Book of Enoch
Divinely Inspired or Heresy?
Will Now Be Able to Answer That
Question With Certainty
Published on October 16, 2005
The purpose of this document is to shed some light on the
controversy which continues to swirl around the Book of Enoch (1) and the
possible relation between it and the great civilizations of antiquity
which may predate the Egyptian, the Maya, the Inca and other legendary
The purpose of this document is
not to convince
anyone, only assist humanity in its
spiritual development. This is
to be achieved not by brainwashing
but by stimulating humanity to utilize the intellect granted it by God.
is Enoch (Henoch)? Why may
he be so important?
Before we even consider anything else,
the first question that
needs answering is: Who is Enoch? Just on this first, and
apparently innocuous, question confusion starts. Enoch is the name of
the son Cain had with his wife
and a direct line ancestor of Methusael who begot Lamech
In this line, Mehujael begot Methusael. However, in the
described below the story is quite different.
In this second genealogy, the
"other" Enoch is the son of
Jared and the father of Methuselah.
According to this genealogy,
Lamech was begotten by Methuselah.
father of Noah, was a direct line descendant of Seth, the third son
of Adam and Eve, and not
a descendant of Cain, at least in this particular case. [Gen.
Taking a practical approach, we will
resolve the first apparent
contradictory information regarding Enoch's ancestry (2)
by skipping several generations until
Methusael or Methuselah, the son of Enoch by one account or a distant
descendant, by another. It is obvious that we
are dealing with either two distinct Enochs (one is the ancestor of
the other is the descendant
of Jared). However, the Enoch of interest for this work is the one who
father of Methuselah - the pre-Flood Enoch. [Gen. 4: 17-18 and 5:18-24]
After the birth of
Methuselah, Enoch walked with God for
300 years; and he begot sons and daughters..... then he was no more,
for God took him. [Genesis 5:22-24]
took him" is not an euphemism for "dying". The writer of this part of
Genesis was very careful in stating "then he died" when writing of
Enoch's relatives ending their lives on Earth, but when he wrote about
Enoch it was crystal clear - he did not die, "Good took him" as it
later happened with Elijah. Even when we read that Noah also "walked
with God" just as Enoch did, at the end of Noah's journey we read "then
he died" and not
that "Good took him"
It is obvious that Enoch was
"a notch above the crowd".
leave a written legacy?
Obviously he did if we are to
accept the letter of Jude
as a canonical book of the New Testament. On verses 14-15 we read:
And to these also Enoch, the seventh from
Adam, prophesied, saying, Behold, the Lord came with ten
his holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all
the ungodly of all their works of ungodliness which they have ungodly
wrought, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken
In addition to the above acknowledgment by St. Jude, St. Augustine
(354-430), who is very revered by the Roman
Catholic Church, stated that Enoch did write about Divine matters.
Also, Pons reminds us that "Tertullian (160-230), Clement of Alexandria
(150-220), St. Atanasius, St. Jerome and others speak of Enoch's Book
as preserved in Noah's Ark in the time of the deluge", that is, they
considered it written by the Patriarch Enoch himself. (3)
Furthermore, what St. Jude cites in his
letter (quoted above) is
almost verbatim from the Ethiopic version of the Book of Enoch [Enoch 1:9]. The words "the
seventh from Adam" may be also found in the same book [Enoch 60:8] as spoken by
Noah, who refers to his grandfather in such manner. Enoch also referred
himself in such manner. [Enoch
Why is all of that
This question brings us to
the fulfillment of
the purpose of this document.
As we have already pointed out in two other
documents (4), and
illustrated above in
text, fanatical Biblical literalism can be dangerous and lead to grave
errors; i.e. If God Created only Adam and Eve, who in turn had Cain and
Abel, who did Cain marry to beget Enoch? Or who did Seth marry to
become the ancestor - four generations removed - of the same
Enoch? etc. etc. (2)
If St. Augustine's
problem with the Book of Enoch was
indeed the product of just another overcompensation for his wild and
worldly past lifestyle, why was Chapter 6 of Genesis not also banned
since in it we read:
And it came to pass, when men began to
multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto
them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they
were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose. And Jehovah
said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is
flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim
were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of
God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the
same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. [Genesis 6:1-4]
According to Straubinger (3) some claim
that the "sons of God" were the descendants of Seth and the "daughters
of men" were the daughters of Cain. Others claim that the "sons of God"
were angels who materialized and interacted physically with women.
Well.... fast-forward to the Book of Daniel, look into the
furnace where Nabuchodonosor had thrown
and Abdenago and we see them prancing around
the fire with someone, described by
Nabuchodonosor himself, as a "son of God" [Daniel 3:91-92]. Fast
forward to the New Testament and we read Our Lord Jesus Christ
describing Himself over and over again as the "son of man" yet His
Father is God.
It would then be safe to assume that the term
"son of man" refers to a
spirit/soul that was born into the world (in human flesh) - even though
that spirit may be the Spirit of God; whereas, "son of God" refers to a
creature that was created to exclusively be a spirit although it may take the appearance of a human: i.e.
Raphael [Tobias 12:15-21]. When an
unclean spirit takes
possession of a human body, i.e. the possessed of Gerasens [Mark 5:1-12],
then we are not dealing with an "appearance of" but with a
Rewinding back to Genesis, Chapter 6.... It was
because the result of
that interaction between the
sons of God with the daughters of men that God brought upon mankind the
great deluge. God wished to save only Noah and his wife, their three
sons and their wives plus a pair of each animals species of the world .
6:1-22] Therefore, if indeed those (fallen) angels, sons of
God - or Watchers as Enoch called them - had taken human
form, married and impregnated the daughters of men and contaminated
creation - after the deluge, they
existed no more. End of the problem!
Or was it?
the world today. By all
standards we have fallen below anything that has been shown as evil in
the Holy Scriptures from Genesis on to the Book of Revelations. It
seems that the sons of men have become a textbook case of all
encompassing moral degradation. Therefore, one explanation of the
result of that interaction between the sons of God with the daughters
of men has been proven inadequate to explain the level of depravity
attained by mankind at the start of the 21st Century. (5) Logically, this theory
does not explain the tremendous advance of ancient cultures and their
mythical heroes [Genesis 6:4]
either. However, as the saying goes "where there is smoke, there is
what if those (fallen) sons of God spoken about in the Books of Genesis
and Enoch, are indeed the angels who fell with satan? What if they are
free to take possession (control) of a human bodies (as we have
clearly, yet symbolically, explained in a document (6) which shows that
reincarnation appears to be,
but is not?)
After all, if evil had
control of a large number of humans,
would he not impart tremendous material wisdom to those who worshipped
him - thus
helping them establish incredibly advanced and lasting great
civilizations such as those predating that of the
Egyptians, Maya, etc.? Would he not induce them to develop and
religions (all over the world and seemingly unconnected) where humans
take the place of God and where rituals sometimes called for the
offering of human
sacrifices to an unseen "god" (satan himself) and where the snake - the
symbol of satan and sin since the Book of Genesis - takes a leading
Keep in mind that the
unparalleled-in-human-history Alexander the Great
was born of Olympia who claimed
to have been impregnated by a snake. Although she was not, the
symbolism and coherence is here too.
After Jesus Christ manifested Himself on Earth ("... Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the
gospel of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of
God is at hand: repent ye, and believe in the gospel." [Mark 1:14-15]) satan's
hold on the world started to decline. Still, satan's influence,
although declining, was felt over the
ensuing twenty centuries, only
to flare up, as it is now
at the End of These Times.
Who would induce, for example, Pope Gregory
XIII to offer a solemn Te
Deum in St. Peter's Basilica and have a medal struck reading
"Ugonotiorum strages" (the destruction of the Huguenots) to celebrate
the slaughter in France of over 20,000 Huguenots (Protestants in
France)? The Spirit of God?
Who would induce Lenin to unleash upon humanity
the scourge of
communism? The Spirit of God?
Who would induce Adolph Hitler to slaughter
over 6 million human
beings, the remnant of the original chosen people of God, as if they
had been infected with a plague? The Spirit of God?
Who would induce Cardinal Law
(7) to single-handedly promote the destruction of souls
entrusted to him? Who, adding insult to injury, would induce whomever
was responsible to have glorified Law by placing him as the titular
head of the most important
Basilica dedicated to the Immaculate One (8)?
The only ones who would induce such behavior
would be the (fallen) sons
of God alluded to in Genesis (which are the "Watchers" of the Book of
Enoch), with satan at their head, and acting through human bodies. (6)
Would it not then be evil's final coup to make
humanity believe that
of those great civilizations and mythical heroes were Extraterrestials
wisely hidden in
New Age (8)
teachings? This would then
"confirm" to the completely disoriented humanity that the appearances
of Mary, and other supernatural assistance given by God to His
beleaguered children, are not from God but from some other creatures .
What a coup! What a coup! Masterful.... until God says Enough!
matter of record, and not just as an isolated supernatural
experience, miguel de Portugal has seen, with confirmation
qualified (a sober practicing psychologist) third party, in a
period of approximately fifteen minutes,
fourteen individuals, who looked just "like the guy next door", simply
vanish after entering into a room which had no other doors nor windows.
The circumstances were such that, upon meditating over this striking
event, it was obvious that they were there on a "spiritual
destruction mission". Obviously having concluded their "job in the
area" they just left in an unobtrusive manner.
How many of those fallen "sons of God" are at
work out there right now
in under the guise of "human" - seeming apparitions or by means of
possessing a human victim? Look at the world today and take a guess!
