The translation of Enoch, illustration from Figures de la Bible (1728)

The Book of Genesis records that Enoch was the seventh from Adam, that “he walked with God: and was not; for God took him.”[1]

Enoch was a priest of the sacred fire and a priest of the Order of Melchizedek.

Enoch has spoken of the challenges of that life:

I have never regretted my step nor the steps that preceded it that drew me to the brink of a human debacle where my own life, according to my fellowmen, was adjudged a failure. And yet before the masters, before the great Brothers of Light, I was adjudged worthy to make my ascension and to be no more, for God took me. And I do not regret it, for the brief moments when mankind chanced to hold me in derision passed rapidly and the glory of the future in realms of light has been so wondrous that even in one moment of that glory, all the pain and anguish of human censure was erased and passed away.[2]

I have walked with God. For many a century, I have walked along the highways and byways of life carrying his flame as an emissary of the Great White Brotherhood. Oh, the walk with God upon earth and in the heavenly cities in the kingdoms of our Lord to sow the seeds of the Christ that they might spring up in the hearts of all men. You, too, may walk with God if you will but give thought to the fact that as you go about your daily tasks, mundane though they may be, you are engaged in a walk with God, and that walk becomes closer, an inner communion, the rhythm of his footsteps and his heartbeat, of his fire breath.[3]

So completely absorbed in his Divine Selfhood was Enoch, that the ritual of the ascension took place on one of those walks with God. So it can take place with each one who builds the momentum of the sacred fire with each footstep, each heartbeat. For with each inbreathing of the sacred fire from the throne of God, one can draw a little nearer to the goal of oneness with him.

Enoch and the fallen angels

There are a number of writings that have been attributed to Enoch. The most well-known of these is the Book of Enoch, whose main theme is the final judgment of a certain band of fallen angels, whom Enoch called the “Watchers” and their progeny. In one early chapter of the book, Enoch was himself sent to the Watchers to convey God’s message that they shall have neither peace nor forgiveness on account of their sins against him. The Watchers, terrified and trembling, asked Enoch to petition God on their behalf, which Enoch did. Nevertheless, God’s judgment remained against the Watchers, “Nevermore shall you ascend into heaven.” Enoch set forth this book for our wisdom, our admonishment and our warning.

We can call to the ascended master Enoch to judge the fallen angels and the origins of evil. Enoch says:

My beloved, I have petitioned the Father that I might speak to you from my heart and on behalf of Saint Germain. Some of you were with me in my life as Enoch. Some of you saw Atlantis with me. You remember vividly the temptations of the fallen angels, which had begun long ago in Lemuria. You know, beloved, that these fallen ones have drawn mankind in this hour to depths of degradation not thought possible.

Surely, then, all that I have written of the judgment of the Watchers must come to pass. Let my knowledgeable ones, well-taught by the messengers, understand the directing of sacred fire and legions of Astrea into the earth for the uprooting of the roots of wickedness and karma of these fallen ones as they are bound and taken from the screen of life and, following transition, clearly removed from the astral plane and from the planet.[4]

The closeness of Enoch to us

Lord Maitreya has spoken of our relationship with Enoch:

The treasure of the book and the many books written by your Father Enoch is still held within the very heart of the earth. Three hundred sixty-six books did Enoch write in the presence of God when he was taken up to the highest heaven.[5] But after this, the Flood came and no one yet has found these lost books of Enoch. Yet, they were read by his children before the coming of the Flood.

I desire you to understand that all of heaven has conspired together to deliver the Word of God, which God gave to Enoch, through these two witnesses. For this teaching to Enoch was for you personally—for all the descendants of light who came through Adam and reincarnated again, for every embodied angel who embodied for the rescue of the lightbearers. And these teachings now published in these publications are the very message which God secured to Enoch before his ascension into heaven.

I pray that you will pursue a study of this text of the Secrets of Enoch and that you will realize how close you are to that ascended master[6] and how dearly he loves you as Father and father figure in your midst, and how determined he is to promote your calling, your mission, and the spreading of the Word of these books and teachings until all for whom they have been secured may have them and make the choice to ascend to God as he did.

There is great fervor among all the hosts of the LORD, but there is no greater fervor in any than the fervor of your Father Enoch to deliver to you the writings which he himself wrote in the presence of God as his messenger. Do you see how you were all born to be messengers of Shamballa, to carry some portion of that Word—to live it, to internalize it, to be it as a pulsating light on earth? Remember the calling.[7]
