The Books of Enoch

Christians will rightfully ask: Why would I want to read the Book of Enoch?  The reason is that hidden within the text of Enoch is the knowledge of the Laws that inhibit our access into the Kingdom that Jesus taught is within us (Luke 17:20-21).   While there is very little in Enoch that is literally/historically accurate, the message within the symbolism of the text is of such a profound reality, that the code to comprehending the secret wisdom it concealed was kept by the Essenes by virtue of a sworn oath not to reveal to those who were not worthy of the Sacred Knowledge.   An Essene would sooner die, than to betray the wisdom of the Sacred Knowledge of the Laws of God. 

Among the reasons why a modern Christian would want to read the Books of Enoch is this: Perhaps because they took to heart the words of biblical scholar A. Powell Davies: “Biblical scholars”, he writes, ”were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  Then again, perhaps they became disturbed by the words of Prof. John Allegro in is book, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Origins of Christianity, where he writes: “It is a fact that the Qumran Library has profoundly affected the study of the Johannine writings and many longheld conceptions have had to be radically revised.  No longer can John be regarded as the most Hellenistic of the Evangelists; his gnosticism, and the whole framework of his thought is seen now to spring directly from a Jewish sectarianism rooted in palestinian soil, and his material recognized as founded in the earliest layers of Gospel traditions.”

The very idea that the authors of our scriptures were Gnostic -- i.e., concealing the true meaning within the body of the text in a system of code that could only be deciphered by one who was versed in the system of Gnostic secrets and thought -- should frighten the modern Christian.  One of the fundamental truths that the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has demonstrated to us today is the defectiveness of what we believe with respect to Christian foundings -- as well as our grave misconception regarding the commonly held idea that the time of the Old Covenant was before Jesus -- and that what was called the Old Covenant was replaced by the New Covenant which was inaugurated by Jesus.   In fact, one of the profound realities many of our experts today have begun to understand, is that nothing could be farther from the truth.   When Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls asked the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea), the defectiveness of our commonly held ideas was immediately brought to light.   Moreover, what some of our experts have now come to suspect is that the primary difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant has absolutely nothing to do with their choice of biblical testaments -- bur rather, is founded upon the manner of thinking of the people, and the means by which a believer is to receive the revelation of God.  

From a biblical perspective, the Old Covenant was and continues to be the written Word of God that brings the believer to the beginning of The Way -- wherein, carnal men must bring discipline into their lives -- subdue their beastly nature -- and learn about God from other men.   The New Covenant begins at the point where a man has sufficiently been molded by the Law and the Knowledge of the Prophets, to where he is able to learn directly from God.   Essentially, the two Covenants are the same -- i.e., what we call the Old Covenant being an elementary level of revelation, while what we call the New Covenant would be a middle-school level of revelation.   When we pray to the Lord for the higher knowledge in our churches today, we must begin to perceive our plight as a people who dwell under the limitations of the Old Covenant (Egyptian bondage) who are beseeching the Lord to bring about a reinstatement of the New Covenant -- which can only be brought about through a restoration of those scriptures and teachings which the Roman Church destroyed in the fourth century.  

In the process of investigating Christian origins, a number of our experts have now come to realize that our modern-day churches are very much functioning in an Old Covenant mode.   People who call themselves Christian live lawless and heathen lifestyles where they are literally possessed by the nature-gods of this world.   Men teach other men their ideas and doctrines about a God -- ideas which they do not truly understand.   The result is that the flock of believers are not only led astray by incomplete ideas and doctrines of belief that anchor the people to the thinking of this realm, but they worship the gods of this world -- i.e., sex, materialism, alcohol, drugs, secularism, Paganism, and the precepts and opinions of other men.  

What stops us from perceiving the inner meaning of the text of the Bible?  What stops us from seeing God with clarity and perception of mind?  What inhibits us, and causes us to be of a natural (carnal) mindset?  What inhibits man in his natural organic state of mind from being able to access more than ten percent of his potential of mind?  Why do men who read the same biblical text hold divers and often opposite points of view with respect to what is the meaning of the narrative?  Why does one man believe one way?  Another, and opposite way?  And why does such overwhelming conflict of thought and strife exist in the world?  The answer is found in the fact that few men comprehend the Laws of Creation -- and fewer yet are able to overcome these Law that are revealed within the text of the Book of Enoch.
