I'm sorry about last week. I've been dealing with some medical issues that finally overwhelmed me. But I did manage to get things up for you this week. So I guess we can pretend like it never happened?????
Maybe. Please with sugar on top??? (insert Bambi eyes here) :-)
Anyway, one of the reasons I write is to take me away from all that. So now that things are beginning to settle down (please God let them be settling down) maybe I can do that as well as keep things on track here. But again, please accept my apologies for not being able to get it to you when I promised.
So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy what you should have enjoyed LAST week. The next few installments of...
The Watcher's Guild: Sweet Nephilim
There was a great outcry in the angelic realm. What would these Nephilim be like? Would they take on their father’s characteristics and be superhumanly strong, wise and immortal? Or would they inherit the fragile bodies of their mother and be as human as she? Would they rise up against the Creator? Choose to pray to the false gods Satan was deceiving the humans with? Or would they bow down and worship Jehovah as they should. There was much debate before the Lord put up his hands, and said, simply,
So we did. We waited and watched, and we all held our breaths when the first Nephilim was born.
And our patience was justified. He became a man like no other. Tall and strong and brave, he became a hero of his people. God smiled because it was good, and those others born of the Fallen, became men and women of renown. Legends were sung about their bravery and courage, and the angels in heaven sighed in relief.
But, Satan, too, was watching and he saw the chance to further his nefarious schemes. He waited until a Nephilim came of age, and once the boy began to show his powers, he swept in and quite literally, took him under his wing. He corrupted the child and used him against the people of God. This Nephilim, called Goliath, wreaked havoc for many years before being defeated by a young boy with a sling, a sharp stone and an abundance of faith.
When Jehovah saw what had happened, he knew he couldn’t allow the offspring of the sons of God to join with Satan. Man had already become so wicked, so sinful, there was little left of his original beloved creation. And so, grief wringing his soul, the Lord destroyed them all, except for a few righteous men and women.
But, the Fallen could not die. They might have been banished from God’s presence, but they were still immortal. After the flood, they too were part of the Creator’s new beginning. More Nephilim were born. This time, though, the Lord had a plan.
And so, the Watchers’ guild was born.
Ok! There you have it. Remember the contests going on and since I've pushed to get all this week's installments up, hopefully (crossing fingers) I haven't forgotten anything. Thanks for your patience and I'll see you again on Wednesday with another short installment of this fun fantasy romance!!!
