But not only do our attacks come from Satan but, they also come from own sinful nature. It can feel at times as though we are in hand to hand combat both within our own-selves and from forces outside of us. Our giants come in three forms. Spiritual opposition -. Self-inflicted —. Worldly Obstacles - financial, emotional, relational, work-related, laziness, distractions, etc.
Anything that is preventing you from reaching your full potential. No matter what your obstacle, all obstacles have one thing in common —. They look really, big! Then Goliath, a Philistine champion from Gath, came out of the Philistine ranks to face the forces of Israel. He was over nine feet tall! He wore a bronze helmet, and his bronze coat of mail weighed pounds.
He also wore bronze leg armor, and he carried a bronze javelin on his shoulder. His armor bearer walked ahead of him carrying a shield.
Goliath stood and shouted a taunt across to the Israelites. Choose one man to come down here and fight me! Giant sized obstacle. Royal Egyptian cubit. What obstacles are you facing today? Fear, Unsaved family and friends, financial, work related, spiritual attacks on you or family members, all obstacles look like giants. But all obstacles have another thing in common — they are meant to be overcome.
Over accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have reportedly been unearthed from ancient burial sites over a two-hundred-year period in North America. Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian Ethnology reports have carefully documented this.
These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast with strange anatomic anomalies such as double rows of teeth, jawbones so large as to be fit over the face of the finder, and elongated skulls, documented in virtually every state. Off the California coast, ancient articles are many. Thousands of giant skeletons have been reported with blond or red hairstreaks. The occupation dates more than 30, thousand years ago and would have ended there about 11, years ago.
This story attracts the attention of tourists who visit the strange Ralph Glidden museum on Catalina Island. The most incredible discovery took place near Carthage when the city still existed 23 centuries ago: the diggers unearthed two 36 ft skeletons! Among other things, there were two axes with a weight of Another convincing trace: see delusional proportions of these Flintstones.
If they were cut to fit a hand, it should have been the hand of a jolly good giant. We can judge from the tiny size of an adult hand, besides these gigantic prehistoric flint scrapers. Many giant skulls and skeletons have been found over centuries in Texas, USA.
Here are the references for those who want to check it out. A major archaeological discovery recently occurs in Kansas. The greatest prehistoric battle and burying ground yet discovered in the United States has just been found near the little town of Redlands, Kansas. When Illidan Stormrage threatened the security of the world, archdruid Malfurion Stormrage used his vast powers to call upon the aid of the mountain giants.
Kael'thas Sunstrider ordered the dropping of huge crystals onto Outland , which summoned giants and corrupted them. This explains why Draenor 's giants seek to harm the lands instead of protecting it. Depending on the type of giant, some speak Titan , some speak Giant , and some speak Kalimag.

The Rephaim Were Giants It is remarkable that the Rephaim are also mentioned in the Bible as real, living, historical beings. In fact, they were residents in the territory of modern Jordan and Syria, in the land that lies generally east of the Sea of Galilee. To this day, ruins may be found in this region that are of gigantic proportion.
Here, and northward into Syria and Lebanon, there are the remains of ancient buildings and temples that stagger the imagination. On the Acropolis of Baalbek, there once stood a temple dedicated to the storm god Hadad.
It was 60 feet wide and feet long, surrounded by 19 columns, each 62 feet high and over seven feet in diameter. But its flooring stones — still intact — are each larger than a modern railroad boxcar! No one has a clue about how they were moved into place. And there are many other ancient examples of outsized ancient structures in the Middle East. We should not be surprised by their existence.
Perhaps the most famous incident is in Numbers 13, in which a man reconnaissance party is sent in to spy out the land. In early Hebrew manuscripts, these giants are called the Nephilim, and were apparently thought by the spies to be descendants of a long line of these creatures, whom we first read about in the days before the Flood. Here, we can only speculate.
It seems likely that the lineage of the Nephilim, Emim, Zamzummim, and Rephaim were somehow restarted even in the days after the Flood.
One thing we know: after the Flood their behavior was continually evil, just like that of the pre-Flood Nephilim. The result seems to be a monstrous offspring.
They were an abnormal race. All of them seem to have been hated and feared by normal men. God sanctioned their destruction and eventually their lineage entirely disappeared. Even the Zamzummims were a subclass of the Rephaim. The Lord even commissioned him to wipe out the last of their race. Prior to their entry into the Promised Land, Moses led the Israelites on a military campaign northward through Moab, Ammon and Bashan, lands today known as Jordan and Syria.
His conquests were concluded with the defeat of Og, King of Bashan. We have already seen that Og was truly monstrous in size! The important thing to remember is that he was in the bloodline of the Rephaim. In fact, he was the last of that evil line. Moses was responsible for the demise of the Rephaim.
True, other giants arose after this period. Probably the best example is Goliath. But the period of dominant cultures of giants ended with Og. The living Rephaim, like their dead namesakes who wander in the congregation of the damned, seem to be the product of a dark and evil system that lies hidden in the history of humanity.
Among the Jews, it is even taught that some of the Nephilim survived the Flood of Noah, and that Og was the last of their lineage. This is certainly not borne out in Scripture. But there does seem to be a dark spiritual connection between Og and those monstrous predecessors.
The ancient world of the Jews, Greeks and Romans abounded with tales about how the gods came down and intermarried with mankind, producing demigods, heroes and half-man-half-beast monstrosities.
The ancients believed that a kernel of truth lay at the center of these stories. But under the current mindset, theologians now object to the idea that disembodied spirit beings even if they exist could intrude upon the physical world — and especially to mate with human women. Yet, in the millennia prior to Sir Francis Bacon and the men of modern science, with their methods of empirical science and inductive reasoning, that is precisely what was taught and believed.
The flaw in his method is that man makes assumptions hypotheses , based upon his own beliefs and prejudices. An ordinary young woman from Nazareth became the mother of Jesus Christ. Why her? Written by Janne Epland. Written by Heather Crawford.

Salvation and sanctification.For giants to be giants in those early days they had to be really, really tall. But while we see whole armies of giants in the Bible called Nephilim, Rephaims, Emims (Zanzummims or Zuzims), Anakim or children of Anak, the purpose of this article is to point out only those for which we have some details, those who are by and large singled out by.
