Let me first state this is a subject that is of increasing interest for me. I have read several books on this subject in recent months in order to obtain a greater understanding of the various positions taken on this issue. Hamp's book ranks right up there with other books on the subject I have engaged thus far. He aptly discusses what took place in Genesis 6, specifically what actually took place between the sons of God (fallen angels) and the daughters of men, creating what Scripture calls the Nephilim, the giants and men of renown. Using solid research and interaction with Scripture, Hamp demolishes the Sethite Theory, the idea that the sons of God were actually the progeny of Seth and not something of a more "angelic" nature, in this case angels who rejected their proper estate as noted in the book of Jude.
I appreciated Hamp's focus on the battle between the two seeds, namely the seed of the woman and the seed of the enemy. This battle has waged ever since the events of Genesis 3 with the enemy seeming to up the ante in Genesis 6 in his attempt to corrupt the seed of the woman. This of course resulted in a global flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim.
Hamp also discusses some rather interesting concepts such as the idea that Adam and Eve wore garments of light, something he finds support in based on scientific research that indicates our DNA emits a very low level of light. Pointing to ancient Jewish and Christian writings on this subject, Hamp suggests prior to sin, Adam and Eve reflected the image in part. Referring to a number of Scriptures that speak of God's glory and the marvelous light that surrounds and seemingly comes from His very presence. Also of note are the references to angels having the appearance of lightning, thus suggesting prior to sin, Adam and Eve could have also had such an appearance. Post sin, those garments of light were no more; however, Scripture seems to indicate in eternity future, the people of God will once more receive bodies such as Adam and Eve had in the beginning that reflected the image of the Creator.
While I disagree with Hamp's pre-tribulation rapture position, the scenario he presents of the grand deception that is stated in Scripture to take place in the end of days is quite plausible and conforms to the activities we see currently taking place. His discussion of the transhumanism efforts, the UFO phenomenon to include alien abductions, and the attempt to mix animal and human genes is fascinating and to be honest, quite scary to read. With that said, these various efforts to align themselves with the prophecies found in Scripture and Hamp does an excellent job outlining the agenda of these groups along with providing information from those who are pushing these activities.
One thing is quite clear and that is something evil took place in Genesis 6 that angered God and it is apparent that same level of corruption is scheduled to take place in the end of days. Tales of giants are not just some bedtime story worthy of a good Disney or science fiction movie. The corruption or attempted corruption of the seed by the fallen angels that took place in the days of Noah is stated in Scripture to take place once again. The giants of old are well documented and to deny their existence is to in fact deny both Scriptural proof and archaeological and historical research. Regardless of what takes place in the days ahead, we can be assured as Hamp so aptly reminds us that God is in control and we can trust that despite the enemies attempts to thwart God's divine plan, those attempts will fall short.
I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in this subject matter. Hamp provides the reader with well researched information from Scripture, science, and history, presenting a clear examination of who the Nephilim are and what is currently being planned by those who desire to try once again the failed plan enacted so long ago. Hamp's book is informative and as noted on the cover, "A thrilling read!"
This is not in novel form, its more of a scientific approach to the events of everything from creation to the cross to prophecy and ties it all in very well. The author is a linguist and studied in the Holy Land for many years before writing his books. I have seen his presentations on the information in this book on youtube and elsewhere, and was immediately impressed to get the book and read the full details.
Some of what Doug had to say were things i had thought for many years, but had no real proof of, just a hunch or an educated guess about. Doug is an eloquent speaker and even a better writer. I was a different person after i read this book. I think it put things in scripture in a particular way that something in my spirit clicked and i have seen things more clearly ever since. I went through Bible college and have been in church most of my life but have never seen any of this information presented in this way.
I have given this book as a gift to several friends and pastors. This is not a replacement for the Word, but it is a great side text to be read with it. It provokes thought and widens your understanding. It helps you put the historic wider pieces together and combine all we know and see currently, into a picture of what seems to be our near future.
