The Book of Enoch and the Nephilim


book-of-enoch

Ever since its translation in 1800  from ancient texts discovered in Ethiopia in 1768, the Book of Enoch has created a stir in academic circles. Enoch has been proven to have existed and was mentioned before the existence of the church. Several copies of it were discovered in 1948 among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Some even believe we can trace back stories that have great similarities to Ancient Sumer.

Parts of the Book of Enoch tell the story of the evil angels who kidnapped and paired with human women, resulting in the creation of a hybrid race known throughout the secular and biblical history as the Nephilim.

The first parts of the book detail the interaction of the Fallen Angles with Mankind:

“…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.” 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.” Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 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…

This is how the Nephilim, aka Giants, were created, as described in the book:

“…And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three hundred ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood…”

In the introduction to the Book of Enoch we read that: “Enoch is a just man, whose eyes were opened by God so that he saw a vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which the sons of God showed to me, and from them I heard everything, and I knew what I saw, but [these things that I saw will] not [come to pass] for this generation, but for a generation that has yet to come.”

While it only covers the first four verses of Genesis 6 (also refer to Genesis 3:15, 2 Peter 2:4-6, Jude 6-7), Enoch refers to this story in great detail. In fact, we are able to find a list with names of 18 prefect Angels –out of a total of 200— who committed the great sin.

Interestingly, this ancient text also details how these fallen angels taught mankind how to make swords and knives, shields and breastplates (metallurgy)… magic medicine, root-cuttings (medicinal and hallucinogenic use), incantations, astrology, the course of the moon, as well as how to deceive man;

…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 coloring tinctures. 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…” (Source)

By the time of Noah, “Earth was already corrupt before God, and the Earth was filled with violence, all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Fearing the consequences, the fallen angels called upon Enoch to speak with God on their behalf.

But God used Enoch to deliver a message of judgment against the Fallen Angels.

God did not forgive them for teaching mankind the use of the arts of magic and form of war.

This, however, is summarized in great detail by Pastor Chris Ward.

“According to the Book of Enoch (Not a Canonical Text), God judged the angels for producing the Nephilim. God decreed that the fallen angels (Watchers) were to be cast into Tartarus. The Nephilim were also judged, and it was determined that their bodies were to return to the earth in peace, but their souls were doomed to wander the earth forever (as) wandering spirits…”

  1. Apparently this ‘god’ was a bit jealous that the angels had taught humans ‘science’. Isn’t jealousy one of the seven deadly sins?
    Oh and I think it’s spelled (Sumer) not summer.

    1. If a father told his child not to put his hand on a hot burner because he would get burned and feel pain. The child does it anyway. So I can safely assume by your logic that the father is jealous of his child for doing what he was told not to do and causing pain in the process????????????

      1. By your logic, your God recommends against the use of the BRAIN. It would seem your ‘god’ has made a mistake by giving the human such a large brain. If your god doesn’t want humans to use their brains, he should have created us without the capacity. You don’t put a guppy in a 55gal tank and then tell it NOT to GROW. Your god also seems to have made a mistake by giving the male of the species foreskin on its genitals as it seems he also recommends it be cut off. But then if your god is a victim of jealousy, he is also likely a victim of lust – another of the seven deadly no-no’s. Your god is an awesome god all right.

        1. While people had been living in harmony and peace on Earth. Then fallen angels bringing them the spells and weapons of war is progress called science for you? If they only had left out the means of destruction, it would have been a positive act.

          – There must be something really twisted in ones mind to think that way… mind controlled maybe by the Archons (aka the fallen angels)? – If appreciating destructive science knowledge over peace and harmony. We would be doing way better without them.

          — Do you also appreciate materialistic development over spiritual development?
          Hmmmm…. why did we come here?
          – To gather stuff and property?
          – Or did we actually come here to grow as a soul through our experiences? 😉

  2. Disembodied spirits still lurk and find their way forcing themselves in human bodies today, mostly pre-birth. These people seem ‘beside’ themselves and/or totally insane. Some make it as far as adulthood before finding life’s ‘easy’ ways and turning to evil and violence. Few get to be discovered for what and who they are. Only a true ‘watcher’ would know and be at the right place at the right time for them. Meaning: A human having developed and evolved from an angel not mentioned, and not one of the 200 but favored by God, who’s sole mission is to seek the salvation of one of his first children (angels that they were). These special human beings are carefully provided for buy a great power and being of great reaches. The one human caring for them are just ‘taken care’ of as part of the deal to oversee their transition from this life to the inevitable eternal life. This Great and Powerful Eternal God will stop at nothing to save one of his first born.

    1. The fallen angels that took human wives and had giant children, those are NOT Gods beings that my God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They will all burn in the lake of fire.

  3. “…and they bare great giants, Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them… And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood…”
    .
    “….and they cut off one of their legs, and hopped stupidly, verily blindly, into hot magma…leaving behind a sole footprint in igneous rock. Yea, thusly did Enoch shake his head incredulously, smote his forehead, and mounted his giant wheel and departed this Earth. Amen”

  4. You clearly fail to grasp that the reason for Noah to build the ark was not about who was doing what in Gomorrah.

    The reason for the flood of Noah, is the same reason for the first flood, which is the “great deluge” or “flood of Manu” at the end of the age of Moses. It was the end of the Age. The Ages, or “Yuga’s” are of finite length.

    The bible is nothing more than a recurring eschatological prophecy. It comes to pass at the end of every Age.

    Now, first let’s deal with the nephilim. The nephilim were the individuals who the Old Man calls on when He needs something “big picture” dealt with. The list of biblical individuals who were nephilim, actually includes Enoch. Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Noah were all dynastic avatars or nephilim.

    Enoch was a nice guy, but he was a rube. He didn’t understand a lot of things. That’s why he didn’t even know that he himself was a nephilim. He was seven generations from Adam.

    The Messiah is a nephilim. So, that tells you something. It tells you that the nephilim were and remain, the individuals who are called upon to perform when the Old Man needs something “big picture” taken care of.

    Now, Enoch is considered one of the canonical texts, but was removed at the Council of Trent, because, he tells the truth. He discusses the truth about heaven and hell, both, but his vernacular was so naive that the Council of Nicea didn’t understand what he was getting at. The last thing in the world the Council of Nicea wanted to have to deal with was the truth. It didn’t fit in to their “forgiveness” lie.

    God did not use Enoch as an intermediary in any way shape or form.

    The Council of Nicea actually removed some eighty Gospels or texts that were supposed to be included in the finished bible, but they removed texts by most of the females that were on such subjects as tarot, astrology, the zodiac, and other occult dealings.

    Enoch wasn’t removed until the Council of Trent, because of his vernacular.

    It was all within the Old Man’s plan for the things that happened to happen. It all fell out according to His plan.

    What the one thing that you might want to understand about this all is that we are coming to the end of the Age, and there is no next Age.

    If you have any hopes of getting out of this one, you need to get your karma polished up, and wait for it to all happen.

    The battle of the Armageddon has been fought and the army of darkness takes another loss. So, we have some prophecy about it all to fulfill and that’s going to happen on new years day, next week.
