The Coming of the Elohim Part 5
Information is compiled by GraceWatcher@aol.com


A long time ago, on a distant planet, a humanity comparable to ours existed. Those
people had discovered the secret of life and had successfully created in their
laboratories 100% synthetic beings, thanks to perfect mastery of DNA
(Deoxyribonucleic acid). These people explored the Universe in search of a planet
that would lend itself to the continuation of their experiments, sheltered from the
scandalized reactions of public opinion on their planet. They sent out space probes
all over our galaxy (which is also theirs), and finally discovered a planet possessing a
suitable atmosphere for the creation of life. They landed on this chosen planet and
proceeded with the construction of huge laboratories where they were able to freely
create living organisms. They started with plants and animals, and finally created
human beings "in their image".

As you have no doubt realized, this planet was actually Earth. Their story, as related
in the Bible does not refer to the work of an Almighty, Spiritual and Immaterial God,
but rather of a fantastic scientific experiment carried out by Beings known in the
original biblical Hebrew text as "Elohim". This word does not mean God as the
primitive translators would make us believe, but literally "Those who came from the
sky". Furthermore it is important to stress that this word is a plural, the singular being
"Eloha" which means "The one who came from the sky", which could lead to
confusion.

It is therefore a word meaning "those who came from the sky" that primitive men
dared to translate by a singular word "God". This is certainly the greatest fraud ever
realized on Earth.

Obviously, for primitive men, all that came from the sky just had to be Divine. For a
man from Malto Grosso, the landing of a helicopter can only be divine and
supernatural. He cannot imagine how humans could invent a machine, heavier than
air, which flies above the ground. For him this can only be supernatural.

As the Bible relates, the Elohim created men in their image, and later frightened by
the aggressiveness of their creation, they chased the humans from this laboratory
where everything was made easy for them, where they were fed and lodged without
any effort. This laboratory was called poetically the garden of Eden.

Later, the Sons of Elohim became interested in the charm of human women whom
they had created. This is textually written in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 1,
2 - "As 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 Elohim saw the daughters of men,
that they were fair; and they took them as wives of all which they chose".

A little further on, Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 4, it is specified that these unions were
not immaterial, impalpable, or supernatural, but truly physical, carnal and natural -
"When the Sons of Elohim had intercourse with the daughters of men and had
children by them, the Nephelin (mighty men) were on Earth, they were the heroes of
old, men of renown".

That says it all. The almighty and immaterial God in which we were lead to believe
did have human passions and carnal desires which were quite normal and natural.

It is also written in the Bible in Genesis III, 22, where men learned, thanks to a group
of scientists who loved them as their own children, that those who were considered
as God, were simply men like themselves, "Indeed the man has become like one of
us", thanks to science.

But the government of the planet of the Elohim continued to think it necessary to
destroy these dangerous people which had been created on Earth. The group who
believed that nothing but evil came out of man, presided on by one of the Elohim
named Satan, finally triumphed, and the destruction of all life on Earth came about by
the flood. The flood was in fact caused by the explosion of bombs similar to our
atomic bombs, but much more powerful.

Luckily for us, a small group of Elohim, believing that among men there were some
who were good and deserved to survive, protected certain ones in a spaceship
(Noah's Ark) along with a selection of the animal species.

A new implantation took place on Earth after the flood, and the Elohim discovered at
that point in time that they themselves had also been created by people who had
come from another planet, and were, like us, the result of a scientific laboratory
experiment. They then decided that never again would they seek to destroy
humanity, but rather they would allow men to evolve and progress by themselves.

They decided, just the same, to send messengers to mankind, with orders to teach
them their origin by creating the religions, and the Scriptures would serve as proof
when men would reach a level of scientific knowledge, sufficient to understand their
beginning without mysticism. Moses, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, and many others,
were amongst the messengers. Jesus was in fact the son of one of the Elohim and an
Earth woman, and so he could rightly say "My Father Who Art In Heaven".

We have the good fortune to live in the epoch where we can understand everything,
at long last, the age of Apocalypse in which we entered in 1945, Apocalypse being a
word badly translated, seeing that in Greek, it means "revelation" and not the end of
the world, as we have been led to believe. It is written that the Age of Apocalypse
will arrive when the Jews regain their country, and as you know, the State of Israel
has been rebuilt in our epoch. It is written, the Age of Apocalypse will arrive when
the blind recover their sight, and at present American scientists are now able to graft
an electronic prosthesis on the optic nerve, allowing the blind to recover their sight. It
is written the Age of Apocalypse will arrive when man will be able to project his
voice across the oceans, and right now, thanks to satellite telecommunication, one
can be heard instantly in the four corners of the Earth. It is written the Age of
Apocalypse will arrive when man could equal "God", able to create life from inert
matter, and now scientists have synthesized in their laboratory solely from chemical
products, the first human gene, which allows them to foresee the creation of a
synthetic human being, thus equaling their so called "God"!!!

This was the Message contained in the first book, but in much more detail of course.

In his second work, Rael related how he was contacted by the Elohim for the second
time in October 1975 in the Perigord region, France. From there, he was taken
away to one of their planets in a machine that we call a "flying saucer". On that
particular planet, Rael was able to witness extraordinary things which to us would
appear impossible or miraculous, just as to travel from Paris to New York in less
than four hours on the Concorde would have been impossible or miraculous to
Christopher Columbus who took several months to cover the same distance.

On this planet, Rael met with the great prophets, including Moses, Jesus, Buddha
and Mohammed, who have all been kept alive scientifically, and who will return to
Earth as announced in the scriptures, accompanied by some Elohim when the time
will come, This planet is called the Planet of the Eternals, where men live about seven
hundreds years, then die, and are recreated from one of their cells which had been
removed prior to their death. This unique cell contains the plan of the whole
individual, the genetic code.

Rael was present at the creation of a copy of himself. A single cell, taken from his
forehead, was processed through an enormous machine, and for a moments he was
face to face with another self. On this planet, there are also eight thousand four
hundred people from Earth who have been recreated after their death to live eternally
on the planet of the Eternals. These people have been chosen because their life was
dedicated to the progress, blossoming and fulfillment of humanity. An enormous
computer watches over each human being from conception to death, recording all his
actions. If the balance sheet shows more positive actions than negative ones at the
time of death, then the person is entitled to eternal life on the Planet of the eternal
Elohim in the company of the great prophets.

The Elohim also taught Rael a meditation technique permitting a total awakening of
the human mind which is only partially being used. The technique is called "Sensual
Meditation". It allows man to situate himself in relation to the infinitely small matter of
which he is composed and the infinitely great matter of which he is a part. The Elohim
explained to Rael that they were able to prove scientifically that on the atoms of the
atoms of which we are composed, there is intelligent life and other humanities, and
that the Earth and all the stars are only atoms of a gigantic being who could be
contemplating another sky, wondering if there is life on other planets. Thus they were
able to prove that the Universe is infinite and being infinite, could not have a center
which demonstrates that neither could there be a "God", nor could there be a soul
which leaves the body after death.

They also explained that for the intelligent beings living on a particle of our hand, for
example, one of our seconds represents many millions of years, just as our Earth life
represents no more than a billionth of a second for the gigantic being of which Earth
is but a particle. Therefore, communication cannot take place between the different
levels of infinity, thus abolishing any idea of a God having power over men.

Finally they explained that infinity exists not only in space, but also in time, that
nothing is created, nothing is lost, but that all is transformed; that everything that
exists has always existed and will always exist in the form of matter or energy. They
also proved that energy is not superior to matter as would those who believe in
spirits make us believe.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And after some days my son, Methuselah, took a wife for his son Lamech,
and she became pregnant by him and bore him a son. And his body was
white as snow and red as a rose; the hair of his head as white as
wool and his demdema (`long curly hair') beautiful; and as for his
eyes, when he opened them the whole house glowed like the sun ...
And his father, Lamech, was afraid of him and fled and went to
Methuselah his father; and he said to him, "I have begotten a strange
son. He is not like an (ordinary) human being, but he looks like the
children of the angels of heaven to me, his form is different, and he
is not like us ... It does not seem to me that he is of me, but of angels...'
These words form the opening lines to what must be one of the most
astonishing yet chilling fragments of religious text ever written.
They are the assertions of the antediluvian patriarch Enoch as he
describes the sheer distress and horror that accompanied the miraculous
birth of a son to his grandson, Lamech. The passage is taken from
the Book of Noah, an ancient script of Hebrew origin appended to the
more famous Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphal (i.e. falsely attributed)
work, considered by scholars to have been put together in stages during
the first half of the second century BC. The predicament conveyed
by these revealing lines seems manifestly clear: Lamech has recently
taken the hand of a woman who has given birth to a child that bears
no resemblance whatsoever to its immediate family. His appearance
is entirely unlike other "human beings", for his skin is white and
ruddy, his long curly hair is white and "beautiful", while his eyes
mysteriously enable the whole house to "glow like the sun".

From this specific appearance Lamech can only conclude that his wife
has been unfaithful, since the infant resembles "the children of the
angels" who are "not like US". This seems an extraordinary conclusion
on the part of Lamech, and a very strange subject for a religious
scribe to invent without good reason. If it can, for a moment, be
accepted that this account records an actual event in the history of
human kind, then it implies that the strange appearance of this child
matched the offspring of angels, and must by inference have been the
product of the union between a mortal woman and a divine "messenger",
a "heavenly intelligence" in the service of --d himself. Surely this
is impossible, for according to Judeo-Christian tradition angels are
incorporeal, having neither form nor substance. They are certainly
unable to reproduce by immaculate conception. If this is correct, then
the story of the birth of Lamech's strange son is in direct
contradiction to the rabbinical teachings of Judaism and the creed of
the Christian faith. Yet here it is, in print for all to see -
heretical words implying that angelic beings were able to produce
children by cohabiting with mortal women.

For any reader with an open
mind, this is a perplexing enigma further deepened by a more personal
portrayal of the birth of Lamech's son, which is to be found in a
poorly preserved fragment of religious text, discovered with many
other rolled brittle scrolls inside a cave overlooking the Dead
Sea in 1947. Known to scholars today as the Genesis Apocrypha, this
unique work was written in Aramaic, the Syriac language adopted by
the Hebrew scribes following the --ws' exile in Babylon during the
sixth century BC. Dating back to a similar age as the Book of Enoch,
the Dead Sea Scroll in question would have originally contained an
alternative, fuller account of the events featured in the Book of
Genesis; however, it was so badly damaged when found that only the
birth of Lamech's son, an account of Noah's Ark and the biblical
Flood, along with the wanderings of the patriarch Abraham, have
been preserved. The fragmentary text was translated by Nahman Avigad
and Yigael Yadin in I954 and published under the title A Genesis
Apocryphon two years later by the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

With respect to the account of the strange birth of Lamech's son, it
differs principally from the version given in the Book of Enoch, in
that the narrator has altered from the patriarch Enoch to Lamech
himself - it is he who recalls the scene in his own words. The
narrative begins just after the strange birth as Lamech starts voicing
his suspicions concerning the suspected infidelity of his wife, here
named as Bathenosh - and referred to also as his sister - for he says:
"Behold, I thought then within my heart that conception was (due) to
the Watchers and the Holy Ones ... and to the Nephilim . . . and
my heart was troubled within me because of this child."
Turning to his obviously distraught wife, Lamech makes her swear by
the Most High that she will tell him the truth and admit if she has
lain with anyone else. In reply she beseeches him to accept her word, saying:
"O my lord, 0 my [brother, remember l my pleasure! I swear to thee
by the Holy Great One, the king of [the heavens] ... that this seed
is yours and that [this] conception is from you. This fruit was planted
by you ... and by no stranger or Watcher or Son of Heaven ... I speak
to you truthfully-

It is clear that Lamech is accusing his wife of sleeping not with
angels in general, but with having had relations with a specific race
of divine beings known in Hebrew as 'irin' ('ir' in singular), meaning
"those who watch" or "those who are awake", which is translated into
Greek as 'egregoris or grigori', meaning watchers. These Watchers
feature in the main within the pages of pseudepigraphal and
apocryphal works of --wish origin, such as the Book of Enoch and the
Book of Jubilees. Their progeny, according to Hebrew tradition, are
named as nephilim, a Hebrew word meaning "those who have fallen" or
"the fallen ones", translated into Greek as 'gigantes', or "giants" -
a monstrous race featured in the Theogony of the hellenic writer
Hesiod (c. 907 Bc). As in the biblical account, this ancient Greek
work focuses on the creation of the world, the rise and fall of a
Golden Age, the coming of the giant races and finally a universal
flood. Bathenosh's touching plea of innocence to her husband and
brother Lamech comes across as most convincing, and provides
tantalizing evidence that this ancient account may contain some
grain of truth. Somehow it could just be based on a real life event
that occurred in a past age of mankind.

If so, then exactly who, or
what, were these Watchers and Nephilim who could lie with mortal
women and produce offspring recognizable by their physiological
traits alone? Are there any grounds whatsoever on which to con-
sider that these apocryphal stories were based on the miscegena-
tion between two different races of human beings, one of whom
has been misidentified or falsely equated with the angels of heaven?
If not, then exactly what were such stories meant to convey to thereader?

The Book of Enoch seems to provide an answer. Lamech, fearful
of his predicament, consults his father, Methuselah, who, unable to
alleviate the situation, embarks upon a journey to find his own
father Enoch, who has withdrawn from the world and now lives
among the angels'. After Methuselah has tracked him down in a
far-off land (referred to in the Genesis Apocryphon as 'Parwain'
or Paradise) and conveying the fears of his son Lamech, the ever-
righteous Enoch throws light on the situation when he states:
'I have already seen this matter in a vision and made it known to you.
For in the generation of Jared, my father, they [the angels] trans-
gressed the word of the Lord, (that is) the law of heaven. And behold,
they commit sin and transgress the commandment; they have united
themselves with women and commit sin together with them; and they
have married (wives) from among them, and begotten children by them
... And upon the earth they shall give birth to giants, not of the
spirit but of the flesh. There shall be a great plague ... and the
earth shall be washed clean (by "a deluge') from all the corruption.
Now, make known to your son Lamech that the son who has been born is
indeed righteous, and call his name Noah, for he shall be the remnant
for you; and he and his sons shall be saved from the corruption which
shall come upon the earth . . .

So the lid is finally lifted as the reader of the Book of Enoch is
told that some of the angels of heaven have succumbed to carnal sin
and taken wives from among mortal women. From this unholy union
have come flesh-and-blood offspring, giant in stature, who, it
must be presumed, match the description of the child born to Bathenosh.
This betrayal of the heavenly laws of G-- was seen as an
abomination that would bring only corruption and evil to the human
race, the punishment for which was to be a deluge to cleanse the world
of its wickedness.

The Sons of God ---------------

Theologians are more or less united in their opinion that the
widespread accounts of fallen angels cohabiting with mortal women,
like those included in the Book of Enoch, the Genesis Apocryphon and
similar texts, are no more than fanciful expansions of three verses to
be found in Chapter 6 of the Book of Genesis, squeezed between a
genealogical listing of the antediluvian patriarchs and a brief
account of Noahs Ark and the coming of the Flood. The first lines in
question, making up Chapter 6, verses 1-2, are indelibly imprinted in
my mind and read as follows:

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the
ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of --d saw
the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives
of all that they chose.

(JW There is more discussion of those verses by religious people than
any other verses in the Bible, as far as I know. Most people just
say they don't understand what they mean.) By sons of G-- the text
means heavenly angels, although the Hebrew original, bene ha-elohim,
should really be translated as sons of the g--s, a much more
disconcerting prospect (and something to be returned to in a
subsequent chapter). In verse 3 of Chapter 6, G-- unexpectedly
pronounces that his spirit cannot remain in men for ever, and that
since humanity is a creation of flesh, its life span will be shortened
to an hundred and twenty years. Yet in verse 4 the tone suddenly
reverts to the original theme of the chapter, for it says:

The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, so after that,
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare
children to them: the same were the mighty men which were of old,
the men of renown.

In the hundreds of times I have read these isolated words out aloud
I have wondered to myself.- what could they possibly mean?
There is no consensus in answer to this question, and scholars, mystics
and speculative writers have all given their own interpretations
over the past two thousand years. Theologians agree in general that
such accounts are not to be taken as literal fact, but only as a symbol
of humanity's fall from a state of spiritual grace to one of conflict
and corruption in the days prior to the Great Flood. What the texts
are saying, the theologians would argue, is that if evil and corruption
on this scale does occur in the world, then only those of the purest
heart and spirit - individuals exemplified by Noah and his righteous
family - will be spared the wrath of God. It is therefore a purely
allegorical teaching intent on conveying to the reader the inevitable
consequences of wickedness. The references in verses 2 and 4 to the
sons of Go- coming unto the daughters of men, so the scholars believe,
demonstrate how even those closest to the purity of -od can become
infected by corruption and evil. It was usually accepted among religious
teachers that any such unholy union between angels and mortal women
could only, because it was against G--s will, lead to the creation
of monstrous offspring. It was this thought-provoking concept which
had, according to the early Church Fathers, inspired the creation
of various apocryphal and pseudepigraphal works dealing with the fall
of the angels and the corruption of mankind before the time of the
Great Flood.

So much for --cal debate, but is it correct? Is this all
there is to know about the origins of fallen angels? And what about
the adherents of the Jewish and Christian faiths? How were they able
to interpret such myths? The majority would probably have been unaware
that these problematical verses even existed in the Book of Genesis.
Others, who did have some knowledge of the matter, are unlikely to
have been able to expand on it, while only a very small minority would
have believed in the actual existence of fallen angels. Many
commentators would have been unable to explain exactly how such
stories related to the physical world we live in, while other more
fundamentalist --ws or Christians have seen such corruption and
wickedness as the actions of bloodline descendants of those first
fallen angels who cohabited with mortal women before the time of the
Flood. Such suggestions may seem far-fetched, but in the United
States there is an organization known as the Sons of Jared, who take
their name from the patriarch Jared, the father of Enoch, during
whose age the Watchers were said to have been cast down from heaven.
In their manifesto, the Sons of Jared vow implacable war against the
descendants of the Watchers, who, they allege, as notorious Pharaohs,
Kings and Dictators, have throughout history dominated mankind. The
Jaredite Advocate, the voice of the Sons of Jared, quotes lavishly
from the Book of Enoch and sees the Watchers as like super-gangsters,
a celestial Mafia ruling the world. Is this simply a view gained from
dogmatically accepting the fall of flesh-and-blood angels of heaven?
How many individuals have the Sons of Jared accused or persecuted,
believing them to be modern-day descendants of the Watchers? Some
academic scholars, on the other hand, while unable to accept any
basis in fact behind the concept of fallen angels and their monstrous
offspring, the Nephilim, would be willing to admit that the original
authors of the Book of Genesis (traditionally accredited to Moses the
lawgiver) based their material on previously existing folk legends,
probably from Mesopotamia (the country known today as Iraq). The
historian S. H. Hooke, for instance, in his book Middle Eastern
Mythology, accepts that:

Behind the brief and probably intentionally obscure reference in
(Genesis) 6:I-4 there lies a more widely known myth of a race of
semi-divine beings who rebelled against the g--s and were cast down
into the underworld ... The fragment of the myth here preserved by
the Yahwist was originally an aetiological myth explaining the
belief in the existence of a vanished race of giants ...

This might well be so, but accepting Genesis 6: 1-4 as the product
of far older Middle Eastern myths allows for the possibility that,
sometime during a bygone age of mankind, there existed on earth,
presumably in the bible lands themselves, an elite and probably
superior race of human beings. These people presumably achieved a
state of high civilization before degenerating into a corruption
and wickedness that included the taking of wives from among the
less civilized races and the creation of monstrous offspring of
disproportionate size to their immediate family. It might also be
suggested that a series of global cataclysms thereafter brought fire,
flood and darkness to the earth and ended the reign of this race of
giants. Should we see accounts like Lamechs torment at the miraculous
birth of his son Noah, and untold others like it, as tantalizing
evidence for the idea that fallen angels were something far more than
simply incorporeal beings cast out of heaven by the archangel Michael,
as the theologians and propagators of the Christian, Islamic and
Jewish faiths have taught during the last two thousand years? Could
their very existence be confirmed by making an in-depth study of
Hebrew myths and legends and then comparing these with other Near
Eastern and Middle Eastern religions and traditions? Most important
of all, might evidence of their physical existence on earth be
incidentally preserved in the records of modern-day archaeology and
anthropology? Such thought provoking possibilities were worth further
consideration. If, at the end of the day, it was found that no such
evidence for the existence of a now lost race in the bible lands
could be discovered, then at least an age-old enigma would have been
investigated thoroughly. On the other hand, if there really was firm
evidence that angels and fallen angels once walked among mankind as
beings of flesh and blood, no different from you or me, then it could
change our perspective of world history for ever.

There are clear signs that the concept of angels and fallen angels
as corporeal beings of flesh and blood, who lived in a distant
antediluvian age and left as a legacy an intimate knowledge of many
things forbidden to humanity, was once widely accepted by certain
elements of the Jewish population. These included the devout
religious communities that lived a pious existence in the hot, rugged
terrain on the west bank of the Dead Sea from about I70 BC to AD 120.
Known to history as the Essenes, their main center is thought to
have been at Qumran, where archaeologists have uncovered extensive
evidence of occupation, including a massive library room where many
of the Dead Sea Scrolls are thought to have been written. Historical
works from this period suggest that the Essenes not only accepted
the Book of Enoch as part of their canon, but also used its listing
of angels to perform rites of exorcism and healing. Recent studies
of the Dead Sea Scrolls have also shown that the Essenes possessed
an almost unhealthy interest in Enochian-style material featuring
the Watchers and Nephilim. Although many of these works date only
to the second century BC, the hidden teachings found among the Qumran
community and known as Kabbalah imply that the Enochian and Noahic
scriptures were passed on by word of mouth for thousands of years
before finally being set down in written form by the Essenes themselves.
With the advent of Christianity, the Book of Enoch and other such
similar works became generally available for the first time. Many
of the Early Church leaders, from the first to the third centuries
AD, used and quoted openly from their pages. Some Christian scholars
held that mortal women had been responsible for the fall of the angels,
while Paul in Corinthians 11:10 advocated - according to the Church
Father Tertullianus (AD 160-230) - that women cover their heads so
as not to incite wantonness in the fallen angels who liked unveiled
women with beautiful hair. Even more remarkable was the general
acceptance among many prominent theologians that fallen angels possessed
corporeal bodies. Indeed, it was not until the age of the Church
Fathers, from the fourth century onwards, that such matters were
seriously questioned. For these people, fallen angels were not
flesh-and-blood beings, and any suggestion that they might have been
became tantamount to heresy. This attitude led to the suppression of
the Book of Enoch, which quickly fell out of favour. Most bizarre of
all were the comments of St Augustine (AD 354-430) in respect of the
antiquity of this pseudepigrapha work. He claimed that on account of
it being too old (ob nimiam antiquitatem), the Book of Enoch could
not be included in the Canon of Scripture.

What ever could he have meant by suggesting it was too old? It was a
most extraordinary statement to be made by a respected Church father.
Curiously enough, the Book of Enoch had also fallen out of favour
among the J--s, after Rabbi Simeon ben Jochai, in the second century
AD, cursed all those who believed that the Sons of G-- mentioned in
Genesis 6 were truly angels. This was despite the fact that the
Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament, uses the term
'angelos' in place of sons of God. The Church Fathers then went
further in their attempts to stamp out the strange fascination with
fallen angels among early Christians by condemning as heresy the use
of the many hundreds of names given both to angels and fallen angels
in various religious works. No longer was the Book of Enoch copied by
Christian scribes, and those copies remaining in libraries and
churches were either lost or destroyed, denying the world any
knowledge of the works true contents for over a thousand years.
Subsequently, on top of all this, it became the policy of Catholic
theologians to eradicate firmly from the teachings of the Church any
notion that fallen angels had once been seen as material beings, a
situation typified by this quote from the New Catholic Encyclopedia:
In the course of time theology has purified the obscurity and error
contained in traditional views about angels (i.e. the belief that they
were corporeal in nature and cohabited with mortal women).
Yet why should such beliefs have become so abhorrent to the Christian
faith after the great leaders of the Early Church of Jerusalem had
preached so openly on this very controversial subject? It simply did
not make sense, and suggested there must have been extremely good
reasons for forcing this strain of thought underground, for that
was exactly where it went - underground. From the extraordinary evidence
collected together by the author, and presented in this book for the
first time, there emerge firm grounds to suggest that initiates and
secret societies preserved, revered, even celebrated the forbidden
knowledge that our most distant ancestors had gained their inspiration
and wisdom, not from --d or from the experiences of life, but from
a forgotten race remembered by us today only as fallen angels, demons,
devils, giants and evil spirits. Should such a view prove in any way
correct, then it must indicate one of the greatest secrets ever kept
from mankind. But where was I to start? How was I even to begin the
quest to unveil the forbidden legacy of this apparently fallen race?
The answer lay with its main source book, the Book of Enoch, for only by
understanding its obscure origins and absorbing its bizarre contents
could I ever hope to uncover the true picture behind humanity's lost heritage.

Plight of the Watchers and Nephilim-----------------------------------

One by one the angels of heaven are appointed by G-- to proceed against
the Watchers and their offspring the Nephilim, described as the bastards
and the reprobates, and the children of fornication. Azazel is
bound hand and foot, and cast for eternity into the darkness of a
desert referred to as Dudael. Upon him are placed rough and jagged
rocks and here he shall forever remain until the Day of judgement,
when he will be cast into the fire for his sins. For their part
in the corruption of mankind, the Watchers are forced to witness the
slaughter of their own children before being cast into some kind of
heavenly prison, an 'abyss of fire'.

Although the Watchers' leader, Shemyaza, is cast into this abyss
alongside his brothers, in other versions of the story he undergoes a
more dramatic punishment. Since he was tempted by a beautiful
mortal maiden named Ishtahar to reveal the Explicit Name of --d
in exchange for the offer of carnal pleasure, he is to be tied and
bound before being made to hang for all eternity between heaven
and earth, head down, in the constellation of Orion."
The suggestion that the rebel Watchers had to look on as their
children were murdered hints at a form of infanticide in which
those born of the union between fallen angels and mortal women
were systematically rounded up and slaughtered as their fathers
watched helplessly. If this supposition is correct, then it could
explain the fear and revulsion instilled in Lamech and Bathenosh at
the birth of their son Noah, who apparently resembled a Nephilim
baby- their horror being connected not simply to their own son's
strange appearance, but to the fact that the offspring of the
Watchers were being murdered by those angels still loyal to heaven.
Following the incarceration of the rebel Watchers, Enoch is
summoned to 'heaven' and addressed by the archangels, who are
also, confusingly, referred to as Watchers. They request that he
intercedes on their behalf and puts to the rebel angels the crimes
they have committed against mankind. Enoch accepts this task and goes to see
them in their place of incarceration. On his approach,
he finds them all afraid, and fear and trembling seized them. Fear
of punishment is surely a human tendency, not the emotions one might
expect of incorporeal messengers of G--, and where was this prison,
so accessible to Enoch? The text suggests it was near the waters of
Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon. 'The waters of Dan' refers
to one of the tributaries of the river Jordan in northern Palestine.

The root of the Hebrew word dan means to judge, and Canon R. H.
Charles in a footnote to this particular reference in his widely
accepted translation of the Ethiopian text, concedes that this location
was specifically chosen because its name is significant of the subject
the writer is dealing with, that is the judgment of the angels [authors
italics]. The geographical positioning of this story is therefore
symbolic and not actual. Clearly the author of the Book of Enoch is
attempting to create some kind of sound geographical perspective to
the narrative, in this case establishing the rebel Watchers place
of incarceration close to the location of their original descent upon
Mount Hermon. In other words, many of the sites given in the Book
of Enoch were chosen simply to give credence to the stories it contains.
The corruption still left in the world after the imprisonment of the
Watchers, and the death of their Nephilim offspring, is to be swept
away by a series of global catastrophes, ending in the Great Flood
so familiar within biblical traditions In a separate account of the
plight of the Nephilim, this mass destruction is seen in terms of
an all encompassing conflagration sent by the angels of heaven in
the form of fire, naphtha and brimstone. No one will survive these
cataclysms of fire and water save for the seed of Noah, from whose
line will come the future human race. This is how the Dead Sea
communities and the earliest Christians understood the Book of Enoch,
yet never is there any insinuation that the rebel Watchers were beings
of flesh and blood, only that they assumed physical form in order to
lie with mortal women. Having read and reread the story of the fall of
the Watchers several times over, I began to realize that such a view of
events could be seriously challenged, for there seemed compelling
evidence to suggest that the rebel Watchers - and, by virtue of this,
angels of heaven themselves - might originally have been a race
of human beings who existed in the Middle East at a distant point in history.
If this were so, then memories of these monumental and quite horrendous
events would appear to have been distorted and mythologized across
the passage of time, until they became simply moralistic folk-tales
in a slowly evolving religious history adopted by the Jewish race
during Old Testament times. Did this provide a valid answer? To me
it appeared as credible as any. Yet if my solution was incorrect,
then what were the alternatives? There were two. Either the reader
can accept that religious literature of this nature is pure fantasy,
based on the deep psychological needs and values of a --god-fearing
society. Or he or she can accept that incorporeal angels not only
exist, but that they can also descend to earth, take on human form
and then couple with mortal women, who afterwards give birth to giants
that grow up to become ruthless barbarians of the sort portrayed in
Book of Enoch. Which of these solutions seems easiest to accept?
Which of these choices feels most right to accept? And even if the
rebel Watchers were once human beings of flesh and blood, where did
they come from, in what time frame did they live, and what was the
true fate of their progeny? Did they all either perish in the mass
genocide orchestrated by the angels still loyal to heaven or die in
the cataclysms which culminated in the Great Flood? Did any survive?
The Book of Enoch provided no immediate answers, though my mind lingered
over one particular passage in Chapter 15 concerning the final fate
of the Nephilim:

Because they are born from men (and) from the holy Watchers in
their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth,
and evil spirits shall they be called ... And the spirits of the
giants (will) afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work
destruction on the earth, and cause trouble; they (will) take no food,
[but neverthe-less hunger] and thirst, and cause offenses. And these
spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the
women, because they have proceeded (from them).

The text here speaks of evil spirits - demons and devils might be
more appropriate terms. Yet if it could for one moment be assumed
that blood descendants is what was originally intended, then these
enigmatic lines imply that those born of Nephilim blood are, by virtue
of their ancestral spirit, destined to afflict, oppress, destroy,
attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth. These are chilling
thoughts indeed, yet in the puritanical words of the Book of Enoch
these corrupted souls are also destined to become the damned, who
will take no food, [but nevertheless hunger] and thirst. The djinns,
the malevolent spirits of Islamic tradition, are said to suffer from
a devouring hunger and yet cannot eat while in East European folklore,
as well as in popular romance, there are likewise supernatural denizens
that drink blood yet can take no food, [but can nevertheless hunger]
and thirst, and these are, of course, nosferatu - vampires. Whatever
the reality of such beings in anthropological terms, vampires live
on in the dark, sinister world of Gothic horror, which, as I had already
realized, owes much of its character to the way in which the initial
publication of the Book of Enoch in 1821 influenced the inner visions
of the poets and artists of the romantic movement. Perhaps the spirit
of the fallen race does therefore live on in the collective unconscious
of modern-day society. Perhaps the descendants of the Nephilim, the
hybrid offspring of the two hundred rebel Watchers, are still inside
us, their presence hinted at only by the unsettling knowledge that
our dark past holds hidden truths which are now beginning to reveal
themselves for the first time -secrets that only a few enlightened
souls have ever realized are preserved in the heretical Book of Enoch,
this demonic doctrine, as it was aptly described by the Canon R. H. Charles.
