Scripture:- Genesis 6
Topic:- The Real Story Angels And Demons 
Text:- Genesis 6:4
In 2002 the British newspaper, The Sunday Telegraph reported that the Vatican had banned the veneration of those angels who do not appear in the authorised texts of the Bible.
This was an attempt to counter the influence of unnamed New Age groups who were allegedly recruiting new members within the Roman Catholic Church.
In future, prayers were only to be directed to the three archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael who are mentioned in the Bible.
According to the apocryphal and banned Book of Enoch these were the angelic beings responsible for binding the wicked fallen angels or Watchers who had transgressed God’s law.
The news report said that the early Church had excluded the book, attributed to the Old Testament Prophet and patriarch Enoch, from the authorised version of the Bible because it described these fallen angels and their activities.
A. Who are the Watchers or fallen angels and why was the early Church and the modern Vatican so concerned about them:
Traditionally the Ben Eloha or ‘sons of God’ numbered several hundred and they descended to Earth on Mount Harmon. Significantly this was a sacred place to both the Canaanites and the Hebrews who invaded their land. In later times shrines to the gods Baal, Zeus, Helios and Pan and the goddess Astarte were built on its slopes. See Genesis 6:1-4.
These Ben Elohim or ‘fallen angels’ were also known as the Watchers, the Grigori and the Irin. In Jewish mythology the Grigori were originally a superior order of angels who dwelt in the highest heaven with God and resembled human beings in their appearance.
The title ‘Watcher’ simply means ‘one who watches’, ‘those who watch’, ‘those who are awake’ or ‘those who do not sleep’. These titles reflect the unique relationship between the Watchers and the human race since ancient times.
In the esoteric Luciferian tradition they were a special elite order of angelic beings created by God to be earthly shepherds of the first primitive humans. It was their task to observe and watch over the emerging human species and report back on their progress.
However they were confined by the divine prime directive not to interfere in human evolution. Unfortunately they decided to ignore God’s command and defy His orders and become teachers to the human race, with unfortunate repercussions for both themselves and humanity.
Most of the information we have about the Watchers and their activities comes from the apocryphal Book of Enoch. In the orthodox Bible the prophet Enoch, from the Hebrew ‘hanokh’ or instructor, is a mysterious figure.
In Genesis, he is described as the son of Cain, the “first murderer,” and the first city built by his father is named after him. See Genesis 4:16-23
Further in Genesis, and several generations later, Enoch is named as the son of Jared, and it is during his lifetime that the Watchers either arrive or incarnate in human bodies. See Genesis 5:18-19.
In the apocryphal Book of Jubilee, allegedly dictated by “an angel of the Lord” to Moses on Mount Sinai when he also received the Ten Commandments, it says that Enoch was “the first among men that are born on Earth [sic] who learn writing, knowledge and wisdom.” It says that Enoch wrote down “the signs of Heaven” (the zodiac signs) according to their months in a book.
This was so human beings would know the seasons of the years in relation to the order of the months and their respective stellar and planetary influences. The indication is that Enoch received this information from extraterrestrial angelic sources, i.e. the Watchers, and therefore he was a cultural exemplar.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, I shall know the truth and the truth shall make me free, let Your truth make me free indeed henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Lovely Monday!
