“Sons of Enoch” chapter 8

The Bible offers some ever so brief , yet intriguing passages about Enoch.  In light of the previously posted evidences and explanations showing the early church, and those of  the Second Temple Jewry being versed in the Book of  Enoch, I think it safe to look into the Book to see what,  if any light it may shed into our investigation of who may have actually been the designer, and or the builder of the Great Pyramid of  Giza. There are a few other resources that we will be looking into also, all of which  were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, and were apparently a part of the Jewish religious resources dating to the 4th  Century B.C.  yet obviously based on older sources. It is important to realize that much of the  parchment and writings especially on the outer-most part of the Scrolls were greatly damaged from centuries of exposure to the elements such as moisture. Further into the individual scrolls, however, as the experts unrolled them carefully and scientifically, a treasury of translatable ancient literature became real. The Bible itself  has already given much of what was found there,  in part,  as most of the writings  seem in line of the same narratives. Nonetheless, many of the stories are much more detailed and personal. Before continuing any further into any other area of study, book, or scroll,  I feel I should probably post a little of what the Bible says about the subject that we are about to introduce here, and that would be the “Nephilim”

Genesis 6

1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.  ( notice that this verse became the 8th verse in this passage )

One such book, or writing found among the Dead Sea Scrolls is known as the (Genesis Apocryphon.) Now, at the beginning of this scroll we find a very interesting conversation, or speech from Lamech, (Grandson of  Enoch & Father of  Noah) who was apparently, for what ever reason, ( possibly because the Nephilim problem was greater on Earth at that time than the Canonical Genesis 6 reveals to us ) perturbed, or concerned that the child that his wife was carrying might actually be the child of one of the:.. 

Now, here is where we hit another crossroad in our study,  so let me first just say that there are,  as I mentioned earlier,  pieces missing from the parchment, and therefore, in this first interpretation from:

John C. Reeves

Blumenthal Professor of Judaic Studies
Department of Religious Studies
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte

“Then I considered whether the pregnancy was due to the Watchers and Holy Ones, or ( should be ascribed ) to the Nephil (im), and I grew perturbed about this child.” vacat

In the John C. Reeves interpretation we see that the Watchers, or Holy Ones,  and the Nephilim, or Giants could very possibly be two separate races. Which correlates well with the words in the  Canonical Genesis 6 wording:  Genesis 6 :4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

In a different, more recent interpretation (with added paraphrasing) of this same parchment, by:

Paraphrase and comments by Lesley Faulk and Amanda Scott

We find a bit more information leaning to the Nephilim, or Giants being thought of  as the off-spring of the “Sons of God” as commonly believed in many scholarly circles, (though there are three major theories of belief on who the “Sons of God” actually were as we will soon see). Yet, this interpretation denotes an almost absolute assertion that the Nephilim were the off-spring of the Sons of God,  where as the Bible, or the Genesis Apocryphon, as you will see do not.

“I thought, in my heart, that the conception was the work of the Watchers the pregnancy of the Holy Ones and that it belonged to the Giants”

Our main goal here, as far as the subject of this study goes, is to learn how the Second Temple Jews viewed the Genesis story, and moreover, how they interpreted Pre-Deluge history and tradition.  Incidentally, let me point out that we can all take a deep sigh of relief, along with Lamech. The Bible, and the Genesis Apocryphon both make it very clear, that this child was absolutely not conceived of any form of  fornication, or forbidden act by the Sons of God, or the Nephilim, and Batenosh, who was Lamech’s wife, because this would have been Lamech and Batenosh’ first child: Noah

Nonetheless, what does this say for the rest of the people who were on earth just prior to God sending the great flood to destroy everyone except for the 8 people  allowed  to enter the Ark ? Apparently, as we will soon see, when the Bible said: And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, It was not just talking about some people, but the vast majority of  humankind by the time of the flood. And speaking of the Number 8, which is, as many of you already know the Biblical number for “New Beginnings”,  and the Ark being a foreshadowing of the wonderful Salvation plan of  God through Jesus, whose name equates in more than one way through the calculations of Gematria (the Hebrew alphabets letters are also represented by numbers ) to JESUS = 888. I can see this is adding up to a more in-depth visit into the land of Biblical numerical significance before we are through.  In the mean time, you may find it interesting that Lamech lived to the ripe old age of  777 years. Gods number for completion.  And quite frankly, if  you are wondering if this is all  leading up to seeing where the World is today on the ” Prophetic end time Clock ” …count on it.    ©

“Sons of Enoch” Chapter 2

[tweetmeme source=”sonsothunder” only_single=false]

What on earth is this guy talking about..?  That, I am sure is a question many of you are asking yourselves right about now. I must admit it is a good question, and not one that can be easily answered in just a few words.  However, I do have an answer to that very question, and the answer as we continue, you will see open’s the doors to many other questions as well as answer a few  like,.. just who on earth are these…

” SONS OF ENOCH”                                                                                                                                               Chapter 2

On a different note, or a different question anyway, the Great Pyramid was built nearly perfectly adhering to the four cardinal points of the compass — 2000 years before a compass was invented. Not to mention the closest building modern architecture has aligned to “True North” is 6 minutes from “True North”, where as the Great Pyramid is only 3  minutes from “True North.”  It has been proven through countless surveying, and geographical studies of the conundrum that the 3 minutes from  “True North” of  the Pyramids position  was due to a tectonic shift in land, or shifting sands  and not from the builders miscalculations. Of course there are varying explanations and questions about how these ancient Egyptians, who by the way were not really known as far as the historical data available to us today for their accuracy in astrology, prior to the 13th -17th dynasties were able to design such an insightful edifice. Actually, they are believed to have been down right backwards in their studies and knowledge of the stars and their alignments compared to others who lived during the times in which the Great Pyramid  was designed and erected. Nevertheless, the Great Pyramid was irrefutably constructed as a precise instrument of calculating, marking, and tracking celestial cycles, as I feel certain that you will agree by the time this study ends. (A study, by the way, intended only to explore and offer possibilities based on personal intrigue and inquisition, and by no means of dogmatic opinion). Although, the Dog-Star may rise up and bark now and then. No, wait, I meant the Dog-Star of Sirius, not my opinion…Oh, okay well probably both…But, they don’t bite.

The question then may arise in your minds as it did in my own about what historical documentation, if any, do we have on who may have been the best at the astrological arts or,  if  history even tells us where it began. Who invented star-gazing ? I suppose is the answer I am seeking. Does history tell us who the  inventor was, or the first astronomer, and, or astrologer ? And if  so, where can we find that information? The following is a written account from Flavius  Josephus, a historical writer in Rome who’s writings are widely accepted as first hand précis from the sacred books taken by the Romans while destroying the temple in Jerusalem, in 70 A.D.

JOSEPHUS

"Flavius Josephus"

The Jewish mythographer and historian Josephus (37 – c. 100 AD) writes in his Antiquities of the Jews: Now this Seth, [Adam’s third son] when he was brought up, and came to those years in which he could discern what was good, became a virtuous man; and as he was himself of an excellent character, so did he leave children behind him who imitated his virtues. All these proved to be of good dispositions. They also inhabited the same country without dissensions, and in a happy condition, without any misfortunes falling upon them, till they died. They also were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and their order. And that their inventions might not be lost before they were sufficiently known, upon Adam’s prediction that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and at another time by the violence and quantity of water, they made two pillars, the one of brick, the other of stone: they inscribed their discoveries on them both, that in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind; and also inform them that there was another pillar of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad to this day.  Above excerpt  from Wiki-Pedia 

( Or, Found in Last Paragraph of Chapter 2 of Book 1, Antiquities of the Jews )

(Can be found in many other documented sources of Josephus’ writings)  ie:   (Antiquities of the Jews -Book one )

Now, I  know what your next question is. Where is  Siriad ” ?  That’s another great question. Although,

“Dog Star Sirius”

there are varying beliefs about where Siriads location was  in ancient times, as there is no real pinpointed historical, or geographical record of the exact site,  it is most widely believed to have been a synonym for Egypt.  As seen here, in a “Quote” from Dave Ramsey’s study of the Lost Tribes of Israel:   This ‘land of Siriad’ is of those who worshipped the dog star Sirius, i.e. the land of Egypt.”

In a book published in part, from 1923-1927,  However,  titled:   ” The Deluged Civilization of the Caucasus Isthmus” by

Reginald Aubrey Fessenden, whom, prior to his book writing served as Head Chemist to Thomas Edison, Fessenden claims, and explains why he believes that Siriad was most definitely not in Egypt. It is a very interesting work to read, very descriptive, and informative of genealogies, focusing on the origin of the human race as  being in the Caucasus Mountain region, rather than the scholarly accepted African Basin (or, in Abraham’s case South East Turkey Region). Fessenden, was not dogmatic in his beliefs, and writings, but wrote the book to intrigue other scholars, and archaeologist to dig further into the possibilities of this Caucasus region being the mother land of civilization.  Although Fessenden does drive home some very convincing documentation and illustrations about why he believes that Siriad was not Egypt, at the same time, he does however believe that the Egyptian civilization, as all civilizations and races, according to him, originated in the west Caacasus Valley. He in fact goes as far in his writing with the Egyptian trace as to leave us with this very interesting passage of  historical documentation from :   Herodotus writing 450 B.C. 2;104; “There can be no doubt that the Colchians” (inhabitants of the west Caucasus Valley, which was all that the early geographers had knowledge of) “are an Egyptian race. Before I heard any mention of the fact from others I had remarked it myself. After the thought had struck me I made inquiries on the subject both in Colchis and in Egypt, and I found that the Colchians had a more distinct recollection of the Egyptians than the Egyptians had of them . . . . My own conjectures were founded, first, on the fact that they are blackskinned and have woolly hair . . . . I will add a further proof. These two nations weave ‘heir linen in exactly the same way, and this is a way entirely unknown to the rest of the world . . . . They also in their whole mode of life and in their speech resemble one another.”

Now, as to not leave you scratching your heads and wondering why I may seem to have been off on another rabbit trail from ( Where was Siriad located ), it’s probably a good time to point out that many believe that the “Great Pyramid” could very well be one of the two “Pillars” that the son’s of  Seth are said to have erected, (as noted in the earlier posting of the excerpt from “Josephus”). Quote: in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind; and also inform them that there was another pillar of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad to this day”.

First of all,  let me just say that I have done some research in that area, and I do not find that the “Great Pyramid”  is the Pillar of Enoch” which many have come to refer to the Pillars mentioned by Josephus. ( Though as we will see in a later chapter the possibility can not as of yet be ruled out) Although,  I do believe that much of the same information of the mentioned, inventions,  i.e.  Crafts of  Star Searching, are also built within the Great Pyramid as well as were left on the Pillars  constructed by the  Son’s of  Seth.

In light of all of this information, and especially now along with the clear non coincidental projection of the Mayan Calender coinciding with a 36,000 year cycle of the Earth,  Sun,  and stars, we can certainly not afford to assume that all there is to tracking constellations is some tired old pick-up line in a nightclub;

What’s your sign ” ?


But, if any of you still think this December 21, 2012  thing will be nothing more than the next ” Y2-K ” scare, I have a little one liner for you as well. I borrowed it from a well-known comedian named Bill Engvall, but it certainly seems appropriate for this particular time and space. So, without further ado, just so no one feels left out for not sharing the same view of what will take place in 2012:

"WHY'S IT END IN 2012" ? "I RAN OUT OF SPACE ON THE STONE"!

Here’s Your Sign>>>>>>

But seriously, from what I have gathered in my research of this ( 36,000 year Precession of the Equinoxes ) ; On December 21, 2012  @ precisely 11:11 A.M. a new dawning , or a change of the earth and life as we know it will only begin to take place. Nothing has been written in stone. ..Okay,.. that was bad timing…

Anyway,  it seems that even the most  e studious of  Maya Culture and astrological recordings, as well as most astrological scientist agree that things will begin to change in some way, form or fashion, and that this will only be the beginning of things to come. Which, I must admit brings to mind the words of Jesus in several places in the Bible while He was speaking to the disciples about the end of the age… what I call  “Birthing Pains”  (as that is what the correct original language alludes to) the beginning of sorrows.  I pray that all will look deeper into Jesus’ plan of salvation and see that with Him, there is absolutely nothing for anyone to worry about as far as the end of the age, the world, or life itself for that matter. Without Him, however, well, lets just say.  Good Luck.

To be honest, without doing a great deal of research in this area,  I have been able to absorb a lot of information and scholarly expectations about the Suns  projected 2012 alignment with the milky way, (The 36,000 year Precession of the Equinoxes) , and  though I made light of the situation just a bit before, it is interesting, ( whether it plays into the picture or not ) that the  Sun will have traveled and crossed paths with each and every one of the Zodiac Constellations, at some point  in the past 6,000 years.  And yes,  I did say all of that only to point out that there are (12) zodiac signs. Number 12, of course being the Biblical number for  (Divine Governing Completeness.)

Oh one other quick interjection from the words of Josephus: 

God afforded them a longer time of life on account of their virtue, and the good use they made of it in astronomical and geometrical discoveries, which would not have afforded the time of foretelling [the periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for the great year is completed in that interval.

Therefore it stands to reason that the number twelve, or it’s intervals should play into this overall study in many ways before we are through. Regardless of the significance, or of our understanding and full grasp of the significance that numbers play into the heavens and the earth’s revolution and orbital cycles, numbers, and mathematical equations including  ( Pi ) are readily found throughout the Great Pyramids construction and symbolism.

Of course, Pi, or II,  is certainly not a new concept, although many accredit  William Jones, ( 1675-1749 ) a self-taught Math teacher as the inventor of  (Pi ), it is a discovery, and not an invention. As we continue to look into the mathematical marvels found throughout the Great Pyramids structure, it will become more clear to you, as it has to me, that only  God could have been the designer of all the science, mathematical, architectural, and planetary encompassing wonders that hold this earth up in  mid-air on an invisible “Foundation” … In fact, as we see evidence to in the Pi measurements within the Great Pyramid, anyone can force a square peg into a round hole, but who but the creator of all things could design a 13 acre square building to equate in numbers, as not only a 13 acre square building, but amazingly, into a Square Circle ?

Similarly, discovered, and only by a pilot on a fly over, that the exterior walls of the Great Pyramid are con- caved to such a slight degree that its curvature can’t be seen by the naked eye while viewing the Pyramid from ground level. 

In light of this, and even much more astonishing, is the fact that after many investigations and calculations on the con-caved joints, which, parenthetically make this an 8 sided structure, rather than the formerly perceived 4 sided one, the curvature of the con-caves calculate to the same circumference as the curvature of the earth itself.  And, speaking once again of numerical significance, the number eight, is without question the Biblical number representing  a “New Beginning”. 

Much more to come, and though this chapter has been a little more to the light chit chat side of the subject at hand, prepare your self  for some very interesting facts, dates, names and adventurous revelations that take us one step closer to realizing who the Mayans called the four prophets from the stars from whom they received their “Prophetic Wisdom” of things to come may have been. And we just may find who the Son’s of  Enoch truly are.
