GF 55 Enoch' Prophecy
September 25, 2016
Part 55


The most comprehensive vision of Enoch is captured in the Book of Enoch in the chapter (18) entitled Prophecy of the Animals (85.1-90.42).

This Week

(18) Prophecy of the Animals (85.1-90.42)

Although Enoch says here that it was a dream, this is essentially a long and detailed prophecy. However, at a point the Watchers in heaven take hold of him and carry him up, where Enoch also claims to have witnessed these things in a panorama that appeared before him while he was with the Watchers in heaven.

He has written this chapter in a style that is consistent with his other writings, obviously in his own words, since his style is easily recognizable, particularly where the story is complicated.

It starts off with a kind of introduction as Enoch addresses his son Methuselah:

85.1 And after this I saw another dream, and I will show it all to you (that which he had written down), my son.

85.2 And Enoch raised his voice and said to his son Methuselah: “To you I speak, my son. Hear my words, and incline your ear to the dream vision of your father.”

The period covered by Enoch's book describing the runaways as fallen stars, starts at 86.3 and continues through to 88.3.

As we saw earlier, the words are almost the exact same description we find at the start of chapter 6 in Genesis– where Sons of God (Godlings in Hebrew) desired the daughters of men. These unholy, physical unions produce an offspring of giants (Nephilim - meaning
“to fall”, as in ‘swoop down’).

Most of the contents of prophecy are now history and are easily recognizable as Bible stories; but the end of it stretches off and extends into the future.

There are no specific names or dates given; different animals represent different nations or nationalities.

Take a look with me…

85.3 Before I took your mother, Edna, I saw a vision on my bed: - and behold - a bull came out of the earth, and that bull was white. And, after it, a heifer came out, and with the heifer came two bullocks, and one of them was black and the other red.

85.4 And that black bullock struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth, and from then on I could not see that red bullock.

85.5 But that black bullock grew, and a heifer went with it; and I saw that many bulls came out from it, which were like it, and followed behind it.

85.6 And that cow, that first one, came from the presence of that first bull, seeking that red bullock, but did not find it. And then it moaned bitterly and continued to seek it.

85.7 And I looked until that first bull came to it, and calmed it, and from that time it did not cry out.

85.8 And after this, she bore another white bull, and after this she bore many black bulls and cows.

85.9 And I saw, in my sleep, that white bull (Seth, the appointed seed), how it likewise grew and became a large white bull. And from it came many white bulls, and they were like it.

85.10 And they began to beget many white bulls that were like them – one following another.

86.1 And again, I looked with my eyes as I was sleeping, and I saw Heaven above, and behold, a star fell from Heaven, and it arose and ate and pastured amongst those bulls.

86.2 And, after this, I saw the large and the black bulls, and behold, all of them changed their pens, and their pastures, and their heifers. And they began to moan, one after another.

86.3 And, again, I saw in the vision and looked up at Heaven, and behold, I saw many stars, how they came down, and were thrown down from Heaven to that first star, and fell amongst those heifers and bulls. They were with them pasturing amongst them.

I’ve thought about not presenting the next few verses because of the raw nature of the language; but for those who tend to spiritualize the runaway Watcher Angels as entities less than fully incarnated beings, or as spirit-demons while upon the earth at this time, I have
decided to show you exactly what Enoch said here…

86.4 And I looked at them and saw, and behold, all of them let out their private parts, like horses, and began to mount the cows of the bulls. And they all became pregnant and bore elephants, camels, and asses.

86.5 And all the bulls were afraid of them, and were terrified in front of them. And they began to bite with their teeth, and to devour, and to gore with their horns.

86.6 And so they began to devour those bulls, and behold, all the sons of the Earth began to tremble and shake before them and to flee.

87.1 And again I saw them, how they began to gore one another, and to devour one another, and the Earth began to cry out.

87.2 And I raised my eyes again to Heaven, and saw in the vision, and behold, there came from Heaven beings that were like white men. And four came from that place, and three others with them.

87.3 And those three, who came out last, took hold of me by my hand and raised me from the generations of the Earth, and lifted me up onto a high place, and showed me a tower high above the earth, and all the hills were lower.

87.4 And one said to me: “Remain here until you have seen everything which is coming upon these elephants, and camels, and asses, and upon the stars, and upon all the bulls.”

Jump ahead…

89.6 And that vessel floated on the water, but all the bulls, elephants, camels, and asses sank to the bottom, together with all the animals, so that I could not see them. And they were unable to get out, but were destroyed, and sank into the depths.

89.7 And, again, I looked at that vision until those water channels were removed from that high roof, and the chasms of the Earth were made level, and other abysses were opened.

89.8 And the water began to run down into them, until the earth became visible, and that vessel settled on the earth and the darkness departed, and light appeared.

89.9 And that white bull, who became a man, went out from that vessel, and the three bulls with him. And one of he three bulls was white, like that bull, and one of them was red as blood, and one was black. And that white bull passed away from them.

89.10 And they began to beget wild animals and birds, so that there arose from them every kind of species: lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wildboars, foxes, badgers, pigs, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles, and ravens. But amongst them was born a white bull (Abram).

89.11 And they began to bite one another but that white bull, which was born amongst them, begat a wild ass and a white bull with it, and the wild asses increased.

NKJ Genesis 16:11-12

11 And the Angel of the LORD said to her: "Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the LORD has heard your affliction.

12 He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."

11 And the Angel of the LORD said to her…Hagar "Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, “God will hear” Because the LORD has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; Hebrew for Wild Ass Of A Manin construct “And he will become a wild ass of a man”

…a wild ass, as in the figure of willfulness, and living as a free roaming and prolific (fruitful) nomad.

Who is the “white bull” with it, also born of the white bull? Isaac

NKJ Genesis 17:15
Then God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.

It is interesting to note at this point that Abraham actually puts his vote in for Ishmael to become “the son of promise,” rather than the future Isaac; also, remember that he had initially recognized Eliezer (from having gone into his maidservant from Damascus) as his only son.

NKJ Genesis 17:18
And Abraham said to God, "Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!"

NKJ Genesis 17:19
Then God said: "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an
everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.

It is also interesting that 12 princes, or tribal chieftains, were to be born out of the Ishmaelites as well.

NKJ Genesis 17:20
"And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall
beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.

Enoch 89.12
But that bull (Isaac), which was born from it (Abraham), begat a black wild boar (Esau) and a white Sheep (Jacob), and that wild-boar begat many boars (chiefs of Edom) and that sheep begat twelve sheep (sons of Jacob).

89.13 And when those twelve sheep had grown, they handed one of their number (Joseph) over to the asses (“Gen. 37.27, “Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites…”), and those in turn, handed that sheep over to the wolves (“and they took Joseph to Egypt.”); and that sheep grew up amongst the wolves.

From 89.14 onwards is a description of the time in Egypt.

Enoch 89.14
And the Lord brought the eleven sheep to dwell with it, and to pasture with it amongst the wolves, and they increased and became many flocks of sheep.

Genesis 47:5-6
5 Then Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, "Your father and your brothers have come to you.
6 "The land of Egypt is before you. Have your father and brothers dwell in the best of the land; let them dwell in the land of Goshen. And if you know any competent men among them, then make them chief herdsmen over my livestock."

At (Enoch) 89.15, we get to events covered in the book of Exodus. There is a long section describing the life of Moses (1526 - 1406 BC) at 89.16 –38; which is probably the reason why Moses believed that Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5.22).

Genesis 5:22-24
22 After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.
23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.
24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

At (Enoch) 89.18 Aaron is introduced, and the parting of the Red Sea is described by the text at 89.24-25.

Crossing the river Jordan (1406 BC), 89.39, is chapter 3 in the book of Joshua. Also in this verse the Judges get a brief mention.

The ram at (Enoch) 89.41 is probably Samuel, followed by David (1010 - 970 BC) at 89.45. The dogs are the Philistines.

The time of Solomon (970 - 930 BC) is at 89.48 and the building of the Temple at 89.50 (the tower).

The period after Solomon starts at 89.51 with the deaths of prophets. The one saved, 89.52, is Elijah.

At (Enoch) 89.56, the statement, "he left that house of theirs," probably refers to the time of King Manasseh when the Levites took the Ark of the Covenant and left Israel (around 670 BC).

They also took Enoch's book, and eventually settled in Ethiopia. The lions in this part are the Assyrians.

The scene change at (Enoch) 89.59, probably coincides with the religious reforms under Josiah (620 BC).

Then there are the 70 shepherds; these are various religious leaders in Jerusalem since that time.

At (Enoch) 89.61 And he called another (this is a reference to someone other than Enoch), and said to him: “Observe and see everything that these shepherds do against these sheep for they will destroy from among them more than I have commanded them.

Enoch 89:62-64

89.62 And write down all the excess and destruction, which is wrought by the shepherds; how many they destroy at my command and how many they destroy of their own volition. Write down against each shepherd, individually, all that he destroys.

89.63 And read out in front of me exactly how many they destroy of their own volition and how many are handed over for destruction so that this may be a testimony for me against them. So that I may know all the deeds of the shepherds in order to hand them over for judgment. And I will see what they do, whether they abide by my command with which I have commanded them, or not.

89.64 But they must not know this, and you must not show this to them, but only write down against each individual in his time all that the shepherds destroy, and bring it all up to me.”

At 89.66 there is the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem by the Babylonians (587 BC).

Enoch 89.71
And the book was read out in front of the Lord of the sheep, and he took the book in his hand, read it, sealed it, and put it down.

The return after the exile (538 BC) is at 89.72. The three who return are Ezra, Haggai, and Zechariah, who each have books in the Bible.

The second temple period, is at 89.73, this is described in Malachi (450 – 400 BC) the last book of the Old Testament.

Enoch 89.75
But the Lord of the sheep remained still, until all the sheep were scattered abroad, and had mixed with them, and they did not save them from the hands of the animals.

89.76 And that one who wrote the book brought it up, showed it, and read it out in the dwelling of the Lord of the sheep. And he entreated Him on behalf of them, and petitioned Him, as he showed Him all the deeds of their shepherds and testified in front of Him against all the shepherds.
89.77 And he took the book, put it down by Him, and went out.

The second temple period, is at 89.73, this is described in Malachi (450 – 400 BC) the last book of the Old Testament.

Not enough, you say?

How about prophecy into the New Testament and beyond!

The eagles first appear in the story at 90.2 they are the Romans.

Fifty-eight of the shepherds have served their time by verse 90.5. The small lambs with open eyes (90.6) may be the Essenes.

At 90.8 there is the death of John the Baptist - by the ravens.At 90.17, the final twelve shepherds have their own

This must be the Christian era.

0.17 And I looked at that man, who wrote the book at the command of the Lord, until he opened that book of the destruction that those last twelve shepherds had wrought. And he showed, in front of the Lord of the sheep, that they had destroyed even more than those before them had.

The prophecy then goes into the future.

At 90.18, God strikes the earth in anger. This is the "second end" in the next section. There are no historically recognizable events after this, as the story goes far off into the future and only time will reveal its meaning.

“Near to the end of this section (104.11) Enoch encourages people such as me, who will come later and copy his book into other languages, to do it carefully and exactly – which I have tried my best to do.”

(20) Enoch’s Message of Guidance (94.1 – 105.2)

104.11 But when they write my words exactly in their languages, and do not alter or omit anything from my words, but write everything exactly, everything that I testified about before; then I know another mystery:

104.12 That books will be given to the righteous and wise and will be a source of joy and truth and much wisdom.

104.13 And books will be given to them, and they will believe in them and rejoice over them; and all the righteous who have learnt from them all the ways of truth will be glad.

105.1 And in those days, says the Lord, they shall call and testify to the sons of the Earth about the wisdom in them. Show it to them for you are their leaders and the rewards will be over all the Earth.

105.2 For my son and I will join ourselves with them,
forever, in the paths of uprightness during their lives.
And you will have peace.
Rejoice - you sons of uprightness!


We have to stop!

Next week: The interesting way God chose to judge the Nephilim; and a final word from Enoch to our generation.

Many will be surprised on the Day of Judgment when they discover that it was just as the Word of God says; only the righteousness of Christ is able to save you.All men are sinners and no one can save himself. God is just, so He must punish sin; but He is also merciful, moreover gracious, and offers His Son as the perfect sacrifice in order to purchase a place for you in heaven, which He offers to you as the free gift of eternal life. As we continue to examine man’s earliest duties with regard to the covenant of works, although they can be categorically divided into two distinct types of classes; one in relationship with God, and the other in relationship with fellow man, all covenant stipulations are expressions of the will of the Lord. The law of the covenant is the law of man’s image-sonship.

Jesus is God Incarnate

In order to pay the debt of our sins, He came from Heaven, having been sent by the Father, where He lived a life of perfect obedience to the Father even unto the shameful death upon the cross in order to pay the debt of your sins.This gift must be received by faith, believing that Jesus’ perfect life and Cross Work was His complete and necessary Atonement for your sins, in your behalf.Faith is a gift that comes by the Power of God the Holy Spirit working in a person’s innermost being. The Holy Spirit has the authority and power to quicken your dead spirit, to make it come to life. If you have not done so before this moment, ask Jesus to forgive you your sins, tell Him you’ve stop trying to be your own savior, and ask Him to come into your life right now, and to give you eternal life. Then, in faith believing, thank Him for the gift that He is giving you, the one He paid for in full in your place, in Jesus’ name,AMEN
