“They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” Hebrews 11:37-40.
This is not meant to be confused with ‘The Men of Renown’ as specified in Genesis 6:4 which reads as follows:
“The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, The Men of Renown.” (emphasis added)
“What has become of The Men of Renown?
In ages past there were men who did feats of strength and courage. They were set apart for My Purposes. They were thrown into prison with lions and they were not harmed.
They took on an entire army and destroyed them with the jawbone of an ass. They caused the heavens to withhold rain and called down fire from above.
These are those who wandered in deserts and withdrew unto lonely places because they were not welcomed by many. But now I can’t find any of these men of renown.
Now you have mixed with the world around you. Now you are like everyone else.
But in the times that are ahead, then there will be a resurgence of these men of old. For when your land is taken over, then you will need their courage.
For when the land is separated, and the armies of the east conquer your land, The Men of Renown will return.”
