The Book of Enoch confirms Jesus is God!
On April 23 2015, when Rafał was alone running the blog, he published the article “The Book of Enoch – BANNED Holy Book” (not translated into English yet but You can check this amazing Book HERE – CLICK HERE) in which he officially recognized it as the Word of God and shared her with the Readers.
Of course we share this position – if it was different, we would not certainly join him.
It is the turn to just on the basis of the testimony that God has given us through Enoch – to show the magnificence of our God, who alone saved his beloved people in a heroic mission.
It is indisputable for us that Enoch shows what the whole Word of God is – that the Savior, the Son of God, is God – The Creator ONE with His Father – the Spirit.
For the purposes of English translation of this article, let us recall the most important matters regarding The Book of Enoch.
There are three versions of the Book of Enoch: Ethiopian, Sinai and Hebrew. Their message is very different.
Ten fragments of The Book of Enoch (Ethiopian) have been found at Qumran in the Dead Sea Scrolls, it is known to have existed in its present form since at least the 2nd Century BC. The Apostle Jude in his Apostolic letter quotes from Ethiopian version, and therefore we consider this version to be inspired by God.
Let’s see what Judah testifies to us by referring directly to beginning of The Book of Enoch (Judah 1:14-15):
“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” ” Judah 1:14-15 (KJV Bible)
Note that the Apostle Juda not only quotes part of The Book of Enoch but … proves that Enoch was evidently a PROPHET! If we have such a RELIGIOUS testimony about Enoch and his Book, what “miracle” was it NOT considered inspired and thus not found in the canon of the Bible?
Would the holy Apostle use the Book that would not be inspired by God?
The Coptic Orthodox Church was the only one who included it in its canon of the Holy Bible as inspired.
Why did not the Catholic Church, the splits of Protestantism and other religious organizations accept this book?
When he gets acquainted with the Enoch testimony he wrote down, it is not difficult to answer this question, because he explains a lot about the angel’s rebellion, the creation of the world – and prophecies that are closely related to the rest of the Word of God that we have contained in the Bible.
Let’s move on after this brief introduction to the subject of this article.
The Book of Enoch confirms Jesus is God!
Let’s start then.
The first chapter of the Book of Enoch shows that Jesus is God!
“1. The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly. Enoch, a righteous man, who was with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me.
2. From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period, on account of the elect.
3. Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from hishabitation, the Holy and Mighty One, the God of the world:
4. Who will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested inthe strength of his power from heaven.
5. All shall be afraid, and the Watchers be terrified.
6. Great fear and trembling shall seize them, even to the ends of the earth. The lofty mountains shall be troubled, and the exalted hills depressed, melting like a honeycomb in the flame. The earth shall be immerged, and all things which are in it perish; while judgment shall come upon all, even upon all the righteous:
7. But to them shall he give peace: he shall preserve the elect, and towards them exercise clemency.
8. Then shall all belong to God; be happy and blessed; and the splendour of the Godhead shall illuminate them.
9. Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him.”
A beautiful testimony that in several “elements” shows that it is Jesus, whom we know from the testimony of the disciples chosen by him, and the Old Testament Word of God – this is the Holy and the Great.
And what evidence do we have for this?
“Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him”
Holy, Great and Eternal God comes to make a judgment.
If we acknowledge the Word of God which the Apostles testify, it is ONLY Jesus who is the Holy God who will make the judgment.
However, God can not be God Father ONLY because then the testimony of Enoch would be in contradiction not only with the Apostolic testimony but above all with the WORDS of the Savior:
“For the Father judgeth no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which has sent him.” Gospel of John 5:22-23
These words of our Savior already show that Enoch just testifies about Him at the very beginning of the Book!
Let us also pay attention to the very important testimony that the Savior also shows with His WORDS that if someone does not worship the Son, he does not give it to the Father.
And the most remarkable thing is that the Savior precisely specified which part should be given to Him – “as it is given to the Father”.
And who is His Father …?
THE G O D !
So he also needs to honor him AS GOD.
And this clearly shows the UNITY of the Father and the Son, which the Word of God testifies, because the Son must also be THE GOD.
There is no other possibility because “Whoever does not worship the Son does not worship the Father who sent him.”
This dependence of HONOURS FOR GOD also splendidly depict the WORDS of the Savior when he says:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO MAN comes unto the Father, BUT BY ME. If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him.” Gospel of John 14:6-7
These two wonderful testimonies testify to the same: Jesus, the Son is God and only by worshiping Him due to God – we can HONOUR and Worship THE ONE God who reveals himself in the UNITY of his Son and Father.
It should be noted that the Savior in His WORDS emphasizes the direction in which we can only reach God and give him due honor.
The direction is clearly defined that it starts ONLY from Him. And in Him just only we can glorify God, whose Majesty is revealed in the UNITY of his Son and Father.
These two statements of the Savior Himself show that EVERYONE who forsakes HONOUR and Giving up reverence to the DIVINE Son does not worship God the Spirit.
His WORDS also contradict that only the Father can be worshiped.
It is necessary to face the truth – if you worship ONLY of the Father, then you SKIP of the Son.
Let’s get back to our Judge – Saint and Great.
In the further part of the already mentioned statement in the Gospel of John, he confirms that he is the Judge and there is no other than Him:
“For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself; And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.” Gospel of John 5:26-27
Of course, the evidence from the Word of God does not need to be presented, that ONLY God is the Judge of the whole earth because world belongs to him and what is interesting … he emphasizes so many times that his Adjectives (in which he is the Power of the Court) will not give away to anyone.
The Judge’s testimony is UNANIMOUS and the Savior Himself explains it in His WORDS.
And the most interesting is that there is NO testimony from the Word of God that would say that whenever the authority of the Judgment, the Son would give back to the Father!
For believers in THE TRUTH included in the Word of God, this is NOT a problem because this is the UNITY of the Father and Son, which means that what the Son has and the Father has and the “apparent separation” of attributes serves us so that we can get to know God closer and then the ONLY God “begot” His Son in the human body on earth as the REFLECTION of His Divine Spirituality – for God the Father is the Spirit.
In the discussed beginning of The Book of Henoch, we still have some very important elements regarding the Holy God who is JUDGE.
On the presented evidence from other testimonies of the Word of God, we can clearly say that it is Jesus Christ.
Henoch gives us quite important “elements” that will accompany the arrival of the Holy Judge.
And they are:
* Eternal God, The Judge will come in the company of His host and saints.
* Holy and Great God will reveal himself in the power of his power.
* During the coming of the Eternal God there will be unprecedented phenomena – or rather you can say cataclysms that have never happened before!
* The Holy and the Great God, by his coming, will scare the inhabitants of the earth and the Watchers (angels – fallen)
Do other testimonies of the Word of God also indicate these circumstances for the coming of the Judge – the Savior – Jesus?
And in addition, they come from the mouth of our Savior:
“For as the lightning comes out of the east, and is seen even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Gospel of Matthew 24:27-31
Dear Readers, we have an almost identical testimony that Enoch proclaims about the coming of GOD!
The Savior in His WORDS testifies that he will fulfill all the conditions which the great men of God proclaimed for the second coming of God:
- during the coming there will be unprecedented phenomena like supernatural cataclysms
- He, Jesus, testifies that he will come with great power and glory!
- The Savior also gives us to understand that he will come with his angels, whom he will send to gather their chosen ones
- The Savior gives testimony that peoples will complain when he comes again, which is not a sign of joy but vice versa!
It is very important that the Savior spoke of His coming to His disciples. He knew perfectly well that the His Gospel would be broadcast on them, in which the teachings of future generations should also be absent. It was them who chose them to believe in Him and He was sure that their efforts would not be in vain!
And let’s see – Apostle Matthew gives us this wonderful prophecy which clearly shows that Jesus is just that Holy God, the Great who is the Judge!
It is not all that the Savior-God has left to future generations as proof of His divine UNITY with the Father!
Through the second disciple, John, we can again hear that the Savior is the God who will come to Judge.
Our Savior gave His beloved disciple a great vision:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he JUDGE and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that NO MAN knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth proceeds a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16
Does any of you, dear, have any doubts about the coherence of the testimony with the beginning of Henoch or the previously discussed Savior Words?
Of course, they do not contain all the same details but you can not accuse a contradiction in any case because:
- we have a testimony that Jesus comes with a host of angels
- we have a testimony of the great glory and majesty of Jesus because it is called titles belonging to God Himself – King of kings and Lord of Masters! (what we’ll do next, of course)
- well, we can not forget that Sitting on a horse is … JUDGE!
In the situation of another amazing, blunt and detailed description of the coming of God – in which the Savior Himself reveals himself – one should recognize that the testimony of The Book of Enoch testifies, like other Scriptures, that the Savior, Christ is God.
But in this testimony, which John wrote down, there is still a very important detail which also shows that the Savior is God.
It’s God’s Word:
” he had a name written, that NO MAN knew, but he himself.”
The Holy Apostle John testified that the Savior sitting on a white horse has a name written, which He KNOWS ONLY. No one else.
This is also irrefutable proof that he is God because if he would not be God and there would be some other god, it would be absurd if God did not know everything …
Of course, believing in the TRUTH, which God’s Word reveals to us of the UNITY of the Son and the Father, there is no problem to understand that.
However, if it is believed that ONLY God the Father is God and the Savior is not – it would be necessary to re-book The Book of Revelation as the opposite to his beliefs only in God as the Father.
And it is not possible to explain it in a logical and wise way – because you do not have to mention it based on the whole Word of God …
We would like to present to you other testimonies of the prophets which show that the Savior MUST be the God who comes to Judge.
“Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about. Put you in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall you know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.” Joel 3:12-17
Through the whole testimony of the Word of God TRUE, God’s worshipers know that the Savior is the LORD, our God and the JUDGE who lives in Zion!
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:30-31
“Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients GLORIOUSLY.” Isaiah 24:17-23
“Behold, the name of the LORD comes from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. You shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.” Isaiah 30:27-30
As we can see, the very beginning of The Book of Enoch is an amazing testimony, how consistent with the rest of the Word of God.
Words that MANIFESTLY testifies in its splendor that the One who saved us is – THE GOD.
Exactly with the God who will judge us and before whom everyone will have to bend their knees and give Him due respect to God.
We are already doing this with a great love and joy of thanksgiving for His wonderful gift of salvation, which He made with his own blood.
And do you thank Your Savior by giving due honor to Him?
We will show the verses for the order.
“In the latter days an example of judgment shall be made of them in righteousness before the saints; while those who have received mercy shall for ever, all their days, bless God, the everlasting King.
And at the period of judgment shall they bless Him for his mercy, as He has distributed it to them. Then I blessed God, addressing myself to Him, and making mention, as was meet, of His greatness. ” The Book of Enoch 26:3-4
Enoch wonderfully testifies to ONLY King – and in Eternal Supplement.
Interestingly, he writes about Him in the context of the God of greatness!
There is no doubt that these Titles in the word of God refer only to God the Father and His Son.
“1 Parable the second, respecting these who deny the name of the habitation of the holy ones, and of the Lord of spirits.
2 Heaven they shall not ascend, nor shall they come on the earth. This shall be the portion of sinners, who deny the name of the Lord of spirits, and who are thus reserved for the day of punishment and of affliction.
3 In that day shall the Elect One sit upon a throne of glory; and shall choose their conditions and countless habitations, while their spirits within them shall be strengthened, when they behold my Elect One, for those who have fled for protection to my holy and glorious name.
4 In that day I will cause my Elect One to dwell in the midst of them; will change the face of heaven; will bless it, and illuminate it for ever.
5 I will also change the face of the earth, will bless it; and cause those whom I have elected to dwell upon it. But those who have committed sin and iniquity shall not inhabit it, for I have marked their proceedings. My righteous ones will I satisfy with peace, placing them before me; but the condemnation of sinners shall draw near, that I may destroy them from the face of the earth.” The Book of Enoch 45:1-5
A wonderful testimony, how consistent and blunt with the Word of God – and especially with The Book of Revelation.
We have confirmation that He is the Chosen One – Jesus, will live with people on the new earth. And it is known that God is to live with people then …
Of course, we also have a blameworthy testimony of the Lord of Spirits Himself, who says that He will judge, decide on the sinners – and we know perfectly well that God the Father does not judge anyone because He gave the whole court to the Son!
Anyway, we know perfectly well WHO will judge just on the day of the Last Judgment what the wonderful The Book of Revelation shows us – Jesus.
Father (Lord of Spirits) and Son (Elected) = ONE!
“There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool, and with him another, whose countenance resembled that of man. His countenance was full of grace, like that of one of the holy angels. Then I inquired of one of the angels, who went with me, and who showed me every secret thing, concerning this Son of man; who he was; whence he was and why he accompanied the Ancient of days.
2 He answered and said to me, This is the Son of man, to whom righteousness belongs; with whom righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting uprightness.
3 This Son of man, whom you behold, shall raise up kings and the mighty from their dwelling places, and the powerful from their thrones; shall loosen the bridles of the powerful, and break in pieces the teeth of sinners.
4 He shall hurl kings from their thrones and their dominions; because they will not exalt and praise him, nor humble themselves before him, by whom their kingdoms were granted to them. The countenance likewise of the mighty shall He cast down, filling them with confusion. Darkness shall be their habitation, and worms shall be their bed; nor from that their bed shall they hope to be again raised, because they exalted not the name of the Lord of spirits.
5 They shall condemn the stars of heaven, shall lift up their hands against the Most High, shall tread upon and inhabit the earth, exhibiting all their acts of iniquity, even their works of iniquity. Their strength shall be in their riches, and their faith in the gods whom they have formed with their own hands. They shall deny the name of the Lord of spirits, and shall expel him from the temples, in which they assemble;
6 And with him the faithful, who suffer in the name of the Lord of spirits.”” The Book of Enoch 46:1-4
As we see, Jesus, the Son of Man, deserves to be worshiped, and we can conclude that the testimony of Enoch that it was the powerful and earthly kings who received the kingdom thanks … to Jesus.
And yet the testimony of the Word of God testifies that God gives permission for authority (and, of course, for everything that happens not only in heaven but above all in heaven – on earth).
There is a very important thing in this verse that is repeated many times more.
Namely, the point is to be praised, to honor the name of the Lord of Spirits.
This is very much emphasized by Enoch. What should not be a surprise, because in the Old Testament it is also very bluntly presented.
Already in the next two chapters we have such an amazing testimony:
“Therefore the Elect and the Concealed One existed in his presence, before the world was created, and for ever.
6 In his presence he existed, and has revealed to the saints and to the righteous the wisdom of the Lord of spirits; for he has preserved the lot of the righteous, because they have hated and rejected this world of iniquity, and have detested all its works and ways, in the name of the Lord of spirits.
7 For in his name shall they be preserved; and his will shall be their life. In those days shall the kings of the earth and the mighty men, who have gained the world by their achievements, become humble in countenance.
8 For in the day of their anxiety and trouble their souls shall not be saved; and they shall be in subjection to those whom I have chosen.
9 I will cast them like hay into the fire, and like lead into the water. Thus shall they burn in the presence of the righteous, and sink in the presence of the holy; nor shall a tenth part of them be found
10 But in the day of their trouble, the world shall obtain tranquillity.
11 In his presence shall they fall, and not be raised up again; nor shall there be any one to take them out of his hands, and to lift them up: for they have denied the Lord of spirits, and his Messiah. The name of the Lord of spirits shall be blessed.” The Book of Enoch 48:5-11
We have a unique opportunity here to learn in the name of the Lord of spirits is preserve (salvation).
And thus it is obvious that the name of the Lord of Spirits will be BLESSED!
In the Old Testament, we are also strongly witnessed by God Himself that it is in His Name that there is salvation and hope for people.
But let us now look at the testimony that the New Testament gives us, which in this context interests us:
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Gospel of John 1:11-14
John testifies that in the Name of Jesus we become children of God! In fact, this testimony at the very beginning of the Gospel shows us that Jesus IS God.
If He were not, then it would be necessary to recognize the Gospel of John as HERESY and testimony AGAINST God of the Old Testament!
Of course, “if” … and we know that “if” has no right to exist in this very important relationship of the Father and the Son, which we have already shown in the countless proofs of the Word of God in our articles.
It is worth paying attention to the testimony that the Apostle Matthew gives when the Angel appeared to Joseph:
“But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Gospel of Matthew 1:20-21
Of course, we have already shown it, but in the reminder it is worth to put in this article as well.
In the Gospel of Matthew we also have a reminder of the words of the Old Testament God uttered by the prophet Isaiah:
“Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
And IN HIS NAME shall the gentiles trust.” Gospel of Matthew 12:18-21
The very fact that the Old Testament God testified and the Apostle Matthew himself reminisces this means that the Father and the Son ARE ONE – they are ONE and THE SAME God in Two “Persons” – Father of the Spirit and Son of Man.
If we disconnect this unity, it is not only necessary, as we have shown for a long time, to reject the ALL Apostolic testimony, but also to acknowledge God’s words from Isaiah’s prophecy as absurd and contradictory to his other statements. Unjustified and completely illogical.
The point is that so many times God complains that He is One and will not give glory and honor to anyone, that in His Name is the salvation and hope of the nations and here he says that in the name of someone else, the nations will hope?
Where would the sense and logic of God’s witness be here ??
Of course it would be absurd if it was true because as we have shown emphatically – the Father and the Son are ONE. And this UNITY of DIVINE is only able to defend the logic and wisdom of the Word of God – and thus God himself.
However, if we divide the Father’s DIVERSITY with the Son, we will come to the absurd and stupid record in the Word of God, which certainly would not be worthy of the wisdom of God Himself.
Let’s move on to the amazing testimonies that Enoch gives of God Jesus:
“1 In those days shall the earth deliver up from her womb, and hell deliver up from hers, that which it has received; and destruction shall restore that which it owes.
2 He shall select the righteous and holy from among them; for the day of their salvation has approached.
3 And in those days shall the Elect One sit upon his throne, while every secret of intellectual wisdom shall proceed from his mouth, for the Lord of spirits has gifted and glorified him.
4 In those days the mountains shall skip like rams, and the hills shall leap like young sheep satiated with milk; and all the righteous shall become like angels in heaven.
5 Their countenance shall be bright with joy; for in those days shall the Elect One be exalted. The earth shall rejoice; the righteous shall inhabit it, and the elect possess it. ” THe Book of Enoch 49:1-4
“1 In those days the saints and the chosen shall undergo a change. The light of day shall rest upon them; and the splendour and glory of the saints shall be changed.
2 In the day of trouble evil shall be heaped up upon sinners; but the righteous shall triumph in the name of the Lord of spirits.
3 Others shall be made to see, that they must repent, and forsake the works 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. The Lord of spirits will have compassion on them; for great is his mercy; and righteousness is in his judgment, and in the presence of his glory; nor in his judgment shall iniquity stand. He who repents not before him shall perish.
4 Henceforward I will not have mercy on them, saith the Lord of spirits.” The Book of Enoch 49:1-4
Another confirmation that in the name of the Lord Spirit is salvation …
And again confirming that it is the Lord of Spirits who is JUDGE !!!!
Exactly what was shown at the very beginning of the article based on the beginning of The Book of Enoch.
After all God the Father DOES NOT JUDGE anybody what we have clearly shown using the Word of God.
There can only be one punch line – the Father and the Son are THE ONE GOD!
And if you think otherwise, you must throw the name of this Jesus from the New Testament out of your mouth.
Otherwise you are only a HIPOCRYTE.
“And in those days shall the Elect One sit upon his throne, while every secret of intellectual wisdom shall proceed from his mouth, for the Lord of spirits has gifted and glorified him.” The Book of Enoch 50:3
We know from The Book of Revelation that Jesus will sit with the Father on the throne, and here we have beautifully presented that this is His elected throne.
Could Enoch have such a thing to write if he knew that Jesus is not God?
COURSE THAT NOT because then he would have sinned against God, calling His Throne the throne of somebody else.
Even God has worshiped the Chosen One – Elected One!
And do you worship him with the honor and glory that belongs to Him?
“6 Michael and Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel shall be strengthened in that day, and shall then cast them into a furnace of blazing fire, that the Lord of spirits may be avenged of them for their crimes; because they became ministers of Satan, and seduced those who dwell upon earth.
7 In those days shall punishment go forth from the Lord of spirits; and the receptacles of water which are above the heavens shall be opened, and the fountains likewise, which are under the heavens and under the earth.
8 All the waters, which are in the heavens and above them, shall be mixed together.
9 The water which is above heaven shall be the agent;
10 And the water which is under the earth shall be the recipient: and all shall be destroyed who dwell upon earth, and who dwell under the extremities of heaven.
11 By these means shall they understand the iniquity which they have committed on earth: and by these means shall they perish.” The Book of Enoch 53:6-11
Another example that the Lord of Ghosts punishes and therefore judges and yet we know that the Lord of spirits – the Father – does not judge anyone because … THE ALL judgment has been handed over to the Elected One – the Son
The only explanation can be – the Father and the Son are THE ONE!
1 Afterwards the Ancient of days repented, and said, In vain have I destroyed all the inhabitants of the earth.
2 And he sware by his great name, saying, Henceforwards I will not act thus towards all those who dwell upon earth.
3 But I will place a sign in the heavens; and it shall be a faithful witness between me and them for ever, as long as the days of heaven and earth last upon the earth.
4 Afterwards, according to this my decree, when I shall be disposed to seize them beforehand, by the instrumentality of angels, in the day of affliction and trouble, my wrath and my punishment shall remain upon them, my punishment and my wrath, saith God the Lord of spirits.
5 O ye kings, O ye mighty, who inhabit the world, you shall behold my Elect One, SITTING UPON THE TRONE OF MY GLORY. And he shall judge Azazeel, all his associates, and all his hosts, in the name of the Lord of spirits.” The Book of Enoch 54:1-5
A beautiful testimony of the Word of God.
Examples again showing the dependence of the judgment about which we have already shown so much.
But we have not moved so long ago that the Elect One will sit on His throne, and here the Lord of Spirits himself says that he will sit on the throne of HIS glories! And in addition, that the Elect One will judge!
If God the Father and the Son are not the One God, then these testimonies – as well as the whole Word of God – would put God as a manipulator, a shizophrenic and a creature who has no logic. EXACTLY!
“1 After this I beheld another army of chariots, with men riding in them.
2 And they came upon the wind from the east, from the west, and from the south.
3 The sound of the noise of their chariots was heard.
4 And when that agitation took place, the saints out of heaven perceived it; the pillar of the earth shook from its foundation; and the sound was heard from the extremities of the earth unto the extremities of heaven at the same time.
5 Then they all fell down, and worshipped the Lord of spirits.
6 This is the end of the second parable.” 55:1-6
Do we have any separations with Henoch what honor was given to the Lord of Spirits?
Is there a separation of praise and glory in relation to the Father and the Son in the other Word of God?
And as we have shown, it is THE SAME for the Son and the Father!
Suffice it to recall a great testimony from The Book of Revelation, which almost shows the same as the fall of the 24 elders and hosts in heaven to worship and glory, to whom …? To THE LAMB – to Jesus.
” 3 The saints shall exist in the light of the sun, and the elect in the light of everlasting life, the days of whose life shall never terminate; nor shall the days of the saints be numbered, who seek for light, and obtain righteousness with the Lord of spirits.
4 Peace be to the saints with the Lord of the world.” The Book of Enoch 56:3-4
From the Apostolic testimony of the New Testament, we know perfectly well who is light and justice, and in whom we receive peace.
Only in Jesus, God and our Savior!
But when the time shall come, then shall the power, the punishment, and the judgment take place, which the Lord of spirits has prepared for those who prostrate themselves to the judgment of righteousness, for those who abjure that judgment, and for those who take his name in vain.
That day has been prepared for the elect as a day of covenant; and for sinners as a day of inquisition.” 58:5-6
An amazing and even overwhelming position in The Book of Enoch – just like throughout the Word of God and especially in the book of Revelation!
If you do not give DUE to the Judge and DESPISE Judge, considering Him to be a HUMAN, think better of your behavior because Enoch warns against this SINFUL action.
And we know that there is a special elite who does this and, in addition, BLASPHEME God, referring notoriously to the Name of the Judge – but as we show it through the very Word of God in the articles – they do it IN VAIN!
“The angel, who proceeded with me, said, These are the measures of the righteous; and cords shall the righteous bring, that they may trust in the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and ever.” 60:3
Another confirmation of relying on the name of the Lord of spirits and it is still in a more blunt form – “for ever and ever”!
Another confirmation from Enoch that Jesus must be God, ONE with the Father because for him the testimony of the Word of God says that in his name the salvation and hope of the nations.
Great dependence of The Books of our wonderful God!
“Then they received the commandment, all who were in the heavens above; to whom a combined power, voice, and splendour, like fire, were given.
And first, with their voice, they blessed him, they exalted him, they glorified him with wisdom, and ascribed to him wisdom with the word, and with the breath of life.
Then the Lord of spirits seated upon the throne of HIS GLORY the Elect One;
Who shall judge all the works of the holy, in heaven above, and in a balance shall he weigh their actions. And when he shall lift up his countenance to judge their secret ways in the word of the name of the Lord of spirits, and their progress in the path of the righteous judgment of God most high;” 60:8-11
Another example is that worshiping, blessing and praising belong to Jesus.
Again, the throne of the Glory of the Spirits is HIS throne of glory!
We know that Judge is ONLY Jesus and Enoch calls Him the God most high!
Do you need any comment on it anyway after what we are already presenting?
“Thus the Lord commanded the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who dwell on earth, saying, Open your eyes, and lift up your horns, if you are capable of comprehending the Elect One.
The Lord of spirits sat upon the throne of his glory.
And the spirit of righteousness was poured out over him.
The word of his mouth shall destroy all the sinners and all the ungodly, who shall perish at his presence.
In that day shall all the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who possess the earth, stand up, behold, and perceive, that he is sitting on the throne of his glory; that before him the saints shall be judged in righteousness;
And that nothing, which shall be spoken before him, shall be spoken in vain.
Trouble shall come upon them, as upon a woman in travail, whose labour is severe, when her child comes to the mouth of the womb, and she finds it difficult to bring forth.
One portion of them shall look upon another. They shall be astonished, and shall humble their countenance;
And trouble shall seize them, when they shall behold this Son of woman sitting upon the throne of his glory.
Then shall the kings, the princes, and all who possess the earth, glorify him who has dominion over all things, him who was concealed; for from the beginning the Son of man existed in secret, whom the Most High preserved in the presence of his power, and revealed to the elect.
He shall sow the congregation of the saints, and of the elect; and all the elect shall stand before him in that day.
All the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who rule over the earth, shall fall down on their faces before him, and shall worship him.
They shall fix their hopes on this Son of man, shall pray to him, and petition him for mercy.
Then shall the Lord of spirits hasten to expel them from his presence. Their faces shall be full of confusion, and their faces shall darkness cover. The angels shall take them to punishment, that vengeance may be inflicted on those who have oppressed his children and his elect. And they shall become an example to the saints and to his elect. Through them shall these be made joyful; for the anger of the Lord of spirits shall rest upon them.
Then the sword of the Lord of spirits shall be drunk with their blood; but the saints and elect shall be safe in that day; nor the face of the sinners and the ungodly shall they thenceforwards behold.
The Lord of spirits shall remain over them:
And with this Son of man shall they dwell, eat, lie down, and rise up, for ever and ever.
The saints and the elect have arisen from the earth, have left off to depress their countenances, and have been clothed with the garment of life. That garment of life is with the Lord of spirits, in whose presence your garment shall not wax old, nor shall your glory diminish.” 61:1-18
The Lord of Spirits testifies that all those who do not accept Jesus as God will kneel before the Savior on the Judgment Day but it will be far too late and the only thing that will wait is shame on their face and the darkness that will cover their faces.
The further part of the testimony of God Himself is also addressed primarily to all those who do not give God’s glory worthy – Jesus and even humiliate Him to the essence of man:
“In those days the kings who possess the earth shall be punished by the angels of his wrath, wheresoever they shall be delivered up, that he may give rest for a short period; and that they may fall down and worship before the Lord of spirits, confessing their sins before him.
They shall bless and glorify the Lord of spirits, saying, Blessed is the Lord of spirits, the Lord of kings, the Lord of princes, the Lord of the rich, the Lord of glory, and the Lord of wisdom.
He shall enlighten every secret thing.
Thy power is from generation to generation; and thy glory for ever and ever.
Deep are all thy secrets, and numberless; and thy righteousness cannot be computed.
Now we know, that we should glorify and bless the Lord of kings, him who is King over all things.
They shall also say, Who has granted us rest to glorify, laud, bless, and confess in the presence of his glory?
And now small is the rest we desire; but we do not find it; we reject, and do not possess it. Light has passed away from before us; and darkness has covered our thrones for ever.
For we have not confessed before him; we have not glorified the name of the Lord of kings; we have not glorified the Lord in all his works; but we have trusted in the sceptre of our dominion and of our glory.
In the day of our suffering and of our trouble he will not save us, neither shall we find rest. We confess that our LORD IS FAITHFUL in all his works, IN ALL HIS JUDGEMENTS, and in his righteousness.
In HIS JUDGEMENTS he pays no respect to persons; and we must depart from his presence, on account of our evil deeds.
All our sins are truly without number.
Then shall they say to themselves, Our souls are satiated with the instruments of crime;
But that prevents us not from descending to the flaming womb of hell.
Afterwards, their countenances shall be filled WITH DARKNESS AND CONFUSION BEFORE THE SON OF MEN; from whose presence they shall be expelled, and before whom the sword shall remain to expel them.
Thus saith the Lord of spirits, THIS IS THE DECREE AND THE JUDGEMENT against the princes, the kings, the exalted, and those who possess the earth, in the presence of the Lord of spirits.” 62:1-16
Let us note that these sinners themselves admit that NOW they only know that they SHOULD praise and worship the Lord of Kings and the Kings who is over all kings – Jesus!
We see that it is exactly THAT SAME honor and glory due to the Lord of Spirits, which exactly Jesus says.
But their “late” reaction will not work for anything.
Darkness will be their home forever and ever!
But look at the very end of that statement of God Himself – he says that this is the DECREE and THE JUDGMENT he has issued over them.
It is that they HAD TO RECOGNIZE that Jesus is GOD and that he ought to be given honor and glory to Him!
This is the Law/Decree of God that Jesus himself brought, that HE HAD TO LISTEN all the earth, and that every inhabitant of earth should follow his teachings!
Because He is the THE God, Ruler, King, Creator and Judge!
Hence our Savior said bluntly:
“I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you believe not that I AM he, you shall die in your sins.” Gospel of John 8:24
The end of Enoch’s testimony is as blunt as all his message:
“In those days the angels shall descend into places of concealment, and gather together in one spot all who have assisted in crime.
In that day shall the Most High rise up to execute the great judgment upon all sinners, and to commit the guardianship of all the righteous and holy to the holy angels, that they may protect them as the apple of an eye, until every evil and every crime be annihilated.” The Book of Enoch 99:1-2
THE MOST HIGH – Jesus – Judge, will give a severe sentence to all those who have not exalted him with due reverence and glory; who, while reading the Scriptures, insulted Him to the rank of man and, in addition, misled other people by proclaiming a Savior who is HUMAN!
Let each one decide in his own conscience do follow the Truth of the Word of God.
