Satan: Our Giant Enemy

 

“That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” – (Gen.6:2,4).

“And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so were we in their sight” – (Num.13:33).

“Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour” – (I Pet.5:8).

“The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the devil” – (Mt.13:38,39).

 

I’m preaching on Satan, the giant enemy of God and the people of God, both the Jews of the Old Testament and the true church of the New Testament. In (Rev.12:7) Satan is shown as a giant red dragon, the evil angel enemy of God, fighting against Michael and the good angels. He’s a giant enemy of the saints of God and must not be taken lightly. We need to be sober and watchful of this giant enemy lest we get caught in his snares – very deceitful, well concealed snares. I will be preaching on the doctrine of giants in the bible. Giants are in the bible 21 times and all 21 times they have been taken away in the devil’s bible – the New International Perversion – (The N.I.V.). Our giant enemy continues to attack God’s Word today as he did with Eve.

 

Giants are first mentioned in the Bible in (Gen.6:4) and this is one of the great battlegrounds of faith in God’s Word. There must be something very important in it that Satan doesn’t want known because of all the ammunition expended in (Gen.6:1-4). There were giants in the days of Noah – “And also after that.” There were giants ‘after that’ in the Old Testament and some of them were named, like Goliath. They were known as mighty men and men of renown, which is a description of the reputation of the giants. This reputation, distorted by time, has come down to us as Satan’s godmen, who were worshipped as Gods like: Ulysses, Apollo, Venus, Titan, Jupiter, Thor, Zeus, Atlas, Mercury, etc., etc. The exploits of these false ‘gods’ are legendary in all civilizations.

 

The sons of God here are evil fallen angels and this is shown to us in (Job.1,2,38) and (Ps.89:6). When these fallen angels “left their first estate and habitation” – (Jude 6) and came down to earth, they not only had sex with human women, but also married them. Angels are always males in the Bible and so they wanted human women. When the children were born they became a hybrid race of giants, the product of human women and ‘mighty angels” – (2 Thes.1:7). ‘Mighty’ angels produced ‘mighty’ men. Fallen angels have been here and produced children called giants. We read of no female giants in the bible.

 

“And his angels he charged with folly” - (Job.4:18). Folly in the Bible is not just being foolish but (evil, wickedness, especially lewd behavior). The first ‘folly’ in the bible is in (Gen.34:7). because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob’s daughter.” God charged the evil angels with ‘folly’ in having sex with human women. God charged his evil angels with folly, not the good angels. (See also Judges 19:23).

 

Satan and his fallen angels used their great wisdom and power to materialize in bodily form and fornicate with human women. In (Gen.18:1-8 and 19:13) we see angels materializing as men in bodies that can eat and drink. In occultism, devils are made to materialize. Demons are said to have sex today with women. Incubi and succubi are evil spirits that perform those acts.

 

This sin of the fallen angels was not mainly because of lust but they followed Satan’s diabolical plan of attack. Satan, the cunning, evil genius, was corrupting the seed of the woman, the promised Redeemer that would bruise his head in (Gen.3:15) and a whole hybrid race of evil giants were produced. These giants were always, 100%, the enemies of Israel because they were sons of Satan. A few months after leaving Egypt, the Jews were about to enter the Promised Land. The devil had strategically placed his giant offspring exactly there to prevent them from entering. Of the twelve spies of Israel, when they saw the giants, ten were afraid. Because of their cowardice and lack of faith God made them wander in the wilderness for forty years. (Num.13). Satan – our giant enemy – Amen.

 

When wandering Israel returned to the promised land 40 years later, Caleb became a mighty man of God when he defeated the mighty men of Satan – the giants by faith. David became a mighty man when he defeated the mighty giant of Satan – Goliath – by faith – (I Sam.17). David armed by faith and a few rocks, defeated the giant enemy Goliath who was 10 ft. tall. The whole army of Israel was afraid to fight the giant. It was like (Num.13) once again, but David had faith in the Lord and victory was his. We need to “be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – (Epl.6:10-12). We fight against the giant enemy Satan with spiritual armor. This is the only way we can defeat our mighty giant enemy. Faith in Jesus Christ and his might (for He’s the Almighty) fights the battle for us for we are no match for Satan – he’s too big and strong. “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.)” - (2 Cor. 10:4). We cannot battle Satan with our flesh. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh” – (2 Cor.10:3). We are to be strong in the Lord Jesus and in the power of His might, for this the only way of victory. The physical, visible, giant enemies of Israel in the Old Testament were a constant reminder of Satan, their invisible, giant spiritual enemy that fathered the giants and masterminded this attack from behind the scenes.

 

Many giants of Satan lived in the Gaza Strip on the western border of Israel by the sea. They were Philistines like Goliath and they continually were Israel’s enemies in the flesh, like Satan was their spiritual enemy. The name today is ‘Palestinians’ instead of ‘Philistines’ and again they inhabit the same Gaza Strip and continually attack Israel just as in the days of the Old Testament. Israel today is not just fighting the Arabs and Palestinians, they are fighting the giant enemy Satan. He is the spiritual enemy who is using the Palestinians like he used the Philistines of old. He controls them like puppets on a string. It’s a spiritual battle. It will culminate in the battle of Armageddon. It is only when Israel turns to the Lord Jesus that they win this battle at Jesus’ second coming – (Rev.19).

 

All the U.N. armies of the world will come against Israel to battle like the giant Goliath came against little David. Israel is then saved by faith in Christ. The battle is the Lord’s as the Lord Jesus fights for Israel against the giant army of the ‘beast’ that surrounds Israel. Like David and Goliath, little David (Israel) wins the battle against their giant enemy Satan with the power of the Almighty. Armageddon is the giant of all wars because of the giant weapons of modern-day warfare. Israel has many of the giant bombs called H-Bombs, but these carnal weapons will not save them, the Lord Jesus saves them. The greater son of David saves them from their giant enemies like David did with Goliath. “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: All that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. In that day shall the lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them” – (Zach.12:2,3,8). Certainly you can see the battle of David and Goliath once again. Satan’s giant army, led by Antichrist, will be defeated by the Lord Jesus, the greater son of David, along with the faithful remnant of Jews who turn to Jesus at this time. There is victory over our giant enemy Satan only through Jesus Christ.

 

When you see on TV the Palestinians throwing stones at Israelis, you should think about God making Israel a burdensome stone for all people. And you should think about the five stones of David and his faith that killed the giant philistine Goliath. David and Goliath was only a prophetic foreview of Armageddon, a preview of the defeat of the giant enemy Satan that was started when the Lord Jesus defeated him on Calvary’s tree.

 

Satan always fights to prevent anyone from getting born again and entering the true promised land of Heaven. Satan fights against the saving gospel of Christ which is the only way to conquer the Jordan of death and receive eternal life in heaven. “And this is the ‘promise’ that he hath promised us, even eternal life” – (I Jn.2:25). All the promises of God are in his beloved Son – the Promised One. “For all the promises of God in him, are yea, and in him Amen” – (2 Cor.1:20).

 

Get the victory over the giant enemy Satan by faith in Christ. Repent of your sins and turn away from your wicked ways and turn to Christ and righteousness by faith. Call upon the Lord Jesus to save you. Avail yourself of God’s amazing grace in his beloved Son on the cross. Be cleansed from your sin in His precious blood. “And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” – ((I Jn.1:7). “For it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul” – (Lev.17:11). Remember my text in (Mt.13:38,39) “the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy than sowed them is the devil.” Like the giants who were sowed by Satan’s angels, all people are children of the devil corrupted by sin. We absolutely need to be born again by the Holy Sprit to become children of God. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” – (I Pet.1:23). Believe the incorruptible bible and you will receive an incorruptible body that will live and abide forever.

 

Beware of our Giant enemy Satan
