FALSE PROPHETS AND RELIGION 2
Many modern translations, and many so called “lost and secret” books of various disciples and persons close to God, are possibly lost and secret for a reason…they are false witnesses to the Truth of the Word. That is why Christ warns us not to add or take away from the message that was inspired by the Lord Himself. If we need to know it, it is with in the pages of the KJV.
Pearl, here, gives her take on the book of Enoch, and to me it says it all. False Prophets abound, whether from the present or the past.
God bless you Pearl for researching these subjects until you find those nugets of pure truth that many need to hear.
Pearls of Wisdom 4
“The Book of Enoch” does not say THE SAME THING as my own KJV Bible says. I know, because I have read them BOTH in depth!! And “The Book of Enoch” ADDS a whole new doctrine to confuse those who are still unsure of what the Bible says. I KNOW because I was one who has been “sucked into” Dispensationalism as well as belief in that whole concept of “spiritual beings” having the ability to procreate with human females….producing “giants”. So, let’s analyze this, shall we?
Jesus said this is NOT POSSIBLE! “The Book of Enoch” says that it is! I’ll bet you can guess Whom I believe now!
Revelation 22:18…”For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of THIS BOOK (the Holy Bible…KJV or other translations from the Textus Receptus), if ANY MAN (including the “man” who penned the words in “The Book of Enoch”) shall ADD unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this (the Bible) book.”
“The Book of Enoch” not only ADDS WORDS, but it ADDS whole NEW DOCTRINES. Doesn’t anyone even THINK about that one?? Those who actually BELIEVE the lies are also under the plague curses of God.
Quoting from my Bible in Genesis chapter 6, which I have opened and in front of me, “There were giants in the earth in those days, ……” (these are the days that “sons of God” came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them).
Who are the “sons of God”?? Those who are created in the image of God….MEN, like Adam. Are “angels” created in the “image of God”? If so, scripture and verse, please! We are told that “man” is, but nowhere are we told that “angels” are. Nor are we told that “angels” are called “sons of God”.
If so, scripture and verse, please! Angelic creatures, who are “spiritual” (and unseen) DO NOT have the ability to procreate. Jesus told us this in Matthew 22:30. Angels DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN because they are not created that way. The “spiritual” cannot have sexual relationships with a “terrestrial” being. One is FLESH, and one is SPIRIT. The idea of this comes from occult worship (Satanic) with the belief in the “Incubus” and the “Succubus”, but these beliefs are highly UN-BIBLICAL.
[BTW, The Book of Job has “sons of God” in 1:6 and 2:1, but those verses DO NOT define these people as “angels”. This is only the assumption of men. God has not defined any angel as a “son of God”, but there are many places that define “sons of God” as believers, in the NT]
And, if any normally-sized woman actually THINKS about having a “giant” baby, it would rip her apart!! A “spiritual” being does not have spermatazoa, which is necessary to conceive a child. If so, scripture and verse, please!
What about the “giants” in the earth in those days?? People grew very big (in fact, HUGE) in those days due to very different atmospheric conditions on the earth before the flood. These “giants” were NOT the “offspring” of angels (fallen or otherwise) because they were fully human (people).
Piece of link article:
Roman Emperor Maximinus was 8 foot 6 inches tall about 2,000 years ago. This is where we get our word maximum from. A 9 foot 8 inch skeleton was found in Indiana.
A skeleton 10 feet tall was found in Humbolt Lake, Nevada. In Guam, they have a legend that giants used to live on the island of Guam and built the big “Latte” stones found there.
In Indiana, 8 giants were found ranging from 8 to 9 feet long wearing heavy copper armor. The museum was not interested in them. Why would a museum not be interested in 9 foot skeletons to put on display? Could it be that there is a theory called evolution, which says we started off small and we are getting bigger? The reason that they don’t want these skeletons is because it goes against their theory. The truth is, people were much bigger before the Flood and now we are getting worse.

And that’s the TRUTH, and not the “tall tales” of “The Book of Enoch”. People just don’t seem to THINK and have the ability to separate truth from lies because they believe everything they hear (from Pastors) and read (from every book except the Bible).
As for “The Book of Enoch”, I did find some very good articles which I believe are well-worth reading and considering. These are a couple of the LEAST “sensational” ones I found. But they are understandable and make very good sense:
One small piece (and there are many other proofs that “The Book of Enoch” should NOT be read as “inspired” scripture:
“And that’s the problem here: there were No Jews Prior To The Flood, but Enoch is full of Jewish terminology; Abram is the ninth generation after the Flood (Arpachshad is 1st post-Flood), and AbRAHam is the first Jew, by faith (evidenced by circumcision, see Rom4). Yet you’ll find commentators frequently observe that the Book of Enoch was translated from Hebrew (text doesn’t exist in Hebrew, but is supposedly full of Hebraisms). Well, Hebrew didn’t exist, until after the Flood. So it’s not Enoch’s native tongue. There shouldn’t even BE anything Jewish in the book. Abram was the first Hebrew, the first one circumcised. His 6th-generation-back ‘father’ Eber (from which many think “Hebrew” is derived) — was born 65 years after the Flood. Are you beginning to get the impression something is amiss with this Book?
The very name “Enoch” is Hebrew, and that, because MOSES wrote the name that way. It is really “Chanuch” or “Chanoch” (guttural soft ch sound, not “chat”room). Name means “Dedicated”, “Devoted”, idea of being Totally Set On God. “Chanukah” comes from the same root. But we don’t know the original actual name for “Dedicated” in that language. Moses is TRANSLATING, and he’s getting the information Directly From God. So any “Book of Enoch” is by definition a translation, not an original-language text. Just the same, it shouldn’t be dealing with things Jewish AT ALL.

And this one brings out another aspect of why “The Book of Enoch” should NOT be read as TRUTH from God:
Piece of link article:
The Bible never mentions an angel named Phanuel, let alone an angel who is set over the repentance of those who inherit eternal life. What blasphemy! That statement in itself contradicts everything the Word of God teaches. We read in 1st Timothy 2:5 that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Mediator between God and men, not some angel named Phanuel… “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Repentance is strictly between a man and Jesus Christ alone. Only Jesus died for our sins, and shed His blood to pay for them (1st Peter 1:18-19); therefore, we must be diligent to guard and defend against LIARS and imposters who would lead people to believe otherwise. 1st John 2:22 clearly indicts all Christ-deniers as LIARS, guilty before God.
Here’s chapter 48:1-3…
1 And in that place I saw the fountain of righteousness Which was inexhaustible: And around it were many fountains of wisdom: And all the thirsty drank of them, And were filled with wisdom, And their dwellings were with the righteous and holy and elect. 2 And at that hour that Son of Man was named In the presence of the Lord of Spirits, And his name before the Head of Days. 3 Yea, before the sun and the signs were created, Before the stars of the heaven were made, His name was named before the Lord of Spirits.
Was the Son of Man named? When was Jesus named in Heaven? This is an attack on the deity of Jesus. Jesus Himself claimed in Revelation 1:8, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Jesus is Eternal, without beginning or end. Head of Days? Lord of Spirits? These terms are NOT found in the Bible. IF the Book of Enoch were valid, composing well over 100 chapters, there should be numerous New Testament references to it; but there aren’t. Although some people claim that the Bible quotes the Book of Enoch over 100 times, this is simply not true. Just as the Qur’an, the Book of Enoch borrows from the Word of God. In sharp contrast to the Book of Enoch, the New Testament often quotes the Book of Genesis.
There you have it, in BLACK AND WHITE! They are WORDS, and thoughts, and proofs that one can OBJECTIVELY analyze. Watching a video is very SUBJECTIVE because there are some very “smooth talkers” who label themselves “Christians” who don’t have a clue about Who God really is and what His plan is for mankind.
Yes, one can get excitement from all these “new things” they can learn. (I, myself, did at one time.) But, they can’t possibly understand the “quiet excitement” which grows within the “inner man” who has “died to the flesh” when he hears the truth. To them, this kind of blasphemy read from “The Book of Enoch” is abhorrent.
And the truth must be told!
Amen Pearl!! My spirit testifies to this truth! Anything added is suspect, and can be a game changer that sends millions in the wrong direction.
JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!
