We read in the Book of Revelation concerning the judgment at the great white throne:
11 And I saw a great white throne, and Him who sat on top of it: from before whose face, the earth and heaven fled away, and a place was not found for them.
12 And I saw the dead, great and small, who stood before the throne, and the scrolls were opened. And another scroll was opened that is [the one] of judgment, and the dead were judged from those [things] written in the scroll, according to their deeds.
13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and she'ol gave up the dead with them, and each one of them was judged according to his deeds.
14 And death and she'ol were cast into the lake of fire; this is the second death.
15 And he who was not found inscribed in the book of Life, was cast into the lake of fire.
(Rev. 20:11-15 HRV)
But what you may not have known, it that the Book of Revelation is virtually quoting the Book of Enoch in these verses. The Book of Enoch has:
1 And in those days shall the earth also give back that, which has been entrusted to it,
And Sheol also shall give back that, which it has received,
And hell shall give back that which it owes.
5a For in those days the Chosen One shall arise,
2 And he shall choose the righteous and set-apart from among them:
For the day has drawn near that they should be saved.
3 And the Chosen One shall in those days sit on My throne,
And his mouth shall pour forth all the secrets of wisdom and counsel:
For YHWH Tzva’ot has given (them) to him and has glorified him.
(1Enoch 51:1-3 Trimm Translation)
The Book of Enoch is a major key to understanding the “New Testament” and its material is cited by the “New Testament” at least 128 times. But study of the Book of Enoch has been neglected because it was suppressed by the Rabbis in the second century and buy the “Church Fathers” of the fourth century, until it was virtually lost.
The Book of Enoch is the oldest book on earth and it was once cherished by Jews and Christians alike but later fell into disfavor, thus it was lost, not to be rediscovered until modern times. For truth seekers in these last days, the Book of Enoch has a special significance, not just because of its powerful message, but also because of the circumstances under which it has been restored. It may be well to observe here, that YHWH has greatly encouraged and strengthened our faith as we have embraced the truth of Torah and Messiah, as revealed to in the Scriptures, by giving us some greater insights upon the Scriptures from the original Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts and from a greater understanding of their continuity with Second Temple Era Judaism. This reawakening has given rise to conjecture and conversation among us concerning the books mentioned, and referred to, in various places in the Tanak and Ketuvim Netzarim, which are now nowhere to be found. Some simply say that they are lost books; but it seems that the original followers of Yeshua had some of these writings, as Y’hudah (Jude) actually quotes the Prophecy of Enoch, the seventh from Adam.
The Book of Enoch itself prophecies of a great apostasy and a last days restoration of truth:
And thereafter, in the Seventh Week, a perverse generation shall arise. And many shall be its misdeeds and all its doings shall be apostate. And at its close the elect shall be chosen, as witnesses to righteousness, from the eternal plant of righteousness, to whom shall be given seven-fold wisdom and knowledge. And they will uproot the foundations of oppression, And the structure of falsehood therein to destroy it utterly.
(1Enoch 93:9-11 James Trimm Translation)
Then prophecies that the restoration would include a bonus, a restoration of lost books:
But when they write down truthfully all my words in their languages, and do not change or diminish ought from my words but write them all down truthfully –all that I first testified concerning them. Then, I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and the wise to become a cause of joy and uprightness and much wisdom. And to them shall the books be given, and they shall believe in them and rejoice over them, and then shall all the righteous who have learnt therefore all the paths of uprightness be recompensed.’
(1Enoch 104:10-13 James Trimm Translation)
The Book of Enoch must be one of these since it opens saying that its purpose was to be had by those who live in the last days:
1 The words of the blessing with which Chanoch blessed the chosen and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.
2 And he took up his parable and said -Chanoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by Elohim, saw the vision of the Set-apart One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from the words of the watchers and the set-apart ones I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote generation I shall speak.
(1Enoch 1:1-2 James Trimm Translation)
To our joy has YHWH revealed the lost Book of Enoch.
Is this work worthy of your support? What other ministry provides this kind of teaching?
As most of you know, we have been under financial pressure. My wife Kitty (Inga) Trimm spent virtually all of August and September hospitalized, much of it in ICU, fighting for her life. We returned home in October for a long road to recovery (she was almost sent to a long term care facility instead of home). She is still getting home health care nurse visits five times a week. (It was down to three, at one point, but due to complications had to be increased back up to five). Only recently has it been safe to leave her at home for any period of time. We came home behind on bills and with medical bills that were not covered by insurnce. Then last Friday she was re-admitted to the hospital due to complications with one of her surgical wounds. She is back home again, at least for now.
