Matthew 24.37: “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Jesus’ disciples had asked Him what would be the signs of His coming and the end of the world. The question they asked wasn’t about the “Harpazō” but it was regarding the Second Coming and the end of the world. Other translations use the word “age” instead of “world.” Jesus told them not to be deceived. Then He told them about the signs of the times that would include wars, rumors of wars, love waxing cold, the abomination of desolation, and much more. One of the signs given was that it was to be like the days of Noah. The men He was talking to understood what He meant because they weren’t confused about what the days of Noah entailed. It wasn’t until later that the meaning got confused. So, what were those days like?
“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” (Genesis 6:4).
Everyone can read the English translation and see that the antediluvian world population had to contend with giants. But if we dig a little deeper into the original Hebrew we come away with a very profound conclusion as to what these folks were really dealing with. The Hebrew word “nĕphiyl” is translated “giants” in the King James Version of the Bible, but most other versions say “Nephilim” which is, the better translation. Although these creatures were giants, “nĕphiyl” actually means: to fall, or fallen ones. Of course this does not diminish their size; many have dismissed the entire idea that these were giants simply because of a translation error. Make no mistake these Nephilim creatures were gigantic…and evil.
This same verse also contains the English words “men of renown.” This is translated from the Hebrew word “gibbowr”, which means strong and mighty. This gives us the sense that these Nephilim were very powerful beings and were much stronger than mere men.
