Is The U.S. Government Hiding a Biblical Nephilim Called The Giant of Kandahar, Afghanistan?

"It’s one of the most bizarre stories to come out of America’s longest war – an allegation United States Special Forces engaged and killed a “giant” in Afghanistan".  "But it’s being reported by multiple sources. Several eyewitnesses claim the battle not only took the life of an American soldier, but that the government flew the huge corpse of the attacker back to the United States".


"Reporter and researcher L.A. Marzulli explores the spectacular charge in the newest installment of “The Watchers,” the blockbuster series investigating the real evidence behind the Nephilim. These creatures were the offspring of the “sons of God,” the angels, and the “daughters of men.” In Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, the Bible speaks of “giants” populating the Earth. When ordinary people saw them, they said “we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”

BWV Comment

As the article states, the Bible speaks of giants in the days before the world-wide Flood (days of Noah) and when the 10 spies of Israel went to spy out the land of Canaan they observed very large human beings - the Nephilim(Hebrew - nephil).  Vacation Bible schoolers usually learn the story of Goliath the Philistine giant whom David as a young boy killed with a slingshot and a stone (one), then cut off Goliath's head with his huge sword.  It is not unreasonable to assume there are Nephilim today living in areas like Afghanistan.  According to the article, it took several rounds in the head to kill the Giant of Kandahar. Why would the U.S. government hide this from the American people?  If we actually knew all the government was hiding from us we would probably be amazed, frightened and even angry.  One reason is it proves the Bible is accurate and truthful. 

What is important from a biblical prophecy perspective is Jesus said His return would be linked to a time like it was in Noah's day - giants in the earth. No doubt the government has thoroughly examined the Giant of Kandahar's body and know a lot about his DNA.  Where did he come from and are there more like him?  The article said the C-130 pilot who flew the giant's body to the U.S. commented that he was 12 feet tall and weighed 1100 pounds.  Goliath, by comparison was over 9 feet tall, so the Giant of Kandahar was even larger.  I can imagine the troops that encountered and killed him probably were taken aback by the sheer size of such a creature. 

Jesus also said in the last days there would be signs in the heavens and upon the earth, great distress of nations with perplexity...causing men's hearts to fail from fear of what things they expected to happen on the earth:

Luke 21:25-27 NKJV

25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

The Greek word used for men's heart failing them from fear does not meant they have a heart attack and die rather the word implies weakness such as fainting or passing out.  Now that is certainly great fear meaning things will be very bad.  And notice something else, it says this fear will be two-fold: (1) from perplexing distress of nations and (2) from the things THEY WERE EXPECTING TO TAKE PLACE BECAUSE THE POWERS OF THE HEAVENS WOULD BE SHAKEN.  

The Greek word for shaken implies agitation; to rock back and forth; to topple and to destroy.  Apparently the atmosphere above the earth will experience some type of cataclysmic phenomenon that will greatly affect not only the atmosphere, but also the terra firma. 

Isaiah 24 is about Judgment Day for planet earth on the the Day of the Lord, which I address in my book, The Day of the Lord, The Key To Understanding End-Time Prophecy

The following passage resembles what Jesus said in Luke 21:

17 Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
18 And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,
And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.

19 The earth is violently broken,
The earth is split open,
The earth is shaken exceedingly.
20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
And shall totter like a hut;
Its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
And it will fall, and not rise again.

None of this takes place during the Tribulation Period, which is why we know the Day of the Lord is not the same as the Tribulation, but is posttrib (occurring after the Tribulation has ended). 

Jesus said the Great Tribulation would be so bad there would not be another time like it not in the past or in the future, but most who read this text teach that is only the time of the last 3 1/2 years of the GT not realizing it spills over into the posttrib Day of the Lord. Have you ever read Revelation 11:7-10 about the two witnesses and wondered what it means that the people rejoice and send gifts to one another?

When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

They think when the two witnesses are killed, the Great Tribulation is over not realizing the Day of the Lord is the very next great event on God's prophetic timetable. There is a lot of teaching today in the area of eschatology (doctrine of last things) that is entirely bogus, but is accepted as truth because Christians do not know their Bible.  

For example, I read today an article by WND how excited Christians are (including well-known pastors) over the teaching of two lost Jewish Torah scholars concerning the nearness of Messiah's coming (first coming for they reject the New Testament teaching the Messiah has already come in Yeshua - Jesus). They talk about how the Messianic era will be time when Jewish Israel will be teaching the Torah to Christians and Gentiles, when only the Hebrew language will be spoken, when the feasts of Israel will be observed by all people (the 7-Feasts given in the Torah are not the Feast's of Israel, but the Lord's Feast's) and that Christians will learn the customs of Judaism.  In other words, learning the Torah will be the central focus of the millennial kingdom. 

What amazes me is that Christians particularly pastors believe this stuff.  It Christians are going to have to become Jews during the millennial kingdom then the Books of Hebrews and Galatians are nothing but a pack of lies and should not even be in the New Covenant. I personally know Christians who have left the Churches to join Messianic Torah congregations thinking they are missing something by being a Gentile Christian that focuses on the Lord Jesus Christ and spreading His gospel to the world to both Jews and Gentiles.  These misguided Christian pastors imply because the first converts to Christianity were Jews, the Church continued to worship as Judaizing Christians. That is simply not true from the Book of Acts or history.  If the Apostle Paul had continued to worship as a Judaizer, then why did the Jews try to kill him everywhere he went (they finally had Rome kill him). 

What did the Jerusalem Council tell Paul and Barnabas:

18 “Known to God from eternity are all His works. 19 Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath.”

Apparently James was the leading elder of the Jerusalem Council and it is probably him that gave the verdict of the council. Does this verdict sound like Gentile Christians need to become Torah believers and join Jewish Messianic congregations to learn the Torah and how to worship the Lord like a Jew?   All the Council said to Paul and Barnabas, representatives of the Christian Churches in the first century A.D., was a warning about Idolatry to include food polluted by idols (today that would be eating meat that has been sanctified by Sharia law) and sexual immorality. 

Unfortunately the modern Church is guilty of both warnings as it has allowed both idols and sexual immorality inside its worship houses.
