My teenage son Reid recently had a dream in which he had an encounter with a giant, one of the Nephilim (see scriptures below).
He and his best friend Chase were out at our chicken coop closing up the for the night. They had also built a fire to entertain themselves outside for a while. Suddenly a giant came out of the woods, menacing and horrible in appearance. He was super ugly, wearing animal skin clothing, and had dirty long hair and a beard. When he first came out of the woods, he beat on the metal roof of our chicken coop with his fists. Then he stomped out their fire and smashed Chase on the head so hard he knocked him out cold.
Reid bravely jumped onto the giant, but was instantly flung off onto the ground. So he got up and ran in terror back to our house to get our help.
I was in the kitchen having fellowship with other believers, including Chase’s parents. Reid quickly told me what happened, but not one of us offered to help him, including me. I calmly replied, “You know what to do.”
Reid grabbed a semi-automatic rifle and an extra clip. Then he ran back outside to the chicken coop and found the giant was dragging Chase into the woods to kill him!
Reid emptied a clip into the giant, changed clips, and did the same thing again, but nothing happened! The giant acted like he had not even been shot!
So Reid turned the rifle around and began beating him with the butt of the rifle. The giant let go of Chase’s leg, but only to strike Reid with a back handed slap that sent him flying back several feet. So he got back up and shouted in a loud voice, “THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS AGAINST YOU AND IN HIS NAME I COMMAND YOU TO LET HIM GO!”
The giant immediately stopped dragging Chase and made some strange loud groaning sounds with a deep voice. Then he dropped down to the ground and appeared to be dead! Reid picked up Chase, who was still unconscious, and carried him into the house.
1 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them,
2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.
3 Then the Lord said, “ My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
32 So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size.
33 There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.
