The Rephaim argument in the Nephilim theories

There is a biblical problem with the notion that the Rephaim 

will not rise in the resurrection of the dead. Aside from 

context indicating this only means "your enemies are down 

for the count," there is this passage clearly speaking of only 

humans, who are going to be struck down for worshipping 

false gods, and for mixing the worship of such with worship 

of YHWH, those who call on both YHWH and Malcham.

Note that it says they shall not rise again, clearly rising is 
about a group that has been damaged getting its act 
together to counterattack, it won't happen in these cases. 
This is not any context relevant to the general resurrection 
and Last Judgement, and Marzulli, Horn, Missler, et. al., 
read this into it.

"They that swear [take an oath] by the sin of Samaria 
[an idol], and say, thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, the 
manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and 
never rise up again (Amos 8:14)."

So clearly this phrasing "fall, and never rise up again," is
not about being soulless angel hybrid whatnot without any
eternal future good bad or indifferent.
