The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse Reviews

    There are a few fundamental ideas I derive from Heron’s book. They are:1-How could a math-wonder, the size of ten football fields and twelve stories high, like the Giza pyramid*, be built by normal men? Only an advanced civilization could have done it, thus believes Heron. 2-Studies show that the Giza pyramid forms alignments with some major stars (Orion, Sirius, Draco and Ursa Minor). It’s located at the “exact center of the world”. To Heron, these alignments “foretell” a future.3-Adding to the pyramids, Heron calls the attention to other constructions throughout the planet in Asia and America. Of special importance he cites the Temple of Jupiter in Lebanon, with stone blocks weighing 900 tons each.4-One of his most daring hypotheses (a certainty to him, I’d say) is that the Giants (Nephilim/fallen angels) were in charge of these constructions.5-A firm-believer in the Bible (also in the book of Michael Drosnin**), Heron defends that the Bible is a 30% prophetic book; 85% of the prophecies have already been fulfilled, with 100% accuracy. 6-So, what’s next? (the remainder 15% of the prophecies). Heron believes in a Holy Jerusalem not cube shaped, rather PYRAMID SHAPED. *once with a "capstone of gold". **The Bible Code

    I've read this story before... it was in Robert Doherty's "Area 51" series. Wait that's a Science Fiction novel and this is the truth... I don't think so. Every time I write a bad review, I get responses like "but they're good people" or "but they're nice." It really doesn't matter if they release a heavily flawed product, in my opinion. I love reading history books and I even go to the lengths that I really like reading about the occult. I will even be open minded enough to entertain some of the possible Alien theories in relation to technological advancements of the early humans or even an Atlantis theory. But seriously, this book is ridiculous in its assumptions. I initially picked this book up in hopes to read more about the Nephilim and was hoping to find a new connection between them and Egypt; I must say I was quite disappointed. The grandiose culmination of this research results in some far off extrapolated theory that Satan is an alien that built the pyramids because he wanted to mock Heaven. I mean, I can't honestly think of another reason you can't prove. This is almost as bad as the book I read about Atlantis where the author's main proof of the history came from a psychic who communicated with the Atlantean people... through his mind. The author takes parts of the Bible then suppositions them into other areas that "may" prove what he's talking about and couples them with other myths. This is the same kind of cookie cutter logic that Christians present me with in arguments about Jesus' validity as the son of God, rather than being based on conjectures and hearsay. Researchers seriously need to consider the passages as a whole, rather than a single word here that refers to this other passage a thousand years later and therefore that earlier passage is a prophecy! Oh my god! I would think a person with their doctorate would not support this limited view of thinking, but for some reason it's considered "revolutionary" and helps to find hidden secrets. All it does is blow out of proportion the interpretation. It gives researchers and followers limitless ability to interpret anything the way they want; hence there are now millions of books on such subjects. As Craig Hines has already pointed out, the word Lucifer is not Hebrew and yes, he referenced the correct Hebrew. However, Hines could've gone a little more in depth with his commentary on this; and the fact that he didn't bring it up makes me wary of his book. However, I do intend to read it and review it as I have read this one, Hines at least appears to have done his research far more correctly. Lucifer's origins date back to Roman times; from the research I've followed on this, it was the name of Venus. Venus is the "morning star". The translation of the passage in Isaiah that references "Lucifer" in post-Christian translations pulls this name from Latin. It's possibly a proper-noun in Hebrew, but I have found no evidence to support this in the original passage. And if you read the whole passage that this verse is found in, it is in reference the king of Babylon. So it's no secret as to who this "Satan" or "Lucifer" is... it's the king of Babylon. It's an analogy of someone falling from a very high point, because it's in reference to the fall of Babylon. I don't consider myself a genius, so it does not take a genius to figure this out. I have the updated edition of this book... this error is at least still in there. This is what happens when mistranslations take place in ancient history. People go berserk with "hidden wisdom". I found the Biblical research to be the shoddiest part of this book; it's as if the author has never read any Hebrew commentary before. I would recommend the author pick up a copy of the Etz Hayim, at the very least, to start delving into what some of these things mean. I'm not going to go on a long dissertation about the minutiae errors, on top of what has already been mentioned. I am merely illustrating one point that really stood out to me. For those seeking true insight into the Hebrew legend of the Nephilim... don't read this book. It really offers nothing for you. If you want to read about far reaching figments that may or may not involve a grand alien conspiracy, then this book is surely something you should read.

    This was my first book by Patrick Heron. I came across it as I was doing some personal research on the biblical subject of the Nephilim. Let me say first that the author does a good job of presenting a clear Gospel message, which, in my opinion, deserves praise. I believe throughout the author's intention is to be faithful to the Lord and the Scriptures which I appreciate. However, good intentions do not always guarantee that the author acheives that goal of being biblical. His gospel is clear, and his theology appears to be biblical, but he seems to blaze a new trail in how he arrives at those doctrines he espouses. Overall I think the book has merit as it presents good information in regards to the Nephilim, and eschatology. In fact, I agree with his thesis that the "sons of God" are indeed angelic beings, and I also hold to a pretribulational/premillenial rapture of the church. However, I believe the book makes some serious leaps of logic at points. The author is faithful to say a few times that what he presents is conjecture. That is to be appreciated. However, the author makes a number of statements throughout the book that he never takes the time to verify sufficiently. Either they are generally accepted in the circles he runs in, or in the authors he reads, but many of the statements seem to be made with the author feeling no compulsion to verify his facts. There are a number of ideas he presents, but in those ideas he seems to stand almost alone, such as the Nephilim actually being the angels themselves, rather than the offspring of angelic/human interbreeding. In this idea and several others he seems to stand alone. He also bases his size calculations on a cubit of 25+". Patrick Heron assures the reader that though there is some disagreement about the size of a cubit, 25+" is the generally accepted measurement. However, I have yet to find another author, theologian, archaeologist,or scholar that backs his statement about a 25" cubit. The book has a number of such problems that detract from the author's credibility. This reader would also be interested in knowing where the fossils are that would back his theory that the world was filled with mutant human/animal hybrids. No attempt is made at explaining the glaring lack of them. Even one would lend some credibility to him. I believe the author's purpose would have been better served had he taken the time to find other sources to back his theses other than E.W. Bullinger's Companion Bible from where he draws the vast majority of his interpretations of certain words and facts. His book seems to be little more than a regurgitation of E.W. Bullinger's material.The author also leans heavily on the apochryphal book "The book of Enoch," but he never helps his reader understand what parts of the books are inspired, in his opinion, and which are not. For instance, the Watchers are said to be those that left their first state to become physical beings capable of cohabiting with human women. However, those same passages state that their offspring were giants between 450 and 11,250 feet tall (depending on which translation you read). These ideas are clearly fantastic, but the reader is never given insight into which portions are to be considered trustworthy. If the portions support the author's beliefs, they are to be believed, if they detract from his theory or call into question his theories, they are simply ignored. He presents some very interesting ideas, but I believe Patrick Heron could have done more to back his ideas if he indeed believes they have merit. Though his ideas are indeed interesting, I think he needs to do more to shore up his concepts. If you are looking for a book on the subject of the Nephilim, you will find this book interesting and may gain some insights from it. However, you may be left feeling like, "Where's the proof?"

    The first half of the book is about the Nephilim and the Pyramid...but the last portion of the book is a review of eschatology..It's a good read but I expected more of the subject throughout the whole book.

    Huh! Picked this up on a whim one night at the bookstore. I was intrigued by the title and have long been curious about what the Nephilim might have been especially when so many church scholars gloss over the "strange" passages of Scripture. To my surprise the book was way more heavily Bible-based than I expected. (a nice surprise) I'm willing to accept the premise as possible given the scientific evidence, or lack thereof, for the building of many superstructures of ancient times. I'd suggest the author edit out the "look how bad our world is" fear that this generation "will witness the return of the Messiah". Has he not at least studied the 14th century? If we can skip that, then it's a worthwhile read.

    I first heard about this wonderful Irish author while listening to Coast-To-Coast years ago. Mr. Heron is an interesting and well-spoken man who has penned an interesting account about the proof of the existence of ancient race of giants who help built the architectural and engineering marvels of the ancient world and whose visages are still in existence in the ancient writing of extinct civilizations. Mr. Heron's narrative style helps this to be an engrossing read. Anyone who reads this will learn of the ancient men of glory and the giants such as Goliath, Og of Bashan and the ancient enemies of the Israelites. The author also ties in the nephilim and their role in history, prophecy and the end times. Mr . Heron peppers the promise of the Lord to stop the nephilim and rapture us away. There is also the expected and mandatory invitation to accept Christ as one's personal savior. It is done without imposition and much love. This is not hyperbole but a marriage of faith and facts that will be appreciated by students of prophecy and biblical history. The one criticism I have of the book is that the 'pyramid of the apocalypse' (New Jerusalem) is only mentioned and elaborated on in the second to last chapter yet it is in the title of the book.

    Was looking for more insight into the Nephilim but this was not the right read in my opinion. The first part of the book dug into the scripture relevant to the Nephilim and other mentions of giant people including Goliath that the author made argument for being ancestors of the Nephilim and it was palatable. He argues that depictions on ancient manuscripts and engravings of half man / half animal monstrosity were the makings of this race as well and that the flood was intended to wipe them off the face of the earth. In the end he makes the stretch that the pyramids were all created by Satan and the Nephilim to mock the heavenly domain on Earth and made his predictions for the end times. Difficult at best to build some resemblance of proof in his far fetched ideas but even giving him credit for that hard tasks this really seemed to be reaching and jumping to unjustified conclusions.

    Currently listening to this on Audible and am about 1/2 way through. The author is the narrator and he is clearly reading the book and is pretty monotone. His thick Irish accent is also making it hard to follow.While I've read/listened to a few of similar topic, there seem to be only a few passages that are poured over and over and some of the "conclusions" he's making are a bit of a stretch, in my opinion. He's also making connections to stars and the zodiac, which are fine, but he seems to be bending the zodiacal calendar to his whim - apparently LEO comes after VIRGO - so it's a bit confusing to follow. Not sure I'll finish it.

    Some interesting observations shrouded among bogus interpretations of the scriptures. The Most High took this guy out before he could write any more unscriptural books. From reading this rag, I see the author was deeply confused and probably thought the "Left Behind" series was part of scripture. RIP Patrick

    okay okay it is kinda weird but the man is well studied. I really did think it was an interesting concept to twirl around in my mind. Worth reading. maybe not agreeing with, or maybe agreeing with some.

    The first part started out interesting and very solid. He then dovetailed into end times and got away from the Nephilim.

    this book scared the daylights out of me and made me feel like everything was evil in this world. It is very informative. I can't say I agree with Heron's point of view.

    This was a very interesting book about how the pyramids line up with end times and the Biblical book of Revelation.

    Great information on the Nephilim but didn't like the timeline of prophecy...needs to be read with an open mind and curious thought to possibilities of the origin of good and bad angels.
