Enoch was Noah’s grandfather. He was the “seventh” man from Adam. This places the Book of Enoch as being around 5500 years old. Enoch was born 622 years after the creation of Adam, and that makes the Book of Enoch one of the oldest Books on planet Earth.
In this article, we will look at some of the texts provided in the Book of Enoch where we can find very interesting things that speak of the “Fallen Angels” and “The Nephilim”. Is it possible that we have overlooked ancient texts such as the Book of Enoch? Is it possible that these texts speak the truth about what happened to mankind in the distant past? If so why have we chosen to ignore these ancient texts? Because they do not seem to fit in our mainstream chronology?
“And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.”
“And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! The Watchers called me – Enoch the scribe – and said to me: Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children [Nephilim], The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain.”
“And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them…And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells [450 feet]: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind.
1 And Azazel 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.
2 And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways.
3 Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, ’Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokablel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .
1 And Uriel said to me: ’Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their SPIRITS ASSUMING MANY DIFFERENT FORMS are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to DEMONS as Gods, (here shall they stand,) till the day of the great judgment in
2 which they shall be judged till they are made an end of. And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become SIRENS.
So, after reading these chapters, is it possible that there is truth in them? Is it possible that the so called “fallen Angels” did in fact exist in the distant past? Is it possible that the Nephilim, lived among humans? If so, we ask again, why have we chosen to ignore what ancient man recorded in the past?
