I think it's generally true, if not competely. I remember running into these names quite often in my recent readings through the Scriptures. Here is a non comprehensive list I threw together to help those who are curious to see these names in Scripture for themselves. This list doesn't include all the names that end in *im, just those groups of *ims.

Cherubims (Ge 3:24; Ex 25:18-20,22; 26:1,31; 36:8,35; 37:7-9; Nu 7:89; 1Sa 4:4; 2Sa 6:2; 1Ki 6:23,25,27-29,32,35; 7:29,36; 8:6-7; 2Ki 19:15; 1Ch 13:6; 28:18; 2Ch 3:7,10-11,13-14; 5:7-8; Ps 80:1; 99:1; Isa 37:16; Eze 10:1-3,5-9,15-16,18-20; 11:22; 41:18,20,25; Heb 9:5)
Seraphims (Isa 6:2,6)
Rephaims (Ge 14:5; 15:20; 2Sa 5:18,22; 23:13; 1Ch 11:15; 14:9; Isa 17:5)
Zuzims (Ge 14:5)
Emims (Ge 14:5; De 2:10-11)
Anakims (De 1:28; 2:10-11,21; 9:2; Jos 11:21-22; 14:12,15)
Horims (De 2:12,22)
Zamzummims (De 2:20)
Avims (De 2:23; Jos 18:23 [this one I question a bit])
Caphtorims (Ge 10:14; De 2:23)
Nethinims (1Ch 9:2; Ezr 2:43,58,70; 7:7,24; 8:17,20; Ne 3:26,31; 7:46,60,73; 10:28; 11:3,21)
Lubims (2Ch 12:3; 16:8; Na 3:9)
Sukkiims (2Ch 12:3)
Mehunims (2Ch 26:7; Ezr 2:50)
Cherethims (Eze 25:16)
Gammadims (Eze 27:11)

Pretty interesting to consider where the *ims come from, and then see two types of angelic beings named with names that end in *im.

Peace and Love,
Stephen

That is interesting. I started Googling around and found this article by John Morris at ICR:

http://www.icr.org/article/540/

What caught my attention about this article was that Morris speculated that Satan's angels may have performed selective breeding to produce giants. Then he ties it to today's experiments in genetics and Christ's warning that the end days would be like Noah's day. There just might something to this.

I think so. I also think it's very strange that those who claim to have been abducted by aliens say that the aliens collect tissue samples and or human seed.

Man I can't believe I'm talking about this. I hope it's ok to talk about this here.

Peace and Love,
Stephen

Hahaha yeah brother, there are things going on in the universe that are a little "beyond the pale," but then again the Bible talks about some crazy stuff happening.

There is more going on than the average Christian thinks; from UFOs, extraterrestrials and things like that to political forces, satanic influence in government and others, there are forces at work beyond our wildest imaginations.

all of it is preparation for the one world anti-christ government and that personal incarnation of Satan himself.

if the conspiracy theory guys like David Icke, Alex Jones (a christian) would get saved or right with the Lord, they would see the truth is written in the pages of the KJV Bible

I agree fully withthe above link message of Dr Morris

Something caught my eye in that ICR article,

"Obviously we cannot speak with certainty, for the Bible gives little detail. At the very least, Satan's demons could have selected and indwelt certain men and women, and performed selective breeding experiments to produce over the generations a race of giants. (He could have done the same with animals too, and maybe that's where some of the unthinkable features we see in the fossil record come from."

What is he talking about in the fossil record?
Maybe this...

I've seen skulls like that before at Ooparts.


http://www.s8int.com/index.html


Fascinating site, there are over 80 pages of ancient art showing dinosaurs, it would be very difficult to deny that men lived with dinos in the recent past.

But click on the left "There Were Giants In the Earth in Those Days"




Someone mentioned UFOs, you will probably think I am the crazy after my post on Fortune Cookies, but I have also seen UFOs several times in my life, twice very close up.

I personally believe UFOs are real, but not what the public thinks they are. I think they are demons meant to deceive the unsaved.

I have a personal theory, that the Rapture may be similar to when Paul was on the road to Damascus. He saw and heard the Lord, the others with him did not. When Christians are taken out of the world at the Rapture, I think it might be similar. Many people will suddenly be missing. I think that Satan will convince the world that UFOs took the people away.

Want to read a truly fascinating article on the relationship between demons and UFOs read here:

http://www.boudillion.com/lam/lam.htm

I think this article makes lots of sense. I also think it quite the coincidence that the modern UFO age started just as Israel became a nation again.

I wonder if that is the skull of a satyr. Perhaps the biblical satyrs are something else, but I always thought they were half goat half men type things with horns.

I checked the link, and I found it SO disturbing! Anyway, I do believe they were giants as I believe the Bible. Kent Hovind has a good theory as to why people grew up so much in times past. You guys should out his seminars :

As for the horned people (mentioned in the first link) and UFO's, I don't have a clue. I used to believe in UFO when I was lost, but now that I'm saved, I don't. The whole UFO deal could just be a distraction or the strong delusion that God sends on the last days.
