Ditto. Enoch was taken by "angels" into space, shown the rotation of the earth, the orbit of the earth around the sun, the moon, the seasons, how
many months in a year, how many days in a year, etc. It's a great read for those that seek to further their bible studies.
I remember reading these parts a long time ago. I was looking for them to quote them here but havent found them yet. If ANYONE finds them, please post
Enochs descriptions of "up there" in this thread.
Would this be it? Maybe a part of it anyway.
When I read this part and the rest of it, it was like reading about him (Enoch) traveling through space stopping at all the different planets and
gas clouds, nebulae, and so forth and what angel was in charge of that part or that planet as he was shown all by the angel that was taking him. I
think Enoch had a literal tour of space. It made me realize how the humans of earth and the things that the watchers taught them and how mythology
came to be, but really not all of it is mythology, it is real. They are lesser gods with a small g.
I can understand why the church left out these books from the bible, for one it must of just blew their minds and they must of thought, we can't
let this out to the people, it would be to much for them to comprehend and they must of also thought, this would take away their power and or create
too many off shoot religions or maybe they thought all of the above and more.
I find the Book of Enoch just awesome.
8A vision thus appeared to me. 9Behold, in that vision clouds and a mist invited me; agitated stars and flashes of lightning impelled and pressed me
forwards, while winds in the vision assisted my flight, accelerating my progress. 10They elevated me aloft to heaven. I proceeded, until I arrived at
a wall built with stones of crystal. A vibrating flame (20) surrounded it, which began to strike me with terror. (20) Vibrating flame. Literally, "a
tongue of fire" 11Into this vibrating flame I entered; 12And drew nigh to a spacious habitation built also with stones of crystal. Its walls too,
as well as pavement, were formed with stones of crystal, and crystal likewise was the ground. Its roof had the appearance of agitated stars and
flashes of lightning; and among them were cherubim of fire in a stormy sky. (21) A flame burned around its walls; and its portal blazed with fire.
When I entered into this dwelling, it was hot as fire and cold as ice. No trace of delight or of life was there. Terror overwhelmed me, and a fearful
shaking seized me.
