What were the lion like men of Moab, and why did the Bible differentiate them from actual lions? There are many verses in the Bible that should make us take a step back and wonder what exactly was going on in those times. Some of the stories are so outrageous that people just refuse to accept them at face value. Yet when we look back at history within the context of our time, we can understand some of the strange events in the Bible to be literal.
“And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew two lionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:” – 2 Samuel 23:20
What exactly were the Hebrews dealing with in the time of David? First we have Goliath and now two “lion like men” in the Moabite army. Interestingly, the verse goes on to point out that Benaiah slew an actual lion.
Was this some kind of hybrid abomination or is it simply a description? Looking at the original language usually sheds light on many of the events in the Bible. When we look up the Hebrew word translated as “lion like men”, we find the word:
- ariy’el: closely interpreted as “lion of God” or “lion of the gods”.
These creatures were considered to be Heroic warriors of the Moabites. When we talk about the events in Genesis 6, the usual stopping point are the Nephilim, but Genesis 6:12 states that all flesh had become corrupted.
Angels Corrupted Human and Animal DNA
If you have read or listened to anything that I’ve done in the past, you know that I think the gods of mythology were fallen angels attempting to usurp worship of God from mankind. Here we find a reference to a “lion of the gods”, yet it was still considered to be a man. The book of Jubilees offers a very strange explanation as to how this may have occurred.
“The Sons of God were sent down to teach mankind truth and justice; and for three hundred years did indeed teach Cain’s son Enoch all the secrets of Heaven and Earth. Later, however, they lusted after mortal women and defiled themselves by sexual intercourse. Enoch has recorded not only their divine instructions, but also their subsequent fall from grace; before the end they were indiscriminately enjoying virgins, matrons, men, and beasts.” – Jubilees 4:15, 22, 5:1
Although the book of Jubilees is not part of the Bible, it does give us insight into early Jewish belief as to what was actually going on both before and after the flood. This is one of the subjects I covered at the conference and in my new book. We really need to take a second look at what may have been going on in scripture. Often we are told something for so long that we just accept it without question. It is time for those that desire meat to stop accepting what they are told and start asking questions.
Something I constantly bring up is the Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act. For those that haven’t read it here is the link:

What’s really mind blowing is that reports like these are becoming more and more common. Check out this very brief list of stories about mixing human and animal DNA.

Human-Animal Hybrids Throughout History
It’s crazy how far human technology has come in the last couple of decades. The truly disturbing part is that hybrids like those mentioned above are only found in two places in history:
- The very distant past.
- Our current time.
Oh and those lion-human hybrids sightings I was telling you about earlier, those aren’t recent reports. They’re thousands of years old. Do you still think that you can tell the difference between “mythology” and modern science? There was a very good reason that I created the illusion of a modern report. It’s because way too many people automatically ignore any “strange” historical accounts and dismiss them as “mythology” as soon as they hear where the stories came from.
However, when I told the same story and backed it up with a few science articles and a news report from a reputable source, it didn’t sound like “mythology” at all. If this is your first time encountering this subject, I’m going to get you caught up very quickly.
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 1:9
Lion-Human Hybrids Around The World
History is full of strange creatures that modern man tries to conveniently explain away so that we don’t have to acknowledge anything potentially supernatural at all. The worst offenders are probably Christians in the mainstream church. One myth that we find scattered all over the world, and even in modern times, is the strange obsession with lion men.
“And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew two lionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:” 2 Samuel 23:20
I add the above only as a brief reference for those that don’t believe any other cultures actually experienced history outside of the Bible.
Lion Like Men In Nubia
Apedemak was worshiped in Nubia, but not much is known about him. He does have a couple of ways he is depicted though.
- A Single Head of A Lion
- Three Lion Heads and Four Arms.
If multi-headed hybrid beings sound farfetched to you, then consider the following verse in the Bible which describes creatures with four faces.
“And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.” – Ezekiel 10:14
Also make a mental note that one of those four faces is the face of a lion. Let’s hop on over to Egypt.
Lion Like Men In Egypt
Egypt is probably best known for its animal headed gods and other strange stories. One such god was Maahes. According to Wikipedia, he was associated with war, weather, knives, lotuses, and devouring his captives. Maahes, Bast, and all of the other cat-human hybrids had a cult in what was then known as Leontopolis (City of Lions), known today as Tell al Muqdam.
The first recorded reference to Maahes is between 16th – 11th century B.C. in Egypt. He had several titles which are pretty interesting as well.
- Lord of The Slaughter
- Wielder of The Knife
- The Scarlet Lord
I think it’s important to point out that Maahes is described as the son of a god (Ra) and a goddess (Bast or Sekhmet). I personally link the gods to the fallen angels, but where do the goddesses of mythology come from? Zechariah 5:9 may be able to shed some light on the possibility that there are indeed female angels.
“Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind [was] in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.” – Zechariah 5:9
Again, the verse doesn’t definitively say angels, but we don’t have any other examples in the Bible of any other being besides angels and birds that have wings. For a more in depth study on the goddesses of mythology, see my article, Goddesses: Female Angels, Female Nephilim, or Female Demons?
Lion Like Men In India
Narasimha was worshipped in India and is believed to be an avatar of Shri Vishnu. Don’t be confused by the movie or online jargon when it comes to avatars. The word is of Indian (India) origin and it refers to the manifestation or appearance of a god.
Every depiction and story surrounding Narasima shows a creature that is blood thirsty and requires a human sacrifice. As we continue into our study on hybrids, we’ll see that this is a recurring theme throughout the entire world. Let’s move on to Germany for one of the oldest archaeological finds that depicts a lion-human hybrid.
Lion Like Men In Germany
The oldest known sculpture in existence is believed to be about 32,000 years old. Lowenmensch (Lion Human), but there is no consensus as to whether it is male or female. It was carved from a mammoth tusk using a stone knife. Was Lowenmensch the result of an over active imagination or the result of a real life encounter with a lion man? We may never know.
I will also take this opportunity to point out that I don’t necessarily agree with the way archaeological finds are currently dated. There are lots of problems with the current system because it relies too heavily on too many assumptions. Now lets see if we can find a way in which all of these stories may be connected.

The Ties That Bind
These legends cover parts of Africa, Europe, and Asia. They come from the Egyptians, Nubians, Indians, Hebrews, and Russians, but how or why do they all have similar stories? There is one strange but intriguing piece of evidence that links them all together.
- Hebrews – Ariel (Name means, Lion of God or Lion of The Gods)
- Egyptian – Maahes (Born to a god and goddess)
- Nubia – Apedemak (Considered to be a god.)
- India – Narasimha (Believed to be the manifestation of a god.)
- Germany – Lowenmensch (Most scientists believe it represented a god).
All of these lion-men or lion-gods are associated with the gods of mythology, which I personally believe to be fallen angels. That is either the biggest coincidence ever or there is an organized conspiracy to get every culture on earth to talk about the same exact beings continuously throughout history.
When it comes down to it, we face a very real enemy that steps ahead of us when it comes to fighting the war on both celestial and terrestrial ground. Satan and his angels are not stupid when it comes to deception, and the deception going on today is that it is OK to blur the lines between what it means to be animal and human.
More Cat Human Hybrids
Here are three more lion-human hybrid’s from around the world. They didn’t quite make the above list, but they are worth mentioning.
- Were-jaguar: Just like the werewolf, except the person shapeshifts into a jaguar (Olmec – South America).
- Sekhmet – The lioness headed goddess, known as the fiercest hunter in Egypt (Egypt – Africa).
- Sphinx – The head of a woman and body of a lion, probably best known for handing out riddles to heroes on their quests.
I want to end this with a very odd warning from Christ concerning the end times. I want you to really think about it and consider the possible full implications of the verse before you go on about your day.
“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” – Matthew 24:22
