Editorial #1 - February, 2004
Relating Revelations 10: 1-11 to The Book of Enoch
Debate between myself and AGS (“Readers Comment and Discussion”)
opened a matter of serious interest but without settlement because
it was more “off the cuff” than prepared discussion.
As it is much easier to do prepared statements when the issues have
been exposed I take advantage of this with two editorials on the
subject to which, of course AGS and readers, are welcome to respond.
Response, if any, will link, mid-month, above the monthly editorial;
readers can thereby follow any debate.
I use the “New English Bible” authorized by
a combination of eleven denominations and Christian organizations.
Even this, as we will see by Old Testament example, can take on
itself to bow to cultural ideology; but our concern is with understanding
the New. As they say in their introduction, “We have conceived
our task to be that of understanding the original as precisely as
we could (using all available aids), and then saying again in our
own native idiom what we believe the author was trying to say in
his.” This translation takes advantage of ‘modern’
as opposed to ‘antique’ scholarship in the years before
Humanist corruption made research dubious, it is offered as our
best available translation.
Jesus said that, to help with conviction we should relate to the
old and the new. For witness we relate “old to new”
and I re-open the original Old Testament and offer quotes from some
of the hidden documents to reveal greater witness and authority
to our Christian Testament:
Revelations 10:1-11. Quotes are from The New English Bible
– New Testament.
“ Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven.
He was wrapped in a cloud, with the rainbow around his head; his
face shone like the sun and his legs were like pillars of fire.
In his hand he held a little scroll unrolled.”
This is the ‘anti-Christ’ Archangel. This powerful personage,
shown in ancient writings as, in many ways, similar to Jesus in
power, is, in the Book of Enoch, called Semihazah. He is the leader
of the “Watchers”: angels sent to earth to watch over
the human development. Semihazah saw this as an opportunity to rebel
against God and set up his own kingdom. This rebel leader is in
Egyptian called Set and in Christian, Satan.
Satan and his angels are known in today’s Bible but not their
history. Identity is revealed when this powerful angel is shown
as “wrapped in a cloud”. “wrapped”
camouflaged or ‘shady’, and clearly a flashy, arrogant,
“His right foot he planted on the sea, and his left on
He has underfoot the ‘firm land’ of human soul and the
‘oceans’ of peoples.
“Then he gave a great shout, like the roar of a lion;
and when he shouted the seven thunders spoke. I was about to write
down what the seven thunders had said; but I heard a voice from
heaven saying, ‘Seal up what the seven thunders have said;
do not write it down.’ "
The “thunders”, an accumulation of voices in
authority during pre-flood times, link with this cloud wrapped Angel
because when he shouted they responded; the order not to record
what is said means what they reveal is, for a time, to be suppressed.
This relates to an Old Testament revision, here various parts of
the original Hebrew Old Testament, including much of the “Book
of Enoch” are deleted. Old Testament fragments, as might be
found in the “Egyptian Book of the Dead” and the “Gilgamesh
Epic”, are also ignored.
Old Testament revision was needed so as to allow time to “weed
out” the consequences of the evil introduced by the rebellious
Watchers. Jesus describes it in the parable of the ‘darnel’
sown among the grain in which the darnel was allowed to grow until
the harvest when it could, with safety to the good grain, be destroyed.
This revision gave Western Europe and much of the world its present
Old Testament. It drew a veil over the true nature of the corruption
of the “earth-human project” in order to effect repair.
“Then the angel that I saw standing on the sea and the
land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by him who lives
for ever and ever, who created heaven and earth and the sea and
everything in them: ‘There shall be no more delay; but when
the time comes for the seventh angel to sound his trumpet, the hidden
purpose of God shall have been fulfilled, as he promised to his
servants the prophets.”
Jesus tells us we should not ‘swear by’ anything “our
word” is all that is needed of honest people. Satan is made
to announce his own limited time. As these things can now be revealed
we may assume it is near time for the “Seventh Angel”
to sound his trumpet.
"Then the voice which I heard from heaven was speaking
to me again, and it said, ‘Go and take the open scroll in
the hand of the angel that stands on the sea and the land.’
So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll.
He said to me, ’Take it, and eat it. It will turn your stomach
sour, though in your mouth it will taste sweet as honey.’
So I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate
it, and in my mouth it did taste sweet as honey; but when I swallowed
it my stomach turned sour.”
That this little scroll is ‘carried open and without respect’
is repeated. This scroll represents “humanism” and cannot
be confused with that important scroll, The Book of Life, that was
secured with seven seals and written on both sides: a scroll of
length and held in reverence because of the importance of the message
Genuine vision cannot confuse these two scrolls as being one and
the same. Nor can the mighty cloud wrapped angel who stands over
the sea (of mankind) and the land (soul of earth life) be other
than the angel in charge of the “Watchers”. Jesus is,
in this revelation, called the “Lamb”. Can we be so
confused as to see Him as this arrogant personality?
Quotes from Ancient Writings:
Archeology shows ancient Hebrew scribes to be more reliable than
might be expected and the original Book of Enoch is the most revealing
book of antediluvian times now existing.
Fortunately we have at least part of these writings translated
from the re-discovered Dead Sea Scrolls as a help to authenticity.
The following three translations will be referred to: The books
of Enoch (Dead Sea Scrolls: a translation of surviving fragments)
by J. T. Milik. Enoch (Ethiopic M/S) by R. Laurence. The
Book of Enoch (Ethiopic) by R. H. Charles. Author’s
initials at beginning of each quote indicate translators.
The situation shown is one of raw exploitation and opportunistic
selfishness such, we are told, as will not be seen again until end
times. If left exposed this Watcher corruption would have deformed
the program of human development so, for a time, it had to be hidden
(premature knowledge is a dangerous thing). The pre-flood battle
is further reported in “Ancient writings” next month.
It is significant that after being hidden for the best part of two
thousand years this episode is now available to a more advanced
JTM page 142: “not for this generation but for a far
off generation shall I speak”.
We are now in that “far off generation”.
Page 12: “Enoch spent … 300 years walking with God,
… and then he came back on to the earth amongst the sons of
men and he witnessed against all of them … and also against
Watcher identity is important. We get a clue when the Watchers ask
Enoch to intercede with God on their behalf. Enoch returns to them
with the following response:
R. L. page 20: “You ought to pray for men not men for
you … You being spiritual, holy and possessing a life that
is eternal, have polluted yourselves … have begotten in carnal
blood; have lusted in the blood of men and have done as those who
are flesh and blood do. These however die and perish.” P
22: “Say, (to the watchers) In heaven have you been; secret
things, however, have not been manifest to you; yet have you known
a reprobated mystery, and this you have related to women …
by that mystery have women and mankind multiplied evil upon earth
… Never therefore shall you obtain peace.”
The Watchers overseeing the developing earth/man soul were not
possessed of complete knowledge. They committed the unpardonable
crime of mating with earth people and establishing themselves as
lords of this earth. The leader is Semihazah (Satan) they abuse
their moral trust and also reveal inappropriate information to early
Superior to the earth Watchers were four not on earth named Michael,
Sariel, Raphael and Gabriel. Six are given in the Ethiopic version
but four seems more reliable. Unfortunately only part of the Book
of Enoch is translated from the Dead Sea Scrolls and, as with all
ancient writings, there are additions relating to matters irrelevant
and/or misleading. It is logical that the destruction of Watchers
works by fire, earthquake and the “flood” left various
groups of people with part memories of pre-flood histories, these
now provide us with alternative witness.
Here is an interesting passage related to the accusation by Enoch
against the watchers:
JTM: “.. and (women) are begetting children, who are not
like the spiritual beings but creatures of flesh. And there shall
be great wrath of God against the earth and flood … and thereafter
shall come stronger wickedness than that which will be consumed
in the days of Noah and his sons. For I know the mysteries …
the holy ones have told me and showed me … I read …
and saw written in them that generation after generation would do
evil in this wise, and evil would be more and more until there arose
generations of righteousness, and evil and wickedness should come
to an end, and violence should cease from off the earth."
The evil is allowed to grow with the good so that we have undeniable
experience; then, at harvest, the evil seed can be destroyed. Another
interesting item: JTM: “ .. Hence those who suffer affliction
there, being punished less in regard to their spirits, they will
not be afflicted with greater damage, in the day of judgement …”
So those who suffer an affliction such as of biased teaching, by
their actions, do their spirits less harm in this life and may expect,
true justice, at the judgement?
RL page 8: “The earth deprived of her children has cried
even to the gates of heaven.”
JTM page 167: “Then the earth made the accusation against
the wicked concerning everything that was done on it.”
RL pages 10-11: “Thou knowest all things before they exist
… restore the earth, which the angels have corrupted; and
announce life to it, that I may revive it … All the sons of
man shall not perish …” We see here that the “soul”
or “spirit” of human development may, in Revelation,
be referred to as ‘the earth”; meaning the
solid and everlasting in life.
Page 56 reveals the coming of Jesus: “Others shall be
made to see, that they must repent, and forsake the work of their
hands (*; and that glory awaits them not in the presence of the
lord of spirits (**; yet that by his name they may be saved …
And in those days shall the Elect One sit upon his throne.”
(* A reference to materialism.
(** Elect One, otherwise the “Lamb”; Son of Man or Jesus,
not an arrogant angel.
We cannot help notice a parallel between the Adam, Eve and serpent
story of the revised Old Testament and the behind scenes reality
of the original report of ‘Watchers’ who seduced earth-women,
told damaging secrets and ”Multiplied evil upon the earth.”
In keeping with Christian revelation Enoch also adds witness
to “two days of judgment”.
The Flood is shown to be in attendance with earthquake:
RL page 78: “In those days Noah saw that the earth became
inclined, and that destruction approached. Then he lifted up his
feet, and went to the ends of the earth, to the dwelling of his
great-grandfather Enoch. And Noah cried out in a bitter voice, ‘Hear
me; hear me; hear me; three times. And he said, tell me what is
transacting upon earth; for the earth labors, and is violently shaken.
Surely I shall perish with it … “
What happened to the Watchers?
The angels overseeing earth’s development knew good and evil.
It is reported: Semihazah said to his angels that they must all
agree and not put all blame on him if there was trouble.
When trouble arrived and the kingdoms and peoples of the Watchers
were destroyed, they were all devastated and extremely bitter; but
they, being eternal, were not destroyed, they were confined to earth.
The caretakers had set themselves up as Gods and their children
were giants. These children too were destroyed in the flesh, but
their spirits remain.
A relevant passage from the RHC trans. Pages 36-37:
“ And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy,
attack, do battle, and wreck 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 women, because they have proceeded from
them …until the day of consummation, the great judgment."
We now learn of the true origin of evil in our world culture.
Conditions during the last days R.L. page 162:
“ In those days they who become pregnant shall go forth,
carry off their children, and forsake them. Their offspring shall
slip from them, and while suckling them shall they forsake them;
they shall never return to them, and never instruct their beloved.”
Today more and more young women become pregnant from casual sex
and go forth from, or never know, the father. Parents send their
children to nurseries and schools; thus they forsake their care
to others and allow others to instruct their beloved in behavior
and values. This foretells the social disintegration we see today;
it is not meant as an itemized statement, it is a general statement
of the corruption to result from humanism.
Here is the last great effort of Satan to avenge his own guilt.
He offers the little scroll that sickens humanity and creates millions
of children without respect; these turn to selfishness, immorality,
drugs, betrayal and crime. This is the consequence of false cultural
attitudes directed by Satan through false philosophy and powered
by Government institutions.
Parents, worldwide, suffer the same social pressures and, because
so many suffer the same biased beliefs, they are unable to see that
afflictions are consequences of the ‘artificial loves’
and beliefs of humanism. Increasing corruption is the purpose of
the seductive substitute for “human” offered by the
anti-Christ. This corruption of values and behavior supports Global
power today but will end with separation of the intermixed “good
The destruction by flood, fire and earthquake destroyed much of
the product and limited the power of those in rebellion. But total
cleansing required extended development for a separation process;
the first judgment/harvest in this process is now close.
