Why was the Book of Enoch banned by the Church? Does the book really describe cases of human abduction by aliens that occurred thousands of years ago? And is it true that it contains information that speaks to our extraterrestrial past and the key to humanity’s future?
The Oldest Bible in the World
In Ethiopia one of the temples guards the most valuable shrine of Christianity – the Gospel of Garima. The two richly illustrated books date back to the 6th century AD. This is perhaps the oldest and most complete Bible in the world and the Ethiopian Church is one of the first Christian Churches.
It is curious that the Bible of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church differs from the Holy Scriptures accepted in other Christian denominations. This version of the Old Testament includes an enigmatic text known as the Book of Enoch. The Ethiopian Church considers the Book of Enoch canonical, while other Churches do not.
Abducted by the “gods”
The author of the book is Enoch, Noah’s great-grandfather, the one who built the ark before the Great Flood. It is believed that Enoch was immortal, and God took him to heaven alive.
In his book Enoch writes that when he was 12 years old, all the villagers heard a noise one night. Two angels descended from heaven and one of them said to Enoch:
“Fear not man” and they ascended to heaven in a fiery chariot.
Enoch saw something he could not describe. Of course, he didn’t know what a spaceship was so he wrote about flying houses made of crystal and under it Enoch saw the planet Earth. It seems that this is one of the first stories of mankind about the abduction of people by aliens.
Proponents of the paleocontact theory believe that the Book of Enoch is one of the most convincing texts on the appearance of aliens. But it is by no means unique. Similar stories survive in many other ancient cultures. This indicates that Enoch’s words can be believed.
Many ancient texts say that people ascend to heaven and then return. For example in Ancient Greece there is a legend about Ganymede who was lifted by the eagle of Zeus. Similar legends can be found in the epics of Ancient China, Ancient Egypt, the Sumerians and other peoples. All of these stories are similar, but they lack the details that the Book of Enoch abounds with.
His texts not only prove the existence of aliens, but also show the other side of God. That’s why the Church decided to exclude the Book of Enoch from the Bible, it turned out to be too extreme for Christians at the time.
According to the Book of Enoch, not all angels were God’s messengers. The best evidence for this is the description of creatures called Guardians.
The book of Daniel talks about a certain group of angels, whom God commanded to instruct mankind. They cared for our world and guided the development of our civilization. Daniel only briefly mentions these creatures, while in Enoch the Guardians or Guardians of Heaven become one of the main topics. These “angels” are not really spiritual, but real beings. The Bible talks about this clearly and distinctly. They are not from our world, which means they can be safely called extraterrestrials.
In the Book of Enoch, only 200 Guardians descended to Earth. Their leaders were Shamkhazai and Azazel, who later became known as Lucifer. The Guardians had a very shiny appearance, and one of their names is the Shining Ones. Enoch, in describing them, said that the Guardians were hard to look at, as they glowed so brightly.
The version that the Guardians were foreign guests is confirmed by the testimony of the prophet Elijah. He also ascended to heaven in a chariot of fire. Elijah was a great diviner, far superior to other prophets. He had a wonderful cloak that could heal the sick and raise the dead.
Chariots of fire are mentioned more than once in the Bible. Apparently, we are talking about some kind of vehicle, a spaceship. According to Judeo-Christian beliefs, the soul ascends to heaven after death, but in the Bible there are many examples of the ascension of a living person. In addition to Enoch and Elijah,[ the same thing happened to Jesus.
What does the Book of Giants tell us about?
In the middle of the last century, Israeli shepherds found clay vessels in one of the caves, where ancient manuscripts were kept. It turned out that they were handwritten copies of the Bible, which were at least 1000 years older than others known at the time. Besides them, there were other manuscripts, among them the Book of Giants.
This book talked about the Nephilim (giants), the children of the Guardians, their life and way of living. The Nephilim are the embodiment of evil. They committed terrible crimes, including eating human flesh. Finally, God decided that the Earth needed to be cleansed of the Nephilim, and named Noah, the great-grandson of Enoch, as the chosen one to restart human history.
In the Bible Noah was chosen by God for his piety. But the Book of Giants has a different version of Noah’s story. He became the chosen one even before he was born, and his father was not a man. The newborn baby’s skin glowed and its hair was as white as sheep’s wool. Outwardly, he was a copy of the Guardians and was artificially conceived.
The Guardians of Heaven believed that Noah would father a new generation of people. It turns out that Noah was a genetically modified person, created by aliens for a new life on Earth.
The official version of the Bible says that God was saddened by the atrocities and evils of the human race and decided to end them by sending the Great Flood to Earth. The Book of Enoch tells the same story, but with significant differences. The flood would destroy the fallen angels and the Nephilim.
According to Enoch, God protects people. He is nothing like God from the Book of Genesis, full of rage and rage. Another difference lies in the fact that Noah received the instructions for building the ark not from God but from the archangel Uriel. He warns Noah of the impending cataclysm and reveals the future of humanity.
As it turns out, Enoch isn’t talking about the punishment of the human race, but the aliens who drive our history.
return of the gods
In the Book of Enoch, chapter 91, it is said that after Enoch’s journey and return to Earth, he is preparing for the second ascension to heaven. But before that, he gathers his entire family together and shares an unusual prophecy. Enoch’s son Methuselah asked his father if he would see him again.
“The Celestial Guardians have said that I will return to this planet. But thousands of years will pass, so we won’t see each other again.”
The concept of a Divine Chosen One leaving Earth and returning to it is found in almost all religions. The Jews are waiting for the return of the prophet Elijah, who will come before the Messiah and bring an era of peace and justice. It will be the beginning of the End Times.
Christians await the return of Jesus considered the Messiah. For Islam this is the Divine Messenger Al Mahdi or Mohammed himself.
In a sense, this return will bring about a new age, a new way of the world, and a new relationship between humanity and God. These prophecies foretell that a certain Messiah will appear in the clouds accompanied by the army of heaven.
Is it possible that all these ancient texts are about a certain spaceship and an alien invasion of Earth? And Enoch’s teachings were supposed to prepare humanity for the day when a new reality will open up to us.
