LAW & TESTIMONY IN ENOCH


               The Law and Testimony 
                               in the Book of Enoch
          


The Law and Testimony is also found in two extra-Biblical sources that clearly affirms the application of The Nazarene Code to enter the Kingdom of Heaven which are found in the Book of Enoch and in India.


3 Enochian Scriptures on Keeping the Law & 5 on Keeping Testimony 
 

No doubt this particular source of The Nazarene Code will be controversial to many but it reveals an uncanny consistency to the following 26 Biblical scriptures that indisputably prove that we must keep the Law (Torah) of the Father and Testimony of the Messiah to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

What is asked of you is to have an open mind and simply see the CONSISTENCY OF THE MESSAGE of The Nazarene Code which is found in a non-canonical book the Church of Rome rejected - quite possibly because it identifies their Luciferian gods, practices and punishment by the Lord of spirits.  Furthermore, 
copies of the book of Enoch were found with the Dead Sea scrolls. Some of those copies predated the birth of Jesus. Also, there is strong historical evidence to support at the very minimum Enoch 1 was written on or before 250-325 B.C.

Keep in mind that the Commandments, Statutes and Laws were not yet written on the tablets which came many centuries after Enoch during the time of Mosheh - however, The Path of Righteousness (i.e., The Way/Torah) had been given to Abraham was already  known to those of his bloodline (Genesis 26:4). The Book of Enoch can be read here).  Below is a brief on who Enoch was/is:

WIKIPEDIA - ENOCH

Enoch (/ˈnək/HebrewחֲנוֹךְModern H̱anokhTiberian ḤănōḵArabicإدريس‎ ʼIdrīs) is a figure in Biblical literature. In addition to an appearance in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, Enoch is the subject of many Jewish and Christian writings.

Enoch was the son of Jared (Gen 5:19-21), the father of Methuselah, and the great-grandfather of Noah. Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God, which is a small amount of time compared to his offspring Methuselah, who lived to be 969 years old. The text reads that Enoch "walked with God: and he was no more; for God took him" (Gen 5:22–29). This Enoch is not to be confused with Cain's son Enoch (Gen 4:17). The Christian New Testament has three references to Enoch from the lineage of Seth (Luke 3:37, Hebrews 11:5, Jude 1:14–15).

The Book of Enoch (also 1 Enoch;[1] Ge'ez: መጽሐፈ ሄኖክ mäts'hafä henok) is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noahalthough modern scholars estimate the older sections (mainly in the Book of the Watchers) to date from about 300 BC, and the latest part (Book of Parables) probably to the end of the first century BC.[2]

It is not part of the biblical canon as used by Jews, apart from Beta Israel. Most Christian denominations and traditions may accept the Books of Enoch as having some historical or theological interest or significance, but they generally regard the Books of Enoch as non-canonical or non-inspired.[3] It is regarded as canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church, but not by any other Christian group.

It is wholly extant only in the Ge'ez language, with Aramaic fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls and a few Greek and Latinfragments. For this and other reasons, the traditional Ethiopian belief is that the original language of the work was Ge'ez, whereas non-Ethiopian scholars tend to assert that it was first written in either Aramaic or Hebrew; E. Isaac suggests that the Book of Enoch, like the Book of Daniel, was composed partially in Aramaic and partially in Hebrew.[4]:6 No Hebrew version is known to have survived. The book itself claims to be written by Enoch himself before the Biblical Flood.

The authors of the New Testament were familiar with the content of the story and influenced by it:[5] a short section of 1 Enoch (1 En 1:9 or 1 En 2:1 depending on the translation) is quoted in the New Testament (Letter of Jude 1:14–15), and is attributed there to "Enoch the Seventh from Adam" (1 En 60:8). The text was also utilised by the community that originally collected the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Enoch appears in the Book of Genesis of the Pentateuch as the seventh of the ten pre-Deluge Patriarchs. Genesis recounts that each of the pre-Flood Patriarchs lived for several centuries, had a son, lived more centuries, and then died. Enoch is considered by many to be the exception, who is said to not "see death" "for God took him." Furthermore, it states that Enoch lived 365 years which is extremely short in the context of his peers. The brief account of Enoch in Genesis 5 ends with the note that he "was no more" and that "God took him."

Apocryphal Books of Enoch

Three extensive apocryphal works are attributed to Enoch:

These recount how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of thearchangels, and the immediate attendant on God's throne. He was subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfils of his own accord whatever comes out of the mouth of God, executing His decrees. Much esoteric literature like the 3rd Book of Enoch identifies Enoch as the Metatron, the angel which communicates God's word. In consequence, Enoch was seen, by this literature, and the Rabbinic kabbala of Jewish mysticism, as having been the one which communicated God's revelation to Moses, in particular, the dictator of the Book of Jubilees.


Verses Identifying the Path/Way of Righteousness (i.e., Law/Torah)


Enoch 88:52 
             "
When the rest of the sheep began to grow blind, and to wander from THE PATH which he had shown them 
               
(THE LAW/TORAH); but he knew it not.


Enoch 91:3

             "
Let the righteous man arise from slumber; let him arise, and proceed in THE PATH of righteousness 
               
(KEEP THE LAW/TORAH), in all its paths; and let him advance in goodness and eternal clemency. 
               Mercy shall be showed to the righteous man; upon him shall be conferred integrity and power for ever. 
               In goodness and in righteousness shall he exist, and shall walk in everlasting light; but sin shall perish in
               eternal darkness, nor be seen from that time forward for evermore.


Enoch 97:9-10
 

          "But in those days blessed shall they be, to whom the word of wisdom is delivered; who point out and pursue 
              the path of the Most High; who walk in THE WAY of righteousness
(KEEP THE LAW/TORAH) and who 
              act not impiously with the impious. They shall be saved.


What PATH / WAY is Enoch writing about?  We go to the Bible to explain it:


Psalm 119:34-36
Give me understanding, that I may observe Your law And keep it (KEEP THE LAW/TORAH) with all my heart.35Make me walk in THE PATH of Your commandments, For I delight in it. 36Incline my heart to Your testimonies
(TESTIMONY) And not to dishonest gain.  Psalm 119:34-36


The Book of Enoch is asserted to have been written in Aramaic or Hebrew (see here), and we see that the meaning of "Path" and "Way" has PRECISELY THE SAME MEANING in Hebrew ("Derek") and Greek ("Hodos") see below. Keep this in mind as to the sect the Nazarenes followed called "The Way" which is precisely what the Messiah expressed Himself to be in John 14:6.

Verses Identifying the Testimony of the Messiah in the Book of Enoch


Enoch 41:7
 
         "Nor does the angel prevent this, neither is he endowed with the power of preventing it; for the Judge beholds 
            them all, and judges them all in his own presence.
 
(TESTIMONY)


Enoch 46:2
        
"He answered and said to me, This is the Son of man, to whom righteousness belongswith whom 
            righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of 
            spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting 
            uprightness
. 
(TESTIMONY)


Enoch 48:11
           
"In his presence shall they fall, and not be raised up again; nor shall there be any one to take them out of his 
             hands, and to lift them up: for they have denied the Lord of spirits, and his Messiah. 
(TESTIMONY)


Enoch 61:10

          "Then shall the kings, the princes, and all who possess the earth, glorify Him who has dominion over all things, 
              Him who was concealed; for from the beginning the Son of man existed in secret, whom the Most High 
              preserved in the presence of his power, and revealed to the elect
(TESTIMONY)


Enoch 92:2
            "
And Enoch said, Concerning the children of righteousness, concerning the elect of the world, and concerning the   
              plant of righteousness 
(TESTIMONY OF THE SPROUT / MESSIAH) and integrity.


Clearly, Enoch holds a very unique place in the pantheon of God's great prophets and His Books and Testimony of the Path of Righteousness (LAW/TORAH) and of the Messiah is in keeping with the central theme of the bible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
