New Light: The Nephilim Are coming back?

Updated: Feb 24



The new doctrinal changes announced in the Annual Meeting of October 2023 have now made it in the Watchtower of May of 2024 that has just been posted on jw.org. Now I won't go into the reasons why the Watchtower has decided to change their stance on the ressurection of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah or the people of Noah's days that will be material for another video. What I would like to concentrate is paragraph 7 of that article and the caption under the image in that paragraph.

Let me just say before we get in this that the Watchtower has pride themselves for over 100 years that they got the identity of the Nephilim right.And I have to say this is one of the few things they got right. You see back in the days of Charles Taze Russell, the first president of the Watchtower, in the 19th century, when the Christan scholars used to teach that the Nephilim were nothing more than the offspring of the sons of Seth and the daughter of Cain the Bible Students preached that the Nephilim were actually the offspring of angels that came down here on earth in Genesis 6 and the women of mankind. This is now what most Christian scholars believe and has replaced the old view. The problem is this that Jehovah's Witnesses stoped there and did no furher research on this issue .They never considered other verses in the book of Genesis that show that alot more than this unholy union was going on back in those days. Now paragraph 7 has this to say:

We do not know how Jehovah judged each individual; nor do we know whether those who were killed had an opportunity to learn about Jehovah and to repent. In regard to the time of the Flood, the Bible does say that Noah was “a preacher of righteousness.” (2 Pet. 2:5) But it does not say that while he was building a colossal ark, he was also attempting to reach every individual on earth who would face destruction in the Deluge. Similarly, in the case of the nations of Canaan, we do not know if all those wicked people had an opportunity to learn about Jehovah and change their ways. Caption follows (Noah and his family are working on the colossal ark. It is not known if Noah led an organized preaching campaign during that time of construction to reach all the peoples of the earth before the Flood came (See paragraph 7)

Here is the thing , they get this verse in 2 Peter 2:5 all wrong, where it says that Noah was a "preacher of righteousness" , because when they hear "preacher" their mind goes on literature carts and knocking from door to door and maps. The thing is the verb used in this verse implies "preaching of judgement " and not "preaching to prosilytize". Think about it, God never had any intention to take anyone on board the Ark, only Noah and his family and all the animals, the dimensions of the Ark are sufficient to prove this fact. If God had in mind the saving of more people He would have instructed Noah to build a far bigger structure. Even Methuselah, Noah's granddad was not not allowed to get on the Ark, according to Jewish Tradition ,he died 7 days before the Flood, that's why Genesis 7:4 says :"For in just seven days, I will make it rain" so vasically He gave Noah 7 days to mourn his forfather Methuselah who by the way his name means "When he dies then it comes. " Now if God didn't allow a righteous man Methuselah to get into the Ark, why do you think He would let unrighteous to do just that.

Methuselah: His name literally means, “His death shall bring it,” or loosely translated, “When he dies, it will come.” What will come? The Flood! Enoch seems to have had a revelation at the time of Methuselah’s birth concerning the destruction in God’s judgment to come, through a flood. While Methuselah lived, the flood would be held back.

So the Watchtower wants to teach now that we don't know whether the people from Noah's days are coming back. OK, let's take this argument to its logical extreme. Are the Nephilim coming back? These angelic hybrids that caused Noah's Flood with their violence, are they coming back? They lived back then didn't they? What a Nephilim had repended would God have allowed to get on the Ark? Do you see what kind of issues this argument creates?

But before I close this video let's go back to that verse 2 Peter 2:5 that verb preacher of righteousness "can also mean proclaimer.Noah was proclaiming judgement he didn't want to start Bible Studies with Nephilim. This same verb "kirixo" is used in another verb where it shows that Jesus after his death proclaimed (=kirixo, the same verb) to the spirits in prison in 1 Peter 3:18-20:

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. 19After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits— 20to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built

Do you think Jesus was trying to start Bible Studies with fallen angels and Nephilim that are currently in prison OR was He proclaiming His victory over them. So no, Noah was not extending an invitation to anyone , he was proclaiming judgement over them and that is why this new light from the Watchtower is false.
