The Book of Enoch Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3
Angels as sons of god taking wives from among mankind
Presented by Your servant, Dan L Baxley
This article was taken from a blog defending of the Book of Enoch and declaring it as fact. It follows the basic premise, as others, that this Book of Enoch, a work of "fiction", is actually scripture and thus it is true. I have interjected my opposing view to the author’s defense and believe you will see how weak the arguments are in support of this fictional work. A modern, historical, work that not only contradicts scripture but has no support in fact. Some us this work of fantasy promoting it as fact in support of their own work of fables and doctrines that border on the "worship of angels". The formidable Chuck Missler, or Koine House, has been spear heading this work, promoting this false doctrine ad nauseam. His work in this area says that angels were the "sons of God" mentioned in Genesis 6, that they (spirit beings) married human women and from this fanciful fable, produced giant children called the Nephilim. This false teaching is seeping into the Evangelical Church like rain through a leaky roof.
Barnes Notes on Enoch: This book was discovered in an AEthiopic version, and was published with a translation by Dr. Laurence of Oxford, in 1821, and republished in 1832. A full account of it and its contents may be seen in an article by Prof. Stuart in the Bib. Repository for January 1840, pp. 86-137.
Notice the dating of this quote, 1821AD not BC. The creation of this Book of Enoch in circulation today was cobbled together from 1821 AD to 1832 AD, all other dates before this are really unknown, only guesses supported by the magical super Rabbis of old – actually, It appears they are the source for this fabled material. Little wonder, then, that this modern resurgence of this teaching is tied to the modern view of the UFO scene.
I hope this presentation will ground you in the truth and firm you up against this kind of false teaching that actually, eventually, leads away from the Messiah and the need for our Savior. This teaching that angels married women, had babies that grew into giants, the Nephilim, removes the exceptional miracle of our Lord coming in flesh as our Savior -- after all, according to Missler and others this gift has been an ability angels have always had, so our Heavenly Father producing Himself as a Father to a son, YaHshua, by the miracle of His Holy Spirit is no big deal, how could it be, if angels have been doing this all along? Do you see where this false teaching leads? Read what follows, with my comments added along the way, a pro and con in exposing this lie.
Re: The Book of Enoch Exposed: (The Defense) by Blogger at --
Blogger of the site now speaks: I’ve been receiving a lot of ignorant comments concerning the book of Enoch from a lot of well-meaning folks out there. A lot of their comments are taken from an article written by the author of jesus-is-savior.com - Ridiculous
I am writing this article in order to answer future questions about the book, since doing so in individual basis seems to be a never ending task.
I will answer the points found in www.jesus-is-savior.com, but before I do, I will open my defense of Enoch with the following statements: The book of Enoch was written about 4000 years before the birth of Christ and also predates all the books in the bible.
Before the Old Testament, people were reading the Book of Enoch.
Servant’s Comment: This is a pure fabrication of the truth. There is absolutely no evidence for this statement whatsoever. This author is just making noise, he is muttering and chirping (Isa 8:19). It is very noticeable that he cannot, does not, give one source to back up this false statement, certainly not from Scripture. Apparently, just saying something that cannot be proven makes it fact. Now who is being ridiculous? The age of the pieces and parts (fragments) that became the Book of Enoch, and this is guessing, would be around 300 BC, a tad bit short of 4,000 BC -- the 4,000 year dating is from the imaginations of men and this is called, fiction, in today's language -- to confirm this go to this link -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Enoch
Blogger Point # 1 - The bible says that Enoch walked with God 365 years before God took him alive into heaven. So are we led to believe that such a righteous man lived on earth that long without writing something that would edify future generations?
Servant’s Comment: Again the author of this blog is making up his own facts -- jumping to conclusions, making assumptions -- remember the FLood? Also, Genesis 5:23-24 does not say he was taken "alive into Heaven" and ignores a couple of New Testament sources --(John 3:13) And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. (also, 1 Cor 15:50)Genesis says YHWH "took him" but to where we are not told. Also, verse 23 tells us all of the years of Enoch were 365, does that say he lived on? No, it tells us his life was 365 years and no more -- it does not say "God took him ALIVE into heaven", as this Blogger in defending the Book of Enoch states. Remember, our Savior, YaHshua, said no man is Heaven, only the one that is from Heaven can go to Heaven (John 3:13, cannot quote this enough, from the lips of our Savior). Enoch was not from Heaven, unlike our Savior, YaHshua and to suggest otherwise is to suggest that Enoch is, or was, on the same level as our Savior, YaHshua. Even the bogus Book of Enoch states that no one knew where Enoch was; only that he could not be found –they did not know where his grave was and according to the writings about the people of that time, they looked for him but no one suggested he, Enoch, had gone to heaven. Even in the first chapter of the Book of Enoch the writer (author), referring to Enoch, saying he was shown "visions", does not ever say that he went to Heaven. Also, in Chapter 10 of this spurious book, Noah is told to go and hide himself from what is to come. Enoch was long gone by that time. If you read this work you will see much you can agree with but a lot of fiction, fables and outright lies. You will be reading about events that were preflood and after. So, how did Enoch continue writing? Some, way off in the background, have suggested that Enoch is still alive and living on this Earth. The true feeling of this work is not that Enoch is writing it, but someone else is -- someone is telling us about what Enoch saw in visions and goes on to tell us about things Enoch could never have had any knowledge. Enoch was taken, but we know not where, certainly not to Heaven.We find a similar thing with Moses. No one knows where YaHWeH took him, we are only told his days were 120 years and to this day no one has any idea of where he is buried. Hum, wonder who wrote that part of the Book of Enoch (chapter 12 of the Book of Enoch), telling us Enoch could not be found then saying Enoch was recognized by the "watchers" as a scribe and told to write a warning to those watchers that had taken wives from among men? Also the narrative of the Book of Enoch speaks of Enoch and tells us about his adventures with the fallen angels, as if someone else is writing about Enoch, it flips and flops back and forth -- I do not believe it is Enoch telling the story at all? If it is Enoch's writings, then, going on that assumption we should expect to find piles of books from Adam, Seth and Methuselah, who live hundreds of years longer than Enoch. So, where are the books of Adam, Abel, and Seth, men of righteousness and of the unrighteous, like Cain? The reasoning is faulty. If it is by the number of years for the writing books to be a consideration we should note that Enoch’s years were very lean compared to others of his generation. We would also have to assume a book such as this actually survived the flood, and no others did, and, or, such a "single" book would have to have been brought over by Noah on the boat -- then we have to ask, why only that book? We find no mention from Noah, or anyone else suggesting he brought the book of Enoch over. And there is not command for Noah to bring over any artifacts, other than the animals and what he and his family needed to survive -- the evil of the previous world was covered in a devastating flood, this, as believers, we know.
Blogger Point # 2 - The book of Enoch prophesied of the coming messiah the "Son of man" who would be the Savior of the world. Again, about 4000 years before the birth of Christ ...
Servant’s Comment: This is a pointless argument. You have to assume without any proof at all that the book of Enoch is dated that far back and you would have to assume someone could even read it -- what language would it have been written in? It has only been in recent history that the writings of the Sumerians, one of the first known cultures of civilized society developing after the Flood, could be read, let alone a supposed book written in the language of a pre-flood people. This suggestion, statement, that this book survived the Flood and is dated 4,000 years before our Messiah, is not a proof of any kind for the validity of the Book of Enoch -- and if Enoch had a book then where is the Book of Noah? of course, the Book of Noah can only be found, in part, in the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees, two other works of questionable origins. They form a circle, on false book proving another false book -- one lie saying another lie is true. The Blogger, in point #2, draws on a quote from Jude 6. As mentioned before, not everything the Book of Enoch professes is a lie. Satan did not lie to Eve in the Garden, completely, no he merely suggested God YaHWeH was not telling all of the truth. Satan's subtle ability, like the Book of Enoch does not come right out and say our Savior is a liar but make it a suggestion. "Surly, our Lord did not mean no one can go to heaven, except for Him or only those already from heaven," Satan might say, "surly He did not mean that?" Mother Eve was taken in by that kind of "suggesting", don't let it be you too. YaHshua, our Savior, says angels do not marry, and they do not give in marriage but the Book of Enoch says otherwise (Mat 22:30). YaHshua our Savior says, no man has ever gone to heaven, but the Book of Enoch says otherwise (Jn 3:13). Satan told Eve, surely you shall not die, but the Word of God YaHWeH said otherwise (1 Cor 15:50). So, who should you believe? (John 3:18; 1:18, 1 John 4:12, 1 Cor 15:50)
Blogger Point # 3 - The contents of the Book of Enoch validate the bible, before the bible was ever written. When I read this book, it just strengthened my faith in God and the bible.
Servant’s Comment: So, without the Book of Enoch your faith would be lessened, can you, or will you dare say the same? Who needs the Book of Enoch? What purpose does it serve outside of the Scriptures we have? None. Ask yourself, where was this Book of Enoch, when you were called? Were you called by the words found in the Book of Enoch, or by the words you heard and read from the New Covenant writings of the Apostle of YaHshua? Some teach the false doctrine of angels having sex with humans, a Jewish fable about angels taking wives and having giant children. They like to quote from this Book of Enoch as proof, pushing this doctrine of lies.It is a packed with lies -- how can I say that? When a book of fables is taken as fact all we have to do is to first use common sense -- a mind with the ability to divide truth from lies, a mind that our creator gave us -- when it comes to some of the outrageous things mentioned in this false book (Giants 240 feet tall, eating up all of the animals and then eating people) and are then taken as fact, then we are guilty of giving up our good senses, a god given gift. If something is in question we should then go to other sources to see if the writing of this book, or other fantastic writings, can be supported by other historical authors and finally, really the first choice, we go to the Word of God, YaHshua, our Savior – what does He say, what does the Holy Bible say? There is no historical support for the Book of Enoch other than those quoting themselves and the quoting by other people chasing after this doctrine of devils. Listen to this word of truth:(2Ti 4:4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables.(2Pe 1:16) For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord YaHshua the Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.(Tit 1:13-14) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.There are many sources for this -- proving this "fable" as a Jewish source, and comes from the mythical side of Judaism (Ultra-Orthodox, some Orthodox, and the kabala groups quote from the Book of Enoch as if it is scripture and some of it is agreed to by the Pharisaic writings supposed to have come from the Oral Torah -- what rubbish. Not all of our Jewish brethern fall for this, and are able to divine the truth apart from the peer pressures their Jewish teachers, which still has an influence, as you will see. The following link is a good Jewish source for a balanced handling of this subject -- This source presents the error in this line of thinking and does admit a certain teaching by Jewish and Israeli beliefs in fallen angels. Be aware, however, they do not condemn this writing as false, they only raise some good questions about origins and beginnings. It is a good source to see the differences and what is accepted and what is questioned or in question. As believers of the New Covenant we are instructed not to pay too much attention to Jewish fables, it is as simple as that -- 1 Tim 1:4; 4:7 & (Tit 1:14) "Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth). -- Notice that we are not to even listen to the "commandments" of men who teach or say or support these things. On the one hand our Lord instructed listeners to obey the words of the religious leaders of that day, but not to do as they do, but to do as they say -- Mat 13:1-3 -- and this we see changed after the New Covenant is instituted, "Not giving heed ... and commandments of men, that turn from the truth" . You do not have to obey or listen to or give 'heed' to anyone trying to fill your head full of garbage. Yes, respectful of authority but not blind to the lies and deceptions and false teachings of anyone, no matter their rank, if they are leading you or others astray. Please take the time to read the verse I have provided, from your own bibles.
YaHshua plainly says -- angels are neither male nor female -- and He also says that when we, the sons and daughters of God today (2 Cor 6:18), enter eternity like the angels, neither marrying nor giving in marriage, with Spirit bodies quickened, literally born again. In other words, no need to reproduce but love will endure, a better more fulfilling love. Our moments of ecstasy will be greater and more uplifting than we can imagine. Too many cannot imagine life without sex -- our Heavenly Father says that we cannot imagine the things He has in store for us. I would like to find out, wouldn't you?(Mat 22:30) For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.Some teachers make an unbelievable statement when confronted with the verse. One great Christian thinker admitted to being confounded by this saying from our Savior. He said he was puzzled -- as opposed to just believing our Lord and puzzling over his false teaching -- then, one day, he said, it dawned on him, "He is not talking about angels on earth, but in Heaven." And the echo could be heard in the mouths and minds of others saying, "Ah, so this is talking about ‘angels in heaven’, not on earth". That, they say is now the truth – incredible, absolute incredible denial of the truth. These words from our Messiah, YaHshua, are a comparison of the resurrected humans to angels, not to a place but to a condition and there is no suggestion whatsoever that angels change when they visit Earth so they can have sex with humans. I suppose our Savior should have included the whole universe in His comparison so someone would not come along and twist His meaning and His revelation. Preachers that have been tagged as genius have used this faulty reasoning in attempts to support their lust for this false teaching – shame on them.These teachers are ultimately saying our Messiah and Savior is not telling us the truth, or at the least is being misleading. Should we believe our Savior or the words from a book that is of questionable sources? If you accept the pure word and what it plainly says, which is what our Savior clearly is saying then it is not you and it is not me that make this judgment, though we should be qualified to do just that, but it is the judgment of our God and Savior, by His word, not ours.
Blogger Point # 4 - Now, Peter & Jude both quoted favorably from the Book of Enoch and called Enoch a prophet. That means that if the bible identifies Enoch as a prophet, then we should expect prophesies from that prophet, in the form of writings in which prophecies were recorded in.
Servant’s Comment: Rubbish. "Speak favorably?" Again the author of this blog interjects his own desire. Hebrews 11:5, speaks of Enoch finding favor with YHWH through faith and that he was "translated" to some other place, taken somewhere after living 365 years. I’m guessing YHWH did this for Enoch so he would not have to see how horrible mankind was becoming, but then that is a guess, an assumption or suggestion on my part, not actual, first hand knowledge. Nowhere does it say he was taken to Heaven, either, that has to be assumed or guessed with no real support. Again, to say he went to Heaven would contradict what our Lord told us, and He should know, "...no man has asscended up to Heaven...". The wording, "no man" in the Greek is actually, by today's language, "no one", or "no person", and the rest of the verse tells us, in essence, other than our Lord YaHshua who is Himself from Heaven. Let YaHshua remind us of this fact, this true biblical fact from the mouth of our Savior –
(John 3:13) And no man has ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.(John 1:18) No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.(1Jn 4:12) No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us.Again the author and others lusting after this worship of angels deny the truth revealed to us by YaHshua, our Savior. Who are you going to believe? Enoch was taken, where we do not know but one place he did not go and that is to Heaven. He is not still alive, he had 365 years.Also, the letter to the Hebrews in chapter 22 verse 5 that this blog author refers to was written by the Apostle Paul, not Peter. The other place in the New Testament where Enoch is mentioned is in Jude 1:14. What this verse really points out, and is missed by most, is that the Gospel of the Coming of the Kingdom, the Coming of YaHshua as King of Kings was preached to the sons of Adam by Enoch. Not all preachers of "faith" are prophets in the sense most think of prophets today. King David was called a prophet, as well as Moses and they too preached the Kingdom of God to come. But, in the New Testament we read of prophets, and prophetess in the church but we have none of their writings, only a record of their existence in the first century church. Two small remarks mentioning Enoch and even less of others called prophets except for the accepted writings of the Prophets of Israel. Enoch was never considered as being a part of the Holy Bible. The Book of Enoch never existed until much later, not 4000 years before the Messiah.
Blogger Point # 4 - Enoch was not quoted once, but at least 2 times by different prophets. In the bible, all God’s prophets reaffirm one another. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. (Can we say that this is a coincidence that God tells us this verse twice in the bible? – Deuteronomy 19:15, & 2 Corinthians 13:1)
Servant’s Comment: Enoch is mentioned, but is he quoted? No, he is not quoted. Two things are established by the two witnesses. First, that Enoch existed and the second is that Enoch preached the Gospel of the Coming Kingdom – Jude 1:14. A Book of Enoch is not quoted, as are the other prophets, so what we have is confirmation that a man lived during the time Adam lived. That’s it, nothing to support the fictional writings of what is called, the Book of Enoch. This is a word of mouth reference and not a Book or prophetic book reference as we see in other places when it comes to about "books" -- Numbers 21:14, the Book of Wars is meantion, and then in 2 Chron 20:24, the book of Jehu is mentioned, books that are not found today, but did exist at one time. But, where is the "book of Enoch" mentioned? No where!
Blogger Point # 5 - If Enoch walked with God as a righteous man for 365 years as the bible stated, then the man would of have to had been inspired by God to write what he wrote, even more so than those who wrote the Old testament who were not as righteous of the level of Enoch, nor lived as long as Enoch.
Servant’s Comment: Again, this is all based on a false premise. Enoch preached the Gospel to the sons of Adam and Enoch live 365 years. That’s it. Paul said that Enoch did not see death, that he was translated (Heb 11:5), but there is a problem here, this understanding would be a direct contradiction of our Savior's words, which Paul would have been aware of. Either Paul is a mistranslation, or Enoch is still here somewhere, having survived the flood, never seeing or experiencing death, etc., because our Savior tells us he cannot be in Heaven – read again, John 3:13 and John 6:46 and John 1:18 – three witnesses – 1John 4:12 a forth scriptural witness -- after all, if you are in Heaven certainly you would see God? YaHshua tells us no man has ever gone to Heaven, outside of visions or dreams, no flesh and blood person has ever gone to Heaven. So, this translation of Enoch must mean something else, and the "not seeing death" is alluding to something else, or it is a biased opinion inserted by a translator or scribe to support a personal belief or teaching. There is also another very real possibility -- even today we use terms like, "the Lord took him", when we mean death, not that our Lord actually took our loved one away to Heaven -- of course there are some who believe you go to heaven right after death, but really, when we go to a funeral we see the body, don't we. In Enoch and Moses case the body was never seen but each are said to have only lived a certain number of years.Genesis tell us Enoch "lived" 365 years -- what comes after "lived", death, of course. From that one remark we can determine Enoch died after 365 years -- we are told the exact number of years and no mention of eternity, at least not yet, not before the "resurrection". If he were living eternally his years would most certainly be more than 365. We can see all kinds of problems with sending Enoch to Heaven and giving him eternity before YaHshua, who is called the FIRST of many, the First Fruit, not the second or the third, which would be counting Elijah too. First Enoch, then Elijah, then our Savior? Hum, no, I don't think so, otherwise you might as well toss all of the New Testament out because it is based upon our Savior, YaHshua, being the FIRST of many born of the God of Heaven. (James 1:18, Hebrews 12:23, 1 Cor 15:20; 23)
(John 3:3) YaHshua answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (YaHshua's words, "Except a man be born again", and to be born from this flesh to eternal Spirit will require the "resurrection")
Blogger Speaks: Having been given all these points to begin with; I also found that the opening of the book of Enoch begins with explaining that the book is intended for a future & distant generation far off. I tend to believe, we are that generation. That would explain the book resurfacing in the 1940's in the dead sea scrolls, along with many other books from the bible.
Servant's Comments: If you read the reference quoted from Barnes Notes at the beginning of this presentation you will have seen that this Book of Enoch is a translation, and of questionable sources, produced in 1821 AD. This is not a "resurfacing" in the 40's from the Dead Sea Scrolls, much less having survived the Flood, as the defenders of this Book assume, suggest, teach lie upon lie -- oh, sorry, not wanting to offend -- assumption upon assumption.
Blogger Speaks: Now, since the book explains the origins of demons and the fall of certain angels that fornicated with women, that also explains, witchcraft, drugs, and our technology and so called UFO and alien sightings. (The book of Enoch says that the fallen angels taught humans these things.)
Servant’s Comment: Wow, so now it is the giant offspring, the result of angels fornicating with flesh and blood that led to the fall of man -- no wait, not fornicating, because they "married" women, so it would not be "fornicating", it would be legal sex, shared sex, or intercourse as married couples -- remember, they took wives (I'm being sarcastic).NOT SONS OF GOD? -- let us reason: These angels would never be called "sons of God" if they were "fallen angels". It would be far more likely they would be called devils and demons, or the "angels of Satan" (Mat 25:41). If it were really fallen angels it would simple have said so, like, "and fallen angels, or demons took wives", what bunk. And then we are told that these Sons of fallen angels became the giants (Nephilim) of the Earth? To say, suggest, that angels can have offspring means they have sperm and a male part, and, gee, like men have trouble controling their libido. Opps, wait a minute -- Yahshua said angels are neither male nor female. This is idea that fallen angels or any angel can have intercourse with human women and have children by them is all nonsense and borders, as I have said before, on the worship of angels, the worship of demon angels, and, perhaps is blaspheme against the miraculous birth of our Savior -- after all, if angels are able to procreate then the birth account of our Lord would not mean much, after all, angels have been able to do this all along, right? What nonsense.When I read my Bible I see nothing about the giant children as tall as 240 feet (that's what the Book of Enoch says: Enoch 7:3-6) and there is no mention whatsoever, about angels teaching mankind anything. What We I do read is that the children of Cain were talented inventors and developed iron work and the making of musical instruments, city builders, but not one word about any angel teaching them (Gen 4:17, 21-22). I suppose we humans are blameless, according to this false teaching that angels taught man everything -- on top of this, according to the Book of Enoch, it is the fallen angels that are the cause of man’s fall, and so we are blameless and have no need of a Savior as it is not the 'fall of man" but the fall of angels that brought all of this about. We are told, in the Book of Enoch that it is an angel, Azazel, that taught man how to manufacture metals from the earth, and, of course, from this come weapons of war. It is these fallen angels that teach mankind how to read and write as well, and this would be the beginning of innocents lost. But, guess what, if you align what the Bible says to what the Book of Enoch says, the discovery and development of metal work began hundreds of years before at the hands and mind of Tubalcain, not Azazel, as the account is given in the Book of Enoch. This teaching in iron work by Azazel would have had to have happened AFTER the fallen angels were supposed to have taken wives, but the Holy Bible clearly contradicts this --(Gen 4:22) And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. ("artificer", means, fabricator, or mechanic).This happened a full two chapters before angels were supposed to have taken wives in Genesis 6. Also, when we consider the account between Adam and his Creator, we see a teaching taking place. YaHWeH brings animals before Adam to see what he will name them. This would suggest a language, and all languages, even primative languages lead to writing. YaHWeH was instrumental in teaching mankind a language and the ability to write.The line of thinking used by this Blogger and others undermines the Gospel message and the reason YaHshua had to come as our Savior. It is a denial of Yahshua as Savior and putting the blame for our sin on others, on the angels. Remember that old excuse, "The devil made me do it", therefore it is not me but the devil angel that is at fault. We have seen how the claims from the Book of Enoch do not, I repeat, do not align with Scripture -- Genesis, chapter 4 clearly tells us on thing while Genesis 6, according to the false Book of Enoch tells us another.
Blogger Speaks: We actually have an explanation for the Hindu gods, advance civilizations, and so called "aliens from other planets". Now, knowing this, and knowing how the churches are being controlled, should we wonder why the main stream churches deny and fight against the book of Enoch? Every program we see on TV concerning the book of Enoch, all dismiss it & sway the audiences into not believing in the book. We see the same exact thing in the 501c3 mainstream state churches. People are being taught & conditioned to believe that the book is either fake, or heresy. This is designed to keep people away from learning the truth about fallen angels, demons, & aliens which are closely one of the same.
Servant’s Comment: We are told in the New Testament scriptures that as we approach the end days of man’s rule there will be a falling away and we are told about the end-time church thinking it is spiritually rich but is not. Every indication is that there is great delusion and deception from what was understood before. What was understood before? Read the New Testament and we know the message of Christ, we know the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God. So, as we approach the end days are we then to trust new, different, strange teachings as being the real truth uncovered, or should we be suspicious. It would make sense to me, and I hope you, that anything we hear now, that has not been preached before by the Apostles or from the mouth of YaHshua should be ignores so we, the elect, are not taken in by this delusion. And here is the warning –
(2Th 2:9-11) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
(2Th 2:3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
A falling away first, before He returns, and what do you suppose that means? What it means to me is that those who buy into the lying wonders, all deceivableness shadowed in the false appearance of righteousness will being in a time when professing believers will fall from the original truth and accept the lies as truth, things that excites their natural lusts, with images of angels, or aliens from outer-space having sex with humans. Then God will confirm their lust for the doctrine of demons by putting a strong delusion, like the point of no return. This will be like their Creator saying, ‘If this is what you want, then this is what you will get’.
Blogger Speaks: Now, since I have done a lot of reading & a lot of research, I recognize the teachings of the 501c3 church & I know when people are just quoting other people and passing it as facts. This is what this writer from jesus-is-savior.com has done when he echoes exactly what the 501c3 pastors teach in their state churches against Enoch.
Servant’s Comment: Here we see the pot calling the kettle black.
There is more to this exchange but this should serve to put you on the alert and to look into the matter with caution, if you want. The following website is a good source for exposing this false teaching and is worth a look -- know your enemy. This idea that every one, or organization that has accepted a TAX FREE statis is government controled and part of the system is nuts. Yes, there are some, that for tax reasons preach a message that will not jepordize their tax free rights, and there are those who have built religious empires on tax free bases, but is it really wrong for these chruches to take advantage of tax relief when it is offered? No. In the end a true work may have to make a choice, and some have, but until that time comes, a work using the tax laws in a law abiding way is no more in error than anyone else. The self-righteousness of the accusers is astounding. The ox is worth its hire and the laborer in the fields is worth their pay and to suggest that the Tax exempt works are evil is a blaspheme among the "varied" workers in the field, the field being the World. Almost makes me want to cuss. No, I do not claim a tax free status but I don't find fault with those that take advantage of this either. This is used by some to claim these religious works are working for the Beast. If that is the case then we are all working for the Beast if we pay taxes. There are wicked people, to be sure, taking advantage of the tax free offer and abiding by it and fearful of losing this status and because of this would willgly bend to the governmental control rather than lose this status. But, on the other hand, if this became a choice, under duress, and a choice had to be made, I honestly believe as many would reject this tax free status as would, in order to stay true to the truth, as they understand it. To me it is a another kind of evil that condemns those, in today's world, tathat this legal advantaged, that are in the wrong and are filled with 'sel
One more thing when considering the Book of Enoch as fact or fiction -- In this book of fables, we have the outrageous tale of the "giants", eating all the sheep and other animals ultimately turning on men and eating them, but before this we have the number of the rebel angels -- 200 in number, meeting to agree to a common goal of rebellion.

Jude tells us that even Enoch taught there were tens of thousands of angels. The Book of Enoch is not the book of the Enoch of Genesis 5, it is a fictional writing. Enoch chapter 6:6

I may follow up on this with the continuing debate. Time will tell. Hopefully this will serve as a heads up in the new age invasion preaching the doctrines of fallen angels copulating with flesh, having children, UFO abductions and other such nonsense, all ultimately leading to the denial of YaHshua as Savior. No, they do not say it outright and live in a kind of deception themselves, but the reality in this false teachings, this doctrine of demons, down plays the birth of our Savior, the miracle of God coming in the Flesh and elevates angels even above our Savior and gives them credit for something only Satan and his demons could desire in their twisted view. The Angels of our God are servants and they stand by on many occasions listening in to the conversations of the Children of God to hear what is revealed to them, and in this we see that it is not the Angels teaching us but they that are learning from us things our Heavenly Father makes known to us by His Spirit.
(1Pe 1:12) Unto whom it was revealed (prophets of old), that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
Here is a link to a youtube presentation that is really good -- have a look/listen -- It is not a group I endorse and I am not familiar with all of their teachings but this presentation is really good and cover much of what is covered here -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4GLYDw3lN4
