This post is about “The Book of Dreams” and things in it that stood out to me. This is the fourth of 5 books known as the book of Enoch.
Chapter 81 talks about these books being read by all future generations. It talks about gates in space. That there are 364 days in the year. That objects in space are round.
2Preserve, my son Mathusala, the books written by your father; that you may reveal them to future generations.
3Wisdom have I given you, to your children, and your posterity, that they may reveal to their children, for generations for ever, this wisdom in their thoughts; and that those who comprehend it may not slumber, but hear with their ears; that they may learn this wisdom, and be deemed worthy of eating this wholesome food.4Blessed are all the righteous; blessed are all who walk in righteousness; in whom no crime is found, as in sinners, when all their days are numbered.
5With respect to the progress of the sun in heaven, it enters and goes out of eachgate for thirty days, with the leaders of the thousand classes of the stars; with four which are added, and appertain to the four quarters of the year, which conduct them, and accompany them at four periods.
6Respecting these, men greatly err, and do not calculate them in the calculation of every age; for they greatly err respecting them; nor do men know accurately that they are in the calculation of the year. But indeed these are marked down for ever; one in the first gate, one in the third, one in the fourth, and one in the sixth:
7So that the year is completed in three hundred and sixty-four days.
8Truly has been stated, and accurately has been calculated that which is marked down; for the luminaries, the months, the fixed periods, the years, and the days, Uriel has explained to me, and communicated to me; whom the Lord of all creation, on my account, commanded (according to the might of heaven, and the power which it possesses both by night and by day) to explain the laws of light to man, of the sun, moon, and stars, and of all the powers of heaven, which are turned with their respective orbs.
Chapter 84 seems to be talking about where race came from.
1After this I saw another dream, and explained it all to you, my son. Enoch arose and said to his son Mathusala, To you, my son, will I speak. Hear my word; and incline your ear to the visionary dream of your father. Before I married your mother Edna, I saw a vision on my bed; (
2And behold, a cow sprung forth from the earth;
3And this cow was white.
4Afterwards a female heifer sprung forth; and with it another heifer: ( one of them was black, and one was red.
5The black heifer then struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth.
6From that period I could see nothing more of the red heifer; but the black one increased in bulk, and a female heifer came with him.
7After this I saw that many cows proceeded forth, resembling him, and following after him.
8The first female young one also went out in the presence of the first cow; and sought the red heifer, but found him not.
11Afterwards she calved another white cow.
12And again calved many cows and black heifers.
13In my sleep also I perceived a white bull, which in like manner grew, and became a large white bull.
14After him many white cows came forth, resembling him.
15And they began to calve many other white cows, which resembled them and followed each other.B
Chapter 90 Talks about the strong being cast in fire. I believe it is it is talking about those in power.
10In those days oppression shall be cut off from its roots, and iniquity with fraud shall be eradicated, perishing from under heaven.
11Every place of strength shall be surrendered with its inhabitants; with fire shall it be burnt. They shall be brought from every part of the earth, and be cast into a judgment of fire. They shall perish in wrath, and by a judgment overpowering them for ever.
