  4. How the 364-day calendar works

By comparing the book of Enoch with the book of Revelation, it appears that in the beginning there were 21 archangels, but one-third fell (Rev. 12:4) and 14 remained faithful. Each was captain of an army under them.

According to the book of Enoch, the seven archangels that fell caused disorder in God’s creation. The sun, moon, and stars now err from their course. A solar year was no longer an “exact” 364 days. It lengthened to 365.2422. Due to this difference in the length of a solar year, the seasons “go astray” “transgress” by 1.2422 days, the difference from an exact 364 days.

How to keep time on a slow watch

Thus, “the days were shortened,” as the book of Enoch calls it. It was shortened because the 364-day year now finished increasingly early each year, (Enoch 80, cf., 70). This accumulates over time if no leap day, leap week, or leap month is added to correct the slow clock.

“And in the days of the sinners, the years shall be shortened, And their seed shall be tardy on their lands and fields, And all things on the earth shall alter, And shall not appear in their time.” (Enoch 80:2).

Jesus said something very similar.

“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.

“Immediately after the distress of those days

“ ‘the sun will be darkened,

and the moon will not give its light;

the stars will fall from the sky,

and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’ (Matt 24:22,29)

In this article, we show that God turned this slow broken clock into an opportunity for grace. Grace is shown by either hastening or delaying time by ingeniously utilizing different methods of telling time and adjusting clocks to the true solar year. In so doing God reveals a greater harmony than what existed before the fall of angels and men, purchased by Christ on the cross when the sun went dark at noon.

Originally a solar year was 364 days

Some Bible students think that a solar year was originally 360 days long, but was altered at the Great Flood. But if so, why then did Enoch live 365 years before the flood, implying a 365-day year?

Or what about Kenan, 4th from Adam. He lived for 2.5*364 years (910). Even Noah was born when his father was half-364 years of age!

So, what about the 360 days clearly affirmed elsewhere in the Bible?

According to the book of Enoch, the 364-day year is understood as if it were 360 days because these four extra days are considered epagomenal (intercalary) days and therefore “are not to be reckoned in the count”, (Enoch 74:12; 75:1-2; 82:4,6,11).

This fact significantly impacts Bible numbers, patterns, and prophecy.

Adjusting the 360-day year

Therefore, according to the book of Enoch, a year unadjusted by leap-days, (or leap-weeks or leap-months, depending on the method of intercalation used) at its core is 360 days. There are four ways to reconcile a 360-year with the true solar year.

Three of the 360-day methods were explained 20 years ago in detail. (See www.360calendar.com) All four are given briefly at the end of this article.
Adjusting the 364-day year

The Enochian calendar first reconciles the 360-day year with 364 days before going on to reconcile the 364-day year with the true solar year of 365.2422 days.

The 360-day year is reconciled with the 364 day-year by simply adding an extra day at the end of each of the four seasons. These extra days are said to “lead the way” for the subsequent season. Each month, therefore, has 30 days. And, each season has 91 days, (30 + 30 + 30 + 1 = 91 days = one full season). And each year is 364 days long (91*4). But remember, this “364 days” is reckoned as if it was just “360 days”.

The eight methods to reconcile the 364-day year to the true solar year of 365.2422 are given at the end of this article.

1274 is 1260 days just as 364 is 360 days

“I will give my two witnesses who wear sackcloth the authority to prophesy for 1,260 days.” (Rev. 11:3)

Because 364 days can be viewed as 360 days, therefore the 3.5 years of Rev. 11:3  is literally 1274 days (on the Enoch calendar), but figuratively 1260 days. (360*3.5 = 1260 and 364*3.5 = 1274.) The extra two weeks are simply ignored when the number is given in the Bible. At least this is the perspective of the book of Enoch, and perhaps other extra-biblical literature such as the book of Jubilees. Traces of it are found in the Bible as well, as mentioned earlier.

Recall the 2.5*364 of Kenan and the 2/364 of Noah's father and a host of less obvious places. Example, there are 1274 + 1274 years from the Flood to the death of Christ (i.e., with Terah's well-known extra 60-years, Acts 7). The Book of Jubilees produces a similar date for the Flood. 

The following treasure is for you to unpack: Exodus is 1446 BC. Abraham's birth is 2166 BC, plus Terah's 60 + remaining 290 (or 292) to the Flood = 2516/2518 BC for the Flood. The Flood plus 1274 + 1274 years = 31 or 33 AD. This two-year anomaly of Genesis 6 perfectly fits with the alternate expression of a seven-year period (of years).

2518 BC + 1260 + 1290 = AD 33 (Includes the leap-month of Dan. 12)
2516 BC + 1274 + 1274 = AD 33 (If Enoch's leap-week was included, it would land on Lamech's death at 777.)

This seven years of years symbolizes the seven days that mankind had to enter the ark before God shut the door. God delayed a leap-month (on the 360 calendar) and a leap week (on the 364 calendar) before the Flood came, but not so for the Lamb of God -- from the 10th to the 17th of the "first month" (Nisan); slain "in the middle of that week", (Dan. 9).

“And the sun and the stars bring in all the years exactly so that they do not advance or delay their position by a single day unto eternity, but complete the years with perfect justice in 364 DAYS

…the four intercalary days, being inseparable from their office, according to the reckoning of the year, and these render service on the four days which are NOT IN THE RECKONING OF THE YEAR.

Their four leaders who divide the four parts of the year enter first; and after them the twelve leaders of the orders who divide the months; and for the 360 DAYS there are heads of thousands who divide the days; and for the four intercalary days there are the leaders which sunder the four parts of the year.” (Enoch 74:12; 75:1b; 82:11.)

To recap:

(30+30+30+1 days) times four seasons equals 364 days in a year but is 360 days figuratively speaking.

Four archangels of Enoch that guard the four corners of the earth and its seasons
Fractal of the four archangels of Enoch that guard the four corners of the earth and its seasons
Blame it on men and angels

The book of Enoch lays the charge of wrongly keeping track of the year to mankind who “do not reckon the four intercalary (epagomenal) days correctly”. Enoch also blames the four angels left in charge of the four seasons of the year — the invisible powers responsible for the motions of the sun, moon, and stars.

The Grand Rule: All is divisible by seven

364 is divisible by seven.

The book of Enoch tells us that there are “exactly 364 days in one year”, “1092 in three years”, “1820 days in 5 years”,  and “2912 days in 8 years” (74:13-14) — all of which are divisible by 364. If this was not explicit enough, six lunar months of 177 days are compared to the Enochian calendar and 177 is counted according to the weeks and days remaining in Enoch 79:2-4, the same method found in the book of Jubilees. (I.e., “25 weeks and two days” equals 177 days.)

“A year is EXACTLY 364 days”, (Enoch 72:32).

Moreover, the book repeatedly insists that there are 91 days per season, i.e., 13*7, (ch. 82).

Therefore, a year must always be divisible by seven days, and the tally of days even over many years must always be divisible by seven. In this way, the Sabbath and the symmetry of the Sabbath are not broken. For example, this means that the number of days from the week of Passover to the week of Tabernacles will always be divisible by seven no matter how many years elapse between them. And they will always begin Wednesday morning, as does the Spring New Year.

Any system that ignores this principle is not Enochian. It might be Essene — but not Enochian. Both seven and especially seven-times-seven are fundamental to the Enochian calendar, and a break in this order in any way is literally “a transgression”. (Those in Christ are not under such laws. This includes the lunar calendar given to Israel by Moses. Neither sun nor moon rules us. Both were nailed to the cross with its commandments when all went dark at noon.)

Firstfruits and Pentecost

Firstfruits of the Barley and Wheat harvest are always on a Sunday (49 days apart, 7*7).

The Day of Atonement is always on a Friday, every year and forever.

Breaking the harmony of the Sabbath

Some say that the 364-calendar always begins at the Spring Equinox no matter what. One or two days are added at the end of the 364 days in order to adjust to a true solar year of 365.25 so that 8 or 9 days transpire within the last week of the year!

But this, as said, contradicts many verses in the book of Enoch and destroys the cosmic order that began at the very first week of Creation, (Genesis 1).

As a matter of fact, the book of Enoch goes out of its way to calculate eight full years (instead of six) as if to deny any system that even allows for a leap week every seven years.

More about that later.

The Seven Archangels that did NOT transgress

Seven faithful archangels are named in the book of Enoch. They did not transgress God’s cosmic order, (Enoch 20). We will name these shortly. Likely, these angels are the same as the seven who sound the “trumpets” in the book of Revelation, (Rev. 8:6).

If so, the last seven of the 21 angels mentioned in the book of Revelation would then be the seven who pour out the “bowls of wrath”, (Rev. 15:1).

Therefore, perhaps “the seven angels to the seven churches” replace the seven who fell?

If so, “the seven stars in His right hand” restore God’s cosmic order and balance, (Rev. 1:20). Keep in mind that each of these archangels commands tens of thousands under them, (Enoch 71).

Enoch Chapter 20

“And these are the names of the holy angels who watch:

  1. Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is over the world and Tartarus.
  2. Raphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men.
  3. Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries.
  4. Michael, one of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over
  5. Saraqâêl, one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit.
  6. Gabriel, one of the holy angels, who are over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.
  7. Remiel, one of the holy angels, whom God set over those who rise.”
  8. *Phanuel (To this list we add Phanuel. He is frequently mentioned in the Book of Enoch as the last in a quartet. The first three are already part of the above “seven angels,” namely, “Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel.” (Enoch 71:7-9, etc.) Notice that every-other angel is one of the four. Also, the four face in one of four directions, (Enoch 40:2a). Thus, it is logical to deduce that the other four represent the in-between compass directions.

“And on the four sides of the Lord of Spirits I saw four presences…This first is Michael, the merciful and long-suffering: and the second, who is set over all the diseases and all the wounds of the children of men, is Raphael: and the third, who is set over all the powers, is Gabriel: and the fourth, who is set over the repentance unto hope of those who inherit eternal life, is named Phanuel”. (Enoch 40:2a,9)

How the 364-day year is adjusted to the true solar year of 365.2422

The following deductions are the result of 30 years of intensive study of Biblical numbers and calendars and are in keeping with the style and spirit of the book of Enoch. The only certain thing that I am saying here is that there are at least eight ways of intercalating the 364-year to adjust to a true solar year of 365.24219, and which produce the same patterns as found throughout the Bible. 

Even putting the supernatural aside, these are the intercalation methods followers of the 364-calendar would have found attractive in the centuries before Christ and Moses. The fact that the Biblical chronology (and even extra-biblical, such as the Sumerian Tablets) are arranged along the rhythms and cycles produced by a 364-day calendar is strong evidence of this. Cycles involving 7, 12, 13, 19 {Metonic Cycle}, 23, 40, 49 & 50, 60, 49, 215 and their derivatives occur with regularity in the Bible, and in Sumerian chronology. (See, Moses’ Rod Swallows up the Sumerian King List.)

Here are a few of the many examples from the chronology of Noah to demonstrate what I mean by “derivatives”. Noah’s father was half-of 364 years when Noah was born. Noah was 12*40 when God announced the “120 years to the Flood”. 

The Flood occurred 1656 years from creation (72*23) when Noah was “600 years old” (12*50). Noah’s children were born when he was “500” (10*50). He lived another 350 years after the Flood (7*50). Altogether, Noah lived 950 years, (19*50).

12 methodologies (4+8) for adjusting the 360 and 364 calendars to a true solar year

 

  1. Uriel: 23*49*23sq.
  2. Raphael: 21*14*23
    • 360-cal {6 & 40}*98
  3. Raguel: 24*14*10.5
  4. Michael: 6 & 92 (& 12696, a multiple of 6 & 23sq.)
    • 360 cal (6*20*32)
  5. Saraqâêl: 6 & 91 (& 5460, a multiple of 6 & 91 & 364)
  6. Gabriel: 7*4*30*13
    • 360 cal {6 & 40}*96
  1. Remiel: 6*14*10.5
  2. Phanuel 6*15*35
    • 360 cal {6 & 40}*100

Notes on the above 12 methodologies

The first three archangels have a leap month of 28 days; the remaining five only add a week. “The four angels of His presence” in red have the added task of maintaining the 360 calendars, which have a leap-month of 30 days.

Numbers in green is the cycle that a leap-month/week is dropped. The middle two (Michael and Saraqael) have two independent cycles each (6 & 92 and 6 & 91). The rest have just one line of cycles and then multiples of itself.

  • The 360 calendar starts/ends from Julian #1719282 at the birth of Christ (6 BC).

There is also a short-term start from the Exodus, Julian #1193352 (1446 BC).

  • The 364 calendars all start/end from Julian #1719502 (6 BC).

Important note concerning the lead archangel “Uriel”, (Enoch 2:2).

Every 23*49 years both that year and the year prior have a leap month and thereby mark the jubilee year, (392 + 392 days). The only exception to this was in 6 BC, at the end of a green cycle. 23*49*23sq. Is also 23 years of Precession (plus 23 regular years). It corresponds to the 1656 years from Creation to the Flood being 1/360th that amount.

Thus, Uriel rules the “seven stars” of Precession, symbolized by the other seven angels (Rev. 1:20). Together they total 12 calendars. These seven follow Uriel’s lead and are therefore tuned to Uriel’s average solar year, which is 365.2421890594. This will coincide with the exact mean Tropical year in AD 2110 or thereabouts, which is 23*23*4 (46sq.) years from 6 BC.

The 360 and 364 calendars begin at or near the year of Christ’s birth

The 360 calendar begins from Christ’s birth and is part of the 364 calendars (as is the 336 Priestly year). The four calendars usually land on the same day unless viewed over thousands of years. Even then, they differ little. The four are essentially the same, although Michael follows the Moses pattern of 120 years and maintains synchronicity forever with Gabriel.

The 364-calendar usually overlaps with each other as well, although the first three stray further from the spring and autumnal equinox more that the leap-week method because they are adjusted by 28 days rather than just seven. (Remiel or Saraqâêl?) system strays the least from the equinox and should be regarded as the principal system as far as men as concerned. The lunar calendar given to Moses belongs to national Israel. Gabriel’s calendar belongs to the Gentiles. The rest belongs to the angels.

Priestly ‘year’ of 336 days weaves with the 364-day year

12*28 equals the priestly year of 336. Enoch’s 364 simply has a leap-month of 28 days added every year to the Priestly 336. The priestly can be left adjusted or unadjusted by intercalation, depending on the Priestly understanding of the day. It is not a right or wrong answer. It can be both.

Thus, Enoch’s calendar can be viewed as having 12 or 13 months, although the 12-month method (3*30+1, times four) is expressly detailed in the book of Enoch itself. One can rightly compare it to the 12 and 13 tribes of Israel (with the priestly tribe of Levi being the 13th).

No intercalation is a way of “shortening the days”

All systems can be left to run without intercalation — a method of “cutting short the days” for the sake of wrath or grace, as said in Enoch 80:2 and alluded to by Jesus (Matt. 24:22).

“And in the days of sinners, the years shall be shortened.” (Enoch 80:2) (The context refers to the 364-day year beginning too soon due to the difference between a 364 and a true solar year.)

“And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (Matt. 24:22; cf. 29-31).

Therefore, any calendar system that is shorter than a true solar year can be used to “shorten the days”.

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e, 1260 days), clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Rev. 11:3-4)

Enoch’s opening statement: (Book of Enoch)

“The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.

And he took up his parable and said–Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come.” (1:1-2)

 

Who Are the Two Witnesses?

It is common to compare Enoch and Elijah (or Moses and Elijah) to the “Two Witnesses” of Rev. 11. And the parallels between these three and Rev. 11 are strong. But this is not the whole story.

The “Two Witnesses” are an archetype. They represent the prophetic testimony ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses’.

An “archetype” is defined as a recurrent symbol or motif in literature, art, or mythology. “The original pattern or model from which all things of the same kind are copied or on which they are based.” (Dictionary.com)

The Two Witnesses of Rev. 11 are archetypes of a very common pattern found throughout the Bible: Therefore, while it is correct to say that Enoch and Elijah (or Moses and Elijah) best describe Rev. 11, however, this is not the only thing that Rev. 11 is alluding to.

As said, at its core, Rev. 11 is simply the prophetic word, spoken: “from the mouth of two or three witnesses” (Deut. 19:15). Enoch, Moses, and Elijah are the most outstanding Old Testament examples of this. The power of their ministries and the unusual nature of their earthly departures set them apart from all others, (Jude 1:9). These three bear witnesses of Jesus and their lives resemble His in many ways.

Less Obvious “Witnesses”

But whereas these three are closest to the archetype of Rev. 11, there are a host of other less obvious candidates. Recall Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, the High Priest Joshua and governer Zerubabbel (Zech. 4), John the Baptist and Jesus, James and John, and so forth.

And even things can represent “The Two Witnesses”.


Before we continue our discussion, the following is a short digression. We will include these in subsequent articles as well. If in a hurry, skip them.  However, the visuals are more than illustrations. The visuals are the end product of what is written.

Excursus:

Did you know that in the Book of Enoch, it says that Enoch went up to heaven in a whirlwind-chariot (like Elijah) so as not to experience death (Ch. 52:1; 70:1-2); and that like Elijah, people searched for him but could not find him: "For He was not {found}..." (Enoch 12:1-2; Heb. 11:5a)?

Moreover, (according to the book of Enoch), Enoch prophesied about the coming of Elijah. He even said that Elijah would ascend to heaven, 93:8.

Mount of Transfiguration

On the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus shone like the sun as He stood between Moses and Elijah. (This is the same as Mount Hermon, where the wicked "Watchers" descended.) It was atop this Mountain that Jesus was declared by God to be "My Beloved Son", (Matt. 17:5 & 12). Peter, James and John bore witnesses to what was said.

The transfiguration of Jesus, "the Son of Man" parallels that of Enoch's glorification. It sent a clear message to both men and angels:

'Jesus is greater than Enoch, Moses, and Elijah. He has come to reverse the damage done upon this Mountain in the days of Jarod, and also in Eden.'

Notice that Jesus shone like the sun between two lesser lights: Jesus (the Second Enoch) symbolized the day (solar calendar), whereas Moses and Elijah symbolized the lunar calendars of the night.

Peter touched on this when he said: 

"We heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts."

 

Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration: Atop the “Holy Mountain”, i.e., Mount Hermon. (Image styled after the Book of Enoch.) The transfiguration was only a shadow of heavenly realities. In other words, the transfiguration was a snapshot of the heavenly scene. In contradistinction, concerning Lucifer, the Bible says: “You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones,” (Ezek 28:14).

Notice the Sevenfold-Lamp of God in the above complex fractal image. Jesus overlaps the upper middle (main) candlestick.

Notice the “24 Elders” that sit on 24 thrones that surround His Throne.

Notice the two elders who are given special honor, who sit at His immediate right and left. These two are the Two Witnesses of Zechariah ch. 4 — priest and king who anoint His head forever. (Not to be confused with the Untamed Burning Bush that immediately encompasses the Throne, whose seventh branch bursts forth into the Cultivated Tree of Life atop His head. Its root reach within His heart and its branches spread out to form the 24 thrones of the elders).

Below is the same image, but from further back in distance and time. Recall that at the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus’ “countenance became like lightning”, Matt. 17:2. Note the flash of lightning emanating from his feet as He sets His foot upon the mountain. Matt. 24:27,31.

The three mountains on either side seek to flee from before His presence as HE rises up like the sun. Compare image to the below text from the Book of Enoch.

Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. (Another mountaintop narrative.)
“Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them…“You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill can’t be hidden. People don’t light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. ” (Matt. 5:1,2,14)

Large portions of the Book of Enoch would have to be quoted to do justice to what is found in the above image of God’s house/temple. But the following has been chosen because it relates best to the Mount of Transfiguration theme.

“…I saw at the end of the Earth; the firmament of Heaven above. And I went towards the south, and it was burning day and night, where there were seven mountains of precious stones, three towards the east and three towards the south… And the middle one reached to Heaven, like the throne of the Lord, of stibium, and the top of the throne was of sapphire.” (Enoch 18:5b-9)

“…and he showed me a mountain of fire that blazed day and night. And I went towards it and saw seven magnificent mountains. And all were different from one another, and precious and beautiful stones, and all were precious, and their appearance glorious, and their form was beautiful. Three towards the east one fixed firmly on another and three towards the south one on another, and deep and rugged valleys, no one of which was near another.” (24:1-2)

In the above image, notice the “girdle of fire” that pours forth in four directions from the loins of Him who sits on the Throne: The river of life that calves forth like eternal twins, (and if enlarged, indeed also has the appearance of En Gedi, Ezek 47:10; Jer. 13).

“And he translated my spirit into the heaven of heavens,
And I saw there as it were a structure built of crystals,
And between those crystals tongues of living fire. And my spirit saw the girdle which girt that house of fire,
And on its four sides were streams full of living fire,
And they girt that house. And round about were Seraphin, Cherubic, and Ophannin: And these are they who sleep not
And guard the throne of His glory.” (71:5-7)

These fractal images are produced by the math supplied by the Bible and the Book of Enoch. They are the outcome of Enoch’s geometry and his equations, which are also found in the Bible. We will explain these as we work through the Book of Enoch and the 364 Calendar. I will include similar images as illustrations as we proceed. This should make the math more interesting to look at.

The image is, of course, is symbolic of greater realities.

For example, note the four massive and terrifying archangels at the extreme perimeter of the above image, (the lower one is out of range).

This image has been turned 90 degrees and cropped from the above image to help locate the four archangels. (Horns symbolize strength.) Since Michael and Gabriel face West and East, therefore this would either be Raphael or Phanuel, (Enoch 71:9-13 and elsewhere.)

They interlock, each their four wings, and watch over the eight-sided wheel of time that wraps the Seven-Pointed star of God (the Church) and the 24 Elders. Like the hands on a 24-hour clock the structure marks days, weeks, months years, and years of years, and the Precession of the Stars forever, (Enoch 80-82).

Thus, while these four angels, each 91 “days” apart, are real entities, however, their depiction of guarding space-time is metaphorical. The depiction simply means that they “watch” over God’s creation to keep out chaos and maintain order.

Stop thinking that prophecy is unilateral. Think fractal. The only ONE that ALL Prophecy is about is Christ. Logically, therefore, the rest must necessarily be self-similar (like a fractal).


Things that represent “Two Witnesses”

We are not restricted to people as “two witnesses”. The Two Witnesses of Rev. 11 can represent a host of things: Jew and Gentile, king and priest, man and women, sun and moon, day and night, summer and winter, east and west, right and left, heaven and earth, land and sea. All these and more are described as two witnesses in the Bible, directly or inferred.

In our study, we will focus on Enoch and his calendar. We will examine the witness of the sun and moon. The Bible and the Book of Enoch will be our main source of information.

Why the sun and the moon?

In the book of Enoch, the sun and moon are the main witnesses called upon in his book to testify against the fallen Watchers/Angels (ch.1-5). And positively, the sun and moon also testify to God’s Oath/Promise of a New Creation. This is the main message of the Book of Enoch.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” (Gen 1:14).

“…his offspring will endure forever, and his throne will be like the sun before Me, like the moon, established forever, a faithful witness in the sky.” (Psalm 89:36-37)

Take another look at this verse…

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e, 1260 days), clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Rev. 11:3-4)

In the next series of articles, we will examine Enoch and his two faithful witnesses, that is “the two candlesticks”. The one lamp that rules the day, the other that rules the night. Enoch typifies the candlestick of the sun (solar calendar), whereas Moses typifies the night (lunar calendar). These are the two candlesticks that give light upon the earth. And their witness is One. And their witness concerns One: The Son of Man.

“This is what the Lord says: ‘If I have not made my covenant with day and night and established the laws of heaven and earth, then I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes (as in 1948) and have compassion on them.’ ” (Jer. 33:24-25). Jesus is the prophesied “Son”, the Light of the World who rules both day and night!

My Approach to the Book of Enoch

My life’s work and calling, for the past 30 years, mainly regards biblical calendars and their associated patterns. These patterns form the hidden skeletal outline concerning the timing of every event in the Bible, large and small, and of the nations.

The orderly motions of the cosmos is demonstrated by the 364-day calendar of Enoch. “Orderliness”, as demonstrated by this calendar, is fundamental to his book because this calendar reveals the POWER of “The Son of Man”. This is because the Son of Man is the one who holds all things together “by the word of his oath”, (that is, ‘by the Word of His power’), Enoch 69. The Son maintains the courses of the sun, moon, and stars, and they, in turn, govern all things.

“And these are the secrets of this oath… the heaven was suspended before the world was created, and forever… And this oath is mighty over them and through it they are preserved and their paths are preserved, and their course (ie., the circuit of the sun, moon, stars, and even weather) is not destroyed… and they (the angels) rejoiced because the name of that Son of Man had been revealed unto them. And he sat on the throne of his glory“… And henceforth there shall be nothing corruptible; For that Son of Man has appeared, and has seated himself on the throne of his glory, and all evil shall passway before his face…” Enoch 69:16,25,26b,27a,29

Carefully compare this to the opening words of the Book of Hebrews. Such parallels are numerous throughout the New Testament, and in the old.

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets (such as “Enoch”, Heb 11:5) at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son (i.e., “The Son of Man”!), whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son  is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.”

This completes our introduction into Enoch and his calendar.
