When Mistigo and her dark magic emerge during postdiluvian days, neither her aunt Imma or others in their Canaanite village can measure her abilities. They cannot fathom that Mistigo’s power is strong enough to reach into the twenty-first century to influence her direct descendant, Michaela Cross.

As Mistigo grows, Imma harbors secret fears about her half human niece. Ancient days pass. Michaela is born and grows into an adopted, modern day child being raised in rural Kentucky. The little girl discovers her own magical abilities at six years old. They develop in strength and power as she matures into a woman.

Soon after Michaela embarks on a quest to determine her true identity, she is kidnapped. While in captivity, she discovers that not only is her father a Satanist, but he intends to assist with the birth of the Anti-Christ and he expects Michaela to support his cause.

GUEST POST

Were Nephilim real? Might they still be around?

What does the Bible say about them?

When man began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “my spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal, his days will be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward – where the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heros of old, men of renown. The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all of the time – Genesis 6:1-5.

Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people, they are stronger than we are,” and they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak came from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.—Numbers 13:30-33.

And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home--these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.—Jude:6 

What do I believe?

As a literal believer of the Bible, I think that approximately 4,000 years ago angels came to earth from Heaven, procreated with human women and the couples bore hybrid children called Nephilim who were half angel and half human. According to scripture, God considered their existence to be both evil and corrupt. These creatures wreaked havoc on the land and even on their own people.

Secondly, I believe that several of the ancient tribes of Israel were infested with the Nephilim bloodline to include the Anakim, Rephaim Horites, Emim and possibly the Zuzim. Evidence of this is scattered throughout the Old Testament.

I believe that God’s angels of today are magical beings who use God given gifts in their day-to-day ventures.
I further believe that the Nephilim bloodline has passed down throughout the ages and that some of us still carry that bloodline in our veins.

In the early days, I believe that God’s angels were supernatural creatures, each blessed with a quantity of magic. But when God’s male angels decided to defy God, marry and mate with men’s daughters . . . that pure, Godly magic turned black, it went dark, it became evil. The angels became demons and the offspring of the angels and woman came forth and were called Nephilim.

I’ve come to know that although the angels and their dastardly plight are mentioned in the Epistle of Jude, neither the Book of Enoch or the Book of Jubilees were canonized by the European Church.
