king of vishawn as we go on in the scriptures talks about him having 13 fingers and toes in his bed. Was 10 feet long and he was a giant. When we get to the exploits of David he fights Goliath. Goliath was a giant. And Goliath wasn’t like an eight foot tall minute bowl. You know what I’m saying? Where you could knock him over? He was like an eight foot tall Mike Tyson. Okay, a beast of a man. The entire army of Israel was shaken and quakin Goliath would come out, you guys all know the story, and he would come down into the valley and he would check defy you, I defy you and be like, we can’t do anything with this guy. David, and this is the one of the reasons that God says this is a man of my own heart. A man after my own heart is David doesn’t give a rip how big Goliath is. He doesn’t care how impossible The task is of fighting this man is. He simply says Who is this uncircumcised fellow? Who defies our God. I’ll fight him. I’ll fight him because God is with us, right? It was about faith. So Genesis chapter six and verse four, we have this strange verse about the Nephilim. So the question is, who the heck are the Nephilim? What is this portion talking about? Now, there’s, there’s, and we’re not going to get out, we’re going to get to the fact that we’re not going to get all crazy about this stuff. Okay? But it’s here. And it’s very fascinating. And so I thought it would be very interesting for us to kind of go over it this morning. There are three basic theories to the idea of who the sons of God were Genesis six for their nephew on the earth in those days and also after when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. Okay, so who were the sons of God? The three basic theories are this, that they were the first theory is that they were of the godly line of Seth. Okay, now remember, Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel and of course, remember at was bringing forth a sacrifice to God that God accepted. And Cain was bringing forth a sacrifice to God that God did not accept. And God told Cain, don’t be upset. Don’t be angry Cain, if you do the right things, you’ll be accepted. But if you don’t do the right thing, sin is crouching at your door desires to have mastery over you, but you need to have mastery over it. Well, Cain doesn’t want anything to do with any of that kind of stuff. He wants to do it his way. He wants God to accept Him as He is. And so instead of obeying God’s word, he turns and he kills his brother Abel. And we know God calls him out on it, he’s pulled he’s sent from the garden, he sent some that area to Rome throughout the earth and a mark is put on his body to show who he is. So the One theory is that now because remember, after Abel is killed, and Cain leaves, Adam and Eve have another son, and his name is Seth, which means God is appointed. And he becomes the father of the nations that lead all the way down to Noah and Noah’s generations to Abraham, and from Abraham generations, of course, to Jesus Christ. So that’s the godly line. And so, some scholars say that when it says the sons of God, it means the sons of Seth, that’s one theory. The other theory is that as simply as a reference to heroes from the mythical past, tyrant kings like Gilgamesh, which we’re going to get into a little bit, and the third theory is that they are angels, who took physical form, and married and had children with mortal women. Now, which one of those theories do you suppose I believe? I believe that when you read the Bible, it means what it says. I believe that when you read the Bible, you don’t have to start doing all sorts of mental gymnastics, to try to make it say something that makes sense. There’s a whole bunch of things in the Bible that don’t make sense. To the human mind. Right? What is Paul say about the gospel? The truth of God’s word is foolishness to the Greek. It’s a stumbling block to the Jew, because your works aren’t involved with your salvation, right? It’s totally a gift of God by the blood of the land Jesus, that’s a stumbling block to the Jew. But to the Greek, it’s simply foolishness. All that stuff is just a bunch of poppycock. And if you’ve been to any secular school at all, you’ve had professors there, they’ll be happy to tell you that, right? It’s a bunch of nonsense. It’s a bunch of fairy tales. But it’s either God’s Word or it’s not. I think it’s, I personally suspect that it’s a combination of the second and third, that what God says in his word happen actually happen. And that a lot of the stories a lot of the histories, a lot of the legends of old, are loosely based on the fact that these things existed, that these things were there. Now, the Bible says that Noah was perfect in his generations. And one of the one of the theories about that when God’s saying that is that God was specifically talking about wolves will mention the Book of Enoch quickly, okay. But one of the things that it says in there is that when it says Noah was perfect in generations, what it means is that his family line was not polluted by these things, by these, whatever these sons of God were. Now, I want to read some verses concerning the sons of God because I think first we have to establish who are the sons of God. Okay, and the only way to do that, in my opinion is through God’s word. So, turns me to the book of Job chapter one, if you will. Job chapter one. You know which the oldest book in the Bible is, Job. Job was an ancient book. You read, you read the book of Job, it’s very, very fascinating, a lot of the things that Job talks about dinosaurs. Okay? the Bible’s pretty clear about the fact that dinosaurs and men cohabitated the Earth, okay, no, no, no, you, you, you simpleton, you moron. What are you some sort of a pipe fitter? You don’t know anything about Greek Hebrew literature. Bemis was a hippopotamus. Oh really? brains. The Bible says that the beam is tail swayed back and forth like a cedar tree. Have you seen a hippopotamus? His tail? hippopotamus his tail is not it’s a shoestring and it’s not a cedar. Okay. It talks about all these some of these creatures Leviathan in the book of Job. These are like dinosaur creatures, okay. It’s an ancient book now. Joe, chapter one, verse six. And you guys know how the story goes. Job chapter one, verse six. Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord and Satan also came among them. Again in Job chapter two and verse one, it says, again, there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord. And Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord. Remember God asked Satan this question where if you’ve been roaming to and fro across the earth, have you considered my serving job? There’s no one righteous like him and all the earth. Of course, Satan says, oh, because you’ve done all these things for him. Let me afflict him, and he’ll turn from you he’ll curse your name. And so we have the story of Joe, right? But we have this interest, these interesting verses, and what do we see here? What we see is God sitting in his glory, God’s sitting in the heavens, and the sons of God are presenting themselves before His throne, and Satan comes with them. This ain’t happening on planet Earth, or at least, it’s not happening happening in our dimension. Now, that’s a whole nother thing that we could get into, but I really don’t have the brains for that. When you’re talking about multiple dimensions, it’s the idea that because we’re three dimensional beings we can’t see a four dimensional being. An angel could be standing right here, but because he occupies four dimensions, I can’t see him. It’s as simple as that. When we’re glorified and we’re made like God made like Jesus Christ when we see him, we will be made into interdimensional beings, because will be of spirit will be a spirit drive. Remember Jesus said, touch my hands touch my wounds, Can’t you see I’m flesh and bones. He didn’t say flesh and blood. Jesus Christ. When he rose from the grave, he did not have blood, all of his blood was gone from his body. He was spirit driven. He is spirit driven. God is a spirit. He’s flesh and bone, though he did have a body, but he was able to pass through walls. He was able to appear in their presence and disappear from their presence. The Bible says we’re going to be like him when we see him. Interesting. So this is happening in the heaven. This is happening in whatever dimension or whatever place that we call heaven where God dwells in his throne room, and the sons of God are presenting themselves before God. And Satan comes with them now, move forward to Job chapter 38. Job chapter 38, verses four to seven.

And this of course, is towards the end of job when all of Job’s buddies have been accusing him God’s God’s cursing you and all these bad things are happening to you. Because you’ve sinned somewhere in your life some somewhere someplace, you’ve done something bad, and now you’re paying the price for it. And Joe is justifying himself before God and he begins to almost accuse God, because bad things are happening to him and he knows he hasn’t done anything wrong. He knows he’s a righteous man. And so he almost begins to accuse God and that’s when God shows up. And God begins to question them, you know, it’s an awesome part in the scriptures. But here’s one of the questions that God asked job job 38 for where Were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me if you have understanding who determined its measurements? Surely, you know, I wish God would show up at a university to a science class to a biology class and say, Hello, professor. Answer me this Where were you? You don’t mean? I want. Oh, man, you know what I’m saying? I get all fired up about imaginary things that are never going to happen. But what can you imagine if it did happen? How awesome that would be. And so you see God question Joe, where were you? When I laid the foundations of your Tell me if you have understanding who determined its measurements, surely you know you’re so smart, or who stretched the line upon it to what or its foundations fastened, or who laid its cornerstone. When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy. God’s talking about creating the earth God has taught about creating Job’s reality and the sons of God where they’re shouting for joy. Now, in the book of Daniel, chapter three, one of our most favorite and famous stories in the Bible, would be the fiery furnace. Remember shadrach, meshach and abednego. Who can tell me their Hebrew names? Because I can’t. Every time I read it, I gotta remember what their Michelle and as an somebody right, say shadrach, meshach and abednego. is, that’s hard enough for me, okay? You all know the story. They refuse to worship the statue that King Nebuchadnezzar bills, at the sound of all the music, everyone in the land needs to face the statue, and they need to bow down and they need to worship it. Well, of course, shadrach meshach and abednego refused to do that. They refuse to bow down and they refuse to worship and they say no matter what the consequences and they Tell the king, we believe that our God is able to save us from your hands. Okay? But even if he doesn’t, we will never I love that. That’s grit. That’s grit based on faith. They believe in their God and even if he takes allows this life to be taken from us, this is what it’s all about anyways, okay? It’s all about our relationship with him. So regardless of what happens, we’re not going to bow down to your stature he’s so mad. He has some Stoke up a fiery furnace to throw them into the fire is so hot and they Stoke it so much that the man feeding the fire dies from the heat. And they take shatter, Acme shattering and they go and they bind them with ropes and they push them and throw them somehow into the fiery furnace. And then a Daniel chapter three verses 25. And you guys all know this portion. Sorry about my cough. Our version, the New King James Version, says this look, he answered. I see format he said you three Three men into the fiery furnace, but I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt. And the form of the force is like the Son of God. Now, in our version, it’s all capital, the Son of God, we immediately think Jesus is in there with them. Now, let me preface what I’m about to say by saying this first, that may exactly be the case. That may exactly be the case. But this portion of Scripture is translated from the Aramaic. Here’s what the literal translation says. He answered and has said, lo, I am seeing for men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt and the appearance of the fourth is like to a son of the gods. It’s like a son of the gods. So the question is, who are the sons of God? Who are the sons of God? To me? It’s pretty clear. It’s talking about angels. It’s pretty clear to me that he’s talking about angels. When he says the sons of God, it’s not the line of SAS, it’s not some human line. It specifically says in Genesis chapter six, that the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. Now, I want us to go forward into the New Testament. forward into the New Testament, and to Second Peter chapter two, verses four to six. Second Peter chapter two, verses four to six. Four if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness to be reserved for judgment and did not spare the ancient world but save Noah One of eight people a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live on godly. So what is Peter doing here in this portion of Scripture, he’s taking these accounts. God not sparing the angels who sin but casting them down. The story of Noah and the flood, and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, and he’s putting them all together. Can you see that? Okay in Second Peter chapter two, verses four to six Gods Peters putting all three of those accounts together. Now, I want you to turn with me to the book of Jude for chapter one, verses six and seven, because he says a very similar thing, but he adds a little thing extra to it.

Jude chapter one, verses six to seven says this, and the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but less their own abode. He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day, as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves selves over to sexual immorality, and gone after strange flash, are set forth as an example suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. So what Jude is doing here is he’s taking this count of God taking these angels who left their proper abode, who left their proper domain, and God reserved them for eternal judgment. And he’s taking that and putting it side by side along with the account of Sodom and Gomorrah. And he’s specifically saying that the wickedness that they were guilty of is sexual immorality, and that they went after strange flesh, okay. Now, as we all know from the account of the Scriptures, the the the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were given over, not just to homosexuality. It was not just homosexuality that was the base of it was a part of it. But remember, these people in Sodom and Gomorrah, they weren’t all gay, right? Just gay, or whatever you want to call it, they were married, they had children, all of these things, but they were so wicked and they were so perverse in their sexuality, that it was a free for all. And remember when the angels came to visit Lot and his family that says the men from every part of the city surrounded their home and demanded that lot sent out those two angels who were had the appearance of young men so that they could have their way with them. And remember, law says, Please don’t do this wicked thing and who made you judge over us will do Worse to you remember, and that’s when the angels say stand back lot, we got work to do. And they step out into the streets and strike them into the city with blindness. Okay, but the idea is, and that’s where we get our word sodomy, from is from Sodom and Gomorrah. Okay, like it or not, it’s not very politically correct, but any kind of homosexuality any kind of sexual perversion, and what sexual perversion is, the definition of it is, is anything that is outside the boundaries of what God has ordained in His Word. That’s it. It’s not about one person being worse than another person or anything like that. Okay? If you have a person, a gay couple that lives together, and you have a man and a woman that lives together outside of wedlock, they are both living in sexual sin outside of God’s boundaries, period, point blank and the story. That’s what the Bible says. That’s not to put a guilt trip on anybody. Right? The Bible is set forth to make us all guilty. So that then we can call on the name of Jesus Christ to save us to sanctify us. Now I have great sympathy for homosexual people, because a man and a woman who are living together outside of marriage, they can just get married. Right? They get saved, they come to church and they get saved, they can just get married. We’re a homosexual couple, they come to church, and they get saved. There’s nothing we can do there. Because God’s word is abundantly clear. Now, I’m not saying that there’s, you know, we’re going to put them through a gay therapy class that they’re not gay anymore. You know, I think God can deliver people from anything I understand. He can deliver us from anything. Anything that God remember, will to obey. If God has told us to live our lives a certain way that he wants to provide us the power to do so if we exercise our faith, but that doesn’t mean that every gay person who gets saved, who becomes a Christian no longer has any homosexual tendencies. Having those homosexual tendencies doesn’t make them any worse than you were I right, or any different than you or I. The Bible simply says what it says, and we honor God, we don’t have some divine right to our sexuality. right we have the right to do what God says we can do. And God has ordained it and God has laid it out. That’s what it’s all about. It’s not about putting taking the group of people, your bad people. But what Jude is doing here is he’s taking the city that had rampant violent homosexuality, and putting it side by side with these angels that left their first abode and went after strange flesh. I think Genesis chapter six is very clear what happened here that was so wicked and it was so evil in the time of Noah, that demons because sons of God has just been angels, and we’re talking about fallen angels, they left their first abode. They’ve been reserved for everlasting judgment. They they mature He realized they took human form and actually had children with human women. And I think then, you know, if you listen to Chuck missler, and that’s one of his main things he talks about is he believes that was one of the major reasons for the flood was because he believes that Satan was trying to purposefully pollute the bloodline of the Messiah. Because if you can intertwine the bloodline of the Messiah, Jesus Christ with the bloodline of demons, or fall angels, it’s not what are you gonna do? And so that he surmises that that’s one of the reasons that God sent the flood. Okay, now, just historically, boy, this has been going longer than I hoped it would. Sorry, guys. We’re almost there. I just want to make a few more points. Okay. Careful. You know, history books, there used to be accounts and they used to be stories of giants and stuff like that. But what has happened over the years is scholars and historians have simply began to say, well, that’s ridiculous. But we know that can’t be so that’s obviously just the vest or just that it’s just the legends just that but this is this is stuff that goes that goes all the way back. Now, I mentioned earlier about the story of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh was a Sumerian King somewhere around the third century BC, okay? And the accounts of Gilgamesh was that he was a half God half human. Chuck, do you want to put up the first picture? Oh, it’s right there. This isn’t an actual picture of Gilgamesh, but I thought it was pretty crazy looking. So you want to zoom in on it or Chuck or make it fullscreen? Can you do that or no? Doesn’t matter. So this would be Gilgamesh on the on the right that’s weird. Okay, anyway, Gilgamesh on the right, go ahead and go to the next picture. This is just a dummy illustration for the next picture. Okay. This is actually a Marian sculpture, okay and action, whatever you want to call it. You see what Gilgamesh is holding in his hand. That’s a lion that Gilgamesh is holding in his left hand. It’s got a he’s got a, I think it’s supposed to be a large serpent in his right hand, and he’s holding a lion in his left hand. Okay? Maybe this is just coincidence. Maybe it’s just legend. I just think it’s very interesting. Here’s another cool story. Put up the next picture chalk. You guys know who that is? Buffalo Bill Cody. When in his autobiography, he talks about when he was amongst the Pawnee and one of the party brought him a femur bone, brought him a bone and there was a surgeon that was with Buffalo Bill and his crew when he examined the bone he said, this is a femur bone of a man, but he would have to be like 20 feet tall. This is a femur bone of a man, but he would have to be about 20 feet tall and the Pawnee is And went on to tell Buffalo Bill and his crew about that ages and ages in the aeons before there was a group of giants that roamed the earth, a group of giants that roamed the earth you can put the next picture of chalk. And they were so large that they could run next to a herd of buffalo and scoop one up and rip its leg off and eat it as it walked.

But these giants mocked the Great Spirit. And so the great spirits sent a flood and they climbed the mountains, but the wallet water followed after them to the point where the water covered the great mountains and the giants were destroyed. And thus the Great Spirit purged them from the earth. Coincidence? Maybe, I don’t know if that’s a word of God. fascinating, fascinating, very interesting. Caesar in some of his accounts when they were when the Romans were fighting the the The Celts he there’s accounts of Celtic giants that they faced during some of some of their campaigns. The word Patagonia when they when they discovered the land it means padam means foots where we get our, our word podiatrists from gonia means giants. footprints of giants when they wanted to Patagonia. They found these supposedly they found giant footprints of man that would have must have been massive beings. And they named the place Patagonia giant footprints foot giants. Now, of course, you read history and I’m just going to tell you flat out it’s going to say well, because the people the explorers were very small people. And when they saw the footprint of Oh, like a seven foot person, they would be absolutely amazed by them. I’d be amazed by like, wow, shacks got big foot. You know, I remember like the footlocker when I was in high school instead Shaq sighs foot there, his shoe and it was like this. So I could ride the thing like a canoe down the river, you know? But I wouldn’t like to fall over and name a country after it check foot, you know what I mean? To me, it would have been something that was very, very, very, very impressive. So all of that is just free information. Okay. And we don’t know which of the legends are true. You know? It’s because I mentioned briefly the Book of Enoch. And indeed the Book of Enoch talks about knowing purpose generations. The Book of Enoch is not canonized scripture. The Book of Enoch gives a whole generational list of angels, and basically blames all upset man sin, the sin of the world on these fallen angels. That is not what the Scripture teaches us is that we are responsible for our sin. The scripture specifically says let no one who when they are tempted say God is tempting me. Because God Himself cannot be tempted nor does he tempt but we’re led away of our own loss. It’s an extra biblical, it’s an extra biblical book and Paul talks about not falling after mids and endless genealogies. You know, he’s talking about That the Book of Enoch was around at that time as well. It was not made part of Scripture for a very specific reason. So none of this stuff that I’m sharing with you guys is to say, there was Nephilim in Buffalo. But all I’m saying was, I believe that the word of God is true. I believe that the word of God is true. And when the children of Israel sent spies into the land, and they came back and said, we saw giants in the land, the word is Neff alum. And we were like grasshoppers in our own sight. And so we were in their sight. I believe it. I believe it, I believe exactly what it says. And it would make sense based on on some of these things we read, so we’re going to stop there. Sorry. I wanted to get into into chapter 14, but.

Heavenly Father, thank You for for your word, Lord. And and, Lord, we want it we don’t want to take these things that we talked about today and make any new doctrine out of it or anything like that. It’s just fascinating and, but we do want to be people that believe that your Word is true. We do want to people that believe that everything that you say in your Word is true, and that we can trust it because you’ve said it father, regardless of what any man says, Lord, or how foolish it is to the people of this of this world, Lord, we believe that your Word is true. So we pray that you would help us to have that kind of faith and that we would not waver or doubt, Lord, but that we would be like Joshua and Caleb, and that we would go where you tell us to go and believe what you say, Lord, regardless of how impossible it may seem to us and the people around us, Father, we pray that we would have that kind of faith. Lord, we love you. We praise you, we worship You, and we thank you for your word. In Jesus name we pray, Amen. Amen.
