The book of the dream visions of Enoch.
The chronological source of
the book of Enoch from when it was first penned has been in dispute since its
discovery in the
The book of Enoch we have today is an accumulation of five books all written by Enoch the seventh from Adam as follows:
The Book of the Watchers (Enoch 1 – 36)
The Book of Parables of Enoch (Enoch 37 – 71)
Book of the Heavenly Luminaries (Enoch 72 – 82)
The Book of Dream Visions (Enoch 83 – 90) of which this commentary is based on.
The Epistle of Enoch ( Enoch 91 – 108)
Personal note to the reader:
The best thing is to open the book of Enoch to these chapters and read them side by side and test what I've written. I chose these chapters because to my knowledge no one has attempted to interpret them. Chapter 89 verses 59 to 77 and the whole of chapter 90 cover the "church" age of 2000 years. The time line I've drawn of chapter 93 Click here to view is like the whole picture and the previous chapters are the detail if you look carefully. Chapter 92 is prophetic of messiah.
My calendar commentaries are even more intense and very controversial. However I simply followed the text of the book of Enoch chapters 72 to 82 and let the text speak for itself not my own vain imaginations or pre conceived ideas instilled from a western mentality on how the txt should be interpreted.

7000 years of the history of the Word.
In Chapter 83 of the book of Enoch, Enoch receives a dream that the earth is going to be destroyed by a flood Gen 6:13. Chapter 84 is Enoch’s prayer of intercession that God would leave a remnant on the earth and save them from the coming destruction. Chapter 85 onwards is what I want to focus on.
Here God/El starts to reveal the history of the world from the creation of Adam and Eve, their fall right up to the new heaven and new earth in perfect chronological order. I will attempt here to interpret the analogy of the animals and what they represent from the birds of the air to the beasts of the field clean and unclean.
First is mentioned a white bull and a heifer Adam and Eve. Gen 2:7/Gen 2:21. There are two bulls one black/Cain and the other red/Abel. Cain being the first born which matches Genesis 4:1. In verse 4 the black bull gored the red one, slew it/killed Abel: Gen 4:8. Verse 5; the heifer/Eve went with the black bull/Cain and many Oxen proceeded from him; the oxen being the descendants of Cain Gen -26. Verse 6 now calls the heifer/eve a cow and she leaves Cain the black bull in pursuit of the red bull Abel but can’t find him and laments/cries on not being able to find Abel. Verse 7 the first bull/Adam no longer white, comforts the cow/ Eve and her grief for the loss/death of her son is abased. Then Eve gives birth to another White bull/Seth from Adam and after that she bares many more bulls and black cows males and females... Verses 9 and 10 are the descendants of Seth.
Verse five seems to contradict the book of Genesis and Enoch chapter six. Or does it? Let’s take a closer look at the text then compare this with the book of Genesis. Verse four agrees with the book of Genesis but verse five states this: The heifer/Eve went with the black bull/Cain and many Oxen proceeded from him. Eve went with Cain and his descendants came from Eve. This would explain a lot of unanswered questions in the genealogies of Cain and their origins. Eve may have boar Cain a female and when she was of age Cain took her for his wife. This may explain the origins of Cain’s wife: And Cain knew his wife Gen 4:17. That’s been a mystery for a long time. Note: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. Gen 5:5...According to the text man kind lived a lot longer than and ten before the flood so a generation lived more than seventy years.
Verse one is the fall of Lucifer/Satan symbolised as a fallen star. It strikes the earth and rises up to go to the descendants of Cain the Oxen. This seems to contradict the book of Genesis and Enoch chapter six once again. Or does it? Let’s take a closer look at the text once again then compare this with the book of Genesis. One thing to note is the timing of this event of the fallen star/Satan cast out of Heaven. This according to the text occurs in the days of Cain. Again is this a contradiction against the book of Genesis? Once again let’s take a closer look. Verse two says that the black oxen/descendants of Cain were rounded up by this star that fell and changed their pasture and stalls. Pasture is the food or teaching they received and stalls their inhabitants/homes. Cities for the first time appeared with walls around them with Satan in the flesh ruling the descendants of Cain. Satan as a false god on the earth. Verse three we see the descent of the Watchers as in chapter 6 of the book of Enoch and Gen 6:1-4. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God (Angels/Watchers/stars) saw the daughters of men/Cain that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants/nephilim in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
The stars/Watchers became bulls/men and taught the cattle/cows and oxen/descendants of Cain the secrets of heaven and entered/sexual relations with the daughters of men/cows of the oxen as mentioned in Enoch 8:1-3. The elephants, camels and asses are the offspring of the fallen watchers, the nephilim giants of old men of renown found in modern day Greek and Latin mythology.
Vision of the The flood.
In verse two Enoch seems to be on the earth as he now looks up to heaven and he sees seven arch angels descend from heaven four in front and three behind them. One of the three behind them takes Enoch by the hand and raises him up with them into the heavens Gen 5:24. Enoch is raised up unto a high place and sees a tower raised high above the earth. Not in the earth but above it. One of the three angels that took Enoch instructs him to remain in this place until the destruction of the Nephilim the elephants, camels and asses, the watchers the stars that fell/ Jude 6 and the oxen the male descendants of Cain.
One of the first four angels that descended with the seven seized the first star that had fallen/Satan and cast him into the abyss. Then another angel of the seven put it into the hearts of the nephilim elephants. Camels and asses to turn against one another and to kill one another by the sword. Then one of the first four angels caused meteors to come down from heaven and stoned the flesh of the nephilim then the angel cast’s their spirits down to the abyss with the first star that had fallen/angel/watcher that had transgressed the command of the Lord of Spirits first and the watchers.
One of the first four angels
went to the white bull/Noah and instructed him of what was to come upon the
earth and Noah built the ark under the instructions of one of the four first
angels. The three bulls are Noah’s sons Shem Ham and Japheth Gen 6:14-22.
The enclosure in verse two is the earth and the lofty roof was the canopy of
water above the earth which our satellites now orbit at approximately 35’000
feet above the circle of the equator Gen 1:6-7. What Enoch sees here is
the canopy of water being released onto the earth in the form of a flood/rain
fall. Before the flood a mist watered the earth Gen 2:6. In verse two the seven
torrents or funnels/holes were where he saw the windows of heaven from above
open up and
Noah and his sons depart from the ark
The white Bull is Noah, white bull/Shem red bull/Japheth and the black bull/Ham. At the end of verse 9 Noah is taken from them/dies and the beginning of verse 10 Shem Ham and Japheth begin to repopulate the earth with the wives they took pre flood. A new kind came forth from these sons. Lions, Tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wild boars, foxes, squirrels, swine, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles and ravens but amongst them was born a white bull from the line of Shem/Abram Gen 11:26. In Verse 11 a wild ass/Ishmael is born and a white bull/Isaac Gen . Note Ishmael is depicted as a wild ass. Pre flood these asses were the off spring of the watchers/Nephilim so here there seems to be another outbreak of these giants and they multiplied at the end of the verse. Verse 12 explains the birth of Esau/black wild boar and Jacob/white sheep. The descendants of Esau grew and Jacob has twelve sheep/the twelve tribes/sons of Jacob/Israel Gen.25:24-35:18.
Joseph is sold into slavery.
Verse 13 one of the sheep was given up to the wild asses/Ishmaelites. We know through scripture that Joseph was
found in the pit by Midianites here depicted as wild
asses/descendants of Ishmael. Wolves are depicted as the Egyptians. Wild boars the descendants of Esau. Verses 13 and 14
depict Joseph being sold into slavery to the Egyptians by the Ishmaelites/wild asses Gen.37:28-36. The eleven sons

The Exodus and the crossing of the red sea.
Verse 21 these eyes of the wolves/Egyptians were blinded
and the sheep/children of Israel managed to escape with Moses leading them
under the power and anointing the rubbing in of the olive oil/anointing oil
into the skin symbolic of the Holy Spirit being poured out into Moses through Yeshua hence the change in the appearance of Moses face.. Verse
22 the Lord of the sheep Yeshua went with them as
their leader and all His sheep followed Him. Until they came
to a sea of water. Exodus 14:21-22. The lord of the sheep Yeshua parted the red sea over night and the children of
The wilderness experience and
Verse 28 is the Lord of the sheep/Yeshua
teaching the sheep through Moses and what Yeshua had
taught Moses right from the burning bush. The eyes of the sheep’s understanding
were opened through the good pasture/teaching
they received from above and they began to see. Then that sheep; Moses is
called up to
The reigns of King Saul and King David to Solomon.
God/El raises a Ram symbolic
of a king. King Saul. Saul destroys the nephilim
tribes but becomes proud and turns on his own people. God/El removes Saul and
replaces him with another ram/King David. The dogs/nephilim
tribes and gentile nations still oppress the sheep. Saul is killed by the dogs
in verse 47 and David takes the throne of
The post captivity period.
Verses 54 to 57 cover the restoration of the remnant from the
Babylonian and Assyrian captivities found in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggi, Zechariah and the book of Malachi. The return of
the remnant to Jerusalem, the re-building of the temple and repairing of the
walls of the city, and the restoration of the temple worship, the four hundred
years between Malachi to the gospel of Mathew. The Old Testament ended under
Persian rule then
Personal note to reader: After a great deal of prayer I felt moved by the Holy Spirit to read Proverbs chapter 1:22-33 concerning verse 58 which troubled me greatly concerning God’s character and Him laughing at our calamity.
Proverbs chapter 1:22-33
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
After reading Proverbs chapter 1:22-33 Enoch chapter 89:58 made a lot more sense as to why God did not listen to His peoples cry.
