There is nowhere in the Bible, where there is any book or any reference to a book written called: THE BOOK OF ENOCH. Even so, Christians around the world read this book. It was found in the dead sea scrolls, but so were multiple teachings that were heretical as well. It is a dangerous book because it contradicts the Bible. I can't tell you how alarmed I am. The last time I sat in Church in an "end times" bible study, the Pastor taught from this book. The people were sitting there as lambs lead to the slaughter house. They were soaking in all the false teachings as the Pastor was validating this book as true biblical "scriptures". At this moment in time, the red alarms were going off in my spirit. That alarm was the Holy Spirit warning me to RUN. I didn't realize just how fast until now. Jesus spoke of the leaven of the Pharisees. You see, a little poison in the water is undetectable, but it makes the entire water POISON. You cannot separate the poison from the water once it is in there.
Yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees
5Later, after they crossed to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6“Watch out!” Jesus warned them. “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
7At this they began to argue with each other because they hadn’t brought any bread. 8 Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, “You have so little faith! Why are you arguing with each other about having no bread? 9 Don’t you understand even yet? Don’t you remember the 5,000 I fed with five loaves, and the baskets of leftovers you picked up? 10Or the 4,000 I fed with seven loaves, and the large baskets of leftovers you picked up? 11 Why can’t you understand that I’m not talking about bread? So again I say, ‘Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.’”
12Then at last they understood that he wasn’t speaking about the yeast in bread, but about the deceptive teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
"This false teaching is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough!"
1. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS THERE WERE 4,500 FOOT GIANTS BORN FROM HUMAN WOMEN
Enoch Chapter 7:2: "And they (human woman) became pregnant, and they bare great giants, who height was three thousand ells."
According to Deuteronomy 3:11, the bed of King Og was 13.5 feet long. So, we can estimate he was between 9 and 11 feet tall. Giants in the Bible are recorded to be between 9 and 11 feet in height. Nowhere in the Bible has there been any truth of any human being 4,500 feet tall. Noah's Ark was 450 feet long, so according to the Book of Enoch, giants had to be 10 times the size of Noah's Ark.
2. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS WOMEN BECAME MYTHICAL CREATURES
Enoch Chapter 19:2: "And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens."
The Book of Enoch states the human women who married angels gave birth to giants who were transformed into half-bird and half-human creatures. This proves the Book of Enoch promotes pagan mythology. You will never read about a human transforming into a mythical creature in the Bible. Sirens are creatures from Greek mythology.
3. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS ALL SIN IN THE WORLD COMES FROM AZAZEL AND NOT FROM ADAM
Enoch Chapter 10:8- "And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin."
The Book of Enoch attributes all sin in the world to Azazel. a fallen angel. This is completely contrary to the Bible. Advocates for the Book of Enoch claim that Azazel is Satan and that Satan introduced sin into the world. However, the Book of Enoch says that Azazel is bound in chains and locked up until the day of judgment (Enoch 10:4-6). The Bible says Satan is free to roam the earth (1 Peter 2:5:8, Job 2:2). Also the Bible clearly says, "Therefore, as sin entered into the world through one man(Adam), and death through sin, and so death passed to all men, because all sinned." -Romans 5;12
4. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS THAT ANGELS BUILT NOAH'S ARK
"And now the angels are making a wooden (building), and when they have completed that task I will place My hand upon it and preserve it, and there shall come forth from it the seed of life, and a change shall set in so that the earth will not remain without inhabitant." -Enoch 67:2
Noah alone was given instructions to build the Ark, not angels.
"But I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground, according to its kind, two of every sort shall come in to you to keep them alive. 21 Also take with you every sort of food that is eaten, and store it up. It shall serve as food for you and for them.” 22 Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him." -Genesis 6
The Book of Hebrews praises the faith and obedience of Noah for preparing the Ark, but the Book of Enoch robs Noah and destroys the example of faith spoken about Noah in the Bible.
5. THE BOOK OF ENOCH TEACHES GREEK MYTHOLOGY AS GODLY KNOWLEDGE
"And first there goes forth the great luminary, named the Sun, and his circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and he is quite filled with illuminating and heating fire. The chariot on which he ascends, the wind drives, and the sun goes down from the heaven and returns through the north in order to reach the east, and is so guided that he comes to the appropriate (lit. ‘ that ‘) portal and shines in the face of the heaven."
"And after this law I saw another law dealing with the smaller luminary, which is named the Moon. And her circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and her chariot in which she rides is driven by the wind, and light is given to her in (definite) measure."
None of this is biblical. The Book of Enoch claims this is how the Sun and Moon operate in the sky. The Book of Enoch also claims this information about the Sun and Moon going across the sky in a chariot is knowledge given to Enoch from heaven. Yet, King Josiah, a righteous King, destroyed the chariot of the sun god. So, why would the angels from heaven teach Enoch these same pagan mythologies of the sun god and moon goddess?
"He removed from the entrance of the LORD’s Temple the horse statues that the former kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun. They were near the quarters of Nathan-melech the eunuch, an officer of the court. The king also burned the chariots dedicated to the sun." -2 Kings 23:11
6. THE BOOK OF ENOCH TEACHES THAT NOAH HAD LASER BEAM EYES
Enoch 103:1-2 "And after some days my son, Methuselah, took a wife for his son Lamech, and she became pregnant by him and bore him a son. 2 And his body was white as snow and red as a rose, the hair of his head as white as wool and his demdema 29 beautiful; and as for his eyes, when he opened them the whole house glowed like the sun—(rather) the
whole house glowed even more exceedingly."
The next passage describes how Lamech urged his father Methuselah to go and speak with Enoch (who had been translated to heaven) about Noah. We are forbidden to speak to the dead or anyone in heaven except Jesus.
Enoch 106:7 "So I am beseeching you now, begging you in order that
you may go to his (grand)father Enoch, our father, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling place is among the angels.”
Genesis 5: 24 says: "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him". Hebrews 11;5 says...Enoch was TAKEN AWAY. It would be impossible for Methuselah to go to the "ends of the earth" and yell for Enoch and for Enoch to come back to come back to earth to give Methuselah the answer he wanted about Noah. This is a heretical fable. Noah could not have consulted with Enoch since Enoch was translated decades before Noah was born. He was not around for people to talk to him.
Once again, the Book of Enoch is contrary to scripture and introduces false heresies. If Jude was quoting from the Book of Enoch, then he would have had to reference 2 different scriptures in the Book of Enoch because there is not one single statement that matches Jude 1:14-15.
"Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
(1 Enoch 71:13-14, emphasis added): "And the Head of Days came with Michael and Raphael and Gabriel and Phanuel, and thousands and tens of thousands of angels without number. And he came to me and greeted me with his voice and said to me, 'You (are) that Son of Man who was born for righteousness, and righteousness dwells on you, and the righteousness of the Head of Days will not forsake you.'"
This quote comes from The Hermeneia Translation. If this translation of 1 Enoch 71:14 is correct when it identifies Enoch as the Messianic figure, then this should impact how much significance we place on these writings. If the author of The Parables of Enoch intended to identify Enoch as this figure who fulfills these Messianic prophecies, then that puts The Parables of Enoch—that is, 1 Enoch 37-71—in direct conflict with the teachings of the New Testament concerning the identity of the Messianic Son of Man...Jesus.
We are in the end times and DECEPTION is spreading just as Jesus said it would. Remember the parable about the leaven of the Pharisees. Remember the poison in the water. Once it's there, it's throughout the entire teaching. Please separate yourselves from false teachers and pastors and repent before you get into deeper deception. God will send the STRONG delusion soon.
