154 GIANTS IN THE LAND

                                                                  154 GIANTS IN THE LAND

I was recently challenged as to there being giants living in the days of King David, especially the one known as Goliath.  I feel that pictures are worth more than a thousand words, so I’m sending you to see a picture of the giants that lived near Gath, Goliath’s home.  The Egyptian Rameses II wall relief (a very large image carved in stone) shows two captured Canaanite Shasu Warrior giants from the area where Gath was found in 2015 being beaten with rods by Egyptian soldiers. Look up Rameses II Sashu warriors being beaten by Egyptians. These warriors lived during the days of Joshua, who reported that there were giants in Canaan that made the Israelites appear like grasshoppers. These soldiers were captured in the mountain passes of Canaan which is where Goliath would eventually be born in Gath. Goliath lived in Gath with his four giant brothers when the battle began between him and king David.  David killed Goliath in battle, according to the Bible. Goliath is thought to have been nearly nine feet tall. This carved stone image is pretty convincing evidence that the Bible is right about there once being giants in the land. There is another Egyptian report from general Horus about encountering Shasu Warriors in a Canaanite mountain pass.  It is called the Egyptian ‘Anastasi Papyrus’.  General Horus made a dispatch back to Pharaoh that he fought with these giants, stating in this report that the giants were anywhere from 7’6” to 9” tall.  The Anastasi Papyrus would have been written shortly after the Israelites departed from slavery in Egypt on the Exodus, and when Joshua was leading them to conquer Canaan. Look at the massive physic of the warriors in the Rameses II carved stone image compared to the skinny Egyptians. Who can doubt that these men would be called giants? Notice that to make the Egyptians look taller their legs have been exaggerated in comparison to their bodies.  I have hundreds of such images, coming from archaeological discoveries, in my saved pictures. Many have stated that Goliath was a fictional character, including the belief of him being a Giant. When Gath was discovered in 2015, pottery was found in one of the homes bearing the name of ‘Goliath’.  With the accumulated knowledge that is being brought forward by archaeological discoveries, one can hardly dispute that Goliath was not only real, but a man up to nine feet tall. The ruins of Gath where the pottery was found was dated to about 930 B.C.  This is exactly when David was said to have fought and won a battle with Goliath. Gath was burned by the Israelites at that time. The ash layers show that this is true. History records that Gath was later lived in again after that battle, but would never be the same. It’s a shame that most pastors are not aware of the discoveries in archaeology that could bear proof for nearly all stories in the Bible. This would include Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (look up Lazarus second tomb Cyprus), The story of Jonah going to Nineveh to preach repentance (as found within the library of King Ashurbanipal of Nineveh, which includes 30,000 written tablets), and much more. On the stone coffin of Lazarus are these words, “Lazarus, friend of Jesus, once dead four days”. I have nearly six hundred radio presentations that I am about to put on this website over the next years. Look for them and the written presentations. This website has remained dormant for a while but we are about to reinstitute it. Tell your friends that we are at evidenceforthehope.org or at Evidence for the Hope Ministries.  Enjoy the pictures.  Have a nice day
