Sons of Enoch chapter 29— Forbidden Knowledge—

Owl_of_Minerva__symbol_of_bavarian_[1]

With all this talk of secret societies, shadow governments, world domination, mind and population control, —on and on, it can be completely overwhelming trying to absorb it all. Heaven forbid trying to make sense of it all. Especially if one has no prior personal studies in these areas. It’s imperative to have the inspiritment of something, or someone larger than a dark world bent on acquiring, practicing, and hiding such “secretive” knowledge for one to possibly come to grips with it all.

This is why many choose to ignore the obvious, writing every mention of such things off as conspiracy theories, conjecture, or fairy-tales.

Ultimately, rather than allowing themselves to become frightened, or overwhelmed by something they don’t understand, and refusing to address such things as the important social issues they clearly are, many will never come to know true peace.

I’ve wondered, and sought understanding about such things as “Secret” Societies, The End of the Age, and the potential imminence of a so-called—“New World Order,”—  for many years.

Honestly, they aren’t so secretive.

It’s said that George Bush senior was the first world-renowned political figure to coin, or reiterate the (Biblically Prophetic Term) “New World Order” when addressing the world, and nation, at the end of the cold war on January 16, 1991.

The fact is,.. Though not termed as such, Woodrow Wilson revealed he was very aware of said “Secret Societies,”  holding shadowed office’s of domineering  prominence, and  principalities, over all nations, and governments, just before instituting the 12 “Federal Reserve Bank System” that took monetary control over the world, back in 1913.

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”         “Woodrow Wilson”

  The Bible also clearly foretells such events, entities, and societies, in many places. Probably most notably in this ensuing verse:

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

This isn’t to say that all so-called “secret societies” are evil. Nor am I inferring the Bible is the only revealing source on such matters. Still and all, the Old Testament is irrefutably one of the most trusted, authoritative, repositories regarding historical events.

Historians from religious, secular, and academic circles, have relied on its chronological continuum for thousands of years, and many agree on its veracity of events, if not total historical accuracy of man’s existence. Among those relying on the Holy Bible, regardless of what their personal, or, collective agendas may be…are “Secret Societies.” 

Many “Secret Societies” practice occultism. They may not  brew up magic potions, alchemy, or even try to stay secret —The realSecret” is the hidden knowledge of old they attempt to tap into and use for their personal advancements.
 I  alluded earlier in this writing, erroneously, I might add, the words; “Heaven forbid,” trying to make sense of everything taking place, or rumored imminent this day and age. Because, that isn’t exactly correct, since the Bible, and its affiliate historical writings are precisely where certain secret societies learned of the alleged secret wisdom they pride themselves to posses..
 The irony?
The “Secret Knowledge” is what heaven forbade.  Or, more accurately, according to the book of Enoch, was knowledge not intended for the human race to learn about… At least: “Not At This Juncture”
“Wouldn’t Be Prudent”
 
That’s not to say the human race wouldn’t have eventually learned of the darker side of the supernatural,..       But Who Knows?
If man had not fore-taken of the fruit of the forbidden tree —“tree of knowledge of  good and evil” ( or the differences there-of ) then maybe the human race would never have come to know how to be evil.
From my personal studies in the matter it is quite plausible, just as the book of Enoch tells us, that fallen angels came to humans in many forms, and faces.
It seems persistent with mythological stories about so-called gods, and watchers from many diverse cultures across the world anyway.
Not only does the “Serpent-man” show up in the Genesis of everything in the “Garden of Eden” according to the Holy Bible, but, is even still worshiped in many places around the planet today.
Most descriptions, and legends, telling of the “Serpent god,” persist that he, nor his army of watchers have been seen for thousands of years. But, in almost all renderings of his alleged existence, he promised to return one day.
None of this information is all that secret as is plainly presented symbolically by most “Secret Societies.”
The Illuminate, eg;  is symbolized by the Owl of Knowledge, or, secret wisdom,.. the Owl of Minerva.

“Sons of Enoch” chapter 11

After seeing what the Book of Enoch has to say about the “Watchers”, or “Fallen Angels”, it is clear who the writer believed the Sons of God in Genesis 6:2-4  refers to. The Book of  Enoch, is not the only ancient writing  that named the “Watchers” as being the ones who had relations with the Daughters of  Men,  thereby giving birth to a whole new race, and a whole new way of  life on Earth. 

As we posted in an earlier chapter, the Genesis Apocryphon, found in the Qumran caves, (The Dead Sea Scrolls) gives credence to the second theory also. The Book of Enoch is not the only book that credits the “Sons of God” allusion in Genesis 6 to the Fallen Angels, and the term Nephilim, to the Giants. The  “Book of Jubilees,”  known to have existed as early as the 2nd century B.C., And as it was  in Ethiopian Canon, can easily be assumed to have been a part of the  Jewish religious studies earlier than the Second Temple Era.Sumerian Giant King

R.H. Charles, a translator of  both the “Book of Enoch” and the “Book of Jubilees” proclaimed the Book of Jubilees a version of the Hebrew Pentateuch, and has been found in large fragments in the languages of  Greek, Latin, and Syriac, though the only complete version known until now is  in the Ethiopian language. Much of the Book of Jubilees became incorporated into the first Greek Version of the Jewish Bible known as the Septuagint. The Book of  Jubilees, by many, including R.H. Charles, the renowned Bible Scholar of the 18th century, was believed an  important Jewish festival, and Calender  go – to  book.

Though it sticks much in sync with the Genesis narrative,  just as the Book of  Enoch,  it gives many more details, such as the names of the daughters of Adam and Eve. For our purposes at this time, however, we will only focus, and post what it has to say along the lines of Genesis 6:2-4.

Jubilees V-1 And it came to pass when the children of men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, that “the angels of God” saw them on a certain year of this jubilee, that they were  beautiful to look upon; and they took themselves wives of all whom they chose, and they bare unto them sons and they were giants.

Here again we find the second theory interpretation of the Genesis 6 account  the accepted belief, at least by some Jewish sects, if not all the Second Temple Era Jewish community. 

However, there is yet one other interpretation that is in question, and is gaining in popularity among many scholars today.  That one alludes that those who found the “Daughters of Men” beautiful, and took them as there wives, were of the Noble/Kingly line of antiquity. Let’s now take a look into that theory and see where it may lead us.

Although recent archaeological finds are said to have been discovered linking the term: Son of God to Royalty and Kings,  I have yet  to unearth the documentation.  I would assume, so don’t quote me on it, but, as almost ALL Royalty of the Antediluvian World would have attributed the birth, and reign of their King as being of the godly line, i.e. son of the gods, or as the later Romans, and Greeks claimed even to be gods, that most written Archaeological finds of  Royalty would have some references to “Sons of the gods“.  Regardless, this is still,  for what ever reason, a 3rd theory of who the Bible may have referred to when it stated ( Sons of God ) in Genesis 6, and therefore, we will take a  look into the possibility.

Here, I will just place the three theories into the proverbial hat of the three main manuscripts that most ( Conservative Bible Believers ) would decipher information from, and in summary, let the chips fall where they may on the subject. Quite frankly, without using the Book of Enoch,  and, or, other Apocryphal material such as the Book of Jubilees, or the Genesis Apocryphon, any conclusion on the subject of choosing one out of the three theories as a basis for absolute belief would still be based on sheer speculation. (Had Flavious Josephus not also specifically said they were fallen Angels)..

1.   In the Masoretic  ( Hebrew ) text, where from, the (James gang)  deciphered the King James Bible, we find this account:

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God (benei ha-elohim) saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. There were giants(ha-nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God (benei ha-elohim) came unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men (ha-gibborim) which were of old, men of renown.

2. From the LXX manuscript ( Greek ) From where we get  the Septuagint:

And it came to pass, when men began to be numerous upon the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God (hoi huioi tou Theou) having seen the daughters of men that they were beautiful took to themselves wives of all whom they chose. And the Lord God said, My spirit shall certainly not remain among these men forever, because they are flesh, but their days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Now the giants (gigantes) were upon the earth in those days; and after that when the sons of God (hoi huioi tou Theou) were wont to go in to the daughters of men, they bore children to them, those were the giants (gigantes) of old, the men of renown.

Note that the  LXX  manuscript specifies that the off-spring were the Giants, where the Masoretic only states that they were men of renown-mighty men.

3. From the Syrian, or St.Ephraims Commentary:

And it came to pass that when men increased and daughters were born to them, and the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they took to wife such of them as they chose. Then the Lord said, “My spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh, but his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. There were mighty men in those days, and also afterward, because    (judges) went into the daughters of men, they bore the mighty men who were of old, the mighty men of renown.

As you see, no two of these manuscripts agree totally, at least not in a discernible dialect. All three agree that the Sons of God found the Daughters of Men favorable, and consummated with them as their wives. However, only the LXX makes mention of the daughters giving birth to Giants, though they all mention mighty men of  renown. Then, there is of course the  sudden shift from what the previous two accounts call ( Sons of God ) to the Syriac Manuscripts wording of  (Judges), which of course would give credence to the third theory, that the(sons of God ) might be referring to Kings.  It is important to point out that the first theory, ( That the Sons of Seth mated with the Daughters of Cain ) has most likely gained much of  it’s  popularity from the Syriac Manuscripts as well, as we find  in St Ephraim’s Commentary on Genesis :

From John Bockman, Tokyo, Japan, of the : Holy Orthodox Church of North America:

“When I read St. Ephraim the Syrian’s “Commentary on Genesis,” which endorses the ( Seth – Cain) theory above, I was relieved that my three minutes of irksome thought had been rendered unnecessary. According to St. Ephraim, the line of Cain ceased to be productive, and rather than bearing male offspring, it produced only female offspring. The line of Seth, on the other hand, continued to produce robust males who, though they were “the righteous people of God,” were at any rate “stirred to a frenzy” over the women in the line of Cain.”

“For this reason the “tribe of Seth” declined and the “house of Cain” waxed strong with “mighty men.” Therefore, God gave mankind 120 years in which to repent or bear the consequences, i.e., the flood (pp. 134–137). This explanation seemed so neat until I found that the Codex Alexandrinus of the LXX refers to hoi angeloi tou Theou (the angels of God) and not to hoi huioi tou Theou (the sons of God). Oops! Back to square one!”

I  would have to agree with John Bockman in his further assertion, after a well thought out and reviewed analysis of all the evidences available to him on the subject, which can be found here :

Conclusion

In this article, I have considered the three theories expounded in the Word Study OT; compared the terminologies of M, LXX and P versions of Gen. 6:1–4; and then used the Qumran scrolls to show that the “nephilim” were indeed giants and not just “mighty men,” and not the “tribe of Seth” which is nowhere mentioned in Genesis. This is the viewpoint held by Second Temple era Jews, and it was subsequent speculation that muddied the waters. Anyway, I hope you have found these more than three minutes of irksome thought entertaining and instructive after all.

In summary,  I will interject my own speculation of the possibility that the Syriac wording ( Judges ) could easily be applied to what all three of the Books that we have relied on which were found among the Dead Sea Scrollsthe “Book of  Enoch”,  “Book of Jubilees”, and the “Genesis Apocryphon”, call  “Watchers”  the “Holy Ones” and the Angels of God.   With that being said, I will now leave off until the next chapter by saying  that we will find in this study, that Kings were most probably involved in the building of the Great Pyramid,  Shepherd Kings in fact!!! ©

“Sons of Enoch” chapter 10

Ah… Yes. The elusive identity of the Genesis Chapter 6 allusion to the  Sons of God, whom, we are told, not only lusted after but also consummated with the  Daughters of  Man, thereby in either a super-natural way, or some freak of  nature  gave birth to a race of  Super Humans, and possibly even Giants.  We have previously studied the popular theory of the Sons of  God being the Sons of  Seth, who sinned, and married the Daughters of  Cain. Although, as you may remember, we came to no dismissible evidence concerning that theory.   Neither did we absolutely solidify it’s claim.  Next, we will look into the second most accepted belief of who the Genesis writer referred to as the “Sons of God ” in the  Genesis Chapter 6 account, and that is the one of course that attributes the name Sons of God to the fallen Angels. Here we will begin looking into the Book of Enoch. The Book of Enoch, as earlier stated in another chapter, was accepted as Scripture,  until the 4th century A.D., by many including those, ( Church Fathers ) who canonized the modern Bible,  and yet, they did not include the Book.  ( Possibly  because God did  not want all the details to be revealed until the last days. ) I will now  post a few renown expert opinions, and commentaries, and from  there, I will just allow the words of the book to speak for themselves, and the readers to absorb what they are able to accept  or not.

– Milik, Jazef. T., ed. The Books of Enoch: Aramaic Fragments of Qumran Cave 4 The Book of Enoch is “an ancient composition known from two sets of versions, an Ethiopic one that scholars identify as ‘1 Enoch’, and a Slavonic version that is identified as ‘2 Enoch’, and which is also known as The Book of the Secrets of Enoch. Both versions, of which copied manuscripts have been found mostly in Greek and Latin translations, are based on early sources that enlarged on the short biblical mention that Enoch, the seventh Patriarch after Adam, did not die because, at age 365, ‘he walked with God’ – taken heavenward to join the deity.”

Graham Hancock, The Sign and the Seal “The Book of Enoch remained in darkness until 1821, when the long years of dedicated work by a professor of Hebrew at the University of Oxford were finally rewarded with the publication of the first ever English translation of the Book of Enoch. The Reverend Richard Laurence, Archbishop of Cashel, had labored for many hundreds of hours over the faded manuscript in the hands of the Bodleian Library, carefully substituting English words and expressions for the original Ge’ez, while comparing the results with known extracts, such as the few brief chapters preserved in Greek by Syncellus during the ninth century.”

Shem, Ultrastooge Phd.  (Yahoo !. answers) Anything dangerous to the church is usually destroyed or omitted. That is a historical fact. So when we consider that Enoch was the first of ancient writers who wrote in the first person (i.e: I saw, I went, I did), who wrote of traveling through the air with beings (Gods) from another world, who was possibly the same person partly responsible for the Egyptian pyramids…. Well, hope you see where I am going with this.

Well, I thought I knew where you were going with it Ultrastooge, till you misquoted Enoch: Traveling through the air with (Gods) from another world ?  That’s not exactly what Enoch said, though, I  can see how some would misinterpret it to say something like that…

Here’s what Enoch did say…

I-V. Parable of Enoch on the Future Lot of the Wicked and the Righteous

CHAPTER I.

1. The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect  andrighteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked  and godless are to be removed. 2. And he took up his parable and said–Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens,  which the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come. 3. Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them: The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling,
4. And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai,
And appear from His camp
And appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens. 5. And all shall be smitten with fear
And the Watchers shall quake,
And great fear and trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth. 6. And the high mountains shall be shaken,
And the high hills shall be made low,
And shall melt like wax before the flame . 7.And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder,
And all that is upon the earth shall perish,
And there shall be a judgement upon all (men).

8. But with the righteous He will make peace.

And will protect the elect,
And mercy shall be upon them.

And they shall all belong to God,
And they shall be prospered,
And they shall allbe blessed.

And He will help them all
And light shall appear unto them,
And He will make peace with them .

9. And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of  His  holy ones
To execute judgement upon all,
And to destroy the ungodly:

And to convict all flesh
Of all the works  of their ungodlinesswhich they have ungodly committed,
And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners  have spokenagainst Hi

Now, of course, that is only the first chapter, in the first book of Parables.

CHAPTER II.

1. Observe ye everything that takes place in the heaven, how they do not change their orbits,  andthe luminaries which are in the heaven, how they all rise and set in order each in its season, and transgress not against their appointed order. 2. Behold ye the earth, and give heed to the things which take place upon it from first to last,  how steadfast, how  none of the things upon earth change,  Butall the works of God appear  to you. 3. Behold the summer and the winter, how the whole earth is filled with water, and clouds and dew and rain lie upon it

CHAPTER III.

Observe and see how (in the winter) all the trees  seem as though they had withered and shed all their leaves, except fourteen trees, which do not lose their foliage but retain the old foliage from two to three years till the new comes.

( there are 14 base species from which we get all of the evergreen trees )

CHAPTER IV.

And again, observe ye the days of summer how the sun is above the earth over against it. And you seek shade and shelter by reason of the heat of the sun, and the earth also burns with growing heat, and so you cannot tread on the earth, or on a rock by reason of its heat.

CHAPTER V.

1. Observe  ye how the trees cover themselves with green leaves and bear fruit: wherefore give ye heed  and knowall His works go on Thusfrom year to year for ever, and all the tasks which they accomplish for Him, andtheir tasks change not, but according asGod hath ordained so is it done.

3. And behold how the sea and the rivers in like manner accomplish and  change not their tasksfrom His commandments.

4. But ye–ye have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of the Lord,
But ye have turned away and spoken proud and hard words
With your impure mouths against His greatness.
Oh, ye hard-hearted, ye shall find no peace.

5. Therefore shall ye execrate your days,
And the years of your life shall perish,
And  the years of your destruction shall be multiplied in eternal execration,
And ye shall find no mercy.

6a. In those days ye shall make your names an eternal execration unto all the righteous,
b. And by you shall  all who curse, curse,
And all the sinners  and godlessshall imprecate by you,
7
c. And for you the godless there shall be a curse.

6d. And all the . . . shall rejoice,
e. And there shall be forgiveness of sins,
f. And every mercy and peace and   forbearance.
g. There shall be salvation unto them, a goodly light.

i. And for all of you sinners there shall be no salvation,
j But on you all shall abide a curse.
7
a. But for the elect there shall be light and joy and peace,
b. And they shall inherit the earth.

8 And then there shall be bestowed upon the elect wisdom,
And they shall all live and never again sin,
Either through ungodliness or through pride:
But they who are wise shall be humble.

9 And they shall not again transgress,
Nor shall they sin all the days of their life,
Nor shall they die of (the divine) anger or wrath,
But they shall complete the number of the days of their life.

And their lives shall be increased in peace,
And the years of their joy shall be multiplied,
In eternal gladness and peace,
All the days of their life.

VI-XI. The Fall of the Angels: the Demoralisation of Mankind: the Intercession of the Angels on behalf of Mankind. The Dooms pronounced by God on the Angels: the Messianic Kingdom (a Noah fragment).

CHAPTER VI.

1. And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. 2. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.’ 3. And Semjâzâ, who was their leader, said unto them: ‘I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.’ 4. And they all answered him and said: ‘Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.’ 5. Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 6. And they were in all two hundred; who descended  in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 7. And these are the names of their leaders: Sêmîazâz, their leader, Arâkîba, Râmêêl, Kôkabîêl, Tâmîêl, Râmîêl, Dânêl, Êzêqêêl, Barâqîjâl, Asâêl, Armârôs, Batârêl, Anânêl, Zaqîêl, Samsâpêêl, Satarêl, Tûrêl, Jômjâêl, Sariêl. 8. These are their chiefs of tens.

CHAPTER VII.

1. And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. 2. And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: 3. Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, 4. the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. 5. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood. 6. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.

CHAPTER VIII.

1. And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. 2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, (taught) astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiêl the signs of the earth, Shamsiêl the signs of the sun , and Sariêl the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .

CHAPTER IX.

1. And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth. 2. And they said one to another:  The earth made †without inhabitant cries the voice of their crying  up to the gates of heaven. 3  And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men make their suit, saying, “Bring our cause before the Most High.”.’ 4. And they said to the Lord of the ages: ‘Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings,  and God of the ages , the throne of Thy glory (standeth) unto all the generations of the ages, and Thy name holy and glorious and blessed unto all the ages! 5. Thou hast made all things, and power over all things hast Thou: and all things are naked and open in Thy sight, and Thou seest all things, and nothing can hide itself from Thee. 6. Thou seest what Azâzêl hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn: 7. And Semjâzâ, to whom Thou hast given authority to bear rule over his associates. 8. And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. 9. And the women have borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness. 10. And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are crying and making their suit to the gates of heaven, and their lamentations have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are wrought on the earth. 11. And Thou knowest all things before they come to pass, and Thou sees  these things and Thou dost suffer them, and Thou dost not say to us what we are to do to them in regard to these.’

CHAPTER X.

1. Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech, and said to him: 2. Go to Noah and tell him in my name “Hide thyself!” and reveal to him the end that is approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come upon the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. 3. And now instruct him that he may escape and his seed may be preserved for all the generations of the world.’ 4. And again the Lord said to Raphael: ‘Bind Azâzêl hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening in the desert, which is in Dûdâêl, and cast him therein. 5. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. 6. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. 8. And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azâzêl: to him ascribe all sin.’ 9. And to Gabriel said the Lord: ‘Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroythe children of fornication and the children of the Watchers from amongst men  and cause them to go forth : send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in battle: for length of days shall they not have. 10. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and that each one of them will live five hundred years .11. And the Lord said unto Michael: ‘Go, bind Semjâzâ and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness. 12. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is for ever and ever is consummated. 13. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all generations. 15. And destroy all the spirits of the reprobate and the children of the Watchers, because they have wronged mankind. Destroy all wrong from the face of the earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of righteousness and truth appear:  and it shall prove a blessing; the works of righteousness and truthshall be planted in truth and joy for evermore.

17 And then shall all the righteous escape,
And shall live till they beget thousands of children,
And all the days of their youth and their old age
Shall they complete in peace.

18 And then shall the whole earth be tilled in righteousness, and shall all be planted with trees and be full of blessing. 19. And all desirable trees shall be planted on it, and they shall plant vines on it: and the vine which they plant thereon shall yield wine in abundance, and as for all the seed which is sown thereon each measure (of it) shall bear a thousand, and each measure of olives shall yield ten presses of oil. 20. And cleanse thou the earth from all oppression, and from all unrighteousness, and from all sin, and from all godlessness: and all the uncleanness that is wrought upon the earth destroy from off the earth. 21.  And all the children of men shall become righteous , and all nations shall offer adoration and shall praise Me, and all shall worship Me. And the earth shall be cleansed from all defilement, and from all sin, and from all punishment, and from all torment, and I will never again send (them) upon it from generation to generation and for ever.


CHAPTER XI.

1. And in those days I will open the store chambers of blessing which are in the heaven, so as to send them down  upon the earth over the work and labour of the children of men. 2. And truth and peace shall be associated together throughout all the days of the world and throughout all the generations of men.’

XII-XVI. Dream Vision of Enoch: his intercession for Azâzêl and the fallen Angels: and his announcement to them of their first and final doom.

CHAPTER XII.

1. Before these things Enoch was hidden, and no one of the children of men knew where he was hidden, and where he abode, and what had become of him. 2. And his activities had to do with the Watchers, and his days were with the holy ones. 3. And I, Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers called me–Enoch the scribe–and said to me: 4. ‘Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go,  declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: “Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: 5. And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as  they  delight themselves in  their  children, 6. The murder of  their beloved ones shall  they  see, and over the destruction of  their  children shall  they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain.”‘

CHAPTER XIII.

1. And Enoch went and said: ‘Azâzêl,thou shalt have no peace: a severe sentence has gone forth against thee to put thee in bonds: 2. And thou shalt not have toleration nor  request  granted to thee, because of the unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of godlessness and unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men  3. Then I went and spoke to them all together, and they were all afraid, and fear and trembling seized them. 4. And they besought me to draw up a petition for them that they might find forgiveness, and to read their petition in the presence of the Lord of heaven. 5. For from thenceforward they could not speak (with Him) nor lift up their eyes to heaven for shame of their sins for which they had been condemned. 6. Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their spirits and their deeds individually and in regard to their requests that they should have forgiveness and length  of days. 7. And I went off and sat down at the waters of Dan, in the land of Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon: I read their petition till I fell asleep. 8. And behold a dream came to me, and visions fell down upon me, and I saw visions of chastisement,and a voice came bidding (me) I to tell it to the sons of heaven, and reprimand them. 9. And when I awaked, I came unto them, and they were all sitting gathered together, weeping in ’Abelsjâîl, which is between Lebanon and Sênêsêr, with their faces covered. 10. And I recounted before them all the visions which I had seen in sleep, and I began to speak the words of righteousness, and to reprimand the heavenly Watchers.


CHAPTER XIV.

1. The book of the words of righteousness, and of the reprimand of the eternal Watchers in accordance with the command of the Holy Great One in that vision. 2. I saw in my sleep what I will now say with a tongue of flesh and with the breath of my mouth: which the Great One has given to men to converse therewith and understand with the heart. 3. As He has created and given to man the power of understanding the word of wisdom, so hath He created me also and given  me the power of reprimanding the Watchers, the children of heaven. 4. I wrote out your petition, and in my vision it appeared thus, that your petition will not be granted unto you  throughout all the days of eternity, and that judgement has been finally passed upon you: yea (your petition) will not be granted unto you5. And from henceforth you shall not ascend into heaven unto all eternity, and in bonds of the earth the decree has gone forth to bind you for all the days of the world. 6. And (that) previously you shall have seen the destruction of your beloved sons and ye shall have no pleasure in them, but they shall fall before you by the sword. 7. And your petition on their behalf shall not be granted, nor yet on your own: even though you weep and pray and speak all the words contained in the writing which I have written. 8. And the vision was shown to me thus: Behold, in the vision clouds invited me and a mist summoned me, and the course of the stars and the lightnings sped and hastened me, and the winds in the vision caused me to fly and lifted me upward, and bore me into heaven. 9. And I went in till I drew nigh to a wall which is built of crystals and surrounded by tongues of fire: and it began to affright me. And I went into the tongues of fire and drew nigh to a large house which was built of crystals: and the walls of the house were like a tesselated floor (made) of crystals, and its groundwork was of crystal. 11. Its ceiling was like the path of the stars and the lightnings, and between them were fiery cherubim, and their heaven was (clear as) water. 12. A flaming fire surrounded the walls, and its portals blazed with fire. 13. And I entered into that house, and it was hot as fire and cold as ice: there were no delights of life therein: fear covered me, and trembling got hold upon me. 14. And as I quaked and trembled, I fell upon my face. 15. And I beheld a vision, And lo! there was a second house, greater than the former,  and the entire portal stood open before me, and it was built of flames of fire. 16. And in every respect it so excelled in splendour and magnificence and extent that I cannot describe to you its splendour and its extent. 17. And its floor was of fire, and above it were lightnings and the path of the stars, and its ceiling also was flaming fire. 18. And I looked and saw therein a lofty throne: its appearance was as crystal, and the wheels thereof as the shining sun, and there was the vision of cherubim. 19. And from underneath the throne came streams of flaming fire so that I could not look thereon. 20. And the Great Glory sat thereon, and His raiment shone more brightly than the sun and was whiter than any snow. 21. None of the angels could enter and could behold His face by reason of the magnificence and glory and no flesh could behold Him. 22. The flaming fire was round about Him, and a great fire stood before Him, and none around could draw nigh Him: ten thousand times ten thousand (stood) before Him, yet He needed no counselor. 23. And the most holy ones who were nigh to Him did not leave by night nor depart from Him. 24. And until then I had been prostrate on my face, trembling: and the Lord called me with His own mouth, and said to me: ‘Come hither, Enoch, and hear my word.’ 25.  And one of the holy ones came to me and waked me, and He made me rise up and approach the door: and I bowed my face downwards.

CHAPTER XV.

1. And He answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: ‘Fear not, Enoch, thou righteous man and scribe of righteousness: approach hither and hear my voice. 2. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to intercedefor them: “You should intercede” for men, and not men for you: 3. Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons?  though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those  also do who die and perish. 5. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. 6. But you were  formerly spiritual,men, living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. 7. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. 8. And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. 9. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from   and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin;  they shall be evil spirits on earth, and  evil spirits shall they be called. 10. As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.11. And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food,  but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded  from them.

CHAPTER XVI.

1. From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death  of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement–thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgement in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.” 2. And now as to the Watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been  aforetime  in heaven,  (and say to them )  “You have been in heaven, but  all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.” 4. Say to them therefore: “You have no peace.”‘

CHAPTER XVI.

1. From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death  of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement–thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the greatjudgement in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.” 2. And now as to the Watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been  aforetime in heaven, (say to them): “You have been in heaven, but  all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.” 4. Say to them therefore: “You have no peace.”‘

Now, these sixteen chapters are only the beginning of the Book of Enoch, there are at least 40 more chapters, many of which we shall post from as needed to expound upon answers. Answers to questions like:  Who were the ancient Mayans, and where did they get their  foreknowledge of things to come about on this earth and in the heavens. From whom did they receive the wisdom to record these future events, at least 1500 years before modern science is verifying that they are imminent. I am sure the previous posting from the Book of Enoch has already explained a lot of the questions for those of you who already know that this is not just a page out of some fairy tale.

But, many of you, who have read  the Book of Enoch, and the Bible, and the previous articles in this book are probably saying:  Okay, but these things have already taken place haven’t they ? Didn’t the flood destroy all the remnants of the evil off-spring of the fallen Angels ?  Well, why don’t we ask Jesus and see what He has to say about that ? Matthew 24:37
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


“Sons of Enoch” chapter 9

Keeping the subject matter of  the previous chapter in mind, I will begin by expounding on some of  its  content as well as examining some different theories pertaining to the “Sons of God “.  First of all, there are three majorly accepted views of who the Bible is speaking of when it  states:  the “Sons of  God” in Genesis 6,  where we see :   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.

The first theory, or belief that we will take a look at is the most widely accepted among  the more conservative scholars, and conservatively speaking, is probably the easiest to accept. This belief  holds that the Sons of God were the Sons of Seth, thought to be the righteous of  God, who intermarried with the wicked Daughters of  Cain, creating a super-human race.  Those who oppose this theory, or at least many who do,  say that it is based on the assumption that Seth’s sons were the Sons of God,  as the Bible never states that they were. Those who make this claim also point out that the Bible only has this to say about Seth’s first son, Enos, ( Which stands for “Frail”, or “Mortal “)                   

   Genesis 4:26
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. It is also a part of their argument that there is more than one interpretation  of the last part of this verse, one being :   Then began men to call their gods, ( idols, ) by the name of  Jehovah.

They also pose the question;  If this interpretation actually meant that this was the first time people began to call upon the Lord, then who did Seth, and Adam call to. Which, I will admit raises a rather strong argument. I was able to find one instance which took place after the flood, where God was angered by the Israelites calling Baal, by His name:  Or,  was probably saying, “Stop calling Baal, God” ?  

Hosea 2:16
And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali.

However, if we look in the 3rd Chapter of the Book of Luke, in the lineage of Jesus, we do find this:   Luke 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, 24Which was the son of —- and  so on until-—-38Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

Still, those opposed to the theory that the “Sons of God” were the sons of Seth, who married with the daughters of Cain, also claim that the sons of  Seth were not shown to be more righteous than any of the other people on earth, and that the Bible says that God destroyed all mankind except for Noah and his family, who were the only righteous people found on the earth.  In light of the Luke 3, lineage of Joseph, and the fact that Seth was long since passed away, as well as his immediate family of sons, and that Noah was a son of Seth, respectively, I can not dismiss the possibility that

Modern Day Mount Ararat

the Bible, when used as the only source, could have been speaking of the sons of Seth in the passage referring to the “Sons of God”. As I have mentioned in an earlier chapter, depending on which Bible Manuscript one uses, Methuselah,  Noah’s Grandfather is said to have either lived till the same year that the flood came, or, 14 years after the flood.   Fourteen years after the flood According to the Vaticanus Septuagint.

Nevertheless, there is still one problem in the way of  accepting the theory that the Bible was speaking of the “Sons of Seth”  in   Genesis 6:2-4, and that being the Hebrew wording used for “Sons of God”. Throughout the old testament the   wording (benei ha-elohim ) is used  a total of 5 times, and here are the other 4 in  sequence.  Daniel 3:25  25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.[a]   ( Note that  the New King James  version has a click-able  footnote … which gives the more accurate, most recently translated meaning for the designation,” Son of God” )

This interpretation is also found in most newer versions of the Bible, and simply states: ( son of  the gods )

In the Daniel passage, this would definitely seem more accurate, as Nebuchadnezzar was not yet familiar with the Hebrew religion and it’s entities .  Not to mention that as far as we know from what the Bible out right tells us, Jesus was the only “Begotten” son of God, and not until He was born in the little town of Bethlehem was God incarnate through Christ to live among people on earth, something most of Jewry still haven’t grasped from the scriptures,  let alone   Nebuchadnezzar. He certainly  could not have envisioned what “THE SON OF GOD” (JESUS ) would look like 500 years before Jesus was born, but would most likely have been referring to something that the “Babylonian” religion would have been familiar with. ( Whether real or not,)   It may be important to point out here,   (benei ha-elohim ) in the Old Testament in at least all but the possible verse in question refers to Angels, whether good or bad.

Job 1:6
Now there was a day when the ( sons of God ) came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. If it wasn’t clear in this verse that “Presenting themselves before the Lord”  meant literally in Heaven,  the next verse seems to answer that question soundly enough.

Job 1:7
And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou?Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

We would be hard pressed to claim that the “Sons of God” spoken of in the previous two passages  were “Not” Angelic beings.

But, even once more in the book of Job we see the same wording;  and in the Hebrew it is once again : ( benei ha-elohim)

Job 2:1 New King James Version
[ Satan Attacks Job’s Health ] Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

In the final usage of the designation: (Sons of God/benei ha-elohim ) in the Old Testament, there is no doubt as to whom the scriptures were referring to, as man had not yet been created.

In Job 38:4, God asked Job, where were thou when I laid the foundation of the earth…and Job 38:7 reads as follows:

  1. Job 38:7
    When the morning stars sang together, and all the  sons of God shouted for joy?
