Men Were Created Exactly Like Angels

In the Complete Book of Enoch – Book 3 – Chapter 1 – Birth of Noah, we can read some extremely interesting information. Enoch is writing about how his son Methuselah chose a wife for his own son, Lamech. Through that marriage was born Noah. We all know about Noah and the Great Flood. But how many of us know about the events around Noah’s birth?

Beginning with verse 2, we read: (Describing Noah) “And his body was white as snow and red as the blooming of a rose, and the hair of his head and his long locks were white as wool, and his eyes beautiful. And when he opened his eyes, he lighted up the whole house like the sun, and the whole house was very bright.”

Verse 3 – “And thereupon he arose in the hands of the midwife, opened his mouth, and conversed with the Lord of righteousness.”

When Noah’s father, Lamech, saw this he ran in fear to his father Methuselah, who in turn went to speak with his father Enoch.

The first time I read this, I thought Noah must have been born an albino, but after further study, I have found this is not true. So why was Noah born looking different from others?

Further on we read that when Methuselah found Enoch, in verse 10 Methuselah further describes to his father, Enoch, about the appearance of Noah: “…the like of whom there is none, and his nature is not like man’s nature, and the color of his body is whiter than snow and redder than the bloom of a rose, and the hair of his head is whiter than white wool, and his eyes are like rays of the sun, and he opened his eyes and there upon lighted up the whole house.”

Verse 11: “And he arose in the hands of the midwife, and opened his mouth and blessed the Lord of heaven.”

I can imagine why Lamech would be scared of what had been given him for a son. Understand what is written here. When Noah was born, not only was his skin “whiter than snow” and “redder than the bloom of a rose,” but his hair, being “whiter than wool,” had long locks. This certainly does not describe any new born baby I’ve ever seen. But understand further. Noah stood up at birth and spoke words and blessed the “Lord of heaven.”

What does this all mean?

We can learn from the reading of many of the other “Hidden Scriptures” that certain events were more detailed than the canonical Scriptures give us and than what we have been taught in the Churches throughout the world. For example, the birth of Jesus Christ did not happen in the manger of a stable in Bethlehem but in an underground cave somewhere between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

When shepherds and others came to the cave where the Christ child was born, the baby Jesus stood up and talked with many of those visitors. It was later, approximately 5 to 8 days after the birth, that Mary and Joseph took the baby and went on to Bethlehem where, because there were no rooms at the inn, stayed in the stable. In the stable is where the “Wise Men” visited and they too were astonished to witness the 5-day-old infant walking and talking with them.

In Genesis 1, verses 26 and 27 we read of God’s creation of man: “Let us make man in our image according to our likeness…”

“Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female.”

Readers need be made aware that it wasn’t until AFTER the sin in the Garden and Adam and Eve were booted out that that their “image” and “likeness” of who they were fashioned after began to change. God created all of us “as angels” but our sin changed our nature and our appearance.

In the Complete Book of Enoch – Book 3 – Chapter 4 – Secrets of the Parables – We read the following: (Enoch is revealing to his son Methuselah the secrets of the Parables of which Enoch was shown in a vision) “For men were created exactly like the angels, to the intent that they should continue pure and righteous, and death, which destroys everything, could not have taken hold of them but through this their knowledge they are perishing, and through this power it is consuming men.”

It was known before Noah was born that God was going to destroy the world with a Great Flood. God knew Noah would be the man and thus the reason for him being born “created exactly like the angels” in order that he could carry out the task of building an ark to save his seed and two of every kind of animal.

I do not believe that Noah was born an albino but was born more to resemble the likeness of our creation…i.e. that “men were created exactly like the angels.” It is our sin that has caused us to be trapped in this fleshly existence of darkness limiting us in our communion with our Creator and having understanding of the Mysteries of Heaven.

Yahweh Gives, Man Takes Away (Known as Stealing)

I was sent a news story that actually appears in the Western AG Reporter (online – free subscription required). There is nothing special or unique about this story. It seems to be repeated every day. A man struggles to exercise the commands and rights given him by his Creator in order to make a living raising ranch animals.

I can only speak for what is obviously going on in America with a perverted love fest between misled and misguided citizens and animals in general.

We’ve all heard the cliche love is blind. Well, there is so much unnatural “love” for animals, much of the inhabitants of this country are so blinded they are failing to see Yahweh’s purpose in his creation of all animals and the “dominion” he gave his children over that resource.

Much of what the Scriptures talk about concerning unnatural affection for any animal is addressing having sex with an animal. We know that exists and has for centuries. This is not the perversion of which I am referring.

Some people also like to cherry-pick passages from Scripture that they believe instructs us not to “abuse” the animals. The King James Bible online groups together their idea of verses instructing us about animal cruelty. I will tell you now it is near impossible to understand the verses selected without having the full context, do yourself a favor and do your homework. In general, Yahweh tells us that we should take care of our beasts of burden, much in the same way that a man that makes his living driving a truck should take care of his truck. It is difficult for most people to separate their understanding of the differences between animal cruelty and responsibly taking care of the resource Yahweh gave us.

Let’s look at the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1 beginning at verse 24 where Moses describes Yahweh’s creation of the animals of the world and describes His intent and purposes. (Note: Contained in [brackets] you will find word, terms, and definitions from the original Hebrew in hopes that it might help you better understand.)

24 ¶ Moreover God said, Let the earth bring forth [yâtsâ’ – go (causatively bring) out, in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, direct and proximate] the living thing [nephesh – a breathing creature, that is, animal or (abstractly) vitality; used very widely in a literal, accommodated or figurative sense] to his kind, cattle, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth according to his kind, and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kind, and the cattle according to his kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 Furthermore God said, Let us make man in our image according to our likeness, and let them rule [râdâh – to tread down, that is, subjugate; specifically to crumble off: – (come to, make to) have dominion, prevail against, reign, (bear, make to) rule, (-r, over), take.] the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.

27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female.

28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruit, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, [ kâbash –to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: – bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.] rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over every beast that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given unto you every herb bearing seed, which is upon all the earth, and every tree, wherein is the fruit of a tree bearing seed: that shall be to you for meat. [‘ôklâh – food: – consume, devour, eat, food, meat.]

30 Likewise to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heaven, and to everything that moveth upon the earth, which hath life in itself, every green herb shall be for meat, and it was so. (emboldening added.)

There are key points to consider. Verse 26 refers to “dominion” or “rule” depending on which translated version you are using. That is why I refer back to the original written Word in Hebrew. The Hebrew word “râdâh” means to subjugate, to have dominion over, to rule, to take. The Hebrew language is different than our “English” language. One Hebrew word can have many meanings and uses. However, it appears this particular word has a narrowly focused meaning.

Yahweh commanded Adam to take control over all of these things and fill the earth but most importantly that all these things were provided for “meat” – meaning food to eat.

But I realized there are other issues at play here and therein lies many of the difficulties in sharing of those resources that our Creator gave us.

The first big obstacle might be that you don’t believe in Yahweh and that He created all things. Perhaps it’s Evolution or some other belief. That is fine with me. I have no intention of trying to force you to change your ways simply because you don’t believe the same as me. I only expect the same in return. You want to take all from me. I want only to take what is responsible to “fill the earth” and sustain, have dominion over, the resource to ensure its healthy existence. Isn’t that what Yahweh intended?

Which brings us to another very serious problem. Many people don’t care what millions of us believe and what we choose to practice. Their selfishness and greed cause them to demand – to demand such things as no more subjugating, ruling, taking, and having dominion over the beasts of the field, the fishes in the waters and fowl of the air for MEAT (food). They demand to deny me that gift of Yahweh and yet I demand nothing of them.

I have a deep appreciation of animals. They are Yahweh’s creation. But I also have a deep appreciation of what He told Adam was the purpose of those resources and it was not to let them become diseased and a useless object to only be looked up at one’s whim. To control, to rule over, to subjugate and have dominion of the beasts of the earth, fishes of the sea, and fowl of the air doesn’t mean hands off and let them do their own thing.

If it was intended by Yahweh that His Creation would “balance itself” he would have told us so and given different instructions.

He didn’t!

The Sin of Perverted Animal Existence

We read in Genesis 1: ” 24  Moreover God said, Let the earth bring forth the living thing according to his kind, cattle, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth according to his kind, and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kind, and the cattle according to his kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 Furthermore God said, Let us make man in our image according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.” (emboldening added)

We also know that during the time of Job’s sorrows of trying to understand why Yehwah was testing him, Yehwah spoke to Job as to why Yehwah was Almighty and Job was but a man. He reminded Job of who created and controls the wild beasts of the field.

We find in Job 39: It is I which have made the wilderness his house, and the salt places his dwellings.

10 He derideth the multitude of the city: he heareth not the cry of the driver.

11 He seeketh out the mountain for his pasture, and searcheth after every green thing.”(emboldening added)

Specifically in these verses, Yehwah is referencing the wild ass. He tells us that it is the wilderness where the wild beasts live, as appointed unto Yehwah and that the wild beasts “derideth the multitude of the city.” In other words, Yehwah causes the wild animals to stay away from the civilization of man.

However, in Leviticus we can learn that when man turns his back on Yehwah and sins against Him, He will control the animals to inflict punishment upon us if he so chooses – that is the result of our sin. Yehwah is constantly reminding us who is Almighty, and yet our eyes are blind to it.

Leviticus 26:21  And if ye walk stubbornly against me, and will not obey me, I will then bring seven times more plagues upon you, according to your sins.

22 I will also send wild beasts upon you, which shall spoil you, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number: so your highways shall be desolate.”

And in Psalm 8 we can read: O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the world! which hast set thy glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

When I behold thine heavens, even the works of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained,

What is man, say I, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than God, and crowned him with glory and worship.

Thou hast made him to have dominion in the works of thine hands, thou hast put all things under his feet:

All sheep and oxen: yea, and the beasts of the field:

The fowls of the air, and the fish of the sea, and that which passeth through the paths of the seas.

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the world!

Yehwah created all the beasts of the field for their purposes and tells us he placed them in the wilderness, not in the cities and places where man lives. Because Yehwah is Almighty, and although in his Creation he places man above the existence of all beasts, only Yehwah decides what His wild beasts will do and where they will go.

When man, placing himself as a god-man, attempts to know better Yehwah’s intentions for wild beasts, it only perpetuates the disobedience against Yehwah. If all of man lived according to the will of Yehwah, none of these problems would exist.

How man of today has come to perceive the role of wild animals in our world can only be described as sinful. Sin is what has caused Yehwah to send the wild beasts to come out of their wilderness, while man insists on keeping them from it.
