Watchers are a type of angel, high in the hierarchy of angelic beings. The most frequently mentioned watchers in the Bible are the ones first mentioned in Genesis chapter 6. They are the fallen angels. They came to earth and began “taking women” impregnating them to produce giant babies, the nephilim. The word nephilim means the “fallen ones”, further indicating that their fathers were fallen angels.
The particular word for the “watcher”, who gives King the message from God in his dream used in Daniel chapter 4 is used no where else in the entire Bible! There must be something different about this watcher, or type of watcher, since it is a different word. I have spent hours researching and still know little about because surprisingly, to me at least, no one seems to know much about them? In Daniel 4:23 KJV it says, “the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven”. I can only deduce since the watcher was issuing the decree of God that unlike the others, this watcher at least, did not rebel against God, and was not a fallen angel. The good part about this particular kind of watcher being so mysterious is that is leaves room for imagination 🙂 There are several other cool things about this verse that are a mysterious as well like why does the KJV have ‘and a holy one’ implying that there was a watcher and a holy one?
There are also fascinating connections between the time of Noah in Genesis 6 and the end times according to Matt 24: 37 – 39, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Of all the distinguishing points to make about the end times, Jesus says it will be as it was in the days of Noah. And the only unique thing about the days of Noah compared to many other times in history is the watchers getting women pregnant and the children being part fallen angel and part human. Author, Speaker & Researcher LA Marzuli believes that the increase in alien sightings and human abductions is the watchers coming again to create more nephilim. He has created films and books, and has many you tube videos chock full of proof gathered from all over the world.
Here is a short introduction on the fascinating topic – check it out!

One of my favorite things about reading is that I get to use my imagination to see the characters, places, and events that happen in a story. One of the main things to help me decide if I am interested in reading a story is if I can visualize some part of it. Perhaps it is set in a place I’ve always loved, or I am curious to visit? Perhaps the main character has curly hair, like me, so I already feel a connection,… you get the idea.
As a writer, using pinterest helps me to compile pics of different people, places, things, and animals which I then combine to create the characters, scenes, and props in the story. Plus, before I started using Scrivener, it was a very fast way to go back and double-check if the horse is supposed to white, roan, or dapple 75 pages later! Now that I am using Scrivener, I simply pull the best from pinterest into my chapters.
So without further ado – welcome to the pinterest page for King.
I have boards like;
- Music to inspire – featuring music from that time played with traditional instruments, nice to listen to while writing or reading
- Characters – a collection of pics used to create each character
- Connection to Now – there are many connections between ancient Babylon and now (Bagdad, ISIS, current events etc,..)
- Neighborhood Finds – Scenes from around the palace, Ishtar Gate, Hanging Gardens etc,..
- My Style – snippets of accessories and fashion for different characters
- Favorite Places and Spaces – pics combined to create fictional locations in the book
- Everyday Things – collection of artifacts that would have been used during the story
- Books to read – other great books that inspire my writing
Explore, enjoy and happy pinning 😉

Exhale – a release of breath, a necessary part of breathing. But there is another kind of exhalation – the release that comes with letting an emotion (sorrow, anger, even laughter) out.
I see a strong juxtaposition between Daniel and King in the story when it comes to exhalation.
Daniel is a rock, steady, able, faith-filled, and faithful. He takes breath in and exhales it, using it to his advantage and keeping it controlled.
King on the other hand is a firecracker, an explosion waiting to happen, a mass of energy tightly coiled like a spring ready to explode at any moment. he is so tense, and full of anxiety he doesn’t ever take deep breaths nor experience the satisfaction of a long exhale. The way he exhales is by exploding.
Rather than bringing peace and restoring his body for another breath and more life – his exhalation brings violence and destruction, sometimes even hurting himself in the process.
It makes me think of the connection between what we take in and what comes out of us; air, food, words, thoughts… If you take in life, truth, oxygen, good food, kind words you feed your body and you remain strong and healthy. If you take in lies, death, negative words, bad food, smoke, and destruction you are hindering your body’s ability to restore itself and you are killing yourself.

What does being lost even mean? Not found? Not aware where it is? Is it only about location?
There are several things lost in this story; the biggest is in the first sentence of the elevator pitch – King Nebuchadnezzar’s mind is lost.
Apparently time has something to do with the definition of being lost because while something can genuinely be lost – it doesn’t have to stay that way, and can genuinely be found again, thus making it found 🙂
How can someone lose their mind and then find it again? What is that like? Do they have help? Are they even aware their mind is lost?
What do you think? Did King know his mind was lost? Would you know if yours was?
