ETs and the Bible
Written By: Jeff Behnke

Okay. Well...to hell with it. I'm not gonna do an intro. Let's just roll up our sleeves and write.
For starters, not all the books of the bible are included within the Bible as we know it. You can often find small references to such things as The Book of Jashar, The Book of Jubilees (sic), and the Book of Enoch. What were in those books and why were they not included when the Bible was slapped together by our ancestors? What was in those documents that didn't float with them? Were they trash? Were they not 'inspired by God?'
One of the more influential extra-biblical books which was surprisingly not included is the book of Enoch. Obviously, the man must have known quite a bit of things, considering that God loved him so much that in Genesis 5:22, it is written: " And after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether Enoch lived 365 years. Enoch walked with God then he was no more, because God took him away."
Just a vague metaphor for death? He walked with God then he was no more, because God took him away? Took him away where? Why did he take him away? Obviously, he had to know something about spirituality and the grand mystery of life. Who else in the Bible was taken away like Enoch?
And you can't just rip out an important ancient book and expect no holes. If you attend church at all and you know a few inquisitive kids, they'll ask about Goliath and the Mighty Men. They'll ask about the descendents of Raph, some of which had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. They'll ask about the Giants that supposedly filled the land of Canaan just before the Israelites settled down and took over. They'll ask about the 'huge Egyptians' whose spearheads alone weighed over 40 pounds. They'll ask about the Nephilim and the 'sons of God' who had sex with the daughters of men. They'll ask what Ezekiel meant when he spoke of the Watchers. And when they ask these questions, the well-meaning teacher will tell them that some mysteries are not explained in the Bible, that there are no answers. That's what I have been told for years, and I never quite bought it.
Is it true that there are no answers to some things, or is it just that the Bible doesn't include all the important texts? I offered many times to look up the information from older sources and history books but was discouraged consistently because it broke the holy rule of 'do not add nor take away from God's word.' But what if the ancestors 'took something away' in a bad decision?
In Genesis 6:4 "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the Sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children with them. They were the hero's of old, men of renown."
Okay, so WHO are the Nephilem? (sic) That's what I wanted to know.
The Bible cannot offer an explanation of this passage without checking in with the Book of Enoch. But the Book of Enoch is not considered a holy script. Why? I don't know, because it fills in all the holes, and offers some ancient explanations, albeit religiously motivated ones. Of course the whole Bible is religiously motivated, so it makes no sense for me to point that out.
I'd advise you to find the Book of Enoch online one day or buy it in a store and go through it. Here are a few excerpts. Now, you can take the 'Judgment Day' (sic) material and tone of the writing any way that you want to. I have my own opinions, but these texts offer a clue into the great mysterious world of Grays, Nordics, Reptilians, pyramids, and whatever else you feel like tacking on to the list. The fact remains, Enoch had visions before 'God took him away' and these are just some of the things that he saw and recorded:
FROM THE BOOK OF ENOCH"Go speak to the Watchers of Heaven, who have sent you to intercede for them. Tell them, You should intercede for men, and not men for you. Why did you leave lofty holy Heaven to sleep with women, to defile yourselves with the daughters of men and take them as your wives, and like the children of the earth to beget sons, in your case giants?
Though you were holy and spiritual, living the eternal life, you defiled yourself with the blood of women, you begot children with the blood of flesh, and like the others you have lusted after flesh and blood as do those who die and perish.
Because they perish I gave them wives so they might impregnate them, have children, and nothing be lacking on the earth. But you were spiritual and immortal for all generations of the world. so I gave you no wives, for Heaven is your proper dwelling place. And now the giants, offspring of spirit and flesh, will be called spirits on the earth, and earth shall be their dwelling. Their bodies emitted evil spirits because they were born from human women and the holy Watchers.
The giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack over the earth. Although they hunger and thirst, they do not eat. They offend.
These spirits will rise up against men and women because they proceed from them. "The giants will slaughter, unpunished, until the day of the great judgment. Then the age, the Watchers, and the godless will be wholly consummated.
As for the Watcher who sent you to intercede for them, tell them: 'You were in Heaven but the mysteries were not revealed to you. You knew worthless ones, and in the hardness of your hearts you revealed these to women, and through these secrets women and men work much evil earth.' Say to them, 'You have no peace.'"
ENOCH'S JOURNEYS THROUGH SHEOL AND HEAVEN"And the archangel Uriel said to me, 'Here shall stand the angels who have been attached to women. Their spirits, assuming many different forms, are defiling mankind and will lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as gods. Here they shall stand till the day of the winds of Heaven which turn and bring the circumference of the sun and all the stars to their setting..."
ENOCH'S ASCENT TO THE FIFTH HEAVEN "And the men carried me up on to the fifth heaven, and I saw there many troops, Grigori, and their appearance was human and their size greater than that of great giants and their faces withered, and the silence of their mouths perpetual, and there was no service on the fifth heaven, and I said to the men who were with me, 'Why are their faces melancholy and withered, their mouths silent, and why is there no service on this heaven?'
And they said to me, 'These are the Grigori, who with their prince Satanail, rejected the Lord of light, and after them are those who are held in great darkness on the second heaven and three of them went down to earth from the Lord's throne to the place Ermon, and broke through their vows on the shoulder of the hill Ermon and saw how good are the daughters of men. They took them as their wives, and befouled the earth with their deeds, and in all times of their age were lawless and promiscuous. Giants (Nephilim) were born and marvelous big men and great enmity.
And therefore God judged them with great punishment, and they weep for their brethren and they will be punished on the Lord's great day.'"
There you have it
So, where does all this lead? What can we do with it? What is it telling us? What can we learn from it?
More good questions. But the fact remains: these people saw things that weren't from earth, and they gave them many names. Angels, demons, Gilgori, the Watchers, the Nephilim, Goliath, the descendents of Raph...Take your pick. They admitted seeing something. Why can't we?
Personally, I often wonder who "God" REALLY is and what he is trying to do to us. I often wonder what history would look like, what our spiritual life would look like, if we had the damn truth out for pete's sake. Maybe we all wouldn't be running around trying to find the right religion that would save our asses. I failed them all. Now just let me have the truth.
And I hope you want it too...
