Apocrypha: The "Other" Scriptures

******************* *******************


Are there more scriptures, which perhaps the catholics want you to NOT know about?

It would seem so!! Of course, there are many more "other", or "hidden", scriptures and other books which we rarely hear about. For example, there is the Apocrypha, most of that are works which people refused as scripture. Also, the Muslims, Jews, and Hindus have their sets of scriptures. And considering the way in which modern humans are tearing up the earth for construction and archaeology, it should not be surprising if more and better books are found. For example, most of us have heard of the Nag Hammadi Library and the Dead Sea Scrolls which have popped up in recent years. These were supposedly the "real scriptures" which were hidden away by people who knew that the "industrial" religion had gone pagan (christianity), and they wanted to preserve their honest writings from destruction. And maybe, someday, someone will be able to get into the Roman Catholic archives and liberate much of what they hide from the world (in order to deceive us and keep us ignorant). The Gospel of the Essenes is an example of this.

The catholic church claims to be the only church directly descended from the Savior. They do this by claiming "saint" Peter and "saint" Paul were the first christians. But of course, they were NOT christians, they were Messianics of The Way. The first christians were Constantine and those around and before him who merged the true belief into the previously existing paganism. It is commonly accepted that they changed the scriptures as much as they could get away with to match their own beliefs, and then went into Israel and wiped out the people and the records of the Essenes, and especially the Nazarenes. 

Don't forget that the New Testament we currently have was altered quite a bit in the first centuries after the death of the Messiyah, for example by Constantine and his folks, so its worth is highly questionable!! They took Yahweh and Yahushua out of the scriptures, put paganism in, and thereby created christianity. What we (even today) call christianity is nothing more than a re-paved version of Nimrod's paganism. Originally Constantine and the earlier emperors persecuted the followers of Yahushua. Then they changed the scriptures to suit themselves, and Constantine "became a believer". Ya, right! He was a pagan to start with, and he was a pagan to the end. He did not convert TO a new religion, he converted the religion itself. Then he made a law requiring everyone to believe in his new religion, which is catholicism (christianity). Then his army killed all the true believers (Messianics of The Way) and destroyed all their records. This was the beginning of christianity - not Yahushua, Peter, and the apostles.

Did you ever hear the saying "Jesus of Nazareth"? How about "Jesus the Nazarene"? The second is the most correct. Many modern archaeologists have said the city of Nazareth did not exist in the time of the Messiyah. So where did the sayings come from? They call Him "Jesus of Nazareth" as if Nazareth was just a city to be from. But it seems impossible to separate the Nazarenes from Nazareth, and therefore Yahushua from the Nazarite way, as Nazareth is nothing more than the village of the Nazarenes. The Nazarenes were one of the sects of the Essenes, who were the most pious of the Jews at that time. All the Essene groups shunned "civilization" and lived alone in tiny communities in the desert. One of those communities became known as Nazareth, the place where the Nazarenes lived. (Numbers 6:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall make a special vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to separate himself unto Yahweh,)

Most likely "of Nazareth" is a very subtle deception, a lie of satan. That makes it mean simply that He is just another person from just another everyday town. Whereas "the Nazarene" makes it perfectly clear that it refers to a way of life, a type of belief. Nazareth was not a name plucked from the air - that name means "town of the Nazarenes". Yahshua was a Nazarene! Yahchanan the Baptist was a Nazarene! They were special people from a group of special people.

Did you ever hear about the old days, when the wise man lived in a cave near the top of a mountain? This type of man was fed up with society and the ways of the rest of the humans. So he lived alone in a cave. But when the "normal" humans had a problem they would seek him out. They would climb the mountain and find the wise man who knew the answers to all the questions and problems.

Two thousand years ago there were recognized to be three types of Jews: the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and the Essenes. The catholic bible mentions the first two, but not the third. Is that strange? The first two were the normal society of Judah. The Essenes were the ones who couldn't stand them, so they lived in tiny communities in the desert. For example, it was some of the Essenes who hid the "Dead Sea scrolls" in the caves. They were the ones who were most strict about reading and obeying the true, original, scriptures. They were most strict about rejecting the "teachings of men".

The Nazarenes were a group of Essenes. They were not as strict in some ways, for example they believed it was okay to marry and raise a family. Most of the Essene groups eschewed women, they lived celibate lives because they thought it brought them closer to Yahweh. So the Nazarenes had their own little village out there in the desert, away from most other people. That community became known as Nazareth. Nazareth means 'followers of the Nazarene way' (similarly, in the Old Testament Ashtoreth means 'followers of the goddess Ashtor/easter'). Apparently many people wanted to follow in His footsteps, and so they moved out there and joined the rest of the group, and it became a town, then a city.

Yahushua the Messiyah was a Nazarene.

After Yahushua died the Nazarenes accepted Him as the Messiyah, and also they fully believed in and obeyed the Law of Moses and the prophets. Most Jews only believed in the Old Testament, and christians only believed in the New Testament. The Nazarenes believed in both. Most of the apostles and direct followers of Yahushua the Messiyah were Nazarenes and Essenes. These were the people who knew Him best. They did what He commanded them, and what He showed them. He taught them to continue believing in the Torah! The Nazarenes did not accept the catholics or the mainstream Jews. And no one accepted them. They were persecuted by Jew and christians alike. That is because they followed the teachings of the Messiyah, and everyone else followed whatever they wanted to follow. Apparently most Jews hated the Essenes/Nazarenes because they made the rest of Jewry look bad (which they were).

Don't forget Amos 2:11 And I raised up of you sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazirites. Is it not even thus, O you children of Israel? says Yahweh. 12 But you gave the Nazirites wine to drink, and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not.

The Apocrypha section used to be included with the rest of the scriptures. Nowadays it is usually not even mentioned, certainly rarely included. I have included some apocrypha here on my website.

   The Gospel of Thomas

"The Hidden Sayings which the Living Yahushua Spoke and Judas Thomas the Twin Recorded" was perhaps the first record ever written about the Messiyah, and some scholars consider it to be the most reliable. Apparently these sayings were written down by the same Thomas who was an apostle of the Messiyah (sometimes referred to as 'doubting Thomas'). Much of this book contains sayings of Yahushua that were later contained in the four New Testament catholic gospels. Here I have the version originally translated by Thomas O. Lambdin, but there are other translators with different perspectives.

Those gospels we currently have in the catholic bible reportedly changed or distorted the teachings of the true Messiyah in ways that the pagans were willing to accept.


====  ====  ====  ====  ====  ====  ====



  The Nazarenes


The Essenes and the Nazarenes believed that Yahushua was born a human. He had a human father who went in to his human virgin wife, and she conceived. He was not "begotten of Yahweh" until he reached adulthood and proved himself worthy. He was not Yahweh in person, as the apostate christians would have you believe. The early followers of the Messiyah were NOT christians! They were Nazarenes/Essenes or Messianics. They rejected christianity. At Yahushua's baptism, the Messiyah [the Word of Yahweh] decended from heaven and entered the human Yahushua, and he became Yahushua Messiyah from then on.

The Nazarenes had their own Gospel, apparently, written in Hebrew. They also had the original Gospel of Matthew (what you see in the catholic bible was written later, and omits or even changes many facts). So if you truly want to be a follower of the Messiyah, then it would seem the best thing to do would be to study the Nazarenes, and perhaps attempt to become a Nazarene. As I have expounded elsewhere on this website, christianity would be the wrong way to go. They definitely DO NOT follow the teachings of the Messiyah. The christians don't even follow the commandments of their own "revised" scriptures! The christians KNEW they were apostate pagans, and that is why they went to such great lengths to get rid of all the Nazarenes, Essenes, and their records. There is also speculation that Romans burned the Ancient Royal Library of Alexandria, Egypt, at the same time, for the same reason.

So here I present the Gospel of the Nazarenes as best as I can. Unfortunately this was "converted into English" by a christian, Reverend Gideon Jasper Richard Ouseley, who inflicted his own biases onto it to some extent. However, it appears he did an honest job of it. I made some changes, for example I turned his "jesus" into "Yahushua", and "the lord" into "Yahweh", etc etc. And I updated that olde-style English to a more readable style.

This book hints at the occult! There are hints of symbolism, numerology, and mysticism. It tells of different "annointed ones" through the ages - perhaps Krishna is one. Strange as it may seem, this might be the best and most accurate book we have regarding the Messiyah, and His teachings. Or it could have been inspired by the devil. Certainly there are some very important differences between this and the catholic bible. I personally do not know what is true.

Some claim he found the old document itself hidden in Tibet, and some claim he received it in a series of dreams. If it really does exist in Tibet, it would be nice if they presented it for analysis. We do not have the document to look at and test, all we have is the word of the Reverend, and a few scraps here and there which seem to validate the Reverend. So we will be debating from now on about whether it is real or not. However, it is very similar to the Essene's Humane Gospel of Messiyah, which was found later, the Essene Teachings of the Elect, the Book of Miriam, and the Book of Thomas. All these works provide a consistent gospel which is significantly different from the catholic bible in many ways. But, as you know, my opinion is that the first christians badly mangled the original scriptures in order to create "the holy bible".

Do not forget Yeremyah 23:32!! In many ways this does, and in many ways this does not sound like inspired scripture.

The difference between these versions and the catholic is that we know there was a Gospel of the Nazarenes, we know the Nazarenes existed. Also, we know that the gospels in the current bible were written based on earlier works, of which the Gospel of the Nazarenes, the Humane Gospel of the Essenes, and the Gospel of Thomas must have been included. Of course, none of that indicates that this work IS that original Gospel of the Nazarenes, or that the current works of the Essenes are correct. However, both of these seem to be more realistic than what we read in the catholic bible.

A main tenet of these works is to respect Yahweh's creation, all of it. Which means: do not eat meat. And doesn't that sound like what Yahweh would want from you? Certainly, it IS what we are told in Genesis 1:29/30 and Genesis 2:16. It is also what we read in Jasher 83:26 At that time the children of Israel continued their journey from the wilderness of Sinai, and they took a journey of three days, and the cloud rested upon the wilderness of Paran; there the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel, for they had provoked Yahweh in asking him for meat, that they might eat. 27 And Yahweh hearkened to their voice, and gave them meat which they ate for one month. 28 But after this the anger of Yahweh was kindled against them, and he smote them with a great slaughter, and they were buried there in that place. 29 And the children of Israel called that place Kebroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who lusted flesh.

   The Essenes


The Humane Gospel of the Essenes provides a satisfactory way to explain the apparent discrepancy of whether Yahushua Messiyah was a human, or if He pre-existed. The answer is both! Yahushua was a human (a very special one, to be certain), and when He was an adult who had proven himself worthy, only then did the pre-existing Messiyah enter into him. Only then did He become the "only begotten Son of Yahweh". The "Messiyah" is the "second Father", the "Son of Yahweh", the "Word of Yahweh". Before His baptism, Yahushua was only called by His human name, becuase He was only a human. But immediately after His baptism He was henceforth called "Yahushua Messiyah". It also answers the apparent contradiction in the catholic scriptures of Yahchanan (aka John the Baptist) and Yahushua (wrongly called Jesus Christ); namely, that when Yahushua arrived to be baptized Yahchanan already knew him personally, and knew Him as a Teacher of the Nazarenes. Yet, after He was baptized the Spirit of Yahweh decended onto Him, and only then did Yahchanan realize that Yahushua was the promised Messiyah. Consider these paragraphs from the book:

     And it came to pass, that the time was right for Yahushua to come unto Yahchanan, and it was in the midst of the summer, in the tenth month that Yahushua from Galilee came unto Yahchanan, to be baptized of him. But Yahchanan hesitated, saying, "I surely have need to be baptized of you, why do you come to me?"
    And Yahushua answering said unto him: "Permit it to be so now, Yahchanan, for thus it becomes both to fulfil all that is righteous before the set-apart Father-Mother in Heaven."
    Then Yahchanan listened and did as Yahushua had spoken. And Yahushua, when he was baptized, went directly out of the water, and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and from the cloud twelve Rays of Light appeared, and there in the form of a Dove, the set-apart Messiyah descended with brilliant lighting upon him. And lo, a voice from heaven was heard, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; this day I have begotten you. Listen to Him and obey His set-apart Law."
    And Yahchanan bore testimony of him, saying, "This is he of whom I spoke. He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me. And of his fulness have we all received, even grace for grace, for grace and truth are the set-apart Law whereby Yahushua Messiyah is the fulness thereof."... And Yahchanan continued, saying: "I baptize with water; but there stands One among you, whom you know not, He shall baptize with water and with fire, for in him are the life and the judgment of the set-apart Law.... And all these things took place in Bethabara, beyond Jordan, where Yahchanan was baptizing. And it was at this time that Yahushua did begin his ministry in Israel, he being after the flesh, and indeed the set-apart son of Miriam and Yosef; but also after the Spirit of the set-apart Messiyah, the Son of Yahweh, the Father and Mother Eternal.
     And Yahchanan continued to bear testimony, saying: "Yea, I saw the set-apart Messiyah descending from heaven like a Dove, and it rested upon Him ... And I saw and bear public record that this was and is the Son of Yahweh, even Yahushua Messiyah, the set-apart One of Yahweh, that restores all things to their root.
     For it was this Yahchanan who would one day baptize Yahushua and witness to the Messiyah in the form of a dove descending upon Him, thus proclaiming Yahushua's identity to the world.

-----

Does that make sense to you? Yahchanan knew the man Yahushua, as they were cousins, and when he baptised Him, Yahchanan saw the Spirit of Yahweh enter into Yahushua, and only then did Yahushua become the Messiyah. Only then was He begotten of Yahweh. Only then did Yahchanan realize that He was now the Messiyah.

The Gospel of the Nazarenes agrees: 8:8. These things were done in Bethabara, beyond Jordan, where Yahchanan was baptizing. And Yahushua began at this time to be thirty years of age, being after the flesh indeed the Son of Yosef and Miriam; but after the Spirit, the Messiyah, the Son of El, the Father and Mother Eternal, as was declared by the Spirit of holiness with power.

What is real? I wish I knew! Give them a read, and see what you think.

  The Books of Adam and Eve, Jasher, and the Little Genesis

These books shed more light on the world of humans before the days of Enoch, and fill in some of the gaps in the Book of Genesis. They are very interesting reading. Let me give you a taste, to trick you into reading the rest:

The First Book of Adam and Eve 1:1 On the third day, Yahweh planted the garden in the east of the earth, on the border of the world eastward, beyond which, towards the sun-rising, one finds nothing but water, that encompasses the whole world, and reaches to the borders of heaven.
2:5 Therefore Yahweh had pity on them; and when He saw them fallen before the gate of the garden, He sent His Word to our father, Adam and Eve, and raised them from their fallen state.
3:1 Yahweh said to Adam, "I have ordained on this earth days and years, and you and your descendants shall live and walk in them, until the days and years are fulfilled; when I shall send the Word which created you, and against which you have transgressed, the Word who made you come out of the garden, and who raised you when you were fallen. 2 Yes, the Word who will again save you when the five and a half days are fulfilled." 6 Then Yahweh in his mercy for Adam who was made after His own image and likeness, explained to him, that these were 5,000 and 500 years; and how One would then come and save him and his descendants. 15 And the Word of the Master came to Adam and Eve, and raised them up. 16 And the Master said to Adam, "I told you that at the end of the five and a half days, I will send my Word and save you. 18 And when Adam heard this Word from Yahweh, he was comforted with that which Yahweh had told him. For He had told him how He would save him.
4:8 And Adam said to Eve, "Look at your eyes, and at mine, which before beheld malaks praising in heaven; and they too, without ceasing. 9 But now we do not see as we did; our eyes have become of flesh; they cannot see like they used to see before." 10 Adam said again to Eve, "What is our body today, compared to what it was in former days, when we lived in the garden?"
6:3 He, therefore, sent His Word to them; that they should stand and be raised immediately. 5 Of your own free will have you transgressed through your desire for divinity, greatness, and an exalted state, such as I have; so that I deprived you of the bright nature in which you then were, 7 But the wicked Satan did not keep his faith and had no good intent towards Me, that although I had created him, he considered Me to be useless, and sought the el-head for himself; for this I hurled him down from heaven so that he could not remain in his first estate
8:1 Then Adam cried and said, "O Yahweh, when we lived in the garden, and our hearts were lifted up, we saw the malaks who sang praises in heaven, but now we can't see like we used to; no, when we entered the cave, all creation became hidden from us." 2 Then Yahweh the Master said to Adam, "When you were under subjection to Me, you had a bright nature within you, and for that reason you could see things far away. But after your transgression your bright nature was withdrawn from you; and it was not left to you to see things far away, but only near at hand; after the ability of the flesh; for it is brutish."
10:3 Then Yahweh sent His Word to Adam and Eve, who raised them from their death. 4 And Adam said, after he was raised, "O Yahweh, while we were in the garden we did not require or care for this water; but since we came to this land we cannot do without it." 5 Then Yahweh said to Adam, "While you were under My command and were a bright nature, you knew not this water. 6 But now that you have transgressed My commandment, you can not do without water, wherein to wash your body and make it grow; for it is now like that of beasts, and is in want of water."
13:15 But you did not keep My commandment one day; until I had finished the creation and blessed everything in it. 16 Then, concerning the tree, I commanded you to not eat of it. Yet I knew that Satan, who deceived himself, would also deceive you.
14:3 Again said Yahweh to Adam, "All this misery that you have been made to take on yourself because of your transgression will not free you from the hand of Satan, and will not save you. 4 But I will. When I shall come down from heaven, and shall become flesh of your descendants, and take on Myself the infirmity from which you suffer, then the darkness that covered you in this cave shall cover Me in the grave, when I am in the flesh of your descendants. 5 And I, who am without years, shall be subject to the reckoning of years, of times, of months, and of days, and I shall be reckoned as one of the sons of men, in order to save you."
15:1 Then Adam and Eve cried and sorrowed by reason of Yahweh's word to them, that they should not return to the garden until the fulfillment of the days decreed on them; but mostly because Yahweh had told them that He should suffer for their salvation.
16:10 But while he was thinking like this in his heart, the Word of Yahweh came to him and said: -- 11 "O Adam, get up on your feet. This sun is not Yahweh; but it has been created to give light by day, of which I spoke to you in the cave saying, 'that the dawn would come, and there would be light by day.' 12 But I am Yahweh who comforted you in the night." 13 And Yahweh ceased to commune with Adam.
17:2 But as they went near it, before the western gate, from which Satan came when he deceived Adam and Eve, they found the serpent that became Satan coming at the gate, and sorrowfully licking the dust, and wiggling on its breast on the ground, by reason of the curse that fell on it from Yahweh. 3 And whereas before the serpent was the most exalted of all beasts, now it was changed and become slippery, and the meanest of them all, and it crept on its breast and went on its belly. 4 And whereas it was the fairest of all beasts, it had been changed, and was become the ugliest of them all. Instead of feeding on the best food, now it turned to eat the dust. Instead of living, as before, in the best places, now it lived in the dust. 5 And, whereas it had been the most beautiful of all beasts, all of which stood dumb at its beauty, it was now abhorred of them. 6 And, again, whereas it lived in one beautiful home, to which all other animals came from elsewhere; and where it drank, they drank also of the same; now, after it had become venomous, by reason of Yahweh's curse,
24:2 And Yahweh sent from His presence a bright fire, that consumed their offering. 3 He smelled the sweet savor of their offering, and showed them mercy. 4 Then came the Word of Yahweh to Adam, and said to him, "O Adam, as you have shed your blood, so will I shed My own blood when I become flesh of your descendants; and as you died, O Adam, so also will I die. And as you built an altar, so also will I make for you an altar of the earth; and as you offered your blood on it, so also will I offer My blood on an altar on the earth. 5 And as you sued for forgiveness through that blood, so also will I make My blood forgiveness of sins, and erase transgressions in it.
26:5 At first, malaks trembled at the presence of Adam and were afraid of him. But now Adam trembled before the malaks and was afraid of them.
38:1 After these things the Word of Yahweh came to Adam, and said to him: -- 2 "O Adam, as to the fruit on the Tree of Life that you have asked for, I will not give it to you now, but only when the 5,500 years are fulfilled. At that time I will give you fruit from the Tree of Life, and you will eat, and live forever, you, and Eve, and your righteous descendants. 6 And Yahweh withdrew His Word from Adam.
42:1 Then came the Word of Yahweh to Adam, and said to him:-- 5 And if you said, 'Give me of the Water of Life that I may drink and live' -- it cannot be this day, but on the day that I shall descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and bruise in pieces the kingdoms of iron. 6 Then I will in mercy save your soul and the souls of the righteous, to give them rest in My garden. And that shall be when the end of the world is come. 7 And, again, in regards to the Water of Life you seek, it will not be granted you this day; but on the day that I shall shed My blood on your head in the land of Golgotha. 8 For My blood shall be the Water of Life to you at that time, and not to just you alone, but to all your descendants who shall believe in Me; that it be to them for rest forever." 9 The Master said again to Adam, "O Adam, when you were in the garden these trials did not come to you. 10 But since you transgressed My commandment, all these sufferings have come over you. 11 Now, also, does your flesh require food and drink; drink then of that water that flows by you on the face of the earth. 12 Then Yahweh withdrew His Word from Adam.
45:10 Then you will see the burning of his fire, that will be burning around you and likewise your descendants. You will not be delivered from it until My coming; just like you cannot go into your cave right now because of the great fire around it; not until My Word comes and makes a way for you on the day My covenant is fulfilled. 11 There is no way for you at present to come from this life to rest, not until My Word comes, who is My Word. Then He will make a way for you, and you shall have rest." Then Yahweh called with His Word to the fire that burned around the cave, that it split itself in half, until Adam had gone through it. Then the fire parted itself by Yahweh's order, and a way was made for Adam. 12 And Yahweh withdrew His Word from Adam.
49:8 And this sign, O Adam, will happen to Me at My coming on earth: Satan will raise the people of the Jews to put Me to death; and they will lay Me in a rock, and seal a large stone over Me, and I shall remain within that rock three days and three nights. 9 But on the third day I shall rise again, and it shall be salvation to you, O Adam, and to your descendants, to believe in Me. But, O Adam, I will not bring you from under this rock until three days and three nights have passed." 10 And Yahweh withdrew His Word from Adam. 11 But Adam and Eve lived under the rock three days and three nights, as Yahweh had told them.
51:4 But as he was about to take them, the Word of Yahweh came from heaven, and bound him by the side of those skins until Adam and Eve came near him. But as they got closer to him [satan] they were afraid of him, and of his hideous look. 5 Then came the Word of Yahweh to Adam and Eve, and said to them, "This is he who was hidden in the serpent, and who deceived you, and stripped you of the garment of light and glory in which you were. 6 This is he who promised you majesty and divinity. Where, then, is the beauty that was on him? Where is his divinity? Where is his light? Where is the glory that rested on him? 7 Now his figure is hideous; he is become abominable among malaks; and he has come to be called Satan. 8 O Adam, he wished to take from you this earthly garment of sheep-skins, and to destroy it, and not let you be covered with it. 9 What, then, is his beauty that you should have followed him? And what have you gained by obeying him? See his evil works and then look at Me; at Me, your Creator, and at the good deeds I do you. 10 See, I bound him until you came and saw him and beheld his weakness, that no power is left with him." 11 And Yahweh released him from his bonds.
53:7 Therefore I will bring over them the waters of a flood, and overwhelm them all. But I will deliver what is left of the righteous among them; and I will bring them to a distant land, and the land in which you live now shall remain desolate and without one inhabitant in it.
55:2 Then Adam, when he heard the Word of Yahweh, and the fluttering of the malaks whom he did not see, but only heard the sound of them with his ears, he and Eve cried, and said to the malaks: -- 3 "O Spirits, who wait on Yahweh, look at me, and at my being unable to see you! For when I was in my former bright nature, then I could see you. I sang praises as you do; and my heart was far above you. 4 But now that I have transgressed, that bright nature is gone from me, and I am come to this miserable state. And now I have come to this, that I cannot see you, and you do not serve me like you used to do. For I have become animal flesh. 5 Yet now, O malaks of Yahweh, ask Yahweh with me, to restore me to that wherein I was formerly; to rescue me from this misery, and to remove from me the sentence of death He passed on me, for having trespassed against Him."
56:1 Then came the Word of Yahweh to Adam, and said to him: -- 2 "O Adam, look at that garden of joy and at this earth of toil, and behold the garden is full of malaks, but look at yourself alone on this earth with Satan whom you obeyed. 3 Yet, if you had submitted, and been obedient to Me, and had kept My Word, you would be with My malaks in My garden. 4 But when you transgressed and obeyed Satan, you became his guests among his malaks, who are full of wickedness; and you came to this earth, that brings forth to you thorns and thistles. 5 O Adam, ask him who deceived you to give you the divine nature he promised you, or to make you a garden as I had made for you; or to fill you with that same bright nature with which I had filled you. 6 Ask him to make you a body like the one I made you, or to give you a day of rest as I gave you; or to create within you a reasonable soul, as I created for you; or to take you from here to some other earth than this one which I gave you. But, O Adam, he will not fulfil even one of the things he told you. 7 Acknowledge, then, My favor towards you, and My mercy on you, My creature; that I have not avenged you for your transgression against Me, but in My pity for you I have promised you that at the end of the great five and a half days I will come and save you."
65:6 Then Yahweh looked at them, and then fitted them for eating food at once; as to this day; so that they should not perish. 7 Then Adam and Eve came back into the cave sorrowful and crying because of the alteration of their bodies. And they both knew from that hour that they were altered beings, that all hope of returning to the garden was now lost; and that they could not enter it. 8 For that now their bodies had strange functions; and all flesh, which requires food and drink for its existence, cannot be in the garden.
68:12 Then Yahweh said to Adam and Eve, "Since you have made this offering and have offered it to Me, I shall make it My flesh when I come down on earth to save you; and I shall cause it to be offered continually on an altar, for forgiveness and for mercy, for those who partake of it duly." 13 And Yahweh sent a bright fire over the offering of Adam and Eve, and filled it with brightness, grace, and light; and Yahweh's Spirit came down on that offering. 16 And Yahweh said to Adam, "This shall be to you a custom, to do so, when affliction and sorrow come over you. But your deliverance and your entrance into the garden shall not be until the days are fulfilled as agreed between you and Me; were it not so, I would, of My mercy and pity for you, bring you back to My garden and to My favor for the sake of the offering you have just made to My Name."
68:22 After this, came the Word of Yahweh to Adam, and said, "O Adam, you have determined beforehand the days in which sufferings shall come over Me, when I am made flesh; for they are the fourth Wednesday, and the preparation day Friday. 23 But as to the first day, I created in it all things, and I raised the heavens. And, again, through My rising again on this day I will create joy, and raise on high those who believe in Me; 24 Then Yahweh withdrew His Word from Adam.
69:3 Then Satan hastened with the sharp iron stone he had with him, and with it pierced Adam on the right side, from which flowed blood and water, then Adam fell on the altar like a corpse. And Satan fled. 5 But Yahweh looked at the death of Adam. He then sent His Word, and raised him up and said to him, "Fulfil your offering, for indeed, Adam, it is worth much, and there is no shortcoming in it." 6 Yahweh said further to Adam, "Thus will it also happen to Me, on the earth, when I shall be pierced and blood and water shall flow from My side and run over My body, which is the true offering; and which shall be offered on the altar as a perfect offering."
The Second Book of Adam and Eve 8:10 "O my son, hereafter shall a flood come and overwhelm all creatures, and leave out only eight souls. 11 "But, O my son, let those whom it will leave out from among your children at that time, take my body with them out of this cave; and when they have taken it with them, let the oldest among them command his children to lay my body in a ship until the flood has been assuaged, and they come out of the ship. 12 Then they shall take my body and lay it in the middle of the earth, shortly after they have been saved from the waters of the flood. 13 "For the place where my body shall be laid is the middle of the earth; Yahweh shall come from there and shall save all our kindred. 17 He then turned to his son Seth, and to Eve his wife, and said to them, "Preserve this gold, this incense, and this myrrh, that Yahweh has given us for a sign; for in days that are coming a flood will overwhelm the whole creation. But those who shall go into the ark shall take with them the gold, the incense, and the myrrh, together with my body; and will lay the gold, the incense, and the myrrh with my body in the midst of the earth. 18 "Then, after a long time, the city in which the gold, the incense, and the myrrh are found with my body shall be plundered. But when it is spoiled, the gold, the incense, and the myrrh shall be taken care of with the spoil that is kept; and nothing of them shall perish, until the Word of Yahweh made man shall come; when kings shall take them, and shall offer to Him, gold in token of His being King; incense in token of His being Yahweh of heaven and earth; and myrrh, in token of His passion. 19 "Gold also, as a token of His overcoming Satan, and all our foes; incense as a token that He will rise from the dead, and be exalted above things in heaven and things in the earth; and myrrh, in token that He will drink bitter gall; and feel the pains of hell from Satan.
10:3 And when they had ended their offering, the Word of Yahweh came to Seth, the eldest among them, saying unto him, "O Seth, Seth, Seth, three times. As I was with your father, so also I shall be with you, until the fulfilment of the promise I made him - your father, saying, I will send My Word and save you and your seed.
12:6 And Yahweh accepted his offering, and sent His blessing upon him and upon his children. And then Yahweh made a promise to Seth, saying, "At the end of the great five days and a half, concerning which I have made a promise to you and to your father, I will send My Word and save you and your seed."
19:1 Then Yahweh revealed to him again the promise He had made to Adam; He explained to him the 5,500 years, and revealed unto him the mystery of His coming upon the earth.

  The Book of Enoch

In Genesis we are told:

Genesis 5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
22 And Enoch walked with Yahweh after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
24 And Enoch walked with Yahweh: and he was not; for Yahweh took him.

And then, right near the end of the scriptures, we are told:

Jude 1:14 And to these also Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, Behold, Yahweh came with ten thousands of his holy ones,
15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the unrighteous of all their works of unrighteousness which they have unrighteously wrought, and of all the hard things which unrighteously sinners have spoken against Him. (Enoch 1:9)

Did you realize that there is a Book of Enoch? That is what Jude was quoting from, as if they were the actual words of Enoch himself. Jude apparently considered it scripture. The Book of Enoch used to be considered scripture in Israel, inspired by YAHWEH. Enoch seems to be where the Jews got their calendar from. The early apostles apparently considered it scripture. The Ethiopian Church still considers it scriptural (don't forget that many of them are Israelites descended from king Solomon, and, Yahweh stated that He loved the Ethiopians). The Essene people of the Dead Sea Scrolls considered it to be scripture. 2Peter 2:4 and Jude 1:6 make the same claim which Enoch does, regarding the bad malaks.

Enoch did not die, he was translated directly to heaven - therefore we know he was VERY special. There are good reasons to consider that his book might be scriptural, and then examine it for its merits. There are many questions left over after reading the scriptures we have. Many of those questions are answered by Enoch. So I can conjecture that the later writers did not see the need to fill in the holes, thinking we had already read Enoch as scripture.

Enoch 5:4 But you - you have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of Yahweh,

And guess what? Enoch has a lot of merits. The Book of Enoch gives evidence that Yahweh's commandments had already been given to people before Moshe and Noah. Enoch provides a complete record of the world from creation till the end of the last days. Enoch describes the fall of the malaks when they brought great sins into the world. He predicts Noah's Flood. Enoch predicts the oppression of Israel by Egypt. He describes Moses, the Israelites leaving Egypt, the parting of the sea and the drowning of the Egyptians in it. He predicts the Messiyah. He describes the last days. The first man, Adam, was still alive part of Enoch's life. So one can reason that Enoch actually talked with Adam - who had met Yahweh face-to-face, and knew first-hand many secrets. And we can presume that he was also a student of Seth, who was definitely a set-apart person of Yahweh.

So why is it not considered scripture anymore? Well, supposedly the Jews considered it scriptural, and it was part of their basis for believing in a coming Messiyah who would save them from the rest of the world. But then later, maybe they were not willing to read it because they had just murdered that Messiyah. And the book of Enoch is FULL of passages suggesting to call on the Name of Yahweh, maybe that's why it was removed from scripture by Jew and christian alike? It is a well-known fact that they have rejected the true names of Yahweh and Yahushua.

Enoch 46:6 because they do not extol the Name of Yahweh of Spirits.
7 and their faith is in the gods which they have made with their hands, and they deny the Name of Yahweh of Spirits,
8 and the faithful who hang upon the Name of Yahweh of Spirits.

Chapters 85 to 90 seem to contain a chronological record of the world. Chapter 85 talks about Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel. The stars in Chapter 86 which fall from heaven are the bad malaks (watchers) who came to earth in the first section of Enoch's book. The elephants, camels, and asses are the giants which the human women bore to those gods. In 88 we see the judgement upon them. In 89:1 the white bull is Noah, and in verse 2 his three sons are mentioned when they go into the ark. Verses 3 to 10 describe Noah's Flood (that Flood is also described in Enoch 54:7, and 106:15-16).

Verse 89:14 is Yoseph, son of Jacob, who goes to Egypt. Verse 15 says Jacob's sons go to live in Egypt, and the Israelites are persecuted. In verse 16 we see that Moshe was born. In verse 18 Moshe and Aaron go to Pharaoh. Verse 20 are the plagues on Egypt. The parting of the sea is verses 24 through 27. In 28 the Israelites go into the wilderness. Verse 33 is when Moshe comes down from the mountain with the Ten Commandments and finds the golden calf which Aaron had made.

Enoch 89:38 and 39 describe the crossing of the Jordan River, and the entrance into the promised land. It actually says that Moshe did not go into the promised land. The two rams in verse 47 seem to be king Saul and king David. In 50 we hear of the house that Solomon built for the Name of Yahweh. In 51 Yahweh sent the prophets, which were mostly killed, except for Eliyah who was brought up to heaven in 53. Enoch  89:66 through 68 apparently describe the carrying away into captivity of Israel, or it might be the judgement in the time of Amos. And 89:75-76 appear to describe the carrying away into captivity of Judah to Babylon.

Then on to Chapter 90:9, the great horn seems to be the Messiyah, who is killed in verse 18 (but in 92:3 "And the righteous one shall arise from sleep," certainly sounds like a prediction that the Messiyah would be killed and rise again from death). And then in 90:19 a great sword is given, which is probably the return of Yahushua to earth. Revelation describes Him as having a sharp sword proceeding from His mouth. Verse 20 is the final judgement of Yahweh. After that everyone who is left live together in happiness forever.

Enoch tells us that the history of the world, from creation to the final judgement, is at least ten thousand years:

Enoch 18:16 and bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated [even] for ten thousand years.'
Enoch 21:6 and are bound here till ten thousand years,

According to my understanding of Enoch's timeline, which I show below, Noah's Flood was about 6,000 years ago. And we know the Chinese have a recorded history of about 5,500 years, so this fits well. However, this length of time is longer than that in Jubilees and the bible. The Books of Adam and Eve tell us that it would be at least 5,500 years past Adam's sin when the Messiyah would come, and this agrees perfectly with Enoch (e.g. Second Book 19:1). The Humane Gospel of the Essenes tells us that the Messiyah was also the Word of Yahweh who appeared to Adam and Eve, and agrees with the 5,500 years. Psalms seems to indicate a longer period, as a generation is more than ten years. But then again, some of those generations could well live after the ten thousand years are over:

The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "Being anointed thus with the set-apart Spirit and commissioned by the Eternal All as grand prophet and interpreter of the set-apart Law, Yahushua Messiyah would now with full authority from above reveal unto earthly man His mission of mercy. Fulfilling many prophecies of old, the Messiyah would keep His promise to Adam made some 5,500 years previously, that He come to earth like Yahweh and redeem Adam and all his righteous seed from the bondage of death." "For I am that food of Yahweh which comes down from heaven and gives life unto the world ... I am the true Bread, I am the living Vine, the same am I that appeared unto Adam and promised his deliverance. For they that come to me shall never hunger, and they that believe on me shall never thirst. And verily I say unto you, except you eat the flesh and drink the blood of Yahushua, you have no life in you.... For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Yahweh who sent me."

Psalms 105:8 He has remembered His covenant for ever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations,

In Chapter 93 it looks like Enoch begins the telling of the ten thousand years with each thousand years given as a week.
~~Enoch 93:3 "'I was born the seventh in the first week,". --He was the sixth generation down from Adam, born 622 years after Adam was created (Genesis 5).
~~Enoch 93:4 "And after me there shall arise in the second week great wickedness, and deceit shall have sprung up; and in it there shall be the first end. And in it a man shall be saved;". --The 'great wickedness' was the malaks breeding with human women. The 'first end' is the Flood, and Noah is the man who was saved from it. Noah's Flood occurred more than a thousand years after the birth of Enoch.
~~Enoch 93:5 "And after that in the third week at its close a man shall be elected". --Probably Abraham. However, Abraham died about 465 years after the Flood, at 175 years old (Genesis 25:7). So perhaps that 'week' was only about 500 years long.
~~Enoch 93:6 "And after that in the fourth week, at its close, visions of the holy and righteous shall be seen, and a law for all generations, and an enclosure shall be made for them." --Perhaps the 'enclosure' is the promised land which the Israelites had been delivered to? The 'law for all generations' was probably that given by Mosheh (Moses). And they did indeed see visions of Yahweh!
~~Enoch 93:7 "And after that in the fifth week, at its close, the house of glory and dominion shall be built for ever." --Is this the temple Solomon built?
~~Enoch 93:8 "And after that in the sixth week all who live in it shall be blinded, and the hearts of all of them shall wickedly forsake wisdom. And in it a man shall ascend; and at its close the house of dominion shall be burned with fire, and the whole race of the chosen root shall be dispersed." --The man who ascended must be the life and death and resurrection of the Messiyah. The temple is burned when the Jews are taken captive by the Romans, and then dispersed across the nations until our generation. This is nearly the same timeline predicted in the Books of Adam and Eve.
~~Enoch 93:9 "And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise," --Christianity, no doubt.
~~Then there is a second Chapter 91, beginning with Enoch 91:12 "And after that there shall be another, the eighth week, that of righteousness," --Maybe the "righteousness" refers to the recent "Sacred Name Movement" which is finally spreading the true word among the nations of the world? Or maybe it is an event held in heaven?
~~Enoch 91:14 And after that, in the ninth week, the righteous judgement shall be revealed to the whole world, and all the works of the wicked shall vanish from all the earth, and the world shall be written down for destruction." --Apparently during the ninth millenium is when Yahushua returns to the earth to judge and rule, just a little more than 2000 years after the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. Yahushua is to rule 1000 years according to Revelation, and then satan will be released again for some amount of time.
~~Enoch 91:15 "And after this, in the tenth week in the seventh part, there shall be the great eternal judgement," --This is the final judgement of Yahweh, where the old heaven and old earth pass away, and are replaced with a new heaven and a new earth.
~~Enoch 91:17 "And after that there will be many weeks without number for ever, and all shall be in goodness and righteousness, and sin shall no more be mentioned for ever." --The reign of Yahweh on the earth!

Here, I made an image based upon my speculation:


The Book of Enoch comes in five distinct parts, yet they all fit together as a coherent whole. They all sound as if they were written by the same person (save for the fragment from the Book of Noah).

The book sounds as if it was indeed written in ancient times, well before Moshe, and it has everything from Genesis to Revelation. In many places it claims to be written by Enoch himself, and many consider him to be the first prophet writing with letters. This is very powerful reading. It appears fully in agreement with the other scriptures. I believe the Book of Enoch could be considered scriptural. I find no reason to consider otherwise. And so I present it here as well as I can. In chapter one Enoch predicts the end of this world, similar to Revelation:

1:3 Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them: The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling,
4 And the eternal Yahweh will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai, and appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.
5 And all shall be smitten with fear. And the Watchers shall quake, and great fear and trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth.
6 And the high mountains shall be shaken, and the high hills shall be made low, and shall melt like wax before the flame
7 And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder, and all that is upon the earth shall perish, and there shall be a judgement upon all.
8 But with the righteous He will make peace. And will protect the elect, and mercy shall be upon them. And they shall all belong to Yahweh, and they shall be prospered, and they shall all be blessed. And He will help them all, and Light shall appear unto them, and He will make peace with them'.
9 And behold! He comes with ten thousands of His holy ones to execute judgement upon all, and to destroy all the wicked: and to convict all flesh of all the works of their wickedness which they have wickedly committed, and of all the hard things which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.

This book is sometimes called 1Enoch. I also have the Book of the Secrets of Enoch, sometimes called 2Enoch; and if you are interested I also have the Emerald Tablets of Thoth Hermes.

The ten-thousand-year timeline given above does not agree with the common idea that the earth is now about 6000 years old, and that the 1000-year "millenium period" (which is just about to start) corresponds to the seventh-day sabbath (one day equals one thousand years, and this world structure echos the creation week). In the Secrets of Enoch we read that same belief:

Secrets of Enoch 33:1 And I appointed the eighth day also, that the eighth day should be the first-created after my work, and that the first seven revolve in the form of the seventh thousand, and that at the beginning of the eighth thousand there should be a time of not-counting, endless, with neither years nor months nor weeks nor days nor hours.
