Enoch in the Bible

A Prophet of God Sent to Reprove Rebel Angels

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, father of Methuselah, the great-grandfather of Noah, is scarcely referred to in the Holy Bible. I Enoch, also called the Book of Enoch, is traditionally believed to have been written by Enoch. And in studying these writings, the Christian academic, Dr. R.H. Charles, Yale University director of Dead Sea Scroll Studies states:

The influence of Enoch on the New Testament has been greater than that of all other apocryphal and pseudepigraphal books taken together…. All the writers of the New Testament were familiar with [Enoch’s book], and were more or less influenced by it in thought and diction.1

There is no doubt that the Master Jesus was familiar with the writings of Enoch.2 And upon closer examination, many of the key phrases and sayings recorded as Jesus’ red-letter quotes throughout the Gospels resemble the ideas and terms found in the Book of Enoch.

Enochian scholars today have based their research findings on the original Ethiopic Bible, which includes the Book of Enoch, first introduced to the modern world in the 1821 English translation by Oxford professor Richard Laurence. Additionally, the later 20th century discovery of several Aramaic Enoch texts, found among the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran, places the origins of those fragmented pages of Enoch’s book at least 200 years before the birth of Jesus.


Why Is the Book of Enoch Not in the Bible?

Why then is Enoch’s book not in the Bible nor generally regarded as canonical, official Holy Scripture? 3 There is ample evidence that Enoch’s lost book story and its 1500-year disappearance from Western Christianity revolves around a concerted effort made by the (Roman Catholic) Church to suppress and censure its distribution. In fact, in the 4th century, some influential Church theologians decried Enoch’s book as heresy.4

Despite the Rabbi Jesus’ recorded words citing obvious references to the Book of Enoch,5 despite evidence that the apostles and early Christians accepted the words of Enoch as authentic Scripture, the real mystery behind the story of the lost book of Enoch’s bible is only now coming to light. The reason that I Enoch is not included in the Christian Bible today may be explained in part by the subject that is his book’s predominant theme.

Fallen Angels—Topic of Controversy

The controversy for many theologians regarding Enoch’s teachings centers on Enoch’s claim of a fall from heaven of a certain segment of the angelic realm. In his book, Enoch described himself as the Messenger of the Ancient of Days, who is referred to in Scripture as the Most High, the Great and Holy One. It is he who sent Enoch to Earth as a prophet with power to reprove a rebellious segment of an angelic band, called the Watchers.

The Watchers were mighty guardian angels, charged by God to protect mankind. According to the Book of Enoch, a small number of these angels, beguiled by the loveliness of earthly women, chose to incarnate and cohabitate with them. The children born of their unions were disclaimed by Enoch as “evil spirits upon earth.”  In Enoch’s words, “The spirits of the[se] giants shall [be known] as the Nephilim which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, contend, and bruise upon earth.”

 

Enoch’s Book—Judgment and Warning

From the mists of antiquity, before the Flood of Noah’s time, Enoch, the seventh from Adam, was sent by God to warn his children to avoid interbreeding with the descendants of the children conceived in the illicit marriages between earthly women and these fallen angels. The major theme of the Book of Enoch then is the final judgment of those angels who fell from their heavenly estate, along with all their progeny. This final judgment of the Watchers is to occur not during Enoch’s lifetime but “in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period, on account of the elect.” (En. 1:2)

Some scholars interpret the time of this judgment to coincide with the years when Jesus walked the Earth as the Son of Man and the Elect One, terms which Enoch himself used when speaking of the coming Messiah.

Some students of the Bible, particularly of specific New Testament chapters and prophecies in Revelation and Daniel concerning the Last Judgment, believe Jesus took up the mantle of the Patriarch Enoch and that of the Old Testament Law and the Prophets. Students of the ascended masters’ teachings today, including those familliar with the Enoch material edited by the Summit University Press, conclude that the ministries of Jesus Christ and his forerunner John the Baptist were a fulfillment of the judgment prophecies preserved in I Enoch.

 

The Spirit of Enoch with Us Today 

Many in our community who regularly attend our online service broadcasts and keep abreast of the teachings of the ascended masters as delivered through David C. Lewis, acknowledge that ascended masters,  including Enoch, with other heavenly beings, are able to convey instruction and divine grace through a living amanuensis by the agency of the Holy Spirit, much as the Old Testament prophets were the mouthpiece of God to the children of Israel.

Enoch is very much alive and present in the realms of heaven and has something to say to the descendants of his own lineage.  How does the Ascended Master Enoch look upon what is occurring in the Middle East?  What is his response to the desecration of holy sites and sacred memorials in Syria and Iraq at the hands of terrorist groups? You can read his words or hear his messages in our HeartStreams Database. Please refer to the database module on the right column of this page.

In what we refer to as a HeartStream or inspired message, Enoch shares the following message with our community and devotees everywhere:

 O holy ones of God, though love is at the core of all that you do, understand that the law of love is also within the action of cosmic justice and judgment. God says to man, Enough is enough! There is no more place for darkness, war and division upon my Earth—that which the Elohim have created and which is your own garden paradise upon this planet to live in. If you would choose darkness, then that darkness will proceed to engulf you, O souls.
And yet if you choose a righteous walk in light, then that light will be your guiding principle, the daystar, the polestar of your being, and I will live through you. The law of love and righteousness will manifest through you, and all that you came to this Earth to fulfill may be realized through that law of love.


Sounds very much like the words of a prophet who, from the outset, claimed that the Great and Holy One sent him to reprove the Watchers and to deliver the stern judgment of God for ignoring their appointed task of inspiring and raising humankind.

 

Enoch’s New Walk with God Includes You
 

Enoch's walk with God includes you


In another HeartStream by Enoch delivered August 11, 2017, (View entire transcript by clicking on icon next to "Enoch: My New Walk with God and You" under the "Featured Heartstreams" module to the right) the Master cherishes us, invites us to include him in our walk with God. He offers his assistance and provides many keys to a victorious walk all the way to our ascension in the light of God.  He says to us, “One day you will walk into heaven, nevermore to have to live upon a lesser plane of being, in the temporal realms of human consciousness. As you walk with God upon Earth, so your walk with God in spirit will be. So enjoy this trek, this cosmic journey, and embrace love and God always.”

At the conclusion of this message, Enoch chants. Here is an audio recording of this chant:

                                                                         

Enoch's Melodic Formula to Dispel Darkness Audio
 

 

When you experienced this recording, perhaps you noticed the hint of the Gregorian chant in its sound. And in the tradition of Enoch who comes to warn, chastise and illumine, David shared with us that this chant “[is] a formula from Enoch to dispel darkness.” And we can “play [it] any time in order to simply meditate on the sound and see yourself fully in light, untouched, unscathed by any form of opposition, darkness of any kind.”

It Is Time That Prophecy Be Fulfilled in a Greater Measure

Reaffirm Your Commitment to the Truth
and to a New Unleashing of Light throughout the Earth



            I AM Enoch, and I come with Melchizedek and many of the ascended masters who originated the Great White Brotherhood eons ago for the salvation of Earth, for the support of the sons and daughters of God, for the victory of the light and, ultimately, for the ascension of every man, woman and child that God has sent to incarnate upon our Earth.

            Dearest ones, many of you know the story of the fall of angels, of their taking the daughters of men unto themselves and incarnating in flesh within the Earth.1 The legacy of this debauchery is continuing even to the present moment in an even greater manifestation of evil, darkness and nihilism. And so you see outpictured in many realms across the globe the effects of that original decision to rebel against the Lord God, the ways of light, the virtues of the throne-seat of the Almighty. And you witness, too, death and destruction as it is yet manifesting upon Earth within the Mater planes of temporal beingness.

            Enter the scene of the archangels and the hosts of the Lord as you know them, as you invoke them, and as the Lord God sends them to bring deliverance and an action of judgment—the justice of God manifest within the Earth. Blessed ones, when you invoke Archangel Michael and his hosts, there is an instantaneous answer and intercessory manifestation within the Earth, both where you are and where you direct them to enter with greater specificity through your invocations, prayers and heartfelt calls.

            It is time that prophecy be fulfilled in a greater measure. I recommend that you read the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation again to be aware of events unfolding within the Earth even as I speak and as the forces of darkness conglomerate and array themselves in order to usurp the power seat of the Divine within the Earth and to imprison the souls and the spirits of mankind if they are allowed by mankind's freewill choice.

            Dearest ones, it is up to you to stand firm in your resolve and never to allow darkness to enter your world, your auras, your beings. The light of the Christ is sufficient for ye all. And Jesus and the priesthood of the Order of Melchizedek2 are here for you day after day for direct intercession in your lives and for that mediation that is required in this hour of Earth's history for the fulfillment of God's divine plan within the Earth and within your lives.

            Yes, you may behold the darkness even as you uphold the light. You are aware of the machinations of mechanization men even as you are simultaneously suffused with the spiritual glory of God through holding fast to the eyes, the heart, the mind, the strength and the beingness of your Lord and your God.

            Blessed ones, it is time to reaffirm your commitment to the truth and to a new unleashing of light throughout the Earth through the dynamism of the invocation of the sacred fire and of the release of light through your songs, praises, thanksgiving and divine givingness that flows through your hearts one with God. It is time for a new manifestation of divine glory to flow through our own, the saints robed in white3 in the Earth, whom we rely upon to be our voices, our hands and feet, our active ones calling forth the highest light and the judgment of the Nephilim and the godless.

            Though we agree with the tack that you have taken within this movement to be more Buddhic and enter the higher spheres and regions of light through non-dualism, yet, dearest ones, there are times when it is also required that you stand and deliver the sacred fire through your hands raised, beholding the armies of the Lord within the heavens and inviting them to seal you, your properties, your homes, your families and your nation in the divine light of God that always prevails. Yes, the hosts of the Lord are here this day. And Archangel Michael and his legions are very active across the globe at the behest of many lightbearers who yet worship the Lord God as one God4 and invoke the light through their prayers, offerings, sacrifices, fastings.

            On this first day of your Christian Lent, I come and implore you to in some way make greater sacrifices than you have considered as possible. For there is a point-counterpoint manifestation whereby that which you surrender is released as light and grace on the altars of the Almighty as a counterbalance to the darkness that is growing in certain regions upon the Earth. And as you give and as you pray with your entire being, putting yourself fully into everything that you do, the glory of God is manifest and the Divine shines forth through your lives an example, like Christ Jesus of Christic and Buddhic beingness.

            Dearest ones, Mighty Victory is also ready every moment to answer the calls of the righteous and those endowed with an immortal flame within their hearts who know, through the science of the spoken Word, the keys to invoke God through the name I AM THAT I AM, given unto Moses on the Mount thousands of years ago.5 It is time for the “I AM” teachings to be known throughout the Earth. And you, O soul, may be a part of this dynamism through a more active participation with us in this work of the ages Therefore, be intrepid, be emboldened—not by human might; only by the power of God that flows through you as a true son or daughter of the Most High.

            Thank you for your participation in the alchemies of God within the Earth today. Thank you for your consecration, your dedication, your willingness to be there in spirit and in form for God in this hour of Earth's travail. You chose to incarnate at this time and during this season and cycle of Earth's history and you knew the consequences of that decision. And we gave you the keys, even before you entered the portal of your mother's womb, to deliver the spiritual goods unto the Earth for the victory of the light. Now use them and exemplify virtue, integrity and Solar awareness.

            I AM Enoch. I walked with God6 and I continue to walk with the Divine One in Spirit. And I invite you likewise to know, to cherish, to walk with and to love God with your entire being. Thank you, blessed hearts of fire.
