Note the predominance of multiples of seven, as well as the solar year of 365 and half-364 (“182”). “22 x 182” equals a solar cycle of 11 years. All are Enochian timeframes. Both “25920” (2160 x 12) and “25800 (2150 x 12)” are One Year of Precession of the stars. The drifting of stars off their circular course is a major conundrum in the Book of Enoch.

Before we address Enoch’s prophecy of the seven epochs of 490 years each that span from Creation to Christ, first some words about why the book of Enoch is important for today.

The timing of the renewed interest of the book of Enoch with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947 is significant. It anticipates the repeat of the sin of the Watchers.

Footnote: The "Watchers" is a general designation for a certain class of high ranking angels. They "watch" over men and the cosmos to make sure that order is maintained, and then report back to God. However, some 20 of these rebelled, along with another 180 under their authority, "200 hundred in all" (Enoch 6:6). The final total who rebel is one million, as deduced from the hierarchy of Enoch 69:3 with 6:8, i.e., 20*10*50*100.
What was the sin of the Watchers?

“In the days of Jarod” (Enoch’s father), these angels mixed their DNA with men, animals, and plants. This resulted in giant men and monstrous creatures. This was the main reason why God sent the flood of Noah. A new creation was needed,  a reset, because, except for Noah, all men had corrupted their way upon the earth.

Jesus said:

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matt. 24:37

This sort of mixture of men and animals is happening again today and is being weaponized. God’s warning from the book Enoch applies to today because the sin is the same today, and so are the consequences. Indeed, the very first verse of Enoch claims to be a message for our day, i.e., “for those living in the day of tribulation,” (Enoch 1:1.)

Order and Chaos

However, there is another reason why the book of Enoch is important for these last days. And that reason is found in the verse immediately following the place where Jude quotes from in the New Testament.

“Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” (Jude 1:14-15)

Let us continue to read from the Book of Enoch, from the very next verse, (which is addressed to the fallen angels)…

“Observe ye everything that takes place in the heaven, how they do not change their orbit, and the luminaries which are in the heaven, how they all rise and set in order each in its season, and transgress not against their appointed order. … but ye–ye have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of the Lord…” (Enoch 2:1, 4a)

In other words, the book of Enoch is saying that the orderliness of God’s creation testifies to their disorder (“transgression”). They are without excuse.

Footnote: Compare this with Romans 1:18-32, "Therefore they are without excuse, because since the creation of the world...etc." Likely the Apostle Paul had Enoch 1-7 in mind here as evident by his stress on sexual transgression. Also see the Book of Jude.
An orderly creation testifies to the following:
  1. That these Watchers have transgressed, (i.e., they have caused chaos in God’s orderly universe)
  2. That the 364-days calendar is God’s clear testimony to men and angels of divine order. Moreover, it points to the day of their doom and is marked on the calendar
  3. An orderly creation testifies that God’s children will eventually rule over their enemies, as surely as day follows night

And in keeping with the theme of an orderly cosmos, the Book of Enoch prophesies that the Enochic calendar (“workings of the cosmos”) would be fully revealed at the end of the seventh cycle of “seventy weeks”. It seems that the seven-cycles of 490 years complete its course twice: at the First and Second Coming of the “Son of Man,” (Enoch 93:9-14; cf., Daniel 9).

Sevenfold Light

“And after that in the seventh week (i.e., a “week” of generations of 70 years, see verse 3)… at its close shall the elect… receive sevenfold instruction concerning all His creation.” (Enoch 93:10-14).

The prophesied, “sevenfold light” was given to men when Jesus came the first time, by His Apostles and prophets.

However, it seems logical that this prophecy of Enoch is also fulfilled a second time just before His Second Coming, not foundationally, but an expansion of what was revealed the first time. One thing held in reserve until these last days is the understanding of the workings of “the cosmic order”. And this is now revealed, both to secular men by way of science, but more importantly, to His servants by way of the revelation of Christ as revealed by an orderly cosmos.

Cosmic Clock of Prophetic Potentials

The heavens are a cosmic clock that keeps track of the passage of time using extremely complex cycles and rhythms.

However, these complex rhythms, like the many hands of a complex watch, have been, and still are, tracking every event recorded in the Bible and in world history. All events occur in an orderly fashion in conjunction with the sun, moon, and stars thereby demonstrating a non-random universe.

Biblical events tend to clump together along the scaffold of these rhythms like the skeleton of the body upon which the flesh hangs.  Or to use a secular analogy, these rhythms in time are like the invisible filaments affected by “dark matter” that gravitationally pull on the visible universe so that wherever this invisible dark matter is densest, the likelihood of the visible universe clumped around it is proportionally more likely.

The cycles and rhythms of God’s clock act like gravity; they inexorably pull all things towards His master plan — toward the written destinies of both men and angels, yet without impeding freewill.

This does not mean that future events are easily predictable, but rather that the probability when major events occur is predictable, and even what type of event.

By analogy, crucial events occur in history in proportion to how ‘dense’ the invisible filaments of the universe are. Or to use another analogy, they increase according to how loud the crescendo of overlapping chimes on God’s cosmic clock is when they periodically chime all at once. It’s at these mountain-peak moments along God’s timeline that new chapters in redemptive history ring out.

The pattern is obvious in hindsight but murky beforehand when as yet they are mere potentials, even if high in probability. Only God knows the end from the beginning because He is the Beginning and the End.

(Wiki) “In the standard model of the evolution of the universe, galactic filaments form along and follow web-like strings of dark matter. It is thought that this dark matter dictates the structure of the Universe on the grandest of scales. Dark matter gravitationally attracts baryonic matter, and it is this “normal” matter that astronomers see forming long, thin walls of super-galactic clusters.”

Chart for “Seventy generations of 70 years” of the Book of Enoch, the key to all other chronologies

Click here for best quality

The chronologies of Luke and Matthew are simply variations of the Book of Enoch, (as is Genesis in the MT, LXX, SP with the “Key of 23“. This even includes the Tablets of Sumer!)

“…Adam, the son of God”, Luke 3:38.

Adam was created at age 70, as implied: “You shall die in the day that you eat from the tree”, that is 70 + “930” = 1000 years. (“A day is as 1000 yrs.”)

Apparently, Luke understood this extra “70-years” as a foreshadowing of the pre-incarnate Christ who came ’77 generations’ later. 

However, Matthew counts three sets of “14 generations” to Abraham (and stops). Thus, Abraham is born in 2876 BC, which is ‘490 x 2’ to the Abraham of Book of Enoch (1896 BC).

(Note: Matthew overlaps the generation of the exile in order to ALSO allow a rounded 40 generations to Christ.)

Matthew and Luke trace their genealogies through the line of Judah, not Levi so that the Conquest of Canaan occurs three generations later. (See “Nahshon” in Wiki.).

Footnote: See note in the chart about the seven-days/years of creation, and its effects on the chronology.

In the Book of Jubilees, both Cain and Abel are born when Adam was 70 and 77 years of age, (Bk Jub 4:1). The fall of man occurred "seven years exactly" after creation, (Jub 3:7).

Luke likely had a similar notion about the fall of man because from the pre-incarnate "Son of God" unto the fall of man adds up to 77 years. This is likely why Luke records 77 generations unto the redemption of man from the original transgression -- a year for each generation, similar to the Bk. of Enoch.

Many manuscript fragments of both the Book of Jubilees and Enoch were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls that date to the period just before Luke and prove that such concepts well known to scholars of that time period. Interestingly, the final 12th cave of Qumaram was discovered 70 years after the initial discovery of the other eleven caves, 77 generations after 3366 BC, etc. Also count cycles of 483-solar years ("490 yrs" of 360 days). See "Key of 23".

3366 BC less 3360 years = 6 BC, and 3360 is itself ten priestly years of 336 days! (See Luke 1:5)

Enoch’s Prophetic Outline: Pre-Creation to Christ (70 gen.), and 30 more to the “Appearing of the New Heaven”

You can read the prophecy of Enoch at this link: Book of Enoch 91-93. Note the odd way that the last three cycles of 490 years appear out of order, that is, before the other seven cycles! This is a strong hint to the importance of the internal three-plus-seven and seven-plus-three pattern found throughout.

Enoch utilizes idealistic generations of 70 years, which he says is symbolic of just one day. Therefore one day equals 70 years. (Compare to Daniel 9.)

The parallels between the Book of Enoch and the Bible are self-explanatory.

The following is meant to be an aid to the chart.

Enoch 91-93 — (One day equals seventy years)
  1. “In the 1st week”: 7 generations (i.e., “7 days”) span from “God” to Enoch’s birth (or from Adam to Enoch’s ascension).  “I (Enoch) was born the seventh (day/generation) in the first week…” Enoch 93:3. The chart has 7 gen. to his birth as does Luke 3:37,38, likely the traditional understanding
  2. “In the 2nd week”: 7 gen. from Enoch to Noah’s Flood and “Cainan” of Luke 3:36, inclusive. (Notice ref. to Noahide Laws. See Bk of Jub 7:20-28.) 
  3. “In the 3rd week”: 7 gen. from Shelah to Terah, incl. (“The plant of righteousness”, 93:5, is Abraham, elected at birth through Terah at “70”, Gen 11:26-27. Compare to Enoch. One can instead begin from Creation unto Abraham incl., but in this chart, we follow the path of Luke that begins at “God”. The omission of LXX Cainan has the same effect.)
  4. “In the 4th week”: 7 gen. from Abraham to Moses of the Exodus/Tabernacle/Conquest, incl.
  5. “In the 5th week”: 7 gen. from Moses to King David, incl. (David prepared for the temple in every way, but it was built 3.5 yrs into his son’s reign. Both the Bible and Enoch accredit the temple indirectly to David, 1Chron 22-29. David lived “70 yrs”, 2Sam. 5:4.)
  6. “In the 6th week”: 7 gen. from Solomon to the 70-yr exile, incl. or excl., Enoch is ambiguous
  7. “In the 7th week”: 7 gen. from the exile unto Messiah and the prophesied “sevenfold increase of light” (of revelation). (The Messiah is here called, “The Eternal Plant of Righteousness”.) The “70-weeks” of Daniel 9 is the same as the 7th “week” of Enoch 93:9-14 
  8. “In the 8th week”: 7 gen. (Enoch 91)
  9. “In the 9th week”: 7 gen. (Enoch 91)
  10. “In the 10th week”: 7 gen. (Enoch 91)
From the Exodus to Now

Now let us view the above prophecy of seven weeks (of generations) again, except this time beginning from the Exodus rather than from Creation.

There have elapsed seventy weeks of seventy years from Moses unto our generation. That is, from the 40 years between the Exodus to when Israel entered the Promised Land (1446-1406 BC), plus 7*7*70 more years to our generation equals AD 1985 to 2025.

Observe that if one begins from the Exodus (a type of ‘new creation’ instead of the literal Creation), then a general parallel between the events listed in Enoch’s prophecy, except now from the Exodus to our day, reemerges.

How long is a generation?

A generation can be 40, 70, or 100 years in the Bible. However, in the Book of Enoch, it is logically 70 years. The number seven predominates the book, as it does also in the Book of Jubilees (and Book of Revelation). Furthermore, we have Daniel 9 that concurs.

Footnote: "Plant of Righteousness"

Compare the third "week" with the seventh in Enoch's prophecy. They both refer to the "Plant of Righteousness" and their seed/elect. This has the effect that what is said about Abraham can also be true of Jesus. And the parallel is not by accident, for the prophecy about Abraham also goes on to prophecy about Abraham's seed, the Messiah.

"After that in the third week at its close...a man shall be elected (i.e., Abraham), and his posterity shall become the plant of righteousness for evermore," (93:5).

And the above statement is explicitly said to be fulfilled at the end of the seventh "week", where the "posterity" of Abraham is again called, "The Eternal Plant of Righteousness," (93:10, cf., 10:15) upon whom the elect "hang" (38:2).

  1. There are many interpretations of when the 70th year Jubilee will occur and the 70th week timeline. However just for my better understanding, will the tribulation start after the 70th Jubilee or will it conclude at the 70th Jubilee? Also what are your thoughts on the coming asteroid Apophis due to impact the earth on April 13, 2029. It’s supposed to be the size I think of 3 football fields. Some are saying this is “the sign” in the sky before the son of man comes in the clouds in Matthew 24. The asteroid date is also supposedly 3.5 yrs after the feast of tabernacles -the last trump before the herold (sign) before Christ comes (rapture).

    1. Thanks for your question.
      While there may be many opinions about 70 jubilees, one thing that’s for sure: the great majority of scholars (evangelical) now accept 1406 BC as the date of the Conquest, which is the official start of the jubilees, and that the majority of scholars also agree with the plain text of the Bible that a jubilee is 7 x 7 years. Hence, 70 jubilees come to AD 2025. Many have notions based upon merely a few months or years of research, whose views spread out because they happen to have a loud megaphone. However, it is not their lifelong study and so their views only confuse.

      We all like complex things simplified. We like it black and white. But the fact is there are many possible paths God may take when the final Shemita (seven years) unfolds. It can be before or after the 70th, or perhaps in between. Moreover, the “time, times, and half-a-time” interweave so that different themes follow different timelines so as to interact with one another. Many times in the past the “seven-years” has played out in various ways, foreshadowing the final climax. By spending much time studying the math of the foreshadows one soon realizes the infinite possibilities of the climactic final fulfillment. And this is why “no man knows the day or the hour”.

      About Apophis: I wrote about Apophis in-depth in early 2007. My main point of that article is the timing of the announcement that there was a 2.7 percent chance of Apophis hitting the earth coincided with the great tsunami that killed 300,000 people, as a warning of what would be even worse if an asteroid ever hit the ocean. I also speak about another heavenly sign that occurred at the same time in Saggitarius.
      I wrote:

      “”Apophis is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern on December 25-27, 2004, because initial observations indicated a relatively large probability (up to 2.7%) that it would strike the Earth in 2029. Additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029.”

      (Sagittarius-Dec. 27-2004—Blast.) 1,260,000 days from the Exodus in 1446 BC. The day, in turn, symbolized the ‘year’ when Israel entered Egypt 430 years, 1876 BC. An incredible display of numerics and perfect timing! The code reads: “Did He miss the mark? No!” A perfect bows-eye by Sagittarius, who aims at the scorpion (Scorpio)!

      At the same time, the great Tsunami struck (Dec. 26), and also the greatest pulse from a starburst ever recorded by far. A most unusual and powerful event. But in this document, we look at Apophis.

      Apep (Apophis) was the god of darkness and chaos in Egypt and was seen as a giant snake, crocodile, serpent, or in later years, in a few cases, like a dragon. (God is bringing the gods of Egypt in judgment again, as he did when the Israelites left Egypt 1260 x 1000 days before this — to the very day!) “

      https://www.bible-codes.org/apophis.htm

      I this article I mainly write about its meaning numerically and thematically. However, I see it as a warning rather than the real deal, and I have not changed my mind.

      As early as a few years ago I briefly refer to Apophis and display a prophetic image of a meteor striking the mountain. Actually, the Lord has revealed this warning many times. For example, see the sign of the meteor striking the moon during the blood-moon eclipse an hour after posting a prophetic image of the same.
      https://1260d.com/2019/01/25/meteorite-hits-moon-exact-minute-of-2019-eclipse/
      Meteor in the shape of a skull at top of a mountain just below the sun and moon as they eclipse

      But I repeat, I do not have a witness in my spirit that Apophis is anything other than a warning of some unknown meteor in the future striking the earth.

      Also, see https://1260d.com/2018/12/18/part-two-mene-tekel-peresin-the-gods-are-judged/

      God bless you in your own studies!

  2. The calendar of Enoch works only with a intercalary year on every 4th year.
    364 + 364 + 364 + 369 on the intercalary year, in order to stay in sync,
    with the 4 years of the the Solar cycle of 1,461 days.
    The calendar of God works with an intercalary year of 381 days
    360 +360 +360 +381 = 1,461 days
    The Gregorian works with an intercalary of 1 day per 4 years,
    365 + 365 + 365 + 366 = 1,461 days.

    1. Interesting way of approaching it. However, both fail to accomplish the fundamental problem of maintaining symmetry. The 364 calendar emphasizes time as divided into even weeks which your addition of 5 days destroys, and the 360 puts an emphasis on months of 30 days with your addition of 21 days destroys.

      But still, interesting, though wrong.

  3. Question,
    4900 years = 100 x 7 x 7, Leviticus 25:8, And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
    Jubilee years are 50 year increments. So 98 Jubilees also = 4900 years.
    49 x 50 = 2450 { Sabbath x Jubilee }
    So in 2450 years from day 1 Sabbath and Jubilee would be the same day.
    Is there a special name for this day?
    And as a coincidence 2450 x 2 = 4900.

  4. So let me get this straight. You left out 3 entire weeks to Enochs prophesy, then justify it by saying “I didnt want to over complicate things”?
    Unreal!

    1. Yep!

      Note to reader: Study the chapters in Enoch to do with this prophecy for yourself and judge for yourself whether my analysis is obviously correct. Also, you will see why the extra three weeks (490 x 3 years) in the text appear out of order and may have been a later addition to Enoch.

      I never claim that Enoch is inspired like the Bible, only that it contains things that are true, but not everything. The Bible is the touchstone that tests all things.

      Sounds like a touched a nerve, Matthew!

  5. Hello, can i ask something about what happening today that can link about fulfilled in the Prophecy of Enoch. Sorry about my english grammar .

  6. Direct from Enoch
    And Enoch began to recount from the books and said:

    ‘ I was born the seventh in the first week,

    While judgement and righteousness still endured.

    4 And after me there shall arise in the second week great wickedness,

    And deceit shall have sprung up;

    And in it there shall be the first end.

    And in it a man shall be saved;

    And after it is ended unrighteousness shall grow up,

    And a law shall be made for the sinners.

    And after that in the third week at its close

    A man shall be elected as the plant of righteous judgement,

    And his posterity shall become the plant of righteousness for evermore.

    6 And after that in the fourth week, at its close,

    Visions of the holy and righteous shall be seen,

    And a law for all generations and an enclosure shall be made for them.

    7 And after that in the fifth week, at its close,

    The house of glory and dominion shall be built for ever.

    8 And after that in the sixth week all who live in it shall be blinded,

    And the hearts of all of them shall godlessly forsake wisdom.

    And in it a man shall ascend;

    And at its close the house of dominion shall be burnt with fire,

    And the whole race of the chosen root shall be dispersed.

    9 And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise,

    And many shall be its deeds,

    And all its deeds shall be apostate.

    10 And at its close shall be elected

    The elect righteous of the eternal plant of righteousness,

    To receive sevenfold instruction concerning all His creation.

    11 [For who is there of all the children of men that is able to hear the voice of the Holy One without being troubled ? And who can think His thoughts ? and who is there that can behold all the works 12 of heaven ? And how should there be one who could behold the heaven, and who is there that could understand the things of heaven and see a soul or a spirit and could tell thereof, or ascend and see 13 all their ends and think them or do like them ? And who is there of all men that could know what is the breadth and the length of the earth, and to whom has been shown the measure of all of them ? 14 Or is there any one who could discern the length of the heaven and how great is its height, and upon what it is founded, and how great is the number of the stars, and where all the luminaries rest ?]

    [Chapter 91]

    12 And after that there shall be another, the eighth week, that of righteousness,

    And a sword shall be given to it that a righteous judgement may be executed on the oppressors,

    And sinners shall be delivered into the hands of the righteous.

    13 And at its close they shall acquire houses through their righteousness,

    And a house shall be built for the Great King in glory for evermore,

    14d And all mankind shall look to the path of uprightness.

    14a And after that, in the ninth week, the righteous judgement shall be revealed to the whole world,

    b And all the works of the godless shall vanish from all the earth,

    c And the world shall be written down for destruction.

    15 And after this, in the tenth week in the seventh part,

    There shall be the great eternal judgement,

    In which He will execute vengeance amongst the angels.

  7. Question.

    Have you actually read the book of Enoch. If so, you must have missed week 8, 9 and 9.

    And they are not 490 days–they are 1000 day for each of the 10–not 7, weeks

    1. Hi,
      Yes I am fully aware of that, but did not wish to overcomplicate things. You will notice that weeks 8-10 are out of order. They occur before the other seven. This is likely because they are a later addition to the text.

      However, God is sovereign either way. It happens that both ten weeks and seven weeks are true. In time I will explain all that, the Lord willing.

      4900 and 3430 years are indeed both very significant and tie-in together perfectly. But as I said, I have learned that if one overcomplicates something, fewer bother to read the post in this age of instant gratification.

      If you go to my 360calendar.com converter you will see that the Egyptian calendar is about 4900 years and this period represents a pivotal date in the Sumerian Kings List. Please see https://1260d.com/2017/09/29/moses-rod-swallows-sumerian-king-list/ for the exact dates.

      But the reality is, I think, that the extra three “weeks” are a later addition. I speculate that they were added when things did not end on the seventh week as anticipated, and so a few more “weeks” were added. The book of Enoch is not inspired in the same sense as the rest of the Bible and is clearly the result of numerous editorial additions. Ascertaining what belongs to the original Enoch is always tentative at best.

      1. this 3 weeks are the 21 added days to the calendar of god that synchronize it to the solar year
        48 x 30 = 1440 + 21 = 1461. there are 1461 days in a 4 year period. in Gods calendar 48 months = 1440 days the 49th month[ the intercalary month } is the 21 days.
