From The Ashes Of Angels – The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race

From The Ashes Of Angels – The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race


“And after some days my son, Methuselah, took a wife for his son Lamech, and she became pregnant by him and bore him a son. And his body was white as snow and red as a rose; the hair of his head as white as wool and his demdema (‘long curly hair’) beautiful; and as for his eyes, when he opened them the whole house glowed like the sun . . . And his father, Lamech, was afraid of him and fled and went to Methuselah his father; and he said to him, ‘I have begotten a strange son. He is not like an (ordinary) human being, but he looks like the children of the angels of heaven to me, his form is different, and he is not like us . . . It does not seem to me that he is of me, but of angels . . .’

I Have Begotten A Strange Son

These words form the opening lines to what must be one of the most astonishing yet chilling fragments of religious text ever written. They are the assertions of the antediluvian patriarch Enoch as he describes the sheer distress and horror that accompanied the miraculous birth of a son to his grandson, Lamech. The passage is taken from the Book of Noah, an ancient script of Hebrew origin appended to the more famous Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphal (falsely attributed) work, considered by scholars to have been put together in stages during the first half of the second century BC.

The predicament conveyed by these revealing lines seems manifestly clear: Lamech has recently taken the hand of a woman who has given birth to a child that bears no resemblance whatsoever to its immediate family. His appearance is entirely unlike other 'human beings', for his skin is white and ruddy, his long curly hair is white and 'beautiful', while his eyes mysteriously enable the whole house to 'glow like the sun'. From this specific appearance Lamech can only conclude that his wife has been unfaithful, since the infant resembles 'the children of the angels' who are 'not like us'.

This seems an extraordinary conclusion on the part of Lamech, and a very strange subject for a religious scribe to invent without good reason.

Hi Andrew Collins,

Thank you for sharing this article I suppose we should
re-examine those Cupid statues holding their Psyche's just think it was 200 of them that married Human Women and had children by them that grew too 3000 feet and were Cannibals.

Which clears up the mystery paintings of Cronus eating his children; now we can multiply those horrifying moments by the two hundred off-spring from those Fallen Angel's.

To say the World was a Mess would be an understatement.

Thank you God for sending The Great Flood wiping them all out. Binding their Father's in Heaven 2 & Heaven 5, that are both identified by Enoch as Hell.

So Hell is not of Earth but in the Vastness of the Universe somewhere. Thank God for changing their Wives in to Sirens; this is where the concept of Echo may have merged, since God declared that the Sirens wives of those Fallen Angel's, can only Sigh not Sing like originally thought but Sigh!

This is what I've been learning from Enoch 1 The Book of Watchers though I've read Enoch 2 Book of Secrets of Enoch, Enoch 3 The Book of Giant's, I did read the fragment of Noah I found out where Big Foot, & Abominable Snowman sometimes Snow Beast because they ate people.

Enoch 1 says that God changed the Angels children in to Evil-Spirits. This is also where the concept of Demonology came from due to this Judgement from God.

Since we People were defenseless against these Giant's and Monsters to save our lives God pit them against each other remember those And the gods fought in great War's Stories from the Ancient World?

Cronus against his father Uranus behalf of his Mom?
Zeus against Cronus on behalf of his Mom Shea?

Loki, Odin, Thor, Baldur War's?

How about that big Snake Thor fought? In The Book of Giant's that snake is the Leviathan the one who fought it his name is Oy*ha son of Shemyaza I think, I might have spelled that kids name wrong.

On a side note I was doing some research on a website First People's looking for Por Qui stories I read a story from The Iroquois and his name came up. Back to his name business Oy*ha I know it started with Oy and He fought with the Leviathan he killed it with his bear hands' but lost too the arch-Angel Raphael upon God's Command bound him and threw him in to the same prison as his Father Semyaza or Smeyaza in other words He's chained up in Hell.

By the way God judged these Children of the Angels because of their Behavior how they conducted themselves The Book of Giant's state God built them a Special Sanctuary to help them because it was not their faults they were born that was their Father's Crime.

Before, The Great Flood God tried reaching out too the ones who were more reasonable; but, they rejected The Olive Branch, when Methuselah died God gave Earth a 3 day Reprieve you know Stay of execution that was rejected.

The Great Flood was the only option left; or We the People would have gone, Extinct.

This is what I've come too learn from Studying The Book's of Enoch & Jubilees.

Again Andrew thank you for sharing this Book with me and this article it was exciting too read appreciate it.
