 Dear Shari and Toby,  

 


THE REST OF THE BIBLE

2nd Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.  ---Paul writing to Timothy

 

 

 

The New Testament Bible as we know it has gone through a lot of changes. It started as many writings and letters circulating among the churches. It ranged from first-hand accounts by the apostles to opinions or stories previously passed down as oral tradition.  The Bible has changed significantly during the REAL HOLY WARS. Not the ones where The Britts and other Europeans went to Jerusalem to fight for the Temple ground, but the war that started around the end of the first century, involved the entire western world and has continued until today. It is a religious war between many groups of Christians and between Christians and ALL other religions. To understand what started the war it is necessary to follow the origin and development of the surviving scriptures available to us today. Taking a tip from Paul, we need to include ALL available scriptures and evaluate their worth by looking at their origin, purpose, content, and consistency with all other scriptures. In order to have a ruler to measure the worth of these I will suggest the one and only scripture written by an author with undisputable credentials for the purpose of providing guidance for all mankind. Its content is consistent with guidance given in all other scriptures. The scripture I’m describing is the Ten Commandments, the ONLY scripture written directly by Yahweh the God of  Abraham (twice).

  

The Sumerian clay tablets (4500BC to 2000BC) found at Nineveh provided a rich description of mankind’s history similar to Genesis. The two are not contradictory but supplementary. These were dictated to the Priests who served the Anunnaki. The Anunnaki were considered deities at that time and there was no need for other religions. According to the Tablets, it was Enlil (one of the Elohim /Anunnaki) who commanded Abraham to go to the western lands where Israel is today. There were approximately 600 Anunnaki in residence throughout the world at that time. Around 800 to 500 BC they left Earth surface and their personal, direct guidance was not physically available except through telepathy and visions which continue today. The vacuum created by the lack of personal guidance of the Anunnaki During this period, was filled on each continent by people who taught science, ethics, politics and government from old records, insight or communication with the “ones who from heaven came”. As a side note, later information indicates the Anunnaki may still be a group of earthlings living underground today.

 

Confucianism, also known as Ruism, is an ethical and philosophical system, on occasion described as a religion, developed from the teachings of the Chinese philosopher Confucius (551–479 BCE). Confucianism originated as an "ethical-sociopolitical teaching" during China’s Spring and Autumn Period, but later developed metaphysical and cosmological elements in the Han Dynasty. Following the official abandonment of Legalism in China after the Qin Dynasty, Confucianism became the official state ideology of the Han. Nonetheless, from the Han period onwards, most Chinese emperors have used a mix of Legalism and Confucianism as their ruling doctrine. The disintegration of the Han in the second century CE opened the way for the soteriological doctrines of Buddhism and Taoism to dominate intellectual life at that time.

 

Hinduism is a categorization of distinct intellectual or philosophical points of view, rather than a rigid, common set of beliefs. These concepts were not considered a religion at that time but were the explanation of how the world had developed as presented by the Anunnaki.  In the 3rd millennium BC, the Hindu concepts practiced today were developed.

 

Buddhism is a nontheistic religion "right way of living", that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teachings attributed to Gautama Buddha, commonly known as the Buddha ("the awakened one"). According to Buddhist tradition, the Buddha lived and taught in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BC.

 

Egyptian Scriptures were developed. These were written in hieroglyphics. Much of this has to do with religion/science developed prior to 10,000 BC. These concepts, stories, and historical events were recorded for knowledge to be passed down. The origin of much of this knowledge was from the kings (worshiped as deities). Many of the Sumerian concepts were included. The two oldest versions are the Kolbrin (~1400 BC) and the Book of the Dead (I have not studied  this one). The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BCE) to around 50 BCE. The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated rw nw prt m hrw is translated as "Book of Coming Forth by Day". Another translation would be "Book of emerging forth into the Light". "Book" is the closest term to describe the loose collection of texts consisting of a number of magic spells intended to assist a dead person's journey through the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife and written by many priests over a period of about 1000 years.

The Book of the Dead was part of a tradition of funerary texts which includes the earlier Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, which were painted onto objects, not papyrus. Some of the spells included were drawn from these older works and date to the 3rd millennium BCE. Other spells were composed later in Egyptian history, dating to the Third Intermediate Period (11th to 7th centuries BCE). A number of the spells which made up the Book continued to be inscribed on tomb walls and sarcophagi, as had always been the spells from which they originated. The Book of the Dead was placed in the coffin or burial chamber of the deceased.

There was no single or canonical Book of the Dead. The surviving papyri contain a varying selection of religious and magical texts and vary considerably in their illustration. Some people seem to have commissioned their own copies of the Book of the Dead, perhaps choosing the spells they thought most vital in their own progression to the afterlife. The Book of the Dead was most commonly written in hieroglyphic or hieratic script on a papyrus scroll, and often illustrated with vignettes depicting the deceased and their journey into the afterlife.

 

All of the above point back to Immortal Man, God, Yahweh, Brahma—as the one who created man and begotten Son of Man, Christ, Adam of the light, Manu----. All of the above have a Pantheistic view of religion. God, Yahweh, Brahma,was created by another power in another dimension. All of the above have developed into religions in different parts of the world until today they are very clear and concise as to what is needed to improve our selves.

 

The Old Testament or Hebrew Bible starts with a BRIEF creation story provided by Yahweh to Moses and his directions for daily living. This is a similar story to the Sumerian Tablets. Both stories then tell of a priest who was relocated to UR in approximately 2200 BC, and his son Abram. Abram was commanded to move and settle in the western edge of Sumeria and take control of the region. His name was changed to Abraham and was promised the Earth would be blessed by his to-be-begotten children. These children became known as the Israelites and Arabs. Their history is recorded in the rest of the Old Testament. About 700-800 years later (middle of the 5th century BC), when Yahweh did not walk with the Israelites but did talk with them, it was stated that a leader/teacher would be born in a little over 450 years and would shed much light on how man was to progress. This “light” was Jesus, The Son of Man. In less than two years his teachings would affect everything that happened for the next 2,000 years.

 

The teachings and theology of Jesus (Jimmanuel, Immanuel, Isa) were recorded by several people from the time of his crucifixion through the next 150 years. Exactly who wrote some of these stories is not well documented. The four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) read like four people standing on each of four corners of an intersection describing a car wreck. One says the red car was a little over the line. Another says the green car was a little over the line. Another says both were a little over the line and that was the cause of the accident. They differ a little in the details but together, they clearly describe the accident. These gospels clearly agree on theology and general themes of what Jesus said and did. Another gospel, Talmud of Jimmanuel attributed to Judas Iscarioth, provides a clearly different theology. This theology aligns with the Gnostic beliefs and does not support the governing of people by the Church. These scrolls were found in 1963 and were translated by Isa Rashid into German from Aramaic. The original scrolls were claimed to have been destroyed by the Israelis. A copy and translation were provided, in 1974, to Billy Meier. The theology explained in this book agrees more closely with other religions. The inconsistencies noted in the New Testament are directly addressed and corrected.

 

For the first 300 years AD the church was groups meeting in houses and then larger buildings. Information and scriptures were shared along with ideas and concepts. The letters and writings forming the New Testament had been gathering into a list since about 140AD. Lists for the Old Testament had been gathering since about 500BC. The first known attempt to create a list, 3rd century BC, is known as the Septuagint. It is from the Latin word septuaginta (meaning seventy), is a translation of the Hebrew Bible and some related texts into Koine Greek. As the primary Greek translation of the Old Testament, it is also called the Greek Old Testament. This translation is quoted in the New Testament, particularly in the Pauline epistles, and also by the Apostolic Fathers and later Greek Church Fathers. The title and its Roman numeral acronym LXX refer to legendary seventy Jewish scholars who solely translated the Five Books of Moses as early as the late 2nd century BCE.[3] This translation is not extant, except as rare fragments. By the early 3rd century, Christian theologians like Origen of Alexandria may have been using—or at least were familiar with—the same 27 books found in modern New Testament editions, though there were still disputes over the canonicity of some of the writings (see also Antilegomena). Likewise by 200, the Muratorian fragment shows that there existed a set of Christian writings somewhat similar to what is now the New Testament, which included four gospels and argued against objections to them. Thus, while there was a good measure of debate in the Early Church over the New Testament canon, the major writings were accepted by almost all Christians by the middle of the 3rd century.

 

The Old Testament or Hebrew Bible is specific to the Jewish people and their relationship to Yahweh. It only provides the requirements for remaining loyal to Yahweh. References the soul (434) are clearly to a physical person with only a couple of ambiguous references to “something else”. The phrase “son of man” clearly refers to a physical man’s son. The New Testament is addressing the Jewish people and the Gentiles relationships to each other. It provides guidance for obtaining eternal life and a relationship to God. References to the soul (36) are divided between referencing to a physical person and clearly referencing the other part of man (13). The phrase “son of man”, as used by Jesus referring to himself, clearly refers to the concept of Jesus’ station in the hierarchical divinity. The development of this “soul” was the central theme in Christ’s teachings. During this first 300 years AD, a significant split in the understanding of Christ’s teachings developed. The larger portion of the church was concerned with persecution by the Roman Government at first and later with how to control the masses in order to establish a political base and promote the church as “God’s Kingdom”. A smaller group, who believed in reaching Christ and God from within one’s self, wanted no external legal system or governing body to direct that connection. The larger group also focused in on this three-dimensional planet as the center of God’s attention. The smaller group believed in a more Pantheistic point of view with “God” being the controller of more than just this universe. The smaller group were the Gnostics. In an Edger Cayce reading he was directly asked about them.

Q. – 21 A problem that concerns a parallel to Christianity. Is Gnosticism the closest type of Christianity to that which is given through this source?

A – 21 This is a parallel, and was the commonly accepted one until there began to be set rules in which there were attempts to take short cuts. And there are none in Christianity.

 

 A council of Christian bishops was convened in Nicaea in Bithynia by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. The results of this Council put an end to the split in the understanding of Christ’s teachings. The larger group became the Catholic Church and they extinguished the Gnostics and their scriptures as heretics. Many of the Gnostic concepts were edited or “translated” out of the scriptures of the “acceptable” list and the Bible as we know it today was formed. The Gnostic scriptures were destroyed except for the buried ones which were rediscovered in the 20TH century near Qumran. The early church fathers regarded anything the Hebrew wrote as "heresies" and called many of the Jews "gnostics"; however, it is quite clear from the writings of Shaul (Paul), from Yahshua himself, and from the apostolic letters (called the "general epistles", the ones written in Hebrew and were disputed by the church fathers) that "gnosticism" was a prevalent religious concept in both Judaism and the Primitive Congregation of Yahshua. These "gnostics" (any first century Jew writing in the Hebrew language about the concept of "good and evil") were considered heretical. The reason for this is that the latter "church" (from 70 C.E. onward) was steeped in Babylonian mysticism due to so many of its members being former pagans who promulgated the "savior god" or the "man-god" of the Babylonian and Egyptian pantheons. The pantheistic view and belief in the power and responsibility of the individual placed the Gnostic concepts at odds with the legalistic Church. This follows an identical pattern as Christ’s teachings of man having internal access to God and the legalistic views of the established Jewish Church. The results were very similar for similar reasons. The Catholic Church extinguished the Gnostics and their writings.

1st Enoch  Book of Enoch

This is a very important book. Jesus quoted and taught from it. It includes the story of “The Watchers”, what they did, what they are doing today and what they are going to do. It was left out of the Bible because it identified who the ancestors of the leaders of the Catholic Church were and their motives.

The Book Of Enoch / Jesus Quoted It And So Did Apostles by pastormustwacc: 4:07pm On Oct 21, 2012

In case you are wondering where Jesus quote enoch?

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. (Mat 5:5) The elect shall possess light, joy and peace, and they shall inherit the earth. (Enoch 5:7 {6:9})

Ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Mat. 19:28) I will place each of them on a throne of glory (Enoch 108:12 {105:26})

Woe unto that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born. (Mat. 26:24) Where will the habitation of sinners be . . . who have rejected the Lord of spirits. It would have been better for them, had they never been born. (Enoch 38:2 {38:2})

Final decree by YAWA FOR THE FATE OF THE WATCHERS

14-5 ''And from hereon you shall not ascend into the shamayim unto all eternity, and in bonds of the earth the decree has gone forth to bind you for all the days of the world. 6 ''And previously you shall have seen the destruction of your beloved sons and you shall have no pleasure in them, but they shall fall before you by the sword. 7 ''And your petition on their behalf shall not be granted, nor yet on your own, even though you weep and pray and speak all the words contained in the writing which I have written.''

 

15-8 'And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. 9 'Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the qodesh watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. 10 'As for the spirits of the shamayim, in the shamayim shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling. 11 'And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble. They take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

 

19 -1 And Uri'ĕl said to me, ''Here shall stand the messengers who have connected themselves with women - and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as mighty ones - till the day of the great judgment in which they shall be rightly-ruled till they are made an end of. 19 2 And the women, also of the messengers who went astray shall become demons.''

 

20-1And these are the names of the qodesh messengers who

watch: 2 Uri'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, who is over the world and over Gehenna. 3 Repha'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, who is over the spirits of men. 4 Ragu'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers who takes vengeance on the world of the lights. 5 Mika'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, in order that he is appointed over the best part of mankind and over disorder. 6 Saraqa'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, who is appointed over the spirits who sin in the spirit. 7 Gabri'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the kerubim. 8 Rame'ĕl, one of the qodesh messengers, whom Elohim appointed over those who rise.

 

DESCRIPTION OF ANARTICA

24 -1 And from there I went to another place of the earth, and he showed me a mountain range of fire which burnt day and night. 24 2 And I went beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the other, and the stones were magnificent and pleasant, magnificent as a whole, of magnificent

appearance and fair exterior: three towards the east, one founded on the other, and three towards the south, one upon the other, and deep rough ravines, none of which joined with any other. 3 And the seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them in height, resembling the seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne. 4 And amongst them was a tree such as I had never yet smelled, neither was any amongst them nor were others like it: it had a fragrance beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and blooms and wood wither not forever, and its fruit is pleasant, and its fruit resembles the dates of a palm. 5 Then I said, ''How pleasant is this tree, and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its blooms very delightful in appearance.'' 6 Then answered Mika'ĕl, one of the qodesh and honoured messengers who was with me, and was their leader. And he said unto me, ''Hanok, why do you ask me regarding the fragrance of the tree, and why do you want to learn the truth?'' 25 2 Then I answered him saying, ''I want to know about all matters, but especially about this tree.'' 3 And he answered saying, ''This high mountain which you have seen, whose summit is like the throne of Elohim, is His throne, where the Qodesh Great One,  יהוה of Esteem, the Eternal Sovereign, will sit, when He shall come down to visit the earth with goodness. 4 ''And as for this fragrant tree; no mortal is permitted to touch it till the great judgment, when He shall take vengeance on all, and bring to its end forever. It shall then be given to the righteous and qodesh. 5 ''Its fruit shall be for food to the elect; it shall be transplanted to the qodesh place, to the Hĕykal of יהוה, the Eternal Sovereign. 6 ''Then they shall rejoice with joy and be glad, and into the qodesh place they shall enter; and its fragrance shall be in their bones, and they shall live a long life on earth, such as your fathers lived. And in their days shall no sorrow, or plague, or torment, or calamity touch them.'' 7 Then I barak the Elohim of Esteem, the Eternal Sovereign, who has prepared such matters for the righteous, and has created them and promised to give to them.

 

 THE STORY OF MANKIND

 

Enoch had dreams and visions about the future of mankind. The detail and accuracy of the events occurring prior to Jesus is clear and concise. This is approximately the time when the Book of Enoch was taken from a verbal account to written material. Even though the dreams and vision at the time of Jesus and later are not as detailed it is still clear enough to identify what he is talking about.

83 And now, my son

Methushelah, I will show you

all my visions which I have seen,

recounting them before you.

2 Two visions I saw before I took a

wife, and the one was quite unlike the

other: the first when I was learning to

write; the second before I took your

mother, I saw a terrible vision. And

regarding them I prayed to .יהוה

3 I had laid down in the house of my

grandfather Mahalal'ĕl; I saw in a

vision how the shamayim collapsed

and was taken away and fell to the

earth.

4 And when it fell to the earth I saw

how the earth was swallowed up in a

great abyss, and mountains were

suspended on mountains, and hills

sank down on hills, and high trees

were torn from their stems, and hurled

down and sunk in the abyss.

5 And after that a word fell into my

mouth, and I lifted up to cry aloud, and

said, ''The earth is destroyed.''

 

6 And my grandfather Mahalal'ĕl woke

me as I lay near him, and said unto

me, ''Why do you cry so, my son, and

why do you make such lamentation?''

7 And I recounted to him the whole

vision which I had seen, and he said

unto me, ''A terrible matter you have

seen, my son, and of grave moment is

your vision as to the secrets of all the

sin of the earth - it must sink into the

abyss and be destroyed with a great

destruction.

8 ''And now, my son, arise and make

petition to יהוה of esteem, since you

are a believer, that a remnant may

remain on the earth, and that He may

not destroy the whole earth.

9 ''My son, from the shamayim all this

will come upon the earth, and upon the

earth there will be great destruction.''

10 After that I arose and prayed and

implored and pleaded, and wrote down

my prayer for the generations of the

world, and I will show all matters to

you, my son Methushelah.

 

11 And when I had gone forth below

and seen the shamayim, and the sun

rising in the east, and the moon going

down in the west, and a few stars, and

the whole earth, and all as He had

known it in the beginning, then I barak

יהוה of right-ruling and exalted Him

because He had made the sun to go

forth from the windows of the east, and

he ascended and rose on the face of

the shamayim, and departed and kept

traversing the path shown unto him.

And I lifted up my hands in

righteousness and barak the

Qadosh and Great One, and spoke

with the breath of my mouth, and with

the tongue of flesh, which Elohim has

made for the children of the flesh of

men, that they should speak with, and

He gave them breath and a tongue

and a mouth that they should speak

with,

 

84

2 ''Baruk are You, O Master,

Sovereign, great and mighty in Your

greatness, Master of the whole

creation of the shamayim, Sovereign

of sovereigns and Elohim of the whole

world. And Your power and reign and

greatness abide forever and ever, and

throughout all generations. Your

dominion, and all the shamayim are

Your throne forever, and the whole

earth Your footstool forever and ever.

 3 ''For You have made and You rule all,

and no matter is too hard for You.

Wisdom does not depart from the

place of Your throne, nor turn away

from Your presence. And You know

and see and hear all matters, and

there is none hidden from You for You

see all.

4 ''And now the messengers of Your

shamayim are guilty of trespass, and

upon the flesh of men Your wrath

abides until the great day of judgment.

 

5 ''And now, O Elohim and Master and

Great Sovereign, I implore and pray to

fulfill my prayer, to leave me a posterity

on earth, and not destroy all the flesh

of man, and make the earth without

inhabitant, so that there should be an

eternal destruction.

6 ''And now, my Master, destroy

from the earth the flesh which has

aroused Your wrath, but the flesh

of righteousness and uprightness

establish as a plant of the eternal

seed, and do not hide Your face from

the prayer of Your servant, O ''.יהוה

And after this I saw another

dream, and I will show the

whole dream to you, my son. 85

2 And Hanok lifted up and spoke to his

son Methushelah, ''To you, my son,

will I speak. Hear my words, incline

your ear to the vision of your father

3 ''Before I took your mother Edna, I

saw in a vision on my bed, and see, a

bull came forth from the earth, and the

 

bull was white, and after it came forth

a heifer, and along with this came forth

two bulls, one of them black and the

other red.

4 ''And the black bull gored the red one

and pursued him over the earth, and I

could no longer see the red bull.

5 ''But the black bull grew and the

heifer went with him, and I saw that

many oxen proceeded from him which

resembled and followed him.

6 ''And the cow, the first one, went from

the presence of the first bull in order to

seek the red one, but did not find, and

lamented with a great lamentation over

him and sought him.

7 ''And I looked till the first bull came to

her and quieted her, and from that time

onward she cried no more.

8 ''And after that she bore another

white bull, and after him she bore

many bulls and black cows.

 

9 ''And I saw in my sleep the white bull

likewise grow and become a great

white bull, and from him proceeded

many white bulls, and they resembled

him. And they began to bring forth

many white bulls, which resembled

them, one following the other, very

many.'' THE WACHERS

And again I saw with my eyes

as I slept, and I saw the

shamayim above, and see, a star fell

from the shamayim, and it arose and

ate and pastured amongst those oxen.

2 And after that I saw the large and the

black oxen, and see, they all changed

their stalls and pastures and their

cattle, and began to live with each

other.

3 And again I saw in the vision, and

looked towards the shamayim, and

see, I saw many stars descend and

 and pastured with them amongst them.GIANTS

4 And I looked at them and saw, and

cast themselves down from the

shamayim to the first star, and they

became bulls amongst those cattle

see, they all let out their members like

horses, and began to cover the cows

of the oxen, and they all became

pregnant and brought forth elephants,

camels, and asses.

5 And all the oxen feared them and

were frightened at them, and began to

bite with their teeth and to devour, and

to gore with their horns.

6 And they began also, to devour those

oxen; and see, all the children of the

earth began to tremble and quake

before them, and to flee from them.

87And again I saw how they

began to gore each other and

to devour each other, and the earth

began to cry aloud.

 see, there came forth from the

shamayim, beings who were like white

men, and four went forth from that

place, and three with them

2 And I raised my eyes again to the

shamayim, and I saw in the vision, and

.

3 And those three that had last come

forth grasped me by my hand and took

me up, away from the generations of

the earth, and raised me up to a high

place, and showed me a tower raised

high above the earth, and all the hills

were lower.

4 And one said unto me, ''Remain here

till you see all that befalls those

elephants, camels, and asses, and the

stars and the oxen, and all of them.''

And I saw one of those four

FATE OF WATCHERS

who had come forth first, and

he seized the first star which had fallen

from the shamayim, and bound it hand

and foot and cast it into an abyss. Now

the abyss was narrow and deep, and

horrible and dark.

 

And one of them drew a sword, and

gave it to those elephants and camels

and asses, then they began to smite

each other, and the whole earth

quaked because of them.

3 And as I was watching in the vision,

see, one of those four who had come

forth, thrown from the shamayim, and

gathered and took all the great stars

whose members were like those of

horses, and bound them all hand and

foot, and cast them in an abyss of the

earth. NOAH AND THE FLOOD

And one of those four went to

the white bull and instructed

him in a secret, without being terrified -

he was born a bull and became a man,

and built for himself a great vessel and

dwelt upon it - and three bulls dwelt

with him in the vessel and they were

covered in. 2 And again I raised my eyes towards the shamayim and saw a high roof,

with seven water torrents upon them,

and those torrents flowed with much

water into an enclosure.

3 And I saw again, and see, fountains

were opened on the surface of the

great enclosure, and the water began

to swell and rise upon the surface, and

I saw the enclosure till all its surface

was covered with water.

4 And the water, the darkness, and

mist increased upon it; and as I looked

at the height of the water, the water

had risen above the height of the

enclosure, and was streaming over the

enclosure, and it stood upon the earth.

5 And all the cattle of the enclosure

were gathered together until I saw how

they sank and were swallowed up and

perished in the water.

 6 But the vessel floated on the water,

while all the oxen and elephants and

camels and asses sank to the bottom

with all the animals, so that I could no

longer see them, and they were not

able to escape; perished and sunk to

the depths.

7 And again I saw in the vision till those

water torrents were removed from the

high roof, and the chasms of the earth

were leveled up and other abysses

were opened.

8 Then the water began to run down

into these, till the earth became visible;

but the vessel rested on the earth, and

the darkness withdrew and light

appeared.

9 But the white bull which had become

a man came out of the vessel, and the

three bulls with him, and one of those

three was white like the bull, and one

of them was red as blood, and one

black, and the white bull departed from

them.

 

10 And they began to bring forth beasts

of the field and birds, so that there

arose different kinds: lions, tigers,

wolves, dogs, hyenas, wild boars,

foxes, squirrels, pigs, hawks, vultures,

hawks, eagles, and ravens; and

STORY OF ABRAHAM

among them was born a white bull.

11 And they began to bite one another;

but that white bull which was born

amongst them brought forth a wild ass

and a white bull with it, and the wild

asses multiplied.

12 But the bull which was born from

him brought forth a black wild boar ISHMAEL and

a white sheep; ISAAC and the former brought forth many boars, but the sheep

brought forth twelve sheep.

13 And when those twelve sheep had

grown, they gave up one of them JOSEPH to the asses, and those asses again gave

up that sheep to the wolves, and the

sheep grew up among the wolves.

 

14 And the Master brought the eleven

sheep to live with it and to pasture with

it among the wolves, and they

multiplied and became many flocks of

sheep. ISRAELITES IN EGYPT

15 And the wolves began to terror

them, and they oppressed them until

they cried aloud on account of their

little ones, and to complain unto their

Master.

16 And a sheep which had been saved

from the wolves fled and escaped to

the wild asses; and I saw the sheep

how they lamented and cried, and

pleaded their Master with all their

might, till that Master of the sheep

descended at the voice of the sheep

from a high abode, and came to them

and pastured them. 17 And He called the sheep which had escaped the wolves, and spoke with it

concerning the wolves that it should

warn them not to touch the sheep.

 

18 And the sheep went to the wolves

according to the word of the Master,

and another sheep met it and went

with it, and the two went and entered

together into the assembly of those

wolves, and spoke with them and

warned them not to touch the sheep

from hereon.

19 And after that I saw the wolves, and

how they oppressed the sheep

exceedingly with all their power; and

the sheep cried aloud.

20 And the Master came to the sheep

and they began to smite those wolves;

and the wolves began to make

lamentation, but the sheep became

quiet and immediately ceased to cry

out.

21 And I saw the sheep till they

departed from amongst the wolves; but

the eyes of the wolves were blinded,

and the wolves departed in pursuit of

the sheep with all their might.

 

22 And the Master of the sheep went

with them, as their leader, and all His

sheep followed Him, and His face was

dazzling and magnificent and

awesome to look upon.

23 But the wolves began to pursue the

sheep till they reached a sea of water.

24 And the sea was divided, and the

water stood on this side and on that

before their face, and their Master led

them and placed Himself between

them and the wolves.

25 And as the wolves did not yet see

the sheep; they proceeded into the

midst of the sea, and the wolves

followed the sheep, and the wolves ran

after them into the sea.

26 And when they saw the Master of

the sheep, they turned to flee before

His face, but the sea gathered itself

together, and became as it had been

created, and the water swelled and

rose till it covered the wolves.

 27 And I saw till all the wolves who

pursued the sheep perished and were

drowned.

28 But the sheep escaped from the

water and went forth into a wilderness,

where there was no water and no

grass; and they began to open their

eyes and to see; and I saw the Master

of the sheep pasturing them and giving

them water and grass, and that sheep

going and leading them.

29 And that sheep ascended to the

summit of that high rock, and the

Master of the sheep sent it to them.

30 And after that I saw the Master of

the sheep who stood before them, and

His appearance was great and

awesome and majestic, and all the

sheep saw Him and were afraid before

His face.

31 And they all feared and trembled

because of Him, and they cried to that

sheep with them which was amongst

them, ''We are not able to stand before

our Master or to look upon Him.''

 

32 And that sheep which led them

again ascended to the summit of the

rock, but the sheep began to be

blinded and to wander from the way

which he had showed them, but that

sheep was not thereof.

33 And the Master of the sheep was

wrathful exceedingly against them, and

that sheep discovered it, and went

down from the summit of the rock, and

came to the sheep, and found the

greatest part of them blinded and

fallen away.

34 And when they saw it they feared

and trembled at its presence, and

desired to return to their folds.

40 YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS

35 And that sheep took other sheep

with it, and came to those sheep which

had fallen away, and began to slay

them; and the sheep feared its

presence, and thus that sheep brought

back those sheep that had fallen away,

and they returned to their folds.

MOSES 36 And I saw in this vision till that sheep became a man and built a

house for the Master of the sheep, and

placed all the sheep in the house.

37 And I saw till this sheep which had

met that sheep which led them fell

asleep: and I saw till all the great

sheep perished and little ones arose in

their place, and they came to a

pasture, and approached a stream of

water. JORDAN

38 Then that sheep, their leader which

had become a man, withdrew from

them and fell asleep, and all the sheep

sought it and cried over it with a great

crying.

39 And I saw till they ceased crying for

that sheep and crossed the stream of

water, and there arose the two sheep

as leaders in the place of those which

had led them and fallen asleep.

 40 And I saw till the sheep came to a

pleasant place, and a pleasant and

OCCUPYING THE PROMISED LAND

magnificent land, and I saw till those

sheep were satisfied; and the house

stood amongst them in the pleasant

land.

41 And sometimes their eyes were

opened, and sometimes blinded, till

another sheep arose and led them and

brought them all back, and their eyes

were opened.

42 And the dogs and the foxes and the

wild boars began to devour those

sheep till the Master of the sheep

raised up another sheep; a ram from

their midst, which led them.

43 And the ram began to butt on either

side those dogs, foxes, and wild boars

till he had destroyed them all.

44 And that sheep whose eyes were

opened saw the ram, which was

amongst the sheep, till it forsook its

esteem and began to butt those

sheep, and trampled upon them, and

behaved itself indecently.

 

45 And the Master of the sheep sent

the lamb to another lamb and raised it

to being a ram and leader of the sheep

instead of that ram which had forsaken

its esteem. DAVID

46 And it went to it and spoke to it

alone, and raised it to being a ram,

and made it the prince and leader of

the sheep; but during all these, those

dogs oppressed the sheep.

47 And the first ram pursued the

second ram, and the second ram

arose and fled before it; and I saw till

the dogs pulled down the first ram.

48 And the second ram arose and led

the little sheep.

49 And those sheep grew and

multiplied; but all the dogs, and foxes,

and wild boars feared and fled before

it, and the ram butted and killed the

wild beasts, and those wild beasts had

no longer any power among the sheep

and robbed them no more.

And the ram brought forth many sheep and fell asleep; and a little sheep became a

ram in its place, and became prince

and leader of those sheep.

50 And the house became great and

broad, and it was built for those sheep.

A tower high and great was built on the

house for the Master of the sheep, and

the house was low, but the tower was

elevated and high, and the Master of

the sheep stood on the tower and they

offered a full table before Him.

51 And again I saw the sheep that they

again strayed and went many ways,

and forsook that, their house, and the

Master of the sheep called some from

amongst the sheep and sent them to

the sheep, but the sheep began to slay

them.

52 And one of them was saved and

was not slain, and it sped away and

cried aloud over the sheep; and they

sought to slay it, but the Master of the

sheep saved it from the sheep, and

brought it up to me, and caused it to

dwell there.

53 And many other sheep He sent to

those sheep to testify unto them and

lament over them.

54 And after that I saw that when they

forsook the house of the Master and

His tower they fell away entirely, and

their eyes were blinded; and I saw the

Master of the sheep how He wrought

much slaughter amongst them in their

herds until those sheep invited that

slaughter and betrayed His place.

55 And He gave them over into the

hands of the lions and tigers, and

wolves and hyenas, and into the hand

of the foxes, and to all the wild beasts,

and those wild beasts began to tear in

pieces those sheep.

56 And I saw that He forsook their

house and their tower and gave them

all into the hand of the lions, to tear

and devour them, into the hand of all

the wild beasts.

57 And I began to cry aloud with all my

might, and to appeal to the Master of

the sheep, and to represent to Him in

regard to the sheep that they were

devoured by all the wild beasts.

 

58 But He remained unmoved, though

He saw it, and rejoiced that they were

devoured and swallowed and robbed,

and left them to be devoured in the

hand of all the beasts.

59 And He called seventy shepherds,

and cast those sheep to them that they

might pasture them, and He spoke to

the shepherds and their companions,

''Let each individual of you pasture the

sheep hereon, and all that I shall

Command you; that do. THE WATCHERS

60 ''And I will deliver them over to you

duly numbered, and tell you which of

them are to be destroyed, and them

you destroy.'' And He gave over to

them those sheep.

61 And He called another and spoke to

him, ''Observe and mark all that the

shepherds will do to the sheep; for

they will destroy more of them than I

have Commanded them.

62 ''And every excess and the

destruction which will be wrought

through the shepherds, record how

many they destroy according to my

Command, and how many according

to their own desire. Record against

every individual shepherd all the

destruction he effects.

 

 

63 ''And read out before Me by

number how many they destroy, and

how many they deliver over for

destruction, that I may have this as a

testimony against them, and know

every deed of the shepherds, that I

may know and see what they do,

whether or not they live by My

Command which I have Commanded

them.

64 ''But they shall not know it, and you

shall not declare it to them, nor

admonish them, but only record

against each individual all the

destruction which the shepherds effect,

each in his time and lay it all before

Me.''

65 And I saw till the shepherds

pastured in their season, and they

began to slay and to destroy more

than they were ordered, and they

delivered the sheep into the hand of

the lions. 66 And the lions and tigers ate and devoured the greater part of the

sheep, and the wild boars ate along

with them; and they burnt the tower

and demolished the house.

67 And I became exceedingly sorrowful

over the tower because the house of

the sheep was demolished, and

afterwards I was unable to see if the

sheep entered the house.

68 And the shepherds and their

associates delivered over the sheep to

all the wild beasts, to devour them,

and each one of them received in his

time a definite number: it was written

by the other in a book how many each

one of them destroyed of them.

69 And each one slew and destroyed

many more than was prescribed; and I

began to weep and lament on account

of those sheep.

70 And thus in the vision I saw the one

who wrote, how he wrote down every

one that was destroyed by those

shepherds, day by day, and carried up

and laid down and even showed the

whole book to the Master of the sheep

- all that they had done, and all that

each one of them had made away

with, and all that they had given over

to destruction.

71 And the book was read before the

Master of the sheep, and He took the

book from his hand and read it and

sealed it and laid it down.

72 And immediately I saw how the

shepherds pastured for twelve hours,

and see, three of those sheep turned

back and came and entered and

began to build up all that had fallen

down of the house; but the wild boars

tried to prevent them, but they were

not able.

73 And they began again to build as

before, and they raised up the tower,

and it was named the high tower; and

they began again to place a table

before the tower, but all the bread on it

was polluted and not pure.

74 And as regarding all this, the eyes of

the sheep were blinded so that they

did not see, and their shepherds

likewise; and they delivered them in

large numbers to their shepherds for

destruction, and they trampled the

sheep with their feet and devoured

them.

75 And the Master of the sheep

remained unmoved till all the sheep

were dispersed over the field and

mingled with them, and they did not

save them out of the hand of the

beasts.

76 And the one who wrote the book

carried it up, and showed it and read it

before the Master of the sheep, and

implored Him on their account, and

pleaded with Him on their account as

he showed Him all the doings of the

shepherds, and gave testimony before

Him against all the shepherds. And he

took the actual book and laid it down

beside Him and departed.

And I saw till that in this

manner, thirty-five shepherds

undertook the pasturing, and by

number they completed their periods

as did the first; and others received

them into their hands, to pasture them

for their period, each shepherd in his

own period.

90

2 And after that I saw in my vision all

the birds of the shamayim coming, the

eagles, the vultures, the hawks, the

ravens; but the eagles led all the birds;

and they began to devour those

sheep, and to peck out their eyes and

to devour their flesh.

3 And the sheep cried out because

their flesh was being devoured by the

birds; and as for me I looked and

lamented in my sleep over the

shepherd who pastured the sheep.

4 And I saw until the sheep were

devoured by the dogs and eagles and

hawks, and they left neither flesh nor

skin nor sinew remaining on them till

only their bones stood there; and their

bones too fell to the earth and the

sheep became few.

 

5 And I saw until the twenty-three had

undertaken the pasturing and

completed in their numbered periods

fifty-eight times.

6 But see, lambs were borne by those

white sheep, and they began to open

their eyes and to see, and to cry to the

sheep.

7 Therefore, they cried to them, but

they did not listen to what they said to

them, but were exceedingly deaf, and

their eyes were exceedingly blinded.

8 And I saw in the vision how the

ravens flew upon those lambs and

took one of those lambs, and dashed

the sheep in pieces and devoured

them.

9 And I saw till horns grew upon those

lambs, and the ravens cast down their

horns; and I saw till there sprouted a

great horn of one of those sheep, and

their eyes were opened. JESUS

10 And it looked at them and their eyes

opened, and it cried to the sheep, and

the rams saw it and all ran to it.

11 And notwithstanding all this, the

eagles and vultures and ravens and

hawks still kept tearing the sheep and

swooping down upon them and

devouring them: still the sheep

remained silent, but the rams lamented

and cried out.

12 And those ravens fought and battled

with it and sought to lay low its horn,

but they had no power over it.

13 And I saw till the shepherds and

eagles and the vultures and kites

came, and they cried to the ravens that

they should break the horn of the ram.

And they battled and fought with it, and

it battled with them and cried that its

help might come.

14 And I saw till the man, who wrote

down the names of the shepherds and

lifted up into the presence of the

Master of the sheep. CLOSE OF THE AGE

15 And I saw till the Master of the

sheep came to them in wrath, and all

who saw Him fled, and they all fell

from before His face.

 

16 All the eagles and vultures and

ravens and hawks were gathered

together, and there came with them all

the sheep of the field, even all came

together, and helped each other to

break the horn of the ram.

17 And I saw the man, who wrote the

Book according to the Command of

יהוה , till he opened the Book

concerning the destruction which those

twelve last shepherds had wrought,

and showed that they had destroyed

much more than their predecessors,

before the Master of the sheep.

18 And I saw till the Master of the

sheep came to them and took in His

hand the staff of His wrath, and smote

the earth, and the earth broke apart,

and all the beasts and all the birds of

the shamayim fell from among the

sheep, and were swallowed up in the

earth and it covered them.

19 And I saw till a great sword was

given to the sheep, and the sheep

proceeded against all the beasts of the

 

field to slay them, and all the beasts

and the birds of the shamayim fled

before their face. 2072 – RESTORE THE TEMPLE, LIVE IN THE LORD’S SIGHT

20 And I saw till a throne was erected

in the pleasant land, and the Master of

the sheep sat Himself upon it, and the

other took the sealed Books and

opened those Books before the Master

of the sheep. FATE OF THE WATCHERS

21 And the Master called those men,

the seven first white ones, and

commanded that they should bring

before Him, beginning with the first

star which led the way, all the stars

whose members were like those of

horses, and they brought them all

before Him.

22 And He said to the man who wrote

before Him, being one of those seven

white ones, and said to him, ''Take

those seventy shepherds to whom I

delivered the sheep, and who, taking

them on their own authority slew more

than I commanded them.''

 

23 And see, they were all bound, I saw,

and they all stood before Him.

24 And the judgment was held first over

the stars, and they were judged and

found guilty, and went to the place of

condemnation, and they were cast into

an abyss, full of fire and flaming, and

full of pillars of fire.

25 And those seventy shepherds were

judged and found guilty, and they were

cast into the fiery abyss.

26 And I saw at that time how, like an

abyss was opened in the midst of the

earth, full of fire, and they brought

those blinded sheep, and they were all

judged and found guilty and cast into

this fiery abyss, and they burned - now

this abyss was to the right of the

house.

27 And I saw the sheep burning and

their bones burning.

28 And I stood up to see till they folded

up the old house, and carried off all the

pillars, and all the beams and

 ornaments of the house that were at

the same time folded up with it, and

they carried it off and laid it in a place

in the south of the land. KINGDOM OF GOD

29 And I saw till the Master of the

sheep brought a new house greater

and higher than that first, and put it up

in the place of the first which had been

folded up. All its pillars were new, and

its ornaments were new and larger

than those of the first - the old one

which He had taken away - and all the

sheep were within it.

30 And I saw all the sheep which had

been left, and all the beasts on the

earth, and all the birds of the

shamayim, falling down and doing

obeisance to those sheep and making

petition to, and obeying them in every

matter.

31 And after this, those three who were

clothed in white and had seized me by

my hand who had taken me up before,

and the hand of the ram also seizing

hold of me, they took me up and put

me down in the midst of the sheep

before the judgment took place.

32 And the sheep were all white, and

their wool was abundant and clean.

33 And all that had been destroyed and

dispersed, and all the beasts of the

field, and all the birds of the

shamayim, assembled in the house,

and the Master of the sheep rejoiced

with great joy because they were all

good and had returned to His house.

34 And I saw till they laid down the

sword, which had been given to the

sheep, and they brought it back into

the house, and it was sealed before

the presence of the Master, and all the

sheep were invited into the house, but

it did not hold them.

35 And the eyes of them all were

opened, and they saw the good, and

there was not one among them that

did not see.

36 And I saw that the house was large

and broad and very full.

37 And I saw that a white bull was born,

with large horns and all the beasts of

 

the field and all the birds of the

shamayim feared him and made

petition to him all the time.

38 And I saw till all their generations

were transformed, and they all became

white bulls; and the first among them

became a lamb, and that lamb became

a great animal and had great black

horns on its head; and the Master of

the sheep rejoiced over it and over all

the oxen.

39 And I slept in their midst, and I

awoke and saw all matters.

40 This is the vision which I saw while I

slept, and I awoke and barak יהוה of

righteousness and gave Him esteem.

 

41 Then I wept with a great weeping

and my tears did not cease till I could

no longer endure. When I saw, they

flowed on account of what I had seen;

for all matters shall come and be

fulfilled, and all the deeds of men in

their order were shown to me.

42 On that night I remembered the first

vision, and because of it I wept and

was troubled because I had seen that

vision.

HIS VISION

And after that Hanok both

gave and began to recount

from the books. And Hanok said,

matters, therefore I Hanok will declare

me in the vision of the shamayim, and

which I have known through the word

3 And Hanok began to recount from

the books and said, ''I was born the

seventh in the first week, while judgment

and righteousness still endured. PREFLOOD

 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; and after it is NOAH

and a Law shall be made for the

sinners.

close, a man shall be elected as the

of the Qadosh One without being

thoughts, and who is there that can

look upon all the works of the

shamayim?

 

 

12 And how should there be

 one who could look upon the shamayim,

and who is there that could understand the

matters of the shamayim and see a

being or a spirit and could tell of it, or

ascend and see all their ends and

think them, or do like them?

13 And who is there of all men that

could know what is the breadth and

the length of the earth, and to whom

 

has been shown the measure of all of them? 14 Or is there anyone who could discern the length of the shamayim and how great is its height, and upon what it is founded, and how great is the number of the stars, and where all the lights rest?''
