This is a fairly brief reading but this book of 1 Enoch is amazing, spiritual, heavenly and full of materiel we all should grasp. It had been part of the canon of Scripture. Jesus quoted from it and so did Peter, Jude. The early Church read it, loved it but later some of the carnal leaders removed it. the manuscripts remained lost and hidden away until a couple of centuries ago, Three were discovered in Ethiopia, by Bruce, a to find a home in France England. Scholars translated it into English, This was done from the Ethiopian by Richard Laurence who died in A.D.1838. In 1820 Richard Laurence transalted it also. They can be seen parallel on line. Also, they can be purchased. There is another, The Secrets of Enoch. I do not recommend 2 Enoch or 3 Enoch in general. It was removed from the Canon by certain church leaders. Obviously, carnality opposed the spirituality in the book, even though the KJV e.g., says ‘Enoch walked with God and he was not because God took him’. Many churches have believed he was a type of the translation of the church at the second coming of Jesus Christ. Some translations read ‘Enoch was translated’. Of course it is a true book showing fallen angels had sex with women, as in the LXXE in Job 1:6 ‘the angels of God’ and in others ‘the sons of God’. So men today the sons of God are the line of Seth. Such is unscriptural. Also, Jesus quoted often from 1 Enoch, calling Himself scores of times, ‘The Son of Man” and such a Name is not found in our O.T. but in 1 Enoch. Jude quotes from 1 Enoch as does Peter on two occasions. Be blessed as you listen to the precious words of a Prophet of God, Enoch. Tertullian A.D.90-120 speaks of the author of Enoch as ‘That most ancient prophet’ and of the Book of Enoch as ‘of the divinely inspired autograph of the inspired of the immortal patriarch, preserved by Noah in the Ark, or miraculously reproduce by him through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit’. Church leaders would do well to repent of disregarding the marvels portrayed therein of God, of the Son of Man, of the saints, of heaven, of hell, of creation, such as the sun, moon, stars, etc #Christian #BibleStudy #IreneBonneyFaulkes #Truth #wordofgod #HolySpirit #Quotes
