The sixty members of the planetary staff who went into rebellion chose Nod as their leader. They worked wholeheartedly for the rebel Prince but soon discovered that they were deprived of the sustenance of the system life circuits. They awakened to the fact that they had been degraded to the status of mortal beings. They were indeed superhuman but, at the same time, material and mortal. In an effort to increase their numbers, Daligastia ordered immediate resort to sexual reproduction, knowing full well that the original sixty and their forty-four modified Andonite associates were doomed to suffer extinction by death, sooner or later. After the fall of Dalamatia the disloyal staff migrated to the north and the east. Their descendants were long known as the Nodites, and their dwelling place as " the land of Nod. "
1Enoch speaks about a race of people who are descended from the offspring of “the sons of God who mated with the daughters of men.” This race is referred to as the Nephilim, which corresponds to the Nodite race of the Urantia Book. This inter-racial union between Nodites and the daughters of man is blamed for the evil and sin that resulted in “the flood,” by which God purified the earth. Enoch again identifies “an evil race” which is associated with the evil harvest of the messianic period. This raises the question of whether or not there are still present, relatively pure line descendants of this ancient Nodite race? Is this the race that has been associated with royalty throughout the centuries? If so, this would explain the royal links between the ruling class, the Power Elite, and the secret societies. Who are they, where are they, and what role, if any, will they play in the messianic period?
1Enoch 105:27 For to the faithful shall He give faith in the habitation of upright ways. They shall see those, who having been born in darkness into darkness shall be cast; while the righteous shall be at rest. Sinners shall cry out, beholding them, while they exist in splendor and proceed forward to the days and periods written down for them.
In 1Enoch 105:13, “Those who were from heaven” probably refers to the Nephilim or Nodites. Among these are the “sons of God who cavorted with the daughters of men” (Genesis 6). In 1Enoch 10:18, we are told that the offspring of these “watchers” who fell from heaven are destroyed in the “last days” judgment because they “have tyrannized over mankind.” 1Enoch thus reveals to us the presence of an ancient and ongoing “evil race” (? Nodites) who have existed throughout the history of mankind. And so we can begin to understand the Psalm “Why do the heathen rage and the nations conspire against the Lord and his anointed” (Psalm 2). The concept of an evil, world order that attempts to impose itself over mankind should be studied in detail in our attempt to understand the forces that are shaping our world situation today. In order to be the bearers of truth, one must be able to bear ridicule, slander, and contempt. World government could be a wonderful development and a great benefit to mankind. However, ask yourself, if our developing world order is really so beneficial, why has it developed and flourished in secrecy, without public debate and knowledge. There are scores of international institutions that most of us have never heard of and know nothing about. Why not? Consider the World Trade Organization so recently in the news. How many know that this organization represents the interests of the ever-more powerful international corporate elite who use the political power and auspices of the United States Government to facilitate and maintain their success. These interests care nothing about people, jobs, environmental concerns, or equity. They care only about profit, control, and power. Government has become an arm of the corporate interest. Is this the world system that we want? How many of us know that the United States law is being changed by Federal Executive Orders directly by the President, bypassing Congress, in order to prepare for the day when the United States Constitution is made subservient to the United Nations Charter? How many know that the United Nations Charter has no bill of rights and no protection for the individual against the arbitrary power of the World State? The Book of Enoch reveals to us that the core of such “nefarious plans” has ancient roots dating from the very origins of rebellion on this planet. Is it really surprising to anyone who understands the Urantia Book that our developing world system has points of contact with the same forces of evil which ‘conspired’ to bring to an end the life of the Son of Man. However, it would be a mistake to give these “principalities” of evil too much credit. Mankind itself bears the greatest burden of blame, for without its willing assistance, such principalities could have no power and no influence.
That there have been advanced, “lost civilizations” that have come before us is supported by a great number of facts. For instance, ancient maps have been found going back over 5000 years that record very accurately detailed geography and topography of now glacier covered land in Greenland and Antarctica. These maps have been compared to modern maps obtained through seismic sounding and have been found to be in “astounding agreement.” John White tells us: …they (the ancient map makers) must have had a very competent and farflung hydrographic organization, because you cannot map as large a continent as Antarctica…by any single individual or small group of explorers. It means an aggregation of skilled scientists who are familiar with astronomy as well as the methods required for topographic surveying…They had a record of every mountain range in Canada and Alaska, which the Army map service did not have at that time…Antarctica was discovered in 1818, and was not fully mapped until 1920.
Consider some more evidence for this ancient advanced lost civilization from John White’s Pole Shift: The British Museum sent some of the tools from Egypt to a metallurgist and were astounded to find that they were using powdered metallurgy, the process which has made our atom bomb possible. So, 5000 years ago, the Egyptians were using the same process we thought we had just discovered… I wonder what type of technologic and scientific knowledge the Caligastia one hundred were able to transmit through their nodite culture, which then in turn resulted in the Sumerian civilization, and then influenced Egyptian civilization. I have also read that a unique type of green glass is formed from sand exposed to an atomic blast. Such glass has been excavated in the Middle East region during archeological research.
1Enoch 92:9 Subsequently, in the fourth week, during its completion, the visions of the holy and the righteous shall be seen (Old Testament prophets), the order of generation after generation shall take place, and an habitation shall be made for them. Then in the fifth week, during its completion, the house of glory and of dominion shall be erected for ever. (? First Temple)
1Enoch 92:10 After that, in the sixth week, all those who are in it shall be darkened, the hearts of all of them shall be forgetful of wisdom, and in it shall a man ascend. (? Jesus)
1Enoch 92:11 And during its completion also he shall burn the house of dominion with fire, and all the race of the elect root shall be dispersed (Matthew 23:37-39). (?Roman War AD 70)
1Enoch 92:12 Afterwards, in the seventh week a perverse generation shall arise; abundant shall be its deeds, and all its deeds perverse. During its completion, the righteous shall be selected from the plant of everlasting righteousness; and to them shall be given the sevenfold doctrine respecting every part of his whole creation.
1Enoch 92:13 Afterwards there shall be another week, the eighth of righteousness and justice upon all oppressors.
1Enoch 92:14 Sinners shall be delivered up into the hands of the righteous, who during its completion shall acquire habitations by their righteousness; and the house of the great King shall be established for praises for ever. After that, in the ninth week, shall the judgment of righteousness be revealed to the whole world. (House = Third Temple, great King = Melchizedek)
1Enoch 92:15 Every work of the ungodly shall disappear from the whole earth; the world shall be marked for destruction; and all men shall be on the lookout for the path of integrity.
1Enoch 92:16 And after this, on the seventh day of the tenth week, there shall be an everlasting judgment, which shall be executed upon the Watchers; and a spacious eternal heaven shall spring forth in the midst of the angels. (watchers, race of Nodites?)
Here are some facts about 1Enoch the book and Enoch the man. 1. Ethiopic Enoch = 1Enoch 2. 1Enoch is the oldest. 2 and 3 Enoch are later works. 3. Enoch was the seventh descendent of Adam and Eve in the Bible. 4. Enoch “walked with God. Then he vanished and God took him.” (Genesis 5:24) 5. Enoch was the son of Cain and Ramona, and he led the Nodites. (UB 849) 6. Enoch was the first mortal fused with his thought adjuster. (UB 514) 7. Enoch is one of 24 members ‘Urantia advisory council.’ (UB 513) 8. The Book of Enoch was an inspiration to Jesus. (UB 1390) The title “Son of Man” was taken from the Book of Enoch. (UB 1390) Of all scripture the Book of Enoch “was nearest to the truth” regarding Jesus’ identity and mission as assessed by Jesus himself. (UB 1390). 9. Enoch is said to have been taken away by God, saw the secrets and mysteries of the universe, the future of the world, and the predetermined course of human history (Biblical literature). 10. There are three parts to 1Enoch. 11. 1Enoch was found among the Dead Sea Scrolls pushing its date of origin back to at least 100-200 BC (except for part 2, see below). 12. Part 2, the Similitudes, is the part containing all the references to the Son of Man and is the only part not yet found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Therefore, its dating is unsure (? pre-Christian or not). 13. The New Testament was significantly influenced by 1Enoch. 14. Many early Church fathers were inspired by 1Enoch. 15. Many copies of 1Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. 1Enoch was probably one of the most authoritative and popular scriptures of the Qumran Community. 16. After the fourth century A.D. 1Enoch was apparently suppressed as heretical by the Church due to its references to the physicality of the fallen angels who were said to have had sexual relations with the ‘daughters of men.’ 17. The entire Book of Enoch not discovered again until 1773. It was brought to Europe from Ethiopia. 18. The book survived as a whole only in Ethiopia. Why? Was it destroyed by the church? 19. 1Enoch is directly quoted in Jude and 2Peter of the New Testament in reference to danger of a perverted form of Christian belief which claimed that it was only necessary to have faith. The overriding concern of these two New Testament books is that the believer feels that he or she is otherwise above the biblical laws and commandments. This belief mainly took the form of sensual and sexual indulgence. Jude and 2Peter reject such licentiousness and state that the fate of such believers will be like the angels or “Sons of God” who sinned by descending from heaven and having intercourse with daughters of men. (See Genesis 6:1-4). The story of these “fallen angels” is discussed in 1Enoch. The Nephilim of the Bible are the Nodites of the Urantia Book (UB 856) and are the descendants of the original disloyal ‘Dalamatia staff of one hundred’ (UB 758), and who became the ‘eighth race to appear on Urantia’ (UB 822).
The 1Enoch text quotes, unless otherwise indicated will be taken from The Book of Enoch, from the Ethiopic, literally translated by Richard Laurence, LL.D., Archbishop of Cashel, Late Professor of Hebrew in the University of Oxford, 1882. The biblical references in parentheses are part of the translation and are not my comments. These references are Biblical verses that are felt to be related to 1Enoch by the Archbishop.
1Enoch 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; to the rejection of all the wicked and ungodly (Psalm 1). Enoch, a righteous man, was with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision which was in the heavens (Genesis 5:24). This the angel showed me.
1Enoch 1:2 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, on account of the elect. (Daniel 12:4).
Parts of 1Enoch are written specifically for the sake of those who elect God’s will during the time of trouble, in the “distant” messianic period, now about to begin.
1Enoch 1:3 Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from this habitation, the Holy and Mighty One, the God of the world. Enoch conversed with Melchizedek “on account of” the elect. The Mighty One, God of the World, is Melchizedek who goes forth from his heavenly “habitation” with strength and power, riding the white horse of Revelation to put an end to war, persecution, and terror. This God of the world:
1Enoch 1:4 ...will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested in the strength of his power from heaven.
1Enoch 1:5 All shall be afraid, and the Watchers be terrified.
1Enoch 1:6 Great fear and trembling shall seize them, even to the ends of the earth. The lofty mountains shall be troubled, and the exalted hills depressed, melting like a honeycomb in the flame. The earth shall be immerged, and all things which are in it perish; while judgment shall come upon all, even upon all the righteous (Revelation 20:11-15).
Melchizedek will visibly “appear with his hosts.” How so? The Watchers are probably the descendants of those who had been “cast out of heaven,” (the Dalamatia 100) who are from the Nodite (Nephilim) racial line. Are these some of the “princes” of the world, the powerful and heartless that run our world system from behind the scenes. Many of these behind the scene leaders apparently come from “royal” lineages. They are terrified, as they should be, when Melchizedek comes. As many other times stated in scripture, the hills are made low during cataclysmic tectonic activity. Notice that all those in (but not above or on) the earth perish, i.e. those hiding in mountains and subterranean locations. All people are then subject to individual judgment according to prophecy.
