The Blessing of Enoch—The Hope of the Righteous
In the first chapter of the book of Enoch testifies by the mouth of the Lord that the end of the sinner, the ungodly, and the reprobate is at hand. His testimony was carried in the days of Noah before the flood to warn the ungodly of his ungodliness and his warning is carried today to this generation before the Tribulation to again sound the warning, that the time of God’s wrath is at hand against all unrighteousness and deceitfulness of sin.
As in the book of Genesis so here in the book of Enoch God brings to the attention of man that a race of angels has infiltrated Adam’s bloodline. Who are these fallen angels? How did their acculturation dominate the thinking of mankind? And why has God pronounced a judgment against them?
We’re starting in the book of Enoch series. You can open your Bibles to the book of Jude, and find verse 14 (there’s only one chapter there). It’s talking a little about Enoch and how the apostles reflected upon his writings; Jude 1:14, “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, (vs 15) To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
Also turn to the book of Hebrews, Hebrews chapter 11, where we will also see how the Apostle Paul, as Jude, quoted out of the book of Enoch and made references to him. Chapter 11, verse 5, which says, “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him:” and it goes on, “for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.”
We can see that the Apostle Paul and Jude both quoted from Enoch, and made references to him. Now, I’m going to go to the book of Enoch, and we’ll see some of these things, which they quoted.
The Book of Enoch, Book I: chapters 1-36. And this is chapter 1:
1 The blessing of Enoch: with which he blessed the elect and the righteous who would be present on the day of tribulation at (the time of) the removal of all the ungodly ones.
You can see the same language here as Jude used—of the ungodly ones.
Ungodliness has to do with the absence of fruit. Why are they absent of the fruit of God? Because they’re not in covenant with God; they do not bear the image of Christ. The ungodly ones are those which are absent of Christ’s image, Christ’s likeness.
The blessing of Enoch—the word, blessing there, has to do with the knowledge of the secret things.
Enoch was the first week; according to the weeks of Enoch, he was the first week. And here God was putting Christ in the face of Enoch—Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and for ever. And Enoch, at the time of this revelation, became the hub (the steward) of this first week (the refuge), so that all those that (would) join to this holy knowledge would find Christ for faith.
So, the tether of your discernment is first joined to the steward, which knowledge the Spirit gives, and by this, builds with the anointing. And Enoch is a good example of this—how God gave Enoch this knowledge, and Enoch was a point of discernment for the knowledge of the other people—those who would hear him. So,
“The blessing of Enoch”
has to do with this knowledge that he is given as a tether and a tutor for that which would be a fulcrum, or a place of discernment, with which he blessed the elect—by this knowledge. By this blessing he blessed the elect.
The holy knowledge, or the mystery of the God-Code, is in this knowledge, and the unfolding of God’s Christ is in this matter of his word to those of faith. By this knowledge Christ would be unfolded to the understanding of those that walk by faith—the elect.
The elect: those that are selected out of a group, which is a remnant.
“The blessing of Enoch: with which he blessed the elect and the righteous”
Enoch was the grandfather of Noah. Noah was going to carry the tradition of the second week. Let’s start with verse 1 again:
“The blessing of Enoch:”
which, again, has to do with the unfolding of the knowledge of these secret things. The word, blessing, in definition, carries more than just that which is an acknowledgment of someone sneezing. The word, blessing, has to do with a substance of knowledge.
So (we see that) the Lord is blessing Enoch with the substance of knowledge. And it’s by this tradition (of knowledge) that God would manifest Christ in our (this) dimension; that Christ would be seen in this knowledge. So, it’s the blessing of Enoch, being that first week.
Enoch was a refuge and a steward of this week, and all those that would build with this knowledge, Enoch would be the tether of their discernment. The tether of their discernment would be first joined to the steward, which is the knowledge of the Spirit. And that which the Spirit gives and builds with is called, the anointing.
The elect are those that build confidence with God and a trust with God by this anointing, from that foundation of truth. We can see it back in the earliest writings; this particular tradition, which the apostles preached to the first century church, and which we’re giving back to the church today, the same form of knowledge, the same blessing,
“with which he blessed the elect”
those that are selected (from a group), which are carrying this tradition. And we’re going to see the God-Code unfolded in these things.
“and the righteous who would be present on the day of tribulation”
Here Enoch was writing about that revelation, which he received, concerning an even that would take place upon his ascending to the 7th heaven.
Enoch was going to be a prototype of our blessing, but the prototype of our blessing would far exceed that of Enoch’s experience because that was only a portion. God was going to put a portion of this token and sign within the vessel of Enoch, but the fullness of it was manifested in the face of Jesus Christ when he came down here.
“who would be present on the day of tribulation at (the time of) the removal of all the ungodly ones.”
The word, ungodly, in definition, are those which are fruitless. The fruitless do not carry the likeness of God.
The likeness of God is seen in your faith, and the faith we’re expressing is in that foundation, which is put within the heart.
“And Enoch, the blessed”
There’s the word, blessed, again; he received great favor of knowledge from God.
God packaged this knowledge and gave it as a gift to Enoch, who in return, gave it as a gift to those in this dimension; he brought the knowledge from the 7th heaven into the 1st heaven. And the knowledge he wrote was maintained, as was prophesied, would be revealed in this last time.
“And Enoch, the blessed and righteous man”
He’s a righteous man because he is sharing in the rejoicing of Christ, and he’s caring and protecting that standard.
“the blessed and righteous man of the Lord”
He’s carrying that standard of the Spirit, which we’re (also) doing today.
“took up (his parable) while his eyes were open and he say, and said, “This is a holy vision from the heavens which the angels showed me:”
the ministering spirits; the angels as the tether and the tutor gave this gift to Enoch. Enoch, in return, gave it as a gift to the church.
We see that in Rev 1:1: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;” which he gave to his angel, to his servant John. That’s a tradition, which God has preserved for today—the revelation of the heavenlies, unfolded, and now in this dimension of the earthly
“which the angels showed me”
the tether and the tutor
“and I heard from them”
“everything and I understood.”
because they set order to this knowledge for me; the beginning of wisdom (“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”.)
Enoch understood that if the tether was severed, that is, if the tether of this grace was severed from its giver, from the Godhead, that the knowledge itself would fall into decay (corruption), and die. The knowledge would take on the image of man and lose the likeness of God. And that form of gospel is antichrist today.
The gospel that’s untethered from the stewardship, untethered from the throne, being severed from that life and light, falls into decay. It takes on a different form. It becomes a dead faith. It becomes a graceless knowledge. So, this
“holy vision from the heavens which the angels showed me: and I heard from them everything and I understood.”
“I look not for this generation”
speaking of his own (my) generation—at that time, 5000 years ago. He says,
“I look not for this generation”
that is, that these things will be unfolded in its fulness; but he was looking for the future generation
“the distant one that is coming.”
In the future generation, this mystery will be unfolded.
Jesus said the same thing, that many righteous men and many prophets have desired to penetrate this knowledge, and have not been able to Jesus said, I’m speaking this penetration, or, I’m unfolding to you at this time myself.
“I look not for this generation but for the distant one that is coming.”
thousands of years in the future.
“I speak about the elect ones and concerning them.”
In other words, this holy knowledge is for them, the elect ones; those which are of covenant.
Those that are of covenant, this knowledge will bless them because it’s going to give contrast for discernment, and by that we will be able to recognize those that hate God and carry a false piety.
Enoch, in the first week, by the knowledge of God, was able to distinguish and give understanding to those of his time between those who love God and those who hate God. And we see this particular pattern and contrast written throughout all the epistles. The apostles wrote by that same Spirit, which Enoch is speaking of and from at the time of his writings (the same Spirit of which the apostles spoke and wrote in their time).
And it’s the same Spirit by which we’re speaking today. Those of covenant.
We are keeping the terms of this covenant, which Christ has delivered to us. That which he delivered to the apostles of the first century is also that which is unfolding at this present time in the twenty-first century.
Those that are in covenant will be able to discern; they would be the discerning ones, the elect, those which God has severed and taken out for himself, as the prophet (Isaiah) said (to Israel), “Come out from among them.”
Jesus, being the token of himself, being the token of righteousness, also severed out from those of his time. As Jesus said, “All those that you have given me I have kept; none of them is lost, but the son of perdition.” 
Judas Iscariot was the son of perdition upon his choosing. Jesus selected him, knowing that he was the son of perdition. And even though Jesus selected him to be an apostle, yet Judas carried a tradition of corruption in him; the knowledge he received, he kept putting within the scope of his own prejudice. And he was the betrayer.
All those that take the knowledge of God, severing it from the Godhead are the betrayers of Christ, the ministers of unrighteousness. They’re trying to give the image of Satan a makeover with the likeness of God—like putting lipstick on the lips of a demon. The demon is still a demon no matter how you try to dress it. Because the foundation is corrupt, so is its fruit.
