A Prophecy from the Book of Enoch

SCROLLENOCH

 

3. And Enoch began to recount from the books and said:
“I was born the seventh in the first week,
While judgement and righteousness still endured.

Week Two:
4. “And after me there shall arise in the second week great wickedness,
And deceit shall have sprung up;
And in it there shall be the first end.
“And in it a man shall be saved;
And after it is ended unrighteousness shall grow up,
And a law shall be made for the sinners.

Week Three:
5. “And after that in the third week at its close
A man shall be elected as the plant of righteous judgement,
And his posterity shall become the plant of righteousness for evermore.

Week Four:
6″. And after that in the fourth week, at its close,
Visions of the holy and righteous shall be seen,
And a law for all generations and an enclosure shall be made for them.

Week Five:
7″. And after that in the fifth week, at its close,
The house of glory and dominion shall be built for ever.

Week Six: 
8. “And after that in the sixth week all who live in it shall be blinded,
And the hearts of all of them shall godlessly forsake wisdom.
“And in it a man shall ascend;
And at its close the house of dominion shall be burnt with fire,
And the whole race of the chosen root shall be dispersed.

Week Seven:
9. “And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise,
And many shall be its deeds,
And all its deeds shall be apostate.

10. “And at its close shall be elected
The elect righteous of the eternal plant of righteousness,
To receive sevenfold instruction concerning all God’s creation.

Clearly, Week 2 refers to Noah and the Flood; Week 3 to the calling of Abraham by whom all nations would be blessed and Week 4 to the Law and the Ark of the Covenant. Weeks 5- 7 is understood by most to be relating to the temple but applying the dual perspective to prophecy set out in the opening chapter of my book***  verses 8-10  would have application to its successor, the Church.
