The Book of Enoch chapter chapter 38 chapter 39 chapter 45 chapter 46 is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah.
Book of Enoch Chapter 38
The Hebrews and the Christians
1 Parable the first. When the congregation of the righteous shall be manifested; and sinners be judged for their crimes, and be troubled in the sight of the world;
2 When the righteousness One appears in the presence of the righteous themselves, who will be elected for their good works duly weighed by the Lord of spirits; and when the light of the righteous and the elect (The Hebrews and the Christians), who dwell on earth, shall be manifested; where will the habitation of sinners be? And where the place of rest for those who have rejected the Lord of spirits? It would have been better for them, had they never been born.
3 When, too, the secrets of the righteous shall be revealed, then shall sinners be judged; and impious men shall be afflicted in the presence of the righteous and the elect (The Hebrews and the Christians).
4 From that period those who possess the earth shall cease to be powerful and exalted. Neither shall they be capable of beholding the countenances of the holy; for the light of the countenances of the holy, the righteous, and the elect (The Hebrews and the Christians), has been seen by the Lord of spirits.
5 Yet shall not the mighty kings of that period be destroyed; but be delivered into the hands of the righteous and the holy.
6 Nor thence forwards shall any obtain commiseration from the Lord of spirits, because their lives in this world will have been completed.
Book of Enoch Chapter 39
1 In those days shall the elect (the church of Jesus Christ) and holy race (the Hebrews), descend from the upper heavens, and their seed shall then be with the sons of men. Enoch received books of indignation and wrath, and books of hurry and agitation.
2 Never shall they obtain mercy, saith the Lord of spirits.
3 A cloud then snatched me up, and the wind raised me above the surface of the earth, placing me at the extremity of the heavens.
4 There I saw another vision; I saw the habitations and resting places of the saints. There my eyes beheld their habitations with the angels, and their resting places with the holy ones. They were entreating, supplicating, and praying for the sons of men; while righteousness like water flowed before them, and mercy like dew was scattered over the earth. And thus shall it be with them for ever and for ever.
5 At that time my eyes beheld the dwelling of the elect, of truth, faith, and righteousness. (The place Jesus Christ prepared for those whom believe in him)
6 Countless shall be the number of the holy and the elect, in the presence of God for ever and for ever.
7 Their residence I beheld under the wings of the Lord of spirits. All the holy and the elect sung before him, in appearance like a blaze of fire; their mouths being full of blessings, and their lips glorifying the name of the Lord of spirits. And righteousness incessantly dwelt before him.
8 There was I desirous of remaining, and my soul longed for that habitation. There was my antecedent inheritance; for thus had I prevailed before the Lord of spirits.
9 At that time I glorified and extolled the name of the Lord of spirits with blessing and with praise; for he has established it with blessing and with praise, according to his own good pleasure.
10 That place long did my eyes contemplate. I blessed and said, Blessed be he, blessed from the beginning for ever. In the beginning, before the world was created, and without end is his knowledge.
11 What is this world? Of every existing generation those shall bless you who do not spiritually sleep but stand before your glory, blessing, glorifying, exalting you, and saying, The holy, holy, Lord of spirits, fills the whole world of spirits.
12 There my eyes beheld all who, without sleeping, stand before him and bless him, saying, Blessed be you, and blessed be the name of God for ever and for ever. Then my countenance became changed, until I was incapable of seeing.
Book of Enoch Chapter 45
Jesus Christs Second Coming
1 Parable the second, respecting these who deny the name of the habitation of the holy ones, and of the Lord of spirits.
2 Heaven they shall not ascend, nor shall they come on the earth. This shall be the portion of sinners, who deny the name of the Lord of spirits, and who are thus reserved for the day of punishment and of affliction.
3 In that day shall the Elect One ,Jesus Christ, sit upon a throne of glory; and shall choose their conditions and countless habitations, while their spirits within them shall be strengthened, when they behold my Elect One, Jesus Christ, for those who have fled for protection to my holy and glorious name.
4 In that day I will cause my Elect One, Jesus Christ, to dwell in the midst of them; will change the face of heaven; will bless it, and illuminate it for ever.
5 I will also change the face of the earth, will bless it; and cause those whom I have elected to dwell upon it. But those who have committed sin and iniquity shall not inhabit it, for I have marked their proceedings. My righteous ones will I satisfy with peace, placing them before me; but the condemnation of sinners shall draw near, that I may destroy them from the face of the earth.
Book of Enoch Chapter 46
Enoch sees Jesus Christ 7000yrs before his birth
1 There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool, and with him another (Jesus Christ), whose countenance resembled that of man. His countenance was full of grace, like that of one of the holy angels. Then I inquired of one of the angels, who went with me, and who showed me every secret thing, concerning this Son of man (Jesus Christ); who he was; whence he was and why he accompanied the Ancient of days.
2 He answered and said to me, This is the Son of man (Jesus Christ), to whom righteousness belongs; with whom righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting uprightness.
3 This Son of man (Jesus Christ), whom you behold, shall raise up kings and the mighty from their dwelling places, and the powerful from their thrones; shall loosen the bridles of the powerful, and break in pieces the teeth of sinners.
4 He shall hurl kings from their thrones and their dominions; because they will not exalt and praise him, nor humble themselves before him, by whom their kingdoms were granted to them. The countenance likewise of the mighty shall He cast down, filling them with confusion. Darkness shall be their habitation, and worms shall be their bed; nor from that their bed shall they hope to be again raised, because they exalted not the name of the Lord of spirits.
5 They shall condemn the stars of heaven, shall lift up their hands against the Most High, shall tread upon and inhabit the earth, exhibiting all their acts of iniquity, even their works of iniquity. Their strength shall be in their riches, and their faith in the gods whom they have formed with their own hands. They shall deny the name of the Lord of spirits, and shall expel him from the temples, in which they assemble;
6 And with him the faithful, will drive them from the houses of his congregation in the name of the Lord of spirits.
