However you may perceive the Book of Enoch, I’ve pondered it for years, and have high regard for it. Reading it upon exiting the New Age was frankly an epiphany that brought me back to Christianity… One of the factors, at least. And then I got back into the standard canon of Scriptures.
But aside from that –
It has a lot to say about the end of times, for one thing. I was reading it the other day (I have an app of it on my phone), and here was a show stopper remark from 79:8-10, as Uriel instructs Enoch.
The entire created order is in disarray, and he says,
“The thoughts of those who dwell on the earth shall transgress within them; and they shall be perverted in all their ways. They shall transgress, and think themselves gods; while evil shall be multiplied among them. And punishment shall come upon them, so that all of them shall be destroyed.”
This made an impact, upon hearing once more the arrogant braggadocio of a couple of the primaries from the WEF, boasting about becoming gods, and how now that God was dead (oh, really?), one in particular has his sites set on killing “His body.”
Anyone who speaks this way is clearly filled with, or at least overtaken by, the prince of darkness. The intention of that one has always been to usurp God. He knows he cannot. Yet he also knows that the way to hurt any loving parent is to go after his children.
We will see about that.
Scripture is likewise clear about the outcome.
Soli Deo Gloria. Amen.
