Christians have embraced the book of 1 Enoch without first examining to see if it matches the Bible. The book of Enoch is a powerful tool for Satan since it opens the door to a plethora of beliefs and claims about UFOs, alien contact, and other such topics. It’s no surprise that gnostics love this book. Let’s look at some verses from the Pseudo Book of 1 Enoch:
The book of 1 Enoch mentions the angels teaching sin, magick, sorcery, the occult, and other forbidden knowledge.
“And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin.” 1 Enoch 10:8-9
Above, a fallen angel named Azazel caused us to sin, yet, in the Holy Bible:
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” Romans 5:12
The Pseudo Book does not agree with Scripture.
“and the fourth, who is set over the repentance unto hope of those who inherit eternal life, is named Phanuel.” 1 Enoch 40:9
Is that so?
“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.” John 3:16
Who will you trust for your Salvation, Jesus Christ or some angel named Phanuel?
If you are a futurist, what does the prophecy in Revelation of 1/3 of the angels/stars falling have to do with Genesis and the beginning of creation? I do not doubt that Revelation 12:4 refers to Jesus, but even if it is the future, it does not add up.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Revelation 12:4
1 Enoch tells us that God sent Uriel to Noah to tell him to hide himself and that the flood would come, but Genesis 6:13-16 says that God told Noah.
Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech,
and said to him:
‘ Go to Noah and tell him in my name “Hide thyself!” and reveal to him the end that is
approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come upon the
whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. 1 Enoch 10:1-2
Chapter 67 of 1 Enoch says that angels made the arc (wooden building), but Genesis and Hebrews and Genesis tells us that Noah made the arc.
And now the angels are making a wooden (building), and when they have completed that task I will place My hand upon it and preserve it, and there shall come forth from it the seed of life, and a change shall set in so that the earth will not remain without inhabitant.
From the Bible:
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. Genesis 6:13-16
Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he. Genesis 6:22
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Hebrews 11:7
1 Enoch 60 mentions the 500th year of Enoch’s life. The Bible tells us (Genesis 5:23) that Enoch lived 365 years.
In the year five hundred, in the seventh month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the life of Enoch. 1 Enoch 60:1
The height of these giants according to the Book of 1 Enoch is 3,000 ells. That is about TWO-MILES tall. These two-mile tall giants married and had children with women (Genesis 6:2, 4)? The serpent seed is another deception I will not get into now, but according to the doctrine of angels marrying and having sex with women, they would be two miles tall.
And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: 1 Enoch 7:2
Here is some information on the angel Phanuel mentioned in 1 Enoch.
As an angel, Phanuel is reputedly a member of the four Angels of Presence. In 1st Enoch, he is also listed as an angel of exorcism (he is heard “expelling Satans”). Phanuel has also been linked with the Angel of Penance mentioned in the Shepherd of Hermas.
Phanuel’s duties include bearing up God’s throne, ministering Truth, and serving as an angel of judgement. Furthermore, as The Book of Enoch attests, Phanuel is the angel of repentance unto hope of those who have inherited eternal life. Piecing together the writings of Enoch and the Revelation of John, Phanuel, along with Michael, Gabriel and Raphael will all drink from the ‘winepress of the Wrath of God’, strengthening them in that day, the Day of the Lord.
Phanuel’s arch-rival in the demonic hordes is Belial the Devil and father of lies. During the Battle of Armageddon, Phanuel will relinquish this rivalry, to fulfill the prophecy that Christ will destroy Belial with the word of His mouth. It is often thought that Phanuel is among the angelic voices in Revelation 11:15 saying “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”
According to The Book of Enoch, Phanuel is the fourth angel “set over repentance and those who hope to inherit eternal life” [Enoch, Chapter 40:9]. He is the fourth voice heard [Enoch, Chapter 40:7] “fending off the Satans (adversaries or accusers) and forbidding them to come before the Lord of spirits to accuse them who dwell on the earth”.
