QUEZON CITY (MindaNews/31 October)—Today, we are in the month of Muharram in the year 1436 in Hijriyyah Calendar. As you know, the most significant period in this month is the day of Ashura (equivalent to 03 November 2014). It is a tradition of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) whenever the day of Ashura comes, he and the sahabah (companions) would engage in three-day fasting. It was narrated that when they arrived in Madinah, the Prophet saw some Jews engaging in fasting in commemoration of the deliverance of the children of Israel from Pharoah’s oppression where they were led to cross the Red Sea by Moses.

Framing Ashura

The Prophet (SAW) made it an important, albeit voluntary fasting on the day of Ashura not only in commemoration of that wonder during the time of Nabi Allah Musa (AS). It was in consonance with equally important meta-historical events dating back to the time of various prophets like, for instance, the Divine forgiveness extended to Nabi Allah Adam (AS) and his wife (Eve) after realizing their pitfalls when they were vanished from Paradise; the forgiveness on the people of Nabi Allah Yunus (AS) or Jonah; the birth of Nabi Ibrahim (AS), and the birth of Nabi Isa (AS).

Obviously, the Ashura commemoration happens every year in the month of Muharram.  This occasion will be the frame of our discourse as we broaden its significance (not only the events we mentioned), but we would like to expand to a claim by certain schools about the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (RA) in Karbala, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to also have happened in the day of Ashuraand that the coming of the Mahdi (AS) is also believed to happen in the day of Ashura.  The latter takes a perspective that exists in the realm of alamu l-ghayb or world unseen.

As we had noted previously, there are contrasting perspectives of traditional Social Sciences vis-à-vis areas of knowledge that border on prophesy, end time history, and eschatology. The former is empirically based that pursues rational line of understanding or what in Weberian sociology refers to as verstehen; whereas Islamic thought in particular gives equally important weight to areas of knowledge, which is in the realm of alamu l-ghayb as it in the dimension of belief or aqeedah. There is that dimension therefore in Islamic thought that talks about prophesy or events that have yet to happen in the future. The story about the advent of the Mahdi (AS) is an area or topic discussed quite extensively in Hadith literature, although it is not mentioned in the Holy Qur’an.

Another equally important subject, which is related to discussion on Mahdism, is the view of the Qur’an regarding the Second Coming of Jesus (AS) that says:

And (Jesus) shall be a Sign  (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment). Therefore have no doubt about the (Hour) but follow ye Me: this a straight way (Zukhruf: 61).

Various Ahadith usually connect the advent of the Mahdi (AS) with the Second Coming of Nabi Allah Isa (AS). For obvious reason, traditional Social Sciences do not give much credence to the subject of prophecy given that the former pursues empirically based perspective or ideology with the dominant one known as scientific positivism. This is not to mention that Social Sciences simply developed, as we mentioned previously, close to around two hundred years ago. Whereas the subject of prophesy in Islamic thought is older and richer both in the Holy Qur’an and the Hadith.

Prophesy

A case in point is that during the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), at least 16 years before he passed away, Suratu l-rum was revealed particularly the earlier verses reminding the early Muslim community about the defeat of the Roman Empire particularly the Byzantine suzerains in Palestine and Syria including the victory of the early Muslims in the Battle of Badr. The Qur’an says:

ALM. The Roman Empire has been defeated in a land close by; but they (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious – within a few years. With God is the Decision, in the Past and in the Future: on that Day shall the Believers rejoice – with the help of God. He helps whom He will, and He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful (Rum: 1-5).

The Qur’an refers to the conquest of Jerusalem in particular under the hands of the Persians as she was previously under the Roman Empire. It can be said thus that the Qur’an is both a book of history and a book of prophesy. This is to not to mention that there are many eschatologies or views about the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter therein. Hadith literature provides or supplements certain parts of prophecy, which are not highlighted in the Qur’an like the advent of the Mahdi (AS). In this connection, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) has also a number of prophesies, wherein famous of which is his prophesy on the conquest of Constantinople. A Hadith reads:

“Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will her leader be; and what a wonderful army will that army be.”

Some ulama (religious scholars) of Hadith view the above-mentioned prophetic saying to refer to the conquest of Istanbul by Muhammad Fateh in 1453. But other ulama speak of the conquest of Istanbul in end time history. It means it is part of series of events that will yet to unfold together with prophesy about the Second Coming of Jesus (AS), the advent of the Mahdi (AS) including the rise of so-called Black Flag Bearers from Khurasan that will enter Kufa now part of Iraq and will, in turn, declare allegiance to the Mahdi (AS) who will appear in Makkah.

Narratives of this sort that are yet to unfold are generally accepted in various works of Hadith among Sunni scholars like Ibn Maja, Ahmad, Mustadrak Al-Hakim, Ibn Kathir, Ibn Hibban, Nuayn, Abu Dawud, Al-Dhahabi, Muslim, and few others. What is significant in this view is that, all the events mentioned therein will happen on the day of Ashura particularly with the advent of the Mahdi (AS).

One source, many stories

As practitioners of Social Sciences, we previously mentioned that we are actually caught in a dilemma how far we advance our discourse on this dimension since it is yet to happen as it is in the domain ofalamu l-ghayb (world unseen). This is not to mention the fact that current events mostly in the Middle East seem to provide signs of their realization. As we talk now, Jerusalem particularly the Masjidi l-aqsa is currently under siege. Muslim worshippers are restricted to enter the Mosque. Since 1948, fundamentalist Jews would like to take control of the Dome of the Rock which is where the Masjidi l-aqsa is located. It is part accordingly of their plan to build the Third Temple. In the book of Grant Jeffrey, “The New Temple and the Second Coming,” it reads:

“Preparations to rebuild the Temple have progressed in several fronts, with plans already in place that go into far detail than most people are aware of. The Temple project is yet another major prophetic sign post on the time line leading to the final conflict of the battle of Armageddon and the establishment of the Kingdom of God. No less a prophet than Jesus Christ made it clear that the generation that witnessed the return of the Jews to the Promised Land would live to see him return to earth. The modern State of Israel was born in 1948, which means that you and I are part of the last days generation (see Matthew 24: 32-34). However, the Temple must once again occupy its place on the Temple Mount before the major prophesied events of the last day can take place (p. 4).

Meantime, with the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) particularly with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declaring the establishment of a Caliphate, his name must have been added into the list of general understanding in the West particularly what the Bible refers to as the “Anti-Christ” or the “Beast.” The concept “Beast” and “Anti-Christ” is among the terms in the Book of Revelation of the Bible together with such end time Biblical terminologies like Apocalypse, Armageddon, and Second Coming of Jesus, and many others.

In the book of Jonathan Hearst, “A History of the End of the World,” it reveals that of around 17 personalities considered to be Anti-Christ, seven of them are identified with Islam, namely: Prophet Muhammad (SAW); Salahuddin al-Ayyubi; The Ottoman Sultan that knocked the gate of Vienna; Anwar Sadat; Imam Khomenei; Saddam Hussein; and Osama Bin Laden. With al-Baghdadi declaring himself as a Caliph, then he must have been included by today mostly fundamentalist Christians as one of those considered as “Anti-Christ;” whereas Western leaders considered as Anti-Christ start with Napoleon Bonaparte; Martin Luther; Lenin; Stalin; Hitler; Mussolini; Roosevelt; Kennedy; Moshe Dayan; and, Henry Kissinger. Quite recently, social media raised the name of Barack Obama as another “Anti-Christ.”

What are we trying to imply? Even if the subject of prophesy and end time perspective of history have been generally frowned upon in Social Sciences, yet their perspectives are so enduring such that major events including major personalities are made to fit by their proponents into the discourse of end time history and various perspectives about the Armageddon, the Apocalypse, and so on and so forth. This shows that the three great religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – despite the fact that their teachings are deeply rooted in the same source like the teachings of prophets and their revelations, it is undeniable that in the course of time, there develops in their narratives varying versions of prophesy, including end time claims and eschatology.

This carries a far-reaching implication: how do we develop optimism as prophesy of this sort grips us in fear? What is the trend of Social Sciences on this view? How do we handle the seeming replaying of prophesy in real-time events in the Middle East today?

Inglorious end

It should not surprise us that there is a trend in Social Sciences that complements views in prophecy and end time history. Perhaps we can allot some time in appraising the recent work of Noam Chomsky, a renowned linguist and critic of US foreign policy. He has followed the development in the Middle East and other parts of the world for the past fifty years. In his recent piece entitled, “The End of History?” Chomsky writes:

“It is not pleasant to contemplate that thoughts that must be passing through the Owl of Minerva as the dusk falls and she undertakes the task of interpreting the era of human civilization, which may now be approaching its inglorious end.”

It is vintage Chomsky speaking. He is a scientific person with highly scientific mind. He is the only living linguist who courageously and consistently ventures in various fields of sciences and philosophy including complex issues of US foreign policy in the Middle East and many parts of the world. His reading is that modern civilization is now approaching with what he refers to as “inglorious end.” It is due according to him with the fact that –

“the era opened almost 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent stretching from the lands of the Tigris and Euphrates through Phoenicia on the eastern coast of Mediterranean to the Nile Valley, and from there to Greece and beyond. What is happening in this region provides painful lessons on the depths to which species can descend.”      

Chomsky specifies the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 including the current quagmire in Syria and the rise of the ISIS. In separate work, he refers to the rise of ISIS as the result of US sledgehammer in Iraq during the reign of George Bush I and II.  These major events are happening in the place where civilization started and it is being fueled with the involvement of big powers like the United States whose interest is to entrench global hegemony in the region and other parts of the world. While this is going on according to Chomsky, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) came up with a finding recently of “increasing greenhouse emission risks “severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystem.” In Chomsky’s earlier work, “Hegemony and Survival,” it points out:

“The species has surely developed the capacity to do just that, and a hypothetical extraterrestrial observer might well conclude that humans have demonstrated that capacity throughout their history, dramatically in the past few hundred years, with an assault on the environment that sustains life, on the diversity of more complex organizations, and with cold and calculated savagery, on each other as well (p. 2).”

What Chomsky is saying is that the world’s “inglorious end” would be defined by the fact that the current source of global malaise has gone back to the place where civilization has started with climate change and global warming remaining unaddressed amid its increasing and worsening impact. In “Hegemony and Survival,” Chomsky stressed his point with the militarization of space and the proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in many parts of the world. It is in pursuit accordingly of US National Security Strategy in 2002, a strategic blueprint generally known in strategic intelligence lingo as “full spectrum dominance” – a global vision where US power is unilaterally projected with no other powers allowed to emerge let alone challenge.

Chomsky, as a scientist, identifies different causes of end time history distinct obviously with those in Semitic religious prophesies. This means that while both fields of knowledge operate in varying paradigms – one in empiricism and scientific positivism while the other in the domain of alamu l-ghayb– they both reveal similar apocalyptic ends. This, we said, is the burden of modern man: how to keep ourselves afloat amid overwhelming pressure of world events that are far remove from our vision of beautiful life in the future that we all hope to attain. The Owl of Minerva is, indeed, not alone in his pensive contemplation.

The difference is that, at least in the Muslim world, the views on prophesy including such tradition likeAshura is welcomed with enthusiasm like engaging in fasting. Yet, if all events in end time history are inevitable to happen, then man could do nothing to stop them. We are not in the position to state how fasting can avert a global Armageddon. What is true is that, fasting is a common practice of Prophets and waliyullah (saints) when faced with momentous events.

Global consciousness and Qur’an’s guarantee

In Social Sciences, there is an idea that human intervention must be made inevitable, too, so that those events like global warming, militarization of space and the spread of nuclear weapons could be averted. This means intensifying pressures on big powers to reduce their propensity to power, to domination, and to violence. Chomsky identifies a glaring dilemma of the United States whose survival is dependent on its hegemony. And if it pushes hard and becomes stronger, no less than the survival of civilization (not only small continents, regions, or countries) but the whole world is put in serious danger. Hence, human intervention across the world could come with the formation of global consciousness with people from different walks of life calling for the reduction of WMD and nuclear armaments, and seriousness in addressing global warming and climate change, and so on.

Another difference is, whereas as we said Muslims welcome the Ashura through fasting; but a country like Israel/Palestine is embroiled in controlling a piece of land whose effect tears up the Middle East even realizing many of the prophesies. In this regard, Kirsch suggested that there is a need to stop what he refers to as “secret things” (e.g., “to do God’s work of revenge and to hasten end times). Rather, there is a need to “call on us to answer the urgent needs of the hungry and homeless, the prisoner and the patient, all in the here and now.” What Kirsch is saying is mankind must intensify their solidarity and brotherhood and to help one another than become party in realizing end time prophesies.

Incidentally, when we read Suratu l-zukhruf regarding the coming of Jesus (AS), we’ll find in subsequent verses certain behavior or certain ways into which believers are being encouraged to do. The Qur’an reads:

“Do they only wait for the Hour – that it should come on them all of a sudden, while they perceive not? (66)”

The Qur’an continues:

“Friends on that Day will be foes, one to another – except the Righteous (67).”

Then it reads further:

“My devotees! No fear shall be on that Day nor shall ye grieve, – Being those who have believed in Our Signs and bowed (their wills to Ours) in Islam (68-69).”        

This is the guarantee the Qur’an so provides that soothes our hearts where we can base our optimism upon as we are faced with events that seem to reflect end time history. The Ashura would give us that opportunity to be able to hold on to that guarantee so that we won’t waver and be gripped wantonly with fear. We mention this to allow us to shape a broader perspective of Ashura and its ritual. We have to reflect and to have more insight so that we broaden our understanding of our society and the world. Through this, we enliven our optimism with Qur’an’s guarantee of hope.

    (Rev 7:2) And I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the mark of the living God: and he said with a great voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to do damage to the earth and the sea,
    (Rev 7:3) Do no damage to the earth, or the sea, or the trees, till we have put a mark on the servants of our God.
    (Rev 7:4) And there came to my ears the number of those who had the mark on their brows, a hundred and forty-four thousand, who were marked out of every tribe of the people of Israel.
    (Rev 7:5) Of the tribe of Judah were marked twelve thousand: of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand: of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand:

    (Rev 7:9) After these things I saw a great army of people more than might be numbered, out of every nation and of all tribes and peoples and languages, taking their places before the high seat and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, and with branches in their hands,
    (Rev 7:10) Saying with a loud voice, Salvation to our God who is seated on the high seat, and to the Lamb.
    (Rev 7:11) And all the angels were round about the high seat, and about the rulers and the four beasts; and they went down on their faces before the high seat, and gave worship to God, saying,
    (Rev 7:12) So be it. Let blessing and glory and wisdom and praise and honour and power and strength be given to our God for ever and ever. So be it.
    (Rev 7:13) And one of the rulers made answer, saying to me, These who have on white robes, who are they, and where did they come from?
    (Rev 7:14) And I said to him, My lord, you have knowledge. And he said to me, These are they who came through the great testing, and their robes have been washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb.
    (Rev 7:15) This is why they are before the high seat of God; and they are his servants day and night in his house: and he who is seated on the high seat will be a tent over them.
    (Rev 7:16) They will never be in need of food or drink: and they will never again be troubled by the burning heat of the sun:
    (Rev 7:17) For the Lamb who is on the high seat will be their keeper and their guide to fountains of living water: and God will make glad their eyes for ever.
    (Rev 6:11) And there was given to every one a white robe, and they were ordered to take their rest for a little time, till the number was complete of the other servants, their brothers, who would be put to death, even as they had been.
    (Rev 6:12) And I saw when the sixth stamp was undone, and there was a great earth-shock; and the sun became black as haircloth, and all the moon became as blood;
    (Rev 6:13) And the stars of heaven were falling to the earth, like green fruit from a tree before the force of a great wind.
    (Rev 6:14) And the heaven was taken away like the roll of a book when it is rolled up; and all the mountains and islands were moved out of their places.
    (Rev 6:15) And the kings of the earth, and the rulers, and the chief captains, and the men of wealth, and the strong, and every servant and free man, took cover in the holes and the rocks of the mountains;
    (Rev 6:16) And they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Come down on us, covering us from the face of him who is seated on the high seat, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
    (Rev 6:17) For the great day of their wrath is come, and who may keep his place?
    (Rev 8:1) And when the seventh stamp was undone there was quiet in heaven for about half an hour.
    (Rev 8:2) And I saw the seven angels who had their place before God; and seven horns were given to them.
    (Rev 8:3) And another angel came and took his place at the altar, having a gold vessel for burning perfume; and there was given to him much perfume, so that he might put it with the prayers of all the saints on the gold altar which was before the high seat.
    (Rev 8:4) And the smoke of the perfume, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.
    (Rev 8:5) And the angel took the vessel; and he made it full of the fire of the altar, and sent it down on the earth: and there came thunders and voices and flames and a shaking of the earth.
    (Rev 8:6) And the seven angels who had the seven horns made ready for sounding them.
    (Rev 8:7) And at the sounding of the first, a rain of ice and fire, mixed with blood, was sent on the earth: and a third part of the earth, and of the trees, and all green grass was burned up.
    (Rev 8:8) And at the sounding of the second angel, it was as if a great mountain burning with fire was sent into the sea: and a third part of the sea became blood,
    (Rev 8:9) And destruction came on a third part of the living things which were in the sea, and on a third part of the ships.
    (Rev 8:10) And at the sounding of the third angel, there went down from heaven a great star, burning like a flame, and it came on a third part of the rivers, and on the fountains of water.
    (Rev 8:11) And the name of the star is Wormwood: and a third part of the waters became bitter; and a number of men came to their end because of the waters, for they were made bitter.
    (Rev 8:12) And at the sounding of the fourth angel, a third part of the sun, and of the moon, and of the stars was made dark, so that there was no light for a third part of the day and of the night.
    (Rev 8:13) And there came to my ears the cry of an eagle in flight in the middle of heaven, saying with a great voice, Trouble, trouble, trouble, to all on the earth, because of the other voices of the horns of the three angels, whose sounding is still to come.

  2. (Rev 9:1) And at the sounding of the fifth angel I saw a star falling from heaven to the earth: and there was given to him the key of the great deep.
    (Rev 9:2) And he made the great deep open and a smoke went up from it, like the smoke of a great oven; and the sun and the air were made dark because of the smoke.
    (Rev 9:3) And from the smoke locusts came out on the earth; and power was given them, like the power of scorpions.
    (Rev 9:4) And they were ordered to do no damage to the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only to such men as have not the mark of God on their brows.
    (Rev 9:5) And orders were given them not to put them to death, but to give them great pain for five months: and their pain was as the pain from the wound of a scorpion.
    (Rev 9:6) And in those days men will be hoping for death, and it will not come to them; and they will have a great desire for death, and death will go in flight from them.
    (Rev 9:7) And the forms of the locusts were like horses made ready for war; and on their heads they had crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
    (Rev 9:8) And they had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
    (Rev 9:9) And they had breastplates like iron, and the sound of their wings was as the sound of carriages, like an army of horses rushing to the fight.
    (Rev 9:10) And they have pointed tails like scorpions; and in their tails is their power to give men wounds for five months.
    (Rev 9:11) They have over them as king the angel of the great deep: his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek language Apollyon.
    (Rev 9:12) The first Trouble is past: see, there are still two Troubles to come.
    (Rev 9:13) And at the sounding of the sixth angel a voice came to my ears from the horns of the gold altar which is before God,
    (Rev 9:14) Saying to the sixth angel who had the horn, Make free the four angels who are chained at the great river Euphrates.
    (Rev 9:15) And the four angels were made free, who were ready for the hour and day and month and year, that they might put to death a third part of men.
    (Rev 9:16) And the number of the armies of the horsemen was twice ten thousand times ten thousand: the number of them came to my ears.
    (Rev 9:17) And so I saw the horses in the vision, and those who were seated on them, having breastplates of fire and glass and of burning stone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and a smell of burning.
    (Rev 9:18) By these evils a third part of men was put to death, by the fire, and the smoke, and the burning smell which came out of their mouths.
    (Rev 9:19) For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails: because their tails are like snakes, and have heads, and with them they give wounds.
    (Rev 9:20) And the rest of the people, who were not put to death by these evils, were not turned from the works of their hands, but went on giving worship to evil spirits, and images of gold and silver and brass and stone and wood which have no power of seeing or hearing or walking:
    (Rev 9:21) And they had no regret for putting men to death, or for their use of secret arts, or for the evil desires of the flesh, or for taking the property of others.
    (Rev 10:1) And I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and an arch of coloured light was round his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire;
    (Rev 10:2) And he had in his hand a little open book: and he put his right foot on the sea, and his left on the earth;
    (Rev 10:3) And he gave a loud cry, like the angry voice of a lion: and at his cry the voices of the seven thunders were sounding.
    (Rev 10:4) And when the seven thunders had given out their voices, I was about to put their words down: and a voice from heaven came to my ears, saying, Keep secret the things which the seven thunders said, and do not put them in writing.
    (Rev 10:5) And the angel which I saw taking his position on the sea and on the earth, put up his right hand to heaven,
    (Rev 10:6) And took his oath by him who is living for ever and ever, who made the heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that there would be no more waiting:
    (Rev 10:7) But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when the sound of his horn is about to come, then will the secret of God be complete, of which he gave the good news to his servants the prophets.
    (Rev 10:8) And the voice came to me again from heaven, saying, Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who has his place on the sea and on the earth.
    (Rev 10:9) And I went to the angel, and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me: Put it in your mouth; and it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.
    (Rev 10:10) And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and did as he said; and it was sweet as honey in my mouth: and when I had taken it, my stomach was made bitter.
    (Rev 10:11) And they said to me, You are to give word again of what is coming in the future to the peoples and nations and languages and kings.

  3. (Rev 21:7) He who overcomes will have these things for his heritage; and I will be his God, and he will be my son.
    (Rev 21:8) But those who are full of fear and without faith, the unclean and takers of life, those who do the sins of the flesh, and those who make use of evil powers or who give worship to images, and all those who are false, will have their part in the sea of ever-burning fire which is the second death.

    (Rev 22:1) Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal. It was flowing from the throne of God and the lamb.
    (Rev 22:2) Between the street of the city and the river there was the tree of life visible from both sides. It produced twelve kinds of fruit, each month having its own fruit. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
    (Rev 22:3) There will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and the lamb will be in the city. His servants will worship him
    (Rev 22:4) and see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
    (Rev 22:5) There will be no more night, and they will not need any light from lamps or the sun because the Lord God will shine on them. They will rule forever and ever.
    (Rev 22:6) He said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord God of the spirits and of the prophets has sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon.”
    (Rev 22:7) “See! I am coming soon! How blessed is the person who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book!”
    (Rev 22:8) I, John, heard and saw these things. When I had heard and seen them, I bowed down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing me these things.
    (Rev 22:9) But he told me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you, your brothers the prophets, and those who keep the words in this book. Worship God!”
    (Rev 22:10) Then he said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book, because the time is near.
    (Rev 22:11) Let the one who does what is evil continue to do evil, and let the filthy person continue to be filthy, and the righteous person continue to do what is right, and the holy person continue to be holy.”
    (Rev 22:12) “See! I am coming soon! My reward is with me to repay everyone according to his work.
    (Rev 22:13) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
    (Rev 22:14) How blessed are those who wash their robes so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city!
    (Rev 22:15) Outside are dogs, sorcerers, immoral people, murderers, idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
    (Rev 22:16) “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give this testimony to you for the churches. I am the root and descendent of David, the bright morning star.”
    (Rev 22:17) The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let everyone who hears this say, “Come!” Let everyone who is thirsty come! Let anyone who wants the water of life take it as a gift!
    (Rev 22:18) I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy in this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will strike him with the plagues that are written in this book.
    (Rev 22:19) If anyone takes away any words from the book of this prophecy, God will take away his portion of the tree of life and the holy city that are described in this book.
    (Rev 22:20) The one who is testifying to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
    (Rev 22:21) May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.

    Section I. Chapters I-XXXVI
    INTRODUCTION
    [Chapter 1]
    1 The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the
    elect and righteous, who will be 2 living in the day of tribulation, when all
    the wicked and godless are to be removed. And he took up his parable and said
    -Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the
    Holy One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from them I heard
    everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation,
    but for a remote one which is 3 for to come. Concerning the elect I said, and
    took up my parable concerning them:
    The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling,
    4 And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai,
    [And appear from His camp]
    And appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.
    5 And all shall be smitten with fear
    And the Watchers shall quake,
    And great fear and trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth.
    6 And the high mountains shall be shaken,
    And the high hills shall be made low,
    And shall melt like wax before the flame
    7 And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder,
    And all that is upon the earth shall perish,
    And there shall be a judgement upon all (men).
    8 But with the righteous He will make peace.
    And will protect the elect,
    And mercy shall be upon them.
    And they shall all belong to God,
    And they shall be prospered,
    And they shall all be blessed.
    And He will help them all,
    And light shall appear unto them,
    And He will make peace with them’.
    9 And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones
    To execute judgement upon all,
    And to destroy all the ungodly:
    And to convict all flesh
    Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed,
    And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.
    [Chapter 2]
    1 Observe ye everything that takes place in the heaven, how they
    do not change their orbits, and the luminaries which are in the heaven, how
    they all rise and set in order each in its season, and 2 transgress not against
    their appointed order. Behold ye the earth, and give heed to the things which
    take place upon it from first to last, how steadfast they are, how none of the
    things upon earth 3 change, but all the works of God appear to you. Behold the
    summer and the winter, how the whole earth is filled with water, and clouds and
    dew and rain lie upon it.
    [Chapter 3]
    Observe and see how (in the winter) all the trees seem as though
    they had withered and shed all their leaves, except fourteen trees, which do
    not lose their foliage but retain the old foliage from two to three years till
    the new comes.
    [Chapter 4]
    And again, observe ye the days of summer how the sun is above the
    earth over against it. And you seek shade and shelter by reason of the heat of
    the sun, and the earth also burns with growing heat, and so you cannot tread on
    the earth, or on a rock by reason of its heat.
    [Chapter 5]
    1 Observe ye how the trees cover themselves with green leaves and
    bear fruit: wherefore give ye heed and know with regard to all His works, and
    recognize how He that liveth for ever hath made them so. 2 And all His works go
    on thus from year to year for ever, and all the tasks which they accomplish for
    Him, and their tasks change not, but according as God hath ordained so is it
    done. 3 And behold how the sea and the rivers in like manner accomplish and
    change not their tasks from His commandments’.
    4 But ye -ye have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of
    the Lord,
    But ye have turned away and spoken proud and hard words
    With your impure mouths against His greatness.
    Oh, ye hard-hearted, ye shall find no peace.
    5 Therefore shall ye execrate your days,
    And the years of your life shall perish,
    And the years of your destruction shall be multiplied in eternal execration,
    And ye shall find no mercy.
    6a In those days ye shall make your names an eternal execration
    unto all the righteous,
    b And by you shall all who curse, curse,
    And all the sinners and godless shall imprecate by you,
    7c And for you the godless there shall be a curse.
    6d And all the righteous shall rejoice,
    e And there shall be forgiveness of sins,
    f And every mercy and peace and forbearance:
    g There shall be salvation unto them, a goodly light.
    I And for all of you sinners there shall be no salvation,
    j But on you all shall abide a curse.
    7a But for the elect there shall be light and joy and peace,
    b And they shall inherit the earth.
    8 And then there shall be bestowed upon the elect wisdom,
    And they shall all live and never again sin,
    Either through ungodliness or through pride:
    But they who are wise shall be humble.
    9 And they shall not again transgress,
    Nor shall they sin all the days of their life,
    Nor shall they die of (the divine) anger or wrath,
    But they shall complete the number of the days of their life.
    And their lives shall be increased in peace,
    And the years of their joy shall be multiplied,
    In eternal gladness and peace,
    All the days of their life.

  5. [Chapter 6]

    1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that
    in those days were born unto 2 them beautiful and comely daughters. And the
    angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one
    another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men 3 and
    beget us children.’ And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: ‘I fear
    ye will not 4 indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the
    penalty of a great sin.’ And they all answered him and said: ‘Let us all swear
    an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations 5 not to abandon this
    plan but to do this thing.’ Then sware they all together and bound themselves 6
    by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended
    in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount
    Hermon, because they had sworn 7 and bound themselves by mutual imprecations
    upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba,
    Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, 8 Asael, Armaros,
    Batarel, Ananel, Zaq1el, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are
    their chiefs of tens.

    [Chapter 7]

    1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives,
    and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile
    themselves with them, and they taught them charms 2 and enchantments, and the
    cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they 3 became
    pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who
    consumed 4 all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain
    them, the giants turned against 5 them and devoured mankind. And they began to
    sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and 6 fish, and to devour one
    another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against
    the lawless ones.

    [Chapter 8]

    1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields,
    and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of
    working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the
    beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all 2 colouring
    tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication,
    and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza
    taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, ‘Armaros the resolving of enchantments,
    Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge
    of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun,
    and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their
    cry went up to heaven . . .

    [Chapter 9]

    1 And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from
    heaven and saw much blood being 2 shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness
    being wrought upon the earth. And they said one to another: ‘The earth made
    without inhabitant cries the voice of their cryingst up to the gates of heaven.
    3 And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men make their suit,
    saying, “Bring our cause 4 before the Most High.”‘ And they said to
    the Lord of the ages: ‘Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings, and God of
    the ages, the throne of Thy glory (standeth) unto all the generations of the 5
    ages, and Thy name holy and glorious and blessed unto all the ages! Thou hast
    made all things, and power over all things hast Thou: and all things are naked
    and open in Thy sight, and Thou seest all 6 things, and nothing can hide itself
    from Thee. Thou seest what Azazel hath done, who hath taught all
    unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were
    (preserved) in heaven, which 7 men were striving to learn: And Semjaza, to whom
    Thou hast given authority to bear rule over his associates. And they have gone
    to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the 9 women, and
    have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women
    have 10 borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood
    and unrighteousness. And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are
    crying and making their suit to the gates of heaven, and their lamentations
    have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are 11
    wrought on the earth. And Thou knowest all things before they come to pass, and
    Thou seest these things and Thou dost suffer them, and Thou dost not say to us
    what we are to do to them in regard to these.’

    [Chapter 10]

    1 Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent
    Uriel to the son of Lamech, 2 and said to him: ‘Go to Noah and tell him in my
    name “Hide thyself!” and reveal to him the end that is approaching:
    that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come 3 upon
    the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. And now instruct him that
    he may escape 4 and his seed may be preserved for all the generations of the
    world.’ And again the Lord said to Raphael: ‘Bind Azazel hand and foot, and
    cast him into the darkness: and make an opening 5 in the desert, which is in
    Dudael, and cast him therein. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and
    cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face
    that he may 6,7 not see light. And on the day of the great judgement he shall
    be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and
    proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all
    the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the 8
    Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. And the whole earth has
    been corrupted 9 through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe
    all sin.’ And to Gabriel said the Lord: ‘Proceed against the bastards and the
    reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children
    of fornication and] the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause
    them to go forth]: send them one against the other that they may destroy each
    other in 10 battle: for length of days shall they not have. And no request that
    they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on
    their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and 11 that each one of
    them will live five hundred years.’ And the Lord said unto Michael: ‘Go, bind
    Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have
    defiled themselves 12 with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons
    have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved
    ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till
    the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that
    is 13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to
    the abyss of fire: and 14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be
    confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from
    thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all 15 generations. And
    destroy all the spirits of the reprobate and the children of the Watchers,
    because 16 they have wronged mankind. Destroy all wrong from the face of the
    earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of
    righteousness and truth appear: and it shall prove a blessing; the works of
    righteousness and truth’ shall be planted in truth and joy for evermore.

    17 And then shall all the righteous escape,

    And shall live till they beget thousands of children,

    And all the days of their youth and their old age

    Shall they complete in peace.

    18 And then shall the whole earth be tilled in righteousness, and
    shall all be planted with trees and 19 be full of blessing. And all desirable
    trees shall be planted on it, and they shall plant vines on it: and the vine
    which they plant thereon shall yield wine in abundance, and as for all the seed
    which is sown thereon each measure (of it) shall bear a thousand, and each
    measure of olives shall yield 20 ten presses of oil. And cleanse thou the earth
    from all oppression, and from all unrighteousness, and from all sin, and from
    all godlessness: and all the uncleanness that is wrought upon the earth 21
    destroy from off the earth. And all the children of men shall become righteous,
    and all nations 22 shall offer adoration and shall praise Me, and all shall
    worship Me. And the earth shall be cleansed from all defilement, and from all
    sin, and from all punishment, and from all torment, and I will never again send
    (them) upon it from generation to generation and for ever.

    [Chapter 11]

    1 And in those days I will open the store chambers of blessing
    which are in the heaven, so as to send 2 them down upon the earth over the work
    and labour of the children of men. And truth and peace shall be associated
    together throughout all the days of the world and throughout all the
    generations of men.’

    [Chapter 12]

    1 Before these things Enoch was hidden, and no one of the children
    of men knew where he was 2 hidden, and where he abode, and what had become of
    him. And his activities had to do with the Watchers, and his days were with the
    holy ones. 3 And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the
    ages, and lo! the Watchers 4 called me -Enoch the scribe- and said to me:
    ‘Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven
    who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled
    themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have
    taken unto themselves 5 wives: “Ye have wrought great destruction on the
    earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness 6 of sin: and inasmuch as
    they delight themselves in their children, The murder of their beloved ones
    shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament,
    and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not
    attain.”‘

    [Chapter 13]

    1 And Enoch went and said: ‘Azazel, thou shalt have no peace: a
    severe sentence has gone forth 2 against thee to put thee in bonds: And thou
    shalt not have toleration nor request granted to thee, because of the
    unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of
    godlessness 3 and unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men.’ Then I
    went and spoke to them all 4 together, and they were all afraid, and fear and
    trembling seized them. And they besought me to draw up a petition for them that
    they might find forgiveness, and to read their petition in the presence 5 of
    the Lord of heaven. For from thenceforward they could not speak (with Him) nor
    lift up their 6 eyes to heaven for shame of their sins for which they had been
    condemned. Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their
    spirits and their deeds individually and in regard to their 7 requests that
    they should have forgiveness and length. And I went off and sat down at the
    waters of Dan, in the land of Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon: I read
    their petition till I fell 8 asleep. And behold a dream came to me, and visions
    fell down upon me, and I saw visions of chastisement, and a voice came bidding
    (me) I to tell it to the sons of heaven, and reprimand them. 9 And when I awaked,
    I came unto them, and they were all sitting gathered together, weeping in 10
    ‘Abelsjail, which is between Lebanon and Seneser, with their faces covered. And
    I recounted before them all the visions which I had seen in sleep, and I began
    to speak the words of righteousness, and to reprimand the heavenly Watchers.

    [Chapter 14]

    1 The book of the words of righteousness, and of the reprimand of
    the eternal Watchers in accordance 2 with the command of the Holy Great One in
    that vision. I saw in my sleep what I will now say with a tongue of flesh and
    with the breath of my mouth: which the Great One has given to men to 3 converse
    therewith and understand with the heart. As He has created and given to man the
    power of understanding the word of wisdom, so hath He created me also and given
    me the power of reprimanding 4 the Watchers, the children of heaven. I wrote
    out your petition, and in my vision it appeared thus, that your petition will
    not be granted unto you throughout all the days of eternity, and that judgement
    5 has been finally passed upon you: yea (your petition) will not be granted
    unto you. And from henceforth you shall not ascend into heaven unto all
    eternity, and in bonds of the earth the decree 6 has gone forth to bind you for
    all the days of the world. And (that) previously you shall have seen the
    destruction of your beloved sons and ye shall have no pleasure in them, but
    they shall fall before 7 you by the sword. 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 8 written. And the
    vision was shown to me thus: Behold, in the vision clouds invited me and a mist
    summoned me, and the course of the stars and the lightnings sped and hastened
    me, and the winds in 9 the vision caused me to fly and lifted me upward, and
    bore me into heaven. And I went in till I drew nigh to a wall which is built of
    crystals and surrounded by tongues of fire: and it began to affright 10 me. And
    I went into the tongues of fire and drew nigh to a large house which was built
    of crystals: and the walls of the house were like a tesselated floor (made) of
    crystals, and its groundwork was 11 of crystal. Its ceiling was like the path
    of the stars and the lightnings, and between them were 12 fiery cherubim, and
    their heaven was (clear as) water. A flaming fire surrounded the walls, and its
    13 portals blazed with fire. And I entered into that house, and it was hot as
    fire and cold as ice: there 14 were no delights of life therein: fear covered
    me, and trembling got hold upon me. And as I quaked 15 and trembled, I fell
    upon my face. And I beheld a vision, And lo! there was a second house, greater
    16 than the former, and the entire portal stood open before me, and it was built
    of flames of fire. And in every respect it so excelled in splendour and
    magnificence and extent that I cannot describe to 17 you its splendour and its
    extent. And its floor was of fire, and above it were lightnings and the path 18
    of the stars, and its ceiling also was flaming fire. And I looked and saw
    therein a lofty throne: its appearance was as crystal, and the wheels thereof
    as the shining sun, and there was the vision of 19 cherubim. And from
    underneath the throne came streams of flaming fire so that I could not look 20
    thereon. And the Great Glory sat thereon, and His raiment shone more brightly
    than the sun and 21 was whiter than any snow. None of the angels could enter
    and could behold His face by reason 22 of the magnificence and glory and no flesh
    could behold Him. The flaming fire was round about Him, and a great fire stood
    before Him, and none around could draw nigh Him: ten thousand times 23 ten
    thousand (stood) before Him, yet He needed no counselor. And the most holy ones
    who were 24 nigh to Him did not leave by night nor depart from Him. And until
    then I had been prostrate on my face, trembling: and the Lord called me with
    His own mouth, and said to me: ‘ Come hither, 25 Enoch, and hear my word.’ And
    one of the holy ones came to me and waked me, and He made me rise up and
    approach the door: and I bowed my face downwards.

  6. [Chapter 15]

    1 And He answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: ‘Fear
    not, Enoch, thou righteous 2 man and scribe of righteousness: approach hither
    and hear my voice. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to
    intercede for them: “You should intercede” for men, and not men 3 for
    you: Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with
    women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves
    wives, and done like the children 4 of earth, and begotten giants (as your)
    sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have
    defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with
    the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and
    blood as those also do who die 5 and perish. Therefore have I given them wives
    also that they might impregnate them, and beget 6 children by them, that thus
    nothing might be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly 7 spiritual,
    living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. And
    therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of
    the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. 8 And now, the giants, who are
    produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon 9 the
    earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded
    from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is
    their beginning and primal origin; 10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and
    evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven
    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.] 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 12 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.

    [Chapter 16]

    1 From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the
    giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall
    destroy without incurring judgement -thus shall they destroy until the day of
    the consummation, the great judgement in which the age shall be 2 consummated,
    over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.” And
    now as to the watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been
    aforetime in heaven, (say 3 to them): “You have been in heaven, but all
    the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones,
    and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and
    through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.” 4 Say to
    them therefore: ” You have no peace.”‘

    [Chapter 17]

    1 And they took and brought me to a place in which those who were
    there were like flaming fire, 2 and, when they wished, they appeared as men.
    And they brought me to the place of darkness, and to a mountain the point of
    whose summit reached to heaven. And I saw the places of the luminaries and the
    treasuries of the stars and of the thunder and in the uttermost depths, where
    were 4 a fiery bow and arrows and their quiver, and a fiery sword and all the
    lightnings. And they took 5 me to the living waters, and to the fire of the
    west, which receives every setting of the sun. And I came to a river of fire in
    which the fire flows like water and discharges itself into the great sea
    towards 6 the west. I saw the great rivers and came to the great river and to
    the great darkness, and went 7 to the place where no flesh walks. I saw the
    mountains of the darkness of winter and the place 8 whence all the waters of
    the deep flow. I saw the mouths of all the rivers of the earth and the mouth of
    the deep.

    [Chapter 18]

    1 I saw the treasuries of all the winds: I saw how He had
    furnished with them the whole creation 2 and the firm foundations of the earth.
    And I saw the corner-stone of the earth: I saw the four 3 winds which bear [the
    earth and] the firmament of the heaven. And I saw how the winds stretch out the
    vaults of heaven, and have their station between heaven and earth: these are
    the pillars 4 of the heaven. I saw the winds of heaven which turn and bring the
    circumference of the sun and 5 all the stars to their setting. I saw the winds
    on the earth carrying the clouds: I saw the paths 6 of the angels. I saw at the
    end of the earth the firmament of the heaven above. And I proceeded and saw a
    place which burns day and night, where there are seven mountains of magnificent
    stones, 7 three towards the east, and three towards the south. And as for those
    towards the east, was of coloured stone,
    and one of pearl, and one of jacinth, and those towards the south of red stone.
    8 But the middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God, of alabaster,
    and the summit of the 9,10 throne was of sapphire. And I saw a flaming fire.
    And beyond these mountains Is a region the end of the great earth: there the
    heavens were completed. And I saw a deep abyss, with columns of heavenly fire,
    and among them I saw columns of fire fall, which were beyond measure alike
    towards 12 the height and towards the depth. And beyond that abyss I saw a
    place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth
    beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no 13 birds, but it was a waste and
    horrible place. I saw there seven stars like great burning mountains, 14 and to
    me, when I inquired regarding them, The angel said: ‘This place is the end of
    heaven and earth: this has become a prison for the stars and the host of
    heaven. And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed
    the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of 16 their rising, because they
    did not come forth at their appointed times. And He was wroth with them, and
    bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated (even) for ten
    thousand years.’

  7. [Chapter 19]

    1 And Uriel said to me: ‘Here shall stand the angels 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 gods, (here shall they stand,) till the day of the great judgement in
    2 which they shall be judged till they are made an end of. And the women also
    of the angels who 3 went astray shall become sirens.’ And I, Enoch, alone saw
    the vision, the ends of all things: and no man shall see as I have seen.

    [Chapter 20]

    1,2 And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. Uriel,
    one of the holy angels, who is 3 over the world and over Tartarus. Raphael, one
    of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men. 4,5 Raguel, one of the holy
    angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. Michael, one 6 of
    the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over
    chaos. Saraqael, 7 one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin
    in the spirit. Gabriel, one of the holy 8 angels, who is over Paradise and the
    serpents and the Cherubim. Remiel, one of the holy angels, whom God set over
    those who rise.

    [Chapter 21]

    1,2 And I proceeded to where things were chaotic. And I saw there
    something horrible: I saw neither 3 a heaven above nor a firmly founded earth,
    but a place chaotic and horrible. And there I saw 4 seven stars of the heaven
    bound together in it, like great mountains and burning with fire. Then 5 I
    said: ‘For what sin are they bound, and on what account have they been cast in
    hither?’ Then said Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me, and was
    chief over them, and said: ‘Enoch, why 6 dost thou ask, and why art thou eager
    for the truth? These are of the number of the stars of heaven, which have
    transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and are bound here till ten thousand
    years, 7 the time entailed by their sins, are consummated.’ And from thence I
    went to another place, which was still more horrible than the former, and I saw
    a horrible thing: a great fire there which burnt and blazed, and the place was
    cleft as far as the abyss, being full of great descending columns of 8 fire:
    neither its extent or magnitude could I see, nor could I conjecture. Then I
    said: ‘How 9 fearful is the place and how terrible to look upon!’ Then Uriel
    answered me, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me: ‘Enoch,
    why hast thou such fear and affright?’ And 10 I answered: ‘Because of this
    fearful place, and because of the spectacle of the pain.’ And he said unto me:
    ‘This place is the prison of the angels, and here they will be imprisoned for
    ever.’

    [Chapter 22]

    1 And thence I went to another place, and he mountain [and] of
    hard rock. 2 And there was in it four hollow places, deep and wide and very
    smooth. How smooth are the hollow places and deep and dark to look at. 3 Then
    Raphael answered, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me:
    ‘These hollow places have been created for this very purpose, that the spirits
    of the souls of the dead should 4 assemble therein, yea that all the souls of
    the children of men should assemble here. And these places have been made to
    receive them till the day of their judgement and till their appointed period
    [till the period appointed], till the great judgement (comes) upon them.’ I saw
    (the spirit of) a dead man making suit, 5 and his voice went forth to heaven
    and made suit. And I asked Raphael the angel who was 6 with me, and I said unto
    him: ‘This spirit which maketh suit, whose is it, whose voice goeth forth and
    maketh suit to heaven ?’ 7 And he answered me saying: ‘This is the spirit which
    went forth from Abel, whom his brother Cain slew, and he makes his suit against
    him till his seed is destroyed from the face of the earth, and his seed is annihilated
    from amongst the seed of men.’ 8 The I asked regarding it, and regarding all
    the hollow places: ‘Why is one separated from the other?’ 9 And he answered me
    and said unto me: ‘These three have been made that the spirits of the dead
    might be separated. And such a division has been make (for) the spirits of the
    righteous, in which there is the bright spring of 10 water. And such has been
    made for sinners when they die and are buried in the earth and judgement has
    not been executed on them in their 11 lifetime. Here their spirits shall be set
    apart in this great pain till the great day of judgement and punishment and
    torment of those who curse for ever and retribution for their spirits. There 12
    He shall bind them for ever. And such a division has been made for the spirits
    of those who make their suit, who make disclosures concerning their
    destruction, when they were slain in the days 13 of the sinners. Such has been
    made for the spirits of men who were not righteous but sinners, who were
    complete in transgression, and of the transgressors they shall be companions:
    but their spirits shall not be slain in the day of judgement nor shall they be
    raised from thence.’ 14 The I blessed the Lord of glory and said: ‘Blessed be
    my Lord, the Lord of righteousness, who ruleth for ever.’

    [Chapter 23]

    1,2 From thence I went to another place to the west of the ends of
    the earth. And I saw a burning 3 fire which ran without resting, and paused not
    from its course day or night but (ran) regularly. And 4 I asked saying: ‘What
    is this which rests not?’ Then Raguel, one of the holy angels who was with me,
    answered me and said unto me: ‘This course of fire which thou hast seen is the
    fire in the west which persecutes all the luminaries of heaven.’

    [Chapter 24]

    1 And from thence I went to another place of the earth, and he
    showed me a mountain range of 2 fire which burnt day and night. And I went
    beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the
    other, and the stones (thereof) were magnificent and beautiful, magnificent as
    a whole, of glorious 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, no one of which 3 joined with any other. And the seventh mountain
    was in the midst of these, and it excelled them 4 in height, resembling the
    seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne. And amongst them was
    a tree such as I had never yet smelt, 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 for ever: 5 and its fruit is beautiful, and its
    fruit n resembles the dates of a palm. Then I said: ‘How beautiful is this
    tree, and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its blooms very delightful in
    appearance.’ 6 Then answered Michael, one of the holy and honoured angels who
    was with me, and was their leader.

    [Chapter 25]

    1 And he said unto me: ‘Enoch, why dost thou ask me regarding the
    fragrance of the tree, 2 and why dost thou wish to learn the truth?’ Then I
    answered him saying: ‘I wish to 3 know about everything, but especially about
    this tree.’ And he answered saying: ‘This high mountain which thou hast seen,
    whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great
    One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to
    visit 4 the earth with goodness. And as for this fragrant tree no mortal is
    permitted to touch it till the great judgement, when He shall take vengeance on
    all and bring (everything) to its consummation 5 for ever. It shall then be
    given to the righteous and holy. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: it
    shall be transplanted to the holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal
    King.

    6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad,

    And into the holy place shall they enter;

    And its fragrance shall be in their bones,

    And they shall live a long life on earth,

    Such as thy fathers lived:

    And in their days shall no sorrow or plague

    Or torment or calamity touch them.’

    7 Then blessed I the God of Glory, the Eternal King, who hath
    prepared such things for the righteous, and hath created them and promised to
    give to them.

    [Chapter 26]

    1 And I went from thence to the middle of the earth, and I saw a
    blessed place in which there were 2 trees with branches abiding and blooming
    [of a dismembered tree]. And there I saw a holy mountain, 3 and underneath the
    mountain to the east there was a stream and it flowed towards the south. And I
    saw towards the east another mountain higher than this, and between them a deep
    and narrow 4 ravine: in it also ran a stream underneath the mountain. And to
    the west thereof there was another mountain, lower than the former and of small
    elevation, and a ravine deep and dry between them: and another deep and dry
    ravine was at the extremities of the three mountains. And all the ravines were
    deep rand narrow, (being formed) of hard rock, and trees were not planted upon
    6 them. And I marveled at the rocks, and I marveled at the ravine, yea, I
    marveled very much.

  8. [Chapter 27]

    1 Then said I: ‘For what object is this blessed land, which is
    entirely filled with trees, and this 2 accursed valley between?’ Then Uriel,
    one of the holy angels who was with me, answered and said: ‘This accursed
    valley is for those who are accursed for ever: Here shall all the accursed be
    gathered together who utter with their lips against the Lord unseemly words and
    of His glory speak hard things. Here shall they be gathered together, and here
    3 shall be their place of judgement. In the last days there shall be upon them
    the spectacle of righteous judgement in the presence of the righteous for ever:
    here shall the merciful bless the Lord of glory, the Eternal King. 4 In the
    days of judgement over the former, they shall bless Him for the mercy in
    accordance with 5 which He has assigned them (their lot).’ Then I blessed the
    Lord of Glory and set forth His glory and lauded Him gloriously.

    [Chapter 28]

    1 And thence I went towards the east, into the midst of the
    mountain range of the desert, and 2 I saw a wilderness and it was solitary,
    full of trees and plants. And water gushed forth from 3 above. Rushing like a
    copious watercourse [which flowed] towards the north-west it caused clouds and
    dew to ascend on every side.

    [Chapter 29]

    1 And thence I went to another place in the desert, and approached
    to the east of this mountain 2 range. And there I saw aromatic trees exhaling
    the fragrance of frankincense and myrrh, and the trees also were similar to the
    almond tree.

    [Chapter 30]

    1,2 And beyond these, I went afar to the east, and I saw another
    place, a valley (full) of water. And 3 therein there was a tree, the colour (?)
    of fragrant trees such as the mastic. And on the sides of those valleys I saw
    fragrant cinnamon. And beyond these I proceeded to the east.

    [Chapter 31]

    1 And I saw other mountains, and amongst them were groves of
    trees, and there flowed forth from 2 them nectar, which is named sarara and
    galbanum. And beyond these mountains I saw another mountain to the east of the
    ends of the earth, whereon were aloe-trees, and all the trees were full 3 of
    stacte, being like almond-trees. And when one burnt it, it smelt sweeter than
    any fragrant odour.

    [Chapter 32]

    1 And after these fragrant odours, as I looked towards the north
    over the mountains I saw seven mountains full of choice nard and fragrant trees
    and cinnamon and pepper. 2 And thence I went over the summits of all these
    mountains, far towards the east of the earth, and passed above the Erythraean
    sea and went far from it, and passed over the angel Zotiel. And I came to the
    Garden of Righteousness, 3 I and from afar off trees more numerous than I these
    trees and great-two trees there, very great, beautiful, and glorious, and
    magnificent, and the tree of knowledge, whose holy fruit they eat and know
    great wisdom. 4 That tree is in height like the fir, and its leaves are like
    (those of) the Carob tree: and its fruit 5 is like the clusters of the vine,
    very beautiful: and the fragrance of the tree penetrates afar. Then 6 I said:
    ‘How beautiful is the tree, and how attractive is its look!’ Then Raphael the
    holy angel, who was with me, answered me and said: ‘This is the tree of wisdom,
    of which thy father old (in years) and thy aged mother, who were before thee,
    have eaten, and they learnt wisdom and their eyes were opened, and they knew
    that they were naked and they were driven out of the garden.’

    [Chapter 33]

    1 And from thence I went to the ends of the earth and saw there
    great beasts, and each differed from the other; and (I saw) birds also
    differing in appearance and beauty and voice, the one differing from the other.
    And to the east of those beasts I saw the ends of the earth whereon the heaven
    2 rests, and the portals of the heaven open. And I saw how the stars of heaven
    come forth, and 3 I counted the portals out of which they proceed, and wrote
    down all their outlets, of each individual star by itself, according to their
    number and their names, their courses and their positions, and their 4 times
    and their months, as Uriel the holy angel who was with me showed me. He showed
    all things to me and wrote them down for me: also their names he wrote for me,
    and their laws and their companies.

    [Chapter 34]

    1 And from thence I went towards the north to the ends of the
    earth, and there I saw a great and 2 glorious device at the ends of the whole
    earth. And here I saw three portals of heaven open in the heaven: through each
    of them proceed north winds: when they blow there is cold, hail, frost, 3 snow,
    dew, and rain. And out of one portal they blow for good: but when they blow
    through the other two portals, it is with violence and affliction on the earth,
    and they blow with violence.

    [Chapter 35]

    1 And from thence I went towards the west to the ends of the
    earth, and saw there three portals of the heaven open such as I had seen in the
    east, the same number of portals, and the same number of outlets.

    [Chapter 36]

    1 And from thence I went to the south to the ends of the earth,
    and saw there three open portals 2 of the heaven: and thence there come dew,
    rain, and wind. And from thence I went to the east to the ends of the heaven,
    and saw here the three eastern portals of heaven open and small portals 3 above
    them. Through each of these small portals pass the stars of heaven and run
    their course to the west on the path which is shown to them. And as often as I
    saw I blessed always the Lord of Glory, and I continued to bless the Lord of
    Glory who has wrought great and glorious wonders, to show the greatness of His
    work to the angels and to spirits and to men, that they might praise His work
    and all His creation: that they might see the work of His might and praise the
    great work of His hands and bless Him for ever.

  9. The book of Enoch is more 10000 years, the book of Revelation is more 2000years. The TANAKH or the old testament is 5775 years old.But all what was written had fulfilled up to the last letter,not one is amissed. But Quran was re-edited and re-written many times. The Old copy of Quran(written 700 years ago) in the caves of Oman is far from the Quran written today.

  10. Lord Jesus reveals these prophesies;(2000 years ago)

    (Mat 24:1) As Jesus left the temple and was walking away, his disciples came up to him to point out to him the temple buildings.
    (Mat 24:2) But he said to them, “You see all these things, don’t you? Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another that will not be torn down.”
    (Mat 24:3) While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things take place, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
    (Mat 24:4) Jesus answered them, “See to it that no one deceives you.
    (Mat 24:5) For many will come in my name and say, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will deceive many people.
    (Mat 24:6) You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See to it that you are not alarmed. These things must take place, but the end hasn’t come yet.
    (Mat 24:7) For nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
    (Mat 24:8) But all these things are only the beginning of the birth pains.”
    (Mat 24:9) “Then they will hand you over to suffering and will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations because of my name.
    (Mat 24:10) Then many people will fall by the way and will betray one another and hate one another.
    (Mat 24:11) Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people,
    (Mat 24:12) and because lawlessness will increase, the love of many people will grow cold.
    (Mat 24:13) But the person who endures to the end will be saved.
    (Mat 24:14) And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
    (Mat 24:15) “So when you see the destructive desecration, mentioned by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place (let the reader take note),
    (Mat 24:16) then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.
    (Mat 24:17) The person who is on the housetop must not come down to get what is in his house,
    (Mat 24:18) and the person who is in the field must not turn back to get his coat.
    (Mat 24:19) “How terrible it will be for women who are pregnant or who are nursing babies in those days!
    (Mat 24:20) Pray that it may not be in winter or on a Sabbath when you flee.
    (Mat 24:21) For at that time there will be great suffering, the kind that has not happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly will never happen again.
    (Mat 24:22) If those days had not been limited, no life would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be limited.
    (Mat 24:23) “At that time, if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’, don’t believe it.
    (Mat 24:24) For false christs and false prophets will appear and display great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
    (Mat 24:25) Remember, I have told you this beforehand.
    (Mat 24:26) So if they say to you, ‘Look! He’s in the wilderness,’ don’t go out looking for him. And if they say, ‘Look! He’s in the storeroom,’ don’t believe it.
    (Mat 24:27) For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
    (Mat 24:28) Wherever there’s a body, there the vultures will gather.”
    (Mat 24:29) “Immediately after the suffering of those days, ‘The sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of heaven will be shaken loose.’
    (Mat 24:30) Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn when they see ‘the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven’ with power and great glory.
    (Mat 24:31) He will send out his angels with a loud trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to another.”
    (Mat 24:32) “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches become tender and it produces leaves, you know that summer is near.
    (Mat 24:33) In the same way, when you see all these things, you will know that he is near, right at the door.
    (Mat 24:34) Truly I tell you, this generation will not disappear until these things happen.
    (Mat 24:35) Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.”
    (Mat 24:36) “No one knows when that day or hour will come-not the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
    (Mat 24:37) For just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be when the Son of Man comes.
    (Mat 24:38) In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage right up to the day when Noah went into the ark.
    (Mat 24:39) They were unaware of what was happening until the flood came and swept all of them away. That’s how it will be when the Son of Man comes.
    (Mat 24:40) At that time two people will be in the field. One will be taken, and the other will be left behind.
    (Mat 24:41) Two women will be grinding grain at the mill. One will be taken, and the other will be left behind.
    (Mat 24:42) “So keep on watching, because you don’t know on what day your Lord is coming.
    (Mat 24:43) But be sure of this: if the owner of the house had known at what watch of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not allowed his house to be broken into.
    (Mat 24:44) So you, too, must be ready, because at an hour you are not expecting him the Son of Man will come.”
    (Mat 24:45) “Who, then, is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has put in charge of his household to give the others their food at the right time?
    (Mat 24:46) How blessed is that servant whom his master finds doing this when he comes!
    (Mat 24:47) Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his property.
    (Mat 24:48) “But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master has been delayed,’
    (Mat 24:49) and begins to beat his fellow servants and eat and drink with the drunks,
    (Mat 24:50) the master of that servant will come on a day when he doesn’t expect him and at an hour that he doesn’t know.
    (Mat 24:51) Then his master will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

  11. (Mat 25:31) “When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.
    (Mat 25:32) All the nations will be assembled in front of him, and he will separate them from each other as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
    (Mat 25:33) He will put the sheep on his right but the goats on his left.
    (Mat 25:34) “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
    (Mat 25:35) For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.
    (Mat 25:36) I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
    (Mat 25:37) “Then the righteous will say to him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you something to eat, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
    (Mat 25:38) When did we see you as a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
    (Mat 25:39) When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
    (Mat 25:40) The king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, in that you did it for one of the least important of these my brothers, you did it for me.’
    (Mat 25:41) “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Get away from me, you who are accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels!
    (Mat 25:42) For I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink.
    (Mat 25:43) I was a stranger, and you didn’t welcome me. I was naked, and you didn’t clothe me. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’
    (Mat 25:44) “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or as a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn’t help you?’
    (Mat 25:45) Then he will say to them, ‘Truly I tell you, in that you did not do it for one of the least important of these, you did not do it for me.’
    (Mat 25:46) These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”

  12. “Do not put your trust” in the false prophet Mohammed who is dead, non existent; “his spirit has gone out and his thoughts have perished”. Pslam 146;3-4;
    He is subjected to awaiting a “resurrection of judgement”, (Revelation 20;11-15) for the untold grief and horror he unleashed on mankind. A trail of mass murder genocide rape and enslavement, still unfolding that we see being carried out where ever moslems are imposing and invading. including here in Mindanao. Zealously obeying the 100s of commands to “kill/behead terrorise unbelievers…till there are no unbelievers”, 8;12; mohammed recorded in the Koran, and, zealously following his example of a mass murdering rapist as recorded in the hadiths.
    Well over 330 million have been slaughtered thru jihad, terrorism etc. At least 50 million of that number are moslems slaughtered by moslems. That we see ongoing and counting fast all over the earth. In Africa Middle East Mindanao etc.

    Where as Jesus was resurrected; Becoming more powerful than ever.(Acts 1;1-11) Gathering apostles like Saul (Acts 9;1-5)
    Directing a world wide ongoing preaching work, assuring his disciples/followers, “I am with you all the days till until the end of the system of things”. Matthew 28;20
    Soon he/Jesus will turn his attention to the world to bring judgement to all the murderers and apposers like mohammed and his blood lusting followers who have reaped untold suffering and mayhem. They will be executed by the “sword that protrudes from his mouth”. The “wild beast and the ‘false prophet’ will be destroyed forever in the lake of fire”. Revelation 19;11-21
    Then he/Jesus will establish his “Kingdom” (John 18;36) on earth.
    Jesus Christ’s Kingdom will; “Never be brought to ruin, it will not pass on to any other people. It will stand forever”. Daniel 2;44

    • Moses also slaughter thousands of people Numbers 31:13-18. Is moses a lunatic or barbarian or terrorist. Of course No! In fact jesus christ recognized him as prophet of God and recognized the torah. Matthew 5:17

    • The secularism that corrupted the mind of people on earth brought by the west for instance gambling is legalized marriage between men and men/women and women legalized by most of the country and many other wordly things that has shifted to disbelief of one creator. Only muslim fought that corruption even it will caused to loss their lives. War against evil is mention in bible and qur an. But not a single christian fougth against that evil instead they are promoting that evil. Don’t give your personal opinion with out better understanding on it. You are using passage in the bible but you don’t understand the meaning of it. The dragon as mention in the revealation is the devil that will bring corruption on earth it will bring evil and many will follow him great and small and they wage war against the lamb. The followers of that dragon will outnumber the Godspeople. Who is that dragon? the united states of america the UK army of that countries included a satanism in their rank. They fought the Gods people with thier ally. Their allies are there follower who loved the way of dragon. Muslim wont allow to follow that dragon because it is the devil.

    • Too bad that you know the bible but you don’t understand it. America your ally thier soldier just killed the transgender who also a disbeliever engage sex with him then he killed him (laude) tsk tsk tsk. Who is the enemy of this american and who is thier allies. Very simple to Iidentify them. Almost evil are legalized but only al qaeda and so called terrorist groups dare to fight this dragon and his allies. There are satanist belong to the ranks of thier armed forces. Satanic religion is recognized by them.
