“For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37
“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. Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and full of violence. And God looked upon the earth and saw that it was corrupt; for all living creatures on the earth had corrupted their ways.” Genesis 6: 4/11-12
People are sure fascinated with giants these days aren’t they? Just like everything else, that’s not a coincidence.
So, this is an interesting development. Giant statues coming to 21 cities in 2021.

Here’s a Today Show piece about it.
A 24 million dollar, giant, moving statue, that can take on any image. How much sense does this make in our post scamdemic world where millions have lost businesses and livelihood and hundreds of millions of people are homeless and starving? But setting rational thought aside, it all rings a bell doesn’t it? Right on cue with the JAB (which I’m still sure is an acronym for something) we’re drawn to Revelation 13.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Rev 13:11-18)
So, we’re supposed to see this as yet another “sign” that the antichrist is right around the corner and that this technology will be used as the prophesied image of the beast. Check. Granted this thing could well be used by the PTB in the playing out of their script to portray a powerful world leader, seeing that it can bear anyone’s image. Actually Biden may almost be a better candidate for the image of the beast… but I digress… 🤔
The dispensational idea of a single-man antichrist who will appear during a brief period of tribulation to rebuild a Jewish temple in Jerusalem, take a seat in it and reinstitute the blood sacrifice of animals to atone for sin – while the Jews finally recognize Jesus as Messiah in the special season created just for them directly preceding His second return – has been engrained into nearly all of us… This fairy tale – and that’s what it is, I’m sorry if that steps on any toes – lends itself, not to proper eschatology, but to a script created specifically for the purpose of building a COUNTERFEIT New World Order in place of the one that Christ has already established! From a biblical perspective, this is nothing but an intensifying of the serpent’s deception as Christ’s return draws near. As I’ve said before, I believe we are in the short season at the end of the millennium where the serpent, who was partially bound so the gospel could go forth throughout the world, is loosed once again to deceive the nations.
But let’s get back to our giant statues and consider the scripture about the image of the beast. Looking at the word Man in Revelation 13:18, translated from the Greek word anthrópos. (This is the same word used in 2 Thess 2:3, which refers to “that man of sin.”) From Strong’s:
444 ánthrōpos – man, also the generic term for “mankind“; the human race; people, including women and men (Mt 4:19, 12:12, etc.).
444 (anthrōpos) relates to both genders (male and female) as both are created in the image of God – each equally vested with individual personhood and destiny (cf. Gal 3:28). Accordingly, the Bible uses 444 (ánthrōpos) of a specific man, woman, or class (type, group) of people – i.e. mankind in general (inclusive of every man, woman and child; see also 1 Cor 11:7).
We can easily see how the statues are an ambitious project designed to pay homage to (worship) MANKIND and his technological accomplishments. Now here’s the passage in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 that’s often used to support a single man antichrist:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thess 2:1-4)
Verse 2:3 gives us a clue as to when we might see this man arise. “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first“
Now, we certainly see a falling away from biblical truth in our day, so we have to be careful not to jump to conclusions. John wrote somewhere between 95 and 110 AD that the spirit of antichrist was already at work in the disobedient.
“Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.” (1 Jn 2:18)
Wait a minute. John thought it was the last hour? The last hour without the restoration of Israel to the promised land? The last hour without Transhumanism and giants and angel/hybrids like in the days of Noah? The last hour without a vaccine to stamp us with the mark of the beast? Surely John was mistaken! Dispensationalism would have us believe that he just didn’t understand proper eschatology and neither did the Reformers. But, no, John understood perfectly as did the Reformers, many of whom were far better versed in scripture than today’s self proclaimed “prophecy experts.”
We need to keep in mind that prophecy is to be spiritually interpreted and would have made sense to those in the early church as much as it does today. The book of Revelation was given as a message of comfort and hope during a time of intense persecution, ultimately promising victory for the oppressed. What kind of hope would it have given the early church to think of some far off fulfillment in 2000 years? None. The book depicts the entire church age, not just a seven year period at the end of it, and the same (antichrist) spirit that was at work in the early church is still at work today. In that light, we should expect to see this falling away manifesting in the natural throughout the church age.
We can see the falling away in history. When Constantine joined Rome’s pagan idol worship together with Christianity to form the Roman Catholic Church, many believers compromised their beliefs in order to finally live in peace after literally centuries of severe persecution. Does that sound familiar? It should, because that compromise has been ongoing ever since. Pure Christianity, pure faith was compromised to become yet another religion with pagan ritual, idols and holidays. And while the true church, consisting of individual, blood-bought, born-in-spirit believers continued, grew and thrived in face of waves of persecution both by the Roman church and atheistic governments throughout the church age, we’re undeniably seeing an intensifying of false doctrines leading to an even greater falling away today.
Both times that the phrase “son of perdition” is used in the Bible, it refers to someone who claimed to follow Jesus, but was really antichrist in their beliefs and actions. ( John 17:12, 2 Thess 2:3 ) The “son of perdition” is someone who would deceive within the church.
I keep saying that satan is after our perception. He wants to be worshipped, which he is accomplishing through the promotion of atheistic “science” as an empirical, non-religious reality created by the knowledge of man. And if this statue is not the epitome of mankind celebrating/worshipping mankind, I don’t know what is. Just as the “mark of the beast” is spiritual, referring to submission to the god of this world throughout the church age, yet is currently being played out as a physical mark according to the constructed timeline, people may be missing the true significance of this exhibit because they’re looking for a single man of lawlessness.
The book of Revelation refers to two beasts: The beast from the sea and the beast from the land. The beast from the sea is antichristian government. I highly recommend William Hendriksen’s commentary on the book of Revelation “More Than Conquerors.” On pages 148 he writes:
“The second beast symbolizes false religion and false philosophy in whichever form these appear throughout the entire dispensation…” (bold added)
Commanding the worship of statues is not new. It has been used throughout history. We first read about Nebachudnezzar’s statue in the story of Daniel. The Roman’s used statues to exact worship. From More Than Conquerors:
“The priests of the pagan temples did their utmost order to impress on the minds of the people the lie of satan; Caesar is Lord! They even resorted to tricks and pseudo-miracles in the various districts to make statues in honour of the emperor. Think of Pergamum. Whoever refused to perform an act of worship in front of such a statue or whoever refused to say ‘The emperor is Lord’ was put to death. Does the apostle actually intend to tell us that in his day pagan priests, in order to entrench the state religion or emperor-worship more firmly in the minds of the people, would resort to the tricks of causing fire to burst forth without apparent cause and, by the art of ventriloquism, cause speech to issue from the emperor’s statue? Or do these details belong merely to the picture and must we assign a symbolical interpretation to them? Either way, the dispensation – and in an increasing manner as the coming of the Lord draws near – false prophets, by showing great signs and wonders (Mt. 24:24), shall try to deceive the masses and to strengthen the hand of the government when it bears down upon the Church. [No question of such a trick being played with our modern statues.] Notice, however, verse 15: ‘And it was given unto him.’ Beyond the sphere of God’s permission satan can do exactly nothing!” – More Than Conquerors – Hendriksen,1940, pgs 148-149.
There are so many other things I could go into regarding The Giant. One being amusement.
The Giant is a member of the IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions)
Origin: A borrowing from French. Etymon: French amuser.
Etymology: from the old French à muser – to put into a stupid stare
I. To distract, and related senses.
transitive. To divert the attention of (a person) in order to mislead; to distract from the facts or real state of affairs; to delude, cheat, deceive. Now archaic and rare.
III. To occupy, entertain, and related senses.
transitive (reflexive). Originally: to distract oneself from more serious matters by indulging in a pleasurable pastime. Later (without suggestion of trifling or time-wasting): to engage in an activity for relaxation or amusement; to occupy or entertain oneself. Frequently with by, with.
The Bible tells us to remain “sober and alert” (1 Pet 5:8) “redeeming the times because the days are evil.” (Gal 3:13) Not that we aren’t to have joy in this world, but that we are not to give our minds over to “amusement.” That’s a bitter pill when we consider the television viewing hours of the average household and time spent scrolling through social media on our cell phones and tablets.
Amusement and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations
History teaches us (if taught correctly) that there is a definite pattern to the rise and fall of civilizations. This pattern is laid out in an article called “The Eight Stages of the Rise and Fall of Civilizations”:
- From bondage to spiritual growth
- From spiritual growth to great courage, discipline and virtue
- From courage to liberty
- From liberty to abundance It is at this abundant stage that the fall begins. People become self-centered, fulfillment seeking, obsessed with amusement to avoid thinking about unpleasant realities rather than holding onto ideals and virtues.
- From abundance to complacency
- From complacency to apathy
- From apathy to dependence
- From dependence back to bondage (source is a catholic website so this is not an endorsement but I think the presented progression is comprehensive.)
Giants and Myths
Another thing about The Giants is how they fall right in line with the current popularity of the book of Enoch and the fallen angel/human hybrid narrative that I wrote about several years ago. I don’t necessarily agree with the Youtube creator’s conclusions, but here’s an excellent video scrutinizing what we’ve been taught about giants in the Old Testament:
Finally, I just found this interesting:
Gods and Robots: Myths and Ancient Dreams of Technology
“Inside the exhibition space, visitors will engage with The Giant Experience, a series of exhibits which offers an absorbing journey into the world
of giants from the realms of legend and mythology, to a celebration of the extraordinary men and women – and unsung heroes – of the city and
country it’s located in; its inventors, scientists, artists, leaders, athletes, and game changers from the past to the present.”
With the literal flood of deception that’s upon us today, we must do all we can to keep from getting caught in the “end times” script and being deceived. Be in the Word! Walk by faith not by hype!
