Revelation 19

-Multitude in heaven (Rev 19:1-6)

19And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

When the term great is used, it means the most high or something to be the most powerful. This would be the final voice, all in heaven (paradise) are in agreement speaking in unison. Everyone here being of the spiritual realm already and of the spiritual understanding are speaking the spiritual truth together.

All these have come together to honor and recognize His righteousness and judgment, as Babylon falls. Babylon corrupted the earth with her earthly level teaching and fornication. She killed the saints and destroyed those at the beginning of time, those being the church (children of God)  that had the higher level or spiritual eye of the meaning of the Word. They purposely used the earthly level meaning to cover the heavenly level meanings and keep them from the people. This was done in essence through all earthly religions those that state they are Christian based and those that are different. These are all the spiritual fornication of Babylon herself, so to speak, they are in bed with anything other than Christ (God/Holy Spirit) whom they are supposed to be with, as we are to be the bride of Christ.

If you are understanding the Word only with your earthly vision, and not seeing it with your earthly eye (understanding) and spiritual eye (understanding), you will not have full understanding of what is meant to be known (the truth). Which in turn is why we need the Holy Spirit to help us to see and understand on a spiritual level what we are unable to do on our own without Her. We need the earthly together with the spiritual to understand the full heavenly meaning. Yet, like it states in Luke and the Gospel of Thomas, the keys have been hidden. So, the earthly understanding has been corrupted, but we can still see the truth with the keys that are here, just in books that people reject (the builders rejected the cornerstone).

4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

The backing behind the use of the Great Whore and fornication, is because the government and the institutions/religions are all in bed together so to speak. Which is also why Jesus says that friendship with the world is enmity with God, this is why He refers to that as adultery. Technically, it is a forbidden union to be together with the world, but that is what the churches of the world have done for the last two thousand years or more. The standardized Christian church of the world has taken on the earthly meaning of God’s word and completely looked over the spiritual aspect of it, and in turn they have lost sight of the truth. They have pushed Jesus as a man (flesh only) and they do not grasp the parallelisms, metaphors, or parables. Over time the truth has been indoctrinated and theologized into something it is not, yet it has become the standard of the worldly church. This happening, blinds people from seeing the truth as it really is, and which would be like trying to see the snow how it appears, through foggy mud stained windows.

The saints have been vindicated here and the great whore is gone now and will never return. The four beasts corresponds with the six thousand years which I believe we have discussed in earlier chapters.

Revelation 4 7 and the first living creature [is] like a lion, and the second living creature [is] like a calf, and the third living creature hath the face as a man, and the fourth living creature [is] like an eagle flying.

Enoch 40.1 And after this I saw a thousand thousands and ten thousand times ten thousand! A multitude beyond number, or reckoning, who stood in front of the Glory of the Lord of Spirits. 40.2 I looked, and on the four sides of the Lord of Spirits, I saw four figures, different from those who were standing; and I learnt their names, because the Angel who went with me made known their names, and showed me all the secret things. 40.3 And I heard the voices of those four figures as they sang praises in front of the Lord of Glory. 40.4 The first voice blesses the Lord of Spirits forever and ever. 40.5 And the second voice I heard blessing the Chosen One and the chosen who depend on the Lord of Spirits. 40.6 And the third voice I heard, petitioned, and prayed, on behalf of those who dwell on dry ground and supplicate in the name of the Lord of Spirits. 40.7 And the fourth voice I heard driving away the Satans and not allowing them to come in front of the Lord of Spirits to accuse those who dwell on the high ground. 40.8 And after this I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, and showed me everything which is secret: “Who are those four figures, whom I have seen, and whose words I have heard and written down?” 40.9 And he said to me: “This first one, is the Holy Michael, the merciful and long-suffering. And the second, who is in charge of all the diseases, and in charge of all the wounds of the sons of men, is Raphael. And the third, who is in charge of all the powers, is the Holy Gabriel. And the fourth, who is in charge of repentance and hope of those who will inherit eternal life, is Phanuel.” 40.10 And these are the four Angels of the Lord Most High; and the four voices that I heard in those days.

These four beasts/four living creatures could very well be the four that are described above in Enoch 40, Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, and Phanuel. In Revelation it appears that you should know about these four and it seems that it’s assumed, that is if you have read the Book of Enoch. Throughout the Bible you don’t really get a good explanation as to who these beasts are, but with it being assumed that you know them and the only really good explanation of them being in Enoch, here again we see that this Book should have never been removed from the “Biblical text.” The importance of much understanding throughout history and the Bible and other text, Enoch is key to them all. It carries with it so much needed information, which is likely why they removed it, how would they have deceived the people otherwise.

5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.

The great multitude would be all those that have been saved, and they are the voice in agreement speaking as one. The waters are the people of the many nations, peoples, and tongues which, have all become one. They are in agreement that the Lord God who is omnipotent reigns. The seven thunders are sealed up until the time of the end, which are possibly uttering their voices on that day.

(3rd) The wedding supper announced (Rev 19:7-10)

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Remember Jesus and Christ have very different meanings, Jesus is the flesh or lower level, and Christ is the spiritual or heavenly level. Which in turn is the earthly level and the heavenly levels of meaning, which is how we get the full truth of things, part of it has to be given to us through the Holy Spirit. Just like, Peter giving him the title of Christ, because the Spirit/The Father in Heaven revealed that to him just as Christ stated in Matthew.

Matthew 16 15 He saith to them, `And ye — who do ye say me to be?’ 16 and Simon Peter answering said, `Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ 17 And Jesus answering said to him, `Happy art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and blood did not reveal [it] to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens.

What Jesus did as a man had a spiritual dimension and a physical dimension to each act, He is spirit and He is prophecy in all that He does. For instance, when He healed the blind man’s eyes, on the level of the physical it has to do with his physical sight, but on the level of the spiritual it has to do with the opening of his spiritual eyes so he could see the truth of God. If you only look at this in one aspect which is what the standardized church today does, they look and read things from only the physical (not to mention the missing books and mistranslation), you miss half of the whole meaning of things and in essence with certain things, miss the whole meaning. Peter being spoken to by “The Father who is in heaven,” is the Holy Spirit or the angels relying the truth of God to us, when we are willing to listen, that still small voice is God at work. This world has become so filled with noise that many people never hear that voice and wonder why. I’ve had a guy ask me that before, he said he didn’t know if he believed that, his wife said she heard it but he never had. Question is have you been in silence to hear it, or are you constantly surround by noise and distractions that would keep you from hear the Holy Spirit voice when She speaks?

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

The angel here that is bring the message is saying, “Do not worship me,” because he is a servant of those that have the testimony of Christ Jesus, but God brings the spiritual aspect or the Spirit of prophecy.

(4th) King on a white horse (Rev 19:11-21)

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Here he is seeing that the heavenly level meaning is opening up. Those who worship the Father should worship in Spirit and in truth. To do so you must think in spiritual aspects with all things, you don’t just have eyes, but you have spiritual eyes. Which can go along also with things like a day. I have pointed out before that a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years a day, so God created the world in six thousand years, so technically speaking this world is somewhere around twelve thousand years old. You can learn more about this in the Gospel of Barnabas as well as the Biblical verses 2 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:4. This being true also, when Jesus died in the flesh and returned on the third day that would spiritually be the third millennium since a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years a day. So Jesus as the Logos rose up on the third spiritual day and the Logos manifested Himself in the third millennium.

The Acts of John 101 Nothing, therefore, of the things which they will say of me have I suffered: nay, that suffering also which I showed unto thee and the rest in the dance, I will that it be called a mystery. For what thou art, thou seest, for I showed it thee; but what I am I alone know, and no man else. Suffer me then to keep that which is mine, and that which is thine behold thou through me, and behold me in truth, that I am, not what I said, but what thou art able to know, because thou art akin thereto. Thou hearest that I suffered, yet did I not suffer; that I suffered not, yet did I suffer; that I was pierced, yet I was not smitten; hanged, and I was not hanged; that blood flowed from me, and it flowed not; and, in a word, what they say of me, that befell me not, but what they say not, that did I suffer. Now what those things are I signify unto thee, for I know that thou wilt understand. Perceive thou therefore in me the praising (al. slaying al. rest) of the (or a) Word (Logos), the piercing of the Word, the blood of the Word, the wound of the Word, the hanging up of the Word, the suffering of the Word, the nailing (fixing) of the Word, the death of the Word. And so speak I, separating off the manhood. Perceive thou therefore in the first place of the Word; then shalt thou perceive the Lord, and in the third place the man, and what he hath suffered. (You can read the rest of this and many other books at this link: http://www.scriptural-truth.com/apocrypha_books.html)

The religious secular powers that be, brought the Logo (the Word) to a false trial which explains why they have removed books that are needed and brought about false teachings/religion itself and the canonization process. Everything that Christ did in the flesh He did as a living parable of the Logos. Which Him being the Word, (as stated above) that is what they buried under the earthly meaning, pierced, wounded, suffered, and hung. This explains so much with all the translations of the “Bible” that are mistranslated and all the books that have been removed. They have taken them out of sight of the people criticized and discredited them with false truths to lead the people away from God, the Spirit, Christ, and truth as much as possible.

Rev 6:2 and I saw, and lo, a white horse, and he who is sitting upon it is having a bow, and there was given to him a crown, and he went forth overcoming, and that he may overcome.

In Rev 19:11 we see the white horse like we did in Rev 6. It appears that this white horse was false religion. This is contrasted with Jesus who is the truth, which is called the Word of God.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

His clothes were His actions, deeds, and righteousness. They defiled His righteousness but it basically became a badge of honor for Him in the end. He is riding a white horse and we are riding with Him as His army. We are the bride of Christ that is to be arrayed in fine white linen without spot or blemish. We are going out to do battle with the earthly armies, kings, or teachers.  

15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Isaiah 11:4 And he hath judged in righteousness the poor, And decided in uprightness for the humble of earth, And hath smitten earth with the rod of his mouth, And with the breath of his lips he putteth the wicked to death. 5 And righteousness hath been the girdle of his loins, And faithfulness — the girdle of his reins.

The rod of His mouth, it’s a measuring rod, and the word canon has to do with the word cane, so this all has to do with the measure of something. Canon that is taught in the aspect that you may very well understand it to be is an accepted list of books that are seen as authoritative and anything else that has not been listed as accepted is not to be acknowledged or read. The rod of His mouth is actually what He says, and not some list of books that are established by the pharasitical counsels, which are the very ones He warned us about. It is what He says, that is the rod or the canon and it is solid.

Rev 14 18 and another messenger did come forth out from the altar, having authority over the fire, and he called with a great cry to him having the sharp sickle, saying, `Send forth thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, because come to perfection have her grapes;’19 and the messenger did put forth his sickle to the earth, and did gather the vine of the earth, and did cast [it] to the great wine-press of the wrath of God;20 and trodden was the wine-press outside of the city, and blood did come forth out of the wine-press — unto the bridles of the horses, a thousand, six hundred furlongs. Gospel of Thomas 40 Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the Father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”

This vine being the vine of the earth, or the false vine are also the teachings of the earth, which will be cast into the great wine-press of the wrath of God.

Going back up to Rev 19:13 where it says about the vesture dipped in blood. We see the blood of the saints, and if you think about it wine is the blood of the grape. All these terms, are used throughout the book of Revelation to show those who are deceived or fixated on the level of the flesh or teach on the level of the flesh. Much of what Jesus did like healing the blind man is seen in the physical as a miracle, but it is so great that people focus only on the physical aspect of it and look past the spiritual aspect of it. People see that miracle being the greatness of that act, but it is so much more than just simply physically giving that man sight. In essence, humanity tends to cling to the physical and forget about the spiritual, so they miss so much of what is happening. Which is why the things that are revealed to us are revealed to us by God Himself, through the Holy Spirit.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Paul helps us out very well by filling in the blanks and giving us things we can use to figure out Revelation. (Read) 1 Thess 4:13-18 and Rev 19:17 they both speak of an angel with a loud voice. These are the saints that have become angelic. This is so, because if you remember Steven and the people referring to him as having the face of an angel (Acts 6:15). As well as Elijah at the transfiguration (Matt. 17:1-13) he was also in an angelic state. Adam and Eve also had the bright nature before sin, and you see that in the book of Adam and Eve, and Paul alludes to that book many times especially in 2 Corinthians. We will neither marry or be given in marriage, like the angels in heaven (Matt. 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:34) so this will be our future state. (Read) 1 Thess 5:1-11 In 1 Thess 4 it starts out saying, “I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep” the ones that are asleep here appear to be the ones that are asleep in the spiritual sense, not the physically dead. These are the people who don’t have the light, they don’t walk in the day they walk in the night. They are drunk on the earthly teachings. They are asleep in Jesus, but dead in Christ. These people in 1 Thess 5 are concerned about their souls and their salvation as well as being concerned about their brothers and sister being drunk with the night (false teachings), and falling for the lies. So, those that sleep in Jesus which is means in the bodily (physical) sense, this is them being so impressed by the physical deeds and resurrection that they lose sight of Jesus as the Logos. This would explain much of the Christian world today, they are so focused on the physical, that they are easily lead astray from the spiritual and all the things the Pharasitical counsels did to hide (burry) the Word (removing books), piercing the Word (inputting false translations), it was simply forgotten and overlooked for two thousand years. The hard question that has been on my mind for a while and I have come to the conclusion of the same thing that Paul is explaining here, those people that are dead in Christ, are not doomed, it says in 1 Thess 4:16 that, “the dead in Christ shall rise first.” So, all those who are asleep will somehow come out of that sleep. “The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout,” so the heavenly level (spiritual) meaning will be visible to them. At the (7th) trump of God, those who are dead will receive Christ (heavenly level meanings) “that which is not revealed by flesh and blood, but by the Father” (Remember what Jesus said about Peter?). If you are worried about those around you (family and friends), worry not, because “He will come with ten thousands of His saints,” “behold He comes with clouds (of witnesses).” Those of us who see the truth and it is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit, we are the clouds (armies of the elect), and we are the witnesses for these people. Which is why we have to press on with our studies, prayer, research, and listening to the Spirit as She speaks to us. The dead in Christ shall rise first, which means those shall be given the Christ nature, revelation, the Christ level meaning, the heavenly meaning, or the spiritual meaning/sight. Those who are alive and remain, being the New Testament and the New Testament prophets which have life in them, they are accepted in the churches and they remain, they shall be caught up together with them in the clouds. So, He is saying, that His Words will not return void. So, the destruction comes upon them by shinning a light, into the darkened, drunken, sleeping world. Where all lies of the night will be destroyed from them and they will see the truth. The night is the six thousand years. They are victims of false teachings which is why they are deceived or in Jesus words, they stumble. He is reassuring us here that God has not appointed us to wrath. No matter if we are awake or asleep we shall be together with Him! The great news is that the Christians shall have salvation weather they realize this for the two thousand years or not. He is going to battle against the institutions and come after those that hide the truth from His people.

Matt 24:27 for as the lightning doth come forth from the east (beginnings), and doth appear unto the west (endings) (the whole of the scriptures will be revealed from beginning to end), so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man; 28 for wherever the carcass may be, there shall the eagles (the dead church) be gathered together. 29 `And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in the heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth smite the beast, and they shall see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of the heaven (cloud of witnesses and armies of heaven), with power and much glory; 31 and he shall send his messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the ends of the heavens unto the ends thereof (so from the east to the west).

Again, so even if the people are asleep they will be saved, He will send His angels out with great trumpets as well as sending out His elect to help too.

19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast (religious institution) was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

You know how a little earlier in this chapter we talked about people being focused on the physical aspects of Jesus and not the spiritual. This focus also helps the false prophet deceive people, because he will be able to do miracles and people will not look at the spiritual aspect of them, but become in awe, drunken on his worldly works. You can see this in the world now, Satan is gathering everything that stands against God. They are preparing for battle, God’s people are coming to and so are Satan’s people. Which is why there are several of us separating from the institution and diligently seeking God through the Holy Spirit. We are coming out of the wood works, all different paths behind us but leading straight ahead to God and letting it be made known who God truly is, and not what the world and the worldly religious institutions have made Him to be. We have been give the Power, the Sword, the truth of God’s word. We are given the orders to do as we are to do, and we have to be given the ability to do this. Enoch 1:9; Jude 14 and 15, we are to wage war against them, they gather against us (the religious institution) and we gather against them. The beast which is the religious institution (false Christianity) and with the false prophet are destroyed being cast into the lake of fire.

Gospel of Thomas 29) Jesus said, If the flesh (The lower-level of the Scriptures) came into being because of spirit (That the higher, Spiritual level is couched in the lower, physical level), it is a wonder. But if spirit (The higher level meaning, by means of the Holy, Elect Children) came into being because of the body (Born of the Woman, or the flesh and blood, reproducing after the, lower, fleshly meaning of the Scriptures), it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth (The higher level meaning of the Scriptures) has made its home (Couched itself) in this poverty (The lower level meaning of the Scriptures).

The fact that the spirit has couched itself in the flesh, is the thing that give the antichrist that false teaching/false Christianity that is what give them the power to lie. In other words they took Christ and made Him Jesus to twist the truth and deceive the people. The false prophet that has been spoken about, is described in 2 Thess 2.

2 Thess 2:8 and then shall be revealed the Lawless One, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the manifestation of his presence, 9 [him,] whose presence is according to the working of the Adversary, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, 10 and in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because the love of the truth they did not receive for their being saved, 11 and because of this shall God send to them a working of delusion, for their believing the lie, 12 that they may be judged — all who did not believe the truth, but were well pleased in the unrighteousness.

The lying wonders is the flesh, because they did not love the truth. This is in reference to the ones who lulled the people to sleep. This false teaching exist up until that day and that is why they are cast alive into the brimstone, they will still be in this world running the religion/false Christianity. All religions, secularism, any that deny the old or new testament, atheism, or any man made religions that have nothing to do with Christianity will be destroyed by the truth, by the words of Jesus, or the sword that comes out of His mouth. Because of Christ Word (sword), we are able to overcome false religion and the entire established order or institution.

Is Hell Eternal, Is It Even Just Hell?

In the accepted cannon, they have translated Hell down to one place; this in fact is not true there are several levels to what the translators (scribes and Pharisees) changed into Hell. There is Paradise, Sheol or Hades, Hell, Lake of Fire, and the bottomless pit. Another thing I would like to talk about through this is, about hell being eternal per the English and aion or aionios per the Greek or eon if you say it in English.

In Luke 16:22-26 you read about Lazarus and the rich man, here it talks about Abraham’s bosom. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Young’s Literal Translation Luke 16:23 – and in the hades having lifted up his eyes, being in torments, he doth see Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom

The beggar is not in hell, he is in Hades or sheol which is next to Paradise from what is said here. The flame of his torment is the refinement of God’s fire; it’s the acknowledgement of your debts and along with whatever discomfort comes being before the Might God knowing you are wrong and dealing with all the things done while you were on the earth.

Luke 23:43 – “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise (Paradisos).”

2 Corinthians 12:2-4 – “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven (Treetos Ooranos). 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise (Paradisos), and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”

Revelation 2:7 – “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise (Paradios) of God.”

(These verses all say the third heaven and pardise in the Young’s Literal Translation and the Greek Textus Receptus. I’ve found of my years of research and study that no all of the translations are wrong, but bits and pieces are translated wrong just enough to change the meaning of things, as well as bits and pieces of the actual Word of God have been removed and the Canon be built around ways to get by but keep us at bay from knowing the full truth of God.)

After reading Luke 16 verses above and the other verses we have confirmation that there is indeed a paradise, as Jesus spoke it on the cross as well as the rich man and the beggar teaching. So the separation of paradise, hell, hades or sheol, and the lake of fire are all clustered into one in the English translation. Which in example, if you took New Orleans, Paris, New York and called them all Paris, it would be incorrect and leave much out that would be known about the two that have been lumped into Paris as well as their locations. So hell is not one place, nor does it carry the same meanings or locations behind it that the others do. This should be common logic to anyone who actually reads God’s word.

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Proverbs 3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Job 5:17-18
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.
(These verses all say chasten or correct in the Young’s Literal Translation.)

God says, that those whom He loves, He disciplines, which is the refining fire. To purify gold they refine it in the fire, which is what God does to those who do not make it to Paradise. He gives us free will and we can choose to follow Him or the devil, we follow Love or we follow corruption, but no matter what we choose, we are still His children and He still loves us dearly, each and every one of us. Just as we would do anything for our children, and our love being earthly and it doesn’t compare to His at all, can you imagine how He must feel for us. We spank our children because we love them, to teach them right and wrong, spankings hurt, but they help mold us for the better. This is in a sense what God will do to those who do not make it to paradise, though I’m not entirely sure what their disciplines will be, there will be some form of refinement or purification.

Matthew 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. (YLT is the same)

This says we will pay our debt to the last penny basically that we owe for what we did on earth.

Matthew 25:41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

YLT Matt. 245:41 Then shall he say also to those on the left hand, go ye from me, the cursed to the fire, the age-during, that hath been prepared for the devil and his messengers.

Acts 2:27 “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (Hades/Sheol), neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

YLT Acts 2:27 because thou wilt not leave my soul to hades, nor wilt thou give thy Kind One to see corruption;

They will be there for a time, not eternity, until they pay the last penny of their debt. In the Greek they use the word Aion or Eon which means for a time or for an age. That tells you that no soul will be left there forever or eternally as they have translated out the true word aion or eon and input the English word eternal.

Also, if you look in Jonah when it talks about him being in the belly of the whale, it states in some versions hell and eternal or forever, but that makes no sense, as Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days. Also, this shows and example of how we can be saved from this place, because you have to think that being in the belly of that whale, no one would have survived three days. So, when Jonah realized his wrong and came to terms with what he needed to do, God released him and brought him to life. It’s a matter of people in sheol or hades, or hell coming to terms with God and paying what debt they owe to the last cent. God does bring all unto Himself eventually, and every knee will bow eventually, and every tongue will confess eventually, and all tears and pain will be wiped away.

KJV Jonah 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice…Jonah 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.

YLT Jonah 2:2 And he saith: I called, because of my distress, to Jehovah, and He doth answer me, from the belly of sheol I have cried, thou hast heard my voice…Jonah 2:6 To the cuttings of mountains I have come down, the earth her bars [are] behind me to the age. And Thou bringest up from the pit my life, O Jehovah my God.

1 Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
YLT 1 Tim. 2:4 who doth will all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

YLT 2 Peter 3:9 the Lord is not slow in regard to the promise, as certain count slowness, but is long-suffering to us, not counseling any to be lost but all to pass on to reformation,

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might (would) be saved.

YLT John 3:16-17 in this we have known the love, because He for us his life did lay down, and we ought for the brethren the lives to lay down; and whosoever may have the goods of the world, and may view his brother having need, and may shut up his bowels from him—how doth the love of God remain in him?

God didn’t send Christ, because He might save, He sent Christ because He would save. His Son’s death will not be in vain. Also, if you read the two verses, they are different, very different. This is one of the pivotal verses in Christianity.

I kept reading in comparison to the KJV and it’s very different as you keep reading. The Young’s on the major Bible sites may not be the correct version, but a newer or updated version that is very different from the actual. I have the Edinburgh, January 1898 which was the second edition to the first from Edinburgh, Sept 10th 1862. I found it on Bible Gateway, but it doesn’t tell me what translation it is, but when I put in young’s and it says modern in the selections as I scroll so I’m not sure what this version is, but it does not match the original one at all. Sorry I got off topic there, I’m just really glad I found that so I do use that version.

Isaiah 53:5-6 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all…..10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

YLT Isaiah 53:5-6 And he is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace is on him, and by his bruise there is healing to us. All of us like sheep have wandered, each to his own way we have turned, and Jehovah hath cased to meet on him, the punishment of us all…And Jehovah hath delighted to bruise him, He hath made him sick, if his soul doth make an offering for guilt, He seeth seed—he prolongeth days, and pleasure of Jehovah in his hand doth prosper.

Christ came to save all, all meaning all not some or a few, all. He defeated death and hell when He went down to preach to the lost in prison which would be hades, sheol, or hell, defeat means to conquer, completely. He says that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. God’s will is more powerful than our little minds can imagine. So much so that He put His own Son on the cross for us, and in doing so, it will not have been done in vain. He came for all to save all. Though some would reject Him, He still loves them. He will show them the truth and because of their stubbornness and false beliefs from this world, will face the refinement and pay the debt on which they owe to the last penny, but they will still at some point return to God themselves.

Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

YLT Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and the death shall not be anymore, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, because the first things did go away.

It says that He will wipe away every tear and no more pain, this would not be possible, if people where “burning in hell for eternity.”
Romans 4:11
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

YLT Romans 4:11 And a sign he did receive of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith in the uncircumcision, for his being father of all those believing through uncircumcision, for the righteousness also being reckoned to them,

Philippians 2:10-11
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

YLT Philippians 2:10-11 that in the name of Jesus every knee may bow –of heavenlies and eathlies, and what are under the earthAnd that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

If every tongue is going to confess, that means all, just as Christ came to save all.

Revelation 20:13-21:1 – “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell (Hades) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell (Hades) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

The sea here is the church, and it giving up the dead is in accordance with the knowing of those who are false teachers and prophets, which are to be delivered to Hades because of their works and their sin of either disbelief or knowing the truth and hiding it inside lies to deceive God’s children/church/people. For a time aion, they will be delivered here for refinement, the only other option really is that they would be completely destroyed, because there will be no more pain or tears at some point and that would not be possible if there were still these false teachers and prophets in torment. Torment not meaning they are being ripped apart technically, but they are facing the truth of what they did on this earth, they are paying in full to the last penny for the things they have done and the debt they owe according to God. Once the new heaven and new earth are formed, there will be no more need for a sea/church, because we will all be with God and there will be no separation any longer. Things will be as God meant them to be.

Enoch 51.1 And in those days the Earth will return that which has been entrusted to it, and Sheol will return that which has been entrusted to it and that which it has received. And destruction will return what it owes.

So for all that has been done on this earth and the corruption that has been brought by Lucifer, the fallen angels, and the people who have willingly followed them or been lured by them through deceitful things will be brought down. All that they saw as truth and all the lies they stood on will crumble beneath them and they will be no more. Again, like we read in Matthew 5:26 all of this and each of them will pay what they owe.

Enoch 54.5 And he said to me: “These are being prepared for the hosts of Azazel, so that they may take them, and throw them into the lowest part of hell; and they will cover their jaws with rough stones, as the Lord of Spirits commanded.

This is talking about the immeasurably weighted chains that are being prepared for Azazel and his host. It speaks of the lowest part of hell, which in turn tells us that there are even levels to hell.

Hell being more than one place as I have shown above, and then we come to the eternal part of it, the words that are used in the Greek to describe was is translated into eternally in hell are kolasij aion.

Word: kolasij Pronounce: kol’-as-is Greek: κολασιν
Strongs Number: G2851
Orig: from 2849; penal infliction:–punishment, torment. G2849
Use: TDNT-3:816,451 Noun Feminine
1) correction, punishment, penalty

An aion or eon means an age or a time. It doesn’t make much sense that it would be forever if every tear was wiped away and there was no more pain. Kolasij which is given above can mean correction and in the context in which this is written it does mean correction, just as God states that He disciplines those He loves and He loves us all.

Strong’s Greek: 165. αἰών (aión) — a space of time, an age –biblehub.com/greek/165.htm
Definition: an age, a cycle (of time), especially of the present age

Word: aiwn Pronounce: ahee-ohn’ Greek: αιων
Strongs Number: G165
Orig: from the same as 104; properly, an age; by extension, perpetuity (also past); by implication, the world; specially (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future):–age, course, eternal, (for) ever(-more), (n-)ever, (beginning of the , while the) world (began, without end). Compare 5550. G104
Use: TDNT-1:197,31 Noun Masculine

Matthew 25:46 for example, the way this word is used is αιωνιον or aionios which is in context age-long. An Age does not mean eternal but in some instances they will try to make it seem as such, I believe what they were portraying which actually makes logical sense in all the instances where this is used besides when God speaks of the punishment for the fallen angels which it is possible they will be destroyed, is that it is a long period of time it’s not quick like our lives, it might be longer than even we will live. The only time that the word eternal should apply possibly as it is in the English meaning is for the angels.

In the Young’s Literal Translation Matthew 25:46
And these shall go away to punishment age-during, but the righteous to live age-during.

KJV Matthew 25:46 – And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

I found the article below which explained what I’ve written above exactly as I was trying to explain it and had previously researched this info before coming across this, but this is well written so I wanted to add this in to point out some facts that many people are unaware of, as well as reiterate what I’ve stated above. If you don’t dig you will remain on the surface of mans word and man’s world and you will miss God’s Word and the Heavenly Wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

“Eternal” Punishment (Matthew 25:46) Is NOT Found In The Greek New Testament.
By Tony Nungesser and Gary Amirault

The entire concept of eternal or everlasting punishment hinges primarily on a single verse of Scripture– Matthew 25:46. This is the only place in the entire Bible where we find these two words together AND only in some Bibles. There are over a dozen English translations which do NOT contain the concept of “eternal punishment” on ANY of their pages, NOR the pagan concept of Hell.

The Greek form for “everlasting punishment” in Matthew 25:46 is ”kolasin aionion.” Kolasin is a noun in the accusative form, singular voice, feminine gender and means “punishment, chastening, correction, to cut-off as in pruning a tree to bare more fruit.” “Aionion” is the adjective form of “aion,” in the singular form and means “pertaining to an eon or age, an indeterminate period of time.” (Note: the two words in many, not all translations become reversed when bringing the Greek into English, that is, “kolasin aionion” literally punishment everlasting is reversed to everlasting punishment so as to make better sense in English.)

“Aionion,” as shown above, is the singular form of the adjective of the Greek noun “aion.” Many people unfamiliar with the Greek do not realize that the endings of the same word change (inflection) to indicate its mood, case, gender, etc. Therefore, “aionion” may appear with different endings. “Aionion, aioniou, aionios,” for example, are all different inflections of the adjective form of the noun “aion.”

The noun “aion” in Greek literature has always meant “an indeterminate period of time. It could be as short as the time Jonah spent in the belly of a fish (three days or nights even though the KJV has him in the “belly of Hell” “forever,” obviously a mistranslation; see Jonah 2:2, 2:6.), the length of a man’s life, or as long as an age.

The Bible speaks of at least 5 “aions” and perhaps many more. If there were “aions” in the past, then aions must have an end. The New Testament writers spoke of “the present wicked aion” which ended during that very generation. Obviously, it was followed by another “aion”– the “aion” in which we presently live. If there are “aions” to come, it must mean that this one we live in will also end.

There is a verse which says “the consummation of the aions” proving that each “aion” ends. So how can they be eternal?

There is “the coming eon” (Matt.10:30, Luke 18:30
There is “the present wicked eon” (Gal.1:4)
There is “the oncoming eons (future)(Eph.2:7)
There is “the conclusion of the eon (present) (Mt.13:39,40)
There is “the secret concealed from the eons (past) (Eph.3:9)

Plainly, the Greek word “aion” transliterated “eon” cannot mean “eternal.” A study into the Greek of the Biblical period and before will bear this out.

“Aionion” is the adjective of the noun “aion.”

Since grammar rules mandate an adjective CANNOT take on a greater force than its noun form, it is evident that “aionion” in any of its adjective forms (ios, ou, on) CANNOT possibly mean “everlasting” or anything remotely indicating eternity or unending time.

For example, “hourly” cannot mean “pertaining to days, weeks, months, or years. The word MUST mean “pertaining to an hour.” Therefore, “aionion,” the adjective form of the noun “aion” which clearly means a period of indeterminate TIME, CANNOT mean, “forever and ever, eternal, everlasting, eternity, etc.” or other words which connote timelessness or unending ages.

Therefore, those many Bibles which do NOT contain the teaching of everlasting punishment or Hell are true to the original languages of Greek and Hebrew. Those which teach everlasting punishment or Hell are false. Scholars are just as easily subjected to the “traditions of the elders” as the rest of us. It’s time to let the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible break down the traditions of men.

Here is a list of Bibles which have taken major steps towards correcting many of the corruptions found in the King James Bible, NIV, NASB, NRSV, Amplified, as well as other leading selling Bibles:
Some of them are published by leading Evangelical Christian publishers like Baker Book House, Kregal and Eerdman’s Publishing. Here’s a partial list of some English Bible translations that do NOT contain Hell nor the concept of everlasting punishment: Rotherham’s Emphasized Bible (Kregal Publishers), Young’s Literal Translation of the Holy Bible (Baker Book House Publishers; Robert Young is author of the famous Young’s Concordance), Concordant Literal Translation of the N.T. (Concordant Publishing Concern), Scarlet’s New Testament (Nathaniel Scarlett, 1798), The New Testament (Abner Kneeland, 1823) Emphatic Diaglott (Greek/English Interlinear), The New Covenant (J.W. Hanson, 1884), New Testament in Modern Speech (Weymouth, 1910), The Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible (1976), The Twentieth Century New Testament (1900), The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Anointed (James L. Tomanek)1958), The Western New Testament (1926), The New Testament, a Translation (Rev. Edgar Lewis Clementson, 1938), The People’s New Testament (Arthur Overbury), The New Testament, A New Translation based upon the Oldest Manuscripts (Johannes Greber, 1980) Jonathan Mitchell New Testament (2009) Far Above All New Testament (2009).
There are other translations like the Companion Bible King James Version, American Standard Version (1901), the Newberry Reference Bible (Still published by Kregal Publications), and the Riverside New Testament by Ballantine (1934) which contain footnotes, marginal readings and appendages which point out that several key Greek and Hebrew words have been MIStranslated by such Bible versions as the King James Bible.

Book of Enoch/The Bible Scripture Comparison

Enoch is referenced in the Canonical Bible so many times either by name or reference of a verse meaning the same things. So I have gone through and done some research to show you all the truth of this, that we are not being given all the words of God, but merely a small portion. It is up to you to see past the scribes and Pharisees of the centuries and seek out the whole of God’s word. My question to you is who told you that we should not read these books? Who told them? Who told them? You are laying your faith upon men and not God. History is there for a reason. Many of the books from those times help us understand those times in history better, so why not these that actually reflect God/Jesus/Holy Spirit. Think about this and pray about this.

[Enoch is an antediluvian book – before the time of the biblical flood.]

Hebrews 11:5-7
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him; for before [his] translation he has the testimony that he had pleased God. 6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]. For he that draws near to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them who seek him out. 7By faith, Noah, oracularly warned concerning things not yet seen, moved with fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which [is] according to faith.

In closing with the comparisons, I will remind you that Jesus said in Matthew 4:4
4 But he answering said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which goes out through God’s mouth.

Luke 3:36-38
36 of Cainan, of Arphaxad, of Sem, of Noe (This is Noah in English), of Lamech, 37 of Methusala, of Enoch, of Jared, of Maleleel, of Cainan, 38 of Enos, of Seth, of Adam, of God.

Matthew 24: 38-39
38 For as they were in the days which were before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day on which Noe (This is Noah) entered into the ark, 39 and they knew not till the flood came and took all away; thus also shall be the coming of the Son of man.

Luke 17: 26-27
26 And as it took place in the days of Noe (This is Noah), thus also shall it be in the days of the Son of man: 27 they ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all [of them];

Romans 1:18
18 For there is revealed wrath of God from heaven upon all impiety, and unrighteousness of men holding the truth in unrighteousness.

Isaiah 55:6-7
6 Seek ye Jehovah while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto Jehovah, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Sin of Sodom

The Sin of Sodom

Then there is the story of the destruction of the city of Sodom, (Genesis 18:16-19:29). Sodom has given its name to the now somewhat quaint-sounding term ‘Sodomy’, which originally meant a specific male homosexual sex act. Eventually it was expanded to mean any form of sexual expression which happened to be illegal, including things that married heterosexual couples do every day.

However, a close reading reveals the name to be a bit of a misnomer. To start off, Sodom is described simply as a ‘wicked’ place. Lot, Abraham’s nephew, goes to live there to see if even one righteous person can be found there. The sexual theme starts when two disguised angels visit Lot. A mob, described as consisting of the men of the city, ‘both young and old’, attacks Lot’s house and demands that Lot allow them to ‘know’ (in the language of the KJV) the two men. To ‘know’ is, of course, the famous KJV circumlocution for having sexual intercourse.

The next passage bears closer examination. Lot (Gen 19:8) asks the mob to ‘do’ his two virgin daughters instead, but not the two guests, ‘for … they came under the shadow of my roof.’ The rest of the story is well-known: divine wrath ensues, the mob is blinded, the cities of the plain are destroyed by fire and brimstone while Lot and his family flee, Lot’s wife is turned to a pillar of salt because she looks back, and only Lot and his daughters escape. In an often ignored coda to this story, Lot’s daughters have incest with him by getting him intoxicated, (Gen 19:31), presumably to repopulate the country; a similar motif is found in the story of Noah. As in other Biblical narratives, even the heroes end up committing horrendous sins, driven by circumstances. But many ignore the entire context of the story in the rush to justify their own bigotry.

The sin of the city of Sodom was the originally considered to be the violation of the rights of Lot’s guests. Defining the ‘sin of Sodom’ to be male homosexuality was a later interpretation, which was made by medieval Jewish and Christian writers, as a reaction to Pagan acceptance of homosexuality. Near Eastern hospitality, to this day, implies a responsibility to protect guests under one’s roof. The fact that Lot was ready to make a huge sacrifice by offering up his virgin daughters to the mob instead of his guests underlines this.

There is abundant Haggadah, ancient Jewish folklore, which tells of the cruelty of Sodom to strangers, and their mistreatment of the poor and homeless. Among other stories, travelers are given gold but not food; when they starve to death, everything is stolen including the gold and the clothes off their backs, and their bodies are left to rot. One of Lot’s unfortunate daughters is burned to death for the crime of giving a starving man food. Another woman who assists a poor man is smeared with honey and left to be stung to death by bees. Some of these stories are suffused with dark comedic twists. A poor man is assaulted and robbed. Eliezar, a servant of Abraham, is hit on the head when he intervenes. A judge rules that he must pay his assailant for medical treatment! (Bleeding was considered a surgical procedure). Eliezar then hits the judge on the head, drawing blood, and tells the judge to pay his fine. See Ginzburg’s Legends of the Jews and Polano’s The Talmud: Selections, for many more stories along the same lines. After reading these, I guarantee you’ll be rooting for the Lord to rain down the brimstone on the cities of the plain…

There are also numerous Biblical passages warning about mistreating strangers, (with the story of Lot being implied), for instance this one in the NT: “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” [Heb. 13:2]

Between the original concept of a violation of the law of hospitality and the medieval focus on a particular sexual act, there is an intermediate stage where Sodom was criticized for other reasons entirely. Where Sodom is mentioned in later books of the Tanach and in the New Testament, it is used as an example of a city which was corrupted by luxury, lacking in values such as charity and humility. Nowhere is this made clearer than in Ezekiel 16:48-50, where Ezekiel, speaking for ‘the Lord God’, enumerates the sins of Sodom: “Saith the Lord GOD…Behold, this was the iniquity of … Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness … neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good”.

Note that in this context ‘abomination’ means human sacrifice and idol worship, not shared tax breaks for long-term same-sex couples, or sexual practices you can see on cable after 10 o’clock. Furthermore, ‘abomination’ is at the end of the laundry list. The primary sin of Sodom, by this account, was that their society was materialistic, greedy and uncharitable. Social and economic justice is a thread that runs through the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament alike, and it is not difficult to extrapolate this to modern struggles for equality, such as those of LGBT people. When governmental and religious institutions and their leaders perpetuate oppression, it would not be farfetched to say that they are committing the actual sin of Sodom.

Jude 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication (They have changed the meanings of the words over the centuries the 17th century meaning of fornication or porneia in English meant idolatry and prostitution, it has been changed.), and going after strange flesh (Idolatry or going after another species of flesh. Sodom was completely ungodly they were cruel people and they tried to rape angels which is the reference to strange flesh non-human flesh (aka not gay)), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2 Peter 6 and having reduced [the] cities of Sodom and Gomorrha (S&G complete rebelled against God’s will. If someone came into those cities, they would beat them and laugh at them, rob them, chain them and watch them starve to death, not to mention going after strange flesh (angels). They raped and kill etc. In fact Lot’s daughter got killed by a Sodomite, because she felt compassion for a beggar that they chained up to allow him to starve and die. (Jasher 18:11 – 19:53)) to ashes, condemned [them] with an overthrow, setting [them as] an example to those that should [afterwards] live an ungodly life;

Ezekiel 16:49 – 50
[This is several different translations all together as I have added the different terms in parenthesis. Notice not one mentions homosexuality.]
Behold, this was the iniquity (guilt/sin) of you sister Sodom; pride (arrogance), fullness of bread (excess of food), and prosperous ease (abundance of idleness) was in here and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen (aid) the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

Genesis 19
1 And in the evening there came two [a]Angels to Sodom: and Lot sat at the gate of Sodom, and Lot saw them, and rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face to the ground.

2 And he said, See my lords, I pray you turn in now into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early and go your ways. Who said, Nay, but we will abide in the street all night.

3 Then [b]he pressed upon them earnestly (Why do you think Lot bid them to not stay in the streets? He was trying to protect them from what is spoken of in Jasher they raped travelers, starved them, stole from them, and etc. every kind of cruelty you could imagine.), and they turned in to him, and came to his house, and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they [c]did eat.

[Along with all the cruelty they showed travelers, they also killed one of Lot’s daughters for helping a man in need of food. They raped their own women and swapped them off several times a year. The sin of Sodom was not homosexuality by any means.]

Genesis 19
4 But before they went to bed, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom compassed the house round about, from the young even to the old, [d]all the people from all quarters.

5 Who crying unto Lot said to him, Where are the men, which came to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

6 Then Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, my brethren, do not so wickedly.

8 Behold now, I have two [e]daughters, which have not known man: them will I bring out now unto you, and do them as seemeth you good: only unto these men do nothing: [f]for therefore are they come under the shadow of my roof.

9 Then they said, Away hence: and they said, He is come alone as a stranger, and shall he judge and rule? we will now deal worse with thee than with them. So they pressed sore upon Lot himself, and came to break the door.

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

[Lot offered them his daughters, because they were human at the very least, as well as in those times, the protection you were to have over the guests of your house. Near Eastern hospitality, to this day, implies a responsibility to protect guests under one’s roof. The fact that Lot was ready to make a huge sacrifice by offering up his virgin daughters to the mob instead of his guests underlines this.]

Demons and evil spirits

Where do “evil spirits” or “demons” come from? Some think they are fallen angels, deprived of their angelic bodies. Some say they don’t exist. Peter tells us that the angels that sinned are now “cast down to hell [Greek, tartaroo or tartarus, meaning a deep abyss],” where they are “delivered into chains of darkness, reserved unto judgment” (2 Pet.2:4). If the angels which sinned are currently bound in chains, then what are demonic these spirits that roam the earth?

Evil spirits are not the same thing as “fallen angels.” Seeing as fallen angels are now bound in chains of darkness until the day of their judgment, we have to look for another explanation consistent with the Scripture to explain the existence of demon spirits which have no corporeal body. Where do “evil spirits” come from, those spirits called “demons” in the Scriptures?

Enoch told us exactly who these spirits are —

“But now the giants who are born from the (union of) the spirits and the flesh shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, because their dwelling shall be upon the earth and inside the earth. Evil spirits have come out of their bodies. Because from the day that they were created from the holy ones they became the Watchers (Nephilim): their first origin is the spiritual foundation. They will become evil upon the earth and shall be called evil spirits. The dwelling of the spiritual beings of heaven is heaven; but the dwelling of the spirits of the earth, which are born upon the earth, is in the earth” (Enoch 15:8-10).

Jesus spoke of these evil spirits, He cast out many demons from people, during His time on this earth, and gave the same authority to His children. He encountered an extremely violent and super-strong demon possessed men who dwelt among the tombs near the Sea of Galilee.

28And when he was come on the other side of the water, into the country of the Gerasens, there met him two that were possessed with devils, coming out of the sepulchres, exceeding fierce, so that none could pass by that way. 29And behold they cried out, saying: What have we to do with thee, Jesus Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? 30And there was, not far from them, an herd of many swine feeding. 31And the devils besought him, saying: If thou cast us out hence, send us into the herd of swine. 32And he said to them: Go. But they going out went into the swine, and behold the whole herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea: and they perished in the waters (Matthew 8:28-32). [Mark 5:1-13; Luke 8:26-33]

As God’s children, with the Holy Spirit of God dwelling within us (Rom.8:9-10; 5:32), we do not have to fear or be afraid of these demonic spirits. Jesus gave His disciples power and authority to cast out demons, just as He did, showing us that we can do the same!

1AND having called his twelve disciples together, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases, and all manner of infirmities (Matt.10:1).

This commission and charge was an on-going commission and commandment for the Church of God. In His final instructions to the disciples, Jesus declared:

15And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned. 17And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues. 18They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:15-18). [Mathew 28:16-20]

The existence of these evil spirits, derived from the fallen angels mating with human women, is a fact which modern psychiatry cannot explain. Modern psychiatrists cannot fathom the real explanation of “split personalities,” “multiple personalities,” all inhabiting the same person, or the ability of such people to speak in total foreign languages which they have never heard or learned, or how they can have knowledge of previous “lives,” or existences.

Demonic possession and influence explains all of these puzzling, mysterious phenomena! These are the wicked “spirits” of the deceased “giants” who once roamed the earth!

On the other hand, it is also possible for fallen angels to deceive, delude, and take over the bodies of human beings — that is, those fallen angels which have not already been bound in chains. Apparently multiple millions of angels followed Lucifer in his original rebellion (Rev.12:3). Many of them still occupy high spiritual offices on this earth, under their “god” Satan (Eph.6:10-18; Eph.2:2; 2 Cor.4:4).

Enoch and Jasher are Scripture

If you believe as I do that the scriptures are divinely inspired by God, God seems to be endorsing these two books. As we are told, in the mouth of two or three witnesses you can establish if a thing is true are not.

Jasher means (Hebrew) “upright”, true, just account

The name refers to the fact that the record, facts, and history are upright, correct, and thus trustworthy.

It is referenced in:

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself onb its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

2 Samuel 1:18 and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):

2 Timothy 3:8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth.

Inferred here talking about Jannes and Jambres who opposed Moses. The only way Paul could have known this is through the book of Jasher.

Enoch was considered scripture and has been in and out of the Bible several times.

There are at least a hundred references in the New Testament that find precedence nowhere else in the Bible except the book of Enoch

  • Quoted by Jesus, Peter, and Jude
  • Widely known and read in the 1st Century
  • Viewed as Scripture by early Church Fathers
  • Still in Ethiopian Coptic Bible
  • Found in Dead Sea Scrolls

Enoch 1

  1. The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble [day of Tribulation]; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly. Enoch, a righteous man, who was (1) with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me. 2. From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period (also stated as remote [future]), on account of the elect.

These books together tell us more about the fallen angels which is needed for a time as we are living in the last generation. God has preserved these books for us.

Fallen Angels

We are told that 1/3 of the angels fell with Lucifer, other than that we don’t know much from the 66 books. We do know that the serpent Lucifer as his name has been translated. In Genesis 3:13-15 He deceived Adam and Eve and God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

You just read that as I did, and I have read it many times, but did you really notice that it said that the devil has offspring! The fallen angels came down and chose wives for themselves, they forced them to be with them, this was not an agreement with the women.

Pastors are taught that these angels which were called the sons of God in Genesis are, are the sons of Cain and the good ones are the sons of Seth. That is not correct. Cousins don’t produce 17’ to 36’ foot giants. These were fallen angels come down to take human women. The Amorites where known to start at about 35’.

Jude and 2 Peter

Jude and 2 Peter

Jude King James Version (KJV)

(This book is written for the church)

1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (The Pharisee, were against Jesus and didn’t accept their own books, they only accepted 24 of the 70. They also removed books from the Hebrew Tanach in AD 90 at the Council of Jamnia. Which is just like the Protestants only accepting 66 instead of the 86 books. False people in the church (Matthew 13:24-30) If God destroyed all the evil people in church; he would destroy the good as well. Parable of the wheat and tares.)

4 For there are certain men crept in (to the church these people are carnal) unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, (he is telling us that there are snakes in the church) turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (this means lawlessness, things that are not of God), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (There is a strong theology taught in the protestant church that states: all you need is faith, but that is not all we need, we need to confess our sins to God and not a preacher or priest, we need a relationship with Jesus Christ and a desire to be like Him.)

5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt (this is spiritually where Jesus is crucified, when the people of God were in Egypt they were lead astray spiritually, (Rev. 11:7-8) this would be the great city of Jerusalem the Jews never accepted Christ. This rebelliousness is also spoke of in Esdras 2.17-20.), afterward destroyed them that believed not.

6 And the angels which kept not their first estate (Reference from Enoch and Genesis 6), but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains (angels being in chains is found nowhere in the current accepted canon, the only book that speaks of this is in the book of Enoch) under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Everlasting chains, but unto the judgment of the great day, is contradicting, because it seems that the English translations are not correct. It is along the same lines as the use of aionos in the Greek. It says “Jonah was in the belly of the whale for aionos,” which was three days, but they use the same term in English as everlasting, forever, or eternal. It doesn’t make sense.)

7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication (They have changed the meanings of the words over the centuries the 17th century meaning of fornication or porneia in English meant idolatry and prostitution, it has been changed.), and going after strange flesh (Idolatry or going after another species of flesh. Sodom was completely ungodly they were cruel people and they tried to rape angels which is the reference to strange flesh non-human flesh (aka not gay)), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion (God’s government), and speak evil of dignities (God’s prophets).

9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. (This has a quote from the Assumption of Moses or Testament of Moses.)

10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. (This is talking about the flesh, saying that the flesh is the weakest of the three; mind, body, and spirit. That’s why Jesus said that the spirit is willing but the body is weak.)

11 Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain (kill those of true faith), and ran greedily after the error of Balaam (money all these prosperity preachers or rich preachers, they make a profit from the actual church; 2 Peter 2:3 “will they make merchandise of you.”) for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds (people) they are without water (God’s Word), carried about of winds (bad doctrine); trees (humans) whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; (these people pretend to be Christians, but they have no fruit, they have a form of faith but they don’t have faith in the truth)

13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame (preachers that can’t even preach the gospel on live TV i.e. Joel Osteen); wandering stars (angels), to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever (here again is the term aionos which does not mean forever, it means a certain period of time).

14 And Enoch (Jude quotes Enoch) also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, (Scholars and Pharisees say that these books are not of God, but they are not Christians, they are the ungodly he is warning us would creep in the church.)

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.

16 These are murmurers (mockers), complainers, walking after their own lusts (Lust means desire, the word lust is used for good and bad desire, but if it is good they put desire and if it is bad the put lust. An ungodly lust would be a want to kill someone. When people think of lust now days, they think it has to do with something sensual or sexual.); and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.

17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. (Lust as stated above.)

19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual (selfish), having not the Spirit.

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

2 Peter 1

19 And we have the prophetic word [made] surer, to which ye do well taking heed (as to a lamp shining in an obscure place) until [the] day dawn and [the] morning star arise in your hearts;

20 knowing this first, that [the scope of] no prophecy of scripture is had from its own particular interpretation,

21 for prophecy was not ever uttered by [the] will of man, but holy men of God spake under the power of [the] Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 2

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, as there shall be also among you false teachers, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, and deny the Lord that bought them, bring upon themselves swift destruction;

2 and many shall follow their dissolute/pernicious ways, through whom the way of the truth shall be blasphemed.

3 And through covetousness, with feigned (pretended; insincere) words, will they make merchandise of you (Christians): for whom judgment of old is not idle, and their destruction slumbers not.

4 For if God spared not [the] angels who had sinned, but having cast them down to the deepest pit (this is actually tartarus, in the English, when it says Hell, they are actually referring to three different words from the Greek. How can you use one word to mean three different places? We have been deceived by the translations. That is another topic I’m looking into.) of gloom has delivered them to chains of darkness [to be] kept for judgment;

5 and spared not [the] old world, but preserved Noe (Noah), [the] eighth, a preacher of righteousness, having brought in [the] flood upon [the] world of [the] ungodly;

6 and having reduced [the] cities of Sodom and Gomorrha (S&G complete rebelled against God’s will. If someone came into those cities, they would beat them and laugh at them, rob them, chain them and watch them starve to death, not to mention going after strange flesh (angels). They raped and kill etc. In fact Lot’s daughter got killed by a Sodomite, because she felt compassion for a beggar that they chained up to allow him to starve and die. (Jasher 18:11 – 19:53)) to ashes, condemned [them] with an overthrow, setting [them as] an example to those that should [afterwards] live an ungodly life;

7 and saved righteous Lot, distressed with the abandoned conversation of the godless,

8 for the righteous man through seeing and hearing, dwelling among them, tormented [his] righteous soul day after day with [their] lawless works,

9 [the] Lord knows [how] to deliver the godly out of trial, and to keep [the] unjust to [the] day of judgment [to be] punished;

10 and specially those who walk after the flesh in [the] lust of uncleanness, and despise lordship (God’s Government). Bold [are they], self-willed; they do not fear speaking injuriously of dignities: (Like the devil speaking against God, Goliath against Israel, or the Pharisees against the Holy Prophets.)

11 when angels, who are greater in might and power, do not bring against them, before the Lord, an injurious charge. (Jude 9)

12 But these, as natural animals without reason, made to be caught and destroyed, speaking injuriously in things they are ignorant of, shall also perish in their own corruption, (Jude 10)

13 receiving [the] reward of unrighteousness; accounting ephemeral indulgence pleasure; spots and blemishes, rioting in their own deceits, feasting with you; (Jude 12)

14 having eyes full of adultery (this has nothing to do with sex, it means always trying to steal your neighbors things be it wife or whatever), and that cease not from sin, alluring unestablished souls; having a heart practiced in covetousness, children of curse;

15 having left [the] straight way they have gone astray, having followed in the path of Balaam [the son] of Bosor, who loved [the] reward of unrighteousness;

16 but had reproof of his own wickedness—[the] dumb ass (the story of Balaam’s donkey) speaking with man’s voice forbad the folly of the prophet.

17 These are springs without water, and mists driven by storm, to whom the gloom of darkness is reserved [for ever].

18 For [while] speaking great highflown words of vanity, they allure with [the] lusts of [the] flesh, by dissoluteness, those who have just fled those who walk in error,

19 promising them liberty, while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a man is subdued, by him is he also brought into slavery. (These are most of the preachers on TV and radio)

20 For if after having escaped the pollutions of the world through [the] knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, again entangled, they are subdued by these, their last state is worse than the first.

21 For it were better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known [it] to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.

22 But that [word] of the true proverb has happened to them: [The] dog [has] turned back to his own vomit; and, [The] washed sow to [her] rolling in mud. (Reference from Proverb 26:11 and Ahikar 7:27 http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/fbe/fbe265.htm There are a lot of other books on this sight, it is full of information; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahiqar)

2 Peter 3

1 This, a second letter, beloved, I already write to you, in [both] which I stir up, in the way of putting you in remembrance, your pure mind,

2 to be mindful of the words spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of the Lord and Saviour by your apostles;

3 knowing this first, that there shall come at [the] close of the days mockers with mocking, walking according to their own lusts (Lust as explained earlier),

4 and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for from the time the fathers fell asleep all things remain thus from [the] beginning of [the] creation.

5 For this is hidden from them through their own wilfulness, that heavens were of old, and an earth, having its subsistence out of water and in water, by the word of God,

6 through which [waters] the then world, deluged with water, perished. (so they don’t believe in the flood)

7 But the present heavens and the earth by his word are laid up in store, kept for fire unto a day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

8 But let not this one thing be hidden from you, beloved, that one day with [the] Lord [is] as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 [The] Lord does not delay his promise, as some account of delay, but is longsuffering towards you, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of [the] Lord will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a rushing noise, and [the] elements, burning with heat, shall be dissolved, and [the] earth and the works in it shall be burnt up.

11 All these things then being to be dissolved, what ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness,

12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, by reason of which [the] heavens, being on fire, shall be dissolved, and [the] elements, burning with heat, shall melt?

13 But, according to his promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, as ye wait for these things, be diligent to be found of him in peace, without spot and blameless;

15 and account the longsuffering of our Lord [to be] salvation; according as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him,

16 as also in all [his] epistles, speaking in them of these things; among which some things are hard to be understood, which the untaught and ill-established wrest, as also the other scriptures, to their own destruction.

17 *Ye* therefore, beloved, knowing [these] things before, take care lest, being led away along with the error of the wicked, ye should fall from your own stedfastness:

18 but grow in grace, and in [the] knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and to [the] day of eternity. Amen.

History tidbit:

(Counsel of Laodicea wanted to remove revelation and the book of Enoch and they succeeded with removing Enoch but not Revelation. They wanted to remove Revelation from the Bible, because the worst of the churches mentioned in Revelation was the Church of Laodicea, it condemned them so they wanted it taken out. The Jews Pharisees wanted to remove books in the counsel of Jamnia. John 5:38-40 Jesus is speaking to the Pharisees here, they think they have salvation through the scriptures. There are churches today that say this, that if you just have faith you will be saved. When in all actuality it takes faith, a relationship with Jesus Christ, a desire to be like Him, confessing your sins to God, and the works of that which God moves you to do for the Kingdom of Heaven.)

[Here are some notes I got from another guy who is researching the same things I am.]

Here is what Jude and Peter were REALLY trying to tell us about the End Times and what YOU need to know!

cloud = people

water = Bible

wind = bad doctrine

Egypt / Sodom = Spiritually fallen away (Revelation 11:7-8). http://www.wor.org/Books/s/Sodom.htm

Ephesians 6 = Wisdom of Solomon 5.

Jude 1 = Book of Enoch + Assumptions of Moses. http://www.godrules.net/library/kjv/k… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assumpti… http://www.godrules.net/library/kjvst…

Devil disguises angel of light = Comes from the Pseudopigraphical Book: Life of Adam and Eve.

This is how the Devil deceived the Church:

1. Change the meanings of “lower base nature” with “sexuality” and “sensuality”.

2. Change the meanings of “against nature” with “gay and lesbian”, rather than “cross-breading: angels/humans, animals/humans, etc”

3. Change the meanings of “fornication” to mean “sex before marriage” rather than “idolatry/prostitution”

4. Change what scripture is by saying only 66 Books are the scripture and rejecting the rest (Septuagint, Book of Enoch, Book of Jubilees, etc).

2 Peter 1:21 – For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man.

2 Peter 2:11 = assumption of Moses is mentioned. And he also says these are “give by God, as men moved by Holy Ghost”.

Refers to Jude material and Assumption of Moses in chapter 2 (Genesis/Assumption Moses – Exodus/Enoch). It has happened unto them according to the true proverb.. Dog turns to own vomit – Proverbs. And swine to wallow = Ahikar 7:1 (Base men in church turn to their theology).

Both Jude and Peter quoting from Pseudopigraphical books.

Peter is saying, I and Jude are reading these Apocryphal and Pseudopigraphical books. Are you reading them? Or are you like a dog returning to its own vomit (theology)?

2 Peter 3:1 – Stir pure minds into remembrance.. Holy Prophets we have forgotten. http://www.godrules.net/library/kjv/k…

He is saying the mystery of these books will be lost.. And removed.. And has it happened? Yes.. We have forgotten these Apocryphal books.

How Church Leaders today treat Bible same way as Pharisees did in Jesus’ time: http://www.godrules.net/library/kjv/k…

Why doesn’t God just remove evil people from Churches? Jesus parable here explains why: http://www.godrules.net/library/kjv/k…

Peter says No prophecy came of will of man in 2 Peter 1:20-21, but then he clearly writes something with the same framework as Jude wrote, and vaguely in the process refers to the Assumption of Moses and the Book of Enoch by Inference.. And in 2 Peter 2:22 we read:

“But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. ”

These two sayings are from Proverbs 26:11 (dog eating vomit) and Ahikar 7:27 (pig clean wallows in mud again) – http://www.godrules.net/library/kjv/k…

So, Peter quotes a Apocryphal book in Ahikar and then also mentions indirectly the Assumption of Moses and also writes several lines that are very similar to Jude (and Jude quotes Book of Enoch).

THIS is ALL AFTER he said in 2 Peter 1:20-21, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost.”

If you knew that the Apocrypha was not scripture, why would you say all prophecy is from God and then quote and indirectly refer to books that are Apocryphal?

You wouldn’t.. This is the point.. Peter and Jude thought all these Apocryphal Books are scripture!

FURTHER, he says in 2 Peter 3:1-2, ” I now write unto you; in [both] which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: ”

This puts the nail in the coffin. It is clear that both Peter and Jude believe that the Book of Enoch, Assumption of Moses and even the Story of Ahikar are scripture.

And its clear, that the Church Leaders have done the same error that the Pharisees did, in trying to remove certain books from their Canon, for the carnal mind cannot be subject to God’s Word.
